December 2015 – Concord (Cabarrus County) – Gathering & Commissioning

Prophesying Victory & Triumph to Cabarrus County – Welcome Holy Spirit!

Chuck Pierce

“We are in war. Without the restraining force of Holy Spirit being present, the enemy has access. … We are in a new movement where a triumphant people have to rise up. .. We must understand that the only resisting force in the earth – it’s not being religious, it’s not going to church – it’s Holy Spirit amongst us and in us!” 

Our response

We, spirit-filled and awakened believers, stand ready and activated as our region’s and our nation’s wall of defense and offense.

Holy Spirit, we worship you and we welcome you to Cabarrus County. Jesus, we love you and adore you – we are grateful that you are ours and we are yours – we want to do our part to bring your kingdom to this county NOW!

Isaiah 32:15-18

Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high,
And the wilderness becomes a fertile field,
And the fertile field is considered as a forest.
Then justice will dwell in the wilderness
And righteousness will abide in the fertile field.
 And the work of righteousness will be peace,
And the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.
Then my people will live in a peaceful habitation,
And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places;

Decrees and prayers:
  • Dutch Sheets’ word about high level assignments being released to the available few. Testimony shared of prayer journey to Virginia Beach. Decreed that word over the team and  the believers in Cabarrus County.
  • Dutch’s recent recount about William Penn as a “covenantal” founding father. Team testimony shared of 2013 ministry assignment to Philadelphia (Yvonne’s birthplace) that included the National Constitution Center, the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall and how the team discovered the centrality of worship and honor of the Jewish people at the time of our nation’s founding  – no wonder the Lord set up our government there. The Lord responds to our worship and hears & answers our prayers – He is still covenantally aligning us and leading us!  We loose that anointing for covenantal prayers asked and fulfilled and apostolic alignment & assignments over the churches, ministries and believers in Cabarrus County and throughout the Carolinas.

“William Penn who founded Pennsylvania asked the Lord that it would become the seed of the nation. Penn was one of the most God-covenant men in the history.…  He based things on covenant and said let this colony become the seed of a nation.  It did indeed become the seed of a nation. Philadelphia became the place where most of our government was formed… “

  • Came against the busyness – the scurrying that pervaded the atmosphere due to the holiday shopping season. We prayed for peace and protection to surround all the shoppers that we crawled through. We prayed that they would see Jesus in their midst and would re-focus on spending time with family and loved ones. We also came against thieves, robbers and schemes.
  • Prayed that the God of all comfort would surround those having a difficult time this holiday season; those who are alone, those  grieving over deceased loved ones, etc.
  • Prayed for the sense of community to prevail throughout the county. We prayed for marriages, families, and children,
  • Prayed for businesses that were righteous to prevail and prosper. We prayed for NASCAR– that Jesus would be in the midst there. And we prayed that the blessings and prosperity in the area would roll down and touch those communities less fortunate in the county as well as in Charlotte.
  •  Prayed for the spirit of unity and harmony (Concord means harmony) to cover the area.
  • Prayed for our equipping sessions that launch in January at this location.
  • Knees and joints healed! “Look at me – I can squat!” And still standing & bending strong at the time of this report.
  • And less than two weeks after this Gathering, a manifestation of a miracle – an expedited judgment and reduced sentence for a precious brother in the Lord that we prayed for that night – 19 months sentence v. potential of 14-20 years.

Matthew Parker was set apart as a Commissioned Minister of Releasing Heaven Ministries by the laying on of hands:

Matthew in action leading the RHM Team for Raise You Up Ministries’ Revival Day held this past November – Matthew orchestrated an awesome prophetic act of releasing balloons to the Lord that had our one burden or our one hope attached to it! A really powerful time that planted seeds of life, love and destiny!
