New York City,
New York, and the Northeast: Todd Bentley and Matt Sorger Prophesy on the "THE
BREAKER ANOINTING and the ANGEL OF FINANCE"
by Matt Sorger and Todd Bentley
APRIL 7-9, 2005
This year's Northeast Prophetic Signs and Wonders
Conference hosted by Matt Sorger Ministries was a strategic gathering, releasing
not only healing and miracles in the lives of many, but also a fresh prophetic
revelation for the church in this hour. From the first night there was a
complete open heaven. Many testified to an unusual awareness of God's presence.
Several key prophetic words and teachings were delivered by Matt Sorger and Todd
Bentley. The power of the Lord was truly present to heal. Several also received
deep deliverance from demonic bondage.
One missionary from Bulgaria
commented that she had not felt such a strong presence of the Lord since she had
been up to the revival in Toronto, Canada. Many shared a similar sentiment,
being captured by the spirit of revival that was poured out in the meetings.
Another woman testified, "For years we have been prophesying that a â€˜new thing'
is coming. Well it's here! This is it! This is what we have been waiting for!"
There was such a clean, fresh sense of God's presence that brought a deep change
in the lives of those present at the gathering. It marked an important prophetic
shift for the northeast of America. We have received an invitation from the Lord
to enter into a new season of visitation and power.
There were believers gathered from all throughout the northeast and beyond
including: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Texas, Missouri, Denmark and India! God truly
opened up a "gateway to heaven," releasing an extreme amount of supernatural
activity. Thursday night Matt sensed the anointing for healing and released a
corporate healing wave over the people. Several words of knowledge were called
out including a grace for the healing of tumors. Many responded receiving
healing in their bodies. Hands were waving all over the room as people testified
to receiving a healing touch from God.
There were several prophetic words and teachings shared by Matt and Todd
throughout the weekend. We will highlight them for you in this article so that
you, too, can receive the word of the Lord that came forth.
REVIVAL OF THE FULL GOSPEL
Thursday night Matt Sorger delivered a prophetic word and message on The Lost
Art of Tarrying. He shared how God was speaking to him about returning to the
place of visitation and waiting on the Lord. He prophesied that the prophetic
timetable for Long Island, New York, and the Northeast has come full circle. God
is again offering this region an invitation to enter into an outpouring of the
Spirit that will bring with it not only an outpouring of miracles, but also a
restoration of the full gospel. This word is also for the corporate Body of
Christ in America and beyond. The revival that we are entering into is not
limited to just a healing revival. But this revival will be marked with a
restoration of the full gospel, including the preaching and teaching of the word
of the Lord, healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead.
We will see a restoration of the
full work of Christ on the earth, birthed out of a lifestyle of intimacy and
holiness with Him. This revival will be a combination of all the past revivals
of history. It will include healing, miracles, deliverance, the prophetic, joy
and faith, accompanied by an extreme awareness of His manifest presence. Not
only will the church be restored, but she will be commissioned in great power
for the end time harvest of the nations.
THE KEY TO THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE
& THE POWER OF THE AGE TO COME
Matt also prophesied that the Keys of the Kingdom are being released. These keys
include revival, salvation, healing and deliverance, along with many others. God
will give us what we need, when we need it. When there is a need for healing,
God will give us the key for healing. When there is a need for deliverance, God
will give us the key for deliverance. When there is a need for salvation, God
will give us a key for salvation. They are the keys of the Full Gospel: what we
need, when we need it. Matt shared the secret to receiving these keys of power.
