9/15/19 Miracle City Global
Anna Love. I shared this with my Mom Wednesday night. Does anyone feel like they’ve been facing some trials, or going through some testing, or some fire, or anything like that? I had this revelation. I’m sure someone said it with this year being all about the 9s. When Mom was sharing Dottie’s word from last Sunday, she said like so many have said, It’s all about the 9s. We’ve heard ‘to the 9s.’ She’s dressed to the 9s. It means ‘to perfection.’ I was hearing ‘to the 9s,’ not about how you’re dressed, but I was thinking, to perfection.
This has been a year about the 9s, about getting things right. It’s been about working through any sin, any secret sin, letting the Lord clean us out and dealing with any issues, and dealing with the words of our mouth. If this is all about the 9s and to the 9s means perfection, I feel like the Lord has had us in a pressed place kind of like a diamond. A diamond goes under severe pressure until it finally produces. It goes from an ugly rock to a beautiful diamond.
I believe that’s what the Lord has been doing with us. One word that’s been coming out is that it’s time for a great reveal, a season of revealing. Some have said an exposure, or unveiling. I believe we’re in a season and time where we’re in that pressed place. But it’s not forever. It’s a short time. We’re being pressed on into perfection, not perfection by works, but it’s the Lord perfecting himself in us so that we can fulfill all he has for us. So we can step in purified, clean, free from offense, free from bitterness, free from anger.
It’s to step into a place of the fullness of all he has for us like we’ve never been before. Have you ever looked back on a situation or come into a blessing and you look back on it and wish you had known then what you do now? Or I wish I’d had these things in order then like I do now, because I could really use that blessing to my advantage more than I did at that point, because I really didn’t know what I had.
I believe the Lord is giving us the know-how in this season so that as we progress we won’t look back and think, I should have done this or that. No. We’re going to possess that blessing fully and that blessing is going to bring increase to us as we go forward.
I Peter 1:5 TPT. Through our faith, the mighty power of God constantly guards us until our full salvation is ready to be revealed in the last time. May the thought of this cause you to jump for joy, even though lately you’ve had to put up with the grief of many trials. But these only reveal the sterling core of your faith, which is far more valuable than gold that perishes, for even gold is refined by fire. Your authentic faith will result in even more praise, glory, and honor when Jesus the Anointed One is revealed.
You love him passionately although you did not see him, but through believing in him you are saturated with an ecstatic joy, indescribably sublime and immersed in glory. For you are reaping the harvest of your faith—the full salvation promised you—your souls’ victory!
I believe we are stepping into full victory in this harvest season that’s approaching, and we have to step in with an attitude of gratitude. I shared that it’s about being grateful, having an attitude of gratitude, that Philippians scripture.
So Lord, I thank you for this morning, and I pray a spirit of thankfulness will arise in this house. Give us thankful hearts. Even though we may not be able to see things yet, Lord, I thank you that you will put such a thankfulness in our hearts that’s it’s already done. Like we already have it.. Like we’ve already received it.
Lord, just do a washing in this place this morning. I thank you that you’re washing away issues, that you’re washing away cares, that you’re washing away all that concerns us. Lord, I thank you that we are rising up in joy. We are rising up in victory. We are rising up in our salvation, in you Jesus, our Head.
I thank you that we have victory, that we begin to operate in a spirit of victory. That we are overcomers, that we are not lacking anything, but we are pressing forward. We are pressing onward in our faith. I thank you that we are running that race marked out for us and that we will not miss the mark but we will stay on target in step, on the path with you Jesus.
Lord, I thank you that your fire is falling in this place, and anything that is not of you cannot remain. It has to go. I thank you that nothing will be held back, nothing will be thwarted. Your plan and your purpose stands in this house because no one is more powerful than you. No enemy and no devil in hell is more powerful than you, and absolutely no man or woman is, Lord.
We give you all authority, all authority to move and do whatever you want to do this morning. Father, I thank you that our plans and even our desires get out of the way, and we say, Have your way. Do whatever you want to, in Jesus name.
?You’re worth is all. The time. The wait. Our lives. Our praise. Be lifted high, enthroned on our praises, Jesus Christ, the hope of our praise. You’re lifting our heads, revealing the fullness of the hope that we have. Oh giver of mercy.
You can have it all Lord. Every part of my whole world. Take this life and breathe on this heart that is now yours.
We receive your healing this morning. You’re lifting off the old. I lay every burden down at the foot of the cross. Everything I ever wanted I found in you. You’re all I’ll ever need.
Kimble Love. I really believe I hear the Lord saying today that it’s time to truly, truly, truly let go, to let him take control of the reins of your life. I know we’ve heard that and said that, but I just know that we’re in a new season. And I believe the Lord wants to do a new thing in us. I hear him saying to let go of the things you’ve trusted in that haven’t worked out for you. But to take hold of the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. Truly enter into that place where you seek and receive the mind of Jesus.
Ask him to give you true wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, especially discernment, so that you’ll know that you know what the Lord is speaking and showing you in this moment, at this time in our lives. I even want to go so far as to say that even things from the past that you think the Lord has spoken to you, and you haven’t seen results or the manifestation, ask the Lord was that thing really from him. Ask the Lord was that his word to you and not some fleshly desire or thought that you claimed to be from the Lord.
We’re in a time of testing. We’re in a time that the true metal that each one of us possess is being forged in the fire. The Holy Spirit wants us to be pure. He doesn’t want us to be metal that’s flawed, that will crack and break and be of no use when the flame gets hot. But when that white hot heat comes upon you, that the pureness and the fullness and the purpose that God intended from the beginning for each one of us comes forth. And we begin to shine.
Today I just want to speak out to any area of darkness that has plagued you. We as the body of Christ—I’ll speak for myself and Betty and Anna—the Lord has put us in this place. And he’s given us this body of believers—you guys. And we’re responsible for you guys. We want to see you live and move and have your being, and walk in the full potential that God created you to walk in.
Today I want to call out the attacks the enemy has against you. He’s plagued you with fear or anxiety, stress, or depression, doubt and unbelief and discouragement. I’m here today to tell you that if you feel like you’ve stood and you’ve done all that you can do, the Word of God says to Stand. Stand in the truth of His Word. Not on you own inclinations or mindsets or way of thinking. But stand on the truth of the power of the Word of God that brings forth life and healing, salvation and deliverance, that which will empower and equip you and see you through.
So Father, I thank you today that you are on the throne and in control. I pray you open our eyes to see, that we cast off those things that we have claimed to be from you, and if they weren’t, we repent. We throw those things off and we seek the fullness of your truth, of your purpose, your plan and your strategy for our lives individually, and collectively.
Lord, I thank you that you have blessed us, that you have saved us, that you are delivering us, and setting us free. Lord God, we take ownership of our mistakes, and we ask that you receive them. We lay then at your feet, at the cross. And Father, that you release your pure truth to us, within us, and that we rise up as the sons and daughters that you created us to be. And that we walk in the fullness of your Spirit in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
Betty Love. The plow point has come into Miracle City Global. The plow point, the point, the fullness of God, the power of Holy Spirit and the Word of God. The plow point has come to go to the very heart of man in our life and plow it up today, and break it up today. A breaking (11 times) is coming into the sons of God. A breaking is coming into this house today. A breaking, a breaking, a breaking, a breaking of things. Wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
That word innocent means to be unmixed. Like in the mixing of metals. The word of the Lord that apostle Kimble released. He’s going to the places in your life and my life, in our lives today. This is a day of deliverance. This is the day the gates and doors are open for you to come out and be free in wholeness and fullness. This is a day of destiny in this place.
This is a day where idols will fall. Strongholds will come down. Strongmen will be bound and broken over your life. A spirit, soul, body wholeness coming into us today. Favor is standing in your gate today. Favor is standing in the house today.
In the time of My favor, in the day of salvation I will answer you, says the Lord. And the Lord is answering us out of heaven this day and he is answering us from within by the power of Holy Spirit. The Lord says the things that have held you down, held you back, held you bound in your mind, will, and emotions, even in your physical body, Freedom is here.
It’s not lip service. It’s Life Service. The Lord himself has come to service you today. Bring your vehicle into the garage and let him raise you up on the rack. He is going to search you inside out. Outside in. And any destiny thief, destiny devourer that has had ahold of your life, you’re going to be set free. There is nothing off limits to the Lord. He said where you’ve capped Him, he’s taking off the caps. Where you have prevented him, where you’ve had boundaries, where you’ve had sacred cows, he’s coming in to deliver us. Ungodly beliefs, ungodly mindsets, things that have bound us, things that have perverted our destinies, the Healer is here. The Deliverer is here.
The power of the Almighty is going to overshadow this house today. And your way of escape is made. For the Lord your God says, No temptation has seized you but what is common to man. Is God not faithful to provide a way of escape? You are at a crossroads. You will either forgive or you will be handed over to the tormentors for another season.
That sounds strong, and that sounds like law, and it sounds like bondage. But the bondage breaker as come with his grace, with his mercy, with his love, to allow you to forgive, to allow you to release those records of wrong. It’s time to take those old records off the shelf. Clean hands and a pure heart. He’s removing the Baal structures of idolatry. The idolatry of unbelief.
Kimble Love. As Betty was talking about putting that vehicle on the rack, I could just see people, us, just like an automobile that we drive. We go long, and we go strong, and we go hard, but sometimes you don’t know something is going wrong with your car until you put it up on the rack and have it examined by a professional.
