PLEASE JOIN ME TO PRAY FOR THE ELECTIONS and the USA. I had the honor to lead our congregation into intercession yesterday for our country and the elections. Not only a time of intercession but a time to DECLARE the GOOD THINGS OF GOD over our country. I hope this encourages you and stirs you to pray like never before. We need GOD TO MOVE!
🎉There is an excitement welling up deep with in me. 🎉Despite the confusion and restlessness in our nation GOD IS ON THE THRONE! 👑If Hillary wins there will continue to be a revelation and unveiling of the corruption that we have never experienced before in our country. I have no fear, but excitement because the prayers of the church and the saints who have gone before us have cried out to God to heal our land. How can God heal if we refuse to deal with hidden sin. I pray that all unrighteousness that is hidden will be REVEALED, for Hillary personally and all her ties and affiliations as well as our government. This goes for Trump as well, If he is elected I pray that the hidden sins would be revealed as well. Purifying a person or a government can only lead to greater favor and blessing. 🎗
We need to move from a place of dread and worry to a place of Faith! From a place of hate and division to a place of Love and Understanding. ❤️I have many Christian friends who are democrats. They love America and have a desire for it to prosper and for its people to live in health and safety. There are good and bad things on both sides of the isle. There are areas on the Republic side that need a softer heart when it comes to taking care of the mentally ill, those who have been abused and desperately need help. BUT we need Wisdom on how to go about these things. It isnt just about throwing money 💸at the problem and going into debt hoping it will all work out. We NEED HEAVENLY WISDOM AND STRATEGY 💡to help the social areas of society!! We need to show love to our youth and train them in the way God has given us in the Bible to live a life of purity before marriage 💍and what it means to be faithful in all things to your spouse after marriage. We need to teach them how and new marrieds about how to have strong families and keep God’s word as the center and follow after his statutes.
We need to help struggling marriages, and those who are abusing others verbally, emotionally, physically and sexually. We need to teach men & women how to provide for their families, at a young age. Teach them to be responsible and work hard so they are good employees and have ambition to move up the ladder. We need to take care of the elderly and not forsake them. The heath of Society begins at Home and then goes into our schools, businesses and government ect. God has a plan, 👌we need to partner with HIM and stop finding ways to disagree with others. Its time to work together as a nation, in our churches -UNITY & PURE HEARTS towards each other!
🇺🇸God has GREAT PLANS FOR AMERICA- GOD LOVES AMERICA AND HAD NOT GIVEN UP ON HER- PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GIVE UP ON HER AS WELL!!🇺🇸
God I cry out for my country!! 🙏🏻 Please OPEN OUR EYES 👀 TO TRUTH!!! 🔦Remove the blindness of Deception that has come through corruption. LET YOUR TRUTH BE REVEALED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 🇺🇸 BUT GOD even more let 💞 hearts Be changed and softened to accept the truth!! Father we want your favor to return to America and we know it can only come when our hearts are united with you. You alone are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. You are in Control! We will no longer sit back and give in, we will take our responsibility serious for our country and Vote! We will partner with you even when we do not understand all the answers. 🎤JESUS COME AND TOUCH US, make us strong in your might, overcome our weakness so we can stand up and fight. Let your Glory fall on the USA. Let it Go forth from here to the nations. Let your fragrance rest in this place as we gather to seek your face. Let your kingdom come! Let YOUR WILL BE DONE. LET US SEE ON EARTH 🌎 THE GLORY OF YOUR SON ☀️!
With ballots coming in the mail, I wanted to share something that happened during the primaries that transformed my perspective big time. 😱 I wrote this back in April-May 2016 and it still is true for me today. Everyone has their own opinion and this is what completely changed mine. I believe only God could give me dreams like this to change my heart because afterwards I did a 180.
Let me start first by saying this, I have always been as far right as you could ever get as far pure conservative views and moral compass and have been labeled the crazy conservative by many of my friends. (In 7th grade I preached to my private Jr. High about the bad influences of secular music and rock & roll, see! They even thought I was way too conservative in 1992) So for me to say that I am even thinking of voting for Donald Trump seems absolutely ludicrous. But there are times when what we think we should do is different than what is going on in our spirit. A couple months ago I was praying that God would visit his people in their dreams about the presidential candidates. But totally forgot about that when I had a dream in April that shook me to the core. In my dream my son was sitting up on top of a dresser playing with a ball. He dropped the ball and it rolled under the dresser on the dirty ground. To my surprise Donald Trump was standing there in his nice suit and he bent down and got on his hands and knees to reach for the ball way under the dresser and stood up with a kind smile on his face. He handed the ball to my son. In my dream I was astounded and told him, “Please you don’t have to do that.” but he said “I want to.” My son continue to drop the ball over and over and the same thing happened again and again with Donald Trump getting on his knees and reaching for the ball kindly giving it to my son as his suite got dirtier and dirtier. I remember thinking in my dream why would someone like that not care about getting dirty just to help my son. I had so much peace in my dream. I woke up astounded at what I had dreamed, but more so the peace that I felt and the shock in seeing Donald Trump serve my son in a way I never thought he would.
