Prayer Guide for Healing

I thank you Jesus that you are a healer Matthew 4:23-24 / 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Just as you came and healed the servant you came and healed meMatthew 8:5-7 / 5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
I believe for my healingMatthew 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
Since You Lord Jesus bore my infirmities and sicknesses I don’t have to –  Matthew 8:16-17 / 16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
My healing is according to my faith and I believe I am healedMatthew 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
Jesus heals every sickness and diseaseMatthew 9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Lame, blind, dumb or maimed, Jesus you heal them all and I am no exceptionMatthew 15:30 And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them:
I say I touch You Jesus and I am healedMark 5:25-29 / 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
My faith makes me wholeMark 5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
Thank you Lord for abundant life free from sickness and disease John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Through the name of Jesus I am healedActs 3:16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know; yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
Thank you Jesus that you heal from all oppressions of the DevilActs 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Thank you Lord I was healed at Calvary1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
I agree with you Lord that healing is your will for me 3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Apostolic Prayers

Prayer to know God's will, to be fruitful in ministry and strengthened by intimacy with God.
 

We…do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may have a WALK WORTHY OF THE LORD, fully pleasing Him, BEING FRUITFUL in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; STRENGTHENED WITH ALL MIGHT, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.  (Col. 1:9-12)

Prayer for unity in the church across a city or region.

Now may the God of patience and comfort GRANT YOU TO BE LIKE-MINDED toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, THAT YOU MAY WITH ONE MIND AND ONE MOUTH glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus. (Rom. 15:5-7)

Prayer to be filled with supernatural joy, peace and hope.

Now may the God of hope FILL YOU WITH ALL JOY AND PEACE IN BELIEVING, THAT YOU MAY ABOUND IN HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit.  (Rom. 15:13)

 Prayer to be equipped and prepared to receive the fulness of God’s destiny for the church.

Therefore we also pray always for you THAT OUR GOD WOULD COUNT YOU WORTHY OF THIS CALLING, AND FULFILL ALL THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS GOODNESS AND THE WORK OF FAITH WITH POWER, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.  (2 Thes. 1:11-12)

Prayer for the Word to increase by the release of God's power to win unbelievers to Jesus. 

Finally, brethren, pray for us, THAT THE WORD OF THE LORD MAY RUN SWIFTLY AND BE GLORIFIED, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, both that you do and will do the things we command you. NOW MAY THE LORD DIRECT YOUR HEARTS INTO THE LOVE OF GOD AND INTO THE PATIENCE OF CHRIST. (2 Thes. 3:1-5)
Note Scriptures describing God causing His Word to increase resulting in many being born again.  God glorifies His Word by manifesting His power to confirm it with signs and wonders. Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed. (Acts 13:48)

So the Word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed. (Acts 19:20)

The Word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly…(Acts 6:7)

But the Word of God grew and multiplied. (Acts 12:24)

Then the proconsul believed, when he saw what had been done, being astonished at the Teaching of the Lord. (Acts 13:12)

Prayer Guide - Praying For Your Nation

Leave a Comment

You will need: A national newspaper, a pair of scissors, glue or tape, a window and/or a cell phone screen, a picture of your national leader and a map or drawing of your nation.



What is Your Nation Like?

In every country there are things to thank God for and things to ask for His help with. Look through a recent

Newspaper and cut out words that describe good and bad things about your nation. Stick them to a piece of paper and look at the image they create. Thank God for the good things you read. Ask for His help with the bad.



Praying Through the Newspaper

Now look through the articles in the Newspaper you’ve been using. Choose two things happening in or affecting your nation today. Stick the articles to a window and if there’s daylight ask God to shine His wisdom on these situations. If it’s night use a torch to illuminate the stories to represent God’s truth and wisdom illuminating our world. Ask Jesus to move and for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done.



Praying for Your Nation

Think about the role that government plays in our lives today. Lay the map of your nation on the floor and stand on the place where your government meets. Pray that Jesus’ Kingdom would be the foundation of law and leadership in your nation.



Look around you at the different parts of your country. Consider the different kinds of people that live in each region.

