What is “Normal”?

If Christ is normal, what does that make us? If He came to show us what Spirit-filled people look like, not operating as under the fall, but filled with the Spirit and breath of God, listening to the Father, moving in Holy Spirit, doing the works of the Father, giving the teachings of the Father, then why aren’t we living that way? He came and showed us the pattern and said, “This is normal…” If He is “normal”, what are we? We are going to manifest the fullness of the wisdom of Christ. It can now be revealed to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. We could not fully do that in the last season, but we can do it in this new era.

“His purpose was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms,” (Ephesians 3:10; BSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read the Book of Mark in a version you don’t normally read. (You can find various versions for free in the YouVersion app, which can be installed on your phone, desktop computer, laptop or tablet.)
  • As you read, note all the ways Jesus revealed the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Now, ask yourself how you are living like Christ?
  • Ask the Father to make you more like Christ and realize this is not just asking for a transformative character change (sanctification), but an ability to manifest His Power and Glory. (Matthew 10)

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, show me how Jesus lived “normally” in the Spirit, as I read the Book of Mark (or just Matthew 10). Show me how I ought to be living daily to manifest the Kingdom of God in my life. I know that living righteously and in holiness is important, but you also said to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons. Give me a grace, a faith and a boldness to live like this in front of everybody. Make me more like Christ in word, in character and in action. Let America be saved! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that America will be saved as the Church lives like Jesus lived!

The Fullness of Christ

The Church has now come to a place that we have not been in for many centuries. Maybe for 1900 years. We now have the ability, the potential, to represent Christ fully. We did not have that potential before when we were not moving in all five of these anointings – apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher. The change is going to be very, very dramatic. Now, we can do the works that Jesus did, and greater works, because the fullness of His anointings are now flowing through the Body of Christ in the earth. What does that look like? It probably looks like all the signs and wonders we’ve been prophesying about for the last 10 years. We’re going to do what He did. We can now do what He did!

“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.” (Romans 8:19; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

• Holy Spirit likes to work within a cluster of individuals. God loves unity! Cry out for the five-fold to start to come together in churches of all denominations all across this land!
• Intercede for the manifestation of the gifts to flow, revealing Jesus to the lost.
• Intercede for the coming to pass of prophetic words spoken over the last twenty years about our nation and God’s Kingdom transformation.
• Intercede for the five-fold teams to find solutions to problems in cities and regions. Some of these are systemic poverty, homelessness, violence, sex-trafficking, the opiod crisis, and many other social justice issues.
• Call for the righteous social justice movement to begin – God’s people receiving God-solutions birthed in prayer rooms among unified five-fold ministers seeking Him. City and regional leaders will work together and shut false, humanistic ideas out!

A prayer you can pray:

Holy Spirit, how You love to work with the cluster! How You love it when the saints are one, even as You and Jesus and the Father are One. Lord, cause our five-fold-gifted leaders to be drawn to one another like magnets. It is time! Cities will change and regions won’t have a chance but to give way to Your five-fold movement. Societal issues we have interceded over for decades will now see miraculous solutions delivered from heaven to the saints. We will shut out the ungodly, humanistic social justice answers that leave us empty and worse off than before. God-answers will flow from the new social justice move of God and America will never be the same! (Pray for some of the issues listed above that afflict your city and region.) Praise to your holy name, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Five-fold answers to societal issues are being downloaded for our cities and regions!

Wearing the Proper Mantle

Leaders are going to be redefined, because culturally we have pushed them into roles that don’t match the gifting and anointing that God gave them. It’s going to shake some things up. I think there are even those leading large ministries and they are about to be redefined. This will be a healthy thing. When I stopped being a Pastor, I could get some real pastors pastoring people. Everything worked better when I stopped trying to be the healer and began to operate as the Apostle. I coordinated and governed, administrated, and made sure there were some true pastor gifts pastoring the people. When I got redefined, others got redefined. They were no longer my “Assistant Pastors” or “Associates”. I was the Apostle and they were Pastors. Then, the people became more pastoral and apostolic. The pastors, teachers, evangelists, prophets, and I multiplied ourselves and everything went to a new level.

