Judah Goes First
Anna Love. For the past month I’ve been stirred even more so than normal by the presence of the Lord. I began hearing Holy Spirit say Saturday morning especially, Today is the day for deliverance. What spurred that on is that we’re in the filmstrip month and I was looking at myself. We need to start with ourselves. I was looking at situations and how I had responded in to them in the past, or maybe thoughts that I’d had, inward rather than outward responses. We can respond to things inwardly and not say it out. But how we deal with stuff inwardly is so important. You can say all the right things outwardly and look perfect, but on the inside you’re a terrible mess, or you’re really ugly.
I was looking at these things, and I was seeing places where I had been victorious, and places where I had messed up terribly. As I was looking at it, my cry was, Lord how do we stop these cycles? We all have cycles in our lives. It’s part of our personality. It’s how we’re wired to respond to things, but we don’t have to respond unrighteously. We can let the Lord take hold of our reins and turn any unrighteous responses into righteous responses.
I was looking at things and crying out to the Lord, How do I change? How do I change these responses? How do I change these thoughts? How do I change these actions? How do I change these attitudes? And then I began to cry out from my spirit because, I don’t care who you are, we all need deliverance. Because as we go through life things get on us, things come in, walls get weak. We have to keep building ourselves up in our most holy faith.
So if you think you don’t need deliverance, and you think you are above, then I’ve got news for you today, you need some deliverance, because there is one of your main issues.
I began crying out to the Lord from deep within my spirit for deliverance. And I wasn’t thinking about the Body. I said, Lord just deliver me. I see things in my own life that are ugly. I see these things in my own life and I don’t want this. It was intercession rising up within me, and I started praying it for the Body as a whole, because the Church needs to be delivered. On one hand she’s fallen into all of this greasy grace stuff, but then on the other hand, she’s fallen into pride because she thinks that she’s so much better than the world. It’s one end of the spectrum to the other. And I don’t want to be on either end. I just want to be plumbed in the Lord. I just want to be standing in the righteousness of God which is in Christ Jesus, which is within us, and it’s everything that’s available to us.
Psalm 68 BSB. God arises. His enemies are scattered, and those who hate him flee his presence. As smoke is blown away, You will drive them out; as wax melts before the fire, the wicked will perish in the presence of God. But the righteous will be glad and rejoice before God. They will celebrate with joy.
Sing to God. Sing praises to his name. Exalt Him who rides on the clouds—His name is the Lord—and rejoice before Him. A father of the fatherless, and a defender of the widows, is God in His holy habitation.
God settles the lonely in families; He leads the prisoners out to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a sun-scorched land. O God, when You went out before Your people, when You marched through wastelands, Selah
The earth shook and the heavens poured down rain before God, the One on Sinai, before God, the God of Israel. You sent abundant rain, O God; You refreshed Your weary inheritance. Your flock settled therein; O God, from Your bounty You provided for the poor.
The Lord gives the command; a great company of women proclaim it: “Kings and their armies flee in haste; she who waits at home will divide the plunder. Though you lie down among the sheepfolds, the winds of the dove are covered with silver, and her feathers will shimmering gold.”
When the Almighty scattered the kings in the land it was like the snow falling on Zalmon. A mountain of God is the hill of Bashan; a mount of many peaks is Mount Bashan. Why do you gaze in envy, O mountains of many peaks? This is the mountain God chose for His dwelling, where the Lord will surely dwell forever.
The chariots of God are tens of thousands—thousands of thousands are they; the Lord is in His sanctuary as He was at Sinai. You have ascended on high. You have led captives away. You have received gifts from men, even from the rebellious, that the Lord God may dwell there. Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God of our salvation. Selah
Our God is a God of deliverance; the Lord God is our rescuer from death. Surely God will crush the heads of His enemies, the hairy crowns of those who persist in guilty ways. The Lord said, “I will retrieve them from Bashan, I will bring them up from the depths of the sea, that your foot may be dipped in the blood of your foes, the tongues of your dogs in the same.”
They have seen Your procession, O God—the march of my God and King into the sanctuary. The singers lead the way, the musicians follow after, among the maidens playing tambourines. Bless God in the great congregation, bless the Lord from the fountain of Israel.
There is Benjamin, the youngest, ruling them, the princes of Judah in their company, the princes of Zebulun and of Naphtali. Summon Your power, O God; show Your strength, O God, which You have exerted on our behalf. Because of Your temple at Jerusalem kings will bear you gifts.
Rebuke the beast in the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations, until it submits, bringing bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war. Envoys will arrive from Egypt; Cush will stretch out her hands to God. Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth; sing praises to the Lord, Selah
To Him who rides upon the highest heavens of old; behold, His mighty voice resounds. Ascribe the power to God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose strength is in the skies. O God, You are awesome in Your sanctuary; the God is Israel Himself gives strength and power to His people. Blessed be God!
II Corinthians 6:1-2 NLT. As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.
Father, we thank you that today is the day of our deliverance. Lord, we thank you that today is the day that we deal with our stuff, that we deal with our baggage. Lord, I thank you that you are coming and you are claiming what is yours this morning. And everything else is falling away. Let our eyes be open. Let our hearts be open. Lord I thank you for a willing spirit, of every person that comes into this house, of every person that’s watching. Lord I thank you that you are going down deep, that you are going to the very core of our being and you are uprooting those things that are not of you.
Father, let us see ourselves. Let us see what needs to change. Lord, I thank you that this is the day of deliverance. Father, I thank you that you’ve come in and it is in one fell swoop. I thank you that things, strongholds, years of things, years of stuff, years of junk, are being lifted this morning. I thank you that you are lifting burdens; you are lifting the heavy loads.
Father, I thank you for your miracle-working power, your signs and wonders. I thank you that we’re in a time and a season where your power is moving once again in your Church. Father, I thank you that you are coming in once again and you are rescuing your sons and daughters, not just the lost but the ones who are lost inside the church.
Father, open our eyes to see. Open our ears to hear. I thank you that you lead us on your paths of righteousness. I thank you that you are going and you are getting us this morning. Lord, we submit to you. We honor you in this place.
As we step into worship this morning, we are engaging heaven. I’m not sure if we go up or it comes down, but I know for sure that we meet. And as we’re in this place this morning in worship and as we’re honoring the Lord, I want you to begin to let the Father, the Deliverer, our King, begin to work on you, any place, as we join in with the song of heaven this morning.
Have your way Lord. We submit to you and we commit ourselves unto you in Jesus name. Amen.
?I see the Lord and his train fills the temple. I see the Lord and he is high and lifted up. And angels cry Holy Holy is the Lord.
I see the Lord and his eyes are flaming like fire. I see the Lord and his hair is white as snow. And angels cry Holy Holy is the Lord.
The angel came and touched the coal to my lips. My guilt is gone. My sin has been forgiven. I cry Holy Holy is the Lord. And the temple is filled with the glory of God.
He calls to me, Whom shall I send? I answer him, I will go for you.
Come and fill us up with the glory of God. Come and fill us up God, with all you are.
Betty. Come fill your Body, your Bride, your sons of God, your temple. Fill the place, this city, this state, this nation. Have your way.
Heaven, let your light shine down. Come and let it shine. Come on in and shine in us. The light of the Lord is rising and it cannot be stopped. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Open our eyes. Open our ears so we can see and hear you, to see the light, to come out of the darkness. Awaken and arise.
Wake up child, it’s your time to shine. Come on and rise up.
Betty?I have a destiny.
We’re walking in it now ? And I am royalty. And I have a destiny. I have been set free and I’m gonna shape history. I’m gonna change the world.
Betty. I want to acknowledge the Lion of the tribe of Judah. We welcome the roar of the Lion of the tribe of Judah in our midst. Father I thank you that every time I look, I see eyes. I see the Lion. I see the power of the Lord coming to rest in this place. Coming to work in this place. We welcome your roars oh God. We welcome the Lion of the tribe of Judah. We welcome the roar.
?We welcome the roar of the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
Betty. Over this nation. Chosen generation. Royal priesthood. A holy nation. People belonging to the Lord.
Can you hear the sound of the roaring lion in the distance? “As the Lion King is released in this nation, I’m going to roar over America. The Reset has begun.” The word of the Lord came to me on July 12 and I posted it on facebook. I’ve got good news for you. On Friday evening at sundown, we entered into the 17th of Tammuz, which was the beginning of the 21 Days of Straits.
For Israel, it was in this three week period that they gave up their birthright and they gave up their destiny. And rather than entering into the promises of God, and entering into the promised land, they believed the lie of the enemy, and believed the lies of the naysayers, and they forfeited the grace of God, the power of God, and the destiny. It costed them an entire generation to lose their inheritance. Because ten said No and two said Go.
But I’m here to tell you today, standing in this place, releasing for Miracle City, the city of our Father, across the nation, around the world, whoever happens to be viewing today or seeing today, I’ve got good news for you. Your Father has come again. He has brought you full circle, and you are standing at the place to enter in to go straight into your promises.
So I see a vision. It’s not because I saw a movie. it’s because I’ve seen the Lion, and he’s roaring. He’s roaring. He’s releasing the roar. The Word of God says the Lion will roar and his children will come trembling from the west.
They shall walk after the Lord. He shall roar like a lion. And when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.
I want to acknowledge we’re a nation from the west. And I decree and declare over the nation of America that the children of God will begin to tremble at the sound of the roaring of the Lion. We’re coming home into our true identity. Awaken. Awaken. Oh sons of God. In your birthright and your destiny. No more destiny thieves. No more destiny devourers. We’re entering in. We’re entering in.
I see your eyes Lord. I see the eyes of the Lord. I just want to acknowledge the eyes of the Lord are upon us. They move to and fro throughout the earth seeking the hearts that are fully committed unto him, that they may strengthen. I want you to know right now, you could not be standing in this house this morning, watching, or view at a later time, if God had not ordained for you to hear it.
So I decree and declare that you will hear the voice of the Lord, you will hear the roar of the Lion, and what is stored in you for such a time as this will awaken. And I believe the word of the Lord.
As I was coming in this morning I saw Blue Angels that were coming with me. You see things in the natural and you reckon things in the spirit, and I promise, God as my witness, I could see those Blue Angel airplanes and they were level on the sides of my car and we were just coming in, now.
The Lord said, Did I not tell you a few days ago that I’ve upped the security? The angelic beings that I’ve assigned to you and that I’ve assigned to my sons in this hour? As I saw those Blue Angels, the Lord said, Time’s up for the enemy. Time’s up for the enemy. He has taken his best shot. And done his best to deter my children from their birthright and destiny, from entering into the inheritance that is theirs in this season. And I’m saying to the enemy, Time’s up. You’ve had your time. Now I’ll have My time. HEI…
We acknowledge your power. We acknowledge your power in here, Lord today, in us. Now unto him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask for, hope, or imagine, by his power that is at work within us. I want to acknowledge the power of God. I want to acknowledge Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit—Adonai Elohim—God in His Fullness in this place.
