8/21/19 Miracle City Global
Kimble Love. Welcome to Miracle City. We’re glad to see you here tonight. Seems like every Wednesday night it’s raining. I pray that rain will come on inside here today. He’s good about raining on us and pouring out his glory, and showing himself mighty. And that’s what we’re here tonight for, to experience the power of his presence, to worship him in spirit and in truth, and to get revelation from heaven. He pours out his grace and mercy and it’s through that grace and mercy we draw our strength.
Father, we’re gathered here tonight to worship you and honor you. We come in the name of Jesus before you. We thank you for the cross and his blood that was shed. We thank you Lord that you have saved us, healed us, delivered us, and set us free. And we are free to worship you tonight. So Lord we just ask that you come and have your way, that you show yourself mighty.
Father, bring forth miraculous signs and wonders tonight. Father, heal bodies, open eyes, unstop ears. May we walk in the fullness of your Word and your promise. We say we believe and receive everything that you have for us. We honor you tonight in Jesus name. Amen and Amen. Let enter into worship.
🎶I lift my sails to the sky. I’m gonna catch the wind. Like an eagle whose home is the sky. Gonna catch the wind. Your faithfulness will never let me down. I’m confident I’ll see your goodness now. I can feel the wind stirring, lifting me up high. I was born into freedom. I was made to fly.
Blow mighty breath of God. Come and blow in this place. There’s a stirring in the Spirit. Like a rushing river, like a raging storm, you break down my heart. When the quiet comes, I can feel your love. I’m listening. Every cell in me must respond to the rhythm of your heart, to the hope within your arms.
Come and wash us with your Spirit, living water. Here I am God. Have your way. Do what you want to do in me. I will open my mouth. I will let you play me. I will let you sing through me. Sing through me.
Anna Love. I think it’s funny how the Lord works things together sometimes. You read something or you study something out and it’s good, but then you have revelation on it later, and it’s funny how it all fits together. I want to declare Psalm 81 over us tonight. I declared it over each of us this morning as I was praying for the house.
Psalm 81. I sing praises to God our strength. Sing to the God of Jacob. Sing, beat the tambourine. Play the sweet lyre and the harp. Blow the ram’s horn on the new moon and again on the full moon to call a festival. For this is required by the decrees of Israel, the regulation of the God of Jacob. He made the law for Israel when he attacked Egypt to set us free.
I heard an unknown voice say, Now I will take the load from your shoulders. I will free your hands from their heavy task. You cry to me in trouble and I saved you. I answered out of the thundercloud and tested your faith when there was no water in Meribah. Listen to me, oh my people, while I give you a stern warning.
Oh Israel, if only you would listen to me. You must never have a foreign god. You must not bow down before false gods. For it was I, the Lord your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it with good things.
And it goes on and talks about how Israel didn’t listen. But I believe the Lord is getting our attention tonight. And he’s saying those heavy things, those heavy loads, he’s lifting them off, and he’s giving us as ear to hear in this season for vision. And maybe in the past where we couldn’t hear certain things, and we missed it, and later we knew we missed it, the Lord is saying it’s come and come again.
You’re going to be able to listen and you’re going to be able to do it this time. You’re not going to miss your opportunity because you’re going to have ears to hear and eyes to see. So we say, Lord, do what you want to do in us, whatever you want to do in us, in Jesus name. We declare it so.
🎶I will open my mouth. I will let you play me, sing through me.
Not by might. Not by power. But by your Spirit, Lord. We lift up your name Yahweh.
Dwell in the midst of us. Come and have your way.
I find peace. I find rest in your presence, in the glory. Dwell in the midst of us. Dwell in us Lord.
Heaven is stirring now. The angels, they are moving. Let every word we speak come from your mouth, oh Lord, that the angels, they may run. Run on our praises.
I hear the sound of freedom ringing out. Chains are falling to the ground. Things are turning around. We welcome you here to have your way. We believe you’ll do what you said. I believe you God.
