Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 1 –

Summary of Principalities and Strongholds that will Bow to Jesus Tonight in Detroit

This is a summary of the revelations of Principalities and Strongholds in Detroit that God has given me and my wife through dreams, interpretations, our testimony, and the Word of God. We will be sharing the testimony in our upcoming book.

A local Bishop asked me to send them to him because God had shown him something similar about 5 points of repentance that were needed in the church. So I listed them in a nice pretty outline, with some links to teachings on this blog about them. It was deep, I actually sent them on October 31, which happened to be the same day Martin Luther posted his 95 theses for the Reformation. I did’nt even know that at first. Now you get to see the outline!

These are things that we have been repenting about at DaHOP (Detroit Area House of Prayer).  Our basic premise is Matthew 16 and Matthew 18. The Church already has All the Authority. “If it’s bound, the Church bound it. If it’s loosed, the Church loosed it.” When our obedience is fulfilled, God can revenge all disobedience (2 Corinthians 10). Therefore, we must repent and allow God’s word to change our minds if we want to see change, because it’s mostly our fault (Daniel 9, iRepent). We must repent from:

  1. Tolerating Jezebel– Toleration of Compromise, Spiritual Fornication, Teaching Idolatry
    1. Music and Ministry that mixes, and partners with the World (fornication). Christian musicians and singers and preachers that partner with the world usually end up in spiritual or natural fornication or adultery, or divorced. The natural is just a reflection of what they’ve already done spiritually.
    2. Music and Ministry that copies and follows the World (teaching God’s servants to eat food that has been sacrificed to idols). The best way to teach is by example. If our singers, rappers, and musicians copy and remix with the world, they pollute the whole church.
    3. Detroit has been the prototype city for allowing our Levitical sons and daughters to be seduced by Jezebel instead of giving God pure worship. From mammon and politically focused preachers to our compromising singers, we let God’s Levites make music about money and adultery instead of worshipping Him.
    4. There is a famous Detroit pastor who sang, sold his sermons, charged exorbitant fees to speak, had several adulteries, broken marriages (apostasy is divorce), and had a baby by a 13 year old in his own congregation. He encouraged his daughter to mix with the world and sing soul music for money. All this was done in the 1930s and 1940s, and we tolerated it – even celebrated this. Now we have generations that worship talent instead of God, so they are easily deceived.
    5. Afterwards, Motown became the prototype record label to all the labels that exist now. Their first hit song was “Money, That’s what I want.” Their second was “Gotta Shop Around.” Idolatry and Adultery. Most of their musicians and singers were children from the Church. Even the Beatles first hit song was a Motown song (Money, That’s What I Want). The negative and positive influence of Detroit on the world is mind-boggling.
    6. Even some of our gospel music copies and steals from the world – rejecting God’s creativity. We think it reaches more people, but according to Jesus – Jezebel’s doctrine is the depths of satan.
    7. There are serious repercussions to tolerating Jezebel, some of the most serious repercussions in the 7 letters to the Churches Revelations 2-3.
    8. Lustful looks among men, Sexual Dress among women
    9. Jezebel Exposed (in the Church)
  2. Judas’s Pragmatism– Betraying the Will and Purpose of God by following our own Mind and doing “What Works”
    1. The Detroit region is a stronghold for pragmatism. The industrial mentality can become “pragmatic” which is an extreme version of practicality. Henry Ford was known to be very practical, and influenced by pragmatism. Obviously, practical thinking can be used for good. However, pragmatism as a philosophy can be very evil. Henry Ford was known to be anti-Semetic. We do not know if his pragmatic way of thinking was the cause of his anti-Semetism.
    2. “Enemies of the cross, mind earthly things” – Philippians 2. Practical thinking that is not rooted in obedience to God’s will is pragmatism and self-worshipping disobedience. Earthly mindedness leads to satan entering in your mind. Jesus called both Judas and Peter satan when they exhibited earthly mindedness.
    3. Judas was earthly minded. God got His will done anyway, but “woe to him that betrays the Son of man.” We betray the purpose of our single lives, our families, our ministries, our churches when we put our will to do what we think will work above the scripturally stated will of God for each ministry.
    4. We Are Responsible for Abortion (The Judas Kiss). Racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger got family planning and birth control accepted in the church for “pragmatic” reasons nearly 40 years before abortion was legalized. She had genocide in her philosophies, but she didn’t say it outright. In the name of women’s health, contraception, and family limitation, she convinced us that children were a loss, not a profit; we should limit our families to what we think we can afford pragmatically. Her motto in her publication – Woman Rebel was “No Gods, No Masters.” We let her in the church and loosed it with our own authority.
