BELOVED, IN THIS ARTICLE BELOW WHEN YOU SEE THESE CAPITAL LETTERS IN A NOTE, IT WILL BE MY NOTE TO YOU FOR THAT PART OF "THIS PRESENT GLORY, PART I".
I WILL BE BRINGING YOU EXCERPTS OF MY NOTES FROM MY PASTOR'S TEACHING THAT WAS DONE ABOUT A YEAR AGO AT A CAMPMEETING. WHEN MY PASTORS RODNEY AND ADONICA HOWARD-BROWNE MINISTER AT OUR CHURCH OR ANYWHERE ELSE, IT IS A "NOW" WORD, AND I GRAB ONTO THEIR MESSAGE. IT BECOMES MINE TO PREACH.
THIS PAST YEAR I HAVE BROUGHT YOU THINGS I GOT IN ME AS A RESULT OF THE LAST YEAR'S CAMPMEETING MESSAGE. BUT NOW I AM LED TO BRING ALL OF IT IN PARTS TO YOU SO YOU CAN ALSO SEE HOW IT IS A MESSAGE FOR YOU TO GRAB HOLD OF FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. "This Present Glory, Part II" WILL COME TO YOU VIA THIS "Glory Brides Global List" ON In Jesus AS I AM LED.
BELOVED, I KNOW YOU HEAR ABOUT THE GLORY ALL THE TIME. BUT I SEE AND PARTAKE AT MY CHURCH AND IN MY LIFE OF "THIS PRESENT GLORY!" WITH THE SIGNS AND WONDERS ONE HAS WHEN IN THIS GLORY OF GOD, PSALM 91 LIFE. I'VE A TESTIMONY FOR ME AND MINE BECAUSE WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE THE LEADERSHIP TEACHING US THAT ARE THEMSELVES LIVING IN THE GLORY.
THERE IS JOY ALL OVER THE CHURCH I ATTEND EXPRESSED IN LAUGHTER, TEARS AND MORE, AS HOLY GHOST GRABS HOLD OF HURTING HEARTS AND SETS THEM FREE TO BE WHO GOD CREATED THEM TO BE. RELIGION FLEES FROM THIS PLACE WHERE I WORSHIP, FOR NO RELIGIOUS PHARISEE CAN TOLERATE THE FREEDOM, JOY AND LOVE OF THE HOLY GHOST IN THIS PLACE I CALL MY HOME CHURCH.
BELOVED, WHERE GOD SENT ME OVER A YEAR AGO NOW TO WORSHIP IS A PLACE THAT IS TOTALLY OF GOD, AND A PLACE WHERE OTHER CHURCH PASTORS AND MINISTERS OF MINISTRIES ALONG WITH OTHER BELOVED COME FOR A REFRESHING IN THE RIVER OF GOD. I HAVE WATCHED THE BRETHREN CHANGE ALONG WITH MYSELF AND THE CHANGES HOLY SPIRIT HAS MADE IN ME. THE JOY AND SIGNS AND WONDERS THERE ARE ALL OF GOD, FOR NO MAN COULD DO WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE BRETHREN VISITING US AND TO THOSE WHO GO TO CHURCH WITH ME.
I GET IN ME IT IS FOR THE BELOVED AND IT IS FOR "NOW", FOR IT IS "THIS PRESENT GLORY - FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS."
Love & Blessings,
P.S. I pray you will read each word and not say, "Oh, I know that scripture." It is the Word that sets us free, so do not miss one dot nor tittle of the Word OR OF THE anointing on my pastor to present this revelation of the Word to you - for such a time as this.
THIS PRESENT GLORY
If you remember well as I do, several years ago everybody was focusing on this present darkness with all the spiritual warfare stuff going on. But now I want to focus on this present glory for I see new and as I share the below I pray you will too. For such a time as this.
