Hillary Clinton - DNC Let Every Hidden Thing Be Revealed

We enter into the second convention this week.  I prayed differently this am than I did for the RNC.  For the DNC God led me to pray that "Every hidden thing would be revealed". (Matthew 10:36)  Satan operates in the realm of hidden secrets and deception.  I am asking God to reveal every hidden secret and bring to the surface any deception by the Hillary campaign.  America deserves truth. Our national leaders must have the confidence of the American public to rule with true authority and humility.  Again the prayer of Jesus Himself is right "Let your (God's) kingdom come, Your (The Father's) will be done on earth..." (Matthew 6:10) We are at the cross roads of choice and future direction for our dear land. More important than even the presidential appointment is the future supreme court appointees. This high court holds the future.  Just like Rowe vs. Wade was a landmark decision for the future of abortion, so the future court holds America in it's hands. I did hear at the Republican convention, "One nation under God". That was encouraging. No candidate is perfect, I understand this, but they must be truthful. Hillary has been surrounded by evidence of lies and deception.  I pray she repents and admits it.  This could be her salvation.  Yet I hold little hope.  The Clinton machine is well oiled and has run on it's tracks for many years.  I also am particularly encouraged with Vice President Pence running with Trump. He admits his priorities as first Christian, second family, third politics. Let us pray this week that God shows up on the floor of the Democratic convention.  God is able to speak to the hearts and unveil the real truth. I also know that God can circumvent both the Republican and Democratic parties to accomplish His will for our nation.  With so many real prayer groups and intercessors in America, I hold up real hope for the future of the good ol' USA.  If you have not heard my declaration over our land, please play it below.

Exercising Spiritual Authority Over Cleveland - Saints Arise!

I woke up this morning with a sense of urgency concerning the coming Republican convention next week in Cleveland.  There is concern regarding the number of radical groups that will be marching and protesting. Here is where I have to share what happened in Tampa in 2012.  We had the same concern.  In fact the mayor of Tampa put out a prayer request to our pastors group that over 200 groups had registered in Tampa to protest on the streets outside the Tampa convention center. So the pastors group that I am a part of led by Joe Brown, our city intercessor for over 40 years, went into action. We met at the convention center and drove scripture verses into the ground on wooden stakes all around the convention center. Scriptures that declared protection and God's ownership. We walked around the convention center and prayed, and territorialized the ground and appointed angels to guard the perimeters. The time came for the convention and we were amazed at how God intervened. It had to be one of the worst weather weeks I have ever seen in Tampa.  The rain started on Monday and just continued through the whole week.  In fact there were a couple of days the convention members were not sure they could even get through the storm, but they all made it. But those that didn't make it were the over 200 radical groups that had registered to protest outside the convention center. There was not one major march... all were just washed out.  Ha!  God again showed up and showed off.  I pray in the name of Jesus with declaration of angels appointed all around the Cleveland center, that God will show up again and show off.  I just hope the spiritual leaders of Cleveland have done what we did and physically marched around the center.  There is nothing like marching around a territory and sanctifying it under God's protection.  

Prayer with Spiritual Authority

A Higher Place - Call me out Lord

I have spent years asking God to take me deeper into His presence.  You say, "Well how does that happen?"  Seeking intimacy with God is something personal and sacred. I know when I am there and I know how I hear the heartbeat and voice of God. My soul experiences the joy of His love and peace fills my mind and heart. It comes from laying your head on His breast and asking Him to whisper His kingdom secrets into your ear.  Little wonder Jesus is called the bridegroom and we are His bride. It is one of the beautiful pictures of who He is and who we are.  I have said it often, "God is a hopeless romantic". The love story of the ages is how He seeks us, His bride, and woos us to His side.  I love the kind of music that accompanies intimacy with Him.  I love the loud and high praises of corporate worship, but somehow I see a different sound when making love with Jesus. I must get alone with Him, quiet myself, and draw close. He desires that with us His bride more and anything else. He Himself said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27  I awoke this morning again with news of 84 killed by a truck in France, a coup in Turkey, and the recent memories of Orlando and San Bernardino on my mind and my heart began to ask what is happening to our world?  Then I retreated into my office and put on Kimberly and Alberto Rivera worship and quieted my heart.  Immediately I felt the awesome presence of the Holy Spirit sweep over my heart.  I invite you to come into His presence often.  It is the place where we can dwell as David said, "Oh that I may dwell in the house (Presence) of the Lord all the days of my life."

Beautiful intimate worship with Him

Coming Into Your Abundance - Kingdom Life

One of my favorite verses in the bible is II Corinthians 9:8  "God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, having all sufficiency in all things my have an abundance for every good work."  I had a guest on my nightly television broadcast on channel 42 in Northern California.  Her name was affectionately called "MOM" taylor.  Julia Taylor actually.  But the homeless and needy of Los Angeles called her "MOM".  She always had food and clothing in her warehouse to feed those who came for help. In fact, she had several trucks that just gathered food from the farmers of central California just to supply her warehouse.  She was a "More than enough" saint.  She taught me how to go to the streets of San Francisco and help the homeless which we did for years.  I will never forget a truth "MOM" shared with me one time when I asked her, "Mom, how do you always have so much to give?"  She said this great statement, which I wrote down in my bible and have never forgotten.  "Jerry", she said, "Your ability to give is not based on what you have, but on God's ability to supply.  So the only reason you stop giving is because God is broke!" Well guess what, God isn't broke and never will be.  But how do we release that abundance in our lives?  This above verse is the key.  "God is able..."  We see God act on our behalf when we by faith sow a seed.  Verse 6 of II Corinthians 9 says, "He who sows sparingly will reap sparingly, but he who sows abundantly will reap abundantly."  Verse 12 says, "God will increase the seed you have sown".  I know from growing up on a farm, that the only seed that grows is that which I have put into the ground!  So I challenge you that if finances are tight and you always seem to be lacking, began to sow a great seed.  I am personally testifying that it works!  Check out my short video below...
