12/1/19 First Fruits
Judah Goes First.
Anna Love. Lord, we honor you and we thank you for this day. We stand up in your presence and we say, Here we are. We present every member of our bodies unto you as a living sacrifice—spirit, soul, and body. Lord, no part or piece left unturned. We say, Here we are. Here we are to do your will, what is written about us in your book for this day.
Father, I thank you for your ordained plan for this day. I thank you for every word that you desire to be spoken forth, every song you desire to be sung out, every instrument, every sound, everything you have ordained for this day. Lord, we say, Come and do whatever you want to do. We give you place to have your way. We give you place for your presence. Come and make your home among us.
Lord, I thank you that this is your house. We are your people. So have your way this morning in Jesus name. Amen.
As we were driving in I was thinking about this year, so many good things. The word I was hearing was Fulfillment. Thinking about things we have waited for, seen fulfilled, or are still waiting to see fulfillment on. We’re entering the Christmas season and you think of promise and the birth of Jesus. You think of fulfillment of words and wonder, a time of dreams and excitement.
The Lord was speaking to me this morning to take hold of Fulfillment like you would take hold of a gift. So start acknowledging the things. Think about this year and the things the Lord has come through for you on. Think about the miracles that have happened, because even if it doesn’t seem like it, there are so many things that happen in our lives on a daily basis that are significant. It’s acknowledging those. It’s being thankful and looking at the goodness of the Lord and letting that shine through, despite circumstances.
I was seeing in this last month of the year that the Lord is going to pour out that Fulfillment word. It’s like we have a month left, so instead of thinking, This hasn’t happened yet; I need this; I wonder if I really heard the Lord and is that going to happen? In this month expect the Lord to pour out his blessing, one thing after another.
It goes back to the scripture about, it will be so quick it will make your head swim. Our natural minds can’t wrap around the supernatural power of God. So expect Fulfillment. Take hold of Fulfillment.
Fulfillment is the achievement of something desired, promised, or predicted. Satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one’s abilities or character. We’ve been talking about our motives, our mindsets, our mouths, our hearts, as a preparation for what we step into in 5780, but also in 2020. Think about all the preparation the Lord has done in you this past year. All he’s done in bringing your character to godly character. And strengthening the abilities within you to be even better.
I know from talking to different ones of you, you’ve been able to do things this year that in your natural ability or in the past you wouldn’t have been able to do. It’s like the Lord has given you the grace. Really, it’s a reflection of the goodness of God. It’s a reflection of promises fulfilled. It’s a reflection of Fulfillment in our lives.
If we start acknowledge the things the Lord HAS done, then it lays the foundation for what we’re waiting for. If you start acknowledging the goodness of God and his blessing, then it just begins to build. Instead of looking at what you don’t have, look at what he’s already done.
Another definition of Fulfillment is the meeting of a requirement or a condition. The performance of a task, duty or role as required, pledged or expected. It’s the packing and dispatch of a customer’s order by a retailer.
I really like that definition because a lot of us are waiting for things to be fulfilled, and most of you know I order a lot of stuff online. If you do that, you get an email that says your order is on the way. That’s what I want you to take to heart. Whatever you’re waiting for, your order is on the way. It’s in the mail. It’s coming to you.
Synonyms of Fulfillment: achievement, attainment, contentment, gratification, perfection, realization, consummation, contentedness, discharge, implementation, carry out, carry through, discharging, affecting, just the ticket, you got it, crowning.
As this is a birthing season and a birthing year, this was very interesting to me that one of the synonyms for Fulfillment was crowning. That means the baby is crowning. The baby is here. So this morning the baby is here. We’re not waiting. We’re in it. You can’t go back now.
I was reminded of scriptures about Fulfillment or the promises of God. All of his promises are Yes and Amen.
II Corinthians1:20 TPT. For all of God’s promises find their Yes of fulfillment in him. And as his Yes and our Amen ascend to God, we bring him glory. Now, it is God himself who has anointed us. And he is constantly strengthening both you and us in union with Christ. He knows we are his since he has also stamped his seal of love over our hearts and has given us the Holy Spirit like an engagement ring is given to a bride—a down payment of the blessings to come.
Even in waiting, having the mindset that fulfillment is on the way, like a package being delivered to you; or thinking about a courtship, an engagement ring is a sign of a wedding; it’s a sign of a covenant to come; and in Jesus we have an even better covenant; so if you know you are positioned, then you know it’s coming.
In this month of Kislev it’s about trusting and resting. The biggest thing this month is coming back to a place of returning to your first love. We’ve been talking about returning to your first love and the pressure, pressing things out of us, things that don’t need to be there, and a new anointing coming forth.
We’ve crossed over so step into that new anointing. Position yourself to see what the Lord has for you and expect more. Expect him to fulfill what he said. If he gave you a word for you this year and you know it was for this year, if you haven’t seen it happen yet, don’t move off of it. Expect it. Don’t get stuck.
One of the biggest things that comes this season is doubt and unbelief and depression. You feel down under and start questioning the Lord. It’s like he is returning us to a place of childlike faith. If you think about when you were a child, there were certain things in your life you didn’t question. You didn’t worry about. You weren’t concerned about. You were just able to rest and trust that would be there for you. That’s what the Lord is wanting to bring us back to this morning and even in this month.
He has so much good prepared for us. And it’s as easy as changing our mindset. It’s as easy as saying, I’m not going to look at the negative. I’m not going to let this pull at me even if it doesn’t look great. I’m going to stand on the promises of God. All of his promises are Yes and Amen. All throughout the Old Testament the Lord never failed Israel. He always came through for them. He never left them high and dry. He always made a way for them.
It’s because of the goodness of the Lord that no matter what, he keeps calling out to us. He keeps pulling for us. He keeps taking hold of us. The promise is on the way. Acknowledge the promises that have already been fulfilled. Acknowledge the goodness of God. And step in and position yourself to receive all that he has for you.
Because our number one place of fulfillment, our number one place of satisfaction is in Jesus. If we fix our eyes there and stand positioned in him, everything else comes into place.
Lord, we just thank you for your Fulfillment. I thank you that your goodness, that your wonder, that your awe is coming in this place this morning. Lord, make us like children. Let us see you like a child. Father, help us to enter into that rest and that trust. Let our confidence be in you. Let our confidence be in your word and let us not be moved.
Father, I thank you that we will not succumb to doubt and unbelief, but that our faith is rising, that our faith is rising this morning. We say do what only you can do, Lord. We give you control.
I’m reminded of a song I wrote at the beginning of the year. It talks about not having to have all the answers, not having to figure it all out yourself, but letting the Lord do what he wants to do. I don’t know about you but I like to have the answers. I like to know what’s going to happen. But that’s not always our responsibility.
So Lord, we just give you control. We give you complete control to do what you see fit to do. We give you our ability, Lord. We lay down our ability. We lay down trying to figure things out and we say have your way. We trust you, in Jesus name. Amen.
?I fully trust in you Jesus. I’m placing my trust in you Jesus. I rest in you now. You set us free in your love. Here I am. Here you are. Set me free. I’m letting go. Set me free. Loose those chains. Here in your presence. I let out the sails of my heart. Here I am. Here you are. We love you Jesus. You’re bringing us back to our first love. We’re coming back. Set me free.
