Greetings friends,

We at WhiteDove Ministries trust that God’s grace is being abundantly distributed in your lives. We are at a crucial cross road in this generation’s mandate to bring a harvest of souls into the Kingdom and reveal the Lord’s nature and character on earth. The last three months of 2007 will be quite strategic in placing us before Heaven to be most fruitful in the coming year.

These three months will especially be a time for cleansing and purification so that every weighty encumbrance is removed. The Lord is continuing to articulate His desire to recapture lost mantels and commissions to be mingled with the fresh and unprecedented never before seen.

For the last several months we have been emphasizing in our meetings the tremendous champions of past years who were used most notably in evangelism and the miraculous. The Lord spoke to me recently and said, “You can get much further with Me by honoring than dishonoring.” I knew this related to some of the most dishonored leaders of the past who have been misunderstood and even targeted for malicious slander is order to discredit the message of healing and deliverance.

Likewise, that is not to say that we turn a blind eye to strongholds and snares that existed that we must learn to alleviate in our generation. According to Hebrews 13:7, we are to scrutinize, contemplate, and understand the lives of those who presented God’s Word to us and then imitate their faith; because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If we come to Him on the same conditions of faith, then He will do through us what he did through them and much more.

This issue of our newsletter will also include part one of this year’s Shepherd’s Rod. Much of its content includes strategy and preparation to flourish in the days ahead. From what we are seeing prophetically, this will be a season of completion and new beginnings simultaneously. Much of the preparatory work and refining will be brought to a measure of completion while fresh outpourings of God’s Spirit are poised for release.

We certainly hope that many of you who follow our ministry will be able to attend the conferences that we are co-hosting in the coming months. We feel each will be a stair step progression into times of impartation and commissioning.

Blessings of breakthrough

Paul Keith & Wanda Davis and the WhiteDove Team

Cleanse the Land
By Wanda Davis

On February 25, 2007 I was in the midst of a dream when an audible voice spoke in it saying, “There will be a hurricane on Rosh Hashanah and the purpose will be to cleanse the land.”

I immediately recognized the Voice as one that has often spoken to me and always proven to be accurate. Although, I knew this was the Holy Spirit’s voice, I was somewhat puzzled as the cleansing of our land was not something I had understanding about nor was I presently reviewing the subject. Even so, I knew it was important to Him. We shared the revelation with our team and several ministry friends.

It is now a matter of historical record that on Rosh Hashanah, September 13, 2007, hurricane Humberto came ashore fulfilling the prediction. However, there are several very interesting characteristics of this hurricane that have prophetic significance for this mandate to sanctify and purify our land.

No storm in recorded history has progressed as rapidly from a small depression into a hurricane. Wikipedia reported that:

“Hurricane Humberto formed and intensified faster than any other tropical cyclone on record within 18 hours of landfall; developing on September 12, 2007 in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, the cyclone rapidly strengthened and struck High Island Texas with winds of over 85 mph early on September 13. It steadily weakened after moving ashore, and on September 14 it began dissipating over northwestern Georgia as it interacted with an approaching cold front. Humberto was the eighth named storm and third hurricane of the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season, and became the first hurricane to strike the United States since Hurricane Wilma of 2005. Damage was expected to total out to less than $500 million in damage.”

A “suddenly” of God stands before us. Only by walking out the coming days will we fully understand the full implications of God’s desire to “cleanse our land!” Clearly, He intends to do something tremendous in our nation as it relates to a harvest of souls and the manifestation of His Kingdom on earth. Isaiah prophesied about a national revival among saying:

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool
— Isaiah 1:16-18

In the Tabernacle of Moses the priests were required to sanctify themselves before entering the Lord’s Presence. That is also our mandate; Paul admonished us saying:

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
— 2 Cornithians 7:1

There are incredible and weighty promises that have been given to us individually and corporately. In Spanish the name “Humberto” means “bright or bright support” while in German it means “famous giant.”

God intends to use His people to be a bright shining light in the midst of this dark generation. Throughout this land, people are perishing in eternal separation from God and suffering tremendous illnesses and oppressions. We are to be the Lord’s remedy and carriers of His anointing of power to heal and deliver. There is a cleansing taking place to prepare us for this responsibility.
