From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This is a great word from Paul Keith from Jerusalem. By the way, since there have been so many conversations about angels lately, check out Paul Keith Davis' book, Angels that Gather. Also, please look at and consider getting a hold of the joint conference led by Rick Joyner, Paul Keith, Bobby Conner and Bob Jones on the pivotal harvest-causing gathering on Honoring the Fathers. They are flying off the shelf!
"Special Bulletin from the Mount of Olives in Israel:
Messengers of His Face Are Coming From Heaven"
Wanda and I just returned from a truly significant conference in Israel conducted on the Mount of Olives. It was genuinely an extraordinary time and an incredible encounter with God's Spirit and the host of Heaven. There were 22 nations represented in the conference including the USA, Canada, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Iceland and many other nations.
Very strategic and pivotal messages were delivered by the various speakers including myself, Pastor Steven Shelley, Neville Johnson, Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj and Steven Brooks. Each message complemented those delivered by the other speakers in a tapestry that I believe truly captured God's heart for this present time.
Below is a summary transcript of my session done on the evening of June 9 as the Day of Pentecost was ending. Something truly tangible came into the service that was experienced by virtually everyone present. It is not because of any special gifting in my life but because of the timeliness of the message and the importance of the hour in which we presently live.
The proclamations and decrees that came at the end of the session were especially significant as they were going forth from an incredible atmosphere of the anointing filled with faith and expectation from the people.
I genuinely hope and pray the message is a blessing to you. Please keep in mind that it is a transcript of a spoken message and will have a little different flow from what we would normally write as articles or books.
It is our prayer that the Lord will make us, everyone, "messengers of His face."
With kindest regards and blessings,
Paul Keith and Wanda
Below is a transcribed message spoken by Paul Keith Davis at the "Open Heavens Prophetic Conference" on Mount of Olives, Israel, June 9, 2008:
Messengers of His Face
Well, there's a lot to share, and a short period of time to do it. I feel like the Lord has given us a prophetic message; probably one of the most significant things that I feel we have brought in recent memory. I really want you to pray that the Lord gives us the language to be able to articulate what He is releasing so that we are able to grasp it.
I'm very thankful to Brother Sadhu and these guys that have come before us. I was sorry I missed the first two and a half days. But you had the better of the two of us - my wife was here.
But I will say this, I came from England, and I felt like something happened in my last session in England that will have a carry-over effect here. It was an impromptu thing that happened in my last session when I mentioned that I really missed my wife, and that she at that very moment was on the Mount of Olives interceding for this meeting.
I was shocked at the response of the people as they began to enthusiastically bless Israel. Something happened in that session as I was sharing a message on the call that we presently have to become the "shining ones." In the midst of that atmosphere I shared that the Lord is releasing a very specific anointing direct from Heaven's Throne.
I began to talk about Throne Room protocol and it seemed something came from the Throne Room. When I left the session, several hundred of those conservative English people flooded the altar, and were weeping for over half an hour. So I believe that there was something that was deposited of what we're going to do tonight.
Lord Jesus, I just thank You for every person in this camp, and every person watching by way of television. Lord, we apply the bloodline of the Lord Jesus Christ around this meeting. We ask that the heavens open and a blessing come forth from the very Throne of God. Let there be a deposit from Heaven that will begin to usher us into the mandate to which we were called. Let there be a release of the angels of Your Presence and the messengers of Your face. And let this mark a transition in the timeline of Heaven. Amen.
Encounter of Lid Being Lifted from Bowels of Hell
Last year I had a revelatory encounter that I have shared in various places of travel. But the Lord is beginning to give us the next installment of understanding it.
I was very restless one evening and couldn't sleep. I prayed for a while and finally went to bed. The moment my head hit the pillow, I went into a revelatory experience. I saw as it were a lid being lifted from the bowels of hell. The unique thing about this experience was that as I was experiencing it, I was also articulating audibly what I was seeing. Wanda was able to listen as I spoke what I saw. I watched as these spirits came pouring up out of hell, and I even recognized the appearance of some of them.
I saw spirits that had a resemblance to Hitler and Stalin, and other tyrants of the past...I knew we had crossed some form of timeline in the plan of Heaven, and that this end-time darkness had been released on the earth.
