11/3/19 Miracle City Global
Anna Love. Calling the Core. Today is all about calling the ones who are a part of this place, calling them home, calling them into alignment, calling them to their position, letting the vision be made known. It’s a stepping in kind of day. I was seeing and hearing that for many of us who’ve been part of this house and family for a long time, I feel like the Lord is calling the ones who know the vision, who know what the Lord is saying to rise up in it and start acting like you know it.
I want to read Ephesians 1:18 AMP. I feel like it’s a good reminder for many of us.
And I pray the eyes of your heart, the very center and core of your being, may be enlightened, flooded with light by the Holy Spirit, so that you will know and cherish the hope, the divine guarantee, the confident expectation, to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, God’s people, and so that you will begin to know what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His active, spiritual power is in us who believe.
Right there we have a guarantee, the promise that the same power that is Jesus is within us. If we start operating and moving in the truth of who we are, if you’ve asked Jesus into your heart to be your Savior, then you are moving with the power of the living God on the inside of you. If we begin to act like that in all situations, I think we’ll see different results than we’re seeing right now.
These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength which He produced in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, whether angelic or human, and far above every name that is named above every title that can be conferred, not only in this age and world but also in the one to come.
And He put all things in every realm in subjection under Christ’s feet, and appointed Him as supreme and authoritative head over all things in the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills and completes all things in all believers.
I think it’s very interesting we’ve stepped into a new Hebraic month that’s about standing up in your authority. In Genesis 1:27 it talks about how we were created in the image of God. It means that God has given us dominion in the earth, authority to rule. To be made in His image, His likeness, means that whenever we come up under Him and He comes within us, we’re standing in all authority, in all power of the living God.
He’s showing me that not only is it the month of standing up in your authority, but it’s also the month of the serpent and the scorpion. It’s Luke 10:19. He’s given us power to tread on serpents and scorpions, to overcome.
I believe this morning we’re coming into a place and as we move into worship, that the Lord is going to go straight to the heart. It won’t be a struggle to enter in, but we’ll go right into it. I could see the hand of God reaching into each one of us and grabbing hold of our heart, not in a painful way, but it was like he was rubbing our heart, and polishing our heart. Any place that was dim and wasn’t shiny, it’s like He was polishing our heart like it was a jewel.
I see that for the people in this body, this house, where your gifts and callings have been like hidden treasures, where you’ve been overlooked or you’ve had stuff in your life that’s been hard to deal with, the Lord is coming and polishing things off. And who you really are, you’re true self, who He created you to be, it is a Fullness of Identity Day.
To enter into that fullness we have to understand who we are, and that the same power that’s in Christ is within us.
Father, we step in this morning. We thank you for your presence that’s in this room. I thank you, Father, that you’re going to the heart this morning. You’re going to the heart of the matter. Lord, here is our heart. Here is our heart. Here is our heart. Lord, nothing but you, only you. We fix our eyes on only you.
I thank you that it’s a morning of return. Lord, I thank you that just like we’ve been proclaiming the book of Hosea 2, I thank you that you have drawn us, and it’s that moment of return. It’s not return that’s coming, but we step into that return now, face to face with you, coming into the arms of our lover.
Jesus, we say have your way in us this morning. Break down our walls. I thank you that we are unwalled. We are not boxed in or keeping you out. But we give you place in the center of our hearts. Lord, I thank you for your fire is coming this morning to burn up. When the Word of God comes it burns up chaff, but it also lights a fire of passion within the people. When the fire of God comes, it gets rid of the old, the gross, the junk. And it brings to life the glory.
We make much of your glory in this place, Lord. We make much of your person, of who you are. And we honor you this morning, Lord. We honor you, Jesus. Take your place. Come and take your place at Miracle City Global. Come and take your place in this body. Come and take your place in your people. We say have your way, Lord, in Jesus name.
?Come back. Come back. I’ll take you to your first love. I want to be the only one on the throne of your heart. I will remove the name, the faces of your lovers. I will write on you my name forever. I will be known by you as faithful and true. So come back.
I’m coming back. You draw me with cords of loving kindness. Out of the wilderness I am coming. There is return, to the first love. Return Return Return
Lane. The Word of God tells us there will be a great falling away before the return of Jesus. But I do believe in this moment that the fields are white, that the harvest is ready, that many will come to the Lord in this season because they’re ripe, ready for the picking. We believe the Word of the Lord, written and spoken. At the same time there is a great falling away, there is a great return that we see in the spirit. So we agree, Lord ?the fields are white unto harvest. Harvest is ready. There is a great return. Return Return Return
Anna. Even right now, Lord, we thank you that in our own hearts, the ones that know you, who have lost focus or are not solely set on you, Lord, we turn our hearts back to you right now. We turn our hearts fully and completely unto you. We return to our first love.
?We return to our first love. Oh we return. We return. With all my heart, I love you, Lord. You’re my first love. You’re my reward. You’ve been good to me, so good to me. My soul sings.
Kevin. Jesus, Jesus, I set my heart on you. Desire of the nations. Desire of my heart. I love you. I love you, Jesus. I love you. Everything I every wanted I found in you, my King. I set my heart on you. I fix my eyes.
Danette Riley. Psalm 45:10-17. Listen oh daughter, consider and incline your ear. Forget your own people also and your father’s house so the king will greatly desire your beauty. Because he is your Lord, worship him. And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift. The rich among the people will seek your favor. The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace. Her clothing is woven with gold. She shall be brought to the king in robes of many colors.
The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to you. With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought. They shall enter the king’s palace. Instead of your fathers shall be your sons whom you shall make princes in all the earth. I will make your name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore, the people shall praise you forever and ever.
Lord Jesus, King Jesus, we welcome you and we incline our ear to you, our King.
?I can hear the voice of my lover. He’s beckoning me, calling me tenderly, cause I heard a sound in the wilderness, a shaking in the ground. Come back. Come back and take your place. Arise Arise
I can hear the sound of an army rising. It’s time to get up, stand up, stand up on the word. Remember what you’ve heard. Remember Remember Remember what you’ve heard.
Nancy Pitts. There are soldiers on horses riding up to the crest of the hill. A few have topped the crest of that hill and they’re calling the army to come behind them. Our leaders are before us. The Lord Jesus Christ rides first. But our leaders go before us and it’s time to mount up and ride. It is time to defeat the enemy and take what is ours. Praise you, Lord. Lead us, Lord, and we will follow. We will go over the crest with you wherever you desire to lead, in Jesus name.
?The Lord goes before us. The Lion of the tribe of Judah goes before us saying Victory Victory Victory is ours. Arise Arise
Remnant rising, can you hear it? Sons and daughters rising up. Sounds from heaven we’re releasing. Courts in session. There’s a sound coming out and it’s routing out the enemy.
Kevin. He has a fire in his eyes and a scroll in his hand. He’s riding a white horse across this land and he’s saying, Will you ride with me? We say, Yes Lord we will ride with you.
Nita Maselle. We were singing about coming home and Him having his place in our hearts. I got to minister to two prodigals this week. One received salvation for the first time. And I had a call on the way here from another prodigal that I’ve been praying and believing that she would come around. I knew God had deposited in her and that she would turn back, and I got the call this morning. I’m meeting with her after this.
God was telling me that he’s righting some wrongs. He’s righting some wrongs. And I kept thinking, What made you leave the house? What made you leave the Father’s house? What blocked you? What caused you to go astray? The Lord is going to deal with those things.
The prodigals are coming in and they’re not going to stay hurt and stay in that place that kicked them out, but He is going to deal with problems, now. You can’t deal with it. It’s going to take the power of God. You just get out of the way and you believe and let Him flow through you, and pray deliverance over them from anything that obstructed, anything that hurt them. And He’s going to right the wrongs in their lives that caused them to go astray. Sometimes it came through people, even in the church. Bad instruction. A lack of instruction. False mindsets that prohibit people from walking in the fullness of their call. He’s going to right some wrongs.
He’s bringing the prodigals in and we are going to receive them. We’re going to let God do his perfect work in their heart and seal His name across their heart, and they’re never going to go back again. They’re never going to leave the Father’s house. They’re going to come back for good in Jesus name. We receive them in Jesus name.
?He has a crown on his head and a scepter in his hand and he’s leading the army across this land. He’s calling out to you and me. Will you ride with me? We say, Yes Lord, we will ride with you. Right by His side.
We take our place with you, right beside you. Make us ready. Let there be oil in my lamp and my fire not go out when I hear the Bridegroom come. Make us ready.
Angels gather around his throne. Heavenly hosts are singing out as the prayers go out. All the earth is hearing the sound.
Lane Bass. I hear the Lord saying, How much heaven do you want? We flippantly use terms like, This feels like heaven. Lord, I pray that we would allow heaven to flow through us in a way that people say, This feels like heaven. I don’t know what it is, but I want it. Let’s release heaven.
Betty Love. I see an explosion in the midst of the sound from the glory of His presence in this place. We’ve set up his command center, his city. A sound like an atomic explosion coming out of this place. Because heaven is here. It’s more than heaven in this place. It’s his kingdom. It’s his kingdom. It’s his rule and reign. His reign is here. The reign of heaven. The reign of heaven. The REIGN. ?His kingdom reign. His rule, his authority, his anointing. It’s his kingdom. It’s his kingdom. The kingdom of God is here. The kingdom of God is here. The kingdom of God is here in this place. He’s established his throne. He’s established his throne in this place. The King is here. Messiah. Messiah. Messiah.
?Anna. Our Messiah is right here in our midst.
Kevin. Desire of the nations. Desire of my heart.
Betty. Kingdom of God.
Anna. I will remove the names of your lovers. Even the memory of their faces will fade. I will write on you my name forever. I will be known by you as faithful and true. Let truth arise.
