12/16/18 Miracle City Global
Pastor Kimble Love. Welcome and Shalom. Straight from Israel. It’s so good to be back but it’s also good to be there where it all began, to walk where the patriarchs walked, where the disciples lived and moved and had their being. Where Jesus ministered to the masses. Performed signs, wonders and miracles. And saved the whole world by His sacrifice.
So Lord, we enter in today to seek your face and experience your love and grace and mercy in a deeper way. Holy Spirit come and breathe upon your people. Lord, we take a stand today for righteousness. For your truth, for your light to manifest in excessive ways, to repel and disperse the darkness that the enemy would so like to cover us with.
But Father, I thank you that you have not given us a spirit of fear, but that of power, love and a sound mind. We look to you today, Father God, as the author and perfecter of our faith, as our salvation, our deliverer and our healer, our strength, our hope and our future.
Lord, I declare that nothing will derail the purpose that you have for each of us individually and collectively. Because as we walk, we’re not moved by circumstances and things around us—the raging seas and the ravenous storms. But we look unto your face Jesus and we reach out our hand and you take hold of us. And you raise us up above all circumstances. We choose this day to follow you. To not be moved, but to be led by you and your Spirit.
So Lord, as we enter into worship this morning, I ask that we give you all that we are and all that we ever hope to be, that we submit to your lordship and your authority. We say, Have your way, Lord. Cover us with your blood. Fill us with your Spirit. Anoint us with your anointing. Break every yoke that would hinder and bind us so that we can flow freely in the purpose that you have for us. We give you praise and we give you glory and we honor you this day. Have your way. Jesus come. Amen and Amen.
?I will pursue you. I will pursue your presence. I’m pressing into you. So do not pass me by. I’m breaking through the boundaries. I will not be denied. Open my eyes. Search me inside. I can’t live without your presence.
I can’t live if living is without you, Jesus. I won’t make it on my own.
Falling on my knees in worship. All I am is yours. I call. You answer. And you came to my rescue and I want to be where you are. I want to be with you where you are.
My life be lifted high. Our world be lifted high. Our love be lifted high. My love is Jesus. My love is you alone. I’ve made my heart a home. Oh how we love you, Jesus. Our hearts adore you.
Kimble Love. Jesus, you are worthy. You are holy. You are more than our minds can conceive. The full riches of the things that you’ve done, the sacrifice that you’ve made for us, is unfathomable at times. Father, I thank you that through the sacrifice of your Son we have been redeemed. We have been brought back into your family. And you have filled us to overflowing with your grace and your mercy, your loving kindness, your long-suffering, your goodness. Lord, I thank you that you’ve raised each one of us up for such a time as this.
And I thank you Lord, that you’re still loving to us even when we’re unloving. Even when we have those moments where we have questions, and fear and doubt try to come and derail us. You’re always there with an outstretched arm to take us by the hand, to bring us back on course.
I thank you Lord, that you’ll never, ever let us go. Help us to stand firm and to never let you go. To hold on, to walk in the path, to look to you at all times so that we won’t miss the mark, but we’ll complete the task, the purpose, the destiny, to rise up and see your kingdom come in the earth as it is in heaven. I thank you Lord that we’re not doing it on our own. Even at times it may feel that way, but you promised that you would never leave us nor forsake us. That you’re always with us. You go before us and make a way where there seems to be no way.
Lord, we just trust in you and you alone. For you are true and all men are liars. Our faith, our hope, our trust, is in you and you alone. For you are the Good Father, the Good Shepherd. You care for your sheep and a stranger’s voice we’ll not follow. But we heed the voice of the Master. To walk in the very footprints as you go ahead of us. To walk as you walk and to speak as you speak. To see as you see and to do as you do. We honor you today and we give you praise. Oh Lord help our unbelief. For you are faithful and true and you’re going to do what you said you’re going to do. And we talk hold of it. And we will not shut up, put up, back up or stop until we see your salvation in the land of the living.
We love you, Lord. And we praise you. I love you, Jesus. Holy Spirit, fill us, keep us. Have your way. Have your way. Have your way, Lord Jesus. Glory to God. Amen and Amen.
Dottie Duckworth. A couple of weeks ago God showed me I had this open door in my heart. I could see the door open. I would see this every day, every day, every day. Then I began to see gold bricks being deposited into my heart. It’s not just money. I believe that’s part of it but not the whole of it. But it was good deposits that He was putting in the house. He put the Word in. And it was all good. I went through a little down scoop there and I couldn’t see the door but I knew the door was still there and He’s still making deposits. Well, this morning when I got here I saw it again. As I came into worship I saw Him sweeping out stuff out of my heart. So as the good deposits are coming in, the stuff’s coming out.
Father, I thank you for the good deposits. Lord, I thank you that in those times when we feel like we’re just gunk, that the deposits are going in and the stuff is coming out. We give you glory and we thank you for your presence. Lord, I thank you for this house and this family. And Lord, we love you. Amen.
Kimble Love. What a joy it is to be in the house of the believers. I want to share with you this morning some of the things I’ve experienced over the last 12 days in the Holy Land, the land of Israel. When I first had the opportunity to go I was a little hesitant. I didn’t know, but I prayed and as the time got closer, God began to provide and make a way and I started to get excited. It seemed like a faraway thing, but I woke up one day and it was time to pack a suitcase and leave the next day. It was really real. There was an anticipation and expectation because what stuck with me was that everyone that went there said, When you go there, it will change your life forever. That was my great expectancy.
