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

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.

Prayer directive taken from
The Bait of Satan by John Bevere 
Excerpt from The Heart’s True Condition subtitle

One way the enemy keeps a person in an offended state is to keep the offense hidden, cloaked with pride. Pride will keep you from admitting your true condition…Pride keeps you from dealing with the truth. It distorts your vision…Pride hardens your heart and dims the eyes of your understanding. It keeps you from the change of heart-repentance-that will set you free…

Prayed…

  • Prayed 1Tim 2:1-4
  • Prayed for the Harvest
  • Prayed for Eagles Nest
  • I bound the spirit of pride and loosed humble, repentant hearts.

I woke on Sunday morning, December 2nd with Pastor Ric, Deborah, and Eagles’ Nest coming to mind as soon as I opened my eyes. I heard the words “Break Out and Break Forth.” As I searched the Scriptures I was also lead to a prophetic word by Kim Potter.

2 Samuel 5:20 (AMPC) – And David came to Baal-perazim, and he smote them there, and said, The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like the bursting out of great waters. So he called the name of that place Baal-perazim [Lord of breaking through].

• Definition of “break out” – 1. a violent or forceful break from a restraining condition or situation especially: a military attack to break from encirclement. 2. to develop or emerge with suddenness or force, to make a break from a restraining condition or situation

• Definition of “break forth” – burst out suddenly; emerge

Isaiah 45:2 (AMPC) – I will go before you and level the mountains [to make the crooked places straight]; I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut asunder the bars of iron.

Deuteronomy 31:8 (AMPC) – It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit—depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm].

Deuteronomy 1:30 (VOICE) – You won’t have to fight this battle yourselves; the Eternal your God, who always goes ahead of you, will fight for you just as He did in Egypt—you saw Him do it!

Isaiah 44:23 (AMPC) – Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it; shout, you depths of the earth; break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest and every tree in it! For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, and He glorifies Himself in Israel.

“It’s a Time to Break Forth and Break Out!”
by Kim Potter, Dayton, TN – A New Thing Ministries – August 11, 2016

Dream of the Lord’s Feast

The Lord gave me a dream recently that I have pondered in my heart for days now. In the dream, the Lord had me expand my dining room area. I literally had to push out walls and move things around to make my dining room large enough for the feast the Lord said was coming.

By the time I was finished pushing out walls and enlarging my dining area, the finished room was seven to ten times the size of my current dining room. For several days, I was busy placing new tables and chairs into the room. There were several tables prepared, not only around the walls but also down the middle of the room all lined up and ready for feasting. As I completed the finishing touches, a minister friend of mine arrived from another city.

He sat down and laid his arm across the back of my sofa. “What are you doing here?” I asked. He explained that he had an announcement and it was such big news that he had to tell me in person. “So what are you doing?” he asked, as he glanced around the room. I began to jump up and down and dance around the dining room as I exclaimed, “I am getting ready for Thanksgiving!” Then the dream ended.

Enlarge the Place of Your Tent!

After considering this dream for a while, I then discussed it with God. He began to reveal many details to me. First, He took me to Isaiah 54:1-5 – “Sing, O barren, you who have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not laboured with child! For more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited. “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth.”

In the dream God was saying, “Enlarge the place of your tent,” so that it would be large enough to receive all He would provide during the time of feasting. It reminded me of the time years ago that God told me to enlarge my capacity to receive. I understood He meant I had to make room for what He was about to bring into my life. At the time, I felt I could receive anything He had for me, however, I learned in that season that I needed to increase my capacity to receive because what He had for me was so big that I wouldn’t have been able to receive it otherwise.

It’s a Time of Breaking Forth!

He was also saying, “Do not spare,” which meant, “Don’t be afraid that you will be expecting too big.” Let me encourage you – you can’t expect bigger than God can provide! Then He said, “Strengthen your stakes.” That means the walls, or stakes must be able to support what God is bringing into your life. I believe this goes along with the things God has been telling me lately about strengthening my faith in three areas: health, prosperity and protection. Finally, He said, “For you shall break forth!”

Oh, I just love that! It is time for us to break forth. We have been hearing words of prophecy for some time that we are in a “breaking through” season. Many have begun to doubt those words, but here again, God is saying, “You are about to break forth.” We are about to expand beyond our imagination. We need to prepare for the feast that is being prepared for us. The feast of all the things God has promised us!

Psalm 23:5 says, “God will prepare a table of feasting for us in the very presence of our enemies.” I believe that is exactly what God is doing right now – preparing a table for us, a table of feasting.

In the Bible, they only feasted at times of a celebration. In my dream, I danced and jumped up and down and said, “I am getting ready for Thanksgiving.” I was getting ready for Thanksgiving, but it wasn’t November. The dream was now, in this present time, not for something in the future. I know that what God was saying is: We are about to give thanks – to enter into a time of Thanksgiving for the awesome and wonderful things He is doing in our lives!

Over ten years ago, when I first began to walk through a season of challenge and loss, the Lord spoke something to me that I have not forgotten. He said, “Those who fight with you will feast with you.” At that time, there were many friends fighting with me, however, over the span of ten years most of those friends have left, and only a few remain. However, the ones that remained after the fire of that season are those who are about to feast with me.

I am preparing, making way, expanding and getting ready for that feast. It is the one that comes on the other side of the desert…praise GOD!

Friends, it is time to expand our cords – make large the place – and prepare our hearts. It is time to expand our capacity to receive. It’s feasting time in the presence of the Lord! It’s time to break out!

***

We are praying for Eagles Nest—for the breaking out and the breaking forth. This is the time for the sound of victory to be heard in the House—the God of the “breaking through” is with us. Isaiah 55:12 (VOICE) – For you will go out in joy, be led home in peace. And as you go the land itself will break out in cheers; the mountains and the hills will erupt in song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands.