Betty. Praise you Jesus. We consecrate. We consecrate our lives to you oh Lord. We’ve come to Mt. Zion. We’ve come to your city. We’ve come to Mt. Zion. We are your city. We consecrate our lives to you oh Lord. We say Holy. Holy Spirit, come and lead us. Come and carry us in this place.
Danette. As we were worshiping I saw a bridal registry and the Lord is asking us to sign that bridal registry. He’s calling us to re-covenant with him today. He said, I have a proposal for you. Praise you Lord. Praise you Jesus. It’s Homecoming. This is the season of homecoming, even in high schools. The Lord is calling us home. Because the fields are white and ripe unto harvest. He is harvesting us. He is calling us into our places.
I hear him say, Places. Places, everyone. He is harvesting us. He is calling us into our places so that we’re able to equip the thousands that are coming in. The prodigals are coming home.
Wanda Sumrall. I saw in this season where the scheme of the enemy is to steal the hearts and the affection of the people away from the Lord our God. I believe that’s why we are dedicating our hearts to Him today. The seducing spirit will come with everything he can to pull your heart, and your mind, and your flesh away from the one true God.
The Word of God talks about an Absalom spirit. David’s very son sat in the gates and stole the hearts of the people from the king. This is the scheme of the enemy. But we say that our hearts belong to the Lord. We say that our hearts are to ride with our King across this land in His army. We say that we will ride beside our Bridegroom, that we will be a true Bride, that we will not be pulled away, that we will not be allured by a seducing spirit.
We decree and declare, we say in Jesus name, that our hearts belong to the one true God. Our hearts belong to our first love. Our hearts belong to Jesus, the one who died and gave his life for us so that we could live abundant, pure, whole lives before our King. We say that we belong to Him and there is nothing, nothing, that will pull us away, in Jesus name.
Danette. I hear the Lord say, Get in the marriage carriage. The Lord is asking us to get in the marriage carriage with Him. In this month of Cheshvan it’s like Noah’s ark. The Lord wants us to be shut in with Him in the marriage carriage, in that place of intimacy. Praise you Lord. Praise you Jesus. As Brad taught about Cheshvan, it’s about smelling the awe of the Lord and the fragrance of myrrh.
I thank you God, that we are your war horses and we stand and smell the battle from afar. We stand and we smell. That word smell also means ruwach. It means to smell in addition to perceive and to be of quick understanding.
Father, I thank you as we are standing in this month of Cheshvan that we are able to smell and that you are increasing our smell. And as we get into the marriage carriage that we are emitting the fragrance of heaven.
Betty. The Lord says that this is a Triple Crown Day. The Triple Crown Season, even in this month of Cheshvan. For there is a new anointing that the Lord is releasing even in you today. It is a yoke-destroying anointing, a yoke-destroying anointing. It’s the month of the flood when the rains began. The flood lasted for a year. It’s the covenant month. But the Word shares with us that the flood will keep coming in our lives—it will go up to your neck—until you and I are ready to deal with the root issues.
The anointing of the Lord on the inside of you is real and it’s not counterfeit. That anointing teaches you to abide in Him as He is in you, to live in Him. There is an abiding anointing. His name is Holy Spirit. You have an anointing from the Holy One of Israel and you know the truth. That’s what Anna was singing about and decreeing and releasing—about knowing the truth. You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
The very anointing of the Lord, of Messiah on the inside of you, is going to cause you to know the truth. And that anointing is going to teach you about all things. How many of you want that anointing to begin to teach you?
There is a revelation that is in you even now to unlock what has been shut heretofore. Triple A. AAA. Authority, Anointing, and Ability. This is a month to tread upon serpents and scorpions. Jesus said in Luke 10:19, I’ve given you authority. Just reach out and receive the authority. Just acknowledge that the authority of the Lord is extended unto you now. It’s not coming just from the outside. It’s coming from the inside out. The authority of Jesus in you.
He said, I’ve given you the authority. I’ve given you the right and the authority to carry out the action. Hei Hei Hei. To tread upon serpents and scorpions. To overcome ALL the power of the enemy. See, He wants you to overcome all the power of the enemy, so nothing shall by any means fail to meet the obligations of covenant to you. It’s covenant month. It’s seed time and harvest.
Don’t say four more months and then it’s harvest. It’s harvest time now. We’re seeing Hollywood come in. We’re seeing athletes come in. We’re seeing prodigals come back. There is an awakening that is already happening in our nation. ?Come on now. It’s authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions. We’re overcoming all the power of the enemy. Nothing, nothing, no thing shall harm us, shall fail to meet the obligations of covenant to us.
So right now in our lives, in our land, in our gates, in our cities, in our territories, tents, and treasuries, I decree and declare that the power of sin, the power of death, the power of disease and sickness, the power of the devil and all the works of the devil are destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ, and we reckon it so right here, right now. ?Freedom. Freedom. Freedom in the name of Jesus.
Betty. The AAA, the authority, the anointing, and the ability of Jesus is something you hear at Miracle City all the time. But the Lord wants it to become a kingdom reality in you and me. You walking in the authority of the Lord in your life. You walking in his anointing. The Word of God says the anointing destroys the yoke. If there is any ungodly yoke that is trying to attach itself, the very anointing of the Lord will break it. It’s His ability. It’s His power. It’s His presence.
This is the triple because it’s about your spirit, soul, and body this month. It’s about divine order and alignment. It’s about re-covenanting with Him. I thought about this. In the season of AV we are coming through the straits, through the narrow place. There’s a pressing in but we’re coming through.
In this past month of Tishrei it’s a time to press through the crowd and touch the hem of His garment so we’ll get healed if we need healing. That’s covenant, too. Because when she touched the hem of his robe, she took hold of the Word, she took hold of covenant, and it says her issues stopped. That word stopped actually means covenant. It’s the truth. In the Greek that word stop or stopped is covenant. Covenant will stop your issues.
Blood covenant will speak to any issue that you or I have. So He says, Be healed. Be made whole in your spirit, soul, and body, right here, right now. Because there is a flood of the Spirit of the Living God being released from the inside of you and me now to uproot, tear down, destroy, and completely overthrow any root issue in our lives. He’s bringing it up from the roots. He’s bringing it up from the roots.
Also in this month, let’s talk about press. In the summer we were coming through the press, that narrow place. Last month we were pressing through the crowd. And now the Lord Himself has come to press you. I want to be in the press, Lord. I want the anointing pressed out of my life. I want a fresh anointing of your Spirit and your fire.
Pour out your Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you so that I may know you better. That the very eyes of my heart are going to be enlightened in order to know the hope of the calling. Hei Hei Hei. The hope of the calling.
The glorious riches of His inheritance that is stored in you now. You’re not trying to get the anointing, the authority, or the ability. You’re not trying to get the calling. You’re not trying to get the inheritance. That inheritance is already yours. It’s already yours. Spirit of wisdom and revelation, His anointing, to know Him, to know the call on your life, the confidence of the call.
The anointing that He is pressing out of you in this season is so that you will be mobilized and active and functioning in your birthright, in your gift mix, in your call, in your anointing, in your authority. And you’re not going to be able to function there unless you have an unction. But we have an unction from the Holy One. It’s His anointing. ?It’s His anointing. Fresh oil. Fresh oil. Fresh oil. The hope of the calling. The glorious riches of His inheritance stored within the saints. And His incomparably great power that is within us. There’s power, power, His power, living in you right now. The same power that He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him above all rule, power, authority, and dominion. And gave Him the name that is above every name. And put everything under His feet.
?Reckon where you’re seated. Reckon where you’re seated. Know whose seat is living on the inside of you. Know who you are, whose you are. Holy Father. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Fullness of God. Fullness of God.
Lane. The Spirit of the Lord our God is upon us. The Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted. He has sent us to bind up the brokenhearted. To proclaim liberty, freedom to the captive. And freedom to those in prison.
Betty. Receive His anointing. He has anointed us. Set a seal of ownership upon us. Given us His Spirit as a deposit guaranteeing what is to come. I would say unto you even now we are in the ‘What is to Come’ Moment.
So Father, we give you glory. We give you honor. Father, we thank you for what you have stored within us, and you are releasing in this 5780 Hebraic month of Cheshvan. Lord, we thank you for your authority to tread, your anointing, and your ability. We thank you for the anointing of the prophet, priest and king resting upon us and functioning through us. Our Messiah. Kingly anointing. Prophetic anointing. Full functionality.
?Kingdom authority. Kingdom reality.
Betty. Praise you Lord Jesus. Father, I acknowledge that weighty anointing of the presence coming upon us, clothing us, like an anchor in our souls, bringing wholeness and fullness. Father, I thank you for the glory of your presence in this place, for your revelatory environment. That you have shut us in with you because we have found grace, just like Noah. We found grace. We found you, Jesus. We worship you. Amen and Amen.
Kimberley Davis. I want to add the fact that Jesus knew exactly what He was saying when he said to His disciples, I give you the keys to the kingdom. In Jewish tradition, when a Jewish family would give a key to a person visiting their house, it wasn’t just to be a house sitter. I’ve given you authority as if you were the master of the house. Full authority.
Betty?Just receive those keys. Just receive His kingdom keys to you today. Receive His authority, His anointing, and His ability right here, right now.
Betty. When we step back in there is going to be a tidal wave rushing anointing that is going to come out of you. It’s going to surprise you. Amen.
?We declare joy in the Holy Ghost.
Betty Love. I heard the Lord saying 10 for 10. I saw that when you run out there like a runner running, Jesus, like a quarterback, is going to hit you every time, every time. If you know who you’re playing with, if you know who you’re running with, you know he doesn’t miss. He’s decreed victory over your life. And he is erupting on the inside of you and me with joy today because the joy of the Lord is our strength. Where the enemy would want to come and overplay and violate our boundaries, and try to take authority and control, the Lord says he’s come to take it back. Not just come to take it back. He’s already taken it back. You just need to receive it today.
