Algona, Iowa



Mark 6: 1-6:  "And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.   And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?   Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.   But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.   And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them  And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching."



Dreams from the LORD

Last night I had a dream where I was riding in this car in Iowa. My friend was driving. We drove on this gravel road and stopped where this lane led to the Jerry Shey farm. I got out of the car and there was Jerry Shey. He walked up to me; he was very angry and annoyed about something.

He said, “Mrs. Herman Kahn told me that I should tell you that I am sorry for what I did to you.”

I walked up to him and he started to back pedal to the mailbox. I answered very forcefully, “Just imagine that I was you! And I put my son in mental hospitals, had him pay the bills and then tell him that I paid for those bills!”

He got really bent out of shape and stood there totally shocked.

I walked back to the car, got in and my friend drove off.

Last night I had a dream where I was staying at a homeless shelter in Algona, Iowa.  I talked with some homeless guys for awhile and then I walked to this grocery store.  At the grocery store, I was walking down this aisle when I saw a relative of mine walking towards me—she was walking with a cane.  I walked by her and did not say hello.
I then walked towards this fast-food restaurant and there was General George S. Patton outside the restaurant; he was sitting down talking to several people  I listened to General Patton talk for awhile; some of the people were asking him a lot of questions.
It was a long dream; I don’t remember all of the details.  I have had three other dreams about General Patton, so I believe this dream has something to do with spiritual warfare:  exposing the devil and defeating the devil in Algona, Iowa (I was born and raised in Algona).

Last night I had a dream where I was reading a paperback book.  The book had a lot of prophetic messages in it; the important prophetic messages were in blue print.  I then copied some of these prophetic words down on some paper.
The next scene:  I was at this high school in Iowa—it was the same high school that I went to when I was a teenager.  I met a girl and a boy who attended that high school.  I gave them a copy of the prophetic messages and told them to make photocopies.  They were very happy to receive these prophetic words.

Last night I had a dream where I had hitchhiked to Algona, Iowa.  I walked inside this building and sat down at this table.  There were many people gathered there:  some were sitting at tables and some were standing and talking with one another.  It looked like a funeral dinner.
I noticed a couple of people.  One guy I went to high school with and one guy I worked with on the farm.  Then I saw a few members of the Jerry Shey family.  None of these people walked over to my table to talk with me.  There was someone else sitting at my table, but we didn't talk to each other.  I then got up and walked outside.

A Holy Man in an Unholy World


"The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world and make him holy, then put him back into that unholy world and keep him holy in it."

The Blood Sanctifies Our Walk


This is from the blog A Word in Season:
“…and Moses took of the blood of it,
and put it upon …
the great toe of his right foot”
Leviticus 8:23
Election, Godliness and Being Chosen by God

DISCIPLESHIP

“But know that the Lord hath set apart
him that is godly for himself:
the Lord will hear when I call unto him”
Psalm 4:3
It is the godly whom the Lord sets apart for Himself. It is the godly in character and heart whom God hears. It is in this context that men and women must consider God’s grace. God’s election by Grace must be coupled with man’s response. “Many are called, but few are chosen”. Teachings, miraculous deliverances, movings of His Spirit in signs and wonders and even His own goodness are no insurance of entering the Kingdom of God. Israel saw His manifest power as He laid Egypt waste and yet they failed in the wilderness and perished without entering into God’s purpose. It is essential for us to see and grasp the truth of God, His ways and His Holiness.
“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness”
1 Corinthians 10:1-5
Paul goes on to say that these things were written for our learning and admonition. These were people who grieved God. Despite all the miraculous signs and provisions of God, this generation fell short of God’s desire for them. They did not consider Him in their walk. They lacked the desire to please and bless Him by how they conducted themselves in their daily affairs of life. They went through life choosing the things that would please themselves rather than God. They saw His acts without ever discovering His ways.
“He made known his ways unto Moses,
his acts unto the children of Israel”
Psalm 103:7
We see this same truth in the New Covenant.
“But without a parable spake he not unto them:
and when they were alone,
he expounded all things to his disciples”
Mark 4:34
It is the disciples whom Jesus pulls aside to expound on the hidden truths of the parables. Disciples are those who follow Jesus. They live to learn of Him and because of this “…the Lord sets apart him that is godly for Himself…” They are sanctified by God for His purposes and it is these ones He consecrates (chooses and sets as living stones in the breastplate of His Holiness). These works of God are for those who choose Him, who desire to follow Him, discovering His ways and the wonder of His heart. Discipleship is the path into His Love. The verity of all true disciples will be revealed by the signature of in His Love in them.
“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another”
John 13:35
God’s love is the defining feature of His true disciples. Many who are religious will (as the Pharisees) love their own little circle; the stamp of a true disciple is one who loves God’s people with the same Love that beats within the heart of our Heavenly Father. This Love is characterized by a passion and concern for the spiritual condition of His people. Denominational ties are irrelevant as they only see One church, One Flock and One Body. It is a Love that seeks out God’s sheep and God’s approval and cares little about the approval of man. True disciples do not seek positions or prominence; they seek to function within the confines of His calling upon their lives. The mark of God in the life of a true disciple is one of serving God not men. This Love “seeks not its own things…”
“Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious; love is not vain, is not puffed up; does not behave indecently, does not pursue its own things, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth. Love quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 LITV
Those who seek the pre-eminence in the midst of God’s people are not His disciples nor are they His true sheep. Those who encourage the affection of God’s people toward themselves, rather than ministering that His people fall in love with Jesus, have not seen God’s heart. The desire of the true ministers of God is not to draw men to their church, fellowship or their person; it is to Glorify God in all things. The cry of a true disciple is:
“He must increase, but I must decrease”
John 3:30

