Judah Goes First.
This sounds hard, but as a leader in the house, when I call you to the front, it dishonors the house and it dishonors the Lord when you go to your seat. We’re the core and if we’re going to be in the right position, and if we’re going to be yielded unto the Lord in this house, then we need to listen to each other. We need to listen to those in authority. We need to move if the Lord says we’re gathering everyone up to the front.
We don’t do this because we think it’s a good idea. We do this because this is the instruction He gave to the leaders in this house. It’s really a great thing. Our first act as a corporate body. We’re gathering together as one and presenting ourselves unto the Lord.
Matthew 24:32. This is Jesus speaking. Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: as soon as its twigs become tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Jesus is talking about his return. But I was reading that this week and I was thinking about the promises of God, and his written Word, his Logos. I was also thinking about Rhema words, the words he’s given us individually, words he’s given us corporately. And the word of God is true, right? Nothing can thwart his plan and purpose. Nothing can change his mind. Whenever he says it, it is.
This week I was thinking about situations in my life, different things I know the Lord has said, things I know the written Word has said, and how often the enemy tries to comes at us with doubt and unbelief. And there’s this wavering back and forth of, I’m holding to the Word of God, but then at the same time, Is it going to happen? Am I going to be let down? Is this going to hurt me? Am I getting my hopes up for no reason? Am I just living somewhere else? Am I not embracing reality?
Because no one wants to believe a lie. No one wants to hope for something that’s never going to happen. As I was pondering all of this this week, what kept coming back to me is that heaven and earth will pass away, but his Word will remain forever. The words, the promises of God, the written, the Logos, the rhema, all of it is forever.
So anything the Lord has spoken to you, whether it’s him repeating his written Word back to you, or it’s a promise that he’s given you, or it’s a prophetic word you’ve received, whatever it is, that word is ringing out forever. It has no end. It has no beginning. It just goes on and on and on.
Whenever I began seeing that, it’s like his word was running ahead of us and also coming behind us. If we’ll just stay in line. This last month was all about staying in alignment. If we’ll just come up under our Head who is Jesus, we’re in line with him, and let him drop him plumb line in us, his word is not going to miss us. His promise is not going to miss us. Because whenever we’re in alignment, that word is going before us and it’s coming up behind us. And there’s no missing it.
We’ve talking about this. To sin is to miss the mark. Whenever we’re in alignment, we’re not stepping off sides or to the right or left. We’re not wavering. We’re on the mark every time. If we are in him and he is in us, then there’s no getting out of his word. There’s no getting out of his promise. I hope that encourages you.
We are in a new season, a new time, and one thing that’s been resonating in me is, Why let the past, because if it’s not happened in the past you’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting. Why let the past affect what you think the future outcome is going to be?
Because if you’re really hoping for something, if you’re really standing on the Word of God, and maybe you’ve received a word or promise, and it was 2 years ago, 5 years ago, 15 years ago, 50 years ago, however long it’s been, if you’re holding onto that word half-heartedly, but in the back of your mind you’re thinking, Well, it’s not going to happen. It didn’t happen last time. It’s almost here. It feels like it’s here. I want it to happen, but I don’t think it will. I don’t want to get my hopes up. Has anybody ever felt that way?
It’s time to look in the mirror. It’s time to take a clear look. If you believe God’s Word to be true, and believe his promise to be true, embrace it. I would say to some of us, we need to re-embrace the words that the Lord has given us, to go back and meditate on those words. First of all, I would say, if there is any type of instruction in the promises that he’s given you, if there’s anything he’s told you to do in regard to those things and you haven’t done it, first of all I would say, Repent; me first. And then make a change. Step out into the promise. Step out into what he said. Let’s take him at his word. Let’s begin to look at things in a new way.
The Lord is looking for something to work with. He’s saying, Will you give me something to work with? All you have to do is be willing. Even if we only have faith the size of a mustard seed, that’s enough. I pray this morning that that faith in us will spark and begin to light a fire that burns brighter and deeper and larger than ever before. I pray that our faith will be so strengthened this morning that there will be no more wavering in ourselves.
Isaiah 12:1. In that day you will say, I will praise you, Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. In that day you will say: Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.
This might sound cliche and I know we’ve heard it, but we have to praise before the breakthrough. We have to be thankful. We have to be in joy before the promise comes, before the miracle comes. And really get to that point where it doesn’t matter what happens, I’m going to praise you, Lord. It doesn’t matter what things look like. I’m going to have joy.
It doesn’t matter what things look like, I’m going to be in the right spirit. I’m going to be having the right attitude. That’s the biggest sacrifice. If you want to know what a sacrifice of praise is, it’s to remain in joy, to remain in gladness, to remain in thanksgiving to the Lord, despite everything else. I’m saying all of that this morning to encourage you.
This morning, as we have gathered, we’re going to lift up a song of praise to the Lord. We are going to ask the Lord to be enthroned upon our praises today. Jesus is the rightful King and I’m asking him to move in this place like we have not seen before. As we were praying this morning, I was asking the Lord to go beyond our expectations. We say it a lot, to expect more, or for him to go beyond.
I thank him that he goes even beyond that, more than we can imagine, more than we ask for. This is all real. We don’t come in here just to say nice words, or gather up to make ourselves feel better. But the Lord of all heaven and all the earth comes in this place and comes to meet with this body corporately, and that’s something very special. So often in church he’s there, but we pass him by. He doesn’t ever pass us by. I pray an awareness of him will be so in us this morning that we engage in new ways.
Father, we invite you in this place this morning. Jesus, I thank you that you’re the reigning King of this house, the reigning King of this city. You are the reigning King of all heaven and all the earth. Be enthroned in this place this morning. Be enthroned on our praise. Lord, I thank you that faith is becoming substance this morning. Let faith become substance in us.
Father, I thank you that we are planted firmly in you, that we are rooted and grounded on you love. Let your truth arise this morning, Jesus. I thank you that you are tearing down old mindsets. That you are tearing down unbelief. That you are tearing down weariness. That you are tearing down any of these strongholds, any of the holding places of the enemy in our mind, will and emotions.
Lord, I thank you that this is a new day. That we step into it and we raise our eyes. We raise our gaze. We raise our hope this morning. Lord, we embrace your grace in this hour. We embrace your grace to change. We embrace your grace to bring change in this season, to bring change in us individually, in us corporately, in our families, in every aspect of our lives.
I thank you that the sun is rising. I thank you that the morning season is over. I thank you have we’ve come into a new day, that your sun/Son is shining and that your joy is rising in your people. Lord, I thank you for new clothing. I thank you that you are clothing us afresh and anew, that you are removing the grave clothes.
Father, thank you that we are coming out of the grave this morning. Holy Spirit, come and move in this place. Breathe afresh on us. Breathe your fresh breath, your fresh life in us. Lord, I thank you that just as we said last week, that your plumb line is dropping in us and that it’s taking root.
Lord, I thank you that we are like those trees planted by your living water. Let your living water flow this morning. Revive us, Lord. Revive your people. Any place that we feel weary, Lord, I thank you that you are giving us new life. That you are giving us a fresh breath. Have your way this morning in Jesus name.Amen. Let’s step into worship.
🎶We acknowledge you in this house, oh God. We’ve seen your faithfulness. Your mercy without end. A God who sacrificed. Be enthroned upon the praises of a thousand generations. You are worthy, Lord of all. Unto you the slain and risen King we lift our voices with heaven singing worthy, Lord of all. Jesus be glorified. Highest praises, Lord of all.
Nita Maselle. I see steps in the spirit realm and they’re just floating. They’re not formed yet in the earth, but they are there in the spirit. And when he gives you word and promises and rhema, it is there. It is real. And you need to stand on it as it is being formed in the earth.
I was also seeing that he is already working on your next. This one hasn’t even formed in the earth yet, and he gave it to you to stand on. And He’s working on the next step. It’s a higher step. It’s like a staircase going forward. And when you waver on the one he gave you, how are you going to get to the next one he’s already working on? You can’t do that.
Look at the Patriarchs. In Hebrews 12 it said that some of these received their promises, and they considered it done when they had not even seen it formed in the earth. And they went to heaven, and they received it. It was done.
It’s as good as done. It’s real. The spiritual is more real than the natural. That’s what the Bible says. So let me tell you. You stand on the rhema. You stand on the word that he’s given you. Because he’s already working on the next step, and you don’t want to mess that up.
I’ll be honest with you. Sometimes the steps don’t look reasonable to us. Sometimes we think, Lord, why did you bring me into this when it wasn’t going to work out? He had a purpose. He had a purpose to bring you into steps that never worked out the way you thought it would work out. There was purpose in it. Trust me.
There was something that needed to be formed in you or something that needed to be formed in other people around you. And even if they weren’t ready to go there yet, it was to bring them into an exposure, a better place of exposure, so that whenever everything does come together right, and it is put down completely in the natural, you can move in. And it was also to give opportunity. So people may not go all the way that he will. Give them opportunity.
He’s given you the rhema word for his plan and his purpose, whether you ever go through it or not. He will give you that opportunity. And it affects other people. It affects the people around you. So it’s not just you and your decision. Well, am I going to stand on this rhema God gave me? Am I going to believe for this? Am I going to stay in faith? In faith?
It’s easy to believe for what you have. Faith is when you’re standing for what you haven’t seen formed yet, but you know God said it. It affects people around you.
Father, I just thank you for the rhema word. Lord, we celebrate every rhema word, every scriptural revelation that you have given us, and we choose to follow you in the steps of progression that you’re bringing us through.
Lord God, I just ask that you strengthen us to not waver on the steps. Strengthen us to not waver even though the reactions of men, even when you’re standing in faith, and the reactions of men are negative. Those steps are not based on circumstances. Those steps are not based on circumstances in the earth. It’s not based on what it looks like. It’s not based on whether or not you ever saw it happen. It’s not based on whether or not you think it can ever happen because it’s going to be beyond what you can think or imagine. You can’t put it together.
Lord, I thank you for strengthening our faith in your Word and your promise and your proclamations. Lord, I come against doubt. I come against doubt and unbelief in this body, in this state even, in the name of Jesus. Lord, I thank you for an unwavering body, an unwavering body that will go forth into what you have planned.
