Four Levels of Healing By Todd Bentley   Leave a comment

Four Levels of Healing By Todd Bentley

The Faith Realm

1. The Word of Faith
Preaching from Bible who heard the Word, believed the Word, and confessed the Word

Anybody who teaches healing will have healing show up, even if that person does not have a gift of healing.
2. The Prayer of Faith
If you can pray in faith that God will do what God said He would do, God will do it-not because you have a gift of healing and miracle and you are an anointed vessel, but because healing is in the prayer of faith. The healing revivals of the 40’s and 50’s mostly demonstrated the prayer of faith. You received a prayer card when you completed a teaching on healing and on faith. And when they felt you were ready, they’d position you in the healing line If you are sick, the prayer of faith can operate on my faith or on yours.

The Sovereign Realm

The sovereign realm only works if the minister has the word of knowledge and the anointing is present. If there is no healing anointing or word of knowledge or angel or dream, then there is no healing. when the sovereign power of the spirit moves into a meeting, people can even be healed without any prayer of faith.
3. The Word of Knowledge

The word of knowledge isn’t of the faith realm; it’s of the sovereign realm. It’s not about how much faith someone has. It doesn’t take faith. It doesn’t even take faith on my part. Often before I even come into a healing meeting, I will wait one to three hours in a quiet listening, contemplative prayer with paper beside my bed and I’ll say “Father, take me into the service.” And I’ll visit the meeting hours before it even begins and see all of the miracles. At the start of the meeting, I’ll say, “I have fifteen word of knowledge tonight. Here they are.” And those fifteen things happen because what I saw was ordained in heaven. It doesn’t matter about your faith, or my faith, it’s about the vision. It’s about what the Father is doing. You see, it’s sovereign. It’s the ministry of Jesus; He only does the things He sees the Father do (John 5:19).
As I speak what God has shown me, people are healed because I am synchronizing heaven and earth. When you declare it, those miracles happen, even if the person receiving is an unbeliever. Why? Because you saw it in heaven and because the vision is true.

4. The Healing Anointing

The healing anointing is sovereign because it is no longer about how much faith you or I have, it is about how much of God is on a person or how much of God is in a service. Disease and devils flee because of the intensity of the presence of God in the room or on the person praying.
When you operate in the healing anointing, all sickness and disease is healed because of how much of the presence you have on your life-there is no limit; it is about how much God is in the room. It’s not limited by the boundaries of doubt, unbelief, and sin, or whether you are saved, have carried out these five principles, or renounces all your sin, or broken that soul tie. It doesn’t operate within those boundaries.

The Ministry of the Presence of the Lord

Kathryn Kuhlman’s ministry wasn’t about the word of God or faith and healing lines. It was about worship and atmosphere and how much of God was in the auditorium. People would get healed in their seats. In the midst of that presence, she would call out words of knowledge: “Somebody on the right side of the building just has their blind eye open. Stand up. That person there, your neck is getting healed. Somebody is getting out of a wheel chair at the back or the auditorium.”

When asked, she would say something like, “I don’t know how I know these things, but I know when the healings are happening. I just partner with the Holy Ghost and I call out what I know He is doing.” After establishing the healing atmosphere and calling out words, people would come to the platform to give testimony of how God healed them in their seats. The whole meeting was built around how much of God they could get and keep in the room. This type of healing meeting is in contrast to a service where people hear five hours of teaching. Or get a healing card, or where the emphasis in on faith only.

There is Room for All Levels

Most healing ministries today operate clearly within one of the models I have discussed so far. I’m not saying that one is better than another. I think it is best to combine the aspects of faith and sovereignty and to have room for all four levels of healing.

In the church today, people fail to receive healing and fail in the healing ministry because they get locked into a model and a method. We wait for a certain type of healing. “Todd called out ten words of knowledge last night, but he didn’t call me.” People wait in their seats thinking, if it’s God, He’ll tell Todd. So the word of knowledge doesn’t come and I move into preaching, and then people say, “He called out twelve words; I wasn’t one of them; lets go home. That’s it for healing tonight.” What they didn’t realize was that I was going to activate in another level of healing when I finished preaching. I was going to say, “Come down to the altar and I’ll lay hands on all the sick.” See, many are waiting for healing by the word of knowledge and so fail to receive it by the prayer of faith. People begin to prefer one over the other, and if it doesn’t come the way they were expecting, they can fail t receive their healing touch in the way God wanted to give it to them.

