MOVING INTO A HIGHER DIMENSION OF FAITH, LOVE, AND POWER

In a recent private prayer session the Spirit of God directed us to scriptures on evil spirits and prayer and fasting.

The root of man’s rebellion against God is that they cannot see for they’ve been blinded by the enemy. For example, no one in their right mind would drive a car 100 mph off a cliff to a certain destruction and death. And yet, in reality, that is what most of mankind is doing when they refuse to surrender to Christ. Prayer and fasting can break through that state of mind by dealing with the evil spirits that blind and bind such people.

One day the disciples asked Jesus why they could not cast out a certain devil.

Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting” (Mt. 17:20-21).

There’s a certain kind of unbelief that only prayer and fasting can overcome.

In the midst of this great moral crisis we are experiencing in America right now, the people of God, especially ministers, must keenly discern that our battle is not with flesh and blood but demonic spirits.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:10).

We must direct our passion and energy for politics and all that is happening in the political realm of our nation into prayer and fasting and loving and praying for God’s enemies. The uncompromisingly righteous can be indignant toward the hatred, evil, and division that has been unleashed in our nation without hating the actual people the enemy is using.

Jesus commanded us to pray for those who spitefully use us and persecute us (Mt. 5:44). Stephen, the first Christian martyr, had the revelation that even the greatest persecutors of the Church must be prayed for. In the hour of his death he forgave Saul and the ones who stoned him (Acts 7:59-60). I’m convinced that it was this great intercessor’s heart and his prayer of forgiveness that resulted in Saul’s subsequent conversion. The greatest persecutor of the Church turned into the greatest apostle. Glory to God!

Stephen’s great love released great power. It’s the same today. The greater the true love of God is demonstrated, the greater the power will be. Prayer and intercession is one of the highest demonstrations of the love of God and a far greater source of power than all the bantering and political rhetoric that we engage in. I know I’ve been guilty of it myself.

When I speak of love I don’t mean this false concept of love as a sentiment of total acceptance, free of the ability to hate anything, which is one of the most popular rationales for which many believers are abandoning the truth and authority of the Scriptures in this hour. I am speaking of true love that lays down its life for even its accusers and enemies as Stephen did. This is where the power to convert sinners is found.

What much of the Church today has done to make up for the lack of power that results in true conversions is adopt a seeker-friendly philosophy, which is based on the sentiment of total acceptance and avoiding the stronger aspects of the gospel while emphasizing the temporal benefits of becoming a Christian as their chief selling point.

What an insult to the Father when men try to establish a work, a church, a ministry without the order, equipment, and character of heaven.

The truth is this: the seeker-friendly philosophy is a much easier route on the flesh than to enter into prayer and fasting and a love that breaks the enemy’s back.

The pattern was established long ago by Jesus and the apostles. They would not leave prayer with fasting and the ministry of the Word (Acts 6:4, 13:1-3). Why? Because they wanted to stay out of the natural realm and live in the Spirit. Jesus and the apostles’ purpose was to stay full of faith and power, wisdom and understanding so they could build correctly according to heaven’s order and establish the Church on a sure foundation.

After witnessing the true power and character that was attached to these early apostolic ministries the people then willingly came and joined themselves to their works and served them. We must return to the order of heaven that can only be established by true apostolic men who live in the Spirit and who see and understand this higher way. We must have ministry gifts who know how to root out and tear down the works of the flesh and plant, establish, and build up according to heaven’s wisdom and order.

An increase of power and souls is coming to those who have learned the Spirit’s ways and refuse to compromise these timeless essentials of which Jesus and the early apostles patterned.

A FRESH PROPHETIC UTTERANCE: MAKE ROOM FOR ME

This is what I see as in the time of the prophets before the NT where the people left their cities that had no rain to go to the cities that had rain and refreshing (Amos 4:7-8).

So it’s a time now where individuals, couples, families, in and out of the church, and those who may not even know that they are being drawn to where it’s raining, and some will even leave places that are now full of man’s attractions and man’s wisdom that do not satisfy.

It’s dry and they’re thirsty and they look for the rain, for the rain brings fruit in their lives and in their hearts and joy… it brings strength to marriages and it brings a satisfaction that only comes from the Holy Ghost moving within.

And so is it a time now I see.

And I’m bringing you help in prayer and support and of those who are being drawn (to Me in you). So accommodate and prepare for those and for even the places you go.

The drawing for the rain, for it is they who are dry and thirsty that are being drawn to God, that are being drawn to the HS, and where He is allowed to move and where He, Jesus, is Lord, and where man has not put up a throne of His own, but have prepared a place for the Lord to rest and reside and dwell.

So make ready the place in the days ahead and the places you go; make a place for Him and He will show.

Isn’t that what happened in Acts 2? And isn’t that what you’ve seen happened even in the OT where My son (servant) prepared a dwelling place for Me?

There were temporary places but then it became a permanent place for a time and a season.

