Redeeming the Land

Redeeming the Land

I heard a testimony from a seasoned missionary, Rev Hank Hallas, who was led of the Lord to perform a ‘redeeming of the land ceremony’ over church buildings, and farms over in India. He had a revelation that the land itself, was defiled by sins of previous and current generations, and that the only cure for sin, was the blood of Jesus.

Rom 8: 19  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

21  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

 

Amplified

Rom 8: 19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship].

20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to [i]frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—[yet] with the hope

21 That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God’s children.

22 We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now.

23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons).

Heal our Land

 

A very familiar verse reads: 2 Chron 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

 

Seems that because of sin, the land itself needs to be healed.

Ps 106:38  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

Joe 3:19  Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.

Is 24:5  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

6  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

Heal Our Land!

Sounds like abortion, genocide, and atrocities, literally defile the land.

Yet, we are the sons and daughters of God for which all creation awaits!

Walking in faith, authority, anointing, filled with the Holy Spirit now, we exercise redemptive rights, and release authority, through forgiveness:

John 20:21  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

22  And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

23  Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

 

My friend, mentor and adopted dad, Hank Hallas has a wonderful revelation of who we are in Christ, and as he goes to India, conducts a ceremony on lands owned by churches or church members. It goes like this:

 

He walks to each corner of the land, and prays: ‘Father, I ask that you would forgive every sin ever committed upon this land, all the way back to the time of Adam, and I declare they are forgiven, in Jesus name! I plead and apply the blood of Jesus here, and call this land into the kingdom of God, redeemed. I pronounce the blessing of Almighty God upon this land and owners home, and break any demonic activity present here, enforcing your kingdom Father, in righteousness (love), peace and joy, in you, mighty Holy Spirit.’

At each corner of the land he takes bread, juice (communion elements), and oil (symbolic of the Holy Spirit), and buries them at each corner, as a prophetic act that this property is blessed.

 

Remarkable testimonies have occurred. Households healed. Diseases stopped. Allergies end. Crops and animals supernaturally produce abundant harvests. Financial prosperity released. Nightmares stop, and people receiving restful sleep, peaceful dreams, and visions of Jesus and His kingdom. Areas where Hindus and Muslims had been burning churches, buildings and properties have been supernaturally protected in the midst of violence and mayhem.

prophecy testimony

Bill Winston ministered at Victory Christian Center here in Tulsa, OK on something similar. Reportedly, a senior in his congregation was troubled by a group of drug dealers and gangsters that sold drugs on the sidewalk in front of her house. She sought the Lord, and her pastor (Bill), for what to do. By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he felt impressed to tell her, to get a bottle of oil, and pour it out, a line down the middle of her street. She did, and pled the blood of Jesus over her property and street. Next morning, as usual, the gangsters and drug dealers showed up again, and immediately entered into a heated argument. They dispersed, and have never again returned to this woman’s house!

I have done this on my property, and we have never had a break in, nor has there ever been violence or a problem at my home, though we live in what is considered to be a rough neighborhood. You can have peace in your home, too!

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I ask that you would forgive every sin that has ever been committed on my property, all that way back to the time of Adam. I plead and apply the blood of Jesus here, and I bless this property, and call it redeemed back into the kingdom of God, now, in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. I declare the kingdom of God in force and in place here, in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, in Jesus name! Amen’

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!

 

 

The Earth Weeps, so we weep….

The Earth Weeps, so we weep....

