IGBY International Ministries
In Deuteronomy, Joshua was commissioned to lead a wandering generation into the promised land with a promise from the Lord. Here is that promise...
Deuteronomy 31:8 “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
If you are following the will of God for your life, you can claim the same promise. You can know the Lord will go before you, he will never leave you, he will never forsake you, and you never have to be afraid nor be discouraged.
In these dark days we are living in and the darker days we are entering into, these words will become more and more pivotal to moving forward in the Lord's will for our lives.
The Supernatural Backstory of IGBY
While I served under Pastor Jim Bakker for over 7 years at Morningside, I can’t even tell you how many times partners of the ministry who traveled from all parts of the country to visit would call me Joshua instead of Zach while I was speaking with them. At first I would just smile and say, ‘actually my name is Zach,’ but it became so frequent that when it would happen I just let them be and never told them that they had made a mistake.
I found it even more curious when some in the executive staff, in which I would work alongside day by day, would mistakenly call me Josh instead of Zach as well. It just keeps going! I even remember Jim and Lori themselves several different times calling me Josh by mistake.
I still remember the day I officially packed up my U-Haul and left Morningside the Torah portion that was to be read that day by Jews around the world. the passage reading was about the day Moses passed the mantle on to Joshua to lead the Israelites. What are the chances? Was all this just a coincidence? I think not! Someone once told me that coincidences are just God's way of remaining anonymous.
After I moved from Missouri and headed to my next assignment in Vero Beach, Florida working for TRUNEWS, I wasn’t shocked that the trend continued with some of the executive staff and other team members mistakenly calling me Joshua. The Lord was making this incredibly clear. I even remember Rick Wiles, the host of the program, calling me Josh on the flagship radio broadcast.
It had been clear for many years what the Lord was trying to tell me through all of this, especially as the trends continued and more Joshua experiences took place. I understood the Lord was placing a Joshua type of anointing over my life, but a new type of Joshua.... A watchmen Joshua, a Joshua that is called to help lead a wondering generation into a promised land through news, prophecy, and so much more..
