Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, July 10, 2020

Pastor Ray…

Good morning. I told Pastor Tim when I woke up, I heard two words: increase and decrease. I heard that in my spirit. I wasn’t thinking about spiritual things. I just started thinking about that… we’re calling for increase. Our prayers have been continually pressing for more increase. In every good thing. I know that’s what God wants for us. It’s His plan. But then about decrease, we don’t usually shout out “Hey, I’m pressing ahead for decrease!” But I saw it in a different way. There are lots and lots of things in the natural that need to decrease. They need to decrease and keep decreasing and decreasing. So Wednesday, I met with the prayer directors. Rich, who usually does sound in here on Monday and Tuesday, had this on his phone. It’s a prophecy from Kenneth Copeland. I think it’s June 21, 2020. It’s not that long ago. It’s about the blessing. I want to start out with that. But first, let’s pray.

Holy Spirit, we welcome You today. We need You and we’re always asking and always believing, and we believe we’re receiving increase of Your presence. We welcome Your presence this morning in the chapel and out over the Internet. Thank You for moving where You need to move. Thank You for Your presence in our lives, our families, churches, ministries, countries. Your presence is such a necessity. We need you these days.

The Holy Spirit said through Kenneth Copland this prophecy.

“THE BLESSING of The LORD, I maketh rich,” saith THE BLESSING of The LORD. “For this has always been My nature. This has always been My way. If it hadn’t been for sin, I would never have had a serious thought because I am a God of joy, and the joy of The LORD, which is Me, is your strength,” says the Master Himself. “So rejoice in Me and be glad. For THE BLESSING is greater now than it has ever been before because these are the last of the last days. And the best is still yet to come. Hallelujah! I said the best is still yet to come. And it will always be that way. You can’t run out. You can’t run out of BLESSING because I am THE BLESSING and I can still be THE BLESSING, and I can be more BLESSING and more BLESSING and more BLESSING, exceedingly more than you can ask or think,” saith The LORD God.

Pastor Ray continues…

We’re blessed. The Word talks about going out and coming in, whatever we put our hands unto. The words we speak based on the Word. We’re blessed! And I just love this that the best is still yet to come. And it’ll always be that way. And it’s greater now than it ever has been before. Because these are the last days. So the blessings of God are ramping up. Despite what we see in the natural. We are expectant. We’re expecting this Word to come to pass. I just googled “the blessing.” It says the act of a person who blesses. Special favor. Benefit. Mercy. A favor or a gift bestowed by God thereby bringing happiness. God’s favor upon a person. Praise. Worship. Devotion. Approval or good wishes.

So to go over the two words: increase and decrease. I googled this also. Decrease means “make or become small or fewer in size: amount, intensity, or degree.” For an example, the population of the area has decreased radically. Or become less. Become smaller. Reduced. Drop away. I wrote out some things. We declare this morning some decreases. What are some of those things? Strife. Division. All kinds of spirits of hostility must decrease. Lawlessness. Lies of every kind. Blasphemy. Fires from hell. Confusion. Disorder. Sickness. Poverty. Lack. Fear. Any kind of virus. Any kind of attack from the enemy trying to get us to decrease where we’re needed to increase. It’s his plan but we’re not bowing to that plan. We push his plan back by the blood of the Lamb.

Maybe you have one thing that comes to your heart that you might want to say “You must decrease.” Call it out. Speak to it. And watch it leave. So then the other side of decrease is increase. So that just means becoming or make greater in size, amount, intensity or degree, grow, get bigger, get larger, become greater, enlarge, and expand. That’s all part of increase. Growth, enlargement, extension. These are some things I wrote out this morning. Truth. Salvation. Revival. Increase. These need to increase. Restoration. All kinds of heaven’s signs. Miracles. Wonderful things. Prosperity, of course, of every kind. Wisdom. Hope. Increase in faith. Believing. Expecting. Increase in goodness. Increase in boldness. In Him. We don’t have to muster that up but God’s increase in us causing us to speak boldly concerning Him. So joy, of course. Mercy. Prosperity. The peace of God. The strength of God. the anointing of God. We need an increase of change toward the better in our country. We need an increase of joy for sure. And we need an increase of the peace that passes all understanding. Beyond what we could ask or think. We need an increase of those changes today. So when we speak it, let’s believe it. Now is the time for increase of all God’s good things. Hallelujah!

Let me say that again about the blessing. For THE BLESSING is greater… so it’s increasing. The blessing is greater now than it has ever been before because these are the last of the last days. And the best is still yet to come. Let’s not be like those that say we’ll never have what we had because of the virus or whatever. We’ll never be where we were. No. The best is still yet to come. That should be our declaration. God has given us vision. Each one of us. And for our churches, this church at Living Word, the spirit of God gave our pastors vision for what this church should be. So for us personally, we’re not going to quit on the vision He’s given us. The vision is still yet to come. Let’s just say it like that. His plans and purposes are still yet to come. We can’t turn around, sit down and quit. What does Pastor Mac always say? If you don’t quit, you’ll win. So we’re winners if we just keep on, keeping on. So I love it that the Holy Spirit said it’s still yet to come. But in case we didn’t get it, then He said, I said the best is still yet to come. And it will always be that way. We’re not going down. We’re going up. We’re not shrinking spiritually speaking. There are a lot of these things we declared; they are shrinking. Decreasing. And leaving and coming to nothing. But in the increase, we stand up and receive it because we have His Word on it. Not just in this word but we have His Word on it in the written Word. Thank You for it, Lord. So the last part of this says more BLESSING and more BLESSING and more BLESSING, exceedingly more than you can ask or think,” saith The LORD God.

