Test the Spirits – Love Truth!

Test the Spirits!

1 John 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The problem with true prophetic ministry has always been deception. It’s the only weapon satan has left, for he has been stripped of all power and authority when Jesus rose from the dead.

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

test angel of llight

Ga 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Satan may be a liar and the father of all lies, and deception may be his only weapon, but he uses this weapon very well in the earth, even today. Just as there are true prophetic ministry and spiritual oversight, there are demonic spirits that emulate the gifts of God, with the sole intent, of causing ministries and the people of God to go astray.

De 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

Jesus warned us about false prophets:Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Why? https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/ravenous-wolves/)

Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect

2 Corinthians 11:13
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

John 10:12
But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

2 Peter 2 [Full Chapter]
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

From the time in the garden, satan knew that if he could just get the people of God to disobey God, he would have them in his power, for how well he knows the holiness and raw power of God!
demons trembleJas 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

He knows he has no power against God, and that we do have power with God, and authority from Him. He hasn’t changed, he still whispers, ‘has God really said?’, to attempt to get us off of the Word of God, to deviate from the authority of the Scriptures. In a large sense, he has been successful.

Mohammad went up into a cave to seek God. Supposedly, an angel claiming to Gabriel appeared to him, and put him in a spiritual stupor, after clasping him, and imparting to him, ‘the oracle of God’ which Mohammad then had written, and which is now known as the Quran. Islam now claims to have a billion followers in the earth, far from Jesus, living a life of fear, violence, hatred and strife, all because one man of God, listened to another voice, heard another spirit, that pretended to be of God.

Remember, demons lie, then deceive. Jesus said ‘by their fruits, you will know them.’ And the fruit of Islam has been a blood bath for centuries.

So it is with Mormonism. A strong leader named Joseph Smith, attempting to honestly lead his people into the promised land, had a vision where Jesus and Mary supposedly appeared to him and gave him ‘a complete revelation of the Bible’, and the book of Mormon was written. Though Mormonism is not as bloody as Islam, Walter Martin in his book, ‘The Kingdom of the cults’ cites 84 key differences between Mormon doctrine and the Bible, and so you end up with a moral people, devoid of spiritual power, anointing, and living truth brought alive from the presence and power of Holy Spirit.

2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

test realize

Since these two deceptions were the crux of the 2012 US Presidential election, I mentioned them as examples, but I greatly encourage you to get a copy of Walter martin’s book, Kingdom of the Cults, (http://www.amazon.com/Kingdom-Cults-Walter-Martin/dp/0764228218/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1415565001&sr=1-1&keywords=walter+martin+kingdom+of+the+cults)  to protect yourself from error.

Dig deep into the Word of God to discover what you believe, based upon the Bible:

John 8:31-32 (AKJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Jer 14: 14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this
land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury
them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

In this verse, we have prophets that should have been speaking by the Holy Spirit, the revelations of God, yet they were hearing and seeing by another spirit, a spirit of divination, and they became deceived in their hearts.

This sends chills down my spine, in the fear of the Lord, for I seek holiness, the fear of the Lord, and truth above every other thing. None of us are immune to error, and as we studied church history in the lives of some of the most powerful servants of God, we see some that went off. William Branham denying the Trinity, and perhaps moving in a mix of true prophetic, and divination or familiar spirits,

John Alexander Dowie, claiming to be ‘a reincarnation of John the Baptist’ in his latter years, and on it goes. What about many today who ‘prophesy’ money out of people’s pockets, in the name of the Lord? Surely there are true prophets that move in the financial realm, but how many times have we heard an offering taken up, that just doesn’t sit right in our heart?

Act 16:16 ¶ And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
divination

We must listen to our hearts and test the spirits. If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t right.

