Dream: America’s Four Anointings


By Gale Maiden   February 14, 2015


This dream was given to me the morning of Valentine’s Day 2015.



I was standing in my living room with my Bible lying horizontally in my hands. The Bible was positioned at about eye level and I could see the top cover.

 I heard repeatedly and loudly the words AMERICA’S ANOINTINGS.

While holding my Bible up near my head I began to walk about with great stirring of excitement and expectation.

On the top of my leather Bible cover were four locations which appeared as half bubbles rising from the surface of my Bible cover.

These bubbles were pulsating with the regularity of a heartbeat. It was as though my Bible was breathing and alive. These pulsating bubbles on the surface of my Bible reminded me of a blood vein displaying a heartbeat.


 I knew that there was something in the scripture that God wanted to bring forth concerning four anointings for America. I sensed that I along with many others would play a significant role in releasing these anointed words from God to the faithful in the body of Christ.  I knew that these four scripture revelations were so powerful that as I viewed them pulsating I experienced a bit of apprehension and did not immediately desire to open my Bible and search for them.

I knew that whatever these four revelatory scriptures revealed I was already learned and prepared to share. Once shared by trustworthy faithful men and women these words would bring forth good and great kingdom of God events for the church in America.

I then heard the phrase “four winds.” My heart was directed to the prophecy or vision of dry bones found in the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel, chapter 37.

End of Dream


This Dream Confirms that God has heard Prayers for America’s Restoration

While meditating on the dream I heard again the phrase four winds. This dream is most directly related to the vision given to the Prophet Ezekiel known as the vision of the valley of dry bones recorded in Ezekiel 37:1-14. (Also the four winds found in the Olivet discourse found in the synoptic Gospels and the Book of Revelation is directly related to the vision of dry bones.)

This dream is an answer to the prayers of saints worldwide; prayers desiring that America would repent and take its rightful place as a corporate priest of God in mediating life to the nations.


Who is the Vision For?

In Ezekiel 37:11 it is clear that this vision is pertaining to the whole house of Israel.

Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.

Ezekiel 37:11a NASU


Who is the Whole House of Israel? Is America Included?

Who is the whole house of Israel? Of course the whole house of Israel is pertaining to those who have a heritage with the nation of Israel. The whole house of Israel also includes Gentiles who by faith are grafted into Israel. Israel by definition means one who prevails in the power of God. Both Jew and Gentile now through Christ’s blood qualify to walk in the power of God therefore are included in the whole house of Israel.


Dream Focus: America as a Part of the Whole House of Israel

Ezekiel was shown dry bones representing the whole house of Israel. God asked Ezekiel “Son of Man can these dry bones live?”

The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones. He caused me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley; and lo, they were very dry. He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.”

Ezekiel 37:1-3 NASU

I along with many believers do believe that the dry bones in America can be resurrected from the dead. If we truly believe that resurrection is possible then we must prophesy to the dry bones.


Four Winds Anointing…Bone, Sinew, Flesh and Skin

The four anointing’s for America are represented in the vision by vital body parts. We are to prophesy first to the bones, then the sinew, flesh and finally the skin.

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ “Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause (1) breath to enter you (first the dry bones) that you may come to life.’I will put (2) sinews (strong tissue that connects muscles or flesh to bones) on you, make (3) flesh grow back on you, cover you with (4) skin and put breath in you (bones, sinews, flesh and skin) that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.'”

Ezekiel 37:4-6 NASU



This vision has four winds to give life to bones, sinew, flesh and skin. Winds or spirit are symbolic of the anointing. The anointing is God and is generated from our relationship with God.


Prophetic Progressive Revelation for Resurrection


The four body parts in the vision of the valley of dry bones are significant in that each one represents a chronological component of resurrection and restoration.

Bones are Foundational

The bones are foundational and structural. In restoration of a nation to a place of viability as priests of God there must be in place a solid foundation. That foundation is already in place and it is JESUS THE CHRIST.  I have been mandated by this dream to begin teaching these things to those whom God has entrusted to teach others.


Sinew is Unity of The Faith and Spirit

The sinew represents jointing, connectivity and unity. This unity is only possible through a working revelation of the foundation of JESUS THE CHRIST. Unity of the faith and unity of the spirit are one and the same. Faith is the spirit word of God. In our “christing” or anointing us as individual members of the body of Christ may hear our unique calling thereby bringing the body of Christ into perfect unity.


Flesh is the Glory and Power of God

The FLESH represents the glory and power of God displayed in the power of the spirit of faith. God revealed Himself in flesh. From Adam to the last child born God has revealed himself in the flesh of each person. This fully includes Jesus who is generated by the word of God as a flesh and blood man. Jesus came forth in the likeness of sinful flesh and victoriously resisted every temptation the world has to offer.

God placed Himself in fleshly earthen vessels so that His power may be revealed. Flesh is eternally liberated by walking in the spirit of our living God (I Timothy 3:16). The diabolical notion that flesh is inherently evil has for centuries done great detriment to the victorious revelation of our foundation Jesus the Christ. If flesh is inherently evil then Jesus would have to be deemed evil because Jesus was birthed into the earth in the likeness of sinful flesh.

I have often said that the most glorious love action by God is that He placed Himself in a pile of dust and declared life eternal. God’s creative intent is to have a dust man live forever. Jesus ever lives by the same breath which created all things.



