These prophetic words were spoken in the house, at the first of the year. Pay attention and refer back to these words frequently to hear the voice of God for this season. God always speaks key points at the beginning of seasons that we should be watchful over.
I hear the Lord saying not to be discouraged. He said not to look at the things in your life that appear to be dead that look hard and appear to be cold and that there is no growth. Because he says that I am doing a work under the surface, a work that you cannot see. He said I am building my house and I desire for a people to have a firm and strong foundation in me. He said, you will walk in my authority and you will be a people that will carry my mantle. You will be a people that walk in son ship and walk in the kingdom of God. You are the Kingdom of God on this earth. So do not be discouraged at the building that is going on under the surface but be encouraged that the authority and the mantle will rest upon your shoulders and miracles, signs and wonders shall follow says the Lord. So be encouraged this day that I am building my house and doing a work under the surface and do not look at those things that you see but look at those things which are unseen says the Lord, and be encouraged this day that you shall walk in my Kingdom and you will carry my Kingdom says the Lord.
Pastor Marsha McCoy:
This morning when we were singing the Lord your glorious did you feel the presence of God move into the room? As we were singing that song I had my hands raised and I said Lord, fill my hands with your glory. This power began to come in my hands, and it stayed and radiated there. And I said Lord what am I to do with my hands and the Lord told me to go to the book of Acts chapter three and the story was that they had been in the upper room and been filled with the Holy Spirit. Then Peter stood up and he spoke to the multitudes and many people got saved but then he was on his way to the temple and the man who had been laying since his birth and had laid at that gate for years and years. Jesus had even walked by him and all of a sudden on that day as he is begging for money Peter says to him, silver and gold have I none but what I have I will give unto you.
I tell you this morning that if you are willing, the spirit of God wants to put Glory on you. And the things that you have walked by and the things that you have encountered whether that glory is on your lips or on your hands, because hands represent some form of ministry. That this is the year that you are going to see if manifest. They didn’t fall down in Jerusalem when Peter spoke, they responded. But the man who had been fallen down all his life began to stand. I am telling you this year if you will ask God He will put it in your hands; he will do in your life that which we have not seen him do in the past. All we have to do is reach out and receive.
I seen an angel standing on the altar, glowing angel before Pastor Tom went up there and I am telling you the presence of God is coming in here. The reason I am telling you this is because God says if you will not recognize me in the beginning you will not recognize me when the Glory comes and you cannot even stand. We need to recognize the moving of God and every way He shows up. And He is going to show up between three and six a.m. That is the fourth watch, the watch that birthed the Glory in the earth a change of day that happens. That is the watch that Jesus was in Gethsemane and it doesn’t mean you have to stay up waiting for God from 3 to 6 am; you just need to wake up when he calls. He woke me up the day before at 3.30 and he woke me up this morning at 5.45. We just need to give him the five or ten minutes, when he speaks we need to give our attention.
We need to receive our assignment and it will unfold as we respond. I do not feel the glory in my hand right now but I know that I received something and I said thank you Lord, I thank you that the glory is deposited in my hands and you will show me where it is to be released and when. He is calling for a responsive obedient people and that is how his glory is going to invade the earth.
I just want to say that everything the pastor said is what God has spoke to me. God says that this is a new year and he doesn’t change his mind; he is the same today, yesterday and forever and he says I have given you a weapon and this is your sword which is the Word of God. He says to walk with this and plant it in your heart and everything he said this morning is what God has already given me; That is the word for the year, take your sword and plant it in your heart and walk with it and have faith and believe God and trust in Him because no weapon formed against you will prosper says the Lord when you walk in this Word.

The Lord is saying to us this morning that He is taking us into a new place. He said that every time that He takes us into a new place there is more change that happens. So he said today that my desire for you is to step into the new but know that as you do change will come. He says that change is not a comfortable place to be in but know that I am in the change and I am the pressure that is going to come upon you. Do not allow the pressure to push you back into the old things; do not allow the pressure to cause you to sit back in a place where you feel comfortable because I am in the pressure and I am in the change and I am in the new things and I am taking you into the new because my blessing is there. He says I have moved and you must move with me; he says today step into that new place with me today and allow that pressure to come upon you and allow me to thrust you into that new place with me; embrace the change and the pressure today and do not allow yourself to be pushed back into a place where you are comfortable and complacent but He says, agree, agree, agree, agree with me today that I am embracing the change that you have for me Lord.

