Weekly Watch Focus: Christ is Risen! Easter Glory Shine Forth

March 25, 2016—Christ is risen; He is risen indeed! Proclaim the triumph and blessing of the risen Christ, the King of Glory, over our families, churches, cities, and nations of the earth. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess, Jesus is Lord. Pray His love, power, and mercy touch and transform hungry hearts everywhere.
Glory of the risen Christ, deliver us from every shadow of oppression, depression, infirmities, and generational curses. We lift our worship to you, heavenly Father, for the gift of Your son.
In the authority of the resurrected Christ, bind back the powers of anti-Christ and every spirit of the thief, robber, and destroyer. Confidently proclaim fresh waves of resurrection glory and victory to wash over our nation and the nations. Continuously praise and thank our risen Savior, Jesus Christ.

Rev. 1:5-8, “Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,’ says the Lord, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.’”

2 Tim. 2:8, “Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel.”

Rom. 8:11, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”

Matt 28:1-6, “Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. But the angel answered and said to the women, 'Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.'”

Pray for Brussels:

Pray for the people of Belgium as they deal with the horrible terror attacks at the Brussels airport and downtown metro stations. At least thirty-one people were killed and hundreds more were injured in bomb blasts this last Tuesday. Islamic terrorists with ISIS have claimed responsibility for the attacks. Pray for the grieving families and wounded survivors. Pray for the law enforcement, medical, and rescue services responding to this travesty.

Bonnie and I were in this same Brussels airport just a few months ago when we traveled to be the main speakers at the All Europe Full Gospel Businessmen’s Convention in Belgium. We received a very gracious letter of welcome to the event and nation from the King and Queen of Belgium. Belgium is a beautiful, historic land with ancient buildings and gracious welcoming people. The Belgiums were key allies of America during the Second World War, supporting American soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge over 70 years ago. Our hearts are with the people of Belgium during this time of loss. Send covering prayers from the Watch for Belgium and Europe.

The threat of Islamic terror attacks has increased across Europe. Major U.S. cities are on high alert for Islamic, jihadist terror attacks as well. Pray the Lord will expose every plot of terror. May the yoke of political correctness be lifted so information can be shared across borders more freely. Pray for safety in areas of large public gatherings. We appeal to heaven for the nations to have the will and wisdom to deal with these terrorists at the source. Bind back the spirit of anti-Christ that inspired these attacks. Release the covering of Psalm 91 over our cities.

Psalms 91:1-6, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.”
Psalms 2:9, “You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Ps. 27:2-5, “When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.”
