[Pastor Sharon singing]. Hallelujah. Let’s sing “Hallelujah.” [Pastor Sharon singing in tongues]. We let our spirit sing to You.
We let our spirits sing, we let our spirits soar, Lord. This is the fourth-dimensional realm, Father, of the Spirit that You’ve created us for. This is how we move and live and have our being in You God. Hallelujah. Face to face. And the things of the world in the earth grow strangely dim in this place, Father. Face to face. Glory to You.
Thank You for Your presence here with us today. Thank You. You’re always with us. But we are always amazed and in wonderment and in awe at Your presence. Every time. Not a trace of familiarity in us is found, Lord. Glory to You, Father. We love Your presence. In Your presence is fullness of joy. Yes, Lord. Fullness of joy, Lord, in Your presence, Lord. Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah. We lift up our hands and we let joy flow out, Father. And we praise You now with the joyful shout, Lord. Hallelujah. Yes, Lord. Hallelujah. Glory, we rejoice in You, Lord. Hallelujah. Yes, Lord. We rejoice in You, Lord. We rejoice in You, Lord. We rejoice in You, we rejoice, we rejoice, we rejoice, Father. Hallelujah, we let joy flow out, Father. We let joy flow out, Lord. Hallelujah. It is our strength, Lord. Oh hallelujah. In Your presence is fullness of joy. Hahahaha, Lord. Oh, Haha Lord. You fill our mouth with laughter and our tongue with singing God. You are great, Lord. You are great inside of us, Holy Spirit. You are wonderful, You are wonderful. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory, glory, glory. We stir ourselves up, Father. We build ourselves up now on our most holy faith to receive Your Word, praying in the Holy Spirit. [Pastor Sharon praying in tongues].
Our spirit speaks to You to prepare for Your Word. [Pastor Sharon praying in tongues].
We receive Your words today Father. [Pastor Sharon praying in tongues]. With faith, with faith in Jesus’ Name. You may be seated. Glory to God. I think I left my glasses in that black case in my handbag, thanks Stef. Good morning to everybody. Glory to God. Thank you so much, Stef. Thank You, Father. Thank You for Your anointing. Thank You Lord, Your anointing is here on Your Word today to remove burdens and destroy yokes of bondage of ways of thinking, of ways of doing things Father, because supernatural increase is on Your mind for us Father and an abundance of blessing Lord. Hallelujah, and so You come to us today through the ministry of sound and song and through the ministry of Your Word to work deeply in our hearts and we bless You for that in Jesus’ Name. We say; Amen.
I’m going to go straight into this message and for those of you who were not here the last time I ministered, you know I said to the Lord, I said, “Lord, these messages You are giving me now, they are of such a kind and such a nature, they are of such an anointing and such a specificity, so specific for our assignment right now and for the supernatural increase You wanting to bring.” I am in fear and trembling before the Lord, I am. Even everything I am saying today Pastor John knows what I am saying today. And so I said to the Lord, “Lord, You know…” Once upon a time I said to the Lord, “What about those people, they didn’t come and they didn’t hear.” He said, “But yeah, they were supposed to. They were supposed to. They are planted here. They’ve been taught to be in the messages. And so that is their responsibility before Me so if they didn’t hear, they should have and they should be.” So that is my liberty, that is my freedom from that burden or any potential sorrow that that might want to bring me of people that should be here listening, that it is available and we’ve been taught well. Glory to God.
So I am on assignment by God, I have a new mantle that God has given me, an added calling that is part of legacy transfer and Pastor John acknowledges it and he witnesses with it. I check everything with him now because through the new open door there is so much that is brand new. Jesus is making all things new as He says in His Word. So I ministered on, this will be part two regards the message, of the titled message I ministered on last time: I Will Take the Children. I will take the children. I will take the children.
