Yesterday morning, one thing that Ms. Annie said was that the talking heads would be turned upside down on their heads. I actually heard somebody say that last night and I am not sure which network because I was kind of flipping around. They said "The talking heads were on their heads."
Ms. Annie shared…
I have been praying that prophetically for months. Brother Copeland said that prophets exist to give the people something to say but the Holy Spirit gives you something to say and when He does you have to say it. But whoa, when it comes to pass, you are shocked! It's like "Oh, wow. I need to say more things that He tells me to say!" Ha, ha, ha.

Both Sandy and I were watching the Winners Minute this morning and the whole message was that whoever is elected, as the Church, as the body of Christ, we have to support these people. I just thought that was perfect for today but it would still be perfect for today if it went another way. Do you see what I am saying? So, for a lot of us that would be a little more difficult, but we have been there, and we have done it over the years.
A couple of things I heard in the media that I just thought well we have prayed that so many times. For me personally, I just could hardly stand to watch because we have given so much in the Spirit for our nation. We are not looking just for a man or a woman but we are looking for God's plan; when you look at the platforms, that's the whole deal. I actually heard them more than once. They said "Something is happening. There is a shift." Whoa! (ha, ha, ha) There is a shifting going on. And then this morning we were watching this interviewer, two ladies, and she said she heard from some of her friends that they were not clear when they went into the voting booth, they weren't clear as to who they would vote for. But once they got in there they voted for the platform. That's pretty interesting isn't it? That's another thing we have been praying for and we just believed for that. There was one more thing. One of the people whose job it is to come up with the polls where they said this and they said that and you can read all about it before election day, he was being interviewed and said "We missed so much in our pre-polling, I not only have an egg on my face, I have a whole omelet." He said about this election, "It will be talked about for the rest of our lives because it's such a change." Pastor Mac has been preaching that message.
I also talked to Pastor Lynne this morning and, of course, we know this, it's not over. It's just beginning. It's an opportunity for our country to move more in God's way. I think she said she slept two hours. It was hard to sleep especially when your phone is going off all the time (ha, ha, ha).
First of all, we have to believe that the right people will be put in, the right men and the right women, the right leadership. If you are going to say" well, we are going to drain the swamp." Then we better be filling up the swamp with the right people. So, you know definitely we have always prayed that. Some people will be taken out and others will be moved in. But we want the right God-directed people in positions of leadership. Right? That's why we are supposed to pray for our leaders. Maybe if you feel like it, you could pray for the leaders? No, it's a command really to do that.
The following prophecy was given by Kenneth Copeland on November 4, 2014 at the
America Stands 2014 Broadcast:
I Have Given You Your Nation Back!
"The dominating power and authority of My WORD is very plain and very obvious in the Scripture. I made certain statements calling things that be not as though they were. I said a virgin would give birth to a child in the city of Bethlehem. And My WORD dominated the heavens and the earth and peoples in the earth for over 700 years until that child was born in Bethlehem at the appointed time, by the appointed virgin, and the Son came into the earth at the exact proper time.
"I have spoken certain words over this nation. They will come to pass. They are coming to pass now," saith The LORD. "And all of the things that satan has attempted to carry out in order to stop My voice in the earth has come to naught. For I said this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all nations and then the end shall come, and not before. It's coming to pass, and this nation is the cradle of that message. It has come out of this nation, the revelations and the changes that have taken place. And over the years and centuries that have gone by, I've called upon this nation to be My judgment arm. I've called on this nation to be My voice. I've called on this nation and many, many of your sons and daughters have answered My call and laid their lives on the line and I do not forget that.
"So hear, My people. Hear My voice. Yes. The door is open. Repent and come through it; for I have a plan, and it's THE BLESSING plan, and it's far greater than anything you have ever seen before. I have a new birth for this nation. I have planned a nation that, right at this moment, you really don't have any concept of what it's like. For think back to 1770, 1771, 1772, 1773 and a new nation was being born.
"But do you think that the men of that hour had any concept of what this nation would look like 100 years from that time? No. They had no idea. It had never happened before. Hear My words, America. I have a new nation in My heart and in My mind and you don't know what it looks like. The door is open. Step through it and together we will bring a new nation on the earth, one nation under God that trusts in God. And there are those that would say, 'How could that possibly come to pass?' It can come to pass because I am God and I change not. And My plan has already been planned before the foundation of the world. And you listen to Me, and you walk with Me, and together we'll see it come to pass.
