Because He Lives by Bill and Gloria Gather

Happy Easter!

Because He Lives (This one is for you, Mom) Love, Lynn

God sent His Son
They called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my Saviour lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives

And then one day
I'll cross that river
I'll fight life's final war with pain
And then as death gives way to vict'ry
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know he lives

Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives

Help, I've Been Shaken and Can't Get UP!

25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

—HEBREWS 12:25-28

Hebrews 12 28 Shaking lynndonovan com (2)I’ve read this passage a million times. It’s been on Facebook posts, memes on Instagram, quoted by influencers and included in pastor’s messages. I would read this passage and think, This is awesome. God, I want You to shake things up in this world and shake off anything in me or around me that must be shaken.

Up until recently, I thought of this passage with a delightful expectation. After all, I’m fully aware that there are a lot of situations and also people who need Jesus to firmly grip them on the shoulders and give them a “good shake.”


Ya, but it’s something very different when this passage becomes your life.

I’ve been standing on sinking sand in areas I wasn’t aware. Ugh! It makes me so mad to even make this statement. I’ve done so much work in prayer and practice to step into a life of holiness. Truly. And indeed, I do walk in great power, authority, and maturity. I’m not prideful when I say this. I’ve done years and years of work in obedience to gain the Lord’s trust and favor. HARD WORK! Laboring before God.

Many of you have benefited from prayer sessions because I’ve laid down so much to gain the ears and eyes of Jesus. And I’m so humbled to have prayed with many and be present as Jesus shows up to heal, touch, love, and restore His beloved Bride.

But since January 4th of this year, I’ve walked through the shaking of a life-time. I’ll be transparent and admit that twice I experienced an existential crisis in my faith, my life, and future.


There are two things I want to share with you about the last four-five weeks that I’ve learned.



Although I do believe we are surrounded by people, friends and family, who would rush to our side in our time of need, God is what will sustain you when your entire world falls apart.

Even if you doubt. Even if you go through such wild circumstances that you feel like you are watching your life from above. Even when He wakes you in the middle of the night to explain to you what you need to know or learn. (I’ve had weeks of sleepless nights, ugh! AND God has spoken to me about things I didn’t know, misconceptions, out-right lies I believed, and areas of my life that could be better.)

Secondly, if you haven’t been through a shaking, my friends, God will bring it.


Because once all has been shaken, you truly are positioned to pray down principalities and recast the future for millions. I truly believe this.

Are you shaking? I want to be your friend. If your life has shaken apart, I’ll be one sole survivor who will assure you that God will show you many things you didn’t know. He will love you and restore that which is of Him. He will never stop loving you. Even when you are mad, sad, glad, confused, and exhausted.

HE IS ALL WE NEED! I truly know this deep within.

Next week I’ll share a few tips to carry when you are toppling in the shaking. They are lifelines.

I love you so much. I have a deeper love for our Father, Jesus and Spirit and for broken people.

I LOVE YOU! In His grace, Lynn

God said: DO THIS!

1 John 3 8 Lynn DonovanHello Fellow Sojourners,

2021 has started off with tremendous emotions: Fasting, revelation, so many people are very ill, and we are in the midst of a war and turmoil in our nation. And I fear the turmoil isn’t over.

Last week I spent hours in prayer. Sleepless, hours processing all of it with the Lord. His voice has amplified and become even clearer in this hour. I’ve taken so much before the Lord asking for His direction and wisdom. And I believe He has provided me with a clear direction for this current season. I’m to remain focused on this singular mission and never waiver until He redirects. If he redirects.

In light of the censorship that is now upon us, I asked the Lord should I continue to share what I intended about SRA and all that I have learned about the luciferin agenda. I have a concern that my hosting platform will close me down and this affects all the online ministries. I cannot put SUM in jeopardy of closure. With all this in mind….

I asked Father, “What is my mission for this year?”


Then He reminded me that for the past several years that is exactly what I’ve been doing. And I’m powerful and effective to help people through my prayer and coaching sessions. He also then reminded me that the teaching I’ve provided through the books, blogs, the video and field guides have truly brought greater freedom, awareness, and helped many to draw closer to Him.

He then told me to keep teaching about Him. So that is what I will continue to write about. Because it’s impossible to exhaust the exploration of His unending character and personality. I will continue to write about our Father, Jesus and Spirit, the angelic, demonic and numerous other aspects of the spiritual realm.

