December 3, 2009 A Corporate Dig
The Lord said, "Throw out the net. Gather them in and begin a corporate dig. The provision is in the deep."
So in obedience I throw out the net and draw you in by the Spirit to a corporate dig. Taking up the gift and tool of the Holy Spirit, using our heavenly prayer language, I invite and encourage you to activate it together in a "corporate dig" for the uncovering and releasing of the divine provision for the Body and Bride of Christ in this kingdom hour. There is a supernatural provision hidden deep in the things of God that can only be uncovered and unlocked by the Spirit. We will go deep in the Spirit by the Spirit in a corporate effort digging past the hardened obstructions and levels of fleshly and mental distractions that the enemy would use to keep us from unlocking it.
And as we do this I believe we will corporately see a release in the natural as we activate the supernatural. On a corporate level I believe we will see doors unlocked and swing open that have remained locked and inaccessible for years. We will see a supernatural favor released and experienced individually and corporately that we have never seen before. I believe we will walk in a divine health and clearity of mind and focus, seeing God's hand through answered prayer in our lives and in our families and churches as we never have seen before. God will move mountains as we activate His gift through our heavenly prayer language.
So I encourage you in the Lord. Use your gift. Pray much in the Holy Spirit. Dig deep into the Spirit with the Spirit. Unlock and release. Uncover and discover. God has great blessings for us, supernatural provision and an inheritance that has been predestined for us for a good work that He has prepared beforehand that we should walk in.
November 7, 2009 Activate the Supernatural
"And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weaknesses, for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God." (Romans 8: 26-27)
The Lord wants to encourage you today to pray much in the Holy Spirit. It's a supernatural prayer language that He has given to us to activate the supernatural in our lives and bring forth those things that He has shown us in the Spirit and has given us faith to believe for. These things are revealed to us in the Spirit and brought forth through faith and prayer. God meets all of our needs and gives us all we need to do and see what He gives us faith for. This supernatural personal prayer language is the link to bring it forth. It's our responsibility to active that prayer language and release the Spirit to move on it. Prayer is earth's invitation to heaven's intervention. So I encourage you today by the Spirit to activate your prayer language. Rise up in the spirit of faith and see God move. Step out of the boat and step into the supernatural. He has given us all we need to bring it into the natural.
July 28, 2009 - The River and the Glory
Ezekiel 47: 1-12
We send out this river that flows out from under the doors of the sanctuary.
July 7, 2009 - Pray On Church
"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their land."
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
Pray on..... for you are who the Lord is looking for.
Pray on..... for this will tear those mighty strongholds down.
Stay on your knees for this is where the battle is won.
Very soon you'll win the victory. Pray on.
July 1, 2009 - Pray and Intercede for the Church
Take a few minutes out of your day today and pray and intercede through these songs for the Church. We need the Spirit of God to fall upon us in a fresh new way.
"Father, bring together a Church that bears Your name, fill us with the passion to proclaim that Jesus reigns.
Pour oil on our prayers and let Your Spirit come. We'll fight against the darkness. Don't let the flame die down. The Church stands before You in worship, prayers burning bright against the sky. Lord, we've got to burn, not just a flickering flame, but to be holy consumed in Your name."
"Lord, we need Your grace and mercy. We need to pray like never before. We need the power of Your Holy Spirit to open heaven's door.
Spirit touch Your Church, stir the hearts of men, revive us Lord with Your passion once again.
I want to care for others like Jesus cares for me. Let Your rain fall upon me."
April 17, 2009 - Come Up Here
"After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I heard, like the sound of the trumpet speaking to me, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things." (Rev 4:1)
There is an open heaven above us and God is calling us up into it. He is calling us up higher into the realm of the Spirit where He will reveal Himself to us, where our lives will be transformed and be lived out through Him in victory, in power and in peace. God is calling us up higher into the realm of the Spirit.
"Lord, it's up here that I want to live and move and have my being in You. Teach me up here to know You and love You more. Teach me up here how to communicate Your love to others and to be Your vessel that draws others to You by Your love."
As we come up into the open heaven our eyes are open to see what is already ours in Christ, and our heart and spirit sees and rejoices and begins to resound in thanksgiving. Our thanksgiving releases creative power and energy that begins to create and manifest what we are rejoicing about. Our faith and spirit create and manifest in the natural what we are seeing and experiencing in the Spirit.
In the beginning God created the heavens, and then He created the earth. He starts His heavenly creations and manifestations in the heavens (in the Spirit), and then they are formed and manifested in the natural (in the earth).
As men and women of the Spirit, birthed out of the Spirit of God, we must follow the leading of our Father's ways by creating what we desire here on earth by the Spirit in the realm of the Spirit. It's already been created and accomplished for us by the redemptive work of the cross, now we must rise up into that new creation life of Christ and live and operate out of that heavenly position enthroned with Him at the right hand of the Father. Now we must rise up into that new creation life in Christ and speak out of that realm of the Spirit that releases, creates and manifests that which we are seeing and experiencing in that spiritual realm. Heaven and earth move in response to the spoken word of the Spirit of God. Ministering angels wait in the wings to respond and assist to the word of faith that is released out of our mouth. So live in the Spirit and speak out from the Spirit, and Jesus will move heaven and earth to align itself with that spoken word of faith.
(Rev 4:1, Gen 1:1, 1 Jn 5:1, Heb 1:14)
March 30, 2009 - Remember Us In Your Favor
"Remember me, O Lord, in Thy favor toward Thy people.
Visit me with Thy salvation,
That I may see the prosperity of Thy chosen ones." (Psalms 106:4,5)
Arise and have compaasion on Zion, for it is time to be gracious to her, for the appointed time has come.
For You have chosen Zion and You have desired it for Your habitation.
Zion is Your resting place forever. Here You dwell, Lord, for You have desired it.
You will abundantly bless her provision and will satisfy the needy with bread.
So remember us, O Lord, in Your favor toward Your people. Remember us as one that stands in proxy to Your house, to Zion, Your resting place. Visit us with Your salvation, with an open heaven that releases blessing and favor that there's not room enough to receive it and that rebukes the devour for our sake. Visit us with the salvation of Your manifold and all sufficient grace that You cause to abound towards us, that having sufficiency in all things that we would have an abundance for every good work. Remember us and visit us, Lord, that we may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, the children and family of Your covenant. Come, Lord, come. Manifest the greatness of Your glory and all sufficient grace.
Lord, the time has come to be gracious to Zion, for yes, the appointed time has come.
(Ps 106:4,5; Ps 102:13; Ps 132:13-15; 2 Cor 9:8)
March 20, 2009 - The Appointed Time Has Come
"Thou wilt arise and have compassion on Zion;
For it is time to be gracious to her,
For the appointed time has come." (Psalm 102:13)
The appointed time has come, Lord. Arise and have compassion on Zion. Arise and be glorified upon Your resting place, the place of Your holy presence. You have chosen Zion and have desired it for Your habitation. Here You said You would dwell and abundantly bless her provision and satisfy the needy with bread. The time has come to be gracious to her, Lord. The time has come to have compassion and show Yourself glorious on her behalf. Her love and passion burns strong for You in this dark hour. The circumstances have fueled her devotion. She remains steadfast and immovable in her worship and adoration to You. Look upon her with Your heart of love and compassion and move mightily on her behalf. There is a river in the midst of her whose streams make glad the city of God. You are in the midst of her, she will not be moved.
(Ps 132:13-15; Ps 46:4,5)
February 27, 2009 - God's Stimulus Package
"Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise," says the Lord; "I will set him in the safety for which he longs."
This is God's stimulus package: Put God and His house first.
As goes the house of God, so goes the nation.
1. Putting God and His house first, take the wealth of the wicked that's been layed up for the righteous and pour it into the house of God, canceling all debt in the house and in His family, making "a public spectacle" out of the devil by "canceling the certificates of debt consisting of decrees against us and which was hostile to us."
2. Then "divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless into the house" by blessing others in need outside the house of God with that which you have been blessed with (the bread and truth of His Word and the new financial blessing of His increase).
3. Then "give yourself to the hungry, and satisfy the desire of the afflicted". Feel the heart of God for the poor and the hungry, reaching out and sowing seeds of blessing into their lives and their nation to meet them at the point of their need.
Then "your light will break out like the dawn and your recovery will speedily spring forth."
(Prov 13:22; Col 3:14-15; Is 58:6-12)
February 11, 2009 - Speak to the Rock
"I love Thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies." (Ps 18:1-3)
"Take the rod; and you and your brother Aaron assemble the congregation and speak to the rock before their eyes, that it may yield its water. You shall thus bring forth water for them out of the rock and let the congregation and their beasts drink." (Numbers 20:8)
Take your authority in Christ and speak to the Rock in you for your need in this hour. The Rock, Christ in you, is sufficient. Speak to it in faith. The Rock will provide. Call forth your healing from the Rock. Call forth your provision, your inheritance, your blessing. The Rock contains the supernatural power and provision for your need. When spoken to in faith, the Rock will provide. Walk forward in faith, but keep your eye on the Rock.
God told Moses to "speak to the rock", but after Moses gathered the congregation he began to second guess and think that the Word was not sufficient, and he "struck the rock" instead. Through his lack of faith and his disobedience Moses was not able to enter the Promised Land.
The Word of God IS sufficient. Speak the Word. Speak to the Rock. He will show forth His glory in this hour.
Redeemer come forth from the Rock!
February 4, 2009 - The Treasures of Darkness
"And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden wealth of secret places,
In order that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name." (Isaiah 45:3)
When you come to Jesus and drink He gives you treasures in those places of darkness, those places of confusion and pain. He gives you healing for your heart, peace for your mind, rest for your body and strength for your spirit. He gives you the treasures of His life Spirit, living waters that bring forth life and healing.
When you come to Jesus and drink He reveals hidden wealth and provision for your need. It's in the secret place of His presence that He reveals Himself to you. All that you need is in Him and He is in you. He IS your wealth. He IS your Rock that you can speak to, as He told Moses to do in the wilderness that will bring forth the wealth and riches, the provision of His life giving waters.
He is the Lord, and there is no other.
January 29, 2009 - Power Perfected in Weakness
"My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness."
"Therefore I am content with weakness, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Cor 12:9,10)
God's strength and power is perfected and more evident in our weakness.
When we "can't", He can.
