The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 

(Luke 4:18–19)


Advancing the Kingdom 

God is speaking to His end-time Church, and it is time for the Body of Christ to arise and take ownership of the earth for the kingdom of God. Always remember this,

  1. You are anointed and prophetically packaged to accomplish God’s work in the earth.
  2. Remain steadfast and faithful to God’s plan for your life like Joseph and Esther; you may be called to affect the destiny of an entire nation.
  3. God promised to never leave you or forsake you.
  4. Trust God’s Word and live by faith.
  5. Stay in Love (God).

You have been sent and equipped to advance God’s kingdom in the power and authority of Almighty God. So climb, conquer, and possess your mountain, and don’t stop until the work is finished!


Dear God, I declare I am anointed for such a time as this. I will take my place, stand my ground, and possess the mountain that God has assigned to me. And, I won’t stop until the work is finished! In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
