CONTEND BY NIGHT in The House of the Lord | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 19 –

CONTEND BY NIGHT! – Stand By Night in the House of The Lord

1 Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD. 2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD. 3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion. Psalms 134

There are certain servants of the LORD that are called to Stand By Night in the House of the Lord.

Wicked Deeds of the Night

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather *reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Ephesians 5 

A couple of weeks ago my wife told me that she visited a pregnancy center, and she got to talking with one of the nurses. The nurse was sharing with her how she knew a young woman who was a part of witch and warlock covens, and she purposefully got pregnant twice just to have an abortion as a sacrifice to satan. She also said that she used to work at a cemetery, and in the morning they often saw dead animals and pentagrams – evidence of satanic sacrifices. She said she called other cemeteries in the area and they all said they had the same things happening. 

Lou Engle has preached extensively on the doctrine of the shedding of innocent blood, and how it actually empowers the demonic realm. So I’ll let you ask him about that. But to me it was amazing that not only is it going on in the Detroit Area, in one of the pretty suburbs… but also that the nurse said it was increasing!

When we reprove these works, and other dark works that are similar, we manifest light and expose them. We fight with them and win because we shine the light on them.

The Power of Blood Sacrifice

26 And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not. 27 Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land. 2 Kings 3

In the Old Testament we saw an example of the power of a blood sacrifice. The King of Moab was having trouble fighting against God’s people. Then he offered his son, and killed him. After that Israel was defeated. 

Yes blood sacrifice is powerful in the demonic realm. But guess what – there is a blood that speaks better and louder than every act of violence, every child-murder, every ritual sacrifice, and every satanic offering. Its the BLOOD OF JESUS. He died once and for all. And since He was a sinless man, His blood is the most powerful.

Contending By Night

One of the reasons that the Lord is raising up the Tabernacle of David is to place His priests and intercessors back in their nightwatch position. They will plead (declare, fight, contend) with the authority of the Blood of Jesus Christ, and easily defeat the satanic sacrifices. Whatever satanic rituals, violence, innocent blood, drunkenness, idol worshipping clubs, bars, concerts, or musical orgies that may be going on in the city will be decimated in power, because the Watchmen will be worshipping the Lord by Night.

If God wakes you up to pray at night, don’t fight it! He could be waking you up to fight something very dark, and the night time is the right time! When you come to The Call on 11-11-11, come to fight and Contend By Night! 6pm Friday -6pm Saturday.

Join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE….

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

Quick Message to Kingdom Promoters

Quick Tips for Kingdom Promoters

I am Truly THANKFUL to God for all of the Kingdom Promoters promoting Jesus thru live events and music!

Most people would think that a bunch of promoters would be jealous and competitive. But in the Kingdom of God it is the opposite!

We rejoice because the gospel of Christ is preached! (Phil 1) We can reach our entire state and nation for Christ if we operate NOT as one organization, but as one Mind and one Spiritual Body.

I encourage you all to:

Keep Faith First

– Use your promotion (message, music, and marketing) to preach the gospel. Do not hide the gospel to increase your promotion. The gospel is the power of God (Rom 1:16). If you use parables, then interpret them so that the meaning is clear, so you can make disciples (Matthew 13). Don’t ever sell out Jesus Christ. Our shield of faith is always up front for protection.

Preach and OutReach

– Hit the streets and promote the gospel of Christ. Always invite nonbelievers that you don’t know. Give away free stuff and do volunteer and outreach ministry.

Go House to House

– Teach your sphere of influence to live the lifestyle of the Kingdom of God. Teach whatever scriptures you learn on a weekly basis. Do bible studies. Throw house parties. Host prayer meetings. People need brotherhood, house-to-house fellowship, and lifestyle discipleship, not just stage-to-stage-to-stage-to-stage ministry. Those days are officially over. Stage-to-stage ministry alone leaves people empty and immature as professional spectators.

Stay 50/50

– Match your ministry-to-others time with your ministry-to-the-Lord time. If you are hosting a 3 hour event, first minister to the Lord in your closet for 3 hours. You can call it “50/50.” This will keep you balanced.

