Zephaniah 3:17 New Life Version
The Lord your God is with you, a Powerful One Who wins the battle. He will have much joy over you. With His love He will give you new life. He will have joy over you with loud singing.
Today my heart is overwhelmed by the glory of God and His power. The Lord has been silent among us for a season, perhaps because the lack of people crying out to Him.
Here’s about what is going to happen! The Lord has heard your prayers and He’s about to cry out. He has been silent, but He is about to respond.
Isaiah 42:14-16 New Life Version
God Promises to Help His People
14 “I have been quiet for a long time. I have been quiet and have held Myself back. Now I will cry out like a woman giving birth. I will breathe hard and fast.
15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills, and dry up all their plants. I will make the rivers into islands, and dry up the pools.
16 I will lead the blind by a way that they do not know. I will lead them in paths they do not know. I will turn darkness into light in front of them. And I will make the bad places smooth. These are the things I will do and I will not leave them.”
I had a dream! I saw an angel standing in the pulpit and he was guarding it. In my dream, I thought his name was Andrew. Andrew the angel, was fierce and serious about the Word and was guarding the platform of the Lord Jesus! He was silent but his presence was powerful! But as the people prayed, worshipped and cried out to the Lord, the manifestation of the Lord Jesus began to flood the sanctuary. The Lord said to me, “without effort people will be set free, saved, and delivered!”
So many times we have begged people to come to the altar and they would not come. We have preached our hearts out and sang until we had no more voice and still people would sit back! But something is about to shift.
SOMETHING HAS TO BREAK!
Andrew in the Greek means: Manly, the mighty one, the conqueror! Mighty Warrior!
Isaiah 62:10-12 New Life Version
10 Go through, go through the gates. Open the way for the people. Build up, build up the road. Take away the stones, and raise the flag over the people.
11 See, the Lord has made it known to the end of the earth: Say to the people of Zion, “Look, the One Who saves you is coming! See, He is bringing His reward that He will give.”
12 And they will call them “The holy people, the people who have been saved and set free by the Lord.” And you will be called “A city looked for, a city that God has not forgotten.”
This is what the Lord is about to do! The Lord is bringing His reward with him.
Let me tell you, God is faithful and what He said He would do, He will do it! He will perform it! Tho it tarries, wait for it!
Habakkuk 2:2-3 New Life Version
The Lord’s Answer to Habakkuk
2 Then the Lord answered me and said, “Write down the special dream on one so that one may read it in a hurry.
3 For it is not yet time for it to come true. The time is coming in a hurry, and it will come true. If you think it is slow in coming, wait for it. For it will happen for sure, and it will not wait.
4 As for the proud one, his soul is not right in him. But the one who is right and good will live by his faith.
GET READY FOR THE SUPERNATURAL
There are some things we can do in the natural! But when it’s beyond you, beyond the natural, then it’s time to cry out to God, worship Him, make room for Him, seek Him, and get ready for the super natural. The more we seek Him, worship Him, pray to Him, the more you will see Him and His manifestations! When He shows up, He will perform the supernatural things you can’t do, those things that are beyond YOU!
In my dream, I saw people coming to the altar. I felt the Spirit draw me with such power that I could barely stand up. My mother-in-law helped me to the altar and she spoke a word over me. She said, “I’m about to lay my hands on your stomach and when I do you feel the power of God come upon you, and the gift of faith, healing and miracles will be given to you and you will preach, sing, and worship and without effort, people will be saved and delivered from demons, and strongholds. People will be healed and set free from infirmity.”
Then she laid her hands on my stomach and the power of God hit me and I fell to the ground. I saw Andrew the Angel in the pulpit and when I looked up, no one was standing for everyone felt the manifested presence of God to the point they were all on their knees!
Then I woke up. I asked God for the interpretation and here it is!
What do we need to do the Lord? You said for us to do what we can then you will do what you will do.
Then this scripture came to me: Psalm 37:5-10
- Give your way over to the Lord
- Trust Him
- Rest in the Lord
- Wait for Him
- Do not trouble yourself by the actions of other people
- Stop being angry
- Turn away from fighting
Then HE WILL DO IT! The promise is for an appointed time! The time is close!
The Lord is calling for you to change some things. Change your mind about how you are viewing the world right now. You need to change the way you do church. You need to change …….that is what it means to REPENT….to change your mind!
Get Ready For the SuperNatural! Get ready for God to do what YOU CAN’T!
In Jesus Name!
Acts 3:19-21 New Living Translation
19 Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.
20 Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and he will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah.
21 For he must remain in heaven until the time for the final restoration of all things, as God promised long ago through his holy prophets.
