This word was prayed over me and my book, The Establishment, in the first house of prayer we helped to plant, before the book was published. The interesting thing is, this word is not primarily about the book, it’s primarily about the establishment of House of Prayer Centers in strategic spots around the globe.
I’m sharing this now because I this word is more important now than ever before. The confirmation here that God is doing this work of establishment is very encouraging, but the need is becoming more intense as greater and greater darkness falls around the world. This gives me a sense of great urgency. Please pray with us that God will bring the breakthrough for the establishment NOW!
The Spirit of God is calling us to establish His House, and then to come in!
War Room Word 4/8/04
“This is a strategic step, an important step; the Bride of Christ must accept God’s invitation as He is wooing us into His House!
“Lord, I thank You for what You’re doing in the Earth. I thank You for the Age that You have called us to be in, this time, the End of the Age. We just thank You for the beginning of the revelation that You are giving to us: that You are drawing us in, You’re drawing us into Your House, You’re drawing us in gently by Your Spirit, inviting us to come into Your House.
“You want us to come near to You right now. It’s a calling in, a calling in, and I know You are doing it in all the Earth. A calling in of Your Bride, and Your Bride is saying, “come in, come into the Temple”, God is saying “come into My House”.
“This is a very, very important time for the Bride of Christ to respond, to respond to the Lord. Now, this is a NOW word to respond to the Lord to come in, to come in and be with the Father; to get His heart, to hear His heart and to be baptized, to be soaked in the Spirit of God… Because when You want to send us out, it’s not by our might or by our power but by Your Spirit; and we need to come into that, we need to come into that. This is such a strategic time for the Bride of Christ to come in. And I just call out to Her to come in, to come into the House. Come into the House of the Father. Respond to the Holy Spirit! He’s wooing you, Bride of Christ. Come in, come in, come in. Respond instantly: come! Nothing is more important at this time.
“And I ask that You, God, would drop the revelation, drop the revelation on Her, drop the Spirit of Revelation on us the Bride of Christ, to understand that You are calling us in — and that this is a strategic part of the End Time Movement that You are orchestrating, and that You want to anoint Your Bride [in this]. You want to anoint Your Bride, and You want to launch Her out. You want to launch Her out into the End Time Harvest.
“But we don’t want to be sent out prematurely without the anointing of the Holy Spirit on us. Because we will go with nothing to offer. We’ll have the heart of the Father, we’ll see the hungry, we’ll see the naked, we’ll see the poor, but we won’t be able to do anything, because we haven’t done this first step first.
“So we need to do first things first. We need to come into Your House. We need to get Your heart. We need to get Your strategy. We need to get Your anointing and then we will be propelled out into the End Time Harvest, and we will join You and we will be in sync with You and in what You are doing in the Earth at this time. So Lord I just pray grace over us, grace over us, grace over us that we would see what You’re doing at this time and that this is important, this is so, so important.
