Our September NewsletterHappy September, Happy New Year for our Jewish friends and their families, and Happy Fall! Too soon? We know the kids aren't excited about going back to school, but September is really about going back - - so we can go further ahead.
A special note: The Holy Spirit has given several prophetic messages that have been confirmed. Confirmed messages from 2017 - 2018 are in our latest book, Pray It By Ear, while the prophetic messages for September 2018 are included here in Our September Prayer. We started keeping track. As the Holy Spirit was speaking we knew what to pray for and that God for the Holy Spirit's guidance.
A big theme for September is "Don't Walk Away", "Have No Fear", and "God Will Help Us". God is shifting the atmosphere and while it might not look like it's working in your favor, au contrare, mon ami, it is indeed!

The Table is Set For You...
It's back to work and back to school. September always starts as a time when we slowly make our way back into the daily hustle and bustle that it can also mean back to the stresses of life - especially if you took time off over the summer. But sometimes in heading back, it helps to look back so we can move forward.
A Seat at the Table
There's a cool rags to riches story about a man named Mephibosheth in the Bible. He was given an invitation to this really big dinner party by King David, but didn't want to go. You see, as a child, he was dropped and had to live with a limp from the age of five. He was also the last heir in Saul's line and Saul was enemies with David but had already died. Mephibosheth thought surely because he was the last living relative to Saul that it meant David wanted to kill him, but he begrudgingly went, not wanting to refuse the king. To Mephibosheth's surprise, David wanted to honor him. David was looking for someone to bless and the only person left in the family was Mephibosheth who got to eat at the king's table.
So often in life, we think that we're not good enough, smart enough, or in the right family. We see people who are doing better and think "Must be nice". We forget that God has special plans for us and that we're royalty, too. That's what happened to me.
Watch What God Does
At my old investment bank job, I had a bunch of enemies that all called out sick and left me to do their work. It was a sabotaging attack meant to make me fail. The strange thing was, it didn't work out that way (what the devil means for harm God works in our favor). I received help from other coworkers and the funniest thing happened.
It was just before a long weekend, and after everyone had left the office I went into the kitchen. To my surprise, there were plates of desserts, unopened lunches, cakes, cookies, and all kinds of goodies - enough food for a week. Apparently, the meetings all let out early and no one had eaten - it was all untouched food. There must have been 20 or 30 sandwiches, dozens of cookies, and so forth. For a quick second I thought, "I can't eat all this," and then I realized what was happening. It was Father God showing me how His hand was in everything and He was letting me be a light for others. I was able to share with the housekeeping staff from other floors in the building, the doormen and guards, a church nearby, and I left food for the homeless - even then, there was still food left over.
God Will Not Fail You
We're in a season where the devil has been showing off and making it look like "it will always be this way," but God doesn't like a proud look. That's why we keep stressing, only walk in love, healing, and forgiveness. In these last days, and hear me clearly, God will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you, but to receive from Father God and be used by Him, you can't have any false pride, bitterness, anger or resentment - whoever it is and whatever they did, just forget them, let that thing go, and walk away so you can be used by God and receive your blessings. Stay in God's secret place and He can help you.
When the Holy Spirit said to make September's message "The Table is Set For You" I started praising God because I understood that it means God is about to reverse some things in your life and it's time to get happy. The Holy Spirit is saying "God is preparing a table for you," meaning the table the enemy thinks is theirs is really for you. Don't be sad or give up because the devil is trying to make it look like he's won. No, he has not. On the contrary, we win. The table is for us and God is going to send evidence. He will not fail you. Just ask for His mercy.
We're in the end times and God is not playing. We have to get rapture-ready and get the Church on one accord.
We're starting the Jewish New Year and it's like we're getting blessed out of season:
Remember, in our January Newsletter, the Holy Spirit said we would be shouting "Victory!" this year. Whatever it is God's about to do, know that He can turn things around overnight. For it is written, "The wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just, (Proverbs 13:22b)" That thing the devil's been doing, trying to make it look like he won and we would always be suffering, nope. We win and I know God is going to send us proof very soon so stay encouraged and don't walk away - even if it looks like it's suddenly getting worse. Keep reading your Bible.
Have you heard You Say by Lauren Daigle? It's such an inspiring song. Lyrics include, "You say I am loved when I can't feel a thing. You say I am strong when I am feeling weak." Thank you, Lord, for loving us and speaking into our lives - Forever Your Word is established.
