“But this morning, when I was spending time with the Lord, a strong prophetic
mantle dropped on me and I have to obey God now based on what He told me to
do this morning”. “He told me to read this Scripture over us today and I want you
to understand something that when He talks about camels and sheep and goats and
vineyards and produce, He is talking about business transactions, companies, money,
deals, sales, opportunities. He’s talking about all manner of productivity”.
Isaiah 60:1-22 NKJV, I 1 Arise, shine, for my light has come, and the glory of the
Lord is risen upon me. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, it shall
touch people around me and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will arise
over me. I’m not moved by the economic circumstances that are being spoken about
in this nation and continent. The light of Jesus has come to shine and rise upon me
and I can have economic prosperity wherever there is economic downturn. And His
glory will be seen upon me. 3 The gentiles shall come to my light. And kings to the
brightness of my rising. CEOs and managing directors and entrepreneurs are going
to come to me to find out what the solutions are because they will not understand
how God is blessing me in these days. Kings are going to come to me.
I 4 Lift up my eyes all around and see. They all gather together they come to me.
My sons shall come from afar. Streams of income and opportunity are going to come
to me. And my daughters shall be nursed at my side. Raising new opportunities
around me. 5 Then I shall see and become radiant and my heart shall swell with joy
because the abundance of the seas (of economics) shall be turned to me, and the
wealth of the gentiles shall come to me. 6 The multitude of camels shall cover my
land and the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah all those from Sheba shall come
from everywhere, from the US, from the UK, from Australia, from South America they
shall come to me. They shall bring gold and incense; all manner of beautiful things
shall come and they shall proclaim the praises of the Lord. 7 All the flocks of Kedar
shall be gathered together to me. The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to me.
They shall ascend with acceptance on God’s alter and He will glorify the house
of His glory. That’s us. 8 Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their
roosts? 9 Surely, the coastlands shall wait for Him and the ships of Tarshish will
come first to bring my sons from afar, their silver and gold with them, to the
name of the Lord my God and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified
me. 10 The sons of foreigners shall build up my walls and their kings shall minister
to me. For in His wrath He struck me but in His favour, He has had mercy on me.
If I’m going wrong, this is a picture of me, You are going to discipline me and then
You’re going to favour me. I take the discipline so I can get the favour.
11 Therefore, my gates shall be opened continually. They shall not be shut day
or night that men may bring to me the wealth of the gentiles and their kings in
procession. They’re going to stand lined up to do business with me. 12 For the nation
and kingdom which will not serve me shall perish and those nations shall surely
be utterly ruined. 13 The glory of Lebanon shall come to me. The Cyprus, the
pine, the box tree together to beautify the place of God’s sanctuary and He will
make the place of His feet glorious. 14 Also, the sons of those who afflicted me
shall come bowing to me. If people don’t want to do business with me, eventually,
they are going to come and hand me their business. This is what God moved upon
Pastor John this morning. 14 And all those who despise me shall fall prostrate at
the soles of my feet and they shall call me the city of the Lord, Zion of the Holy Finance and Healing
One of Israel. 15 Whereas I have been forsaken and hated, so that no one went
through me, God will make me an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.
What God’s busy with us here, is not just for us. It’s for the generations to come.
God needs us as a people to stand for our message, and the way we’ve created
relationships, based on the Word of God, we are not a church that is a programme
driven church. We are not a church that is about hype, and all kinds of manner of
things. We are a church that is based on the Word of God. We are a church based on
the relationship we have with God, and we have a relationship with each other in God.
It’s a generational church this.
