Is 35:1-2
The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;

Even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the LORD,
The excellency of our God.

Is 41:19
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree,
The myrtle and the oil tree;

And the box tree together,

For the LORD will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the LORD;

So they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the wasted, desolate, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ 36 Then the nations which are left all around you shall know that I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it.”
37 ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them: I will increase their men like a flock. 38 Like a [a]flock offered as holy sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem on its [b]feast days, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.” ’ ”

Is 40:3-5
The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
“Prepare the way of the LORD;
Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.

The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough places smooth;
5 The glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

  • Father we just thank You for Your Word. We just thank You for Your Spirit. We just thank You for Your presence here this morning. We magnify the name of Jesus. We say, “Let the name that’s above every name be exalted this morning. Be exalted in our lives. Be exalted in our families. Be exalted in the Church. Be exalted in our Nation.” We bless the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! This is Your day Lord and we rejoice and are glad in it.
  • Oh, Father we hold up our Nation this morning. Oh, Father God we ask for a fresh outpouring of Your Spirit—saturate the hearts of men. Prepare their hearts to receive the Word that will transform their lives. Ha! Ha! Oh, we bind every work of darkness that would try to influence our government. We uproot you, in the name of Jesus. We stand in our authority and declare, “The gospel shall be preached in this Nation—freely and without hindrance.” Father that the fear of the Lord be upon our government, from the Prime Minister’s office to city councils; to our judges in the Supreme Court—the fear of the Lord. The purposes of God shall stand for this Nation and the people. Father grant unto our government the wisdom and discernment they need for these days. Give them ears to hear—Father that they may be willing to do what You’re instructing them. We cover Canada under the blood of Jesus. We cover all those who guard this Nation: our military, police forces, and our border guards. We say, “No evil shall prevail against this Nation and Her people.” Angels on assignment to protect ad preserve. These are day of glory in the Nation of Canada. The days when Jesus Christ shall be exalted in this Nation. Canada fulfilling Her mandate in these last days. Oh, we thank You Father. Days of glory! Days of glory! Days of glory! Ha! Ha! Yes! Yes! We’re saying it, “These shall be days of glory in this Nation, days of glory in the Church.”
  • Father strengthen the spiritual leaders to stand and declare Your Word with boldness in these days. To preach the gospel—to teach the people the way they should go according to Your Word. Strengthen those weak knees, those weighed down this morning—a fresh anointing of Your Spirit. Strength in their inner man to stand and having done all to stand. We cover them under the blood. We come against the spirit of depression, discouragement, worry, fear. Holy Spirit touch their hearts afresh this morning—that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding would be their portion. And that the joy of the Lord will be their strength. Father as they are faithful to You, provide spirit, soul, and body; every financial need met. No lack in their ministries according to Your riches in glory, we ask these things in Jesus’ name.
  • We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Shalom over the Nation of Israel. A fresh wind of Your Spirit Lord God blowing over that Nation touching the hearts of the people and awakening them Father God. Where their senses are dull to the truth of Your Word, Holy Spirit awake them. Father grant Her government the wisdom they need this morning. Ha! Ha! Oh, they know the right decisions to make. O,h they’re not getting caught in the enemy’s traps, they’re not being deceived, because Father God, You’re telling them what they need to know. Thank You Father. Thank You Father. Thank You Lord.

Matthew 10:16– 23 (AMPC) – 16 Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves; be wary and wise as serpents, and be innocent (harmless, guileless, and without falsity) as doves. 17 Be on guard against men [whose way or nature is to act in opposition to God]; for they will deliver you up to councils and flog you in their synagogues, 18 And you will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a witness to bear testimony before them and to the Gentiles (the nations). 19 But when they deliver you up, do not be anxious about how or what you are to speak; for what you are to say will be given you in that very hour and moment,
20 For it is not you who are speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. 21 Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children will take a stand against their parents and will have them put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake, but he who perseveres and endures to the end will be saved [from spiritual disease and death in the world to come]. 23 When they persecute you in one town [that is, pursue you in a manner that would injure you and cause you to suffer because of your belief], flee to another town; for truly I tell you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

We are praying for the labourers this morning.

