I pray that you are having an exciting summer. One full of fun, faith and setting things in order for your future. I've been having an incredible summer. I'm not sure when I've had summer like this one. I want to share with you what Holy Spirit's been doing in my life.
First I have been blessed above measure with the brothers of Global Men Prayer Network. This group of men gather every Monday night to receive exhortational teachings from Apostle Kevin Ford. Although Apostle Ford is the head of this network he is an humble servant of God who doesn't mind sharing the moments of teaching with others, including me. As we enter the presence of the Lord in worship many prophetic words have come forth in these weekly prayer gatherings . That's what happened to me on Monday June 4, 2012. One of the brothers, Prophet Pernell Robinson released a word over me that SET me in a new place. I'm still walking under the mantle of the word. I praise God for the fellowship with these brothers, intercessors establishing the kingdom of God in the earth. If you are man of God looking for a place of fellowship and agreement please join us this coming Monday night. Go to WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/groups/gmpnetwork for more information.
Second I entered into one of the most unusual educational experiences that I have ever encountered in my life. I am a student in the VOICES OF CHRIST LITERARY MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL. I am being mentored and trained as a Present Day Scribe by Apostle Theresa Johnson. This woman of God has been raised up and commissioned by the Lord to impart into those called by God to write and stand as worshippers in the earth the unique identity and calling on these creative artists. The courses that I am taking have stretched me and humbled as I'm learning what God has called me to before the foundation of the earth. I'm being led in unusual ways as Holy Spirit is taking me into new realms and giving me new experiences. if you are a writer and are not sure about the will of God for your gift I recommend VOICES OF CHRIST to you. Apostle Johnson has the heart of God and walks under a unique mantle for those who are wandering in the writing wilderness. Go to WWW.VOICESOFCHRIST.COM for more information.
Third I am getting ready to release my second book titled DIVINE FAVOR: GOD ACTS FOR YOU WHEN YOUR ENEMIES ACT AGAINST YOU. Divine Favor is already available as an ebook at www.bernardboulton.com/dfbook.html but next month it will be released in paperback. In preparation of this event I now have a new website. The designer is LOVE CLONES, www.loveclones.com owned and operated by Apostles Kevin and Candace Ford. Please stop by the my website, WWW.BERNARDBOULTON.COM and take a look.
There's a page on the website called Divine Favor, www.bernardboulton.com/divine.html where you can leave your own testimony about how God has favored you and you can leave your prayer request as you seek God's favor in your life and I will stand in agreement with you for His favor. Psalms 102: 13 says, "For the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come." I declare this word over your life. Leave your petition for favor and I will believe with you that this is your time for favor.
I've got more to share and I'll be back. God bless you.

Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Today July 4, 2012 the United States of America celebrates the birth of this great nation. On this day in 1776, 236 years ago the Continental Congress released a statement that declared the thirteen American colonies independent from the British Empire. This statement has been known ever since that day as the Declaration of Independence. The men who gathered in Philadelphia, as representatives of the American, declared the American people free.
As I was leading the congregation of the New Mine Creek Church on this past Sunday I was led by Holy Spirit to declare over God's people that we are free. Free from sin and free from eternal death through the declaration of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus declared, "It is finish." When that declaration was released in both the earth and the heavens it set every person, who would believe on Jesus Christ as the Savior and Lord, free.
And as I was praying on July 1 I released a declaration, not of independence, but of dependence. I started declaring our dependence on the kingdom of God. Today as the citizens of the United States of America celebrate independence and the forming of this nation I invite you to stand in agreement with me and make your declaration of dependence.
America declare its independence because it no longer wanted to be under the sovereignty of the British Crown. But for we who are free in Jesus Christ we need to be dependent on God our King. We need Him to help us be who we are called to be. We need Him to lead us where we are going. We need him to heal our hearts. The body of Christ cannot afford to be independent form the Lord. He is our vine and we our His branches. Our very life flows from Him.
Today I make a declaration of dependence:
1. I declare that I am chosen in Him to be holy and blameless before Him in love.
2. I declare that I am predestined to be a son of God.
3. I declare that I am accepted in the beloved.
4. I declare that I am redeemed by the blood.
5. I declare that my sins are forgiven.
6. I declare that I know God's will for my life.
7. I declare that I am an heir and joint heir with Christ.
8. I declare that I am sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
I declare, with heaven and earth as my witness that I need You Father. I need You. I come to Your throne of grace for help in my time of need. Abba Father I need You to order my steps. I need You Holy Spirit to lead me in all truth. I declare in the earth that I am dependent on Your grace Lord Jesus and Your resurrection power. I need You Father. I need You every hour.
Abba I stand in the gap for the United States. I declare that this nation needs You. Abba we need a restoration of values that reflects Your love and truth. Abba I declare unity and cooperation in our government. Abba I declare national deliverance from the strongholds of opposition and I declare that You are building a stronghold of cooperation. Abba I declare that Your righteousness is flowing in America. Abba I stand before You as an intercessor for this country that I love and I humble myself under Your mighty hand for this nation and I declare Abba that You are exalting this nation when You see humility in this nation. Abba I declare that where curses have been released in this nation because of its disobedience Your blessings are overtaking America.