Anna. Lord, we acknowledge your presence this morning. We acknowledge your rest that’s in this place. Lord, we lay our hearts open in a place of rest. We say, Here’s our heart, Lord.
?Here’s our heart, Lord. We enter into your rest. We give you our hearts. Have your way. Rend our hearts. Come and play the strings of our hearts Lord. Here we are. We are your instruments. Come and play us. We set sail.
Kimble Love. How many of you are expecting the fullness of God’s promise to manifest? As Anna was talking about the crowning, the birthing of the promise, I heard the word, Dilate. Holy Spirit said that we need our faith to dilate so that this promise can be birthed. Dilate means to spread, to enlarge. He took me to Isaiah 54 and said, Rejoice, oh barren woman. Spread your tent curtain wide. Enlarge the place of your tent.
The Lord is saying today, Allow your faith to Dilate so that you can receive the fullness of your promise. Now is the time. Now is the day. It’s now time. It’s now faith. ’Tis the season.
Lord, we thank you that we are receiving the fullness of our promise. We yield to you, Holy Spirit. Dilate our faith. Stretch us. Spread us. Enlarge us so that we can receive the full bounty of your blessing and your promise, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
Brad Roney. Month of Kislev
Everything that was spoken and sung today is a precursor to what this month is all about. The month of trust. And the month of hope. That’s what the very word, Kislev, means. It’s hope and trust. Lane and Anna were setting the stage with what they were singing and proclaiming. And singing out is basically what Kislev is and what we’ve stepped into.
Kislev means Trust or Hope. This is what the Lord wants to do, by the very definition of what this month is. He wants to produce in us a greater Trust in Him, our source. And he wants us to remember and be reminded that he is our Hope, no matter what we see with our natural eyes. We see a lot of stuff in day to day life just in the news, and it seems from what we see in the natural that hope is gone.
There are probably a lot of people you come across in your day to day life that that is their confession or their thoughts, that there is no hope. You look at desolation, at famine, at unnecessary deaths. You see terrorism, drug abuse, suicide. We get the idea of, Where is the hope? There is no hope. All I’m seeing is destruction.
The Lord wants to remind us that He is our Hope—the word we need to take hold of and remember so that we can go forth and proclaim that hope to the hopeless, to the world that doesn’t believe there’s any hope left. We have the Hope. We have the testimony of Hope. Our salvation is a testimony of Hope.
This month of Kislev is one of the darkest months in the natural. The Winter Solstice is this month so our days are getting shorter and our nights are getting longer. We don’t have as much daylight as we used to. That in itself is proclaiming darkness. But here comes our Hope.
I Peter 1:3. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
There There There. We are birthed into a living hope. That’s what we need to recognize and be and proclaim. Not only are we birthed into a living hope, other people can be birthed into a living hope. Their lives can be changed in a twinkling of an eye. In a very brief moment their lives can be changed. Hope can be infused in them.
Proverbs 4:18-19. The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
We are in light. So this dark time we might be in, it might seem dark in the natural, but we are in the light. We have light in us. We have light coming out from us. It says there, the path of the righteous. We are the righteousness of Christ. It’s like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
:19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness. They do not know what makes them stumble.
So it is up to us. We have this light in us. We have this light that Christ has put within us—Him. He’s the Light. We have people who are in deep darkness and it’s up to us to bring forth this light for them to see, to bring this hope.
Psalm 119:105. Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.
So the Word, Jesus, and Your word proceeding forth is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. So we are not in the darkness stumbling. We have the Light. The righteous path is filled with light. Even in the dark times, in this dark month, there is still light.
Matthew 5:14-16. You are the light of the world. That’s Jesus talking to his disciples and also to us. We are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. We are that city, that town built on the hill that is exposed. We have light coming forth from us, exposing and dispelling the darkness.
:15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. We have that light within us. We don’t need to hide it. We need to expose that light out to dispel the darkness, and let those people who are in the darkness stumbling be exposed to the light so they can come toward it.
I’m reminded of being a kid going on camping trips on the river. We would take weekends and camp on the sandbar. We would fish all weekend. It was great. At night we had a campfire but we also had old Coleman lanterns you put kerosine in. As a kid I learned really quick not to sit by the lantern or you would be eaten up by every bug that’s around the river—moths, horse flies, mosquitoes, etc. They’re attracted to the light.
We need to be that light that attracts people, that they come running from the darkness into that light to have their heart exposed to the Light of Jesus, that righteousness, so they will be changed and not live stumbling in the darkness anymore.
:16 In the same way let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
It’s not for our glory. It’s for Jesus and for the glory of God.
Characteristics of Kislev
This is a month to develop your warfare strategies. Have a prophetic revelation of war.
Enter into a new level of trust and rest. We must have that childlike faith. As a child you’re naive. You trust everybody and everything you hear. We need to get back to that with the Lord so we believe that whatever he says is true.
On a superficial level we do believe that but when you go deeper we’re not so sure about it. It seems like the impossible, but of course the Lord is the God of the impossible. We have to get to the childlike faith so that regardless of how wild it sounds, we can believe what he says. He is going to come through and do exactly what he says when he wants to do it.
Declare your life experiences to be filled with tranquility and peace. Peace, like we sang about this morning. Ask for the rivers of life to flow. We all have life experiences, good and bad. We learn from them all. We rejoice in the good, and we surely hope that we learn from the bad experiences. All in all it’s a development of who we are. Even in the good and the bad we need to be filled with tranquility and peace, and ask for the rivers of life to flow from within us.
Review your support system. That means who you support and who supports you. We get support in the natural and also from our Father in heaven. Who do we get more support from? Who are we leaning on and abiding in? The friend next door who may or may not come through? Or our Father in heaven? Jesus? Holy Spirit? Who will never leave us nor forsake us.
Tranquility and Peace in the midst of warfare. Being on the offensive brings peace in the midst of conflict. Getting tangled up and getting out of your abiding place we tend to get into trouble.
This video clip is from The Hobbit. This is the month of Benjamin who is known as an excellent Archer, also the constellation for this month. The Bowman in this clip is faced with saving himself and his son and what’s left of the town from Smog the Dragon. See this as your enemy coming toward you. He taunts the Bowman. The only arrow he had designed to kill the dragon broke, so he’s on the offensive. But if he frets too much because of his circumstances, he might give up. But he didn’t.
The Bowman is in a state of peace facing the dragon who threatened to kill his son with fire and then come after him. But he had a peace about himself and is also bringing peace to his son who is helping him in this task. The enemy has an exposed place and is brought down.
So the bowman has a peace. He brought peace to his son who was helping him. And he commanded him to, Look at me. Think of Jesus, Father, Holy Spirit saying this to us in our adversity. Look at Me. And he’s giving instruction, A little to the left; little to the left; I’ve just exposed a place on your enemy. Now shoot your arrow. The timing is also right, too. If he’s a little too early, little too late, he will miss the mark.
Develop your warfare strategy. Get prophetic revelation for war. This clip is like a prophetic revelation of his battle. Even in the adversity he saw the exposed place on his enemy. He had peace and tranquility, and he sent the arrow that destroyed his enemies. He saved himself, his son, and the rest of the town.