Prayed…

  • Father we declare this morning that Eagles Nest is breaking out and breaking forth. The Lord of the breakthrough has gone before us and we’re breaking out and breaking forth, in the name of Jesus. Ha! Ha! Shouts of joy in the House! Shouts of victory in the House! We declare Psalm 118:15 (NKJV) over this House – The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly. Father we declare it, You’re doing mighty things in this House and for this House. You’re doing mighty things for everyone who stands with Pastor Ric and Deborah. Breakouts! Mountains of resistance being removed in the name of Jesus. Yes! Yes! Yes! It’s the time of the shout! It’s the time to declare, God is good! Our God is mighty! Our God is great! Our God is awesome! Nothing is impossible for our God. We lift up the name of Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus You reign over this congregation! We thank You. We lift up Pastor Ric, Deborah and the leadership of this House. We cover them under the blood. We say they prosper—body, soul and spirit. We say no sickness comes neigh unto their homes—we break it’s hold, in the name of Jesus. The blood! The blood! We declare each one of them shall fulfill their purpose, in the name of Jesus. They shall live and not die and declare the works of the Lord. Fortified in their spirit, by the Word and Your power. Thank You Lord. Thank You Father. Thank You Father. All grace abounds towards them as they lead this congregation. Glory be to the name of our God. Too much, too much will be the cry! Where can we give it! It’s too much! Thank You Lord. We are blessed to be a blessing. Thank You Lord. To the honour and glory of our God—let there be praise and thanksgiving.

  • Included in the prayer time following the directive

Smith Wigglesworth to Lester Sumrall in 1939

(WWII ready to break out) With tears rolling down his face Smith cried saying, “I probably won’t see you again now. My job is almost finished.” As he continued to pray he cried, “I see it, I see it!”

Brother Sumrall asked, “What do you see, what do you see?”

He said, “I see a healing revival coming right after World War II. It’ll be so easy to get people healed. I see it! I see it! I won’t be here for it, but you will be.” And there was a healing revival right after the war.

He continued to prophesy, “I see another one, I see people of all different denominations being filled with the Holy Ghost.” That was the Charismatic Revival. God raised up people during that era, like the Full Gospel Businessmen.

Then Brother Wigglesworth continued, “I see another move of God. I see auditoriums full of people, coming with notebooks. There will be a wave of teaching on faith and healing.” We did experience that wave he saw, and we call it the Word of Faith movement.

Then he prophesied, “After that, after the third wave,” he started sobbing. “I see the last day revival that’s going to usher in the precious fruit of the earth. It will be the greatest revival this world has ever seen! It’s going to be a wave of the gifts of the Spirit. The ministry gifts will be flowing on this planet earth. I see hospitals being emptied out, and they will bring the sick to churches where they allow the Holy Ghost to move.”

We prayed towards the fulfillment of this prophecy.

Prayed…

  • Father we come to You in the name of Jesus and we stand in agreement with the Word by Smith Wigglesworth about the last days revival ushering in the fruit of the earth. Thank You that the gifts of the Spirit are loosed and the ministry gifts are flowing
  • Thank You that the Holy Spirit will have His way in the church and we are seeing the sick healed and those who need deliverance are set free.
  • Thank You for the signs and wonders taking place. We declare it is the year of signs and wonders and extraordinary manifestations.
  • Thank You that the people are running to the glory. Thank You that today is the day of salvation.
  • Thank You that You are a merciful God. Thank You that each person is precious in Your sight.
  • Thank You that the labourers are recognizing the times and putting on the armour of Light. They are bold with no compromise. They are continually filled with the Holy Spirit. Thank You that the labourers are alert to the leading of the Holy Spirit and go out to the highways and byways because the fields are white. Thank You Lord.
  • Thank You that Your Word runs quickly and is being glorified in the earth. We cast the nets of salvation out this day. Thank You that prominent people and kings are hearing the Word and choose You as their Lord and Savior.
  • A full display of Your greatness, a full display of Your glory.
  • Thank You for the hard hearts that are softening. They are humbling themselves. The greater measure and the greater works. Thank You that You are causing the world leaders to hear the wisdom of God.
  • Thank You for Your Spirit filled churches. In those churches where they allow the Holy Spirit to move, we declare the glory of God in their services. We receive the manifested glory. We receive the manifested power, and we receive the manifested goodness of God.
  • It is the time of demonstrations and manifestations. Yes healing and demonstration will flow like rivers of water in the last days we are in.
  • Yes it is happening right here at Eagles Nest Church. People in the city and in the region will know that this is the place to be. This is the place where they will be set free. They are coming from far and wide. Yes they will come here but we will also have to go there.
  • We declare over the harvest throughout the nation ‘let it be known to you that the salvation of God has been sent and you will hear it’. [Acts 28:28]
  • You are hearing about Jesus. Salvation is rescue, deliverance, safety, release, preservation, forgiveness, healing prosperity, rectitude and restoration. Church salvation is total in scope for the total man, spirit, soul and body.
  • Thank You Lord. Hallelujah.

Prayer Summary for December 4, 2018

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

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.

I prayed out these prayers from “Chavda Ministries Prayers” for Israel and the Harvest:

A Prayer for Israel’s Security

Oh, Lord God of Israel, we put our trust in You for the security of the nation of Israel. Your Word declares Mount Zion will not be moved! Israel shall abide forever according to Your Word. Adorn her land with Jerusalem as her undivided capital. Send Your shalom down on her, on her land and on her people, like a wedding canopy. Surround Jerusalem and Your people with Your mighty warrior angels. From the ends of the earth call the tribes of the Lord to come up to the Testimony of Israel. We give thanks for her and pray You would set Your thrones there for judgment. Choose Jerusalem as Your chief joy, and make her a praise in the earth! Prosper all her stones. Prepare her citadels for Your appearing. May the souls of all who love Jerusalem prosper. Send shalom to her walls. Pour out wealth on her palaces. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and ask for peace upon Israel. Make all Israel’s enemies all around to be at peace with her.

