Breaking the “Almost” Barrier

There is an invisible barrier that drives men into mediocrity. It cripples the best of us, paralyses us with the poison of rejection and renders us immobile. This barrier manifest by close doors and broken dreams.. and if you want to be GREAT you must find the strength to pierce  this barrier. When it comes to advancing, obstacles must always be addressed. There is no way to get around it. Usually close doors reveal areas of weakness and incompetence. The great thing about barriers is that they stretch us, they push us to our natural limits and force us into the corner of the supernatural.. barriers birth the spirit of pioneers and manufacture discoverers and inventors. Every great leader comes face to face with barriers.

Acts 26:28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian. 

Paul was confronted with the “almost” barrier when he was given the opportunity to present the gospel before King Agrippa. After the end of Paul’s presentation, the king said “you almost”.. meaning that Paul fell short. Maybe he didn’t communicate it well, maybe he didn’t exegete the scriptures with clarity, maybe he had an attitude, whatever it was, it stopped him from achieving his goal. This “almost” barrier will always meet you on your road to greatness and you must have the fortitude to OVERCOME.

1John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

The “almost” barrier must be faced head on with FAITH. Now faith must be understood within the context of a power source. Faith is not the belief in the unseen, but its literally the bridge that connects us with a mighty God. Faith draws us close to God, and prompts Him to draw close to us (James 4:8).  This is the Law of Worship. The Law of Worship says that whatever you worship you gain access to. In the realm of worship you receive an impartation of: character, resources and agenda. Faith allows you to see what others can not, hear what others can not, and do what others can not. Faith allows you to see beyond the barrier and give you endurance to withstand the opposition, because you know victory is one push away. Faith sees the barrier as a platform for the supernatural.. Faith sees the barrier as a lunching pad for your next level.. Faith knows not “no”.. for in it the promises of God are yes and amen (2 Cor. 1:20).

The “almost” barrier must be broken in your life. Some people are not just confronted with this barrier, but live in this world. It is the “almost” dimension. When it comes to breakthrough, penetration and advancement, they always “almost” but never seem to make it into the realm of completion. You are plagued with success always being one step away.. rejection has bound you from moving forward.. and today it must be broken. You are made for success.. you are made to be a Barrier Breaker.. “almost” must be broken.

In order to break this barrier, you must:

1. Develop a life of consistent expansion and stretching. Do what you do not do often.. try new things and push the boundaries of your comfort zone.

2. Address every area of incompetence. Any skill that reveals your shortcomings, spend time to perfect and master that skill or that area.

3. Broaden your perspective and surround yourself with people who have the scent of word changers. Surround yourself with people of faith and people that refuse to accept no.

4. Release a constant surge of Prayer, Prophesy, Praise and Worship. No one transcends barriers like worshippers..

Say this prayer aloud:

I repent for mediocrity.. I repent for slothfulness.. I repent for laziness and oversleeping. I break the spirit of Rejection and denounce any ties I have with incompetence. I renounce normalcy and ordinary and I decree I live in the realm of extraordinary. I declare that EXCELLENCE is my portion and PROMOTION is my inheritance. I break the barrier of “almost” and I move into the realm of “finish”. Father give me the grace to finish and the anointing to endure closed doors.. in Jesus name. Amen.

I felt impressed to write.. something. Usually when I write a blog, I have studied.. the Lord has laid a burden upon my heart for the release of a specific subject. I pray and study, and then spend adequate time writing.. this is not one of those blogs. Tonight, I just got home with my wife from one of the most tremendous corporate times of worship that I have ever been in. I am sitting here writing in awe.. tears fill me eyes.. you know why? Because I see what God has in store for this Generation. This Generation is not relegated to young people, people born in a particular time bracket, but anyone desiring to see God move like never before. I want to say that, that the moves that we have seen have been very cultural in their expression, and because of that it locked some people out from ever experiencing that dimension and dispensation of God.. but no more. What God is releasing now is such an orchestra of different expressions and anointings that it will not belong to one people group or one culture. The culture of man is about to be totally stripped from our expression, and the culture of the Kingdom of God will be released in RAW FORM. I didn’t title this, because any title would have belittled what I am trying to communicate, and I have probably still not communicated this well.. but this is my challenge to you. Step out.. believe big.. see miracles.. thanks for reading. I love you so much, with all my heart.

