  4. 4. Final Edits February 28, 2004 PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Oh Father God, You know all things. How blessed I am to know that you know all things. For Jim & for Yvonne, and where they are, I Thank You And Praise You Lord. 1. OIL AND WATER MIXED a. Oil & Water. I just see oil and water. It’s just like there’s a sense that these two, other than the supernatural mixing, cannot happen. b. Shaking Things Up. I Thank You Lord, that you’re just really, even now, shaking things up. I feel it’s almost as if I can see like the salad dressing being stirred up. Just really being a mixture and bringing flavor. c. Pouring Out The Holy Spirit. I Thank You And Praise You for everything coming in, that You’re pouring out through Your Holy Spirit, through Jim and through Yvonne, into this work, that You’re bringing forth this work has been a work of Your heart. I Thank You And Praise You For That Lord 2. DOORS OPENING a. Opening Doors. And now, I just see doors, I see so many doors that You are moving, Lord, in such a powerful way to open doors and make invitation. b. Invitations. Jim, I see things that are outside of what you’ve been doing happening – Invitations. There are people who want to hear what you have to say. I feel like you’re going to be invited to go to other places, even in this interim, to speak and to share. I see you behind the pulpit and you’re teaching, you’re sharing, you’re preaching, you’re pouring out, finally. And it may not be that it was accepted where you were, but I feel like God has given you these outlets, that you can go, and you can share, and you can teach. And I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that those invitations are coming. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 1 of 13
  5. 5. Final Edits February 28, 2004 3. FAITHFUL IN A HARD PLACE a. A Hard Place. Jim, I feel like God has had you in a place, that he’s really…It feels very claustrophobic. It feels like the very air is being sucked out of you. I feel like there’s been such a hard place that you’ve been placed. b. Found Faithful. And God said, you know, I feel like God is saying in my heart that “You have been found faithful son. You have been found faithful. And I know that that cost you everything. It was such a sacrifice to keep your mouth shut.” c. Healing. And I feel it’s almost as if there’s been such a denying of you, or a casting down of you, or a rejection of you. I feel it’s caused such a bruising of your heart. And God is saying, “He’s healing that and what is ahead of you, son, is far greater.” PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 2 of 13
  6. 6. Final Edits February 28, 2004 4. THE BOX IS GONE BROTHER a. Melt Down Done. You can…you know…you talk about blowing the box off…the doors off the box…and the box is gone brother, because what He has for you, because you allowed Him to melt you down in this time. I feel like…you know…it’s almost as if He’s doubled your capacity. It’s almost as if there’s been an increase, because you’ve been so squished in such a tight place, it’s caused you to just be such a man of increase because of it. It’s almost as if…it’s almost as if there’s been… I see this…like a car…they’ve got their foot on the brake, and they’re like revving the gas like crazy, and the tires are just spinning, and there’s all this smoke and everything coming out…but it’s like the power of this engine of what God has given you…and then He’s going to take his foot off the brake and you’re just gonna go brother, like you never knew that you had. b. A Massive Engine. You have the engine. You have this massive engine. You have this massive ability to bring forth God, but he’s had you like in this really tight place. And He’s been imparting to you. c. Snakes In The Box. But, at the same time, the enemy, I feel like, has really just been taking advantage of the down time, where he’s just been…I don’t know…it’s almost like…I feel like there’s been snakes in the box. It’s like…I look down and I see all these vipers in the box… d. A Faithful Son. Like it’s just been awful and I can’t even imagine how bad these last couple of years have been to you to keep your mouth shut, but you’ve been faithful, Jim. That’s…I think… This is the first and foremost thing is that the Father says, “You’ve been faithful son.” You’ve been faithful to sit through that and allow Him to do this work and to ready these people. You’ve been a sign and a wonder to them. There’s been something about this whole thing that’s gonna make a whole lot of sense when the veil is pulled back. I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that you’ll give Jim eyes to see, give Yvonne eyes to see what You’re doing, what You have been doing.