A lot of times your tires are out of alignment. You can keep driving, pushing your vehicle with your tires out of alignment, but after a time those tires get out of balance, out of round, and worn out prematurely. I see even some of us, we’re going hard and we’re going strong, but we may be a little out of alignment due to distractions, due to unbelief, due to whatever.
But I’m hearing Holy Spirit say, Quit trying to push through out of alignment. Come to that point of balance. Allow the professional, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, the Holy Spirit, to get you back into right alignment. And not only give you an alignment, but get your toe-in and toe-out, your caster and your camber, in the right order. But to give you an upgrade, a more powerful suspension, a clear vision, even raise you up where you can be in a better altitude so you can see farther and see more and know what he’s called you to do.
Come on Lord. Come on people of God. Lean not on your own understanding. But let’s press in. Let’s quit putting off that needed maintenance that we have, and let’s pull into the Holy Spirit garage, and get ourselves put back into order.
For now is the time. Today is the day. This is the stuff we’ve been standing for, believing for, praying for. Hallelujah. It’s not time to be getting ready. It’s time to be ready so we can step into all the stuff we’ve been believing for.
So Lord, have you way. Break every chain that hinders and binds. Take away the blind spots. Open our eyes to see. Help us to wipe off the windshield of our vision. No obstruction or debris or road grime or bugs, so we can see clearly now all the obstacles have been removed. Nothing but blue skies all around us. So that the Lord can move as he desires to move.
Anna Love. As they were talking about unforgiveness and the Lord dealing with unforgiveness, what was resonating in me as I was coming down here this morning was Unwillingness. That it’s Unwillingness. Then I started praying about unwillingness in my own heart and then in this body. And what unwillingness was.
I saw a child sticking their fingers in their ears and not being willing to hear. I saw that when we open ourselves up to unwillingness and we’re unwilling, we open ourselves up to a deaf and dumb spirit. We open ourselves up to a place where we can’t hear one another and we can’t hear God. Then we feel cut off and isolated.
So in those relationships where we’ve been unwilling to deal, we feel completely isolated, completely alone. We feel separated from God. It reinforces that anger and bitterness, and the unwillingness that we’ve entered into. I believe this morning the Lord wants to grant us a wiling spirit. In this season we’re entering into, it’s really about the will.
Our will has to be in line with His way. Because where there is a will, there is a way. If our will is tainted by self and by satan, and by sin and by anger and bitterness and rage and all these things, then we can’t step into His Way fully. Because we get on that path and have good intentions but we won’t be able to hear.
I feel like this morning the Lord wants to deal with our ears, with our hearing. As they were praying, I started hearing that old Misty Edwards song, People Get Ready. She says …people walking round with fingers in their ears. They don’t want to hear the sound of the coming King.
There’s a sound in this season, a sound coming out of the mouth, a sound coming out of heaven, a sound that’s being released. You need to hear that sound, because if you’re unwilling to hear the sound, you cannot shift for the future.
The reason this is so important, is that this is not about the new Hebraic year, or the new Gregorian year, or the new month. It’s about the rest of your life. So many things hang in the balance. Our destinies hang in the balance. I want all he has for me, for this house, and for you.
Lord, right now I pray you go to the core of our beings and that you uproot unwillingness in our hearts. That you uproot unwillingness in our mind, will, and emotions. Father, grant us a willing spirit that will sustain us. Grant us a willing spirit that will sustain us. Grant us a willing spirit to sustain us. Open our ears to hear the sound coming out of your mouth, Lord. Open our ears to hear you clearly.
Father, we repent for where we’ve cut ourselves off. We repent for where we haven’t listened. We repent. We repent for where we haven’t listened to one another. We repent for where we haven’t listened to spiritual authority in our lives. We repent for where we haven’t been able to listen, God. We repent for where we haven’t been able to listen to you. We repent. We repent this morning for all unwillingness.
Father, we repent for any place where we’ve held onto anger, rage, or bitterness. Even right now, there are some of us that say, I’m unwilling and I have a right to be. That may be true because of your situation or your circumstance, but the Lord says there is no place for unwillingness. No place. Because whenever we enter into a place of unwillingness, we make provision for the flesh and we give place to the enemy. And we open the door. We swing the door wide open, and we think we’re over here in our religious act and attitude, but we’re in an unwilling spirit. We’re enraged. We’re angered. We’re embittered by all these situations, but on the outside we look like we have it all together.
The Lord is saying those things, those places, those little foxes, any place that we’ve given to the enemy, No more. Because you cannot enter into the gate; you cannot cross over into this new season holding onto the baggage of the past.
I hear the Lord saying, Whatever hurt you in the past; whatever person hurt you in the past, whatever situation hurt you in the past, whatever church hurt you in the past, leadership, whoever hurt you then or is hurting you in the present, the Lord says, Let it go.
Because if you’ll let it go right now, he will fix those things that concern you. He’ll perfect them. It doesn’t matter how wronged you have been. The Lord says you have to let it go. Because the more you hold onto the unwillingness; the more you hold onto the anger, the rage, the bitterness, you are killing yourself and your destiny and your dreams and your future.
It doesn’t matter about that other person. The Lord is calling out to us. The heart of the Father is crying out to the children because it’s so important that he doesn’t want us to miss it. He is giving us a hand up. Nita shared about us reaching and pulling people up. The hand of the Lord is stretched out this morning and he is pulling you up. He is pulling you up, and any place you felt like you were drowning, any place you felt like you were ready to give up, the Lord is pulling you up.
He says, Don’t give up now. Don’t give up ship now. It’s not time to jump ship. The pressure has been there. The hard place has been there. Even the hard ground has been there. But he says if you’ll just keep pressing; if you’ll just keep pressing. Don’t get to the point of your breakthrough and walk away from it. Don’t get to the point where the baby is being birthed and abort it. You’ve waited this long for your promise, to see breakthrough. You’ve waited so long.
It’s so important about destiny right now. It’s so important that we can’t let go of the destiny the Lord has for us. I tell you this. This is not to bring fear or to make the enemy seem big. But the destiny devourer lies and waits in this hour more than ever before. This is a time, not just for us individually or for Miracle City, but as the corporate church all across the world, that there is a paradigm shift happening and we are shifting into awakening.
It’s not just awakening for the United States. It’s awakening for the whole world and he knows his time is limited. And he wants to do everything he can to get us off of it. Don’t be moved. It’s like he said, Stand. We have to stand no matter what. No matter the shaking that comes. No matter the shaking. No matter what things look like. Whether it be in your personal life, or your work life, or the nearest and dearest. No matter what things look like. It doesn’t matter how bad things look.
This is not to bring fear, but it doesn’t matter is someone drops dead around you. It doesn’t matter if a report says cancer; because we’re going to believe the report of the Lord, it doesn’t matter. Because remember, no matter what you see, it’s for the testing of your faith and if we will just hold on, and stand firm and believe, he’s going to come through for us, because when has he not come through for you? When has he left you? He never leaves us. He never forsakes us. He always comes through. He’s a good Dad. He’s a good Father.
Never will the righteous be forsaken or their seed begging bread. So look around you. Things may look bleak, but the sun is coming up. The Son is coming up. The night season is coming to an end and the sun is coming up. Don’t give up now.
Betty Love. You need to step into that right now. Just receive the word of the Lord through the prophet. Receive the word of the Lord (4 times). Receive the word (4 times). Have mercy on me, oh God, according to your unfailing love. According to your great compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me. We need to own that.
You tell me the things that have been in your past, even mistakes, sin, in the past week, in the last month, in the last six months, even things you’ve repented over, is the enemy not trying to bring them up again? The accuser is working overtime to cause you to believe you are disqualified. But the Father has qualified you and me to share in the inheritance in the kingdom of light. He has translated us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of his dear Son in whom we have redemption and forgiveness of sin.
The heart of the Father is here in us, with us, in this place today, to bring deliverance. Kimble nor Anna nor I have discussed what the Lord wanted to do here today. But the plan of the Lord is to bring deliverance from strongholds, strongmen, mental illness, mind binding spirits, perversion, anything that’s assaulted you spirit, soul, or body.
The spirit of death. I have never in my life. In the last three or four weeks have been bombarded with, You just need to die. You just need to take your life. When the spirit of death works so hard, that says to me the Spirit of life, the promises of God are upon us because he knows that is his last ditch effort.
Our Payload is here. I want you to hear the word payload. A payload is an armed missile. It’s a warhead. We are entering into a decade of PEY. Out of the mouth of the Lion the greatest prophetic destiny that has ever been on the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. It will pave the way for what is coming. Payload. We’re going to get a precursor today because he is going to drop a payload on your enemies. The B-2 spirit is here. That is the number one bomber in the U.S.
Payload. Payload. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The Lord is going to bring us into a realignment today. And he is going to go to the very core of your being and my being. I’m not excluded from this. I’ve got to have it, too. And the hardpan of your heart and my heart. Pride. Pride. When you don’t want to admit you’re wrong, it’s pride. When you don’t want to take responsibility for your stuff, it’s pride. When you want to deflect or put it off on somebody else, it’s pride.
It’s like my Mother said when I was a little girl: Sweep around your own front door before you go sweeping around somebody else’s. Me first. I can guarantee you deliverance is coming in here today for anyone who will open up their gates—the gates and the doors for you to come out and be free. It’s going to determine a decade of your life, what you do now.
