Kimble Love. Father, we thank you for this day. We thank you that you are a good good Father, that you’re always for us and never against us; that you pour out your mercy upon us. Father, today we just praise you. We thank you for your goodness. We thank you that you’re always there. That you never leave us nor forsake us. That you’re always there to lead us and to guide us, to speak into our lives, to give us direction when we don’t know what to do.
So Lord, we just lean into you tonight, just as the beloved disciple laid his head into the breast of Jesus. May we lean into you tonight. May we sense and hear and feel your heartbeat for us. Order and direct our steps and have your way in our midst, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
Betty Love. I love each one of you. You are valuable to me. And more than that, you’re valuable to the Lord, and He loves you. Obviously from what Anna has shared the last few weeks, we’ve come through. And we broke out on the other side. And if I’ve broken out on the other side, that means if you haven’t yet, you will.
All week long I’ve been aware of the goodness of the Lord. He is all that and then some. Thank all of you for standing with us as we went to the Delta. It was over the top. Words are not enough to express the things that God did in the land and with the people. We give Him all the glory. For those of you who went down to the battle line in prayer, you get the same reward, so just give Him all the glory and receive the blessing. Fruit and fruit that stands. We stayed with Beau and Marion and it was just wonderful.
I woke up in the Delta around 3:00 or 4:00 one morning overcome by the Spirit of the Lord. I began to pray the pieces of the armor on. In Ephesians it says to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Put on the full and mighty armor.
It’s the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace. We take up the shield of faith to extinguish every flaming arrow of the evil one. We put on the helmet of salvation and we wield the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word. But this was different.
One thing, I am imparting the goodness of God into every one of you in this room and watching. Just receive the goodness of God. He is life-changing. His goodness is the best part of Himself. So just receive the best part of who God is in you and with you.
I want to share what awaken or awakening is. it means to rouse from sleep; to cause to stop sleeping; to rouse a feeling; to make someone aware of something for the first time. An act of waking from sleep. An act or moment of becoming suddenly aware of something.
This was Holy Spirit led. ‘Awaken me in your truth.’ Right now I want you to fix your eyes on the Lord. I was overcome with tears and the presence of the Lord every time He led me in this. ‘Awaken me in your truth. Awaken your truth in me.’
It’s one thing to awaken in His truth. It’s another thing for truth to awaken in you. I’m going to decree and declare over us all. Those watching have the same power and presence and anointing. What are we doing? What is the armor? It’s Him. It’s Jesus.
So Father, right now, awaken us, awaken us in your truth. Awaken truth in us. Awaken us in your righteousness. Awaken your righteousness in us, Lord. Awaken us in your peace, Lord, your shalom. Awaken your shalom in us. Awaken us in your faith, Jesus—the faith of the Son of God. Awaken your faith within us.
Awaken us in your salvation, Lord. Awaken your salvation in us. Awaken us in your Word, Lord. Hei. Awaken your Word in us. Lord, awaken us in the fullness of who you are as we come into agreement tonight with you, Jesus, with your intercession that is coming out of the heavenly realm, as we come into agreement with all creation that is groaning, longing for us to be revealed.
I thank you, Lord, that the now of heaven, your anointing, your authority, and your ability is going to flow out of us tonight and shift things and change us from the inside out—oppression, depression, bitterness, resentment, anger, anything, Lord. We’re in a season, Lord, where you’re going to the root of that thing.
Come as we worship tonight. Come as praise goes forth. Come as you release the glory of your presence and your sound. Let heaven come in us tonight. And come in us, Lord, to the very root issues that have bound us, blocked us, perverted or diverted us, kept us from freedom. Come Lord and set us free. And bring freedom to us, to those that are watching, this house, this region, this state, this nation.
🎶Come and have your way, oh God. We present ourselves to you. I surrender. I surrender. Heaven is open in this place. Angels ascending and descending. Welcome heaven in this place. Come and have your way, oh God.
