Judah Goes First
Anna Love. This morning the Lord began impressing on me his blood, the power in his blood, what all his blood encompasses, and what all his blood represents. We’ve talked recently about making much of his blood, because sometimes we become so used to it, so used to hearing about it, especially in our Christian walk, in the Church, in all of it.
I was being reminded that the blood of Jesus is sufficient, and we know that. But it’s sufficient for whatever we have need of. Whatever that is, whether it be sickness, or sin, or feeling we’re not enough, or if it has to do with our identity. Whatever it is, the blood covers everything. It encompasses everything.
Whenever we’ve born-again and we ask Jesus to live on the inside of us, his very blood flows through us, and we have a change in our DNA. What we once were, we’re not longer that way. So anything that goes against the blood of Jesus has no place in you because it’s been routed out by his blood.
For a long time, when dealing with things in my own personal life, the Lord had me take 30 scriptures that talk about what the blood does for us and who we are because of the blood. I want us to proclaim and declare those scriptures today, and claim them. A lot of times we decree and declare but this morning I feel really impressed that we need to claim what the blood does, claim it as our own.
It’s a free gift yet it cost him everything and we can lay claim to it because it’s ours. He did it for us. It’s the ultimate gift.
Many of you have seen our prayer declarations we’ve put on our website and facebook. If you went through the teaching deliverance class, you have a copy of those. It’s powerful and it’s the Word of God in prayer form. I pray those prayers every single day over everyone I have relationship and connection with, over each one of you in this house, and everyone connected with us.
We’re going to stand and do that together as a body this morning. It may feel a little lengthy but it’s important. It’s so important. Because there is nothing we face that the blood can’t cover. We talk about knowing that we’ll face trials of many kinds. But the Lord was telling me that when we face trials and situations and hardships and feel we should have reacted differently, and you catch yourself in that moment, don’t be ashamed and feel you messed up or whatever. No! Recognize it and change. Turn away. Let the blood in. Let the blood cover. Start being who he says you are. Be happy. Be excited that you recognize.
This is a time and a season where things are happening so quickly and that the goodness of the Lord is so manifesting, and that promises are being fulfilled, that when you see yourself making a wrong decision or having a wrong attitude, instead of thinking, I’ve just ruined everything, Stop!
I taught at Mary Martha last year, Stop, Drop, and Roll, if you start seeing something. Just stop what you’re doing. Change. Lay down. And let the Lord in.
I want to start off by proclaiming these blood scriptures and then I’m going to pray through the prayer sheets for all of us. So just be in agreement with it. Just lay yourself out this morning before the Lord. He’s so good. He’s so faithful. He never lets us down. He always provides a way out. He always provides a way up. He always has good things for us because he is Goodness.
The Blood of Jesus says, My debt is paid once and for all, never to return. So we declare, Hebrews 9:28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for him, he will appear a second time apart from sin but for salvation.
I am justified by the blood. Romans 5:9 Much more then have you now been justified by his blood. We shall be saved from the wrath through him.
I am forgiven because of the blood of Jesus. Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
I am spared from God’s wrath because of the blood of Jesus. Much more then have you now been justified by his blood. We shall be saved from his wrath. By his blood I am being spiritually healed. One day my flesh will be replaced with an incorruptible body. I Peter 2:24 Who himself bore our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, having died to sin, might live for righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed.
By his blood I am spiritually alive. John 6:53 Then Jesus said to them, Most assuredly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
By the blood my judgment has been satisfied and I am at peace with God. 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 by his stripes we are healed.
By the blood of Jesus Christ, our bloodstream is healed and Israel will be purged.
Joel 3:21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed, for the Lord dwells in Zion.
By the blood of Jesus Christ I am cleansed, holy, once and for all, made clean, made perfect in Christ. I John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as he is the light, we will have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all of our sin.
By the blood of Jesus I have the power to overcome the enemy. Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony, and loved not their lives unto the death.
By the blood of Jesus I am no longer under the curse of the law. Galatians 3:13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.
By the blood of Jesus I have been reclaimed from the enemy. Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace.
By the blood I am no longer a stranger to the covenant of promise. Ephesians 2:12-13 That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenant of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off are brought near by the blood of Christ.
By the blood of Jesus the final act of public expression has been made on my behalf. Leviticus 17:11 For the life of a creature is in the blood. I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar. It is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.
By the blood of Jesus I have been moved from the enemy’s kingdom to the kingdom of God. Colossians 2:15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
By the blood of Jesus I have gained the unmerited favor of God. Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption of his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
By the blood of Jesus I have been declared righteous. II Corinthians 5:21 for he made him who was without sin to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
By the blood I have been justified, just as though I had never sinned. Romans 3:24-25 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by his blood through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.
By the blood I am able to come close to God. But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off are brought near by the blood of Christ.
By the blood of Jesus I participate in the sweet communion of remembrance of sacrifice. Luke 22:20 Likewise he also took the cup after supper saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood which I shed for you.
By his blood my redemption will never perish. I Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you are not redeemed with corruptible things like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as a lamb without blemish and without spot.
By the blood of Jesus, Jesus testifies on our behalf that we are clean. He proclaims it. Revelation 1:5 from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth, to him who loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and has made us kings and priests to his God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever.
By the blood I am free. Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
By the blood I am protected from judgment. Exodus 12:27 that you shall say, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when he struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.’ So the people bowed their heads and worshiped.
By the blood I am free from a conscience defiled by guilt. Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
By the blood I am no longer condemned. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
By the blood I have been separated from the world and declared wholly whole to God. Galatians 2:20. I am crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me and the life I now live I live in the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.
By the blood I can proclaim total victory. Revelation 12:11 They overcame by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and loved not their lives unto the death.
By the blood I can enter boldly into the Holiest of Holies and live. Hebrews 10:19-22 Therefore brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which he consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, his flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
By the blood I have further revelation of who God is. Hebrews 1:3 Who, being the brightness of his glory and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
By the blood we can overcome anything. So Lord, we proclaim your blood over our lives this morning. We take hold of your blood. Jesus, we make much of your blood. We say, come and wash us with your blood. Lord, I thank you that you are washing our eye gates, our ear gates, that you’re washing our minds, our hearts.
Father, any place where shame or guilt has tried to stay, I thank you that you’re washing it away. Any place where we haven’t know who we are, whose we are, any place of lost identity, I thank you that you are washing and covering with your blood.
Just as this is a year of redemption, and it’s the year of the kinsman redeemer, we put a demand right now. We thank you that you are our kinsman redeemer and that you have covered us at your feet, Jesus. That you have covered us and redeemed us by your blood, that you have placed your covering over us.
Holy Spirit, I thank you that you are hovering over us, that you are hovering in the same way that you came and hovered over Mary. I thank you that you are hovering over us and that your creativity, your purposes are being planted within us, and that we are birthing them and they are coming forth. No sooner have you placed it in us than it is coming forth and it is flourishing. It’s not a long way, but it’s a quick thing. It’s an instant thing, Lord.
Father, we position ourselves this morning as blood-bought sons and daughters. Even more than that, we position ourselves as the Bride of Christ. I thank you that your blood has come and it has washed us and made us white as snow.
Lord, I thank you that your blood is bringing repentance and bringing redemption. Lord, not just in us as individuals, but in us corporately as a house, as a city, as a state, as a nation. I thank you that your blood is covering a multitude of sins and your blood is changing the very DNA. Lord, I thank you that your blood is changing the person.
Lord, I thank you that your blood is changing the land because your blood covers everything. We take hold of that this morning.
Prayer of Submission:
Father, I come boldly into your throne room covered in the Blood of Jesus. I submit and commit my entire spirit, soul, body, birthright and destiny unto you in Jesus Name. I bind myself to you Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. I choose life and blessing in Jesus Name. I come into agreement with your logos, every rhema word and true prophetic Word spoken over me and my family. Let the ordained days written in your book be established in us and in our land. Let us grow up in our salvation and walk in the full inheritance that you have for us in Christ Jesus. We come into agreement with your kingdom plan and purposes for us and all connected with us. JESUS I COME UP UNDER YOUR YOKE, YOUR AUTHORITY, ANOINTING, AND ABILITY TO ABIDE IN YOU AS YOU ARE IN ME. You are my Apostle and High Priest: I receive your mantle and ministry into my life. Let your Apostolic-Prophetic anointing uproot, teardown destroy and overthrow anything in my life that does not line up with your Word, Will and Way for me and mine. Father God, plant and build me in the land with all of your heart and soul for your glory!
Father, I receive Your Love; You are love! Father, I thank you that perfect love cast out fear, you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind, Hope does not disappoint us because you have shed your love abroad in our hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit. I receive and abide in Your love.
I receive Your blessings unto me; You are my blessing! I receive all that you have given me in Christ Jesus. I thank you that because I am the seed of Abraham in Christ Jesus, blessing you bless me, and multiplying you multiply me. I receive land, seed, and blessing, I possess the gates of my enemies and the cities of my enemies. Thank you, Father, that every spiritual blessing is mine in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. I receive the full rights and blessings of sonship in Jesus Name.
I receive Your Wisdom; Jesus, you are made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. I thank you that I am wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove. You give me words and wisdom that my adversaries will not be able to resist or contradict. You fill me with the Knowledge of your Will with all spiritual wisdom and understanding.
I receive Holy Spirit without measure – I acknowledge you Holy Spirit, God in me, God with me. I receive your ministry, your gifts (Word of Wisdom, word of knowledge, gift of faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, discerning of spirits, prophecy, tongues and interpretation), your fruit (love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control) your workings and administration – 7- fold Spirit of Jehovah, rest upon me- spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, knowledge and fear of the Lord. Make me of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord. Flow fount of God within me. All doors of the living God be opened, rivers be released. Jesus I acknowledge you as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. You are the Lord God of the Heavens and the Lord God of the Earth and Heaven Rules! Jesus Rule and Reign this day in my life and land as Father God has ordained. Day ordained by my Father, come forth and be covered in the Blood of Jesus and sealed with the Holy Ghost.