    5. Contrary to popular belief, Margaret Sanger was NOT pro-abortion, she was against abortion, and she promoted birth control and family limitation. The anointing of motherhood is the only thing that stops the spirit of abortion which comes from family limitation. The root of abortion is not a law, it’s a mindset of pragmatism related to family.
    6. Some of us lose the anointing for increase because we purposefully limit God’s increase of godly seed. Earthly mindedness makes us think backwards. Purpose creates income, income doesn’t create purpose.
    7. We can’t point at Democrats, or Republicans, Obama, or Perry/Cain/Ron Paul to end abortion when we have all the authority. We are above them. Get birth control and family planning out of the church and abortion falls in the government, guaranteed.
  3. Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks– Using Our tongues against our brothers, Ministries who’s purpose is to tear down and steal from other ministries
    1. Using our tongues like dogs. Speaking negatively about other people, other ministries, other races, other churches.
    2. In many churches, every sermon has a “diss” of someone elses ministry in it. “That big church” “That small church” “That Baptist dollar” “Those Holy rollers”. “White people”
    3. We have authority over the atmosphere in our city… so Why is our city so violent? How is gang warfare any different from using our tongues against other churches? Our mouths and especially our pulpits create atmosphere.
    4. Destroying Dog-tongues and Wolfpacks. We need to create a culture of thanksgiving, blessing, honor, and intercession for people made in the image of God.
  4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites– Worshipping Traditions and Dead Men instead of following the Holy Ghost
    1. Resisting the Holy Ghost instead of at least supporting the new things that God Sovereignly does in each generation. Traditions make the Word of God void of power. In the past Detroit has been one of the most tradition – loving cities.
    2. We need to honor the old, and support the new. Both the New Wine and the Old wine can be preserved.
    3. Return the hearts of the Fathers to the Children, and the Hearts of the Children to the Fathers.
    4. Dead Men’s Bones and Hypocrites – It affects the legacy of the next generation. We destroy our children spiritually when we don’t allow them to create new wineskins for God’s new wine to flow in.
  5. Division and Thieves: racial division and denominational division, not being a house of prayer for all nations.
    1. We need to stop being the world’s best example of racial division on every Sunday. It’s loosed in the world because it’s loosed in the Church. We need desegregation in the Church.
    2. Being a place where thieves can hide, instead of a house of prayer for every ethnic group. Our di-vision makes our vision smaller, and therefore we don’t feel the need to pray night and day for all nations.
    3. This is also related to Judas and Jezebel, because it has to do with the purpose of God for the Church, and also the Music Ministry. If thieves steal the house of prayer from the Church, it’s a den of thieves. If Levites can’t or won’t be employed to worship God day & night, Jezebel and Judas have victory over them and steals their calling.
    4. Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus and Mouth on Christ
    5. The House of Prayer for every nation requires unity, regionally and racially.
    6. A House of Prayer for Every Ethnos
    7. Dividing ourselves from each other instead of finding agreement in our different roles.
  6. *Bonus* Babylon Business Principles in the Kingdom of God: brand warfare, usury, false balances, manipulation, slavery, witchcraft (pharmakia)
    1. Building our brands over being concerned with people.
    2. Putting profit before truth.
    3. Defrauding each other to the point where we need lawyers to judge.
    4. Embracing usury and debt, enslaving Gods’ people.
    5. Not keeping communication and transactions in simplicity (Romans 12).
    6. The Fear of the Lord is the Key to Economic Development.
    7. Whiskey River?
    8. Spiritual Sharecropping.
    9. This one is a bonus, because originally I didn’t have it as an iRepent event. I saw it as a Christian business problem more than a church problem. But I included it here because I heard a local presentation – on how Industrial Sharecropping effectually continued some to the basic tenets of slavery in Detroit until the 1980s – that enlightened me to the possibility of spiritual sharecropping.
    10. The church has all authority, so if it’s loosed, it’s because we loosed it. If slavery lasted until the 1980’s here, then the Church here was responsible. We may need repentance in some of these areas of our business principles.

Where Sin Did Abound, May Grace Much More Abound! We believe that when these false heads and spiritual strongholds are repented of, chopped off, and destroyed, The Body will be able to put our full focus on Jesus Christ, the Beautiful One.

This has been a tough journey, so I feel like saying something really dramatic here… but I’ll just drop the mic and say “Amen.”

Spirituals and Naturals on Fasting | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 2 –

Spirituals and Naturals on Fasting

First question – Is fasting a new covenant spiritual practice?

Answer: Yes, now that Jesus is physically not here, his disciples who love the bridegroom will fast. Fasting doesn’t change God, fasting changes Jesus Christ’s disciples that do it. It makes them a new wineskin, opens their soul to believe more and recieve more from God’s Spirit. 

