Catch the Wave of Glory
Thanks for all your responses to our article, “God is not a Terrorist.” On Sunday, we addressed the prophetic season we are in. We highly encourage you to watch the message, “Can These Bones Live?”, here as we join together in harmony to pray for America in this hour.
We are set to catch a wave of recovery because we are in the season of outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit. We are people of faith. It’s time to fully engage with absolute confidence in the power of Christ and the certainty of God’s eternal promises in Scripture for those who believe. The Church is the hope of the world. Let’s take our place. Let’s catch the wave of His Spirit.
Anxieties about our natural world and the difficulties we find ourselves facing economically and culturally are, for the most part, the result of handing leadership to people who do not have the Spirit of God as their lamp. How we view our present challenges is important. Unfortunately, apprehension mixed with bad theology, historical ignorance, and lack of virtuous leadership have disheartened, immobilized, distracted and misdirected Christians with whom lie God’s initiative for good in our world.
Jesus is our apostle, prophet, evangelist, teacher, and shepherd. God anointed Him to go about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil (see Acts 10:38). Hopelessness in the face of challenge or weakness in response to the need for change denies the very nature of Him who has redeemed us and dwells within. Does it not say, “Greater He that is in you than he that is in the world” (1 Jn. 4:4).
Furthermore, we are commissioned as the frontline of empowered, spiritual vanguards in a battle not against persons of flesh and blood, but of real spiritual enemies with only one objective—to kill, steal, and destroy (see Jn. 10:10)?
So like Joshua did the day he met the pre-incarnate Christ before the stronghold of Jericho, you choose. Who’s side will you be on?
It’s On the Way
The signs that God is with us for good and to give us a future and a hope are many. They extend across a wide spectrum from dynamic, spiritual visitation in the lives of believers and church congregations, a renewal of corporate prayer with thanksgiving and supplication, to civic initiatives and secular reforms gaining ground in many regions of our nation.
Just this week, on the day we launched our prayer relay, a secular news story reported that history may look back and say June 1st was the day the national elections were decided. We believe it! There are things begin decided right now that will affect our children and grandchildren. There is a wave of God’s anointing being loosed across America in this hour. Let us get in harmony and catch the wave.
When Garrett McNamara broke the world record by surfing a massive, 90 foot wave, he was asked how he did it. He looked at the camera and said, “I didn’t fall off.” Many of you have been knocked off your board and tumbled in recent seasons. You may fee disqualified by your own shortcomings or past failures. The Lord is sending His angels to pull you out and put you back on board. This is the hour of grace and truth. This is the hour where He is calling every Christian to arise in destiny, purpose, and step into the strategic plans God has for you in this hour. The glory of the Lord is over you.
Poised for Victory
Our nation is poised on the edge of a great wave of glory. It is based on the faithfulness of our God and the awesome power of His grace. When the enemy comes, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard. Like Jehoshaphat, we come with our eyes focused on Him. This is our first prayer focus. God wants to do awesome things in this hour, let us welcome Him in our gates with humility and praise, and ride the wave He has for America.
God’s command to Joshua was “When you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him” (Josh. 6:5). The battle for Jericho was won as God’s people got in harmony with His word for the nation. The walls fell down as they gave a shout. And they triumphed as they responded in the time of God’s favor, going straight up to take the city.
In 2001 the Church worldwide received a major wake up call when Islamic fundamentalism unveiled its global plan for domination through terrorism. At that time, our Joshua, Jesus, sent out a strategic command. He told us that when we begin to see walls of spiritual strongholds in our cities and nation begin to crack and crumble we were to advance with the spiritual weapons of war and natural weapons for building and rebuilding with which our Captain and God has equipped us. We are hearing His call. It is time to shout, for the Lord is giving us our city and our nation. Now is the time—a time where opposition is revealing opportunity. Let’s catch the wave, and by the power of the Holy Spirit be the first in a generation to ride the wave of redemption and recovery all the way to shore. Let’s make history. That’s the heart of God.
Join us in the Let God Arise prayer relay by signing up here. Begin to prepare yourself to participate in our corporate 40 Day fast that will begin in September. Stay tuned in, in touch, and look for our prophetic perspective and response to present and future events in this coming year.
