The Power of Intercession

Yeshua Our Intercessor

Hebrews 7:25:

“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”

Intercession is a priestly ministry.  Yeshua, is our High Priest.  As believers, Yeshua wants us to do the work of intercession with Him.  As believers pray, the work of the Holy Spirit aides us, so that we can pray the will of God.     With the help of the Holy Spirit, believers contend in prayer for the purposes of God to be established on the earth. 

Hebrews 4:15:

“For we do not have a kohen gadol who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all the same ways—yet without sin.”

1 Timothy 2:5:

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Yeshua the Messiah.” 

God Releases His Power Through Intercession

God releases His power through intercession.  Yeshua has given us the authority to overcome all the power of the enemy.  Yeshua, our High Priest, sits far above every throne, dominion, principality, and power – and in a sense, we are seated together with Him (Ephesians 2:6).  Through the power of Yeshua, the wicked schemes of the enemy can be demolished through intercession: every spiritual attack, every setback, every plot, and every wicked assignment – all of it.

Luke 10:18-20:

And Yeshua said to them, “I was watching Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names have been written in the heavens.”

The Believers Role In Intercession

Revelation 1:6:

“…and [He] has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever Amen.”

In my opinion, believers have a tri-fold role as intercessors. Let’s take a look at each role:

Priests – The priestly ministry is a ministry of intimacy and intercession.  During the temple period only the priests were allowed behind the veil.  Only the priests were allowed to offer up sacrifices that would atone for the sins of the people.  

However, in Matthew 27:50-51, the tearing of the veil in the Temple at the moment of Yeshua’s death dramatically symbolized that His sacrifice, the shedding of His own Blood, was a sufficient atonement for our sins. The tearing of the veil signified that now the way into the Holy of Holies was open for all people, for all time.

Hebrews 4:16:

“Therefore let us draw near to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace for help in time of need.”

Also, it is interesting to note that the Kohanim did not engage in battle. As intercessors, we must know when it is time to lay down our bows & arrows and engage in intimacy before the Lord Most High.  As intercessors, it is important for us to know when it is time to contend in prayer or enter into worship when we face spiritual warfare.

Deuteronomy 20:2-4:

“So it shall be, when you are on the verge of battle, that the priest shall approach and speak to the people. And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the Lord your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”

The Prophetic Voice – God will often impart prophetic utterances to declare His word through intercession.  It is important to know when it is time to cry aloud, spare not, and release God’s word.

Isaiah 58:1:

“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sin.”

Kings – Every kingdom – including God’s kingdom, operates through laws, ordinances, and governmental authority. As children of the King, God has given His children authority to walk effectively in His kingdom. (Luke 10:19).  As intercessors, it is important for us to know when it is time to walk in authority and decree the will of God to be established on the earth.

Revelation 5:10:

“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

Job 22:28:

“You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.”

As believers we must know when it is time to walk in our realm of authority and release kingdom mandates according to the will of God.  The great Charles Spurgeon wrote, “Prayer is an art by which the Holy Ghost can teach us.” 

  • With authority, we direct our prayers like arrows with deliberate aim in decreeing God’s will to be established on earth.
  • With authority, we direct our prayers with precision in order to execute and establish the purposes of God on the earth.  
  • With authority, we ambush, demolish, destroy, immobilize, annihilate, prevent, and cancel the assignments of the kingdom of darkness against our lives, our families, and this nation.

The Power of Intercession

I know many powerful intercessors from third-world nations whom God has raised up to contend in prayer against the spiritual darkness that governs their countries. These men and women are like Navy Seals and Special Forces in the realm of the Spirit.  God uses these men and women to stand in prayer against the kind of witchcraft and spiritual darkness that the average American wouldn’t believe existed.    

As intercessors in America, we can no longer shake our heads in amazement at the prevalence of spiritual darkness that governs obscure places.  In America, the enemy isn’t hiding in the shadows any more.  Wickedness in our society is not only prevalent – It Is BOLD.  Just a few months ago in New York City, witches gathered publicly to curse Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.  It was all over the news – darkness isn’t hiding anymore. 

Beloveds, just a few weeks ago New York passed legislation for full-term abortion. This is modern day infanticide and child sacrifice.   We must contend in intercession aggressively.  We must speak the word of God with BOLDNESS and COMMAND darkness to flee. 

Life In God’s Kingdom Is Naturally Supernatural

1 Corinthians 4:20:

For the kingdom of God is not in word but in POWER.”

 I believe that life in the kingdom of God is naturally supernatural.  In third world nations, signswonders, and creative miracles are a regular part of spiritual life.  Why?  I believe it is because of their dependency and expectation upon God.  

