New Zealand Prayer Leader Ps Warren Lyons from Call To Prayer Ministries International calls us from Friday 11th – 18th October to sanctify ourselves unto the LORD.
Make yourselves available afresh to His plans for us as intercessors and warriors of His Kingdom by acknowledging before Him that we are only consecrated and sanctified through the free gift of His grace and mercy by the blood of Jesus where we now stand justified; forgiven and cleansed through the blood of Jesus.
We need to receive a fresh anointing from the HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS ONE to be able to stay focused on the victory He has given over all the powers and principalities when He defeated Satan at the cross as the HOLY LAMB OF GOD giving to us the power of His victory in His name.
The Lord has shown that when we are sanctified; our confession in and by the power of the blood will also will be renewed with a new confidence; strength and Holy boldness of His victory and the authority in His name that will enable us to speak boldly the word of God proclaiming His Kingdom.
- We are redeemed by the blood of Jesus; our names are written in the LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE
- We testify of the power of the cross and His resurrection
- We overcome Satan by the blood of Christ in His name and the victory He has given to all that believe on His name.
Be Prepared. Set yourself apart to the LORD.
As the spiritual battle intensifies to extend God’s Kingdom on earth against the principalities and powers as God fulfils biblical prophecy for Israel; we need individually as well as corporately to separate ourselves unto the LORD, allowing Him; our Heavenly Father to further anoint us afresh with the power of The Holy Spirit. We must tarry-wait on Him in thanksgiving; praise; worship, the bowing of the knee with the washing of the “Word of Truth” so we can receive this anointing to mount up in the “fire” and purposes of God for the end day battle; a Holy warfare, weeping warriors of fire with swords of fire (His Word) standing at the Gates of Jerusalem and cities of Judah as well as our own cities and towns and communities; anointed with the power of the Holy Spirit and baptized with the “fire of God” by Jesus the mighty deliverer; freshly anointed for this time and hour; being set aside for the LORDS purposes to extend God’s Kingdom on earth and secure the gates as He leads us by the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and the Captain of the Hosts.
Jesus said: John 17:17 Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. John 17:19 And so for their sake and on their behalf I sanctify (dedicate, consecrate) Myself, that they also may be sanctified (dedicated, consecrated, made holy) in the Truth. Joshua 3:5 And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves.”
When Nehemiah restored the walls and re-established the gates of Jerusalem it was time then for the dedication of the walls and gates, a celebration with singing and gladness. Nehemiah called for the Levites (priesthood) to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication. [Neh: 12:27-30]. We read in the scripture verse 30 that the Levites purified themselves, the people the gates and the wall.
We need also to do this, sanctify ourselves, set ourselves apart. Jerusalem is a Holy City, the walls and gates are Holy as well as the people. We are privileged to be called to pray and make proclamation to the Holy City of God and to secure the Gates in prophetic proclamation; “Yeshua HaMashiach” as LORD of the Gates, this has been a Holy calling and a Holy sending by His Spirit and our need now is to bow the knee before God our maker and acknowledge that we are sanctified only and set aside by the BLOOD OF YESHUA (JESUS} the Holy Lamb of God; it is only through His sacrifice and death on the cross that we are able to pray and stand at the gates of the HOLY CITY OF GOD, humility is required in approach and is also required to enter through the gates. The “One” of all humility will be returning and entering through the gate of the east, the “One” who humbled himself unto obedience even to death upon a cross. This man God highly exalted and gave Him a name above every name; that at the name of Yeshua every knee will bow and tongue confesses that Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is LORD to the glory of God the Father.
7 Days of Prayer and Sanctification.
This is a time for us individually as intercessors and those called as watchmen on the walls and of the gates; not only for Jerusalem but also for our cities and our own nations that are called by His name FOR THE CLEANSING AND HEALING AND HARVEST of the land. FIRSTLY the LORD is asking us to sanctify afresh our lives to the LORD in all humility for the restoration and healing. When we come into divine order as Nehemiah did and in obedience to scripture [eg] 2 Chronicles 7:14-15] the LORD Himself will not only hear but He will cleanse and heal the land as we sanctify ourselves according to His will as HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; with humble and contrite hearts. You may as the LORD leads over these 7 days of sanctification; you may fast a time or times; day or days, kneel in watchful prayer and meditation of His Word. You may set yourself aside unto Him on the 7 days special call to the watchman’s intercessory army of God as the LORD leads you personally or join with us for this 7 days stand together to sanctify afresh (set ourselves apart to God’s Holy purposes) from the second Friday of October; Friday 11th to Friday 18th October 2013 inclusive; a 7 day consecration.
The Army of God is mounting up in all humility in the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, we are called into Holy Warfare; the camp of the LORD is HOLY. We are coming to Holy ground; the burning bush and to the Captain of the Hosts of the armies of God with His sword drawn; the LORD our righteousness and victory against all principalities powers and all wickedness in high places with our righteousness found only in Him; our victory.
As the darkness in this world increases the light and fire of the army of God will be seen and heard against unrighteousness and unrighteous laws breaking the curses that bind the people and the land. When God delivers His people He stands with His people as a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire, the army with swords of fire in their hands and tongues of fire resting upon their heads; baptised with the Holy Spirit and with the fire of God bringing the light and truth to the world of darkness and to those that reject the Lamb of God and make war against the Lamb and His followers of the redeeming power at the cross.
A PRAYER OF SANCTIFICATION
Father we give you praise and glory for your love to us; we thank you for your redeeming power; the very sacrifice of your own Son our Saviour and LORD the LAMB OF GOD Yeshua HaMashiach. We thank you for the blood that cleanses us from all our sins; we thank you that we are righteous only in Him. We separate ourselves and sanctify ourselves this day through the blood of Jesus as we mount up into Holy warfare through the blood of Jesus; therefore Satan has no right nor power over us; individually and corporately in the army of God because of the sacrifice of the Commander in Chief of the armies of God; Yeshua the Lamb of Sacrifice; that only through the blood of Yeshua HaMashiach we have our confidence and our victory that He has given who conquered death hell and sin at the cross for each one; so we confess our sins knowing that He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Praise the LAMB OF GOD.

And done this evil in Your sight— That You may be found just when You speak And blameless when You judge.5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
