Anna Love. The Finest Hour – History Unfolding
My word for the year is Surrender. I was thinking I would unpack what it meant to really surrender to the Lord. Surrender is a part of this and it’s a great thing when we surrender. It should already be a part of our walk. You’re in this room because this word is going to affect your life from this point forward. This is not hype. It’s about how important things are right now. I know everyone is in a different season of life right now—students, career women, wives, mothers, grandmothers—different stages. This word applies to every person from the youngest to the oldest.
The Finest Hour – History Unfolding
If you look at our world and the situations and circumstances going on, you would say it’s pretty dark, that things don’t look so good. But there’s always a light because we always have hope in Jesus. If you are born again, if you’ve accepted Jesus, then the light of the world lives on the inside of you. He’s calling you to be a light. We learn very early in our Christian walk, even as children, not to hide the light. The Lord is saying it’s time to let your light shine like you have never let it shine before.
Perhaps you’re the one in your sphere of influence. Perhaps you’re the one in your city. Perhaps you’re the one who will encounter a political leader and your voice is going to have influence. Perhaps you’re the one. Perhaps you’re feeling a nudging from the Lord to step out in faith and you hear it over and over and over again and you resist. Perhaps you’re the one who is going to bring change to a community. Perhaps you’re the one who is going to pray in the school where it keeps someone from committing suicide or from bullying. Perhaps you’re the one who has the prayer that puts an end to it.
It’s time to stop thinking, I live in a small city in Mississippi. I’m so insignificant. I love you, Jesus, but I couldn’t change the world. We’re all called to change the world in whatever degree the Lord has put inside of us. So tonight, this is your finest hour.
II Chronicles 20:15. This is what the Lord says to you: Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army, for the battle is not yours but God’s. That’s one thing we have to remember.
It says in Ephesians our battle is not against flesh and blood, but it’s against rulers and principalities and the darkness of this world. It’s a spiritual battle. And it’s greater than any war in history because it will determine everything.
If you look throughout these scriptures, and look at the United States in a natural sense, this would very much apply.
I John 2:18. Dear children, this is the last hour, and you have heard that the antichrist is coming. Even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know that it is the last hour.
I believe we are in a time and season where we’re seeing this. But know that we are also poised for a great awakening. Whenever the darkness rises, the Light just gets brighter. No matter what things look like, you have to hold onto that hope.
Even though we are in the last days, there is so much greater glory to come. We are in the days and moments and hours, and I would say the minutes and seconds of walking in this glory.
Romans 1:24 MSG. So God said in effect, If that’s what you want, that’s what you get. It wasn’t long before they were living in a pigpen, smeared with filth, fifty inside and out. And all this because they traded the true God for a fake god, and worshiped the god they made instead of the God who made them—the God we bless, the God who blesses us. Oh, Yes!
:26 Worse followed. Refusing to know God, they soon didn’t know how to be human either—women didn’t know how to be women, men didn’t know how to be men.
If you watch the news or you’re out in the world, you can see that we are in one of the biggest identity crises ever. People don’t know who they are. They don’t know how to identify themselves. They don’t know what they identify with. There’s so much confusion. And people are confused and coming up with new things to identify with. And it’s not the truth of God. It’s a lie.
:27 Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men—all lust, no love. And then they paid for it, oh, how they paid for it—emptied of God and love, godless and loveless wretches.
Since they didn’t bother to acknowledge God, God quit bothering them and let them run loose. And then all hell broke loose: rampant evil, grabbing and grasping, vicious backstabbing. They made life hell on earth with their envy, wanton killing, bickering, and cheating. Look at them: mean-spirited, venomous, fork-tongued God-bashers. Bullies, swaggers, insufferable windbags! They keep inventing new ways of wrecking lives. They ditch their parents when they get in the way. Stupid, slimy, cruel, cold-blooded. And it’s not as if they don’t know better. They know perfectly well they’re spitting in God’s face. And they don’t care—worse, they hand out prizes to those who do the worst things best!
This is an unfortunate thing. You can look at Rome and see a lot of correlations in our country right now.
Isaiah 60:2. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness over the peoples.
Right now I would say that you can see wickedness in a very tangible, in-your-face way in the United States of America. We, the Church, have failed in a lot of ways, because our voice was really heard for a long time and somewhere along the way we lost our voice. At some point along the way, someone small in that small, insignificant town decided, My voice doesn’t really count. Or, I don’t have to do that; somebody else will speak up. The Lord is saying, No! It’s time to reclaim your voice. To reclaim your righteous voice. To speak up when you know it matters. And follow that unction of the Holy Spirit.
