ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT TO THE USA

ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT TO THE USA BY BISHOP DR. JACKIE L. GREEN NOVEMBER 6, 2016 Key text: Daniel 10:11-14 (Voice Bible Version) • Messenger: 11 Daniel, you are highly regarded by God. I have been sent to help you understand the destiny of your people. Stand up and listen carefully to what I have to tell you. • As he spoke, I slowly rose to my feet, though I was still shaking. • Messenger: 12 Do not be afraid, Daniel. From the very first day that you began to pursue understanding and humble yourself before your God, your words have been heard. I have been sent in response to what you’ve said. 13 I would have been here sooner; however, for the past 21 days the spirit prince of Persia opposed me and prevented my coming to you. Then Michael, one of the chief princes of heaven, came to my aid because I alone was busy dealing with the kings of Persia. 14 I have come to help you understand what will happen to your people in the last days,[a] for this vision is about a time yet to come. HOW MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY BELIEVE IN THE MINISTRY OF ANGELS? We must realize that there are holy angels and evil angels both on assignments to the USA. I remember when my younger son, Joshua, was riding in a van with us, and we were on the freeway in Los Angeles, CA. A car swerved into our lane and it looked like a huge pile up would take place. But there was an intervention that protected us. My young son (about age nine) said, “Mom, did you see that? It was a huge angel that came between the cars? We were stunned at what he had seen, but we surely believed him. Angels are in the midst of God’s people and on assignment in our every day lives. In this message the Lord reminds us, as we are on the eve of the 2016 USA Election, to remember that THERE IS A SPIRITUAL COMBAT WAR GOING ON OVER THE USA BY ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT. WE MUST NOT GET DISTRACTED WITH ALL THE CHAOS AND CONFUSION IN THE ATMOSPHERE. WE MUST DISCERN THE INTENSE BATTLE OVER THE DESTINY OF THIS NATION! Let’s first define what an angel is: Angel means… (aggelos) of the New Testament, means "messenger". They are created spiritual beings by God. They can appear in human body form. Angels have rank and order. There are holy angels and unholy angels. Angels are referred to at least 108 times in the Old Testament and 165 times in the New Testament. The holy angels carry out the purpose of the One they serve. The fallen angels are messengers of Satan whom they have chosen to serve. Just as there are ranks in the police department, there are ranks in the angelic realm. Angels have assignments and they have rankings. Angels do not move by our command. Police do not move by our command. They only respond to the order of the Police Chief or commanders over them. We cannot command angels. Angels are “Word activated.” Angels only respond to the commands of Jesus Christ. Demonic angels respond to the commands of Satan. HOLY ANGEL HIERARCHY Jesus Christ, the Head of Heaven’s Armies Arch Angels (Gabriel and Michael) Seraphims/Cherabims Principalities/Powers Satan-Fallen Angel Evil Angels In our text today in Daniel, we meet both Arch Angels: Gabriel- The Word/Messenger Angel Gabriel is mentioned in the Old and New Testaments. He’s known for bearing good news of Jesus’ coming birth Gabriel stands in the presence of God. Gabriel looks like a man The name Gabriel means “man of God” or “strength of God.” Gabriel’s presence stuns people. When Daniel meets Gabriel, he is frightened and falls on his face. When Gabriel greets Zacharias, his first words are, “Do not be afraid.” Mary’s greeting is more celebratory, but Gabriel still follows up by telling her not to fear. Gabriel anticipates Jesus. Gabriel relays a prophecy concerning “Messiah the Prince” to Daniel. Michael, the Warrior Angel Michael as one of the leading angels is considered "Prince" of the heavenly hosts, and appears three times in the Book of Daniel (10:13, 10:21, and 12:1). He is the only one in the Bible referred to as an Archangel (Jude 1:9), and serves a major role in Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation. Lucifer, the Fallen Angel who Once led WORSHIP in Heaven Lucifer was created perfect in all hiLucifer s ways, but iniquity was found in him. It was not put there by God. Lucifer created it. ( this is found in Ezekiel 28:15 ) Like man, the angels were created perfect, and with a free will. Satan was lifted up because of his beauty, he corrupted the wisdom by reason of his brightness (This is in Ezekiel 28:17) We must understand the role of these three high ranking angels. Michael (meaning "who is like God?") is given the title archangel (Jd.9), and is seen as Israel's protector (Dan.10:11,21). He disputed with Satan over Moses' body and, with his angels, engages Satan and his angels midway through the Tribulation in a great "star wars", forcing Satan out of the heavens (Rev.12:7-12). WAR ARCH ANGEL B. Gabriel (meaning "the mighty one") is always seen in the Bible as a messenger or revealer of God's purposes, as to Daniel (Dan.8:15-27; cp. 9:20-27) and to Zacharias and to the virgin Mary (Lk.1:26-3). WORD OR MESSENGER ANGEL C. Lucifer- --Lucifer, son of the morning (pre-fall title), known as: (WORSHIP ANGEL BEFORE THE FALL) Eight KEY POINTS Point I- There are unseen forces and obstacles over our nation. Like Daniel…we must keep praying and fasting and keep the faith in God, for there are unseen forces, perhaps by a foreign influence. We pray for the removal of the evils in the USA and other nations, yet these may be so interlocked with the customs of a country, with the interests of men, and with the laws, that they cannot be at once eradicated except by miracle or angelic intervention and the answer to the prayer seems to be long delayed. Point 2- We must not forget God’s unseen army/Patrol working on our behalf in this nation. The presence of these spiritual beings, especially in our churches, for it changes the way we worship God, and keeps us from being depressed and overwhelmed about world events and chaos in the USA. • ANGELS PATROL THE EARTH. The "real" God-squad. "And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, ‘These are those whom the Lord has sent to patrol the earth’. So they answered the angel of the Lord who was standing among the myrtle trees, and said, ‘We have patrolled the earth, and behold, all the earth is peaceful and quiet." (Zechariah 1:10,11) ​ Point 3- The Daniel’s of our day must arise, pray and fast and obey the Word of the Lord. AS BELIEVERS WE ALL MUST HAVE A DANIEL WINDOW. IS YOUR WINDOW OPEN TO PRAYER AND THE VOICE OF THE LORD, OR IS YOUR WINDOW FULL OF NEGATIVITY, ANXIETY AND WORRY. The Lord says “Create an atmosphere for angelic activity and they will come and appear. Expect them and prepare and welcome them. Expect and prepare for angelic visitation, angelic intervention, angelic messengers, and angelic territorial transactions to take place because of your intercession, because of your worship, because of your fasting, because of your giving, because of the dust you are stirring up in the spirit realm, because of the intensity of the gates of hell coming against thee, because of the destiny of nations, cities, regions and churches and lives I have called you to affect. Point 4- Don’t be moved by Demonic Opposition. Expect it. The Work of Evil Angels: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 Satan, the god of this world knows how to blind our hearts and put a cloud over our understanding and blind us to the truth. Evil angels work constantly to assault our faith, to blur the evidence of things not seen. Evil angels want to take our spiritual eyes and weaken our hope. They strive to dampen and make LOVE GROW COLD! Evil angels are on assignment to destroy relationships by every possible means; they excite private and public suspicions, animosities, resentment, quarrels and destroy the peace in marriages, families and nations. They banish unity in the earth. Evil angels make our lives miserable if we let them. Evil angels work to conquer and divide governments and plant seeds of UNREST IN OUR NATION. THEY PLANT SEEDS OF DISHONOR OF GOD AND REBELLION TO AUTHORITY. WE SEED THE FRUIT OF THEIR EVIL IN THIS 