God's bringing us individually and corporately to a new level of His power. As we recognize our weakness and inability , and we depend, wait and draw upon His grace that is all sufficient, His strength and power rises up in our spiritman and causes us to rise up on wings of eagles, seeing from His perspective, and then confidence and boldness arises to speak out His will and plan into the circumstance and the earth.
"He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power.
Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."
You get your wings in the secret place while you wait.
Is anyone weak? Does anyone desire to fly and be free. You'll find and receive it in the secret place, resting and waiting upon the Lord. Let His power, His glory and His grace be revealed as you surrender yourself and fall back into His arms of grace and love. His love will never fail you, His grace is sufficient and His power is perfected in your weakness. When you are weak, then He is strong.
"God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having sufficiency in all things you may have an abundance for every good work." (2 Cor. 9:8)
Lord, we call and wait upon You, for we are in need of this abundant grace for this new place that You are taking us into, this place of transitioning into the new thing that You are doing in the house and in the earth. We wait upon You in the secret place, drawing and drinking from the rivers of Your presence.
January 28, 2009 - Drink From the Fountain of Life
"How precious is Thy lovingkindness oh God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.
They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Thy delight,
For with You is the fountain of life, and in Your light we see light."
(Psalm 36: 7-9)
When we come to Jesus and drink from Him, He fills us with Himself and all His pleasures and His delights for us -- all the good things and plans He has for us and for our future. When we drink we receive the anointing, the power, the authority and the grace to fulfill those plans and pleasures. When we drink we see from His perspective with His light into the dark and unknown places that would try to bring fear and intimidation upon us to keep us from moving forward into our future and destiny. We must have light to see and navigate our way through the darkness and deception of this world. This comes from drinking from the fountain and river of life that's found only in Jesus, in His presence.
Drink daily. Drink often. Drink and receive. Drink and be refreshed. Drink and be filled. Drink. Drink. Drink
"If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink."
This is one of the major hidden keys to the kingdom.
November 26 2008 - Your Inheritance
"We have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose." (Eph 1:11)
As a child of God we have an inheritance that is ours to receive right now, to draw upon as an abiding member and branch in the Vine. This inheritance has been predestined for you and for me for a good work that God the Father has prepared beforehand that we should walk in. (Eph 1:11 & Eph 2:10) There is a purpose that He has predestined us for, and He has made provision for it though an inheritance that He has given and prepared for us through the death and resurrected life of Jesus Christ. As believers we enter into that covenant relationship and are partakers of that inheritance. And that inheritance is both spiritual and physical. It's both spiritual and financial. We inherit a life in the spirit that is eternal that will never die, and we also inherit a phyical and financial flow and outpouring of kingdom provision through our inheritance as we step out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of light through our salvation experience of accepting Christ into our hearts and giving Him Lordship of our lives.
Through Christ we have inherited all, and we can lay claim on that inheritance now, because He has already passed through death. You don't gain an inheritance when you die but when the testator dies. A testator is a person who has died and left a valid will. When Jesus died on the cross and then rose again He gave up all and gained it all back for you and me, leaving in His will all that was His for us (Eph 1:3). That included all His power, all His authority, all His wisdom and knowledge, and all His divine health, wealth and divine supply from His heavenly position as King. It's yours and mine to receive, to claim and to draw upon. Without faith and without actively drawing upon it through faith and prayer our inheritance remains in its holding place in heaven, resident but untapped within us, and you and I remain without and lacking here on earth. So, it's our responsibility and our duty to draw upon this inheritance, to put a demand on the withdrawal of that which is ours and that which has already been freely given to us.
Our Father is wanting to bless us and prosper us in every way. He is wanting to glorify Himself through us and through our prosperity, and He sent His Son, Jesus, to make the way for us to receive and be recipients of His kingdom life and riches of all that is His in the kingdom. We have believed and received His death and sacrifice, but we have fallen short of pressing in with our faith to truly receive the fullness of our inheritance, to draw upon it from the Vine, our true life Source. The enemy has used every tool and circumstance to distract and derail us from pursuing what he knows belongs to us. He has kept us busy and obsorbed in the demands of life so that we would never tap into the truth and discover that place of abiding and rest. Because it's in this place of rest that we tap into the revelation of our true identity and inheritance. This place of rest is where our true power and authority are excerised. It's in the rest that we tap into our hidden and resident power that sets things in motion for us. We have busied ourselves trying to make things happen in our own flesh, our own might and power, creating weariness and frustration within ourselves. But Jesus is calling us to rest and come to Him, to come and get to know Him more intimately and personally. He wants to share His heart and the treasures of His Word with us. He wants us each to know Him intimately and know what His diving purpose and will is for our life. It's through the quiet and settled times with Him that we discover it and can then move forward in confidence, power and authority.
So, in these unsettled times "strive to enter into a rest". Let's rest, abide and draw together upon our inheritance, that which has already been freely given to us as children of God.
November 17, 2008 - A Great Awakening
As God shakes everything that can be shaken and responds to the cry of the intercessors, releasing His Spirit, eyes and ears will be open to hear, see and understand the Father's heart, the Kingdom way. They will begin to see from a kingdom perspective, shifting their faith away from the world's economic system to the Kingdom economic system. As they begin see and understand where the bulk of their investments should lie, they will begin to sow into the kingdom by even purchasing forclosed homes and sowing them into lives as a seed of Kingdom investment for a blessing in both their lives and the family they sow into. The gift of giving and generosity will increase and multiply and become even more visible and at a higher level as the revelation of the Kingdom becomes more clear. The spirit of generosity and giving will become the redeeming grace of this country, this people and the world.
As the Spirit of God moves across this country bringing conviction of God's people to where their faith really lies, of where their hearts really are, because "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also", people will begin to have an awakening of truth to their faith and of God's Kingdom promises and principles. A greater dependance of God will come out of their desperation. A fresh experience of the cross will take place, and a new man and creation will arise that's trusting, walking and living in kingdom principles. An awakening of faith in Kingdom sowing and Kingdom blessing will take place, and out of the squeeze and ashes of this economic breakdown will arise God's redemptive work and a Body that truly has died to their old man and ways and has called upon His name, receiving His grace and mercy for a new beginning. A great awakening will take place as we reallign our hearts with the Father's and fall back into His arms of love, grace and mercy.
God's doing a work. It may hurt for a season, but growth and change must take place for His Body to become the men and women of faith and integrity that we are called to be, so that we can do the works of Jesus that we're called to do in this last hour. "Those things that I do, you will do also, and greater things will you do, because I go to the Father."
Have faith. Seek a kingdom focus and perspective and let God's Spirit lead you safely through the shaking. Be a branch that truly draws from the Vine, the true Source of the fruit that you desire to bear.
September 12, 2008 - Life Agents
"And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet." (Romans's 16:20)
There is an assignment that God has given in this last hour, "Operation: Free the Bride". It's an assignment to destroy debt and release finances in the Body and Bride of Christ. It's an assignment to pay the debt that we owe to this world as believers, as children of God, to BE the manifestation of the sons of God. And in this assignment God is recruiting Life Agents, men and women of God full of the Holy Spirit that will crush the head of the devil, the spirit of death that has been sucking the life out of His people, out of their bodies, their finances, their families, and their marriages. He is raising up and recruiting Agents of His Life Spirit that will lift up their hearts, their arms and their hands up to the God of Life and say, "Anoint me with LIFE!", and then taking a deep breath of the Spirit and receiving the gift, with a new resolve they will crush the head of the devil with their heel, they will crush debt, lack and poverty, they will crush fear, doubt and unbelief, discouragement, sickness and infirmity and every demon that has tormented them. And then with a new faith and a new resolve they will go forth into their homes, their workplaces, and their cities and they will be a blessing of LIFE, for He has blessed us to be a blessing.
God is recruiting Life Agents that know their God, that know who they are in Christ, and that will go forth in the power of the Spirit and take the land, take back that which has been stolen from them. He is recruting Life Agents that know the power of the abiding life, that know how to abide in the shadow of the Almighty, how to rest in His presence and how to draw upon the anointing. He is looking and recruiting Life Agents that see the life potential in the down-and-out, the outcast, and the one that's given up on life, Life Agents that will be His vehicle and agent to infuse and give new hope and LIFE to the weak and the defeated, that will be His agent and hand of healing and compassion.
Jesus came to give life and give it abundantly. It's no longer we that live but Christ that lives in us. WE are His Life Agents. WE are His agents of life and blessing. Lift up your heart, your hands and your arms to the God of Life and say, "Anoint me with LIFE!". Then go into your day and bless someone. You are blessed to be a blessing.
September 4, 2008 - Let There Be.......
And the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light", and there was light. (Genesis 1:2,3)
The Spirit of the living God in me says, "Let there be a windfall.................Let there be a windfall................Let there be an outpouring of financial blessing of great magnitude into the House of Destiny, into the House of God, into the place of His holy presence and rest.
I give You an assignment, Holy Spirit, move on the spoken Word of God released out of the Spirit of the living God who dwells within me. I give You an assignment, Holy Spirit. Open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing into this house that there is not room enough to receive it. Rebuke the devour for their sake. Glorify the Father, the Son, and Yourself in our midst.
We stand in our position of authority as the Bride of Christ, and we partner with Him to release the blessing and manifestation of the Kingdom in this hour. Move Holy Spirit. Unlock and release. Unlock and release.
It's no longer I that live but it's Christ that lives in me. I speak out of the Spirit of Christ in me that has deposited an assignment to bring forth into the Body of Christ. I speak it and release it for this Kingdom hour in Jesus name.
September 1, 2008 - Prophesy to the Bones
“Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, “O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
Thus says the Lord God to these bones, “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”
As we move forward with the Lord, entering into our Kingdom purpose and destiny, He is saying to me, “Prophesy to the bones. Prophesy to the vision. Prophesy to the assignment that I’ve given you. I’ve told you that I’m sending you on a debt-destroying mission, that I want My Bride free from debt and glorifying Me in her giving and generosity. I’ve given you an assignment. Now speak “LIFE” to it.”
