Get yourself ready!

“I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.” Psalm 62:1-2 (NLT)

This past Monday night was the Winter solstice, the longest night of the year! In the natural, we are now going from dark to increased light. Just as in the physical our days will have more light, so will spiritual light begin to increase! It’s not that we’ve arrived, or that God is done. In fact, there are many battles ahead of us, but the current has shifted! The Christmas Star was a sign of a new era! Things have shifted.

Please do not be afraid to take time off from the wall of intercession over December 24-31, 2020. Remember, even Jesus took a nap on a pillow in the midst of a life-threatening storm. It has been an intense year to say the least! Nevertheless, God’s got it. Take time to REST, but stay alert and on call. Over this last week of the year please reflect upon and commit yourself completely to “Yeshua” – the Hebrew word for Jesus and means “to rescue, to save, or to deliver.” Take a break from your intense intercession, refresh yourself and get ready for 2021. You are not carrying this alone! Spend time simply worshipping the Lord, soaking in His presence and surrendering yourself to Him. If He needs you, He will call you!

Intercessor, remember that no matter what, Jesus is Yeshua, our Savior! The battle belongs to Him!!! And yes, 2021 will be unpredictable and uncertain, and we need to be ready to expect the unexpected. A great awakening is upon us! It will be like nothing we have ever experienced! Get yourself ready for it!

“Quiet your heart in His presence and pray; keep hope alive as you long for God to come through for you. And don’t think for a moment that the wicked in their prosperity are better off than you.” Psalm 37:7 (TPT)

BTW, we will continue to post things here every day! Use it however the Holy Spirit would lead you!!!

CCP is now hunting down pastors!

They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Revelation 12:11 (NIV)

“Tens of thousands of house church pastors and evangelists across China have gone into hiding as the Communist Party prepares for what seems like a ‘final assault’ on Christianity in an attempt to eradicate it from the country, according to missions group Asia Harvest.” This was the opening paragraph about what the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is currently doing.

Undoubtedly, this is what they (and the left) would like to do here as well. Please be praying for our brothers and sisters in China, that God would protect them and strengthen their faith in such perilous times. Ask God to use this to bring the CCP down to its knees in surrender to Jesus Christ, to make His name and fame known across China. Pray that every agenda to do it here would be brought into the light and removed as a threat in our nation!

Present your case!

“Yahweh says, ‘Present your case.’
‘Let’s hear your arguments,’ says the King of Jacob’s tribes.
” Isaiah 41:21 (TPT)

Contrary to what the media and the Left, even many Republicans are saying about there being no election or voter fraud on November 3, there is mounting, we’re talking a massive amount of evidence, to the contrary. The reality is, the evidence has not been considered in the courts. So many are trying to suppress the truth. Check out this article for more details… https://www.theepochtimes.com/2020-election-screaming-red…

Please pray that legal teams would have wisdom and courage on how to present their massive amounts of evidence to the proper authorities. Pray that both state and federal judges would rise up and not be afraid or biased, and render a just verdict based on the evidence. Declare that every door that has been and currently is locked and blocking the moving forward, to be opened. Plead for angelic warriors to fight on behalf of our nation’s future. And while you’re at it, please present your case, all this evidence, before the One who sits on the Throne in the council of the gods!!!

Plumb line of God’s Word!

“As the snow and rain that fall from heaven do not return until they have accomplished their purpose, soaking the earth and causing it to sprout with new life, providing seed to sow and bread to eat. So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to Me unfulfilled. My word performs My purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.” Isaiah 55:10-11 (TPT)

God is stirring His people to reestablish the authority of His Word. With a huge percentage of “Christians” denying the authority of the word of God, it’s no wonder that so many people are confused. The Bible is not something we can cut and paste. It is not something that we can take what we like or what fits our preferences, and ignore the rest. We must take ALL of the word of God! God is raising up a plumb line!!! This is a “cord with a lead bob attached to one end used to determine perpendicularity.” A plumb line allows builders to erect walls that are true, straight and vertical. Without this alignment, buildings would not stand the test of wind and storms or endure over time!

