PROPHETIC ALERT: BE SOBER, BE VILIGENT, BE PREPARED AND READY!
Word for today: March 16,2020 PROPHETIC ALERT: BE SOBER, BE VILIGENT, BE PREPARED AND READY!
With everything in our nation right now changing right before our eyes, so many asking what should we do? Should we buy extra food, take the money out the bank, get gas for the cars, extra water, not travel, not go out eat or go anywhere?
What if they declare marshal law? These are all legitimate questions you and your families must discuss. It is critical now to stay in touch with your family member and the Body of Christ as well so we can all hear personally and as a Body what the Lord is speaking.
There is not one “uniform things to do” for each family specially when we live in vast and different parts of the country. What the Lord may tell the Saints in New York City maybe different that Pensacola Florida or Meridian Idaho.
Each of us are in different places in our walk with God, and also placed strategically in our nation for God’s intended purpose so we all must listen carefully individually and collectively.
God has given us “common sense” for a reason. Example, If I walk out on the Interstate 10 and see an 18 wheeler coming straight at me, I don’t have to pray if I should get out of the way.
God gave me a brain and common sense to sense the danger and get out of the way of 18 wheeler. When I wake up in the morning I don’t ask if I should brush my teeth, I just do it because it is necessary.
Likewise there are practical things God would have you do if you listen? If businesses are closing down, and the state and local leaders institute polices that limit you ability to travel, get to a store, or get the things you need for you and your family. Now would be the time to go get those things in advance.
That would be prudent. It is not unspiritual to get extra food, gas for your car, cash if needed out of your bank, extra supplies of your medicines you use. It is not unspiritual to wash your hands often and well, cover you mouth when you cough and wash your hands.
You should plan like if a storm or hurricane was coming so your family is taken care of and perhaps you may even get enough to help others in their time of need. Not only would that be practical but spiritual as well.
It is not a lack of faith to “plan and prepare.” That is God’s wisdom he has given us! Let us use it wisely. I would just sit down and wait upon the Lord to get his perfect strategy for you and your family that is rooted in God’s sense and in the wisdom He has given you.
When you go on a trip, do you not budget and have enough money to go, get snacks, plan out your route, book your hotels if needed, book a flight if you are going? Why do you do it? Because these are the things, the finances, and all the inter working you need to go on your trip and back. YOU PREPARE!
That is how we must approach these coming days and weeks. Planning is from God. God says in Jeremiah 29:11 God knows the thoughts and plans He has for us, thoughts for our well being and peace, not evil, that we would have hope in our final outcome.
This is very important to understand. This pandemic did not catch God by surprise. Nothing is happening in this world without his foreknowledge.
He has always provided a way of safety and security for His people when they turn to him and trust Him with all their hearts and repent from their sins. I encourage each family and your entire family members even outside of your home to pray together, work together, and plan together as well.
Likewise I want to encourage God’s leaders to also seek the Lord for their congregations and ministries they lead. Many are looking to you for the guidance of the Lord.
As leaders, we need to spend time with God, and help the people of God stay strong, stay vigilant, and to know what God would desire them to do. When things like this come upon nations 2nd Chronicles 7:14 becomes even more important.
I believe that each Leader should be calling people together to truly seek God, repent for our backsliding, idolatry and sin in the church and in our lives first and foremost and then for the sins of the nations.
If we just pray for the sins of the nation and not see our own, God will not answer us. It says If my people called by name would humble themselves, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways.
I believe when the church repents and turns back fully to Jesus and returns to their first love and being in love with them, God’s glory is going to fill his church in the midst of this great darkness that is trying to come upon the earth as Isaiah 60 says.
If the Lord tells you not to have all the believers come together in the church as some churches are doing, what is God plan for you and your ministry? Does God want you to have more services with social distancing things in place?
Or does he tell you to meet together and trust Him for his protection and security? He know us! He knows what His plans are for each of us and our ministries and churches? Let us seek him for his divine strategies NOW!
Does he want you to order zoom video where your people can gather together on line and you can minister to them? If you are worried about the resources for your building and for people, people can still donate on line to help continue the work.
It is also important to know where each person in your ministry is at, how do we love one another? How do we serve one another? If there are poorer people in your church of fellowship, can you come together with them, find out what they need and as a community of believers get them the things they need to be ready?