God says, God said to us come out of Babylon so that you don’t participate in her sins, and have no share in her plagues. You can go back to that message if you desire to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to you at this time. It’s your choice. They wanted to go back to Egypt. They wanted Egypt. They wanted the Babylon of their time and then God said to them, they said, “We don’t want to go back to Egypt, we don’t want deliverance this way because it comes by faith so we don’t want to do it. We want to do it the way the world does it. We want to do it the way Egypt does it so we want to go back because our little ones, they said, in God’s audience, they said, “Our little ones will be prey.” So we want to take our little ones that God wants to prey on, we’ll take them back to the world’s system. We feel safer there, that our children can do things the way the world does them.” And so God says to them, “Well,” He said to them, “Your children whom you say would be prey, they are going in and you are not. I’m not speaking today to adults as if there are not any Joshua’s and Caleb’s but I don’t know who you are.” I don’t know how you have received God’s Word in your heart. It has been a surprise to Pastor John and I from time to time where we’ve had to deal with certain things in people’s lives and yet they have sat and listened to Pastor John’s and I’s messages for years and years and years. It has been a surprise so we cannot see that you are going into the Promised Land. We do not know.
So that would be your knowing according to the messages that come to you every Sunday because the church at large has got very polished at how they look in front of each other and how they sound and what they say, and the conversations they have, because the pastor preaches to us we will talk like this but it is only your heart that truly chooses to walk into the fullness of the messages that God brings. It’s only God that sees that. It is not up to Pastor John and I to judge that at all. God’s secret weapon of love comes anyway because God the Father has passed all judgement into the hands of the Son. The Son Himself says, “It is the very Word that I bring you that will judge you.” So it is the judgement that you cause to come, or it is the blessing that you cause to come.
And so, but God at this time is saying, “They say our wives and our little ones will be a prey, it’s better for us to go to Egypt” and so God says, 28 …As truly as I live, says the Lord, you’ve spoken into my ears… 29 Your carcasses will fall and all that are numbered among you, according to your whole number from 20 years old and upwards which have murmured against me. 30 Doubtless you shall not go into the land concerning which I swore to make you dwell therein… 31 but your little ones which you said should be prey, I’ll take the children, I will bring them in and they shall know the land which you have despised. (Numbers 14:28-31 KJV)
The Lord had me speak about a father, Lot, who pitched his tent towards Sodom. He pitched his tent towards Sodom and his wife turned into, and his children turned into, because he pitched his tent, right? Towards the world system of Babylon. Jesus is the One that is telling you and telling me today through scripture, I read it to you; Babylon has fallen, that’s the world system. The world system. I read to you, scripture where Jesus calls this world system evil and wicked. It says that Jesus came to die to deliver you from the evil, wicked world system. I am going back too much now because I’ve got lots of places to go today, and it says Lot lingered, alright, and Lot should never have left Abraham even though Abraham said, “Leave me. There is strife here, leave me.” He should have been like Ruth and he should have been like Elisha; as my soul lives, I will not leave you. He should have taken the example that Abraham was to him in the way that Abraham was believing God and following God, but he left easily and he pitched his tent towards the world system of the day and then I finished up by saying, “God was pleading”, Jesus was shedding His tears through my tear ducts. He spoke to me about that on the Monday morning. Pastor John has listened to my message that I brought here by the Spirit of God about three or four times, Pastor Garth has listened, Pastor Christie has listened and they have witnessed that this is the Spirit of God upon me to bring these messages at this time. Hallelujah. I bring it with great love from the heart of the Father.
So my prayer, I said last time I ministered, is for you and for myself. It’s for us as a people. This is a good news today, that all the places of our hearts that we’ve pitched towards Sodom dematerialises through the power of the Word that I bring, that every part of us pitched towards Sodom, that we would desire, every part of us that is pitched in Babylon that our heart would desire, that insincerity and honesty with God, and He will note your response after these set of messages whether you will listen to them or whether you will have a response to them, He will note it because He has sent me on assignment. It will go on record between God and you.