🎶Come and have your way in this place, Lord. Come and have your way in our hearts. Do what you want to do. Nothing hidden. Let our voices rise. All creation cries, singing out an endless Alleluia. Only a moment to live this life till we arrive in your presence Lord. There’s nothing better than this right now. Alleluia, all praise to our King. You are faithful, God. Let my faith arise. Hope is lifting me from sadness. He is restoring life. I’ve got joy again. Joy is crashing in. My joy is breaking out.
Anna Love. We were singing, My joy is breaking in, and I could see the Father singing over us that His joy was breaking in. But then Jesus lives on the inside of us and He is our joy. So joy is breaking out of us, and joy is breaking into us. You can’t escape it because it’s on the inside and the outside. So we receive His joy.
🎶We receive your joy even if we can’t feel or see it. There’s no escaping. We receive your joy. We receive your joy… I hear you calling me again. I hear your voice upon the wind. Here in this quietness is heaven.
There is a stirring in my soul and a fire deep within. My deep is calling out again. As deep cries out to deep. We receive your joy, your goodness. Rise up. Come and light up the darkness with your glorious light. Shine Jesus shine with the light of your face. Let our voices rise. Singing out an endless Alleluia. We set our hearts on you. Be the center of it all. You are faithful and true. Only you can satisfy my heart.
This is the air I breathe. Your holy presence living in me. This is my daily bread, your very word spoken to me. And I, I’m desperate for you. And I, I’m lost without you.
Jesus, friend forever. What a friend I found. Closer than a brother. I’ve felt your touch. What a hope I’ve found, Jesus. Jesus, friend forever. This is the air I breathe. I’m lost without you.
Betty. Psalm 91:14-16 TPT. For here is what the Lord has spoken to me: “Because you have delighted in me as my great lover, I will greatly protect you. I will set you in a high place, safe and secure before my face.
I will answer your cry for help every time you pray, and you will find and feel my presence even in your time of pressure and trouble. I will be your glorious hero and give you a feast.
You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that I do for you. For you will enjoy the fullness of my salvation!”
🎶The more I seek you, Jesus, the more I find you. The more I find you, the more I love you. I want to sit at your feet, drink from the cup in your hand, lay back against you and breathe, feel your heart beat. This love is so deep, it’s more than I can stand. I melt in your peace. It’s overwhelming.
I trade in these ashes for beauty and wear forgiveness like a crown. I lay every burden down at the foot of the cross. I set my heart and my mind on you Lord. Strip everything else away. I lay it all down at the foot of the cross.
You are relentless. You don’t give up. You never leave us. You never forsake us. Christ, be the center of our lives. My love is Jesus.
Danette Riley. While worshiping I heard the Lord say, Welcome to the Bridal Chamber. Father, I thank you for your word and for what you want to do and what you’ve already done. I submit the members of my body to you. I thank you that I am going to open my mouth and you are going to fill it. Praise you, Lord Jesus.
Psalm 45 NKJV. My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. You are fairer than the sons of men. Grace is poured upon your lips, therefore God has blessed you forever.
Gird your sword upon your thigh, O Mighty One, with your glory and your majesty. And in your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness, and your right hand shall teach you awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King’s enemies. The peoples fall under you. Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness, therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness more than your companions.
All your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia out of the ivory palaces by which they have made you glad. Kings’ daughters are among your honorable women. At your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
Listen, O daughter, (put your name here) Consider and incline your ear. Forget your own people also, and your father’s house, so the King will greatly desire your beauty. Because he is your Lord, worship HIm. And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift. The rich among the people will seek your favor.
The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace. Her clothing is woven with gold. She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors. The virgins, her companions, who follow her, shall be brought to you. With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought. They shall enter the King’s palace.
Instead of your fathers shall be your sons, whom you shall make princes in all the earth. I will make your name to be remembered in all generations, therefore the people shall praise you forever and ever.
This is a Messianic psalm and points toward Jesus, our Bridegroom King. He is the lover of our soul. Lord, I thank you that we are in your bridal chamber. Praise you Lord.