Pray for the ones that jump out at you. Ask the Holy Spirit to move in your nation and speak out His fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.



Pick up the picture of your national leader. If there is a cross in your prayer room bring the image and lay it at its base. Pray that your leader will come to know Jesus better as His Lord and Savior. Ask God to guide your leader in justice and wisdom.



Pray for a Friend and for an Enemy

Every nation has allies and enemies. Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor (Matthew 22:38) and to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44); this can be difficult when war or oppression is at the root of dislike. Choose a nation that is closely allied to your own, and then choose a nation that is historically or currently an adversary. Write their names in your prayer room and pray for God’s kingdom and blessing to come in both. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you pray into their strengths and weaknesses.

Praying For Your City


You will need: a pen, paper and your imagination

Jesus at Your Door
It’s morning and the doorbell has woken you, “Was I meant to meet someone?” you think as you get out of bed and walk to the front door. There, standing in the doorway, is a man with a warm smile. You’ve never met Him face to face but somehow you recognize Him: Jesus has come to your home! What breakfast would you share with Him? Think of the smell, how does it taste, what would you drink? As you look across at Him is there something you want to ask Him? Why not take this opportunity…
At the end of the meal Jesus looks up and asks, “I want to see what this place is like, would you show me around?”

Use Your Imagination
Imagine you and Jesus walk out your front door and through your village, town or city. You take the journey slower than normal, every road name sticks in your head and things seem more vivid today. What do you notice about the streets and the people? Jesus knocks on a door and an elderly lady answers. He tells her that He’s heard her prayer and whispers something in her ear. Tears of joy fill her eyes. You continued your journey passing young people hanging out, Moms with their children and people going about their daily jobs. Who do you want to stop and talk to?
Who do you want to introduce to Jesus?

Jesus asks you what you know about your area. He’s particularly interested in employment, homelessness, unwanted children, other religions practiced there and how many Christians there are. Take some time to think about how you would answer Jesus and what His response would be. Pray with Him about these issues as you walk the streets.

You’ve arrived at the local Hospital or Doctor’s clinic. Jesus looks around the waiting area then sits down next to a man in the corner. As they speak color fills the man’s face, he straightens, walks out healed. Who else would Jesus visit here? Pray for the sick with Him, imagine those you know who need healing sitting in that waiting room being prayed for.

Continue your journey to places where people need Jesus’ help. Think of schools, local law enforcement, the oppressed or imprisoned. Where are the significant landmarks of your area? As you imagine taking him to each one how does Jesus respond and whom is He interested in speaking with?

You decide to take Jesus out for the evening, hoping to introduce him to your friends. Who’s out on the street as the day grows dark? You find your favorite place to hang out and introduce him to your friends. Conversation starts quickly everyone has questions and a crowd begins to gather. What would your friends ask Jesus? How would you respond to their questions? People see you sitting with Him, how do you feel about it? Are you behaving the same as you normally would or are you different tonight?

At the end of an amazing evening Jesus gives you a massive hug and thanks you for a lovely day. You wander home and think about what it would be like if He visited every day. What would change in your area and in you? Ask for
Jesus to give you the Holy Spirit and as you leave the Prayer Room ask to be Jesus’ representative bringing God’s
Kingdom with you into all the places you have been thinking about.

Spark Notes (3/11)