I watched as these spirits were coming out of hell and literally manifesting themselves in the bedrooms of people. And I watched as these spirits were teaching individuals how to walk in realms of evil and darkness.
When it seemed I couldn't watch anymore, I heard a Voice come booming out of Heaven. And the Voice said, "The sons of light must respond in like manner." I watched as angels were coming out of Heaven and were manifesting themselves in the bedrooms of individuals and speaking to them and training them to walk in Heavenly realms never before so freely accessed by a generation of people.
And the good news of this message and what the Lord is doing now is revealing to a certain degree the nature of these angels being dispatched from the Throne room.
Interestingly I had this experience on a Friday afternoon, and I went through the weekend contemplating it. On Monday morning the Holy Spirit told me to write the experience down and email it to Neville Johnson.
It turned out that very day he had exactly the same experience. He even saw the identifications of the same spirits of darkness being released by name. He shared his experience with friends that morning and received my email 12 hours later outlining the exact same experience..."Out of the mouth of two or three witnesses, let the Word be established."
Signs in the Heavens
Something has happened recently that I feel is one of the most important celestial events of modern history. I believe it is a marker in the timeline of Heaven. We have crossed into a new realm of the releases of Heaven.
Interestingly it happened on March 19th 2008, which was one day before we started a conference that we felt was very significant called "Honoring the Fathers."
We had a promise from God that if we would honor the fathers of the prior generation, that He would release the spirit of revival. The Bible says that the Lord is going to send the spirit and power of Elijah before the great and terrible day of the Lord. That unique anointing will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers, "Lest He comes and smites the earth with a curse..." (Malachi 4:6).
And I believe, at least for our nation, there has been a curse on our land because of the lack of the honoring of the fathers. I believe we're to honor the fathers of the prior generation as well as the fathers of the apostolic age. And in many ways, for the Gentile nations we are to honor the Jewish people, because they are the fathers of the prior generations to bring us into the covenant of God. In our conference we honored many people like William Branham and A.A. Allan.
But one day before the conference something happened in the heavens described by scientists as one of the greatest celestial events in human history. There was an explosion of light that was the most enormous recorded release of celestial light ever seen in human history; not just modern history.
This celestial event was so tremendous, that it happened 7.5 billion light years ago and the light has been traveling through space at 671 million miles per hour, for 7.5 billion years. One light year is 5.9 trillion miles. So the light traveled through space at 671 million miles per hour, for 7.5 billion years, and reached Planet Earth on March 19th.
So I'm prophesying to you that the greatest explosion of spiritual light ever witnessed in human history is about to be released in the earth.
The Bible says that the heavens declare the Glory of God. I believe we have irrefutable physical and spiritual evidence that what we're about to share is for right now.
So with that, would you please turn to Zechariah 12. Tonight I want to speak more from a prophetic point of view, but tomorrow, Lord willing, I hope to speak more from a teaching point of view. I believe everything that we believe and everything we pursue must come from the Word of God.
"The Lord also will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem will not be magnified above Judah.
"In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord before them. And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
"I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn." Zechariah 12:7-10
I believe it is clear that this prophetic promise has both spiritual and natural implications. Can you imagine the day when the feeblest among us will have the valor of King David? What will it be like when the Bride of Christ is in such a place of union with God, that when we speak it is as though He spoke?
In that day the people of God will begin to release His anointing and it will be as though God Himself were there to do it. Not because of any presumptuous nature, but because He Himself would be manifested in and through this body of people.
But He said specifically in this prophecy that there would be a unique form of an angel that would go before this company of people. There has been an undeniable link between the progressive unfolding of God for the nation of Israel and for the Bride of Christ.
In 1896 a book was written by a Jewish man named Theodor Herzl called "The Jewish State." It was a prophetic call of the Jewish people back to the land of Israel; back to their inheritance; back to their promise.
In the very same year, 1896, Alexander Dowie commissioned his "Apostolic Church," calling the Church back to her inheritance; back to her promised land.
