What is faith? In its most simplistic form, I would say that faith is trusting God’s Word. Faith is more than a subject or a good sermon! It is something that was sown deep into your heart the moment you were born again, to transform and change you.
It finds a man full of fear like Simon, and he becomes Peter preaching boldly on the day of Pentecost where the church began with three thousand souls! It finds an unbelieving Pharisee named Saul who persecuted the church, and who then becomes Paul, the man who wrote 2/3 of the New Testament. Faith will not keep you where it finds you! It was given to produce change in every area in your life, so that you would rise up in faith and speak your way out of your situation and circumstance! That means the way you talk should change, the way you think should change, and the way you carry yourself should change! The seed of faith was given so that you would water it, so that you would feed it! You were created to grow in it to the point to where you would open your mouth and speak to the biggest mountain in your life and see it removed! It is designed to take you from sickness into divine health… to take you out of an impoverished situation into prosperity! Faith was sown in you so that God would raise you out of poverty and sit you before kings and princes. With it, you can do all things! With it, you can overcome ever obstacle standing in your way! With it, you can step into theGod kind of faith and the God kind of life! With it, we possess the spirit of an overcomer! Without it, we cannot please God (Hebrews 6:11), but with it, all things are possible!
Now, we declare over you, have faith that annihilates cancer! Have faith that defies the broken economy! Have faith that fills every emptiness in your life! Have faith that destroys the works of the devil! Have faith that bears fruit in every season!
In Jesus’ Mighty name,

Divine Increase!The Bible says in Matthew 21:10 that when Jesus went into Jerusalem, the whole city was moved. One translation says that the city was stirred! The word “moved” is translated to rock or vibrate! In Acts 4, the apostles prayed, “Lord stretch out your hand that miracles, signs and wonders may be done in the name of your holy child Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place was shaken! God’s glory invaded the place and it shook with power! The Bible says that many signs and wonders came from the hands of the apostles. They received fresh fire to preach the word with boldness! The apostles had a reputation of shaking cities with revival! They were carriers of revival! God is raising up those that will not just preach revival, but release revival! Smith Wigglesworth once said, “I have revival wherever I go.” There is a divine stirring happening within cities and regions right now! There is a great hunger in churches in America for God to release outpouring!
Increase in Hunger
There’s a divine stirring happening in America and a dissatisfaction for something more than we have seen in the past. God is translating the church into the new. Hunger will bring us into the new and when we taste of the new, we will be dissatisfied with anything else. The purpose of revival is for the lost to come to Christ! It is given to awaken the church into its true purpose! Power is always accompanied with revival! Miracles, signs, and wonders cause the lost to come running into salvation! “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel” (Isaiah 8:18). God is anointing His church for signs and wonders! God wants to release His river of power through His sons and daughters! God is anointing the church for harvest. Prepare for the increase of His power and presence! Isaiah 54:2-3 “Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; for though shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and they seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.” God is releasing fruitfulness and increase.
We must make room for the anointing! We must make room for what God is releasing in this hour! God has been speaking to me about preparing wine skins to steward the anointing! The prayer of so many is that God would release revival, yet we must be ready and prepared for when it is released! Are we prepared for the increase? Are we prepared to steward it? I believe that if we are intentional about what God is pouring out, He will use us for the increase! A true sign of revival is when the church increases in numbers. Jesus said to Peter, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch. And Simon answering unto him, Master, we have toiled all night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake” (Luke 5:5-6). The time of increase is now! The time of outpouring is now! We need to throw out our nets again, going into the highways and byways for the lost! He will fill our nets until we cannot contain the increase! I had a dream recently of a man worshipping, and the spirit of revival was being released through the sound of worship as he sang out, “Let it rain!” The atmosphere was filled with God’s glory! Churches and regions get ready! God is releasing the sound and spirit of revival! God is raising up those that will carry and release the spirit of revival! They will be forerunners of the next move of God’s glory!
A few weeks ago you prayed for a 15 yr old boy named Jamison that had a brain tumor on Periscope and I wanted to let you know that early in the morning the day before the surgery he went in and had a test to map the direction for the surgeons to go by and the tumor had shrunk. Not the end of the story… His mom met with the surgeon afterwards and he let her know that it had shrunk which was good news but that he would see her early in the morning the next day. She thought to herself I wanted it to disappear. Later that afternoon the surgeon called her again and said every time he looked at the MRI the tumor was getting smaller and smaller… Until it had completely disappeared! So the surgery was canceled.
God is so good! He IS faithful! Just can’t stop praising Him! I wanted you to know that your prayers are powerful. Thank you so much. Be encouraged. You are so valuable to God and the body of Christ!
“I just wanted to thank God for U, Jesse, & Mike for coming to Lighthouse in El Campo, TX. I was having nerve and bone issues due to my leukemia. Ya called out for prayer on this issue and ever since then I have not had an episode and all my levels on my blood work came down. Ya had said back issues. Which where I was having pain for 3 weeks my back would lock up because of my platelets being so high it attacked my blood and bones. Mainly in my back. That same evening as ya prayed my back got really hot and I was so full of joy. I had been in so much pain was heavily medicated all the time. I usually slept in a chair cause to uncomfortable in bed. I finally able to sleep in my bed after 3 weeks. Then the following week had IV chemo treatment. They checked blood levels first and said levels are down no m I really treatment needed. All GLORY 2 GOD. Thank Ya again. We will continue to keep U all in prayer. Blessings, from Tobar family”
Great meetings in Alabama! I called out a woman’s name (Sharon) and a condition (pain in the lower right back) and the woman on the right responded for prayer! Her name is Sharon and as I prayed for her, metal rods dissolved out of her back! She said all the pain left instantly and she was shocked to find that she could no longer feel the rods in her back! Jesse also prayed for the girl in the middle and she was healed of deafness in her ear she had from birth! Her ear popped open and she could hear! Praise God!
Keep us in your continued prayers,
