Decrees to Release Revival and Restoration

God is doing AMAZING things throughout San Diego county! He has many people involved in various pools of worship, prayer, outreach and Holy Spirit is stirring things up in incredible ways! People love the outpouring of God's Spirit, but sometimes they don't realize the amount of prayer that is necessary over a long period of time to seed the heavenlies with declarations, petitions and praise in order to see the results manifest in our earthly realm. Prayer warriors have stood the test of time and NOW is the time for all their labor to release the birth of revival. God is in our midst NOW and the evidence of it is clearly seen!

It's important to stay consistent with our praise, worship, prayer declarations and encouragement of one another so that we continue to build momentum. We are only barely breaking through right now, and it's crucial to keep doing what we did to get this far!

My husband and I lead worship on Friday evenings at a place called THE BARN in Vista. It's unpolished. Unscripted. Kind of raw sounding, if you will, because we don't go with a plan except to allow Holy Spirit to have His way and 'do His thing.' We invite others to participate because NO ONE SHOULD BE ON THE SIDELINES! This is not just to observe! If we want to enter into and experience this move of God, we are going to have to learn to throw off the old ways of doing things. We are going to have to throw off our reservations about looking silly to others. I haven't danced in church in a long time, (which is really sad to say), but I often feel too restricted by thoughts of what others will think. Pride will stifle what God wants to do in you. You have to want God more than you want your pride! Yesterday heard a song called Revival that I hadn't heard since 2003 when I went to a Joyce Meyer convention. It lit a fire in me then and it did the same thing yesterday. (Look it up on you tube. It's really good!) I just couldn't help myself! It's a good thing my kids didn't see me because they would have been very embarrassed at the way their mom was dancing in public. HA!! See, that's what revival SHOULD be about. Getting revived in the presence of the Lord, and allowing Him to fill you with uncontainable joy!

When's the last time you felt that passionate about being in the presence of the Lord? If it's been a while, then you need to find a filling station and fill up, 'cause you're probably about out of gas and didn't even know it. Sometimes, you just don't know how badly you need a fill up until God flips a switch on the inside of you and all of a sudden you come alive in a fabulous, unexpected way! Friend, don't miss out. If you see God moving, get in the river. Run to the downpour. Get under the water spout and let Holy Spirit soak you in His presence. Because the reality is, if you continue to sit on the sidelines and just watch others, you're going to leave with regret because you allowed your pride or your ego to hinder you from experiencing more of God. Holy Spirit knows when we've rejected Him and we're unwilling to go any further. Those are the people that begin to be critical of those that have the fire and passion burning inside of them. Don't let that happen to you!

When we gather to worship, we start off with prayer declarations like the ones I have listed below. They are so powerful because when we declare using God's word, He releases angels to carry out His word. (Isaiah 55:11, Hebrews 1:7) The amazing thing is, everything we've already declared and things we're doing have all been confirmed by what we're hearing from other prophetic voices. I love it when God confirms His word! It's like Him saying, "YES! You're on the right track. Keep doing what you're doing!" Here are some decrees you can speak out over your city or geographic region so help break ground.

Are You Guarding the Wrong Treasure?

     For years I allowed anger, disappointment and unresolved hurt to keep me locked up in my pain. Lack of integrity and betrayal by those I should have been able to trust drove me to isolation, at least in part.  I kept people at a safe enough distance so that my heart wouldn’t be torn beyond repair when others failed to live up to my expectations. Disappointment in life was inevitable. I sought comfort in telling myself that no one was really worthy of my trust again.

     I thought I was guarding my heart so that it wouldn’t be hurt again, but I was wrong. I wasn’t guarding my heart; I was guarding the wounds that I had incurred. I was guarding the wrong treasure.  Somehow my perspective had gotten a bit twisted. The thoughts sounded logical as I made those silent vows in my heart. No one was going to get so close that I would get hurt like that again. I refused to allow myself to be vulnerable. And so, with hurt, offense and deep disappointment twisting my perception, I guarded the lie, guarded the pain and thought I could keep my heart safe. I trusted only myself. And yet, there I was. Unhappy, more than a bit jaded and bitter, and unable to pinpoint exactly the cause of my irritability and lingering heaviness in my soul. Day after day I couldn’t escape it. I was barely able to admit to myself that I was still in need of healing, because doing so would mean that I’d have to surrender the lies I had told myself, and the ones the enemy was still trying to get me to believe. “You can’t trust church people, you know. Christians are such hypocrites. They don’t live what they pretend to believe. You can’t trust God, either, because He could have protected you from what happened to you. He let you down. The only person you can really trust is yourself.  You don’t need them.”

