Judah Goes First.
Anna Love. I want to start by reading Matthew 3:11. This is John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus. He says, I baptize you with water for repentance. After me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
This talks about Jesus. Jesus has come to us and he has given us the Holy Spirit. And he has given us his fire. As the Worship Team was praying this morning, what kept rising up in me was that a purification would come in the body this morning. That his fire would come in this place and burn up the chaff in our lives. I saw that we’re in a season and a time—and it’s not a long period; I think it’s a very quick window—when
the Lord is separating the chaff from the wheat.
There’s been a preparation; there’s been months and years of words coming forth about getting things in order; about putting a watch guard on our mouth; about dealing with sin in our lives. It’s like a turnaround. It’s where you choose. We’ve been in a time where you make the choice. We talked about, Choose you this day whom you will serve. I believe the Lord is really separating things right now.
And he’s making them very clear to us. You won’t choose unknowingly. Whether that’s good or bad. You can see clearly in this season and the choices that you make won’t be blind decisions. So if you act righteously, you’ll do it knowing you’re acting righteously. If you choose to act unrighteously, you will do it fully knowing you’re being unrighteous.
That might be hard, but if you’re like me, I like when things are clearcut and you know right and wrong, black and white. We’re really in a time. It’s a window. The seriousness of the window of time that we’re in will determine your entire life. No matter how old or young you are, this season, this window, is an opportunity, a moment, to either rise or fall. It’s a moment to either metamorphose or dissolve. It’s a moment where you step in fully knowing, but it’s also a moment where we have to choose.
It’s life and it’s death. It’s set before us. And he’s giving us the opportunity to choose. So this morning, Lord God, we welcome your fire in this house. We welcome your fire. Burn up anything in us that’s not of you. Lord, I thank you that just as we prayed earlier, there are no limits on you.
And Father, anything we’ve had in us that is hidden, I thank you that you’re burning it up. Any place that we’ve had secret sin I thank you that you’re burning it up. Any place in our thoughts that we’ve not given over to you, anything that we’re dwelling on, Lord, we give it up. And I thank you that you are burning it up. You are burning up anything in us that’s not of you.
Father, I thank you that you’re burning up willfulness this morning. That you’re burning up rebellion, and fear, and striving, doubt and unbelief. Father, I thank you that such a knowledge of you and your presence will fill this place this morning that our focus can’t be broken. That our sole focus is set on you. That our sights are fixed on you, Jesus, and nothing else, nothing else, nothing else can take that away. Nothing else can steal our focus.
Lord, we come back to center. We come back to our first love. I thank you that such a burning passion will be in the hearts of your sons and daughters for you, Lord. I thank you that as a bride longs for her bridegroom, that such passion will be our hearts for you, Lord. Let us be laid-down lovers. Let us be so fixed on you, Jesus, that nothing else can take that away. Nothing else can come in.
Father, I thank you that you are raising up your army. That you are raising up your righteous army who will walk in your ways. Lord, I thank you that we will be a people who will not bow their knees to Baal. That we’ll be a people who will stand up for righteousness. That we will be a people whose mouths speak forth the pure, righteous, holy words of God.
Father, I thank you that you are removing mixture this morning from your Body. Not just mixture in our words, Lord, because we can say the right things but harbor in our hearts things that are not of you. I thank you there will be no mixture inwardly or outwardly. No mixture in our mindsets. No mixture in our thought processes.
Lord, I thank you that you are coming in and it is that refining fire. That your winnowing fork is coming and it’s separating out those things. We choose you, Jesus. We choose your will. We choose your way. We choose your purpose. Lord, I thank you for the fullness of purpose for each individual in this place and each individual watching.
I thank you that there will be no forfeiting of purpose. No forfeiting of destiny. No forfeiting of your very best. Lord, I thank you for the fullness of your promise, the fullness of your purpose, the fullness you have for each of us individually and corporately.
I was hearing this since Thursday, confirmed by a few other people, not to forfeit the promise, or your call, or your destiny. Sometimes when you’ve waited so long for something, and something comes along and it looks like maybe you could fit it into that. Or, I’ve waited so long for this, well this looks all right. But the Lord says the fullness of promise, the fullness of what you’ve waited for is coming. And don’t forfeit it.
Don’t forfeit it by stepping into an old cycle. Don’t forfeit it by doing what you’ve done in the past. Because if you do what you’ve always done you’ll have what you’ve always had. The Lord is not giving us leftover bread. He’s giving us fresh manna for a fresh season. And I believe it is a promise now. So my cry and what you see this morning is that it’s so serious, because it’s right before us.
I had an opportunity to step into an old cycle. Nothing bad. Everything on the outside looked good. But I saw how over the years, whenever I get to the point of breakthrough, whenever it gets to the point of about to go forward, this old distraction comes in. And it’s the same old song and dance. Instead of being afraid. Instead of thinking, Oh no; what if I do this again? Instead of any kinds of thoughts, it made me feel excited because I saw it as not just that old cycle, but I saw it knowing that I’m not going that way. I’ve been down that road and I’m not going down that road again.
I think there are a lot of roads we’ve been down, some not necessarily bad or sinful ways, but they’re roads we know are not part of our call. We know they’re roads that aren’t part of our destiny. We’ve been down those roads and we know them well.
The Lord is saying it’s time. We’re stepping into His Way and leaving our old roads behind.
So, Lord, I thank you that this morning that you’re putting a divine sense of direction and purpose and vision in each one of us, and that you’re holding our feet to your paths of righteousness. Lord, I thank you that you’ve captured our hearts, and any place where our hearts need to be captured by you again, I thank you that you are so engulfing us in your presence this morning that it’s like falling in love all over again.
Lord, I pray that the love and passion we have for you will burn in us like never before to where nothing can move us, nothing can shake us, nothing can get us off of you. But we know without a shadow of a doubt that your words are true.
We honor you in this place this morning. We lift your name up, Jesus, the Author, the Perfecter of our faith. We exalt your name. We exalt your place, Lord. We make much of who you are. We make much of your glory. And once again I say, Here we are, Lord, ready to do your will, what is written about us in the scroll. Have your way this morning. Have your way in each of us. Have your way in this corporate body.
I thank you that it can’t be contained to just this building. I thank you that it goes out such a strong sense of your presence and it begins to capture the hearts of a city, that it begins to capture the hearts of a state, that it begins to capture the hearts of a nation and the nations.
I thank you that we are stepping into your revolution. That we’re stepping into your awakening, your revival, your outpouring, whatever you want to call it, Lord, I thank you that we are stepping into a way, and we are going into The Way that we’ve never been before, Lord. I thank you that you accomplish this in Jesus name. Amen.
?We exalt you. Holy is the Lord. You are the one who we love. You are worthy. We see your faithfulness. Your mercy without end. We honor his name. You’re worthy worthy.
We welcome our King in our midst—Jesus. He’s enthroned on our praise. Nothing’s gonna stop our praise. Lift your head up. Be strong in the strength of the Lord. Lift your hands up and move along.
Laurie Myrick. In the midst of our praise and worship, the high praise and the glory; first of all I saw bellows. Webster’s defines bellows as an instrument or machine that by alternate expansion and contraction draws in air through a valve or orifice and expels it out.
So when the glory comes down and we breathe him in, then when we squeeze the bellows, we breathe out praise and worship, and others are brought back to life. Like on the dry bones in Ezekiel when we breathe his love, and fresh wind and fire upon others, they can come out of that dessert place that they’re in.
And today I decree and declare that those who come in today, that the bellows that are in this place, they will breathe in Jesus and breathe out Jesus when they leave, in Jesus name.
Nita Maselle. I kept hearing that his greatness is his love. His greatness is his love. How great is his love? How he wants to lavish his love on us. And how he wants us to be his expression of his love to others. I believe what he’s bellowing out is his love. And that’s his greatness.
?We receive your love. It’s who you are God.
Anna Love. As Laurie released her word, I could see the Lord and it was like he was reaching into our bellies. It was like there was a fire in our bellies. And he grabbed hold of us and put his face in front of our stomachs and he began to blow, like you see someone blow on embers and rekindle the fire, or blow and keep the flame alive. I saw the Lord pulling us close and breathing his life breath onto the fire within us, into our inmost being.
Lord, we receive your fire. We receive that passion, Lord. We receive your love, because without your love we have nothing. Without your love we don’t have you, Lord. I thank you that we’ll have a greater understanding of your love. We receive what you’re doing. We say, Breathe your breath of live on us. Let your wind blow.