“I saw the Lord standing beside a wall that had been built using a plumb line. He was using a plumb line to see if it was still straight.” Amos 7:7 (NLT)

I recently heard that same word used in Isaiah 55 is used in Genesis 1 when God spoke and created. God’s word goes forth and creates! It does not return void. God did not speak to no avail. He didn’t have to speak twice. He spoke and the hovering Holy Spirit immediately responded… CREATION! The Holy Spirit is just waiting for God’s word to be spoken!!!

“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)

When the word is preached (or taught), it does not return void, meaning it has power to accomplish what God intended for it to accomplish… to create! The word brings alignment with God and this earth. Because it is God’s breathed word, it teaches us what is true and brings correction in our lives. It is our source to live by! We don’t always see the results immediately, but like a seed planted it will come forth in its due time. Do not fret or despise when you don’t see the harvest immediately. In the natural it often takes years for a tree to bear bountiful fruit. The word of God goes into our hearts, and ultimately brings forth a harvest of life if we surrender to it.

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)

God loves to see His word lifted up and used as our standard for life! Please pray that God would reestablish the plumb line of His word in our city. As pastors look at their preaching calendar for 2021, be asking God to stir them to go deep, both establishing the Bible as our authoritative source of life and then preaching it (not just nice topics). Pray that pastors and churches will have courage to preach the full word, and not just what makes people happy, or comfortable, but what brings freedom from sin, through the cross and Christ’s blood and always points to Jesus. Pray for an increased anointing from the pulpits across our city! Pray for congregations in Athens to be ready to eat the meat from the word of God that is being prepared for them this coming year.

A new era!

“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.” Psalm 19:1 (NLT)

Four hundred years ago today, December 21, 1620, the Mayflower, led by William Bradford landed on Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts. This was the first English Pilgrims to arrive in America. The Mayflower carried 102 passengers plus crew. The Pilgrims founded the Plymouth Colony, along with Jamestown, Virginia.

The Plymouth Colony plays a huge symbolic/prophetic role in American history. Though the settlers in Jamestown were entrepreneurs, the Plymouth citizens were fleeing religious persecution and searching for a place where they could worship God freely. They chose to settle in America. You get that? They came here worship! America became known as ‘The Land of the Free,’ a place where people were free to follow their dreams and their God.

400 years was the amount of time the Hebrews were in captivity before God rose up Moses to lead them into freedom, the promised land, and a new era!

400 years, the amount of time of God’s silence known as the intertestamental period, between what we now call the New and Old Testaments. The Old ended with Malachi’s prophetic word about spirit of Elijah returning to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children and the children to their fathers (Malachi 4:5-6). The silence was broken with John the Baptist. Many believe we are now not just stepping into a new year, but a new era!

Not only is today the 400 year anniversary of the Mayflower landing, it is also the date of “the great conjunction!” Tonight Saturn and Jupiter will line up and reveal what has been called “the Christmas Star.” These two planets should appear as a bright point of light easily visible in the night sky. Over the past few weeks, these two planets have slowly been moving closer to each other. “A conjunction occurs when planets appear incredibly close to one another in the sky because they line up with Earth in their respective orbits.” (https://www.space.com/great-conjunction-jupiter-saturn…).

Even though Jupiter and Saturn’s orbits bring them into alignment about every 20 years, this is the first time since 1623 that they have passed this close to one another, though it wasn’t visible at that time because of its location in the night sky. The last time it was visible was nearly 800 years ago in 1226. It just so happens to be tonight, on the winter solstice, the longest night of the year! This is truly a rare occasion because it will be visible for people to see the solar system. This has also been called the Star of Bethlehem because of it falling so close to Christmas.

In light of the crazy, perilous and uncertain times we have lived through this year, the Christmas Star and the Mayflower are signs of God’s glory and plans. God, who created the heavens and earth as a display of His glory is shouting at us to remember that He is the One we are to trust and worship. Are these aligning planets, a declaration of a new era, as when Christ came the first time? The Pilgrims came to the New World so that they could worship freely. That freedom is in the balance. We truly are on the verge of a new era! Please take time today to worship the One who holds the worlds in His hands, the One who displays His glory through all that He created. He is the One who is never late, nor is He finished with His purposes for our nation! In prayer, agree, decree and declare that His will be done and His kingdom to come, TODAY, in our nation and across the globe!