Then we saw in 1948 when Israel became a nation, that the Bride of Christ was released into one of the most significant revivals that has been recorded in 2,000 years of church history, once again showing the undeniable link that, "As Israel goes, so does the Church."
In 1967 the City of Jerusalem went back into the hands of the Jewish people. The Charismatic renewal was released in the Church.
I submit to you that we stand on the threshold of the next release of God's plan and the same anointing that brings Israel into it, will bring the Bride of Christ into hers and it's not something afar off. It is now. Signs in the heavens point to this present hour.
Messengers Coming from Heaven
We were promised that if we would "Honor the Fathers," that the spirit of revival would be released. And we're seeing that in some measure taking place now. Zechariah says, "The Angel of His Presence will go before them."
If you'll remember in the experience that Neville and I shared together, there would be angels coming out of Heaven to meet with saints to prepare them for this calling. Now we are discovering these are not just going to be ordinary angels. These are angels of a very extraordinary nature coming from standing in the presence of Almighty God.
Isaiah 63:9 declares:
"In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His presence saved them; in His love and in His mercy He redeemed them, and He lifted them and carried them all the days of old."
The Angel of His Presence saved them! We're finding out that this could have been more accurately translated in the original language, "Messenger of His Face." The word used here for "angel" is most often translated "messenger." The word for "Presence" is most often translated "face." The Lord sent the Messenger of His Face to save them.
So what I'm prophesying to you this evening is, "That messengers of His face are coming from Heaven to empower us to become messengers of His face."
It says in some rabbinical writings, that the "Angels of His Presence" are high level angels, also known as the "Angels of His face." According to the Book of Jubilees, "Angels of His Presence," are angels of sanctification, and are among the highest order of angels. According to rabbinical tradition the "Angels of His Presence" are the carriers of His Glory.
There was an incredible promise given to the patriarch Jacob. He had one of the most fantastic experiences ever given to a human being. There was something that distinguished him from his brother Esau; I submit to you it was his undenying desire, even though his methods were poor, to be blessed with a very specific and unique blessing. A very specific and unique blessing is what He was contending for.
If you'll remember, Abraham had been given a promise that he would have a son through Sarah. However, the promise seemed impossible since the Bible says his body was as good as dead. Then, the Lord appeared to him for the first time in human history as El Shaddai.
I was in Dallas, Texas, several years ago, preaching on the ministry and anointing of El Shaddai. I had shared that El Shaddai was the "All Sufficient-One, the many-breasted One," like I had read in dictionaries. There happened to be a professor of Hebrew in the meeting. He came to me after the meeting and said, "Can I help you a little bit?"
He said, "What you shared about El Shaddai is not inaccurate, it's just incomplete." He said, "The truest definition of El Shaddai is, 'I am the God of utter ruin and devastation and I am here to do for you what you cannot do for yourself.'"
Abraham was not able to fulfill the promise now in his own strength. God did for him what he could not do for himself. That's called the El Shaddai blessing.
Can I submit to you what Israel needs in this very hour is the El Shaddai blessing? Can I equally submit to you that the Bride of Christ needs the El Shaddai blessing?
That blessing was then transferred and imparted from Abraham to Isaac. Isaac received the blessing given to Abraham; to be fruitful and multiply and occupy the land of his sojourning. That was the blessing that Jacob had to have, even if he were to become a "supplanter" to get it.
When the time came, Isaac laid his hands upon Jacob and blessed him with the El Shaddai blessing. He said, "May God Almighty, or El Shaddai, bless you to make you fruitful and multiply, and occupy the land of your sojourning."
That very day that blessing opened the Heaven's over Jacob. With that blessing Jacob traveled one day's journey. When evening came he laid his head upon a rock and saw the heavens opened and angels ascending and descending. We need the El Shaddai blessing to open the heavens for us as it did for Jacob. We need the El Shaddai blessing tonight to open the heavens and release the "Angels of His Presence."
The Bible tells us over in Genesis 48:3, when Jacob is recounting this experience to his son Joseph, he said it was El Shaddai that appeared at the head of that ladder when the blessing was given to him. In Genesis 28:13-14 he said:
"Behold, the Lord stood above it and said, 'I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants. Your descendants will also be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your descendants shall all the families of the earth be blessed."
