Greetings in the name of the One who unites, Jesus. The weather is warming up here in Middle Tennessee, and things are beginning to happen all around. There is an old saying about March, “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” I believe we are destined to see Jesus roar this month. The way He roars on earth is through those who will give voice to His Word and yield to His Spirit. The roar of the Lion leads to the peace of the Lamb.
You very well may need Jesus to roar in this season of your life to bring peace, and I’m here to tell you He is ready if you will believe. We are united as one with Christ Jesus when we allow Him to come into our hearts. Therefore, we have received everything that belongs to Him, mainly His authority and ROAR!
“I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as You have loved Me.” —John 17:23
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also glorified together. —Romans 8:16-17
Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. —Luke 9:1
Now, don’t let religion tell you that Luke 9:1 is only for those twelve disciples. If that was so, then the Apostle Peter lied when he said, “I perceive that God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34). No, this same authority has been given to every disciple who will believe and act in faith upon this Word. The faith comes by hearing the Word. The more you hear the Word, the more your assurance will be built up in that Word. This gives you the substance, courage, and boldness to do what the Word says you can do, and have, for yourself, the promises of healing, deliverance, supply, and peace established in the Word.
When you proclaim and decree the Word, you set angels into action. But don’t expect the angles to do all the work, even though they are mighty in strength. You were created higher than the angels. You have been given the authority to carry and speak God’s Word. Therefore, you must lead your angels with your actions, believing with confidence what God said and what you say will come to pass.
Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His commandments, heeding the voice of his word. —Psalm 103:20
I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. —Psalm 2:7
You have made him for a little while lower [in status] than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands. —Hebrews 2:7, AMP
Let me clarify Hebrews 2:7: For “a little while” our status in the spiritual realm is less than the angels; however, right now, we have been set over everything that God has created, including the angels. Too often we hear God is in control, but that is not exactly a correct statement. God put Adam in control, but he lost it to Satan, and then Jesus restored it back to us. God’s Word declares, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth He has given to the children of men” (Ps. 115:16).
The ole tree-hugging conservationists are correct about us being responsible for the earth. However, they try to do it in man’s power instead of God’s. They also need to realize that man’s spiritual condition is what affects the earth. It was cursed because of Adam’s sin (Gen. 3:17), and mankind’s sin continues to affect the earth today. Hence, the earth groans for the manifestation of the sons of God (Rom. 8:18-25).
What is happening in our lives or country is affected by the use of, or lack of, our God-given authority. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Therefore, everything we say or have said affects the course of things happening around us. Pastor James says it this way:
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell . . . Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. —James 3:6, 4:7-8
James also says in this chapter that no man can tame the tongue; however, submitting to God’s Spirit, yielding and speaking His Word, will cause the hellish antichrist agendas to be made null. No man can tame the tongue, but God can if you allow Him. It takes clean hands, meaning not being given to sin and having a pure heart towards God; it’s allowing Him to change you more into the image of Jesus (Rom. 8:29), and it’s a daily job!
We are united with Jesus and should be changing into His very likeness. This includes all His power made available by the Holy Spirit. All of this happens by believing. You can have anything the Bible says if you will believe that Word and act on that Word. It’s the same as when you got saved. You believed in Salvation, and you received Salvation.
In August, we will be preaching that very Word of Salvation here in Nashville. The Impact America Crusade with Tim Sutton Ministries will affect the lives of people here. As I announced last month, Prophecy & Promises will come alongside Evangelist Sutton for this crusade, and then another in Indiana, in October.
We want you to be a part of these crusades. We can use people for the ministry of helps and finances, who are a big part of these crusades. Never, ever forget prayer, much prayer! The crusade draws people in by giving away gift cards, appliances, bill pays, and cash. Salvation is free; however, it takes money to get that message out to the people.
We will reach the unchurched with praise and a powerful Word about the goodness of God with an opportunity to accepted Jesus. Remember what it was like when you first accepted Jesus? You can help make that happen for someone else and affect the Kingdom of God forever. Please contact me so you can find out more.
I do not usually make an appeal for finances, even though they are always needed in ministry. However, I’m believing that people will commit to a monthly gift of only $20 until October to impact these crusades and the people in the communities. A gift of any amount can help save a soul, so give as your heart desires. I have seen firsthand the results of these campaigns, and so has God. The people come for the giveaways, but many leave with something money can’t buy – the gift of Salvation from Jesus Christ!
Thank you for your continued prayers and regular financial support for this ministry. You make a difference only God may know until we get to heaven. You see, we are on our way to heaven! Michelle and I continue to pray that God blesses you and watches over you all the days of your life.
