This month we have been working on our online presence and our bookstore. It's still a work in progress as far as products go because we have to add all the info and pics manually. "give me some credit I'm a prophet not a web designer by nature"
Our ability to receive gifts is up and running though.
That had to be established first as I'm finding out.
I thinks it kind of odd we call it a bookstore but we don't sell anything really. Our ministry asks for donations and because you donate to a good cause you also receive a nice gift at the same time.
Prophecy is not among the things we place in our bookstore. Standard merchandise is allowable but we do not sell prophecy.
The word of the Lord is free but you must be mindful at all times you are still seeking God. Giving gifts would be appropriate.
Do they still happen today?
Yes they do.
We first need to hear from Him. Secondly, act on the word given.
God speaks all the time. He is always giving us words of wisdom, knowledge, prophecy etc but they are of no value if we do not receive the words.
That's what prophecy is about, giving words to people but it's your ability, your faith to receive that word which makes miracles happen.
Case in point... one of our intercessors dislocated her shoulder. She wrote me asking to pray for her. The next day God said to call her to pray for her. During our conversation a word of knowledge came and I told her, You are healed...
Long story short, she not only heard the word but received it. She was completely healed by the next morning.
Do not be a hearer of the word only but a doer.
Everyone wants to know what's ahead and quite often we fail to handle what we have now.
That's like driving a car in the rain, texting your spouse what's for dinner when you get there.
What is in your future will be there when you get there but for many people the desire to know in advance is crippling.
God is not looking for supreme multitasking saints but He looks at His children who are so preoccupied with what they're going to get they miss out on what they have. Or we wind up mishandling what we have... therefore jeopardize our future. Prophecy is not a toy. Prophecy is not a game or a competition but born out of a relationship with Father God.
Do I see the future, yes many times I do. I also see the present and the past. It is the process of dealing with them all that makes prophecy so astounding. No amount of prophetic words can fix or make up for a life not taken care of. God will continually do His part, we must do ours.
A Lesson Learned...
Can you believe it's been sixty days since we celebrated New Years?
I would like to say the Lord has been doing good things... except the word "has" refers to a past tense. The truth is, the Lord is doing great things with us and through us, present tense. Let me share one example how the Lord corrected me just recently...
Holy Spirit asked me, Tom,why do you avoid using this word great?
After a few moments I replied, Lord it's such a strong word.
I often feel great but when people ask how I'm doing I fumble to use lesser words, fearing that my being or doing great will slap their not so great in the face.
So many people aren’t doing great, I understand this.
Lord, I also understand being or doing great is a mindset. We never achieve greatness if we never say and taste the word upon our lips.
Lord, I guess I have been become double minded in this area without intending to be. In not wanting to offend people I have offended you, the liberty and the grace you've placed upon my life at this time. We are doing great today the sixtieth day of 2014.
Life is not good, it's great.
Prophet Tom Hayden, USA and Apostle Alan Pateman, Italy are working on a divine connection that the Lord has established.
It is true, If we are obedient to the Lord He gives us opportunity to exercise our gift. This will open doors for the one who gives it and bring him into the presence of great people.
I look upon Dr. Alan & Jenny Pateman as great people. They are ministers of the gospel and have become friends through the process of time.
In days to come we will be making an announcement of an alliance which we feel is God given and God designed.
In 2014 God is connecting for excellence. He is creating opportunities for those who wish to advance the kingdom of God throughout the earth.
Keep an eye out for future updates.

Over these last sixty days the Lord has blessed us with four brand new personal intercessors. They are perfectly suited for the task at hand, I did not say they were perfect.
If we waited for people to become perfectly capable, perfectly educated then none of us would ever do anything for God or other people. God is not looking for us to be perfect to qualify just obedient. We live in a day and age where far too many people have perfected the art of saying yes with their lips but their hearts are far away from actually being obedient. There is a difference between those who say they can and those who do. The four brave souls who thought they heard the Lord contacted us and we spoke about what being a prayer intercessor for us entails.
You may read about our intercessors here
If you hear the Lord whispering to your heart about having a more intimate role in our ministry in 2014 as an intercessor/prayer partner please contact us.
Please do not think you do not qualify. We will educate you into being the best prayer person you can be.
Each of our prayer people know each other, pray for each other and Prophet Tom.
Plus Tom is intricately praying for, teaching and educating each of you who want to mature in this incredible area which blesses Gods heart.