I don’t think it’s by accident that for the last two weeks we’ve been talking about wind, and welcoming his wind and his breath. And then for the word this morning to be his fire. The wind and the fire go together. Sometimes you look at the wind and think the wind can put out the fire, but No! I tell you today the wind is spreading the fire.
Lord, I thank you that there’s a fire that’s starting in your people, that’s starting in your remnant, that’s starting in your Body. I thank you for those burning ones, Lord. I thank you for the wind of your Spirit and the wind of your presence, that doesn’t just keep fanning into flame, but it spreads out like wildfire. That it can’t be contained. That it can’t be limited.
Lord, I thank you for a greater measure, a greater expression of who you are in our natural realm, Lord.
?We say, Have your way. Come and blow on the embers in our bellies. Fan into flame what you’re doing today. Let that be your declaration. Oh we receive it. Swing wide the door to my soul, the door to my heart. Have your way, Jesus.
Anna Love. I’ve been asking the Lord what we were to transition to because I felt it was time to shift. He said we’re staying in this place, that the shift is coming by the words of our mouth. Our words are so important. There’s a cry coming out this morning that’s lifting up his name but it’s also saying, Have your way. God, fan into flame, blow on the embers of my belly, my inmost being.
I believe as I was feeling it was time to transition, the Lord is saying, No, because there’s a breakout coming at this moment. But these words we’re singing are not many words, but they are few words, and they’re words you can sing and you can say. I believe this morning a birthing is going to come out of our praise, a birthing is coming out of our declaration.
Any place you’ve felt stuck, or hindered, or trapped, the Lord is going to break you out of that today. We’re going to do it by just singing, Have your way.
?Have your way, oh Jesus…We’re breaking out today.
Anna. I want you to close your eyes. I believe in these moments we’re waiting to hear from the Lord. We’re waiting for the answers to the question. There’s a drive in us. We want the answer to the question. The whole drive for our life is the answer to the question. And we have the answer. The answer is Jesus. But each one of us is waiting on the Lord, waiting to hear his voice, waiting to know what to do.
So at this moment, we’re going to be quiet with our words and we’re going to let the Lord of heaven and earth speak to us. He’s going to speak to you, literally. He’s going to speak to you tenderly. We’re in a season where he’s going to speak tenderly because we’ve turned our hearts, we’ve yielded our hearts. For the next few minutes just listen. And you can do it without striving. You can do it without thinking, I have to get a word. Just let the Lord in is sovereignty and his fullness speak to you.
This morning in this place I believe that the Lord is building us up in our faith. I believe it’s no accident that the words, Only Believe, Just Believe, have come out the last several weeks. For me personally, and many of you, we are believing God for something. But doubt will want to come in, or the fear of ‘what if’ will want to come in. Or, is this really going to happen, tries to come in. All these things, and all these voices, and all this stirring, and pulling, and tugging, but the Lord is saying, Only Believe.
I shared this with my Dad on the way home after church on Wednesday night. It’s come up in me over and over again, that the foundation of our faith is on believing. The way we receive Jesus, the way we receive salvation, is by believing. Whenever we ask Jesus to come into our heart and we believe that he died for our sins and that he rose again. We have the certainty of that. Everyone in here is secure in that, secure in your salvation.
It’s interesting if you think about it. What is the biggest thing we deal with in the body of Christ? Doubt and unbelief. Because the enemy knows we’re secure in our salvation. So what does he do? He tries to hit us with doubt and unbelief over everything else; over our lives, over our purpose, over our calling, over our family, over our jobs, over our finances, whatever it is. He wants us to get in doubt and unbelief, worry, fear and discouragement, and get stuck down in the depths.
But I have news for you today. The Lord has come. He come to us individually to put his face into our bellies and breathe his life. Breathe his life into us, rekindling that flame. But it’s also breathing life into those dead places. It’s breathing life into our bodies where the very life-breath of God is flowing through us. So anything that’s not of him has to go out.
As Laurie was sharing breathing him in and breathing him out, I was seeing that when his breath went in us, it came up out of us and anything that didn’t need to be in us just went out. It had no effect on us. It was just no more. I believe that faith is increasing this morning. Because I want you to take hold of belief like nothing can get you off of it.
If we believe the word of God, if we believe what he says, then we should have absolutely no doubts. Because our confident assurance is in Jesus Christ and whenever we hold to him because of the steadfastness of who he is, then nothing can shake us. In this hour I believe there is such an awakening coming to the Body that we are understanding faith like never before. We’re understanding our authority in Christ to grab hold of that faith and know who we are in him where nothing can move us.
Shelly, I don’t have to tell you your name is Shelly or try to convince you of your name. You know it. There’s no doubt. That’s how sure we can be of our faith and in the promises of God, and nothing, no matter what, it’s just how it is.
I hope that encourages you. This was stirring in my spirit and I believe this is what the Lord is doing this morning, what he started in the prayer circle with the Worship Team, and what he’s just going to continue to do this morning.
Psalm 86 TPT. Lord, bend down to listen to my prayer. I am in deep trouble. I’m broken and humbled, and I desperately need your help.
Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Guard my life, for I’m your faithful friend, your loyal servant for life. I turn to you in faith, my God, my hero; come and rescue me!
The Lord is rescuing us. He is breaking open the way. He is pulling us out of the pit. Wherever you felt trapped, wherever you felt stuck; for some of us even in the purpose of our life. Why am I here? Maybe that’s been the cry this week or even this morning. What is my purpose? God, why am I here? He is answering the questions this morning; the questions we are asking, he is answering.
Lord God, hear my constant cry for help; show me your favor and bring me to your fountain of grace!
Restore joy to your loving servant once again, for all I am is yours, O God. Lord, you are so good to me, so kind in every way and ready to forgive, for your grace-fountain keeps overflowing, drenching all your lovers who pray to you.
This is what we’ve been doing this morning. His grace, his love, is coming and drenching us in his presence.
:6 God, won’t you pay attention to this urgent cry? Lord, bend down to listen to my prayer. Whenever trouble strikes, I will keep crying out to you, for I know your help is on the way.
Help is on the way this morning. Help is here in this place today.
God, there’s no one like you; there’s no other god as famous as you. You outshine all others and your miracles make it easy to know you.
Lord Almighty, you are the one who created all the nations. Look at them—they’re all on their way! Yes, the day will come when they all will worship you and put your glory on display. You are the one and only God. What miracles! What wonders! What greatness belongs to you!
Here we are.
:11 Teach me more about you, how you work and how you move, so that I can walk onward in your truth until everything within me brings honor to your name.
With all my heart and passion I will thank you, my God! I will give glory to your name, always and forever! You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me. You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death.
God, look at how these arrogant ones have defied me. Like a vicious band of violent men they have tried to kill me. They wouldn’t worry for a moment that they were sinning against you! But Lord your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry yet so swift to show your faithful love. You are full of abounding grace and truth.
Bring me to your grace-fountain so that your strength becomes mine. Be my hero and come rescue your servant once again!
Send me a miraculous sign to show me how much you love me, so that those who hate me will see it and be ashamed. Don’t they know that you, Lord, are my comforter, the one who comes to help me?
Because the Lord says it, we can believe it.
?Oh I believe it. We believe it because you said it, God. I receive it by faith right now.
Anna. We’re responding to what he’s doing. I think a lot of times we come in here ready to respond, to participate. But then other times we come in here worn out and tired. We just want to be filled up in his presence and enter into the worship, and not have to do anything. I believe this morning the Lord is making it interactive.
I’ve felt not so good before and just wanted to sit and not do anything, and I just felt worse. But sometimes when you get up and press through and do something uncomfortable, that’s when a breakthrough comes. That’s when a shift comes. So before we transition, let’s just say one more time, I believe it.
?I believe it. Yes we do.
Anna. Lord, I thank you for what you’ve done this morning, what you’ve done on our worship, what you’ve done on our praise. I thank you that this is just the beginning. This is just the beginning of what you have for us this day. Lord, we receive it. We acknowledge what you’re doing. We make much of your presence in this house. We make much of your glory. We make much of who you are, your person, Jesus. Holy Spirit, this is your house. Jesus, you are the Apostle of this house and we honor you. Thank you, Lord.
Betty Love ?We worship you, God Almighty. Undivided hearts. Undivided hearts. Undivided hearts we bring to you, Lord. We agree. We’re transitioning. We’re moving. We’re not stopping now, Lord. We’re moving, navigating the narrow place. Coming out, coming out, coming through today. Coming through into our birthrights and our destinies. Giving birth in this season. Oh we acknowledge you. Oh we raise our gaze. Oh breath of God. Come and breathe. Come and blow. Resurrection power and life. Coming from the inside out. Today in every heart, in every son of God. Don’t give up. Don’t let go.