When I got to Israel and went on the tour and went to all the places, I was looking for that, Oh My God moment that was going to impact me and change my life forever. I told Betty this. My whole trip and experience in Israel did not change my life forever. I say it like this because everywhere we went and everything that we saw and every place I was there, it confirmed everything that I believed that had already changed my life forever when I said Yes to Jesus.
What it did was remove any doubt of where my walk is. I say that to say this. Don’t think Pastor Kimble is where he was before he went. No. I’m a different person because any doubts that I may have had were washed away.
As I was contemplating and praying about how in the world I was going to share this experience with you, there is no way on God’s green earth that I can share with you in an hour or 45 minutes everything I experienced while I was over there. I experienced godly things. I experienced supernatural things. I experienced things in the natural. My goodness, the flight to Israel tested your salvation.
The reason I say that, is when we got on the airplane it was filled to capacity, and we had the privilege of going during the celebration of Hanukkah. It was also Shabot and the head of the new month. So we had a trifold deal going on. Most of the passengers on the plane were Orthodox Jews going to Israel on a pilgrimage to celebrate Hanukkah.
What was really interesting was that on this 10 1/2 hour flight they did their prayers and their celebration—morning, noon, night. And we got to experience that. That was an experience in itself.
We got there and it rained on us the first three days. Caesarea, pronounced Ceez’area, was an awesome place, a city fort built out into the Mediterranean. All through the night it sounded like a hurricane was going on. Lord, I didn’t come to Israel to be swept away by a hurricane! I remembered about Paul and the ship that got destroyed in the hurricane, so I would peak out the window and palm trees were laying over. It was something. But I was on a mission.
It was cloudy with light rain as we went to Caesarea, and the waves crashing in on the rocks were unbelievable. Then we went to Mt. Carmel where the prophet Elijah called out the prophets of Baal. They set up their altars and the God who answered by fire was God. We went to that spot and prayed. On a clear day you can see all of Jerusalem but it was cloudy. We prayed that God would release his fire and that He would pour out His Spirit and His mantle; and that the spirit of Elijah would come upon His people once again so that we could go forth in power. That was an awesome experience to be there.
Larry Gilbert. I was at Hope Fellowship last night and someone asked me if it was really real there. It was overwhelming to be there and walk where Jesus walked. To get out on the Sea of Galilee and then go to the Dead Sea where there’s nothing but salt there. I was amazed at God’s creation. You take your shoes off and walk in there and the whole bottom is completely salt. I really enjoyed some of the worship where we went—Martha Sarvis (?). There were three young ladies from Russia there and we got to pray for them and to worship there.
Then we went to the Jordan and got baptized. Kimble baptized us and Billy Joe baptized a few. As we were leaving a lady walked up to us and asked Kimble if he was a pastor. This man from Russia asked if he would baptize him. And he did.
We had communion and prayer at the tomb. Billy Joe spoke a word and a man from Russia walked in and he had communion with us and we got to pray with him. It was amazing how God set up those people to be with us. If you ever have an opportunity to go, I recommend you go because the presence of God is there and it’s really real. It was a great time and I would go back again.
Betty. What place spoke to you the most?
Larry. I think going to the Jordan and being baptized where Jesus was baptized really spoke to me. It was all amazing. To see where Jesus walked. Where the Roman soldiers fought. Where Jesus was born and lived and where he went and how he traveled across the land.
Kimble. God ordained this trip and put the guys together who went and he established relationships that will be from now on. Everywhere you went you could sense the presence of God. It was amazing to be in the places you read about in the Bible. I had a preconceived idea of what the countryside would be like, but I had no idea Israel was mountainous. You read about the mountains in the Bible, Mt. Sinai, Mt. Carmel, Mt. of Olives, and you think of them as mounts, not mountains. But Israel has some mountains. You can see half the country from them.
We went to Caesarea and saw the ancient ruins and how things were back then. We went on a boat in the Sea of Galilee. It was overcast and the waves were whipping up and it was like the conditions the disciples experienced as they crossed over when the storm came, and Jesus met them, walking on the water. This was the place that happened. You could close your eyes and see it, feel the mist of the waves and the wind blowing on your face and experience what they experienced then.
Going to the Jordan River for the baptism was very moving. With all the rain they had, the river was higher than normal with a strong swift current moving through it. The water was muddy like coffee with a little cream and it was cold. And there were people getting baptized.
Betty. In places the water is clear but in the baptismal spot it is muddy.
Kimble. As we were baptizing, there were ladies singing and worshiping. There was also a camera crew there filming a documentary, so we’re on that. I was the last one out and as I was walking I nodded to a young man and then I heard a lady say with an accent, “Him in the yellow shirt.” I represented the Southern Miss Eagles while I was there with my yellow shirt. I turned and the young man was walking toward me and asked if I was a pastor. He said, “My 81 year old father is for Siberia and he’s accepted Jesus. He wants to be baptized and we were praying somebody would be here to baptize my father.” He said it was ok if I was busy and couldn’t. I said, “No. God sent me here to do this.” That was definitely one of those OMG moments. The Spirit of God was on that.
The father didn’t speak English so I asked his son and daughter-in-law to interpret for me. Tim, a pastor who was with us, assisted me because the current was strong. I asked if he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior and he said he did. It was an awesome experience to baptize him. They thanked me and I was blessed. His son was living in Australia and the man came from Siberia. They met there having faith that God would provide someone to baptize him. I thought of God providing the sacrifice when Abraham took Isaac to sacrifice him. He had faith in God. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He changes not. He still operates the same today as he operated back then. We just have to have faith to believe it.