And Father, I thank you that any opposition, any opposition, is just a promotion. It’s just a promotion into what was impossible. It’s just a promotion into breakthrough. It’s just a promotion into the next.
Father, I thank you that we stand in a good attitude against every opposition of man and the enemy so that you can promote, because you agree with your word. And Lord, we stand on your word. You’re going to promote it. You’re going to promote us in it. You’re going to bring it to pass and you’re going to have all the glory, all the glory. Thank you Father.
🎶Let faith rise up. Oh heart, believe. Let faith rise up in me. I will stand on your word. I will let your faith arise in me. Remove all doubt and unbelief, any disappointments, Lord. We give it to you. We thank you for clean slate. You’re never gonna let me down. You are good, good, ohoh. Get up. Stand up. Stand up on the Word.
Dottie Duckworth. On the way here this morning, I asked the Lord, What are you going to do today? What I heard is from Psalm 45:13. The phrase I heard was, All glorious is she in the chambers. Then I saw him take his robe and cover us with his robe.
In worship before Nita got up I saw the heavens pulled back, and it was as if that all was there. And again I saw his robe. This time he’s on the white horse and the horse is standing up, and he’s laughing. He’s singing and he’s laughing over us.
Then he does the robe again and it turns from white to rainbow colors, brilliant colors. Then I see a ladder and he says, Come up here. I go up the ladder and I get on the horse and we’re just having a time. He’s laughing.
Father, I thank you that you are a laughing, singing God. I thank you for your presence. Lord, we are so honored that you allow us to see in the heavens, that we can see what you’re doing. We thank you for every promise, promises that we’ve forgotten, promises that we don’t even know about. But we stand on your word and your promises and we thank you Lord for loving us, and showing us how to have fun in Jesus name.
Danette Riley. As we were worshiping the Lord said, Welcome to Glory Land. Just as I hid Moses in the cleft of the rock as my goodness passed by, I AM is here. My presence is not fleeting. My presence is assembling a fleet of worshipers.
And then war ships. I’m gathering my fleet. Those that sit at my feet and hear and act on my word.
The wheel is real. This Wheelhouse is real. Listen and participate with the heavenly realm. The heavenly realm is more real that anything you know or have experienced on the earth.
As you worship, the curtain is coming down on the enemy. And the curtain of my divine plans are being revealed into the earth.
Time is fleeting. Walk circumspectly. Redeem the time. My fleet will not retreat. Welcome to the heavenly realm.
Anchors away. I am the anchor in your souls. I am the stability of your times. Above the wisdom, salvation, and knowledge, anchor yourself in me.
Father, we just declare and decree that we are in Glory Land this morning. We thank you that Miracle City Global is your Wheelhouse. Lord, it’s your wheel/will. And Lord, you’re the Apostle and High Priest of this house, and we say, Thank you that your glory is in this place. We welcome heaven in this place and we thank you for what you are doing, and what you are going to do, in Jesus name.
Nancy Pitts. This morning as Dottie was talking about the horse, what I saw was that sometimes we think the war is hard, that the battle is hard. Our Jesus has won the war. He’s not going in defeated. He’s going in as, I’ve already done this. And it’s white. It’s clear. He has cleansed us. But it’s covenant.
When she said rainbow, he said covenant. It’s my covenant promise to you. So Lord, we thank you for your covenant promises. We thank you for it.
🎶Open my eyes. Search me inside. I can’t live without your presence.
Anna Love. Lord, we thank you for this morning. We thank you for what you’re doing in this place and in our midst. We give glory and honor to your name, Jesus. I thank you that you are enthroned on our praise.
Lord, I thank you that our eyes are open and that you are searching us out. That you are searching out our most inner places, that you are removing any wavering, that you are removing any doubt, fear, unbelief, disbelief, hope deferred, anything, Lord, any dark place.
Father, I thank you that you are covering us in your robe, that you are re-mantling us this morning. As Dottie saw your robe go over us, I thank you that you are re-mantling us. And I thank you that any places in our lives that need to be redeemed that you, our Kinsman Redeemer, are covering us. That you are covering us with your authority. That you are covering us with your name. That you are covering us in your blood and in who you are.
Lord, open our eyes. Take off any lenses that are not of you. Let us see clearly. Let us see your promise. Lord, let faith rise up in us this morning. Let faith to move mountains rise up in us this morning. I thank you that you’re doing something new, that you’re doing something different in us. That even in the chemical makeup of our minds, you are changing things, you are rearranging things, you are realigning us with heaven, and you are giving us the mind of Christ.
No more wavering, but keep us rooted and grounded. Keep us firmly planted on you Jesus, on your truth, in Jesus name. Amen.
Brad Roney. We have stepped into the month of Tammuz, the fourth month of the Hebraic calendar.
Father, as we come together, open our ears to hear what you are saying. But also Lord, give us clarity of sight to see. Remove the distractions from our eyes so our focus is totally on you. Remove the veil over our eyes, the scales where we might be blinded to you and what you’re doing. Give us a heart of worship. Open the eyes of our heart that we might see you. And give us a heart of worship, not unto ourselves or to anything in this world, but unto you. And remove the idols that we might have established in our lives and around us. We’re worshiping you in spirit and in truth in Jesus name. Amen.
We stepped into Tammuz the first of the week and we are celebrating First Fruits. This is a day to bring in the first fruits of not only our labor, but also of ourselves. First fruits of worship. First fruits of praise today. So keep that in mind as we step into this first fruits Sunday. Not only are we giving of our titles, offerings and first fruits, we are giving of ourselves to him who is worthy of all honor, and worthy of all that we have.
This is the month to guard your heart and your eyes.
Deuteronomy 11:26. See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse—the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.
Deuteronomy 30:15-19. See, I set before you life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
It’s generational. It’s not just you. It’s your children and your children’s children. So what you choose to do today not only affects you, but it affects your generations to come.
And that you love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Guard your heart and your eyes.
Have you ever heard the term, You are what you eat? If you eat donuts, I’ve heard you’ll turn into a donut. If you eat carrots, you’ll turn into a carrot. It’s the same thing with what you look at. How you use your eyes. Your eyes are a gate, a gate inside of you. It allows things in. What are you allowing in to affect your heart, your mind, your will and your emotions, your soul?
Guard your heart and your eyes. Be careful what you let in. Be careful what you open your gates to. That’s why cities have gates and laws, for protection. They don’t just let anybody in. That’s why they have guards standing by the gate. Basically to filter who comes in and goes out. So allow the Lord to guide you on what you allow in, Holy Spirit to check you. Listen to the Holy Spirit and he will guide you into what he wants you to have inside of you, to allow in.
This is also the filmstrip month. Watch your progress and adjust. This is the month to worship. I was reminded last night and this morning of two songs. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. Open the eyes of my heart. I want to see you. To see you high and lifted up. Shining in the light of your glory. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord.
When the music fades, all is stripped away, and I simply come, longing just to bring something that is of worth that will bless your heart. I will bring you more than a song, for a song in itself is not what you have required. You search much deeper within, to the way things appear. You’re looking into my heart. I’m coming back to the heart of worship. And it’s all about you. It’s all about you, Jesus. I’m sorry Lord for the thing I made it. When it’s all about you. It’s all about you, Jesus.
Come this month with a heart of worship. What are you worshipping. What are you coming into? Worshipping. Are you worshipping yourself? Are you worshipping the idols that you might have set up as the children of Israel did, waiting impatiently for Moses to come down? They had Aaron build an idol, a golden calf; and they decided, This is our god. This Moses has disappeared and we don’t know where he is.
They grew impatient and built their own god. And they felt the destruction for it. So what are you worshipping? What are you building up? What are you setting before you? Are you giving your worship time to that? Are you worshipping the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords?
This is a time for vision. See what you see and look again. This is the filmstrip month. As a child and preteen before digital cameras, we had 35mm cameras that had a roll of film you put in the camera. When you get the film developed they give you not only the pictures, but they give you the filmstrip itself, the negatives. So you can look back and not only have the pictures, but the actual film itself.
So the Lord is saying, Take that filmstrip of your life. Watch your progress and adjust from that. See what you see and look again.
This is a month for covenant alignment. Notice all your handshakes this month. The body part for this month is the right hand and the right index finger. The right hand, watch your agreements and your covenants. What are you agreeing to? What are you shaking hands with? We’re coming out of the businessman’s month. Making business decisions, agreements. Are you coming into agreement and covenants with the Lord? Or are you building a calf?
The right index finger is for pointing and directing your vision, directing your sight. I’m looking and pointing over there in that direction. I’m directing my vision over there. So it allows you to follow my finger to see what I’m looking at.
This month’s constellation is Cancer, the Crab. I saw what Michelle shared on Fb, the Tammuz post Miracle City did. There was a comment by a person who was connecting the constellation to astrology. That is a highjack of the enemy. The constellations, the stars, the moon, the sun, are all created for God’s glory. Satan is trying to pervert the signs in the sky. Satan has enticed man to use the heavens for an ungodly purpose.
Astrology is man’s attempt to discern the future from the stars and gain revelation without having to seek God or hear his voice. It’s a Greek mindset. It is eliminating God out of the picture, and trying to get revelation unto themselves, a knowledge of humanity and mankind which is only a blip on the screen compared to God’s wisdom and his revelations that he wants to give us.
Astrology is also a form of divination which is sin, which is a drastic contrast to the Lord’s vision of setting the stars and the moon and the sun into motion. Dabbling in horoscopes will open a door to demonic oppression in your life. I’m sure, maybe, one time in each of our lives we might have glanced at the horoscope in the TV Guide or the newspaper. Probably not thinking much about it.
As I said before. You’re using the gates of your eyes to look and read what’s on the paper, and you’re possibly allowing an opening for the enemy to come in, for oppression in your life. The sun, moon, and stars were established by God and set into place for his glory. You can read Psalm 8, Job 9:8-10, and Psalm 19:1. It is a Biblical description of the Lord setting in motion and creating the stars for his glory.
Scriptures validate there is nothing evil about the sun, the moon, or the constellations. They are God’s creation just as we are. When he created us in his image, he was well-pleased. The heavens were established by God as a gift to provide us with revelation in who he is. It reminds us of the times God has established for us to seek him.