     Only, the truth was, I did need them. Not necessarily the same exact people that wounded me, but I needed the body of Christ because of what was in them. I needed them because of WHO lived in them. The gifts of the Holy Spirit live in others, and it was those gifts that would make me whole again. Somehow, the shell I formed around my heart did in fact protect me from going down a rabbit hole of self-destruction, but after a period of time I realized that God was lovingly encouraging me to allow Him to remove it. I needed to surrender the judgments I’d made about others with a broad brush, lumping all the disappointments in to one category. I needed to learn how to take baby steps to integrate myself with others again, and trust God to work through them to bring healing and restoration. I didn’t want to, but the condition of my heart depended on my willingness to confront my fears and insecurities, and cast them down. I had guarded the wounds as if they were treasure, when in fact my heart was the treasure. The Holy Spirit was the treasure. The Anointing was the treasure. The calling on my life and future was the treasure. Those were the things I should have been guarding, but somehow the lie became more believable and I just accepted it as the truth. And so, I guarded and protected the lie and allowed the real treasure to be taken into captivity. And my soul became chained. My spirit caged. My heart broken. I was hemorrhaging spiritual power. I was bleeding out and it hadn’t even occurred to me that’s what had been happening. Maybe you’ve found yourself in a similar situation. If so, please keep reading.

     Caught between a rock and a hard place, I chose to fall upon The Rock and confront the hard places in my own imaginations. If I didn’t choose life, my soul and spirit would eventually die from my wounds. I felt like my spirit was suffocating. I needed to be able to breathe again. With a heartfelt gasp I cried, “Lord, I chose life. I want to live! Forgive me for judging Your body – and You. I forgive those that hurt me, just help me heal. Give me the grace to trust again. Lead me to those that You know are safe. Lead me to those that You have chosen to be a part of my healing and restoration, in Jesus name.”

And He did.

Lies we listen to:

Lie: I don’t need to go to church. I can work through this on my own, just between me and God.

Truth: God puts truth, answers, love, healing and anointing in His vessels. Those things are designed to have a purpose in our restoration and healing. We were never created to be separate from others, but integrated into one another’s lives. We were designed with relationship in mind. We do need others because we are 'the church.'

Lie: I can have friends that aren’t religious (or live with Christian values) that can satisfy my need for relationship.

Truth: We don't need religion, but we do need Christ. He is the light, the truth, our Healer and Restorer. God has specifically advised us through scripture that darkness has nothing in common with light. Neither the human spirit nor a worldly spirit or a new age philosophy can actually heal or restore a wounded soul. The Lord told us in John 8:32 that it is the Spirit of Truth that can lead us into truth and make us free, and that comes only from God’s Holy Spirit. We are also advised not to forsake assembling with one another, breaking bread with one another and having fellowship. Authentic, godly, loving relationships help provide balance, stability and nurturing in our lives that pave the way for healing and restoration.

Lie:  I can just focus on work, family and other things and I’ll be fine. Time heals all wounds.

Truth: Time does not heal our wounds. The evidence is everywhere. Look around. People everywhere are wounded and hurting because they have never received genuine healing for the grief and raw emotions that linger from unhealed wounds. It is not time that heals, but forgiveness towards those that have hurt and disappointed us. Until we choose to forgive those that have sinned against us can we heal. Perhaps someone offended us or did something much worse through unkind and unloving words and actions. I have had people that were acting on hell’s agenda to deliberately try to destroy me and my loved ones. It is hard to forgive another person’s intentional actions to cause pain, humiliation, and destruction – but it is possible. Fear, anger, anxiety, stress, and other worrisome thoughts can be the result of our own unforgiving heart that is plagued by demonic tormentors. The only way out of that prison is through the door of forgiveness. Many, many people have found their way out of spiritual and emotional prison. You can too.

