Worship opened the gates of heaven for the King of glory to enter. Psalm 24. Many received deliverance. Yeah God!!!!
Message: Jason Oberman and Guest
Jason: I see Aslan, from the movie Narnia, walking through the crowd tonight. I sense a spirit of freedom and courage. I hear Jesus saying, “Are you looking for Me? Look for Me.” Tonight, we have a divine appointment. The Watch angel is present. The wind of His Spirit came across me. The Lord hears your cry. He will never leave you or forsake you. He is present. Be in expectation to reach out.
2 Kings 2:19-22. Our nation is in a place of chaos right now. The Word of the Lord is present. Salt was used for trade in times past. Salt was equivalent to salary. Elisha took salt and deposited it into the lake. Giving released healing. There was a culture of generosity. John 3:16. There is a revolution of that coming to the Church.
Guest: Ephesians 4:12-13. The role of the Church is to equip the Body of Christ. What did the Apostle Paul mean?
Equipping represents setting a broken bone to wholeness. Setting a broken place in someone’s life. It has to be protected and kept safe. The bone is strong when you give it time to heal. 2 Corinthians 1. You need to come alongside these. We are made whole to make others whole.
Equipping also represents putting back into joint a displaced bone. We’re called to come along someone to help them put it back into place. We need to be sensitive to ongoing mending. When you mend a net, you restore its ability to catch fish.
You were born to run so you can launch into all He created you to do. He wants to use you to do it. We need to be made whole so we can do it better and better. While we prepare others, God is preparing us for ours.
Speak the truth in love. You have to step out on a limb. God will use others to reveal things about you. It’s not for exposure. God will reveal it for restoration. What can God entrust in you? There is an anointing here. Lock arms with Christ and be part of the launching.
Jason: Neil Armstrong made a mark on the earth. On July 20, 1969 he was the first man to walk on the moon. There is a saying: One small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. It seemed impossible. It was a journey. He trained to take that first step. Three days, three hours and thirty-six minutes to land, but a lifetime of their lives in preparation. This is about the journey we are on. You are on this hero’s journey.
Jeremiah 1:5. God has a reason for every one of us. We have been ordained and appointed. There is a reason for us to be here. The Lion wants to breathe on you tonight afresh. Acts 17:26. You’re not an accident. God isn’t surprised. He put us here to be light. Neither should we be surprised. We are being prepared for a great mission. We are on that launch. There was a moment when Jesus was born. There was a moment when the Israelites were released from Egypt. You were born now in the moment for success and not failure. God is in the midst of all. He doesn’t want you to have a false launch. We are training for reigning right now. Don’t be distracted by what’s going on. Receive it and embrace it.
The disciples were launched to the other side in the storm. We are storm warriors. We need to be adjusted to look at Jesus. When you respond in fear, fear is present. The fear must be chased out. Prepare to launch.
Ephesians 1:11. Jesus is a skilled surgeon. He is building the integrity of our rocket. It’s all good! Ephesians 1:22-23. I am the Church. Own your atmosphere. Speak, say, watch and declare. Don’t get caught up in the junk that’s out there. Release the authority. Ecclesiastes 3:1. Jesus preached, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, repent.” The Lord is releasing courage tonight.
Joseph the dreamer. Timing, wisdom and humility. Joseph tried to launch himself rather than letting God launch him. The Lord’s hand was upon him, but he was thrown in a pit and became a slave. The Lord is working in everything. God is too big for us to miss Him. Psalm 105:17-19. Whatever you dreamed… All that is true. Don’t be talked out of it by the dogs of doom. It caused Joseph’s heart to be for the purposes of God only. It was a setup. He, Joseph, was the key. One small step for him was a giant step for others.
Those things that have held you are falling off right now. Tonight, the Lord’s Word is true. He never leaves us nor forsakes us. Don’t be weary.
There is a place in our heart that has risen like a fence because of fear. The Lord wants to take us into a great place of liberty. Liberty releases liberality; in love, peace, joy, prayer and prophetic.
Matthew 14:53. Disappointment and offense can cause us to raise a fence between us and God. The Lord is here to hug us. The Holy Spirit is breaking off things we held. It’s a night of breakthrough and true liberty. Stuff that we held for years is falling off.
The Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!
Prayers were offered up for our Armed Forces and the 9-11 Heroes and their Families. We will never forget!
The team also prayed for America, Israel and for a fresh release of the Spirit of Evangelism with Signs, Wonders and Miracles following.
