The Tides of Prayer and The Manna
Transcript of prophetic word given during the prayer watch on 09-10-12:
"The Tides of Prayer and The Manna"
"Children, I have been teaching you. Everyday, as you come to Me, I have been teaching you to pray. I have been teaching you the things that I want done My way. I have been teaching you the things that flow from My heart. These things, to you, might seem strange, but it is only strange to you that have not learned to move in the things of My Spirit, in this hour. The more that you yield to Me, the more that I can reveal to you, the more that I can pour through you, and accomplish My Purpose in this hour. I want Children that are given over to Me. I want Children that are yielded to Me in every way. I want vessels that I can move through, speak through. I want vessels that I can even be weak through. What does that mean? It means that when you are weak, I am strong. When My burdens, and My things come upon you, you will also bear both weakness and strength. Does not My tides of intercession both ebb and flow? My burdens will go lighter, and My burdens will go higher. My burdens also go softer, and My burdens go stronger. With every ebb and wane of My intercession tide, you will be so sensitive, you will move with Me more in synchronicity, for I am synchronizing you into a new flow. I bring periods of rest, and I bring periods of great surging and growth. Then I bring rest and growth. Rest and growth. I am teaching you and training you, by My Spirit, to move with Me."
"Do not learn the ways of the world anymore. Do not learn the patterns and forms of men, even in their prayer positions. No, I want you to be a design of My commission. I want you to pick up My Burden, and My Care, and My Flow. I want you to see those things I see in this hour, and there are few that walk in that. There are few that truly sense, and are sensitive to even My burdens and cares. But I am looking for those that will bear My Burdens in this hour. Yes, there are times, when I will say, look at the needs of the world, and pray. But I am looking for those that will look at My Needs, and pray. Very few look upon Me, and minister to Me, to My Needs, and to My Desires. For do you not know, that My Desires are higher than men's fires? My desires, and My Burdens come from My Love. They come from My Care, because I bare the nations in My Heart. I bear all men. I bore you on the Cross, and then I gave you to the Father, when I presented all things to Him, when I rose from the grave. Now you are given over to Him. Now I intercede for you, before Him, each day."
"Children, come before Me, each day. Present yourself to Me, a new way, and let My Burdens flow through you, as they flow through Me. For in those burdens of Mine, you will find liberty and rest, and refreshing as well. For My Burdens are easy. My Burdens are light. My Burdens are right, for the penalty of those burdens have been paid, and are no longer weighted out, because I paid the fullness of their weight. Now, we pray at the Gate. We pray those things in, that I have accomplished, at the Throne. But Children, I do not desire that these burdens would be just My own. But that My House would carry My Heart, and My Weight. That My House would be awakened and sensitive, at My Gate. I desire a Church that is not late. So, I am awakening you, new. I am teaching you, through My Ebbs, and My Tides, and My Flowings, and My Blowings, and My Growings. All of these things are unusual to you, because to this generation, they are new. But to My Generation, in My Habitation, they are not new, they are ME- living inside of you. I am not like you. I, and My Father, and My Spirit, are One. As you yield over to us, you shall be one, like we are One, and you shall be like us. You shall not be like mere men. You shall be more like heaven. I am teaching you to be like heaven is. I am teaching you to be in harmony with Me, and out of harmony with this world."
