Anna Love. The Lord has been speaking a word: Return Return Return. There is a returning. He said it’s a returning of our hearts. A returning of our heart to our Father in Heaven. It’s a return of the heart of the Bride to the Bridegroom. And it’s a returning of the harvest in the land, a return on the seed.
Colossians 1:26-29 TPT. There is a divine mystery—a secret surprise that has been concealed from the world for generations, but now it’s being revealed, unfolded and manifested for every holy believer to experience. Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!
Christ is our message! We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth. It has become my inspiration and passion in ministry to labor with a tireless intensity, with his power flowing through me, to present to every believer the revelation of being his perfect one in Jesus Christ.
Whenever I heard there was a returning, a Return Return Return, the Lord had me in this scripture, and what does it mean to return? It means you’ve been in one place and you’ve gone somewhere else, and it’s time to come back. It doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve gotten off-track, but there is a time and a season for everything.
Bill Johnson says that God doesn’t hide anything from us. He hides things for us. It says in the Psalms that it’s the glory of kings to search out a matter. The Lord has all kinds of treasures hidden for us, but are you willing to step out, to go out and find the treasures. Are you willing to pursue what the Father has for you.
If that means to stay still and wait for your moment, then he will open up the way and reveal the mystery or the treasure. If that means to move over here, then he has something waiting for you.
In hearing Return Return Return, I thought of the scripture in Malachi where it says the hearts of the fathers return to the children and the children’s to the fathers. With the Bride I thought about Hosea and his wife in Hosea 2, when he says, I will allure her. It doesn’t matter that she’s been a prostitute. It doesn’t matter that she’s been prostituting herself. I will draw her back to me and speak tenderly to her.
We’re in a time and season to turn to the Lord and let him speak over us. It’s time for us to examine ourselves and our hearts and be receptive to the Lord. Because he can draw us and call us and speak tenderly to us, and he can show us glimpses of the promise. But if we aren’t receptive to what he’s doing, he’s not going to force us.
Then a returning of the seed. I thought about Jeremiah. It talks about shouting and rejoicing and celebration. It talks about harvest and flourishing and the seed that’s been planted, like it’s finally time.
I believe we are in this season of Time. There are times and seasons, but this is The Time, The Now Time, and we’re stepping into it. It’s a Fullness of Time. I know many times in churches we hear—it’s now time; it’s a fullness of time; it’s time for restoration. Why do you hear these things? Because it’s the heart of God. It’s time for us to know the times and seasons.
I really like what Jacob sang on Friday night, that we are stepping into the time of the Lamb. If you will yield to the Lord and position yourself to be in His timing, you won’t miss a thing. You won’t miss a promise. You won’t miss a victory. You won’t miss an encounter. You won’t miss an opportunity to connect with someone. You won’t miss an opportunity for a miracle or for healing. It’s about positioning ourselves for him to reveal himself and make his glory evident in us.
Last week I shared about seeing the goodness of God in the small things and letting that change your countenance, your outlook on life, your daily life. Sometimes we get focused on the big things and miss the small things. We get so focused on the promise or the miracle or overcoming whatever situation, that we miss the fact that we wake up every morning and have an opportunity to encounter the Lord face-to-face.
We have an opportunity for one-on-one time with the Father. We have an opportunity to draw aside with the Lover of our soul. We have an opportunity to see our land redeemed. We have an opportunity to see the good seed that we’ve sown to flourish. I’ve been convicted of this before. You work and work or you pour out yourself into something and then you start resenting it. It’s something you know is for you—ministry or a job or an idea or music, etc. You start putting all this time and effort into it, and the thing you loved at first you begin to resent because it feels like a job. And sometimes we do that with the Lord.
By that I mean that you press in and press in; you spend time in his presence; you go to every meeting; and you go to church whenever the doors are open—and God why haven’t you come through and healed my family? Why haven’t you come through and provided for me? Why haven’t you come through for me, God? We may not voice those things but that’s what we are thinking in our hearts; so the One you loved at first you are starting to resent.
The Lord wants to remind us that in all the waiting he was there. He wasn’t hiding things from us. He was hiding things for us until we were ready. How many times has the Lord come through for you in a situation or you’ve received a blessing and you think, God, this was so on time. If I had had this sooner it would have been a big mess.
I love what Danette said Wednesday night. All these hope deferred places; we do a lot of inner healing for hope deferred, and it’s so important because it’s a real thing. Any time something seems delayed and it wants to pull on your hope and make you feel hopeless, what we really need to do is say, Lord, if this is you and you’re making me wait on this, I surrender to it and I want it in your time because then it will be perfect.
We want it in his time, because if it’s his timing then it will be perfect. It won’t be out of time. You can have the right thing but if it’s out of time it’s completely wrong.
It’s all about our hearts. It’s going back to the heart of the matter. If our hearts are not clean and free from unforgiveness, and striving and strife and anger, etc., then we are a ticking time bomb. When it is time you don’t want to blow up and have a mess and miss your opportunity.
This morning I believe the Lord is revealing our hearts to ourselves. He is cleaning out the chambers of our hearts. If you are willing this morning, and I pray you would be, he is going to show you those little things—if you have an anger problem, if you have unforgiveness, or whatever it is. It’s not for me to say what it is.
The best thing to do this morning is yield to the Lord and say, If there is a place in me, it there is something very deep, God, I want you to uproot it. We are in a pressing, and if you have felt agitated or aggravated or pressed lately, it’s because the Lord is not only pressing out a new anointing; he is pressing out the junk in our lives to expose it. It’s God pouring out his love and goodness, that he would show us ourselves.
He wants us to have our promise in fullness. He doesn’t want us to get there and stumble and fall. He wants us to stand strong. He wants us to be those oaks of righteousness.
My prayer for all of us this morning is, Lord, expose me to myself. It’s easy sometimes for those nearest and dearest to see the junk in our lives and our bad attitudes. But sometimes it’s really hard for us to see ourselves. Real healing and deliverance comes when we can see ourselves.
I was thinking about exposure yesterday in the portal meeting and the Lord reminded me of II Samuel 12. David was after God’s own heart. He was a mighty man, but he had some big slip-ups. We all have David moments—good and bad in our lives.
II Samuel 12. The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, ‘There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor. The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb what he had bought.
He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.
‘Now a traveller came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveller who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.’
David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this must die! He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.’ Then Nathan said to David, ‘You are the man!
We talk about righteousness and righteousness rising in our nation. We stand in this place and call forth righteousness in our cities, in our states, in the people, and we are so hard on the world because they’re not righteous. Which there is a lot of truth to that, but it’s easy for us to see the specks, but it’s hard to see the plank in our own eye.
This morning, it’s not about your husband or your wife or your children, boss, etc. It’s about you this morning. It’s easy for us to see right and wrong around us, but sometimes it’s hard to see right and wrong within us. I believe a true call to righteousness is saying, Lord, I’m willing to look at the junk. I’m willing to see my downfalls. And I’m ready and willing to change. Who is ready to change this morning? The Lord doesn’t expose anything he doesn’t want to heal. We are so on-time for healing and deliverance. This entire year has been leading up to this moment. Preparing our hearts. Preparing our souls for what the Lord is doing.
How can you expect harvest if you’re not willing to submit to the One who brings it? How can you expect deliverance for the addict if you’re not willing to accept deliverance for yourself? I believe the Lord is so ready that he is invading every aspect of our lives. Any place we would try to compartmentalize him, it’s like the walls we have built are down. He is not stopping. He’s relentless. He is coming in like a flood. I would say, He is here and it’s like a flood. Because you can’t outrun it. You can’t get past it.
Prophets, Pitfalls, & Principles
The 10 M’s for Maturing and Maintaining Ministry
This year is all about the mouth, the tongue. It’s about our words. We’ve been mediating on the book of James forever because it’s that important. The Lord is coming to deal with the chatter this morning, because we know there are things we shouldn’t say. Does something ever slip out and you think, Where did that come from? Or it’s like mindless chattering. The Lord wants to deal with that today. I believe with exposure—don’t fear the word exposure—the Lord wants to heal.
We’ve heard the word exposure for the last couple of years in the church, in the media, etc., but this morning I heard exposure like a photograph. Because the Lord is exposing things to develop his picture for our lives. I want what he has planned out. And I hope you do, too.
The Tongue. One requirement for ministers that is especially important here, is that they slander no one. That means we must guard our tongues when talking about our relatives, our neighbors, our boss, our employees, even our enemies. Our speech, as Paul told the Colossians, should always be full of grace, seasoned with salt. No coarse language and other type of speech to be avoided as coarse language.
Paul told the Colossians, Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful in building up others. Profanity, vulgarity, blasphemy, and other impure language simply have no place in the vocabulary of the minster of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
So we’re talking about not having mindless chatter, about watching our words. Where do our words come from? Everything that comes out of our mouths comes from our heart. If you have ugly things coming out of you, it’s really not a mindless thing. It’s what has a grip on your heart. Is your heart gripped by wicked, dark things? Or is it pure, innocent, and holy like we’re called to be?