On the other hand, those ministering healing can often fail to release healing because they believe that faith is the only way to do healing. They leave no room for the word of knowledge. Everything is sovereign, sovereign, sovereign: “If I don’t hear God and I don’t have a vision or words of knowledge, then that’s it, I don’t do healing.”

When I minister, if I’m not moving in the sovereign realm of the word of knowledge, I just kick back into the faith realm and God meets me by the word of faith and the principle of faith.

I’ve watched other ministries that have prayed the mass prayer and people are healed because of the healing anointing, and yet, there were still many crippled and sick people at the end of the service. So I said, “God, what if at the end of the service-after calling out the word of knowledge and praying the mass prayer- the healing teams went out into the crowd and prayed until one o’clock in the morning?” When we began to operate in all four levels of healing I discovered that far more people were being healed. We must not limit ourselves to one model only! We must seek the Lord in each situation to see which model or models He wants us to use.

In some situations, Jesus healed people by faith. In fact, His healing power was never limited by a person’s own level of faith. He healed the centurion’s servant because of the centurion’s “great faith” (Matt. 8:10) and because he believed (v. 13). In another situation, He healed a paralytic because when his friends brought him to Jesus, the Lord “saw their faith” (Matt.9:1-2) And then there was the time that a seriously ill woman touched Jesus’ garment and she was healed because of her faith (Matt. 9:22). Also, two blind men were healed because of their faith that Jesus could heal them (Matt. 9:27-30). God releases healing in response to faith!

Jesus also healed by the sovereign realm: “And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed by their diseases, as well as those who were tormented by unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch him, for power went out from Him and healed them all” (Luke 6:17-19). In this situation, Jesus isn’t ministering healing by faith, but there is so much of God’s presence there that every person is healed.

There are instances where the power of God is released and there is a corporate atmosphere, and then there are times when God wants us to engage in faith. Or, perhaps there is a time He wants to heal by the Word as it builds faith, or as we receive a word of knowledge.

As a believer called to the healing ministry, the Lord wants you to understand each of these levels of healing, and to learn to minister in each one. God does not just work healing through one method. God does not just work healing in one method. In His wonderful grace, He has provided many ways for people to receive divine healing. His heart is for everyone to be healed. As you begin to grow in the ministry of healing, be sensitive to the Spirit and stretch yourself to operate in (and receive from) all four of these wonderful levels of healing.

This is what the Lord layed on April’s heart last night. She shared it with me and said that I could post it here for all to hear:

Isaiah 34 and 19..share the opportunity to pray about these things. know there will be a fight on your hands but you will not fail; do not question me; trust me; I have you and I have your back..

behind You.. before you..quiet your soul and listen..

the time is near, there is a season it’s becoming quite clear, the nations are rising and I hear the pleas,my people are calling they’re down on their knees,  I’ll not be mistaken in how I approach, the harvesters the laborers the land owners who search..for me, gone is the time when the mocker succeeds, concede he will, bleed he will; greed will kill the will. Stare in my eyes and you’ll see this is truth, I don’t lie nor defy my word. choose me or lose me. I died,now I live. no excuses to give; hear me beckon your heart for I’ll soon depart and declare for your blasphemy I knew you not…now what say you…

Pray for Detroit, Michigan   1 comment

by Sheila Cogan

I was born in the Motor City. My whole family was born there.
My parents met when they were teenagers, a true American love story.
Today my whole family gathers in Detroit for a family reunion, while newspaper Headlines read “Detroit’s Bankruptcy, Get in the Game Washington.”

I know that there is a remnant of believers still in that City praying and believing that God will change things for their good.

Here is what Cindy Jacobs and Chuck Pierce prophesied 4 or 5 years ago.. It is still relevant to the news headlines of today in July 3013.

I agreed with the prayers that the prophetic intercessors put together.

Please read and Agree in prayer with me….