Some things God detests…

There are six evils God truly hates
and a seventh that is an abomination to Him:
Putting others down while considering yourself superior,
spreading lies and rumors,
spilling the blood of the innocent,
plotting evil in your heart toward another,
gloating over doing what’s plainly wrong,
spouting lies in false testimony,
and stirring up strife between friends.
These are entirely despicable to God!

Proverbs 6:16-19 (TPT)

Please cry out for mercy over those who are fighting against God in our nation! From pride, to lying, fraud, corruption, treason, to the aggressive slaughter of pure innocent children in the womb, and more! Habakkuk 3:2 reminds us to plead for mercy when wrath is due! Pray for those who are standing against these wicked, god rejecting people, that they would have wisdom, courage, truth, peace… and would be innocent as doves though shrewd as serpents. Pray that senators and congress and other GA state legislators would have courage to fight for our nation and not give in to the dark tide! And pray for the church to love each other and prepare for the greatest awakening this world has ever seen!

Remember God is not late nor is He finished! Please keep praying till He is!!! Thanks!

It’s not left or right!

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.” 2 Timothy 4:7 (NLT)

So many people think today’s struggle is against left and right, or democrat and republican, or even Biden and Trump. NO! The struggle that we are all feeling right now is between good and evil, God and the devil! I realize that may seem extreme, but the enemy wants to destroy our nation, derail our destiny and steal the worship that is due to our Lord God Almighty! Our struggle is against demonic powers that have deceived people to do their bidding! The reason the enemy is so intent on revising our history is our past tells us who we are. Erase our past and you can’t know your identity. When an elderly person begins losing their memories, they begin losing a sense of who they are. After all, we are a collection of these memories. Rewrite them and our identity changes. And without a clear identity, one cannot step into their God-given destiny! It has been said that there has never been a nation who has been raised up by the Lord with the sole purpose of taking the Gospel to the nations as the United States of America.

Some of the first pilgrims to arrive in 1607, brought a cross from England, planted it on the shore as they landed, dedicated this land to God and prophesied that the Gospel would go from shore to shore and to the nations of the world! And the devil hates our identity and destiny as a Gospel sending nation and he is doing everything he can to stop and destroy it.

And consider God’s fingerprints on the writing of the Declaration of Independence (from Dutch Sheets Give Him 15 – December 14, 2020).

“As our founders declared their independence from England, they also acknowledged their dependence upon God, fully aware that He was the Author of their national existence. They relied on Him to also provide the necessary wisdom to create and maintain this new nation. The Declaration of Independence has four clear references to God. It speaks of Him as our Lawmaker, Creator, Judge, and Protector. The Declaration concludes with these words: ‘For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.’ …. After signing the Declaration, some wept. Others, like Witherspoon, bowed their heads in prayer. Samuel Adams rose and stated, ‘We have this day restored the Sovereign, to Whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and…from the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come.’”

The Left wants to do away with our constitution, our Declaration of Independence, our memories of this great nation, and rewrite the script for their socialist, Marxist, globalist agenda.

Please keep praying. Don’t listen to what the lying media is saying, or even coward republicans. Our nation’s identity and destiny are at stake. Thank the Lord for His plans and purposes for our nation. Thank Him for the amazing patriots that have gone before us and sacrificed much for our freedom. Thank Him for what He is doing today, as He exposes the corruption and evil schemes of the enemy. Ask Him to raise up patriots in our time and day, who will do whatever it takes to defend our nation from spiritual and physical enemies on the outside and in. Ask God to stir up a praying, faithful filled remnant bride who will step into the battle and not stop until His will for us is fulfilled. God desires our nation to be a Gospel sending force to the nations. May His will be done!!! Please be seeking God about what part are you to play in all this!

Patriots arise!

“Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them.” Ephesian 5:11 (NLT)

While King Saul was at war against the Philistines, there were Israelites who fought for their enemy. When Jonathan and his armor bearer fought single handedly against a vast army, God opened the eyes of those who had become traitors and they rejoined their nation. They saw God’s hand on Jonathon and it inspired hope in them. Who knows why they had been fighting for the godless Philistines, but they had denied their brothers and took up arms against them. But in that moment of truth, those deceived Israelites’ eyes were opened and they stepped back into their identity, and fought for the destiny of their nation.

