Agreement – Heartfelt Crusade
AGREEMENT BRINGS RESULTS
Amos 3:3-8 (Amplified) Do two walk together except they make an appointment and have agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest when he has no prey? Will a young lion cry out of his den if he has taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth where there is no trap for him? Does a trap spring up from the ground when nothing at all has sprung it? Shall a trumpet be blown in the city and the people not be alarmed and afraid? Shall misfortune or evil occur [as punishment] and the Lord has not caused it? Surely the Lord God will do nothing without revealing His secret to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?
Two together must be in agreement. For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. Everything that goes up must come down. Psalm 42:7 says that the deep calls to the deep at the shout of the water sprouts. When there is a sound in the heaven you must obey. David asked if he must go up against his enemy and God says that he cannot go up before he does not hear the sound of the wind in the Mulberry Trees. If there is something happening something must react to it. There is a deep in you that cry out to the deep in God. If you called out and there was no God to answer, it does not help. We must realize that thing is not just happening, but there must be two that stand together in agreement and that will bring results. Some sort of power works with authority and that brings result. You do not have to pray and waste God’s time and your breath. You do not have to pray and never see the results of what you are praying for. Most Christians pray because of habit. What if the prayers that you pray are suddenly being answered? Hebrews 11:6 says that he that goes to God must believe that He is and a rewarder of them that diligently seeks Him. God is that I AM God that always do far above and beyond what you can think and pray for. Why do people seek God if they cannot see results? We are not busy with a gimmick, but we serve a Living God that answers prayers. Sometimes we need to make only little adjustments and we will see the results.
When God created with power and authority He stretched out His Hands. God’s creation is His handiwork. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth as a combined unit. It means there was a oneness, and agreement, a unity or togetherness. God spoke and things were created although everything is the works of His Hands. There were the Hands of God and His Words that worked together and created heaven and earth. God placed man on the earth and gave him power and authority over everything on earth and in heaven to rule and has dominion and subdues everything(Genesis 1:26-28, 2:7). Man lost the authority because He did not listen to the voice of God, but listen to the devil. In Psalm 8 he says that he behold the works of God’s Hands and asks what is man that God is mindful of him. God crowned him with glory and honor and gave him authority and power to rule over God’s handiwork. God’s handiwork is the heaven and earth and everything in and on it. Man is crying out to get the power and authority back to rule.
Isaiah 48:12 (Amplified) Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel, My called [ones]: I am He; I am the First, I also am the Last.
When you go to God, you must believe that He is and the rewarder of them that earnestly seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). God is the I AM God. He is the Beginning and the End. In between there can be a doctor that tells you that you have cancer, but God has the last say. The final Word comes from God. God is the First and He is the Last. In the beginning God created the heaven and earth with His Word. John 1:1 says that the Word was in the beginning. He is the First Word and He is the Last Word and in the middle can be other words, but it is not the final Word. If there comes agreement, you get results.
Isaiah 48:13 (Amplified) Yes, My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has spread out the heavens; when I call to them, they stand forth TOGETHER [to execute My decrees].
God calls to the heaven and earth and they stands in agreement and that brings the execution of His decrees. The decree is made where there is a togetherness.
When we pray the Our Father, it says let Your Kingdom come and Your Will be done on earth as it is in the heaven. There must come an agreement and then we will see the results.
GO, SAY AND DO
In Psalm 8 he cries out to God that man must get back the power and the authority. In Luke 4 God sends His Son to the earth. Jesus went to the desert to be tempted by Satan. Satan came and told Jesus to turn the stones into bread, but Jesus said that it is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from God’s mouth. Satan then told Him to worship him and he would give Him all the Kingdoms of the world and its glory. Jesus said that you would only worship God and serve Him. First it is the Word and second the authority. Jesus came out of the tomb in Matthew 28:18,19 and said that all authority in heaven and on earth is being given Him and He gives it now to us to go and do and say. As you go you must say that the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. Then you must do. You must raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and heal the sick.
Psalm 110:1-3(a),5 (Amplified) THE LORD (God) SAYS to my Lord (the Messiah), Sit at My RIGHT HAND, until I make Your adversaries Your footstool. The Lord will send forth from Zion the scepter of Your strength; rule, then, in the midst of Your foes. Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power…
The Lord at Your right hand will shatter kings in the day of His indignation.
Heaven and earth agrees. The right hand of God, His handiwork and His Word makes power and authority available that brings results. Two cannot walk together unless they agreed. Mark 16:16-20says that he that believes and being baptized shall be saved. To them that believe these signs shall follow. They shall speak in other tongues. They shall lay hands and they shall recover. Then they went everywhere and preached the Word and the LORD worked with them with signs following. God’s Word and Hands work together. When they agree it shall be so. God said that there must be light and there was light.
