In Hebrews 10:24-25 the Apostle Paul tells us, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching.
The Church will stand triumphant, because Jesus is coming back for a Glorious Church, and I believe we are going to see another great spiritual awakening that will sweep across America and will sweep across the nations of the Earth. Every country will be shaken, but the Kingdom of God will come out stronger than before. The world may try to stop us, the world may try to squash the Church, they can try to take away our Bibles, they can try to remove everybody from meeting, but they will never stop the Body of Christ. The Church Triumphant shall stand.
When the Glory of God comes it will change the nature of who we really are. The Glory of God will not just change the inside but the outside as well. What is delaying the Glory, you might ask? Samson is a type of the twenty-first century church. Samson had seven locks of hair. The Nazarene Covenant was that none of the locks could be cut (Judges 13:5). Samson’s strength was not his hair, the strength was in the VOW! There are some broken vows of the Glory. We are seeing in the days we are living in, prophetically, an unrepentant Church. The Church has become so unrepentant, and it parallels the United States of America. The United States has slept in the beds of our enemies, and now are enemies are rising up and opposing the United States and that’s why we have to pray for our President, our nation, and the world!
Each one of those locks of Samson’s hair represents a government structure of the Church, and one by one the responsibility of the True Prophets is to help restore those locks back to the Church. There is a spirit of perversion that has entered into the Church and has weaved itself into the four walls of the Church. These are different areas, one area is greed, God will bless you financially, but that should not be your motive to bring revival, so, God is shifting that.
Another area is the spirit of abortion, we all want to argue our theology, even discuss how many people have died from the Coronavirus, but why is that since January almost 18 million babies have been murdered and we call it ABORTION! What is sad is that of those babies there is no telling who would have been the next Prophet or Apostle, the next President, or the next schoolteacher, or bus driver or whatever the case may be. And we want to argue our silly philosophies, doctrines, and our theologies, instead of saying, “God how can we get closer to You as a Godly Nation, as a people and turn America back to the heart of God?”
But one of the locks was, the spirit of perversion would come into Davidic House, In Acts 15:16, God said in the last days, He would restore the Tabernacle of David or the Davidic lineage. But the House of David is perverted, we’ve got more corrupt and false prophets than we have ever had. There is a rise of corrupt prophets, now days, everybody is a prophet, everybody who enters into ministry is a prophet or wants to be called a prophet. There’s a prophet on every corner and every street and that’s not the case. People love the title of “prophet,” but they don’t have the substance. And we don’t deal even with our own house privately. We all want to judge the “White House,” but we don’t want to deal with our house (the Temple of God).
The Bible says Judgment begins in the “House or the Temple of God,” (1Peter 4:17). Some people want to cast judgment and throw stones at this President, and may even have or what you feel are good reasons to do so, but you need to first look at your own house, before you start casting judgment at the White House!
There will be even more opposition against this President but remember that opposition is just an indication of “Breakthrough.” Any time this opposition flares up, it is an indication of breakthrough. My past victories are an indication that I’m about to be promoted, so we’re going to see that with President Trump. So, I have had several people asking me what is coming next, since this Covid-19/Coronavirus, the shaking of the nations. We have just come through 4 months of this and I believe is a preparation season for the Body of Christ for the next 3 months, there will be a time of recovery, and at the latter 4 months, we will see God begin to reconcile things that were not reconciled. Then we will go into the next 7 months of the New Year.
Why is it important and essential to have the Glory of God in our lives? God desires more now than ever to visit His people. There are many dimensions in the Glory realm, such as the anointing. We need to begin to see and tap into a realm of the Spirit, where you begin to sense and know in your spirit that your prayers are being answered, you’re not praying amiss, you’re not praying in error, you’re not praying in the wrong direction, and then you will sense the closeness of God’s Heart.
It’s time for God’s people to make appointments with Him. Appointments with God are very important. God has an appointment with you, and you have an appointment with God! In Exodus chapter 3, Moses had an appointment with God. Moses had a prophetic encounter with the Glory of God, with Divinity of God, and with the Deity of God.
