334 ASK Series# 1, God Needs You To Pray!!
By: Pastor D. Karl Thomas

1 John 5:14-15
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

John 15:16
“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”
Aiteo:—(i-tay-o) ask (48),  beg, call for, crave, desire, require

“The Greek word ‘ask’ … destroys the picture that we must pitifully beg and plead for the things we need of the Lord. You see, the word “ask” is the Greek word aiteo, a word that means to be adamant in requesting and demanding assistance to meet tangible needs, such as food, shelter, money, and so forth.”   Rick Renner

John 13-17 Jesus meets with His disciples before He is crucified.
John 17 probably prayed in Gethsemane. Amazing conversation to be invited into. So significant. 

John 14:13-14
“And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”

John 16:23-24
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”

Jesus is teaching His disciples about a shift in how the world is governed spiritually.

They will walk in whole new realm of power and authority.

I am going to restore to you the open deed, the right to rule and reign on earth, through redemption in my blood!!!

It isn’t going back to the way it was with Adam.

They will be taken into a new realm of Kingdom privilege that never existed before.

Hours before He is arrested He teaches a new way to interact with heaven.

ACTS they understood the authority and the use of the Name!!!
Acts 3:16  Peter heals the lame man using the Name!!! “ And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know.”
Acts 4:18
“So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach  in the name of Jesus.”

Acts 5:40
“…they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.”
Acts 8:12
“But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ…”

Something is about to shift in the cosmos and it will affect you in a big way.
For the first time ever … you will have dominion that can never be taken from you.
Your right to rule … your right to determine what concerns you … your right to call heaven to earth has been established in me … it will not be taken from you again!!!

I am going to restore to you the open deed, the right to rule and reign on earth, through redemption in my blood!!!

You have the legal right to move the good things of God from heaven to earth when you align your will with Gods will.
Your will moves God’s will from heaven to earth.
Nothing good happens unless you pray.

Let me show this spiritual principle in the Old Testament and show you how it applies to your current authority and prayer “in the Name Of Jesus!”  INHERITANCE … REDEMPTION

Jeremiah was locked up in the ground … holding cell … king mad at him for prophesying doom of Israel.  

BUT Now He prophesies restoration and beyond … And is commanded to back it up with a prophetic act.

Jeremiah 31:38-40
“Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that the city shall be built for the Lord from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. 39 The surveyor’s line shall again extend straight forward over the hill Gareb; then it shall turn toward Goath. 40 And the whole valley of the dead bodies and of the ashes, and all the fields as far as the Brook Kidron, to the corner of the Horse Gate toward the east, shall be holy to the Lord. It shall not be plucked up or thrown down anymore forever.”

Jerusalem … It is at those dimensions now!!! Today in our time 2014!!!

Jeremiah 32:6-17
“And Jeremiah said, “The word of the Lord came to me, saying, 7 ‘Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you, saying, “Buy my field which is in Anathoth, for the right of redemption is yours to buy it.”’ 8 Then Hanamel my uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the Lord, and said to me, ‘Please buy my field that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin; for the right of inheritance is yours, and the redemption yours; buy it for yourself.’ Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord. 9 So I bought the field from Hanamel, the son of my uncle who was in Anathoth, and weighed out to him the money—seventeen shekels of silver. 10 And I signed the deed and sealed it, took witnesses, and weighed the money on the scales. 11 So I took the purchase deed, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open; 12 and I gave the purchase deed to Baruch the son of Neriah, son of Mahseiah, in the presence of Hanamel my uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses who signed the purchase deed, before all the Jews who sat in the court of the prison. 13 “Then I charged Baruch before them, saying, 14 ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Take these deeds, both this purchase deed which is sealed and this deed which is open, and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days.” 15 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.”’
Jeremiah Prays for Understanding
16 “Now when I had delivered the purchase deed to Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed to the Lord, saying: 17 ‘Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.

Jeremiah says, “Lord why did I do that? I don’t understand why I redeemed what appears to be useless land.”

The time, right now, between here and eternity matters. You are called to reign in life!!!

Jeremiah 32:25-27
And You have said to me, O Lord God, “Buy the field for money, and take witnesses”!—yet the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans.’”
God’s Assurance of the People’s Return
26 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying, 27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?

God is telling Jeremiah that the Chaldeans may have the land now but I am going to redeem that land and restore it to my people through the right of redemption.

Jeremiah I want you to show as a prophetic act that you agree with the word of the Lord

As a prophetic act … buy the land … put your money where your mouth is!!!

This is a system established by God. It has spiritual implications

An uncle had purchased the land to get money to Jeremiah’s family … Jeremiah had the right to get it back both by redemption and by Inheritance.

The word of the Lord was, Redeem the land, it is yours by inheritance but I want you to redeem the land.

Jesus was not going to wait until the end when He could get everything back by inheritance. He wanted it restored now through redemption!!!

2 Rights:
1. Right of Redemption — I can buy the land back at any time.    Before Jubilee
2. Right of Inheritance — The land will come back to me at Jubilee no matter what.

2 Deeds:
1. Sealed Deed — It has been given to my family forever … it belongs to us … God gave it
2. Open Deed — It can be sold to another if I am in need … or taken advantage of

At the fall the open deed that Adam possessed he surrendered to the devil. Man had responsibility to rule on earth.

Psalm 115:16
“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; But the earth He has given to the children of men.”
Man has a responsibility to have dominion in the earth.

Luke 4:6-7
“And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I “And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”

Revelation 5:9-10
“And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals;
For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”

Jesus had the right of inheritance but He exercised the right of redemption.
I’m going to pay for it in my own blood! (REDEMPTION)
You have now been restored with the open deed. DOMINION
You get to write what belongs to you. You pray in His NAME.

The sealed deed is secure forever. The open deed has been restored to you through the precious blood of Jesus. Now you can write on the open deed the purposes of God for your life. The devil cannot take it again. You alone allow, and disallow, whatever is in your open deed.

You don’t get it all back when He comes. You get it all right now. Jesus exercised His right of redemption 2000 years ago so that you can reign NOW!!!

Praying “In His Name” is writing His wonderful purposes for your life into manifestation right NOW!!!

Your right to call heaven to earth in every circumstance in your life has been restored.
You should pray!
God is powerful.
You should pray!
God is always GOOD!!!