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION MORE THAN EVER! The key work of evil angels is found in John 10:10… they are sent to KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY. Evil angels are on assignment to hinder the work of the Kingdom of God and usher in the Kingdom of darkness on every level. They are the masters of chaos, hatred and murder. Evil angels are skilled in planting evil thoughts in the minds of men. They awaken evil passions that are directly opposite of the fruit of the Spirit. They strive to instill unbelief, atheism, ill will, bitterness, hatred, malice, envy, fear, panic, anxiety, worry and depression. They are the ones that plant seeds of infidelity and sexual disorder and mental illness in our society. The work of evil spirits and evil angels is seen the many diseases that many times will not respond to antibiotics. There is an increase of lunacy and mental illness and demonized people. Evil spirits are behind the rise of the occult, witchcraft, sorcery, divination, racism, corruption and national division in the USA. Evil spirits are behind church division and the church being weakened with sexual sin and complacency. The work of evil spirits and evil angels in the nations of the world is to fill nations with unrest, violence, hatred, greed, attacks on women, children, the poor and even on the earth of natural resources. They orchestrate the shedding of innocent blood, war and rumors of war, and evil spirits orchestrate demonic world leaders. Point 5- There are Defenders (holy angelic hosts) assigned to the USA…to defend and protect us. Remember angels are not called to do what we can do ourselves. They however, can go where we cannot go. GOD COULD SEND ON ANGEL TO WHIP ISIS, IF THEY WON’T REPENT. ONE ANGEL ANNIHILATED 185,000 Assyrians… a whole city even! I Kings 19:35 • ANGELS ARE SO STRONG THAT IT TOOK ONLY ONE TO KILL 185,000 ASSYRIANS...AND NOW THEY ARE FIGHTING ON YOUR TEAM. “Then it happened that night that the angel of the Lord went out, and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men rose early in the morning, behold, all of them were dead.” Holy angels respond to the “Gate Churches in the land.” A gate church is a place where our prayers and intercession build a ladder from earth to heaven and cause holy angels to enter and exist through that gateway in a region or nation. A gate church is a church that is heavy with the prayer mantle like Daniel, fasting and praying and worshipping. The Gate church is a church filled with fresh revelation from the Lord. Evil spirits hate holy and heavenly revelation. The gate church must pray that the eyes of their understanding be enlightened so they can see what the Lord is doing. Point 6- The USA has a destiny to fulfill. The fight in the heavens is over our Destiny. We have been given global influence, power, wealth and grace from the Lord. • The Lord says: Learn to call forth angelic assistance and expect them to be working on your behalf in the now and in the days to come. For as you fast and pray even in the upcoming days, there shall be a fresh energy, synergy, released over you and the swords shall be clashing in the Spirit realm as you pray for your regions and this nation to be ruled by MY Kingdom. • You are going into “Kingdom Warfare” training in the next 10-20 years, so do not concern yourself with low rate “denominational warfare” which has gone on since the beginning of time to distract from the true moves of God. • For in the next ten to twenty years or so you shall be prepared for nations and the principalities that will be overthrown by thy faithfulness to Kingdom Strategies. Most of my Body is dormant in this area of the Spirit of angelic advancement and many of them fear the supernatural and are only in superficial battle or no battle at all. Be careful then of your words, for the angels are on call 24-7 and move at My Word. The Lord says: “For Angels do not come for religion, bake sales, church quarrels, annual days, concerts and musicals, traditions of men, your opinion or philosophies. Angels do not come for fleshly motives, weak preaching and weak teaching, prayer less and dry places, flattery and self glory, but they only come for God’s Glory and Purposes in the earth and heaven. They only come for The Word of the Lord.” Point 7- JESUS CHRIST HAS PAID THE PRICE TO RULE OVER THE USA. HE IS ABOVE ALL AND NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US FROM HIS LOVE! "For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor thing present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38,39) Jesus Christ our Lord was, is, and forever will be surrounded by His Holy Angels. Even while on earth, Angels informed Mary and Joseph, and the shepherds of Christ’s birth. Angels ministered to Christ after His temptation. An angel strengthened Him in the Garden of Gethsemane. Angels were positioned to deliver Him from earthly enemies. An angel rolled he stone from the empty tomb and announced to the women, He is not here, He has risen. Angels ascended with Into Heaven and will come with Him in His Second Coming as a great army. If JESUS NEEDED ANGELS, WHAT ABOUT US! POINT 8- WATCH OUT… GOD’S ANGELS ARE IN THE MIDST OF YOU EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT AWARE. “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:2 MY ENCOUNTER WITH AN ANGEL IN l983: Story of the Church Bus While taking a church bus trip with our congregation from Redlands, CA to Phoenix, AZ, we had a full bus load on the old church bus “The Red Goose” we called it. We were on our way, some 30 of us, and the bus broke down in the desert of Indio, CA at night. There we sat, trying to figure out how to get back to Redlands, and drive our cars to Phoenix. There we sat praying, and low and behold, an empty bus pulled us along side of us. It was an old bus with curtains inside and out of the bus came a man with bird like hat and strange clothing. We thought, who is this? He was kind but saw us stranded. He offered to give all 30 of us a ride back to Redlands. Well, this must be God we thought, at lam in the morning, an empty bus was sitting there for us. So we got on the bus and he drove us back to the Church. He refused to take any money. He went on his way and we never saw him again. He must have been an angel for sure. No one dressed like that. He must have grabbed some quick clothes from heaven and came to help us. God is able to send angels driving a bus to rescue us. Wow… what an experience. We made it safely to Phoenix, and wondered who was this kind and strangely dressed man. He must have been an angel of the Lord. Angels can do many things, even drive a bus. • Remember: Activate the angels of the Lord in your lives, church, city and nation: • Angels are not to be worshipped OR PRAYED TO. • Angels are “WORD activated.” • Angels will not do for us, what we can do for ourselves. • We must not forget angels are on assignments daily in our lives and over our nation. • Repent for rejecting angelic work among us and being full of fear and unbelief. The Lord says to us: • This is the next dimension. It is territorial deliverance. It is neighborhood deliverance. I will teach you about regional deliverance. I will open up to you revelation on city deliverance. I will teach you and open up deliverance for whole families. For I have sought for a people who will fast and pray and line up in the Spirit and believe My Whole Word, like Daniel, and who will prepare generations and war for the souls of unborn generations. Do not be afraid of what I am telling you today. For the powers of darkness will fight you, but they will not PREVAIL!!!!!!! • Yea, be in position, for I am about to teach you and train you so you can train others in deliverance assisted by angels. I am about to release fresh terminology and words unfamiliar to thee as you cast out devils and as you come against regional principalities. So be prepared to unlearn religious fables and religious clichés, and hear the Spirit of the Lord through a fresh gateway of revelation. • So rejoice, for you shall begin to break through in hard places now because of the angelic help and the angelic strength that I am making accessible to thee, says the Spirit of the Living God. • For the gates of Hell will not prevail because the angels of the Lord have their boots on the ground in the USA!”

