Prayer & Intercession – part 5
Prayer & Intercession – part 3
Intercessors, Major Change, Harvest Time
Prophet Bob Hawk shared God’s word to Colorado CWI from 10/14/21, which applies to the Landisville CWI body, too. He prophesied a major shift to the nation, and a major change and rearranging of the church. Harvest time has come. God’s people will become refreshed, renewed, and refocused. Their goal will be to do His purpose. This is preparation for the end-time church (the people). 2 Chronicles 7:14-16 (AMP). My watchmen (intercessors) take their place in the Spirit and spend time with God and stand and keep on standing. Expect the goodness of God. Good things are ahead of you. The things desired will come to pass. Is there a vision in your heart? Today is the day of breakthrough. Listen and obey what the Spirit of faith says. The water (the Word of God) is waiting for you to walk on it. The evidence will appear. What do you see and hear? Confusion is lifted off of you. You are called to take authority over the works of the devil. Prophet Bob then gave a word for Landisville CWI. I see a plow, a large bulldozer, preparing ways into new areas, which is prayer and praise being pushed by the apostolic power of the word of faith for the glory of God. My Spirit will lead you in the way you should go. Romans 8:14. The time has come to align with operations of grace. 2 Timothy 1:9. Many are called but few are chosen. Few choose to obey and do what is required to do in carrying it through. The time to shift our wills to His will is here. There is peace in the presence of God. Ephesians 2:13. Know the peace of the umpire (Holy Spirit) of your life. Walk in the peace of God. Colossians 3:15 (AMP). Praise will bring breakthrough in your lives. We are redeemed, and we are crucified with Christ. Identify your peace. John 14:27 (AMP). Show up, and He will show up. There is an apostolic call to this church. Be called and move. There will be new places to go. Let not your heart be troubled nor be afraid. Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed. The apostolic call is for churches to be raised up. Show up! Push this bulldozer, the apostolic call! There are new places with new faces to be raised up. John 16:33 (AMP). (Prophet Bob spoke words for the congregation.)
Sept 25, 2021
God wants to address heart issues. I have other people who love the Lord with all her heart, another being in the flesh or, their desires dominate. Are we The end time church of Jesus Christ? If this is the final chapter of the Age of grace how are we going to live it out? How are you gonna live the rest of your life? If this is the final Grace the church of Christ, how are we going to live it out? What is the main objective to be to be accomplished in the kingdom of God by us? Now are you willing to commit to His purpose to the fullest that you possibly can? Pleasing God will cause your flesh to suffer. Is your heart fixed on what God’s word on what He has spoken? It’s Kingdom that you are a part of, there is no lack. Don’t underestimate the Word of God. It’s not a time to be self deceived.
Room Table – Questions & Answers
Pastor Bob Hawk read out of Psalms 37:23. Preparation time is never waisted time. You got to wake up and understand that we have to take our authority. If we don’t pray and intercede we could loose our freedom to be able to meet in churches and worship the way we do. The sermon belongs to us as the church. Part of the grace is to take the influence. We got to take to the heart of God and pray things through. Prayer for Apostle Dale took place. Pastor Pat read out of Malachi 3:16-18. You don’t get promoted until you take the next step. Don’t minimize what God has call you to do. Prayer for Governor Wolf took place. Pastor Pat referenced Job 22:30. Man is a moral agent, mention by Apostle Dale. Karen read out of 1 Timothy 2 and 2 Thessalonians 2:10. 1 John 5 was referenced.
Apostle Dale Armstrong mentioned that He broke the bread for you. Jesus is alive. Apostle Dale called Allen up to tell the rest of his testimony on God’s healing. Apostle Dale asked, how much have we forgotten what God has done for us? Apostle Dale and Pastor Bob Hawk ministered to a young lady.There’s a rushing mighty river that will flow. There’s a place of freedom and liberty which, I will bring you into a place Where are the cares of the life and the cares that had surrounded you, the struggles, and pressures. Even the opinions of others will melt away. That which was is all changing though what used to be shall no longer be. But, this is a new day and a new hour. There has to be a new song. There is a banner of victory for those who will come in for those who are hungry. For those who are looking for that team, for those who are looking for that family, for those who are looking for the Camaraderie.
Ministered Word for Blake
Things are adjusting even right now with the thinking process of things you seen or dreamed. there is a greater measure that is available. In that measure there will be an increase for you to accomplish that what I have called you to do. Know that I’ve given you a mouth and I call it My mouthpiece. As you use your heart as you healed your entire being. You will see a transformation take place. A transformation and some would say that is not the one I knew. Something has happened and that’s not the man I knew. He has become one who sits at the feet of the master. He is speaking the words of the Lord. Blake has become another man. Nations will come and be changed
Pray For The Harvest
Pastor Bob Hawk mentioned that He has an assignment for us. I want you to know that some things are not going to make sense. Your footsteps are ordered by the the Lord. Are we going to take control or are we going to let the enemy take control? God wants to reveal His secretes and mysteries. Pastor Bob read out of Psalm 2:8 and 1 Timothy 2. Pray for all people and pray this way for kings ( president). This is good and pleasing to the the Lord. Pastor Bob read out of 2 Peter 3:9-10, Matthew 9:37-38, Luke 10, and Colossians 4:12. You got to find out His will. Don’t forget the backsliders and don’t forget about the carnal ones that are amongst you. Pastor on read out of Galatians 4:19, Romans 8:26, and Romans 12:1. If people will do the simplicity of the the Word of of God. The confusion will lift.
God Is Calling Young People
Pastor Bob Hawk gave a testimony of how the the Lord saved him from killing two people. I will say what I believe. You have to press into into God. The only reason is because of His Grace. The Lord mentioned to to Pastor Bob to stop working for for Him to start working with with Him. You got to find the ways of of God. The way to promotion is humility. Acts 2:14-17. Separation that God has. Don’t underestimate your calling young people. It’s being what you are catching. You can’t do it without being and staying full of the the Spirit.
I am going to start revealing secret things to children that will confound the wise and those that are walking at levels of pride in My body, I am going to start visiting them by the vision of the future events that will take place. If they will press into the relationship with Me, I will use them to release the revelation that I will reveal to them.You are going to carry this gospel into the nation. Some of you are going to be prayers and intercessors. Some of you are going to be the warriors on the frontline. Some of you are going to be ministers. some of you were going to be entrepreneurs that need to make it happen.Some of you are going to go to places like the government so that it does get happening.Don’t underestimate what God wants to do but, be in pursuit after him. You understand by the revelation of the Holy Spirit. The job is to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. Watching TBN isn’t going to get it done.God is going to release vision. Give Him all the praise honor and glory. In our last days, he’s going to pour out his Spirit.
Seedtime- It’s Harvest Season
God wants to bring increase to your understanding. You would walk in deception if you will be just a hearer and not a doer. This is a now time. You are the vehicle. Understand you have the ability to change the atmosphere. It is seed time. Who is going to plant the seed? Plsams 2:8 was read from. God did not give you the spirit of fear. When you are the sent one, He will show you His goodness. 2 Timothy 2:2-12, everything has changed except for Him. How many understatement what God is doing? Seed time is harvest time. Psalm 2:2, you got to get a hold of this verse. He has not given us a spirit of fear. You are the the Body of of Christ who has a message in the times of hopelessness. When we sow into something we are a part of it. God wants to increase our understanding. I want you to encourage my people to cut the concern off, cut the weight off, and to cut the fear off. How many understand what you are doing? So, if you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing understand He knows how to flip you right side up. So, that you can see clearly what He has for your life. You can’t be selfish anymore. His grace is sufficient for me. Phillipians 4:13 was read from. Walk in faith and not in fear. Faith always come the the Word of the the Lord.
Job 22:20-30 (Amplified Bible). Pray people into their calling. We need to show up in person. Job prayed for his friends. God wants us in His perfect will. He is holy. We must put away unrighteousness. The love of money is the root of all evil. Only God is to own and control you. Make the Almighty your gold and the Lord your precious silver treasure. Intercessors lift up their faces to God. You will fulfill your vows. We shall decide and declare a thing, and it shall be established for you. You must put a guard on our mouths. If you do not like the things in your life, change your heart and your mouth. The Word of God must be in your heart and in your mouth. You need the unction of the Holy Spirit. He lifts up and saves the humble person. He will even deliver the one for whom you intercede who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness and purity of your hands. You are free to do the will of God. Call people to the place of grace. The intercessor who will stand with clean hands and a pure heart will be dynamic. We are to exercise ourselves with a conscience void of offense (Acts 24:16). We have to choose not to be offended. Philippians 1:10 tells us to be without offense until the day of Christ. Psalm 119:165 says, Great peace have they who love the Word and nothing shall offend them. Psalm 24 is about the King of glory. The prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its working (James 5:13-16). We are to have clean hands and a pure heart, be righteous, and pray earnestly. If anyone among you strays from the truth and falls into error and another person brings him back to God (converts him), you save a soul from death. We have the ability to convert a sinner from death. The Lord hears the prayer of the righteous.
As Christ’s Representatives, We Need to Change
Matthew 16:13. God wants to show Himself strong on your behalf. It takes a yielded life, dependent on Him. It is up to the body of Christ to make a difference for this country. All of powers of hell will not prevail against the church. Where do we see the church in the earth today? Where are you individually as a part of the body? Where are we as a church in the workings of what Jesus is doing today? We are the temple of the living God. The Spirit of the living God lives in you. How are you functioning today? 1 Timothy 3:15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. This is who we are supposed to be, what the church is supposed to be. We are the household of faith. Judge yourself, where you are. We are to examine ourselves whether we are in faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). Christ is in you. Are you holding to your faith? Are you showing faith? Our lives are to be lived in relationship with the King of Glory. Glory means the revealed nature and manifestations of God. The glory of God and intimacy with God change us. We must change and be transformed to Christ in us. We represent Jesus on earth. Are people seeing Jesus in us? If you had known Me, you would have known the Father. He who has seen Jesus, has seen the Father (John 14:7). Can we say: When you’ve seen us, you’ve seen the Father? We need to change. We are to be imitators of our Father, walking in love (Ephesians 5:1, 2). We need to know God intimately, esteeming and delighting in one another. Selfishness is in the church, and it will keep us from expressing our love for the Father. We should be living our lives to glorify the Father. Are people experiencing the love of God when we show up? Do people think of us as faithful? Are we a sweet fragrance to people? We are called according to His purpose. We are predestined to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:26-30). To be conformed, we must be jointly formed and have corresponding moral qualities. Am I in agreement with what I know? If not, I need grace to change. Allow the change to happen to you, so you can resist Satan. I am transformed when I keep my eyes on Him. We present our bodies as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1, 2). We represent God. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds. We are to put on Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14). We must put Him on and keep Him on. If I want to walk in the Spirit, I cannot walk in the flesh. We need to clothe ourselves with the praises of His people. How much should we be thankful? We must have a rejoicing spirit. People should see the glory of God on His people. We put on the new man and put off the old one (Colossians 3:8). The glory of the Lord will change us. If you do not like your thoughts, repent and ask forgiveness (1 John 1:9). The church must abide in God (John 15:7). It is a lifestyle. We need to be alive with the life of God. We are under the control of the Holy God. Press in to know Him. God is raising up a reflection of Himself.
