Praise The Lord – Trinity Broadcasting Network – Paul Crouch – November 7, 1997
….I want you all to listen carefully. This is a word – a prophetic word that came to me on September the 25th. Now we didn’t have a clue that God was gonna do what He has done this week. We didn’t know. Now a few of you, God had tipped off. Who was it? I think you said it, Schaumbauch, when you came in, and somebody else said to me – it was you, James Payne – said it was going to be the greatest week that Trinity has ever had. And I said, “I receive it. I accept it.” But I hadn’t really had that same quickening in my spirit. I knew it was gonna be good, but didn’t know it was gonna be thisgood.
Well, this is from sweet little Judy Alsop. She’s one of our own sweet ladies that works here on the internet. She’s the one that takes many of your e-mails and things that come in off the internet and sends it to the right place. And this is the word of the Lord that came to her, and I want you to listen carefully. This is, this is awesome!
Now, remember, this is 9/25, so that’s 9, 10, 11, it’s not quite two months old, okay? And she sent it to me.
Paul. The ministry of TBN is about to explode. The platform I’ve given you to reach your…
Well, go ahead. Let’s give the Lord a – That much has already happened, hasn’t it? That explosion has just occurred.
The platform I’ve given you to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ is going to expand beyond your wildest imaginations. Kings and princes will plead for your help because of the power and the magnitude of this tool of Christian television I’ve placed within all of your hands. You must be ready and prayed up so that you will know how to respond to each request from these many heads of state.
She didn’t know that I was on my way to Jordan to meet King Hussein when this was written. Couldn’t have known it. It wasn’t known yet.
It is time, once and for all, to take your sword in hand, the mighty sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Speak it out. Proclaim defeat to the enemies of God.
Stand up, everybody. In the Name of Jesus, we proclaim defeat to the enemies of God. We speak it forth by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, and the word of our confession. The enemies of God are defeated in the Name and by the blood of Jesus Christ. They are under our feet by the victory of Jesus Christ when He said, “Behold, I am He Who was dead, but am alive forevermore, and have the keys of death and of hell.” We receive it in Jesus’ Name.
Well, we just did this:
Call for a public assembly. Gather men and women of God publicly on the air. Pray, praise and worship. Then openly proclaim the victory of God over the present challenges to the TBN station licenses.
Lord, God, in the Name of Jesus, we proclaim victory over these challenges to the licenses of the TV stations that belong to You, Lord. We proclaim deliverance and victory and release. God, this is Your year of Jubilee and Your year of release and debt cancellation, and we decree it, we proclaim it, we speak it by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, in Jesus’ precious Name.
Take authority over the principalities and powers that dare to threaten this ministry. I have raised it up from infancy for My own purposes, saith the Lord. Just as I commanded Ezekiel to prophesy life to dry bones, and they took on life, so I am commanding you to prophesy death to the threats, challenges, and bondages the enemy has placed on TBN. Command them to cease and desist, and you will see this dilemma die and disappear before your eyes.
God, we proclaim death to anything or anyone that will lift a hand against this network and this ministry that belongs to You, God. It is Your work, it is Your idea, it is Your property, it is Your airwaves, it is Your world, and we proclaim death to anything that would stand in the way of God’s great voice of proclamation to the whole world. In the Name of Jesus, and all the people said Amen!
It is time to move on. I have given a period of grace to TBN’s enemies and challengers, and I have used the pressure of this long trial to develop character and stamina in you and Jan and those around you who have held up your hands. But it is time to go forward. Speak, declare, prophesy the victory and purpose of God for TBN. No license will be revoked. No station will be shut down.
This is the Word of the Lord.
No station will be shut down. Oh, no, exclamation point! I am giving into your hand more licenses and more stations even more powerful than those that was threatened by the enemy.
The devil has shot himself in the foot.
It is time to push ahead into the promises of God. Call together the prophets, the teachers, the preachers, the pastors, the singers, and men and women of faith to agree with you in prayer and proclamation. It is time for the canceling of the enemy’s assignment against TBN. The time has come to declare victory and to move forward to appropriate all the territory the Lord your God has reserved for His will and for His purpose in this hour. Let nothing deter you from pushing forward. Put an end to this long battle once and for all and move into the new era of victory and expansion I am holding out before you. You have many warriors with you, both human and angelic. I will open your eyes as I did those of Elisha and his servant to see the chariots of fire surrounding you.
Is this the Word of the Lord?!
More are they with you than your enemies! Arise! Call the people of God together and seize your victory. Take hold of the prize of your high calling of God in Christ Jesus. I am giving you the nations for your inheritance. Come! Follow Me! We have work to do in many lands.
Jesus Christ, Captain of the Hosts
Oh, come on! Praise Him, people! Praise Him! Praise Him out loud!
Is this the type of example we should be setting for non-Christians? What would the FBI think of this death threat?