Prayed…

  • Father we just thank You for Your presence this morning. You’ve placed Your Spirit within us. You said in Luke 10:19 (AMPC)Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.
  • We’re standing in our authority Father—we’re infused and empowered by Your Spirit to go forth and minister the gospel of Jesus Christ. Father we cover every labourer, that’s going forth this morning, under the blood of Jesus. We declare, “Angels on assignment to protect, preserve, and keep them from hard and evil.” Ha! Ha! The labourers come with a word in season, it’s an anointed word that will lift burdens and destroy yokes. They go into the dark places; doors are opening where there were no doors before. Door’s to men’s hearts. Door’s to families; cities; nations—God doors that no man can close. We bind the spirit of fear, in the name of Jesus. Father You’ve not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind. And You have promised Father to keep us according to 2 Thessalonians 3:3 (AMPC)Yet the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen [you] and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil [one]. Labourers established in the Word. They’re full of the Spirit. And no weapon formed against them shall prosper. And as they go forth Father, we thank You that You’re providing for all their needs according to Your riches in glory. No lack, no lack—they go out in the overflow. They are blessed so they can be a blessing to a those they minister to. Ha! Ha! They shall not only minister spiritual things, but Father You will give them provisions to meet the natural needs of those in lack. We thank You for this Father. We thank You for strength, for wisdom, for discernment—that Father, they walk in the gifts of the Spirit. Many, many shall hear the Word and turn and receive salvation. We thank You Father. We thank You for it in Jesus” name.

1 Tim 2:1-4

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Luke 5:1-11
So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, 2 and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. 3 Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat.
4 When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”
5 But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” 6 And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. 7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!”
9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; 10 and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” 11 So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.

  • the disciples had toiled all night and caught nothing: NOTHING!
    (not even a minnow!)
  • very discouraging for commercial fisherman I’m sure
  • …but don’t you know, at the obedience to His WORD (rhema: a specific, quickened word that deals exactly with the situation faced),
  • they received a boat sinking net breaking catch
    (KJV a draught: a haul, booty – a shoal of fish in their nets)
  • Jesus then goes on to say that from now on they’ll be “catching men”
  • I saw this as a pattern for ministry…when it seems like you are weary from toiling, hang in there – there’s a RHEMA WORD coming that when obeyed – will bring in a harvest beyond your ability to hold

We are praying for Pastor Ric and Deborah and Eagles Nest Church.

Prayed…

  • Father I thank You. This is Your day Lord and we rejoice and are glad in it. We give You thanksgiving and praise. We say worthy is the Lamb that was slain—to the King of kings and Lord of lords we give You honour and worship. Oh thank You Father, thank You Father, thank You Father.
  • Oh a Church without spot, wrinkle or blemish. A Church bold to declare the Word—not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation. Oh we lift up our harvest this morning. We lift up the harvest Lord God, world wide. We call them forth, in the name of Jesus. Give them up! Give them up! Let My people go! We call our harvest out of this city, out of the Niagara region; out of the four corners of Canada. We cover them under the blood of Jesus. Ears to hear, ears to hear the Word and receive—yielding to the Spirit. Oh we bind every work of darkness. We bind false religions, humanistic thinking, everything that would exalt itself above the Word of God—we pull you down, in the name of Jesus. Oh labourers are rising up, they’re awake and busy about the Father’s business. Father we ask boldness, courageous hearts that are not afraid of the faces of men, but moved by the Spirit of God.
  • Oh we lift up every governmental office in this nation of Canada. We cover them under the blood Lord. Father give them Your wisdom—the fear of the Lord be upon them today. Every work of darkness, we bind it—you will not influence our government. Every covert and hidden work of Satan is exposed, in Jesus’ name. Light comes and darkness is dispelled. Every hidden thing shall be seen and shouted from the mountain top. Father we hold up the upcoming elections, have Your way. Shiftings and changes, movings and positionings that’s what Your doing Father for kingdom purposes.
  • Oh Father, strengthen Israel this morning. We ask You to strengthen and preserve Her. Provide for Her Lord as only You can. Oh grant unto the government You wisdom, Your discernment—move in their midst Father. Revive Your people! Revive Your people! The Word running swiftly throughout the land piercing the hearts of men. We cover the military under the blood of Jesus. Oh the plans of the enemy being exposed. Military leaders being led by the Spirit. Strategic! Strategic! Strategic! Ha! Ha! They know what to do. They know how to do it—because Father, You’re giving them the strategy. Angels on assignment. Angels on assignment amongst Your people. Oh we thank You Father. We thank You Lord.