The power of the Kingdom is
available to everyone, but with a price not everyone is willing to pay. Matt
taught and prophesied about the restoration of the lost art of tarrying and
waiting on God. He shared how his own ministry was birthed out of waiting on
God. He ministered from Mt. 13 on the Pearl of Great Price, the hidden power of
the Kingdom. He taught on how to enter into the power of the Age to Come and the
price of sacrificing everything of self to possess it. God is calling the church
back into a place of waiting on Him. This is not a passive waiting, but an
active waiting. It is a tarrying in His presence until the endowment of power
A REVIVAL OF TARRYING RELEASING A BREAKER ANOINTING FOR THE MASSES
With a revival of tarrying will come a breaker anointing that will usher the
rest of the Body of Christ into a season of outpouring and power. Many will reap
the fruit of the labors of the remnant. This principle is seen in the Book of
Acts with the first initial outpouring of the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost
(Acts 1:4-8, 14; Acts 2), as well as in every subsequent outpouring of the
Spirit in the Bible and in history. The remnant tarries before God in holy
desperation until The Day of Outpouring comes ushering the church into a fresh
season of visitation and power.
We must take a hard look at our present Pentecostal movement and what we call
"The Baptism of the Holy Spirit." Sure, many of us can speak in tongues, but is
our shadow dangerous? Are we healing the sick, casting out demons and raising
the dead? Where is the true endowment of power that comes with the Baptism of
the Spirit? God is calling the Church into a season of tarrying because a new
day of outpouring is upon us. Without the tarrying corporately and individually,
we cannot enter into the higher level of power God is offering us.
Matt prophesied that we will begin
to see spontaneous "tarrying meetings." In these meetings it won't be about who
the speaker is or who is leading worship. These meetings will be marked by a
holy desperation along with a waiting on God in worship. The formalities of a
"structured church service and prayer meeting as we know it" will be put to the
side as our only agenda will be to wait on the Lord and receive His power. It
won't be about binding this principality and that power or crying out to God for
Him to come. The church has been crying out for years. Now it's time to gather
and wait for the Promise to come in true fullness.
GOD IS CALLING US TO A RENEWED
DEEPER BAPTISM OF THE SPIRIT THAT IS MARKED WITH TRUE POWER
It's not about receiving the Baptism of the Spirit as we know it now. Anyone by
faith can enter into the Baptism of the Spirit at its present level of power
simply by asking and receiving. No tarrying is needed for that. But what God is
calling us to now is radically different. He's calling us to a renewed deeper
baptism that will be marked by true power and authority. As we wait and our
spirits engage the Lord on a deeper level, we will receive this power of the
Spirit. This will be true for corporate local churches as well as individuals.
From this place many new ministries of power will be birthed. If we will catch
God's heart in this we will be positioned for the greatest endowment of power
the church has ever seen.
During the first night of the conference, Matt saw a "portal" open in the
Spirit. A portal is a place of visitation with God where there is an open
heaven. It is a place of great spiritual encounter with God's presence and
voice. Then Friday morning Todd Bentley continued along this theme teaching on
gates, doors and portals and entering into this place of visitation with God.
A NEW JESUS MOVEMENT ANOINTING IS
BEING RELEASED ON A NEW BREED OF "DREAD CHAMPIONS"
Friday afternoon must be documented as one of the most unusual services we have
ever been a part of. As we worshipped, God's presence overwhelmed the hundreds
of people gathered. The worship leader, Kristie Levesque, was knocked to the
floor while leading worship unable to stand under the weight of His glory. Matt
was overcome with an anointing that was similar to that of Lonnie Frisbie back
in the Jesus Movement. Lonnie was used by God in radical ways with the power of
As this "fierce" anointing moved
upon Matt, he jumped up on the chairs and began to release a corporate wind and
wave of the Spirit over the people. Simultaneously over half of the conference
room fell under the power of God as a wave of extreme Glory went over them. A
scroll of fire was released as God commanded us to "eat" the word of the Lord.
Matt's eyes were then opened to the spirit realm. He wept as he shared how he
could see the angels swirling over our heads and a chariot of fire leading the
host of heaven. He began to prophesy that "there were more for us than against
us!" He could see the angels being sent on assignment, even for family members
not present in the meeting.
