Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

JOIN THE RANKS
After these things, I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying,
Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honor, and power, unto the Lord our God:
I took notes during Pastor
Allan’s sermon and present a digested message here.
Pastor was speaking, - - God
is stretching you, not to break you, but to cause you to stand tall.Focus on Jesus because the enemy would desire
you to stumble.
Each person has a purpose, no
matter your age.I was 12 years old and
someone prayed with me about my spiritual condition, and I will never forget
Reach out to the young, give
them a kind word and encourage them to follow Christ.
1:7The fear of the Lord is the
beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
God can save anybody, no
matter where they are in life.I can
love you, but I do not need to agree with your lifestyle.The Bible is clear about many things.It lays out for us our responsibility to walk
in obedience to the truth. Receive the Word and follow according to its
Our job is to personally be
ready.I am reminded of the stewardess
on the airline giving her speech about administering oxygen in case of
emergency.Tend to yourself first and
then help your child.Before we can help
others, we must prepared our-self first.
God desires to redeem our
land and take back what was lost; but an army is required; an army who will
follow the leader in obedience.
The prophet Ezekiel tells how
God set him in a valley full of dry bones.God asks, “Can these dry bones live?”Ezekiel was puzzled, and replied, “Only you know Lord.”God told him to begin to prophesy to the
bones to live, and to prophesy to the breath, and to the four winds.Call forth life and breath and they shall
God explained these dead
bones were like people who are discouraged, and lost in sin.They are dead spiritually, but it is possible
for them to receive New Life, when you use your prophetic voice.
James 2:14 reminds us that
faith without works is dead, and both are necessary to survive.
God speaks – and it is time
to listen and then step out and join the ranks of His army.
Our generation is being
restructured.If we are not careful, we
bounce around here and there instead of getting stable and mature.It is time to face up and grow up.
John chapter 14 tells about
Lazarus being dead and in the grave.It
had been four days, so the body was stinking.Jesus called him forth, and he came out walking.
We need to prophesy to our
Lazarus generation to come forth and join the ranks.
People coming in here to our
church, often have bondage holding them down.They are wrapped in stinking grave clothes.God is in the setting free business and
desires them to join the ranks.He wants
to restructure, and regenerate our attitudes.
A few years ago the Jesus
movement, moved mightily among the hippy youth.They came side by side to become one.We had better be ready to accept a new army and come join the ranks with
It is critical to take
personal responsibility and there are openings for volunteers.
Each of you can go places
where I cannot go.Allow God to use you
daily as you join the ranks.Take up
your authority for your generation.
Every one of us were dead in
our trespasses, but here is the deal; if we have the ability to raise one
person, we can prophesy over the dead in us and in others, by speaking life.
I proclaim this city shall be
restored and no longer a laughing stock.That it will receive life for death in the great exchange.
There is no reason why God
cannot work in our parks, and habitants.The problem is we become territorial and protecting.We must loosen up and become community.
What has God told you to
do?Have you done it yet?
It is time to gear up and
join the ranks.Be accountable and take
Society in our country is at
its worst and it is time to rise up as an army and prophesy to the dead bones.
