“Feast” On The Lord

“Feast” on the Lord

Jean Mulquin

In mid-March of this year (2020), we got word that the COVID-19 virus was shutting down economies all over the world. Around the same time, Katie received a word from the Lord that she was to fast for 40 days. Of course, she invited the staff to fast with her. However, this was not an ordinary fast.  This was more of a feast – feasting on Jesus by worshipping morning and night while anointing ourselves with oil and taking communion. Then, the last week of the fast we would eat vegetables for 4 days and have only water for 3 remaining days.

As soon as we agreed to join her in this important commitment (fasting is always an adventure), all hell broke out against the ministry. We were already in transition because one of our key employees had given notice, sensing that her time with us had ended. Then, people began to get sick, not with COVID-19 symptoms, but with other bizarre ailments. However, we soldiered on, knowing that fasting always produces fruit.

Sure enough, God began downloading fresh revelation to Katie and she was able to come into the office and teach them to us. Soon, I was bombarded with staff dreams and visions.  The fast was working!!

Then, on Wednesday, April 22nd while praying with our Genesis group, I had a short vision.  This happened while Debbie was praying that we “shake off” depression and fear. As she was speaking, I saw a sheep being sheared. The shepherd was so adept at his job, that the wool came off all in one piece! I knew that God was saying, “You have been cooped up, but you have been growing a wonderful thick coat, which has covered you and has given you protection and revelation. Now, it’s time to be sheared so that your wool can be used to cover others in the clothing and blankets it will make!” I knew that in part this “wool” was Katie’s next book that she was already working on, which will touch hundreds of thousands all over the world. Wow!

The next day, Melanie, one of our Genesis Leaders that had been on the call, sent me a portion of this scripture from Song of Songs.

“Listen, my dearest darling, you are so beautiful—you are beauty itself to me! Your eyes glisten with love, like gentle doves behind your veil. What devotion I see each time I gaze upon you. You are like a sacrifice ready to be offered. When I look at you, I see how you have taken my fruit and tasted my word. Your life has become clean and pure, like a lamb washed and newly shorn. You now show grace and balance with truth on display. Your lips are as lovely as Rahab’s scarlet ribbon, speaking mercy, speaking grace. The words of your mouth are as refreshing as an oasis. What pleasure you bring to me! I see your blushing cheeks opened like the halves of a pomegranate, showing through your veil of tender meekness. When I look at you, I see your inner strength, so stately and strong. You are as secure as David’s fortress. Your virtues and grace cause a thousand famous soldiers to surrender to your beauty. Your pure faith and love rest over your heart as you nurture those who are yet infants.”  Song of Songs 4:1-5 (TPT)

How this scripture spoke to my heart!

This has been such a challenging time for many of us. We have endured so much as we have watched our world’s economy come crashing down, schools closing, people without jobs or money, and have experienced shortages of all kinds. Most small businesses and ministries have been hard hit. Families have lost loved ones and have not been able to see each other face to face or even be together when one is sick in the hospital. Churches are closed and worship teams are all but silent! We watch huge gatherings of believers worshipping on YouTube and long for this “thing” to be over so we can be together again praising our God.

In this time of pain and isolation, God sees us! He sees that we are pressing in to honor Him. We are pushing back the fear that wants to engulf us. This fast has been so important and it is working not only for our good, but for the good of the world, as we pray!

When was the last time you fasted? Traditional fasting is necessary, but perhaps you should try “feasting” along with us! Get out your olive oil, bread and grape juice, put on your favorite worship music, and spend time with Jesus morning and night and see if you break through!

Comment below if you will commit to “feasting” on the Lord.

Share below what you anticipate God will do for you through your time of “feasting” on the Lord.

Have you been blessed by this ministry? If so, consider Partnering with us or making a One Time Gift! I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers!

    I will join in, I trust God for perfect healing in all areas of my life

      I would love to join! I have been unsuccessful in traditional fasting except for a few days with Gods grace. I think, however, that helped me to really see my need for him. So i have been asking what He wants me to do. Question though.. do you set a certain amount of time? I don’t want to do this under law but by grace. Am still learning the difference. God gave me a great revelation today: under the law is self occupied, and under grace is Christ centered. Seems so simple but I never simply understood before. God bless you and the Katie Souza ministry team. In Jesus name

      Feasting on Jesus is spending time with Jesus, reading the Gospels, worshipping loving on Jesus!!