As we closed the first portion, Rosemary came up. She missed that window. She said she saw Jesus with one of those whips, like when he came into the Temple and he ran out the moneychangers. She didn’t say that. What she said is that the Lord says He’s had enough of the spirit of religion and he is driving out. There is joy in the sanctuary. There is joy in the Holy Ghost. There’s joy. We’re in the season of joy.
When Apostle Kimble says he has the word for this new season and it’s Joy, yay God, well well well.
Kimble Love. Amen. Praise the Lord. How many of you are expecting God to do something for you? Just put a demand on the anointing that’s in the house. You won’t be disappointed. He gives freely to those who seek. Knock and the door will be opened to you. Hallelujah. He’s a good Father.
Everyone please go vote on Tuesday. You may say, Well I’m a Christian. I don’t get involved in politics. I tell you you are deceived. We have dominion over this earth as Christians, as children of God, so therefore, we go forth to cast our vote. Our vote matters. I encourage you. Go and vote. If you don’t go vote don’t complain about who wins because you had nothing to do with it. It’s our God-given right, so go do it.
It’s a busy week coming up and we’re going to see the hand of the Lord move individually in our homes, in our cities, in our state, and across this nation. Because God is moving in a mighty way. He’s using His people and we are them.
The word I’ve been hearing all morning since I’ve been here is Serious. We’re in serious times. Have you heard the term, It’s time to either fish or cut bait? We’ve got to start doing what he’s called us to do. To take our walk, our actions, our thoughts captive unto Him. To be about His business. Not be lukewarm, but be on fire for the things of God. We’re in serious times.
This month of Cheshvan is historically the time of Noah’s flood. When the flood came there was a time to get the ark loaded with all that God had commanded. He had a certain amount of time to get the ark completed, get the supplies needed, and get the animals onboard. The last to come onboard was his family.
The Word of God says the door was shut by God. He closed it and sealed it himself, and it couldn’t be opened. I want to encourage you. We’re in serious times. We’re in the time of the flood. So you need to be in the right place at the right time doing the right things to receive the right results that God is intending for this time and season.
In this season of the flood, God will take that and cause you to rise above your circumstances, or the enemy will come and try to use it as a tool to put you under and keep you there. I declare over the Body of Christ, the people of God, that you will arise, that you will come up with the flood over every circumstance and condition. And we will come forth and go forth on dry land, on fertile ground, and reap a mighty harvest.
We’re going to enter into worship and see what God is going to do today, because He is a good good Father. I expect Him to do everything that He said He will do.
Father, we thank you for this day. We thank you that you have given us the opportunity to come and assemble ourselves together to worship you in spirit and in truth. Father, we do take the call and the anointing, this time and the season, seriously. Father God, let us not be distracted, deceived, hindered, or held up in any form or fashion. Lord, that we not get tied up in the things of this world, but that we look to you as the Author and Perfecter. That we walk and go forth in the plan and the purpose, that we would see your original intention for each one of us, individually and collectively. And that we would go forth and fulfill those purposes according to your perfect plan, to see your kingdom come, and go forth in ways we’ve never seen before. Use us Lord, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Let’s worship this morning.
?Lane. Found in your name, the power to save. Jesus our hope and strength. You made a way. We give you the highest praise. You deserve it all. My heart cries out to you belongs the glory. You’re worthy Jesus. My soul will rise to only bring you glory.
Kimble. Praise you, Father. Lord, we’re here to bring you glory, to bask in your glory, to honor you, to bless you, to receive from you today. As we receive we also desire to give. As we continue to worship this morning we bring our tithes and offerings and our first fruits, and sow into the work of the ministry. To see the kingdom of God empowered and advanced throughout the land.
Our Father is so good that He’s given us all the ability to produce wealth. So we’re going to invest a portion of that we’ve been blessed with into His kingdom. His kingdom always has a great return. You can’t out give Him.
Lord, we come today to sow and give and invest in your kingdom. We’re going to see supernatural increase come to ourselves, individually and collectively, to your body, to your church, to this land, Father. As we come and give we’re also going to partake of Communion and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.
As he commanded us in the Word of God, on the night that he was betrayed, he met with his disciples in an upper room to have the last supper. At the meal he took bread and broke it and said, This bread is my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me.
Then he took the cup, held it up and blessed it, and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood that will be for all who believe. Whenever you drink of it, do this in remembrance of me. Today we come to the table. We’re going to eat of the bread which is His body and drink of the cup which is His blood, to celebrate the price He paid redeeming us back to God. That means bringing us into right relationship with the Father, so that we can truly be His sons and daughters once again.
So as we come to the table and take the bread, the elements, the juice, into our bodies, supernaturally, spiritually, we’re taking hold of the very DNA of Jesus, I believe, to empower us, to quicken us, to remind us to remember all that Jesus did, all that He is doing and all that He is going to do for us through the new covenant He has given us.
So Lord, today we thank you for your body. We thank you for the cup. We thank you, Lord, that you paid the price to bring us into right relationship with Father. I thank you that you gave us salvation. You delivered us. You healed us. You gave us the ability to prosper, to go forth, to produce. To be your sons and daughters. To be your light in the world as we go forth, to carry the good news of the kingdom.
So Father, bless the table, bless the elements, and bless us to receive the fullness and to walk in the new covenant that you’ve given us, in your name we pray. Amen.
?Your love sets our hearts ablaze. Lord come and fill this place. I will worship you always.
Betty. Let that be your heart’s cry. It’s personal. It’s corporate. You’re calling him to come and fill your territory, your tents, and your treasuries.
?Fill me up God. Fill me up to overflowing today. Love of God, overflow. Permeate oh my soul. My soul sings how I love you. There’s no end to the affection you have for me. Heaven come down.
Betty. We’re in over our heads.
Anna. I’m all in over my head, no holding back. Wave after wave crash over me.
Lane. My soul sings how I love you.
Anna. Come alive in the river, bursting up from the ground. We feel it now.
Take off those grave clothes. Mourning season is over now. Come into the light.
Betty. Blue worship flags placed on floor. Betty standing in the river. We’re going to prophesy out of the river. Calls people to come stand in the river. The Lord is going to put a new song in your mouth. We’re going to stand in the river and prophesy. The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Because up out of you is going to come a bubbling crude.
?Stand in the river.
This is one of our strongest months of revelation, where everything that you’ve been receiving from the Lord, you’re going to be able to assimilate it. He is going to bring a fresh, new anointing out of our lives. It’s where He presses into you, so then it’s going to come out. There’s a word or a song in your mouth. It’s revelation that brings revolution. You don’t have to think it up. He says if you open your mouth, He will fill it.
?So we’re going to open up our hearts to Him. We open up our hearts to You.
Everyone in this room, I call our spirit men to rise up in His true righteousness and holiness. Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus. Let’s set our hearts and minds on things above where we’re seated. Yay God. We’re going to prophesy.
Bart Rainey. Now is the time to see my salvation, says the Spirit. Many of you have been worn. Many of you have been binding and loosing, but the Spirit of God is telling you, It’s time for me to show you my salvation. It’s time to rest in Me, to hear from Me and let Me do it, oh mighty warriors. He’s saying, This is the year where it begins. It will intensify and grow. And you will flow in a tidal wave of anointing that’s beginning this year, of pure revelation that you’ve never heard before.
Get into the deep. Get into the deep. Quit striving in your mind. Quit striving in your soul. Let your spirits rise up strong and mighty, oh mighty warriors, says the Spirit. Just step back and let me show you my salvation, says the Spirit, for I am with you always. I am with you. I am with you.
Brenda Eason. I saw a cloth sack. People were going through toting a cloth sack on their backs. It was rough and I saw the word sackcloth, so I looked it up. That was a time of mourning, a time of repentance. It wasn’t a good feeling. Sackcloth was made of rough hair and it was hard to carry. I saw the sacks being laid down.
A little later on the Lord said, Today I’m handing out invitations. In order to get this invitation and go where we’re going, you’ve got to lay that sack down. You’ve got to lay all that stuff down. You can’t carry that and go with Me where we’re going now. You’ve got to lay it all down. We’re going into a new thing. We are moving and that heaviness has got to go. Lay it down and go forth with me, in Jesus name.
Connie Rainey?It’s a new season. It’s a new day. All of those old things, they’re passed away. So dust off your feet from that old season, old wineskin. And step into the river of the new. It’s going to be glorious. Higher Higher Higher. Oh we worship you, Lord.
Betty. Because we’re in the month of Manasseh. And it’s about forgetting your troubles and the troubles of your father’s house and leaping forward, leaping up and leaping out, in Jesus name.
Marion Neill. When we were worshiping and singing about the waters and the waves, I saw a man in white walking toward us on the water. I immediately thought of Mark when the disciples were in the boat. Jesus had told them to get in the boat and go to the other side and he was on the land. The waves were against them and they were rowing hard; they were toiling. It says that Jesus started walking toward them on the water, and he would have passed them by. They were terrified because they thought he was a ghost. But he said, Don’t be afraid. It’s me. I’m here. So they let him into their boat, and immediately the waves calmed down.
So today, I heard the word Alignment, and I thought about us being aligned with Miracle City Global. But then I began to think about all of us from all of our regions across the state coming here today. And I saw an alignment in the state, and I saw Jesus coming and getting into our boat.
Father, we decree and declare today that you have aligned this state. From this place we say, Jesus, you are in our boat. We declare alignment in the state of Mississippi, from the north, the south, the east, and the west. Father, even in this election, we say Align Align Align in the name of Jesus.
Kevin Wilson. I kept hearing from the Holy Spirit that it is time for us to drink from the well. It’s time for us to drink. When He met the Samaritan woman and was about to bring a whole new revelation of who he was as the King, she first questioned him. Then Jesus, being who he was, said, If you drink of this water you will never thirst again, but come into eternal life. She took a drink of that water, and because of what she did, she changed a whole city.