1 John 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should
come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Just finished a great little book, given to us by Billye Brim, called The Authority of the Believer, by John A. Macmillan. It is a great book on spiritual authority and warfare, but the last couple of chapters talk about many cases of demonic interaction with people. One chapter talks about the rise of modern day spiritualism stems from actual communication with spirits claiming to be the souls of loved ones who had died some years previously. As these spirits communicated through tapping, and other methods, the group of adherents to this mess, went from two teenaged girls, to over 10 million.

Just because an experience is supernatural, does not mean it is of God!

Remember Moses, when he appeared before Pharaoh and God turned his staff into a serpent? The Egyptian priests did the same thing by demonic power.

Please stay grounded in truth, as you move in the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit. I have to believe that as I stay rooted and grounded in the Word of God, that God Himself will send both laborers and teaching materials about demonic errors to keep us clean spiritually.

Like any Bible doctrine, there is a ditch on either side.

With this teaching, the two ditches are demonic deception resulting in supernatural revelation coming from demons instead of God, and then on the other side, strict legalism, resulting in no tolerance, or allowance of prophetic ministry and guidance to the church of the living God.

There is a straight and narrow way through these perils!

The cure for misuse of a gift is not “no use”, rather, “correct use”.

1Co 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

1Co 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

These are the last days, the season when the anti-Christ spirit will manifest in a man. He is described here in

2 Thess 2:This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. 10 He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.

truth love

If we determine to love truth and embrace it, we will be protected from sinister ministers, and snakes in pulpits, wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Let’s pray:

‘Father, I take my place in your kingdom, determined to walk in truth. Open my eyes to the true state of the ministries you have called me to, and give me wisdom on how best to pray, preach, feed, and lead your people, to best grow them up in you, and your perfect plan for us, and deliver me and protect me any others from all false prophetic, dreams, visions, or manifestation. Keep me in truth, at all cost, and prevent me from going astray. In any case that I have heard or seen things in the spirit, that are not from you, but are demonic deception, please show me, cleanse me, and keep me pure and holy in your sight, and submitted to your Word, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Hearing the Voice of God

Hearing the Voice of God

You haven’t lived, until you have fully committed to live by the voice of the living God!

While at church some time ago, at Victory.com, Pastor Sharon spoke on ‘Hearing the Voice of God’. It was excellent, and Holy Spirit did speak to me several critical things I needed to hear. He will speak to you too. Last year, I wrote up the basics of this teaching, and felt impressed, to edit, add, and repost it for you, fully trusting that God will again speak clearly to you about your life and future.

Matt 4 :4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

bread
So many can quote this verse, but if you ask them when the last time they authentically, positively heard the voice of God Almighty in their lives, they cannot be sure.

They have a mixture of Scripture, tradition, emotions, and their own interpretations of all of that, that they can tell you about for hours, but very, very few can honestly say: “God said to me…” and then quote the clear mandate of God for their lives, with absolute accuracy.

How well I have struggled in this!

Gone to God in fervent prayer, and heard Him speak something profound, then did one of several things with what He said:
1. Ran out and tried to obey what He said, with zeal and passion, without asking Him about the mechanics of His instruction, things like: When? How? With who? Where is the provision for it?
2. Applied my own interpretation to what He said. A perfect example of this was the time He clearly spoke to me to go to Rwanda and preach. Next day, Victory announced that they were doing a missions trip to Rwanda, so in faith, I signed up, and sent out support letters, and guess what? Needed $3500, and only $2000 came in for the trip. Missed the deadline, and it looked like I had missed God. Still remember the day of the deadline when the trip organizer called and asked me if I had the money for the trip. When I said ‘no’, he announced, well, ‘I guess you are off the trip then’. I was emotionally devastated, and went to the Lord in anguished prayer, getting what seemed like no answers. Then the businessman in me kicked in a couple of days, and I call the organizer back and asked, ‘Hey! What about the $2000.00 I gave you?” He replied that since it was a dedicated offering for that trip, I had three choices:
1. I could sow it to the ministry to help with crusade expenses.
2. I could donate it to another team member who was already going.
3. I could apply it to another missions trip at another date.
I prayed about it, and felt impressed to give it to a couple on the team who were not just going on the trip, but who were staying for the entire year.
I felt impressed to pray for this couple daily, and we became friends on Facebook. About a year later, I was doing a remodel on a client’s house, and they received a significant savings on some materials we purchased, on a project I was managing for them. The client, a man of God, when he found out about the $12,000 savings said: ‘I need to find a missionary, going someplace!” As God would have it, that morning, I had received a Facebook message from the Rwandan missionary, inviting me to come to Rwanda, and speak in one of the two Victory Bible schools there. So I said to the client: ‘Well, I was just invited to go preach in Rwanda, this morning’, and the conversation went like this: ‘Wasn’t that the country that had genocide, where all those people got killed with machetes?’ “Yes,” I replied,” You gonna go?” “By faith,” I answered, “Good answer, ever been to Africa before?” “Nope”. “What does your wife think about all of that?”” Oh, I’m sure she would be thrilled”,I replied,( spoken sarcastically.) Suddenly, the client stopped, and looked at me with deep wisdom and understanding, and said: ‘I think that will be a good experience for you, tell you what, you fly, I’ll buy!”