Send forth Your angelic hosts to heed Your Word and carry out Your decrees for the apple of Your eye, Israel. Give supernatural protection within and without her borders. Break the scepter of every wicked ruler who plots evil against the land allotted to the righteous. Cleanse Israel’s borders of violence and bloodshed that those You love may not be tempted to do iniquity. Destroy the power and plan of every regime that threatens the peace and security of Your inheritance and the possession You have given them forever. As You showed favor to Esther in the evil day, we beseech You, stretch out the scepter of righteousness and justice to bring good to the upright in the land! Lead away all those who have dire plans, plots of terrorism, or schemes of destruction against Your people. Break apart any league among Israel’s enemies who would force her to compromise her inheritance for the sake of false peace. Destroy any and all nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran and other enemies of Israel and remove nuclear capability from their midst. Make the plans of nations that would oppress and take away Your people to come to nothing! Give Your spirit of wisdom and revelation to Israel’s leaders that they may have complete success in defending the nation You have given Your people. Show them, Lord, that there are more with them than against them! May all of Israel see that the mountains are full of horses and chariots of fire.

Ruler of the Nations, have mercy on America (Canada), and remember her alms and past acts of kindness for Israel and the Jewish people. As You have determined to bless those who bless Abraham’s seed, be kind to America (Canada). Take our nation by the hand, and cause her to walk uprightly towards Your people in our generation. Prevent our leaders or people from putting a hand against Your holy people or coming against Israel. Break the influence of Israel’s enemies among our leaders and in our economy. We cry out for America’s (Canada’s) destiny in Your good purposes to be utterly fulfilled. We bind her as a friend to Israel and the Jewish people. We pray that America (Canada) would not be named among those who would heave away Jerusalem for the sake of peace with her enemies. Confuse the plans that would make Jerusalem a heavy stone and injure America’s (Canada’s )back. Turn the hearts of all our leaders as water that flows to build up Israel according to Your plan. Defender of Israel, remember that American (Canadian) and allied troops destroyed the evil work prepared by one of Israel’s proven enemies. While there are yet those who would “drive Israel into the sea,” bring their works to nothing, but remember the coalition in mercy, and continue to guide and protect us. Cause all our works to be ordered of the Lord for Israel’s sake.

Shepherd of Israel, bring back the captive of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places. Cause Jerusalem to be built on its own mound and remain according to its own plan. Make her inhabitants know thanksgiving and a merry voice. Multiply and glorify them. Establish them as a congregation before You, and punish all who oppress them. Make all who govern her and all her nobility come from her midst and not from strangers. Send out Your Spirit over the whole valley of Israel that all her bones may stand upright like a mighty army and live! Secure the dwelling place of Jacob in the land You have given them. Cause their children’s children to lie down safely in the land of their fathers. Enact the covenant of peace that You have written to establish and multiply them. Raise up Your tabernacle which has fallen down. Set Your sanctuary in their midst forever. Let all nations see that You have set Israel apart for Yourself. Helper of Israel, do not allow her foot to be moved. Be her keeper and shade at her right hand keeping watch over her both day and night! Preserve Israel from evil. Preserve her going out and coming in both now and forever. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen!

“Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send Laborers….”

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, you and your whole household.”

Dear Lord of the Harvest, we ask You to send laborers into the fields around the world. In every place Your Word is preached, call and anoint fishers of men. Even in the most difficult places we pray the nets would be let down and be filled with a new, abundant, spiritual harvest in this hour. We pray for the nets of salvation to overflow with decisions for Christ in our homes, our churches, our schools, our prisons, our streets, our cities and nations. Revive Your work in the earth! Raise up and send preachers to proclaim the gospel. We pray that faith, revelation, and repentance will be given to all who hear their message and that salvation in the name of Jesus will be settled in the souls of men and women everywhere.

Great Shepherd of the sheep, seek and save the lost today! Shod your servants with the power of the gospel that men may be reconciled to You. Send Your servants, pour out the Holy Spirit, and release the reapers, Your angels, to bring those who have not yet believed into Your fold. Where the preaching of the gospel is bound or prohibited, we pray for sovereign conversions in the manner of Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus. We pray for divine appointments and for a release of faith exercised from the heart to cause sinners to repent and salvation to abound. We ask for household salvation and intercede with those who are praying for lost loved ones. We harmonize with their prayers that these family members will come to Christ. Where there is one believing as Rahab at Jericho or Cornelius at Caesarea or the keeper of the prison at Thyatira, cause their righteousness and faith to be a beacon and a well of salvation springing up to testify and convict, to save and bring into salvation, all the members of a family or household. Father of Lights, let the light of Your Presence shine to illumine Your Son in even the darkest places!

Great Physician, we cry to You for those who are spiritually sick and dying without a revelation of faith in Christ. We pray for the spirit of holy conviction to shake the hearts of our citizens that they would no longer conform to this world but be transformed by the renewing of the mind. Send Your Holy Spirit through believing vessels to bring the word of faith and repentance to those who are thirsty for God. As Christ has shed His blood for the cleansing of the sins for all who will receive Him, we lay hold of His saving power and the full effects of His intercession as our High Priest before the throne of heaven as we ask for salvation of souls today

Lamb of God, cause Your Spirit to seek and save the lost in every corner of the land that Your Book of Life may be written in today with new names of those receiving eternal life through faith in Your death, burial and resurrection. You have declared that only the Father knows the hour of Your return, prepare the way we pray by the preaching of the gospel message and a great ingathering of souls in our day. Thank You for answering and sending power and grace from Your sanctuary. Jesus, Lover of our souls, as You stand knocking upon the door of men’s hearts, cause them to hear and answer that the nations will walk in heaven’s light, and kings will bring their splendor into it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Prophetic Word by Donna Pisani in Washington
November 30,1997

