Newsletter dated, October 7, 2015
Dear Builders, Standers, and Advancers:
Blessings to you as you progress into the new! The Lord impressed me to send a 52-Day Prayer Focus to help us begin this incredible year ahead. From a prophetic perspective, this is the year of Ayin Vav – 5776. For revelation’s sake, so that we build as God instructed us, the year begins at Rosh Hashanah. You then proceed with revelation from Rosh Hashanah and cross over into a fullness of the year at Passover.
Whether you participate in God’s covenant time frame and build around Feast Times of 5776, or whether you remain in the Gregorian Calendar, by 2016 you are in the year of “6”. Therefore, we must understand the year ahead, the year of “6,” in a “Season of Seeing and Developing New Vision”.
When Norma Sarvis was here for our Head of the Year 5776 Celebration, she spoke from the book of Nehemiah. While she was speaking the Lord said, “Arise and build and start the year by establishing a foundation of strength that will allow you to enter the gates of the mission of your future!”
Beginning today, for the next 52 days we will ARISE AND BUILD! Starting today (October 7) I will initiate these 52 days. Don’t miss interacting on a daily basis with the LORD and those that He is calling you to build with, during this season. Begin now to pray, decree, and advance! You can follow us on Facebook on a daily basis, or we will send out a portion of prayer focuses every week that you can print off and put in your Bible. (Note: please check Chuck Pierce’s Facebook page for daily prayer updates)
What is the Overall Year About?
This will be an interesting year! Nations will align with God or against Him! Babel will begin to shake! This is a year that God sends His Word from Heaven to pummel the Gates of Hell. This is the year of us holding the “VAV” while His “hammer” Word breaks open gates that have been held shut. We must release the captivity in our bloodline from the past and unlock our future! This is a year that the Kingdom force will be applied in the earth realm. God’s Kingdom people will confound the enemy and plunder resources!
This will also be a year of supernatural giving to secure the five remaining years of this 10-year season. God’s people will go up to the high places to worship and overthrow ruling thrones. This is a year that new leaders will arise in civil arenas.
Many people say that we are preparing for visitation. However, this is a year of visitation to prepare us for the future. This will also be a year of the “moment.” He will visit you in the present to reconcile your past and unlock your future, in a moment!
This year is about the Word coming down from Heaven. When I was in New Zealand, something that was in the atmosphere for generations came down and was “vaved” in the earth. That connected all of our Native work in this land into a whole other land. I recognized this when we visited the Maori Marae (communal or sacred meeting place), and they said that one of their prophets four generations ago prophesied that a white haired man named “Eagle” would come and to receive him! This brought the Word of the Lord from the past into a reality today and unlocked our future.
This is also a year to understand how Babel rises up and that the enemy will be building his, as God is building on the Kingdom’s behalf. Remember, that this is a “six” year – a MAN year. So watch how man builds using his own strength. This is a year that you will wield the Word of God.
We have to confound the enemy at the gate so we can plunder what is ours! To do this, you can either come from a heavenly perspective OR you can be like David, and you “go up” at the water spout – from the earth into the place to surprise the enemy. You must ascend in worship, then descend in war, and go to the high places this year to get past the gates of the enemy’s “high place” and gain the spoil.
Are You Ready to Begin?
When it’s time for the NEW your focus should be: Am I PREPARED to wait until a full manifestation occurs?
To evaluate all new beginnings, ask yourself these questions:
1. Is the situation or circumstance you find yourself in causing you to question God’s heart and love toward you and making you RESIST your new beginning?
2. Is the enemy using your reaction to stop you from moving into God’s best?
3. Are you kicking against the “pricks” and attempting to move in a way that Holy Spirit is developing checks in your spirit? Are situations or circumstances creating roadblocks to STOP you from entering into a WRONG “new” beginning?
4. Is the situation or circumstance that is happening in your life initiating a chain of events leading to a new beginning? Sometimes one event in your life is a catalyst for many other things. Perhaps you have not seen the end of the thing that has begun to get you to your new place!
5. Is your situation or circumstance creating an offense that keeps you from advancing?
Let’s Begin by Connecting our Past to the Future!
This is a year when God takes your past, and brings it into the present.God is not in time like mankind. Therefore, He can go back in your past generations and set something before you that needs to be reconciled, or to unlock blessings that have been captured. If you are seeking the Kingdom first, then He knows you will deal with whatever issue He sets before you.
We must gain strength by restoring joy, so we can break old cycles. This is what Nehemiah told the people in Nehemiah 8. When the people began to weep after seeing their sin that led to captivity, Nehemiah told the people that it was not a time to weep. In verses 8-12, he instructed the people to first of all deal with the grief from their past.