Colossians 2:1-15 (TPT) – 1 I wish you could know how much I have struggled for you and for the church in Laodicea, and for the many other friends I’ve yet to meet. 2 I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ. 3 For our spiritual wealth is in Him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge. 4 I want you to know this so that no one will come and lead you into error through their persuasive arguments and clever words. 5 Even though I’m separated from you geographically, my spirit is present there with you. And I’m overjoyed to see how disciplined and deeply committed you are because you have such a solid faith in Christ, the Anointed One. New Life in Christ 6 In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with Him! 7 Your spiritual roots go deeply into His life as you are continually infused with strength, encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed and enriched by your devotion to Him! 8 Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed One. 9 For He is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in Him. We are completely filled with God as Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and authority in the universe! 11 Through our union with Him we have experienced circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us. 12 For we’ve been buried with Him into His death. Our “baptism into death” also means we were raised with Him when we believed in God’s resurrection power, the power that raised Him from death’s realm. 13 This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp. But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins! 14 He cancelled out every legal violation we had on our record and the old arrest warrant that stood to indict us. He erased it all—our sins, our stained soul—He deleted it all and they cannot be retrieved! Everything we once were in Adam has been placed onto His cross and nailed permanently there as a public display of cancellation. 15 Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were His!

We are praying for the Body of Christ to remain faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ. That we each will hold fast to the truth of God’s Word. Seeking His wisdom, discernment and understanding—not allowing men to turn us away from the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Prayed…

  • We seek Your face this morning Father God. We ask You for the help of Your Holy Spirit to keep us on the straight and narrow path that leads to life. Father, where Your people have gone on the wide path bring them back, in Jesus’ name. Oh that we would continue our journey with You, allowing You to shape our lives. Oh that our roots Lord God would go deep in You—rooted and grounded in Your love. Oh Father God build us up on that firm foundation which is Christ Jesus the Anointed One. Help us to be strong in our faith Father—going from faith to faith and glory to glory. Father that we would be a people full of thanksgiving and praise for all that You’ve done and all that You’re doing. Father help us to come away from the world and cleave to Jesus. Father, we bind and uproot that spirit of deception—that lying spirit that would try and deceive the Church. Father I thank You all the fullness of Your glory dwells within us. Father we lay aside every sin and every weight that so easily besets us. Father that we would run this race, forgetting the things that are behind and pressing towards the mark of the high calling, in Jesus’ name. That Your Church would have the mind of Christ, yielded to the Holy Spirit. Led of the Spirit—Your people are led of the Spirit not of the flesh. Your Church Lord God—people of faith, people who are determined, our faces set like fling. Holding fast to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Holding fast to Your Spirit. We pray for a revival in Your Church Father. An awakening unto righteousness. Hearts that are contrite and yielded to the Spirit. Father that our light would shine so that men would see and glorify Jesus. That everything that is not of You Father we would shake it off—loosed from the chains of sin that would try to bind us. We bind that spirit of condemnation that would try to infiltrate Your Church. No more condemnation, but when conviction comes we are swift to repent and we thank You Father. We thank You Father. A consecrated and set apart people. Oh we thank You Father. We are the triumphant Church. We will be the glorious Bride that You said we would be and we thank You.

Psalm 23 Amp
The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me],
I shall not want.
2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still and quiet waters.
3 He refreshes and restores my soul (life);
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the [sunless] [a]valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You have anointed and refreshed my head with [b]oil;
My cup overflows.6
Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life,

  • Father we lift up that nation of Canada, Ontario, and the Niagara Region where You planted us. We pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-4 for the federal, provincial, regional and municipal government this morning. We pray for divine influence on their souls and divine influence on their spirit. I thank You Father You’re placing divine men and women in those seats of authority. Our Lord shall have dominion from sea to sea. Those that have hardened hearts and oppose God, You’re removing and replacing with those with submitted heart. Every prophetic word spoken will come to pass, we believe it, in Jesus name. We declare that light prevails over darkness and truth prevails over lies. I thank You Father for a mighty shift in our nation. You declared this would be our fines hour and that we will bring healing to the nations. Father we are not moved by what we see at the federal level—we stand on You word. I thank You Father for that mighty shift. Father and we shall see the fruit of it in our next election.
  • Father we pray for Israel. Father, their facing elections—in the natural their seems like there’s much confusion and their enemies are surrounding them.