I believe in the season of things being uprooted, whatever has had a grip or has grown around our hearts, the Lord is cutting off, uprooting, and tearing down. There are vines like the wisteria. It grows and spreads and it’s beautiful. But whatever it grows on, it kills, because it starts choking it out. I believe any of those dark places on our hearts, any unholy vines that have grown on our hearts—it’s like something has a grip of you—it’s junk in the heart. The Lord is getting rid of that today.
All we have to do is surrender and say, Here I am. Expose me to myself.
The 10 M’s.
8) Money. We have to have money to function in this world. Money sometimes makes people in the church uncomfortable. There have been two extremes in the church over money.
Money is neither good nor evil in itself. It is an inanimate object with neither virtue or vice. It is simply the medium of exchange for earthly things, just as faith is the medium exchange for heavenly things. Money is merely earth’s currency for purchasing human services and material items.
The Bible teaches that the love of money is the root of all evil, but the Bible doesn’t teach that it is wrong to be wealthy. Some of the richest people on earth in their day were some of God’s chosen people, such as Abraham, David, Solomon, and Job.
It’s God’s will that his people prosper and be in good health even as their soul prospers. God loves to give abundantly to his children, but they are not to have a love for an abundance of earthly things. He promises that if we seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, then all the material things we need will be added to us.
The Christian can have money, but money must not have the Christian. It’s a matter of the heart, attitude, motive, and Biblically ordered priorities. The love of earthly power that wealth can give has been for many the instrument to indulge the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
Money isn’t sinful, but it can certainly provide the opportunity for sinful desires to be fulfilled, just as money can provide the means for the righteous to do great things for the kingdom of God.
It costs money to operate this building. It costs money to do an outreach in the community. We have to remember that things do cost money and money is not bad. But the love of money is the root of all evil. Let’s dive into this. If money is what drives you and the fear of lack is what drives you, then even in a season where you are prospering, you’re still living like you’re in a season of lack.
That doesn’t mean that we’re unwise with our money. But if we are constantly concerned, Do I have enough money? Am I going to be able to pay for this? When it’s really not an issue, or even when it is an issue, then we’ve moved our focus from being on the Lord and trusting him, to trusting in money. And that’s not right.
Money is important. It’s important for us to be able to provide for our homes, for our families, for our lives. The Lord has a lot to say about working. He honors us whenever we work. The love of money or if money is what drives you, then you need to recalibrate. You need to come back to center. It’s to seek first his kingdom. If we seek first his kingdom and we hold to his word, then he will provide for us.
That’s not having a wrong mentality of, I’m not going to do anything because the Word says God will provide for me. No! He said a workman is worthy of his keep. If you don’t work, you don’t eat. It says it in the Word. If you hold to the Word and operate in the principles of the Word, and you seek first his kingdom, then even in times of lack he will be supply. And in times of prosperity he will continue to pour out his abundance.
9) Morality. It should go without saying that sexual immorality has no place in the life of a Christian minister and that our firm standard must be sexual purity. Unfortunately, it is estimated that up to a third of Charismatic and Pentecostal ministers in our generation, ministers alive in the earth right now, have fallen into some kind or form of sexual immorality.
Honor God with your body. The Bible warns us against sexual impurity—all sexual activity outside of the bond of marriage, in no uncertain terms. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God. Do not be deceived, neither the sexually immoral or the idolators or adulterers, or male prostitutes, or homosexual offenders will inherit the kingdom of God.
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body. Do you not know that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. You were bought with a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.
This includes illicit sexual fantasies, pornography, and sexually arousing movies and television programs. This sounds uncomfortable but it’s true, and it’s rampant in the world. That it’s rampant in the church is really unfortunate. The Lord is calling us up higher. It’s not indulging the flesh and it’s not indulging the lust of the flesh.
Avoid temptation. Matthew 6:13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
Heart Attitudes. According to Jesus’ words, sexual impurity begins before an overt action of immorality. It grows in the hidden attitudes of our heart. You’ve heard it said, The Lord noted, Do not commit adultery, but I tell you that adultery started in his heart. We may have a wrong desire to act immorally, but not had the opportunity to fulfill that desire. Yet the act of entertaining that wrong desire in itself is sinful.
Say you have an impure thought or dream, or you see something in a film and it stuck in your mind, etc., you don’t have to act on that. That’s the enemy trying to grab hold of your flesh. If you start being bombarded with thoughts, or in your dream life, and you feel like something is encroaching on you, give it to the Lord. Let go of it. Don’t even claim it as your own. Separate yourself from that thing and say, Lord, lead me not into temptation. Deliver me. It’s that simple.
The problem is, if you start dealing with all this stuff and feel so much shame, or feel embarrassed, and I can’t tell anybody about this. I’m struggling in my thoughts and can’t get rid of them, and I don’t even want to have them. It’s like, What’s wrong with me? I feel like something’s wrong with me. But don’t be afraid to say, Hey, I’m dealing with this and I need you to pray for me.
Don’t be afraid to say, Lord, I know this isn’t me but it’s trying to grab onto my flesh and I don’t want anything to do with this. I need you to deliver me now! It’s time that when the enemy starts throwing things at us, instead of immediately being afraid—What if I mess up? What if I fall into this? No! See that thing for what it is and say, You’ve got to get out of here.
If you find yourself in any type of sexual sin, repent. Repent to the Lord and stop. Turn away from the sin in which you’ve been involved in. If you feel tempted or like you need help, ask for it from someone you trust and will keep you accountable. If you fall past the thoughts and you stumble, and you do find yourself in some kind of sin, do not be afraid if you need to tell someone. I would say, Don’t tell just anyone.
But tell someone close to you, who will stand with you to be delivered. Tell someone that will pray for you, not just say, I’ll pray for you, and never do it. Someone who will keep you accountable. If you find you’ve fallen into something, all you have to do is repent. In some circles, repentance has lost its meaning.
It’s like: If I fall into that or mess up, I can just repent and the Lord will forgive me. And it’s as far as the east is from the west. And that’s just until next time. What we need is, Lord, break our hearts for what breaks yours. That’s not just over sexual sin or impurities like that. It’s for anything we find ourselves involved in. It’s for anger, rage, unforgiveness, bitterness, doubt, unbelief, etc., whatever you find yourself dealing with. It’s like, Lord, break my heart over myself. Break my heart over my own wicked ways. Break my heart for what breaks yours. Show me my bad attitudes. Show me when I’m short with my family. Show me when I’m saying the right things, but in my heart I hate my boss. Show me that. It sounds like the minor things. But we get messed up on the minors, because it’s the little foxes that spoil the vine.
How can you expect to stand up and decree and declare righteousness, righteousness, righteousness for everyone but me, because it’s only righteousness in the areas that I want to be righteous? It doesn’t work that way. Whenever you start decreeing and declaring the righteousness of God, righteousness is going to come. But how much it comes in you depends on how much you want to surrender.
Back to exposure. I believe the Lord is giving us a really long time to get things right. He’s been giving us a really long time to work things out in our hearts and attitudes and relationships, etc. You need to receive the exposure, to see it today, because if you don’t, I really believe it will start being exposed to others.
You’re in a position, and if you’ve dealt with something a long time—anger, rage, bad attitudes, backbiting, etc.—and you’ve gotten by in the past, it’s about to be seen. It’s because the Lord is not playing around. His glory and his power—signs, wonders, miracles—the harvest is here. But we have to be ready. If we’re not ready, then we can’t handle it.
If the glory and the power and the signs and the wonders and the miracles and the harvest are here, he doesn’t want us making a mess of it. So it’s time to get our houses right. I don’t mean just families. I mean our temples. It’s time to tear down the unholy altars. It’s time to remove the names of Baal. It’s time to get the junk out. Me first.
The Lord is looking for the holy ones, the burning ones. It’s not religion. It’s relationship. It’s where when those things come or those attitudes come—because they’re still going to come—you don’t have to submit to them. It’s like, Lord, I love you more than being right in this situation. I love you more than holding onto my unforgiveness, even though they really did do me wrong. Lord, I love you more than people treating me wrong. Maybe they’re having a bad day. Lord, you deal with them. I’m not getting involved in that. It’s time to start looking at things from a different perspective.
Kevin Long. This is a continual process. You don’t just do it one time. For me it’s continual. You don’t do this once and it stays. It’s a daily continual process of opening ourselves up and seeing where we’ve fallen short, asking the Holy Spirit to forgive us and cleanse us, and make things right. It never stops. Never stops. Never stops.
Anna. That is so true. I think we have a misconception that’s maybe not taught but caught in the church that’s not the truth.
We think when we’re saved, Well that changes everything. I’m God’s perfect creation and I’m never going to deal with anything like anger, issues with my spouse, issues with my kids. Everything’s just fine and dandy. Spiritually we are, but we still live in a fallen world. It says in scripture that we will face trials of many kinds.
Example: Maybe we’ve served in a position in a church for 25 years but we’re afraid to talk to each other. We’re afraid to go to our leaders and say, Hey, I’m really struggling. I can’t let go of unforgiveness toward someone and it’s eating me up. Then you’re told: If you’re holding onto unforgiveness and it’s affecting your whole life, then you don’t need to be in that position. You don’t need to be telling anybody anything, how to live their life, or whatever. That is not the heart of God.
We all have things we face on a regular basis, but the less we submit and fall into those things, it’s like the further away they get from us. You will not struggle with something your entire life if you keep overcoming it. It just gets further and further away from you until you can’t see it anymore.