I pray we don’t say, “stay warm and fed” and not take care of their needs which James rebukes for and says, “Faith without works is dead.”
There are some elderly people in our congregations and ministries, how are we going to care for them? What do they need? Do we need to get them household things, medicines, food? It is time to love one another as the Lord loves us.
Don’t leave the elderly vulnerable now. THIS IS THE TIME TO ACT FOR THEM AND HELP THEM. CALL THEM, TALK TO THEM, SEE WHAT THEY NEED AND LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE THERE FOR THEM!
There are practical things the Holy Spirit wants us to do. Don’t get super spiritual over these things. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you and direct you.
Follow his intimations, or his promptings or speaking to you in indirect ways. Don’t say, “that is just my thoughts.” Ask Him, Lord is that you? He may be directing you in new ways and guiding you by His own eyes.
Listen together, listen to each other, pray and seek God for his wisdom and guidance and trust him with all your heart. Proverbs 3:4-6 is for such a time as this. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not... on your own understanding.. but in all your ways, acknowledge him and He will direct your path.” That is a covenant promise God made with us.
Spiritually what would God desire us to do?
1. Fast and Pray for God’s guidance on what His will is for your life, your family, your church and your region.
2. God is about to give new blue prints and marching orders to his body. Pray to receive them.
3. While many unbelievers, who don’t know God may go into hiding, He may call his body to come to the forefront to declare His word. Be ready!
4 We must be sensitive to the Spirt of God’s leading. If he says stay home, stay home. If he says to go, go! He asked Isaiah, “who will go for me?” He said, “here I am Lord, send me.” Remember, He told the 12 apostles to go didn’t he, to preach the gospel to the broken-hearted, to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out devils. Freely we have received freely give.
5. This may be the hour God is rising up his full grown sons and daughters to rise up and take their place to effect the nation and the world around them as He said he would. BE READY, BE PREPARED, AND BE WILLING TO OBEY THE LORD NOT MATTER WHAT !
6. We must spend quality time with the Lord in His presence to get his heartbeat, his plans, his strategies for our own lives, our families and our ministries, churches and our nation. God is going to download supernatural instructions like you have never seen or heard before. God is control not the enemy.
7. Let every word be established by two or three witnesses. Now is the time for the true apostolic and prophetic elders, “the new breed of leaders” to come together to seek the face of God as they did in the book of Acts.
The Holy Spirit is going to speak if we come together. SEEK WISE COUNSEL IN THIS HOUR AND DON’T BE A LONE RANGER. THERE IS SAFETY IN THE MULTITUDE OF COUNSELORS!
If God calls us to gather together in person, on line, you know we will all be safe and protected by Psalm 91. God is going to confirm to us as a family like never before. We are not going to guess what God wants us to do, we are going to know what God wants us to do as found in the books of Acts. WE must trust HIM!
8. This may be the time where we use the internet more to communicate, pray and get the battle plans of the Lord.
9. We need more than one day of national prayer. I believe what the Lord directed Joel to do in Joel chapter 2 is what God may desire of us to do.
Beloved, God has put a way forth for us in His word. Joel chapter 2 and 2nd Chronicles 7:14 are spiritual Keys to change our nation and for God to move to remove this plague from our land.
It is imperative that we examine our hearts individually, as families and as the Body of Christ. How does God see our life today? Are we the church at Ephesus who lost their first love for Jesus and abandoned Him in this nation. Or are we the church at Sardis, that has a reputation of being alive but are dead in God’s eyes?
Are we the church that tolerates the prophetess Jezebel that has allowed all types of sexual sin and idolatry to be accepted in our midst? Are we eating the “worlds diet of food” sacrificed to idols? Are we are nation of believers like the church in Laodecia who say “we are rich and in need of nothing, yet Jesus says, they are blind, pitiable and naked? If we are in the sight of God, will we repent?
Beloved, are we going to guess we are ok with God and never change, or will we ask God how he see us individually, as a family, or a churches in His sight. How does our nation look to Him? Will we ask Him?
If we are honest with God, in this nation we love “the American dream” more then we love God. We kill babies in the womb as a convenience, we took prayer out of school and out of our government and so much more and this is OK with God?
