SID: I really like some of your writing here. I mean, your life was over before it began. God’s not asking you to become something you’re not. He’s asking you to become who you already are. Now unpack that.

 

CLARICE: Now, if I’m going to unpack in four or five minutes, you have to understand from God’s perspective.

 

SID: Yes, but there’s no time in eternity. You just told me.

 

CLARICE: [speaking in tongues] God is a God of now. Everything is now, present tense. So say, out of every river has a mouth. Out of my belly flows rivers, rivers of love, life, joy, peace, healing, deliverance, rivers, rivers, rivers, and every drop, every word that I’m speaking is saying I must become a part of something greater than me. I must become, that which I already am. Because from God’s perspective it was over before it began. He always starts at the end. So if anybody asks you what comes first, the chicken or the egg, if you’re talking about God, it’s always the chicken because he always starts with things finished. And when you understand that, you begin to think with that. Then past and present have collided into the ever-present now, so you do not think about someday God is going to this and yesterday God did that, so I’m not left with anything here. I’m just muddling around. No, now is the time. Never has there ever been a day like this. This is the day the Lord has made and we will begin to decree, proclaim, establish and begin to speak. And right now, I want to tell you, there is someone that is listening here and you have an abscessed ear. And in the authority of the name of Jesus, [speaking in tongues], I open your ears with the infallible, inherent and awesome Word of God. Those that have cancer nodules on your throat, I bind that in Jesus’s name. A collapsed vocal cord, in the name of Jesus, I command you, wake up, wake up and proclaim the Glory of God. I speak to those that are bound by drugs and alcohol, and wrong relationships, be delivered in the authority of the name of Jesus. May the angels of the Lord pursue you, devil, on a dark and slippery path. A hole you’ve dug for them, I put you into it. Father, in Jesus’s name, thank you for power.

 

SID: Now, there are people that are watching right now and you feel hopeless. Everything is closing in on you. If that were you, what would you do right this minute, if you were that person?

 

CLARICE: If I was that person I would make a decision to agree with God. As quickly as you can, you can say, you can look at the symptoms, you can look at the circumstances, they are facts. Facts and truth are not the same thing. And as soon as we realize it is Satan that is the accuser of the brethren, but he can only have the power that you give him. All power in Heaven and Earth, [speaking in tongues], has been passed. It’s given, all there is. I asked the Lord, I need more power in my life. And he said, “Well I don’t have anymore.” One of the greatest things that keeps us from being healed is condemnation, self-hate, low self-esteem, unworthiness, agreeing with the reports of the Adamic nature instead of the new nature. So as we choose to agree with God, Jesus in you is the hope of glory. Christ as you is a manifestation of glory.

 

SID: What I want you to do is speak the Word over that person that’s hopeless right now.

 

CLARICE: Father, in the authority of the name of Jesus, we just thank you that you are a God of the impossible. Hope and despair, frustration, hearts that have been made heavy, awful things that have happened, Lord God, we thank you right now that you are the God of the hopeless, hurting people. And with mercy and compassion, we release into the atmosphere the antidote to the Antichrist, which is name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, the Word of God. We thank you, Lord God, that the great angels of God, ministering spirits sent forth from God to aid us with the heirs of salvation, take these words and let them be implanted into the heart of the hopeless. Hope deferred that has made your heart sick, I bind and break it in Jesus’s name. It’s time for you to decide. Ha, ha, ha, he, he, he, the joy of the Lord really lives in me. Strengthen yourself with the joy of the Lord.

 

SID: As believers, we need to become who you already are.

 

CLARICE: That’s right.

 

SID: Explain that.

 

CLARICE: Well from God’s perspective, you know, I was praising God. I said, O Lord, I just love you, and I do crazy praise. You know, I battle with the rattle of a tambourine. I jump around. I love God. I just love him. I’m addicted to him. So when I said to the Lord, he said, “Be transformed through the renewing of your mind, pulling down strongholds and pain imagination.” I said, “What’s a pain imagination?” He says, “Anything apart from my Word. It’s a luxury you can no longer have.” And so I thought, oh, will be transformed by renewing your mind. Where was my mind new? Will you tell me about that? Put R-E in front of it. And he said, “Well because you came from the heart of God.” He said, “Your DNA is a divine nature attitude and the whole heart of God was imparted to you and it’s coded into your being, and the more you fellowship the Holy Ghost you begin to realize you are already who you already are.” It’s already, we are sons of God. And sometimes we think of like I’m a verb, I’m a noun, I’m an adjective, I’m an adverb, and God says, “You are epistles being written by the hand of God.” So if I’m a noun in the body of Christ and all I do is hang around with nouns, I’ll never have a sentence. I’ll never be able to express the fullness, so I’ve got to have diversity. If I’m a noun, I have to have a verb, an adverb and an adjective, and I’ve got to find some dangling participles, and a preposition here and there, and then we put them together, and then our life begins to make sense. Together, we’ll glorify God and we were created for God’s Glory. So when we’re talking about it was over before it began, I am becoming who I already am, God saw it from the end and he says, “This is what I see. When I look at you, all I see is Jesus.” The scripture says, “See no man except in Christ.” And you decree it with the fruit of your lips. You begin, “I will judge you and I will you judge you up.” The spiritual man judges everything. So I judge you as a king, as a priest, as a prophet. I judge you as redeemed from the curse of the law of sin and death. I judge you up. I judge you healed and delivered, and prosperous because that’s what salvation is about.

 

SID: You know what I’m hearing you say? This is what I’m hearing you say. She’s actually saying it to you, and I want you to say it to those watching right now. Tell them they’re a champion. I like the way you say that.

 

CLARICE: Oh! Aww! Listen, champions live differently than normal, average people. You see, champions look at situations and circumstances and say, “Greater is he that is in he than he that is in this world.” So I began to chose to agree with God. I said to God, “What makes you happy?” He says, “I’m glad you asked. We become that which we adore.” So we are learning how the adoration of God brings us to a place that these are words that come from a champion spirit. We have come before God Almighty. You are kings with crowns upon your head, you are priests that bring the people to God and God to the people, and you are prophets that hear the Word of God and declare change the atmosphere. You may not ever be on this program, but there is something you’re on every day. You could be washing dishes, you can be at the office and all you have to do is open your mouth and say [speaking in tongues]. You begin to release the rivers of love and life, and you will change the world. Champions do. Agree with me. Say it with me, all of it: We are champions!

 

SID: We are champions!

 

CLARICE: Hallelujah.

BOB:  All right. Who else, who else had an animal come to your mind, you’re like oh, that’s really weird I don’t know if that could even be God. All right sir. What was it? What was it that you had? Yeah. An ostrich! I love that. Because they’re very lean meat. I like ostrich meat. No. (laughs) The Lord says you’re lean and you’re mean. You know. In fact I really do feel like you’ve gone through a season of time where there’s been like almost a leaning down of things in your life. In fact I see like a partnership that was in your life that it was like a three-stranded cord but it went to a two-stranded cord and I feel like the Lord has brought you through a season that’s called pruning and there was a key partnership in your life. I feel like it’s a business partnership that was pruned but you’re leaner and you’re meaner in this season. And I also feel like there were people you could have been mean to and you could have enforced just judgment against them but the Lord says because you didn’t just use an earthly legal system to enforce just judgment against people God’s going to release the judicial system of heaven in your life and God’s making up for some things. In fact I see these scales of justice over your head and I feel like that means that there were some even legal disputes that the enemy wanted to lure you into and to steal and to kill and to destroy. Am I making sense to you? What’s that? Sure. Only if it’s positive. (laughs) If you’re going to say I’m a false prophet, no you can’t. (laughs)

 

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

BOB:  Just kidding. Yeah, you can. Just kidding.

