“But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.” Matthew 13:25 (NIV)
In this past season, the enemy has attempted to silence, even choke out the church. While we were asleep the enemy came to suffocate the body of Christ! But she is waking up! Hear that, she is waking, but has not yet awakened! Much of the church is still slumbering in a time when she needs to rise up and fight the good fight of the faith (1 Timothy 6:12)! Jesus’ words to the church of Sardis ring true today. Though many churches look alive and have a great reputation, Jesus us saying “Wake Up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die” (Revelation 3:2a).
During the past 50 years our nation has been taken over and it’s time to take her back! We need to stand up, defy tyranny and re-establish one nation under God! Much of what we do today, as His church, is not of faith.
Please pray that the church would fully awaken in this hour! If you’re like me it normally takes a while to get up and going on any given day, firing on all cylinders. Ask God for a grace to quickly become alert and fully aware of what is happening in our nation and world right now. Ask Him to blow off of you any place where you still slumber. Pray for your pastor, church leadership and congregation to wake up. The enemy has done enough damage while the church has been sleeping. It is time for us to wake up and engage in this battle before it’s too late.