We are still in the month of Cheshvan. We are all flowing in one direction but we each have a different piece to the puzzle, and it’s beautiful how it works. Cheshvan is the month of Manasseh which means to forget, to leap up and away.
In Psalm 45:10, Listen O daughter, consider and incline your ear. Forget you own people also, and your father’s house. When Joseph’s son Manasseh was born, he said the Lord has made me forget the trouble of my father’s house. This psalm says to forget your own people also and your father’s house. He’s calling us into a new place, and he’s asking us to lay down the old ways and old thought patterns, even old victories because we are in a new place. He’s taking us somewhere.
The month of Messiah. The flood began in Cheshvan and ended the following year on Cheshvan. In Cheshvan, Noah brought the sacrifice to God and God swore never again to bring a flood. God revealed the sign of His covenant with the world—the rainbow.
Cheshvan is the only month which has no holidays. Jews believe the month is “reserved” for the time of Messiah, who will inaugurate the third Temple in Cheshvan. This month is connected with the fragrance of myrrh so let your sense of smell come alive. And this is what I want to focus on.
When we entered Cheshvan I was already focused on the fragrance of myrrh. Even in the songs we were singing tonight was the bitterness. Myrrh means bitter. I’m going to walk in the truth that’s been revealed to me today. There is so much in this and I know there’s more to be unpacked. Even in the songs, breathing him in and him breathing us in, there is something about our sense of smell that he wants to do in this season.
In Genesis 8 the Lord made covenant with Noah. After the flood, Noah came off the ark. Genesis 8:21 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.
The Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord because he obeyed him. He built the altar and sacrificed and the Lord smelled the soothing aroma. We are God’s aroma. We are the fragrance of Christ in the earth.
II Corinthians 2:14-17 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.
We are giving off a fragrance. When we learn this, we should not take things personally. When we give off the fragrance of Christ, it’s going to produce life in some and cause all hell to break loose in others. It’s not a personal thing. Our enemy is not flesh and blood. We are not their enemy. It’s Christ in us, that fragrance we’re giving off that the enemy hates. He hates that smell. We need to remember that. And we want to make sure we’re giving off the right kind of smell.
I’ve heard it said, and it’s so true, “Salvation is free. It costs us nothing. But the anointing will cost you everything.” The Lord is glorified in our lives when he comes in and heals us in places; and then he allows us to minister out of those broken places. When we are healed, there is an anointing that is produced there.
The word on Sunday was, Be holy and I am holy. We are to be a living sacrifice to him. We are to die daily. This is not a popular message you will hear in the mainstream. You’re not going to hear it. Life is not fair. Many of us have figured that out. The song that we sing, I want to drink from the cup in your hand, sometimes the cup the Lord asks us to drink from is a bitter cup. Jesus had to drink a bitter cup. But for the joy that was set before him, he endured the cross. There is a joy on the other side.
The Lord wants to encourage you tonight, to tell you that there is joy on the other side of this. There is an anointing on the other side of this myrrh, Marah, the bitter water. When the Lord touches that bitter water and turns it sweet, that is how we give him glory—to be able to stand and minister to someone else out of what has caused us so much pain. And then we’re able to do that.
In Cheshvan, say yes to the press, because the Lord wants to press a deeper anointing out of us. Brad showed a picture of an olive press and the wine press. We’re not out of 2019 yet even though we’ve stepped into 5780. The new wine is flowing. The new wine comes because you’ve been pressed on and stomped on. That’s where the wine comes from. I’m seeing the feet stomping on the grapes.
When we go through these pressings and these trials of life, the anointing is produced. And this anointing cannot be taken away from you. Man does not give it and man cannot take it away. When He has you reach out your hand and he gives you a word; or, Be made whole, that’s where the anointing comes from. It’s because we’ve laid down our lives.
