Ron Sawka Ministries

May 12, 2021; Sivan 1, 5781

Counting the Omer: Day 45

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound” (Isa. 61:1).

“He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Ps. 107:20).

God’s River of Fire Conference (Online)

How to receive and maintain the fire of God

Saturday, May 29, 7:30–9:30 p.m. (Japan time)

Beginning of God’s End-Time Harvest? Second Apostolic Age? God’s Ekklesia Arising?

Regardless of the name given to the era we now live in, we know God is pouring out His fire like never before. He promised that Jesus would baptize us in the Holy Spirit and fire (Matt. 3:11). This will be our second online Fire Conference. The focus is on both receiving the fire and keeping it burning in us for His purposes and harvest. Join us! (Available languages: English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Singhalese, and Tamil)

It’s Time!

This morning on MPP (Morning Prophetic Prayer), I felt both an excitement and urgency. The excitement had to do with a sense of the presence of the Lord. And the urgency had to do with God loving His people and wanting to help them.

This is why He sent Jesus in the first place. He sees the plights, sorrows, difficulties, and sufferings that abound. When I say “His people,” I am referring to them in the broader sense. Not everyone has heard the good news of salvation through Jesus, and many have not entered into His covenant. However, He still loves them. They are still “His people” in the sense that they are part of His creation. Even though they don’t know Him and may be far from Him, He still loves them and wants to help them.

Years ago when we first began doing healing ministry, I was asked to list the reasons why God heals people (physically and otherwise). We discussed several reasons, but the best answer was when someone said, “There are many reasons why God heals, but one thing I know is He loves people. That is why He heals.” Amen, amen, and amen!

So this morning as we prophesied, we were very aware of the Lord wanting to send healing or send solutions to problems. That reminded me of the twofold promise in Psalm 107:20—1) He sent His word and healed them, and 2) He delivered them from their destructions.

As I write today, I continue to sense this urgency. The urgency signifies it’s time for us to rise up and do the same works Jesus did. (Or perhaps more correctly—let Him do through us the same works He did while here on earth.)

God is always looking for a human vessel. Isaiah 59:16–17 [1] says He saw that there was no one to do it, so He Himself did it. He sent His Son Jesus. Jesus not only provided salvation for mankind, but also provides life for us now.

Jesus “went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil” (Acts 10:38). But after His death, resurrection, and ascension, He now lives in all who receive Him. Now through us, He can continue to do those acts of love of helping people, and setting them free. Galatians 2:20 states, “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live. Yet, not I but Christ lives in me, and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

The urgency is for every one of us to realize this and let Him live His life through us. Move into faith and miracles now.

I trust you are looking ahead to Pentecost this weekend. Let His mighty outpouring fill and overflow through you like never before.

Thanks for praying. Be blessed.

[1] “He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him. For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak” (Isa. 59:16–17).

The Month of Covenant and Blessing

Sivan: The Third Month of the Hebrew Year, May 12–June 10, 2021

God so very, very much wants to bless us. Just like a good husband wants to provide for his wife, or just like a father wants the best for his children, God wants to bless us. He does this on the basis of covenant. He is our Father. We may mess up at times; we may make mistakes. That’s not the key issue. Mistakes and failures are an expected part of the growing process. What’s important is to keep walking in the security and surety of the covenant He has made with us. Keep trusting. If you stumble and fall, get back up and keep on walking with Him. He truly wants to bless. Let this Pentecost be a time of shifting/holding onto our covenant with Him like never before.

The blessings for the month of Sivan may be found here.
