Judah Goes First
Anna Love. As I was asking the Lord what I was to share this morning, I was reminded of what we had been talking about for the last several weeks, that we’re in a season of dreams, that it’s a time for miracles. It’s time to testify your promise. It’s time to give a testimony of the good things that the Lord has done. Because whenever we begin to testify of what He has done, it makes way and lays the path for what he’s going to do.
Psalm 71:15-24. I will tell of your goodness all day long. I will speak of your salvation, though it is more than I can understand. I will go in the strength of the Lord God. I will proclaim your goodness, yours alone. You have taught me ever since I was young and I still tell of your wonderful acts. Now that I am old and my hair is gray do not abandon me, O God.
Be with me while I proclaim your power and might to all generations to come. Your righteousness, God, reaches the sky. You have done great things. There is no one like you. You have sent troubles and sufferings to me, but you will restore my strength. You will keep me from the grave. You will make me greater than ever. You will comfort me again.
I will indeed praise you with the harp. I will praise your faithfulness, my God. On my harp I will play hymns to you, the Holy One as Israel. I will shout for joy as I play for you and my whole being will sing because you have saved me. I will speak of your righteousness all day long, because those who have tried to harm me have been defeated and disgraced.
I believe Psalm 71 is the position that we should place ourselves in for this new season. Instead of looking at what we don’t have, or what we need, we’re looking at what the Lord has done, and we’re being prepared to step into what he is going to do. It’s as simple as changing our mindset.
How do you feel when you’re negative about everything? Or you hold onto dissatisfaction? Or what needs to happen? Or what should have happened? Or what you would have liked to happen? It doesn’t help anything. It makes you stuck and starts pulling you further and further and further into a pit.
I believe this season is a culmination of all the things we’ve been talking about and all the things the Lord has been showing us. But when we begin to understand the goodness of God, it’s the best part of himself. What is goodness? It’s excellence, it’s the best of the best, it’s that scripture coming alive—more than you could ask for, hope for, or imagine.
The goodness of God isn’t something you have to hype up or that you have to long for. It just is. All you have to do is say, God, I receive your goodness. Then you can let it start coming on you wave after wave because even in just saying, God, I receive your goodness, I can feel the goodness of the Lord coming in. If you believe it, you’ll receive it. You don’t have because you don’t ask.
So we’re asking for God’s goodness to come into this place. We’re asking for God’s goodness to come to our families, to our businesses, our workplaces, to our homes. What if we woke up every morning and said, God, I receive your goodness. I receive your goodness into my home. I receive your goodness into my commute into work. I receive your goodness in all these things. And it starts changing things.
If you’re tired, then that weariness starts going away. If you’re feeling sick in your body, that sickness starts going away. If you’re dealing with a hard situation, the weight that you’re bearing starts going away. It’s making an exchange with the Lord. It’s really doing the stuff. It’s practicing what we preach. It’s the truth.
If we’re going to expect God to do what he says, we need to position ourselves for it. Because if you’re not in the right position, you can’t receive what he has for you. God can have something set up for you in his time and you’re in that timeline, but if you’re not positioned to receive it, then you’re out of time.
I believe, like we’ve been saying, that we are in a fullness of time where the Lord is pouring out his blessings. He’s pouring out the things we’ve been waiting for. He’s pouring out his promises. I want to be positioned to receive everything he has.
I was reminded this morning that we are in the ninth Hebraic month, and this year has been all about birthing. And Danette, I believe the baby is here this morning. Whoo!
Goodness is moral excellence, virtue, kindly feeling, kindness, generosity, excellence of quality; the best part of anything, its essence and strength. I think it’s interesting that one of the definitions of goodness is strength. Because whenever you begin to feel the goodness of the Lord or good things start happening, it’s like it strengthens you in your inner man. It begins testifying to your spirit. Let’s testify to the goodness of God to build ourselves up, to build one another up. I know he has good, awesome things for us and all we have to do is receive it.
I shared last week that my word for 2020 is Restitution. The Restitution of something is when it’s restored. It’s restoring the thing that has been lost or stolen to its proper owner. It’s recompense for an injury or loss. And it’s the restoration of something to its original state. It’s the resumption of an object’s original shape or position.
I believe in that, anything that you have lost or that you feel like you’ve missed out on, or you feel like has been stolen from you, or even if you feel your destiny has been thwarted in some way, we are stepping into the restitution of the Lord. It’s not just taking us back. It’s taking us forward into everything the Lord has desired for us.
In this time of restoration I believe the Lord is saying more than ever to us, Jeremiah 33:3. Call me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. I believe this is what we’ve been doing for the last year. I know we’re always doing this, but I believe we’ve positioned ourselves as a house more than ever to do this scripture. And that the Lord has been revealing so much of himself to us and so much of what he’s doing, not just in this place but in the earth right now.
For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says about the houses in this city and the royal palaces of Judah that have been torn down to be used against the siege ramps and the sword in the fight with the Babylonians:
‘They will be filled with the dead bodies of the people I will slay in my anger and wrath. I will hide my face from this city because of all its wickedness. Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. I will bring Judah and Israel back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. I will cleanse them from all the sins they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins of rebellion against me.
Then this city will bring me renown, joy, praise and honor before all nations on earth that hear of all the good things I do for it; and they will be in awe and will tremble at the abundant prosperity and peace I provide for it.’
I believe this scripture testifies of where we are and where we will be in 2020. I believe we’re entering into a season of abundant prosperity and peace, that we will be in the awe of the Lord. We’ve been talking about the Amos 9 thing happening, where things happen so quickly it’s going to make your head swim. Well, I think our heads are going to start swimming because things are going to be so quick.
In the 10 year decade of PEY—and we’ve already entered into a PEY year—it’s so important what we say with our mouths. So if we begin testifying of the goodness of the Lord, if we begin testifying of miracles, if we begin testifying with the truth and get rid of the negativity in our lives and what comes out of our mouths, then it makes way for this scripture. It makes way to step into abundance prosperity. It makes way to step into peace. It makes way to just be in the awe of the Lord.
So not matter what comes—it doesn’t mean the trials of life won’t come because they will; but when they do you see them differently. Instead of seeing a setback, you think, Okay Lord, how are you going to use this? Or if it’s something you can’t explain, it doesn’t pull you into a bad place because you’re standing on the promise.
Lord, we receive your goodness this morning, and I just thank you that your goodness has come into this place in wave after wave after wave. Lord, we receive all you want to do this morning. We make room for you, Holy Spirit. I thank you that our mouths will testify of your good deeds, of your righteous acts. Lord, I thank you for everything, the miracles you’ve been doing in the last several weeks. I thank you that they are increasing.
Father, we make much of what you’re doing. We make much of what you’ve done. We prepare the way. We prepare the way for you to come in, King of Glory. Father, I thank you that we are stepping into the time where blind eyes are opened and deaf ears are opened, where the lame walk. Nothing is too hard for you.
Father, I thank you that we rise up in who you’ve called us to be, that our true identity is come to the forefront in our lives. So we can look at the situation, we can look at the mountain and we say, Move and be cast into the sea, and it is immediately. Father, I thank you that we are standing up in the dominion that you gave us in the beginning. Father, I thank you that we are standing up in our true nature as sons and daughters. We say Yes to it. We say Yes to what you’re doing.
Lord, I thank you that you’re opening our eyes and you’re opening our ears to see and hear. Lord, I thank you that it’s a restoration time. It’s a restoration of all things, Lord. I thank you it’s a restoration of dreams and visions. We love you, Lord, in Jesus name.
🎶I believe in you. You’re the God of miracles. I still believe you’re the same yesterday, today and forever. I was made for loving you, Jesus. I’m a lover of your presence. That’s all I wanna be.
Light my world with fire and rain, Jesus. Faith is not a feeling. I won’t stop when it’s hard. We worship you, Jesus. We are lovers of your presence. That’s all we wanna be.
When I don’t understand, I will choose you, I will love you, God. Your love is like fire shut up in my bones. Fire. Fire from my inmost being. We lift your name up higher.
We are your burning ones. I will sing of your goodness. You bring restoration to my soul.
Betty Love. Making me/us whole again. Bring restoration to my soul. Lord, we worship you. We magnify, we glory your name. Father, we thank you that you are the restorer of original intent. Father, we thank you that you never let go; you never give up. We just want to honor you today and yield our members unto you and come into agreement with your heart—restoration for us individually, corporately; restoration of your original design. We just want to honor you, Lord. We want to honor your unfolding plan. We want to honor your faithfulness to work in us.
We want to acknowledge that you are working, Father, even when we can’t see it, even when we don’t feel it. Jesus said, My Father is always working and I too am working. And Holy Spirit is working in us, church, to will and to act for the Father’s good pleasure, to complete the good work that has been begun in us.