 

MAN:  We lived in Mint Hill North Carolina and we were renting this house to a police officer and one day he just, he had like five children, he just, one day he just left without paying us a cent. And I could have sued this police officer criminally but I went to another lawyer. I just let him settle for much, much less than he owed us. So I didn’t…

 

BOB:  So you didn’t enforce earthly justice but God’s releasing heavenly justice. Here’s what I hear the promise of the Lord saying to you. That you’re going to be restored much more than if you would have got earthly justice.

 

AUIENCE:  (CLAPPING)  Whooo!

 

BOB:  And here’s what else I hear, sir? Some of those things you did were to provide for your family, like a future for your family, it was kind of like this is going to be a family kind of heritage and history. But I feel like the Lord is saying there’s a blessing, more of a blessing for real estate coming on you in this season and I feel like the Lord’s going to release to you some multi-housing units, multi-unit housing units that you’re going to be able to be one that helps people during their times of need but it’s also going to be something that’s going to be a resource for your family. Here’s the other thing as I feel like the Lord said. You’ve been like a secret giver and you’ve even blessed the church and blessed ministries and sometimes you’ve seen them not be good stewards of the resources that God’s given you but God wants you to know you didn’t give it to a man or a ministry. You gave it to Him and He’s going to reward you for it.

 

AUDIENCE:  (APPLAUSE)

 

BOB:  Bless you, sir, okay? Bless you, sir. … you can just hand her the microphone that would be great. Can you just bless him? Raise your hand toward him and say “Let there be light.”

AUDIENCE:  Let there be light.

 

BOB:   Now it’s funny when I said earlier about when I was joking about Jesus had a donkey. Did anyone happen to get a donkey? All right. That’s good, sir. Can you stand up? Not that I’m saying it’s good that you got that. What I’m saying is that the Lord has given you such a persistent faith in your life. And I feel like you’re one who’s had persistence even when other people have given up. And I just hear the Lord say don’t become weary in well doing because if you do not faint you will receive the promise. And one of the things I feel like there’s some family members you’re praying for that seems like they’ve hardened their heart and hardened their head almost like a stubborn donkey you know who have hardened their head against God but God wants you to know that He’s going to take hearts of stone and turn them into hearts of flesh. And there’s like a, there’s like an anointing on sons and daughters to turn their hearts back to the father this year,        that God’s going to turn hearts back. The other thing is I feel like the Lord is saying He’s moving in a new way in the area of persistent prayer in the spiritual community that you’re a part of. There’s a, there’s a, there’s been a concerted prayer effort, there’s been like a season of prayer, almost like a 21 day fast or something that you’ve gone in to that the Lord is saying that the heavens they started out when you were praying they were like hard, like brass, stubborn but that God’s pouring out a blessing that cannot be contained. And I feel like that there’s a grace on your life to win a lot of people into the kingdom of God. People that are hard hearted and hard headed. That their hearts are going to turn toward God. And I asked the Lord where that was and I started to smell like ethnic cooking and I feel like the Lord says He’s going to set a table before you in the presence of your enemies and I saw you like feeding people that didn’t know the Lord and they came to know the Lord through the love of the Father, through the hospitality of the Father’s Table. This is going to be a year for evangelism that’s going to happen through relationships because of prayers that you’ve prayed, the blessings being poured out for the harvest that’s coming to your church and your spiritual community. In Jesus’ name. Amen? Amen. All right.

 

AUDIENCE:  (APPLAUSE)

BOB:  Do you know Jesus said to His disciples “Freely you have received, freely give.” Right? I believe that whenever we sew God’s voice to other people we receive, we reap God’s voice back to us. I was ministering to someone recently, and as we close this is what I’m going to pray is that you not only become receivers of God’s voice but you become givers of God’s voice. A young lady came to me and said I’m in a, I’m just in a difficult time of my life where I need to make decisions and I can’t hear from God. What’s wrong with me? And I said your problem is you’re normal. She said what do I do? And I said you know what I’d when I need to hear from God? I find someone else who needs to hear from God and I said this is what God wants to say to you. And I believe that as you sew God’s words to people you’re going to receive God’s word back to you. Would you stand with me and let me pray for you today? Jesus said in Matthew13 to His disciples: He said blessed are your eyes for they will see things prophets long to see.    Blessed are your ears for they’ll hear things that prophets long to hear. Blessed is your heart for they’ll understand things. And so Father God, I thank You that we were created in Your image and likeness. We were created to see what God sees and to say what God says. Oh God, I thank You for everyone watching, Lord, that their eyes are going to be open, that their ears are going to be open, that their hearts are going to be open and not only will they see themselves the way You see them but they’re going to see others and they’re going to say what You say. In Jesus’ name. Amen. Amen. God bless you guys!

 

AUDIENCE:    Whooo! Whooo! (CLAPPING)

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

ART:  And this guy goes the guy who healed me told me to carry my mat. You know I think that’s a little good authority. Right? You know? They said who was it? He said I don’t know because Jesus had slipped away into the crowd. So that gives us a clue that at this point in Jesus’ ministry John chapter 5 it’s early. He’s still flying under the radar. Remember He’s in Jerusalem. If He’d come out and healed every single person there He might have been crucified early instead of at the fullness of time after He had done everything He was sent here to do. Now there’s another aspect to this. He comes back to the man and He says do you believe in the Son of Man? Do you believe in the Messiah? And He has this conversation with him. Introduces Himself to him. This was a guy who had no faith. He didn’t know who Jesus was. He didn’t believe in Jesus being the Messiah. You know? Yet he was healed anyway because Jesus ministered to him. Now why didn’t Jesus heal all the other sick people who were there at the Pool of Bethesda? Number One, like we said, flying under the radar. But Number Two. I think this is really interesting. Just because He didn’t lay hands on everyone doesn’t mean He didn’t want everyone healed. I have people come to me and ask me if you really believe God wants to heal all and you’re seeing all these results like you say you’re seeing, which personally one on one I see a majority healed. I don’t see 100%. I see a lot of people I’ve laid hands on and I don’t see results. And it’s heartbreaking cause you care about people. But to just be real with you, you’ve going to press through the struggle and keep giving the burden to Jesus, not just carrying it for yourself. That’s Biblical. “Cast your burdens on Him for He cares for you.” It would be sin for me to carry the emotional weight of that but I still have to take responsibility and ask the Lord to change me. But now here we go. People ask me why don’t you just go and empty out a hospital? That’s a valid question and I tell them that. That’s a very fair question too. Cause they say if I could do what you could do I’d be at the hospital. I’d empty it out. And I’m like God bless you, you can do what I can do. Go to the hospital and empty it out!

