The Greatest Two Days

Jesus finished His last supper with His disciples and then headed for Gethsemane, His place of prayer. He went there often to pray and no doubt knew He would spend His last night there. As He began to pray, the agony became intense. His battle in Gethsemane lasted for three hours. He agonized in prayer, so much so that, at a certain point, the capillaries burst in His face and eyes. Even His pores began to ooze blood. He pressed through the agony until He was able to say, “Nevertheless, not My will, but Yours be done, Father.” Angels then came to minister to Him. 

Soon after, the guards came and arrested Him. Betrayed by a friend, a follower, a member of His ministry team, He was scourged. He was beaten with a cat of nine tails 39 times. The lashes whipped around him and tore the flesh from His bones. It was said that after the beating by trained soldiers, He was unrecognizable. Isaiah 52:14 says, “His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness.” By those stripes, we are healed.

But it wasn’t over yet. The soldiers then pressed a crown of thorns into His head. They plucked out portions of His beard. He was beaten, cursed and mocked. They spat on Him. He bore our shame. In that condition He was presented before Pontius Pilate, who, I think, hoped the appearance of this man would evoke some mercy. It did not. They cried out for the release of a thief, instead. Jesus had only ever done good. He had healed lepers, opened blind eyes, forgave sinners, gave loved ones back to the grieving. There is no natural explanation for what was happening, except that the people were under a demonic stupor. This was the greatest battle between Satan and mankind that has ever taken place. All the stops were pulled out by Satan to try and win this battle. 

Still, Calvary awaited this sinless man. The place of the skull. Golgotha. Outside the city. Everything that happened in those six hours on Friday fulfilled scripture. The clothing He wore. The piercing of His hands and feet in crucifixion. The sign over His head. The soldiers gambling for His robe. His forgiveness of the thief hanging next to Him. Then, the Father turning His face away from His Son for the first and last time in all eternity. Jesus was separated from the Godhead, as He took on all of our sin. The earth grew dark, then He uttered His final words, “Father, into Your hands, I commend My spirit.” The earth quaked, the graves opened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. Man would never have to be separated from God by rote, form, and ritual ever again.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Take a few minutes and consider Christ’s work on the cross. Think about what He has done for just You. Now, contemplate what He has done to set all of humanity free from Satan’s hand.
  • Repent of any known sin. It seems impossible not to when we read again all He went through to redeem us.
  • Thank Him again for that work! Thank Him for making all things new! Thank Him for this season of awakening and harvest we are now in!
  • Make declarations about this Great Harvest of the Ages season. Recount the work of the cross prophetically into the atmosphere.
  • Remind the Father that He said Jesus’ inheritance was the nations, the people groups, of the earth. Call for the fulfillment of that promise.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, thank You for what this season represents. Thank You for the strength we feel in its very atmosphere. Thank You for the spirit of awakening that is here. We thank You for the “new” we are moving into. We thank You that we are not stuck in the past, but we are in a process, a journey, of moving forward into new beginnings. Things are new every morning. We are even in a new season with You where everything all around the earth is about to change. The Great Harvest of the Ages is about to begin. It even has begun. Nations will turn to You. Strongholds that have existed for centuries, millennia, will come down now. Millions will come to You. The Spirit of Revelation will permeate the atmosphere over entire cities and nations; entire people groups; entire races. We will see demonic spirits broken off of them and a Spirit of Revelation will open up their eyes to see You. We say, “This will be the greatest hour for the message of the cross; the message of Yeshua; the message of Messiah; the message of He Who came to die for all—all people and every people group.”

Father, we ask for all the nations as His inheritance. You said He could have them. You announced there would be people there of every tribe and tongue and nation. We say, “Not one word will pass away until it’s all fulfilled.” We celebrate this day, even as they celebrated His entrance into the city. We grieve the pain He had to endure on our behalf. We repent. We celebrate what He accomplished. We celebrate Who He is and Who You are and who He has made us. We give You a shout of praise in Jesus’ name! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Not our will, but accomplish Yours through us in Jesus’ name, Father!

Why the Lamb?

What a great season this is! I am privileged to announce the Cross and the Resurrection! I believe God is moving us into a fresh beginning in this season. There are people that come to our churches in this season that don’t come any other time of year. They may not know much about this season. They watch us online. The wonder, “What is Passover all about? What are the palm branches all about? Why is a lamb important?”