Kimble. Improvise, adapt, overcome.
Brad. That’s exactly what he did, and sometimes that’s what we have to do in adversity. We’ve got to have peace about it so that we can adapt. You can get messed up in the head if you look too much in the natural and you can’t see how to improvise and adapt.
This is the month of dreams and visions. Review your sleep patterns so you’ll be healthier in the year ahead. This is a very important key part of this month. Kislev is known as the month of dreams. Many of us have had dreams where the Lord spoke to us. He gets my undivided attention in my sleep. I’m not distracted and my attention is not elsewhere. Sometimes he has to get me in my sleep. I’m not going anywhere. My mind is in sleep mode so he can easily come in and download what he needs to tell me and show me.
He answers my prayers through dreams. Almost eight years ago I was in a place where I needed direction, NOW. For encouragement purposes and for correction. I don’t recall ever having a dream from the Lord, but I asked the Lord the speak to me in my dreams, in my sleep.
For six to seven months after I prayed that, every night was a dream about something I had praying about, or asking about, even dreams of encouragement, bringing dreams that brought me hope where I thought there was no hope. That dream brought me joy. I woke up from that dream and felt like a new person just because of what God showed me in the dream. It spoke to me.
The enemy wants to use that time. If he can disrupt that pattern of sleep, he can produce physical fatigue, mental fatigue, emotional fatigue, and can spiritually upset you. Sleep is important. God designed sleep to charge us up, to recharge our batteries and reset everything, to bring a healthier mindset and a healthier body. If the enemy can come in and disrupt that pattern, then that’s an open door he can come and get you off kilter, off your path, and produce an ungodly mindset.
Fatigue. I’ve experienced months and years of having little sleep, averaging four to five hours of sleep. For a short period of time I’m fine. But after a long period of time, I’m irritable; I’m sick; it alters my mood; it alters my digestive system; every part of my being is altered. Sleep is very important. The Lord wants to use sleep to recharge us, and the enemy wants to disrupt that to get us off kilter.
Review your sleeping patterns so you’ll be healthier in the year ahead. The Lord can and does pour into us through dreams in our sleep. He has our undivided attention. He also reveals trauma that might have been forgotten or we’re unaware of. Traumatized people usually have irregular sleep patterns. The Lord can use a dream to bring that out, something you might not have known, something you’ve forgotten about, something he wants to expose to you that he wants to deal with.
Last month we talked about root issues, how the Lord wants to expose to us root issues in our lives so he can deal with them and we can move on. This could be a moment of him exposing a root issue, something we forgot about, something buried very deep. In a dream he can expose or remind us of that and then we can pray and allow the Lord to do what he wants to do to heal and deliver us and set us free.
Deal with what God reveals. There are times we aren’t aware of what we dream. I believe if the Lord gives you a dream, you’ll remember it when you wake up or he will bring it to your remembrance a little later on. So be aware of what God reveals to you and deal with what he reveals.
Offensive tact. Matthew 16:13. When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
:15 :But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
He is saying that the gates of hell will not prevail against you. That is a scripture of offense. He’s saying the gates of hell cannot defend against you by this revelation of who I am. He said, On this rock I will build my church, on this revelation I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against the church.
Abiding. Tranquility and peace in the midst of warfare and being on the offensive brings peace in the midst of conflict. Getting tangled up and getting out of your abiding place, you can tend to get into trouble.
John 15:1-8. “I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
:3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
:8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
Every time that word ‘remain’ is spoken, it’s telling you where you need to abide. If you remain in Me and my words remain in you, that’s abiding. Connection. It’s saying where your abiding place is. Getting tangled up and getting out of your abiding place, we tend to get into trouble. If we break off and don’t continue to abide in the vine, Jesus, we’re going to be tossed aside, we’re not going to bear fruit, we’re going to be tossed aside, we’re going to be in trouble basically.
To avoid being tangled up and getting out of that abiding place, we need to realize where our abiding place is, and that’s in Jesus, the vine; and we are the branch.
The tribe this month is Benjamin. He is the youngest of Jacob’s sons born to Rachel. She died in childbirth, giving birth to Benjamin. In her dying moments she named Benjamin Ben-oni, son of my sorrow.
Jacob didn’t what that to be his son’s name. It would follow him the rest of his life and be cursed. So he renamed him Benjamin, son of the right hand, which is a name of authority. Benjamin was the only child born in the promised land. He was born between Bethel and Ephrath.
Jacob’s blessing over Benjamin was: Benjamin is a ravenous wolf. In the morning he shall devour the pray, and at night he shall divide the spoils. Genesis 49:27.
Moses blessed the tribe of Benjamin before he died. Let the beloved of the Lord. He is proclaiming the tribe of Benjamin is the beloved of the Lord. Rest secure in him for he shields him all day long. The one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders. Deuteronomy 33:12.
Well-known people who came from the tribe: Mordecai, Saul of Tarsus or Paul.
This month of Kislev contains a feast of miracles, Hanukkah. Hanukkah begins December 22 and ends December 30. It encompasses both Kislev and Tevet. It is Hebrew for “dedication.” It is also known as the Festival of Lights.
We are the light because Jesus is the Light, the Word, the lamp to our feet and the light to our path.
Hanukkah commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrian Greek army, the miracle of rededicating the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, and restoring its menorah or lamps. The miracle was there was only enough oil to illuminate the lamp for one day only, yet it lasted for eight full days. That why Hanukkah lasts eight days.
This is like the widow woman and the miracle of producing oil to get through the famine. The oil lasted eight days.
The message is simply: IN THE MIDST OF DESTRUCTION THERE IS MERCY! Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed, but the Lord brought mercy. So in your times of feeling like you’re in destruction and despair, the Lord is bringing mercy.
God will always find a way to impart mercy to you, in any aspect of destruction—external, internal, physical, or spiritual. He’s a God of mercy. Our salvation is a product of his mercy and his love for us. His mercy is not only for right now; it builds toward your future, and builds your future. Tomorrow, next week, and so on. It’s ever-building. It’s ever-increasing. His Grace is sufficient and His Love is everlasting. It never ends.
The letter for this month is SAMEKH. It means Trust, Support, Coming full circle. The letter is written as a full circle. We should be coming full circle in developing our trust and confidence. We should be examining our hearts and motives this month. We will break up and out of old patterns of mistrust that hinder our walk with the Lord and others.
This month be aware of your motives. Why do you do things? Is it for you, for your enjoyment, for your benefit? Or is it for the benefit of someone else? Or the Lord? What is your motive for serving the Lord? To get something from Him? Or just to be with Him? Whether he blesses you more than he has already or not. That’s enough for me. He’s already done more than I could ever ask for, hope for, or imagine. But he doesn’t stop there.
Sagittarius the Archer is the constellation for the month of Kislev. This goes back to the connection with Benjamin, known as a tribe of great archers. This is not astrology. This is the stars that God created and set in motion and in place for his glory and for his message. The Gospel is preached in the heavens. Even the star that led the wise men to Jesus was created and put in the sky for a purpose. All these stars and constellations are put in the sky for a purpose.