With Expectation,

Bryan Meadows


The Technology of Promotion

Promotion is your portion. It is God’s will that you continue to progress in skill, character, anointing and favor. For the past few months we have been building a POWER TEAM in the city of Atlanta for the purpose of launching a city church called Embassy International Worship Center. We received an influx of prophetic gifts and to facilitate their development we started a Prophetic Track geared towards effectively equipping them to walk in what God had placed on their life. During the course of those meetings one of the most powerful words that the Lord released for our House, and for our lives, was that we had entered a season of Promotion. Every word that is spoken within a House, both prophetically and through the set man, must be echoed by the prophets of that House. This is “prophetic echoes”. This is when God takes a corporate word and puts it in the mouth of a company.

Deut. 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 

Is. 51:16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. 

Prophetic Echoes is a particular science that God uses to release a word into the DNA of a House. Every prophetic word released must enter into the bloodstream of that ministry through releasing it repeatedly so that the word never leaves the ear of the congregation. It must leave the church and follow the congregants home, and then be established there as well. This is what PROMOTION did to me. This word haunted me for weeks.. and now my prayer is that it haunts you as well.

PROMOTION is a word that I want you to PUT IN YOUR MOUTH, because it is so vital that you kill complacency and seek God for your next level.. and this comes through PROMOTION. Promotion is the technology that God uses to advance you in both METRON (measure) and AUTHORITY. Promotion is defined as advancement in rank or position. In chess it actually means to exchange (a pawn) for any piece other than a king when the pawn reaches the 8th rank. WOW. When a Pawn (a simple, low ranking piece) reaches (through wisdom, endurance, and patience) the 8th rank they receive an UPGRADE. This upgrade allows the Pawn to move in dimensions previously unknown and locked off.. this is what PROMOTION is. This is your Portion (say that aloud). THIS IS MY PORTION!!!

Promotion is seen all throughout the scriptures. Jesus even spoke about Promotion when He said.. Luke 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. The process of demotion and promotion is a scriptural reality.  Saul, because of the mismanagement of his anointing and assignment, was DEMOTED. David, because of his consistency and commitment in private, was PROMOTED. When was the last time you were PROMOTED in the Lord? The word “humbleth” in the Greek actually means to be depressed, and it carries with it the connotation of being prostrate before the Lord in a posture of worship. Worship is the quickest way to see promotion. God always promotes the worshipper, because the worshipper stays in a constant place of evaluation and repentance. Repentance is actually a system of upgrading. It is the shedding of one way of thinking for another, which always results in promotion. You can never be promoted without repentance being activated. Through repentance one prepares himself for his next level. Repenting is not saying “I’m sorry for sinning” only, it is the process that God uses to change our thought patterns through conviction. We must REPENT for complacency, REPENT for plateauing, REPENT for false humility, REPENT for staying where we are for too long (Israel had a promotion problem in the wilderness). Now promotion does not come through seeking promotion, it comes from seeking God.

Psa. 75:6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

This is a very powerful verse of scripture. It says that promotion does not come through the East, West or even South, but from the North, which is the God place. The North is the cardinal direction of the Divine. If we had time we would speak about the Power of the North, but maybe later. The East is the place of knowledge.. many times knowledge produces False Promotion.

1Cor. 8:1Knowledge puffeth up

Many times people obtain degrees, doctorates or even certificates and think that this is promotion. Education is wonderful.. but pride is the quickest way to be demoted in the Kingdom of God. The West is the place of work and engineering. Promotion does NOT come through you working hard to gain favor in the sight of men. You can NOT promote yourself. Promotion should be a continual reality for the Believer.. not through flattery or bribery, hook ups or back-room deals, but through the EFFECTIVE stewardship of current Seasons, Resources, Measures and Relationships.. BEWARE of being Promoted by men.. stop looking for a HAND OUT, look for the Hand of God. The South is the place of Demonic movements. When a plan or agenda is positioned against the plan of God, Satan will promote it. Satan will grow your church, send you around the world, he will pay for your plane ticket if he knows you are working against the plan of God.  The word “promotion” in Psalm 75:6 has with it the idea of ascending a hill or mountain.

Psa. 24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 

Psa. 24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 

This is not just a worship scripture, this is a scripture for promotion. Who shall be promoted? We understand that we must have clean hands and a pure heart, we know that pride is the quickest way to be demoted. But when the scripture speaks about swearing deceitfully, it is dealing with the issue of HONOR. Dishonor will always result in demotion, while honor will always result in promotion. Dishonor will always lock you into a perpetual season of cycles. Many ministers never see promotion because they refuse to honor any other gift or anointing. Honor is your key to promotion in this season.