The Earth Weeps, and we pray….
Jer 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Ps 139: 13 For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well.
My Theology is very simple on certain things, and this is one of them.
I believe that God gives our spirit into the earth, the moment our fathers sperm hits our mothers egg, at conception.
I also believe that God plans for each and every life, and that when He gives our spirit into the earth, that our unique DNA, is encoded in that very spirit, as is the call of God. He plans for our life, provision, and prophetic destiny, before we are even born.
This is why murder, whether in the womb, or out, is wrong.
Thou shalt not kill means though shalt not murder.
Murder
The unlawful killing of another human being without justification or excuse.
(legal definition)
When someone takes the life of another person, who is defenseless, or who has done nothing wrong towards them, it is murder.
This is the crime perpetrated by abortion. There may be accidental parents, but there are no accidental children, God knows and plans for every human being in the earth.
Killing an unborn child, is, murder.
In the list of things that God hates, we find: Pr 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
Yet, the blood of Jesus, is more powerful than all the innocent blood shed in abortion. God hates it, I hate it, but Jesus died upon the cross for sinners, and we have all sinned.
Whether greatly, or minimally in the eyes of man, sin has consequences, and there is only one cure: looking upon Jesus upon the cross, where He paid the price for sinners, of which I, and you, find forgiveness…
If you have murdered, either through abortion, or some other way, Jesus will forgive you, if you honestly ask Him to, and turn from your wrong doing…
De 21:8 Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel’s charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them.
De 21:9 So shalt thou put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.
This verse is not only your solution, but mine, as a man of God. Daily, I humble myself before His throne, for the cry of the slaughtered unborn arising from this nation, is great before Him. My cry for mercy, along with many others, is also great, as we weep, and pray that this bloodshed stop.
And now, I hear another cry, also deep, also painful, also before His throne…this is the cry of the countless innocent red men, that have died upon this land we call the United States of America. Innocent blood, speaking before the very throne of the Creator, for justice…
Re 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Rev 6:9 ¶ And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Re 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Indians, that cried out, and spoke for peace with the white man, yet were slaughtered in their teepees, for land, gold, racism…
Black men and women groaned under oppression of slavery, and those that spoke out, were killed for it…
Innocent blood, heard before the throne of God, speaking, still….
Ge 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
Ge 4:11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
The Ro 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
The earth groans, and the Holy Spirit, hearing the prayers of the innocent, who still live before His throne, groans, and we, with ears to hear, and hearts to obey, also groan…mourning deeply in prayer, for the sins of this nation…praying for mercy, praying for healing for this blood drenched land…
And it is coming!
Despite the foolishness of proud men who think they rule, heaven rules! Jesus is Lord, and that which is wrought in agony of intercession, is bearing fruit in the hearts of the oppressed. The blood of Jesus is being applied to the lands, and curses are lifted, broken, shattered, and demons, that have held uncontested sway, from the time of Adam, are now being contested by the Church of the Living God!
Here, and only here, can mercy triumph over judgment, as the army of God, takes on and takes out, the very demons of murder, and their reign of terror and oppression.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
This is the generation that knows our place, knows our authority, and knows how to use it effectively against the real enemy, satan.
He is the one ultimately behind the violence, murder, injustice, and bloodshed, and he is a defeated foe!
As we stop him, in prayer, wicked people serving him, are also stopped…
Let’s pray:
‘Father, we see, we feel, and we understand, the pain of your heart for the murder of our future, the unborn. We hear the pain in Your heart, for the innocents that have been slaughtered on this soil, both the host peoples, and our black brothers and sisters, in this land we call America, and some of us, feel the groaning in creation, in the very earth itself, from the weight of this sin. Yet, you reign! You rule, and you have given us authority, to bring life from the dead, that they not die in vain. We take our place, and stand before this nation, knowing that you back our authority in Your kingdom. As we sit above this nation, in our station in heavenly places, so we pray that Your mercy would again triumph over Your judgment. That the blood of Jesus, would wash this land, and that You would forgive us…..
Now Father, we take our place, and command every spirit of murder to leave this nation, now! We command abortion, to cease, now! We pray for Your visitation, restoration, and restitution to come to the red man. We stand against racism, and believe we receive your grace upon our black brothers and sisters. We come against the deception, treachery, lies, and blindness over the land, and bind it, declaring the truth, freedom, and love of Your kingdom in every heart, every home, at every level of authority, in the mighty and matchless name, of our King, Jesus. Amen.’

Pray!

Prayer – The Untapped Power Plant of the Church
I remember, as a Rhema student back in the 90’s, my pastor Kenneth Hagin, preaching a message by this title. Still speaks to me today.

Then I heard the story in studying church history. Seems that Aimee Semple Mcpherson was holding miracle services in Los Angeles, and a news reporter was convinced that she was a fake, and set out to expose her. He was convinced that there had to be microphones or wires somehow informing sister Aimee of the medical conditions she was calling out, (supernaturally, by the Holy Spirit’s gift of the word of knowledge) and that God was apparently healing.

So he asked an user: ‘Where is the power located for sister Aimee?’ referring to what he was sure had to be an amplifier or generator hidden somewhere on the premises. The usher grinned, winked, and said, ‘Come here, I’ll show you”, and he led him backstage, down a hallway, to a hidden set of stairs into the basement.

