This message is titled "Welcome to September"

I’m pretty sure, that I’m the first person to officially welcome you to September, since you left August. If you look at your calendar, it is prophesying to you, if you will see the prophetic in the numbers…. September is the 9th month that is now declaring itself into our lives and God has a lot to say about this month…The ninth month is a turn-around month, if you are able to receive it….One of the properties and characteristics of the ninth month is the fact that it is the completion of the gestation period for human pregnancy and the birthing of new life.

ISAIAH 66:7-9: “Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things?” (that means, the things God is about to do, or make happen in your life would be an amazement to everyone) “Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children…Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says Thy God.”

Zion always refers to the seat of power, as well as God’s spiritual kingdom. In Hebrews 12:22 Paul says, “We have not come to Mount Sinai, but “to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem”. The spiritual is operating through the physical…. Peter, refers to Christ as the Cornerstone of Zion: 1 Peter 2:6 “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame”. 

When we receive Jesus as our savior, God places the corner stone in our lives. You don’t lay a cornerstone without the entire building being planned out which will be built upon it! God has the building for our lives planned out, He has the blueprint, and every item is covered as we live our lives open and available to Him. That cornerstone is the guarantee that the rest of the building is ready as we allow His will in earth as it is in heaven. Let the master build what He intends upon the cornerstone He has laid in you… 

Revelation 19:10 “The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. The word of God is a prophetic book, which is prophesying into all of our lives, if we will receive it, the blessings become ours, and the curses and plans of the enemy are broken as the schemes of the accuser are exposed and annihilated !

If you were to ask many guys what season it is, they would tell you it is either Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Hockey, (maybe racing season). But God wants to invite us to His season of intense promise, celebrated by the Jewish people as the month when the biggest Birthday of all took place. When the creation of the first humans on earth took place. Statistically, September is the most popular month for Birthdays, and the 9th of September is the most popular day of the month for births! Mary was born in September, and Jesus was actually born in September and not December… (sorry to pop your religious calendar bubble) 

September is the month of beginnings. We did not begin as ameba’s that crawled out of the slime, grew legs and evolved into monkeys, that became humans. But as a fully formed, amazing, brilliant, perfect specimen of manhood, with Eve inside of him, in the form of his rib, waiting to be fashioned by God. Scientist were not there to observe, so they have a theory, but God was there to tell us about it!

After a lesson on creation at school, a curious young boy asked, "Dad? How did we get here?" the dad said "Remember God created EVERYTHING in six days. On the sixth day, he scooped up some dust and made Adam. He took one of Adam's ribs and made Eve. They had kids and their kids had kids and so on, so that's how we're here." Not entirely convinced, he asked his mom who was not a Christian, the same question. Well, his mom said, "Scientist tell us, It began with microorganisms. Over time they evolved--creating algae, fish, birds, tadpoles, for example. Eventually, -tadpoles ---evolved into monkeys and apes and eventually humans!!" Mom's explanation seemed more logical so the boy went back to his dad. "Dad are you sure about what you told me, cause Mom told me about evolution and how we came from monkeys." "Oh yes, Son. I told you the truth. Your mother was just telling you about HER side of the family."

September means “Seven” and was originally the seventh month on the Roman calendar, (that calendar was inaccurate) so it was changed to the ninth month on the Gregorian or Christian calendar in 1752. On the Jewish calendar, Rosh Hashana (The Jewish New Year) begins at sundown on Sunday, September 25th and ends at nightfall on Tuesday, September 27th. It is still positioned as the 7th month on the Jewish calendar, and represents “Completion”…

Jesus said “I am come that you might have life”…. But satanknows the cycle of gestation which births new life, so he commits himself to steal, kill and destroy, the new life that is being formed in each one of us…I need to tell you that when you check the back of the book, it declares in Revelation, that WE WIN! When Satan is attacking our family, our health, our finances, and our mission and ministry… I take a quick glance at the back of the book, and YEP, WE STILL WIN!!! 