Genesis 1:14. And God said, Let there be lights in the vault of the sky that separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, days and years. And let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth. And it was so. God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth…
I look at the moon, stars, and the sun as conduits of his glory. And of his light shining on us.
God set them in the vault of the sky to give his light on the earth, to govern the day and the night and separate the light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
I’ll repeat that. And God saw that it was good. This is the enemy’s way of trying to pervert the goodness of God.
Example: The wise men saw a bright star in the east which was a signal from God that the Messiah had come. I’m no expert in physics, but I’m wondering from the time sin entered the world and God prophesied that the seed of woman and man would soon crush satan under his feet, if then he set into motion that star. I don’t know how long the light travels, but I’m wondering if he set that star right then, and it took those thousands of years for that light to come into visibility for those wise men to see. I don’t know. I’m just guessing.
In Matthew 24:30 and Acts 2:19, in the last day there will be signs in the sky. Let us notice those signs in the sky. The stars are there to mark our seasons and more particularly to remind us of appointed times to meet with him. You can guesstimate what time it is during the day by the position of the sun in the sky. So the sun is giving us the time. The sun also changes degrees in position east to west during the year. It’s God’s clock in the sky.
The sun, moon, and stars are positioned by God for his purpose. And the Jews use this as a giant clock. The days are marked by the cycle of the sun. And the time of day is marked by position of the sun in the sky. Twelve times a year God arranged for the moon to go through a complete cycle which divided our year into twelve months.
The Jews would watch for the new moon to appear so they could declare, The new month has begun. So the position of the moon tells the Jews and us now that the new month is coming or is here. The Lord designed all of this. There is no way the sun and moon are positioned by happenstance. They’re for a reason and a purpose.
The color for this month is red: atonement, the blood, life, the love of God.
The stone is carnelian. Exodus and Ezekiel describe carnelian as present in the breastplate of the priest.
Tammuz is the fourth month of the Hebraic calendar. The number 4 is a picture of a door. New month, new season. The first of the three summer seasons. We went from the three spring seasons to the fourth month, walking through a door into a new season of summer. The three summer seasons or months are Tammuz, Av, and Elul. These are the three tribes of the camps of Reuben, Simeon and Gad. They are situated to the south of the tabernacle.
This is the month Israel sinned and made the golden calf. A Christian author said the gold they used to craft the golden calf, their idol, was taken from the plunder or the provision from Egypt. So they took from the previous month of being given provision, which we just stepped out of; they took the provision meant for the tabernacle, and used it to craft a golden idol to substitute the Lord God who just delivered them from Egypt.
So they took what was meant for God’s glory and his worship, and (symbolized) his goodness to them, and perverted it. Idols are temporary fixes. They come and they go. But the Lord is eternal. He never ends. Are we going to choose something that’s temporary? Something we can just stick on a shelf? Or are we going to choose the Lord God who has always been and always will be, the Creator of us, the Creator of this world? This day, Choose.
This led to the breaking of the first set of tablets given to Moses by God. A set of tablets the Lord used his own finger, stretched down from heaven, to write the revelation. Exodus 32:1-35 is the account of Moses going up Mt. Sinai.
When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they became impatient. They gathered around Aaron and said, Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what happened to him.
Aaron answered them, Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me. From there he crafted the golden calf they started worshipping. They started reveling and it was heard by Joshua and Moses. So they came down after receiving the revelation from the Lord to see what was going on. And the Lord was engulfed with anger.
And Moses interceded for Israel, not for the last time. After this disobedience, the Lord spared most of them, but he declared that some had to pay a price. So the Levites came forward with drawn swords and spears and started killing off thousands of people. And the Lord relented. Thank goodness for the mercy of the Lord. It’s the same mercy that David relied on when he numbered his people. He took confidence in the mercy of the Lord compared to the mercy of man. People paid the price but the majority of them were spared.
This is also the month the spies traveled through the promised land in Numbers 13 and 14. This period of time starting in Tammuz 18 going through Av 9 is called Between the Straits. It’s a period going from the breaking of the tablets to the returning of the spies from the promised land. Through lack of faith, they trusted their natural eyes and saw the giants in the land and did not have faith and trust in the Lord to believe that the land was theirs, that they could take the land.
So through the disobedience and lack of faith of 10, Israel traded 40 days of spying out the land and seeing the goodness of the land, for 40 years in the wilderness and the death of a generation. Lack of faith. Trusting their natural eyes. They allowed their eye gates to see in the natural and not in the spirit, not believing what the Lord had said early on. So they trusted their natural eyes.
I know many times we put more trust in our natural eyes than our spiritual eyes. That is where we need to guard our eyes. We’re visual people. I learn more things looking, visualizing and seeing someone do something than reading the directions on paper. We’re visual. We get a lot of information visually. The 10 spies trusted their natural eyes and said, There is no way we can take this land. There are giants in the land. There are walled cities in the land.
But Joshua and Caleb trusted in the Lord. Their eyes were focused on the Lord and what he said, and they came in with a different spirit. The Spirit of the Lord rose up within them and they believed, they knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that no matter how many giants or walled cities there were, the land was theirs. They were the only two out of that generation to possess their promise. (The others died.) By faith they knew it.
This time known as Between the Straits is a pathway from one expanse to another, and connected by a narrow space. This is going back to the constellation, the Crab, the hard shell crustacean. It has little flexibility. The Lord is calling us to break off that hardness—hardness of the heart and the hard shell that’s over us, so we can navigate through that narrow space.
That narrow space is not a place of fear but it’s a place of protection. The Lord is protecting us going through this period of expanse to expanse. If you picture an hourglass, the thin middle between the two bells is the strait. Straits are also known as shortcuts, so the Lord is giving us shortcuts. He’s giving us protection from one place to the next.
Tammuz 18 is when Moses brought down the tablets; and the golden calf. Av 9, the spies returning, and unbelief. This time was meant for a blessing. The Lord gave the revelation but the people rejected it by crafting an idol.
The Lord gave them the promised land but with unbelief they didn’t get it. So the moments meant for blessing didn’t come as blessings for them. But the Lord meant it for blessings and he means the blessings for us also.
Tammuz. Establish the brilliance of your righteousness. We went through 70 days of declaring the righteousness of the Lord in our nation. Righteousness exalts a nation. We walk in the righteousness of our God. It’s not our righteousness, which has been described as filthy rags. But his is a brilliance and glory and light.
We have a breastplate of righteousness. It’s a protection. If your righteousness does not shine this month, beware of negative attacks. And watch the events taking place in the earth. There is consistent unrest in the earth. Let the righteousness of the Lord shine forth to dispel the darkness.
This is also a month of worship, as I gave out the lyrics of those two songs. What are we worshiping? How are we worshiping? What attitude are we coming into worship? Are we worshiping God in spirit and in truth? Basically stripped of ourselves, our flesh? Are we coming in truth? Or are we coming in self and going through the motions?
Just raising hands and singing songs is not coming in spirit and in truth. That’s coming in with our flesh and not really entering in.
The Lord deserves our worship and our praise, all of our praise, all of our worship. So don’t come in with an attitude of a divided heart. Don’t divide your heart between one thing and the Lord. Give him your whole heart. Come into worship with your whole heart. Single eye focused on him. Undivided heart that is longing after him, longing after more and more and more, whatever that is, more and more.
The lack of brilliant worship can open the door to idolatry. That develops the golden calf. If we don’t watch out, the golden calf can kick back up. Do not come into agreement with the development of a golden calf. And worship the Lord in spirit and in truth.
This is the month of vision. The month of the eye. What we see. But also as we’ve said over and over and over for months and years, What are you saying? What are you speaking? What are you confessing? Watch your mouth and confess the best of the Lord, what the Lord has for you. Agree with his call on your life. Do not speak an evil report.
It’s easy to come into agreement with, I’m not feeling that well. I feel like I’m sick. You’ve just come into agreement with your feelings. Even though it’s physically manifesting, and with your eyes you’re seeing symptoms, 104 temp, I’ve got an infection or something, BUT confess with your mouth; pray and believe the best the Lord has for you. That is Health, Prosperity, Peace, Joy. Agree with his call on your life.
The Lord at a time of youth could have spoken and said, You will go to nations and preach my gospel. You could turn 40 years old. That could have been 30 years and you haven’t left home. But continue to agree with the calling on your life. The Lord called you to do something; he’s going to send you forth. It might not be that day, but he will send you forth, and he will send you forth with provision and with a vision.
And do not speak an evil report. Watch what you confess. Watch what you’re speaking. Not only to yourself but to other people. Don’t come into agreement with what the enemy is saying against someone else. Speak blessings upon them. Speak the goodness of the Lord over their lives. Speak the truth over their lives. That they are a royal priesthood, a holy nation. That they have a purpose and a destiny by the Lord.
Then speak out. Accept your call and speak forth your destiny. That’s coming into agreement. Speak out who you are. I’m not defeated. I’m more than a conqueror. That’s speaking out who you are. Don’t fall into negativity. That is a lie of the enemy. What and who are you agreeing with? That goes back to your eyes. Are you coming into agreement with what you’re seeing with your natural eyes? Or your spiritual eyes?
Find out and know yourself. The Lord made you for a purpose and a destiny. God does not make junk. As a kid I won a prize for a Sunday School contest. It was a poster of this weird-looking creature with big feet, pointy eyes, hair and everything. But the saying was, God does not make junk. That’s a confession. Confess that everyday. God does not make junk. I’m not junk because God does not make junk and God created me.
Find your redemptive role in life and avoid being miserable over an identity that you never tapped into. Know yourself. Know who God created you to be. Find your redemptive role in life. Don’t speak evil reports about yourself as a result of something created in the atmosphere.
Tammuz, the filmstrip month. It’s reviewing. Eyes. In order to review something you use your eyes. We’re back to the eyes. Review your progress and stop to make adjustments. It’s like going on a trip and your GPS is going. You take a wrong turn—Recalculating. Recalculating. Recalculating. Puts you back on the path. Or sets you on another path to get you to where you need to be. So take that time. Review.
