WHAT are we doing…
For the past several days I have had a slight “weight” upon my heart for the nation and a burden for the Body of Christ in which I always carry with Jesus…WHO carries the brunt of it…I say “slight” because OF Christ Jesus Who said “come to ME and I will give you rest….come all you who are wearied and heavy laden…and HE gives rest! One cannot rest in the LORD when one is worried, fearful, complaining, murmuring or full of self –pity or self-interests!
When a person is worried or fearful they are full of anxiety and it reflects in the things that they say and how they act or things they do. It undermines the belief system of the Kingdom of God (which is Heaven), on earth. Same as when a person is complaining or murmuring out of discontent, lacking in grace that gives abundant life because their very thoughts, words and actions cut them off FROM the empowerment OF abundant life. When self –pity and/or self – interest is foremost in a person’s mind…there is the influence of rejection and/or pride, lack and/or greed…eventually one become “self-deceived” by it.
AND this ought not to be among the body of Christ who is meant to be LIGHT in the darkness.
Beloved you attract what you think and speak and when you are not thinking or speaking in Kingdom alignment, which IS Light, righteousness and Truth…then you are attracting darkness to you and those around you!
Fear, worry, self-pity and self-interests …ALL of these things attract darkness, gloom and doom OR anger, rage and unforgiveness! YES…this is truth beloved of the LORD!
What I have seen is that many “lines have been crossed” over a period of time to the extent that “gray areas” are acceptable IN many churches in America! THE BODY OF CHRIST has compromised itself…by compromising GOD’S principles of TRUTH!
LISTEN UP… I had a vision some years ago about America and it was regarding our current president and the past event of 911 and the vision was prior TO 911…the warning was this…many people ran to churches out of fear to “get right with God” and while that was good….there was NO repentance corporately speaking! OH there have been some groups in the U.S.A. who diligently pray for God to forgive this nation and hallelujah for them if not for THEM…it may be much worse beloved ones!!!
Here is the kicker….while all kinds of groups are gathering all over this nation to pray for the country and ask for forgiveness for their sins all of which IS necessary and good…how long will it last? How long WILL the Body of Christ walk in repentant loving hearts?
One of the major lines crossed in this nation is about love and kindness of God. The world culture has seeped into the churches along with “political correctness” and it is NOT OF GOD!
Love is NOT about sinning because of an emotional attachment one feels for the opposite sex and the heresy that has been taught in many places is oh…”its okay, you are covered by grace”! THAT IS HERESY and it is a LIE! YOU have been given GRACE to freely NOT NOT NOT SIN! It is not so that you can sin!!! Get out of bed with the person you are living with and not married to and repent and make it right …it is sin! Love is not tolerating sin in any form! NOR does “kindness” mean accepting political correctness!
Stop pastors and leaders smoothing it over and overlooking the ones living together in sin right in your congregations and you do not address it from the platform because you are in fear you might “loose them”! Or perhaps your “salary”! Listen up…it is TIME to say what IS and what is NOT! YOU CAN love them without compromising the WORD of GOD!
If you compromise and allow it…YOU are the ones GOD will hold accountable for not telling them the truth! YES, we are accountable as individuals but as teachers, preachers and ministry leaders WE are accountable to TELL THE TRUTH!
Lying or avoiding it…is NOT helping anyone, especially YOU!
Same sex attraction is SIN SIN SIN period and it IS an abomination to GOD! THEY WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN NOR ENTER IT!!!
WHAT? YES….you better read the WORD beloved it is there! GOD did NOT make some mistake when HE created each human…it wasn’t like …”oops….I meant to make Eve, into Steve, guess they will have to live with it”! HOW LUDICROUS to even think such a thought!
WE as the Body of Christ have allowed this whole mess of political correctness and demonic agenda to take over this nation! You cannot blame lost people, they are as lost as they can be…NO it is OUR fault and YES we need to own that and repent of it before GOD!
Another line crossed…lack of thankfulness!!! When Israel forgot all that GOD had done for them they began to be hardened in their hearts and forgot to be THANKFUL to Him by recounting HIS many blessings!
Listen, its not that God is some narcissistic Entity that needs our “praise and thanks” it is so that as HE is always good, we can keep our heads up because we are above not below otherwise, we become like the darkness in which we are to change by BEING Light! Praise and THANKS to God comes out of hearts that truly LOVE Him because there IS a reverent worshipful awe of WHO He is that just astounds the heart! And out of that eruption of love…praise and thanks comes! It makes room for HIM to bring more of HIS blessings and many good gifts into our hearts and lives!
I walked into a local store recently and was appalled …all I saw was tons of Halloween stuff and Christmas things. ONLY ONE small isle of Thanksgiving things…my heart sank.
I thought…even on television they are blowing up the horrible demonic even of Halloween and jumping from there straight to Christmas but forgetting…..HEAR ME…FORGETTING about THANKSGIVING!!!
WHY is this important? GOD GAVE US THIS BEAUTIFUL NATION FOR WHICH WE HAVE BEEN GREATLY BLESSED AND A WHOLE DAY HAS BEEN SET ASIDE TO GIVE HIM …YES…OUR ONE AND ONLY LIVING TRUE GOD YAHWEH …THANKS FOR LEADING OUR FOREFATHERS TO THIS LAND THAT WAS DEDICATED TO JESUS CHRIST!!!!!!! THAT IS the history beloved and guess what…..???
COMMON CORE (horrible stuff) has dumbed down the kids and most do NOT even know what country our country seceded from and when? They do NOT KNOW the authentic history of our country!
Text books have been altered and lies replaces the truth…WE HAVE ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN!