 

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

ART:  Now the truth is I’m just one guy. Okay? Now we know the logistical problems. What hospital is going to let some random guy walk in and lay hands on every person in every bed? But if that was allowed logistically I’m just one guy. I would burn myself out. And honestly when would I meet your expectation? Because even if I did go in a hospital and empty it out you’d say why don’t you go to the next hospital? When would I ever satisfy your demands when the truth is I’ve got a calling and a mission on my life to train and equip the Church to do the same things which is even better because then all of you go in His name and now there’s millions of Jesus-like ministers of healing who can empty out hospitals because it’s not too much of a burden on one person. And here’s the beauty of this. The Pool of Bethesda, when you look on a map of Jerusalem, it’s just outside the Sheep Gate and just inside the Sheep Gate is Solomon’s Colonnade. Acts chapter 5: “Every single person who was brought to the believers was healed.” And remember John chapter 5, it said “Here a number of sick and injured people used to lie.” Why didn’t they lay there anymore? The Bible doesn’t expressly say it but I’d better believe if there’s a whole bunch of sick people laying there and somebody goes Hey, just the other side of this gate everybody’s getting healed. Guess what? Carry me, buddy! Get me over there! Right? I’m not sticking around here waiting for some angel that may never show up. It’s working over there.

 

AUDIENCE:  Right! (LAUGHTER)

 

ART:  Those Christians were clearing out the sick from Jerusalem. And that’s what I want to see. That’s my vision for the Church. See we are the body of Jesus in this world. Everyone who touched Jesus’ body was healed. And now you’re His body. Yes, physically He is in heaven at the right hand of the Father and He does have a physical body there but practically speaking according to First Corinthians 12 and Romans 12, various other scriptures, Ephesians 4, we are His body in this earth. I like to say that a head doesn’t just get from Point A to Point B on its own. Fair? Jesus has permanently submitted Himself to relationship with you. You see Jesus could appear to every single person on the planet right now at the drop of a hat and preach the gospel to them! But He doesn’t. Why? Because He commissioned you. Jesus could snap his fingers and heal every single person on the planet! But He doesn’t. Why? Because He commissioned you. That’s the beauty of following this Jesus. He’s the one who paid for it. He’s the one who wants it. And I guarantee He will do His work. It’s inevitable. Now some other thoughts. Other arguments that people have. Paul’s “thorn in the flesh.” That’s a great one. People always ask what was Paul’s thorn in the flesh? Now it’s a great question because there’s so much debate and confusion about it but it’s actually kind of a silly question     because the Bible actually says what Paul’s thorn in the flesh was. Did you know that? It says “There was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan sent to torment me.” Now that’s pretty clear. In fact the Greek word for messenger is “angelos” which is the word translated “angel,” an angel of Satan. And there’s only two other places that mention angels of Satan. Like the dragon and his angels were thrown down to the earth. Right? And I don’t remember what the other one is but only two places and it’s always referring to demons. So pretty simple. A demon of Satan was given to him. A messenger of Satan was given to him to keep him humble. Now what did that demon do? That’s the part that’s a debate. Okay? It was just a demon. Now some demons can cause a physical problems. Sure. I’ve seen a whole lot of that happen. But in this case I’ve walked through all these questions. You know some of the popular theories like Paul having an eye problem. I mean I’ve written about this extensively. There’s no way to make that work. In fact if you want to read a classic book that’ll teach you that, F.F. Bosworth wrote one and thoroughly dismantled the idea that Paul had an eye problem. It’s kind of ridiculous when you see the logic of it especially looking at the fullness of the New Testament. But, yeah, I personally believe that it was a demon inciting persecution everywhere Paul went. Cause he faced more persecution than anybody. In fact he said it was sent to buffet me and that word “buffet” means repeated blows [sounds of his fists hitting] as with a fist. Now furthermore some people question maybe this is my thorn in the flesh or something like that. I say, no. Throw that away. Because you know you’re telling me that you… Smith Wigglesworth. Actually if you know who he is. He was a minister back in the early 1900’s. And he… a woman came to him and said that and if I remember right he said something like are you so prideful that you think you’ve had such an abundance of revelations as Paul did that you need a thorn in the flesh? Be healed in Jesus name and the woman got healed. (laughs)

sidroth on January 17th, 2018

AUDIENCE:  Whooo!

 

BRIAN:  Daniel, he had insights. Unusual insights that we’re only now walking in to. The days of Daniel are upon us. The fulfillment of the prophetic writings. And Daniel said in the Last Days many will go here and there. Many will go here and there and revelation knowledge will increase and the books will be opened, 66 of them, and the spirit of revelation is going to come upon us and no longer will the word of God be a dead dry manual of doctrines that only load more guilt to the soul but we’re going to understand the sweet breath, the heavenly wind that inspired the writings of scripture to impart life, strength, glory and that every verse of the Bible becomes an on ramp into the heavenly realm as we beat the book. We enroll into the seminary of divine glory. In a true sense you could call a prophet someone who’s met with God because if you’ve not met with God you’re not, you don’t have anything to say. And we have to be, the church has to be fed, taught, led and blessed by men and women that have had amazing encounters. Dreams that set in course our destiny. Visitations that align us with heaven and get us out of our own thoughts and limitations and put us in the stream of revelation, the books of Bliss that we walk in that realm where it’s heaven, not man. Dust and deity kissed and it’s you. Dust and deity have kissed and now you are a human being operating in two realms at once. I’m a bi-locational minister.

 

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

BRIAN:  Every night I go to bed I consecrate my pillow. Make it a pillar. Take me. Speak to me. And if I’m too dense speak to my wife.

 

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

BRIAN:  Help her. It’s so amazing. When I’m not hearing from God the Lord busts me by giving my wife a word for me.      But I love being married to someone that loves Jesus and wants to hear His voice like I do. Throughout contemporary history men and women have had encounters with God. Life changing that altered the world. Our church fathers wrote, such as Augustine, Luther, Wesley. All of them had tremendous deep encounters with God that changed their lives. The writings of Jonathan Edwards, Count Zinzendorf,       Charles Finney, who is one of my favorite role models.    Maria Woodworth Etter, D.L. Moody and Billy Graham have all been marked with encounters. After, I hope it’s many, many years from now, but after his passing there will come out the supernatural realm that has been operating with Billy Graham. Psalm 42, I long to drink of you of God, drinking deeply from the streams of pleasure    flowing from Your presence. My longings overwhelm me for more of God. My soul thirsts, pants and longs for the living God. And then he says these words. I want to come and see the face of God. I want to give you a few points before we leave. You can have an encounter with God. You can expect it, ask for it, wait for it. Don’t believe that it won’t happen to you. Or let me say it positively. Believe that you’re in line for a visitation. And understand that it will come when you don’t expect it. You do not choose. He does. The second thing is you can have a supernatural encounter and initially not realize what’s going on. Two disciples were walking with Jesus on the road to Emmaus. And by the way it gives the name of one of them, the name Cleopas. It’s a woman. It’s never been translated properly. It was a woman. Some scholars believe it could have been Peter and his wife, but her name got mentioned. And what did they say about walking with Jesus? It said as He opened up the scriptures that their hearts… what was it?

 

AUDIENCE:  Burned.

