Minister Annette

The Word of the Lord

January 26, 2013 (Saturday Intercessory Prayer)
Hear my voice all you people!

For I am still here, it’s in all my control even though it may look otherwise.  Have I not said, do not look through your natural eyes but through the Spirit for He will show you the truth of the matter.  It’s all in my control.

The enemy has pulled out his heavy artillery; it’s time for us to pull out ours –Prayer.  Stay constant; stay steady in your prayer life.  Come boldly before me and make your request known unto me.

Remember my hand is stayed until you speak, speak, bombard heaven with your prayers.  Continue to shout, a shout of praise, a shout of victory.  You have won!  Don’t ever let that slip your memory.  Victory is ours no matter what it looks like.  I am open to your prayers, your praise, your worship!

Remember I inhabit your praises.  I wrap myself in your prayers and your praise.  Continue, continue to intercede, knowing that your prayers have been heard and I have taken care of them all.

Rest and rejoice in the victory.

Continue, continue, continue the love for one another for your love breaks down the walls of hate; the motivator of your enemy.

Continue in unity, caring for one another, for the world has lost heart. It’s all in your hands.  Yes!  It’s your hands that set the captives free; through your prayers.

Speak a work of comfort to those who are hurting, to those who are lost, to those who are seeking, yet not finding…  They need to fulfill their lives, but know not where to turn.  Show them the way to me.  For with loving kindness I will draw them.    I will heal their broken hearts, heal their hurt, their pain, and remove the hate.  I will replace all those things that hold them in bondage with my love.

Yes, you are my ambassadors, petition me, make your requests known unto me and they shall come to past and there will be great joy in the land.

Prophetic Word | Foundation: Hebrews 13:15
My child hear my voice and listen to my words.  I am in love with you.  I created you for fellowship.  Spend more time with me.  I want to be with you and talk with you just as I did my son Adam.  I long for relationship.  Nothing can separate us, I am always here waiting to spend time with you.  Just to hear your voice and tell you that I am right here with you.

I said you’re never alone for if you ascend to the highest mountain I am there, the lowest valley I am there.  Turn and look at me, embrace me for I have much to say.  I will reveal great things to you if you’ll just take the time to listen.

There are important thing that are yet to come, things I need to tell you.  Come close, draw near so that I may whisper them in your ear.

Trials, tribulations and tests will overtake the world, but not you for you are mine forever.  Victorious are you in me as you continue to walk in faith trusting me all the way.

The battle has already been won, victory is already achieved now walk like it’s so. Shout the victory chant every day of your life:  We win! We win! We have won the battle!  Let that be your victory cry.

Oh how I long for more intimacy with you to be able to manifest Myself through you.  I have given you gifts, operate in them; if it be teaching – teach, if it be prophecy – prophesy, if it be gifts of healings – walk in that. If it be word of wisdom – speak.  Operate fervently.

Do not let my gifts lie dormant; the Spirit will do my good pleasure through you.  I am here! I am here! Let the world know I am here!
To Pastor Breedlove
To the Shepherd of this house:

I have placed a teaching anointing on you, but prepare yourself for a greater anointing.  I will manifest myself in such a greater way that men will be amazed.  Greater manifestations will take place.  Men will see the very presence of God on your life.  The very fragrance of God is upon your life.  Be ye also ready.  I will demonstrate my love through you!

360 Degree Turn Returning Back to God

Scripture References:
Genesis 2: 1-23, Genesis 3, Romans 5:12, 2 Cor. 5:20, I Cor. 15:45-47, II Cor. 5:18, II Cor. 11: 2-3, James 4:1-3

Introduction – First let me say, everything I am about to tell you today has probably already been said, however my objective today is to show you some things that will is stir you up, get you up, get you moving, to show you greater revelation of God’s Word.  I pray that what I am about to say again to you today will cause you to have a new attitude toward the work that Jesus accomplished on the cross.

We talk much about the finished work of Christ and we can get excited about that, but are we really walking in all that He accomplished for us?