I heard of a young man recently beginning to attend a congregation. The church began to sing, “Worthy is the Lamb.” He walked over to the pastor’s wife and asked, “So, what’s with the lamb?” He had no religious background whatsoever. Think about it. To him, it would have been no different if they’d been singing about a cow or a dog or a horse. “What’s with the lamb?” So let’s look at why the lamb. 

Passover is all about the sacrificial lamb that was offered when God was about to deliver Israel out of Egypt. Israel was told to put the blood of the Passover Lamb on the doorposts. Every house that had it, the angel of death would pass over. They would be protected from the death of the firstborn—the final plague God used to deliver Israel from Egyptian bondage.

From that moment on, the sacrifice and deliverance that would be celebrated every year came to be called, “Passover”. That sacrificial lamb came to be called, “the Passover lamb”. God delivered His people and brought judgement to His enemies. All of that was simply leading up to the sacrificial Lamb that was Jesus. 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, ‘Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29; NKJV)

“For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.” (1 Corinthians 5:7b; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Revelation, chapter 5.
  • Thank the Lamb for His sacrifice. His shed blood has saved you, healed you, and delivered you.
  • Declare, ““Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
  • Worship and say, ““Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
  • Dance around with joy and praise Him!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the picture you painted at the Passover is a poignant picture, striking in its symbolism. That picture was fulfilled by Your Son! We need to embrace the reality of what Christ did as He became that sacrificial Lamb, foretold in the Passover preparation. We need to remember the power of the shed blood to save and deliver—from slavery to sin and from bondage of every other god. Nothing can rule over us now, for whom the Son sets free is free indeed! 

We are going to dance on our enemies! That’s what Passover is all about! That’s when You danced on the devil. It’s when You danced on our disease. That’s when You danced on our failures. That’s when You danced on our sin. Let Your Church hear the Word of the Lord for this season. Bring us through our door. Let us decree, “The blessings of being passed over and the blessings of crossing over are secured for us in Jesus, our Christ!” Amen.

Today’s decree:

Tell everybody! The Lamb of God takes away the sins of the world!

Entering Into Passover 2020

“Passover 2020 will begin tonight at sundown. Those of the Jewish faith (and some Christians) around the world will observe the Lord saving the Israelites from a plague of the death of the firstborn. He did this through His servant Moses, and it resulted in the Hebrews being released from 400 years of slavery. More than that, however, is that this was a foreshadowing of God sending Jesus to save the whole world by His death and resurrection on the cross. Liberation for the Israelites in that time, and for us today, came through God’s mighty works and His outstretched arm. He did it all!

“Most Christians celebrate Resurrection Sunday (or Easter), but we should all also learn to recognize in the Passover service freedom from sin and death through Christ’s sacrifice. Jesus celebrated Passover. That’s what He and the disciples were doing as they celebrated what we call ‘the Last Supper’. Jesus released incredible revelation at His ‘Last Passover Supper’. He was symbolized eternally in the ‘afikomen’, the middle of three matzahs (Jewish yeast-free flatbread). In the service, the afikomen is broken in half, wrapped in cloth, and hidden until after the meal. Later, when the children find it, they come to the father, and he redeems it for a reward. Jesus took the bread, the afikomen, and said, ‘This is my body… broken for you…’ He then took the third cup, the ‘Cup of Redemption’, saying, ‘This is my blood…’ His perfect, sinless blood would be shed on the cross just hours later, once again redeeming humanity with His outstretched arms.” (Jon Bunn)

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.’” (Matthew 26:26-28; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Exodus, chapter 12 alone or with your family tonight and share the story that foreshadowed the coming Christ. 
  • Read John 6:53-58 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-27. In both of these passages, you see Jesus tied to the Passover.
  • Let the revelation of all these passages sink in. How wonderful to see His plan of redemption foreshadowed in Israel hundreds of years before Christ. 
  • Take communion using Matthew 26:26-28 above.
  • Intercede for the Jews to “see” Jesus, their Messiah, as they participate in the Passover seder tonight.