Well, I’m in a relationship with someone and they just keep doing this stuff to me over and over and over again. So what? Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. He delivers us out of the hand of the cruel, out of the hand of our enemy. Just start saying so over the situation. If we will let the Lord go to the core of our beings, your forgiveness and your release is the very key to their deliverance. Well, I have a right to be angry. No, you don’t. You really don’t. It’s time to lay down our rights to the One who has the right. His name is Jesus Christ.
For I know my transgression and my sin is always before me. Are you ready to have the accuser, the torment that you’ve been going through in your soul, removed, even down to the very generational threshold where that thing first entered in? He is going to the uttermost and the gutter-most today to bring deliverance on anyone and through anyone that will have it. There are some opportunities that don’t come again.
But you are the core of Miracle City Global. And there are a few others. But the real core are the ones who are here now. And he will add to the core. We’re going to take this land because God said so. But before the land can be taken, you’ve got to be taken. Will you be taken by the Spirit of God today?
Will you allow the Spirit of Truth to go to the very core of your being and reveal your attitudes and your actions and the cycles that have kept you bound and blocked? Fear is a liar. The spirit of death is going to be broken here today off your life. The spirit of infirmity, broken off of your life today.
Against you, and you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight. So you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful from birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. But you desired faithfulness. Even in the womb you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
The Lord is ready to rescue an entire generation that are being formed in the womb. It says, Yet you desired faithfulness in the womb. You taught me wisdom in that secret place. There are going to be armies of this generation that are baptized in the womb like John. They’re going to come out of the womb in power and glory and promise.
Cleanse me with hyssop and I will be clean. Wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness. Let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.
Now David had murdered; he had committed adultery; he had done things, now. This is his prayer at the height of his sin. See, God looks at the heart. It’s about our hearts. And he’s come for your heart today. He’s come for you today. He wants every part and piece. We can’t understand why we can’t get ahead. It’s because we’re fragmented. And he’s bringing wholeness and fullness and a steadfastness.
Create in me a pure heart, oh God. Renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your way, so that sinners will turn back to you.
It is all about every person in this room being able to reach into the fire and bring a stick out. There cannot be just a few. There is an army rising, and you’re called to enlist in the army. That’s what the Head of the Year is all about. The blowing of the Trumpets. It is enlisting in the army of the King. And there is a call to the core again. It cannot be business as usual. You cannot have one foot in the world and one foot in God. You cannot have secret places. I’m speaking of me first. He’s talking to me first. Where you have one foot in the world.
He is saying, Make no provision for the flesh. Give no place to the devil. We’re in a battle right now, a battle within the war. And the battle has been you, really ‘self.’ It’s been a battle between self, satan, and God. The Lord says when you come out of this room somebody’s going to have a victory today.
Part of the payload, part of the Pey, PEY, the word means Victory. The Lord says you are prepared for a decade of victory.
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, oh God, you who are God my Savior and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice or I would bring it. You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. My sacrifice, oh God, is a broken spirit. A broken and contrite heart you God, will not despise.
May it please you to prosper Zion. If you don’t know, we’re Zion. To build up the walls of Jerusalem. Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt offerings offered whole. Then bulls will be offered on your altar.
Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt offerings offered whole. Today he wants an offering. It’s your life and my life, and it’s our entire being. He doesn’t want your spirit today. He’s got that. He’s got a anchor holding there. But he wants your entire spirit, soul, and body, and mine to be an offering. Are you willing to let go of what you’ve held onto? There’s really the question.
This is not a regular church. This is an apostolic training and equipping center for the army of the Lord. And it’s time we act like we’re soldiers. I’m not talking about bondage.
For there is now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ has set us free from the law of sin and death. There is another law that is greater than the law of sin and death. It is the law of the Spirit, and the Lord says, I want to bring a new law within your members today. It is the law of the Spirit.
In the law of the Spirit there are boundaries set for all of us. We need to quit acting like, me first, that we are a law unto ourselves and that we can do whatever we want to do whenever we want to do it and however we want to do it, because you cannot. And then at the end of the day have kingdom and what you really want—your birthright and your destiny.
I’m not trying to put anyone into bondage because I can’t do that. We put ourselves in bondage by ungodly beliefs, and ungodly soul ties to people, places, and things, rather than fixing our eyes on the Author and the Perfecter. How many of you want to come out of the spirit of death and debt and discontentment and distress? How many of you want to come out of confusion and mind-binding spirits, and deception. How many of us want true discernment? To be able to distinguish good from evil, right from wrong? To know what is life and death and take hold of life in Christ?
The Lord says, I am mantling you today. You are standing as Joshua before the Lord in the heavenly realm. I want all of us to see ourselves, every musician, every person in this room, I want you to see yourself standing before the Lord. This is right out of Zechariah. Just the spirit realm, see yourself standing before the Lord and satan is there to accuse you. Some of you don’t have to go very far because you have been in a hellacious battle. You’ve never had such an onslaught in your mind from the enemy.
The word of the Lord, The Lord rebuke you, Satan.
Jesus Christ himself said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, Satan. Is not this man, is not this woman, a stick snatched from the fire? Have I not chosen Jerusalem? And then the Lord says to the angelic beings that are there, Bring a clean robe. Take off his filthy garments. It is time. Today he will take off our filthy garments. And he will mantle you for war. War with the word. War. War. War words. Payload coming out of your mouth with the roaring of the Lion of the tribe of Judah with such force it will decimate, it will disintegrate the enemy.
Authority vested by Almighty God to tread upon snakes and scorpions, to overcome all the power of the enemy so nothing shall fail to meet the obligations of covenant. There is a realignment for the assignment. There is a re-mantling today in this place, and those watching, and those in alignment with us, that are willing to come on. We’re not the only house. I am saying to you this is happening worldwide right now. There is a calling up of the army of the Lord.
What are we warring for? We’re warring for kingdom. We’re warring for the rule and the reign of Jesus Christ in our lives, in our families, in our territories, tents, and treasuries. We’re warring from a place of victory. So he wants to come in and bring wholeness in our hearts today. Because out of the abundance of your heart your mouth is going to speak. You’re either going to have a payload to drop on your enemy or he’s going to get the drop on you.
This is an active environment. And I don’t want you to be fooled in any way because I want you to know I’ve been going through the same thing. Have had things hit me I’ve never had hit me in my life. I asked the Lord, Why this assault to my soul? He said, Because you will never fail to have compassion for the ones that are down there. You’re going to reach in and pull them out of the fire.
Don’t think for one minute that one sin is greater than the other. Don’t think for one minute that adultery is better than homosexuality. Your hatred towards people has to stop because God doesn’t hate people. He hates sin.
Zechariah 3. Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. The Lord said to Satan, ‘The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?’
Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, ‘Take off his filthy clothes.’ Then he said to Joshua, ‘See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.’
Now, I know that Jesus Christ, when he went to the cross, took all the sins of the whole world. Every temptation, every vile thought that you and I have ever had, he had it. He has taken our past, present, and our future sins, but we have a conscience. And the enemy works overtime with the conscience.
How much more will the blood of Christ who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished unto God cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death so that we may serve? He is not only going to break a death spirit off you and me, but he is going to break the very acts that lead to death off of us.
This is Jesus, I believe. The angel said to those who were standing before him, ‘Take off his filthy clothes.’ Then he said to Joshua, ‘See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.’
I discovered last year about this time that those garments actually means to be mantled for war. I want to put a fresh mantle on you. You’re getting the mantle now. He is not waiting to Rosh Hashanah. He is not waiting until the 29th at sundown to mantle you for a new season. You are here this morning because he is mantling you now. He’s saying, Deal with it now. Deal with the pain, the shame, the fear, the doubt, the unbelief, anything that has oppressed you, depressed you, brought you down, perversion, whatever it is, deal with it.
Worship Team, I’m being honest. The Lord told me two weeks ago that he was going to purge this team. And if you guys don’t respond to him, it’s going to break my heart to see what comes out. I’m not putting anyone under condemnation. I’m just telling you. We’re not immune. We’re not immune because we’re behind a mic or hold a guitar or play the drums. There is no immunity except in the Lord.
That goes for everyone in this house. There is a purge that is upon us and has been upon us. And that’s why the Lord keeps bringing that thing, and the enemy keeps bringing that thing, because it is a showdown. It is a showdown. It is a showdown. There have been Baal structures that have ridden over our heads. I’m asking for a level of discernment from the leadership in this house that it’s not going to crawl, creep, or move without us knowing it.
Quit petting sin. This is me first. Quit denying you have an issue. You need to own your issue. You need to look at it and own it, whatever it is. Me first. I’m not excluded, I’m telling you. I’ve been through it. And I’m going to go through it again and again and again with Holy Spirit actively working.
So today, today, this is a now house of Isaiah 49. He is saying, Come out and be free. He is extending his hand and he is going to help us out and up. Holy Spirit wants to be your new best friend. See, I didn’t even take that the way I needed to last year when he said, People, let me tell you ‘bout my best friend. We will respond because the Responder is in us. The Helper is in us. The Paraclete is in us. The Spirit of Adoption is in us. The breath of the Almighty is in us. The Revelator is in us.
The Praiser is in us. Worship is in us. The testimony of Jesus is in us. The Word of God is in us. The Life-giver is in us. Spirit of repentance is in us. The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord is in us. Love of God. Love of God. The Discipler is in us. So he wants to put fine garments on us, you; it’s personal.
