"Lord, I feel in my spirit right now that You want to release something that just automatically spills out to the people around us in our workplaces ... you are calling us to break out of our 4 walls to reach this nation Lord, the nation of Australia. I feel in my spirit that God is saying “keep your eye on Brisbane because God is about to do something in this city, all the way up to the Gold Coast ... I feel that there is something coming to this specific area that is going to affect the whole nation of Australia. And I feel that the prayers that have been sown deep into the ground over the years with The Call, with Rim of Fire, with different organisations in groups, in ministries, in churches, in prayer meetings, the Lord says You are about to reap what you have sown. The seeds of revival are about to spring up, I declare.
The Lord said to tell you the “I am doing a new thing”. I feel that the Lord is calling this church to go from glory to glory but also to go from glory gathering to glory gathering. I don't know if that means protracted meetings, I don't know if that means more conferences, I don't know if that means other church plants from this house or all of the above, but I feel that there is an explosion, an exponential growth pending on this house. And the Lord has seen your hunger, and He has seen the cries of your heart and He's about to unleash something so unprecedented, so unique to the nation of Australia through you. So Lord, we just thank you for that word. Lord if it is protracted meetings, I pray you would give this house the grace, the strength to go and to tarry. Lord we know this life is not a sprint, it's a marathon, so I pray for the Spirit of endurance in the name of Jesus. I pray you would speak to the leadership of this house that you would grant them wisdom and revelation. Wisdom and revelation, whatever that means. But this place is too small, I tell you that right now. As I walked in, I saw this partition and I know that you share this building with another church, but I felt like the Lord says, I’m about to expand this church, to the left and to the right."
I felt the Lord saying, Glory Gathering is in a birthing season. The reason why I say that is because you are about to birth something as a church, so unprecedented, so unique, so special, so significant. It's something that we obviously honour and we love what God is doing around the nations, but I feel like what God is saying is there's something new that's coming out of this house that has never been done before. There's something supernatural, there's something so special that God is birthing through this house.
He's going to release the spirit and anointing for new converts. I really feel that this time next year, this place is going to be double the size. I say this in faith that by the time next year comes around it's almost going to be double the size. A lot of the people that are going to be in this house are going to be family and friends that you have been reaching out to and contending for, I really feel it. So, new converts; the harvest is ripe. I feel that the city of Brisbane is ripe, it is awaiting with anticipation for the Kingdom of God."
God is going to bring new converts. There is going to be an influx of re-dedications and reconfirmations. The prodigals are coming home; the prodigals are coming home; the prodigals are coming home, in the name of Jesus! Along with new converts there are going to be a new discipleship – I don’t know if it is going to be a discipleship for training, don’t know if there is going to be a new anointing for discipleshipbut there are going to be disciples raised up in this house.
I really feel that one of the ways that God is going to bring growth to this house is through discipleship. Because the Lord is very clear, "therefore go into all the world and make (not coverts) but disciples of all nations.” So the key for discipleship; Jesus had His 12; I even prophesy to the leaders of this house that you're going to have your disciples and you're going to have people that are going to "carry your bags,” so to speak and are going to learn to serve and learn character. He is going to be bringing in and is raising up leaders and disciples of this house, because of your heart, there's purity of heart, there's character, character of Christ, there's integrity and faithfulness. But I feel like new disciples are around the corner, new converts, new signs and wonders God is going to release in this house."
But this is what's going to happen; signs and wonders in the Heavens, healings that are going to take place where people don't even have to lay their hands, they're just going to be instantly healed in meetings, on the streets - how many of you know that Peter's shadow was healing people, amen. There's going to be such an increase of anointing and healing in this house that it's going to be effortless. I hear the word “effortless healing”, an effortless healing anointing that, as you align your heart with God, there's going to be such a presence that it comes from your spirit, it comes from the heart of God, that people around you are just going to get healed and it's going to be like the woman with the issue of blood - she simply had to touch Jesus. The Lord is saying He’s going to release this in this house and in the name of Jesus we declare creative miracles, signs and wonders to be released. New converts, new disciples’ new miracles, in Jesus name. It's going to happen.