I want to acknowledge the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I want to acknowledge the Lion of the tribe of Judah. I want to acknowledge his roar, his sound, the voice of the Lord. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord that has come to rest upon us and work with us today.
So Father, we consecrate and commit this time to your hands, and Lord I thank you that every person within the hearing of my voice has an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to the church. More than that, I thank you for fruit and fruit that will stand. I thank you Lord that we did not choose you, but you have chosen us.
And you have appointed us to go forth and bear fruit for the Father’s glory, and fruit that stands.
And not only that Lord, I decree and declare that we acknowledge the voices that are coming out of the heavenly realm. We acknowledge Zion, Lord that we have come to your holy mountain, that we have citizenship in heaven, that we are seated at your right hand even now. Lord we thank you that you have pitched a tent over us, and Lord God we thank you that you have put your name within us, and that your name comes alive.
And Lord we acknowledge that salvation comes with no other name than the Lord Jesus Christ. And Lord we confess your name. We receive the power and authority of your name. We receive the full benefits of the New Covenant in your blood. We receive and acknowledge the voice of the blood of Jesus Christ that is speaking a better word over us today and every day of our lives because we are not our own.
We’ve been bought with the precious blood of Jesus. We’ve come off the slave market of sin. We have come out of the throes of death. We have come out of infirmity. We have come out of poverty. We have come out of the things of the world. And we say, Lord, Come and receive your reward. Separate a people to the work of the ministry. Separate a nation unto the work to which you’ve called us. Bring us back into your original intent. Set us at one with you, spirit, soul, body.
Lord I pray for those that are in alignment with us, even throughout this nation, Father, I pray for complete deliverance in our spirit, soul, and body. I am praying that the scales will be removed from our eyes, and the hardhearted places, and shells of protection, layers of stuff that have wanted to attached itself or been attached to us for years and years and years—wrong thinking, wrong mindsets—let it be uprooted, torn down, destroyed, and overthrown.
Ungodly beliefs, ungodly soul ties to people, places, and things. Enough. Broken. In the name of Jesus. Fear broken in the name of Jesus. ?‘Cause He’s Fail-Proof. I said He’s Fail-Proof. I said He’s Fail-Proof. He’s Fail-Proof. Can’t nobody do me like Jesus. Can’t nobody do me like the Lord. Can’t nobody do me, do me like the Lord. Cause he’s my friend. Oh he’s not longer calling us servants. He’s calling us friends.
Betty/Worship Team?Can’t nobody do me like Jesus, like the Lord. He told me to run on, to run the race He’s marked out for us. Run Run Run. We’re not running away from the enemy. We’re not running away from our birthright or our destiny. We gonna run to the Father, to the Son, by the power of the Holy Ghost. It’s an inside job. You must have somebody on the inside doing the work, releasing the power, releasing the presence and the glory. Praise God.
Father, I thank you that sirens are going off in the spirit realm right now. Lord God, I thank you that the trumpets are blowing in the spirit realm right now, and Lord they are routing the enemy. Lord I thank you that our 911 call is upon us now. I decree and declare that Amos 9:11 is upon us now. Our 911, when the plowman overtakes the reaper. Our 911 is upon us. And it’s a 911, hahaha, for the enemy. You can’t do anything about it.
Do you believe God’s willingness to help you? Do you believe God is for you and not against you? I put this teaching with a powerpoint together about a week ago. We have come to Mount Zion. We have come to the city of the living God, the New Jerusalem. We come to the Church of the Firstborn. And I want to decree and declare over you that you are a part of the Church of the Firstborn.
I’m going to ask everyone to be present this morning, not engaged in conversation. This is one of the most important messages that you’re going to hear. And I don’t want you to be distracted. I gathered things to bring this morning, and it’s such a blessing because when I pull up people immediately start helping me bring them in. But this morning he said, No. Donna Bass came to the car to help. She has such a heart of a helper, the heart of the Father, to me, to this house. She comes out and I’m like, No. I appreciate Brooklyn, but No. Be the doorkeeper. Kimble sees me lug this big picture in. What can I help you with? No. Because the Lord said, You have to do this, Betty.
I’m saying to you today, never miss the speaker in this house. Whoever is bringing the word of God, whoever is releasing the word of the Lord, understand this. Apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, you can do nothing. So anytime you hear, Well we need to do so and so, or You need to do so and so, don’t you ever think that they mean, You need to do it. It is always a we-some. It is always God on the inside enabling and empowering you to do.
Paul said, It’s not me doing the work. It is the Spirit of Christ working in me. I’m here to tell you, Get ready for a Holy Ghost eruption on the inside of your life. What has sought to corrupt your birthright and your destiny, where the enemy has violated your covenant rights, the Lord is coming to us in this hour and he is saying, No More. Time is up for the enemy.
He is going to cause you and me to see ourselves the way we really are. And then he’s going to have you look and look again. And he’s going to show you who you really are, those facades, and that stuff that only you and he know about, or stuff where we have been self-deceived, If you think for a minute I’m addressing this to you and not addressing it to me, then we are all undone.
I’m here to tell you, It is your finest hour. The first words of the Lord today, “Betty, you will lead my people into their inheritance.” You know how he does me in the night, in those moments. I don’t know when they’re coming. But his word comes to me, and I am confident that my destiny and my birthright, that I am a Joshua. I have been defined and my identity has been refined and is being refined again.
It’s because I’m a tent-dweller. You want to be a leader? You want to possess your destiny and your inheritance? You’re going to have to stay in the Tent of Meeting. You’re going to have to allow him to position you in the tent and you’re going to need to keep your appointment there. Because in his presence is Fullness. And in his presence is transformation. And in his presence is glorious change.
I see the eagle and his wings are spread out. He is coming for you today. He is come to work in us, to will and act for his good pleasure.
The Lord had me bring (all these things). I’m actually bringing you my wall, as I sit in my great room with the Lord. Anna gave me this one Christmas 2017. The Lord is my Shepherd for Mother’s Day. So the Lord is preparing me for what the enemy thought would destroy me. Hahaha. So for the week before Kimble III passed, I’m looking at, Be Strong in the Lord and the Power of His Might.
This picture was actually purchased for the home that we built in West Point, for the landing going up to Anna’s room. If you looked at this picture, the little girl and boy could pass for my parents. Their focus is on the broken pot. They have obviously messed up. The little girl is like, Oh God, remorseful. She’s taken hold of the corner of the wall. She’s got her foot turned just a little bit. The little boy, even though he’s looking, he doesn’t want to face it head on. He’s like, Let me absorb myself into this wall.
But before the calamity ever came, what I noticed about this picture, and my Father in heaven caused me to really see, there is a stairway going up and on that first step is a blood (red) strip. So before the accident, before the sin, before the mishap ever happened, before they missed the mark. I know how it goes; so do you. How many of you have had your parents tell you, Don’t throw the ball inside? Stop running inside? And then we ignore that as a child and end up breaking something because we didn’t obey. I’m sure that’s what happened. I’m going to read that in.
Regardless, there’s a broken pot, and you cannot put that back together and clean up that dirt before somebody knows about it. But the blood speaks. And the blood speaks a better word. It doesn’t matter where you are today—and we’re talking about today—because I am speaking to everyone in this house—we are going to be and do and are who God says we are.
Our inheritance is kept in heaven for us. It will not fade, it will not spoil. It will not come to an end. It will always be there. The gifts and callings of God are without repentance. You won’t change his mind about the call upon you life, but whether you possess your birthright and your call this side of heaven is going to be based on your behavior belief system. Belief determines behavior.
If you really believe that Jesus Christ is who he says he is. If you really believe God, and especially in an apostolic spirit-filled house who embraces the entirety of the Word of God. If you really believe that, you’ll no longer be able to operate in the old wineskin or the old mindset or the old sin structures that have been in your life. And don’t you dare tell me, me first, Well that’s just the way I am. Because if that’s just the way you are, and you’re going to hold onto it, I AM is not going to be able to bring you into what he wants to bring you into.
It has not been an easy season for many. And I can guarantee you, you have had your moments over the years where you have said, Lord I would just rather come home. I’ve had enough. Has anybody in here said that? I’ll say, Me first, in different seasons. I’m just done here. But I came to the kingdom reality of, I’m not done here.
There is no way that I want to stand before the Father or look Jesus Christ in the eye and know that I didn’t allow him to do the work in my life, and bring me into the promises that he paid for. Because he deserves more than that. It’s easy to go home. It’s another thing to be his ambassador in the earth. And let him bring glory to the power of his name.
You need to quit blaming everyone else for your sin issues. You need to quit blaming people for their sin issues blowing back over you, that you can’t do what God has called you to do, because there’s this and this and this. Or you will sit paralyzed. Me first. Done that.
That doesn’t mean you don’t honor authority, or you don’t honor people. But your call is to Him first. And then you have a call and responsibility to your family. Me first. Everyone in this room. Because I can tell you the truth. The place you neglect is the place the enemy is coming in. The place you ignore when God tells you to deal with it is the place where he has come in again and again and again.
So today, we acknowledge that Friday evening, on July 19, through Av 9, we have entered into 21 Days. But I want you to know it’s 21 Days of preparing you to enter into your birthright and your destiny. You’re going to have opportunity to repent first to God and you’re going to have to repent to some people in your life because you’ve been rotten. Now if that doesn’t apply to you, yay God.
But what you have done in the past is defense mechanisms,. He is going to strip down our walls so you can’t act that way. When I was a little girl, I would never have pitched a fit in public, because I was too taught, okay? But if you don’t think I could pitch a fit. And if you don’t think I could pitch a fit with Kimble Love. Oh Lord! You want to say Jezebel? Don’t say Jezebel now!
But then I could tell you, if it wasn’t a demon, I didn’t have it. I did. All kinds of stuff. But I remember when the Lord delivered me. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been abused. It doesn’t matter whether it’s ‘Me Too’ or not. There comes a place where ‘Me Too’ is going to deal with the situation through the heart of the Father, and the eyes of Jesus Christ, and then change.
You can either be defined by what has happened in your life or what is going on, or you can be defined by Him. Because it’s really not about them, if you’ll let Him. It doesn’t matter whether this changes. What will happen is, you’ll change. You’ll be transformed. I said, Where are we? He said, We’re in the glory. 21 Days in the glory and be transformed. 21 Days, get out of your phone. 21 Days, whatever you need to shut off and shut down, shut it down.
If I honestly am speaking the truth of the Word of God to you, and it is in 21 Days that we see manifestation and change, and you enter into your birthright and your destiny, and you’re not waiting until the end, He’s bringing you in now. Do you want it? Yes! David said, I will not sacrifice offerings that cost me nothing. A ram is caught in the thicket for you, Betty. Driscoll. How many remember that story? I hope you do.
After that we were in the Columbus Glory Portal, and Angela and Gerald Vernon who graciously opened their home for Columbus meetings, Angela said, Betty I have something down in the shop I’m supposed to give you when you shared that message. It’s a double ram (handled silver flower vase). Today is the first day I’ve brought it. I’ve had it at my house since June.
