Prophecy: Expect Mighty Works in March
Beloved, have you been waiting a long time—but you have almost given up hope for blessings? If so, this prophetic word for March is for you.
I asked the Father what He wanted to say about this month of March 2023, and this is what He said:
“I love you with an everlasting love, so do you not think I will do great and mighty things on your behalf? Indeed, I will; and I tell you this month to expect Me to show Myself and My hand with My mighty works.
Beni, my wife of 49 years, died on July 13 of last year. She was the love of my life. We started dating when she was 16 and I was 19. We married two years later. I am a better person in every way because she was in my life. Together we have three children with three amazing spouses, and 11 grandchildren. Philippians 4:8 says to think on things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report and praiseworthy. For years I’ve told people that if I had a challenge in my thought life, all I had to do was think about my wife—because she was all of those things. It’s true. In this season, God is teaching me much about how He uses grief to heal and comfort us as He draws us closer to Himself.
Beni died after a long battle with cancer. For the last 15 months or so, I was by her side day after day. Cancer is a disease that we see healed regularly. And while she is now forever with Jesus, perfectly well, never to die again, those of us who remain are still facing pain, confusion and tremendous loss.
Pretending all is well when it isn’t doesn’t help. I must anchor my soul to who He is and what He has promised. Otherwise, I will spend my days wandering without a sense of purpose, never settling into why I am alive. Who He is remains the foundation of my life.
One Pastor’s Alleged Abuse and Cover-up Across Multiple Megachurches
“There’s nothing quite like waking up to discover that your church is being featured on an episode of ‘Dateline,’” Pastor Cal Jernigan wrote in a letter to Central Christian Church, the congregation he leads in Phoenix, Arizona.
Jernigan’s church has been under the microscope and featured in news headlines after he brought in Caleb Baker to work on their staff as the Lead Student Pastor and Associate Preaching Pastor.
On Feb. 12th Jernigan discovered Caleb was involved in a six month extramarital relationship with another staff member at their church.
