Read the featured article from the Los Angeles Sentinel:
Matthew 28:1-2: Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it.
Earthquakes are sudden and occur with little or no warning. However, following a major earthquake, the after-shocks may sometimes indicate the likelihood of a further earthquake. On some occasions, an earthquake may be preceded by less intense tremors or foreshocks. Basic characteristics of an earthquake are:
1. It is not yet possible to predict magnitude, time, and place of an earthquake.
2. The onset is usually sudden.
3. Earthquake-prone areas are generally well identified and well known on the basis of geological features and past occurrences.
4. Major effects arise mainly from ground movement and fractures of rocks underground. The obvious effects include damage (usually very severe) to buildings, infrastructures, and sometimes come with considerable casualties.
When the angel of the Lord came down from heaven to remove the stone from Jesus’ tomb, the scriptures say a great earthquake occurred. Although the guards at the tomb were so terrified that they fainted, the two Women who witnessed it were also overcome with fear–but they were, at the same time, filled with joy! They were in the right place, at the right time to have an encounter with God of miraculous proportions.
The exact spot underneath the surface of the earth at which an earthquake originates is known as “focus” while the point lying on the ground surface vertically above the focus is defined as “epicenter” of the earthquake. Beloved, we are spiritually situated at the central location of a supernatural disturbance! Knowing your position will be crucial to your breakthrough. What will you take authority over during this season of tremors, foreshocks, and aftershocks? God has already prepared us to penetrate infrastructural strongholds, biases, and wickedness that prevails in our society and the World. When the shaking begins, don’t faint! Rather begin to REJOICE knowing that your resurrection is at hand.
Declaring: “Lord, our Land is fractured. Make us now the Living Aftershocks of Calvary, ready to do your bidding.” Amen
MIDNIGHT MEDITATION: 3/20/2017 ~PLANETSHAKERS
Matthew 27:51. After he gave up his spirit, the earth shook, the rocks split, and tombs opened.”
In November 2009, pastors in Haiti had a national meeting. They prayed for revival. They prayed that God would shake their land. They prayed that He would tear down the strongholds in government, the evil forces in the judicial system, the presidency, and the corrupt politicians.
As they prayed, they believed that there was an exchan…ge in the spiritual realm.
When a devastating earthquake happened just two months later, the pastors believed that it was the physical manifestation of a pre-existing spiritual reality. Many believed that it was a direct answer to prayer. When we pray, we’re not in control of how God answers—we just believe that He will. However, we CAN control our actions and reactions.
We can allow the shaking to begin in us, with us, and through us. The physical reverberation of Jesus’ spiritual transaction that took place on Calvary is powerful, active, and available to us now—it’s READY to shift the spiritual atmosphere of communities; ABLE to transfer wealth and riches of the wicked to the righteous; and WILLING to open gateways to healing & breakthroughs beyond your wildest dreams.
Praying: Lord, we release our spirit to you. Consecrate us now for service and mighty exploits in Your Name.
MANIFEST MANNA: Meditate on Genesis 11:6. “The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they imagine will be impossible for them.” The mind has the power to cause us to use our imaginations for good, or for evil. Our minds can magnify mistakes and inflate one’s sense of self and success. We must always be careful to guard and protect our minds because this is the storehouse of information and revelation! It is also the front line of sabotage to every great thing, every great experience, every great relationship, and every great dream we have! This happens because dwelling on anything too long without doing something about it is not only unproductive, it is detrimental to proper and accurate achievement of your desired goals! An irritant to any productive person’s mind is when they encounter individuals who are simply perpetual dreamers. In other words, all talk–no action. Always recommending ideas and critiques, but never offering solid strategies–or just plain ‘help’!
Even though our minds are constantly collecting knowledge, stimuli, and information, our minds are also magnets for foolishness–all of which must be filtered on a second-by second basis! The challenge to a people who want to experience the manifested glory of God is that they must be on ONE ACCORD. In our prayer, in our praise, in our worship, in our serving, in our teaching, in our fellowship–all on the same page, with one agenda: TO SEE JESUS!
The beautiful thing about being on one accord is that it forces our minds to focus; In the life of the worshiper, FOCUS is power! The devil is fully aware of this, thus any possible, available distraction that can be erected WILL BE! However, we must know that when we use our holy imagination and laser focus on God, we have the power to NEUTRALIZE everything that tries to keep us bound and scattered! Today, know that your dreams are giving life to your imagination, BUT the EXECUTION of YOUR dreams are producing your manifested future. AMEN