Sagittarius the Archer. Time to fight against empires and cultures. Shoot straight and move quickly. Cut your losses and move on.
Video clip from the movie Robin Hood when Robin of Loxley was being trained to be a hood, or a thief. I’m not condoning thievery. He was being taught to be an archer, up close. He was a good archer in the army, but Little John was teaching him how to be a better archer, precise. Almost like breaking through a door with a pistol. Everything is precise and quick and you’re moving on. See your target. Bang Bang, and you’re moving on.
This goes back to warfare strategies and prophetic revelation on war. He was continuously giving him direction on what to do. He was saying, This is going to be a war you’ve never fought before. We might be fighting a war we’ve never fought before so we need new tactics, prophetic revelation. We need to be quick about it. See our target. Hit it. Move on. See our target. Hit it. Move on.
Our enemy is not going to slow down on us. So we’ve got to be ready, quick, and move on. Quick and move on. Quick and move on, just like Robin Hood did. I thought that was pretty cool.
The color is the multicolored rainbow and it’s also the month of the Rainbow. The stone is the opal or rainbow jasper. You can see the brilliance of every color in the stone. Kislev is the month of the Rainbow. Last month was the month of the flood. This month we’re celebrating the Rainbow, the covenant promise the Lord gave to Noah and each one of us.
Examine what you have warred through in the past to come into a place of peace. Warring in tranquility and peace. Warring on the offense and not the defense. God made a covenant with us so we will not have to war with those things again. The Egyptians you see today, you will not see again. That’s what we did last Sunday. When I was reading this I thought, This was last Sunday. God made a covenant with us so we will not have to war with those things again, those things we have been struggling with. The deliverance we needed, God made a covenant for that. He said, I will deliver you. Those things you will not deal with or be entangled with ever again.
Genesis 9:13-17. Paraphrase from A Time to Advance book. You have come through the flood and it did not overtake you. Now, I will make a covenant with you that you will not war with that again. That means we are confessing, Lord, you made a covenant with us that those things we have warred with before, we will not have to war with again.
Ezekiel 47 Principle. Let the river of God flow from your innermost being. When your river starts flowing you can enter into your next measure. It’s like levels. It’s like you can’t quite reach that next level so you need a boost. You’ve got to let the water rise a little bit. Then you can step up to that next level, and it rises a little more. And step up to the next level.
This is the principle of Ezekiel 47. Ankle, knee, waist-deep, and then over your head. Process each level of revelation by swimming and dealing with old traumas. (Traumatized people have disrupted sleep patterns.) Process and deal with traumas and issues before moving to the next level. If you don’t do that, either you’re not going to be able to move to the next level, or you’re going to be dragging that along like Robin Hood dragging that heavy chain along. He drags it and gets tired with Little John saying, More More.
Would you rather be encumbered by something you could have dropped before, so you could have moved swiftly? Or do you want to carry that? I don’t want to carry any baggages or be entangled with something that causes me to stumble all the way to my next.
It reminds me of a time I was in Boy Scouts. I went backpacking for ten days in Cimarron, New Mexico, on a scout ranch there. We were in the wilderness and could only take so much with us on our backs. There were about 10 to 12 in our group. Stations were set up every two to three days to pick up supplies we might need. Everything else you carry on your back—tents, food, your personal gear, your group’s gear, cooking equipment, etc. We had about 50 pounds each, hiking six to eight miles a day.
Before we left base camp they did what was called a shake down. You take everything out of your backpack and do an inventory. You have to think. Am I really going to need this for the next ten days? Or can I leave this at base camp and pick it up when I come back? That way you can limit the weight you’re carrying, and you’re reducing clutter so group gear will fit in. Sunday was a shake down. Sunday was dumping so we can go. Dumping the change. Shake down the backpack so we can move swiftly.
Ezekiel 47. The man brought me back to the entrance to the Temple and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the Temple towards the east, for the Temple faced east. The water was coming down from under the south side of the Temple, south of the altar. He then brought me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate facing east, and the water was trickling from the south side.
As the man went eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he measured off a thousand cubits and led me through water that was ankle-deep. He then measured off a thousand cubits and led me through water that was knee-deep. He measured off another thousand and led me through water that was up to the waist. He measured off another thousand, but now it was a river that I could not cross, because the water had risen and was deep enough to swim in—a river that no one could cross. He asked me, “Son of man, do you see this?” Then he led me back to the bank of the river.
When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river. He said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, where it enters the Dead Sea. When it empties into the sea, the salty water there becomes fresh. Swarms of living creatures will live wherever the river flows.
There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh; so where the river flows everything will live.
Remember that. Where the river flows, everything will live.
Fishermen will stand long the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds—like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea. But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt.
Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”
Again, Process each level of revelation by swimming and dealing with old traumas and issues before moving to the next level. He went through levels. He walks a thousand cubits to the ankle, then knee, then waist-deep, and then over his head. And now you’re swimming.
As the river was flowing out from the Temple, it brought life to where it was flowing, even flowed into salt water and it became fresh and there was life. There was life on both sides of the river and also it brought life in the salty where nothing could live. That tells me that as the river of God is flowing out of you, the river of life is flowing out of you, the springs of living water—that tells me that wherever that is, there is Life. And wherever it flows, there is Life. Where it doesn’t flow, there is not life.
To have a life full of life, allow that spring, allow that river to flow out of you. That will enable you to process what you need to process and swim to the next level. We want to go to the next level. And we want to bring life to the next level. Life is there. We want to bring life also, and bring life to where we’re going.
We’ve brought life. The Lord has brought forth a river and a spring out of this area and we’re seeing life. We’re releasing that river from us and we’re bringing life wherever we go. Also, like I said, we need to let our light shine so those people who are stumbling in darkness can see the light, come towards the light/life, and have life.
Father, in the name of Jesus, we thank you for redeeming a month for us, this new month and everything that is packing within it. Lord, we receive everything you have for us. We receive the river of life you’ve put within us. That light you have deposited within us for us to shine. You’ve said to shine forth, and Father, we decree and declare that we will shine forth our light. The light you deposited in us, Jesus Christ, will shine forth into a land that is dark to bring light and life in the name of Jesus.
Father I pray that for each and every one of us, our sleep patterns will be organized and regulated by you. And Father, we open our minds to you to receive your revelation, your dreams and your visions. I pray you will give us the ability to process those dreams and visions for our next and for the congregation’s next.
You set forth life and blessings, and we choose life and blessings this month and the months to come. We decree and declare life and blessings over this land in Jesus name. Amen.
?He is my faithful Father pulling me out of the dark. He is my firm foundation. Jesus defeated the darkness. He has never lost a battle. He has won the war. Our defender has conquered. You are the Lord, the famous one. Great is your name is all the earth.
Kimble Love. Praise the Lord. Our Jesus, the undisputed champion of the universe. He is infinity to zero. He has never lost and he never will. If you stay around here you won’t stay lost either. You’ll come to the light just like a moth to the flame. Because Jesus rules and reigns in this house. Glory to God.
Welcome to Miracle City Global today. We’re here to celebrate Jesus and to celebrate our life in him, the goodness he has provided for us through his sacrifice, and to worship him. Because he is so so good.