Mark 16:19-20 (Amplified) So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and He sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the attesting signs and miracles that closely accompanied [it]. Amen (so be it).
If God did not said to the LORD to sit at His Right Hand, we would not see the power and authority restored where heaven and earth would be in agreement. Normal people like us can go out and speak and see results, lay hands and see results. Jesus came to earth and got the authority back and go back to heaven. The stuff that He got back on the earth is now restored in the heaven. They are in agreement again. We can now see the power of God.
Acts 2:1 (KJV) And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
There was unity and agreement and all power could be released. Then the Holy Spirit came and they started to speak.
JESUS IS THE RIGHT HAND
Acts 2:22-23,32-36 (Amplified) You men of Israel, listen to what I have to say: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man accredited and pointed out and shown forth and commended and attested to you by God by the mighty works and [the power of performing] wonders and signs which God worked through Him [right] in your midst, as you yourselves know. This Jesus, when delivered up according to the definite and fixed purpose and settled plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and put out of the way [killing Him] by the hands of lawless and wicked men.
This Jesus God raised up, and of that all we [His disciples] are witnesses. Being therefore lifted high by and to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promised [blessing which is the] Holy Spirit, He has made this outpouring which you yourselves both see and hear. For David did not ascend into the heavens; yet he himself says, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand and share My throne Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet. Therefore let the whole house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt and acknowledge assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ (the Messiah)-this Jesus Whom you crucified.
Jesus came to earth to take back what was lost in the garden. Satan tempted with it and Jesus told him that you live by the Word and the Hand of God. Jesus got it back and told them so after He rose from the dead. He went to the Right Hand of God and restored the Right Hand position. After He restored it, He poured out the Holy Spirit. All power and authority in now ours, because heaven and earth now stands in agreement. Whatever we now ask we shall receive. The disciples went on and preached all over and the LORD worked with them confirming the Word with signs following, because He is now the Right Hand Man of God. He was made LORD. The people will be only volunteers when the power is released.
Luke 22:66,67 (Amplified) As soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes; and they led Him into their council (the Sanhedrin), and they said: “If You are the Christ (the Messiah), tell us. But He said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe (trust in, cleave to, and rely on what I say).”
Jesus was crucified, but was raised and seated at the Right Hand of God and now He is LORD. The LORD said to the LORD and His Christ to sit at His Right Hand. LORD means supreme Ruler and Authority. Christ is supreme Anointing. Jesus came into a place of total Anointing and Authority. Therefor heaven and earth can stand in agreement and the people on earth can have anything they want.
Luke 22:70 (Amplified) If You are the Christ (the Messiah), tell us. But He said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe (trust in, cleave to, and rely on what I say), And if I question you, you will not answer. But hereafter (from this time on), the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God. And they all said, You are the Son of God, then? And He said to them, It is just as you say; I AM.
Jesus told them that the Son of Man is seated at the Right Hand and not the Son of God. He was talking about us. The Right Hand talks about power. We were once dead in our trespasses and sins, but God now raised us up together with Christ and seated us together with Him at the Right Hand of power in heavenly places (Ephesians 2). That is the place of all authority and anointing. God has given it into the hands of man again. Isaiah 66:1 says that the heavens is the throne of God and the earth is His footstool. The throne is now right here in our midst.
When Moses and the Israelites came before the Red Sea, they could not go back because the Egyptians were behind them. They could not go forward because the Sea was before them. Most Christians in that position wants to fly away. God said that he that waits upon the LORD, shall renew their strength and run and not be weary and walk and not faint. The victory comes in rising or mounting up on the wind of the Holy Spirit. You get out of the situation by running and walking with God’s strength. You cannot fly away from the situation, because you need a miracle. Moses told the Israelites to stand still and see the salvation of the LORD.
Exodus 15:1-6 (Amplified) THEN MOSES and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord, saying, I will sing to the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider or its chariot has He thrown into the sea. The LORD is my Strength and my Song, and He has become my Salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him. The LORD is a Man of War; the Lord is His name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has He cast into the sea; his chosen captains also are sunk in the Red Sea. The floods cover them; they sank in the depths [clad in mail] like a stone. Your RIGHT HAND, O Lord, is glorious in power; Your RIGHT HAND, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
God stretches out His Right Hand and you will rule in the midst of your enemies.
Exodus 15:7-12 (Amplified) In the greatness of Your majesty You overthrow those rising against You. You send forth Your fury; it consumes them like stubble. With the blast of Your nostrils the waters piled up, the floods stood fixed in a heap, the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my desire shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. You [Lord] blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; [clad in mail] they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders? You stretched out Your RIGHT HAND, the earth’s [sea] swallowed them.