How do you know that you have been promoted?

2Sam. 5:12 And David perceived that the LORD had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel’s sake. 

When David received his Third Anointing, the scripture says that he “perceived” that the Lord had established him OVER.. this is the key. Promotion must be a personal revelation between you and the Lord. So can anyone say.. “hey, I have been promoted by the Lord”.. NO, of course not. Before David “perceived” this, he was ANOINTED. This is a powerful principle. Before every PROMOTION, you will receive an ANOINTING to operate on that new level. In 1 Samuel 16, David received the anointing of King before he ever sat on the throne. The anointing is going to give you the ability to execute the duties of your new office. Without the anointing your promotion has no power. Your anointing gives you the ability to prove your Promotion. It is God’s will that PROMOTION be your reality. Promotion is your Portion. It is through Promotion that God raises Kings. This is your season of Promotion.. seek God for your next level. Put this word in your mouth, worship and receive the anointing of Promotion. Stay tuned for Part 2.

The Anointing to FINISH

Pioneers are graced with both the ANOINTING to START and to FINISH. As STARTERS we are TRAILBLAZERS and TRENDSETTERS, but as FINISHERS we are RECORD BREAKERS and RECORD SETTERS. God is looking for FINISHERS.

  • Every ANOINTING is for a PURPOSE
  • Every PURPOSE has a ASSIGNMENT
  • Every ASSIGNMENT must be COMPLETED 
Whenever God wants to complete an assignment, He raises up a Son. Sons are given to complete assignments. Is. 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder… This Messianic scripture gives us a very important principle: Children are born, but Sons are given. God never puts the Government on the shoulders of children, He always places assignment and authority upon the shoulders of Sons. But children never mature into sons without the presence of Fathers. Fathers are very important to the development of Body. For the past few months we have been building, what we call, a POWER TEAM. A Power Team is a conglomerate of MEGA GIFTS (refer HERE for a short teaching on Mega Gifts) trained, equipped, commissioned and SENT OUT to affect the spiritual climate of a region or sector. We have set out to formulate an effective team to build the infrastructure of a city church called Embassy International Worship Center .  Here is a small teaching that we did at one of our Leadership Training Sessions called L.E.A.D. (Leaders Engaging in Advanced Development). Listen to The Anointing to FINISH

MEGA GIFTS

For the past several months the word “MEGA” has consumed my studies, my prayers and my pursuit. This word will set the standard for the Church’s direction in the coming years and will become a catalyst for a new generation of churches and leaders…these leaders are what I call “MEGA GIFTS” and I want to write briefly about who these leaders are. When we begin to study and dissect the word “MEGA”, we are dealing with CAPACITY. And when dealing with CAPACITY, we are dealing with DIMENSIONS. Now let’s discuss the word “MEGA”. Mega actually serves as a prefix in some cases, that makes whatever word it is connected to better or enhanced. Likewise, when there is the presence of a MEGA GIFT in a church, business or company, it INCREASES, not decreases, that particular entity’s value. “MEGA” is defined as something great or large, and in science actually carries the connotation of “millions”, as in “megaton” or “megawatt”. Mega comes from the greek word “megas” which means “great, large, or mighty”. So when we are dealing with the concept of MEGA, we are speaking of CAPACITY. Capacity is a very important factor in ministry. Capacity relates to how much we can HOLD. This is determined by our DIMENSIONS. Now our dimensions are caused and constructed by our paradigms. Paradigms are grids of thinking that produce distinct systems of thought and behavior, this creates culture (another message). Paradigms are formed by our EDUCATION, ASSOCIATIONS and SOCIALIZATION.

Our DIMENSIONS determine our CAPACITY. Sadly many of our “moves” of God have been guilty of limiting and constricting the growth of its leaders and confining them within denominational structures. Now I must say this, but many of our Apostolic Networks have slowly morphed into denominational structures claiming rights on Present Truth. No one can claim rights on Present Truth, and once one does he becomes just as delusional as those he criticizes. We must understand that there is an ecological system in the Body of Christ and we all have a part to play, and it is in the working with one another that we become more mature.

Eph. 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Fathers must increase the capacity of Sons so that they can HOLD more than the previous Generation. Sons must hold what the FUTURE demands. So again our DIMENSIONS determine our CAPACITY. Our CAPACITY determines what we can hold, which separates MEDIOCRE from MEGA. Our DIMENSIONS must be increased and enlarged. This increase occurs by the cross-pollination which comes through the activation of TEAM MINISTRY. Mega Gifts are TEAM PLAYERS.