I had a second dream a month later, I was in a room with Mr. Trump and he was so gentle, compassionate and sensitive while talking to me. My heart felt compelled by love for him. It washed over me like something I have never felt for a presidential candidate. I woke up again in complete shock. What in the world is happening to me? Everything in my natural rational mind says Trump doesnt have the moral compass to be my choice, but God is definitely doing something to change my heart in my dreams. I sincerely pray if Trump is God’s choice that I am not the only one being changed by my dreams.
After the endorsement of Trump by Dr. Ben Carson, now more than ever, those in the conservative media need to hear our voices. They need us to help bring understanding to help them realize there are a huge number of constitutional conservative purists who see beyond the surface of Donald Trump to what God can do through him in our nation. I believe Carson can help open the eyes of other Republicans since he has lead such a pure campaign in speech, beliefs and conduct. This is what I shared with Dr. Ben Carson the morning after his FB announcement
“Your example of faith shines bright and pure as gold. You are not in this for the politics as some may say now. I am praying that God will guide His people to make the right decision. That the religions spirit of America will be exposed and the Spirit of God will be poured out on our land in a way like we never would have expected. Now we are praying for a Damascus Road experience for Trump. That his eyes would be open to Jesus Christ like never before. To God be the glory!”
The United States of America has had a Republican-controlled House and Senate for the last four years. Unfortunately even with Republican control Obama has passed treacherous laws that have not been stopped in our country. The Democratic Party is not the only one who has been filled with corruption the Republican Party Establishment has blood on its hands also. They have not stood for conservative values like they preach about. They cater to lobbyists and campaign donors being swayed by their lust for money and power. I guess since Trump already has money and power he does not have to cater to anyone.
I only know that God is our only savior for America and by His power he can change and draw ANYONE TO HIM. I think people forget that with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! God is messing me up with this big time because it is defying all logic why I am being drawn to Trump. MAYBE GOD KNOWS SOMETHING WE DO NOT!
I am praying for you Mr. Trump! Praying that God protects you and your family. Praying God gives you wisdom, understanding and discernment. I am asking God to give me scriptures for him this is the first one
James 1:19-27 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do. Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Last night I was speaking with a Ted Cruz delegate and she said she has never met a nice Trump supporter. I told her that there are thousands and thousands out there who have held back this election cycle in voicing their opinions publicly because they feel as soon as they begin to lift their head out of the sand every Christian, Republican, Democrat and all those in between will come and brutally whack their head off. But as has been seen all over the country they are finally able to make their voices heard when they are alone with their ballot. I’m praying the church listens to what God is saying in this time.
Its a good thing that God said He will build His church, we have to be like Peter which means “the rock”, solid, immovable, reliable, and strong. The rest is in God’s hands. He has given us the keys which allows us access to whatever we need. We are overcomers and we are WINNING! No power of hell can overtake us! Its in the book!! Partnering with Heaven to release His treasures on Earth is our greatest reward and daily adventure.
Matthew 16:18-19 New King James Version (NKJV)
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed[a] in heaven.”
I want to see breakthroughs in areas people have been praying for and we are entering into a season where God is pouring out His Spirit in new and powerful ways. He is strengthening our foundations and renewing our purpose as His will is gladly obeyed. Favor – Blessing and Increase our released as we become His hands and feet to our community. New Hope- New Strength & Freedom is ours!
The one thing I have learned to hold on to is the word of God. When He says something He means it. His promises are true and His words are everlasting. The Word of the Lord Stands Forever (Isaiah 40 awesome chapter, Psalms 119:89 “The Word of The Lord is eternal. It stands Firm in the Heavens” WOW. Just google that and see all the amazing verses that come up!) People can say whatever the heck they want about you, your dreams and the plans that God has for you
BUT THEY CAN SAY OR DO NOTHING TO CHANGE THEM UNLESS…..YOU AGREE WITH THEM AND ALIGN YOUR SPIRIT WITH THEM!!!!
Stand on the word of God! Stand on His truth, Stand on the Words he has given you and promised to you.