  7. 7. Final Edits February 28, 2004 5. THE HARVEST IS COMING a. You’ve Been Tortured. Jim, the word that comes to my mind is that I feel like you’ve been tortured, like I don’t know what that is, but I’m going to just say tortured, tormented, whatever that is…I don’t think there’s a mortal on this planet that could really comprehend how much it has taken of you to be in this position. b. You Have Sacrificed. You have sacrificed and the sacrifice is so pleasing to the Father, that you were willing to put yourself, surrender yourself to this position, because He asked that of you then. c. The Incredible Coming Harvest. Now the harvest is coming in and the harvest is incredible. You’re going to have freedom to speak. You’re going to have freedom to go. I feel signs and wonders are going to flow from you like never before. I feel like you’re going to breakforth in such a realm of confidence, and faith, and signs and wonders, that God is going to move so mightily through you. d. Heartache. I feel like there’s been such a heartache, even to see Yvonne flowing in the freedom that she’s had. And knowing that that freedom was not yours, that freedom was not given to you. I just feel like the Father’s saying, “Son, you haven’t understood” e. You Understand The Sacrifice. But you understand the sacrifice that you had to make to lay down everything before Him, and to be silent was the hardest thing. But the sacrifice meant that the harvest could be great. It was like, you sowed your seed and now you’re going to reap this bounty back. f. Prepared Like A Sword. He’s been making you ready. He’s been preparing you. There’s been a lot going on inside of you, Jim. There’s been a lot of downloads. There’s been a lot of understanding. You’ve seen things in the spiritual realm during this time of being cloistered and separated, and even in a righteous anger that you’ve seen, you’ve been almost honed to this. I see this…you’ve been like a sword, you’re being prepared like a sword. There’s been such a banging of the metal, such a hammer against the metal, such a hot place, that you’ve just been melting. And there’s been such a sharpening element going on that you’ve been honed into such a weapon against this spirit of religion. Oh Lord, I Thank You And Praise You. I’ve never seen anything like this before. g. The Spirit Of Religion. I Thank You And Praise You Lord. There is such a wickedness afoot in this spirit of religion, such a contaminating force, and I almost feel like somebody’s poisoning the Bride. I feel like she’s laying out in a hospital bed, and somebody’s piggybacked her “IV” with some sort of poison, and she’s…just like…in some sort of comatose state,…and like…she’s just sort of glazed over. And I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that You have made Jim ready, as a sword, to go in there, scalpel, to go in there and cut away this cancerous garbage, this work of the enemy. I Thank You And Praise You Lord. h. A Heart Set Free. Jim, I just feel like the Father is saying, “Son, I’m setting your heart free. I’m setting your heart free.” Receive that Jim. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 4 of 13
  8. 8. Final Edits February 28, 2004 6. WHO IS THE ENEMY? a. Building Muscle To Fight. I feel like, almost as if God has been, at times, the enemy…you know…like it’s been really hard to tell what’s God and what’s the enemy here…like…heck…fire…I can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys any more. And I just feel like God is saying, “Son, I am not your enemy. I’ve allowed, I’ve allowed, I’ve allowed for things to happen, only to put muscle on you to fight against this thing.” b. THE IMPORTANT CONCERN. Because I’m going to tell you something, Jim. 1) A Giant, Religious Spirit. The thing that this is, is a giant that I couldn’t, I couldn’t comprehend how big…you know…I have seen something like this as a big, black, dark figure with red eyes before, but it’s far beyond a giant. A religious spirit is something that’s so incredibly large, if you weren’t, if you didn’t go through this season of sacrifice, Jim, you would’ve been destroyed by this thing. This was for your safety, this was for your good. If you had gone out there like Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a whole mess of muscle on you from the Spirit of God, you can, you would be able to take on what this thing is and what you’re called to. But, if you went out there like someone who was so anemic and just so frail, I feel the Father’s heart was like, “Son, I saved you from…I saved you from…total destruction. If I sent you out before you were made ready, I would’ve lost you.” 2) The Father’s Love. Everything in Him…I just feel the grieving in His heart, Jim, for you, that He would not suffer loss of you. He so delights in you and He loves you so much. And the thought of losing you, Jim, is everything to Him that He would not lose you, and that, if He was to put you in a hard place, at least kept you. And He didn’t lose you. 3) A Son To Send. And I know, I feel like, the sense of the Father, knowing how bad this has been for you, and the sacrifice has been so great, and the warfare has been so intense, but He’s got a son, now, He can send out into that battlefield that won’t die. 4) Acquired Weapons. You’ve got weapons now, son, that you never had before. You didn’t even know where you were capable of going with them or anything. I Thank You And Praise You God that You’re setting Your son free from this. You’ve made him ready for the seasons ahead. 