If you’ve got to recalculate, the Lord will help you recalculate. Holy Spirit will lead you in wisdom to recalculate your path. God can show you where you’ll end up if you don’t make the necessary changes. I’ve had that happen before. I was on a path and the Lord showed me, This is where you’re going to end up if you don’t recalculate. I’m giving you a chance. I’m giving you an opportunity. Recalculate. And I’ll give you the plan to do it. I’ll give you the ability to do it. I’ll give you the path to do it. I will strengthen your feet to do it. I will strengthen your resolve to do it.
Steadfastness. Giving you a steadfastness of your heart to continue to do and to move on the recalculated path that the Lord has set before you.
The letter of the month is CHET. It’s light radiating from your eyes. There are the eyes again. Light radiating FROM your eyes. The light we have been working on the last months needs to be seen in our eyes. It’s that glory coming forth. Watch out. The devil will try to put out the light in your eyes.
Just this morning I was reminded of Saul before he became Paul. He had that encounter with the Lord, got knocked off his high horse, became blind; then his sight was restored like scales being removed, a veil being removed off his eyes so he could see again. The enemy is trying to blind us and put those scales on our eyes so our vision’s not clear. The Lord is bringing and has brought clarity of sight. Clarity to our vision.
Going back to that Between the Straits times, this letter CHET depicts protection, fence, threshold, new beginnings, that narrow place. So CHET is connecting in with the narrow place, that protection.
The tribe for this month is Reuben. He was Jacob and Leah’s first son, their first fruit. Genesis 29:32. Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben. She said, It is because the Lord has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now. His name means, Behold, a son. Look, a son. Eyes. Going back to the eyes. Look, a son.
Reuben’s downfall in Genesis 35:22 changed the course of Reuben’s life. It’s an example we can look to. To not go down that road. That’s when Reuben brought defilement to his father by sleeping with his concubine. That led to his position as the firstborn, which is an important role in the family, the rights that come with it went to Joseph.
This action revealed his inability to maintain self-control under pressure. I Corinthians 9:24. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize. Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the game goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore, I do not run like someone running aimlessly. I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No. I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave, so that after I preach to others I myself will not be disqualified from the prize.
Self-control. Maintaining self-control and self-discipline.
Then Jacob removed the right of the firstborn from Reuben and gave it to Joseph. Reuben could have chosen to go down a path of resentment and bitterness, vengefulness and self-pity, but he chose not to be consumed by all this. He demonstrated the fruit of repentance in how he lived the rest of his life. In the rest of his life his actions demonstrated love and concern toward his brothers, father, and family. He stopped his brothers from killing Joseph, the very one that received the rights that he had. He could have easily out of vengefulness said, Y’all take care of him. I hate him. I don’t care if he’s my brother. I hate him. But he didn’t do that.
This showed redemption in his life and he came in and decided to save his brother, convinced his other brothers not to kill him. And his plan was to go back and rescue him out of that cistern he was thrown into. His plan was to restore him back to his father.
Also, when the famine hit the land, Joseph had the second-highest position in Egypt, and was controlling all of the grain distribution and supplies they were handing out to the people. Jacob sent his sons to get grain. Their money was put back in their bags. They came back. It was one thing after another. We’re going to die for this. When Joseph found out about Benjamin, and demanded that he be brought back with them—it would have destroyed Jacob if something happened to Benjamin—Reuben offered up his two sons to spare the life of Benjamin if something happened. You can see the turn. Even though Reuben’s rights of the firstborn were taken away, he moved into a redemptive part of his life. Even though he lost the position, he still acted like a firstborn.
Genesis 49:3-4. Jacob’s blessings to his sons before he died. He blessed all his sons but reminded Reuben of his transgressions. But when Moses blessed the tribes before he died, he gave a redemptive word to Reuben.
Deuteronomy 33:6. Moses said, Let Reuben live and not die nor his people be few. Jacob, Israel, his father, basically disowned him; and as he was leaving this earth reminded him of his transgressions. But through Moses the Lord restored a redemptive word to Reuben. Reuben, live and not die nor your people be few.
The tribe of Reuben was paired with Simeon and Gad in the wilderness. They camped south of the tabernacle. They were the second group to march out after Judah, Issachar, and Jebulun. The tribes of Reuben were a rearguard. They had the second largest number of warriors, just behind Judah, Issachar and Jebulun. They chose to take land east of the Jordan River, but faithfully fought alongside the other tribes to secure Canaan.
They received their inheritance early. They chose to go on one side of the Jordan, but they were faithful enough to help their brothers, the other tribes, to secure their promise.
So Father, we thank you. We pray and ask that you open our eyes. And remove any scales, any veils, that might hinder our vision to be clear. Father, give us a heart of worship that comes before you undivided. And Lord, search us out and our land. Show us the idols we have erected.
I pray as Gideon went though and destroyed the idols, the Asherah poles and the altars set before them by his family and by his tribe, Father God, I just pray that you go forth and destroy those idols, anything we set before us instead of you as a replacement, a cheap replacement, Father, destroy it. Give us clarity of vision to see these things and to walk away from them.
Father God, give us a heart of worship and I just pray that even where we have strayed off course as Reuben did, I pray that you bring us back to full, complete plumb, in alignment with you. And I pray every redemptive plan you have for each and every one of us, and corporately, that we will see it; we will speak it; and we will believe it by faith in Jesus name; and the lies of the enemy will fall before us null and void with no authority in Jesus name. Amen.
🎶I will pursue you. I will pursue your presence. I’m pressing into you. So do not pass me by. I’m breaking through the boundaries. I will not be denied. Open my eyes. Search me inside. I can’t live without your presence. Can’t live without your presence Jesus. Your presence brings fullness of joy. May Christ be the center of my life.
Kimble Love. Welcome to Miracle City Global today. I want to encourage you to enter in and not be moved by the things this world has to offer, but look to Him, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, the one who quickens us and empowers us to go forth to do all he created us to do, to seek his face and his goodness at all times. Because God is good all the time. And all the time God is…Good! Amen.
I want to give a shout out to all who came and prepared the facility this week while I was out with family. I appreciate you all so much. It’s the little things in life sometimes. When I pulled up here yesterday afternoon and walked in and saw everything was done, I said, Thank you Jesus.
I appreciate everything you’ve done, the calls, the texts, the cards, the flowers, the memorials, the flowers the church sent as a memorial to my Dad. It was just awesome. He was a good man. I testified to who my dad was here on Father’s Day. He said he was ready to go home and God took him. He said, Come on up here. God is good. Glory to God.
I want to encourage you today. We’re going to have an awesome time in the Lord. I’m just so happy to see you here. I’m excited about what he is doing in our midst. Men’s Ministry is Tuesday night. We don’t come in this place that God doesn’t move. He moves. Glory to God. Wednesday service with worship intercession and Mary Martha ladies’ ministry on Thursday.
I want to encourage you in the Lord. This is a new month, Tammuz, a time to reflect. It’s a time to look at where you are in your walk, to look back and see where your progression is; and it’s also a time to look and look again.
The Lord has been stirring at me about his Word. The Word of God is powerful and effective. When we hear the Word and read the Word, it’s not just an action. The Word goes forth and it’s powerful and it gives an impartation. It’s not just words to hear or words to read. It’s the very source of the life we seek from heaven to operate in the earth.
So when we hear the Word or read the Word, the first thing we have to do is receive it. As we receive it, then we need to begin to believe it. As we believe it, we need to allow that word to begin to work in us. So many times we get to that point and that’s where we stop.
But after we’ve heard the Word or read the Word, received the Word, and believed the Word, and allowed the Word to work in us; then it’s time for us to start working the Word wherever we go. It’s time to work the Word. It’s time to work the Word. Because if we’ll starting working the Word, those things we’ve been standing for, hoping for, praying for, will begin to manifest in our midst. So we’ve got to move from just that hearing part to the doing part in order to receive the full bounty of our blessing.
So Lord, we thank you today for the Word. Your Word is powerful and effective. Lord, you didn’t just give us your Word to make us feel good, to make our ears tingle, to make the hairs stand up on our bodies, but you gave us your Word to empower, equip, to energize, to give us the ability to go forth and conquer, to take dominion back over the world.
Father, I thank you that you’re not a little god; you’re a great God. You are The God, the One and Only God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Your Word went forth and created. You speak it and it happens. You speak it and it’s done.
So Lord, you said that we are like you. You have put your word in our mouth. You have given us an instructed tongue to know the word that sustains the weary. So therefore, Lord, as your Word has worked us, we declare that now we are going to begin to work your Word to see this world changed, to come back into submission. That your kingdom come on the earth as it is in heaven in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
Well, praise the Lord. We’re going to worship. God is good. He is laughing. He is excited. I believe Zephaniah 3:17 has started right here. He is spinning about wildly and he is rejoicing over his people. As we enter back into worship, we are going to rejoice in the Lord. We are going to see the Lord rejoicing in us in Jesus name. Amen.
🎶Break down the walls. Push back the dark. Light of the world, move in our hearts. This stirring in the spirit, Heaven. Holy. Can you feel it? Heaven. Let your glory and your power. Let your majesty and worth flood the earth. Let the rumors of your kingdom; let your name without reserve flood the earth. Freedom is here. Fear has to leave. Every heart here can you feel it? Heaven.
Let it rain. Open the floodgates of heaven. Let it rain.
I saw the Lord and his train fills the temple. I saw the Lord seated on high. I saw the Lord and his train fills the temple. I saw the Lord. He’s seated on high. And we cry, Holy Holy is the Lord. Holy are you Lord. God of the Angel Armies, Holy Holy.
Betty Love. Heaven cries holy. The whole world is filled with his glory. I see us as the temple of the Lord, as his dwelling place. As heaven is crying holy, he is going to shake our threshold today. I said, He is going to shake our threshold today. Glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, glory, Hei Hei Hei. Heaven cries Holy and the whole earth is filled with his glory. Filled with his glory.
Lift up your heads oh ye gates. Be lifted up you ancient doors. The King of Glory…is coming in today and he’s filling the temple.
🎶Heaven cries holy and the whole earth is filled with his glory. Come shake out everything that can be shaken.
Anna Love. This morning as we stand in worship, just as she said the threshold is shaking, the Lord is opening our eyes in this new month to see clearly, and he is showing the unstable places in our lives. There are plenty of places in all of our lives that we pass over and say, Oh that’s just me; but the Lord is saying, NO, not anymore. He’s shaking out everything that can be shaken.