How many of you are ready to step into interactive visions? That interactive vision when I was standing in the water of my sister’s levy, stopping destruction from her house, that was interactive. This is interactive.
Then I (Zechariah) said, ‘Put a clean turban on his head.’ So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.
So the Lord is standing by and he’s watching Joshua, Salvation of Jehovah, Salvation, Yeshua, being clothed, mantled. Then he wants to put something new on your head. Put a clean turban. Let’s put a clean covering over their head.
This is not just for me, but this has come again again to me, one year later. I’ll respond, and it’s not off limits to anyone in this room or anyone watching.
The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: ‘This is what the Lord Almighty says: “If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.
:7 If you will walk in obedience to me. I’ve got fire coming on my back right now. If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.
Every person in this room has an opportunity to govern in your sphere, in your territory, tent, and treasury. And governing starts with obedience.
Jesus said, If you love me, you will obey me. And I and my Father will come and make our home in your heart. The way you and I obey him is because he loves us. We love him because he first loved us. Anything that you and I ever do for God or are able to do for God, he’s the initiator; it’s grace; it’s him; it’s God working in us. We can’t do it on our best day. But we have everything in us in the person of Holy Spirit to do what God has called us to do if we’ll submit and we’ll yield.
So he says, If you will walk in obedience. That is living in obedience. Me first. If you know you’ve stepped out, repent quick. And get out of the cycle of repenting, and just doing the same thing over again. This is different. This is different. Some of us have repented for stuff in our lives only to go back to it. And just say, Oh I messed up; God will forgive me. And then just do the same thing over again. Maybe it’s a month, or six months, but we’re in the same cycle, and the root of that sin has never been broken off of our lives.
Whether it’s addiction or pornography or fear, whatever the issue is, it just comes back again and again. Then you get in another cycle of the thing and you repent. The mindset toward sin has been wrong. We need to hate it. We need to put as much distance between it and us as we can.
Let me say this. When we confess it, he removes it as far as the east is from the west. That’s the truth. And he puts it away. It’s not that it’s there to recapture. I’m saying that cycles of sin and disobedience have been so in our lives, they’re never really removed because it never goes to the very core. It’s not true repentance. I’m not trying to split hairs or force anyone into anything.
But true repentance brings life and leaves no regret. I think that is what God is wanting to do. He is really wanting to go to the very root of the thing and remove it. And that’s what he is offering us today. I’m tired of destiny thieves and destiny devourers and cycles in my life. And I don’t want anymore repeats. I don’t want to be in a place where the enemy can hit me. I want to be free.
Jesus said, The prince of this world is coming and in me and on me he has nothing. It’s time for us to live a life of abiding. Well, that means I’m going to have to give ‘me’ up. Yes, you are. It really is the truth. You’re going to have to decide what you want in a new season and a new era. Do you want a ten year decade of victory and walking in the fullness of the Almighty? Do you want to see the manifestation of your birthright and your destiny? Or do you just want to stay in the same cycle? Do you want a pot of porridge? Or do we want the rights of the firstborn coming forth in our lives?
You will walk in obedience to me. Lord, I can’t do this on my best day, but Lord, I’m trusting you. How about waking up, and some of you might be uncomfortable in it initially, but Holy Spirit really is living in us, and he really is God. He’s not a part or piece of God; he is the fullness of God. He is the representative of Father and Jesus. All the fullness of the Deity rested upon Jesus in bodily form. How did that happen? In the fullness of Holy Spirit.
How about Holy Spirit working with you like he worked with Jesus? This is an invitation. I can’t make you, just like I can’t make me on my best day. But I’m willing, Anna. And I want it. And I know if I don’t let God do this in me, I’m going to die. It might not be a physical death, but I’m going to die. I might as well reckon death. I will never stand in the places God ordained for me. And that would break my heart.
So what will you do today? What will you decide? Do you want your marriage restored? I do. Kimble and I are in one of the best places we’ve been in years. But there is more. And I’m thankful. I’m thankful that I didn’t quit. And if you don’t think there were times I just wanted to pack it in, and he wanted to pack it in. There were days I knew he didn’t like me, and I didn’t like him. I’m being real. Come on and be real. It’s time to be healed.
It’s time for fathers to operate like fathers. The initiator is in the house. Do you want to know the real initiator in the house? If there’s something wrong in your home, Dad, you’re the one to make the first move to bring repentance and reconciliation, even if you’re 100% right. Dads don’t do that today. But somebody in the family has got to be willing to stand up and say, I repent. It’s time for families to be restored.
If you’ll walk in obedience and keep his requirements. There are requirements in the Word of God. Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth but that which is useful for building up others. Read the book of Ephesians. You’ll get a whole download. Read Colossians and Philippians. You want to know how to live your life? Get over the ungodly truths that have been released on the body of Christ. If you truly embrace and receive the love of God, you’re going to live the Word of God. It’s the truth.
It’s how much are we willing to lay down our lives? And it’s not, anything goes. People might tell you, anything goes; you can do whatever you want to do. Paul said, Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial. You’re going to have to know via Holy Spirit what is beneficial for you. You’re going to have to know what the requirements are for you.
Some are just straight out citizenship because you’re a son of God. Other things God might allow you to do but he won’t allow somebody else to do it. Don’t put your law or your requirements on somebody else. Let God put the requirements for you. What’s the requirement. It might simply be, Walk in love. Walk in love everywhere you go. Walk in love. Walk in love. I don’t know what it is. But He’s going to show you. It’s not going to be foggy. You’re going to know. And it’s not going to be trumped up crazy mess and error.
Holy Spirit is coming in you today as the Spirit of Truth. Discernment is going to be here today. I’m asking the Lord for discernment.
When you keep his requirements, whatever that is to you, then you’re going to govern his house and have charge of his courts, and you’re going to have a place among those standing in the heavenly realm, an active place.
:8 ‘“Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.
The Branch is here to go into the bitter waters, the Marah places of our lives and change the bitter to sweet.
See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,” says the Lord Almighty, “and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.
I want you to know this. The Lord said to me, I am a single-day God. He is a single-day God. I haven’t read this. I’m reading this. I’m hearing it as you’re hearing it. I don’t know how long it’s been since I read this passage of scripture. The Lord told me what has bound, what has blocked, what has prevented, he said, “In a single day I’ll remove it, Betty.” In a single day. I believe a single day is upon us in this room today. I’ll removed the sin of this land in a single day.
‘“In that day each of you will invite your neighbor to sit under your vine and fig-tree,” declares the Lord Almighty.’
Anna Love. I think this morning everyone is grasping that we are in an environment for everyone of us to be healed. A lot of times we hear stuff and in the midst of service we feel the Lord moving and things turning and happening, but by the time we get to our break and step into the next service, it’s like we start letting go of what the Lord is doing. I would say as we begin to shift, let the Lord perpetually do this work in you today as you interact with people.
And set in your mind when you walk out of here today that situations in your life will be changed. That your family will be restored. That whatever you’re standing for will manifest. That wherever you need to shift, or whatever you need to let go, or whoever you need to forgive, will happen. He says now, in a single day. He said today. Today is the day for deliverance.
So we say Now Lord. We expect it Now. We receive it Now. We don’t let the words fall to the ground but we take hold of them. We call them to manifest in our lives.
Kimble Love. I heard Holy Spirit say we’ve all been through pre-op this morning. The Great Physician has prepared us for what is about to come. The Holy Spirit is moving in your spirit right now. As we take a break, allow that heavenly anesthesia to begin to work on your body. Because there’s going to be some surgery. There’s going to be some removal of foreign bodies, of cancerous places, tumors, that have accumulated upon us over time.
And the Lord says, There’s going to be absolutely total 100% successful recovery, restoration, healing and wholeness coming upon this body today, because there is no junk in Jesus.
So Lord, we thank you right now. Father, I thank you that you’ve taken us through pre-op. As we break for a few moments of fellowship, may we reflect on the things that have been released this morning. And Lord, prepare our hearts as we enter back in to receive total deliverance in Jesus name. Amen and Amen
?Good morning and welcome to Miracle City Global. I’ll say this, 100% positive, God is here. Holy Spirit is here and he’s performing surgery on his body today. How many are ready to be delivered? Healed? Set free? To be functioning in your fullness, in your destiny, your purpose and your birthright?
I thought of this earlier. We all know the story of Israel coming out of Egypt and how they wandered in the desert. They went to the promised land and were all on one side of the Jordan River, and God told them to take the land, to take Jericho. They sent out twelve who spied out the land, and they saw it was definitely a land of milk and honey.
They came back after scouting out the land and had a meeting. Ten of the twelve brought back an evil report. They said, We can’t take the land. It’s full of giants and we’re like grasshoppers in their sight. But there were two who saw giant grapes and giant fruit and giant possibilities and a vast land. And they knew that they knew that they knew it was theirs, because God said so.
But because of doubt and unbelief of the people who believed the evil report, the giants won out. As I saw that and was thinking about that, I was fast forwarding to December 7, 1941, the day that will live in infamy. It was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was a surprise attack on America.
The thing was, after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, they sent their first wave and it was a surprise. They sent their second wave of attack planes and were still a surprise, decimated our troops and ships at Pearl Harbor. They were about to send the third wave, but Admiral Yamamoto, the leader of the Japanese navy said, Don’t send the third wave. He said, We’ve lost our element of surprise. He said, We may have won the battle, but I’m afraid we have awakened a sleeping giant.
