You know that uneasy atmosphere experienced just before a big storm is about to attack~ dark clouds rolling, building, tornadoes forming, or a hurricane about to arrive? They're announced by lightning cracking and angry thunder. We hurry to take cover, for lightening can be deadly, and tornadoes destroy, hurricane winds blast ferociously bringing huge waves upon the land. Destruction strikes wantonly!
That same threat has invaded the spiritual world. Has it left an uneasy restlessness in your spirit too? That’s good! We all must be aware of the signs of the times. As Jesus remonstrated:
Matthew 16:3 (AMP)
And in the morning, It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and has a gloomy and threatening look. You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
With this latest blast against God~ our Supreme Court illegaly proclaimed gay marriage as lawful in our nation~ it's a blatant proclamation of war against Christians! We can see clearly the aim of satan to destroy us. Pray my friends for America, for we are under hellish attack, and the necessary response of the Body of Christ will bring much conflict to our country. O, my friends, pray for all Pastors everywhere today! These are the last of the last days! The enemy is making his super big push against Jesus and Christians, the Body of Christ. Please stand together with us in prayer. Paul called upon his Christians:
Romans 15:30-31 (Amp.)
“I appeal to you [I entreat you], brethren, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ
and by the love [given by] the Spirit, to unite with me
in earnest wrestling in prayer to God in my behalf.
31 [Pray] that I may be delivered (rescued) from the unbelievers in Judea
and that my mission of relief to Jerusalem may be acceptable and
graciously received by the saints (God’s people there),
Of all the possibilities, Paul requested prayer as his biggest need. We can take our assignments from the Word of God and see how we can help our nations. I’ll share a prayer from GPAN that we can confess over Pastors:
Father, You promised that Your burden is easy and Your yoke is light. We speak that over every pastor throughout all the earth today, that Your burden is easy and Your yoke is light. Thank You for eyes to see that, and that they roll the care onto you. Each one, nothing upon their shoulders but all upon the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You, Father, for divine joy springing up within them and answers to their prayers. We plead the blood of Jesus over each one of them. For every pastor throughout the whole earth. We thank You for revelation knowledge flowing in each pastor.
Every attack against them, we call you down in Jesus’ name. The blood of the Lamb is against you. Their families are covered in the blood of Jesus. Thank You for a spirit of rejoicing to come upon them and the spirit of faith. Father, You said You’d make crooked paths straight, so in the name of Jesus Christ, we ask You to straighten the paths for the pastors. Straighten their paths. We declare their paths are straightened in Jesus’ name.
We thank You that they have a great yearning for Your presence, that they enter that place with You, the secret place with You more and more as they see the day approach. We bind discouragement in the name of Jesus. You fowl spirit of discouragement, you must come down. The blood of the Lamb is against you. All provision flows and flows… We speak more than enough for every pastor. An abundant supply.
Thank You for the spirit of truth resting upon them, Father. We bind deception from every pastor in Jesus’ name. For Your glory, Lord. That Your Word would spread like a fire. Boldness to speak, that they would have supernatural boldness to speak. And the ability to quench every fiery dart of the wicked one.
Our victory will come from Pastors preaching truth from the pulpits! And from us praying, standing for righteousness, and reaching out to others with the Gospel.