"As You are in harmony with Me, true Harmony, and true Unity shall begin. For My Unity is not like the unity that men desire. My Unity is higher. My Unity is of My Spirit, is of My Heart, is of My Father. As you surrender and flow in My Heart, you all shall flow in My Heart, and then My Unity can start. Then My Tides can come and go, and upon entire congregations I can fall and flow. Oh, for I want waves of My Spirit, moving back and forth, in My House. Waves of Intercession. Waves of Joy. Waves of Liberty. Waves of Healing. Waves of My Heart beating through many, as One. Oh, I have Waves coming, Children. One by one, waves shall break out among you. Oh, everywhere you go, let Me go. Let Me out. Let Me out, My Way. Let Me come and pray! Give Me first place in your day, and I shall fulfill My Promises in every way! For as you fulfill My desires, I shall yours. You will have time to do all those things that you desire to do, in this hour. Oh, for this hour was born for you, and you were born for it, because everything that I do is in harmony with My Will and My creation. Children, you are blessed in your station. You are blessed in Me. You are blessed in My Father. My Spirit blesses you this day. You are blessed in the city. You are blessed as you go. You are blessed because it is in Me, that you flow. For in My Life, there is blessing and life. As you have chosen Me as your better portion, you also flow in the newness of My Life. Learn of Me. Sit before Me, and let Me open things up to you a new way. Let Me show you the things I have longed to reveal, a new way. Oh, for My Church is going to leap and shout. She is going to break out greatly in the days ahead. Oh Children, I have only begun to break open My Heavenly Bread. I have daily portions for you. I have Rhema nuggets, and Manna that you know not of, that is falling all around you, but you do not see it. But I shall open your eyes to see, your daily measures that I have waiting for you. For I shall release them everyday, as you come before Me, and as you pray. You shall eat of Me. You shall drink of Me. You shall feast before Me, even in prayer. You shall climb every stair. You shall move as one voice with Me."
Patrick - here are some scriptures for the prophecy the Lord just gave to us:
2 Corinthians 13:3 Since you desire and seek [perceptible] proof of the Christ Who speaks in and through me. [For He] is not weak and feeble in dealing with you, but is a mighty power within you; 4 For though He was crucified in weakness, yet He goes on living by the power of God. And though we too are weak in Him [as He was humanly weak], yet in dealing with you [we shall show ourselves] alive and strong in [fellowship with] Him by the power of God. AMP
2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! 10 So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength). AMP
Tide of Prayer:
Psalms 118:5 Pushed to the wall, I called to God; from the wide open spaces, he answered. God's now at my side and I'm not afraid; who would dare lay a hand on me? God's my strong champion; I flick off my enemies like flies. Far better to take refuge in God than trust in people; Far better to take refuge in God than trust in celebrities. Hemmed in by barbarians, in God's name I rubbed their faces in the dirt; Hemmed in and with no way out, in God's name I rubbed their faces in the dirt; Like swarming bees, like wild prairie fire, they hemmed me in; in God's name I rubbed their faces in the dirt. I was right on the cliff-edge, ready to fall, when God grabbed and held me. God's my strength, he's also my song, and now he's my salvation. Hear the shouts, hear the triumph songs in the camp of the saved? "The hand of God has turned the tide! The hand of God is raised in victory! The hand of God has turned the tide!"
Christ the intercessor for all men:
Isaiah 53:11 He shall see [the fruit] of the travail of His soul and be satisfied; by His knowledge of Himself [which He possesses and imparts to others] shall My [uncompromisingly] righteous One, My Servant, justify many and make many righteous (upright and in right standing with God), for He shall bear their iniquities and their guilt [with the consequences, says the Lord]. 12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great [kings and rulers], and He shall divide the spoil with the mighty, because He poured out His life unto death, and [He let Himself] be regarded as a criminal and be numbered with the transgressors; yet He bore [and took away] the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors (the rebellious).
1 Timothy 2:1 FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men, 2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. 3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
Psalms 78:21 Therefore, when the Lord heard, He was [full of] wrath; a fire was kindled against Jacob, His anger mounted up against Israel, 22 Because in God they believed not [they relied not on Him, they adhered not to Him], and they trusted not in His salvation (His power to save). 23 Yet He commanded the clouds above and opened the doors of heaven; 24 And He rained down upon them manna to eat and gave them heaven's grain. 25 Everyone ate the bread of the mighty [man ate angels' food]; God sent them meat in abundance. 26 He let forth the east wind to blow in the heavens, and by His power He guided the south wind.
