Prayer Summary for Tuesday, September 27, 2016


Thank You for the Cross, Lord
For the blood that was shed
That we can in our hearts be reminded of what You did on the Cross for us today
Worthy, worthy, worthy is our King
Hallelujah, thank You, Lord

Ms. Annie led us singing “Worthy Is the Lamb”

Scripture focus…

Last Wednesday, I read Revelations 1:18 and then a quote from Kenneth Hagin about that scripture.

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” Rev. 1:18 (KJV)

Brother Hagin said “Jesus Christ took the keys away from the devil, glory to God! Keys belong to the Authorized One. Those are the keys of authority.”

I have been going over that more, just realizing that those keys of authority operate through us. We have the authority because He has given it to us. I wanted to go down through Acts 3:1–7.

(1) “Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour (three o’clock in the afternoon), (2) [When] a certain man crippled from his birth was being carried along, who was laid each day at that gate of the temple [which is] called Beautiful, so that he might beg for charitable gifts from those who entered the temple. (3) So when he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked them to give him a gift. (4) And Peter directed his gaze intently at him, and so did John, and said, Look at us! (5) And [the man] paid attention to them, expecting that he was going to get something from them. (6) But Peter said, Silver and gold (money) I do not have; but what I do have, that I give to you: in [the use of] the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk! (7) Then he took hold of the man’s right hand with a firm grip and raised him up. And at once his feet and ankle bones became strong and steady,” Acts 3:1–7 (AMPC)

I read this to remind ourselves that he didn’t pray for the man. He didn’t ask God to do something for the man. He gave him by the authority that was put within him, healing. He gave it to him. It’s not that we shouldn’t lay hands on the sick because we know that is scriptural. I know it’s being led in what we are called to do at a specific time, for a specific situation. Amen.

“Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Luke 9:1–2 (NKJV)

“And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” Matthew 10:1 (NKJV)

(7) “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ (8) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Math 10:7–8 (NKJV)

That’s the anointing. Amen. We give it. If we don’t use the authority that we have, there won’t be the results that God has planned for to take place. It won’t be released.

The following excerpt was taken from Our Authority Releases God’s Power by Andrew Wommack:

A good friend of mine, Dave Duell, held a meeting in Africa many years ago. It was one of his first times he saw miracles such as the blind and deaf healed. The people were so excited that they were mobbing him as he walked through the streets, trying to touch him so they could be healed. His first thought was influenced by this religious thinking I’m trying to change. He thought, They shouldn’t be looking to me. I’m not the healer; it is Jesus. He was about to stop them when the Lord spoke to him. The Lord said, “Dave, do you remember when I rode that donkey into Jerusalem, and all the people put their garments and palm branches in the way and cried, ‘Hosanna’? What would you have thought if the donkey had spoken up and said, ‘It’s not me! It’s not me’? That would only have revealed the donkey’s arrogance. No one was praising the donkey; they were praising the One that was riding the donkey.”

When Dave recognized the people weren’t trying to touch him but the One he was carrying, he let them touch him all they wanted and people were healed. This is exactly what happened with the first-century disciples. Peter had people line the streets so that if only his shadow would touch them, they would be healed (Acts. 5:15).

Look at an amazing passage of Scripture in Isaiah 45:11. “Thus saith the LORD “the, Holy, One of lsrael, and his Maker, Ask me of this to came concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.”

What a powerful scripture! What does the Lord mean when He tells us to command Him? Well, He certainly doesn’t mean we are mightier and more powerful than Him and can order Him around. He means, concerning the things He has already done, He wants us to take our authority and command His power.

Pastor Ray shared…

A lot of times I know I have said that. You know we demand and we command things to line up or whatever it is we are speaking to and I know I have said this. We are not commanding God to do it. Why? Because He has already done it. We are just giving the command using the authority that He has put within us. Amen. And that’s how it can be as far as healing goes. It’s not always that we have to lay hands on somebody to see them healed. It’s not always that way. Sometimes there is not an opportunity to do that and then there is an opportunity to use our authority and speak from that place of authority concerning what was done on the Cross.