Skin is our Righteous Identity in God


We are identified by the physical features formed by our SKIN. In the natural even our fingerprints and eye features are used to identify people. The skin is the life-giving cover and protector of the whole body. Skin is the largest organ in the human body.  Skin represents the covering or cloak of righteousness giving believers a full identity with the life of God. It is only in our true heart identity realized in Jesus the Christ that the restoration of mankind to his God given name and authority can come forth.


We as faithful and trustworthy teachers of the word of God must prioritize our efforts to restore our God given identity.


I found this wonderful passage of scripture in the book of Job 10:11-12. Job obviously prior to Ezekiel’s dry bone prophecy had a revelation of resurrection life as it relates to bones, sinew, flesh and skin!


Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews. Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

Job 10:11-12 KJV




Ezekiel the Prophet asks, “Can You Hear the Bones Rattling?”

So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.”‘” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.

Ezekiel 37:7-10 NASU


This vision by the Prophet Ezekiel of the restoration of life back to the whole house of Israel literally happened through the resurrection of Jesus the Christ and the subsequent outpouring of the holy spirit to Jews on the day of Pentecost. This restoration also includes the outpouring of the holy spirit to the Gentiles three plus years after Pentecost. This outpouring happened at the home of a Gentile named Cornelius.

 Israel by definition means to prevail in power with God. The whole house of Israel includes all who walk with God in His loving power.


Israel positioned with Holy Spirit Power for Resurrection

Just prior to Pentecost Jesus was questioned by his disciples as to the timing of the restoration and resurrection of the kingdom of God to the whole house of Israel.

So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time you are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority (exousia – power of choice) but you will receive power (Israel) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

Acts 1:6-8 NASU


The holy God breathed word of God is the restoration of the kingdom of God to Israel. The outpouring of the holy spirit on that day of Pentecost, if chosen and activated, would empower Israel to witness forever throughout the world. Israel means to prevail in power with God!


We are Made Priests of Life

Ultimately the end of the age of sin will come when the gospel of the presence of Christ is declared and witnessed in demonstration throughout the earth.

God’s elect Israel is chosen to witness His love and power from Jerusalem throughout the entire world.

The priesthood of God given to us through our High Priest Jesus the Christ guarantees the eternal life of God for all who will believe. We in Christ are priests after the order of Melchezedec who have the power of an endless life. It has always been the due season to give life. Leaders who obtain to the present tense resurrection made available 2000 years ago are truly the priests of life (Revelation 1:6, 5:10, 20:6).


Objective of the Four Winds: Bones, Sinew, Flesh and Skin

The vision of the valley of dry bones was not only literally positioned and set into motion at Pentecost but must continue by the spirit of faith to be activated until we witness worldwide resurrection from the dead.

It is the prophetic word of God breathed by those called and chosen to give life that will bring bones, sinew, flesh and skin declaring our God created wholeness. Again these are the faithful and trustworthy entrusted by God to teach others.

Many saints worldwide have been given key revelations which have been veiled since the days of Christ’s earthly ministry. I must emphasize that these are not new revelations but a rediscovery from the word of God. As my pulsating Bible seen in the dream would indicate, God’s heartbeat is to breathe afresh His life found in His word.


Positioning for a Revisiting

For several years the Lord has been depositing in my spirit His curriculum for this season of America’s restoration. It is an exciting exhilarating and life giving word that is again igniting the fire of life in the body of Christ.

Both individuals and corporate groups who are walking with God in America are about to take on a whole new appearance. Both will reflect the glory of God in Christ. The world is praying and waiting for the church in America to take its place as a priest in advocating and releasing resurrection power into the earth and heavens.


Apostolic Mandate 222

God by this dream is releasing me to declare an apostolic mandate for those who are called to the following:

The things which you (Timothy an Apostle) have heard from me (Paul an Apostle) in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

2 Timothy 2:2 NASU

This dream is a mandate to prophesy (teach) the whole house of Israel. We know that God’s people perish without knowledge. Life is in God’s word and as His mandated word is blown as wind upon the dry bones, sinew, flesh and skin we will witness Israel resurrected from the dead. Not just a few will be resurrected but the WHOLE house of Israel. Glory to God!

The four body parts represent the complete process of maturity unto the full fruit of the Kingdom to the whole house of Israel. These body parts each represent specific curricula mandated to bring full life to the whole house of Israel.

Those unwilling to have their hearts and minds stretched concerning their true identity in Christ will not take their rightful position in the body of Christ. Without a working knowledge of Jesus the Christ as the already laid foundation of the whole house of Israel we cannot properly restore!



As you meditate upon this dream from God ask yourself if you are one of these mandated apostolic teachers for this hour?

The curriculum which God has imparted over the last 15 years again is for the whole house of Israel and specifically America.

Only the faithful and trustworthy will witness resurrection through the all-powerful word of God.


God bless America!

PS I have begun teaching this God given mandate. Your trusted and faithful input is totally welcome.


Times for gathering with you in my home will be posted on www.fathersheartministry.com and also I will send out emails.


God Says, “Ask Me for Grace to Release”

God Says, “Ask Me for Grace to Release”

By Gale Ward Maiden

I have recently talked with more than one person who described the first half of almost every day as an outright conflict with God. Are you weary from your wrestling matches with God?

I think of Jacob who wrestled with Elohim and ultimately was renamed Israel. I believe that Jacob was not convinced that he was to be called Israel. Without going into detail do you think that Jacob’s adversary was himself?

