Some examples of the prophetic finish:“Psalmist” are well known for their utterances bring forth words in a phrase of utterance and end with many words which may rhyme. They start and they finish the spiritual phrase and it makes total sense and is verified by Scripture.“Prophetic” musicians will be directed by the Spirit to musically start a phrase and complete it, while it may even sound like a conversation being spoken through them by the Lord. And it is.

Most people know that music is a language of phrasing, questions and answers, throughout musical compositions, but in prophetic worship it is more answers than questions being spoken through the music. This means that there are direct proclamations and declarations in prophetic worship that sets the captives free.

This is why it is crucial for prophetic proclamations to have a begin and a end in what is being said. The end part or conclusion is the wrap up, the main point and it is the most powerful statement about the whole entire utterance! So is the conclusion of prophetic worship stream in worship, dispensing shackle breaking power,deliverance, healing & freedom!

Afterwards in the completion of it, the prophetic worship stream doesn’t stay continuously. Yet in the banks of the river of His Spirit, which is contained in our worship, there still contains the potential flow and this can linger should it be needed to happen again and again, even as at the appointed times of refreshing from the Spirit of the Lord.(Acts 3:19)

When the prophetic worship happens one can prepare oneself to be ushered into the Spirit of Holiness where those who are there will be quicken to know that the Lord is among His people.“And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.”(1Cor. 14:25)

Needless to say not everyone is prepared for the spontaneous utterance of prophetic worship and what it can bring, but it is always a holy place where you know that He is there.

No flesh can boast in this type of presence, and it is not what we have among us in the church as we should, but it should be that is for sure, and when He comes among us in this level we can but cry out only,“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty!” Please prepare your hearts today because this is the level where are going to in the church.

I think one of the most power areas of prophetic worship is the proclamation utterance which comes to release the captives. This may be done by combined singing and worship playing together or just instrumental with the announcement of what the Lord is saying through the moment of prophetic worship.

The gathering can be called upon to shout in reception of this proclamation. The result is a profound delivering plow to any yoke that is not of the Lord.“And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.”(Isa. 10:27)

Another area to note is in the area of intercession. During prophetic worship there can come an anointing of powerful intercession which unities the gatherers to press in prayer together.

It sounds like a rising and crashing wave of the sea through them. The intensity of the prayers rise up from a united pressing to a spiting edge brings breakthrough to them who are there corporately. Again prophetic worship carries this anointing and helps to bring down these strongholds.

So there is an anointing that comes on the worship musicians to play with more intensity in the rising and crashing periods of His Spirit.

In prophetic worship itself the anointing brings forth spontaneous new songs of utterance. There is nothing before hand which regulates this happening. The Bible does say that we are to judge what is being said to make sure it lines up with God’s word.

It is here that the mature saints in the congregation can judge these utterances to see if they are of God, else they must respond to correct them before the gathering so that the errors may not be digested and spread into the congregation.

However, when these utterances are true ones it is powerful and speaks to the hearts of the hearers there. Sometimes Pastors do not like the prophetic and prophetic worship, many times they despise when this happens, and especially correcting what was uttered out of alignment with Scriptures, but it is their job to correct and mentor so that their people can grow spiritually.

“Despise not prophesying.”(1 Thess. 5:20) And this would include prophetic worship and spontaneous songs of His Spirit!

The Purpose & Power of Music

Author Rev. Norman Holmes in Spiritual Understanding

Why God Created Music. When God created all things, He also created music. One evidence of this is that the Lord created the first musical instruments.

People can sing, whistle, and clap because God has placed the proper musical equipment inside us!

The birds and animals also make music because of the musical instruments and abilities that God has given them. Around the world, in the skies, and even throughout the seas, living creatures are filling our planet with music.

God created music for it to be a medium or channel of communication. Not only people, but also the birds and animals communicate many messages through music, such as courtship, danger, aggression, and even sympathy.

For example, I can remember one evening when a car ran over a dog in our neighborhood. As this dog let out his last dying yelps, all the dogs in the community began an unusually mournful howling.

In essence, they were singing a funeral dirge! Music is commonly used by all kinds of living creatures to communicate with each other—it is only humans that also use words.

A musician combines sounds to bring a message through a song just as an artist combines colors to communicate a message through a picture.

