I Prayed have prayed
Lord Jesus, show us our own sin and how we can truly demonstrate Your love to this world.

One of the IFA intercessors sent us this powerful message that resonated deeply with us. It is our privilege to share it with you.

Dear Mr. Kubal,

I’ve been receiving your emails from IFA for a few months now.

I am not famous, nor do I have a title. I am just your everyday Christian. But I have been praying and interceding as led by the Holy Spirit since 1995.

A few months ago, I had a dream that President Trump was in my living room. I wondered what he would be doing there. Then I heard the words, “Campaign Camp.” I had been praying for him but now the Holy Spirit was leading me to pray and intercede for him and America for extended times.

On November 3, I had a vision in prayer. I saw Nancy Pelosi riding on water, so happy because things were going well for her. But then up ahead President Trump was standing up and pointing for her to turn around and she had to. As I prayed, I saw Joe Biden and Kamala trying to get in. An archangel was standing in the way and blocked them for a while. But something happened and they were able to sneak into the swing states. I didn’t understand how or why.

Then, two nights ago, as I was seeking the Lord in an extended time of prayer, worship, and intercession, the Lord showed me another vision. In this vision, Jesus was holding my hand and we were walking together. I felt very close to Jesus and I felt His Love. But there was something strange. His face was covered with dirt and mud. I asked Jesus, “Why is your face covered with dirt and mud?” And He told me it is because that is how the world sees Him.

We (in general) as the Body of Christ have been standing up for what is right and fighting for what is right and that is great. But we have not been showing the world the Love of Jesus like we should. We have been prideful, judgmental, and unloving and that is how the world sees Jesus.

I will confess that I am the least of all Christians and I am guilty of what God showed me, even though it is my desire and my personality to love everyone. In these extended times of prayer, the Holy Spirit has been leading me to personal repentance.

As the vision continued, Jesus took me to a place where it was dark and I could see a prominent Democratic leader in a meeting with some other Democrats. I knew this was something that had happened in the past. And I heard her ask, “What can we do to take down the Republicans?” My feeling was that they were willing to do anything legal or illegal.

Then Jesus took me to a place where there was water – like a stream. And He washed His face. Then He showed me more things that I needed to repent of and I did, crying out to God for forgiveness. I realized that even though I have been seeking God and repenting it has been shallow. I thought about 2 Chronicles 7:14 and how we quote it and pray it. But have we truly repented? Again, I confess my own need to continuously repent.

My feeling about these visions and what the Lord showed me is that He wants us to truly repent of our own sin. And He wants us to love everyone with the Love of Jesus, as He commanded us, and to present Jesus to the world as He is – a Loving Savior.

I realize that there are many Christians who have done this all along. But maybe we need to repent more, as in the Bible days when things like this happened.

Jesus didn’t promise me that this would change the election results. I am still holding on to the message that you shared about the intercessors bringing the ballot box to President Trump. And I believe God told me that He chose President Trump to be President.

I don’t know if we should call for a national focus on prayer and repentance. That is not up to me. Like I said, I am just your everyday Christian.

But I believe God wants us to repent of our own sins and to love each other and the world with the Love of Jesus. And to show the world the Love of Jesus and His true character. Maybe that will help us get over and through some of these tumultuous waters.

There is one other thing I discerned from what the Lord showed me in prayer. In short, He wants us to humbly stand firm and not give in to discouragement. And keep pushing back the darkness in prayer, intercession and worship.

I am praying and believing for the best from God!

Thank you for your work and this incredible ministry.

God bless you!

In Christ,

Linda

I am definitely provoked through this message to continued and more serious repentance, not to get the election answer I want, but to be the leader and example God wants so that people see Jesus in me and are convicted by the presence of the Lord through me and want to find Him. Representing Christ is not about politics, but about many more of the lost finding Christ.

the Lord also impressed upon me that Pres Trump should call for National Prayer and Fasting, one he too should join. it is a different thing when someone prays and fasts for him and another when he is also praying and fasting. that impression was given me when I was in intense intercession for him while praying and fasting towards the end of October 2020.

I had decided to fast before the election and did so for 2 weeks for 1/2 the day. The first thing I noticed, is how little I had spent in heart wrenching prayer for some time now. It brought out the very things Jesus is showing us to be doing, drawing close to Him so we can hear and see Him in what He is doing. We all need to be shown by the Lord just what we personally need to see. It is so easy to see what is wrong with someone else. It felt so much better to become close to Jesus again. Dear God please help us not to be asleep, nor become deceived spiritually in Jesus name amen

As I was praying II Chron 7:14 I too felt the Lord say in Seeking His face we need to
pray Lord search my heart ! He began to show me areas of my life He wanted to cleanse.
But beyond that, after He shows me those things I must kept seeking Him to help me
lay aside those things that are hindering my walk . They will not go away automaticly.
I must realize He needs to work in my heart line upon line until I have the victory
over each thing He has shown me. Victory thru Christ !