Jacob had a major identity crisis. When Jacob arrived at the revelation that God wanted to bless him he released the name of Jacob for his God ordained name Israel.

Jacob could only be transformed by the power of God. When Jacob released “himself” he became Israel.

 What Do You Need to Release?

The nature of the name Israel is that we have prevailing power with God. God’s power will sever every chord of unbelief releasing us into faith and the precious promises of God.

In an unrighteous wrestling mode we are unable to receive from God because without God empowered release we are caught up in a death cycle of dead works. Dead works is a struggle of death.

Examples of God Empowered Release

As God is developing our ministry there is much that must be released in order for the anointing of God to be revealed. The Apostle Paul boasted consistently in the power of God’s grace which ultimately consumed him. Paul said, “I am what I am by the grace of God.” Paul knew that grace was always available.

God wants us well. Maybe you have a physical challenge and have been for so long desiring a healing. As long as one doesn’t believe that as an Israel of God deserving of God’s power there will be no healing. God is asking all of us to believe that healing is His wholehearted desire. God give us your power!

Again we are being lovingly pressed to ask God for His empowering grace to let go of any sickness and challenges. Whatever the spirit of God reveals that is a hindrance to the receiving of the kingdom of God simply ask for His grace or divine ability to let it go.

 And now I (Apostle Paul) commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

 Acts 20:32 ESV

Paul released grace to his church in Ephesus so that they would be empowered to receive their God given inheritance.

Entrusting you to the Grace of God for Release

I, Gale Maiden, a Preacher, Apostle and Teacher of the Gospel of the presence of Christ, entrust you to the power of God’s grace to release all hindrances; thereby allowing all the fullness of the kingdom of God to come to you.


Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation

 Spirit of Wisdom &Revelation

Opening the Eyes of our Heart so that we may Know Him

(Ephesians 1:15-23)

  • By Gale Maiden 

    There are key revelations being reintroduced by God at this season to the body of Christ. These revelations are not new but have been veiled through unbelief since the days of Christ’s earthly ministry.


    Word to Gale in 1989

    The spirit of God spoke this word to me in 1989 while on a ministry trip to Charlotte, North Carolina. The word which came to me particularly addressed the fact that the major revelations would come from the writings of the Apostle John. John penned the Gospel of John, I John, II John, III John and the Book of Revelation.


    Radical World View from the Spirit of Revelation

    God has continuously opened these scripture revelations over the last 26 years. God asked me almost thirty years past to pray consistently the prayer for wisdom and revelation found in Ephesians 1:15-23, My world view because of the revelations has totally changed. Everything from a Trinitarian doctrine to a “second coming” of Jesus Christ has taken on a fresh breath of life and joy. Abiding in God’s revelation word grants the church truth and truth makes us free.


    The Apostle John Knows God Things

    The Lord has specified the particular areas of revelation which when rightly understood and applied will bring forth a victorious church. The unfortunate veiling of the truth concerning these teachings is about to bring forth one of the most formidable challenges to the cutting edge church. Nothing like this has transpired since the days of Christ’s earthly ministry.

    I have personally encountered recently an increase in persecution from the spirit of religion which is the spirit of death. We must love as Christ loves the church and faithfully wash the church with the water of God’s revelatory truth.

    The one thing that these revelations have done is to help me find my true identity in Elohim and to know more about that which has been given to believers 2000 years ago in Christ’s death and resurrection. We must believe that God has an overcoming church who knows Him and the power of His resurrection.

    New Wineskins Full of the Wine of Revelation 

    Traditions of men have nullified the power of God. Hearts to which God has entrusted these revelations represent the New Church Wineskins. New Wineskin hearts are capable of containing the fullness of the spirit/word of God which is the wine of God. The earth and the heavens are anxiously waiting the intoxicating dispensing of the revelatory power of the Holy Spirit.


    My People Perish Without Knowledge

    The spirit of God has shown me that without the fullness of understanding on the following topics many will tragically perish:

  • Seek God with all our heart and He will be found.
  • How are we to relate to the geographical and spiritual earth, heaven and the highest heavens? What and where is heaven?
  • Our success in overcoming all things is totally in our identity found in Elohim our Creator and our God of Israel.
  • Will someone please explain the “trinity?”
  • Is Jesus God or a man? Is Jesus both God and man?
  • Who and how is Messiah the Christed one?
  • There is massive confusion concerning the spirit of antichrist. May be surprised to find that this spirit is not against Jesus but is anti-anointing?
  • Eschatology is so profoundly simple. The end exists in the now!
  • Is Jesus “coming” back a second time?
  • Rapture at ground zero? Acrophobia could hinder the traditional release of a rapture! (Ha!)
  • Great falling away…who falls from what to what? Man of sin?
  • The Book of Revelation is a full and complete revelation or apocalypse of Jesus the Christ and has been in place for 2000 years. Has Jesus come? Do we have the go-ahead to do the Book of Revelation?
  • Is resurrection available now? Jesus says yes.
  • What should the Church be doing in this hour?
  • What is the end of end times? The end will come when the 2000 year old revelation of the presence of Church in the earth is preached and witnessed.


Looking for Faithful and Trustworthy Teachers

Father’s Heart Ministry is opening the door to meet with those who may be entrusted with the word of God (II Timothy 2:2).

