WORSHIP for REVITALIZATION

WORSHIP for REVITALIZATION

Revitalization is all about Worship – Victory is– Healing is –Freedom is – “It’s ALL about Worship!”

 

 

Scripture Text:

John 4:23

…yet a time is coming and has now come

Phil 4:6-7

Do not be anxious for anything, but in everything

Rm 8:34

Christ Jesus who died – more than that.

Rev 1:17-18

Do not be afraid… I am active… And I hold the keys

Eph 1:18-20

I pray also that the eyes of your may be enlightened…that you may know the hope to which HE        has called you, the riches of HIS glorious inheritance …and HIS incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of HIS mighty strength …when HE raised HIM from the dead.

Rm 8:17

Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of GOD and co-heirs of CHRIST, if indeed we share in HIS suffering in order that we may also share in HIS glory.

James 4:7-8-10

Submit yourselves then to GOD.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to GOD, and HE will come near to you…Humble yourselves before the LORD, and HE will lift you up.

 

 

Praise and Worship of GOD is what we should go to Church to do.  Worship should be a celebration of the living, resurrected, reigning LORD.  If we go to GOD in the spirit of praise and thanksgiving then we will receive grace and revitalization to accomplish the task GOD has called us to undertake. Praise brings HIS inhabitation!

Worship should not be done in a solemn, gloomy spirit, remembering the suffering and death of JESUS.  When we worship, we must remember HE is sovereignty.  Failure to allow the Holy Spirit to break us will make it impossible to receive the blessed promises of GOD.  We must not lose sight of the fact CHRIST has conquered death, hell, and the grave for us.  He now reigns supreme, sitting at the FATHER’S right hand interceding on our behalf.

We should remember HIS suffering and death that rightfully we deserve but, we should not worship them.  We should praise and worship a living, reigning LORD who holds the keys to death, hell, and the grave.  Without the holiness and sovereign power of our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS, the CHRIST, we would all be suffering an eternal death, hell, and the grave.

When we remember he has defeated death, hell, and the grave and now reigns victorious over Satan, it becomes easier to understand the sovereign power JESUS has to give to us for HIS good purpose.  This same power  is ours if we praise, worship, and believe in HIM; the living, reigning, KING of kings and LORD of lords.  We cannot understand this power when we only remember HIS suffering and death on the cross.  We must also remember HIS resurrection and victory over Satan if we wish to live in victory with JESUS.

JESUS now reigns supreme and HE has given all those that believe and trust in HIM the opportunity to live victoriously as joint heirs with HIM   if we come    humbly   submitting   ourselves over completely to HIM.

 

When we truly worship, God begins to break the outer man.  This brokeness must take place- for we cannot grow in the Holy Spirit unless our inner spirit is broken.

 

Life of Prayer “Incredible Journey”

LIFE OF PRAYER “Incredible Journey”

Dear Child of God,

 

I write you this in the name of our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.  I pray the Holy Spirit enable your heart and mind to receive it.  Read it prayerfully!  May your mind be renewed and your life transformed in the manner GOD has set forth and ordained.  AMEN

 

I do not speak of a “Prayer Life” with natural limitations of time and verse.  I speak of a supernatural “Life of Prayer” that has no limitations.  Did not Paul say “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1Thes 5:16)   When you embark on this journey, your life will change in ways you never thought possible.  In an interview with Newsweek magazine, David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk said,

 

“The Life of prayer is a journey with God, as well as toward God.  It is a journey in which prayer becomes, for those who pursue it, as natural as breathing.  As long as you know you are praying, you are not praying properly.  When everything       you do is prayer, the FRUIT is an increase in love, patience and compassion for others, leaving behind the unmistakable taste of HOLINESS.”

 

            Child of GOD, be aware when we embark on this “Incredible Journey” with God, growing ever closer and more intimate with HIM, you can rest assured Satan will not like it.  Satan will try his best to impede our prayers and disrupt our “life of Prayer”.  He knows the closer we come to GOD, the stronger our faith becomes.  When our faith is strong and our walk is close, the harder we work for GOD.  The harder we work for GOD, the more effective we are as Christians.  The more effective we are as Christians, The larger the “Body of Christ” grows.  The larger the “Body of Christ” grows, the stronger it becomes and the closer Satan and all his evil host come to their ETERNAL DOOM.

 

Satan will hate our journey of prayer.  He will do his best to destroy our witness for Christ and stop our progress.  But, HALLELJUH!  Praise GOD in HEAVEN!  The very same journey of prayer will usher us into VICTORY!

