  1. “Morning Chapel Prayer Playlist

Peg led group in worship…

Jeanne shared…

Thank you so much for tuning in. I’m so thankful for who He is and what He’s doing on the earth today and in the church. We’re in the awakening. Things are moving. And anything that the enemy would attempt, always works out for our good every time. So, Father, I thank you so much that you are just such a good, good Father. And, Holy Spirit, I just receive articulation to be able to communicate. You communicate through me what it is you want to communicate to the Church this morning. And out of that, we declare and proclaim and we minister to Him. Praise God. Father, we just thank you. We welcome you.

This scripture wasn’t really even on my mind, but someone needs to hear it, probably more than one person. From Hebrews 13, “And be satisfied with your present circumstances and with what you have for he, God himself, has said, I will not in any way fail you.” I will not in any way fail you for he, God himself has said it. And so if He said it, we can be satisfied with our present circumstances. We can know that there’s no way He’s going to fail us. It’s actually impossible for Him to fail us. It just can’t happen.

So any circumstances that you might be dealing with right now, they’re shifting because He can’t fail you. You. But I do love how the Amplified really emphasizes how adamant He is about what He says. He has said, “I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support.” So in no way is He going to fail you. In no way is He failing you right now. In no way is He giving you up to that torment to anything that would attempt to hinder you. But while you get through it on the way to victory in no way, are you going to be left without support.

So it’s not like you’re going to have to “grit it out” and “hunker down.” He’s not leaving you without support in no way. Just declare over you today at the goodness of God, that while you’re getting to breakthrough, even though you already are in breakthrough, He will in no way leave you without support. Isn’t that awesome? The practicality of God. You’re in the middle of something and He goes, “I know you need support. I know you need that. And in no way, am I going to leave you without it.” I mean, just the detail… He’s in the mundane. He’s in the big. He’s in the little. He’s in the in-between. He’s in all of it and in no way will He leave you without support.

“I will not in any way, fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support.” And I love this. “I will not. I will not. I will not in any degree leave you helpless, nor forsake you, nor let you down. Relax My hold on you. Assuredly not.” It’s so absolute His heart toward you. It’s so absolute His plan for you. Right now! Right now, His plan for you is assuredly you will not be without support. You will not be without help. There’s no way you’re ever going to be forsaken.

So, what do we do with that? We take comfort. We are encouraged and we confidently and boldly say the Lord is my helper. I will not be seized with alarm. I will not fear or dread or be terrified. What can man do to me? You know, even when the Word references things like this… You know how sometimes we can’t listen to people unless we know they understand our heart. God is understanding our hearts when He says I know you’re probably tempted to give into dread and fear, but I’m telling you, the more just lean into me and know I’m not leaving you without support. You’re getting through this. You will actually say… and some of you’re already saying it. But sometime today you keep leaning in on Him and you’re going to end up saying it. “I’m not going to be afraid. I’m encouraged. I have comfort.”

Father, we just thank you for that. We open up our hearts today. And we thank you that we have the mind of Christ. So I asked Holy Spirit, “What’s the opener today in prayer?” Sometimes, He shares and sometimes He doesn’t. He shared. Even though He never holds back… I was thinking about when Barabbas and Jesus we’re there and I’m going to reference that in a minute and how the crowd when Pilot said, “What are we going to do with Jesus?” Because they wanted Jesus to be punished. And they didn’t say… they chose to have Him crucified for His punishment. And I thought, why didn’t they choose stoning? When they could have chosen for Him to be stoned. I mean, talk about massive participation. If they were going to stone him, they had such a visceral hate towards Him. You could participate. But they wanted Him crucified.

So in the middle of all of this, the Word kept playing out because this is the Word says that cursed is the one that hangs on a tree. So even God in the middle of all that was influencing this evil situation so the Word could be fulfilled. Because it wouldn’t have been fulfilled if He’d been stoned that day. He had to be crucified. He had to take on the curse for us. Just think about the the genius of our God that even in the middle of torment, in the middle of something so evil, this could be for you too, whatever… His Word plays out. The crowd that was against Jesus insisted that He be crucified. Isn’t that amazing? And everything that’s happening right now, where the enemy is moving in our country, God is influencing things that Wis Word is being played out. Anything that’s happening in your family. Anything. He’s influencing those things that His Word is being played out. The Word stands. The Word does the work. And you’re never going to get away from it.

America, you will never get away from the Word. The Word is being played out right now.