The Lord said today that each one of us has a giant on the inside of us. And it’s not an enemy. Today is the day the sneak attacks against you are over and that which you feel has defeated you will defeat you no longer. So awaken and come forth. Release that inner being that is within you, the Spirit of the Living God, and overcome ALL the power of the enemy.
So Father, we thank you today that you have called us to attention. I call our spirit men to arise, to come up, to step forward, and enter into purpose, so that we can walk into destiny. No longer will we be dismayed or discouraged, placed in doubt or deceived, but we come forth in the Spirit of the Almighty God to do what he created us to do. No more excuses. No more disqualifications. We are the sons and daughters of the Most High God, and we come forth as giants in the land, and we dispel all the attacks of the enemy in Jesus name. If you believe that, say Amen. Amen.
Father, we thank you that you have made us to be more than conquerors. And we enter in today to a time of worship to worship You in spirit and in truth. We say Lord God, we come forth in the fullness of heaven in Jesus name.
?End time army arise. End time army arise. I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies, louder than the unbelief, my weapon is a melody, heaven comes to fight for me. I’m gonna sing in the middle of the storm. Up from the ashes hope will arise. The King is alive.
Our Deliverer is here. He’s come into our midst. All you have to do is praise, worship, bow down, stay still. This is how I fight my battles. I rest in you Jesus. It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by You. My victory’s in Jesus name. Nothing is as strong as your blood.
Take your place in the army of the Lord. Arise today. End time army. One foot in front of the other, keeping time. Worship is my warfare. My praise is a weapon.
Oh my God, he will not delay, my refuge and strength always. I will not fear. Your promise is true. My God will come through always.
Kimberley Davis. The Lord was giving me this as you just said what you did. Music is my weapon. Not to entertain. Not to generate your emotions. Not even to make you necessarily feel good. But it is to bring my presence into your midst which will defeat every one of your enemies. It will trample every demonic idol and cult. The music I will and desire will raise the sounds to disorient the evil forces in the atmosphere and thereby, take back my land.
?Gonna take back all the enemy has stolen. It’s the blood of the One who is worthy. Oh you’re worthy Jesus.
Anna Love. I keep asking the Lord what he wants to do here, and he says there’s a place of recovery in this worship right here. He says that we haven’t fully recovered what he has laid before us. So as Jacob sings, We’re gonna plunder the pits of hell, just imagine, just see any place where you need restitution in your life. See that place being plundered, any place the enemy has stolen. We’re saying, we’re singing, we’re decreeing we’re going to plunder the pits of hell. We’re going to take back what he’s stolen.
?We’re gonna plunder the pits of hell. We’re gonna take back all the enemy has stolen.
Betty Love. All the way back to the marriage covenant, to the marriage ceremony. Not just for those in this room, but for those that are watching, all the way back to the beginning when you said, I do. When you entered into covenant, everything that’s been stolen in marriages and in families, the Lord is bringing restoration, restitution, and recovery.
The things that have happened in your lives individually, even since conception, you’re reaching back to recover right now. There are places you’ve walked through that you’ve earned authority. And you can reach in and recover. Right now, sons and daughters that are bound in addiction; I see sons and daughters that literally just shot up with something, we’re recovering them right here right now.
Taking hold, breaking the spirit of death and addiction off the sons and daughters. Off the prodigals. Come home. Come to your senses. Come out of that death trap. Come out of that destiny thief and devourer. Come out. Come out. Come out and be free in Jesus name. Any place of addiction (3 times), whatever form of addiction that has bound you in any way, those in this room and those watching, the Lord is reaching in and he’s saying, Oh it’s recovery time. It’s recovery time.
Broken relationships being recovered, restored. Finances being restored.
?We’re gonna plunder. Gonna plunder the pits of hell.
Anna Love. Right now, speaking into what she was saying about prodigal sons and daughters coming back, and speaking into addiction, I know there are different ones of us in this room who’ve lost someone to addiction. The Lord says, Right now we have the authority in the spirit realm to plunder the pits of hell.
So where you may have lost a seed, that seed didn’t go to the ground not to produce fruit. So we say right now, right now Lord, reach into the hearts of sons and daughters who are lost, who are stuck in addiction. We say we’re pulling them out as we plunder the pits of hell. We’re pulling out sons and daughters. Come out and be free. Come out of addiction. Come home. Come home….
?Come home sons and daughters….
Anna. We’re going to decree, Let the redeemed of the Lord say so this morning. We’re going to say ‘So’ over every situation, every circumstance, whatever is going on, whatever you’re facing, we can say ‘so’ over that thing.
Betty. There’s a cleansing taking place.
Rick came and he shared that he smelled like an alcohol cleansing wipe. It was so strong it took his breath. I asked him in what way he discerned or saw that, and he said he saw it as cleansing.
So we just want to acknowledge that it’s in the atmosphere. The cleansing. Even the smell. You’ve come to cleanse, Lord.
?Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Sing of his promises forevermore. Pour out your faithfulness and let it overflow.
Betty. We’re about to enter into the table of the Lord. Before Apostle Kimble comes and shares, I want you to know this is a God anthem this morning. The only song I knew we were going to sing was Hallelujah. What God stored in us was a now word. Even in the message this morning, Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. The Lord gave us Isaiah 49.
He is saying to the captive places in us, any place of captivity, Come out and be free. He is here as Deliverer, as Defender, as Healer. He is here to do in you and me what we can’t do in our own strength. He’s opening a gate, a door of deliverance. And he has released angelic beings in this place. He said, Move out of the way. So I just moved on over here.
Angels are sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. There is help from heaven in this place to bring you fully into the deliverance that God has ordained. Just believe it. Just receive it. So let the redeemed of the Lord say ‘so.’ Who has delivered us from the hands of our enemies. Your payload is here, literally.
I see the Spirit of the Lord. I see heaven’s army releasing ambushments on the enemy, releasing bombs out of the heavenly realm. We need to know who is working with us and running with us and warring with us. There is an angelic army that is being pulled down into this place to war over cities, over territories, over families.
How are we going to win the war on addiction and the war on gangs? We’re going to win it in the heavenly realm. How are we going to win the war? We’re going to operate from that seated position in Christ. You war down here, you’re going to lose. But if you’ll come up in the Spirit, and begin to war through the Lord and by his Spirit, you’re going to have victory (5 times). God’s word upon your tongues causes you to overcome. A ten year season of overcoming. A ten year season of victory. Out of the gates running.
Kimble Love. Church, we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, the word of our testimony causes us to stand firm and stand fast, to go forth and produce. Today as we continue to worship, we celebrate the table of the Lord, and partake of the body and the blood of Jesus. We come and bring our tithes, offerings, and first fruits, that which the Lord has so blessed us with, to sow as seed into the ministry, to invest into the kingdom, so that we can go forth in supernatural power and strength. God is the God of multiplication. He can take a little and make a lot. He multiplies.
So Lord, we thank you today for the ability to go forth and produce wealth, to be good stewards, to be a blessing to this world that you have given us. Lord, you have said that we have dominion. And may we begin to walk in that dominion you said we have as we honor you with our first fruits, tithes, and offerings.
As we come to your table to partake of Communion, just as you met with your disciples at that last supper, after the meal you took the bread and broke it and you said, This is my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me. Then you took the cup and you blessed it. You said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood which is to be poured out for you. Whenever you drink of it, do it in remembrance of me.
So today, we’re going to come and sup with the Lord by eating of the bread and drinking of the cup, to celebrate the life, the death, the resurrection of our Lord Jesus. To say Yes to the full benefits of the new covenant which is our salvation, our deliverance, and our healing, provision of the Lord, everything that we need to navigate this earth as we move heaven forward.
So Lord, today we thank you for the cup. We thank you for the bread. We thank you for the sacrifice of Jesus. And through his blood we have been redeemed, brought back to relationship with you, our Father. And we’re able to do all things through Christ who gives us strength. So we honor and we bless, and we say, Have your way, Lord. We say ‘so’ because we’re the redeemed in Jesus name.
?You are my Deliverer. You are my promised land. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Pour out your faithfulness and let it overflow.
Michelle. Everything else can wait. I’ve come to seek your face. I’m here for you. I want to just be here at your feet. Just be here on my knees. Here in your presence I am complete. Jesus, you’re all that I need. You’re all that I need.
Anna. Jesus, you’re the holy and anointed one.
Betty Love. We worship you Lord. We open our entire spirits, souls, and bodies up to you today. Lord, we acknowledge you as our Deliverer, that you have come to set us free by the power of the Holy Ghost that lives within us. You’ve decree victory over us. So we honor you. We are your house, your body, your tabernacle, your temple, your building, your Bride, your sons of God. Have your way. Come and have your way.
So Father, I thank you that every heart, every person in this room and watching, are prepared to hear the word of the Lord, that it will go forth and prosper and accomplish in every life and heart, in every home, in our territories, tents, and treasuries what you are sending it to do.
I decree and declare that today is the Day of the Favor of the Lord. Today is the day of Salvation. We call the captive. We call those in darkness, every place of captivity, every place of darkness in our own lives, we say, Come out and be free in the name of Jesus, in the name of Yeshua.
Lord, we thank you Holy Spirit that you are carrying us here today. And Lord, that your anointing, your authority, and your ability is manifesting here and now. That the word doesn’t originate with us but, Lord, that it originates with you. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of men, but men prophesied, they spoke as they were carried by the Spirit of God.