For am I not Lord of the harvest, saith the Lord. Have I not promised you and have I not said that this was the year of the harvest? Have I not spoken that? Listen well to My words, children. Listen to what I have to say to you this day. Listen to the details. For I say unto you I have taken time in making you a net. For the Lord would say unto thee I have taken time with each cord of the net saith the Lord, and I have made sure that each cord was stretched and pulled. I have made sure that each cord of the net was able to withstand the fiery heat of the day and the cool of the night. I was making sure, saith the Lord, that every cord of that net was able to withstand the storms that would rage in the seas, for I had a purpose for this net. For there were many nets that were cast into the sea that were not able to hold the fish, for the abundance of the fish, saith the Lord. But I say unto you, Oh, net, I have made you a mighty net, in the hands of thy God, and I have caused each cord to be intertwined with each other, saith the Lord. For in times past, there was resistance against the intertwining, but I say unto thee I have persisted in intertwining you. But thou art able to stand as one net, able to pull in the fish, saith the Lord. I say unto thee, My children, there are fish that shall be gathered into this net that don’t desire to be in the net, and shall flip and flop and even desire to get out. But because of the strength of the net they shall be caught and they shall stay within the harvest, saith the Lord. I say unto you, children, that there are fish on the right, fish on the left, to the North, the South, the East and the West. And they’ve been looking for the security of the net and I say unto you, children, I have promised you personally, I’ve promised you corporately -I’ve spoken that this was the year of the harvest. And you have not resisted the fiery trails. Oh, I’ve heard the complaints at times. And I’ve heard the times that you’ve even said within “Oh, Lord, when will this cease?” But I say unto you, children, if you only knew the size of the harvest that was coming in. That’s why I spoke and said ‘Look up to the fields, for they’re white unto harvest.’ Because if your eyes are on the field you won’t resist the trial and the temptation that faces you now. I’ve delivered you from shame. I’ve set you free from darkness. I’ve deposited light within you, and strength. Listen, children, I have great confidence in you, and in Me in you. And I know that I have placed deposits of Myself within you, and I know that I will not fail. The I AM, inside of you will not fail, saith the Lord. So I say unto you, children, rejoice greatly. Let me give you a harvest dance this day. For greatly, greatly shall be your rejoicing. Let your eyes behold the harvest, saith the Lord. For I say unto thee children, great shall be the net and great shall be the harvest. And when it does start coming in, it shall trickle in to begin with, and then it shall be as if the dam were breaking and it shall overflow. And the Lord would say unto thee, rejoice greatly that thou has withstood the fiery trial to be able to catch the sea and the fish as it comes. So let Me give you a harvest dance this day-a rejoicing in the fields, saith the Lord, for in your hand is a sickle. And for those of you that have wild faith, I’ve set you on a combine, saith the Lord, for a harvest sickle in one hand is not enough. So I say unto you this day, My children, rejoice, rejoice. Let your expectation just overwhelm you! Get beside yourself in praise, saith the Lord. In fact, some of you need to sit the ‘old man’ down and let the ‘new man’ rise up and rejoice in Me, saith the Lord, for I have spoken it. And I AM that I AM that I AM that I AM that I AM that I AM – and I shall establish My Word, saith the Lord.

I prayed mostly in tongues for this Word to come to pass in its fullness at Eagles Nest Christian Centre.

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.

Prayed…

  • There’s an outpouring Lord—we thank You Lord—open heavens, there are open heavens. We declare it this morning, there are open heavens—the time and the season has come—there is open heavens. We praise You Lord. Open heavens—a glorious outpouring of the goodness of God. Thank You Father. We lift up grateful hearts this morning and give You thanks. Oh, an unleashing of God’s goodness. God is on the move—an unleashing of His goodness. Thank You Father.
  • Oh, a move of Your Spirit upon our government Lord God. Conviction comes to their hearts this morning as we pray 1 Timothy 2:1-6—for the good of the land and the peace of the people. And that they would come to the saving knowledge of the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord. We pray for wisdom and discernment to be granted to those in authority: the federal, provincial and municipal government; our judges and city council men and women. We ask for wisdom from God and that they will have an ear to hear and a willingness to obey the voice of the Spirit. Father we cover this nation under the blood of Jesus. We cover our borders and we say, evil will not penetrate it, in Jesus’ name. Angelic protection.
  • Father we call forth our harvest out of this city, region, and nation. We call them from the furthest corners of the earth. Come out—let God’s people go, in the name of Jesus. None left behind. None left behind, in Jesus’ name. Busy, busy, busy labourers—busy about the Father’s business—completing assignments. Divine Words. Divine Words piercing the hearts of men shall leave the lips of the labourers. Oh, a great wave! A great wave! A great wave! There’s a wave coming in—the harvest. A great wave—unstoppable! A divine wave moved by the Spirit of God. What must we do to be saved, is their cry. Repent! Repent, is the response of the labourers.
  • Father we hold up Israel this morning. The blood! The blood! The blood! Unity! Unity in the government—unity, unity! Father, wisdom and discernment in these last days—no fear. Great revival! A spiritual revival! An infusion of the Spirit of God in that land that touches the hearts of the people. Wrong mindsets are being broken. Clarity of truth—the Messiah has come.
  • Father we thank You for the release of the land for this House. For the release of the people. For the release of every provision needed. For the release of the finances. A great release. It will be monumental. Oh, it shall be good in our eyes. It shall be great because it shall be a God thing—notable and outstanding—to the glory of God! We thank You Father. Your promises are “yes” and “amen” and we give You thanks.

John 6:44 (TPT) – The only way people come to Me is by the Father who sent Me—He pulls on their hearts to embrace Me. And those who are drawn to Me, I will certainly raise them up in the last day.”

Acts 2:37 (TPT) – When they heard this they were crushed and realized what they had done to Jesus. Deeply moved, they said to Peter and the other apostles, “What do we need to do, brothers?” 38 Peter replied, “Repent and return to God, and each one of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus, the Anointed One, to have your sins removed. Then you may take hold of the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For God’s promise of the Holy Spirit is for you and your families, for those yet to be born and for everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself.”

heard (to be endowed with the faculty of hearing; not deaf; to attend to; to consider what is or has been said; to comprehend and understand)

crushed (KJV says pricked – to pierce through; (fig.) to agitate violently; sting to the quick)

All salvation comes through grace. It is grace that God chose to save the ungodly; it is grace that Christ came to earth to secure the salvation of His treasured possession through His own blood; and it is grace that exchanges a man’s heart of stone for a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 11:19) – by the power of the Holy Spirit. This work of the Holy Spirit in the salvation of men is known as regeneration (spiritual renewal or revival). Before man is able to respond to the gospel message, he must be given ears to hear. Because man is born dead in sin, he must be made alive in order to respond positively to the call to repentance (Ephesians 2:1). Without this work of the Holy Spirit, man would remain condemned and dead in his sins.

