Prayer Points After Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack – For Any Terrorist Attack

American Flag

These prayer points or topics fit any disaster or sadness in any part of the world. Today they apply to America and the terrorist attack at the 2013 Boston Marathon.

+Pray for the people and their families hurt in the – Boston Marathon terrorist attack (or any other similar event). Pray that they be comforted in Jesus and turn to God and not to anger against or accuse God.

+Pray that friends and neighbors would show the love of God to them, and especially with help for all the medical bills, life trauma and loss of income.

+Pray that Christians would go to them and heal their bodies and minds, and restore their limbs as Jesus commanded.

+Pray that their testimonies of divine healing be known so that the wicked will know that God is our Helper and our Healer.

+Pray that God give the investigators wisdom and knowledge to find who, why and where these people who did this and to apprehend them without further loss of life.

+Pray that those who did this terrible attack be blinded to further cooperation for hiding and doing more crime, that their work be thrown into confusion so that they can no longer work together, that their money and friends dry up, and that God send his hornets of the fear of the Lord to stop them from more evil, to turn themselves in, and to make restitution to all.

+Pray that all those who rejoiced in this attack repent and turn to God to walk as true peace makers of God in the salvation of Jesus.

+Pray that Jesus be exalted as Lord in the middle of all this terror so the devil does not dominate in terror, panic and irrational fear.

+Pray that America:

  •  See we need God enough to turn from our wicked ways.
  • That all Christians see their part in this from a lack of holiness and not continually seeking the Lord.
  • That God’s people, Christians’s and Jew, repent and turn ever more to the Lord.
  • That God’s preachers preach and demonstrate in power the gospel of reconciliation in Jesus (1 Cor 2:5).
  • And ask for mercy for the prophets of God who did not see and warn of this specific attack in advance so it could have been prevented.
  • That people do not get despondent or hopeless, rather they commit themselves to seeking and trusting God more.

What other things should we be praying right now?

+Pray that those who God warned before this attack take heed so they can learn to hear Him when He speaks.

+Pray that those who saw these criminals before the attack would have prayed and intervened and not just shrugged off the warnings of God.

+Pray that the Body of Christ would rise up with Holy Spirit gifts so that the police go to them and not the psychics to help in crime investigation.

+Pray that God’s Daniel Warriors and Seers would make themselves available to the investigators as the psychics are now doing.

+Pray that whenever two or more gather we pray 1 Tim 2:2-6:

1 Tim 2:2 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”

From Cindy Jacobs:

Pray for the exposure of any other possible bomb threats and/or terrorist attacks.

Pray that the Lord to give wisdom to the authorities as they take security measures to ensure the safety and protection of their cities. (Luke 12:2)

Pray for America. Ask the Lord for mercy on our nation and for Him to guard our nation with His mercy, peace and security. Declare that the hand of the enemy cannot touch this land! (Psalm 91)

Here is Dan 9:3-19 modified for our land now.

3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplication, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: 4 and I prayed unto the Lord my God, and made my confession, and said, Father, I come to You in the name and blood of Jesus, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; 5 we have sinned, and have committed iniquity (made money, pleasure, safety, the arm of man, apathy, indifference, entertainment and Mammon our strength and hope), and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments: 6 neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.

7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of our land, and to the inhabitants of our capital city – Washington DC, and unto all our people everywhere, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast sent them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee and been ignorant of Your laws and ways, readers and not doers of Your words. 8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, elected and appointed leaders, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

9 To You, O Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against You; 10 neither have we obeyed Your voice, the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in Your laws, which You set before us byYour servants the prophets. 11 Yea, all of us have transgressed thy law and fallen short of Your glory in Jesus, O’ God, even by departing, that we might not obey thy voice by seeking to walk just like Jesus in all things; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God and in Galatians 6 where You say:

Gal 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

… 13 As it is written that we will reap what we have sown to the flesh and not the Spirit: yet made we not our prayer before You, the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth in Jesus Christ. 14 Therefore hath You, the Lord, watched upon the evil, and could not stop it from coming upon us: for ou, the Lord our God, are righteous in all Your works which You doeth: for we obeyed not Your voice.