I want to talk to you about war.
If you follow some of the prophetic voices in the country, then you might have heard this. Chuck Pierce said at the beginning of 2017 that we were in a three-year war season. He may have even extended that. But we are in a very real war. That doesn’t mean the Lord doesn’t want you to have joy or enjoy family. He wants those things. They are His heart.
But it’s so important that we remember we are in a war season. When you know you’re in a war season you’re going to operate differently. You’re going to take things seriously and the Lord is calling us to a serious place. And it’s time we, the Church, rise up in who we are.
The United States of America is in one of the greatest moral crises in history. We are in a war like no other. Yet, it is backed by the same vile spirit of wickedness that you see throughout the ages. What America does in the days ahead will not only determine the outcome of our nation, but the world as we know it.
As I was putting this together this morning, what kept stirring in me was that right now we’re in a place to see our nation turned around. And I would say that the hand of the Lord is so strong on our nation that we have started that turning process, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop. That means that it’s time to push forward and push like we’ve never pushed before. But what I was aware of and even convicted of is that if you’re a born-again person, then it is your duty, it is your obligation to pray for this country and for our leaders. And I have failed to do that like I need to. I think we could all say that we fail because we get fed up with what’s going on and we don’t even want to think about it or talk about it. We just want to get away from it because it’s such a big mess.
But the Lord is calling us to pray. To pray like we never have before. My call to you tonight is for that intercessor inside of you to rise up. You can say you’re not an intercessor, but we’re all called to pray. What I’m doing is putting a demand on that inside of you. Whether you already operate as an intercessor or if it’s something deep inside of you, the Lord wants to bring that out tonight.
The Finest Hour. The Lord started saying, you’re in the finest hour. It’s all about the moment. Just over and over to me these last two weeks. The finest hour. The finest hour. The finest hour. I was like, What does that mean? I know it’s an important time. But I kept hearing it. We all have that voice deep inside of us and we know. But I couldn’t get past this voice—this is the finest hour, over and over again.
Then I realized this is a war speech. This is from Winston Churchill’s war speech. In WWII, I believe it was around June when France had been defeated by Nazi Germany. Winston Churchill had a war speech. It could not say any better where we are right now.
“Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our institutions, and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island, or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed, and the life of the world may move forward into broad and sunlit uplands.
But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, and all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister and perhaps more prolonged by the lights of perverted Science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duty, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and Commonwealth lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, ‘This was their finest hour.’”
This is our Finest Hour. This is the Church’s Finest Hour. I don’t know the day or the time or the moment of the return of Jesus. I believe it’s going to be several hundred years, but what I do know is that your children and your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren and their children will say that you were alive in this time.
They’ll say, My mother was there. They’ll say, Her voice was heard. They’ll say, She had the prayer that broke us through. Because the bowls are tipping and who knows when that prayer is going to tip it right over.
It is time for us to break fear off of ourselves—what people think. Stop worrying about what you look like. If the Lord puts it in your heart and you feel unction, it’s time to move, because it is life or death. If we don’t move in this hour, it may not be a physical life or death, but in this hour, because it is our finest hour, if you don’t do what the Lord says, you may miss your destiny. That’s now important it is.
We can’t play church and be sweet. It’s not about losing the love of God because love is the most important thing. But we can’t tiptoe around issues. The Lord is saying it’s time to rise up in bold faith. When we rise up in bold faith, it’s holding onto Jesus and who He fully is. It’s holding onto the truth of God and not letting truth depart from our lips. It’s being unwavering about the things of this world. It’s coming up against the darkness and resisting and being the light. And as the darkness increases so does the light inside of you because Holy Spirit is going to raise you up out of it. It’s time. It’s our finest hour.
Proverbs 13:34. Righteousness exalts a nation.
Isaiah 60:2-3. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
The dawn is breaking. Things have looked dark. People have just wanted to pack up and go home. The Church has wanted to leave. Well, the dawn is breaking and the lights are coming back on in the Church. She is being seen. And it is so important that we represent the Lord well.
This is where we are. This is who you are.
Isaiah 37:31-32. Once more a remnant of the kingdom of Judah will take root below and bear fruit above. For out of Jerusalem will come a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.