Ephesians 1:17 - 2:6 (The Amplified Bible) “1:17 [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, 18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), 19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, 20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places], 21 Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come. 22 And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], 23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself]. 2:1 And you [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins, 2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God]. 3 Among these we as well as you once lived and conducted ourselves in the passions of our flesh [our behavior governed by our corrupt and sensual nature], obeying the impulses of the flesh and the thoughts of the mind [our cravings dictated by our senses and our dark imaginings]. We were then by nature children of [God’s] wrath and heirs of [His] indignation, like the rest of mankind. 4 But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us, 5 Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for] it is by grace (His favor and mercy which you did not deserve) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation). 6 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”
I want to ask you a question beginning this series this morning. What world are you living in? What world are you living in? We’ve traveled all over the world and you find people, and especially I’m focusing on the United States, because that’s where we are. I can’t even believe that some people are actually living in the same planet I’m living in. Some people are living in a make-believe world. A bunch of spiritual mumbo jumbo that they’ve concocted up over the years. Living in a realm of depression and defeat and death, and doom and gloom. I mean, I want to go in and give a salvation message, and get them saved, hello! Somebody said, “Brother Rodney, the devil’s attacking me.” Well, how about you get saved, full of the Holy Ghost, and attack him? Does that sound like a good idea?
BELOVED, THIS IS KEY. IF WE ARE SAVED AND FULL OF THE HOLY GHOST AND "FIRE" (THE "FIRE" IS KEY HERE, FOR MANY ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST BUT LACK THE "FIRE" OF GOD) - WHEN WE HAVE THE FIRE OF GOD IN US, WE WILL BE THE ONES FROM WHOM THE DEVIL FLEES. AMEN!
ONE OF THE WHYS OF THE DEVIL FLEEING FROM US IS: BECAUSE WE LIVE IN THAT PSALM 91 "SECRET PLACE" OF LOVE AND TRUST IN GOD THAT BRINGS SUCH PEACE, FEAR IS NOWHERE NEAR US, AND WE NEVER NEED A PILL TO GO TO SLEEP SINCE WE JUST LAY OUR HEAD ON OUR PILLOW AND SLEEP OVERTAKES US. NOR DO PSALM 91 BELOVED NEED TO MEET TO "GET HELP" FROM OUR LEADERSHIP, BECAUSE WE CAN HEAR FROM GOD OURSELVES. WE ARE THE BELOVED WHO "LIVE" IN GOD'S WORD. AMEN.
What world are you living in? You can either live in the kingdom of darkness, or you can live in the kingdom of light. The choice is yours. You can either live before the Cross of Christ, or you can come through the Cross into Pentecost and live in resurrection life. The choice is yours. In Deuteronomy 30 and verse 19 God says, “I record before heaven and earth this day that I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life.” [ - God never said, “Choose death.” Choose life! Choose life! - ] “That both you and your seed may live.”
We need to come to the power of the empty tomb, the empty Cross and the occupied Throne, and realize exactly all that Heaven has purchased for us through the finished work of the Cross and by the shed Blood of Jesus. And it’s because of His grace and His mercy and His favor and His lovingkindness that has been extended towards us. That yes, we were part of the devil’s kingdom, yes, we were under the control of demon spirits, yes, we were subject to forces of darkness, but He has come, He has saved us, He has washed us in His Blood. We have been taken out of darkness into light! Our life is now hid with Christ in God! We’re not living in that other realm. We’ve left that realm. We have forsaken that realm. We’ve stepped over from darkness into the glory.
I, JOAN ANN, USED TO BE A LEADER OF THOSE IN MY COUNTY WHO DID SPIRITUAL WARFARE. I KNOW WHERE I HAVE COME FROM, AND WHERE I HAVE GONE TO IN THE PSALM 91 "SECRET PLACE." I NOW GO WINNING SOULS MOST DAYS OF THE WEEK SO THE EVIL OVER THE TOWN WILL LEAVE WHEN THE DEVILS ARE CHASED OUT BY THE SOULS BEING WON AND SET FREE OF DEVILS THAT ARE OVER THE TOWN IN THOSE WAITING FOR A "JOAN ANN" OR "SOMEONE" TO LEAD THEM IN THE SALVATION PRAYER. READ MY "SCRIPT" I USE TO WIN SOULS FOUND ON MY WEBSITE WWW.GLORYBRIDESGLOBAL.COM IT IS ANOINTED OF GOD.