So God is saying, It’s time for you to drink so I can bring you to a new revelation of who I am, because of the cities we are about to transform. It’s time for a new realm of revelation of who Jesus is as our King, as our Savior, as our first love. It is time to drink of Him again. It is time to drink of Him again. We have known this old place, but God is bringing us into a new place of Him. He’s bringing us into a new revelation of who He is. It is time to drink again. It is time to drink again. He is getting us at that point of Samaria. It is time to drink again.
?You’re the God of this city. You’re the God of this people. You’re the Lord of this nation. You are.
Betty. He’s changing a city, changing a region. He’s changing a state. He’s changing a nation even now. Change Change Change. Mississippi, Change. Change change Change, people of God. Be the change. Be the change. Make the difference. Change Change Change.
Nita Maselle. He said, I’ve crowned you with my glory. I’ve crowned you with life. He wants you to wear his glory in the earth because you are his glory in the earth. You are his reflection in the earth, and he wants you to wear it and to shine for him. And let people see that shining crowning glory of God, that life of God, permeating over you. Be his reflection.
Betty. We receive it. Every word of God. Every word of God. To Idirian, Do you have a word? She just wants to stand in the river. That’s a sign in itself.
?I just want to stand in the river. I’m standing in the river, God.
Danette Riley. The Lord said to declare and decree a Decade of Jubilee. The Hebraic letter for this month is NUN and the value is 50. The Lord said to declare and decree jubilee. As Bart released his word about a pure flow, Hebraically the word is DEROR. It means a flowing, a free run, liberty. This word comes from DAR which is pearl. We are his pearls of great price. It takes years for a pearl to be formed. But the Lord wants to encourage you today.
Also, out of this free-flowing run and liberty. Exodus 30:23. He gave Moses the ingredients for the anointing oil of the Lord. It had myrrh in it, the spice, fragrance, associated with this month. The Lord wants us to know the anointing that is being pressed out of us, the process. A myrrh tree is wounded and the sap comes out of that tree because it’s wounded. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, for us. And for the joy that was set before him, he endured the cross.
So the Lord wants you to know there is joy on the other side. There is liberty and freedom for those who have endured the cross, for those who have tasted the bitter waters. But the Lord, this free-flowing liberty, we’re in Isaiah 61.
The Lord said to me yesterday, I am declaring my Emancipation Proclamation. He’s about to set the captives free. He said, They’re coming in in a tidal wave. A tidal wave. I didn’t know when he gave me this word that the movie Harriet Tubman was released yesterday—this woman, this general, this hero who helped to bring those slaves, to set them free.
The Lord is raising us up. He’s calling us into the gate. He’s calling us to be aligned. He’s calling us to take our place so that we are able to equip and do what needs to be done when this harvest comes in. And it is coming in. I thank you, God.
I declare and decree over this ten year era. I thank you that we are going to see the wave. We thank you God for your Emancipation Proclamation. Lord, I thank you for the bells of liberty, Your liberty bells that are ringing across this nation, your sound out of the ground.
Lord, I thank you for liberty. I hear the bells of liberty. We hear your sound out of your mouth. We thank you God for the Peyload/Payload that is coming, in Jesus name.
Bart Rainey. Church, it’s time to increase, says the Spirit. It’s time to multiply. I think about these religious prayers we used to pray like, Father let me decrease while you increase. John the Baptist said that when he knew his ministry was at an end. He knew he would be executed. So Jesus, here’s the torch. You increase while I decrease.
Who did Jesus pass the torch to? Us. So we need to come with the mindset of not decreasing, but increasing in every way, and know His Spirit is within us if we’re to multiply and grow and fulfill your destiny.
Finish your race with a flourish, says the Spirit. He’s with you wherever your go. Don’t get discouraged. Don’t get flustered. Don’t get depressed. In me is fullness of joy. Joy unspeakable. So think multiplication, church. Think increase in every area, for what Jesus passed the torch to—all of us. So take it and run. Get that glory fire in your hand and run.
Betty?I will run. I will run.
Kimble Love. I was reminded of something that has happened to us all. You get ahead financially and things are going good, and then something breaks. Then whatever you had is lost. It’s a cycle that repeats and repeats.
Several years ago I was standing in my kitchen and something happened, and that thought came to my mind. Yeah, here it goes again. All of a sudden, something rose up on the inside of me. I slammed my fist down on the counter and said, No more, devil, are you doing this to me. When I did that, something broke in the spirit. There was a break. That very same day breakthrough came to my house and it wiped away everything the enemy had meant for harm. It was done in that instant. I had that picture.
We are in that season, where it’s time for us, the body of Christ, to tell the enemy enough is enough. Don’t put up with it any longer. He’s nothing. He is nothing. He will agitate you and irritate you if you let him do it. You need to treat him like the fly that he is and get the swatter and put him to an end.
Don’t put up with him buzzing around your head. Don’t put up with him lighting on your plate, on your food, on your stuff. Dispatch him now because you have the power; you have the authority; you have the anointing in the name of Jesus to dispatch him, to put him out and receive the fullness of your promise.
Lord, we thank you that you have anointed us for such a time as this. Lord, no longer will we put up, shut up, or back up; but we take hold of our promises in Jesus name. And cast the enemy out. We go forth in sonship in Jesus name. Amen.
Betty Love. Father, right here and right now we just thank you for the word you put in your sons’ mouths. Thank you guys.
We’re in an incredible time and season. I pray you know that. It’s not just a season for me. It’s a season for all of us. A kingdom reality on earth as it is in heaven. I was sharing with Beau Neill this morning and I knew he would take hold of this. I read in several translations this week about the sower and the seed. In one translation it said, A farmer went out to sow his seed expecting harvest.
For every seed that you and I sow, there is a harvest. This is a time where the Lord is realigning, resetting, and recalibrating us in His authority, His anointing, and His ability. Triple A service. AAA. AAA service.
Power Point. What you are seeing is the shape of a wheel. The Jerusalem Cross. It’s really a picture of Miracle City Global. There have been other spokes in this wheel at different times. We could lay out an entire wheel, complete. I want you to see the heart. I believe the word of the Lord that He has given us about this house. That this is His house. That this is His round house. This is His wheel house. This is His landing place. A place where He hangs His hat. This is Ezekiel’s wheel, if you will. The Chariot of the Lord. It’s a picture of the four living creatures in the book of Revelation that are before the throne of God, that continually cry out Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty. They cry Holy. This is His ride.
When God moves He is carried by these beings according to the book of Ezekiel when he encountered Him in the first chapter.
As we look at Miracle City, the center or hub of the wheel is the sanctuary. That’s where we are right now. That’s who you are. You are His sanctuary, His dwelling place. It’s all about the altar of the Lord. It’s about now worship, now word. None of the people who came and stood in this river had any idea I was going to call them to stand in the river and prophesy.
I believe we’re going to be doing that more and more as a house, you that are sitting in this room. Athelene, Pam, Beau, Lee, Mr. Floyd, Woody, John, JC and Craig, Jan, Sherry. Different ones are going to come and stand in the river and you’re going to prophesy out of the river. You’re going to speak what the Lord puts in your mouth and you don’t have to be afraid. If you don’t have anything in that moment, it’s okay. Say, I don’t have anything.
The Lord is mobilizing His house. The sanctuary at Miracle City Global is a place of habitation where His glory abides. And everything in Isaiah 61 is available to you. And there is an anointing in this place for you to receive that anointing and go outside of here because the Spirit of the Lord has anointed you to preach good news to the poor.
There is a message, there is a testimony in every born-again believer’s mouth. If you don’t think you have a testimony, this is a time where he wants you to begin a new beginning in you and pull you aside and open up the eyes of your understanding and bring revelation to you. And bring the anointing out of your life.
He wants you to know Him. I heard it said, It can be either hard or it can be easy. You can either lean into Him or be leaning out. I want to lean in. I want to sit at Your feet, drink from the cup in Your hand. Lean back against You.
The sanctuary at Miracle City Global is about now worship. If you were here when Judah went first out of the gate this morning, you know the sound of heaven and glory came in here, wave after wave after wave. Some of you, like me, were tuned in on live stream until you got here and it was wave after wave after wave. Even in the vehicle it was waves of his glory. When we stood in here I’m like, Lord we are undone. We are in over our head.
The now worship, now word, now works. In the sanctuary, in the presence of the Lord is where you get seeded and supplied and sent from. I want to be sent from His presence. I want to stand in the glory with you and worship until we are there. There is a place called ‘there’ in the realm of the spirit where you have connected with Him in intimacy. And your ear is opened to hear Him, and you are discerning His presence. And He opens your spiritual senses.
Rosemary said when she was driving in today there was incense coming up out of the place, out of the city, when she entered in. And as she got closer, she recognized it was coming out of here. It’s called worship. It’s the place Kevin prophesied about. It’s what the Father is seeking, worshipers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. He is calling you again again to come to the now of heaven and let a worship come up out of your spirit man like you’ve not experienced heretofore. Because there’s more, there’s more, there’s more and there’s increase in the house of God. Expect the increase. Expect the increase.
What did you come here for today? Did you come out of religious duty? Or did you come because you wanted to see His face and hear words from His mouth and be a witness of what you’ve seen and heard because you know you’re chosen? Expect to encounter Him in the sanctuary. Expect it to be a safe place.
The arms of Miracle City Global. I saw this years ago. I saw Judah, Dan, Ephraim, and Reuben. When the children of Israel camped in the wilderness, if you were to have an aerial view, the way the tribes were laid out would have been in the shape of a cross. Judah and Dan and Ephraim and Reuben were the standard bearers. Behind them or with them are three tribes camped on every side. Twelve tribes of Israel.
When I think of Dan I think about the Judge. I think about a Daniel and a Joseph. There is an administrative arm of Miracle City Global. The hand cannot say to the foot, I don’t need you. We need everyone in this house functioning and serving the Lord in your portion and in your part. What we’re doing in this season is mobilizing the army. Everyone that is present in this house, unless there is something that you just cannot cannot cannot, and we can get around the cannot, you’re going to have an opportunity to be on a prayer team and a prophetic team.
