Luke 3:4, “As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” 

This morning as I awakened, the Holy Spirit led me before even showering and preparing myself for the day, to go into my time of intercession first.  As I was praying in tongues, I heard the Spirit say, “Prepare for one hundred days from now.”  I waited and asked the Lord for more definition and the only thing that I heard was one hundred days of preparation.  

Back in the month of December as I was seeking God for 2011, the Lord spoke and said, “Now is the time!”  My question was, “Time for what Lord?”  He replied, “First, things must come into alignment.”  The reason there is so much shaking going on in our nation and families and even churches is because things have been out of proper alignment.  

Here at the Lighthouse, we are in transition for apostolic alignment starting with our personal lives.   

As I waited upon the Lord, the only scripture that came to mind was that of John the Baptist, when he says “Prepare the way of the Lord.”   Preparation had to be made because the greatest transition was about to take place.  We are getting in alignment because of what is about to take place as we transition in the last hours of time, as the church of Jesus Christ as we know it.  

Later on this morning, I turned on the television and the statement I heard was “One hundred days until the royal wedding!”  Immediately, I began to calculate one hundred days from now. That date is April 29, which is the Friday of Women of Valor.  With this Word came responsibility.  God is saying that not one day can be wasted.  We only have this kairos moment.  This is a moment marked in time and every day has to count.  

Don’t be distracted by the clutter, cares and concerns of this world.  Let us stay focused and be led by Holy Spirit so that we don’t miss this moment in time.

Every day prayer requests pour in to us concerning losses.  Whether it’s employment, health, marriage, or financial, loss happens to us all.  Without God our only hope is to medicate, cope and go on.  However, as believers, we can do more than just take a defensive posture in life!  God’s Word is filled with examples of restoration and tools that we can apply to our own personal situation.

I have just released a 59-page mini-book entitled, Restoration God’s Way that I want to make available to all Covenant Partners who give in this month of August.  You will be empowered to not only take back what has been stolen from your life, but tap into God’s abundant reward for those who have endured great trials.

In this book you’ll find answers to these questions, and more:

  1. How can I find restoration in the case of the death of a loved one, loss of innocence, irreconcilable relationship, etc.?
  2. How can you gain a hundred-fold return after losing everything?
  3. How can I receive restoration when I am to blame for the loss?
  4. Is it presumptuous to expect that God wants to restore and bless me this side of Heaven?
  5. How do I effectively appeal to the justice of God, the Just Judge?

I wrote this book with you in mind. He’s Alive was able to publish it at such an affordable price, that we can bless you with it this month.  Because I am so passionate about restoration, I will be signing every copy personally, and praying over each one – believing for full restoration in your life.  To obtain a copy, simply send the best love offering you can to He’s Alive Radio.  The minimum suggested donation is $10 to cover the cost of printing/shipping.  Every penny goes right back into keeping He’s Alive Radio broadcasting in the summer months.

Restoration is Yours!

 

As you experience this journey we call life, you soon discover that things are not always fair.  

Ecclesiastes 3 speaks about the cycle of life.  Loss is something we all incur.  Sometimes it comes through death.  There are loss opportunities, the death of dreams and hopes and even relationships that we thought would always be solid.  Statistics show that two out of every three marriages end in divorce leaving injustices especially to the children. 

 There are things that happen that we have no control over and sometimes people make choices that affect us.  Worse than that are the wrong choices we make either out of ignorance or rebellion against God.  Regret sets in as we pay severely for those wrong choices.  

 At times we have the combination of the two.  Their choice and our choice and we are left to deal with the results.  Most of us simply just deal and realize that life goes on. 

The Lord spoke to me and said, “There is a higher level of thinking.”

 This Sunday at the World Lighthouse Worship Center I will be preaching Part 3 of God Will Restore! In this message, you will learn how God will restore the losses back to you.  The Lord wants you today to know that He will restore the years and the fruit that was eaten. If you believe Him and confess His word, He will restore and fill you with satisfaction.  You will live a life without regret. 

 You don’t have to accept the loss. 

Lovingly,                                                                                                                                              Pastor Sharon

At the World Lighthouse Worship center we have been in the study of Yahweh, which is God revealing Himself, deliverer, redeemer and savior. This is the name that God revealed to Moses at the burning bush.  He was saying I have always been the one and I will always be and there is no other. 

In John 8, Jesus reveals himself as I AM, “Yahweh”.  Jesus said unto them in verse 58, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.  The name of Jesus is our authority.  When we call upon it we have deliverance, redemption and salvation. 

John 14:12-14 says,  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 

In this passage, that word ask means require.  When you require something, you are putting a demand on it. This is talking about more than prayer. It is referring to putting a demand on the greater works by the authority of the name of Jesus.  Peter and John at the gate beautiful spoke to the lame man and put a requirement on the name of Jesus and the greater works were done.  (Acts 3)

Note that you are not demanding God. You are demanding Satan!  When we use the name of Jesus as power of attorney of His name, we are invoking all the authority invested in Jesus who is Yahweh.  Whatever you are facing otday  speak to it! Command that mountain to get out of your way in the name of Jesus.  

Confession:                                                                                                                                            As a believer, the name of Jesus belongs to me. When he gave me his name, he gave me his authority.  When his spirit filled me, he gave me his power.  So by the power invested in me, in the name of Jesus, I command lack to leave, sickness to go and all evil to leave my presence in Jesus name!

Proverbs 16:21-24
(New International Version)

 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,
and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD .

The wise in heart are called discerning,
and pleasant words promote instruction. 

Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it,
but folly brings punishment to fools.

A wise man’s heart guides his mouth,
and his lips promote instruction. 

Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

*The New Century Version states that pleasant words are like a       
honeycomb, making people happy and healthy. 

This morning as I was meditating in Proverbs 16, the Lord reminded me of the power of life and death in our words.  God’s word is pleasant.  God’s word has instruction.  God’s word is a fountain of life.  Taste and see how wonderful He is as you declare pleasant words.  It will bring you into His rest emotionally and healing physically.  

Just a reminder that you hold power in your mouth. Release your faith to declare His word today

Joshua 1:3-9

“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

It is time to go into the promised land. As you have heard me teach before, the land of milk and honey is the land that promotes health and prosperity.  It is called the promised land because it is the place where the promises of God are fulfilled in our lives.  The other day, I shared with you from Hosea 6:1-3 concerning the place where we are now and where we are going.  The outpouring of His presence has been Father’s love reviving us.  Revival and restoration are for the great outpouring.  We will be used by Him as instruments of the new flow.

As in Joshua chapter 1, it’s a new generation, a new time, but it’s past time.  God is saying that we are to strengthen ourselves in the word and we must keep our confession of faith when tempted to complain about the giants in the land.  We must remember that they are sign posts that we are entering our place of promise.  We are embarking on a time that’s been appointed by heaven to take the land.

Soon we are going to witness changes in our lives, in our families and church that I believe will effect this region and the world.  Keep your focus.  Keep your confession on the Word.
