Testimony of the Creation of Arrows International

After being married for 23 years with eight children, owning a home, business, and running a ministry… within a two year time frame our family went through some major shaking, and after it all I lost my wife in a tragic car accident.  After a time of grieving and seeking God for direction, God began to reveal His master plan.   Through a dream He led us to Oklahoma, He also said He would restore everything that was lost, a new home, school for the kids, business, ministry, and even a wife to help me.   

"I'm drawing a line..."

Approximately 5 months after my wife died I went to a men’s conference, on my flight there God began to give me the vision of Arrows International.  He said “I’m drawing a line (So I drew a line vertically); it’s time to cross over and commit your ways to me, fully step across, step into me.  No more one foot in and one foot out.  No more balancing on the fence. No more double takes or second guessing.” You see the double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:8

"surrender all and cross over..."

As He was showing me these things He said “now here you are on the left side of this line, surrender all and cross over. Draw a line horizontal from left to right with an arrow on the right side directing you across."  The scripture that came to me after that was Matthew 16:24 & 25. Then Christ said to His disciples “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.  Now that you’ve denied yourself surrender all and cross over, I will begin to sharpen you through my word. Joshua 1:8 “Do not let the book of the law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.  Then you will be prosperous and successful.”  Ephesians 6:17 “The sword of the spirit which is the word of God.”  Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” For the first time looking at the picture I began to see the revelation.  I am like an arrow in the hands of God.  The shaft of the arrow is being crafted and balanced by the Potters hands and the arrowhead is the sharpening of His word in my life by His spirit.

 

“when you do all these things and wait on Me and serve Me, I will give you wings to fly”

In this place the Lord creates in us the true worshipper.  John 4:23 & 24 “Yet a time is coming and now has come when the true worshipper will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.  God is spirit and His worshipper must worship in spirit and truth, mixing the truth of His word with the spirit of the Live God in us.”  Then I heard, “when you do all these things and wait on Me and serve Me, I will give you wings to fly” and the scripture Isaiah 40:31 came to me…But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint.  He said put the eagle wings in this picture.

 

"Now you’re becoming a mature man of God"

And they became the feather in the arrow.  Something that will help guide the arrow.  Now you’re becoming a mature man of God.  Ephesians 4:13 - 14 came to me “Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ; then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men and their deceitful scheming.”  

 

The rainbow represents the promise

When this maturity takes place in our lives we will fly above the storm and we will cut through the winds of evil doctrine. Never to be shaken, never to be thrown off course.  Then the Lord showed me the rainbow. The rainbow represents the promise not to flood the earth.  But when I see the rainbow, I’m also reminded of all His promises for my life.

 

The promises of God are yes and amen

2 Corinthians 1:20 came to me.  The promises of God are yes and amen-that’s how most people will speak that verse.  But I like the Old King James version, (all the promises of God in Him are yes and in Him Amen, unto the Glory of God by us.  Being in Christ requires steps of obedience.  Then He said put the rainbow on this picture...it became the bow in the hand of God.  His promises for my life.

 

the power of His amazing grace and love to reap a harvest of lost souls

Psalms 127:4 - As arrows are in the hand of the mighty man; so are children of the youth. I believe we are like arrows in the quiver of God.  Then He said put on a full rainbow on this picture. Now you are ready to be released by the hands of God with the promises of God in the fullness of His power, authority, and favor. Full and overflowing with His anointing you will soar with great accuracy, slicing through darkness to hit the mark He has called you to hit.  Not to the right or left but dead center. You will destroy the arrows of the enemy, splitting them into pieces to subdue the earth and advance His kingdom.  To bring forth the heaviness of a greater glory, and the power of His amazing grace and love to reap a harvest of lost souls.