Great Grace from Paul’s prayer in Ephesians chapter one

Water Walkers


By Gale Maiden

“The entire sea crossing is about the water of God’s word. Those who believe will have the sea as a walkway through the storms and adverse winds of fear and doubt.”

Jesus the Christ man is our mentor. In his christed relationship with God his Father and our Father we are shown how that God has manifested Himself in the flesh of humankind (I Timothy 3:16).

Jesus is one in agreement with God. Jesus prayed that God his Father would make us one with God in the identical way that Jesus is one with God. God is the anointing. We are anointed out of intimate relationship with our God (Acts 10:38).

The following passage of scripture (Matthew 14:22-36) is to me one of the Bible’s most exciting examples of the mentoring of Jesus. The disciples are growing by leaps and bounds. Peter under the direct mentoring of Jesus went from only fishing from the water to become a water walker.

Jesus Expediently Separates his Disciples from the 5000

Immediately He made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away.

-Matthew 14:22 NASU

Immediately following the miraculous feeding of five thousand men and their families Jesus sent his disciples by boat to the other side of the sea. We see Jesus the greatest mentor in the universe sending his disciples, a fledgling group of water walking kingdom builders, to the next task. (Matthew 14: 34-36)

Jesus could have allowed his disciples to hang around and chat about the feeding of the five thousand. I can hear the conversation now, “Did you get any fish?” Someone says, “Yeah I did.”  Jesus purposefully sent the crowd away.

Jesus Goes up Mountain by Himself to Pray and is Alone

After He had sent the crowds away (those who partook of the miracle of the loaves and fishes), He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone.

-Matthew 14:23 NASU

Can you imagine what a refreshing time of prayer Jesus must have had after ministering to such a multitude of people? Twice the scripture says that Jesus was by himself praying and that he was alone on the mountain. Here is a beautiful picture of earth and heaven united in newness of heart through prayer. Jesus received no doubt a refreshing drink of the water of God’s instruction for his next task. Jesus was about to walk on the water of God’s word…literally!

Jesus Overland and Over Sea…by Foot to Rescue

But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary.

                                                             –  Matthew 14: 24 NASU

Jesus knew that the boat had traversed to a place far from the safety of land. Jesus saw that the waves of water were battering the boat and that the wind was adverse. Jesus immediately purposed to go by foot to check on his disciples. Jesus did not wait for another boat to come by but decided to walk on the water.

Fourth Watch…Key Time in Which to Establish Faith

And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.

                                                                         -Matthew 14:25 NASU

The fourth watch of the night begins at 3:00 am and ends at 6:00 am. It is called a time to watch. I am often awakened at 3 am to pray and watch in behalf of those brought to my attention by the spirit of God.

Multitudes in the world now are like these disciples doubting the ability of the water of God’s word to support them in a time of storms. Those of us who are mentors must pray and watch for these occasions to demonstrate the power of the water of God’s word to save us from death. We are all called to be water walkers fulfilling the universal fourth watch call to rescue others.

Water Walker Without a Body…Ghost or Man?

When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.

Matthew 14:26 NASU

This is a perfect example of how the fear of death paralyzes and brings into bondage the hearts of men. Jesus was recognized by the disciples but perceived as a ghost. This is significant in that the disciples reasoned that Jesus or anyone for that matter had to be bodiless in order to miraculously walk on water.

This false concept of separation of the spirit and soul from the body, a product of Greek mysticism, continues to this day to deceive saints into believing that only in a “spiritual or ghostly” realm can one perfectly walk on water. In the next verse Jesus simply declares that he isn’t a ghost.

It Is I…Not a Ghost!

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”

                                                                          -Matthew 14:27 NASU

Jesus asked the disciples to take courage and not be afraid. Jesus said, “It is I.” Jesus stood on the water before them as a triune man…spirit, soul and body. Jesus appearing in his savior role as an anointed man prompted Peter to do that which he saw Jesus doing…walking on water.

Doubting Peter “Cards” Jesus

Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”  And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus.

                                                                     -Matthew 14:28, 29 NASU

Peter asked Jesus, “Is this you?” Peter then asked for further verification of the Jesus he knew by asking, “command me to come.” Peter got out of the boat and walked on water toward Jesus.

We are all called to be water walkers. Many though still in fear and doubt desire to walk the walk of Jesus. It is up to leadership to lead in and subsequently command others to come.

“Up and Down” Peter

But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”  Immediately stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

                                                                -Matthew 14: 30, 31 NASU

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Jesus spoke a word to Peter, which if believed, Peter would have successfully walked both to Jesus and back to the boat.

When Peter sank into the water he did indeed speak a word of faith when he said, “Lord save me.” Peter’s faith found an immediate response by Jesus to pull Peter back into the boat.

Jesus rebuked Peter for not having the faith to believe for a successful water walk. Only when Peter doubted did his faith become small. Remember that Peter and the disciples had just witnessed the miracle of the loaves.

“FellowSHIP” Stops Adverse Winds

When they got into the boat, the wind stopped.                                                                                         -Matthew 14:32 NASU

Water is symbolic of the word of God. Wind is symbolic of spirit. The word and the spirit are inseparable (John 6:63). The adverse wind and waves represent a word of fear from the heart of Peter and brought about his sinking into the sea.

The calming of the storm came about as a word/breath (water/wind) of faith came from the heart of Jesus and obviously believed by all.

