A few years ago while asleep, I found my spirit man sitting in a room in heaven. Directly in front of me was a large window and I could see the earth down below. I sensed Jesus was standing to my immediate right and slightly behind me.
I heard Jesus say, “See the problem” as I was directed to look upon the earth, He then said, “This is my word.” He began to declare His word over the problem. When Jesus would say, “See the problem” I didn’t see any problem when I looked out the window at the earth below. It soon became apparent I was in a training class and the instructor was Jesus Christ Himself.
As He spoke His words, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt, and as soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation, I stood up, pointed at the earth and shouted, “And I release that into the earth!” Then I sat back down and the sequence was repeated all night long as Jesus would point out problems in the earth. He would declare His word over it and I would stand up and release it into the earth.
When I awoke the next morning, my wife asked me if I had experienced any dreams during the night as we do most mornings and I told her that it wasn’t a dream but I was sitting in a room in heaven with Jesus in some sort of heavenly school with Jesus.
The next night I found my spirit man back in heaven sitting in the same chair I had sat in the night before, I was again gazing out the window at the earth. Then I heard Him say, “See the problem” as my attention was focused on the earth below. He then said, “This is my word.” Again when He spoke His word, everything in my spirit man was filled with the most powerful anointing I’d ever felt. As soon as He finished speaking, without hesitation I would stand up and point at the earth and shout, “And I release that into the earth.”
This sequence was repeated all night just as it occurred during the first night.
On the third night I was once again sitting in the same chair, looking out the window towards earth. This time Jesus began to speak and my spirit man was filled with excitement as the “Living Word” spoke. I was about to jump up out of my chair and release what He said into the earth when I heard Him say, “I release that into the earth”.
This caught me off guard because the other two nights I had done all the releasing of His word. I turned to look back to where Jesus was and I saw Him in a cream colored robe walking away from me, and as He walked, He turned His head back towards me and said, “That one was for you.”
That ended three nights of one the most amazing encounters with Christ I’ve ever had. About a year later, while my wife and I were sitting on the patio of a Mexican restaurant, I heard Him say, “Now you do it.” I knew He was referring to the heavenly encounter I had experienced a year prior.
God wants us to recognize the problems in our life, family, church, city, region and world and find out what He says about it in His word and then release the word of God over situations in order to see dramatic change in the earth.
On another occasion about a year later, I received an email from a man who worked at the same company I used to work, the email was very inspiring and I sensed the anointing of the Holy Spirit as I read it. I was very blessed by his words of faith and support and I said, “Lord, bless everyone who prays for us,” Immediately, I heard the Father say, “With what?”
This response surprised me as what I had just said sounded holy, yet God’s response made me pause for a moment as I realized that God can’t do anything with just the word “blessed.” Yes, it sounds holy to say, and we say it all the time when someone sneezes, or as we say farewell to someone, “bless you” or “be blessed,” but it doesn’t give God anything to work with. His word teaches us that we have already been blessed and by just saying, “Bless them” or “bless you” or any variable of these words, gives God nothing to work with in order to truly bless them. “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ”. Eph 1:3
I began to form a prayer from Ephesians 1 where Paul was praying that we may receive a spirit of wisdom and revelation with understanding of God’s nature.
Eph 1:17-19 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”
He once spoke to me in His authoritative voice early one morning while I was in prayer and slowly said, “My people limit Me,”! He used the voice like you heard used in the movie Ten Commandments.
As you can imagine I didn’t move a muscle nor utter a word, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and I was on a crash course in the matter. If you want to see your world change, then speak the word of God over every situation that concerns you and watch God get involved in an awesome way. The prophet Daniel was told by the angel in Daniel 9, “I have come for your words.”
God is waiting for you to open your mouth and proclaim His word over situations! Do it today and you will see God’s mighty right arm extend in the earth and things will change and they will change in a big way.
I pray this gives you some wheels to run on and begin to grow in the dynamic use of God’s word to become a more effective Christian in your community and in the kingdom of God.
