PRAYER OF SALVATION

by Kenneth Copeland
Pray this prayer with me. If you’ve never made Jesus the Lord of your life, now is the time. If you’ve gotten away from God, it’s time for you to come on home, brother, where you belong. Just pray it, “Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Prayer against Ebola by Kenneth Copeland   Leave a comment

Father, in the name of Jesus, I present my body today as holy, living sacrifice, according to your word in Romans 12. I see in your word that is acceptable to you and Receive by faith you’re excepting my sacrifice. This body in which you have given to me to live in is holy ground. It’s off-limits to the devil, it’s off limits to sickness and disease. My body is absolutely off-limits to any plague because I take your promise of Psalms 91. 1000 can fall by my side 10,000 at my right hand and it does not come nigh me or my dwelling.

Bow your knee devil, you crawl the dust of the earth.

Ebola we take authority over you in the name of Jesus Christ.

Take you’re hands off of God’s property, keep your hands off of God’s property. My family, me, all of my household is off-limits to you Satan. Keep off, keep out. I plead the blood over me, my family, all of the believers of your divine kingdom, we stand together Lord for protection against every evil spirit, every evil person, every evil plan, every evil thing, and every wicked plan of the devil. The devil is bound, stop, thrown out in the name of Jesus.

According to Luke 4:11 we send ministering angels to lift us up, lest we dash our foot against a stone.
Keep us in all our ways Jesus!

The blessing wall is up! amen

Fresh Manna Daily   Leave a comment

In Exodus chapter 16 we read as the Lord speaks to Moses concerning the children of Israel. At this point the Lord is telling Moses that He has heard the grumblings of the people and He is going to answer them by feeding them quail in the evenings and bread in the mornings. He gave them strict instructions to only gather a specified amount for each person to last for each day and not to keep any extra for the next day. Those that disobeyed found that the bread (or “manna”) they had saved from the day before was full of maggots and smelled.

In Deuteronomy chapter 8 it says “ 2Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”

Notice that the scripture says that the LORD LED them into the wilderness and that He did this in order to humble them and to see what was in their hearts. He also CAUSED them to hunger to teach them that we should find our sustenance in the Bread that comes from Heaven. The very words that come from the mouth of our God are the only thing that will satisfy a hungry soul that was led into the wilderness.

The next time we see verse 3 quoted in scripture is in Matthew Chapter 4:  “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]

Note that Jesus was LED by the Spirit of God into the wilderness just as the children of Israel. He was also led there to be tempted just as they were.  (The Greek word used here can also be translated as tested). He could have grumbled against His Father at having led him to that place or because He was hungry. Just as the children of Israel were in the wilderness for 40 years Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights and he also was HUNGRY. His response to the devil was that he lives not by bread only but by every word that comes from the mouth of His Father.

In Matthew 6:11 Jesus is teaching us that we ought to pray this way: “Give us this day our DAILY BREAD”. It is no mistake that he is telling us to pray for fresh daily bread. I believe there is a principle being laid out for us in the scriptures to seek the Lord for daily bread from Heaven. We cannot live on the manna from yesterday. Not to say that what we received from the Lord the day before will be full of maggots but that the Lord intends to give us fresh manna DAILY. He has prepared fresh words for us to live by for TODAY. Our Heavenly Father knows what today will hold for us and He knows the exact words that we need to hear to be able to face THIS day. The words from yesterday may no longer be applicable for what we must face TODAY.

One last food for thought (pun intended J )…Read Psalms 104. He gives life to everything on earth and in verse 15 it says that he” gives wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.” I love the wording chosen by the psalmist of “Bread that sustains their hearts”. How I know that one fresh word from my Lord can sustain my heart. It can satisfy any hunger and put to rest any fears or doubts that may come as we are walking in our wilderness.

TRICKED OUT PONY   Leave a comment

TRICKED OUT PONY

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Mustangs… always have always will. My dad used to take me to see them come off the factory line where he worked in Dearborn, Michigan.

We would sit at a Duncan Donut Shop and look out the window at a dealership that had all the Mustangs lined up. Even as a child.. I knew I would have one some day.

And I’ve owned several. It was past time to sell my current ‘stang. It took a Mustang to get me out of my Mustang, and more importantly it took the Lord to show me it was time.

Tuesday of this week, I had a rare day off in the middle of a work week. Monday night I spent time looking on the internet pricing Mustangs to figure out exactly what I was interested in.

I gathered my printouts with dealer incentives and Kelley Blue Book prices so I was educated as to what my 2005 Mustang was worth.

My plan for the day was to go to Rock Hill first to get my car detailed just in case I traded it in. Next stop, a dealership in Rock Hill, and then work my way back towards Fort Mill Ford, and then check out the Charlotte dealerships.

As I was starting to get on the highway to go to Rock Hill, I felt a prompting to 1st Stop at Fort Mill Ford to “just do a quick drive by to see what’s on the lot.”

