Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-23
I feel compelled today to encourage you to continue interceding for the President, the nation, the Church and leaders in the Church. Do not be discouraged nor be dismayed by what you see on television or on the internet that only gives a picture of doom and destruction. Remember I said in one of my earlier posts that the Lord said the natural is a reflection of the spirit, so if we wanted to know what God was doing in the Church, just look at what is happening in the White House because what is happening in the White House is a reflection of what is happening in the Church. The Church today is in many ways in the same state of turmoil as the White House is today. We have many in the Church that are in line with the will of God, but then there are others in the Church that are in line with the will and wisdom of man, which is of this world, which always leads to chaos. Always.
Pray without ceasing. Pray by the Spirit. Use discernment when choosing sources for news, especially when going to mainstream media sources. Look to reliable sources who personally know people in the know in government and in the church who are Spirit filled believers. They are out there and they are very vocal right now. Even then, still use discernment. Remember that we are not wrestling with flesh and blood. God is still for America, even with all her imperfections, flaws and past sins. America is still the greatest and most powerful nation on this planet that loves, supports and stands with Israel and the Jewish people. God will always reserve for Himself a company of intercessors to stand in the courts of heaven to decree the testimony of Jesus Christ concerning America and Israel. No question God is dealing with America...because He still loves America. That's why we must keep praying and endure to the end until we overcome in and through Him who has already overcome the world. It has already been written...bet. The Father's in the house. Remember, God desires for all come to repentance, from the White House, to the pulpits across America...we need to all repent and change the way we think. If we think we don't need to change the way we think just look at the state of the nation and the world. We all need a checkup from the neck up.
And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And
Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?”
So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?” Then the Commander of the LORD’s army said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy.
” And Joshua did so.
Basically, the Commander of the army of the Lord, Jesus, was saying this: I side with no one, but I have come to take over from here Joshua! I'm giving the orders now! Of course the Lord was for Israel then and is still for Israel today, but the Lord was making it very clear...He was there to fulfill the will of God and not the will of man.
There is nothing new under the sun, and since the earth remains, seedtime and harvest still remains. So another pattern is being played out again before our very eyes. It is a pattern that reveals another intervention from God must take place. People get ready.
I believe there is a takeover of the White House and the Church simultaneously taking place today. It may look like chaos, but it is nonetheless a takeover. I believe it is a spiritual military coup that is invading both the Oval Office and the Pulpits of the Cross. The commander of this invading army is none other than the Commander of the army of the Lord, Jesus Christ our Messiah Himself! He is not for us or our adversaries because He is no respecter of persons or political agendas, but as the Commander of the army of the Lord He is here to do only one thing, and that is to do the will of the One who sent Him and to establish His Kingdom, Dominion, Rule, Law and Order.
John 18:36 says, Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world." He was simply saying, My kingdom is not of this worldly arrangement or constitution, order or government... because it is a spiritual kingdom.
Revelation 11:15 says, Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
1 Corinthians 2:14-16 says, but the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Father, teach us to pray without ceasing from Your heavenly perspective, with the thoughts and intents of Your heart.
In Jesus name. Amen.