I feel that a part of the new explosion of harvest and of conversions, there's going to be a new youth explosion, I see young people by the hundreds, if not the thousands, being raised up in this house. And let me say this. When I highlight the young people, I'm not dismissing the older generation. We need the fathers and mothers but there are going to be young people, so many young people that I feel like you're going to have to strategise how to Father and Mother because how many of you know that our generation comes from Brokenness, the majority of us, and God is releasing the spirit of adoption. And Heavenly Father we say, I'm going to use the parents, I'm going to use the spiritual fathers and mothers of this house to bring a spirit of restoration and adoption and acceptance where there's rejection. He's going to deal with the orphan heart in all of us and He's releasing fathers and mothers, but He's also releasing the young people. I feel like even your "Outbreak,” services are just going to explode; there's going to be city wide revival with the youth in Brisbane, and there's going to be a youth movement that's going to rise forth from this house, so Lord we say let it be done according to Your will and according to Your plan. Lord, I pray that You would raise up the new generation of young people, Lord the revivalists, those who are radical, even the Nazarite call on some of these young people to stand for what is true, for what is right. But Lord we ask for the new wave of spiritual parenting, the anointing for spiritual parents, God. Release the spirit of adoption in this House.
I feel that there's going to be a new - I don't know if it already exists - but one of the things that God is going to do is He's going to release a House of Prayer. I don't know if you have a house of prayer, I don't know how often it is but I even see, Oh, let me just read it, it's right back there, "House of Prayer” - I didn't even notice that. But I feel there's going to be a 24 hour House of Prayer that God's going to release, if it doesn't exist already, where there's going to be around the clock house of worship, and prayer and harp and bowl worship that will go before the Lord. But it's going to be unique and with that, there's going to be a new sound that God is going to release, and I know Aaron is celebrating his 6th year anniversary with Rebecca today, but I know Joel and the worship team; in fact you guys just stand up really quick, I just want to release something to the worship team. I declare in the name of Jesus that there are new sounds, new songs, new rhythms , even a new genre of music that's going to come forth from this house. And we love Bethel, we love Hillsong, we love the places where God is highlighting the worship , but I feel that there is something so special out of this house that people will say that the Glory Gathering, that the music coming from... I just see your own production of music, your own production house, even if I can just say of film, television and music. So Lord we release the newness and worship God. And everyone who is called to prayer, all the intercessors, I want you to stand to your feet, because I feel there's a greater marriage between worship and prayer taking place in this new season, so Lord we thank You for the intercessors, those that have been praying, those that have toiled, those with a sweat on their brow who have been praying for years, Lord would You release the 24 hr House of prayer in this house, Lord. Release a new expression of harp and bowl worship, Lord God, that it would even be different than I Hop, it would be different than Bethel, not because we don't like those things, those are great, awesome things, those have been forerunners, but I pray there would be something new birthed from this house, in the name of Jesus. I feel there are new lyrics going to come; we were just speaking about spoken word -new poetry, new expressions. Thank You, Lord.
I feel the Lord is also going to release the arts in this house, like never before. It's going to be a new expression of the arts. We were talking about the renaissance, which means
"re-birth," there's a new birth of arts and entertainment, that I know Sydney and Melbourne are highlighted in terms of places and we totally revere and respect people like Nicole Kidman and Russell Crow and Mel Gibson who've come out of Australia, but I feel that from this house there are going to be people who are going to rise up in the art and entertainment world, not just in Australia but in Hollywood, so if you're called to the arts I want you to stand to your feet right now. If you're a writer, director, producer; if you're a dancer, singer, song writer, musician; If you're called to acting, writing, directing, producing - all those things - called to the arts in some way, shape or form, God is releasing new strategies, new creative ideas, new screen plays, new ways of approaching acting, new songs, new choreographed dances that come from Him, that come from Heaven, Lord; release the sound and the songs of Heaven, Lord. Release a new birth, a re-birth, release a renaissance spirit right now to all the artists, God I pray that you would raise up artists in this house, that we would be the head and not the tail, not just in Australia but in Hollywood. Lord I declare from this house there would be Academy Award winners , there would be Grammy Award winners, there would be those who stand on podiums to declare that You are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, and it would come from this house in the name of Jesus.
I feel like the Lord is releasing new ideas. Lord I pray for the new Innovative, creative, inventions to come. If you're an inventor, if you like to create with your hands, I want you to stand to your feet. The Lord is saying, "I want to co-create with you. I don't just want you to create on your own, I want to partner with you and create with you, says the Lord. Lord I pray for new ideas, new ways of thinking, new approaches to the craft itself, God; release the new, release the new. Renew the mind, right now in the name of Jesus; strategies, blue prints from Heaven. Release the blue print from Heaven right now; it's coming to you right now. The creative blue print from Heaven is being downloaded into your spirit right now, in Jesus name. I get that, "creative blue print from Heaven."