However, music is a more popular and more powerful medium than art. The great 19th century conqueror of Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte, recognized this when he said,“Of all the arts, music has the greatest influence over the emotions and is the art to which leaders should give great attention.”

Moreover, music has an appeal that goes much beyond our emotions because relates to our entire human nature. For just as 1 Thessalonians 5:23 suggests that humanity was created with a triune nature, we can also see how music can communicate to each part of the entire person in his or her spirit, soul, and body

Music is a Spiritual Channel

David playing his harp to King Saul.
Godly music can stir up and release the moving of the Holy Spirit from our heart, or spirit. We can read in 1 Samuel 16:23 that when David played his harp, it released such an anointing that the evil spirit oppressing King Saul was driven away.

Music can also help to release gifts of the Spirit, such as prophecy. It is a special blessing to the musicians and singers in a church service whenthe moving of the Holy Spirit is released through their music to minister in such ways as to bring healings, prophecy, deliverance, or the conviction of sin.
One special time when I saw a powerful release of the Holy Spirit happened when I was a musician in a choir. As we sang about heaven at the funeral of a godly man, a wonderful anointing came upon us. Waves of the Holy Spirit seemed to flow through us as we played and sang, and a number of the singers saw the glory of God filling the room. The mighty presence of God brought such conviction that some unbelievers who had come to attend the funeral jumped up at that moment, put their fingers in their ears, and ran out of the service as if they were in agony! However, many who remained had their lives changed by the power of the Holy Spirit that day.

On another occasion, I was conducting a pastors’ seminar in Baguio, a popular tourist city in the Cordillera Mountains in the Philippines. During the seminar we had some unusual spiritual breakthroughs into high worship. I told the pastors that we would see visible results from these times of worship.

A few days later the vice-president of our ministry led a man to Christ who was the owner of the largest group of prostitution houses in Baguio. He immediately closed them down and had some of the pastors who attended our seminar burn his many idols. Then he put up signs outside of the former prostitution houses that read:“This house is closed—Jesus is Lord.” I believe that it was through the power of worship that this victory was first gained in the heavenlies, although through evangelism it was then accomplished upon the earth.
God made music to be a channel of the Holy Spirit, but it can also be used by Satan. Heathen religions use music to call evil spirits. Their music can help prepare a person to become demon possessed, and sometimes work miracles or prophesy by an evil spirit. As an example, a pastor from Uganda told me how his father had been a famous witch doctor before he was led to Christ. He would start his religious gatherings with singing and chanting until the demonic spirits would come upon him. Then he would demonstrate supernatural powers such as walking on fire without being harmed.
While these are valuable spiritual lessons for us to learn about the power of music, we also need to further understand that the battles between the forces of light and darkness often take place through music. Most Christians know that evangelistic teams regularly use music to invade the devil’s territory and rescue souls for Christ. However, what fewer believers understand is that the enemy sometimes uses music to bring spiritual attacks into the churches!
I saw an example of this one night when a young pastor returned to visit his former Bible school. At the evening meeting he sang a special song that kept repeating the words,“I love you.” However, this young man was not singing his repeated “I love you” words to the Lord, but to the various pretty young ladies in the congregation! His singing was not a channel of the Holy Spirit, but a channel of a spirit of lust as he was seeking a “warm” response from any of the women that he was singing to. The reality of this spiritual discernment was confirmed a few weeks later when we discovered that this pastor was involved in an immoral relationship back in his church.
There was another time a spiritual attack was taking place through the music ministry team of a church. While visiting the church my spirit was troubled by the performance this team was putting on during the song service. Pride, lust, rebellion, and self-centeredness all seemed to be exhibited throughout their stage performance. Afterwards, while ignoring the preaching, they all went to the back of the church where they continued to talk loudly, laugh, and disturb the congregation. The spiritual mixture they released both during the song service and afterwards made it difficult for the congregation to receive any spiritual blessing from the church service.
I talked with the pastors after the service, who then unloaded their grief to me. They said that the musicians and singers were rebellious, proud, and disobeyed their dating standards to the point of probable immorality. The pastors said that the group was a negative influence to the church members. In return I shared with them my concerns that the spiritual mixture in their lives was releasing demonic attacks upon the church services through their performances.

