To all the precious people of Heritage of Faith,
The focus of this fast is to prepare our hearts for brother Jerry’s coming.
Ps John said recently that all of the honor and glory for what is going to happen when brother
Jerry comes goes to Jesus, but it is Jesus that is sending brother Jerry to us! Brother Jerry is
the messenger of Jesus and he is coming with a message from Jesus for us.
This event is worthy of preparation!
Just as the Shunammite woman prepared a chamber for the man of God – just as we have
prepared a spiritual chamber for brother Jerry with our honor seed.
So we now prepare the chambers of our hearts that our hearts may receive everything that the
Lord has prepared for us!
The Lord has encouraged us to come to these meetings in childlike anticipation.
He has asked us to come with humility, trusting Him completely in what He is going to say and
do.
Matthew 18:3-4 Amplified Bible
3 And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little
children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all].
4 Whoever will humble himself therefore and become like this little child [trusting, lowly,
loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Pray: “Father I ask you to restore to me this childlikeness!
I change today and I become like a little child – trusting, lowly, loving and forgiving!
I enter fully into all that You have prepared for me.”
One way to humble ourselves is through fasting and praying.
Psalm 35:13
I humbled my soul with fasting and my prayer.
Choosing humility causes God to lift you up!
1 Peter 5:5 Living Bible
And all of you serve each other with humble spirits, for God gives special blessings to those
who are humble, but sets himself against those who are proud. 6 If you will humble yourselves
under the mighty hand of God, in his good time he will lift you up.
Humility is a fruit – a product of your recreated spirit!
Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Meekness is interchangeable with humility. Some translations say “humility.”
That means you can be humble!
Humility includes walking in constant forgiveness toward everyone.
Humility includes being free from bitterness, anger, animosity, ill feeling, spite, vengeance,
jealousy, envy toward anyone.
It includes not comparing yourself with other people.
It includes thinking more highly of others than you do of yourself.
It is not self-seeking.
Humility is NOT beating yourself up over your sin and weakness and failures!
It is confidently and instantly receiving forgiveness and experiencing cleansing from all sin!
1 Corinthians 13 is a beautiful picture of the meekness of Jesus
Read this chapter aloud during your fast and let the words sink deep into your heart!
During this fast you can pray the following prayer every day:
“Heavenly Father, may Your great goodness be known to me.
Take from my heart, every kind and form and degree of pride.
Awaken in me the deepest depth and truth of humility!
I trust the power of Your Holy Spirit’s work in me to show me and help me to be free from
every pride!”
Pray this from the bottom of your heart.
Break bread and partake of the body and the Blood of Jesus as you prepare your hearts in
sincerity with the Lord!
We encourage you to do this fast as an entire family.
Decide what you are going to fast.
For example:
Turn the television off during these 5 days.
Eat only grains and pulses and vegetables.
Go off sugar completely.
Quit coffee.
Fasting is only effective with prayer.
Speak the word for this year – speak to the Lord.
Pray in your heavenly language.
Do these things every day.
Set aside special times.
If you are single then be in contact with the people in your prayer connect group.
Families’, reach out to the people that you know are alone, to encourage them and include
them!
Let us do this fast mindful of one another!
Examples in Scripture of people who prepared their hearts before the Lord, for special
occasions:

Joshua 1:10-11
Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
Pass through the camp and command the people, prepare your provisions, for within three
days you shall pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land which the Lord
your God is giving you to possess.
Joshua 3:5
And Joshua said to the people, sanctify yourselves [that is, separate yourselves for a
special holy purpose], for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.
Here were God’s people who recognized the time of God for them.
They received instructions and got ready for this great event!
The Amplified Bible says they prepared themselves for a special and a holy purpose!
We are preparing our hearts, because in just a few short weeks brother Jerry is coming to the
spiritual chamber, which we prepared for him, with our honor seed!
The Word of the Lord comes through brother Jerry
“Let me tell you something that the Lord said to me when Joe told me what you and Sharon
wanted to do and you can take this back to the people:
Remember in the Old Testament when the woman went to her husband and said: The prophet
is coming – we need to build him a chamber – a prophet’s chamber – you know – build him a
little place to stay.
And what the Lord said to me was this:
They didn’t wait until the prophet got there!
That chamber was a seed into his life – into his ministry
And they didn’t wait until he got there and then build a chamber
They did that before he got there
And the Lord said – [when Joe told me what you wanted to do] –
He said: You tell them – This is building the chamber for the prophet
This was done before I even got there
And then once he got there – that seed produced the miraculous!
And I am believing that this is what this seed is going to do!
That this is the prophet’s chamber that you – John and Sharon and the people in the Church
have prepared.
And then when I do come I believe it’s going to manifest in the miraculous!
Ps John: Amen brother Jerry
Brother Jerry: I want you to take this back to the people!
Us: Yes we will brother Jerry – It’s branded in us.”