When Jacob awoke from the experience he said, "This is none other than the House of God and the very gate of Heaven!" (verse 17).
Later on, we then find his descendants, the children of Israel, in Egyptian bondage but they had a promise of deliverance. There was a very specific and unique anointing that was released to them to bring them into this promise that was given to Jacob.
Angels Sent from the Presence of Almighty God
The Bible records in Exodus 23:
"Behold, I am going to send an angel before you to guard you along the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Be on your guard before him and obey his voice; do not be rebellious toward him, for he will not pardon your transgression, since My name is in him. But if you truly obey his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries...But you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water; and I will remove sickness from your midst" (verses 20-22, 25).
That was no ordinary angel; it was the Angel of His Presence. That was the Pillar of Fire in the burning bush; that was the Pillar of Fire that met Paul on the road to Damascus; that was the Pillar of Fire that we saw revealed before thousands one generation ago to reveal the secrets of the hearts.
The Lord manifests Himself as the Angel of His Presence, but He has in His jurisdiction angels of His presence or messengers of His face.
Remember what Gabriel said when he appeared to a little 15-year old Jewish girl? "I am Gabriel, and I stand in the Presence of Almighty God." The greatest revival that the modern church era has ever seen was commissioned in a very unique way.
A little freewill Baptist minister withdrew into a cabin deep into the woods of Indiana. He was having supernatural experiences for which he had no grid of understanding. He had told his wife that day, "I'm going into my cabin to pray, and if God does not meet with me, you'll never see my face again." He said, "I'll die in that cabin before I leave it, without the Lord coming to talk to me."
Three o'clock in the morning, after having prayed and wept until his eyes were practically shut, he sat on a chair with no more prayer left in him. 3 o'clock in the morning, deep in the woods, no electricity, no running water, no wife to hold on to if he got scared, when suddenly a ball of fire came into the cabin. And if that weren't enough to scare you, a man came walking into the room and stood under the ball of fire.
The Angel said, "Fear not, for I am sent from the Presence of Almighty God." Can I submit to you tonight that we need to hear an angel come and say, "I am sent from the Presence of Almighty God!"
The man was released into a commissioning. The Angel said, "Your peculiar life and your misunderstood ways are to indicate that you're to carry the ministry of healing to the nations of the earth. You'll pray for kings and princes and monarchs."
He said, "How can that be? I'm an uneducated man, and a poor man, and I live among poor people." The angel said, "As Moses was given two signs to validate his ministry, so will you."
That was on May 7, 1946. By 1948, the entire world was in revival. Millions of people came into the Kingdom. Millions of people were healed supernaturally by the power of God.
Encounter the God of Power
Never before has any generation been more desperate than ours to see a demonstration of the power of God. But we're discovering there is something greater than that; that is, to encounter the God of Power.
Right now all over the nation there are people that are following signs and wonders. But I submit to you there will be a company of people emerging today and signs and wonders are going to follow them!
And the secret that is going to release us into that mandate is when the Messengers of His face come who are the carriers of the Glory of God.
The prophet Moses stood face to face before the Lord Jesus, under a covenant sealed with the blood of bulls and goats. I had an experience where I saw the Apostle Paul sticking his bony apostolic finger right in my chest. He said, "Moses had to veil his face because of the residual glory under a covenant sealed with the blood of bulls and goats." He said, "You have the covenant sealed with the Blood of Jesus Christ, what's your problem?" This is his admonition from 2 Corinthians 3.
In other words, he wasn't saying that we should timidly say, "Can I come into Your Presence?" He was admonishing us to prepare ourselves and come boldly before the Throne of Grace and meet with the Lord face-to-face. We can't do that flippantly...there is Throne room protocol; but the grace to live in that place was purchased at the Cross and it is attainable.
Zechariah 6:1-5 declares:
"Now I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming forth from between the two mountains; and the mountains were bronze mountains. With the first chariot were red horses, with the second chariot black horses, with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot strong dappled horses. Then I spoke and said to the angel who was speaking with me, 'What are these, my lord?' The angel replied to me, 'These are the four spirits of Heaven, going forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth.'"