I thank You Father You said all Israel shall be saved. They will seek You for God’s will and who to vote for—supernatural wisdom for this hour. We speak to that spirit that aspires to divide, shut up, in Jesus name. They’re hearing Your Spirit and word and become one for the decisions they have to make.

They will meet every challenge, in Jesus name. Thank You for preserving the population—every man, every women, every child. Every plot revealed before the trigger is pulled. Supernatural intelligence coming to the military leaders, nothing shall take them by surprise.

We speak peace to Israel during their election—peace on every border, in Jesus name.

Joshua 3: 3 – 5
and they commanded the people, saying, “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. 4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.”

5 And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”

Joshua 1 : 9 – 11
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 “Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, ‘Prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess.’ ”

Joshua 3 : 17
Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

Prayed…

  • We are going to be a blessing. We have wisdom to understand they are our hosts and we are their guest. We shall be grateful to them. We will help where we are able to, spiritually and naturally. Even if there are little glitches, the leadership will work it out. It’s a time of peace. We are on dry ground. Father You have already revealed parts of the blueprint in this short season and Your going to reveal the place for us to buy. At both ends of the Jordan there is going to be peace as we go to the St. Paul Street and next into our own property. We thank You.
  • Father You’re going to open a door to impact our city and Niagara and great favour is upon us. Where we land—great favour to possess the property. They’re going to want to bless us. I thank You Father for this mighty shift in the Spirit—the wilderness experience is done and over. Our congregation and leadership, nothing is going to remain the same. A supernatural transition in the Spirit. We know that 60 St. Paul Street is the dry ground to get us to the promise land. The Word of the Lord is a lamp unto our feet. We pray for that Hispanic congregation and the place we’re going to land when we get to the other side. And we shall do it with great joy and expectation. Ha! Ha! Ha! “I hear the Spirit saying, you have no idea what I am about to do.” It shall be herald it shall be voiced abroad. It shall be declared no more, where is their God, for God is in their midst. Done deal! Done deal! Done deal! Ha! Ha! Ha! I hear the Spirit say, “you’re burning some bridges, you’re never going back.” For it truly is a new day for this House, company and people. It truly is a new day. We thank You Lord for everything You’ve already done for us. Father we thank You so much for all that You’re able to do for us. Great favour. I thank You for supernatural increase. Supernatural prosperity in every area—people, finance, health. A mark of our congregation is walking in supernatural health and prosperity.

The following was taught and prayed through during our 6 a.m. prayer time with Joanne Summers

1 Tim 2:1-4
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Zephaniah 3:14-20 (AMPC) – 14 Sing, O Daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice, be in high spirits and glory with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem [in that day]. 15 [For then it will be that] the Lord has taken away the judgments against you; He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, even the Lord [Himself], is in the midst of you; [and after He has come to you] you shall not experience or fear evil any more. 16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear not, O Zion. Let not your hands sink down or be slow and listless. 17 The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing. 18 I will gather those belonging to you [those Israelites in captivity] who yearn and grieve for the solemn assembly [and the festivals], on whom [their exile and inability to attend services at Jerusalem have brought derision and] the reproach of it is a burden. 19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all those who afflict you; I will save the limping [ones] and gather the outcasts and will make them a praise and a name in every land of their shame. 20 At that time I will bring you in; yes, at that time I will gather you, for I will make you a name and a praise among all the nations of the earth when I reverse your captivity before your eyes, says the Lord.

