10/2/19 Miracle City Global
Kimble Love. Welcome to Miracle City Global. I encourage you to press in right now, to cast off the day and enter into this season of worship before the Lord because he is here and he wants to minister to the needs of his people. And we in turn want to minister unto his.
Lord, we thank you tonight for your goodness. We thank you for your grace. Father, I thank you for breakthrough. I thank you for anointing. I thank you, Lord God, for miraculous signs and wonders happening in our midst. And Father, I thank you that you have filled us with your joy. For your joy is our strength. And therefore, anything the enemy tries to threaten or oppose us with, he is unsuccessful. And it’s a waste of his time and effort, because we are sons of the Most High God.
So Lord, we press in and we stand on the truth that you are our Lord, our Master, our Savior, our Healer, our Deliverer; and we bless you for your goodness. We bless you Lord God, for the opportunity to be on this earth in this time and in this place. We plead the blood of Jesus over this house, over our families, over our homes, our pets, our possessions, over our workplaces, over our cities, our towns, over our state, Lord God, and over this nation.
Holy Spirit, come and bring forth those rivers of living water to revive us once again. To see your glory cover this land like the waters cover the sea. We yield to you Holy Spirit, and say, Have your way. We bless you in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Let’s all enter into worship tonight.
🎶Kevin Long Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Sing of his promises forevermore. There’s no sound louder than the captive set free.
Betty Love. I want us to stand up right here into this song we have been decreeing into this house, over our lives, over our land, over our families, over our cities, over our gates. We stand up in the gap, in the gate tonight and we say as the redeemed, So! So! So! We decree Victory Victory Victory Victory Victory.
🎶We say Victory. Hope is rising. We say Victory is rising. Turn your ear to heaven and hear the sound of angels’ songs. All is for a King. All is for Christ our King. Oh praise him. He is holy. Hallelujah. He is holy. We welcome your presence. Come have your way. Worthy is the one who was and is and is to come. Our deliverer is here. Let the redeemed say So.
Freedom reigns in this place. Jesus reigns in this place. Showers of mercy and grace falling on every face. There is freedom in Jesus name. Faith is not a feeling and freedom’s not a feeling. It’s a choice. We choose to come out. We choose to come over. We choose to come up with you, Lord.
So I lay down my feelings. I lay down my thoughts. I lay down every preconceived idea, and I choose you, God. I choose victory tonight cause You are my Champion; so we step into victory tonight.
Anna Love. I keep hearing the Lord saying the choice is ours. I don’t know how you felt when you came in here but he was reminding me that faith is not a feeling. That’s what the Word says. If you came in here tonight tired or weary or dealing with a heavy load, then why don’t you just lay it down and break out in praise? Jump up and down, spin around. What’s it going to hurt? I hear the Lord saying the choice is yours.
Whatever your demeanor is, it’s not because of situations, but it’s because of your very choice. I hear the Lord saying we need to choose joy.
🎶We choose joy tonight, oh Lord.
Betty. He’s pouring out.
We’re singing / the earth is singing, Rain down all around the world. Rain it down on us. Your presence is here changing the atmosphere.
Betty. Turn your face to him. He’s raining down. He’s pouring out from the top of the head to the soles of our feet. He’s pouring out again, so turn our face to him.
Anna. To every season, turn turn turn. We turn our face to your face. I believe in you. You’re the God of miracles. I believe it’s true. We declare, We believe in you.
Betty. We believe in you, God of miracles. You’re on time. You’re never late.
Jacob. You made a way where there was no way. I believe I’ll see you do it again.
Betty. If you have a decree in your mouth right now in this atmosphere, something the Lord has put in your mouth in this room tonight, will you come and give it? A decree. It says you will decree a thing and it will be established and light will shine on your path. So if you have a decree we want to give you an opportunity to do that, because I believe this.
We do harp and bowl. We’re about now worship, now word, releasing the proceeding word, singing heaven. But I also believe he is bringing us into a governmental authority and that when we come in this house on Wednesday, he wants us to function in the decree. He wants us to function as the called out ones, the ekklesia, his government in the earth.
