All the pressures the believers in Christ are facing and feeling are real!
As the crescendo of pressures of all sorts are mounting up without relief of a seemingly solution, why is it that we feel our lives are so out of control and pressured in all we do?
Why do we feel frustrated and agitated?
There is an answer and a reason and it is so important that we heed the warnings!
Why is it that when we pray, there is no change and it seems our prayers are hitting the ceiling? Where’s the answers?
The answer will come as we conform into God’s order of things.
God is telling us NOW that we don’t have the time to waste! Jesus is coming!
He has put a burning in my heart and soul that won’t subside urging me to sound out to awaken and revive His people!
Yes, we pray for the world, our governments, our churches, and me, myself, and I etc. But the answer is closer than we think…
I had a vision of people laying all around on the ground asleep and some of them were near death, then others quite dead.
Then I saw myself administering CPR to the people!
Revival is NOT a few days of meetings that excite us but brings no lasting change!
True Revival wakes us the people through the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to awaken to life eternal!
To administer CPR to people, (CPR, Christ’s Power Rising) is to release Christ’s Power through us to Rise and Revive those from spiritual death!
Today with having so many churches on every corner, one would wonder why the church looks so much like the world!
The world is in so many churches with its socialistic agenda and false prophets and the ONLY way you will know the difference is to know the Word of God for yourself!
Don’t depend on a minister or reverend to feed you! Find out for yourself and read the Bible! Jesus, the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
This type of temple or religion was in Jesus day too! Jesus gave scathing rebukes to the religious leaders of Jerusalem and prophesied of them to their faces!
Jesus wept over Jerusalem, “Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem how I long to gather you as a hen doth her chicks but you weren’t willing, therefore your house is left desolate.” (*Matthew 23:37-38).
Religious devils occupied the temple and it was the accepted religion of the day in mass, but the people could not live up to their demonic religious demands!
The religious leaders thought they would recognize Messiah when he would come, and HE came and they knew Him not!
Jesus not only left the temple and Jerusalem, he also left his home town of Nazareth because of unbelief. (*Mark 6:3-6)
Jesus went to where the people were! Jesus (The Word made flesh) also taught us how to live, how to reach the lost, and taught us how to die.
Jesus commissioned us believers to go into the highways and byways and compel them to come in!! He could only do what His Father said and He clearly has shown us how to pray and touch God for His leading.
The Church or “Temple” in Jesus’ day was a habitation of buzzards and all sorts of religious demons.
We are supposed to come out of this world and be separate, says The LORD. When you look at your church or temple, does it look more like the world?
We must read the Word of God, (the Bible) then compare. Looking at Jesus’ example of the Church is very different compared to many churches today. (*Matthew 23:37-38)
The LORD has not left us as orphans . He has given us provision and precious Holy promises through His Holy Word the Bible and it equips us to live and minister life to others!
He has taught us how to pray and gives us guidance throughout our lives! For His Word is quick and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword piercing asunder the soul and spirit, joints and marrow and is a discerner of the very thoughts and intents of the heart. (*Hebrews 4:12)
Jesus has revealed that the majority of the church needs TRUE Revival due to the condition of the mainstream, modern, media church that has turned the church into a lifeless religion; filled with religious spirits, doctrines of devils and a spiritual spiraling, socializing, circus club atmosphere!
his is a dangerous time to not study God’s Word and compare it with our lives. The Bible is our ONLY Standard to measure ourselves by.
God is calling His Church to His Divine Order that is found in the Word of God! (The Bible) God is also calling His ministers to do CPR (Christ’s Power Rising) to release Christ’s Power through us to Raise the dead and Revive those in spiritual sleep or spiritual death!
However, as believers, we often fail to see results because we pray for outwardly things when we need to have our own Spiritual House in Order.
We fail to pray correctly, because it will cost us something! When we pray for ourselves and are satisfied with our mediocre lives, something is VERY wrong!
When we say we repent, but keep doing the same old things, we are deceived! To pray and not have corresponding repentance is a sign of spiritual blindness!
“I counsel you to buy from Me gold that has been heated red hot and refined by fire so that you may become truly rich; and white clothes [representing righteousness] to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be seen; and healing salve to put on your eyes so that you may see.” Revelations 3:18 AMP.
The answers are closer than we think! We say we conform into God’s order of things however, there are those in our own families that don’t know Jesus or those who are backslidden.
Have we been saying, “What’s going on and why is our world falling apart?”
The foremost reason is because Jesus is coming back sooner than we think! We only have to watch the news daily to see scripture being fulfilled!
God is refining his people and his prophets especially transforming all into the nature and image of Christ. As we behold Him in His Word, we will reflect Him to this world!
The more time we spend in the Word of God, the more we will reflect His nature and character to the world. We are to be as open books, living epistles seen and read of all men.
There will be persecution for the message we carry and we will feel it!
I pray that God will not leave us alone and that the persecution through man or demonic entities would drive us back to repentance and back to our first love relationship with The LORD. For truly times of refreshing come from the presence of The LORD!
We are living in perilous times, and the enemy is seeking any minuscule, small entrance into our lives to wreak havoc in us.
This is NOT the time to be Prayer Less or we will be very careless with our lives.
Prayer is NOT an option, but a necessity!
We’ve been bought with a price and I am praying for all those I know and those I don’t know online and offline!
We must understand, we can never go back to what was, we must live NOW and live Large in Christ!
The opposition and persecution coming, must move us to keep us close to Jesus’ His heart and mind and to eat His Word (Bible).
It is so important that we heed the warnings in scripture and through His Holy Prophets!
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14.
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate.” Matthew 23:37-38.
“Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him.
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.” Mark 6:3-6.
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
