I Am Large and In Charge, I AM Your God!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic (Ps. 29:2-4, NIV).
Praises went up to God through song and declaration. Our worship is paving the way as Judah (Praise) goes first.
God said He is large and in charge. We must have bulldog faith in these times. The Church is His fueling station.
Message: Jason Oberman
Jason began by restating that God is indeed saying we need Bulldog Faith. In this season it is time to rise up in the Word of God and to exercise our faith. This will happen as we walk in the gifts of the Spirit. We’ve all been given a measure of faith to lay hold of our inheritance. There is an activity in our faith that creates an atmosphere.
Heb. 11:6 It takes faith to please God. He is I AM that I AM. He’s got our back and He will never leave us nor forsake us. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Reach forward… Seek… Release. The stirring of our faith helps us to step out.
Hebrews 11: 1 states “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” In the Greek: Substance is standing under the Title Deed; Faith is the Title Deed of things expected; Hope is the expectation and confidence that it will happen; and evidence is the conviction. So faith is the conviction that I have the Title Deed to the expected thing, what God said, what He promised!
Jason used an example with a chair being faith. We don’t examine the chair before taking a seat. We trust that the chair will hold us once we sit. The Lord just wants us to sit down in the promise as we would in a chair, trusting Him to fulfill the promise.
We cannot go by what we see. Heb. 11:3 The realm of the Spirit (the invisible, the unseen) is the real realm. The world was framed by the Word of the God and is ruled by what is not seen. Do not open the door to fear and unbelief: the majority of the Israelites in the day of Moses did not enter the Promise Land due to a lack of faith. They focused on the walled cities and giants vs. what God had promised.
In 2 Kings 6:16-18, Elisha prayed that his servant’s eyes be opened to see that those who were with them were more than those against them..
In these days the veil is becoming thinner and thinner. We cannot afford to be moved by the natural. We must speak from the place of faith, from the place of God’s sure word.
We viewed a short movie clip of Indian Jones as he stepped out in faith and the bridge over the chasm appeared as he took his first step. Peter stepped out onto the water in faith as the Lord beckoned him to “come”. Matt. 14:29. We too must step out more and more to bring forth miracles. We are a catalyst to the Awakening! We are the ones who will do the stuff. So we need to get out of the boat!!!
Matt. 8:5. Have faith in the Word of God – just say the Word.
Luke 8:43-46.Tenacity plus bulldog type spirit brings power out of heaven that changes things.
Luke 8:47-48.Your faith has made you well. It will manifest from supernatural to the natural.
James 2:20-22. Faith without works is dead. Take steps by believing in Who He Is! Release power to heal and set people free. Move into that place of believing that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Things will shift.
1 Tim. 6:12. Fight the good fight of faith. This is an active statement. What are you facing? Don’t put up with the junk. Lay hold of eternal life.
Matt. 16.We have the keys to bind and loose.
Rom. 8:26. One activity of faith is praying in the Spirit. As we pray in the Spirit, we receive help in attaining by taking hold with another co-laboring together with us: the Holy Spirit helps our weaknesses as He prays according to the will of God. We use our mouth, our breath but as the Spirit flows through, our flesh gets in line and strategies are released.
Jason gave two testimonies of his faith being activated to produce results. One where he prayed for a young girl’s dad to be released from prison based on a word received when praying in the Spirit and the dad was released; and another, when he was challenged by a guy who was inebriated, and as he prayed in the Spirit, the power of God was so strong that the man backed up and even the crowd that gathered acknowledged feeling the Presence of God.
Hurricane: We speak peace, shalom to Irene. Her name means peace and she does not have an identity crisis. We release the breath of God. We declare the Word is powerful and the Lord’s name is over every situation. We stand arm in arm, hand in hand. We declare the Yes and Amen! Cancel destruction! Disperse Irene, we call you by name. God’s voice speaks louder than the waters.
America: The Watch leader reflected on the earthquake that happened that week which was centered in Virginia. She declared that we have a sure foundation in Virginia as it is the birthplace of our nation. The eye of the Lord is over America. No weapon formed against us will prosper. We speak restoration to the ancient foundations. We speak healing for America.
Children: Open your hearts to receive the seal of God. They will be taught by the Lord Himself. They will be the light in the schools. They are marked by the Blood of Jesus. Favor with teachers. They have knowledge and understanding ten times better like Daniels and his friends.
Additional Prayers: Israel, Military, Pastors and Church
Dan. 3; Ps. 24:1-2, 33, 80:19,93; Rev. 22:1; Matt. 9:10; 2 Cor. 5:7
A watchman recently saw a picture of a lioness with a symbol on her forehead. The symbol represented the summoning for an appointed time of war. It’s time for the lionesses. This message is for us, the body. We have all authority and we get divine strategy when we spend time with Him. He gives us victory! Ps. 144:1
Another had a dream of a woman in a church who had a cross on her neck. In the dream, another woman approached her and stated that the cross had been in her family line for 400 years. The first woman was adamant that the cross belonged to her and would not let go of the cross around her neck. The woman with the cross on her neck lived at foundations / beginnings. She also had entered the church through the front door of her grandparent’s home. God is giving us the title deed to our Christian heritage and inheritance in America but we must contend for it and lay hold of it. We must take our place on the wall of intercession for the restoration of our godly foundations in America.
Song: We Speak Peace to the Wind, Peace to the Tornadoes, Stop in Your Tracks.
I had a friend over my house and somehow she fell back on the pavement and hit her head. I began praying in tongues and Jesus gave me the words of peace to speak forth into this situation. God took the hurt away.
Two women were at a gas (“fueling”) station to put air in their tires. Two guys came to help. After they were done with putting air in the tires, the women proceeded to inquire of any prayer needs. The one guy said he didn’t have any, but they noticed he had skinned his leg on a trailer hitch. Through conversation, the women also discovered that this man had actually been living out of his truck. The women began to pray for his leg and included prayers for his salvation and for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This man received Jesus and began praying in tongues.
A youth received a text from a friend asking her how she could receive Jesus into her heart. This exchange went on, using texting, for about two hours. At the end, the young girl gave her life to Jesus! Yeah God!!!!
On Sunday at ministry time, my knees were prayed for by one of the youth. Heat went through my entire body!