(If you listen to much of the news, you could hear people say "Well, how can this possibly be?" People are dumbfounded this morning. The talking heads are still upside down. The way of the wicked He turns upside down.)
"But for all of those who will turn their back on what I am doing now, you will be like those of old who get trapped in the desert, and your bones will fall in the desert, and you will not experience the greatness that I have in store. But I have a people. I have a people that have humbled themselves and have turned from their wicked ways, and I have more and more and more that are seeking My face. And I'll tell you this: I'm easy to find. And I've raised up people throughout this nation and I have a people all over this earth who are praying for the United States in this very hour, who are holding this country up before Me because they realize they need this nation also.
"So these are the days of your deliverance. Rejoice, and be glad because I have given you your nation back. And the manifestation of its new birth is at hand. So rejoice and lift up your head and be of good cheer. Your sins are forgiven you."
That's a word over our nation isn't it? That prophesy is so right for today. This is from 2014. Hallelujah. Thank You, Lord.
Prayed…
Lord, we are thankful
Not just for a man or a party
But for God's will and His plan on this earth right now
Mr. Terry shared…
Creflo Dollar said in the time of trouble, you must rejoice. There are three manifestations of rejoicing. Some people think it is just to be quiet is rejoicing. Some people think to not say anything is rejoicing. No, he says rejoicing has three manifestations. First you lighten up. Now this is when you are in trouble. And praise God we are not in trouble because God is answering prayer. The second is to leap and then to spin around. That's what you do to rejoice. (Rejoicing, leap and spin around)
Rejoicing brings victory, fulfillment and it brings protection against oppression
We rejoice in You, Lord
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Ms. Annie led us singing "Rejoice Ye People of the Lord"
Pastor Ray shared…
I like that jumping up and down and turning around. Some things have definitely turned but they need to keep on turning. The Church is responsible for it. Eighty one percent of evangelicals voted for God's plan. Hallelujah! That's pretty impressive.
Ms. Annie led us singing "Praise to the One Who Sent Us His Son"
Pastor Ray shared…
I hadn't really thought about it this way until right now but the pictures that we could watch at the rallies and people could show up even in Minnesota, you know some 20,000 people on a day's notice. These were pictures of revival. It wasn't just about a man. It was about change in our land. It was about a hope maybe where they felt hopeless. It was about change but it was a picture of what it would be like when the glory of God is manifested and the churches will be so jammed out because they won't be coming just for a man or a woman, they will be coming for Him.
And they will be drawn by the droves and they will show up like they showed up in Michigan at 1:30 in the morning, that 20 or 30 thousand people. It will be like that. There is a bell that is already ringing, a sound, sounds of change are moving across the land this morning. Some of those, some that had themselves turned upside down or some that entered in another way than they thought they maybe would go as far as the vote. This is God. This is a move of the Holy Ghost, something unique and different than what we have seen ever, ever, ever before.
Now one of the people this morning has said "this will be written about for the rest of our lives because of the change that came, because of the people that said "We need change." And so far as the Spirit of God that we would be that hungry that we would stand in a line, we would get there three hours early, we would stand in a line, we would wait and wait and wait on Him. And it would be not just 20 thousand, 30 thousand, it would by thousands upon thousands upon thousands as the presence of God permeates the United States of America.
It's not just about this nation. I know Pastor Marie said Europe is in shock today. They are in shock because what was started in England, it's adding more fuel to what began there and it's putting a stop where the enemy tried to get in and work it into a one world deal. So America, we pray over you.
Ms. Annie led us in singing "God Bless America"
Continued praying…
Father, we get that picture of the US map again, all of the different states, Alaska and Hawaii
The blood of Jesus is over you America—we declare it this morning
We declare it more today than we declared it yesterday
From state to state, all around the borders. Hallelujah!
Praying the blessings over our nation
This nation will continually move more and more Your way
For the Church has stood up and will stay standing up
Calling those things that are not just like He did, as though they were
Some things will take some prayers to continually move them in God's way
Things, places, positions that were stuck one way in the name of Jesus, we declare a loosing in Jesus' name
Where there were seemingly chains that held us down from God's way – broken in the name of Jesus
Today!