🎶Even when I don’t see it, even when I don’t feel it, you’re working. You never stop working. That is who you are.
Betty. We acknowledge and we honor who you are, Lord. You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus. You are Way-maker for every believer in this house and every believer that is watching. You are our way-maker. You are our promise keeper. Because you are watching over your word to perform it in our lives.
You are not a man that you can lie or a son of man that you can change your mind. You will not violate your covenant or alter what your lips have uttered. Nothing is too hard for you. You’re the God of the possible. And we honor you as Promise keeper, because no matter how many promises God has made, they are not Yes and No, but they are Yes in Christ, and it’s through him, through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Lord Jesus living in us, by his spirit, that we say Amen.
It’s through Him we say Amen. We’re saying Amen to the Way-maker. We’re saying Amen to the Promise keeper. We’re saying Amen to the Light, to the Light of the world. His name is Jesus. And he’s made us to be light. 🎶Way-maker, promise keeper, miracle worker.
Miracles miracles miracles. An impartation of the gift of faith and the working of miracles like we’ve not experienced heretofore. Rapid Succession. Amos 9:13-15. O Lord, make our heads swim as Miracle worker, as the Way-maker, the Promise keeper. You are the Light in the darkness, and this morning we arise and shine. For our light has come. And the glory of the Lord has risen upon us.
The land living in darkness has seen a great light. We are your city on a hill, Lord, so we stand before you and we shine. And we shine. We release your light and glory. We are your luminaries. Shine bright through the night.
🎶We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.
Betty. Father, thank you for this Hebraic month of Kislev and that we are your people. You have poured out Holy Spirit upon us without measure, without limit. We thank you for the season and the time we are in of visions and dreams. And Lord, that you never do anything in the earth without revealing your plan to your people.
So Father, we welcome dreams and visions. Holy Spirit, we ask that you come and that you carry us today. I thank you for the word and the worship and the intercession that has already been released in this house coming into agreement with your perfect plan for us today.
Thank you, Lord God, that we have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the living God is speaking to the church. Father, I thank you this is your house, the place you hang your hat. We acknowledge the kingdom of heaven is a reality in this place today. That Jesus, you are working with us to confirm your word with signs following. That the power of the Lord is present to heal the sick. That you have presented yourself among us.
We want to acknowledge the Angel of the Presence of the Lord. We want to acknowledge the heavenly host. And we want to welcome the voices of heaven into this place. We thank you for the season of visitation and manifestation and we welcome it. We welcome you, Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Fullness, in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
God is good. I love the definition that Anna was sharing about the goodness of the Lord. I want to decree again again Psalm 126 and even reach into 127, because I want that to become alive in us. It’s where we are. It’s where your expectation is going to be. I’m going to begin teaching this morning on dreams and visions. Because I know that I know when you give place to the Word of God, if you teach healing, if you preach healing, if you speak healing, you’ll have healing.
We have been testifying about the miracles of God and we’re seeing miracles, miracles, miracles. Miracles in our families. Miracles in places where it looked virtually impossible. No word spoken by God is without power for fulfillment. And you are his mouthpiece. Yay God.
Psalm 126 TPT. Restored. A song of the stairway.
A song of the stairway. That means there is a way up and a way in, always. In fact, Jesus has made the way for you and me to fully enter into the Holy of Holies, to actually see into the realm of the Spirit, to actually commune with Him and Father and Holy Spirit. And not just with the Godhead, but actually have interaction with heaven, heavenly hosts.
Throughout the Word of God, from beginning to end, we read of and we hear of encounter. That encounter started in the Garden. The whole reason you and I are here is because God’s desire is for family. And you are fearfully and wonderfully made. There is no one on the face of the earth like you.
Before the foundations of the earth God purposed your life in Christ Jesus and he had a vision and a plan for you—and that plan has not changed. The gifts of God are without repentance. God does not change his mind about what he planned for you and me. He is a God of redemption. He is a God of restoration. And he is constantly putting you and me back on track.
Even when the enemy comes in like a flood, like a flood, God raises up a standard. He is never going to leave us or forsake us. You are his dream. He dreams of you and me. It’s just the truth. He is so about the dream being fulfilled for your life, that he gave his very best in Jesus. It’s in Jesus, through Jesus, by Jesus. No one comes to the Father but by the Son. And no one can come to the Son unless the Spirit draws.
Holy Spirit is drawing you and me, and God is ready and willing and able and is doing now exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask for, hope or imagine by his power that is at work within us. There is a working of his power within you, but there is a working of his power within the corporate body. And he is working every time that you and I come together. And there is power in agreement.
So the power of agreement, and the takeaway this morning is that you will dream dreams, and you will see visions. I want every consistent dreamer to stand to your feet right now—if you are a dreamer. If you see visions on a consistent basis, I want you to stand to your feet. I would like in particular Wanda and Nita to come and stand at the front. And I want the two of them to extend their hands. Because out of anybody and everybody I know, probably the most consistent seers and dreamers are standing right here. They’re not the only ones, and I think a lot are catching up with them in the house.
My first encounter with both of these women, when I met Wanda Sumrall, she was a seer. Not only was she a seer, she went in the realm of the Spirit, and not in a wrong way. It’s not a wrong way for you to hunger and thirst after righteousness. It’s not a wrong thing for you to want to see and hear and encounter God. It only becomes a wrong thing when you are green with jealousy and you want to be the only one. God is about mobilizing an army.
The ones who are standing, I want you to keep standing, because I’m going to pray a prayer, but I’m going to ask them to impart. If you’re a dreamer, you’re imparting dreams in the house to every born-again believer, and even to the non-believer that’s watching or will watch so that the Lord Jesus Christ will draw them unto salvation. I want them to impart the seer anointing.
I am a seer, but I also have the river, both streams flowing. I see and I hear. And I want every believer in this house to have full functionality in your spirit, in your gifts, in your person as a son of God. Because I believe every born-again believer—we are a prophetic people ordained by God to know the will of the Lord, to see him, to hear words from his mouth, so that you can be a witness of what you’ve seen and heard. And we are in the time and the season.
Until Jesus comes again there will be young men seeing visions and old men dreaming dreams. It is part of who we are. There will be people speaking forth the heart, the mind, the counsel of God. Sons and daughters prophesying. He said, Even on my menservants and maidservants I will pour out and they will prophesy. We are destined. It’s our destiny. It’s more than a destiny. It’s your birthright to hear and to see and to walk in the fullness of God on earth as it is in heaven. You are his manifestation.
So in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whatever he puts in their mouths to release, we release the apostolic anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ himself upon every born-again believer in this place and those that are watching and will watch. We release the prophetic anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ upon every born-again believer. We release the evangelistic anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ upon every born-again believer, upon every son of God.
We release that pastoral anointing upon the sons of God, upon every born-again believer. We welcome the anointings of the five-fold minister. His name is Jesus. We welcome the teacher anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ into Miracle City.
I decree and declare that the spirit of blindness and deafness is bound from the people of God. I decree and declare that the spirit of witchcraft and fear and perversion is bound from the people of God in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Plumb line us, Lord. Plumb line us with you, Father, with Jesus and with Holy Spirit in Jesus name.
Wanda Sumrall. Father, (I impart) not only your goodness, but your ability to see, your ability to travel and see the wonders that you’ve prepared for us, because we cannot imagine until you open our minds and our hearts and our spirits to see and encounter and witness and experience all that you have prepared for us.
There is a realm and we step in it by faith. Step in now. By faith we step in. We step into it. We receive. No fear. No fear. No fear. I bind fear in Jesus name. I bind the occult in Jesus name. I bind darkness. The hand of the Lord is stretched out pushing back the darkness. He will not allow you to be overcome by the enemy. He wants you to see his goodness. He wants you to see all that he has prepared for you. So just receive it. Say, Lord, I receive it. I receive it.
Ezekiel did this. The first time I experienced it, I questioned it. I said, Lord? He sent me straight to Ezekiel. You can have those experiences like Ezekiel had. I have had those experiences. I continue to have those experiences. The Lord said to tell you of the place he just opened up to me and showed me in the last few days.
It was like a cavern and it had the most beautiful jewels in it I’ve ever seen, every color that you could imagine. The whole place was covered in it, on the floor, and they sang. I heard sound. There was music coming forth from them.
What came to me was Lucifer and the beauty that the Lord had put in him. I thought, Lord, how could he walk away? But see, Lucifer thought he was all that. He thought HE was all that. He forgot who his creator was. He forgot who the creator made him to be and why he created him, what he created him for.
He has created us with beauty in us. He has created us with sound in us. But it’s because of what we’re created for and who we’re created for. So walk into that place, into that place where there’s beauty and there’s sound and there’s music, because that’s what you’re created for.