During this service Matt also taught an incredible message on Establishing the
Place of Visitation and Guarding the Place of Habitation. He gave some great
practical keys to entering into visitations with the Lord and how to guard and
keep the habitation of God in your life.
Friday, Todd was overcome by the Spirit and began to prophesy for this region.
Below is a transcription of this strategic prophetic "now" word of the Lord.
It's lengthy, but I encourage you to read through it.
NEW MINISTRIES BEING BIRTHED - THE OLD AND THE NEW TOGETHER
We thank you God that you're giving birth, that you're making room for new
ministries to be birthed in this place. The new and the old together. The new
and the old together. The new and the old together. You're making room. You're
enlarging the place of this tent. And the tent peg is being established. Roots
are being put down. Foundations are being laid. I thank you for what you're
doing in this place. I thank you for the reverb, for the shocks, the
aftershocks, O God, that are hitting different areas in New York, right up into
New Jersey, right up into other places here in the East. O God, in the name of
Jesus, you're raising up a true team of young men and women -- ministries -- eagles,
eagles, eagles, eagles in this place. I see a nest and I see eagles, young
eagles, new ministries in this place gathering in the midst of what God's doing.
God is making room, both for the old and for the new, both for the old and for
We release a breaker anointing in this place and we call forth ministries that
haven't been born. Ministries that haven't been born can be born in this place;
can be born in this meeting right now. Those of you who have been pregnant in
Spirit are giving birth right now. Those of you that have prayed as intercessors
for more than twenty years can give birth to something today. You are giving
birth to something in this conference. Ministries that haven't been born, some
that won't even be born for twenty years, some that won't even be born for forty
years -- but you'll hear of them -- even ones in this room in twenty years will hear
of ministries born in this place. And there are some already. God is bringing
publicity, promotion to them in the Spirit. We release that, O God, and we call
forth the eagles; not just in this place, not just on Long Island, but, God,
throughout this area, in the East.
Here in the East Coast, O God,
there is an emerging army of young men and women. You're giving a name to them,
O God, a Joel's Army that you're raising up in this place. Here in the East, O
God, ministries that we don't know that are being born. Yes, they are ministries
already, but they're about to become publicly known, in Jesus' name. That's the
kind of anointing that's in this meeting. That's the kind of anointing that's in
this place. That's the kind of anointing that's in this conference. The things
that are in your heart, dreams and visions that are in your heart, and you've
prayed -- leaders -- different ones that are in this place -- pastors -- different ones that
are in this place -- and dreams -- things that you've had in your heart, they're about
to be born. I'm saying, come forth, O visions; come forth, O dreams; come forth,
O visions; come forth, O dreams. God, let the eagles be released, let the eagles
rise. Let the eaglets be born. Let the eagles see. Let the eagles that have been
tethered down, let them be released. Let them be released. Let the Son of
Righteousness rise with healing in His wings.
AN APOSTOLIC MINISTRY
God, I prophesy an apostolic ministry in this place. I prophesy an apostolic
ministry in this region. I say there's room; yes, for the old, but let's give
room for the new. We break it open in the Spirit for the new thing, for the new
thing, for the new thing.
See, Matt and his ministry have been in God's heart for years, but it's just
been born. Even in the last three years or so, it's been born. And more and more
it's becoming public. It's becoming known. But he's the first of many in this
area, the first of many in this region -- sons and daughters that haven't been born
yet -- generals.
A WHOLE NEW BREED ABOUT TO BE PROMOTED
You see, with the passing of the Pope, with the passing of other ministries in
the last twelve months or so, and others that are going to pass in the next
twelve months, makes room for a whole new breed to step up in promotion. I want
you to get ready for that. So, that's the anointing. And, maybe there are hidden
gems, hidden treasures of wisdom and revelation in this meeting right now.