Sure that he was about to get ‘a scoop’ and expose the evangelist, the reporter almost ran down the stairs, camera in hand, to a room in the basement, occupied by over 200 ‘praying grandmothers’ aggressively, and loudly praying in the Holy Spirit!

The secret to the miracles? PRAYER!

I agree with the words of John the Baptist, when his disciples asked him if he was threatened by the greater ministry of Jesus, and all the people that were stopping following him, to follow Christ. His own disciples asked him, what do you think about all the people leaving John?

John answered in a way that reveals a depth of consecration of heart that speaks to me every time I read it. What does the Scripture record him as saying?

John 3:27 John answered and said, “A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”

What an end to all striving! We jostle in this life for money, for position, for recognition, for yea even, ministry. Yet , this truth rings throughout eternity, shouting still from the moment it was spoken down the far distant corridor of time.

Nothing can be truly yours unless it is granted you from heaven.

In light of this truth, prayer is the principal duty of mankind. To know the will of God, to seek His grace for each of our lives, and to do what He says.

Herein are joy, peace, love, and the voice of comfort from the true and living God.

In many churches, prayer meeting is the least attended meeting of the week!

An audience with the King of all Kings, Lord of all Lords, Creator of the Universe, where He invites us to come into His presence and ask of Him whatever we wish!

Some would say, I have responsibilities pastor, business is busy, and family is a lot of responsibility. I need to earn a living you know.

Jesus had something to say about being busy, when He invites us to be with Him:

Luke 14: 7 ¶ And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,
8 When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
15 ¶ And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.
18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind.
22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
25 ¶ And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,
26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

The question is who is in charge of your life? You still running the show, or have you bowed your knee to Jesus?

He is calling His people, His church to pray!

If Jesus is truly your Lord, then you must do what He says!

Seek ye first, is still in the book, and no matter how you want to read it, seek is an action word, and we need to seek Him each morning actually believing what he said in: John 10: 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

I always bring a little notebook with me to prayer, and I jot down thoughts as they percolate up from my heart to my mind.

Why?

There is a devil, that does not want me to hear or obey God each day. He cannot stop me from hearing God, so his next tactic is to try and prevent me from actually doing what God gave me to do.

Mr 4:4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Now, some of you have never embraced the call to discipleship, but that does not mean it is not for you. God has eternity on His mind, and the fields are white unto harvest, but the labourers are few.

Why?

The lost, and the establishing of strong churches in the earth is the number one priority upon God’s heart. Making you and I more and more like Jesus. You see, God loves this world, and each and every person in it. He wants to adopt them into His family, and wrap His loving arms around them, loving out their deepest fears and pains, and then empower them and send them into His harvest field; not because He needs them, as much as He loves them enough to desire that they earn eternal rewards in their obedience.

What separates us, from making headlines in heaven?

Prayer!

I still remember working construction on the job before the truck carrying the toolbox arrived. Things that were previously impossible, suddenly became possible. Jackhammers, power saws, drills, and various power tools made dealing with concrete, steel and wood, a joy, not a curse.

Why?

Each tool had a function, and was designed to do a particular task.

So it is with prayer. If you are going to be a successful Christian, intent on building God’s kingdom, you are going to need tools. Just like there are different tool sets for different jobs, so there are different workings of the Word to accomplish different things in the kingdom.

I like the way John Wesley said it “It seems God is limited by our prayer life-He can do nothing for humanity unless someone asks Him.”

Well, to mechanics, its good to have sockets and wrenches. Carpentry, is chisels and saws. Concrete is jackhammers and drills.

Well, prayer is one toolbox in a Christian’s walk with the Lord.

Let’s look briefly at some of the tools in the box.

There are a few different types of prayer mentioned in the Bible

The prayer of Faith (Matt 21:22, Mk 11:24)
Matt 21:22 (ASV) And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mk 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

All you mountain moving, history making, nation shaking people of authority and glory, need to be in place, blasting mountains of satanic adversity into the sea!

The prayer of Consecration (Luke 22:42)

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

Jesus is Lord! Not you, not me! There are times, when only yielding to His will win the day.

Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

He will build His church, through us, as we yield and fully obey Him!

