Graham Cooke - Session 06 - National Prophecy - Sat 7pm

Given at Aglow International NZ Conference in Christchurch, March 2016. Delivered By: Graham Cooke, Member of Aglow International Board of Directors.

The Lord would say to this nation that He adores, "This is the place and this is the time of My choosing. This is the nation where I choose to do as I please. This is more than just your time, this is My time. This is My time in New Zealand, this is My time for New Zealand. This is My time and I will indulge My passion for My people even in your midst. I have measured you in times past, I have corrected you and changed your face. I have seen you on your knees and I have heard your prayers. Long years past, many generations have I seen kneeling and praying, grandmothers and mothers crying out, "Oh God, when? Oh God, when?" And the Lord says, "That 'when' is now. This is the day, this is the time of your rising. Behold I come to fulfil the dreams that I placed in the heart of all those intercessors for all those generations. The enemy has measured you for a coffin, but I have measured you for a blessing, and now it is time to open the rivers from the heights of heaven and pour out My Spirit upon all people in this nation.

"The enemy has measured you for a coffin, but I have measured you for a blessing, and now it is time to open the rivers from the heights of heaven and pour out My Spirit upon all people in this nation."

The water level is rising in this house, in this city, in this region, in this nation. I have promised many things to Myself in this country and in this city. I have come to do what I want, I have come to please Myself. I have come to indulge My passion for My people. This is My time, too. My beloved will know My presence. My beloved will feel a weight of blessing like a wave of water being poured out on the parched earth. This is no flash flood; the ancient dry river beds will be filled with water and will flow again throughout this nation. Places that knew, and lost, previous moves shall know a new refreshing and a continuous flow of blessing.

Beloved, with this new outpouring I require a new stewardship. I require that there shall be no partisan spirit but a partnership of Kingdom minded people. I require a partnership of fathers who will produce new works and develop the sons of heaven in this nation. This city, this region, this nation shall be a portrait of heaven, a visual aid to the lost, a house set on high where My glory shall be visible. You are my new poem, the craftsmanship of heaven that will overcome the religious spirit and join together as a corporate man. Many expressions of life; one Body in Christ.

"I require that there shall be no partisan spirit but a partnership of Kingdom minded people. I require a partnership of fathers who will produce new works and develop the sons of heaven in this nation."

Behold, the water level is rising and the place of healing is rising with it. Miracles and signs and wonders, and the raising of the dead to life - all things are possible in the river of My blessing. I'm taking the roof off of every church in this country. I'm taking the roof off of every church in this country. I will stand in your midst and sing a song over you and you shall know an open heaven and worship will increase as the glory of God descends. Many people will come to the waters for I am the fountain of life in your midst. I'm taking the roof off; I will not deny you anything, nor will I withhold. I will fill this land with blessing. I will soak the walls of every church, I will no longer, I can no longer, deny Myself; I will indulge Myself in this nation. I will sweep you off your feet, I will romance My beloved and a new intimacy will be released.

It is the time of dreaming because the time of longing is at an end. This is the time of dreaming and the longing of My heart for you will be indulged. The water level is rising, beloved, and my passion is rising with it. I will build My Throne in this nation. I will make this My home, I will smile upon you, sing over you, say "Yes" to all that you ask, say "Yes" to all the longings and dreams that I have placed within your heart. I give you permission to ask of Me. I AM is with you and permission is granted. I am saying"Yes" to your families, I am saying"Yes" to your children, I am saying "Yes" to your marriage, I am saying "Yes" to your finances, I am saying"Yes" to your prodigals, I am saying "Yes" to your promotion, I am saying "Yes" to your blessing, I am saying "yes" to your upgrade, I am saying "Yes" to your inheritance, I am saying "Yes" to your dreams, I am saying "Yes" to your anointing.

"The water level is rising, beloved, and my passion is rising with it. I will build My Throne in this nation. I will make this My home, I will smile upon you, sing over you, say "Yes" to all that you ask, say "Yes" to all the longings and dreams that I have placed within your heart."