Some people might wonder whether evil spirits could come into a church service. However, we can understand this better by considering the first chapter of Job. There we can read about a time when Satan came, along with the rest of the angels, to present himself before the Lord in heaven. If the Devil can stand before the throne of God among the congregation of heaven, then it would not be surprising for his demons to also at times stand among the congregations on earth!
This truth can also be seen in Genesis 15:11. We read from there,“And when the vultures came down on the carcasses [of the sacrifices], Abram drove them away.” The vultures represented evil spirits, even as our Lord spoke about the birds as being a type of the Devil in Mark 4:15. Abraham had to drive away the vultures that tried to eat the sacrifice before the Lord came down and accepted the offerings. In a similar manner, there are times when we need to drive away the evil spirits that are trying to defile our sacrifices of praise and worship.
A good worship service will often be used of God to attack the powers of darkness, but there are times when we may face an enemy counterattack. During this type of worship service we must drive away these spiritual counterattacks, just as Abraham drove away the predator birds that were seeking to devour his offerings to God. It is only then that the Lord will come down to both accept our worship and to bless us.
Because music can be a powerful spiritual channel—for both good and bad—we need discernment in the house of God. We need to be able to guard our church services from enemy infiltration, as well as enter into godly music and worship. This will release the moving of the Holy Spirit to both glorify God and bring victory to God’s people!
Music Influences the Soul
Martin Luther 1483 – 1546
Music is commonly used to communicate to the soul. Different types of music can influence your emotions to make you feel happy, sad, confused, or peaceful. The great German reformer, Martin Luther, wrote,“Whether you wish to comfort the sad, to terrify the happy, to encourage the despairing, to humble the proud, to calm the passionate, or to pacify those full of hate….what more effective means than music could you find?”

Our Lord Himself spoke about this in Luke 7:32. He said that those who were trying to influence John the Baptist and Himself were like the children who complained,“We played the flute for you, and you did not dance. We mourned to you, and you did not weep.” Music is used to influence people! An advertisement will repeatedly play a catchy tune to get you to buy their product, while a patriotic song can help a soldier to feel proud to march out and fight for his country. Also, consider this: how often have you been at a good party that had no music? Good music is an important part of any festive occasion!
Some companies have conducted tests to determine how music can influence customers in a store. They have found that playing slower, peaceful music will encourage the shoppers to stay in the store longer and buy more. As a result they will play this type of music during the daytime until about 4:00 P.M. to help keep the shoppers in their store. But after about 4:00 P.M. as people start to leave their places of employment, and the stores begin to fill up with many people. Then the stores will change their music to fast, lively songs that encourage the people to buy what they came for and quickly leave- so that there is room for the other shoppers who are crowding in!
Music can influence not only individual persons, but also groups of people and even nations. Otto Von Bismarck, the famous 19th century unifier and leader of Germany, declared that music was one of the most important agents for bringing about the unification of his country. He said,“It was not the size of our army but its spirit that enabled us to conquer. For this reason I hope no one in the future will undervalue the power of music in arousing courage and devotion.” The Greek philosopher Plato wrote,“When the music of a nation changes, the nation changes.” Confucius said,“Do you want to know if a land is well governed, and its people have good morals? Listen to its music.” In line with this observation we can examine the musical trends in Western society during the last fifty years. Where music has slipped into increased immorality, cursing, and violence, we can see similar trends in its society.

Music Influences the Body
Music also communicates to the body. Changes in the volume, pitch, speed, and beat of music have been medically reported to have an effect on the human body in many areas including the heartbeat rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, gland secretions, and speed of breathing.
For example, let us consider one effect that very loud music has on the human body. Everyone has two small glands located above their kidneys that produce a natural drug called adrenaline. This natural drug is a stimulant released during times of stress or physical emergency to make a person temporarily very strong and alert. In effect, the person becomes “high” from the release of this natural stimulant. One circumstance that makes the human body feel that it is under stress or attack is when very loud music (such as at a rock music concert or a disco hall) is blasting loudly. The human body will prepare to defend itself by releasing adrenaline into the bloodstream. People can then feel “high,” not from an illegal drug, but from their own bodies releasing adrenaline to prepare them for self-defense against the attack of the loud music that is beating upon them!
Another way that music can be used to control the body is if a song with a strong beat is played faster and faster. This can cause the pulse rate to speed up with the increasing beat of the music and produce high blood pressure. This technique is often used by cheerleaders and rock musicians to increase the excitement of the occasion. Conversely, peaceful music can relax muscle tension. Dozens of medical studies have investigated this and have found that up to 98% of the people who suffer from anxiety and muscle tension can be helped by listening to gentle, peaceful music. For this reason many dentists have peaceful, soothing music playing in their reception room to relax the nervous patients who are waiting for treatment. It is much easier for dentists to work if their patients are not nervously tightening their mouth and jaw muscles in fear of the pain that may come.
The Healing Power of Music
Healing power of music.
The powerful effect that music can have upon people is so universally recognized that many hospitals, therapists, and psychiatrists throughout the world are using music to help treat their patients. National associations of music therapists have been organized in the United States, Britain, Canada, and many other nations.