The Prayer of Commitment (1 Peter 5:7)
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Each day, we commit our will and way to Jesus. Like manna, yesterday’s portion is useless, and will rot. We need fresh bread from His Word, today. Each day we cast the cares, worries, impossibilities, heartbreaks, and situations that we cannot change unto Him, and humbly take up His yoke, a light burden, filled with joy! He loves us!

The Prayer of Worship (Luke 24:52, Acts 13:1-4)

Luke 24:52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.

These are only a few of the types of prayer mentioned in the Bible, and each of these could require some time of explanation to fully describe, but the purpose of this article, is not to teach about prayer, but to encourage and commission you, to actually PRAY!

We must begin each day, involved with ministering TO the Lord, not FOR Him.

Acts 13:1 ¶ Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.

2 (RSV) Revised Standard While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
4 ¶ So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

The prayer of Agreement (Matt 18:18-20)

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

De 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?

It is good to get others in agreement with the known will of God, to see breakthrough and victory, in every arena of life.

United Prayer (Acts 4:23-31)

23 ¶ And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

Everyone was praying at once, and God heard them all at once!

The Prayer of Supplication

Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

1 Timothy 5:5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

Hebrews 5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

Supplication: 1) need, indigence, want, privation, penury
2) a seeking, asking, entreating, entreaty to God or to man

OT : 1b) (Ithpael) to implore favour

When we see things wrong in our lives, families, workplaces, communities, cities, regions, or nation, it is time to cry out to God, and implore His favor and power to make wrongs, right!

Intercessory Prayer

Abraham interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah.

Micah 7:18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.
‘he delighteth in lovingkindness’
‘he delights in steadfast love’
‘ for He delights in grace.’
‘he delighteth in loving-kindness.’
‘his delight is in mercy.’

If you get around me very close for very long, you will discover than I am a man of tears, a cry-baby for Jesus. Why?

Well, he who is forgiven much, loves much, and as I grow in my gift and knowledge of God, I am forever amazed at His mercy towards me. I was a horrid man, full of iniquity and defilement, and He has had mercy upon me, forgiven me, and so transformed me that I cannot help but weep in gratefulness, and supplication that He would do the same for you, for my family, for my church, for this nation, for HE DELIGHTS TO SHOW MERCY! He loves us, and only his mercy prevents our destruction, and so I weep in His love, pleading with Him to do what I know He longs to do anyway, show mercy: forgive, heal, and deliver those who are contrary to Him.

God is Holy. He must judge sin. He hates it. It killed His Son. It must have consequences; otherwise evil would overrun this earth. Yet, He would rather forgive and have mercy than judge. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Yet, how will He do this? He has given the earth to man.

Ps 24:1 «A Psalm of David.» The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Ps 115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

Ps 2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Ezek 22:30 (AV) And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

30 (BBE) And I was looking for a man among them who would make up the wall and take his station in the broken place before me for the land, so that I might not send destruction on it: but there was no one.

Here is the place of prayer, standing before a holy God, pleading for mercy for people who have no protection from the consequences of their sin. Their hedge is down, and they face brutal consequences for their actions, unless we take our place before God on their behalf, in intercessory prayer.

Numbers 16:48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

Numbers 16:48 (BBE) And he took his place between the dead and the living: and the disease was stopped.

Today, in America, if you get over in the Holy Spirit, you will discover very quickly that there is a massive war occurring in the realm of the Spirit, and you will learn to weep, groan, and travail in a level of pain you did not know was humanly possible.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:26 (BBE) ¶ And in the same way the Spirit is a help to our feeble hearts: for we are not able to make prayer to God in the right way; but the Spirit puts our desires into words which are not in our power to say;

Romans 8:26 (LIT) ¶ And likewise the Spirit also joins in to help our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groanings that cannot be uttered.

Romans 8:27 (KJ21) And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

The good news in this, is that we are not alone. Jesus, head of the church, King of the universe, is still alive and on the throne, praying with us in intercession.

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

What is the point of this article?

Simple: PRAY!

At whatever level of spiritual responsibility you are currently, you must pray and obey. Your life, family, city and nation depend upon it.

Pray!

‘Father, show me how to take my place in Your kingdom, in prayer. Teach me how to pray, cause me to hear and obey Your Spirit, knowing that I take my place only in and through You Lord Jesus, my Lord and my King! Amen!’