IT IS SUCH A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE, AFTER THE DAYS OF GOING TO DO SPIRITUAL WARFARE WHEN ALL THE WHILE IT WAS I WHO NEEDED TO KNOW THAT JESUS DID IT ALL. I REST IN PSALM 91 NOW AND WATCH GOD DO IT ALL THROUGH ME, AND THIS IS THE PLACE OF "THIS PRESENT GLORY" LIFE I HAVE CHOSEN.
Now I know people get very excited about it because they don’t want to hear about it. They want to hear about how dark the world is so they can have an excuse. I can have an excuse for my depression; I can have an excuse for my failure. I can have an excuse for the storms that have come against my life and have wreaked havoc. I’m telling you maybe you should start a few storms yourself and wreak havoc on the devil’s kingdom. If only the church would wake up, and only the church would realize what it has! Oh, I tell you there’s no stopping the church when it wakes up!
See, most people think this is just stuff you preach. It makes good preaching, but they don’t want to live it. “I tell you, that’s good preaching. Hallelujah!” Well, it’s good living, too. It’s good living, too. If you talk to some people, they’re walking around in this mode: “I’m telling you, I’m believing God for my deliverance, you know. One of these days I’m gonna cross over Jordan to Canaan’s fair land. Won’t it be wonderful there, having no burdens to bear, and joy bells are ringing, angels are singing. Won’t it be wonderful there! On Jordan’s stormy banks I stand and cast a wistful eye to Canaan’s fair and happy land where my possessions lie. It’ll be worth it all when we see Jesus. Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Christ. Farther along we’ll know all about it. Farther along we’ll understand why. Cheer up, my brother. Live in the sunshine. We’ll understand it all bye and bye.”
If you look at the church in America, you think they’re asking Jesus to come back and hang on the Cross. “Come and die again. You didn’t do a good job the first time. Come and hang on the Cross. Come and really pay the price for my sin. Come and really deliver me.” They have no revelation; their eyes are darkened. Their minds have been blinded by religious tradition that has roared through this nation like a stream of gutter filth and has bound churches and held them captive for so long, churches that have just become puny little charismatic, Peewee Herman-type believer groups. Can’t even get out of bed in the morning cause the forces of darkness are coming round them, and did you feel the oppression last night, and other horror stories. They’ve never come into a revelation of what took place at Calvary. They haven’t ever seen. There’s always this battle. Yes, there is a battle, and we’re gonna talk about it. There is a battle, and there are things that you battle, but it’s not in the place that people are battling them. And that’s why as the years go by, they’re still in a constant battle, cause they’re battling in the wrong realm.
First of all, it’s futile to fight an enemy that’s already defeated. “Well, we’re going to launch a major war and we’re going to launch a major onslaught. Let’s go and get; we’re gonna” – he’s already been done defeated! Jesus did a wonderful job of that.
JOAN ANN'S NOTE:
BELOVED, I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MANY OF THE BELOVED IN THE CHURCH ARE STILL GOING HERE AND GOING THERE TO TAKE THE LAND BY SPIRITUAL-WARFARE THINGS THEY PLAN TO DO WHEN THEY GET TO THIS PLACE HERE AND THERE. YOU ONLY GO TO A PLACE TO ASK PEOPLE TO RECEIVE JESUS IN THEIR HEART AND BE SAVED. WHEN THE SOULS ARE WON IN A PLACE HERE AND THERE, THAT IS WHEN THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE WILL HAVE GONE. IT IS THE PEOPLE IN AN AREA WITH "SPIRITS" THAT MAKE THE "SPIRITS OVER THE AREA". SET THE PEOPLE FREE BY "GOING, TELLING THE GOSPEL OF SALVATION" AND THE AREA WILL BE FREE! DAH!
Colossians 2:15 “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
The devil is already defeated, whether you believe it or not. I mean he is. I know that comes as a severe blow to several people here this morning. Maybe we should just bow our heads in a few moments of silence at the loss of your dear beloved. You know what the thing is – the devil’s been defeated, but most believers haven’t.
BELOVED, THANK YOU FOR READING THIS PART I OF "THIS PRESENT GLORY" IN ITS ENTIRETY. I PRAY YOU WILL GO FROM GLORY TO GLORY FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. WATCH FOR "THIS PRESENT GLORY, PART II".
LOVE & BLESSINGS,