John 6:31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as the Scripture says, He gave them bread out of heaven to eat. 32 Jesus then said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Moses did not give you the Bread from heaven [what Moses gave you was not the Bread from heaven], but it is My Father Who gives you the true heavenly Bread. 33 For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world. 34 Then they said to Him, Lord, give us this bread always (all the time)! 35 Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time). 36 But [as] I told you, although you have seen Me, still you do not believe and trust and have faith. 37 All whom My Father gives (entrusts) to Me will come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, no never, reject one of them who comes to Me]. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me. 39 And this is the will of Him Who sent Me, that I should not lose any of all that He has given Me, but that I should give new life and raise [them all] up at the last day. 53 And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood]. 54 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink. 56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him. 57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me. 58 This is the Bread that came down from heaven. It is not like the manna which our forefathers ate, and yet died; he who takes this Bread for his food shall live forever.
We thank you, Father. Lord, that your winds are blowing in the earth. Your winds are blowing in the Church. You are bringing fresh bread to us, fresh truth, fresh spiritual bread from heaven. The bread that heaven eats, that we must also eat, the heavenly food, as much as we eat the earthly food for our physical bodies. We need more of the manna that come from You! We must eat of You! We don't want to go back to only what we see or know. We want to know more of You! The things from heaven are eternal. They have more value. Help us to get in the Spirit more, to seek You more! What has eternal value and purpose can only be found in the Spirit, and we must set our affections upon the things above, and not only on what's on the earth! Lord, we desire You more! Feed us Your heavenly meal, Your heavenly manna, everyday! We will eat every word that comes from Your mouth, to us! Help us to see the value of being with You, more than the value of the things around us on the earth. Lord, let Your very Life Force, the Bread, that flows through us, will cause us to take on Your Life, even our bodies. We are all sustained by Your daily Bread, as we spend time with You and pray.
Exodus 16:14 And when the dew had gone, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a fine, round and flake-like thing, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they said one to another, Manna [What is it?]. For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, This is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is what the Lord has commanded: Let every man gather of it as much as he will need, an omer for each person, according to the number of your persons; take it, every man for those in his tent. 17 The [people] did so, and gathered, some more, some less. 18 When they measured it with an omer, he who gathered much had nothing over, and he who gathered little had no lack; each gathered according to his need.
Nehemiah 9:15 You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger and brought water for them out of the rock for their thirst; and You told them to go in and possess the land You had sworn to give them.
We thank you Father, that the manna of old was a substitute until You came, but now we can eat everyday. We can partake of You, as we walk with You. As we speak of You, we are partaking. As we share with others, we are breaking bread with others. We thank you for the Life that is in Your bread, Lord.
Revelations 2:17 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches). To him who overcomes (conquers), I will give to eat of the manna that is hidden, and I will give him a white stone with a new name engraved on the stone, which no one knows or understands except he who receives it.
We thank you, Father, that we, the Church, are coming into a fresh revelation, to see You a new way. We will overcome and prevail in prayer, we will eat this manna that comes from You. The bread that has Eternal value. Saving value. Healing value. Prized more than anything on this earth. You are the manna, Jesus. We will pursue the things of Your Spirit.
1 Kings 19:1 AHAB TOLD Jezebel all that Elijah had done and how he had slain all the prophets [of Baal] with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow. 3 Then he was afraid and arose and went for his life and came to Beersheba of Judah [over eighty miles, and out of Jezebel's realm] and left his servant there. 4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a lone broom or juniper tree and asked that he might die. He said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am no better than my fathers. 5 As he lay asleep under the broom or juniper tree, behold, an angel touched him and said to him, Arise and eat. 6 He looked, and behold, there was a cake baked on the coals, and a bottle of water at his head. And he ate and drank and lay down again. 7 The angel of the Lord came the second time and touched him and said, Arise and eat, for the journey is too great for you. 8 So he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and nights to Horeb, the mount of God.