So Father, I thank you for your heart, your mind, your counsel, your proceeding word, the testimony of Jesus manifesting here and now in this place. Lord, we thank you for fruit and fruit that stands because Jesus, you are working with us. You are working with your end-time army, with your end-time harvesters. Amen and Amen.
If you have your Bible, go to Judges 6. One of the words spoken over us is that out of the house, out of the New Covenant, God was going to raise up Gideon’s army. And that we at Miracle City would become a thousand strong standing army, Warrior Bride for the Lord. The Lord called you the end-time army this morning. If you are part of this house, I would say that even in this nation the Lord is raising up his remnant; he is calling an end-time army to rise up.
Gideon’s name means, One who cuts down, a feller, like in felling a tree. I believe the Lord is here because he is ready to cut down our enemies. He’s not just going to chop it down level to the ground. He’s going to uproot that thing, tear it down, destroy it, and overthrow it.
Judges 6:1 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites.
Midian means strife. Strife. How would you like to be sold into seven years of strife? The Word of God says where there is strife, there is every evil work. I believe the Lord is bringing this message today because he wants us to be free from strife. We’ve been well-diggers like Isaac, set in the land to go and reopen the wells of salvation. And not just the old wells but the new wells.
The resources that we need to accomplish and to establish the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven are upon us. I believe many of us in this room have seen that as we get ready to come out of something, as we get ready to come out of a cycle, as we pay off a debt and get on our feet, thinking this is good, this is God, I’ll have more, I’ll be able to do more for the kingdom, and then all of a sudden it gets wiped out again and we’re back in that cycle. It’s a devouring.
I believe this word is for us this morning because I believe the Lord is going to break the Midianite curse off of our lives. I believe the parents and families in this room, the youth and the children, it’s going to go and break that off of your seed, so they don’t experience the same cycle that you did.
I believe there is an establishing of the kingdom of God coming in you and me on earth as it is in heaven. I believe the Lord is going to root and ground you in himself in such a way that you will not be moved off the promise of God, but you will see manifestation.
:1-2 So, the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites. Because the power of Midian was so oppressive the Israelites prepared shelters for themselves in mountain clefts, caves, and strongholds.
The Word of God says that in righteousness you will be established. Oppression will be far removed. Terror will not come near you nor fear. If anyone attacks you, it’s not my doing, says the Lord. And whoever attacks you has to surrender to you. Isaiah 54:13. He goes on to say, No weapon formed against you will prosper and you will refute every tongue that would rise to accuse you.
God is raising up gatekeepers, and you’re a gatekeeper. You’re a gatekeeper for your life; you’re a gatekeeper in your home; you’re a gatekeeper in your treasury, your tent, your territory. So the Lord is coming into our lives this morning to bring deliverance. To every place of captivity, every ungodly belief, every ungodly mindset, where there has been strife within you and strife outside of you, where you’ve been suspicious, suspicious of your spouse, holding onto past things. The Lord is ready to come in and heal and deliver and set free. And he’s doing it.
Because of the power of Midian and because of the Amalekites. Midian comes in with strife and the Amalekite spirit comes in to just lick it all up, to take it. So they were hiding out.
:3 When the Israelites planted their crops the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples invaded the country.
You’ve sown your seed and planted your crop.
They camped on the land and ruined the crops all the way to Gaza and did not spare a living thing for Israel, neither sheep nor cattle nor donkeys.
It’s called the scorched earth policy. They come through and devour and destroy everything until there is nothing left. Nothing to produce. The sheep, the cattle, the donkeys, every means is taken.
:5 They came up with their livestock and their tents like swarms of locusts. It was impossible to count them or their camels; they invaded the land to ravage it.
:6 Midian so impoverished the Israelites that they cried out to the Lord for help.
All of us have been in a place and a battle with the enemy at different times of our lives where it gets to the point we cry out to God. And it’s not just out of our mouth. It’s from the core of our being.
:7 When the Israelites cried out to the Lord because of Midian, he sent them a prophet who said, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I brought you up out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
:9 I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians. And I delivered you from the hand of all your oppressors; I drove them out before you and gave you their land. I said to you, “I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.”But you have not listened to me.’
There are places in my life personally, and your life, if you’re honest with yourself, where you’ve not listened to the Lord. You know God’s been saying, You need to deal with this, or fix that, or repent of that, or stop doing that, or stop disobeying the law of the land. You don’t know why. I’m talking to me first. He brought me back to this point. We don’t know why we don’t see things bow. We don’t see things moved.
If you are violating the law of the land, you’re not going to have authority in the land. Somebody got real quiet, me first. If you’ve done like I’ve done, you’ve taken the five miles grace because God is full of grace, just sit down right now. If we disobey the law of the land—he brought me to this this morning. I had to repent again again. And you speed, guess what? You don’t have authority in the land.
Don’t let somebody else tell you different. You might for a little while, but there is a time and a season where God is going to clip you on the little foxes that spoil the vine, because he is wanting you as Joshua to have a place among those that govern. Well, don’t put law on us. I didn’t. It is written. There is civil authority. There is spiritual authority. God will always have authority.
I was in a good place to get the word of the Lord. He said, Betty, everybody has boundaries. You’ll always have boundaries. Anyone who doesn’t have boundaries doesn’t really know who God is. He has set boundaries. Even the sea has boundaries. I want to stand again, not for my sister, but in the midst of the flood on the levy or the ocean shore and say, You can’t come in here.
How do you get to do that? Because you are repented up. When the enemy comes he can’t find anything in you because you are abiding in Jesus as he is in you. And you can speak to the enemy and tell him to go. There is an authority and an ability and an anointing that you already have that belongs to Jesus Christ, and he is wanting to bring you forth in it.
He is going to the things that have come to steal, kill, and destroy in our lives and he’s saying, I’ve come again again to deal with this and this and this. Will you face yourself in me? And will you let me take those things out of your life? I’ve come to deliver you. I come to bring you through the gates.
Every place where I have rebelled against the voice of the Lord in my life, I repent. Every place where I have been a law unto myself and my own governor, I repent. Every place where I have not taken the nudge of Holy Spirit or the invitation of what he wanted to do in me and through me; every place of procrastination; every place of weariness; every place where I’ve allowed death to operate, I repent.
Every place where there’s been strife within me and strife coming out of me, I repent. Every place of unforgiveness, bitterness, resentment, fear, every idolatrous altar, I repent. Because he’s come for the idols today. One of the big ones is unbelief. Because if we really believe the Word of God and really believe he is who he says he is; if we really believe he’s with us, we won’t act the way we do. I’m just being real.
He’s coming or we’re going. Some of us sooner than later. So we need to recognize who he is. He is a God of love and mercy and grace. And he wants to deliver you and me today. And he wants to position us in his army. He wants you to stand in the places he has ordained for you in the high places. He wants you to occupy.
:11 The angel of the Lord came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites.
How many of you know you don’t thresh wheat in a winepress?
:12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, ‘The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.’ ‘Pardon me, my lord,’ Gideon replied, ‘but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, “Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?”
He said, Where are the miracles? Where are the signs and the wonders? Where are the promises God has spoken over my life, that he’s spoken personally to me, what has been prophesied over me? That has been prophesied over this nation? Where is it?
“Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?” But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.’
Into the hand of strife. Doesn’t it look like that as a nation! I’ve never seen so much strife in the nation! Party against party. Families, stuff.
:14 The Lord turned to him and said, ‘Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?’
There are sent ones in this room today. You’re part of an apostolic army so you are sent. You are sent into your sphere of influence, your territory. You have a place that God has ordained for you. And he has ordained us to take the message of the gospel of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
He has called us to dispel the darkness and to take back captives, and to see people come into freedom, to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. He is about souls. He is offering us souls in this house this morning. This is about souls. Saving cities. Cites of refuge are about souls.
:15 ‘Pardon me, my lord,’ Gideon replied, ‘but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.’
I love God. I don’t care what it looks like, what you feel like, what you think, where you’ve been, what you’ve done. God will take the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. He will take the weak things of the world and make them strong and use you like a battle-ax against the enemy. He loves it. He’s always doing that. Yay! What are those people doing down there in that green building?
:16 The Lord answered, ‘I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.’
Are you ready to take your enemy and there not be a head left on him?
:17 Gideon replied, ‘If now I have found favor in your eyes, give me a sign that it is really you talking to me.
He is dealing with doubt and unbelief. He’s being honest and he’s being real, because we’ve all been there done that. Okay Lord, where are you? Yesterday would have been good. We are sinking. This ship is going down. We don’t know what we’re going to do, Lord. I’m trying to get a little bit of grain, and the first thing the Lord sees is beyond every excuse Gideon has, because he addresses him as who he really is. Arise, mighty warrior! Mighty warrior. He’s addressed us this morning as the End-Time Army.
So he’s going to fleece it.
Please do not go away until I come back and bring my offering and set it before you.’ And the Lord said, ‘I will wait until you return.’
:19 Gideon went inside, prepared a young goat, and from an ephah of flour he made bread without yeast. Putting the meat in a basket and its broth in a pot, he brought them out and offered them to him under the oak.
:20 The angel of God said to him, ‘Take the meat and the unleavened bread, place them on this rock, and pour out the broth.’ And Gideon did so. Then the angel of the Lord touched the meat and the unleavened bread with the tip of the staff that was in his hand. Fire flared from the rock, consuming the meat and the bread. And the angel of the Lord disappeared.