What is Fearless Preaching? There is a famine of Fearless Preaching in America: It is the Only Kind of Preaching that will bring Righteous Reform to our Nation! © July 23, 2016 by Bishop Dr. Jackie L. Green, D. Min. JGM-Enternational Prayer Life Institute “These that have turned the world upside down are come here also;” Acts 17:6b Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. KJV Boldness Defined: NT:3954 parrhesia (par-rhay-see'-ah); from NT:3956 and a derivative of NT:4483; all out-spokenness, i.e. frankness, bluntness, publicity; by implication, assurance: KJV - bold (X -ly, -ness, -ness of speech), confidence, freely, openly, plainly (-ness). (Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003, 2006 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.) 1. Fearless preaching is first and foremost preaching in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, NO MATTER WHO DOESN’T LIKE IT. IT IS PRAYING IN THE NAME OF JESUS PUBLICALLY AND DECLARING YOU ARE NOT ASHAMED OF THE NAME! FEARLESS PREACHING IS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT! 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable [a]miracle hath been wrought through them, is manifest to all that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. 17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. 18 And they called them, and charged them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. Acts 4:15-18 2. FEARLESS PREACHING OBEYS GOD RATHER THAN MAN. You can’t preach what you like or want. You can only preach what God tells you to preach according to His Holy Word, not what men want to hear. Acts 4:29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, KJV 3. FEARLESS PREACHING MEANS PREACHING WHAT OTHERS FEAR TO PREACH OR SAY. Fearless preaching makes people uncomfortable and shakes the foundations of hell. Hell cannot prevail where there is fearless preaching. 4. FEARLESS PREACHING IS REVELATORY PREACHING. Preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, not your gospel or a worldly gospel. It reveals the Kingdom of God’s governmental order and reveals God’s eternal plan for mankind of love but also His judgement. Fearless preaching is not afraid to preach about God’s judgement! Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. KJV 5. Fearless preaching tackles unpopular subjects such as: sin, hell, death, eternal life, the occult, witchcraft, murder and violence, shedding innocent blood, repentance, your conscience, perversion, lawlessness, injustice, unjust scales, hidden sins, corruption in high places, crimes against humanity, corrupt government, same sex unions, homosexuality, adultery, porn, addictions, divorce, Satanism, domestic violence in the church, false prophets, cults, sexual sin, worldliness and the love of money to name a few. 2 Timothy 4:2-4--Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 6. Fearless preaching exposes deception, seducing spirits, lies, false religions, and anyone or anything that is leading society or the church astray. 7. God will back up fearless preaching with the power of God and signs following. 1 Cor 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 1 Cor 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. KJV 8. Fearless preaching is not fearing what man can do to you, whether it be family, government, denominations, churches or principalities, powers or people. Jer 1:7 But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Jer 1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. KJV 9. Fearless preaching ignites faith in God and is the kind of preaching that walks and lives by faith, not by sight. It is preaching in the face of impossible odds, totally confident in the power and message of the Sent One. Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. KJV 10. Fearless preaching is unto death. To live is Christ, to die is gain. NO FEAR OF MAN or FEAR OF DEATH COMES CAN STOP FEARLESS PREACHING. 11. FEARLESS PREACHING IS A MAGNET FOR SPIRITUAL WARFARE, TRIALS AND TESTINGS, PERSECUTION, IMPRISONMENT AND EVEN DEATH. WE LEARN THIS FROM THOSE IN THE EARLY CHURCH AND THOSE THAT DIED IN THE FAITH. James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. KJV Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. KJV 12. Fearless preaching casts out devils. Fearless preaching sets the captives free from sin and death and demonic strongholds in their lives. Fearless preaching is not afraid to preach against the Devil, and expose his demonic plots in the lives of people AND EXPEL DEMONS! Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; KJV 13. Fearless preaching convicts the sinner and corrects the saint. Fearless preaching brings repentance and confession. 14. Fearless preaching is “out of the box” preaching. It cannot be contained by religion or tradition. It cannot be bought with money or favors. 15. Fearless preaching will turn families, churches, cities, nations, governments and people’s lives upside down to get them right side up! “These that have turned the world upside down are come here also;” Acts 17:6b 16. Fearless preaching brings reformation, restoration, reconciliation, revival, renewal, and true transformation. Without fearless preaching nothing will change. Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: KJV 17. Fearless preaching will make enemies of the Cross, but it will also birth in souls into the Kingdom of God For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. Phil 3:18 18. Fearless preaching is the only kind of preaching that reformers preached. Reform is birthed and activated when the true fearless preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom is preached. 19. Fearless preaching is not for cowards. You have to be bold and have courage to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. KJV 20. One fearless sermon preached can do more than a thousand watered down, sugar water sermons! www.jgmenternational.org www.raphadeliveranceuniv.org