Many churches and leaders have put the needs of men before the needs of God and become “seeker friendly” instead of God friendly. And to many leaders desire to build themselves their own kingdom, their own Babel instead of advancing the Kingdom of God, and this is OK with God?
Beloved, We must repent now while we have time. Joel was the voice of God speaking to a nation to change 3000 years ago and God’s words to him today are speaking to the church and his nation in our day:
Joel 2 Rend Your Heart
12 “Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.”
13 Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.
14 Who knows? He may turn and relent and leave behind a blessing—grain offerings and drink offerings for the Lord your God.
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly.
16 Gather the people, consecrate the assembly, bring together the elders, gather the children, those nursing at the breast. Let the bridegroom leave his room and the bride her chamber.
17 Let the priests, who minister before the Lord, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, Lord. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, and a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, "Where is their God?”
Beloved, isn’t that many unbelievers are saying now? Where is your God? Well, where is He? Is He hiding? Is He powerless? Or is He waiting for His people to return back to Him with their whole hearts. Is He waiting for us to repent sincerely so He can answer us speedily. I believe He is. Let us ready what He tells Joel?
The Lord’s Answer
18 Then the Lord was jealous for his land, and took pity on his people.
19 The Lord replied[a] to them: "I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy you fully; never again will I make you an object of scorn to the nations.
20 “I will drive the northern horde far from you, pushing it into a parched and barren land; its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea, and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea. And its stench will go up; its smell will rise. "Surely he has done great things!
21 Do not be afraid, land of Judah; be glad and rejoice. Surely the Lord has done great things!
22 Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.
23 Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
25 “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm[b]—my great army that I sent among you.
26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.
27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
This is what we will see in our nation. The greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit is about to fill His full grown sons and daughters that is going to shake the very foundation of this nation. A divine turnaround has come.
God is now going to bring his mature sons and daughters to the forefront in this nation to declare the sure word of the Lord with signs and wonders following at the word that comes forth from their mouth.
Our nation is about to witness the Glory of the Lord like never before through the “any bodies” who are positioned before God rightly and have aligned themselves only to live for His will.
Let us read what the Lord says He will do. We are going to see this word fulfilled like never ever before. We have only seen the first fruit of this word, but now we are going to see the full fruit of this word in his mature sons and daughters and their offspring.
The Day of the Lord
28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
30 I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
31 The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
32 And everyone who calls, on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.
Beloved, this is a moment in History where we are about to see a DIVINE TURNAROUND. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS GOING TO FULLY MANIFEST ON THIS EARTH THROUGH HIS MATURE SONS AND DAUGHTERS. WE MUST GET READY, BE PREPARED AND HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
So what do I do?
Key Point 1: Get prepared in the natural. What does God want you to do? Do you need to stock your refrigerator up with food for yourself and others? Do you need to fill your gas tanks, or get money out of the bank?
What is God’s plan for you and your family? YOU WUST GET IT! Then follow God’s instructions and His intimations, or the “indirect way He is guiding you.” You may feel to go buy a month of food, and say that is just you or the enemy, but perhaps it is not. Maybe God is telling you to prepare not only for you but to help others. Follow the leading of the Spirit.
It is not unspiritual to prepare yourself as God directs you. It is not a lack of faith to get medicines you may need, supplies you may need. If you were to go on a trip would you not prepare and get all you need to go and come back? It is no different now, the Holy Spirit will guide you in what to plan for, what to get, where to go, and what to do with it.
Key Point 2: Be Spiritually prepared. Pray psalm 91, psalm 23 over your life and family not as a religious name it and claim it, but return to the Lord and ask him to teach you how to live and dwell in the secret place of the most high God in living reality.
Key Point 3: Repent, and ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart, and know your thoughts, for yourself, your family, your church, and region and our nation. Again, 2nd Chronicles 7:14 and Joel chapter 2 are critical for us to live and do.
Key Point 4: DO NOT FEAR OR PANIC... GOD HAS NOT GIVEN YOU A SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT OF POWER, LOVE AND A SOUND MIND. GOD SAYS, “FEAR NOT AND BE NOT AFRAID, AS I WAS WITH MOSES, SO AM I WITH YOU. IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING.”