:22 When Gideon realized that it was the angel of the Lord, he exclaimed, ‘Alas, Sovereign Lord! I have seen the angel of the Lord face to face!’ But the Lord said to him, ‘Peace! Do not be afraid. You are not going to die.’
There are people that have face to face encounters in the spirit realm with God and they are not dead.
:24 So Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and called it The Lord Is Peace. To this day it stand in Ophrah of the Abiezrites. That same night the Lord said to him, ‘Take the second bull from your father’s herd, the one seven years old.
How long has the curse been operating? Seven years. So we’re going to take a seven year old bull.
:25 Tear down your father’s altar to Baal and cut down the Asherah pole beside it.
I believe this morning the Lord clearly spoke to me that he wants to tear down the Baal structures in our lives. It’s doubt and unbelief. It’s idolatry.
:26 Then build a proper kind of altar to the Lord your God on the top of this height. Using the wood of the Asherah pole that you cut down, offer the second bull as a burnt offering.’
:27 So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the Lord told him. But because he was afraid of his family and the townspeople, he did it at night rather than in the daytime.
So his father has an altar to Baal. And God is sending him on a mission. I am going to deal with the generational sin in your family. And even though you might be the least in your family, you’re going to tear down that altar. He wasn’t brave so he didn’t do it in the daylight. He’s going in the cover of night.
:28 In the morning when the people of the town got up, there was Baal’s altar, demolished, with the Asherah pole beside it cut down and the second bull scarified on the newly-built altar! They asked each other, ‘Who did this?’ When they carefully investigated, they were told, ‘Gideon son of Joash did it.’
:30 The people of the town demanded of Joash,
Obviously, this was the stronghold over the town. This was their altar to Baal. Hei Hei Hei. I heard that. Kimble said, The false god of the city.
‘Bring out your son. He must die, because he has broken down Baal’s altar and cut down the Asherah pole beside it.’ But Joash replied to the hostile crowd around him, ‘Are you going to plead Baal’s cause? Are you trying to save him? Whoever fights for him shall be put to death by morning! If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar.’
:32 So because Gideon broke down Baal’s altar, they gave him the name Jerub-Baal that day, saying, ‘Let Baal contend with him.’
:33 Now all the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoples joined forces and crossed over the Jordan and camped in the Valley of Jezreel.
Jezreel is God planted. Let them come into the Valley of God Planted.
:34 Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him. He sent messengers throughout Manasseh, calling them to arms, and also into Asher, Zebulun and Naphtali, so that they too went up to meet them.
:36 Gideon said to God, ‘If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised—look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing-floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said.’ And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.
:39 Then Gideon said to God, ‘Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew.’ That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.
Judges 7:1 Early in the morning, Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and all his men camped at the spring of Harod. The camp of Midian was north of them in the valley near the hill of Moreh.
:2 The Lord said to Gideon, ‘You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, “My own strength has saved me.”
Hear this word, now.
Now announce to the army, “Anyone who trembles with fear may turn back and leave Mount Gilead.”’ So twenty-two thousand men left, while ten thousand remained.
Okay, you are a thirty thousand strong army, and you are facing an army that for seven years has devoured and destroyed you. The announcement is: Anybody afraid? Go home. And twenty thousand walk off the field. How are you going to feel about that?
:4 But the Lord said to Gideon, ‘There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will thin them out for you there, or I will sift them for you there. If I say, “This one shall go with you,” he shall go; but if I say, “This one shall not go with you,” he shall not go.’
:5 So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the Lord told him, ‘Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.’ Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink.
Why? If you are drinking from your hand, you are not taking your eye off the field. You are watching. You are ready.
:7 The Lord said to Gideon, ‘With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the others go home.’ So Gideon sent the rest of the Israelites home but kept the three hundred, who took over the provisions and trumpets of the others. Now the camp of Midian lay below him in the valley.
:9 During that night the Lord said to Gideon, ‘Get up, go down against the camp, because I am going to give it into your hands.
I really want us to take hold of this. Me first. If God says he is going to do something, he means to do it. He will say up front, he will state what he is going to do. The first word of the Lord to Gideon was, Arise, mighty warrior. He called him a mighty warrior.
He called Abraham the father of many nations when he had no children. God will call those things that are not as though they were, because he aims to do what he said he would do.
The first thing I received as a prophetic word from the Lord through a prophet was, Even as Esther I have called you to go forth and set my people free. There is an ability within the Daddy God DNA that’s within me to set the captive free. So ask me, Why are you not setting the captive free? This is your day, you and me, to come out and be free.
:10 If you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with your servant Purah and listen to what they are saying.
Sometimes the Lord just wants you to be in on the conversation with your enemy. He wants you to hear what the enemy is saying.
Afterwards, you will be encouraged to attack the camp.’ So he and Purah his servant went down to the outposts of the camp.
So Gideon, I’m about to give you a confirmation. I want you to take your armor bearer, take your servant, go down and listen to what they’re saying in the enemy’s camp.
:12 The Midianites, the Amalekites and all the other eastern peoples, all those ‘ites had come together, and settled in the valley, thick as locusts. Their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore.
That is a lot of camels. Say, That’s a lot of wealth in that valley.
:13 Gideon arrived just as a man was telling a friend his dream. ‘I had a dream,’ he was saying. ‘A round loaf of barley bread came tumbling into the Midianite camp. It struck the tent with such force that the tent overturned and collapsed.’ His friend responded, ‘This can be nothing other than the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God has given the Midianites and the whole camp into his hands.’
Yay God. Let the enemy prophesy his demise.
:15 When Gideon heard the dream and its interpretation, he bowed down and worshipped.
Do you think you would bow down and worship when you have stood on the ridge and overlooked the valley with armies of all the eastern people? And their camels are like the sand on the seashore? So thick you couldn’t count them? Then God opens your ear to hear the dream?
He returned to the camp of Israel and called out, ‘Get up! The Lord has given the Midianite camp into your hands.’
See, satan knows the end of the book. He can read. He knows his time is short. And he knows that we are an end-time army. He knows who we are. But when you discover who you truly are and you rise up in the identity that is yours, doubt and unbelief—the idol, the idolatry of Baal brings doubt, unbelief, and confusion—he wants to tear that down today.
:16 Dividing the three hundred men into three companies, he placed trumpets and empty jars in the hands of all of them, with torches inside. He has a plan. ’Watch me,’ he told them. ‘Follow my lead. When I get to the edge of the camp, do exactly as I do. When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, then from all round the camp blow yours and shout, “For the Lord and for Gideon.”’ Or, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon.”
:19 Gideon and the hundred men with him reached the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, just after they had changed the guard. They blew their trumpets and broke the jars that were in their hands. The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, ‘A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!’
:21 While each man held his position round the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.
Are you ready for your enemy to cry out and flee? I’m not talking about flesh and blood. I’m talking about the enemy.
When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords. The army fled to Beth Shittah towards Zererah as far as the border of Abel Meholah near Tabbath.
:23 Israelites from Naphtali, Asher and all Manasseh were called out, and they pursued the Midianites. Gideon sent messengers throughout the hill country of Ephraim, saying, ‘Come down against the Midianites and seize the waters of the Jordan ahead of them as far as Beth Barah.’ So all the men of Ephraim were called out and they seized the waters of the Jordan as far as Beth Barah.
In this season and time, if you control the water, you had power. It’s still that way today.
:25 They also captured two of the Midianite leaders, Oreb and Zeeb. They killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb at the winepress of Zeeb. They pursued the Midianites and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon, who was by the Jordan.
So they cut their heads off.
Judged 8:1 Now the Ephraimites asked Gideon, ‘Why have you treated us like this? Why didn’t you call us when you went to fight Midian?’ And they challenged him vigorously. But he answered them, ‘What have I accomplished compared to you? Aren’t the gleanings of Ephraim’s grapes better than the full grape harvest of Abiezer? God gave Oreb and Zeeb, the Midianite leaders, into your hands. What was I able to do compared to you?’ At this, their resentment against him subsided.
We’re going to have victory after victory after victory (11 times she says victory) in this season, in this ten year era that we’re entering into. If you are allowing God to do what he needs to do in you, your victory is assured. But as we have victory, as Dottie has victory, I’m not going to get jealous over Dottie’s victory; I’m going to rejoice with her. If she has victory, I have victory.
When City Gate and Susan and Clay Nash have victory, when they build that Ark and finish what they’re doing in Arkansas, I’m not going to be jealous. I’m going to rejoice with them, because Hei Hei Hei, they’re kingdom building.
When you take out your enemy, when you have victory, we’re not going to split hairs on who flipped the switch. I’m telling you today. I haven’t heard it. Doesn’t mean that I’m not or we’re not going to hear it. But the Lord gave me Payload.
In a decade we’re going to see our enemies destroyed. He is bringing the Payload of the Word of God stored within you to take out the enemy. You are carrying a Payload to drop out of the heavenly realm for victory. It’s a God word.
:4 Gideon and his three hundred men, exhausted yet keeping up the pursuit, came to the Jordan and crossed it. He said to the men of Sukkoth, ‘Give my troops some bread; they are worn out, and I am still pursuing Zebah and Zalmunna, the kings of Midian.’
:6 But the officials of Sukkoth said, ‘Do you already have the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna in your possession? Why should we give bread to your troops?’ Then Gideon replied, ‘Just for that, when the Lord has given Zebah and Zalmunna into my hand, I will tear your flesh with desert thorns and briers.’