I submit to you there is a host of Heaven that has been reserved for this end-time confrontation that go forth after standing before the Lord of all the earth; the very same ones that will bring the Bride of Christ into her end-time mandate will be the very same ones that cover and protect Israel.
You and I are called to be messengers of His face; we have a calling to see the Lord face-to-face. Jacob had an experience with God. He saw the Lord face-to-face and lived to tell about it. Moses saw the Lord face-to-face and carried the Glory of God. There is about to be a release from Heaven that is to begin to cause you and I to be illuminated, and we're going to shine with the Glory of God.
Daniel said, we're going to shine as the brightness of the expanse of Heaven, and we're going to lead many to righteousness. The Lord Jesus said, "The Son of man is going to send forth His angels that gather out of His Kingdom all stumbling blocks and everything offensive; then the righteous shall shine like the sun in the Kingdom of our Father" (Matthew 13:41,43)
We have an invitation to "come up here." I believe the El Shaddai blessing is going to be released upon us to open the Heaven's like it did for Jacob. The Lord is going to do for us what we can't do for ourselves. Then He gets all the Glory. No flesh is going to glory in His Presence.
Angels of His Presence - Messengers of His Face
I believe they just came in. Something just shifted in the room a moment ago. I'm contending for this to take place now. Wouldn't it be incredible if we could leave Israel carrying with us messengers of His face? Wouldn't it be incredible if the Angel of His Presence descended to protect the borders of Israel?
He will cover them and He will protect them. I submit to you that the enemy is trying to escalate things before their time. Several years ago, I heard the Lord say that the Prince of Persia is once again trying to withstand the birthing of God's purposes. And the way he was trying to do that was to facilitate things that are legitimately going to happen, but he is trying to initiate them before its timing.
It says in Zechariah 14:1-2, "Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city."
But it doesn't stop there. Verses 3-4, "Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split..."
My point in all this is all about Jerusalem. It says on some level that there will be a splitting of Jerusalem. It says it here in Zechariah; but not right now! I'm not sure what it's going to look like when this prophecy is fulfilled, but I know when it happens, the Lord Jesus is coming down to set His foot upon this mountain.
And you see the battle is taking place in the heavens right now, as the enemy is trying to make these things happen before the right timing. He's been trying to bring you and I into a battle before we are ready for the battle. But I'm telling you angels are coming to visit with people to facilitate the preparation. He can do for us in a day what we think will take a year. The messengers of His face are the carriers of His glory.
I remember reading the testimony of Maria Woodworth-Etter. The Lord Jesus Himself appeared to her in a little log cabin in the Midwest. He asked this little 90 pound housewife who had buried 5 of her 6 children, "Why aren't you in My vineyard?" She said, "I'm a woman." I'm sure the Lord knew that already, and He didn't seem to have a problem with that.
He asked her again, "Why aren't you in My vineyard?" She said, "Lord, I don't know Your Word well enough." And the Lord pointed to the wall of her log cabin and there on the wall supernaturally imposed was an open Bible. She records in her journal that the Glory of God was resting on it and the moment her eyes fell on it, she said she understood it from Genesis to Revelations.
The Lord asked her a third time, "Why aren't you in My vineyard?" She said, "Lord, You give me the power You gave those Galilean fisherman, and I'll go." He did, and she did; 45 years of miracle ministry to validate that her testimony is true. If He can do it for her, He can do it for you and I.
Lord Jesus, let the glory of God fall on these people. May the blessings of El Shaddai fall on them. May their eyes be opened to the supernatural realm to make us messengers of Your face. Let the glory of God come. Let us understand Your Word from Genesis to Revelations. Lord, give us the power You gave those Galilean fishermen. Let us change our generation the way they changed theirs.
Lord, like Moses, let our face be an illumination of the Glory of God. Grant it tonight, Lord. Grant it tonight, Lord to become Messengers of His face. Messengers of His face.
I'm telling you, something is in this room that can shift everything that we do from this point forward. What better place than the Mount of Olives to issue a decree that releases an entire generation into the purpose and mandate of God.
The Lord said, "I'll put My Word in your mouth and I'll cover you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, you are My people" (Isaiah 51).