What you’re seeing is first fruits. These are ginger lilies that came out of my parents’ yard. I know it’s from my mother, but I believe she got a cutting from my aunt and my grandmother. So these are generational lilies. And you’re seeing the first fruit this morning of the blossom. When I went out, it’s the first fruit. So I’m bringing the first fruits of the lily into the house.
And if you understand about the lily, any form of lily goes to three places: it goes to a funeral, to a wedding, and to a resurrection. And I would say unto you that you have stepped into a place where God is going to work with you for the next 21 Days, and it’s going to be a funeral, and it’s going to be a wedding, and it’s going to be a resurrection.
This beautiful peace lily, because we have a beautiful covenant of peace, with the beautiful yellow and white bow—I want to call that a glory bow—that came from Beau and Marion Neill. They sent it to us with the passing of our precious father, father-in-law, granddaddy, Dr. Kimble Love. They sent it to our home, so we’ve been enjoying the peace lily. And the Lord said, You need to bring it and let it sit.
I don’t know when I’ll be able to take that picture home, but I know that this picture has to stay here. If you look at this white rabbit, there are things that God puts along in our lives, things that are given to us, things that we acquire; and they’re reminders. this is prophesying. This is prophesying today about fruit. This is prophesying generationally. This is prophesying the word of the Lord. Do you see briars here? The promises of Abraham are upon us. Covenant promises are upon us.
On the mountain of the Lord it will be revealed. The Lord is calling you to the mountain. He is calling you to station yourself. He is calling you to abide. He is calling you to look and look again so that you can see.
This rabbit. It was the spring of first grade because it was Resurrection Day weekend. It happened that my cousins had come over from Jackson, a family of four boys and one girl. They had spent the weekend and had invited me to go home with them and spend Saturday night, then come back on Sunday. I have to tell you. Out of the three little girls, me included, she was the most beautiful child you’ve ever seen. She looked like the Koestler family—black hair, dark brown eyes, olive skin—beautiful. She looked like my daddy and the brothers, my uncles, and my grandfather. Just beautiful.
When you’re around someone that’s beautiful, you’re very aware that they’re beautiful. Have you every felt like an ugly duckling? I dealt with identity theft a long time in my life. Probably came with a spirit of rejection. So here we are. We wake up and of course the Easter bunny has come, because that’s where we’re living, right? It’s Easter Sunday, it’s Resurrection Day, but we know there are baskets waiting. We go in the living room and all the baskets are out. There are five beautiful yellow baskets chocked full of all kinds of stuff.
But then there’s a basket. And it is the most gorgeous basket I think I’ve ever seen. It’s wrapped with cellophane and a bow and ribbons and it was glorious. She said, I just know that’s my basket. And I’m like, I’m sure it is. No question that it could be mine. Never thought that it could be mine. Because my identity, who I believed that I was, wouldn’t allow me to even think, in the presence of someone so beautiful, that that could not be her basket. Especially when she told me it was her basket. Yes, that’s your basket.
When everyone woke, because we couldn’t touch them until, then her mother said, And Betty Lynn, this is your basket—because I have a Father in heaven who loves me. This rabbit was in this basket. I have had it/her since the 60s. But it’s a reminder that my Father in heaven loves me. And that my identity is not defined by stuff, but it is defined by who he says I am.
And the Lord says today, where you have felt unlovely, unworthy, like others always get into the water ahead of you, the Lord says a Reset has come. And your definition of who you are is going to be defined based on what is written in the book. He is ready to deal with hearts. He will take you back pre-womb to where you were formed. And he is ready to bring original intent into your life if you will let him.
So this is on our table in a place in the living room because when I sit in my spot, I’m reminded. It doesn’t matter what my parents have done. Doesn’t matter about the generations that have gone before me. The blood is enough. It doesn’t matter about how many things I’ve broken. How many times I’ve crashed and burned. The blood is enough.
Love Always Trusts. His love never fails. It never gives up. It never runs out on me. What else did I bring today? Tara Conard had an encounter. She and David are in alignment with us. They pastor New Zion out from Wiggins. Tara woke up this past week and had an encounter with, The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not WANT. The Lord showed her that this was the gateway to the rest of the Psalm, the realization. And that the promises and the covenant promises and provision were upon us.
That He was saying to Miracle City, that he was saying to Love Ministries families, that he was saying to New Zion, that he was saying to you and me personally and corporately, the Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not Want.
These are here because this picture transformed my life. When I was AWOL and running. Most of you know the story about how as a young girl in my 20s the Lord visited me for quite a while at night without dreams, but with his voice, God is good. God is good. God is good. I was so messed up, and it had come to the place where he was going to break the hardpan in my heart. And he was going to strip off everything that I had known since conception that robbed me of my birthright and my destiny. It was the beginning of the end. But it was a reset in bringing me into original intent.
What had happened, I was so angry; Kimble and I had filed for divorce. The Lord had restored us. And we were back living together in the same house letting God be God. Because we had forgotten him. I was alone, or thought I was, and had a lot of issues.
But the Lord began with work me, and because he couldn’t get my attention in the day, he got my attention in the night. So every night throughout the night, it seemed like from the time I closed my eyes until I woke up in the morning, I would hear, God is good. God is good. God is good. God is good. I hope you’re tracking with me and realize the reason he was doing that is because it is the goodness of God that leads men unto repentance. We need to stop being religious and to be relational. We need to realize what is going to turn hearts and keep them there.
So every morning, regardless of whether I wanted to or not, when I would wake up, these were hanging on our bedroom wall. My sweet mother-in-law had cross-stitched these. Kimble, with a scripture for his name. And me with a scripture for my name. So every morning, no matter how much I had said the night before, It won’t happen tomorrow, I’d wake up in a fetal position on my left side facing the wall and the first thing I saw was, Betty, Consecrated to the God. I didn’t know then, but that is what my name means. God’s gift, Consecrate. Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day. You know what this says? It’s Exodus 32:29. It’s a same day return.
Consecrate yourselves this day, today, unto the Lord so that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.
So every night, throughout the night, God is good. God is good. God is good. Yeah, right. Wake up. See the picture. Yeah, right. Get up out of the bed, madder than a hatter; and go though the day only to have it start all over again. The song that never ends. You know, Groundhog Day. I was it.
So the day came when I woke up that morning, and spirit and truth met, because it was Holy Spirit that was being relentless within my heart. God Himself, God is good. God is good. God is good. God is good. Betty, Consecrated to God. Until my identity and my belief system were changed. I’ll never forget the morning when I got it, and spirit and truth met, and took hold of me. Because I was born-again, and it was an inside job, repentance and brokenness came upon me.
Instead of getting up out of bed and stomping, I feel out of bed to my knees. And it began a relational journey and a transformation of God in my life, that I would not be here today. And he did it. He began to deal with bitter root judgments where I had blamed everybody else for who I was. And he began to deal with me.
Today he has come again again. And he is going to deal with the dross. He is going to deal with destiny thieves and devourers. He is going to deal with unbelief. He is going to deal with ungodly beliefs, ungodly soul ties, theologies, territorial spirits, generational spirits; and this is an unroot, tear down, destroy, and completely overthrown in you life, to prepare you to go into the next and run with what he is doing. Not only here, but in a nation.
Your birthright and your destiny is here to meet you face to face. And God is going to see that you birth the promise. Video of Lion King movie trailers.
Scar to Simba. Life’s not fair, is it my little friend? While some are born to feast, others spend their lives in the dark, begging for scraps.
Mufasa to Simba. Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.
Scar to Simba. Run away, Simba, and NEVER return.
Mufasa to Simba. You must take your place in the circle of life.
Betty. The lion’s not sleeping. He’s roaring.
On July 12, I want to remind those that have just come in, the word of the Lord came to me. I knew at some point in July that the Lion King was going to be released again. I’m not endorsing Disney. But I think Disney is an example. Unless there was a change at the end of Walt Disney’s life, he was a nonbeliever. You think about the creativity. You think about the ability to dream, and the great gift that God had put within the man. Yet he didn’t know Jesus. And not knowing Jesus is not knowing who you are. Because no one comes to the Father but through the Son.
The word of the Lord came to me on July 12 and he said, “Do you hear the sound of the roaring lion in the distance? As the Lion King is released in this nation, I’m going to roar over America. The Reset has begun.” I immediately looked to see when the release was coming of the movie and it was July 19. When you understand the 9s and 19s I thought, you can’t make this up.
Little did I know that at sundown on July 19 when this was launching, we began the 21 Days. From Tammuz 17 to Av 9. Av, Hebraically and prophetically is the Father’s month and is represented by the lion. The lion has roared. Who will not fear? Who can but prophesy? It’s your prophetic destiny. The Father has come to you and me again. We’ve come again again.
For me, I can guarantee you, I’m going in. Kimble Love, Anna Love, we are going in. Miracle City Global, we’re going in. And anyone that wants to come with us, to be led into the land to possess their inheritance. Let me say, True apostolic is about foundational giftings, that eat dirt and allow people to get on their back and be built up to reach their destiny. A true father or mother is going to lay down their life for their child. It’s the truth.
In the Lion King movie, the king laid down his life for his cub. Our Father has given his very best in Jesus. Where we are in this season. The Lord is calling you into your birthright and destiny, to receive the rights of the firstborn.
PowerPoint. The rights and privileges of our firstborn inheritance.
The major thing you inherit as the firstborn child is birthright. Everything that belongs to Jesus Christ belongs to you and me. Over these next several weeks, the messages that come out of this house are going to be about equipping you in birthright. Not just speaking at you, but to you. What comes out is going to unlock what is stored within you.
I’m not celebrating the film. I’m celebrating the prophetic that is within it. I want you to understand. If the Lord tells me that that when the Lion King is released in this nation that the Reset has begun in America, I believe it.
This is not church. When I say it’s not church, I’m talking about church that is a mindset and a belief system where you go into the building and the building is the church. The church is a living entity, being, that is made up of many members, and you’re it—The Church. When he says the gates of hell will not prevail against the church, it’s the ekklesia. It’s the ones that are called out to legislate heaven on earth. We are the church of the firstborn with full rights.
I’m excited. I’m encouraged. Not to give credit to the enemy, but just like the enemy, Scar, said to Simba, Run away. Run away. Run away. The blame game. You killed your father. Run away. That’s what the enemy wants us to do. He wants us to believe the lie that whatever we’ve done in our life, whatever liability we’ve allowed to come in—I’m not condoning murder but look at the life of David.
David royally messed up, so bad that anybody in America would disqualify him from being king. He would have been impeached. He would have been removed. Yet, because of his heart and the destiny that was upon his life, and because he had a heart after God, willing to do his will, he repented. And he was forgiven.
I don’t know of anybody in the line of faith that did not mess up somewhere. But God. The only one I know of that never messed up is Jesus.

Nala. Simba, you have to take your place as king.