That’s a promise. That is a great big promise. If you’re in this room tonight you’re part of the remnant. And you are rising and you’re coming out of hiding. And you have been prepared. Even if you feel unprepared, the Lord has prepared you and He will continue to prepare you. He will put the words in your mouth. He will put you on the right path. I have no doubt about it. He even sealed this with His zeal.
I want you to think about anything that you face, any circumstance in which you don’t know what to do, look at it like this. The zeal of the Lord is going out before you and it is accomplishing that thing for you before you ever step into it. It’s time to start taking God at His word. It’s time to start putting a demand on His word. It is written throughout the book all the promises. We need to get ‘can’t’ out of our vocabulary because God can do anything. It’s time we start putting the word on it and not only putting the word on it, but let the word run out before you. If you let the word run out before you, then it’s already taken care of before your feet ever get there.
I said the Lord wanted to bring out the intercessor on the inside of you. Let’s talk about a big intercessor in history. Rees Howells had a quote during World War II, “I want to know that the Holy Spirit is stronger than the devil in the Nazi system. This is the battle of the ages, and victory here means victory for millions of people.”
For the last two days I’ve been all over World War II. I knew there were prevalent things in that for tonight, but in researching—I love history so I remembered a lot—I saw that in World War II everything really hung in the balance. It wasn’t defeat and win and defeat and win. It was defeat, defeat, defeat, defeat, defeat. And things looked really bad.
But the Lord always had a remnant. He always has a remnant. You can look from Genesis to Revelation; you can look throughout our American history; you can look throughout the history of the world. The Lord always has a remnant.
I looked at Rees Howells’ life at different times. I think he’s awesome. Today, the Lord directed me to this article Matt Locket wrote. This is part of the call to you tonight. I hope this builds your faith and puts the ‘I can’ activation anointing in you.
“I want to know that the Holy Spirit is stronger than the devil in the Nazi system. This is the battle of the ages and victory here means victory for millions of people.” “This quote taken from the journals of Rees Howells during World War II captures an uncommon faith, prayer life, and vision the church desperately needs to rediscover today. God used Mr. Howells and the young people with him at the Bible College of Wales in a mighty way to shape international events and the destiny of nations through their prayers. The world was in crisis, and this company of faith-filled believers became intercessors fully committed to be part of the solution.”
Every great leader in their life of faith has learned one universal lesson. There is no short-cut. These kinds of leaders are not made in a day but on a daily basis. Rees Howells was no exception to the rule and he was led by the Holy Spirit to build a life of faith learned through experience. Big testimonies come through growing your faith through the small things of life as we demonstrate our willingness to listen to the Holy Spirit and follow wherever He leads.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1.
God loves the process of revealing Himself in our daily lives. But the fires of adversity must test us. Rees Howells would say, “You may preach anything and everything without proving anything which is nothing but spectacular fury.”
Faith must become substance before is becomes evidence. It is in the testing of our faith that we learn that God really is who He says that He is. We need experiential knowledge of God because theories are impossible to learn in the dark days. The Holy Spirit led Rees Howells into a life of faith built line upon line, experience upon experience. We just learn to recognize the leading of the Holy Spirit each day and respond by abiding in Him and His promises. Only an abiding faith can overcome the challenges to our obedience.
John 15:7-8. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and be proven to be My disciples.
Proving God in small things and then in larger things led to ever-increasing faith to stand in the face of insurmountable odds. One area of faith that was put to the test throughout Howells’ life was in the area of praying for the supernatural provision of finances. Unless you can prove God to answer in an emergency and in a test case, it is nothing but talk in a very big way. The old man can sound very convincing but he does not see his folly.
You can never exercise real faith for $100 unless you’ve proved God for $50, or $50 unless you’ve proved God for $20, or $10 unless you’ve proved God for $5. You only give mental ascent and imagine these things unless you’ve had an experience with God in the impossible. Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.
This simple growth process of faith led Howells to a greater and greater pursuit as he followed the Lord’s leading to a world that was about to erupt in two world wars. When I read about the life of this man I see simple but radical obedience. As the Holy Spirit would make His direction known to Rees, there would be an honest wrestling with the weakness of his flesh in order to enter into a life truly led by the Spirit. It says in Matthew 26:41, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
Whether we admit it or not, we are way too concerned about man’s opinion, our personal prosperity and an easier way of life that is free from danger. These fears are jagged obstacles in the path of obedience. Fear-based decisions actually increase the danger level of our lives though they are easily masqueraded as so-called wisdom. The safest place to be is in the center of God’s will. Again, this is just spectacular theory unless put to the test.
