Time to Pray, Seriously.

As I learn more about what is going on, I see it is not just mere stupidity. It is very serious. Deception. To enslave.
Please try to rouse yourself from sleep and start really praying. Pray what? Wheels off the chariots. Church arising, filled with Holy Spirit to the max. Pray for everyone around you, your family and everyone. Pray their eyes are opened. Pray they make Jesus their Lord and their Savior.
Then, I recommend you witness to them. Other kinds of teaching, until after being born again, might be fruitless. Listen to the leading of the Lord. Use your faith to get the gift of faith, to hear well, and for salvations.

Chariot Wheels Falling Off

We had difficulties with Zooming today.
So, I recorded the meeting, pretty much like it would have been had we met via Zoom.
This won’t stay up … gone now.

BTW, very happy that my theme has been verified prophetically. Other, bigger “men of God” have been referring to the chariot wheels coming off. Praise God .. So good to not only protect us but to speak to us… and consistently so. And so very important in this hour. Thank you, Lord!

We will have words and pix with the music from now on when using Zoom. Sorry for that lack before. BTW, discovered that our problems Sunday were because of a glitch that Zoom had. Oh my! on Sunday? Guess we had better pray for tech and for tech protection.

Hoping to be back live on Pentecost Sunday. That is May 31. Hope it will be a potluck party. Stay tuned for an announcement.
Then after that, hoping for personal evangelism.

SUNDAY APRIL 5TH Prayer Points, Sermon Summary, & Zoom Help

PRAYER POINTS
Please pray for our leaders, especially the President and Vice-President: that they make good decisions, have good counsel, and supernatural stamina
Let’s pray for the front line health care workers. Some are overworked because of the virus, almost all out of policy, and many are frightened. Many are without the supplies they need. Soon we will have many who have graduated without the full education that normally they would have had.
Let’s pray for each other. Each is undergoing their own challenges. Often we can pray in more faith for others.
Please add this seriously to your list: pray for the oversight of the Treasury. I have now had it confirmed that there has been an important change. Probably different things are intended by different people. Let’s pray that God’s will prevails. Really.

SERMON SUMMARY
Fly over the book of Zechariah : 8 visions, answer to deputation, and 4 chapters on the ultimate victory of God’s Kingdom. Amazing how there are layers of truth: true in Z’s day, true in Jesus time on earth, and true coming up.
Message for now: clearly “return to me.” God intends for our good, even in this time of trouble and shaking.
What we should do : seek God by spending at least 30 minutes a day quiet time. Scripture memory verse: Zec 4:6.
Focus on new understanding of the vision of Joshua, new garments. Joshua, the High Priest of that day and Zerubabel, the secular ruler of that day, served the Lord. So we, as 2 ennd-time companies serve both in the church and in secular vocations. We know about having filthy garments changed, and thoughts protected in a time of lots of confusion and deception.
Focus on the KIND of leadership Jesus, the ultimate Shepherd exerts in the entrance on a donkey, rather than a war horse.
Awesome that we have an important part in the grand drama of the ages. To do: look to Jesus, be kind, do our assignments. This we knew, but now endowed with Spirit and ultimate meaning.

ANNOUNCEMENTS
1. Service this Friday at 7:00p. See below for other options.
2. Not able at this time to post the sermon from Zoom. It is possible, but too much time consumption and not very good quality.
3. We are having connectivity issues. I have blazing fast speed and have never had issues until this week. It is clear at this point it is not merely one set of servers. So, let’s all be patient.
I will post the audio only of today’s service, if I can edit out the personal mentions (like who was there and who was not and why.) Let’s pray we are all back together eating well soon. Oops, not good quality and not so easy.

TUTORIAL:
If you come on Zoom, check your mic and speaker, either when you have the option in the entering process. Alternatively, if you in the meeting, notice the up arrow next to the mic symbol on the bar at the bottom of the screen.
Some of us have to select WHICH mic to use.
If you have low bandwidth, then select only audio and don’t try to do visual. If you have visual only, try typing. Notice the bar at the bottom. Notice there is a chat symbol. Select that. Then you will see a column on the right side for chat. Notice at the bottom of that column is a space to write in. Notice that you can write to everybody or to just one person.
If you have visual and are confused,can’t hear, want to agree or not, use sign language. But we should conquer Zoom soon. There are short videos, and good ones, on the Zoom site. There are more on Youtube.

Communion on Demand

HI yall.
Well, we are transitioning to be able to meet virtually, through technology. I’m learning and you are too, probably. Perry Stone says revival will come through the lense of a camera. I hope it does, especially for him. He just had thousands of youth watching a set of meetings that couldn’t be held at his building.

