Database 1, Volume 1, Lesson 9
1. My body is so big Ted. My body is so big. So many think so small. Tell them to think bigger. My body crosses all boundaries of time and space. Tell them. Tell them. Tell them. Tell them My body encompasses so much more than they’ve been taught and to think bigger and not be tripped up by thinking small. Most people are small but they’re designed to be big.
2. I always expand the life, the experiences, the fullness of a person—when they let Me. You see Ted, I always have words for people. I always have My presence I want to share with them, if they would only come to Me more Ted.
3. Now tell them. Your ministry is centered around prayer Ted. You’re getting it. I have chosen you and you have chosen Me and when two choose each other and give of themselves to each other unreservedly, therein is power. Grace comes forth in measure not seen, not known, not experienced much. For most giving is done so with such reservation, such strings and attachments of what is wanted in return.
4. Tell them to want Me, to choose to want Me and just let Me be Me. Don’t require anything of Me except to allow Me to be Me in complete freedom. And what I will give them is more than they can ask or think. Because they think like man thinks. And man always desires to exalt himself, with pretense, with control.
5. Where I am is freedom, liberty, and a spontaneity of spirit that is always new, fresh, exciting, wonderful with a spirit of awe, gratitude, appreciation for who I am and what I’m doing.
6. There’s no need to get upset at news reports and react in your flesh to fears and fear that so many want to inflict on those they can influence. Freedom Ted. I am about freedom even when there is war all around you. My peace, My peace I give unto you and all those who will seek Me like you have sought Me. Peace. I am peace and I am so much more.
7. Tell them and keep on telling them. I am Me and I will open doors for you to tell them, to do what I’m telling you, beyond all boundaries and contemporaneous thoughts that may traverse through your mind about this.
8. Be Me. Be Me Ted. Be Me. Be My hands and feet and the flesh that is of Me that points them to Me and I will point them to the Father and the Spirit will help make us one. One Ted. One Ted. One.
9. Oh the joy, the experience of fullness, of deep meaning, fulfillment in oneness with Me, the Father, and the Spirit.
10. I mention these things and continue to reveal Me to you for you have asked. You have asked to understand the trinity, and so much more. and I will answer. I will answer. I always answer.
11. It’s just that so many don’t like My answers and so many don’t really want to hear what I have to say. They want to do what they want to do and I let them do what they want to do.
12. Oh Ted. Thank you for coming and bowing before Me and reaching into Me to convey your love for Me. I thank you. I thank you. I thank you.
13. Now teach people to pray. Lead them. I will lead you and I will lead them as you lead them to Me and I will instruct and I will help you help people know Me like I want to be known.
14. Time is short and getting shorter. I want My people to know Me in fullness, face to face, face to face in My presence where all flesh is stripped off their spirit and I deal spirit to spirit in a manner and way that exalts that which I want to exalt. I want to exalt Me in them as they also point to Me and the Father.
15. I will teach you. Keep writing. Keep bringing your tablets and your computer and whatever you want to capture My words and distribute My words, My essence of communications to you. Describe My presence to people. Learn to describe My presence and what it means to you and what I’ve done for you. Be discerning but answer the questions of the sincere who really want to know Me. Be discerning and be not sidetracked by those who seek your answers to destroy you or ridicule you, and there are always those around.
16. They know not what awaits them at the end of their journey here on earth. Those that have intentionally sought to destroy My people and My works, My words. They will be honored but in ways that they don’t want. Their terror will exceed anything known to man. Their terror, their terror, their terror will exceed anything known to man at this time. Tell them. Tell them and let them fear Me and who I am and what I will do with them.
17. I’m tired of people speaking for Me that don’t speak for Me at all, but tear at all I am doing and building in My body. The terror, the wrath that will come upon them is waiting and they will experience it. Tell them and be not afraid of them or their words for some will mock and ridicule and I know their names. I know their hearts and I know their future and if they don’t repent and submit to Me while grace is with them, I will destroy them and their terror will be great.
