The Power of Praise and Worship   Leave a comment

THE POWER OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP – Andrew Wommack Ministries

Luke 19:39-40 "And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

LUKE 19:29-40

There is nothing wrong with praising God. It is encouraged and commanded thousands of times in the scriptures. The reason the Pharisees were so upset was because they didn’t accept Jesus as God. Indeed, it would be blasphemy for Jesus to accept worship if He wasn’t God. This is another confirmation of the deity of Christ.

Only Luke records this instance of the Pharisees’ objection and Jesus’ answer. This was the triumphant entry of Israel’s King that was prophesied and anticipated for centuries. The excitement could not be contained. If people refused to praise Him, the creation would have broken out in spontaneous praise. No rock should have to do what God created us to do.

By compiling all of the writers’ accounts of what the multitudes were saying, we have this record: "Hosanna to the Son of David" (Mt. only). "Blessed is he" ("the King"–Lk.; "the King of Israel"–Jn.) "that cometh in the name of the Lord. Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that cometh in the name of the Lord" (Mk. only). "Hosanna in the highest" (Mt. and Mk. only). "Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest" (Lk. only).

Pride was what caused Satan’s original sin according to Isaiah 14:12-14. He wanted to be like the most High. One thing reserved for God alone is worship, and the devil has always sought that. If he can’t be the one to receive worship, then he seeks to turn others away from giving true worship to the most High God. This is the reason why praise and worship to the Lord are such powerful tools against Satan. He can’t stand to see God worshiped. Worship Him with all of your heart today.

The Road to Emmaus – Luke 24:13-27   Leave a comment

Please watch this awesome 30 minute movie concerning two disciples encounter with our Master, Teacher, Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=vepBqHvZ0Xs#!

Luke 24:13-27 (NKJV);

The Road to Emmaus

13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him. 17 And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?” 18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?” 19 And He said to them, “What things?” So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened. 22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us. 23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive. 24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.” 25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

MERRY CHRISTMAS   Leave a comment

Today is the day set aside to celebrate Jesus’s birth. He came on earth to be the New Covenant between us and our Father. Without Jesus, there would be no way to the Holy, Heavenly Father. Jesus is our Mediator; He is our Redeemer; He is the Messiah; He is Immanuel (God with us); He is Lord and risen Savior. Jesus came so none would perish, so let’s use His example and walk in Love, Grace and Mercy. As we think about gifts, let’s give Him to everyone, even our enemies. Let’s give His Love, Grace and Mercy. Let’s forgive others of doing us wrong. Let’s remember their sins no more as He does for all mankind. Let’s say what He did on the Cross – “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” The Lord’s disciples Stephen followed in His example by saying “Lord, lay not this sin to their charge” as he laid dying for ministering the Gospel to those who killed him. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving. So for the rest of the year and your lives, please give the most powerful gift you can give, JESUS. Be blessed in Him, always.  

Isaiah 9:6; For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Hebrews 8:7-13; 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

Hebrews 10:11-18; 11 And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. 15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before, 16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

 

Word of God on Breakthrough, Expectation,   Leave a comment

This was a Word I received from the Lord on October 1, 2012 which I posted on a previous blog. I believe the Lord led me to read this again because earlier this morning I heard the Holy Spirit tell me about how the power God is to be used in His people to be a witness to the world, which is mentioned in this Word. Over the last couple of months, I have forgotten this Word because I allowed the “cares of life” to take it from me. I allowed persecution to take it from me. I allowed satan to take it from me. I hope I learned from my past mistakes and not allow evil to take the Word of God from me, again. I thank the Lord Jesus for His grace when we fall. Please read and discern for yourselves. Be blessed in Jesus.

Word of God from 10/1/2012:

I was laying in the bed and talking with the Lord Jesus on certain matters. Some of what the Lord said to me was “expectation” and “two-leaved gate”. The two-leaved gate are double doors.Then when I got up to check my email, I received this message of confirmation from Faith Tabernacle. It confirmed my conversation with the Lord minutes before.