We repent for not praying for our national and local leaders. We declare it is time to preach a fearless Gospel in the face of perversion, terrorism, same sex unions and perversion of marriage and family. We declare that there is a mantle of LOVE that can cover a multitude of faults and there is the Blood of Christ that can wash us, and our churches and our nation, white as snow. Release to us the boldness and courage to bring about the reformation that our nation so desperately needs. BIRTH AND BRING FORTH THE REFORMERS OF GOD. Let the mantle of the reformer be received by those with a heart for salvation and reconciliation.

HOLY SPIRIT BREATHE REFORMATION UPON US FROM THE THRONE ROOM OF GOD. Raise us the generation now and generation next of reformers to usher in God’s holy reformation, change, complete turnabout to righteousness, in JESUS NAME.

9.     Fearless preaching ignites faith in God and is the kind of preaching that walks and lives by faith, not by sight.  It is preaching in the face of impossible odds, totally confident in the power and message of the Sent One.

Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. KJV

 10.  Fearless preaching is unto death. To live is Christ, to die is gain. NO FEAR OF MAN or FEAR OF DEATH COMES CAN STOP FEARLESS PREACHING.

 11.   FEARLESS PREACHING IS A MAGNET FOR SPIRITUAL WARFARE, TRIALS AND TESTINGS, PERSECUTION, IMPRISONMENT AND EVEN DEATH. WE LEARN THIS FROM THOSE IN THE EARLY CHURCH AND THOSE THAT DIED IN THE FAITH.

James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. KJV

Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.  KJV

 12.   Fearless preaching casts out devils.  Fearless preaching sets the captives free from sin and death and demonic strongholds in their lives. Fearless preaching is not afraid to preach against the Devil, and expose his demonic plots in the lives of people AND EXPEL DEMONS!

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; KJV

 13.  Fearless preaching convicts the sinner and corrects the saint. Fearless preaching brings repentance and confession.

 14.   Fearless preaching is “out of the box” preaching.  It cannot be contained by religion or tradition.  It cannot be bought with money or favors.

 15. Fearless preaching will turn families, churches, cities, nations, governments and people’s lives upside down to get them right side up!

“These that have turned the world upside down are come here also;” Acts 17:6b

 16.   Fearless preaching brings reformation, restoration, reconciliation, revival, renewal, and true transformation.  Without fearless preaching nothing will change.

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: KJV

17.   Fearless preaching will make enemies of the Cross, but it will also birth in souls into the Kingdom of God

For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ Phil 3:18

 18.   Fearless preaching is the only kind of preaching that reformers preached. Reform is birthed and activated when the true fearless preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom is preached.

 19.   Fearless preaching is not for cowards. You have to be bold and have courage to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

Acts 4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. KJV

20. One fearless sermon preached can do more than a thousand watered down, sugar water sermons!

15 SIGNS YOUR CHURCH IS IN TROUBLE

By Bishop Dr. Jackie L. Green, D. Min- JGM ENTERNATIONAL PRAYERLIFE INSTITUTE

1. When the church is tired of spiritual warfare and no longer shows up for active prayer, intercession, BIBLE Study and fasting patrols. This opens the door to demonic infiltration. Don’t give up the ground you have already attained and taken from the enemy.

2. When the church becomes locked in ROUTINE and content with the way things are and have lost their sense of urgency for soul winning. Convenience is a dangerous thing for leadership and the church.

3. When the church is more concerned about their physical “building” that the Body of Christ being an active witness for Christ- not a building but a living organism/people. Don’t let a building or bills keep your church in bondage.  Move with the Holy Spirit. Stay under the tent of His presence and power.  Jesus was mobile and led by the Spirit of God.

4. The leadership begins to “number the people” instead of trusting in the Lord for their provision, vision and miraculous signs and wonders. The size of a church does not determine it’s power and authority.

5. The church has lost sight of their vision for existing and fulfilling the Great Commission.

6. The leaders within the church cease to be available and willing to serve and sacrifice for the sake of the Kingdom.

7. When the church is no longer preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, but  preaching a partial gospel or another gospel that is popular and will tickle the ears of the people. Beware of false teachings, false doctrine and false teachers that will try to enter your fellowship.

8. When the Word of God isn’t central in every decision that is made!  A CHURCH WITHOUT THE WORD OF GOD AND THE LOVE OF GOD AND THE GRACE OF GOD IS IN TROUBLE!

9. When the church starts to compare themselves to other churches as a means of success standards.  This can breed division.  A church must guard against division, discord and demonic influences. Remember your unique calling and anointings.  Never stop praying and believing God for healings, deliverance, signs and wonders.