“I’m no gonna let you go’” says the Lord your God. “I didn’t bring you this far to take you back again. There’s no turnaround place in the canal. There’s no turnaround place in the birthing canal. You gotta come out. You gotta come forth. I’m drawing you out. I’m pulling you out.” Hei Hei Hei.
You’re either going to come willingly or he’s going to get the Holy Ghost forceps and he’s going to bring you out of that place.
“You are my intention. You are my intended. I won’t let go. You are my intended. You are my beloved,” says the Lord Jesus Christ. “Making intercession for you. Making intercession for you. I made a way. I have made the way. And the pilot light is on. And the Pilot’s in the Wheelhouse today. The Pilot’s in the Wheelhouse today.”
He’s turning on the stage lights. He’s turning the stage lights. He’s turning on the spotlight. His light and his glory is raining out, radiating out today. ?Come out of hiding, you’re safe here with me. Come out of hiding, you’re safe here with me. Step into the light. Step into the light, oh sons of God. Come out of hiding. Come out of hiding.
Congregation/Lane?There’s no need to cover what I already see. You’ve got your reasons but I hold your peace. You’ve been on lockdown but I hold the key. ‘Cause I loved you before you knew what was love. I saw it all, still I chose the cross. You were the one that I was thinking of when I rose from the grave. Now rid of the shackles, my victory is yours. I tore the veil for you to come close. There’s no reason to stand at a distance anymore. You’re not far from home.
Anna?He says, Welcome home. Welcome home, little ones. I’ve been waiting. I’ve been watching for you to come. He says, welcome home, welcome home, little ones. I’ve been waiting and I’ve been watching for you. But now I see you coming. Oh now I see you coming on. You’re coming on my way. You’re coming on my truth. You’re coming on my path I’ve laid out for you. Because the paths I have for you lead to me every time. So welcome home. Welcome home. You’ve found the place where you belong. You’ve found the place where you belong and it’s home with me. Welcome home. Welcome home.
As we’ve sung this, and as I heard the Father say, Welcome home, I could see the prodigal coming home. I could see him in the distance, coming down the road, and the father running out to meet him. That’s a picture of how God is with us this morning. I believe we’re in a real coming-home place.
I remember further into the story, into the happening, what did the father do? He got the fattened calf. He got the robe. He got the ring. And he prepared a celebration, because the son that once was dead is alive again. I believe just as she was singing about the lights coming on and step out into the light, and just as we’re talking about, it’s a great reveal. We’re coming into a revealing time.
I believe the Lord has prepared a place for us and we’re traveling down the road. And we’ve come home this morning. Those places that needed to come home in our lives. Those places that were dead, that needed to come back to life. Those places that needed to die, that needed to have no hold on us anymore. I believe that we’ve met face to face with the Father.
And just as I saw the Lord blowing within us, that that righteous flame, that pure flame, that flame of destiny, that flame of promise, that flame of purpose, that flame of our calling, that flame of Holy Spirit within us is awakening and it’s building and it’s burning and it’s getting hotter. I believe we’re stepping into the celebration. We’re stepping into this feast the Lord has prepared for us. We’ve come to the table this morning. We’ve come home this morning. We’ve come to celebrate. We’ve come to celebrate our life in Christ.
I believe this morning things are awakening in us. We had to come home for it to happen. Thank you, Lord. We decree and declare that we’ve come home this morning. That we’ve come home this morning. I thank you that you’ve tuned our ears, that you’ve set our eyes to see, to know and hear you, Lord. Thank you that our focus can’t be taken, can’t be stolen, can’t be thwarted, but our sole focus is you, Lord.
We fix our eyes on you, and we step into the place that we belong. We take our position. We take our position with you, Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit. We take our position in this celebration. We take our position at the table of the Lord. We decree and declare it so in Jesus name.
Betty Love. He says today, not ‘if’ but ‘when,’ and as you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. He has come home in us to a place of abiding in us. But also a place of you transitioning in to abide in him. Revival, awakening, transformation, and reformation is upon us. And it’s personal this morning. It’s personal. We’re stepping into his glory light. He is filling his house with light and glory. And anything that has been hidden is going to be exposed by that light. But not to bring shame; not to uncover; but to cause you to discover who God is and who you are. Who God is and who we are. And in the light, those things that are exposed are going to be removed; they’re going to be eradicated by the light and the glory.
The Lord says if you will allow his light, his lamp, to search you out, the things that have been root causes in our lives, that have grabbed our bloodlines, he is going to the core, the very root of our beings, even to the point of conception, to bring deliverance, to bring healing, to bring transformation and metamorphosis in us today.
The Word of God says in Romans 12, In view of God’s mercy, that we present our members unto God a living sacrifice. He has come today to inhabit and consume the living sacrifice with his fire. To set you ablaze. To kindle and rekindle in some, a passion that you have not known before or experienced heretofore.
Deliverance is here today. Vision is here today. Refreshing and Renewal is here today in our Father’s house. In our Father’s house are many rooms. He is going to take you into the places in the heavenly realm, in his house, and open your eyes to the vision and the destiny and the purpose that he ordained for you before the foundations of the earth.
And you’re not looking afar off. The Lord says it’s within your view. It’s upon the horizon—your breakthrough. You’re coming into your birthing. The provision for your vision. Don’t let go. Don’t follow man’s system or man’s way. Allow me to separate you unto myself in this hour, says the Lord. For the enemy has put many trap-sets out there, but I am springing those traps. I’m revealing them for what they are. Indeed you will walk in a place of wisdom you’ve not known heretofore.
And you will see with your eyes and you will hear with your ears, and understand in your hearts like never before. This is not a time for you to be away from me. This is not a time for you to be adrift. This is a time for you to come in. This is a time for you to allow me to do the deep abiding work. I call it an abiding works, says the Lord, because the work that I am doing in this season, even in these days, in this now period, it is an abiding work; it is an eternal work; it is a lasting work.
It is a place even as I said to Israel, The Egyptians you see today you will see no more. Some of you are in the final place, in the final showdown with the enemy in that area in your life. As a state, even as a nation, I am breaking the spirit of poverty. I’m breaking the spirit of religion and removing religious structures off of your life. I’m removing ungodly structures that have been set by generations past, and I’m bringing you into the now of heaven.
This is an on-time delivery, says the Lord your God. I’m bringing you into a cycle of blessing. I’m bringing you into original intent. Who is like our God? Who can thwart the plan of Almighty God?
Change is in our midst today. The Lord comes again and again and again and again and again with the word in the hopes and desires that no daughter, no son of God will miss the invitation, so he comes again and again and again, and he has come again today to say to you and me, Will we embrace the change? Will we let go of our pet peeves? Will we let go of our pet projects?
Will we let go of the sin we have petted and become familiar with? It’s just a familiar thing. The Lord says, It’s not familiar to me. So the Lord is going to deal with the familiar things in our lives, even generationally. And he’s not going to deal with it tomorrow. He’s here to deal with it today. So there is an uprooting and a tearing down, a destroying, and a completely overthrowing of what the enemy has planted in our lives. Every ungodly structure.
I hear say, “In one fail swoop I will deal with those destiny thieves and devourers in your life. I’m bringing you up to a higher place to my vantage point where you can get a new view.”
So in view of God’s mercy, we’re going to present our members unto God a living sacrifice this morning. And I pray that scripture will go beyond what it has in the past. That is will get beyond the familiar, that it will come alive in you.
The fear of the Lord came in this place when Nita delivered the word. And the fear of the Lord is going to grab hold of us in such a way to help us stay in the lane. I want to do two things.
Psalm 86:11 NIV. Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
Today is about the wall of division coming down that has been between his heart and our hearts. And he is going to give you and me an undivided heart so we can walk, move. This is onward, Christian soldiers.
In Jeremiah 1, he told Jeremiah, I have given you authority—the words that I have put in your mouth to uproot, tear down, destroy, and overthrow. We are at a precursor season, getting ready to enter into 5780. And when you enter into that place, the words of your mouth are going to have a power like they’ve never had before to create. And it’s going to be a quick return on the word that comes out of your mouth.
So the Lord has been dealing with us since 2017—strong, hard words. People even left Miracle City when the prophet and I began to talk about dealing with issues and stuff, and the word that came out was, I don’t want to get beat up. I went back and listened to the Armed and Dangerous teaching. If you are not willing to listen to what God is saying in this season—when I say ‘you’ it’s ‘me first.’ He is bringing a new order. He is bringing correction. He is bringing deliverance. He’s bringing his glory and his goodness.