 

BRIAN:  Burned within them. And they didn’t even realize. It’s 17 miles from Jerusalem to the present day city of Emmaus. It’s not really a city, it’s just a place there. I drove right by it. I asked our guide to point it out to me. And in our tour bus we really were kind of going the road to Emmaus. It was very fascinating. And Emmaus is a word that means “the burning place.” So on the way to the fire, the “glory fire,” their hearts began to burn and they didn’t even know it was Jesus! It’s like Jacob. God is in this place and I knew it not. You see God can be in this place and you’re not even aware of what’s going on! And the third, it will happen when you are ready. Your idea of when you’re ready and God’s idea of when you’re ready, there may be a slight difference. You’re idea of being ready is when you’ve prayed, fasted, no sin in your life, you drive right. You know you kissed your wife good morning and good night and you’ve done everything you’re supposed to do. You’ve been a good man, a good woman in the church, then you’re ready for His visitation. It’s the opposite. Jacob got it when he was running from God, running from his destiny. People can get it in lonely places. Some of the desperation that you may feel crowding into your heart right now is the preparation of heaven for your visitation. Bless the Lord for all that He’s bringing into your life. Praise Him. Praise your way up that stairway and expect the Lord to bless you, to enrich you. Jacob said the words “how astonishing and awe inspiring is this place.” I was taken to the Sea of Glass. It was the most amazing blue. Well let me back up and tell you how it happened. For years I was praying and I would see blue. I would go into blue. I’d close my eyes and I’d just see blue, this deep, deep blue. And I didn’t know what it was but I prayed my way through it. And then finally one day I realized this is like sapphire blue. This is like heavenly blue. So I decided to yield to this blue. I called it going into the blue. Until one day I actually went right and stood on the sapphire pavement. I saw the throne of God. It was far but near at the same time I can’t describe it. The heavenly activity that was sweet and terrifying at the same time. Seven torches burning on the sea of glass. And the Lord spoke my name and motioned me to come. He stood from the throne. I mean this is like heart-stopping. What am I here for? What’s is going to happen to me? Why am I summoned? And I stopped at a proper distance from the throne. And the Lord spoke to me. His lips were moving but I could not hear what He was saying. It wasn’t in a different language. I just like I couldn’t perceive what He was saying to me. He realized I was clueless so He called for an angel, a messenger. He wrote down on a scroll what He wanted me to hear and He handed it to the angel who gave it to me. As I opened up the scroll it said Philippians 1:21 “for to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” That was the message. It’s been my life message. Wouldn’t you like to have a scroll with your life message on it? You guy’s okay? You with me?

AUDIENCE:    (APPLAUSE)

 

KEVIN:  Hallelujah! So I just want to talk to you a just little bit today about God’s angels and understanding how you as born-again blood-bought believers in Yeshua, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you have the liberty to co-labor with God’s angels to release them to minister for those people who are in your sphere of influence and also in your own life. Amen?

 

AUDIENCE:  Amen.

 

KEVIN:  How many of you believe that you have an angel? Many of you. Praise God. You know Jesus teaching in the Book of Matthew he had them bring a little child to him and he said please do not offend one of these little children because I tell you the truth in heaven their angel always beholds the face of my Father. Now here’s a question for you. Raise your hand if you answer yes. How many of you were once were little children?

 

AUDIENCE:  (LAUGHTER)

 

KEVIN:   Hallelujah. Do you believe just because you grew up that you’ve lost your angel? The answer is no but what happens many times when we’re little children we have what I like to call Hebraic mindset. You know when we’re little children we just have that child-like faith. We just believe. But when we grow up our mind becomes westernized and we get over into a Greek mindset but just because you grew up does not mean that you’ve lost your angel that always beholds the face of your Father.  Hallelujah. Some people believe those are guardian angels and I believe we all have at least one angel and I want to share a little bit with you today about God’s angels and how you can have the grace and the authority not only to understand at their presence or discern them like we just did when we smelled that beautiful bouquet of heaven, hallelujah, thank You Jesus, but to learn how you can actually activate them or co-labor with them. How many of you would like to co-labor with God’s angels? Hallelujah! This is available to you today. Now before I go further let me say this to you. In the Book of Revelations 19:10 John the Apostle had a “seer” experience. God opened up his spiritual eyes and he began to see into the spiritual dynamics and he saw an angel and scripture says in Revelations 19:10 that he fell down at the feet, he said I fell down out the feet of this angel to worship him but the angel rebuked him and said see that you do not do that. Worship Jesus because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. Amen? Hallelujah. Who’s the person here that from time to time you have numbness and tingling in your hands and your hands get cold and you lose feeling in your hands? Is that person in the back? You want to come up here real quick if that’s okay. I just want to, I want to minister to you. And everybody I don’t want you to be a spectator. Just pray in the Spirit while she comes. Thank you, Father. Thank you Father for healing this precious saint right now in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Just one minute, brother. Is it the left hand or the right hand? Hold my hand. Here it comes. Steve, can you just assist me? Somebody just assist me. It’s okay. Here it comes. Thank You Holy Spirit. Father, we just thank You for touching this nerves in the shoulder, in the elbow, and in the hands and in the name of Jesus, Yeshua ha Mashiach I thank you for releasing a creative miracle into this hand, into this arm. It goes down your leg sometimes too, right? Yeah and it’s going to be healed in that hip and legs being healed right now in Jesus’ mighty name. You feel the heat in the, you feel the feeling coming back in that hand right now? Begin to move it. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Lord.

 

WOMAN #1:  I’ve got tingling and pain periodically. I fell on my hand and my wrist has been hurting so badly and the doctor won’t do surgery or anything.

 

KEVIN:  Move it around. Move it around. Is the pain gone? Hallelujah.

 

WOMAN #1:  And I have arthritis in my hand as well.

 

KEVIN:  Let me pray again. Thank You Jesus. Thank You for restoring her feeling. And thank You Father God for taking authority over this, we take authority over this pain. Thank You for healing this pain. We take authority over shock and trauma in Jesus’ name. Precious woman of God I want to ask you just to begin to move your hand. Does it feel like there’s any difference there now?

 

WOMAN #1:  There is!

 

KEVIN:  Can you say thank you Jesus?

 

WOMAN #1:  Thank You, Jesus.

 

AUDIENCE:  (CLAPPING)

 

KEVIN:  C’mon, give God a hand clap of praise.

 

AUDIENCE:  Whooo! (CLAPPING)

 

KEVIN:  Hallelujah. Now I’m just believing as we complete this session if you’ll just keep moving that hand that you’re going to be totally healed. Somebody give God praise.

 

AUDIENCE:  (CLAPPING)

 

KEVIN:  Brother, just put your hands up. Put your hands up to heaven right now. Father, in Jesus’ name I just release angels of healing and a miracle to touch that brother, to touch his arm and to touch his hand right now in Jesus’ mighty name. Father, we thank You for the call of God to preach the gospel the kingdom that’s upon his life and I thank You that his hand, the numbness in his hand is being healed right now. Somebody give God praise. Hallelujah.

 

AUDIENCE:  (CLAPPING)

 

KEVIN:  Let me tell you something. This realm of God’s kingdom is real. Amen? There was a time when I was taken up into heaven and I came to stand before Jesus and he assigned four angels. The second angel he assigned to me was an angel of healing and miracles. Let me just say to you that God has thousands, millions of angels of healing and miracles that he wants to assign to people who believe in Yeshua. Hallelujah. Does anybody in here believe in Yeshua?