I will tell you, there is an assault of the enemy on the souls of people in this hour like never before. I was told by a leader today that five suicide attempts or threats came out of an area of South Mississippi. This Saturday there was a suicide attempt in a family.
I know that we have entered into a brand new era and a decade of the decree. The Lord said this is the decade of kings, to believe in the Lord our God, to believe in the word of the prophets, and you will go over. You will overcome. You will be victorious. There is a prophetic destiny that is stored in every believer to know and to speak forth the heart, the mind, the counsel of God.
It is a ten year season of Rudder Reform and Ruwach Rule. Where the Spirit of God, the breath of God, is going to be in our mouths in such a way to destroy the works of darkness. The reason satan hates the prophetic voice and so works to cut off the head of the prophet, is when you have God in real time, proceeding word, and somebody’s going to open their mouth, he can’t gainsay it; he can’t stop it.
When the word of God comes out of your mouth; when you hear God and you open up your mouth and you decree what he is saying; or you just open your mouth and let God’s decree fill it, satan can’t stop it. I believe God is showing me the counterattack of the enemy in this season—if he can so bombard the souls of men, the souls of the sons of God, bringing mental illness, torment, terror—it is a battleground in the mind. He’s trying to do it.
I didn’t hear clearly what Wanda told Kimble when she came in but I heard overtones of what I’m saying. We aren’t giving up the Warrior Bride. We’re going to come in and we’re going to worship Him into the glory, till we can maybe not even stand up. But we’re not going to assemble and not be available to Him to take care of business. To let the high praises of God be in our mouth, and a two-edged sword in our hand. To be vessels in a decade to destroy the works of darkness; and we’re going to do that by the words of our mouth. So we need to come in ready, armed, dangerous, ready to be an instrument.
When Kevin began to sing the song, Let the Redeemed of the Lord say So, the latter part of that verse says, Who has delivered us from the hand of our enemies. We need to be ready to stand up and say it or sing it, We decree he has delivered us from the hand of our enemies. We decree it over this city, The people are delivered from the hand of the enemy because there is a people who stood up in the gap to rebuild the wall of righteousness around about us, but also to stand on behalf of a city. If we don’t, who will?
I’m not roaring at you or me. It’s time to roar. It’s time to open our mouth and let God fill it. He doesn’t want us just to decree. He wants us to become the decree. Be the decree.
Wanda Sumrall. I just saw where the spirit of death was coming against the body of Christ this week, and what came to me, I just started speaking Life, Life, Life in Jesus name. I decree Life over the body of Christ. I decree Life over my home and over our families, everything that pertains to us. I speak Life over the prodigals. I call them up and out. I speak Life to those who are destined unto salvation. I call them to come in, come in, come in to the body of Christ. And come quickly.
Because what came to me is that the enemy is going around making us think, trying to fool us into believing that he has the power over death. He does not because the Word of God says Jesus took the keys of death, hell, and the grave. So that means that Jesus is the one who has the power over death. So death does not even concern us. Death has nothing to do with his Bride, with the body of Christ. Because when it comes time for me to transition, I will just leave this earthly realm and I will step over into the spiritual realm where I am already functioning.
And what I saw tonight as I was standing here: I did not see Jesus as a person. I saw him as a vast expanse, and that everything we are stepping into, he encompasses everything. Think of space; think of how big you think that is. That is Him. That is what we have stepped into this era. And that is what I’m seeing. I don’t even have words to explain or express it.
He is so much bigger and so much more than we have ever imagined, because we have compartmentalized Him the same way we compartmentalize our own lives. Death as nothing to do with us. It has no power over us unless we allow it, unless we make agreement with it. And we do not make agreement with the spirit of death.
We make agreement with the Spirit of Life and that Life is Jesus Christ. And he encompasses ALL and EVERYTHING and that is what we are functioning in. That is what we have stepped into.
I just decree Life. I decree Life and I break every curse of death. I repent for every place that we as the body of Christ have come into agreement with death. We call these people to Life, Life, Life and more abundantly, abundant Life, superabundant Life in Jesus name.
Betty. As Wanda released that, the scripture Isaiah 28:18, Your covenant with death will be annulled. Your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
In another translation, I decree, I will cancel the bargain you made to cheat death. I will overturn your agreement with the grave. Then your covenant with death will be annulled and your agreement with Sheol will not stand.
