And I pul a jeveI on lhy forehead, and earrings in lhine

And he said unlo ne, Son of nan, can lhese bones Iive`

And lhe slreels of lhe cily shaII be fuII of boys and girIs

Zecharlah 14:1-21:

And I sav a nev heaven and a nev earlh: for lhe firsl

And I }ohn sav lhe hoIy cily, nev }LRISALLM, coning

And I heard a greal voice oul of heaven saying, BehoId,

And Cod shaII vipe avay aII lears fron lheir eyes, and

And he lhal sal upon lhe lhrone said, BehoId, I naIe aII

And he said unlo ne, Il is done. I an AIpha and Ònega,

Bul lhe fearfuI, and unbeIieving, and aboninabIe, and

And lhere cane unlo ne one of lhe seven angeIs vhich

And he carried ne avay in lhe spiril lo a greal and high

LLM, descending oul of heaven fron Cod,
Iaving lhe gIory of Cod: and her Iighl vas IiIe unlo a

And had a vaII greal and high, and had lveIve gales, and

Òn lhe easl lhree gales, on lhe norlh lhree gales, on lhe

And lhe vaII of lhe cily had lveIve foundalions, and in

And he lhal laIIed vilh ne had a goIden reed lo neas-

And lhe cily Iielh foursquare, and lhe Ienglh is as Iarge

And he neasured lhe vaII lhereof, an hundred and forly

And lhe buiIding of lhe vaII of il vas of jasper: and lhe

And lhe foundalions of lhe vaII of lhe cily vere gar-

And lhe lveIve gales vere lveIve pearIs: every severaI

And I sav no lenpIe lherein: for lhe Lord Cod AInighly

And lhe cily had no need of lhe sun, neilher of lhe noon,

And lhe nalions of lhen vhich are saved shaII vaII in

And lhe gales of il shaII nol be shul al aII by day: for

And lhey shaII bring lhe gIory and honour of lhe nalions

And lhere shaII in no vise enler inlo il any lhing lhal

-287-
And he sheved ne a pure river of valer of Iife, cIear as

In lhe nidsl of lhe slreel of il, and on eilher side of lhe

And lhere shaII be no nore curse: bul lhe lhrone of Cod

And lhey shaII see his face, and his nane shaII be in lheir

And lhere shaII be no nighl lhere, and lhey need no can-

God of Miracles
Eighty Years of the Miraculous
by Edith Ward Heflin
“My life has been very exciting because I was always looking
forward to the next miracle, the next answer to prayer, the
next thing Jesus would do for me. I expect I have lived twenty
lifetimes within these eighty years. The God of all miracles
has been so good and so very gracious to me.”– Edith Heflin
As you become witness to a life that has spanned the
period from Azuza Street to this next great revival, the life of
a unique woman who has known the great ministries of our
century and has herself lived the life of the miraculous, you
too will encounter the God of Miracles.

Hear the Voice of God
by
Wallace H. Heflin, Jr.
* Does God still speak to His people as He did to the proph-
ets of old?
* If so, how does He speak?
* Can we actually hear His voice?
* What can we do to become more sensitive to God’s voice?
Wallace Heflin Jr. spent a lifetime hearing the voice of God and
following God’s directives in dynamic ministry to the people of this
nation and the world. In this manuscript, the last one that he pre-
pared before his death in December of 1996, he challenges us that
not only is it possible to hear the voice of God, but that God actu-
ally extends to every one of us an invitation to commune with Him.

The Power of Prophecy
by
Wallace H. Heflin, Jr.
“Of all the nine gifts of the Spirit, prophecy is the gift that God is using
most to bring in the revival of the end-time. Because of that, it is prophecy
that is being opposed now more than any other gift. I want to declare that it
is time to take the limits off the gift of prophecy and off the prophets God
has raised up for this hour. It is time to move into God’s plan of action to
declare His will prophetically to this, the final generation.”
– Rev. Wallace Heflin, Jr.
• What is prophecy?
• What does it accomplish?
• Who can prophesy?
• How can YOU get started prophesying?
These and many other important questions are answered in this unique
and timely volume.

The BESTSELLING:
GLORY
by
Ruth Ward Heflin
What is Glory?
• It is the realm of eternity.
• It is the revelation of the presence of God.
• He is the glory! As air is the atmosphere of the Earth, so glory
is the atmosphere of Heaven.
Praise ... until the spirit of worship comes. Worship ... until the glory
comes. Then ... stand in the glory. If you can capture the basic principles
of praise, worship and glory which are outlined in this book – so simple
that we often miss them – you can have anything else you want in God.

The BESTSELLING:
REVIVAL GLORY
by
Ruth Ward Heflin
What is Revival Glory?
• It is standing in the cloud and ministering directly from the
cloud unto the people.
• It is seeing in to the eternal realm and declaring what you are
seeing.
• It is gathering in the harvest, using only the tools of the Spirit.
• It is, ultimately, the revelation of Jesus Christ.
One cannot have revival without the glory or the glory without having
revival.

The BESTSELLING:
RIVER GLORY
by
Ruth Ward Heflin
What is River Glory?
Through the analogy of the river, God has given us a whole new
conciousness of His Spirit. Because He wants us to know the Spirit,
He is showing us the river. When we see the Spirit of God as a great
flowing river, we can better understand how to step into it and how
to flow with its currents. The river is the Holy Spirit and the flow of
the river is the outpouring of the Spirit. Whatever brings us to the
river, if we can all get into it, every need will be supplied.