Many struggle with the relationship between God’s “drawing” of a person to salvation and the human choice required to believe in Jesus as Lord. The Bible presents both aspects as essential to salvation. However, it is clear that God was the One who initiated the process, provided the way of salvation through Jesus and provided the faith necessary for a person to believe in His name. Salvation is God’s gift provided by His grace. We receive this grace by faith—salvation that only God can provide.

Each given a measure of faith—no one was given more faith than the other. Each person must work/use his or her faith (in Christ) and it will grow as they continue to walk with Him.

Romans 5:8 (TPT) – But Christ provided God’s passionate love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly! Every part of this process is due to God’s grace, though every person must choose to respond and place their faith in Christ.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (TPT) – 8 For it was only through this wonderful grace that we believed in Him. Nothing we did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the gracious gift from God that brought us to Christ! 9 So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving.

We are praying for the harvest—for the conviction of sin, an awakening to the truth, an ear to hear the voice of the Spirit and a yielding of hearts that leads to true repentance (to change their minds and direction of their lives and to turn back to God).

Prayed…

  • The harvest—oh Spirit of the living God, draw them. Draw them, in the name of Jesus. We ask You to draw them to You. We bind that lying spirit, that spirit of deception that would hold and keep men blind, in the name of Jesus. We bind that spirit of darkness, in the name of Jesus. Open eyes! Open ears! Ears once plugged are opened, in Jesus’ name. We bind that spirit of pride—that mountain—be removed, in the name of Jesus. Embracing the truth—they’re embracing the truth. It’s a living truth. Life comes, life comes to them in this Truth. Oh, Father such a move of Your Spirit. Move as only You can move on this harvest Lord God. A time of ripening—there is a great ripening taking place. Ripe for the picking. Oh yes, they’re ripe for the picking. The final stages to the harvest being ripened. The labourers go out, they are fishers of men. Ha! Ha! Overflow, boat-sinking, net-breaking—a harvest of souls. Ha! Ha! Labourers dropping their nets. A trolling—a great in-gathering, in the name of Jesus. Nothing is too difficult. No one is too difficult for God to draw in. Father, You’re the God of the impossible. Father, our hearts cry is for You to save them Lord. Labourers penetrating dark places. Doors opening. Doors that were once chained shut. Angels on assignment. Even as Peter was released by an angel and brought from prison. We declare over this harvest, there is a great release for those that are bound, in the name of Jesus. A great harvest for Canada! A great harvest for the United States! A great harvest out of the European nations! A great harvest out of the Asian nations! A great harvest out of the Muslim nations! A great harvest out of the islands of the seas! We call them forth, in the name of Jesus—release, in Jesus’ name. We thank You Father You are preparing Churches across this nation and the world to receive the harvest. Preparations are being made. We won’t be caught unaware of the time and unaware of the season. But we will be ready when they come, in the name of Jesus. Thank You Lord. We thank You Lord. We thank You Father. Great repentance! They’re being baptized, and we thank You Father their hearts are receptive to receiving the infilling of Your Holy Spirit. We thank You. Thank You Lord.
  • Father God You open the eyes of the blind and Lord, You lift up those who are bowed down in sin. You said the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Father open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness and release from their sins so that they may have a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in You. Open their understanding Father that they might comprehend the Word of God that is brought to them through Your labourers and through the five-fold ministry. Father You are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness towards those that are lost—forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin of all those who repent and turn to You and acknowledge Jesus as Saviour and Lord of their lives And as they turn Father, [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. We thank You that as they freely admit their sins, when Your light uncovers them, You will be faithful to forgive them because of Christ. We thank You this morning for Your faithfulness to save, heal and deliver all those who come to You, in Jesus’ name. (Isaiah 35:5/ 2 Corinthians 3:16/ Exodus 34:6-7/ Acts 26:18/ Psalm 146:8 – (AMPC)/ 1 John 1:9 (TPT)

A prophetic word given by the Lord to Jerry Savelle regarding 2019

2019 will be a year of marvels, wonders, extraordinary manifestations of the greatness of your God.

Ex 34:10
And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.

Job 5:6 MSG
“… After all, he’s famous for great and unexpected acts; there’s no end to his surprises.

We prayed towards this prophetic word for Eagles Nest.

Prayed…

  • Father we stand in agreement with this Word. We declare at Eagles Nest Church it is the year of signs and wonders, and extraordinary miracles of the greatness of our God. It is supernatural.
  • Thank You for creative miracles. It is unprecedented for this house and our lives individually. In Isaiah it says “Here I am and the children whom the Lord has given me, e are for signs and wonders…” That is who we are.
  • Thank You that it is our ‘suddenly’ season and it can’t be stopped. Thank You for releases in Jesus’ name.
  • Just as in Jeremiah it says they will hear all the good You are doing and it will no longer be heard where is your God. It is evident that the Lord is working on our behalf. We give You all the praise.

  • Yes there is a hunger for this move of God. Our expectancy is at an all-time high. You said what You did in Azusa You will do again in approximately 100 years. Well, we are in that time frame. Demonstrations, manifestations and visitations. All Your works testify of You Lord.
  • Notable miracles, unusual acts. We are contending for the glory. This is Your year to act Lord. You are the God of ‘show and tell’. It is fulfillment time.
  • That present situation is about to turn around to the glory of the Lord. Yes Lord we are taking off the limits.
  • Thank You for mighty acts of salvation. Thank You for mighty acts of healing, for creative miracles and deliverances. Thank You for financial releases and for restoration.
  • We are in the time of the mighty acts to the glory of Your name.
  • Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

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.

We Prayed for our Jewish Harvest:

Acts 16:1 Amp
Now Paul traveled to Derbe and also to Lystra. A disciple named Timothy was there, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer [in Christ], however, his father was a Greek.

2Tim1:5
when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.