     Friend, I pray that this has helped you. If you’ve been guarding the wrong treasure, I pray that you will make a divine exchange today and surrender your heart to Jesus. Ask Him to lead you to the people He has chosen to be a part of your healing. He knows your hurt and disappointment in those that didn’t live up to your expectations. He will heal you if you will just trust Him. It’s time to discard the lies. Your heart is not safe in your own keeping. It is only safe when you surrender it to Jesus and let Him take care of it. Choose life. Your heart is the greatest treasure that you could ever offer to the Lord, and I promise you that He will guard it as the treasure it is. Let Him restore your hope and your heart, because the truth is, there are many wonderful people out there that are worth letting in to your life.

Stay Focused!

There are so many wonderful things going on in San Diego County right now. Not just wonderful things, but spiritual things. God's Holy Spirit is definitely moving across denominational lines, cross pollinating with various influences as His body enjoys fellowship and ministry with one another. It seems that everywhere we look, there are now a variety of gatherings in multiple places on a variety of different topics, all designed to enrich and grow the body of Christ.

When God's Spirit begins to move in a greater way, it goes without saying that the enemy will rise up to try to stop all the great things that are happening. When ever the Kingdom of God advances, Satan feels threatened and will look for ways to shut down the progress and quench the Spirit of God. 

One of the first things the enemy will tempt us to do is to formulate judgments against others in the body of Christ. There can be a multitude of reasons, but please just allow me to draw your attention to the temptation so that you can recognize it and shut it down before it goes anywhere. 

You're walking out of a meeting you didn't really enjoy...

You hear something negative about someone else and feel tempted to repeat it...
Someone did something that offended you, and you want to vent about it...
A twinge of jealousy and competition rears it's ugly head...
You feel forgotten by the Lord and frustrated...
Others didn't do things the way you thought they should be done.

And before you know it, negative words escape out of your lips. It's bad enough when you say it in private. It's much worse when you say it to someone else, and here's why.

"Don't bad mouth your leaders, not even under your breath, and don't abuse your betters, even in the privacy of your own home. Loose talk has a way of getting picked up and spread around. Little birds drop the crumbs of your gossip far and wide." Message Bible, Ecclesiastes 10:20

Proverbs 6:16-19 in the Message Bible says this:

"There are six things God hates, and one more that He loathes with a passion:

Eyes that are arrogant,

a tongue that lies,
hands that murder the innocent,
a heart that hatches evil plots,
feet that race down a wicked track,
a mouth that lies under oath,
a troublemaker in the family."

God really, really dislikes trouble making in any form. Sometimes even good people don't realize that the enemy may be tempting them to say the wrong thing. We've all been there. Something comes out of our mouth and we immediately want to snatch those words and shove them back in our mouth. We're human and we make mistakes. But, Nehemiah 4:11 reminds us of the enemy's intent. He always looks for a person that can be used as his pawn. He looks for weaknesses to exploit, and someone that can be easily offended or manipulated to be used for destructive purposes. When people were working in unity to rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem, the enemy - working through a couple of influential people - made this statement: 

"And our adversaries said, "They will neither know or see anything, till we come into their midst and kill them and cause their work to cease." NKJV

Satan's objective is still the same: cause the laborers to become discouraged, weary and interrupt their unity of heart. Nehemiah's advice then and our wisdom now is not to allow the enemy to intimidate anyone. Don't let other people's words or even your own renegade thoughts become a distraction. The work of the Lord is far too important. Stay focused on whatever the Lord has given to you as your assignment, and remember to pray for God to continue to expand His kingdom and bring about His designed purpose. He will fight for us as we do, and whatever the enemy has planned to try to interrupt, divide and stop the work will come to nothing.     

When God does something new, people can tend to question a lot of things. Jesus himself said that a person can't sew a new patch on an old cloth because the fabrics weren't the same. He was making an illustration to the new fitting in with the old. He also said that people used to drinking old wine wouldn't necessarily find new wine very appealing. They wouldn't want it because they were used to something else. When God does a new thing, it is often those that are comfortable with the old form that aren't comfortable with whatever or whoever God brings on the scene. God is not into old forms. One thing I know about this new move of God is that He is using new faces, those that have been hidden in caves and those that have been feeling sidelined. This move of God is for His body to find their place and become effective and fruitful. No one will be able to own it. Past moves of God have been shut down by those that have tried to control what God was doing or they spoke against it, creating negative judgments, offense and unbelief in others. There is so much that could be said on that topic alone! My point though, is to be alert and aware of these things so that we all recognize our own little 'hot buttons' and not fall prey to the enemy using our mouths to try to discourage others from participating in or enjoying the variety of things God is doing in our midst. UNITY allows Holy Spirit to flow unhindered. 