There was danger in the manger. When Jesus was born in September, Herod got word that a king had been born and Roman soldiers were sent throughout the area killing all Jewish babies from 2 years and under. So if you have been in a battle, then know that there’s an effort to kill the promise you carry within you before it can come forth. Jesus was born in September during the feast of Sukkot, which is the celebrated as the first day of harvest September 21-27th. This was the blessing of the harvest, I want to welcome you to your September harvest blessing….These feast are not one time things but operate in a repeated cycle of blessing. God operates in cycles, and the best is yet to come for you child of God. 

Pregnancy is measured in three stages which are called trimesters. God is bringing you to your third trimester. Get ready to push! The month of September is “LABOR-ROOM MONTH”. If you have ever been in a labor room, then you know that the most common language of the labor room is “PUSH, PUSH, PUSH!” When Zion travailed she brought forth! Labor and travail can be painful, but you’re about to birth the new thing of God! He would not bring you to labor, if He didn’t include a successful birth in His plan. 

Way back, deep in the woods, a redneck's wife went into labor in the middle of the night and the local doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said "Here, you hold this up high so I can see what I'm doing" Soon a baby boy was brought into the world. "Hold on there," said the doctor "Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down....I think there's yet another one to come" Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "Oh my, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern...It seems there's yet another one in there!" cried the doctor. The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor, "Doc do you think maybe that it’s the light that's attracting them? So child of God, welcome to some light that is breaking through in the LABOR ROOM of September. 

September is about finishing what is incomplete, and bringing it forth to manifestation. Many of you will feel a movement in your spiritual womb (men and women). That movement is what God planted In your spirit and it’s been growing and developing. You’re going to feel a release as I’m speaking prophetically today. Your spirit is bearing witness with God’s spirit, that this is your truth. In the same way that Gabriel came to Mary and said that she was highly favored, I say to you that you are also highly favored. You did not conceive through natural means but through the Holy Spirit. The seed that has been implanted inside of you will be birthed as you yield to Him. Know that it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure. 

Luke 1:38 “Then Mary said, “Behold the servant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” As we say this to God, we place the results in His hands and offer ourselves as His willing vessels. Every mom knows that she doesn’t decide when the baby is coming, the Baby decides when it’s ready. We may call it a “planned family”, but it’s God and the baby that decide when the birth happens. The labor room of September is a place of expectations. An expectant mom should spend her time declaring positive, affirming, faith building thoughts, or she can become anxious and fearful. The labor room of September is a place of conflict and warfare. Satan will do all he can to destroy what God is producing. So we must affirm that we are joint heirs with Christ and more than conquerors through Him. He has won and we are handed the victory! The labor room of September is a place where life and death hang in the balance. God says Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. (I’ll take God’s word for it) The labor room of September can be a place of joy or sadness… Isaiah 61:3 “I appoint unto them, beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.” (Who will we believe) The labor room of September is a place of fear or faith… Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and you shall have it”. (We choose to believe)

Satan wanted to turn September into a time of death at 9/11, But we chose to not let that happen. You may see the rubble of shattered hopes, broken promises, injustices, false expectations, trust that has been destroyed, and victims getting victimized again and again…. All around you… and it may seem that the good guy gets the left overs and the bad guys keep winning….

But on 911 we chose instead to rebuild, to hope, to believe that there was much more beyond and to arise from the rubble and shine brighter than before! If mere men can do that, what can your God accomplish in your midst!!! You may not look like much right now but wait till they see you then…The new trade tower which was raised from the rubble, is now the tallest building in New York. It is exactly 1,776 feet tall. How many know that 1776 is the year the founders of this nation, signed the Declaration of Independence, and have the right to rule ourselves under the banner of our God! “One Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Genesis 18:14: “Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah (her name means “to fill and release”) shall have a son.”

Genesis 21:1-2: “Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. Sarah (to fill and release) became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him.”

TODAY I WELCOME YOU TO YOUR SEASON OF BIRTHING THE IMPOSSIBLE, IN JESUS NAME. This is the season for things to happen when it looked like there was no way it could be possible. John 3:6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit” 

Four men are waiting in the lobby of the hospital due to Covid, while their wives are in labor. A nurse walks out and tells the first man his wife just had twins. He says, “That’s funny, I work for the Minnesota Twins!” A little later the nurse walks out and tells the second man his wife had triplets. He says, “That’s funny, I work at the 3M company!” Shortly after that the nurse walks out and tells the third man that his wife had quadruplets. Laughing he says, “That’s funny I work at the Four Seasons!” Finally, the nurse walks up to the fourth man who is very upset and extremely nervous. He is shaking and sweating. The nurse asks him what’s wrong and he replies, “I work at the 7 Up bottling Company!” This is your season of abundance, no matter where you work!!!! God has promised full measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over!!!

