Keeping the FIRE BURNING!!!!!!

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on January 27, 2014 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Greetings folks this months thought comes from the thought of KEEPING the FIRE BURNING!!!!!!!!!! In a recent conversation with one of my preacher friends we were discussing how ANY CHRISTIAN can lose their FIRE..  So many things in our day that can cause that to happen; HOWEVER JUDE 1:20 reminds us to do this...But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the HOLY GHOST, 21: Keep yourselves in the love of GOD, looking for the mercy of our LORD JESUS CHRIST unto eternal life..  I would submit to anyone that in the time we are living in times can be hard to stay prayed up and in the Spirit.. And when things really get hard sing unto the LORD and if that doesn't help call a praying friend that knows how to get a prayer through the gates to the throne... It's important that we keep the FIRE going and flowing staying in the Spirit at all times.. And if NOTHING else get to a HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT filled service and have a spirit filled believer lay hands on you to stay filled withj the Spirit.. That is what our brothers and sisters in the LORD are for to help us on our walk with the LORD... Next month more from the throne of prayer and testimonies from friends about prayer times... GOD bless and LOVE yuns; Pastor Dereck

Contacting with new friends

hey folks just want to first say I LOVE YOU and you just can't do NOTHING about that... As I have grown a custom to doing whenever something comes across the line to share with you what has been given to me now..From another Man of GOD came to me this morning this particular word; GOD is saying to you I AM LEADING YOU along a way that is uniquely right for you. The closer to ME you frow, the more fully you become your true self- the one I designed you to be. Because you are one of a kind, the path you are traveling with ME diverges increasingly from that of other people. However, in MY mysterious wisdom and ways, I enable you to follow this solitary path while staying in close contact with others. In fact, the more completely you devote yourself to ME, the morefreely you can love people.. Marvel at the beauty of a life intertwined with MY presense. Rejoice as we journey together in intimate communion. Enjoy the adventure of finding yourself through loosing yourself in ME... What a mighty word from the LORD through a dear brother

The FATHER says today that you are a worshiper ordained to MY courts. Even as Miriam of old was a worshiper so I have mantled and Anointed you to bring forth the sacrifices of praise and honor in MY house. There is a difference between a true celebrant and a performing spirit says the FATHER. MY calling upon you is to bring oblations before ME that constitute the sweet smelling savor that moves MY hand to act. As you worship so I act; I act in your behalf and in behalf of those you pray for and care about. Worship is not vain religious forms but an act of intimacy whereby I bring you step by step closer to ME. When Miriam took her timbrel and harp she was not concerned with the entertainment value of that which she was doing. When you worship, mountains are moved and armies of the enemy are destroyed. As you worship destinies are launched and futures are changed.. This is worship as warfare says the FATHER and this day I have you for battle. Open your mouth and sing the war hymns of the Kingdom. Some of these songs you can find the lyrics, other songs will come directly out of your spirit. I will give you anthems says the FATHER anthems of power and transformation for that is your portion and that is your connection to MY Kingdom purpose... What a PROPHETIC word sent to me this morning and I wanted to share this with you today....GOD bless; Pastor Dereck

For the month going into DECEMBER after THANKSGIVING first let me say that I pray that each of you had a wonderful time spending it with family or friends whichever the case maybe.. Since the last time I was here to report of all that has happened there has been a few changes.. Still have my personal time with my pastor friends and my mentoring time with my pastors that talk with me every week.. A few weeks ago on Sunday morning I had laid my phone down in the lobby and before I realized it my phone was stolen.. Later on in the day I was able to call the number to find out someone had it and was suppose to return it that night.. However they hadn't I had to have it turned off before that happened i searched my account to find out that since they had it they had been using it.. Anyway THANK the LORD two of my friends and both of which  supports this ministry through prayer decided to help me be able to get a new phone service.. I am up and running now and just to let you know another fellow thought I was going to be depressed about my phone getting stolen has he been confused.. Anyway this month going into January plans are still in the making for mentoring/praying and new plans for a place to get this work started..GOD is up to something because the devil is fighting harder but he won't win..Until next time GOD bless you abundantly and much LOVE to you and you justcan't do anything about that

