(Transcript of the Prayer and Prophecy given at SOG from 03-28-14)
The short podcast of this transcript, can be listened to at:
Lord, we just press
with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of our strength. You said, Father,
that we shall love you, with all our heart, all our soul, all our strength, and
all that is within us. Lord, we desire.....we just draw near to you, and that
you would draw nearer to us. Even though you are in us, Lord, we desire a
greater revelation of who you are in us, and in our midst. We desire to go
deeper into that secret place, Lord, of your embrace, to be with you, and to
know you, and to be more like you.
Lord, we just open
our spirit wide to you. Jesus, we just surrender. We surrender everything to
you. Lord, we long for those deep places, that are calling unto the deep
places, that are calling unto the deep places.......Lord, we long for those
deep places to open in our being, Lord, that we can go deeper. Lord you are
wanting us to wake up. You are wanting us to open up. You are wanting us to
surrender to you, that you might inhabit us fully.
So Lord, tonight, we
are here, and we say, yes! We agree, Lord, and we say, come! Holy Spirit, have
your way tonight. Lead us deeper. We want to see you Lord. We want to smell
you, and taste you, and touch you, and know you are good! We want all of our
spiritual senses alive and aware of you! There is no one else that can change
us. There is no one else but you! Lord, we are utterly dependent on you. We long
to know you.
Lord, we thank you
for your Presence, you are here to heal tonight. You are present to deliver.
You are present to save. You are present to teach us, and reveal more to us,
and transform us! We thank you for what you are doing in this city. We thank
you for the moving of the angels in this city. We thank you, Father, for the
war in the heavens and the war in the earth that is setting everything in place
in this region, for what you are going to do in the days, and weeks, and years
You are in
preparation! You are preparing everything Father. We stay in those footsteps
that you have mapped out for us, Lord. We just step into the next one tonight.
We step into that footstep, that place that you have arranged for us to get to
tonight, to stand in it, and to receive insight, Lord. We just stand in that
place, and we receive your grace. The grace that you have for us tonight, that
is written on our scroll. As it is in heaven, let it be on the earth, according
to your design for us!
We long to look into
those pages, Lord, to read what is written on those scrolls for us to do, and
accomplish, and become. We step in further by faith- we look to see- we listen
to hear- we press to know. You said, Father, that you want people that are proactive.
You want people that respond, and are responsive to you. We respond to you,
Holy Spirit. have your way tonight, Holy Spirit. We long for those deeper
places. Lord, lift us!
The Spirit begins
to move in the room:
Let the atmosphere of
Heaven just move through this room right now, Lord. That your Winds of
Refreshing would begin to come in. Lord, that you would begin to lift all of
the day's busyness off, all the tasks, all the demands that are put on us for
our day. Let it all just be blown out by your Spirit. Let the Refreshing Winds
begin to stir in, and through your people right now Lord. That you would begin
to whirl around your people right now.
Let the Gentle
Breezes of Your Spirit refresh, revive, and strengthen right now. You can just
feel the angels moving all around you right now. You can feel the refreshing,
just a gentle breeze right now whirling around you. Right now, really
slow.....Lord, let the Cadence of Heaven increase in this place. We thank you
for the refreshing that you have for your people to give them strength, to
build them further, Lord. We thank you! We draw! We draw from your Presence
right now, Father!
We draw that strength
in. We breathe it in. We take a deep breath, and we breathe in the atmosphere
of Heaven. We breathe in your refreshing that you send to your people.
We take it in, and we
respond to your Spirit right now, that we might be changed further, in your
Presence Lord. We thank you Lord. We thank you Lord. We thank you Father. We
thank you Father, for your Presence Lord. We thank you Lord. We thank you
The angels are
touching you right now. They are ministering to you. They are ministering
spirits sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. They are touching you right
now. Receive strength! Receive healing in your body! Receive grace! Receive
answers to questions you have had today. Receive solutions to problems that
came your way. Receive His supply. He has a supply for you. He is leading you
day by day, step by step.....
The Lord then
takes over and speaks at 7:10:
"As you listen
and look, you will know the way. Day by day, step by step, as you listen and
look, you will know the way. For I have called you to walk with Me in this
hour. I have called you to know My Way. To know My will. To know My power. I
have already gave you the course. I have already set your feet on the path. I
have already opened the door, and you are already going through. But keep going
Children, keep going, you know what to do. I have already made it clear to you.
Your feet are on My Path. I have already given you your sign. You already know
My Design, and I challenge you to believe."
"I challenge you
to conceive it, and to move through, and into it more. I am strengthening you
everyday, for the next day. Every night as you lay on your bed, I give you
more. I minister to you, but you must believe the things that I say to you. The
things that I show to you. The things that I reveal, you must believe them, and
you must step into them. For My Words are Doors that for you to enter through.
My Word is a Vehicle for you to move in this earth through. My Word is your
food and your drink. I want you to partake of it. I want you to move in My
Word. I want you to act on it, and I want you to go forth with joy, not
wondering how it is going to come! Not knowing in what way, and when, it will
come when you begin!"