10. When the leadership and people in the church lose sight of the next generation.  This also means to not let sexual sins run rampart in the church for the next generation to see. Any church where Jezebel and witchcraft is tolerated, the church is in trouble.

11. When the leaders do not have times of refreshing and stop walking by faith and make decisions “by sight.” The just shall live by faith.

12. When the church is in bondage to financial woes instead of being a storehouse of giving and blessings to others, the community and the household of faith.  Leaders should ask God for a financial strategy and repent of mistakes and neglect of the ministry.

14. When the congregation is dependent on just the Pastor and there is not team work in the ministry.  This causes burnout of senior leaders and a way for the enemy to attack.

15.  When the leaderships is not able to discern the times and seasons that the ministry or church is in.  Churches go through seasons. Four things that are constant in every church are: change, transition, spiritual warfare and financial challenges. Without these four challenges a church will not grow.  Therefore, don’t be afraid to make changes, see transitions as positive, accept the life of spiritual warfare and know that financial challenges cause us to depend totally on God. Remember the church is not a building, but the Body of Christ.

12 Steps To Spiritual Alignment

12 Steps to Staying Aligned with God By: Bishop Jackie Green

JEREMIAH 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you…”

As prophets and prophetic people I know that personally I am in alignment with God’s will for my life in twelve ways:

(l) Knowing His Voice… when He speaks, I obey.

(2) Quick obedience … Usually the first unction you hear is the Lord. (Rebellion and procrastination always pulls you out of alignment)

(3) The Word of God… is His will for my life. Saturate yourself in the Word of God

(4) Intercession…. Stay in the company of strong intercessors who can hear from God and also confirm or bring wise counsel to you as you go forward. Prayer is our key alignment on a daily basis.

(5) Dreams and visions- this is key and also included in this is journaling

(6) Prophetic Words- This has helped me to be aligned in the present and helped me make choices for my future and the future of the ministry

(7) Passion and Patience- I try to stay in the center of my passion and giftings… this helps to keep you in alignment. Stay in your lane and you will stay aligned. Don’t be in a hurry. Learn to wait on the Lord. When in doubt… don’t.

(8) Walk by faith and not by sight… some things God will ask of us don’t make sense to others.. but when I know His voice, I follow Him. Without faith we cannot please Him or be in alignment in the Spirit.

(9) Praying in the Spirit when I am in doubt or fear. Pray it through whatever the issues is and God will bring clarity.

(10) Worship … this always opens my spiritual ears to hear and to know the way I should go. In the place of true worship we can always hear the Lord and sense His presence. In His Presence is fullness of joy, peace and re-alignment.

(11) Forgiveness-Unforgiveness is probably the number one reason most Christians are not in alignment with the purposes and plans of God for their lives. Get rid of resentment, rebellion, bitterness, hatred and works of the flesh, and you will be re-aligned with God’s best for your life.

(12) Personal Deliverance- Demons block purpose and holy alignment. Make sure to have ongoing deliverance and healing in our life. Sometimes our associations keep us out of alignment. (Ungodly soulties) Get deliverance and your purpose will come clearer and clearer.

God Put a Ring on It! (So Take the Bitter with the Sweet)

Exodus 15:22-27

Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water.  When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah).   So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?” Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became fit to drink. There the Lord issued a ruling and instruction for them and put them to the test. He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.” Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and seventy palm trees, and they camped there near the water.

All the single ladies, all the single ladies All the single ladies, all the single ladies All the single ladies, all the single ladies All the single ladies

'Cause if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it Don't be mad once you see that he want it 'Cause if you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it Don't be mad once you see that he want it If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it

Beyonce Giselle Knowles

Put a ring on it signifies:

(l) Ownership- I belong to someone

(2) Covenantship- I made a promise before God and man

(3) Faithfulness and fidelity- I will be true to you and forsake all others

(4)  Love-  In times of bitter or sweet, in the good or hard times

Exodus is the true account of God’s love for the nation of Israel.  He delivers them out of 430 years of bondage.  Years before that God has made a covenant with ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.  GOD PUT A RING ON ISRAEL.  GOD PUT A RING ON HIS PEOPLE.  HE WOULD BE THEIR GOD AND THEY WOULD BE HIS PEOPLE… IN GOOD TIMES AND BITTER TIMES,  IN HARD TIMES AND FUN TIMES, IN TIMES OF PLENTY AND TIMES OF LACK, IN TIMES OF SLAVERY AND TIMES OF FREEDOM, HE PUT A RING ON IT… HE PUT A RING ON ISRAEL, HIS PEOPLE, AND NO MATTER BITTER OF SWEET, HE WAS TEACHING THEM HE WOULD BE WITH THEM.  After 430 Years, God heard their cry and He remembered his covenant… and HE REMEMBERED HE HAD PUT A RING ON ISRAEL FINGER, AND HE WAS OBLIGATED TO DELIVER HER.

SO HE DELIVERED ISRAEL WITH A STRONG ARM, OPENED THE RED SEA FOR HER AND SHE WALKED THROUGH ON DRY LAND WHILE PHARAOH AND HIS ARMY WERE CHASING HER.  THEN HE CLOSED UP THE RED SEA AND ALL OF PHAROAHS ARMY DROWNED.  You can read of God's covenant song in Exodus 15.

God put a Ring on It!

(Covenant with His Holy People)

I will be your God and You will be My People.

New Living Translation I will claim you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt. Exodus 6:7

POINT ONE - Sweet things that are not always best for us. We need the bitter as well as the sweet.

Testimonies are birthed from the tests we have in life.  Some Christians act like crème puffs… a little hardness, a little suffering and you realize they murmur and grumble during a test.  We must be tested.  We must have bitter times.  That is part of the Christian walk.

Bitter is better… for diabetes.  Too must sweetness can hurt a diabetic.  So it is with Christians, bitter is better, because the bible says:

1 Peter 5:10 (ESV)

10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

I got established in my Christian walk, not on easy street, but on hardtimes streets.  I grew more in the bitter times of testing than in the sweet moments.

 "And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter" (Revelation 10:8-10).