We went to the Dead Sea. We went to the Ein Gedi. You’ve read how God provides streams in the desert. The Ein Gedi is an oasis in the middle of the desert with a waterfall coming out of the mountain and into a grotto, filling up a small area and then runs down the mountain into the Dead Sea. And it’s been running for thousands of years. Everything’s dead all around it. And here’s this water coming down through the valley.
Throughout the countryside, especially in the desert, there are areas of thousands and thousands of acres of date palm trees as far as you can see. They are 30-40 feet tall loaded with dates. And they’ve got irrigation hoses running all through the desert. With these trees it’s like an oasis—fruit, vegetables, corn, cotton, all these crops growing out in the middle of the desert.
We went to Shiloh. It’s pronounced Sheloh. Shiloh was the place the Tabernacle resided for 369 years so I definitely wanted to go where the Tabernacle was. That place is special to me. That’s where Hannah cried in the temple and asked God for a son. The priest Eli thought she was drunk and told her to leave. She said she wasn’t drunk. She was barren and was praying for a son. If she could have a son she would dedicate him to the Lord. Eli told her to go home, that within a year she would have a son—and she did. The prophecy came forth. Her son’s name was Samuel and she dedicated him to the Lord.
He grew up in the priesthood, taught by Eli. Samuel heard a voice one night and went to his master, Eli. Eli sent him back to bed because he didn’t call him. The third time Eli told him it was the voice of the Lord and if he spoke again to say, Yes, Lord, your servant is listening. That’s powerful to me because when I was in youth ministry, I was seeking the Lord in the Colorado mountains. It was the first time I heard the voice of the Lord, and it came to me like that. Three times He called my name. After the third time I realized it was the voice of the Lord.
The cool thing about that is my name is Samuel. So the Lord spoke. And I needed to go to that place and experience that place and lay my feet and hands on that place where the Lord spoke to Samuel and called him into the ministry. That will impact your life. I even got a rock from there. Believe me, they are not going to miss it. There are rocks there, oh my!
I know why the main method of killing people over there was by stoning, because you can kill someone anywhere you are. Just reach down and you have a weapon.
We went to Bethel. House of God. It’s Beth’EL. I’m getting my Hebrew going on. Jacob went through the land and when it was time to sleep, he laid his head on a rock. He had a vision of a stairway or ladder and saw angels descending from heaven to earth. I’ve thought a rock for a pillow wouldn’t be very comfortable. On that site there is a slab in the ground with a long rolled knoll that’s just like a pillow. I thought, I could snooze here.
At Bethel Jacob also had an experience with an angel that came. The Word of God says they wrestled throughout the night. The angel of the Lord said to Jacob, You need to let me go. It will soon be daylight. I’ve got to go. And Jacob held onto him and said, I will not let you go until you bless me. Have you every sought after God and weren’t going to let go until you had an answer? Until you had what you needed? Jacob was like that. He said, I won’t let go until you bless me.
The Word of God said Jacob wouldn’t let him go so he struck him in his thigh. He basically dislocated his thigh bone and made Jacob turn loose. But he said, From now on you will no longer be known as Jacob. But your name is Israel. And that’s where the name for the nation of Israel came from. His name, Israel, means He will rule as God, and that he was the one who contended with God and prevailed. That means he kept on keeping on no matter what until he got what he needed. And God blessed him for that. There the nation of Israel was born through this man Jacob. That was a powerful place. I got a rock there, too!
We went to a mountain in the Dead Sea area called Masada. I really desired to go there. King Hezekiah had built a mountain palace. In 70 AD when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple and took the people captive, a group of Israelites retreated into the mountain. The king packed up and got out of Jerusalem. They were there for a little over two years resisting the Roman forces. They had water, food and supplies.
The Romans built earthen ramps from the floor of the plain all the way up to the mountain. That feat was unbelievable. They would send their soldiers up, their swordsmen and archers but couldn’t penetrate it. They sent battering rams up there and set fire to the gates. God changed the wind direction and sent the fire to burn up their battering rams.
When the Israelites knew their time was up, they knew they couldn’t hold out any longer. We hear in this country that Patrick Henry said, Give me liberty or give me death. That’s where they were. They were either going to be free or die. They weren’t going into slavery again. Been there done that. My understanding was that they committed mass suicide to keep from being enslaved.
Our guide showed a video where they selected ten men to go throughout the mountaintop and kill everybody. It was rough—men, women, children. After everyone had been slain, the men took little pieces of pottery and wrote their names on them, putting them in a jar. The name drawn was the man who would slay the nine and then fall on his own sword. And that happened.
They said when the Romans came in and discovered it, two woman a child was left alive to convey the story of what happened. That’s pretty extreme, that they gave their lives. As I thought about that and contemplated that, that is the kind of submission and devotion that God is looking for in us. You know the scripture, To live is Christ; to die is gain. He wants us to be totally sold out. To not just go with the flow or compromise our belief. But to trust Him with our whole heart. To give our all because He gave His all for us. That place was a moving experience.
When we came off the mountain, that night we had the opportunity to go to the Temple Mount. I have the experience of going to the Wailing Wall or the Western Wall. We had so many things to do. It was hurry up to the next thing and I understand that. But there were many places I wanted to linger. You know, let’s cut out four stops and I’ll just stay here the rest of the day. You want to go to the Wall. Because people have been praying there for thousands of years. They write down their prayers on scraps of paper, roll them up and tuck them into the cracks. I don’t know how many hundreds of thousands of scraps of paper were stuffed into those cracks. The night we went there, there were thousands of Orthodox Jews from the front to the back. It looked like there was no way we were going to get there.
