1/15/2020 Miracle City Global
Kimble Love. Welcome to Miracle City Global tonight. We’re about to set into worship intercession and let the Lord have his way.
Father, we’ve come to gather tonight to worship you in spirit and in truth, to humble ourselves before you. I thank you that you are faithful and true. As we minister unto you, you minister unto us. I declare tonight that your Spirit rules and reigns in this house, that you are Lord and Master, Savior, Healer, and Deliverer, and we yield to you. We say, Come have you way. Show yourself mighty in Jesus name. Amen.
?I need you, oh God, I need you. Rain down. We receive the rains of your love. We press in tonight. Rain down over us tonight. We receive your rain. I see the cloud coming. Have your way. We are your people. If all it costs me is everything, you can have it all. I surrender all. I want it all.
Look into us God. Our hearts are open Jesus. Strip everything away till all I have is you. I will pursue you. I will pursue your presence. I can’t live without your presence. Won’t you come like you promised? Pour out your Spirit.
Anna Love. Won’t you come like you always do. You are the promise oh God. I see promises fulfilled and open doors. It’s a kiss from heaven, like heaven touched the earth. You love like a Father. Engulf me in who you are. So won’t you come?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you? How could it be any better than this? God you’re all I want. You’re all I need. You’re enough. You’re everything to me, to us. You’re everything I hoped for. You’re everything I need, God. You are so beautiful to me.
How lovely, how wonderful is your face. My eyes have now been fixed on the gaze of my beloved, on your face. God I love you. You’re where my help comes from. My heart beats for you. You’re beautiful.
Betty. He slowed down time tonight. He loves spending time with us. I asked what he wanted to do and he said, More than you think, hope for, or imagine. So have your way.
?You bring restoration to my soul. You give me joy.
I am standing on every promise that you made. I will see it come to pass in your name. You give me joy down deep in my soul.
You’re the Life-giver. You’re here to fill us up, give us life, give us joy. Do what only you can do. Nothing is impossible with you. Nothing is impossible for our God. Nothing is too hard for you God.
When I can’t see what’s in front of me, still I will trust you. Steady heart that keeps on going, steady love that keeps on hoping, lead me on. You’ll need leave me. Lead us on. Together we will run.
I have found my home in you, Lord. Make your home in me. Please don’t quit now, you’re almost home to me. Don’t stop now. You’re running into my arms. You’re teaching me how to receive it. You are my Victory, my Champion King.
Betty Love. And the Lord said unto Moses, wherefore criest thou unto me? Speak unto the children of Israel that they go forward.
I decree and declare over us individually, corporately, Go Forward!
I heard the Lord through the worship say, “I’ve had my camera out, and I’ve got you’re before and after.”
When we were singing, You bring Restoration, he’s got the after pictures. He’s got the completed work. He’s got the before and the after, and I believe the Lord is saying to us in this room tonight, those that are watching, to us his people, that what he is doing this year in this season, you’re going to be able to measure the before and the after. The before and the after.
I heard the Lord yesterday, “A hovering of Holy Spirit like never before in this ten year season because only with the hovering of Holy Spirit over our deep will the creative power of the spoken word of God be manifest. Why do you think the songs have come forth in this last season and present season? I would say unto you that they are precursor, that have paved the way for PEY.”
Songs such as, and the Lord named these: Waymaker, Miracle-worker, Promise-keeper, that is who you are. Songs like, Take me back to the Garden. Songs like, I want to be a history maker in this land. ‘Way’ is here. The Way is here. His name is Jesus.
I heard the Lord say, “Every day I’m calling you into a place of communion and intimacy with me.” He is inviting you to take Communion on a daily basis.
I’ll share with you with he shared with me. He said, “If you will begin to do that, Betty, there will not be any symptom of sickness or disease in your body.” You’ll walk in health and wholeness. It can’t be rote and it can’t be a ritual. That’s my part. It doesn’t have to be religious and long and drawn-out. It just has to be, you meet with him. You eat his body. You drink his blood. And you receive his life impartation infused into your very being. The word of God has a return on it.
Here I am, humbled my your majesty, covered by your grace so free. Here I am, knowing I’m a sinful man, covered by the blood of the Lamb. Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine since you laid down your life, your greatest sacrifice.