14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying , Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can *the children of the bridechamber mourn , as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come , when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast . 16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh *from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break , and the wine runneth out , and Matthew 9.

 How do we fast?

Answer: Secretly, before God. You don’t have to hide it, and its not a sin if someone finds out that you are fasting. The main point is not to show off or make it obvious, just show it to God. Of course, corporate fasts may have to be publicly announced, since they involve a whole group of people (Joel 2).

16 Moreover when ye fast , be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast . Verily I say unto you *, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest , anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast , but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly *. Matthew 6

What should we fast for?

Answers: The first reason to fast is Bridegroom love and hunger for God (Matthew 9). The other reasons are to loose the bonds of wickedness, let the oppressed go free, to break wicked spiritual powers, to give to the hungry, to relieve spiritual and economic burdens, and to get guidance and spiritual light in your soul. We do NOT fast for arguments, strife, and debate, and to point fingers at people we don’t agree with. We do NOT fast to get power to wrestle against people, but to wrestle against principalities and powers of oppression that are decieving people and oppressing people(Ephesians 6).

4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen ? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? 6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen ? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward . 9 Then shalt thou call , and the LORD shall answer ; thou shalt cry , and he shall say , Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58

What’s the Best thing to Do while fasting?

Answer: Sit with God, Talk to Him, Sing to Him, Read the Word, Pray for People.

What are some different types of fasts?

Answer: Here are some different fasts, some biblical, and some that I made up, in order from hardest to easiest:

40 day water: No food for 40 days, just water. (Moses, Jesus).

Esther Fast: No food No Water 3 days. This is an extreme fast because its done with no water. Anything longer than this and you might die, so I don’t suggest trying to extend this one.

Lifestyle Fast – 3 day water: No food for 3-21 days. These can be done once a month, to once a quarter, to once a year, depending on your schedule and your desire for God.

Quick Fast: No Food or Water for 24 Hours. I made this one up, its like an Esther fast cut in 1/3rd. You can do this weekly.

Daniel 1 Pulse Fast: Only Eat Fruits & Nuts, Beans & Vegetables, and Water to Drink: (Only plants: no bread, or meat, or sweets). Can be as long as you want it.

Daniel 10 No Meats No Sweets Fast: No meats, No sweets, or pleasant bread. Regular bread is ok. Can be as long as you want it.

Fave Media Fast: This is a fast from your favorite source of entertainment media. Whether it be a certain website, social network, sport show, radio show. I like basketball, but I fasted all basketball related media (websites, video games, tv) for 40 days.

Dragon’s Flood Fast (Revelations 12:15,16): Satan sends a flood of filth from his mouth through entertainment and media  to drown God’s people. The Dragon’s Flood fast is removing your eyes, ears, and mind from all of the wickedness that satan promotes through entertainment and media to drown your spirit (adultery based storylines, foul comedies, talk show hosts with poisonous attitudes, porn/lingerie/swimsuit media, secular music, secular movies). This is a fast I made up, but its based in scripture (2 Corinthians 7:1). I know people that have done it and been delivered from demons, deception, and spiritual ignorance. This is the easiest fast, and should probably be permanent!

Let’s do a Quick Fast or a Lifestyle Fast for The Call!

A Notable Miracle | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11:11:11 – Day 3 –

A Notable Miracle

We want everyone to believe God for BIG things to happen on 11-11-11! Not only at Ford Field, but all over the nations. There are major prayer gatherings happening all over the world. Its the Global Day of Worship. There are stadiums being filled with prayer and worship in Egypt, in Australia, and in many other places… Not to mention that The Call will be streamed live across the planet on www.godtv.com. The last time the Body of Christ was on one accord like this, something MAJOR happened:

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come , they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance . Acts 2

When the Holy Ghost comes like rushing mighty wind, He blows fire on His body, and they are filled with the Holy Ghost and manifest gifts of the Spirit. There was another time when the people of God were threatened by their enemies of tradition and religion. The people of God came together and prayed on one accord. Do you know what happened? Boldness came, the place shook, people were healed of sicknesses and diseases, and practical unity manifested.

29 And now, Lord, behold *their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 And when they had prayed , the place was shaken where they were assembled together ; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. 32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither *said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Acts 4

Let’s pray that as the Body of Christ is on one accord again on 11-11-11, God would manifest a notable miracle!