News Flash: God is still doing good things. He’s doing good things for you and for me. And there are some things in the works that we may not even know about, but God is doing good things. So get ready. Expect it. It’s coming forth. You may not be able to understand it, explain it, or figure it out. But that’s okay. God’s got it. So just trust in him. And you’re going to see the fullness of your promise and your blessing come forth.
As we enter into worship, just open your heart, your mind, your soul, and your spirit to receive from him today.
Father, we thank you for your goodness and that you’re moving in our midst. I thank you that you have better for us than we ever hoped for, thought of, or imagined. Lord God, we set ourselves into agreement with what you desire to do. Lord, may we just be your vessels, the conduit, that you flow through. Use us Lord God, according to your preset purposes. Open the eyes of our understanding. Fill us with your wisdom, your knowledge, and your discernment. And may we walk in the fullness of your Spirit and display your glory wherever we go.
Father, I thank you that your hand is upon us and may we not disappoint. May we walk in the fullness of sonship and be all you created us to be. Father, we bless you today in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?Lift up the gates, swing wide the doors, the King of Glory is coming. His kingdom come. His will be done. We welcome you, Jesus. Lift up your banners and pour out your praise. Jesus, Warrior Jesus.
Brad. The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it. For he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart. Who does not trust in an idol or swear by false gods. They will receive blessings from the Lord and vindication from the Lord God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.
Lift up your heads, you gates. Be lifted up, you ancient doors that the King of Glory may come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty. The Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates. Be lifted up, you ancient doors that the King of Glory may come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty. He is the King of Glory.
?Lift up your heads and pour out your praise. Fill up your mouths with that glorious name. Jesus, Warrior Jesus. We welcome you, Jesus.
Prepare Prepare Prepare ye the way of the Lord. For the kingdom is at hand and his power and glory is coming into this land. Prepare our hearts. Come fill this place. Yes you are the King of Glory.
Holy Holy Holy. You are worthy to receive our praise. You’re the Son of God.
Lord of Glory. Greater Glory.
Betty. For the latter glory shall be greater than the former glory. King of Glory we honor you.
Anna. You are the King of Glory. The Lord strong and mighty. The Lord mighty in battle. You are our King. You are welcome, King of Glory. Come on in.
Betty. He’s releasing rivers of glory in this place. We come to drink of him. Anyone who is thirsty let him come unto me, says the Lord, and drink. Out of our inmost being flows rivers of living water.
I see the Lord releasing rivers of glory, rivers of revelation, rivers of living water. You might say, Where where where is it? Hahaha. It’s from within you. Right here right now. Every believer in this place is a fountain of living water.
Anna. Spring up, spring up oh fountains of living water.
Betty. You might say, What is this fountain? What are these rivers of living water? Because Jesus said if a man is thirsty, let him come unto me and drink, and out of his inmost being will flow rivers of living water. The Word of God said he was talking about the Spirit, Holy Spirit, who had not been given. So when we say, Spring up, spring up, oh fountain; Rivers of living water flow, it’s the Spirit of the living God, Holy Spirit; it’s his manifestation coming out of you and me as believers.
He is the Spirit of Glory living on the inside of you and me. Rivers of Glory. Rivers of revelation from the Revelator. He’s releasing revelation to you and me. I hear the Lord saying it’s serious business. Because we’ve come hebraically and prophetically to a full circle place. Yay. You’ve come full circle in your promise. You’ve come full circle in your opportunity. We’ve come full circle to enter in and possess. We’ve come full circle. Eyes wide open. Ears wide open. Heart wide open unto Him. He sits upon the throne. Unto him who sits on the throne in heaven.
Lord, be enthroned in our hearts this morning. Lord, I decree and declare that no one will miss the opportunity to enter into the fullness of time and the fullness of your blessing and the fullness of the promise. The fullness of the dream. The fullness of the vision. We’ve come again again. We’ve come again again. We’ve come again again. Breaker Angels are here today.
You’ve come again again and the word of God to you and me is Unstoppable. We’ve come again again, full circle. It’s a sign. It’s a sign. It’s a sign. Jesus is come to work with you. He’s confirming his word with signs following, following, following. It’s a sign. It’s a sign. Signed, sealed, and delivered. Signed, sealed, delivered. Signed, sealed, delivered.
Open up the books. Open up the books. Heaven is coming. Open up the books. He’s opening our books and having a look. He’s opening your books. Oh he’s having a look. Come and look and read with me, says the Lord your God. Come look and listen. It’s time. It’s time. It’s the fullness of time. It’s the fullness of time. You’ve come again again. So come on and step into Time. Your time. Your season. Your time. Your season. Signed, sealed and delivered.
Lane Bass. I hear the Lord saying, Today is the day and now is the time. This is the hour to prepare the way for me. As we were singing Prepare, he said Yes. Prepare the way for me. It’s not an accident today in the Bible app it was Isaiah 40:3-5 which says, A voice of one is calling out, clear the way for the Lord in the wilderness. Make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God. Let every valley be lifted up and every mountain and hill be made low; and the crooked and uneven shall be made straight and level, and the rough places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.
What better time and what better place and what better people than the people in the Bride of the Lord to prepare the way of the Lord. He’s saying, Have you made this a metaphor about my coming again? Have you made it just a good story? No. I’m coming. I’m coming, says the Lord. I’m coming, says the Lord. I’m coming, says the Lord. Prepare the way for the Lord, Bride of Jesus Christ.
Betty. In your heart. In your heart, make room. Oh we make room in our hearts and our lives. We make room in our houses. We make room in our dwellings. Come Lord. Come Lord. Oh come Lord. Come in this place today.
?The Spirit and the Bride say Come.
Betty. Rosemary just came and released a word to me. She said that the Restorer of the Breach is in the house today. So if there is a breach in any way, first with the Lord, the Restorer of the Breach is here. If there is a breach in any relationship that you or I have, the Restorer of the Breach is here.
If you are pregnant, physically or spiritually, and the baby has been breach, I decree and declare that there is a turning today. We’ve come to a Fulfillment of Time. The baby is crowning. The baby is crowning.
?There is a turning today. What has been breach is now turning/crowning.
Nita Maselle. I saw something spinning around and in this little narrow hole I saw an eye. I realized it was a potter’s wheel and I was the pot. He as looking into it and he was expanding it. He is giving us expansion to hold the more. He is expanding us to hold more. He’s reshaping us for this time and this season for the more.
I thought about what Kimble said about pouring out more than you can imagine or think, and he’s increasing our capacity to retain the more that he’s trying to give us. It’s more than we’ve been able to contain. And he’s expanding us for it now.
So Father, I thank you for expanding us—spirit, soul, body, our whole being. I thank you for expanding our capacity to retain, to hold, to move in that which you are pouring out from heaven. Lord, you are preparing us for what you are pouring out. Thank you for it in Jesus name.
Kevin Wilson. The word she just gave confirmed the word I had just written down. I asked the Lord to confirm it. In worship the word Canon kept coming to my mind. A canon is a kind of gun in which the mass of the bullet is very large. Mass is the measure of how much matter is in an object.
