Metro Watch Report — June 1, 2012 (Catch the Wave)
Watch Focus: Mexico, Elections
Behold, Look and See!
And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. (Ezekiel 43:2 NKJV)
Guest artist Stephen Roach led a powerful night of worship.
Message: Mahesh Chavda
Mahesh began by telling how waves of glory would come when Bonnie and he first moved here. People would come to our house and fall out in the Presence. Wonderful mysteries…something is happening.
God is no respecter of persons. God will show up if you are hungry and thirsty. He’s ready to show up again.
The surfboard used in tonight’s theme s prophetic. Some of you have been nudged. The enemy is trying to get you off the board. The Lord is sending angels to get you back on the board. The glory is over you. This is a period of grace. Every time you connect into the body and blood of Jesus, you can get back on the board.
So if you have fallen off your surfboard, get back on. You have destiny and purpose. You are going to do something in this hour. Something significant, important, strategic. There have been past waves. But, today, June 1 will mark history according to a British journalist. He said that we will look back on today as the day that the presidential election was decided. There are things being decided of major importance that will affect your life.
Shift. Even today you are living in the middle of shift. God has a purpose for you and America. Joel 2:28-29: “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants, I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
In 1972 Bonnie and I got zapped by the Holy Ghost during the Charismatic Revival. We were excited about God. The glory of God shakes you to the foundations. We got on the surfboard about forty years ago. Get on the surfboard and do not be surprised when the devil tries to knock you off. Choose not to take it. People will try to put their garbage on you. Don’t let them! Forgive them.
The biggest wave of revival is coming and is at hand. Just this past October, Garrett McNamara rode a ninety-foot wave, which has been the largest yet. He was asked how did it and he said, “I didn’t fall off.” So look up! Tell yourself, “I am not going to fall off. I’m going to stay hungry”.
Last week we had Pentecost. There are certain periods you want to discern in the spirit. The original Pentecost was at Mount Sinai and it was fifty days after Passover, after their deliverance by the blood of the lamb. God came down, His Presence came down. And the law, which is the Word of God, came from His Presence. They had the blood but they needed His Presence and the law. It was the first time that God came down to a people. And His Presence caused a shift, an open heaven, and He blessed them for many generations. His Presence created an atmosphere of signs, wonders and miracles for transformation.
In 2012, I am laying the foundation for you to ride the wave into glory for you and your children, finances, destiny and ministry. You have to learn the things of God from spiritual fathers and mothers.Catch the wave and learn to be a disciple. I am jealous for us in this generation.
We recently returned from a mission trip to South Korea. The Koreans are hungry for God. May you get a divine hunger and thirst! It is key! It is God who makes a difference. As you are hungry, the blessings will take care of themselves. John 7:37. Stay thirsty! Always want another drink of the Lord’s Presence. There are secular observers saying there is a shift taking place. June 1. It is being decided. We should have eagle eyes to see far ahead.
In the time of Pentecost, persecution was coming and they got on their surfboards of revival. They determined to stay in the wave. And it was through corporate prayer. Act 4:29-31: “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. Keep being filled.
The real Lamb came, took our sins, died and was resurrected. That was a mighty shift in history. We now have hope. Faith in Jesus brings a historic shift. Demonic strongholds were broken down during the early church revival. Kings and empires were falling and being readjusted. Religious spirits will come in forms of religion and persecution. But God puts a divine hunger and thirst in His people.
In 1517, Martin Luther and his 95 theses, and others like Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox were used to bring reformation. Revival will hit people who are hungry for more. Revival leads to reformation. Living by the Word of God will transform a culture. Wesley, Whitefield and Edwards who helped usher in the Great Awakenings are a few more. Justification by faith. Finney and the Azusa Revival. History of nations were changed. So we welcome the Holy Spirit and we love the Word of God, and our children will come into it and then culture will be transformed.
We see June is a time of historic shift for our nation. Which direction will our nation go? November is the National Election. Will we choose the Judeo-Christian belief of our founding fathers or will we allow others to offer society abortion? Major voices are pro-abortion. Sixty percent of black babies are being aborted and the media is promoting that. I am being spiritual. Reformation follows revival. A society that promotes same sex marriage … Are these values we want to raise our children in?
I remember President Regan standing up during a National Prayer breakfast that Bonnie and I attended. He said, “The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine upon you and give you peace”. This was like David’s prayer over the nation. However, the spirits of anti-Christ are there heavy because the leaders say, “I am for homosexual marriage”. Our leader bowed to the holy mosque. We need to understand the spiritual language.
The headquarters are in heaven above the election. Ps. 24…Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle!... His Church is the direct representative of God’s kingdom. We must take our place on the wall. Jesus, we declare You Lord over the United States and the nations. June 1 we begin our corporate agreement. All watchmen everywhere all over the world. We are going to determine which direction our nation is going. Jesus is Lord over the United States.
