Morning Prayer Summary for Thursday, January 14, 2021

Pastor Ray…

Good morning, men and women of God. We’re standing on the Word and the Word is true. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Hallelujah. I want to read from Kenneth Hagin’s prophecy from 1987 on the last days.

Bur first I want to read this scripture in Second Timothy 3:1: “But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]. 2 For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. 3 [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good. 4 [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God. 5 For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them]. (Amp.)

Stay away from them! It says in verse 14, “But as for you, continue to hold to the things that you have learned and of which you are convinced, knowing from whom you learned [them]…”

That’s the Word. So stay true to the Word, continue in the Word, stand on the Word. We’ve been going over all that, but I wrote on the side of my Bible, “just be faithful.”

So we’re not moved by what the enemy is trying to do. We’re moved by what God is doing. And a lot of this that I just read will come back on them. What you sow, you shall reap. So I always think of that when people are just going on in some of other world. What you’re saying is going to come back on you. Watch what you say. And so what we want to say is what the Word says. We want to do what the Word says, and be what the Word says. And just stay faithful. I’m not going to read this yet. I thought we should worship him. Or maybe there’s something you want to say first, Annie.

Annie shared and then led group in worship…

You know, there are so many mornings where I have a song that’s in my heart. And there were about 50 songs this morning. And I realized it was just because my spirit is … it’s like searching for the homing signal of Jesus and His Holy Spirit because there’s such turbulence all around us, you know? And there’s so many things my soulish realm is reaching out for answers in these days. I really felt like, you know, “Oh Lord, I don’t know what the song is today. I don’t know.” So I’d been praying in tongues and confessing scriptures and singing different songs to myself. Then I just started confessing that I hear the voice of the good shepherd and the voice of a stranger I do not follow. And so then just as I’m pulling in the parking lot, the scripture came up in my heart from Philippians: the peace of God passes all understanding and guards our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. When we do what? When we rejoice in Him and when we fix our minds and all that is good and beautiful and pure and lovely and worthy of a good report. So that’s the song that was in my heart as I pulled into the parking lot.

Pastor Ray…

We can’t let the enemy… You know, we’re not warring against flesh and blood. That’s what the Word says, but we can’t let what the enemy says, does, or the pictures they like to project… whatever… we cannot let that take us off what we’ve been called to do. And, of course, the main thing is on Him. We just cannot let that happen. I was just thinking about the call that each one of us have. We cannot get off the call and get away from it and just be so moved by what we see from the world. We’ve got to focus even more strongly, I guess, if I can put it like that… focus in and keep focused, keep our eyes on Jesus. And victory in Him.

Annie shared…

That’s it. For the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross despising the shame and is now set down at the Father’s right hand. And we need to do that too. There was this one little spirit song that I was singing this morning among all the others. When it looks like you’re the Devil is… It’s from the scriptures. ‘I am small, despised, and yet Your precepts, I will not forget.” David said that. You know, they are life to me who finds them, they are healing to all my flesh, holy and pure, righteous and just are every one of your precepts. We stick with His precepts no matter what the world says. We endure the cross. We despise the shame. Like Moses, he chose affliction with the people of God rather than the pleasures of Egypt. We know that He’s faithful. We know He’s never going to let us down. And I was thinking about all the heroes of Hebrews 11, they endured and they never got to see the things we’ve gotten to see. They kept on believing God even when they never got to see Messiah except, you know, in a prophetic way. But we’ve heard His words. We’ve heard His voice. We’ve seen Him in His beauty. So how much more can we endure? Whatever the Devil is doing, it’s not going to last. It can’t. But He lasts forever. His words last forever. And His faithfulness is forever. So this light affliction that is but for a moment worketh for us a far more enduring weight of glory. Praise God.

Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus… ♪

Pastor Ray…

Let’s read this again one more time. “But as for you, continue to hold to the things that you have learned and of which you are convinced, knowing from whom you learned [them]…” Well, of course, for sure, when we’re in a church and we have a pastor that’s based and solid on the Word, we stay under them. We learn from them and we learn from the Word. And, one thing Ms. Annie, when you said something about staying faithful, it brought two people to my memory about being faithful all the way through until they made a decision to exit earth and go home to heaven. One was Lucy McKee, Pastor Lynne’s twin sister, who was a fireball on this earth, and Sandy and I had so many opportunities to be around her and be encouraged in Him. And sometimes when we would be in France and we’d go to her room, she had so many notes, like stacks and stacks of the Word. And all of it had to do with prayer. But all the way through, she was so faithful. And then one day, Pastor Lynne called and said, “Lucy’s leaving.”  I thought, “Where’s she going?” She said, “She wants to exit earth and be in heaven.” And she had been so close to Vicki Jamison. Between the two of them, they would talk about heaven all the time. And Vickie Jamison wrote… Rebecca Springer in one of her books on heaven. Awesome. She wrote in the beginning of that book. But when she decided it was time for her to go home, she went home. She had an open casket, and you would think she was sleeping. She was beautiful. And you’d expect she would open her eyes at any second. But she decided to leave. But she was faithful all the way up until she knew it was time. That’s what she had on her heart. So, you know, at the time we just got in agreement with her. Because we knew that was the desire of her heart.

The other person was Erica Bergstrom. She spent so many years here at Living Word being faithful in the prayer ministry. And no one really knew toward the end of her life here on this earth, what it was that she did go through. A lot of us were, of course, really close to her because we spent so many hours praying here at the ministry. So no one knew that the things that she was going through, but she made a decision first to stay on this earth. She did everything. She spoke the Word. She did everything she knew to do, and she was here for another six, seven years. But nobody knew. Some people still don’t know that she left, but she got to a point where she just made the decision. “I’m leaving. It’s time to go and I’m going to go.” So Sandy and I had opportunity to be with her just like a few days before she left. There was no… I don’t know how to put it. There was no spirit of death in that room. There was a spirit of life, the Holy Spirit. And we had the most blessed time together. She was faithful all the way to the end when she made the decision, it’s time to go home. And we actually were able to talk with her about when you are looking down on earth… keep encouraging us here on this earth that we might be faithful, just like you. All the way to the end. And there might be a semi rabbit trail, but sometimes when someone says something, the Holy Spirit will bring somebody else to you and something that happened. And it just encourages me in these days. You just be faithful to what you know, just like the scripture says. Don’t quit, but just keep on praying, believing, expecting. But to be faithful here on this earth, because lives depend on it. We’re not just coming in or joining you online so we can pray for each other… We’re blessed and let’s go out the doors. We are always praying outward, declaring the things that needed to be declared as, as much as we can possibly do. So are we going to be faithful? Yes, Lord.

So this is the word that I want to just go through this morning.

Kenneth E. Hagin
Prophecy about End Times, 1987

And the seer shall stand on the horizon of time and see that which God has planned and know of His purpose. Standing on the horizon of time, he shall look back into the realm of time and see that which the enemy has planned.

Yea, yea, yea, yea, saith the Lord of hosts, this is the time of restoration. This is the time of visitation, the time of fresh renewing and outpouring. And so the visitation of the Lord shall be greater in these days than it was yesterday.

And the manifestation of His power and glory shall be 100-fold more than it was yesterday. Yeah, the glory of God shall be seen upon the face of many, and many, without a word being spoken, just looking upon the face of the man of God, shall fall down in repentance and cry out unto God.

Even those who are not in that office … set in that church, but are members of that body … enhanced by the Spirit … on fire and maintaining the glow … men and women in the world shall look upon their faces and fall down and say, “I don’t know what makes me do this.”

Yea, the power of God shall be in manifestation. And thy heart shall be rejoicing and thou shalt be glad. And the work of God shall be consummated, and many things that have been spoken, even unto men of God who sit in this place and shake their heads and say, “Oh, that cannot be so.” And the work of God by the Spirit coming into the hearts of women of God. And they declared by human reasoning, “That is impossible. That cannot be so.”

