Word for the Pacific Northwest

A Word For The Pacific Northwest

Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis

February 2003

Over the last few years, the Holy Spirit has highlighted certain regions of the nation as targets for unique expressions of spiritual impartation and visitation. In many cases, the specific location has been determined, in large part, by “wells of revival” that were experienced in prior generations. It is as though the Lord is redeeming those areas and capturing lost anointing’s, and utilizing the prayers and sacrificial lives of earlier saints. This is certainly not the only thing He is doing but a significant part.

One such area has been the Pacific Northwest. Over the last three years we have made numerous trips to this region, as have others, by the instruction of the Holy Spirit. Bob Jones actually had a vision several years ago, in which he saw three “Eagles nests” being established in the Northwest. These areas of refuge will be utilized to provide prophetic training, power evangelism and serve as a launching for many saints into their calling and commission.

October Conference

Wanda and I did a conference in Coeur d’Alene ID this past October, hosted by Mike & Kari Browning. While there, a series of revelations were given concerning the region and the specific strongholds of the enemy attempting to hinder the Lord’s outpouring in the Northwest. In one specific experience, the Lord revealed how the adversary has released “cyclone fences” in his attempt to separate and divide the believers of this region.

In the very place in which the Lord is calling for harmony and fraternal affection, the enemy has released division and self-preservation. The Holy Spirit is granting a deposit of divine grace to eradicate the separation and bring genuine unity among a body of leaders within the region. The very fact that the enemy has targeted this area, clearly points to the divine purpose and destiny for the Northwest.

That is not to say that all separations and sifting has been the result of the enemy. There has been a measure of shaking taking place within some churches that has been orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. This has been for the purpose of refining certain fellowships in preparation for visitation. Nonetheless, the lines of division drawn by the enemy are clearly marked with envy, jealousy and strife.

One of the ways in which the seeds of jealousy will be overcome is by rejoicing with individuals and churches who enjoy some expression of visitation. Rather than allowing envy to enter, celebration will overcome the seeds of division and pave the way for divine favor and grace.

Bob’s Vision

A few weeks ago, Bob was given a clear vision involving the Pacific Northwest and the Lord’s heart for that region. Over the last nine years, I have heard Bob share hundreds of visions. However, rarely have I ever seen him as enthusiastic and emphatic as he was in sharing this revelation.

The vision began with him seeing a spiritual hourglass. He watched as the sand elapsed from the hourglass denoting that “time had run out.” It was clearly communicated that the time has now come for divine purposes to be established in “the land of beauty.” This expression concerning the land came from the Lord to signify His desire to establish “spiritual beauty” in the Northwest— clearly a place of natural beauty. The Scripture that accompanied this revelation was Zechariah 11:7.

So I fed the flock for slaughter, in particular the poor of the flock. I took for myself two staffs: the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. (Zechariah 11:7)

They are the divine staffs of “beauty” and “bands/unity.” Bob saw in the vision, a tangible release of glory and beauty that is represented by the beauty of the land itself.

This is pointing to a release of favor and covenant or relationship among the people, through the divine grace that is coming. It is the land of immense splendor and attraction. The Lord is announcing His desire for the Heavens to be open in the land of great beauty. The hourglass has run out of sand. This will be a new beginning.

Nature itself will declare the handiwork of God. It is the emergence of His righteous “staffs” to heal and restore hurt and wounded sheep. The windows of Heaven were opened in the vision and revealed, through nature, the beauty of Heaven in the Pacific Northwest. How beautiful and awesome it was orchestrated.

Spreading to The West

Once deposited, this spiritual provision will go from the Northwest to the west and down to as far as Phoenix AZ. Somehow Phoenix was involved in this revelation. It is an old well that people thought was dried and filled with debris but now will be flushed of hindrances and obstacles in order to flow freely. Somehow in this divine scheme, Phoenix and the surrounding area is important.

March Conference

One of the additional encouragements from Bob’s vision involved the leadership team for the conference. He saw there would be no division in the team. Instead, he saw covenant relationships and fraternal affection among the people participating. This will be necessary to touch heaven in a unified way to release the provision of Heaven to open the window over the Pacific Northwest.

He saw us, and those participating in the conference, as if we were sitting at a banqueting table- which he felt was the Psalm 103.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, {bless} His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; (Psalm 103:1-4)

The Heavens became an open window to provide the benefits of God. This is to pave the way for strong evangelism.

Strong Evangelism

Bob saw in his vision, a man we know and recognize as an international evangelist, especially among young people. This aspect of the Lord’s plan comes after the prophetic voice opens the window in the land of beauty. What is released in the coming days, will pave the way for strong evangelism.

He saw leadership teams coming together as a threefold cord- a very strong bond that is not easily broken. Bob saw a purging of the soul taking place in the conference through the worship. Once the soul of the people has been cleansed, it then allows for the beauty of the Lord to begin to fill them. It is to prepare a people to begin to enjoy the benefits of Heaven as described in Psalms 103. When we “eat” from the 103rd Psalm we have the strength to go forward.

Conclusion

Since receiving these revelations, we have discovered that Bob was in Coeur d’Alene 13-14 years ago. We have also now obtained a copy of the taped message delivered back then. It is interesting to discover that the essence of the word given at that time is the same as today. It outlined the Lord’s desire to bring unity in place of division and pave the way for strong evangelism that will touch the entire region including portions of Canada.

As we have pointed out in our newsletter, we believe this year is the beginning of a new seven-year season of the Spirit. It is a new beginning that will change the spiritual environment in which we live. These times will be characterized by the Justice of God, unveiling both the kindness and severity of God. We must strive with all that is within us to be trustworthy stewards of this heritage and guard, through the Holy Spirit, the great treasures entrusted to us.