    It is something because God has had me feasting on JESUS day and night along with you guys to my unaware supernaturally. I just became a partner yesterday and I am overwhelmed with joy that Father instructed me to do so. I am currently reading “Be Revived” and it is a fantastic blessing. I’m on FB with you all as of today. I’m listening to YouTube calming videos at night while I’m sleeping from Katie and I started listening to the lessons on your website. God instructed me that I will be moving from DC to California. It is been prophesied several times. I would love for prayer to cover me while I continue getting instructions from God. This is definitely a faith walk. I have never thought about moving there. Yet I feel comfort in knowing this is Him moving me and my son. I’m excited but at the same time…. I don’t have a clue on a lot of the plans. I just found out today from Him when we are moving. I know the how. But I still don’t know where other than Southern California. Anyway I’m sure glad to be partners with you because I know you all pray! Thank you for all you do! I truly appreciate you and I’m praying for you all as well.

      One verse that helped me get through a fast is: “Into your hands I commit my spirit.”

  • Felicity Ngozo

    Thank you so much for giving detail on how to break the fast with the veggies only diet and then water only. The fast so far has been so powerful. Giants in and around us falling everyday. Thank you for sharing. God bless you exceedingly. Shalom

    Hi Katy. I am from South Africa and our lockdown started on 27 March. Today is day 50 and we will be going into level 3 end of May. Wow wow wow what a lockdown since now? I feasted with Jesus in our garden of intimacy since day 1 with worshipping, communion and prayer and wow what a journey! Love this Song of Songs scripture you shared, I journeled it too during lockdown. Everyday I wrote down what Jesus shared with me and we are busy working through Proverbs most of the time. I had so many visions and dreams in this 50 days and wrote them all down and will also start writing a book about this journey. The one vision standing out, is the one where I saw Jesus at a fountain of water. The water was light blue and crystal clear almost like the sea at one or other tropical island. And as he bend over and scooping the water with His one hand, the bride was next to Him and she reached for his hand looking in His eyes and drinking the water out of His hand and Jesus said, “Now is the time that you will drink directly from My hand, here in my garden of intimacy where I personally will show you my hidden treasures. Not through a prophet, church or teacher – DIRECTLY from me!” Wow I was so overwhelmed by His love…He is wooing us to come close and personal in this time! He also talked to me about Matt 25 and pinn pointed this is the midnight hour shout-season to wake up the 10 virgins! Our King is coming! I’m also fasting all social media activity from today, no FB, whatsapp or Twitter. I know something supernatural will happen because while I was praying for our nation I saw God releasing His heavenly armies over the earth! This battle is God’s! Wow exciting times my friend! Love you lotz and so much blessings for you with a fresh anointing of wisdom of God for you and you team. Love Mataniah Lochner

  • Dani

    Yes, I will certainly be!!.

  • Tammy Keough

    I have been spending more time in prayer, but I love this “Feasting on Jesus”. I will join the FEAST! I’m working on being Revived! Praying, dancing, soaking, quoting grace scriptures, while waiting on the Lord to birth several promises to me….I want my youth rejuvenated, aches and pains to be gone, skin to be renewed. I’m believing for the return of my daughter to the call of God on her life, and for the salvation of my ex-husband, Vincent, to see him after 30 years! I’m also believing for my other daughter to be healed of all acne and acne scars. My son and I to have our eyesight restore to 20/20 or better! All of us to be moving more in the gifts of the spirit…..

    Hi Katie and Team
    I would love to join the feast. Been pressing in and believing for my freedom in mind, body and soul etc
    Fasting is important, and one I am learning more and more about.
    I know scripture says no food or drink is the design for fasting but intrigued with ur olive oil, bread and grape juice. Of course I know about daily eating the bread and cup to remember what Jesus did for us.
    But the olive oil as well? I’m interested.
    Feasting at the Lord’s supper xoxo
    Look forward to hearing from you soon
    Blessings and anointings xo

    I will join in on the Feast!

  • Angee

    I’m in and looking forward to. My son has made son unwise decisions in his youth, he’s 18 and now must be turned into the authorities Sunday. He is saved but he needs wisdom and get away from negative influences. I am also praying for the spirit of youth, weight loss, just the will to want to live out God’s plan on this earth. I constantly ask the Lord the let me come home. I just want Jesus! Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Kim

    Joining the feast.

  • Lorena

Me and my husband will be separated a year…he came back to the Lord in November 2019 and has been growing stronger in the Lord, and he wants to be back with his family…pray for God to intervene. Thank you, God bless.

  • Cindy D May

    Jean–this is awesome. I’ve been toying with the idea of fasting, but hadn’t made a definite commitment. Just read this. I’m in–for my healing and my marriage! And for so much more of Jesus.

  • Cleopatra Zondo

    I commit in fasting in and out and in prayer