The teachings and what he’s releasing is to prepare us so we can do the stuff. I want to do the stuff. We’ve been hearing it, believing it, having glimpses of it, tasting a little bit here and there for years and years and years. But I believe what God is about to set in motion is going to be like a steamroller rolling over the enemy.
It’s a place where we stand as the generals in the past, and somebody’s laying dead, and we won’t take death for an answer. Stand them up and command them to live in the name of Jesus. Or like Smith Wigglesworth’s wife said, Quit raising me from the dead. This is it. I’m ready to go. Don’t call me back again. That’s some power. It could happen. Angels in the outfield.
We’re standing in the season of the goodness of God, the month of his goodness. And his goodness brings us to repentance. In the place of the goodness, the enemy is so trying to grab your bloodline and bring the things of old to get you and me in the old cycles. And it might not be blatant sin. It might not be addiction, perversion, or whatever, but it very well could be. For some, it is. He is so bombarding the mind.
Anna. A lot of times old cycles in our life start out innocently. It’s not sin and there’s not anything wrong with it. But it’s important that we see the triggers for old cycles, what opens the door that leads to sin.
Betty. This is what he’s saying to us. I’m going to bring you up into the high place, the seated place with me, and I’m going to allow you to see your enemy. I’m going to allow you to see a path I’ve marked out for you and I’m going to show you trap-sets and the strategy of the enemy. But I’m going to show you my strategy. And I’m going to allow you to walk it out, run it out, or just fly right over it. Dottie said that sounds real good. The Overcomer’s Anointing has come to the house of God.
God never meant us to live in poverty. Hear what I’m saying. That doesn’t mean we won’t have circumstances and situations. But there is always an end to a wilderness. And even in the wilderness there is a reaping and a harvest. There is a new mindset that God is bringing.
We are all sitting here full of promises and victory. Our question is not how. The enemy, self, circumstances, even enquiring minds want to know how. Our answer is WHO. WHO. And whose we are. Because we know the Who, the how will come.
Psalm 86:11 MSG. Train me, God, to walk straight and I’ll follow your true path. That’s what Tammuz was about. It was about staying on path. You guys in here hear me say when you’re coming to prophesy, Stay on the path. Stay in the lane. This is what I’m saying: Don’t come up here and give a sermon when you’re giving a word. We’ve got a flow going on. We’re moving. The river’s moving.
Picture a river moving. Anybody ever been on a river float, canoeing, white water rafting? The river of God, God is constantly moving. So when you come to bring a word or a song or the written Word to release in that moment, your portion is to give just what he said or to give the vision.
When you start giving, Well last week so and so and so and so…. What you have just done is you have grabbed aside and we’ve stopped or gone up into a jetty. I don’t want to go up there. That’s not to say God can’t ever do that. But when you hear me say, Stay in your lane, I’m saying, Stay on the path; let him carry you here; give what he put in your mouth. And not that we’re trying to control or hinder. I just want to be in what he’s doing and keep going. Because I want everything he wants to do in the time that we’re together.
Put me together, one heart and mind. He is wanting to bring into alignment our entire spirit, soul, and body so that we are one with him in heart and mind. And our natural mind and the carnal is not trumping the spirit. He wants us to live spirit, soul, body, one in him—not body, soul, spirit. We are spirit beings in a body with a soul. So he’s saying, Train me, God, to walk straight and I’ll follow your true path. Put me together, one heart and mind, then undivided.
What is this business about being undivided? It means to be double-minded. I’m standing today speaking to us as a house, as a people. You cannot have one foot in the world and one foot in God. Because what is happening in this season is that it is getting further and further apart. You’re going to get in one boat or the other.
Then undivided I’ll worship you in joyful fear, in awe. Because you’re all that. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, dear Lord.
I’m so excited. I can guarantee you that I know that I know that I know that the Lord is about to do a generational cleansing for you in here today. I can tell you I know that. I need it.
Romans 12:1 TPT. Beloved friends, what should be our response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God, to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And to live in holiness, experiencing all the delights of his heart.
This message right here: he wants us to live in holiness, experiencing all the delights of his heart.
Prophetically where we are, the season that we’re in, is the Father’s month, his will, his desire. So what he wants to do is reveal his heart to us. He wants us to draw near to hear him. Not only does he want us to hear him, but when he releases the word, the vision, his heart, his mind and counsel to you, he wants you to open up your mouth and declare it in the earth realm.
It’s going to be for you personally, and I believe anything that God does in your life is not just for you. It’s going to affect the corporate body of Christ. So he wants us to live in holiness, separated unto him. I’m not talking about religion, because people equate holiness with dullness and boredom and legalism; and you can’t breathe or move.
I think God likes for you to go fishing. I think he likes it when you recreate. I think he likes when the hunter goes to hunt, and they sit out on that stand or in the duck blind early in the morning. I think it’s their time with God.
Or when a musician sits at the keyboard, or picks up the guitar, and nobody else is there except the Lord. Not necessarily that they’re singing a God song, but they’re singing a song. I think the Lord likes when an artist picks up a paintbrush. They’re not painting to make money. They’re just painting; they want to create.
I think there are activities that God loves, when the gardener goes out. Wanda can tell you this. She has been one of my best dear friends for 30 years now. She always makes sure, What do you want to do for your birthday? And I’ve told her many times, I want plants and I want to dig in the dirt.
So this year for my birthday she gave me money to invest in my yard. I’m just spotlighting! So what does she know I like to do on my birthday? Dig in the dirt. If I’m where I can, I’m out there. And do you know who is out there when I’m watering the yard, talking to me? The Lord. Stop being religious and be relational.
I’ve been with Kimble since I was 15 years old and I’m 58. I know him and he knows me. I’m not talking about not talking, but there is a companionable silence between us. It the same thing with Anna and me. I have that with Nita. Nita has traveled a lot on the road with us. We will chat it up and then there’s a time to be quiet, for all of us.
You can be with God in his presence and know that his presence is there, just with you as you go along, and you don’t have to be chatting him up. It is a new day. Relational. Because it’s only out of relationship, out of knowing him and loving him that you will ever live life in him, you’ll ever make a change. And that’s the truth. You can beat people into submission all day long, but that only lasts until you’re not looking. It’s just the truth.
The choice is here and the Lord is ready for us to experience the delights of his heart. He’s something else, now. He created all this out here. Don’t think science is bad because he’s the greatest scientist I’ve ever known. He put it all together. He invented science. Science has a place because of what he’s done, to try to figure it out and put language to it—all things.
Romans 12:1-2 TPT. Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred living sacrifices and to live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship. What? When you experience the delights of his heart and you begin to worship him. The more you know him, the more you will lay down your life.
Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think.
I didn’t know it read this way. It’s been a while since I read this translation. This morning, he is reviving, awakening, transforming, reforming.
This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes. There it is.
Father, I just thank you for every person, every heart, every son of God, every family represented in this room and everyone watching. I thank you, Lord, that you are doing a work from the inside of us that man can’t bring about. And we couldn’t bring about on our best day.
We are standing before you this morning acknowledging what you have released in word, in sound, in song, through your Logos, your rhema, your proceeding and prophetic word for us today.
And we are presenting our members a living sacrifice unto you so that we can be transformed, reformed in our thinking. So that we can come into the fullness of all that you have ordained for us on earth as it is in heaven. That we be transformed, transfigured by your glory and your goodness. That we come into a place of intimacy in relationship with you. And fellowship with you. An expectancy with you that we’ve not ever known, Lord.
In this fullness of time, Lord, you have gathered us unto yourself, Father, so that we would come forth in your will and what is written about us in our prophetic books. I thank you that the Revelator is here today. That your voice is upon our waters and your voice is in our ear, and you are instructing and constructing and correcting and rebuking and releasing personally to every life and to every heart in this room, so that we can walk thoroughly equipped, worthy of the calling, fulfilling our destiny, finishing the race and finishing well.
I thank you for the Reset. Whoa! Whoa! I thank you for the operation that is taking place today. I saw earlier this morning that childhood Operation Game. You know you’ve got to remove something out of the little slot, do surgery with those tweezers. But if they touch the side of the opening the buzzer goes off. The nose lights up and the sound goes off.
The Lord is going to do surgery on you and me today. There is not going to be a buzzer going off. Because he’s going to go in and do the work and it’s going to be a clean surgery.