Retune Your Sensitivity
God wants to use CWI in God’s healing ministry. Expect God to use you in praying, healing, and giving words. It is harvest time. We all reap the harvest. We represent Jesus, not being ashamed of the Gospel. The Greater One lives in us. We are anointed. God crowns us. Be sensitive to His leadership. He still loves people. We must be yielded and willing. Faith comes by hearing the Word. We carry Jesus. We should reveal Him. We walk by faith. Faith pleases God. No devil can stop your doing God’s will. His name is above every other name. Let the glory of God shine through you. You have what it takes to change this nation. This is your appointed time. Stand up and do what you have not done before. Our nation needs us to show Jesus and the answer to all the problems. We are the answer, because we are the body of Christ. We carry the Spirit. Romans 8:26-30. Christians should reflect the love of Jesus. We should be like Jesus. He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Our assignment is to do the will of God for us. We were called to do what we cannot do in the natural. We are called to do the supernatural, because we are not of this world system. We are called according to His purpose, which is to get people saved. We are to be conformed to the image of His Son. This is His will. We are predestined, called, justified, glorified to do His way. The anointing comes from the head (Jesus). (Psalm 133:1). In the CWI “house” people should see a house of prayer, the generator and power house of intercession. Prayer will propel you into what He has prepared you for. This world needs to see the real Jesus in the church. We need each other. God is in us. Perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:14-18). We represent Jesus. He is love. We are to be in love. He who fears has not been made perfect in love. He is aligning us to conform us to Him. We are being made into His image. Where are we headed? We need to know our destination, so we can plan our journey. Cooperate with the vision of this house (CWI). We all must operate in the sensitivities. We have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren (1 John 3:14). God’s grace is enough. Do not hold back the goods to those who are in need. We are not alone. One broken link in the chain can stop everything. Love in deed and in truth. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and He knows all things. We must do it His way. Have the right attitude in what you do. Have a right heart, and give from a right heart. Repent! God wants us, individually and corporately, to clean up the church. Check up on your heart. Our hearts must be connected. Rightly divide the Word. We are desperate without Him. If our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. We ask. We receive, because we keep His commandments, obey, and follow His plan. Prayer makes a difference in a region. We need to know what we are called to do. We are possessed with the Holy Spirit. There are some things we need to clean up in our lives. Those things can cause us to lose our sensitivity. Meditate on the Word of God (1 Timothy 1). What is God saying to us? CWI’s assignment is to change the world. Do your part. The end (aim, purpose) of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith. All things are possible to those who believe. Together as one we are in agreement with Him. We will not settle for what the devil wants to do. We must come together as one, moving with sensitivity, and a pure heart. Jesus came into the world to save sinners. We are a pattern of mercy. Love never fails. Stay full of love. Paul tells Timothy, I want you to walk in victory and whatever God has called you to do (1 Timothy 1:15-18). The good warfare is having faith and a good conscience. We sometimes do not see the fulfillment of a prophecy, because we are in a war. We have to do our part. By ignoring their conscience, their faith has shipwrecked. An exercise for us to do: Acts 24:16 Say: “I strive to always have a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” Other Scriptures: Titus 1:15; Romans 9:1; Psalm 139:24; 26; Mark 4:9. We need to hear the Holy Spirit, but we will not hear Him if we have a polluted conscience or if we are distracted. What stops the sensitivity is offense. What deep things are in me? (There were words about an umbrella that is being expanded over this (CWI) house; increased and changed influence; higher level of flow of revelation; dimension of truth being released to open hearts; price that comes with responsibility; more things to be responsible for; watchmen on the wall; the voice of authority will increase with a new level of power and demonstration; your words will carry more weight than they did in the past; things will change many times and almost immediately, like speaking to the tree or mountain; the tongue’s power is for blessing or curse; God has held back because of His mercy when we have cursed. We become responsible because of what He has shown us. Watch your words. Hold your tongue, if you need to. Out of your bellies will flow rivers of living water upon the people. His life will spring forth from our lips. The authority has changed. The anointing has risen. Speak to the atmosphere. Speak to the things that distract and hold back. Use your voice to be heard, in faith and authority. I will take you into the place of the dream, and when you wake, it will be as though you have already done it. Walk it out one day at a time. Release and don’t hold back the words I lay within your heart. Bring forth My blessing and speak My Word over the circumstances over this region. My Word will prevail, and it will not fail. You’ve know that I would confirm My Word. It will accomplish what I please. There are some things that I please to do. There are some changes that must come to pass. Prepare yourselves to be a voice to speak the things that will bring change and bring in the harvest.) With responsibility comes authority. (There were personal words: a relationship that has been going through things- pain, destruction; God is healing that. Fear because of pain in your body; that is not the truth; put it in its place; you don’t have the spirit of intimidation; the pain and inflammation is a strategy to get you to doubt; you will see the hand of My power in this hour; what which was on your family will not come on you. More children in this hour; prepare yourselves to teach and minister; they won’t know anything; to help their families to raise My children. Intercessors: believe for a harvest of children; they will watch how you raise your children. Lady concerned about her husband’s well-being; God is working underneath the natural; God is still flowing and showing who He is; God will take care of the situation and give you your heart’s desire; don’t underestimate what I can do if you will be obedient to Me to do what God shows you to do, God will be able to take care of your front door, because you watch God’s back door. A couple is to get ready for another child; make the adjustments in your heart; it’s the season and time for new life to come; prepare; be open and willing because it’s going to come.) A pure heart, a clean conscience, and sincere faith. Pastor Syd: The more you wait on Him, the faster He can accomplish what He wants.
Four speakers – Monday evening – Jan 18
Pastor Syd (Hearing and Listening for God’s Spirit’s Leading): Isaiah 50:4, 5. We need open ears to hear what the Lord is saying. Pastor Syd told of how he stood in faith to hear what the Holy Spirit wanted him to do concerning a school for his son, but no answer was coming. He asked the Lord about it, and he heard all the word curses he had spoken against school when he was a child. He immediately repented and put the blood of Jesus over those he had cursed. Immediately He gave him the name of the school and the first grade teacher, and so he knew which was God’s choice. In Mark 4:9 Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” This was the Parable of the Sower. Mark 4:22 tells about the hidden and revealed things, and also says in verse 23, “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” We have to pay attention to what we hear. He will show you more if you recognize that the Lord is speaking to you. Then be careful how you hear. We need God’s Spirit to know His hidden wisdom (1 Corinthians 2:6-3:3). He has revealed the hidden things of what He has prepared for us. The deep things are the things we need to develop and cultivate. The natural mind does not receive the things of the Spirit of God. We have the mind of Christ. Paul tired to speak of spiritual things to the people, but they were too carnal to receive them.
Bob Hawk gave a word about shifting, preparation, an awakening, a stirring within us, removing weights, running with new shoes and with the Word. This is a new day and hour of God’s power.
Rocky Veach: A great thing is ahead of us. There is preparation. Rocky shared how one month after he was born-again, the Lord showed him a photograph and said that she was his wife. Expect to hear. Expect Him to surprise you. Expect Him to speak to you. Put yourself in a position to hear. He said that 2016 is “The Year of the Angler”. Put your line with a big hook in the water and let the Lord give you a big catch, some big fish. Jesus used parables because the ones who do not have a heart to hear, will not hear. Parables bypassed the natural mind and were meant to go to the heart. We are open to subliminal things, but open yourselves to the Word and hear what God has to say.
Ron Cohn: Secrets. Hearing. Changing. We should hear the secrets of God and then change. The secret things belong to the Lord our God (Deuteronomy 29:29). Everyday God does something to us, for us, and through us. He shared about paying attention to God connections, like seeing “Rocky” on a TV in a business he was in the same day he was going to meet Rocky Veach for the first time. The body of Christ needs to be ready to hear God’s revelations. Some things God reveals to you are never to be shared, if people are not ready to hear them. There is an alignment of heaven and earth. Ron shared about a “God meeting” with a young man at the gas station and how he knows that his obedience caused that man’s life to be forever changed. Are you willing to pay the price to get God’s secrets? To do that you must cut some things off and consecrate yourself. When God’s secrets are given to a person, they become revelations. God does not hide things from us but for us. In Daniel1:20 Daniel and the three other Hebrews were willing to pay the price and were ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers. God reveals secrets (Daniel 2:21, 28, 29). Ron shared four recent occurrences, such as words from God and open visions that he was to share with people. Can God trust you with His secrets? Will you be willing to pay the price? God knows what is in the darkness. God has His own noise cancellation system. It is not praise and worship. It is a joyful noise.
Prophetic Conference – Feb 5
We are to attend to His words for they are life and health (Proverbs 4:20-24). Sin stops us from moving forward with God. Anything that we do not operate in faith is sin. There is a place where we can be that we soar above what is happening. We have the mind of Christ. We trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not to our own understanding. We acknowledge Him in all our ways, and He shall direct our paths. God loves you and have directed your course, but you must be quiet so you can be led by Him. (Prophet Bob and Ron Cohn ministered to Laura and Peter Andrews and Jon Fike.) The prayer of agreement is powerful. You should have a spiritual covenant partner, if you do not have a marriage covenant partner. The Word and the Spirit together work unity.
Prophetic Conference – Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom – Feb 4
There are three keys for navigating with victory: knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Daniel 2:1,19. God gives wisdom to the wise, and He gives knowledge to those who have understanding. You are important to the Body of Christ. Prophet Bob shared how his finger “exploded” when he jammed it on frozen logs. That finger hurt and took his attention. We hurt as a body when a member hurts. God is bringing unity to the church. Open up your heart. Proverbs 9:10 says the knowledge of God is understanding. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. You have to press in. The church has the commission of going to all parts of the world. We are to exhort, edify, and comfort. God wants to increase the insight in us. We are to have boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus(Hebrews 10:19-25). When we take care of others, He takes care of us. We are to be provokers of love and good works, laying down our lives by prayer, getting wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. The way of the Spirit is life. Think of ways to motivate one another to love and good works. We should bring influence into this area. When revival hits, every devil manifests. We are about to slip into some new things. You have to move. Call out for knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. It is harvest time! Your assignment: Get creative in your thinking and ask yourself, “What is the gift in that person?” (Perry Miller was spoken over and then anointed for prophetic ministry.)