“Even the Hebrews who had previously gone over to the Philistine army revolted and joined in with Saul, Jonathan, and the rest of the Israelites.” 1 Samuel 14:21 (NLT)

Not only did those soldiers who went AWOL return, but those who were in hiding out of fear also came and joined the battle alongside Saul, Jonathan and the Israelite army. God released a confusion over the Philistines, and they began striking each other with the sword.

“So the Lord saved Israel that day.” 1 Samuel 12:23 (ESV)

Please pray for spiritual patriots, like Jonathan and his armor bearer, to rise up and do whatever it takes to fight against the darkness coming against our nation. Pray that God would open the eyes of those believers who have been fighting for the enemy, that they would “see” and join ranks with their brothers and sisters for our nation. Pray for those who are hiding out of fear of COVID, or of taking a stand in this current battle for our nation, or concerned about what others might think. Ask God to unite His people under one banner. We are called to be ONE NATION UNDER GOD! And, ask Him to save America!

The power of praise!

“May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands,to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron,to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all His faithful people.” Psalm 149:6-9a (NIV)

Our greatest weapon is worship and praise! As we worship and focus our adoration and love toward the Lord, He moves in power against His enemies. He has called us to inflict vengeance on the nations, to bind up heavenly dignitaries and their earthly agents, and to decree the sentences written against them. This is the glory of the Body of Christ. We are His shoulders that the governments of the world rest on (Isaiah 9:6). Our decrees matter!Today take time to worship the One who sits enthroned above the nations and laughs at them (Psalm 2:4). Then respond in prayer and declarations announce His will on earth. 

God is not done, nor is He late!

Check out this translation of Psalm 149.

God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths,
for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!
These warring weapons will bring vengeance
on every opposing force and every resistant power—
to bind kings with chains and rulers with iron shackles.
Praise-filled warriors will enforce
the judgment-doom decreed against their enemies.
This is the glorious honor He gives to all His godly lovers.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
 (TPT)

Ultimate authority!

“A Child has been born for us;
a Son has been given to us.
The responsibility of complete dominion
will rest on His shoulders, and His name will be:
The Wonderful One!
The Extraordinary Strategist!
The Mighty God!
The Father of Eternity!
The Prince of Peace!”
 Isaiah 9:6 (TPT)

This is beautiful Christmas passage about a Son being given to us and a Child being born for us, but catch the second line. “Complete dominion rest on His shoulders!” Other translations put it “the government will rest on His shoulders” (NLT/NIV). That is a lot of authority! Jesus’ last words before ascending to heaven and assuming His place at the right hand of the Father were, “All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Me…” (Matthew 28:18 NIV). Even the book of Revelation records several places where Jesus is said to have an “iron scepter to rule the nations” (Revelation 2:27, 12:5 and 19:15). The authority that Jesus has is above and beyond any other authority, spiritual or physical that exists in heaven or on earth. His authority is over the governments of our world as well as the spiritual principalities and powers that are influencing them.

And the crazy thing about it is, He exercises that authority through His Body, the Ekklesia! In Revelation 2:26, He says He will share that authority with us!!! Elsewhere Jesus had said that what we bind will be bound, and what we loose will be loosed (Matthew 16:18-19). This is all in the context of Jesus telling His Disciples that the gates of hell will not prevail against His advancing Church!

All that to say, we, His praying, obedient people have been given authority on this planet to govern. He has given us keys to open locks/doors that can’t be closed and to close things that can’t be opened! Are you following this? Jesus has ALL AUTHORITY… but He exercises that authority though His remnant bride, who is a governing body!

The battle we are fighting right now is all about will be believe He has given us this authority. We are training to reign with Him. We are not simply to ask God to move this, or expose that. Though that is a great place to start! We are to declare and decree God’s will over our nation. As the ultimate governing body on this planet, we need to forbid the stealing of this election. We need to decree that every place of fraud and corruption will come into the light. We need to declare that every person who has been involved in this “great attempted robbery” would be exposed and brought to justice. We need to declare that, from foot soldiers to masterminds and everyone in-between, all involved would be brought into the light and face the consequence of their treason.

Present your case before the heavenly courts. Remind God of His promises for this nation. Remind Him of the prophetic words that have been spoken about the next four years. Your prayerful declaration carries His authority. Please don’t give in to the lying media and false reports being sent out right now. God is not done, nor is He late. Perhaps He is simply waiting for His people to storm the gates of hell, after all, those gates will not prevail!!!