I give you permission to be bold and to ask of Me. People under My anointing will travel through the land and they will cry out for the waste places and I will say "Yes". You will go into the ruined places of your cities, to the low places where the enemy lives, and you will cry out and I will say "Yes". You will lay your hands on abandoned factories and speak to Me, and I will say "Yes". Businesses will come from other nations and there shall be full employment in this nation. And when I answer you it is because I am saying "Yes" to My own desires and passions in your midst. When I say "Yes" to you it is because I have promised Myself. Heaven has come down and great joy will be released, and this shall be to you, as a nation, like the day of Israel's release from captivity in Egypt - deliverance from oppression, a coming out with the high hand of God, receiving the wealth of the wicked. This shall be like the day of the rebuilding of the temple, when My presence shall come down in such power that no one shall stand. This shall be like Pentecost, a mighty rushing wind, flames of fire, awe and wonder and astonishment in the hearts of this population.

The Lord would ask, "Beloved, does that sound too good to be true? Does it sound too good to be true? That's how you know it's Me, 'cause I put everything I am on this line before this nation. I've heard your prayers, I've collected your tears, and now this is your time and it is My time. Let's enjoy this time together."

I'm taking the roofs off cathedrals and churches, offices and stores and government buildings, an outpouring that is inescapable, and that changes a city and a region and a nation. You will come to a day when all opposition will tumble. Every wall raised against Me will crumble, it shall be as Jericho - not a judgement on people, but a dismantling of all that the enemy has raised up. And the Lord says, "I'm going on tour throughout this nation. I'm touring, I've got My bus, I'm touring throughout this nation and I'm pouring out springs of living water in the low places, in the high places. Downpours will come, basements will flood, and the enemy will be flushed out and exposed. There is no hiding place for the corrupt and the wicked, but the refreshing will find them out. Even as I shone My light on a rampaging Saul of Tarsus, so do I make My enemies My friends, My beloved. And this shall be a city and a nation renewed, reformed and resplendent. My arms are open wide to gather all into My house.

These are extraordinary times, beloved, when the wisdom of heaven will replace the intellect of man and I will create over you all the things that I long to see. Heaven will come down. My "Yes" is here,  My "Yes" is here, My "Yes" is here, My "Yes" is here and now, My "Yes" is here and now, My "Yes" is here and now. Ask Me, don't be slow in asking Me. It's time for joy and laughter. This is a time when tears will cease. The broken will be restored, and everything will live where the river flows, and you will hear Me laughing, and the sound of joy will fill the air, and the high place will be brought low, and the low place shall be raised up. Kings shall fall and new kings will appear, and My government shall come and the authority to rule will be released. There shall be no sound of mourning, there shall be no sound of grieving, there shall be no sound of crying, there shall be no sound of weeping and there shall be no sound of wailing. I will lift up the light of My countenance upon you and you will live under My smile. In this place of permission, ask of Me. Ask Me for your city. Ask Me from the place of dreaming, though. Align yourself with My passion, resonate with My heart.

"I will lift up the light of My countenance upon you and you will live under My smile. In this place of permission, ask of Me. Ask Me for your city. Ask Me from the place of dreaming, though. Align yourself with My passion, resonate with My heart."

To all those who long for intimacy, you shall be filled. To all those who want power without presence, I will not listen to you. Bow down and make a new alignment with Me or I shall take what you have built by your own hand and give it to another. The King has come and all rulers must bow. 

I'm taking the roof off and I'm pouring out a blessing that will wash the cities clean. The water level is rising, the water level is rising, the water level is rising in this nation and now you must learn to live and walk in abundance. You must learn to give, and not waste the fulness that I bestow upon you. I have measured you for a blessing that you cannot contain. You must let it flow out.

I have promised Myself many things in this nation and I will indulge Myself and My passion shall be unchecked. I come to this country to fulfil the dream of My heart", says the Lord, "as I answer the prayers of your heart." I come to fulfil My passion in this place, and so I tell you, "The water level is rising, the water level - it's rising, the water level - it's rising, the water level - it's rising, rising."