Majesty, Majesty, your grace has found me. Just as I am, empty-handed, but alive in your hands. Here I am, humbled by the love that you give. Forgiven so that I can forgive.
So here I stand, knowing that I’m your desire, sanctified by glory and fire. And now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine since your laid down your life, the greatest sacrifice. Majesty, Majesty, your grace has found me. Just as I am, empty-handed, but alive in your hands. We sing, Majesty, Majesty. Forever I am changed by your love in the beauty of your Majesty.
One of the words for tonight is Forgiveness. His word is going to come in our lives as a two-edged sword and divide soul and spirit, joint and marrow. It’s going to judge the thoughts and the attitudes of the heart. It is going to take the enemy at the gate and cut off his head. Hebrews 4:12.
The Lord wants to go to the taproot. The taproot is the strong root that goes straight down that has feeders going off of it. The Lord showed me even in my own life—I would have said I don’t have any unforgiveness. No, but I have a memory back there that has marked a relationship. He showed me that he wants to bless that relationship and he gave me the word, “Unequivocally, I want to bless you.” A word I had to look up and it amazed me.
He said there had been a taproot. He is wanting to uproot taproots out of your life and my life. And if there has been a taproot of unforgiveness, if there’s been a marker out there, even though you would say you’ve forgiven, but you really don’t want to see that person blessed or come into a place because of what they did, well, there’s a taproot.
That says, I am uprooting, tearing down, destroying and overthrowing the ungodly structures that would affect you. It’s about guarding your heart in this season and in our life. Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Are you disqualifying people because of their past? Even when they are restored, are you disqualifying them?
God is saying, Your word will produce. Your words will create. But I’m going to the deepest places within your heart and I’m exposing taproots.
History Maker. I’m gonna be a history maker in this land. A speaker of truth to all mankind. I’m gonna stand. I’m gonna run into your arms, into your arms again.
That’s restoration. That’s a declaration.
Is it true today that when people pray cloudless skies will break, kings and queens will shake? Is it true today that when people pray we’ll see dead men rise and the blind set free? Is it true today that when people stand with the fire of God and the truth in hand we’ll see miracles, we’ll see angels sings, we’ll see broken hearts making history?
That’s restoration. He said that this song is a precursor to where we are. We’ll see miracles. We’ll see angels sing. We’ll see broken hearts making history.
Again, “A hovering of Holy Spirit like never before in this ten year season because only with the hovering of Holy Spirit over our deep will the creative power of the spoken word of God manifest. Why do you think the songs have come forth in this season as a precursor to pave the way for PEY?” It’s when you open your mouth and you speak forth his word.
He says, “I am calling you to my right hand. I’m giving you the opportunity of the right hand command. I am leveraging my ekklesia.” The Lord is asking you, Will you join his legislative body? Will you take your place? But in order to be effective, and that the enemy might not outwit us, we must allow him to uproot any ungodly beliefs, any ungodly mindsets, any holdout places.
I almost had a meltdown in a good God way and became a puddle on the floor. I hope in this time of fasting and separation, even in your busyness, me too, that you’re just walking with him in a new way. Do you know you can walk with him and abide with him where you are and still do your job?
I walked into the kitchen and I heard over this area; the first thing that came to me was, “I’m going to make it a ghost town.” At first I thought it was the enemy. Then I heard it again. And Holy Spirit said, “The Lord said to me, I’m going to make it a ghost town. Ghost towns are going to become Ghost towns, Holy Ghost towns. Restoration. The places that have been deserted, the abandoned buildings. You look down on East Pine Street and over this region, some people would say, It’s just become a ghost town.
The Lord said, Get ready for places and cities and towns and regions that have been ghost towns to become Holy Ghost towns of restoration.
Anna Love. Two weeks ago on Sunday morning we got here really early and as we came into Hattiesburg the fog was so thick and white that you couldn’t see anything, and it looked like a ghost town.
Betty. The Lord said, Land, seed, and blessing is now ours. We’re going to operate in the land, seed, and blessing. We’re going to possess the gates of our enemies and the cities of our enemies. The Lord has turned the tables on the enemy and our bowls are tipping. So he talked to me about taproots and he talked about restoration of relationships.