A prayer you can pray (From “The Story of Messiah, Our Passover”):

“When the fullness of the time came, God, You sent forth Your Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, in order that You might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons” (Galatians 4:4-5). You sent Jesus the Messiah to deliver mankind from slavery to sin. Jesus met the legal requirement for mankind’s redemption. As it is written: ‘… the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him’ (Isaiah 53:6). Messiah was cut off out of the land of the living for our transgressions, having died to pay the wages of sin for us. It is the blood of Messiah, our Passover, that causes You, Almighty God, to distinguish us from all others as Your people. All who have believed this report and have placed their trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus the Messiah, have been redeemed from their sins, and have passed from death to life. Messiah came as the sacrificial Lamb of God to provide redemption for all mankind, as it is written: ‘… the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him’ (Isaiah 53:6). Messiah was cut off out of the land of the living for our transgressions, having died to pay the wages of sin for us. It is the blood of Messiah, our Passover, that causes You to distinguish us from all others as His people. All who have believed this report and have placed their trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus the Messiah, have been redeemed from their sins, and have passed from death to life.” Father, we worship You. Jesus, we thank You. Holy Spirit, lead and guide us into all truth. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Jesus is the Passover lamb, given to take away the sins of the world!

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 4

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

DUTCH: God is setting the stage for what is coming. I have been telling people that this is not just for America. I know that what God is doing here is not just for here. I run with people like you, Chuck, who are called primarily to the nations. So, I know that what God is doing in America is directly linked in His heart and mind with what is happening in the nations of the earth. And, what is on His mind is the harvest. We can’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. We can’t get so focused on this crisis, that we, as Believers, are not able to step back and ask what God is doing in His big picture.

CHUCK: Well, all you have to do is look at statistics and see we have had a lot worse crisis in the past. We’ve had a lot worse flus. We’ve had a lot worse issues. I think the thing about this is the unknown capability of it. It is not knowing how it will progress that is changing the course of the world. God is taking this and causing nations to re-evaluate how they operate. 

Let’s talk about the nations. You always have such a good understanding of what God is doing in the nation and I have always gone to the nations. I have been called to many, but to a few of them especially, like to China and Russia. I have a lot of background and history of what’s happening there. 

Last year in September at Rosh Hashanah, I was looking at what 80 is about. 80 is about our voice. It’s about breath. Look at what the crisis is over—voice and breath. It’s happening worldwide. How will the voice and the breath of God enter into nations? 

I have a long history of praying for China. I have already been there 3 times this year, meeting with various leaders who help the Church advance in China. In 1986, the Lord showed me China in 10-year increments. He said something then that has never left me, “Starting in 2020, China makes its biggest move toward economic domination worldwide.” A watchman would then start watching China in September 2019. How are they going to make that economic move? 

“One is calling to me from Seir, ‘Watchman, what time of the night? Watchman, what time of the night?’ The watchman says: ‘Morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; come back again.’” (Isaiah 21:11-12; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Consider the wisdom of God. Ponder this: His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than ours. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
  • God wants us to watch. He wants us to see. He wants us to intercede. Choose to be the one standing on the wall, jumping in the gap. Inquire of the Lord.
  • Shut all media down today and worship for an hour or two. Put on your favorite instrumental worship music, get your Bible, sit still, and listen. 
  • Say what you hear or what the Lord shows you. 
  • Intercede for the U.S. economy and how it is related to other nations of the earth.
  • Intercede for the economic relationship between the U.S. and China.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are wisdom. You are the author of knowledge and understanding. You have placed things in the earth designed for us to discover and to search out. We must process things we are pondering with Your Holy Spirit, or the enemy will take the knowledge and twist it and use it for his own destructive ends. Lead us, Lord, and teach us. We will inquire of You. We will watch. We will pray. We will proclaim what You put in our hearts and mouth to declare, even when we don’t understand and can’t comprehend. Lord, we will set time apart for You in this quiet season. We will find the time to shut ourselves in with You, because we are in unique days. We have not been this way before. We want to know what things are shifting in the earth. We want to know You more, hear Your voice, see what You want us to see in Your Word, and declare what You want us to declare. 