You've been a hidden piece. A hidden piece in prayer, a hidden piece in
business, a hidden piece in healing -- but God's going to throw you out and catch
you to the nations. 'Cause there's a wind blowing and it's going to pick up the
wings. Yeah, some of you are going to fly again. It's been five years, it's been
ten years, you're going to fly again. God's restoring you. He's healing wounded
warriors. Some of you need that word -- that you're saying, "I want to fly again, I
need healing, I laid it all down, I was taken out." Whatever it was that you
went through in your circumstances, God wants to raise you up again. He wants to
give vision to you again. He wants to visit you again.
THE SWORD OF THE LORD
For ten minutes I've been in visions of God. It was so profound that at one
point I saw an angelic being come into the room. I'll tell you about that in a
minute. And then there was placed in my hands, right across my arms, right
across my lap, there was placed a sword. And this sword is wrapped in a purple
garment. It's a gift from the King of Royalty. It is the sword of the Lord and
it was placed in my hand. It's about a foot wide and it was about five feet in
length. It is so heavy that my arms are literally straining to hold this. It's
as if I have fifty pounds in my arms. I feel weight. In fact, every muscle in my
arms were tense as if I was lifting weights. My bicep, everything is tense. And
in my arm is this sword; I'm supposed to give it to somebody tonight. God is
wanting to place this on people tonight. There may be several people that
receive the sword of the Lord; and yes, it's power for preaching. It's a
revelatory preaching gift in which God's word will be like fire in your mouth.
In which when you preach, there'll be power in the word to destroy strongholds
and (bring) healing. It's an anointing like Charles Finney possessed; in that
when he preached, it brought a Spirit of Revival in the preaching; in which John
Edwards, Evan Roberts possessed. And there was such a mantle of God's Spirit
that when they preached, there was literal revival. It was as if their tongues
kindled fire. It was as if their words caused men to fall down dead in their
seats, with the convicting power of the Holy Spirit.
Do you remember as you've read about what happened in revivals of old, as you
look at history and how God spoke? And you read stories of how whole cities,
nations and regions were shaken under the power that was in the spoken word. And
there was such conviction that men and women dropped as if they were dead in
SEEDS OF DESTINY AND REVIVAL LIKE THAT OF CHARLES FINNEY
And there was one revival in which I'm prophesying tonight because it became
very clear to me in the Spirit that what God did in upstate New York with
Charles Finney, there was a revival that those same seeds of destiny reside on
Long Island. And those same seeds of destiny reside within New York City -- the
very seeds in which God scattered in the days of Charles Finney's revival in
upstate New York. And that very power that resided upon that man, that great
revivalist who even preached in these areas, there is an anointing that again
God is breathing upon; I saw it again on Long Island.
THE SWORD OF THE LORD IS COMING
Lord, just release that sword tonight. I feel it releasing now. The sword of the
Lord is coming into this place. I want you to ask for it. On one side is your
conviction and judgment; on one side, the sword could cut you down. On the other
side is a sword that brings conviction to men and women as the truth of the
gospel is proclaimed. It's a two-edged sword. It's a sharp sword. It could
destroy you. It could judge you. It could slay you, or it can (cut) against
wickedness, against sickness, against disease. It could bring the truth of the
gospel in power and in conviction to destroy strongholds. It's a two-edged
sword. Be careful how you handle and receive the sword. Let it judge you:
"Holiness in my life, Lord. Righteousness in my life, Lord. Truth in my life,
Lord. Integrity in my life, Lord." And let me use it because I want to preach
the word. And I want to do it in power and conviction. I want to do it
uncompromising. I want to do it in truth. The word in your mouth is only as
powerful as the word that's in your heart. The word in your mouth is only as
powerful as the word that you live by.
God is placing this sword upon men and women. It's a preacher's anointing. It's
a revival mantle. It's got power and conviction and authority in it. Some of you
are going to go forth to kings and presidents and leaders with that word. It's
not just a preaching word. It's a prophetic word as God anoints and raises up
Who's going to be a voice? There may be one or two, but God's anointing someone
in this room with real fire, with real fire, with real prophetic fire. Not just
to prophesy about people's future and destiny, but to proclaim a word like John
the Baptist, and stand before kings and leaders and presidents and say, "This is
the word of the Lord." A Spirit of Elijah!