When the Lord delivers you or you come out of something, and you haven’t dealt with it for years, and then something that looks very much like that comes in your path, and you’re like, Okay, things are getting real good because that’s an old dead dog that hasn’t been around. This is one of my biggest struggles. When something that looks like a past mistake comes around, the first thing in me without the Lord is that I am terrified. I want to go away and lock myself away and not deal with it.
But if we start fearing failure, fearing mess-ups, fearing sin, then that opens the door even wider for it to come in. Whenever something comes, face it head on and deal with it. Then it has no place. It’s giving no place to the enemy. It’s standing so confidently in the Lord that nothing can get you off his promise. Nothing can get you off of his word. Those things just have to get out.
10) Motive. Our motives are so important. Another word the Lord has been highlighting to me is Drive. What drives you? We all have something on the inside of us—and it’s Holy Spirit—but what drives you in life? Are you driven by success? Are you driven by the desire for family? What drives you?
What motivates you? Is it to bring glory to God or is it bringing glory to yourself? It’s time to check our motives. A lot of times in the church we have to question ourselves. Are we doing what we do to bring glory and honor to God? Or, are we doing it to bring glory and honor to ourselves and it feels good? That’s a hard question.
I was talking with some of the Worship Team and it’s a good thing to keep yourself in check. Am I up here because I like to sing and play music, or am I up here to worship the Lord? It’s not bad for us to check our motives. It’s not bad to ask ourselves the hard questions. If you find you’re leaning into something that’s no quite right, before you’re all the way into it, pull yourself out of it.
Jesus emphasized that the hidden motives of the heart must be recognized and purified. We won’t be judged just for our actions, but our deeds—which includes both our actions and motives.
For example, Jesus said, “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.” Matthew 6:1. People look on our outward behavior but God looks on the intentions of the heart. I Samual 16:7.
So if you’re doing things to be seen, then those are not good motives. It you’re doing something because people will think you’re so wonderful, that’s not the right motives. We should be the same with all the people as we are when we’re alone. We should help the widow, help the orphan, help somebody up, whether people or looking or not. If you’re not going to help someone when they’re down when it’s just you and them, but you’re going to help them when there are plenty of people around to see you, that’s a wicked thing.
Questions to take seriously:
Do we minister in order to serve or in order to be seen? Are we addicted to the ministry and the saints? I Corinthians 16:15. Or do we want to be recognized as great ministers?
Are we motivated by desire to fulfill God’s will, or by personal drive, such as a lust for power, fame, pleasure, or wealth?
In short, do we minister out of a heart full of God’s love? If not, then the Scripture says that our ministry is nothing. “If I have a gift of prophesy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I AM NOTHING. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. I Corinthians 13:2-3.
Our acts and our works will burn up. You can be saved and have Jesus on the inside of you and security for heaven. But if you don’t have love, you don’t have an intimate connection with God. You may know who he is and what he’s done for you, but you don’t understand his person. You don’t know him on a personal level or the inner workings of his heart. Love is the most important thing.
I think love has gotten a bad rap, because love speaks the truth. Love is righteousness. Love is everything that God is, and it’s so powerful. It’s the most powerful thing. Because, honestly, love is what drives you. Whatever you love is what you are going to serve. Whatever you love is what you’re going to lay your life down for.
Beware of the Weak Link
We should emphasize that few ministers, if any, could make a perfect “score” with regards to all “10 M’s.” We all have room for improvement and correction. That is why it is so important that we evaluate where we are in our walk and within the “10 M’s” in our lives.
We should never assume that just because most of these areas in our life might be in good shape, that we can neglect the others. It only takes one problem area to derail an entire ministry.
We must be diligent to give our attention regularly to every one of these areas. And we should keep in mind that even an area we normally consider our greatest strength, if we leave it unguarded, can easily become a double weakness.
That’s why we never think: I could never fall into that. They are struggling with THAT sin? I would never do that. Did you know so-and-so is having an affair? Can you believe that? I would never do that. Can you believe he’s struggling with addiction and has been for years and nobody knew? I would never do that.
We have to be really careful the position we take because as soon as we think, I would never do that, you’re setting yourself up for downfall. You’re setting yourself up for temptation. Not to justify anyone’s sin, but you have no idea what’s going on with somebody. You have no idea what brought them to the point they’re at. You have no idea.
But whenever you start walking a day in their shoes and start being bombarded with thoughts or situations, etc., and you get a taste of it, that’s very eye-opening. And you feel like you’re loosing your grip on life, then you know.
As the old saying goes, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Imagine this picture: You’re hanging over a cliff of tragic disaster in your ministry. The only thing holding you safe is a chain whose ten links are these “10 M’s” in your life. If any one of those links is in danger of breaking, just how safe are you?
Don’t become so proud and confident in areas that are functioning well that you ignore the area that needs work.
Decide today to begin making regular inspections of each link—each one of the “10 M’s” in your life. Strengthening each one is the best way to maintain and mature a godly character that will provide your ministry, your life, your family, your job, whatever it is, with a solid and stable foundation for growth. Those who diligently keep these “10 M’s” in biblical order will maintain and mature in their personal lives and prophetic ministry.
If we do this, it takes us out of the ungodly cycles and sets us in God’s cycles that don’t just go around, but they’re going up, as Brad taught. You grow, going from glory to glory and begin to mature in your faith, mature in your ministry, mature in your walk, and things shift in your family.
As a reminder, the 10 M’s are:
Manhood/womanhood. That’s who we are, how we portray ourselves.
These are the things we need to keep in check on a regular basis. As I said, if you find one of these areas is out of order or you failed in one of these areas, instead of feeling defeated, allow Holy Spirit to pick you up and bring healing and restoration. All you have to do is repent. Say, Lord, I don’t want a short fuse anymore. Lord, I don’t want this unforgiveness in my heart.
If you say that and that becomes your prayer, and you don’t feel anything shifting, don’t move off of that prayer. If you still feel like nothing is shifting, find a scripture and stand on that scripture. The Lord said if you ask he will give, so if you continue and don’t stop, he will deliver you. He will take it away.
I want us to enter into a place of worship and I believe the Lord has opened up a way for us this morning, that he is coming in and he is going to do some heart work. He is going to go to the center of our hearts to bring that triple return. He is going to return us to the heart of the Father as dearly loved children.
He is going to return our hearts as the heart of the Bride to her Bridegroom bringing intimacy and relationship with God. He is going to bring return on the godly seed. In doing these three things we will see a change in our lives and our ministries and our families. We will see a change in our countenance. We will see a change even in our land. Whenever we are walking in the truth, in the righteousness, in the glory of the Lord, the land then responds.
I think we take this lightly, but our lives are not our own. It was so wonderful hearing some testimonies in the prayer circle of the Worship Team this morning. It’s really a picture of how all of our lives work together. Because you never know if my decision is going to have an affect on Michael, or if the decision that had an affect on Michael has an affect on Josh. It all works together.
When we’re all walking in what the Lord has for us, it just starts building and building and building, and that’s what it looks like to have the kingdom of God functioning in the earth. It’s like, Birthright is alive. Destiny is alive. Purpose is alive. It’s not just something written in the heart of God. It’s living and all you have to do is step into it. Whenever we begin working on these areas, asking the Lord to expose us to ourselves, dealing with wrong actions, dealing with wrong motives, dealing with the junk in our lives, then He brings breakthrough.
If we will just get things right within us, then we can get over ourselves and move onto the real stuff, what he really has for us to do. I believe that’s what he’s doing this morning. He is healing, filling, exposing, restoring, and returning. Position yourself to see yourself. Ask the Lord to expose the things that need to come out.
So Lord, we just say Yes. We say Yes to your truth. We say Yes to the sword of your Spirit which is the truth of your Word, coming in us, coming through the center of us this morning, bringing us to true plumb, true righteousness. Lord, I thank you that your fire has been in this place and that fire is increasing and it is burning up all the dross. It is burning up the chaff. Lord, I thank you that you are pushing out the old and that your new glory is filling us from the top of our heads to the tips of our toes.
We rise up into who we truly are. We say, Jesus, we return to you. We return to you with our whole hearts. We return to you with our whole hearts. We return to our first love. We return to the One, the only One, to you, Jesus. Come and blow on this place. Fan into flame, in Jesus name.
🎶You are closer than my skin, in the air I’m breathing in. Feels so good to know you are my friend. This is where I’m meant to be. You’ve already approved of me. We return. We return. We return. We return. We return. Here’s where the dead things come back to living. I feel my heart beating again.
Betty. Wholehearted devotion. He’s wholeheartedly devoted to you and me. So he’s calling forth wholeheartedly.
Anna. Here is my heart, Lord. You can have my heart. Open my eyes to see what makes your heart cry. To be the church you deserve, the light to be seen. I feel my heart beating again.
Betty. Holy Spirit, come and search, heal, hover over the darkness within us.
Anna. Holy Spirit, come and hover over the darkness within us, the chaos. Come light up the darkness in me. It’s time for your glory to be seen.
Come and burn burn burn our walls down with your glorious sound. Nothing is hidden. You are uprooting in our hearts.