We decree and declare that any agreement, right now, that anyone that is coming into agreement with death and the grave, any connection that we have with people, that that is broken in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We agree with the Word of God that says, Choose Life. Choose Life so that you and your seed may live, that you may love the Lord your God. Listen to his voice, so that you will have many years in the land that the Lord swore to give your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
We have a covenant promise of inheritance, of inheritance of the land. This is our land, your land. Our territory, our tents, our treasuries.
So Father, as we stand in the land, in the gap, on behalf of your people, anyone in our lives that we are connected with, any place, any structure, even in this region, in this state, any place that they are making agreement with death and the grave, we decree and declare that it is annulled. It will not stand in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And Lord, we say, We Choose Life as your people and Life for the state of Mississippi, and for this nation. We are Pro-Life.
Rosemary Byrd. I declare and decree, Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is in the Lord, for he shall be like a tree planted by waters. That’s Life. I declare and decree that we do trust in our Lord and we will be like a tree planted by waters.
Heal me, oh Lord, and I shall be healed. Save me and I shall be saved. For you are my praise. I just declare and decree that we will praise our Lord, our King, and he is our praise.
Psalm 84:11. The Lord God is a sun and shield. I declare and decree that He is our sun and our shield.
The Lord shall give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. I declare and decree Miracle City Global and the state of Mississippi. We will shine and glorify you, God, and praise you in Jesus name.
Nancy Pitts. Isaiah 41:10. So do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
As they were singing tonight, I saw Holy Spirit circling the earth, and I saw pieces of Him go out and they grasped each person wherever they were, and he was filling them with joy. So I want to speak to those who are contemplating suicide, because I’ve been there, done that, contemplated that. It was a ploy of the enemy to make you feel isolated and alone, and I just decree and declare that you are not alone! You are not alone!
God says Himself, Do not fear. I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. And I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. And I know he will because he did it to me. He will not do for one what he won’t do for another. So come on. He is no respecter of persons. He is a good God. He is our Father. And I decree and declare that you will know that you are not alone in Jesus name.
Betty. Praise God. So Father, we agree with the decrees that have been made. Thank you for your presence here tonight. I want to thank you for this Miracle City Global family and our Love Ministries families that are watching right now, those that are standing in agreement. Father, we thank you that you are awakening us, awakening our prophetic birthright and destiny in the decree. So Lord, we give you honor. We give you praise.
Father, as we open up the Word of God tonight, I thank you that it goes forth into every heart and every life and it prospers, it accomplishes what you are sending it to do. We thank you, Father, for your goodness, that we are seeing your goodness in the land of the living in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
I believe there are a few places the Lord would have us go tonight.
Job 22:21 KJV. Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Receive I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart. If thou return to the Almighty thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from they tabernacles.
Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. He shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.
I want to major on Job 22:28. We in this house believe that the Word of God is our foundation for living. It is our foundation for life. It is a living Book. It is relevant for today. It is not outdated. It is not antiquated. But it is alive. It is the Word of God. And it is useful for teaching, training, correcting, rebuking, so that the men and women of God, the people of God, may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
We’re in a decade of seeing a return on the Word of God, the written Word of God, the spoken word of God, the Logos, the rhema, the proceeding word, and the prophetic word, like never before. And it is going to be imperative that you and I enter into a place of intimacy with God, and a lifestyle of living in him and abiding in him like never before, in order for us to fulfill what God would have us fulfill in this decade and in each day.
I think about weeks ago when the Lord said, Betty, Stay inundated with my Word. When you think about being inundated, picture yourself being a vessel or pouring water into a pitcher from a source, and it just keeps coming and coming and coming….so that that vessel is filled up and overflowing. There is no stopping. I believe the key to you and me to overcoming, and overcoming the works of darkness, and the plan of the enemy to shut us down, is: we are going to have to wash with the water of the Word in order for us to enter into the promises and the possession.
Even as God said to Joshua, Let not the Book of the Law depart from your mouth, but meditate on it day and night. We’re going to have to chew the cud of the Word continually. I’m not talking about being law-driven. I’m talking about being life-driven, where our hearts, and our minds, and our thoughts are continually directed towards the Lord.
