Did you know that there are an estimated 250,000 words in the English language? People who study languages also estimate that there are between 6,000 and 7,000 languages throughout the world. Wow! What a vast supply of reference to choose from when preparing to write something someone else will read.

It happens every week in pulpits all over the world! The vast supply of “words” are dipped into by, as a great mentor of mine calls them, “Pulpiteers,” only too often just to deliver nothing more than confusion, rather than clarity. Don’t misunderstand. I am not suggesting every word that comes from every pulpit is untrustworthy. There are definitely voices coming from pulpits that are to be trusted! There are also a vast number that are too often given a “free reign” to say anything they want and then expect those that listen to them to trust them explicitly when they themselves have no clue of what they truly are saying. To think of all the notorious verbiage about God and His Kingdom that has been delivered on a weekly basis, and even in His name — when He has nothing at all to do with what is being said, is mind-blowing to me.

Why? Let me explain!

Think again of all the words that are at our disposal to choose from anytime we desire! Have you ever wondered of their origin? I am glad you asked! If you know your scripture well enough you already know the answer. At a point in history there was, what I call, a “reset” of the languages of the world. That point was at a place called Babel.

Those of you who know me know how I love to dig into the definitions and origins of words. Do you know what the name Babel means? It means, “Confusion.” You most likely remember the story of the Tower of Babel. Men, wanting to build a tower to reach Heaven and make a name for themselves.

Now, check this out… the word “tower,” from its origins, means “rostrum” or “pulpit!” Get the picture? Babel=confusion. Tower=rostrum=pulpit.

Most people consider the story of the Tower of Babel to be all about the confusion of the languages and to be the origin of most of the languages that exists today.

A great and dear friend and spiritual brother of mine recently penned some words on this subject I believe are worthy of your consideration:

“We tend to relate the story of Babylon to the confusion of earthly languages from one to thousands from English to Mandarin. However, Babylon is consistently associated in scripture from Genesis to Revelation with the many denominational versions of what the Bible says.

“Let’s break it down: de-nomi-nation. ”De” means to reduce or pull away. “Nomi” means to name something. “Nation” is a community of people sharing a common language and culture.

“I am regularly convicted by what Jesus said to the religious practitioners of His day when He said, “You’re hopeless, you religion scholars! You took the key of knowledge, but instead of unlocking doors, you locked them. You won’t go in yourself, and won’t let anyone else in either” (Luke 11: 52 MSG).

“Do I, like the Pharisees, study the scriptures to prove what I already believe? Am I looking for principles that conform to my views or am I looking for the Person who can transform my subliminal subjectivity?

“Even the silver-tongued apostle Paul was bereft of adjectives to describe what he saw in his third heaven encounter. (2 Corinthians 12: 1-4) Language languishes under the burden of attempting to expound on His attributes.

“Consult the richest thesaurus and it is still just Babylonian gibberish. Indescribable, indefinable, unutterable, incommunicable, all fall woefully short. The very best you can do is say, “God Is Love.”

“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I am nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything as plain as day, and if have faith that says to a mountain ‘Jump’, and it jumps, but don’t have love, I’m nothing… No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I am bankrupt without love” (1 Cor. 13 MSG).

Worley, Randall (2015-06-30). Brush Strokes of Grace: Finding Grace In A Graceless World.”

My point? It seems that even the story of the Tower of Babel is not just a source of languages, but more so a source of confusion. I agree with my brother Randall. There is nothing we can say that will truly justify who He truly is. Take not just our own encounters and experiences, but all the collective moments of the human race in the past combined together of when anyone had any type of encounter with Almighty God; there are no words in any language that can offer true justification of who He is! It is true – the best we could possibly do is just say, “God is Love!”

I am also reminded of the words of a Sandy Patty (I believe) song, “Love in Any Language,” that says:

“Love in any language, straight from the heart

Pulls us all together, never apart

And once we learn to speak it, all the world will hear

Love in any language, fluently spoken here”

That could only work for one reason – LOVE! After all, it is who He is!

We, as members of High Impact Church, recently hosted a special dinner event to show our love and appreciation for our amazing Leadership Ministry Team.

They are wholeheartedly committed to God and to each of us. We’re so grateful for the love and dedication of our founding Senior Pastors, Larry and Brenda Bizette, along with our Co-Pastors Jessie and Minnie Fair, and Co-Pastors Tim and Sandra Grant.

These 3 couples display giving and unselfish attitudes. They are always eager to pour of themselves into each of us. They never seem to tire of using their callings, giftings, anointings, and talents to help us mature and grow in our relationships with God.

