Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’” Jeremiah 6:16 (ESV)

Darkness covers the earth, even gross darkness over the people (Isaiah 60:1-2). Yes, the darkness is gross and getting even darker. Jonathan Cahn has said, “the gods have returned.” Btw, his book is called The Return of the Gods. These ancient deities who were cast out when Christianity advanced in the world have come back with a vengeance. Jesus said that if a demon goes out of a person but returns to an empty house, it will bring seven other spirits worse than itself and the latter condition will be worse than the former. Jesus finished His statement by saying, “so it will be with this evil generation” (Matthew 12:43-45). So apparently, the same principle applies to generations and nations! This is what has happened in our nation. Paul tells us about our struggle being against evil spirits (Ephesians 6:12), who have been here for 1000’s of years! Our struggle has not changed from the ancient days. Elijah accused the people of his day of straddling two opinions (1 Kings 18:21). We’re told that the spirit of Elijah would return as well (Malachi 4:5). Elijah was a confronter, who did not remain silent in the day of kingdom conflict!

The result of America rejecting God, our house has been swept clean but it didn’t sit empty for very long. In the 1960’s God was kicked out of schools, which began a steep and rapid ride down a slippery slope of moral decay. When God got kicked out of the house the ancient gods have come and filled it. We’re talking Baal, Asherah, Ishtar and all their assistants. Sure, they may go by different names, but because these gods didn’t die, they were simply sent into exile waiting for their time to return. And they have come back with a vengeance! Instead of the God of the Bible, these gods now occupy our schools, our government, our entertainment, etc. It is called “wokism!” I know even considering that the gods have returned is so outside the box of most of our understanding, but please urgently look at this!!!

Jeremiah tells us to look for the old road and walk in it. That ancient path where we believe in God, the Maker of heaven and earth, and live accordingly. Our Creator provided us a manual to live by. As the manufacturer, Maker, it would make sense for us, the created, to pay attention and obey it, and not just choose what parts we want to believe!

Probably the most quoted revival passage is 2 Chronicles 7:14. That is exactly what is needed in this hour.

“Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” (NLT)

Since the enemy operates with lies and deception, ask the Lord to reveal every place where you have allowed these falsehoods to creep into your belief system. Repent of every place He shows, and return to the ancient path. Ask Him for eyes to see how and where these gods are operating today, in our nation, in your church, in your home! Cry out for the remnant, those who have not bowed to the gods of this day, to rise up, to stand, to humble themselves, to pray even more, and to seek His face with all their hearts. Will you be one of these that refuse to bow your knee to any other god but Jesus? Yes, we need a move of God in our land!!!