He holds us together. He’s the One who holds us together with his hand and with his word. And when I step into that realm of everything he’s created and when you step into that place of things he created, he created it for us. We’re created to experience that. Because that’s who we are.
We’re in the earth realm but we were created for the spirit realm, too. And everything he has is yours. The enemy cannot pervert that. It is pure. It is holy. And you are created to experience that. I release that to you now in Jesus name. Eyes open. Eyes open. Eyes open. Spirits open. Hearts open. No fear. No fear. The enemy has no place here. This is all God. He is your creator and he created you for this in Jesus name.
And I believe that as a corporate body we are going to experience this. We are going to go to places that were created for us to be in so that we can lead others there. I release it and I say, Eyes open. Eyes open. Eyes open in the spirit realm in Jesus name.
Nita Maselle. In the dreaming, there’s comprehension, there’s impartation. It’s experiential. It changes you. You can go to bed one way, have a dream, and wake up with a whole new countenance. It’s God-given and it’s to interact with you, to teach you, to train you, and to put you where he wants you to be.
One thing I kept getting today is that he so wants to develop us to carry ministry in a work that is longterm. So many times we’re shortsighted and we look at this circumstance that I need changed, and I’m just looking at this. I need that. But the Lord wants us to be able to carry a ministry work with longevity into the generations that affect more. So it matters how you build. Character matters. What he does with dreams—he will teach you and interact with you. He will touch you and he will bring what’s needed.
On top of that, he will show you how to pray. He’ll show you how to counteract what the enemy is trying to do. He’ll show you answers and how to go solve a problem. He’ll give you miracles. He’ll show you the future so then you’ll find yourself in that place and, Oh I had that dream. This is what was said and this is what was done and now I know what to do and what to say here.
It’s a preparation. It’s a preparation to be able to carry the word of God. Yes, he’s in your dreams. Lord, I just ask that you impart to them the ability to dream and Lord, I ask that you bring it to their remembrance. And Lord, I ask that you cause them to have a heart to steward it, to develop and steward it. The more you do with what he gives, the more that he opens up to you. You might have a dream, and then something happens, which I had recently. He gives a dream and then Boom! you have prophecy coming on top of it. He just added and added and there was a purpose for that dream. And you were able to walk it out. It’s assignments. It’s assignments.
So Father, I thank you that interpretation comes by the Lord, by the Spirit. So Father, I thank you that they will not try to interpret with their mental capacity or memorized things, but I thank you they will learn to steward the dream and interpret by the understanding that comes with it by the Spirit.
Father, I thank you that you cause them to have a heart to comprehend. You’re communicating with us. And Lord, we say Yes to the conversation with you. Yes to the impartation. They walked with him and he spoke with them and it affected them. It changed their life. Their countenance changed. That’s what he’s doing in the dreams.
So Father, we say Yes. We open ourselves to receive whatever you’re trying to convey, however you want to convey it. Lord, we thank you for the understanding and the interpretation that goes with it. That we’ll be patient to steward it, to write it down, to let you speak to us what you’re saying in the dreams.
Some are difficult. Some are parabolic. Some have a lot of symbolism. Sometimes nobody can interpret it because it’s in the future. Or he does it in a way that connects to you. He’ll use your language. He’ll use your experience to convey a message.
So Father, I thank you for that. I declare impartation of dreams and interpretation, the gifts of interpretation. And Lord, I ask for a Spirit of understanding to come upon them, that would rightly divide the word, that they would be able to understand and function with the Holy Spirit in that dream language in the name of Jesus. I thank you for it.
Father, I thank you for impartation in the dreams. I thank you that you’ll touch us and touch our countenance and we’ll be changed and never the same. Lord, I thank you that you bring direction, that you bring confirmation, that you bring intercession for others, and the prayers that change things, the prayers that stop the enemy in his path and what he’s trying to bring, and it puts a stop to it in the name of Jesus.
Lord, I thank you for effective dreams, effective prayers, effective ministry out of it in the name of Jesus. And Lord, I thank you that you train us, you teach us, and that you are developing us to carry the work of the ministry that you are trying to pour out now. Lord, that it would be a longterm work, that it would be generational. I thank you for that in the name of Jesus.
Betty. Father, right now in the name of Jesus I impart the gift of discerning of spirits. I decree and declare over every believer that you will see in all three realms of the spirit according to Holy Spirit’s working in you and carrying you. That you will see and discern into the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus. That you will see and discern the demonic at the appointing of Holy Spirit, not to fear there. Hahaha.
That you will discern the human spirit and you will be able to distinguish between the three and you will be able to recognize the difference.
Father, I thank you that in all nine gifts of the Spirit there is full functionality in every believer in this room. The word of wisdom and the word of knowledge, the gift of faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues and interpretation. Let there be full functionality in our gift mix and the gifts of the Spirit, in our lives, in our dreams, because you work through those gifts.
Even in the dreams, Lord, you’re bringing words of knowledge and you’re releasing the gift of faith. So Lord, we say all nine functioning. And not only that, Lord, we pray for the fruit of the Spirit now to manifest and abound in each one of our lives, in our relationships—love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.
I decree and declare that we will not be a people out of balance. But Lord, let the fruit and the gifts flow in harmony in our lives. Let there be a reset and a realignment and a plumbing in your truth and your righteousness and your shalom, and your faith, Jesus. We’re putting salvation on as a helmet, and your Word. The word of God. The word of God.
The word of God will come to us in dreams and it will divide our soul and spirit, our joint and our marrow, and it will judge the thoughts and the attitudes of our hearts, bringing healing, bringing revival, bringing restoration, reformation, and transformation to our lives, to our circumstances.
As a born-again believer in this room, you have a heavenly language within your spirit man whether you’ve ever released it or not. But for those that have already released that heavenly language—and if you haven’t, you just praise the Lord—but I want us to begin to stir up our most holy faith. I want us to build ourselves up by praying in the Holy Ghost. I want us to begin to utter mysteries out of our spirit.
I believe this with all of my heart, something that continually has been a marker in Kimble’s life, all through the night there is a continual intercession in the Spirit. He is praying in his heavenly language and I believe that becomes a gateway for even more dreams and visions to come to him. Because throughout the night he is building himself up. I want to encourage you today to expect God, because there is a release within us even now, so let’s just begin to pray in the Holy Ghost. Release your sound. Reset in Jesus name. Thank you, Lord.
How many of you are experiencing that impartation right now? You can have a vision with your eyes closed where you just see within. There is no lesser here. Praise God for every vision, every word, every encounter that you have with God. You can see with your eyes wide open. It’s called an open vision.
Many times, what some of us have experienced, as Wanda began to describe her vision, where she went, I’m there. I can see it. I have been in prayer groups with intercessors whose vision is turned on; we are praying and we’re at the same place in the spirit realm in that vision. How does that happen? It’s because we have one Lord and one Spirit. And he is able to connect you and me so that we can all see the same thing at the same time. How cool is that? Because it’s real.
And the kingdom of heaven is within you now. You and I are connected to heaven because the kingdom of heaven is a reality living on the inside of you and me now. We are in the kingdom. We’ve been translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. So it’s time. The Lord is saying it’s time to turn on the lights. It’s revelatory.
Psalm 126 TPT. It was like a dream come true when you freed us from our bondage and brought us back to Zion. We laughed and laughed and overflowed with gladness. We were left shouting for joy and singing your praise. All the nations saw it and joined in, saying, “The Lord has done great miracles for them!” Yes, he did mighty miracles and we are overjoyed. Now, Lord, do it again. Restore us to our former glory.
May streams of your refreshing flow over us until our dry hearts are drenched again. Those who sow their tears as seeds will reap a harvest with joyful shouts of glee. They may weep as they go out carrying their seed to sow, but they will return with joyful laughter and shouting with gladness as they bring back armloads of blessing and a harvest overflowing.
I believe that is where we are. He is bringing it back. And he is going to cause you and me to bring back armloads of blessing. We are in the season of joy. It’s not by accident that Kimble’s word for 2020 is Joy, Unspeakable Joy. That says to me that the Lord is infusing Kimble with strength, but what does that mean to me? That means the Lord is infusing our marriage, our family, Miracle City, with Joy and Strength, so that we can do the ‘all things’ through Christ who strengthens us.
Kimble. Joy is also revelation and understanding.
Betty. If you do not know what time it is then you will not know what to expect.
PowerPoint. Kislev. His Confidence. The very meaning of the time and the season of where we are is: the Lord wants to bring forth his confidence in you and me. Regardless of what we see with our eyes, hear with our ears in the natural, no matter with it looks like, the Lord want us to be confidently assured of his goodness and that what he has promised you and me he will fulfill. He is never late. That is really the truth. We might feel like it sometimes, but he is never late. He is always working his redemptive plan for our lives.