Isaiah 45:1-3 (KJV); Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

Isaiah 45:1-3 (NKJV); “Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held—To subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut: ‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS: http://ft111.com/thetrumpet.htm

I’m calling to you today. This is a moment in time when the depth of My Spirit calls to the depth of your spirit. It is a time of preparation, a time of expectation. Indeed, it is a new era. I am bringing forth the power of My church and it shall be seen and it shall be witnessed in the whole of the earth. For, many do not think I have a people, but I say to you that I have always had a people. I’ve had a few hidden away here in small places, a few hidden away there in small places. But, My voice is now calling to those who belong to Me, calling you out of the world, calling you out of the power of your own self destruction, calling you into the kingdom of light and life. I am calling you to walk with angels and to see beyond the natural. For, I have opened wide the double doors on the valley of vision and I am sending My people forth that you may see, hear and understand Me and My purposes for each one in this time frame. Let the hallelujah’s rise up within your spirit in the night vision. Let the amen’s come forth as I come to bear witness to your spirit. Do not deny Me for you belong to Me. You have been bought with a price, the price of the blood of Christ. You do not belong to the world. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood. You are those who have been saved for this, the end of the age, so that I can demonstrate through you the power of My kingdom, says the Holy Lord God Almighty.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: http://ft111.com/smallstraws.htm

I kept hearing the word breakout in my spirit, and the Lord said: This is an opportune time to break free from bondages that have kept you from the liberty, both spiritually and physically, that I have intended. I have released a special anointing for this purpose, but you must choose to take advantage of this time to be done with things that have held you in captivity. John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Again, prior to reading this email and still praying, I was speaking against sin in my life that’s been holding me bondage for too long. As I was speaking against them, I began to feel a relief. I also began to release myself to the Lord. Not just releasing myself, but believing in my Savior, Jesus Christ. He died for me, He died for us to be free from ALL bondage. Last week the Lord woke me us to this scripture; John 3:16; For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever BELIEVES in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” I always thought I was a believer of Jesus Christ because I stated Romans 10:9-10; “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Based on stating this scripture, I became saved. But I didn’t realize I had to believe everything in His Word. I only believed part of the time and I only believed part of the Word. Somewhere between the time I gave my life to Him, I got caught up in the teachings from men and their traditions and not the Words of my Lord Jesus. When we believe in Him we are to believe EVERYTHING. We have to believe what He tells us in the Word of God. We have to believe and see ourselves no longer a slave to sin, but a slave to righteousness. I make that confession in faith that I am no longer a slave to sin, but a slave to righteousness. Again, while praying and speaking these things, I felt a mind change come over me. I began to speak what’s in HIS WORD. I also began to have a mind change because for too long I have allowed so many people to hold me back from my purpose in Him because of their mindset and their “tradition of men opinions.” Because they don’t see who the Lord made me, I began to war with the truth about me and what they perceived, which was a lie. As I mentioned above, while praying I heard the Lord tell me expectation. I have to expect change to take place in my life. I cannot believe what man say about me if it’s contrary to what the Lord says. My life IS NOT in man’s hands no more, nor is it in satan’s hands, but it’s in the Hands of the Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior and King. THAT’S FREEDOM. As children of God, we have to accept our true Kingdom in our True and Living King. We have to accept the prosperity Jesus has for us which is not found in riches. The true riches is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). When we are faithful to the true riches, we can have earthly money so it can be used for the Kingdom of Christ. There are people who’s hungry. Fill their belly and we’ll be able to reach them to fill their spirits with the Word of God. There are people needing clothes. Give them natural clothing, then they will be able to hear when we give them the Gospel which will cloth them with righteousness. When God transfers the money from the wicked which is laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22), we are to use it for His Kingdom; not for selfish reasons. When we begin to speak the truth, people in the churches will say we speak blasphemy. That’s what they said to Jesus. They wanted to kill Him because He spoke the truth.

We have been living a lie far too long. We have been believing satan’s lies for too long. If we want the truth, go to the Bible and read the truth. Truth is real, lies are false, fake, unreal. Believing satan is living in an unreal world and living in lies. We believe him when we love money, cars, jobs, people over our Creator, our Lord, God. We believe him when he tells us things that are contrary to God’s Word. We believe satan when we accept those ungodly thoughts he puts in our mind like, we are homosexual, or adultery, we are sick, we are whores/harlots, etc. We believe him when we have low self-esteem and do things to make ourselves feel good instead of believing the Word of God concerning our lives. We believe him when we feel we don’t have to examine ourselves. The Bible tells us even the very elect will be deceived; so WHY NOT examine yourself and allow the Lord show you your heart. When we give in to all those evil thoughts, we say we believe satan over the One who died for us; JESUS. The only way to know and get this truth is through Jesus Christ. He said in John 14:6; “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” It’s time that we realize who we truly are in the Lord and believe HIM and stop believing the lies. We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37). We are a chosen generation, royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9-10; But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.) We are healed. We are the true tabernacle, so stop giving yourself over to satan to defile the temple of God. That devil, satan DID NOT DIE FOR ME. That deceiver did not die for you. Why should we be slaves to him any longer. Accept your place in God TODAY. Don’t look at your titles/positions in the church or the community. Don’t look at your works. Don’t even look at all the money you gave the church (Matthew 23:23). These things are fine and dandy, but they WILL NOT make you holy. Stop believing the lies of satan and believe the truth about who you really are. You are not worth a million dollars; You are not worth the most expensive car; You are not worth a great career or even a big house. Sadly, too many hold stock in these as great benefits from God for Godly living. Our worth isn’t found in these things; It found in JESUS CHRIST. Found in our RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ; Who Died for US. This is worth far more than any amount of money.