If you feel like you’re not yet in a position to do that, you can stand in and do what we call shadowing until He overshadows you and you’re not intimidated by it anymore. If you’re off a little bit, we can fix that. There is not anything that God cannot correct in us, me first. I believe that He is dropping a plumb line of His truth and His righteousness and His peace and His faith and His salvation and His word; and prayer and intercession and declarations and decrees in us like we’ve never experienced before.
Dan is the administration arm. Reuben, the man, is the family. See, we’re a family. We are the body of Christ. Jesus is the head. It’s what I said. The hand can’t say to the foot, I don’t need you. Family first. It’s about relationship. When I feel the Lord drawing me as the apostle here at Miracle City, He’s drawing me to this house, to this place, to you, everything that has to do with family. We’re talking children and youth. We talking about mobilizing the generations.
I’m so thankful Mr. Floyd is here today. We have the generations in the house. Mr. Floyd is 90. Glory to God. We have 70 year olds in here, 60 year olds, 50 year olds, 40 year olds, 30 year olds, 20 year olds. We have teens in here, adolescents and in-betweens. And we have the cradles in here. From the youngest to 90. Three to four generations to shift things. We’re ready to kingdom build. It’s about everyone being mobilized.
It’s about the Garretts and the Lily Graces. Since Lily Grace could hold a flag, when it was bigger than she was big, she was worshiping in the altar. Both of them didn’t have to be taught. It was caught. It was part of their destiny. It was in them. We have children that see. We have a Garrett that says to his parents he feels like he needs to go to a particular spot because somebody needs Jesus. Children that are dreaming dreams.
As a leader I never talk down to children or youth, never have, never will. They are significant. It’s not saying they’re not taught to respect authority and honor authority, but aren’t you and I? Aren’t we to honor one another? If you treat them like they have a junior Holy Spirit, they will never come up into who they are. Wisdom and age and eldership is honored. But it’s not the age of a man that determines. It’s the Spirit of the Lord. So don’t dismiss someone if they’re a child. The word of God in their mouth might very well change your life.
So we’re about generationally building. We’re seeing that in our house already with the Bass children and the Boswell children and other children in this house. We’re seeing it. Generationally building. Praise God. The Long family. You’re seeing it in our family. We want to kingdom build generationally.
This is just an introduction. If you look at Judah, it’s the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. It’s the worship arm and ministry of Miracle City Global. All of these visions, these arms, feed into the sanctuary.
The heart of God, we believe, in this city is 24/7 worship. I believe from the time the Lord gave us the vision for 24/7 worship, we have shifted into a new era and a new decade. And it’s not house of prayer as we know it. It’s a functioning ekklesia that brings the legislation of heaven onto the earth and so much more. Ultimately, our heart’s desire is to see worship coming out of the sanctuary 24/7.
We have an assignment in the land today. We’re going to walk the land. If you know this is your house, we have a land assignment here today. We’re going to come back and prophesy over this region. We are already seeing transformation. When we came to this place it was the most depressed, rundown place.
For the last three years we have been releasing the worship of heaven and we are beginning to see transformation. The land is being cleaned out. Buildings are being restored. Paint is going on the buildings next to us. You’re seeing parking lots and land cleared. I didn’t even know there was a foundation over here on this other street. He is going to clean up this place because this is His Glory Valley. You have had a cause and effect.
We are not the only ones because there are praying people all around here. And there are those that have gone before us and sown seed. But we have come into this place. The Lord said to me this morning this is His Zion City. I’m not talking about Glory of Zion. I’m telling you that He said this is a Zion City. It is going to reflect Hebrews 12. You have come to Mt. Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem.
In the Judah arm we’re talking media, recording, music rooms, dance, banners, flags, paints, pottery, everything to do with art, any medium of art. We’re also talking worship—dance, drama. Any expression of movement that has to do with worship is going to come out of that arm.
In the very beginning we saw partnering with the different areas and being relational in our community. There are children and people in this area that would never have the opportunity to take a dance class or music lesson. But we’re going to do that. We’re going to be committed, not just to children, because there are adults around here that have a dream, and they have a sound, and a song going on the inside of them and it needs to be unlocked.
Some of them have had a dream to be a guitarist or a drummer or some kind of musician. How is all of that going to happen? You’re it.
Then look at Ephraim, the ox. This is the helps arm of the ministry. Our heart is to see people come into financial freedom. There are people in our lives, maybe some of you in this room, who need basic life skills. I’m not trying to be unkind, but there are people in our society today who don’t have them. They’ve never been taught basic life skills. There are those already among us who have a heart for equipping people with life skills.
Education. We want to partner on the mountain of education. Ultimately, as the harvest comes into Miracle City, if someone doesn’t have a high school education, we want to help you get your GED. We want to partner in our community. There are community colleges, all kinds of opportunities in our region. There are things available, grants available. If you are about getting your education, there’s a way to do that.
I’m not just talking about academic education. I’m talking about the school of the Spirit that will come out of this house to equip. Healing rooms. How many of you know you have a healing anointing? Chris and Stacy Vowell who are aligned with us in Philadelphia are already functioning in healing rooms.
Counseling. We have master degree counselors in our house even now. We also have people who are anointed to counsel through the gifts of the Spirit to bring integrated healing. Fellowship hall, kitchen. All of this is part of the wheel.
When you come into Miracle City and into the sanctuary on Sunday morning, the first thing to greet you is the Worship Team. They don’t do a weekly practice because they are so geographically spread out. They come in here at 7:15 on Sunday morning, many times with new songs. How other than God Almighty can they come together, and then you and I and we enter into what God has for us? It has to be God.
At 8:00 here come the intercessors. Praise God. Then people begin to gather. You’ll see Donna Bass and Wanda Sumrall, different ones busy over here (at the tables), Shelly and Brenda, and all of you who bring food in. People are working behind the scenes and you don’t even know it. Laurie going into the bathrooms to wipe off the counters. Nobody told her to do that. I just happened to find out. It’s called being family. It’s called being mobilized. It’s called nobody saying, That’s not my job.
If you come on Wednesday night, you’ll find me scrubbing toilets. If you can’t scrub a toilet, you can’t hold a microphone. Just kidding. (laughter) How many are going to line up this afternoon to clean the bathrooms before we go?
8:30 Judah goes first. Why? Because praise plows. Praise is going to plow the atmosphere. Go outside and look around, and even look inside this building compared to where we’ve come from. Praise plows. Praise will plow you. Ask Silas and Paul about being in prison. They had been beaten, locked up, chained and shackled, but in the midst of it they let out a hymn of praise. Their Hallelujah wasn’t gone. As a result, all the prisoners’ chains broke off and the prison doors came open. Praise is going to plow the atmosphere. It will plow you. It will plow your neighbor. It will plow the region. And it will plow the enemy. Praise plows. The Word of God says so. Judah must plow. So Judah goes first.
When the tribes of Israel begin to move, Judah goes first. Have a conversation with Jehoshaphat. Who went out first? They were facing three major armies and the word of the Lord was to put the praisers out, put the singers out. That would mean this whole worship team, Lily Grace, Garrett, Brenda, Laurie, Rosemary, all the ones that come, Nancy. You’re in it, too. They’re going out. Give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His love endures forever.
The Core. Around 9:15 is Core Training. This is equipping. Five-fold equipping. We have intermissions. It’s another part to come. At the head of the month, Rosh Chodesh, Brad brings the word. We felt there were things the Lord wanted to do and he brought the teaching on Wednesday night. You can pick that up on facebook. Core is our leadership training. Right now Anna is teaching on the prophetic. It is really rich and good. Everything we do is on our Facebook pages and our website.
Danette and Michelle and Anna keep us rolling with administration. I’m thankful for them. I like what Danette said. I said we follow the Hebraic in that we celebrate first fruits every month. Danette said, We don’t follow the Hebraic. It follows us. I love it. What do I mean by that? God has a calendar that has never changed. Throughout the Word of God we know there is the Head of the Year in September/October. But when He set Israel in their redemptive cycle with Passover beginning at Nissan and brought them up out of Egypt, He told Moses to mark off the months.
In the New Testament, Paul said, We do by the Spirit what Israel does by tradition. You could put away the Hebraic calendar and I guarantee you, you would be doing and saying things, if you are walking with the Lord, you would be tracking right with what He is doing prophetically. Because the calendar and the meaning and everything that goes into each month, we actually become the prophetic picture of it. It is what we can experience in our lives personally.
We celebrate all the feasts, but as Jesus, our Passover Lamb. Pentecost. The Head of the Year. Tabernacles. The Feast of Trumpets. I hope you understand this by now. This river—this is my life as an apostolic prophet. I can have the best-laid plans and it is out the window. I gave Michelle three powerpoints this morning and we’ve gotten to maybe three slides.
You either want what He wants and you have heaven, or you do it your way, your agenda, and you’re not going to have what He wants to do. Sometimes I have way in advance where we’re going. Other times I don’t know until I’m standing here with you.
We have a prophetic altar. It speaks. It prophesies different things by what’s on it. For a week or more out from Head of the Year I couldn’t see anything for this altar. Didn’t know what was going to be there. On that morning I knew I was to bring fruit, and flowers I had grown in my own garden. I thought I would call Nancy to help me get the fruit from the store.
The Lord said, You absolutely are not. That is not her assignment. It’s yours. Okay! Kimble had gone the night before and there was no good fruit at our regular store, so I go to Walmart and there were bags of apples, the best you’ve ever seen. He said, Did I not tell you this was your assignment? I just started loading my cart and in 5-10 minutes, there’s the altar, with different ones helping me. It’s called a gift. I’m boasting in Him.