GOD IS OUR LIFE, OUR HEALTH, OUR SECURITY, OUR PEACE, OUR PROVIDER, OUR HEALER, OUR HEALTH AND OUR PROTECTION. IF GOD BE FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US. PUT ON YOUR FULL ARMOR OF GOD AND STAND AGAINST THE WHILES OF THE ENEMY.
Key Point 5: Provers 3:4-6. Seek God’s council. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and LEAN NOT.. ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.. BUT IN ALL YOUR WAYS, ALL THAT YOU DO, ACKNOWLEDGE THE LORD, PUT HIM FIRST, SEEK HIS FACE, AND HE PROMISES.. AND HE WILL DIRECT YOUR PATH.
Key Point 6: Don’t stop giving to the Lord. Continue to give God your tithes and offerings, remember your missionaries that you have sent out. Remember, Isaac sowed in a time of famine and he reaped 100 fold.
Key Point 7: Worship, Worship, Worship and Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love one another as Jesus loves you. Be ready to be His hands and feet to those in need specially as an intercessor in our nations time of need and for the nations of the world as well.
Beloved, God is not trying to figure out what we need to do, He already knows and He wants you to know what to do every second of your life. Jeremiah 29:11 I know the thoughts and plans I have for you, thoughts for you WELL BEING AND PEACE, AND NOT EVIL, AND THAT YOU WILL HAVE HOPE IN YOUR FINAL OUTCOME!
We are not alone. We are not abandoned. God is bigger than a virus. God is bigger than them shutting every store down, or telling you to stay home. He is our God. He is God ALMIGHTY, ALL POWERFUL AND ALL SEEING. HE IS EL-RAH, THE GOD WHO SEES.
To all God is having me write today. I truly believe God wants us to prepare and take the right steps practically we need to ensure our safety and security. They may be different for each person and family because we are all in different places in this nation. It is not unspiritual to do so or a lack of faith. God has given to each person a “measure of faith.”
What God tells someone else to do may not be what God tells you to do. It is not one size fits all. God knows you, your family, and where you are, but all of us must PUT OUR FAITH IN GOD ALONE FOR HE IS OUR EVERYTHING. JUST PRAY AND OBEY!
Please listen to God, get his plans, and follow the promptings of the Spirit. It is spiritual to plan and prepare as you would to go into battle. So find God’s plan of action now and put it into place immediately and remember he may have you get things that can help others later.
May our Lord now by the Holy Spirit of the living God release His divine plans and strategies for each person, each family, each church, each ministry they need for this hour. May God release the divine blueprints, the means, the ability and resources to do it in Jesus name.
Lastly, to all 5 fold ministers and leaders, specially the “new breed” God is rising up. It is critical for us to come together to seek the face of God. Whether we do that in person, or by the internet, we must come together to hear God together as they did in the counsel of Jerusalem.
God is about to release regional blueprints, city wide blue prints, individual church blueprints and as he did in the book of Act, Separate people now to go forth into the very cities and places that need the gospel and the power of God to be seen.
The Gospel message is to repent, the Kingdom of God is at hand. The commission to the 12 was to preach the message to repent the Kingdom of God is at hand, to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out devils, for freely you have received, freely give.
God is about to release his mature sons and daughters to walk in true apostolic power with sings and wonders and words of judgments and consequences in their mouths. God is about to turn the tide in this nation and the greatest outpouring of the Spirit we have ever seen is to come.
The final harvest of kingdom souls is now ready to be reaped into the Kingdom of God and the nations of the world are now going to become the kingdoms of our God in Christ. Jesus is standing in the midst of with eyes of fire and feet like brass and he is going to bring forth this month and for the rest of the year, his wheel within a wheel people to bring His healing, power and glory to this nation.
It is critical we come together in love and unity to seek the face of God PERIOD. NO PRECONCEIVED AGENDAS ON BUILDING ANYTHING, BUT ONLY TO “BECOME EVERYTHING” GOD HAD CREATED US TO BE IN HIM.
MAY THE GOD OF ALL PEACE BE WITH US ALL. MAY THE JOY OF THE LORD BE OUR STRENGTH, AND MAY GOD COVER US WITH HIS ABUNDANT PROVISION OF PSLAM 91 NOW AND FOREVER.
MUCH LOVE AND BLESSINGS ALWAYS!