Universities around the world have been offering degrees in music therapy for over 60 years, and there are thousands of registered music therapy professionals. The Journal of Music Therapy and other publications record the research of these health professionals, while insurance programs such as Medicaid and Blue Cross accept music therapy as a medical treatment. Music is being used to help the emotional, physical, and spiritual problems of man in many areas including insanity, alcoholism, autism, nervous tension, hyperactivity, and depression.
The Corruption of Music
God created music to be a powerful channel of communication. The world recognizes the power of music and spends great amounts of money to provide music for advertising, entertainment, and other forms of influencing people. However, Satan also knows the power of music! Before man was created, angels were created with the ministry of music.
One great leader of the angels who is specifically mentioned in the Bible as being created with musical ability is Lucifer, whose name means Light Bearer. Ezekiel 28:13 says about Lucifer that “the workmanship of thy tabrets [tambourines] and of thy pipes [flutes] was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created”(KJV). Just as a person is created with musical instruments (such as vocal cords), in a similar manner the angel Lucifer was able to make music. While we can only imagine what types of tamborines and flutes were created within his body, they quite probably did not seem unusual at all. After all, consider what people are born with: stringed instuments (vocal chords), percussion instruments (hands to clap and feet to tap), as well as a wind instrument (a mouth and lips to whistle). Each of these musical instruments in our bodies seem very natural as well as useful.

The garments that God designed to cover Lucifer would suggest that he functioned as a high priest among the angels.7 This indicates that he was a great worship leader also. A confirmation of this is shown by his title “the Anointed Cherub who Covers [the throne of God]” in Ezekiel 28:14. When we study Revelation chapters four and five about the heavenly beings who cover the throne of God, we find that they are worship leaders. Lucifer was perhaps the greatest musician and worship leader among the angels, leading the worship of heaven. When he lifted himself up in pride against God and led many of the angels to rebel, some of the talents that he surely used to help lead the rebellion were his musical and worship leading abilities!
We can think of what it might have been like in heaven before the rebellion. Lucifer, the anointed cherub, would play his music and lead the angelic hosts in worship to God. What an anointing must have filled the temple of heaven! As revelation flowed, Lucifer the Light Bearer would have taught them new songs that led them higher and higher into the glory of God.
Yet when Lucifer began to lift himself up in pride, the scriptures tell us that he began to keep some of the glory for himself. He probably began to lead songs of worship that were increasingly filled with his self-exaltation. Many of the angels were probably thrilled by these bold new songs of beauty and pride, although the faithful angels would not join in. As the rebellion blossomed into maturity, Lucifer’s hosts may have marched to boastful songs, just as the armies of the world now march to war with their songs encouraging them on!
Even today, many church splits are caused by worship leaders and musicians. Some have proudly told their pastoral leadership,“We are the ones who know how to lead the singing and worship. You pastors aren’t even musical! You do the preaching, but we will control the praise and worship. And if you try to hinder us or control us, we will take our music equipment and our followers, and start our own church!”

