Happy New Year

December 30, 2014

Well! It looks as if we all will make it through this last year and into the New Year however, as we get ready to enter 2015 let us enter it with Yahweh forever above, before and undergirding us! Whatever happened in 2014 is over and is now the past! All we have is the future before us and great and marvelous things which God, Abba our Heavenly Father has planned for us. In Jeremiah 29:11 Yahweh admonishes us and says: “11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. ”

So no matter what fears, worries or trials you are facing just turn them all over to Jesus! He will never let you down, leave you or forsake you. Cling to His promises with everything in you and whenever doubt or fear creeps in from the enemy speak back to the devil and say “Satan you’re a liar and the truth is not in you for my God has promised good for me and He will bring it to past in my life now and in my future, Hallelujah!

So from my family to yours, we wish you a very Blessed, Healthy, Prosperous and Happy New Year! Receive this Blessing in Jesus Name, Amen and Amen!

The Meaning of Prayer and Supplication Part 2

The Meaning of Prayer and Supplication

Part 2

The Word

What do we mean by supplication?

In Philippians 4:6-7, it says that when you pray this way, you will be able to come to a place of peace. The term that’s used there for peace means to guard as would a sentry.

Background: Throughout the Roman empire, there were cities in which there was a contingent of Roman soldiers. Philippi, to whom the letter was written, was such a Roman colony, a center of representative strength of the Roman government. It was to that people that the Apostle Paul uses a term they would more understand than many other communities would. When he uses the term “keep” or “guard” it is the same expression used of the soldiers who, like sentinels or sentries, would go marching about that city, preserving its boundaries, its defenses. It was the first place that would be attacked by an enemy that wanted to lay hold of that territory, but it was the last place that could be successfully overtaken because of the strength of its fortressing.

Philippians 4:6-7 says 1) we are not to worry but to 2) make our request known to God 3) with thanksgiving, and that 4) God’s peace will march about our request like a sentry.

The teaching of Scripture is that when we pray, we can be secure in that place of peace, like the citizens of Philippi who could look out at their city and see the soldiers guarding it. We don’t have to get up from praying and then spend the day wondering if God heard us or will answer our prayer. Supplication is the prayer that moves in the confidence of that peace.

The word supplication is directly related to the simple verb for “to bind” (Matthew 18:18). Wherever you encounter the term “supplication,” it is presenting to us that kind of prayer where we come to the Lord and move into the dimension of controlling by the power of God that which is uncontrollable by human power.

What can you do to stop the rising tide of evil?

You can do more than being indignant, condemning or vexed. According to the Word of God you can make supplication. That’s where you begin to enter in to the place of control, and binding.  Where we draw lines, as you are directed by the Holy Spirit.

We have the privilege to draw lines in prayer as we are directed by the Holy Spirit. “Ask what you will” doesn’t mean that God is obligated to answer prayers spoken without having entered into consultation with Him. The Holy Spirit will teach you how to pray. Where you don’t understand how, then you can pray in the Spirit, and He will make intercession with you, joining together with you in prayer so that effective imploring of God in behalf of the situation can be made.

Supplication is where I come into conference with God. Father, what is Your will in heaven that I may declare it on earth? It is where we are moving in partnership with the heavenly Father. His will for us is to learn how to move in response to what He has designed and is intending to do in any given situation.

The Lord wants those who will learn how to draw specific lines and begin to bind up (supplication) by the strength of the hand of God. There’s a pattern to binding, knots to be tied properly, if it’s to hold. “Binding” and “loosing” not spiritual guesswork; there’s a methodical approach to prayer when you come to binding. It’s not in the multitude of words, but the Lord will show you how to pray.

Binding and Loosing

Those who learn to pray with supplication are not people that have earned something from God, but they learned something of God. God has not taught us to pray prayers of destruction, but to bind up the works of darkness. It’s not our responsibility to tell God how to go about it, but it is our responsibility to take a posture of prayer against those things that are alien to His purpose for mankind, and to bind up their operation.

We are to pray for God’s righteousness to be revealed. God doesn’t give us the right to make judgment on any situation in binding it up otherwise it can wind up being no more than Pentecostal witchcraft. God wants us to enter into consultation with Him and while you’re functioning on the earth side of things, He’s guiding things sovereignly on the heaven side. You find out what He has in mind, what He’s already got bound there, and as He shows you His mind, then you bind those things on earth. Though He’s got them bound in heaven, until you take things over on earth, nothing will happen.

Prayer and the Word go together

Supplication is where we enter into the presence of God. Let Him talk to you from the Word and find out the grounds for your authority or what His mind is about how to deal with things.

Prayer is not just one side of devotional life and reading the Bible the other. Both enter into the same flow. We need to come into His presence, and let Him teach us, speak to us and direct us. Then we begin to learn where we can function and see what we’re supposed to do.

When someone asks you to pray, take a moment to ask the Lord how He would have you to pray over the situation. Ask Him to bring the Word to your mind with regard to it, and ask Him to show you how to pray. Then begin to pray in the Spirit. While you’re praying in the Spirit, you’ll find that, very likely, the Holy Spirit will bring to your mind exactly what you’re praying.

Praying as the Lord shows you how is revelation praying. You stymie the flow of evil, cut off the works of darkness, see health begin to be loosed, and the power of God manifest. With all kinds of prayer, spiritual battle is being done and supplication is going forth. When you have prayed that way, you know that you have entered into the counsels of eternity and loosed in time or bound in time what is the Father’s will for that situation, and when you’ve done that, Scripture says that peace comes to your heart.