We’re in the ninth month and I want you to expect to give birth. We’re finishing out 2019 and it’s about birthing vision, about birthing the promises of God. It’s the promise, Kimberley, where the Lord says, Do I bring to the point of delivery and not deliver? He is an on-time deliverer. Our response is to agree with what he says.
Yes, Lord, you’re an on-time deliverer. We’re in the ninth month. We’re in the season of birthing. I want the vision. I want the plan. I want what you’ve ordained for me and mine to come forth in Jesus name. My expectation is that you’re going to do what you say you’ll do in this season.
I love what Danette said. We don’t follow the Hebraic calendar. The Hebraic calendar follows us as born-again believers. You can put it away, and I guarantee you, by the Spirit, Holy Spirit will be doing in you and me what Israel is doing by tradition. We’re doing it by the Spirit because the Creator King is living on the inside of us. We have a mainline to heaven and it will not be cut off because he’s never going to leave us and he’s never going to forsake us, even when we feel like he is a million miles away.
Holy Spirit has made a commitment to you because of the Father and because of what Jesus has done. And he is the earnest. He will never let you go. Ever. How do we know there is a Kislev. Because it’s in the Word of God. Nehemiah 1:1. In the words of Nehemiah, son of Hakaliah, in the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa.
There is a time and a season that God moves. You can look throughout the Word of God, and they are saying, In the month, In this year, In this, and where I was. He’s telling us where he is and when it took place. God moved on Nehemiah with a vision for rebuilding. I believe that we are entering into the decade of kings where we are going to kingdom build, and that kingdom building is going to start with the dream and the vision of God. You need dreams and visions.
SAMEKH. Brad did such an incredible job of bringing this word, but it is so important, the connection with where we are in this month and this season, with 2020, that I am going back to it. Trust, Support, Coming full circle.
Jacob had an encounter in a dream. In the very beginning, his mother had a word from the Lord about the older serving the younger. It was a prophetic word. Now whether she went about helping it happen and created a whole lot of turmoil and havoc in her home, I don’t know. All I know is that Jacob was destined before the foundations of the earth to receive the birthright and the destiny of the elder son, even though he was the younger one.
As a result of the way they went about it, it caused Jacob to have to flee for his life. Esau sold his birthright for a pot of porridge. Then even though he sought it with tears, it couldn’t be restored to him. Why? Because there was a word a long time before that. We know the story of Jacob. I don’t know of very many believers that have been a believer and in church any length of time that doesn’t know about that stairway coming down out of heaven.
Jacob is fleeing for his life and he finds a stone, lays his head on it, and goes to sleep. Then he has a dream, the Bethel dream. Heaven is open. There’s a portal and there’s a door, and angels are descending and ascending. And the Lord himself is standing at the top of the stairs. Then the Lord gives him the covenant promise in word. It’s about his destiny. It’s about his birthright. It changed his life.
Surely the Lord is in this place and I didn’t know it. This is none other than the house of God. How is it that we’re at 416 East Pine? And Danette just happens to think, let me look up what 416 means in Strong’s Concordance? House of God. This is a Bethel place. This is where he abides, where he dwells. There’s a portal and you’re it. It’s the truth.
It’s coming full circle. Jacob came full circle. We know the same trickster stuff he pulled on his brother, he got tricked. And instead of serving seven years, he had to serve Laban fourteen years. It’s like this. If God is with you, you’re going to prosper. If you are yielded to the Lord and he is with you, you’re going to prosper. So it didn’t matter how many times Laban was unrighteous and changed Jacob’s wages, he just kept prospering. You know how? Because he had a dream.
God gave him a dream about the sticks and the water trough and what to put before those sheep so they would multiply. So keep changing it and I’ll just keep doing what God tells me to do in a vision or a dream. And I’ll keep getting the same results as long as I keep my heart in line with the Lord and yielded to him, and just do what he says.
So Jacob knew about dreams and visions. Then on the way back he has another encounter where he wrestles with God. I think that was an interactive vision. I think he really wrestled with the Angel of the Lord. I think he had a true encounter where he wrestled with God and the Lord changed his name. But it was only when he came full circle back to Bethel that he became known as Israel. And that all came back in a dream and a heavenly encounter.
God has encounters for you through dreams and visions. Nita flipped me out. I hope you listen to people. In listening to Nita in the early ears when I first met her, she was telling me, Oh this was my dream, and this episode, and this episode. I’m like, you said episode? You dream in episodes? What? You can have dreams that are in episodes. Have you ever awakened out of a dream only to go back to sleep and go back into that dream? Have you had a dream and then years later you’re back in that same dream again? It’s amazing.
The blessing of Rest. The Lord wants us to trust him. He is confident in who he created us to be. He is confident in his plan to transform us and get us there. The blessing of rest. Dreams will bring restoration in your life. The same word for dream is also the same word we get for restoration of health. The Word of God tells us that where there is no vision the people perish. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
I believe the enemy’s intent is to take the dreams and the visions of God from our lives. And to cause us to feel like there is no hope. But I want you to know that my expectation is that your hope will be restored, and my agreement for you every day is that you will walk in your birthright and your destiny.
Psalm 127. Unless the Lord builds the house it’s builders labor in vain.
We could say enough said right there. I want you to know that you are his house. A generation is also called a house. A family is also called a house. And we are the family of God. We are the house of God, individually and corporately. Unless He builds the house of Miracle City Global, we are spinning our wheels. Because if he doesn’t build it, it will not stand.
But I am confident of this, he is building his house. He is building you. He is doing this thing. We are in a ten year season that I know for us as a ministry, as a house, as a land, that he is kingdom building. I want to invite the Builder, the Lord as the Builder—we’re the building; He’s the builder—i want to invite him to build you and to build us. And he will build off of a vision and a dream that he carries in his heart. He has a blueprint.
Never is anything built in the earth that didn’t originate in heaven. So I want your expectation to be: God is going to revision me. He’s going to give me new dreams. He’s going to reach into the awe and he’s going to remind me of what he has ordained for me and those I’m connected with. Build us, Lord.
:2 Unless the Lord watches over the city the watchmen stand guard in vain.
He is a God who watches over cities. I loved when Beau and Marion were here on 11/11 and Beau taught about the land. He opened with Deuteronomy about the eyes of the Lord being on the land from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. The Lord is the Watchman.
I agree with Dutch Sheets that we are in the season and entering into the 2020s, the year of the Watchmen. Unless he is watching through you and me, through the watchmen watching over the city, we’re laboring in vain. You can’t build. You can’t watch unless he’s doing it. So as watchmen, as intercessors, as sons of God, Lord, open our eyes to watch, to see, the way you’re seeing.
Let us see the city the way you’re seeing it. When I first came down to East Pine and Anna and I were down here, she knew all along this was where we were supposed to head. I saw this building in a different light. I didn’t see what some people saw. All I knew was that it was the spot.
When Nita walked in she said, It’s my dream. I’ve been here before. He confirmed the building and the place through a dream. There was no doubt. We had looked all over, from Collins to Ellisville to Laurel to down here, through the city. He kept coming back to this building because he chose it.
Nita. There are not a lot of differences in dreams and the visions. They’re all impactful. It was a vision in a service. At the end of the service, all of a sudden I opened my eyes and I was in here worshipping. I could still hear the worship but I was in this building worshipping. I was here in worship. I just couldn’t find it in the natural. She found it and then I knew this was it.
Betty. This—five verses—and it’s a powerful punch. It says,
You rise up early and you stay up late toiling for food, but the Lord provides for his beloved even while she sleeps.
While you and I are sleeping, he is providing. He is. He already knows what you and I are going to need before we know what we need. Jeremiah 33:3. Call unto me and I will tell you things you know not of, fenced in things. Mr. Floyd, he already has our provision. And the provision is on the path. That’s something Chuck Pierce released in January, 2018.
He said when you allow the Lord to align you with his plan, and you’re in the plan of God, on your path will be provision, what you need. Divine Providence.
Anna Love. Providence is the foreseen care and guidance of God over the creatures of the earth. God, especially when conceived as omnisciently directing the universe and the affairs of humankind with wise benevolence. The manifestation of divine care or direction. Provident or prudent management of resources; prudence. It’s foresight and provident care.
Betty. In other words, God sees. He has foresight to know what you and I are going to need because he’s all-knowing and all-seeing. The foreseeing care and guidance of God over the creatures of the earth. Even the dictionary attributes Providence to God. We’re not looking up Divine Providence. I’m looking up providence and it recognizes God is the One who provides. He is pro-vision. He is for the vision of God on your life. And that comes with tools and gifts necessary. And provision for you to carry out your assignment.