So Father, thank you for your fire. Thank you for your breath. Thank you for your wind. Thank you for what you’re doing with us today. We have come home in your house. And your glory and your presence is here. So we honor you. And we receive it in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?Come on and bless the Lord. Come on and bless him. Come on and praise his name. Give him the highest praise. For the Lord delights in showing mercy. Worship is my warfare. My praise is a weapon. There is no other name than Jesus’ name.
Kimble Love. Praise the Lord and good morning. Welcome to Miracle City Global where Jesus is Lord. He is moving mightily in our midst. You’re at the right place at the right time and you’re about to receive a new anointing this morning. Because he has called us out of darkness into his marvelous light. He is going to be transitioning us from the place we’ve been into the place he’s taking us today.
I heard the Lord say this morning, His breakthrough is upon you. His breakthrough is upon you, upon us. It’s time to believe. We are in the time of manifestation of his promises. Glory to God.
He says in Isaiah 54 that no weapon formed against us will prosper. And we refute every tongue that would rise to accuse us in the name of Jesus. The wind of his Spirit, the breath of his billows, is blowing to fan into flame that which has been smothered out. If you have felt like you’ve been smothered, and you haven’t been able to be as vibrant as God has called you to be, then the breath of his billows is blowing across and blowing away the ash so that the flame can flame once again. He is making you into his purpose in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
It is so good to be in the house. God is moving mightily. He is bringing forth true purpose and he is removing all distractions. All static has to go in the name of Jesus. We are a free flowing house. We’re coming out of the mud and we’re getting into the fullness of his river.
So Father, we thank you today that you are moving mightily in our midst. We submit to your lordship, to your authority. Father, we humbly lay down our lives to the process that you are bringing us through. Lord, you said that your breakthrough was upon us. And I declare today that we receive the fullness of your word. May it manifest in our midst. May we go forth as your sons and daughters declaring your praises and displaying your glory wherever we go.
Father, we honor you today with our worship. As we enter back into worship, dear Lord, we ask that you come and have your way. Allow the breath of your billows to blow across us. Blow within us. Blow away the ash so that we can be those flaming fires that you’ve called us to be.
Father, no more hope deferred; but we thank you for the manifestation of vision and of dreams and of promises. We honor you today with our lives and we say, Have your way, Lord, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
?We’re not lost, we’re just looking for You. If you’re looking for a city, if you’re searching for a people, we’re available. We’re not making a show. We’re just making room. We volunteer to be the place you pour yourself out. To be carriers of your glory. Make this the time, make this the place, make us your people. This is the time, this is the place, we are your people. Here we are God.
Anna. We’re breaking out of the normal. Here we are.
We’re not lost, we’re just looking for You. We’re available.
?We receive your deliverance this morning. He’s setting captives free. We call out to dry bones, to dead hearts. Come alive. Come alive. Show the world You alone can save. So breathe, oh breath of God.
Betty. Come alive. We speak to the sons of God. Come alive.
Let your fire fall and cast out all my fear. Let your fire fall. Your love is all I feel. Fear, he is a liar. He will take your breath. Cast your fear in the fire.
Lane. Right here and now, it’s time for fear to go. Let your fire fall and cast out all my fear. Let your fire fall. Your love is all I feel.
Kimble Love. The Word of God says that he has not given us a spirit of fear. But he’s given us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. We are not moved by the things that we see and the things that we hear in this world in which we live in. But we stand on the truth and the power of God; the anointing of the Holy Spirit that he’s placed upon us and within us; and the position and sonship that he’s called us to walk in; and we overcome all the tactics of the enemy.
Again, no weapon forged against us prospers. In Isaiah 54, the Lord said, I created the blacksmith to fan into flame the forge so that weapons could be formed and fashioned for us to use against the enemy. It goes on to say he even created the destroyer. But the next verse says that no weapon, no tactic, no scheme of the enemy will affect us. Because he has given us power to overcome all the works of the enemy. It’s in the name and by the blood of Jesus. Glory to God. The Word of God causes us to overcome. So don’t get moved by the things of this world. But be empowered and equipped with the Spirit of power, love, and a sound mind that Father has bestowed upon us.
Tithes and Offerings. Table of the Lord.
As we continue to worship this morning, we’re going to come and bring our tithes, offerings, and first fruits in the house, to advance the kingdom, to invest in the kingdom on the earth, and to see his glory move in mighty ways.
We also come and partake of the table of the Lord. We take of the cup and of the bread—the body and the blood of Jesus. Just as Jesus met with his disciples at the last supper, after the meal he took bread and he broke it and said, This bread is my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me. Then he took the cup and blessed it and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood for all who believe. Do you believe? Yes. Amen. It will be for all generations who believe.
So in keeping with the commands of the Word of God, the covenant that Jesus has give us, we’re going to come to the table and partake of the bread and of the cup. As we do that, we remember all that Jesus did for us. He came. He lived. He died. He was resurrected. And he sits at the right hand of God making intercession for us, his people.
So as we take these elements into our bodies, the bread and the juice, we’re taking the very spiritual DNA, I believe, of Jesus into our bodies and saying, Yes, to the fullness of the New Covenant promises and blessings. We’re saying Yes to the work of the cross. We’re saying Yes to his broken body. We’re saying Yes to his blood poured out. Through the name of Jesus we have power, salvation, deliverance, and healing, all that we’ll need for life and godliness in this earth.
So Lord, today we come and we sow that which you have so blessed us with, into your kingdom treasury, to advance—not this ministry—but to advance your kingdom throughout this earth, beginning with this house and in this place.
And Lord, we remember the sacrifice of Jesus. We thank you that you came in the flesh and became man and took on our weaknesses, but without sin. And through the laying down of your life, the price that you paid, you redeemed us back to yourself. We’re now in right relationship and right standing through the broken body and blood of Jesus. And we come to this table this morning in remembrance, and in celebration, and in thankful gratitude for the work that you did for us, Jesus. You did what we couldn’t do and we give you praise and glory for it. Amen and Amen.
?Oh we make the exchange. I see new life springing up from the ground that looked dead. We call out to dry bones and dead hearts. Come alive. Come alive.
Anna. I will dream your dreams and I will walk in your ways. I incline my ear to hear your voice. So I will be still and know what you want.
So awaken, awaken, awaken, awaken. The night is over and morning has come. It’s time to live our dreams. Open your eyes, you sleepy head, and look again. Look and look again. You’re almost home now. Please don’t quit now. You’re almost home to me.
Lane. Come to me my son, my daughter, my child. With one heart and one mind. I have everything you need. I will give you rest. I have everything you’ve ever needed.
Anna Love. I hear the Lord saying that Supply has come. Supply has come. That he is supplying us with all we have need of. First of all, it’s himself. I see the Lord laying himself on top of us. Just bear with me. I see him laying himself on top of dead dreams, on lost visions, on hope deferred places, disappointed places in us. He’s bringing them back to life. Resurrection power and life is here this morning. All we have to do is believe.
?Oh we believe that you have come. That you have come to bring life. We believe it.
Kimberley Davis. ?Breath of God blow. Blow on our dreams Giver of life. Blow on your dreams for us. Your dreams. Breath of God blow. Breath of God blow.
?Breath of God blow. Here we are. Here I am, ready to do your will.
Anna Love. I hear the Lord saying, Just position yourself. Here I am, Lord, ready to do your will. If you haven’t felt qualified, if you haven’t felt good enough, if you’ve felt stuck because of past decisions, past mistakes, the Lord is saying, All it takes is your heart. All it takes is an attitude in your heart to just say, Here I am to do your will. It’s about the place we position ourselves in. It’s not what we look like or we sound like. It’s not about yesterday, but it’s in this moment with the Lord that our hearts are turning, when we say, Here I am, ready to do your will. Every voice.
?Here I am, ready to do your will….
Betty Love. Here I am, Lord. Here I am, Lord. No Delay. No Delay. No Delay. We’re not going to hold back. You’re not disqualified.
How much more will the blood of Jesus cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death that we may serve the living God? If you feel unworthy. If you feel disqualified, the Lord says, This is your opportunity. This is your time. It’s time to deal with those things. The Lord is going to the very core, to the very root, to remove what has held you down, held you back, made you feel disqualified.
So Father, I thank you that you have set our course this morning. I thank you for the glory of your presence that is here. And those that you have called to gather into your house today, whether they are watching or are in the house physically, or they’re going to watch again. I thank you that this word is for us. It’s heaven-sent to your house this morning.
Lord, we welcome all that you desire to do. We acknowledge the words that are being released in the house today. Praise God. In Jesus name. The Lord is saying, Just tell them what I am saying. I want you to listen so you don’t miss it.