15 And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, that raised Jesus from the dead and raised us up with Jesus in spite of our sins and given us redemption in His blood, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.

16 O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let the devil’s anger and …fury be turned away from us: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, this land and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.

17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant who is a son by the new creation in Jesus, and my supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate in our hard hearts toward You, for the Lord’s sake. 18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the people which is called by thy name, Christians: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies in Jesus. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, You have forgiven us in the mighty work of Jesus, so release Your healing into Your people and this land; send Your healing word, embolden Your preachers and make the workers wise and willing; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for this country and for thy people who are called by thy name.

And Acts 4:24-31

Acts 4:24 “…they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: 25 who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 for to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings, rejection, mockery, ridicule, false humility, lies and terrors: and grant unto thy servants who are Your sons, that with all boldness we may speak thy word, 30 by stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

Now, Father, in the name of Jesus, shake this people to repentance and boldness in righteousness, peace, joy, power, love and sound mind in Holy Spirit so that we are all filled with the Holy Ghost, and we speak the word of God of Your grace in Jesus with boldness. So Father, in the name of Jesus, I say, devil, get your hands off God’s people, I break the yoke of offense, forgiveness and bitterness toward God and command it to go in the name of Jesus, and I command our inner man, created in righteousness and true holiness, to rise up and seek the Lord until we come to Him again, in the name of Jesus.

And Mark 16:15-20

And Father that we heed and obey the command of Jesus:

Mark 16:15 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

And Father, get us to obey these commands:

1 Cor 12:31 “But covet earnestly the best gifts [of Holy Spirit including words of wisdom, words of knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, working or miracles; prophecy, discerning of spirits, diverse tongues and interpretation of tongues]: and [use them to walk in] the more excellent way of agape/love.”

1 Cor 14:1 “Follow after charity, and desire (with faithfulness and intensity) spiritual gifts [as listed in 1 Cor 12], but rather (especially) that ye may prophesy.”

And Father get us to stir ourselves up into You, that we go forth, and preach everywhere, so that the Lord can work with us, and confirm the word of grace in truth, love, reconciliation, redemption, remission, gift of righteousness, sanctification, adoption, betrothal, access and mercy with signs following.  So that we preach through mighty signs and wonders that only You can do.  Amen.

God is no respecter of persons. His ways apply to all, all the time. If you do not see God move, the problem is not on the “God” end. But rest assured the devil will try to get you to blame God.

We are destroyed, walk in failure, fear and confusion, by lack of knowledge and lies, not some administrative decision by God.

God is no respecter of persons. Do the right things and you will get the right results; do anything different and you will be unhappy sooner or later. Digital Universe.

Evil works inspired and powered by the devil are no match for the Living God, but they sure tempt fleshly leaky neurons, even in those spiritually righteous.

There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are now making, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you.

It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

Keep Working the Word so God can Work!

God Bless You and Yours in the Name of Jesus to be more Noble in Him (Acts 17:11-12)

Jesus is Lord of Heaven and Earth!

How To Feast in the Lord – A Choice Made Thought by Thought

banquet table with food in place iStock_000001123922XSmall

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made.

Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

No, I am not Jesus, but what I do allows Jesus to be Jesus on the earth through me.

No, I am not God, but what I do allows God to be God on the earth like He was and is with Jesus through me.

So who are you allowing to enter the earth and be like they are? I keep working at believing God because I have been commanded to labor at believing. It is my primary job in the earth.

2 Cor 10:3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”

I am a believer that produces the Kingdom of God on earth. No results means no kingdom and therefore believing God by His Word was not happening. And I work at believing God from faith to faith and glory to glory.

And that means I feast a lot in the Word of God. Again and again.

That is the purpose of the +95% scripture Christ Affirmation Magnets in our books. Do not confuse this with grace versus works, we are commanded to work with the grace of God, Holy Spirit in you, the hope of God’s glory in the earth.

Prov 13:12-16
12 “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
13 “Whoso despiseth the word [of God] shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.
14 “The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
15 “Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
16 “Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge: but a fool layeth open his folly.”