Today’s message is a call to action.  Like some of the older people used to say “Calling all, but waiting for none.”  I’m here to stir you up in such a way that you will want run out here, stop at every stop light shouting the Good News.

Isn’t it time we heard some Good News?

Yes Adam disobeyed God and hurled all of humanity into sin, but before the foundation of the world, God already had a plan.  Jesus, the spotless lamb, was slain before the foundation of the world to save us from sin.  One thing I want us all to understand this it was not back-up plan to Adam’s mess.  It was God’s Plan from the very beginning.

I. The World Before Sin
A. God’s Plan:  Genesis 2:1-3, 7, 15-16, 18 (NKJV)
1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
God rested because His plan was complete and everything was GOOD!
The life of Man – full of the life of God!
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Man created full of the life of God!
Life in God’s Garden – Painting a picture of Tranquility
8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
18 And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
23 And Adam said:
“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”

Summarize God’s Original Plan:
A.  God wanted A Family –  Gen 3:26, 28
Gen 3:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;

28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;

B. Light – because He hated darkness – Genesis 1:3

3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness
C. Commune with Man | D. Peace | E. Love | F. Life
F. Fellowship (Praise)
31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.
Everything God made was Good!

II. The World After Sin – Satan’s Plan Genesis 3:1- 6

Through Adam, sin entered the world:

Romans 5:12
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Genesis 3:1-6
1NOW THE serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?(A)
2And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden,
3Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,(B)
5For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.
7Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

2 Corinthians 4:18
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

11And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?
12And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me–she gave me [fruit] from the tree, and I ate. [Blame Game]
13And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled (cheated, outwitted, and deceived) me, and I ate. [Blame Game – excuses]
14And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [all is cursed] [domestic] animals and above every [wild] living thing of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust [and what it contains] all the days of your life.
15And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her [a]Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.(C)

Here is what God revealed — when sin entered it was like an Explosion. 

  • Explosion – a large-scale, rapid, or spectacular expansion or bursting out or forth, burst outward, usually with noise, a sudden, often vehement outburst
  •  Explosion mess goes everywhere over everything!

Sin made an intrusive, abrupt entrance into the world!

A. Sin brought:
 Darkness and destruction —  John 11:10
But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

 Pain  —  Genesis 3: 16  To the woman He said:
“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;  In pain you shall bring forth children;

 Fear
Genesis 3:9 -9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

 Love dissipated – Love left (Cain killing Abel)
 Evil
 Shame & Blame

III. The World After Jesus’ Death

Through Jesus, sin was dismantled.
2 Corinthians 5:20-21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

I said earlier that sin made an abrupt entrance into the world like an explosion! Right?  Here’s how God revealed Jesus’ death to me – as an Implosion! 
I don’t know how many demolition experts we have out there, but if you know anything about it, you know there is a vast difference between the two: explosion and implosion.
Implosion – the act or action of bringing to or as if to a center; to burst inward;
a controlled demolition during which the entire building imploded in a matter of seconds; place your dynamite strategically to create a clean crumble; the strategic placing of explosive material and timing of its detonation so that a structure collapses on itself in a matter of seconds, minimizing the physical damage to its immediate surroundings.

God already had a Strategic Plan in place!! This was not an after-thought, this was not a back-up plan, this was not Plan B. This was the original plan at the foundation of the earth.

Revelation 13:8 (King James Version)
8And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

 Light Restored — John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

 Life Restored.  — John 3:15 – That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
1 Corinthians 15:45-47 (New International Version)
45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[a]; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.

 Love Restored God changed our perception of love
John 3:16
I John 4:7  7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.  9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.  10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

 Fellowship Restored – Reconciled To God

2 Corinthians 5:18 (King James Version)
18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
Romans 5:10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
Reconciliation: To change from enmity to friendship, is what God accomplished, exercising His grace towards sinful man on the ground of the death of Christ, “that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself.” And now God has given us the ministry of reconciliation!