If there is no great change in the kingdom of God in your heart from this, it will not be because you have not known or you could not have known. And so, Father, the words, the blood of Jesus, the Word surrounds us, so every part of us that loves the world and is pitched towards Sodom leaves, helping us to let Jesus pitch His tent and tabernacle in us completely.
I thank You, Father, for the Word today, like fire in us and among us, in Jesus’ name. Heritage of faith Johannesburg, He is not having me minister this way in Witbank. May it burn and do what it is supposed to in the little ones and in all of us and in the little ones. Glory to God and we say; amen.
Hallelujah. I heard Brother Jerry, and Brother Jerry said this, “I heard the Spirit say this.” This is just recently, “This is another defining moment in our lives with what we are going through right now.” Please, please listen carefully, “Everything you are doing and saying right now is determining your entire future, every conversation you are having in your home as husbands and wives with your children right now is determining your whole future. Every conversation you are not having with God is determining your future. This is another defining moment in our lives with what we are going through right now, I sensed in my spirit that this is a Word for the body of Christ. This is a defining moment in your life, in your life, in your life, in your life. This is a defining moment in your life, in your life this is a defining moment, in your life, in your life, in your life. It is a defining moment in my life.”
So this is Brother Jerry’s definition he brought us, it’s like a fork in the road, it’s like coming to a place in your life where you have to make a decision and God has brought you all to this place. You are all in this place, you might not want to be in it, but you are in a place where God has brought you to a defining moment. You can’t pretend it isn’t there for you, it is because God has said “It’s a defining moment,” you can’t say, “It is not for me.” It is for you.
It’s like coming to a place in your life where you have to make a decision to either go left or go right, go here or go there, say this or say that, do this or do that, it’s one of those times when how you act and how you respond and what you decide will determine the direction your life will go in. Right. It can take you on a path that is not the path that God has prepared for you even though it seems right in your own eyes. Proverbs 3:7, 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:7 NKJV) Well, depart from the twisted way where you think you are wise in your own eyes.
Proverbs 12:15, 15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he that hearkens not unto counsel. Well no, he that hearkens unto counsel is wise (Proverbs 12:15 KJV). The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he that hears counsel is wise. Proverbs 16:2-3, 2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart). (Proverbs 16:2 AMPC) Ephesians 2:10, 10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born again]. I will tell you why you are born again. The scripture is very clear, born again to do those good works which God predestined for you, (planned beforehand) for you, [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time] (Ephesians 2:10 AMPC) for you, very specifically and very particularly. That’s why you were born again, you weren’t born again so that you can just be relieved that one day when you die you will go to Heaven and while you are on earth you will do exactly the way you want to. Thank you very much. Right. So you were born again so that you can walk in the paths that God has predestined for you, planned beforehand for you particularly and specifically.
Proverbs 16:25, 25 There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. (Proverbs 16:25 AMPC) Here’s what else it says about the defining moment, or it can take you on a path that God has predestined for you where it is His plan that He knows He has for you that leads to life, where you actually are in the process of fulfilling the very reason you were born for Him and His glory. A defining moment, Brother Jerry went onto say, “This is a defining moment shapes you and causes you to become.”
That defining moment in Lot’s life shaped him and his family and caused them to become. Defining moments that are coming up in Joseph’s brothers’ lives where they could have recognized. Defining moment for them where they decided to sell him out. Many defining moment for Abraham when he obeyed God. Defining moment for Elisha when he had the law of recognition at work when Elijah just came to throw a coat on him on an ordinary day and walk away from him. Right? Defining moments shape you and causes you to become the person you eventually will become. So, it can be the person He sees and knows you can become or what you choose to become or your parents choose for you to become or the world system has imprinted on you that you can become anything you want to be.
Lot’s wife became she turned into, Jesus mentions Lot’s wife in Luke 17, He says, 32 Remember Lot’s wife! 33 Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve and make it alive. (Luke 17:32-33 AMPC). Defining moments in our lives, life-changing moments.