Simba. What do you want me to do?
Nala. Come home.
Mufasa. Simba, you must remember who you are, the one true king. (Lion roars.) Simba, everything the light touches is our kingdom. One day the sun will set on my time here and will rise with you as the new king.
Simba. I want to be brave like you.
Mufasa. I’m only brave when I have to be. Remember who you are. You must take your place in the circle of life. (Lion roars.) Everything the light touches is our kingdom, but a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day the sun will set on my time here and will rise with you as the new king. Remember.
You might say, why over and over and over again? Because we need to hear it over and over and over again. Because the Lord is saying to the nation and even the nations, to the holy nation, to the chosen generation, and to this Judeo-Christian nation, It is time to remember who you are. And the lion is roaring.
Hosea 11:10 is going to become a kingdom reality on earth as it is in heaven. Because he is going to cause his children to come trembling from the west. And the Awakening that happens in this nation is going to be a sign to the nations that Awakening has come to the world.
How many of you know that you are kings right now? How many of you know that you are priests? How many of you know you have a prophetic anointing on your life? Because you are a son or daughter you will prophesy in the last days. It is given unto you to know the heart, the mind, the counsel of God. It is not just for the five-fold. To get off the five-fold we need to understand that five-fold will always be. There will always be leadership. Always. There will always be equipping of the saints so you can do the stuff. Not the other way around, so that WE can do the stuff.
Galatians 3:26-29. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ.
Have you believed in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and confessed him and believed in your heart that God raised him from the dead? So this is to you. You, we, are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female. You are all one in Christ Jesus.
So right now I take authority over prejudice, ungodly beliefs, and if you have anti-Semitism in your life, if you are anti-Semitic, or you’re anti-men or anti-women, or you are anti-this or anti-that, I’m here to tell you in the Body of Christ, we are all one in Christ Jesus. It doesn’t matter what your station is in life, there is no one telling you you can’t become who God says that you are.
It doesn’t matter where you have been born, what you have been born into. God doesn’t make mistakes, and he has come to finish what he has begun in you. It’s grow up time. If you belong to Christ then you are Abraham’s seed. And heirs according to the promise.
Say with me, I am an heir according to the promise.
Galatians 4:1. What I am saying, As long as the heir is a child he is no different from a slave although he owns the whole estate.
I own the estate. Can you say that? What estate do I have rights to. The estate of the Lord Jesus Christ and our inheritance that has been secured through Jesus. And in the earth, the enemy would like to keep you in the graveyard. He would like to keep you in darkness. If he can’t keep you there, he’d just like you to run away from your birthright and your destiny and have a good ‘Hakuna Matata’ time. ‘No Worries.’ Hei hei hei.
But the Word of God says, His yoke is easy and his burden is light. I want to be yoked with him and walk with him. And I want to run the race that he has run for me. And that big paw print on the ground, I’m just walking and moving in Jesus, and stepping in him. And my Father says, I’m going up the middle Betty. I’m ready to move. I’ve got an opening and I’m going up the middle. And, hei hei hei, I’m going with him.
What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child he is no different from a slave although he owns the whole estate. He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.
If you will let God the Father parent you, and let Holy Spirit and Jesus work within you to bring deliverance and healing and restoration and reformation and transformation to you personally. Don’t tell me about your children. Don’t tell me about your wife. Don’t tell me about your husband. I’m talking to you and me. It’s personal. But what you do is going to affect your entire family. It is going to affect future generations. It’s going to affect your territories, your tents and your treasuries. It’s going to affect a nation and nations. Because he is ready to give you the keys.
You grow up. You enter into his promises. You begin to occupy. But in order to do that, you are going to have to be occupied. I can guarantee you we will all be occupied with something. Either we will be fed up with self and pride and self-righteousness, and allow the kingdom of darkness to rule and reign; or we will be filled up with Him. And walk and act as we’ve been created to. We are spirit beings living in a body and we have a soul. Jesus is Lord and he has set us in the earth to bring his kingdom, to recover what has been lost, and to let his light shine.
:3 Also when we were children we were under slavery. We were in slavery under the basic principles of this world. But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, so that we might receive the full rights of sons.
Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, Abba, Father. So you are no longer a slave, but a son. And since you are a son, God has also made you an heir.
“Betty, you will lead my people into their inheritance.” What does that mean? I’m not the only one. But part of this house or this ministry, part of my calling, is to lead you into your birthright, your destiny, and your inheritance. So that you can come into all that he has created you to be. And you’ll function. And you’ll possess. And you’ll overcome. And that is a great honor. And that is what he is doing in this hour.
This 21 day period is about you going straight in. I have found my opening and I am going up the middle. I’m giving him an opening. Do you hear me? Amen? And I pray you will too. Yay God.
Father, I thank you that you are removing barriers, blocks, hinderances. I take you at your word and I’ve believed this for years. It came to me as a rhema.
Prepare ye! Prepare ye the way of the Lord. Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.
So Father, as your apostle, as your ministry gift, Jesus, I release your apostolic anointing. I release your prophetic anointing. I release the fullness of your Spirit, your authority to go into every heart and every life within the hearing of my voice. Within the hearing of your voice. That whatever obstacle, whatever block, whatever hindrance, has been in our lives, me first, that that very thing, that hardpan, that hard shell, that wall, whatever it might be, is removed.
Prepare ye. Prepare ye the way of the Lord. Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.
So Lord, may you manifest yourself within. May you pitch a tent of your presence and your glory over every individual, over their homes, over their coming and their going, and Lord may each one of us hear your voice, and have a look and look again so that we can know who we are in Christ. And not only will we be activated, but I call us to grow up in our salvation. I call us to come forth in our birthright and our destiny.
I call those that will have an ear. And it doesn’t matter if you’re ten, if you’re five, if you’re fifteen, or if you’re 75, or if you’re 100 years old. You have the same opportunity. Same opportunity. From the youngest to the oldest. From the oldest to the youngest. Into your birthright and your destiny. Come into your identity.
I bind every destiny thief, every destiny devourer. I go back even before you were conceived, and anything that has perverted or diverted your destiny, I bind it and break it off of your life in the name and the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. And I decree and declare that the blood of Jesus covers you, spirit, soul, body, birthright and destiny.
I speak to the very DNA, the Spirit of God and the blood of God, and the Word of God that is stored in your spirit man, and I call it to come alive and infuse your being with light and truth. I call the Word of God to fully function. I decree and declare that which is incorruptible in you, we humbly accept the word of God inborn by nature which can save us now. Whew. (Breath) Whoa. Whoa.
I heard the Lord say, Latitude and Longitude. He is redefining boundaries right now. Some of you, he’s bringing you in. Others of you are being expanded. Don’t you dare say that I don’t like that he would bring me back in. He is bringing you into a place where you will function within your boundaries, because you’ve been out of your lane.
The Lord is dealing with friendly fire. He is bringing the coal to your lips and my lips today. And where you have used your mouth to tear down others in the Body of Christ—it doesn’t matter if it’s the truth or not—he is going to cause you to zip your lip. He is going to deal with the planks that are in our eyes, because we have wanted to take the specks out of other eyes. We want to tell other people. We’ve wanted to armchair quarterback other people, and the Lord is saying, Stop it Now! Because I am dealing with you. Talking to me now. Me too. I’m not out of this.
Clean hands and a pure heart. I’m going to deal with idols. I’m going to deal with idolatry over a 21 day period. And the Lord said, Even as I caused Dagon to fall in the temple, I’m going to cause ungodly, little gods to fall before your very eyes. I’m going to open your eyes to see the scheme of the enemy. You’re going to have your way out. No temptation has seized you but what is common to man; and God is faithful. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear.
Anybody in this room or that is watching that has been dealing with pornography, that has been dealing with addiction, any form of slavery or garbage that you have been dealing with, the Lord is going to open up the way for you to come out of that. And the Lord says, If you will hear his voice and step out of it, you will shut a door in your life that will never be opened again. You will walk out clean and free and clear.
And the Lord says he will cover you in this hour. If you do not heed the word of the Lord in this hour, me first, the things that we are not willing to deal with, no matter how small or how big, they are going to be exposed. It’s not a threat. That is a promise. And I’m hearing it to me first. May the fear of God and the lovingkindness of God rise up in each one of us.
The Lord says, This is it. You’re going. You’re moving. You’re going to walk in freedom. You’re going to walk in authority. You’re going to walk in my anointing. You’re going to walk in my ability. You are going to see things that you’ve not been able to do come, come, come, come. And you’re going to walk and move in grace.
It’s time to get in the grace vehicle because you’re going to go in the race. It’s time. Grace, grace, grace is upon you enabling you, working within you. He is able to make all grace abound to you so that in all things at all times having all that you need, you may abound in every good work. His grace. Paul said, It’s not me doing the work. It’s the grace of God working in me.
God is not trying to get you to course-correct on your own. He’s not trying to get you to operate in the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, or the pride of life. He is saying, Come unto me. Cast your care on me. Let me do the work in you. Follow my lead. Abide in me. Live in me. Walk in me. Move in me. Have your being in me. Stay in that place of abiding. Give no place, give no place to the devil. Don’t boil over in this season. Don’t throw off your birthright or your destiny. Don’t sell your birthright.
It’s time for you to stay in that place of abiding. Keep your focus and your fix on Me. Give no place to the devil. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger. Do not give the devil a foothold. It is time for me to possess. It is time for me to fill. It is time for me to bring you into alignment. It is time for me to renew your heart and your mind.
I will turn the hearts of the fathers. I will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. Holy Spirit has come to turn your heart to the Father. And he is going to turn the hearts of the children to the fathers again. Clean hands and a pure heart. We don’t lift up our soul to an idol or swear by what is false. But we will receive blessing and vindication from our God. It’s generational. It’s personal. It’s corporate. It’s territorial. It’s time.
So I bless you in your birthright. I agree with what is written in your book, for you, for your family, for those that are connected and aligned. Every place the Lord has given me jurisdiction, I come into agreement with the heart of the Father, and I call it into the earth realm. And I decree and declare that the hardpan in our lives, in this nation, is plowed and broken open in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?My fear doesn’t stand a chance when I stand in your love.
Kimble Love. Glory to God. The enemy’s been defeated. He is under our feet, and when we stand in the love of God. There is no weapon formed against us that can prosper. It’s the love of God that draws men to repentance, that empowers and equips us to go forth, to complete everything he’s called us to do.
If you’re not walking in the love of God you’re falling short of the glory of God. Perfect love casts out fear. And Jesus is the symbol of perfection. He is the only One that’s been perfect in all of his ways. And he’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.
How many of you believe that? Then God is God and we’re not. I think some of us need to get that deep down in our spirit. That he is God, and we are not. We’re in his image. We’re like him but we’re not him.
He is in us and if we’re going to walk in the fullness of sonship, we need to allow him to lead. Glory to God. We’re going to have an awesome day in the Lord because the Spirit of God is here to teach us, train us, and equip us. We don’t have to establish God’s preeminence every time we come in here. He is our foundation. He is The Foundation. And I don’t have to have God’s foundation established in my life every time I come in here to meet. Because he is already established. It’s time to move forth in who we are. We are not to ever forget that.