Lord, right now I'm asking that You would put a Word in our mouths, cover us with the shadow of Your hands. Let us contend for this destiny.
Steven Shelley Sings, Paul Keith Decrees
I've asked Brother Steven Shelley to lead us in a song. It's more than a song, it's a prayer. If anything expresses our heart in this hour, it's this song written by our friend Don Potter.
So as he sings this song, make it a prayer from the depths of your heart...
Steven Shelley sings: "Show me Your face, Lord...show me Your face..."
As Steven sings, Paul Keith issues these decrees:
Right now we can issue this decree from this atmosphere of the anointing. Let's just issue the decree over the Land of Israel, that the Angel of His Presence will come down, that the Angel of His Presence will guard the nation of Israel.
Lord, send the Angel once again like You did in the days of Moses. Send the Angel of Your Presence. Send the Angel of Your Presence. For Your Name is in Him. Guard us along the way, Lord. Bring us into the place of His promise.
Lord, grant it, as we obey Your voice in all that He says. Be an adversary to our adversaries, be an enemy to our enemies. Bring us, Lord, into that place of habitation. Remove sickness from our midst. We ask it, Lord, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bless our bread and our water, Lord...to flourish in the realms of the Spirit. Open the heavens, Lord, and send the angels of Your Presence. Send forth messengers of Your face. From the Mount of Olives, send forth messengers of Your face...carriers of the glory of God.
Grant it tonight, Lord. It's Heaven's gift. Let the heavens be opened with power. Make everyone in this room to be a messenger of the Lord; a messenger of the Lord of Hosts.
Let true instruction be in our mouths and unrighteousness not be found upon our lips. For the lips of a priest should preserve knowledge and men should seek instruction from his mouth, for he is the messenger of the Lord of Hosts. Messengers, Lord. That's what we're after. Messengers of the Kingdom...carriers of the Glory. Signs and wonders following this company of people, Lord, that become messengers of Your face.
Lord, let it be the very same blessing that overshadows Israel, that the enemies of God would be pushed back because of the prayers of the saints. Let every plot, every scheme, and every device of hell that tries to preempt the purpose of God be annihilated by the messengers of His face.
We say no to hell's plans. No. He will not bring things forth before their timing. We issue a decree for the purpose of God, and we say, "Let it be according to the plan of God, and the Word of the Living God."
Grant it, Lord. Grant it, Lord. Let it come forth from this place with power. Let not the words of Your people fall to the ground. Lord, bring them forth until everyone is fulfilled. Because it's Your Word, Lord. It's Your Word. Men's words may fail, but Your Word will never fail. Heaven and earth will pass away, but this Word will not pass away.
We just release it, Lord. We release it, Lord. And I release these people into dreams and into visions and revelations of God. Grant it, Lord. Let us be visited by the messengers of Your face. May the angels of Your Presence, may the angels that stand in the Presence of Almighty God, let them be released. Let them be released in this hour. Let them meet with the saints of God. Make them messengers of His face.
Grant it, Lord. Grant it, I pray in the Name of the Lord Jesus, to the Glory of the Heavenly Father. Grant it, Lord. Oh, don't you feel that release?
Lord, we welcome the host of Heaven. We welcome the witnesses of God who testify of the living Word. Grant it, Lord. Grant it, I pray, that the mantles of revelation and power carried by the fathers of prior generations be released in this very hour. Grant it, Lord. Grant it, Lord.
Much has been sown - now it's time to reap. We're in the harvest. Those who sow and those who reap rejoice together. Heaven is rejoicing when we begin to reap the promises, reap the commissions, and reap the harvest of Heaven. Grant it tonight, Lord. Let everything be different after this day. Let this be a new day, a new beginning.
One more time, as Steven sings the chorus, will you lift your voice up to Heaven and ask the Lord to show us His face.
Brother Shelley sings: "Show me Your face, Lord. Show me Your face. Oh, then gird up my legs, that I might stand in this holy place. Show me Your face, Lord, Your power and Your grace. I know I'll make it to the end if I can just see Your face."
Paul Keith: Lord, this is my prayer, "Lord, I'm not going to make it, unless I see Your face. Lord, I'm not going to be satisfied unless I see Your face."