Pastor John has become as a result of his choices. He has become a person of legacy transfer, he’s become a person of devotion and love and irrational honour for fathers, he’s become that. He became that by seeking God’s plan. Elisha, okay the rich young ruler had a defining moment. He went back though. He came to a crossroad but went back.
So, Brother Jerry, what you say, your conversations, what you say, your conversations you are having with yourself, with your husbands, with the world, with your children in your homes, with friends, with best friends. Discussions you are having with best friends; should we do this should we do that. Should we do this should we do that. Holy conversations between best friends say; we should do the will of the Father. We will not initiate our own direction. What you say and what you do right now throughout the remainder of the year will determine your future and what you become.
Right, 2 Timothy 2:20 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also [utensils] of wood and earthenware, and some for honorable and noble [use] and some for menial and ignoble [use]. (2 Timothy 2:20 AMPC). God wants to bring you gold today, you can choose the silver, you can choose the wood, it will be menial use that scripture says. It will be menially used and fit for the master’s use. But God is bringing you gold; ability to be able to go for gold here today in your life.
It says what will you, here it’s the next point, it says what will your children be? Luke 1:60-67,this is the birth of John the Baptist, right, I’m picking up here verse 60 60 But his mother answered, Not so! But he shall be called John. 61 And they said to her, None of your relatives is called by that name. Tradition, culture, tradition, culture. No his name shall be called, she had an honour in her heart and reverence in her heart for the plan of God for her child. God had to make the father dumb, you can’t speak because you’re going tp affect this child’s destiny with your unbelief. What I have created him to be. 62 And they inquired with signs to his father [as to] what he wanted to have him called. 63 Then Zachariah asked for a writing tablet and wrote, His name is John. And they were all astonished. 64 And at once his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he began to speak, blessing and praising and thanking God. And fear came on all these people 66 And all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, Whatever will this little boy be then? (Luke 1:60-66 AMPC) Whatever will this little boy be then?
God is here through this message and the message that will come the next time, and the message I will come with the next time to put a reverential fear of Him in your hearts as parents, that you may never have had before. But here He’s bringing it to you. why? Because He wants to bring supernatural increase and your supernatural increase is dependent on how, if you behave like Abraham, and I will get to that. It says God chose Abraham because he knew Abraham will command his sons after Him and teach them to fear Him. So that’s part of Abraham’s blessing that’s ours. We have to see that too. And you might be here today and say you know what I’ve got grown-up kids and they have gone astray. It should be your primary prayer focus before God to give God no rest until they are fully restored. To hold up all the promises before God as for me, God required that of me.
He required that of Pastor John. Because there was a degree at that time, even then, when God showed us a degree of where the Babylonian system had come into us and He said, “Now you stand for restoration. I require it of you if you want Abraham’s blessing. I require it of you if you want prophecies to come true in your life. I require it of you to stand for My plan and My purpose and My restoration in your children’s lives.” Abraham sacrificed and dedicated his only son completely to God without fear, with faith.
Alright, what will your children be? So it says, whatever will this little boy be then? The Lord showed me that about parents and children that when this baby is born, they should have an awe with Him and say whatever will this little boy be? Whatever will this little girl be? I dedicate him to Thee, I dedicate her to Thee. I’ll not touch what I think they should be with my strong soul and my worldly ways! Alright, I didn’t have to do that. Right. I could have just said. I’ll not touch that. It’s just when there’s a surge of the Spirit sometimes my personality comes out. When there’s a strong surge of the Holy Spirit alright. It’s not God shouting at you. Perhaps it is, just to get your attention. What will become of this child? Clearly God has a hand in this. The Message Bible says. The New American says 66 What will this child turn out to be? For the hand of the Lord is certainly with him. (Luke 1:66 NASB)
I will tell you that from the moment your child was born, God sent that spirit into your womb, into the womb of your wife for His purposes, not for yours. Not for your vicarious living. Not for your realm of reason and relevance and reality but for revelation to come to you so that redemption can come and revolution and that child can be used to revolutionise for Him – bring a revolution in the earth for Him. And Jesus in Luke 18 says, 15 And as they brought unto Him also infants, that He would touch them but when His disciples saw it they rebuked them. What business is it of Jesus to touch children and infants? 16 But Jesus called them unto Him and said let the little children come to Me, and forbid them not. (Luke 18:15-16 KJV)
That’s a word to parents. Let your children come to Me and forbid them not. I don’t forbid them, I want them to, what conversations are you having with them that forbids them from coming to Him? What philosophies, what ideologies, what imprints have your eyes and your soul received from the system of the world that causes you to want to imprint on them? Let the little children come to Me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 I say to you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. (Luke 18:16-17 KJV) Oh Jesus, glory to You. Glory to You.