Elijah ate this meal, and it enabled him to go in the strength of that food for 40 days and nights to God's Mount. The Lord said to us here, that we were to seek Him for 30 days, and what we received from Him over these 30 days, these things would strengthen us, and empower us, and impart into us what we needed to go the journey of the next 30 years, into the purposes of God for us. God has portioned out the measures for us all, each day. God will unfold it everyday, as we step it out. 30 years! 30 days is a small price to pay for 30 years. To have the divine infusion from the Lord to carry us further, so that we won't be weak, fearful, unable, or unstable, but strong!
Deuteronomy 8:1 ALL THE commandments which I command you this day you shall be watchful to do, that you may live and multiply and go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to give to your fathers. 2 And you shall [earnestly] remember all the way which the Lord your God led you these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and to prove you, to know what was in your [mind and] heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. 3 And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you recognize and personally know that man does not live by bread only, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. 4 Your clothing did not become old upon you nor did your feet swell these forty years. 5 Know also in your [minds and] hearts that, as a man disciplines and instructs his son, so the Lord your God disciplines and instructs you. 6 So you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and [reverently] fear Him. 7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; 8 A land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey; 9 A land in which you shall eat food without shortage and lack nothing in it; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. 10 When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the Lord your God for all the good land which He has given you. 11 Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His precepts, and His statutes which I command you today, 12 Lest when you have eaten and are full, and have built goodly houses and live in them, 13 And when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all you have is multiplied, 14 Then your [minds and] hearts be lifted up and you forget the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, 15 Who led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, but Who brought you forth water out of the flinty rock, 16 Who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. 17 And beware lest you say in your [mind and] heart, My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth. 18 But you shall [earnestly] remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. 19 And if you forget the Lord your God and walk after other gods and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish. 20 Like the nations which the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God.
The Lord will provide all that we need, and we will be sustained by Him, as we seek Him daily. These 30 days will put within us, what we need to walk with Him, and to walk in His Divine Life, Divine Sustenance and Supply, and Provision. He is teaching us to draw from His Spirit, for every need and supply. This whole chapter teaches you how to draw from the Spirit, and it manifests in the natural realm, for every need, and for every supply. It comes from the Spirit, and it manifests in the natural. So, the Lord allows us to hunger, and He allows circumstances, (Deuteronomy 8:3) so that we recognize that our earthly needs are not fed by just the things that we can go into the store and by to meet the needs. But our earthly needs are actually fed by the Word that comes out of His mouth, the Rhema, that we get everyday, and it then comes into being in the natural realm, and it will supply our needs each day. The Rhema ignites the Word, which then becomes flesh to us and for us. Our clothing will not become old on us, and our feet also will not swell either, everything we have will also multiply. He will supply, multiply, and everything will last and live, as He, the Manna, also lives in us.
God uses signs and wonders to teach us to depend on Him, for His supernatural provision in our lives. To keep the manna, and put it in the ark for future generations, that was God's teaching tool for man....to teach the future generations that He is the One that supplies for their daily needs. We need to remember these things, they are the same for us today. We have a better covenant, the Living Bread, the Living Manna, Jesus Christ. He sustains us. His Light is in us. His Life is in us, and will flow as we continue to walk with Him!
1 Corinthians 10:3 And all [of them] ate the same spiritual (supernaturally given) food, 4 And they all drank the same spiritual (supernaturally given) drink. For they drank from a spiritual Rock which followed them [produced by the sole power of God Himself without natural instrumentality], and the Rock was Christ.
Hebrews 7:22 In keeping with [the oath's greater strength and force], Jesus has become the Guarantee of a better (stronger) agreement [a more excellent and more advantageous covenant].
Hebrews 9:10 For [the ceremonies] deal only with clean and unclean meats and drinks and different washings, [mere] external rules and regulations for the body imposed to tide the worshipers over until the time of setting things straight [of reformation, of the complete new order when Christ, the Messiah, shall establish the reality of what these things foreshadow--a better covenant].