Prayer for Secret Societies

Prayer for Secret Societies Prayer for Secret societies: I do not know end time events very well yet, but I do know the Holy Spirit, intimately.

As I was reading: Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. It appears that these verses refer to the anti-Christ, and for those of us with eyes to see, this spirit is surely at work in the earth.

We see politicians in power of fierce countenance, with supernatural understanding of dark sentences, with mighty political power.

These leaders did not come to power by military might, but ‘not by their own power’, and it is amazing to those of us who know God, to see them prosper, practice wickedness, and they destroy the work of God in the earth.

Without military coo nor force, they pass policies that are clearly against God and His holiness: abortion, same-sex marriage, implementation of national debt.

While in college, I read a book about a ‘secret society’ that worked globally, that planned the politics of nations, by buying and selling economies, and overthrowing national governments as they saw fit, all that they might become more wealthy, and more importantly, would practically rule the earth.

Though I was not serving Jesus at the time, this book caused the hair on the back of my neck to raise, because I suspected, even back then, that this was actually happening in the earth, and that somehow this book, that had ‘accidently’ appeared on a reading list for a discussion group in a philosophy of atheism course, was designed to be a recruiting tool for their organization, reaching out to sharp, atheistic minds around the world.

At the time, these were only premonitions and vague suspicions, but as the years have gone on, I have been exposed to the work of these globalists through the world of the Bilderberg society, the Illuminati, and the secret meetings of demonic worship held in California at a place called ‘Bohemian Grove’ where world leaders meet, to worship in their festival of fire, as an effigy of the owl, an ancient symbol for the demonic entity the Bible calls Molech.

Seems that President John F Kennedy was about to expose their work in the United States, and was assassinated before he was able to present his speech of expose’. Here is an excerpt from his speech:

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” http://www.thepowerhour.com/news3/jfk_speech_transcript.htm

These people exist. Rather, than enter into fear, or denial, I have sought the Lord, on how best to deal with these ‘secret’ societies, that for all intents and purposes, currently rule the earth.

Da 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Da 4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.
invisible
There is a kingdom that, though invisible to the naked eye, is almighty, and that actually rules the thoughts and plans of mankind.

This kingdom, the kingdom of God, is designed to destroy every other kingdom, and is a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Nebuchadnezzer discovered this. Da 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

Da 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

Da 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
15 ¶ I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Again, I do not pretend to fully understand everything in the times in which we live, but I have read about the Bilderbergs, the illuminati, and Bohemian grove. There are becoming bolder in their operations, as they now own the Harp weapon, and any world leader (like Japan) that will not comply with them, can have their country destroyed by earthquake or tsunami. They orchestrated 9/11, and they use global events to constantly expand their rule, creating global crisis, then becoming the ‘solution’ to the crisis they created, in order to become more firmly entrenched in the region they which to possess. secret2

Bohemian Grove – yearly ‘Festival of Fire’ where human sacrifice offered up to Molech

We have endured a US President, that has just been reelected on a political platform, totally opposed to the Word of God. Sure looks like: Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

I am not saying the President Barack Obama is the actual antichrist described here, but he is operating in an antichrist spirit, that has used politics and policy to destroy righteousness in the United States of America.
righteousness exalts

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Yet, the good news is this: Matt 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Jesus is Lord of heaven and earth!

Jesus is Lord
All authority in the earth belongs to Him, not devils, and that authority, has been delivered to us, the saints of the most High God!

keys to kingdom
Satan’s only power, is in deception, because he has no authority any more, Jesus took it from him, when He rose from the dead.

Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

We have authority in the earth, over demons, and demonically inspired people.

Despite their plans to implement the death camps across the US, and their planned genocide against Christians and Jews, they have no authority to carry out their plans, as long as we stand in faith, and resist them in prayer.

Ps 83: 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

Ps 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. secret1 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 ¶ I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
ask0
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10 ¶ Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

The solutions in America and globally, will not come only from the White House, but the church house, as we exercise the authority of God, through His Word decreed, and expose the plots and machinations of men, and actually break the reign of the demons empowering them. We now have a President that has been elected on a platform that glorifies God. He will not be able to do his job, unless we, the church stand upon his platform promises before the throne of God, and work to again establish righteousness in the earth, that God can bless.