There is a breakthrough coming forth and I pray we all receive it. When thinking about breakthrough, I think about the fast laid out in Isaiah 58. I have went on fast based on the teachings I was given. Until recently, I realize those fast were godly. I’d make my list out and most of the things were selfish. However, at the time I didn’t know. I didn’t fast for the true riches of Jesus Christ. The fast in Isaiah 58 is a fast that pleases God where there are results (SEE BELOW). We need to get away from going on a fast where we make out a list, as if going shopping; primarily focused on worldly goods and not the goods received from righteousness. The enemy, satan is crafty and cunning and he can give you earthly things. That devil does that to deceive us and make us think we are serving Jesus and are actually serving him; unknowingly. When was the last time you discerned something you received and asked the Lord was this from Him? We get these things and get excited and automatically think it’s from God. I’m not saying God don’t bless us with things, but we have to use wisdom and ask the Lord if it’s from Him. I’ve had several good paying jobs over the years. Each one I WAS NOT happy. It was later after the Lord took them all away that I was able to hear from Him. He told me those jobs were not from Him. Proverbs 10:22; “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.” So when you fast, put away those list of things and fast according to Isaiah 58. There are some people that may give you a gift (money, car, house, etc.) and you may feel it’s a blessing. But it actually something used to buy you and have deceptive motives. I know of a woman (that has a jezebel spirit controlling her) gave a car to someone in the church who was struggling financially. But the Lord told me her motives for giving away that car were ungodly. The spirit in her knew some discerned the demons in her and wanted to throw them off. I almost fell for it myself until I received that warning from the Lord. That’s when I learned how cunning and crafty satan truly is. Not only after that gift did she deceive more people, the woman she gave the car to became more blind than before. Before that she was near her breakthrough. So when we fast for things, we open ourselves up for deception. The Word of God tells us to seek Him first (Matthew 6:33; But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you). The previous verses says Matthew 6:19-21; Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Isaiah 58:3-9; ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?’ “In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exploit all your laborers. Indeed you fast for strife and debate, and to strike with the fist of wickedness. You will not fast as you do this day, to make your voice heard on high. Is it a fast that I have chosen, a day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush, and to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Would you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord? “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’

In this fast there are eight things to fast for:

1. To Loose the Bond of Wickedness

2. To Undo the Heavy Burdens

3. To Let the Oppressed Go Free

4. That You Break Every Yoke

5. To Share Your Bread with the Hungry

6. That You Bring To Your House the Poor Who Are Cast Out

7. When You See the Naked, That You Cover Him

8. Not Hide Yourself from Your Own Flesh

When we do this type of fast, which pleases God THEN: Your Light Shall Break Forth Like the Morning; Your Healing Shall Spring Forth Speedily; Your Righteousness Shall Go Before You; The Glory of the Lord Shall Be Your Rear Guard; Then You Shall Call and the Lord Will Answer; You Shall Cry and He Will Say, “Here I Am”. It DOES NOT mention anything like a house, a car, a job, more money. It’s all about liberty and freedom. Freedom comes also when you help others. You become free and they do also. That is worth more than a million dollars.

It’s awesome how the Lord uses numbers in His Word. There are eight things to fast for. The number eight means “New Beginnings (breakthrough); Liberty in the Spirit (breakthrough); Dying to Self (breakthrough); Jesus Transfigured on 8th day (breakthrough for us); Jesus rose from the dead on the 8th day (more breakthrough for us – HALLELUJAH TO THE LAMB OF GOD); the Number of Salvation when eight souls were saved from the flood-1 Peter 3:20 (YES breakthrough for us).

When I look at this fast, I see Jesus Christ and what He taught the disciples. What He is teaching us, even today. It’s time to start living in the Truth and the reality of life and stop living lies, the unreal life of satan. Be blessed in Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 10:2; Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.