For the last several years we have operated as a house with a one-word principle. In January of every year, usually in December, we begin to seek the Lord for a word or a phrase. (Sound cuts out.)
I decree and declare there will be no disconnect in the house today. Because the Lord is about to speak a word to your heart that will be like a jib sail, and it is going to carry you on throughout the rest of this year. It’s going to carry you through the birthing process of vision and dreams that God has been speaking to your heart.
The word of God is living and active. It’s full of power. It’s sharper than a two-edged sword. It comes to divide our soul and our spirit, our joint and our marrow. It’s going to judge the thoughts and the attitudes of the heart.
So on January 1 of each year we encourage everyone to seek the Lord for a word or phrase that would be the heart, the mind, the counsel of God for you personally. How many of you know your word for 2019? Pat—Accelerate. Yesterday or the day before God said, I am accelerating, Betty. That means we’re going. We’re moving. Laurie—Trust. Nita—Success. Kimble Love—Success. Anna—Surrender. Mine is Launch. Wanda—Fulfillment. Take Possession. Nancy—Victory. Pam—Redemptive Gifts. Dottie—Run. Rosemary—Wisdom and Love. Carol—Gratitude. Lane—Prosper. Praise God. Praise God.
Any of the children remember their word? Garrett—Heaven. We’ve got a young man in the house and his word is Heaven. I believe when the Lord gives you a word, he speaks the word so you will manifest the word. So everywhere he’s walking in 2019 he’s like a banner of heaven. If God has truly spoken that word to you, you will manifest it. Yay.
I can guarantee you for this year, it’s been a Launch year. For how many of you has 2019 gone so fast you can hardly keep up? I heard yesterday there are 18 weeks left until Christmas. Go figure! This is what the Lord said this morning. He said, Betty, a month from now on the 29th we are stepping into a new Hebraic calendar year. How many of you know Rosh Hashanah, 5780.
The way the Hebraic calendar runs, it begins in the fall, so we’ll step into 2020 and it will encompass 5780. Sitting here this morning, the Lord said, Betty, I want to get each person in the room—if you don’t have a word for 2019 I believe he can double down and give you that and then he can give you a jib sail. He said, Betty, your word for 2019, we know, is Launch. He said, Your jib sail is Navigator. I looked it up but I want Nita to come and tell us what a jib sail is.
Nita Maselle. When the winds change, there’s no wind for a little while. And it’s just dead. The water’s still and everything’s calm. You get out on the foremost point of the boat with the smallest sail. It’s closest to the horizon. It’s closest to the earth, the water. It’s a triangular sail and you let it out loose, and you are literally out there with your arm swinging it around, because you are looking for the very beginning of that new wind. Because you don’t know from what direction it’s coming. And when you swing that small sail out there, you’re positioning yourself to find the wind, to catch the wind. When you find it and you see that little jib sail has it, then it gives direction for all the large sails behind you. So that you can turn the whole boat into the wind for all the sails to just fill up with the wind, and then you are moving.
Betty. How many of you want a jib sail word? I believe he can give it to you today. I know that if you don’t know it today, that come the blowing of the trumpet, you will have it. So to go with Launch, I now have the Navigator. So Father, we say Yes and Amen. We thank you that we are in this place of Amos 3:7-8. The Lion has roared. Who will not fear? The Sovereign Lord has spoken. Who can but prophesy? That is to speak forth the heart, the mind, the counsel of God.
The Lord says, When you walk along the way you will hear his voice saying, This is the way; walk in it. So Father, I thank you for ears that hear. For eyes that see. And a heart that is yielded unto you. Not just here in this moment, but as we go from this place today cause us by your anointing to abide in your presence, to remain in you as you are in us. And may your words, your rhemas, abide in us.
So Father, as we open up this message this morning, I thank you that it is going to accomplish what you are sending it to do. It is going to complete the assignment that you have sent it for. We give you all the glory and the honor in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
Wanda had no idea, but the intercessors who gathered at 8 o’clock to pray this morning, they were talking about metamorphosis and butterflies. I didn’t know that. She told me at the break and I said, You’re going to like this powerpoint this morning. Because the word is about Metamorphosis.
We’re in one of the most incredible seasons of birthing, of receiving. But we’re also in a place where we do not need to get off-track. There is exposure going on in our nation right now. People who have been involved in activities for years and years and years are being caught, and they are going to jail. There’s a saying: You can run but you can’t hide. The psalmist said, Where can I go from your Spirit?
If you are a son of God, you cannot outrun God. He is relentless. He will not stop pursuing you. You cannot get away from him, because if you are truly born again, in this house we believe in the security of the believer. In that if you have a new birth experience, Holy Spirit has come into you and he has taken up residence. You have been born-again, born from above, and your salvation is settled in heaven. And he is the earnest. He is the one who comes to hold the house.
I believe that if you confess Jesus Christ as Lord and you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Salvation is found in no other name. You can’t earn it. We’ll never deserve it. We are saved by grace through faith. It’s a free gift. I believe because God’s seed remains in us we will not continue in sin.
I believe the Lord is wanting to bring a realignment. If you have open sin in your life right now, I am telling you that it is an opportunity for you to repent and be made whole. There have been things that have been trying to grab you out of your bloodline.
He said I need to talk about exposure first. I had a phone call at the beginning of the week, someone that is in alignment with us that was distressed, because they had recently listened to a radio program and it was saying that major Christian leaders were about to be exposed in the nation.
The enemy is an accuser. He works through accusation. There have been so many in the body of Christ taken out by friendly fire. I don’t want my mouth to be the tongue that brings somebody down. But there is a place, and I’m not talking about not confronting sin, that there is a way to deal with sin. And there are times that nationally things will be exposed because it is beyond. And I do not believe that is in the heart of God.
But we are at that neck and neck place right now. In this season you are either going to metamorphose into what God has said about your life, or what you are doing is going to fall down around you and disintegrate. Secret sin is going to be exposed. My understanding of how it works is, God will always try to deal with you first. And it might be a long time. I don’t know how long that time will be. Only he knows that. But he will continually come again and again to bring that prodigal. Many times we look at prodigals like they have just gone the whole other way. They have jumped ship and they have gone. And that’s the truth. Prodigals are coming home in this hour. I’m excited.
God builds into his calendar happenings that can happen all year round, but there are Sovereign Happenings of the Lord and next Sunday when we step into the new Hebraic month of Elul, it is about bringing home prodigals. It is about restoring relationship. Husband/wife relationships being restored. Father/children relationships. Master/servant.
But right now in this season, in this month, it is about the will and the desire, the heart of the Father for you and me. It’s about our destiny and what we were created for. So as the message came to me and the person was sharing and naming names, some of the names mentioned, it was unfounded. I’m not here naming names. But it has begun. I’ve been AWOL this week from media, separated unto the Lord to write a book. But the Lord began to do operation on me. I thought I went to write a book. He came to work on the book.
I went to Destin by myself. I didn’t want to go by myself. I could just take Anna. No! Well Kimble could meet me at the end of the week. No! Kimble and Anna could meet me at the end of the week. No! I could take Chloe, my dachshund. No! No tv. No nothing. Except him and you. Now that’s a wonderful thing. And I’m not despising it because it was all that.
But I also noticed things from my bloodline wanting to grab me that I have no desire for. I was like, What is this? The Lord said I was dealing with bloodline issues. He said this, and I do not say it in pride, because if you don’t know that you have an old man, that when you said Yes to Christ was crucified, dead and buried, and you were raised to a new life; but Paul said, I die daily. I walk in the Spirit, not to fulfill the lust of the flesh. If you don’t renew your mind and you disconnect from God and start drifting, you’re going to have a whole lot of noise going on.
He said, Betty, you are full of the Word. You are resisting even the thoughts that have nothing to do with you. What do you think about a nominal believer that really doesn’t walk there? What do you think about leaders when they go off by themselves and fall into sin? Do you have compassion?
We can talk about people all day long, but you face the war—addiction when you are about to come out of your skin. Feel that in your body one time and then. Understand what I’m saying. I’m not condoning sin. I’m saying, Come out of it.
I’m saying the Lord is here to bring us out of it, because if we don’t deal with our secret stuff, the prodigals that are AWOL. The Lord wants to deal with the prodigal places in our hearts. Me first. Where are you a prodigal in your heart? Where have you been wounded? Where do you not believe God? Where are you illegitimate? Where is secret sin? Is there any? And if there isn’t, shout hallelujah! If there is, I’ll sing a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies.
