Watch Report – June 10, 2011
Celebration of Pentecost
The Key is to Hunger and Thirst for More of God!
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. Ps. 46:4 (NIV)
The worship team led an extended, joyous time of stepping into the River of God in praise and thanksgiving and crying out for the Reign/Rain of His Presence!
Israel: How great is Jerusalem. Bless Israel. Israel’s borders will remain firm. No one will take Israel out of God’s hand or the Promised Land from their possession.
America/Troops: Our nation shall Fear the Lord. Angelic protection. Revival.
Church Universal/Local: We pray for every believer to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. Increase our hunger. We have power. The Lord of the Watch is present. God is not slack when it comes to His promises. We are cooperating with Divine destiny.
Fifty days after Passover
The Lord ascended on high. We are a power filled Church. We have been renewed by the Spirit of God. He told us He would not leave us powerless. We are supernatural. We have eternal life and the devil cannot kill us. We are dangerous to the kingdom of darkness. We are nuclear reactors because we are filled with the Holy Spirit. We are persons of destiny and purpose and it’s all about Jesus.
In this era there are creatures of darkness falling from the sky because someone is praising God. As the Church is praying in harmony, demons of violence, drug addiction and gang warfare are falling and dark powers are being defeated.
If we’re hungry for the things of the Living God, He will fill us. God wants us to stay alert. He wants His watchmen on the watch tower. We are to release power in the earth now.
This is the Feast of Shavuot. We honor our Jewish traditions. Our Savior is Jewish! We understand the Old Testament in the New Testament and vice versa. We see in Exodus where God freed the Israelites from bondage with the blood of a lamb. Fifty days later He manifested His glory on Mount Sinai, where the Ten Commandments were given to Moses. This is the original celebration where God gave His word in signs and glory. This is now a season of fresh favor and redemption. We are living in the days of prophecy and destiny. God desires us to celebrate the Feast of Shavuot, Pentecost in 2011. We blow the shofar as a sign.
Right now we are receiving the blessing of what God did years ago. Ex. 19:10-19. God can turn it around for us! Hebrew 12:18-24 is a reflection of Mount Sinai with the Blood of our Lamb, Jesus. On the third day of visitation with Moses on Mt. Sinai, God made a covenant with the Jewish people, His people, with thunderings and lightnings and the sound of the shofar. He gave them the gift of the Torah. They were set apart because they had the Word of God planted. The Torah was their secret code, like the enigma code. Our Secret Code is Jesus Christ! He is the answer of redemption for all.
God came down on that third day and married a people. The Torah is the marriage certificate. The Church (believing Jews and Gentiles) is the Bride of Christ. The Holy Spirit given at Pentecost is the engagement ring. We are bound to the Bridegroom. He is turning our water into wine. Prepare your heart for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
In the news we see where the enemies of Israel are trying to break doors down from every side. When we pray, these powers of darkness will fall. We must keep the big picture. We must be mature Christians and be concerned about the things of God and He will command His blessing.
In 1967, just days before Pentecost, the six-day war ended with Israel getting her rights back to the Western Wall and Jerusalem – her inheritance, her promise that she had not had full, triumphant possession of for thousands of years. And SUDDENLY, she recovered all and against armies that outnumbered her.
The Western Wall is where the Watch of the Lord ® was conceived in a vision from God. Years ago while praying there, Mahesh received a prophetic picture of the Watch being like Ruth lying at the feet of Boaz. Ruth 3:7. So as deep cries out to deep, we are part of the answer. God is turning our water into wine. God’s people will see it different. We will hear from Him as our Commander and Chief. He speaks to us as warriors and His desire is that we thrive in abundance. We must stand in the gap for others.
Ruth was a Gentile believer adopted into God’s family – she is in the very lineage of Christ. She was the one who clung to Naomi, a type of the Holy Spirit, and to the promises of God. And she received special, extravagant favor from Boaz, her kinsman-redeemer. We also have been adopted to receive the full inheritance through Jesus Christ, our kinsman-redeemer. And as the Lord said, we are the Third Day church. As one day is like a thousand years, we are entering into the third day of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and the Lord will visit us with His “suddenlies”. We ask God now for an overflow of favor just as Ruth received. Ruth 2: 8-14. FAVOR NOW AND SUDDENLY!
Isa. 4, 41:17-20; Acts 1:8, 2:17; Amos 9:13; 1Cor 4:5; Joel 2:28; 1 John 5:4; Ps. 102:15; Luke 4
Vision of the Church as an old ghost town in the wilderness with tumbleweeds blowing around. This is the enemy’s plan for the Church, but we declare we will be a Living Stream that flows throughout the earth. Other watchman had similar pictures of a River flowing in the wilderness. Holy Spirit, Rain on us! Matt. 16:18.
Dream of national leaders conferring with some of our watch leaders and the national leaders were receiving our counsel. The watchman in the dream then went to a bed in the corner of the room and pulled the covers over his head.. This is a picture of the Watch and our prayers having influence, like Ruth with Boaz.
Picture of a barge/cargo ship that was heading up stream in the river being pulled into a locked waterway. As we sang The River is Rising the waters were filling up in the chamber. The gateway was opened and the barge was released to cross over into deeper waters of the river. Ps. 100:4 & Isa. 60:18.
As a word of encouragement, the Watch Leader shared a testimony of how her mother very recently received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit after many years of being saved and serving the Lord. Her mother suddenly is seeing God move in amazing ways.
