Report on the January GOGCC Prayer Meeting at IPR Churchby Daniel DeMiranda on January 24, 2020
On Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020,
Various churches of Cape Cod came together in one accord, to worship, pray, and seek the Lord at the GOGCC meeting at IPR Cape Cod Church
After a passionate moment of worship, Dr. Riad summarized the vision behind the GOGCC movement, reminding us that Revival on Cape Cod is on God’s agenda. It will happen.
Daniel de Miranda shared a word on Sanctification that is very important for the body of Christ on Cape Cod and New England to take heed: God wants to release the Fire of Revival, but there is a positioning required for the fire to come. Here is a summary of Daniel’s word:
Glory of God on Cape Cod - IPR Cape Cod Church - January 22nd, 2020
Dictionary: Sanctification (or in its verbal form, sanctify) literally means the process by which something or someone is separated specifically for a religious use or purpose, that is, making it sacred or consecrating.
To summarize: Holiness is the manifestation of the character of God.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit, and those who worship him should worship him in spirit and in truth.
Spirit describes the nature of God
What kind of spirit? There are: evil spirits, spirits of death, spirits of prostitution, spirits of vice, what differentiates the Spirit of God from other spirits?
Every spirit has a character. God's character is HOLY.
THAT'S WHY THE NAME OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THE THIRD PERSON OF THE TRINITY AND WHO HABITS WITHIN US IS A HOLY SPIRIT.
It differs our God from any other god or spirit,
* because his Holiness is eternal,
* before everything was created He was already Holy. He is unique, there is no one like Him.
You and I are in the process of purifying and cleaning,
we live in a sinful world, but we do not belong to this world.
Leviticus 6:10 And the priest will put on his linen garment, and he will put on linen trousers on his flesh, and he will lift up the ash, when the fire has consumed the burnt offering on the altar, and he will put it by the altar.
Leviticus 6:11 Then he will take off his clothes, and put on other clothes, and take the ash out of the camp to a clean place.
Leviticus 6:12 The fire on the altar will burn on it, it will not go out; but the priest shall light firewood in it each morning, and put the burnt offering in order, and burn the fat of the peace offerings on it.
Leviticus 6:13 The fire will burn continually on the altar; it won't go out.
Clean robes. Linen robes. Robes changed.
It is natural that we as human beings are focused on the move of God. In the fire of God.
But God was always concerned with the altar.
Salvation came to us for free. Keeping the flame burning will cost you something. It is the priest's duty to keep the fire burning. Not God’s.
I am by no means saying that by maintaining a high standard of holiness you will inherit eternal life.
Salvation does not come from our works, that would not be good news of the kingdom, in fact if that were the standard, we would be chipped!
Salvation consists of this: We were lost in our sins, we all were going to hell, but God in his infinite mercy, sent his beloved son to die in my place and in your place, He paid the price for our lives, and today we are saved !
But I want to remind you that the very essence of your salvation is to live a lifetime obeying Jesus.
Romans 10: 9 says: For if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved;
Confess Jesus Christ as Lord. When you declare that someone is the LORD of your life. It makes you His servant, His slave. This confession has to be made not just once, but every day.
You are a priest.
1Peter 2: 9 But you are the chosen generation, the royal priesthood, the holy nation, the acquired people, that you may proclaim the virtues of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light;
Cleaning the ashes takes work, but if they are not cleaned, the fire will not start.
Do you want to keep the fire burning? You have to clean the ashes. Many of us wonder why the fire doesn’t catch more, but have we been cleaning the ashes?
The ashes speak of past experiences with God.
Our past experiences were certainly beautiful, they were certainly powerful, they certainly left their mark on our lives, but we cannot live on what we have experienced in the past.
1Peter 1:15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your ways of living,
1Peter 1:16 because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy.
The Word says that the Lord has engraved His Law on our hearts, but man's heart is deceitful.
He engraved the word on our hearts to know about his Law, but knowing is not enough, what have we done with what we know?
Romans 12: 1 I therefore beseech you, brothers, by the compassion of God, that you present your body in a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, which is your rational worship.
Romans 12: 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by renewing your understanding, so that you will experience what is the good, pleasant and perfect will of God.
He carved the word in our heart, but our rational worship is to offer ourselves as a living sacrifice.
Rational worship is putting into practice what you know.
The altar is our hearts, the offering is our lives, God will provide the fire.
Matthew 4:17 Since then, Jesus began to preach and say: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come.
A personal message that becomes corporate.
God calls us to Repentance. For us to become the message, and for the Kingdom of God to be established on Cape Cod.
1 Peter 1:12 ESV It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.”
In my understanding, the angels desired to preach the gospel.
Angels can carry a message, but never become a message!
You can become the message of Christ wherever you go!
2020 Plymouth celebrates 400 years.
400 years in the bible has a meaning of liberation, transformation and revival.
400 years the people were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt. At the end of 400 years, God raised up Moses bringing deliverance in great signs and wonders.
400 years of prophetic silence in Israel, and God raised up John the Baptist with a message of Repentance, baptizing many Jews and preparing the way for the Lord Jesus.
400 years since the foundation of New England, the region where America began, and which was consecrated to the Lord Jesus.
Home of the First Great Awakening with Johnathan Edwards and George Whitefield, where the church was "fat and lazy" according to historian records.
Where corn and cotton plantations and a vast slave market produced much wealth and prosperity for the people, and they entered a great comfort zone, leaving the Lord in the background.
Second Great Awakening with Charles Finney, born in Connecticut, a skeptical and incredulous lawyer, who made fun of the church for not even believing that God could answer their prayers. A big improbable. People said that if Charles Finney was converted, anyone would be converted.
One day Charles was baptized with the Holy Spirit in his office.
He received a very strong conviction from the Spirit and began to preach Repentance.
The fear of God fell on lives that began to repent of their sins and confess, leaving them. This resulted in a revival that reached 500,000 people!
Today, we are known as the land of the frozen chosen. But it is time to bring God's fire upon this place once again.
Vision: Upon the map of New England, the number 2020 written, and a lid was slid open by God. (The Heavens are open!)
A new time has come over New England! A new Era has come! Signs and wonders, healings, massive salvation is coming!
God wants to pour the fire on us Church, on Cape Cod, New England, but the priest's robes must be clean, and the altar must be clean.
Repent, for the Kingdom of God has come!
Robson Ferreira led an annointed prayer session, every one present joined hands around the whole temple of IPR Cape Cod Church, representing empty chairs of all churches on the Cape that will be filled with people in the mighty name of Jesus! Together we prophesied salvation on the Cape!
Led by the Spirit of God, Robson prayed for healings on physical body and the souls of everyone present.
Pastor Marcelo Pretti shared a powerful word on how he senses a mighty harvest is coming, and we must be ready and certain not to miss the harvest season. We must stay alert to be precise and accurate.
Pastor Earl Roberts closed the meeting reminding us we were blessed to truly know that the Lord was with us.