And then Jesus in, Luke 17, says, 1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. (Luke 17:1-2 KJV) This is a Word to parents from Jesus. Woe unto him through who an offence – if you will bring an offence, I will clarify that to your children. You bring an offence to God because of what you’re bringing to your children, because your children belong to Him. Their spirit comes from Him. I’ve got good news for you with older children – there is nothing that God cannot do for a mother heart that prays and a father heart that says to restore all, to restore all in everything. It’s too late for anybody to tell me that He cannot. I have taken Him at His Word; as for and my house, we will serve the Lord. I remember at one stage I said, “Lord, even if I see no change, I will pray till my last breath and I will trust Your Word. All these many promises that You have given in Your Word to me for my children though they be grown, I will speak them and I’ll declare them, I will believe them and I’ll pray them and I’ll have them, Lord.” It’s a requirement of God so His blessing can come to me.
So, it says here that He should, 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. (Luke 17:2 KJV) The American Standard version says 2 …that he should cause one of these little ones to stumble. (Luke 17:2 ASV) The Amplified says 2 …that he should cause to sin, to miss the mark and the scope of God’s true purpose for him or for her, to be a snare to one of these little ones. (Luke 17:2 AMPC) like Jesus said to Peter, “Peter you’re a snare to me”.
God says today that there have been parents in His Body that have been a snare to their very own children. But this is a time. A snare is to cause a misstep, to trip, to slip up, to blunder and a mishap. The Bible commentary says this; among men, it says this of this verse; among men, those who rear or raise or bring up the royal children, are allowed free entrance with their charge and a degree of familiarity, even the highest state ministers dare not assume. The Lord means this in virtue or of who He has given charge of his born ones into the earth. He has given parents charge for the born one that came from Him. And you should be, you should be rearing them like royal a children because God gives you free entrance with their charge, and a degree of familiarity even the highest state you dare not assume. He has given you charge.
Abraham’s blessing. God knew Abraham would teach his children after Himself and I will get to that the next lesson and to teach them to follow Him and fear Him alone. Abraham did not pitch his tent where Lot did. So we have Abraham, Isaac and Jacob now. Abraham did not pitch his tent where Lot did and so now he is the God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. And he is the God of seed and generations and of what is past down from one generation to another. And He’s cleaning this lineage here because legacy transfer is what He wants to give. You see Pastor John is pressing for legacy transfer and so am I. So God is honour bound to see to it that you get every message you need for you to be part of it. You’ll see next time I come, how completely we can have legacy transfer in this place. It’s part of our legacy transfer is following God’s plan and only God’s plan for our life. It’s transfer from Kenneth Hagin to us. We can’t be selective in what we want transferred. We can’t be selective in what blessing and how we get the blessing. And the blessing of Abraham comes because God chose Abraham because He knew he would command his children after God, teaching to fear Him and Him alone.
So, and all of those who have Abraham as their father, not for the blessing he is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and of all those who have Abraham as their father, not for the, just for the blessing but for what he did with his children, and how he taught them. Dedication, dedication and I’m going to finish. This is another defining moment. A moment in time that defines something, Brother Jerry said, a person’s success or a person’s failure. A point at which the essential nature or character of a person or a group of people is revealed and identified. And I’m going to stop right here, I think I’m going to stop right here.