Worship leaders and musicians often help lead church splits because they are skilled in leading and influencing the members of the church—whether for good, or for evil.
When Lucifer fell, he kept his musical talents but they became corrupted in nature. Isaiah prophesied of this when he declared about Lucifer in chapter 14:13 that “your pomp is brought down to Sheol, and the sound of your stringed instruments.” As Satan is still seeking to corrupt the world today, he is using music to help lead mankind towards the world, the flesh and the devil. Satan knows the power of music and worship. In his wilderness temptations of Christ he was willing to offer the kingdoms of the world to Jesus, if He would only fall down and worship him. Satan knows that if he can control the worship, then he can control everything!
Our Need for Spiritual Discernment
It is very important for us to understand that while God made music to be good, it can be corrupted by Satan and his followers—and even by unsuspecting Christians—and used for evil. I recently read this statement in a Christian book:“God made everything good, including music, so how can any music be called evil?” This logic is as faulty as saying:“God made all the angels good, so how can any of the angels be called evil?” We need to discern how the fallen angels and corrupted mankind are using their music for evil. The spiritual war between the armies of God and Satan is not fought with natural weapons, rather, it is often fought with musical instruments. Just as a wise army commander must understand the battles that he fights, we must learn to discern the spiritual battles that take place in the music and worship around us.
People can be talented and popular musicians or singers, but when they are born again as spiritual babies in Christ they must begin to learn how to minister by the Spirit with their music. Natural talent (without the anointing of the Holy Spirit) can only entertain, even though Christians may like it and people may fill a church to hear good entertainment. Churches should be very careful about quickly giving a music ministry to a new convert, even if he is very musically talented. This is as spiritually dangerous as giving the pulpit to a newly saved politician or actor and letting him preach all the time, just because he is a talented speaker. Ministry is not primarily a result of talents and abilities, or by might and power: it is accomplished by the Spirit of God moving through a consecrated vessel.
When we are saved, we need to develop spiritual discernment and have our minds renewed. This will cause us to understand and discern the spiritual forces that are seeking to move through the music around us—the battle between God and Satan. Then we can prepare to have a life and ministry of godly, anointed music that will help bring revival to God’s people and bring glory to God!

Dance Dresses

Why are special dance dresses needed?

1. The dresses have a function.

2. The dress respects God and expresses His characteristics.

God gives visions from heaven about different dresses.

The heaven is full of dresses which can be released on earth.

A personal and a standard dance dress
A dance dress can be a personal one or it can be just a standard dress. A personal dance dress only belongs to the person to whom it has been made and to whom it belongs.

A price has been paid for a personal dress. The dress itself carries an anointing, which you cannot carry without having paid a price for it. The dancer has been purified and sharpened to be a vessel for noble purposes.

Dresses carry anointing
Each dance dress carries its own anointing and releases it in the spiritual realm. The dresses are not just any clothes that can be worn at any time. A dance dress is a holy costume and a means to serve God.

The high priest Aron and his helpers had special holy clothes which had been designed in heaven.

Their costumes carried an anointing and they had been set apart for God. No one else could wear them, only the person they belonged to. Also a dancer carries out a holy priestly service before God in the Holy spirit. The dancer has special holy clothes at her disposal. They have been set apart to serve God, and this is what makes them holy.

A dance dress proclaims various things depending on what its function is and what color it is. The colors are a very central element of the dress. One might say they are the most central element. The color defines what the dress represents and proclaims and what its function is in the spirit. In dance we operate through colors in a powerful way. Prophetic dance is impossible without colors and their message.

The dance dress cuts through in the spiritual realm. It fulfills a purpose and a function for which it has been created. God always has a purpose and a function for the dresses. The colors, the materials and the designs create a whole which makes the dress. The dress cannot be made only according to one’s own personal likes.

The color or the design of the dress cannot be chosen on the basis of what you like yourself, but it has to be made according to a heavenly vision. There are dance clothes that are just dance clothes without any special content. But now I am talking about dance dresses that carry a godly authority and a mandate, as well as the presence of God.

Such a dress makes a change in the atmosphere and pulls down strongholds of darkness. Such a dress makes a mark in the spiritual realm. A person who is not purified cannot carry such a dress, because her life is not in accordance with God’s standard.

So the requirement of purity is applied even here.

A dance dress is born for a specific purpose, never by chance. God has a plan for which He releases a certain dress on earth. It has a purpose. It emerges exactly at the right time, and carries out in the spirit the task that has been appointed to it.

There may be many fine dresses, but only those that were born of heaven respect God in a way no other clothes could never do. God’s hand is upon the dress as it was born according to a vision given by the Holy Spirit. It is not just any nice dress to take some dance steps in.

“There¬fore, since we are receiv¬ing a king¬dom that can¬not be shaken, let us be thank¬ful, and so wor¬ship God accept¬ably with rev¬er¬ence and awe, for our ‘God is a con¬sum¬ing fire.’”(Hebrews 12:28–29)

I was in a cor¬po¬rate wor¬ship ser¬vice, and the praise was very intense. The Holy Spirit began to strongly move us to glo¬rify and exalt God.