"When you step
out, I will step out! When you act, I will act! When you go, I will go! I am
waiting for you! You know the way to go! You have My Word and My Promise. You
have had your sign, but you must go in My Direction. You must go in 100%
security and trust in My Word. Do not doubt the things that you have heard. Do
not listen to the council of men. I am the one that sends you. I am the one
that will supply you. I am the one that will guide you, and that will fulfill
every promise to you, because I am the one that leads you. I want you to trust
Me! Trust My lead, and surrender to My call, for you know that I have called
you. You know that you have walked away many times, but I have brought you back
into line, and you have your sign, now walk in it. Walk in it, and see what I
will do, on behalf of you."
"My angels have
charge over you. Everything that I allow to come to you each day, are those
things that come to prepare the way. That prepare you for the next step, but
also that prepare the ground ahead of you, so you can step into it. Do not
think that these circumstances that are adverse to you, are opposing you. No!
They are shaping you! They are pushing you forward. They are causing you to
press into Me for more clarity. I am using these things to usher you in! I am
bringing great, great clarity, so you can win! But you must trust My leading,
even though you don't understand. Even though things might not make sense, and
how does this fit with that? I know what I am doing!"
"You must step
it out. You must step it out, and know that it's Me, and have joy in the midst
of it! Have joy with Me in the midst of the journey, for it is Me! I am the one
that is making the way, everyday! make good use of your time. Make good use of
your situations, and thank Me in the midst of it, because in the midst of those
situations, I have provision for you! I have miracles for you. I have blessing
for you. I have a supply that will not run dry. But you must trust Me, and you
must not ask Me, why? This is the very things that I will use that will launch
you so you can fly, because I am going to thrust you out into My harvest
"I am going to
thrust you out into the camp of the enemy, the one that steals, so that you can
get back those things that I have ordained for you! I am going to thrust you
out, and you are going to rout every enemy out! But you are going to have to
step it out, and you are going to have to not doubt, but you are going to run,
and leap, and shout, as I work it out! Be strong, and be of good courage, and
do not fear, because I am already thrusting you out this year! This is the year
when you shall move further in My momentum, and you shall inherit those things
that you have longed to see. They are coming into your view. They are coming
into your view. Keep watch with Me.
Keep watch with Me, and you will see the things come into their reality,
because it's Me! I will do it, as you do it, and as you do it with Me, it will
be done entirely."
- We will do it with
you, Father! We thank you, Lord. You are on the move, Jesus! You are on the
move, and we are on the move, and you are thrusting us out with the angels
Lord. We are moving, as you are moving in this city, in Jesus Name!
Job 36:15 He delivers
the afflicted in their affliction and opens their ears [to His voice] in
Psalms 94:12 Blessed
(happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O
Lord, and teach out of Your law, 13 That You may give him power to keep himself
calm in the days of adversity, until the [inevitable] pit of corruption is dug
for the wicked.
Psalms 24:10 If you
faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.
Acts 3:19 So repent
(change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins
may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of
recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from
the presence of the Lord; 20 And that He may send [to you] the Christ (the
Messiah), Who before was designated and appointed for you--even Jesus,
Isaiah 28:12 To these
[complaining Jews the Lord] had said, This is the true rest [the way to true
comfort and happiness] that you shall give to the weary, and, This is the
[true] refreshing--yet they would not listen [to His teaching].
Isaiah 30:19 O people
who dwell in Zion at Jerusalem, you will weep no more. He will surely be
gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.
20 And though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of
affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide Himself any more, but your eyes will
constantly behold your Teacher. 21 And your ears will hear a word behind you,
saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when
you turn to the left.
Job 29:21 Men
listened to me and waited and kept silence for my counsel. 22 After I spoke,
they did not speak again, and my speech dropped upon them [like a refreshing
shower]. 23 And they waited for me as for the rain, and they opened their
mouths wide as for the spring rain.
1 Corinthians 1:4 I
thank my God at all times for you because of the grace (the favor and spiritual
blessing) of God which was bestowed on you in Christ Jesus, 5 [So] that in Him
in every respect you were enriched, in full power and readiness of speech [to
speak of your faith] and complete knowledge and illumination [to give you full
insight into its meaning]. 6 In this way [our] witnessing concerning Christ
(the Messiah) was so confirmed and established and made sure in you 7 That you
are not [consciously] falling behind or lacking in any special spiritual
endowment or Christian grace the reception of which is due to the power of
divine grace operating in your souls by the Holy Spirit], while you wait and
watch [constantly living in hope] for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and
[His] being made visible to all. 8 And He will establish you to the end [keep
you steadfast, give you strength, and guarantee your vindication; He will be
your warrant against all accusation or indictment so that you will be]
guiltless and irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
9 God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His
promise, and He can be depended on); by Him you were called into companionship
and participation with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
- Be encouraged! You
shall arrive at the destination at the right time, and be found faithful in it