The Divine Providence. The month to enter into a new level of trust and support. When we sleep at night, it’s a form of trust. When we close our eyes, we are trusting that our Creator is taking care of us and that we are going to awaken to another day. Very few people, unless they are being tormented or having a situation, are afraid when they go to sleep at night. There is just a confident trust that when you close your eyes that night, you will wake up again the next day. That is just a resting trust. That’s how it works. You are trusting as you’re sitting in this room. Was there any question when you sat down on this white chair whether it was going to support you or not today? The Lord wants us to have such a confidence and a trust in who he is, that he is going to support us through every season of life, that he will direct our steps and make them sure.
The letters that go together to make up SAMEKH, is first of all the faithful one who is bent plus the Lord’s encompassing support which spells out Miracle. We’re in the season of miracles. It’s our time.
So he wants us to rest. We’re hearing his voice because we’re in the season where he is saying, Today if you hear his voice, don’t harden your heart but take him at his word. Faith is working in this house.
Last Wednesday a week ago we came in here and we decreed a testimony. Something Nita said took hold of me a long time ago. Testimony is the key. She said a whole lot about testimony over time to me. Then I found the scripture where it says he has decreed a testimony for Jacob, and it came alive. I said, This is Nita’s scripture. This is what she’s been saying all along. Why has she been saying that? Because we overcome by the blood and the word of our testimony.
A testimony can come through a dream that brings a revelation or brings a warning or brings an intercession and then we pray that thing out. We steward the dream and then we have a testimony. She had a testimony. This is the building from my dream. You’re at the right place, Betty. This is our building. Even the windows up there are exactly like my dream, and the color. Can you dream in color? You absolutely can!
So we came in this place and we began to testify to miracles as an answer to prayer because Pat Bode wouldn’t let go. Praise God when the Lord puts a bee in your bonnet or a fire shut up in our bones and we won’t let go. Because we’re going to follow up on the prayer request and say, Hey, what happened to that mother and baby we’ve been praying for? What’s the update? Well, I don’t know.
Only to have the report of, the baby’s doing wonderful; but the mother, they can’t get the bullet out and the best they can hope for is a vegetative state IF she lives. I felt like I got gut-punched. Because I knew I could either let the testimony that was said come back or I could respond with faith saying, Our intercessors are praying and our God is able to do miracles. Only to have Olivia say, But God. She agreed. But God. That’s Monday.
On Tuesday morning, they come from the nursing home and the mother is making arrangements for her daughter to go into longterm care. They go into ICU and my friend, Olivia, texts me less than 24 hours later. I just got a Facebook live and my friend’s daughter is awake, responsive, and she waved to me out of ICU.
You in this room on that prayer feed along with other believers across this nation who prayed for her, God brought a miracle forth because an intercessor wouldn’t give up. Your intercession can tip a scale, change an outcome. And because of Pat’s persistence—and I’m exalting the Lord; thank God for who he made you to be—we went back to the prayer network, reposted to pray, this is the situation, and many of you in this room prayed. So we’re here on Wednesday night and we’re testifying.
In the midst of testimony, a stirring begins to stir for two men I know are bound in addiction and one headed for death. And the gift of faith, if he can do it for that—as long as there is a breath, there is hope. Don’t give up.
You might have to set some boundaries in your life with people because of their behavior. God is not about you being abused in a bad relationship. But you don’t ever have to let go of what God is saying. When he stirs, just keep agreeing with him. We said their names out loud and one week to the day, both men are on their way to rehab and they’re there now. That’s a miracle.
We in the season of dreams and visions and miracles. Some of you I’ve talked with this week have had miracles. You’ve had a shift in circumstances. Don’t let up now. Because it’s time.
Father, I thank you for what was released from the very beginning today in this place. I thank you for the dream, that you had the vision that you have, not had, for every believer that is here today and that is watching. And Father, I ask you to do it again. I thank you Lord God, that the dream season is upon us. I pray in the name of Jesus that every person in this room and those watching and that will watch this message will have God encounters and we will experience you in our dreams and in visions so that you can radically transform us and circumstances and situations.
We are your dreamers. Thank you for bringing restoration of health—spirit, soul, body wholeness—to each one of us. Let our homes and our sleep be filled with visions and dreams. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over every believer and those that are watching. That, Lord, you would reset and realign and release us in your original intent, your design, on earth as it is in heaven, in Jesus name. Praise God.
🎶You called my name and I ran out of that grave, out of the darkness to your glorious day. The old made new!
Kimble. Hallelujah! How many of you have run out of that grave? I saw the scripture in Ezekiel where the Lord asked him, Can these dry bones live? Can these dry bones live? There was a man by the name of Henry Ford and he made a statement one time. He said, If you think you can or you can’t, then you’re right. If you think you can do something or you think you can’t do something, you’re right.
But I heard Holy Spirit say that if you expect God can or you expect God can’t, you’re wrong. Because there is nothing our God can’t do. The only thing God can’t do—I can’t thing of what he can’t do. (people respond) He can’t lie and he can’t sin. He can’t fail. He can’t break his promises. And he won’t change his mind. He’ll never forsake us nor leave us alone as orphans.
Here’s the point I want to make today. Whatever it is you’re expecting, you’re going to get. If you’re expecting God to do something, God’s going to do it. But if you’re not expecting, it’s not going to happen. So what is your expectation level? What are you trusting for? What are you believing in? What are you holding onto?
You need to change your thoughts. You need to change your confession. Because our God is fully able to take care of everything that we desire. So raise your expectation level. Come on and get out of the ditch, and get on the road. Quit living your life on the shoulder. Get on the four lane and go go go in the direction he’s leading you.
If you keep looking back where you’ve come from, you’re not ever going to get to where you’re supposed to be going. We’ve got to quit living our lives in the rearview mirror. How many of you take off in your car, going down the road looking in the rearview mirror? You’re not going to go very far before you hit somebody or a pole or end up in the ditch. We are moving ahead. Expect God. Expect him to do what he said he’s going to do.
Unfulfilled promises—Lose the confession that God is never going to do this. It’s never going to happen. I’m here to tell you today, our God is faithful and true and he’ll always do what he says he’s going to do. Accept no substitutes and nothing less than what he said because he’s a good good Father, and he still does good things.
So Father, we’re here today to worship you. Father, I thank you that you have pulled us out of the miry pit. Our life in the natural may be messed up, but I know that your hand is upon us. You’re not going to leave us that way. And Lord we’re not going to accept that. We’re going to walk out and go forth and fulfill the purpose you created us for. Your hand is upon us and you are making a way where there seems to be no way. We trust in you.
Lord, give us that expectancy today to know that we know that you’re going to see us into the fullness of our purpose. Father, we’re not going to give up, put up, shut up, or back up. But Father, we’re going to go forth. We’re going to run strong. We’re going to be filled with your Holy Spirit, power, and joy. And we’re going to see the completeness of all that you desire for us to be and operate in.
Father, we bless you today and we say, Come, Holy Spirit. Breathe fresh new life, the breath of heaven into our midst, into our hearts. Open our eyes. Father, we have received that impartation this morning, that dreams and visions, signs and wonders, that miracles manifest in our midst. And that which we hope for, that which we dream of, Father God, it becomes reality to us, just as it is already reality to you.
We take hold of your reality, Lord, and we bring it into the earth so that we can go forth as your sons and your daughters declaring and displaying your goodness in Jesus name.
🎶Lane. God, I need you. Your forgiveness is like sweet sweet honey on my lips, the sound of a symphony to my ears, holy water on my skin.
Kevin. Peace that passes my understanding. Love that conquers my fear and regret. Joy unending, eternal pleasure in your presence, my risen King.
I will seek first your kingdom. I will seek first your righteousness. Everything I need, you will provide for me. My heart is to seek first your kingdom. You’re what I really want. You’re all I really need. Everything I’ve got, you’ve given it to me.
Betty. Seek first. When the Lord awakened me as a lover, as a seeker of his face, I was in a denominational church and I found out there were particular songs that drew me. At that time in my life I had learned a few chords on the guitar and I would sit with the Lord in the morning and I would begin to sing.
🎶Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Hallelu-Hallelujah.
And we’re still seeking first. Brenda has a testimony.
Brenda Eason. As Mrs. Betty was talking about what God has done through the prayer team and through everyone here as a body, I said, I’ve got to testify. God said, You’ve got to testify.
Last Thursday on Thanksgiving, late at night, they called and my dad was in an ambulance. His oxygen was low and he was not doing well. I was with Shelly and her family and she got me to the hospital. When I got to the room, with all of the gloom and heaviness and death, my dad wouldn’t wake up. He would open his eyes and then go back down. They ran test after test and had no explanation for what was going on.