Pastor Tim, I toss it over to you.

Pastor Tim led in worship…

no limit’s no boundaries… I see increase all around me… stretch forth, break forth, release me… enlarge my territory… no limits,

Pastor Ray…

Pastor Tim, all the while you’ve been singing, I’ve kept seeing “777.” I saw it like a dial. Go seven to the right. Seven to the left. Seven back and then it opened. But I wasn’t sure what it was opening up to. What does 777 mean in the Bible? The first thing is in the Bible this number is represented as the symbol of perfection and completion. So everything that you’ve been declaring… 777 means perfection and completion, completed, finished. Number seven is repeated three times in the number 777. Which means that 777 is a perfect number. It actually represents the perfect trinity of God the Holy Spirit, God the Son and God the Father. All in perfect harmony. In agreement. So we’re in agreement. The best is yet to come!

Pastor Tim continues…

Every day is sweeter, every day is better. ♪I know we’ve sung that a lot. It may seem simplistic but really, it’s an expression of our faith and our trust I the Lord in His character, in His nature, in His ability, in His Word that no matter what our circumstances are, God is still good. He’s worthy of our trust. And we believe Him and His Word that our circumstances are not going to stay the same. We’re putting our trust in Him. So when we say every day is sweeter, we’re believing for the better that He’s promised. We believe that the best is yet to come.

Pastor Ray…

We could sing or say that the whole hour and it would be fine with me. Because it is a declaration of what the Word tells us. We heard from the Holy Spirit the blessings of the Lord; they’re not going to run out. Let’s sing that. When you sing that, I see it. I don’t see all the junk.

Pastor Tim…

Sometimes you have to when things don’t look that way around you. The Bible says to call those things that are not as though they were. ♪ Every day is sweeter… every day is better…

Pastor Ray…
Let me read Psalm 23 that we’ve been singing.

The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
2 He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.
3 He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him—not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.
4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with [a]oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
6 Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.

I noticed this in chapter 27:13 [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed…” What would have become of us if we hadn’t believed? When we were singing “every day is better” and all that goodness… Before I was born again, I listened to rock and roll all the time, 24/7. One song got my attention. I wasn’t born again yet. The band kept singing, “I’m on a highway to hell.” It would play over and over until I finally got it. “I DON’T WANT TO BE ON A HIGHWAY TO HELL! So I’m never listening to that anymore.” It was the opposite of what we’re singing, saying, and believing. Every day is better. Otherwise it would be like the band saying every day is worse. I’m on a rabbit trail here. But what we say is what we get. What we pray is what we receive. What we see with the eyes of our spirit, when we say those things, they shall come to pass. Down here it says, what would become of me, David sang this, “had I not believed that I would see the Lord or see His goodness in the land of the living!” Verse 14 “Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.” Hallelujah! That’s what we’re doing. We’re waiting on Him and expecting Him. Let’s sing that some more, please.

Pastor Tim continues to sing…
Pastor Ray…

While you were singing, I kept seeing a map of the United States, all of the states. And one part just kept standing out and that’s Washington DC. So we’re saying the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever, all over the United States. Just speaking it. And when we’re saying every day is sweeter and better, we’re speaking it and saying it and praying it and declaring all over the UNITED States of America. Getting better. It is not going to get worse. It’s not going down. It’s coming up. Things that the Father by the Spirit had in mind for this United States, these things are the things that are getting better, sweeter, coming forth in these days. A lot of people don’t think Minneapolis/St. Paul will ever get better. It will! There’s a plan and purpose for these two cities. It’s God’s plan for these cities. And one of the plans we’ve heard it in different words and prophesies is that revival will begin to break out up here in the northern part of the United States. And we’re holding fast to it. We’re not giving up on it. One of the prophecies talked about where 35W crossed over the Mississippi, in that general area. Well, we were talking about this the other day. Back a few years ago, that’s the 35W bridge that fell down! The bridge fell down right where you cross the Mississippi! Then just a month or so ago, the protesters almost got run over by a truck on 35W bridge! The enemy’s trying to derail the things that God has called to come to pass. So we are holding fast for these things. But we’re not just holding for here and where we live but for wherever you live also. We’re in agreement today, that things are getting better. Our leaders are moving more toward God’s ways as opposed to the other way. Pastor Tim, when you said “breakthroughs,” I believe there are breakthroughs happening right now. Even in those that are speaking against God’s will and plan. There will be some removals and others will be put in their places. That’s one reason why we pray for our leaders. We pray wisdom and understanding and revelation for him. We declare over our President to keep on moving and going. It’s getting better. Don’t quit.