AUDIENCE:  Yes. (CLAPPING)

DAVE: Yeah, that is actually a common experience and the first few times it happens to people if you have fear or anxiety you can stop the experience. If you allow the experience to continue what you’ll probably find is you’ll continue going up and continue going up and you’ll eventually end up in the throne room of heaven or someplace like that. I had an experience like that six months ago. I was just at that phase where I was falling asleep. I wasn’t fully asleep yet and that’s where this happens a lot. Spiritual travel very often happens early in the morning or late at night right as you’re either waking up or going to sleep. That’s when it most commonly happens. I’m not sure why. But I was starting to, I was just going to sleep and I could feel myself lifting out of my body and I knew where I was going. I was going to the heavens. I was going to heaven to get a scroll because I had listened to a teaching before I went to sleep by Mike Parsons who is a great teacher on this sort of thing. And Mike was talking about going to the heavens and getting scrolls of destiny, scrolls from the Lord to give you revelation about what you’re doing. So I was so excited listening to this message I literally gave my spirit permission to travel that night. Okay? So I go to sleep and I just told my spirit you have permission to go to the heavens and get whatever you wanna do and my spirit took off as soon as I was half asleep “shooom!” I went up into the heavens. I got some scrolls from the heavens. I came back down and when I woke in the morning I had another similar experience where I went into the heavens again. It’s common to have those experiences when you’re asleep or close to sleep or taking a nap because your soul is starting to kind of drop off and your spirit is now more in control of your body and what you’re doing. You don’t need to be afraid especially if it’s a praise and worship experience. I mean you’re probably gonna to end up in the throne room of heaven with angels worshipping the Lord which is nothing wrong with that. Questions?

 

WOMAN #2:  Hi. I had an experience two weeks ago where I had just fell asleep and I started having a dream with the likeness of my father. In the dream it was like a sexual perverted type of dream and I began… wanted to show my father love and as I started showing him love he started manifesting in the dream. And it got to the point where my father had actually turned into Satan. And I was rebuking him and then I woke up out of my sleep, got up, took my pillow and tossed it across the room. And started, it’s like Satan was literally in front of me in my room and I was just like how dare you, you know, come in my room and you know just rebuking and saying scriptures. So what… is that kind of like travelling in the spirit?

 

DAVE: Yeah. I don’t know if that’s a travelling in the spirit experience. It sounds more like you were having a direct confrontation with the demon or maybe Satan which manifested as… I mean familiar spirits often mimic our ancestors, relatives, people who have, especially ones who have passed on. People that we have an attraction to or an affinity for. A lot of times evil spirits will pretend to be those people in dreams and experiences to try to kind of get hooks in us. But you did the right thing. You rebuked it and confronted it. And you know get outa here in Jesus name, and that’s exactly what you should do. One more question. We got one back here.

 

WOMAN #3: Yeah. Frequently at night when I go to sleep I’ll see a large light and it’ll shrink down to a small light like I’m backing up through a tunnel…

 

DAVE: Put your mic by your mouth.

 

WOMAN #3: Did you hear any of that?

 

DAVE: Go ahead.

 

WOMAN #3: Frequently at night I see a large light when I close my eyes and it’ll go down to a smaller light like I’m backing up through a tunnel. Does that…

 

DAVE: Does anything happen after that?

 

WOMAN #3: No.

 

DAVE: You just see the light in the tunnel?

 

WOMAN #3: Yeah.

 

DAVE: I have no idea what that’s about. I have never heard of that. Interesting. Ask the Lord. One more question up here.

MAN:  Hi. A couple of years ago I had a pretty foundational experience for my faith. For like five days, three days I was fasting and I was asking the Lord I specifically felt like He wanted me to pursue Him on hearing His voice very clearly for prophetic purposes and for getting direction and things and then I woke up in the middle of the night out of a dream where someone was following me and like actually doing like voodoo rituals and things like that. Following me into rooms and I would see them out of the corner of my eye. When I woke up from the dream there was like I had… I remembered the time on the clock and there was a motion tracker on my phone I use for sleep so later I knew that this was actually something that happened. It wasn’t sleep paralysis. And I actually saw a physical like black cloud or a mist or something and there was like interaction and it was trying to pick me up out of my bed and things like that. I commanded it to leave but ever since then I’ve always had trouble. I never really broke that barrier of being able to very clearly and surely hear the voice of the Lord so what advice would you have for someone who had an experience like that?

 

DAVE: Okay. That is really a good example of a very common problem people have. You say sleep paralysis. Were you physically unable to move?

 

MAN:  No.

 

DAVE:  In part of the experience?

 

MAN: Part of the experience.

 

DAVE:  Part of the experience you got temporarily paralyzed.

 

MAN: Uh, huh.

 

DAVE:  Were you able to talk?

 

MAN: Um, I don’t know if it was fear or some kind of biological thing or…

 

DAVE: Were you able to talk or not?

 

MAN: I was not very able to talk.

 

DAVE: Okay. Right. So that’s really common. You’d be surprised how many people have these experiences especially when, and this is gonna help you. It happened to me. It’s happened to a lot of people I know. When you start to pursue God, when you start to hear His voice and you want to operate in the supernatural and you want to start healing and you want to start doing these things the first thing the enemy does is send one of these paralyzing spirits into your life to try to intimidate and frighten you. They usually either paralyze you physically. Take away your voice or both. If you speak the name of Jesus, even if think the name of Jesus this thing will leave. When I was… it happened to me I couldn’t talk and I was mumbling and I was trying to get Jesus out and I couldn’t. My wife woke up. She’s like, she knew it was a demon because I was “mmm” mumbling and rolling around. And so she started praying in tongues and commanding it to go and it left. This attack for some reason usually happens right when you start seeking God. So know this. The enemy knows what you’re doing and doesn’t like. So keep doing it.

MAN: Okay.

 

DAVE: So keep pursuing. You will hear the voice of God.

 

AUDIENCE: (CLAPPING)

 

DAVE: All right. Cool. You guys have been an awesome audience. Thank you for being here. I’m gonna pray a quick prayer if I may. I pray that God is gonna open your spiritual eyes, your spiritual ears and your other spiritual senses to receive His revelation and to grow in faith for the supernatural. I encourage you all to be patient in the process of learning to live a supernatural life. It is a process. Do not beat yourself up. Be patient. The Lord is going to work through you and mature you in the supernatural life. I’d also encourage you to be persistent. Don’t quit. Don’t get discouraged. Don’t give up. Those are all the lies of the enemy. The Lord wants you to live a supernatural life. It takes patience. Just trust that God is going to do what He promised. Step out of your comfort zone and expect the miraculous to happen when you do. In Jesus’ name I pray.

sidroth on December 19th, 2017

SID: And so Naim was telling me just during that break that he then got a further report on that woman with cancer. What did you find out?

 

NAIM: Yes. Later on, Sid, I got an email from the relative of the lady that I prayed for in the meeting. She said, “You didn’t know actually that she was dealing with stage 4 cancer, and what you sensed by the Holy Spirit was on point.” And she said, “I just wanted to let you know to confirm that when she went back to the doctor, the doctor had confirmed that she was totally healed.” They could not find it. It wasn’t in remission. In fact, she went to a second opinion because the first doctor, she wanted to make sure that this report was sure and it was accurate. And so she went to two other opinions and they confirmed that cancer was totally eradicated and destroyed out of her life.