But hope deferred makes the heart-sick, and if you are not manifesting God routinely like Jesus does, then your heart is sick and thus your mind needs renewing. And we are to manifest or release Jesus in fear and trembling to walk in the walk created for us in Jesus.

If Jesus spent 4-6 hours a day in the Scriptures, why not you?
If Paul spent 4-6 hours a day in the Scriptures, why not you?
If Jesus spent 1-4 nights a week in all night prayer, why not you?
If Paul spent 1-4 nights a week in all night prayer, why not you?
If Jesus rose a great while before dawn to pray, why not you?
If Paul rose a great while before dawn to pray, why not you?

And both Jesus and Paul did this before their ministry, as well as after. Because that was the life of righteous Jew per the directions found in the Old Testament.

Whose directions are you following?

Paul summarized it this way:

1 Thess 5:14-25
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesyings.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
25 Brethren, pray for us.”

If you cannot feast in the Word, at least drink it.

1 Peter 2:1 “Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”

If you are not walking like Jesus then your growth is stunted. Feast to grow.

You live 24 hours a day. If you are not eating by the Word of God, then you are eating by the word of the world. Digital Universe.

Matt 4:4 “But he (Jesus) answered (Satan) and said, It is written, Man shall not zao/live (to produce the manifestation of God into the earth) by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

If you are not doing the work assigned by God, then you are doing someone else’s work. Digital universe.

There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are now making, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you. It awaits you to manifest it by faith in God by His Word.

It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

Keep Working the Word so God can Work!

Breaking Free of Generational Curses

breaking chain iStock_000015306344XSmall

While there is much talk about this topic of generational curses, few seem to address some significant facts.

What are these “generational curses?” From the teaching I have heard it is believing that the miseries in our present life are due to curses invoked by previous generations. So there is deep searching to identify all the sins of our parents, grandparents, etc., to at least the 4th generation, if not the 2000th generation. Once these sins are identified, they then apply a series of remedies to “break the curses.”

There is a lot of activity, but significant results are few and far between.

This has created a cottage industry in previous generational analysis, books teaching this generational deception and supposedly getting free in week-long and week-end retreats and seminars.

It is very popular to blame others for the problems in our lives. Yet we are all promised to have troubles; it is how you respond to them that make the godly difference.

How to go over and list all their personal sins in their past up until now, is a wonder to me, much less my great grandmother’s. Not only that, but the cultural filters of our past means that we accept many sins as normal and right, and are not even aware of them. Add in the general scriptural illiteracy among Western Christians, and the task seems unprovable at best.

Remember the sins of lying, doubt, fear and unbelief have their part in the lake of fire and they usually do not have obvious outward expressions. Since these sins are just as deadly as murder and gluttony, who can keep a valid list? Yet this generational curse theology keeps being advertised as “the answer.”

Rev 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers (witchcraft), and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

There are generational problems and God has answers for us today that are biblical. First God addresses generational curses, or their misapplication that they are from God in Ezekiel 18.

Here are a few verses:

Ezek 18:1“The word of the Lord came unto me again, saying, 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.”

To get the full measure of this please go and read the entire Chapter 18. This whole chapter debunks the recent teaching on generational curses. “The father’s sins have set the children’s teeth on edge,” is generational curses. Here the false claim is that the children, descendents, are suffering due to the curses of the sins of the fathers. God specifically says assigning your troubles to the sins of your fathers is misunderstanding God’s principles and does not apply.  God is not sending any generational curses.

I guess because the people of Israel has such trouble giving up generational curses and dealing with their own sin instead, God repeats the message in Ezek 33.

Jesus addressed generational curses by not assigning them.

John 9:2 “And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”

Jesus said this birth defect was not the result of the sin of the man or his parents. So it was not a generational curse. Instead Jesus said that His job was to heal such and thereby be the light of the truth of God into the world.

In the Greek there is no period at the end of verse 4, this was added later. So it is just as accurate to read it this way, “…but that the works of God should be made manifest in him, 4 I must work the works of him that sent me….” Now Jesus is saying I found this problem and I must fix it to the will of God.

