ANS ONLINE: CELEBRATION SUNDAY MESSAGE
9 AUGUST 2020
by Dr. Jonathan David
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
The time has come so that the Spirit of God can bring us to our inheritance. God is making the way and making the path clear so that we do not miss the birthright.
- We must determine to eat from the Tree of Life.
Pray that God will give us the power to stay strong so that we can eat from the Tree of Life.
- We have access to the revelation knowledge of God so that we can pray that the eyes of our heart be enlightened so that we can receive a clear understanding and insight into all that God has done.
We must have access to revelation flow and ask God to speak to us. If He gives us the word, the word will sustain us. God wants us to eat the manna that is hidden in the Holy of holies.
Rev 22: 6
6 And he said to me, “These words are faithful and true”; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His bond-servants the things which must soon take place.
God is not mysterious but will solve every mystery for us. The spirit of the prophet must flow into the church so that we can hear what God is saying. We have the right to choose holy living.
11 Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
This is the beginning of the Age of Righteous. We are coming to the end of sin age. The power of sin is broken. More and more people are going to be saved. Thousands are coming to the days of revival. All these things will happen and we have the right to choose life or death. When we are under authority, we can function in authority. Determine to eat from the Tree of Life. Have access to revelation flow. Hear and prepare ourselves for war. Every war is winnable when we follow the Captain of the Lord of Host.
- Choose to live righteously and we will live righteously.
If we don’t make any decision, we will continue the same way we are. We must make decision by the spirit so that we will always be on line with God.
- Expect full harvest and inheritance
Nobody can take it away. It is pay day and it is time for us to take our reward. Everything that has been done or prayed for, prophesied, all these will come to pass because God has given us the Holy Spirit, the Master Key; the fulfillment to all prophesies. God wants us to rise and go straight into the Tree of Life. Expect a full harvest.
12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done
- Take the opportunity to enter the City of God
The church Unusual and Zion will merge. When they merge, the supernatural on the natural and the Kingdom will be demonstrated. We are building church, birthing Zion and ultimately build the Kingdom. Enter the City of God and meet the Builder. Jesus is building the church and the gates of hell will come and we will not be overpowered. If God is on our side, no one can stop us from entering the city.
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
Every opportunity to be in the spirit, worship God in spirit and in truth, feel buoyancy in the spirit, we are walking in our birthright. The door will be opened freely for us to enter. Meet the Builder. He has the pattern and the provision for progress.
- It is our birthright to drink from the River of Life
The rivers of Babylon are polluted created more illness and sickness. God has given us the freedom to drink from the River of Life.
Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, 2 in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
- We will be crowned with life and we will be more connected to the Holy Spirit.
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.
The price has been paid by the Lord Jesus Christ. He continuously made provisions for us even when we don’t know our future needs. God provided 5 stones to David but David only used 1. There are 4 other giants in the land. If they come out, David has the balance 4 to use. So don’t be afraid of lack.
We must have integrity in our heart. That’s why God wants us to partake the Tree of Life and choose holy living. We cannot go further than the decisions we have made. Take every opportunity to drink freely from the River of Life so that there is health and healing in the nation.
PATHWAYS OF THE SPIRIT
Prayer invades the impossible, making possible the impossible. There are many patterns when it comes to prayer. There are many opinions. Prayer is the greatest force that will be restored back in our lives. The natural will become the supernatural.
9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]
Pray in such a way that we touch the heart of God, by connecting accurately, according to the pattern. He is our Father and knows our needs even before we ask Him.
32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things
The Father is showing the secret of how all these things can be ours. He knows we need all these also. As we pray, don’t doubt in our mind.
21 Being reminded, Peter *said to Him, “Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered.” 22 And Jesus *answered saying to them, “Have faith in God.
God is giving it to us and our job is to receive faith. When we pray we see things open up in the Spirit world. Some people don’t believe in prayer because it takes too long to see fulfilment. Have the God kind of faith.
23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.
Every promise that God gives to us can become a reality if we know how to hold it in prayer. Keep faith burning in our heart. Prayer will open up the corridors of heaven. Prayer is amazing because it pulls all the resources together. We cannot cash in or anything except through faith.
Prayer is speaking, demanding and proclaiming the will of God until it becomes a reality. We must know that He wants, what He wants and what He has spoken will come to pass because His words will not go back to Him empty.
When we pray, be expectant. When God put faith in our heart, He gives us the word and when we believe it, faith will manifest. Don’t doubt or we will short circuit the flow. We must believe what He says will happen. Expectation must be high. The greater the miracle, the greater the faith. The greater the faith, the supernatural will break out. Our mind and our spirit must be joined together.
Do we believe what we are going to say will happen? Then faith is there if we are sure it will happen.
24 Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
Believe what we say will come to past. Believe that we have received them in our spirit and it will happen in the flesh. Prayer is the force from heaven. The dimension of the Holy Spirit can expand prayer to the next level.
- Worship around the Throne
Worship exalts the sovereign God. Worship means worthy. Who is He to us? What is our revelation of Him? Is he our Father? Fix our eyes on the greatness of God, not the bigness of our problems. When worship is around, it has the power to carry us beyond the veil. Worship will be a powerful force in our lives. Worship brings us closer to the Throne of God.
- Praying in tongues until the inner man rises up with stature
Take back our birthright. We cannot win back the nation if we do not take back our birthright.
16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
God gave the 5 fold so that the church can go up to the next level. If we rise up and become strong in our inner man, the Holy Spirit can dwell within our spirit. Christ will be made manifest. Praying in tongues is very essential and it is also a safety for us.
When our spirit is strong and we can arrest all the prevailing spirit in the neighbourhood, we can rise up stronger.
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
We must be strong so that we can stand firm against the schemes of the devil. Whatever the devil does, he will lose. He is a loser since the beginning of time. He is a liar and a murderer.
We are not to struggle in flesh and blood. We are to be in the spirit. God made us strong enough to fight spiritual dimensions. That’s why the battle is winnable and we can win completely. Be strong in our spirit so that we can escape the schemes of the devil.
God wants us not to just become children but grow become mature sons of the Living God. Pray in tongues on a consistent basis.
- Explicit obedience releases the prevailing power to the next generation
This is our birthright not to lose our children. It is also their birthright to stay with the fathers. Explicit obedience will open up the pathway of the Spirit immediately. God’s provision is equaled to our obedience. God wants us to know if we heed and obey the power to change the next generation is there. Put obedience as our main goal in life.
Jesus came and set the power equation right. Before Jesus died on the cross, the devil is the oppressor and we are oppressed. After Jesus came, we become the people of power and the devil is defeated. God wants us to rise up as a conqueror.
- We must go back to the initial word God spoke to us and re-dig the wells
This is our birthright. God has raised up many men and women for the past 6000 years. They fought the battles of life and they overcame. Go back to the word that God initially spoke to us. This is our starting point. Prophetic words unlock the future. When we hear God’s words or prophecy, the sooner we start, the better it is. We will have a head start and the enemy cannot hold us down.
Get ready soon because the Holy Spirit will descend. Souls will come in, people will be healed, demons cast out, and demonic spirits are chased away from our lives.
A new era has come for us to become warriors.
Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman keeps awake in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of painful labors;
For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.
As children grow, the father also has to grow like a warrior. The children are a push so that the generations above will live righteously.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.
The people we raise will be the hope of the future. God has given us that victory so that we can follow Him. He builds the house, watches over the city and family. That’s why God must speak to us continuously.
