Greetings from Spokane!
Happy New Year to all of you from Spokane, Washington. I'm sure many of you saw on the news about our record breaking snow storm around Christmas. WOW!!! I watched in shock and awe as the snow kept getting higher in our back yard. 77.8 inches of snow has fallen in Spokane this winter so far! I am happy to report that we are happily thawing out and very much looking forward to Spring.
I'd like to start with Isaiah 43:19:
Behold I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it, and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (amp)
God is really up to something in this hour. The word CHANGE has been spoken into the airwaves and we are watching it take place before our very eyes. We really have to be under the waterfall of the perfect love of God so that NO FEAR can block our view as we watch the Lord come forth and show Himself and His Kingdom. This is a time of great spiritual awakening for many. (Joel 2:28) The remnant of the shackles of the religious spirit within us is being exposed, so that we can be totally set free for the Kingdom within us to come forth. The SHAKING OF THE LORD in Hebrews 12:26-29 is here and the only thing that will remain is what He has created-His unshakable Kingdom. It looks like everything is in an uproar...being upturned but... Faith is not what we see. It is no longer okay to pray into the problem, but we must stand with one another for the ultimate answer. The GOD answer...the Kingdom answer. We need to exude hope, vision and purpose so that our light will shine brighter in the darkest of hours. (Isaiah 60:1-5) Prevailing corporate prayer is meant to bring the Kingdom crashing onto earth. Our job is to make known the manifest wisdom of God to the kingdom of darkness and to all the Earth. We hold the keys... no one else!!! In these desperate times there are so many opportunities- so many divine appointments. God really wants to show Himself in this hour with the fullness of power and the supernatural. He wants to use us to release His Kingdom here on Earth.
Here are some corporate prayer directives:
AN OUTPOURING OF WISDOM AND REVELATION
(EPHESIANS 1:17-18) This also goes with Isaiah 11:2
(7-fold Spirit of God) Let's ask the Lord to fill us with His Spirit. (Isaiah 61) His wisdom and revelation, counsel and might, knowledge and the fear of the Lord. That we can learn to be people who will delight in the fear of the Lord.
AN OUTPOURING OF INTEGRITY
As we have stepped off the " treadmill of religious works," let's cry out for integrity of character. We need to have the evidence of the Spirit of God that dwells within us to be oozing out of our very being.
AN OUTPOURING OF HIS PRESENCE AND POWER
Let's ask the Lord for a fresh infilling of His Spirit. For the purpose of Him showing Himself to the world through His power (dunamis). Healings, signs, wonders, and miracles that are all pointing to Him. So that the knowledge of the Glory of God will once again fill the Earth. (Habakkuk 2:14)