  • Teams normally have members with complementary skills and generate synergy through a coordinated effort which allows each member to maximize his or her strengths and minimize his or her weaknesses. 
This is why MEGA GIFTS work very well in what I call POWER TEAMS. A POWER TEAM is a conglomerate of MEGA GIFTS, trained, equipped, commissioned and SENT OUT to change the spiritual dimension of a region or sector. In the coming years lone rangers will be left alone while POWER TEAMS arise to SHAKE CITIES and IMPACT NATIONS.
In Matthew 25, Jesus gives a parable of the TALENTS, where one servant was given 5 talents, one 2 and the other 1. MEGA GIFTS are 5 Talent ministries and gifts, to understand this better please review the blog on MEGA HOUSES here. But when we are dealing with MEGA GIFTS we are not speaking just of talents and abilities. Paul says in Ephesians,

Eph. 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

When Jesus gives these GIFTS, these are the DOMA gifts, or what we have come to know as GOVERNMENTAL GIFTS. I want to add here that when Jesus gave these gifts, these were not GIFTS like Paul mentions in 1 Corinthians 12. In Corinthians, Paul deals with the Charismata or the Gifts of the Spirit. These gifts are Word of Wisdom, Gift of Faith, etc and are given to the Body for the purpose of edification. The gifts in Ephesians 4 are not individual gifts, but they are GIFTS OF MEN. They are not ministries but MENistries. These men and women are actually GIFTS within themselves. The reason this is important is because when we are dealing with MEGA GIFTS, we are NOT dealing with TALENT, we are dealing with a GIFT (a person) as a whole, and this includes: Talent and Ability, Character and Vision, Impact and Posterity. There are four qualities that must be present in MEGA GIFTS that I want to deal with: Excellence, Quality, Effectiveness and Impact.
1. Excellence: In the Business World there is a law that governs customer service, production, personnel and client relations, and this is the Law of Best Practice. This Law must be activated in the GIFTS and Houses of the 21st century if we are going to see lasting results. The Law of Best Practice must include market research, a standard in the quality of our preachers and a constructive look into our presentation, which refers to both our homiletic release and our worship experience as a whole. We can NOT be behind technologically. We have allowed our Contemporary brothers and sisters to take the lead in graphics and branding, we must grasp the importance of EXCELLENCE.
2. Quality: The subject of QUALITY is always highjacking the mind of the MEGA GIFT. And when dealing with quality we must address 3 things: The Depth of Revelation, The Degree of Relevance, and the Dimension of Rank.
  • The Depth of Revelation: MEGA GIFTS are what I call Dimensionalist. They are not held captive by one stream of thought, or one well of revelation. Their interpretive skills of the scripture are usually based on Apostolic Models and not denominational settings. They transcend their TIME and SPACE to touch generations unborn. The Depth of Revelation must increase by the use of what Kevin Conner calls MASTER KEYS. These KEYS unlock doors of the scripture to give us access into a reservoir of the Counsels of our God.
  • The Degree of Relevance: Are we relevant? This is a question that haunts the MEGA GIFT. Relevance goes beyond the level of comprehension our audiences have, it is the position of our word as it relates to the plan of God in the Earth. Relevance has more to do with TIMING than it has to do with audience or age appositeness. Where does our WORD fit in the plan of God and is it packed with the capacity to make the next generation pregnant with destiny.
  • The Dimension of Rank: RANK is very important to the MEGA GIFTS. Rank can be increased by the FAITHFUL stewardship of our gifts, anointing, and revelation (Matt. 25: 23). Rank is our “metron” or measure of rule. MEGA GIFTS move “metronically” or according to the degree and dimension of their MEASURE of RULE. Rank deals with AUTHORITY and INFLUENCE which determines IMPACT and IMPRINT (deal with this later). Mega Gifts are always increasing in measure and being promoted in RANK.
3. Effectiveness: Mega Gifts are extremely sensitive to their effectiveness. Effectiveness does not live in the realm of public opinion, but in the assignment and anointing given by God. Our effectiveness is in the knowing of our unique assignment, and in the distinction of our anointing. We must be careful to understand what God has called US to do, and not what is popular or “acceptable”. Being effective is being committed to God’s assignment for your life and consistent in seeing it applied. We are effective when we do what God has called us to do. This understanding should eliminate COPY CATS and ungodly DUPLICATION.
4. Impact: Mega Gifts are extremely IMPACTING. While this may seem very similar to effectiveness, they are very different. Effectiveness deals with being true to your calling and assignment, while IMPACT has to do with the lasting influence you have in the Earth. Mega Gifts are PIONEERS, TREND SETTERS, and TRAILBLAZERS. They do NOT desire platforms, they CREATE platforms. Mega GIfts are leaders among leaders, and pastors among pastors. Impact is the measure of ones IMPRINT, which is caused by ones INFLUENCE, on the Present and the Future. Every finger on a Human Being has a distinct print, known as a “fingerprint”. When a finger or hand applies PRESSURE it causes an IMPRINT, within that IMPRINT is the DNA or distinct identity of that person. MEGA GIFTS are people of identity, and their IDENTITY affects generations yet to come.
God is raising MEGA GIFTS to shift the climate of ideas and the quality of ministry for the 21st Century. As they arise, let us increase our capacity and create a space for them in our midst so that our value will increase and our “world” transformed. MEGA is now an operative word in Kingdom Transformation, for the Church nor the World can see significant change without it. Within this study there is also the subject of: Mega Houses, Mega Grace, Mega Mantles, Mega Cities, Mega Ideas and Concepts and so much more.