Restored without reservation. Hear me clearly. I’m not talking about abuse. Forgiveness is not tolerating abuse. So I want to be very clear. It’s not being a victim. I think we all know what I’m talking about.
We’re going to make Jesus famous. I believe that. We’ve been destined to do that. But the Lord spoke to me this morning also that fame comes with a price. This afternoon he said to me that transformation comes with a price. What we are doing in the 21 Days, he said, Count the cost. How far will you let me go? Misty Edwards sings. We sang that song in this house.
How abandoned will you let me be? How far will you let me go? I believe the Lord is saying that to us. How far will you let me go in your life? How abandoned will you let me be in your life? Will you relinquish control to the Lord and let him be Lord? And let him be the lead and the guide, the set one in your life? Again, I’m not talking about being weird.
Jesus lived and breathed and moved in the earth and I believe he moved with authority and clarity and responsibility and I believe he functioned. But I also know that he moved in power. I know the secret to that power was intimacy and relationship with the Father.
The Lord is inviting you into a depth of intimacy with him that we’ve not known before. We’ve really not ever seen what we’re entering into. And I’m glad. Because you can’t make it up. You can’t bottle it. You can’t put a price tag on it. But you can say Yes to the Lord.
In our doings today, the Lord led me to pick up Dutch Sheet’s Watchman Prayer book. One of the words that has been spoken over this year is that we’re entering into the Year of the Watchman. I want to share a few excerpts from this book.
It says that judgment begins in the house of God. In order for us to be an instrument of deliverance, healing, etc.—and No, you don’t have to have it all together before you can do something for the Lord, but—I believe that true power and authority and deliverance comes out of your life when you let the Lord do that for you.
In Watchmen Prayer, he talks about keeping watch over yourself. It’s a setup. Your Father is a good farmer. He has seed selection for you every day. If you sit with him or allow him to set you apart for a moment, I hope more than a moment—like Kimble says, People do what they want to do. If you really want to spend time with the Lord, you can find some time to do it. It’s the truth.
Well, you don’t know my schedule. I do know a spiritual son that got up at 2:00 and 3:00 in the morning and then worked a full 8-12 hour day. His work was an hour away, but he got up and spent anywhere from an hour to two hours before he went. He left before daylight and got home after dark. All that word he stored in him became a payday. And there came a promotion. Not that he was doing it to earn it. He just had a passion. Then he got to do what he loved to do, preach the gospel. God was preparing him for leadership in ministry.
The Lord set me up with this. I Peter 5:8-10. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
And the God of all grace, (Majesty, Majesty) who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast.
Hebrews 12:5-15. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
When the Lord exposes a taproot, he’s not trying to be mean or hurt your feelings. In fact, he didn’t hurt my feelings at all. I like the consequence of getting rid of the taproot. When the Lord says he is going to unequivocally bless you, you want to get rid of the taproot. What is a taproot?
Kimble. That which gets tapped.
Betty. What’s getting tapped in you? What’s tapping you? A taproot is a large central and dominate root from which other roots sprout laterally. Typically, a taproot is somewhat straight and very thick. It is tapering in shape and grows directly down. In some plants such as a carrot, the taproot is a storage organ so well developed that it has been cultivated as a vegetable. Do you have a vegetable growing in you of stuff that God wants to harvest out? That’s the taproot.
You can receive it, because he’s giving it and having me share it tonight. Unequivocally is in a way that is clear; in a way that is not subject to conditions or exceptions.
How would you like God to bless you and bless your relationship in a way that is not subject to conditions or exceptions?
Unequivocally also means absolutely, definitely, firmly, undoubtedly; it’s an Amen; How about an Amen on your relationship? Assuredly, flat-out, for a fact, no catch, no holds barred, no ifs and buts, no kicker, no strings attached, on the money, on the nose, really truly, right on, sure, surely, the ticket, undeniably, unmistakably, unquestionably, with certainty, without qualification.
He wants to unequivocally bless you in your relationships; and in any place that you have had unforgiveness, it has been a taproot in your life that stores stuff. And if you hold it long enough, sooner or later, someone is going to tap your button and it is going to come out. Because out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. I believe taproots go right to the heart.