travel

And it got done. Raised $6000 in about a week, the client paid the air fare, and off I went for 2-1/2 weeks to Rwanda, speaking 2-5 times a day. Got to bless Rwanda, and God richly blessed me, and turned loose the fire of God in my life, that has never stopped or become quenched since that trip.
So you see, I had authentically heard the voice of God, but I interpreted His timing and application of what He said, my way, not His.

I heard a minister say, in pastoring a congregation filled with prophetic people, all at various levels of personal growth in their character that errors in hearing the voice of God usually are not from incorrectly hearing what God said (people generally, actually hear, clearly), but are generally in the areas of interpretation, and application.

3. The third problem in hearing the voice of God, is when we have heard another voice, and made a mess of things. These other voices only come from two other places, human or demonic. I deliberately left out angels, because although they speak to people too, they only speak the Word of God; hearing from an angel, with an authentic message from God, is equivalent to hearing directly from God.

obey hear voice
Let’s look briefly at the other two sources of voices:

Human
a. 1Co 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
Pr 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
It is good to hear from godly counsel, but no matter how great the counsel of men is, the counsel of God is always greater. It is always better to obey God than men. Much has been said regarding hearing direction from God through the voices of people, but wisdom is this:
Generally, if someone speaks to you by the Spirit of God, it should be something that God has already spoken to you, confirming what you are to do. There is much written about this, but it comes down to this: Hear from God, present it to people, and listen to their response, but before you pursue any serious decision, take the counsel of people to the Lord, to hear ultimately what He says!

voice today
Heard a preacher say: Every godly relationship is only destroyed by a third voice.
Joseph authentically heard God, but telling his brothers got him thrown down a well, almost killed, and then sold into slavery.

We need to know who we can share things with, and when and where it is appropriate.
So many times, God speaks, and then other people give their opinions, or interpretations about what they think you ought to do. Probably, what God has told you to do, involves other people, (and if it is a God sized mandate, it is huge, and will involve other leaders). We may be called to work with other leaders, but sometimes, the other leaders or people authentically called to walk with us in our mandate, meet the carnal nature of ungodly counsel.

Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Sure the devil is the accuser of the brethren, but people too, can have carnal natures. The ABC’s of satan, are accusation, blame, and criticism, but he can also work through slander and insinuation, to deliberately discredit you, in the eyes of people called to your vision.
Presently, I am watching several, potentially wonderful relationships being destroyed, through the venom, and toxic slander of certain people against us, that have swayed some people of God, over into offense, bitterness, and hardness of heart.

Slithering serpantlike behavior, designed to assassinate the character of people, that are threats to the status quo. Ugly, yea, even among Christians…

gossip slither
We, as people of God, need to consider the source and motive of all counsel, even that which appears godly, with the Word of God, and the voice of Holy Spirit to our own hearts.