John tells us that when the book was in his mouth it was very sweet, but when he had eaten it his inward parts were made bitter. This is most instructive. There is no sweeter portion in all Scripture than that which God has revealed concerning the manifestation of His blessed Son. Prophetic truth is generally sweet and attractive to those whose interest is just being awakened in it. But, if followed up, if the book is really eaten, it leads to self-judgment, and to separation from evil, and this will always be bitter; for there is not one of us who readily takes the place that God's Word would put him in during this period of Christ's rejection. And so the point here is that God's truth makes demands. If you conscientiously undertake to walk in the truth revealed, you too will know something of its bitterness. You cannot enjoy things that you used to enjoy, if you receive the prophetic testimony, and walk in the power of what is revealed there.

When God is in covenant with you, it will have a definite effect upon your life: It will either bring you closer to Christ, or it will take you farther from Him.

Passover Seder Plate

Image

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PRAY FOR ME IN MY TIME OF BITTER CUP OF TESTING, DON’T INTERFER WITH IT.

LET ME GO THROUGH IT, DON’T HINDER MY GROWTH.

Significance

Each of the six items arranged so on the plate has special significance to the retelling of the story of the exodus from Egypt, which is the focus of this ritual meal. The seventh symbolic item used during the meal — a stack of three matzos — is placed on its own plate on the Seder table. Others place the Seder plate on top of the stack of matzos.

The six traditional items on the Seder Plate are as follows:

  • Maror and chazeret — Bitter herbs, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of the slavery the Hebrews endured in Egypt. In Ashkenazi tradition, either horseradish or romaine lettuce may be eaten in the fulfillment of the mitzvah of eating bitter herbs during the Seder. Sephardic Jews often use curly parsley, green onion, or celery leaves.
  • Charoset — A sweet, brown mixture representing the mortar used by the Hebrew slaves to build the storehouses or pyramids of Egypt. In Ashkenazi Jewish homes, Charoset is traditionally made from chopped nuts, grated apples, cinnamon, and sweet red wine. Sephardi recipes typically call for dates and honey in addition to chopped nuts, cinnamon, and wine.
  • Karpas — A vegetable other than bitter herbs, which is dipped into salt water at the beginning of the Seder. Parsley, celery or boiled potato is usually used. The dipping of a simple vegetable bounces into salt water (which represents tears) mirrors the pain felt by the Hebrew slaves in Egypt.
  • Z'roa — Also called Zeroah, it is special as it is the only element of meat on the Seder Plate. A roasted lamb or goat shankbone, chicken wing, or chicken neck; symbolizing the korban Pesach (Pesach sacrifice), which was a lamb that was offered in the Temple in Jerusalem, then roasted and eaten as part of the meal on Seder night.
  • Beitzah — A roasted hard-boiled egg, symbolizing the korban chagigah (festival sacrifice) that was offered in the Temple in Jerusalem and roasted and eaten as part of the meal on Seder night. Although both the Pesach sacrifice and the chagigah were meat offerings, the chagigah is commemorated by an egg, a symbol of mourning (as eggs are the first thing served to mourners after a funeral),

Sterling silver seder plate

Many decorative and artistic Seder Plates sold in Judaica stores have pre-formed spaces for inserting the various symbolic foods.

Table set for the seder with a seder plate, salt water, matza, kosher wine and a copy of the Haggadah for each guest

The sixth symbolic item on the Seder table is a plate of three whole matzot, which are stacked and separated from each other by cloths or napkins. The middle matzah will be broken and half of it put aside for the afikoman. The top and other half of the middle matzot will be used for the hamotzi (blessing over bread), and the bottom matzah will be used for the korech (Hillel sandwich).

POINT TWO -  The Bitter things in life reveal our inner hearts and what we are really made of.

While the Sweet things in life are a reward or a brief vacation from trouble.

God uses our difficulties to make us better—not bitter.

Vs. 23 says… so the people grumbled against Moses.  When you are going thru a  bitter time, what do you do?  Are you mean and nasty?  Are you quick to forget what God has done for you lately?

We must learn to be thankful when things don’t go our way.

We must learn to be grateful for what we have.

The Israelites had just come through the Red Sea, Pharoah’s army was drown, they came out of Egypt and 430 years of bondage, my God…. It was sweet.  But by day three of freedom, they were murmuring and complaining.  GOD WILL ALLOW YOU TO GO THROUGH SOME THINGS JUST TO SEE HOW YOU ARE GOING TO ACT?

POINT THREE - THE MATURE CHRISTIAN HAS LEARNED TO TAKE THE BITTER WITH THE SWEET.  Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.  Fleshy Christians, carnal Christians don’t want to suffer one bit.  They want everything sweet, but if God rocks their boat, they sometimes curse the church and God. Can’t take any bitter with the sweet.

Babies want applesauce and fruit, but they don’t want any vegetables at first. They want that breast milk, but no water.

Apostle PAUL FOUND THE SECRET:

Philippians 4:11-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

POINT FOUR- When we obey God and humble ourselves, the  BITTER season will soon pass.

Exodus 15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.

An abundance of fresh water – a well for each tribe, and seventy palm trees. Seventy – seven times ten – a multiple of seven contains the same meaning as seven: completeness, perfection, fulness. The Lord was indicating to them that abundance and blessing came from their obedience to Him and His Word. All that they needed was theirs when they got their hearts right with Him and walked right before Him. Satisfaction and fulfillment was found when the cross was added to the waters of their lives!

POINT FIVE - GOD PUT A RING ON IT… WHEN CHRIST LOVED US SO MUCH, HE DIED AND ROSE FOR US.  CALVARY CROSS’ IS THE RING GOD PUT IT FOR ALL TIMES.  HE WANTED US TO KNOW, THAT BITTER OR SWEET, HE HAS PAID FOR US.