Father, I repent on behalf of myself, the Body of Christ, those that you have called me to cover and be connected with. Father, forgive us for any place that we have sinned against you, against heaven, one another or brought defilement to the land because of sin. Forgive us for any place that we have knowingly or unknowingly come into agreement with the kingdom of darkness, the elemental principles of this world, the traditions of men, ungodly association, ungodly beliefs, ungodly souls ties to people, places, and things. We repent, renounce and break agreement with these things in Jesus Name.
I come up under the authority of the Blood Covenant, the authority of Your Word and the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I release the light, the Voice and the power of the shed Blood of Jesus of Christ over my life, family, the Body of Christ, over our land, seed, blessing; into the heavens and the earth and under the earth – I apply the full power of the blood of Jesus Christ to cover me and those that I am called to cover and be connected with. I decree and declare the Blood of Jesus Christ permeates us – it separates us – it divides us from and is against the kingdom of darkness, the law of sin and death, all sickness, disease, poverty, the works of the devil and every demonic and human spirit aligned with the Kingdom of darkness. I release the power of the blood to drive a wedge and bring a complete deliverance from every evil attack, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, the pride of life, the traditions of men, and the elemental principles of this world. The shed Blood of Jesus Christ separates me and mine unto God and away from anything that would hinder our life in Christ. We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb, the Word of our Testimony and we love not our lives unto the death. I am not my own, I have been purchased with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. I yield to the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ. The Blood of Jesus has its perfect work in my life.
I proclaim and receive the full authority and power of the Living Word Of God. The Word of God is living and active and full of power, it penetrates and divides – soul and spirit, joint and marrow. It judges the thought and attitudes of my heart. I have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. I humbly accept the Word of God inborn by nature which can save me. I acknowledge, receive and release the full authority of the Word of God to have its perfect work in me and through me.
I acknowledge and proclaim Your name, that at the name of Jesus every knee bows, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. I bow down before you, I praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your Name and your Word. When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted. You have put your name on me and in me. Where your name is You command a blessing. I take you at Your Word – Jesus, that commands me to ask in Your Name – I believe and receive in and through your Name. You have given me power and authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, to overcome all the power of the enemy so nothing shall by any means harm me, or fail to meet the obligations of covenant to me.
Father, clothe me with the armor of light, the Blood of Jesus, the armor of Jesus. (Ephesians 6:10-18) I put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace, I take up the shield of faith to extinguish all the fiery darts of the enemy, I put on the helmet of salvation, and wield the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. And I pray in the spirit.
I bind myself to the Truth who is Jesus. Lord, you are the way, the truth, and the life. It is written, I know the truth and the truth sets me free. I receive the gospel of truth, the gospel of my Salvation. Holy Spirit of Truth permeate my being.
I bind myself to the Righteousness of my God in Christ Jesus. I am established in righteousness, oppression is far from me, I have nothing to fear. Terror is far removed; it will not come near me. If anyone or thing attacks me, it is not the doing of the Lord; whoever and whatever attacks me has to surrender to me in the Name of Jesus Christ. No weapon formed against me will prosper and I refute every tongue that would rise to accuse me. “This is the heritage of the saints and their vindication is of me, says the Lord.” I love righteousness and hate wickedness, therefore the Lord has set me above my companions by anointing me with the oil of gladness. I am clothed with the crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning and the garment of praise instead of the spirit of despair. My God has clothed me with the Robe of Righteousness. Holy Spirit of Righteousness permeate my being.
I bind myself to the Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ. My God is the God of peace who crushes satan under my feet. I fix my eyes and my thoughts upon Jesus Christ who is the author and finisher of my faith. I set my heart and mind upon things above – where I am seated at the right hand of the Father in Christ Jesus. My mind is steadfastly fixed upon things above. I rejoice in the Lord always, I am anxious for nothing. By prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, I present my request to God and the peace that passes all understanding guards my heart and mind in Christ Jesus. I receive righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Let your peace rule within my heart and within the walls of home and city. Holy Spirit of peace permeate my being.
I bind myself to the faith of the Son of God and renounce doubt, unbelief, fear and discouragement. I agree with God’s Word to be not afraid and be not discouraged. I am crucified with Christ and I know longer live. Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by the faith of the Son of God. I am strong in the Lord and very courageous. Holy Spirit of faith permeate my being.
I bind myself to the Salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ. I bind my mind, will, and emotions to the Will, Word, and Way of God. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ, that the very thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart would be within my thoughts. Father, pour out your Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation that I may know you better. That the very eyes of my heart would be enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which you have called me, the riches of Your glorious inheritance in the saints, and Your incomparably great power for us who believe. Father, thank you for ears that hear and eyes that see and heart that understands. The weapons of my warfare are not carnal, but mighty through You to the pulling down of strongholds. I cast down imagination, and every high thing that would exalt itself against the knowledge of God in my life. I command my thoughts to become captive to the obedience of Christ. I bind myself to the completed work of the cross with all of its mercy, grace, love, forgiveness and dying to self. I am loosed from every old, wrong, ungodly pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, motivation, habit and behavior and any strongholds in my life. Holy Spirit of the New Covenant, I give you the tablets of my heart and mind. Write the Word of God on them. Holy Spirit permeate and clothe me with Salvation, deliverance, healing, and prosperity in Jesus Name. I am wearing the garments of Salvation.
I bind myself to the Word of God. The Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of my heart. My God gives me words and wisdom that my adversaries will not be able to resist or contradict. I am wise as a serpent and as innocent as a dove.
Father, clothe me with Your power from on high, Jesus, baptize me and fill me afresh with the Holy Spirit and Fire. Let your rivers of living water flow out of my inmost being. I call my spirit man to attention to rise up and rule in Your true righteousness and holiness. I release Your light and glory and all that you have stored within me to flow out. I release the dunamis power of God to flow out of my spirit and permeate my being. I release your exousia – the jurisdiction of the Kingdom of God to come in me and through me establishing the rule of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. I release your kratos power – Kingdom Dominion to flow in me and out of me and into my spheres of influence. I thank you that you strengthen me in my inner man by the power of Your Holy Spirit. The law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death. I receive resurrection, power and life through the broken body, shed blood and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I ALIGN MYSELF WITH FATHER GOD, JESUS, HOLY SPIRIT, THE KINGDOM OF GOD. I SPEAK TO THE HEAVENS AND COMMAND THEM TO BE OPENED OVER MY LIFE AND LAND. LET YOUR KINGDOM COME, LET YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN IN THE LIVES OF YOUR PEOPLE THIS DAY. I RECEIVE AND RELEASE THE KINGDOM OF GOD, THE MINISTRY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND THE MINISTRY OF ANGELS INTO MY LIFE THIS DAY.
Father, I confess, idolatry, broken covenants, innocent bloodshed, immorality, and any disobedience to the Word of God as sin. We have sinned against you and defiled our land. Please forgive us Father.
I submit myself to you Almighty God – SUBMITTED TO GOD, I RESIST THE DEVIL. I RENOUNCE ANY AGREEMENT THAT I HAVE KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWINGLY MADE WITH THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST – SATAN, I RENDER YOU AND YOUR RULERS, AUTHORITIES, POWERS OF DARKNESS, SPIRITS OF WICKEDNESS, ALL THRONES AND DOMINIONS, EVERY TITLE AND NAME THAT CAN BE NAMED AND HUMAN SPIRITS ALIGNED WITH THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS IN THE HEAVENS, ON THE EARTH, AND UNDER THE EARTH -POWERLESS AND INEFFECTIVE AGAINST ME AND MY FAMILY AND ALL THAT CONCERNS US. IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST WE COME AGAINST, BIND AND BREAK THE POWER OF EVERY NEGATIVE WORD, NEGATIVE PRAYER, HEX, VEX, VOODOO, BLACK MAGIC, CHANT, DIVINATION, WITCHCRAFT AND ALL OCCULTIC POWERS OFF OF OUR FAMILY, PETS, POSSESSIONS, LAND, SEED, BLESSINGS, GATES, CITIES, TERRITORIES, TENTS AND TREASURIES. I AGREE WITH THE WORD OF GOD AND THE COMPLETED WORK OF THE CROSS, IT IS FINISHED – THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD NOW STANDS CONDEMNED, JESUS HAS DISARMED THE POWERS AND AUTHORITIES TRIUMPHING OVER THEM BY THE CROSS. THE REASON THE SON OF GOD APPEARED WAS TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL. I DECREE AND DECLARE THAT THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL ARE COMPLETELY DESTROYED IN MY LIFE AND LAND.
We and our seed shall live and fulfill the perfect will, word, and way of God in the earth. The power of peer pressure, ungodly association, ungodly beliefs, ungodly souls ties to people, places, and things are broken and cursed to the root. They are replaced with the goodness of God, the pressure of the Holy Spirit and closer relationship with God. We are not bound by the spirit of the world. We renounce and break agreement with the kingdom of darkness, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. All fetishes hiding behind fads are exposed and renounced. Every vicious cycle ruling over us by association, incantation, or generation is destroyed by the whirlwind of the Lord. Demonic grace is bound and blocked, and there shall be no time, resources, or favor that will work against the will of God in our life and land. All word curses spoken ignorantly or intentionally are cut off from us forever.
In the name of Jesus Christ, rebellion, stubbornness, disobedience, sickness, disease, death, poverty, and lack shall not rule over us or our seed. The kingdom of darkness shall not rule over us. We have been translated into the Kingdom of God – the Kingdom of Light. We have victory over death, hell, and the grave.