Michigan Root 52 State Prayer Guide

Join us this week in prayer over Michigan’s future. We are so thankful Cindy Jacobs has mobilized the Route 52 initiative. We wanted to partner with her in this for 2010 and believe God is setting up an explosive breakthrough this next week. The nation (from Washington DC) has said, “As Michigan (and Detroit) goes, so goes the nation.” The eyes of the nation have been watching as Michigan economically sank to the bottom and asked, “Will it survive?” Time Magazine moved into a house into Detroit to record the death or resurrection of the city. We believe this is prophetic. There is a new wind blowing, Apostle Barbara Yoder had Chuck Pierce in recently and they both taught on The Seer anointing which is being activated this year. During that time, God pulled out a stinger of death out of our region and God is restoring a prophetic well and voice enabling us to speak into the nation and nations.

Get ready Michigan, you are on the verge of a movement of God.

There was an unholy covenantal root in this region that’s trying to infect this region and the nation, there is a covenantal thing from God that you are re-digging here that is very important to him.

Michigan had great light structures. Lots of freedom outposts but the Lord said: Look deeper. There was a total dark layer of evil that was to be broken through.

So the Lord said to me: Call for help. Call for help into Michigan. There’s a great watchman anointing in Michigan that is to be looking like a miner’s light underneath in the darkness. He showed me Lord Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts, coming in and bringing angelic forces and they were cutting down through and being positioned where the freedom outposts are. A whole new environment was going to be created by them.

And He said: If you will start walking with Me I’ll give you authority in this land to mobilize My troop for the future. I am here to announce to you Michigan has the opportunity to be in 3 years, by let’s say Pentecost, 2011, to be one of the brightest spots in this nation, or else darkness is going to root deeper. The Lord said starting today angels are going to come in to help you in your families.

There has always been a death sting here and now I am freeing this place to be led into its identity for an entire nations sake in the future. That sting tried to keep you from moving in to the new season. I decree through and into Aug 15, there is a healing well [that] will pulled things out of people. You will reanalyze the regions of your region and you will begin to call in those people in a new way to reform my healing grace and plan of fullness over this region.

There is a turning – where death was ruling, life will come in and rule again. I will join this region with other nations. I will give you an inroad in from this prophetic house [Shekinah] to speak into other nations from their region. I will come and cause this nation to understand that there is a prophetic well it can drink of. In this region, I say NOW, let the transformation of the gatherings of this house begin. The Angel of the Lord has come, to now build up and plant what needs to be planted for the future.

PREAMBLE of MICHIGAN’S CONSTITUTION

We the people of the State of Michigan, grateful to Almighty God for the blessing of freedom, and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution.

The name Michigan comes from the Ojibwa word “Mishigama” meaning great lake. Michigan is the 26th state and was formed January 26, 1837. It is knows as the “Wolverine State” and our state motto is, “If you seek a pleasant Peninsula, look around you” Noted leaders include, Henry Ford (by establishing the auto industry, put the world on wheels) and Gerald Ford the 38th President of the United States.

Native American Foundations-Council, Resources and Land Curses.

Throughout Michigan’s history our people have had the ability to gain, speak and mobilize council. Initially it was Native Americans who used the land for this purpose. Sault Ste. Marie was the council grounds between the eastern portion of Canada and the United States. Along with its ability to for gathering councils, Michigan’s land has great resources, is a place of innovation and invention that has influenced the nation and world. Our nation’s first factory was built by the Native Americans in Alpena Michigan. It was mainly a thunderbird god factory. They manufactured and traded icon trinkets from Canada to the western United States and south towards to Florida. This set a precedent for religious spirits being linked with manufacturing, to establish it outside of the presence of the Lord as did Cain.

Michigan is surrounded by key waterways and inland trails which made it a important locations for Natives to council and establish trade from our resources. Eventually First Nations people sought to control those resources through war. Over the course of time, conflicts broke out among the First Nations over the land and resources. This turned Southeast Michigan into a warring, treacherous and murderous territory. Curses were laid upon the people and land to such a degree that we find these curses active today.

French and British Foundations-Military and Government Headquarters

The French and British interest was in land ownership and profiting through resources in the land. Michigan was key because of its waterway access and land trails that proved to be the fastest and most inexpensive way to penetrate the nation (for ownership and profiteering). To gain control of this northern door to our nation, both the French and British established military and government headquarters to give them an advantage in controlling nations and lands around them. Key leaders of both the British and French in the 18-19 century repeated the history of Native Americans through the wrongful shedding of blood (murder), aversion to other cultures, dealing treacherously and deceitfully in trade and in gaining control of the land.