I told Larry to come on, we’re going. We’re going to bulldoze through. There was a large Menorah near the Wall and not as many people beside it. We headed there, zigzagging and weaving, to get to the Wall. Next thing I know, Millard from the group is behind us, pushing us. We got up there and men were praying. A man moved and Larry got up there. A man moved and I was able to get up there. Then Millard got up there. So we prayed at the Wall. That was an awesome experience to be there.
I could literally feel vibrations when I laid my hand on the Wall. It was like it was vibrating. I’m not saying God was in that Wall, but the hundreds of millions of prayers that had been lifted up and prayed there, the sounds that were vibrating through that colonnade, were penetrating that stone. Jesus made a comment one time. If you don’t praise me the very rocks will cry out. I’m telling you, those rocks were talking to you. All those things that have happened over eons and centuries, were coming forth.
On our last day there, we walked throughout the marketplaces—the Arab side and then topped the hill and went into the Jewish side. We ended up at the Mt. of Olives in Gethsemane. We came down through the Via Delarosa—the Walk of Suffering where Jesus walked. We got to experience that. Places that were marked where Jesus would stumble and steady himself on the wall, we could put our hand there. That was awesome. But to walk the Way of Suffering. We ended up at the Garden Tomb. We had the experience to see the Mount of the Skull, Golgotha.
Then we had the opportunity to go to the tomb. I was able to go into the tomb and guess what? He wasn’t there! The stone was gone. The tomb was empty. He had arisen. He’s in heaven at the right hand of the Father praying for me and praying for you, making intercession for us who believe. It’s just a powerful experience.
There’s some conflict about it being the actual tomb because there’s another location at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher a little farther back up the hill. In my heart of hearts, in my spirit, the Garden Tomb is where it happened. I really believe that. But as our guide said, If it happened here, or it happened there, Hallelujah! He’s alive! Amen.
I’m encouraged. It put life to those things in the Word, things I wondered about. It put it in a new light. It made it more alive. It has stirred my heart and stirred my spirit. It has given me a determination to be a better man, to be a better person. But it also gave the assurance that I’m not doing this on my own. It showed me that I can’t do this in my own strength.
The whole time we were there I had a flareup in my foot and every step I took was like a knife sticking in my foot. I said, Lord, you’re going to see me through. And He did. I get home and nothing is wrong with my foot. My foot is as fine as it can be. Hasn’t hurt or bothered me or anything. It’s just an attack. Wanting me to stop and sit down. That put up, shut up, back up. I said, No way. I’m going through, pushing through. I’m here. This may be a once in a lifetime experience. I pray it’s not. I pray I get to go again. I’d like to go for a month and just hang out for a couple of days at every spot.
I want to encourage you in this. If you have any doubts, if you have any ways in you and you don’t know if God is going to show up and show out and do what He said He was going to do, He is real. He is alive. If you’ve read the Bible I want to tell you, I can authenticate it now because I’ve been there. I’ve seen it. I’ve walked where he walked. I’ve experienced things that the Bible has recorded historically. It’s there. He arose. He loves us. He’s for us. He’s not against us. And He will move heaven and earth to help His children.
Press into Him. Look to Him as the author and perfecter of your faith. When you’re down, He will lift you up. When you’re sad, He’ll make you happy. Don’t seek after the things of the world but seek Him. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Then everything that you’re in need of, everything you would want in this earth, He’s going to take care of that. But we’ve got to get our priorities in order. It’s Him first. It’s Him first.
He knows who we are. He knows where we live. He knows the things that we desire. He knows the stuff we’re going through. But He cares for us even if in that we have to suffer for a little while. But we’re not going to live there. We going to come out on the other side because He is the way-maker. And He desires better for us than we desire for ourselves. I can think of some pretty good things I desire. But He’s more than enough. And He is fully able to take care of everything that concerns us. We just have to let Jesus take the wheel, brother. Let Jesus take the wheel.
Father, I just thank you for this day. I thank you that you are real and that you are alive. That you’re just as real and alive and powerful and miraculous-working, supernatural God that you were even in the days of old. You ARE the same yesterday, today and forever. And Father, you withhold no good thing from your children who walk uprightly.
Father, we can’t be better; we can’t do better in ourselves. But with you, Lord God, under the blood of Jesus, filled with your Spirit, we can do all things because you strengthen us. Father, I ask that you continue to lead us down your paths of righteousness. Lord, that we not resist but we submit to you, to your lordship, your authority.
Father, even in areas we don’t understand and can’t see our way through, I thank you that you’re the way-maker. Help us to put our trust totally and completely in you. We yield our self-will, our self-love, our self-ambitions to you. We lay them at the foot of the cross. And Lord, we say, You take them up. You do away with them. And you pour out upon us the fullness of your will and your purpose for our lives. May we see it, take hold of it, and walk in it all the days of our lives. That we be the light of the world that you’ve called us to be as we go forth following you. Father, we ask this in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?Bless the Lord, oh mighty ones. Bless the Lord, you heavenly hosts. Bless the Lord, all you his angels. Let all the earth be his dominion. Come on and bless him, come on and praise his name. We give the highest praise. For the Lord delights in showing mercy.
Worship is my warfare. My praise is a weapon.
This is how we overcome. You have turned our mourning into dancing, our sorrow into joy.
Freedom is here. Fear has to leave. Pain has to go. Darkness retreat. Heaven. Flood the earth. Let your glory and your power, let your majesty and worth flood the earth. Oh we worship you.
