Morning Prayer for Thursday, April 1, 2021

Annie led group in worship…
Jeannie…

So Holy Spirit, we welcome you this morning. We take on your thoughts and we take on your attitude. We welcome you this morning. Father, we just stank you. We thank you for your plan. We thank you for your goodness. We give you full reign today. We just still ourselves to hear you.

So I’m going to read from Mario’s blog this morning and I’m just going to start out that way. I don’t know about you, but when I look and see everything that’s happening right now, I can’t resist who God is. I mean, I literally can’t stay in a bad mood for too long. Now, it bugs me, but because I know who He is, I know He’s up to something. And I know He’s up to something great. And something ridiculous amazing, that’s going to be beyond anything we could ask or think. Because it’s in His Word everywhere. We’re going to talk about some things in His Word today about how He provides where the name to Jehovah Jireh originated and how it originated. (tongues) And every time God always moves when it looks like He’s not going to. And this is how we’re positioning ourselves when we pray. So this is from Mario’s blog this morning.

“There are some scary people in California. It’s 7:30 AM. Preachers are waiting outside of Christian Worship Center In Mantecka as if they were going to a rock concert? They know lunch has isn’t until noon, but here they are so excited to get one of the 1,200 seats inside that they showed up four and a half hours early. The doors were scheduled to open at 11 a.m. Yet, we have no choice but to open them a full hour early and by 10:50 a.m., the house is 80% full. This is happening now in California.”

The cloud the size of a man’s hand…

“…inside mega church pastor sat beside pastors of smaller churches. Love levels the field. Love levels the field. Tears flow. They are singing their hearts out. Why is there so much intensity and joy? It is because of the lockdown. For most, this is the first time in a year they’ve been able to be in a packed church with on-fire believers. It is not until now that they have come to realize how much they have missed just having church. This blog is about them. Not me. It’s about a mighty core of Christians with untapped power. What is it like to preach to an audience like this? They’re so open and hungry that my words are absorbed as fast as I can say them.”

Father, we let what’s happening… Let the hunger rise up. We yield to that hunger. We taste and we see that’s you’re good.

“Here’s the thing. My message is not great. I’m not the draw. They’re reaching up to God with unending passion. Their zeal is the primary thing. I can add very little to what God was already doing in them. It is now 12:30. We break out to eat inside. I tell them we will pray for them after lunch. When they come back inside, experts say that it is very likely that many will fail to come back in after they eat. It is the perfect break for them to just eat and then head home. After all, they are very busy leaders. The experts are dead wrong. Did you hear that? The experts are dead wrong. Did you hear that? Everyone came back. And, of course, miracles broke out on the remnant of God. They all reached out to Holy Spirit and were overwhelmed with more than they expected. There is not a square inch of this sanctuary that is not radiating with the glory of God. It feels like something is being born.”

The sleeping giant awakes…

“Americans have felt forgotten. They believe that their leaders have forsaken them. The same thing is happening in Manteca to pastors, businessmen and business women, even state senators, people who believe they have been forgotten. They believe their churches have forgotten them. These are the people who left Christian events that were nothing but compromise and human entertainment. They walked out sick at heart saying to one another, “There must be more than this.” There are millions more like these in towns and cities across America. The remnant is comparing notes. They’ve made up their minds. It will be an awakening or it will be nothing. We have made up our minds. It will be an awakening or it will be nothing. And thank God we’re at a place where without an awakening, we have nothing. And thank God the awakening is upon us. In fact, it’s already here. Watch out! These are pastors who are done with the smoke and mirrors of glitzy marketing. To the hypocritical leader, I say, “be afraid, be very afraid.”

You know, that’s what Jesus said to every hypocritical leader. Don’t you think it’s funny? Oh, Jesus is in the synagogue and He’s talking to these leaders and He’s saying, “If your father wasn’t the Devil, you would know who I am.”

“The remnant will not play church any longer. The demon-driven politicians should quake in their boots. The remnant will only obey the Bible and the US Constitution. They will no longer surrender to wicked policies. California was visited today. Now we will move on to a tent crusade.

Don’t you think it’s interesting that Paul who had an encounter on the road to Damascus made tents? I don’t know, there’s a riddle in that. I think that’s amazing. We’re all about to have massive, ridiculous Damascus moments.