16 I shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, and milk the breast of kings; I shall know
that He, the Lord, is my Savior and my Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 Instead of bronze He will bring gold, instead of iron He will bring silver, instead
of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. In other words, productivity from the
little to the great. From the insignificant to the abundant, magnificent. He will also
make my officers peace, and my magistrates’ righteousness. 18 Violence shall no
longer be heard in my land, Neither wasting nor destruction within my borders;
But I shall call my walls Salvation, And my gates Praise. God the Glory of His
People: 19 The sun shall no longer be my light by day, nor for brightness shall
the moon give light to me; But the Lord will be to me an everlasting light, and
my God my glory. I will not live by the natural things I can see. I’ll be driven by the
supernatural things that God will show me. I’ll not be driven by human vision, I will
be driven by God’s-vision. I’ll not be driven by human economics, I’ll be driven by
God-economics. 20 My sun shall no longer go down, nor shall my moon withdraw
itself; For the Lord will be my everlasting light, And the days of my mourning
shall be ended. 21 And also my people shall all be righteous; they shall inherit the
land forever, the branch of God’s planting, the work of His hands, that He may
be glorified. 22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong
nation. He, the Lord, will hasten it in its time. A little one – a little one. If I feel like
I’ve got to start a business deal that’s just a small business deal, it isn’t, I just think of it
as a “little one” or a “small one” because not very far from now it’s going to become
a great thing. (The television coming to look for Pastor John is an example of a small
one becoming a great thing. “But suddenly, a small one became a nation, a little one
became a thousand”).
Isaiah 61:1-11 NKJV, 1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord
has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the
brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison
to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day
of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn
in Zion, to give me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment
of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that I may be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. 4 And I shall rebuild the old
ruins, I shall raise up the former desolations, and I shall repair the ruined cities,
the desolations of many generations. 5 Strangers shall stand and feed my flocks,
and the sons of the foreigner shall be my plowmen and my vinedressers. 6 But I
shall be named the priests of the Lord, they shall call me the servants of my God.
I shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory I shall boast. 7Instead of
my shame I shall have double honour, and instead of confusion I shall rejoice in
my portion. Therefore in my land I shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be
mine. 8 For God, the Lord, love justice; He hates robbery for burnt offering; He
will direct my work in truth, and will make with me an everlasting covenant. 9 My
descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and my offspring among the Finance and Heal
people. All who see us shall acknowledge us, that we are the posterity whom the
Lord has blessed. 10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my
God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me
with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth
its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so
the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the
nations (Isaiah 61:1-11 NKJV).
Make it personal and speak it every day: “Now I want to tell you that this is the
Word the Lord gave me this morning. And He said He is going to reverse things, and
He’ is going to restore things. I just got through reading this passage of scripture, that
those things that have been laid waste, those things that have been broken down,
He is going to bring them back to their original state, which means He reverses them
and He restores them. Hallelujah. I’m going to encourage you to take this passage of
Scripture, put in whatever you want to do there in terms of camels and goats and all
kinds of people coming from Tarsus, you call your city, call the town, call your business,
call your whatever and write it out for yourself. Type it out for yourself, whatever you
want to do. And make it as a declaration, and begin to speak this over your life every
Instruction of the Lord – Pastor John lays hands and prays for people who have
significant and serious sickness and disease in their bodies. “Now, this is just the way
the Lord uses this vessel. The way I pray over these people, just because they’re not
falling over, just because there is no outward demonstration, that there are all kinds
of stuff happening, doesn’t mean to say that they have not received their healing.
They have received their healing in Jesus’ name. They have received their healing.
The people prayed for lay hands on all the people who have any manner of sickness
and disease. “The Bible says, if you are a believer, you can lay hands on the sick and
they will recover. It doesn’t need me, it just needs a believer. If you are a believer, then
you can be healed and you can pray for the sick and they shall recover”.
Faith in the healing God: “So, here’s what the Lord told me this morning. He said to
me, “John, I don’t want people to have faith in the God that is in you. I want them to
have faith in the Healing God.” And He works through any vessel He chooses. He will
work through that vessel”.
Not one sick among us: “I’m believing that there will not be one sick among you, not
one sick, not one sick among, not one sick, not one, not one, not one, not one, not a
single one, not a single one in Jesus’ name.’’
Debt free: “I want to tell you if you have got yourself into a bad financial situation
that you need debt reversal I am here to tell you, the Lord spoke to me this morning
and he said: “I am going to reverse your circumstances, I’m going to reverse you out
of debt supernaturally if you will believe me and put the Word of God in your heart.”
He’s going to reverse your bad decisions; He’s going to restore your life. How’s that
possible? I don’t ask God how he’s going to fix things. I just know that he can and that
He will. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Glory to Jesus. Wow!”
Pastor John prays for couples that want to be pregnant in the next 12 months.