There’s another in the fire, standing next to me. Jesus. Oh I believe your promise is true. You always find me. No more hiding. I will come out of the baggage, out of the bondage. I will run. It’s a new season. We declare it so. I believe. Here we are God, to do your will, what is written about us in your scroll. We step in.
We go from glory to glory to glory. We’re forever changed. We’ll never be the same. The weapons of my warfare they are mighty. Strongholds are coming down. We lift our banner high. We lift up the name of Jesus. Worthy worthy worthy Lord God Almighty.
Kimble Love. The Lord, he is mighty, mighty in battle. He is a conqueror and there’s nothing we face in our life that he can’t cause us to overcome if we’ll only believe. Father, we thank you tonight for your presence in this house. I declare over this body that we are a people that believe. We believe that you are God our Father, the Creator of heaven and earth.
We believe that you sent your one and only Son, Jesus, into the earth to redeem us and deliver us from the curse of the law. We believe we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We believe that you have called us and made us more than conquerors. Lord, we bless you tonight. And we declare that we believe. We believe. We believe that your kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven. We bless you Lord. Amen and Amen.
It’s so good to come together and dwell together with brothers and sisters in the power and presence of God. Did anyone see or hear anything from the Lord during worship?
Rosemary Byrd. I saw a rain shower of golden stars of God’s glory flowing in the house tonight.
Kimberley Davis. I saw the heavenly beings and the elders casting down their crowns, angels and all the motion and gestures of heaven was in our midst, that sense of moving with heaven flowing in this house.
Wanda Sumrall. I felt the refreshing wind of the Spirit blowing in on us.
Nancy Pitts. I saw a brand new butterfly take flight. It was huge.
Kimble. New life. New birth. Catch the wind.
Lily Grace Bass. Painted the Faith River of God that never ends. You’ve got to go through the mud to get to the river.
Kimble. Sometimes you’ve got to go through it to get to it.
Laurie Myrick. As the praise was glorious and loud it was like I was a boat out on the sea. And I thought of the story when they got afraid, and Jesus was asleep in the bow of the boat. And I just knew with a constant peace within me that he was riding inside my vessel, and if I would just keep going, the wind was blowing.
And I thought about the song, Sailing takes me to where I want to be. Then it was like I came out of the storm and there was a calm, like a sea of glass and the sail was full. And it was like the wind was just blowing.
Kimble Love. Jesus is in your vessel. He’s within each one of us. The fullness of his power and glory, his majesty, his anointing, is within us. We’ve just got to believe it. You’ve got to believe it. In this life we live in we’ve got fact and circumstances; but then you’ve got the Word of God. And the Word of God trumps the fact and circumstances that you see in this world. The only way it can trump it is, you’ve got to believe it. You’ve got to believe it.
Kevin Long. You’ve got to appropriate it.
Kimble. You’ve got to appropriate it. To appropriate something you’ve got to go after it and take hold of it. You’ve got to made provision for it. You’ve got to plan and prepare. It’s good to wait on the Lord. We’ve got to wait on the Lord. Through scripture people were given direct commands to wait.
Samuel told Saul to wait and not do anything until he got back. Saul got tired of waiting and got his cart before his horse. It eventually cost him his kingdom. But we’ve got to stand. We’ve got to hear and be directed. And believe that God is going to speak to us and show us what to do and when to do it.
God will give us words. I get a word from the Lord and I want it to happen right now. I want it tomorrow. Let’s go. I’m ready. Let’s run. And sometimes his words are for now, for that moment. But other times, they’re not. Sometimes they’re far off. We’ve got to condition ourselves and appropriate the Word of God and trust him, and believe that he’s going to do it when he gets ready to do it. Because God is good all the time. And all the time, God is good. But we just have to believe.
Anna and I discussed who would bring the word tonight, and this morning I said, I’m bringing the word tonight. I’m driving to Hattiesburg, and I told the Lord I wanted him to tell me what he wanted to share. And all day I kept hearing Holy Spirit say, Only Believe. Only Believe. Only Believe.
I went to the New Testament and the words of Jesus. He was always telling us to believe.