Water Walking Son(s) of God Ambassadors of God’s Provision

And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”

                                                            – Matthew 14:33 NASU

Worship is the Greek word proskuneo (pros-koo-neh’-o) meaning to kiss, like a dog licking his master’s hand. It is a canine from a prostrate position acknowledging its master as its source.

The disciples acknowledge Jesus as God’s son…a son who totally functioned maturely under the direction of God his Father. God is the source of all things and the disciples knew this very well. The object of all worship is to acknowledge God our Father as THE SOURCE of all things.

To worship Jesus a son of God is to acknowledge that Jesus is a son of God and thereby an agent of God our only Master and source. There are no gods to be placed before Yahweh.

Water Walkers Understand the Power of God’s Word

When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent word into all that surrounding district and brought to Him all who were sick; and they implored Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were cured.

                                                                – Matthew 14:34-36 NASU

The entire sea crossing is about the water of God’s word. Those who believe will have the sea as a walkway through the storms and adverse winds of fear and doubt.

After having crossed the sea we see multitudes beseeching Jesus to allow them to touch the hem of his garment. The hem of Jesus’ garment represents a reminder of the word of God (Numbers 15:37-40).

Just as the water by faith upheld Jesus and Peter so will it in faith uphold all that is released to us.

The Power of God’s Word in the Hearts of Sons

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom (Jesus who agreed with God’s word) also He made the world.  And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.

                                                                       – Hebrews 1:1-3 NASU

Rise up WATER WALKING sons of God and continue to bid others to come!

222 Apostolic Mandate

222 Apostolic Mandate
Recognizing Trustworthy and Faithful Apostolic Teachers
By Gale Maiden

The number 222 as revealed to me for my personal use is symbolic of perfect righteous choices. Our present home address in Moravian Falls, North Carolina is 222 Salem Drive. Before we built our home a prophetic word released on our property declared our home a place of teaching and imparting righteous choices.

Another 222

One of the mandated assignments spoken to my heart is given in the following verse of scripture which happens to be 2 Timothy 2:2.

The things which you (Timothy) have heard from me (Paul) in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

2 Timothy 2:2 NASU

Pastoral Apostles

I Timothy and II Timothy are epistles written by the Apostle Paul to his fellow Apostle Timothy. These men are mature Apostles, fathers and teachers to the church. It is commonly known that both Paul and Timothy certainly have a measure of pastoral gifts. The letters called I Timothy and II Timothy are commonly called by theologians the “pastoral letters.”

Paul and Timothy are more essentially Apostles who are called to train and entrust to faithful men the things that they have learned. The hope of their work is that newly trained leaders would perpetuate the apostolic gifting in teaching others who are faithful.

Apostles Imitate Our Apostle and High Priest Jesus the Christ

Ministry is best served when we realize that Jesus operates in all the ministry gifts and that the church has the same capacity. True apostles are those who know that in order to train leaders the apostolic ministry requires a full knowledge and activation of our God given equipment.

So You Have Been “Taught to Death?”

Most important is the ministry of teaching. Teaching is one of the key giftings in expanding the kingdom of God. As a lover of the teaching ministry I am encouraged that an end to an obvious historical disdain for the teaching ministry is at hand. This disdain is replaced with great joy in an anointed embrace of the profound teaching revelation now being experienced in the camps of the Apostles.

I have heard on and off for three decades from the not so faithful that, “We have been taught to death.” True apostolic teaching is now producing truth in love and new levels of freedom. Jesus said that the words which he speaks are spirit and life! We believe therefore we speak.

There has always been in place an apostolic teaching ministry but now like never before. Look and see that there are apostolic kingdom generating leaders. Without an apostolic teaching church view among leadership the church will struggle in accomplishing its God given mandate.

Do Not be Discouraged…Some Will Not Remain Faithful

Even among some of Paul’s associates there were men who did not remain faithful and trustworthy. At one point in Paul’s ministry in Asia Minor all who had begun with him forsook the ministry. Despite the unfaithfulness of many Paul never stopped encouraging the body of Christ. There are many sons of encouragement functioning successfully out of an apostolic heart of love and truth.

Apostolic Teaching – Foundational Beginning of New Testament Church

I am not one to promote a seasonal God. Due season for all things began with the resurrection of Jesus our Anointed. This particular apostolic work of resurrection is happening on a larger scale than ever before.

When the New Covenant church was birthed on the day of Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus it began as described in Acts 2:42.

They (the church) were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

Acts 2:42 NASU

The above apostolic teaching brought forth great awe among the multitudes. Indicators of true apostolic teaching which are signs, wonders and miracles are happening on a regular basis. Souls are being saved as the power of God and the love of God draws people into the kingdom of God. Today there are six million Muslims per year making decisions for Christ.

Where Are the Devoted Faithful Trustworthy Teachers and Leaders?

I have for three decades watched and yearned for those whom I thought would be faithful and trustworthy. God has such saints who are ready to move and are moving at the bidding of God’s spirit.

I understand that God is always at work producing faithfulness and trustworthiness in believers. 2 Timothy 2:2 has for two thousand years been a major heartbeat ministry emphasis of God. The church of Jesus the Christ is composed of faithful mature sons and daughters of God.

My hope and expectancy is now at its highest level in decades. There are apostolic faithful men and woman with whom God and true leaders may entrust the kingdom of God.