Deborah received in prayer the words:

MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS: an unfolding, the discovery of something secret or withheld from the knowledge of others, disclosure, full exhibition

MAJOR ADVANCEMENTS: the act of moving forward or proceeding, the state of being advanced, preferment, promotion, in rank of excellence, the act of promoting

Development Takes Time by Lynne Hammond

Dearest Friend and Pray-er,
A few weeks ago, one particular word began to get hold of me in my prayer closet. It came to me while I was praying about the Church and the position she’ll be in when Jesus comes back. As I saw in my spirit how we as believers will become living epistles so full of Jesus that even if people don’t have a Bible they’ll be able to read us and see Him, I noticed I kept hearing this one word.

It was the word DEVELOP.

I knew it was a word from the Lord about this day we’re living in. So even though I was familiar with it, I looked it up in the dictionary. It said that DEVELOP means: to unfold gradually in detail, and gave the example of placing exposed photographic material in chemicals to produce a visible image.

What an old-fashioned example! I thought. Developing photographs? Millennials today don’t even know what that is. They’re used to visible images appearing instantly. They think snap+upload=picture, right now.

Back in the dinosaur age, when I was growing up, there was no such thing as snap and upload. Until the Polaroid Instamatic camera came along (which—amazingly!—produced photographs on the spot, in three minutes), we had to wait anywhere from six days to two weeks to see our pictures. After we filled up an entire roll of film, we had to take it to the drugstore where it was developed by being put through nine different chemical processes.

Each process had to be done in a darkroom with the door shut. Nobody dared opened the door prematurely because that would ruin the pictures. It would expose the film to light before the development process was complete, and the images on the film would be distorted or even destroyed.

That day as I thought about the word develop, I realized that for us as believers to get where we’re headed before Jesus returns, we need to go through much the same process! For the image of Christ that’s been imprinted on our spirit to be fully revealed in us, we have to shut the door on the world and spend time in a kind of darkroom… only our darkroom is called the Secret Place of the Most High!

What is the secret place of the Most High?

It’s our place of intimate fellowship with the Lord. It’s the place where we spend time just being with Him. The place in His presence where we hear from Him and things that were hazy become clear, uncertainty becomes certainty, and closed places open. Where the image of Jesus is projected in us by His Spirit and, as 2 Corinthians 3:18 says:

We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory. (NKJV)

Notice, according to that verse, being transformed into Jesus’ image isn’t something that happens in an instant. We aren’t transformed all at once the moment we get born again or baptized in the Holy Spirit. Although those things are important, for the image of Jesus to become visible in us, we must keep beholding Him and going from glory to glory. We must continually press into Him so that His likeness can develop in us.

BEING CALLED AND GIFTED ISN’T ENOUGH

Without going through that development process, no Christian anywhere can fulfill their God-ordained calling. Without spending time with Him in the secret place, we won’t ever become His living epistles, “known and read by all men” (2 Corinthians 3:2 NKJV).

Even in this Internet/social-media age, in the realm of the spirit there’s no such thing as snap+upload=divine destiny. It simply doesn’t exist!

If you need proof, just study the earthly life of Jesus. He was divinity incarnate, yet to fulfill His destiny, even He had to get off by Himself to spend time in God’s presence. He had to spend 40 days by Himself out in the wilderness, fasting and praying, before He even preached one sermon. He had to get up early in the morning during his three years of ministry and go off by Himself, “a great while before day… into a solitary place” to pray (Mark 1:35). He had to practice personally, in other words, what He taught His disciples:

Go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret. (Matthew 6:6 Amp.)

These days, a lot of Christians don’t seem to want to do that. They don’t want to spend any time alone with God, in the wilderness so to speak, fasting and praying. They just want to jump right into whatever it is they think they’re gifted to do. “I don’t need to grow in the Lord first,” they say. “I’ll just grow as I go along.”

I recently heard about one young believer who actually left his church because he wasn’t being promoted fast enough. As the pastor explained it, he said nobody had “discovered his gift.”

That person had it all wrong! The Church isn’t supposed to “discover gifts.” That’s what Hollywood does. It finds gifted people and puts them in the spotlight, often to their destruction. God draws people to Himself and develops them into the image of Jesus. He waits to put them in the spotlight until the light that’s in them is greater than the light that’s on them.

“Yes,” somebody might say, “but God does need more gifted people in the Church right now.”
No, He doesn’t. Although God loves gifted people, what He needs is anointed people. He needs people who are clothed with His own burden- removing, yoke-destroying power (Luke 4:18). He needs people who keep coming to Him until His power gets in them and on them. People who continually behold Him and incline their ear to Him until they know the voice of the Good Shepherd not just through somebody else but for themselves.

God has always needed people like that. It’s why all through the Bible, He said to us in various ways, “Come to Me!” It’s why, before He sends us out to do His work, He always draws us to Himself, away from the hubbub of the world, and says as He did in Isaiah 26:20, “Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself…”

THE COMINGS AND GOINGS OF SCRIPTURE

You can see this all through the Bible. God always called even His most gifted leaders first and foremost to Himself. Take John the Baptist, for example.

According to Jesus, he was the greatest prophet who ever lived. When he was just eight days old his father Zechariah prophesied over him and said: “You little one, shall be called a prophet of the Most High; for you shall go on before the face of the Lord to make ready His ways, to bring and give the knowledge of salvation to His people in the forgiveness and remission of their sins.” (Luke 1:76–77 Amp.)

Talk about divinely destined! John was called and anointed before he was ever born to prepare the way for the Messiah. But even so, to fulfill his mission, he needed the anointing that comes from spending time with God. There was no way even he could snap+upload=destiny. That would not work! God had to develop him, so He sent him first out into the desert to fellowship with Him. “And [there] the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (v. 80).

In the Old Testament, we see the same pattern. Moses, for instance, before he led the Israelites out of Egypt, had to spend 40 years in Midian, living in the desert. He had to go through a process of development that prepared him to fulfill the call of God.

So did David. He first received his calling as a young teenager when God sent Samuel to go anoint one of the sons of Jesse to be Israel’s king. You remember the story. When Samuel arrived at Jesse’s house, David wasn’t even called in from the field. His family members (who had rejected him because his great grandmother Ruth was a Moabite) had assumed he wouldn’t qualify.