Psalm 133 says this:

"Behold, how good and precious it is for the brethren to dwell in unity!  It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, Aaron's beard, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing - life forevermore." 

 "Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor." James 3:17,18 Message Bible

As we learn to develop a greater sense of community with one another, it's important to recognize the growing pains. We may not all see eye to eye on a lot of things, but we can enjoy the fruit of our labors together as we exalt the Lord Jesus. It's His kingdom, after all, and He will built it His way. Your kingdom come, O Lord, and Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Possessing the Gates

God has given us incredible promises to enable us to triumph over our enemies, but we all know that when fighting for a victory, it doesn’t necessarily come easy. War is war, is it not? When you’re contending for a victory it’s going to take a dedicated effort to persevere until you see it manifest.

There is a specific promise that God has been speaking to me about recently. It’s found in Genesis 24:60. Abraham’s servant went in search for a bride for Abraham’s son, Isaac. Holy Spirit led the man to just the right woman and she agreed to come back with him to be Isaac’s wife, but before she left, her family, household servants and friends gathered together to pronounce a blessing upon her. This is what they said: “And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them.” (Genesis 24:60 KJV)

It sounds very similar to what God told Abraham years earlier, when He promised a miraculous birth to an older, infertile couple. “I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her." (Genesis 17:16)

The promise was repeated again in the life of Isaac’s son, Jacob. “I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies…” (Genesis 22:17)

Allow me to call your attention to the word ‘Gates’ in Genesis 24:60. The promise to multiply and be fruitful is one part of the promise, but possessing the gates of enemies is quite another. Some translations say ‘take over the affairs of the city.’ The gate was where all the central activity of that city occurred. Judicial matters and court settlements occurred at the gate. The gate of the city was also where business transactions took place and messages were heralded. If a person wanted to deliver a message that would reach the masses, they announced it at the gate. It was the center of marketplace activity as well. A gate, also referred to as a door, is an entrance or an exit into something greater. One way we take authority over the gates of our lives is to shut the enemy down and close any potential doors that he may be using to access our lives. God wants to heal your family tree. He longs to restore generational blessings that have been held back or tied up in your generational line.The enemy works through our blind spots - things that he sees as something that grants him legal access to our lives, but things that we don't realize actually exist. Close the doors the enemy has been using to rob you of joy, steal what belongs to you, and plunder your blessings. Possess the gates! Close the open doors so that your restoration can be unlocked! Our Breakthrough Prayer is a great way to help with that. (see link on right side of the home page).

God’s intent is to give us far more victories than what we might imagine! His desire is to give us strategies to take authority over whatever mountain may stand in our path. His desire to is help us possess the gates of commerce, the gates of trade, positively influence the gates of education, politics, our city gates where important decisions are made and so many more. How can we possibly try to take authority over bigger enemies if we can't take authority over the gates of our personal life? We must start with ourselves. God has already given us a promise that it’s His desire for us to overcome what ever adversary stands opposed to the things that pertain to fullness of life. Whether it’s a health issue, an issue with someone on the job, enemies in the natural such as ISIS or even our own government agencies implementing corrupt policies; God wants us to exercise our God-given dominion so that the Kingdom of God is manifested in that situation. As God’s children we declare His kingdom come, His will be done – on earth as it is in heaven.

I was talking to a woman the other night that was struggling in her work environment. She mentioned that there were members of a witches’ coven in her workplace. When I asked where she worked, it was a very prominent place. Important decisions that affected everyone in our nation were made in the very place she worked, and that was where the enemy had his people in place. It didn’t surprise me, but it did jolt me awake a bit to realize that we too, as God’s ambassadors, need to be on our toes all the time, declaring God’s kingdom in all of our circumstances. We need to declare His word over all the power of the enemy so as to ‘possess the gates of our enemies.’ Friends, don’t let evil go unchecked. Set down the boundaries established by the Lord in His word. Find the scriptures that speak to your particular situation and enforce the King’s Law – in your home, workplace, and community. Never underestimate the power of your declarations! You never know what evil you stop in it’s tracks by doing so. And, by doing this, you make room for the Kingdom of God to burst in to your circumstances!