Kimberley. John 15. He taught me as a little girl something similar to that. He said we are to abide in the vine, and the branches are attached. I was pruning a plum tree, and I noticed that the farther the branches grew from the main source, the tap, the tree, they became brittle. He taught me, You stay close by me. Stay in me and you’re not going to shrivel up. You’ll keep producing. He produces through us but we have to stay in him and abide in him in that taproot.
Betty. And Marian your word a few years ago was Rooted and Grounded in Love. That’s where he wants our roots to be, in himself, abiding as Kimberley said, in his love.
:7 Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children as not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.
:9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.
:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
:12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
:14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
There is a separation taking place in our lives right now. See to it that no one misses the grace of God. I believe a taproot of bitterness or unforgiveness is a root of fruit that can explode and cause trouble and bring defilement, not just to you but to others. So what’s the answer? Ephesians 6:18. I Peter 5:8. II Corinthians 2:11. There is instruction there for us.
Watchmen need God’s 20/20 vision. God is certainly not finished with the prayer movement around the world. In fact, he wants to transform it from a movement to a lifestyle. Movements come and movements go. Sometimes that is good. Sometimes that is bad. Wouldn’t it be sad if 20 years from now the prayer movement of the 1990s was only spoken of as good ole days? Will our chapter of history be titled, Opportunities left unseized? They began well, but? What could have been?
Now he’s talking about the 1990s. And here we are 30 years later. And our movement has become more than a movement. We have entered into a place of the decree, authority, legislating heaven. God wants to work with us. He wants to work with you. In order to do that, he does not want the enemy to outwit us.
II Corinthians 2:10-11. Anyone you forgive I also forgive, and anyone I’ve forgiven, if there was anything to forgive, I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake in order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes.
We are saved by grace through faith. We forgive. In Hebrews it says, See to it that no one misses the grace of God. The same grace that brings forgiveness to you and me and enables us to be saved, is the same grace that comes to us and literally saves us from the schemes of the enemy; and enables and empowers us by Holy Spirit to forgive other people—because grace is supernatural. Grace is the supernatural power of God working in you and me enabling us to do what we can’t do in our own strength, on our best day.
I want to draw four conclusions from these three verses listed above.
Ephesians 6:18. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. I like Jan’s word for 2020. Praying Continually.
1. Protection from the attacks of our enemy even for believers is not automatic. There is a part for us to play. Though God is Sovereign, this does not mean he is literally in control of everything that happens. He has left much to the decisions and actions of humankind. If God were going to protect or safeguard us from Satan’s attacks, regardless of what we did, these verses would be totally irrelevant to Christians. So he tells us, Be sober and alert. Why? Because we have an enemy that is prowling around and Satan is looking for an opportunity. Even when he came and he tempted Jesus, it said he left him until an opportune time. He was waiting for another opportunity.
Any time that we are in transition or about to be promoted, or launch into something new, it is a scheme of the enemy that he will sit at the gate or the door and try to prevent or pervert or keep you from entering into your promise.
Somewhere in our theology we must find a place for human responsibility. At some point we must begin to believe that we matter, that we are relevant, for ourselves and for others.
He gave examples. In a professional bout boxer Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini slammed his Korean opponent with a hard right causing a massive cerebral hemorrhage. At a press conference after the Korean’s death, Mancini said, Sometimes I wonder why God does the things he does. Do you think he killed the man? I don’t think so. He didn’t.
A young woman wrote James Dobson this letter. Three years ago I was dating a man and became pregnant. I was so devastated. I asked God, Why did you allow this to happen to me? Let’s talk about fornication.
It is blaming God for things that we have done ourselves, just like the taproot in our lives, and we can’t understand why we’re missing a portion of the fullness of the blessing. Because Satan’s scheme is to come and take your portion. And take as much of it as he can possess. So if we hold on even to the little foxes, we are not having the fullness of everything that Jesus has purchased for us because of our ungodly agreements or actions, etc., or ungodly mindsets.