Leave a Comment
Introduction to the End Times - Session 4
  1. Jesus’ Ascension and His Return
    1. Jesus’ Return and the believer’s rapture to meet Jesus in the air will be a glorious event.
      1. Jesus is coming back on a cloud.  “He (Jesus) was taken up before their eyes, and a cloud hid him…They were looking intently up into the sky as He was going…Suddenly two men in white stood beside them and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky?  This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven,”
      2. Jesus appearing in the sky will be a spectacular light show!  “If anyone tells you, ‘There He is, in the desert, or here He is in the inner rooms’, do not believe it.  For as lightning that comes from the east is visible in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man…Immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky’…At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky…they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds with power and great glory.”  (Matt. 24:26-30)
      3. Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem and His death outside Jerusalem were both surrounded by glorious events.(angels appearing and singing, bright star, darkness for 3 hours, earthquake, heavens shaken, etc.)  His second coming will be with even more glory and it will be witnessed by all humanity.  “Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess”.  (Philippians 2:10)
  2. Jesus is Preparing a Home (Place) for His bride and He is our Great Intercessor in the waiting
    1. “Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.  Trust in God; trust also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms…I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”  (John 14:1-3)  Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, yet He is actively working and preparing for us to be together for all eternity.  
    2. Jesus the Great Intercessor.  “Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25).  Jesus is interceding for us while Satan (whose name means “accuser”) is accusing us, pointing out our sins and frailties before God. But the accusations fall upon deaf ears in heaven, because Jesus’ work on the cross paid our sin debt in full; therefore, God always sees in His children the perfect righteousness of Jesus.  Jesus is the only human mediator between God and man.  “For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Tim. 2:5)
    3. God governs the universe in intimate partnership with His people through intercession.  The governmental center of the universe is the “prayer room”; God chose intercession as the primary means in which we could govern with Him.  “You do not have because you do not ask.”  (James 4:2)  “The Lord longs to be gracious to you…He waits to have compassion on you…He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it.  He will answer you.”  (Is. 30:18-19) See also, Ezek. 22:30; Psalm 149:6-9.
  3. Jesus will take the scroll from the Father and break its seals
    1. God the Father holds the scroll (the title deed of the earth) and Jesus is the only one worthy to take the scroll and break its seals.  “Then I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll…sealed with seven seals.  I saw a mighty angel proclaim, ‘Who is worthy to take the scroll and open its seals?’ …the Lion of the tribe of Judah has triumphed.  He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.  Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain…He came and took the scroll from the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.”  (Revelation 5:1-7)
    2. Jesus takes the scroll when the prayer movement has become mature and the bowls of incense are full.  “When He had taken the scroll…the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb.  Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.”  (Revelation 5:8-9)
    3. Jesus is the One releasing the seals, trumpets, and bowls in partnership with the praying church.  Jesus will come back by way of invitation through prayer and worship.  “You will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord’.”  (Matt. 23:39)
  4. Jesus Procession
    1. Jesus’ Second Coming Procession begins in the sky with the rapture.  The saints and the angels will return with Jesus in glory.  “Behold He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him…and all the tribes will mourn because of Him.”  (Rev. 1:7) “At the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all the saints.” (1 Thess. 3:13)  “Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.”  (Zech. 14:5)  “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him.”  (Matt. 25:31)  Jesus will rapture the saints when the trumpet sounds.  (Matt. 24:31, 1 Thess. 4:16, Is. 27:13)  “We shall all be changed…in a moment…at the Last Trumpet.  For the Trumpet will sound, and the dead (saints) will be raised first, and we all shall be changed.”  (1 Cor. 15:51-52)
    2. Jesus Procession ends on the earth with victory over the armies of the Antichrist at Jerusalem.  (Rev. 19:11-21; Zech. 12:1-13:6, 14:1-9) “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.  With justice he judges and makes war…The armies of heaven were following him, riding white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean…Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword…the Beast and the False Prophet were thrown alive into the burning fire.  The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse.”  (Rev. 19)
  5. Jesus is Returning to Rule and Reign Permanently
    1. “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away…I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully   dressed for her husband…”Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them and be their God.  He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away…’it is done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.’”  (Rev. 21)

You will need: a Bible, paper, a pen and a trash basket.

Ask God to help you pray and read the Lords prayer in Matthew 6:9-15



Approach

Read Matthew 6:9 again.

Think of all the names you’ve heard God called (if you need inspiration why not read: Genesis 21:33, Exodus 3:14, Judges 6:24, Deuteronomy 7:9, Deuteronomy 10:17, Isaiah 5:16, Psalm 136:26, Isaiah 7:14 & John 8:58.)

Which name do you most use when speaking to God?

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A.W. Tozer

Do you use the name ‘Father’?

Read Matthew 7:9-11.

How does your identity as God’s child affect the way you approach Him now?