As one who worked years with children I saw SO many parents that were “too busy” to really see, or listen to their children. NOW we have a generation who is oh yes, tech savvy but dumbed down to reality of history and of JESUS CHRIST because parents have been too busy with their own work! OR caught up in all the “games” kids are involved in like football or soccer etc. WE have replaced GOD with all kinds of IDOLS!
IF this is NOT hitting home with you parents, preachers, leaders, teachers, grandparents then something is wrong!
We cannot simply run to a “meeting” to repent…we had better begin to LIVE A LIFESTYLE OF IT!
In that vision…the problem was…and I recall it quite well I said to the LORD in the vision/dream “there has not been real repentance yet…” and I KNEW that it would get darker…WELL beloved…IT MOST CERTAINLY DID!
Look at 911 and look at our nation TODAY!
I pray with all my heart that you “get this” and that we stop being in “fear of hurting someone’s feelings” if we speak truth! YES, do it IN love real love…..GOD’S love but don’t allow someone to go to hell just because you might “offend” them!!!
I can tell you most assuredly that the man who went to hell in the bible and cried out that someone tell his brothers not to do what he did that hell was real…that is what will happen to people who “play church” but do not really believe in their hearts WHO Jesus IS and HOLY SPIRIT IS in their life!
Those very people we fail to tell the truth too would say to you after they die and go to hell… “WHY didn’t you tell me??” I never knew…
IT is true! WHY didn’t we let our very lives show forth the LIGHT of the Kingdom of Heaven by our words, actions and beliefs! Why didn’t we live it out!!! Is THAT what you want to live with the next 40 years beloved?
Listen…if YOU do NOT get out and vote for the platform that STANDING for righteousness….YOU are guilty as though you voted for the dark platform! I am sorry if you don’t like hearing it but IT IS THE TRUTH!
Stop this crazy thinking “oh God is sovereign and He does what He wants” YES INDEED HE IS AND DOES…HOWEVER, you failed to recognize HE …gave US a “free will” to CHOOSE!!! HE is watching to see WHO is on board WITH HIM…and YOUR choice will be the telltale sign beloved!
Stop tolerating evil like Halloween in your family and churches…there is NOTHING “happy” about it!!! WHEN you allow that garbage in…YOU opened a door to death, destruction, fear, doubt and a ton of other things! Go on…don’t believe me but please don’t come running to me and other ministers when things go all haywire in your life because YOU chose to SIN against GOD! BELOVED…IT…IS…YOUR…CHOICE!!!
I strongly urge you this day to step back and ask Holy Spirit to search YOUR hearts individually as I have been doing for days as HE reveals things in ME to repent of and change in my attitude and behavior! YES…me and probably many other ministry leaders and pastors if they really HEAR what GOD is saying in THIS hour are doing it as well!
So, that said…let’s all get off our “blessed assurances” and STAND for CHRIST JESUS with clean hands and pure hearts before our loving, good Heavenly Father and cry out for HIS mercy and give THANKS for ALL HIS MANY GOOD BLESSINGS AND WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO DO IN OUR NATION TO REVEAL HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!!! WOO HOO….HALLELUJAH!!!! VICTORY IN JESUS!!!!!!
I leave you with this beloved and felt it IS how many of us are feeling and the response of our Heavenly Father… Shalom, blessings and love to each of you!
Psalm 31 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
“1 In You, O Lord, do I put my trust and seek refuge; let me never be put to shame or [have my hope in You] disappointed; deliver me in Your righteousness! 2 Bow down Your ear to me, deliver me speedily! Be my Rock of refuge, a strong Fortress to save me! 3 Yes, You are my Rock and my Fortress; therefore for Your name’s sake lead me and guide me. 4 Draw me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me, for You are my Strength and my Stronghold. 5 Into Your hands I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth and faithfulness. 6 [You and] I abhor those who pay regard to vain idols; but I trust in, rely on, and confidently lean on the Lord. 7 I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy and steadfast love, because You have seen my affliction, You have taken note of my life’s distresses, 8 And You have not given me into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a broad place. 9 Have mercy and be gracious unto me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; with grief my eye is weakened, also my inner self and my body. 10 For my life is spent with sorrow and my years with sighing; my strength has failed because of my iniquity, and even my bones have wasted away. 11 To all my enemies I have become a reproach, but especially to my neighbors, and a dread to my acquaintances, who flee from me on the street. 12 I am forgotten like a dead man, and out of mind; like a broken vessel am I. 13 For I have heard the slander of many; terror is on every side! While they schemed together against me, they plotted to take my life. 14 But I trusted in, relied on, and was confident in You, O Lord; I said, You are my God. 15 My times are in Your hands; deliver me from the hands of my foes and those who pursue me and persecute me. 16 Let Your face shine on Your servant; save me for Your mercy’s sake and in Your loving-kindness. 17 Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, or disappointed, for I am calling upon You; let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol (the place of the dead). 18 Let the lying lips be silenced, which speak insolently against the [consistently] righteous with pride and contempt. 19 Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men! 20 In the secret place of Your presence You hide them from the plots of men; You keep them secretly in Your pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the Lord! For He has shown me His marvelous loving favor when I was beset as in a besieged city. 22 As for me, I said in my haste and alarm, I am cut off from before Your eyes. But You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried to You for aid. 23 O love the Lord, all you His saints! The Lord preserves the faithful, and plentifully pays back him who deals haughtily. 24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for and hope for and expect the Lord!” From AMPC Bible
Remember beloved: “9 O fear the Lord, you His saints [revere and worship Him]! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship Him with godly fear.” AND “16 The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. 17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles. 18 The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.” Psalms 34:9,16-18 AMPC
GOD BLESS YOU and MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