Anna. I heard, Holy Spirit is rooting in our hearts. I see He is uprooting, he rooting in our hearts and it’s building and stirring and dispelling the darkness and the junk and cleaning out the center our hearts.
Oh come clean us out Lord. You can make my heart your home. Feels so good to know you are my friend. Prepare me to be your sanctuary, pure and holy for you. Yours is the kingdom, God.
Betty. Father, have your way in every heart today. No one’s immune. Spirit of the Lord, no son of God is immune from the Spirit of the Lord in this house today. No one.
To Katie. Beautiful one is not immune.
No one at Miracle City here today is immune from Holy Spirit. This is the first wave. What came in, the power and presence of the Lord or Father in everything and what was coming out of the Worship Team and manifestation, He is preparing this place to be a place in the earth, in this nation, in this state of outpouring, transformation.
Our vision is upon us. Deliverance is here today. I’m not talking about an occasional sin or mess-up and I don’t want occasional. There is a separation coming to us today. He is separating a remnant unto himself. It’s not religious. But it’s about relationship. And your fruit is not going to stink anymore.
Exposure is here. I’m not going to allow what I know about to operate in this house anymore. If I want what God wants at the end of the day, he is looking for a people who will recognize Him as King of kings and Lord of lords. He is looking for a people who will respond to Him and repent quick. He won’t tolerate the status quo. This is not just an ‘anything goes’ house.
If there is something going on in your life and your family, I have been asking God to show me. Not to embarrass anyone, but you’re not going to be one way on Sunday or when you’re around people and then another way at home. You will not be a tyrant in your home. Me first.
You cannot go out in the marketplace and explode on people. And then in the next breath tell them you go to Miracle City. I don’t think so. Did that really happen? Yeah, I’ve gotten phone calls before. People behaving badly publicly. It’s been a while back so don’t try to figure out who it is. It’s time for us to deal with our stuff.
You might think, Oh, she’s talking to me. I absolutely am talking to you. I’m talking to me first. What God is wanting us to do is host the glory of His presence. We’re in a season where what comes out of your mouth and what we say about other people, if you habitually live there, is going to come back on you.
You’re going to begin to do the very thing that you’re talking about other people doing. He is going to deal with the issues of the heart. And he’s dealing with it now. We’re not going back. We cannot go back. I’m not mad at anybody. I love every person in this house, but the Lord is ready to deal with perversion.
He is going to deliver us from a perverse spirit today. Sometimes we only think about a perverse spirit as sexual sin. And it is that, but Jesus addresses a perverse and crooked generation. I don’t want you to be depressed. I want you to be encouraged. This is not a word just for Miracle City. If you had been in our portal yesterday, you would have gotten a precursor to what’s happening.
Betty Love. Years ago we did a teaching on a book called The Eagle Christian with our college and career group. When the eagle builds the nest, they line it with down. It’s a cushy place, high and protected. The parents work together and bring toys into the nest for them to play with. But there is a time when mama comes in and starts throwing out the toys and rips the lining out of that nest.
Where these babies have been in a real cushy place, with that lining gone, the tree limbs and sticks used to build the nest are sticking their undersides. Their strength has to be built. They can not longer rest on their laurels. They’ve got to learn how to raise themselves up, use those talons and their legs to support themselves. There is a place where it’s time for you to support yourself.
Then there’s a time she comes back and pushes them out of the nest. The baby eaglets are falling and screaming. The father then comes up under them and catches them and brings them back to the nest. It’s called flying lessons. Then she pushes them out again.
That’s why, some of you unmarried young women in here, when the courting goes on with the eagles, the female eagle will pick up a stick or branch, fly up high and drop it. Then the male that is courting her comes in to catch it. She will get larger and larger and larger limbs. This is the deal. If he misses it one time, that’s it. It’s called a future generation. Because if he can’t catch a stick, he can’t catch a baby.
Fathers and mothers, awaken. I heard the Lord say he is awakening fathers and mothers to be real fathers and real mothers in this hour. He is going to transform and reform a nation. Where there has been fatherlessness in our nation, you are going to see men rise up to be real men and real fathers. The ones that couldn’t catch a stick are going to be able to catch a stick.
Today is a very significant day. Breakthroughs are already happening. Things are already happening.
If you don’t think something is happening, Shawn is one of the most faithful members in our body. This morning she asked me to pray for her and her relationships in her home, and healing. As confirmation, we prayed the sinner’s prayer together. She said she knew Jesus but we just wanted to apply the blood, and we called forth rivers of living water to flow out of her inmost being. Healing is in the house for Shawn today.
Healing is in the house for every person this morning. I remember when this sister girl walked up that street. I looked at her and she had on those awesome shades, and God brought her in here. She’s family. Our families are getting set free and we’re believing for birthrights and destinies and complete healing. So I’m glad Mama had a moment, because that’s a sign.
The Lord is going to do in me and in everyone of you in this room this morning what you’ve not been able to get free of. I could look out and still see people distracted. It made the roar in me want to come out. I was like, Come out now. You have no idea what is right here for us.
Mental illness is going to be healed in the house today. Sexual perversion is going to be healed in the place today. Don’t immediately think that’s only homosexuality. It’s also adultery, pornography, masturbation, all those sexual sins that are contrary to what God says. If we’re going to see transformation and reformation in the world, we’re going to have to be transformed and reformed.
God is going to deliver everyone in this room today from a perverse spirit that has run through your bloodline. I know there are some of you that have never acted on something, but the enemy has so tormented you, hitting you in the face, waiting and then hitting you again six months later. It’s like being in public and having someone pull your skirt up over your head. It’s a shock value thing for the enemy, to bring condemnation.
I will say up front, I believe in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. I believe the Word of God is the word of God. I hate the sin, but I love the sinner. There’s a difference.
God has said at Miracle City, that it was His city, a place where He hangs His hat, and that He would bring His glory into this house. And regardless of what people were bound with, whether it was addiction, spirit of bondage, mental illness, whatever it is.
I say mental illness because I can guarantee you everyone in this room at some point and time has felt like you were going to have a mental breakdown. We live in a society now that is medicated because it’s the only answer, so people think. I hate schizophrenia.
Over the years I’ve ministered to people that have been bound in their mind, will, and emotions. What I see today is that it is witchcraft. It is occultic power. You see people who open themselves to addiction, and then mental illness follows it. There are all kinds of things that are stirring right now—anger, rage, jealousy, bitterness, all the things that are works of the flesh. Not just something that’s here and there, but you live there. You’ve got a demonic spirit oppressing you.
I can’t do this on my best day. If you think I’m all perfect then you’re not right. Holy Spirit is the Navigator and he is going to set the course, and I’m applying this to me for him to go to the very core of my being. I might see something different in a few minutes, but I don’t have any open sin in my life that I know of, and that’s the grace of God. And I don’t want any.
When I open my mouth and pray for you, or when you open your mouth and pray for somebody, I want them to get it. Not, because I have mixture in my life or I’m praying for somebody to be set free from pornography, and I’m it in myself. Or I’m praying for somebody to be set free from alcoholism and I’m drinking every day and every night. Or I’m going to pray for someone to get rid of jealousy and anger and bitterness, and I’m Mr. Nice Guy or Ms. Wonderful Woman here, and I’m horrible at home. Like having a fit-pitch every other minute.
What I’m saying to you is that he won’t let me do that. He delivered me from anger years ago. That is the truth. I was a real good fit-pitcher in my late teens and early 20s and he ripped that rug right out from under me. When you are familiar with the behavior and you can no longer do that because you’ve got someone living on the inside of you that says, No, you have to find some new words. And I don’t mean dang it, blast it, whatever. That’s still cursing. You’re just substituting something else because you’re madder than a hatter.
I am praying today what the early church prayed. Lord, enable us to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs, wonders, and miracles in the name of your holy servant, Jesus. Come in every heart and every life in this room. And what nobody knows, deliver us—perversion, incest, sexual abuse, rape. I don’t know of a bloodline—homosexuality, adultery—that doesn’t have those sins.
If there is incest in a family, that sin affects ten generations, until someone, be it you or me, stands up and says, No more in this house. Not for my grandchildren, or my grandchildren’s children. No more. It stops now!
The problem has been that you get daddies on the right page and mama’s aren’t on the right page. You have families, husbands and wives that are born-again, but they’re not living there. I’m not putting law on anybody. But I know if we don’t deal with our stuff we are going to be exposed, because God loves us enough not to let us stay there.
If you do not deal with your mouth, what you say about somebody is going to come back to them. A little bird is going to pick it up and bring it back. You’re going to get into trouble by the words of your mouth because we’re in a decade that you’re going to create with it.
I heard this. There are people who blast people, say they’re crazy, talk about their behavior. And then I’m looking and they’re doing the same thing. I’m thinking, you are really naked because you can’t see what you’re doing. Me first. There is a place where you speak to someone out of concern for an individual, but gossiping, slander—that is perverse lips.
When you retell a story so many times you don’t even know how many people you’ve told, I’m hearing that. I’m hearing people repeat things they’ve already told. I saw today that it’s a perverse spirit in the bloodline. So I’m going to footprint some of this and then let God be God. I want to tell you, Shawn is fruit. I love her. People are going to come in here and look all good on the outside and say all the right things and appear to have it all together. But on the inside they are messed up. People are going to come from all walks of life and are going to need the Healer and the Deliverer to set them free.
