Declare: I am here to recover all. The church is here to recover all. The government of God is to increase and it cannot be held back!
Fix your gaze upon Jesus!
Pray like you are the apple of His eye
Pray like a warrior endowed with splendour
We are in the midst of resurrection, restoration and recovering all
The Second Exodus
Exodus12:36 “The Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they gave them what they asked. And they stripped the Egyptians [of those things].”
John11:41-43 “41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 Yes, I know You always hear and listen to Me, but I have said this on account of and for the benefit of the people standing around, so that they may believe that You did send Me [that You have made Me Your Messenger].
43 When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! 44 And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face. Jesus said to them, Free him of the burial wrappings and let him go.
We are praying according to the teachings that have come forth from Reverend Betty; we are in the midst of a second exodus. As we maintain the posture of resurrection, we are going to recover all. We are praying for ourselves as individuals as well as the corporate body. We tend to settle for survival instead of living. Survival does not bear fruit. It is selfish and self-centred. You have to go through resurrection for the sake of your brothers and sisters.
In Exodus 12:36 we see the children of Israel taking what belonged to them. They had literally built Egypt. We are going to go from resurrection to restoration. Many of us stop at resurrection but do not move to take spoil or to have everything that was lost restored to us. We settle for survival.
John 11:41-43 we see the moments surrounding Jesus’ resurrection of Lazarus. If Jesus had
allowed the grave clothes to remain on Lazarus, he would have been resurrected but not restored. He would not have borne fruit. People went on to believe not only because of the resurrection but because Lazarus was bearing fruit and living a restored life; perfect, lacking nothing.
He wasn’t sympathy revived but he had to finish the purpose of his life. Restoration means you occupy and in the church right now many have stopped at being resurrected. They will still make heaven but not with fruit. We are called to bear fruit that remains.
Finishing the Work
John 17:3-4 “3And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You down here on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do.”
Lazarus did not bring God glory simply by being resurrected but also in going on to finish what God had given him to do. The church’s story is a government that not only arise but a government that increases without end. It’s a government that not only hears the sound of the abundance of rain but we pursue and we over take Ahab. Elijah went ahead of Ahab to Jezreel, where his inheritance was. Jezreel means the Lord plants. He went to where he was planted.
It is not enough for us to just have dreams but we have to bear fruit. There are dreams, novels, screenplays, songs, words of knowledge that have remained stagnant because many just want to survive. We don’t simply want to resurrect, we want to be restored.
Third Day Restoration
Hosea 6:2 “After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him.”
On the third day, the grave clothes have to be removed or you can walk and see. We can’t be dead men walking. Without restoration there will be an essence of godliness but people cannot see the manifestation. If our mouth and eyes are bound, how will we bring deliverance to the world? In certain places that is where the church is. We have beautiful names and gifts. However it is not about the gift but about the one behind the gift.
Come out the grave with spoil, purpose, hope, the power to raise the dead. We pray for the church and for individuals. Looking at Hosea 2, if we stopped at the second day, we would not be living in His presence. We need to be renewed and established. There are churches, ministries and families that are revived but not restored. They are stagnant because there is no presence.
Lift up your voice and declare that you want to walk in renewal and restoration
Lift up your voice on behalf of the church
Declare resurrection is mine; this is my second exodus
We declare over BKIM resurrection, restoration and expansion
Pray for the Fivefold and the layman; that every obstruction will be removed
Loose dreams, ideas and creative miracles in the church; resurrection and 3rd day restoration
We pray for revival that leads to restoration so we can live in His presence
We remove the grave clothing of self and pride; we demand our freedom, release and salvation
Bone to Bone, Sinew to Sinew; we release this sound over the Body of Christ that the church would move in fearlessness and power
Unity is not a fad; it is God’s heart on the earth right now. Restoration cannot be done in isolation.
Jesus was the one that called Lazarus out of the tomb and commanded him to be loosed. It then took the involvement of those around Lazarus to remove the grave clothes from him. The purposes of the church cannot be fulfilled in isolation, we have got to loose.
Lock arms and prophetically contend in oneness of Spirit
Contend for each other and for the church
Be let loose church and go!
Your voice in the places of power is now!
Contend! We the church shall spring up, we shall blossom, we shall grow.
Businesses are going to blossom
For the church, expansion to the left and to the right!
God is doing something new; embrace it perceive it, love it, eat it, drink it
The sign you are resurrected is that you walk in a new identity. If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old has passed away and everything is new. After the Jubilee is established, He says He will give you a new name; no longer deserted. Reverend King has taught us about becoming the New Jerusalem. Mary Magdalene did not recognise Jesus Christ in the Garden because He had been made new.