Wanda. I see beautiful colored swirls in space with stars behind it. We are creating with our worship. It creates.
?All glory and honor to your name Jesus.
Betty. The eyes of the Lord are in this place to strengthen every heart.
?Oh in your presence. We want more of you. Pour out the new wine.
We turn our eyes on Him. We say have your way. Eyes, hearts, spirits wide open to you Lord.
Betty. I heard “Clean it. Clear it. Free it.” The Specialist is in the house to meet you at the point of your need today—spirit, soul, body. Full benefits of the covenant of the Lord Jesus Christ. We give you praise. We honor you in this place. Come and have your way. Right here right now. For your glory.
Kimble. II Corinthians 4:1 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
What stood out to me was, the god of this age has blinded the eyes of those who aren’t believing. God has put his marvelous light upon us and he’s placed us in this earth to be blindfold removers by the Spirit of the Living God that is within us. How will they know unless someone tells them? Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Walk in his grace and release his mercy. Live as servants of Christ every day of your life. Not just on Sundays but 24/7. It’s like the salt mine—we doze but never close. We’re always on duty. We’re always on call to release the anointing that’s within you.
As we worship we’re going to bring our tithes and offerings, our first fruits into the house, to sow seeds and make an investment into the kingdom of God. We serve a supernatural kingdom. When we sow into the kingdom of God it produces a supernatural harvest. We are a blessed people. God has equipped us and empowered us and given us the ability to produce wealth. And out of that which we produce, we give back unto him to advance his kingdom throughout the earth.
We come to the Table of the Lord to celebrate the life, death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. On the night he was betrayed, he met with his disciples and he took the bread; he blessed it and he broke it and said, “This bread represents my body which is to be broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me.” And then he took the cup, held it up and blessed it and said, “This cup is the New Covenant in my blood that is to be shed for you. Whenever you drink of this cup, do it in remembrance of me.”
As we come to the table and we partake of the body, the bread and we drink of the blood from the cup we’re saying, Yes, to the full benefits of the New Covenant. That Jesus laid his life down for us so that we could have life. He redeemed us and brought us back into relationship, back into the family, by laying his life down. He took the beating for me. He took persecution for us. He prayed in the garden, Father, if this cup can be taken from me, let it be, but nevertheless not my will, but your will be done.
So today we thank the Lord for the body. We thank you for your blood Jesus. We thank you for that salvation, deliverance and healing power that you paid for at the cross. We receive the full benefit of the New Covenant and we take your body and your blood into our bodies so that we can stand in your righteousness and go forth and produce and walk in the purpose that you created us for.
Father, we bless you today and we thank you. And we declare, Jesus is Lord. Amen and Amen.
?You make me brave. No fear can hinder now the love that made a way.
Here we are God, coming to the mercy seat.
I can see the lightning. I can feel the thunder.
I can hear the voices proceeding from your throne.
Holy holy is the Lord God Almighty.
There is no one like you. You are holy holy.
We join with the praise of heaven. You’re in our midst Lord.
We lay down at your feet Lord. You broke all the chains.
We bow down before you now in full surrender. There’s freedom in surrender now.
I will lay myself down at your feet. There’s freedom in surrender. So have your way.
Come and clean out every place.
Betty Love. Come and have your way in this place. Search our hearts. Search our bodies. Search our souls. Make us whole today. Have your way. We acknowledge you Lord in this place. Lord, I thank you for eyes that see and ears that hear and hearts that are yielded unto you. Father, I thank you for the now of heaven. Lord, this is not a history lesson and we’re not just singing a song.
Lord, we thank you that this is an active glory portal of your presence. And we acknowledge, Jesus you are Lord. You are Lord. You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords. You are our healer. You are our salvation and you are present here today. For the Word of God says that where two or more gather in his name he is here.

PowerPoint. Miracle City Global Official Healing House
I know that I know that I know that the Lord is going to bring healing to people in this room today. I don’t know what area you need it in your life, whether you need it in a relationship or whether you need it in your physical body or your soul. But I know that the Healer is here and I know the word of the Lord. And I believe that he is making good on his word.
I believe according to Jeremiah the word of the Lord says that He watches over his word to perform it. The full benefits of the New Covenant is not only that we are born-again, because we have put our faith and our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, that is the first and most important thing. Because if you don’t have Jesus you don’t have life.
Jesus said the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I’ve come that you might have life and have it more abundantly. I believe what the Lord wants to release in us today by his Spirit is resurrection power and life. I believe it is a day of restoration and full recovery.
If you are born-again then the Holy Spirit lives inside of you and this word should bear witness with your spirit that it is the word of God.
One of the things the Lord shared with me this week was, “I’m ready to roll, Betty.” That says to me that God is moving. He is ready to move in our lives. It’s personal. It’s corporate. He is moving in the earth. He is moving in Mississippi. He is moving in this nation. It doesn’t matter what it looks like in the natural, I’ve got on good authority that God has a kingdom plan and purpose for us and for this nation and there’s still juice left in these grapes and he’s not done. We’ve only just begun. We’re not giving up. Praise God.
In fact, the Word of God tells us we are here to occupy until he comes. It is time to live in active faith. It is a real relationship with a real living God, the true God. His name is Jesus.
As I sat with the Lord this week one of the things he spoke to my heart is “Trial Size. A small amount to sample. Miracles. Healings. My people have come many times and my miracles and healings have come in Trial Size. But now I’m pouring out superabundantly, liberally.”
