This morning, July 29, 2015, upon reading a post on Facebook and after praying a brief prayer the Spirit of God spoke these words to me:
The calamity in the world today, (especially in the USA) is set to provoke the Saints of God to humble themselves and pray.
Prayer of Repentance
Now many would read this statement and think about going into prayer asking the Lord to come down, and save us from all these troubles and calamities, while also asking Hm to punish and bring judgment to America.
However, the prayer that needs to be prayed is a prayer of repentance. For we, the Saints of the Most High God are the most hypocritical liars, and self-righteous people in the world.
We condemn others for doing the very same things that we do, except ours have not been exposed yet. We condemn sinners for being sinners, while praising ourselves even while we are engaging in the same sin. Refusing to live a life sold out to Jesus Christ. Forgetting that Jesus was not sent into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him (see John 3:17).
Ignoring the fact that Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of which Paul said he was the chiefest sinner whom Jesus saved (see 1 Timothy 1:15). Being commanded by Jesus to go and sin no more, we His Saints continue in sin believing a lie of the enemy that says: “we are sinners saved by grace.” Never pressing on to live a life free of sin, but revel in our hypocrisy and sin willfully, expecting Jesus to make us instantly righteous at His appearing.
However Jesus himself said: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” ~Revelations 22:11-12~
Jesus will not be making anyone righteous, who is not righteous when He appears to bring forth judgment upon those who are fearful, disobedient, and unthankful among us. Jesus requires holiness: for there shall in no wise enter into it (the holy city) any thing that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie, but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life (see Revelations 21:27).
Therefore, the prayer of the Saint who humbles himself is a prayer first of repentance. There are also other prayers the Saint should pray which follows:
Prayer of Wisdom
This hour is the greatest hour of the Body of Christ. The time in which the true Saints of God should stand and demonstrate the power and authority of Jesus Christ to a dying world.
However, we need strategies, direction, and instructions from on High in order to heal the world we live in. Anger, threats and death met with anger, threats and death only leads to more anger, threats, and death.
We need wisdom in leadership, I myself refuse to follow a leader whose only premise is to meet death with death. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the devil gaining free souls for hell, and if you think this war against civilian americans (mostly Black Americans), or the world is anything less than a war for souls, then you are blind and walk as men.
Everything that is happening in this world today, which you could say is evil has been orchestrated by demon spirits. Men and women in the person of cops, robbers, mothers, fathers, brother, sisters, sons and daughters, as well as governments carry out these evil plans of demons, and pierce themselves through with many sorrows.
The sad thing is, many of these people are persons who say they are Christians. Thus making the representation of Christ void. However, God does not have christians, He has Saints and sons. The Apostles were first called christians in Antioch, not by Jesus, but by the people of Antioch. Making the term christian, a man made representation of Christ, and because it is man made it is subject to be revised by man, so that the requirement to be a christian is self motivated rather than God inspired: but I digress.
What is needed in this time of destress and anguish is not more rhetoric, but a divine strategy, which can only come from the Father and Jesus Christ.
Prayer for Tenacious Leaders
We, the Saints of God need to humble ourselves and pray for courageous, and tenacious leaders who will stand to oppose the enemy at every turn. Leaders in the Body of Christ who are not afraid of war, not afraid to get dirty, not afraid of losing everything they have for the cause of Christ.
Make no doubt about it, the Saints are at war, and the first rule of engagement in war is to know your enemy.
Therefore, we need leaders to be engaged in the realm of the spirit in order to gain intel from the enemies camp. We need to know what he is planing, where will his next attack come from. Unfortunately, many of our leaders today are on the devil’s payroll, and minister words of excitement instead of words of empowerment, enlightenment, and understanding.
We need leaders who will empower the Saints of God, not leave them bound, wounded, sick and diseased. We need leaders who will speak the truth, stand on the truth, and not take down for popularity, or financial stability. Nor compromise the truth for fear of being arrested because of the truth they hold, or fear dying for upholding the truth they carry.
We need leaders after God’s own heart, who walk after the example set by Jesus Christ. Unabated and unstoppable in their faith. Leaders who do not bound God’s Saints to themselves, but give them freedom to chase after God in truth and liberty.
We need leaders who will feed God’s flock with knowledge and understanding. If there remains anyone under your leadership, who is unable to war against demon spirit, then that is a rebuke to every leader. However, if a person under leadership refuses to take heed to the lessons given, then their blood be upon their own head.
Let the love of God dwell in you richly, but make no provisions for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof (see Romans 13-14).
Prayer To Receive Power and Authority
Every Saint or Son of God has received power and authority through Jesus Christ, against all the works of the enemy (devil). However, because many don’t believe or don’t know about this power and authority, they suffer much affliction from the enemy not understanding that he has no power over them as Children of God.
God stated: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (see Hosea 4:6).” Which is the main reason many of the Saints are sick, weak, diseased, and are caught in divers sins. We simply don’t know who we are, and what Jesus has given us to live in this present world. Therefore, we endure things which does not need to be endured, because we don’t know the power or authority we possess as Children of God.
Ignorance is no excuse not to pick up your Bible and learn the truth of the Gift God that He has given through His Son Jesus Christ.
If your leader is not teaching you about your power and authority against demons spirits, then you are in the wrong congregation. If all he or she is teaching you is God will bring you out, or God is making a way, then he or she is missing the purpose of the Father sending His son to die for us.
Jesus didn’t die to only redeem us from sin, but to also give us power to combat sin, while also giving us authority over the works of the devil. All power has been given to Jesus in Heaven and in earth, therefore, satan has no power over a Child of God. The Child of God has power with Jesus and thereby over satan and his demons.
The Saints of God must seek this power and authority through faith, which works by love. Then they must use this power against their enemy which is the devil and all those being used by him.
Things To Remember
The Body of Christ is in a war for souls. Not for position, status, or recognition in this world. The Lord has called us, His Saints out of the world, therefore, we are the enemy of the world, and the world is hostile against us. We are called to live of the truth, bear witness to the truth, and stand upon the truth.
The truth will always win out against any lie.
There is no war against your finances, your possessions, or your praise and worship. For the devil must also worship the Lord God. Your soul is the prize here, and the devil will do anything, offer anything, give you anything to win your soul. Then watch as you are cast into hell for receiving the things he offered you.
The Church of Jesus Christ is at war. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray to the Lord that He will send true laborers into His vineyard (world) that He may reap the harvest of Souls predestined to this dispensation and salvation.
Remember that calamity comes to provoke the Church. Not the brick and mortar you call the church, but the flesh and blood temple filled with the Holy Ghost and power. Be provoked, be prepared, be ready, and put on the whole armor of God. For the war cry has gone forth and the devil has set the battle against us. Lets not stand back, or be pushed back any longer. It’s time for the church to advance the enemy and overtake him by force.