I have greatly erred in this in the past years, in sharing inappropriately, secrets from God, with the wrong people. Caused me an incredible amount of personal pain, and brought trouble to the church and ministry that I love with all of my heart, in fact, am willing to spend the rest of my life serving. Surely God is merciful, but I pray I become more like Mary, with deeper truths shown to me:

Luke 2:19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Hindsight is said to be 20/20, and I have hurt some people that I love deeply, by inappropriately sharing some of the things God showed me, with the wrong people. Love covers a multitude of sins, and I have asked God to forgive me, now, I pray that the people I have hurt will forgive me also. Human hearts are precious things, easily broken….

broken hearted

Yes, I am a bold preacher, but in intimate close relationships, I want to be like Jesus and God our Father.

David could talk to God about anything, and he said:
2 Samuel 22:36
“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your gentleness has made me great.

I hope, in my zeal, passion, and pain, that I have not destroyed some of the very things that I am called to build…

Then there is the Demonic:

test deception

Demonic deception is dangerous, insidious, and much to be guarded against by:
Confronting any voices you are hearing in the spirit, by the Scriptural test:
1Jo 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
If a spirit is speaking to you, that sounds like the Holy Spirit, command it to say: ‘Jesus Christ has come in the flesh!”
I have heard demons say: ‘Jesus is God’ or ‘Jesus is the Son of the most High God’ with great emphasis and drama, but they cannot confess that ‘Jesus Christ has come in the flesh’, only Holy Spirit or one of God’s holy angels can say those words, according to the Word of God.

YOU MUST DO THIS TO WALK WITH GOD!

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

The earth is full of messed up Christians, denominations, cults, and divisive doctrines who all claim to have heard God, yet the fruit of their revelation is evil, and a mess!

Jesus said that Matt 7: 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

narrow3
15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Be a fruit inspector, if a persons life and teaching do not line up with the fruit of the Holy Spirit described in Gal 5:22, then refuse to listen to, or follow them. For leaders, read 1 Tim 3:1-7, as a character qualification in their lives. If that is not in place, do not submit to them.
I remember Kenneth E Hagin instructing us regarding spiritual warfare, and our authority over the devil.
‘Do not try to fight the devil in the realm of reason, the mental realm. He has been deceiving people for thousands of years. If you fight him there, you can lose. If you hold him in the arena of faith though, you win every time!.’

world
1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

Many great books are written on being led by the Spirit and Word of God, keep reading them, and above all, stay in the Word of God, and 2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Hear God, confirm what you are hearing in the Scripture, and then seek Him for wisdom how best to accomplish that what He told you do. Hear godly counsel, then take to prayer and the Word, their advice. Then in passion, zeal, and fire, step out and obey, expecting signs, wonders, and miracles to make a way for you to do that which He has authentically commissioned you to do. Refuse to yield to paralysis by analysis, and GO!

Heal our Land!

Heal our Landlionlamb7alionofjudahHeal our Land!

Heal our Land!

