Emergency Strike Forces


Arthur is out in the field at this time and so his communication is limited. However, the need has arisen for three strike forces and so I (Megan) am writing on his behalf.

We have been talking about what the Sapphire Tribe can do.  This is an opportunity for us to step up to a new level to accomplish God’s will in the Kingdom.

These strike forces are for specific purposes, so the profile of the people we are looking for is also targeted. Please read carefully the descriptions below.

If it is the right fit for you and you have the freedom to join, write to Serina@TheSLG.com and specify to which strike force you are responding.  She will communicate with you from that point forward.

Strike Force #1 – TIME SENSITIVE
We need five people to pray for healing for a three month old baby who has been diagnosed with an incurable disease. We are looking for people who have personally experienced the supernatural healing of a baby. Please respond no later than 9:00 AM Pacific Time.

Strike Force #2
We need ten people who move in dreams and visions. This is a 90 day assignment.

Strike Force #3
We need six people who have a calling for defiant faith. You have endured a long season of deep pain and have remained standing. This will be a lengthy strike force. We would like to have coverage around the world, so we are looking for two people from Europe or Africa, two from the States, and two from Australia.

We are moving intentionally into the new flavor of the Mercy Season, looking for the alignment and the synergy to flow. This is the time to go to the next level as a tribe and bring our collective authority and power to serve the King.

Onward and Forward!

2. Warfare: The Human Heart


We have a decision on the format.  We will continue with announcing the Worship and Warfare in this blog, well ahead of time.  There will be no electronic interface.  Each person will pray when and where they are, as the Lord leads.

We will be united in spirit, around the world, joining our authority, but there will be no mechanical connection or recording.

Our new target is the human heart.  We are commanded to love the Lord our God with all our heart.  The scar tissue of generations has given us hard hearts.  We will be cleansing trauma bonds to time and land, excommunication, jealousy, dealing with AHS in and around the heart, removing ungodly structures from the blood vessels leading in and out and everything else the Lord brings to our focus.

Tuesday, February 7th, 8:00 a.m. Pacific time.

Change of Strategy for War


I am pondering the mother/daughter warfare from yesterday.  I am still getting emails reporting a broad cross section of “stuff.”  It is too soon to make any claims of significant impact, but there certainly was an overt effort by the enemy to disrupt, and there was a LOT of connection between the Holy Spirit and your spirit, and from you to each other and to me.

Technology and communication in the natural didn’t work so well, but that is common with our tribe.  By the time we have run things two or three times, people get the hang of a new methodology and the administrative cost goes down.  We can then do what we came to do without the glitchy stuff.

And, as we go forward, we will grow in corporate authority.

On the table today is a discussion of mechanics.  Here are three different configurations.

First:  The blog is central.

We go forward with the current package.  I announce a topic, date and time in the blog a week in advance.  I war in private from the office.  You war from there without any electronic interface.

Two points on the upside:  we have the highest participation; I have the lowest administrative/technical cost.  A blog I can do!

The downside is rather large.  I may not be at my best when something is scheduled in advance.  When you schedule anything ahead of time — like a routine Sunday sermon or Thursday Bible study or seminar on a given date — you are guaranteed to have some days when the people show up but it isn’t God’s best time.

I so know what it is to have a message burn hot within me on the 12th, but when I deliver it on the 23rd, it is a pale relative of the flaming fire from before.  Yesterday was a variation on that theme.  You were all out there, primed and ready to go, some getting up at 2:00 a.m.  I was a mess.

We went forward anyway.  God honored the tenacity.  Lives were changed.

But what if I was at white hot passion when we did it?  Wouldn’t it be so much better?

That leads to option two.

Second:  Unscheduled calls, announced by Twitter

I have a Twitter account that I use very sparingly for serious stuff.  The address is @SLGArthur.  What if I used that to announce to the tribe that I was going to war in 15 minutes?

The positive is that I would have the best of me at the table.  The negative is that a lot of our tribe can’t roll on 15 minutes notice, so we would lose a lot of agreement.

Another negative is that a lot of people don’t use Twitter, and I hate to make anyone embrace any new platform in social media.  There is negligible risk since you can sign up to follow just one person and you won’t get spammed by presidents and movie actors, but still . . .

