June 16, 2006, Sunday ~ We arrived at Wolf Bay in the late afternoon. The day had been full to overflowing with shopping for Glory Ring supplies for the workshop, praying over the place the workshop would be held, praying at Pensacola Bay and visiting 2nd Best Thrift store, where HGRM was blessed with two huge bags of worship instrument supplies.
The temperature was about 94° degrees and the warm moist air hung thickly in the sky. Wolf Bay was also ravaged by hurricane Ivan in September 2004. Brenda, Jan and I stopped at Twynette's bay front home to pray over the land, the waters and the people of Wolf Bay. My eyes immediately went to the large anchor secured near the water’s edge and then scanned the newly constructed wood pier in the shape of a cross. The anchor is where I first poured out anointing oil and then I prayed portions of Daniel 3, Isaiah 60 and Psalm 91 over this land.
We poured out the following five 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 oils was thrown across the cross-shaped pier symbolizing the bridge that JESUS is between heaven and earth. This released a prayer of salvation for the lost and for the prodigals to come home in the name of YESHUA!
I began worshiping with flags in the soft wind that rustled the humid air and danced the length of the pier with the Worship Flags. The purpose of the dance was to bring Hurricane Ivan's devastation to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ. I prayed for the water and wildlife to be healed and restored, for the land and plant kingdom to be renewed and redeemed, for the people of Wolf Bay to receive radical restoration, radiant redemption, renewal, revival, rebuilding and reconstruction. There is nothing quite like the miraculous, life-giving, tender-loving touch of YESHUA!
I picked a beautiful fragrant Oleander Blossom to symbolize the release of the fragrance of Jesus Christ, the fragrance of heaven over this territory so filled with painful memories. Then I poured the Anointing Oil and dropped the fragrant blossom into the bay waters simultaneously. The waves took the blossom under the pier. It was like the fragrance of the LORD was going before and after, over and under...that the fragrance of Christ is the Alpha and the Omega.
Then the Holy Spirit directed my steps to the landing on the back of the house. Ascending the stairs to the upper deck where I worshiped with flags over the land. The sun design in the deck seemed apropos due to the SON of GOD being present with us that day! 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! Looking over the edge of the deck I noticed a beautiful blossoming plant and asked Jan the name of the plant: The Disciples of Christ - it is from the Lily family and has 12 blossoms. As we were driving out of the driveway, I asked about the brilliant red blossoms on the large bush overhanging the canal. The name: Christ's Tears!
The LORD’s presence was in this place. To HIM we give eternal thanksgiving, praise and glory!