5) Made A Warrior. He just wanted to make you a warrior. He just didn’t want you to get hurt. It’s like a drill sergeant. I feel like He’s been saying all the hard stuff to you because He just didn’t want you to die once you got out there. 6) A Life Saved. I Thank You And Praise You Lord that you are doing such a mighty work, and I know, I know that you had to be hard on Jim, but just to save his life, to not lose him. 7) An Enemy Without Mercy. This enemy, Jim, will give you no mercy. There is no mercy in the heart of this enemy, Jim. He will…you step out there, Jim, and if you’re not ready, he will take you down just as soon as look at you. He wants to destroy, he wants to kill, he wants to rob you, and there is no mercy in your enemy. He wouldn’t give you any of that. 8) The Huge Calling. What you have been called to, Jim, I can’t even fathom…the…this thing looks like so huge, I can’t even put my eyes around what this thing is. This is not to be treated lightly. This was not a walk through the park. This was not walking into something that you could change the heart of people. It would’ve been easier to change the flow of the riverbed than to do this if you were not made ready by the anointing of God. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 5 of 13
  9. 9. Final Edits February 28, 2004 7. YVONNE’S FREEDOM a. Led By The Spirit. I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that you allowed Yvonne the freedom to do what You had her to do. As she was being led by Your Spirit, she was very sensitive not to go beyond what the sheep were able to understand, so that she wouldn’t be sacrificed. But she was sensitive to know how much they could take, how much they could be herded or trusted or yielded to her. Even during this season, they’ve been seeing her heart, but she was worthy of being trusted. She brought something new and something scary. b. Building Relationship. And, I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that there was a relationship that was being built here that was far more important than in ever getting the fullness of the Spirit. There was something that had to be done about the messengers that You were bringing to them and the trust that they could give and how they could relax in Your presence and receive of Your Holy Spirit through its vessels. They were so fragile but were being made ready for the outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. And it wasn’t the people that were the enemy here, it was so much the enemy who was trying to darken their minds, lead them astray, get them all caught up in things that they shouldn’t have been caught up in, and such a temptation. c. Gentleness With The Sheep. I Thank You And Praise You, that Yvonne has moved in a beauty of your grace, an effortlessness, a fluidity that allowed the sheep to know that she wasn’t going to beat them, that she wasn’t going to shear them or clip them or snip them or cut them, and she wasn’t going to take from them, that she only want to give to them something that You so want to give to them. I Thank You And Praise You for that. Thank You Lord, Thank You Lord. 8. FAMILY MEMBERS I just see family members for some reason. I just wanna go there. a. Broken Family Members. Lord, I just want to follow You where you’re going with family members that’ve been really broken. I really feel that there have been family members who have really been trashed, like kicked to the curb or something, something there, a woundedness there. I’m asking Lord that You…their destinies are not thwarted, that You have so much more there for them. b. Healing And Destinies. And there’s a season for healing. It’s just ahead. Even as you’ve been interceding for family members, you know, don’t be burdened by this but allow just the continual flow of heaven into their lives. Don’t look at the wreckage or what they’ve been through or anything, because that’ll throw you off. But look to the vision of God. Because He says that their destinies are fully in tack, that you don’t have to be concerned because the work of the move of heaven will be mighty in this area. Know that He’s healing wounded hearts. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 6 of 13
