SOMMER FAMILY BLESSING

Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:

WORD FROM THE LORD, FAMILY, and MINISTRY.

WORD FROM THE LORD
Every day I spend time with the Lord in the morning and He speaks to my heart words that are encouraging, exhorting and sometimes rebuking.

At first, I felt not to share these words with others, but then I realized I am just one of His followers. There are many people who need a word daily from the Lord, but they do not have the time to seek Him. This is why I decided to share the words I received from time to time. The messages are in first person as the the Lord relayed them to my spirtual ears.

FAMILY
We have three sons and nine grandchildren. There is something new happening all the time in the Sommer family. I will post some of these events of interest.

MINISTRY
Tom and I have traveled the world. To find out more about our ministry you may consult our webpage -

I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

PRIVILEGE

There are many things that people consider a privilege to do.  The disciples felt it was a privilege to follow Me even though it cost them to be My disciples.  In fact, for many this privilege cost them their very lives.

You have a great privilege today to be one of My disciples.  Even though  you cannot hear My voice teach you,  My teaching and My words all benefit you.  Spending time in My presence will also give you great joy. You truly are an ambassador for Me on this Earth, and I am privileged to have you as My disciple.

I have given you another privilege while you are on Earth.  That privilege is prayer.  Praying will not cost you your life, but there is a price to pay.  I want you to pray effective, fervent prayers and sometimes this means that you will have to  lay down some of your time spent doing Earthly things.  What ever the cost for you, your prayers will pay great dividends in My kingdom.  Keep praying.

SAVOR

 I gave you the word "savor."  You looked it up in the dictionary and it means to excite interest.  It is also defined as something that acts upon the sense of smell and taste.  You will see this word in both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, but it is spelled savour.

As you read the Old Covenant, you will see how the early sacrifices that were made to My Father were a sweet smelling savour to Him.  This word is used several different ways in the New Covenant. Paul wrote to the Corinthian Church these words: "Now thanks be to God, Who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14)."

Paul expressed what I want to express to you and all My body on Earth.  My desire is that you and and all believers will be able to share their knowledge of Me with others in such a way that those who hear will hunger and thirst to not just know about Me, but to also know Me as their Lord and Savior.  My prayer is that many will be saved and finally understand that I can cause them to triumph through all life's trials.

FERVENT

My brother James wrote that effective, fervent prayer will avail much.  You are fervent in prayer when you pray with intensity and without ceasing.  There are many examples of fervent prayer in My Word.  

One of those examples was when some of my disciples were gathered in a home to pray for My servant Peter to be released from prison.  As they prayed fervently, angels came to Peter's prison and released him.  When Peter knocked on the door, those gathered could not believe that it was Peter.

You have been fervently praying for a turn around in your country that will cause the foundations of righteousness to be restored in your land.  Keep fervently praying with faith believing that it is My desire to pierce the darkness in your country with the light of My glory.

JAMES 5:16; ACTS 12

FRESH

You have been crying out for your nation to have a fresh start.  So much corruption and darkness has entered your nation, but nevertheless I can bring all darkness to light and cleanse your nation of its corruption.

Remember I would have spared Sodom and Gamora if there had only been ten righteous men in that city. There are millions of righteous people in your nation who have been crying out to Me to heal their land. 

I have heard those cries, and already there is a fresh wind blowing that will sweep away the dark clouds of deception and corruption. Keep praying.

GENESIS 18:32

WATERS

The dark waters in your nation seem to be almost at flood stage, but take heart.  When the enemy comes in like a flood, I have promised to raise up a standard.

In 1990 I gave you a prophecy. You were awakened in the night in February of 1990 when you heard with your spiritual ears that I had opened the flood gates and that there would be a flood of evil and a flood for good released in your land.

At that time I gave you the assignment to warn people that they must hide themselves in the Rock (I am that Rock) or they would be swept away by the flood of evil.  The warning was that if anyone who puts their hopes in this world's system (governments, financial institutions, education or any other worldly institution that they could be deceived.  Now is the time for My church, My believers, to anchor their hopes in Me and Me only.  When they do this, they will never be discouraged or deceived.

ISAIAH 59:19

TOGETHER/GATHER

It does not take an army to turn the world upside down.  You certainly can see what happened when My twelve disciples did turn the world right side up instead of upside down,  Persecution caused My disciples to preach the gospel in many nations.  Even India has memories of My servant Thomas who evangelized that nation.

Darkness of deception has fallen upon your land, but the light of true believers will be like a lighthouse  that will beam the light of My gospel throughout the world. I am shaping My church into that lighthouse.

Be ready to fulfill your assignment.  Those who are faithful to Me will continue to gather together to pray because My goal is to gather a huge harvest of souls into My Kingdom before I return.  Keep standing in faith and together like minded men and women of faith will be co-laborers with Me to gather in this last great harvest.  Let this phrase be your motto: "Together we will gather."

MATTHEW 23:37

DESIRE

 I know you desired for the new leader of your nation to be a person who desired to stand up for human rights, free speech and the right of the unborn to live.  This did not happen, but I do not want you to think that I did not hear your prayers.

Your desires lined up with My desires to protect the unborn and to have leaders who would believe in Me and desire to do My will.  Do not give up praying for these desires to be fulfilled.

I grant the desires of the righteous.  I am able to turn the hearts of kings like I turn the waters in the river courses.  Pray for those in leadership and lift their hearts before Me.  I have the power to change hearts which I will do as you look forward to a global revival.  With Me all things are possible
