Hello dear friends! Merry Christmas to you all!
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given …” —Isaiah 9:6
May the miracle of Christ’s birth fill your heart with warmth and love this Christmastime.
Thank you for your continued love and support…
This day, Lord, show us your love and glory. We thank you for your provision. We thank you, Lord, and we give this day into your hands to do as you please, in each of us. We magnify your name and thank you for your presence. We exalt your name, Lord, and thank you for your word. Lord, let this day be a glory unto your name. We give you praise and glory, in Jesus name. Amen.
Turn to Psalms 24 please. We have many nations represented here today. I believe God wants to speak His way. Amen.
Psalm 24: 1. “The earth [is] the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
2. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4. He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully
5. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6. This [is] the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8. Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory. Selah.”
I believe He wants us to open up our gates and let the King of glory in. Remember it’s the King of glory that’s going to go to the nations: the King strong and mighty; the Lord mighty in battle. He is getting His battle ready to go to the nations as the King of glory. He is going to the nations strong and mighty; mighty in battle. We can’t battle: Christ in us is going to battle. Now He’s saying, “Get ready for it.” Open up your gates and let the King of glory come in; for He is ready to march, He is ready to go to the nations and He is ready to bring about this great promise.
“The earth [is] the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” He created every one of us, all over the world, and He’s not going to let the devil have that. He’s ready for battle, but we aren’t. He has to get us ready for we have to open up our gates and let the King of glory come in and let Him fill us with His love and provision and glory. He says to open up to His love and let Him take the place of everything else. Open up and let God be God and let Him be as He is: the King of Glory.
Isaiah 9: 5. “For every battle of the warrior [is] with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but [this] shall be with burning [and] fuel of fire.
6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7. Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the
throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
Jesus said, “I am the true vine and you are the branches.” Now in the gospel of Isaiah He speaks of the branch and the branches.
Isaiah 4:2. “In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth [shall be] excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
3. And it shall come to pass, [that he that is] left in Zion, and [he that] remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, [even] every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
4. When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5. And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory [shall be] a defence.
6. And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.”
Go back to the 2nd verse. “In that day…” This is ‘that’ day He’s talking about. This is the day when the Lord is going to reveal to the world that He is God and there is none other. Here we find Jesus declaring that He is the true vine and we are the branches. I want to show you something: the big B is Jesus himself, the big branch, but here it has a small b, the small branch.
He says, “Open up your gates and let the King of glory come in. You are my branches and I want to make you beautiful and glorious and lovely.” He wants to fill us with His love and His glory. Now He says, “The fruit of the earth [shall be] excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. I am the true vine and you are the branches. I want to fill you branches with my love and glory and I’m going to send you to the nations.” Remember, we’ve opened up our gates and declared Him the King of Glory. He is the King of Glory and the almighty God, the everlasting one. He says, “Come, I will take you to the nations. I will show my mighty love, provision and glory.”
He’s waiting for us to open up our gates and let Him come in. He will bring us His love, provision and glory; but we must go to the nations with Him. As we go to the nations with Him we are going to remember that it’s the Lord of hosts, the Lord of glory, the Lord of the whole earth.
It is time for us to lay aside everything. It’s time for us to realize that God is now moving and gathering those who will allow Him to open up their gates, so that He can bring His love, provision and glory to the nations. We give Him glory because He said, “Ye are the branches.” The fruit is on the earth and we are going out there to gather the fruit. The fruit is not in us, the fruit is on the earth. “In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious and the fruit of the earth [shall be] excellent and comely.”
What are we filled with? We’re filled with His love and glory. Where are we going? We’re going out to gather the fruit. How are we going to gather the fruit? By being filled with the King of Glory? He is going to declare to the world that He wants to use these earthen vessels; this people that He has redeemed with His own precious blood; these who have allowed His love and glory to fill their temple.
Then the Lord says, “I will take you to the nations.” But He can only bring us to the nations when we realize that the gates have to be open and we have to let this King of Glory be in charge. We can’t be rule, He is in charge. We have to open up and say, “King of Glory, Lord of Hosts move over these nations.” He’s waiting for us to prepare ourselves, in Him, so He can take us to the nations.
Many nations are represented here today and I know God has ordained it; because this is His day to say to you, “Open up your gates and let the King of Glory come in. Let Him come in! Let the Mighty God, the Mighty Counselor, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace come in. We are honored when we meet leaders of nations; but remember, we’re meeting the Almighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace.
Do you realize what an honor we have in these temples of clay that He created to be filled with His kingdom, His love and His glory? Sometimes I wonder about this great and mighty honor that He has given us; to think that God would chose to live in a temple of clay and that He’s chosen us to represent Him.