Prayed…

  • Father we thank You. We give You praise, glory, and honour this morning. We magnify the precious name of Jesus.
  • Days of great deliverance. Oh, Father You’re bringing us into great and awesome days of deliverance, rescue and release, in Jesus’ name. Captives are being released this morning, in Jesus’ name. Father You’re releasing them from those chains of sin Lord God—a great release. Father we bind every work of darkness that would hold people bound. You are the Great Deliverer; the Great Healer; the Great Restorer of the lost. We bind the spirit of pride. We bind that spirit that deceives, in Jesu’s name. Oh scales of darkness are coming off peoples eyes. Father in the name of Jesus we cry out for a working of the Spirit on the harvest—hearts being touched. Wrong mindsets being broken, in Jesus’ name. We cover the harvest with the blood of Jesus which preserves life. Damascus road experiences. Father those who feel like Peter when he betrayed his Lord, they’re coming back and being restored. We bind that spirit of condemnation, in the name of Jesus. Father I thank You You’re sending forth Your labourers into the harvest field. These are the days of the great reaping, in Jesus’ name. They are coming with a word in season. A piercing Word they won’t be able to ignore it—piercing to the very core of their being.
  • Oh, we call forth our harvest out of the government. Touch and convict their hearts of sin. We lift up the Prime Minister and his office; the federal, provincial and municipal government; the mayors offices; city councils; judges—all who sit in seats of authority. The educators; high school teachers; university professors. Father we declare there is a right mind coming to them. We bind that perverse thinking that would lead our young people astray. Grant unto these in authority Your wisdom. We pull down everything that would exalt itself above the Word—above the Truth. Father have Your way in the upcoming elections—it’s God ordered. Canada is lining up to do what You’re calling her to do. We thank You. We cover Canada under the blood of Jesus. Wisdom for our military; police forces and border guards—Lord those in our intelligence offices. Exposure—every covert operation of the enemy is exposed, in Jesus’ name.
  • Peace to Jerusalem! Peace to Jerusalem! Peace to Jerusalem—to the people of Israel! Father give them Your peace. Psalm 83 prayed. Father we pray for Israel’s enemies. We call forth the harvest out of their midst. A great revival in the Muslim nations. Walls of resistance are coming down. Contrite hearts—hearts softened by the Spirit—to the glory of God. To the glory of God! To the glory of God! The gospel is penetrating the Muslim nations. Light coming into dark places and darkness is being dispelled, in Jesus’ name. We ask for Your wisdom for Israel’s government—a discerning of the times and seasons, an ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying. We cover them under the blood of Jesus. Father we pray for all those that do the work of the ministry—we cover them under the blood. Divine health. A release of finances and provisions, buildings and land—whatever they need according to Your riches in glory. Grant unto them open doors Lord God. Open doors! Open doors into their government—yes open doors even with their government. They’re bringing the Word that will pierce the heart of the government. Conviction comes—wrong mindsets being broken, in Jesus’ name.

This is what our God has done: Colossians 2:15 (TPT) – Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were His!

As I was in prayer on Friday morning I heard the word “dispossess.” God has already dispossessed the enemy of all that belongs to us. We are now commanded to go in and possess (receive) our inheritance (people, lands, finances, supplies etc.).

Definition of dispossess: evicted, as from a dwelling, land, etc.; ousted; to put (a person) out of possession, especially of real property; to banish, kick out, heave out, banish etc.

Deuteronomy 9:1-3 (DARBY) – 1 Hear, Israel! Thou art to pass over the Jordan this day, to enter in to possess nations greater and mightier than thou, cities great and walled up to heaven, 2 a people great and tall, the sons of the Anakim, whom thou knowest, and of whom thou hast heard [say], Who can stand before the sons of Anak! 3 Know then this day, that Jehovah thy God is He that goeth over before thee, a consuming fire; He will destroy them, and He will cast them down before thee, and thou shalt dispossess them and cause them to perish quickly, as Jehovah hath said unto thee.

Numbers 14:6-9 (EXP) – 6 Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who had explored [spied on] the land,….. 9 Don’t turn [rebel] against the Lord! Don’t be afraid of the people in that land! We will chew them up. They have no protection, but the Lord is with us. So don’t be afraid of them.”

• We declare this morning there is no rebellion in our midst against the Lord; God is with us—no fear, no doubt of any kind: 2 Timothy 1:7 (TPT) – For God will never give you the spirit of fear,[a] but the Holy Spirit who gives you mighty power, love, and self-control.

Footnotes: [a] That is, fearing men. The fear of God prevents us from fearing other.

• Remember what the Word of God says: Matthew 19:26 (AMPC) – But Jesus looked at them and said, With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.

Luke 1:37 (AMPC) – For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

• It is the power of God that makes what seems impossible possible. Because nothing is impossible with God. We are now standing in the place of receiving what is our as promised by God.