The theme for our celebration was taken from Ecclesiastes 4:12 “And one standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer; three is even better, for a three-fold cord is not easily broken.”

It is a privilege and honor to serve alongside with this “3-fold cord” in fulfilling God’s Kingdom purposes.

Numbers have very important meanings in the Bible. I would like to share some thoughts about the significance of the number 3.

  1. In reference to our theme, the 3-fold cord, I did some research regarding the design of ropes/cords.

A single stranded rope is not able to bear or support very much weight. It can unravel and come apart easily. It does a poor job of distributing weight to its fibers and therefore is not good to use for heavy loads or a tough work load.

A double stranded rope is better than a single stranded one but still lacks the stability and strength needed for heavy loads or heavy weight bearing.

However, a 3-fold strand of rope is very hard to break. There is a multiplication and increase that takes place with each added strand. Therefore, it’s potential for strength is greater. It is more stable and it won’t unravel easily. Greater loads and weights are able to be carried or handled because of the unity of its woven strands. This provides a sense of security and protection when using it for any type of work.

The attributes of this 3-fold cord, strength, stability, power, security, protection, and unity are what we see in our “3-fold” Leadership Ministry Team.

  1. The number 3 is the number that represents completeness, wholeness and fullness. We see this in the divinity of the Godhead with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When God created mankind, we were made complete and whole with a spirit, a soul, and a body.

God has graced us wholly, fully, and completely with all we need at this time with the 3 couples He has chosen to be our leaders.

  1. The Bench of 3- The Jewish synagogues were structured with what was known as the Bench of 3 (symbolic of Father, Son and Holy Spirit). This group consisted of 3 Rabbis who were righteous men of a good reputation and who were well versed in the Torah (the scriptures).

They led the people and they made judgments according to the Torah and their study of God’s word.

There was also a Bench of 7 (symbolic of the 7 Spirits of God) who ministered and carried out the directions of the judgments made by the Bench of 3. This was part of the foundation of their government in the local synagogue.

Likewise, we at High Impact Church, have been given a governmental call and anointing from God. We have a “Bench of 3” who release revelations and directions given them from the Spirit of God so that we may fulfill our calls and mandates as individuals and as a corporate entity.

  1. In the Hebrew language, each letter has a symbol and a number attached to it. The Hebrew number 3 is represented by the letter Gimal. It is from the root word Gamal which means to “give out, to nourish until completely ripe, to do good, or to benefit.” This is an appropriate description of what our leaders do.

It also means “to carry or lift up” and so in the Hebrew, it represents the word camel.

Camels are unique creatures:

  • They are beasts of burden and are able to carry very heavy loads
  • They are service animals and were used to transport people from one location to another
  • They thrive and survive in harsh circumstances and terrain
  • They are able to travel long distances
  • They carry an internal supply of water and nourishment
  • They were used in the trade routes to deliver goods, supplies, and provisions
  • Their milk is rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins
  • Their meat can be eaten and a single camel can feed a substantial number of families (we have 6!)

The above characteristics certainly apply to the “3-fold” set of Pastors at HIC.

I would like to share a section of a word from Chuck Pierce’s Glory of Zion recent newsletter. I felt it was very significant for us at HIC since it mentions the 3-fold cord.

Embrace your turning point.  Over this past season you’ve been sifted and you’ve been strained, and you have even fought for your very breath. But this is a day of change! This is a day of rearranging!  This is a time that I AM is sending a three-fold cord of empowerment into your soul that cannot be broken. For many of your nerves were strained and broken over the last seven years.  Many covenants that you thought would last are now lying by the wayside. I am now sending a three-fold cord to reform, and to restore, and to rebuild.  I am causing My restoration of your future to begin to rise.  Step into the well and the water that is now stirring and moving.  Watch Me begin to wash away what strained you.  Watch Me cause you to shine.  Watch Me give you new territory for this season. (I highlighted and underscored certain words)

In conclusion, I want to say Thank You, Lord for giving us at High Impact Church such quality men and women in our leadership to empower us so that we can continue moving forward reforming, restoring, and rebuilding according to Your mandate.

Blessings to All,

Denette Baudry

Summer is now over and we give a shout of victory for the battles fought and won. We look forward to Autumn and a new season to advance the Kingdom. Then it happens, things we thought were behind, once again rear it’s head. What do we do? We know that we’ve faced this before and defeated it, so we realize that it’s just a distraction to keep us in that old place of going nowhere fast. Obstacles and opposition will be with us but we must use it as an opportunity to get to the next phase of our destiny. We have the opportunity to trust that God will take us deeper. The opposition will be just as intense and even more so than before but the reward will also be greater than the last. We well know the plans of our enemy, so instead of waiting to see what he’s going to do, let’s take the battle to him and put him on the run. Now is the time to be on the offensive and push the enemy out of our territory. We’ve been given victory in every single battle but we must seize the opportunity to move forward into our destiny. One thing that we must do is remember to submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee. Let’s take all that’s ours and stop allowing the enemy to have it.