He is saying to you and me, there is an anointing, an authority, and an ability in you that I am bringing out in this season, a fresh start, a new beginning. It’s time to forget your troubles, forget those things that are behind, and like Joseph who named his son Manasseh said, I’m going to forget my troubles and the troubles of my father’s house. I am leaping up and leaping out. It’s Forward Movement time.
Miracle City Global Alignments. Love Ministries and Miracle City Global are aligned nationally with Dutch Sheets’ ministry and Global Spheres under Dr. Chuck Pierce. We’re not under that ministry but we are a part of their fellowship. They are an alignment for us. We are not a Zion connect church. But we are in alignment and relationship.
Kimble and I are part of Global Spheres International Ministries. We were commissioned by Church Pierce and his ministry team last year out at Global Spheres. Anna, Nita and I have been commissioned through NEI, Network Ekklesia International. These are national and international ministries that we are aligned with. I’m not showing all of our alignments today, but I want you to know that we support Israel. Holy Spirit has directed us to sow first fruits offerings into these ministries every month, personally, Love Ministries, and Miracle City—out of all three of these we sow seed. We also sow into Glory of Zion Jerusalem with Daniel and Amber Pierce. Because we want to be a blessing to Israel.
We are part of Mississippi Moving Relational Council. Marion Neill is part of that council. Kimble and I are part of that council. It’s made up of apostles and apostolic leaders from across the state of Mississippi. We co-hosted the Mississippi Prophetic Summit, the launch of the ekklesia for the state of Mississippi. Those are statewide meetings that we have co-sponsored with leaders from across the state.
We have also had the opportunity as a house to partner with Billy Joe and Ruthie Young, Repairers of the Breach, doing the worship at all three of our universities—Mississippi State, University of Southern Mississippi, and the University of Mississippi in Oxford this year. Again, not all the alignments are on here.
Faith Ventures. This is where our stop is today. The rest are not yet here with us. I did want to do this today. Faith Ventures Evangelism Association. Faith Ventures was founded in 1996 by Beau and Marion Neill with a vision to witness to and implement the gospel of Jesus Christ in the state of Mississippi, the United States, and the world. They have a global missions ministry and we are so thankful they are aligned with us.
The primary focus for 21 years has been the nation of Cuba where God has used Beau to coordinate a network of pastors and leaders across the island. Six years ago this network established a traveling seminary to train pastors and their families. Three years ago the same network formed an association for the development of Cuba to address every mountain of culture and help prepare the next generation to steward freedom in Cuba when it comes.
Not only are they ministering in the nation of Cuba, but they are generationally building. Are you surprised they’re aligned with us?
Beau is caretaker of God’s creation. He has been associated with agriculture directly or indirectly for 50 years. Over the past ten years the Lord has revealed principles of increase to him which he has written in a soon-to-be published book on man’s relationship with God’s creation entitled, Seedtime and Harvest.
They came in 11/11/18 and I want you to come again and minister that word. I believe when you come again, you’re going to bring it with increase. It is about stewarding the land. I hope he can walk this land with us. I know he’s walked it before. We’re going to walk this land today and it’s going to recognize us. It’s already responding to the worship and the word that’s been released.
Marion Neill is an apostolic leader in the state of Mississippi. She currently serves as coordinator of Delta Force, an ekklesia in the Mississippi Delta, and as co-coordinator of Mississippi Governmental Prayer Alliance. As a Mississippi coordinator for Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network she is a prophetic intercessor who has led intercession for all three campus worship events in Mississippi from 2017-2019 with Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets and the rest of the leaders in our state.
I will tell you this. She won’t leave you. The first and only time I went to Israel, Marion was on that flight with me. There was a mixup and supposedly there were no seats on that plane for me. We were boarding and she refused to get on the plane. She said, I’m not getting on the plane until you find her a seat, and she didn’t. Because she said, I’m not leaving my wingman.
The commitment with both of them goes deep and I am thankful. If they say they’re going to do it, they’re going to do it. Beau and Marion live in Hollandale, Mississippi. They have two children and a granddaughter. They are ordained by Repairers of the Breach Ministries and commissioned by Global Spheres International. They are joyfully aligned with Miracle City Global Ministries in Hattiesburg.
As I close, with more to come, I want to leave this with you. God has appointed you in this place for such a time as this. Some of you today know your alignment is here. Others of you don’t know yet. I can tell you this. He is going to build the Core. And our assignment in this season that’s upon us is Isaiah 61, but we are about to major on that fourth verse. Because we are going to restore, renew and rebuild.
If you want to know what time it is, it’s kingdom building time. We’re in a decade of building with the words of our mouth. Of accessing heaven and bringing it into the earth.
I want Beau to come. We are receiving an offering for Faith Ventures. The didn’t ask for it, but we want to. Beau is about to go on a trip to Cuba.
Beau Neill. I will be in Cuba from December 3-10. It’s always a treat going into Cuba. You never know what to expect. Sometimes you get held up at customs going in and they’ll give you an interview of what you want to say and do. Most of the time it cannot be in a church. Being in a church in Cuba is participating in church services. I have not ever been able to get a religious visa to go into Cuba. It’s always been rejected. So I go in on a tourist visa. It’s okay for the United States to do that, but it’s not okay for the Cuban government. So I cannot go inside a church. We go to the church. We go around the church. It’s been fine like that.
I won’t take credit for any of the stuff that’s gone on in Cuba. Only to say that when I first started going in, you could not go across the province line. It like you couldn’t go from Mississippi to Alabama. You had to have papers to do that. I could get papers to do that. So I began to connect pastors with other pastors, and that’s where the network came out of.
The network over the last five years has gone under a lot of scrutiny from the government and some persecution. They’ve been fined, had land confiscated, had equipment confiscated, such like that. I’ve told them, Guys, it would be better if I would take what I raise and just send it to you. They said, No, when you come you bring us hope. You bring the people hope. So that’s what I do. I go down there.
I can’t share a thing, but I can smile. And I can act goofy. And they like that. And it brings hope to them. I have seen an increase in hope over that last 20+ years. If you’ll seed into this ministry I will take it. It will cost me $700-$1000 for transportation to Cuba. I’ll have probably two pastors and a translator with me everywhere I go. This will cost $100-$150 a day. I’ll be there seven days.
I always like to seed into the Association for the Development of Cuba. It buys supplies and what they need and it gives them hope. The three men operating the association, I always try to give them something so they can sustain life for the next year. The average wage in Cuba is $18 a month. You’ve got to supply that. Marion and I have supported pastors down there at $10 a month for probably 20 years. Even when I couldn’t go into Cuba—i was out of Cuba for 2007-2014—i was able to send in sustenance to them through a pathway through Miami.
I was going to build a slideshow of some of the guys and they said they didn’t want their faces shown in the United States because somebody would recognize them and it would bring trouble to them. God bless you. He will make a way.
Betty. We want to sow into this ministry because there is a harvest coming out of Cuba.
Kimble. Father, we just thank you for what you’ve done today. We thank you for the people you have yoked us with. Thank you for the ministries we’ve aligned with. Father, I pray you would just touch this offering and supernaturally bring multiplication, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing. I just declare that all of Beau’s needs are met as he goes and ministers to Cuba, in Jesus name.
Afternoon Training and Equipping
Betty. Isaiah 61. You need to make this personal. You would not be part of Miracle City Global if this was not part of your vision mandate. This is the commission of the Lord, a kingdom commission for the sons of God. I believe it is his mission statement, the mission statement of Messiah, of Jesus.
:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
We know what we have been called to do. I believe we have stepped to this today. Early this morning I read Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, all of those books. What came alive to me is that you had Haggai and Zechariah prophesying His word and instruction. He was giving them the promise. What are you, oh mighty mountain in the face of Zerubbabel? You’re going to become a rugged plain. You’re going to rejoice when you see the plumb line. Those were war words and promises they had given them for the rebuilding of the Temple and the restoration of the city. And the restoration and the rebuilding of the wall. In Ezra, the rebuilding of he Temple, about chapter four they talk about the opposition. The same thing in the rebuilding of the wall was opposition.
I don’t know why we think there’s not going to be opposition. My position is that we are not going to be moved by opposition. We’re on the offensive and we’re going to take the opposition out.
The hand of the Lord is stretched out, taking out the resistance now. When the Lord says it’s your land, it’s our land. God has not changed His mind. He is about reclaiming and restoring what’s His. The history in this land, if you were here in the beginning when we got this building, it was serious business. It was really comical to watch some of you walk in here.
Every now and then I come up for air. I come down to the earth and my eyes open, and I think, We could replace that, etc. I don’t think I ever saw it like some of you did. In a dream, in a vision X marks the spot. We had spied out the land and we knew this was our land. This was the place. This was the place the prophet prophesied about.
The Hub City would be a hub, a wheelhouse. He prophesied that in 2010, many years after I had drawn the wheel. Everyone had left this side of the city. Churches had left. I didn’t think about being afraid to be down here. I’ve never been afraid in this building.
What has happened is that we’ve seen the worship and the word and the works. Because the land is responding. I know why the land is responding. It’s because the presence of God has come into this land. And we are seeing transformation. We’ve got a brand new blacktop out here. A new road going through.
The Lord began to speak to me that we’re in an Isaiah 61:4 place. The vision as we move into 2020, He is going to give you personal vision. Your personal vision is going to come alive. You’re not going to be waiting and wondering, What am I supposed to do? Where am I supposed to be? How am I going to do this? He is going to give you the ABC123.
We are going to teach you how to get a vision, how to write it, and how to actually put feet to it. If you’re not putting feet to what God has called you to personally, then it’s going to be hard to put feet to what God has called us to corporately. Everyone has a portion and a part to play. That is here, those connected and aligned with us at Miracle City and Love Ministries. It’s also about our state and our region, our territory. It’s about the church of Mississippi, the ekklesia. It’s a new day and it’s a new decade and God has a new language for us.