I want to bounce off of the Lion King theme since that’s been brought up today. We saw the movie last night, a remake of the 90s cartoon. It was a Walt Disney film, but it was spiritually moving to me when I saw it. It really spoke to me. So last night I went with an expectation of seeing and hearing something and I was not disappointed.
I cried through almost the whole movie. There were scenes that were moving. Rafiki was like a prophet. He was like a spiritual leader. When he came to Simba and said, Don’t ever forget who you are, he’s like, But I miss my dad. He’s gone. And he says, No he’s not. I’ll take you to him. Hurry up. So you’re thinking maybe Mufasa didn’t die. We just thought he was dead. So Simba is running through the jungle at night following this crazy mandrill (monkey) hoping to see his father.
He takes him to a stream and said, Here’s your father right here. Simba said, Where? He said, Look. And he saw his reflection. Samba said, That’s not my father. He said, Yes it is. Your father is in you.
Look, the Father is in us. If you want to see the Father, look in the mirror and see the Father in you. That just spoke to me. I just lost my earthly father. He went to be with the Lord a couple of weeks ago. That just really spoke to me. I’m like, I love my dad and my dad’s in me. He always will be.
I’ve always heard you wake up one day, and you know you’re getting old when you look in the mirror and you’re looking at your dad. Hey, that’s a blessing.
When we look at who we are, and really who we are, then we don’t have any excuse. Jesus said, If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father. Because I’m in the Father and the Father’s in me. And the Spirit of the living God is in every one of us. But he’s not just there for us to carry around and live our life any way we want to. We need to live a live according to that reflection, to allow what’s in us to come out. And walk in the fullness of all that he’s created us to be.
Because every action is met with a reaction. Also every inaction is met with a reaction. Whatever we do carries consequences. And whatever we don’t do carries consequences. I just want to encourage you today. Allow your life, your walk, your actions, to be led by the Spirit of God that’s within you.
In this world that we live in, starting here right first, starting at home with the family, you are Jesus to those you are in contact with. Everything we do has a reaction. In the movie, Hakuna Matata means No Worries. When Simba ran away from all his promises and purpose, he comes to agree with Pumba and Timon and their philosophy of Hey, No worries. Do what you wanna do. Life has no meaning. You live. You eat. You die. And it’s over with.
But Simba knew there was more to life than that. Because it’s a circle. It went around. Pumba said, Who told you that circle of life stuff? You mean something I do affects somebody else? Hahahaha! Ridiculous. But it does.
There was a scene where Simba had grown and become a young lion. His mane had grown out, and a piece of his mane came out and was blown in the wind. It got caught up in a whirlwind and ended up on a tree branch on a leaf. A giraffe ate the leaf with the fur. You thought it was gone, but No. It’s the circle of life.
Then a dung beetle rolls it up. When it breaks apart, a bird got it. It was a process. Some ants carrying leaves got the fur and went up a tree. There was Rafiki the mandrill. He grabbed that piece of fur, sniffed it, and said, Whoa, Simba! It had come all this way.
God is always moving. He is a way-maker. He can take the simplest little things, a little piece of fur, and blow it across the land, and bring redemption. It’s all about redemption. We’ve all been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. We’re not just here to try to feel good and make it through life, and just walk in blessing and wait for Jesus to come get us at the appointed time. No. He brought us here to display his glory and show the world who He is through us. We have a purpose. And it’s not to just sit on a bench and watch life pass us by. It’s not to just sit back and wait for God to do something.
God is within us. He’s given us the ability to make things happen. He is God and we’re not. It’s time to get up and get out in the highways and the byways. I’m not talking about getting on the street corner and preaching and calling down fire. I’m just talking about walking in the fullness of who God is. By loving people as he loves. You can’t look anywhere and see anything or anybody that God doesn’t love.
Paul said, Oh wretched man that I am. But if God can save, heal, and deliver me, there’s no one worse, because I’m the worst of the worse. We need to learn to love one another. We need to walk in love. We need to put the curses out of our mouth, out of our thoughts, out of our minds, and allow Holy Spirit to be our guide in all things. To look to Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. To rise up to be the ones that bring forth Holy Spirit, Son of God change in this world in which we live in.
So Father, we’ve gathered here today to honor you, to worship you, to empty ourselves of self, and say, Lord fill us up with all that you are. Help us to realize that you are our hope and our future. You are our very great reward. I thank you today Lord that you have redeemed us by your blood. We have been delivered and made free.
Father God, I thank you that even as I stand here today that I am still being delivered. We have not arrived, but we’re in motion. We’re in transition. You’re taking us through to the other side when we walk in the fullness of your glory. I thank you that today you empty us of self, that we quit looking back, but we look ahead to that which you have made and poured out before us.
Lord, we want to walk in your footsteps. We want to walk in the direction that you’ve laid out and marked before us. And we’ll not look to the left or to the right. But we look straight ahead into the fullness of your glory. And see your goodness come before us and fill this land. So Father we praise you today and we thank you. We say, Have your way. Release the fullness of heaven in our midst. Show yourself mighty to us and through us as we worship today, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Let’s worship for He is worthy.
?Our fight is with weapons unseen. Your enemies crash to their knees. As we rise up in worship the battle belongs to our God. The victory is yours. You’re riding on the storm. Your name is unfailing. Your name is unshaken. We pull down heaven with shouts of praise. A God all powerful, all powerful.
I can hear the sound of the Lion roaring in the earth. He’s gonna shake everything that can be shaken and move everything that can be moved.
We’re gonna take back all the enemy has stolen. With the wind at our back and in the strength of the Lord, we will rise on the wings of the dawn.
It’s in the blood of the One who is worthy. I know God’s not forgotten all that’s lost and broken. Come see his sons and daughters rise. We’re gonna plunder the pits of hell. You’re worthy Jesus. We lift up the name of Jesus. You’re worthy.
Nita Maselle. I saw a bandage being ripped off. I believe the Lord is saying, No more temporary fixes and no more covering it up and dealing with it later. But that he wants to come and take what has hindered you, or ailed you in your body, or your walk, and he wants to bring a solution. He wants to go to the very source of what the issue is. He is your cure. He is your cure—and he is ready to heal you, and he is ready to be your cure, for whatever is ailing you, whatever has caused you to have a temporary fix, to have a coverup, to have something that wasn’t totally taken care of but it was just covered over for a time. He’s ready to deal with it. Anything in your walk. Anything in your body that has hindered, that has come. He is ready to bring the fix on it. Thank you Father.
Father, we thank you that you are the Cure. We thank you that you are the Healer. And we thank you that you have provided that and you are doing that in us. Lord, we say Yes. We yield ourselves to you to bring a permanent healing and fix. And no more temporaries. No more limiteds. In the name of Jesus. We allow you to take care of what ails our body and our walk, spiritually, physically, emotionally, mentally, whatever it is Lord, in the name Jesus. We yield to the Healer today in Jesus name.
Betty. Yay God. We receive. We yield to you. Healer in the house.
Kimble Love. Jesus is the Cure to whatever ails you. Lord we thank you today that you sent Jesus to fulfill your plans and your purposes in the earth. That he came and took on human flesh to fulfill your righteous decrees and laws. He came to do what we couldn’t do ourselves. To lay down his life for us. Because you loved us so much. And that you were not a God that could be mocked. Or that you mind would ever be changed. But Lord you did whatever needed to be done to fulfill your purposes. With that said today, I know that you still do whatever you need to do to fulfill the purposes in our lives you created us for.
So Lord, today as we gather to worship, we thank you for the atoning blood of Jesus. We thank you that he redeemed us from the curse of the law. And that he brought us into right standing, right relationship, and right fellowship, with the one true King, the Lord of Lords, the Father of all.
So today as we worship, Lord, we come and bring a token, a part of that which you have blessed us with, the fruit of our labors, to sow into the work of the ministry, your kingdom in the earth, our tithes, our offerings, our first fruits, that which you have caused us to decide upon, to invest in your kingdom work. Lord, we come today and we cheerfully give.
Father, I thank you that we’re in a time of supernatural breakthrough, supernatural multiplication. It is a time and a season for your goodness to be made, so manifest in us that the world can no longer resist. Father, give us words and wisdom that are beyond our abilities. May we walk in the full manifestation of the sons of God. May we demonstrate your power and presence wherever we go and whatever we do. I ask it in the name of Jesus.
And Lord as we come today to give of our gifts, we come to your table to partake of Holy Communion. Of the blood and the body of Christ. When Jesus met with his disciples at the last supper, he took the bread and broke it and said, This bread represents my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me.
After the meal he took the cup and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink of it, do it in remembrance of me. So today we come to the table of the Lord to eat of the bread which is his body, and drink of the cup which is his blood. And we are going to identify with the blood and the body of Jesus.
And as we take these elements into our bodies, we’re symbolically taking and receiving the body and the blood of Jesus into our bodies. So Lord we say thank you today for your body. We thank you for your blood. We thank you and we receive the full benefits of your new covenant. That entails salvation, deliverance, healing, power, and provision. The ability to go forth and walk by the Spirit and to see your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. We give you praise and thanksgiving. We say, Have your way, in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen and Amen.
?In my Father’s house there’s a place for me. I’m a child of God. Yes I am. I am chosen. You are for me. I am who you say I am. Who the Son sets free is free indeed.
Anna Love. Thank you Lord, that we are children of God, that we know our place, that we know where we belong. Father, I thank you for this morning. I thank you that you are going about in this place and sons and daughters are awakening to who they truly are. We just submit ourselves unto you as we take these next few moments. I pray that as this word goes forth that it will minister to hearts, that it will take hold of people’s hearts, Father, as you’ve been taking hold of my heart.
Lord, I pray that anything, any blocks, any boarded up places, any hardpan places, would be broken right now in this moment. Father, just have your way. Blow on this word. Blow on hearts. I thank you that a seed would be planted this morning, a seed that will take root. In Jesus name.
I want to share with you words that I’ve been hearing for over a month now. The Lord’s been stirring it in my heart. I was originally going to share last week, but we didn’t have service. A lot of times the Lord gives me a right now word that has to be said right now. So my prayer was, Is this word going to be for next week?
He showed me the words he’s given me in this hour is not a word for one moment, but the word for The Moment. That we are standing in THE MOMENT. When I was putting it together I wanted to say, Your Moment. But the Lord showed me it is about our particular moment as individuals, but we’re standing in The Moment. We are standing in His Moment.
We are standing in a fulfillment of all things kind of moment. And I think so many times we don’t take it seriously. We don’t take seriously what God has said. We don’t take seriously that we standing in the last days. We don’t take seriously his word going forth in power, with signs and wonders and miracles. And we wonder why we’re not seeing healing and deliverance, and addiction being done away with in the church. Because we’re not taking it seriously.