“For it [the Kingdom of God] will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ … For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” (Matthew 25:14-16,20-21a,29; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

• Call for the equipping gifts to be made clearly manifest in the Body of Christ.
• Ask the Lord to help people know their gifts with clarity.
• Let us offer our gifts back to God. Ask Him if He wants you to do more with your gifts.
• Let the pastors make room for the apostles. The apostolic gift is unique and the church should truly not function without it.
• Humbly ask the Lord to bring to repentance those who have named themselves Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and/or Teacher. Let God bestow the names and let the rest of us watch for the actions of a person’s life that leads them to be called by a title.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we call for the equipping gifts to be made clearly manifest across the Body of Christ. Help us, especially our equipping leaders, know what gifts they have, so we can equip the saints, multiply, and bear much fruit! Let those who are pastors add an apostle to their ministry team. Divinely put these relationships together, Lord. Let all those repent who have been running around calling themselves apostles, prophets, pastors, evangelists, and teachers, who are not. Let us prefer one another in love, respect the gifts and callings in one another, and minister accordingly. We have much to do as You hasten the day of Your coming. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree the five-fold mantling will increase the function of the Church across America.

Gifts are Not Positions or Titles

A remnant company is about to become apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral, and teaching. The Church is about to manifest the fullness of Christ-anointings in the earth. The synergy that is going to take place is going to multiply the anointing many times. In the context of these five anointings, people are going to be redefined, especially leaders. Since we took “gifts” and made them “positions” or “titles”, if you lead a congregation in the past culture and were the leader, you were a “pastor”. For example, if someone is not really a “pastor” gift, they will hurt others when they counsel them or otherwise try to nurture them. Generals, like Patton, (apostles) will slap you on the side of the head and call you a coward. Pastors don’t do that. They help them. Someone needs to bring healing and someone needs to see the long-term big picture.

“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.” (Romans 12:4-5a; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

• Ask God to make evident and increase the “apostle” gifts to the Body of Christ. These individuals are natural leaders. They are generals. They are strong and decisive. They establish new, often never-seen-before things. They lead the way into the fray, they provide order and direction, and we love to follow them. Call them forth.
• Intercede for the revealing of the “prophet” gifts within the Ekklesia. They help us see and know what Holy Spirit is doing in the Kingdom. They operate in dreams, visions, discernment, and deliverance. They give words of encouragement and correction. They call forth destinies and help keep us on track and on time. Call them forth.
• Declare the day of the “evangelist” is here. These outside-the-walls gifted ones save the lost, drive out demons, and display the power of God to the unbelievers first. They motivate others to reap the harvest, as well. Call them forth.
• Pray for the Lord to multiply and provide “pastor” gifts to the Church. These individuals may never stand in a pulpit, but they are the healers, the nurturers, the encouragers, and the counselors. They are the “love” gifts. Call them forth.
• Finally, ask the Lord for the true “teachers” to arise. These study the Word to show themselves approved before God and man. They know the Word of God inside out, backward, and forward, and, sometimes, in the Greek and Hebrew. They have let Holy Spirit teach them, so they can break the Word down for others, rightly dividing it in truth. They provide the foundation of our faith. Call them forth.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I call forth the five-fold grace gifts into the Body of Christ. I call forth the “apostle” gifts. We need those faith-filled leaders who will lead us without hesitation in the advancement of the Kingdom in the earth. I call forth the “prophet” gifts who will help us see and hear and know the ways of God, Your purposes and Your timing. I call forth the “evangelist” gifts. These are those who will help model for us the reaping of the harvests of souls. We call for the “pastor” gifts who will heal us, nurture us, love us, and encourage us. Finally, we call forth the “teacher” gifts. Those who can teach us how to know and understand Your Word accurately and in depth are a treasure. We call them all to manifest in this season of multiplication and acceleration, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Church of America will manifest the fullness of the five-fold grace gifts for Kingdom advancement!