During this era, Detroit earned a place of significance. It became the headquarters or center to the Armed Forces of the nations mentioned above. It was a place from which each nation directed invasions into the Midwest region of the US. By 1805, The Michigan Territory was created. Detroit was designated as the seat of government. Also Detroit was the first city after Washington, DC to pattern itself after the Masonic layout of a city. In 1837, Michigan was admitted to the Union as the 26th state and Detroit served as our first state capitol.

20th Century- Detroit, Ford, Anti-Semitism.

In the 20th century, Michigan became a place of invention and innovation which changed the entire nation. Detroit was the birthplace and leader of car manufacturing (1908) and became the “Motor City” and automotive capitol of the world. In 1941 automobile plants in Detroit area were converted for the production of war materials, helping Michigan become known as the “Arsenal of Democracy.” Warren, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit) was the center for the production of tanks for the Armed Forces.

These efforts above were due to Henry Ford, founder of Ford Automotive. Ford, in US News and World Report, was called the most influential man in the 20th century. His influence reached beyond car manufacturing to become a major force behind and disseminator of anti-Semitic thought and literature in Michigan as well as the US. He funded the publication and dissemination of anti-Semitic materials in 9 languages. His town, Dearborn, Michigan (under Mayor Hubbard’s reign) would not allow Jews or Blacks to live within the city limits. He funded Hitler’s efforts for a season (until Hitler began to invade Poland); influenced the writing of Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf. Ford also became a 33rd degree Mason (not by study but by paying to be one) and strongly backed the Masonic order. Ford’s actions strengthened the foundation for anti-Semitism in this state.

Ford’s actions were treacherous for Jews and Blacks, murderous (in the way that he funded and agreed with the killing of Jews), anti-Semitic, and deceitful (Dearborn headquarters endorsed Ford Germany supplying Hitler during the war.) It is important to note that Ford’s grandson has begun to undo what Ford did by funding such things as the Holocaust Museum in Southfield MI.

Other Items of Significance

PRAYER & PROCLAMATIONS FOR THE 7 MOUNTAINS

Arts &Entertainment Mountain

Entertainment for Michigan includes much in the way of recreation. Michigan’s land and water provides abundant choices for recreation. It’s beautiful shoreline, beaches, sand dunes, pristine lakes and rivers for boating and fishing, and acres of northern woods make it a popular vacation spot for many people. Surrounded by four Great Lakes, Michigan has the longest fresh water shoreline in the world.

Another way Michigan is developing in the arts & entertainment mountain is through movie production. Since a 2008 tax credit for moviemaking became law in Michigan, some major film and television productions have sought to set up in the Detroit area. That has served to create buzz among Hollywood producers and directors that Michigan is a great place to shoot a movie. The most notable of those is Clint Eastwood, who abruptly moved his production of 2008’s Gran Torino from Minneapolis to suburban Detroit. Ken Droz of the Michigan Film Office and Chris Baum of Film Detroit both say Michigan, and particularly Detroit, offers producers everything they need to make a movie efficiently and cost effectively.

Arts & Entertainment Prayer Points:

Call for full restoration of creativity in Michigan to be released. Declare that God be glorified in the arts here in this state and that artists will recognize Him and give Him His rightful place as King of all Creation. Pray that the creative spirit of God be loosed over all of Michigan (younger and older generations) and a spirit of excellence be coupled to it. We desire that godly creative craftsmen arise and display the splendor of the Lord through all their works.

SATURDAY: Family Mountain

The divorce rate in the state of Michigan is the same as the national average, one-half of all marriages. Michigan’s troubling economic climate has caused an unprecedented number of families to seek help putting food on their tables or paying their bills. Personal income growth from 2001 – 2003 was the slowest since the Great Depression.

Detroit statistically and prophetically has been called, a “fatherless and prodigal city”. Chuck Pierce recently prophesied that the prodigals will come home.

1. Michigan, say “Abba Father” in the midst of all your circumstances. Cry out that Fatherhood be restored first in the church. That God’s people honor, welcome and esteem over our church family, we have a father and that we will live by His principals.

