Eight years ago, my wife Sharon and I were at a crossroads. We were leading a church in the suburbs of Los Angeles and running a House of Prayer steps away from the old historic Azusa Street Mission. We had seen the Lord move in some significant ways as we prayed for another outpouring in the city that we called home. At the end of 2010, our spiritual mom, Cindy Jacobs, gave us a word that it was time for us to step into the heart of LA (which we knew was Hollywood).
July marks the second half of 2019, and as I was asking the Holy Spirit what He was saying for the remainder of this year, I saw a cloak of courage coming down from Heaven like a cloud, resting upon the Body of Christ. I heard the Father speak to my heart, “In the next six months you will see and feel courage rest upon your shoulders like you have never felt before. I am mantling you with a cloak of courage. It is a cloak of royalty and it is the seal of your kingly authority. Where many of My children have been intimidated by the enemy, there is a fresh anointing that you will physically feel upon your shoulders, moving you into a courageous determination to seize your promises.”