In Luke 8:43-48, Yeshua walked among the crowd where there were many who touched Him.  But virtue did not leave His body until the woman with an issue of blood touched Him.  Many people touched Yeshua – but only one person was healed.  Do you have an “issue” today?  Touch God with your faith and intercession.

Matthew 9:21:

“For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.”

In 1 Corinthians 4:20, Apostle Paul, tells us that the kingdom of God operates in demonstrations of power.  Yet, statistics show that a growing number of young people are becoming more attracted to the occult (i.e. Harry Potter and the Twilight series), because the occult world also operates in manifestations of power.    That is why GOD’S POWER must be in demonstration as it should be in our lives.

I believe, in these latter days, our endurance in spiritual warfare will depend on our prayer life.  As David defeated Goliath, we must go for the jugular in intercession.  We must take a righteous stand in God.  We must pray without ceasing.  Our cadence and our war-cry must be heard in heaven. I believe that God is raising up intercessors who will be like GENERALS  –  able to prevail in prayer. 

Today, may you walk in the tri-fold anointing of a priest, a prophetic voice, and a king in your role as intercessors.   I hope that this message stirred the priestly ministry of intercession within you.  Every believer prays, but not all prayer rises to the level of intercession.  The difference is found deep within the heart of the intercessor.  Most gifts are demonstrated by ability, but intercession is demonstrated by relationship.

2019 – Prophetic Word – General’s International – Global Prophetic Summit

Training God’s General’s  – The greater the call – the more intense the training. In this season we are going to have to die to our reputations, the fear of rejection, and the opinions of man. Rejection is often the daily bread of the “called.”  We are going to be stretched this year to tread upon the opinions of man and rejection. We must do what God has called us to do and leave the rest to God. God is training us up to be like Navy Seals, Commandos, Special Forces, and highly skilled Snipers in the realm of the Spirit.

Cindy Jacobs:

“I want share with you what God has been saying for 2019, and I’m very excited about everything ahead. This is a compilation of words sent to us from the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, and many of the well-known prophets from 65 nations during the Global Prophetic Summit. As I was looking through everything, it’s really amazing, but one thematic thing was, which excited me, was that God’s going to use women in a greater way!

Below is a summary of the prophetic words being released for 2019, watch the video for more details and additional teaching on some of the concepts and how to apply them to your life!

Supernatural Acceleration

This was a word the prophets received in 2018, but we believe it is extending into 2019 – extreme acceleration. The season of “suddenlies” will continue. 

Women Rise Up

A common theme coming from prophets around the world is that God is going to use women in a greater way. They are going to take their place, embrace their right to preach and be in ministry. Men and women should work side by side.

A keyword is multigenerational. Both men and women will work together across the generations.

Possessing the Gates of the Enemy

This word from last year proved to be very accurate. There were great advances made in many nations, even places known for religious persecution. Pastors and other leaders who had been imprisoned were released. Doors are opening with government leaders. Prophet after prophet is being given the opportunity to meet with their presidents, royals, and so on. 

North Korea

We sensed a little warning – step it up in prayer for North Korea. The situation could flash again and cause some problems. 

Joyful Increase

Even a blessing can cause stress. The season of suddenlies and acceleration is so important, but the Lord is really saying, when the suddenlies come, be ready to stay in joy.

Satan doesn’t want us to have joy; he wants to steal joy. He wants to stir up situations in your life to make you feel that God isn’t good, that you’re not going to have multiplication or increase. It’s about choices. You need to make a choice that you’re not going to get robbed.

The birthing process really models this because, at the time, you’ve got the promise, the child’s there, it’s ready for delivery, but the most troubling time for a woman is during that birthing process. Then you have to really press through to the very thing, the increase, that brings such joy. When you’re going through a joyful increase, many times you’ll feel a stretching. 

Year of Transition

2019 is a year of transition into the blessings, as we’re moving toward 2020 (2 Chron. 20:20 – believe the prophets, and you will prosper and be blessed). To build on the previous section, this is a year of birthing new things, of transitions. We need to remember that there is joy set before us. In the midst of birth, you have to remember this is going to be something you’re going to rejoice about. But sometimes people get caught up in the transition, and they think, “Well, this is just my life now.” No – it’s a transition. Don’t lose sight of the promise.

This is true for a lot of you. God’s been giving you dreams, visions, and a sense that you’re to move forward in a certain way during this next season, but as you’ve begun trying to move forward, you’re getting resistance. It’s a time where we’re going to have to learn and relearn and use the principles God’s already shown us. See the end result and keep the end result before your eyes, so that you can be joyful, looking beyond the circumstances to what you know God has for you. 