We are in a global economy and the economies of nations are shaking. Everything has gone into lockdown and whole industries are suffering. Some may never recover. Some will not look the same. Look how quickly something beginning in one country has affected the whole earth. Look how quickly the governments of the earth moved to protect the people’s lives, but look at what has happened to their livelihoods. What is China’s role in all of this? Show us how to pray for our economic relationship with  China. What will it look like on the other side, Lord? How shall we pray? How shall we position ourselves to make it through? How do we position ourselves to reap the harvest? We look to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the watchmen arise. Watch and pray, see and understand what the Spirit is saying to the Church.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 3

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure that as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: Prophetic revelation for the year begins at Rosh Hashanah. In 2019, we started looking at the number 80, because in Hebrew, it’s the year 5780. I also started looking at 2020. I could see that it would be important that the two were aligned together. This would be important like never before, because this was going to be the year where the Lord started dividing the nation. He was also going to be looking at each nation and how they were responding to Him. He’s going to say, “This nation is really responding to me, but this one is rejecting Me more than it has ever rejected Me.” I think the Lord has answered your prayers, Dutch. I see this nation responding to Him. 

America is responding to God. Therefore, the division is getting longer and wider, and people can look and clearly see the division between the two factions that are in this nation. Righteousness seems to be rising.

DUTCH: I see exactly that. I have been encouraging people that everything has shifted. In this new era we’re moving into, it has become clear to me that God has raised up a remnant of intercessors. He has raised them to a very high level of maturity. What the maturity in the prayer movement and in the prophetic movement has produced is that we are seeing the nation turn now. 

There were things that took place before now—the Russia controversy and the impeachment process. As unhealthy as that all was for the nation and the President, all of that was drawing this line that has become a clear line of demarcation. People are starting to understand. We have been able to see where Believers stood. Now, we have this whole other segment of the population that is so tired of the direction we’ve been going. They’re ready for change. Some don’t even know what that change needs to be. I don’t even think our president knows what that would look like, even though he’s always trumpeting change. 

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.” (Mark 3:24-26; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord for His wisdom and revelation.
  • Ask the Lord to give You His Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. We must have an Issachar anointing to understand the time and the season we are in.
  • Do you understand that the Lord is dividing, sifting, and sorting in many arenas right now? You see it, but did you know it was Him?
  • Are you seeing what He needs you to see in the division?
  • Proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are the only wise One. You are the all-sufficient One. You know the end from the beginning. Your Holy Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation can be imparted to those who have made Christ their Lord and Savior. We need the anointing that rested on the tribe of Issachar, who knew the times and epochs. Therefore, we can participate with You more fully and accurately, as You shift us into this new era. One thing we need to see is how You are involved in dividing our nation. You are allowing us to see the division clearly, because America as a nation is primarily choosing You and Your ways. Thank You, Lord. Show us how to intercede into this, so the nation reaps maximum benefit from it and can continue forward. We proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!” In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The nation is dividing, so we can clearly see.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 2

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior post on Give Him 15 on March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: The Lord had to put the world in some Shabbat form. I call it, “A Divine Pause.” That’s how intercession works. God is saying, “We have to get some things in order, so we have a greater strength going forward in days ahead.”

Let me back up and say that last January I asked the Lord what He was saying for 2019. He said, “Plow through.” So, Dutch, you and I gathered in about 26 different places across America to really encourage God’s Kingdom people, His watchmen, intercessors, prophets, and apostles to rise up and start watching in a new way. This was especially for this year we are presently in. For you who don’t know, Dutch made it all the way through that journey until the last meeting. It was a great toll to plow up some things that needed to be plowed up. As we ended that tour, Dutch had to have some sort of rest. That’s what happens when we plow hard. We need to end in rest.

Since we plowed all year, where are we now? Let me tell you about some books that will give you a great understanding of what God is doing. Tim Sheets has a great book on this new era, The New Era of Glory. I encourage you to get it. Dutch has a book that helps us know how to watch and pray, Watchman Prayer. Then Robert Heidler and I wrote a book called, The Triumphant Kingdom. This is about how the apostolic Church is rising up, not the mega-church. 

Let me go back to August of last year when I started hearing what the Lord was saying for this new era. By September, we were entering into this new era of revelation. At Rosh Hashanah, which was in September 2019, you are crossing over into new revelation. This is the first month of the year on the Hebraic calendar, and God’s dearest month of the year, where He calls us to break old cycles. He calls us to enter into what He is announcing for the future.

