“Then Isaac trembled exceedingly, and said, ‘Who? Where is the one who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate all of it before you came, and I have blessed him—and indeed he shall be blessed’”(Gen. 27:33).


“Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea, and Rebekah his wife conceived” (Gen. 25:21).

Resurrection Seeds Sown When We Plead with God


I have come to see that sometimes God will require us to plead with Him. This releases a prophetic promise and resurrection anointing that goes far beyond just that what we are praying for. This prophetic promise/resurrection anointing ensures the power of death and destruction are broken and that God’s purposes come to pass.


I was led to see this in a very unusual way as I was preaching this past Sunday.


We started with praying in tongues, and the Holy Spirit immediately led me to the scripture where the people trembled when they saw/heard the fire of God on mount Sinai (Exod. 19:16). Then the Lord reminded me of how Isaac trembled when he realized how close he had come to completely missing God’s plan through his intention of giving the blessing to Esau and not Jacob (Gen. 27:33).


We know Jacob pretended to be Esau and got the blessing by deceit (I feel it was unnecessary and that somehow God would still have overruled). But while giving the blessing, Isaac could feel the strong anointing and power of God. It was God’s confirmation that Isaac had blessed the correct son. It was only later when Esau arrived that Isaac knew he had blessed Jacob. He probably knew that it should have been Jacob all along. Thus, he trembled and shuddered because he avoided what could have been a disastrous outcome.


For some reason, Isaac forgot—or tried to ignore—the promise God gave him and Rebekah before the twins were born, a promise that “the older (Esau) shall serve the younger (Jacob)” (Gen. 25:23). It was against protocol—the oldest should receive the blessing. Perhaps Isaac willfully ignored that. But God overruled. The correct son, Jacob, got the blessing, and thus God’s covenant plan that began with Abraham could go on. Otherwise it would have been halted.


Pleading with God—I was then led to read the following: “Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea” (Gen. 25:23, NKJV, emphases added).


To plead with God is a seldom-used, but very powerful thing. It comes when we are in a desperate or impossible situation. I think the Lord sometimes sets things up this way so we have no choice but to plead with Him. When we do, He does more than just answer the need. It seems as if He also implants a resurrection seed or anointing into the situation to ensure some much greater fulfillment—to ensure it comes to pass, even after a long time. God heard Isaac’s plea and not only granted children, but also put a prophetic promise or seed of resurrection into that fulfillment. Later, even though Isaac himself forgot, and was nearly the instrument of sabotaging God’s plan, that anointing or prophetic promise stopped the enemy’s plan and God’s purposes prevailed.


The Lord then reminded me of the ruler of the synagogue who pleaded with Jesus to come heal his daughter. We read, “He pleaded earnestly with him, ‘My little daughter is dying’” (Mark 5:23, NIV, emphasis added). The man returned home with Jesus only to find his daughter had already died. Jesus told him to be of good cheer and then resurrected the girl. Here again, we can see that the father was forced to plead. It released a prophetic promise/resurrection anointing. Little did he know that his daughter would come back to life.


As I was teaching this, I was reminded of something I had been forced to plead with God for. The answer came soon afterward. But just this past Sunday, my eyes were opened to a much, much greater seed that God had planted at that time, more than forty years ago. It simply is amazing.


The Lord is breaking all kinds of barrenness now. Many, many of you have obeyed the Lord by praying in tongues for thirty minutes daily for three weeks. Yes, barrenness is being broken, but it is also going far beyond what we expected or thought. Some of you will experience something like what Isaac did. A plan or promise from long ago that was forgotten is now being revived. Sons or daughters that were called of God many years prior but who then wandered away are now being “resurrected.” The prophetic seed placed in them will now grow and bring forth miraculous life.


Yarn Alive—No Summer Vacation!


Thank you for praying for and supporting Yarn Alive, which is pretty much back in full swing. Because Yarn Alive activities were suspended for nearly four months, the women don’t want to take time off during the summer. August usually is an “off” month. But not this year! They don’t want any more time off.