Matthew 18:1-6. At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Who then is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And he called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said, I tell you the truth. Unless you change and become like little children, you’ll never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this little child will become the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus was making an example here and asked this child to come forth. We’ve all heard of childlike faith. When I was a child I could believe anything. Whatever Mom or Dad told me growing up, I believed it. And Jesus is saying to his disciples, you must have faith as a child. You must have a belief system like a little child so that you’ll be able to enter into the kingdom. A little child and their belief system is innocent. They haven’t experienced a lot of garbage.
You can tell a child anything and he’ll believe it. But Jesus was making that example. We’ve got to become like these little children. I remember being little and watching Superman on tv. I believed I could fly. I would pretend. I know some of you did, too. We believed as a little child.
:5 Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
The Lord is calling us to come to a place again of innocence, taking him at his word, not allowing past experience, present experiences, or future experience, to dictate our belief system.
A lot of times we are on-the-job training in life. We’ve done things in our past we know we’re not going to do again. Like when you’re cooking in the kitchen with a cast iron skillet on the burner. You don’t grab the handle without a pot holder. Maybe once or twice, but you’re going to learn. Your belief system is going to become: I believe if I grab that handle without a pot holder, it’s going to give me 2nd and 3rd degree burns. You’re not going to do it.
Did any of you have a problem believing that chair would hold you up tonight when you sat down? You didn’t have to think about it. That’s the way God wants us to believe. That it’s just a knowing. It’s a trusting. It’s a reassurance. Or an assurance that he’s going to do what he said he’s going to do. Only believe.
Matthew 9:27-30. As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
Notice these blind men didn’t say, Jesus, give us sight. Jesus, open our eyes. They said, Have mercy on us, Son of David. They knew who Jesus was. They had heard of the things Jesus did. And they knew when Jesus came around, miracles happened. These two blind men wanted their sight, to be able to see. It doesn’t say, but they probably needed more than just their physical sight.
So they called out to Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on us. They were saying, Here we are. Do whatever you do. We want it. They weren’t limiting him to just their sight. They wanted the full meal deal. They wanted everything that Jesus had to offer them. So Jesus simply asked them, Do you believe that I’m able to do this?
Ask yourself that question. Is my belief system in God so strong that I truly trust and I’m assured that he’s going to do what he says he’s going to do? And they said.
“Yes, Lord,” they replied. They believed without a shadow of doubt. Without any wavering. They knew that they knew that they knew that this Jesus, the one they had heard about, the one all the buzz was about, Yes, you can do this.
Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you;” and their sight was restored.
Wow. According to your faith. Their faith was, they believed that Jesus could do what they desired for him to do. Without any doubt. Without any wavering. They knew that they knew they were at their appointed time and they were going to receive their miracle. It was from their believing faith.
Matthew 21:21-22. Jesus replied, I tell you the truth. If you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, Go throw yourself into the sea; and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
I’ve read that scripture for years and years and stood on it. And I’ve prayed believing for things, and I’m still believing and I’m still standing. Because God is not a bellhop. He not an order taker. He is not my servant. But I’m his. The Word says he knows the desires of our hearts, and he gives us the desires of our hearts. But his ways are higher than our ways. His thinking is beyond our thinking.
He is never late and he’s never short. He always does what he says he’s going to do according to his terms. As we say and only believe, then we’ve got to hand it to him for his appointed times, for his seasons. Sometimes that’s hard. Sometimes we wonder why. We do live in a fallen world. There’s a lot of negativity and there are a lot of dark and evil things going on in this world.
But just as God has created us in his image, he’s given us free will choice. All of mankind, humankind, has the ability to choose and to make choices. So we can make bad choices and go after things of the world; or we can stand our ground and believe by faith, trusting the Lord to see us through, no matter what goes on around us. We face circumstances. We go through times of tribulation and temptations.
But I declare that greater is the one that’s in us than the one that’s in the world. We have to train our brain. We need to train our heart. We need to train our spirit to get into the same flow, that river where God is flowing in, and remain in that. Get out of the mud and get in the river, that river that never ends, that river that always flowing, always refreshing. That river that keeps you believing.