So I speak “LIFE” to this assignment. I speak “LIFE” to the heart of this assignment. I speak “LIFE” to the arms and the legs, to the hands, the feet, the fingers, the toes, the mouth, the ears and the eyes of this assignment. I call skin, flesh and breath to come into this assignment. I call every gift, every person with the gift of leadership, every person with the gift of giving and financial provision, every person with the gift of administration, with the gift of prophetic declaration and proclamation. I call every person with the gift of intercession, every person with the gift of teaching, with the gift of serving, with the gift of influence in the community. I call and speak to those gifts to come forth in Jesus name, to receive the heart and vision of the Lord for this assignment. I call forth our divine inheritance, the financial blessing and provision predestined and appointed for this assignment for this good work that You’ve called us to. I call forth the harvest of the seed that’s been sown into the House of God, the harvest of tithes and offerings, the harvest of divine blessing. I speak “LIFE” to the vision. I speak “UNITY”. I speak “FREEDOM”. I speak “LIBERTY”. I speak “GENEROSITY”. I speak “HEALING and WHOLENESS”. I speak “Grace, grace” to the mountain of lack and debt and “LIFE” to the mission, “LIFE!” to the assignment.
I prophesy to the bones. I prophesy to the vision. I prophesy to the assignment of the word of purpose and destiny that God’s given me, to the word of purpose and destiny that God’s given to His Bride – His life partner and world-changer.
I call forth LIFE Agents, men and women of God, men and women full of the Holy Spirit to come forth and align their hearts and lives with this assignment, to be His agents of life and blessing. I call them forth from the North, the South, the East and the West to come forth in Jesus name. I say, “Breath of God, breathe into their hearts, breathe into this assignment, breathe into these bones.” I say, “Come ALIVE in Jesus name! Come ALIVE! Come ALIVE in Jesus name! Come ALIVE!”
August 25, 2008 - An Outpouring of Favor
A sign and a wonder - a sign of the outpouring of supernatural divine favor upon the House of Destiny, a fountainhead of the anointing. It's God's glorious grace and favor being poured out upon the House. We're stepping over into new realms of His Glory - the glory of His manifested presence.
August 8, 2008 - Triple New Beginning!
In the Bible the number 8 means "New Beginning". Today is 8-8-08. We declare THIS IS THE DAY of New Beginnings for the Body and Bride of Christ and the House of God. We declare a double portion, a triple outpouring of God's power and grace upon His House and upon His people. We declare a triple surge of a new wave of healing to flow through His Body, a NEW BEGINNING of NEW LIFE and DEVINE HEALING in Jesus name. We declare every assignment set up against us null and void, that ONLY the perfect and complete will of God be performed and evident in our bodies and lives from THIS day forward in Jesus name. We declare a new and abundant outpouring of God's blessings over the Body, the opening up of the heavens above His House and the outpouring of His covenant blessing upon His people. We declare THIS DAY is a New Beginning of all that is ordained for this new seed that is arising out of the earth, this new seed of this new man Christ Jesus that is coming forth out of the earth in this hour. Amen and Amen!
Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable Your servants to speak Your word with great boldness. Stretch out Your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of Your holy servant Jesus. After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. (Acts 4:29-31)
July 26, 2008 - A New Seed Arising
There is a new seed arising from the earth, a seed that is the full embodiment of the man Christ Jesus, a seed that contains the power, the authority, the compassion and the humility of all that is in Christ. It's that seed that's fallen to the ground and has died and now is breaking through the mountain of earth in this world's oppression and containment and is bearing much fruit. This seed has been hidden underground and has germinated through the death and life cycles of its divine purpose and now is sprouting up and breaking through to its divine destiny. The life and power in this seed is so great that there is no mountain of earth, no obstacle too big that can or will hold it back.
This seed IS coming forth. This seed IS bringing the LIFE of Christ into this world. This seed IS making an impact and doing great exploits. This seed has conquered and moved the mountain of impossibility that has tried to keep it down in this earth's realm of the ordinary and the impossible and has tried to stop any LIFE of the miraculous and supernatural. The divine power in this seed is proving that it cannot and will not be constrained and contained forever but uses that constraint to grow and germinate and draw from its inner LIFE source to push through any mountain of impossibility that stands in its way.
This seed is the new man Christ Jesus, and He is moving mountains of impossibility to reveal Himself. Let this seed of this new man arise in you and in me and let's see mountains move in Jesus name.
July 11, 2008 - Heaven Is Invading Earth!
Heaven is invading earth!
The power of the living God is arising within and among us.
Visions that have been birthed and carried in the spirit for years are getting arms and legs and flesh on them.
Great exploits are about to be done by those that have known their God, that have stood, and that, having done all to stand, have remained standing. God is answering in the day of trouble and releasing power from on high, responding to the cry, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." He is sending help from the sanctuary. He is remembering our offerings, and He is granting us our hearts desire to those who will believe and keep their eyes and heart and focus on Him. He is coming with power to avenge His Beloved. He is empowering her to arise and do great exploits for His glory. Debt, lack, poverty, sickness, disease and afflictions are being crushed and destroyed, and His Beloved is arising in her authority and compassion and releasing the power of life, healing and Kingdom wealth that lies within her. Truly the Kingdom of heaven is invading earth, and it's coming through the Spirit of the living God through the corporate body of believers in His Zion places.
Receive and step into this Kingdom hour with renewed faith and expectation, and you will surely see what you have never seen before. Glory!
July 7, 2008 - Zion - "The Land of Goshen"
"For God has chosen Zion." (Ps 132:13)
As the economy falls and fails and things continue to tighten financially, and stress and oppress the people, God's glory arises in His "Zion places". It's in these houses of God where His presence truly dwells that Jesus will stand and manifest Himself in all His glory during these dark and difficult days, drawing all men to Himself.
God said He loves these Zion places. "The Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwelling places of Jacob." (Ps 87:2) He said, "For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her needy with bread." (Ps 132:13-15)
God promises to "abundantly bless" the provision of these Zion places, and satisfy the needy with bread - with food and provision for the body, soul and spirit. Zion was the hill where David brought and placed the arc of the covenant, the very presence of God, and opened the veil for all to see and experience His presence. It was God's favorite place, the place where HE was favorite, the place where God-lovers and God-seekers gathered to love and worship Him. It was a "Goshen place" - "the best of the land" ,where all were blessed and all were fed and prospered even during the time of famine. (Genesis 47) This is what the church of the living God must be today.
God wants to make His house a "Goshen place", a place that is blessed and prospering even during times of famine. We must learn to put God first and not man, and create houses where worship and prayer are the focus, where His presence is invited, nurtured and drawn upon. Jesus said, "My house shall be called a house of prayer." (Matt 21:13) It's in His presence that we are changed into His very image. It's in His presence that we grow to know Him and hear His voice so that we can fulfill our purpose and satisfy our soul.
God's looking in this last hour for Zion places where He can manifest His presence and abundantly bless the provision of His people. Let God arise in Zion!!
July 2, 2008 - I AM Their Safety
The Lord said, "As you have prayed, 'Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven', now I will arise within you and among you as The Redeemer, The Deliverer, The Healer.
'For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise,' says the Lord. 'I will set them in the safety for which they have yearned.'
"I am their safety," says the Lord.
"And their safety is in Me. Their safety is in the cleft of the rock. There I will place them, and let My goodness and My glory pass before them. There they will find safety and security. There they will find the intimacy and security of My protection and provision. There I will speak to them and reveal Myself to them."
June 24, 2008 - Prophesy to Your Spiritman
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise, (The Redeemer, The Deliverer, The Healer).
I will set him in the safety for which he has yearned."
The sick, the poor, the needy need us, they need Christ in us.
Prophesy to your spiritman.
Body of Christ - begin to speak and prophesy to your spiritman, "Arise! Arise! Arise! Redeemer arise! Deliverer arise! Healer arise!"
God is ready to respond to our cry of unity, "Arise!"
Christ must be alive and resurrected in us before we can call forth His life in others. So, speak and prophesy to your spiritman, "Arise!"
Be strengthened in the Lord and in the power of His might. Take authority over your circumstances and call your spiritman forth out of the ashes and into your purpose and destiny. "Arise Spirit of the living God! Arise in me, arise! Redeemer arise! Deliverer arise! Healer arise!"
It's no longer you that live but Christ that lives in you, and the Spirit of Christ says,"Arise!"
"Prosperity arise! Abundance arise! Wealth arise! Health arise! Wisdom arise! Strength arise! Wholeness arise! Boldness arise!
There IS a cause. There is a KINGDOM cause! So Arise! Arise to your destiny! Arise in the Spirit of the living God! Arise!
June 19, 2008 - "My House is Crippled"
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise, (The Redeemer, The Deliverer, The Healer).
I will set him in the safety for which he has yearned."
The Lord said, "My house is crippled and out of order in their finances. I am releasing My grace to bring healing and health and strength to this area. My house will be debt-free and financially sound, generously giving to those in need. When people come into My house from being out in the world they will receive forgiveness and healing for their finances. They will receive mercy, instruction and wisdom in the way that My kingdom operates. Their lives will completely turn around when they give it all to Me. They will learn a new way of thinking and living, because My Kingdom operates on opposite principles from the world. I am drawing them into My house and freeing them from the entanglements of the world, from idolatry, materialism and greed. I am putting My heart into them and revealing My will to them. I am redeeming them back to their kingdom purpose and destiny.
My house will be a glorious house. It will be healthy both physically and financially, and the world will know that I am alive and living in My people and in My house."
"Judgment begins in the house of the Lord."
We must examine ourselves, our hearts, our motives, our habits, and our behaviors. Are we Kingdom people living for the King and the Kingdom?
As we truly begin to seek the King and the Kingdom first we will begin to get a kingdom mindset, and our motives, thoughts and actions will be directed in that way.
June 4, 2008 - "Now I Will Arise"
"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
Now I will arise" says the Lord.
"I will set him in the safety for which he yearns."
March 24, 2008 - "Let God ARISE!"
Let God ARISE! And let His enemies be scattered!
Let God arise and let the righteous be glad, let them all rejoice with gladness, God has triumphed mightily!
Watch this video (have your sound on)
(2 Chronicles 20: 21,22)
Jehoshaphat sent the praisers and worshipers in holy attire out before the army in battle, and when he did this the Lord set an ambush against their enemies and they defeated themselves. Praise God!
We ARE the praisers, Lord! We ARE the worshipers! We send out those in holy attire before us today to express our worship and our praise. We declare You, Lord and King! Jesus, the Lord of lords and the King of kings! We declare You victorious and triumphant against our enemies! We declare our enemies ambushed and defeated; our fears, doubts and unbeliefs turned into FAITH! our lack, debt and poverty turned into PROSPERITY!, our sickness and disease turned into HEALTH! our addictions turned into GOD PASSIONS!
We are victorious! God has defeated our enemies!
Let God ARISE and let our enemies be scattered! God has triumphed mightily! Hallelujiah!! Hallelujiah!! \o/
March 28, 2008 - "Go Running and Leaping and Praising God!"
"Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, rise up and walk. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them--walking, leaping and praising God." (Acts 3:6,8)
I just wanted to share something with you that the Lord ministered to me yesterday. There is a young man, a son of some dear friends of mine, that I have been praying for that has suffered some brain injuries from a motorcycle accident recently. Standing in the gap and believing for his total and complete healing, I was speaking to his spirit man in the car on my way to work yesterday, declaring out loud, "John, wake up! Open your eyes! Go running and leaping and praising god!" As I declared this out loud several times I began to hear God's voice speaking this same thing over us, His Body. It was like He was saying that we as Christians, as believers, have so much to be thankful for. We are carriers and vessels of the living God, and our lives should be lived out in this victory and this continual praise, running and leaping and praising God, that we needed to wake up and open our eyes and see God's hand of blessing upon our lives and run and leap and rejoice in His goodness everyday.
Then I heard the Holy Spirit say, "Now you're starting to get it."
I learned something powerful yesterday from this unfortunate situation that this young man and his family are walking through. And I just wanted to share it with you and say thank you, John and Jesus, for teaching me this. I want my life to be like that. Thank You, Jesus, for reminding me and teaching me that my life is full of YOU and should be lived out in that very testimony and evidence. Thank you, John, for presenting your life as a living sacrifice so that I may hear God's voice and know His heart. Now I release His healing power into your life, John, for a total and complete healing for the glory of God in Jesus name.
March 21, 2008 - "Sprinkler Heads in the Garden"
"Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now, He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God." (Romans 8:26,27)
The Lord was showing me in this kingdom garden that He is creating and growing that we are each like sprinkler heads that pop up and water the garden. We are "fountain heads of the anointing", and we all have our own area of the garden to touch and effect for the Kingdom of God. When we pray in the Spirit (our own heavenly prayer language an din our praise) we are releasing the living waters within us that are fed by the river of life that comes out of the throne of God. And the more we pray in the Spirit and release these living waters, watering our area of the garden, the more it puts a demand on the river of life to keep flowing from heaven and through us, and the more life and growth the garden receives and manifests. Because we have so many people that we tough in our area of influence and we don't know all that they need, the Lord has provided a gift and an avenue to pray their needs according to His perfect will. Even when we want to pray for them but don't know what to pray, He provides a way to do it. Is that not awesome?! God provides for everything in His garden.
So with your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, turn on the spout and let the living waters flow through your sprinkler head. See your area of the garden prosper and be blessed for His glory.
(Rom 8:26,27; John 7:28; Rev 22:1; Heb 12:2)
March 14, 2008 - "His Kingdom Garden"
"You shall be like a watered garden." (Isaiah 58:11)
God plants the redemptive seed of His Word and His promise in you, then He plants you and your heart, that contains His redemptive seed of promise, into a place, a home, a family, a business, a church, a neighborhood, a city. He then begins to water you until you sprout out a little and show growth. Sometimes He transplants you to another area of His garden so that you will grow better and better display His beauty and His glory.
God's planted many a Kingdom seed of promise and redemption over these years in the hearts of His people. He's done a lot of watering, transplanting, pruning and tending of His garden. The light of His Son, Jesus, has shown on us, germinated and sprouted the seeds in us, and we are starting to see sprouts and evidence of His Kingdom glory in His garden. Soon we will begin to see this kingdom garden in full bloom as the water and rain of His Spirit continues to pour on us and the light of His Son, Jesus, brings forth the growth of all His seeds of kingdom promise.
Be patient. God is planting a beautiful garden in you, and He's tending that area of His garden so that you will shine forth the magnificence of His glory to all the earth, so that that Kingdom seed of promise and redemption that He's planted in you will come to its full bloom and radiate the fullness of it's intended beauty. He IS the Master Gardner. Hallelujah.
March 11, 2008 - "His Redemptive Grace"
God is releasing His redemptive grace. Receive it and embrace it.
February 25, 2008 - "Bring the Whole Tithe"
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house......(Malachi 3:10)
For the last several weeks, in obedience to the prompting of the Lord, rising early in the morning, I began to tithe the first 2 1/2 hours of my day to the Lord in prayer, the first 10% of my day. Every since I was born again and learned the command and principle of tithing in Malachi 3:10 I have always tithed my finances and given to the Lord. Even during times of temptation, when it was a real stretch to be obedient to that, the Lord has blessed me with the grace, faith and strength to resist temptation and remain faithful to His command. And as a result He has always met my families needs and taken us through every trial and test and brought us out on the other side with a testimony of victory.
But now the Lord was speaking to me through this tithing principle in a new way with a new challenge, a challenge I wanted to share with you as the Body of Christ and as brothers and sisters in the Lord. Because yielding to it has given me a deeper and richer and more fruitful prayertime, I am able to look with greater expectancy for the promise of the open heaven, the outpouring of His blessing, and the harvest of the seeds that have been sown through the years, and I have felt compelled to share this blessing with you as well.
It was several weeks ago during one of our services the Lord spoke to me to begin to bring the whole tithe of my day to Him in prayer. And as I began to do this He began to speak to me and show me that many times, even as God's people, it's easier to give Him our money than it is to give Him our time. He was showing me how tithing can become a religious act, something that is just committed to and budgeted in, but never really given in worship and soaked in prayer. He showed me that time was our greatest asset. Time represented life, the very life and breath that He had given us, but that many times we weren't willing to give Him or to give up our times as easily as we gave Him our money. In our society time represents money, and in our desire to improve our lifestyle or sometimes to just keep our head above water, we put more importance or weight in giving our time to working or to "doing" rather than to God in prayer. And as a result our prayerlife and intimate relationship with the Lord is lost or molded into little pockets of time in prayer throughout the day. God is never given the full time and place of priority that He is due or worthy of. We think we are putting Him first in our lives, but when challenged to give up something pleasurable, or even in our own thinking, more necessary (like our sleep) we say, "I can't do that".
The Lord is wanting our whole heart, and if you choose to take this challenge with me to tithe your day to the Lord in prayer know that when you yield to it and give the first 10%, that first 2 1/2 hours of your day to the Lord, that you will feel and experience Him blessing not only that time of prayer, but also blessing and multiplying the remaining 90% of your day more than you have even experienced His blessing in your day before. You will be bringing to Him your most valuable asses, your time, the first tenth of the very life He gave you, the very first breaths and thoughts and words you have been given by Him as they are offered back to Him as a sacrifice in thanksgiving for the victory and blessing of another day of life in Him. You will then be bringing the whole tithe into the storehouse so that there would be food in His house, and you can surely then test Him in this that He will open up the windows of heaven and pour out on you, and on us, the blessing that there is not room enough to receive it, and He will surely rebuke the devour for your sake and for His glory.
Lord, we bring our whole tithe, the tithe of our money and the tithe of our time to You in prayer. We thank You that You are drawing us into prayer, into an intimate and personal relationship with You so that You may show us great and mighty things that we do not know. We thank You, Lord, that our first ministry is to You, and we bring the first of all that we have and and all that we are to You as a thank offering and as a sign of our dependence on You and as a sign of our need for Your blessing on the remaining 90% of our money as well as our time - that it will ALL be blessed. And we pray this in Your name Jesus. Amen
February 8, 2008 - "The Anointing to Bless"
"I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing." (Genesis 12:2b)
As children of God, as joint heirs with Christ, as descendants of Abraham we receive the blessing of Abraham upon our lives, the anointing to bless so that we may be a blessing. We receive and draw upon this anointing that is being poured out over the head of this corporate Body. And with this gift and with our hands we release and transfer this blessing of Abraham to others as well, applying the blood of Jesus to their lives, breaking the power and curse of sin upon their lives, and releasing the inheritance and blessing of Abraham upon them. And in thanksgiving we bring in the plunder and the spoil of the victory into the house of God and lay it before the Father as a thank offering to him in thanksgiving and in gratitude for the victory and for our appreciation for the sanctuary.
You, Father, have given us the victory and this anointing, and everything we have has come from You. We bring our spoil, our tithe, our offering to You in thanksgiving that it may bless Your house and Your people, that the world would see the increase and prosperity of Your kingdom in its victory over the spirit of this world. We bring the wealth of the wicked into the storehouse and transfer it to the righteous as Your blessing falls on and follows us as Your covenant children. We bring it in and lay it at Your feet, Father, that it may be sanctified and made holy by Your presence and Your anointing.
And through this anointing-to-bless we open and release the floodgates to begin to open into the house of God. We pull in the spoil and plunder from the victories over the spirit of this world and channel and pour them into the house of God. We declare that the world will begin to turn their head and look on in amazement as they see the increase and flow of the blessing coming out of the house of God, being a sign and a wonder to them of a house and a people that serves a living and true God. We release this anointing-to-bless to turn their hearts from the things of this world and turn them to the living and true God asa they see the love being poured out from Him and from His people towards one another. We declare that this love and blessing will draw them into the house to be touched and to have a personal encounter with You, Father, as they recieve You into their hearts stepping out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of light. So, open up the windows of heaven, Father. Pour out Your blessing until there's not room enough to receive it. Rebuke the devour for our sake and for Your glory. Amen
February 6, 2008 - "There's a Shifting Taking Place"
"For He who has compassion on them will lead them, and will guide them to springs of water." (Isaiah 49:10b)
The other day as I watched and listened to the news, absorbing all that was taking place just on that given day, the Lord began to download something into my spirit, something that the spirit and gift of faith within me began to reveal and encourage me with.
The Holy Spirit began to witness to me that as the world become darker, as wars continued to break out in new countries weekly as it seemed , and the financial market continued to weaken and take a downward spiral and tailspin, the people's security deposits and investments would be shaken and begin to collapse. But He showed me in the middle of all this that the Church was going to begin to shine against the darkness. The Church was going to begin to arise, growing in strength and power with signs and wonders and miracles being performed in its midst in the houses of true believers. The kingdom of God was going to arise from a unified Church that was seeking His kingdom first, and the people would be making new choices to invest their finances in the kingdom of god because their faith had been completely shaken in the world's economy and was now rising and turning to the kingdom of God's economy. He showed me that a spirit of benevolence and giving was going to be released and arise in the people's hearts which would release a fresh flow of kingdom finances that had been stopped up through the past years. He showed me that the vice and squeeze of the fall in the world's economic system was actually squeezing out a gift of compassion and benevolence out of the hearts of God's people, and that it was God's saving grace that was being released on His people, a grace of giving and benevolence, a grace that was going to draw the harvest through mercy and compassion.