The Word says, that I may know Him—we all know that part—and the power of his resurrection. But let’s not forget the second part. If we are going to know him and the power of his resurrection, we are going to share in the fellowship of his sufferings. It is what it is. There is always the second part.
In the summer of 1993 I was pregnant with my youngest daughter, Brenna. I was in the den of mother-in-law #2 after church. I went to Grace Covenant Church at the time. Everyone was eating and as I sat there the Lord said to me, Danette, Satan desires to sift you as wheat. These were the mountaintop times. I was going through hell in the natural, but the Lord and I were having a honeymoon. That’s when the Lord manifested himself to me and it was a beautiful time.
At the time, I was like, Oh, Okay! Danette, Satan desires to sift you as wheat but I have prayed for you. I remembered the verse where he said, Simon, Simon, I have prayed for you that your faith would not fail. That was the first part of that verse, and I have been sifted and resifted. The enemy has tried to kill me on more than one occasion. As I began to understand who I am in Christ and who He is in me, then it came back to me—if he desired to sift me as wheat, if he had my name back then, there must have been something that was going to come forth out of this vessel that he didn’t want.
And I’m going to make him sorry that he ever said my name. I am. We are. That’s not being boastful in me. That’s being boastful in the Lord. Because he is calling us to stand up as prophet, priest, and king. We have all three of those anointings in us. We are being mantled from heaven to dismantle hell.
I have sat back at the back of the bus like Rosa Parks. It’s time for us to come to the front of the bus. We’re not to play second fiddle. The Lord has in each one of us a score to settle with the enemy. Defiance. That’s what it is. All the robbery and all the things he’s taken from us—what he’s trying to do to us he’s done for us.
So, the second part of that first, Satan desires to sift you as wheat. In 2015, after the Lord sent Rick Riley to me, I remember standing in the living room on County Line Road and the Lord said to look at the last part of that. It says, and when you have returned, strengthen the brethren. He manifested himself to me in such a way—and when you have returned, strengthen the brethren. That is for each one of us. When you have gone through whatever your go-through is, strengthen the brethren.
Ephesians 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love as Christ has also loved us and given himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Now we’re going to tie in the myrrh with the purity. As I was pondering myrrh, the Lord had me look up liberty in Strong’s Concordance. It’s #1865, deror. In BEB, this word for liberty means a flowing, a free run, liberty, and it’s referring to the first verse. It’s referring to myrrh, which is free flowing; it’s fine flowing.
The first mention is in Exodus 30:23 where the Lord gives Moses the ingredients for the anointing oil, the incense. I saw that—flowing, free, liberty. It also means to proclaim liberty. Leviticus 25:10 and Isaiah 65:1.
Someone had a dream and shared it with Dutch Sheets, about mercy being the new currency. As I delved into this, the Lord spoke to me and said, Myrrh-cy is a new currency. Then he did a play on words and said that we are sent ones and we are also scent ones.
NUN is the Hebraic letter connected to Cheshvan with a numeric value of 50, Jubilee. On the Sunday we were in the river he said he was declaring his Emancipation Proclamation and to declare we were stepping into a ten year period of Jubilee. He is going to set the captive free. And the play on that is that he wants us to be captivated with him. Psalm 45. Because it’s in the King’s chamber, that place of intimacy with him. He wants us to be so captivated by him and with him.
He is going to set the captive free and he is going to deal with His house first. There are people in the church as a whole that need to be set free. Prison walls need to come down in all of us. That’s what He’s doing with us here. He wants the walls to come down, anything that would separate us from Him, big or small. He wants to pour himself out and be with us as he is in us. He’s getting us ready and he will do it His way. We might as well just commit to the process.
Myrrh-cy is a new currency and we are sent ones with the scent, speaking prophetically about this free-flowing myrrh. It was used to embalm; it’s still used for medicinal purposes, and other things. Gold, frankincense and myrrh were brought to Jesus when He was born. Jesus refused something to drink in the other gospels, but in Mark he was offered vinegar and gall; and in some interpretations it says it was myrrh. When Jesus said, I thirst, in Mark he took the drink and then said, It is finished.