THE SWORD OF JUDGMENT
I'm seeing in the Spirit that even right to the doors of the church God's sword
will come and He will cut away and reveal what they really are. There is a part
of judgment coming in this area. And it's God's sword cutting away everything
that is false. God will expose men in sin. He will cut away what they've been
hiding. They say, "They don't see me, nobody knows." God's about to cut away
that curtain and everyone's going to see you as you really are. He'll cut away
what we're hiding behind. It's time for holiness. If we would say, "God judge
me," we wouldn't have to face judgment.
God, raise up an army of men and women that are pure in heart and can wield this
sword. They can, and can preach the word in true power because they live by the
sword. They live by the word. They don't just have a message, they are the
A GOLDEN SPRING RAIN AND THE SEEDS OF REVIVAL
And in the Spirit I saw golden rain. And then I saw the hand of the Lord
scatter. And I thought of the parable of the sower. The sower went out to sow. .
. the preacher. The seed is the message. And I saw the Lord scattering seeds all
over Long Island, just reaching in the basket and throwing out seed, from one
end of Long Island to the other end. And I said, "God, you're scattering seeds."
He said, "Because the ground is ready." Before you can sow the seed, you need to
break up the fallow ground. The ground needs to be prepared before the seed
could come. I said, "Lord, what is it?" And, He said, "It's the seed of
And immediately I saw Charles Finney and a great revival in upstate New York.
And the Lord said, "Todd, there'll be a revival in this place, in this region,
in which thousands will come. And the meetings won't be over after four days.
They'll say, â€˜let's keep going. We can't stop. Let's not shut it down. Let's
keep the doors open.'"
AN EXTENDED MOVE OF REVIVAL IS COMING
And they'll be coming. They'll be coming by the thousands, even from around the
world because God will be doing something in this place. And it'll go on for an
extended period of time. And, even that won't be the revival. Even that won't be
the fullness. But God was scattering the seeds, the seeds of revival. And then
the golden rain came and gave life.
See, the spring rain -- it's new life, it's new growth. It's the rain that comes,
not for sowing, but for harvest. The latter rain is the planting seed. The
spring rain is the harvest seed.
THE BREAKER ANOINTING
And I saw this ocean and there was a glacier in this ocean, a large glacier. I
thought I was in Alaska. And then I saw this boat with a sharp point in its
bow -- this massive boat. I didn't know what it was at first because I just saw the
bow. But it came and it broke open the ice. It made a way where there was no
way. The boat just pushed through and it broke open the ice. And then I noticed
on the side of the boat was the word, BREAKER. I said it's the breaker
anointing. And then I noticed it wasn't a boat, it was a battleship. And the
guns were firing. And I could hear in my Spirit "fight the good fight." There
was this war in my Spirit. And the boat was coming into this region -- it's Long
Island. The breaker anointing is coming in and it's breaking open -- and do you
know what the ice is? It's the hearts of men and women that have been cold. The
hearts of men and women that haven't really been warmed to the gospel -- the
receptivity, the climate. And there was a battle in it -- fight, fight -- and the guns
And the Lord spoke to me about Matt and his ministry. And He said, "Matt is
receiving this breaker anointing in which things are beginning to break open
that have never been opened. And hearts are beginning to be warmed." You know,
there's a change in Alaska in the climate and glaciers are now melting. See,
there have been things that have been frozen over here. And do you know what
hearts need? They need to be turned to the lamp of their first love because
their hearts have been cold like ice.
I see in the Spirit realm that things are warming up and ice is beginning to
melt from the hearts. The ice is beginning to melt from the minds of these
people and God's releasing a breaker anointing. And it's coming into Long
Island. And it's getting things ready for what God's about to do. And the seeds
of revival are being scattered. And the golden rain of heaven is coming down.
And God is giving life.