LET NO WORD FROM EARTH OR HELL PERSUADE YOU OR PUT FEAR IN YOUR HEART!
Just laugh at it HahahahAaaaa!
The Word Of God is LIFE if we want it. So many times we go through our day weighed down and wishing things were different, BUT it doesn’t have to be like that!! God wants us to Rejoice Always and Again I say Rejoice.Even in the pits David rejoiced. We do not realize that many of the Psalms we read were written when David was running for his life before he even was put on the throne as king. He knew his destiny, he was anointed by Samuel for the task as a boy, but he had to fight for his life against everyone who is against him. Take time to read through the book of Psalms, especially when you feel overwhelmed.
There’s nothing like the word of God to pick you up, set you straight, give you hope and assurance of the promises that God’s word will never fail. It’s impossible! It is impossible for the words and promises of God to fail!!! Take THAT lies! You have NO place in my brothers and sisters! You have no place in the body of Christ. Holy Spirit reveal the TRUTH and set Your People FREE!!!
Its all about our Attitude!! A choice. Listen to Peter. This is a Powerful Reminder to Cast Our cares on HIM
1 Peter 5:2-11
Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example. And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor. In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders.
And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith.
Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. All power to him forever! Amen.
It is very interesting to me that God said to Cast your cares on him because he cares for you RIGHT BEFORE HE gives a huge warning to Stay Alert!!! Because the enemy is prowling to devour you.
It is like He knows a secret about not carrying unnecessary hurts & burdens because it opens up the door for the enemy to mess with us. We are supposed to stand firm and keep our heart and emotions not filled with hurt and bitterness. WOW !!! THE WORD OF GOD CAN PREACH!!
Don’t allow your pride to hold onto bitterness and hurt!!! It gives the enemy legal right into your heart and mind! He will mess with you, bind you up, create jealousy, evny, hatred, anger and all sorts of evil to bind you up -UNTIL YOU SURRENDER YOUR HURTS to the Lord. Ask forgiveness for holding on to the hurt and allowing any of the evil attachments mentioned above or others creep in. Receive His forgiveness. Ask for the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth for the lies you are believing about the situation and walk out the steps of forgiveness to the person who hurt you. Then RESIST the Devil!!! Draw close to God. You are an overcomer because of the blood of the lamb and the Word of YOUR Testimony! Take Your Freedom BACK!!
A quote from Rick Joyner today keeps going through my head, he said, “It it God who sets the borders for nations”. It makes me wonder what God’s perspective is in all of this. Very interesting times we are living in. Praying for Europe, especially England and the Northern EU countries.
I have a huge excitement and anticipation for our own country now. I pray it will wake up and see our country through heavens perspective as we draw closer to our own elections. Its time to make our voices heard against the establishment! To become a safe and prosperous nation so we can once again be a Blessing to the nations without going further into debt!
Here is a very insightful article explaining what the Brexit is and how it affexts all of Europe. https://www.stratfor.com/analysis/what-expect-after-brexit
Just now as we were watching a show I was able to give my boys a quick social/economic lesson. I told them in a very simple explanation that Having a governing body regulate private businesses will change the landscape of a country taking away local culture and tradition, while stripping away the power of the individual. The EU caters to special interests, who like lobbyists in the US, do all they can to make their agendas pushed through by financial donations. It will be incredible to watch other countries in the EU become empowered to do the same thing as Britain. Stand up to make their country great again. Putting the power of the decisions of their country back into their own hands not in the hands of a European Governing body. Immediately you can see it in the difference of responses from Obama to Trump. Government control versus power to the people.
God is doing something we have just begun to get a peek at. The shaking happening worldwide is setting us up for a move of God that we haven’t even begin dreaming about.
Early this morning I saw and heard a picture of the horses of heaven coming to a quick and brief halt! I could see the dirt clouds and the shock on the horses faces. We need to position ourselves to have ears to hear, eyes to see and hearts ready to respond to what God calls each and everyone of us to do in this time. I am excited and anticipating amazing things in this season!
It only took me only a few minutes of listening to a youtube video my very liberal friend sent me this morning of a pastor preaching yesterday about how it is not right for Christians to grieve over the shooting yesterday in Orlando. After the first point I begin to weep. I have so many friends in that lifestyle and it ripped my heart out to hear what happened in Orlando and I have been silent about it out of grief. My dad spoke an amazing message yesterday (all written before the shooting even took place, talk about being prophetic!) that I wish was all over youtube. He talked about Zacheus who was hated and tax collectors and how Jesus spent lots of time with them just loving on them. He talked about the woman who was caught in adultery and brought out into the square by the religious leaders to be stoned. Jesus wrote in the sand and asked those who had no sin to cast the first stone. I wish I knew what he wrote to the Pharisees in the ground, probably secret sins they knew no one else knew about. He told the woman, look where are your accusers as all the men walked away.
