Guidelines for GLOBAL PRAYER from our international leadership

Our spiritual strength, our spiritual revival, begins and ends WITH PRAYER. God is calling us to return to our spiritual roots, to our principles, and the heart of those first spiritual roots IS PRAYER.
FAST AND PRAY in your local chapters. FAST AND PRAY to seek God's will in your personal life. Allow the Holy Spirit to quicken your heart towards the next movement in your area. Seek God in the middle of the night.

"The Vision Intensifies"
THE PRIESTLY ANOINTING OF DANIEL

Then Daniel went to Arioch, whom the king had appointed to execute the wise men of Babylon, and said to him, “Do not execute the wise men of Babylon. Take me to the king, and I will interpret his dream for him.”
Daniel 2:24

46 Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell prostrate before Daniel and paid him honor and ordered that an offering and incense be presented to him. 47 The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.”
48 Then the king placed Daniel in a high position and lavished many gifts on him. He made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon and placed him in charge of all its wise men. 49 Moreover, at Daniel’s request the king appointed Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego administrators over the province of Babylon, while Daniel himself remained at the royal court.

Daniel 2:46-49 (NIV)

Chapters are encouraged to intensify their prayers of Intercession, Proclamations and Declarations to bring Revival in the body of Christ.
Christ has made us kings and priests unto God and given this Fellowship the kingly anointing of Cyrus and the priestly anointing of Daniel to make Proclamations and Intercessions over Nations and territories.
My Presidency will be anchored on Prayer because the Lord has given the Fellowship the mandate to spiritually dismantle Territorial powers over Nations using prayers of Proclamations, Declarations and Intercession. He says he has given us the kingly anointing of Cyrus and the priestly anointing of Daniel to deal with the powers of this world, the modern Babylonian system.
Francis Owusu
International President
THE KINGLY ANOINTING OF CYRUS

who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd
  and will accomplish all that I please;
he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,”
  and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”

Isaiah 44:28

“This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
  to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him
  and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him
  so that gates will not be shut:
I will go before you
  and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze
  and cut through bars of iron.

Isaiah 45:1-2 (NIV)

Just like King Cyrus whom God gave all the Nations of the world to, God has given us the Nations according to his word.
Ezra 1 (NIV) Psalm 2 (NIV)
Chapters have the anointing to be powerhouses where dark powers over Nations are dismantled through prayer to usher in Revival in the body of Christ.
GOD calls us to establish, declare, proclaim in the spiritual order and see the fruits in the material order, the full gospel in front of us in every nation.

Guidelines and prayer from the book A NEW WAVE OF REVIVAL - THE VISION INTENSIFIED written by our founder Demos Shakarian

Photo of the cover of the book THE VISION INTENSIFIED ONLY God, and the Power of His Holy Spirit, can make the fellowship ALIVE and VITAL. Our SPIRITUAL ROOTS, and our POWER, come only from one source, and that is the power of the Holy Spirit.

Start prayerfully seeking God on WHAT HE WANTS TO DO NOW and WHAT HE WANTS FOR THE FUTURE!

Our spiritual strength, and our spiritual revival, begins and ends with PRAYER. God is calling us back to our early spiritual roots, our early beginnings, and the core of those early spiritual roots is PRAYER.

FAST AND PRAY in your local chapters. FAST AND PRAY for God's will in your personal life. Let the Holy Spirit quicken to your heart the next move in your area. Seek God in the middle of the night.

Seek God for your own life. He will come in. Call upon God to release A NEW WAVE OF REVIVAL in your own life in your own chapter, in your own convention, in every meeting.

GIVE TIME TO GOD! GIVE TIME TO GOD! GIVE TIME TO GOD!

Wait upon His voice in your life - and when you hear it, then ACT, GO. DO.

Men, we need the power of the Holy Ghost in the chapters. Invite the Holy Spirit to come, he'll come. Conventions must be more open to a flow from God. GOD ALONE CAN CHANGE OUR WORLD - all we can do is prepare ourselves to serve as God's vessels.

In my original Vision, God did not show me a large worldwide chapter headquarters. Don't misunderstand me. I am grateful for that building - we need it, and God provided it. But let's be honest with each other. The beautiful building was not the Vision God gave to me. Building the building did not fulfill the Vision - it simply provided us with another tool to minister that Vision.