He’s shaking out the chaff in our lives, the attitudes, the thoughts, the ideologies that are not him; the things that are our own concepts. As I see conception, I see there are things in our own lives that we’ve given birth to that are not of God. Just as we’re in the month not to worship the idol, not to have a golden calf, the Lord is saying, Will you put to death today those things in your life?
Will you put to death those idols? Because those very things, those attitudes or mindsets we hold onto will become idols. Those small things become large things.
The Lord is saying it’s time to pick up his Sword of Truth and cut the head off the giants, the giants we’ve allowed into our lives. The giants, the strongmen that we’ve given residence to.
The Lord is shaking things up and shaking things out. And just as this is the month to turn away, this is a month to not go into a bad cycle. This is a month to course correct. The Lord is reminding me of Samson in the temple. Samson messed up and got off his calling, but in his final hours of his life there was a whole lot of shaking going on in the foundation of that temple. He killed more in the enemy’s camp that day and time than ever before.
The Lord is saying he is shaking the threshold, but this is not our final act. This is Act One. The Lord is making us ready to open the gate, to pass through. You’ve wondered why you’ve been held back, why you haven’t been able to go forward. You weren’t ready, but he suring up those things. He’s suring up those spots. He’s opening our eyes.
So allow him to shake off in this time of worship. It doesn’t have to be a long drawn-out thing. I thank the Lord that he is capable of all things. Maybe things you’ve dealt with for years he is going to heal in a moment today if you’ll take it.
🎶Oh come shake out everything that can be shaken. Open our eyes.
There’s a whole lot of shaking going on.
Marion Neill. Twelve years ago today we stood at Titan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, for twelve hours. We worshiped and we prayed and we cried out for America. I have such a sense of governmental greatness today. It’s the threshold that we are standing in. And we are about to launch out into God’s timing, his government established in the earth. Yes, he’s shaking. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken in this season when God will prevail and he will have his way. And his government will fill the earth as the mountain, in Jesus name.
And I hear the Lord saying for Miracle City Global, This is a day of governmental increase. This is a day of mantles falling. This is a day of establishing you in a new way. You stood in that stadium and you received that day from glory; the glory of God is being revealed among his people.
I thank you for the mantles that have been dropped on Kimble and Betty and Anna Love this day. Father, we will look back on this day and we will see your glory and your hand being established in the earth in here.
Danette Riley. I see this place surrounded with a heavenly host. It’s like in a big city and there’s a big arrest, and the Lord says for us to come out with our hands up. This place is surrounded by him. He says, I am issuing a warrant from heaven. I am coming after what is mine. The Lord says to come out. Come out. Surrender. Surrender with your hands up.
🎶Oh we surrender.
I know I will never be alone. There’s another in the fire, standing next to me. There’s another in the waters holding back the seas. Should I ever need reminding how I’ve been set free, there’s a cross that bears the burden where another died for me. I’m no longer enslaved to my sin anymore. Nothing stands between us. I will joy in every battle cause I know that’s where you’ll be.
Now nothing can hold me back from you. Your love will never let me go.
Kimble Love. Glory to God. Let not your hearts be troubled, church. Because there’s another in the fire. Let not your hearts be troubled. There’s one that’s holding back the waters. He is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. And his name is Jesus. He is the Author and the Perfecter of our faith. Nothing escapes his sight.
He knows right where you are. He knows what you’re going through. And praise God you’re not going to stay there because he’s going to take you through it. Look to the other side because we’re coming out. We’re crossing over. We’re entering into our promise, Amen? And no weapon formed against us shall prosper. We refute any tongue that rises to accuse us in the name of Jesus.
Say after me, I will not be denied my purpose, my birthright, or my destiny any longer. Because I said I am his son, his daughter, and I walk in the fullness of purpose in Jesus name. Say Amen if you believe it. Amen.
It’s time the Church begins to realize who we are. And it’s not who we are, but who He says we are. It’s who he made us to be. I’m like Navin Johnson when the new phone books came out—I’m somebody! Some of you know what I’m talking about. Hey! You’re a somebody. It’s like Brad said this morning, ‘God don’t make no junk!’ He doesn’t make mistakes.
He made each one of us wonderful, in his image, unique, and placed us here in the earth to walk in a purpose and do what only you can do. See, I can’t do what he created you to do. And you can’t do what he created me to do. We all have our places. But when we all come together in unity and unison, look out now!
The enemy has been defeated. Satan is not God’s nemesis. He is under His feet. The devil has no power—except that which we give him. So quit giving your power away.
We’re going to receive the offering, the first fruits of the month of Tammuz, our tithes and our offerings because God has richly blessed us.
He has given us the ability to produce wealth. He has blessed the labor of our hands. And we as his people in obedience to his word are going to come and bring that portion unto God which is his. The Word says he loves a cheerful giver. I’m a giver and I’ve been praying that I’m able to give much more. Because God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him.
So Father, today we thank you that you have blessed us and given us the ability to produce wealth. I thank you that you give supernatural increase to all that we receive today, for whatever comes into this house. I thank you that your anointing comes upon it and you bring supernatural increase into this house. Lord, this is good ground. Miracle City Global is a great investment for the kingdom of God. Because, Lord God, you have called us to do mighty works. And mighty works are essential.
But God, you own the cattle on a thousand hills, and I thank you that you have more than enough. You don’t tell us to do anything without going before us and making a way where there seems to be no way. So Lord, I thank you that you empower and equip us, that you put the tools in our hands that we need to complete the work and fulfill the vision you’ve called us to. And Lord, that we will see your goodness cover this land like the waters cover the sea.
As we come today and sow in to advance the kingdom, we come to the table of the Lord to partake of Communion, the cup and the bread in memorial to what Jesus did for us.
The Word of God tells us on the night that he was betrayed, Jesus met with his disciples and had his last supper in the earth. During that supper he took bread and broke it and said, This bread is my body which is broken for you. Whenever you eat of it, do it in remembrance of me.
Then he took the cup, held it up and blessed it and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, that will be for all who believe. Whenever you drink of this cup, do this in remembrance of me. So today as we come and sow, we’re going to partake of the table of the Lord, of the bread and the cup, of his body and of his blood.
As we take these elements, we recognize them symbolically as the body and blood of Jesus. But when we take it into our body, I believe that his spiritual DNA comes upon us and within us to fulfill the Word, to receive the bountiful fullness of the New Covenant that he’s given us.
That New Covenant is salvation, deliverance, healing, wholeness, provision, the full meal deal that he provided for us—everlasting life with the Father, with the Son, and with the Holy Spirit.
So Lord, today we thank you that you have blessed us with the ability to produce. We thank you for the body and for the blood. We thank you that you have redeemed us, the means that brought us back into relationship with our Father by your sacrifice. And Lord, we thank you for that sacrifice. And we praise you Lord that you’re not in the tomb, that you’re alive and you have risen. And you sit at the right hand of the Father and ever make intercession for us, your Bride.
So Lord, we worship you today and we thank you. We give you praise and glory in your name. Amen and Amen. Come receive the fullness of Christ’s resurrection.
🎶We acknowledge your blood and your body broken for us. You have been so so good/kind to me. Oh the overwhelming never-ending reckless love of God. Oh it chases me down, fights till I’m found, leaves the 99. I couldn’t earn it. I don’t deserve it. Still you gave yourself away.
Your love vanquished all my enemies. Broke the chains that silenced me and set this songbird free. Now I sing for all the love you’ve given me. I rejoice because you’ve chosen me and called this orphan home. Your love is relentless and it’s coming after me.
You won’t relent until you have it all. My heart is yours. I’ll set you as a seal upon my heart, as a seal upon my arm. For there is love that is as strong as death, jealousy demanding as the grave, and many waters cannot quench this love.
Come be the fire inside of me. Come be the flame upon my heart. Until you and I are one. You can have it all, every part of me. Nothing off limits.
Let this be a sacrifice. Let me dedicate my life to worship you. I’m a lover of your presence. It’s all we want to be. I was made for this. To give you glory. To tell your story.
We were made for you. We belong to you. We are his reflection in the earth. As Jesus was so are we in the earth.
Father, we thank you for your glory that you have not only deposited within us, but you are clothing your sons in glory, and bringing many sons to glory. We have come into glory, the glory of the One and only, the glory of the Son. We have stepped into him. We are in him. We are in Christ. And he’s in us. Spirit of glory is in this place today. Living on the inside of you and me.
🎶We say Attention to our spirit man. Awaken up your righteousness. Oh it’s time to see the right. Awaken. Awaken. Attention. Attention. Let righteousness arise. We are the righteousness of Christ.
Betty Love. Praise you Lord. Father, I thank you for the signs and wonders and miracles that are present here today living in every son and daughter that is present. Father, we give you glory and honor. All glory and honor to you, to Jesus. Holy Spirit, we honor you as the Spirit of the Lord, our Helper, the Revelator, the Revolutionary living on the inside of us, the Reformer and the Transformer, the Anointing, Hei Hei, Spirit of Glory, Healer, Miracle Worker, Voice of the Lord, Rivers of Living Water, the Seed, the Seal, and the Sign, Holy Spirit, Creator. Come. Come. Come in us.

Father, I just want to acknowledge the movement, your movement of worship in this place. I want to acknowledge the great cloud of witnesses that have joined with us today. Welcoming the voices out of the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus. Welcoming the angelic beings and angel armies, living creatures, the heavenly messengers, on earth as it is in heaven.
I thank you your kingdom is here. Your kingdom is now. And Lord we thank you for manifestations and demonstrations of your power. Jesus, that you are working with us today to confirm the word with signs following. And so is the word that goes out of your mouth today. The word of the Lord goes forth with full authority, with full power, to accomplish and prosper in what it’s sent to do. Into every heart. into every life, into the land, into the heavens, and on earth in Jesus mighty name. Amen and Amen.
Thank you Lord. Praise you Jesus. And Lord, I acknowledge that I am totally dependent upon you. How many know that’s a good place to be?
I believe out of this house today and out of your life that Luke 7:22 is going to be a manifestation, a word, where when Jesus answered he said, Go back and report what you have seen and heard. The blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear; the dead are raised, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
I believe the report over your life and my life today is that the blind see and the lame walk. I believe that ungodly governments, the ungodly government of the enemy that has caused lameness in your life, that ungodly structure, that 12 is coming down today. And I believe it is not by accident—thank you Marion for reminding us of 7/7/07.
