“What more shall I say? I have not time to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, who by faith conquered kingdoms, did what was righteous, obtained the promises; they closed the mouths of lions, put out raging fires, escaped the devouring sword; out of weakness they were made powerful, became strong in battle, and turned back foreign invaders. Women received back their dead through resurrection. Some were tortured and would not accept deliverance, in order to obtain a better resurrection. Others endured mockery, scourging, even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, sawed in two, put to death at sword’s point; they went about in skins of sheep or goats, needy, afflicted, tormented. The world was not worthy of them. They wandered about in deserts and on mountains, in caves and in crevices in the earth. Yet all these, though approved because of their faith, did not receive what had been promised. God had foreseen something better for us, so that without us they should not be made perfect” Hebrews 11:32-40.
“The sleeping giant has been awakened. For so long there have been things that have prevented my people from moving forward. Inside each of you there is a giant. This giant has been dormant for a long time. But now it is time for it to be awakened.
For in times past, there were men of courage and might. They led my people into battles. They spoke and prophesied to kings. They took a jawbone of an ass and slew thousands of their enemies. And now, that same fervor, that same spirit of might, is upon you. For you can slay the enemy that is in front of you. The strength that Samson had, now you can have. The wisdom of Solomon is within you to perform.
For all these things that I would give to you, are not by you, but through my spirit you can perform mighty acts of valor. You will do these things as my spirit comes upon you. T he time for my men of valor has arrived. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord.”