Father, thank you that the third eye of the medium is shut and all watcher spirits, familiar spirits are bound and blocked from my life and family and all that pertains to us. I break the spirit of death and every seeding and assignment of satan and his demonic spirits off of our family, pets and possessions in the name of Jesus. I decree and declare that we, our pets, possessions, our home, properties, businesses and all that is on it is covered in the blood of Jesus Christ. We are holy and set apart unto God in the name of Jesus, by His Word, and the Blood of Jesus Christ. No Weapon formed against us will prosper and I refute every tongue that would rise to accuse us. All assignments of the enemy are broken off of our lives and land. No backlash. I am more than a conqueror through the Lord Jesus Christ. He has won our victory. I and my family are gaining ground and bearing fruit for the Father’s glory. We will not be overcome. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony, and we love not our lives (the self-life) unto death. We receive Your abundant life Lord Jesus. The words of this prayer are programmed into the heavens forever – In the name of Jesus. I AGREE WITH THE INTERCESSION OF JESUS CHRIST THAT IS PROCEEDING FROM THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER. I AM SAVED, DELIVERED, HEALED, AND MADE COMPLETELY WHOLE. In Jesus name.
Right now we receive your words, Lord. We receive the power of your blood. We say, So be it.
?We receive the power of your blood. Your blood speaks a better word. Your blood speaks and sings over us. I receive the words from the blood. I receive the testimony into my life.
Ooh. Lay your burdens down. You’re in the Father’s house. You are welcome here.
You are mine, my son, my daughter. You are my child. I am proud to call you mine.
You’re the one we love, the one we adore, the one we came here for. We cast our cares on you, Lord. We lay it down. We lay it all down. You’re the only one who can carry it.
Betty. Father, we worship you. We worship you, Jesus. We worship you, Holy Spirit. We thank you that heaven has come in this place. It’s your house, Father. We thank you that you have renewed a good month for us. As we are stepping into the Hebraic month of Adar, celebrating first fruits, Lord, we come to give you the first fruits of our praise and our worship, to consecrate our lives unto you.
So Lord, we say separate us unto yourself and to all that you have ordained for us in this season, in this Hebraic month of Adar, in this Hebraic year of 5780, in this 2020 season. We thank you for awakening us in righteousness and truth, that we are fully functioning and present in our spirit men here today in this place.
We welcome heaven. We welcome your voice. We welcome the testimony of Jesus which is the Spirit of Prophecy. Lord, let us be awakened in our giftings in every spiritual sense. I thank you, Lord, that we have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to the Church. We have eyes that see and a heart that understands. Continually, we are turning unto you.
I thank you for the order of the day, that you author and you finish it, Jesus. We consecrate this day unto you. I ask that you infuse every person that has been ordained to be in this house today, those joining us by facebook live and appointed to be here, we welcome them. Those that are not, we bless them to be somewhere else.
I decree and declare that our God is a wall of fire round about us and that the glory of God fills this place in Jesus name.
Lord, thank you for infusing our spirit, soul, and body with the fullness of your Spirit, your blood, and your Word, resurrection power and life. Father, I thank you for the now of heaven that you have placed within Brad, a now word. I thank you for that apostolic prophetic anointing, unction on the teacher. As he brings this word it is life-giving and comes into our lives and into the atmosphere, and it produces and accomplishes what you sent it to do, in Jesus mighty name. Carry us, Holy Spirit.
Brad Roney. Month of Adar.
Welcome, each one of you, into the month of Joy. Joy Joy Joy. Adar is the month of Joy but we should be walking day in and day out in joy, because the Lord has deposited joy within us. We have wells and we have springs of joy waiting to spring up. Are you releasing those springs and those wells? Release those springs. Release the wells that are planted within you, that are settled within you, those wells of joy. Joy unspeakable and full of his glory.
The joy of the Lord is your strength, so we gather our strength for day in and day out living from his joy. So let’s walk in his joy. Let’s live in his joy. Let’s partake of his joy. Let’s spread his joy. Let’s give his joy away. I’m sure we each meet people day in and day out that we can look at their face and tell they are missing something. It’s the joy of the Lord. We have a gift to give, and one of those gifts is joy. So spread the joy.
The month of Adar is the twelfth month of the ecclesiastical year and the sixth month of the civil year. Everything shifted at Passover and we’ll study that next month at Nissan. Adar will start sundown February 25 and go through March 26.
Adar means glorious, fire, strength, to be wise, to be made great, and to be honorable. This is a month to overturn worry with the release of supply. Last month we made that declaration, that shout, that we see our supply now. We declared that it’s already here. The enemy’s scheme is to take our eyes off of what the Lord has promised and what he said he was going to do.
With that declaration of last month, the enemy will bring worry and fear and anxiety. I’ve seen it become prevalent over our society the last few years, depression and anxiety. Fear has run rampant. Those three things mainly, and a lot more. Those are the schemes of the enemy—to bring fear, anxiety, and depression upon us. It’s almost like a cloud enveloping our minds, our hearts, to where we have despair. But this is the month of joy to overturn that worry.
This is a month to develop your warfare strategies against the anti-Christ spirit. The enemy uses fear as a weapon against you, the battlefield of the mind and your heart—heart issues and mind issues. He wants you to be fearful of moving forward into fullness, stepping out into the unknown almost, stepping out into faith.
A few months ago I showed a clip of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It was the last test he had to go through to get to the place where the holy grail was being kept. You had to make that leap of faith. With his natural eyes he saw this chasm with no way to cross it. In his father’s book of notes on the grail quest, he wrote that you had to take a leap of faith to get there.
The enemy uses that fear. I know it’s a fantasy movie and fiction, but put yourself in his place. He’s come all this way, and now, how is he going to do this? Fear did grip him a little bit. But he took the leap of faith. He stepped forward and got a new perspective. Where is your perspective?
As the camera panned around you saw a bridge that has always been there, connecting one side to the other. But the bridge looked like the walls of the cavern. It was an optical illusion. Don’t be deceived by the optical illusions that the enemy sets before you that will bring fear. It’s a parlor trick.
I don’t like snakes but they don’t terrify me unless I happen upon one. If there is a barrier, I don’t mind them. I had a series of dreams, from the enemy I believe, where snakes would chase me, appear out of nowhere, small snakes, big snakes, sticks that looked like snakes, etc. I woke up from every dream with my heart racing.
I was like, Lord, I know this is not from you. This spanned for several years, one every once in a while. The Lord gave me a dream about a snake, referencing the optical illusion, what the enemy uses to strike fear. It’s his strategy against us.
I was in a small room with white walls, like in an older building with cracked walls and chipped paint. The furniture was in disarray, old carpet, etc. and I don’t know why I’m in this room. There a little hole in the corner and I see a snake is coming out of the wall, slithering down the wall and falling to the floor right before me.
I’m looking and as he’s moving, he’s not moving like a snake moves. It didn’t glide along and slither here and there. It was jerky. I’m like, This doesn’t seem real. I looked closer and saw something coming out of the back of the snake. It was strings. In my dream I realized that all the dreams before were not real, and the very thing the enemy was using to bring fear to me was not real. The snake was a puppet.
And the enemy was manipulating the snake with strings like a marionette, a puppet. That was the last dream I ever had of a snake. I realized from that dream it was a trick of the enemy, an optical illusion the enemy used in my subconscious or even as an optical illusion we see in the natural to bring fear, to establish a false belief.
God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. In the dream the enemy was contradicting the Word of God. I realized that when I woke up. I haven’t had any dreams of snakes since then. I believe even if I did, I would realize immediately this is just an attack of the enemy. I’m not going to believe this. I’m not going to be living in fear in my subconscious or in the real.
Betty. False evidence appearing real. Something I just saw as you were saying that is that fear itself can become an idol.
Brad. Yes, fear can bind you and shut you down. It’s a tactic of the enemy but we know to develop war strategies. To develop war strategies you need to know the tactics of your enemy. To be effect and develop a plan, look back in history. Great generals of the military, Four-Star Generals, Joint Chiefs of Staff to the President, come together and develop strategies because they know their enemy. They study them.
Even in the losses they have had in battles, they learn from their mistakes, and they don’t make those mistakes again. So learn. Take from my dream and learn a strategy. That’s a strategy of the enemy. Learn how he is coming against you or someone else. If you or someone else struggles with something and then saw victory in it, don’t keep it to yourself. The person the Lord might put in your path might struggle or have problems in that same area, and you’re bringing them a strategy to win victory and you’re building up their faith. As your faith got built with your victory, you are giving a key, a strategy, for someone else to win their victory. Build their faith to know when that thing comes again, or something that might resemble that, they will know right away.
This is the month to know your identity in the Lord. Your true identity should be reflected spiritually as well as physically. This is the month and time for decrees set against you to be broken. So what the enemy is decreeing against you, people you come across or work with, even family members, might have been unknowingly decreeing something against you. Like, speaking into fear or speaking into death, just by words alone. That’s part of the war strategy. It’s the strategy we’ve been in for years. What’s your confession? What are you speaking? That’s part of your war strategy.
This is the month of eloquent communication. It’s also time to get into celebration mode of ending certain seasons of your life. Don’t be afraid to celebrate endings. What happens at the ending of something? Beginnings. The new. Stepping forward. Don’t be afraid to step forward into your fullness. Endings lead to beginnings. Have you ever read a series of books. You end one book and you know there’s another book after that. How eager are you to start the next book? I want to know what happens next.
Or in the next chapter of the book. I’m captivated by the story. I’ve got to know what happens. Or a series of movies. I’m a movie guy. I like a series of movies that tell one big story. I think Marvel Universe did a great job of taking 23 or 24 movies over ten years to tell one story, adding a little piece here, a little piece there, developing it into one big story, one big climax.
So don’t be afraid of that ending that leads on and on to your climax, that leads on and on to your next. Don’t be afraid of your next. Don’t be afraid of your next. It’s time to celebrate endings.
Psalms 141:3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth. It could end right there. Right there. Set a guard over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips. It’s the mouth. It’s what you say, what you’re talking, idle chit-chat, dreaded word—gossip. Ever heard, Loose lips sink ships? They can definitely do that. I’ve seen people ‘chit-chat’ about someone and that someone happens to walk into the room while they’re ‘chit-chatting.’
