Saturday 27th August saw the first hurricane to hit the American mainland since September 2008, when Hurricane Ike hit the US. Hurricane Irene was billed by politicians and the media as a potential monster, at one point being forecast as a possible category 4 hurricane. Much was made of the projected path through Manhattan and New York city. Major Bloomberg called a state of emergency and urged residents to leave the city, as the media hyped the situation and fear took hold. However, ICOTG Manhattan opted to stay in the city and protect their region, property and local people. The church met together, shared communion and prayed over the city; prophesying that the forecast destruction would not hit.
As the storm raged through North Carolina, Maryland and Baltimore causing extensive damage and loss of life (48 people were killed by the hurricane), forecasters were still predicting a direct hit for Manhattan New York. However, as the storm approached, the path suddenly turned to the west, and the the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm. The ICOTG New York gateway reported heavy rain, which caused a little flooding, but the major destruction and potential loss of life within the city never happened, for which we thank God, and honor our church in Manhattan, for their faithful intercession. Especially at this time when the financial markets are so fragile.
However, the now ‘tropical storm’ continued to travel north to Massachusetts and Vermont. Vermont suffered record breaking flooding, and power cuts; the people left bewildered by the force of nature asking, “Why Vermont?”
Prophet TV’s gateways have a long track record of deflecting storms. ICOTG Florida have seen many hurricanes change course and not hit their area. Prophet TV seeks to raise up warriors who can stand in their regions to protect them against these destructive influences – “when the enemy comes in like a flood, God raises up a standard.”
Hurricane Irene’s power may have been curtailed, and the important Manhattan region was protected, however Vermont was not. Vermont could have been protected against the devastation, had sons of God stood in the authority of Jesus to protect their region.
Current estimates predict Hurricane Irene will cost America over $10 billion to repair the damage, with the Fed to provide $7 billion of this, making Hurricane Irene one of the top ten worst natural disasters in America’s history. This is money America can ill afford at this time; money the average American will have to pay. But it is money we need not be spending, if the church walked in the authority available to us through Jesus Christ, and we stood to protect our regions against the demonic being released throughout this nation by the worship of other gods and witchcraft.
It takes years for God to purge, test and temper you, so He can put a permanent heavy mantle on you to resist this level of demonic destruction.
This process is not easy, in fact it is the “Great Tribulation” the bible speaks of, though it has been mis-taught in the popular Christian sub-culture.
Most Christians, including the leaders of the body, do not have this level of authority and have not gone through this process or even understand it, even though they teach the bible, and raise up more that do not have the authority to stop destruction in their regions.
NOTE: Jesus was not half way around the world praying to stop the storm, He was on the boat IN THE STORM, and broke the power !
It is the same with us.
We must have boots on the ground.
NOTE: Because the ICOTG gatekeepers in New York chose to submit to the process of God and his prophet, (and it has been hell for them, going through “great tribulation” for over a year, as God continues to do a quick work), when the prophet told them to leave NY, they responded “We will not, we are here to represent God and protect our city”,
This too, was God testing their hearts and conviction…
God spoke through the prophet, “because of your heart, I am temporarily putting a 10 fold mantle upon you, and even as you raise your hand and face the storm, it will dissipate around your position, even as you saw the woman stand and the water be deflected in the x-men”.
This is exactly what happened and the news media in NY is now being accused of hyping the storm and they cannot explain what happened to deflect and dissipate it’s destruction as it hit Manhattan.
Note: 10,000 praying a miss, cannot compare to one obedient servant going through God’s process so God can put an anointing or gift on you. It is God’s anointing or specific gifts and mantles, that break the yoke, not the preaching or teaching or even the praying of the religious.
Note: these gifts are never taken from you, but you will go through “Great Tribulation” before God can trust you with this level of power.
Because many popular leaders themselves, have not submitted to God’s process, God cannot trust the leaders of the body with this level of power.
A leader can and will never teach what he doesn’t know, but instead will turn the gospel message away from the process and power of God, to a constant focus on your behavior and your sin nature.
Hence the problems we see in the world today, No sons of God to meet Him in the clouds and rule and reign.
Submit to God’s process, let God have His way with you.
Do not mock or blaspheme the Holy Spirit on God’s prophet, a fallible man yes, but one who has gone through God’s process and God Himself has poured out gifts upon him and confirms him with signs and wonders as He is the servant of the most high God.
Raising you up with a clear revelation of the power of God!