God Bless You to Be Fruitful and Multiply!

SoS

GUM: Growth. Unity. Music.

G- Growth in the Kingdom

Growth in the Kingdom is:

1. Seeking God’s Kingdom within You!

2. Adding souls to the Christian Lifestyle!

YOUR Growth in the Kingdom

The Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU!

….The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you! -Jesus, Luke 17

The Kingdom of God is IN YOU through your Knowledge of Jesus and of his Word, and you are always growing in that by studying, saying, obeying, and doing his Teachings, (the Bible).

But what are some other shortcuts & accelerators? How else can you grow in the kingdom?

Seek the Kingdom! Jesus instructions on seeking the Kingdom are in Matthew 6:

3: But when thou doest alms..
7: But when ye pray..

16: Moreover when ye fast..

19: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth..

31: Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat.. Drink.. be clothed?

33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness..

Matt 6

Read the rest for more details; but this is the basic outline on the “Seeking the Kingdom“ chapter..

1. Giving– giving to the poor and to the ministry and to brothers/sisters shows you how to seek heaven`s treasure more than earth`s, And THEN YOU`LL GET HEAVEN`S TREASURES.

2. Praying– Giving time in prayer will DEFINITELY make God`s Power & Favor overflow in your life. You will also Hear Him more! This is Exciting!-)

3. Fasting- Giving your energy to God by giving up food for a day or few will make your soul humble and give you more Kingdom Power and Supernatural Energy. You will also Hear Him a LOT more! This is Very Exciting!-)

4. Don`t Lay Up Treasure on Earth– just use what you need to support yourself and your family.

5. Don`t Worry about food and clothing!- God will provide!

OUR Growth in the Kingdom

We see a model for OUR Growth in the Kingdom of God in Acts 2:42. There was a great number of people getting saved AND PARTICIPATING in the LifeStyle. God didn’t say 3000 people just answered an altar call, He said 3000 souls were ADDED to them. This means they had 3000 additional People participating in their Doctrine Studies, Fellowships w/food, and Prayer Meetings.

41: Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42: And they continued steadfastly in the apostles` doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

46: And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47: Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Acts 2

This means they joined the Kingdom`s continual lifestyle of Loving God and loving Each Other. Before that day, there were only a few (like 120, Acts 2:1) people who were really following Jesus, meeting and praying together. After the Holy Ghost came and the Word was preached, 3000 people were added to that group of people that were studying the Teachings of Jesus, having fellowships with Food, and having Prayer Meetings. In Acts 2:42 I see 3 elements to that lifestyle:

  • apostles` doctrine – teachings from Jesus and about Jesus and His Kingdom
  • fellowship & breaking of bread – togetherness, and eating
  • prayers – meeting together and praying

42: And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Acts 5

In the Temple AND House to House

In Acts 5:42 we also see a similar principle. Its important not only to go to a temple or church building, but also to open up your house to Jesus and to people!

9: Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 1 Peter 4

1: Let brotherly love continue.
2: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13

2: A bishop then must be.. given to hospitality..1 Timothy 3

Do Bible Studies, fellowships with food, and prayer meetings at your house! You will be helping the Kingdom of God to grow!

The Lord of hosts also commands YOU to do this! Especially now in the last days!

7: But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
8: And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
9: Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

1 Peter 4

definition of watch – Strongs # 3535 – nepho

1. to be sober, to be calm and collected in spirit

2. to be temperate, dispassionate, circumspect

definition of charity – Strongs # 26 – agape’

1. brotherly love, affection, good will, love, benevolence

2. love feasts

definition of hospitality – Strong’s # 5382 – philoxenos

1. hospitable, generous to guests

This scripture shows the atmospheres that Christians are to be setting in the last days. It’s a sober atmosphere of prayer, brotherly love, love feasts, and generous hospitality. If you read the next two verses (1 Peter 4:10,11), you’ll see that it’s an atmosphere where everyone should use their gifts with God’s confidence and power!