Third:  Scheduled calls with video on Facebook

These events could be either scheduled long in advance on the blog and Facebook, or be a fast response to a big burn announced on Twitter.

My team assures me that with “only two clicks” and no wires, plugs, dials, batteries or settings, I can sit in front of my trusty little laptop and broadcast to the world a video of the warfare that I do.  If I understand correctly, it can be done for free, and the video can be archived for future access by the people whose time zones preclude their participating live.

The major downside is that I am my most authentic and most dangerous when I do my rants in private.  Broadcasting to a whole world of Noble Subjects, Not-So-Noble Boo Birds and highly intentional witches causes me to edit myself on occasion.

The offsetting upside is that many of you can engage more deeply when you have a visual, so perhaps the higher engagement from the field would offset the curbing of my fire.

Another negative is that a lot of our tribe shares my loathing for Facebook and would not feel comfortable doing warfare on that platform.  I highly respect that and would never want to be the cause of a single person opening a Facebook account.

So those are my thoughts.  No perfect fit.  A lot of trade-offs.  Any of them is possible.

What are your thoughts?

And before you comment, may I suggest you shift gears out of consumer mode?  A comment that starts out, “What I want is . . .” might just go straight to the trash depending on my mood when I am approving the comments.  Right this minute, I am not feeling very tolerant of self-absorption.  Can you tell?

So let’s have an adult conversation about how to advance the Kingdom of God, knowing that whichever approach we take, someone will be inconvenienced.  Maybe you.  How can we set the most people free, and equip the most people to war on their own in the future, at the lowest spiritual and emotional cost for all?

(This is your tightly focused businessman speaking).

Report on Warfare #1 for Mother/Daughter Conflict


Our first attempt at this new project is in the books.  The plan was for the team in the office to do warfare and for the Tribe around the world to support us in prayer, without having any direct electronic connection.

We prayed for every single woman in the tribe. They may or may not have a daughter and they may or may not have conflict, but every one of them had or has a mother.

My observations are as follows:

-Our tribe is pretty lame at following directions.  So many people wrote and called wanting to know where the connection was for the live stream.  Sigh.  We explained in detail in a blog ahead of time and it was an exercise in futility for many.  For those of you who read and followed instructions and joined us in spirit, THANK YOU.  You are a balm to my soul.

-It was so important for there to be support from the Body.  I have been in very rough shape since a ministry I did a few days ago went weird and I got badly hurt.  Still trying to dig out from that.  What I brought to the table was my will, but I was really not well yesterday.  I am grateful that the well being of the Tribe does not depend on me.   Bringing our combined authority to the table matters a lot.  Your agreement yesterday put a hurt on the enemy.

-The enemy ran a lot of interference.  Several people have written of having put all kinds of reminders in place, and they did not work.  The most dedicated, well meaning individuals were effectively distracted at the hour and failed to consciously participate.

-God moved anyway.  Even though individuals were not engaged with the call on the soul level, several reported either a sudden awareness of healing or a sudden awareness of demonic manifestations during that time.  So God made the devil look foolish.

-We have lots of reports of manifestations and emotional warm fuzzies.  That is good.  It indicates that we achieved something, somewhere.  BUT, our metric is “measurable, verifiable, sustained change” which means the reconciliation of mothers and daughters in a substantial way.  That will take some time as all the soul stuff still needs to be overcome, BUT now it can happen since the critters are out of the way.  Time to press in with some face to face engagement to take back the lost ground.

So, as messy as it was, we put a scratch or two on the enemy with our first attempt.  We can do better.  I will be releasing a blog later today with our next strategy and date.

Hopefully someone will actually read it.

1. Warfare: Mother/Daughter Conflict


There is a lot of friction between mothers and daughters that is due to poor circumstances or poor social skills.

That said, there is another group of people where one or the other has really solid social skills, deep connection with the Lord and His principles, but no matter what, they can’t get resolution to the conflict.

Our experience is that there is usually a pair of critters in one or the other that is sabotaging the relationship.  Almost always, it is Leviathan in the cerebellum.  Then there is a demon or an AHS in the parietal lobe.  The combination of these two will block all the soul and spirit work that either or both do.