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord and thank Him for this Divine Pause we are in!
  • Yesterday, we prepared our hearts. Today, ask if there are any other things you need to get in order to move forward in days ahead.
  • Read Hebrews 4. Have you learned to enter His rest? Consider the last era as over, your last assignment finished, and ask for the grace to do so.
  • Ask the Lord to show you what resources you, specifically, need to get prepared for your assignment in the new era.
  • Declare, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!”
  • Decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You! We exalt Your holy Name! Jesus, You are the entire focus of our lives. You are all that we need. You are everything. You have moved our entire nation, saved and unsaved, into a Divine Pause. We have never been this way before, but the prophets are telling us this is a very necessary season of rest. Therefore, we will embrace it. We will enter Your Hebrews 4 rest of God, individually, and corporately. We consider everything we have been doing to be in a holy reset. We may move on in similar assignments, but if we do, they will not be the same. Something will be different. Old cycles are breaking. The familiar is breaking. Habits and addictions are breaking. Things will be seen clearly. Nothing will be quite the same.

Show us what resources each of us needs to help us prepare to move forward. Give us revelation and understanding, wisdom and grace. We will each say, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!” We decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

Today’s Decree:

In the “Divine Pause”, we will watch and pray and learn, and get ready to move into the new era.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 1

Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you. I’m always asking myself in times like this, “What is the enemy trying to do and what does the Lord want to do?” It’s like Joseph said to his brothers, “You meant it for evil, but God had a different purpose for it.” 

I’ve been feeling from the start, as far as God’s part in it, that it’s about the aligning of the nations for what is coming. I am not implying He is doing it. I know it is destructive, but God always has a higher plan than what the enemy has to bring His purposes to pass.

Many of you know by now that Chuck gave a Word some months back pertaining to the coronavirus outbreak. So, here’s some of what he was sensing and hearing. He’s been seeking the Lord and will also be sharing some of what he’s hearing now and going forward. We’re going to share that dialogue between Chuck and I over the next few days. 

CHUCK: In the midst of the trial you (Dutch) have been going through physically, we know you’ll come back stronger than you’ve ever been before. Probably by August of this year, we’ll need your voice more than ever to step through into what God is saying to us. I was saying it before, but now I am seeing it. You’ve known me for years and I’ve lived on a timetable, which is a covenant timetable. I’m always looking for the Hebraic calendar for what’s going on. It’s not really around the calendar dates, but around the feast times, because the Lord always wants us to maintain a harvest mentality. Even in the midst of crisis, He wants us to maintain a harvest mentality, so we can get back into increase. So, that’s the real issue. How will we move back into increase? If we are all thinking that way, we are going to have some great strategies come forth from this time that I’m calling, “a Divine Pause.”

“Then David asked the LORD, ‘Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?’ And the LORD told him, ‘Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!’” (1 Samuel 30:8; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to show you how to prepare your heart for the next 12 days leading up to Passover.
  • Ask Him to strengthen your heart to move through this next few weeks.
  • Ask the Father to reveal to you how you will recover all and enter into the harvest season on the other side of this.
  • Whether you are an intercessor, a prophet, an apostle, or other leader, say, “My voice needs to be heard! Prepare me, Lord.”
  • Declare, “Some great strategies are going to come forth from this ‘Divine Pause’ the Lord has put us in.”
  • Decree, “I will surely recover everything that was taken from me!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the enemy may have released this pestilence in the earth, but You are causing the Church to take advantage of it. You are going to prepare us for harvest. You are going to cause increase to come to us, individually and nationally. Is there something You would like me to do to get ready? How does my heart look to You? Am I fearful, doubting, or untrusting in any way? Is there any place where my heart is not pure or not wholly Yours? Where is Jesus not fully reigning in my life? Where I am experiencing losses, show me how to recover all and increase. Just like David did, I ask You, “Will I catch the enemy and recover what he has stolen from me and my family?” Tell me what to do and how to overcome. This is a perfect opportunity. Let’s show the unbelievers who you are. Let them see You through my life. Make my voice heard! Let me open my mouth and testify. Reveal those strategies to me during this Divine Pause that I will need to recover loss and enter into increase. With them, I will surely recover everything that was taken from me! Thank You, Jesus, my Provider. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will show us how to harvest as we embrace His Divine Pause.