 

SID: Wow. Now Hakeem, people look at both of you, and you look happy and everything. But you went through a season where your prayers were being blocked and you couldn’t figure out what was going on. So you went into prayer and fasting, and what did God show you?

 

HAKEEM: Well one of the things that God showed me was that there are spiritual blockages. There are spiritual hindrances that keep us from really moving towards our prophetic destiny. And so one of the patterns that I found was that whenever I get a prophetic word or a prophesy, or there’s a dream that God has placed in my heart, or there is a vision that I know that God has given me, usually right after that prophecy or after that dream, or after that vision what happens is there will be this sudden attack. The enemy will always, when there is a true prophecy or there is a true word, or something that you’re believing God, what happens is right after that word is released, there is an onslaught of attacks that is released. So I found myself in this cycle. I found myself in this pattern where I was finding myself like I couldn’t get ahead. I found myself three steps forward, and then next, I’m like six steps back. And so what God began to show me in the season of fasting and prayer is that there are enemies against your prophecy, there are enemies against your destiny. And so God reminded me of Paul when he charged his son Timothy, he said he had to remind him of the prophecy that was spoken over him, and he says, “Wage a good warfare.” In other words, we have to use our prophecy as a weapon against the enemy.

 

SID: How do you do that? How do you do exactly what he said? Use our prophecy as a weapon, I like that, against our enemy.

HAKEEM: Well it’s the Word of God. We know that the Word of God is a sure word of prophecy. Even if you never receive a prophecy or a Word, but you can believe God at his Word and you can use it as a sword and as a weapon against what the enemy is saying. So if the enemy says you will never fulfill your destiny, you have to now reverse it. There is a power of reversal in your mouth. We have to use our prophecy as a weapon and say, this is what God said, I believe what God said and it shall happen. The Bible says, “What we shall decree with him, it shall be established.”

 

SID: Okay, here’s what I want you to do right now. I want you to decree whatever God shows you for blessing over the people that are watching.

 

HAKEEM: Sure. We know that the decree is an official order by those who have legal authority. And I prophesy right now over those who are watching right now. My brother talked about the curse and he talked about the woman that had the cancer. But I decree and declare right now those who are sick mentally, those who are sick, physically sick, those who are financially and hindered, I prophesy and decree and declare that this is a season of breakthrough. I decree and declare that you shall arise from that sick bed. You shall take up your bed and walk. I decree that the Glory, the healing Glory of God’s power is being released right now. I decree and declare that you will no longer stay stuck. I decree and declare, and I command that you are made whole by the power and the Word that is spoken right now. I decree and declare that even I see this woman right now that’s been praying for her son who is in jail and the Lord is saying, today, he is going to be released. He said, I am vindicating, I’m releasing. I see the cell opening right now. I hear the Lord saying, “In this season that that jail cell is opening and I’m releasing my angels right now that is releasing your loved one.” I decree and declare that this will no longer be a season of setback. This will no longer be a season of delay. You will accelerate, I prophesy, I command that you will arise and be great in your generation.

 

NAIM: I even will say that even the Lord says that even where the Word where the King is there is power. And so as we decree and we establish that even over your life whatever situation that you’re in, whatever situation that looks like it is hopeless, we now decree and we just turn around everything. We prophesy that this is the season of your turnaround. We prophesy this is the season of your comeback. We remove every block, we remove every hurdle, we speak to every mountain, we decree that it be removed now in the name of Jesus. We decree and declare that we will overrule and override, and we veto every demonic legislation against your life, against your family, and we break every generational curse that has been spoken over your life, and we release it now in Jesus’s mighty name.

 

SID: Now, I’m going to tell you, the presence of God is so awesome on this set right now. All things are possible. When we come back there’s something that so few believers understand that is totally hindering the blessings of God and the destiny of God in your life. We’ll be right back.

sidroth on December 12th, 2017

SID: Hello. Sid Roth here. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. You know, most of us, we have this vision of God speaking to us with an audible voice like the Ten Commandments, and we can hear that booming voice. Well my guests say that we all should hear from God, but there are unexpected ways, it’s like we’re on AM and God’s on FM, and but it’s happening all around us. Like for instance, do you ever see a pattern of numbers, the same number over and over, and over? Do you hear the same name? Do you hear a scripture? Did you see an event that’s not supposed to be, but it was there? That could be God speaking to you. And do you know what else? Once you become aware of this you’re going to open up your hearing God like never before.

 

Is there a supernatural dimension, a world beyond the one we know? Is there life after death? Do angels exist? Can our dreams contain messages from Heaven? Can we tap into ancient secrets of the supernatural? Are healing miracles real? Sid Roth has spent over 35 years researching the strange world of the supernatural. Join Sid for this edition of It’s Supernatural.

 

SID: A couple of years ago you came to the United States, both of you, to do a show for us, and I invited both of you to be at our prayer meeting. And Holy Spirit picked one particular person out, it happened to be a manager in our office, and you started by asking a question: Do you  have any children? She said, “Yes, I have one.” And then you said, “But I see another child.” And she turned a color. Let me tell you way [red]. Because it’s not that she was ashamed that she was having a child, it was because she hadn’t told anyone, especially her boss. She wanted her boss to be the first, but you were the first.

 

ADAM: Yes, I put my foot in it.

 

SID: Now, I asked you at dinner last night about how you know these things and you told me there’s an angel that accompanies you, and sometimes he like leans on your shoulder. Explain that. What does that mean?

 

ADAM: That’s right. When I’m ministering at the pulpit, it can even happen when I’m having dinner as well, an angel leans on me, and what happens is that he leans on me and I can get pictures and images, moving pictures sometimes. I could spell out details about someone’s life, about their condition, their sickness, even their child, perhaps even the child’s name and the condition. And what happens is faith just crashes into the meeting and pretty much God releases the miraculous.

 

SID: Tell me about that. So that’s you. That’s good. You’re a prophet. You’re, the Bible says there’s fivefold ministers and you are a prophet. But what about me? What about you, just average people, [can we] know our destiny, know our purpose, our function, our calling, what we’re supposed to do?

 

ADAM: I believe everybody can have it if you’re hungry enough. We can all be prophetic and hear from God. But for me, God didn’t just wave a wand and I had this. I had to carve it out. There’s one thing to have the grace of God over your life and that’s free, but to fulfill the destiny can come with a price, and you just got to be hungry and passionate to fulfill the destiny of God, and if you ask, you receive.

SID: Adrian, you have opened up my world and I want you to open the world of those that are watching. Tell me some of the ways God speaks to us, and he doesn’t speak to us. He’s speaking to us all the time, and once the light bulb goes on you’re going to know. Tell me some of the ways.