I am declaring and decreeing that we are to continually die, and it’s not popular. But the myrrh that is free-flowing, the liberty, the anointing to set the captive free, all that has transpired in your life, all that you have gone through, all hope deferred places—that’s the myrrh. That’s the free-flowing myrrh and the liberty. Because he whom the Son sets free is free indeed. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty, that myrrh and that fragrance.
Lord, I thank you for the smells and the fragrances you are releasing into the earth. I thank you for your sons and daughters, that nothing is wasted. He wants me to tell you that nothing in your life, anything that’s happened to you—good, bad, ugly or indifferent—nothing has been wasted. It’s producing an anointing from the Holy One.
I wanted to know why myrrh was the fragrance associated with Cheshvan. I highly recommend the book, A Time to Advance, by Chuck Pierce. In some places it states that Cheshvan is short for Mar-Cheshvan, and that Mar is the word for myrrh. Smyrna means myrrh. Some schools of thought believe that Mt. Moriah is the Mountain of Myrrh. This is where the Lord asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac.
The Lord has had some of us prophesy, Isaac is here. Abraham is 100. The baby is here. We’re all at different places, but the Lord is calling for some of us to put Isaac on the altar. That’s one of the ways of the Lord. He will do that. He will give to you, and then He wants to know—Do you love me? Or do you love the promise? He is so wonderful. We will come around to His way of thinking. We will.
If he has asked you to sacrifice all and put Isaac on the altar, there is a ram in the thicket. The ram is coming up in the other side. It’s a setup. It’s painful. It hurts. But it’s a setup. When Abraham was ready, he obeyed God. We are commanded to walk by faith and not by sight. He doesn’t lay it all out. Honestly, I’m glad he doesn’t.
I would have just dropped over dead to start with if I had known everything that this body was going to have to go through. I’m glad He didn’t. I would have quit before I ever started as far as the stuff in-between. I know I’m the only one! That’s just me.
The land of myrrh. Also, on Mt. Moriah is where King David bought the threshing floor from Araunah because he disobeyed God. He wouldn’t allow him to give it to him.
Betty. He said, I will not sacrifice offerings to my God that cost me nothing.
Danette. Lord, I thank you for every person in this room and those watching and those that will watch. I thank you that we learn more and more to praise you on this side, that we praise you and worship you when our hearts are breaking and we don’t understand. There is no one like you, Lord.
If you’re in this room, I don’t know what you’re going through, but the Lord does know what you’re going through. I believe if we will stand and worship Him, and lift up our hands to Him, we can cast our burdens upon Him because His yoke is easy and His burden it light. Someone needs to know this is not the end. This is just the beginning.
🎶Until the day breaks, until the shadows flee away, I will go my way, unto the Mountain of Myrrh, unto the hill of fragrances, and I will sing a song that awakens the dawn. It’s your presence I’m longing for. Your kingdom come. Glory to the righteous One. Alleluia. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come. Jesus, Jesus, friend forever.
Betty. We worship you, Lord. We worship you Jesus because you’re worthy. Lord, you are so awesome and that doesn’t even touch who you are. We worship you Jesus. We just thank you that you are faithful. You never leave us or forsake us. 🎶A friend forever. You’re my friend forever.
We love you, Lord. Thank you, Lord, for the word tonight. We want to give off your fragrance and aroma wherever we go, Jesus.
🎶Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, friend forever. Friend forever. I breathe you in, Jesus.
Betty. We love you, Lord. You are so good. You’re worthy. You’re a good good Father. Awesome Lord. We worship you.
Father, thank you for the now of heaven that you are so faithful to bring in our midst. We truly live in Miracle City where you meet with us every time we gather in your name. So Lord, I thank you that you take this night and seal it with the blood of Jesus and Holy Spirit. We thank you, Lord, that we are your aroma, your fragrance. We breathe you in. Oh what a friend. Amen and Amen.
