A Tribute To Apostle Curtis James Forbes

A Tribute To Apostle Curtis James Forbes

Went To Be With Jesus on January 29, 2011

This morning I am grieving the loss of a friend who has left behind a widow and four children. He was an upcoming apostle and a member of Apostles Today. Apostle Brett Wade was his spiritual Father. Curtis was on the cutting edge of what God was doing in His Kingdom. He was a now person, who often wowed the older ones with how God was using a younger generation. His prophetic gift was sharp and he just loved and lived a prophetic life. Loving Jesus with all of His heart one was not long on the phone with him where he was either listening attentively to you or expounding on something fresh from the Word of God. When my Dad died, he and his wife called my mom's home and prayed/prophesied to us. Earlier that year Curtis had given my Dad a call and had been deeply touched by my Dad's walk with the Jesus. I am so glad this older man and this younger one had a conversation that deeply touched both lives.

Curtis' fruit will live on! This morning I called our son to let him know of Curtis' death. Our son had visited NC and spent a few weekends over time in their home and Curtis had spoken many times into his life. Often through phone calls and emails Curtis patiently fellowshipped and talked about Jesus. He was a real genuine brother to me. To our son I said, the fruit Curtis bore will live on in what he has taught you and the things he spoken into my life and the lives of his family and others, too! He is now with Jesus and is fully healed of his battle with malignant melanoma. Free at last from this worlds encumbrances, free of suffering and pain, yesterday morning, he graduated to heavens hall of fame.

If Curtis could speak today his words would be, please pray for my dear wife and family whom I loved so very much. He spoke of them so often and they were treasures to him.

Today I sorrow but not as one having no hope. This brother deeply touched our lives and Proton Ministries touched so many. On Apostles Today there a tribute to Apostle Adrienne Hawthorne by Apostle Brett Wade. He penned the words so perfectly and so I have used them for Curtis' instead. They deeply say it all.

Curtis, I remember the pain of your departure, but by His hand I am healed with the joy of your remembrance.

In His Love,

God Is Waiting On You!


God Is Waiting On You!

I see the hand of God, waiting on His people to pray. I see the hand of God staid and unable to move, until His children pray. God's hand is moved by intercession. The hand of the Lord can do nothing until we pray and angels are dispatched to their needed destination. We ask the Lord to release His angels that they be dispatched to the nations of the earth. We cry out to the Lord and He hears and answers prayer. The Lord is faithful and will do nothing without revealing it first to His servants the prophets.

Be on the wall and in your pray closet when called. Hear the voice of the Spirit calling you into a place of prayer. A quiet place, secluded from all the cares of this world. Come into the prayer closet you servants of the Lord, come into your prayer closet and seek My face. I am waiting on your intercession to do many great and mighty works, so come into your prayer closet and pray. I am waiting on you, says the Lord.

18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Eph. 6:18-20 (NKJV)

Christ To The Nations


Christ To The Nations

This morning I emailed to one precious woman of God whose name meant follower of Christ. It touched my heart deeply that the Lord had placed a precious, prophetic woman of God in this nation of the earth. I had left her a note about my living in a certain European country as a child and she shared that she was born in that city. Afterwards I stood in my kitchen. God began to stir my heart and I prayed for that city, and the one she lived in and asked the Lord to raise up prophetic people and bring in souls from the nations of the earth.

God is looking at the nations of the earth. His will is that they will become followers of Christ. There are many hearts in the nations of the earth that are empty and searching and the Lord is drawing them in their discontentment. We need to pray for these youth that they will come in. Lights are throughout the nations of the earth and many are hidden, but soon they will be as Jesus spoke of, lights on a hill that cannot be hid. Each one will burn brightly and will bring many in. It is Christ in us that will bring men to himself, for except the Spirit of God draw a man He cannot come.

God is wanting the fruit of the earth to come forth in its season. He is speaking clearly that the youth need to be prayed for and that we need to stand by them and see that they come into the Kingdom. These tender plants will need to be nurtured, fed, and brought to maturity. Come forth, come forth, come forth fruit of the earth, the Lord is calling you to arise and call on His name. Call on Him and He will answer you. Call on Him and be a follower of Christ.