  10. 10. Final Edits February 28, 2004 9. A PARENTAL BURDEN I just feel like there’s been a parental burden there, or something, like you had something for parents or something. There, I thank You and praise You Lord, that you’re lifting their burden, that they can cast their cares upon You, that you are just sustaining them. 10. A HEALING SEASON & THE PERFECT HELPMATE a. Flow Together. I feel that there’s a healing season here, that there’s really an area that you guys have to regroup that you really have to come into this place of understanding of everything that’s taken place. Almost as if there’s been, not a division between the two of you, but almost as if there has to be a coming back now that you flow together, like you’ve been flowing separately. But now God is saying, “It’s time to come back. It’s time to flow together in unison and oneness.” Because, Jim, I feel doors are opening for you to go to speak and to share. And Yvonne, that there’s that same opportunity in other realms, but there is something of coming together and getting the battle plan together, and seeing the vision together, and seeing the next step together, and being able to support. b. The Perfect Helpmate. Yvonne you are the perfect helpmate suitable to Jim. I mean there is no one on this planet that God recognizes nor has He anointed anyone else on this planet to be able to impart strength to Jim. And I want to say this…it’s very strange…I see Yvonne being tucked underneath your arm, Jim, that she is totally tucked underneath your arm…I Thank You And Praise You Lord, give us understanding into that, that helpmate suitable. c. Exploited. I feel like, I must just say this - It’s almost as if, Jim, I feel as if people have exploited your weaknesses in the past and that will no longer go on. I just bind that right now in Jesus’ name, that no one is going to bring up, or expose, or reveal any of your weaknesses. Only your strengths will be out there. I feel that there’s been something very underhanded done to you, Jim. I don’t know what that is. I think you’ve been told things, that they did not come to pass and you’ve been promised things that weren’t given or somebody said something very cutting. Lord I ask for any healing in this area of being undermined, or being less than, or kicked to the curb, or…I don’t know…all the verbiage there, Lord, that could be said of the wound d. Healing. But I feel that there is a real healing season here for you, Jim. And I feel like Yvonne is right there at your side, tucked right underneath…you know…your sore ribs. You know…where you’ve been really needing….she is going to be that impartation of healing to you PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 7 of 13
  11. 11. Final Edits February 28, 2004 11. YVONNE’S DOWNLOADS & COVENANT a. Downloads. Yvonne, I just know that God is going to give you such downloads of…even in this I feel that, whatever you get, you’ll be able to give to others at the same time, but it has to be given to Jim first. We have to see the fruit of restoration here, first. b. Covenant Insights. This is a sacred time. It’s not a time to share this outwardly. Because God is going to give you some really powerful insights into covenant, into marriage, into the bride. The bride is being made ready for His return, but He is not returning for slaves. He is returning for a bride and she is going to be responding with an intimacy and a romance, Father, we haven’t seen before. c. An Altar & An Outpouring. And you guys are going to be really an altar of that, a real outpouring of that. And people are going to see that strength, and see that beauty, and how you two work in tandem. d. In Ministry Together. There’s something so beautiful about the way that you two communicate, the way that you two move together in ministry. It’s a really strange anointing. I’ve never seen that before. How it’s not tag team, but it’s something beautiful. It’s almost as if it’s a choir, a duet, like two voices singing one song and the sound is like heaven. And I Thank You And Praise You Lord. 1) Covenant Love, And Covenant Marriage, And Covenant Ministry. How you bring forth these words, how you move in ministry, how you move in that anointing, it’s going to be staggering to the people because they’ve never seen this before, but it’s going to be so God, it’s going to awaken them, almost shockingly, to see how God moves through covenant love, and covenant marriage, and covenant ministry. 2) An Equality Of Anointing And Call. Because I feel like you guys have as much ministry covenant together as you do have marriage covenant. I’ve never seen that before. It’s almost like an equality of anointing and call. You’re so balanced, it’s amazing. I Thank You And Praise You Lord for all that you’re saying, for all that you’re doing. I Thank You And Praise You For This. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 8 of 13