Proverbs 10:15; The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.

Matthew 6:25-34; “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

 

 

You Are Going To Have To Laugh On The Battlefield With Me   Leave a comment

“You Are Going To Have To Laugh On The Battlefield With Me”

I dreamed of fresh severe persecution breaking out against all of the saints that are true, and that are on the spiritual battlefields of the world right now. As I was dreaming, I heard the Lord audibly say, “You are going to have to laugh on the battlefield with Me.”

I then woke up and heard: “You are going to have to laugh on the battlefield with Me. For I am beginning to rise up greater within you, and also in your midst, and because of My rising, and because of My deeper workings, you will have to laugh, and you will have to shake off all of the counter attacks, and all of the persecutions that will come with My new emerging around you, and also in your life. Whenever I am seen and heard, there will be a gnashing and grinding of teeth and an exposing of hearts. This is a sign that My works are having an effect, and also that I am breaking through the exterior hardness, to get to the deep inner workings of the heart of the matter. I am after the hearts and the minds of My People, and in My doing the deeper things, there will be adverse reactions and negative outbursts that will erupt because of it. But this is necessary to dislodge all of the hidden works of darkness that have bound them. I love My People enough to bring them through the storms into the Truth, and I love them enough to uncover what is hidden, to bring it all into My Light, so that they might gain real sight. So you are going to have to weather the storms with Me, and you are going to have to love the unlovely, until they become more like Me. You are on the battlefield with Me.”

“I am doing a great, deep, and even shocking thing in the earth. I am uncovering everything that hinders, everything that blinds, and that everything resists My True Purposes for My People in this hour. This includes anything within your own selves as well as those things also around you. I am after a pure People! So I am in full battle gear in your midst, and I am warring a great war! It shall increase even more! I tell you now, ahead of time, so that you will stand firmly and not fear! I tell you also so that you will not be dismayed at all that will be arrayed in the coming days. I tell you so that you will not lash out at those that strike out all around you, but recognize it for what it is, and choose to forgive, and choose to love with My Love. For great darkness shall arise with hatred in its mouth and in its eyes, but this is to be no surprise! No! It is only a revealing of its disguise! The darkness will be revealed everywhere, even within My House, even within My People, and even within the world. My Glory is at work! My Glory will expose all, will deal with all, and will also save all that want to be free from it. I will defeat the darkness in their lives if they will cry out to Me. But you will have to stand, and even laugh when it rises up to meet you and Me. You cannot look at it, nor take it in to yourself, but you will have to look at Me! You will have to be unmovable, unshakeable, and even fearless in the coming days. Turmoil shall increase with the emergence of My Peace.”

“In My Glory there is My Peace, and in My Peace is also My full Release. This is what causes the evil to surface within men, for that which binds them hates My Peace. My Peace crushes the head of satan, and when I am seen, all that is hidden hates Me! Recognize this, and know that it is My War, and you are on the battlefield with Me! I have come to set men free, and I shall do it with you, and with each of My People that are walking with Me! My Glory is at work! I am shaking everything that is confident in it’s own self and in it’s own strength! I am after the deepest of roots and I am after the deepest of fruits! Watch, as I shake even more, for I am going to the cores! This New Year will break forth with greater War, but this is My War! I am coming to set men free! I am on the battlefield of men’s soul’s and of men’s heart’s! You must know this is Me, and when you see the great battle raging in the souls, and in the heart’s, then you will know it is Me, and you will know what to do, and not to take it personally! Know that it is Me, and labor in My fields with Me! Love the unlovely. Love the mean. Love the vile. Love the cruel. Love the unjust. Love the revilers. Love the accusers. Love the mockers. Love the haters. Love the boastful. Love the ones that curse you. Love them with Me, and know My Joy through the war with Me”

“In My Love there is Joy, a very deep Wellspring of Joy and of Life! Know that I will flow through you, to carry you through every storm! Just as I am not moved by storms, so neither shall you be either, if you will listen to Me and take My Hand in the coming frays! I have a higher wage for you, and you will be fully paid! You will reap the benefits of My Love, the benefits of My Mercy, the benefits of My Grace, the benefits of My Strength, the benefits of My Vision, the benefits of My Life and the benefits of My Light in the greater fight! I have a multitude of souls reserved for you! I have assigned many fields to you in the coming days and years! You will reap them with Me in Love’s Tears, as you battle with Me in the Spirit Realm and pray! Bring them before Me in prayer and watch Me move! Sow your seeds of prayer in the Spirit, and as you water them in Love’s Compassion in prayer with Me, you shall surely see them in the natural realm get set free! See them through Me! See the situations through Me! See the battle through Me! Know that the goal is victory!”

