Vision and Revelation from Jane Hansen Hoyt

The Book of Acts is Coming Alive!

 I believe the Book of Acts is coming alive again!

 In the Gospels, we see the public ministry of Jesus unfold as we are told what “Jesus began both to do and to teach.”

In the Book of Acts we see the public ministry of the church begin with the life-changing encounter of the Holy Spirit inhabiting believers. 

Jesus was the prototype of the Spirit-filled, Spirit empowered life.  The Book of Acts is the story of the disciples receiving what Jesus received in order to do what Jesus did!

 Acts 1:4-11 (NKJV) And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”  Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”  And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.  But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 

Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.  And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven?  This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” 

It is significant that from the city of Jerusalem, Jesus said the gospel would be preached to all nations.  2000 years ago the Great Commission started and today, it is time for believers to finish the Great Commission. 

When Aglow was gathered in Jerusalem on May 5th with Asher Intrater, a Messianic Israeli believer, he shared that we were 2 days from the day Jesus rose into Heaven.  Amazingly, on the same day, almost 2000 years later, in 1967, Israeli troops recaptured the city of Jerusalem!  Yeshua rose into Heaven, into Heavenly Jerusalem, and on that same day, Jewish troops, who didn’t even believe in Jesus recaptured the city of earthly Jerusalem - the city of His historical seat of government, ending the times of the Gentiles. 

Just think, the same day He rose into Heaven to take His Heavenly authority, is the same day that the city was recaptured to be the seat of His earthly authority only 2000 years later! 

In Matthew 28 Jesus said, “All authority has been given unto Me, in Heaven and in earth.”  Both Heavenly Jerusalem and earthly Jerusalem belong to Yeshua.  He is the head of the Church and He is the King of Israel.  He will bring it all back together again! 

In the Book of Acts, we see that in Jerusalem, 2000 years ago, there were apostles who had a vision for the Kingdom of God.  Now, 2000 years later, the land of Israel has been reestablished, a remnant of faith within Israel is also established, and an Apostolic Council has recently been appointed by the Israeli Messianic leadership.

In these latter days, the Word of the Lord is going to come out of Jerusalem again because the Kingdom of God is at hand.  Aglow has a key role to play in the end times to help finish the Great Commission, to preach the gospel to every nation and for the Lord to pour out His Holy Spirit on all flesh.  (Acts 2:17-21)

Asher asked the group, “What if Aglow worldwide would receive a commission from the Apostolic leadership of the city of Jerusalem in keeping with the scripture in Acts 1:8?  You would be the same Aglow, with the same vision, the same fire, and the same worship, but all of a sudden you would be positioned differently in the Spirit.  You would have a new power because you would represent what has been reestablished after 2000 years in Jerusalem.  It is Jerusalem that has sent you out.  It would be the restoration of Acts 1 to prepare for Yeshua to come back and we want to be aligned in that way.”

At this point in the meeting, the leadership of Aglow present in Israel, and all those on the trip arose and came to receive this corporate commissioning as a people who are sent out from Jerusalem to be witnesses in every nation in the earth.

God is restoring something in our generation.  Acts 1 leads to Acts 2. Being “sent out” from Jerusalem is a significant step.  It is a Spiritual alignment that will release further the last day anointing and power to accomplish what was on His heart from the beginning.

All things are being aligned with Heaven for the fulfillment of the Great Commission in our generation and the return of Jesus!  

The Book of Acts is coming alive again!

Dear Jane,

I can confirm what you are saying. The Holy Spirit has been impressing on my heart for some time now that we need to let the Holy Spirit empower us in everything from the minute we wake until we close our eyes at night. We live in difficult times and are facing the wrath of Satin. The news and media are filled with negativity and TV and movies, video games and schools promote the glory of evil, witchcraft, violence, retaliation and vengeance, sexual immorality, and close the doors to God and Jesus.

Jesus and the father are reduced to legends and forms paganism. Christians are belittled on the screen TV and movie in this secular form of entertainment. The world has turned against the truth and tickles it's ears with lies. Without the power of the Holy Spirit flowing into and through us we are open constantly to attack. From the world and from the darkness set upon it by the demonic kingdom.

We need to put on the Full Armor of God and keep an open prayerful dialog with the Lord through the Holy Spirit everyday. Thus we can we ready for Him to lead and move us when and how He wants to in every situation. Without Him we loose the connection to God. He should be our dearest and closest friend. Everything should be tried through Him before advancing. I love the old commercial saying..........DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT HIM.

Dear Jane,
Our Aglow is only very young (3months old) and we are hanging onto seeing the miracilous happen in our Branch. I joined Aglow 3 years ago and saw the full picture of what God is Commissioning Aglow to do and I just drank from your teachings of Heaven to Earth. This is what we are longing for.
Thank you Jane.

Thank you for shared this amazing time with Asher so well Jane! I love this statement, "You would be the same Aglow, with the same vision, the same fire, and the same worship, but all of a sudden you would be positioned differently in the Spirit." What if this be the 'placement' that Graham has been teaching us about?

God bless you. In Acts 1 Jesus said that John baptized with water, but I baptize with the Holy Spirit. Why do we still baptize with water? I asked this of my pastor and he said it was a good question. What do you think?

Truly awesome to know we are released to do as Jesus did yet He went on to state 'greater works'! The mind boggles but the spirit dares to rise all because we have the authority of Jesus' name and testimony.

Could this be currency to shift from localized thermals to the collective updraft?

The Lord is doing a Great work, However. I would be cautious with the " NEW Power" Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. The Gospel has been preached starting in Jerusalem and headed west and now is coming back to the starting point. The days of the church are numbered and yes we must be about Our Fathers work while it is still day.

It was good for me to hear how JESUS PRESENCE is manifesting on the land of Isreal. He is the gospel. As we abide IN HIM,AND HE IN US, there is much fruit...HOLY SPIRIT flowing as living water. I think that relationship with JESUS is :partaking of HIM THE BREAD OF LIFE for greater transformation.

This spoke to me too, the role of Aglow. It seems that all the work done to date in Aglow has been for such a time as this, preparing people to be part of the 'end time army' of God, prepared to be harvesters. This revelation appeared as I joined the Aglow tour in May. It seemed that the unity, love and interactions were much greater than on past trips. Thanks for a well organized and fruitful tour.