 

ADRIAN: Before I tell you some of the ways, Sid, I believe that we’re all prophetic. We may not all be fivefold like Adam, but we all have a prophetic edge, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to enter the Kingdom, because it’s through revelation that we enter the Kingdom. But God speaks to us every day through numbers and sometimes those numbers may repeat themselves through names that we may see on a sign, on a bus or a truck, through a song that might bubble up within us, or through a line that’s coming as someone is speaking the news out. You know, there are so many ways. It might be a movie title or it might be a photograph in front of you, or a magazine that you’re reading, an article might jump out at you. There are so many words that God can speak. It may be a plant in your garden or a bird that comes and lands on that tree, but it does something that’s unusual, and you go, well that was unusual, it got my attention. What could God be speaking in that situation?

 

SID: But for most of us it, it’s like we’re on AM and the sign God is giving us is on FM, and we just, I think that if we’re just aware of this it’s going to make a profound difference.

 

ADRIAN: I believe that’s true. I believe that is true.

 

SID: This is so unusual. It would attract your attention. Tell me about, on the Russian beaches, there were thousands of giant snowballs. Some of them, I mean, they went from the size of a tennis ball to three feet in diameter. It covered 11 miles of beach. Now, there you go. That’s another, this never happened there before. I guess that’s one way God can get our attention when we see something that’s never happened before.

 

ADRIAN: Exactly. And that’s what drew my attention, Sid. As soon as I saw that at that moment, that is so unusual, that has be the voice of God, and particularly the time when it took place. It was the day after the United States Presidential Election. And so we understand from Scripture, Adam and I, that a ball is a projectile, and as a projectile, it’s something you can throw and you can catch. It’s a picture of words and a snowball can be code words. And so a beach is an interface. We believe that God is speaking through this incidence and saying we need to pray. It’s a warning that cold words don’t take place or cross over between America and Russia.

 

SID: I have seen the number of, in particular, you talk about seeing the same numbers reoccur. Since I’ve been a believer, I have seen the number “777.” Even on my Israeli passport it says “777.” When we come back, I want you guys to tell me what that means. Be right back.

KYNAN: Hello, hello, hello. I’m Kynan Bridges standing in for Sid Roth and welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. Our guest today hears the most precise secrets of God about himself and others. He has literally equipped thousands to do the same. Are you ready? I’m here with Shawn Bolz. And Shawn, the last time you were here you gave some of the most amazingly accurate words of God. I want us to show a clip of that right now.

 

[begin video]

 

SHAWN: I have one more user name. I never get user names, but I ask God for new information that I never get, and he gave me Terry Bishop 911. Is that a user name? Where is he? Terry Bishop, you’re working on the show and we’re getting you. Is this a user name you use?

Terry Bishop: That is my user name, Terry Bishop 911.

 

SHAWN: That’s amazing.

 

[end video]

 

KYNAN: The Son of God has raised you up to really be a bridge for so many of us to help others to developing their gift and to develop their sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. But it wasn’t always that way, was it?

 

SHAWN: I mean, I loved the prophetic from the time I was little. My parents raised us up in an environment like what’s God showing you, what’s God doing, but I never thought of myself as the teacher of the prophetic or somebody who’s going to help people get words of knowledge and understand this, and get clarity. It’s just something that along the journey I loved the fruit of it so much that I couldn’t help but say you guys got to do this. You guys got to hear God this way.

 

KYNAN: Wow. So you went from this kind of secure kind of reality just taking the risk, stepping out, being bold. You even gave words in front of 65,000 people at Azusa. Now, tell us about that.

 

SHAWN: It was just a living room, just a little, you know, God’s living room. You know, it was wild because I’ve done prophetic ministry and worked alone for so long, and I’ve only been on a platform to show people it’s possible. I don’t actually like talking a platform. I love teaching, I love inspiring people, but prophesying publically, it’s part of my behind the scenes life. So to do it in public in front of 65,000 people it was very intimidating. I even tried to get out of it at the beginning.

 

KYNAN: Wow.

 

SHAWN: I was like I don’t need to do this, guys. You’re going to do this.

 

KYNAN: So you mean to tell me that even today sometimes you still feel that trepidation. You still feel that.

 

SHAWN: Every time.

 

KYNAN: Every time.

 

SHAWN: Every time I take the platform I feel like I don’t want to do this.

 

KYNAN: So you don’t just have this fearless sort of boldness all the time.

 

SHAWN: If you watch any videos, because we post videos, sometimes our ministry posts videos because we want to show what a chicken I am and how God can still use me. And so there’s times where I’m going, really, it’s real, like what I’m saying is real. And people are going yeah, and I’m like I’m just discovering the reality as well. I think we have this image that we grow in our confidence and everything else, so why don’t we grow in our confidence when it comes to the supernatural. But the supernatural is dependent on our connection relationship with God.

 

KYNAN: Wow, that’s so good.

 

SHAWN: And so you should never feel like I got this. Although we should feel confident, we shouldn’t feel a sense of self-confidence.

 

KYNAN: Wow. Wow. So you called out people in that large crowd, 65,000 people. I mean, how was that? Did you know you were being accurate? Tell us about how that went.

 

SHAWN: No. The first couple I called out, it was the first of no names of a couple. It was funny, because their friends afterwards, I mean, they’re life-long friends, we didn’t know their middle names. Their first and middle names, a street she had grown up on, there is all this information about how many kids they have. They had just moved to Oregon and they didn’t tell their family yet, so a lot of their friends and family didn’t know they had moved. So I told their friends on national television they were doing this. This was a God thing. And they were just in so much shock that God knew them and used them as an example to millions of people who were watching, but also the 65,000 live to show them like I’m with you. I the Lord God am ever present, but I’m also manifesting my presence for you.

 

KYNAN: Wow. Wow. Let me ask the question that all of our viewers want to really know. Can everybody really flow words of knowledge or is it just for the super saints and the specially gift?

 

SHAWN: I am an example of why anybody can flow words of knowledge. I don’t have a birthmark on anywhere in my body that qualifies me. There’s no sign that I was born under. I think the reality is that First Corinthians 14 says, “Go after love like your life depended on it and eagerly desire prophecy.” And then the First Corinthians 14, it also talks about the process of prophecy and how when someone comes in who doesn’t know the Lord, I think it prophecies to [them when] the secrets of their heart are laid bare. Now these secrets aren’t necessarily things that other people who know them would know, but the fact that God knows them and the fact that the people in the room all of a sudden know them by supernatural revelation makes them say God is real, he loves me, cares about me. So for me, it’s not an issue of can we all get it. You asked if we can all get it, but will we? Will we go after love and prove love by prophecy.

 

KYNAN: Listen, God wants to show you secrets. The secret of the Lord is with them who fear him. When we come back we’re going to show you, Shawn is going to teach us a little bit more how to tap into the heart of God. We’ll be right back.

[MUSIC] AUDIENCE: [APPLAUSE]

 

DAVID HERNANDEZ: Well I truly do believe that the key to experiencing more of what God has for you is prayer. And I do believe that God is re-digging the wells in the Church and we’re going to move into a time of deeper things. How many of you in this place you say I want God to move in my prayer life?

 

AUDIENCE: Yes! Woo!