Lift up your voice and declare that you will bear your new name with a fearless determination
That there would be a fire deep within that burns and contends because your Father who is in Heaven contends for you
Refuse to remain quiet; God said He will not remain quiet for Jerusalem’s sake
That the church would bear a name that is true
That the church would be clothed in splendour and possess the land.
Luke 9: 26-36 “26 Because whoever is ashamed of Me and of My teachings, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in the [threefold] glory (the splendour and majesty) of Himself and of the Father and of the holy angels. 27 However I tell you truly, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God. 28 Now about eight days after these teachings, Jesus took with Him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
29 And as He was praying, the appearance of His countenance became altered (different), and His raiment became dazzling white [flashing with the brilliance of lightning]. 30 And behold, two men were conversing with Him–Moses and Elijah, 31 Who appeared in splendour and majesty and brightness and were speaking of His exit [from life], which He was about to bring to realization at Jerusalem.
32 Now Peter and those with him were weighed down with sleep, but when they fully awoke, they saw His glory (splendour and majesty and brightness) and the two men who stood with Him. 33 And it occurred as the men were parting from Him that Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is delightful and good that we are here; and let us construct three booths or huts–one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah! not noticing or knowing what he was saying.
34 But even as he was saying this, a cloud came and began to overshadow them, and they were seized with alarm and struck with fear as they entered into the cloud. 35 Then there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, My Chosen One or My Beloved; listen to and yield to and obey Him! 36 And when the voice had died away, Jesus was found there alone. And they kept still, and told no one at that time any of these things that they had seen.”
This is an invitation; the church is being invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. When Jesus says some, it is whosoever will have ears to hear and eyes to see and be the ones that will step out.
How thirsty and hungry are we?
What happened on the mountain top was both glorious and sad. An invitation for revival, awakening and a breakthrough had gone out. We want the glory of God to come on our terms and if it doesn’t fit our model, we are sleeping. The opportunity is there but who is willing to go the extra mile and look beyond what they know to get what Heaven is ready to release.
You can be in the midst of revival and yet utterly oblivious to the conversations of Heaven. You can be present but not part of things. A little slumber, a little folding of the arms and poverty comes upon you like a bandit. They missed the conversation of divinity.
Peter wanted the glory on his terms. He wanted to lock up and control what didn’t cost him. What would have cost him, he was sleeping through. The encounter was for them, Jesus’ identity was already affirmed. It was to give Peter, James and John identity. In the end God found nobody who would intercede so His own righteous right hand worked righteousness for Him.
We pray that the sleeping church would not miss the revival that is now. We are not praying for revival to come; it is already happening. Don’t fall in love with revival but not the Man of the revival; don’t fall in love with simply the concept of loving God but not the lover Himself. When we truly fall in love with Him, He demands more than we want to give but there is grace to sustain us.
The call for glory goes to all but who will respond? Being invited is not the end. The pursuit does not stop after the word or the song ministration, it is an eternal thing. We love the idea of prayer but how ready are we for His entrance. How prepared are we to be disturbed and for our theology and doctrine to be destabilized. The devil is not holding revival; the Bride is holding back the revival. If we can hasten the coming of the Lord, we can also hold it back.
Many of us want for to be shut up in our bones but we can’t contain fire; it needs to be released.
Either He is Lord of all or Lord of nothing. Are we sleeping through the conversation of Heaven and through the garden moments? Be like David and say sleep will not come to my eyes until I establish the ark of your strength and might.
How desperate are we to kiss the Son?
No more folding of arms
No slumbering, complacency, compromise or sleeping
No more compliance; if it is resisting us tonight pluck it out oh God
It is not enough to be invited, we want to get a strategy and master plan from the Master Builder
We want to discern the times and the seasons
Father we call upon You for Your resurrection power
Elijah spoke to You on the mountain as one who had ascended in the old covenant
Lord we claim ascension in You today
We want to be unbound; unbind our hands, feet and eyes
We move beyond our present situations; beyond time, limitations and boundaries and the parameters that have been set
The vision You are showing me for my life is the one that is to be achieved and delivered
We want to come before you having fulfilled everything you have destined
No destiny unfulfilled, no grace unused. Lord we accept what you want to do in our lives, speak to us.
We say “Yes Lord”
Fire Against Witchcraft
Jeremiah 23:29 “Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?”
Now you know who you are, we are going to use violent faith to unlock certain forces that would try to hold back your destiny. The devil is not a gentleman. You cannot sit down for the devil. We are going to call on the power of God. Without His power, nothing we do will have any effect.
When you are praying for all your enemies to catch fire, you are praying the word. Tonight, we are going to pray for our enemies to catch fire. Witched come fully prepared to carry out the act. They don’t come to negotiate or deliberate. In the body of Christ today there are witches sent into churches.