Have you ever seen the expression of that person? They may have entered the room with a smile, but they heard what was being said and their countenance changed. Some people might just blow it off. Some take it to heart and their ship is sinking because of those words. So be careful what you say.
Psalms 141:3 O Lord, set a guard over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips.
Proverbs 21:23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue keeps himself from calamity.
Proverbs 6:2-5 If you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth, then do this my son to free yourself. Since you have fallen into your neighbor’s hands, go and humble yourself. Press your plea with your neighbor. Allow no sleep to your eyes, no slumber to your eyelids. Free yourself like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
If you catch yourself or someone catches you not having a guard over your mouth, and you’re saying stuff, and it does offend or hurt someone, God is not a God who hurts with his words. So we should not be ones who hurt with our words. Come to them. Humble yourself and ask for forgiveness. Whether they forgive you is on them. But do what the Lord has told you to do—ask forgiveness and be humble about it, and go about your business. Seek after forgiveness.
Jeremiah 1:9-10. Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, Now I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant. The beginning of that says, I have put MY words in your mouth. That is our desire, for the words of the Lord to be put in our mouths so we can speak them out. Lord, guard my mouth! It’s like a pocket door. It’s built into a wall, so it doesn’t swing out. It slides in. I see it like the Lord is closing our mouth, putting a guard over there. And opening an avenue for his words to come out.
But in order for his words to be coming out of your mouth, you must first have his words in your heart. You must daily drink in his words. Abide. Eat his words. We have said at different times, Eat the book of James. Eat the book of Romans, etc. It’s not literally eating the pages, but you’re taking the pages spiritually and chewing the cud or chewing the bone to get the marrow, to get the good stuff. So chew on the words. Get it in your heart. Get the good stuff. The marrow is the meaty part of the bone that produces red and white blood cells. It’s the good stuff. Dogs will chew and gnaw a bone until they get the good stuff.
In order for us to speak out God’s words, we must hide his words in our hearts. We must abide in Him. We must be infused with his words. Take, eat, drink his words.
Luke 21:14-15 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.
I would probably put a star right there for war strategies against the enemy.
Betty. It just popped out at me. I will give you words and wisdom that NONE. There are no adversaries that can resist the Word of God. Nothing.
Brad. None. Zip. Make up your mind NOT to worry beforehand how you will defend yourself. The Lord is saying, I already have your strategy and I already have your plan beforehand. It’s like a general developing a preemptive strike. I’ve got the plans, exactly how I want to do it. We will surprise the enemy. He won’t see it coming. I’ve got it laid out.
He’s saying, Don’t worry beforehand how you will defend yourself. I will give you words and wisdom. Not only the words, but the wisdom to use the words. Words and wisdom that none of your adversaries. There is nothing, no minions, none of them will be able to resist or contradict. You are not fighting the enemy to win a victory. You are fighting the enemy because the victory has been won.
You’re not going out on the battlefield to fight your way to victory. The Commander in Chief is saying, It’s a done deal. Just go out there. It’s a done deal.
The tribe for this month is Naphtali. Naphtali means a doe let loose or communicator. It’s interesting that Naphtali means communicator, in a month where we’ve been talking about words, our mouths, guarding our mouths, guarding what we say, what we’re confessing. The positive is good communication. The negative is tangled communication or loose tongue. Remember, Loose lips sink ships.
If we don’t let the Lord put a guard over our mouth, our words or confession could sink our own ship or sink someone else’s.
Naphtali was the sixth son of Jacob and the second son birthed by Rachel’s maid Bilhah. Genesis 30:8 Rachel said, With great wrestling have I wrestled with my sister, and I have prevailed. And she called his name Naphtali.
Genesis 49:21 Jacob claimed this over Naphtali. Naphtali is a deer let loose. He uses beautiful words. Beautiful means glistening.
When I read that beautiful means glistening, I love being on the water, lakes, rivers, ponds, streams. At my parent’s pond we have a dock. I can sit out there and there’s a certain position the sun reaches and shines just over the trees onto the pond and the water has a diamond appearance. It sparkles and glistens. It’s just beautiful. It’s like a sea of diamonds. I love that.
His words were to have glory on them. Glistening, beautiful. His words, the great communicator, were to have glory on them. Are our words beautiful? Glistening? Having glory on them? Or are they the opposite? Tangled communication? I would even say words of death! This day are you going to choose life and blessing? Or death and curses? Are you speaking curses? Or are you speaking blessings?
Tribe of Naphtali is part of the rearguard with Asher and Dan and they camped on the north side of the tabernacle.
Deuteronomy 33:23 O Naphtali, satisfied with favor and full with the blessing of the Lord; possess thou the west and the south. This is Moses blessing before he died.
Habakkuk 3:19 The Lord is my strength. He will make my feet like deer’s feet. He will make me walk on high hills (loose as a deer, swift, agile). The Lord will make my feet like hind’s feet in the midst of all my trials, and I will leap on the mountains.
Even in the trials, the Lord is making our feet like hind’s feet. And we will leap over those mountains, and we will leap over those trials.
Tribes of inheritance. Naphtali’s land is east of Asher and flanks the Sea of Galilee. This prophecy was fulfilled in Matthew. Leaving Nazareth, he went by the lake and the area of Zebulun and Naphtali, to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah: Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea along the Jordan. Naphtali of the Gentiles, the people living in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in the shadow of death a light has dawned. This was Jesus coming to this land.
The stone for the month is amethyst and the color is purple. The constellation is Pisces the Fish. It’s God’s creation, astronomy, not astrology. He created the stars in the sky and put them in patterns. He put them together in constellations.
Pisces, finding your supply in the hidden world. This is the month that Jesus told Peter to find the fish with the money in its mouth to pay the taxes. We coming up on April. Who’s gone to the lakes and streams and cast a line for their tax money? Let’s go fishing!
The letter for the month is KUF (koof). It’s to cover and strengthen. It’s removing the masquerade or masks, facades. It’s interesting that one of the parts of the celebration and festival of Purim is wearing masks. We’re in a month to removed the masks, the masquerades, the facades. And entering into joy. As I said, it’s the month of Joy.
The Lord wanted me to emphasize that this is the month of Joy. Enter into your Joy. It’s entering into the joy I’ve deposited within you.
The organ for the month is the spleen. If injured or diseased, it will swell; or it can be very small. It has a 5mm thick purplish-red capsule encasing a red pulpy material. It’s part of the lymphatic system. It’s job is to purify the blood. It also produces and stores blood cells.
The sense of the month is laughter. As Beau stated, legitimate or even fake laughter releases endorphins. It’s mood altering. It changes your mood and even your perspective on things. Joy, laughter is like medicine. This is a month of abounding joy and light. The month of overturning worry.
Psalms 2:4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them (his enemies). We need to hahaha! at our enemies, because the Lord has already given us our war strategies for victory.
Psalms 37:12-13 The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them. But the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.
Taking that scripture, we need to know, we need to confess, and we need to believe. The enemy was terrorizing me in my dreams with snakes, but I didn’t know his day was coming, when the Lord revealed that the enemy’s very weapon against me was all fake. It was all a facade. It was not real. There was nothing real about that.
Light will permeate your darkness. Root out depression and despair so faith can break through your thought process. I go back to perspective. Your perspective changes when you get a bird’s eye view. You’re looking down, seeing a bigger picture. So perspective is very important.
Take off the cloak of heaviness and put on the garments of praise. Psalms 30:11-12 You turn my wailing into dancing. You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with Joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever. Forever. Forever.
Proverbs 15:15 TPT Everything seems to go wrong when you feel weak and depressed. But when you CHOOSE (it’s a choice) to be cheerful, every day will bring you more and more joy and fullness.
It’s a choice. I know it’s hard at times to choose to be joyful. But it says right here when you choose—whatever the trial or circumstance is—every day will bring you more and more joy and fullness. He impressed on me two songs we sang in the late 80s, early 90s. ?This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. Rejoice in the Lord. Rejoice in the Lord. Celebrate the presence of the Lord for He is worthy to be praised. Rejoice in the Lord.
It’s a choice. Choose to rejoice in the Lord. And stir up that joy that is already within you. That’s how you release the joy that’s planted in you, those wells and springs of joy. No matter what you’re feeling or seeing with your natural eyes, celebrate the presence of the Lord, for he is worthy to be praised.
?Rejoice, for the steps of the righteous man, they are ordered of God. They are ordered of God. In the time of trouble, God will uphold you. God will preserve you. God will sustain you. In the time of trouble, God will lift you up. So rejoice, your steps are ordered of God.
Confess that. Make that a daily confession. This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. Every morning you wake up, you’re struggling; you’re groggy. I’ve got ten hours of work ahead of me. I’ve got a 45 minute drive. I’ve got traffic up and down Hardy Street, Hwy 49. Those things can process in your mind and bring you down.
But confess, This is the day that the Lord has made for me, specifically. The Lord didn’t just haphazardly create a day. Think of it as, The Lord created a day for me and I will rejoice in it!
Rejoice that your steps are ordered by God. He took the time to write pages in your book, ordering your steps, day in and day out, redeeming the time. Time is in the glory. You’re going to step into glory and redeem time. The days of lamenting are OVER. FOREVER. They are OVER FOREVER. You will not lament the past nor the future.
Who has ever looked back in your past and it grips you? I’m almost ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed. I have regrets. The Lord is here to redeemed the time. Whatever time you’ve lost, whatever time the enemy has stolen from you, claim and decree and declare that the Lord is redeeming your past and your future and your present.
Ephesians 5:15-16. Be very careful then, how you live. Not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil. Don’t be so absorbed in the past, and don’t be so absorbed in the future to come, because when you do that, you miss what’s right in front of you today. That was something the Lord showed me 8-9 years ago. At the time I was regretting my past. And my future looked uncertain.