After meeting all of Jesse’s other sons, however, Samuel realized the Lord hadn’t chosen any of them and asked Jesse if there were any others.

And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said,

Arise, anoint him: for this is he. Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah. (1 Samuel 16: 11–13 KJV)

What did David do after Samuel left?

He went back out into the fields and tended his father’s sheep! Even though he’d been anointed by the Spirit of the Lord, he didn’t just step into his destiny. He didn’t just snap+upload=#newkingofIsrael.

No, he spent the next 20 years or so out in the pasture, singing and worshiping God. He wasn’t out there trying to get a Grammy or win a Dove Award. He was out there developing a relationship with the real Dove, developing in character, in faithfulness, and in not being offended. He was in the Secret Place, letting the Most High take him through the processes that would enable him to become who he already was—Israel’s king.

Even the apostle Paul had to go through that kind of developing process, and he not only lived under the New Covenant, he experienced the most miraculous conversion in the entire Bible! On the road to Damascus, he had such a dramatic and glorious encounter with Jesus that he was knocked to the ground and left blind for three days. His whole life changed, and right then and there, Jesus revealed to him his apostolic destiny.

You’d think all that would have been enough to launch Paul immediately into ministry. You’d think after having such supernatural experiences, he could have gone ahead full steam into the plan of God and gotten busy preaching the Gospel and writing the New Testament epistles. But that’s not what he did!

Instead, for the next 12 to 15 years, Paul hid himself away. He spent time off by himself receiving revelation from God out in the desert region of Arabia. It was during his time in Arabia that Paul received his anointing to minister. It was there God prepared him to go out and meet the world.

PAUL’S ONE LIFELONG PURPOSE AND PRESS

Martin Luther once said Paul’s words are so powerful they’re like “hands that grip the heart.” And still today, after all these years, Paul’s words are still gripping hearts.

Why? Because they carry the divine power that came on him during the time he spent in the Secret Place, pressing into God.

Paul didn’t stop spending time in that place after he left Arabia either. All throughout his life and ministry, he kept pressing into it. He made it his central goal and primary objective to keep beholding Jesus and becoming more like Him. As he wrote in Philippians 3:10:

[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed…into His likeness… (Amp.)

Given Paul’s great apostolic calling, his purpose in life could have been to heal the sick and work miracles, signs, and wonders in the name of Jesus. He could have made preaching to the nations and soul winning his objective. But he knew that he could only give God out to others to the degree he knew God himself. He could only project the image of Christ to the world to the degree that image was formed in him.

“Not that I have now attained [this ideal],” he wrote, “or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me” (Philippians 3:12 Amp.).

Certainly, if Paul, as gifted and anointed as he was, had to keep pressing deeper into Jesus, we as believers do today! Certainly, if at the end of his earthly life he hadn’t yet fully developed into the Lord’s image, all of us still have a way to go.

None of us have gotten to a place where we can stop and stagnate. None of us can sit back and say, “I made it. I’ve read the Bible. I’ve spent some time in prayer. Now I know it all. I’m ready for snap+upload=my destiny.”

No, if we want to become all God has called us to be, we must keep pressing and progressing in our relationship with Jesus. If we want to fulfill our destiny, even in this high-tech age, we must spend time with the Lord so that His image can develop in us.

“But Lynne,” you might say, “I’m too busy. I don’t have time.”

Nobody these days has any time! If you’re going to spend time with Jesus, you have to make time for Him. You have to decide that fellowshipping with Him in the secret place is the most important thing you can do and put it first place in your life and schedule.

My dear praying friend, God has things in mind for you that you don’t even know about yet! He has a place in His great divine plan for this end-time hour that only you can fill. Don’t miss out on one detail of it. Make up your mind right now that you’re going to give God all the time He needs to reveal it to you.

Determine afresh every day to come up higher into that place before His throne, where He can project His image onto you and where things that have been hazy become clear, and get to know Him more intimately every day. “

We prayed for Pastor Ric and Deborah, our leadership, and the ENCC congregation.

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.

The word over Eagles Nest – “Will be a distinguished people”

Definition of Distinguished: made conspicuous; by excellence; noted; eminent; famous; marked

Goshen – a land or place of comfort and plenty:

Exodus 8:22-24 (NKJV) – 22 “And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, in which My people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there, in order that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the land. 23 I will make a difference between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be”. 24 And the Lord did so…..

Exodus 9:4-6 (NKJV) – 4 And the Lord will make a difference between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt. So nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel. 5 Then the Lord appointed a set time, saying, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.” 6 So the Lord did this thing on the next day, and all the livestock of Egypt died; but of the livestock of the children of Israel, not one died.

We are praying for Eagles Nest and our upcoming move.

Prayed…

  • Father we thank You for Your Word. We thank You for the truth of Your Word. Your Word is “yes” and “amen”. We pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-6.
  • Father we pray for our government that they will come to the saving knowledge that Jesus is Lord. All works of darkness that would influence them, Father, we bind in the name of Jesus. Father we ask You to move upon our government, in every office of this land. Awakening them to righteousness—Father awaken them to righteousness. An awakening—an awakening in this nation; an awakening to God—an awakening like never before. Father, remind Your people placed in governmental offices that they’re there for such a time as this. No compromise! No more compromising! No more fear of men—obedience to what God is telling you to do—come out from amongst them. Come out from amongst them and be ye separated—bring the Word. Bring the Word! It’s the Word that will save. Be that testimony. Be that witness, in the name of Jesus.
  • Father a move of Your Spirit across this nation of Canada. A move of Your Spirit across the United States; a move of Your Spirit across Israel; and a move across the nations of the earth. A mighty move of Your Spirit—we ask for it, in Jesus’ name. We declare, God’s plans shall be established in the nations of the earth. Father You raise up kings and You take them down.
  • Have Your way, Father, have Your way in this nation. Have Your way in these upcoming federal elections, Father. Shiftings! Shiftings! Things are being shifted. There is a lining up for the fulfillment of God’s plans for this nation.
  • Father a great harvesting of souls in this nation. Father we just call them forth, in the name of Jesus. Even those that seem to be dead, the Spirit of God is breathing life this morning. An awakening! An awakening to God. Oh, they come from the highways and the byways. A harvesting from the prisons and the mental institutions. Ha! Ha! Yes! Even hardened criminals are coming to the truth—the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Radical conversions, in the name of Jesus.