The word Anna spoke this morning, the Lord said it was a pre-op. His glory came in here and it’s still here. We have an opportunity as a body like no other. I’ve seen this before. I’ve seen the glory come and then the head falls. I’ve seen the glory come and then strife and division breaks out. We’re not even structured for strife and division. I’m not going to put up with it. I’m just not. But I’m going to speak the truth in love.
There are people I’m accountable to that I believe would come to me and speak the truth in love. When I say these things to you today, I’m not saying everybody else and not me. That’s been the problem in our lives. It’s always been everybody else but not me. He is going to deal with narcissism.
You may be asking why we’re doing this. I want this house and this ministry to be all the Father, all Jesus, and all the Holy Spirit. I really do believe and want Jesus to be the Apostle of this house. I know there cannot be mixture on this Worship Team and us go where God wants us to go. But it’s not just about this team, it’s about this whole (house) team. You’re the Core. There are some because of family obligations who could not be here today, but we have a core of people that God is ready to mobilize to minister to the masses.
Donna Bass has said, We’ve got to get ready for the hundreds. We’ve got to get ready. Getting ready starts with the heart. If you can’t live outside of here in Christ, the place you refuse to deal with is a liability. You can clean your entire house, make sure your security system is on, but if you have a door or window open, that’s where the enemy will try to come in.
Out of love, first for the Lord, and love for you, I don’t want any place in your life to be a spot where you’re going to get hit. God is going to begin to use you, and I don’t want you to stand up in this house and be used mightily of the Lord only to go home and have the enemy just sweep your legs out from under you, or have you face first so bad by mid-week that you’re just slaughtered.
The reason he can do that is because there is still a place in your life or my life that we’ve not dealt with. I want a house where there is no sick among us. I want a room just for wheelchairs and then when it gets so full we just put them on the scrap pile. I don’t want you to get just a touch from God, or a surface duty-to-God moment. I want God to so have a hold of your life and my life that we are radical. And I don’t mean crazy weird.
Jesus was with the Father but he functioned in the earth. Don’t go floating off on a cloud somewhere so that you’re no earthly good. That’s error. I’m not saying we can’t have a good time in the Holy Ghost and he can’t lay everyone down in this house, because I expect him to do it. I believe the glory is going to come at times where we can’t stand, where we’ll have to have Uber drivers.
I want to see people ride the train from New York City to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and get off the train running. I want to see them step off the train and be overcome by the Spirit of the Lord. I want something beyond Azusa Street because that’s been.
I’ll be honest. I don’t want puppies getting out of the basket. You deal with one thing and then somebody else is climbing out and somebody else is doing something that’s very unwise, and you’re like, Come on! But you know what? I don’t need puppies. We need people to grow up in their salvation and deal with their stuff and become mature believers. And quit copping to, Well that’s just the way I am. That’s my heritage. I’m like, Get over it now. The Word of God is of no effect because you are steeped in the traditions of men. It’s the truth.
I am ready to mobilize a house because I need you. The Lord needs you. It is time. He is going to make us one in him. We are going to get set at one in Him. I don’t know how he is going to do it but I know he is going to do it. I know that whatever has been a stronghold in your life—I want complete deliverance for every believer in this room. I want change. I want you to be able to measure this morning for the rest of your life.
The Lord already said to Kevin, The Egyptians you face today you’re going to see no more. He’s going to do a complete thing in Kevin, in everyone that will let him. I want the vision.
I know I’m not Katherine Kuhlman. I don’t want to be Katherine Kuhlman. I know we are at a greater glory that when Katherine stood. The call of God on my life is like that. As a young Presbyterian girl, for three months I didn’t know who Katherine Kuhlman is. I had no clue. And every night I went to bed I didn’t dream anything but it was like a recording going on in my head, Katherine Kuhlman, Katherine Kuhlman… Then I found out.
Then thirty years ago, You’re called to the ones the world says there is no hope. There are people bound in addiction and dying every day. We’re talking about a power of his glory that is corporate. I know the anointing. I know what it is to let him separate you out, be repented up, and be in one accord with Him. And to walk into a meeting and see 100 people healed at one time. It’s not an exaggeration.
It’s one individual allowing God to separate them. But he’s wanting to separate a whole congregation, a whole army. To be honest, it would be easier for just me going out there, me standing on the platform, however great or however small, and let you play me. Then I don’t have to be concerned about a Worship Team who’s going to have backroom stuff going on in their lives. Or a Ministry Team in the altar that has open sin.
Please don’t hear me wrong. I’m not trying to tell you to be religious. That won’t last because it’s an outside thing because I put law on you. The only thing that’s going to change you and me from the inside out is Holy Spirit.
We are here as a body. He is going to bring the provision. He is going to do it. I know that. We’re going to buy land and buildings, and we’re not going to just do ministry. We’re going to hit the mountains of society for business. He is going to transform this side of the city. He changed the world with eleven men. One was a traitor. He changed the world with 120, with table waiters. He’s looking for Stephens.
He’s looking for Katherine Kuhlmans. Some of you are five-fold ministers in this room. It doesn’t matter if you’re part of the equipping family or part of the family. Miracle workers are going to be released. He is going to send out apostolic ministry teams in communities, in cities. He is going to transform a nation. And he is giving us an opportunity to be a prototype and a first fruits. And I want to see us come into our possession.
I want to see Jesus get his reward. I want to see from the cradle to Mr. Floyd. I want to see all the generations step into the fullness. I want to see the sin issues that have followed us, or we can come out of something and repent of it, but it takes time to pay off a debt, etc. The Lord is going to so shift you and me that things that have been outstanding are going to come quickly. It’s going to be over with.
Thursday evening we step into the new Hebraic month of Kislev, a month of dreams. January 1, 2020, is all about vision. It’s all about you coming into the fullness. The Hebraic alphabet for Kislev is SAMEKH. It means to come full circle. You are at a crossroads place in your life this morning or you would not be in this house or watching.
God is saying, I’ve brought you full circle and I’m going to deliver you. And I’m going to bring you into your next if you will allow me. If you do not allow Him, you will not be a part of this first moving of the Spirit. You won’t. You will repeat the cycles. I don’t want to repeat any cycles in my life. If it’s fear, jealousy, pride, nothing’s off limits, but he is going to cleanse your bloodline today. That’s what I see.
Isaiah 53. Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities;
We are still in Cheshvan. It’s the time where the Lord is exposing root issues; and it’s the time where we are to crush the enemy under our feet. The constellation revealed in the heavens right now is Scorpio, the scorpion.
Luke 10:19 is here today. I have given you power and authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, to overcome all the power of the enemy. How many of you in this room this morning want to overcome all the power of the enemy in your life? So that nothing shall by any means harm you or fail to meet the obligations of covenant to you.
He wants to destroy the power of sin, death, disease, and all the works of the devil, and the devil himself in our lives. His authority is here to do it because he is living on the inside of you and me.
Jesus was pierced for our transgressions. A transgression is when you know something is wrong; there’s the line but you just choose to step over it anyway. I’m going to do it anyway. I’ve had some of those moments in my life, and every time I did it anyway and did not care, it cost me a great deal—until I decided to repent.
He was crushed for our iniquities. The root meaning of iniquity is to bend or twist. Perversity. A bent towards certain kinds of sin. Sin that continues to be committed that is habitual. A pre-meditated choice to commit iniquity is to continue without repentance. Iniquity is sin that is deeply rooted in the bloodline. Iniquity is passed to the third and fourth generations.
David’s sin with Bathsheba that led to the killing of her husband, Uriah, was an iniquity. Micah 2:1. Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds. At morning light they carry it out, because it is in their power to do it.
Psalm 51:2. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. God forgives iniquity as he does any type of sin when we repent. Iniquity left unchecked leads to a state of willful sin with no fear of God. You become desensitized to the thing.
It is time. He has been dealing with me. We have been processing through this for two or three weeks now. By the time it got to this past week, I had so much joy. I got the joy joy joy and it won’t let go! That’s what we need, all of us.
The buildup of unrepentant sin is sometimes pictured as a cup of iniquity that is filled to the brim. This often applies to nations who have forsaken God completely. Continued iniquity leads to unnatural affections which leads to a reprobate mind, as in Romans 1:28-32. We’re talking about every kind of sexual sin.
If you are in this room and have dealt with sexual sin and you are still dealing with it, the Lord wants to set you free. If it has been a bloodline issue, do not sit there and think, That’s not been in my life or in my family. If you look long enough, you’ll find it. It appalls me that people are more tolerable of adultery than they are of homosexuality. We don’t want to tolerate anything in our lives. But we want to love people. The church has not done what she needed to do. But we’re going to let God do what he needs to do.
The difference between sin, transgression, and iniquity.
Psalm 32:5. I acknowledge my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgression to the Lord.
I believe that’s really what he is going to do. He is going to deal with sin in our life. He is going to deal with iniquity. And he is going to deal with transgression. We are going to see the three-fold cord, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost come in fullness in our lives this morning. My prayer, what I have asked Him to do is, Hit them with your best shot!