“My Government is fully at work in your midst. I am opening up everything that has been closed. I am also closing everything that has been open. I am stirring up the spiritual lethargy that has kept many of My People from the battlefields. I am also breaking the back of fear that has paralyzed My People, and has kept them from rising to their rightful places in Me! I will have a violent and fiercely righteous army! I will have an uncompromising army! So I am going to unmask the enemy! I am going to unveil all that presents itself as Me, and I am going to strip all false authority from before Me! I am after true sincerity and true humility! I am after clean hands and pure hearts! So the greater battle now starts! Check your hearts Children! Let no anger, let no bitterness, let no guile, and let no accusation be found in you, for I tell you ahead of time, the battle is Mine! Take out My Oil! Take out My Wine! Pour out My Spirit upon all that shall come, and see My Hand work greatly! You shall rejoice in the spoils that will come! I will transform this generation in a great, great work, and you must see it for what it is now, before the full fury comes, so that you will stand and rejoice in the great salvation that I will work! The darkness shall flee in terror before you! The enemy shall fail in all it’s attempts to defeat you! I am the Greater One in you, and also around you! Stand still, and see the Salvation of your God! Stand still, and see the Harvest fields and My extended Rod! It is Me! I am setting the Captives free! See them as Me! See them as free! See them through the eyes of Victory with Me!”

It is a time to laugh in the face of adversity! It is a time to laugh in the face of the battle with Me! It is a time to laugh at the darkness, and to laugh at the death at work all around you, and know that it shall break in My Holy Quake! Yes! I sit in the heavens and laugh, but you are to also sit with Me and laugh too! Know that I sit in your heart, in your soul, and in your life, so you must draw even more from Me! Draw from Me, draw from My Joy in the midst of adversity! Draw from My Strength, that will rise up to you when you drink! Learn to flow in My Deeper Flows, and enter into My Rest, even in the battles that come to attempt to steal My Best! No weapon forged against you shall prosper, but you must know this! You must enforce this! You must position yourself in this! You must loose My Joy in this, and you shall see the workings of the enemy fall utterly before you in victory! It is a Day of Victory! It is a Time of Joy and of Spoil for My People who will properly position themselves now! Those who do not, will suffer great turmoil and agony of heart and soul in the battles ahead. This is why I tell you now, so that you can laugh through the battles successfully with Me! Know that I am with you! Know that I am for you! Know that what you see currently arrayed against you, and arrayed around you is not the true, but it will be shaken more and shall be defeated to the core, and you shall laugh through it all even more! I am the God of War! I am the God of Love! I am the God of Peace! I am here to wage war in the darkness with you! I shall break all things through! I shall reveal Myself to you! In this New Year, I have a Glorious Harvest all arranged for you!”

Scriptures:

Psalms 2:1 WHY DO the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise) an empty scheme? 2 The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say, 3 Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us. 4 He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them]. 5 He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, saying, 6 Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly] on My holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You. 8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters’ ware. 10 Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him]. 12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!

John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

Hebrews 3:6 But Christ (the Messiah) was faithful over His [own Father’s] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members] of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ].

Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

Revelations 12:5 And she brought forth a male Child, One Who is destined to shepherd (rule) all the nations with an iron staff (scepter), and her Child was caught up to God and to His throne.

Revelations 19:15 From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).

For further study:
Proverbs 16:21 The wise in heart are called prudent, understanding, and knowing, and winsome speech increases learning [in both speaker and listener]. 22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to those who have it, but to give instruction to fools is folly. 23 The mind of the wise instructs his mouth, and adds learning and persuasiveness to his lips.

Hebrews 13:6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? 7 Remember your leaders and superiors in authority [for it was they] who brought to you the Word of God. Observe attentively and consider their manner of living (the outcome of their well-spent lives) and imitate their faith (their conviction that God exists and is the Creator and Ruler of all things, the Provider and Bestower of eternal salvation through Christ, and their leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness). 8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages).