I’m sitting there and I know I’m not alone; Jesus is with me. But you guys are my family, this prayer team, all of this body. And my first thought was, I need my family to wrap their arms around me. I need somebody. So I posted for prayer, Please pray.
We stayed in the ER from Friday morning at 5 a.m.—with them telling me we’re going to a room and me telling them we’re going to ICU—until we went to ICU. I stayed for my 6:00 visit and needed to go home and get some sleep. Dad was still sleeping and I needed some rest.
I got a text from my sister and she said Richard just called ICU and daddy is awake and he’s drinking. I hadn’t been gone 30 minutes. I went back for my 10:00 visit and he was resting but he was awake. We really had no reason to be in ICU, but they were treating him for aspiration/pneumonia. All the brainwave scans and tests came back normal. There was no stroke.
He laid there a few days and one evening I went in and he was wide awake. He said, Where have you been? I’m exhausted waiting on you. I said, Dad, they just wouldn’t let me come in until this time. They moved him to a room for a few days, and the doctor said there was nothing else they could do. He’s just got these issues and we’re sending him back to Bedford Care. So we went back to Bedford on a Thursday. He was hungry and alert.
On Friday morning I got a call from the doctor there and he had gone into AFib again and not responding much. She said, I need you to come over here. We’ve got to make a decision. We’ve got to do palliative care. Shelly went to visit him and his toes were turning blue and he wasn’t responding much. He said, I’m tired. I’m just tired. But we all continued to pray the number of days God has for him, not what the doctor says.
I would go in and pray for him. I didn’t know what else to do but pray. On Saturday morning I am exhausted and Mr. Floyd said, I’m going to see your dad this morning. You just sleep in. I wake up and there’s a picture on my phone that Mr. Floyd had sent. My dad is sitting in the activity room with his sweater and top hat on listening to a preacher preaching.
So I throw on my clothes. I’ve got to go see this. I get over there and he’s just worshiping. Mr. Floyd is crying. Daddy is crying. Everybody is just having a wonderful time. I’m like, Whoa! My daddy said, I’m a miracle. I said, You bet you are. A cat with nine lives; I don’t know which one. I’m here to tell you, within days my dad was singing and praising the Lord.
God taught me during this time that, Yes it is my heavenly Father’s blood that runs through my veins, but I have genes that God ordained and gave me through my father. And the power, not only the power of God, but the power in what he ordained through my parents. We are born to the right parents. We have a destiny and God is going to see us through it.
I praise God for the hardheaded man that my daddy is. And I praise God that the determination in every fight he gave my daddy, he gave me. (She shares a recording of her daddy singing a hymn.) How many people have been on their knees praying for us? For where we are today?
Lord, I praise you for my dad and my mother and my grandparents and everyone that has set the path for my life, that laid the foundation with you, God, as their leader. Lord, I praise you for your testimony. We need to stand up and give you glory for miracles that you’re doing, Lord. Father, we need to tell people you’re still working miracles. You’re still raising people up out of hospital beds. You’re still preaching and singing through your people, Lord, and I praise you.
I’ve overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. I love you, Lord.
Kimble. Amen. Brenda, we rejoice with you in that report. We are going to continue to stand. We call Mr. Andrews to his full number of days. Even in the condition and the state that he’s in in that home, he is a light to those other people, those patients. We had the opportunity to go there last Sunday and visit and pray with him and minister to others there. It was an awesome thing. But he is a shining light in that place. Our prayers work.
Father, we just rejoice in what you’re doing in our midst. We thank you for your goodness. I smell the fragrance of the Lord in here. I smell his fragrance. Lord, we thank you that you’re here. The Word says that our prayers rise as a sweet-smelling aroma unto you. Father, we receive the fullness of your aroma that comes as our prayers are being answered. We celebrate you and we thank you.
Lord, at this time as we continue to worship, we desire to bring our gifts, our tithes and our offerings, our first fruits to sow in, to deposit, to invest into your kingdom work in this earth. Father, I thank you that you have given us the ability to produce wealth. And Lord, we want to give that part, that portion unto you to see your kingdom advance around the earth.
Lord, as we come today, we come to your Table and celebrate the redemption that Jesus paid for us on that cross, to bring us back into right relationship with you. Your Word tells us that on the night that Jesus was betrayed he met in the upper room with his disciples to have his last supper. After the meal he took bread and broke it and said, This bread is my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do this in remembrance of me.
After the meal he took the cup, blessed it and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever your drink of it, do it in remembrance of me. So today we come to the table and eat of the bread and drink of the cup. As we do that, we’re identifying with the crucifixion, the death, the broken body and shed blood of our Savior.
As we take those elements into our bodies, we’re taking the very spiritual DNA of Jesus into our bodies so that we can be reminded, so that we remember, so that we know we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. That we have been saved, delivered, healed, and set free, and given the ability and the authority to go forth, to declare his praises and display his glory. To be a reflection of Jesus in the earth, that men may be drawn unto Him and receive the same.
Lord, today we thank you for your broken body, for your blood that was shed. We thank you that you went for us and took our place without hesitation, to fulfill your mission, and to redeem us back to the Father. We receive your grace. We thank you for your mercy. I thank you that you have delivered us and set us free, and that we can walk as true sons and daughters of God once again. We praise you and thank you and give you glory, in your name Lord Jesus. Amen.
🎶I love you Lord, for your mercy never fails me. All my days have been held in your hands. All my life you have been faithful. All my life you have been so so good. With every breath that I am able, I will sing of the goodness of God.
Betty. Father, we honor your goodness. I thank you that every time we come together it’s special. You overwhelm us with your goodness and your faithfulness. Praise you Jesus. I thank you for the now word you have this morning, that you have birthed within Danette for this season. Lord, we thank you for your ministry gift and we put a demand on what you’ve stored within her. Father, we thank you that our hearts are prepared to receive this word, in Jesus mighty name. 5540
Danette Riley. Lord, I thank you for your word and this time, for this season that we are in. I thank you that as I open my mouth you are going to fill it. I thank you that heaven is here and that You are here in this place. I thank you for the word and that we’ve come full circle and are able to begin again again. I thank you that we’ve come to this place before, but I decree and declare this time it’s different.
I thank you for ascension, God, that we are going up. I thank you that we are breaking out of the old cycles, that in areas that are necessary we are getting off the hamster wheel, and we are going up.
Lord, I honor you. I am awed and amazed at what you’ve done and what you’re going to do.
The Lord led me to the movie, It’s a Wonderful Life. So repeat after me, It’s a Wonderful Life. Glory. We are all to take notice of where we are. We are indeed in a set time, an opportune time. We have come full circle. We are in the season, the time of miracles, miracles, miracles. Not one thing that’s been said here today was preplanned or talked about by any of us.
In intercession this morning, the Lord said, It will go exactly as I have planned. You can’t make this up. Brenda, when you gave the testimony about your dad being at Bedford, miracles at Bedford, she didn’t know I’m bringing a word about George Bailey and his family. The story from, It’s a Wonderful Life, is in Bedford Falls, and the miraculous was taking place there.
My spirit leapt when you gave the testimony, and the Lord said to look up Bedford; you’re going to teach about Bedford. Bedford comes from the word ‘bede’ and it means a prayer, request, supplication, order, or command. Bedford, the prayer and supplication. Ford means to ford as in a river. Several times in the Bible it speaks of crossing the Jordan, fording that river.
It’s a Wonderful Life. Some people have a ritual to watch this every year. I really haven’t paid much attention to it over the years. I thought I knew what it was about, but when the Lord speaks prophetically about something, I’m all eyes and ears.
When the movie starts, it’s produced by Liberty Films. The Lord has been talking to me about bells, 9s and 19s—these three. As the movie opens, the Liberty Bell is swaying and ringing. I realized this past Friday that the Liberty Bell in that movie rings 9 times. The setting of the movie is 1919. We’re in the year 2019. We’ve stepped into PEY 5780, but we’re in the space in-between.
The Lord wants us to know today, Do not miss the moment we are in. We are in an in-between place, but we haven’t left the year 2019. He wants me to say that again. We have not left the year 2019. He is doing something miraculous in each one of us in the last days of this year. We know the word of the Lord is eternal. When he gives us a prophetic word, his word in the Bible, it’s eternal. Once the word is out there—He framed the world by his words. Those words are out there and they are rolling out there. So we can take hold of them and believe them like Kimble said, or not. We’re going to get what we believe.
Video clip from It’s a Wonderful Life about Clarence the angel being chosen to help George Bailey in answer to all the prayers.
We’re looking at this movie prophetically, not Biblically. Immediately following this clip, Clarence is given the ability to see so that he can help George.
We’ve come full circle. What has been will be again. What has been done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9.