18. Now tell them, those who listen, that this church is of Me. First United Methodist Church is of Me, as are others. There are many churches of Me that truly honor Me. Wade Pascal is a man that has sought Me. That’s why I have brought you here to pray, to know, to know more and let Me give you more and let Me expand your view of My kingdom and My people. I want you to know them. I want you to know My body more and realize its not limited to the narrow view that some have taught you in the past. I am big and getting bigger. I am not small and I don’t think small. I am big and I want you to be big, big, bigger than your thinking is now.
19. Exalt Me and I will exalt you wherever you walk, for you are blessed. You are bold and you’ll become more and more radical as you continue to know Me more and sit in my presence and feel My pleasure and weep for the people I weep for, cry for those I cry for, intercede for those I intercede for. The more you know Me the more you know My heart for My people. The more you know Me the more you will know My sufferings and that which concerns Me and tears at My joy.
20. My people. I want My people to know you for you will point them to Me and you won’t be ashamed of Me and you won’t exalt yourself when I exalt you the way I want to exalt you. That’s why I can use you like I can.
21. Now go, go to Russia, go to Argentina. Go to all those I send you and I will send you many. Take and share My words. Speak My words. Speak Me and be not ashamed. Don’t worry that you are “only” reading My words to them, words that I’ve given you. Give them Me, give them My body. Teach them to love communion and experience the power of “doing this in remembrance of Me.”
22. Teach them what I’ve given you about the new covenant and what I give you on it. It must be spoken, taught, preached, written and permeated into the hearts of those that will lead others to Me. I am new and I am not old. I will never be old and let them know that. I am is speaking and I will speak more. Now go, go grow and speak My words in power and I will open doors. I will pull down walls. I will give you bridges over trenches and moats and things that deter those not intent on carrying My words forth. Go and grow and grow all that will listen. Mature, correct in love, express concern when you’re concerned and say I don’t know when you don’t know.
23. You’re growing Ted, and I will grow all those around you if you keep growing and shrink not back from that which I have for you. For I have for you—the desires of your heart—if you will but seek Me and continue to seek Me and continue to write and not be absorbed into the systems of man and their splendor and their gold and their control.
24. Don’t let people use you. Let Me use you. Give and I will give and I will give you more and I will give you more till the day, the moment, I usher you into My presence, physically, and we walk and talk and discuss the things that still concerned you.
25. Now go and don’t worry about all that is happening in your family. Don’t worry about it. I’ve told you it’s of Me and I am in it. Now go and grow and mature and I will go and grow and mature those in your family to take advantage of your heritage—their heritage in you and what you have paved the way for. Their end shall be great for I have heard your many tears and seen your heart for you have truly grasped the seed/reproduction generation to generation blessings that I have for those who will seek Me and know Me for who I truly am.
26. I love to answer prayer. I love to share Myself and enable and empower those to do what I wanted them to do in the first place.
27. Freedom, Ted, freedom.
28. My hand is upon Christopher. My hand is upon Amy. My hand is upon Barbi and I am not done with her yet. And My hand is upon Marci. Marci has sought Me and what I have for her remains to be imaginable by her. I have more and she will walk in it.
29. Your seed Ted. Your seed. You have sought Me so many times for your seed and asked Me to bless, keep, and protect the generations that will come from your seed, your loins, and your spirit. And I have seen them and heard them and answered your prayers. I love to answer prayer. I love to move after communion with My people on behalf of what concerns them. I love to. I love to. I love people and I want them to know Me and how much I love them.
30. Be not afraid of Me. Be not afraid of Me. I beg you. For great power will come upon you if you won’t become afraid of Me. You can have Me Ted. You can have all of Me you’re willing to come get for I am not withholding Myself from you.
31. That’s correct Ted, keep writing, I am not withholding Myself from you at any level. Seek, seek Me and you will find more. I will speak more and more and clearer and clearer and you will point people to Me. And the moment you start accepting glory for what I give you, will be the moment you don’t ever want to occur. Now hear Me and hear Me well. You have paid a cost to be sitting here writing My words as I give them to you. And there’s a cost to continue in My presence, in My Word, and in my words.