“And the glory and the fire will only intensify. Be warned. The real remnant of God is here and they will soon rise unto the national stage.” Sleeping beauty will awake. Arise, shine for your light has come. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold darkness shall cover the earth and thick darkness, the peoples, but the Lord…”

Have you heard this a thousand times? It doesn’t matter what you say, but anything after that is really what you believe. Okay. So let’s read it through that filter right now.

“Arise shine for your light has come. And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth and thick darkness, the peoples. But the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will be seen upon you. And the nations shall come to your light and the kings to the brightness of your rising. Be warned, the real remnant of God is here and they will soon rise unto the national stage.”

So I had a plan today that didn’t quite come through. I wanted to play Maverick city music’s Jireh. But in wanting to play, that Holy Spirit ended up showing me like things that apply to right now. So in the song, Jireh, look it up. So, you know, it’s talking about how we’ve never been more loved than we are right now. Jireh, you are enough. And if you’re enough, we’re enough. Did you hear me? If God’s enough, then you’re enough. You’re enough for these times right now. You are. You’re up to bat.

So I looked up Jireh and it says here in the book of Genesis, Jehovah Jireh was a place in the land of Moriah. It was the location of the binding of Isaac, where God told Abraham to offer his son, Isaac, as a burnt offering. This event showed Abraham’s faith and Isaac’s trust in his Father. Abraham named the place after God provided a Ram to sacrifice in place of Isaac.

I started reading in Genesis 22. Think about what Abraham went through, even though a lot of it were his own, you know, stupid choices. Abraham, the guy that messed up a lot. Jeanie, the one who messes up a lot. God’s still completely and massively worked through him. So let’s think about this. So He gets a promise from Isaac. Then he messes up, ends up getting Ishmael and then waits for a really long time. And finally Isaac shows up. And it’s a joy, it’s a promise fulfilled. And then God says, “Oh, that promise is going away.” Does it kind of look like that right now in our country? Does it kind of look like that right now in our church? That its promise is going away, that the things we’ve contended for are going away? But that’s not what’s going on.

This is in Genesis 22. “After these events, God tested and proved Abraham and said to him, Abraham. And he said, here I am. God said, take now your own son, your only son, Isaac.” I mean the preciousness of a promise fulfilled. Whom you love and go to the region of Mariah.”

See, what I think is amazing is God already told him to go to the region that he knew would be named, “I’m providing,” but Abraham didn’t know that. So wherever God is telling you to go, and it looks like He’s not providing that place has already been named, “I’m providing.” Wherever God is telling you to go, His provision is already there, even though you don’t know it yet. “And offer Him there as a burnt offering.”

Wow! Burn it up. Get on fire.

“Upon one of the mountains of which I will tell you. So Abraham rose early in the morning.” Okay, that’s a relationship with God. He did it right away. “He saddled his donkey, took two of his young man with him. He brought Isaac, he brought the wood and he went to the place that God told them. And then in verse four, it says “On the third day, Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance.” Isn’t that cool? On the third day, Lazarus. Dead for three days. Jesus rose in three days. Abraham three days. It looked like it was over. It looked like it wasn’t going to happen. On the third day, Lazarus came back to life. On the third day, Jesus, the finished work was illustrated fully. On the third day, Abraham found the place where he was gonna sacrifice that promise. At least that’s what he thought. God is so consistent and He’s consistent now. He’s consistent in Minnesota. He’s consistent in the Twin Cities. Did you know, a year before all of this stuff happened with race and all the things started blowing up, Shawn … prophesied that the Twin Cities would be known for her race relations. God is doing something.

Can you imagine how tired Abraham must’ve been on the third day? Can you imagine what must’ve been going through his mind? And then on the third day, he finds the place where it looks like it’s going to end. The third day when Jesus rose and the third day when Lazarus came back to life was the third day when Abraham thought it was all going to end. When really it’s just beginning. Awakening is upon us. And it doesn’t matter how tired you are. It’s still here and it’s going to encourage you and strengthen you. Because in your weakness, He’s strong.

“Then Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid in on the shoulders of Isaac, his son. And he took the fire in his own hand and the knife and the two of them went on together. And Isaac said to Abraham, “my father,” and he said, “here I am, my son.” “See here are here are the fire in the woods, but where is the lamb for the burnt sacrifice?” Isn’t that interesting? Where is the lamb? On the third day, where is the lamb?

“Abraham said, my son, God, himself will provide a lamb for the burnt offering. So the two went on together. When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there. Then he laid the wood and he was preparing. We prepare our hearts just to lay it all down, to just give it all up to God, to just leave it all up to Him, because really that’s our only option right now. We’re out of options. He’s our only option.