 

DAVID: God’s going to touch your life. He really is! And,

 

AUDIENCE: [APPLAUSE]

 

DAVID: But I want to talk to you on The Four Realms of Prayer. And this message when I say realms I’m not talking different dimensions and moving to different worlds. I’m talking about four realities of prayer. And when you understand these four realms you understand that categorically speaking ALL prayer will find itself under one of these four. Now there are many different facets of prayer. There’s praying in tongues, there’s praying in your mind, there is praying privately, there is praying corporately but everything, no matter what it is, can fall categorically speaking under these four realms. If you can understand these four as they pertain to all of prayer I believe you can receive breakthrough in your prayer life. I believe you’re going to hear the voice of God more clearly. You know we’ve kind of accepted just in the church world there’s this idea that the voice of God is not to be heard with clarity. And I know we know if I say how many believe you can hear the voice of God I get a resounding amen! Right? But the truth is that most people, most believers, when they talk about the voice of God they talk about it in a way that’s unclear. I’m still trying, I’m still working, I’m still waiting to hear God and we’ve accepted that it’s difficult to hear God. But you can hear the voice of God with such clarity that when He whispers in the Spirit you can hear him! You can hear the voice of God which such confidence that when He speaks everything within you says I know that’s Him! This is God speaking to me and you move on it by faith. And I’m talking about this kind of prayer life that can cultivate the voice of God. So the four different realms of prayer. I’m going to list then I’m going to go through them here. The first realm I’m going to talk about is requesting. This is the prayer request. The second one we’re going to be talking about is reverencing which is worship. And worship is an aspect of prayer because it’s communication with God. The third one is resisting which is spiritual warfare. And the fourth one, it doesn’t sound as mysterious but it is very much as much prayer is and that is reading. You read the Word. It’s prayer. And as you pray this way, as you enter into the deeper realms of the Spirit through prayer what’s going to happen is you’re going to hear the voice of God more clearly. The power of God is going to intensify on your life. Your witness, your evangelism’s going to transform. Why? Because it’s Holy Spirit empowered prayer! When I first began to seek the Lord as some of you may have heard in the interview, I don’t know how many of you watched that episode but if you haven’t check that out with Sid Roth on the It’s Supernatural episode. In that episode I talked about the season of my life that was a very different season for me and it’s a well that I still dig from today. In that season I began to seek the face of God and I’m telling you as an eleven year-old kid who just received Jesus I was passionate. I was fascinated with the person of Jesus. And I said Lord, everything in me has to know the depths and the riches that is Christ. And so I gave my all, my heart, my being to seek His face. And we talked about this experience I had where I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Where I had experienced something that was that something more that many believers look for. But I had made an ultimatum with God so I go in my room. Jesus says in Matthew chapter 6, verse 6 that when you pray you go away quietly. Close the door. Why? Number One: It’s so that there’s no distraction. Number Two: It’s so that God can reward you publicly for what you do privately. There’s something in what’s hidden and what’s exposed and what has power and what doesn’t. And so what God did for me in that season in my life was found in the moment where I said Lord, I’m not leaving this room until you touch me! I feel the anointing of the Holy Spirit when I started talking, how many when I started talking about that I sense His presence here?

 

AUDIENCE: Yes.

 

DAVID: And I said Lord Jesus. You know why? Because when I talk about it you say I want that and when you say you want that that desire draws Him closer because that desire is a form of worship. And so I was in the room and I shut the door and I said I’m not leaving Jesus until you touch my life, until something happens. And I remember I had my fan in my room was on because it got very warm in that room. My fan was on. My Bible was open. My light was on so I can read the Bible and I had music playing in the background, soft worship music. And so I had set the atmosphere and I was ready to do everything that I knew to do to seek the face of God. So I go in and I start praying and I remember I got going and I was excited. I was filled with zeal and I had made that ultimatum very clear. Lord, I’m not leaving until You touch me. And so I’m praying and I’m praying and I’m praying and one hour goes by and nothing happened. How many of you know when you’re digging a well every shovel full is dirt until you hit water?

 

AUDIENCE: [LAUGHTER]

 

DAVID: And so I’m digging and I’m saying Lord, I’m praying. I’m praying. I’m praying. And that first hour was so discouraging to me because often I would do that. I would say Lord, I’m going to pray for one hour. I would pray. I felt like heaven had invaded my life and I would look up and maybe on the clock ten minutes had gone by. And how many of you have experienced that?

 

AUDIENCE: All of us!

 

DAVID: It’s because that’s the flesh. It’s what I was doing was in the flesh. I was putting forth my effort. So the second hour goes by. I said okay. I’m going to reach for the more melancholy aspects of my emotion and I’m going to cry. I’m going to weep. I’m going to seek Him. And what we do here you see it’s we try to guilt God into a response.

 

AUDIENCE: [LAUGHTER]

 

DAVID: Lord, don’t You hear me? Don’t you see me? Don’t you love me? We say Lord, don’t you love me. Can’t you hear me and we say it because we’re trying to manipulate Him in a way that He can’t be manipulated. He doesn’t respond to that. Do you know when I get a call on my cell phone and the call starts going bad I’ll often tell the person on the other line I’ll say listen, you’re not coming in clear. The call is breaking up. And what do they start doing? Most of the time they start yelling so that I can hear them. I say no, no the problem is not the volume, it’s the connection.

 

AUDIENCE: [LAUGHTER]

DAVID: When you’re praying we try to exude emotion. We exert our effort with emotion. You’re raising the volume. The volume’s not the issue. It’s the connection. And so that second hour had gone by where I’m praying that way and guess what happened? Nothing! Then I reached for the more aggressive, the more, the more, the more spiritual. I had read books on spiritual warfare. I’m mean I’m telling you if there was an adjective I took that adjective, attached it to a demon and rebuked it!

 

AUDIENCE: [LAUGHTER]

 

DAVID: The spirit of this, the spirit of that, the spirit of this goes, the spirit of that goes! And I’m praying against all of the things I could think of praying against. I’m going back to when I was 5. Lord, if there was anything when I was 5 years old blocking me. I’m doing the generational deliverance, all of these different things that I knew to do and I had got aggressive and I got angry and I said I’m not going to be you know subdued. I’m not going to be held back in the name of Jesus! And it’s good to pray like that when it’s spirit-led but I initiated it.

 

AUDIENCE: Wow.

 

DAVID: So finally that third hour goes by and nothing happened. And now, I’ll be honest with you, I started to regret my ultimatum.

 

AUDIENCE: [LAUGHTER]

 

DAVID: The fourth hour comes. And then I got intellectual. I got theological. I start well maybe analyzing and assessing and I applied the frailty of human wisdom. And I said perhaps that will get, I’ll tell you this right now. If it were possible to enter the presence of God by emotion or human effort in that moment I would have entered. But it’s not. And I remember in that moment I looked at the clock and I realized how much time had gone by and I just started to weep. And tears were coming down my face and I said Jesus, I don’t know how to pray. Jesus, I don’t know what to do. See there’s no man or woman on earth no matter how anointed they are who knows their way into the presence of God. Only the Holy Spirit knows the way in.

 

AUDIENCE: That’s right.

 

DAVID: And so I said Lord, what do I do? I mean I was broken. All of my, you know why God will wait till all of your effort has been exhausted? You know why He’ll do that? Because often we’ll push, push, push, push for things to happen in our ministry, in our life, in our family, in our business. And we’re pushing for it to happen and it doesn’t happen. It’s because when the answer finally comes, when the miracle finally comes He wants you to know who deserves the glory!

 

AUDIENCE: Amen! That’s right! That’s right!