I felt like God was saying that he is supernaturally increasing our mass. Then he said, Glory Mass. Then he said, I am enlarging your capacity for the mass of my glory. Like a canon, God will shoot you with Glory Mass to bombard the camp of the enemy. You shall defy the laws of physics and by my hand I shall motion you to your destined place. Wherever you land, the earth shall respond and new life shall come forth. So get ready for the Rapid Release.
So anytime you’ve seen a canon in an old movie, etc., when they release there is a Boom. I kept hearing God say, Boom, I have now released. Boom, I have now released. It’s a rapid and a quick release. God is saying to get into your place because there is about to be a Rapid Release of glory that’s about to come to the earth.
Betty. Boom. Boom. Boom. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Hear the sound. Boom boom boom boom boom. Hear the sound…
?Boom boom boom boom boom, hear the sound…
Betty. There’s a sound that’s striking fear in the heart of the enemy even now causing (stuff) to scatter. The Lord is sending ambushments against our enemies today. He’s clearing out the clutter. He’s clearing out the clutter. He’s clearing out the clutter. He’s removing the rubble. The wood, hay and stubble has to go, says the Lord. Driving out our enemies with the sound, with the word.
Kimble. You don’t just hear a canon fire. You see, you smell, you hear, you taste, you feel. There’s a concussion that happens that affects every part of your entire being when standing in close proximity to it.
So the canon of God is going off and it’s affecting every area of our life, all of our senses. Not only in the natural, but spiritually, too. Because he’s the bomb. He is the Bomb! We’ve got to get past ourselves to receive from Him. We’re not in receive mode yet. We think we are. We need to receive and be in a place we’ve never been before. He has more than we can ever hope for or imagine. He’s that good. So just get ready. I’m just telling you. Get ready. Boom Boom Boom. Cause it’s here.
As we continue to worship this morning we’re going to come and bring into the house our tithes, offerings, and first fruits that God has so generously blessed us with, the portion he’s put within your heart to give. So that we can go forth and advance his kingdom throughout the earth. Throughout Hattiesburg. Throughout Forrest County. The state of Mississippi. The nation and the world.
You may not know it, but when you give into this ministry you’re not just keeping the lights on. It’s going into all the world with ministries we support and sow into, missionaries we send out and support. Beau Neill is going to Cuba Tuesday. Don is leaving tomorrow afternoon for 16 weeks going to Southeast Asia, Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Kenya, and that’s just the ones he knows about. There’s no telling where the Lord is going to send him when he gets there.
Everything you give here goes beyond, from the uttermost to the guttermost. It goes and does the work of the kingdom. I encourage you when you come today and sow, know that that’s where it’s going.
We’re also going to come to the Table of the Lord and partake of Communion. We’re going to remember the sacrifice, the price Jesus paid for our salvation, for our deliverance, for our healing, for everything we have on this earth, for life and godliness. He came and did what we couldn’t do. He came and stood in our place. And gave up his life so that we could be redeemed back unto life with the Father.
On the night that he was betrayed he met in an upper room with his disciples and after 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. He then took the cup, blessed it and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink of it, do it in remembrance of me.
Today as we come, we are going to take the very elements of the bread and the juice, the body and blood of Jesus into our natural bodies. It’s a natural act but I believe we are taking spiritually the very DNA of Jesus into our bodies to identity with him as he went to the cross—the pain and suffering he experienced in our place to bring us back into right relationship with Father God.
We’ve been redeemed. That means to be brought back, by the blood of the Lamb. We celebrate the work of the cross and we thank God for our salvation, for our deliverance, for our healing—for by his stripes we ARE healed. And he’s given each of us the ability to produce wealth.
Lord, we thank you today that you have given us the ability to produce. We thank you, Lord, that you went to the cross in our place, that you laid down your life for the joy that was set before you. And that joy was fulfilling the will of the Father. And that joy was us.
So Lord, we thank you for your sacrifice. We bless you today. We remember all that you’ve done. And we declare that you are the Lord of lords and the King of all kings. We worship you. Amen and Amen.
?How wonderful. How lovely is your name, Jesus. You captivate our hearts and save us by your grace. We are children of the King. You are closer than a brother. I breathe you in, oh what a friend I found in Jesus.
Let go of your heart. Let go of your head. My soul sings how I love you.
Regina. Last week I read this prophetic word and it resonated in my spirit and I wanted to share it. It says, While some have prophesied over the years that the ravens will sustain those that walk by the word of the Lord, I believe that we are entering into a new season of a supernatural abundance. (Supernatural Abundance jumped off the page.)
The brooks are drying up and it’s time to move into a new place. What we must understand is that ravens are good for sustaining dry seasons, but when God is sending you an abundance he sends the dove—the white dove.
I asked the Lord to confirm this word to me. The next night I had an encounter. I don’t know if it was a dream or if I was awake. A bird landed by my left ear. It perched and then it flew off and I heard the wings. I asked the Lord what that was and he said, It was a white dove that you asked for.
This morning while we were worshiping and praising, I looked in the spirit realm and saw rain. It looked like hurricane winds. The trees were blowing over and the rain was blowing sideways. I asked the Lord what it was and he said, This is the abundance. It’s here. The abundance of glory. The abundance of grace. The abundance of blessings. And restoration. All you have to do is agree and receive.
Betty. We agree and we receive. There is anointing on that. This doesn’t always happen to me, but from the tips of my fingers all the way down my arms, the Lord is pouring out. He’s pouring out. Lord, we just want to acknowledge the abundance. We want to acknowledge the rain. We want to acknowledge the wind. We want to acknowledge your abundance of provision and blessing and grace, Lord, that you are releasing in this hour.
We acknowledge and decree and declare that it is a new season. It is a new season. We’ve come again again. But we’re not going to be hanging out by the brook waiting on a raven. Lord, we’re coming out of the dry places, out of the drought, out of famine, out of lack into plenty, more than enough, exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask for, hope, or imagine.
Now unto him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above, in your wildest dreams. More than you could ask for, hope, or imagine. By his power that is working within us now. By his power that is working within his corporate body. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no one has conceived the things that God has prepared for those that love him.
You sung, Prepare ye, Prepare ye the way for the Lord. But the Lord your God would say to you and me today, I have prepared the way for you. Call unto me and I will show you things you know not of, fenced in things. I see Jeremiah 33:3. It’s about Providence. It’s about our God seeing what we need and knowing what we need even before we ask for it.
The Spirit searches out the deep things of God. We’re in a time of coming into the depths, as Brad was releasing this morning, ankle-deep, knee-deep, waist-deep, and over your head. With every place you go in the river of God there is revelation there. There is a release. Nothing to hold me back or hold me down.
It says in Isaiah, the counterpart to the scripture in Corinthians, No eye has seen, no hear has heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those that wait upon him.
We’ve waited for this to come again again. ?Nothing’s gonna stop us now. Nothing’s gonna hold us back. No more exile. No more wandering.
Psalm 125 NIV. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion which cannot be shaken, but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
I want you to receive that right now. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, the Lord your God surrounds you and me, his people, now and forevermore.
Psalm 125 TPT. Those who trust the Lord are as unshakable, as unmovable as mighty Mt. Zion. Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord’s wrap-around presence surrounds his people, protecting them now and forever. The wicked will not always rule over the godly, provoking them to do what is evil. God, let your goodness be given away to your good people, to all your godly lovers. But those who turn away from the truth, you will turn them away from you to follow their crooked ways. You will give them just what they deserve. May Israel experience peace and prosperity.
