Instructions for Home Prayer Cells, 4/15/20

Persecution and the home prayer cell is what made the early church strong and it is what will make the Last Days remnant church strong. Truth and reality never change. God is immutable. It worked then and it is still his way. The Last Days remnant church will surpass where the early church went. But not before first returning to what it had in order to re-establish the original foundation.

having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,

We need to read the red letters. I go through Matt 5-7:27 and John 14-17 over and over and over.

Keep going, and expect persecution. Embrace it. Jesus called it a blessing in Matt. 5:10-12. We need the eager-to-be-persecuted-for-Christ mindset of Heb. 11:35. And keep the focus of the meetings on prayer(Isaiah 56:7, Matt. 21:13 Mark 11:17.) Pray in tongues as much as you can both when alone and when together.

I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all;

Lots of foolish immature charismatics say we don't need to press into praying in tongues. They call it striving. But God says "strive to enter the rest" Heb. 4:11. I have for 7 years prayed for anointing to be able to pray in tongues 24/7, even in my sleep. It was one of Paul's great secret to towering maturity in Christ. I want it too. Lead your group in it and you will be pressing into the Kingdom with great force:

Matthew 11:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

We are meant to be an army.

Isaiah 53:12
New King James Version (NKJV)
12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong...

Bless you and your regiment.