“And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took hold of the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham, he answered here I am. And he said, do not lay your hand on the lad or anything to him. For now I know that you fear and revere God.”

So for God, this wasn’t about the promise. For God, it was about the heart of Abraham. Because God will never walk away from His promises. God was not going to walk away from Isaac. That was a promise from Him. He can’t go against His Word. He’s not going to kill His promises. It’s not in his character. He’s not going to deny the promises He’s made to the Twin Cities. He’s not going to deny the promises He made to you. He literally can’t do it. It’s not who He is.

“And from this day forward, Abraham called the name of that place, “The Lord will provide.” And it is said to this day on the Mount of the Lord, it will be provided.

You know, we’re all tired. It’s been rough. I’m telling you, He can’t let go of His promises to you. It’s impossible. We’ve been put through the ringer. And not just what’s been going on lately. You’ve probably been waiting for a long time. Abraham was waiting for a long time and then it looked like it finally happened. And then God said, Okay, now I want that too.” But God didn’t want the promise. He wanted his heart. And maybe he wanted Abraham to also be convinced that God had his heart. You know, He has our hearts because if He didn’t have our hearts, we would’ve given up by now. But if you can’t give up, it’s because you know He’s not letting go. I know you know that. Because you know your Dad and the Holy Spirit is ministering to you right now that great things are upon you. Great things are upon the Twin Cities. Great things are upon the church and our country. And the only reason why you can’t let go is because He lives in you. And the one who lives in you has never let go. What if the only reason you can’t let go is because your heart belongs to Him?

Lately I’ve been asking Him… I’ve been saying, “So why would you tell us to rise up when we’re all exhausted? I mean, it’s kind of counterintuitive, right?” I mean, when you are training a business unit for something, you take them on a retreat or you get them strong and you send them out strong. And God’s like, “I’m strong. That’s all you need.” So let’s hear about God doing great things. In Job 5. Okay, now, as I say this, I’m going to give you the ending before I give you the beginning. I’m going to go over a few scriptures about God doing great things and then we’re going to pray from this place. But I’m first going to tell you that there’s also scripture, that that’s not the whole story. Because God has done and will do great things. But His Word also says in John 14:12, “I assure you most solemnly I tell you if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do and he will do even greater things.” There’s no getting away from this. You are about to do greater things. I’m just here to tell you it doesn’t matter how you feel. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, you are about to do greater things. So let’s just surrender to it. Let’s just lay it on Him and let Him convince us and let them do it. In Daniel 11:32. “But the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits for God.” in Job 5:9, “Who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number? Who does great things past finding out. Yes, marvelous things without number. So stand still and see this great thing the Lord will do before your eyes now. God thunders marvelously with His voice. He does great things, which we cannot comprehend. The Lord has done great things for us. We are glad. Therefore hear Oh, Gentile nations and know, oh congregation, that great things I will do for them. Fear not, be glad and rejoice for the Lord has done great things.

I mean, I could go on and on. “Then our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues with singing. Then they sit among the nations. The Lord has done great things for them, for He who is almighty has done great things for me. The holy and holy is his name to be venerated. In His purity, majesty, and glory.

So right now we submit to your glory. We submit to your goodness. We acknowledge that Jesus was a man. You made him a man. And He was a demonstration of man fully submitted to God. And now He lives in us. And we are here to do great things. It is our assignment. And when we’re weak, He’s strong. When we’re tired, He refreshes us. And we will not be tired for long because His refreshing is eternal. It’s steadfast and it’s steady. So let’s just watch and let’s pray. (tongues) I thank you that every identity problem is being solved right now… the church, the church aligned, aligned with who she is… identity, identity, identity, identity, identity… you were made to do greater things… you are made to belong to Him to be loved, to heal the sick, to set the captives free… God knows and knew what He was doing when He made you a girl, when He made you a boy, when He gave you a promise, because it cannot deny His promise. He can’t do it. Just let Him minister to you. Just let Him speak to you. It’s just the right thing to say to get through to your heart for today. Holy Spirit, you minister greatness to us. You minister great things to us. You minister that you cannot walk away from your promise. You can’t do it. It’s not who you are.

Great revival coming out of the Twin Cities, where the Mississippi river and I 35 intersect and spilling over into the nation. Why has there been such a battle in the Twin Cities? Because great revival, massive awakening coming out of this area. Why did you put me in the Twin Cities? Because great revival, massive awakening coming out of this area. Let it begin today. The manifested glory of the goodness of God.