I come to fulfil My passion in this place, and so I tell you, "The water level is rising, the water level - it's rising, the water level - it's rising, the water level - it's rising, rising."

I'd like you to stand up, if you would. This is a crafted prayer I wrote for every believer, every church in this nation, and I give it to you humbly, and I just say, "Use it until the Lord gives you a better one." And when you get a better prayer, could you email it to me. That'd be good. Here we go...

So we say "Yes" to You, Lord. We affirm our intention shall be as Yours. We agree with heaven. We agree with heaven. Sweep us off our feet. Let us taste Your passion. Build Your Throne in our hearts. Let us see Your passion. Take the roof off. Yes, Lord, take the roof off. Take the roof off my house and my church and my business and the place where I work. Let the water level rise continuously until I am overwhelmed by the overflow, until we are overwhelmed by the overflow. Soak these walls, Lord, soak these walls. Soak these walls. Let this house, let this church be a sacred space. Do all that's on Your heart to do, we resonate with You. Do all that's on Your heart to do, we resonate with You. Do all that is on Your heart to do, we resonate with You.

Fill this place, fill our hearts, fill this place, fill our hearts, fill this place, fill our hearts. Let heaven come down and worship here. Let the sound of heaven be heard in this nation. Do unprecedented things, beyond our reasoning and beyond our imagination. O God, let a certain sound go out across the cities and the nation. Indulge Yourself, dear God. Let the rivers flow. Release permission, favour and blessing and your kind intention. Thank You for this living water, a fountain of life flowing within each of us, a river being outpoured, the water level rising.

We say "Yes" to all that You intend. May our purpose, our desire and placement be fully aligned with Your indulgence. We say, "Amen, may it be so." Thank You for measuring us for Your blessing. Raise up fathers across the nation who will steward this outpouring for the sake of the Kingdom and for the greater glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. In His Name we pray, amen, amen, amen.

 

Graham Cooke - Session 06 - Christchurch Prophecy - Sat 7pm

Given at Aglow International NZ Conference in Christchurch, March 2016. Delivered By: Graham Cooke, Member of Aglow International Board of Directors.

2016 Aglow International Conference Christchurch

The Lord is saying that Christchurch is a gateway city. It’s a gateway city to the Kingdom for this nation. It will not be the only gateway city but it will be the first. For there is a move of God already begun in this city, that from this city there will be an open heaven over the region. And the Lord would say, “To the depths of your devastation, so shall your rising be, for that which has been brought low shall in turn be lifted high. That which has been lost will return with greater interest because God is investing Himself in this city, God is investing Himself in this city, God is investing Himself in this city.

And there is a move of God already beginning upon key churches in this city who choose to act together as a catalyst for the nation. There is a white hot furnace of the Holy Spirit here in this place to burn up the dross of the nation, to break the power of passivity, to forge a new kind of church, one tempered by warfare, one strong in grace and the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is a breakthrough city so I declare a breakthrough time of preparation and resolve, ministries coming together to resolve, to bring in the Kingdom, to prepare the way of the Lord. This is a city that is growing up in the Spirit, this is a city that is growing up in the Spirit with a new Kingdom strategy for this nation. No more empires of man, but a Kingdom oneness. The water level’s rising in this city and there is an acceleration in the joy of the Lord in this place. There is an increase of momentum and there is an upgrade in majesty.

Storms will come. The enemy’s not going to exactly leave you alone. He has to attack this move, and that may be the dumbest thing that he does because there is a joy of battle in the heart of the Lord over this land. There is a joy of battle, a gleam of battle is in His eye over this land, and the joy of the Lord will increase your strength, and the Lord says that you will win battles that you have never fought before in this land. You will fight them now and you will win.