:8 From there he went up to Peniel (the Face) and made the same request of them, but they answered as the men of Sukkoth had. So he said to the men of Peniel, ‘When I return in triumph, I will tear down this tower.’
So now he’s got an edge. He’s gone from not knowing who he was to knowing who he is, and he’s moving through the land. He is inviting people into the battle, into the war with him, to be part of the victory, to be a part of taking out the enemy. But they are not willing to go all the way. Why can’t you just be satisfied with this?
Do not be satisfied until every enemy that has come against you and your house, that head is cut off and they are finished. And don’t stop there. Everything that enemy has plundered, stolen from you—time, resources, relationships—demand it back. You don’t just war for nothing. You’re warring for plunder, to plunder the pits of hell. Give it back. And satan will let you have victory. He’ll let you take out an enemy. But when you start taking stuff that he has taken, your stuff back, he won’t like it. So take your stuff back.
:10 Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor with a force of about fifteen thousand men, all that were left of the armies of the eastern peoples; a hundred and twenty thousand swordsmen had fallen.
:11 Gideon went up by the route of the nomads east of Nobah and Jogbehah and attacked the unsuspecting army. Zebah and Zalmunna, the two kings of Midian, fled, but he pursued them and captured them, routing their entire army.
:13 Gideon son of Joash then returned from the battle by the Pass of Heres.
I need to do a word search. I know all these words have a meaning significant to the story.
He caught a young man of Sukkoth and questioned him, and the young man wrote down for him the names of the seventy-seven officials of Sukkoth, the elders of the town. (I’m taking names! This is serious business. Their name was on a list.)
Then Gideon came and said to the men of Sukkoth, ‘Here are Zebah and Zalmunna, about whom you taunted me by saying, “Do you already have the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna in your possession? Why should we give bread to your exhausted men?”’
You can cut off the hand of the enemy, but until you take off the head of the enemy, he has still got function.
:16 He took the elders of the town and taught the men of Sukkoth a lesson by punishing them with desert thorns and briers.
I’m gonna give you a whipping.
:17 He also pulled down the tower of Peniel and killed the men of the town. Then he asked Zebah and Zalmunna, ‘What kind of men did you kill at Tabor?’ ‘Me like you,’ they answered, ‘each one with the bearing of a prince.’
Now his true identity is coming out. What are these men recognizing him as? He had said, I’m the least. My family is the least. He now sees, I have the bearing of a prince. It’s time for king priests to rise up in your gates and take possession. It’s time for the sons of God, that would be every person in this room that is born-again, you are a son of God. You are called to sit at the table of the King. God in heaven is our Father.
I had to read it out loud yesterday. It was posted on facebook. There were two little boys about four years old. One asked the other, Are you related to anyone important or famous? The other little boy dropped his head and said, I heard my Dad say the other day that God was his father.
You’re related to God, who made the heavens and the earth, who created the universe. And we are born of his Spirit, and his DNA and his authority, and his anointing, and his ability is living on the inside of you and me. And he’s saying, It’s time for the prince to arise.
:19 Gideon replied, ‘Those were my brothers, the sons of my own mother. As surely as the Lord lives, if you had spared their lives, I would not kill you.’ Turning to Jether, his eldest son, he said, ‘Kill them!’ But Jether did not draw his sword, because he was only a boy and was afraid.
:21 Zebah and Zalmunna said, ‘Come, do it yourself. “As is the man, so is his strength.”’ So Gideon stepped forward and killed them, and took the ornaments off their camels’ necks.
:22 The Israelites said to Gideon, ‘Rule over us—you, your son and your grandson—because you have saved us from the hand of Midian.’ But Gideon told them, ‘I will not rule over you, nor will my son rule over you. The Lord will rule over you.’
So when you come out and you are victorious and people are going to want you to rule over them, the Lord is the only one that’s going to rule. It’s really the truth. People are seeking power and position. But you’ll have power and position when the Lord rules over you.
And he said, ‘I do have one request, that each of you give me an earring from your share of the plunder.’ (It was the custom of the Ishmaelites to wear gold earrings.)
:25 They answered, ‘We’ll be glad to give them.’ So they spread out a garment, and each of them threw a ring from his plunder onto it. The weight of the gold rings he asked for came to seventeen hundred shekels, not counting the ornaments, the pendants and the purple garments worn by the kings of Midian or the chain’s that were on their camels’ necks.
The point is this. The Lord is raising up an army, and you are it. So healing and deliverance and restoration and restitution has come into the house of God today.
Isaiah 49:7 This is what the Lord says—the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel—to him who was despised and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of rulers: ‘Kings will see you and stand up, princes will see and bow down, because of the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.’
This is what the Lord says, ‘In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign the desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, “Come out,” and to those in darkness, “Be free!”
This is where we are.
Every portion I read out of Gideon’s account was necessary and needed. I want you to close your eyes and let the Lord reset and reestablish you in himself. Today right here right now, every word, every song, every sound that has been released in this house from the very beginning, whether you were here or not, Holy Spirit, Come and do all that you can do. No limits. No holdouts. No holdups.
Father, in the name of Jesus, let the curse of Midianite be broken off of our lives. Lord, some have not been in this for just a seven year cycle, some have been in a 21 year cycle. Others for 14 years, others for 3 years, every different place, but there has been a devouring. Devouring.
Almighty God, heavenly Father, we proclaim that you are the God of Time. Time is the first thing you created on the first day. Therefore it is the first fruits of your creation, and the first fruits of everything is dedicated to you. Thereby, it is made holy. So we proclaim, that since we as your sons and daughters, as your people, your intent was that we walk in holy time. It is not your intent that the seasons of our lives be devoured.
Yet Lord, we acknowledge that the defilement and the devouring is our own fault. And Lord, we ask that you open up the books of our lives and in our family lines where we have rejected and renounced and even now, Lord, we reject and renounce the spirit of control in every branch of our family line. Lord, we repudiate and we break off the spirit of fatherlessness that has kept some of our forefathers from possessing their birthright.
Lord, we reject the god of comfort and security. And we proclaim that you are able to give tremendous comfort to your people when we possess our birthright; and we confess, reject, and renounce the deception from the enemy that is the right of us to postpone rejecting our birthright until a more convenient time, putting off for tomorrow what we should do today.
So Lord, we thank you for a Holy Ghost reset in time. Lord, we reject and renounce running ahead of your time and behind your time. We ask you to cleanse us in our generational lines of these iniquities, every place we have given to a Midianite and an Amalekite spirit, to a Baal structure. We ask you, Father, to take the Midianite curse off of our lives and off of our families, physically and spiritually, off of our seed. We nail that curse the cross of Jesus and we render it null and void. That those ungodly cycles will be completely broken off.
And Father, we proclaim and declare our total dependance on you. And Lord, in the same breath we acknowledge that our flesh is weak, and we remind you that the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. So we ask that you rise up in us in such a way by your Spirit that we are crucified with Christ, and we no longer live, but Christ lives in us, and the life we live in the body we live by the faith of the Son of God.
We reckon the old man dead and buried, and we acknowledge that we have been raised to a new life. And Lord, we thank you that you have called us to walk by faith, and we want to be totally dependent on you to walk in the Spirit and by the Spirit. Lord, I decree and declare and make known before this congregation today on our behalf, before heaven, that we want to possess our birthrights and our destinies. And any place that we have had fear or we’ve had a history of seeking comfort, or settling, or not entering in with our whole hearts and surrendering to you, Lord, we confess it as sin.
Just as you did the miracle for Gideon and you sustained him when nobody would sustain him, Lord, we ask you to sustain us. We ask you to come again today and create in us a pure heart, oh God. Renew a steadfast spirit within us. Take not your presence from us or your Holy Spirit. But grant us a willing spirit today, to sustain us and to propel us into this new season.
Sustain us so that we can pursue our birthrights and our destinies. Sustain us when the world doesn’t understand. Sustain us. And Lord, we proclaim our total dependence on you, and we ask that you save us. Not only from the enemy but save us from ourselves.
And now Father, at every place in which the enemy used the curse of the Midianites, where you desire to release blessings, let your will be done; let your kingdom come; let full restoration come unto your people today. We ask that the blessings which you decreed for us individually will be released in the season which you decreed.
Father, we ask that you will protect us and even Israel from the evil one. And that you will bring your people and even Israel into true spiritual liberty from the curse of the Midianites, and the curses of the enemies in that land.
We ask, Lord, for generational deliverance today. We stand before you and Lord, I thank you for bringing us out of captivity, for realigning us, for realigning us spirit, soul, body, and making us one with you. That every assignment and seeding of the enemy be bound, broken, uprooted, torn down, destroyed, and complete overthrown from our lives.
That we leave out of this place in liberty and freedom like we’ve not experienced heretofore. That all strife and every evil work of the enemy be removed from us and our families, and that full restitution, restoration, and recovery come to us in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
You have an opportunity between now and the Head of the Year. This is not putting off what you need to do today. But he is going to come regularly, daily, to meet with you and bring more deliverance. To show you every place the enemy has gained ground. He is bringing you into a Joshua 3 place and he is offering you a governmental authority in the heavenly realm, and to take your place.
So Father, again, I bless everyone watching and those here, with the Fullness of all that you have ordained for us in this season in Jesus mighty name. Amen and Amen. Hallelujah.