Remember, He is in charge, not us. He’s the one that’s going to do the speaking and change the lives of the people in all these nations. This is His hour and moment. He’s saying to us, “Come enter into my kingdom.” Jesus said that His kingdom is in us. How do you suppose He fills us when we ignore Him and His kingdom? He’s trying to shake us and cause us to know that it is the Lord God who has commissioned us, to open up our gates and let the King of Glory come in. Let this mighty, wonderful counselor come in. The Mighty God, the Holy Father and the Prince of Peace come in, of whose kingdom there is no end.
Think about Him being in you and me. Does He reign in us? We need to realize we are no longer of this world; we are of the kingdom of God. God is asking us to awaken and realize it is now time for Him to go to the nations. He is saying, “I’m preparing you so that I can take you to the nations and be revealed to them. I don’t think we are going to reveal Him; He is going to reveal Himself and He’s going to show himself to the nations. I don’t believe it’s a little thing; I believe it’s a mighty thing. He says, “Open up your gates and let the King of Glory come in. Who is the King of Glory?”
Isaiah 59: 16. “And he saw that [there was] no man, and wondered that [there was] no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
17. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance [for] clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.”
Are we going to be doing the fighting? No! He in us will do the fighting. Then in Romans 13:14. “But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh.” Now Ephesians 6 says, “Be strong in the Lord.” We put Him on; now He is going to fight these battles for us. Struggle with the devil, forget it! The Lord is already prepared; He’s already got the helmet of salvation on. He’s got on the breastplate of righteousness and the sword of the spirit. He has the garment of vengeance against the enemy.
Quit struggling with the devil, turn him over to Jesus. He’s ready to do battle. We need to let Him battle. Praise the Lord! I don’t know if we believe this; but the enemy knows he can’t win if we let the Lord do our fighting for us. We need to realize what God is saying. He is the God of battles and already has on His armor. He has on the garment of vengeance against the enemy; and is now going to go against that devil.
Let’s get it in a proper order so He can do it for us.
Nations are coming down because they have decided that they didn’t want God or His anointed. They are coming down and the King of Glory is going in. He’s ready for it!
“Now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ.” Now I’m ready to go to battle against Satan! We’re going to battle? No! We’re going to watch Him fight the battle.
How can you fight a battle standing still as it says in Ephesians? Jesus says to put on Jesus Christ and let Him go to fight the battle for us; for He’s already equipped with the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the sword of the spirit and the garment of vengeance. The zeal of the Lord is going to perform it. He’s going to come in like fury against the enemy.
So we have opened up our gates and we are ready for Him to go to battle through us. I’m thankful for the word of God that brings forth Jesus as the captain of battles. He was waiting for this time so that He could declare to the nations, “Now is the time, I am going to the nations to declare to them that I am their creator. I created the earth and everyone that’s in it and now I’m going to battle and bring in the harvest.” I believe we have never seen anything like this. I believe the King of Battles is ready and waiting for us to open up our gates and let Him come in and fight the battle against Satan.
Do you remember the story Johosophet in 2nd Chronicles 20? He went before the Lord and said, “They are too many armies against us. We can’t win.” The Lord said, “Stand ye still and see the salvation of the Lord. Stand ye still and the Lord will fight this battle.” What did He do? He told Him in all three places where the enemy was. They began to fast and pray and the Lord sent the worshipers before the army; it wasn’t the army that fought the battle it was the worshipers that brought the presence of God into the battle and He did the fighting. Verse 24 says, “…when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.”
I was enjoying the praises to the Lord this morning. Think of what an honor, what a privilege, to have the Lord of Hosts directing this battle against the powers of darkness and against the awful things in this earth. I know what I’m talking about. He’s never lost a battle. This is the major battle that He’s going through right now, preparing our hearts, and allowing us, to open our hearts and let the King of Glory come in. Oh, this mighty God, how we need to open up our hearts and our lives and let Him in; for only He can win over this earth.
I know there’s such a thing as the anti-Christ and all the plans of the world government; but remember our God is the one that’s going to conquer it all. Isn’t it wonderful that He’s going to let us go with Him? We are on-lookers as God brings the family of God together all over the world.
We should be bubbling with joy as we open up our gates to the King of Glory. I am honored in a lot of ways and I appreciate it. The greatest honor I have is the King of Glory living in me with His love and provision and glory. This is the greatest honor I could ever have to have Him reigning and ruling in my life. I am blessed that in these years He’s let us live in the desert and made Himself more real to us. He’s in charge; this is His day. We’re honoring Him for it is the Lord that has done these things and not us.
God is going to shake some things today. He’s opening us up to let the King of Glory come in and He is ready for battle. He told me when I was coming from Montana, I heard a loud voice saying, “Now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom and power of His Christ. Now I am coming again the devil.” This is preparation. Open up your gates and let this King of Glory come in for He’s establishing His kingdom in us and of His kingdom, there is no end.