Update on ministry

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on November 2, 2013 at 11:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Greetings friends and co-laborers in the gospel.. Just wanted to share with you what has been going on with the last few months of ministry.. i will give you a brief summary of the last couple of months.. As many of you know I had the opportunioty of getting back to Greensboro,NC for family time during the Christmas time.. From there I was able to help Shekinah United Ministries with an event in April that actually became a few months of support with them during other events such as when they went to Hillsborough and Pittsboro,NC for several festivals.. In July sad to say my family lost our dear sister Cynthia C. Harrelson to heart failure.. A sad time of losing while at the sametime as joyous time of celebrating her ministry and life.. We had us some church and it was great getting to reconnect with old frienmds that she went to school with as well as friends of mine and the rest of the family that came to share with us.. During those months from December to September I have been doing alot of praying concerning the next part of my ministry journey.. I shortly found myself aligning with different ministers/men and woman of GOD where we basically  had a time of accountibility talks and lots of prayer.. And just to let the rest of you know I have a mandate from the LORD and walking in that daily.. In September I left Greensboro,NC and traveled to the beautiful state of Oregon. I am currently in Salem,Oregon ministering on personal levels with several about the LORD and the amazing thing is that the closer ones have for some  reason lost their way and even have lost the miondset of going to church.. Jesus said that HE didn't come to call the righteous to repentance but the sinner.. These guys have been turned off to the church and I really believe that GOD has called me to this place to LOVE them and show them the TRUE LOVE of GOD...So far each person has found me to be truely the servant of GOD.. While at the sametime on Monday's I'm involved in a  mentoring session with a fellow that has found himself to going into Pastoring.. He and his wife started  meeting in the middle of October and soon I am looking forward to going to Cave-In Rock,Ill to meet the folks and spend time with the pastor and church folks..The next journey has begun and looking into more doing and stretching forth..

Comparing EAGLES to CHICKENS???

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on August 2, 2013 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (0)

ISAIAH 40:31..But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint.. It's been said tremendously many times that if you want to soar with EAGLES you can't walk with the chickens.. Planly stated if you want ot DREAM BIG don't hang out with people that ONLY want you for what they can get from you but sow into people that want you to put your best foot forward and that speak LIFE into your spirit.. Within the 4 walls of the church there are people that are jealous of the Anointing/Calling on your life so much that they will tend to bring you doen to their level.. What one has to do is get around those that are going where you are going not where they wish they could go..get around those that have BIG DREAMS and BIG VISION and it's ,more than just mere words but actions.. When they go to doing an event their attitude comes with a BIG DREAM...SMALL MENTALITY folks never go beyond what is in front of them; they don't like being or getting dirty for the right reason..People who DREAM BIG take chances on things that differentiate them from everybody else..... Are you going to fly with the EAGLES??? or walk among the chickens????/ IT'S UP TO YOU

The PROPHETIC WORD or just non-sense talking

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on August 1, 2013 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The PROPHETIC WORD and gifts or Mantles that fall into this cateogory... Well first let me say this EVERYTHING that comes out of a person ain't always PROPHETIC or is it a word of wisdom or knowledge.. We in today's church have become a people that have seemed to want to receive something for nothing...Now let's use scripture,I(II) CHRONICLES 20:20 believe ye the PROPHETS and ye shall prosper this particular scripture has been taking and ran with.. If there is a word from the LORD especially for the Christian person it comes first by their time in prayer and conversation.. There will come times when a PROPHET may speak to a person concerning what the LORD may say to them because that person may not be listening.. And PROPHESY has to agree with the  word of the LORD the BIBLE..Now let me also say this again in this way EVERYTHING that people seem to say isn't PROPHETIC and should be treated as what it maybe just non-sense speaking... How can ONE tell the difference;one what GOD speaks to you HE will FIRST speak to you, SECONDLY that PROPHETIC word will confirm what HE has been speaking already to you in CONFIRMATION, THIRDLY it's going to bring peace to your spirit not confusion and FOURTHLY TRUE PROPHETS walk in integrity not laziness or slackness and they generally have an ear for what the HOLY GHOST is saying... So who are TRUE PORPHETS???? now there is a topic that the church needs to know while understanding their role in the churchand who GOD called FIRST in the church according to scripture not personal feelings.... You will find that in most things that it's all about scripture not personal feelings...When we use our personal feelings WE CAN MISS GOD but when we go by scripture then we have the right to judge that PROPHETIC WORD to see if it is from GOD or not and I have to say that I have seen both..