Not really wanting a salesperson to catch me looking… ‘Cause I had a schedule and a lot of places to go. (So I thought)

Caught..

I was greeted by a nice salesperson and I told her about my plan for the day.  There was one item I had to have on my Mustang, that was leather seats. My 2005 Mustang had cloth seats that I had to replace with leather because the cloth ones wore out.

I kept looking inside the vehicles and not one of them had leather.

That really was a deal breaker for me. She told me I could have leather put in for an additional charge.

The other thing I wanted was a premium package which was the middle-of-the-road Mustang which had upgraded rims and trim and technology packages.

I was honest with my salesperson and told her I wanted to go to Rock Hill and that I would work my way back and that she didn’t have any cars I wanted anyway.

We go to My salesperson’s office just to see what the price of the base Mustang is.. and I figure I can trick it out with leather seats and better rims later. This way my payment would be low.

So when I’m in the office with the salesperson.. I feel prompted to show her some tricks on her ipad.

So I give her all my quick tricks on the iPad– some ways to make it quicker, ways to organize photos and she really enjoys the lesson and wants more classes!

We start talking more personal and come to find out, her mom is battling cancer and has a mass on her lung and I realize I’m not sitting in that office about a Mustang at all– it’s a divine “God Appointment!”

As I listen to her pour out her heart about her mother who is choosing not to take any chemo or radiation treatments, I know I have to tell her that the Lord healed my father and healed me and if He will do it for us, he will do it for her mom.

I told her It doesn’t matter her age.  We spoke about faith.  We spoke against doubt and unbelief. We talked about how Jesus healed all!

I told her I wanted to pray.  I asked her mother’s name and she said, “Let’s do it right here right now.”

Praying for somebody in public is a little different at a dealership with sales people in glass offices, but this was life or death.  We didn’t care. We just went for it!

We prayed. We agreed. We talked about the power of agreement according to Matthew 18:18-19 “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. “

I told her to read healing scriptures in the Bible to her mother everyday.

Psalm 30:2

O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

Psalm 34:19

Many are the afflictions of the righteous:

but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Psalm 55:18

He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:

for there were many with me.

Psalm 97:10

Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserves the souls of his saints;

he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

Psalm 103:3

Who forgives all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Psalm 119:93

I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

 Isaiah 53:5

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

 

She was touched.  I was touched. And like I stated before, the Mustang didn’t matter at this point.

We started to look at the numbers. I thought…. “maybe Lord, you brought me here for her and to build her faith and maybe I’ll just get the base Mustang even though that is not the desire of my heart.”  I would just deal with it and upgrade the things that I wanted to upgrade later.

It would’ve been a little bit difficult to go from a 2005 Mustang totally loaded with navigation and leather seats and sported out like a GT and bigger rims to a plain Jane maroon-colored Mustang, but at that point I was fine with it.

Because my dad worked at Ford over 35 years, I get a discount. So she  looked up my discounted price on the base Mustang.

My dad’s discount was basically the same price that Fort Mill Ford was asking for the base Mustang.

She then tells me that they have a sister dealership on the other side of town and that I could pick a car online and they could bring it to me.

Immediately we see the 2013 red Mustang, black leather seats, updated rims, updated technology package integrated Bluetooth with $5000 worth of discounts from the dealership.

Couple that with my dad’s discount we did the numbers and the base Mustang was the same price as this TRICKED OUT PONY!

Isn’t that like God?

He gave me the tricked out Pony at the price of the base Mustang!

WHAT! YOU BETTER PRAISE HIM!

I did not have to run from dealership to dealership…

I had totally forgotten months ago that I said I wanted a red Mustang. It was my friends that reminded me when I told them, “Hey, I got a 2013 Mustang!” and they said,  “It’s red, right?”

I was ready to settle for a base Mustang, any color, and the Lord remembered my prayers more than I did and he cared about the desires of my heart.

We’ve got to put Him first.  We have got to have compassion for other people.  We have got to stop and pray for people without even thinking about it. When you dig a little deeper, The Lord will show you what burdens people are bearing behind that smile.

Here is the icing on the cake:  a few years ago, I verbally committed to go back to MorningStar and made my decision to go to that prophetic church so I could learn more about prophecy.

The first Sunday back, a total stranger comes up to me in the middle of the worship service. I’m standing up by the audio booth and she said, “You’re the one, you’re the one, you’re the one– I have a word for you.”

So she proceeds to say this: “What I see is: God has given you a vehicle….not only a physical vehicle. I feel like it’s a car, but it’s also a vehicle for you to grow in.”

For the last few years I have been wondering if promotion and growth and transitions happen in the spiritual or natural first?

Now I know!   I remember sitting at an IHOP with Three Pastors and I took my Mustang post card out and we prayer over it.. It was a RED MUSTANG TRICKED OUT…

Now the spiritual Vehicle is “cleared for take off!”