But, yea, saith the Lord of hosts, all things are possible to him that believeth. And with Me all things are possible, and the impossible shall become the possible. And even many have said, “It is possible, but it is not probable.” Yea, even the probable shall come into manifestation. And your hearts shall be made to rejoice and your spirits shall be glad. And the work of God shall be enhanced, and the kingdom of God shall be advanced.

And sitting upon the horizon of time and looking not only into the realm of the Spirit and seeing that which transpires in the spirit realm, for the enemy goeth about as never before knowing that his time is short.  Thou shalt know, and thou shalt share.

And those who know how to pray will rise up in this hour and intercede. And the forces of darkness shall be driven back, and the evil spirits and the powers of the enemy that would encroach on the things of God and the people of God would be driven back. And so it is that the church shall stand tall in this hour and shall stand BIG in this hour, and rejoice in His power and looking into the realm of time.

Yea, I looked … I looked … I looked, and I saw the hearts of men and, oh, they were disturbed and perplexed. And I saw a black, dark cloud rise up from the eastern part of our nation. And it came out of the capital of our nation, and men responded unto that darkness that arose and walked with it. And that darkness began to envelope this very land. But oh, oh, the hearts of many that know God sensed in their spirits. And those of us who stand on the horizon of time shall sound forth a word of warning.

And so there shall arise the mighty ones, those called of God, separated unto Him. And they shall make intercession, and the light shall shine and drive back the darkness and evil and wicked men shall fall.

And there will be those (and remember it was told you in advance. It was told you years in advance), there shall be those in high places who will fall down dead. And some shall say, “Oh, they would have made such a great leader. I cannot understand.” But those who know the voice of the Spirit shall rejoice and be glad. For ye shall know the darkness has been stayed, and the hand of the enemy has been defeated.

And the word of God that is to be consummated in those few short years to come will be consummated.  And the work of God shall be done.

And there shall be those who will come and stand stalwart and strong around those who are persecuted for the kingdom’s sake, and they shall stand as one man. They shall stand and having done all to stand, stand.

And so the work shall be consummated, and so that work which shall be done in this hour and that visitation of the Spirit and that revival that is about to BURST upon you shall surely come to pass. And many, many, many, many as the world would say, “hordes” of people shall be swept into the kingdom. And even in places upon this earth of seemingly uttermost darkness, the light shall shine in, and men and women shall rise up and exercise the authority that is theirs on this earth.

For if two of you shall agree on earth in any nation, in any land, regardless of the government, regardless of the opposition, regardless of the darkness, if two of you on earth in North America … yes, in South America … yes, in Central America … yes, in Asia … yes, in Europe … yes, in Australia … yes, behind the Iron Curtain … yes, if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything they shall ask, it shall be done for them by my Father which is in heaven, for whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven.

Remember, there is nothing in the third heaven, in Paradise, that needs to be bound, but remember, in the first heaven, just above the earth, where the demons and evil spirits are ruling whole nations, they must be bound. And whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. And those spirits that dominate whole nations, and that dominate certain corners of this earth shall be bound.

And the light shall shine and the Holy Ghost shall be poured out. The revival will come, and the hearts and lives of men and women shall be blessed, and whole nations shall be changed.

And you shall enter into a new day … a new age … not a new age as man thinks … but you shall see, there shall be in manifestation at the end of this age a portion … a measure of the power … the glory that shall be manifest in the age to come. And you approach that time.

For these are the times of refreshing from the hand of the Lord, from the presence of the Lord, and the time of giving from the hand of the Lord, and the time of manifestation by the Holy Ghost and the glory of the Lord.

So rejoice and be glad. Let not your hearts be sad. Neither be ye pessimistic, but rather you look forward to the future with optimism, gladness, and joy for the light has shined, and the glory is revealed.