  12. 12. Final Edits February 28, 2004 12. CHILDREN Are there children, or do you have children? (Yes) I thank You and praise You for these children, Lord. a. What The Children Saw. I just feel like they’ve seen so much. I just ask, Lord, that You give them great understanding, because I think they’ve seen so much of the things of the enemy that has come against their parents and how hard the road has been; and how their parents have been treated. Lord, that You would cover these children that they would not fear stepping out for You or that the enemy would not use this to come against them. Healing. I thank You for healing, for restoration, wholeness, whatever that is that they may need, after how they’ve been treated…I hate to say it…by believers. I just, I Thank You And Praise You that they are whole and they are blessed. And that You are overcoming every work of the enemy and there is no doubt within them, that they are so filled with faith, b. The Mantle On The Children. I thank You and praise You that the call of God, the mantle that is upon the children is so strong, I Thank You And Praise You for that. c. The Generational Covering Of Birthed Twins. The Covering is so rich. For the generations to come will be incredibly blessed because of what you two have done, you’ve broken a…it’s like, I see you two as twins in the womb. I see this sack that has kept you. It’s almost like a veil, and I see this poking. And it’s like this breaking forth, and there’s a gushing of the ambiotic fluid, and there’s the move of the river of God, and it’s just flushing out, and its just birthing the two of you through this tight place, and it’s almost as if I could see that there’s a twin to you two. You two can look into each others eyes, and you know what the other one’s thinking, your so twin to each other. Because you have been raised up in the womb together, you’ve been in a tight place together, you’ve held on to each other, and because of that, you move as one and I thank You and praise You for that Lord. And there’s a breaking forth. There’s a birthing. It’s the river of God. It’s the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and its bringing you to that place that God desires you to be. I Thank You And Praise You. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 9 of 13
  13. 13. Final Edits February 28, 2004 13. THE HARVEST a. Seeing The Harvest. I feel like God is saying to me, and I don’t know why or if this means anything, but I feel, to say this: That God says, “What you have labored for has not been in vain. You will see the harvest of this thing.” The Lord assuring your heart that all that you have suffered through was for the sake of this and that you will see the fullness of this harvest. b. Moving From Church To Church. I almost feel as if there have been times before that you’ve left other churches or something and you haven’t been seen for the fullness for the great move of God on your lives. Almost as if it’s been: “Well, we know your called but we never…but we’ve never seen the greatness of God”, or something, and it’s almost as if you’ve left other churches, and its always been you’re the only ones that are believing it and others haven’t been able to understand it or recognize it. I look…like, I see…like, a puppy, looking at a butterfly, who sort of tilts his head and says, “Well...well, what is this thing about you guys.” Like, “I don’t understand.” And then you left that church and you went to another church. And then that work was good and everything, but you didn’t really see the good thing of God there. And then I see you go here and it’s almost as if you get very weary and saying, “Well God, when is the breakthrough going to happen? When are we going to see some fruit here?” Like, “We’ve seen little things happen at the past church and, little things at the church before that, and everybody sort of looks at us oddly”, like well, “Well, what is this thing about you guys?” And I feel that the Father is saying, “Do not bite into what the enemy has been trying to sell you. You will see the fruitfulness of this. You have not labored in vain. You will see the fruitfulness of this thing, and people will recognize, and their eyes will be opened, and they will recognize this thing, and you are going to be honored for this where there hasn’t been the honor and respect before.” PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 10 of 13
