January/February/March 2020 Heritage Highlights
“If another believer sins against you, go privately and point out the offense. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back. But if you are unsuccessful, take one or two others with you and go back again, so that everything you say may be confirmed by two or three witnesses. If the person still refuses to listen, take your case to the church. Then if he or she won’t accept the church’s decision, treat that person as a pagan or a corrupt tax collector.” Matthew 18:15-17 (NLT)
To start off 2020 Rick Joyner posted on MorningStar’s website a new series, “They Changed the World.” This Word for the Week is the “American Revolution” and “Freedom.”
They Changed the World
By Rick Joyner
What kind of event could so change the trajectory of civilization that more advances would occur in just one hundred years after it than in the previous six thousand?
For the six thousand years of recorded history before this event, the basic elements of life for mankind did not essentially change. Food was gathered the same way, shelter was built the same way, and the pace of travel was limited to that of a horse. Before this event, the food needed to sustain the population required 90% of the people to be engaged in food production. Now it only takes about 5%. The speed of travel went from the speed of a horse to that of jets and rockets. What was it that became such a tipping point for civilization?
The American Revolution
Understanding how this revolution became the point around which the nations would make such radical changes is crucial for understanding the times we are in and the direction we are going. The basic answer to how this political revolution sparked a revolution in virtually all of life can be summed up in one word—freedom.

Jim Bakker’s New Year’s Eve Celebration – The Next 31 Things: Part 1
Click here or on the image below.
Emphasizing the Bible verse in Amos Chapter 3 verse 7 that says;
Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets. (NLT), Pastor Jim began his message with the understanding that if he did not deliver it to the people, he will be responsible and their blood will be on his hands.
So sobering were his words that he hesitated to speak about what he was shown. Yet, he knew from Ezekiel 33:6 KJV, “But if the watchman sees the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword comes, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”
One of the first things Jim Bakker spoke about was how the church needs to get over its anger with one another. He warned of more earthquakes, water & food shortages, and judgment, especially in places that mock God.
Speaking for over two hours he prophesied many things God showed him that lay ahead, and some of them were beyond belief. The entire message can be ordered from the Jim Bakker Show at: www.jimbakkershow.com
At Jim Bakker’s 80th birthday celebration, he was given a special coin commemorating his achievements in bringing the Gospel to the world through decades of pioneering Christian Television. He impacted the world through Christian TV with starting worldwide networks including The 700 Club, Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), PTL Satellite Network and the new PTL Television Network, all of which have brought millions of souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus.
These shows can be seen in their entirety on Jim Bakker’s website. Click link to watch the first one at:
On the 20th, AGAINST ALL ODDS, during the airing of the Jim Bakker Show, the contract for the new Voice of the Prophets Network was signed. This new network will provide 24-hour-a-day live broadcasting from Morningside Ministries in Blue Eye, Missouri. Because of his strong belief that we are living in the times Jesus spoke about just before His return, Pastor Jim has worked tirelessly to bring this network to life. On this memorable day, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame was the guest and gave his powerful personal testimony how he came from a world of drugs to the saving power of Jesus Christ, who then gave him the idea for the pillow he produces. In his new book “What Are the Odds”, he tells the story of his miraculous transformation.
Mike Lindell’s major success with My Pillow has given him the ability to help many ministries including giving $l million to help complete the 2019 motion picture “Unplanned.” He is also donating to Pastor Jim Bakker’s ministry to help more people be transformed by the Gospel.
Because of his battles with drugs, Mike Lindell is in the process of creating the Lindell Recovery Network for Addiction. He intends to build several treatment centers around the country to help those in bondage to drug addiction.

During the month, the Coronavirus suddenly took over the worldwide news as we learned that this deadly virus is killing thousands of people around the world in a record amount of time. The virus is reported to have originated in China. Sudden and deadly, this new pandemic has no vaccine to combat its aggressive killing capability.
After only a few weeks America came to a virtual standstill as tens of thousands of schools, businesses, restaurants, and churches stopped their normal operations. Churches around the country are going to web-streaming their services or have canceled them altogether. Major U.S. cities are shutting down except for essential services and asking their people to stay home.
Global Coronavirus Pandemic; Because of the worldwide outbreak of this severe novel virus we are asking people to stay in an attitude of prayer until it passes over.
Psalm 91:1 – 16 (NLT)
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.
If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