So there are no generational curses from God, and all attempts at generational curses are illegal before God. This is made clear in two major sections of the Bible, where people were complaining that the curse was coming on them due to the sins of their parents or ancestors.

Instead the message of the prophet is that there are generational blessings, where if they repented immediately of their own sins, they could break the curse here and now, yet they refused to acknowledge their own sins. And even if the current terrors came on others, they could live and prosper in the midst of them.

There are generational problems. There are cultures that have been in poverty for centuries. God is not doing this. If not God, how is the devil doing it? He does it by temporary and cultural sins. This is the process of making sin in any form an accepted part of your national heritage. The devil needs people to sin to keep his curses alive.

The same is true for us today. We may have inherited the cultural norms that allow and promote sin, but at any time we can repent and heal our land also.

2 Chron 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

That term “wicked ways” shows the heart of the problem. They had lost biblical truth and accepted as normal all kinds of sins, practices and attitudes. We call this “cultural sin.” This ranges from accepting a loss of gladness and joy in doing God’s commandments to keeping unforgiveness to idolatry.

For now in Jesus, your generation only goes to one generation in God. When you get born again, your generational line goes to one, God, then you, and there are no curses in His bloodline. Thus it is technically impossible for anyone to have a generational curse with God, but it is perfectly valid that you do have generational blessings to the same level Jesus has them.

But that is at the spiritual level and not at the soul level. You can command demons to be quiet, be bound and even to go, but you cannot immediately change the programing in a person’s heart, their “wicked ways.”

It is this evil or twisted mental programing that is the primary problem. If the mind is not renewed, the person will go back and do the same things again and again. And thus release demon-assignement curses again and again.

Casting out the demon to get mental relief and/or physical healing does not remove the mental programing. For that we are commanded to renew our minds into truth.

So the cure is at least three-fold:

1. Break the power of the devil and command them to go in the name of Jesus.

2. Engage in aggressive mind renewing into truth by seeking the Lord continually in the Scriptures to address the cultural and behavioral mind programing that leads to more sins.

3. Repeat above until freedom.

A curse is not a document in heaven. God cannot send curses as He already placed all the curses due us on Jesus. Instead it is a demon-assignment from:

a) Your own sin(s)

b) Other’s sin(s) [For example: if the captain of the ship runs it aground in a storm, similar to what happened to Paul in Acts 27-28, you will experience the effect of what he/she did. Life will be hard for you and the cure is to walk in Psalms 23 and 91, and bless the captain and all others until the situation gets better.]

c) Placed by witchcraft (amateur or professional)

The one that probably challenges most modern people is to think that sin is only personal. Thus item b) above is very strange to you. But if you were raised in a terrible home environment, you know exactly what that life can be like, under the curse of bad set of parents who curse you with abuse and evil programming. You did not pick your family, but you have to deal properly with whatever life throws at you.

In this ungodly family life you may be pressured by lots of demonic influences and active curses, and the answer is to work in authority with God in the name of Jesus, to get the demons quiet and then out.

Breaking a demon-assignment curse is very simple, and there are a few direct ways.

1)      Break the curse in the name of Jesus as all sins and curses are remitted by the blood of Jesus and healed in the stripes of Jesus.

2)      Take communion and judge that curse on Jesus and now you and all your household are healed by the stripes of Jesus.

3)      Confess you are a new creature in Christ Jesus and all things are new and no spiritual curse has any authority over you, and then aiteo command the devil to go in the name of Jesus.

NOTE: As with all things in God, if you are renewed in your mind like the early disciples, this may take only once or a few times, otherwise repeat while ingesting New Testament truth until freedom comes.

Now when you see symptoms you attribute to family or generational curses, or any other kind of curse, apply one of the three steps above. Here our goal is to get you free and moving in authority over the devil in the name of Jesus, because if you have been trained for a long time in the typical generational curse teaching, you have a lot of mind renewing to get done.

In  an era where we accept no personal responsibility for our lives, our families, our town and our country, this message takes some time in reprogramming.

You do not need to spend a lot of time in soul-searching and family history to define what is sin and sinful in your life, instead start attacking the devil with aiteo commands and ingesting truth.