Dreams: A Seal of Instruction | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 4 –

Dreams: A Seal of Instruction

Part of our journey includes learning how to hear God’s voice through dreams. In the past I haven’t paid much attention to my dreams. My interaction with dreams was very few and far between. I had a few here and there, and I have a couple of dream interpretation books to help me out… but it was never a part of my consistent communication with God. Then I got married:-)

My wife is a dreamer, and she comes from a very prophetically gifted family. We had so many terrible dreams the first few years of our marriage, and we did not understand any of them. I used to try to comfort her, pray for her, plead the blood over our bedroom, rebuke demons, etc…

Then some of the dreams started to show up in our lives, and we figured out that maybe the dreams were warnings from God. Even though I didn’t dream much, I was good at interpreting them. But some of these dreams wer so weird, it wasn’t until this past year that we really were able to interpret all of them. Now we are using the insight God gave us in everything we do! (We also have a book of dreams, testimonies and interpretations coming soon, be on the lookout). (Yes that was a shameless plug).

Lou Engle is known for his desire for revival, and teaching Nazirite consecration to Millenials. But if you listen to him, he also is a man that really knows how to hear God’s voice through dreams. God has given so many people so many dreams about The Call we can hardly keep track of them!

 Anyone that has read the bible knows that God spoke to many men through dreams (Joseph, Paul, Joseph, Daniel, etc…)

 14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; 16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, 17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. 18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword. Job 33

God speaks to us several times. He’ll give you a thought, then He’ll remind you of a scripture. Then somebody will say something deep to you. Then after all that, occasionally a dream can be that final seal on God’s instructions for your life. He does this to people when they are slumbering in deep sleep. He opens their ears when they aren’t distracted and busy with everything else. Your brain is active when you dream.

 

Instruction:

discipline, correction

Seal:

seal, signet, signet-ring

A seal is a stamp of the King’s Authority.

Check your dreams, interpret them, and confirm them with scripture to put God’s seal on His instructions for your life. God speaks to you, so believe Him to hear His voice while you sleep. Write your dreams down.

I still don’t remember my dreams as much as my wife does, but when I do I definitely hear the voice and instruction of God… and things become very clear!

Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus, One Mouth on Christ | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 6 –

Real Unity – One Mind on Jesus, One Mouth on Christ

As we prepare for the Call, one thing we need to pray about is Unity in the Church. Unity is actually Jesus the King’s #1 evangelism strategy. He prayed that we would be one, so that the world could believe in Him.

 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 17:21

But what is real unity. Real Biblical Unity is not ecumenicalism, its not putting aside our beliefs, its not everybody joining the same organization, or sitting in the same building. True Unity is conforming our beliefs to the image of Christ and the Word of God. Real unity is found in Romans 15

6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6

One Mind – Thinking the same things about Jesus Christ.

One Mouth – Saying the same things about Jesus Christ.

When we look at Jesus Christ long and hard enough in His Word and by His Spirit, we all will start seeing the sames glorious and beautiful things about Him. Then we will be changed into His image. We will stop fightiing with our different roles, and see each other connected to Christ. We will chop off every false head, principality, stronghold or idol that leads us away from Him. We won’t be in disagreement about Jesus, we will be in agreement with Jesus and about Jesus.

Every ministry will think the same things about Jesus. Every ministry will say the same things about Jesus Christ. That’s true Unity.

Let your Kingdom Come Father!

Who Will Ford and Cross Over into the Purpose of God? | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 7 –

Who Will Ford and Cross Over into the Purpose of God on 11-11-11?

It has been so hectic leading up to the Call, I haven’t been able to keep this blog updated on time. But trust me there has been SO MUCH to express during this Countdown!

Today’s Countdown is from Will Ford III. Not the one who owns Ford Field, but the Christian speaker and author. I did not know that there was so much meaning to the word “Ford.” Did you know that the word “ford” actually means to ‘cross over’ in the low place to the other side of a river. WOW.

The spiritual significance is amazing!

A House of Prayer for Every Ethnos | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 8 –

A House of Prayer for Every Ethnos

12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written , My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. Matthew 21

We pray that Jesus Christ would march into His Church again and make it into a House of Prayer for every nation… every ethnic group. We pray that He would cast out money changers and turn over tables. We also pray that the blind and the lame would come and be healed.

After we repent, the Church will not be the best example of racial division every Sunday. But to do that, we need to become a House of Prayer for every ethnic group. Racial division is a huge stronghold in the world. It should not be so in Jesus Christ. Soon we will be the world’s best example of unity!

When we cleanse the temple, get the thieves out, and rebuild the tabernacle of David, this will happen. Not only will the world see Unity, but the healing power of God will rise up again. When we become a House of Prayer, Jesus will come and miraculous healing will take place. The blind will see, and the lame will walk.

Jesus, Shock Your Church again! Do it on 11-11-11!
