The Spirit of the Lord is upon you.
The Spirit of the Lord is in you.
The Spirit of the Lord is on you.
The spirit of the world would try to come upon you but the Spirit of the Lord is upon you.
Matthew 7:13: When you decide to walk on the narrow road that leads to life, you will experience pressure to not go through the narrow gate. The pressure is designed to undermine your faith and to make you doubt that you have the Spirit of the Lord.
The Spirit of the Lord is the advantage factor in your life. The big thing that separates us from everybody else on the earth is the Spirit of the Lord. The only way you can walk on the narrow road to life is if you know that the Spirit of the Lord is upon you.
Joel 2:28, 29: When the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, you shall prophesy. It’s telling from the Spirit of the Lord, speaking into the future, commanding the future to become what the Spirit of the Lord leads you to command your future to look like. We are living in the days where Jesus has poured out of Himself, the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is upon you. This was an intentional transfer, Jesus left so the Holy Spirit could come.
Joel 2:27: He’s in the midst of Heritage of Faith. Come on, you must prophesy. Speak to your money and speak to your relationships and speak to the things that you want that God inspires you to speak into.
9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. That’s how you get to see it. Not with your mind, not with your ear, not with your imagination, but because of the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God (1 Corinthians 2:10 NKJV). When you got the Spirit of the Lord working for you, you can see things that God’s got for you. You can’t see it any other way.
God is intentional about the transfer to you. He wants you to see things, to hear things, to prophesy things. He wants you to have visions and dreams and many other things, because He wants to restore things that the enemy has intentionally stolen from your life. He’s just as intentional to get it back to you and He’s going to do it in such a way that the harvest is going to be one continuous harvest. My threshing floor is going to be full, my vats are going to be full. My land is going to be full. From the land to the vat to the floor (Joel 2:23-26).
How does this transfer work? Matthew 10:7. When God gives you a mission and a purpose, you don’t have to worry about the money. He says just go. Jesus is saying, “I’m intentional about transferring your mission to you and your mission will provide everything that you need.” He transfers purpose, He transfers co-operative calling. And in return, when you do what He says, He transfers all the provisions to you. How’s it going to come? Didn’t Jesus say the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just? So, let them do all the sorrowing and all the work.
God is intentional about the transfer. He says, “Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way, that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. (John 15:4 MSG) You can’t see the vision unless you’re connected. The harvest of your life, your mission, comes through intimate union, Separated, you can’t produce a thing.
The Lord said this whole message that I’m speaking to you today is a standard message, it’s a prophetic message. I want to tell you, by the Spirit of the Lord, that there are waves of blessing that are coming upon you. Waves.
The biggest thing you have to do is make sure that you don’t walk in fear. The devil tries to intimidate you roaring like a lion and trying to say, “You got no defense, you got no difference to everybody else. I’ll roll you into submission. I will roar with financial challenges, I will roar with relationship degradation. I will roar with all manner of thoughts and emotions and oppression and depression and all manner of things.”
And if you for one minute quiver and waver, you will run with your tail between your legs, and you will run so far that you never recovered. Unless you turn back and say, “Come roar, lion, come,” because He’s restoring what you tried to steal.
We have a lion who’s got a much bigger roar. He’s the Lion of Judah. His name is Praise. His name is holy, His name is Jesus. And when you roar with a prophetic word out of your mouth, waves and waves of restoration come back into your life.
Luke 5: Jesus asks the disciples if He can borrow their boat. He uses their business platform, their productivity platform, After He’s done with it, He says to them, “Hey, guys, why don’t you go fishing? I’m giving your business back to you.” See, that’s the thing about God. If you give it to Him, He’s never going to hold on to it. He’s always going to give it back to you. He returns it with the Spirit of the Lord that is upon it.
If you measure your future transfer that God wants to give you as an inheritance by your past, then you will only believe God for so little. You’ve got to see what God’s got for you. He is the difference maker. We have to have the Spirit of the Lord upon us, because He’s the One that can give us visions and dreams, and He’s the One that will cause us to prophesy. Then we can see beyond what we are able to see with our own mind, with our own heart, hear with God’s ears.
Get ready to be astonished. Get ready to be astonished. Get ready to be astonished, people. The Spirit of the Lord is upon you.
I had a prophetic moment with Brother Jerry when I was there. I said to Brother Jerry, “This anointing for property that is upon you, it’s upon me by divine association.” He said, “No, John, the anointing in the favour is on you.” He declared that the favour of God is upon me. I’m not waiting for it to be transferred, it’s upon me. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me today to announce to you that the Spirit of the Lord is upon you. He’s waiting to show you things you cannot see, hear things you haven’t heard and believe Him for things you couldn’t think were possible before.
You’re going to be astonished at what God can do. This is the year of maximum. This is the year of the highest level attainable. This is the year we got to step up and step into the astonishing things that God has got for us.
I don’t know if you’re hearing me. Because the Spirit of the Lord came upon them when they gave their business to Him. He gave it back to them with His anointing on it, and He said, “Now listen, all that money you made from when you were catching fish, don’t take any of it with you. Don’t try and provide for yourself. Go with My authority, go with My anointing, I’ve transferred the Spirit of the Lord that is upon you, I’ve transferred it to you.” Why?
Because now when you are on mission for Me,
that anointing draws all of the provision you can see.
Watch it, it will come and He’ll do it just for fun,
by His Spirit, it will be done.
Not just because it’s fun.
By the Glory of God, it has begun, for His Glory.
He’s showing up,
for His Glory, the transfer is on the up.
God is changing the atmosphere, He’s saying transfer has begun, now it’s time for you to step up and go after it. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t be controlled by what the circumstances say. You have the Spirit of the Lord that is upon you.
I’ll tell you one of the most amazing things that happens when God begins to transfer mission to you, purpose to you, then He begins to provide for you.
And He says, “I’ve got peace upon you that as you are invited and people recognise the Spirit of the Lord that is upon you, they will transfer to you. And as you receive their transfer, you release your transfer which is peace. You leave a blessing with them.”
I say: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. I can see, I can hear and I will live in all the good things that He has for me. I will prophesy. I will dream. I will have visions because the Spirit of the Lord is upon me. In Jesus’ name.
Last week, the Lord said we got to fly, fly, fly and we’ve got to sing. We’ve got to sing. It’s time for us to skip and sing and fly. It’s time for us to just walk into all the good things that God has for us. Do what He says. The Spirit of the Lord is upon you to do what He says.