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 4

“Every child of God should express praise. Human praise of a holy God is a major theme throughout God’s Word. Praise is expressing to God our appreciation and understanding of His worth. Praise says ‘thank you’ for each aspect of God’s nature. Praise expands our awareness of God’s character. ‘Praise’ comes from a Latin word meaning ‘value’ or ‘prize.’ When we praise God, we proclaim His merit or worth and His value to us here on earth. We find other words related to praise in the Bible, including ‘glory,’ ‘blessing,’ ‘thanksgiving’ and ‘hallelujah’. These should all be ways we express our love for God. 

“The order of the Lord’s Prayer in Luke 11:2 is important, ‘Father . . . hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come.’ First, Jesus praised God, and then He made His request. Praising God puts us in the right frame of mind to begin to declare our needs to a holy Father. With our hands outstretched, we can worship God in such a way that our daily provision can be released. Through worship, we can be assured that our supply will always come to us in a timely manner. Praise and thanksgiving are the opposite of worry. One of our greatest worries is over our needs being met. This is a time to be thankful for all that God is doing in our lives. Be like the one leper who went back and thanked Jesus for his healing. This thankfulness produced not just healing, but wholeness. Be whole!

“There is also a price to pay to enter into praise and worship. There is a cost to this process, and we are faced with a fundamental issue: Will we choose to just enjoy the efforts of others, or will we enter into the sacrifice of praise in a personal way? Furthermore, will we choose to offer this sacrifice in the good times as well as the trials?  We must be willing to embrace these costs to experience the real fruit of our praise.

“There is, perhaps, no stronger weapon of warfare than praise and worship to the Lord. Satan hates our worship to God for many reasons. For one, he is jealous of our worship. He longs to obtain it for himself through whatever means he can. For another, he knows that the weapon of worship is strong and effective.” (Chuck Pierce)

“Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 149:5-9; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Joshua 5 & 6. Praise God! Ask the Lord for the strategy of worship that will dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented you from moving forward in your promise.
  • Read Psalm 34. Praise God for the angels that are encamping around you.
  • Read Psalm 85. Praise God for restoring favor to your land.
  • Read Philippians 4. Thank God for establishing your mind on Him and making you think His thoughts. Realign your thoughts.  
  • Declare that you will capture each thought you have that is contrary to God’s judgment.
  • Read Acts 16:16-34. Praise God and watch your prison doors let go.  Watch salvation come to those around you who are imprisoned.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we praise You! We proclaim that You merit our highest and best praise and worship. Your worth and Your value to us here on earth is not measurable. Your love makes us express our love to You in return. You provide for us. You are our healer. You are our very best friend. You are our peace. You are our way maker. You are our protector. There is nothing we can ever need that You do not give us.

We will praise you in the good times and we will praise You in the challenging ones, such as we are living in now. You will not ever let the enemy triumph over us. He cannot have a drip of our worship. It only belongs to You. We will praise You and dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented us from moving forward in our promise. We will praise You for angels that are encamping around us. You have posted them there. We will praise You for restoring favor to our land. We will thank You for establishing our minds on You and making us think Your thoughts. Your thoughts and Your ways are higher than ours. We will capture every thought! We will watch You open our prison doors, and we will live free! We will watch salvation come to those around us who are imprisoned, as well. We exalt You most High God! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the saints be joyful in glory! This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 3

“All throughout God’s Word, we see that God is enthroned in praise. We glorify Him through our worship. That is why praise and worship are essential to experiencing God’s glory. Praise is that element of celebration that can transport us into the throne room of God. Once we are in the throne room at His feet, we need to worship and adore Him. As we worship Him in that intimate place, He begins to reveal His glory to us. God is looking for true worshipers who will worship ‘in spirit and truth’ (John 4:24). And as He finds those worshipers, they are able to experience the reality of heaven, which is God’s glory.