“So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.”

James 4:7 AMP

“Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.”

James 1:3 AMP

By Pastor Brenda Bizette 

“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a “new thing,” now it shall spring forth. Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field will honor me, The jackals and the ostriches because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen. This people I have formed for Myself; and they shall declare My praise.”

No matter who you speak to today, everyone seems to be waiting on the Lord as they are seeking Him with all their hearts as to what He wants them to do next concerning His will for their personal lives, their families, and ministries. It seems nothing works of the old way we used to do things. We are all feeling God is bringing us into a fresh new season and none of us have gone this way before. As we look at these Old Testament scriptures in Isaiah 43:18-21, we see this has happened before, so God put these words here to help guide us along this unfamiliar path. The thing about the Lord is, nothing is new to Him, but when He begins to reveal Himself to us for a new season, it’s new to us but not to Him. We are the ones that have to discern and know by the Holy Spirit when this unveiling of new things are about to occur. If we are tuned in to hearing His voice he tells us in this passage, Shall you not know it? So that tells me, it is our responsibility to have ears to listen to hear what He is saying to us. This is not a trick question He is asking us. The answer to that question is, are you spending quiet time with Him to know what is on His mind and heart?

Let me give you an example. When you marry someone, do you really know them as soon as you marry them? Most of us think we do, but it takes a long time to really get to know your spouse and become one with them. Over time, as we become intimate with our mate we become more sensitive to their needs and desires and the things that minister to their hearts. It is the same way with the Father. The more time we spend with Him, we become sensitive to His heart, and what hurts Him, hurts us, and what He loves, we love, and what He hates, we hate. So as we renew our mind by reading and meditating in His Word, and as we pray in the spirit, and spend intimate time with Him, he will begin to speak to us what is on His heart and mind.

In our local body at HIC, we are all anticipating with expectancy and have really been seeking Him to hear His voice as to what He wants us to accomplish for Him in this new season. We are not looking back at what we accomplished in the past season, but we are looking forward to this new day and season He is taking us into. We know that we will accomplish more in this new season because our level of maturity in our body is on a much higher level in the spirit. This is just some of the things the Lord began to speak to my heart prophetically concerning this new way He desires to take us for this new season:
“This is a new day and a new season for High Impact Church and even as I changed your name (from Antioch Family Church) I am changing the direction and face of the ministry. In the former season you represented one facet of my nature, but in this new season you will represent a much deeper side of my nature because of all the things I taught you in the former season. The wisdom and maturity will begin to flow out of you as I have developed in each one of you a garden of fruit that has been ripened for this new season. For they will come in from all areas and say, ‘we are hungry and we are thirsty; it is so dry out there and we are starved for what you have in this place. The land is so parched and cracked and we need to be nourished and refreshed.’ So be encouraged and enlarge the borders of your tent for the latter years of this house will be greater than the former years. Get ready, get ready, get ready, and prepare the vessels for the time of harvest is at hand.”
We know the Lord will continue to speak and reveal more of His heart to us for this new season but this was a very encouraging word for our body and we are very excited about this new season we are entering. We all know that the earth is groaning for the manifestation of the true Sons of God to come forth. 

So I leave you with one of my favorite passages from Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine, for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the Lord will rise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. All the Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” I hope this word encouraged you with hope to wait upon Him and have spiritual ears to listen and hear His voice clearly in this new season He is bringing us all into for His glory.


Join us this Saturday and Sunday at 11940 Industriplex, Ste. 1 in Baton Rouge for a special time of teaching, impartation, and prophetic release with Jubilee Destiny Ministries!

Roger and Charlotte Merschbrock will be ministering on Saturday from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm and Sunday at 10:30 am. There will be a lunch break on Saturday at Jason’s Deli on Siegen Lane (individual purchase)

There is always another “declaration of the end” that comes and goes. Many are convinced right now that “the end” is just ahead. Regardless of doctrine, denomination or affiliation, the church has become increasingly focused on “the end.” When will it all come to an end? Are you sure it will end? How will it end? These are but a few of the questions that have been asked and answered again and again over time. My question is, “How many of us are ready to declare a ‘beginning’?”

