June 2013 :: Update from the Mission Field

By: Dawn R. Pietsch
As missionaries to the United States, Nathan and I are used to transition. We have grown accustomed to change, and flowing with the Holy Spirit. We recently left southern Oregon for northern California. We have the wonderful privilege to oversee a healing house for a couple of months.

As we have traveled the United States the last four years, we have seen the results of the past moves of God, the works of the forerunners, praying grandmothers, and prophetic words. We are living in the time when we can walk in more power and authority in Christ Jesus, because of the people who have helped pave a way for us.

The power of the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12.)

What used to take years of hard work is only taking months or weeks. I believe the youth are going to be walking in even greater signs and wonders. I believe they will have a double portion, like Elisha did. A reason why Elisha had a double portion was because of the strong foundation Elijah laid for him. It’s amazing to see the youth walking out their destinies with purpose and conviction. They are the "Burning Ones" for God. They can change the world and impact the Kingdom of God by the way they live their lives!

When they find the truth, they capture the Heavenly Father’s heart. Jesus is the way the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. (John 14:6.)

In Malachi 4:6, the Bible also says, He will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.

We are actually seeing this take place. Our children are coming boldly to the throne of grace, that they may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16.)

What’s also great is that we can all be "Burning Ones" for Jesus, no matter what age we are. If you have a personal relationship with Jesus, you have the Holy Spirit living within you. You too have captured the Father’s heart.

We can advance the Kingdom of God by bringing in His lost children. He is a family God, a relationship God, a personal God, a loving God that wants all His kids to live in eternity with Him. Jesus bridges that gap, and brings us all back to our Heavenly Dad. So why not say, "Yes" to that upward calling, and live life seated in the heavenly realm, positioned in Christ at the right hand of God! (Ephesians 2:6.) All believers are actually living in two places at once. We need to look at the things of this world with a heavenly perspective, and live from that realm. It’s an exciting journey living for God, but then, that’s the way it’s suppose to be!