Working With The Prophetic Word
Do things with His Word, not your own. We know in part, so we need the ministry gifts in others (1 Corinthians 13:9). It’s up to you to get the rest of the pieces of the puzzle and to walk out His way. Stay close to Jesus, keeping faith and patience so you get the rest of the word. You become a different person when you’re walking in the anointing and in His calling. What hinders us from fulfillment of a dream, vision, or word? #1 Unbelief. #2 Pride. #3 Impatience. #4 Deception. #5 Negligence. #6 Procrastination #7 Slothfulness #8 Disobedience. #9 Selfishness. #10 Fear. #11 Quitting. #12 Operating in two minds. #13 Lack of knowledge. #14 Fleshly-led, rather being led by the Holy Spirit. #15 Sin. Don’t stagger at the promise through unbelief (Romans 4:17-19).
Working With the Prophetic Word
1 Timothy 1:18-20 says that some people reject faith and good conscience and become shipwrecked. If you are sitting on a prophetic word, do what you need to do. Know God and rightly divide the Word so you can discern what the prophetic word is. There is a birthing process. Fight with the Word. Resist fear, because it takes you out of the place of faith. Know who your enemy is. Hang onto your faith and keep a clear conscience. Flee some things and pursue and fight for your faith (1 Timothy 6:11; 2 Timothy 4:7), pull down strongholds daily (2 Corinthians 10:4-5), and endure hardships (2 Timothy 2:3-4). Receive the word you’ve been given and operate like it’s true. Love from a pure heart and good conscience (1 Timothy 1:5). Don’t put more stock in “a word” than the Word of God. War with the Word of God. You have the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:20, 27). As you yield to God, He can download to you. The Holy Spirit will teach you if you abide in Him. Live in a relationship with Him. What is the proper response to prophecy? #1 Discern so you can reject or receive the word. #2 Faith. #3 Obedience. #4 Patience. #5 Humility (Submission to God’s Spirit). #6 Meekness. #7 Submission to His lordship.
Working With the Prophetic Word
1 Timothy 1. There is a season of releasing things. Sometimes you feel like you are sitting on eggs until they hatch. Giving God control is about trusting and submitting. When releasing a word to a person, make sure that the person is ready to hear what you have to say. Prophecy is what is in the heart of God. You can’t compare your faith with others’. Live out your life in relationship, not in your gifting, and don’t get so busy that you forget your faith. There are prophetic visions, dreams, and words in you. Are you practically doing all you can in that? Sometimes you have to let go in order to step into what He has called you to. Get rid of rejection, shame, and pain. Romans 4:14-16. There’s a level of faith that comes. We prophesy in part, and then we get into God’s presence. There’s a period of separation and preparation. God’s Word is a seed and will prosper in your heart if you allow it. Deal with the weeds. If you are getting into confusion it will not come to pass. God wants to use everyone. If you do not do what to do you know to do, you will be stuck.
The Anointing to Flourish
Texts: Psalm 23:1-5; Psalm 92:4-10; 1 John 2:20. God has prepared a table before us in the presence of our enemy (Satan), and He anoints our heads with oil, so that our cup runs over. We have an impartation of anointing that needs to go to others. There is a greater measure of anointing available, through communion in His presence. It’s time to receive a fresh anointing. We carry the anointing. We have the power and authority to take back what Satan has stolen. We as the church need to be doing what God is doing and see and hear with a fresh anointing. There is a shift, and there are many adversaries, but the greater One is in us. Get back to your first love, repent and go to Him so He can anoint you with fresh oil. You can know the strategies of the enemy and can bind and loose, declare and decree. This house must be a house of intercession.
Being People With a Different Spirit
(There was an anointing service for Brian and Jen Rohrer.) We carry the blood and power of Jesus Christ. God wants to do something here. He is a God of increase – in demonstration of love, prayer, intercession, revelation, and manifestation. There are things God wants to release, and we are carriers of revival, but we must seek His face and be quiet to hear and then obey His voice. He is looking for people of a different spirit. Let Jesus plan your day, every day. Your listening should be acted upon. Do you intend to do what you learn in the Word? (Proverbs 16:20) Some people are afraid to put faith to what they say because they don’t think it will happen. You should choose to be faithful, even when you don’t have the feeling. You can choose to seek Him, give your life to Him, be obedient, tithe, forgive, etc. God promised to give the Israelites the Promised Land, but only Caleb and Joshua believed what He said and that they would be able to overtake it. (Numbers 13:1-2, 30; 14:8, 24) Caleb had a different spirit in him. If you don’t operate by the faith that you have, your faith is dead. If you aren’t where you need to be, repent and do the will of God now. Abraham and Sarah had to do their part of the promise. (Romans 4:17-18) You are anointed and have an assignment to reap the harvest, whether by invading schools or government with the Gospel. You are well-able to bring in the harvest and bring change to this country. Psalm 112 tells us that you don’t need to be afraid of evil tidings. Choose to be full of the Holy Spirit. The harvest field is here now. Go into His presence in intercession. Obey the voice of the Lord and blessings will overtake you. (Deuteronomy 28:1-2) Know that God loves and takes care of you. Get in alignment to receive. Believe what God has said and have a different spirit, taking Him at His Word. (Prophet Bob gave several words.)
Prophetic Conference – Developing That Which Is In You
Text: 2 Peter 1:3-10 (8). We were born in the image of God. We need to be changed like never before. God wants the image and life of Jesus Christ to radiate from us and from every church. This takes repentance for everyone. Lay aside what trips you up and put on the new spiritual self. Open up your heart to receive and be a doer of the Word. Our assignment is to have and be abounding in these things that are added to faith: virtue (moral knowledge), knowledge, self-control, perseverance (patient endurance), godliness, brotherly kindness (Christian affection), love. Having these things added to our faith will keep us from being deceived and will bring life, godliness, exceedingly great and precious promises. We are called to reflect Jesus. We don’t have to be given to lust. This is a time when many people are deceived, compromising, lulled to sleep, and thinking they’re doing right, when really they’re doing wrong. We are to pursue God diligently like a man pursuing the woman he wanted for his wife. Make a commitment to be more productive than ever before. What is God convicting you of? Is it self-control or patience or love? Your attitude affects the atmosphere around you, either for the negative or the positive. The challenge for the church is to develop what is in each person. Develop means to cause to grow, mature, advance, set forth, make visible and manifest, and to create or produce by effort over time. God wants to expand His Body in numbers, power, and authority and to equip us with more to overcome our weaknesses.
Shaking in His Presence
We are to worship God by worshiping Him with holy fear and awe (Heb. 12:25-29). We must live in His presence. His joy is our strength. The kingdom of God is within us, and everything else will shake and go away. Those who despise the Word will be destroyed, but those who fear it will be rewarded (Prov. 13:13). The church must be strong in the power of the Lord. We need to hear the Word and to do it. Only you can allow the Word to renew your mind. Put action to what you believe, and do what you’re called to do. Do we put importance on the Word, especially what we’ve heard over and over again? Ps. 19:7-11 says that we have been warned. There is danger ahead, and we need to know how to go forward. James 1:19-25 is a compelling and needed teaching for us to apply. The Word is powerful (Heb. 4:23). We can make a change in this nation, if we are doers, and if we don’t put up with what the devil is doing. Are you participating in what God has told you to do? Are you waiting for God to move when it’s your move? It is critical for us to live by the Spirit. There is a Miracle-Worker (Jesus Christ) inside of you. If we aren’t doing the Word we know, we are self-deceived. Walk in truth. Examine yourself to see if you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruit of it (2 Cor. 13:5). If we live in the present, He will constantly change us. Are you walking in the faith?
Preparation for His Presence Part 2
Prophet Bob ministered an impartation to those who have an evangelistic call on their lives. Text: 1 Peter 4:12-19. We are blessed if we suffer reproach for the name of Christ. Verse 18 says “…the righteous one is saved with difficulty”. We must make a change in the compromising church in America. Judgment begins in the house of the Lord. We need to know Jesus Christ (Phil. 3:10). There are many who go by the broad way, but few take the narrow and difficult way to life (Matthew 7:13-20). There are many false prophets, and we need to know them by what they produce. The Word strongly states that every tree not bearing good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Even people who have done wonders won’t be with Him, because they didn’t know Jesus Christ. We need to know God in order to know how to love others. Pray that the wicked things in you would be exposed. Let Him operate on you and know Him.
Preparation for His Presence Part 1: Being a Carrier of His Presence
Prophet Bob gave words for the church, and there was a tongue and interpretation with a song given. Sermon: 2 Tim. 3:1-5 tells of the danger of the last days. Sin is the problem, and we’re in a war against the powers of darkness. We should be wearing God’s armor, and Satan is under our feet. We need to allow God to search us intimately each day (Ps. 139:23-24), so that we can be in intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. Live a lifestyle of being saturated with His presence. We are to fear God; God will bring every work into judgment (Eccl. 12:13). The fight is our “crucifying ourselves”, judging ourselves, and getting rid of the judgment against others. God is preparing us to carry His presence to the nations, so we will have layers of our inner man peeled off as we have #1 the fear of the Lord, #2 walk in His love, and #3 walk in the Holy Spirit and power. We also have to judge ourselves whether we are in faith or not, if we are bearing proper fruits, and not disqualifying ourselves at the end (2 Cor. 13:5). Ask yourself: What am I doing? What are my thoughts and attitudes? What are my emotions, body, and mind doing? Examine yourself. Remember, you are a missionary wherever you go.
Secret Things Revealed
Pastor Bob gave some prophetic words of encouragement. Text: Rom. 8:5-8. This is a new season for the Body of Christ in which there is an urgency for a deeper revelation of the secrets for the will of God to be put into motion. We can’t miss what God wants us to do individually and corporately. It’s harvest time in the nations, and we are the voice of God to this generation. More than ever, we cannot live fleshly-minded, but we must become spiritually-minded. Maintain praise and worship. Fix your mind on spiritual things. Pray in tongues more than ever before! Please God with your faith and trust in Him (Heb. 11:6; Ps. 34:8; Rom. 8:31, Luke 12:31-32). The divine opportunity is now, and we need to use our tongue and our faith to bring victory. Spend time in the Spirit, and He will give you new ideas, books, sermons, songs. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth (John 16:13-15). Do what the Holy Spirit tells you to do. Present yourself holy , so you are a living sacrifice and can communicate with Him. What are you going to do with the spiritual things God tells you?
New Things Now
Is. 43:18-19 tells us to forget the past things, because God is doing a new thing. Is. 42:5-9 says that we have been called, and He keeps us; we are to open blind eyes and bring out prisoners; God will declare new things. God wants to change and rearrange us. Is. 42:10 tells us to sing a new song and to praise Him. John 16:12-15 lets us know that He wants to show us new things to come. We are to pray in the Spirit and to pray for the understanding, and we will have a new song and revelation (1 Cor. 14:12). Bob read twice a word that the Lord gave him for CWI about new things of the Spirit, new ways to do ministry, new ideas to create wealth, great change that will be manifested by the obedience of God’s people, the glory of God’s presence, and cleansing in our hearts, because the time is NOW! He read the blessings of Deuteronomy 28. (There were several words given to individuals in the congregation.)