Nehemiah 8:8-12 (NKJV) says: So they read distinctly from the book, in the Law of God; and they gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading. And Nehemiah, who was the governor, Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, “This day is holy to the LORD your God; do not mourn nor weep.” For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the Law.
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our LORD. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” So the Levites quieted all the people, saying, “Be still, for the day is holy; do not be grieved.” And all the people went their way to eat and drink, to send portions and rejoice greatly, because they understood the words that were declared to them.
We are Now at the Moment to Go Our New Way!
We are now ready to move past our past and into our future. That means we will come to an end of some things and begin other things. That also means that old cycles will attempt to hold us captive and keep us from breaking fully into our future. Therefore we must destroy some old patterns that would love to resurface in our life cycle. The Lord will give you a second chance to confront and deal with that thing that defeated you in the last season!
I am decreeing that you will go UP your mountain called ZION which will cause you to be favored with the Lord’s presence all year.Biblically, our life cycle is like a circle. You are on a boat rowing backwards into your future. Your past connects to your future. But your future is opening now into your cycle of victory. This allows all of your expectations in and of God to be fulfilled. I am declaring no more thorns will infest your ground. May every curse let go from deep inside your thought processes.
8 Days to Rebuild Your Strength! Over the Next Several Days, REGAIN JOY!
Day 1: Read Psalm 4 and 30. Meditate on Zephaniah 3. Hear Him rejoicing over you. Receive His love. Let Him pour His grace and mercy over you. Read Matthew 13. Ask the Lord to uncover the true joy of life to you. Let the joy of the Lord fill you. Praise Him that He is your source and the object of your joy. JOY is a positive attitude or pleasant emotion or delight. Joy includes gladness, contentment, and cheerfulness. Joy should be holy and pure. This joy rises above circumstances. Joy embraces the highest emotion of God and His character.
Day 2: Declare that the fruit of the Spirit, JOY, will manifest in your life. The joy required of the righteous person (Psalm 150; Philippians 4:4) is produced by the Spirit of God (Galatians 5:22). This kind of joy looks beyond the present to our future salvation (Romans 5:2; 8:18; 1 Peter 1:4, 6) and to our sovereign God, who works out all things for our ultimate good (Romans 8:28-30).
Day 3: Read and decree 1 Corinthians 12:26 and 2 Corinthians 6:10; 7:4. Joy is different from mere happiness. Joy can be found in the midst of grief. Read Luke 1-2. Rejoice! Ask the Lord to deliver you from grief or trauma. Thank Him that He has come to deliver you from any prison the enemy has devised.
Day 4: Memorize Proverbs 13:9 which says,”The light of the righteous rejoiceth,”literally, “is bright”. Joy is possible, even in the midst of sorrow Sameah means “to be bright or to shine.” Joy expresses His Glory.
Day 5: Read Psalm 16. “In Thy presence is fullness of joy; in Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11). Joy comes from the verb gil or gul. That means to go in a circle or to be excited, dancing around for joy, or rejoicing. In the New Testament, joy is linked with grace. Another word for joy is agalliasis. This word expresses exuberant joy or exultation.
Joy as a spiritual emotion is very frequently referred to in the Old Testament. Our spiritual interaction is conceived when we touch the deepest springs of emotion, including the feeling of exultant gladness which often finds outward expression in such actions as leaping, shouting, and singing. Declare that every religious spirit that is robbing your spiritual expression of joy will let go of you! May your communion with God be full and very expressive.
Day 6: Read Acts. 3. Ask the Lord to remove any spirit of infirmity that is holding you back from accomplishing His purpose. He is coming to the Gate Beautiful. Do something to express joy! Joy has a bodily expression. The Hebrew words mean “to spring,” “leap,” hence, “exult,” “rejoice”; rinnah, “shouting.” Joy is the response of the mind to any pleasurable event or state (1 Kings 1:40; Esther 8:17.)
Read John 2, Luke 10, and Mark 2. Rejoice! Clap your hands. Be willing to go into the fullness of joy. Do not stop participating halfway through the wedding feast. Ask the Holy Spirit to remove all of your religious ritual that has robbed your joy. Break any power of phariseeism. Thank God for the new wine.
Day 7: Read Luke 1:14, 44; Acts 2:46; Jude 24; Hebrews 1:9, Matthew 5:12, Habakkuk 3:18; 2 Corinthians 7:13. All of these verses will connect you into joy. Memorize two verses. Stand up and twirl. Express to the Lord that you love Him.
Day 8: Read Revelation 1-5 and 12. Receive strength to go through the open door that has been set before you. Declare the accuser of the brethren is bound. Receive power, wealth, and favor.