God is Speaking
Were you or someone you know praying for a specific answer from God? Or has your church been praying to hear from God? He gave this very specific message and said He's going to reveal Himself in the Spirit of Tongues. He keeps saying, "He's revealing Himself to us and is going to send us proof. The revelation is on the way."
I was working on an excerpt from our book, Pray It By Ear as the Holy Spirit said we were missing a Prayer for Wisdom. As I began to close out the chapter, the Holy Spirit kept saying, "The evidence is coming. The evidence is coming," and I suddenly got caught up in the Spirit of Tongues for almost an hour. I was then able to interpret what I heard from the Holy Spirit and in obedience, I am including it here.
I pray you share this message with every Christian you know and every pastor, deacon, church leader, and prayer warrior because God is calling us to our assignments. It's the most powerful word I've heard from Father God and it includes that He wants us to stay encouraged, prepare for these last days, and keep reading the Bible. He wants us to know that the rapture and the mark of the beast are coming soon.
I pray this message adds insight into your Bible studies and that you stay encouraged and stand strong in the Lord. I don't believe it was a coincidence that Father God spoke this when He asked us to include a Prayer for Wisdom in our book as we know that James 1:5 reads, If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Our September Prayer...
Messages from the Holy Spirit: Keep reading your Bible, a huge earthquake is coming (Confirmed: Japan had an earthquake, 9/6/18). People have to prepare or their evacuation plans will fail (Confirmed: NC, SC, and other states didn't evacuate properly 9/13/18). A tornado is coming. (Confirmed: Virginia had a tornado 9/18/18) God is opening a door for us. Don't be afraid by what you see or hear. Jesus will be coming back soon (He said that twice). Keep reading your scriptures. Guard the words that come out of your mouth. Have faith. Renew vows. Have faith in me (God). Keep singing to me (God). Keep reading your Bible. Stay in my (God's) shadow.
Father God in the name of Jesus, Lord we praise You because you are Yeshua. You are the Most High God and you are worthy of our praise. Thank You for setting plans in place for us. Thank You for making the way and the hidden paths and plans You have for us. We know You will send help right away to North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and all those affected by Hurricane Florence. The Holy Spirit revealed the people were saying "Help us" and thank You that our help comes from You, Lord. We have an advocate in You and we call on You. I hear the Holy Spirit saying, "I want you to tell my people to never give up," and Lord we will stand strong and wait on You. The Holy Spirit also said to "Tell them to rebuke the demons and thoughts of suicide." Father God, we pray for renewing of the mind and for ministering angels for those who need it - - If you are experiencing these thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention number 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255 and know that you are not alone and we are praying for you.
We will keep reading our Bibles and stay encouraged. We know the money is coming and the help is coming. The devil wants us to say, "It's not fair," but we will guard our tongues and every word that comes out of our mouths and keep praising You because You will make the way. As Dr. Bill Winston said many were under attack, we know it's a major blessing that's coming and the attack is over and I hear the Holy Spirit saying to add, "And we won't run away". As Pastor Samuel Rodriguez spoke at the IFC Conference and said that you're going to turn what looks messy into a blessing and open our Spiritual eyes, we will wait on You, Lord. Bill Winston confirmed this when he said the enemy tried to blind us, but they will be blinded instead, so we know the way is already made and we have angels advocating for us and You, Father God, will not fail us. Father God, we also pray for all children back in school. Please bless and cover them. Protect them, bless and cover each teacher, the bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and provide for their needs, Father. We keep Puerto Rico in prayer. We pray for the 900+ people that were evicted from hotels. Please make the way for them to not lose their vision and purpose. Please allow FEMA to make extensions where they need it.
We pray for all the sick, elderly, and those struggling to make ends meet. We ask for Your mercy, Lord. We know You will not fail us. You are covering us and You will make the way. We hold fast to Your Word and praise You for victory, in Jesus's name, Amen!
Stay encouraged and keep preparing the Church for Jesus' return. Keep reading your Bibles. Our Help is on the way. Keep speaking in the Spirit of Tongues. We have to get the Body of Christ rapture-ready! God will not fail.
Aside from titles, anything in bold above is something the Holy Spirit mentioned to pray about.