So when you are aware of any symptoms, add to the three actions above prayers like this (words are not as important as your intent and that you know you are speaking for God),

“Devil, I break your power over me and my household. All curses I break now in the name of Jesus and devil, you and all your works go now, in the name of Jesus. I am in a new generation and I belong to God. So my life and all aspects of it, get like God wants, now, in the name of Jesus.”

Then start thanking the Lord per Phil 4:6-7. Repeat as necessary.

In this way you can attack any symptom or fear you attribute to a curse of any kind, generational or anything else. What you must know is that first, the curse of the law is greater than any human curse, and no curse is greater than the redemption we have in Jesus from any curse of the law.

Gal 3:13“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

After you have done this enough to believe by breaking out into instant thanksgiving when the topic comes up, consider the curses of others are broken in your life and now you have to deal with other issues. So instead of looking at generational curses, look first to your own sins or the impact of the sin of others on your life.

If your family was involved in any form or witchcraft, including the masons, they do keep family records, so you need to deal with that. On our website, www.CovenantPeaceMinistries.com there is an article on breaking demonic curses. Take a look at that and get those mason’s set free. Remember every attack by anyone on any Christian is a request from God to get both the perpetrator and the victim set free.

The power of the Gospel is that we are required to:

Matt 5:44“But I say unto you, Agape/love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

So I want to know who is attempting to curse me for my job is now clear.

I have the blessing of Abraham, and that includes:

Gen 12:2“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

So, just like everything else in God, you have to apply His word in faith to your situation for His Word to have power for you. The blessing of Abraham is even greater, God says He will do this (i.e., they will reap evil from their sowing evil on one of His) without you doing anything. If you believe God you will be having mercy on those who are the sure recipients of their evil sowing until they confess their sins and get set free.

So it is more correct to say that the generational curses are sins that people accept and even call normal from generation to generation. So maybe it is better to call them “generational lies.,”  or cultural sins. Stop sinning and the bondage and death of the curse will go.

There is also a scripture that says the Lord will give you double for what Satan takes, (but I don’t seem to find it now). The life of Job is a great example of this. There is another scripture that says the devil must pay seven times what he steals.

Prov 6:30 “Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; 31 but if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.”

How do you know you are believing this? Simple, when you see these truths and you break out into thanksgiving, praise and joy, you know you got the message. If not, start training your soul how to react to the Word of God and start thanking, praising and rejoicing.

James 1:2 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations …”

Since obedience is better than sacrifice, start obeying and start rejoicing and the rest will come. And if it takes a while for the emotion of joy to come, know that you have been offended in your heart somewhere, so seek the Lord for who else to forgive, bless and help.

See OK, God, Now What? on a very effective way to do this in the “Ten Step Burn-It-Now Process.

Anybody know that scripture where God promises to bless double for any curse on you?

God Bless You and Yours, In the Name of Jesus!

Does God Make People Sick?

 

Baby with cancer.

Baby with cancer.

For the one who says, “God put this (sickness, disease, situation, etc) on me and is keeping it on me.”

God does not sit in heaven making arbitrary decisions on who to bless and who not to bless. He leaves that up to man.

On His side, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing it is possible to have for us to manifest with Him into the earth (Eph 1).

Eph 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”

We are told in James 1 to never accuse God as the source for our problems of any kind.

James 1:13 “Let no man [or woman] say when he [or she] is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.”

But as Paul is the example, while God has given us every spiritual blessing in heavenly places, someone needs to believe God to bring them to earth. Therefore in that same letter to the Ephesians, Paul prays two powerful prayers specifically aimed at bringing those spiritual blessings to earth.

And Jesus included the same thing in the “Our Father,” when He told us to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matt 6:8-15)

So how could Jesus heal all those people in the Bible where He spent so much time healing them by bringing heaven to earth for them if God put sickness on them? Jesus is the exact representation of God so we could get and keep a right picture of the love of God.

God is never the problem. God has left the manifestation of Himself into the earth in the hands of man. Jesus came to show us what it looks like when it is done right.

Luke 18 tells us to keep in prayer night and day until we get the answer. Jesus even wondered if when He returns will He find people still praying for God’s will to be done on the earth like He said in the Our Father. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

No persistent, reverent and effective prayer means God’s will is not done, even though God wants it done.