Do you know that your truth is the truth you believe? Belief determines behavior. And you can’t just blab out scripture. He says, Abide in me and I will abide in you . Let my words abide in you and you can ask whatever you wish. The word comes to you and me in seed form. What that seed does depends on how we respond to it and allow the cultivator, Holy Spirit, to work in us. Seed has to be watered.
But the Lord is ready for you and me to grow up and mature and be weened. My soul is at rest because the Lord has weened me like a child at my mother’s breast.
Wanda’s word is Destiny, and Portion is another word for Destiny. That’s good. We’re getting the picture here. He’s saying, I’ve had my camera out. I’ve got your before and after. You want it?
2. God’s plan is to warn and alert us to Satan’s tactics. This is deduced from the simple fact that since God says not to be unaware of Satan’s tactics, he must be willing to make us aware of them. We need to ask the One in us, Holy Spirit, make me aware of Satan’s schemes in my life and in my sphere of influence, my territory.
If he says to be on alert, this must mean that if we are, he will alert us. God will not ask of us something he was not also going to enable us to accomplish. He said, I’ve made you more than conquerors. Jesus always leads us in triumphal procession. We’ve got a helper. We’ve got a mighty warrior living on the inside of us.
3. We must be alert, remain watchful or we will not be aware of God’s attempts to warn us of Satan’s attacks and plans. This is going to date me right out of the 60s when they came out with Lost in Space—Danger, Will Robinson. It’s the robot going off. I don’t want to be lost in time and I don’t want to be lost in space and I don’t want to be trapped or ensnared by the enemy. I want to recognize the enemy before he ever gets in the gate.
So we must be alert and remain watchful or we will not be aware of God’s attempts to warn us of Satan’s attacks and plans. If these attacks were always going to be obvious, alertness would not be necessary.
Isaiah 56:10 speaks of a blind watchman. What a picture! I’m afraid it has been a fairly good description of many of us in our watching roles. We are often like the disciples of old. We have eyes but we do not see. Mark 8:18. It is time we do more than gaze. We must alertly watch.
4. If we are not alert and watchful, and if we are ignorant of Satan’s schemes, he will take the bigger portion. He will gain on us, taking advantage of our ignorance. Contrary to popular belief, we really can be destroyed due to ignorance. Isaiah 4:6. We may not like to admit it, but Satan really has gained a lot of territory in America.
I can say with confidence today, since the writing of this book, we are taking it back. And I would credit Dutch Sheets as being one of the equippers that has empowered and enabled the body of Christ to move in God’s redemptive plan to take it back.
If watchmen had been on duty many of the shocking events that occurred in our nation could have been averted. Satan takes advantage of us when the watchman concept of prayer is not operating. And it is made clear in the following verse: II Corinthians 2:11. So that no advantage be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
The context is forgiveness. But a general principle is also revealed which is very applicable to the subject of being watchful, being a watchman, not only for ourselves but in our spheres of influence.
II Corinthians 2:11. This translation says, In order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware or ignorant of his schemes. That word unaware or ignorant is from the Greek verb agnoeo which means to be without knowledge or understanding of. Our English word agnostic is derived from the same word.
Technically, an agnostic is a person who is unsure if he or she believes in God. Although we now use the word this way, an agnostic is a person who does not know or understand regardless of subject. They don’t know. They don’t understand regardless of the subject.
We also get the word ignore from the same root. In this verse we are urged not to ignore or be an agnostic without understanding where the devil is concerned. That’s very interesting. Schemes is the root word noema which literally means ‘thought.’ The verse is essentially saying, Don’t be without understanding of the way Satan thinks. That word can also mean plans, schemes, plots, devises because these things are born in the thoughts of the mind.
For greater insight, let’s insert all these concepts in the verse. This is how it would read: Don’t be without understanding of the way your enemy thinks and operates, of his plans, plots, schemes, and devises.
Is there not also a subtle promise here? If God suggests we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s schemes, he must be willing to reveal them to us. What if we are unaware of his schemes? He will take advantage of us. The word advantage is derived from a Greek word pleonekteo which is a compound word meaning literally, to have or hold a greater portion—pleon, the greater part; ekteo, to have or hold.