If you travel, hotels have trial size products if you need them. It’s just enough. What the Lord is speaking in this season is that we’ve seen healings and miracles in trial size. I’ve seen blind eyes open, the deaf hear. I’ve seen God do some of the most incredible miracles in healing the sick, healing cancer, restoring lives. We have many among us, that are aligned with us, that have been delivered from addiction, you name it. Jesus Christ is alive and real and he heals. He has done a work in all of our lives to bring us to such a time as this.
But it’s not good enough for just me to receive healing from the Lord. There is a scripture that says, Those that believe in my name will speak in new tongues. The last part of that says, They will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. He sent forth his word and he healed us. It says, His blessing will be on our food and drink and he will take sickness from the midst of us.
Isaiah 53 is all about the full benefits of the New Covenant that Jesus has purchased for us. So thank God that we’re born-again because we believed. We’re in the family. Jesus is our elder brother. He is our Lord, our Savior, our King, our Bridegroom, our Foundation, our Cornerstone. He’s the Alpha, the Omega, the Beginning, the End, the First, the Last. He’s All in All. Without Him nothing exists. With Him all things hold together. He’s sustaining all things by the power of His Word. We’re here because there is a sustaining word that is being released. He is the Word of God. He’s all of that.
If you look at Isaiah 53, the Word of God says, By his stripes we have been healed. He was wounded for our transgressions and the punishment that brought us peace was upon him and by his stripes we have been healed. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. Jesus lived a sinless life by the power of Holy Spirit. We know that he went to a garden. Roger and Larry and Kimble, fourteen men out of the state of Mississippi went to that same garden where Jesus was tempted.
The enemy came and I literally believe the punishment that brought us peace in our soul, our mind, will and emotion, our heart. When he was in that garden, the Word of God says he shed great drops of blood. There was so much pressure on him. Scientists have confirmed that it is possible to sweat blood. So when that happened, I believe that the shedding of that blood in the Garden, anything that could come against my mind, my will, my emotion, anything that could hit my soul, Jesus took care of it in the Garden.
I don’t think I have to have a plop plop fizz fizz every day. I’m not putting down if you need or are on meds. But I believe there is a place and a time you come to where the Lord your God can heal you from the inside out. He will do it because he’s faithful. He died for it. He shed his blood in the Garden. No temptation has seized us but what is common to man. And God is faithful. He will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear, but he will provide a way out so we can stand up under it.
Sometimes in his mercy and grace he will just rip you right out of it. He will. But more than not, he will stand up in you so you can stand up in it. And he will make known his wisdom to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realm. This is my daughter. This is my son. I’m in the house.
Not only that, we know that he was arrested. We know that his back was beaten. What was it beaten for? When we get to heaven we won’t need healing. We need to settle it. I would say that everyone that knows us knows that Jesus Christ is the Healer—spirit, soul, body. When he died on the cross and gave up his spirit, spiritually he purchased us off the slave market of sin. He’s destroyed the power of death, sin, disease, sickness. The reason the Son of God appeared was to undo and destroy the works of the devil. It is a done deal. The judgment has already been made. The sentence has already been made.
I think everyone would agree with me. Satan is not going to stop. He’s going to keep coming and keep hitting you until you’ve had enough. Until you’re going to stand up in the Lord and by his grace say, Enough is enough. And you’re going to take the Word as a weapon and wield that sword, It is written, right back to him. I don’t wait for the enemy to hit me. I get up in the morning and I armor up. I put on my armor and wash with the water of the Word. And recognize that I have an enemy that has existed in the world. That Jesus has sent us here to take the ground, to take the land, to occupy until he comes. How do we occupy? We BE in Him. We release his light and his glory. It’s not as much what you say as what you represent. It’s who you are in Christ.
As I sat with the Lord he said, “There are things you have not understood at the time.”
Let’s look at this powerpoint now. Miracle City Global Official Healing House. It’s what he declared yesterday. He said it’s time to go back into the future. Back to the Future. What does that mean? Some of you know the movie, Back to the Future, that came out in 1985. Michael J. Fox was a teenage star at that time. He went back in time to 1955, a 30 year span. Some of us in this room are at a 30 year span in our lives, things we have waited for and fulfillment of vision. We’re there.
I know circumstances and situations, once you get there for breakthrough, whether you’re breaking through on the business mountain, on the education mountain, whatever mountain of society that your sphere of influence is, many times right at the point of breakthrough or birthing is when the enemy tries to come in or circumstances try to derail you. What I’m hearing the Spirit of the Lord say is, “This is not a time to lay down and walk away. This is not a time to be derailed.”
He is so into where we are in church history. I minister in all denominations. They introduce me in the Baptist Church as a missionary or a teacher so I can go there. I’m just being real. But I see a major move and outpouring of revival of the Spirit of God coming to America. And I believe an awakening like we’ve never seen before. It’s been spoken through every denomination there would be a last day great harvest. And I believe it is a global thing that is on us now.
I see the Lord desiring to bring wholeness into our lives. The Lord said to me, “It’s generational recovery.” I know Back to the Future is just a movie and you might ask what place that has in our lives today. The Lord used it as an example for me. Michael J. Fox went back in time to try to undo some things. When he went there he realized the condition of his family and where his parents were and the outcome of their lives where he had been. So he made a few changes.
I believe there are things in all of our generational lines that are worth recovering. There are some things we don’t ever want to recover. But there are things God is ready to restore to you, generation to generation.