Acts 4:1 AND WHILE they [Peter and John] were talking to the people, the high priests and the military commander of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, 2 Being vexed and indignant through and through because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in [the case of] Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 So they laid hands on them (arrested them) and put them in prison until the following day, for it was already evening. 4 But many of those who heard the message believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on Jesus as the Christ). And their number grew and came to about 5,000. 5 Then on the following day, their magistrates and elders and scribes were assembled in Jerusalem, 6 Including Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John and Alexander and all others who belonged to the high priestly relationship. 7 And they set the men in their midst and repeatedly demanded, By what sort of power or by what kind of authority did [such people as] you do this [healing]? 8 Then Peter, [because he was] filled with [and controlled by] the Holy Spirit, said to them, Rulers of the people and members of the council (the Sanhedrin), 9 If we are being put on trial [here] today and examined concerning a good deed done to benefit a feeble (helpless) cripple, by what means this man has been restored to health, 10 Let it be known and understood by all of you, and by the whole house of Israel, that in the name and through the power and authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom you crucified, [but] Whom God raised from the dead, in Him and by means of Him this man is standing here before you well and sound in body. 11 This [Jesus] is the Stone which was despised and rejected by you, the builders, but which has become the Head of the corner [the Cornerstone]. 12 And there is salvation in and through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by and in which we must be saved. 13 Now when they saw the boldness and unfettered eloquence of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and untrained in the schools [common men with no educational advantages], they marveled; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus. 14 And since they saw the man who had been cured standing there beside them, they could not contradict the fact or say anything in opposition. 15 But having ordered [the prisoners] to go aside out of the council [chamber], they conferred (debated) among themselves, 16 Saying, What are we to do with these men? For that an extraordinary miracle has been performed by (through) them is plain to all the residents of Jerusalem , and we cannot deny it. 17 But in order that it may not spread further among the people and the nation, let us warn and forbid them with a stern threat to speak any more to anyone in this name [or about this Person]. 18 [So] they summoned them and imperatively instructed them not to converse in any way or teach at all in or about the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John replied to them, Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you and obey you rather than God, you must decide (judge). 20 But we [ourselves] cannot help telling what we have seen and heard. 21 Then when [the rulers and council members] had further threatened them, they let them go, not seeing how they could secure a conviction against them because of the people; for everybody was praising and glorifying God for what had occurred. 22 For the man on whom this sign (miracle) of healing was performed was more than forty years old. 23 After they were permitted to go, [the apostles] returned to their own [company] and told all that the chief priests and elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard it, lifted their voices together with one united mind to God and said, O Sovereign Lord, You are He Who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything that is in them, 25 Who by the mouth of our forefather David, Your servant and child, said through the Holy Spirit, Why did the heathen (Gentiles) become wanton and insolent and rage, and the people imagine and study and plan vain (fruitless) things [that will not succeed]? 26 The kings of the earth took their stand in array [for attack] and the rulers were assembled and combined together against the Lord and against His Anointed (Christ, the Messiah). 27 For in this city there actually met and plotted together against Your holy Child and Servant Jesus, Whom You consecrated by anointing, both Herod and Pontius Pilate with the Gentiles and peoples of Israel, 28 To carry out all that Your hand and Your will and purpose had predestined (predetermined) should occur. 29 And now, Lord, observe their threats and grant to Your bond servants [full freedom] to declare Your message fearlessly, 30 While You stretch out Your hand to cure and to perform signs and wonders through the authority and by the power of the name of Your holy Child and Servant Jesus. 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were assembled was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they continued to speak the Word of God with freedom and boldness and courage.

Power of Prayer   Leave a comment

 

Good morning,

Just want to share a testimony with those of you that may be experiencing an attack by the enemy.

Yesterday was a hard day in the spirit. The enemy attacked me in the area of praying. By the time I went to bed, I was delivered. The Lord ministered to me through this video on prayer. I didn’t just look at the video, but I read the scriptures. When I went to pray before bed I was in faith and believed in the things I prayed for will be answered. No matter what we are faced with today, Jesus will bring us through it. The key is, we have to allow Him and do the things He instructs us or lead us to do. I found if I just say yes, He gives me the strength to do it. I don’t have faith in my ability to do even a simple task. It was hard for me to believe, but I asked Him for the strength to just do what He said. He told me to praise Him so me and my grand-daughter danced to Him (you’ll see her at the end of the video). He told me to read the scriptures in this video, which I did. The Word of God is so powerful. It gave me the victory in the end from our enemy satan. No matter what you are faced with today, stay with our Savior, Jesus and in the end you will have the victory. Praying for all who read this. Please pray for me and my family also.

The title of the song is "Power of Pray" by Ben Ketting from the Children of Light.

Be blessed in Him, always.

Psalm 98:1; A Psalm. Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

1 John 5:4; For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

1 Corinthians 15:50-58; Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