Prophetic Dream: Kim Clement

Kim Clement, 1956-2016

This is from the blog Behold the Man Ministries:
Greetings,
On September 5, 2015, I had a prophetic dream about Kim Clement that deeply troubled my spirit. Several days later, I read news online about how he suffered blood on the brain and was in critical condition at the hospital. Because I do not know Kim Clement personally or any of his associates, I reached out to several leaders in the body of Christ and shared what I had seen and heard because I was so disturbed. I have spent more than two months praying in silence for Kim and now after receiving news this week that he has been attacked again, I feel I must share publicly what God showed me several months ago. I want to be clear, my hope and desire in publishing this dream is to release clear strategy to intercessors that pray for Kim and also warn prophets that will face possible similar situations in the future.
The Dream
I walked into a large cave and as I turned the corner, there were four large principalities that were huddled together talking. They all wore different types of armor and did not notice my presence there as I stood behind a rock and watched them from around 100 feet away. As I listened to them, one of the principalities, who had “Iran and the Middle East” printed on its breast plate, stepped forward and said, “I want Kim Clement dead. He cannot keep prophesying about Iran and the Middle East.” The principalities began to laugh and it sent a chill up my spine that I don’t have words for. Immediately, that principality and 2 others left the cave.
There was one demonic principality that remained and it had, “Death” on its breastplate. As I focused my gaze toward it, it turned and looked at the cave wall behind its back. My eyes instantly fell on a list of names on the wall. Many of the names I did not recognize, but it was names of prophets specifically. One name I did recognize was John Paul Jackson. I said to the Lord in the dream, ” Did John Paul Jackson die before his time? The Spirit said, “Yes“. I then said, “Where is Bob Jones name on the wall?” The Spirit said to me, “Bob Jones did not die before his time.”
As the Holy Spirit spoke that to me, I immediately woke up in my room and it felt as if I was sitting in the presence of Jesus. I sat up in my bed and said, “Lord, are there really demonic principalities assigned to take out prophets?” He said, “Yes“. I then received an open vision of John Paul Jackson’s book, “Needless Casualties of War“.
The Spirit said to me, “This book must be read by all intercessors and prophets if they want to stay off the hit list. Kim has engaged in warfare in regards to Iran and the Middle East that I did not legislate and it must be renounced for the curse to be lifted.”
Based off of this prophetic dream and vision as I woke up, I believe Kim Clement has been attacked by a demonic principality responsible for Iran and the Middle East and we as intercessors need to renounce any warfare that Kim might have engaged in that was not legislated from Above so that he may fully recover and live.
May God continue to release understanding into the rules of engagement when it comes to addressing demonic principalities and may the prophets and intercessors of the Most High God fulfill His purposes in their generation. Saints, we must have more informed and strategic prayer in this hour.
Praying and standing with Kim,
Jeremiah Johnson