HE PUT A RING ON IT… OUR SALVATION

HE PUT A RING ON IT… OUR HEALING

HE PUT A RING ON IT…OUR FORGIVENESS

HE PUT A RING ON IT… OUR FUTURE IS SECURE

HE PUT A RING ON IT… THEREFORE SATAN IS DEFEATED

HE PUT A RING ON IT… DEATH, HELL AND THE GRAVE HAVE NO STING

HE PUT A RING ON IT… HIS WORD WILL NEVER PASS AWAY

HE PUT A RING ON IT…GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE

HE PUT A RING ON IT… HE SUFFERED, BLED AND DIED FOR YOU AND ME

HE PUT A RING ON IT… HE DIED AND WAS PLACED IN A BORROWED TOMB

HE PUT A RING ON IT… CAUSE HE ROSE WITH ALL POWER IN HIS HAND ON THAT THIRD DAY MORNING…. EARLY… HE PUT A RING ON IT

HE PUT A RING ON IT… HE PROMISED THAT HE WAS GOING TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR HIS BRIDE.. AND THAT HE WAS COMING BACK AGAIN FOR HIS BRIDE… BUT HE ALREADY PUT A RING ON IT CHURCH…

  Yes Christ, put a ring on it….

But he also put the BLOOD ON IT

HE PUT HIS LOVE ON IT

HE PUT HIS POWER ON IT!

I CAN TAKE THE BITTER WITH THE SWEET….

God Speaks To Children

I just recently enjoyed watching the movie, Heaven is For Real about a young boy that emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to Heaven. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town in Nebraska where his father is pastor and struggles to believe his account of Heaven. Somehow during emergency surgery slips the little boy slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. One might ask why did God choose this little boy to show him Heaven? Why would God not show it to the Pastor instead? Well, the message today is similar in that God speaks to a little boy named Samuel during a time when open visions and the prophetic was very rare. My point is that God speaks to those that have a pure heart to hear Him. If God has to bypass adults to get His message in the earth through a child, He will. God will use a child, if we are too busy. God will use a child if He can’t find a pure heart and mind to speak into. God will use a child because they are not full of doubt and fear.  May this message be a reminder that God loves children and youth and He will speak to them today, for “such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

1 Samuel 3:1-10  (NIV)

The Lord Calls Samuel

The boy Samuel ministered before the Lord under Eli. In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions. One night Eli, whose eyes were becoming so weak that he could barely see, was lying down in his usual place. The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the Lord, where the ark of God was.  Then the Lord called Samuel.  Samuel answered, “Here I am.”  And he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.”  But Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down.  Again the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.”  “My son,” Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.”  Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord: The word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him.  A third time the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.”  Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place. The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”  Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening."

First of all, we see that Eli was lying down—sleeping, comfortable—in his place, not in the Lord’s place. Eli’s eyes had begun to grow dim—he chose to be blind to the sins of his sons, which perhaps was part of the reason for the cause of his physical blindness as well. But the young boy Samuel was lying down in the tabernacle where the ark of God was. The ark of God speaks of the presence of the Lord. The shekinah glory—the manifest presence of the Lord—dwelled in the tabernacle over the ark (between the cherubims). So Samuel was laying down in the presence of the Lord. It was here that the Lord first spoke to Samuel, and note that Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him (1Sam. 3:7).

God Speaks to Children Because:

  1. Their hearts are pure.
  2. They have not been contaminated  by the world.
  3. They have childlike faith and are not fearful.
  4. They are sensitive to the Spirit realm.
  5. They are truthful.
  6. They can discern true from false many times.
  7. For such is the kingdom of heaven….

Principles for Hearing God’s Voice:

  1. Vs. 1 – We must be in an environment that strengthens our hearing.
  2. Vs. 1 – God will speak even to children.
  3. Vs. 1 – “Hearing God” comes as we serve and minister.
  4. Vs. 1 – The Word of God is precious today.
  5. Vs. 1 – The Voice of God is precious.
  6. Vs. 1 – Unless God speaks there is no understanding or clear vision for our lives.
  7. Vs. 2 – As we get older our hearing of God’s voice should get sharper.
  8. Vs. 6 – At first when God speaks we may make mistakes.
  9. Vs. 8 – God will speak over and over until we hear. 
  10. Vs. 8 – Sometimes others will have to help us hear God correctly.
  11. Vs. 8 – Sometimes others can perceive before we hear what God is saying to us.
  12. Vs. 8 – As we grow we will rely less on others to help us hear.
  13. Vs. 8 – As we grow we will not always look for “a word” from others.  We will hear directly from God.
  14.  Vs. 9 - We must be able to distinguish God’s voice.
  15. Vs. 9 – When we hear accurately we will respond correctly.
  16. Vs. 10 – When God speaks we must be able to respond, “Speak Lord”.
  17. Vs. 10 – We must not be afraid of God’s Voice.
  18. Vs. 19 – We grow in our listening to God’s Voice.
  19. Vs. 19 – As God speaks it is a sign He is with us. Do not take His Voice lightly. 

Stuff Parents Need to Know About Kids:

  1. Prophetic children hear and write songs at a young age
  2. Prophetic children must be careful of the music and movies they listen to.  Demonic movies and demonic music defile their young spirits. (i.e., Harry Potter)
  3. Prophetic children love drama and theatre.
  4. Prophetic children can discern demons and evil. (Judah)
  5. Prophetic children have a “watchman’s” dimension built into them.  They love to watch over other children and be a caregiver.
  6. Prophetic children are a good judge of character, so listen to them when they express concerns about certain people in the midst of them.
  7. Prophetic children are magnets for abuse and religious spirits that want to control and defile the prophetic gifts in them.
  8. Prophetic children need protection from any one and anything that will harness and crush their young and innocent free spirit.
  9. Prophetic children are prone to be raw and honest and not given to telling lies. 
  10. Prophetic children show an interest in writing very early and like to express themselves through writing things down.  Encourage them to express themselves.
  11. The real key to raising prophetic children is found in 1Corinthians Chapter 13

WE MUST LOVE AND TRAIN CHILDREN INTO DESTINY AND PURPOSE!

