My Power Is In Portland

By Chad Taylor

This city is a pivotal place of power says the Lord. A hinge on the door of revival. A foothold into the higher places of My glory. Many will pass through her and be saved. Portland is positioned for an open Heaven. Like the shepherds in the field by night, so will they be in this place of visitation. In the fields by night. I will set a precedence in Portland. Nations will look to her and be glad. A city upon a hill that cannot be hid.

I have positioned Portland says the Lord. A crossroads of My glory and power. Portland is a pinnacle of My presence. A Jerusalem, a Judah. In it you will hear My voice. >From her streets you will find the treasures out of darkness that hold the secrets to the future. In her you will discover keys of revival and restoration, stored up for generations and generations. Prepare yourself O Portland for the former and latter rain. I am going to pour out on Portland, I am going to pour out on Portland.

In this hour I will break down the barriers that have separated church and state, church and street. I will force the issue of outreach and evangelism in this place. I will move the fire and water until My church follows. I will blow upon Portland's surplus until she obeys by command to go. I will close the doors of opportunity if she does not hear My voice, "Whom shall we send? Who will go for us?"

Portland is a spiritual power source. The enemy is trying to tap into it and steal the hidden treasure. Do not allow another generation to be lost Portland. Do not allow another day of visitation to set. Seize the moment Portland! Seize the day of the Lord! This is My appointed time, the day of your salvation is at hand. The day of My sovereign plan. Behold I stand at the door and knock Portland, behold I stand at the door and knock.

Do not overlook the youth, for in them you will find My heart. In their heart you will find My heart. Phenomena's amongst the youth are about to take place. Market place prophets in Portland, prophesying, preparing, the way of the Lord. Youth in the hi-ways and bi-ways of Portland with power and position possessing the land. Portland it is time to possess. How long will you be slack to go in and possess the land that I have promised your forefathers? Portland, I have promised the heathen as you inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth as your possession. Stir yourself O daughter, stir yourself.

I stand to the East and I knock. Then to the West and I knock. Now at the North I knock. In the South I will visit as well. In the South East I will come with a whirlwind and a fire. To the west I will throw down the walls that have divided. To the North I will come in like a flood washing away the debris of division. I am coming says the Lord! I am coming with My presence and power to Portland! The day that they have looked for afar off has come! The day of their visitation is here!