Barb…

Each member, Lord, each member carrying revival… no longer eyes turned outward, Father God, but turned in… inward… to the power of the Holy Spirit… for revival is within… revival is within … let that river of revival flow out of your people, Lord… it’s time to step in, step into that place… step into that grace. … let the fire of the Holy Spirit burn within you. Let the fire of the Holy Spirit burn within the church… all in the name of Jesus… it’s time to tame the tongue… you bring that tongue into alignment with the Word and the plan of God… let the words of your mouth be aligned with the truth in Jesus’ name… God is for you. Not against you. He has set you above, not beneath… you are the head. You are not the tail. The enemy is under your feet… it is for you to rise up in Him, glory to God…

Jeanne…

There was nothing left, but God that’s when the best things happened. So Father, we than you that we are in a position where there’s nothing left but you.

Barb…

Complete abandon, Father… No fear, no trepidation, Father God, but boldness, boldness… moving into destiny… a complete transformation, Father, of the face of this nation… a complete transformation of the face of this city, this state, God… a complete turn… from that branding of the enemy… I thank you, Father God, that we are branded by you. We are branded. This city of Minneapolis is branded by the Holy Ghost. Minneapolis is branded by revival… Minnesota is branded with revival… glory to God. There’s a move. There’s a move in this place. There’s a move on the streets. There’s a move in the churches. There’s a move, Father God… a move of your Spirit… your anointing flowing, cleansing … Lifting, father … for as the waters rise, Lord, it lifts all… it lifts all … as we rise up, oh, we lift all, glory to God… Yes, Father, we bend again today. We bend to your will… As Abraham laid his son on the alter, we lay ourselves down, we lay our lives down… we bend … we orient ourselves towards you…

Pastor Folu…

“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven, like a rushing violent wind and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Since March 22, 2021 is a date I will never forget. It was right here in this room. Just like my sisters have been praying and like we’re believing God for, it’s already happening. It’s not going to happen. It’s already happening. Just like the scripture said that day the Lord had been preparing me the Thursday of that Monday. It was a Monday night. This place there was about 82 people in this room, between here and online. And we’re in here praying, and this scripture came to life. It was almost 9 p.m. I was on the verge of closing the meeting and this wind, it started from right here. I’m standing right here and it almost blew me over, this mighty rushing wind. And it just swept through this place so fast. And I thought “what just happened?” There were some people up here. I said, “what just happened?” They said, “yes,” they felt it. There was a lady online… online at home! She felt the wind of the Spirit in her house! She said her son that was sleeping woke up and said, “What was that?” She said, her husband who was at work, the wind blew. There was a lady that came. She’s 71 years old. I pray with this lady all the time. She does on the side, taxes. She said she was so overwhelmed with all the taxes she’s been doing that day, that she almost did not come that evening to that healing meeting. But she said she was sitting in the back overwhelmed, just thinking about all the taxes, all this stuff she had to do. She said when that wind … she’s like, “Oh, everything is okay now. I love everybody. Life is good. All is well.” The peace of God, it was amazing. There was a lady that was sitting like kind of where my brothers are there. She said that when that wind hit her, she’s like, “well, who turned on the air condition?” Then all of a sudden, she’s like, “Oh,” this peace just overwhelmed her. Saints, just like my sisters have been praying, God is doing a new work. And it’s happening suddenly. So I speak that right down for you, for your house, for this church, for the church of Jesus, for what God has planned for Minnesota… suddenly in the name of Jesus, a sudden wind, a suddenness in the name of Jesus … And Father, I thank you for the great expectation, the great expectation in the hearts of your people. In the name of Jesus’… Annie, you are going to play a big part in this coming surge of the Spirit of God. You are playing a big part in that, sister. Receive it… when the day of Pentecost had full come… Saints, our day of Pentecost has come… It is not going to come. It has already come!

And they were all together in one place. Even right now, saints, even right now, there’s a suddenness that can happen. That is happening even right now in Jesus’ name. Receive it. Those of you that are online, the suddenness of God in Jesus’ name… suddenly a sound came from heaven like a mighty rushing violent wind and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Hallelujah … men and women filled with the Holy Ghost, possessed of the Holy Ghost… you know how people are possessed of the devil? We are possessed of God and we do things that we have not even imagined. We do things that… “what? did I just do that? Did I just do that?” We have people that are filled with the Spirit of God that the fear of men goes out. Christianity. Oh Lord Jesus, men and women filled with the Spirit, controlled by the Spirit in Jesus’ name… hallelujah… doing things that they have not even imagined… doing things that they have not even seen in the written word… oh glory!