For I say to my people that this is a time of entering into my presence and this is a time of gaining confidence in me and this is a time of gaining my strength. But be on guard during this time to not set your weapons of war aside; do not allow your weapons to become dusty and do not allow your sword to become dull. Allow me during this time to sharpen you so you are ready for the next battle comes before you. For I say today that I am releasing a mantle of strength upon my people, and I am releasing a mantle of confidence of who you are in me. So enter into my presence this day and gain that strength and confidence that I have for you, says the Lord.

The Lord showed me a vision this morning and it gave me anxiety just watching the vision. We were walking across a bridge, a walk bridge that is narrow made of rope and planks. It was really high up and it crossed over this river and it was really long ways to walk, to cross over and that is why I was getting anxiety, I said to the Lord, this is really high! And as you took a step you wanted to look down because there were planks missing so you wanted to hold unto the ropes and watch where you were going. If you allowed yourself to be gripped by fear you are not going to make it. And the Lord says, there is a crossing over that is going to take place, look up but also watch your step. I took that as just keep looking up but watch where you are going. Do not take your eyes off from him for this crossing over is a crossing over of the heart. And the Lord says that if we try to cross over in our natural being that fear will grip us and we will not make it. He says to keep our eyes on Him and look up and cross over; it is a crossing over of the heart. I am sensing that there are some decisions that we are going to be making in the next week, the next two weeks that we are going to have to watch our step, keep our eyes focused on Him and ask Him to give us wisdom and direction. I feel he wants us to have that vision of that picture to know how serious this crossing over is. Just envision your self crossing over this river, this little walk bridge, this little rope and plank bridge is swaying back and forth and as the wind comes and the wind begins to blow and you need to hold on tight to Jesus and keep your eyes focused on him and make good choices and good decisions.
Pastor Marsha McCoy:
As Susan was telling that vision I heard the Lord say that a narrow place of faith is also represented in that bridge, as just as Peter tried to walk on the water, if he kept his eyes on the Lord he was fine, but if he got his eyes on the circumstances he began to sink. It reminded me that faith is going to be an aspect and fear comes against faith and if we allow fear to grip us we cannot grab a hold of faith. We don’t want to be fearful but we are going to have to walk in a narrow place; there have always been narrow places every time God causes people to advance because you can’t haul everything with you in a narrow place.
I was seeing when we were singing a person, actually it was a female standing in the middle of a circle and these angelic host were dancing around this woman. As they danced around her I seen her gain strength and more strength and more strength. Then the vision came out and I saw on the other side another circle with the angelic host dancing around a male. When I had a higher perspective of it I could see it was a figure 8. And the Lord was talking to me during this time about covenant and He wants us to remember that He is cutting covenant with us and that even though we are going into this narrow season of crossing over that He is our source and He has us, as long as you will trust him. They are very jubilant, they are celebrating that covenant has been cut with us and that they are at our disposal. I declare that as a congregation that we are stepping into that renewal of covenant with you and we will trust you that you will not leave us or forsake us but you will take us through into the new place that you have for us through the Blood of Jesus.
Check your amour, check your armor as there are chinks in your armor and we are half asleep and we don’t know it. I have been going through a lot of crap the devil has been working on me overtime to let you know that you have chinks in your armor, there are holes in it. The bible talks about fiery darts but the truth is there are arrows and they have a barb on them and they get into you, they don’t kill you but he reels you in and your faith becomes weaker and weaker. And right now with all the prophesy and what is going on in the world we have to wake up. When you go out to tell people about the Lord, check your armor as it’s not that pretty little thing that is was when you first got it, there are dents in it and holes in it. Fill yourself up in the faith so your armor is new again so you can go out and fight the enemy, amen. Check your armor!
I let the boys choose the music in my car and Israel has been asking for Julie Myers Paint Your Picture Cd lately. And he has been singing over and over and over again, He who touches Israel and he pours his heart into it when he sings. I didn’t put it together until this morning until I listened to the word that he has been preparing and praying over you guys to go. As a three year old he has been preparing as he has been feeling it in the spirit of the atmosphere, he knew, God put it on his heart to know and it’s been touching my heart.