We began exalt¬ing him higher and higher until we were singing our very high¬est praises unto him with all our strength,“…in his tem¬ple, all cry,‘Glory!’”(Psalm 29:9).

At this apex of exal¬ta¬tion, all of a sud¬den my spirit sensed the awe¬some, mag¬nif¬i¬cent, HOLY pres¬ence of God descend¬ing upon us.

It was the ful¬fill¬ment of the Scrip¬ture,“But thou art holy, O thou that inhab¬itest the praises of Israel”(Psalm 22:3 KJV).

With the eyes of my spirit, it seemed like the Holy Spirit was descend¬ing upon us in his mag¬nif¬i¬cent power.

He brought fire with him, and this fire seemed to cut through the dark spir¬i¬tual fir¬ma¬ment above us.

The fire was holi¬ness, the burn¬ing white-hot holi¬ness of God. The fire was ‘liv¬ing’, and it was glo¬ri¬ous light and exceed¬ing power.

My spirit sensed that within the awe¬some holy fire was the glo¬ri¬ous pres¬ence of God, who was now burst¬ing forth upon us in the purest, most mag¬nif¬i¬cent light.(See Acts 2).

This was my expe¬ri¬ence, and the other wor¬shipers must have sensed it too because, like one body, we alto-gether began rejoic¬ing in his won¬der¬ful pres¬ence at the same time, for he was actu¬ally man¬i¬fest with us.

This is also the expe¬ri¬ence that inspired the draw¬ing,“There is Joy in the Pres¬ence of Jesus”(Praise and Wor-ship Series).

Peo¬ple began danc¬ing their praise and wor¬ship of him. It was such a won¬der¬ful time of rejoic¬ing in the pres-ence of the Lord!

How¬ever, after a lit¬tle while it seemed to me that one per¬son in par¬tic¬u¬lar started to dance in efforts to draw atten¬tion to him¬self. He even¬tu¬ally suc¬ceeded. He also seemed to dis¬tract oth¬ers from wor¬ship by try¬ing to get them to join him.

This per¬son even¬tu¬ally made his way to cen¬ter stage, and in so doing, the wor¬shipers’ atten¬tion was drawn off of God and placed onto this per¬son, who was a very good dancer show¬ing off some dif¬fi¬cult moves.

I was in one of the last rows and saw this whole thing unfold, all the while pray¬ing,“No, no, no,” inside.

As the wor¬shipers’ atten¬tion was drawn off of God onto the promi¬nent dancer, I could sense with the eyes of my spirit, that the fiery pres¬ence of God had begun to dis¬ap¬pear.

Very soon, it was com¬pletely gone. My spirit could no longer sense his holy pres¬ence man¬i¬festly with us as it had been just moments ago.

Sadly, I had the impres¬sion that even though God had desired to stay with us, inhab¬it¬ing our praises, he could not, for we, as a cor¬po¬rate assem¬bly, had stopped prais¬ing God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23–24).

I was very grieved, for I believe we had grieved the Spirit of God even though the Word expressly says,“…do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God…”(Eph¬esians 4:30) and “Do not put out the Spirit’s fire…”(1 Thes¬sa¬lo¬ni¬ans 5:19).

Fur¬ther¬more, I had been bask¬ing in God’s won¬der¬ful pres¬ence and absolutely ached to linger in it; instead, I was robbed of it.

I believe we cor¬po¬rately allowed this to hap¬pen by los¬ing our focus on God and plac¬ing it on man. Instead of con¬tin¬u¬ing to mar¬vel at God, we began to mar¬vel at man.

As a group of wor-shipers I believe we had crossed over that sub¬tle line from spir¬i¬tual wor¬ship into soul¬ish ‘wor¬ship’, and because of this I believe we had extin¬guished the Spirit’s fire amongst us.

Though we’d been flow¬ing in prophetic wor¬ship up until this point, it seemed it had now been dis¬rupted, and it was hard to get back on track after this. I believe we needed to repent in order to be fully restored back into that flow of prophetic wor¬ship and back into the fiery pres¬ence of God again.(See “Praise and Wor¬ship Series: Prophetic Worship”).

This was a big les¬son for me as a wor¬ship leader to never attract atten¬tion to myself through singing or play-ing, and to repent imme¬di¬ately if I do.