Ask

Read Matthew 6:10-11.

Write your name in the center of a sheet of paper.

Surround it with the people, situations and places that you want God to move in. Include anything that has been worrying you.

Ask God to teach you to pray in His will for His kingdom in each of these situations.

Make a paper airplane out of what you’ve written and as you throw it across the room thank God that He has your whole life and all your requests in His hands.



Examine

Read Matthew 6:12.

Think back through your last 24 hours, the things you’ve done the people you’ve met.

Ask the Holy Spirit to highlight things you’ve done wrong.

Next ask the Holy Spirit to show you times you should have acted and did not. 

Write everything that has come to mind on a piece of paper.  As you say sorry tear it up and throw it into the trash basket. Thank God for forgiving you. Is there someone you need to forgive today? Ask God to show you who.



Extol

Read Revelation 1:6.

Stand and speak the names of God aloud adding after each one why this is true in your life (i.e. I know you’re my

Provider because you provided for the debts I needed to pay).

Write a song or poem that expresses your love to the Father. Find inspiration from the book of Psalms and modern day worship songs.



As you leave the Prayer Room stand and say:

“I arise today through the strength of heaven….

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down,

Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise

Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me

Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me

Christ in every eye that sees me

Christ in every ear that hears me”

Introduction to the End Times                                                                                                              Session 3

I.                 3 Time Periods leading up to Jesus ‘Return

a.      The beginning of Birth Pangs.  Jesus commanded us to watch and pray during the period called the “beginning of birth pangs”.  Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 give us signs to watch for as we wait for Jesus to return.  (earthquakes, pestilence, wars, rumors of war, fearful sights, commotions, nation against nation, great signs in heaven)  Theses signs will be like birth pangs; they will grow in intensity and happen more frequently.

b.      False Peace and Safety.  The period of birth pangs will end when the Antichrist signs a 7 year peace treaty with Israel.  This 7 years period is referred to in scripture as the “Tribulation”.  There will be great war in the Middle East and the Antichrist will arise as a world leader who will bring false peace. 

                                                    i.     “When they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.”  (1 Thess. 5:3). 

                                                   ii.     “Then he (Antichrist) shall make a covenant (peace treaty) with many for one week (7 year period), but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to the sacrifice (in the Jerusalem temple, and break the covenant).”  (Dan. 9:27) The Antichrist will make a peace treaty designed for seven years, however in the middle of the seven-year period (3 ½ years later) he will break the treaty. 

1.      The signing of a 7 year peace treaty will be the key event to warn believers they are in a “false peace season” and to watch for the Antichrist to break the treaty. 

c.      The Great Tribulation.  The Great Tribulation period is the final 3 ½ year period before Jesus returns.  During this time period the Antichrist shows his hostility openly and requires all people on earth to worship him.  “There will be great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, nor ever shall be.”  (Matt. 24:21-22)

                                                    i.     Scriptures tell us plainly in many different ways that the Great Tribulation will be a 3 ½ year period.  It is described as:  42 months (Rev. 11:2, 13:5); 1260 days (Rev. 11:3, 12:6); Time, times, and half a time (Dan. 7:25, 12:7; Rev. 12:14); Middle of the Week (Dan. 9:27)

                                                   ii.     The purpose of the Great Tribulation is to purify God’s people, bring in the harvest and the salvation of Israel, expose false believers, demonstrate God’s power in protecting the saints (Rom. 9:17), and purge the earth from the defilement of sin (Isa. 24:4-6, Zech. 13:2). 