O, I praise God, for I see a great shifting in the financial realm, not only a shifting and transference of wealth from the wicked to the righteous, but a shift of large investments of the righteous out of this world's financial institutions and into the Kingdom of God, into the lives of God's people through the Church, the very house of the living God. I see people who know their God and who understand and live by god's principles of seed sowing, of planting in faith and reaping a multiplied harvest. I see people who are fed up with the world's instability and manipulation and are ready to step out in faith and in love and in a heart of gratitude to their heavenly Father and begin to show their heart and their faith by investing in His Kingdom, His house and His family. I see the favor and countenance of the Lord Jesus shining upon His Bride, the Church, in this hour in a great and powerful way. I see Him unleashing great favor over her in a holy jealousy as He vindicates His Bride and reveals His power and glory through her. O, I see a shift in the hearts and minds of God's people, a shift that has been brought about by an outpouring of divine revelation and impartation and that has brought forth a whole new Kingdom mindset and perspective. And I see the harvest running to the churches as this Kingdom mindset takes hold and is lived out and manifested through the lives of god's people and becomes a way of living for them.
O I praise god for the Holy Spirit, for the spirit and gift of faith that He has given me to know His heart and to see through His eyes. It is truly kingdom time. The world's shaking will be the kingdom's harvest. Glory!
January 12, 2008 - "Prepare Your Heart to Receive"
"Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand." (Matt 3:2)
Prepare your heart to receive the blessing of God, for angels are being released and sent forth on assignment with the blessing of God, with the plunder and spoil of David, the wealth of the wicked that's been won in battle and brought forth into the kingdom of God for this very hour. There are angels on assignment to deliver God's blessings to those whose hearts have been turned towards Him, whose hearts are surrendered and aligned with His, whose hearts have been crucified to the passions of this world and who have set their passions on knowing and seeking Him and His Kingdom first.
As a people of God we must search our hearts and repent of giving our affections to the things of this world, for setting up idols, those things that have stood in the way of knowing and seeking God first, for knowing more about what's going on in Hollywood that we know about the kingdom of God. We must repent and turn our hearts to the things of God, and realign our hearts, our minds and our passions with His. It is a God-hour for His Church, because He is coming with power and with His glory. And we must be ready.
Repentance makes room for the grace of His blessing and glory. Let's make room for that grace.
January 10, 2008 - "Angels On Assignment"
"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Matt 6:10)
I thank You, Father, for the authority You've given me in Christ to crush the head of the devil through the blood, the authority and the name of Jesus.
Christ in me crushes the head of the devil, the head of lack and debt that has held and bound the Bride of Christ. I crush its head and break its back and its power, and I release the blessing of God, the blessing of Abraham, and the inheritance that is hers in Christ Jesus. I draw from and put a demand on that inheritance that is hers in Christ Jesus. I draw from that inheritance and from the wealth of the wicked that's been laid up for her as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I pull down and draw from this inheritance, and release and dispatch angels on assignment to go and deliver the blessings to the people in the spirit of mercy and in the glory of Your grace in Jesus name, so that Your Kingdom, Father, may be done here on earth as it is in heaven. Amen
January 3, 2008 - "This Meteor Has Landed"
"The kingdom of God suffers violence, and the violent take it by force" (Matt 11:12)
I take my position in Christ, seated with Him at the right hand of the Father far above every rule and authority and every power and dominion and every name that is named. And in the authority and power that has been given to me, I stand on and crush the head of Satan. I crush the head of poverty, lack, and debt. I break its back, and I declare its power inoperable, null and void. I declare that it will no longer function in the Body and Bride of Christ and in the Church of the living God.
I draw on and release prosperity and abundance into the Body, blessings and favor, health and wealth. I draw and release the wealth of the wicked that's been laid up for the righteous and the just. I draw on and release a financial inheritance through the lotteries into the kingdom of God and through His people, into the hands of givers and tithers and those that have Kingdom hearts and Kingdom vision. I take hold of that financial inheritance that has been predestined for us for this good work that God has prepared beforehand that we should walk in, and I release it into the Body and Bride of Christ in Jesus name. I declare that the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He is glorified through this release. I stand in victory over this assignment, and declare that His mission has been set in motion and is operating to His glory in Jesus name.
This meteor has landed. The head of poverty, lack, and debt has been crushed.
One small step for God. One giant victory for God's people.
December 14, 2007 - "A Meteor Shower from Heaven!"
Heaven invading earth!
"The Kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force." "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John; since then the gospel of the Kingdom of God is preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it." (Matt11:12, Luke 16:16) All these Words were rolling over in my spirit this morning as I was drawing from "the riches of His glory", drawing from that glory realm that is real and that has been revealed by the Spirit of God to me and to those that seek Him with all their heart. It's the realm that we were born for, the kingdom realm, the God realm, the supernatural realm that we must believe and receive and draw from to bring heaven down to earth. "The Kingdom come, Thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven."
As I was meditating on these scriptures and drawing in prayer from "the riches of His glory", those riches that I know are ours in Christ, the Lord showed me a huge meteor shower that was coming down from heaven into the earth. There were thousands of smaller meteors that were falling. He told me that these were heavenly meteors of divine revelation of His glory, and they were falling and being drawn by individuals that were asking and passionately drawing on them by their prayers from this glory realm that He had revealed to them. Then I saw other huge meteors, much bigger ones, that He told me were "corporate meteors", meteors of divine revelation that were headed to whole churches where the corporate body was focused and drawing from this glory realm. He revealed to me that their prayers were like huge magnets that were pulling on the glory and forcing it down out of heaven into the earths atmosphere. Then I saw as these meteors were hitting the earths atmosphere, there was great fire that was being ignited and streaming from the back of them as these heavenly meteors of divine glory and revelation blazed their trail through the atmosphere of the soulish realm, meeting its resistance which was causing the friction and fire. But even with this resistance, the consistent and passionate prayers of the saints and the churches continued to draw and pull the meteors of revelation past the earth's soulish realm and atmosphere until they finally began to hit earth, landing and manifesting themselves. Then I saw meteors all over the earth lying in these craters that they had made by their impact. These craters were evidence of the power of these meteors of revelation and evidence of how they had crushed and dispersed earth's resistance; its religion, its fear, doubt and unbelief, its materialism and idolatry. And now the manifestation of "the riches of His glory" had come to earth and impacted the whole world. Glory! Hallelujah!!
Wow! I was excited and impressed by what was coming as a result of our prayers! It's there, and it's ours for the taking and the drawing. The Lord was showing me that these Words of "taking the kingdom by force" and "the Kingdom of God is preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it" was being manifested, because the Body of Christ was coming to a place of knowing who they are in Christ and what is theirs in the kingdom, and they wanted it. We are becoming corporately focused on drawing that kingdom inheritance into the earth just as Jesus told us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, They will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven". The Church is getting free from building their own churches, ministries and kingdoms and are coming into unity, praying and drawing on the same thing, and it was shaking the heavens and causing it to respond and manifest in the earth. Wow, we are in for something huge! Keep praying and keep drawing from the riches of His glory. He is hearing our prayers and sending it. It's blazing its way through the atmosphere of our own soul and mind and coming in response to our focused faith and united prayers. Glory!!
December 10, 2007 - "The Arm of the Lord"
"Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
When this scripture was read yesterday morning in service and this question was asked, I wanted to raise my hand in the air like the kid in the classroom that's so excited cuz he's got the answer, and say, "I've seen it! I've seen it! It's been revealed to me! Let me tell!! Let me tell!!
Because I had seen the arm of the Lord in the Spirit before. I've seen it make a full sweep from left to right across the whole congregation, wiping out, and with one full sweep across the table, clearing away all debt and lack in the House of God and in this sanctuary of His manifested presence. The Lord let me see this one day, because I believe it's His heart and plan. He shows and reveals His secrets to those who seek Him with all their hearts.
So "anchoring myself in the unseen realm", I remain focused on this picture and vision of the arm of the Lord. He manifests Himself to destroy the work of the devil, to destroy the strategies and attempts of the devil to steal, rob and distract His Body and Bride. He's our Jehovah Jirah, our Provider. And there is NOTHING that He can't and won't do for us if we will only believe. He reveals, and then we believe. That's the way faith works. We just believe for what He has already revealed. We don't have to make it happen, He will take us to it and navigate us through the circumstances as we keep our eyes on Him, our Jehovah Jirah.
So, will we give Him the desire of His heart? Will we believe Him for what He has revealed to us even when the circumstances are contrary to it? Will we remain focused on Him through the storm and the desert of the wilderness? Will we believe the message that He has paid it all, that He took our infirmities, our sickness, our disease, and our lack and carried it away, that His sacrifice was more than enough?
First we believe, then we receive.
December 7, 2007 - "For This Purpose"
"Jesus, the Son of god, the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, is manifesting Himself to bless us, to bless and reveal Himself, and to destroy the work of the evil one, the devil.
God is showing up and showing off! Jesus is vindicating His Bride and manifesting His power in signs, wonders and miracles. And in response to our faith, our passionate pursuit and our unrelenting prayers, He is filling His house with His presence and power, and asking us, "What is it that you want? What is it that you need and desire?", because He is ready to answer. The Holy Spirit now has an atmosphere to freely move and manifest Himself in, and He is eager to bless, to be believed, so that He may give in response to that focused and unshakeable faith.
O, what an exciting time we are stepping into! Draw on the anointing. Earnestly desire and seek the greater gifts, the power gifts of faith, the gift of healing, and working of miracles. God's Word tells us to earnestly desire them. He is wanting to answer that prayer and passion. He is wanting to meet us there and perform that Word. Draw and desire them. Put a demand on the anointing to come and manifest through these gifts. When we do this, we will see God manifest Himself even greater, destroying the work of the devil, destroying the doubt and unbelief, destroying sickness, disease, blindness, and every crippling and defeating work of the devil. Lack and poverty will go as the Kingdom of God manifests and releases itself into the House, and the Glory will repel all darkness and lack. Fullness and abundance, health and wealth will manifest and take its place in God's people once again. Glory! Hallelujah! Come Lord Jesus, come! Praise to the King!
December 4, 2007 - "There Is A Realm"
There is a realm. There IS a realm!