Because God is good all the time. His mercies are new every morning. And he is steadfast. That means he keeps on keeping on. So therefore, we need to keep on keeping on trusting in him no matter what we see, what we think, or imagine. But stand on the truth of his word and what he says.
Mark 1:14-15. After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee proclaiming the good news of God. The time has come, he said. The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news.
The kingdom of God has come hear. So it’s time to repent and believe the good news. What’s the good news? What Jesus just said. The kingdom of God has come hear. He was talking about himself. Jesus said, I am the kingdom of God come to earth in the flesh, taking on your form, and I’m here telling you, Only Believe. Turn from your wicked ways. Turn from the darkness and turn to me. I’m the light/life. Believe on me and you’re going to see the goodness of God in the land of the living. Repent and Believe.
Mark 5:35-36. While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue ruler. They said, You’re daughter is dead. Why bother the teacher anymore? Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, Don’t be afraid. Just Believe. Don’t let your fear interfere with what your belief system is saying. He came to seek out Jesus because he had heard, he knew. The good news had traveled and preceded Jesus in the town. And this man had a problem. He had an issue.
I’m sure he heard the stories, about how when Jesus came to town, sickness left. Sick people got up. Lame people walked. Even dead people got up and rose again. So this means I’ve got to get to Jesus. I’m coming. I’m going to do whatever I can do to get to this Jesus, this Son of God, this miracle worker, this faith healer, this deliverer. Whatever it takes, because my daughter is sick. And I love her. I have a need. And she’s young. She was twelve years old. But the word came, Don’t bother Jesus. It’s too late. It’s over with. Your daughter is dead. So leave Jesus alone. There’s nothing he can do.
Jesus supersedes the news report. Jesus comes on the scene and changes the news. He said to Jairus, Don’t be afraid. Don’t fear. Don’t doubt. Only believe. Just believe. You know the story. Jesus went on to his house. Even when he got there they told him he was too late. She’s gone. There was weeping and wailing, tearing their clothes and playing the funeral dirge. He told them to get out. She’s not dead. She’s only sleeping. Only believe. He spoke the word and Life, Life, Life.
Mark 11:22-24. Have faith in God, Jesus answered, I tell you the truth, If anyone says to the mountain, Go throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
That’s a big undertaking. Anyone ever gone out west and tried this? In the natural that’s impossible. But in the spirit, backed by the Holy Ghost, and Jesus Christ, and Father God himself, there’s nothing they’re not able to do. But he’s using this example in order to stretch a believing ability. To have enough faith and understanding and tenacity and assurance that if we speak to that mountain, it’s going to move.
That’s how strong he wants our belief system to be in him. If I speak to that mountain. In simpler terms, if I speak to this habitual problem that keeps hacking and nagging at me for years and years, believing in the name of Jesus, then it’s got to relent. It’s got to subside. It’s got to go in Jesus name.
The enemy will continue to bother you as long as you’ll let him. There comes a time when you have to stand up on your own two feet in the name of Jesus believing that your mouth has the power to get rid of anything that is attacking you. And not just your mouth, but your entire being. It’s got to go.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you receive it and it will be yours. Keep praying. Keep standing. Keep believing. Don’t be locking into one way of thinking how it ought to be, but submit yourself to the lordship of Jesus, Father God, and say, Lord, I’m praying for your will to be done.
How many pray, Your will be done in this, but if you’ll do this; or if you would do it like this? I can really help you out here because… No. When you pray believing that means you take your hands off of it. And it’s all God. Not you. Quit trying to control. Quit trying to suppress. Quit trying to hold onto things. Give it to him and believe that he’s fully able to take care of it. He doesn’t need your help. He just wants your obedience. He wants you to live by faith and not by sight. He wants you to live believing and not being afraid.
How many of you like that new song tonight? We’re just going to send fear to hell. That’s where it came from. So that’s where it needs to go. Not on me. Not on you. Not in this house.
Mark 16:15-18. Jesus said to them, Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. But whoever does not believe will be condemned.