A Thought on Walking in your Calling/Anointing

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on August 1, 2013 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Today as I sit back wondering on things;Bible Study,Prayer and what it means to walk in your Calling/Anointing there is ONE main thought that comes to mind.. I want to focus on the Calling/Anointing that GOD calls us to and the main thought or thoughts pertaining to them.. First the Bible speaks of making your calling and election sure.. And then I see how the Calling/Anointing works; they work through a time of prayer and listening to GOD.. Some ministers have what is considered a powerful ministry while others have a drizzle it works when I guess they are allowed.. However those powerful ministers walk in their Callings/Anointings because it's the time that one spends in time away from things of the world and sometimes even people.. I have often heard that there is a price to pay for having the Anointing and operating under a heavy powerful calling with the LORD.. The Calling/Anointing just doesn't come because we maybe in a good prayer meeting however it comes when we as ministers get alone with GOD and do more listeniong then praying..Over the past few weeks I have learned that my personal prayer time has to be contigent on how much time I spend with HIM.. Another area that concerns me about the Calling/Anointing is when we tend to think that GOD is going to bring revival without planting seeds into it.. PRAYER CONDITION has to be the lifestyle not just a passing thought;UNFORTUNATELY today's people think that they can get by without that invested time of prayer that it takes to break lose things out of the way...unfortunately in today's times people are TOO DISTRACTED about everything else than seeing GOD move in their churches and I can understand why it is the church today ain't experiencing a move of GOD.. This topic is going in a direction that I will end up putting in a whole nother blog when I speak of what it will take to bring revival to the church...And that will be from a prayerful observation standpoint.. 

PROAWYER WALK-daily time with the LORD

Posted by PROPHET Dereck K.Harrelson on July 25, 2013 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (0)

July 25th...THOUGHTS!!!!!!! Today while on my PROAWYER WALK I go to thinking concerning EVERYTHING over the last few months.. I thought about why do I enjoy so much to get out in the early morning air and walk?? Or what is my purpose in doing this and why have I called it as such.. Well let me give a brief history; back between 2000 and 2004 I was getting paid to walk somewhere between 10 and 15 miles a day reading electrical meters..It was my time of PRAISE/WORSHIP and talking to the LORD which I found that I could and would do while walking in sometimes over barren times of heat and incliment weather... Alot of times it was either hot for months or cold for months so I got used to at that time an attitude of while I'm out here why not PRAY.. With that I have learned that this time is vital to having a great relationship with the LORD and hearing from HIM.. I have often heard some folks say you have to find HIM early whiile HE maybe found; TRUTH being the early morning hours is for me the best time to get out and PRAY/LISTEN because it starts the day off right.. It's like when people go out exercising in the morning there is something about that first few hours after waking up that makes the rest of the day AWESOME.. Plus early morning hours you can get out and done before the heat rush comes.. Now with all of that in mind; i have found that getting up that early in the morning LISTENING to GOD hearing from HIM makes the things that we can't understand more plausible and understandable.. I was talking with a friend/brother last night concerning how he got up the other morning at 4am, jokingly I said you could have called me or FB'd me I was up and he said (not jokingly) that was my time with the LORD HE woke me up to talk and I said I understand.. Why do I love getting out that early because I want to get ahold of GOD that is HIM and me time, it's a great way to get exercise to get the blood juices flowing and believe it or not it's an INTERESTING time to make new friends that otherwise you may not be able to make.. Coming tomorrow after walk another excited thought to give...GOD bless your day