And it's a realm of Kingdom living, a realm of Kingdom power and authority, a realm of Kingdom health and wealth, a realm of Kingdom wisdom, insight and understanding. And God is taking us into it. With hearts turned to heaven, setting our eyes on things above and not things beneath, this wave of the Spirit, this Tsunami wave of grace that's coming out of the throneroom of heaven, leveling mountains and annihilating hindrances and obstacles is sweeping into our houses and our sanctuaries, our secret places, and filling us afresh with new faith and expectation. We are beginning to expect the unexpected, to believe beyond our own understanding and our own limitations, and we're beginning to see manifestations of God's divine intervention in our lives and in our families and our churches. There is something very exciting taking place in the Church right now in those houses of God that have been hungry enough to break through the box of religion and tradition and fuel the flame of passion for the manifestation of His glory.
And with this wave there is a shifting in the spirit. It's a shifting of gears to climb higher into this new level of faith, into this new realm of God's glory. And with it is a shifting of wealth, a transference of the wealth of the wicked to the righteous, a release of divine finances into the hands of who have been faithful to seed and tithe into the Kingdom. It's a divine shift and release of Kingdom grace and favor into the lives of God's people who have been faithful to seek and pursue Him.
Our God who is faithful and who looks to and fro across the earth to find a heart and a house that is truly devoted to Him is finding those houses, those sanctuaries that have been built for Him. And He is descending with power and authority into these places and breaking through the realms of the natural and releasing the supernatural. He is showing Himself mighty through creative miracles that only the Creator and an anointing given by the Creator can do, and He is taking us into that realm of His glory that is seen and discovered only by faith. It's this faith that pleases God, and He is finding pleasure in rewarding those who are seeking diligently for Him.
There is a realm. There IS a realm! Thank You for taking us into it, Lord! Hallelujah!
November 30, 2007 - A Tsunami Wave!
O my God! For the last hour as I continued to pray the rhema Word that was just released and spoke, "Grace, grace" to my mountain, I saw that wave of great grace that was coming down the river from heaven, and it turned into a huge tidal wave, a tsunami!! It was leveling mountains, annihilating and pulverizing obstacles that had stood in the way of God's people from their purpose and destiny for years. It was a huge and powerful wave! As God's people were looking not to their own abilities, skills, talents and giftings, but were looking only to God in faith, and in their Kingdom position, were speaking His Word, "Grace, grace", He began to respond exceedingly and abundantly above all that they have asked and thought of. His love and grace had been held back long enough! He was responding to a people that had been tested, purified and purged by the fire, and they knew that there was nothing in them that could move the mountain, but they knew their God, and they were speaking His Word of "Grace, grace" to the impossible with an expectation of the possible!
My God, my God!! It's a powerful wave of grace!! Glory!!
November 30, 2007 - "Grace, Grace to the Mountain"
"What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!" (Zechariah 4:7)
Speak "Grace, grace" to your mountain!
There is a wave of great grace coming down the river right now from the throne of God, a wave of great grace to remove mountains that have stood before you for years. Draw from this grace and speak to your mountain. Speak "Grace, grace" to it! God is going to show Himself mighty to those who believe, to those who draw from His grace and to those, who will, with faith, speak "Grace, grace" to their mountain.
God's Word is "like a hammer that shatters the rick" and His Word of "grace" in this hour spoken to the mountain will shatter and remove it, bringing forth and releasing His manifested glory. Hallelujah!
And all of God's people declared, "Grace, grace"!
November 27, 2007 - "Eye Has Not Seen, Nor Ear Heard"
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit." (1 Corinthian 2:9-10)
Get ready! Look and expect.
Look with eyes of expectation to see the manifested presence and glory of God. Come with hungry hearts and an expectant spirit for our Father God, the God of all grace and glory is about to manifest and reveal Himself to His people, to the Church, and to the world in ways we have never seen, heard or even though of. But He has revealed these things by His Spirit to those that have raised and kept their spiritual antennas tuned into Him and into His mind. God is revealing them to us through the Spirit. They are things that have been prepared and ordained for His sons and daughters from the beginning of time and for those that will believe beyond their own limited understanding. They are for those that will receive them by faith and grab on to them with patient expectation. And they are for those who will be like Abraham who "did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to Do, and being fully assured that what He had promised, He was able also to perform."
God is able and will perform those things that He reveals to His people when they waver not in their faith, when they don't shrink back but when they press in through the circumstances that are contrary to it, past the words of doubt and unbelief of others, and when they look and wait with expectation for the manifested promise and glory of their faithful Father.
Get ready! He IS coming!
November 23, 2007 - "Have Faith In His Covenant"
God's grace and goodness brings a complete testimony when we rest and have faith in His covenant with us.
When we rest in the Lord and set our faith on the covenant that He's made with us, in full confidence that He is faithful and that He IS a covenant-keeping God, we will see Him bring us full circle through a cycle of growth and maturity, through a cycle of full deliverance and redemption, and with a complete and glorious testimony of His grace and goodness through His power and mercy.
God is about to reveal His glory in greater ways than we have ever imagined in the days ahead as He unfolds the faithfulness of His covenant blessing and promise to His people and to the Church. Be encouraged, we are living in an exciting time, for even as the world becomes darker, this darkness will act as a backdrop for the light of God's glory that will radiate out of the Church of the living God. And the world will see and will turn and be drawn to the light that is illuminating out of His House.
So, "Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you. And His glory will appear upon you. And nations will come to our light, and kings to the brightness of your rising." (Isaiah 60:1-3)
November 20, 2007 - "Invading Earth With His Glory"
"Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle." (Psalm 24:7,8)
He is coming, and He's fighting our battles for us, moving mountains, making the rough places smooth and the crooked ways straight. He's giving strength to the weak, health to the sick, deliverance to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind. He is a jealous God, and He's coming to vindicate His Bride, invading the earth with His glory and power and revealing Himself to those who are hungry and passionately looking for His coming.
He is coming. Yes, He is coming with waves of grace and mercy and power, a power that we've never seen or experienced before. He's about to do things our minds have only imagined. And He's depositing fresh faith in our hearts to prepare us for this glory. Lift up your head and set the eyes of your heart upon the Lord. Let Him come and reveal Himself to you in all His glory.
As we stand here on earth in the circumstances that are not in the Kingdom and that are not temporal, and we focus on the heavens that are full of that which IS in the Kingdom and that is eternal, we can place a demand on and draw from that Kingdom inheritance that is ours, those things that have been purchased and paid for by the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Kingdom and all that is in it is ours for the taking, for the receiving and the appropriating. We have the power given to us as believers to pull the Kingdom into the earth with our corporate focus and faith. Let's quit looking to what is not and begin looking to what IS. Let's narrow our focus to that which is ours as children of God, as joint heirs of Christ. Let's use our faith to draw our heavenly inheritance into the earth and into our sanctuary and see God manifest Himself before us. He is ready to respond to a united and corporate faith with a Kingdom focus and a resolve to see heaven invade earth, with a resolve to see His Kingdom come and His will done here on earth as it is in heaven.
Come King of glory! Come invade earth with all Your glory. Let it be done here on earth as it is in heaven!
November 16, 2007 - "Show Us Your Glory"
"Show me Your glory." (Exodus 32:18)
As we ascend the mountain to enter into the glory cloud of the Lord, we enter through the veil of the blood of Jesus, the veil of His grace that washes us and cleanses us of our sin for sin cannot stand in the presence of a holy God. It's this grace gift of His blood that gives us access into this place of God's presence and glory.
As we enter in, stealing away into our secret place that we may catch a glimpse of His glory and be filled and be transformed by His Spirit, we stand in awe of Him. We stand in awe of His majesty, His holiness, His radiance, and "we with unveiled faces beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory." We are like the very clothes that Jesus was searing on the Mount of Transfiguration, robes that were soiled down in the valley but that became radiant and as white as snow as He was transfigured and transformed before the three disciples, Peter, James and John. When we worship and behold the face of the Lord, we are changed. Its' a transforming work of the Spirit that takes place by us just being in His presences, coming with pure and hungry hearts, and gazing upon His glory. His glory and presence radiates out of Him and penetrates our very being and spirit, and it transforms us and illuminates through us and out of us. When we enter His presence with a heart prepared to see an receive and we ask with sincere and hungry hearts like Moses did, "Show me Your glory," He will reveal Himself to you. And when you pursue and intimate relationship with Him and you invest your life in knowing Him personally, He will take you away, like Jesus did with His three closest disciples, Peter, James and John, and He will reveal His glory to you. He will take you away, and He will reveal Himself to you and share His secrets of divine wisdom with you, and transfer His power and anointing into Your life so that you may be His instrument down in the valley, in your community, in your city and in the world.
But it takes time spent with Him, time immersed in His glory. It takes time immersed in this glory realm. There IS a realm. It's a realm of His glory and power that transforms and empowers, that imparts and anoints, that changes our lives forever, and that makes us effective instruments in His hand.
Show us Your glory, Lord. Reveal Yourself to us. Change us and transform us into Your image that we may reflect Your glory and change our cities and our nation. Show us Your glory, Lord. It's Your glory revealed to us and through us that will effect and bring change to this desperate nation and this desperate world. We ARE desperate, Lord. We are desperate for a visitation of Your glory. Come, Lord Jesus, come! We draw on this glory cloud that we experience on the mountain with You, and we pull it down with us into our cities and into our churches. Let Your glory be seen in our churches and in our cities, Lord. Let it be seen! Come, Lord Jesus, come!
November 12, 2007 - "Come Up To The Mountain"
"Come up to Me on the mountain and be there." (Exodus 24:12)
God is calling us up higher into His presence, into His glory cloud, into the place of intimate communion where we see His face and where He manifests His tangible presence. He is calling and drawing us away from our busyness, from our distractions to just BE with Him. He wants to reveal Himself to us in a personal way. He wants to communicate His heart and share His secrets with us, but most of all He just wants to reveal Himself to us that we would be changed and transformed into His very image and likeness by His glory.
There IS a glory realm that can be experienced even today, like Moses did, a glory that so impacts our life that you are never the same, a glory that so reveals and manifest God's presence that your countenance and very walk is transformed. It's not only His manifested presence, but it's His radiating power that flows out of Him and into you.
And it's this glory that we experience on the mountaintop, in His presence, in our intimate time with Him that He wants to bring down the mountain and reveal to the people, to the communities, our cities and to the world. It's this glory of His presence and His power that will transform our cities, our schools, our government offices as this glory cloud of His presence rests upon us. It's our yielding to this call and to this drawing to go up to the mountain, to experience for ourselves this very tangible, transforming presence and power of a living God that will first of all change us so that we may then be used to change our cities and nation.