This is beyond a hope, this is faith, this is trust, and in battle there is a quickening spirit available to you. Ask for it, stand in it. Resist the enemy joyfully. Do not let your voice be heard in complaint or fear because God is driving those things out. Let the sound of worship, let the sound of rejoicing, let the sound of thanksgiving join with all of those around the Throne. Let the nation come alive, Christchurch, through your praise. Let songs be written in this city that will circle the globe. And in this storm recognize and know that the church is not under attack, but is actually coming under a weight of sovereignty and power. In the Kingdom you get power when you need it, and the best power comes when you’re under attack. That’s just the way the Kingdom works.

Christchurch will witness what Jehoshaphat experienced, that as worship goes forth in this city the enemy will come under the confusion of God and be brought low. There is a time of refreshing that is here right now, it’s riding the bus through this city, it’s walking through these streets. A time of refreshing is here now and it’s going to build. And in this time of refreshing the Lord says, “Wash off despair and fear, wash off your passivity and procrastination and be invigorated.” This move of the Spirit will remove the religious spirit from the Body of Christ and the enemy will no longer be able to hide in your midst and influence people, as in days gone by. But you will gain a new lens, you will receive the mind of Christ, you will develop a new vocabulary in the Spirit. The language of the Kingdom shall be heard first in this city.

Prepare the way of the Lord. Gather up the rocks and the hard places in your midst. Make the way smooth, make the way smooth by your loving kindness to one another, by your worship and by your rejoicing, by your oneness and by your unity. This is your time, a time of unprecedented, unparalleled favour of God on this city. Don’t waste it, don’t abuse it, but release favour and blessing and it will come back to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over. No place in this city will be untouched, no heart will be unchanged. Hear the word of the Lord.

Father I thank You. Thank You for Your intention for this gateway city, for this is the year of our rising, this is the year of our rising, and what happens here will spread throughout the land, and other gateway cities will emerge. Thank You. Thank You that this nation will be a sign and a wonder, a sign and a wonder. People will come just to sit under the Kingdom, under that unity, under that permission and that favour and that unprecedented blessing so they can take it back to where they live, and we will see thousands of men and women, young and old, packing their cases in this country, exporting that blessing and that permission into other lands and other cities, and the fire will build around the earth.

Father I bless You for Your intention towards this wonderful country, and I do believe, Lord, that this is the stuff of dreams. Israel said, when they came out of captivity, “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion we were like those who dream.”  We are pinching ourselves. Really? Us? Here? Now? Me? Me? My family? My neighborhoods? My city? My Town? This church? Us? Really? These are the days of dreaming in our midst.

We’ve not seen the Kingdom until things are happening that are too good to be true. When things that are too good to be true become normal the Kingdom is in our midst. 5,000 people fed with a couple of fish sandwiches, people paying their taxes by going fishing – we’ll all be buying fishing rods tomorrow. Unprecedented things happening. Get ready, beloved, because you’re about to experience the true normal, the true normal of the Christ life.

Rudy Oversluizen: “Baptism with FIRE”

From the 2013 Leadership Summit, Rudy Oversluizen spoke on “Baptism with FIRE” He reminded us that we cannot choose between the Spirit and fire, there is one baptism, we are baptised with WATER, AND with FIRE!! Ponder that one!

 

Robyn MacFarlane: "Royal Call"

From the 2013 Leadershp Summit, Robyn MacFarlane spoke on our “Royal Call”. We are a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation, created for glory, we are God’s Masterpiece, a chosen generation. Some may say we have heard this before, but just because we had dinner last night, it doesn't mean we don't need to eat again tonight. How wonderful that we can hear and choose to live in these Truths day in and day out.

 

Kevin Hight: Love, Fire, Joy

From the 2013 Leadershp Summit, Kevin Hight reminded us that we are carriers of the resurrected Christ, and carriers of revival. Kevin expanded our thinking on 2 Tim 1:7. He spoke of walking in the power of unconditional LOVE, Holy Spirit FIRE and Jesus' JOY. Kevin brought a personal and timely word for Aglow corporately, and for each person present. It was great to hear the speakers words dovetailing, as if the Lord was saying, "I have repeated that... did you receive it"?