A Fullness of Anointing in the Church

The five-fold gifts are not just offices. They are anointings. We took gifts, anointings, and we made them positions in the local church. When you make them positions, it’s about “me”. When you understand these are gifts and anointings, then you understand it permeates the entire body. You may not be a “Prophet”, but you can be prophetic. You may not be an “Apostle”, but you can be apostolic. You may not be an “Evangelist”, but you can win the lost. You may not be a “Pastor”, but you can nurture and heal people. You may not be a “Teacher”, but you can come alongside somebody and teach them and train them in the ways of the Lord. You can walk them through scripture. So, what we are about to experience is not a new anointing in leaders. We are about to experience a fullness of anointing in the Church.

“Later, the apostles began to argue about which one of them was the most important. But Jesus said to them, “The kings of the world rule over their people, and those who have authority over others want to be called ‘the great providers for the people.’ But you must not be like that. The one with the most authority among you should act as if he is the least important. The one who leads should be like one who serves.” (Luke 22:24-26; ERV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

• Order is important to God. He has a place for each one of us to function in His Kingdom. Decree God’s Divine Order into His people, especially His leadership.
• Intercede for those who have titled themselves as Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and/or Teacher. Ask God to make clear to these individuals who they really are, so they can function properly.
• Intercede for those who aren’t sure who they are. Ask God to reveal His grace-gift to them, so they can confidently express Christ in their gift.
• Pray for all those who believe that the gifts and callings ended with the original Apostles. Most of these Believers love God’s Word. Pray for these that Jesus will cause their eyes to be opened to the fullness of the Word, so they can repent and help expand the Kingdom of God. They are needed in this hour!
• Ask God to strengthen and increase revelation and anointing for those already confidently and humbly walking in their proper calling in both the Church and in the Marketplace.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we need help with the revelation of the five-fold ministry. Some are calling themselves a title they are not able to operate in. This is confusing to the part of the Body of Christ trying to operate together with them. Some are not aware of their calling. Some don’t believe Apostles and Prophets are grace-gifts in operation today! We need to overcome the enemy’s confusion over this and operate properly in our places for maximum Kingdom advancement. Encourage those who are walking in their proper place and help the rest of these leaders to get there quickly. In Jesus’ loving name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree the Five-fold grace gifts into proper positioning with revelation for the sake of Kingdom-advancement!

The Five-fold Need Each Other

Since we now have all five anointings of Christ manifesting, there is going to be a synergy of these giftings. Pastors will pastor better, because there are apostles, prophets, evangelists and teachers. Teachers will teach better and with a different emphasis and understanding, because they are linked to apostles and prophets. Evangelists are going to evangelize more effectively, because they are aligned with apostles and prophets. They’re not going to waste their time in one place, because the prophets are going to say, “No, go over here.” Apostles can’t be effective leaders without the rest of the gifts alongside him. A general can’t lead an army if there’s no army! Everything is going to go to a new level.

“The eye can never say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you.’ The head can’t say to the feet, ‘I don’t need you.’” (1 Corinthians 12:21: NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read all of 1 Corinthians, chapter 12. Let it soak in.
  • Think of those in the Body of Christ that have different gifts than you. Do you have trouble with the way their gift manifests? Talk to the Lord about it. Ask Him to help you appreciate and even need their gift. Pray for them with God’s heart for them.
  • Ask God to show you how to work together with other giftings.
  • Plan a day to prayer walk around a local school. Purposely invite others you would not normally partner with. Watch how God mixes your anointings together for transformation and kingdom advancement.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, open up fresh truth to me as I read 1 Corinthians, chapter 12. As I read, bring into my thoughts those in my congregation that have seemed less becoming to me in their gifts. Show me how to appreciate how You have created them and how their gift can work together with mine for Kingdom expansion. (Pray for one or two people you don’t always get along with. Plan a day to pray around a local school. Invite someone to join you that has a different gift mix than you do. Let God show you how your gifts work together.) Thank you, Jesus, for showing us how unity can help transform our community, and how our love for one another can draw the lost. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the grace-gifts are meant to work together to reveal Christ to our communities.