Nearly 239 years ago, on July 4th, 1776 our forefathers ended something, then declared a new beginning! This declaration was made on behalf of themselves, their families, their countrymen and the many generations that would follow in their footsteps. Many now celebrate the memory of July 4th as “Independence Day.” Yet I wonder how many of the more than 300 million people in our country actually understand the real significance of our Day of Independence?

I was discussing our country and its spiritual condition one day with a mentor and he spoke these words:

“There has to be a revelation (a revealing of something) that will cause a revolution (a revolving or a turning FROM something TO something) that brings a reformation (a re-formation, a reforming). 

This thought also makes me think of the word “renovation.” I am no contractor or builder, but I do understand that part of the process of renovating a structure would be the “tearing out” of all that is “bad” and replacing it with that which is “good.” As my mentor and friend said these words, I could not help but think about our “declarers of independence!”

In order to better understand the true significance of July 4th, 1776 and all it really means to us, I decided to read, again, our “Unanimous Declaration of Independence.” I was determined to put myself back into their day and that time and read it through the eyes and hearts of those who crafted and signed this divinely inspired document.

As I read, I was captured by some of the phrases such as: “We hold these truths to be self-evident…,” “… endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” and,  “…whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers…to effect their safety and Happiness.” This time, as I read, I became tearfully passionate for our country, our future and our future generations. My angst is more with myself as a pastor and with other shepherds to His flock. We must be more aggressive in informing and educating the people within our sphere of influence.

Someone once said, “Ignorance is no excuse.” We need to admit our ignorance. After all, true ignorance, by definition is the reason revelation even exists! The battle over such things as ill-conceived perceptions, apathy, ignorance, perversion and no love for the truth is being fought in our homes and our nation on a daily basis. Only after admittance and true repentance can we begin to turn from our present state towards a place where we, as ONE people, can be re-formed!

I encourage all reading this to go and read or re-read the Declaration of Independence. Read it slowly, purposefully and with the understanding that how we define words will make all the difference in how you perceive its true meaning. Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart and reveal to you the truths that have always been the foundation of your existence as a citizen of the United States of America. The foundation upon which this nation was built is what is being destroyed; “peace by piece.”

If you are a pastor, don’t just encourage your people to get involved, inspire them! If you are a church attender, you be the inspiration that is needed in your church! Pray for revelation, then turn. Our re-formation depends on it!

2 Chron. 7:14 – If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (KJV).

I would like to begin by asking a simple, yet perhaps complex question…who are you? Some may answer this with their name, while others may state their profession or their country of citizenship. 

Throughout history, this identification was made with a genealogy or a bloodline and it meant everything to them. It was their pride and their strength. In fact, there are whole chapters in the Bible devoted to documenting these genealogical records, but recently it seems that mankind’s concept of identity is coming under attack more now than at any other time before.

While it is understandable that the world may be confused about their identity, it is puzzling to see that there are just as many folks in the church who do not understand their identity. Discovering who we are is a struggle that we all will have, and one that we all must answer to be able to live a life of purpose. The definition of identity is the recognition of being oneself, and not another. Our society seems to be allowing the media and the community to influence and determine who they should be. The result is that many forfeit their identities to the cultural fad at the time. Being someone different than who you were born is by definition a mis-taken identity.

When we turn on the TV or radio, we will no doubt hear stories about those who were born as one gender and underwent a gender “conversion”, which is being championed in the media. We can also find stories about those born as one race and choosing to “identify” as another. We can pretend to change all we want, but the fact is that our DNA remains the same. Our bloodline remains unchanged.

This raises another interesting question…should identity be determined by how we feel or is it determined by something else? There are those who would say that we determine our own identity, but I would profess that true identity is not determined by us; it is merely revealed to us. Let’s start from the beginning and look at a newborn baby. Does that baby have an identity? Yes, it does! You can ask its parents and they will tell you wholeheartedly. Does that newborn baby recognize its identity? No, it does not yet recognize who it is. It will grow up and likely be influenced by those around it, but the fact is that its identity is set at its birth.

 We all have an innate desire to find out where we’ve come from, whether it’s an adopted child searching for its birth parents or someone fascinated by their own ancestry. We often long to know where we are from because it helps connect us to who we are, but instead of asking “where am I from?”, we should really be asking “who am I from?” If we go back to the real beginning, we are created spiritual beings with a spiritual identity that is set by a spiritual birth.

We must put off the mis-taken identities of the world and be born of the Spirit if we are to resolve this identity crisis we are seeing today within the church. It is up to us to carry-on the message of being born again as true heirs of the Kingdom because we don’t die to enter the Kingdom, we are born into the Kingdom. That is God’s way! He is our bloodline and our identity!
