Intercession Teaching

Let's begin with God...

and this God wants to talk to you...

Psalm 33:6 - "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth." (NIV)

Revelation 1:12-16 - "I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone “like a son of man,” dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance." (NIV)

and he wants to talk to you...

Why?

God speaks to you for relationship.

Isaiah 55:1-3

God speaks about the battle.

What does God sound like?

How does God speak?

God speaks through

The Holy Spirit

It's all about positioning.

Humility

Intercession - it's all about _____________?

Genesis 1:26-28

What was Adam and Eve given?

Genesis 3

What did Adam and Eve do with their authority?

Did Satan really get the authority?

Read Luke 4:6-7; John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11

Read Colossians 2:13-15 and Revelation 1:18

What did Jesus take back?

Are the keys real?

Does prayer really make a difference?

Intercession is....

  • Partnering with God
  • Co-creating with God
  • Praying for someone or a group of people (someone other than yourself)
  • Hearing God and praying his specifics for a person or situation
Ezekiel 22:30 - Stand in the gap
Matthew 16:19 - binding and loosing
Intercession is recognizing your authority and activating that authority as you bind up the enemy's work and loose the Holy Spirit's work on a person, community or nation.
Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 3:1-4

Intercession means to Evict the squatter.

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 - We are the enforcers of Jesus' victory on the cross. He is the Intercessor. We are the intercessors - spreading the news of what Jesus has done across the earth and evicting the squatter.

Intercession means to use your keys.

Intercessors of the Bible

The Steps of Intercession

Worship

Psalm 100

Confess

Psalm 66:18; James 5:16

Surrender

Proverbs 3:5-6

Resist

James 4:7

Invite

Galatians 5:25

Wait & Listen

Psalm 38:15

As you go through the steps above with sincerity, then wait on God, typically the next thing that comes to you is the voice of God. Trust him. If a bad thought comes into your mind, resist the enemy and then keep listening.

What to expect?

God will speak through a simple thought, a phrase, a song, a Scripture passage or reference, a movie, a feeling, a memory or a picture.

If you get one of the above, ask God for more clarity. Sometimes, you will get more understanding. Sometimes, you won't. When everybody has had enough time, then report back with whatever was coming to you. Remember - obedience to the promptings of God brings greater clarity in hearing his voice. So, don't hold back.

Remember - the Steps of Intercession are to give you the battle plan. The Steps are not the battle themselves. So don't get lost in the steps. Keep moving. Get your battle plan, so that you can be effective in your upcoming battle.