We are cleansed. We are washed. We are healed. We have every need met if we just use that key of authority for each one of these areas. Isn’t that right? All of the keys are keys of authority that have been given unto us. On the weekend Sandy and I had opportunity to minister to someone who we hadn’t seen in two or three years. We felt compelled to go and see this man. When we went in to the place he worked, he greeted us and began to talk with us. Sandy was facing him and she said “Are you okay? Are you under stress with your job?” He said he wasn’t surprised at all that we showed up. He had suffered from stress so much that it paralyzed part of his face. He was so open to the Word of God concerning healing for his body. We did everything that we felt led to do. We didn’t stand up and lay hands on him. He was managing a business. We were limited in a way but we were not limited. We were able to give him what the Word of God says and command healing into him without laying hands on him.

We have healing. It’s ours. He gave it to us. It was done on the Cross. And we were so pumped up because the Spirit of God directed us to that place at that right time where he was in a full blown need for the healing power of God. And so no matter what, we may be different in ways of political beliefs and all that kind of thing, he was in need for healing. I am just saying if we open our eyes wherever we are, there are people in need for us to use the authority that God has put within us. Isn’t that right? Amen.

So we are waiting on a good report from him and we will know about it. I know it’s going to change for him. He is good and His mercies endure forever and ever and ever.

Ms. Annie led us singing of His goodness…

Pastor Ray shared…

The Holy Spirit is so good in every way that He sent Brother Copeland here with a word over our pastors and over this church concerning healing. And he had just finished talking about when he received under the anointing of the Holy Ghost, Brother Hagin spoke over him and to him and then he stepped into the office of prophet. That was years ago but when he was here a couple things he declared. One was a plane that was better than any plane we have ever had. That was the first thing. Then he declared planes so that men and women of God could go to the missions field, fly out a whole load of people, minister and fly back. That’s part of the vision for this church that was declared years and years and years ago. God sent him to speak that into this ministry and revive it. It’s not that Pastor Mac has ever let it go or Pastor Lynne but just to reignite , an increase. So while Ms. Annie was singing there I started seeing that how it will look when men and women, youth and children too begin to flood in to be rearranged and changed in their natural bodies or in their spiritual bodies too, in their spirit man, in every way to be restored. And how that will look when the bell, the healing, the dinner bell begins to ring more loudly than ever. There will be people that will come from every direction. it won’t matter what they have heard about this church or what they haven’t heard about this church but they will find a way to get here because the manifested power of the Holy Spirit concerning healing, one of the keys of authority, will begin to operate greater, grander, and bigger than it’s ever operated before. Hallelujah.

Continued praying…

We see it with the eyes of our faith this morning
Ambulances bringing in cots of people to the Church
Coming from nursing homes, hospitals, their death beds at their homes
Coming to fulfill the plan and the purpose God has in them
Reminding ourselves and reminding You, Father, of what You spoke through Your servant
What You declared over this place
We pray, we declare, we open our hearts
Opening our eyes to see and ears to hear
We are looking to be directed
Open to those that come in to see them rearranged and completely made whole
Watering these words
More and more and more it shall come to pass
It is coming to pass!
Testimony after testimony – bodies rearranged and changed
We are getting ourselves ready
Expectance is rising within us
We will have to get to the services earlier and earlier for the demand!
Every one of us will know what to do – declaring healing all the way through
Those that come one way will leave completely a different way
Things will be made new – nothing will be impossible
Nothing is impossible with You!
A boldness, a courage to declare what You have already done for us
In the wonderful name of Jesus
Brighter and brighter – Your glory will manifest in a greater way
It will be a show – for signs and wonders they shall grow and they shall flow
For some, it shall be a paradigm shift but the shift shall come and the bodies will be won and the souls shall be saved and set free!
It matters, saith God, It matters, saith the Lord, to call these things to be
Every wall get out of the way for this church is going forth
Not like a machine but by the power of Your Spirit that is residence in all of us
Money and resources will be there enabling us to do what You have called us to do
Assignments too
Specific assignments bringing about the changes in every arena
It’s going out further and further – country after country
Momentum will carry
Maximum efficiency
Every one of those resources from heaven being loosed
Abundant flow, move, change, rearranging
New words
Open up these doors, it’s an abundant way
Holy Ghost-given steps that we must walk out
Every one of them
Setting it up right
That’s being changed right now
That’s for the transfer that has already begun
Patterns of increase – it’s like a new page, a new chapter
The book of Acts in this day 2016
It shall be known – the media will report on it
For the signs, the wonderful happenings and great changes!
No it cannot be stopped in the name of Jesus
We lay hold of it by faith