32. Pay the price Ted. Pay the price. Don’t stop short of all that I can give you and all that you can impart into the earth. No one will not know your name if I do with you all that is available to you. It’s yours. It’s up to you. I choose and you choose and you will continue to choose the rest of your life. Choose Me, choose life and always choose to impart life, the life that you know others can live—in Me—to all those who will listen.
33. Remember Ted, no flesh can glory in My presence. Those that try, stink. Let them know they stink. Tell them to get to know Me for who I am, not just what I do for them.
34. Now go, grow and let Me be Me in you. That’s what I want to do with all My people. The more I am Me in them the more freedom they have. For wherever I am, is freedom. They need to know that more. Oh so much more.
35. Be not afraid. Be not afraid of My power or what I call you into for Me and My purposes. For I will call and open unto you doors and power, grace and glory. Now go and fear Me only and I will be pleased and you will be pleased and your seed and generations to generations of your seed will be pleased.
36. Tell them they must pray. Tell them they must come and sit at My feet: In the temples, In the churches, In the hills and in the valleys, on the ocean shores and upon the mountains, In good times and in bad, wherever they are, I am. I am that I am and I am is calling them to come, come and share, eat, feast, learn and be strengthened, fed, refreshed, nourished, and freed to do exploits, to kill the lions and bears that hinder My people.
37. I lead, you lead, I convict. No condemnation, no guilt, no fear. Lead Ted. I keep giving you specific directions about your mission, your purpose to point people to Me. Stand up, lead, pray, teach. Lead, lead, lead, and lead others to lead.
38. Prayer Ted. Your ministry, your focus, is prayer and praying and teaching others to pray and love Me for who I am so I can come forth in them and fulfill and complete them and be to them who I want to be—all that I want to be in them.
39. Tell it. Tell your purpose and let Me open the doors. The message of God in business that you have taught and written about is correct but that is but a small part of the spectrum of wisdom I will give you for My people. My people need Me and I am sending you and those who receive you receive Me and what I am doing in the earth today.
40. Be not afraid of those words. I mean them. Say them. Tell them—from the housetops—on your home page and I shall exalt you for one reason and one reason only—you point people to Me and not you—you point people to Me instead of you. So you—I can use you.
41. And I will raise you up to help spawn, birth, proclaim this new generation that has Me at their center, instead of their ministry or what they want.
42. Go, grow, and grow My body, breast feeding some and providing others meat, milk and dessert. Grow them and give them tools to grow—the tools I give you. Grow. Grow. Grow My body for Me, Me Ted, not you.
43. You are My son, My friend, and I appreciate you. Thank you. Thank you for coming today. Thank you for being willing to write what I give you and share it openly before men. Openly. Let the world see what I gave you today. Get in sync with Me where you send My words to you to the world every day—or every time I speak to you. Be not afraid, ashamed or fearful.
44. I will be Me and you be you and we’ll both be happy—Happy Ted. Happy Ted. You marveled the other day when I told you to “be happy for I have provided much for you.” You’ve mulled that over and pondered it and let it affect your spirit. Now let it affect your spirit even more, much more, deeper, intensely. Let it permeate your thinking, and I will be glorified in that.
45. Thank you Ted. Thank you for growing up. For choosing to grow up in Me, for maturing, seeking maturity in Me. Teach Me and I will teach you and answer your prayer of a thousand times, “Lord, teach me and teach me to teach.” I am answering that prayer. I love to answer prayers. I love to meet My people’s needs, wants, requests.
46. Tell them to ask Me the hard questions and tell them to be patient and I will make Myself known to them. And the more they make their self known to Me the more I will make Myself known to them. And they will be glad and I will be glad. New life, beauty, splendor, majesty, I will give them and let them share their life with Me in ways they can only now imagine, ever so barely.
47. Tell them. Pray and don’t be concerned for days that I don’t speak to you like this. For think of all the days and hours you came to Me and I said nothing. I speak and I speak when I want to speak. But Ted, you know I’m real, I’m true, I’m faithful, I’m trustable and I am a rewarder of those that diligently seek Me, for I am that I am and I am says thank you. Thank you Ted. Thank you for being Me to others and letting them see My love through you.