He said, Don’t look at the Egypt you came out of. Even at this point, don’t be so focused on the promised land in front of you. I have something for you today. His mercies are new every morning. When you get up in the morning, know that God has something new for you.
Colossians 4:5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders. Make the most of every opportunity.
Psalms 107:2 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story, those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, redeeming the time.
Purim. Festival of Lights. This is the festival the Jewish people celebrate in the month of Adar. It is celebrated on Adar 14 and 15. In the book of Esther, Haman was out to kill Mordecai and then destroy and exterminate the Jewish people, when he found out Mordecai was Jewish. Haman manipulated and tricked King Xerxes of Persia into declaring that the Jewish people were to be killed, exterminated, eliminated.
Haman cast lots or purim to decide the day to do this. It came up Adar 13. This is when his plan was going to take place. But God raised up Esther as Queen beforehand, wartime strategies and plans, to use Esther to save his people. Remember God had a covenant with the Jewish people.
Mordecai uncovered the plan and Esther presented herself to Xerxes and pleaded her case for not only herself, but her people. And Haman’s plan was rendered null and void. A new declaration was made by Xerxes to reverse the first order. So the Jewish people won a victory over Haman and the Persians who were being weaponized to kill them. They won their victory on Adar 14.
On Adar 15 they celebrated, for they were in the walled cities that were outside of the main territories. They celebrated for two days, Adar 14-15. Last year we were in a leap year. We were in a pregnant year. We had Adar I and Adar II. Last year Purim was celebrated in Adar II. It commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from the hands of Haman as told in the book of Esther. Eat the book of Esther and see the details, the way God orchestrated it all to the saving of his people.
Also, Purim bridges over to Passover. We’ve got two instances where God’s people were saved and delivered from the hands of their enemy.
Kimberley Davis. She prayed a prayer that would foresee Nazi Germany. When she said, Do it again, the way it happened with Haman and his sons was the same way it happened with those people in Germany.
Brad. That’s three instances right there. That goes back to, if you bless Israel you’ll be blessed; if you curse Israel you’ll be cursed.
I want to decree this: Month of Adar decree and declaration. Father, I ask that you remove our masks, revealing our true identities and gifts. Show us how to grow and develop in our gifting. No more will we try to be something we are not, nor will we try to operate in someone else’s gift.
I thank you that the curses over me, my family, and all of your people are overturned, and your sweetness will flow to me and through me. I thank you for hidden supply that is being and will continue to be revealed. Uproot and overthrow any worry or anxiety that causes us to fret. Open our eyes so we can see our supply lines.
Father, forgive us for complaining and worrying about what you have already promised. I plead the blood of Jesus over every negative word that I have spoken about myself or anyone else. And over every negative word spoken about me—past, present, and future. In the name of Jesus I break every ungodly decree spoken by me or about me—past, present, or future.
Lord, help us guard our hearts and tame our tongues. Lord, we choose with your help to take off and exchange the cloak of heaviness with the garment of praise. Reveal to us your war strategy for us against the enemy. The Amalekite giants will not cause us to fear nor will they stop us from moving forward to the fullness of the next season. Reveal to us any idolatry in our lives that we may repent and turn from it.
Father, I pray that the leadership in our families, churches, and government will awaken and be properly aligned with you, your times and seasons so we won’t miss our time. Thank you for seedtime and harvest. Our seeds will produce fruit, time, money, children. Thank you for revelatory flow that is moving us into the fullness of your plan. Open our eyes to the enemy’s tactics to disrupt your plans that would cause us to be diverted or delayed in any way.
Our times are in your hands and we will walk through our circumstances and into the blessings and plans you have ordained for us before the foundations of the world. We will come full circle to your original intent for our lives. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of the mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Amen.
?Set me ablaze with an endless passion. Breathe, come and breathe on the coals of my heart. Let your fire start.
Kimble Love. Yes, Lord, breathe on the coals of our hearts. Revive us, restore us, enlighten us, fill us with your grace, your mercy. And may we overflow with your love and with your joy.
Welcome to Miracle City Global this morning. This is the month of joy, Adar. Joy is a choice. Love is a choice. Our mindset is a choice. We can choose to be happy. We can choose to be sad. It’s your choice. I choose to be happy. I choose to walk in joy.
One of the things I do when I first wake up, the first thought that comes to me is, Lord, I thank you for awakening me refreshed, renewed, and ready to go forth. I say, Lord, I thank you that opportunities abound. Let the adventure begin and start my journey today. Every day. I encourage you to do that. You might say, Well, you have good days and bad days. I choose to have good days. Because you frame your day by what you say.
If you want to agree that you’re going to have a bad day, then you’re going to have a bad day. But if you arise with the joy of the Lord being your focus, then whatever you face throughout the day, you attack with the joy of the Lord. That you’re going to seek opportunity, that every day is an adventure and you’re on your journey, walking in your purpose and heading toward your destiny. It’s going to change your whole outlook on your life.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. We need to start living our lives for Him. Not just in concept, not just in words, but by action. Actions speak louder than words. You can say a lot of things, but what you do is what people see.
I declare today that we are a people that walk in joy. Let’s make a declaration.
Lord, we welcome the month of Adar. We acknowledge that Adar is a month of Joy. And I declare that I will walk in the fullness of joy because the joy of the Lord is my strength. I will face every day looking for the opportunities that you send my way. I will enjoy the adventure that you lead me on as I go forth in my journey, walking in my purpose heading toward my destiny in Jesus name. Amen.
If you’ve got Jesus you should be the happiest human on the face of the earth. He is our hope, our future, and our very great reward. We have been saved, healed, and delivered. Not by our faith in the Son of God, but it’s the faith OF the Son of God that’s been dispensed into us. It’s His faith. It’s His life. It’s His anointing. It’s His power. It’s His voice. It’s His resurrection living on the inside of me. So therefore, I can truly say, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me because he is the force, the source that empowers me to do what I do.
Lord, we thank you for your infilling. We thank you, Lord Jesus, that you have deposited your faith within us. And that you have given us gifts, talents, and abilities to go forth, to be the sons and daughters that you created us to be. Father, I declare today that we rise up, that we stand and go forth in dominion and authority, led by your Spirit, calling those things that aren’t as though they were; and seeing this world changed and coming back into your original intent.
So Father, use us mightily this day and every day to advance your kingdom and see your glory cover the earth once again like the waters cover the sea. We are going to worship the Lord of Lords and the Kings of Kings, and he is going to move through this place and show himself mighty. Let’s worship.
?My God will never fail. There is power in the mighty name of Jesus. You take what the enemy meant for evil and you turn it for good. I’m gonna see the victory. It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by you. The Lord strong and mighty in battle. He is our King. No weapon formed against us will prosper. The Lord fights for us. Gonna lift our voice in victory. Gonna make our praises loud. We lift your name. My victory’s in Jesus name.
Betty Love. I want to testify to the goodness of the Lord. I’m in total agreement with with Kevin was saying. You need to look and you need to decree the victory. Because the victory is yours and mine when the battle is the Lord’s. I believe last night as we came in this place that the Lord literally set us up for victory. We opened with this song. And the songs that followed were blood songs, power songs, victory songs.
When Beau began to speak, I got a phone call from my sister-in-law Brenda, and Holy Spirit quickened me to take the call. I don’t normally take phone calls during service. She said, I need you to pray NOW. And her voice broke like somebody knocked the breath out of her. She said, Kourey, who is my nephew’s fiancé, is on Hwy 433, had just come down Hwy 3 and about 7 miles from my brother and sister-in-law’s house, and there had been an explosion of carbon dioxide. A line underground exploded. The girl in the vehicle in front of her was passed out. She was at ground zero. The 18-wheeler in front of that vehicle was not moving. In that kind of situation the vehicles go dead. It sucks all the oxygen out.
My sister-in-law had been on the phone with her and she said, I don’t know what’s happened. We heard a loud sound. I feel strange. I feel strange. And she was gone. She had tried to get my nephew. He hops in the car and heads towards the place. My sister-in-law tries to get him not to. He goes anyway. She follows him. He gets through but by the time she gets there, they have blocked the highway. So she is sitting at the gate on the phone with me.
The first thing out of my mouth was, No deadly poison! We didn’t know what had happened. We just knew something was in the air. She said, I don’t know if she’s alive or dead. We began to decree and declare, No deadly poison shall harm them, binding death. It was like a machine gun coming out of my mouth. I grabbed Brad after I got off the phone to come outside with me and just agree.
I got the rest of the story today. We’re decreeing victory. Because the Lord knows the end from the beginning and he knows what’s in front of us. Like Kevin said, Let’s praise on this side of the Red Sea. I believe the intercession and the praise had already been decreed into the heavenly realm.
Last Sunday we stood up in the gates of this nation and at first light we decreed and declared that the death structures, the vertical limits zones, the spirit of death was being broken off the nation of America. We’re not backing off of that.
So when my nephew gets to the vehicle, she is passed out. He opens the door and then he begins to feel the affects of the gas. There is an emergency rescue guy out of Yazoo City in his own truck with hay in the back of it. He helps Clay get Kourey, lays her down in the back of the truck and tries to get to fresh air, out of the zone. Kourey stops breathing twice and comes back.
By this time my brother has come to the gate and he told them, My son has gone in. In ten minutes if he’s not back, I’m going in. He would have. They get out and get back to the house. They evacuated all of Sartaria, Yazoo County area. It was 4-5 hours before they could go back to their homes. It was a serious thing.
?I’m going to see a victory.
Do you know what the enemy would like to have done? My brother, my sister-in-law, my nephew, and my niece-to-be laid out in body bags.
?I’m going to see a victory because the battle belongs to you, Lord.
So I decree and declare Victory Victory Victory in Jesus. And there is power in the blood of Jesus. Because we decreed his name, we bound death. We released the power of the blood. We said, Lord, send your angels, whatever you need to do to get them out. Send them in now.
