Multiplying the Image of Jesus

I don’t like some people’s watered-down expression of Christianity in the New Testament and what should be a New Testament church. We’re supposed to be multiplying the image of Jesus, Himself. We’re supposed to do so in such a way that when we come together the very fullness of Christ, Himself, is manifested in the earth. When we get together, the fullness of Jesus, Himself, is to be seen on planet earth! This awakening is about to explode in fullness. Mark 16 is about to explode in fullness – sons and daughters filled with the Spirit, healing the sick, casting out demons, speaking with new tongues. It won’t happen by the hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands. It will happen by the millions!

“’I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters,’ declares the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ever heard the saying, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree?” Determine that that will be you in relationship with the Father.
  • Ask God to create His New Testament Church in the nation and around the world, full of mini Jesus people.
  • Get going! Lay hands on the sick and expect their recovery. Cast out demons and expect them to exit! Invite other Believers to meet Holy Spirit, if they haven’t already. Expect that they will be filled with Him! Ask God for a prayer language, if you don’t already have one. Pray in yours more, if you do.
  • Gather with other like-hearted ekklesia members and act together like the Church we are supposed to be – some and daughters of God acting like sons and daughters of God!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I want to be that child that looks like they were cloned from their parent – I want to “look” so much like You that people know I am Yours! Pour Your Spirit out on your sons and daughters, until there are multitudes of mini Jesus people all over the place. We have our assignment from Mark 16. Anoint us to DO it! Back up the faith we have, even if it is just a little bit. We must act like You, Jesus, to multiply the Kingdom and expand it in the nation. Show us who to gather with, so we are encouraged, effective, and growing into the image of Christ more and more every day. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that we are the sons and daughters of God, expressing Him as we go about our daily activities until multitudes know Him, also.

Awakening the Dawn – Day 4: “The Call|Rise Up”

We are getting ready to move into another major expression of Mark 16 in the earth, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Jesus had been to the cross and gotten His family back. Now, He came back to the disciples and said, “Now, you go multiply My family again, just like I told you to in Genesis, because I have put this thing back on track! You multiply My image in the earth!” “In 1997, Men stood in the gap. In 2017, women Rise Up.”

“He said to them, ‘Go throughout the whole world and preach the gospel to all people. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. Believers will be given the power to perform miracles: they will drive out demons in my name; they will speak in strange tongues; if they pick up snakes or drink any poison, they will not be harmed; they will place their hands on sick people, and these will get well.’” (Mark 16: 15-18; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • In 1997, God’s sons were called to Washington, D.C., to meet on the mall and make a statement that they, as men, were taking God’s call to them seriously. Thank God for the men of God and their covenant commitment to the Lord.
  • Today, the daughters are being called to the same place to make a statement that the women are equally serious about our covenant with Him.
  • Declare that God’s standards for, and image of, a woman are about to be reflected in His daughters.
  • Declare that women are being sent into the harvest fields clothed with purity, loveliness, authority, and the miraculous.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank you for the men of God who met publicly in our nation’s capital in 1997 to declare their commitment to You and their families. Today, they women are doing the same at “The Call|Rise Up”. We say that Your daughters are going to show what a woman is meant to be. We say Your image will be reflected in Your lovely ladies. I declare that women are being sent forward into the harvest with power, miracles, authority, and purity. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the nation’s image of women will change after they see how women of God reflect Him today on the Mall.

Awaken the Dawn – Day 3: “I’ve Come to Get My Family Back!”

In Matthew 16, Jesus said “I will build My church…” It does not mean to build a structure. It’s not the word “edify.” “Church” here is the word for “family”. “I will build a lineage. I will build a household. I will create family.” Jesus was declaring in Matthew 16 that He had some to get the family back! “I have come to restore the mandate in Genesis to multiply sons and daughters of the Most High. I’ve come to get a Bride. I’ve come to get the individuals that I can truly relate to as family and friends. I have come to restore the Genesis mandate through them.”

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The Body of Christ is coming together in a very unique way on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. this weekend. Envision it – many generations, races, denominations, and backgrounds all worshiping together!
  • Worship Him for the family He has built!
  • Worship Him for the members of the family that are about to come in.
  • Declare that the current Church is the stable place the Father can build His Church from.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I am using my imagination to really see the gathering on the National Mall today. I see a family that is every color, denomination, age, and background – beautiful in its diverse worship of You! I worship You for this wonderful family! I worship You for the family members You are about to add to this wonderful family. I declare that the current Church is a good foundation for you to build upon. I welcome the increase, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the gates of hell will not be able to prevail against the Church, the family of God!

“Awaken the Dawn” – Day 2: A Temporary Hold

God temporarily lost His family when the fall of man occurred. He never stopped loving us and He remained completely committed to us. However, He lost us in the sense that we lost His nature and His breath. An estrangement and a separation came. We also lost the dominion and the ekklesia (governing authority). It was all put on hold – until now. Christ’s coming opened the way for the restoration of God’s family. “Awaken the Dawn” can help usher in a new season of Harvest – the best one yet!