In 1915, Rees and his wife, Elizabeth, entered the Lord’s call to missions just as World War I had begun. Germany had declared the waters around Britain to be a zone of war and every ocean vessel was considered an enemy target. Two months before the Howells were set to embark for Africa, a German u-boat torpedoed and sunk the passenger ship. Can you imagine the widespread panic having to travel by ship with the unseen threat of German submarines lurking beneath the surrounding waves?
Here’s an account from the ship’s passage. As they departed from England, many other passengers were fearful that their ship would be sunk, but Rees assured all who needed it that God would protect them. To believe that God would guard their ship from German submarines and to publicly declare it to those who were afraid was a leap of faith that only few have taken. Another test came on the journey when the captain lost his nerve and feared for their safety. They continued to assure the captain of their safe passage through u-boat infested waters because God was taking them to Africa to serve Him.
How important it is to be obedient to the Lord and be in the center of His will. It not only impacts your life, it is likely that it impacts countless lives around you.
That’s what I was saying. How do you know you’re not that one? How do you know that your decision or your prayer or your stepping out in faith isn’t like a domino effect for the Lord? And all these lives and all these eyes and all these people watching you whether you realize it or not, you’re affecting them. You’re affecting your neighborhood. You’re affecting you city. You’re affecting your school, your job. Anywhere that you go, you have the opportunity to affect. I heard her (Betty) say before that the Lord wants to release a pandemic of His glory. He wants to release where it’s just spreading and spreading and spreading and people can’t get away from it, that it’s on you. So, step out.
In 1924, Rees Howells founded the Bible College of Wales with the aim of training and sending laborers into the harvest field who had learned not only theory but also a practical life of faith. Students were required to pray through for victory in their daily needs and burdens. Whether this was needed for a toothbrush or tuition, he taught them to pray.
This is an excerpt from Leonard Ravenfield. He gave insight into Rees’ life. He said, After I spoke in a session in the Bible School of Wales, Mrs. Howells called me for a private talk. We stood on the veranda of her home overlooking the beautiful bay. I can see her finger upheld as she said, “Many talk of my husband’s buying the place with a shilling or 14 cents in his pocket. What they forget is that he prayed 12 hours a day for 11 months to know the mind of God.” Brethren, that’s discipline.
The two dimensional promises written in the passages of your Bible have to take on three dimensional reality in your broken life in spite of your failures and weaknesses. We have to learn that God is love, God is a Father, God is a healer, and God is a provider. Each of these revelations demands a personal testimony of their proven truth. Without firsthand knowledge of the realities of faith there is lack of power. Heed the apostle Paul’s warning and resist becoming a person in the last days who is content in having the appearance of godliness but denying the power.
Not long after the school was established, God called Rees Howells into the ultimate walk of faith and obedience, the preaching of the Gospel to every creature, carrying out Mark 16:15. He became a man with a world vision. No sooner had he engaged his faith to see the task completed in his generation than evil dictators and wicked governmental systems arose to stop the Gospel’s advancement; thus World War II began.
What was created to be a training and sending center transformed into a company of faith-filled intercessors on their faces day after day, year after year, facing the crisis of war. Through it all, their vision remained—their ‘every creature’ vision. As they contended for God’s purposes in the earth and for global obstacles to be removed for the gospel to advance, however, their stories and testimonies of how they affected the world through their prayers are difficult to grasp unless you first understand their effective lives of faith, obedience and abiding.
Consider again the opening quote and hear the determined cry of a man whose faith and prayers expanded to include nations, world leaders, governmental systems and unreached people groups. Let the words impact your heart and create the same hunger for that kind of faith. Let’s follow the example of this humble man of God whose life has inspired thousands of intercessors around the globe. Dark clouds are forming on the horizon, yet the charge of the Kingdom remains the same—Go! God wants to raise up people who are fully committed to His work in spite of the challenges to come.
So, that’s where we are. That’s the call that we’re in today. That was a great example. I know it was long but I felt it was important for you to understand. The Lord is throwing all this stuff on him. He’s saying, I want you to start a ministry school. I want you to have a global ministry. I want you to reach unreached people. I want you to go go go go go. I know everyone’s been asked by the Lord to do something or something has made you uncomfortable, and there’s this back and forth; there’s this contending with the Lord.