For 40 days prior to 7/7/07, we entered into a time of fasting and prayer. 40 days, acknowledging that as a nation, a remnant rose up to decree and declare that we were divorcing the Baal structures in our lives that had led this nation into 40 years of chaos and rebellion.
I believe when we entered into that place, and we covenanted together with those across the nation, and leaders across this nation, political leaders, leaders in the Church, stood on that platform and began to repent and renounce and break agreement with the ungodly structures, I believe that God heard those prayers. I believe those things were recorded in heaven. It was an ordained day for the turning of a nation.
And we’ve not yet seen the manifestation of all that we set in motion on that day. But I will tell you. Get ready because it is upon us. What was impossible in the natural, the Lord is saying to raise your gaze. You need to look and look again. You’re not in a duel with the enemy because the enemy has already been defeated. And when the enemy invites you to engage him in a duel, you just need to decree and declare you’ve got victory.
There are several words that came to me. As I sat with the Lord, one of the first things the Lord said to me on July 5 was out of Proverbs 3. I decree and declare in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth that we have an ear to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is speaking to the Church. I decree and declare—you think, Oh I’ve heard this before. I know this. I’ve heard it before.
The Lord is saying to us, Look and look again. Because you haven’t seen or heard the things that the Lord has prepared for those that have waited upon him, that love him. No one has seen, no ear has heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared; but these days have been prepared before the foundations of the earth and you’re going to step into them.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on you own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. Dottie, I want you to come now and release that word. We’re not finished with Proverbs 3.
The Lord gave me a word yesterday. He said the Gate of The Way. The Way. Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. The Gate of The Way will come into Miracle City. You can’t go back. Once you step through this gate, Betty, you cannot go back.
I see a gate that is open in the realm of the Spirit and once you step through it, for me there is a point of no return. As we were singing Holy Holy Holy, I saw the Lord. I see the Lord high and lifted up and those four living creatures are continually crying out Holy Holy Holy, so the whole earth can be filled with his glory. And when they cry Holy, things begin to shake. Thresholds shake.
Dottie Duckworth. I looked up threshhold. Gate, door, end, boundary, the place or point of entry or beginning, the outset of a threshold. I was reminded of when a couple gets married. And they walk up to that threshold. The bride doesn’t even have to take a step over. All she has to do is surrender to the bridegroom picking her up and carrying her over. Hei. Hooooo… It’s not a hard thing. Just surrender.
Betty. The Lord said yesterday, You’re not a lady-in-waiting. A lady-in-waiting, you are not. A bride set apart for my glory, you are. That is every believer in this room. We are the Bride. We are sons of God and we are the Bride. He said, A lady-in-waiting, you are not. A bride set apart for my glory, you are. He is opening a gate for you. He is opening a gate in this house. It is Himself—the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Jesus said, I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. He is saying, I am the three entrances into the Almighty. I am the Gate, the Door and the Veil. No one comes to the Father but through me. So it’s in Jesus, through Jesus, by Jesus that we enter in. And he is opening up himself. He is the key. He is the sure foundation. He is the stability of our times.
I heard Anna say it. I heard Nita say it. Neither one of them knew what I was ministering on this day, but we’re going to deal with waver and wavering. He is going to uproot out of your life doubt, fear, panic, pride, worry, what has bound and blocked you from entering in through The Way. The Way has been made. Our King has gone up before us and broken open The Way. So The Way Gate is open.
And I want you to know that it’s a Weigh Gate. It’s a Weigh Gate. It’s going to weigh and measure what’s going on in your life. It’s going to put you on the scales and it’s going to bring you into alignment and a balance in your life that you haven’t had heretofore. You’re going to the Weigh Station and he is going to begin to weigh the things in your life.
It’s the film strip month. You’re going to see what has been. You get to go into the, hei hei hei, field house. And you’re going to go into the room. They’re going to put up for you a filmstrip of where you’ve been, what you’ve done, and show you the way the enemy has played you in the past. Because the scheme of the enemy is being revealed in this hour. It’s not a duel, but it is a defeat, a reckoning of what is already done in the realm of the Spirit. They were all over the words this morning that came forth, from Anna to Nita to Danette and Nancy, each one building on the other.
When we talk about where we are in this season and where we are as a nation, we are dealing with a greek mindset. God does not work with a greek mindset. He has a Hebraic mindset. The western church is so saturated with a greek mindset. The Lord told me years back, I’m going to deal with that Aristotle thinking. Greek philosophy. Clay Nash released a word this week about that greek mindset. I thought it was funny because the Lord was speaking to me.
I saw over this nation a ruling spirit. I saw the Aristotle Greek mindset like a canopy over the nation. How many have ever been camping in a tent? I remember the tent we had in the 60s would zip up. I saw a zipper going over the nation, and the tent was pitched. I saw the Lord unzip that canopy or covering with the greek mindset that tries to reason it out.
And the Lord said, Reason is here to try and speak to you, but I have cut off the voice of reason. Reason has rested. Now faith rises. I AM.
In Psalm 26:1 it says, I have relied on and trusted confidently in the Lord without wavering, and I shall not slip. So he says, Trust in the Lord with all of you heart. Lean not on you own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes. Fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops, then your barns will be full to overflowing and your vats will brim over with new wine.
So the Lord spoke to me on July 5. The first thing he said was, Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. Then he released a Hebrew word, asah. Asah means to create. It’s what happened when the Spirit of the Lord was hovering over the surface of the deep, when God opened his mouth and he spoke. And heaven moved. And Holy Spirit created. So He said, Don’t lean on your own understanding. Just in all you ways acknowledge me and let’s asah. Let’s create. Let’s bring heaven on earth.
And he said, How long will you waver between two opinions? He wants to deal with wavering in our lives. Wavering in regard to who God is, what his Word says about him, and the Word of God and the true promises spoken into your life.
I want to share with you what the Lord says about wavering. Waver: to shake with a quivering motion; to become unsteady or unreliable; falter; hesitate; to be undecided between two opinions or courses of acton; to be irresolute; undecided; indecisive; hesitate; to be in a dither. That takes me back because I can remember using that word—They were just in a dither. They didn’t know which way to go or what to do.
To vacillate; to fluctuate; to see-saw. He wants to deal with the places where you and I are see-sawing in our life. There are some issues God is going to settle within you and me as we stand at this threshold. It’s about your birthright. It’s about your inheritance. It’s about you occupying and possessing your land.
The word waver means to yo-yo. I don’t want to be a yo-yo. Up and down, up and down, up and down; to think twice; to change one’s mind. The only change I want to see in your mind and my mind is a renewed mind to the Word of God, the will of God, and the way of God. To get cold feet, to dally, stall, cower, hum and haw, dilly dally, shilly shally, pussy foot around, blow hot and cold, sit on the fence, up one day and down the next, or minute to minute.
If a man lacks wisdom, according to the book of James, let him ask of God. And when he asks, let him not doubt. Let him not waver. Otherwise you’ll be like a wave of the sea that is tossed to and fro. The Lord wants to do different in your life and my life today. He is calling us to a higher place.
He said, It’s time not to just brave the storm but to harness the storm. Ride it like the eagle. Ride on the storm. It’s time. The Lord is not wanting us to be tossed to and fro. So any place that you’ve wavered, any place of doubt and unbelief, he’s going to deal with it.
Ephesians 4:14. So then we may no longer be children tossed like ships to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, the prey of the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men and gamblers engaged in every shifting form of trickery, inventing error to mislead.
It’s grow up time. It’s go up time.
Hebrews 10:23. Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering. For he who promised is faithful. I am here as his voice in the earth today. If you believe that who stands at this mic is his representative, then his word to you is this. Hold fast to the faith, to the promise, to the profession of your faith. His name is Jesus Christ.
Against all hope, in hope Abraham believed and so became, without wavering in unbelief in regard to the promise. He gave glory to God and he was strengthened in his faith. You know when he gave glory, when he worshiped God, it caused him to be strengthened in his faith. Because he was persuaded that the one who had made the promise had the power to fulfill it. He faced the facts that his body was as good as dead. Hey, in the natural, if I reason this thing out, I’m 99 years old and it’s not going to happen. We’ve been trying this kid thing, and doing some Ishmael things, and golden calf things long enough to know, hey, it’s not going to work here.
But I have a promise from Almighty God that says that my seed is going to be as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sand on the earth. Now how could that be? Well, maybe it’s going to be through this or maybe this. Now that’s called reason. Do you hear what I’m saying? Quit trying to reason out how God is going to do it and raise your gaze. Fix your eyes.
Set your heart and your mind on things above and hear what God is saying to you and believe it. Faith comes by hearing—hearing the Word. We are in a season Hebraically to accept the call of God on your life and decree it. Why? Because he is going to establish it on earth as it is in heaven. And light, revelation, is going to shine on your path.
Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Lean not on your own reasoning—how you understand it in the natural. But acknowledge the Lord in all of your ways. That’s every part and piece of your life. And then he’s going to direct and make plain and straight your path. You’re going to be on the path. He’s going to recalculate. This is a time and season where he is going to recalculate. He is going to navigate you. He is going to set you in oneness with him so that you can move forward.
Don’t be in despair when you realize that for Israel beginning on the 17th of the month of July, this month, through the 9th of Av, is when they made some of the grossest errors in judgment. They had an opportunity after 40 days to enter into the promised land. And they chose not to believe God and take him at his word, so it became 40 years instead of 40 days.
They call it the narrow place but it depends on how you’re going to look at it. You need to look and look again. My narrow place is just a connector to get me into the spacious place. I learned about straits when I followed and studied geography and history. I loved history. I loved geography. I loved learning about the land and the land masses, and hahaha, and connecters. So this is the time of dire straits to some but it’s not dire straits to me. It’s dire straits to the enemy because my Way-maker has made a way. He has opened a gate and once I enter in that gate, once I’m in the strait of the Lord, the gate of the Lord, the way of the Lord, hey, there isn’t any going back because you can’t turn the ship around in the strait. You’ve just got to keep going until you get to the other side. Keep moving. Keep going. He’s got us. Yay!