In my original Vision, God did not show me chapters. And again, don’t misunderstand me. Chapters have provided us with another way to reach out into the community with the saving message of Jesus Christ. Chapters have proven to be anointed vessels for ministering to the local community.

But beloved, the Vision is people. The Vision is God's Holy Spirit changing lives. The Vision is God BREAKING THE CHAINS OF THE DEVIL and setting the captive free!

Start your preparation for the FUTURE by saying this prayer, out loud, to our Almighty God, today:

"Heavenly Father,

We thank You for all that you have done - through our lives, and through the ministry of the fellowship. But whatever has been accomplished to date... we now know it is only a glimmer, a glimpse of the future, of what is STILL to be done through the power of Your Holy Spirit.

Lord, we stand ready and willing to serve.

We are willing to pray, to fast, and to seek Your will in our lives, no matter what the cost. You are Lord. You are Master, and it is YOU ALONE we shall serve.

Heavenly Father, forgive us if sometimes our eyes have focused on men, on chapters, or on buildings. We ask that you will help us FOCUS ONLY ON YOU and Your mandates for our lives. We realize YOU ALONE are our hope - and without the power of the Holy Spirit, nothing we can do will ever save one solitary soul.

Lord, we ask that You use us as vessels to help fulfill your vision. Allow us to break the BONDAGE OF SIN in the lives of our neighbors, and in the lives of millions of the people around the world. Help us melt the ICE COLD death of Satan from lost souls, and transform them into children of LIGHT through Your saving grace.

Lord, we give You ALL the honor and the glory for the revelations You have shown us, and thank You, in the name of Jesus Christ, for what You are about to do to change face of this world.

Amen!"

A NEW WAVE OF REVIVAL - THE VISION INTENSIFIED

Guidelines and prayer from the book BEHOLD THE GLORY OF GOD! written by our founder Demos Shakarian

Photo of the cover of the book BEHOLD THE GLORY OF GOD! I see a time when the intensity of God's glory will dominate our Fellowship meetings and conferences.

We will soon witness an increasing intensity of God's glory!

But the path to these heavenly experiences here on earth is not easy.

The only way to God's glory is through holiness.

Holiness is not a very popular message, but it is the scriptural truth!

What moves God, and what allows Him to unleash His glory, is our being cleansed by the blood of Jesus, yielded in our hearts as servants to Him, living pure lives... then God wil pour out His power and glory upon us!

When you receive the glory of the Lord in your life, He will meet your every need. He'll heal your body. He'll heal your hurts. He'll change your life.

In the Old Testament days, the way to become pure and holy was through a blood sacrifice.

Throught the presence of a priest, an offering was presented before God.

Praise and worship created an atmosphere that literally prepared the temple for the habitation of God's glory.


Exodus 40:34-35 KJ21 2 Chronicles 5:11-14 KJ21

Today God still expects us to be pure and holy.

But He has a new, superior way to shower His blessings upon us - it's called Grace.

The Mosaic Law asked for internal change, but it did not produce that change.

By contrast, through grace, God administers His eternal, moral absolutes in an internal manner.

A "new nature" is produced by an internal change through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Christians today no longer need to give a blood sacrifice.

God DEMANDS holiness, but man can NEVER make himself holy.

That's why God sent His Son.

And He was sacrificed on the cross.

Through this blood sacrifice Jesus cleansed our sins.

Today, the animal sacrifice has been replaced by the blood of Jesus.

The external temple has been relocated into our hearts.

Each of us is now ordained king and priest and to personally interact with God!

Today, because the Old Law has been replaced with the New Law, we can expect to see the greatest manifestation of the glory of God in the spiritual history of man!


Hebrews 10:19-20 KJ21 Revelation 1:5-6 KJ21

Jesus now waits, willing and ready, to appear in the presence of God for us.

God wants to send His glory into our meetings with such power and presence that our people will not be able to stand! But before that happens, we must let His blood wash our sins and hearts.

Open your heart to him, totally and completely, today.

God can use His glory to bring witness to the heathens, and He can use His glory to prosper and bless you, and heal your body.

God wants to send MORE of His power, His annointing, and His glory into our lives.

Praise Him constantly.

Prepare yourself for your chapter meetings, your conventions, and your airlifts by spending time in prayer and worship.

When we sanctify ourselves, God will manifest Himself in Glory!

Repent now of every single sin in your life.

Prepare to receive His overflowing Shekinah glory.