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:8-10; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship Him for He is worthy to be worshiped!
  • Embrace His love for you.
  • Decree that those you love will know His love!
  • Invite God into your family (even if you’re a family of one.)
  • Invite Him into this nation!
  • Declare the estrangement and separation between God and many lost souls are coming to an end as the effect of “Awaken the Dawn” sweeps over the nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I worship You, because You are worthy of my worship! I worship You together with all of the thousands of Believers on the National Mall at “Awaken the Dawn”. I open my heart fully to your love. I decree that all those I love will soon come to know You and love You, as well! I invite You into my family and into this nation. I declare that the effect of “Awaken the Dawn” will open the way for those now estranged and separated from You to be reconciled to You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the grace of God is washing over the nation from the worship in D.C., and His workmanship is about to be fully revealed!

Awaken the Dawn – New Apostolic Movement

The apostolic is the lead role in God’s government on the earth. It’s the highest ranking in the Kingdom of God’s government on the earth. It’s the Admiral, it’s the General, it’s the leader of various expressions of the Body of Christ all over the earth. If we are going to go to another level of the apostolic anointing in the earth, that means the Ekklesia is about to take on a whole new level of authority, dominion, understanding, government, and rule. We are about to step into a whole new place of revelation and begin to do what we were made to do from the beginning – steward, govern, and manage this planet for Father God. Now, you bring the Kingdom to earth!

“Let your Kingdom come. Let your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10; NHEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Awaken the Dawn” begins today! A Main Stage is set up for corporate worship, and 50 tents – one for each state – are set up on the National Mall dedicated to the worship of the only one True God for the next four days. Lift this gathering and its attendees up. Pray as the Lord leads.
  • Worship ushers in the anointing. Ask God to let today be the first day of a new level of anointing and authority for the Church, as we worship as a nation in the seat of our national government.
  • Worship God yourself. Worship over the nation. Worship over your state.
  • Ask God to increase your anointing and authority to share the Gospel and declare that His Kingdom has come into this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I know You are already focused on “Awaken the Dawn” today. It was dreamed up by You and is being carried out by those that hear Your voice and love You very much! I do pray that all goes well. Take care of each of the participants coming from all 50 states. Enjoy the worship and the praise. Hear the cries of the hearts for the nation and the states. Increase the authority and anointing of Your worshiping Bride, so this nation will never be the same! Increase my authority and anointing, so I can be as effective as possible in this end-time harvest, Jesus. Amen!

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Kingdom of God is come and the Will of God is being done on earth as in heaven today in our nation’s capital!

What the Ekklesia Is All About

The concept of “ekklesia” was not a new concept in the book of Matthew. “Church” means “a legislative, governing group of people.” The concept of ekklesia was created when God looked at Adam and said, “I give you authority to rule this planet for me; you are my government down there.” The kingdom of heaven has a government on earth and it is called the “Adam-family.” He has said, “You are going to rule this for Me.”

“Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you.” (Luke 10:19; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God that you are a part of the Adam-family, redeemed by the blood of Jesus!
  • Declare that you are a part of God’s governing power on the earth.
  • Declare that you have had the ability to rule and reign with Him since the day you entered His Kingdom – the day of your salvation.
  • Expect that your intercession, when it aligns with His Word, as you declare it, will be effective to align heaven and earth.
  • Repent of fear. Don’t be afraid, Be bold and courageous, and change the nation and the world for Jesus!

A prayer you can pray:

Thank you, God that you grafted me into your family the day I accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Your desire is that we would work together with You like You wanted Adam and Eve to. You want me, as well as other members of Christ’s Bride, to govern with You and rule over our part of the earth. I will dwell in Your Word, so Holy Spirit has something in me to work with when You ask me to decree it! The Word of God in the mouth of your saints will change the world. It will secure Your Kingdom and change our nation. Grant me holy boldness and forgive me for ever walking in fear, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I have authority over all the power of the enemy and my intercession will change the nation if I am not afraid to walk in it!

We Are His Watchmen

God told Adam to keep and preserve the garden. This is the first mention of the word for “watchman”. They were to be the watchmen on the planet. Shamar. It means to preserve, to guard, and to protect. He was saying that they were the protectors and they would keep things in order. They were to be His management, His government, the stewardship over their new home. God told them He was giving them complete authority to rule over it.

“God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Determine to be a watchman, watching over yourself, your family, your neighborhood, and any other realm of influence God shows you. Determine to also watch over the nation in prayer.
  • As an “keeper of order”, ask the Lord for scripture to pray that protects your areas of responsibility – use them as the sword of the Lord.
  • Tell the enemy to back off, because you are going to use God’s Word against him.
  • Prophesy Isaiah 21:11, “Watchman, what is left of the night? When will the night be over?” Ask God to hasten the dawning of the new day, when you will see the results of the intercession you have been making.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I thank you that you created your people to be watchmen in the earth – watching over the realms of influence you have placed us in. I do not want to shirk my duties in this regard, so show me what you want me to see and protect. Show me how to guard and preserve what is important to You and to me. I know You have a national plan, as well, that I want to participate in. Give me scripture to use as a sword against the enemy. God’s Word is against you, Satan! I prophesy to the watchmen, “Watchman, what is left of the night? When will the night be over?” Keep me faithful to watch with You until the breaking of the new day, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that I will watch and pray and act in the dominion God has given me, until His glorious light is seen in this nation once again!