Is that your prayer tonight? "Lord Jesus, if You showed Yourself to Moses, You can show Yourself to me and every saint in this room. Lord Jesus, don't hold back any longer, Lord. No delay."
When the Angel sets His foot on the land and the sea, there shall be delay no longer. No longer delaying the promises; No longer holding back this army of people that will stand in the Presence of Almighty God and say, "Thus Saith the Lord."
Lord Jesus, we're asking, let "Thus Saith the Lord" come forth. Let it come forth. Let people declare a Word that comes straight from the very throne of Heaven. Grant it, Lord. Let us stand before the enemies of God and say, "Thus Saith the Lord."
Let our enemies be scattered...no more to steal, no more to rob, no more to devour. May the years that the cankerworm, the caterpillar, and the locust, may they be restored in this very land upon which we now stand.
Lord, raise up an army, an army, oh Lord; an army of messengers, an army of people that have seen the face of God and who carry the glory of God. Lord, we're issuing that decree over every nation on the face of the earth, within the sound of the hearing of our voice.
Lord, let the host of Heaven come. Lord, do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Grant it tonight. Grant it tonight.
One more time, Steven..."Show me Your face."
Paul Keith: Something just happened.
One time when I was in Moravian Falls, I had the most profound experience, and I just saw it again. The wall disappeared in my bedroom, and I saw Flames of Fire where the wall had been. And I saw a Man standing behind the Flames of Fire. And He had a sword drawn, and He had His hand raised to the sky.
He was looking off to the right. He turned His head, and our eyes met and I was undone. It was the Captain of the Lord's Host.
And just now as I turned right here, I saw it. Oh, could it be that we're living in the day when the Lord is coming back now as the Captain of His host?
Lord Jesus, now is the time for the crossing over. Now is the time of dispossessing the enemies of God.
Lord, grant it. Take Your place, Lord, as Captain of the Host. As Captain of the Host, lift Your Sword, Lord, the Word of the Living God, and make these people the messengers of Heaven. Grant it, Lord. Grant it, Lord. Let it happen.
"Show me Your face, Lord..." Let the winds of God come, let the sound of a mighty rushing wind flow through this place. Grant it, Lord. Make us warriors. Make us warriors. Everyone here, that the feeblest among us would be like the valor of King David. Grant it, Lord.
I prophesy that over you: "The valor of King David, the warlike nature of King David be released in this place right now, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Grant it, Lord. Lord, let it happen.
Brother Shelley: "Then gird up my legs...that I might stand in this holy place..."
Paul Keith: Lord, remove every veil. Remove every veil. Lord, I'm just going to ask right now that You would send, as You promised, the angels that gather; that You would send the angels that gather out of our path every stumbling block and everything that's within us, Lord, that stands in the way of that mandate. Let it be removed. Everything affecting You, let it be removed.
I'm telling you, we're in the atmosphere that you can lay them down right now; you'll never have to deal with them again. If you're dealing with issues of shame...that can end right now. If you're dealing with oppression, or betrayal, a broken heart, whatever it is, I'm telling you, it can be laid down tonight, and never again to torment you.
So Lord, I release that over these people, that they can become the messengers of Your face. I release it over these television waves, for the people that are watching all over the world can be set free; can be released in the mandate and purposes of God. All over this world an army would emerge who are the carriers of the Glory; messengers of the face of God.
Lord, we just release that decree from the Mount of Olives, this sacred place, this incredibly historic place upon which we stand. How many of the decrees of Heaven have gone forth from this place.
And Lord, we right now want to inherit the promises of the Land, the promises of the patriarchs. Lord, like Enoch we want to walk with You. Lord, like Abraham we want to become Your friend. Lord, grant it. Grant it, I pray that we may become the beneficiaries of the blessings of God, and the carriers of Your Glory. Grant it.
Let's wait on God. We're in His Presence. We don't need a prophetic Word, we need an impartation of what is here...
Grant it. Fill us. Let the weight of Your Presence fill this room. The weight of Your Presence...all over the nations.
Lord, if Your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from this place. We just can't do it without Your Presence, Lord...