GYM—Get Rid of Self-Sabotaging Issues


This is the third week now that I am posting about GYM. Not just coincidentally, the present Hebrew month, Tammuz, is about shining brighter and brighter. We are not to be like Reuben, who had such incredible potential. Jacob described him as “the beginning of my power, with excellence and dignity.” But he did not live up to it because he was “unstable as water” (Gen. 49:3–4). He meant well, but sabotaged himself and didn’t deal with his issues.


Too bad Reuben didn’t have something like GYM to help him deal with those self-sabotaging issues. The next month, Av (which begins on July 22), is about “being concerned about our lives.” The month is linked with Simeon, who also messed up his life. Again, I urge you to sign up for this course. (It’s held in English and Japanese.)


GYM is a forty-week course that Mike and Rachel designed and run. The Lord has used it to establish proper foundations in many believers’ lives. The course runs from September 17, 2020 through July 15, 2021. For more information, please visit https://www.catchthefireasia.com/gym.


Thanks so much for praying!

「イサクは激しく身震いして言った。「では、いったい、あれはだれだったのか。獲物をしとめて、私のところに持って来たのは、おまえが来る前に、私はみな食べて、彼を祝福してしまった。それゆえ、彼は祝福されよう。」」(創世記27章33節)


「イサクは自分の妻のために主に祈願した。彼女が不妊の女であったからである。主は彼の祈りに答えられた。それで彼の妻リベカはみごもった。」(創世記25章21節)

神に祈願するときに復活の種が植えられる


時々、神は私たちに祈願をすることを求めます。祈願をすることによって私たちが祈った以上の預言的な約束又は復活の油注ぎが解き放たれたます。与えられた預言的な約束・復活の油注ぎは死と破壊の力を打ち壊し、神の目的が果たされることを保証します。


今週の日曜日にメッセージをしていた時に、私は不思議な方法で導かれました。私たちが異言で祈っていた時に、主は私を出エジプト記19章16節に導きました「三日目の朝になると、山の上に雷といなずまと密雲があり、角笛の音が非常に高く鳴り響いたので、宿営の中の民はみな震え上がった。」。神は私にイサクも同じく創世記27章33節で「イサクは激しく身震いして言った。・・・」と書いてあると思い出させました。これは神の計画に反して、ヤコブではなくエサウを祝福しようとしていた時です。


この箇所では、ヤコブはエサウのふりをして祝福を奪ったところです。(ヤコブは余計なことをしました。神はヤコブの策略とは関係なく祝福していたと思います。)イサクはヤコブを祝福していたときに、強い油注ぎと神の力を感じました。これはイサクが正しい息子を祝福したことを示す神のしるしです。エサウが現れ、初めてイサクはヤコブを祝福したと分かりました。初めからずっとヤコブを祝福すべきと分かっていたかもしれません。だからこそ身震いをし、最悪な事態を避けたと分かったのだ思います。


何らかの理由で、イサクは双子のエサウとヤコブが生まれたときの神の約束を忘れていました。「兄(エサウ)が弟(ヤコブ)に仕える。(創世記25章23節)」それはその当時の常識とは外れていました。年上が祝福されることが常識でした。ひょっとしたら、イサクは神の約束を意図的に無視していたかもしれません。しかし、神の計画によって覆されました。正しい息子ヤコブが祝福され、アブラハムから始まった神の契約の計画が継続しました。そうでなければ、中断されていたでしょう。


神に祈願する:私は創世記25章21節を読むように示されました。「イサクは自分の妻のために主に祈願した。彼女が不妊の女であったからである。主は彼の祈りに答えられた。それで彼の妻リベカはみごもった。」


「神に祈願する」ということはあまり聞きません。しかし、とても力強いことです。それは私たちが絶望的、不可能な時に行うことです。時には祈願しざるをえない状況を神が設定します。その時は、神は必要以上に祈りに答えます。その状況に対し復活の種や油注ぎを与え、更なる満足感を与えているようです。神は、イサクに子供を与える祈願に答えただけではなく、預言的な約束と復活の種を与えました。イサクが神の約束を忘れ、その計画を妨害しようとしてても、油注ぎと預言的な約束は敵の策略を破壊し、神の計画が成就されました。