Established To Reign
Ps. 34:15-17. God’s eyes are on the righteous, and His ears hear their cry. He delivers the righteous from all their troubles. We need to cry out for our country and for this region, because God’s people are being pulled into slavery. Listen to the Holy Spirit and pray, intercede, and cry out to God. Rom. 5:17-21 tells us that we must receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life through Jesus Christ. Whose righteousness do we have? We have Jesus Christ’s righteousness, so we can be bold and confident in Him. By seeing through the eyes of faith we can see backsliddden Christians turning back to Jesus, revival in the home, people loving one another, and people being changed by the anointing. It’s up to God’s people to cry out. We are distributors of His grace. By reigning in the Spirit, we can get things done in the natural. This nation needs to be delivered from Satan’s control, and it’s our faith that can bring the change. Prevail! We have the advantage, the anointing, and mouths to speak the Word. Prov. 14:34 says that righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. We must awake to righteousness and not sin (1 Cor. 15:34). Pray- the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much; turn a sinner from death (James 5:16-20). Cover this nation with the righteousness of God. The righteous people’s cry will deliver us. Bob ministered several words to the congregation.
The Wealth of Wisdom Part 9
Get Wisdom and Get Understanding. John 8:31, 32 If we continue in God’s Word, we will intimately know the truth, which sets us and other people free. You need to be in the place of authority, or Satan will steal from you. Ps. 119:45 How badly do you want to walk in liberty? To keep from being bound up, receive the Word. The responsibility for seeking for the truth and promises is ours, not God’s. The Word tells us repeatedly to not be deceived (I Cor. 6:9, I Cor. 15:33, Gal. 6:7). I Tim. 3:10-13 If you’re not free in an area, search to know the truth for that. Prov. 4:1-7 Get wisdom and get understanding. Give me understanding (Ps. 119:34, 73, 125, 144, 169). Prov. 28:5; Ps. 111:10. To get God’s results, do it God’s way. In Matt. 13:18-23 (Parable of the Sower) they all heard the Word, but the results came as they responded to it. Seek for understanding. I John 5:18-20 Knowing God is understanding.
The Spirit of Truth
John 16:13 The Spirit of Truth guides you into all truth. He tells us what He hears the Father say, and He will tell you things to come. Pray in the Spirit to know what the Father’s plan is for you everyday and then do it. De-clutter your heart of cares and deceitfulness and lusts, because they destroy the ability to hear. I John 4:1-6 There are many false prophets. We must be sensitive to what the Greater One inside of us is saying so we can overcome. The Holy Spirit and God’s peace guide us. Wherever you go, the anointing manifests. John 15:26 The Comforter has come, and He brings you freedom. Are you on the wrong road, a road of the flesh, the world, worry, jealousy…? Get on the highway of the Holy Spirit so you can get to your proper destination and complete your assignment. II Cor. 4:4 The god of this world blinds those who don’t believe, so they won’t receive the Holy Spirit. We can know the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error.
This is a time when we need to be powerful. Luke 18:1-8 exhorts (commands) us to pray and not get weary. Do the Gospel; share it; lay hands on the sick; pray for people. The heart-confession connection causes change in your life. We must be full of faith in order to fight. What is God doing in you? God will speedily avenge His own who cry out day and night. Heb. 11:1 Faith is a now, quick-work. Situations are subject to change in Jesus’ name. What controls you: what you hear, see, and feel or what the Word of God says? Ps. 103 tells us to bless the Lord with all that is within us and to bless His holy name and to not forget His benefits. Don’t tolerate what you shouldn’t. Don’t let your faith fade and faint. Sharon Hawk shares how she prayed about seed and received a harvest to plant the seed, when Bob’s faith was faint, and he didn’t even think to pray about it. Luke 18:1 There should be constant prayer in the CWI body. We’re connected like a husband and wife. Do we let things slip? Don’t faint. If your faith slips, recognize it, and repent (turn around). There are many demonic forces blocking people, and then people make decisions out of the will of God. Stay in the Word and the Holy Spirit. When we get blessed, God’s kingdom is increase. Awake! Stir yourself up! Repent! Change!
Stay Sharp With the Word
Using the analogy of a butcher sharpening his much-used knife, we need to sharpen ourselves with the “knife” of the Word. We can become “dull” in discernment, but we need greater sensitivity and discernment so we can minister to others to set them free. I Tim. 4:1, 2. If we adapt to what we hear in the world and become apathetic or like the world, we allow compromise and a watering-down of the Gospel to come in. II Tim. 3:10-17 tells us that if we live godly in Jesus Christ, we will suffer persecution. The holy Scriptures are able to make us wise for salvation (sozo) through faith in Jesus Christ. We must be able to discern, because there is deception. We can live godly because of His grace. Who are you seeking? Where is your faith? Always discern what you’re hearing. Listen to God, not man, so that you may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Listen to God, not man, so that you may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Sudden Impacts Are You Prepared
The Lord told Bob prophetically that 2011 was going to be a year of sudden impacts, which all of us have seen to be the case. There have been positive suddenlies and negative ones. How we respond to these happenings depends on the place of the Word in our lives. Are you moved by circumstances or by the Word? When these situations hit you, you will find out if you have faith in the Word and the Lord, and there will be a defining line between those who are committed to the Lord and those who aren’t. We are to be world-changers. There is an explosive force in us. If we are operating in the truth and true faith, we will rise to a higher level of discernment, so we can bring a word into people’s lives. How we react to these happenings will also equip us for a stronger anointing. What’s the right response/reaction? LOVE. We must be motivated by love and be agents of love, because love never fails. Satan will try to bring confusion to God’s order, but we must stay in and be controlled by peace and the Holy Spirit. Eph. 4:1 Don’t let Satan take God’s Word from you or the measure of God’s gift that is in you. The five-fold ministry gifts are to equip us so we can get the work done. Pray that we can discern the motives of people and be keen to the activity in the spiritual realm and step into the authority with the Word.
Overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and by Your Testimony
Bob Hawk gives two words to the congregation. Sermon message: Rev. 12:11 We should be overcoming the enemy, and if we aren’t, it’s our fault. We need to get our fight back and invade the kingdom of darkness. Rom. 8:31-39 tells us that God is for us and that He loves us. Love never fails; God is love; His love has been put in our hearts; we are more than conquerors! Say “NO!!!!” to the enemy and don’t lose your faith. First John 4:4 says that we are of God and have overcome, because greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world, and that’s our testimony! In 1 John 5:1-5 we learn that as believers we are born of God, and we overcome the world. Jon Fike shared his testimony of saying “NO!” to what Satan tried to do to him on his family’s vacation and the overcoming power of his testimony and Jesus’ blood. In 1 Tim. 1:18-19 Paul tells Timothy that according to testimonies he could wage good warfare but to make sure his conscience was good. Hold your faith and keep your conscience clear.
Assignments Revealed For Increase
A Word was presented for the Church. Offering message: Mal. 3:10-12 tells us that God rebukes the devourer for our sakes when we bring in the tithes. It also says that all nations (peoples) shall call us blessed. Ps. 115:14-15 gives the truth that God will increase us more and more, us and our children. A word was delivered for two young men in the congregation. Sermon message: God has given us special assignments. We have favor and abilities no one else has, and this is the day for us to reap the harvest. Ps. 67:1-7 God wants His way known here. We need to be worshipers and praisers outside of the church service, too. Then the earth will yield increase. I Thess. 3:11-12 The Lord will make us increase and abound in love to one another and to all men. We are to let our fruit show outside the church building, so that He may establish our hearts blameless in holiness. We are to love in deed and in truth or in practice and sincerity (John 3:18). We are to hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, consider one another to stir up love and good works, and exhort one another as the Day approaches (Heb. 10:23-25). We need to seek God as to how provoke one another in love. We need new life in this body. Jesus taught, preached, and healed by going where the people were (Matt. 9:32-38). Get into the center of activity of the people of this generation. The revival in us must go out from here. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few (Luke 10:1-2 and John 4:34-38). Our assignment is to pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into the harvest. We must step into the lives of people who need help. Win people to Jesus! I Cor. 3:6-8 God gives the increase to our labor. We’re in this together. We receive our reward according to our labor. Luke 14:12-24 relates about the banquet prepared for the poor, lame, maimed, and blind. Rise into action! Invite those who need to hear the Word to church. Invite them to your house for a meal. We are the harvesters of this generation. Take your assignment to this generation.
Hearing the Voice of the Lord in the Time of Harvest
Offering Notes: Dale Armstrong: Eph. 3:20 God’s ability and power are not a question. We must cooperate with God on His terms for salvation and healing. God wants to fine-tune us and He expects us to be more obedient because He has more to give us. Joshua 1:8 Meditate in the Word that you may observe to do according to what is wirtten. Prosperity is more linked with meditation than giving. Meditate prosperous thoughts and be specific. Mark 11:24 Whatever you desire with description when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. In Andorra, Pastor Dale taught someone how to use his faith by the example of putting his faith with his desire. Expect and release faith. Bob Hawk “Hearing the Voice of the Lord in the Time of Harvest” Sermon notes: Deut. 28:1 It shall come to pass if we diligently obey the voice of the Lord to observe His commandments … John 4:34-38 tells us that Jesus’ food was to finish His work. That’s ours also. The fields are already white for harvest, now. We must aggressively win the lost. Look at your field and don’t take your salvation for granted, but be inflamed with the fire of God. Listen to what God is saying. In 1 Cor. 3:6-8 we are told that we are laborers with one another and with God. Everyone will receive his own reward according to his own labor. We must listen to His voice and be in His will, regardless of our circumstances. Rev. 2: 7, 11, 17, 29; 2:3, 6, 13, and 22 say, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says…” Rev. 3:19-20 We must listen to what God is telling us and be where we belong. Things that are hidden will be revealed, so let your light shine (Mark 4:20-25). Be aggressive and don’t miss the greatest awakening. Hear, and He will give you more. Isaiah 1:19 tells us to be willing and obedient and that we will eat the good of the land. Other texts: 1 Peter 1:14; John 10:1-5; Rom. 8:12-14; John 16:13. Are we willing to spend time in fellowship long enough to hear what He wants to share with us? Don’t listen to the voices of past “strangers”. Listen to God with an open heart. Be specific in what you desire or are asking. Live by the Spirit, and He will guide you and tell you things to come.