Praying over the offices in Jesus' name
For wisdom and understanding about what to do
For the move and direction of Your Spirit
A showing and a revealing – clearing a path
Let Your love come through the Church and move swiftly across this nation
Things that were divided up, let them be healed up in Jesus' name
New assignments, new calls, new days, new times and hours
Covered in the blood
Things are still shifting – THEY ARE STILL CHANGING!
And the economy is changing and the money is turning – greater, increase, momentum
Breakthroughs in areas we didn't even know we needed it
Victory!
Ms. Jeanie shared…
America, we declare over you today your capacity has increased and continue to increase to carry His glory in a way the earth has never seen before. So we call you in today to take your place. Keep your capacity and take the land today! We call you in today right now. We connect you back to Israel and we declare over you, "You will! You do! Your heart turns back to Israel in a way the world has never seen before."
Ms. Mandie shared…
I hear the word fullness. I hear the word fullness. There is a fullness breaking out. There is a fullness breaking out in the Spirit right now. A fullness! We release it in the name of Jesus. Father, we receive it! I say in the name of Jesus we increase our capacity to receive the fullness in the name of Jesus.
Ms. Jeanie shared…
As sons and daughters with ease, sitting down at the right hand from the third heaven we declare, we decree we receive on behalf of the earth that cries out, that cries out for us to show up and we show up.
Continued praying…
Thank You for the compassion of Your Spirit coming through the Church
The love of God that would come through the Church, believers
Now, today
Because of what's shifted, that Love, there is a way that that will operate that will help bring in that great glory from heaven
Opening up those opportunities when we by faith walk in that compassion for others
There are no shoving things in people's faces
The compassion of God
The ministry of the Holy Ghost
Oh, thank You, Father, for Your love
Ms. Mandie shared…
I keep hearing in my spirit the Father saying that Jesus came to this world to represent the face of the Father and I see that over America. I saw the heart of the Father being poured out across America in the face of Jesus, upon the face of believers that face of love. It's the billboard of Love. It's the face of Love in the name of Jesus. That we would walk and take authority in the Spirit… Love overcomes all things. It overcomes all things. It never fails. I thank You, Father, for Your heart beat broke open across America that we would be children of the most high God and we would find our identity in Christ. I speak identity over the body of Christ right now. I speak identity over America. That we know who we are in the name of Jesus and she would stand up and arise into her liberty, into her place. The light of the world! The light of the world! A beacon, a beacon.
Ms. Annie led us singing…
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
But most of all in me
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done
In heaven and earth
But most of, most of all in me
Pastor Ray shared…
For this is part of the new both in me and in you. These are the days that have been prophesied about where things will begin to turn and it will give the Church a brand new shout. And the shout will be a shout of victory where the Church will never turn back or never sit down into status quo but it will continue to rise up for this is a new day and things will continue to turn in God's day.
So it's up to the Church, it's up to us to carry everything through, to keep lifting our eyes, our hearts, keep lifting them and lifting them even when things around look down we look up. In others we will see it and they'll know that is different than something I have ever seen before. It's not normal. It's not natural. It must be supernatural.
That's part of the glory shinning bright. Part of what we have been declared to be, the bright light from heaven wherever we go.
Continued praying…
We take it to heart – we take it seriously
You are directing us into new days
For Your Word hasn't changed
You are the same but You did say new day, new days
We thank You for it, Lord – all of the new
We don't even know what all that is
But we know You know
You created this earth by Your words
Thank You for You words, Lord
Ms. Annie led us singing "My Soul Proclaims the Greatness of the Lord"
Continued praying…
Your name is Holy
Your power is great
Our future is bright, things will turn out right
For You promised in Your word You would direct us and lead us on our flight
We're lifted because of You
We're directed through You
And we give You all glory, all praise, all of the honor for the things that are to come in Jesus' name. Amen
Pastor Ray shared…
Thank You for bringing your supplies always. I appreciate it all the way through. But you know what, there is a whole lot more. So, we keep moving.
Always in every situation in this ministry the biggest, biggest, biggest meeting we have ever had, Pastor Mac and Lynne would come the next day and say "Okay, this is what we are doing next." When a lot of us would be like "can't we just take two weeks off?" No. We keep moving. Amen.