Jeanne…

We declare your name, the name that is above every name… the name of Jesus in this place… Jesus, Jesus… the Lord that provides … this is the time of restoration… this is the time of visitation… this is the time of fresh renewing and outpouring. And so the visitation of the Lord is now greater in these days than it was yesterday. And the manifestation of His power and glory is 100-fold more than it was yesterday. Manifestation of supernatural miracles increasing, increasing, increasing … 100-fold more than we’ve known in the past… And you are glad… and they declared by human reasoning that it is impossible. That cannot be so, but yes, saith the Lord of hosts, all things are possible to him that believes, and with me, all things are possible and the impossible is now possible. And even many said it’s possible, but not probable. Even the probable shall come into manifestation. Even the probable is manifesting. And our hearts are rejoicing and our spirits are glad and the work of God is enhanced and the kingdom of God advanced…

I’m not tired anymore. Neither are you.

Barb…

So as you can see, the Holy Spirit… the Holy Spirit comes to change your perspective. He was talking to me the other day and He said… I’m from California. And I still have a lot of family in California and I talk to them and it’s always about the weather. First thing is always about the weather. I tell them, “Oh, it’s 40 degrees and sunny. It’s a beautiful day.” They’re like, “Oh my goodness. You know, it’s 85 here. I can’t believe 40 degrees and you’re enjoying 40 degrees and sunny.” And I said, “yes.” And the Holy Ghost said, “It’s perspective.” And so you see how the Holy Ghost… Pastor Fulu comes and he reads that scripture and the Holy Ghost says, “I’m going to change your perspective.” 40 degrees and sunny is good. Yes, it is! Hallelujah. So whatever you’re going through, you have the Holy Ghost. He says, “You look to Me. If you have Me, you’ve got everything you need… everything you need.” Glory to God. What did Jesus say? He said He was going to send the Helper. Do you remember that story about the man who brought his son to the disciples and they couldn’t heal him. And so he brought him to Jesus. And he said, these guys couldn’t deliver him. And Jesus said, do you believe I can do this? And he said, I believe… help my unbelief. And so what did He do? He didn’t preach a sermon. He healed his son. He said, I’m going to help you. Watch this. Did that help your faith? So He went away and He sent the Holy Ghost to help because He wasn’t here, but He said, I’m going to give you the Holy Ghost. So if you’re having a problem believing, you just tap into the Holy Ghost and He will change your perspective… Glory to God. So all we need to do … revival is on the inside of you right now. Everywhere you go, you explode and let the Holy Ghost explode inside of you to everyone around and change the environment. It’s your perspective. You are filled, you are full, you are everything you need to be in Him. You are not lacking in any way. Anything you need, He said He has put in your pathway. Glory to God, and He will make sure that you are fully supplied at every time in every situation with every word that you need to speak in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah.

So thank you, Lord, glory to God… We just receive. We thank you for the Holy Ghost. Thank you for giving us the Helper. We lean on the Helper today. We trust in you, Lord. We know, Father God, that nothing is impossible with you. And by the Holy Spirit, you help us to believe that, to tap into that, to receive that in the name of Jesus… That we could even just like Peter did, we can jump out of that boat and we can walk on the water. We can change the weather. Father, we can… Did you know the enemy came to Jesus and said, “well, if you’re hungry, why don’t you change this stone into bread?” Do you know, it wouldn’t be a temptation if it wasn’t a possibility? Do you get that? It wouldn’t be a temptation if it wasn’t a possibility. So Jesus could take change a stone into bread. Wow! That’s pretty amazing. We’re created in His image and His likeness. We’ve been given all that same authority that He had, glory to God. Nothing is impossible. Glory to God. Thank you, Father. Thank you for this day. As we go out from this place that we carry your presence. We carry your glory to every place that we go. Father, I just pray blessing over every person watching in Jesus’ name. We thank you for it. We thank you for it in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Thank you for coming. Oh, and we will not be here tomorrow because it’s good Friday. I guess we don’t pray when it’s good Friday. [lots of laughter] You celebrate a good Friday and you carry that goodness of God, wherever you go. Be a blessing. Be a blessing in Jesus’ name. Thank you.