But what happened when the people worshipped Me? My glory came in, and so was it in the days after My Son was resurrected where My people sought Me for days and waited upon Me for the promise…oh for the promise!

They made a place for Me.

So see this and understand this, that those who make a place for Me always have the fruit of Me coming and My glory coming and resting and residing and dwelling.

It has been a practice through the years and you can read it in history and you can read it in My Word.

I come where there is room made for Me.

And just as it was in the temple of old where My servant and chosen one came and built a place and used the wealth that was there for the covering of gold, and the covering of the chairs, the altar and utensils that were used…everything was made to prepare for Me.

They gave the best for Me as they knew how then and there, and then they set their hearts to dwell on Me and worship and sing to Me.

And so it was that I came in power and My glory filled that place and they were slain and could not even stand because they made room for Me.

Make room for Me! Make room for Me!!!

And no longer do you dwell in a place of natural dwelling, but My temple is My dwelling place and My people are My dwelling place.

And those that give up their lives and surrender to Me, and make a sacrifice unto Me and become molded in Me, and become precious in Me–they are those that become the gold and the utensils of old, for they are the pure place that I can come, for they make themselves ready like gold; they make themselves ready in their hearts with worship…

Make room for Me!

And I shall fill every heart and I shall fill every place, and then there shall come rain and a visitation and a place where the hungry and thirsty will come.

This is My wisdom, says the Lord. Make room for Me.

A NATION OF BLIND HYPOCRITES LEADING USEFUL IDIOTS INTO A POSSIBLE CIVIL WAR

Recently I was listening to an interview with Chelsea Clinton who stated how serious of a Christian she was while promoting the cause for abortion. My brain froze when I heard her say that abortion actually helps the economy. How blind and hypocritical can one be?

This attitude portrays the hypocrisy that has swept our nation.

We are a nation that accepts pornography but supposedly hates sexual abuse.

We are a nation that doesn’t believe in gender, but fights for women’s rights.

We are a nation that believes no child should be left behind, but we have aborted over 60 million babies.

Many call themselves Christians while opposing God’s moral Law and everything Jesus and the early apostles penned and taught.

Reprobates legislate ungodly laws, and useful idiots swallow their Marxist ideologies and keep following them.

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause of whose goals they are not fully aware and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The term was originally used to describe non-Communists regarded as susceptible to Communist propaganda and manipulation.

Barrack Obama and his administration were a modern day national example of leaders who made many more Americans susceptible to its radical socialist propaganda. It did not originate with him but he and his administration pushed it far more than any other presidency. Our institutions of learning from kindergarten to college and university levels are now filled with this agenda. Hillary Clinton would’ve advanced this agenda to new levels had not God intervened.

What the Obama presidency did was open up a door to evil spirits and a blatant hypocrisy that was injected into our nation.

We’ve lost our moral compass. Confusion now marks our degenerated society. Hypocrisy rules and lawlessness has invaded our land.

“Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Mt. 23:28)

Jesus foretold of times like these (Mt. 24).

When any nation can no longer judge between good and evil, right and wrong, and light and darkness they are reprobates. The Bible describes such as “becoming futile in their thoughts, their foolish hearts being darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…” (Rom. 1:21-22).

Why do these people and many of our political leaders keep suppressing the truth?

As this continually happens then God gives them up and gives them over to a debased or a reprobate mind.

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness (v. 24).

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions (v. 26).

God gave them over to a debased mind (v. 28).

Paul describes such people, not only in his letter to the Romans but in his other epistles as well. Here’s one example in his letter to Titus:

“They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good” (Titus 1:16).

Here’s another description in his letter to Timothy:

“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Tim. 3:2-5).

How do people in such a condition even sleep at night? Isn’t it because most of them are blinded to their true condition and unaware that they are in fact under the wrath of God? How can they even look at themselves in the mirror each day? Isn’t it because they are grossly deceived?

I cannot imagine being so blind to your own sinfulness and the multitude of your own crooked ways, but yet having enough audacity to scrutinize the sins and faults of others. This is where much of our nation is right now. Just take the Kavanaugh hearings as one small but glaring example (actually its a big and historic example).

With so many in the House and Senate having succumbed to the same sexual sins they accuse Justice Kavanaugh of, how could they so proudly and arrogantly point the finger at him? It is the same condition as that of the Laodiceans of whom Jesus said believed they “were rich and in need of nothing”, but in fact were “wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.”

Among them there are still many church goers, but they are not humble, broken, and contrite. Rather, they fit the awful description of what the apostle described of a last day people in our aforementioned texts.

Here’s the good news! As this cloud of gross darkness continues to envelop our nation and the world, many more people are feeling its effects and being increasingly sensitized to the emptiness of their own hearts. I believe this clash between darkness and light could result in another civil war right here in our own nation, but will also result in another great awakening and an unprecedented harvest of souls. As always the devil has overplayed his hand, and what he meant for utter evil and destruction shall turn for great good.

I see an increase of judgment and revival moving simultaneously within our land. I see a remnant Church increasing in prayer, purity, and power.