God is calling individuals up the mountain, but He's also calling corporate bodies, whole congregations that are hungry for His presence, that can no longer live and be held down by the control of religiocity and tradition, but that want and are desperate for more. He's calling us up higher. And there IS more, and asa we set our eyes and hearts on Him and begin to take those steps up the mountain into the secret place of His presence, we will see and experience His glory, because He wants to reveal it even more than we want to experience it.
So, let's go together. Let's ascend to the hill of the Most High with clean hands and pure hearts, and lets enter into this glory realm of His power and presence together. Let's see what God will do in our lives, in our families, in our cities and even in our nation as we yield and enter into this drawing. Prepare your heart. "Come out from among them and be seperate and touch not the unclean thing." Sanctify yourself and your heart to enter into the presence of a holy God.
November 9, 2007 - "Reflectors of His Glory"
"For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you. And nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your glory." (Isaiah 60:2,3)
Standing in our kingdom position in Christ, clothed in His name and in His righteousness, filled with His Spirit, living and walking in the authority He's given us, we are releasers of His glory, we are mirrors that reflect the glory of the Lord. "But we all, with unveiled facebeholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."
The time we spend in the presence of the Lord, beholding His beauty, gazing upon His face, worshiping and soaking in His anointing is transforming us into His very image - we're His Body radiating His glory and manifesting His power, with eyes and hearts set on the King, immovable and unshakable from our faith adn from our covenant relationship with Jesus, the Lover of our soul. We are lovers of God, seekers of His heart, fountainheads of the anointing - we are releasers of His glory. The world sees it and knows it. The world sees the light of His favor arising upon us, and they are being drawn to this light like a magnet. And as we keep our eyes on Jesus and draw from His love and His anoiting, His light radiates out of us and penetrates the darkness.
So, "arise, shine for the light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen up you." It IS rising up us. It IS penetrating the darkness, and we ARE reflectors and releasers of His glory. The Kingdom of heaven is at hand! Release His glory! Be His conduit, speak the truth, declare His Word, be that fountainhead of the anointing that releases the river of life. Let the glory be released and the "knowledge of His glory cover the earth like the waters cover the seas." Hallelujia!
Lord, as reflectors and releasers of Your glory, we reach our hands out to the world, and we release Your power and Your anointing to break the yokes of bondage that have kept Your people from knowing and walking in who they are in Christ. We redeem them back into their kingdom position and inheritance. We release Your redemptive grace into their hearts that they may see and know themselves as Your children, as joint heirs to the kingdom, that they may step into a new beginning and into their new identity in You. We release the power of Your name, the name of Jesus that causes every knee to bow and every tongue to confess that You are Lord. We release Your glory, Lord, across the whole earth, that the knowledge of Your glory may cover the earth like the waters cover the seas. Amen and amen
November 5, 2007 - Pluck up, Break down, Destroy, Overthrow, Build & Plant
"See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant." (Jeremiah 1:10)
As we contend for the faith, "the faith that was once and for all given to the saints"s the faith that was seen and manifested in our forfathers of faith, those men and women of faith that birthed the healing revivals that we're so familiar with in recent centuries, that turned impacted whole cities and changed nations. As we contend for that faith, we stand on the shoulders of these men and women of faith and we go "from faith to faith" and we reach out for even greater levels of faith and even greater manifestations. And when we do this we "rebuild the ancient ruins", we "raise up the age-old foundations". It's ours for the taking. It's ours for the believing and for the contending. It's ours for the recovering and the rebuilding.
But to do this first we need to repent. Before we can take back and rebuild we need to recognize and repent for the doubt and unbelief that we have allowed in our lives to overshadow our faith. We need to identify these things, and ask forgiveness for the tradition and religion that we have fallen into. We need to repent of our prayerlessness, our complacency, and our lack of passionate pursuit of the call and destiny upon our lives and upon the Church. Jesus is not coming back for a divided, powerless, religious Church, but one that is united, passionate and full of power and purpose, focused on knowing Hima nd manifesting His glory.
So, Lord, individually and corporately, as an individual and as a Body, we repent. We ask forgiveness for our doubt and our unbelief, for our fear and lack of trust. We ask forgiveness of our prayerlessness, for letting our faith grow stale and turn into a religious act of tradition and powerlessness. Forgive us, Lord. We recognize and identify these things in our lives and in our churches and we repent and ask forgiveness. Lore, we thank You that You are a God of mercy and grace, and as we do this, we receive Your grace gift of forgiveness when we repent, Your grace and mercy upon our lives, Your love that covers a multitude of sins, and Your love that never fails. We receive that love, and that mercy and grace, and we begin to rebuild the foundations of faith that brought about past revivals through manifested healings and miracles. We receive the authority You've given us as children of God, and we take our position in Christ, seated with You at the right hand of the Father, and we pluck up and we break down those roots of doubt and unbelief, those strongholds of fear and anxiety and lack of trust. We destroy and overthrow the prayerlessness and complacency that we've allowed in, and we build and we plant new faith, new faith that is fresh that exceeds our understanding and our own limited intellect. We plant courage and confidence, truth and boldness to speak Your Word and declare the truth in the midst of adverse circumstances. We rise up from our place of weakness and doubt, and we stand on Your Words of faith and truth, words that declare that with man things are impossible but with God NOTHING is impossible, that with God the Mission IS
Possible! We stand in faith and we receive a fresh infilling of Your Holy Spirit in our lives, a fresh anointing to empower us into this new place of manifesting Your glory, and we take those opportunities that You give us to lay hands on the sick, and we speak healing and health into their bodies. We take those opportunitites to give, to be generous, to meet a need and plant a seed. We submit our lives and wills to You so that Your power may flow through us and be manifested in whatever way You desire.
Heavenly Father, we love You and praise You, we exalt and magnify You, we give You all glory and all honor as we take our position in Christ at Your right hand, and we call heaven down to earth. We take the authority that You've given us and we open the window of heaven, and we speak and release into this earth all that is in heaven, all the divine health and wealth, al the praise and glory, all the life and love that is found in Your very presence. We release into thise earth fresh faith and fresh passion, a fresh appitite for the things of God. We release boldness and confidcnce and a new awareness of kingdom position and Kingdom inheritance into Your people. We declare, Lord, Your kingdom come and Your will be done here on this earth as it is in heaven, here in our churches, here in our lives and in our families, just as it is in heaven. We contend for the faith, Father. We stand on the wall, and we will not be moved until we see Your manifested glory here on earth as it is in heaven. Amen and amen
October 31, 2007 - "I Have Given You The Land"
"Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon I have given to you." (Joshua 1:3)
Kingdom authority - walking in the daily acknowledgement of who we are and whose we are. We are children of God, joint heirs of Christ with a direct bloodline to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the One that's given us authority to take possession of the very land we walk on.
As you go about your day taking care of your daily responsibilities at home, at work or in the marketplace, let this Word rise up in your spirit and take possession of that piece of property for the Kingdom of God. In the authority that is yours through the name of Jesus stake your claim on that land, that office building, that supermarket, and bind any unclean or perverse spirit and then loose life and blessing into that establishement. Pray in the Spirit, in your heavenly prayer language, releasing the perfect will of God over that place. As Kingdom people we are called to walk in that awareness of our position and authority and activate and appropriate it through our prayers, staying in constant communion with the One tha thas given us His name and the authority that goes with that name. It's a discipline, but as we purpose to do this, it becomes second nature and we find we are walking our day out in a whole new level and accomplishing Kingdom business while we are at it.
Let's rise up in our spirit and take possession of the land, our cities and those things that have been stolen from us and from the Kingdom. Let's lock arms in the spirit and move forward together.
October 29, 2007 - "The Malachi Miracle"
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this," says the Lord of hosts, "if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you such blessing that there is not room enough to receive it."
I KNOW that I have an inheritance that has been predestined for me for this good work that God has prepared beforehand that I should walk in. It's Kingdom time, and I don't know about you, but I am looking with expectancy for my Malachi miracle. And I can and do expect this because of the faithfulness of God and His Word, and because I can stand in His grace and on my choice of faithful obedience to that Word.
Over the years I have tested and proved God time and time again with this Word, and He ahs been faithful to meet me and my family's needs in many and varied ways throughout the years and to rebuke, as He said He wold do, the devour for our sake. But I know there is still more. I know that He's promised to open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon me that there's not room enough to receive it. And it's in this part of the fullness of this promise that I wait patiently and look iwth expectancy as He prepares me and His Church for the end time Kingdom transference of wealth. There is much to be done in the Kingdom in this last hour, and it's going to take Kingdom wealth and Kingdom generosity to do it, but it starts with our faithfl sowing and our faithful obedience during the time of seed sowing. When we're faithful to sow and water our seed in prayer, we can look with expectancy for the growth and maturity of those seeds in our garden or in our field, and then we'll be able to reap the harvest of it and enjoy the fullness and beauty of its design and purpose. So with faith I draw upon this promise and look with expectancy. I AM expecting! and pregnant with His promise! Hallelujiah!
Are you able to look with expectancy for your Malachi miracle? If not, you can always start sowing towards it today. It takes faith, but the righteous live by faith, and faith pleases God, and without faith it's impossible to please Him. So step out in faith, be a God-pleaser and obey His Word so you can look with expectancy for your Malich miracle. God is faithful....will you be?
Know that for us to stand in our position of authority in the Kingdom and to BE and DO those things that God is calling us to be and do in this last hour, our obedience to His Word is perimont. Miracles will come from obedience. The first miracle of many that Jesus performed was at the wedding of Cana when He changed the water into wine. In setting the stage for that miracle Mary told the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it."
October 27, 2007 - "Pursue, Overtake and Recover All"
"Have faith in God." (Mark 11:22)
It's not faith in our faith, it's faith in God. This faith in God is the faith that continues to lead us forward, "forgetting what lies behind and pressing forward to what lies ahead", we "press toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus".
When God gives you a call, an assignment, you can do nothing but follow that call. No matter what the cost, no matter waht it takes, you do nothing but follow it. Oh, you may try or veer from this call for a season, but God's love, call and purpose on your life will constantly pull and draw you back. And when it does.....have faith in God.
He has something He wants to say and do through you. He wants to use you in His big plan of recovery and redemption of this world and of His people.
Here's what He's given to me, and I can't get away from it. I have to follow it, and I have to share it with you.
Have faith in God.