UNITY

Unity is important for the Body of Christ. It was one of Jesus’ last prayer requests’ that His people would be set apart by the truth and that they would be ONE!

19: And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21: That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

John 17

Notice in that verse 21 that Jesus said if we are One, the world might believe that the Father has sent Jesus! To me, that’s a Great Promise, and it shows that Unity is a HUGE Evangelism tool!

Unity is in the Mind

Unity does not necessarily mean that everybody has to be in the same place, or go to the same church.. There’s not a building big enough to hold everybody that loves Jesus! BUT true Unity is in the mind, when everyone knows and believes and speaks the same truth about the Kingdom of God.

5: Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
6: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15

Out of all the attributes of God, why did He describe the God of Patience and Consolation to be the one that grants us to be likeminded towards one another? I’m so glad you asked!-)

WHAT DO WE DO?- to increase Unity in the Body of Christ?

Exhortation & Consolation

Exhortation- consolation, `calling near` or to encourage, urge, give advice

When you talk to someone in a consoling or encouraging way, call someone to come to a fellowship, or send them a letter, an email or text message, you are `calling them near.` It is much easier to have Oneness of Mind when there is open communication, edifying communication, and `calling near.` God told us to consider each other, and to provoke each other to walk in love and good works as we exhort or `call near` one another.

24: And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10

Consider Others- Provoke Love and Good Works- Exhorting (Calling Near) Others– Don’t Forsake Others!

Patience, Humility, Forgiveness, & Hard Work

Whenever you have relationships, you’re going to get hurt. Friendship is Bloody. Jesus gave his Blood and His Life so we could be his friends. So it`s important to work in forgiveness and forbearance if you want to have Unity…

..walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2: With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3: Endeavouring to keep the Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ephesians 4

Look at all the words that surround the scripture on Unity:

Vocation: Calling, Invitation

Lowliness: Humbleness of Mind, Lowliness

Meekness: Gentleness, Mildness, Meekness

Longsuffering: Patience, Endurance, Steadfastness, Slowness to Avenge

Forbearance: to Endure, Hold Up, Suffer, Bear With

Endeavoring: Work Hard, Labor, Diligence, Haste, Exertion

Wow! Wherever you find Unity of the Mind & Spirit, you’ll find humility, forgiveness and people working hard!

You really need a God of Patience and Consolation for all that! Let’s Call Him Jehovah El Patience & Consolation!-)

M.usic to Fill your Heart with the Word&Spirit of God

Music Helps you to live out God’s Commandments.

Make up songs and sing them to the Lord, and it will be a lot easier to live right.

Good Scripture-Based Songs also can renew your mind and teach you how to think.

Good Music fills your soul with the Spirit of God, as we can see in Ephesians 5:

18: And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19: Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Ephesians 5

That means you can use music to fill your heart with the Spirit!

Good Music fills your soul with the Word of God, as we can see in Colossians 3:

16: Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3

That means you can use music to fill your heart with the Word!

When you have The WORD of God AND the SPIRIT of God, you have a POWERFUL COMBINATION!-)

That should give you an idea of the Power that can flow through music!

Make sure you use your music well!

If the Word of God, and the Spirit of God fill your soul through your use of music, are there other ”words” and other ”spirits” that can fill your soul also? YES! Watch out for music inspired by false understandings and wrong attitudes.

The music you listen to is very important. Never submit your soul to music that is not Biblical or spiritually right.

I used to use some of these excuses:

”But I don’t believe it; I just listen to it”

”I don’t listen to the lyrics; I just like the beats because they sound good”

The Bible Says: Faith comes by hearing (Rom 10:17)..

So if you continually and willfully HEAR music with lyrics that are unbiblical, you will BUILD UP YOUR FAITH IN A LIE. Then you will wonder why you have become spiritually stupid, desensitized, and unmotivated to live fully in the Kingdom. I’ve seen this happen to brothers & sisters in Christ over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over.. and over again.

Keep Your Soul Clean!
