Meditating Gods Word - Joseph Prince

Meditate On
I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways.
Psalm 119:15
Heaven Hears, Hell Obeys!
The Bible records for us that Joshua, in the sight of the Israelites, said, “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” And miraculously, “the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies” (Joshua 10:12–13).
What awesome authority and power in the mouth of a man! The Bible adds that “there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel” (Joshua 10:14).
Now, why did Joshua’s words carry so much authority and why did the Lord heed his voice? I believe that it had something to do with the fact that Joshua meditated on the Scriptures day and night as instructed by the Lord right at the start of his leadership (Joshua 1:8).
My friend, power in your mouth or words comes not by you raising your fist or voice, but by you meditating regularly on God’s Word. For example, when you meditate often on God’s promises regarding healing, faith comes alive in your heart, and that sickness or disease will have to leave when you say, “Get out!”
The more you meditate on the Lord’s grace and His promises, the more they’ll become real to you until faith is effortless. Then, like Joshua, when you speak, heaven hears and hell obeys!

From Visitation on November 2, 2013 
I woke up with a visitation from the Fear of the Lord like I have never had before. This visitation has personal application for the nations.  
Then the Lord took me into a vision, and this, too, was unlike what I have ever seen or experienced . . . He took me to see the actual fulfillment of the following scriptures . . . He held my hand, and led me on a "tour" to see what was coming, and I traveled to see us "living" in the following . . . 
 First, the visitation of the Fear of the Lord came, and I saw the Lord coming in His Holiness and Grace. And the Fear of the Lord surrounded us with a circle of fire. 
1.)  Suddenly, I entered into Zechariah 2:4-5, where I saw the fire encircle us (no walls / boundaries anymore) and in middle of the fire was the "glory in her midst". 
2.)  Then I entered into Matthew 5:14, and I saw the "Light of the World", which was this glory being "seen". 
3.)  The Lord next took me into Isaiah 49:6, where He showed me this light going to the nations.
4.)  Next into Isaiah 60 - to see the glory of Zion.
Then I heard the Lord say, "fortification is coming" . . . He is making the city strong.  
 And I next went into . . . 
5.) 1 Peter 2:6 - a rebuilding of the cornerstone of Zion, and I saw the houses of the Lord being rebuilt / restored . . . literally I saw tons of thousands, upon thousands, upon thousands - as far as you could see, working to restore the house. 
6.) And I then saw Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1 - and I saw the Body being aligned in body, soul, and spirit.  There was a huge angel with a great tuning fork striking it, and as he struck the sound was released, and with each strike I saw the breath of God coming forth, but His breath was fire and the Life was in the Fire.  The Body was being prepared, and the Purifier / the Helper came (I was taken to see Jesus' body in the tomb being prepared and then His rising and the release of the Spirit / our helper coming to dwell in our midst . . . and I saw the prophetic that was released in that moment to be "activated" now).  And another angel came and sounded a great trumpet, and I saw it shaking and crumbling mountains. And I heard the Julie Meyer song, "Prepare the Way of the Lord" sounding, echoing, in great weight.   
7.) And then I saw into Matthew 3:11-12, where I saw Angels of Fire coming with the wind, and burning up all the chaft. And God said a "fresh fire" is coming like never before . . . a corporate baptism of fire. He said it's a "restoration of fire" . . . and I saw the same angel of restoration that had visited previously, and again His eyes danced with fire . . . and this time he looked on the face of the nations and the nations looked back, and I saw Him pointing to Jesus . . . and I saw the eye of the Lord and eyes of His people, and He was looking at us, but we were looking back . . . it was a restoration of "first love". 
8.) And lastly I saw Revelation 1:8, and I saw a twisting and turning and bending and folding in the spirit - a dimension in time coming into an activation and release with the Spirit - the Almighty God being made known in fullness.  And I saw the former generation meeting with the latter generation, which was a prophetic act to release the fullness of God . . . what I actually saw was an embodiment of the Lord, where He was now able to be seen as "Alpha and Omega" . . . an actual "veil" that was removed from eyes, and the "yes" of the people was made known . . . this happened when the unity arose between the former and latter  . . . a joining to bring about "He that was, and is, and is to come."  
And I saw a treasure chest with a lock and key being opened to reveal the mysteries of Heaven to the sons of God. The interesting part was that the treasure chest had already been opened, but I saw the sons surrounding it, and they were asking for and receiving the revelation being released with open arms.  And then I saw a great banquet table, and I saw the "hunger" of God being stirred (I saw their bellies and a swirling of fire entering into each one to draw forth a great hunger), and they salivated and waited at the table for the meal to be served . . . and when the meal came it was devoured, but as they ate the food kept coming - it just kept multiplying and never ran out . . . and they just kept eating and eating and eating (they were very undignified while eating I might add . . . LOL), just devouring all they could and couldn't eat fast enough.  And as the invitation was extended, and the table grew to accommodate more . . . and there was always enough . . . and I heard a voice in heaven echoing that phrase "There is always enough!!"   
After the vision, I went into prayer, and I saw an individual holding a treasure chest, and in the chest was a "remembrance" of all of their plowing and sacrifices . . . and the chest was filled with seeds . . . just filled and overflowing with seeds.  And I heard the Lord say that a TOTAL RESTORATION is coming.

Praying in Tongues - JC

As they waited in the Upper Room in prayer something powerful happened that changed their lives forever, the gift of the Holy Ghost was poured out.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4)


Notice those gathered were “all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Speaking with other tongues is the sign that you were baptized in the Holy Ghost. The Apostle Paul taught much on speaking in other tongues.  

           Praying in other tongues is your spirit talking to God. Paul taught when you are speaking in other tongues    
           you are not speaking unto men but unto God. This makes perfect sense because an “unknown tongue” is  
           unknown and no one can understand what you are saying.
    “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men but unto God: for no man understandeth him…” (1 Corinthians 14:2

    When praying in an unknown tongue you are, in the spirit, speaking mysteries. A mystery is something that baffles natural understanding and cannot be explained outside of faith. The mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven belong to the sons of God (Matthew 13:11). When you are praying in other tongues you are praying out the mysteries of God for your life.
    “…howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.” (1 Corinthians 14:2)

    You are a spirit, have a soul and live in a body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Praying in the spirit strengthens your spirit man. When praying in other tongues you edify (build up) your spirit (Jude 20). This means you are strengthening your spirit man when praying in an unknown tongue.
    “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth (builds up) himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.” (1 Corinthians 14:4)

    When you pray in an unknown tongue your spirit, not your mind, is praying unto God.

    Praying in other tongues is the most effective way to pray because you do not know how to pray as you should. By praying in other tongues the Holy Spirit helps overcome this prayer weakness

    The baptism of the Holy Ghost is different than salvation. The Holy Ghost is a free gift from God. The baptism of the Holy Spirit cannot be bought, earned or deserved. He is a gift available to the born again believer

    The Holy Ghost empowers you to see visions, dream dreams and prophesy. The purpose of prophecy is to glorify Christ, and for edification, exhortation and comfort (1 Corinthians 14:3).

    The Holy Ghost is promised to the repentant. Holy Ghost baptism is available after salvation. Peter offered instruction: repent, get water baptized, and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    Speaking in other tongues and prophecy is a sign of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
“For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.” (1 Corinthians 14:14)
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit (himself) maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” (Romans 8:26)