  14. 14. Final Edits February 28, 2004 14. THE PATH OF HUMILITY FOR “A MINISTRY TO MINISTERS” a. Walking Low In Humility. But there has been always the path of humility, where you’ve just been walking low, keeping that low posture, just really allowing God to work in your hearts. But God’s says, “I’m raising you up. I’m lifting you up.” b. Recognition Among Leaders. You’re going to a great place in Him, where you will be recognized. You’re not going to be kicked to the curb. You are going to be recognized among the leaders. And leaders will entrust you with things. c. Relationship With Leaders. There’s a connectedness of relationship with leaders that I haven’t seen before. It’s almost as if they haven’t been able to embrace you before. And I don’t know whether they knew how to, but I feel even in other Christian circles, other church movements that have not known how to embrace, what is it that you are doing, what are you called to, almost as if there’s been a fog about it, something vague about it, like you couldn’t articulate it, or as much as you said what you are called to, they couldn’t get it or something. It’s almost as if it has been…it wasn’t for that season. d. Ministering To Ministers. Let’s just say that, but now you are coming into that season where you are going to be breaking forth and God is going to show himself strong on your behalf, and because of that, other leaders…you are going to be ministering to ministers is what I am trying to say, you’ll be ministering to ministers, you’ll be ministering to other leaders. e. Circuit Riders. If feel like…I know that this is going to sound like really strange…I see, like, a pony express or something. It’s almost as if…what do you call those type of ministers that would ride from one…(Yvonne stated – Circuit Riders)…yea, Circuit Riders. I can see you ministering to other ministers like circuit riding, like your….because of this you can minister to the leaders faster. If you can get to the head, it will flow down to the people. f. Connectedness And Relationship. And I can see where there’s connectedness and relationship and you are not going to be shunned anymore but you’re going to be…it’s because you’re so humble and that was the key here. It was the breaking of whatever pride or whatever was in us, that God was just making us humble so that He could use us, so that we could wash the feet of leaders and they would not be….you know… 1) Anointed Leaders. I feel it’s like David with Saul, like he said I won’t touch God’s anointed. Because those leaders are anointed. They just don’t know how to bring forth the move of the Holy Spirit. They’ve been bound by this spirit of religion. PRAYER WITH TESS FOR JIM & YVONNE BARBUSH January 31, 2004 Page 11 of 13

But, because you bring honor to them, and because you respect them, and you understand what it’s like to bound by this filthy thing, you give them honor and respect, and they can ease their heart. It’s like, you know, they’re opening their heart to you, because they know you are not judging them; they know you’re not attacking them. But, because you come so humbly and so low, that they just feel like, “Yea, I want whatever it is you’ve got. I’m listening. I know there is more. I’ve been hungering. God has been stirring hunger in my heart.” 3) Bringing Honor And Respect. And because you’ve done this in the right way, you brought honor and respect to them…you know…I want to say disarming charm, but it’s very disarming, this respect, this honor that you give them is so disarming of this thing, this religiosity, that they are willing to let go and open themselves up and trust themselves to your heart. And trust their hearts to you. And I Thank You And Praise You Lord that You knew the plan all along. You knew what it would take to get to the leaders. And I want to say, I fell like the Father is saying, “There aren’t many that are trusted with leaders, because there is something sacred, you don’t touch leaders”. g. Entrusted With Leaders. Leaders are anointed of the Lord. They are of a different realm. But He has trusted you with leaders, because you have been brought so low that He can raise you up so high. It’s like that skyscraper thing, you know…how they go down so deep, it takes forever to lay a foundation for a skyscraper, and it goes up so quickly and so high. I Thank You And Praise You Lord that you allowed them to go through this, and I can’t even touch that with a 10 foot pole. That is so sacred in the eyes of God, the suffering that you have gone through. But I fell like God is saying, “Don’t touch that. That is holy that is sacred to me.” It’s like this whole realm that’s only you guys, and only God, and only God knows how bad the nightmare has been of what you have been living through. But God says, “That thing is over”. That “There’s this time of coming out.” h. A Time Of Training. You know there’s been a time of training. You’ve been in boot camp for sure. You know, it’s just beaten you down at times, but I Thank You And Praise You Lord, that You preserved their lives through the very thing they suffered - It was that very thing that would preserve their lives; and that you kept them safe because of it. And I Thank You And Praise You for that. But there is a ministry to ministers. There’s a connectedness of relationship and it’s because of your humility. I Thank You And Praise You Lord.

You will And be able to take the mantle and not be twisted or poisoned by it. it’s all because of what you’ve gone through.” And I Thank You And Praise You For This Lord. Bless them and protect them.