Repent and Pursue God’s Presence
Our assignment is to go to the next level for this region, this nation, and other nations. Pray for a demonstration of His power. Take authority over the strategies of the enemy and do what you are to do. There is power, but there is a cost to pay. Don’t miss the will of God for your life. It will take greater seeking for His presence. God wants our heart. In 2 Chronicles 7:14 we are told to 1) humble ourselves, not others. Pride is thinking you can do it yourself. 2) Pray. 3) Seek His face (presence). 4) Turn from your evil ways. We must produce. Don’t allow heart issues to continue. Mal. 3:1-3 tells us that God was sending a messenger who would be like the refiner and the launderer. We need to deal with any heart issues and sin in our lives. The fire refines and purifies what is gross. The baptism of fire must be invited. It can be resisted if you don’t want to change. Luke 3:16. God wants His church to reflect His image. Matt. 3:1-5 tells of John the Baptist calling for people to repent, think differently, change their conduct. We can change the atmosphere for miracles. Matt. 4:17 Jesus said for people to repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. In Mark 1:2-15 Immediately after Jesus received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, He was sent into the wilderness. We must repent and believe and do. Doing is where the manifestations of glory take place. Mark 6:7-12 The twelve disciples also preached that people should repent. Allow your heart to be changed by the fire of His presence. Acts 3:19 Repent and be converted that your sin may be blotted out and times of refereshing from the presence of the Lord. Conversion will change people and they way they think and act. Worship the true God and turn back to the love of wisdom and righteousness. Pursue God and His presence. Repentance is not a bad message.
The Goodness of God
The benefit of the Good Shepherd hinges on our believing that Jesus Christ is our personal Shepherd. If He is your Shepherd and Lord, you will not want and lack. You will be in a place of peace, your soul will be restored, He will lead you in paths of righteousness, you will fear no evil, you will eat a feast while your enemies watch, and goodness and mercy will follow you. In Matt. 4:4 Jesus said that it’s written that man shall live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Don’t draw back from God’s table and His Word. He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35). This is a time to worship and to gather together. The devil is intent against you, and you can condemn him. As part of Body of Christ, you are infused with power from God. Ps. 34:1-10 tells us to bless the Lord at all times and praise Him continually. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear God. Your life should be worship. Matt. 7:7-11 instructs us to ask, seek, and knock and that He gives good things to those who ask Him. Keep Jesus Christ in the Shepherd and Lord position in your life.
Texts: Eph. 2:1-10; II Cor. 12:9; II Cor. 8:9. God is rich in mercy, and He is in love with you. He wants to show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us. Giving requires receiving. What you have, give away. However, you must be able to receive in order to give out, which requires humility. Do you know how to receive? Give up the pride, set your heart to receive, and say, “Thank You, Jesus.” The power of God is the grace of God. Your faith pulls in God’s free gifts. Jesus became poor, so that you can be rich, but you must receive it. The work you have grace for is the work He has called you to. Sowing starts in the heart. God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you will have all sufficiency in all things. Are you questioning God’s ability? Focus on Him and His grace. Grace is the power to produce what you need. Tap into the grace of God. He gives you grace, because He wants you to get the work done that He has called you to do. Don’t limit God. There was ministry to those who have businesses by people who have creative abilities.
Watch! and Be Witnesses in These Last Days
II Tim. 3:1-5 tells about the perilous times of the last days. This passage of scripture is describing our present time. In Acts 1:6-11 we are told that we are to be witnesses of Jesus Christ, because the Holy Spirit has come upon us. Mark 13:32-37 is a call to watch and pray. We have Jesus Christ’s authority to minister- to work. Prayer is our assignment. Allow the blood of Jesus to cleanse you and be alert and awake, not letting Satan to pull you down. Maintain the mind of Christ, and don’t take on the cares of the world. This is a time to use your faith and not be self-deceived. We represent Jesus and He will never leave us. He needs us to walk in His power and demonstration of Jesus. Joel 3:0 Prepare for war and wake up the mighty men of war (spiritual warfare), because multitudes are in the valley of indecision. Be bold. Rom. 13:8-14 Love one another and pray for the deception to be broken off of people. Assist people to make a decision for Christ and make no provision for the flesh by putting on Jesus. I Cor. 15 tells us to wake to righteousness and sin not. Be people of truth and worship God in Spirit and truth. Get rid of the complacency, deception, and hidden things in your heart. You are not getting away with anything. Will you walk worthy of the Lord? Do your reflect Jesus?
Sit at Jesus Feet and Then Act
God is giving “must do” assignments to His people, and we must say, “Yes, Lord.” If we get His thoughts, we will get His ways. Wait in His presence to get the word He has deposited in you. Take time to seek Him for the anointing for revelation. II Chron. 7:12-15. We need the fear of God and His grace. Be faithful with what He has already given you. National revival belongs to the USA. We are to carry revival to all nations, so that God’s Spirit can bring life whenever He comes on someone. Are you a believer? You have power. Humble yourself. Pray. Seek God’s face. Turn from your wicked ways and distractions. Then, He will hear from heaven, forgive your sin, heal your land. This is a time to be totally dependent on Him. We need more favor. We need to share the revival spirit with the compromising, lukewarm, and cold church. Luke 10:38-42 is the story of Mary and Martha. Martha was distracted, but Mary sat at Jesus’ feet. Busyness takes us out of the place where we can seek Him. We must see the adjustments we need to make. God wants to deposit more upon CWI that is beyond natural reasoning. Make spending time with Jesus a top priority. Don’t be distracted by the cares of this world. John 6:27 Labor for the food which endures to everlasting life. Ps. 138:7-8 God will revive us and perfect that which concerns us. Put action to His Word. God loves us so much. Matt. 6:33 Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things (food, clothing, shelter) will be added to you.
The Shift, The Move of The Holy Spirit, and Assignments
Bob delivered a word concerning the flow in business. He prophesied about adjustments in relationships and management of financial affairs. “Weird” people would be used by God and come into the church after going into places many wouldn’t want to go. The church will have compassion and love for those who are coming in. Bob continued to preach from last Sunday night’s sermon, starting with Deut. 1:11. God is giving assignments to you. II Cor. 12:1-9 God’s grace is sufficient for you. His strength is made perfect in weakness. Satan tries to control and take you out before you complete your assignment. Remember, His strength allows us to glory in Him, take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, needs, persecutions… for Christ’s sake. His gracious favor is all you need. Phil. 4:13 Christ strengthens you and infuses you with inner strength. Eph. 3:14-16. You are strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man. Is. 40:29-31 He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might. Is. 11:1, 2. It’s the same Spirit in you that baptized Jesus and raised Him from the dead. Eph. 6:10, 11. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might. Col. 1:9; Eph. 1:17-19.
Increase in the Kingdom of God
We are on assignments from heaven to people waiting for us to show up, to be touched by God, and to get a word from God. Deut. 1:11 says, “May the Lord God make you 1000 times more numerous than you are and bless you as He has promised you.” The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy of the Holy Spirit. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that you don’t miss any opportunities. God wants to bring increase into His kingdom and into us individually. There was a shift in us, a shift that will take us beyond ourselves into a place of faith for others so they can be made whole. Each assignment is a “must do”. Ps. 115:9-18 God blesses those who fear the Lord. He will increase us and our children. Ps. 2:8 Ask of God, and He will give us the nations for His inheritance, and the ends of the earth for His possession. Possess by your faith. Matt. 19:26 tells us that with God all things are possible. Mark 9:23 tells us that if you can believe, all things are possible. Mark 9:17-29 God wants us to get rid of the unbelief in our hearts. How do you get to belief? Fasting and prayer. Intercession and prayer change the atmosphere. It’s a lifestyle. For the 1000 times more to happen, it will take intercession and prayer. Mark 10:27; Mark 14:36; Jer. 23:17; Luke 1:26-28 all affirm that nothing is impossible with God. We are highly favored of the Lord, blessed, part of the anointing that Pastor Dale has. God is always with us (Matt. 28:18-20); Heb. 13:5, 6. Ps. 138:7, 8; and Matt. 9:36-38 reveal of God’s love and care for us. Pray for God to send forth the laborers into the harvest. John 4:31-38 is the general assignment- to God’s will and finish His work. Go to the harvest, which He has already prepared for you. To do the assignments, people will have to depend on the Holy Spirit and God’s love and mercy. Pray and obey. The steps of obedience will bring His grace and power to bring in the harvest. We are carriers of revival. There was a time of ministry for people who want to make prayer a priority. There were several words to people during and at the end of the sermon.
What Will You Do With What God Is Doing
Offering Message and Introdcution by Pastor Dale: We are in revival! The revival has shifted. It has moved from one state to another. It has gone from one point of acceleration to a higher one. Pastor Syd Ropp and CWI Colorado are desiring, declaring, and decreeing revival! Celebration and laughter filled our hearts. Luke 5:1-6 It came to pass as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the Word of God. They pressed in to hear the Word. Jesus interrupted Simon’s work of washing his nets and put it on hold. Elijah seemed to be without compassion when He told her to make him a cake with the only food she had left. She had told him that it was only enough for her and her son, and then she was going to die. Why didn’t he try to fix her problem? He wanted her to put God first. Seek first the kingdom of God and then all of these things will be added to you. Put God first, and you’ll see increase. Pastor Dale tells of the miracle of getting a beautiful bank building for $120,000. God is drawing our hearts to connect with Him. What are you saying? What are you desiring? The only thing we should be carrying is the anointing. In Luke 5:12, 13 Jesus told the leper He was willing to set him free. He touched him and immediately the leprosy left him. Get closer to God. Connect your heart with His. You must learn to worship Him! There are times and seasons, and in the day of His power, we must be willing. What will you do with the sudden impacts in your life? #1 Deal with pride in your life. James 4:5-7 tells us that God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Who are the proud? They are those who do not depend on God all the way. Your pride will stop you from receiving from the Holy Spirit what He wants for your life. If you are carrying care, you are in pride. You can have grace in the midst of worry, mess, and when the enemy seems to be winning. #2 Submit to God, the truth, and the Word. #3 Then you can resist the devil, and he will flee from you. #4 Draw near to God. Cleanse your hands. Purify your hearts. Pray and praise Him. Heb. 10:19 tells us that it’s because of Jesus Christ’s blood that we can have boldness to enter the Holiest. There is an open-heaven for those who diligently seek Him. Bury the past. You can’t take it into the future. Know this: Whenever God shows up, so does the devil. There is wisdom and revelation to know who is the enemy and what to do with him. Eventually we lose ourselves as we draw near to God and resist the devil. Revival is not a meeting. Live your lifetime in revival. Draw near to God, and reisit the devil; repeat process. Revival is abundance. Do you have an evil conscience? Deal with it. God wants to sprinkle and flood us with His presence, until all the smell of the world is removed. Use the keys of heaven to lock and loose. God is faithful! After ministry: There are ruts in our thinking that are out of God’s will and Word. God will put a check in our hearts, so that we do not entertain those thoughts. He will open up our understanding of scripture.