When they get to a place at the altar, when they’re wide open, let’s just do the deal. Do the deal in me, Lord. I don’t want to deal with this anymore. Just finish this. Why does this keep coming up to me? Why do I keep losing it? Go to the root. That’s where we are prophetically, hebraically. To the root. To the root. To the root.
I’m a gardener and when I’ve been planting I’ll run across a runner root. You start pulling and pulling and pulling with all your might and I’ve had a good sit-down before from pulling a root. I said, Anna, if I get knocked on my rear end, I’m going to keep pulling. I’m going to reach in, by the grace of God, to every life and just keep pulling and pulling and pulling. I want the root issues to come up on Sunday morning.
You know what, it won’t be me falling because I can’t pull root issues out of us. But the Lord—Father, Son and Holy Ghost—that three-fold cord, isn’t going to fall. We’re going to get a good ‘But God.’ Well, I’ve got this and this and this. But God.
Sin is to miss the mark. It’s doing something against God or against a person. Doing the opposite of what is right. Exodus 10:16, Galatians 5:17. Doing something that will have negative results. Proverbs 24:33-34. Failing to do something you know is right. James 4:7. If you know the good you should do and you don’t do it, that’s called sin. Anything that falls short of the glory of God. There are things that have fallen short of the glory of God in my life, so that’s sin.
A sin is any thought or action that falls short of God’s will. God is perfect and anything we do that falls short of his perfection is sin. The Bible uses many examples or word pictures to illustrate what this means. For example: It tells us sin is like an archer who misses the target. He draws back his bow and sends the arrow on its way, but instead of hitting the bull’s eye, it veers off course, missing the mark. The arrow may only miss it a little bit or it may miss it a great deal, but the result is the same. The arrow doesn’t land where it is supposed to.
I got a suddenly when I picked up this book I use to teach on strongholds. I didn’t know I would be reading this. Holy Spirit is the Navigator and he is leading. For the last couple of days I’ve been seeing the Lord take an arrow and shoot the arrow right into the heart. Have you ever seen an archer shoot an arrow in an arrow and it just splits open? Every arrow of the enemy that has pierced your heart, God’s arrow that has been dipped in the love and the blood of Jesus Christ, is going to pierce your heart this morning. Not unto destruction, but unto life. It’s Revive. It’s more than revival. He’s going to revive your heart, but then he’s going to transform and reform, spirit, soul, and body.
The same is true of sin. God’s will is like the center of that target. When we sin we fall short of his will or miss the mark. This is something we do every day. As the Bible says, For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Even when we aren’t aware of it, we can commit sin by doing things we do or fail to do or by the way we think. They’re called sins of omission or commission.
A sin of omission is something you don’t even know you’ve done. A sin of commission is something you’re aware that you did.
Transgression is presumptuous sin. To transgress is to choose to intentionally disobey. Transgression is willful trespassing. Samson intentionally broke his Nazarite vow by touching a dead lion and allowing his hair to be cut. In doing so, he was committing a transgression. When we knowingly run a stop sign, tell a lie, or blatantly disregard an authority, we are transgressing. We make excuses or we do it so often we are desensitized to it, and it becomes a part of our life. That’s where the shift and the change is coming today.
I discovered this about a perverse spirit, a spirit of perversion. I believe this is a bloodline issue. I am not throwing stones. I want to deal with planks and specks.
He was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed or our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Jesus has taken care of it all.
Perversion is an act of perverting, a state of being perverted, a perverted form of something. What is a spirit of perversion? Willfully determined not to do what is expected or desired. Obstinately persisting in an error or fault. Wrongfully self-willed or stubborn. Marked by a disposition to oppose or contradict. Turned away from what is right, good, and proper.
Wicked or corrupt. Perversion is defined as the condition of being perverted or corrupt. It is straying from the natural to the unnatural sexual practices or acts, especially when it is done habitually. The spirit of perversion can be manifested in many different ways—sexual perversion, child abuse, pornography, incest, having a filthy mind, chronic worrying, walking in foolishness, twisting the Word of God, evil actions, abortion, having a broken spirit, doctrinal error, atheism. When you are cantankerous, when you are argumentative, when you are contentious, it is rooted in a perverse spirit.
It is an antagonistic thing. Have you ever been talking to someone and you say something, but by the time it gets to their ears, what you said and what they heard are two different things? It’s a twisting.
The perverse spirit is rooted in Leviathan. And it is rooted in Pride. It is what is trying to dominate in the kingdom of darkness in this nation. The perverse spirit, perversion, is rooted in when you talk about other people and you let corrupt communication come out of your mouth.
Well, I just told so and so, and so and so. Something continues because you tell it. You can either build the fire or put out the fire. Every time you repeat what someone has done to you, you are coming into agreement with that. Every time you retell the story about what someone is doing or done or how crazy or messed up they are, you are slandering them, even when you are telling the truth about it. It’s right out of the book of James that says, Oh what a small rudder turns a ship. The tongue is a fire setting a whole forest on fire. It sets the whole course of your life.
We are in a ten year season where what you say is going to set the course of your life. We’re going to wonder, if we don’t respond to Holy Spirit, why we’re not living our vision, our dream, and fulfilling our birthright and our destiny. It’s because you’ve got a little fox that’s become a great plank. More than that you have an opportunity to be a healer, a miracle-worker, a kingdom advancer.
You can be a part of a move of God like none other in the history of the world. The Lord says what is coming is going to be like a pandemic. And you’re going to choose where you’re going to be. It’s not going to be hidden anymore from you and me. I’m not talking about repented sin, where you’ve repented, cut the cord on that thing. I’m talking about where you are openly living in the flesh and you open yourself to the enemy.
It’s not something where you mess up for a week. It’s continual. Same time every year you’re doing the same thing over again. Same time every year put my son in the ground. Listen to me. Do not think you are immune to death, or to the devil if you live outside of the will of God. Do not think that by osmosis you are going to walk in your birthright and your destiny, and then you’re going to live in greasy grace.
Grace is given to us so we don’t have to live in sin. Grace is given to us so we can live differently, so we can walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh. It’s going to come back to the heart. Who do you really love? Who do you really belong to? Are you more a friend of the world than you are a friend of God?
Today for you and me and for the body of Christ, and it’s going out to a nation, you are at a crossroads place and you are going to determine whether you’re going into the fulness of your birthright and your destiny, or you’re not, in this season. And if you are going to be used by God. You can’t have it both ways.
The boats have drifted apart and you can’t have a foot in the world and a foot in the kingdom. You’re going to serve one kingdom or the other. You cannot serve mammon and God.
In the book of Isaiah it speaks of God allowing a perverse spirit to be mingled in the midst of Egypt because of their continual sin and disobedience. The Lord has mingled a perverse spirit in her midst and they have caused Egypt to err, and all her work as a drunken man staggers in his vomit.
I found out the perverse spirit means to be dizzy. It means to be in chaos. It means to be in confusion. If you are dealing with confusion, if you are dealing with dizziness, mind-binding things, more than likely it is a bloodline issue with the perverse spirit.
What is a perverse spirit? The perverse spirit is at war with everything that is God’s order. It is at war with morality. It is at war with purity, righteousness, goodness, and friend. It is at war with you. The perverse spirit will create strife and looks for reasons to go to war.
Perversion is defined as the condition of being perverted or corrupt. It is straying away from the natural to the unnatural.
What is a broken spirit? A broken spirit, evil actions, abortion, child abuse, a filthy mind, doctrinal error, twisting the Word, chronic worrier, foolishness, contentious. The spirit of perversion rises out of the heart.
Perverse, definition: It is willfully determined or disposed to go counter to what is expected, desired, or contrary; characterized by or proceeding from such a determination; wayward or cantankerous; persistent or obstinate in what is wrong; turned away from or rejecting what is right, good, proper; wicked or corrupt.
The Lord says, Let no corrupt communicate come out of your mouth. We’re back to the mouth. For over three years we’ve been dealing with the mouth. The Lord has come again and again and again to you and me to deal with our issues. I think he has been so about us being in the right place at the right time so that we can fulfill our purpose.
Because he loves us, he has set us up for today. I don’t know all that he’s going to do within, but I know he is going to root out iniquity, transgression, and any sin.
We’re going to worship. I don’t want anyone to come into this altar because you think someone is watching you or it’s the expected thing to do. If you don’t want to be delivered and you just come, it says when you bind the strongman and cast him out, it will go through arid places seeking a place of rest. When it doesn’t find it, it will come back to the house that it occupied. If the house is swept clean and put in order but it’s not occupied, it will take seven other spirits in with it, and the condition of the man will be worse than at the first.
If you really want to be delivered, and you are ready and really want Holy Spirit to search you and find whatever it is. Some things he is going to show you up front. If you know you are dealing with a Galatians list of rage and jealousy and anger and factions. If you have prejudice.
I want you to think about this. I know we identify people. I have never had to identity someone as a white woman or white man. Why do white people identity by that black man, etc. I understand sometimes for identification, but I want to ask you, have we shifted now from the black/white issue to those Hispanics? I don’t want to hear that in this house. That is not who I am.
I do not want profiling, whether it be because of gender or sexual orientation or skin color. It kills revival. It’s called a spirit of slavery. It is the height of pride. If you have a prejudice running through your bloodline, it is really a pride issue. I’m telling you the truth today. There are things that kill revival. There are things that kill moves of God.