That man was in the right place at the right time. And not for just them. We were praying for everyone involved. I see the good thing, because I see the Lord. And I decree victory over everyone in my house, in Jesus name. All glory to you, Jesus.
?Ooh! Lay your burdens down here in the Father’s house. Miracles take place. God is so good. He’s so good to me.
Kimble Love. This is our Father’s house. We’ve got the best Dad in the whole world. Who’s your Daddy? He’s a good good Father. I can hear that song, ?He’s the very best Dad in the whole world. He’s the very best Dad in the whole world, in the whole world. It just goes on and on. But he’s the best.
As we continue to worship this morning, it’s all about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It’s all about the sacrifice, the blood sacrifice that Jesus paid, that Jesus demonstrated when he went to the cross for us. He put everything back right, the original intention of Father. And we as believers now, if we walk fully in the belief, the understanding, and grasp the fullness of the atonement, then we’re walking in God’s original intent.
We’re walking in purpose. We’re men and women on a mission. And each one of us have a mission to fulfill. Each one of us has a purpose. Nobody’s insignificant. We all have a position to operate in and through and out of, to bring forth the glory of God in the earth. Just let that sink into your spirit, into your soul. To realize that you are a somebody.
So Lord, we thank you today, that you created us in your image. We thank you for the blood sacrifice of Jesus. We thank you that we have been redeemed by his blood, and brought into right standing, back into relationship and fellowship with you, filled with your Holy Spirit and power. The opportunities are endless for those that walk uprightly before you.
Lord, I declare today that we will be a people that take hold of the purpose you created us for. And we will walk in and achieve every goal that you have marked out for us in Jesus name.
As we continue today, we bring our tithes and offerings and first fruits into the storehouse to give that portion, a tenth, the tithe, a freewill offering, and a first fruits offering, which is a portion off of that which God has so blessed us with. You can’t out-give him. Because he always returns to us good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing.
He is the God of multiplication, of supernatural multiplication. He’ll unearth treasures in a field for you. He’ll put money in a fish’s mouth. Cast your bread upon the waves and it will return to you on every wave. He’s a supernatural giver, a supernatural provider, and he always done what he says he’ll do, because he’s always faithful and true.
As we come and bring our offerings today, we come to the table of the Lord to partake of Communion.
Luke 22:14 TPT When Jesus arrived at the upper room, he took his place at the table along with all the disciples. Then he told them, I have longed with passion and desire to eat this Passover lamb with you before I endure my sufferings. I promise you that the next time we eat this, we will be together in the banquet of God’s kingdom realm.
Then he raised a cup and gave thanks to God and said to them, Take this and pass it on to one another and drink. I promise you that the next time we drink this wine, we will be together in the feast of God’s kingdom realm.
Then he lifted up a loaf, and after praying a prayer of thanksgiving to God, he gave each of his apostles a piece of bread, saying, This loaf is my body, which is now being offer to you. Always eat it to remember me.
After supper was over, he lifted the cup again and said, This cup is my blood of the new covenant I make with you, and it will be poured out soon for all of you.
Today we have the opportunity to come and partake of the Communion of the Lord Jesus, to eat of the bread which represents his body, and to drink of the cup which represents his blood. In so doing we are saying Yes to the full benefits of the new covenant.
We are receiving the fullness of his sacrifice, and in thankfulness, knowing that we have been redeemed by the blood. That means we have been brought back into right standing with Father once again. No longer are we illegitimate children, but we are King’s kids, back in the family the way he intended it. This is his house and we are his children. We celebrate today the life, the death, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, the redemption that we’ve received for his sacrifice.
So Lord, today we thank you for your body; we thank you for your blood. We thank you that we have been redeemed and we’ve been given the new covenant. And Father, we declare today that we are your children, your people, your kids, the sheep of your pasture, and we are here to worship and to honor you, and to remember the price that Jesus paid for our salvation, our deliverance, for our healing, for our provision, for all that we need in this place called earth that we live.
So Father, we give you the praise and the glory. We say, Continue to have your way in our hearts, and use us Lord, mightily, in this end-time ministry to be your light to the world, to be your hands, to be your feet, to advance your kingdom, and to release your grace, mercy, love, and joy throughout the world wherever we go, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?I love you Lord, for your mercy never fails me. All my days have been held in your hands. I will sing of the goodness of God. All my life you have faithful. All my life you have been so so good. Your goodness is running after me. With my life laid down I surrender now. I give you everything. It keeps on getting better, now that I’ve found you. Your heart won’t stop coming after me. You are so good to me.
Betty. We celebrate you Jesus. We celebrate the good of our Father. We celebrate you Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. It’s your blood. We thank you, Lord.
Anna. I sing, You are good to me.
Betty. Beau Neill has written a powerful book, Seedtime and Harvest. It’s a practical guide to farming, putting God’s principles into practice.
Kimble and I were invited to write a forward in his book so we got to read it. It was the most wonderful book that I’ve read this year. It’s a classic. I believe that. It is life-giving. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. In the midst of reading the book I thought of my earthly Dad who is now in heaven. I made a point to read the book in my prayer time with the Lord, sitting with Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit.
In that place, the presence of the Lord was with me. I really wanted to have an ear to hear what the Lord said about it. But I did not expect this. I’m reading the book and I say out loud, My Daddy would have loved this book. I’m making a statement to the Father. And I heard Father God say loudly, Your Daddy, your heavenly Father, loves this book. So the Father endorsed his book. You can’t make it up. It really happened. It will impart life to you. You will want to fulfill your birthright and destiny. It will impart a love for the land and a love for God that I don’t think you’ve had before, because it unlocked something in me. The book is alive because it’s come from the heart of the Father through the land man. So come on, land man, and bring us your word.
Beau Neill. I thank Betty for that plug. I don’t do very well selling myself. So it’s good having somebody else selling me. Marion does the packaging and I’ve got Betty to sell me, so this is going to be a done deal. I’ve really enjoyed doing what I’ve done. This book has been cooking in me for three or four years. I started about ten years ago but it got better and better. And it all came together and came alive.
I want to share a bit with you about Cuba. I went in December and everything you guys did went into Cuba as a blessing. Video of a minster being supported who works with their youth. They are so grateful. Video of an expansion for a seminary. There is so much change even now happening in Cuba. Thank you for your prayers and support.
The interesting thing about that is that they lack about $5,000 completing that project. I’ve often wondered, am I going to be willing to pull the roof off my house, extend it up and build a second floor, displace my family, displace my stuff? It’s a light thing for them. Their vision is for their town to become a tourist town, and it’s growing. They’re believing that a lot of people are going to come from within Cuba.
They see that three weeks out of the year they can use this for a seminary, and 49 weeks use it for a bed and breakfast for the tourists that come in. They feel the tourists that come in, there will be some spiritual things that will get on them when they’re in that area, in the region, in that house, and they think they will buy the houses on either side. So this will become a type of business enterprise for them.
I have a creek behind my house and I put my table scraps in the creek. After two or three weeks I noticed a big swirl out there when I would cast a biscuit or something that would float. Something would come and take it. I didn’t know what it was. I decided when my son came down we would go fishing. We’re after bass, but I wanted to see what I had been feeding.
I dropped a worm and bam!, it hit my worm. My son said, No way you knew where that fish was. I’ve been feeding that fish. We pulled him up and it’s a five or six pound catfish. He was in good shape. And that was two years ago. He’s probably gotten bigger now. He was pretty. He had good coloration. He was active, grunting to me. I put him back. I call him Catfish Joe. When we have some really good scraps, I put together a ditty. I say, Catfish Joe, he don’t know, but he’s gonna eat good tomorrow.
So I was in Cuba and I was talking to the translator. He plays guitar and I was telling him about Catfish Joe. I have a relationship with the Father and things happen to me that don’t happen to a lot of people because they don’t have that relationship. I’ve had birds come up to me and talk to me. I talk to them. I don’t think it’s strange. It just happens. So I was telling him about Catfish Joe.
I tell you, the food in Cuba is excellent and there’s plenty of it. It’s some kind of increase they have. We always know we’re going to have beans and rice, some type of pork or chicken with salads and fruits and vegetables.
I’m about to go to the next place down the road and my friend is behind me with the guitar. He’s playing and singing, My friend Beau, he don’t know, but he’s gonna eat good tomorrow. It all ended up like that!
So Joe is a friend of mine and I started feeding Joe. He brought another companion with him. I don’t know his name or her name, but I’m feeding two catfish now. You get that relationship and that happens.
We talked last night about how laughter doeth good like a medicine. Brad showed a spleen today. I don’t know anything about spleens but to me it looked like octopus. You don’t want to eat octopus in Cuba. Don’t do it. It was gummy and it was an experience.
Talking about laughter. I worked for a guy on the beach for three or four years and I told him, I’m the solution to the problem. I’m the answer to the question. I try to preempt all the solutions to the problems that are going to come up by having an answer before it comes up. I try to know the answer before it comes up.
He came in with something that was going on. He told me what it was and I laughed. This was a serious situation. When I laughed he got mad. He said, How can you laugh in this situation? I said, I always told you I was the answer to the question. That’s why you came to me with this, that I was the solution to the problem. All of a sudden, I didn’t know the answer. To me, that’s funny, because I’m supposed to know the answer.
I figured out the answer about two minutes later. But it was that laughter that sparked the depth of my brain going back in there and finding the answer. It must have released some of those endorphins or something and it began putting stuff out. Praise the Lord.
We established last night that the land was cursed, in Genesis. It’s going to produce weeds and the yield is going to be reduced.
I want to touch briefly on the theory of Pangea, that it was originally one continent. Then it separated. I want you to understand that the land that was cursed is that same land no matter where in the world it’s found today. You need to know that. In Revelation 22:3 And then she’ll be no more cursed. In the time after Noah, God gave the rainbow covenant, seedtime and harvest and said, I will never again curse the land for man’s sake. He didn’t do it at first.
