Each August, we turn aside from our regular schedules to spend time seeking the Lord. This year, God has called us to focus on pulling down idols in our lives which separate us from God and sideline His operation in our lives. Well, no more!
The prophetic word for this year is Jubilee. God wants us free from any and all burdens and hindrances. Idols have infiltrated our lives and, unwittingly, they are controlling us to the point that God cannot get the full expression of his presence and power in our lives. We all face idols.
During this time of prayer and through the weekend messages, we will identify and expose the idols we’ve adopted and defeat them so we can reconnect with our first love— the Lord Jesus Christ.
Make no mistake about it: God hates idolatry. It is the first commandment. When we worship idols, it kindles God’s anger because it pollutes us and makes us slaves to the devil.
Scripture tells us that the punishment and consequences of idolatry passes to four (4) generations (Exodus 20:5). Thus, spiritually, you may be unknowingly serving an idol introduced by those who came before you. Could your lack of progress in life be the result of ancestral idolatry?
Idolatry is evil and it must be renounced. Each day we’ll read scriptures explaining God’s position on idols, we’ll jointly declare our deliverance from idols and our complete dependance upon God. Lastly, we’ll meet Monday – Friday at 7pm in the auditorium to pray and on Saturdays at 7am.
This Year of Jubilee is the time to truly break every demonic alliance to idols so we can serve the living God. “So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. (Colossians 3:5 NLT)
What type of fast?
The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God.
Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out! It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God, and prepares our hearts for all of the good things God desires to bring into our lives.
Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your own body, know your options and most importantly, seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
Ideally, your fast should be from food (with a doctor’s consultation). If you are unable to fast food, you can choose other forms of fasting which represent a real sacrifice for you.
In addition to your chosen fast, we are requesting you to refrain from:
As much as possible see this time as a season of consecration to God.
Each day, read the assigned scripture and say the declaration.
Lastly, each Monday – Friday at 7:00pm and Saturdays at 7:00am, we will meet in the auditorium and on Zoom for a time of teaching, worship and prayer. The Zoom credentials are below and we look forward to praying together with you!