Well, as soon as he answers the call and he feels like he can do it, that’s when World War II begins. Not only is it just him; he’s got this big following of people—many young people whose lives matter, who are in a time when they’re figuring out who they are and whose they are and what they’re doing. And this army rose up and they were on their face and they prayed. If you look at their lives and the people in this movement, because it was a movement, they didn’t cease from what they were doing. They still had lives and they still had responsibilities.
I’ve heard a lot of people say, and I’ve even been guilty of it, Well, I would love to do something like that but who has the time? How can you pray for all the hours or do whatever? You will do what’s important to you. Even if you’re praying or seeking the Lord, you don’t have to be drawn away into your secret place. You can be at work. You can be driving down the road. You can be pressing in and having an ear at all times.
II Chronicles 16:19. For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.
That’s one of the biggest things. We have to be committed. I feel like we’re in a season where the Lord is saying, Where does your commitment lie? Where does your heart lie? Because we’re going to do what’s important to us. We can say all the right things, but it’s time to put our faith into action.
Esther 4:14 AMP. For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish (since you did not help when you had the chance). And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this (and for this very purpose)?”
It’s so important that we step out, that we heed the voice of the Lord, that we make the most of the opportunities that He’s set before us. How do you know this wasn’t the very moment for that thing?
The Finest Hour. If you’re unsure what the finest hour means, these are some definitions:
1) Time of one’s greatest achievement.
2) A point in time or a relatively brief period of time when an especially distinguished, admirable, or effective set of actions is performed.
3) Period in a person’s life where he/she does his/her noblest deeds in life. Used especially in World War I and II, where thousands of soldiers answered their call of duty to their country.
This is our call of duty for the Kingdom of God. This is our call.
This is your moment. We are in a time where prophetic words, dreams, visions, and the like are coming into their fullness of time. This is your moment. Your defining moment…What you were made for. We are in a time to fulfill destiny and what is written in the books in heaven about us—individually, corporately, and as a nation.
There’s a call and there’s a price. There are three keys that the Lord gave me. The word He gave me for this year is Surrender. But the keys He showed me today are:
Keys: Submission, Surrender and Sacrifice
James 4:7 NIV. Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Job 11:13-15 CEV. Surrender your heart to God, turn to him in prayer, and give up your sins—even those you do in secret. Then you won’t be ashamed; you will be confident and fearless.
The Lord is looking for fully surrendered hearts.
Hebrews 13:15 NLT. Therefore, let us offer a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to His name.
Psalm 5:3 TPT. At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning l lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. I know that you, God, are never pleased with lawlessness, and evil ones will never be invited as guests in your house. Boasters collapse, unable to survive your scrutiny for your hatred of evildoers is clear. You will make an end of all those who lie. How you hate their hypocrisy and despise all who love violence!
:7 But I know that you will welcome me into your house, for I am covered by your covenant of mercy and love. So I come to your sanctuary with deepest awe to bow in worship and adore you. Yahweh, lead me in the pathways for your pleasure just like you promised me you would, or else my enemies will conquer me. Smooth out your road in front of me, straight and level so that I will know where to walk.
I want to end with this because this is where we’re going. We talked about the darkness. We talked about how things look. We talked about what the Lord wants to do and what He’s doing in each of us and that there is a call going out. The Lord is wanting us to answer the call. Because whenever you answer the call, this is what’s promised to you. This is where we are. It’s the year that we’re in. It’s the Amos 9:11 time.
Amos 9:11. “In that day I will restore David’s fallen shelter. I will repair its broken walls and restore its ruins. I will rebuild it as it used to be so that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations that bear my name,” declares the Lord, who will do these things.
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from all the hills, and I will bring my people Israel back from exile.
“They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them,” says the Lord your God.
Father God, I thank you for this word tonight and I pray it goes deep into our hearts. I thank you that you raise up powerful intercession on the inside of us. I thank you that you are raising us up to righteousness. I thank you that we will be your voice and your light in the earth.
Lord, remove fear from your people. I pray that bold faith with arise in these days to come. I thank you that bold faith will bubble up in your people. I thank you that your zeal goes out before us.