We (at Eagles Nest) are sending up our praise and thanksgiving this morning. We are entering the time of possessing what God has dispossessed from our enemy. In unity we are hearing and responding to the question, “Who’s report shall you believe?”—our response is, “We shall believe the report of the Lord.” We are declaring, by faith, that we are possessing and we will be, all that God has said – Jeremiah 33:9 (AMPC) – And [Jerusalem/Eagles Nest] shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth that hear of all the good I do for it (them), and they shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace, prosperity, security, and stability I provide for it (them). (personalized)

We are marching forward; the walls have been removed—HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD! Joshua 6:20 (VOICE) – Then the people (Eagles Nest) shouted, and the trumpets blasted. The noise of the voices and trumpets rose higher and higher, and the thick walls of Jericho collapsed, just as God had promised. When the wall fell before them (Eagles Nest), they rushed straight ahead and took the city (St. Catharines – personalized)…,

Prayed…

  • Father You said, wherever two or three are gathered You’re in their midst. We know You’re here this morning and we thank You. We thank You Holy Spirit for assisting us to pray the will of God this morning. We align ourselves with You. We declare this morning, this is a unified congregation. One mind; one heart; one spirit. Father help us to remain in agreement with the leadership of this House—no schisms, no disruptions, no doubts, no unbelief. Father we declare, we are a people of faith and faith inherits the promise. We are a House that rejoices and praises even before we see it, we call it done, in the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! According to Your riches in glory Father—the land, the finances are ours. We are a blessed and favoured people because God is in our midst and You make the way. Yes we shall see our harvest. We declare, they’re flooding the gates and entering. Merging and converging—as You said Father, and we declare—there’s a people to merge and converge with us and we call them forth, in the name of Jesus. Oh, multiple doors opening to Pastor Ric and Deborah. Ha! It’s the season of the open doors Father. Ephesians 1:17, Ephesians 3:16-19 prayer. Father I thank You that Pastor Ric and Deborah and the leadership of this House are filled with all the fullness of God. They have the mind of Christ. We cover this congregation under the blood of Jesus as we go forth. Every step forward is bringing us to the place of our inheritance. We will not be stopped for You are with us. It’s for the glory of God. This is for the glory of God—that the name of Jesus will be lifted high. All will see it and will know that our God is with us. Thank You Lord. Ha! Ha! Not one feeble amongst us! Not one feeble amongst us! Thank You Lord. Thank You Father.

  • Prayed for Brake Ministries as they head to Indonesia.

James 2 The Message (MSG)
The Royal Rule of Love
1-4 My dear friends, don’t let public opinion influence how you live out our glorious, Christ-originated faith. If a man enters your church wearing an expensive suit, and a street person wearing rags comes in right after him, and you say to the man in the suit, “Sit here, sir; this is the best seat in the house!” and either ignore the street person or say, “Better sit here in the back row,” haven’t you segregated God’s children and proved that you are judges who can’t be trusted?
5-7 Listen, dear friends. Isn’t it clear by now that God operates quite differently? He chose the world’s down-and-out as the kingdom’s first citizens, with full rights and privileges. This kingdom is promised to anyone who loves God. And here you are abusing these same citizens! Isn’t it the high and mighty who exploit you, who use the courts to rob you blind? Aren’t they the ones who scorn the new name—“Christian”—used in your baptisms?
8-11 You do well when you complete the Royal Rule of the Scriptures: “Love others as you love yourself.” But if you play up to these so-called important people, you go against the Rule and stand convicted by it. You can’t pick and choose in these things, specializing in keeping one or two things in God’s law and ignoring others. The same God who said, “Don’t commit adultery,” also said, “Don’t murder.” If you don’t commit adultery but go ahead and murder, do you think your non-adultery will cancel out your murder? No, you’re a murderer, period.
12-13 Talk and act like a person expecting to be judged by the Rule that sets us free. For if you refuse to act kindly, you can hardly expect to be treated kindly. Kind mercy wins over harsh judgment every time.
Faith in Action
14-17 Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
18 I can already hear one of you agreeing by saying, “Sounds good. You take care of the faith department, I’ll handle the works department.”
Not so fast. You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together HAND IN GLOVE.
19-20 Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? That’s just great. Demons do that, but what good does it do them? Use your heads! Do you suppose for a minute that you can cut faith and works in two and not end up with a corpse on your hands?
21-24 Wasn’t our ancestor Abraham “made right with God by works” when he placed his son Isaac on the sacrificial altar? Isn’t it obvious that faith and works are yoked partners, that faith expresses itself in works? That the works are “works of faith”? The full meaning of “believe” in the Scripture sentence, “Abraham believed God and was set right with God,” includes his action. It’s that mesh of believing and acting that got Abraham named “God’s friend.” Is it not evident that a person is made right with God not by a barren faith but by faith fruitful in works?
25-26 The same with Rahab, the Jericho harlot. Wasn’t her action in hiding God’s spies and helping them escape—that SEAMLESS UNITY of BELIEVING and DOING —what counted with God? The very moment you separate body and spirit, you end up with a corpse. Separate faith and works and you get the same thing: a corpse.
The Message (MSG)
Luke 16:12 NKJV
And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?