It is easy to see why this is a word for covet. It also means overreach. This is important. In boxing, the person who has the longer reach has the advantage and usually gets more blows. The word is also translated, make gain. Satan makes a lot of gains on those who are unaware of his ways. Bullinger says that this Greek word means to make a prey of, to defraud. So let’s put it all together and see what it actually says.
To the degree that we are ignorant of the way our adversary thinks and operates, of his plans, plots, schemes, and devises, to that degree he will gain on us, prey on us, defraud us of what is ours, and have or hold the greater portion.
My question is: Do we want to let him do that? No! I want our destinies. We get the greater portion and I say he gets none. So Lord, go to the taproots. The greater portion of what? Whatever! This is what Dutch says. Our homes, marriages, families, communities, money, government, nation, and more.
In the 1970s and the 1980s the church of America was without understanding of what Satan was planning, and he got the greater portion of our schools. The same could be said of our government and many of our churches. I would back up to 1950 and 1960; the church went to sleep. But God! He is raising up an army.
Have you ever been taken advantage of? Have you ever received a small portion? This is funny. I had to laugh out loud. This is Dutch. In my Bible college days we had a way of enlightening the super-spiritual who thought it necessary to intercede for the world while giving thanks for a meal. They were ignorant of our schemes when we asked them to pray over the food. While they traversed the globe we enjoyed the greater portion of their meals. It was a real test of their true spirituality.
He did put in parentheses, I am deeply embarrassed by this abominable practice in my past and would never do it today. But for those of you who feel you must intercede over your food, save it for the prayer closet.
Paul was taken advantage of in I Thessalonians 2:18. Satan gained on him in the ongoing war over spreading the gospel. For we wanted to come to you—I, Paul, more than once—and yet Satan hindered us. We know Paul won more battles than he lost but he was human and at times Satan succeeded in thwarting his plans. Please notice it does not say that God changed his mind about where Paul was to go. It clearly says that Satan hindered him.
Those people who would have us think that Satan can do nothing except what God allows and that we are to ignore him should reread these two verses. God does not ignore the devil and neither should we. And he certainly does a lot of things God does not allow him to do.
The only sense in which it can be said that God allows everything that happens on earth, is that he created the laws and principles of sowing and reaping, cause and effect, and the free will of humans that govern the earth. We however, implement these principles and determine much of what we reap in experience. It is truly God and humans working together. Satan, too, understands these laws and uses them to take his advantage whenever possible.
I would say this. We have come a long way and he has brought us to the place and brought us back to original intention and he is saying, I have given you dominion. I have given you authority to subdue. I have given you authority to rule and reign with me. You don’t have to allow the enemy to outwit you, to rob you of your portion, to destroy your family, you marriage, your children, or carry them off. It is not the heart of God for that to happen.
And he has given us all the resources we need to stand fast, to overcome. Jesus said, Finally, I have given you power and authority, the right and the authority, to tread upon serpents and scorpions, to overcome ALL the power of the enemy, so nothing shall by any means harm you or fail to meet the obligations of covenant to you.
Jesus has destroyed the power of sin, death, disease, sickness, all the works of the devil and the devil himself. He has taken the teeth out of the lion.
So tonight I want to exhort you in the Lord. I want to encourage you. Holy Spirit is hovering over your deep and he is ready to create out of the abundance, out of the words that come out of your mouth. I ask him tonight, Reveal the taproots. Reveal any place that we have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, or we have thought something was the truth but it really is not.
Father, I thank you tonight for this word that has gone forth to us in this room; Lord, more than that, for the worship that has gone forth; and you have presenced yourself among us; and for the word you’ve brought to us tonight. Now Lord, we thank you that all through the worship and the word you’ve been working in our lives and in our hearts.
And Father, I decree and declare that tonight you are going to the taproot and you are uprooting and tearing down and destroying and delivering us from any place of unforgiveness, bitterness, or resentment. Lord, you have brought your grace and we embrace your grace for change. I thank you for healing those places in our hearts, for removing the ungodly mindsets and beliefs.
And Lord, I thank you for bringing restoration, that you turn our mourning into dancing, our sorrow into singing. Lord, we thank you that you are bringing and restoring our portion. Everything that the cankerworm has eaten. We say, Restitution, Recovery, Full Restoration, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Praise God.