There are songs in Heaven that have never been sung on earth that God is going to release to you, sounds that have never even been discovered yet that exist in Heaven, that is going to be released to you. Creativity that exists in Heaven that has never been released on earth is being released and imparted to you right now, in Jesus name.
Re-birth, re-birth, re-birth. Even those people who have more of a business mind set, the Lord's going to give you strategies. In fact, I want you to join these people, I'm just getting this right now; if you're called to the business realm, the business mountain, I want you to stand to your feet. There are new approaches to making money, creative ideas, that have been hidden in your heart or that God is going to release to you for the first time; new approaches to how to make money for the Gospel and the Kingdom of God. Lord, I pray that you would release the finances of Heaven right now into our spirits, Lord, strategies of Heaven right now.
Pastor James, I felt this in my Spirit even before I got up here but there's something so special and unique about your calling. The Lord says the best is yet to come, that what you have sown you are going to reap a hundred fold, even more than a hundred fold and the Lord has seen your faithfulness and the Bible says, that those who are faithful in little, He will entrust with much. The Lord is going to release, I declare this in Faith, Lord that you would release the finances of Heaven, into Pastor James, Lord, that he would be able to expand and extend the Kingdom of God to the nations of the world; and even as he shared that he's going to the nation, I pray that it would just be a foretaste of what's to come in his life, Lord, for the nations are an open door for you and your wife and your family and for the ministry God has in you. Lord, I pray for the apostolic mantel to come upon my brother, in the name of Jesus. I pray for the business apostolic mantel to be released, Lord God, even what Dr Peter Wagner has; the mindset he carries, for business, for marketing, for strategies, Lord, release it into his spirit right now, birth it in Jesus name! To the nations, I keep getting that for you and your wife, "the nations are an open door, the nations are an open door" -where right now it seems like it’s just one or two, the Lord is just going to open the doors for the nations, to be visited and to be reached through you and through your finances.
Thank you Lord for business strategies, creative ways to make money. Finances are going to explode in this house. I see it so in my Spirit, there's going to be so much money, and I say this very carefully, but there’s going to be so much money released, you're not going to know what to do with it, there's going to be - abundant favour is upon this house, and upon you individually (Pastor James), oh Jesus thank you, Lord.
So House of prayer, ministry school for the artist, for the business people. Thank you, Jesus there's a new birth. I feel that, again I mentioned this earlier and I know Cindy Jacobs has prophesied this, but there's new property to be acquired, I don't know when, I don't know how, I don't know even know where, but the Lord is preparing a house for you, because the Bible says, that when you build His house, He builds yours. You've been faithful to build His house and so the Lord is preparing a place for you, it's not just in Heaven but it’s here on earth, there is a place right now, I feel it in my spirit, there's a place that He is just waiting, it's almost like the secret, mystery of God, He's ready just to reveal it to you. So Lord wherever it is, we pray that you would just unlock all the doors , that you would grant the Pastors and the leaders of this house the keys, not just the keys to the Kingdom but the keys to the building that you've prepared for them, Lord that if it here's anything that stands in the way, that You would just remove that, that there would be a clear path, a clear path to that door, Lord Jesus that is open before them, that they would step into a new building. I don't know if it's brand new; the "neos" new or new as in, the new season that God has for you, but there's something new about property that God is releasing. I get plural, I get, "properties," with an "s," new properties Lord, release it, release it.
Lord for a discipleship training school, for for a ministry school, Lord, for an art school, Lord, for just an equipping centre, a prayer centre. I just see multiple properties being released through this house, and Lord is saying, "Enlarge the tent pegs."
Joel 2 is the prophetic word being released tonight to the nation of Australia. I pray for Glory Gathering, that it would be a light in a city, that it would be a city upon a hill, that it would stand strong in this nation Lord as a place of refuge, a place of healing, a place of hope, Lord. And I know, I think this has already happened, but I feel like there's going to be so many miracles coming from this house that people are going to bypass the hospitals and come here first because there's so much power, anointing to be healed and so we just say do it Lord, bring healing, Lord. There's the proximity of His presence is going to be so powerful that people coming within walking distance, with even driving distance of this house, are going to be hit with the presence of love. There’s like a radius of His anointing around this place, thank You, Jesus."
