People

I had some sad thoughts this morning. Even so, I am grateful for the remedy.

People.

They don’t listen. They don’t hear. Fear has closed their ears and their eyes to truth.

They are so weary of information, they don’t want to read anymore. So they don’t.

They are so weary of the process they are just going along with whatever comes.

Strength, a will to stand, has been beaten out of them, so they just don’t try anymore.
They just do as they are told.

So what do we do for them when they no longer hear nor see?

We pray.

It may even mean for a season we close our mouths for the trying to convince them and open our hearts and our voices to FATHER on their behalf.
Name them before Him.
Name what they will not hear and ask Holy Spirit to open their hearts to hear and see truth before it is too late.

Amen and amen.

Can you Enumerate?

I have not come here in this regard until now.
I have been praying for days for the people of Afghanistan, all the people including Americans in that terrifying place. 

What is happening is an eruption straight from the realm of Satan. It is beyond my vocabulary to describe.
Please ALL Disciples of JESUS will you pray without ceasing?

Afghanistan is not the only place – there is no place on this planet that does not need prayer.
Take your pick.
We cannot pray too much for the People of the World, Americans included. 

If people do not turn to GOD now in repentance, seeking Him for forgiveness and righteousness — when will they? 

Can you enumerate all the evils burning, churning, and falling on us right now?

Wars. Famines. Earthquakes. Floods. Droughts. 
The disease of all diseases and all the chaos associated with it  – the conflicts, the dissensions, the fear, the anxiety, the hatred, the bullying, the deaths.
Family turning against family. Neighbor against neighbor. Friend against friend.
The political arena – it is an abyss of corruption with not a flicker of repentance. 
World wide dominance looming larger and larger.
Shortages of food and what food there is the price continues to climb.
Freedom to live by your own conscience; to hold your own values — all of which are attacked if those values and conscience run contrary to the Flow.
And the cause of this:
JESUS CHRIST is the most hated Person in the entire world and if you align with Him, you are hated as well; more and more in these days and coming days.

Perhaps you can cite even more.
All this. Now. Right now. Not coming in waves but all of it now. Today. 

Is it enough? Is it enough to move the Saints to fervent prayer? 
Is it enough to bring the unrepentant sinners to their knees? 

We shall see. 
Pray People. Pray. 

2 Chronicles 7.

It would do us well to read the whole of it.
We are not the people of Israel but I believe the principles apply.

Now here are the familiar verses:

14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. source

A Need to Pray

The Mouths that Speak

Here just to share some thoughts with fellow saints of GOD.

It seems to me as best we are enabled by Holy Spirit we need to make NOT another decision based on the fear we are daily fed.
As best we are enabled by Holy Spirit, I pray we quickly learn to
ascertain the better places to go, and not to go;

what to do, what not to do,
what to say, what not to say,
what to buy, what not to buy,
what to read, what not to read,
what to watch, what not to watch,
what to allow ourselves to hear, and not to hear,
who to place confidence in, who to NOT place confidence in, 
based on what The Scripture and Holy Spirit within us instructs us. 

This does not mean we do not listen to counsel but it does mean that EVERY counsel that does not line up with that KNOWING in our GUT from Holy Spirit backed up by Holy Writ, we immediately reject and go in the opposite direction.
Let us carefully consider the character and the lifestyle of the mouth speaking to us. 

Based on what we have experienced, what we are experiencing, and what the Bible reveals, I suspect the evil one and those with skin on their faces he has deceived into doing his bidding are not going to stop until they have destroyed every last ounce of goodness, freedom, and human dignity on this planet. 
We might as well bend our knees to GOD alone, hold up our heads and go forth in wisdom to embrace every opportunity to live right in this wrong world, live well with what Father provides, love one another and share the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST until we open our eyes in Heaven.

10 “And now, O our God, what can we say after all of this? For once again we have abandoned your commands!
11 Your servants the prophets warned us when they said, ‘The land you are entering to possess is totally defiled by the detestable practices of the people living there. From one end to the other, the land is filled with corruption.
12 Don’t let your daughters marry their sons! Don’t take their daughters as wives for your sons. Don’t ever promote the peace and prosperity of those nations. If you follow these instructions, you will be strong and will enjoy the good things the land produces, and you will leave this prosperity to your children forever.’

13 “Now we are being punished because of our wickedness and our great guilt. But we have actually been punished far less than we deserve, for you, our God, have allowed some of us to survive as a remnant.
14 But even so, we are again breaking your commands and intermarrying with people who do these detestable things. Won’t your anger be enough to destroy us, so that even this little remnant no longer survives?
15 Lord, God of Israel, you are just. We come before you in our guilt as nothing but an escaped remnant, though in such a condition none of us can stand in your presence.”  source

Are you willing to Pray?

This is for/to people interested in praying for Australia.
I deem it an important enough issue that I am asking people to pray.
If you have a circle of praying brothers and sisters, I urge you all to pray.
If you are interested in the details and I hope you are, here’s a link with more information. And a second link.

And as you pray for Australia, pray Americans will likewise in some manner be so bold and courageous.

How Read Ye?

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ 

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.    Matthew 4    source 

 

The photo above comes from a screenshot I made with my phone this morning from an article I was reading. Unfortunately between my phone and my laptop, I lost the URL for the website.
BUT I did find another source.
Here’s the
LINK if you want to read The Washington Times.
Personally, I didn’t.
I was only looking for documentation of the statement in the pic above. 

P.S. Found it!! The URL. LINK.

Out Loud

Saints of GOD, we are not alone in this world.
Our LORD GOD is with us.
We are never forsaken by Him, assailants may arise, even family and friends at times grow cold and distant, but we are safe in the warm covering of the LOVE of our Father. 

Speak aloud your requests to Him today.
Pour out your woes to Him. He cares. 1 Peter 5:7
And He is able to make our feet like hinds feet. 
See Habakkuk 3: 16-19.

Here’s a start: 16 When I heard, my whole body trembled, my lips shook at the sound; weakness overcame my limbs, my legs gave way beneath me.
But I wait calmly for the day of trouble, when it comes upon our assailants.  source

This passage is Habakkuk having penned these words to Israel but as His Saints today, The Word of the Holy One of Israel is surely for us too when our souls are beaten, when we are afraid and heartbroken.