The Five-Fold Expression

For many years we only saw the manifestations in the church of Pastor, Evangelist and Teacher. We could win people. We could nurture and love on people. We could heal people and teach people. We couldn’t go to the next level, but that’s changed! In the last 20-30 years, He’s restored understanding of the prophet, and, eventually, the Apostle. Now, we have the fullness of Christ functioning in the Church, so we can now reveal Him. That’s what the five-fold giftings are all about. The Church has not had the ability since the book of Acts to fully manifest who He is. The Church has not had the ability to fulfill all of the commission that Christ gave to us, because we can only do that when we have all of that functioning.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:18-20; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank Him for revealing in this generation the five-fold expression of Christ in the Church – Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher.
  • Thank Him that we can now go to another level of revealing Christ in the earth.
  • Declare the Kingdom of God will now be advanced in America at a more rapid pace.
  • Declare that strongholds in America will now be dealt with, such as systemic poverty, violence, racial conflict, sexual perversion, and government corruption.
  • Decree that the captives will be set free!

A prayer you can pray:

Thank you, Lord, for revealing Christ in His five-fold manifestation in this generation. Now, the Church can operate at a new level of grace, power and revelation. We can disciple the nation and the nations of the earth as You send us forth! In America, we will watch the advancement of Your Kingdom more rapidly than ever before from state to state. Every stronghold we have prayed about over the last twenty or so years will now have to give way to the Kingdom advancers. Corruption, violence, poverty, sexual perversion, and racism, among other things, we decree are unraveling before the prayers of the saints. The captive ones will now be set free in Jesus’ name! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Church will disciple America through Christ’s authority!

Jesus is Not Just a Lamb

Jesus is not just Mary’s little lamb, He’s the Lion! He’s not just the Shepherd, He’s the Apostle. He’s not just the Lover, He’s the General. He’s the Conqueror. He’s the Ancient of Days. He’s not just Nurturer Jesus. He’s the Judge of the Whole Earth. He has love in His eyes, but He also has fire in His eyes. When He speaks, it sounds like the rushing of many waters, and when the words proceed forth from His mouth, they become a sword. You can only fully manifest Jesus when you have the fullness of the Christ anointings.

“Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’  Jesus replied, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.’” (Mathew 16:16-17; NIV)

 

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Jesus came to reveal the Father to the Jews first and then to the rest of the world. Ask God to open your eyes to see Him as He wants to reveal Himself to you.
  • Welcome Him as the powerful and terrifying Lion of Judah.
  • Welcome Him as the Great Apostle, General, Leader worthy to be followed.
  • Welcome Him as the One who conquers every foe!
  • Welcome Him as the Ancient of Days; the One who knows the end from the beginning, who is bringing His plan to fullness.
  • Welcome Him as the Judge of the Whole Earth, who is determined to save as many as possible from the fires of eternal separation from Himself.
  • Worship Him as Messiah, the Savior, and Redeemer, and say, “America shall be saved!”

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, you came to reveal the Father to the world, first to the Jews and then to the Gentiles. We welcome You as the powerful and terrifying Lion of Judah and the One who conquers every foe! We welcome You as the Great Apostle, General, Leader worthy to be followed. You are the Ancient of Days; the One who knows the end from the beginning, who is bringing Your plan to fullness. You are the Judge of the Whole Earth, who is determined to save as many as possible from the fires of eternal separation from Himself. You are Messiah, Savior, Redeemer! America shall be saved!

Today’s decree:

Jesus is revealing Himself in power and glory to the Church and America shall be saved!