Isaiah 61:4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
I believe that’s where we are. Marion and Beau being land takers and Beau being a land man, I asked him to share about the land and how it recognizes you, those keys. We are partnering with them this month on the Mississippi Delta Tour, the Dawn of a New Era, Unlocking the Treasuries. That’s what the Lord gave me yesterday. You can’t get it until He gives it. He gave it so He’s going to do it. I didn’t realize what I said went with what he had written in his book.
Beau Neill. My book I’ve written is Seedtime and Harvest and I’m going to read out of chapter two. I retired two years ago, and 6 days ago I was asked to come out of retirement and run a farm. I accepted that position so I’m now back into full-time farm management. Betty prophesied over me 10-15 days ago when we were here, I see door opening for you. It took three days! That’s an open door I guess you could say.
Chapter Two. Seedtime and Harvest
Adam’s relationship with God was such that he walked with his creator and talked with him face to face. God told Adam and Eve how to live life in the Garden and how to avoid sin. Their relationship with the Lord and with the land was one of harmony and oneness. That relationship on both counts was severed through sin.
Adam’s son, Abel, was murdered by his brother, Cain. Abel’s blood cried out to God from the ground. The significance of his spilled blood is greater than murder only. There is a broader implication for the land as well. God revealed this key in Numbers 35:33. So you shall not pollute the land where you are, for blood defiles the land and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that was shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. You’ve boxed yourself in right there with no way out, except by the blood of him who shed it.
In this verse, God warned his people of the consequences of bloodshed on the land itself. There can be no cleansing of the land except by atoning blood. That atoning blood was shed on the cross of Christ. It sufficed to remove the curse on the land and its lack of strength, or in that case, a lack of yield, a lack of capacity. Jesus’ blood penetrated the ground just as Abel’s did. But his blood made atonement.
Whereas Abel’s blood cried out judgment, Christ’s blood cried out mercy. Whereas Abel’s blood cried out curse, Christ’s blood cried out blessing. Whereas Able’s blood cried out blood guilt, Christ’s blood answered atonement.
So Jesus fulfilled all that was spoken of him in the Old Testament to the law and the prophets. He came that we could once more enjoy an individual relationship and peace with God. He gave us authority and the promise of abundant life. He sent the Holy Spirit as our empowering guide. Christ’s shed blood is our atonement and also fulfills the requirement of Numbers 35 for the cleansing of the land.
Jesus’ blood releases creation from the curse it came under through Adam’s sin and Abel’s murder. When we apply his blood and its atoning redemptive power, the land is released once more to yield its increase and strength. Abel’s blood cried out from the ground, but Jesus’ blood speaks of better things.
Betty. Now do you get a better picture of why, when we go out, we’re going to be releasing the power of the blood? The voice of the blood? We are going to agree and pray before we go, but our walk is a blood walk.
Beau. Power, power, wonder-working power, in the blood of the Lamb. This is where I come to the conclusion. However—a conjunction that explains something more. However, in order for the land to yield its increase once again, I believe the mature son of God is needed to speak in faith and release it from bondage.
Look at it like this. All the scriptures I’ve shared with you are clues to a treasure chest. By following them, you’ll find the treasure, but that treasure chest is locked. The treasure is there. You cannot get into it. You have to take action to remove the lock and enjoy the benefits of the treasure. Likewise, the strength and the increase of the land are there, but they are still locked up. It will take three keys to unlock them.
1) A spirit-filled relationship with the Father through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ.
That means you can’t come to church and act like you’re all sanctified and holy, and go out and raise hell during the week. You’ve got to walk the walk and you can’t deviate from that because people see you whenever, wherever you are, and they are judging you as you walk.
I went to pay a bill at a restaurant I was in one time. The guy in front of me was paying his bill. He was an old guy and he pulled out his wallet to pay with cash and a $20 bill fell out on the floor behind him. So I put my foot over it to hide it. He paid the bill and when he moved where I could bend over and pick it up, I said, Sir, excuse me, you dropped this. And he, I didn’t drop anything. I said, Oh yes you did. You dropped this $20 bill.
He said, Let me tell you something. I didn’t drop anything out of my wallet. I would have seen it if I had dropped it. I said, Yes sir you sure would have, but you missed this one. He said, I did not. I said, I tell you what. Do you know how much money you came in the restaurant with? He said, I sure do. I said, Count it. He said, Why would I count my money when I know what I have? I said, Because you’ve got $20 missing.
So he pulled out his wallet and counted his money and said, By cracky, there’s $20 missing out here. I said, Yeah. It fell out of your wallet onto the floor and I’m giving it back to you. He said, Well, thank you. I said, You’re welcome. I paid mine and walked away. As I was walking back to the table, there was a lady that grabbed me as I walked by. She stopped me and I said, Yes, ma’am.
She said, I saw what you did. That’s a very very undefined statement. You need to be aware that you shouldn’t say statements like that because people don’t need to know what you did see or what you didn’t see. But she saw what I did. I didn’t have any idea what it was. I said, What was that? She said, I saw you give that money the man dropped. I said, You saw that? She said, Yeah. Why did you do that? I said, It wasn’t my money.
She said, He didn’t have any idea. In fact, he argued with you about that money. I said, It wasn’t my money. That was somebody else’s property. I know who it belonged to, so I was going to stand him down and give it to him. She said, I wouldn’t have done that. I said, Well that’s your concern, but I reflect the glory of God, and what’s right is right and won’t ever be wrong. Left is always going to be left. Right is always right. There are no white lies. There are no gray areas. He said it correctly. Right will always be right. I had to do what was right. That was a lesson
Second story. This past fall we had truck farmer right up the road from us. He sells crates of corn, 48 ears to a crate, a thousand crates to a truck. I was coming home zipping down the road and I see this guy pulled over on the side of the road with a bunch of crates off of the truck. He’s sitting there looking up at the ratchet strap that was broken. I knew he didn’t need any help because he knew he had a ratchet strap broken. So I went on down the road.
About a mile down the road there are probably 2,000 ears of corn blocking one lane of Hwy 61. I said, This will never do. So I pulled over, put my flashers on, and started throwing corn over on the edge of the road. A little 45 year old lady drove up behind me and said, Man, I’m going to have some corn tonight. I said, No Ma’am, you’re not going to have any corn tonight. She said, What do you mean? I said, This is somebody else’s property and they’re going to be here in the next 15 minutes to pick it up.
She said, You’re telling me this is not free corn? I said, I’m telling you it’s somebody else’s property. And I can’t let you have it. She said, Well, I’ll help you pull it off the road. I said, Thank you. I tell you what. When they come here, I’ll ask if we can have some. Alright?
In about three minutes we had cleaned the whole road off and put it on the side, and two guys drove up. They didn’t speak any English but I spoke Spanish and they did, too. We helped them crate the corn and put it on the truck, and I said, Sir, can you give me a box for my friend? He said, I’ll give you two boxes. So she got corn. I’m not a big corn eater, but Marion is, so we had some corn. Brought home corn for all of us. It’s doing right all the time. That makes a difference.
In walking this land, I’ve seen that the spirit-filled relationship is critical in you because the Holy Spirit is the empowering guide to take you into all truth. And you’ve got to be steadfast in that truth. You’re a guardian of the truth when you’re out there. It’s on you and the people see it. That’s why you are raised to do right, and you do right, because it’s in you. It is in you through the help of the Holy Spirit.
2) An understanding of authority in Christ and manifestation as a mature son of God.
You’ve got to understand the authority that you have in Jesus as a manifested son of God. I don’t want any of the glory, but I’ve been able to stand and tell storms to stop and they have. I have asked for rains to come and they have. I have asked for storms to dissipate and they have.
In September Tropical Storm Barry formed. Beaches were being shut down from Lake Pontchartrain moving toward the east because of toxic water from algae bloom. Fresh water, salt water, oxygen depletion, algae, it all works together. I worked in the beach service in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama, for three years. I love that place. That’s the frontier. That’s where the Lord said the waves could come this far and no further. I walked it. I knew the interactions.
I stayed friends with the owners down there and I called Ted and told him, There are beaches being closed systematically coming your way. It got as far as Pascagoula. They never closed any in Alabama. I asked him, What would it take to clean these things up? He said, Beau, I’ll tell you exactly what it would take. It would take a tropical disturbance that needs to form right off the edge of Alabama and move west. I said, Ted, I set myself in agreement with you. The Lord is going to do that for us. He said, I agree with you.
We didn’t think anything about it, and three days later guess what formed off the coast of Alabama? Tropical Storm Barry. And it moved west. And it cleansed the beaches. They even reopened the beaches in Mississippi a short time after that. It’s one of the manifestations you get with the authority you’ve been given.
You may be spirit-filled, but if you don’t walk in that authority, what are you doing? If you can’t walk out there and you can’t speak to that thing and say, Be cleaned up in the name of Jesus, and have it happen, (what are you doing?) It may not happen the first time but that’s not your responsibility. That’s the Lord’s responsibility. He’s the one who is going to give you the power to speak it or decree it into existence.
3) Relationship with the land. The land is going to recognize you because that’s what it says in Romans. All of creation is groaning, so you want to have that relationship. If you don’t have that relationship with the land it’s going to know it. And it’s not going to do anything with/for you because you don’t have that relationship.
Before you were filled with the Spirit it didn’t work for you. Before you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior you were lost. That’s a fact. So these things all fit together. The land is not going to recognize you unless you are who you say you are.
The Lord told Abraham to walk the length and the breadth of the land I’m going to give to you. It wasn’t for Abraham to see the land. It was for the land to see Abraham. What was Abraham called? Friend of God. What’s going to happen is that it’s going to come forth. So Abraham had authority. He had authority in the land. And the land responded to him.
