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!

Redemptive Cycles

God doesn’t just restore things once. He restores things back to His plan and purpose in what I call redemptive cycles. We are always in some process of restoring something in the planet earth back to the church in the way it is supposed to be. Another word for this is “reformation.” Reformation means to correct or straighten. Something has gotten crooked or off, like a broken bone. It means to amend something, when it’s not just the way it is supposed to be. We shouldn’t think of reformation as just in the context of the “Great Reformation,” because we are always going through seasons of restoring and reforming things, and straightening things out. He started in Genesis at the Fall and He is going to correct everything.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” (1 Peter 5:10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell God you want Him to restore what needs restoring in your generation. No more “times around the mountain.” Ask Him how you can partner with Him in this.
  • Declare a reformation season for America, because God is saying through the prophets that it is a reformation season for this nation.
  • Declare that marriages and families are being restored.
  • Declare that children that grew up in Christian homes are returning to their families and the Church.
  • Declare a straightening out of racism in America. Say there will be honor where honor is due.
  • Say that gender identities are being straightened out and men and women will know who God created them to be.
  • Decree a re-setting of speaking and reporting the truth in media.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, so many things are out of alignment with You in this generation. I would feel overwhelmed if I did not know You work things out in cycles. However, I don’t want to see us go “around the mountain again”, not realizing Your promises in this generation. I want to partner with You to fulfill Your will. I declare this is a reformation season for America, because the prophets are saying it is! I declare that marriages and families are being restored! I declare that children that grew up in Christian homes are returning to their families and the Church! I declare a straightening out of racism in America and that honor will be given where honor is due! I say that that gender identities are being straightened out and men and women will know who God created them to be! I decree a re-setting of speaking and reporting the truth in media, because they are largely fueling the divisions in America today. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that where the nation got off track, God is re-setting it!

Fullness of Time

In Acts, chapter 3, God talks about “seasons of restoration of all things.” The Greek word there means to reconstitute. That means to move things back to where they were supposed to operate or function, such as the constitution of an organization or the way a human body is supposed to operate. A season is a “chronos”. In every season you have a window of opportunity. That is a “kairos” season. This is when you reap the fullness of that season. This is not a guaranteed time, but rather an opportune time – an opportunity is being provided to reap the fullness of the season.

“So change the way you think and act, and turn [to God] to have your sins removed. Then times will come when the Lord will refresh you. He will send you Jesus, whom he has appointed to be the Christ.” (Acts 3:19-20; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Repent of complacency, for a kairos time is upon us.
  • Chronos and kairos are spiritual and natural words and meanings. Ask God to open your eyes for any “investments” you have made in prior seasons, in the natural and in the spiritual, where you can expect a harvest now. These could be financial, relational, fields of study, and/or spiritual preparation.
  • Ask God to restore things out of alignment back to His original intent. Do this for personal things out of order – you health, finances, relationships, etc. Also, call national matters to line up with God’s will and the U. S. Constitution.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I repent for any complacency in my life. Break any lukewarmness and all effects of delay off me. Show me where investments I made in the past, even when I wasn’t conscience of making them, now have the potential for multiplied harvest. Make me expectant in this kairos season.  Restore my health, my finances, and my relationships. Restore my faith, the operation of spiritual gifts, and my ability to hear Your voice. Restore national confidence in our founding documents, such as our U.S. Constitution, as well as Your plan and purpose for America. Restore wise, godly men and women to public service and replace the arrogant, proud, and self-seeking. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The fullness of time has come and God is realigning matters in the United States back to the Constitutional standard.

Can You See Him Now?

Let’s take a good, hard look at Jesus. How well do we really know Him? We just prayed through the last few days of His life, applying those truths to our relationships with Him. Job thought He knew God. That is, until God showed up and asked Him a series of questions: “Where were you when…? Did you…? Do you know…? Are you able…?” When God revealed Himself in full reality before Job, it changed his life forever. Though he had lost everything, he repented to God for his pride and ignorance. He realized that he really knew little about God and His ways until the very moment God confronted him. He had known what others had told him about God, but now, he knew Him for himself, and he was forever changed. The nation needs a fresh revelation of God. Go get it!

“You told me to listen while you spoke and to try to answer your questions. In the past I knew only what others had told me, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.” (Job 42:4-5; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The way we “see” Jesus now is through the Bible. Start reading it in a new way – to receive a revelation of Who He is.
  • Forgive when you see things in that Bible that were once taught to you out of context, or where God was misrepresented. Embrace the truth. Look up the Greek and Hebrew meanings of words using a concordance or Bible app.
  • As you read, let God ask you the types of questions he asked Job. Know you do not have answers. You don’t know, but He does. Let this knowledge cause you to worship Him.
  • Let Him show you how to pray and what to do to make Him known in your sphere of influence.

A prayer you can pray:

I want to see God! Show me, Father, as I read Your Word. Holy Spirit reveal truth to me in those precious words. Lord, I forgive those who knew in part and taught in part. Forgive me for not checking some things out for myself. Correct my spiritual vision and knowledge of You, as I study to show myself approved. Let me not be afraid for You to ask me questions about Yourself that I have no answers to. I will worship You and let You teach me! Teach me to pray all over again in new and fresh ways, so that I touch Your heart, even as You touch mine. Set me in the harvest fields in my sphere of influence, introducing others to Jesus. America will be saved! Amen.

Today’s decree:

He is freshly revealing Himself to the Ekklesia through His Word!