And I’m not talking about you slacking off on your job. That grieves my heart when people don’t function in their job and they’re functioning for God. But they’re not being faithful to do their job at their workplace. You need to be faithful. We need to come up in the Spirit of excellence. I’m talking to somebody watching right now. Ouch! Ouch! But we need to be faithful.
I worked in the marketplace. I worked in banking. I worked in many different places inside the bank. But let me tell you something, when I left that teller cage to go to the copy machine, or when I went from one place to another, immediately my thoughts were on the Lord. Then when I stepped back in front of that person, my heart was directed towards them. Then I finished with them and right back to the Lord.
My ear was open to what the Lord might have me say to them. I don’t mean, Thus saith the Lord, in the teller cage. Because people might not like that. But there are people that need to be exhorted or encouraged, and they need a now word. You can say those things to them without thus saith-ing the Lord. Then if they happen to say, How did you know that? Then you can tell them.
But don’t have five people held up in the line because you’re prophesying and ministering to somebody here. You understand what I’m saying? And don’t be slow moving. We are a service industry. But don’t be slow moving to go get something and you’ve got five people standing in the line waiting to check out in the grocery store, and you’re over there just somewhere (daydreaming). That’s not integrity. That’s not excellence.
God is calling us up into a higher place than we’ve ever moved. And I can guarantee you, if our fix and our focus and our eyes and our hearts are yielded to him, and we begin to chew and meditate, Michael, on the Word of God, oh my. You can be there hammering or tearing something down, and you can be praying in the Spirit under your breath, and nobody knows. But you’re just building yourself up in your most holy faith. Or you might be in a job where you can quote the scripture while you’re working. Or you’re driving from one site to another and you can just pray and praise and decree and declare and just hang out with God.
I’m talking about a lifestyle of abiding in Him. I’m talking about the conversation doesn’t end in the morning when you say, in Jesus name, Amen. He’s going everywhere you go. He’s present. He is going to presence you and me in his presence like never before. We’re going to be instant in season and out, because we’re never out of him.
Job 22:21 NIV84. Submit to God and be at peace with him. In this way, prosperity will come to you.
Submit to God. That word submit is yield to God and be at peace with him. We’re still in that window, aren’t we, Brad? 40 Days of Return. So he is still releasing and calling out to the sons of God and calling out to the prodigals, Yield and be at peace with me! Be reconciled to God, and then prosperity is going to come your way. That’s part of even finishing out this 2019.
Even though we’ve stepped into a new Hebraic year, it overlaps 2019 and 2020. So we still have all the 2019 promises. It would segue (make a smooth transition) anyway into the new year and the new decade, but it’s actually coming in with us. When you yield to the Lord and you return in your heart and your person to him, he sets you on the path. And every time you choose life, it opens up your destiny and it puts provision on your path. It just does. That’s who He is. He said, And be in the right place at the right time, and everything you need will be there.
Call unto me and I’ll tell you things you know not of, fence in things. It’s Providence. The year of Pey. The decade of Pey. Open up your mouth and I will fill it. You will prophesy your path.
:21 Submit to God and be at peace with him. In this way, prosperity will come to you. Accept instruction from his mouth.
That word mouth is Pey. He wants to give you and me instruction from his mouth. Praise God. We are in a now now now now time to live out the word given to Paul and spoken to us. The God of our fathers has chosen us to know his will. The way we’re going to know his will is through his Word. The way you’re going to know his will is, you’re going to hear his voice.
The God of our fathers has chosen you to know his will, to see the Righteous One, and to hear words from his mouth. It’s our destiny. God doesn’t want you to have second-hand information. He wants to give it to you mouth to mouth, face to face. A Pey word is Panin. It’s the face of God. He wants a face to face with you and me. So he’s saying,
:22 Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart.
Then what’s going to come out of your heart? His words. Because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth is going to speak. So when he speaks from his mouth to you, and it goes into your heart, then when you open up your mouth, his word is going to come out. It’s the truth.
:23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored.