After expe¬ri¬enc¬ing the dev¬as¬tat¬ing effects of the flesh on spir¬i¬tual wor-ship, I never, ever want to grieve God through my pride and pur¬suit of my own glory, for I know that the fleshly desire for atten¬tion and the praise of men must be put to death in each one of us. How much greater and valu¬able is the glory of God than the glory and praise of men!
How exceed¬ingly won¬der¬ful is the glo¬ri¬ous pres¬ence of God!!!

There¬fore, let us,“…wor¬ship God accept¬ably with rev¬er¬ence and awe, for our ‘God is a con¬sum¬ing fire’”(Hebrews 12:28–29), and let us,“Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trem¬bling”(Psalm 2:11).

Amaz¬ingly, it wasn’t until I began to paint this image that I was reminded of the famous Scrip¬ture in Exo¬dus 13:21 where God’s pres¬ence dwells within a pil¬lar of fire amongst the Israelites.

This is exactly what my spirit sensed, yet I never rec¬og¬nized the bla¬tantly obvi¬ous until I began this paint¬ing. It was really great for me to have such a pre¬cise con¬fir¬ma¬tion of the Word of God upon this spir¬i¬tual expe¬ri¬ence.(The Bible must test every spir¬i¬tual expe¬ri¬ence we have– 1 Thes¬sa¬lo¬ni¬ans 5:21).

the Financial Miracle Ministry of the Prophet

…..Sow a Seed Into Financial Miracle Soil Reap a Harvest of Financial Miracles!!!!!!!!!!
Prophets and Prosperity

2 Chron. 20:20 - Believe the Prophets and so shall ye Prosper...

Prophets and Prosperity - Here I detail some interesting stories of how God was using Prophets to bring about monetary miracles or financial miracles.
Prophets and Prosperity

One thing I want you to realize is that Prophets were used mightily of God in the Miracle Ministry
As I began to study I developed more and more faith for what the Prophets used to do in their miracle ministry. Until then I thought Prophets just prophesy but this study opened up a whole new realm and dimension to me and gave me great faith in the Miracle Ministry of the Prophet.

Naturally I began to teach these things ( proclamation ) and believe God for (demonstration) these same financial miracles to take place ( manifestation ) in my meetings which I write about in the financial miracles section to the left.

What I did not go into depth about was these things were being done by me, a Prophet moving in Financial Miracles based on what I saw in the Bible.

Here I will list some the Monetary and Miracles of Provision from the Prophets. Then I will share a few stories of manifestations in my own meetings and ministry.

Prophets and Prosperity
My Ministry
Earlier I had touched on how a church I was preaching in found a solid gold dime in the offering and I gave it to them to pay off their mortgage.
I once was invited to a conference and the Lord gave me a word that they would count the offering and it would continue to increase every time. this was my first time interacting with this network so this word better happen. The Minister in charge stopped the meeting and had the men count it and sure enough this happened every time they counted it.
Since then I began to pray over my offerings and the same miracle happened often. Sometimes I needed it to happen just to get back home.
I will talk about this in another section called signs and wonders but while I was in a 10 week nightly revival I began to notice people worshiping with one eye on the ground. After the meeting I saw these same people crawling on their hands and knees. As I moved closer and inspected it I saw they were picking up 1/4 carat diamonds from the carpet. WE had a jeweler examine them and they were perfect cut and clarity. I brought 6 of these with me to the TV show It's Supernatural with Sid Roth.
I have had hundreds of financial miracles happen in my ministry Next Move of God revival Ministries. This was as regular an occurrence as the healing miracles.
I asked the Lord about it one day and He said it's because the family that adopted you stole your Father's inheritance and now I am your Father and this is my inheritance for you. People all over the world will know you that when they sow into this miracle anointing they will receive miracles in the same way in their life. I have to say the Father's inheritance which I believe is the BLESSING OF THE LORD in my life is awesome.
Personally I live minute by minute day by day hour by hour just trusting Him for the step that I am on and enough light and provision for the next step. But I know that we have a mandate to advance the Kingdom and to bring good news to the poor.
watchmen discernible

The most discernible difference in a person who is a watchman and one who moves in the spiritual gifts is that those operating in the gifts usually can and do move frequently in their gifts, words of knowledge, words of wisdom etc.