I was so heavy in my heart just beginning listening to the twisted crap this preacher he sent me was saying. I vehemently disagree that God would not have us grieve for the murder of homosexuals. Killing is wrong no matter what the reason. Someone could say I should be killed because of gluttony or being envious – the sin of homosexuality is no different than any other sin. I mess up and have to ask forgiveness all the time. The bottom line is Jesus wept when those precious men and women were killed and hurt. He gave His life to be beaten and killed for them. He is the only human in this world to raise himself from the dead so everyone, no matter what sin they have done, can have hope of freedom, forgiveness and eternal life. My whole perception of homosexuals has drastically changed in the last couple years. (See my blog post -“Love Wins”) God has brought a tremendous compassion for them instead of disgust and hatred. When I saw my sin through God’s eye, and that His love for me is the same as it is for them- I was transformed like nothing else could ever do to me.
Preachers like the one on youtube take a little bit of the Bible, twist it out of context and put their own thoughts and opinions to it. It is a very slippery slope. I’m sorry those people are out there who misrepresent Christians. They will be out there twisting and judging till Jesus comes back. Those people have never realized the depravity they were in and the intense love and grace that Jesus can or did save them from. I know there are so many places people want to point fingers, from extremists, ISIS, Islam, homophobia, Christians, Republicans, Democrats ect. I have take the position of pointing at my own heart and making sure my attitude is correct and filled with humility, grace and God’s love (my dad said the same thing yesterday). That’s where my change takes place.
I am glad this friend of mine sent me a note this morning asking my opinion of that twisted preacher on youtube. I like to keep lines of communication open with him, because even though we are always on different sides, he many times helps to keep me in a right perspective! I pray for him like I pray for all my friends and family. I pray as we encounter people all walks of life and also when they come visit our churches they will be free from being condemned while being overwhelmed by love and acceptance. (I reworded the beginning and the end of this post because most of it is exactly what I sent him as a response to asking me to watch the video, he gave me permission to post this. Thanks 😉)
Paul had it right when he said, “Pressing FORWARD” because taking time to look back at regrets or failures stunts our growth and advancement. Self Pity and Self Doubt take place as we look behind us. God gives grace to the humble, however, the humble doesn’t mean we are weighed down and depressed, it means we acknowledge our dependence on God and our eyes are on Him as we walk in line with His precepts.
Trying to please everyone will never happen, but our Papa knows our heart and intensions. At the end of the day all of our works are dirty rags. (Isa 64:6) We are the clay and He is the Potter. We are formed by his hand. (Isa 64:8) It is easy to walk through life and never invest ourselves into others, but what fruit can take place if we keep all the seeds to ourself. “The one who plant and the one who waters work together for the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their hard work.” (1 Cor 3:8)Keeping love to ourself is plain selfish. We don’t pour our lives out to other’s for our own gain, if we do we will always be disappointed. Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, always protects, always trusts, always hopes LOVE NEVER FAILS. (I Cor 13)
I once had a friend ask me why I go to church all the time. My answer was simple, There is safety in a multitude of counselors. I don’t know about you but I need accountability in my life. If I just Stay at home and never have fellowship, I am missing out on having a lot of trusted godly people speak into my life. Many times people do not want to open up if they don’t know their pastors, but it’s hard to know who your your pastors and spiritual leaders are if you don’t go to church and interact with them.
I mean Facebook is great and all, but that is not real fellowship. The devil wants to isolate us, he knows if he can isolate us from the body of Christ then we are more open to him twisting our life into knots. There is something about corporate worship, exhortation and hearing what God wants to speak to us as a body and as a region that you just don’t receive from home. Every church has a mandate given to them by God. As a member of that body you are a part of that incredible blessing and responsibility.
There is a trend going on right now that going to church is just a bunch of legalism. To me that is just a lie from the enemy. Every time I am burdened down and heavy and feel like there’s no way I can go to church, that is just the day that God has an incredible breakthrough for me to receive. The encouragement and prayer that takes place, as well as, the friendships built and strengthened has lifted me higher than any facebook post or online message I have ever read and listened to. That’s a fact! Hebrews 10:24-25 “and let us consider thoughtfully how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, not forsaking our meeting together as believers for worship and instruction, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more faithfully as you see the day of Christ’s return approaching. “