Anytime that God gets ready to move, he is going to move prophetically. To prophesy or be prophetic is to speak forth the heart, the mind, the counsel of God. This is prophecy. The Lord said, In the last days I will pour out my Spirit and your sons and daughters will prophecy. Are you a son or daughter? Everybody here is. You might not call it prophecy, but when God speaks to your heart or speaks to you to speak to someone, or leads you, and you say what God has said, or you decree and declare to them what you’re hearing, you’re speaking forth the heart, the mind, the counsel of God, if it’s come from Him.
Anytime God gets ready to move, he never does anything in the earth without speaking to his servants the prophets. So when God gets ready, he is going to begin to speak to people from all walks of life. When God begins to move, he not only moves prophetically, he moves territorially. And he also moves generationally. He is about building generationally. We’re at a crossroads place and I know that you can recover what you have lost, or what your parents or parents’ parents have lost, in this season. It is a time to take it back. How do you do that?
Ephesians 5:15-16. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. See that you walk circumspectly—aware of your surroundings. Kimble Love is one who walks circumspectly. He does not miss anything that goes on in this house. Anna is the same way. In the Spirit, I’m there. My heart is to be aware, but they have to remind me to watch where I’m going! I’m working on that. The point is to walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time. Some translations say, making the most of every opportunity.
Brannon came up to me this morning and said your dad asked you to go hunting and you said your faith had just about failed there. Because in all this time he had been hunting he had never even seen a deer. So his faith was just about done there. But he went yesterday and was praying she would come walking by. She’s walking past and he’s praying to the Lord to let her come back down so he wouldn’t miss this opportunity. God, let her come back down so I don’t miss this opportunity. Opportunity is knocking at our door. And it’s personal.
The Lord says to make the most of every opportunity, redeeming the time. He’s going to open effective doors for you on different mountains of society. When those spheres of influence open for you and then he gives you an opportunity, you need to make the most of it. Redeem the time. Redeeming the time is bringing Jesus into that circumstance.
The Lord gave Kimble and me revelation on this a couple of years ago. What if I had missed opportunities? What if in my birthright and my destiny? Psalm 139:16. All the days ordained for me were written in his book before one came to pass. What if I missed a day? What if I know I missed it? Most things with God come around again. When you’re in the midst of worship, in his glory, in his presence, you’re stepping into a place outside of time. In Him, He’s Infinity. He’s past, present, future. He was, He is, He is to come.
So when you are in His presence, and you are worshiping the Lord, (we are about worship in this place) and you’re in his presence, and the Lord speaks to your heart something and brings you a childhood memory, maybe a trauma that happened in your life or something that was lost, or a business opportunity, or an education opportunity, or a creative arts and entertainment opportunity, we can just take that mountain now.
But when you see that, Holy Spirit reminds you and you’re in his presence, just reach back into that and take it back. Or if he’s taken you back and there’s still a wound or a hurt there, just step into that place and say, Lord I thank you that you heal me there. And he’ll do it. I’m living proof he does it. He’s ready to redeem the time for you. God is the only one who can do that. I can’t take back time. But I can certainly redeem it. And I can make the most of every opportunity.
These guys had appointments in Israel. We heard about the 81 year old man from Russia. It is something for anyone to be saved, but it does something on the inside of you when someone in their 80s gets saved. We’re talking about in the nick of time, right? But then for these guys to have the opportunity to participate in the baptism. Then the young man in the tomb, to break bread and have communion with him. Those were appointed times. You can ignore it and be too busy or say, Here I am God. Use me. God, let this opportunity come again. He’ll do it.
Be wise and do not compromise.
I would like to go to the hardware store and buy a plumb line for every one of you. I believe the Lord is dropping a plumb line in his Church, the body of Christ, personally and corporately. Because He is ready to roll. So he wants to bring us into alignment with the assignment. You might not be standing behind a lectern preaching or teaching but you are sent wherever your sphere of influence is to be salt and light and to be his ambassador.
He is saying, “Get ready. Get ready. Get ready.” You’re going to pray for the sick and they’re going to be healed. You’re going to share the gospel and people are going to get saved. You’re going to have a word in season and out, a word of encouragement that’s going to save a life. He has assignments and appointments and it’s time.
Do not compromise your relationship with the Lord. If you don’t have relationship with him, you’ll never have relationship with people. It’s about relationship. We don’t need religion. I’m not against structure. I’m an ABC123 person. But I don’t need religion. I need relationship when I’m hurting. I need to know that God is real and alive and he’s here and he’s now and he’s not somewhere up there, out there. He is a present help in time of trouble. So don’t ever compromise your relationship with him, your intimacy with him.
The Lord wants to deal with any place that we have drifted away. He wants to ignite a passion in you. I’m just as passionate today as I was in my early 20s, when the Lord restored our marriage and put us back together. We were wild children. God did a work. But God. I asked the Lord to never let me lose the passion. How do I keep it? It’s called relationship.
Do not compromise your witness to the world. Whether you realize it or not, people are always watching. When crises come, they’re looking to see how you’re going to respond to it. Is God really real? When Kimble III passed away, one of the highest compliments I could have gotten from my sister was when she said, “You’re faith is authentic.” Are you authentic? Are you the real deal? I hope so. You know when you really find out? It’s not that my faith is authentic. It’s that the One I serve is authentic. And he lives on the inside of me. When all hell breaks loose, I know he’s going to stand up in me. And you, too.
Do not compromise your opportunities to be thankful. Anna sang something this morning and it hit home. You have turned my mourning into dancing. In Psalm 50:23 it says, He who offers up sacrifices of thanksgiving honors me and prepares the way that I may show him the salvation of God. A sacrifice of thanksgiving is when you thank him anyway. He says to give thanks in all things. How do you do that? It is an act of your will and a choice. Psalm 50:23 really hits home because when you offer up a sacrifice of thanksgiving and you praise him anyway, it honors him. And it cuts a roadway for him to deliver you.