There’s a promise for all of us, for those that are watching. If you’ll return to the Almighty, one key is, he promises to restore. There are still some things I want to see restored in my life, I don’t know about you. And I believe it’s upon us. So I’m not letting go. The only thing I’m letting go is the song we sing, I’m letting go, falling into you. I’m falling into him. You are, too. He says,
:23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored, if you remove wickedness far from your tent
Remember his word to us? I want to wick out wickedness. I’m wicking out wickedness. I’m just going to draw it out. He set us up for this new era. So he’s come again again tonight to say, Let me just wick out any wickedness on the inside of you, anything that is affecting your heart, your mindset. I just want to draw it out of you.
So if you remove wickedness far from your tent, that’s where you live. First of all, your dwelling, this tabernacle, then your house,
:23 and assign your nuggets to the dust, your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines, then the Almighty will be your gold, the choicest silver for you.
In other words, don’t put your money or mammon or any idolatry before the Lord. He says, Do not worry about what you’re going to eat or drink or wear. Consider the lilies of the field. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, then all these things are going to be added unto you. We’re in a situation. We don’t know what we’re going to do. Well Lord, we’re going to seek you first, because that’s what you said. And I believe you’re going to answer out of this.
So he says, If you will lay it all down, lay everything you have before him, then the Almighty is going to be your gold.
He has the cattle on a thousand hills. He doesn’t have a problem with gold because he made the streets gold. He is able to open up your supply lines and my supply lines and see to it that we have what we need when we need it. I am confident of that. I believe sometime there is no fruit on the vine, there is no cattle in the stall, there’s nothing, or you’re down to your last scoop of coffee, or your last whatever, and you’re like, Yay anyway!
Though the fig tree fail to blossom, and there be no fruit on the vine, or cattle in the stall, yet I will rejoice in the Lord my God. Kimble had no idea with the prophetic word that it was the Season of Joy. And Anna and Kimble didn’t talk. They rode separately Sunday. But both released Joy words, and for Apostle Kimble to come with a sign up front—that’s usually a Betty thing. If he’s going to light up and lift up the red JOY sign, you’ve got to know he heard there is a JOY upon us in the house. Because he’s bringing in props now!
So when you lay it all down and you consider it as nothing. How many of you have ever had plenty before? I mean like, Plenty, and yet you haven’t been satisfied? I can guarantee you, I have talked to people who had, I won’t say more money than God because that’s not true, but they will tell you that they are miserable. Then there are people that are very wealthy and they have intimacy and relationship with God, and they are satisfied and they are blessed. Money does not solve your issue. Now it will help things. But if you have a heart issue, it’s not going to solve it.
At the end of the day, we can seek out what we think will click that box. It might be the highest education you can receive. It might be the CEO or the CFO of a company, the highest position that you can attain. But if you don’t have God, if you don’t have Jesus, if you don’t know him, you really have nothing—emptiness.
Yesterday in Madison—what we experienced—the power and the presence of the Lord came in so strong, it’s in that moment, it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. There’s nothing I have that doesn’t belong to You. And you just lay it all down. So he has your heart.
The takeaway tonight is: He wants your heart. Because if he has our heart, then he has our mouth. And if he has our mouth, then he can use us in this decade to decree his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. And to be a sign and a wonder and a miracle-worker. This is not exclusive to five-fold ministers. This is a clarion call to the entire body of Christ. Will you be used in this new era? Will you possess your birthright and your destiny? Will you enter into your portion, your inheritance? Will you occupy?
So when you lay it all down,
:26 Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God. You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.
Whatever that is, whatever your mandate, whatever God has ordained for you to do, you’ll fulfill it because he has your heart. And you’ll want to do it. Then he says,
:27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.
:28 What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways.
In King James it actually says, You will decree a thing and it will be established. It will rise up. It will arise. The decree. I was looking for the powerpoint to teach from it, but the decree cuts, breaks. That word is a powerful word. The decree. If you decree it, light is going to shine on your ways. It’s going to light up your runway.
:29 When men are brought low and you say, “Lift them up!” Then he will save the downcast.
There are people right now. I prayed for someone today that was dealing with suicide. Came into agreement. There are things we are agreeing with and we are praying, that when we practice this, and God tells us to do it, example: She won’t care and she’ll probably be watching.