Prayer Declaration to Unravel Evil Plans

I ask You, Lord, to set up safety and protection for all those that come under the umbrella of my prayer. I pray for myself, my family members, as well as those in my city. For Your namesake, O God, we ask that You remember the sacrifice Jesus paid on our behalf and deliver us from the hand of our enemies. Deliver us from those who plot evil and conspire wicked plans we pray. Father, hear our petition and grant us victory over those that would attempt to bring pain, destruction and torment to others. Help us to advance from victory to victory, crush the wickedness and oppression of our enemies, and establish Your justice among men and among nations.

Therefore, In the name and authority of Jesus Christ, I ask You to send your warrior angels to bind the strongmen of Lust, Fear, Pride, Rebellion, Religious Zeal, Jealousy, Vengeance, Rape and Murder over the United States of America, it's citizens, the city of _______ and the State of _________. As a blood-bought child of God, an heir to the Kingdom of God, and Your ambassador sent to establish Your kingdom on earth, I forbid all evil spirits that energize and give power to religious zealots as well as a spirit of terrorism from rising up. I bind the spirit of rape, fear and terrorism. I command these evil spirits to be silenced, impotent and paralyzed in the authority of Jesus name. I ask that You send Your angels to bind up and war against demonic spirits in the heavenly realms. Father, You said in Your word that what we allow on earth is allowed in heaven, and what we forbid, or bind, on earth is already bound in heaven. There is no terrorism, rape, murder, or religious vengeance allowed in heaven therefore it is not allowed here on earth. Father, I am grateful that You are bound by your word to uphold this decree, because You are faithful to honor Your word. It is written in Matthew 18:18-20, "Truly I say to you that whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Again, I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or more of them are gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."

I declare the name of Jesus Christ over my family, my neighborhood, and the citizens of my city. I declare Jehovah Nissi is our victory and Jehovah Shammah, the Lord is present. I declare the name El Shaddai over this land, for He is the God that is mighty and He is our sustainer. I declare the name El Elyon over this land, for He is exalted as the MOST HIGH GOD. He is exalted as the Sovereign One. I declare Jehovah Saboath over this land, for He is the Lord of Hosts of angelic armies.I declare the name of El Gmulot, for He is the God of recompense and the one who spoils the plans of the enemy. I declare JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OVER ISIS/ISIL, ALLAH, AL-QAEDA AL NUSRA, KHORASAN, VENGEANCE and TERRORISM. I command every enemy and terrorist group to bow to the name of Jesus Christ.

I declare that anger, fear, rage, vengeance and the spirit of murder along with all the works of the enemy must be interrupted and unraveled now in Jesus name. Father, I ask that You provide increased safety and protection to women and children. Let them be sensitive to listen and heed the promptings of Your Holy Spirit and ministering angels that guide them away from evil.

In the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, I hereby release a decree against all ungodly altars and evil thrones. In Your law, Father, it is written in Deuteronomy 12:2-4, "You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess serve their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. It is also written in Deuteronomy 7:5, Exodus 34:14, Leviticus 26:30 and Numbers 33:52 that we, Your people, are to tear down ungodly altars and destroy the high places where evil thrones rule.

Therefore, as a representative of Your kingdom, I command all meeting places where evil spirits are glorified must be undone immediately. Father, let evil thrones be dismantled by Your angels, for demonic spirits energize those with a desire to carry out evil plans.

Let your angels bring confusion and turmoil to those that try to partner with those that conspire evil. Let the enemy and all adversaries be set upon themselves in confusion, so that they cannot communicate, form plans or strategize, in Jesus name, according to Genesis 11:7-9, 1 Samuel 14:20 and Judges 7:22.

Let the plans of the enemy be spoiled and the name of Allah be put to shame. Let principalities and powers be spoiled, according to Jeremiah 51:56 and Col. 2:16. Let the God of recompense, El Gmulot, destroy the works of evil in Jesus name.

Let those that worship false gods lose interest in them and turn to the One and only True God, Jesus Christ. Let them repent of their evil ways and pledge their allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Let all those that practice evil and conspire against others lose all power and effectiveness to carry out their plans, in Jesus name.

I thank You, Father, for releasing angels to carry out the fulfillment of this prayer. Thank you for setting up a hedge of protection around the unsuspecting, the innocent and those that would pray against evil. Thank You for Your promise of protection that no weapon forged against us shall prosper, and for your promise of safety in Psalm 91. Cover us with Your wings, O God, and hide us from the plans of the enemy. In Jesus name, amen.