If you look that up in the Hebrew, it is national deliverance. What if the believers—I’m not talking about denominations—but what if all the believers stood up on the same day and decided that we all, as believers throughout America, are going to stand up and offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the true God, to the Living God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth? I think things would fall down in this nation. It’s time. Ephesians 5:1. Therefore be careful how you walk (live), not as unwise but as wise, making the most of your time (every opportunity), because the days are evil.
Matthew 13:15. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.
This is a word straight to anybody listening and anybody in this room today. He is speaking to the people of Israel and then Jesus is speaking to the people of his day, saying, this people’s heart has become calloused. That word is hardened. They hardly hear with their ears and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears and understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.
I think it’s interesting he does not go back in the order when he began to speak. He starts with the eyes. The Word of the Lord says, Send forth your light and truth and let them bring me to your holy mountain. On the Mountain of the Lord you will see or it will be seen. It says in Proverbs, Eyes that see and ears that hear, the Lord has made them both. Spiritually, just like we have natural senses—the ability to see, to hear, to taste, to smell, to touch—we also have spiritual senses. The scripture says, Taste and see that the Lord is good. Again Proverbs. Eyes that see, ears that hear.
Paul prayed, Father, pour out your spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you. Or, Pour out your spirit of wisdom and understanding so that they may know you better. That the very eyes of their hearts would be enlightened. Our hearts have the ability to understand and see. We have spiritual eyes to see unless we close them, unless we become dull.
What I’m hearing the Lord say today and what I heard him say yesterday is, “Healing House has begun. Miracle City Global Official Healing House. You’re not going to have to work at it. It’s going to be totally supernatural. I’m going to take the hype and the formulas out of healing. That does not mean that I’m going to do away with personality but I’m going to come in power and I’m going to heal my people.” And it’s time.
I broke it down. For the people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and the big word is TURN. That word turn means in the Greek to turn to, to cause to return, to bring back, to turn, to turn oneself, to turn about, to turn back, to come back, to turn around, to return.
In Hosea 6:1-3 is says, Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces. Now this is Israel. We know the wages of sin is death. Come let us return to the Lord. He’s torn us to pieces. But he’ll heal us. On the second day he will revive us. On the third day he will restore us that we may live in his presence. Let us press on to acknowledge the Lord. Surely he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
We are called to live in his presence, a life of abiding. If I just had here and now and the worship I would not be here. It is 24/7 and he wants you to walk with him. And I don’t mean religious. I mean relationship. Aware of him. Ear open. Heart open if He wants to speak something to you or he wants to use you. I can’t live if living is without Him. It’s the truth.
Send forth your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalm 43:3.
Isaiah 53:5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
This is a big takeaway today. Proverbs 4:20-23. My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
The Lord wants to heal our eyes. He wants to heal our ears. He wants to heal our hearts. I can discern in here and I know there is nobody in here in gross sin. But if there is a dullness of hearing or if there is a place where you are not really seeing and you don’t have understanding, I can tell you that the blinders are coming off.
In Psalm 139:23-24, he says, Search me and know me. See if there is any hurtful, offensive or even wicked way in me. If there is any hurt place.
We’re going to close in worship and pursuit. We’re going to ask the Lord to strip everything away. A key to walking in health. The Word of God says in II John that it is God’s will that above all things that we prosper and be in health even as our soul prospers. There is connection between our spirit, our soul and our bodies. You get one out of kilter, it has the ability to affect the other.
As I was praying and resting before the Lord, he began to speak this message to me, about opening our eyes in this season. We are at the end of the gregarian year and we are about to step into a new year. And we wants to bring us refreshing and renewal now.
Pay attention to what I say. He wants to meet with you. Just like the Father walked with Adam in the cool of the day. He is alive and real.
Jesus said, All my sheep hear my voice and follow me. They’ll not harken unto the voice of a stranger. Lord, this morning you are giving us an opportunity and you have decreed to us, Miracle City Global Official Healing House, that the Specialist was here today. Lord I pray that you would move first on me, Lord, but you would move on every heart, every man, woman and child that’s in this place, those that are aligned with us in ministry, those that are watching or are going to watch by livestream, Lord, that the blinders would come off. Any place where the God of this age has blinded us, Lord, let spiritual blinders be removed. Let us personally not miss those blind spots or be so about the speck in our brother’s eye when we have a plank in ours.
Come and search us, oh God. Come and strip away the layers. You said you wanted to take us back to the future so that we could recover. I decree and declare for full recovery over our lives, over our families—land, seed, blessing. We possess the gates of our enemies and the cities of our enemies. It’s our covenant, Lord. It’s what you died for. So we acknowledge you, Jehovah Rapha, our Healer. We acknowledge the blood covenant that by your stripes we have been healed.
You’ve carried our pain and our sorrow. Lord, let there be an exchange today. And come and do what only you can do. Open our eyes to see and our ears to hear and our hearts so that we can turn and be healed in this season. Gonna turn. Gonna turn to you. I want you to fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Who for the joy set before him endured the cross. Set your hearts and minds on things above where you’re seated in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus.
?Strip everything away till all I have is you. Undo the veil so all I see is you.
I will pursue you. I will pursue your presence. I’m coming after you. Open my eyes.
Search me inside. I can’t live without your presence. I can’t live if living is without you.
