Watch Report – March 11, 2011
The Fruit of the Spirit, Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
The Cross, the Lamb, the Blood, the Reward. We Are the Reward!
There was a silence as described in Hab. 2:20 (MSG) "But oh! God is in his holy Temple! Quiet everyone—a holy silence. Listen!" Some wept, some stood in awe, as others bowed in reverence to the Most High God.
Bonnie began by referencing a letter written by famed author J.R.R. Tolkien to his son. J.R.R Tolkien spoke about the “Blessed Sacrament,” which is communion. He said, “Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament.....There you will find romance, glory, honor, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that: Death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the surrender of all, and yet by the taste (or foretaste) of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships (love, faithfulness, joy) be maintained, or take on that complexion of reality, of eternal endurance, which every man's heart desires.”
Bonnie spoke of an unusual visitation (about 25 years ago) of revelation, deliverance, restoration, and an awe of God during a prayer meeting at their local church. One morning the Cross, alive and bleeding, appeared in a corporate vision. Later that day, Bonnie was at home on her face praying, coming boldly before the Throne according to Hebrews 4:16, and suddenly she got the most uncomfortable feeling. She quieted her soul and could tell that if Jesus was standing in the room, He was standing behind her, and she felt naked and out of place. It felt like the Divine Presence was not between her and the Father, whom she was approaching. The Lord said, “Bonnie, you’ve come up the wrong way; you need to get to know the Blood that has redeemed you.” It was a loving and compassionate rebuke. He said she was approaching Him out of the wrong context. It has nothing to do with us, but everything to do with Him. The Lord is present tonight for us individually, collectively, and for our nation. He wants to impart a fuller divine sense of the working presence of the Blood of Jesus that invades every Believer. The Blood speaks! Our prayer is that God would give us wisdom and revelation of the knowledge of Him (Ephesians 1:17-18) that we might pick up a sound that will go with us from this place tonight forward. You exist presently spiritually and naturally (Hebrews 12:1). We are a point of contact tonight participating in that great victory, which has atomic power to go out through our faith as we celebrate and receive His full provision as watchmen and priest of the Lord! May we all get to know the Blood that redeems!
Communion was served and excerpts, pointing to Jesus and the Cross, were read by watchmen from Mahesh and Bonnie’s new book, The Power of the Cross: Epicenter of Glory.
Bonnie resumed speaking of one of the remarkable martyrs, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who stood for the Gospel and the Community of Christ to arise in difficult times during WWII. He was arrested, imprisoned and executed hours before the allies brought liberty to Europe. His life and testimony is one of the types of glorious mysteries of how God goes about fulfilling His work. We are remembering Calvary in a fresh way in this time. There are many things going on around us in our nation, the nations, the Church, and individually (Japan’s earthquake, chaos in the Middle East, our Economy etc…). At the epicenter of glory, the reality is what Jesus has done in His complete work on the Cross. We are a unique people who have the authority to bring that reality in our world and make a declaration of His glorious triumph. We are shouting in our world, “It Is Finished!” On this authority we keep the Watch of the Lord® tonight.
A Japanese painting was shown of Jesus and His disciples on the Sea of Galilee. Bring your storm to the Cross and realize the Victor stands in the bow of your boat. Our peace is in His Blood! There are going to be breakthroughs, miracles, and healings through the Blood tonight. “Our Father, Who Art in Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name”.
Prayers (We Speak Shalom In Authority to All These Areas!)
Japan: We prophetically sang and danced for Japan, “Great is our God, He is the Lord in Three Forever. When the waves and the wind try to come in, Your Word goes out to perform it! We will not be shaken. Break through the enemies camp with Your glory” . We speak grace and peace over Japan. Let Your Cross shine in Japan. Send them comfort. Bless and reestablish them.
Middle East: Peace and protection for Israel. Loose angels in Israel. Pray for the struggle for freedom in Middle East. Streams of Living Water will come forth!
Armed Forces: Ps. 91:1-8
Local Church: Prosper members. Increase in every area (physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and financially). Yes and Amen to all the promises of God for this House of Prayer! Thank God for our Pastors. Bless the Pastors and their family.
Sickness and Disease: Claim healing and send Your Holy Spirit to heal.
Charlotte Metro and Fort Mill: Total household salvation.
Gal. 5:22; 1 Cor. 13:4-7; Is. 43:2; Pa. 60:1-2
Jesus gives us access to His Throne Room! All our prayers are hitting His throne like a bolt of lightning.
Vision of people before the Throne of God screaming, “I need, I want…….” And then Jesus says, “All these requests come together in one sound that is pleasing to My ears. “
A watchman had a vision of the Lord as the Lamb slain during our time of exalted and expressive praise and He said “I AM NEAR…AND I HAVE A TWO-EDGED SWORD IN MY MOUTH…I AM.” She found the Scripture from Ps. 149:6-9, “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand, To execute vengeance on the nations, And punishments on the peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on them the written judgment— This honor have all His saints.” She testified about how the Lord has given us authority to issue decrees on the nations and as she heard about Japan earlier that day, the word “Shalom” that Pastor Mahesh spoke (ahead of time) at the last Watch rose up in her spirit. So together we decreed Shalom to the earth; Shalom to the ocean; Shalom to the people of Japan; Shalom to the West Coast; Shalom to Wisconsin; Shalom to the Middle East – to Libya, to Egypt; Shalom to Jerusalem … Shalom! ... Shalom! ... Shalom!!!
