Watch Report — July 13, 2012
Watch Focus: Come, Holy Spirit
So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free. (John 8:36 AMP)
We welcomed the Presence of the Lord by lighting the Shabbat candles.
Watch Leader: We ask for the spirit of wisdom and revelation that we may know You better. We present our bodies to You as a living sacrifice. The wind of God is blowing and we ask for the Lord to search our hearts tonight. Ps. 139.
Get into faith; it’s a gift of the Spirit. Stir faith and believe God. There is a faith dial on the side of our head that can open our mind to receive all He has to give us for ourselves and others. I am in faith tonight for the fire of the Holy Spirit to come upon us. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to communicate the love of God to the lost family member, co-worker and stranger. They are lost to the Father right now and we are called to bring the gospel to them. Receive fresh Holy Spirit fire. The people you rub shoulders with need to hear the gospel.
In 1990, I asked, “Who is this Jesus?” and it changed my life. You must get into the battle as a catalyst the Holy Spirit can flow through to reach others. The Lord is simple.
Isaiah 55. Come to the water. The Lord’s bar is always open and it’s always happy hour. Believe on the Lord and confess with your mouth. Drink! Come, Holy Spirit, and refresh. Tiredness, burnout, anxiety, fear and discouragement leave. Peace come.
Everything I’m saying is for you and America. This prayer is for you and America. The prayer is that the fire of God would come through the Body of Christ. Jesus loves His Bride. Be careful what you say about her. The Lord wants to bring restoration.
I am a restored man tonight. I ran from the Lord when I was younger but the Lord restored me. I experienced it. You can experience restoration. This nation can be restored along with the economy. He can put precious stones in the land if He wants to.
Isaiah 61:1-4. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified. They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.
This is a powerful passage. Take it for you and those around you to come to Christ and for America. The Spirit of the Lord is upon you. He wants to increase the intensity. We can do nothing without Him. We must abide in the Vine.
There are a lot of broken hearted people. Let the Lord come in and heal your heart. If you’ve been betrayed, forgive tonight. Tonight is the night for breakthrough. Satan’s nature is to betray no matter the relationship. It’s time to let it go and move on. Let the Lord heal that wound. Sickness can come in when we carry unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment. There is liberty for the captives. Open the prison doors to those who are bound.
Father, I pray that you minister to those mourning and grief stricken. This is for you and also for America. God created us as humans and He loves our humanness; spirit, soul and body. He wants us to have life in its fullness; spirit, soul and body. He wants to restore all areas of our life. Press in for the Lord to touch you.
My father came to this house in 2009 and got born again. He was an atheist. The Lord is seeking out sons and daughters lost to the Father. We’ve got to have grace. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from every sin. Jesus died for the robber, prostitute and cripple. The blood cleanses all! The Lord knows the heart and He says that your sins are forgiven. There are a lot of depressed people out there now. Fast, furious and instant life. God can break through that depression at the root. Good root, good fruit.
Isaiah 61:3. God brings refreshing. Even to a weary body. Pray in the Spirit. Press in the mundane things. Be yourself before the Lord. He can fill you in any circumstance. Stay hungry, stay thirsty. Contend for yourself and America. You become a planting of the Lord because the Spirit of the Lord is upon you. The Lord has planted you in your family, workplace and sphere. It’s about the Spirit of the Lord upon you.
Isaiah 61:4. This is for the nation. Look in the mirror and say that. Peter’s shadow delivered people. May the Lord baptize you in His great love! I received the baptism of love in 1995. I was crying for His pure Presence and a healthy fear of the Lord. And the Lord gave that to me.
Some cities are physically desolate. You, they, shall repair… the Church. Ephesians 3:20 says, ”Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” Peter was a failure, but he became a revived man. He pressed in. Press in with all you got and if you mess up; He will restore you. Ask for the fresh fire. Pray in the Spirit. I see divine appointments. Know your strategy. Have a word in season and bring the gospel.
Come, Holy Spirit. I break the spirit of delay over our lives. Heal the broken hearted and open the prison doors. Come for anyone mourning. Oil of joy come now. We take authority over the spirit of heaviness. We receive Your anointing tonight. Come, Holy Spirit.
The Lord wants to touch you and fall upon you. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. The Lord is restoring our soul. The Lord wants us to be strong without need in the battle and we are going to pray from that place.
America: Restoration of foundations in the old ruins that would be rebuilt. America was God’s idea. Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered. Psalm 68. Let Your word come forth. We claim that word for America. Scatter the enemy from our family. United as one; enemies are scattered. We scatter poverty, unforgiveness, sickness, unemployment, drought, homosexuality, abortion, fear, deception, depression, lack, division, confusion, divorce, racism, addiction and bitterness. Let God arise! God has a place for America.
Economy: Recovery and restoration. It’s time to make a stand. We declare our economy to be fit and strong. We reverse the debt clock. We pray for those manipulating the economy. You are the Ultimate Advisor. We pray You would come and advise us on our economy. We pray and declare America will be the leader of the world. We bind the spirit of confusion. Give us a new vision for our economy.
America/Elections: The Lord is making a distinction between those who are His. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. We say right now this is our house no one else tells us what to do. We speak over all Christians and we call them to confession. We speak that they will acknowledge You in their vote. We ask for Your choice in the elections. Help us to see the distinction between right and wrong.
Acts 1:8; 1 Sam. 30:8; Joel 2:19, 25, 28; Psalm 54:10, 82:1-2,6; 1 Chronicles 11:14; Nehemiah 4:13-15;
Prophetic Act: We marched silently around the American flag in the front of the sanctuary seven times and on the seventh time we made a loud shout to the Lord. Hebrew 11:30. Shout, for the Lord has given us this nation!
Tonight was a night of double up. Where one team missed it, the other would recover it.
We had clues about a man with a button-down shirt who was experiencing knee pain. We found him in a local store and we were able to declare God’s love and healing to him. He gave a testimony regarding his healing. We prayed for restoration for his relationship with his daughter.
The next encounter was with a woman who had a ponytail, which was a clue. We told her she was God’s treasure. She was broken-hearted and had just moved into a new neighborhood. She was lonely and had been crying out to God. She said she didn’t know she was God’s treasure. We found her in isle 23 where the pots and pans were located, which were our clues.