We want to know why we don’t see breakthrough in our finances, and breakthrough in our families. Because we’re not taking it seriously. We’re not taking the word of God seriously. We’re not taking his promises seriously. We’re not acting justly. And you make think, Well I’m not doing anything. You may think, Well I act justly. I’m the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Yes you are, but do you always act like it? No, probably not.
If you got mad at the person in front of you in traffic on the way here, you weren’t acting righteously. If you snapped at your husband or your wife or your son or your daughter this morning getting ready for church, you weren’t acting righteously. If you come in here and hear a prophetic word yourself, and you come up here with the mic and give it as the true word of God, yet you go out of here cursing, you’re not acting righteously, me first.
This may sound hard, but too bad. I don’t say that being flippant. I say that because where we are is so important. What God is doing is using this morning to be in your face and say, It’s The Moment. It’s The Moment you’ve been waiting for. It’s The Moment and you have to take it seriously.
What if I told you that I had a solution for you, for your life, that you would be blessed in your finances, that you would be blessed in your home, that you would be blessed in your family. Anything that you set your hands to do would prosper. Anything you did would be prosperous. That you were just blessed beyond blessed beyond blessed. If I had the one solution.
Well, I do and you do, too. Because everyone in this house that I know of is saved and has Jesus living on the inside of them. Alright, we have the solution. We are carriers of the solution, so stop being the problem, me first. Because the Lord is looking for something to work with. Just give him something to work with. Lord, I want to give you something to work with.
I pray this morning that this word is abrasive to you. Sometimes it takes things that are abrasive to grab hold of us and make us think and make us look at our lives. I want to be uncomfortable. I want to be uncomfortable where I can change. The reason this is coming forth this way, as I was coming here this morning the Lord said,
“I am going to take hold of the attention of the people. I’m going to take hold of your attention.” Where you’ve been distracted, and you haven’t been able to listen, or where you’ve heard a word come in one ear and go out the other, and it’s, What did they say? The Lord is saying, “No, I’ve taken hold of you.” He’s in our face this morning and he’s not going to quit, because this is The Moment.
This is THE MOMENT of All Moments. It’s so much bigger than just us and our stuff. It’s so much bigger. The whole world hangs in the balance based on this moment. The whole world hangs in the balance based on your decision. You may think you’re insignificant, but it takes all of us as Christians, as the Church, all of us as one coming together as the Bride of Christ. It takes all of us.
From the youngest to the oldest person. It takes all of us. From the greenest to the most mature. It takes all of us. It takes all of us functioning in who we are in Christ Jesus. It takes all of us. I heard the Lord say this morning that no one is going to be left behind in this hour unless that choose to go a different way. The heart of the Father is that you would go forward, that I would go forward, that we as a house would go forward in our birthright and our destiny and all that he has for us.
But he’s laid it before us and he’s made it so serious. That we literally get to choose everything you’ve ever hoped for, everything you’ve ever dreamed of, everything you’ve ever desired. Every word the Lord has ever given you is right here. And to go away from it is right here, and he’s giving you the choice.
So, you cannot look back on these days and say, Well my opportunity never came. Or, Things didn’t line up how I hoped they would. I don’t feel like I ever got to do what I was supposed to do. No. The Lord is saying that it is right before you now. It is literally at arms length. Heaven is at arms length. He’s just saying, Reach out and take it.
But it’s like she was talking about this morning, it’s like David. I can’t make sacrifices unto God that cost me nothing. There is a cost.
There is a cost. Our actions, our attitudes. They have to be in alignment with God. And that’s not law. That’s just, Are you going to act righteously or unrighteously? You all know that I’m not perfect. It’s not if the trials come, but when they come. No one forces us to blow up in anger. No one forces us to have a wrong attitude. No one forces us to respond unrighteously.
Because in the Word it says, When the trials come. It’s up to us as believers, if we are who we say we are, to act righteously. Because anyone in this room, myself included, if we act unrighteously it’s not because we didn’t know. In the heart of hearts it’s not because we didn’t know.
Also this morning, it’s a time to take a clear look at ourselves, at our lives, just as this is the filmstrip month, to look at the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want to say this very carefully because I want you to understand. Whenever we say this is the filmstrip month, it’s literally so you can go back and the Lord can show you different times and seasons in your life where you excelled, where you made the right decision, where you were everything you were supposed to be in those moments.
But it’s also to show you where you failed. it’s to show you where you came up short. It’s to show you where you acted unrighteously. Where you had a bad attitude. Anger. All these things. It’s time we take a clear look at that. That we really see ourselves as who we are, where we are, what we’ve done. And I want you to be careful, because at the same time, the flip side of that is we cannot get stuck in shame or regret of the past. You cannot change the past. But you can change the future.
You can’t change what you did five years ago but you can change what you do today that shapes what you do the next five years and the next five years and the next five years. Because I don’t want to be who I was five years ago. In five years I don’t want to be who I am today. I want to be more. I want to be even further in this walk that he has for me. And I want the same for you, too.
But we have to be willing to admit our shortcomings. I don’t necessarily mean going out and telling people, but you have to admit it to yourself. Your biggest enemy is yourself. Because the person we’re the least honest with most of the time is ourself. We are self-deceived to think, Well I can do this and it’s okay because of x, y, and z. Or, I was raised this way, and I can do this over here because… We can’t do that because it’s justifying sin.
What is sin? Sin is missing the mark. So anything that misses the mark is sin, right? We have to remain honest with ourselves. This will resonate with a lot of you. Has anyone ever gone on a diet? (laughter) Has anyone ever counted calories? Has anyone ever done anything like that and you track it and do all this stuff? And you’re good for a few days and something comes and along and, Oh I’ll just try this and I’ll try that.
A couple weeks go by and it’s, Why am I not losing weight? I’ve only been eating a thousand calories! What’s up with this? And then you realize you let all these little things in that seemed like nothing and they made you stuck where you were. You had a goal. You had a place where you were going. And the time went by but you’re still in the same place. I don’t want us to be like that in our lives.
The word. The Moment is now. Destiny, Purpose, Response. It all hangs in the balance.
Everything I’ve shared is a precursor to what we’ll be talking about today. I really want to stress the importance of this message. It’s not because the Lord gave it to me. It has nothing to do with me really. But it is so important. The Lord has literally come to you this morning to be in your face. Have you ever had somebody get in your face? It’s uncomfortable. Well the Lord is in your face this morning. He’s in my face.
On the morning of 6/28/19 I was praying and studying. Have you ever prayed something and when it came out you were like, What? I was praying and these words came out of my mouth. Hold fast to me God as I hold fast to you. All I can do is trust you. Over and over again I kept saying, Hold fast to me God. A lot of times in scripture and even when we pray, we pray about holding fast to God, or holding fast to the Word of God. But it kept coming up in my spirit, God hold fast to me.
I know he never lets go of us. He’s always holding on to us. I realized this time we’re in, especially the next 21 days, what is happening is a whole lot of shaking. For over a month now it will just come up in my spirit, Hold fast to me God. It’s because of this time we’re entering in. I’ve been unknowingly preparing my spirit. God hold onto who I truly really am, to who you say I am, to the righteousness of Christ Jesus that’s within me. Hold onto that. Let it be my firm foundation and shake off everything else.
The Moment is now. Destiny, Purpose, Response. It all hangs in the balance.
Loose that man and let him go.
John 11:43-44. Now when he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, Lazarus come forth. And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, Loose him and let him go.
I woke up two weeks ago, on Monday morning after the Sunday that Brad had given the word on the new Hebraic month of Tammuz, and I kept hearing, Loose that man and let him go. It was interesting that I had never seen this scripture like this before. It says when Lazarus came out—I had never thought about it; you think about the grave clothes—he came out bound. And he had his eyes covered.
Think about him coming out of the grave completely bound, slowly moving, and his eyes were covered. What I realized is, and it tags onto some of the word given this morning, it’s time for us to come out of the dark. It’s time for us to come out of the dead place. It’s time for us to come out of the grave clothes. We need to look a little further at those grave clothes, because those grave clothes have kept us bound. And they’ve cut off our vision.
It’s so important that we come out of the grave. That’s where we are this morning. We’re coming out of the grave. It’s important that we come out all the way. Don’t come out and take just part of it off. It’s fine. I can just get by with this. Or, I can move some.
The Lord is wanting full mobility in his body and he is wanting our eyes wide open. Have you ever heard somebody say, I just can’t look, I’ve got to close my eyes, over some situation or something happening? Maybe you’ve done it yourself. The Lord is saying, No matter what comes, it’s so important in this hour that we keep our eyes wide open. Because it’s all about vision.
Have any of you felt rattled? Like things have come to rattle your cage? Maybe you feel like with life circumstances, it’s just one thing after another. You feel so shaken and rattled. Or maybe that’s not the case. Maybe your mad and you don’t know why. It’s like anything anyone says to you, Oh they’re just trying to rattle my cage. Ever heard that expression?
I kept hearing that and I saw someone literally in a cage. I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, News Flash. I was going to put that up there, but the Lord said, No, Breaking News. Because there is news this morning and it’s breaking every chain.
The word of the Lord from Betty Love is, Do you hear the sound of the roaring lion in the distance? As the Lion King is released in this nation, I am going to roar over America. The Reset has begun. Prophetic word 7/12/19.
If you feel shaken, or like your cage is rattled, there is some breaking news for you, the Lion is roaring, and any junk or stuff or garbage that’s been deep within you for a long time, it’s shaking and shaking and shaking out. So you might feel uncomfortable, or mad, or have all these emotions stirring in you. You may have even said, Lord what is wrong with me? What is this? Why am I acting this way? I don’t even want to act this way. What is my problem? That’s been my cry lots of times.
He is revealing things to heal, things we need deliverance from. This is not a season where we have to go searching and digging deep within ourselves to see what we have wrong in our lives. No. The Lion of the tribe of Judah is roaring and anything in us that’s ungodly or that perverts destiny, or that is not kingdom or righteous, is being shaken out. So you can either yield to this time of shaking or you can resist it. But if you resist, you will be like one that is tossed by the waves, and you will stand up and you will be bruised. That might sound hard.
But the Lord is saying it is time that we rise up. Many of you know the Word. You know scripture. You know so many things. You’re mature people. But do we always act like it? No. The Lord is saying, Time’s Up. Like she shared this morning. I was hearing, Time’s Up. All day long yesterday, Time’s Up.
That’s not to say that hope’s gone. Or that we’re lost and there’s no hope. But it’s like the Lord said, We’ve acted this way for long enough. He’s been preparing, preparing, preparing, and he’s saying, It’s time for the rubber to meet the road. If you want to operate, if you want to function, then you have to be willing.
I’m not saying I couldn’t do this myself, because I’m not about to say I’m infallible of anything. None of us should. But it really grieves my heart; it hurts me in my spirit whenever people are so law-driven, yet they can’t even follow the set of rules they base for everyone else. Whenever they use the Word of God to beat people. Yet they live a double standard.
