At the close of the Thursday night service, Rev. Phil Privette, through the gifts of tongues and interpretation, spoke these words to Lynette:

You went down one woman, but you came up another!

For the glory of God and My Power shall rest mightily upon you.

Oh, ears shall be anointed to hear what I have put into your heart.

Revelation shall come forth.

You’re stepping into that new realm—

The realm of My Spirit, saith the Lord of Glory.

Yes, and I’ll continue to speak to you throughout the night—

Words that will bring forth encouragement and light and prosperity and blessing to the Body of Christ.

I’ll give you that strength, saith the Lord of Glory.

Yes, you have been faithful over little; now you’ll be faithful over much, saith the Lord of Glory, for the best is yet to come!

The new level of anointing is resting upon you this night as you go forth in My Word and My power—in demonstration of the Holy Spirit!

And a new depth of prayer shall come upon thee, saith the Lord of Glory.