Lord thank you for joining Apostles heart to heart!

Let Us Do the Following…

Leaders do not be discouraged. God has surrounded the faithful with believers who desire to be taught and to impart to others that which God has given you.

There is freedom rendering revelation that has been veiled by faithless hearts since the birthing of the Apostolic Church. These eternally existing truths renewed in the hearts of the faithful are totally attesting to the love and power presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Simultaneously great affliction is accompanying the apostolic teaching ministry. I have witnessed this personally since 1992. The hearts and minds of saints worldwide are saying, “I have never heard foundational doctrines explained in this manner.”

The Lord recently told me to declare that there is a God given post script on the hearts of all saints; which PS is an acronym for profoundly simple.

God Has an Army of Teachable Saints

Without a teachable spirit there is no hope of entering into the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whether out of love or despair I agree with whomever that there are billions of teachable spirits ready to embrace the kingdom of God.

The Apostle Peter gave the following warning to those who would disdain teachings. Some non-teachable people were at that time suffering destruction because of a non-teachable spirit. These were unstable men who were distorting the Apostle Paul’s teachings.

Peter said, “Paul wrote some things hard to understand, which the untaught (non-teachable) and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of Scriptures, to their own destruction

II Peter 3:16 NASU

Continue to pray for God to open effectual doors of teaching (Colossians 4:3). These teaching doors are effectively birthing faithfulness and the full vision of the apostolic church…unto the glory of God. There is now an APOSTOLIC RESURRECTION COMPANY.

Am I in the Place of God?

Greetings Saints,

The Lord recently brought this question to my heart. Please consider this article in that it could mean life or death for those to whom you are called.

Am I in The Place of God?

By Gale Maiden

Most Christians know the story of Joseph. I must often remind myself that the same process of suffering which beset Joseph happens to most believers. The good news is that the end of the story of Joseph is resurrection for the whole house of Israel.

As we see in the following scripture Joseph, when being asked by his brothers for forgiveness, asked them a question, “Am I in the place of God?”

But Yosef (Joseph) said to them (his brothers), “Don’t be afraid! Am I in the place of God? You meant to do me harm, but God meant it for good — so that it would come about as it is today, with many people’s lives being saved. So don’t be afraid — I will provide for you and your little ones.” In this way he comforted them, speaking kindly to them (to their heart).

 Genesis 50:19-21 Complete Jewish Bible


Joseph demonstrated the glorious power of forgiveness. Joseph eloquently answered his own question when declaring that which was in his heart. From Joseph’s place in the heart of God he spoke kindness to their hearts, rebuked their fear and gave them all that they needed to sustain life.


Do not Become Bitter

The writer of the Book of Hebrews warns all who desire to become mature sons of God will require discipline. True sonship is the reality of being in the heart or place of God.

Rejected disciplines from God can sometimes create within the heart a root of bitterness. This root of bitterness can bring defilement to many around us.

See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;

Hebrews 12:15 NASU

Joseph could have become bitter and rejected his brother’s request for forgiveness after all that they had done against Joseph.

 Obviously through the God ordained process of suffering Joseph realized that it was not his brothers who controlled the big picture of that which God was doing in his life and the life of Israel.

The Hebrew word for place in the subject scripture literally means humble. Our place in God is a result of humility of heart before God and not the circumstances which surround us. Circumstances should never dictate how we perceive our relationship with God. As with Joseph his circumstances were all good and were a part of his place in God.

What the brothers meant for evil God meant for good. Joseph’s destiny or place in God through humility of heart was to save the lives of the whole house of Israel.


Rejoice…Our Father is Placing His Josephs

Our lives often look and feel like that which happened to Joseph. As Joseph humbled himself and submitted to the plan and purpose of God for his life there was deposited in his spirit a great faith deposit of compassion with the purpose of saving lives.


Let us Activate the Following…

The body of Christ is called to resurrect the dead. The first Adam through sin lost life but thank God the Last Adam Jesus has restored life to all who will believe.

Every man and woman has been given a measure of faith. Our measure of faith is our place of God.

Jesus said that he was going to prepare a place for us. This was spoken by Jesus just prior to the all-powerful life giving work of the cross leading to resurrection. Jesus lived on a daily basis a life of going to a place in the heart of his Father God.

Thank God for literal mansions but honestly I am more excited about my present place in the heart of God from which life may flow to mankind.


P.S. On a lighter side I have been thinking about doing a long term lease on my mansion. Since I am now in the place of God I have decided to place my mansion on the lease market. I have a call in to Saint Peter. Anyone interested? Oh by the way my mansion is in a pearly gated community. No need allowing it to sit unoccupied. Glory to God!


New Heaven and New Earth Tidbits

Greetings Saints,

While writing today on the kingdom of God vs. the kingdom of heaven I jotted down the following tidbits on the kingdom of heaven and the earth. Please email if any questions office@fathersheartministry.com or call 828 612 7251.

The importance of understanding the kingdom of heaven in its present nature is vital to successfully ushering in the kingdom of God in its fullness.

Blessings to all

My New Heaven and New Earth Tidbits
By Gale Maiden

Earth and the firmament called heaven were made visible on the first and second day of creation and together are called the world. What in the world?

• The Garden of Eden which is called Paradise is the eternal earthly and heavenly abode of all the children of God. Heaven and earth were renewed when our new creation Jesus was resurrected.