Thank You, Lord Jesus.

Pastor Ray continued…

That was better than I remembered it. That’s so good. So what do we do? We rejoice! You know, Miss Annie, “Send the rain, send the fire?” Let’s do that just for a little bit. And on my way over this morning, I have to say, just in the last few weeks, all the different things, it has tended to try to get us maybe out of the perfect steps. I don’t know how to describe it. It’s just a lot, a lot, a lot of words, pictures, people. I don’t know, media, Facebook, whatever. And I was just going along and I thought, “We cannot give up on calling for the plan and the purpose… revival and awakening.” Whatever it was when Billy declared that there’s only one thing that’s going to change America, and that is an awakening, an awakening to the things of God. And if we just looked at anything, let’s say a week ago, Wednesday, we looked at people that were rioting and going crazy. Or we looked at yesterday that some of the things that were said were absolutely so untrue and so nasty.


The mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped! That’s the Word of God.

Pastor Ray…

This morning, I heard a representative with his mask on saying President Trump was like Osama bin Laden. What are you talking about? This is not a political meeting, but it’s a Holy Ghost meeting. And the lies… it’s going to be like a boomerang. A lot of things that were spoken forth that were lies and they knew they were lies. Let’s just not say one side or the other… just lies. It’s going to come back. Whatever is sown, it shall come back. So we speak the Word of God, we believe in the Word of God. We keep sowing in love, walking in love. I know we’re not the judge or the jury. And I know that we don’t have to do the work—we speak it. God by the power of the Holy Spirit is faithful in working right now on our behalf. Okay, Ms. Annie, go ahead please.

Annie led group in worship…

We just pray for your fire this morning… your fire across this nation, Lord… your fire, Father, in this house… Lord, in our hearts in Jesus’ name… we pray for fire in the name of Jesus… sweeping, moving, renovating, transforming, changing, implementing fire, Father, in the name of Jesus all across father America… even now today, Lord, we pray for a beginning Lord, a beginning… an initiation… a spark of God going forth in this time in this hour… in this season, Lord… for surely, Lord, your plan does declare it… Your plan does declare, Lord, your design and your desire to awaken your people… to awaken the people of America from sea to shining sea… from the north to the south, from the east to the west… all across this great planet… we just call out this morning as the company gathered under this place, in this room, and across the nation online… we just come together, Father, and we just reach out with our faith and with our words this morning and we just call and ask and seek and knock and desire and even require, Lord, that you would do that which you’ve declared in your Word… that you would do that which you have announced through the mouths of prophets through decades in years gone by of what would come in this time in this hour and even in specifically this place and in this nation… Lord, we just lift it up to you today… we’re reminded that your Word still announces… Jesus, you yourself said that your desire that we were to pray on earth even as it is in heaven.

Thank you, Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Thank you. Thank you.

Pastor Ray…

It is time for every pray-er, every person of prayer and those that have never been to get in now. Just begin to lift our hearts and our voices, standing on the Word, taking what we’ve heard here this morning. Just take what the Holy Spirit said through the prophet lift it up to heaven.

Father, you said by your spirit, hordes are going to be coming in. Lives are going to be changed. We’ll be rising up and be the church that you’ve called us to be. Better days. You said better days, a new age, better times are ahead. Hallelujah, Lord. Thank you for your Words spoken forth. We receive them. We believe them and we remind you of them.

We’ll put this out. It’ll be on GPAN. So if you’re tuning in and you’d like to get a copy of it, just go to the website, Living Word Christian Center, LWCC. Click “prayer.” You’ll see how to sign up for GPAN. And every day you’ll get something from the chapel.

Hallelujah. God is good. And His mercy endures forever and ever. We’re blessed coming in. We’re blessed going out. We’re up. We’re not down. We’re the head, we’re not the tail. We take our seat in heavenly places and call those things forth that maybe still have not yet been seen, but they shall be seen. Thank you for it in Jesus’ name. Amen. So be it.