May we, the people of God, even now experience peace and prosperity. I didn’t know the word that Regina was going to release. In fact, I was going to talk about Jacob coming again again. I have a whole teaching on dreams. The Lord said, Would you just let me? You want to do it or do you want me to do it? Then he led me to open up to the Psalms to share two or three with you. It’s hand in hand. I had no idea what she was going to share. But the Lord said, Ask her if she has something. I’m glad I did.
Psalm 126 NIV. When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.
These scriptures I’m reading to you out of Psalm 126 and 127 is where we are right now. It’s a time and season when God is bringing you and me back to the point where he is going to fulfill the dream or the vision on your life.
Don Nicaud is in this house today and he is part of our extended family. He has been on the mission field in Indonesia. He has carried missions in his heart for years and years and years. He went overseas seven and a half years ago. The Lord has released him after seven and a half years. There probably wasn’t a day that went by that he wasn’t wanting to be somewhere. He’s come full circle in the season and the time when dreams really do come true.
Psalm 126. When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. That word also means restored to health. He’s not only going to bring your dreams to fruition, he’s going to make you wholly whole. When you’ve been longing or pining for something for a long time, when the manifestation of it comes; or you’ve been carrying a child for nine months and waiting for the birthing of the child, in the process of the labor, labor is not always easy. Birthing is not always easy. But at the end of the day, when that birth is complete and that baby is lying in your arms, it’s worth it all. The pain is forgotten and the joy comes.
There has been a process for you and me to come to the place where we are today. I believe because you’re in this very room or you’re watching this morning, you’ve come to a full circle place and the Lord is saying, Hei Hei Hei, Out of every place of captivity. Out of every place of exile. I’m bringing you again again to Me because you’ve been born in Zion. You have my DNA in you. You have my Word in you.
Psalm 126. When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy.
I believe what the Lord wants to cause to happen in your life and my life to be so great in the restoration, that our light and the glory of God is going to blaze so loud, so big in us that the nations are going to see. Just like Brad taught this morning, there is a light and a glory in you that dispels darkness and causes people to be drawn to the light. And the light is the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, the Lord of Glory. I would say unto you that the Lord is removing the cover. He is taking the cover off. He’s taking the cover off of you and he is taking the cover off the things he is ready to reveal to you.
It’s the glory of God to conceal a matter. But it’s the glory of kings to search it out. And the things that are revealed are for the children of God. So get ready for the reveal. You are going to be amazed at what he reveals that is stored on the inside of you. You are going to be amazed at the visions and the dreams that he is ready to pour out on you in this season.
By the time you reach January 1, 202020, hahaha, triple dose. 2020. I believe he is awakening within you big dreams and big visions. God dreams turning into plans too big for human hands. Trust him and see. He’s got all the power you need. He’s real. He’s real. Takes back what the devil steals. That’s an old song from the 90s. But he is reaching into those places from the 60s and 70s, from the 80s and the 90s and the 2000s. And he’s bringing it back.
This is about restoration. This is about you coming to the place again so that you can step into the dream and the vision, so that you can manifest. And people are going to see. I believe many are going to see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Yay God. There’s a God in heaven who works miracles. There’s a God in heaven who heals the sick and raises the dead. He’s still opening blind eyes and deaf ears. There’s a God in heaven who saves men’s souls. He says somebody in here is the apple of his eye.
:4 Restore our fortunes, oh Lord.
How many of you want your fortunes restored? How many want lost inheritances restored? How many of you just want what Jesus has purchased for you and me? It’s called Covenant. It’s called when the Lord made a covenant with the earth and man that no longer would he destroy the earth with a flood. It’s the month of the Rainbow. It’s when he established seed time and harvest. How many of you want your holy harvest?
I hear a dinner bell ringing and it’s not from over there (a bell is ringing). I hear a dinner bell ringing and the Lord is saying, Come and get it.
:4 Restore our fortunes, oh Lord, like the streams in the Negev. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
So when you go out. How many of you have ever sown in tears? I have. Have you sown with tears before? How many of you have travailed in prayer over a circumstance or a situation? The Lord says those that sow in tears are going to reap with joy. That means there is going to be a return on your intercession. This is about the Return. This is about you come again again. You’ve gone out. Now you’ve come back and you’ve got the reward. He says, Trust Me. Trust Me. Enter into my rest.
When I come to Hattiesburg from Laurel, I can take Highway 11 and get off at Exit 80, which is PEY. We’ve entered into the Hebraic decade of the 80s. So I’m entering in through the Pey Gate. Or I go to Monroe Road. I like the high place. At that exit at Monroe Road coming southbound towards Hattiesburg from Laurel, that is the Forrest Gate. Because it’s the gate to Forrest County. When you take that exit at Monroe Road, it says Forrest County.
The Lord said this morning, Don’t take Moselle. Go down to Monroe Road. When I took the exit we entered into the county, ForRest. We’re in a county that is For-Rest. So we can rest in Him and sit at the right hand and rule from that place. Because you rule out of rest, not out of striving, out of the completed work of the cross and what Jesus has done and is doing with his intercession.
None of you in this room that are sitting have even considered whether the chair is going to hold you. You just know the chair is going to do what it’s going to do. You trust the chair to perform its function. He says, Sit down in Me.
Psalm 126 TPT. It was like a dream come true when you freed us from our bondage and brought us back to Zion.
Brad talked about what the Lord did in him last week and what he’s been doing over the last month. He’s setting us free from bondage. The Bondage Breaker came in. Now today Breaker Angels are here and with us. Your angel assigned to you or some of you, the angels assigned to you are now on active duty, says the Lord. Ready to run and perform the word. Boom! He said it so much better!
:2 We laughed and laughed and overflowed with gladness. We were left shouting for joy and singing your praise. All the nations saw it and joined in, saying, “The Lord has done great miracles for them!” (Miracle City) Yes, he did mighty miracles and we are overjoyed.
Now, Lord, do it again! Restore us to our former glory! May streams of your refreshing flow over us until our dry hearts are drenched again. Those who sow their tears as seeds will reap a harvest with joyful shouts of glee. They may weep as they go out carrying their seed to sow, but they will return with joyful laughter and shouting with gladness as they bring back armloads of blessing and a harvest overflowing!
I decree and declare over you and me today, Be it unto us according to the word of the Lord that has been spoken over us personally, that has been spoken over us corporately, that has been spoken over our land, that has been spoken over our gates, our cities, our states, our nation, and the nations.
Be it unto us according to the word that is written in our books. Be is unto us according to the time and the season, that we have come full circle and we are entering in to the promise. And that prosperity and the providence of God is upon us now. Let your expectation be that God is who he says he is and he is in the business of now doing what he said he would do.
He is going to take hold of your reins and instruct you in the night season. We are in the time of dreams and visions, so expect the Lord to bring them to you in Jesus name.
Notice how Regina said she didn’t know if it was in a dream or if she was awake, but she knew she had a God encounter. That is scriptural. So the Lord’s promise to you this morning is that the King of Glory has come in and he is releasing rivers of glory, rivers of revelation, and rivers of living water.