So without looking at media, I sat down to dinner last night with Kimble and Anna, and I heard about what had hit the web, and about leaders. The thing is, yesterday morning the Lord said, What she told you is now happening. Anna said to me this morning, Mother, it’s a two-edged sword.
Anna. What I really saw, that in this time of exposure and possibly seeing different national leaders fall, or things come out about them that are not just people’s opinions but they’re backed up with the truth, that it actually is so that they have fallen into sin. It’s really important how we handle that as sons and daughters. Because we don’t condone sin at all. And there is a time and a place for the truth to arise. And if people don’t turn from their wicked ways, it eventually comes out.
But if we take on this attitude of, I can’t believe them. And we start bashing all these people, the Lord said the same sword that is falling in this hour to expose, is going to turn around like a double-edged sword and come back on you, because we ensnare ourselves by the words of our mouths. It’s so important. We’ve been talking about mouths. We can hold to the truth, but there is a way. It’s letting the Lord lead us. But it’s very important how we deal with that.
Betty. It doesn’t mean you sweep it under the rug. But there is a way and there is an ecclesia. It says if your brother is caught in sin and you know about it, you go to that individual and you speak the truth to them in love. If they won’t listen, you take an elder with you. If they still won’t listen, then there is an exposure. There is a way. There is a God-way to deal with things.
But as we began to hear what has happened—don’t be surprised if it’s happening in the nation. Don’t be surprised it’s happening in the church. So I’m saying that. National leaders being exposed. But we need to be careful how we respond. Have you ever made a statement about somebody and something they were doing, and then the same thing comes to tempt you and you’re dealing with it on your doorstep? I’ll raise my hand first. If we’re honest, we’ve all been there and done that. And some of us have failed, like bit the dust. But by grace so goes me.
This is a warning message to you and me. It is about us honoring the Lord, receiving the grace that is ours in this hour, and allowing him to keep us on the path. If you have a known sin going on in your life, you need to deal with it. Because if you do not deal with it, you are going to loop this mountain again. You are not going to come into the place that you can stand in in this new season.
God is ever ready and willing, and we are in a time-gap time. So me first. Sin can be an attitude. It can be gossip, slander, lying. White lies are lying; there is no in-between. When the Lord gave the Ten Commandments, and I’m not trying to put law on anybody but they are his commands, he says to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your mind, with all of your strength; and to love your neighbor as yourself.
So we need to think in this season.
And it will help you when something comes out of your mouth, and you’re saying it or sharing it with somebody else, would you want them to say the same thing about you to somebody else or not? So think about it. Our mouths are going to be very important as we step into this new year because with our mouths heaven is going to run. I have an example.
When I talked about the power of the decree in here and the authority the Lord has placed in us to legislate heaven on earth, I shared about my sister that lives on Eagle Lake in Warren County and is part of the flooding that’s been going on. I showed pictures of the erosion on the bank of her lake house. Her dock, her boathouse completely under water. It looked like the whole bank was entirely gone.
I woke up early that morning before this word came about her. I walked out front with my coffee and I was just standing there praying and talking with the Lord and he said, Your sister’s situation is going to get worse before it gets better. But it’s going to be a lot better than she ever thought. And you need to let her know that.
Well, I came inside. About an hour or two later I got video on the phone and it was dangerous. 75 yards normally from the lake to the area that is now washed away. It was serious. And under those stairs more and more washed out. Right above it is her house. You can see the deck near it. Her house is one of the only few homes that did not flood. I opened the video. I had not talked with her.
I’m seeing this live video and I said, Oh my Lord, Oh my God. Like, You’ve got to do something. And the Lord was like, You do something. Oh my god, little g. It’s about ruling and reigning. Immediately I had an open vision and this is what I saw in the Spirit. I literally felt water on my ankles and I was standing up on that bank (below her house.) I saw those big red stop signs and I went across that bank in the Spirit. And it was STOP. I put stop signs all the way across her bank.
As time went on we got reports. Well, the roof to the boathouse is gone. The walls are gone. Things my dad had built. A cabinet that belonged to my dad. It was very important to my sister and our family—gone from the boathouse. All these things. Although they couldn’t see it because it was all underwater, but because the roof was off, all these things gone.
The report has come in. The boathouse is standing. The cabinet is still there. They put the roof back on the boathouse yesterday because it landed in her yard over a fence when the water went down. None of the rocks off her bank are gone. Her dock is fully intact. Nothing missing. Everything she thought was destroyed and ruined forever. And all that erosion is not there. There is a hole under there. But what they thought was the entire bank, the levee, was eroded, but it’s not. She has to have a levee. So the Lord was her levee.
What the Lord had me do in the Spirit in prayer. What do you mean you put stop signs? I could see myself in a vision standing on the bank, and in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, STOP! My sister is a psychologist. And we’re at two different spectrums, although she is a believer. So for me to call her up on the phone and be bold enough to say, I heard God say. And he said this, and I saw a vision. And I saw me putting stop signs out. I could actually feel your water on my ankles. She didn’t call for the white jacket, okay? Because the right one was standing up for her.
She said to me yesterday on the way home, All those prayers that you had people praying all over this nation, they really worked. I said, I told you what he said he was going to do. And then I’m like, YES! Because I knew if that water went down, and God had not made a way for her, then it was really going to be on him because I believe he said it to me. So he did it.
So I’m telling you what God wants to do through you and for you is exceedingly abundantly above all you could ask for, hope, or imagine. You don’t want to miss this.
Romans 12:1. Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I woke up in the middle of the night and the Lord began to speak to me about the things that are grabbing the bloodline. Your bloodline is your family tree. It goes back for generations. Alcoholism and addiction runs in families. Divorce runs in families. Heart disease. Sickness and disease runs in families. Abuse runs in families. Anger runs in families.
There are all kinds of things that run through the family line, and honestly our bloodline goes all the way back to Adam. So there is nothing good in our flesh. You cannot make your flesh better. The only thing you can do is like Paul said, I die daily. Reckon the old man dead. We walk in the Spirit and will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Renew our heart and mind. The way you do that is with the washing with the water of the Word, renewing it in the presence of the Lord. There is no substitute for that.
This is a season where the Lord has spoken to us as a house and you need to be inundated with the Word of God. You need wash daily with the Word of God. If it’s not but one scripture. You might say you don’t really have time for that. Well people make time for what they want to do.
TPT. Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God and be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship. Stop imitating the ideals and the opinions of the culture around you. But be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life.
So what the Lord is wanting to make known to you personally is his will for your life. And he is bringing you into it. We’re in movement; we’re in motion.
So I’m up in the middle of the night, having gone to bed early. I’d been asleep since 9:00 p.m. and I woke up at 12:30-1:00, and I’m seeing the Panama Canal.
We’re in the season of metamorphosis. When Paul said in Romans, Be not conformed but be ye transformed, that comes from the Greek word for metamorphosis, to be changed.
Metamorphosis is a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one by natural or supernatural means.
Panama is the native name of a village on the Pacific Coast on the Gulf and Isthmus of Panama. Here in 1519 Avila founded the oldest existing city in America. Panama is believed to be a Guarani word meaning a Butterfly. And also according to Wullerstorf, signifying a mudfish, perhaps because the flaps of the mudfish resemble the wings of the butterfly. From this town the name of Panama was extended to the Isthmus, the Gulf, and the Republic.
The Lord began to speak to me that we are in the canal right now. Whether it is the canal of birthing something new in our lives, but we are in the place of navigating the narrow. When you’re in the canal, you’re not going to turn around. You’re going to keep going. That came out this morning in the word. I had no idea that Panama meant Butterfly.
So we are in a canal or pathway or a narrow place with the Lord, and it is to bring metamorphosis, transformation, and reformation in our life.
The Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. It was built through the Isthmus of Panama. When is was built 25,000 people lost their lives. Officially, the territory was held by Columbia and initially they tired to build it. 20,000 lives were lost. The United States was working with them. Panama revolted against Columbia. The United States came into assist in the building of the canal. And 5,000 more people died before it was completed. Most deaths were from disease, from what they were exposed to.
For 100 years the United States controlled the Panama Canal. On the anniversary the Panamanians took it back. So now they have it. When you travel that canal, and your ship enters that canal, there are pilots or captains who are specially trained to navigate the locks on that canal, and take your ship through.
There are five locks. There is a grace in this season. It’s a prophetic picture of where we are. God wants you to come all the way through and be transformed and reformed spirit, soul, and body so you can walk in the fullness of his birthright and destiny for you. And we are in transition. I want us to get a picture.