THE OLD FOUNDATION IS BETTER-THE
STONES SAY "FINNEY REVIVAL"
In fact, I see God uncovering a foundation that (since) about twenty years (ago)
there's been a change in the church. And I see this foundation built on top of
another foundation. The old foundation is better. God wants to break down the
foundation that exists of what we call the church today on Long Island and get
back to something that happened in the last twenty years in which God moved in
some way -- I have no idea of what the history is -- but there was something and God
is breaking it down to that foundation. He's saying, "I like that one better."
And I know there's another foundation in there in which the stones say, "Finney
revival." The kind of revival that I gave in the days of Finney. I'm releasing
those building blocks. I'm releasing those building stones back not only into
Long Island but back into New York. And God we say, "Let those stones come -- those
true building stones of revival." Rebuild the foundations with the same building
stones of revival, just like as in the days of Charles Finney.
THE RELEASE OF THE ANGEL OF FINANCE
Two years ago, I was in Albany, Oregon, and I saw with my eyes open, an angelic
being appear in my hotel room -- just stood right there in the bathroom door. And
it was bent over and I saw the back of the angel. And it looked to me like an
eagle. I mean, I saw the feathers, the skin. And imbedded into this angel's back
and right into the wings of this angel -- his body was covered -- I thought it was a
living creature, like the seraphim that cover themselves with their wings, the
six wings. They say, "Holy," and they cover themselves. This angel covered
himself. I thought for a moment that it was a seraphim or a cherubim, like
Ezekiel or John saw. I thought, my God, the living creatures are visiting me in
my hotel room. I'm seeing what John saw, I'm seeing what Ezekiel saw. And it
wasn't a living creature at all because it had the face of a human being, the
chest of a human being, the arms of a human being.
But these wings, these eagle wings, in which it would cover its body and the
entire wings, including the back of this creature-man, were embedded with
jewels -- emeralds, diamonds, pearls, rubies, gold -- it was a part of its skin.
And tonight, I looked over into the corner for one moment and I saw that angel
walk into the room -- the same angel!
I saw his face again tonight. He's old, but he looks about 17. That's how young
his face is. And he has the body of a man and walks like a man; but at times
will begin to move his wings and his entire body will be covered with these
wings in the front. You won't see his body; all you'll see is wings. You won't
really even see wings; you'll see treasures.
And then when you see his back when he's bent over -- it's just diamonds and rubies
and pearls -- right into the back of this angel.
When I saw him walk into the room tonight, the Lord said, "This is the Angel of
Finance." Mark my words. When the Angel of Finance comes, unusual financial
breakthroughs start taking place around you -- in your business, money
cometh -- things begin to break: land sales, houses given, investments come
through. Just at his presence, promotion -- financially -- takes place. Jobs change
I said, "God, why is the angel here tonight?" He said, "Tell Matt that I'm
bringing the angel into Matt's ministry." In fact, he's called the Angel of
Finance because he's the one who administrates, stewards and handles money for
I believe there's an anointing in the room tonight. If there's an anointing for
healing, glory, prophecy, why isn't there an anointing for prosperity? The Bible
says God gave them power to get wealth. The blessing of the Lord maketh one
I just want to say this as a prophetic word: things in your life -- financial,
church and ministry -- are about to change and accelerate because the Angel of
Finance is here.
I'm telling you right now -- God is my witness -- when the angel came into the room my
eyes changed. I almost started weeping. It was so real. I saw the angel as clear
as you can see me walk into the room. I almost walked right over and touched it.
That's how real it was. I had to look back three, four times because it was so
real. And he wasn't doing anything, he was just there. God said, "This is my
Angel of Finance and I trust him with the resource in heaven and he distributes
it as ministries have need."
In fact, this angel has authority in heaven to write off ten million dollars to
those that God can trust. This angel has that kind of authority to steward and
handle money. Lord, release it tonight on Long Island. Kingdom resource, kingdom
wealth . . . release it in this room."