The Fullness of the Christ Anointings

God has had to get us to the place that we could be restored. That is seen in Ephesians 4:11 – Prophet, Apostle, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. These are the five Christ-anointings. Christ broke Himself down into five anointings and he gave those to the Church, so we could manifest Him in the earth. You can only see the fullness of His anointing in the earth with all of those in operation. So, if you just have Pastor gifts, you are really only manifesting 20% of who Jesus is in the earth. This is the shepherd, the nurturer, the healer. Evangelists can win souls and disciple sheep, but even with an Apostle alongside, they can only manifest 40% of the fullness of Christ’s anointing. Can you see this?

“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:11-13; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell God that you want to see the fullness of Christ in the earth!
  • Cry out for the level of unity in the Body of Christ it will take for this to manifest.
  • If you know your primary gifting, ask God to add to you what is lacking, whether you are serving in a local church, a national ministry, in government or in the marketplace.
  • Intercede for those who are true evangelists. Pray that God will divinely direct them to where Holy Spirit is working and that the fish begin to jump into the boat.
  • Intercede for those who are truly pastors. Pray for a magnification of their ability to love, heal and restore.
  • Intercede for those who have the anointing of teachers. Pray that their revelation of the Word of God and ability to instruct will cause the Body to grow more quickly than ever in the history of the Church.
  • Intercede for those in the office of the prophet that their words would manifest miraculously and quickly in the earth.
  • Intercede for the apostles, that their great faith and leadership abilities will inspire the Ekklesia to overcome every obstacle encountered in the advancement of the Kingdom of God in the land and across the earth!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, let me see the fullness of the manifestation of Christ in the Church in in the earth. Grant us a grace for the unity we will need to walk together in the five-fold Christ-anointings. Add to my relationships those that I can work with to advance Your kingdom in my realm of influence. I intercede for the evangelists to bring in a supernatural harvest in supernatural ways. Grant the pastors a new level of love, deliverance, healing, and grace for the flock. Teach the teachers, Holy Spirit, unfolding Your living Word to them, so that we can mature! Let the prophets prophecy with truth, faith and accuracy, so that the fear of the Lord falls across the land. Let the apostles be full of faith and grace to motivate the Ekklesia to move every mountain and stronghold out of the way of the advancement of the Church. In Jesus perfect name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The five-fold manifestation of Christ is in active operation and our nation will see Jesus!

Let Christ Be Seen

We have just come through a fullness, a “kairos” time, and God restored some things to the Church. He restored the five-fold Christ-anointings, which we’ll talk about in the days to come. He’s restored some things prophetically and apostolically. He’s moved us into another level of the way we are supposed to function. Ephesians 1 talks about “fullness of times (kairos-es) where all things are summed up in Christ.” All of the seasons (Kairos opportunities that we succeeded in going through) that He’s walking us through are being added up. When we are finished, things are supposed to look like Christ. He’s restoring things back to the way things are supposed to be where Christ can be seen in the earth in His fullness.

“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. He did this when he revealed to us the secret of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ, toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ—the things in heaven and the things on earth.” (Ephesians 1:7-9; NET)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship God for His restoration of the revelation of the five-fold ministries to the Church.
  • Read Ephesians 1.
  • Pray Ephesians 1 out loud as a prophetic word. Pray verses 17-22 over yourself, over the congregation you belong to, and over Believers across the nation.
  • Ask God to reveal to the Church the secrets of what He is restoring to the earth in this season, so that we can partner with Him to hasten the day Christ is fully revealed.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I worship You for restoring to the Body of Christ the revelation of the five-fold Christ-anointings. We are learning to walk together in them, and the Church is growing stronger and bolder and more functional, as we do. (Read Ephesians 1 out loud. Pray Ephesians 1 out loud as a prophetic word. Pray verses 17-22 over yourself, over the congregation you belong to, and over Believers across the nation.) Lord, what is it that You are restoring to the Church now? Grant us eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is up to. I ask You to draw us into partnership with You, so that we may together hasten the day that Jesus is revealed in the earth! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree the American Church is interceding and working with God toward the administration of the summing up of all things in Christ!