Hebrews 9:24 KJ21 Titus 2:11-14 KJV 1 Peter 2:9 KJ21 John 11:40 KJ21

Say this prayer out loud, with a willing heart, to our Lord and Savior, and allow Him to prepare you to behold the glory of God:

"O heavenly Father, I know there are certain sins in my life. I'm ready to kill them now. I'm ready to destroy them now.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I kill the idols in my life, ending this thing between you and me, and get rid of those things in my heart that for so long I have resisted destroying.
Lord, cover these sins with your precious blood, dear Jesus.
Forgive me my sins, Lord, purify and cleanse me, and let Your glory, let Your presence come into my life right now.
Lord, I open my heart to receive the power of God into my life.
I receive healing.
I receive Your annointing now, in the name of Jesus.
Amen."

BEHOLD THE GLORY OF GOD!

Guidelines and prayer from the book THE ULTIMATE DIMENSION written by our founder Demos Shakarian

Photo of the cover of the book THE ULTIMATE DIMENSION There is yet a more intensified spiritual dimension awaiting us!

The starting place for that ultimate dimension is a decision. Do you want to have more of God in your life? If you do, then you must be willing to sacrifice and pay the price.

Through the ultimate dimension, we are challenged to strive for a perfect ONENESS-WITH-JESUS... a total unity with God.

As we walk in that dimension, we will...

KNOW HIS WILL,
POSSESS HIS FAITH,
MANIFEST HIS LOVE,
MIRROR HIS NATURE,
AND OPERATE IN HIS POWER!

To achieve that ultimate dimension demands...

OUR WILLINGNESS TO YIELD EVERYTHING TO HIM, TO SUFFER AND SACRIFICE FOR HIS PLANS, NOT AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE, BUT NOW!

Passion and vision make the difference. We must want to be one-with-Jesus more than anything else.

Men and women walking in “The Ultimate Dimension” will manifest EXPLOSIVE SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGHS to parallel the explosive breakthroughs we are now seeing in science, technology, and even in man's finances.

A walk in the Ultimate Dimension requires modern-day men and women willing to change and utilize all the technology and science available to bring the message to a dying world.

Be open to change. Let Jesus be your life. Be willing to give all you have to Him so that He can give His all to you.

I believe this Fellowship can walk in the Ultimate Dimension if we just put aside any differences between us and yield ourselves totally to Him right NOW.
Become one of God's chosen servants in the Ultimate Dimension, so right now, in the Spirit, let's agree in prayer for your breakthrough:

"Heavenly Father!

We thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to walk with us.

We thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit to live within us. And now Lord, we thank You for allowing us to become ONE with You, to walk in Your power, to operate in Your wisdom, and to perform Your miracles so we might be mighty endtime witnesses for Your glory!

Lord, we ask in a very specific way that You empower us so that we desire You above all else, so that we are willing to suffer and sacrifice for Your glory, and so that we might serve you in this endtime generation.

Lord, we love You, and praise You. And give You all the glory for everything You will do through our life.

Amen."

THE ULTIMATE DIMENSION

Guidelines and prayer from the book DIVINE LIFE written by our founder Demos Shakarian

Photo of the cover of the book DIVINE LIFE God is setting the stage for a new wave of His Shekinah Glory to sweep across Europe and the globe!

God gives us the privilege of walking in a personal, intimate relationship with Him.

God says "I have given you everything I can give. I have given you the authority of Jesus and His annointing. There is nothing else you need. Take His authority and go forward."

THE PRECIOUS WORDS FROM JOHN 15:1-12 ARE YOUR KEY TO DISCOVERING HOW TO WALK IN THE MIRACULOUS AND AWESOME PRIVILEGE OF DIVINE LIFE!
"I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in Me and I in Him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without Me ye can do nothing." (verse 5)
John 15:1-12 (KJ21)

Jesus has the FULL POWER to FULFILL HIS PROMISES!

WHEN YOU RECOGNIZE THE POWER OF THE PERSON MAKING THE PROMISES IN SCRIPTURE AS BOTH JESUS AND GOD, A CREATOR WHO HAS ALL POWER IN THE UNIVERSE TO FULFILL HIS PROMISES IN YOUR LIFE, THEN YOU TOO WILL ACT UPON HIS PROMISES WITH COMPLETE CONFIDENCE, AND BEGIN TO WALK IN DIVINE LIFE!