To say these secret societies do not exist, is like the ostrich that sticks her head in the sand, when the lion attacks. She will be eaten.
ostrich sand
Denial is not the answer. Yet, neither will there be a mere political solution. Sure it is good to expose their works:  Alex Jones are working on doing this naturally, yet unless the demons actually reigning through these people are expelled, we discover that:

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. People under demonic power, will not listen to you, nor I, they cannot hear us, for they are not yet born-again, and their human spirit is still darkened, they have no spiritual discernment.

Yet, there are the Elisha’s of God in the earth, prophets greatly feared in the realms of darkness, who know their authority, and see both demonic activity, but expose the political plots of men.

Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Isa 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

Remember how the enemy king had his military strategies constantly exposed to the point he was sure there had to be a spy in their midst, there was no spy, simply a prophet of God moving in the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit!

2Ki 6:12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber. These prophets are still in the earth, and since Jesus rose from the dead, there is no longer a power encounter between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness, simply a truth encounter.

Truth revealed, brings freedom, and stops devils and the men they employ, in their tracks. So, rather than spend hours teaching on the work of these secret societies, let’s do something about their reign of terror. Brother Hagin used to teach us, that if we try to fight spiritual battles, in the realm of reason or intellect, we will lose every time, for the devil is a liar and the father of all lies. He has been deceiving people for centuries, and is very good at it. Yet, if we hold the devil in the realm of faith and authority, we win every time, for greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world.

1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Secret Let’s pray: ‘Father, I bring before you today, the Federal Reserve, the Bilderbergs, Bohemian Grove, the masons and the illuminati, and all of their allegiances globally. I ask that you reveal their works to intercessors, and expose their plots of destruction to the earth. I come against, and bind, break, forbid and stop, the work of every evil spirit operating there, and I release, loose, enforce and believe I receive your kingdom there in power, love, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. I ask you for revelation of Jesus to every person, involved in these societies, and pray for their salvation, and that they would discover your love, goodness, and mercy today. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do. Your kingdom Father, is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. By faith I enforce Your kingdom in these societies, trusting you to release righteous, holy agendas and plans to these people, by the Holy Spirit, and that they would fear You, and do what you instruct them. To those who do know what they are doing, directly opposing your church and Israel, may they have a Saul of Tarsus experience, where you confront them personally, in your power that they be stopped, and may learn to bow before your majesty. By faith, I declare Your decree against them, and I stop them, by faith, In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.’

Breaking Curses Over Nations

This article speaks a clear confirmation to me, some of things that have been clearly spoken to me directly from Holy Spirit….