I was out watering the yard early Monday morning and I saw Tara. In a vision I see myself come up and just steady her, bring her up. I knew in that moment that I had to call her and begin to pray. The deal was that David’s blood pressure was 200 over something. They had been in and out of the doctor’s office for over a week. That was one of the prayer needs. We began to decree and declare the Word of God and come into agreement and release the word that the Lord was putting in our mouths. And guess what? I got a text Monday night before we stood up in the Portal from Tara.
She said, Just to testify to His greatness and the power of prayer, His Word, David’s blood pressure was down, 112 over 76. He did that. Thank you, Lord. It’s His Word. Then it was still down Tuesday morning when he woke up.
You’re going to be in places and God is going to put people on your heart. It might not be that you’re supposed to call them. He might just say, Brad, decree this. Decree this over your children. Decree this over Forrest General. And you’re going to make that decree, and you and God are going to know it, and heaven is going to respond to it, and then when you stand up in Forrest General, you’re going to see the result of what you decreed. That’s what I’m talking about.
This is not praying and you’re waiting months or years to see the manifestation of it. We’re in a now season with God that when he speaks it to you and you open up your mouth and release it, heaven’s gonna run on it and perform it. It’s the place where Isaiah went and gave the word to Hezekiah and said, Put your house in order, you’re going to die. This is it. This sickness is going to result in death.
And King Hezekiah turned his face to the wall. Isaiah is getting to the gate and he doesn’t get out of the gate before the Lord said, Go back. Do you know why? Because Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and he cried out to God and God healed him. He told the prophet what to do. Make a poultice and put it on the sore, and he healed him. Sometimes there’s an instruction for you to obey, and then healing comes. Sometimes you just speak it and it happens.
The key is: What is God saying to you? If you don’t have a relationship with him, or you have never developed an ear to hear him, how are you going to decree anything? You’re going to be wondering if it’s you, or Him, or what. Or was it the pizza? God is calling us to a place where you are going to hear His voice and you’re going to know the difference. Praise God. He’s a good Father.
:29 When men are brought low and you say, “Lift them up!” Then he will save the downcast.
This is the promise. This is the bomb.
:30 He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.’
Don’t be cursing people. He is ready to use us to reach into the fire and pull the brands out. I’m just saying. You might hate the very sin that they’re enveloped in, but there is a redemptive plan for men, for mankind. I would like to say everyone is going to be saved, but that is not the truth. But we have authority to bring people out of the pit. You might say, What do you mean? I don’t feel worthy to do that.
We need to get beyond that lie. The enemy will make you feel worthless. He’s made us all feel that way before. Then we begin to realize who we are in Christ. I get it but I want to say something here. You start this, I’m not worthy. You start doing this business and what you’re doing is agreeing with that. You’re confessing that you’re not worthy. It is robbing you for you’re identity. You are a king and a priest.
You have a prophet, priest, and king anointing. I’m not saying you’re a prophet. You have a prophetic kingly and priestly anointing. You have all authority given through Christ Jesus. Your name is written in heaven. You are a King’s kid. Father God, the God who created the entire universe has brought you into his family, and he’s not treating you like an outcast. He says, Come, and the same inheritance that my Son has received, you’re going to share with him. I’m going to give you the inheritance of the firstborn.
So when you start saying, I’m not worthy, you’re just agreeing with the devil. It sounds like humility, but it’s really religious and it’s prideful.
Anna. This just came to me and it makes perfect sense. Whenever you do that, you immediately open yourself up to a spirit of rejection. Then you start wondering why it’s hard for you to be accepted in the places that you go or why people look over you and they don’t see your value. Because you’ve been saying how unworthy you are.
It also opens you up to a spirit of self-doubt where you’re always questioning yourself, whether you’re right or wrong. It’s like you can never find that steady place to stand. Even in the Lord, it’s like you constantly feel like you’re in a struggle.
I also saw that it opens you up to a spirit of depression. And it brings you down. It makes your soul cast down. Then you start wondering why, what’s wrong with me, why do I feel sad all the time, why doesn’t anything bring joy to me, why? We’re ensnared by the words of our mouth.