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. And he says, No longer is the sea going to drive you. You can be either driven by the circumstance or you can drive it. He wants you to harness, not apart from him. In our human selves, we can’t do it. But in who we are in Christ, we can do it. You can do it.
We’re going to look at waver in the Hebrew in Strong’s. OT 6452. To hop, to skip over, to pass over, to spring over, to limp, be lame, become lame, to hesitate, to waver or stagger, to withdraw from, to separate thoroughly, to oppose, to doubt. When I looked at that word in the Hebrew I was led of Holy Spirit to look up this word lame.
I believe the meanings of the word lame are indicators because we’re at the threshold. And if you will listen and if you find yourself in one of these definitions, I can guarantee you your eyes will see, and where you have been lame, where you have been halt, you will be no more.
Lame: unable to walk normally because of an injury or illness affecting the leg or the foot. My question to you right now is this. Is there any place in your life where you are unable to walk? Have you got an injury or illness that’s affecting your leg or your foot in the natural or spiritually? Limping, hobbling, crippled, disabled, incapacitated, handicapped, debilitated, infirmed, deformed, mutilated, maimed, defective, halt.
The opposite of that is being able-bodied. I would say unto you today, the Lord wants to strengthen you in your inner man by the power of his Holy Spirit, and he wants to bring your entire spirit, soul and body into divine order and alignment. He wants you to be able bodied in Christ. He is raising up an able-bodied church.
The word lame also as a verb means incapacitate, impair, damage. Now these are what I want you to look at. There are 12 definitions. These are the words that he showed me are indicators in the body of Christ of where he wants to heal us and deliver us.
Incapacitate, impair, damage, put out of action. What has put you out of action? We need to ask ourselves. What has put you out of action? Is it a physical injury? Is it something that is going on in your soul? Is it addiction? It is oppression? Depression? What has affected your soul? Your body?
Render or make powerless. weaken, enfeeble, debilitate, indispose, make unfit. What has the enemy tempted you with or what trap have you fallen into, whether it is a present sin or a past sin that causes you to believe the lie that you are unfit for service? When the Lord himself says, How much more will the blood of Christ cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death so that we may serve? Repent and turn to God that times of refreshing may come. It’s time.
Our Father has qualified us to share in the inheritance. He qualifies you. You didn’t qualify you. He qualified you and me in Christ Jesus. So if you’ve believed the lie that you are unfit, the Lord says, Come to Me all you who are weary and heavy-laden. The word means also immobilized, ham stringed, paralyzed, prostrate, torpefy. I’ve never heard that word, so let’s look at them just a minute. To me it’s worth it. You may say this is negative. What negative have you got in your life, because the Lord is ready to turn it to a positive. What has produced death, he is ready to bring life.
Incapacitate means to prevent from functioning in the normal way. I want you to know that our normal is not of the earthly normal. Our normal is of the supernatural. So if there is not function in your spirit, and you’re not functioning as a son of God on earth as it is in heaven, the Lord wants to deal with what has incapacitated you and caused you not to function. Because he is ready for function.
Miracle City is about functioning with heaven. It’s his house. He wants to bring the prototype that is in the heavenly realm and manifest it on earth. And if we didn’t have anything but the words that he released and the songs that he released, hey, we could work that for a while.
So if you have been incapacitated and you do not have full functionality in your spirit, God is saying today, That is a place where you are lame and I want to heal you. Go and report the blind see and the lame walk.
The word impair means to weaken or damage something, especially a human faculty or function. Where have you been weakened or damaged physically, mentally, that has prevented you from functioning as the son of God and the child of God, as the king priest in the holy nation that you are. The Word says, Where you are weak, he is strong. This is a now faith day.
The word damage—physical harm caused to something in such a way as to impair its value, usefulness, or normal function. My question today is, Do you know your worth? Do you know your value? What has happened in your life? Maybe even since conception where the enemy screams that you are worthless. That you have no value. Your value is the price that has been paid for you. And it’s with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. God so loved you and me that he gave his Son—for the purpose, for the birthright, for the destiny. So if you have been dealing with a place and you feel like you are damaged goods, I’ve got good news for you. The Lord is ready to restore to you the crown of beauty, the oil of gladness, and the garment of praise.
So where you have felt worthless and your life was ashes and nothing, the Lord says, I have made you something. It’s time for you to know who you are and whose you are. It’s true identity being revealed in this hour. Wake up sons of God.
The word lame also means to weaken, to make or become weaker in power, resolve, or physical strength. And it is a scheme of the enemy to try to weaken you and wear you and me down. In fact, Daniel talks about in the last days, Those that know their God will be strong and will go forth and do great exploits. But he talked about the scheme of the enemy is to wear out and wear down the saints, to weaken you and me. To weaken us in power, resolve, and physical strength.
The Lord says, I am ready to strengthen you in your inner man by the power of my Spirit. And not only am I going to strengthen you from the inside out, I want you to wear the power. And you will receive power when Holy Spirit comes upon you. We summon the Helper. He’s on the inside of us. Call the Helper. Holy Spirit, Come, fill me. Clothe me. Empower me. Strengthen me. Where I’m weak I decree and declare I am made strong. The enemy wants to weaken you in your belief in who God is and in the Word.
The word lame also means to debilitate. That is to make someone weak or infirm; to hinder or delay. How many of you have ever been hindered? Delayed? When you get delayed or you continually get hindered, and you can’t get to the end of that thing, or you don’t realize that promise, or that cycle just continues, what happens is hope deferred wants to set up in our hearts. So where you have been debilitated, where you have been delayed, where you have been held up, the Lord says, I am removing.
Remember what he said last week. Betty, I am running up the center. I’m going up the middle. That means he is running through the enemy and he is dividing and removing what has blocked you and me. If God is going, I’m going with him. It’s time to move.
The word enfeeble means to make weak or feeble. All of these are about weakness. Indisposed; to make someone unfit for or unable to do something. Where do you feel like you are unable or you are not fit? Because God says I have made you able. I have made you able because I am able. It’s where we are. To make someone averse to something. Indisposed.
So if the enemy can’t make you feel like you’re not able, then he’ll just make you averse to that thing. I just don’t want to go do that. I just don’t have the heart for that anymore. The enemy has a scheme. And it is to stop you. It is to steal, to kill, and to destroy the work of God in the earth. And he can’t stop it. There are things that he cannot and will not stop in this hour.
The Lord says you can get on this side of it, or you can come on the tail end of it. But as for me and my house, we’re going. Because we’re serving.
Immobilize is another word for lame. To prevent someone or something from moving or operating. It also means to restrict the movements of a limb. To restrict.
Hamstring. To cripple by cutting their hamstring. Severely restrict the efficiency or effectiveness of. Any place that you or I or the people of God have been hamstringed, the Lord says, No More! Because he is coming in here today to heal. So where you have not been efficient and effective, where you have been severely restricted, the Lord says, The lame will be healed.
Paralyze. To render unable to think or act, especially through panic or fear. In Deuteronomy 20:1-4, when the children of Israel were going out to war, the priests would come and pronounce a blessing. He said, Don’t waver in resolve. Don’t fear. Don’t hesitate. Don’t panic. God your God is right there with you.
In Deuteronomy 28 it says that if any among you are wavering in resolve and afraid, you need to go home. There is a Warrior Bride that is rising. There is an army that is rising in the earth that will not break rank, that will not stop, with Jesus at the head of the army, and he is going to deal with fear and panic. I would say that is one of the strongest things—doubt, fear, and unbelief—that keeps you from occupying and keeps you from facing down your enemy.
The Lord is dropping a plumb line of righteousness in you and me and he is going to cause that breastplate of righteousness to shine in such a way that it blinds the enemy.
To paralyze means to bring a system, a place, or an organization to a standstill by causing disruption or chaos. The enemy wants to stop the work of God. He would like to stop this house from ever getting off the ground, but I say in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, We will have what God says we will have. We are who he says we are. We will manifest him in the earth on earth as it is in heaven. He will have his model in the earth. Jesus, come and get your reward.
The Lord said, The hand of the Lord is stretched out, pushing back the resistance. We need to take hold of what God has said, and we need to bank the promises of God. We need to be resolved on the Word and not move off of the Word. If it’s written, it’s written. If he’s given you a rhema like Nita brought this morning, hold to the word of God until you see the manifestation of it.
During the 70 Days He said, The enemy wants to bring chaos and pandemonium, but I will have my order. So what did he release in here last week? He said, Miracle City, receive your ordination. Receive your order. Because I will not allow the enemy to paralyze you and bring the work to a standstill. It’s time to move.
Prostrate. Completely overcome or helpless, especially with illness, distress, or exhaustion. Are you sick in your body, in your soul? Are you in distress? Are you exhausted? That word is overwhelmed, overcome, overpowered, brought to one’s knees, crushed, stunned, dazed, speechless, helpless, paralyzed, laid low, impotent, worn out, exhausted, tired out, fatigued, overtired, weary, sapped, spent, drained, played out, debilitated, low, dogged tired, all in, done in, done up, dead, deadbeat, dead tired, dead on one’s feet, ready to drop, fagged out, bushed, bushwacked, worn to a frazzle, burned out, snackered, pooped.
You know what the opposite of all of this is? FRESH. The root word for the Hebraic letter for this month, CHET, is LIFE. So what the Lord wants to do in answer to that thing that has overwhelmed you and worn you out—I just want to drop and release a fresh anointing within you. I want to anoint you with fresh oil. With a fresh outpouring of my Spirit. I’ve got some cool water. I want to bring those living waters out of the well. Rivers.
That word prostrate—reduced to extreme physical weakness.
This is your opportunity. Some of you have said, Oh my God, that is me. The Gate is open. The Way is made. Come on. Stand up on your feet. Take up your bedroll and walk.
The word torpefy. This was the last one. Never heard of this word before. It means to make someone or something numb, paralyzed, lifeless. Do you have a numb place in your life, in your heart, in your mind, will, and emotions? Where do you feel lifeless? The antonym is strengthened, reinforced.
I know that when I bring the word to you, I know that I’ve heard the Lord. I trust the Lord that much. He said since the 5th, Trust. Trust in the Lord will all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Asah. It’s time to create. I want to work with you. He is looking for a co-laborer and a co-creator. And you are going to create by the words that come out of your mouth.