Online communion in normal times might not make sense, but it seems to make sense today. Here is the link for you to use. We will say we are meeting, if asynchronously. Be blessed; be encouraged. Overtake all. LOL

Ideas for Being/Having Church While Complying with Executive Order Not to Meeting in Large Groups

I’ve been thinking house church, not because something is great about houses and certainly not great to have no educated, dedicated leadership. Rather, I’ve been thinking that we need to focus on evangelism, discipleship, and leadership building rather than merely infra-structure. Looks now like many people might re-think how to do church precisely because they can’t use the large building they have. However, you all do have other infrastructure to use.

What will you do? Just heard that one church, because the pastor has the tech savvy is now online. He also has appointed leaders over sections of the congregation for helps, support, and accountability. Thus, everyone will be taken care of. Churches that have “small groups” can use that structure to be sure everyone is taken care of. Some small groups will have to fission. Pastoral staff can stay in touch with the small group leaders, supplying them with more material. Watch parties could arise.

There should particularly be some appointments to see after “widows and orphans” — in our culture, the elderly and the very poor. Some people can not work from home. Older people may have trouble with the restrictions. Please watch out for your congregation.

However, what about people down the block? On the one hand, I have a report that neighbors have already snitched on Christian groups, and called the police when it appeared that more than 10 people were meeting. This is really amazing since the executive order went in Friday at 2:30p and I am writing this Saturday 7:00p! Somebody was quick to turn Christians in. And in Texas. And in a fairly small town! At any rate, it is a good time to check on your family, friends, and neighbors to see if they are okay. My next door neighbors are members of a very large church nearby that couldn’t meet last Sunday. They could never fit under the 250 rule! So my neighbors joined the handful of people in my living room.

Now, their church probably thinks that this will be a 3 week interruption. Well the tech savvy pastor mentioned above hopes so too. I have no word from God on that. However, I know that in the natural, there is no reason to think so. The President mentioned August in his remarks. So, pastors, please go ahead and move on this now.

We are thankful for those who stream, and for those who have added ‘casts. There is a lot of word and worship available. It really is not hard to start. Facebook requires only an account, a camera and a microphone and you can cast. Streaming is better, but takes a bit more. Ask your sound man. Remember, nothing electronic is private, but Facebook perhaps the least of all.

A pastor friend of mine prophesied in January that this year would be a year of interruption, particularly of public school. that has happened. Now he is saying “reset.” Yes, I believe I heard that somewhere else. Churches who are mostly just shows and expect people to come just a couple of times a month, after 4 months may not find themselves with much congregation. However, on fire Christians will surely see this as a wake-up call and it will renew and revive them. Squashing meetings down to 10 will … we will see.

The most motivating thing I heard just now on my round of telephone calls, was a pastor who said he was spending his days in travailing prayer. Let’s do more praying and more listening to God! We prayed in repentance for the nation last week. Let’s pray in repentance for the church this week.

Day of Fasting and Prayer Today

Pastors Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda, All Nations Church in Fort Mill, SC, have declared today a day of fasting and prayer. (We realize that many people because of health condition can not fast food and water. Fast what you can. Maybe food. Maybe meat and sweet. Maybe television. Whatever the Lord leads.)

Weekly Watch Focus: Raise the Shield! Wield the Sword! Corporate Call to Pray and Fast

Battle Lines Are Drawn—

The assault is on public confidence because panic creates chaos and shuts down love.
The assault is on love because that’s who God is.
The assault is on the business community because it funds the work of God. The assault is on the FAITH of believers because we are the salt and light. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, “The Church is the only hope for the world.” We are set up for a massive display of God’s recovery!

We—the Church everywhere, believers on the earth—are the front line of defense and offense. Raise your shield and wield the sword of your word in agreement with God’s word in this moment.

Two things this week:

FAST

Following up with the President’s call and National Day of Prayer, we are calling you to participate in a day of fasting this Thursday, March 19. You may fast in any form you have grace for. We are asking everyone to participate. If you choose to fast food, some of all that stuff you may have packed into your cupboard will just go that much farther! For our ANC family local and abroad, we were going to “honor Pastor Bonnie” for her birthday coming up this Friday, March 20th. She asks that in lieu of gifts you join with her in the fast day this Thursday.

We are fasting according to Psalm 2:6-8: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.’”

PRAY

For America. Fast and pray for America’s victory in the full-fledged battle against the coronavirus outbreak. Lift up a concerted prayer for our nation to be hidden in the shadow of the Most High. Lift up the name of Jesus and the Lord’s banner of victory over this disease. Pray for the administrations on national, state, and local levels to effectively cooperate and collaborate. Pray they mobilize our best reach and resource to turn the tide of infection and begin national recovery of health to our citizenry and economy. Bind spirits of panic, isolation, greed, and the kind of “self preservation” that disregards concern for a neighbor as well as one’s self. Ask for America!

For Italy. She is the spiritual mother of the faith of Christians around the world for generations. She has been put on display globally as an epicenter of celebrating Christ, specifically the sacred beauty and power of His death on the cross through the Eucharist. Regardless of your theology or ours, putting Jesus on display through faith appropriated in His body and blood is the demonstration of the gospel: “Every time you do this you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes” (1 Cor. 11:26). It is the ultimate challenge to the kingdom of darkness and the kingdoms of this world. It is His “blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins…poured out for many…given for you!”