The Dynamics of Regional Princes

The Dynamics of Regional Princes: Understanding the Angelic Economy of Your Region

When God created Adam, Adam had perfect vision. His vision extended from this 3 dimensional plane of existence into a world of supernatural beings. Like Jacob in Genesis 28, Adam could simply look up and see a host of angels functioning in their particular assignment. It was this apostolic insight that gave Adam an advantage over all the systems of the Earth in his day (fowls of the air, beasts of the field, and the fish of the sea).

Apostles are given RANK and METRONIC (operating in a specific measure of rule) ability according to the PRINCES in their REGION. Apostles are actually established to match, RANK for RANK, demonic powers and perverse princes. This is why apostles are commissioned and SENT OUT (Matt. 10:1-8).. they are in their very nature ambassadorial and representative. Apostles do not just represent their SENDER, but the place in which they have been SENT FROM and SENT TO. Their POWER BASE comes from the place of their ORIGIN. The Kingdom of Heaven is a vast place, and if an Apostle has been sent from Heaven, all of Heaven’s resources are at his disposal. This principle is also used in the Kingdom of Darkness. There are those that have been set in our city with a tremendous anointing from the Demonic World.. our job as Apostles is to SPY OUT (Num. 13) the land and see what hinders our ADVANCEMENT.

Jesus, our Apostle and High Priest (Heb. 3:1) understood his position and access to angelic activity and assistance.

Matt. 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

A legion was 6000 roman soldiers. 6000 multiplied by 12 is 72,000 angels at his command. This was the metron of Angelic power that the Messiah walked in. Every Apostle, as he/she increases metronically, also increases in angelic strength.

What is your RANK? Rank is NOT determined by your theological degree. It is NOT determined by the size of your church, or how many books your have written. It has everything to do with your level of FAITHFULNESS, PURITY, and MEASURE of RULE.

GUARDS OVER CITIES

We must as apostles and as apostolic houses understand the Angelic economy over our regions.

Dan. 10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Greciashall come.

This scripture shows us clearly that there are high ranking angelic beings given rulership over nations and regions. These being are called PRINCIPALITIES or PRINCES, because they rule by PRINCIPLES. Principalities actually release PRINCIPLES over regions and people groups, and as these principles are promulgated and established, it becomes trends, and when those trends are sustained, it becomes strongholds of culture.

Let’s look at how this works: ANGELS SQUAT OVER REGIONS

Principalities that are given custodianship over regions, literally SQUAT over these areas. We see this is Gen. 1.

Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Gen. 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  The word “moved” is “rachaph”- it means to brood, to incubate, to sit on the earth as a hen sits on her egg. God literally SQUATTED over the Earth and began to give BIRTH. When Angelic Princes squat over a region, they begin to labor to produce and birth the destiny of that region. When Demonic Princes squat over a region, they actually release FILTH over that place. Squatting is an Apostolic Function. You see this in the ANIMAL KINGDOM. Animals such as lions and other large animals will enter a new territory and squat over that place. They will urinate or defecate there as a sign that “this is my territory”.

Apostles are suppose to claim the rights of cities and regions. It is sad when “apostles” move into a city or region and the demonic powers don’t even take notice of him/her. We must move with such RANK, that all the cohorts of Hell begin to strategize our demise when they feel us coming.