“Worship causes us to move thankfully with our body toward our creator. Praise (or yadah in Hebrew) is to worship God with extended hands. With hands lifted up, we declare the merit of God, and we thank Him for everything He has put in our hands. We find this concept first mentioned in the Bible when Leah conceived her fourth son and named him Judah, meaning praise. When Jacob acknowledged Judah, he extended his highest blessing upon him and declared that even his brothers would praise him. He also declared that Judah (praise) would triumph over all of his enemies with royal authority (the scepter) and legal authority (the lawgiver). The word ‘Judah’ also means to hold out your hand and throw or shoot a stone or an arrow at your enemy. Therefore, we find that praise will be a key weapon of the Spirit of God in our lives in days ahead.” (Chuck Pierce)

“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.” (Psalm 9:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by, Chuck Pierce):

  • Read Psalm 130 and Rev. 2:10. Praise God for removing your past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to you. Stand in His Presence and receive an outpouring of His grace.  
  • Let Hope arise in you, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon you, and command all fear to leave you.
  • Read Psalms 131 – 134. 
  • Praise God and let perfect peace manifest in you. Stop striving and leaning on your own understanding concerning your circumstances and allow trust to arise. 
  • Embrace the faithful love of God. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, declare that your soul is a weaned child within you. A weaned child has come to a new place of maturity. 
  • There is no peace until all our enemies are under our feet. Ascend above your enemies and reach the goal of the throne room. Sing, praise, and worship in the presence of the LORD.
  • Receive a new anointing, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. 

A prayer you can pray:

God, I praise You for removing my past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to me. I stand in Your Presence and receive an outpouring of Your grace. Let Hope arise in me, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon me. I command all fear to leave my household. I praise You. Let perfect peace manifest in my life. I want to stop striving and leaning on my own understanding concerning my circumstances. Cause trust in Jesus to arise in me. I embrace Your faithful love. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, I declare that my soul is a weaned child within me. You are causing me to come into a new place of maturity. I will not find peace until all my enemies are under my feet, so let me ascend above every one of my enemies. Let me come boldly to Your throneroom to find grace to help in this time of need. I will sing, praise, and worship in Your presence, Lord. I receive a new anointing as I stand in that holy place, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. I will need that anointing to show the enemy who I belong to. Then, he must flee! All praise to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our highest praises to Jesus will cause us to triumph over all of our enemies!

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 2

“Say to the Lord, ‘Open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound!’ God is reminding us we have authority to operate from a heavenly realm. He has given us eyes to see into a heavenly realm. Throw your hands up. Say, ‘I no longer can be confined. The Word of God is without bounds. It will never be overcome.’ 

“We are entering a season where we will see many lights out. There will be power failure, after power failure, after power failure. But the Lord says, ‘I have a people that know how to create light. They will be like generators creating the light for many to follow. Get ready, because as the lights go out from city to city to city, My people will rise up and become the light.’ Like a prism reflects light, He is going to make His people His prism and you will reflect His light everywhere. 

“Feel the sound rising up within you. The Lord says, ‘I have a people that have been in discord, but I have a tuning fork. Watch me bring a harmony in this decade through My people so the world can hear the sound that I intend. Discord might think it’s sounding, but My people will find their voice of harmony this season.’”

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say to the Lord, “Open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound!”
  • Declare that the Lion of Judah is about to roar through His Church.
  • Say, “The world will see Jesus in a Church that won’t be silenced!”
  • Don’t let past challenges and brokenness keep you silent now! Get ready to make Him known through your praise and worship.
  • Declare, “Jesus, You are the Light of the World. The world may lose its light for a season, but we’ll show the world the true Light.”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, open our eyes to Your Breath! Open our ears to Your sound! We hear the sound of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. You have prevailed! You have already won! Victory belongs to Jesus! You have put a fire within us. You do not want us to stay silent with this fire burning inside us. You want to let it move us. You want it to motivate us to tell others about You. We might have been broken in the last season, but behold, You make all things new. You heal us and move us out again. You move us to open up the atmosphere around us. Everywhere we go, we open up our mouths and speak Your words of hope. We sing Your songs of praise. We reflect Who You are. We show Who You are.

You are the Light of the World. The world may lose its light for a season, but we’ll show the world the real Light. We will light the darkness of hearts and minds. You are going to heal individuals and cities and this nation as we open our mouths in worship. You will  deliver and break open hard hearts as we pick up our instruments and fill the atmosphere with praise. Make us one in our worship of You, Jesus. Let the world see You as we praise You with one voice. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will worship and see the Glory of the Lord cover the nation as the waters cover the sea!