God changes the nature of that bush to let Moses know that he is not a failure. Has that ever happened to you? Sometimes we feel like we have made so many mistakes and we have failed God miserably and we have destroyed the Blueprint of God for our lives, that He will never be able to use us again. How can we really get back to God and get refocused?
One thing about God is, He will take the nobodies and make them into somebodies. Moses had previously violated everything that was High and Holy, He marred the Blueprint of God. He was trying to bring deliverance to his own people, not realizing that we can’t deliver anybody by ourselves. But Moses has an encounter with Divinity, the Deity of God, the Presence of God, the Glory of God, and the Power of God. Those who are truly walking by faith, get to a place in their life when they say, “There’s got to be more! There’s got to be another realm! There’s got to be another level in God”
Well, there is. There is another level where we can walk in the places we have never walked before. God revealed Himself to Moses, but He also reveals to Moses who he is! Moses sees the bush burning, but that’s not the miracle, because in the desert, it got so hot at times, that many bushes would burn and then turn to ashes. The miracle was that the bush burned and continued to burn, but it was never consumed. In other words, God changed the nature of that bush, so it could accommodate His Voice, His Presence, and His Power.
God changed Moses’ nature, he was a murderer, but he would become a deliverer to the Nation of Israel. So, when God changed the nature of the bush to reveal “I AM THAT I AM,” to Moses, He was saying to Moses just like He is saying to you and me, “I’VE GOT YOUR BACK!” I’m going speak through you, I going to send people to help you! God sent Moses back to Egypt to deliver His people out of Egyptian bondage. But first, God had to get Moses’ attention through that burning bush that would not be consumed and let him know, that what I did through this bush, I can do through you.
What am I saying to you? I’m saying, “Divine Appointments!” Some of you have heard me use this term over the years. These Divine Appointments are going to special from now on if you will allow them to be. God has an appointment with you and me today, right now! Remember that serving unlocks the Supernatural Power of God in your life!
Second Kings 2:11 reads, “And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into Heaven.” God is ready for the Elisha’s. People ask the question sometimes,” How can I get the anointing on my life?” Or, “How can I get the anointing the way you have the anointing in your life?” The answer is: “By serving and allowing God to use you right where you are!”
Paul said in Ephesians 6:8, “Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man does, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.” In other words, whatever good thing you make happen for someone else, the lord will make happen for you!
In Matthew 6:17-18 Jesus said, “But you, when you fast, anoint you head, and wash your face. That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret and your Father, Who sees in secret, shall reward you openly.” A lot of times when we think about serving a man or woman of God, we think, “Well, they can do it themselves.” When you think like that, you are missing out on making a deposit in your own life. You’re missing out on impartations. Any time you have an opportunity to serve a real man or woman of God, there are deposits and impartations that will come to you. My life has changed because of that. There is a Purpose for the Glory and how the Glory affects your Life.
Acts 7:55-56 says, But he (Stephen), being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into Heaven, and saw the Glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God. And said, “Behold, I see the Heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.” This is the only passage of Scripture in the Bible where it says that Jesus stood up to His Feet. This is so powerful, that the outcome was that Jesus stood up to His Feet. Now, I want you to understand that there are consequences in losing the Glory, whatever you do, don’t lose the anointing in your life! And I’ll tell you right now, there are Christians right now who are playing with fire and I’m cautioning you. Honor the Lord with all of your heart and obey and do what His Word says to do.
Carla and I want you to know that we are praying for you daily. On May 31, we reopened the Church and we had a tremendous visitation from the Lord. That visitation came as a result of making an appointment with the Lord every day and then bring the Church together to pray and interceded with us. We want to encourage you to keep standing on God’s Word. Remember, we have a “Better Covenant established upon “Better Promises” all because of Jesus! As always, I want to encourage to stay in faith, stay in prayer, stay in the Word; and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and remember “God loves you; we love you and JESUS IS LORD!”