His son Isaac had authority in the land and the land responded to him. He prospered until he became very rich. I’m not into worldly possessions but if it comes my way I’ll have to figure out how to give it away. But that’s the way that works. All I know is that this stuff works. It works for me as a farmer. It should work for you as a landowner, whether you own your house or rent houses. If you sell cars, you need to walk that block and decree about every one of those cars. Whatever you do, if you grow flowers. If you teach children you need to speak into their lives every day.
If you do music—you guys are awesome. What they do is like Betty said today about Jehoshaphat who sent the singers out in front of the battle. When you stand up here to speak and you guys (Worship Team) are back there playing, it brings power to the one that’s speaking. Whatever flows out of that speaker’s mouth, you are enabling them by what you do. And you guys out there. I had a Baptist background. You don’t raise your hand or say Amen. Betty gave me a hard look when I yelled out Glory! (laugher) You guys may not be responding as much as you need to! (laughter) I’m an Amen guy. I’m a Hallelujah guy. I’m a Glory guy.
I was at work. I took over the farm on Wednesday. The first thing, somebody said something, I said Hallelujah. Even though I worked with everyone of them five or six years earlier, they all knew that was in me, and they all looked at me and said, We haven’t heard that in a long time. We’re bringing about restoration to a place that needs some changes made; and we’re going to make those changes.
Never underestimate the power and authority that you have in those three things. If you just look at everything as a treasure in a treasure chest, you’ve got to be the one to unlock it. You’ve got three keys. I know you’ve all seen those puzzles where you open one, then there’s one in there, and then there’s one in there. It’s just like that. It’s the same way.
But it’s critical, critical, critical for the first two. Then when you get in that land situation, or your work situation, or your work environment, you change it because of your presence. Not because of who you are, but whose you are. So when you walk into that convenience store, I can change the environment in that C-Store just by my presence and I expect it to respond. I have an earnest expectation. Thank you.
1) A Spirit-filled relationship with the Father through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
What does it say? The demons believe and tremble. Sometimes we believe and don’t tremble. You need to keep your trembling in you. There’s a reverence there that you need to do. When I was born I was raised right. It’s a Southern slang saying. When you’re raised right, you say Yes Ma’am, No Sir, you endeavor to do good, you went straight and narrow, and everything was good. So I do. I believe in Jesus. I believe in God. I believe in the Holy Spirit. But I had never established a relationship with them. I was lost. But that Spirit-filled relationship is a ’t’ that’s got to be crossed and an ‘i’ that’s got to be dotted. You’ve got to do that. That’s the first step.
2) Understanding the authority in Christ and the manifestation of a mature son of God.
In the Beatitudes it says that a son of God is a peace maker. The peacemakers shall be called sons of God. Not a peace keeper. You don’t just go with the flow. You’ve got to step out and stop the flow. You can’t put up with this. If I’m going to go make war, I’m going to go make war and I’m going to bring peace. I’m not going to try to be a peace keeper. Understand? Peace keepers get killed all the time because it’s not right. You’ve got to stand up and be that manifested son of God. You’ve got to understand your authority and manifest yourself.
3) You’ve got have a relationship with the land. You’ve got to have that relationship. Glory.
Betty. He said you have to have relationship with the land. When I ministered in Gulf Shores the Lord told me, If you’re going to have authority in the land, you must be married to it. That’s covenant. We’re standing in the covenant month when the flood came. God made covenant with Noah because he found grace or righteousness in the eyes of the Lord. God established seedtime and harvest and that He would never destroy the earth by flood—in this season, in the month of Cheshvan.
So it’s about the anointing and the authority that God has put in you.
X marks the spot. Being in the right place is very important.
Example: The Lord sent Isaac to Gerar in a time of famine. Because of his relationship with the Lord and because he was in the right place, and because it was a generational blessing—his father had already been in the land. The land had already recognized Abraham. The land recognized Isaac so much so that he sowed in a time of famine and reaped a 100 fold return. That’s, everybody else’s land is dying but yours is producing. Generational Recognition. The land will recognize your inheritance. Even if the law won’t, the land will. This is our land because God said so. X marks the spot.
Joshua 1:1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun,
The letter that goes with this month is NUN, representative of the number 50, which is Jubilee. Jubilee is about land recovery. So it’s time to recover our land and recover lost inheritances. Joshua is a land man.
He said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aid
Where did Joshua spend his training time? In the tent. Where do you become a land taker? In the tent developing relationship with the Lord—with the Father, with the Son, with the Holy Spirit.
:2 Moses my servant is dead. Now you and all these people get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give them.
To the Israelites. Here’s the promise.
I will give you every place where you set your foot as I promised Moses.
This is our promise. I will give you every place where you set your foot as I promised Moses. How many of you have ever received that word as a promise from the Lord? Some of you in here.
Today I decree and declare as a representative of the kingdom of God and your alignment with this house, that as we go out and walk this land today and even as you go home and walk your land, I am decreeing and declaring, This is the land that the Lord loves. Mississippi is the land the Lord loves. This nation is the land the Lord loves. And He has a plan to bring awakening, reformation and transformation.
He is bringing revival. He is raising up a righteous remnant who will be willing to be married to the land, who will occupy their territories, tents, and treasuries to see His kingdom come. So that when the world looks, they see Him. They see something different. They want to know what you have.
Then He says, I’ll give you every place where the soles of your feet tread, where you set your foot. Then He says, your territory. This is very important. We need to know our spheres of authority. I don’t have authority to go and do whatever I want to do whenever I want to do it. We talked about staying in our lane. It’s important. We need to know where our territory is. He defines it to Joshua.
:4 Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
At 27-28 years old as I received the mantle of the apostolic prophetic anointing, when the Lord released that call, one of the first words that he spoke to me 30 years ago was, As I was with Joshua, so I will be with you. As I was with Moses. You are a Joshua. You are a land taker. It’s a promise. It’s my promise. I know that. It’s personal. But I know if you are connected it’s your promise, too. It’s corporate.
So He has a territory and a sphere of influence for you. We as a house stepped into a nation’s influence when we took the 70 Day Decree Mandate. That was a God thing. And that’s not the end of it.
The promise here is, Everywhere you set the soles of your feet. Your territory will be this. Then He says, No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you. Is that not what Jesus said in Hebrews? He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He’ll never leave us nor forsake us. It’s a promise.
:5 Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
He is saying, Be strong and courageous. Then he goes on.
:6 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you. Do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
You’re going to see this three times in this passage. Before Moses died he told Joshua, Be strong and courageous. The Lord wants you to be strong and courageous. He wants you to be strong and very courageous. Why? Because what the enemy tries to do is bring fear and discouragement. Those are two strategies. Oppression and depression, to keep you from entering into your land, your possession. It’s the trick of the enemy.
If you read out of Ezra and Nehemiah, they even hired counselors to frustrate the builders, to weaken their hands, to cause the work to stop. Sanballat and Tobiah said, Oh come down off the wall, Nehemiah. Let’s go meet out in the Plain of Ono, because we want to talk to you about this wall you’re building. And praise God, Nehemiah had a clue because he said, Oh no! That’s how blatant the enemy is sometimes. He says, Just come out into the Plain of Ono. Get a big billboard. Oh No! Don’t think so! Not happening! Oh no. Then here is a key.
:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
It’s about renewing your heart and your mind. How can a young man keep his way pure? Because I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You. To move into your inheritance and your possession, you’re going to have to live in relationship with Him. And it can’t be on one minute and off the next. We need to repent quick and get up and go again and keep moving.
Our house word and for me is Launch, Navigator, and what Beau said. We’ve got the Navigator on board. We’ve got Holy Spirit telling us what to do. When we walk the land today I want your ear open to what Holy Spirit is saying about the land. He has given us words that this block is ours. I want the block.
When we started here, on the back of the property, that house was a drug house. But we prayed and even ministered to those guys. Kimble fed them at Sons of Thunder. The Lord was long-suffering. After about a year I drive in one day and He says, I want the whole block. So either they’re going to change or they’re going. They’re gone.
It’s not about driving people away. The two young ladies were here this morning. Idirian was here last week. She said she heard the music and was drawn here. She heard the music. Because there is a sound going out and it’s routing out the enemy. But it’s drawing in those that will be drawn by the Lord. So we want to meditate on it.
Then for the third time He says this. If God says something in a chapter three times, you can mark it down. You’re in this room because I believe you’re a land taker whether you realize it or not. You were born to take the land for the kingdom, to possess the land, your territory, your sphere.
:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
I have that promise. How many of you know He is with you wherever you go? Nothing can separate you from the love of God that’s in Christ Jesus.
:10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’
So get yourself ready; get your stuff ready. Because you are going in. He didn’t question whether he was going in. He believed the Lord and took Him at His word because he had a different spirit. Land takers have a different spirit. When God says it, it settles it. He said it. I believe it. Therefore I have spoken. It’s the authority of the Lord. Heaven backs you up. It really is that Simba moment, where you open your mouth but there is a loud roar coming from behind you called Mufasa.
:12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’ Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise.”
I believe as a house, as Miracle City Global, as Love Ministries, our mission is not just about us. Our mission is about people that come in and about others possessing and taking their land. It’s not okay for us just to take our land. I remember hearing an intercessor say one time, and maybe they just didn’t think about it, but they refused to go to a certain place because they said, Well that’s not my land anyway, so I’m not going there. Someone had asked them to come and help. I want us to be careful about what we say.
When you’re warring over your land, your family, your situation, don’t you want somebody to come and join and lock shields with you? I want to clarify here. There are assignments and if it’s not your assignment I understand that. But if the mindset is, That’s not my land. That’s across the track over there so I’m not going over there because I just don’t want to. Then maybe I need to ask the Lord, Is that my assignment? If He says it’s not, then I can be released from that. But we need to be sure. We need to know our spheres, our territory, and where we’re sent. And where we’re to help in taking the land.
I know that Mississippi is my land. I know that this nation is my land. I have a call to this nation. You’re connected with a house that has not just a nation mindset but a nation mindset.