Betty. That is scripture. And this is the other thing. We’re saying this. This is all coming out tonight because this is the scheme of the enemy in this decade. To make you feel unworthy, to make you feel worthless. Even if you do sin or mess up, or whatever, he will try to hammer you and keep you beneath. Because if he can keep your mouth shut, then he has accomplished something. I started but I’ve not fully finished the altar. There are parts and pieces. I started Sunday to take, It is Well With My Soul, off the altar and take it home. We need a decade of, It is Well With My Soul, because that’s where the war is.
I could see clips, Danette, out of the Lion King. I can hear Simba’s father, Know who you are! Faith isn’t a feeling and I don’t feel everything; but here, saying, Know who you are, I can still feel him pouring out on my head. It summons his presence. When I said, Know who you are, he clothed me with his presence. It would be just like Kevin putting his arm around Shelly and giving her a squeeze. He wants you to know who you are. ‘Cause you’re all that, now. ‘Cause He’s all that.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind, and all of your strength. And love your neighbor as you love yourself. It’s time for you to know who you are in Christ, and who he created you to be and love it. And love the One who created you. Because he made you, from your eyes, your hair color, your personality; he put that together. You’re the total package, because He’s the total package.
Our refrigerator went out, and Anna and I believe we probably had a touch of food poisoning. By the grace of God and the Joint Task Force, the intercession, we did not cancel our trip to Brandon or Madison or today. We overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.
When we got in the car on Monday, I knew Anna was supposed to drive to Magee. I sit down and say, Lord, where to? He said, The mouth. And I discovered Psalm 81. He directed me there. I had no idea what it said. It has to do with the decree. In Psalm 81:1 I believe this is where we are between now and tabernacles.
When we come in together—Michael, you’re going to like this—Kevin, you’re going to like this—Brad, you’re going to like this—Kimble, you’re going to like this. Body of Christ, you’re going to like this!
Psalm 81 TPT. Lord, just singing about you makes me strong! So I’ll keep shouting for joy to Jacob’s God, my champion. Let the celebration begin! I will sing with drum and accompaniment and with the sweet sound of the harp and guitar strumming. Go ahead! Blow the jubilee trumpet to begin the feast! Blow it before every joyous celebration and festival.
Do we not blow the trumpet in the house? Yes. Some of you are the trumpets!
:4 For God has given us these seasons of joy, days that the God of Jacob decreed for us to celebrate and rejoice.
God made a decree. The reason we celebrate Head of the Year, Rosh Hashanah, is because he decreed it. The reason we gather and we celebrate Passover is, he set a feast in order that was just a type and a shadow that Jesus Christ was going to be the Passover Lamb. He set a feast in order to begin way back there in the book of Exodus because he knew one day on the Day of Pentecost, there was going to be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and he wanted his people to be rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing, and gathering to meet with him until the fulfillment of that thing came. Then after, just keep remembering. Come on and let’s meet again together. God is all about rejoicing. He’s all about celebration.
He has given these feast to remind us of his triumph over Egypt, when he went out to wage war against them. I heard the message in an unknown tongue as he said to me,
:6 “I have removed your backbreaking burdens and have freed your hands from the hard labor and toil.
How many of you have come out of Egypt? We have come out of Egypt when we are born-again. His plan, His design through Jesus is to bring us out of Egypt. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
:7 You called out to me in your time of trouble and I rescued you. I came down from the realm of the secret place of thunder, where mysteries hide.
How many of you want to know the mysteries of God? The Word of God says that having believed in him and received him, we have been made alive in Christ, and God raised us up and made us to sit with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. We already have access to the heavenly realms.
Lord, I want to go to that secret place of thunder where your mysteries hide. Will you just take me there in a dream? Will you just open up my understanding and begin to show me those mysteries? Why can’t he? He can.
:7 You called out to me in your time of trouble and I rescued you. I came down from the realm of the secret place of thunder, where mysteries hide. I came down to save you. I tested your hearts at the place where there was no water to drink, the place of your bitter argument with me.” Pause in his presence
Sometimes he lets there be no fruit on the vine to see what we’re going to do. Why? Because he wants to know, Is your heart really there? Is your heart really his? Are you really trusting him? Are you trusting him with your child? Are you trusting him with your marriage? Are you trusting him with your job? Are you trusting him with your finances? Is he really who he says he is?