• The heart of man is the agent between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven! Whatever the heart of man agrees with will show up in the firmament called the kingdom of heaven.

Heaven doesn’t originate our word. Heaven is a reflection of our word from God given to us in the earth.

• The “Lord’s Prayer” says, “God’s will or word is being done on earth and therefore is discerned in heaven.”

• Jesus said, “Whatever we bind or loose on earth shall show up in heaven.”

• Every time that the dust of the earth is disturbed on a windy day it will show up in your heaven at about nose level.

Heaven in which I now live begins on the earth at the soles of my feet and goes upward until it passes the clouds and runs out of oxygen.

• Every character trait in humans is a heavenly product of earthly activity.

• God set the precedent for seed time and harvest when He took water from the earth and on the second day of creation sowed the water and produced heaven. Nothing has changed. Heaven will eternally produce that which is sown in the earth. Remember scripture says first the natural then the spiritual… first the earthly then the heavenly.

Seeing Transition as Righteous Change

Seeing Transition as Righteous Change

By Gale Maiden

Can change be defined as transition? Transition is defined by most dictionaries as a change from one state or condition to another.

Can a wrong understanding of transition do detriment to the truth concerning biblical change? Case in point is that transition is often wrongly thought to be a state or condition of limbo in which one neither occupies a previous state nor the state or condition hoped for.

Limbo thinking wrongly believes that one is somewhere in between two states. Limbo means to be on hold or in a state of non-activity. As a result transition wrongly perceived becomes a crutch and an excuse for not fulfilling the necessary faith actions to bring about the changes required by God.

To be in true Biblical transition is an exciting place of action leading to fulfilling of our destiny. One who is in true transition knows where he has been as well as where he is going.

The good news is that sons of God who are those being led by the spirit are never in limbo. Change in God is perpetual and is best understood as an ongoing present tense phenomenon.

…An Excerpt from My Book JESUS SON OF MAN ANOINTED


But Jesus emptied himself, (by) taking the form of a bond-servant, {and} being made (generated; caused to be) in the likeness of men.

Philippians 2:7 NAS


Many Christians wrongfully use this scripture to say that Jesus laid aside or emptied himself of his deity and came to earth as a man. This scripture does not remotely support such a notion. The purpose of this writing is to challenge the traditional interpretation of Philippians 2:7.

The key to rightfully understanding this scripture is to discern what it is that Jesus emptied and for what purpose. As we will see these passages of scripture are very clear in answering these questions.

Remember Jesus in his humanity functioned in the likeness of sinful flesh having a body of flesh and blood. Jesus was tempted by all that the world could offer.

One may draw as a logical conclusion that if Jesus is tempted as is all of humanity then there were things which he needed to divest or empty from within. Again it is of utmost importance to remember that wrong desires are not sin until they are activated in the heart! Jesus never sinned. If the man Jesus did not have fleshly desires then he could not have been tempted. Jesus dramatically demonstrated that he had within a will or desire to bypass the cross when he said concerning his God chosen death on the cross, “Not my will Father but your will be done.”


The Apostle James wrote…

Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one (including Jesus) is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own desire. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.

James 1:13-15 NASU


What is the Form of a Bond-Servant?

The subject verse says that he emptied himself taking on the form of a BOND-SERVANT. A bond-servant title is relegated to men who serve our God and one another. Those of you who are bond-servants to God and all of humanity know that it takes all of the deity nature one can grasp in order to become a bond-servant of God.

If we are to be bond-servants of God, it will take deity capacities in order to successfully fulfill this role. Therefore Jesus in his humanity had to lay aside the desires of the flesh…the root of temptation. So what did Jesus really lay aside?


What Must be Emptied from Man That Would Allow a Selfless Bond-Servant Nature? The Answer is Selfishness

It is obvious from Philippians 2:7 that whatever Jesus emptied out or gave up would allow a bond-servant nature to manifest. We know that Jesus is a bond-servant to God and all of humanity therefore Jesus was successful in releasing selfish desires.

The opposite of a bond-servant nature to God and humanity is a bond-servant nature which is self-serving. The preceding verses before Philippians 2:7 (specifically verses 1-4) gives us a clear description of both the true bond-servant nature and the wrong nature needed to be lain aside; to be lain aside not only by Jesus a bond-servant but by all true bond-servant believers.

If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not {merely} look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Philippians 2:1-4  NAS


Jesus was tempted in every way that the world has to offer. This present world offers desires of the flesh, desires of the eye and the pride of life. All self-desire comes under the heading of selfishness.

Remember that every man (including the man Jesus) is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires. Temptation is not sin. If Jesus was tempted in his humanity then Jesus had to have desires. We know that these challenges to Jesus in his likeness of sinful flesh never were acted upon; therefore Jesus never sinned.

This is where God wants all believers. Jesus by the grace of God (Hebrews 2:9) laid aside all desires of selfishness or empty conceit and made his priority the interests of his Father and of others above his own interest. Remember…temptation is not sin.


This wrong bond-servant mentality is self-love without the love of God. It is ungodly fear and self-preservation that keeps one from emptying out so as to take on the Godly nature of a bond-servant to God and humanity.