I recognize your disappointment and frustration in delayed answer. We are destroyed, and your (problems or sickness) remain, by a lack of knowledge of God’s ways properly applied, not by a lack of the will of God. (Hosea 4:6)

I may want to build a jet airplane, but if I do not organize the creation of God properly, then whatever I do will not fly. Prayer battles are the same. It is not just passion but passion in truth and grace that makes the difference. Sincerity without truth does not produce anything of God on the earth.

“Anything between you and a promise of God is a devil either resisting you, or in lies of the devil we believe.” The only hindrance on the part of God is people believing God is hindering anything of His will. Our battle is not against people or God, but the devil and his lies.

Overcome the resisting devil with aiteo commands, lies with God’s Word of Truth, imputed Righteousness and Grace, and stay in thanksgiving, praise and joy until you know you have the answer (Phil 4:4-9).

God’s bold declaration on healing of any kind is in Isaiah 53 and the resurrection of Jesus unto His glorification of being seated at the right hand of the Father.

In Isaiah 53 we are told Jesus became our sin, sickness, defeat, pains, sorrows and failure, bore them fully, and satisfied and paid to completion the price for them, and was fully healed of them to the level of God. Jesus got that job done. When Jesus went to hell, He took us with Him. He did not need to go for Himself; He did it for us, to the level of the satisfaction of Father God.

When God raised Jesus from the dead that could only happen as Jesus was healed of every sin and the curse of the sin, which includes everything and anything that is not like heaven on earth, including your (problems or sickness) (Rom 4:25).

When God raised Jesus from the dead, every sin and curse of sin for all mankind – past, present and future – was healed by those stripes at the whipping post for the physical aspects, and in that resurrection for the soul and spiritual aspects.

God tells us in Rom 4:25 that Jesus could not have been raised from the dead until both He and you and all mankind were justified by God in Jesus. If that job had not been done, Jesus could not have been raised as He became all that sinful man was and is, and thus would have to still be in Hell if Father God had not seen that Jesus made the full, total and complete payment for all mankind.

Jesus got His job done and that included your and my healing of everything that is not just like Jesus forever. Thus there is no legal ground since that day 2000 years ago for the devil to inflict the law of sin and death on anyone ever.

The devil enforcing the law of sin and death does not make it legal.

Our job is to destroy the works of the devil, including your (problems or sickness). We do not deny that problem exists; we deny its right to remain in the name of Jesus. We are destroyed by a lack of how to properly apply this knowledge, not by the will of God in delay.

Peter explained this when he and John healed a man crippled from birth at the Gate Beautiful.

Acts 3:11 “And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. 12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? 13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 5 and killed the Prince of zoe/life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16 And his name (Jesus’) through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”

Notice in verse 12 Peter says is was not by his own power or holiness that the man was healed. And in verse 16 Peter states that it was the name of Jesus and faith in that name that did the miracle. This has never changed.

So how do you build this kind of effective faith in yourself or others right now?

Now you know why we wrote the Power Trilogy, so we could be more effectively about our Father’s business as Jesus was and still is.

I know a woman who had the top half of her body burned in fire. Even her fingernails melted. All of her skin, including her face and hair, was horribly disfigured. It took a while and she never stopped doing those faith actions of Phil 4:4-9. Then one day the dead skin fell off and now she looks as young as her daughters. Often her husband is asked which daughter is that when they see her. Through the pain and suffering, and torment she held onto the truth that by Jesus’ stripes she was healed.

Faint not. And do not join the devil by agreeing this is God holding the blessing back.

Jesus showed what a right thinking human could do concerning healing and blessing of God. If you are not seeing the results Jesus got, then work to think more like Jesus. The answer is in knowing Jesus to effective renewing of the mind, and not in finding fault with God.

There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are now making, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you.

It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.

Battle Prayer for Divine Healing-Field Manual 2

On Delayed or No Results When I Pray

Go back to the beginning and study like chopping wood.

Go back to the beginning and study like chopping wood with focused effort to “attend” unto the Word and God in the Word.