So in this exchange, we have all these names. I’m going to break down the names and what they mean prophetically. We have Clarence, the clockmaker. He has been overlooked for about 200 years. He’s trying to earn his wings. How many of you have felt overlooked for years? Have been in a place of obscurity wondering when your time is going to come? Or when the dreams or your destiny is going to launch out or take off?
Clarence means to be bright, or light, or dawn, shining clear, illustrious. A clockmaker is a horologist. This is just confirmation of where we are, that we are in a set time. Hora, Hebrew 5610, means a time or period, an hour, a definite space of time.
Just like in, It’s a Wonderful Life, Clarence, angel, needed some help, but George was in a bad situation. George is living his life in Bedford Falls. He had dreams as a young boy but it seems like all of his dreams were put on the back burner. He wanted to travel and do different things and it was put off.
This story came from Philip Van Doren Stern and, significantly, he received the entirety of this story in a dream. This movie is one of the most beloved movies of all time and it is named as one of the 100 best loved movies of all time. We are in 2019. The 19th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is KOPH and it means, set time. The number attached to that is 100. Also, Kislev is the 9th month.
It’s the time of birthing and the promises coming forth. It’s miracles, miracles, miracles, and some of us are in the in-between place. Some are in the birth canal of transition. Some are giving birth and you are in a hard, hard place. It’s a dark place but the Lord wants you to be encouraged. He doesn’t want you to lose courage.
Haven’t I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9. Notice the 9 and 19. This is God. He is right on the mark. We are at a time where time and eternity have intersected. When we say we’re in a kairos moment, I’m declaring and decreeing to you, that is exactly where we are. The enemy would try to get you to believe otherwise and sell out.
George means tiller of the soil or farmer. Bailey is an Old English name that has to do with bailiff or city fortification. A bailiff also has to do with the court system and the authority that a bailiff has been given. The Lord is saying to us today as a body and the body of Christ, Do not bail out on me. This is not a time to quit. This is not a time, not to believe God. This is the time to be like Clarence and have the faith of a child.
Some of us are so burdened down with the ‘weight of the wait.’ With the ‘weight of the wait.’ Because it’s been so long.
Henry Potter is the agitator. Henry means, rules his household. Potter makes vessels out of clay. In this movie he serves as the oppressor and the accuser of the brethren. He was rich and he used his money and his power to lord over the people in Bedford Falls. He talked about them and said bad things to them. Henry Potter is the prophetic picture of our enemy.
In the movie there was a run on the bank. The Lord is saying to us, You can bank on my word because the angels are running on my word. George Bailey needed divine assistance. At the very beginning of this movie the prayers of the saints were going up. Intercession. How important are our prayers? This is just a picture of it. While they were praying these prayers, George was on a bridge, snow coming down. He was at the end of his rope. He was dismayed and discouraged. All his problems weighed on him. He was definitely in a place of hope deferred makes the heart sick.
Are you in a heartsick place? If you are in a heartsick place, the Lord is here today to bring you up and out and he wants to take you in. It’s not easy for me to stand here and tell you this. I’ve been through a lot in my life, but the year 2017, it was the ‘weight of the wait.’ I had experienced death, the loss of a child, loss of my parents, lots of loss. The Lord has come through, but it was the ‘weight of the wait.’
The enemy will come in and he will try to get you just like Potter did: Come over to my bank. Come over to my way. I’ll do $.50 on the dollar here. The enemy will come in when you are tired and try to get you to move off of what God said, just like what happened in the Garden. But God is not a liar. He is not lying. What he has said to you he is going to do. But it’s in the fullness of time.
Nita talked about character this morning. The Lord said, I am not interested in your comfort as much as I am interested in your character. Because he is building character in us. The greater the call, the greater the fall. The greater the triumph will mean the greater the trials that you face. If you’ve had a life of all hell breaking loose, one thing right after another, I’ve got good news for you. We are in the head-over-heels nose-bleeding time of God doing for us.
God allows things to happen. Did he do these things? No. Did he do all that to George? No, he didn’t do it to George. George got the greatest gift because he sent him some angelic assistance. But George was so preoccupied with himself—poor me, poor this, poor that. The angel is trying to help him and he’s just like, I wish I’d never been born. You know—the pity party. God came to one pity party and told me, I am showing up to tell you that I do not come to pity parties. Arise. That was the word of the Lord to me.
George was pitiful. What he deemed as the end of the world and what he wanted to die over, the Lord was working behind the scenes on his behalf. So Clarence is like, okay, we’re going to give you your wish. It’s going to be as if you were never born. So what happened to George Bailey? He got a chance to really go full circle, because he went all the way back. In one of the first clips it was 1919. George and his brother are skating down the ice and his little brother Harry who is 9 years old falls in the ice—and George saves his life. There were several things throughout the movie that were drastically changed because George got to see what life was like in Bedford Falls without him.
Remember Uncle Billy. He lost $8000 and George went to the bridge to take his life. Last night I saw this, 80 is PEY, 8000, Wow! We’ve got this $8000, this Payday situation here, and God is working all things for George’s good.
Look back into the cloud. In the clouds, remember when the stars were talking, one was Joseph. I’m not sure if it’s a Joseph season, but it’s been all about Joseph. It has been the promise, then we’re thrown in the pit, then we went into Potiphar’s house, now to prison, and what happens after prison? The Palace. I’m going into the palace. I’m in the palace. Say, I’m in the palace.
James Stewart, the actor playing George—Stewart means steward. Bailiff. I’m laughing. I don’t know if you have any real close friends. But there have been some times in my life when I needed bail money. I don’t know about y’all. I have a couple of friends that I’ve been able to call and say, I might just need some bail money. That’s a close friend. (laughter)
The Lord is here to bail us out. I cannot tell you the situations I’ve been in in my life, but the enemy is trying to convince some of you, even today, Well you got yourself into this. There have been many many times the Lord would come to me, not like a man or a human who would say, I told you so. He would come and say, I did not get you in this mess, Danette, but I’m going to get you out. He showed me and continues to show me what a good father is.
He has gotten me out of everything I’ve gotten myself into, but there are consequences when we make decisions. We’re in the time to get off the hamster wheel. Now is the time. Press the red button. There are some people that you just need to hang up on. There are some people you need to cut the cord with. Some people are sucking the life out of you. They are killing you emotionally and spiritually. Learn how to press the red button. I don’t mean to be cruel or mean to people. There are people who have been sent to suck you dry.
This is for somebody. The best help we can give to some people is no help at all. That is a hard thing to do, a hard thing to walk out, especially if it’s in your family. I’m not telling you anything I’ve not done myself. You can do anything the Lord requires of you to do because he will empower you to do it. We are not other people’s Holy Spirit and he does not want us to enable other people. He wants them to be able to walk and stand on their own two feet.
KOPH, the 19th letter is used for the number 100, the ‘set time’ of Abraham when Isaac was born. Genesis 17:21. The term ‘set time’ used in this verse is the same Hebrew word used for Feast. It corresponds to the 19th time the word ‘mystery’ occurs in the New Testament which is in Revelation 1. KOPH represents growth cycles and is also tied to Psalm 110.
The Lord says to my Lord, Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet. This is where we are. Betty said we’re entering the decade of kings. And we are. 1919 was the first Triple Crown. Why the significance of the horses. We are prophets, priests, and kings. It is now that we step into this kingly anointing. It’s now.
:2 The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion saying, Rule in the midst of your enemies. Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning’s womb.
:4 The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
:5 The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
We know we are standing in the month of Kislev, the tribe of Benjamin. His mother in childbirth wanted to name him out of her pain. You cannot step into your promise if you are focused and looking through the lens of your pain. You cannot do that. We must relinquish the right to be offended. Life is not fair.
Jesus is our friend. But he is also OUR King. He is our King, so when he says, Love your enemies. Do good to them. There are things we must do if we want to be a friend of God. But we are also his subjects. What level of anointing do you want to walk in? He said, I’m not looking for perfection. I’m looking for humility. The Lord can do a lot of things with someone who is humble, someone who will bow themselves down.
Benjamin was a great archer with a bow. The Lord wants us to bow down before Him. This month of Kislev goes back to Genesis 9. We stepped out of the month of the flood and now we are in the month of the rainbow. Genesis 9 is all about covenant. God made covenant with us.
When I first saw the title, It’s a Wonderful Life, he led me to Isaiah 9.
Isaiah 9:1-7. Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed, as when at first he lightly esteemed the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward more heavily oppressed her, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee of the Gentiles.
:2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.
I decree and declare all this morning, all day, a light has dawned, a light is shining. He is the light of the world. His light has shined upon us. He is saying, Arise and Shine. Arise and Shine for your glory has come.
:3 You have multiplied the nation and increased its joy; they rejoice before you according to the joy of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
There is joy in the harvest. We are about to harvest.
