"The Passion movie . . . determining a change in the course of Christianity in America"
By Chuck Pierce and Diane Fink

February 24, 2004
The Passion For The Harvest

Dear Passionate Intercessors:

I felt led to write concerning this week and The Passion of the Christ movie.

The Passion movie will be very significant in determining a change in the course of Christianity in America.

Cindy Jacobs spoke yesterday at Glory of Zion and said the following, "I get up each morning and ask the Lord, 'Where is my harvest today?'" This is a time that we are entering into a harvest season. Understanding the passion, suffering and love that Christ demonstrated for us on the cross causes us to have a heart for others. This is the passion that overcomes the strongman and unlocks the prison doors that he has held shut.

"Passion" is only used once in the King James Version in the Bible. Acts 1:3 says, "To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs ...." This concerns the ordeal related to the cross and the suffering He endured for our salvation and the redemptive plan that God has for each one of us. Passion is linked with intense, driving emotions that are beyond our cognitive reasoning and linked with our deep internal conviction. Passion is a state or capacity of being acted upon by external agents or forces.

We hear much about passion in the Body of Christ, but I think we have the reality of its understanding. Most of us complain about our sufferings rather than enduring them based upon our conviction that "if we endure till the end we will be saved".

It's time for passion to arise in the Body of Christ.

Diane Fink, a key leader at Aglow International, sent me the following:

"I saw movie theaters all over the nation with people sitting in them apprehended by what they were watching. God seemed to draw my attention to the place -- the buildings, the theaters themselves.

I prayed for a powerful anointing to draw people into those theaters -- agnostics, atheists, mockers, those who are just curious to see what all the controversy is about. Then I sensed that the theaters, the buildings, those places ("high places," if you will!) that the enemy has used to propagate his agenda against this nation through Hollywood, would be turned and filled with such an anointing and presence of God that the enemy's very own weapon would be turned against him.

Dealing the Death Blow

I thought of David and how after he slew Goliath, he took Goliath's own sword to cut off his head. The enemy has used Hollywood as a sword in his arsenal to cut away the moral fabric of this nation. He has wielded it to deal a death blow to the very truths and godly principles this country was founded on. Millions flock to theaters, even like the sheep the Lord compares us to, to worship at the altar of ungodly pleasure and hold up as gods those whose images are reflected back to us.

With the release of this film, however, I see God dealing a death blow to the enemy's strategy using his own sword. Theaters will be places where God's presence will be so thick, through not only the depiction on the screen but also the anointing on the film, that in the dark, quiet, intimacy of the theater (though the theater can be filled with people, there is still a private intimacy about sitting quietly watching a film), they will be confronted with the question: Who do YOU say that I am?"
In The Future War of the Church, you will find the following . . .

"This is a time of increase in God's Glory that will produce Harvest. When God's Glory manifests, Harvest is released... There is a mantle of increase and victory that the Lord is working to develop in His people. We have been like Gideon, threshing wheat in the winepress, but now is the time to move out and share our faith boldly with a world that is dying."

The Lord is about to release an urgency within us to liberate those who are held captive.

Pray this week for an outpouring of His Spirit in movie theaters. Declare this will begin to overflow and come into the sanctuary of God. God has raised up Mel Gibson like a Cyrus for such a time as this to cause the Body of Christ to return to an understanding of the cross.

Once we understand the cross, we will move into the power of His resurrection.

Restoring Your Shield of Faith
How the Seven Dimensions of Faith Can Help You Fight Life's Battles
By Chuck Pierce
(with Robert Heidler)
$14.99 Book

Sometimes it's a battle to stay strong in our faith. Satan's repeated attacks, using our own feelings of fear and doubt, can wear down our belief in the Lord's power and goodness. False visions of God's failure to keep His promises, news reports, and feelings of self-pity are all venues Satan uses to undermine the most important part of our lives here on earth: faith. In Restoring Your Shield of Faith, you will learn to be an overcomer, fighting and winning the daily battles against Satan's insidious objective. As your faith grows, doors of opportunity will swing open, asserting Christ's promise to His followers that through faith, nothing is impossible! Equipped with the four keys to building faith - familiarity with the Word of God, praise and thankfulness in all situations, trust in Him, and obedience to His leading - you'll be able to lift up your shield of faith and enter into the fullness of God's blessings!

For a limited time, when you order "Restoring Your Shield of Faith", we will include the audio cassette "Strength to Turn the Battle at the Gate" at
No C-HARGE to you!

"Strength to Turn the Battle at the Gate"
by Chuck Pierce

In intercession, you will reach a point where your battle is "at the gate". The fighting is the strongest and most intense, and the goal is in reach. At that very moment, the victory is in sight and you are ready for the final "push", but unfortunately it may also be the point where you are your weakest.... and you still have to climb over that wall! What do you do when you have nothing left to give?

In this featured cassette from the 4-tape series "Help Is on the Way", Chuck Pierce offers insight help to equip you with "reserves" to call upon when the fighting is the fiercest. You NEED these pearls of wisdom to achieve your victory.