http://mountainalliance.net/cleansing/

CLEANSING THE LAND
In Alistair Petrie’s book Releasing Heaven on Earth, he speaks of four main categories of sin and defilement and four judgments of God that will visit an offending land when the land is defiled.
Stewardship of the Land – Ezra 9:11; Petrie, Causes of Defilement
Winkie Pratney states in his book Healing the Land, “Famine, ecological devastation, war, and disease are four prophetic voices designed to get our attention when our moral madness is full. What we do not want to acknowledge will not be overlooked – that we cannot get away with living as if God does not exist or as if He has nothing to say to us.”
Scripture teaches us that there are at least four major categories of sin and defilement, the result of fallen stewardship and disobedience.
1. Idolatry (Ex. 20:3-5; Jer. 3:6-10, 16:18; Rom. 1:24-25)
2. Immorality and Fornication (Lev. 18:1-25, 19:29; Rom. 1:24-25; Ezek. 16:25-27; Gal. 5:16-26: Col. 3:5-10)
3. Bloodshed (Num. 35:33; Is. 59:2-3) – Includes the shedding of innocent blood and slaughter of suppressed people groups.
4. Broken Covenants (Is. 24:5-6; 1 Sam. 18:3-4)
Four Judgments that will visit an offending land when it is defiled:
1. Famine
a. Of Food (Ezek. 14:13, Ps. 105:16)
b. Of the Word (Am. 8:11)
c. Of Witness – We hunger for a sense of God’s presence in and through us. It’s as if His presence is absent due to the sin that permeates the land keeping His holiness from us.
d. Of Relationship – Not just our relationship with God, our relationship with others as well. The land is void of reflecting His nature and love.
e. Of Harvest – There is little productivity in the lives of God’s people. Fruitlessness replaces fruitfulness. Spiritual harvests and physical harvests are closely connected in Scripture (see Am. 4:7)
This type of famine leads us to examine the second warning God gives concerning fallen stewardship:
2. Ecological Devastation (Ezek 14:15-16, Jer. 23:10, Hag. 1:9-11)
Pratney comments, “It is no secret that the Western world faces a staggering economic burden. The causes are many, the warnings dire, the consequences frightening. Yet the root cause is none of the usual factors on which we usually lay blame. The root cause is moral. The source: personal selfishness, greed, and carelessness.
How true it is that if we sin against God, even nature turns against us! We each need to examine the level at which stewardship defilement may have penetrated our lives, homes, churches, cities, and nations. In His grace, especially when people forget Him, God allows tragedies to come our way in order to sober us up so we can see things from His perspective.
3. War
Ezek. 14:17 says, “Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and their animals,”
We assume that war involves the assault of one nation against another. This kind of sword mentioned in Ezekiel, however, includes anger, jealousy, resentment, competitiveness, aloofness, and divisiveness – all reflecting the very opposite of the nature of Jesus Himself. This can include wars in the church over sound or faulty doctrine, warfare in our homes, fighting between members of a household, conflicts in relationships, work, employees, or even the government’s petty striving that is given so much media attention.
4. Disease (Ezek. 14:19-20)
Believers are finding that when the tools of spiritual mapping and intercessory prayer are used correctly and applied to a community or a city or nation suffering from disease, we can often trace the history of that disease to an actual time of defilement in which the sin of the people gave the enemy legal access to that area, as implied in Eph. 4:27-28.
Disease itself brings variety of fruit with it – anxieties, sorrow (see Psalm 103), and all forms of illness – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. God is saying again and again, “Don’t ignore Me!” The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it; the world and all who live in it (Ps. 24:1).
These four judgments we have reviewed from Ezekiel also face the last generation of mankind:
Revelation 6:8 says, “I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.“
Here the New Testament is validating the warnings of the Old Testament.
God is a good and just God. He has to judge evil to maintain a standard of righteousness and holiness.
HEALING OUR LAND
This is what Alistair Petrie says we must do to heal our land:
• Consecrate Ourselves – Josh. 7:13 says, “Go, consecrate the people. Tell them, ‘Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow; for this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: That which is devoted is among you, O Israel. You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove it.”
• Identificational Repentance – Ezra, Nehemiah, and David are often cited as prime examples of identificational repentance (See Num. 35: 33, Josh. 9, 2 Sam. 21:1-14 – Jesus cites this passage in Matt. 23:29-36)
• Confession and Forgiveness – The confession of sin releases the immediacy of God’s forgiveness over the activities that have separated us from His presence. (See Nehemiah 1:6-7, John 1:8-9, James 5:16)
• Breaking Bondages – The final step in this process of healing the land is breaking the bondages and barriers that have separated us from God’s love and healing. This principle extends from the individual right through to an entire nation. We need to recall that bondages (distorted relationships) are the result of sin that has opened the door to demonic activity (See Matt. 18:18-19)
SEVEN BLESSINGS OF GOD ON THE LAND
Leviticus 26:4-10 presents seven categories of blessings that God longs to bestow on His people when they live, walk, and work in obedience to Him:
• Ecological Health – Lev. 26:4 says, “I will send you rain in its season, and the ground will yield its crops and the trees of the field their fruit.”
• Economic Health – Lev. 26:5 says, “Your threshing season will overlap with grape harvest, and your grape harvest will overlap with the season of planting grain. You will eat your fill and live securely in your own land.”
• Personal Security – Lev. 26:6a says, “I will give you peace in the land, and you will be able to sleep with no cause for fear.”
• Civil Security – Lev. 26:6b says, “I will rid the land of wild animals and keep your enemies out of your land.”
• International Security – Lev. 26:7 says, “In fact, you will chase own your enemies and slaughter them with your swords.” Lev. 26:8a says, “Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword.”
• Honor and Growth – Lev. 26:9 says, “I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill My covenant with you.”
• Innovation and Creativity – Lev. 26:10 says, “You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest!”
God’s further promises to His people for their obedience are written in Lev. 26:11-13: “I will put my tabernacle among you, and I will not abhor you. I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high.”

Pray in Tongues – Walk in the Love of God!

Pray in Tongues - Walk in the Love of God!