I am troubled, however, that I feel blocked about sharing publicly what I have learned. But, in our current world-wide trauma, there remain many who just aren’t ready to hear. I’m considering offering a closed course through Zoom for those who are truly interested. I will wait upon the Lord about this. Email me privately if you are interested.

I will continue to believe we live in one of the most exciting times in human history. We must remain steadfast in our faith and refuse to listen to the lies. Now it’s more critical than ever to line up your life with the Word of God. The Word MUST dwell within you. His voice must guide you. And His love will keep you in perfect peace.

The Atmosphere


119037759_367960550895576_8757373016531432331_nA quick update as I'm running around a lot today. 

Do you know what today is? It's Rosh Hashanna I've asked the Lord for some major things to happen today through tomorrow. A sign and a wonder. A change in the weather to put out the fires in California. AND I'm expecting that sign. I don't know what it will be but God is moving and it's going to be amazing.

Also, I feel such a charge in the atmosphere..... There is a presence in the world of HOPE. Hope is being birthed in our world and especially in America. Things are shifting. The Lord is on the move to save our nation and free the captives.

I'm so expectant, so excited, that I'm nearly bouncing up and down in my seat as I type.

THIS is a very unique time that arrives just once a year. It's a time to place a demand on your faith and ask for the new that arrives with God's new year. 

I'll tell you what I prayed about on Monday. You tell me in the comments what you are asking for from the Lord in this next season and we will stand together. Because it's the goodness of God that leads to repentance. And as children of God.....

WE WILL see His goodness in the land of the living. Can I get an amen?


See you in the comments. Hugs.

Are We Living In the End Times?

The End LynndonovancomAre We Living In the End Times?

My friends, I’m stepping away from the study of 1 Corinthians 13 as I want to address the issue of the end-times messages that are overwhelming the Christian church.

Since March there have been a number of doom proclaimers in Christendom. These are well respected and educated pastors, teachers and prophets. So many of them are carrying a message of destruction and that the end of life as we know it is imminent, verily knocking at the door. I’ll admit the few trusted teachers I listen to, have also spoken conflicting messages. So, it’s confusing and frightening to say the least.

However, I’ve asked the Lord about this current season and I’ve been seeking His voice, and His voice alone, to guide me and provide wisdom about the current world circumstances within which we live.

The Word says: 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. —James 5:1

I’ve asked Jesus, over and again. And I continue to come back to the same message. This is what I shared with a friend last week:

I’m still pressing into to hear clearly about it all. Especially because I’m hearing conflicting messages from the few trusted teachers I listen to.  Mostly, I MUST hear clearly from Jesus. But I’m hearing what most others aren’t. Here is what continually comes to me:

This isn’t the end. NOT EVEN CLOSE. We haven’t even begun to see what wickedness will be like at the end times. And I don’t sense that the vaccine is the mark of the beast. However, if they require some kind of biomarker on our hand…. Then that gives me trouble. I would need to seriously pray about that. I don’t think this vaccine is dangerous or loaded with nano bots.

Why am I sharing this? Because there is so much fear and confusion. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. There is a giant harvest that the Lord has been preparing the church to receive. God isn’t going to pull all of us out of the earth before that occurs. I just don’t see that happening.

What I do see is satans feeble attempts to causes division among the races, sexes, ages, and socio and economic lines. And he’s done a good job of creating hatred where there isn’t any. He is also busy working to overthrow the Christian heritage of America. Because he knows if the Christian nation of America fails, so goes the world.

We MUST stop buying into the fear and hype. Ask Jesus what is going on. He will tell you. He will tell you that Covid IS NOT from heaven. It wasn’t God’s punishment. The pandemic is a practice round for the enemy to see how far we will bend. Truly.

My friends, OUR PRAYERS defeat the enemy. But if we are bound up in fear, faith cannot function. Step out of fear. Determine that our beautiful earth will go on for another 1,000 years. We will see the generations to come and we will see the rescue of humanity again and again BECAUSE THAT’S OUR FATHER.

I’ll share more updates with you as I continue to pray. I know I have one coming about October 31st and also a post about the election. I have revelation about both.

Listen to me. We are not weak cowards. We aren’t victims. We have Christ, the Living God, within us. Let satan see that in our eyes and shiver!!!  Hallelujah. AMEN


"For the LORD is good; His loving kindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations." —Psalm 100:5

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? —Numbers 23:19
