Journal of Joy ~ Perdido Bay, Pensacola, Florida ~ June 2006
06.15.2006, Saturday ~ We arrived at Becky's in the late afternoon with the thick humid air smothering us. A couple of days before, when I arrived in Alabama, I asked Jan if she knew anyone that might have Worship Flags that I could borrow during my brief stay in the south. Jan called Becky who willingly shared not only her Worship Flags but her bay front so that we could pray over the territory. My spirit was overflowing with a sense of urgency to pray over the Gulf of Mexico territory while ministering in Alabama. Jan and Brenda enthusiastically agreed and so we went forth.
The Holy Spirit directed me to pray and release five bottles of Anointing Oil. I climbed over the embankment down to the water's edge and then waded in the warm gulf waters. As I released the first Anointing Oil, my prayer was, "FATHER in the name of JESUS, I release life in JESUS CHRIST to the waters, the land and the people of the land! I pray for the fullness of life in JESUS CHRIST to come forth! FATHER, I speak life, true life, holy life, righteous life, pure life to the land, the waters and the people of the land! Let the name of JESUS CHRIST be known in this place."
As I poured out the Anointing Oil, it moved like thick honey through the air until it dropped onto the water’s surface. The women standing on the pier began speaking, "Look, it is a heart! The oil formed a rainbow heart!" And of course, PAPA GOD is demonstrating HIS covenant promise to us upon the waters! He gave Noah a rainbow in the sky and HE gave us a rainbow heart upon the waters. Only GOD! As the heart was formed, I prayed that the heart of GOD would touch the waters, the land and the people of the land. That the despair and devastation of the hurricanes would be replaced by the covenant heart of FATHER GOD bringing restoration, redemption, renewal, revival and rebuilding to the land.
I poured out the following Anointing Oils:
HIS Justice! Anointing Oil
HIS 58 Covenant Blessings! Anointing Oil
HIS Holy Righteous and Pure Fire! Anointing Oil
HIS Pentecost Fire! Anointing Oil
HIS Crown and Key! Anointing Oil
One of the Anointing Oils was thrown across the pier symbolizing the bridge that JESUS is between heaven and earth. And for us as HIS messengers of HOPE, to realize that we also must be a "bridge" because not everyone can swim. This released a prayer of salvation for the lost and for the prodigals to come home in the name of YESHUA! Then the LORD opened my eyes and I noticed the bamboo/bulrushes and baby Moses in the basket was quickened to my spirit, so I began praying for the Apostolic anointing of Jesus Christ, the government of Jesus Christ to take over the land, the mercy seat of GOD to prevail, to permeate the waters, to embrace the people. After the fourth bottle of Anointing Oil was poured out, I looked across the waters and saw 100's of caskets (like a vision in the Spirit realm) to the edge of the horizon. The Holy Spirit spoke to me of the death, the grieving, and the pain in the waters, the land, and the people throughout the generations. I was bent over in grief, agonizing in n intercessory prayer. I asked for a flower from a bush in Becky's yard, so Brenda handed me a bright pink Four O' Clock blossom. I placed the blossom in the bottle of Anointing Oil and released them together as a symbolic act of healing the land with the anointing and fragrance of JESUS CHRIST.
After the last Anointing Oil was released, I stood for a long time and prayed with my handed lifted high. Jan noticed a butterfly that flew over me and rested in the sand until I moved my hand. Surely GOD has visited this place releasing HIS new beginnings to the people of Perdido Bay, Pensacola, Florida for HIS GLORY! I was completely surprised to look down and see that the blossom (the Fragrance of JESUS CHRIST) had returned to the shore almost immediately. HIS word does not return void! Then Becky brought me her red Worship Flags and I began to worship with flags under the blossoming Mimosa Tree.
The red Worship Flags are symbolic of the blood of JESUS CHRIST and HIS resurrection power being released over the land. HIS banner over us is love! Although the LORD has been extravagant in sharing HIS signs, wonders and miracles throughout my life, the rainbow heart on the waters will remain with me forever.
We then left Becky's and drove to the Genesis church to anoint the doors with Anointing Oil. When I poured out the Anointing Oil at the back door it formed a crucifix cross on the cement. It was all a bit overwhelming. Then at the front door the Anointing Oil stayed in the shape of simple cross.
Heartfelt thanks to Brenda, Becky, Jan and the faithful and radical intercessors of HIS Glory Ring Ministries and Christians United Ministries. Our prayer is that this will inspire and motivate you to pray over your land wherever you live!
