Eyes Right

Yesterday was a marvelous day of worship and prophetic revelation at Prince of Peace Church. Prior to our time of worship the Lord was already informing us that He was about to shift us into a new season of authority and warfare.  He was instructing us that we were to let go of past issues.  He had prompted me to preach on Joseph and how the Lord released him to be an agent of redemptive authority.

Joseph did not let his circumstances dictate his life. He refused to succumb to the issues  of his life.  He did not embrace a spirit of entitlement.  Instead, after he was sold by his brothers and again after he was imprisoned, he diligently set his hands to his work and quickly won the confidence of his new owner/jailer. Some people cannot seem to let go of past wrongs, real or imagined. They wallow in self-pity and anger, holding on to old resentments. This seems to be a normal human reaction to misfortune and conflict.  Joseph moved away from entitlement to destiny.

In doing so he became active agent of redemption not only for his own life, but also for Egypt and more importantly – his people Israel.  He moved from the pit to the palace and released forgiveness and blessing over all generations to come. The Lord has the same destiny in store for us. 

In the midst of our praise and worship, Pat Wistner, our Minister of Healing, gave the following word from the Lord:

No traditions of men should or will trump my Kingdom coming.  I'm opening up your ears to hear the sound of heaven. In the sound there is direction.  2011 is a year of keeping your ear near the Father's heart to hear his slightest sigh!
The beat of My heart changes rhythm for every situation.  Stay in rhythm with Me.  Step out, step up, step into what I AM is doing - out of your comfort zone. YES - "out of this world" and its wisdom and direction. You will make a radical shift.

Walk quietly like a warrior in the forest. Warriors have a keen sense of exactly what the commander desires and is ready at an instant to comply. 
Pat Wistner concluded by saying: "The vision I saw was of troops marching in review before the commander.  They are all in step and in line - one lead person is assigned the duty of yelling "Eyes Right!" at which point every head is turned to the commander and every eye is on HIM."
EYES RIGHT!  Throughout our time of worship the Lord kept exhorting us to stay our eyes on Him.  He instructed us to pass into the new year - letting go of old things - and to set our eyes and ears on Him.  He is filling us with His Spirit of wisdom and understanding - just as He did with Joseph.
Then Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?"  So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are. "You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you." Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt." Then Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put the gold necklace around his neck. He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, "Bow the knee!" And he set him over all the land of Egypt. Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt."(Genesis 41:38-44)
EYES RIGHT!  The Lord is calling us as warriors who clearly see Him and hear His voice.  At the end of our service, we all stood at attention before the Lord.  At the command of a voice - we turned our eyes toward the altar and cross.  We gave our allegiance to our Lord, Commander and King.  As I have declared several times in the last few weeks.  He is mustering the troops.