When the Brownsville Revival was going on, Lila Terhune who was the prayer leader over that move of God, said to us when she visited our church, If you want a move of God, a revival, do you have a man/woman issue in this church? Do you have a black/white prejudice skin issue in this church? I could answer that up front. Yes Yes Yes.
But I do know this. If the Lord can clean out the leadership, and the leadership will stay clean, it won’t matter. Because he will ultimately deal with the rest of the house. Or they will go. I’m not about building the body. I’m about building the kingdom. Jesus builds his church. If we want to build the kingdom, we’re going to have to build people. And we’re going to have to allow the Lord to do in us and remove the bad construction.
Has anyone built something or had a builder work for you and it’s done the wrong way? And you had to rip the whole thing out? Any structure in my life or your life that is not built correctly, it will not stand in what’s coming.
For you to stand and for us to support the move of God, we are going to have to be a clean house. It doesn’t mean, I can’t tell Betty. She’ll put me out the door. I’m so messed up. That’s when you need to be running. If I’m dealing with an issue, I need to run to a trusted individual and say, The enemy is hitting me here. Let’s lock shields and pray together. Our first response is not to put you out the door. It’s to bring restoration in your life.
People that have known me and dealt with me over the years, when something first hits a platform or a leader in the house, my first response is not to sit them down, but to say, How do you want to do this? It depends on what they’re dealing with. If you need to take a break, or if you can receive deliverance and we can walk this out together, then fine. But if not, you’re going to sit down until you’re healed and whole. I don’t believe you have to sit out for a year. It’s about restoring the individual and listening to Holy Spirit.
I’ve seen people that have kept their place and God did the work in them. I’ve seen other people that didn’t. They just kept going back to it. If you have an issue in your life, and every month or every other month it’s coming up again, you need to sit down for a while. We need deliverance teams in here. Where are you that can minister deliverance to people?
There is a whole multi-faceted ministry of Jesus. He is going to cause Miracle City to be a one-stop shop. And he is going to perfect us in one. Are y’all with me? When you go out to war, you want to know who’s beside you. I am not a shepherd who abandons the sheep when the wolf comes. I’m not going to be running away from the wolf. I’m going to be running towards the wolf.
I want to know when we go to the battlefield that you’re going to be standing there with me. I want to know that who’s standing beside you is going to be standing there. I want to make sure you don’t have an open place in your armor where you’re shot. I’m not going to leave you on the battlefield to die. I’m going to pick you up.
If you’re in this house today and you hear the Lord calling you again, and you know he has destined you for such a time as this, you are part of the Core of this house. You have a ministry outside of this house. But you are saying to the Lord, Father, in this season of the flood, where you are wanting to press the anointing out of my life in such a way that I am perfected in one, one Spirit, one Lord, one baptism, I want you to go to the very core of my being and where demonic strongholds have been in my life; where the perverse spirit has run through my bloodline and even oppressed me; any place in my life where I have given place to the devil or made provision for the flesh, I want to be delivered.
I want to be set free. I want Betty to be set free. I want Anna to be set free. I want Kimble to be set free. I want to be set free. I want our children to be set free. I want to be delivered from addiction. I want to be delivered from depression and oppression. I want to be delivered from lesbianism. I want to be delivered from homosexuality.
I want to be delivered from every ungodly attachment, from every ungodly belief, from every ungodly mindset. I want to be delivered, Lord. I want to be delivered from cursing and profanity and rage and murder. I want to be delivered from pride and self-will and self-ambition.
I want to be delivered from obstinance and stubbornness and witchcraft and occultic powers. I want to be delivered from generational and familiar spirits. I want to be delivered from fear. I want to be delivered from mental illness. I want to be delivered from shame. I want to be delivered from regret and death. I want to be delivered from a spirit of gossip and slander, that thing that takes hold of me and I can’t wait to tell somebody what somebody’s done to me or what so-and-so did or what so-and-so said.
I want to be delivered from uncovering people because love covers a multitude of sins. I want to be delivered from abuse. Lord, I was abused as a child and I’ve become an abuser. I want to be delivered. I want to be delivered of verbal abuse.
I want to be delivered of those demonic spirits that have taken hold of my body, and it affects my physical body. I want to be delivered of infirmity of the soul. Oh, Jesus. I want to be delivered down to the very cellular level of my body.
If you are thinking right now, She didn’t name it, He’s named it because he’s made you aware of what it is.
Holy Father, bring your goodness right here right now. Holy Father. Jesus.
I want to be delivered from perverse dreams. I want to be delivered from captivity to satan. I want to be delivered from confusion and mind-binding spirits. I want to be delivered from procrastination. I want to be delivered from accusation, being accused, and accusing others.
I want to be delivered from not taking responsibility but always blaming others. If you have talked about somebody in the last three days, and uncovered somebody in an ungodly way, repent right now.
What I saw and I’ve seen in real life, the very thing you are accusing other people of, I’ve seen it come back on the individual like crazy confusion. And I’m thinking, You’re saying this about them and now you’re manifesting it. Like a boomerang, it’s going to come back and hit us. Compulsive disorders. Character assassination. Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but what is useful for building up others.
It says, Do not grieve Holy Spirit. Father, we repent for any place that we have grieved you. Lord, we repent for sin, for iniquity, and transgression. Lord, we ask you, Create in us a pure heart, oh God. Just let him do the work. I can’t do it for you but he can. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of the Living God, I say, Freedom (13 times)
🎶Jesus, deliver us. Freedom. Freedom. Falling on my knees in worship, giving all I am to seek your face. Lord, all I am is yours. I called. You answered and you came to my rescue. I can feel your heart as it beats for me.
Anna. Oh Lord, we declare your heartbeat becomes our heartbeat, and then the rhythm of your heart drives out anything that’s not of you. Lord, set us in rhythm with you. May our heart beat with the rhythm of life, with the rhythm of Holy Spirit.
🎶Make my heart beat like your heart beats. Set me at one with you. Perfect in one.
Betty. He’s dropping his plumb line in us. He’s making every crooked place straight right now. He’s bringing you into alignment—spirit, soul, and body. By the power of Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus, he’s realigning. He’s resetting. As he’s dropping his plumb line, as he’s bringing you into alignment, it is going to push out, it’s going to drive out every ungodly structure. It’s going to drive out every demonic spirit. Oppression, out.
Satan, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we bind you. We render your rulers, authorities, powers of darkness, spirits of wickedness, all thrones and dominions, every demonic spirit and human spirit that is set against the people of God in this room, anyone that is going through deliverance at home, generationally, territorially, familiar spirits, we bind, we uproot, we tear down, we overcome, we drive out of our lives, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Right now we cast out every demonic spirit, every demonic stronghold.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through our God to the pulling down of strongholds. I decree and declare that strongholds in our lives are torn down, even in your home or the territory, the land where you live. We go to the very core, the very place, and I decree and declare.
Father, I repent for idolatry. Lord, any place of idolatry in our lives or in our land. Any place that we have exchanged the glory of God for worthless idols, the truth of God for a lie. Any place where we have given ourselves over to a lying spirit. Where we are constantly exaggerating the truth. Repent right now.
White lies are lies. We repent where we have looked to anything else as our source other than you, the one true God. This is not a swap-off season. The Lord says you won’t be delivered from alcoholism only to overeat. Every avenue the enemy as come against you, I decree he is driven out, in the name of Jesus.
Idolatry, broken covenants, innocent bloodshed. Somebody said, I didn’t murder anybody. Well, you have such an anger issue that you murder people every day with your words. You’re releasing a spirit of murder and death into your home. Stop it. You’re releasing a spirit of murder and death into your workplace. Stop it. Haha. The Lord didn’t just say, Stop it, to you. He said, I’m putting a stop to it right now.
I’m going to do for you what you’ve not been able to do in your own strength. I’m going to deliver you first from those things that are stronger than thou art strong. I’m the one doing the uprooting today. I’m coming to destroy the Destroyer that has tried to corrupt you in your life and destroy your family and your marriage. I’m going to bring healing to you all the way back to the womb and pre-womb.
Where the perverse spirit came in at conception, I’ve come to deliver and heal you. Where disease came in at conception, I’ve come to heal and deliver you. Immorality, Lord, we repent of immorality. Not just sins we’ve put action to, but the ungodly things in our mind that we let come in. We repent for defiling our ear gates and eye gates by what we watch and what we listen to. I ask that where we’ve brought defilement or where we’ve been defiled in our physical and spiritual senses, Lord, I ask you to come and cleanse.
Spirit of error, Lord, we repent for a spirit of error. Where we have deviated from the Word of God and foundational truths. We repent for controlling people. We repent for any disobedience to you or your word, your will, or your way for our lives. We repent.
I hear the Lord say it’s time for the binding up. He’s even dealt with things for us that we didn’t even know about. Now it’s time for the infilling and the binding of the hurt and the fragmented places. The Lord says any unforgiveness, any place you are holding someone—you say, You just don’t know what they did—the Lord says, If you will receive my grace right now, you’ll be able to forgive them once and for all. The same grace that saved you enables you to forgive. The Lord will deal with this situation.