But I’ll tell you where I’m going to go, I’m going to go with dedication, I want to go and show you the spiritual process and power of dedicating a child only to the Lord, of having a man of God lay his hands on that child, the way Mary and Joseph knew instinctively to take Jesus to the temple. And Simeon and Anna could hold Him, could prophecy over Him.
So, alright, I just have got half a page here. I am going to read it; so when fathers, or mothers because we are going to see what Abigail did, we are going to see what Hannah did with her son, this is not just a thing for fathers. And we are going to see how Timothy, the Apostle Paul says, Timothy, from a child you have known the scriptures because you have got it from your grandmother and your mother. Obviously there was a father who was not following God. Missing, missing in action of rearing this royalty for God. When fathers or mothers don’t circumcise their children, there is a circumcision of the heart as new creatures in Christ Jesus.
Exodus 4:24-26, 24 On the way to Egypt, Moses, at a place where Moses and his family had stopped for the night, the Lord confronted him and was about to kill him. 25 But Moses’ wife, Zipporah, took a flint knife and circumcised her son. She touched his feet with the foreskin and said, “Now you are a bridegroom of blood to me.” 26 (… she was referring to the circumcision.), and the Bible says, the scripture I am reading, After that the Lord left him alone. (Exodus 4:24-26 NLT)
The Bible commentary says this; the meaning is that led during his illness to a strict self-examination, Moses was deeply pained and grieved at the thought of having to please his wife. Mothers do things to their children to please their husbands, and husbands do things to their children to please their wives. So, this was the case with Moses; deeply grieved and pained at the thought of having to please his wife, postponed and neglected the circumcision of one of his sons. To dishonour that sign and the seal of the covenant, was criminal in any Hebrew, particularly so in one so destined to be a deliverer. Okay. It seems that he felt his sickness as a merited chastisement, this is very new, I don’t want to read all of this, for the sinful omission. It was an omission, so it is those things you don’t do. It’s not the things you do do, like come to church, bringing your children to church, I tithe, I read my Bible. It’s deeper, isn’t it. Omission, concerned for her husband’s safety, Zipporah overcomes her maternal feelings of aversion to the painful right, performs herself by means of one of the sharp flints, with which that part of the desert abounds, an operation which her husband on whom the duty evolved but was unable to do. In the case of children the punishment fell upon the parents, and first of all upon the father who had neglected to keep the commandment of God.
You see it is your responsibility, father and mother, to put the fear of the Lord into your children. To teach your children to follow the commandment of God and Him alone. I will tell you that there were times, with our own sons, when Pastor John and I were in that place, and we knew we had to put the sword through right now, we had to put the sword of God’s truth, we have got to run it through them right now. Otherwise, we will be like Eli and we will all just die, not physical death. No plans of God being fulfilled, no promised land, might as well die and go to heaven. If all you want to do is just live on earth like everybody else does in that time.
Okay. And I thank God, I remember, because Pastor John and I, Pastor John is very much prone to overlook, and, no, it’s okay, it’s alright, it’s alright. God has given us to each other to help each other according to God’s Word and God’s truth. I remember the one day, I wailed, I said we have to do this, otherwise you are all done for, and he saw it and he did it. And then again he got it and he saw it and he did it, and so we went up to the point that somebody one day we highly honour from our family in Fort Worth turned around and said it’s because you were parents like that you are where you are now, with God, with God. Glory to God.
So, punishment fell upon the parents, first of all upon the father who has neglected to keep the commandment of God. Now though Moses had probably omitted circumcision simply from regard to his Midianitish wife who disliked this operation he had been guilty which God could not pass over.