Culture Shifts

There will be a marriage of revival and reformation.

We’re going to see nations embracing values, and many will shift from being goat nations to sheep nations (sheep nations are in line with God’s promises; goat nations are not).

God is releasing a focus on evangelism. This is ultimately the reason prophets gather together and seek a word from the Lord, so people can be released to impact their nations.

God is creating miracles and releasing the game changers that will shift world governments. It will allow for God’s government that has no end. 


We are moving into a season of amazing creativity. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places, and what does He do in heavenly places? He creates. He has never stopped being the creator – the same yesterday, today, and forever. Because we’re made in His image, He wants to release in us an amazing amount of creativity. 

Shakings & Upheavals

We do feel a warning – 2019 is going to have some shakings and upheavals. There’s going to be government upheavals. There’s going to be some polarity. But God is going to cause you to get through it and get through it joyfully.”

Preparation, guidance, and discipline are necessary developing maturity with any gift, and the prophetic gift is no exception. However, prophetic mentorship can be quite challenging – for the mentor and the student alike!

Our newest series is designed to help in both sides of the process. For those who are seasoned in the prophetic, we want to challenge and equip you to be a mentor. Maybe you’ve never considered this possibility before, or maybe you tried but got frustrated. Either way, you can tap into the special grace and tenacity God wants to give you. Prophetic people are precious gemstones waiting to be uncovered, and you can partner with the Holy Spirit to be part of this mining process.

If you have an emerging prophetic gift, it is so important to be teachable and allow yourself to be mentored. There are important things to look for in a mentor and crucial steps you must understand in order to make that relationship truly effective. God is more interested in maturity and character than anointing, and mentorship is a vital part of seeing those things developed in you.

It is always a passion of my heart to impact the next generation, so whether you are ready to invest in someone’s life or you are looking to be part of a healthy mentoring relationship, I hope you will join me for this series – CLICK HERE!

Rak Chazak!

The Ancient WarCry of Lion Hearted Warriors:

Let the Lion Within You Roar!

Isaiah 31:4:

“This is what the LORD says to me: “As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey— and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor— so the LORD Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights.”

Studies show that the roar of a lion can be heard up to 5 miles away! The roar announces the presence of the king of the animal kingdom. It leaves no doubt in the minds of all living creatures within earshot that the “King is present!”

Not only does a lion’s roar mark out the boundaries of its territory, but it can also be a rallying point for straying members of its tribe. This has amazing prophetic implications as we enter a season of a harvest of souls and a transition from priestly ministry (intercession) into kingly ministry (authority) in our intercession. The roar of the great Lion King is signifying great change is coming!

In our generation, I believe that we are going to see a great awakening – the latter rain – that will contend and conquer the spirit of this age. I believe that this end-time REVIVAL will commence during a time of great trouble in our nation (Romans 5:20). Yet, where sin abounds God’s grace will much more abound. I believe that this end-time harvest will usher in the return of our King Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah.

It is time for the Lion within us to roar! I believe that during this end-time harvest, God will endow us with POWER to do great exploits in His name: Heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils, and win souls for the Kingdom of God – Rak Chazak! (Mark 16:17-18)!

Daniel 11:32:

“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”

Rak Chazak!

There has been an ancient war cry throughout all generations. Rak Chazak is of Hebrew origin. Rak Chazak is pronounced rock ca-zock.

Rak Chazak is the rock-like “oomph” of the spiritually zealous heart, the game face of a mighty man – the lion hearted warrior!

Rak Chazak is heavenly audacity, it’s rushing headlong into the most hazardous and impossible battles without pausing to consider the impossibilities knowing that God has given His enemies into our hands and we know that we will not lose. That’s Rak Chazak!

Who had Rak Chazak in the bible?  David against Goliath (I Samuel 17:1-58).   How about the Prophet Elijah when he slew the prophets of Baal (1 Kings Chaper 18)? That’s Rak Chazak!

Be strong and of good courage, for the Lord our God is with us!  God will never fail or forsake us.  Be strong and of good courage! We obey – God Wins! Be strong and of good courage! Rak Chazak!

The Lion of Judah’s Roar!

Battle the Enemy with the Bible

As we know, Judah is one of the 12 tribes of Israel and Judah means Praise. With that in mind, let’s consider the following four scriptural points as it relates to the Power and Purpose of High Praise.

Praise Is the Place of God’s Residence:

Psalms 22:3:

“Yet Thou art Holy, O Thou who art enthroned upon the praises of Israel.”

