After ten years of frustrated preaching and then suddenly from heaven… Jim Hammerle is free at last!
For the last ten years I have suffered the frustration of “F.S.U.I.M.B.” (Jeremiah 20:9) – Fire Shut Up In My Bones.
Hardly a day when by that I was not deeply troubled, because I had no clear opportunity to open my mouth about the Kingdom, to my highly driven, super motivated, super busy customer base. I wept in the spirit many nights, for one opportunity to share the love of the Father with them, seemingly to no avail.
Now ten years later, still frustrated, at age 76, Father totally rearranges my live to the tiniest detail. Cancer suddenly popped up on my screen and Father suddenly in 2½ days moved me from a super high speed business/ ministry dealing with dozens of agencies, hundreds of company’s and even thousands of people in the business world to……… nothing. Flat-lined to nothing but time, at least that’s what I thought.
But the change was so supernatural, because it was jam packed full of perfect peace. This sudden change 6 months ago would have killed me, but instead I became energized the more revelation I received.
Talk about change! Wow! My cell phone that was never more than 10 seconds from being answered, seldom rang. Over the ten years, Kingdom money that was in abundance (by the tens of thousands) to be given away at Father’s will and direction, dropped to a social security check.
Father’s company, Call Maintenance Inc. in 2½ days was placed in the hands of His next man in line and seemed as natural as breathing. That’s not all – in that 2½ days, moving to Florida from New York, giving away all my furniture, leaving thousands behind with no hugs or explanation, and not even enough time to cry.
Giving away the Hummer meant, where I was going, I wouldn’t even need a driver’s license. But instead of killing me, all of this was supernaturally, strangely energizing me to a height of joy that I have never experienced.
Then WHAM! Frustration returned super strong, because business was all over, My preaching opportunity to my customer base was gone forever!
I asked Father what about all my customer base that are headed away from You LORD? I failed them! I never had a chance to preach Kingdom, life, love, or supply to them.
As I was saying that to myself in the kitchen yesterday after 3 months in Florida, suddenly from heaven came these words in revelation form: “I have let you preach the Kingdom every day for the last 10 years, but now I’m going to let you use words.”
Wow! Revelation time! Father went on to explain. It took ten years for Him and me working together, to build a platform strong enough for me to preach verbally from. Ten years of demonstrating the Kingdom before He would let me talk about it.
Then the manifestation appeared: corporate heads; bar owners; workers; electricians; architects and people with customer bases numbering in the thousands, started sending words like this one I just copied and pasted, “God bless you JIM. You’re a wonderful man and one of the best people I’ve ever dealt with. Sent from my iPhone”
At that second, the words I have been waiting to hear for ten years were spoken! He said, “Now speak and tell them why they have ears to hear now, and they can hear you.”
To seal it, yesterday one of my spiritual sons, Billy Evans called and said, the LORD said: “it’s Jim’s harvest time.” Wow! WOW, and WOW!
He let me sow, He let me water, and now He is actually letting me see Him bring in some of the harvest, before I leave. This is my finest hour and for icing on the cake, He has removed the pain from my body.
Does anyone wonder why I say, “I’m the happiest man on the planet!”
Father, I’m so crazy about you!
Postscript: I’m actually getting booked up each morning with those I was burdened for over the 10 years. Names come to me and in a day or so they contact me!
“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay,” Jeremiah 20:9 (KJV).
