Thus Says The Lord: “Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them.”
( Isa 8:12)
Notice the words “they” and “them.”
As I flew back into Dallas I could feel the anxiety of this city regarding the breakout of Ebola. In fact the whole national conversation about “The Harbinger”, Blood Moons and that other book about 7 year cycles is counterproductive if done the wrong way.
I feel like some ministries are “milking” this subject. Look, the secular world isn’t listening to our talk shows and all we are doing is freaking each other out.
HERES WHAT I DO
Believers who are worried about national shaking need to separate themselves from anxiety about the judgement of God on America by simply judging themselves – “for if we judge ourselves we shall not be judged.” Its a good habit even when not in a national crisis.
If we all did that we might just change the entire situation because the promise of healing the land isn’t given to the unsaved anyway…
“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 I will forgive their sin and WILL HEAL THEIR LAND.” (2 Chron 7:14)
We are promised that if we humble ourselves God, in due season will lift us up! It will be really redemptive to the situation. Isaiah said: “When gross darkness covers the earth, Kings shall come to the brightness of YOUR rising.”
THE HOLY SPIRIT MAY BE LETTING YOU PICK UP ON WHAT’S ON OTHERS!
The anxiety you are FEELING may be coming from your spiritual sensitivity to what OTHERS are experiencing. It’s called “the burden of the Lord” and I’ve REALLY let slip the art of old time pentecostal prayer. An intercessor carries a “burden” for an issue. Its a real distress that won’t lift till they have prayed the matter through… then they have great peace. You take the anxiety or the issue to the Lord’s throne till you can park it there.
Then WATCH how you return from the throne with power. Your peace then can come upon others. Literally, you can impart peace with a quick prayer and touch of your hand.
This kind of prayer is called “Prevailing Prayer!” At its best its “travailing prayer.” I don’t think most people even know what I’m talking about because I myself have not walked in this for years. Its coming back now and it’s powerful.
If this prayer realm kicks into a lot of people these will be REVIVAL days with harvest and increase for those who are willing to watch, pray and be used as Ambassadors of the kingdom of Heaven.
Can I get a witness?