Psalms 22:3-5:

“But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in You; they trusted, and You delivered them. They cried to You, and were delivered; they trusted in You, and were not ashamed.”

Praise Is The Way Into God’s Presence:

Psalms 100:4:

 “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.”

Praise Is A Garment of The Holy Spirit:

Isaiah 61:3:

 “To grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting, so they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Praise Is A Weapon of Spiritual War:

Psalms 50:23:

“He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; and to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God.”

A Proclamation of Rak Ckazak!

Father, in Yeshua’s name, we call forth the Roar of the Lion of Judah in our lives, families, cities, in congregations, and society once again. We desire to roar like lions in our prophetic intercessory encounters. Lord grant unto us a Rak Chazak warcry in our hearts knowing that You will empower us to win every battle! We welcome the sounds of heaven into the earth realm today. We declare that as we release the High Praises of God it will be a powerful weapon of spiritual warfare used to silence the works and power of the evil one in Yeshua’s name. Amen and Amen! Rak Chazak!

Between The Porch & The Altar


Between The Porch & The Altar

JOEL 2:17:

“Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say , Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?”

Greetings Beloveds,

Believers are being shaken by one crisis after another. Our nation is in trouble. The people are in trouble. Our land needs healing. The shedding of innocent blood through abortions are daily occurrences. Unholy legislations have redefined God’s plan for families. Meanwhile, our children are being lost to a world of defiance, drugs, and decadence.

Who Will Weep For The People?

The prophet Joel declares, “let the priests weep.” In modern times, priests are ministers of the Lord. Priests are defined as persons called to act as a mediator or intercessor between God and man in prayer and cultivates deep devotion towards God in the hearts of the people through pastoral care and guidance.

Let The Priests Weep. 

To weep is to shed tears, to express grief or anguish. To weep speaks of a level of intensity. One may weep out of dispair, sadness, and sorrow.

Between The Porch & The Altar

According to a description written by LeVite Camp, “The porch and altar references the layout of the ancient Temple. The porch was at the front of the sanctuary. Beyond the porch was the entrance into the Holy Place. The porch opened outward into the Inner Court which contained the large altar. The place between porch and altar was the place where the priests made intercession on behalf of the people of God who remained in the outer court, just beyond the walls.”

Today we need priests and shepherds to lead the way to prayer. As priests, we must show the people by example how to rend our hearts and cry out to God in humility, brokeness and repentance. When the priests weep and cry out for mercy then the people will weep and cry out for mercy. When the shepherds fall on their faces before the king and seek His face in fasting and praying then the people will follow.

Why Should The Priests Weep?  

We should weep for the disobedience of God’s people. We should cry out for God’s mercy, strength, and grace that the church would regain her position of authority. We should cry out so that God’s wrath would be turned and that God would grant a blessing instead of destruction.

What Is The Result of the Priests Weeping?

Intercession and travail brings healing and forgiveness, the land is healed, what has been lost, or stolen is restored. When intercession goes up people turn from their sin and turn to a loving and forgiving God.

Let’s Pray:

Father, we speak the answer and not the problem today as we come to You, heavenly Father and pray for our ministers, pastors, leaders and shepherds. We lift up each and every one and we decree according to Your word that You give us pastors after Your own heart. We pray for the spirit of conviction and repentance to fall upon every pastor. We call them back to the altar and ask that You release a weeping spirit upon them, a burden for the unsaved, the hurting, the broken-hearted, the sick and the lost everywhere.

Father, we decree and declare that they shall cry loud and spare not. We decree and declare that they shall proclaim a solemn fast for Your people and lead the way back to the old landmark. We decree and declare that they shall not be ashamed or afraid of the people’s faces, what they will say or think but they shall speak boldly the truth. We decree and declare that their lips are touched with the live coals from heaven as they cry unto You, Lord send me. We decree and declare that wisdom, knowledge, skill and understanding is theirs, the five fold ministry operates in their lives, they are clothed in sanctification and perfumed with holiness, You anoint their heads with the fresh liquid oil of Your anointing and it flows down their robes and out to Your people. We ask You to send the warring angels to assist with the warfare that is certain to come as our leaders make a re commitment to You.

Father, we ask that You send Your ministering angels to minister to their every need. We cover them, their ministries, homes, families, finances, and every aspect of their lives with Your blood. Now, father we bow down before You and we thank You for refreshing, reviving and restoration of the priest, the minsters of the Lord. We worship You and give You glory because You are almighty, and all powerful. In Yeshua’s name. Amen