So that crowd shouted “Crucify Him.” And then this was interesting. I’m getting ahead of it. So what I’m about to say isn’t completely accurate, but I’m going to read it from the Bible pretty soon. Okay. But one thing, the crowd shouted out “Let His blood be on us and our children.” And isn’t that funny? If His blood really was available to them because I mean… they meant it as the boldness of evil. But God’s like, “Yeah, you’re right. Now My blood is going to be available for your full redemption.” Amazing! So, the scripture that Holy Spirit highlighted for me regarding prayer today was Paul when he said in 1st Corinthians 2, “For I resolve to know nothing, to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing. To be conscious of nothing among you, except Jesus Christ the Messiah and Him crucified. Not Jesus Christ the Messiah and Him stoned, because it would have had no effect. But Jesus Christ the Messiah and Him crucified. So then Holy Spirit started ministering to me. And He’ll say, “Well, Jeannie, why was that? That, that was his main focus. The thing he lived and breathed off of was to know nothing, but Jesus Christ and Him crucified?” Because Paul had the accuser following him around. Remember the thorn in his side to keep him from the massive revelation that he’d gotten? He had the accuser following him around, reminding him of how he persecuted Christians, how he killed Christians. And even though he was a scholar… plus he lived under the law. So he had all these things. And so then when he had the encounter with God and his name changed, his identity changed from Saul to Paul. He made a decision that day. The only thing that matters is what Jesus did on the cross for me. That’s it? Nothing else. Because what He did on the cross for me that day was every curse was completely made null and void. Let’s just imagine that right now. That is we pray today as we pray for our country, as we pray for our families, as we pray regarding anything that Holy Spirit would have us pray, that the one thing we keep in mind, the foundational thing, Jesus was not stoned. He was crucified. He hung on that tree! And the foundation of that whole thing is the curse has to show up reversed. It has to show up null and void because we have resolved to know one thing. And one thing only: Jesus crucified.

The resolve of the Church to know nothing, to be acquainted with nothing, to make a display of the knowledge of nothing and be conscious of nothing among you, except Christ and Him crucified. Talk about changing the lens through which we look at situations. Talk about changing the lens through which we pray over things, knowing that Jesus already finished it.

In Matthew 27, “Now at the feast of the Passover the governor was in the habit of setting free for the people any one prisoner, whom they chose. And at that time they had a notorious prisoner named Barabbas. And when they had assembled for this purpose, Pilot said to them, Whom do you want me to set free for you? Barabbas?” Here’s something that’s interesting too. And my friend Jackie, she said one day “I’m going to be like Barabbas. I’m gonna take my freedom.” Okay. But here’s the deal. Did you know? Barabbas means “son of the Father” Bar abbas! Come on! So you’ve got the son of God and then you’ve got Barabbas whose name means son of the Father. Really? I mean, God did that too. And there’s like this prophetic riddle of God saying, Yeah the crowd was influenced to do My well and say “crucify Him” so that everyone could belong to Me. I mean, how can we not expect massive awakening to just increase on the earth through this filter?

Holy Spirit, you’re brilliant! He knows about absolutely everything that’s happening and He’s moving the enemy like a chess piece and the game’s already been won. And it’s very simple. We resolve to know one thing—Jesus and Him crucified. And then even if you go back to the scene of the crime, the crowd got it done. By yelling, “Crucify Him” and set Barabbas, son of the Father, free. Really? Yeah! That’s the deal.

So when they had assembled for this purpose, Pilot said to them, “Who do you want me to set free for you? Barabbas or Jesus, who is called Christ? Isn’t that interesting? “For he knew that it was because of envy that they had handed Him over to him.” So God even used envy to work for our good. How about that! “Also, while he was seated on the judgment bench, his wife sent him a message saying ‘have nothing to do with that just and upright man.’” Are things like that happening today? “Have nothing to do with that just and upright man.” But if God is for me, what can man do to me? So even when people of influence are turning against you, if God is for you, what can man do to you? The plan is still being played out because the Word is constant. For I’ve had a painful experience today in a dream because of Him. It’s your fault, Jesus. “But the chief priests and the elders prevailed on the people to ask for Barabbas and put Jesus to death. Again, the governor said to them, which of the two do you wish me to release for you? And they said, Barabbas. Pilot said to them, then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ? They all replied, let Him be crucified. And he said, Why? What has He done that is evil? But they shouted all the louder. Let Him be crucified.” The whole time they are playing out the plan. The whole time, God is moving them like chess pieces to complete His Word. And that’s your God.

In the Passion translation verse 24. “When Pilot realized that a riot was about to break out and that it was useless to try to reason with the crowd, it was useless. This thing was happening. He sent for a basin of water and after washing his hands in front of the people, he said I’m innocent of the blood of this righteous man. So even those in power knew He was innocent, they turned against Him.”

Is that happening right now? Is God’s plan being played out? Yes. The responsibility for His death is now yours. And then verse 25, “The crowd replied, let His blood be on us and on our children.” Wow! But then the goodness of God turns that statement into let His blood be available to us and available to our children. So the prophetic picture of the son of the Father Barabbas being a part of the great exchange, Jesus being crucified on his behalf and then His blood being available for those that shouted “Crucify.” His blood was available for those that shouted crucify for them and their children. And that was Paul’s revelation.

You know what? I was responsible for all of this. But now the only thing I care about is that He died for me. And He didn’t just die for me, He took on the curse for me. And He didn’t just take on the curse for me, He defeated the curse for me. That was the one thing. Nothing can hinder you when that’s the one thing you have decided to know.

Holy Spirit, you just minister that to us today. You minister to us like you ministered to Saul, who got a name change, Paul, who said he was the chief of sinners and then said he got the revelation that he was completely innocent. And out of that came the ecclesia of which we’re about to get into here.