:4 For you have broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian. For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle, and garments rolled in blood, will be used for burning and fuel for fire.
:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
That word Wonderful comes from the word ‘pele,’ a PEY word. It means wonder. It’s Latin for object of wonder, to wonder, and wonderful, full of wonder.
We must process our pain correctly to enter in. We are in a time of wonder-ing and awe of God’s goodness. He’s saying to us that it’s time to stop wandering. He doesn’t want us wandering around. Birthright and destiny are hanging in the balance. The Lord has said on many occasions, Be careful how you choose.
Wonderful Counselor. Counselor, the Paraclete. He’s our Counselor. Nothing I’ve said is new. This has been God’s word in the house. It’s been rolling and going in a circle and it’s gaining momentum. It’s our moment. The Lord says it’s our moment. Don’t miss your moment. I thank you, Lord, that we will not miss the time of our visitation.
Zechariah 9. As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold you prisoners of hope. Even today, I declare that I will restore double to you, for I have bent Judah, my bow; fitted my bow with Ephraim, (which is double fruit), and raised up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece. And made you like the sword of a mighty man.
We are like the sword of a mighty man. You can take this to the bank. He said, I will restore double. When I heard the Bedford from Brenda, and Bedford from the movie, He is restoring double. Double for your trouble. Do you believe it? I believe it.
Betty talked about Amos 9:11. I’m not just saying this because Betty says Zechariah 9 and Amos 9. I’m saying this because it’s the Word of the Lord and he does not want us to be desensitized to His Word. When we hear words over and over we do this, Well I know what that means. Or the Lord will say, You need to look that up again. When he instructs us to do something, don’t just be hearers of the word; be doers of it.
If I had not listened to Him when he told me to look up Bedford, we would have missed out on something awesome. He wants us to realize his best. We are in the season where the reaper is overtaking the sower. Head-over-heels.
This is further confirmation in words the Lord gave me. Nobody knew what was in this notebook.
September 11, 2018, 9/11, I was at Mississippi Combine in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Betty was ministering with Anna and the Lord gave me this word. This is not just for me. This is for the body and all who will hold onto it. And when the Lord gives a prophetic word to Michelle, if I’m standing close enough to her and it’s an awesome word, I’m going to steal the best and leave the rest. That’s what they told us in school. Steal the best and leave the rest. Because in that prophetic word, what you’ll do for one, you’ll do for another. And I’m crazy enough to believe Him.
He said, I am indeed bringing you into a good land. A land flowing with milk and honey. A marvelous place. A place of marvels. You will indeed marvel at the goodness of your God. You will ask yourself, How can this be? How has this happened? How could this be in my land that has been afflicted and tossed about?
Yes, in your affliction, pain, and devastation areas I make all things new. I make all things new. In you, I make all things new. Behold the hand of God and my goodness. I will overtake you with my goodness in this hour. I am staying the hand of the enemy with my righteous right hand, says the Lord. Watch and see. Watch and see.
I then saw a person with their right hand over their face looking at the horizon.
And then I looked up marvel. It means to be in consternation, amazed, astonished, wonder, to be astounded, be stunned, be amazed, be dumbfounded. I believe, Brenda, you were dumbfounded when you got the text. He is dumbfounding us.
March 17, 2017. This was a terrible time. But I still held onto the word. That’s what we have to do—hold onto Him and hold onto the word.
I saw a popcorn popper with hot air. I saw a fisher price toy that was used to roll on the floor with balls inside that would make a popping sound, like when I was a child. I saw ping pong balls in a lottery basket. Air was blowing the balls with numbers on them. The Lord said, I’m not like the lottery. There is more than one winner.
I began to see and hear the prophetic words, promises spoken into my life. They were rolling around like the pictures of the items that I saw. And he said, Open your books. Pick one. Pick them all. This is a season of my suddenlies. Suddenlies in your seedbed, says the Lord.
I am declaring and decreeing this over you.
Sudden. Sudden manifestations of the miraculous. He said, I means what I say and I say what I means. ‘Means’ means he’s got the $ stuff to do it with. Open your books. My books are open. Come, let us reason together, says the Lord. There will be no rhyme or reason for these occurrences, random acts of my kindness and my love for you. Random acts, but it is miraculous none the less.
It’s raining. It’s raining. It’s raining miracles. It’s raining miracles because I reign. I am God. I am Jehovah. Beside me there is no other. I make known the end from the beginning. I do all that I please. You are indeed in a kairos moment. A moment where heaven and time collide. Collisions Collisions. No revisions. No revisions. When I speak who can change it?
Who, I say, can change my words? I am a good God. I am a now God. I’m your All in All. I am your great reward. Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what I have planned for those who love me. Plans to prosper you. Plans for your future. Plans of hope, not calamity.
Stand at the ancient path and ask where the good way is. Walk ye in it. Stand. See. Ask. Walk. My word does not return void. It accomplishes the purpose for which I sent it. And he said, I send it.
These prophetic words that he’s given me over the years were at various times. They’re wrinkled because you don’t just use them for a specific day or week. All of these are alive. Your prophetic words are alive.
This was May 30, 1994. I called Trena Overland. I was in a bad place. All hell was breaking loose. I loved the Lord. He loved me. But anything that could possibly go wrong went wrong. At the time, my first husband and I were divorcing. We have three children. I was in the middle of an affair. Broken. It was a mess. I called Trena, because the Lord always has the somebodies, the someones, the Bettys, the Wandas, the others that will help lift you up.
So I called Trena and she hit the floor. She said, I’m going to have to get some new kneepads, because she prayed and prayed with not much result there for a while. But she believed the word of the Lord. She asked the Lord to give me a now word. I’m sitting at a desk at Sunbeam Oster in Bay Springs, Mississippi, and the Lord said, Pick up a pen and write. These are typed but I have the handwritten words that he gives me. Just as fast as I can write, the words flow. This is for you.
He said, The battle is mine. It is not yours.
Your eyes must not wander to different shores.
I will sustain you and keep you in all that you do.
I am God and I cannot lie. My word is forever and true.
Keep your eyes on me and not on all that’s wrong.
Don’t give up. For you’ll see my salvation before too long.
I am always on time. And never too late.
My child, I am teaching you while you wait.
I did not bring you out alone. But I am always holding your hand.
I am Jehovah and I’m ever leading you into that new land.
I will complete the work and make you the creation I predestined you to be.
Stop trying to do it yourself and know that the battle belongs to me.
You will stumble but you will not fall.
For I am the Lord your God, Creator and Surveyor of all.
I have called you out and set you apart.
For I know the desires of your heart.
Don’t look to others for they cannot see
I am the one doing the work. The battle belongs to me.
I know you get weary and venture off track.
I never get tired and I’m ever gently leading you back.
It doesn’t matter what others believe or what they might see.
I am the Alpha and the Omega. The battle belongs to me.
This came in about five minutes, as fast as I could write it. And I’ve held onto it, because the battle does belong to Him. He wants us to relinquish control and take our hands off the reins.
Last night I had a dream. I was, Lord, where do you want to go with all of this? I had a vivid dream about a woman who was writing a bestseller book. I happened to be close to her in a restaurant and she was writing a book. She said, It’s a bestseller. It’s on Isaiah 55. Isaiah 55? I said, I don’t mean to overhear your conversation, but the Lord has been telling us to eat the book of Isaiah.
When you go to Isaiah 55, this is God’s invitation to us, not just the wonderful, the miraculous, but the abundant life, and this is how we get it.
Isaiah 55:1-13. Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good. And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you—the sure mercies of David.
:4 Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, a leader and commander for the people. Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, and nations who do not know you shall run to you, because of the Lord your God, and the Holy One of Israel; for he has glorified you.
:6 Seek the Lord while he may be found. Call upon him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth. It shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace. The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the briar shall come up the myrtle tree. And it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.
Lord, we just thank you for your word today. I thank you for this house and all who are aligned and connected with us. I thank you that your word does not return void. It accomplishes the purpose for which you sent it. And I thank you that we have divine intervention, that we have help from your sanctuary. I thank you, Lord, that you are wonderful and that you are our counselor. You are our peace. You are all things to us. I thank you this word falls on good ground. We just honor you and give you all the praise and glory in Jesus name. Amen.
Betty. We receive the word, It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s what we always say, You can’t make it up. There were so many things she shared, even in the third prophecy, that were scriptures and declarations that we made from the beginning today. And I agree with the word, that what we are carrying to birth, we are giving birth to in this hour, in this season, in this fullness of time.
And even back to the season of dreams, she had a dream last night. So we come into agreement with the dreams and the visions that God has personally spoken over your lives and corporately of what he is doing in the body of Christ. Praise God.
