I want to give you the " heads up " on a meeting coming up Saturday, June 4th. The organization I am currently affiliated with is called International Fellowship of Ministries headed by Joe McIntyre. He and I have worked together on a number of occasions, mostly I have led worship during annual conferences... the most recent last October with Bill Johnson from Bethel Church in Redding CA.
I have also worked with Burdell Austin, the Washington State coordinator for a prayer network headed by Peter Wagner (Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets are also affiliated). We have been talking for many weeks regarding the redemptive prophetic gifts of Oregon and Washington (both have distinctive yet uniform qualities) and how leaders must coordinate and communicate with each other.
Burdell is gathering together Intercessors from throughout Washington and the Northwest for a meeting she is calling a Cascade Consultation. Because we've had some contact in working together, would you pray about joining us?
We will present our pieces of the puzzle and listen together regarding what the Lord is doing in our region, in our relationships, and in His strategy for the future.
I am sure you will meet wonderful and humble servants passionate about God's design and promise for the Northwest. I know this will be one of many such gatherings, and it would be wonderful if you could join us.
If you are interested in attending this event, please RSVP to Burdell (her email invitation follows), but please let me know as well.
As you can see, Washington is pregnant with a fresh revelation of Christ Jesus and Oregon is pregnant with the mantle to overthrow the spirit of Jezebel. I know that British Columbia has been in travail over the sins of the land and very near birthing an unprecedented move of God, but I do not know the current prophetic words spoken over the Province. Fathering is a key word. God is speaking Life to us and the kingdom of darkness is vehemently opposing this. Our adversary would like to abort or cause miscarriage to keep these things from coming forth. Or he would like to drain out the life of these things once they begin to function and flourish.
I believe one possible way that this can be accomplished is through an earthquake/tsunami disaster beyond the time and degree that the Lord would measure in His work of judgment upon His adversaries and shaking the Church out of it's complacently. The door that allows the spirit of death to operate in our territory is still open, but many have been bringing it toward closure with repentance and intercession. Washington state was the first state to legislate a degree of abortion by demand and Oregon is the only state with a Physistian Assisted Suicide Law legislated by the people in the United States. These laws that embrace death have SELF WORSHIP at the roots. I have attached an interesting article entitled Jezebel's Affliction by Kriston Couchey.
Todd Bentley's "The Set Time" regarding warning of earthquake as God's judgment upon His adversaries and my article "Clarion Call to Avert West Coast Disaster" posted on www.ElijahList.com are not in conflict by cause us to seek the Lord for the wisdom of His ways and the ability to stand against the wiles of the devil. I believe Jezebel wants to "seal the vineyard" once again.
There is a need for corporate discussion to raise up a corporate strategy and anointing that is from God and not man. Darrell Dahlman has been seeking the Lord regarding the words released in Oregon and has been hearing from Him and has posted reports of the latest direction from the Lord on firstname.lastname@example.org Complete transcripts of Dec. 2003 meetings are also posted there.
Darrell will be sharing with us on June 4 as well as Joe McIntyre who has extensive history and insight regarding the territorial spirit of Jezebel.
Please RSVP to me as soon as possible. Thank you.

Dear Friends of PacificMinistries,
Almost seven years ago, I was meditating on Psalm 46.
God is our refuge and strength,an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress...."Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted in the earth."
The Holy Spirit began to highlight several thematic phrases which eventually became a song: Be Still. The writer of Psalm 46 begins with a declaration of trust and confidence in God, despite trouble, natural disaster, and nations in an uproar. I believe the Lord interrupts with his own quiet voice to remind us to "still" ourselves. Needless to say, I have sung that song often.
There have been many prophetic words spoken from well-respected national personalities concerning both the pain and promise of God's coming judgment and mercy. It is in all our hearts desire to remain confident in God's promise to be our refuge and strength. Our job is to rest. Our calling is to be still; and remind ourselves that he is God and He will be exalted among the nations and in the earth. Our confidence does not rest in our ability to accurately discern the times or seasons. Our confidence and trust remains solely in our ability to rest.
Some years ago, the band Delirious wrote a song entitled: Find Me In The River. Following is a portion of their lyrics:
Find me in the river...Find me on my knees
I've walked against the water Now I'm waiting if you please
We've longed to see the roses...But never felt the thorns
And bought our pretty crowns....But never paid the price
Find me in the river....Find me there
Find me on my knees with my soul laid bare
Even though you're gone and I'm cracked and dry
Find me in the river, I'm waiting here.....
This Sunday evening at 6:00, you'll find a group of people who are hungry and thirsty for an encounter with Jesus. We do not have a full understanding of what God is doing... but we are declaring our dependence and resolve to "Be Still and Know... He is God."
You are invited to join us.