Isn’t this good news today? Praise the Lord, praise the Lord. Glory to God. It doesn’t matter where you are as a parent today and I’m going to get to the children. Those of you, I’ll probably share, if Pastor John permits me to, to share the mantle that came on me a few weeks ago; to come to the children of My people. I’m coming to you children of Heritage of Faith. So, we’ll see what that means and I’ve already organised and established prayer. I’m under Pastor John’s blessing and authority that has already kicked in and I’m praying for you, children of My people. I’m praying for you, children of My people. I’m praying for you. “How are you praying for me, Pastor Sharon?” “Father, Your will, and Your will alone be done.” And so there may be parents who say, “But I don’t want you to be praying that for my child.” Really.
Hebrews 13, That we do not watch over the souls and the spiritual wellbeing of your children. Does that not apply to your children? We’re disqualified for that with your children? Tell God that. Tell God that. And you will have what you told God what you want; you will have that. You will account to Him for eternity and in eternity. So I’m praying for you. Earnest, fervent prayer for the children of My people. According to Hebrews 13, we watch over your souls and your spiritual wellbeing, and we are guarding you. We are not just your parents, pastors.
There has to come a time in your heart, children of My people where you say, “Pastor John is my pastor. Pastor Sharon is my pastor. I recognise their place in my life. My parents are not my spiritual oversight. They are responsible to God to train me up in the way that He tells them to train us up. They’ve been given to me by God for what the Bible says that they’ve been given to me by God for.”
So I come to the children of My people with a new mantle on me and it’s such an honour. Thank you, children of My people, that if it’s in your heart that I can come to you in this way like I have this morning. It’s my honour. It’s the love of God in my heart that has moved and put on the heart of God and has put this mantle on me. Hallelujah. Glory to God. And the mantle will be on me to minister to parents; that you will give God no rest until He establishes your seed in Him, and your love, and your faith, and your intercession, and your power of agreement for your children, and your … [Pastor Sharon speaking in tongues.] Save now, Lord, save now, Lord.
And your honesty in your conversations that you’ve had, and things that you see, your repentance with God, which is what Pastor John and I had to do. When it’s at that point where you can start to move forward in your spirit life for your children. Hallelujah. But the children need not fear. Pastor John and I are praying for you, watching for your soul and your spiritual wellbeing. Glory to You.
What an honour. I will be speaking to you the next time about dedication. The power of dedication, dedication. And God is going to speak to some of you parents who have never dedicated. You’ve never even desired to have a man of God, a spiritual godly man, even put his hands on your children. You’ve taken that place for yourself.
I tell you, Pastor John and I have had Brynn and Garth under the hands of Brother Jerry, under the hands. I’m not going to go into all of it. Why? Because there is an anointing, there’s transfer by the laying on of hands and when a man of God will take up a child in his arms because of what’s happening in the parent’s heart. Glory to God. I know you got something out of this. Isn’t this wonderful, isn’t this wonderful? Haa, just give a big sigh, haa and say this with me, say; Thank You, Lord, for speaking words of truth to my heart today, in Jesus’ name.
And now I’m praying for you: I thank You Father, that these words that You have brought will travel and traverse the heart of every single one – My people and the children of My people. My people and the children of My people, Father. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Lord, because it is our dream that we will all go in together. That You will have for Yourself a people spiritually, spiritually adjusted, spiritually right with You, Lord, a people, a people which includes all of the children as well, Father, in Jesus’ name. I pray that these words will burn, Father. Hallelujah. These words will burn in the hearts of everyone of us, Lord, and the words and the blood of Jesus surround and protect every person here and they are blessed going out today and they are blessed coming in and they are blessed in the city and blessed in the field and they have got extreme providence and extreme protection and Psalm 91 prevails over every single person, It shall not come near me, it shall not come near me, it shall not come near me. Hallelujah. It shall not come near me. I allow the sound of that to permeate and penetrate my being. It shall not come near me. Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, in Jesus’ name. The Word and the blood of Jesus surround you, protect you. I release the full force of the power of the Blood to make everything right in your world, in Jesus’ name and we all say, amen.
I give you all a big big big big big, ooh so big, a big hug and I just …[Pastor Sharon blowing kisses to the people], thank you, I love you all.