Men and women, boys and girls you who have been called, come into the Kingdom of God. Come before it is too late! Come that I might raise you up and use you to bring in the harvest in your nations. There is much to be harvested, much fruit already sitting on the vine and ready to be picked. Come forth and come quickly and you will be taught of the Lord much more quickly than the generations before you. For you are hungry to learn and are looking for a cause. I am the only one that will satisfy. Come to Me and I will satisfy the longing of your heart. Come to Me from the four corners of the earth, for the Father is calling such to serve Him. Come to Me and together we will bring in the sheaves.

The Fathers and Mothers in the nations of the earth need to be seeking Me for the harvest. Pray for those rebellious sons and daughters to come back home. They have been dedicated to Me and you have yet to see them come. Continue to pray and fast and seek My face and cry out for Me to save their souls. They will come in many are, broken and needing Me but they shall come as you pray and intercede. Never give up on a soul for I did not give up on you. Pray, intercede and believe me for I will give you natural, and spiritual sons and daughters and I will also give them sons and daughter’s.The battle is not yet over, fortify yourselves, seek Me for divine strategies, and bring them in. The nations are battling but this is making many so discontent that the will come. Pray for peace but be prepared to do battle for it, says the Lord.

to whom God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the nations, which is Christ in you the hope of glory: Colossians 1:27 Darby Translation

Arise, Prophet, Arise

Arise, Prophet, Arise

Know the faithfulness of the Lord in speaking into your spirit. Many are the lies of the enemy that have come against you for he has sought to destroy your faith but you have stood strong and resisted him. Do not doubt that which I have placed within you for in your time alone he has sought to whisper in your ear, falsehood. Did he not come to Jesus and ask Him a question? At a moment when His flesh was weak from fasting, did he not try and tempt Jesus. Then the Word was spoken and Jesus said it is written and after the third time of speaking the word, the enemy left him for a season. Do you think you are any greater than your Master? You are not exempt from more tests of your faith. The enemy is a liar through and through and there is no truth in him.

Stand strong, in the power of My holy Spirit for I am downloading much to you in this season. Know who you are in Me with new faith. Stand firmly planted in My Word for it is your life. You have much Word in you but with new zeal delve into My Word and study to show yourself approved. You have a teaching mantle in you prophet of God that has yet to come to its fullness. You have been called to combat the works of darkness and expose them. You have been called to set the captives free.

You know and understand the battle and have overcome and will yet be used by Me. I am moving in this time to bring refreshing to your battle weary body and would have you sit with Me continually. Times of refreshing are here. I would have you know prophet of mine that you are much loved by Me. I am your friend and consider you mine. Much has come against you and even spoken against you but you have stood strong in the past years and not wavered. Let Me rekindle our love in an even deeper way. My love for you is unconditional.

Allow Me to hold you in your disappointments, keep you safe in the storm and raise you up in your prophetic mantle as that victorious, conquering woman of God. Arise prophet of God arise, come higher, dig deeper and soar like the eagle you are called to be. That eagle that can see beyond the natural and discern the enemy at a distance. The discerning of spirits is being sharpened even more deeply and you know what spirit is operating when you see him working. You discern it in my body and discern it in the world.

Continue to sharpen your weapons of warfare for you have been called as a woman of peace but also as a battle axe and weapon of war. Take the sword of My spirit and cut through the works of the enemy. Even this day he has sought to discourage you but the thorn will not be removed but will be used as a reminder of all that you have been given is not without price and cost. That which you have disliked will be turned for good and you will be reminded, of all that I have done in your life.

Arise to your lives calling, arise. Rejoice prophet of God, rejoice, the day of the Lord is at hand even at the door. Do your first works, preach My Word without fear and do not receive the lie for you are perfect only in Me. You will be used to raise up those that have need of teaching. Feed them the food I give to you. Study for new nuggets of truth for My word is full of hidden treasure there for the asking. There is freedom at the foot of the cross for all and you must never stop preaching the word of the Lord for it is life.