IV. A Call to Action

A. Contend Earnestly For the Faith — Fight the Good Fight of Faith

When the truth of God is attacked, it is time to fight for the faith. Only believers who are spiritually fit can answer this summons.

Jude 1:3b …and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Some us are offended, some us are walking to the shores of Love (that when you are just sticking your toes in to test the waters…)

After each statement I want you to say “It was Nailed to the cross”

Angry because the person spoke to someone else and overlooked me,
It was Nailed to the cross
Someone was appointed a position and that really should have been me,
It was Nailed to the cross
Why am I not in charge of that, you know I could do a much better job,
It was Nailed to the cross
Work with them, I don’t think so…
It was Nailed to the cross
I know I have to love her but I really don’t like her
It was Nailed to the cross
They need to do this my way
It was Nailed to the cross
Unforgiveness
It was Nailed to the cross
Hatred
It was Nailed to the cross
Confusion
It was Nailed to the cross
Dissention
It was Nailed to the cross
Arguing
It was Nailed to the cross

All these things have been nailed to the cross…
John 16:1- These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

God wants to reveal so many things to us, but He can’t if we allow these small things to come between us and God.  We have to release those things to God.  We need to fix the horizontal before we try to work on the vertical.

Allow God to do the covering just like He did way back in the Garden of Eden.  He continues to cover us today.  He’s go our backs.

B. God Himself is earnestly fighting for us by His Spirit

God loves us so much that He fights for us when sometime we give up and won’t fight for ourselves.

We have been espoused to one husband – Jesus…

2 Corinthians 11:1-3
1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.  2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

2 Corinthians 11:1-3  (Message)
Will you put up with a little foolish aside from me? Please, just for a moment. The thing that has me so upset is that I care about you so much—this is the passion of God burning inside me! I promised your hand in marriage to Christ, presented you as a pure virgin to her husband. And now I’m afraid that exactly as the Snake seduced Eve with his smooth patter, you are being lured away from the simple purity of your love for Christ.

God is Jealous and is yearning for our spirits
James 4:4-6
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?  6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.  7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:4-10 (The Message)
4-6 You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.”
7-10 So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

C. Walk in the Light — Fellowship with God and One another

1 John 1:5-7 (Message)
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

D. Walk In Love

I John 4:12-16
12 …If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

E. We Triumph In Christ –  Share the Good News

2 Corinthians 2:14-17
14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, as so many,[b] peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.

2 Cor 2:14-17 (The Message)
14 But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. 15 Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing. 16 To those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this? 17 You see, we are not like the many hucksters[a] who preach for personal profit. We preach the word of God with sincerity and with Christ’s authority, knowing that God is watching us.

In summary:
Sin entered the world abruptly like an explosion, however Jesus destroy the sin through a well thought out plan.

This is the key of this whole matter: God wants to restore us to the Garden where He dwells, a place of love, a place of light, a place of life and to get there, He has promised our hand to one husband and that is Jesus Christ.

It was a magnificent plan from the beginning and it still is – we have to stop flirting with the world, committing adultery, which makes us enemies of God.  God has called us friends. He has made us children of God and children of light, so let us walk in the light of Jesus’ finished work.

Let us realize that we are all a part of a strategic plan and that plan is a good plan, a plan to bring us to a good end.  We have to right what is wrong in our lives, and turn toward the light of the glorious Gospel.

When Jesus hung on the cross, He disintegrated sin. He destroyed and removed it as abruptly as it has entered. It was clean crumble.  He took on all that sin had brought and, in one fell swoop, He imploded it within Himself. We have been set free, so let us walk in the freedom that Christ has rendered for us.

Call to Action

Father, I know the plan You have for me, a plan of good and not evil.  The plan that You set in place before the foundation of the world.  Thank You for your love, your Son Jesus, who gave his very life for me.  I know that You always cause me to triumph as long as I keep my eyes on Jesus and continue to obey your word.  Father I move forward in You walking in the light as You are in the Light.