The Right Hand of God speaks of heaven and earth in agreement. Jesus came to earth from heaven. He came as Messiah and Savior, but also as the Right Hand. Isaiah 59, 54 say that no weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against you, you shall condemn. God saw that the truth was vanished away from the earth and asked who can help Him. Then His own Right Hand came to bring salvation and He restored authority and power. He went back to heaven and seated Him at the place of power. God is Spirit. He creates with His Hands the heaven and earth. He speaks with His Mouth while His Hand is moving. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was made flesh. God stretched out His Right Hand or the Word that was made flesh to earth and restored authority. He pulled back His Hand into heaven to the place of power. Son of man is now restored back to the place of power and whatever man touches and says, he can have.
Mark 16 says that if you believe, you can speak and see results when you do. Jesus restored the power and the authority. Heaven and earth stands together and the decree is made. It is the statement you make and see it coming to pass. You decree to be out of dept before the end of June. The decree must be executed when heaven and earth comes in agreement. It comes when God calls and you realize that heaven and earth is God’s handiwork. You must realize that you are supposed to have the authority and power. That is possible because Jesus is now at the right Hand of God and you are seated with Him. You can speak and do. You can see the results.
GOD WITH US TO DO THE WORK
The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and became very bold. Peter and John went to the place where they were praying and passed the gate called Beautiful. There was a lame man begging and although they didn’t have any money, they had the promise of the Holy Spirit. They know that if they believe, they can lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. When they asked Peter by what power he made the man whole, he said that Jesus, Whom they crucified, was raised to the Right Hand Place and now they could do what they saw. They were warned not to speak in that Name again.
Acts 4:24-31,33 (Amplified) And when they heard it, lifted their voices together with one united mind to God and said, O Sovereign Lord, You are He Who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything that is in them. Who by the mouth of our forefather David, Your servant and child, said through the Holy Spirit, Why did the heathen (Gentiles) become wanton and insolent and rage, and the people imagine and study and plan vain (fruitless) things [that will not succeed]? The kings of the earth took their stand in array [for attack] and the rulers were assembled and combined together against the Lord and against His Anointed (Christ, the Messiah). For in this city there actually met and plotted together against Your holy Child and Servant Jesus, Whom You consecrated by anointing, both Herod and Pontius Pilate with the Gentiles and peoples of Israel, To carry out all that Your HAND and Your will and purpose had predestined (predetermined) should occur. And now, Lord, observe their threats and grant to Your bond servants [full freedom] to declare (SPEAK) Your message fearlessly, While You stretch out Your HAND to cure and to perform signs and wonders through the authority and by the power of the name of Your holy Child and Servant Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place in which they were assembled was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they continued to SPEAK the Word of God with freedom and boldness and courage.
And with great strength and ability and power the apostles delivered their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace (loving-kindness and favor and goodwill) rested richly upon them all.
The prayer that they prayed about the Hand of God that must be stretched out is Jesus that came into their midst. The LORD worked with them. The apostles told the Sanhedrin that they must not look at them. It was not their good works or holiness that healed that man, but it is faith in the Name. They only did what He said, but He was the One that did the work. All authority in heaven and on earth was given to Jesus and He gave it to us. He says that He will be with us. The LORD Jesus Christ is in our midst to do the works. We do not have to labor to get the cancers healed, but He is in our midst to do the work. We only speak the Word and stretch out the hands. Heaven and earth’s authority was restored by the Son of Man at Right Hand of power.
Matthew 18:18-20 (Amplified) Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful ON EARTH must be what is already permitted in heaven. Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father IN HEAVEN. For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the MIDST OF THEM.
If any two stands together and agree, by touching it shall be done from the Father in heaven. The words and the hands come together in agreement and it is done on earth from the heaven. While we do it on earth the Father in heaven is stretching out His Hand and confirming the Word. Jesus is in our midst when we agree and the LORD work the signs, wonders and miracles.
NO FAITH, BUT STILL AGREE
In Acts 12 when James and John were killed and it pleased the people. They also took Peter to prison to kill him the next day. They left him for a few days and the night he slept between the guards. The rest of the disciples were in consistent and persistent prayer together.
Without faith you cannot please God. What if your faith fail and you stretch out your hand and there is no faith, but fear grips you.
The disciples were praying without much faith. An angel woke Peter up and led him out of the prison. He thought that he was in a vision, but outside the city he realized it was real. He found himself at the gate of the place where the disciples were in continual prayer. Peter came and knocked on the door, but only a girl heard him. When she heard that it was Peter, she tried to get the other to come to the door, but they did not believe that their prayers were answered. They thought that she was crazy. Sometimes our prayers are answered, but we still go on and miss the opportunity. Eventually they listened to her after they thought that he was a ghost. They were shocked about the fact that their prayers were answered when they stood in agreement. If two stands in agreement and they do not have faith power is released to get the thing done on earth. When heaven and earth comes in agreement, the decree is made and you get what you want.
Thank You Jesus!
