This past week was one of the most amazing gatherings ever. We continue to witness the Apostolic-Prophetic Army arising and maturing for the future. Every speaker was incredible. You can watch the replays starting today. However, we will be playing Apostle Dutch Sheets’ message from Sunday morning for the next three weeks. In his message, Dutch used several number sequences to describe what the Lord is doing in the world and His Kingdom people. The last number sequence was 5-5-5. Five (5) is the number for grace! He said, “I keep seeing 5-5-5…it’s Triple Grace. It’s a Season of GRACE!” He went on to share how:
- There’s GRACE to go up higher to a new administration and governmental realm.
- There’s GRACE to come out of the confusion, disarray and disorder.
- There’s GRACE to bind and loose.
- There’s GRACE to open doors and close doors.
- There’s not just GRACE or Double GRACE, but TRIPLE GRACE! The LORD is going to release an explosion of grace!
Before the service, someone had come to give me a water bottle with 5-5-5 written on the outside with three $5 bills inside. I went up and shared this when Dutch released the word, and he shouted, “I’m telling you -- it’s a Word from the Lord! It’s an explosion of GRACE! We’re about to move into a MEGA GRACE Season! I’m not decreeing that just as a hope; I’m prophesying to you as a Word from the Lord. We’re about to move into a MEGA GRACE season that will be explosive in nature! Dynamite Grace, Dunamis Grace, Power and Grace mixed together. There is an EXPLOSION of the miraculous coming.” He then decreed how there will be:
- An Explosion of PROVISION!
- An Explosion of REVELATION!
- An Explosion of AUTHORITY!
- An Explosive Level of HARVEST and STRENGTH!
This is a season for TRIPLE GRACE … GRACE, GRACE, GRACE! This is the time for MEGA GRACE, MEGA HEALING, MEGA DELIVERANCE, and MEGA BREAKTHROUGH! This is a time for the GRACE of GOD to be released over:
- your mind,
- your home,
- your ministry,
- and over generational weaknesses, infirmities, and iniquities!
What the enemy has had in you and in your family line for generations will be broken by the explosion of grace that’s coming to you! This is your season of breakthrough! Fear will be broken off of you in this season. Generational weaknesses and iniquities will be bound and broken off of you. Perversions and addictions that try to rise up again will be eradicated from your DNA and genetic code. God is breaking that off of you because GRACE is greater than the sin of your parents and grandparents; every generational iniquity and weakness that the enemy has used to hold you back will be broken. Generational poverty and failure are being broken off of you because an EXPLOSION of GRACE is coming to you NOW!
Here is a 21-Day Prayer Focus for you to Shout GRACE and Receive FAVOR!
Day 1: Read Romans 6! Grace is kindness and goodness shown without regard to the worth or merit of the one who receives and in spite of what is deserved.
Day 2: Read Exodus 34! Grace is one of the key attributes of God. The Lord God is "merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth."
Day 3: Read Psalm 23! Grace is the source of help and brings deliverance from distress.
Day 4: Meditate on Deut. 9:5-6! The Hebrew people from Egypt were redeemed and then established in the Promised Land in spite of their unrighteousness.
Day 5: Read Psalms 4:1, 6:2, 25:15! Receive the gracious assistance from the LORD!
Day 6: Read and meditate on Psalm 31:9, 86:3, 86:16, 123:3! Receive more assistance!
Day 7: Meditate on Amos 5:15! Grace is only enjoyed within the COVENANT. The gift is given by God, and the gift is received by man, through repentance and faith.
Day 8: Ponder Malachi 1:9 and read Malachi 3 – 4! Grace is to be humbly sought through the prayer of faith.
Day 9: Read John 1, Acts 1! The grace of God was supremely revealed and given in the person and work of Jesus Christ. He was the embodiment of grace. Embracing Him is the only way mankind can receive salvation.
Day 10: Read Romans 3, especially verses 23-26! Grace is restoration of the broken fellowship between God and His people -- both Jew and Gentile.
Day 11: Read Ephesian 2! Grace can be yours through SALVATION!