What stands out from having a relationship with the Lord is that you are upright. Noah was upright in his generations. Abraham was a friend of God. Jabez—God granted what he asked. Samuel—his words never fell to the ground. So there were people God blessed because of who they were and their relationship with Him. What separates us is our relationship with Him, because we have a choice to have a relationship or not. As Anna said, it’s about being rigidly righteous and doing what is good. Doing what is good lies within you.
In July, going home on the highway, a truck-patch farmer had pulled out with a load of corn on a trailer. The ratchet strap broke and filled up one lane on Hwy 61 with 1,000-1,500 ears of corn and broken crates. I was the first one on the scene. I pulled over, put my flashers on, and started pitching corn to the side.
A lady pulled up behind me and said, Man, I’m going to help myself to some corn. I said, No ma’am, you’re not going to do that. I can’t let you. I can’t allow that. This is somebody’s property. They’re going to know they’ve lost some and they’ll be back. We’re going to pitch it over to the side of the road. You can help me or go home, but you’re not going to take it. She said, You know, you’re right. That’s the right thing to do. So she helped me.
Sure enough, the guy showed up with two Hispanics that didn’t speak any English. But, guess who spoke some Spanish? I did. So we got a crate of corn as a reward. So it’s doing what it right. God sees those things and it establishes your relationship with Him.
Restored relationships of individuals with the Lord that I described are the ones who stood out in such a way that the eyes of the Lord that are running to and fro throughout the whole earth found them.
I want to talk about land that is redeemed from the curse. The people knew the land had a curse on it because of the oral history that had been passed down. But some of the prophets began to see that the land could be freed from that curse.
Deuteronomy 8:7-9. The Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs that flow out of the valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
That is a picture of a land that is in relationship with God. I say it’s a land redeemed. The interesting thing is, about six months ago I saw a special on the History Channel about King Solomon’s mines. They thought they were looking for gold but they found out that the (enslaved) Edomites were excellent smelters of copper. You need iron ore to do the smelting for copper. Do they dug copper out of the hills with the iron ore, purified it, and made a pure copper out of it.
Deuteronomy 11:11. The land you’ve crossed over to possess is a land of hills and valleys which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares. The eyes of the Lord your God are always on it from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.
Psalms 98:7-8. Let the sea roar, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell in it; let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills be joyful together before the Lord.
Psalms 107:35-38 He turns the wilderness into pools of water, the dry ground into water springs. There he makes the hungry dwell that they may establish a city for a dwelling place, sow fields and plant vineyards that they might yield a fruitful harvest. He also blesses them and they multiply greatly. He does not let their cattle decrease.
We’re talking about a land that is redeemed from the curse, a land that is no longer under the curse. This is a picture that the people could have and see and have hope.
Isaiah 32:15-18. Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is counted as a forest. Then justice will dwell in the wilderness and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
Isaiah 35:1-2. The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and bloom as a rose. It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing.
Isaiah 35:6-7. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. The parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water; in the habitation of jackals, where each lay, there shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
They are aware that there is something that is coming.
Isaiah 55:12-13. For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
Joel 2:21-24. Fear not, O land be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done marvelous things! Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field; for the open pastures are springing up, and the tree bears its fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their strength.
Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for he has given you the former rain faithfully, and he will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.
These illustrate what the land is like when it has an established relationship between you and God, and God and you and the land. It’s between you and the land. These things are possible or they wouldn’t be in there.
Increase. I found these keys throughout the Bible that I began to put together. I never saw it in a concordance or anybody’s book. This is all original work. I haven’t found anybody else that has put this together. When I would read and find a scripture that applied to farming, I put farming out beside it, just a notation of mine. Then I started putting these things together. So I made myself a section of notes on farming.
I found six or seven scriptures that talk about bringing increase. Remember, the ground is cursed and it will not yield its strength or its increase. I want to share six of these scriptures to show there is a possibility of doing it. These are cause and effects verses. You can do this.
Leviticus 26:3-4. If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
The Lord is saying it’s not going to be an average crop. It’s going to be an abundant crop.
Psalms 67:5-6. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you. Then the earth shall yield her increase; God, our own God, shall bless us.
Psalms 85:10-12. Mercy and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed. Truth shall spring up out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yes, the Lord will give what is good; and our land will yield its increase.
Isaiah 30:23. Then he will give rain for your seed with which you sow the ground, and bread of the increase of the earth; it will be fat and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed in large pastures.
Ezekiel 34:27. Then the trees of the fields shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase.
Zechariah 8:12. For the seed shall be prosperous. The vine shall yield its fruit. The ground shall give her increase. And the heavens shall give their dew.
It’s interesting that we have six passages from give different books and about six different authors that get on this concept of increase, saying this is possible. These were Old Testament guys, so their relationship with the Spirit was that, the Spirit would come and rest on them and they would prophesy, and speak and do miraculous things. And then the Spirit would leave.
We have a different relationship with the Spirit now because Jesus will come and abide with you always. We have six different authors saying we can reverse the curse. We can have the earth yield its strength.
These are cause and effects scriptures. If you will do this, I will do that. The passages from Leviticus and Isaiah pertain to obedience. If you will do this, I will do that. Blessings will happen.
Psalms 67 is a song of praise. So if you give praise to the Lord, you can come up with this increase.
I hosted Billy Joe Young. He has ridden and farmed with me for ten years. He stayed with us when James Nesbitt came with Round Sound Fire Down the Mississippi. He gave me a compliment, which is unusual for Billy Joe. He talked about how I’m always happy. How I always have a hum or song, etc. I took it as a compliment from him. I’m just happified all the time. It’s a way of life. I seldom get into the doldrums.
Kimble was talking about starting the week off, starting the day off. In the workforce, your first day is Monday. In my part of the world they talk about Blue Monday, hate to see Monday come. Well, I approach it in a different way. I know that Monday is going to present some obstacles I can overcome.
I look forward to Monday coming because I’ve got to load out 40,000 bushels of corn, an auger to fix, etc., and I’m excited I get to go do that. You walk with that into your workforce and that’s infectious. They want to be able to be there with you when you overcome, because they want to get the victory. They want to be a part of that victory that’s going to happen.
It can change the environment in which you live and work. You can be an impacter or be impacted. If you’re being impacted now, strive to come from being an impactee to an impacter so you can make a difference everywhere you go. My wife makes a difference everywhere she goes because she is just effervescent.
One time we were on the coast at an International House of Pancakes. I’m usually cold and I knew I was in trouble when we drove up because the windows were sweating. It was cold in there. You turn the syrup bottle up and it wouldn’t come out. It was stuck in there. It was cold. I ask the waitress to warm it up so some could come out. I made it 45 minutes to an hour, going outside to warm up, until we were finally going to leave. The others weren’t cold but I was freezing.
Marion has this t-shirt on that says, Prays Well With Others. We go to cash out and the cashier is leaning over past me reading Marion’s t-shirt. I asked her what she was looking at, and she said she wanted to see what the t-shirt said. I told her, it says Prays Well With Others. Do you need prayer? And she started crying. I’m trying to pay a bill and get out of there so I can go get warm, this woman started crying, and Marion is going to minister to her and probably needs me to lay hands on her or do something like that. I can’t even feel my hands. How am I going to do that? You’ve just got to learn when you can impact people.
The Lord requires of you some things if you want to get into this relationship with Him and a relationship with the land. You want to be in a right relationship with God so thereby, you can use the authority of God to be in a right relationship with the land.
I opened this chapter with Hosea 6:6. For I desire mercy and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
That means if you go to church on Sunday, that’s for you. You’re not doing it for God. You read your Bible on a regular basis, you’re doing that for you, not for God. In all your thinking and doing, are you doing it from the attitude that I need to do this to be right with God? If you’re doing it for that, you’re out of order. It says right there, I desire mercy and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. You have to know what you’re about.
Micah 6:8. He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
That is actually a paraphrase of five or six other scriptures that I found. What does the Lord require of you? To do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Is that possible? Yes, it is. There are scriptures in there that talk about what it takes to do justly.
Justly comes from a Hebrew word that means a verdict. Zephaniah 3:5. The Lord is righteous in her midst. He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning he brings his justice to light. He never fails. So the justice is there every morning.
Betty is doing out of the Womb of the Dawn (morning). Anna is doing Womb of the Dawn. Kimble is doing Womb of the Dawn every morning. When you see that lightning bolt come across there that’s the first ray of sunlight, The justice of God is available for you that morning. You can do justly that day because it says right there in Zephaniah you can.
Mercy comes from a Hebrew word that means ‘good deedliness.’ That’s found in Lamentations 3:22-23. The Lord’s mercies are new every morning. That benevolence is new every morning. When that ray of sunshine pipes through, God’s mercies are available for you to take those mercies and apply it to somebody else. How do you do that?
I had a business meeting in a restaurant one time. There were a half dozen of us in there. I had another place to be a short time later, so I went to the cashier to pay out and she said it had been taken care of. I looked and there was nobody in that restaurant that I knew. So it’s one of those things where you pay it forward. I walked out praising the Lord that somebody would do that for me.
I remember on the mission field something that just blew me away. Our field captain bought this homeless guy a plate and it was served on banana leaves. The guy wanted money, said he was hungry. So he bought him a banana leaf full of food. Just something little like that. You never know what’s going to happen when you touch somebody’s heart like that.
Walking humbly. I will send a Comforter and he will abide with you always. That’s the Holy Spirit. So you’ve got the three prime things right there to put you in a right relationship with what God requires, that you might be in right relationship with everybody else through all of creation, with the land. So you want to have that relationship.
We came January 5 to Miracle City and my word for the year is scarcely. I interpreted that as being, I have scarcely seen what God will show me today. I have scarcely seen. I put in the book: Walking humbly with the Lord is amazing. In my routine when I don’t get caught up in being busy is to ask the Lord to show me something significant this day.