[Gal. 4:27] Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes, For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Dr. Barclay Prophecy -May 13, 2013

Ric, Deborah, come up here. Father, I thank You. I feel impressed to lay my hands upon you. (tongues)
I placed you here because I knew you wouldn’t compromise. I called you to do this thing because I knew you wouldn’t quit on Me. I’ve had others – they walk away from me, they quit, they’re cowards. They turned soft. You have stood strong, my son and my daughter. And I tell, the day ahead is larger than what you have today. You’re going to… the Lord said, I’m taking out your tent stakes, and I’m widening your territory, both in preaching and in buildings, and facilities, and in congregation and the Lord said, you get ready, good shepherd, because you have the capability – this is the Lord speaking – you have the capability of Pastoring into the thousands. So, I’m going to bring you as many people that will obey Me. Do not feel sad shepherd boy, if they come from other churches, because I’m even doing that work today to resurrect My people and get them back under the living Word of God. (tongues)

And I say over you – come and pray with me Vickie – we just pray over you, I pray church growth, I see this church growing. I see people coming here like never before. They’re going to hear of you. Some already have. They’re going to hear of you and they’re going to come and say, teach us the Bible. Show us the way of God.

Now this verse comes to me…about the mountain of the Lord’s house will be exalted above all the other mountains and hills. And it says, and many will come to Him. I claim many for you. I claim many. We don’t have a long time before the Lord comes, You have a lot of work to do, Rev. And you’re a father like one now. God’s going to bring many to you, you watch, for you to minister to them. And don’t be shocked that younger preachers are going to come and say, teach me and help me and show me. But it says, glad when they said unto me let’s go to the mountain of the Lord’s house where He will teach us of His ways and the Word of the Lord will go out of that place. That’s what’s happening here, and that’s what’s going to keep happening here.

We prayed towards the fulfillment of this prophecy.

Prayed…

  • Father we thank You that we are in agreement with the prophetic Word for this church. We declare it is ‘keva moed’, the set time has come. Thank You that the purpose of God is in motion and will come to pass. We call the people that are called to this church to hear and obey what the Spirit is saying to them. We call them loosed from the north, south, east and west in this nation. They are coming to be equipped.
  • Thank You for the building and land released in Jesus’ name. Thank You that Your favour surrounds us as a shield. Thank You that there is provision for the vision. With God all things are possible. We are in our birthing season.
  • Thank You for the marriage to the other church Lord. We plead the blood of Jesus over the purpose of this church.
  • In the name of Jesus Christ we speak to those mountains of hindrance and we say be removed! Thank You that Eagles Nest church is known for sound doctrine, it is known for signs and wonders, and its faithfulness to You Lord. Thank You that you are equipping us with everything to do Your will.
  • Thank You for the supernatural release. We declare the deeds of the land are in our hands. Everything is changing and it is glorious. You are doing exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all we ask or even think.
  • To God be the glory. Hallelujah. Thank you Lord, thank You Lord.
  • Praise the Lord.

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

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.

Rev 3:18-22
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

No one else “has the goods” – the TRUE RICHES.

Excerpt from Prayer Notes by Lynne Hammond, Fall 2018

“Dearest Friend and Pray-er,

A few weeks ago, one particular word began to get hold of me in my prayer closet. It came to me while I was praying about the Church and the position she’ll be in when Jesus comes back. As I saw in my spirit how we as believers will become living epistles so full of Jesus that even if people don’t have a Bible they’ll be able to read us and see Him, I noticed I kept hearing this one word.

It was the word DEVELOP.

I knew it was a word from the Lord about this day we’re living in. So even though I was familiar with it, I looked it up in the dictionary. It said that DEVELOP means: to unfold gradually in detail and gave the example of placing exposed photographic material in chemicals to produce a visible image.

What an old-fashioned example! I thought. Developing photographs? Millennials today don’t even know what that is. They’re used to visible images appearing instantly. They think snap+upload=picture, right now.

Back in the dinosaur age, when I was growing up, there was no such thing as snap and upload. Until the Polaroid Instamatic camera came along (which—amazingly!—produced photographs on the spot, in three minutes), we had to wait anywhere from six days to two weeks to see our pictures. After we filled up an entire roll of film, we had to take it to the drugstore where it was developed by being put through nine different chemical processes.

Each process had to be done in a darkroom with the door shut. Nobody dared open the door prematurely because that would ruin the pictures. It would expose the film to light before the development process was complete, and the images on the film would be distorted or even destroyed.

That day as I thought about the word develop, I realized that for us as believers to get where we’re headed before Jesus returns, we need to go through much the same process! For the image of Christ that’s been imprinted on our spirit to be fully revealed in us, we have to shut the door on the world and spend time in a kind of darkroom… only our darkroom is called the Secret Place of the Most High!

What is the secret place of the Most High?

It’s our place of intimate fellowship with the Lord. It’s the place where we spend time just being with Him. The place in His presence where we hear from Him and things that were hazy become clear, uncertainty becomes certainty, and closed places open. Where the image of Jesus is projected in us by His Spirit and, as 2 Corinthians 3:18 says: We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory. (NKJV)

Notice, according to that verse, being transformed into Jesus’ image isn’t something that happens in an instant. We aren’t transformed all at once the moment we get born again or baptized in the Holy Spirit. Although those things are important, for the image of Jesus to become visible in us, we must keep beholding Him and going from glory to glory. We must continually press into Him so that His likeness can develop in us…”

We are praying for Pastor Ric and Deborah and Eagles Nest Church… for us to allow His development process in us to prepare us for His perfect timing of completion. As we close the door and spend time with Him in the secret place … “hazy becomes clear, uncertainty becomes certainty, closed places open”.

  • IT IS OUR SEASON OF INCREASE!!!
  • The thief’s been found, and EVERYTHING stolen from all of us individually and corporately is about to be returned 7 FOLD!!