2. Call for the restoration of fatherhood in our state. Ask that a spirit of repentance come so we may experience times of refreshing over our families.

3. Bind the covenant breaking spirit, which manifests as divorce, off our state. Declared that God’s love and faithfulness be released over the marriages.(Hebrews 13:4, Hosea 2:19-20)

4. Call for supernatural provision for those in financial difficulty and those who have lost jobs and homes would find work here in Michigan. We ask the Lord for financial breakthroughs for the families. Pray that our economy will prosper (Matthew 6 : 25-31, Philippians 4:19)

5. Pray to dry up the funding that is financing and fueling the pornography and child pornography within our state. Pray that these predators would be caught, prosecuted, and removed from society. (Ephesians 5:11, Proverbs 2:22) Pray for healing over those who have been abused by this system.

SUNDAY: Religion Mountain

Michigan’s waterways and land – in its early years of French exploration – was dedicated to the Queen of Heaven. Detroit at its founding, built under a spirit of Cain vs. of pleasing the Lord. Today the Detroit area and the city of Dearborn MI is home to the largest concentration of Muslims outside of the Middle East. God has entrusted us with the nations in Michigan (over 120+ are represented here). The veil of deception ancient people were under is the same that exists today. BUT God is making tremendous inroads to the point where Muslims are having encounters regularly through dreams and visions understanding who Christ is and receiving him as Lord and Savior.

Michigan has a powerful and influential Jewish community who funds the largest missionary outreach to Israel. Chuck Pierce in March 2010 prophesied that a highway would open up to both Jews and Muslims in our state and we would see both nations come to the Lord. Michigan says, “SELAH!”

“This is about more than blessing this Nation-this is about unlocking the door to the Muslim world.” (Dutch Sheets, 2005)

“The Lord has to have certain places that have an everlasting burning developing– He calls them ‘Freedom Outposts’ (like the old outposts where you got what you needed so you could keep going on your journey)… The only way this nation will make its shift in the next 3 years is that Freedom Outposts get developed now.” (Chuck Pierce, 2009)

1. Call upon Holy Spirit to reveal to all of the nations in our state, who Christ is as Savior. Pray all the nations receive the hope and love of our Lord Jesus Christ and to be saved.

2. Ask the Lord to give visions and dreams, signs and wonders along with angelic encounters that would bring forth the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ among the all peoples of our state.

3. Intercede for the establishing of Freedom Outposts in Michigan.

4. Release IS 62 & IS 35 over the highways in our state, that a pathway and clearing be made for all the nations to come to the Lord.

MONDAY: Business/Economic Mountain

Unemployment in Michigan, a state hurt by the troubles in the auto industry, fell from 14 percent in April. Michigan had had the highest monthly unemployment rate in the country since April 2006. The downturn had caused much reconstruction in the automotive industry to the point of Federal bailouts. Small businesses have been the major employers in the state. Research institutions, University of Michigan, Michigan State, Wayne State and Grand Valley State University remain important to our economy. Michigan has 55,000 farms with 10 million acres of farm land and vineyards exporting cherries, blueberries and sugar beets. We also have 38 deep water ports and a thriving tourist industry; however, 70% of the business comes from Michigan residents.

“There are going to be new technologies and witty inventions birthed by the creativity of the Holy Spirit that will change nations and economies of nations-it will establish new markets and energy sources and solutions in third world nations.

“Natural resources that have not even seen or known in the region, not even been identified in days previous, all of a sudden they are going to appear in the earth-real signs and wonders. They are going to find natural resources released, harvested, sold, and reproduced and it’s going to begin to turn the economy around.”

1. Pray that the spirit of greed and love of money will be broken off the financial system and businesses in Michigan. We ask the Lord to raise up righteous men and women with a Joseph-type gifting into leadership helping our state through this time of recession and depression. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)2.

2. Pray for the prospering and under girding of the small businesses within the state and the creation of new businesses and products. (Deuteronomy 8:18)

3. Pray for wisdom for our legislators so they will pass good laws that will help the failing businesses within the state. We ask for tax burdens to be lifted off of small business owners.

