Importation and Impartation

Yesterday, I drove by a series of large
shipping docks that lined a deep-water port on the Columbia River near
Longview, Washington. Shipments from all over the world had made their way to
these docks to be unloaded by Longshoreman and sent to various destinations
across the nation. Many of these items arrived as the result of an order placed
by an import agent who brought goods into the United States from a distant
nation.

Later in the morning, I was in the middle
of a daylong teaching session at the Northwest School of Supernatural Ministry
in Rainer, Oregon. I was working through my prepared material on Prophetic
Alignment. Then the Lord dropped in my heart the unexpected words, “Importation
precedes Impartation”. Those words were not part of my original notes. I was
experiencing one of those moments when God adds to what I had originally
prepared because He wants to say something I had not planned. Later, during the
question and answer session with the students, someone asked me to unpack that
phrase.

The Church is in the importation business.
We are agents for the goods and services of Heaven. We import and release
Heaven on Earth through impartation according to the level of our faith. Those
impartations can come through a declaration, prayer, blessing or any act of
love. Each of these impartations is empowered by the Spirit according to
specific shipping and delivery orders.

God wants to bring a shipment of
supernatural goods and services to your community through the agency of your
faith. He is looking for spiritual import agents who will place
impossible-sounding orders for shipments of glory and goodness that
have the potential to radically shift the environment at the destination of
their delivery. It is time to set up your import and impart business. God is
ready to deliver the goods if you will place the order.

    Hello,

    Enjoyed your words very much. Someone must have printed them out to be found a couple weeks ago by a friend of mine in ministry, Isiah.

    I asked my brother, a research librarian to see if the author could be discovered that we could ask permission to use your words.

    May my friend use your words if he agrees to attribute the words to you?