Praying for Las Vegas and Days to Come

God gave man dominion at the point of creation. He said that He would take care of the rest of the Kingdom, but Adam was going to manage or rule the part of the kingdom God placed him in. You are going to manage and steward the home I have placed you in. You are going to do that for Me. He gave him dominion and told him to rule or to manage or to govern. When you are placed in as a manager over something, you don’t always own it, but you manage it. We don’t own planet Earth, (the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof), but we are the stewards over it. We have been given an assignment.

“The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind.” (Psalm 115:16; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to shine His light in the darkness and reveal every detail of the Las Vegas shooting.
  • Pray for the complete and total healing of bodies, souls, and minds of the victims.
  • Ask God to reveal Jesus to the hurting. He is their Savior and deeply loves them.
  • Decree that there will be no more shootings of this type – no copycats.
  • Intercede for the Body of Christ to rise up and take seriously our assignment to govern our realms of authority!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, from the depths of the love You carry for all people, I ask You to pull the curtain of darkness back and reveal the truth about the shooting in Las Vegas. We ask for the whole truth to be seen quickly. I also pray that You would heal all of the innocent people that were harmed by the shooter. Heal their bodies, minds, and souls. Let them find You, if they don’t yet know You. Let them know the full depth of Your love for them. I decree that what happened in Las Vegas, NV, will never happen in the United States ever again! Jesus, call Your Body to rise up and realize how important it is to govern our realms of authority! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Ekklesia will have a revelation of the earth’s governance being ours, so we can partner with Him to stop the enemy’s advance! This is a life and death issue.

God Wants a Family

Adam was “like” God. He was as much like God as God could possibly have made him without reproducing Himself. Psalm 8 says he was a little lower than God. Why did God make Adam like Him, unlike the angels or all the rest of creation? We know the answer – He was after family. He didn’t want another trillion angels. He had all these other animals and other creatures. That’s not what He was after. All of that creation was to prepare the home for the man He was about to create in His image, in His likeness, crowned with His glory. All of this, so He could have family on planet Earth.

“Yet you made them inferior only to yourself; you crowned them with glory and honor. You appointed them rulers over everything you made; you placed them over all creation: sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too; the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas.” (Psalm 8:5-8; GNT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Knowing who we are as human beings, reunited with our Father, is critical for a Great Awakening. Let the revelation sink in.
  • The Moral Outcry is working to end abortion in our nation in our lifetime. Read about their work here.
  • Realize that ending abortion is more than a moral issue – it treats precious human beings like they have no value. Read Psalm 8:5-8 out loud and be overwhelmed with the value of a person!
  • Cry out for a Third Great Awakening!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, you are my Father! In embracing Jesus and His work on the cross, I have been adopted into Your family! I carry Your name and Your authority. I have access to all of Your resources. I am to represent You in every dealing with others, especially when I tell them about what Jesus did to reconcile them to You. They can be adopted, too! I dedicate myself to valuing human life from the conception to the grace. I will work toward the ending of abortion! The bigger our family gets, the more we will impact our nation. Give us a Great Awakening in America, Lord! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the family of God will know who they are and work together until abortion ends in our generation in America!

What Man Was Meant For

God made man in His image and likeness. “Image” is “salem”, which means “a shadow of something” or “a phantom or illusion”. In the literal sense, it means that man was made so much like God that it was illusionary. Man was crowned with God’s glory. Adam may have literally glowed with the Glory of God. Many scholars believe that when Adam lost the glory, this is why he saw his nakedness. I like to think that when all the animals and creation saw Adam walk by, they probably did a double-take, “Wow, for a minute there I thought that was God.”

“So God created humans in his image. In the image of God he created them. He created them male and female.” (Genesis 1:27; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship God for His original plan for man.
  • That longing in your soul for purity and sinlessness is deep in your DNA going all the way back to Adam. Let that desire propel you to repentance on a consistent basis. You can be free to be all that He created you to be. Be quick to repent.
  • See Him replace your sinful and iniquitous nature with a new turban on your head, and new, clean garments, and brand new shoes to share the Good News. Thank Him that His grace does the cleansing, it is not a a result of your works.
  • Worship Him for His ability to transform us into the image of Christ – the only image of us that He chooses to see.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I worship You for the amazing plan You came up with to create man as family for Yourself. I feel such a depth of sorrow that mankind failed You and separated ourselves from You. I feel the fathomless depth of Your love for us and it is breaking my heart! I want everyone I know to have this revelation. You sent Your son, Jesus, to make a way so our sin could be forgiven and we could be close family again! The gratefulness I feel is overwhelming! Your profound grace gave me clean clothes, new shoes, and wrapped clean thoughts around my head, like a turban. Thank you for seeing me in the image of Christ. I am forever grateful! Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Ekklesia will understand that we are made in the image of Christ and we are His sons and daughters – His family!