Asking For and Expecting More
Offering message: (Pastor Dale) I Kings 17:2 ff. The Word of the Lord is Jesus, not the Holy Spirit speaking. This is the time and this is the place. You must be in the place of God’s blessing. Pastor Dale told of a time when he and Bob Hawk prayed every Wednesday and everything they prayed was answered, because it was time. Bob Hawk delivered a word from the Lord about quickening, understanding, and His calling us. The order is to MOVE! Bob first shared that the river is here- now and in this place. Ezekiel 47:3-9. Sue Baughman told of the visions the Lord revealed to her about the river and fountain. Revival brings us to awareness of what God is doing, and He pours out resurrection power. Zech. 10:1-13 Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain. Luke 11:1 ff- Jesus’ disciples asked Him to teach them to pray as John taught his disciples. We are to bring heaven to earth. Be shamelessly persistent. Keep asking. Keep seeking. Keep knocking for the things of God. Don’t give up! God wants a continual pouring out from our lives. Acts 3:1-11 The lame man was expecting money, but he received something greater, because of the authority in the name of Jesus Christ. We have that same authority. In Acts 4:23-31 the believers prayed for more boldness. The disciples had been filled with the Holy Spirit and had spoken in tongues at Pentecost, but they received another filling to speak the Word with boldness. Other scriptures: Mark 11:24; Matt. 21:22; John 13:14, 15; John 16:23; Jer. 29:11. Bob ministered to those desiring more boldness to speak the Word of God and to minister to others. He had a specific word for Lee Jones. Jim gave a word about God taking us at warp-speed to reach the end-time harvest. Vera Zimmerman told about seeing a river that even flowed uphill.
Suddenlies, Desire, Calling, Delight
Acts 2:1-4, 14-18 tells the account of Pentecost. It was a suddenly. Jesus’ followers were in one accord in one place and the Holy Spirit’s presence filled the building. The years 2011 will be and has already been a year of suddenlies- both good and bad. It’s an important choice of how we handle these suddenlies. We must be filled continuously with the Holy Spirit and receive all God has for us. We are in the last days, and according to Joel, He will pour out of His Spirit on all flesh. Expect to receive and deliver prophetic utterance from the Holy Spirit. Expect God to give you visions and dreams. There was a time of ministry to those whose hearts are broken. Bob also ministered a prophetic song about God’s desire, His calling you by name, His delight; about being counted, called, chosen; being in the place in Him; about change and revealing His delight and desire. He said that He requires what He has invested in you. We are carriers of His Spirit, and we should reveal His desire. He has opened doors and given us His favor, presence, desire. He wants us to come under His covering and into His fold. He desires for us to be His mouthpiece, hands, and feet to go out and bring the lost to Him. That is His desire. The congregation responded with “I will come for You. I will go for You.” A prophetic word was ministered to Bob at the end of the service.
Good God Almighty
Bob Hawk ministers a word to the congregation about what God is doing here and in His people. Bob reminds us to receive- receive an impartation from Him. In order to receive from God, we must believe that He is good to us. In Ps. 145:8, 9 we learn that the Lord is gracious, full of compassion, slow to anger, and great in mercy. He is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works. James 1:2-7; we can ask for wisdom and He gives it to us. He wants to deposit goodness in us so we can distribute it to others. Eph. 2:4-7 He wants to reveal to us things that are to come. He wants to reveal His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. We are at a critical time. We must yield and submit to Him. I Tim. 6:17 Trust in the living God, who gives us all things richly to enjoy. Matt. 7:7-9 Ask, seek, knock. We don’t have because we don’t ask. We must be full containers of His love, mercy, Holy Spirit, Word, anointing, healing, miracles. Ps. 84:11 God does not withhold any good thing from those who walk unrightly. If we sin, we repent. He’s already paid the price for our sins and for our healing. Rom. 8:31-32 tells us that God is for us. What can you believe to receive from God? Bob and Pastor Dale ministered to each person who came to receive an impartation from God.
Water in the Wilderness and Rivers in the Desert
Isaiah 43:15-21 Remember not the former things. Behold, God is doing a new thing. Now it will spring forth, and we will know it! God will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Many Christians are weary, and there is a dryness in them. God has promised us a promised land, but if we believe lies, if we don’t give ourselves to Him as #1 priority, and if we get tired in the everyday battle against Satan, we will be in a dry place. God gives drink to His people, because He has formed us for Himself and for His praise. He wants to water us. Repentance is necessary for revival. What does it mean to “drink”? It is to irrigate, to furnish a portion to, to moisten, to water, to soak, to absorb; a consciousness that we live by the intangible; condoning fellowship; giving drink to a thirsty one condones compassion; to receive into one’s soul what refreshes and nourishes; participation in relationships; a desire for God that only He can satisfy. We must become gluttons for and soak in His presence. Other scriptures: Ps. 42:1,2; Ps. 63:1-8; Ps. 143:6; Isaiah 44:3, 4. The rivers of living water are His Spirit. God’s fire brings into being a sanctified life. He will rip out the things that don’t belong in us, because we were created for fellowship with Him. Drink into your heart and absorb and partake of a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit. (There was ministry to anyone wanting ministry to receive an impartation of the fresh living water and rivers of the Holy Spirit. Testimonies: Robert Cox shared a testimony of God’s supernatural power manifested in his life in a time of total breakdown. Bob and Sharon Hawk told of the healing miracle in Sharon’s mother’s body and how they stood on the Word because her mother is a giver to the poor and a tither.
The King of Glory The Glory of God
Ps. 24:1-10. We must open our hearts to receive from God. We were created for good works. We are anointed with the Holy Spirit and promise for function. Compare yourself with Jesus. We must give away what we have received. To get a deposit of giftings we must get rid of what does not belong to us and open our hearts to the King of Glory. Are we logged up? Repent. II Cor. 3:15-18 tells us that where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty to release anointing, to speak, to hear, to rejoice, to know the grace of God. We are transformed into the image of Jesus from glory to glory. God wants to fill us up with the right stuff. In II Cor. 4:1-7 we learn that we do not lose heart because we are transformed. Are we partakers of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Are we single-minded? What is holding us back? We have the knowledge of the glory of God in us that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. Do we have a heart for the lost? Pastor Dale Armstrong and Bob Hawk ministered to a couple who are in ministry.
If You Believe You Will See The Glory of God
Hab. 2:14 (The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.) Knowledge means to know by experience; gained through experience or association. II Thess. 2:13 God chose us for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth. God wants us to know His glory through experiencing it. Revival belongs to you. You must receive it. God wants us full of His power. We must trust in the Lord, walk in faith, and make our decisions by being led by the Spirit of God. It’s time for a higher degree of glory and revelation. Believing comes before seeing the manifestation. We must obtain and seize the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Heb. 11:6 – He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Is. 43:5-7. Rom. 9:23-26 God prepared people beforehand for glory. What is glory? It is honor, reverence. splendor, brightness, manifestations of God’s divine presence, the goodness of God, riches, smoke- a cloud. Eph. 1:16-18 – that you may know the hope of His calling and the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. There are many who have not experienced or heard of God’s glory. Are we going to take the gospel everywhere we go? Col. 1:25-27. Christ in you is the hope of glory, the hope of the manifestation of God’s divine presence. Keep your faith engaged and allow the miracle worker in you to be taken out to the world.
Ministering to the Lord
Pastor Dale and Jon Fike ministered in the Spirit in praise. Bob Hawk ministered a word in song, a word of encouragement to Robert Cox, and spoke briefly on encouragement from Isaiah 60:1-5 and Ps. 34:1. There is no want to those who fear God. He is calling us to a life of obedience. Stop your double-mindedness, press forth, and the grace of God will come on you.
Revival and God’s Glory
Bob Hawk preaches about the glory of the Lord and what needs to happen for us to enter into His glory and into revival. Is. 60:1-5 tells us that we are to arise and shine, that the glory of the Lord is risen upon us, and His glory is seen upon us. We are God’s representatives, His ambassadors. Be hungry for His presence. God is going to shake loose in us whatever doesn’t belong to Him. We need to deal with the heart issues and get rid of the sins and the “good” things that are not God’s best for us. When we stop holding back, increase can come. Rom. 6:4- we should walk in the newness of life, which is revival. Glory is God’s divine presence and His appearance commanding respect. We must respect God to go into His glory, and when we do, Satan will attack us. We can’t pet our sin, but we must take authority over it and be cleansed by Jesus Christ’s blood. Ps. 85:6 asks if God will revive us again. Revival means to return, to recover from death to life, to be refreshed in joy, and to be brought back again into notice. Ps. 138:1-8 God resists the proud. Even in the middle of trouble, He revives us. The Lord will complete what concerns us and His mercy endures forever. Eph. 5:14-21 tells the “sleepers” to awake, and be filled with the Spirit, and Christ will give us light. It is time for the church to arise and shine. Gal. 5:16. Open your heart so God can pour His Spirit into it, and you can have a life of constant fellowship with Him.
Revelation to a Deeper Depth Part 2
This is a continuation of part 1 on Jan. 16th.
Revelation to a Deeper Depth Part 1
Pastor Dale tells about Gene Olon praying for someone in the “cake line” at a wedding. He also tells about praying for a man to be filled with the Holy Spirit while he was driving. Bob Hawk expounds on the word from the Lord given to him between Christmas and New Year’s 2009 about equipping us for His purpose. Sharpen your skill to listen to Him. He will quicken and illuminate what He already has in store for us. The spirit of confusion and fear has to be broken over the Body of Christ. CWI has a breaking anointing to set people free and set them into their destiny. After Oral Roberts died, there was an adjustment, a rearranging. God told Bob, “Revelations to deeper depth with a stronger flow will be released to My people. Righteousness, power to live right before the Lord, understanding how to stand in order in His body.” God is going to make adjustments in us, rearranging us, and putting us in order. Confusion comes into a church when people are out of order. Bob explains “righteousness” and “shift”. We were created for this time, and we must walk worthy, presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice, and stand perfect and complete in the will of God. We must shift from believing lies, tradition, and what symptoms say in our bodies, to the truth, which is the only thing we can agree upon.
Prophetic Conference: Call for Intercession
Bob Hawk delivers a word about CWI being a preparing, equipping, and sending church. In a prophetic act, the congregation formed a wall against the enemy by joining arms. Gene Olon and Bob ministered to those who are being led into deeper intercession. Bob expounds on the need for intercession.
My People Are the Prophet Over Their Own Lives
Prov. 18:20, 21 tells us about the power of the tongue for life and death Release the Word of God into the atmosphere. Mark 11:12-23. How do we speak life? By putting the Word in your heart, saying it, believing it, and guarding your heart. In Rom. 4:9 we learn that Abraham called thing that didn’t exist as though they did. Heb. 11:3 the worlds were framed by the Word of God. Be persistent and don’t draw back. We have a voice of authority. Yield to God. Job 22:21-28. We live by God’s words. Get to know Him and put His words in your heart. Ask Him what needs to come out of your heart. God assumes you will do what you say. Allow God’s two-edged sword to separate the flesh. You can’t drag your past into your future. Bob shares some personal testimonies and speaks out declarations.
A Word For 2011 Sudden Impacts
Prophet Bob Hawk shares a word for 2011 about sudden impacts. He defines the terms and clarifies the importance of the time we are in for this year and this decade. God is making adjustments in our lives, and it is critical for you to stay in love, submit to God and resist the devil, purify yourself, be single-minded, cooperate with God for divine connections, stay in connection with God, and listen to the Spirit of God. There is an accountability to finish the course.