Sometimes it’s a cloud formation. Sometimes it’s a tree. Sometimes it’s the singing of a bird. Sometimes it’s the path of a falling leaf. But it is always something I’ve never noticed before. This is what it does. It makes me open my senses. It heightens my anticipation. And it broadens my situational awareness. Try it sometimes. You’ll be amazed.
There is a cypress three in the swamp with a path leading to it. You can drive by and you won’t see it from the road except if you’ve got some type of situational awareness. You’ll see a tree that is taller than the others, and you’ll see it from a half to three-quarters of a mile away. And something says, This is something significant. I need to go see it. So you walk back to it. You don’t get the concept of how enormous that tree is unless you stand somebody in the split of it. I found several of those out there.
God made my neck on a swivel. When I’m driving I hardly ever look out front. I notice a lot of things people don’t notice because I was a distracted driver even before cell phones! I have found arrowheads on a farm driving 20 mph down a road because I’m looking out across there and I see a rock where there’s never been a rock before. I slam on brakes, find him and walk out there, and it will be an arrowhead. We get so caught up in being busy in our busyness and we miss things that God wants us to see.
The key to the treasure is John 10:10. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Abundantly is not a big bank account. It’s not a Mercedes-Benz. It’s not any of those sorts of things. It’s the life that I have. I have a great wife and I have a great life. I don’t let a day go by that I don’t see something that’s unusual.
You can do a great study in the fall when trees start dropping their leaves, if you want to see what flight looks like. You watch that leaf trying to overcome gravity. It’s a struggle. Most people just see the leaf fall, but that leaf is trying not to fall to the ground because it’s going to decay. That’s its right of passage. That’s what it’s got to do. Watch one fall one day. It’s putting moves on gravity that you’ve got to appreciate.
There’s nothing more beautiful that watching ducks come in. It’s the way they cup their wings and drop their tails down and flare and light. There’s something beautiful about it. I thought that was probably the most beautiful thing I had ever seen until I watched a flock of whooping cranes come in to roost. Those birds flip over on their backside, get up on their side, stand on their nose, do all kinds of things, and grunt at the same time. Great effort, and it’s beautiful. How do they do that?
I watched a pelican go after a fish. He just folds everything up and drops like a rock. Driving down here yesterday I noticed something flash across the car. It was a red-tailed hawk. He saw a rat in the ditch and he zipped across. He wasn’t bothered by my car two inches from him. His focus was on that rat and he got him. It was something I had not seen before. You just have to stop and appreciate those things.
The key is Jesus. It’s your choice to accept him and invite him and have a relationship with Him. If you don’t have that relationship, I’m just talking to you for nothing. The reason for your existence is to have a relationship with Jesus. Then all this will open up to you.
The practical guide is our farm. These concepts are not limited to farming. It doesn’t make any difference what your vocation is, because you can break it up as farming. When I was on the beach we had clients, and those were my fields. I put managers out on the beach and those were places that I said, Guys, you’ve got to make a lot of money. I spoke to those things.
You can do it in real estate. You can do it selling houses. These houses would be your fields. You speak to them and they will increase. That’s what you’re looking for. You’re looking for increase to get as much as you can.
If you’re a dentist, you’ve got plenty of fields in here you can work on. You’ve got clients, you’ve got fields. It’s a broad stroke application.
As a manager, when you go back to a farm, you’re going to walk the ground. God told Abraham to walk the length and breadth of it, that it would see him as a friend of God and would respond with increase.
So I walked around it because you want to look at the drainage, the soil type, the weed pressure, the yield, and historical significance. All these events would take place. There would be fields and they would be named. We named all our fields. I’ve got Crazy Woman, Fish Ponds.
Crazy Woman was a lady that would come out to her mailbox and walk around it three times and then look in it. Why didn’t she do that the first time? I don’t know. Then you’ve got Fish Ponds. They are fields that used to be in catfish ponds and are no more so you know what to expect out of them. They usually have a little more fertility in them. Peach Tree. We had some next to an airport we called Runway. You know what to expect there. If it’s a person’s name, there was probably a house site there.
I’m an artifact guy. I like marbles, tools, things such as that. You can find that kind of stuff when you walk around looking at the land. I love arrowheads, but marbles! We used to shoot marbles all the time. It was kind of like gambling. You shoot somebody’s marble and knocked it out of the ring, you got their marble.
Marbles mean something because when I was a kid we had a number of families that lived on the farm, field hands. And every year my father would give a bag of marbles to all the kids. Nobody had much when I was growing up, but we didn’t know we didn’t have much. We didn’t know the difference. Nobody told us we were poor. We thought we were rich. I had a yard to play in. All the kids got together and played hide-and-seek and had baseball games, and stuff like that.
So he gave marbles, and now when I walk a house site and find a marble, I just think, This marble probably brought so much joy to those kids that day, when they opened up that bag. There was something about that. I find locks, working locks. I find buttons. So you’re touching back to something that was there. Somebody lived there that impacted that land, and you’re coming along and reaping the benefits of it. You just need to go with me sometime.
I talk in the book about talking to the fields. I talk to my fields. I talk to the crops. I tell the corn, Hey, corn, I’m going to give you fertilizer. I’m going to plant you at the right depth, at the right seed rate, and you’re going to enjoy it. You’re going to grow up and you’re not going to be limited in yield. So I’m looking for the best yield we’ve ever had. I don’t want to have an average yield. I want to have an abundant yield. I think God has given me an answer on how to handle this.
I want to share with you the Core. The core is who you work with and you need to know who you work with. The core and I pray and bless the land each year. As the year progresses, they think I’m the nut out there because I’m telling them what we’re going to do and I’m telling them what part they’re going to be of it. I tell them how much they’re going to contribute into the system, because they’re going to see it face to face. I’m going to be managing, but they’re going to be in the field. So I need to have feedback from them. I need to know if I’ve got a planter row that’s not planted. I need to know if I have a water nozzle stopped up. I need to know if the weeds have escaped down in that field. So it gives them a part of being there and interacting with it.
We bless the seed to be full of vigor. Vigor is inward strength. You want that seed to come up and be all it can be. We always ask for weather protection from hail, microbursts, etc. I always ask for rain on every Thursday afternoon because I like three-day weekends. I like to go fishing.
One year we had done that and it rained every Thursday. I had the (auditor) come down one time and he asked one of the field hands, What do you think about this Thursday rain? Every Thursday it rains. The field hand looked at him and said, That’s what we prayed for! Don’t come down here and break it up. It’s what we prayed for. It came to pass.
Any of you remember Tropical Storm Barry last August? Prior to that we had a very serious flood situation in the Mississippi Delta and Mississippi River. The Corps of Engineers was dumping water into Lake Pontchartrain and from there it would go into the Gulf. The beaches were becoming toxic and people couldn’t go onto them. Day by day, week by week, the bulletins would come out and say, Biloxi, Harbor Point to this and this was closed due to toxic condition. It was creeping on to the east.
I had worked in lower Alabama on the beach down there for three years and remained good friends with the guy who had the beach service down there. I called Ted up one day and said, They’re closed all the way to Pensacola. That’s a hop, skip, and jump from Gulf Shores area. What would it take to break this up?
He said, Beau, what we need is a tropical depression to form off the coast of Alabama, close to the coast, and move west. I said, Well, Ted, I can agree with you for that. It would keep the beaches pristine. Two days later Tropical Storm Barry forms off the coast of Alabama and moves west. In that interaction, it cleaned all those beaches and moved all that stuff out.
You might say that’s coincidence. It could be. But I know he and I agreed before the Lord that that would happen and it came to pass. Those things build your faith. So you can do things. I want you to understand. I’m not trying to sell this book to make money. I wrote this book because I had an unction and it was just something I needed to get out of my blood. I believe there’s stuff in this book you can take and apply to your life, and you’ll see things happen in your life. I think you will see it make a difference in your life.
I shared last night that the price of the book came from a meeting I had for 15-20 minutes. I took my mic off and laid it down and a lady put a $20 bill in front of it and said, I want the first copy. So that’s the price. It’s in production. I think I’ll have it here in April. It will be a quick read and I encourage you to read it. Eighteen months ago, when I was here on 11/11, that’s where the book came from.
In closing, I come from a family of four siblings. My mother and father hardly ever left the Mississippi Delta. Except for going deep-sea fishing once a year, they never went anywhere. I’ve got two sisters that probably have never left the state of Mississippi. I’ve got a brother that wrote some books and he traveled the southeast part of Mississippi.
But Beau, this guy has been to almost every state in the nation. He’s been in 29 foreign countries. He’s walked roads kind of like the Enterprise on Star Trek. He’s gone boldly where no one has gone before. Why has that happened? It’s because my relationship with the Lord loosed me from that bondage of being just from the Mississippi Delta. It gave me an interest in what was out there that I had never seen before. There are things out there that you need to go and see.
It may cost a little bit of money, but go and see it anyway. I’m not talking about Disney World. I’m talking about national parks and things like that. Go sit up there and hear the mountains clap their hands and sing to you. I’ve been there. It will just knock you out. You’ll wonder why in the world you didn’t do this before. Be blessed today and have a great day. I love you. Thank you for having me.
Kimble. Thank you, Beau. I encourage you to sign up for his book. I’ve read it and it will definitely give you some tools to walk in dominion and see things change. Father, we thank you for this day and what you’ve done in this house. We thank you for the word Beau has brought us. I thank you that it has impacted us and we will see great results from this word. We take hold of it. We believe it and we receive it. May your blessings be upon Beau and Marion as they continue to go forth and minister your truth.
Father, bless our time of fellowship today. Bless our food that’s been prepared for the nourishment of our bodies and use it to the strengthening, for the endurance, and the fulfilling of our purpose as we go forth to advance your kingdom. We give you praise and thanksgiving in Jesus name. Amen.