God told Israel, every place your foot shall tread, I have given it to you… Walking upon it was a way of taking possession of it. We walk on it, through praise and thanksgiving, through speaking and confessing God’s word, God’s intentions, and God’s promises. We walk on it through obedience and surrender. We walk on it by standing in faith and refusing to be moved. We walk on it by letting God position us and connect us in His way and His time…God is prophesying over your life through His appointed September. 

This is the month of the latter rain which Joel prophesied about in the book of Joel for the last days…. The latter rain came in September to ripen the harvest, and bring the harvest cycle to completion. It was time for the harvest to go from the seeds planted in the field to the increase that is brought into the barn, from promise to reality and possession….The latter rain is prophesying into your life….

As I was writing this message, Holy Spirit said…

“September is your month for new things and open doors, in the name of Jesus. You will experience the hands of God over your life this month in an unusual way. God’s favor will be running after you and overtake you as you go! Your children will rise up with the blessing upon their lives becoming more evident and manifested. What others have failed to achieve, you will see come to pass. Curses that have been designed against your marriage, finances, business, ministry, or health are broken this month and its going to turn around. The seeds of offerings and tithe that you have given out in the past without much tangible results, will begin to speak out for you, and be gathered unto you beginning this month, in the name of Jesus. You shall be guided and protected from evil arrows that have been sent against you, and no weapon shall prosper against you. Sickness and disease shall begin to let go and fall away and off of you. You will feel the release that you have known in your spirit. In this month of September, whatever represent delay and failure that you’ve experienced, will be no more, it shall vanish like a mist. Court cases will turn around for your good, and the feeling that you are going up stream against the current, will change and push you instead of pulling against you. Surprise meetings will result in permanent friendships and relationships. The blessings from heaven shall fall like rain upon your family this month, in the name of Jesus. Every power and evil scheme, secretly attacking you shall be exposed in the name of Jesus. Every spirit of poverty and waste that has attached itself to your life shall be destroyed by holy fire, in the name of Jesus. The season of barrenness has expired and it’s shelf life has ended. The Lord is giving you a new garment of restoration, healing, deliverance, and success this month, in the name of Jesus. Problems you have carried for years, are ending this month, in the name of Jesus. There is a new anointing of favor coming to you, and prophecies that you have received before, they shall begin to manifest at this time, for it is the appointed time, in the name of Jesus”.

Let’s declare this together…..”We declare over the womb of September, there shall be good news conceived for our sake and the kingdoms. You shall not be aborted! You shall not be miscarried!! You shall not be still-born. You shall be birthed alive, In the name of Jesus. We declare that our Lord, shall protect and defend our harvest. Hear the word of the Lord, and bring forth my turn-around, and my breakthrough, in the name of Jesus. Because my help comes from the Lord, I have assistance and support beyond my abilities, so that the impossible becomes possible. In this birthing month, I will experience Divine acceleration and supernatural multiplication through my God. Holy Spirit, awaken all that is dormant within me, that it may be activated and manifested. I will lift up mine eyes unto THE HILLS, where my help comes from. My help comes from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer my foot to be moved. I declare the protective shield of the Almighty, over my life and family. I invoke the protective shield of the Almighty against every storm which is fashioned against my life. The Lord is my keeper, I shall not be hurt or stranded. The Lord is my preserver, my destiny is secure. I shall not want, for He supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory. He has arisen with healing in His hands and authority over every ailment and affliction. I am His and He is mine, and nothing can come between us. He has won the battle so I can enjoy the victory, and receive the rewards of His triumph, in Jesus Name”.

Receive it and give Him praise for it. Praise Him like you believe it! This is your latter rain month. Oh, yes, Welcome to September, welcome to your reward, welcome to your harvest, welcome to the promise fulfilled. You will not come to the birthing without bringing forth! We release it!