Remember who we are; we belong to the Kingdom of God. This kingdom is placed within us and the King is in residence here. We need to realize He’s saying, “…salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ….” is here. We are now expecting the demonstration of His love in such a measure as we have never known and as we open up the gates, His Love and His glory is going to the nations.
There is so much that God wants to give us today that will prepare us for the final harvest coming upon the earth. I don’t think it’s going to come the way we thought it was. He’s saying it’s time to open your gates so He can demonstrate His kingdom to the world. He can only demonstrate the kingdom through us; but it is now time to set this kingdom in order. Even though the devil thinks he’s having a heyday, God is ready to pull him down. Satan is coming down! We have to get positioned in God so He can use us to declare that He is a wonderful, loving God; a God who created the world and sent His beloved Son to bring us back to Him.
This is an awesome time and God is declaring to us today: “Open up your hearts and let the King of Glory take charge.” He is going to go to battle and we will be safe in Him as He takes the on the garment of vengeance against the enemy. The wicked are coming down! Malachi says we are not going to find them anymore. Oh! I thought we were going off to heaven and they would all be left here. That isn’t what it says. Let me read it to you.
Malachi 4: 1. “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
We used to have a barn and a place for animals. If we opened that gate and tried to catch a calf, they were gone. It says we will be like these calves, when God is ready to send us forth. “And ye shall tread down the wicked…”
How are we going to tread down the wicked? We’re going to tread them down with His love, provision and glory. Not at all the way we thought or have been taught.
3. “And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do [this], saith the LORD of hosts.”
Who’s winning? The Kingdom of God is in us, and of that Kingdom, there is no end. He said, “Open up your gates.” We’re not just talking about church; we are talking about the kingdom. We must enter into His kingdom and watch as God brings forth a battle and of His kingdom there is no end. He will establish it and declare it. Isn’t that exciting? Where do you belong? In His kingdom! The rest of it is going to fade away; but of His kingdom there shall be no end.
We have the glorious privilege of having this kingdom and the King of Glory, with all of His majesty and with all His power, to take us to the nations to declare to them that the King of Glory reigns. Amen? He reigns!
I want to introduce you to the King of Glory. Open up your gates, open them wide. This King of Glory will fill you with His love and glory. He is waiting for every one of us to honor Him and realize His kingdom must come; His will must be done in us, as it is in heaven. It must be done and He is going to do it and He is doing it now in a greater measure than the world has ever known. He is not only going to declare it, He is going to do it. He is ready to avenge us against Satan and all that he has done to God’s people. He didn’t create man to be tormented by Satan. He created us to be filled with His love and with His kingdom and to be like Jesus.
Open up your gates and let the King of Glory come in. I want to give God the glory for what He is going to do now in the realm of His kingdom. Let’s all hail the name of Jesus.
A few weeks ago the Lord spoke to me and He said tonight we begin phase 2. I was aware that it was a new beginning with authority that He placed upon us. He declared, “…now is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God and the power of His Christ. Now I’m coming against Satan.” This is phase 2. We’ve never seen or heard it before, but its phase 2.
I see many nations here today and God wants to adopt your nation now. We believe that God is speaking to each country represented, “I adopt your nation.” He is opening doors all over the world where He is ready for this King of Glory to come in. This King of Glory is waiting for us to open up the gates. The Lord is now ready to go, in full force, against Satan.
We are ready for it because He has on the whole armor and He is in charge and He has the garment of vengeance and He will fight the battles for us. He is going to do it; and He is going to show the nations that He is the creator as His love and provision and glory are demonstrated to them.
See this sign up here, Adopt a Nation. We were in Canada and the Lord told me to change our name and call it All Nations. This is the 2nd phase that God is bringing to us. It’s time now to declare All Nations belong to God.
We are honored today. We believe that God is adopting the nations of the world, and is bringing His love and provision and glory to them. We have many things that are happening in the world right now; it’s God’s judgment of the nations. He’s pulling down the strongholds of the leaders that refuse to allow God and His Christ to be given to their nation. He’s going in and declaring I’m going to take the nations back. He told me, “I’m going to the nations and I’m going to declare those nations mine.” He wants us to know His provision, love and glory.
I witnessed, in these last three years, God being poured out all over Asia and China, the greatest force of His love and glory and provision I’ve ever known. They will know that God loves them.
How many nations are represented here today? All over the place there are nations. God wants to honor your nation with His love and provision and glory. I feel the awesomeness of His presence. He is now ready to show your nation that He is the living God and is ready to bring His love and provision and glory to your nation and reveal Jesus to those people and gather His harvest. The provision of His love is for every person and nation if they will acknowledge Him. Praise the Lord.