In 2007, I had a vision of a giant python slithering toward me. The Lord showed me a great demonic principality was coming over this nation. Eph. 6:12 - For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Apostolic direction: Our place of strength is to pull down strongholds and the spirit of divination. Acts 16:16-18. Today, I loose you ladies and your swords. You have authority as the men. When you think your child is in danger, you act. Women arise and men take your place. The media will try to convince us that bad is good and good is bad. That is the spirit of enchantment, like the Pied Piper. Young people, God is giving you authority. You are a new knighthood, your sword can be dedicated to the cause of the King. Jesus is the King of glory! And it is not just the church, it is the anointed church of Jesus Christ. And the more corporate prayer, the better…
After Labor Day, we will have a forty-day fast. The calendar needs to be covered from June 1 through November 6. The King is blowing the shofar. Churches join to pray. 2 Chron. 7:14. The fire will stay lit by the furnace of prayer. Bind the spirit of fraud. The elections won’t be fixed. And right now we are economic slaves in bondage to China. God will use revival to transform the culture, arts and music, even in Hollywood.
Mahesh referenced Victor Davis Hanson’s writing in Culture Still Matters: This week I am leading a military-history tour on the Rhine River from Basel, Switzerland, to Amsterdam. You can learn a lot about Europe’s current economic crises by ignoring the sophisticated barrage of news analysis and instead just watching, listening, and talking to people as you go down river. But government-driven efforts to change national behavior often ignore stubborn cultural differences that reflect centuries of complex history as well as ancient habits and adaptations to geography and climate. Greeks can no more easily give up siestas than the Swiss can mandate two-hour afternoon naps. If tax cheating is a national pastime in Palermo, by comparison it is difficult along the Rhine. Do average passersby throw down or pick up litter? After a minor fender-bender, do drivers politely exchange information, or do they scream and yell with wild gesticulations? Is honking constant or sporadic? Are crosswalks sacrosanct? Do restaurant dinners usually start or wind down at 9 P.M.? Can you drink tap water, or should you avoid it? Do you mostly pay what the price tag says, or are you expected to pay in untaxed cash and then haggle over the unstated cost? Are construction sites clearly marked and fenced to protect pedestrians, or do you risk walking into an open pit or getting stabbed by exposed rebar? To put these crude stereotypes more abstractly, is civil society mostly moderate, predicated on the rule of law, and meritocratic — or is it characterized by self-indulgence, cynicism, and tribalism? The answers to these questions do not hinge on race, money, or natural wealth, but they do involve culture and the way average people predictably live minute by minute.
How you behave shows the culture you come from. Revival changes the values of people. Good manners come from the root of love. As we welcome the Holy Spirit to come over our nation, it should affect our culture and reform our economy. Don’t spend money on frivolous stuff but bless the poor and hurting. Be prosperous people.
Why pray for revival? We are at a crossroads. Catch the wave of the Holy Spirit. Lord, let Your power come! Lord, stretch forth Your hand in healing, signs, wonders and miracles.
There is am impartation coming from the living God to each one of you tonight. You will prosper like never before. God wants to give us abundance like never before.
Mahesh prayed a prayer of blessing over the people and our nation and released this declaration: Stand up for Jesus!
Bonnie Chavda: We are not alone. We enter into the reality in the spirit. We are joined with an innumerable number of witnesses. We join with these and pray in harmony. Yes and Amen. Bonnie prayed the prayer of the Watchmen from God Shed His Grace of Thee by Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda.
Prayers: Let God Arise Seven Point Prayer
Declare Jesus Lord Over Your Nation: Jesus is Lord over the United States of America. We ask that Jesus would be established as Lord. You are our Lawgiver and King. Turn this nation again. Let Your kingdom be established in this nation. Your light counters the darkness.
Submit to God and Resist the Devil: Thank You for the promise as we submit all of us and our nation to You. Thank you that the devil has to flee. We plead the blood over the elections, congress and national convention. We declare You Lord over our family, church and city.
Come Holy Spirit: We ask that You would come Holy Spirit and bring restoration and resurrection power over this nation. Job 29. Justice and blessing. We ask for grace as we stand up as the Church to be a bright light. Let Your restoration come Holy Spirit. You are awesome in our natural eyes. Help us to see and hear You.
National Elections: We declare our eyes are on You. You are the beginning and the end of our faith. We look to You as we pray for the election. Speak to Your Bride. Speak to us Lord and wake us up out of our slumber that we may once again see with clarity. You have not forgotten what has been established in this nation. Lord, give us leaders such that it will be to Your glory to give us the victory through them.
Bless Israel: Gen. 12. Those who bless Israel will be blessed. Thank You for Your nation and people. You care about everything concerning them. Your eyes and hand are upon them. You are a covenant keeping God. You keep Your word and fulfill Your promises. We will always be a friend to Israel. We pray for peace in Jerusalem.
Heal Our Economy: Dig up the wells. Abraham dug wells for land to prosper. Isaac dug up the wells. Our forefathers did things that produced prosperity. The enemy filled the wells and we are going to dig up the wells. Spring up oh wells. In God we trust. We declare prosperity. Let it go back to the well of the Lord. We are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. Thank You for opening up the wells.
Thanksgiving: The Lord is wrapping us up in thanksgiving. Jesus gave thanks before He fed the five thousand. We give thanks and lift up a thanksgiving offering to the Lord.
Mexico: Breakthrough. We pray that Mexico would be healed in the name of Jesus. We speak to principalities and powers, “No more!” We command release of the Holy Spirit in Mexico. We ask that a wave of revival sweep over them. The Lord is breaking the spirit of oppression. Thank You for freedom. Blow Holy Spirit. Love will overflow and fear will break.
Joshua 6:16; Jeremiah 29:7