Where as a watchman may receive revelation of tremendous value and in large quantity but may do so only once or twice in a year. These are truly watchmen on the wall. Not better than, nor less than other prophetic callings, just distinct in their difference.

The real everyday life of a watchman on the wall in ancient times was not all that glamorous. They spent days on end without seeing anything of significance maybe even weeks or months might go by before they spotted any thing to report.

But a good watchman was always on the lookout, never tiring or moving his steady gaze from the horizon just in case something or someone came into view.
It is still the same today.

A spiritual watchman is always watching and listening in the spiritual realm. He may hear the word of the Lord or receive revelation or foresight into coming events that is very important. When this happens he must report this to the proper authorities. Then his job is done. Like his ancient predecessors, he doesn’t have the authority to call out the army or close the gates he simply reports what he sees to the elders or leaders. Then it becomes their responsibility to take the proper action.

After he has done this he may go for many days, weeks or months before he sees anything to report again. During this time many will persistently ask “Has the Lord shown you anything?” or ” What’s God showing you now?”

A mature watchman who has no present revelation will say “Nothing at this time” Those less mature may try to search out something and report erroneously. This can cause trouble in the camp.
The point is that with a watchman the revelation comes at the proper time and as God wills.

If the watchman has other gifts such as gift of knowledge, he may be able to find a word from the Lord for an individual or group but he cannot use his watchman’s anointing for this because he can only report what is approaching on the horizon.

A prophet though, may often give a prophetic watchman’s report and then move into the gifts of the spirit with out anyone realizing he has left one anointing and passed to another.

The watchman’s revelation and subsequent report is vital to everyone. But revelations usually come to watchmen mush less frequently than it does to other revelatory people.

If you receive infrequent yet pertinent revelation chances are you are moving in a watchman’s anointing. If you don’t receive any other word for a while don’t despair. God has not forgotten you. There simply is not anything of significance moving on the horizon in your section of the watch area.

God is faithful and will give revelation and direction in the proper order and at the proper time.

If you don’t receive this kind of revelation, don’t worry, just move in the gifts that you have but understand that you may not be a watchman. Not everyone is.

Not every one is called to be a watchman, only those God so desires. What’s important is for all Christians to seek a more intimate relationship with our Creator and use the revelation He gives as our own gifting and calling allows.

Whether or not the world is saved will determine on whether or not it heeds the warning of THE WATCHMAN.

prophets gives warning

God’s designation of the prophet as a watchman is perfect. It focuses on the importance of a solitary figure on the entire kingdom of God. It highlights the exceptional commitment that must be made by the prophet and it explains the close relationship that a prophet has with God.

The actions of the prophet affect the lives of all the people. In the book of Jonah, we see that it is only the prophet that stands between the complete destruction of a people or their survival.

Had God not forced Jonah to return to Nineveh, all the people of Nineveh would have died, and all of their blood would have been on Jonah’s head. When Pashur the prophet (Jeremiah 20)refused to bring the word of God to the people, he in effect robbed them of the guidance and warning from God. The punishment for refusing was that he went into captivity with all the people and he died in captivity.

God has placed prophets in the midst of His people to sound a warning. The words of the prophets are often unpopular or critical, but they are necessary for the people to remain righteous in the sight of God. Prophets are laughed at, scorned, persecuted, and even killed by the very people they are trying to save. Prophets receive no respect, compensation, or honor from their own people. Some prophets are seduced by money, fame, position or lusts, such as Koriah and Balaam.

They received from God the reward for their folly. Therefore, the prophets make an extra effort to remain true to God. Today there are very many doctrines and practices that have strayed from the path that God has set for His people. Holidays such as Easter, Halloween, and Christmas are celebrations that are offensive to God, but men have made them a part of their tradition.

For the prophets who sound the warnings to the church to abandon these practices, there is only rejection and persecution. It is today as it has always been, so is the life of the prophet. The suffering of the prophet will be rewarded greatly in heaven. As long as there are obedient prophets, the world will always have the word of truth

He can see ahead of the everyday person. The position of the watchman allows him to see much farther than the people on the ground.

From the spiritual perspective this means that the prophets commitment to God allows him to have insight into things and events that are not available to people.

Because the prophet is the messenger of God to his, the prophet has access to visions of the future, the present, and the past. It is this foresight that guides the people in the way that God would have them to go. The Holy Spirit reveals those things that the prophet need in order to warn the people of danger.