Read Ezekiel 34, true and false Shepherds
Creation is affected by Godly leadership.
Ever see the children’s movie, ‘The Lion King?’ There are many spiritual allegories there, but the one I wish to bring out presently, is how the land mourns, and is in famine, under Scar, the wicked, usurping unappointed king, come to the throne through treachery and deceit.
Ezekial 34:24b (The Voice)
I, the Eternal One, have spoken.
25 I will establish a covenant of peace with them and drive away all the dangerous wild animals from the land. Then they will be able to live safely in the wilderness and sleep soundly in the forests. 26 I will make them and the area around My holy hill a blessing. At My direction, there will be plenty of rainfall when it is needed. There will be showers of blessing! 27 The trees of the fields and orchards will bear abundant fruit, the soil of the fields will produce ample crops, and My people will rest securely within their land. They will know that I am the Eternal when I destroy the dominion of their oppressors and liberate them from those who made them slaves. 28 Foreign powers won’t ravage them anymore, and wild beasts will no longer feast on their flesh. They’ll be safe and free and fearless. 29 I will make their land famous for its beauty and productivity. Never again will famine strike their land. Never again will other nations sneer at them. 30 They will know that I, the Eternal One their God, am on their side and that they, the people of Israel, are My people.
After God declares His opposition to the shepherd-rulers who neglected and exploited their human flock, God pledges to get involved personally. He will search for the lost sheep, return the strays, and care for them tenderly back in the beautiful land of Israel, the land of promise.
But in God’s human flock are trouble and competition. Even as God lovingly supplies His flock with plenty of good food, clear water, and pleasant pastures, some trample what they can’t control and foul what they can’t consume. Some bully and push their weight around, while others move aside or run for the hills. Again God sees the problem and promises to step in, personally, to rescue His hassled people and put an end to injustice. So God promises to send another shepherd-ruler, in the spirit of King David, who will love and care for the flock as God Himself does. This Davidic shepherd will be unlike the wicked, neglectful shepherd-rulers in Israel’s past; this son of David will rule as their prince in submission to Israel’s one True God.
But there is more. In the final movement of this oracle, God announces a new covenant—a covenant of peace. Its scope is beyond human community and politics. It is a renewal of life in the land of Israel and, by extension, in the rest of creation.
In Romans chapter 1, we read:
18 For the wrath of God is breaking through from heaven, opposing all manifestations of ungodliness and wickedness by the people who do wrong to keep God’s truth in check. 19 These people are not ignorant about what can be known of God, because He has shown it to them with great clarity. 20 From the beginning, creation in its magnificence enlightens us to His nature. Creation itself makes His undying power and divine identity clear, even though they are invisible; and it voids the excuses and ignorant claims of these people 21 because, despite the fact that they knew the one true God, they have failed to show the love, honor, and appreciation due to the One who created them!
God is revealed in creation, and we see from the preceding passage, Creation is designed to be stewarded by loving, kind, and wise shepherds, who know and walk with God, in truth and holiness.
Of course, this has never changed, for God has never changed.
We have lived like the good lions under the leadership of Scar, suffering as his leadership destroys everything it touches.
We, each of us, are the Simba’s of the story. Called to rise up, and fight our own particular fight of faith in this generation, taking our place as kings and lords in His domain, subject to the King of all kings, and Lord of all Lords, the true lion of the tribe of Judah, King Jesus!
Yet, there is a righteous roar that must come from the heart of the church, as we groan in agony with creation under the weight of sin and wickedness in the earth.
Romans 8:19-26
New Living Translation (NLT)
19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. 20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. 22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children,[a] including the new bodies he has promised us. 24 We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope[b] for it. 25 But if we look forward to something we don’t yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently.)
26 And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words
Groan, travail, then arise in the power of God and ROAR!
There must be a shout of violent faith in the earth!
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, Heal our Land! Raise up shepherds, leaders, after Your own heart, with wisdom, gentleness, and sacrificial love to provide direction to this wayward generation, that you might quench the groans of creation, in the glory revealed in our unveiling. May you break our hearts in deep travail, groaning, and mourning, until we meet You Lord Jesus, the true Lion King! Let us arise, in passion, zeal, with the shout of a king amongst us, in violent faith, to turn the tide of filth, defilement, curses, and wickedness, overthrowing those foul spirits who have usurped Your authority, through the sin of man. May there be a deep move of Your Spirit, convicting of sin, and bringing forth fruit in keeping with repentance and the holiness You and Your Kingdom represent. We cry out, yet again, for Your mercy, Your presence, Your power displayed Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Birthing the call…

The deeper place of prayer…

Is 66:7  Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

8  Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

9  Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.

Ro 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Seems I find myself weeping, groaning, deeply moved by the Holy Spirit in prayer…

Not sure if it is the birthing of my particular calling or intercession for the United States right now, but it sure is wrecking me in His presence…