 

WORD POWER:

Jr. 33:3 – “Call to me and I will answer and tell you great and un-searchable things you do not know.”

Is. 65:24 – “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.

John 14:13 – “… and I will do whatever you ask in my name…”

Mat. 21:22 – “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

John 14:14 –  “You may ask me for anything in my name and I will do it.”

Mat. 18:19 – “Again I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for it will be done for you by my FATHER in Heaven.”

 

More kneeling before God means less kneeling to the pressures of the world.  PRAYER BY FAITH is the strongest weapon we can utilize in the fight we have on earth against powers and principalities.

 

“For this reason I kneel before the FATHER…” (Eph. 3:14)

 

When we pursue a “LIFE OF PRAYER” not just a “prayer life,” prayer will become as natural as breathing.  This “Incredible Journey” is filled with the power and blessings of GOD.  It will give all who pursue it “ever-present” victory.

Year of Transference

God wants you to know that a season of “Transference” is coming onto HIS Kingdom. He says that “Blessings” of Heaven have been stored up and waiting to be released into the church. He told me that 2013 will be a year of “Heavenly Transference”.
We need to prepare ourselves for what is about to take place. Power is going to be transferred to the powerless! Healing is going to be transferred to the sick! Prosperity is going to be transferred to the poor and ABUNDANCE is going to be transferred to those that have been living in lack.
God says we need to press in and wait with great “EXPECTATION”! Like the Day of Pentecost, God is going to send His SPIRIT once again to us as a MIGHTY rushing wind!  Be gathered together in ONE ACCORD says the LORD and prepared your selves for a fresh anointing and a RE-empowering of my Spirit.

 

Satan “thought” he had defeated Jesus. Jesus was beaten, battered & bruised. He was so abused he was no longer recognizable by many accounts. Satan really believed he had won. But, Jesus descended into the bowels of Hell and took the keys of death, hell & the grave away from him.

 

I think we face a similar time today. The world has been beaten, battered & bruised. Our nation (a nation that once honored God and was founded on HIS principles & precepts, a nation that was once “BLESSED of GOD”), appears to be defeated. It appears to be in the throes of death. Satan “thinks” he has won. He thinks he has defeated the last remnant of Christ on Earth.

BUT!!!!

I submit to you the promise of God that says HE will never leave or forsake us.

• We are the remnant of all mighty God!
• We are the “Blessed of the Lord”!!!
• We are the King’s kids!
• We are heirs to the promise and co-heirs with Christ.
• We are “partakers in the “Blood Covenant”.

The problem is that we have forgotten the promise & provision of our “Blood Covenant”. We have believed the lie of Jezebel. We have yielded ourselves to FEAR and forgotten our “PLACE” in the Kingdom.

I believe that it’s time for the remnant of Israel, the seed of Abraham to rise up. It’s time to REJOICE!!! I say REJOICE!!!! The KING of Glory is come among us!

I, the Lord of hosts say to you and ALL of the partakers in the “Covenant of BLOOD” to rise up and reclaim your place in the Kingdom. Reclaim your country! Reclaim the promise!

Have I not promised; “everywhere you set your foot is yours for an inheritance of the LORD!”

The Lord would say to HIS people ARISE!!!! My Spirit is upon you! My GLORY is about to SHINE on you once again! I, the Lord say to you-
• MOVE in me and receive your inheritance!
• Move in me and receive the blessing and PROMISE I have prepared for you.
• Move in me and receive your HEALING.
• Move in me and receive your deliverance!
• Move in me and receive your Salvation!

Know that I am with you ALWAYS! My promises are always yea and AMEN! Begin to press in and my GLORY will descend.
• I will BLESS!
• I will RESTORE!
• I will DELIVER!
• I will EMPOWER!

I say to you my children, ARISE and experience the GLORY I am about to reveal.

Yea and AMEN says the LORD!

New version of the Ant and Grasshopper

A new, modern version of “The Ant and the Grasshopper” is now making the rounds. To draw a comparison, here is the:

OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs, dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

THE MORAL OF THE OLD STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

NOW LOOK AT THE MODERN VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs, dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving. CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green”. Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the SEIU group chanting and marching with placards. Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake, while he damns the ant. President Obama condems the ant and blames President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Rachel Maddow that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper and call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share. Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it. The ant has disappeared into the snow, never to be seen again. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood. The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2012.

Help us serve JESUS.