The Prayer of Salvation
If you haven't said the Prayer of Salvation, now's the best time: Father God in the name of Jesus, Lord, I ask forgiveness of my sins. Please come into my heart. I turn my back on sin and I make you my Lord and Savior. I want to follow you for the rest of my life. Please give me eternal life through you in Jesus name, Amen.
Re-dedication to Christ Prayer
If you need to rededicate your life to Christ because you feel like you've been sinning or haven't been living right, pray: Father God in the name of Jesus, I ask forgiveness of my sins and I turn my back on sin. Please help me to overcome ---- and I want to lead a better life through you. I decree and declare this day I have overcome ---- and I have the victory in Jesus name, Amen.
Stay in God's shadow, stay away from sin and temptation, keep reading your Bible and keep seeking God first.
Be ye doers of the Word... We pray this message blesses you today!
If you need prayer, please call the Bill Winston Prayer Center at (877) 543-9443. You can also check online for Joyce Meyer's prayer request form and other sites that can pray for and with you. You are more than a conqueror!
Pray for Puerto Rico
Sing O Barren Woman (Your Blessings are Coming)
There's a strange story in the Bible. One that never made sense to me until I went through it. It's the story of Hannah and Peninnah. Hannah was fruitful and had 5 children, but Peninnah was barren. What's perplexing about this story is the Bible verse that reads, "Sing o barren woman, you who never bore a child for many are the children of the barren woman."
When we were preparing the "Pray for Puerto Rico" message, the Holy Spirit led us to this scripture about the afflicted, but it's the first part of the verse that is confusing. You see, it states to sing. But how can you sing when people have gone through great suffering. Just like Peninnah who was without children while Hannah laughed at her - How can the barren woman be told to sing? And be happy? It's because of God's mercy that's coming.
You see, when Peninnah was barren, it wasn't that God had closed her womb to make her suffer. He was setting the stage so that when she did bear a child and dedicated it to God, it would open her womb and she would then have several children after that.
Such an uplifting song! Watch Le'andria Johnson's version of Marvin Sapp's song, Never Would Have Made It. We serve a Mighty God who is with us every step of the way and oh how He cares for us. If you're in a tight space, know that it's not the end. We serve a Way Maker who will help you get through. Glory to your name, Lord!
Back to Basics
In our September message, the Holy Spirit wanted us to focus on how God is preparing a table for us, the steps it takes in the process, and how not to go by what you see.
Have you ever gone to a football game where it looked like the other team was winning? They had their game faces on and made taunts on the field. Even the cheerleaders were likely yelling, "Get back on the bus! We've already won!"
The problem is if you're not prepared mentally for the challenge, you can give up because of the enemy's psychological game. Which brings us to an important point about basic training and getting back to basics so you can get back in the game, get ahead, and win.
Have you ever attended a training camp in the spring for football? Or maybe attended a training camp in the winter for baseball? The goal is to help teach you new moves and work on drills to increase your speed, agility, and help you work with others on your team.
Need a Powerful Word?
The Bible teaches us that The entrance of Thy Words giveth light. At a time when the devil is trying to keep people blinded and in the dark, we've revamped our "Need a Word" page with powerful sermons including Bill Winston's full IFC Ministry Event (see below for the awesome lineup of guest speaker and singers.)
These are the full messages in their entirety so each one is about 4-hours long, but include all the speakers and singers. We pray it uplifts, inspires, and encourages you.
News: Hurricane Florence Victims Rally Together
Story shared courtesy ABC News: As the Southeast copes with Hurricane Florence and its aftermath, members of the community in cities across the region are coming together to support one another in their time of need. See how neighbors are helping neighbors put the pieces back together after the devastating storm.
Garner resident Shelli Tench said she felt the need to help out those displaced by Hurricane Florence. With $50 and a prayer in her pocket, she drove to the Walmart on NC-42 in Garner to buy some much-needed items for the shelter.
But store management went above and beyond, donating more than $1,000 of supplies to help those at the Garner Magnet High School shelter. Store manager Jeffrey Jobes even followed up the next day with another large donation of food to feed those in the shelter.
Prayer: Father God, we pray for all those affected by severe weather. We know we have an advocate in You. We thank you for answering our prayers as the storm was reduced from a Category 4 to a tropical storm. Please make the way for all those affected by Hurricane Florence and other storms to recover. We thank you and praise You for the victory. Restore them, Lord, in Jesus' name, Amen!