Walking in the Holy Spirit

“Jesus Christ was filled with the Holy Spirit. He could have gone through the beatings, the crucifixion, and all of the pain in sovereign health. He could have shown Himself obviously to be God in the midst of the attacks against Him. But God had a different plan, So, Jesus willingly laid down His life and He took it up again three days later. 50 days after His resurrection, He gave that same Spirit to His disciples, who were waiting for His promise right where He told them to be. Since that day, every Believer who welcomes the Holy Spirit’s baptism and walks in obedience to Him can live expressing the same works that Jesus did.” (Robert Heidler)1

“No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.” (John 10:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Did you think Jesus was killed by the Roman soldiers? Did you think He was killed by the Jewish priests or Satan himself? They could never have killed Him! Look again.
  • Are you regularly waiting before Him; listening for Him; watching for His activities around You? Choose to do so from this time forward.
  • If you are filled with the Holy Spirit, do you know you can walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, just like Jesus did? Ask Him to manifest through you to those that need to see Jesus and know the Father.
  • Declare, “The sons of God are being revealed!”

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, let this revelation sink deep down in me. I have often thought that You were killed by others. I have even said so at times, even though I know what You said in John 10:18. There is a fresh Holy Spirit wind blowing over Your Word and drawing me to seek You in a deeper way. What I have been taught In Church is not enough. Teach me, Holy Spirit. Lead me, guide me and direct me, as I lean on, trust in and rely on You. Manifest Your reality to those around me that need to see Jesus. Draw them to the Father, then put me in their path. I want to be one of the “sons” of God that are being revealed all across America – those that heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons, and preach the good news of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The outpouring in America is waiting for the Ekklesia to reveal Him!

The Silent Day

“Jesus is silent on Saturday. The women have anointed his body and placed it in Joseph’s tomb.  The cadaver of Christ is as mute as the stone which guards it. He spoke much on Friday. He will liberate the slaves of death on Sunday.  But on Saturday, Jesus is silent. Jesus is silent. God is silent. Saturday is silent. Jesus knew God would not leave him alone in the grave. You need to know, God will not leave you alone with your struggles.  His silence is not his absence, inactivity is never apathy. Saturdays have their purpose. They let us feel the full force of God’s strength. You do what Jesus did. Lie still. Stay silent. Trust God.” (Max Lucado)1

“You will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.” (Acts 2:27; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Sit or lie down very still today and rest in God’s holy presence.
  • Ask Him to speak to You – His love for you, His plans for you and your loved ones. Feel the force of His strength in the silence.
  • Repent, if you are having trouble being still and knowing He is God. He knows. Ask Him to help you desire these quiet moments with Him.
  • Intercede quietly and confidently for God to hover over our nation, over those who need Him, over circumstances that seem so out of control. In the stillness, feel His determination to complete the tasks He has started for America.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, most people, including Believers, struggle to sit in quiet. We are so used to activity, even prayer activity. It feels foreign to “do nothing.” But, you did nothing, seemingly, on the day Jesus rested in that tomb. You were quiet right before the greatest victory the planet has ever experienced! You weren’t checked out, or angry, or rejecting man. You were waiting for the exact right moment to undo all the works of the evil one – in a powerful surprise moment! Show me how to rest and wait on You and Your perfect moments. Show me how to intercede for a nation that seems out of control right now. Show me how You are resting, waiting, for that perfect salvation moment. You are coming! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that Jesus will not leave me alone in my struggles. He is coming to save me and save America at the exact right time!

The Cross

“Suddenly the center head yanked itself up. A roar sliced the silence. ‘It is finished.’ The centurion looked around at the rocks that had fallen and the sky that had blackened. He turned and stared at the soldiers as they stared at Jesus with frozen faces. He turned and watched as the eyes of Jesus lifted and looked toward home. He listened as the parched lips parted and the swollen tongue spoke for the last time…’Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!’ Had the centurion not said it, the soldiers would have. Had the centurion not said it, the rocks would have—as would have the angels, the stars, or even the demons. But he did say it. It fell to a nameless foreigner to state what they all knew. ‘Truly this man was the Son of God!’(Max Lucado)1

“…For the joy set before him, Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Exalt Jesus, for He was ridiculed, beaten, and crucified for your
  • Read the full crucifixion story in Matthew 27.
  • Pray for God to reveal Jesus to every unsaved person you know. Cry out for the harvest.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I will never be able to thank you enough for sending Your Son to give His life in exchange for mine. It makes me fall apart every time I think about it! It is so hard ot comprehend a love like Yours. Give me an even greater revelation of the cost as I read Matthew 27. Get the Ekklesia and me ready to disciple the multitudes that are about to come into the Kingdom. (Pray for God to reveal Jesus to every unsaved person you know.) Amen.

Today’s decree:

I will shout it to the nation, “Jesus is the Son of God!”

Holy Thursday

We have entered the season when Jesus, our Christ, died on the cross, resurrected from the dead and opened the door to eternal life. We enter into new life the moment we say we believe in all the Jesus did for us. We are now citizens of His Kingdom – Kingdom-advancers! Today is what traditional denominations call Holy Thursday. It is the day Jesus introduced His pending personal sacrifice and introduced communion to them.

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. ‘This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,’ he said to them.  ‘Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.’ When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.” (Mark 14:22-26; NIV)|

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Father for sending Jesus – to save us, deliver us, heal us, and teach us the ways of His Kingdom.
  • If you have the ability to take communion today, go get some bread and wine or juice. Include friends or family members or enjoy it alone with the Lord. Just follow the scripture above. Be aware of Him and the exchange of His sinless life for yours.
  • Believe you are healed as you partake of the blood of the new covenant.
  • Believe you are delivered of challenging circumstances as you remember He came to give you life and that abundantly!
  • Worship Him.

A prayer you can pray:

Follow the prayer points above today. The focus is on receiving communion together with Him and receiving all of the benefits of your salvation!

Today’s decree:

I am a Kingdom-advancer!
