Residents of Stockton grapple with what to do about the insolvency of their city. A record of 34 murders occured in Stockton in the first six months of 2012. BEHOLD His mighty hand is upon our City and He shall deliver us from evil. AMEN ~ A trumpet of prayers has been blown, and God's army of soldiers girded by the truth are thrilled to serve the King of Kings. "But the priest said "Let us inquire of God here." REMEMBER: The Lord rejected Saul as King because of his pride. In this way the Lord answered Sauls prayer "May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if you do not die, Jonathan" But the men said to Saul "Should Jonathan die - he who has brought about this great surely as the Lord lives, not a hair of his head will fall to the ground, for Jonathan did this today with God's help." LET His church, His people, the ONE BODY OF CHRIST, rejoice in His power, and in His supernatural Way. Let us take NO PRIDE in what the Lord is doing, for what He began, He will finish with a blaze of His glory! "Then panic struck the whole army—those in the camp and field, and those in the outposts and raiding parties—and the ground shook. It was a panic sent by God." 1 Samuel 14:15 ----- then the army of evil began to melt away in all directions ----- the gangs, crooks, and those that seek to defile the City of Stockton, the grumblers, and those who rumble inside with evil desires, all are suddenly filled with a GOD SENT PANIC to run far away! As God's undivided church, His body of believers are unified by His Holy manifested Presence, by the authority GOD gave His faithful followers, we command that all division between His church, that all denominations come together as the Body of Christ and be convicted to confess and be instantly restored, enabled, encouraged and emboldened in their FAITH in GOD. LIKE NEHEMIAH, a great leader prayed: Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant of love with those who love Him and keep His commandments, let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open to this prayer that Your servant prays before You day and night for Your beloved people living in Stockton, California. I confess the sins we Stocktonians, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against You. We have acted very wickedly toward You. “Remember the instruction You gave Your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to Me ~' and obey my commands, then I will gather the lost from the darkness and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name. Lord Jesus we are Your servants and Your people, whom You redeemed by Your great strength and Your mighty hand. Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this Your servant and to the prayer of Your servants who delight in revering Your name. Give Your servants, Your priests success today by granting us favor. Let Your living water pour out and like the wicked witch in the land of OZ, may You Lord cause all evil to melt! "He will endure as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations. He will be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth. In His days the righteous will flourish; properity will abound till the moon is no more...For He will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will resuce them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in His sight." Psalm 72:5-15 NIV ~ In FAITH we circle His promises! Wise are we who look to God, who seek God, who cry out to God in faith ~ for our wonderful Father answers the prayers of His beloved in the City of Stockton. Halleluiah! Now the gates of Stockton are securely barred against all evil. See, that the Lord has delivered Stockton from evil. A band of more than 80 believers became Circle Makers, and this flock of FAITH filled people, stood in a circle, fully dressed in the armor of God, holding onto what they have, their shield of Faith, their firm CONFIDENCE that GOD is a KEEPER of His promises, they wore their Helmet of Salvation with a MIND certain of the powerful, transforming blood of Jesus, they SPOKE words of faith boldly that God would hear their collective cry for His help. Carrying the sword of the Spirit in their hearts, the living Word of God was dispatched to destroy the bondage of evil in Stockton. Standing firmly, wearing the breastplate of His righteousness, this band of believers steadfastly pray for Stockton for the next 21 days, knowing and expecting a supernatural deliverance, united in Christ as His body, we carry His word in front of the cross declaring that the enemy of Stockton is defeated and we shout PRAISE BE TO GOD! "And he ordered the army, “Advance ! March around the city, with an armed guard going ahead of the ark of the Lord.” For we are called His friends, and we call ourselves His people, and He is our God and we sound the trumpet of triumph! Joshua had commanded the army, “Do not give a war cry, do not raise your voices, do not say a word until the day I tell you to shout. Then shout!" We hereby circle the the city of Stockton with prayer and wait upon the Lord. We shall pray for 21 days expecting a miracle! "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." Matt 14:47 ~ Have mercy on us oh Lord and may you not find any of your priests in Stockton as hypocrites. "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." Matt 15: 7 ~ "Many who are first will be last, and the last first...but woe to you, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites for you devour widows houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation." Matt 19-23 "Therefore, since we have a great High Priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the FAITH we profess.....let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity." Hebrews chap 5 & 6 ~ The Israelites wailed to Moses that they tired of the manna God provided. Moses was honest with His Father and asked 'why have You brought this trouble on Your servant?...Where can I get meat for all these people? ~ Here I am among 600,000 men on foot and You say 'I will give them meat to eat for a whole month! ~ The Lord answered Moses 'Is the Lord's arm too short? ~ FAITH: Then the Lord came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took of the Spirit that was on him and put the Spirit on the 70 elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prohesied' ~ "Listen to My words: 'When a prophet of the Lord is among you, I reveal Myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams. But this is not true of My servant Moses, he is faithful in all my house. With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the Lord.' Being disatisfied with what the Lord has provided comes when our focus shifts from what we have, to what we do not have. NUMBERS chap 11 is a BIG lesson regarding Who we are to bring our burdens. When we complain about our hardships, and grumble to our leaders, instead of praying to God about our troubles, our lack of faith in God is our sin, we need to bring our burdens, like Moses to God, not man. JESUS knows our thoughts, He knows our motives and He says to His church, His body of believers "Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand." God used His prophet Isaiah to speak "Here is My servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in Whom I delight; I will put My Spirit on Him, and He will proclaim justice to the nations....In His name the nations will put their hope." Matt chap 12 Our God tells us the truth "I will put My laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying "Know the Lord, because they will ALL know Me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." Hebrews 8:10


  1. ANSWERED PRAYERS in first 7 days of prayer:
    On Sunday July 1, 2012 the Spirit of God caused Quail Lakes Church in Stockton to PRAY for the City with a teaching outline on 1 Samuel 14. "With God on our side we are the majority." Jonatan woke up feeling his oats and the strength of God saved his army by sending PANIC upon those that are up to no good.

    The Spirit of God caused LIFE SONG church to gather more than 300 believers to make a circle and PRAY for the City of Stockton with a message about how MOSES risked his reputation as he saw that GOD has no limits, He can feed 600,000 men, and God can cause the good people of Stockton to prosper. Halleluiah - to God be the glory forever!

  2. Quite the service at LIFE SONG on Sunday July 1, 2012! Whoa!!! We put the enemy of this city in his banished place!!! YES!!!!!

    Our Father, because of Your living Word we agree and celebrate that we are overcomers! We overcome the world, the flesh and the devil, by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony! Oh Lord thank You for hearing our cry, and our shouts of JOY over what future You have prepared for us! We praise Your holy name JESUS and speak blessings over our City of Stockton.

  4. A fortune teller tried to impart demons into the citizens of my city. Bill Johnson spoke firmly, yet quietly declared "You don't exist in heaven; you are not to exist here. This is my town! You are here illegally. In the name of Jesus I forbid you to establish roots here! God has declared that wherever the soles of my feet tread, God has given it to me. I bind you to the word of God that declares that I have authority over you. Be gone!" Bill Johnson wrote that this woman was not his enemy, nor was she his problem. The kingdom of darkness was his target! "When Heaven INVADES Earth" page 57

  5. We must give new believers their true identity and encourage them to seek after a power-encounter with Jesus!

    "When he picks up a Bible, his focus will not be on emotional healing or self-esteem. He'll ask you where the trigger is and how you fire it. When he read the Word, he will want to apply it to the taking over of neighborhoods for God!" Bill Johnson page 108