Honor VS. Dishonor in America

  Mark 6:1-6 (GNT)

Jesus Is Dishonored at Nazareth

6 Jesus left that place and went back to his hometown, followed by his disciples. 2 On the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue. Many people were there; and when they heard him, they were all amazed. “Where did he get all this?” they asked. “What wisdom is this that has been given him? How does he perform miracles? 3 Isn't he the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren't his sisters living here?” And so they rejected him.4 Jesus said to them, “Prophets are respected everywhere except in their own hometown and by their relatives and their family.”5 He was not able to perform any miracles there, except that he placed his hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 He was greatly surprised, because the people did not have faith. Then Jesus went to the villages around there, teaching the people.              

As an intercessor for our nation, the Lord laid on my heart  one of  His concerns for American.  One of the major demonic spirits that has come down through our nation is the “spirit of dishonor” that seems to propel Americans to dishonor God  and hate and dishonor their presidential leaders with a vengeance when things don’t go their way.  Americans have had a silver spoon in their mouths being blessed as the wealthiest nation on earth.  But nations have fallen throughout history when this spirit of dishonor comes upon the people. 

Definition of HonorTo honor means to ascribe value to a person without stumbling over who they are not. We celebrate the grace that is on a person without them needing to be something else. We need to celebrate the victory, presence and achievement of another as if it is our very own.  It is kin to showing respect. The inability to celebrate another will disqualify you from receiving the very thing that you are praying for.

History has shown that the spirit of dishonor to God and those in authority over a nation can lead  to moral and spiritual decay.  What causes a nation to fall? Edward Gibbons in his article on:  "The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire states that “many "superpowers" have risen and fallen over time: Romans, Greeks, Assyrians, Babylonians, and many more for such reasons as:

1. Decline in Morals and Values       2. Public Health        3. Political Corruption        4. Unemployment 5. Inflation                          6. Urban decay               7. Inferior Technology           8. Military Spending

  • I want to add to this list rejection of God’s Word and the Bible is another major reason nations fall and decline.  I believe the church must teach the world what true honor looks like. Real honor begins with God as Father and Creator.

We must understand the Jesus was dishonored in His own hometown.  Wherever we dishonor God and the movement of God, there can be no great miracles, signs and wonders.  Honor of the Lord releases blessings of the Lord.  Dishonor of Jesus Christ, releases judgment and curses.

Nine Things We as Believers are to Honor.

1. Honor God- Proverbs 3:9

2.Honor Kings/Authorities- I Peter 2:17

3.Honor our Parents- Ephesians 6:1-4

4.Honor Elders (Pastors) Double Honor- I Timothy 5:17

5. Honor our spouses- Ephesians 5

6.Honor widows indeed- I Tim 5:3

7.Honor the elderly or aged – Leviticus 19:32

8.Honor one another- Romans 12:10

9.Honor all men – I Peter 2:17

“The reason the “spirit of dishonor” is so  heavy in our nation is because America has refused

to honor the Lord first of all.  Secondly, the have refused to honor their presidents and

thirdly they have no honor for the Word of God. Dishonor will bring God’s displeasure with us. Even the Church in America and our children is being tainted with the spirit of “dishonor.”

What does it mean to honor God?  How does He honor us in return?  We honor God when we make it our chief ambition in life to please Him, to love Him and to serve Him at all times.  This is the way that Jesus lived.  He said "I honor My Father" (John 8:49) and in John John 8:29, "I do always those things that please Him".  A man without God, on the other hand, may seek the honor of his fellow man rather than the honor that comes from God (John 5:44).  A number of Bible passages tell us how we can honor God and how He honors us in return.

1.  We honor the Lord by trusting Him with our whole heart.  Jesus told us that it is God's will that "all men should honor the Son even as they honor the Father" (John 5:23,24). 

2.   We honor the Lord by serving Him.  Jesus said, "If any man serve Me, him will My Father honor" (John 12:20-26

3.   We honor God by setting our love upon Him.  Psalm 91:14,15 reads, "Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high because he has known my name.  He shall call upon me and I will answer him:  I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him

4.   We honor God with our substance.  Proverbs 3:9,10 reads, "Honor the Lord with your substance and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so shall your barns be filled with plenty.

We must rebuke and teach against the “spirit of dishonor” and release the spirit of honor back into our nation.  We must break the demonic pattern of:

  • Dishonor of holy matrimony but the honor of civil unions
  • Dishonor of sexual purity but the honor of pre-marital sex
  • Dishonor of the Bible but the honor of the occult and false religions
  • Dishonor of Christmas but the honor of Halloween
  • Dishonor of the Ten Commandments but honor of everybody’s Ten Suggestions
  • Dishonor of mother and father but the honor of children’s rights
  • Dishonor of the elderly but honor of the youthful lusts
  • Dishonor of hard work but honor of crime and crack cocaine
  • Dishonor of the Holy Spirit but honor of evil spirits and wickedness in high places
  • Dishonor for human life but honor of abortion and shedding of innocent blood
  • Dishonor of the President of the U.S. but honor of divided political agendas
  • Dishonor of the poor and widow but honor of Wall Street money changers
  • Dishonor of the poor and those on welfare but honor of the rich and famous
  • Dishonor of law enforcement and order but honor building more prisons
  • Dishonor of God our Creator and honor of theories on evolution
  • Dishonor of Christ as Savior and Lord but honors themselves as a god

There is a great dishonor and persecution that is coming upon the Church.  We must ready ourselves for it, but we must not keep silent.  We must stand upon the Word of God and not allow the Word of God to be dishonored.

National dishonor for our president, the flag and our country is growing rapidly. But there are still those that have honor and the fear of the Lord.  The American flag is symbol of our nation’s vision for freedom for all and it is a reminder of those that lost their lives defending our freedom. The American Flag has been burned, dishonored, denied, cursed, scandalized and refused. But God has heard our prayers and honors the prayers of the righteous. O Lord, release a spirit of honor in place of dishonor in America, for many generations will be affected and under your judgment if we do not teach them how to honor God, honor those in authority and one another. Forgive us O Lord when we have dishonored your Son Jesus Christ in out nation and rejected Him as Savior and Lord.