Apostolic Fullness


The Lord is restoring apostolic fullness to His church. Apostles are being moved around, and many that have been hidden from view will be brought into the light for the world to see. Many that have been used of God in past moves are going home and the Lord is bring forth those that have been sharpened again and again for His purposes. Apostolic fullness is what I am hearing the Lord say to His church. God is setting His house in order. First the apostles, then the prophets, then the evangelists, pastors and teachers. Each important in this last move of God, but God is saying the apostle needs to be in place for the rest of the body to function. All things put into His Divine order. God is a God of order and the body is not complete without the mature apostle functioning in the body of Christ. There will seem a lot of confusion as those that have been in the limelight refuse to move but God is going to move them to their proper position. Pastors will be shifted. Each one of those in the five fold ministry will be moved for His purposes so that they are properly aligned.

God is looking for and coming for a church who is a bride that has her house in order. The apostle has an assignment that no other can fulfill and the church will remain in her immature state until we see the full restoration of apostolic ministry to the church. The older will teach the younger as Paul did with Timothy and there will be those that are fathered and mothered so that they will come to the place of maturity. Time spent in the body of Christ does not necessarily represent ones years of spiritual maturity. Spiritual sons and daughters will be born, taught, corrected, loved and matured in the faith so that the end time harvest will be brought in.

The enemy has sought to abort many of those called early in life so that their destiny will not be fulfilled, but as you seek My face for them they will come into the Kingdom, be raised up and used by Me. Pray for those that are called for My Kingdom purposes, daily, that the call of God will be fulfilled in their life. Pray for the fivefold ministry. Pray for the believer and the non believer that all things might be fulfilled. Pray for the nations that labourers are sent into the harvest field as directed by Me and that a mighty harvest of souls come in. Pray that labours are sent with the proper equipping so that they might equip others in the nations of the world. Bring them in. Seek Me and My purposes and wait on Me and then respond to the call of My Spirit. Wait on Me, seek me and bring them in. The Lord is setting His house in order.

11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4: 11-16 (NKJV)

Come Back To The Righteous Foundation

Come Back To The Righteous Foundation

If the righteous foundations be removed what can a nation do! If the foundation stones be removed what shall the people say? Are they awake that they might see with their eyes and hear with their ears?

What shall the nations of the earth do? Will they do right in the eyes of the Lord?
Will they bow their knee to the one true God and serve Him? It is now time to repent of sin? Let the nations of the earth hear Him! For the Lord is saying, it is time to serve Me. The end of all things is at hand.

Take time now and evaluate your success.Do you have success in your nation or do you lie to yourself? You have no true success or happiness without Me.

You have nothing for your idols do not profit. Your dollars die and you will have nothing in your hands but filthy rags.Give them to Me. Bend your will to mine you nations of the earth. Call on Me and repent of your deep sin and see if I do not forgive you.

Your governments rage.Your leaders exalt themselves as gods.Yet they will fall,they will crumble in a night and be no more. Let the nations of the earth do right. Let the nations of the earth cry out. Cry out what must I do to be saved.

Cry out and cry loud to the Lord your God and I will be a husband to you. I will take you and clean you off and you will be among the redeemed of the earth.There is pride that blocks your coming.

Lay it down. There is fear of man, give it to Me. Let all the nations of the earth fear Me for I am the Lord Jesus.Behold I come quickly. Love Jerusalem and pray for the Jewish people you people of the earth. Cry out and cry loud on their behalf for they are being cornered by the enemy but Ah Ha I shall return and all the nations will see Me stand with her and I will defend her. Nations of the earth know that Israel is My beloved and the apple of My eye and all the others that accept Me have been engrafted in. The one new man shall stand with Me, for I am My beloveds and she is Mine.

Call on Me. Answer Me for I have asked you questions. Nations of the earth will you come now and bow before Me. See the signs of the times. See the disasters. Do you not see the hour is late and the day of My coming is soon,imminent, even at the door? Repent you nations of the earth, repent of your sin. Call a solemn fast and turn to the Lord and see if I will relent of My plans and give you everlasting life. Let the peoples of the earth do right. Let them cry out. Cry aloud. Spare not but turn to the Father who is entreating you.

Come to Jesus now for I am the author and finisher of your faith. Come individually, come you nations of the earth bow down and serve Me for I AM the Lord.