Day 12: Read Ephesians 4! Meditate on Hebrews 10:29! Grace is applied by the HOLY SPIRIT, who is called "the Spirit of grace." The Spirit of God is the One who binds Christ to His people so that they receive forgiveness, adoption to sonship, and newness of life, as well as every spiritual gift of grace.
Day 13: Read Acts 4, especially verse 33! Receive great grace. Great grace was upon the Early Church. They saw great miracles. The Greek word for “great” is ‘megas’, from which we derive the English word “mega.” They saw great signs, great wonders, great miracles … mega miracles! Why did they see mega miracles? Because they had mega grace!!!!!
Day 14: Read Isaiah 60! Grace and FAVOR are a necessary handshake for triumph! Favor is where someone shines their eye on you and you begin to SHINE!
Day 15: Read 2 Kings 4:1-6! Favor is received through an act of obedience!
Day 16: Read 2 Kings 8:1-6! Favor is extended to you from another source!
Day 17: Read Ruth 2! Think of a time when favor was extended to you. Praise God for it!
Day 18: Read 1 Kings 12:1-16 and Esther 6. Think of someone you need to honor. Call or write that person to honor them. Honor must be reciprocated to maintain favor.
Day 19: Read Matthew 9! Favor comes from those who have authority to release favor.
Day 20: Read Judges 1:12-15 and 2 Samuel 9! Favor can be released by you!
Day 21: Read Zechariah 3 and 4. Decree that the Lord is reclothing you with a new identity. Shout grace to the mountains that stopped you from advancing in the last season. Shout grace seven times!
In Possessing Your Inheritance, I share a powerful account of how even in the midst of life’s greatest losses, God truly does extend the grace we need to press through. Gerald L. Sittser, an associate professor of religion at Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington, is an incredible example. In the fall of 1991, while driving home with his family, his minivan was hit head-on by a drunk driver. His mother, wife and young daughter were all killed in the accident. In his book A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows Through Loss, Sittser writes of his tragic experience and how God has helped him through it. He says:
Above all, I have become aware of the power of God’s grace and my need for it. My soul has grown because it has been awakened to the goodness and love of God. . . . God is growing my soul, making it bigger, and filling it with Himself. My life is being transformed. Though I have endured pain, I believe that the outcome is going to be wonderful.
The supreme challenge to anyone facing catastrophic loss involves facing the darkness of the loss on the one hand, and learning to live with renewed vitality and gratitude on the other. This challenge is met when we learn to take the loss into ourselves and to be enlarged by it, so that our capacity to live life well and to know God intimately increases. . . . Loss can diminish us, but it can also expand us. It depends, once again, on the choices we make and the grace we receive. Loss can function as a catalyst to transform us. It can lead us to God, the only One who has the desire and power to give us life.” (Zondervan Publishing, 1996; pp. 180-181)
By reaching out toward God’s wonderful grace, our loss can actually become a bittersweet blessing that leads us to knowing God on a deeper and more intimate level. Though we mourn the loss, we gain a new maturity in life, and a deeper understanding of God’s awesome grace and hope.

Key Resources to Help You Overcome in a Season of Grace!
Time to Defeat the Devil by Chuck D. Pierce
As we all know, times are changing, and there is a historic shift occurring in the church today. In the midst of this change the enemy would try to distort our vision so we lose our way. The Lord stirred me to write this book so we would not shrink back, but learn to see in a new way and embrace the authority and power we have been given through our risen Lord, Jesus Christ. The 20 chapters in this book will take you through a journey where you learn how to:
- break free from life's past seasons of trauma, grief and loss
- enter into a new level of freedom and victory
- walk into the new season and times God has for you
- understand and know the wiles of your enemy
- understand what vexation is and how to break its grip
Perhaps what makes this book most unique is the focus on how to break the power of vexation and to renew our human spirit. Like righteous Lot, the enemy seeks to vex our spirit so that we become traumatized and fragmented. If he can block our spirit, he can stagnate our relationship with the One who created us, and overtake our soul. However, we have a FATHER of our human spirit who is able to renew and nourish our spirit! Learn how He longs to see us restored and made whole, and how we can "exercise" our spirit and commune with Him in a new way.