When an Apostolic Gift comes to a region, he/she brings an horde of angelic power with him. Let’s look at this in a systematic way:

You have a city like Detroit. Unemployment, Murder, Sex Trafficking, and Drugs have raped the city. These Demonic Princes have squatted over that land and released that FILTH. So God raises up an APOSTOLIC GIFT. When that gift come to town, he brings with him:

The Spirit of Invention to battle Unemployment. This raises Entrepreneurs.

The Spirit of Peace to combat Murder. This manifest in proactive children education programs, prison ministry, and the unification of churches to bring an atmosphere and image of peace in the city.

The Spirit of Holiness to war against Illicit Sexual Activity (I.S.A. which must be dealt with even in the Church). This comes through the establishing of a standard among individuals first, then homes, churches and businesses.

The Spirit of MIRACLES, SIGNS and WONDERS to battles addiction to DRUGs and DRUG TRADE. The only thing that can break the power of a depressant or a hallucinogenic is the POWER of GOD.

Angels are the GUARDIANS of GATES:

Rev. 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

Now when this Apostolic GIFT comes with these angelic forces.. the RANK PRINCE will send those angels through CUSTOMS and if they are bringing a message that is against the gospel that is being preached by the RANK MEMBER of the Demonic host that has squatted over that region, they have to stay at the door of the city. THEY CAN’T GET IN.

Why is this? Because many times the Demonic Prince have LEGAL RIGHTS to our cities. Here in Atlanta.. the Spirit of Religion has legal rights. Religion is what got the slaves through the harsh seasons of slavery, sharecropping and Jim Crow.. so the spirit of Religion has staked his claim on our CITY… but the devil is a LIAR.. the KINGDOM IS HERE NOW.. and we ain’t (I know its bad English) going nowhere!!!

We have to remember that our God, is a LEGAL God. Now He is NOT legalistic, but He is the Righteous Judge (2 Tim 4:8). This means that He operates based on law and precedent. When a Demon has legal right, we must root out that legality. Many times in our regions, blood altars, covenants and contracts have been made on land that we are trying to prime for the Glory of God. We wonder why we preach to no avail, heal people, but the city is still sick and dying.. there is a legal issue that we are overlooking, and this must be dealt with.

Altars are established through sacrificing, which is murder, child abduction and violence.  Wherever the shedding of blood is, there are altars. These altars are given tremendous strength by sexual activity. Illicit Sexual Behavior acts as a catalyst and engine for these false altars. This is a system of demonic worship.

ANGELS gained POWER by PREACHING, PROPHESY, and INTERCESSION

As Apostolic Gifts preach, angels actual begin to grow in strength and influence.

Psa. 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

The voice of HIS word activates them and gives them the power to knock down doors. As apostolic gifts, we must travel in revelation, to centuries in the past to get a correct diagnostic of our city and what it needs. As APOSTOLIC GIFTS, we don’t just heal PEOPLE, we are commissioned to HEAL CITIES.. We don’t just RAISE people from the DEAD, we RAISE NATIONS and DREAMS..  We must be aligned with the Will of God for our region and stand SHOULDER to SHOULDER with the Angelic Forces called alongside us to help. What is the Angelic Economy of your Region? What Demonic Princes are Squatting in your City? What is God trying to birth in your Territory? These are simple questions that will revolutionize our Houses, our Ministries and our Leaders. Last thing, Angels do NOT talk Church.. they speak Kingdom (1 Cor. 13:1).. if we are going to partner with these beings, we must have a clear understanding of who they are and who Jesus is. Jesus is the Captain of Heavens Armies. Angels are NOT to be worshipped or exalted. You are over them. You command them. They are your servants, sent to help you..

We are establishing a CITY CHURCH here in Atlanta.. yesterday (2.13.2011) we had one of the most amazing meetings I have ever been in. During the POWER PRAYER portion of our meeting, I began to groan and wail in the spirit. And then I began to declare, “WE ARE NOT FOR SALE”.. Whenever you begin to pioneer an Apostolic Work, the Demonic Princes of that Region will literally try to BUY YOU OUT.. they will try to get you to align with their VISION for the City.. but we declare.. WE ARE NOT FOR SALE..

This was meant to be a brief overview on the subject, REGIONAL PRINCES. There is MUCH MORE we could say on the topic of the Economy of Angels, TOPICS INCLUDE:

The Speed of Angels

The Language of Angels

Offended Angels

The Food of Angels

Apostles and Angelic Rank

Apostles and Angelic Companies

Apostolic Engagement

Apostles and Angelic Might