On delayed answer to deliverance or healing.

My first suggestion is to get my book, “Battle Prayer for Divine Healing- Field Manual 2″ We all love the short battle, but reality is that until we get more like Jesus, we have to go from where we are. And this book is designed for success in longer term prayer battles when you must win and the short prayers do not seem to be working.

In deliverance, I do not let the demons manifest very much or hurt others. John Lake sometimes fought for 3-5 days straight before he saw victory. Other days it was instant. On others it took months. If the demon moves, you see signs of relief; you are in the right direction. Then keep at it with continued aiteo commands to get more freedom.

If there is long delay and the results slow in coming, the usual answer is to take a break and the ministers fill themselves with scripture, thanksgiving, praise, rejoicing and praying in tongues for a couple of hours and go again. The Bible calls this encouraging yourself in the Lord or girding your mind.

The anointing is on the Word of God. If you want more anointing, go to the Scriptures. The Word of God is zoe life and builds faith. For more power and internal strength, pray in tongues loud, hard and fast. Duration may range from 5 minutes to 3 days. If you do not pray in tongues, seek the Lord for it, in the meantime give exuberant thanks and praise for equivalent times.

The various ways are described in the book. FM2 is available at Amazon (if you are in not in the US) or see my website for more details. The key is the state of the minister. The problem is never God. It is failure to build a path God can use and that is our job.

As Jesus demonstrated that may take several days of all day preaching and all night Bible prayer (quoting Scripture and aiteo God to fulfill them). You can check out the other resources at my website. www.CovenantPeaceMinistries.com

There is no hindrance on the side of God; the issues are in resistance of the devil or lies we believe. It is glad truth that sets us free, and all the anointing is in the Word of God. God has already spoken in, not only the life of Jesus, but in Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and glorification to the right hand of the Father.

Here is a 5 step process:

  1. Word – get back into the relevant Scriptures with intensity.
  2. God in the Word – reflect on how those Scriptures describe God as seen in Jesus.
  3. God – spend time in thanksgiving, praise and joy until you are thankful, praiseful and joyful by seeing God directly in your heart. You want to get to the place where you are worshiping Him in spirit and in truth – John 4:24; 14:17; 15:26; 16:13 and 1 Pe 1:22. Do not be surprised if this does takes some time – more than 4 hours or even 4 days. Start with the praises of Jesus in Colossians as well as the Psalms in general.
  4. Do love – pray for others who are sick so you sow healing to reap healing and do something kind for at least one other person (if nothing else pray intensely for them) to get your mind thinking like God thinks. Pray for all those praying for you or who are in a healing ministry.
  5. Aiteo for the problem to go, talk to that mountain and tell it to leave and then “receive” the answer by giving glory to God in advance.

This is a shortened version of the “Ten Step Burn-It-Now Process” described in all the Power Trilogy books. In general, since this is a vital need and time is short, each step will require hours for the best results.

God has already spoken His will for healing, deliverance and prosperity by the stripes of Jesus. Father God paid the awesome price, so healing can be ours. There is no hindrance on God’s side. And His help is in the Scriptures by Holy Spirit. To understand better, pray in tongues as you read Scripture.

Believing is not what we ascribe as true (that is mental assent) but what sets us to thanksgiving, praise and joy in the face of conflicting facts. If troubles or delay do not set your feet to dancing, then go obey James 1 and Phil 4:4-9 until you do.

Faith is the absolute assurance of the joyful expectation of coming good. Joy is exuberant thanksgiving, praise and glory with loud shouts, clapping, dancing, jumping, prancing, arm waving, running, yelling. The only difference among Bible thanksgiving, praise and joy is that in joy the words are not understandable, as joy is full of yells and screams, and in thanksgiving and praise the words are understandable, but the body actions are the same as joy.

Ps 47:1 “O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.”

How to make that a regular part of life is the subject of “OK, GOD, Now What?For the short-term you can cram on truth. Just like in college that is many continuous hours, 1-3 days, of immersion. For that consider the FM2 or “Discovering Our Redemption.” This is why I wrote these books. They work for those who work them.

There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are now making, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you.

It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.

A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.