4. Pray for manufacturing, various industries, and new jobs to be brought into the state as well as the developing of new businesses creating more employment. (Proverbs 13:11)

5. Pray for job creation for our youth so this exodus from our state would stop.

TUESDAY: Education Mountain

The state of Michigan has many excellent universities, medical schools, law schools, agricultural and engineering schools. The University of Michigan was the first university established by any of the states. Michigan State University is the largest institution of higher learning in the state and one of the largest universities in the country. MSU’s College of Human Medicine has locations in seven communities throughout the state. Public schools continue to struggle with budget cuts and teacher lay-offs.

“I’m declaring to you education and books and universities that properly develop mind molders who influence the influential and raise up kingdom movers and shakers and kingdom builders in the educational system of the whole Detroit area.”

1. To raise up righteous teachers and professors that will tear down lies being taught in the schools. Pray for boldness and protection for the Christian teachers as they speak the truth, exposing wrong mindsets and idolatrous foundations. (Psalms 51:6 John 7:15-18

2. For Godly wisdom for the Boards of Education, the elected officials, both men and women, who make decisions for our children’s education materials. We ask the Lord to raise up Christians who will make a strong stand for good materials and against the new age, pro-abortion mindsets, anti god and homosexual friendly curriculum, and loose morality that is being forced upon the students. (Isaiah 30:20-22)

3. The influence of Islam is being taught in our schools. Michigan is the Islamic capitol of the USA. There is an over-abundance of Islamic schools in Southeastern Michigan.

WEDNESDAY: Government Mountain

Term limits has produced a whopping 29 seats in the State Senate where incumbents cannot seek re-election. In the House, the turnover will be just as dramatic with 52 out of 110 races featuring no incumbent. With many other statewide elected offices up for grabs, the 2010 election season will be among the most closely watched in years.

Prayer teams monthly visit our Capitol in Lansing, to pray for the government and its officials. A governmental House of Prayer is opening soon near the Capitol building. Our current Governor’s term is up as well as Senate and House members who are term limited. We believe there will be sweeping changes in leadership following the November election this fall.

“Corruption in politics will be dealt with. God is getting ready to change things in the political realm and corruption is about to be dealt with on major levels”.

Government Prayer Points:

1. Pray that the 2010 elections in November will restore true Godly leaders.

2. Pray for clear minds and the ability to be well informed to pass good laws for our state.

3. Pray for protection of Michigan from social unrest, terrorism, biological, and chemical warfare, as well as any geo-physical disasters.

THURSDAY: Media Mountain

Over the past year Michigan has seen media report various accounts of miracles taking place through the venue of prayer. This includes a Detroit pastor praying for and seeing reports of healings and miracles and in Saginaw a child came back to life a result of prayer. Pastors of this city shared with us, the next day high school students heard of this report and over 30 students accepted Christ then were baptized in the spirit.

Time Magazine, as we have mentioned, is documenting a year long visit the death or resurrection of Detroit.

In Detroit God is going to raise up new voices in the media that will be known for wisdom and truth. (Ray Hughes, 2008)

1. Call for the media to speak truth. Say to the mouth of media, prophesy truth, release the reports, signs and wonders of God.

2. Pray that a spirit of truth overtake all serving in media be unbiased and truthful in reporting the news. Pray for new standards of righteousness and integrity within the media and all communication outlets.

(Psalms 15:1-2, Proverbs 14:34)

2. Pray that the Spirit of Truth would expose deception and uncover the works of the antichrist spirit at work within the media all of our communication outlets.

3. Pray that the internet will be used as a technological laborer for God’s purposes. May Christians invade chat rooms, MySpace and Facebook with God’s truth always giving an answer and reason for the hope of their calling.

Kingdom on Earth   Leave a comment

Last night we met for a time of worship and prayer. There was one brother who came so hungry! It was so beautiful to watch the Lord respond to this man’s hunger. He always responds to our cry for HIM!

At the beginning of the night we prayed that this would not just be another gathering or meeting but that we would truly be changed by the presence of God. We asked for Him to share His heart with us. That our hearts would be moved and broken for the things that break His.

We suddenly found ourselves singing about entering into the Lord’s chambers. There was such an intimacy in the room. He was asking us to come into the King’s chambers and to listen as He speaks to us the things that are on His heart.

At one point Nikki spoke on behalf of the Lord saying…You are asking for my heart but are you sure you want it? It will hurt. Are you really sure you want it?