If you want to carry the sword, you have to be willing to be pierced by the sword. If you want to carry the sword, then you have to be willing to be pierced by the sword. You know that scripture, Judge not lest ye be judged. That really means that whatever measure you’re wanting to use, you better turn it around and put the measure back on yourself.
It’s time we rise in righteousness. It’s time we let go of our laws. It’s time we let go of our version of the truth. It’s time we let go of all these manmade commandments. I’m not talking about the truth and the living Word of God. There are so many directives for us in the Bible and examples on how to live. I’m talking about any place we’ve come in and perverted and misrepresented God. When we do that, we’re exalting ourselves higher than God and saying we know best. What is that? That’s pride and that’s a terrible thing.
We’re in the Hebraic month of Tammuz, the month for vision and the filmstrip month. Learn from your past. Do not get stuck in shame, past or present. It’s time to deal. That’s our key. Don’t get stuck in shame.
Just believe. Never doubt. In James it says that if it’s the will of the Lord it will be done. I have the revelation that I’ve kind of twisted that scripture. And there are things I’ve hope for, believed for, prayed about, that I knew it was the Lord. But I said, If it’s the Lord’s will, it will happen. What I was really doing in that moment, instead of saying, Lord I submit myself unto you. Whatever you want to do, I’m good with it. I didn’t stand on the word that he told me, that was confirmed by others, that was the true word of God. I just said, Well if it’s the will of the Lord it will happen. And that way I don’t get my hopes up. That’s not how our God operates.
I was having this revelation over the last two weeks and as I was praying I heard the Lord say, What do you believe? I was praying about this house, about personal things, about corporate things. We’re believing the Lord for a lot, for the Lord to transform a whole city. I know you’re believing for things not just for the house but in your personal life.
Sometimes we wait and we wait and we wait, and we get kind of tired in our waiting. Then it’s like, This isn’t going to happen. This isn’t really you, God. Or maybe I heard wrong. Can you just show me because I don’t want to do this anymore. Has anybody ever felt like that? Yes. I was praying and asking the Lord these things, and even praying about doubt and about unbelief.
And every time I would start he was, No, what do you believe? I just kind of brushed it off. Then I would hear, No, what do you believe? The same thing, No, what do you believe? We’re in a time and season where the Lord is saying, No, what do you believe? I’ve told you the word over and over and over again. I’ve confirmed the word through the mouth of two or more witnesses. Not just once, not just twice, but over and over again. We have so many people in this house who have gotten words from the Lord themselves and they have been confirmed, but they have taken a while to get here. Some of you are still waiting.
The Lord is saying, I have confirmed. I have said. I have spoken to you that word over and over and over again. Would you just believe it? Because until we believe it, it’s not going to happen. The basis of our faith is belief. So what do we get tripped up in the most? Doubt and unbelief. As Christians, how are you saved? Through faith. Through believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross and in three days he rose again. It’s all about believing. Just believe.
It’s not just our moment. It’s The Moment. It’s about all of us. It’s about you, your children, your grandchildren. It’s about future generations.
Ephesians 3:20 Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more that your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination. He will outdo them all for His miraculous power constantly energizes you.
Who needs this scripture in your life? I know I sure do. I encourage you this week to read the book of Ephesians. And begin praying God would establish that book in your life and make it so a part of you. Right now it is a word that we need to live by. It’s a word we need activated in our lives.
What do you believe? James 1:6-8. Just make sure you are empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes for one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas, driven and tossed by the wind, up one minute, tossed down the next. When you are half-hearted and wavering, it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you are in that condition?
That scripture goes with what I was saying. How can we even ask when we don’t believe? Why would I come and say, Hey, can I have a glass of water? If I didn’t believe she could get me a glass of water, does that even make sense? Sometimes we don’t look at the practical side of things. If you ask a question when you already believe the answer is no, why are you asking? The Bible says, Ask and you shall receive. But you have to believe. If you believe for one minute and doubt the next, you’re like someone tossed by the sea, and I don’t want to be that way.
Betty. I know she didn’t plan to ask me the question, and I didn’t know she was going to ask me the question for a glass of water, but before she ever asked the question, I had already gotten her a bottle of water and put it down here. Even though she has some, she has extra. Is that not like our heavenly Father? Before we ever ask, he already has the provision. He already has the solution. This is a done deal.
Anna. Our Foundation of Faith—Belief. Romans 10:9. If you declare with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. We started off the day talking about deliverance. This is a day for deliverance, but this is also the day of salvation. I know most all of you in this house and I know that you are saved and have asked Jesus to be Lord of your life, but I think a lot of times life and through the storms of life, we are drowning in many things. And the Lord is come to save us this morning. The Lord has come to save YOU this morning.
If you have felt like things are too heavy, if you have felt down under, lost, or broken, dissatisfied, angry, or hopeless, fearful or full of shame, full of disappointment, or like you don’t measure up, the Lord is coming to pull you out this morning. He is coming to save you. He is going to wipe you off, brush you off, pick you up, clean you up, and he is going to set you in order, at one with him, and you are going to know who you are like you’ve never known before. It’s not just who you are, but who he is in you. And who he has created you to be. Rise up sons and daughters.
It’s time to come out of the grave, the prison, the cage. James 2:23-26. The scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. And he was called God’s friend. You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. In this same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did, when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
I don’t want to be a dead work. I don’t want to be dead weight. And I don’t want to have dead faith. And I don’t want you to, either. But what I’m really hearing the Lord say is that we’ve talked the talk but we haven’t walked the walk. And not only have we talked the talk, but we’ve talked the talk and expected others to walk the walk, and thought that we could go around it.
The time of, Rules don’t apply to me, is over. What’s the word we’ve been saying for the last two years? We’re on a level playing field. Equal opportunity. It’s equal opportunity. You can’t say you didn’t have the opportunity. Because the opportunity is here this morning. The moment is here. All you have to do is be willing to submit to the Lord. Be willing to let go of yourself.
Just believe. Romans 4:1-3. Abraham justified by faith. What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, 12748 discovered in this matter? If in fact Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about. But not before God. What does scripture say? Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.
So Abraham believed. He is the father of faith. And through Abraham we have the same opportunity. We have an example despite circumstances, despite whatever comes in life, despite your age, despite your home situation, despite your family—just believe. Do you realize that we don’t have to do one thing? It’s so simple. Just believe. Just believe and all those things will be. But it takes our belief.
4:16 Therefore the promise comes by faith so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring. Not only those who were of the law, but also those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. He is our father in the sight of God whom he believed. God gives life to the dead and calls into being things that are not.
Where are we this morning? Coming out of the grave. The life-giver is here and he is calling us, the very voice, the very sound, the very roar of Jesus is calling you forward to come out of the grave. Whenever the Lord began to show me that about Lazarus, I heard the Lord say, Anna, come out of the grave. Anna, come out of the grave. And I started feeling this momentum in me. It’s like the Lord began to declare the word over me. As I could hear him say, Anna, come out of the grave, then I started seeing different areas of my life come out of the grave. Old cycles, wrong thinking. I speak to my mind, Come out of the grave. Places where I made bad decisions.
Place where I made bad financial decisions. My finances, Come out of the grave. Places where I acted unjustly. Lord, may my actions, may my deeds come out of the grave. Any area of your life, you can begin calling out of the grave. I think it’s so important that we take hold of that. It’s so important that we take it seriously. It’s so important that we know who we are.
There is an underlying theme throughout the Word of God and it’s constantly telling us who we are. And it’s constantly telling us how much power and authority we truly walk in in this earth that we’ve been given by God. From Genesis to Revelation he’s constantly telling us. We always say God and the devil are not equal, and they’re not.
But did you know that the devil is not above us? That he has no power or authority over us? And that we can tell him to get beneath us? I think that’s something you really need to take hold of and need to go out of here with. Because we need to start putting that one thing into action. We have more power in Jesus than the enemy.
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations. Just as it had been said to him, So shall your offspring be. Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead since he was about 100 years old. And that Sarah’s womb was also dead.
Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God. But was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he promised. This is why is was credited to him as righteousness. The words, it was credited to him, were written not for him alone, but also for us to whom God will credit righteousness, for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.
He was delivered unto death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. Whenever we believe, it produces righteousness in our life. Just believe.
This is what spurred me into sharing with you. As we entered into this month of Tammuz, it’s the filmstrip month. It’s about stepping into Godly cycles. We talked that Sunday about the star that the wise men saw that led them to Jesus. I woke up that Monday and kept hearing, Unto us a child is born. And then I kept hearing, A star is born. This ringing out.
Everywhere I went I tried to see if music was playing or what was going on. I was so broken. I’m not a crier. I’m pretty solid. The whole day we had meetings. From the time I opened my mouth to share with Betty to the time our meeting was over, I could not stop crying.
In our portal in Madison, the whole time leading worship, I could not stop crying because I was overwhelmed with the presence and the glory and the power of God and knowing that we are in The Moment. I had talked about letting the Lord plumb line us recently, and stepping into his cycle. He goes out before us and comes up behind us, and it is a cycle. And if we’re in alignment with him, no matter where we go he’s always before us and always behind us.
We are in The Moment. We are in the big reveal. It is the Song of all Songs. It’s that Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty. Do you know where you are? It’s like she said this morning, this isn’t church. I would say that the moments that we have in this place are more real than any other moments in your life. The moments that you have in the presence of the Lord are more real than anything else.
And in that I pray that your heart will be so filled and taken hold of that in areas of your life, you can’t get by with things. You can’t get by with neglecting things. You can’t get by with neglecting your family. You can’t get by with neglecting your responsibilities. If we’re going to live righteously, the Lord has shown us how to live. He’s shown us what’s important. It’s time to step into the plumb line of God, and into his cycle.
This is where we are. We’re in Isaiah 6. In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord high and exalted, seated on the throne and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings. Two wings covered their faces and with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying, and they were calling to one another, Holy Holy Holy is the Lord Almighty. The whole earth is full of his glory.
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
Woe to me, I cried. I am ruined. For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.
Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, See, this has touched your lips; your guilt it taken away and your sin atoned for.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said, Here am I. Send me. He said, Go and tell this people:
Be ever hearing but never understanding. Be ever seeing, but never perceiving. Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.
Then I said, For how long, Lord? And he answered: Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, until the Lord has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken. And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land.
There was a word in the house about a green shoot. When we moved into the building, 1/1/17, there was a green plant growing up in the crack in the concrete in here. Because when a seed goes in the ground, I hear the Lord saying, You planted the seeds, and you waited, and the ground has been dry, and it looked like your harvest was coming up just for something to come and cut it down. But the Lord is saying the green is coming. It’s coming back to life. But in the hope and joy of that, you know what cuts off promise? Pride.
In Isaiah 6 you can equate Uzziah’s name with pride. He became king when he was 16 years old. It was an unusual circumstance, because you usually become king when your father dies. But his father was still alive. There were many things the Lord did for Uzziah. He blessed him and gave him victory. But instead of honoring God, he became boastful. He became prideful. He became consumed with himself and his greatness and his might and his power. And he lost sight of God.