Keep Your Eyes on Jesus
Pastor Bob preaches about the importance of focusing on Jesus and the truth, especially in these end times, when the enemy would try to get our eyes on circumstances. Don’t let your circumstances control you. See Jesus, see His Word, and see things by faith. How do you see yourself? How do you see the church? Scriptures: Prov. 4:25, 26; Ps. 123:2; Rom. 3:4; Heb. 12:1, 2; II Cor. 4:17.
The Fear of the Lord
Acts 9:31 and Heb. 12:28 and 29. The fear of God means no compromise, but obedience to Him, His will, His Spirit, and His Word. His commandment is to love Him and to love one another. The sin of The Fall was disobedience. We can’t carry sin into the throne room. Confess your sin to Him. Jesus Christ shed His blood and went to hell for you. Judgment begins in the house of the Lord. Become a living sacrifice for Jesus. We are called to His perfect will. Get right with Him in every part of your heart and minister to your family and to the people you meet. Reverence the Lord in church services. If we don’t reverence Him, He can’t draw the unsaved in.
Did I Ever Tell You About
Listen to Pastor Bob and Sharon Hawk’s testimony about proving God in tithes and offerings, a word given through Pastor Dale, and Pastor Bob’s prophetic words to individuals. Ps. 34:1-10 tells us to bless, praise, magnify, exalt, and seek the Lord and that He delivers us from all our fears and saves us; taste and see that the Lord is good. Jer. 32:17 records that nothing is too hard for God. (Also: Mark 9:23 and Mark 10:27) Pastor Bob shares many testimonies of God’s goodness and His limitlessness. Teaching from Job 22:21-30 -acquaint yourself with God everyday and make decisions only in the peace of God; receive and meditate on His Word; put away, resist iniquity; make Him the delight of your life; decide and decree your desire. Mark 11:12-24 tells you to say and not doubt in your heart, and you shall have whatever you say. What do you want? BE SINGLE-MINDED! Repent. Pray and speak the same thing. Desire Jesus.
Being Led by the Spirit of God
Rom. 8:12-16. In these end times we must be led by the Holy Spirit and not by the flesh. We must be transformed by the renewing of our minds and put to death the deeds of the body (flesh). Maintain your spirit life and don’t let your flesh control you through your mind. If we are led by the Spirit of God, we are the sons of God, which are the mature ones. We have not received the spirit of bondage to fear. Listen to Pastor Bob’s wife, Sharon, share her testimony of fear manifested in compulsive-obsessive behavior and her deliverance from it by using the Word and releasing forgiveness in her spirit and in her mind. Train your flesh to listen to the Spirit. Meditate on the truth that you are a child of the Almighty Creator God. Communicate with your Father through the Holy Spirit. Ps. 34:7-11 tells us about the goodness of the Spirit and what we have as God’s sons. Pastor Bob delivers a word at the end of the service.
Light Us Up and Send The Fire
Pastor Bob reviews I John 1:5-7, I John 4:15–18, Matt. 5:14-16; Ps. 104:4, and Heb. 1:7. God is light. God is love. We are the light of the world, and God make His servants a flame of fire. Chester Petersheim and Rachel Stoltzfus share testimonies of the recent trip with Dominic Russo Ministries to the Dominican Republic. Two other team members also testified to God’s goodness on the trip. There was time for ministry.
Light It Up
(There are several words, personal and general given at the beginning of the sermon.) God is light and God is love, and so are we. We are created in God’s image to do good works. What are you to be doing? Jesus did more than teaching, preaching, and healing. We are to be zealous for good works. Scripture is profitable. We can’t change if we don’t allow the light to expose our sin and the darkness in us. God wants profit from His church, and so we must present ourselves to Him to a higher degree. He wants to instruct us in righteousness. Where do you stand in your love walk?
The Love of Light Part 2
Prov. 20:27 tells you that the spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of his heart. Your spirit man must be fed on the Word, and you must take time with the Lord. It’s your spirit man’s strength that will give you the victory. Your future, purpose, and destiny are inside of you, but the enemy tries to cloud what God has done and wants to do in your life. God has revealed to you through His Spirit the things He has prepared for you. ((I Cor. 2:12-16) For you to get to the deeper place that God has for you will take your being hungry and thirsty for His presence. For you to experience the greatest pleasure and the perfect will of God, you need to be in fellowship with Him. There’s a caution: don’t let culture, fables, and worldly suspicions keep you from the purposes of God. Make sure what you’re believing and acting on is the Word of God. Let God direct you, not your mind, discern the spirits, and operate out of your spirit.
The Love of Light Part 1
Ps. 119:130 tells you that God’s words give light and understanding to the simple. Do you love the light? Eph. 1:16-18 is a prayer for spiritual wisdom (pray … that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened). God is your Father, and Jesus has already paid the price so that you are redeemed and can access your Father’s throne room. God wants to flood the eyes of your heart with light. You have a certain time from now until you die or Jesus comes for His church, whichever comes first, to reach the unsaved people. Are your eyes set on Jesus? What do you pour your life into every day? You need to make the decision to not be deceived, and the biggest deception might be your thinking that you’re going the right way when you aren’t. Keep your eyes on God and Jesus. Fellowship with God. Make sure your thinking is in line with His. We are headed to a great awakening, and the whole body needs to be motion. John 12:46, 47 Jesus Christ came to save, not judge, the world, and so should you be doing. Are people not being reached because the church too busy? Another deception is taking the Word for granted. If you believe in Jesus, you shouldn’t be abiding in darkness ( not understanding and tapping into all the grace and truth of Jesus, not being filled with the Holy Spirit, and having your understanding clouded, etc.). You are to be world-changers. What have you done with Jesus? What are you doing with what He has given you? Light is revelation. You should walk in the light (I John 1:5). Ask people questions to get into a conversation about Jesus. Reach souls for Jesus. Who have you reached with the Gospel? REPENT. Ask forgiveness and turn away from the sin and the distractions, not to go back to them again.
The Love Monitor
I John 4:7-21; I Cor. 13:4-7; I John 2:5, 15-17; Jude 20-25; Rev. 2:1-5; Matt. 24:3-14. Pastor Bob continues the series of sermons on the love walk with a sermon on monitoring our love walk. To monitor means”one who warns of faults or informs of duty; one who gives advice and instruction by way of reproof or caution.” (1828 Webster’s Dictionary)If you are in fear, there’s something wrong in your love walk. Do you keep God’s Word and your own word? Are you a doer of the Word? Do you love one another? Love never quits. We are to keep (prevent from escaping) ourselves in the love of God, not falling out of love with others and God. We are to repent and do the first works- those things we did in joy and enthusiasm of our new relationship with Jesus- obnoxiously passionate for Jesus. Don’t lose your love for God or for your spouse. He who endures to the end shall be saved. Love never fails, and he who does the will of God abides forever. Do not love the world.
Prayer: Spirit-Led or Flesh-Driven
Rom. 8:1-32. God’s commandment is for us to walk in love and to pray in the Holy Spirit. If we pray in the flesh, our praying can be manipulative and will not release what God’s will is for whomever we are praying. These kinds of prayers displease God. We have to answer to God for what HE has called us to do, not all the “good” things that we do “in the flesh”. We are to pray for the body of Christ, our brothers and sisters, and pray for the them to go into all the world and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Praying in the Spirit connects us to the divine commission and to the Word. Find out where you are not living to your full potential, because that is where you need to pray by the Spirit. Eph. 6:10-18 tells us to stand, take authority, not settle for good instead of best, and to pray and supplicate in the Spirit. PRAY FOR THE BODY, YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST. Do not limit and manipulate other peoples’ lives by what you speak and “prophesy”. Praying Spirit prayers produces things working for our good and allows God to take over. Trust the Holy Spirit to pray through us for the youth. (Also Eph. 6:10-18)
Love That Prevails
We are commanded to walk and act in love. Strife, bitterness, jealousy, etc., cause a person to disconnect from the love walk, and then God cannot reveal Himself to you. God IS love; you are love and are a vehicle of His love to others. We are to follow Jesus and imitate Him in the way He loves. God loved us first, and when we realize His love for us personally, we have a reason to love, give, and to serve. Monitor what you’re saying and make sure your words are life and blessing. Keep the enemy out of your heart, so you do not lose your fruit. Perfect love, a mature love, does not fear evil, because we know God is with us and is our helper. We build ourselves up by praying in the Holy Spirit. Scriptures: I Cor. 13:8; Rom. 13:8-10; John 13:34; John 15:9, 10; Eph. 5:1; I Cor. 13:4-8; I Cor. 13:13; I John 4:15-21; Jude 20.
Earmark to Increase: The Love of God
I John 3:13-18 tells us to love in deed and in truth. Faith without action is dead. We must do His commandments, which are to believe in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and to love one another. I Thess. 3:8-13 … and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another … so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Phil. 1:8 Paul prayed that our love may abound in all knowledge and discernment. Ask yourself: “Am I still teachable?” (Prov. 1:5) John 13:34, 35. In the same way God loves and forgives us, so we need to love and see other believers. We are to be imitators of God as children, walking in love (Eph. 5:1, 2). Selfishness stops love from flowing and keeps us from serving God and opening our mouth for Him.
Love Connection to Faith Activation
Faith works by love. Faith pushes your love into operation. I Thess. 3:12, 13 – May God make us increase and abound in love to one another and to all. We are God’s material, and He is transforming us every day. If your prayers aren’t being answered, check up on your love-walk. John 15:12- It’s God commandment that we love one another as He loved us and that we lay down our life for our friends. Faith without works is dead. The earmark (a mark on the ear by which sheep are known) is our love. Gal. 5:13 and 14 tell us by love to serve one another and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Other scriptures: Rom. 13:8-10; Phil. 1:3-11; I John 4:8, 16, 17; I Cor. 13. God is love, and His love is in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. Make I Cor. 13 a part of your life in every part of your life.
Stir Up the Gift of God in You: The Body Needs Your Gift
Rom. 1:11; II Tim. 1:1-9; Eph. 5:1-2; I John 1:7. We, as the body have been given gifts, which need to be stirred up, like reviving a fire. Doing what God has required us to do is an act of our will, whether it’s serving in the helps ministry, in giving, or in the five-fold gifts. We (corporately) have been given the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. Corporately, we must get rid of the spirit of fear, which renders our gifts powerless and useless. We need to be connected with the heart of the Father. Eph. 5 tells us to awake, submit to one another in the fear of God- be real, honest, and transparent. What hinders the gift of God in you? SIN- transgressing the law of love. Let Jesus have first place, and let the gifts in you be released now. Anything that’s not love will take you out of what God has for you. Repent and live in repentance every day.