He is going to fulfill dreams, full circle; but he is also going to give you dreams and visions that when you step into 2020 you are literally going to be amazed at the goodness of God. You’re going to see your payday. It’s payday/Peyday time.
Regina. You always say you can’t make this stuff up. Recently I had this dream and there was this lady and my sister. I lost my sister back in the summer. She passed away. I didn’t know the lady, but they were preparing me like a bride. They were making me a ring with diamonds in it. The lady was putting big new diamonds in it. Then my sister was taking family diamonds and putting on top of those diamonds. She was taking diamonds that were even from my mother. I lost my mother when I was a child, so when I woke up I was real emotional seeing my sister, knowing she was giving me diamonds that were my mother’s.
I asked Holy Spirit what this was all about. He said, The season is coming when I’m not only going to give you new wealth, but I’m restoring to you all that was stolen from you and your family. So it’s restoration time.
Betty. Amen. Amen. Amen. And Amen. Just rest in that right now. Again, faith is not a feeling and I don’t want to mislead you in any way. But when she said that, not only is the anointing on my arms and my hands, now it’s like the Lord is pouring down on my face. So just receive him wrapping you in his presence right now and confirming his promise to you.
So Father, again we agree with your word. You said in the last days you would pour out your Spirit upon all flesh. That the young men would see visions, the old men would dream dreams, and they would prophesy.
I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams. Even on my menservants and maidservants I will pour out my Spirit and they will prophesy.
So Lord, be it unto us according to your word, in Jesus mighty name. Amen and Amen.
Praying over Don Nicaud:
Betty. Father, I thank you for the awesome opportunity as an apostolic house to send forth your son to the nations. I thank you for the years of preparation. He is a sent one, a called out one, anointed and appointed for such a time as this. We come into agreement with the intercession that has come out of your son to prepare him to go. Lord, we thank you that you are a mighty wall of fire round about him. As he goes forth in the places where he needs to be incognito, where he needs to be covert, he’s covert. And in the places where he needs to be overt, he’s overt.
Don, I hear the Lord saying that even as Jesus was able to pass through the crowd undetected, there are going to be places you go again as before that you just walk right out of the crowd, out of serious situations. But you’re going to know the power of God and the demonstration because Jesus is going to work with you to confirm his word. And the Lord says there will be highways and byways and one on one, and then there will be home meetings that will open and crowds will open. He is opening the way and making the way for you because you have been willing to trust Him.
The Lord says there is a deep abiding presence, and you’re going to have all gifts functioning in you. I hear the Lord saying, Firing on all cylinders. You won’t be coming behind in any gift. I’m seeing glory all over you. I’m literally seeing glory on you. Hei Hei Hei Hei Hei.
The Lord says signs and wonders and miracles. Signs and wonders and miracles and souls. Your heart is souls. Your heart is transformation in lives. The Lord says you’re going to cast the net wide. The Lord says he is going to bring in the haul. Thank you Father.
Lord, we thank you for every kingdom connection. We thank you for every appointed place. We thank you, Lord God, for your voice being upon his waters. We thank you, Lord God, that your voice is in his ear saying, This is the way; walk in it. That you direct his steps and you make them sure.
Lord, I thank you for full functionality and the gift of discerning of spirits. I thank you that even as dreams came and warned Joseph and warned others, he will get it in a dream. He’ll get it in a vision. He’ll get it in a word.
Father, I thank you for a rest and a glory in him. Hahaha. In Jesus name.
Anna. Lord, I thank you that your hand is resting upon Don. That you are ordering and directing every step. Just as it has been prayed that he will be hidden, and he’ll be revealed in time, as she was praying about miracles, I heard that it will be miracle, miracle, miracle, miracle, one after another after another. It’s like it’s contagious and they’re bouncing around everywhere. You’ll look at one place and you’ll be amazed by such a miracle, and then, no, over there; no, over there.
Father, I thank you for your miracle worker in the earth. Lord, I thank you that Don is your conduit in the earth. That he is willing. That he has given his hands over to you, Lord, to perform your will. To perform your miracles, your signs and wonders in the earth. Lord, I thank you for this vessel. This vessel that’s been willing and even willing to wait.
Lord, I thank you that he’s been so willing to go for you, but you’ve been saying wait wait wait and now he is being propelled, just like that canon of glory right now for such a time as this. I thank you that you are propelling him forward and that he is going strong and he’s going fast. And it’s going to be Boom, here comes the sound, just like we sang, Lord. I thank you that he is going into these places and he’s not only being your light, but he is being your sound, your sound coming into these nations, your sound coming into the cities.
Lord, I thank you for a sound of awakening coming. I see his feet hit the ground in Jesus name.
Nita Maselle. Lord, I thank you that it’s not going to be like old times. It’s going to be like new times. This is a new day and a new way. You’re going to teach in a new way. Lord, I thank you for that. I thank you that it won’t be hard but it’s by faith. Faith will work with him. His works will be by faith. They will be by the word of the Lord directing.
Lord, I thank you for his heart. That his heart can hear you clear. I thank you Father that everywhere in the ground of his heart there is no obstruction and that you are going deep, deep to prepare, to hear, to bring a production in the earth like he’s never experienced before.
We’ve come out of piecemeal day by day and we’re going into abundance where it’s been prepared and laid up for generations. So Father, I thank you that you’re ready to pour out the blessings of generations upon him and this work. And I thank you Father that his heart is ready and prepared to receive capacity increase. Capacity increase in his heart in Jesus name, of what you have stored up. Thank you Father.
Brad. To go along with what Nita said about the heart. When I came up here I saw your heart. The Lord your Father said, I have synced your heart to mine. You heart will beat for what my heart beats for. I am sending you, my son, to where my heart beats. My hearts beats where I’m sending you. I love where you’re going. The Father is saying, I love where I am sending you. Where you’re going. That’s where my heart is beating.
So I synced your heart to mine. Your heart is beating in rhythm and cadence with mine. So your heart is connected with mine, and my heart is beating for what your heart is beating.
Pat Bode. I hear God telling me, He’s got you on His righteous path and where you are going, He is with you every step of the way, on His righteous path.
Kimble. Father, in the name of Jesus, we just send forth your son. I thank you that you have filled him with your Holy Spirit. I thank you for revelation, wisdom, knowledge, and discernment. Father, I thank you that you fill him to overflowing with your peace that surpasses all understanding. I thank you that his ears are attuned unto you and that he is ready and willing to hear, to listen, to obey and go forth, to see your glory poured out before him, Lord.
Father, I thank you that you surround him with favor as with a shield, that even now you sent forth your ministering angels to go and prepare the way, to prepare the hearts and the minds of all those he comes in contact with.
Father, I thank you that the atmosphere has been set and ready, that he steps into that which you’ve ordained before the foundations of the earth. Father, we loose a hedge of protection round about him and that he goes with you and sees your wonder-working power as he goes around the world declaring the goodness of Jesus, the love of Jesus, and displaying his power.
So Lord, we bless him. We pray for him and keep him in our hearts as he goes forth on this mission. Father, we await the good reports that return, in Jesus name. Amen.