Praying for a renewing of minds through the Word of God to bring down strongholds.

Rick Renner – Sparkling Gems
Two Kinds of Strongholds
May 30, 2016

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations.…
2 Corinthians 10:4,5

If you want to be free from every stronghold of the enemy in your life, you have to understand that there are two kinds of strongholds: rational and irrational. The rational strongholds are the more difficult to deal with — because they usually make sense!

Paul refers to these rational strongholds when he says, “Casting down imaginations….” The word “imaginations” is taken from the Greek word logismos, which is where we get the word “logic,” as in “logical thinking.” Thank God for a good, sound mind, but even a sound mind must be submitted to the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, your mind will develop a stronghold of natural reasoning that starts to dictate all kinds of lies to your life. I call these rational strongholds.

The reason I call them rational strongholds is that they are strongholds in the mind that make sense! You see, your logical mind will always try to talk you out of obeying God. In fact, if you don’t take charge of your mind, it will begin to completely dominate and control your obedience to God. It will tell you that you can’t afford to obey the Lord and that it isn’t a good time to step out in faith. Your natural mind will come up with a whole host of logical reasons to explain why you shouldn’t do what the Spirit of God is telling you to do.

Second, there are irrational strongholds. These primarily have to do with completely unrealistic fears and worries, such as a fear of contracting a terminal disease, a fear of dying early in life, an abnormal fear of rejection, and so forth. These types of irrational strongholds in the mind, emotions, and imagination will normally play their course and then dissipate. But if harassing thoughts persist in your mind and insist on controlling you mentally and emotionally, you must deal with them straightforwardly with the Word of God.

In Second Corinthians 10:5, Paul says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” Notice that Paul doesn’t say one thing about bringing the devil into captivity. Rather, he tells you to take every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

The devil tries to invade your life through lies that he plants in your brain. If you don’t take your thoughts captive, it will be just a matter of time before the devil starts using those lies to create mental and emotional strongholds for the purpose of keeping you in bondage. But if you take your thoughts captive, then your thoughts cannot take you captive!

Whether those strongholds are rational or irrational, you can take authority over them and cast them down! So quit listening to every ol’ lie that devil tries to sink into your brain, and start taking those thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ! Pull down every mental or emotional stronghold in your life with the supernatural weapons of warfare God has given you!

My Prayer for Today
Lord, help me to see any area of my life that is dominated by rational or irrational strongholds. Forgive me for allowing the devil to sink his lies into my mind, and help me now to uproot and cast down every one of his lies. I know that Your Word will renew my mind to think in accordance with You, so I am asking You today to help me make Your Word a priority in my life!
I pray this in Jesus’ name!

My Confession for Today
I boldly declare that my mind is free from the devil’s lies! I think God’s thoughts; I meditate on God’s Word; and my brain is spot-free from the rational and irrational strongholds that Satan would like to plant inside me. Because of God’s Word working in me, I am completely free!
I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

Prayed…

  • Father we come to You in Jesus name. We lift up the body of Christ and we say it is time to renew Your mind. It is time to bring the rational and irrational thoughts into captivity. It is time to feed on the Word, it is time to meditate on the Word and renew your minds.
  • God said we have a sound mind. Therefore we lift up the body of Christ.
  • Thank You that the body of Christ knows Your voice and gives no place to the devil. They take no thought; they take no ideas or suggestions that are not of You. They are quick to respond.
  • Father we plead the blood of Jesus over their minds and say there is a loosening in Jesus name. Lord whatever the Spirit tells them to do they will do it.
  • Take no thought.
  • Thank You that the body of Christ is to know who they are in You.
  • We bind the spirit of deception in Jesus name. The devil came to steal, kill and destroy. We say renew Your mind with the Word of life in Jesus name.
  • Father we declare over every age group that they have the mind of Christ. Thank You that they are setting their minds on You and the things above. They are giving no place to the devil in Jesus name.
  • Hallelujah. Thank You Lord.
