Praying Over The Land: Covenant Renewing Ceremony
How To Connect With Creation”
When you are in an area that is not your own territory: Speak to the land or sea - tell it I want to meet you! Give creation time to speak to you. you will be amazed what you will hear. Earth is crying out, it is vibrating sounds we need to hear. Open your spiritual ears to hear it.
You can also lay on the ground, beach etc. to connect. (This is called grounding). Feel the earth, smell the earth to awaken your senses.
Let the sea meet your bare feet to connect with it.
Adam was created from dirt - We are connected with the earth. This is why we as Natives call it our Mother, (Mother Earth). The earth provides for us, nurtures us, feeds us, shelters us, heals us, brings new births in the plants, animals that are upon her.
It is an honor for us to speak of Mother Earth this way, to honor Mother Earth in all she has done for us.
Earth: Deuteronomy 28:3. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. (This chapter of Deut., is another listing of blessings and cursing given by Moses himself during a covenant renewing ceremony on the plains of Moab. (Joshua 8:30-35 talks about covenant renewing ceremony).
Re - awaken beauty in dark places: Beauty was given to us as a gift from Creator, that we may draw people back to Him. Creator is beauty, He made all things beautiful.. Beauty fell in the garden time to take it back. When Lucifer fell, beauty fell. Redeem it. (Paul Manwerth - Bethel Church)
Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man take up a lamentation for the King of Tyre and say to him “Thus say the Lord,”. “You were the seal of perfection full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.”
Beauty = Yophi derived from Yaphah, to be beautiful. The beauty that Creator bestowed upon Israel was extraordinary. (Creator loves all of creation - He spoke it into existence and called it good.)
Redeem the Earth to The Glory of Yahweh:
Psalm 66: 1-4. Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth! Sing out the honor of His name, make His praise glorious. Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power your enemies shall submit themselves to You. All the earth shall worship You and sing praises to You; The shall sing praises to Your Name.”
Numbers 14:21. “But truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.”
Covenant Renewing Ceremony:
Joshua 8:30-35. Now and Joshua built an altar to the Lord God of Israel…. Joshua built an altar to honor God and renew the covenant. The book of Deuteronomy records several important transitions, it records the transition from the first generation of Israelites, who died in the wilderness to the second generation of Israelites, who would possess the land of Canaan. It marks the transition of the Israel from a nation that dwells in tents to one that possessed land and houses, from the people who ate manna and water to the people who ate “milk and honey.”
Hebrews 8:10-12 for this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. we are grafted in. Know theLord, for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.
Mark 12:30-31. Oh and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. You shall love your neighbor as yourself
When you have received an assignment from Yahweh, prepare yourselves. Take a team with you who have the same mission for your vision. Worship together, pray together prior to going, (spiritual sacrifice of praise). Come in unity, release each other’s gifts (each one of us have a decree or gift to bring. This brings honor to Creator. Come with a good heart, consecrate yourselves, worship Him. Receive the battle plan. (We must have a battle plan before we go out). When are you to go? He is a God of every detail. Ask if you are to research the area for past defilement in the area, (Spiritual Mapping). He will give you scriptures to speak out. His word never comes back void. What instruments of praise are you to take to release praise over an area. What are you to decree out? Have communion with the land. Speak blessings to the land (return the land to worship Creator, especially where there has been defilement.). Speak blessings to the rivers and seas. Take salt and bless the land with it. 2 Kings 2:20. Salt brings healing to an area, land, rivers, & sea’s, where there is death and barrenness.
We are the end time task force rising up, we must take holiness into our places of authority. Is there jealousy amongst you – get rid of it. Is there unforgiveness in you – get rid of it. Is there unbelief amongst you – get rid of it. Is there a strife amongst you - communicate. We must be in unity. We must honor one another. We must be led by the Holy Spirit. Honor the one in charge of the assignment - walk with them not against them. Get rid of your own agenda. Embrace God‘s agenda in the assignment.
Psalm: 133: 1-3
When we have unity it is a sweet aroma to Creator and
from this realm of sweet harmony Creator will release His
eternal blessing, the promise of life forever!
Release the land from evil.
We should not go into other cultures, nations, looking
for the evil that is carried, we need to go, bringing the
real true Jesus, His love, His dunamis power that is
carried within when we have Him in us.
Jesus came not to destroy culture, He came that we
may have a relationship with Father God – Creator,
He came that we and all creation might have freedom,
to set the captives free and that includes you and me.
He came so the Great Holy Spirit could come and encourage us.
