Day 37 - The Ancient Path


I sensed the Holy Spirit was telling me that millions of believers must seek God with all their hearts in fasting and prayer before he will intervene to save America.

When they came to the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, falling on his knees before him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic and he is very ill; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. I brought him to Your disciples, and they could not cure him.” ...And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured at once… this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:14-21
Years ago, I was mobilizing Hispanics to TheCall in the Rose Bowl. Afterward, a young Hispanic man came to me and said, “I had never heard of TheCall until today, but the name of my ministry is also ‘The Call’. I received it from a dream. In the dream, I saw young people falling into the fires and into the waters; the fires of witchcraft, sexual immorality and dark perversions, and the waters of suicide and drug overdose. I was so overwhelmed with the darkness that I tried to pull myself out of the dream. But then, I heard a mighty voice say, ‘The answer to this darkness shall be found in Matthew 17.’”
The young man awoke from this dream and immediately fell back to sleep. He then dreamed the same dream again with the resounding words, “The answer to this darkness shall be found in Matthew 17.” Once again he woke, went back to sleep, and dreamed the same dream again! This time, upon awakening, he looked up Matthew 17, not knowing what the passage was about. There he saw this scripture of the father crying out to Jesus for his son who was falling into the fire and the water. His ministry was The Call to prayer and fasting to deliver a generation!
All across California mothers and fathers are weeping and crying for their kids who are falling into the fires of drug addiction, witchcraft, and sexual perversion. The Church has given them only a limited answer. Seventy years ago men and women began to fast long fasts on water with no food. Water fasts - desperate to bring the deliverance, healing and salvation message of Jesus. Then the healing revivals broke out, of which we have only yet seen a glimpse of that power. I believe it is the fulfillment time for this dream.
Elijah, Moses, Jesus - all three of those men on the top of that mountain where Jesus was glorified - they all fasted 40-day fasts. Maybe it’s time to hear the demand of a generation for deliverance. Maybe it’s time we turn our face from being satisfied with so little. Maybe its time to go to the mountain of glory through fasting so that suicide can be broken and mental illness healed. Jesus said it in his great statement, “This kind cometh not out but by prayer and fasting.” There are no shortcuts to the full ministry of Jesus.
Seventy years ago Oral Roberts fasted seven months and the healing began.  It’s time for the ancient paths to be restored. The demonized boy puts a demand on the disciples of Christ once again. “Why couldn’t your disciples cast them out?” Let the partying end and the prayer and fasting begin! 

Father this young man was an Hispanic leader burdened for the Hispanic youth of California. God, we cry for a mass deliverance movement among the young Hispanics. Hear the cries of Catholic fathers and mothers whose children are in the hellholes of gangs, drugs and violence.  Release the power ministry of Christ. Return us to the fasting of Jesus so that the faith for deliverance would come upon the California Church.