Go Deeper Down Into The Well
We are a possessing generation, but oppression will try to haunt those who need to possess. Rom. 5:17 says that those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through Jesus Christ. The righteous are bold, have the ministry of reconciliation, and don’t quit. We possess the Holy Spirit, the free gift of salvation and righteousness, and life by faith. God’s righteousness is revealed to us from faith to faith in the gospel of Christ. If we know who we are, we won’t give into strife, gossip, jealousy, and sin. We won’t receive oppression and the spirit of fear, because we’ll know it’s our enemy. There’s a call on our lives to take possession. Don’t pet the devil. He wants to take you out of your reigning. Jesus already defeated Satan, and we have already won. We have a new family and bloodline. (Listen as Pastor Bob defines righteous and oppression.) There were many prophetic words given
Rom. 6:4. We ought to walk in this life by the glory of the Father, which is the Holy Spirit. Then we can walk in the newness of life. If we want to walk in revival, someone has to preach the Gospel. Listen as Pastor Bob gives many definitions of the word “revival”, from “the return from death to life” to “to recover from neglect or depression”. We are the ones to awaken the church. To do this, we must be being filled with the Holy Spirit, so that we will flow in the Holy Spirit, and He, the Holy Spirit, will flow from us. Living in the Spirit is fighting in a war. We must rely on God. There was ministry to those who wanted to be filled or “re-filled” with the Holy Spirit. (Other scriptures: Ps. 138:1-8; Eph. 5:14-21; John 7:37-39; Eph. 3:14-21; Deut. 30:19; Rom. 6:1-3.)
His Goodness Will Change You
Ps. 34:8-10 The Lord is good and blessed is the person who trusts in Him. Healing is a good thing, and God is not holding it back from you. If you’re not receiving your healing, God is not the problem. Don’t get comfortable with your mess. You must use faith with works, not having sin hanging onto you. If you seek Him, you should not lack any good thing. To receive His promises, you probably need to change. You need to repent. (Listen to the meanings of repentance.) What are the areas of your life, your thinking, that need to change in order for your behavior to change? Check up on your heart and make sure it doesn’t have anger, jealousy, unforgiveness, gossiping, lying, etc. in it. Repent (think differently) first and believe the Gospel, so you can pull what you need from the spiritual realm into the natural world. Ps. 27:13, 14; Rom. 2:4; Prov. 4:20-27; Mark 1:15; Mark 9:23.
Fervent Effectual Prayer
After a prophetic word and ministry time, Pastor Bob preached on James 5:13-20. He spoke prophetically about reaching back-slidden Christians, not letting the devil come into the church bringing schisms, offenses, and division, and having assignments to bring the gifts of the Spirit to others. To get there, prayer is needed to open the doors to push through the new thing. This prayer must be dynamic with a corporate anointing backing up the work and workers. We need to be persistent (Luke 18), stand when you have done all you can, ask for wisdom and apply it, and believe the Word and not our circumstances. The answer to prayer is linked to praise. James 1:2-7 tells us faith, patience, wisdom, and not doubting are keys to receiving from the Lord. The prayer of faith is always bold, confident, and has a peace that goes beyond understanding. Do not settle for anything from the devil, because it does not belong to you. Live in your covenant rights and fight. Faith always obtains the victory. There was also a time of praise and worship, prayer for Dr. Kandole and intercession for a young man in a coma.
Prophetic Conference Part 5b
Pastor Bob ministered prophetically and then shared: “In the Door of 2010 into the Advancement of God’s Kingdom”. We are drawing on God, and we need more and deeper revelation. He ministered the prophecy for CWI: supernatural favor to God’s faithful ones, seasons of natural and supernatural impartations, seasons of separation for many, and the moving of the Holy Spirit to understand the fear of the Lord.
Prophetic Conference Part 3b
Pastor Bob also preaches on the anointing and speaks prophetically about this new year and decade. It is a year of risks, a time of pushing in the realm of intercession, and of praying in tongues and expecting interpretation. He, Keith, and Mary spoke prophetically over individuals.
Having Faith In God’s Character and Heart of Mercy
Heb. 4:16; Lam. 3:21-23; Ps. 145:8; Ps. 86:15; Luke 1:50; Luke 18:35-43; Luke 17:11-19; Titus 3:1-8. We can give mercy to others, the desperate and distressed ones, after we’ve experienced His mercy and grace. God’s attitude is mercy and grace towards people in distress. God’s heart is merciful, and His mercies are new every morning. How do we experience His mercy? We go in reverence and worship and praise and thanksgiving into the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help others in need, and then we RECEIVE sozo (wholeness, safety, rescuing from danger and destruction, healing, salvation). Jesus Christ has already made us whole; receive in thanksgiving, praise, worship, and glorifying God. Connect with God’s whole covenant, just part of it. Enter into worship- on your own- of our awesome God.
Pruning: Love that Produces Fruit
John 15:1-17. In order to see increase and fruit, we must allow God to prune away our will and wrong desires and to be more individually and corporately connected and rightly aligned with Jesus Christ. Are we saying “yes” to Him and “no” to our self-will? Have we fallen out of love with Jesus and with others? To what degree are we loving people and sacrificing ourselves for them? Have we disconnected from His will- to love one another? Allow correction to be made in your heart. Walk in love and stay free of offense. If the Word isn’t producing fruit, are you in love with people? The service started with prayer and a word given by Pastor Bob. There was ministry to married couples near the end of the service.
Do Not Be Deceived
Pastor Bob gave many words of exhortation from the Lord to the church at this time. The words are a call to grow up, go up, and to hear Him by sitting in His presence. We are revived, awakened, and now it is time to take the fire to the nations and to the people around us. His text was Rom. 16:17-20. It is time to wake up and know the spirit of the people we are listening to- in the pulpit, on television, or on radio. Whatever is said must be from the Word. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit so we can be witnesses and representatives of Jesus Christ. Eph. 1:15-21 says that we need spiritual wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him… The enemy wants to deceive you, but you will get greater illumination by praying the Word and praying in the Holy Spirit. Ps. 119:129-131 tells us that His Word gives light. It separates what is emotion, flesh, and/or Spirit. Eph. 5:13 His light makes things visible and clear. We need to be wise in this world of deception.
Thirsty or Have You Had Enough
Pastor Bob gave many words of exhortation from the Lord to the church at this time. The words are a call to grow up, go up, and to hear Him by sitting in His presence. We are revived, awakened, and now it is time to take the fire to the nations and to the people around us. His text was Rom. 16:17-20. It is time to wake up and know the spirit of the people we are listening to- in the pulpit, on television, or on radio. Whatever is said must be from the Word. We need to be filled with the Holy Spirit so we can be witnesses and representatives of Jesus Christ. Eph. 1:15-21 says that we need spiritual wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him… The enemy wants to deceive you, but you will get greater illumination by praying the Word and praying in the Holy Spirit. Ps. 119:129-131 tells us that His Word gives light. It separates what is emotion, flesh, and/or Spirit. Eph. 5:13 His light makes things visible and clear. We need to be wise in this world of deception. Allow the Word to be sharp in you, so you do what He wants you to do and don’t listen to what is not truth and from the Word.
Esteem Others Greater Than Yourself
Did you ever connect helping the poor with healing? Listen as Pastor Bob uses scripture to show how esteeming others more than yourself changes the poor or needy person’s prosperity. (Poor and needy can be any person without the Lord Jesus Christ.) It also allows you to “put a demand on” God and to remind Him that He will deliver, preserve, strengthen, and sustain you on your sickbed. Ps. 41:1-3. Other scriptures: Phil. 2:1-5; I Tim. 2:1-4; John 15:12-14; I Cor. 10:24; III John 2; Prov. 28:27; Prov. 14:21; Prov. 19:17. Also: Pastor Bob gave a couple words and some testimonies were shared.
Fight for Victory
After a powerful time of testimonies, worship, and words having been given, Pastor Bob preaches on fighting for your victory. Listen as Pastor Bob shares his testimony. Scripture texts: I John 5:1-5; I Cor. 15:57; I Tim. 6:12; II Tim. 4:1-5.
Minister In Faith, Not By Feeling
People came to Jesus, often desperate for a miracle. Do not let someone’s rejection of your wanting to minister to him or her hinder you, but get your heart back and keep reaching out to people until you get 100%. Start with faith, not feeling. Draw closer to God and the anointing will increase in you. We must respect and honor the name of Jesus. He touched people. Prepare people to receive ministry by sharing testimonies of your healings and God’s blessings.
Contend For The Faith
There was ministry to people who are willing to go to a higher level of intercession. Pastor Bob preaches on faith. Nothing is impossible to those who believe. Faith enemies are doubt, unbelief, fear, lies. We must contend for the faith, sacrifice our bodies, and stand fast in one spirit, with one mind (the mind of Christ), and pray in the Spirit. Let the Word of God work in you to get rid of doubt.
National Healing Through the Outpouring of Revival
After the Lord gave several words, Pastor Bob preached on II Chron. 7:14. We, as the Body of Christ, are responsible for some of our nation’s hurts. We are to do the works He called us to as missiles. We are to focus on Jesus Christ, not on the circumstances. We are to spend time at Jesus’ feet in His presence and in His grace and work with God, not for Him. That’s when revival, returning to life, will come to bring national healing.
Don’t Break The Connection To Life
Using many scriptures, Pastor Bob preaches on how the Word and the Holy Spirit are on our side for our wholeness, but we have to fight and pay the price of reading and speaking the Word, eliminating negativity and doubt, and making sure we are not quenching the Spirit (I Thess. 5:14-22) or grieving the Holy Spirit (Eph. 4:22-5:7). The service ended by communion being served.
Jesus prepared His disciples for His resurrection by telling them what would happen. Regardless how things look, there will be a resurrection in our lives. The person you used to be before you were saved is dead. God wants to bring back the vision He has given you. Go by the Word and speak it. (Matt. 17:22-23; 20:17-19; 16:21-23; Luke 24:1-7; Col. 2:6-15; Rom. 10:6-9)
Compassion In Action
Pastor Bob preaches on Matt. 4:23-25 and Acts 10:38. We are anointed and given the mandate to demonstrate God?s power by doing the works that Jesus did and greater ones. Pastor Bob defines compassion as a manifestation of God’s love in action. We must go and release God’s compassion.
Stop Wavering In Your Faith
Listen to Pastor Bob preach on how not to waver in your faith. The hearing of the Word that brings faith must be applied with practice. Pastor Bob challenges us to put the Word in us and then practice it by what we say. What should we do when our words don’t match up with the Word of God? Listen and find out.
Created For His Glory Part 2
The glory of the Lord was evidenced before the preaching of the Word through Holy Spirit-given words, scripture, spontaneous song, and tongues and interpretation. Then Pastor Bob continued his sermon from April 6th about our being created for God’s glory. We are associated with Jesus, so we can experience His glory. We are granted, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit (Eph. 1:18; 3:14-19). We are being transformed in His glory. Listen as Pastor Bob preaches about the manifest glory of the Lord.
Created For His Glory Part 1
Pastor Bob gives many scriptures explaining “glory”. We are to glorify God in and with our bodies. Miracles are a manifestation of the glory of God. We are created for glory and representatives of heaven. God loves people!