We immediately responded with “YES!” Then He immediately responded with more of His presence. As if to say, OK then, here you go.

We know that understanding the sufferings and joys of the Lord’s heart will not come without sacrifice. We must be wiling to sacrifice our time, personal agendas and ideas in order to steal away with Him. We must be willing to set aside what we WANT to do and do what He asks us to do. Knowing His heart will require obedience and sacrifice. But Ohhhhh, the reward of knowing Him is worth it ALL!

We also sang about His eyes of Fire. Oh just one glance from Him and we are changed! Just one glance from Him and our hearts can’t but yearn to see His Kingdom fulfilled on the earth. Just one glance from His eyes and our hearts can’t help but break for a lost and dying world to know HIM!

He is our prize. He is our reward. He is the lifter of our heads. He is our peace. He is our Everything!

This morning my husband and I were at church and there were so many references to the Lord’s heart as we all cried out for a real moving of Heaven on Earth. The Lord’s response to this cry was that He had already given us the Kingdom and it is up to us to yield to His Spirit inside of us and for us to Bring Heaven to Earth!!!

Yes God! May your sons and daughters realize the kingdom that lives inside of them and start living up to the standards of the King! That the bride of Christ conduct herself in a manner worthy of her Groom! That the people of the Almighty “I AM” walk worthy of the calling that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Come church. Let’s march together. One heart, one mind, one spirit as the Lord prayed that we would be ONE. Come let’s be One with each other as we yield to the ONE who called us.

Christina

Souls Must be our Priority!   Leave a comment

  I had another dream about my friend last night. In this dream I was at work and I was ministering to my brother in the Lord regarding a family situation he had regarding his daughter. All of a sudden she was there leaning over my cube. She had a look on her face of somewhat embarrassment and discomfort. (as if she knew that I knew what she had been doing and she was embarrassed to look at me) At the same time I knew that she was there because she was ready to make a lifestyle change. When I looked back at Jason and told him I needed to go he had such a sad look on his face because he really wanted to finish our talk regarding his daughter. I asked my friend if she could give me just a minute and she said sure.

Jason and I continued to talk while we worked but we were no longer working in a cubicle; we were serving in a restaurant. We could not seem to get through our conversation due to the needs of the people and the distractions that come along with serving. Then somehow I ended up on the phone with her. She had left. On the phone she was explaining to me all the reasons she was NOT going to make the changes to get right with God. After that I woke up. I was not completely sure if the dream was from the Lord when I woke up and was a little confused as to what it all might have meant if it were from Him.
 
Then the understanding began to unfold….
           When my friend had came to me she was in a very vulnerable state. She had the strength to come to me but not a whole lot more. I recognized that she was ready but I did not discern that I needed to respond immediately to her state of being. I should have told my already believing brother that I needed to tend to her state and I was sorry but we would have to continue later with our conversation. He and I were both already “ministering/ serving” the believers. They were already being fed and tended to but none of that mattered when there was a soul on the line. I should have recognized that the people we serve will continue to have need of service but that we should always stop everything for a soul to get right with God.
          In the dream, what I believe the Lord was showing me is that because I did not recognize the moment with her and left her that space of time alone she was able to be convinced by her own reasoning and the pushing of the enemy that she didn’t need the Lord and that we were doing just fine without her. One of the things i remember her saying to me on the phone is that “you all are doing so well without me. YOu don’t need me”. 
        I believe the Lord has given me a warning of what is to come. To pay attention when she, or any other lost soul comes and is ready to commit to the Lord. We MUST recognize the season for each fruit. We must stop everything we are doing and give them the time and attention that the Lord would have us to give if He were the very one there in that moment.

Favor is Chasing Me Down!   Leave a comment

Today I went to work a half hour early.. Not even remembering that we were having an ice cream social.

I got in line and the gentleman in line behind me said… “I wasn’t going to get in line but one of the mangers encouraged me to” (he was a vendor who worked on the air conditioning units at ESPN).

So at a table where 4 of us were talking about air conditioner problems, He told me that when I get tired of sweating to call him. He thinks he can save me hundreds and hundreds of dollars.
He is coming over Sunday..

Later He even went to his van so he could hand me a business card and found me in the studio.
That is why I say…

Oh yes favor is chasing me down!
Praise Jesus!

“And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God”