Pray in tongues, that you might walk in Love!
As we walk with Jesus, we are required to love, even the unlovely, and unloveable in our world. This will take the power of God, and if you are honest, is not possible, naturally, as there are some really miserable people in the earth today. Yet, we must love them…
Hear the words of Jesus:
Mt 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Mt 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
We must love..and we can do it by and through the Holy Spirit:
Ga 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love,
Love is a kingdom law, the royal law:
Jas 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
Some say, I will love God, but not people! You see what they have done!
1Jo 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?q
Welcome to my world! Embrace the cross, as people either sabotage what God has clearly called me to do, or quietly neglected us as we endeavor to obey God fully as a family. There is a cross for my pain, my expectations, my lonliness, fatigue, and tears, and out of the fire, comes pure gold, true faith transformed by the grace of our almighty King! Seems that cross, has my name on it. There is one for you too….
In today’s reading, we see a key, on how we are actually able to do this! Love victoriously! God has given us the Holy Spirit, infinite love, to live in us, through us, to love our enemies, the perverse, the miserable, the haters…
Like the old song goes, ‘They will know we are Christians by our love..
Jude 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Notice here, that sometimes, it takes prayer in the Holy Spirit, to build ourselves up in faith, that we may KEEP ourselves in the love of God. Love is a decision: Love Loud today!
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, You are alive and active in Your world. Jesus, you have commanded us to loved our enemies, that are ever before us, people determined to destroy us, to steal our joy, peace, provision, hard hearted…yet, You love them, and by your grace, so can we. Flow through me today Holy Spirit, in my heavenly prayer language, with Your love shed abroad in my heart, that I can love victoriously, passionately, and faithfully today, in Your precious name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!”

Prayer Warriors Needed!

Prayer Warriors Needed!

Prayer Warriors!
Matthew 9:37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Colossians 4:12
Epaphras, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, greets you, always laboring fervently for you in prayers, that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Transformational Prayer –Prayer that will bring the glory of God into an entire city or region, and bring about permanent change is characterized by the following five keys.
From the book, Informed Intercession, p 56 by George Otis Jr
Keys from Case Studies,
1. Persevering Leadership (Neh 6:1-16)
2. Fervent, United Prayer (Jonah 3:5-10)
3. Social Reconciliation (Matt 5:23,24,18:15-20)
4. Public Power Encounters (Acts 9:32-35)
5. Diagnostic Research/spiritual mapping (Josh 18:8-10)
For those of you who have seen the ‘Transformations’ videos, the companion book is also helpful, for those of us committed to prayer for our region, expecting God to do something wonderful.
During this season of my life, I have a word from the Lord that our church, is going to quickly grow to 40,000 members. In order for this to happen, I see clearly that I need to change, as to many of us leaders, as God develops a wineskin capable of holding the growth.
I find myself reading much history of the region, seeking Holy Spirit for keys that will produce spiritual roots of the area, that can be nailed through spiritual mapping in prayer, that the defilements upon the land that have come from innocent bloodshed, broken covenants, immorality, racism may be forgiven, cleansed, repented of, that the land might be cleansed, that the Holy Spirit might freely move upon the hearts of this people…
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, raise up informed intercessors, equipped with knowledge, understanding, and revelation to break curses, defilements, and demonic assignments off of our regions, that You might be free to move amongst us, in power, blessing, restoration, joy, peace, and the prosperity Your presence always brings, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus’

Red Man Rising

A Prophecy Given over Oklahoma Indian Tribes:
Even as Yeshua took 39 stripes in His body, for the healing of your physical body, so these 39 tribes (of Oklahoma) have taken stripes in their body, having suffered horribly for generations.
Even so, I will visit them with deep, deep healing and as I do, I will raise them up as instruments of healing, not only to the other tribes, but also to this land you call the United States of America.
This is one of the keys you have sought, that will unlock the move of my Spirit across this nation, so I have spoken it, so it shall be done.
1Ti_1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
This prophecy was given this Spring, of 2013, at the dedication of the Cherokee prayer chapel in Talequeh, Oklahoma, by a Messianic Jew. I believe it is of God, and so I pray it every day….

Birthing the call…

The deeper place of prayer…

Is 66:7  Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

8  Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

9  Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.

Ro 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Seems I find myself weeping, groaning, deeply moved by the Holy Spirit in prayer…

Not sure if it is the birthing of my particular calling or intercession for the United States right now, but it sure is wrecking me in His presence…