But if you are lifeless, if you are exhausted, if you are unresolved, if you are dealing with any of these things that have caused lameness, you’re not going to be able to engage your heart and your mouth to be able to decree and declare and come up out of it unless someone does it for you.
But I hear the Lord saying, Others have done it for you long enough. It’s time for you to be made whole. Get up on your feet and walk the walk and talk the talk. And don’t go bowing down and making any golden calves. Keep your focus and your fix on him because we’re going in to possess the promise. Don’t get sidetracked. Don’t be diverted.
And know that my power has come within you and upon you now. You’re coming through the Way Gate, and we’re doing this thing. And instead of being a dire straits season, it’s going to be a straight shot in, because the Lord our God has run up the middle and he’s made a way for us.
Power came out of my inmost being, my Holy Ghost gut place, so I can tell you some issues just got taken care of.
So he says, How long will you waver? Let’s hold fast. And you’re just going to have to weigh this where it is because I’ve heard this for the last few days, and I finally looked it up today. I heard the Lord say, Aaron is here to help you. What does that mean? Aaron is part of the great cloud of witnesses. Aaron has gone before us. We can look at the life of Aaron and we can see his mistakes and we can also see his victory.
I studied about Aaron and I’m going to be teaching on the right of the firstborn, which is really Jesus. And you’re going to come in a new authority that you have not known. We can look at Aaron as a leader. We can look at the mistake of the golden calf and many times we only see that; but we need to know how powerful Aaron was, and where he walked, and where he lived.
He made a grave mistake and it costed Israel many lives. Instead of holding the fort, and when the voices began to raise and say, This Moses is not coming back, give us something to worship. Instead of saying, No, it’s not happening; he gave in and just did what they wanted—out of fear.
So the Lord is saying to you and me, Dads, Moms, don’t you cave into fear. Leaders, business owners, wherever you are in authority, this is not a time to cave into fear and go along with the crowd. Stand strong and you’ll see the salvation of the Lord in the land of the living.
The Lord is ready to bring forth his might, his strength, his excellency of dignity and his excellency of power in your life. As we are standing in this month and this day celebrating first fruits, we know that Reuben was the firstborn of Jacob, and the prophecy released over his life because he defiled his father’s bed and slept with his father’s concubine, is that he would be as unstable as water. You shall not excel.
He started out, Reuben, my firstborn, first fruit, my might, the beginning of my strength, the excellency of my dignity, the excellency of my power, but you are unstable as water and you will not excel.
The Lord is coming to you and me and instability, wavering, produces lameness. And it shuts you down. But we have the rights of the firstborn. And his name is Jesus Christ. And he’s saying, Will you receive the birthright and your destiny. Will you rise up in my might, my strength, the excellency of my dignity, the excellency of my power, and let me bring you into the inheritance that I’ve already purchased for you?
Brave the storm. Harness the storm. Ride it like the eagle. I ride on the storm. It’s time. Do not look to men. Look to Me.
Daniel 9:4. O Master, great and august God. You never waver in your covenant commitment, never give up on those who love you and do what you say.
I want you to know there is no shadow of turning in our God and he does not waver in his covenant commitment.
Philippians 4. Don’t waver. Stay on track, steady in God.
This is the last portion of instruction. The Lord said it’s time to inundate yourself with the Word of God. Inundate means flooded. It comes from a Latin word meaning in, into, upon, to flow, away. It’s overflow. It’s to be flooded, to flood, cover or overspread with water, to overwhelm. A deluge, engulf, overrun, submerge, swamp, dump.
He wants to immerse you in His Word. And it’s only in the Word that you’re going to go the way that he’s marked out for you. The Resolve will rise up in you because it will settle it.
He is going to rope-a-dope our enemies. He said, It’s distinction time. Man made versus God made. We’re going to find out what’s God made because it’s going to stand.
Trailers are here. This is the filmstrip month. Trailers are here. Prophetic preview. It’s an excerpt or a series of excerpts from a movie or program used to advise and advance a preview. A short promotional film composed of clips showing highlights of a movie due for release in the near future.
The Lord is going to open up your understanding. Your prophetic revelation is upon you. This is a time to receive vision from the Lord to look and look again. How many of you have been to the movies and you’ve seen a trailer of a coming film and you’re like, I want to see that? Do you know there are trailers throughout the Word of God? He said, In the last days I will pour out my Spirit. That was a trailer for where we are right now.
In the last days there will be signs in the heavens and on the earth. That was a trailer. In the last days the mountain of the Lord will rise above all the other mountains, and the mountain of the Lord will be established. And deliverers will go out from the mountain of the Lord. Hei. That’s a trailer. Hey, I want to see that. Ho, I’m getting the power. I’m going to see it. I’m seeing it.
So in this season of where he wants to open up vision to you, a time to guard your heart, and a time to guard your eyes, and he’s saying, Come and stand. And look to see what I’m going to say to you. And write the vision and make it plain. Because this is different from another season. No sooner is it said than I‘m manifesting it on earth as it is in heaven.
This is not a day of delay. The word is not going to be lame. And the word is going to work. And the word is going to work in you, and you’re going to work the word. And we’re going to ‘asah,’ because we’re going to co-labor, and we’re going to come through it together. You’re going to have a see in the heavenly realm and you’re going to begin to order your day by what you say, and shift nations, and cities, and states and your territories, and your tents and treasuries. Oh oh oh.
What can we create today, Lord? What do you want to bring on earth as it is in heaven? What do you want to uproot and tear down and destroy and overthrow? What do you want to build and plant? See, if you move in the rights of the firstborn, you’re a builder. You have authority. You have provision. Because the firstborn gets a double portion. Glory!
Trailers are here. Prophetic previews. When you see it and it’s personal, and you receive it, and you decree it and declare it, it establishes it. The Lord said to me, It behooves me to give you the provision. It behooves me to give you the money. You must set Miracle City in my order to function. How many of you know there are things that can’t be developed unless you have the means?
So when the Lord says, It behooves me. That’s not something I would just say. To behoove. It is a duty or responsibility for someone to do. It is appropriate or suitable or it benefits. So if he says, It behooves me to give you the provision for the vision, he’s saying, It’s going to benefit Me. It’s for My benefit that I do this for you.
It’s for his benefit that he fulfills your birthright and your destiny. But this is the thing. He won’t make you do it. Just do that thing. Just come in such a way that you make them want to do that thing. Make me want to do the thing. You know what he said? I don’t operate that way. I’ll draw you. I’ll woo you. But ultimately you have to make a choice. Make the choice.
So what am I going to do with these words? And what are you going to do with these words? See, I’ve got my book. And I’ve got my book. And I’ve got my other book. And I’ve got three books that will go with me for a couple of months, because you know what are in these books? They’re promises. I take the word where I go so I can wake up and begin to decree it and declare it.
It’s your season. It’s your time to produce. It’s time for manifestation. And the Lord says, Your trailers are here. The threshold is here. I’ve brought you into this place. And once you enter in, there’s no turning back. When you enter into the strait, you won’t be going back.
Father, I thank you for night time, seed time, harvest. Lord, that we’re in a harvest year. And so right now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and by the power of Holy Spirit, Father, as the word has gone forth in this place today and it’s even going beyond this place, I decree and declare that the word is not chained. That it accomplishes in every heart and in every life what it is sent to do.
I take authority over a spirit of blindness. I take authority over a spirit of infirmity of the soul and the physical body. Anything that has caused lameness in our lives as these words have been defined, Father God, where it’s gone in hearts and lives and families, Lord, to the very root, to the very root, to the very root, let it be uprooted, torn down, destroyed, and completely overthrown, in and through your name, Jesus.
It’s in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Rulers and elders of the people, if we are being called to give an account to an act of kindness shown to a cripple, know this, that it is in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth whom you crucified, but God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you completely healed.
Jesus goes into Solomon’s Colonnade. There is a man sitting by the waters. He had been there 38 years. Jesus said, Do you want to be healed? And the man began, Every time the angel comes down and stirs the waters, others push in ahead of me. Others go before me. It can’t get down to the water. Hei Hei Hei. Jesus said, Hahaha. Take up your bedroll and walk.
The power of Almighty God is in your house. You’re not trying to get the power outside. It’s in believers. The power to walk is within you. The power to run is within you. The power to create by the words of your mouth is within you. The anointing and the authority and the ability of Jesus is within you. I put a demand on what is stored in your spirit man. Come alive. Come alive. Come alive. Rise up. Rise up. Rise up. Stand up on your feet. Stand up on your feet. Stand up on your feet. Stand up on our feet. Stand up (5 times). Stand up on your feet. The Way Gate goes out.
🎶You have never failed me yet. The promise still stands. Great is your faithfulness. I’m still in your hands. This is my confidence. You’ve never failed me yet.
I’ve seen you move the mountains. I believe I’ll see you do it again. You made a way where there was no way. I believe I’ll see you do it again.
Your promise still stands. Great is your faithfulness.
Betty. No more wavering. No more doubt and unbelief. I know, I know… Fear out. Fear out. Destiny destroyers and destiny devourers gotta go go go right now in Jesus name. Mind binding spirits out. Chaos and confusion go out in Jesus name.
🎶By your blood we overcome.
Betty. Spirit of the Sovereign Lord, in this place. Corporate anointing. Set us free. Set us free. Freedom Freedom. Hei Hei Hei. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
🎶I’m free to dance and sing. I’m free to shout it out. I’m free to worship you. We’re gonna worship you.
Betty. Thank you. He who has been set free is free indeed. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Freedom in the house. Praise God. Hei Hei.
🎶Jump in the river. Dance in the river. Everybody.
Betty. Freedom to move. Freedom to be. Freedom to come. Freedom to walk. Freedom to soar on the high places. Freedom. Freedom. Freedom in Christ Jesus.
Father, I thank you for healing in the house. I thank you for miracles. I thank you Lord God this is just the beginning. Fresh and New.
Lord God, we decree and declare no more holdouts. No more holdouts. No more hope deferred. Lord, we thank you for the manifestation of your word on earth as it is in heaven. We thank you that you’ve brought healing to the house, those who are watching or will watch, on earth as it is in heaven, Be now made whole, in Jesus mighty name. Amen and Amen. Praise God.