You may ask why I’m talking about sin exposure, and we’re in transition. I am telling you, in a place of transition, when you come to the door, the gate, or the point of breakthrough, the enemy many times is sitting there waiting to put you in an ungodly cycle again that’s going to keep you from entering in.
Cain is a prime example. In Genesis 4 where Cain and Abel present their offerings, God accepted Abel’s offering and rejected Cain’s. Cain brought him the fruit of the land. Abel brought him the fat of the animals. They understood what God was looking for but Cain did not follow it. And what happened?
Kimberley Davis. They traded.
Betty. They traded. God does not want you trading on ungodly trading floors, swapping off something when he has the best for you if you’ll wait on God. It’s not about how. It’s about who you’re connected to. And his name is I AM. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and he is never late. He is always on time. Even Abraham went through testing. Against all hope Abraham in hope believed and so became.
So here is Cain and the Lord’s word to Cain is, Why are you angry? Why is you face downcast? If you do what is right will you not be accepted? But sin is crouching at your door. Where is sin? At the door. It desires to master you but you must master it. That’s grace.
What is grace? Grace is that God is going to speak to you and me directly and say, Hey Betty! This thing is sitting at your door. Well, Lord, that was like 50 years ago. No, Betty! This thing is still sitting at your door. This is what wants to master you. He is going to identify the issue. And he is going to uproot it, tear it down, destroy it, and overthrow it. This is a Get Out of Jail Free time. Come on, now. Get Out of Jail Free. Come out of darkness. Come out of captivity. Because I’m wanting to bring you through this canal.
There are three locks on the Panama Canal, the Transformation Canal. The Miraflores Locks, the Pedro Miguel Locks, and Gatún Locks. The Pacific Ocean means peace. The Atlantic Ocean means Sea of Atlas. It is connected with Greek mythology. Atlas was the titan who was known to hold up the sky or the waters. When they saw how massive it was, they gave it the name of the Sea of Atlas. Not agreeing with it but just letting you know why it was named that.
Navigating the Panama Canal is not an easy thing to do. I believe the prophetic picture here, the heart, mind, counsel of God to you and me is, he has got a captain on the ship and his name is Holy Spirit. And Holy Spirit is committed to bring you through the place of transformation.
Miraflores comes from watch and flowers. It means Behold the Flowers, or flowers view. Mira, to look at, to watch; and flowers. When you come this route, you come out of the place of peace, because we rest before rule. Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the days of the rebellion. You know, I rebelled; I would slug him off for a long time until he just got me. And when he got me, it took. Thank you, Jesus.
So you come out of the Place of Peace and you enter into this place, Behold the Flowers, Behold the Fruit. For the joy set before him, Christ endured the cross, scorning its shame. So once you enter into this place, you have a new captain on board. His name is Holy Spirit. And he says you just need to behold the flowers. You just need to see the fruit. You need to see into that vision.
You come out of a place of peace because he has destroyed the wall of hostility through his blood and he has brought us into union with the Father. And he says, Enter into the Transformation Canal. Will you come? And yes, it’s going to cost you something.
The ships that entered in, the cost for one of the largest ships so far that navigated the canal was a million dollars. The least cost for someone to go through the locks was 36 cents. A man named Halliburton swam the canal in the early 1900s.
Eight hours or two weeks. You want to do this thing in 8 to 10 hours, or you want to do it in two weeks? That’s what it would be if you go around the Cape of South America. To get from the Atlantic to the Pacific it takes two weeks and you’re going through storms, especially at the Cape. To pay the price to go through you may say I don’t have a million dollars—or even 36 cents—no yet.
See, Jesus paid the price. But what it’s going to cost you and me is our life, that self-life. Will you die for me? Will you lay down your life? I am crucified with Christ and I no longer live but Christ lives in me. And the life I live in the body I live by the faith of the Son of God. It is a lay down place in God. That’s the price. You want to do through transformation? Lay your life down. And the grace is here to do it.
See the end result. How many of you have vision on your life, the words that God has said? You need to look to the end. It’s going to be worth it. So whatever you do here is going to determine where you end up. That is a word that is coming nationally to the body of Christ right now. What you do today is going to determine where you end up. You want 8 hours or you want 2 weeks?
I want 8 hours to a new beginning, whatever that looks like with God. I want to go through the Butterfly Canal. See the fruit. Each lock has a building with it. We’ve had words about this. Pastor Kimble had the dream, The ship’s coming in. I see ships coming in that are loaded.
There are those of you in this room. You are loaded out with gifts and talents and the Lord is saying, Come on and navigate the narrow because it’s Ever Dynamic Transformation. Come on. When I saw Ever Dynamic (on that boat) I said we’ve got to have that.
The next lock you come to is Pedro Miguel. Pedro means Rock and Miguel means Who is like God? He gives you a vision. He gives you a word, a promise that’s going to cause you to be willing to get into the canal and give up the reins and let him captain your ship, because you can see the fruit.
Then you come to the place in the midst of the transition where you realize Hei Hei Hei, Who is like God? It’s not me. But I’ve got a Rock and his name is Jesus and he has gone before me. He is my King and he has broken open the way. Our house is built on the Rock, not on the sand. So we’re going to navigate the narrow.
When you are going through that canal, the locks, they lower the water and raise the water, and you go in. You’re going to rise or fall depending on which way you’re coming. In each lock I think there is something for us. I think there’s revelation. I think he wants to expand your vision. He wants to pro-horizon you. He wants to show you want is coming, show his goodness, so you’ll be willing to lay down your life.
I believe he wants you to know that he is your support. Who is like our God? Nothing is too hard for him. No word spoken by God is without power of fulfillment.
Gatún is believed to have come from the Spanish word ‘gatuna’ which means feline or cat-like. And I thought about our Lion King. This is the Lion Locks. And instead of being one lock, it’s three. Because when you come into contact with the Lion King, you’re going to have the fullness of God—Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
All together there are five locks. I see that it’s Grace. That had to be a God project for it to be done and to be completed. Why in the world would I see Panama Canal in a vision and why would the Lord begin to speak to me about it? Because we are here. That’s his heart, his mind, his counsel. You’re in the canal. You’re coming through transformation. Don’t stop now. And don’t worry about it. You’re going to enter in with peace. The end result is coming out in the Atlantic, into the sea, into the See.
So Father, right now in the name of Jesus, I thank you for everything you have released in this house this morning beginning with the first prayer and the first sound of the instrument. And Father, I pray in the name of Jesus. I know it is the goodness of God that brings us to repentance.
In your name, Lord, I ask Holy Spirit, if there is anything in our lives, sins of omission or commission, that we would see it and know it, that you would reveal it to us. If the enemy is trying to trap us in any way, I ask that you reveal that. Lord, you said weeks ago you were going to deal with what had grabbed us in our bloodline.
And we know that it is the power of your blood, Jesus, and the infusion of your word and your Spirit into our spirit man that saturates our entire being, that brings deliverance and healing. We have a different DNA flowing through us.
Lord, I thank you that you have given us a promise today. You have invited us into the canal of transformation and metamorphosis. And you have come to be our captain, Holy Spirit, and to bring us through those places and through those locks.
Lord, we commit and we submit. We say Yes and Amen to what you’re doing in this hour. I thank you for everyone that has heard this word today, that you are offering us a jib sail word, that’s going to take us into the new year and carry us through 2019.
Father, I thank you that you are committed to finish the work that you have begun for us. I pray right now for leaders and sons of God throughout this nation that are being exposed. I pray for their restoration and for their healing. I pray for healing for those that are hurt by their actions or have been hurt or injured or wounded or abused in secret by their actions.
Lord, you are putting an end to the devourer. You are exposing the works of darkness by your light so that your sons can come to true repentance and be restored. So Father, let us not add to the issues they are already dealing with. But Lord, let us be those that will gap-stand and continue to cry out for a spirit of repentance, revival, awakening, reformation, and transformation for us your people and for a nation.
And Lord, we give you all the praise and all the glory and the honor. Father, we pray for Danette Riley, for her full recovery and restoration. We pray today for Johnny with broken ribs, for him and Gloria, and complete restoration and healing for him. We pray for this body.
I pray for anyone in here who is being harassed or tormented or is falling into places of needing deliverance. Lord, you said Deliverance has come and we can expect it. I thank you for freedom and liberty, and I call the sons of God to come out and be free. We step out into the light and we say, Holy Spirit, search us; shine your light. Let us come out of the places of captivity into the freedom of your dear Son.
So Father, we give you glory and we give you honor. And we thank you that you seal this word in our hearts by the power of your Spirit and the blood of Jesus. Amen and Amen. Praise God.