It’s our belief in the good news of the kingdom of God. It’s our belief that Jesus came in the flesh, gave his life, shed his blood for our redemption, brought us back to right relationship with God, saved us, healed us, delivered us, and that we can walk in the fullness of sonship now because of what Jesus has done. When we receive that, and we begin to believe that, and walk in that anointing, and understand the fullness of all that he’s done for us, then go to that next verse.
And these signs will accompany those who believe. It doesn’t say the apostle, or the preacher, or the evangelist, the teacher or the pastor. It says all of those who believe.
In the name of Jesus they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and if they will drink deadly poison it will not hurt them at all. They will place their hands on sick people and they will get well.
That’s what the Word says. I’m not advocating picking up snakes with your hands. But if you were ever where that might come forth, believe that God will give you the ability and protection to not be harmed in any form or fashion. Don’t go out and drink deadly poison, but if you unknowingly do, if you believe, God is going to deliver you and save you.
And when you lay hands on the sick, pray believing and the Word says they will be healed. Glory to God. These signs will follow those who believe. I believe.
John 6:26-29. Then they asked him, Jesus, What must we do to do the works God requires? And Jesus answered, The work of God is this, to believe in the one he has sent. To believe in the one whom God has sent. That’s the work of God—to believe. Only believe.
John 12:44-46. Then Jesus cried out, Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. I have come into the world as the light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
Jesus is the light. In Jesus there is no shadow of turning. There is no darkness whatsoever. When we come to Jesus believing in Jesus, darkness cannot remain within us. It has to go. When the light appears, the darkness dissipates.
I can walk in this building at 9 o’clock at night and it’s dark. I can turn one little switch and instantly the darkness is gone. That’s the cool thing about light. Light has power. You flip the light switch, the light comes on. There’s not a darkness switch. Darkness has no power. It only has the power of deception. The only way darkness can have power is if it steals off of your power grid. In Christ there is no darkness. Jesus dispels the darkness. Steal—that’s what the enemy does. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But He’s defeated.
John 20:24-29. Now Thomas, also known as Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
Thomas the doubter. But I can’t really give Thomas a bad rap. How many times have we done that? How many times have we said, Well, I just don’t believe that. I just don’t think that happened. I think you’re puling my leg. I think you’re trying to trick me. I think you’re trying to deceive me. There’s no way that happened. Well, I’ll believe it when I see it. How many have ever said that?
A week later the disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” He saw and then he believed.
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed, but blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
This walk that we walk, and this life that we live in this body by the Spirit, has to live by believing. We’ve got to believe that we’re going to see it. We don’t want to see to believe. We are believing to see it. That’s the way God works. He turns things around. Sometimes upside down. He goes beyond our thinking and understanding and brings things to us, that we can dwell on, that we can seek after, that we can stand on, to know that he is God and he’s got it figured out. We need to quit trying to figure it all out and just believe him because he will take care of everything that concerns us. Only Believe.
As I was thinking on that today, I heard the old chorus. 🎶Only believe. Only believe. All things are possible. Only believe.
That’s what God wants from us. I talked last week about trusting. Trust the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path. You can’t trust somebody unless you believe they’re going to do what they say they’re going to do. I’m here to tell you tonight. I trust the Lord. And I believe he’s going to do everything all right.
Father, I thank you tonight for your word, and for your presence in this house. For the visions you showed those here tonight, of your glory, of your majesty, of your goodness. I thank you for the artwork, for you showing Lily Grace your flowing river that never ends. Father, I thank you that you’re a good good Father.
I just pray tonight that through your word that’s been released in this house and into our hearts and spirits, that you would increase our belief system. Father, that we would cast off all false belief, all fear, all doubt, misunderstanding, miscommunication. But Lord, that we would receive the truth of your word and believe it like it’s going to happen at any moment, with no restrictions.
Lord, we declare tonight that we believe you, and we go forth only believing in Jesus name. Amen and Amen.
God bless you. Go forth in the power of the word of God. Believe on him and you will see his fullness in the midst of your circumstances in Jesus name.
