Join us for noonday prayer Monday - Sunday 408-427-8847
After we have declared II Chronicles 7:14, "If my people who are called by my name, shall HUMBLE THEMSELVES and PRAY..."
After we have repented and turned from our wicked ways, let us take the next challenge.
Challenge: For the next 30 days, as a corporate body of Christ, we are asking for you to read Psalms 91 every day. Read it ALOUD! Let the enemy know we have chosen to dwell in the PRESENCE OF GOD!
"The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation. Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now. And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word: Numbers 14:18-20
Psalms 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of THE MOST HIGH shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Application: He (not gender-specific) to dwell means “to abide (To remain, to continue.) as a permanent resident”. Even in the SHADOW of THE MOST HIGH is a place of refuge.
Psalms 91:2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
I will say of the Lord,(This is a declaration of who HE is, Lord! I will declare HIS LORDSHIP over my life.)
He is my refuge (HE is my shelter, protection from danger. The place I can run into)
and my fortress: (A large place; there are many there. There are brothers and sisters in Christ who had made GOD the fortress that place of rest)
my God; (The Psalmist David has personalized WHO GOD IS IN HIS LIFE. I get excited when I read this part. HE is MY GOD! MINE. We can and need to take ownership of who GOD is to US, personalized; to ME.)
in HIM (I love this one too, it follows MY GOD. IN HIM. We can't be on the side, in front of, behind, on top, we have to be IN HIM. That is a position of vulnerability SURRENDER and TRUST.)
will I trust. (Here it is!) Will I TRUST. David is declaring "will I". There is NO OTHER option. No other recourse. No other decision. Will I TRUST! That is it! I am telling my doubts, fears, negative thoughts. I WILL TRUST!
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
Application: Surely he shall (You can firmly believe HE will do it) deliver thee (save you) from the snare of the fowler, (from the intentions and assignment of the wicked one.)
from the noisome pestilence. (The fatal deadly scheme sent to destroy. A disease that is set to kill) We are declaring complete delivery from the deadly pestilence of Corona Virus.
In The Name of Jesus!
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Application: He shall cover thee with his feathers, (In verse 1, it was the shadow of HIS wings. So, we moved from the shadow of HIS protection to under the warmth of HIS wings. This is the place of covering.)
and under his wings shalt thou trust: (It is in this place of safety (under HIS wings) is where we TRUST HIM.)
HIS truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (The TRUTH of HIS word, who HE IS..."IAM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE." is the shield that protects us. HE is our buckler. HE surrounds us.)
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; (There is no fear when YOU are surrounded by HIS Buckler and cover yourself with HIS TRUTH. The night terrors, schemes and plans of the enemy we will not be afraid.)
nor for the arrow that flieth by day; (No arrows of pestilence and disease; no wickedness or principalities will we be afraid. We rest in the PEACE of GOD.)
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
Application: Nor for the pestilence - (Plagues that comes against you)
that walketh in darkness; - (The Principality of darkness that comes against you in the night.)
nor for the destruction - (works of destruction sent to you.)
that wasteth at noonday.- (no matter what time of day, or what form of destruction coming against you. There is nothing to fear. When we hide in the secret place of GOD, no pestilence, darkness, destruction, or time of day will come against us.)
Psalm 91: 7-9
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even THE MOST HIGH, thy habitation;
Application: A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. (A small number of attacks in your side and a larger number on your right hand, but they won't come close to you)
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. (GOD will allow you to see the just reward of the wicked, those who have done evil against you. This is not an opportunity to gloat, rather pray for mercy, on your offender.)
Because thou hast made the Lord, (Because GOD is your hiding place, your place of refuge, there you can run into and be at peace. This is why HE is your vindicator)
which is my refuge, (HE is your shelter, a place of protection. HE is our FATHER GOD)
even THE MOST HIGH, (There is none other greater than HE. THE MOST HIGH GOD)
thy habitation; (We can run into HIM, for covering and security)
Psalm 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. Application: In the secret place NO evil befall (“To happen; to come to pass”) NO plaque (“To infest with disease, calamity or natural evil of any kind”)
Psalm 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Application: He gives HIS angels command over you to watch you to help you walk in the path of obedience, love and submission, and dependence to GOD. (in all they ways) This is the scripture misquoted in Matthew 4:6 and in Luke 4:10 by satan GOD will keep you in ALL YOUR WAYS. To preserve YOU. Psalms 34:7 The Angel of the LORD encamps round about them who FEAR HIM and delivers them.
Psalm 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Application: They (the angels) will hold you when you are about to fall. So, you won’t stumble or fall. The angels will protect you. You won't fall. Your walk is safe.
Psalm 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Application: You will tread (Spiritual Authority over satan, who is known as the lion who roars, the adder, the young lion, and the dragon will be UNDER YOUR FOOT.)
1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." Luke 10:19 “Behold I give unto you POWER (AUTHORITY) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the POWER of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Psalm 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Application: Jesus is my friend, “set his love.” This is a strong attachment. We are the object of HIS affection. Psalms 139:17-18 How precious are YOUR thoughts unto me, O GOD! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with You.”
will I deliver him – GOD will save you from hurt, danger, and trouble.
will set him on high – Philippians 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;”
hath known my name – “Isaiah 43:1 - But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.”
Psalm 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
Application: When you call on GOD. HE WILL answer (HIS promise) HE will deliver (HIS promise) HE WILL honour you. (HIS promise)
Psalm 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation.
Application: GOD will give you length, of your days, as you abide, dwell, even if it is in the shadow of the MOST HIGH. HE will show, give you salvation. The promise of life, that is extended beyond the grave.

"Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment until the indignation be overpast. For behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain." Isaiah 26:20-21

Remember: The church is not a building. Make an altar in your home for GOD. Every day meet HIM, at that altar.
When the Corona Virus comes knocking on your door of life. Ask JESUS to answer the door. Nothing else will do. Your degree, your neighborhood, your title, your looks, money, your job position. Who you know or where you have been will not suffice, ONLY JESUS! HE alone is the HEALER of body, soul, and spirit. So, my dear friends take these next 14 days, 30 days, 6 months of isolation, and spend that time with the MASTER of heaven and earth. It should be crowded. So just come in quietly and take a rest.
If you don't know Jesus as your Lord. Who will answer the door to the COVID-19 in your life? Nothing you have will cover you like the BLOOD OF JESUS! Ask HIM to forgive you for the sins you have committed. REPENT (TURN FROM) from the sins! Invite Jesus in, to be Master of your life.
HE is KING of KINGS, LORD of EVERYTHING!
Read Romans 10:9-10
Confess + Believe = Salvation
"The LORD is not slack concerning HIS promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING that any should perish, but that all should come to REPENTANCE. But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which, the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up". II Peter 3:9-10
Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. John 6:27