                                                  iii.     The Abomination of Desolation:  The primary sign of the Great Tribulation (final 3 ½ years).  “When you see the ‘abomination of desolation’ spoken of by the prophet Daniel standing in the holy place…then there will be great tribulation.”  (Matt. 24:15-22). The Abomination of Desolation will occur when the Antichrist declares himself to be God.  Central to the Abomination is the image of the Beast (Antichrist) which will be a statue (image or idol) which will be in the temple (rebuilt-Jerusalem).  “He (False Prophet)…telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast (Antichrist)…He was granted power to give breath to the image so that it should speak and cause as many as would not worship the image to be killed.”  (Rev. 13:14-15) The Antichrist will require people to take a mark (mark of the Beast 666) on their right hand or forehead.  Those who refuse to take the mark will not be allowed to buy or sell necessities of life.  (Rev. 13:16-17)

d.     The timing of the Abomination of Desolation will occur in conjunction to Jesus taking the scroll and opening the seven seals found in Revelation 5:8.  When the bowls of prayer are full, Jesus opens the first seal.  In other words, when the prayer movement is mature worldwide.   The 7 seals, trumpets, and bowls are released by Jesus the Lamb of God.  (Rev. 5:5, 6:1, 8:1)  These judgments have a 3-fold purpose:  to warn God’s enemy of coming judgment, warning the lost to receive salvation, and to signal victory for God’s people.  Promise of protection for the saints (believers) in the End Times (Zeph. 2:3, Mic. 7:14-19, Isa. 11:15-16, Rev. 7:3) 

                                                    i.     Seven seals. (Rev. 6)

1.      First Seal (White Horse):  Antichrist’s political aggression

2.      Second  Seal (Red Horse):  bloodshed and World War

3.      Third Seal (Black Horse):  famine and economic crisis

4.      Fourth Seal (Pale Horse):  disease and death to ¼ of the earth

5.      Fifth Seal (Prayer Movement):  releasing God’s judgments and martyrs

6.      Sixth Seal (Cosmic Disturbances):  natural atmosphere-cosmic crisis

7.      Seventh Seal (Anointed Prayer):  angel gives incense to enhance the End-Time prayer movement that contributes to releasing the Trumpets.

                                                   ii.     Seven Trumpets. (Rev. 8-9) 

1.      First Trumpet (Food Supply):  Burning 1/3 of the earth’s vegetation

2.      Second Trumpet (Food Supply): Destroying 1/3 of the earth’s seas

3.      Third Trumpet (Water Supply): Poisoning 1/3 of the earth’s fresh water

4.      Fourth Trumpet (Light, Energy): Darkening 1/3 of the earth’s light

5.      Fifth Trumpet (Torment); Release of a locusts plague

6.      Sixth Trumpet (Death):  1/3 of the earth’s population killed

7.      Seventh Trumpet (Rev. 11) The Rapture of the Church to meet Jesus in the sky??  What is the Rapture?  “We who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” (1 Thess. 4:17) “The seventh angel sounded…the kingdoms of the world have become the kingdoms of our Lord…You have taken Your power and reigned.”  The believer’s judgment is found during the seventh trumpet.  “We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed…in a moment...at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised.”  (1 Cor. 15:51-52) Immediately after the tribulation…(Matt. 24:29)  See 1 Thess. 2:1-8

                                                  iii.     Seven Bowls in Revelation 16 (Recall the ten plagues of Egypt)

1.      First Bowl:  sores to the Antichrist worshippers

2.      Second Bowl:  sea turns to blood and kills all in the sea

3.      Third Bowl:  all the fresh water turns to blood

4.      Fourth Bowl:  scorching heat and fire from the sun

5.      Fifth Bowl:  darkness on the Antichrist’s global empire

6.      Sixth Bowl:  demons lure the nations to Armageddon

7.      Seventh Bowl:  worst earthquake, 120 pound hail stones

II.               Believers are Protected and Will Overcome.  “They overcame him (Antichrist) by the blood of the Lamb, the power of their testimony, and they did not love their lives even unto death.”  Rev. 12:11

a.      God will manifest His provision and protection for His bride like He did in the Exodus.  God provided all the needs of His people as they journeyed through the wilderness.  “As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them miracles.”  (Mic. 7:15)  “Do not harm the earth or the sea until we have sealed the bond servants our God.”  (Rev. 7:3) 

b.      Believers will call out to the Lord.  “Keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place.”  (Luke 21:36)

c.      VOW:  “Lord, I have heard of Your fame; I stand in awe of Your deeds, O Lord.  Revive Your works in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.”  (Hab. 3:2)