He was so audacious that he went into the temple and tried to give sacrifices and burn incense to the Lord when the only ones allowed to do that were the priests. Thank God for the priests in those days, who instead of just submitting to the king, rose up in righteousness and said this isn’t okay.
Uzziah’s name goes back to pride. Pride is the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself or one’s importance. It’s arrogance, vanity, self-importance, hubris, self-conceit, deceit, self-love, self-admiration, self-glorification, self-adulation, narcissism, egotist, presumption, haughtiness, snobbery, disdain, condescension, pretentiousness, big-headedness, swollen-headedness, vainglory, etc.
I liked this quote. Pride is really a function of focus. When I’m focused on me, my view selfishly narrows until me is all I can see. When I focus on Him, my proud heart melts and I find the joy and freedom that humility always brings. The opposite of pride is Humility.
Pride is really the function of your focus. We’re in a season for vision. If you are full of pride, then your vision will be cut off. I’m saying this to myself first because this word has been hitting me. There are areas of pride that may not look like what you think pride is. I have a problem and I’ll be open and honest about it. A lot of times I’ll do things and I really need help. This whole Worship Team can attest to that.
I’ll pick up something or move something that I really need help with, and I won’t ask anybody. I’ll just do it myself. I’ve had to do that in the past because nobody was available. It’s one thing if nobody is available. If you’re operating that way, you’re really saying you don’t need anybody’s help. And it’s not just, I can do this on my own. It’s, There may not be anybody so I have to do this on my own.
There are places of pride in us that we need to address. If you think, Nobody can do it as well as I can do it, that’s pride. Or, I’m not going to ask anybody for help because they won’t do it as well as I can. That’s pride. And that’s a bad thing.
So pride is not always, I’m so great and I just want to tell everybody about it. Pride is sometimes the unspoken things. It’s the things that look like we’re just doing our own thing. And really what is that? It goes back to pride. It’s self-focused.
The other things that’s big as well is false humility. If you’re truly humble, that’s one thing. But if you’re humble for what it looks like, if your humble for reaction, then what are the motives of your heart? It goes back to being self-focused. So the reason I say we’re in Isaiah 6 is that it’s a time for us to let pride die, because whenever pride in our life dies, we see the Lord high and lifted up. Our eyes are opened. Our vision is restored. We can see the Lord in his glory and his splendor.
We can see heaven. We can begin to communicate and work with heaven, and heaven can work with us. But if we are full of pride, then our vision is stopped. So what the Lord is wanting to do is restore vision in this month of vision. Before you are quick to say, I’m not prideful, why don’t you say, Lord, any place of pride in me, I pray that you would begin to uproot that, that you would begin to heal it, and that you would reveal it to me, and even the things you don’t reveal, Lord, I thank you that you would just uproot them now. And pride can go.
Right now pride can go. We don’t have to wait for it, or wait until we get alone and seek the face of the Lord. He’ll continue to reveal, but right now pride has to go in our lives. Because he is a God who can do it in The Moment. We’re in The Moment. It’s not tomorrow. It’s not next week. It’s not with another generation.
I believe everyone in this room wants to go into their promise. And it’s The Moment to go in the promised land. You know, you’ve waited and you’ve waited and you’ve waited for the right time and the right season and the right people. And whenever the Lord says Go, he is saying, We’re moving. We’re going. It’s the moment and the time. It’s here. You’ve waited and you’ve waited and you’ve waited. But it’s here. It’s important. We cannot get stuck on ourselves and stuck in pride.
Where there is no vision the people perish. Pride cuts off your vision. Pride brings death to destiny and death to purpose. It leads you down a road you were never meant to go down, and all of a sudden you get to a place where you realize that at some point you lost sight of who you are. You’ve forgotten yourself.
In my life personally, there was a time where I woke up one day and did not like who I saw that I had become. Because I was angry and hard and not living righteously. And full of all these misconceptions. I wanted to change but at the same time, it took me years to realize how I even got there. As we were singing and praying this morning that the light of the Lord would shine, I pray that right now in these moments, even as the word has been spoken, that your eyes would be opened, that the light of the Lord would shine. And anywhere you’ve been asleep, that the Lord would wake you up.
A lot of times it’s hard at first to face the facts. We say there’s grace and forgiveness, but we have to confess our sin, we have to admit our sin before anything else. It’s not a bad thing to face the facts. It’s what you do with those facts. What you do with that issue that determines the outcome.
My prayer is that instead of being afraid to see some things in your life that maybe aren’t so beautiful, or to see some things that might be painful, my prayer is that you would be eyes wide open and arms wide open. Lord, show me what needs to change. And I thank you for your grace. Your grace within me to change. To make these changes.
It’s like this. If you came out of that bathroom and you had toilet paper hanging out of your pants or on your shoe or on your body, would you want nobody to say anything to you and you go out of here and go to lunch? Or would you want somebody to tell you? So let’s deal with the stuff. The Lord wants to save you from embarrassment. There is a time and time is up. The Lord has been dealing with our hearts and dealing with our words and actions.
If you don’t deal, there is going to be a reveal. And we’re in the Big Reveal. But you may not like this reveal because this one is going to leave you exposed. And it’s not going to be because somebody exposed you. Or because God exposed you or anything. It’s all going to be what you’ve done to yourself. I don’t think anyone wants anybody to see their junk and their garbage. Right? Would you rather deal with it yourself? I sure would.
I had no idea she was going to be sharing Galatians 3 this morning. It’s all about our sonship, our heirship with Christ. So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. For all of you who were baptized in Christ have clothed yourself with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male nor female. For you all are one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to his promise.
Romans 8:14-17. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves so that you live in fear again. Rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him, we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
Now if we are children then we are heirs, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings, in order that we may also share in his glory.
We’re in the Big Reveal. We’re in the Song of all Songs. That is the song of the Lord, the song coming out of the throne room in heaven that began at the beginning. That began, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God and the Word was with God. I’m talking about what spun out at the beginning. I’m talking about the sounds in heaven, the sounds in the earth. The earth groans and waits for the sons of God to be revealed. We’re in the Big Reveal. And it is that Song of all Songs.
Revelation 4. The throne in heaven. After this I looked and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this. At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.
And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had the face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.
Hebrews 12:22-29. But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth but now he has promised, Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens. The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.
That’s where we are. We’re in Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty. Worthy Worthy Worthy is the Lord who was and who is and is to come. We are in the Song of all Songs Moment. We have stepped into Time. There’s weight on that if you really take hold of it. We have stepped into Time. We have stepped into the Time in which he created us for.
Jesus’ first miracle of turning water into wine. He said to his mother, It’s not my time yet. But he honored and obeyed his mother, and in that moment he stepped into who he was. He stepped into the fullness of all he was. In that moment he became who he was in God the Father.
I say to you and your spirit this morning to step into who you are. Step into that moment. Let God hold fast to you and shake everything that can be shaken in your life. Let your eyes be opened. Let your arms and your legs be unbound. Nothing to block. Nothing to hold you back. Nothing to keep you boarded up. I pray that your heart will be open to the nudging of the Lord. Open to Holy Spirit. I pray that your eyes will see yourself. I pray that you’ll be able to face circumstances. And I pray that you will be willing to change.
Lord, I thank you for your spirit that is like a consuming fire. Come and burn in us, Jesus. Come and burn in us. Come and burn away the dross in our lives. Come and burn away the chaff in our lives. Come and burn out everything that’s not of you. We submit ourselves to you Jesus and we say, Go down deep. Go down deep to the core of our being and uproot anything that’s not of you.
Lord, we receive all that you are. And I pray right now that a spirit of adoption will go forth in this place and take hold of every man, woman, and child in this building. In that, as you go out of here, as we finish with this prayer, I pray that the Spirit of God on the inside of you will open your eyes to see, to know, to understand who you are in Christ Jesus, who you were called to be.
I pray that purpose and destiny will activate in your life right now. Where you’ve lacked vision, I pray that the Lord gives you so much vision you don’t know what to do with it until you do. Hear me out. You’ve wanted vision for so long, someone in here. It’s like, Lord what’s the vision? What’s your vision for my life? That’s been the cry in your spirit. And it’s been nothing, nothing, nothing. The vision is going to begin to come to you so fast in these next seasons that it’s going to make your head swim. And in exactly the right moment the Lord is going to show you what to do with it.
Don’t be overwhelmed but be encouraged. Anyone who has felt like their vision has been cut off, don’t be discouraged. Be encouraged because your eyes are being opened right now in this place. You can mark it down today. The Lord is going to begin to show you so many things that at first it will feel overwhelming. You will begin to move with him in a new way.
This all started because we welcomed change in this place. We welcomed what we don’t feel comfortable with. The Lord has broken us out of the cage. He has broken us out of the prison. He has made us come out of the box. And it’s not a temporary thing. It’s a permanent thing. There’s no more cage. There’s no more prison. There’s no more box. There is nothing to go back to.
Lord, I thank you that those things in our lives that are unrighteous, we burn the boats on those things today. There is no going back. There is only pressing forward. I thank you for flint-faced sons and daughters. That we will set our faces as flint.
And not only that, but Lord I thank you that we will find that intimate place with you and that we will press our faces into your chest, that we will know the beat of your heart, that we will know the rhythm of who you are. Set us at one with you. Set us in rhythm with you, Holy Spirit.
I pray for everyone in this place Lord, that you will just take hold of their hearts, that you will comfort them where they need comfort, and you will deliver them where they need deliverance. Me first. Lord, I pray this word will resonate in all of us and that you are changing us. We welcome your change. And I thank you for the stepping into destiny, the stepping into purpose and knowing that we are in a serious time. In Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you for coming today, for being in this house, for your willing hearts. You were in here for a reason. You were in here for a purpose. And I pray you’ll take hold of this word and that you’ll begin to let the Lord do the work in you.
Don’t let it be discouraging to you to see your shortcomings, but be so encouraged that the Lord wants to show you the things that need to change because he wants to bring you into such great promise. We’re in The Moment. You’re in Your Moment. Be blessed. We love you.
Betty. This is a pivotal time for us all and it’s awesome. It’s life-changing.
(It starts raining outside.)
?We have come to Mount Zion, the city of the Living God. Heavenly Jerusalem. By his blood we have come. And thousands of angels dance around his throne. And thousands more sing out new songs. Elders throw their crowns down as all of heaven sings out, Worthy is the One, the Lamb who has overcome. Resurrection love has raised us up again. He has conquered death and I will follow him.
Betty. Father, again we want to thank you for all that you have done, even the sign of the rain; now the sun is shining. Father, we revere and honor your name and thank you that the Son of Righteousness has risen with healing in his wings over the Body, and healing and wholeness comes. We bless you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ as you go. Father, we thank you that you have Reset your timing in our lives, and we step in and recognize we’re in The Moment. Yay God. Amen and Amen.