Yesterday when we finish Madison, I think it was one of the most glorious portals we’ve ever stood in. I thought I was going to leave the building. We’re in that after, overflow. People are coming up and I’m talking to them; and Anna’s packing up. You want to give this testimony?
Anna. I was packing up and I dropped my keyboard from waist high on my right foot. I’m pretty sure my foot was broken. I started saying my foot wasn’t broken. At that point I couldn’t move it, but I kept saying it wasn’t broken. Then I could move my toes, I could move my foot, and I had no pain. Then it start swelling and we started speaking to the swelling to go down and it did. It would come back and go down. I reached out to the Worship Team and they were praying. This happened 12:30, 1:00 o’clock. By the time we got home at 4:30 or 5:00 yesterday, I had almost no swelling in my foot. Almost no swelling today, no pain, just a little bruise. It was definitely a miracle.
Betty. So we saw a miracle with David’s blood pressure. We saw a miracle with Anna’s foot. This is the thing. It was wisdom on her part. She looked at me and she did not want anybody to know. There were still people there.
Anna. I looked at her and told her, I don’t want to alarm you, and it’s not broken, but I dropped the keyboard on my foot. And we need to go on home.
Betty. And do not say anything. I think that was wisdom. We agreed. The Worship Team is agreeing. I went in the bathroom and I said, Lord, this is not right. It is an injustice. And I know that you haven’t ordained this. So I believe you to take care of it. And He did. So, yay God.
:7 I tested your hearts at the place where there was no water to drink, the place of your bitter argument with me.” Pause in his presence
:8 “Listen to me, my dear people. For I’m warning you, and you’d better listen well! For I hold something against you. Don’t ever be guilty of worshiping any other god but me.
Remember what Job 22 said. Lay it all down in the dust.
:10 I am your only God, the living God. Wasn’t I the one who broke the strongholds over you and raised you up out of bondage?
This is it: Open your mouth with a mighty decree; I will fulfill it now, you’ll see! The words that you speak, so shall it be!
:11 But my people still wouldn’t listen; my princely people would not yield to me. So I lifted my grace from off of their lives and I surrendered them to the stubbornness of their hearts. For they were living according to their own selfish fantasies. O that my people would once and for all listen to me and walk faithfully in my footsteps, following my ways.
You know what footsteps are. Have you ever been out in the yard and it’s wet, and someone has walked and there their footprints are. You can just step right in them. He just wants you and me to step in his footsteps. Then this is what he said.
If we will listen to him, follow in his footsteps, and walk faithfully in his way,
:14 Then and only then will I conquer your every foe
How many of you wants every foe conquered?
I will conquer your every foe and tell every one of them, ‘You must go!’ Those who hate my ways will cringe before me and their punishment will be eternal. But I will feed you with my spiritual bread. You will feast and be satisfied with me, feeding on my revelation-truth like honey dripping from the cliffs of the high place.”
At the beginning of the chapter it says: For the Feast of Tabernacles. For the Pure and Shining One. Asaph’s poetic song, set to the melody of “For the Feast of Harvest.”
This song was written for the Feast of Harvest, the Feast of Tabernacles, where we are right now. I didn’t know that. I didn’t remember that. But God knew it. So he set me up with Psalm 81. Psalm 81 and Job 22 have parallel truths and promises. So there it is for tonight.
You are his decree in the earth. Open your mouth wide, some translations say, and he will fill it.
Father, I thank you for your goodness. Lord, I know you are saying to us, Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just be still and know that I am God and I will be exalted. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of our God. Yay God. Because God is in the midst of us, we will not be moved by what we see. And he will help us at the break of dawn. There is a new dawn, a new era.
So Father, thank you for the decree. I thank you that we are in the decade of kings. And Lord, I thank you for all the kings that have gathered in this house. I thank you for mantling us with your apostolic prophetic anointing. I thank you for inundating each one of us with your Word; that as Joshua, we will mediate on your Word day and night and not let it depart from our mouth.
Lord, let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts be pleasing in your sight. Father, I bless this house, those that are watching, coming into the fullness of our inheritance in Christ Jesus. Amen and Amen.