Italy is being crushed beneath the shadow of coronavirus. The infection rate has spiked, the healthcare system has been pressed beyond capacity and medical workers are now having to choose whom to save. Nearly a quarter of Italy’s population are octogenarians, the most vulnerable and highest risk for this infection.

In the midst of this crisis, we are also we are seeing the incredible love and resilience of the Italian people under lockdown quarantine out on their balconies filling their atmosphere with songs of love and solidarity for one another. Let’s join them, America.

Heartwarming Moments Quarantined Italians Sing Together from Balconies

The Italian Airforce gives a Big Emotional lift to their Nation.

Pray for supernatural turnaround. We lift up every aspect of Italy’s medical facilities and workers. Pray for the families being hit by this crisis, the governing agencies and decision makers, and their supply lines.

Bind fear and accusation.

Loose the consolation of the Holy Spirit and recovery of all that has been stolen from them as a people, as families, as a nation.

Pray for the Church and believers across the nation to be anointed with fresh healing power and testimony to proclaim the gospel in this hour of trouble.

Pray for the Vatican, Pope Francis, and Father Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household under the two previous popes and current Pope. We have had the joy of meeting Father Cantalamessa on several occasions. He is a wonderful vessel of joy and love who was filled with the Holy Spirit in the U.S. during the Charismatic Renewal of the 1970’s in which Derek Prince, our spiritual father and your spiritual grandfather, played such a significant role.

As you pray for Italy, thank the Lord for your New Testament:
· Apostle Paul’s “prison letters” written from Rome;
· Ephesians, the great “Church” anthem;
· Philippians, the affectionate brotherhood epistle;
· Colossians, the majestic ode to the Son King;
· Philemon, the appeal and plea for social justice and brotherly kindness.

CHANGE OF MEETING LOCATION

After some deliberation and prayer, it has been decided that we are going to switch to meeting at my house. This should take care of folks who need to not be in germ’s way and keep up appropriately private, etc. We had hoped to make this move in a few weeks anyway.

However, even though I do not live here alone and even though it is a safe neighborhood, I do not want to put the address on the internet. Please email me for the address. We meet at 9:30. Tommorrow we will have something like breakfast type refreshments. In future, we will attempt a potluck.

Oh, we have exciting times. I am very encouraged. Revival is upon us. HalleluJah.

Agenda: Did you know that Purim just happened? I think this is very prophetic in regard to current events. The President of the USA and Franklin Graham, and Pastor Mahesh Chavda have all asked us to join in the National Day of Prayer (of repentance on behalf of the nation and asking God’s mercy and help facing covid-19) and this we will do. We have not forgotten that we are in a series studying the Holy Spirit. So it will be a great morning.

Please make every effort to come. We are in the beginning days of this congregation and of a great move of God. You will want to say you were there. Indeed, you want to be here.

Entrance into Deep Prayer

Text for last Sunday was Psalm 100:1&2, and Psalm 95.
Pattern is enter into his gates with Thanksgiving. We thought a bit about thanksgiving, after we understood “gates.”
And into His courts with Praise. Once we understand Jesus’ work for us, we begin to praise Him. Praise is appropriate for his court.
That was noisy, but then in Ps 95:6, we get to quiet: worship. Deep worship is often not noisy. In deep worship, follwoing the chapter, we can better hear his voice, better move in obedience better see miracles, and we can enter into rest.
This sounds ho-hum? No! this is entrance into the deep things of God.

Prayer Meeting on Friday Evening

We have been on the quiet side. First, our Wednesday am women’s group started moving around to accommodate one we were trying to help. Then I was dealing with a family issue.  We are ready to stir up again. Particularly, I’ve been for a long time searching for a Friday night prayer meeting. Clearly, our nation needs prayer. It is time for us to join hands across denominations and pray. Well, if no one is going to do it, I am. Please contact me for address.

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENT: NOW PRAYING ON FACEBOOK, PROMOTING GOD’S KINGDOM AT 7:00PM

fyi: Lance Wallnau on the current situation. Let’s pray Jeremiah 49 with Lance. As one!

Lots more is coming.

BTW, every website gets a lot of spam. I notice this website has started to get spam, but of a particular character: occultic! We will take that as confirmation that we are making a difference. Derek Prince taught, as do his proteges, the Chavdas that such resistance is a time to rejoice. It means that the spirit realm sense God is planning great things. In any case, we believe that Jesus is Lord of all. Don’t you? Don’t you want that kind of God, the kind that lives, dies, and lives again for you?

Prayer Series Continued

We have now posted 4 times where I lead in prayer, posted on www.greatshalom.org, and on most podcast sites: iTunes, Blubrry, Sticher, for sure. Please let me know if you do not find it on Google Play or Spotify. Should be there, too, if recently.