On Monday, January 23rd at 8:00 a.m. Pacific time, I will be doing deliverance prayer for all the women in the SLG tribe and their extended family, seeking to free them from those critters so they have a reasonable chance to rebuild a relationship.

I invite you to join me with your authority and passion at that time.

How Much Can the Tribe Do?


The Sapphire Tribe has been transitioning from individuals with a common focus to a community with significant collective, focused engagement.

The first major milestone was the first live stream we had.  For the first time, I felt the emotional connection with the Tribe globally for hours before the stream.  It was mostly a feeling of giddy excitement colored with some nervousness.  There was a new bright sparkly toy on the shelf and people were looking forward to playing with it.

As we got into the presentation, the engagement shifted away from the medium onto the message and you tracked closely with your spirit through the spiritual ebb and flow of the ideas.  Communion was very special that night.

Last week, when we had our quarterly week of Worship and Warfare around the theme of Defiance, you engaged with me in a new way, joining your authority with mine, intensely. It made a big difference to have a global agreement as we were doing global deliverance.

The results have been dramatic. Lots of people experienced significant freedom on the spot.  But what was really exciting is that we extended the deliverance to everyone in the Tribe, whether they were there or not.  And we have reports of people who experienced the deliverance when we were doing it, but didn’t listen to the archived teaching until days later.  Clearly God honored our petition.

AND we include our extended families in the warfare.  Here too we are getting reports of transformation in those who have no particular interest in Sapphire, but are related to those who do track with us.

On Wednesday, I was celebrating what God was doing and proposed that we test the waters and see what was available to us.  I referenced some Noble Subjects on the coast of New Zealand who did not have good enough Internet reception to watch the live stream. We asked God politely if He would be interested in connecting a lot of people who are in rural areas or with old infrastructure.

And He did.  Fantastic stories of technological impossibilities came back, as God honored our request.

So clearly, we bring something to the table with our collective authority.  We have no idea what the limits of our authority is, so we must test them by reaching for more freedom.

Here is the current plan.  Most mornings, I meet with one or more of our intercessors for a time of warfare.  We are going to start including the Tribe some days in specific deliverance prayers.

We began today.

We warred against the Moabite curse which is expressed by leaders exploiting their followers instead of building a platform under them.  We cried out for perspective to those who thought they had to endure it, and for freedom from demonic and human bondage.

It will be interesting to see what kind of measurable, verifiable, sustained change that prayer had with just three people against the critters in the whole Tribe!

Going forward, I invite you to join us.  We are not going to broadcast, but one or two days a week, I will send out a two paragraph blog, announcing what the topic will be for the following day.  Our prayer times are at 8:00 a.m.  I would love to have you join us in bringing your authority to bear on the deliverance effort for the whole Tribe.

This is very new territory for me.  It is so much more natural to work one on one where I can see the individual and tailor my presentation to the situation.

But, if God is making grace available for a larger, group deliverance, let’s do it.  I do absolutely believe that it will make a world of difference if you are agreeing with me from around the world.  This is a Tribe, not one person.   We got results last week, because it was a shared investment of all our earned authority, focusing on an issue around the world.

For now, if anyone felt a release from the prayers about the Moabite on Friday the 20th, I would love to hear.

Meanwhile, figure out what time it is in your neighborhood when it is 8:00 a.m. in California and watch for the next blog that announces a theme.  lac08-noble-subject-blog

When You Feel Disconnected


Take the test.

-Have you ever been in a crowd of familiar people but felt utterly disconnected from that community?

-Have you ever had a profound experience with God, but when you looked back on it months later, it was just data lying flat and there was not a particle of a sense of connection to it?

-Have you ever felt disconnected from yourself?

These are just a few faces of disconnect caused by Death.  Death is an entity, a spiritual power (See Revelation 6:8).  This is distinct from the event where our body stops living.

The Spirit of Death creates a pseudo time line for us which causes us to feel disconnected from everything God designed us to be connected to.

This audio clip is an extended warfare prayer you can use to separate yourself and our tribe from this false time line so we are only on the time line God designed for us before the foundation of the world.

When we are on God’s time line, we can embrace a sense of destiny.  When Death and Sheol are able to intrude a virus into our spirit, we feel disconnected at best, and struggle with futility at worst.   noble-subject-blog-unleash-power-of-your-story
