Dimension of the Anointing ( Nov 15, 2013 )

Celebration Church, Salinas, California. Pastored by Terry Green

  1. Vacuum in ministry
    • Currently providing good music, good preaching
    • But, what got most of us here is the Glory of God
  2. Moving into restorative
    • God starts to release the next stage of his Glory
  3. Progression of Service

      • Receive and Celebrated
    • —–>Glory of God
  4. Exodus
    • Moses
  5. Anointing
    • Attention given to the person who has the Anointing
    • If anointing is not released to God, one will still keep the Influence, but the Anointing will kill that person

      • Michael Jackson
      • kurt Cobain
      • Whitney Houston
    • Began in Church, but did not stay under Authority of God
    • Creates an opportunity for presence

      • Word announces Light

    • Pastors are celebrated
  9. Some not even at Anointing, but stuck at Influence
  10. Anointing
  11. Empowerment giving to people to release Heaven’s influence on people
    • Influence
      • If one does not yield influence to God, it will kill that person
      • Sound is an indicator that a manifestation is coming
    • Surrendering to God
    • Pay the Price
      • Live carefully
      • Live in intimacy with God
    • Other Side of the Price
      • Paid the price of the anointing
      • Post brokenness
  12. Presence of God
    • God is the tangible expression that God is very present in a space and time among his people
    • Tangible observance that God is present with his people
    • What we do with Presence determines whether we move from Presence to Glory
    • We shut Presence so quickly and do not wait long enough to get from Presence to Glory
    • But, we need more
      • We need God to help where thousand years of counseling can not help
  13. Glory of God
    • Transformative dimension of God in the earth where God preeminence is there among men
    • Habits fall off
    • Intimacy
    • Disinterested
    • Best preachers in the world are those that are teaching Sin Management

    • I can do something about how dead I am

      • Your remember where it started
    • Principle of Bow and Arrow
      • Arrow has to be pulled away , back, for a season
    • God can call a man who can afford to be pulled back
  2.  Miraculous

    • The first thing he used was tongue
    • For 4000 years, I have been waiting to show the World
    • The comforter can not come unless I go first

    • That saved 3000 on the Day of Pentecost
    • It was every man heard him in there own language
  6. If two or more can agree
  7. Faith
    • How many people were mentioned in the Bible, because of their talent?
    • When we bailed out on faith, we move out of the miraculously into the reasonable
    • Manipulate them into hearing what they want, and come back next week
    • We have no authority to tell them, rise and walk

The Process ( August 1st,  2013 )

  1. Parable of The barren Tree ( Luke 13:6,7,8, and 9 )
    And He began telling this parable: “A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. “And he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?’ And he answered and said to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer;…

 

Appeal to Heaven Conference

  1. Bring forth fruit in every Season and its leaves never wither
    • Stop living subject to Seasons
    • Seasons are a violation of a superior dimension
    • It is illegal to pray for “On Earth as Heaven” and then be subject to seasons
  2. Fig Tree
    • Bill Johnson
      • Fig tree rebuked for not having supernatural ability
    • Subject to Season in that degree of Presence
    • Not that you don’t have problems, but that it does not cost you fruit
  3. Bleeding problem
    • Jesus said “Do not weep”
    • Faith to respond to arrival of presence that announces intervention
  4. Noah
    • Because they have honor they covered their father’s nakedness
    • Honor within Spiritual Authority
    • But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked (  http://biblehub.com/genesis/9-23.htm )
  5. One’s generation compromise will lead to the next captivity
    • Whatever I am allowing in  my life in moderation, my  children will deal with it excess
    • Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard
    • Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside.
    • When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him
    • He said, “Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers.”
  6. Canaan
    • Now we see it as a promised land
    • But, before that it was a cursed land
    • God was looking for a covenant man that had the authority to go reverse the curse
    • Instead we are looking for how many people we can lock inside our churches and insulate from the curse
    • If you have no interest in invading the darkness, it was wasteful to give you a light
    • We can not get into comparing our light with other churches light
    • If you have a light that can be put out by the devil so easily, you don’t have one
  7. Wind
    • Wind that extinguish the inferior actually strengthens the good one
    • What the wind teaches you is what degree you are burning at
    • The same substance that meshes wax, hardens clay
  8. Law of relatable dimensions ( 21-22 )
    1. Deep cries to deep
    2. Shallow speaks to you, you are shallow
  9. Cursed be canaan
    • Pray for the rapture
    • Take our relationship and place them into another generation
    • You have to walk a little while not to be responsible for where God is sending you
    • What has been forfeited is still responsible, God is just looking for a covenant man to be qualified to receive what has been forfeited
  10. Faith’s Journey
    • Faith responding
    • Faith receding
    • Faith reviving