October 26, 2007 - "This Treasure in Earthen Vessel"
"We have this treasure in earthen vessel". (2 Corinthians 4:7)
We are rich with the treasure that we are carrying within us, the treasure of Jesus Christ the Anointed One, the One that heals, the One that brings life to that which has died, the One that opens blind eyes and deaf ears, the One that restores and makes new, the One that gives fresh new beginnings to the hopeless and the defeated.
We are rich - and we are debtors, debtors to the world and to humanity, to share this wealth and this tresure that we are carrying, to give out of this deposit of rich grace that has been deposited in us. We owe the world something. If we don't tell them thatn we have a debt that we haven't paid. It's time to pay our debt. It's time to share our wealth and to give out from our treasure. It's time to open the floodgates and release that which is in us, to release the presence and anointing of the living Jesus that abides and is living in each one of us. The corporate faith and anointing from His presence in the sanctuary will multiply and increase when we begin to give it away, when we begin to share it with others outside of the walls of our House.
Let's pay our debt. Let's give out of our treasure. Let's share Jesus with the world and with our city. The Spirit of the Lord is upon us for He has anointed us to do this, and "lo, He will be with us always, even to the ends of the age." Hallalujiah!
We say, "Yes, Lord." We will go. We will pay this debt that we owe to the world. We will give out of the wealth of this treasure that we carry in You. As you have blessed us, we will be a blessing. We will share this treasure that we carry in earthn vessels so that Your glory may be seen and revealed to all the earth. Amen and amen
October 25, 2007 - "Make Disciples of All Nations!"
"All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I command you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matt 28: 18-20)
In this new stirring of the spirit of evangelism and in this out pouring of fresh faith and kingdom authority, recognize that as born again believers, that we are all alive IN Christ, and that it's no longer we that live, but it's Christ that lives in us. And now in this hour Jesus is reminding and encouraging us that all authority (all power of rule) has been given us, in and through Him, and by HIs Spirit He's calling us to go forth and make disciples of all nations, being confident that He is with us always.
Be encouraged that just like Jesus, He knew who He was and what His assignment was from the Father, He did it in faith and in confidence in that relationship He had with His Fther. Our testimony and discipling comes from our personal relationship and experiences with our Father and our Lord Jesus. Know that not all will receive completely what you have to offer them, but even Jesus, when He went to the cross in HIs obedience, and was raised from the dead, and stood before His disciples, the ones that had been following Him throughout His ministry, when He was about to give them their assignment of the great commission, He faced some diciples in their unbelief. They all saw Him and worshiped Him, but still some "were doubtful" (Matt 28:27). There will always be doubters.
But be encouraged, when you step out into your ministry of sharing Chirst, it's not about what others think or believer, there will always be those that don't believe or are "doubtful", but what matters is what you believe, that you go forward in faith and in confidence in your relationship iwth the Father through His Son Jesus, who is alive and living in you through the Holy Spirit. What matters is that you know who you are and whose you are, and that you are obedient to deliver and function in the vision and the assignment, the call and gift taht has been given to youk and that you step out in faith in t he opportunities that He gives you to share your faith, and then that you let the Holy Spirit have His freedom to do the rest and complete His work. Don't try to control it or make it happen, just flow in the Spirit. "It's not by might nor by power but it's by My Spirit", says the Lord."
Those that embrace the fullness of what was accomlished at the cross and recieve the full revelation of who Jesus is in them will experience, like Peter and John, in the book of Acts, the signs, wonders and miracles that Jesus worked through them. They will be vessels that God will use in these last days to manifest His power and authority through. Jesus encourages us here in this Word that "lo, I will be with you always." Know that when we are obedient to the call and commission, He promises to be with us in that power and authority that is His and that now He has given to us.
So go forth, stir up the spirit of evangelism! Make disciples of all nations for lo, He will be with you always!! Glory!

October 23, 2007 - Stirring up the spirit of Evangelism!
It's been placed in each of us for this Kingdom hour, but the anointing for it gets poured out over the head and then goes down over the beard and then through the body. So pray especially for this evangelistic gift to be stirred up, ignited and poured out with fresh fire in our pastor as he prepares to go again to the nations with this new appointment in Aftrica. God is moving quickly in this hour, for there is many souls hanging in the balance, and He is going to reveal Himself mightily and supernaturally to get their attention and bring them to Himself. God's going to use this evangelistic gift mixed with the healing gift to ignite fires and bring in the great harvest!
So get ready, get ready, get ready! Hallelujiah!
October 22, 2007 - The Kingdom Oils is Flowing!!
The oild is flowing! Kingdom oil and Kingdom revelation flowing down from the throne, over the head, down the beard, and into the body!!
Do you feel it! Do you feel that oil of the Kingdom anointing and revelation flowing down over us?! Glory!! What Kingdom revelation is being received and released in this hour through our Pastor! As we continue to draw from this anointing and put a demand on it, it will continue to increase and manifest in the house and in our lives. We will truly enter into the fullness of who we are in Christ and walk in that dominion, that authority and that power that is ours through Christ and in the Kingdom.
We receive it, Lord. We receive this anointing and this revelation of the Kingdom. We step into our position in Christ, and we activate and appropriate what is ours in and through You. We receive the anointing and position ourselves to BE Your hands, Your feet, and Your mouthpiece. We yield ALL to You and receive that anointing that is flowing down from the head, over the beard and into the body. We declare taht as we step into this new Kingdom place taht instead of looking to Your hand for healing, we will BE Your hand of healing. We will receive the healing that is ours in Christ and we will release that healing into others, that healing that has been purchased for them. Instead of looking to Your hand for blessing, we will BE Your hand of blessing. We will take those opportunities You give us to bless and to be a blessing, to give out of generouse and unreserved Kingdom hearts. And Lord, instead of just looking to You for words of revelation, we will BE and speak words of revelation, words in season that will bring deliverance, strength, healing and life. We declare, Lord, that You WILL have full lordship over our lives, and that You WILL find a vessel in us that You can flow through, that You can trust with Your treasures and Your power.
We consecrate ourselves, Lord. We come out from among them and make ourselves seperate. We set ourselves apart for You. We open our hearts to receive all that You are pouring into us this hours. We renew our minds through Your Word and allow the supernatural transforming work to take place. We step into our place in the Kingdom and we say "Yes, Lord"! Give us all You got! Pour it on us, Lord!! We receive!!
October 20, 2007 - Fresh Faith & Fresh Fire
Fresh faith and fresh fires are being released!!
Fresh faith to enter into our time of reaping, and fresh fire to enter into it with kingdom power, authority and liberty.
A Lazareth spirit has been released! The Spirit of life and freedom is calling us out of our caves of bondage. Our grave clothes, being consumed by this fresh fire, are no longer restraining us from entering into the fullness of the river. They are no longer keeping us from entering into our purpose and destiny and from receiving our miracle. There is a new boldness as we, corporately, are jumping into this fullness and flow of the river, and it's releaseing signs, wonders and miracles and causing the corporate faith to rise even higher.
Pray afresh in your heavenly prayer language, contend for the faith, not shrinking back but pressing and advancing the kingdom forward. Receive the freedom that is yours in Christ and receive this fresh fire from the Holy Spirit!
Fresh faith and fresh fire! It's falling on the house! Hallelujiah!
October 16, 2007 - Swing Your Sickle!
The kingdom of heaven is at hand. It is now!
The Spirit of the Lord is upon us for He has anointed us.
Now it's time to put the sickle into the fields of harvest, to gather in and reap that for which we have sown. It's time to swing our sickle of faith, to gather in the harvest and receive the fruit of the seeds of prayer and finances that have been sown throughout the years towards this new season. We receive the confirming word from the Lord that was delivered through His prophet Sunday, that it is our season of reaping, our season to reap from taht which we've sown to through the years in faith and obedience.
So, Lord, we swing our sickle of faith. We see our field of harvest full and ripe, ready to be harvested. We swing with faith and confidence for this season of corporate blessing, this season of corporate gathering and reaping of that for which we've sown. We gather in the harvest. We gather in the multiplied blessing and abundant crop from our sowing. We enter into the reaping season with great joy and expectation with hearts turned towards the Kingdom, ready to reinvest our seed into Kingdom plans and purposes, ready to be about the Father's business, for there is much to be done and many lives to be touched in this last hour.
We thank You, Lord, for this new season. We thank You for the prolonged season of sowing for all the lessons learned in that season and for the growth and maturity of our lives and spirits through it. We thank You for Your faithfulness to provide and to faithfully meet our daily needs. We thank You for keeping us, protecting us and now redeeming us into a place of blessing, prosperity and great fruitfulness. We thank You for giving us beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for our mourning. We thank You for giving us a mantle of praise for that old spirit of heaviness, and we thank You for lifting us up out of the pit and setting our feet upon the Rock and putting a new song in our hearts, a new song of love and praise to our King. We thank You, Lord, that we can take upon us this mantle of praise and we can praise You without ceasing for You alone are worthy of all praise and honor an glory.
Continue to be glorified in our lives, Lord. And let Your ever increasing glory increase and manifest in us and through us as a sign and a wonder to the world of Your awesome grace and transforming power. Amen
October 12, 2007 - For This Purpose
"For this purpose was the Son of God manifest to destroy the work of the devil."
Jesus came to destroy the work of the devil and bring us into our kingdom relationship with the Father. When He went to the cross, shed His blood, and gave His life, He conquered death, hell and the grave. After He ascended into heaven He left us with His Holy Spirit to continue on with His ministry in power.
The Holy Spirit was manifested iwth the evidence of "speaking in tongues". When we activate and release our heavenly prayer language it releases power to destroy the work of the devil, move mountains and create God's kingdom vision in our lives and in the earth. Just think of the power that would be released if we were ALL praying in our heavenly prayer language, releasing the inner, supernatural, heavenly voice of God within us, if we were all speaking the same thing through the Spirit. Wow! What power would be released! What liberty God would have to move and create and manifest Himself and His kingdom before us. Just think of it. God having complete control of our lives, of our tongues and our minds, free to really do what He is wanting to do, free to really bring heaven down to earth and manifest it here as it is in heaven, to do creative miracles that no one but God can take credit for. Wow, what an awesome thought!
Let's dust off that heavenly gift of great hidden power that Jesus gave us through the Holy Spirit. Let's use it with new purpose and focus to see the kingdom come here on hearth as it is in heaven, to see the kingdom manifested in our lives as it is in heaven. Let the heavenly language of God inside of you speak for Himself. He has something to say but we have to surrender our tongues and open our mouths for Him to release it.
Have Your way, Lord! We surrender all!