Pastor Paul shared…

I see the children of God actually standing up and taking their place. It’s like “how do you see, how do you hear, how do you speak?” Are you seeing what they are showing you or are you seeing what My Word declares. How do you hear? Are you hearing the noise in the marketplace or are you hearing the voice of God? How do you speak? Are you speaking what they are saying in the marketplace or are you declaring what My Word declares? Did I not tell you that if thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believes? Many of us set the dates too far off. We set it too far off because we don’t believe it can be in our time or it can be apparent to us. But the Lord is saying “As thou has believed, so be it done unto you.” I see it, I can see those aircrafts. I can see the authority of the believer manifest. That you just stand up and people are like “Let’s go to him. There is something about that man. There is something about that woman. They carry something. They possess something.” You know the world will not come to the Church until the Church does not look like the world. There is something we are carrying and we cannot get our cues from the world. We have to get it from the Word. And the Word tells us that we are more than conquerors. We are a royal priesthood, we are a peculiar nation, a chosen generation, we are called to show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light. So when we are praying, we are not praying with oh, me, hear me. We are praying with an authority and an expectation of somebody who already possess and we are outlining when! Glory to God.

I can see it. Lord, this is marvelous. I don’t see small aircrafts alone. I see 757s, 777s, 787s, I see 747s. People will come to you and say, “Look this has been sitting on the tarmac for so long. Can you use it?” That’s what I see. This has been baking in me. When Kenneth Copeland mentioned it, I said “Glory to God!” Because this is something that I have seen. How you going to do it, Lord? And then He mentions something and I say “Yes, Lord, I see it!” I see this Church where there is two floors open and people are coming from the top floor and Pastor Mac is counting down, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! On the air! The whole church full and everyone on the air. Do you see that? Glory to God!

What do you see? Elijah told Elisha “If you see me go, you have…” Let’s look at what we are watching. Are we seeing us going down or are we seeing us going up? Are you praying from a disadvantage or are you praying from an advantage? Watchmen never pray from a disadvantage. Watchmen pray from an advantage. When they are watching they are not watching for an outcome of disaster. They are watching for the promise. God wants to tell us, “What are you seeing? What are you hearing? What are you saying?” Praise God.

Pastor Ray shared…

Before we go I wanted to give you this testimony. I was talking to someone yesterday. It was a testimony that Pastor Mac and Lynne had several years ago. There was some absolute, horrendous storms in Florida. I was kind of reminded of it when Billye was here and she said “Well this church, you have to be responsible for the weather too.” And you know where that comes from? The top, Mac and Lynne. But there were storms that where just absolutely insane in the Gulf. It was on the news. You could just pull up the TV and you could watch it and it was moving right toward Pastor Mac and Lynne’s beach house. It’s exactly like you said Pastor Paul. Do you want to look at the weather report or do you want to look at what the Word says?

So Pastor Lynne would keep speaking “Bless God, that thing is not coming near our house period!” She just kept confessing it, declaring it. And so after it hit, no one knew exactly what had happened down there. I mean she knew because she declared the word over that place. So, Layne and I flew down there. We couldn’t even fly into that area. We had to fly into another city and drive there. There was so much sand that had come up off the beach that the SUV we were driving got buried it in the sand. There was so much sand on the street. We had to walk a couple blocks with the generator. Before we got to the house there was a pool area that didn’t exist anymore. It was full of sand and the sand was all the way out on the street like I said. The bottoms of all of the neighbor’s homes were just gone.. I am saying the furniture is out in the street. It’s just the posts. So we get to Pastor Mac and Lynne’s place and everything is intact. We go to the back. The ocean is like right there. All of the berms, everything was gone. So we unlock the house. We go in the lower level. There was like maybe one inch of water that had come in but it had already receded. That’s it! And every one of the neighbors where just… I mean they were digging to get into their homes.

So I was in the back and I went to the one neighbor lady and she said “I do not understand this.” And she is looking at Mac and Lynne’s house which is just sitting there practically untouched. She goes, “You know I am not a bad person.” That’s what she said to me. Why would that house be… Okay I didn’t go down the road with her but you know she thought it was maybe because of something they did or whatever.

The authority, that’s what we are speaking about, and it was used for that house to protect it even though on TV it looked like things would be busted up, flooded, ruined but that wasn’t the case. I think there was maybe one rug we took out and dried it out. That’s it. God is what? Good and His mercy endures forever and His word works when we use the authority He has given us. Amen.

Thank you for coming this morning and every day
I appreciate it, thank you.
