VIII. THE TRANSFORMATION WATCH OR FOURTH WATCH
(3:00 PM - 6:00 PM)
The Hour of Prayer: 3:00 PM!
Matt. 27:45, 46; Luke 23:44-46; Acts 3:1; 10:3, 30-32
This watch ushers in and begins at the hour of prayer according to Acts 3:1, Acts 10:30, Isa. 60:11-22. The one single most important characteristic or practice that identifies the church is Prayer. The most important privilege of the entire church is prayer and the only hour in the Bible that is specifically referred to as the Hour of Prayer begins at 3:00 PM. This was the time that the veil in front of the Holy of Holies tore from top to bottom.
This watch is, therefore, the time for access!
The Hour of Prayer, Covenant, Power, and Triumphant Glory. Time to Remove Limiting Factors.
This time is an hour of Revelation, hour of Grace, hour of Removing Veils (Luke 23:45-46), hour of Power, hour of Glory, hour of the voice of the Lord, hour of Triumph. This is the time to die to the world (self). This time is also the time of seeking the Lord in Truth. This is the hour of the establishment of the Kingdom, why? Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of His Throne.
This is the time when Jesus said “It is finished.” At 3:00 pm Jesus gave up the ghost. Jesus went through 6 hours of suffering for the deliverance of humankind and the universe. Pray for deliverance during this watch. It is also the time for the miraculous and angelic visitation (Zech. 1:10-11, 18-21).
This time also the time of the evening sacrifice. It was at this time that Elijah called forth fire from Heaven to consume the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel ( 1 Kings 18:29, 30, 36-39). Isa. 17:12-14, Matt. 27:45-61, Luke 27:45-47, Mark 15:33-39, Dan. 3:8-30, Gen. 24:63, Rev. 6 and 1 Sam. 17.
Scriptures to Pray: Eph. 1:15-23, 3:14-22, John 17, Jos. 7:6, 8:29-34. Isa. 17:12-14, Dan. 2:20-22. Also study Matt. 27:50-54, Mark 15:37-39, Luke 23:45-47, Dan. 3:25, 9:21, Gen. 24:63, Acts 3:1, 10:1-32, 1 Kings 18:41-46, Zech. 6:1, Rev. 6:1.
Time to Change / Shape History.
This was the time God changed history because this watch happens to be the time that Jesus gave up the ghost with a loud voice. When Jesus gave up the ghost, history was changed forever because He now cut a covenant for us with God and there was a triumphant Glory over hell, death and the grave and the Bible says at that hour darkness departed.
Pray Psalm 29. He said “Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani” meaning “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” This is because the Father turned His back on sin. We must pray the Churches in the earth realm will turn her back on sin; so that leadership in the family, government, church, economy, etc. will turn their back on sin.
Possess this gate of the day, just like in the other watches not only for yourself but also for your family, your village, your neighborhood, community, the city, the nation, the church, and God’s Kingdom.