Lord, I thank you for people that will stand in the gap to pray and see a nation turned. I thank you that people will take hold of your call and they will answer your call. That they will go out and do, that they will sacrifice their lives for you. That they’ll fully submit and commit and surrender unto you, me first.
We say, Have your way. Run on the word, Lord. We decree and declare it so. Raise up your righteousness in our land in Jesus name. Amen.
Betty Love. Every one of us in this room has a call and a part and a portion. Everyone is significant. The hand can’t say to the foot that I don’t need you. I can tell you as communities, as cities, as a state, as a nation, God is awakening His people. (Yay. Hear that train?) He is reaching into hearts and lives and He is bringing wholeness and He is bringing us into alignment with His heart. He is awakening our spiritual senses to hear Him because everyone of us, not only is there a call, there is a cause. This word is a clarion call.
The Word of God says, I looked for someone to stand in the gap on behalf of the land. The eyes of the Lord are going to and fro throughout the earth. 🎶He is seeking hearts that are fully committed unto Him. Who will go? Who will go for Me? Who will run for Me? Who will pray for Me? Who will sing for Me, says the Lord?
You may say, Sing for Him? He’ll take the high praises of God. He’ll bend Judah, He’ll bend your praise as He bends His battle bow and He’ll fill it with Ephraim. Let the high praises of God be in your mouth and a two-edged sword in your hand.
Many times our concept of war needs to shift. War starts in the heart. It’s your heart and His heart. You won’t stand up and war for the one you don’t know and the one you don’t love. I believe the Lord right here in this minute wants to strengthen you. 🎶He wants to strengthen you in your inner man and make you whole again. Come on. Rise up remnant. Rise up in your birthright and destiny. Awaken in your birthright and your destiny for such a time as this. You were born for such a time as this.
I hear someone saying in here, But you just don’t know where I’ve been. My heart is shattered and scattered and I feel like I’m out of steam and out of breath and you speak of war. I just need healing and wholeness. I hear the Lord saying, Well, just receive it right now.
Father, right now, every heart in this room that’s felt scattered, anyone that’s felt oppressed or depressed or like their life is stuck in a rut, I thank you Lord that you are reaching into those places right now, shattered, scattered places, and people are being gathered and made whole again in Jesus name.
🎶I hear the Lord saying, Forgiveness is a huge thing to Me. I hear the Lord saying, forgiveness is a huge thing to Him.
So if you’re in this place right now and you need to be forgiven, I hear the Lord saying, Forgiven. And if you’re in this place tonight and you need to forgive someone, I hear the Lord saying, Grace is right here coming to you so that you can forgive and release that person or persons and that situation. This is a word of knowledge right now for somebody in this room.
Forgiveness is important. The Lord wants you to forget those things that are behind and move on out toward the mark of the high calling of God. You’re about to get cut free from that thing, set free from that thing. The Lord says your past does not define you. That’s not who you are. That’s not whose you are. The Lord says He has brought you out.
It’s just like Wanda brought that word. He’s brought us out to bring us through to bring us in. The Lord says, Are you ready to step into the new place in Him? Yay. 🎶So just step in. We’re going to step into Jesus. We’re going to step into Him because He knows where I’ve come from. He knows where I’m going. So I’m just going to step in to Him.
So be enthroned upon the praises of a thousand generations.
I want to sing this song because I believe that bowls from past generations. In the throne room in heaven there are golden bowls of incense which are the prayers of the saints. I hear the Lord say some in your generational line have prayed some prayers. Some of your family members have prayed some prayers from past generations and I see a culmination and a convergence coming. I see an outpouring coming in your life. I see an outpouring coming in your house. I see a turn of events coming for you tonight.
So we’re just going to ask the Lord to be enthroned in this place. Then we’re going to open up this altar and if you desire prayer, if Holy Spirit if drawing you, then come.
🎶We say Yes, Lord to you. Bring the bowls and tip the bowls again. We sing your faithfulness, for mercy without end. The God who sacrificed.
Anna. So be enthroned upon the praises of a thousand generations. You are worthy, Lord of all. We lift our voice with heaven singing, Worthy, Lord of all. Our endless praise will rise. Jesus, be glorified.
Betty. You’re commissioning an army. You’re raising up an army in this place tonight.
Anna. Highest praises, Lord of all. Dance with me oh Lover of my soul. You know my name.
Betty. He’s stirring in this place. We acknowledge Him in this place.
