RE: [Awake4HisReturn] ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: HEAVEN XVI: Daniel, The Intercessor


When I think about wealth, I think about how many people I could help, and teach them abot Gods love. My sister says I am just telling my family to go to hell because I wont tell them they are ok staying in thier sin. I tell them they are to turn away from thier sin.

Heaven XVI:

Daniel, The Intercessor

Frank Villa is a recent (within the past year) friend, brother in the Lord
and co-laborer in the Gospel.

Among my friends I like to describe Frank as a fellow-investor in the
Kingdom of God and a broker of Kingdom opportunities. That may sound like a
funny way to describe him, but Frank has discovered that it is our
investments (our time, our labors and energies, as well as financial giving)
in the Kingdom of God that pay the kind of dividends which are reaped not
only here but in eternity as well. Whether they describe it like this or
not, Frank and Jan (his wife) have entered into a powerful covenant with the

Let me remind you of this rather remarkable covenant that Jesus made - and
this covenant applies only to those who don't draw back or withhold any part
of their existence from the pursuit of excellence in Jesus Christ. First
let me take you to the context of this covenant.

Jesus has just finished with His invitation to the rich young ruler to
forsake all and come and follow Him. The rich young ruler can't quite bring
himself to make that kind of commitment and leaves Jesus in sadness. Jesus
says to His disciples, "Children, how hard is it for them that trust in
riches to enter into the Kingdom of God."

He follows that statement by saying, "It is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of the needle (a very low and narrow gate in the wall of the city of
Jerusalem), than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God."

Because Peter and several of the disciples are fairly well-to-do businessmen
and fishermen, and have a rather abundant supply of resources, this shakes
him and he answers, "Who then can be saved?"

Jesus now answers Peter like this: "With men it is impossible, but not with
God: for with God all things are possible." The point He's making is that
the ability to prioritize one's life for the sake of the Kingdom and lay
aside possessions is a gift from the Lord.

Peter thinks about his situation, as well as that of James and John and some
of the others and seeks to make the point with Jesus that, while they have
plenty, their trust is not in their wealth and personal resources. So, he
responds to Jesus and says, "You see, Lord, that we have left all our wealth
behind and have followed you [not making our well-being and personal comfort
our priority]."

Now Jesus responds with a covenant statement: "Verily I say unto you, There
is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or
mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But
he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and
sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the
world to come eternal life." (See Mark 10:17-31)

Are you seeing and understanding the nature of this covenant? Our families,
our friends, our relatives, our wealth and possessions get bumped out of
first place in our priorities. Jesus obviously didn't care if people had
family and friends, wealth and possessions - in fact, He was promising all
that to them! What He was saying was, "You follow after me! You make the
Gospel of the Kingdom your priority, even if you have to walk away from your
closest family and friends, even if you have to walk away from your wealth.
If you'll do that, I covenant with you to make family and friends, wealth
and possessions my promise to you a hundred times greater than anything you
walk away from - not only now, but in the ages to come, along with eternal
life! But know this! If you have all these things and you are following
after me and making the Gospel of the Kingdom your priority in life, you
will have persecution because of it." (My paraphrased rendering from the
Greek text)

Whewww!!! How's that for a mouthful? You get it, don't you? His promise
and covenant to those who receive this gift from God to be able to set aside
their family, friends, lands and possessions is that He will restore to them
- IN THIS LIFE - all that they walk away from a hundred times over!

It's really the same thing that Jesus said in Matthew 6:33: "Seek ye first
the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be
added unto you."

I've said all that to say this: Frank Villa has made it his life's purpose
to promote every opportunity God has directed him to for those who have eyes
to see and ears to hear to invest in avenues which provide a financial means
to enlarge the Kingdom of God. He and Jan have entered into this covenant
with the Lord. It's the same covenant that Della and I have entered into -
hence our great appreciation for Frank and Jan.

Can folks get rich doing this? Sure. But the riches are not for those who
just want to have lots of money for themselves. The objective is to ensure
that those who are on the frontlines of the Kingdom doing battle with the
Enemy and taking back Kingdom territory stolen by Satan have all the
resources they need in order to accomplish the mission God has anointed them

Remember what I said in one of our last Coffee Breaks? Tremendous
opportunities are being given to many to invest in the Gospel of the
Kingdom. Those who hear the Word of the Lord and obey every command to
invest with their seed sowing and their abundant giving will see their
opportunities, their finances and personal resources multiply greatly. This
great transfer of wealth into the hands of God's people, however, is not so
they can build a collection of mansions, Rolls Royces or Bentleys (and it's
not that God objects to His people having these things!); the purpose for
this great wealth transfer is to capitalize on the moment so that the
Kingdom of God expands and multiplies in the earth. Our first priority as
believers is to extend the boundaries of the rulership of the King of Kings
and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ.

OK. Time for us to get back to our main discussion. Got a big carafe of
some dark-roasted Columbian mixed with some lighter-roasted Swedish coffee
sitting on the kitchen counter. Come on by and pour yourself a 16-ouncer as
we continue talking about my adventures in Heaven.

It was in the early spring of 1971 after returning from speaking at a Full
Gospel Businessmen's Convention in Phoenix that I dived into a three-week
fast. Other than some one-, two- or three-day fasts, I had never really
engaged in any fasting to speak of up to this time. Somehow I'd become
fixated on the Esther-type of fasting: that's to say, no food of any kind
and no water. I knew Moses had gone twice for 40 days without food or water
so it never dawned on me that it took a rhema and an act of God in order to
pull off something like that.

"No food and no water" was pretty normal to me and that's the way I dived
into this three-week fast. It wasn't until I hit the 8th day of the fast
that I realized I was in physical trouble. You've no idea how rough it is
on a person's constitution to be without water for eight days! It was in my
physical weakness that I flipped open my Bible the afternoon of that 8th
day. My Bible fell open to the 10th chapter of Daniel. In a split second
my conversation with Daniel (20 years before while I was in Heaven) came
flooding back and I suddenly knew it was OK to finish out the fast drinking
water. Even though Daniel could eat bread on his fast (it just couldn't be
whole bread or sweet bread), I felt restrained from eating any bread.

That fast finished and culminated with the miracle of Eskdale (if you'd like
to read that story go to this link -
&=&page_start=540 - and scroll down the page just over halfway. There are
three parts to this story.)

Picking up where I left off in our last Coffee Break, my questions to Daniel
now centered on his life of prayer, intercession and fasting.

"Where and when did your daily life of prayer and intercession begin," I

"My prayer life began in my youth,"