Jesus Functioning as a Total Man in the Spirit of Grace is our Prototype Man

Jesus, who is the most fearless lover known among mankind, is empowered in his humanity to be a bond-servant extraordinaire. Perfect love casts out fear. Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh and was tempted by all that the world could offer yet he never sinned. Romans 8:3 says that Jesus condemned or chose against sin in the flesh. The following two scriptures prove that which Jesus laid aside. He victoriously laid aside all solicitation or temptation to sin as we are called and empowered to do also.

How did Jesus do this? Jesus walked in agreement with the holy spirit voice of God his Father; therefore being full of grace and truth (John 1:14-16).


Not Considered Robbery by Jesus to Come into Agreement with God

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,

Philippians 2:5-6 NKJV

The word translated equal is the Greek word isos (ee’-sos) and means to agree. Jesus never considered it robbery of himself to agree with God in laying aside selfishness.


Jesus the Man Functioned by the Loving Grace of God

John 1:16 says that of Jesus’ fullness have we received and grace for grace. Jesus in His love empowerment victoriously condemned or chose against sin in the flesh rendering powerless the devil’s power of death. Glory to God forevermore!

For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God {did} sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and {as an offering} for sin, he (Jesus) condemned (chose against) sin in the flesh.

Romans 8:3 NAS


Since then the children share in flesh and blood, he himself (Jesus) likewise also partook of the same (Humanity…flesh & blood), that through death he might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.

Hebrews 2:14 NAS

In Conclusion

Jesus by the loving power of God emptied himself of all that would negate the power of a true selfless bond-servant of God. Every Deity capacity afforded Jesus has been given to bond-servants of God.

The irony is that the man Jesus by the spirit of God literally picked up deity abilities instead of laying them aside as has been wrongly taught.

Jesus the anointed man, called the Last Adam has forever restored man’s covenant of life. The first man Adam broke our covenant and since man broke the covenant, a man would have to restore the covenant. That man again is Jesus the anointed, the Last Adam.

Every selfish desire which would destroy our bond-servant ability has to be lain aside. Jesus in laying aside his own desires totally is fulfilling his mediator role in that he as a man ever lives. There is one mediator between God and man and that is the man Jesus.

There is no scriptural evidence found in the subject passage of scripture that Jesus laid aside “deity”. Again the Man Jesus, as all men, required the divine nature of God in order to successfully function as a bond-servant of God and man. This divine nature only comes in leiu of an emptying one’s person of selfishness by the power grace of God.

Let Us…

Search the Scriptures! Abiding in the word brings forth knowledge of truth and truth makes one free.




Mantle vs. Anointing


By Gale Maiden


Character, Character and Character unto Glory

God’s mantle is His character and glory. The character and glory of God is developed in us by an intimate relationship with God called the anointing. A mantle in the natural is a cloak or outer garment for covering the body. A mantle is used symbolically in the Bible as the righteous call and covering of God in fulfilling our destinies.

The Prophet Elisha received the Prophet Elijah’s mantle…the character and glory of God given to Elijah (I Kings 19:19).


Mantle Realized in Holy Spirit and Power Anointing

Over a period of time, Elisha by the anointing given him through his relationship with Elijah the man of God, eventually qualified and received a double portion of the spirit anointing upon Elijah. Elijah saw in Elisha’s spirit a great calling and sought to bring it forth into a full- fledged mantle. Also Elisha saw the character and nature of God in Elijah’s spirit and sought it with all that was within. Elisha said several times to Elijah, “As the Lord lives and my soul lives I will not depart from you (Elijah).”

The anointing in spirit and power comes upon God’s chosen when the mantle is fully realized. Elijah said to Elisha, “If you see me the anointing is yours…if not you cannot have it.” Elisha was required to see the character and glory of God our Father in the spirit of the Prophet Elijah.


My Father, My Father…

Elisha saw that which was required by God in order to fully possess the spirit of Elijah mantle as his own. Elisha’ declaration at the moment Elijah was taken up in a whirlwind was proof enough that he saw properly. Elisha did and said…

And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven. 12 Elisha saw it and cried out, "My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!"

2 Kings 2:11-12 NASU


Elisha saw the fullness of the spirit of Elijah mantle. Elisha called Elijah father and associated him with the protection of Israel, the children of God. The mantle of the spirit of Elijah is the Father’s heart in protecting Israel. Elisha came into the fullness of his mantle.


Jesus’ Mantle…Savior of the World

It might be said that the mantle points towards our destiny and calling and the anointing is proof of the mantle. Jesus at age 30 was fully anointed at the River Jordan and announced such a bit later in the temple. The mantle of God had been cast upon Jesus at his birth and thirty years later the fullness of his anointed relationship and mantle with God was revealed.

The process of coming into the fullness of the anointing began when the Angel Gabriel said to Mary the mother of Jesus, “You shall call (invite) his name (identity) Jesus.” Jesus means Yahweh saves! Every time the name Jesus was spoken it was in reality calling for Jesus to come into the fullness of his mantle in demonstration by the anointing (Christ, Messiah). The name Jesus Christ literally means Yahweh saves by the anointing. Glory to God forevermore!


Let Us Do the Mantle of God to His Glory

We are called having had the mantle of God cast upon us. Seek the fulfillment of your mantle; receiving and continuing your anointed relationship with our heavenly Father.

The spirit of Elijah is restoring all things through righteous and loving Father and son heart relationship (Matthew 17:11, Mark 9:12).

God desires to be fully identified by our mantle and the anointing!

You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about (in the fullness of his mantle) doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

Acts 10:38 NASU