The Lord says he is instituting something new for you. How about coming to Me and talking to Me about the circumstance and the situation? How about speaking to Me about the pain and the hurt or about what someone said. And how about letting Me deal with it now. If you keep doing the same thing that you’ve always done expecting a different result, well. The Lord says Change is here. Will you embrace it?
Lord, we say Yes. We embrace the grace for change. Angels are ascending and descending right now to help us. And heaven is open. Hei. In the name of Jesus, spirit, soul, body, we bind up the brokenhearted. Spirit, soul, body wholeness. Lord, come and heal and fill and work miracles, even creative miracles within us today. Bring fruit and fruit that stands, Lord.
🎶Strip everything away till all I have is you, Jesus. I will pursue you. I will pursue your presence. I’m pressing into you. Open my eyes. Search me inside. I can’t live without your presence. Give us clean hands. Give us pure hearts.
Anna. Lord, I thank you right now that you’re pouring out your healing anointing. That you’re pouring out your anointing for deliverance. Just as it’s the season to be purified, I thank you that you’re pouring out your myrrh, the anointing of your presence to purify your body. Lord, I thank you that you’re purifying your Bride, that you are preparing your Bride for the wedding ceremony.
Lord, I thank you for purification coming to our lives, your purification coming to our hearts, your purification coming to our mouths and our minds, to our motives, to our actions, to every relationship. Lord, I thank you for purification. I thank you that we walk in purity, that we become your pure vessels releasing your pure water right now in this hour.
I thank you for your water, your rivers of life coming out of your body, out of us. Father, I thank you for purification. We say, Purify us. Purify us. Purify us. Purify us.
🎶Purify me. Let that be your heart cry, your heart’s desire. Purify me…
Anna. The Lord says he has come in as the Father and he’s brought correction. He’s exposed areas this morning. Just like we’ve talked about in the return, that our hearts would return to our Father. If you have moved this morning, you have responded, your heart has turned towards the Father. And I see Jesus our Bridegroom coming in and touching hearts. He’s touching the heart of His Bride. He is alluring us with his words.
He is drawing us tenderly to Him right now. As we’re in this place, the Lord is touching your heart and he is bringing you back to those firsts. And he is bringing a purity to you like you have never walked in.
Lord, I thank you for your purity once again. I thank you for that fresh anointing. It’s the season for fresh anointing. Lord, I thank you that we’ve never been this way before. It’s not hype but it’s real. We’re being real because you are real, God.
🎶I receive what you’re doing. Nothing’s off limits. Nothing’s off the table. We receive your heart.
Anna. I’m hearing right now, Receive the heart of God. Like we say that our hearts would beat with his rhythm, it’s time for us to receive the heart of God. Love is making itself known to us right here in this place.
Father, we receive your heart. Jesus, we receive your heart. We receive your heart into ourselves because that’s what changes us. We receive your heart. We make room for your heart within us, God. We make room for your desires, the desires of your heart becoming evident in us, becoming our desires. Shift our desires to your desires for us.
Betty. This is a moment right now to redeem the time, the goodness and the love of the Father. I’m seeing my mother and my father before I was ever born. I’m seeing the Lord, not in an ungodly way, putting his hand on my mother’s reproductive organs, touching my mother where the eggs are stored and touching my father.
When I carried Anna in my womb, her future seed was already on the inside. I was hearing three generations were represented because the eggs to produce any child she would have were already present. When she fully formed in me, those eggs were already within her.
The Lord is going back. Regardless of your conception, and I understand some people were conceived through rape. It matters not how you were conceived. The Lord is touching the egg and the sperm before you were conceived. The bloodline issues, whether it be disease. Divorce runs in families. Heart disease runs in families. Abuse runs in families.
He is going back pre-womb for you and me and he is touching us before the egg and the sperm came together. He’s is going all the way there. Some of you are going to find out you got healed. Diabetes healed. High blood pressure healed. Mental illness healed. Central nervous system healed. Arthritis healed.
You may say, That was in my family but it never came to me. Well, don’t let it go past you. Don’t let it skip (to another generation). My parents had alcohol issues, but my siblings nor I have an issue. Do you understand? But in the next generation, well. It stops here today with me, Lord. Whatever has been running through the bloodline, let me now be infused with the power of your Spirit and the blood of Jesus, the only thing that can cleanse.
Jesus, you were crushed for our iniquity. You were bruised for our transgressions. You carried our pain and our sorrow. Let everything that you have done with your life, with your sacrifice, with your resurrection power now come in us and finish the work.
🎶You ask me to be your friend. You are my first, you are my last, you are my future and my past. It’s who you are. You are the beginning and the end.
Betty. So come and heal and fill every heart Lord, every life, Lord. Heal and fill. Come and re-mantle us, oh God. Come and reset and renew and fill us up, oh God. Baptize us afresh oh God, with your Spirit and with fire right now. We say Yes and Amen. We agree with every purpose and destiny standing in this place. That you will complete your birthright and your destiny. That you walk in the fullness and purpose of Almighty God.
God, that we would walk in the spirit of repentance; that we would turn our hearts and our minds continually to you. And Lord God, that your goodness would be so great with us and that you would presence yourself in such a way that we would walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Lord, there is no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus, for the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. So I decree and declare that no longer will the law of sin and death operate in us or among us. That if we mess up in any way, Holy Spirit would immediately convict us and then we would be quick to repent. That we will not be like one who hears the Word, like a man looking in the mirror who goes away and forgets what he’s seen and heard.
Father, I thank you that you are restoring vision to hearts right now. That you are life-ing and filling us with resurrection power and life. Father, how fitting it is that we seal this day with having a meal. For Lord, through the giving of your body and the shedding of your blood, you have redeemed us. You have set us free from the snare of the fowler, henceforth to do your will.
You have delivered us from the power of sin, death, disease, sickness, the works of the devil, and the devil himself. So Lord, as we come to your table today, awaken us in birthright and destiny. Awaken your Word in us, oh God. Awaken us in your presence and your power, into who you really are. Revive us, oh Lord. Restore us, Lord, that we may live in your presence.
We press on to acknowledge you today. Bring transformation and reformation. I just acknowledge that the presence of the Lord is tangible.
Today as you come to the Table of the Lord, I want you to come with the kingdom mindset being established in you. I want you to expect reconciliation and wholeness in your relationship with God. I want you to expect reconciliation with your fellow brothers and sisters. I want you to expect reconciliation in your marriage. I want you to expect reconciliation with your family. I want you to expect God to do it, not you to do. But God to do it.
I want you to expect healing in your physical body and healing in your mind, will, and emotions. Healing to your soul. I want you to expect God. I want you to expect life.
As you come to sow into the kingdom, bring your tithes; bring your offerings because that’s what the Word of God instructs us to do. Bring your first fruits. Sow a seed into what God has done right here. Sow a seed into Miracle City. Sow a seed into transformation and reformation. Sow a seed. Sow a seed into your deliverance. It’s doesn’t matter how large or how small. Sow a seed. It’s PayDay. It’s PeyDay.
Father, as we come, we thank you that you sanctify this matzo and this juice. As we come to the covenant meal, let transformation take place in every heart and every life. And as we have confessed before you today and presented ourselves for deliverance, Lord, we decree and declare that it’s to the root. And we’ve got new life springing up. Issues are made whole.
Physical bodies are healed. Back pain, out. Chronic headaches, out. Sinus infections, allergies, out. Stomach issues, out. Esophagus, swallowing issues, out. Death goes. Premature death broken. It’s a new day. We decree it and we declare it. Lord, bless the offering and multiply it to the sower. And multiply it to the kingdom, in Jesus name.
🎶I feel your goodness on the mountain. I saw your love down in the valley. Your grace still surrounds me. God, you’ve been good to me. My soul sings. With all my heart, I love you Lord. You’re my first love. You’re my reward. And through the years you’ve been good to me. So good to me. You’ve never failed me, no not once.
Betty. Kevin, that Jesus song. I want us, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, as an entire congregation and Miracle City family, Michael heard the word Freedom, that we were to decree it out three times. Together as one FREEDOM FREEDOM FREEDOM. Praise God.
We just want to honor Jesus, Father and Holy Spirit, because what God is doing here today is about bringing you into a place of intimacy with Him. It’s about Him doing the inside out work in you. Does that mean that we won’t love people if they mess up? Absolutely not. We’re going to walk with our brothers and sisters and people coming in, and see them come into a place of freedom. We’re going to extend grace and we’re going to love. Because it is the goodness of God that brings men to repentance. And it’s His goodness that’s going to keep you, and His love is going to keep you coming back, walking with Him.
As you go from this place this week, if something comes in to knock you down, repent quick. Don’t let shame take a hold. Walk in freedom and liberty because Holy Spirit is with you and in you to guard you and keep you and protect you.
So let’s exalt the name of Jesus.
🎶Jesus, friend forever.
Betty. Amen and Amen.
I knew some could not be here today, so I ask the Lord to do the Eldad/Medad thing. I ask the Lord, the same anointing that he released in here and the inside out work of what he has done, I ask him to do the same in the people who were not here, who are a part of this core. We are about to run and occupy in places we’ve never been before. And he is going to build his city and build his house. And we get to be a part of it.
Again, I do not want to communicate to you law or religion. I am communicating relationship. I’m communicating love and grace. But he is giving us an opportunity to come out of the old cycles and the things that have bound us.