Demos believed it is possible to live in complete union with Jesus, to walk in divine life.

If your current day-to-day experience with Jesus is not as strong as it was in the early days of your salvation, the reason for the vacuum and the void is simple... YOU HAVE WANDERED AWAY FROM HIM.

That is not intended as a form of condemnation, but only as a statement of spiritual reality. God NEVER leaves us - we leave God through our sin and lack of relationship with Him.

Jesus said "Abide IN me".

Jesus is not just the main stem of the vine. He is the complete vine, including the branches. We are part of Jesus.

BRANCHES NEED THE VINE
THE VINE NEEDS THE BRANCHES
EVERYTHING FLOWS TO THE BRANCHES
ALL THE BRANCH HAS BELONGS TO THE VINE
THE FATHER IS THE KEEPER OF THE VINEYARD

"If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." (John 15:7)

Prayer is both one of the means and one of the fruits of divine life with Christ.

Our prayer ascends as HIS prayer because we will pray in accordance to the will of God.

You dare to claim an answer because you know that you are one with Him.

We get rest when we abide in Him and do only what He wills.

Jesus laid down one simple condition in our vine relationship for us to follow : abide.

Sap (the Holy Spirit) flows from the vine to the branches, to carry it forward and produce fruit.

If we abide we can ask anything.

Abiding needs no effort. It is being at rest.

If you are not on the vine you dry up.

Connect to the vine so you can produce.
Fellowship with God is vital. If your relationship is broken, immediately take the steps necessary to restore it. Connect to the vine so you can produce. God does not want to cut you off. Repent. Come back to God.

"Heavenly Father, I repent of my sins, and desire to restore my relationship with You. Lord, forgive me of all my sins, and wash me clean with Your precious blood. Lord, I want to learn to rest in You and walk in Your divine life. Please accept my contrite heart, and teach me Your ways. Amen."

Possess Jesus, dwell in Him, make Him your life. Only in a deeper searching into Him will you find the knowledge and guidance you desire.

Let the Holy Spirit lead you.

With God divine life is possible.

Abide in Him as the only life we seek.

Have faith that He will watch over you.

Nothing can separate us from the love of God.

Abide in Him one day at a time.

Take time for Jesus every day.
There is a spot where safety and victory, peace and rest are always sure. That spot is always open to you : the heart of Jesus. Yield yourself to Him now.

"Lord, I abide in You. At your bidding I gladly wear Your yoke. Let each consciousness of failure only give new urgency to the command, and teach me to listen more earnestly than ever until the Holy Spirit again gives me to hear the voice of Jesus saying, with a love and authority that inspire both hope and obedience, 'Child, abide in me.'"

"Lord, I receive Your divine life, and gladly accept the ever-increasing simplicity of its meaning. Lord, I freely give of myself to be ruled and taught and led, and rest in the arms of Your everlasting love."

You do not need to be strong or perfect.

In our weakness entrust ourselves to a Mighty One.

Let Him do all for us, in us, and through us.

Only Jesus can help us stay away from sin.

We are a branch of Jesus, the True Vine, abiding in Him, resting on Him, waiting for Him, serving Him, and living only in Him, so that He may give His fruit to a perishing world.

The ultimate objective of the divine life relationship is to produce fruit.

We become powerful witnesses.

We produce Christ-like relationships with others.

Fruit is a natural result of being a part of the vine.

Because of faith we can endure the pruning.

Let your light shine. Be a blessing to others.

Keep your heart right with God.

All things are yours because you are part of the vine.

His nature, love, will be continually manifested in us.

The purpose of the divine life is that we can produce fruit and be witnesses to the world.
Lift up your hands and thank God for the depth, the fullness and the eternity of His divine love for your life. Open your heart to the divine life that Christ is offering to you right now.

"Heavenly Father, this day I ask You to destroy any evidence or remaining remnant of the old man in my life. Purify me and cleanse me of all my old habits and sinful ways, so that I may be a pure branch for Your love to flow through to produce fruit for Your glory."

"Lord, I thank You for the opportunity to walk in a vine-branch relationship that produces divine life, and give You all the praise and glory for any good works You may unfold through my humble life. I ask that when others see me, they see You also."

"Lord, thank You for first loving me."

"I pray You will, each day, through Your Holy Spirit, increase the intensity of my love for You until that precious time when You will come again to rule and reign over this world! Amen."