I agree with the gentleman above re the importance of repentance. There is even a preacher here in the U.S. who is called to tell this country to repent so that this country can be blessed by people with cleansed hearts. I believe we are in a time where God is calling this nation to repent as never before.

Father God, help me to listen to Holy Spirit and repent of anything You show me. Help me respond humbly, to the election results and give You Praise. I am believing You have chosen to expose evil and reset this nation for Yourself at this time. We do not deserve Your mercy and grace, but You are extending it to us. When things turn around, help us, like Job, to “pray for our friends”, not mock them or gloat. Lord, keep us from sinning agaist You. Help us to truly be Jesus’ representatives on this earth, and to love those Jesus loves. Help us remember our own sins which Jesus paid for and delivered us from. In Jesus Name. Amen

Yes, Linda’s comments touched my heart and there are times I must repent and ask for forgiveness for my thoughts. I pray our Lord Jesus’ presence will be felt among the people of this nation and He will shine through our actions as well as our speech.
Thank you, Linda, for sharing this beautiful example of listening to the Lord. May has presence be within all of us and open the eyes of those who have been blinded by the evil one.

Come Lord Jesus!

Some of you may have already read this, but here is an excerpt:

“soft” totalitarianism is mostly administered not by the state but “by corporations and other institutions run by managerial elites.” Our social media profiles, smartphones, and smart speakers provide these managerial elites and corporations with an unprecedented ability to monitor what we say and do.
China, already an expert in hard totalitarianism, is an example of how soft totalitarianism could proceed, especially the social credit system which “determines who is allowed to buy, sell, and travel, based on their social behavior.” Here, even as more and more instruments of technological surveillance are put in place, an additional layer of enforcement comes from corporate America.

WE NEED EVERY CHRISTIAN IN GEORGIA TO GO OUT AND VOTE FOR US TO GAIN THE SENATE MAJORITY, IN ORDER TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY!!!! PLEASE VOTE FOR SENATORS KELLY LOEFFLER and DAVID PERDUE.

Let us pray, in Jesus name.

The letter from Linda totally resonates with me. The Lord has been telling me since January 2020 “Don’t get too comfortable!” Part of the message was true repentance, part was true dependence on the Lord, and the rest was learning how to reject the things of the world that make us so comfortable and to embrace those things the Lord brings that actually keep us uncomfortable to foster our reliance on Him and listening to Him. So many of His have lost their first love and have a relationship that is warm and fuzzy with no power, little growth, and keeping the Lord at a distance until we encounter trials. I am so guilty of these things and know the Lord is calling me to repent and give up my comfortable places to Him! Thank you Linda for these powerful insights and visions.

Show us where we have depended on America and this comfortable life at the expense of relationship and service to You, Oh Lord. Then help us to say ‘yes’ to You as you uncover with this great fraud all the deep darkness of power that has been brooding and causing oppression over us for generations, and not just here in America but globally. We know that Trump got in in 2016 by Your mighty hand alone, and this modern day Jehu has not yet brought down the works of our modern day Jezabel, or she herself.

Make all crooked roads straight before your anointed DJT, and bless the works of his hands as you use him to bring down the globalists. We pray for those on the left, and those who are ignorant about the corruption on the right, that You our Redeemer God Jesus would be known as the only firm foundation, and that their cry would come to you and that they would KNOW that You hear them. We pray that this ushers in great revival, Lord God. May we be as You, with justice and mercy, and love woven together in the righteousness of Christ which is ours through salvation. By the blood of Jesus and in His mighty name i pray, Amen.

Mmmmm….beautifully written words of wisdom. Thank you for sharing this. I very much come into agreement with these words. I too, and I’m sure many, many others world wide have been going down this same path of the “shallows of repentance.”

As a matter of fact, it was just 2 days ago that God showed me some deeper issues of repentance I need to address.

Lord, thank You for the spilled blood of Your Begotten Son that washes us clean and Your unending love and mercy for each of us. In the name of Jesus, we say Amen!

LORD JESUS FORGIVE US for only you have we sinned against and the father and done evil in your site that you are indeed right when you judge and when you speak. Yet, you are forever making interceding for us in the throne room of heaven and I want you to know we appreciate it. In you oh LORD there is forgiveness of sins that you may be feared. Thank you for reminding us to humble ourselves through you that you make lift us up in due season You told us in your word that love covers a multitude of sins. Let’s us become an outpouring of your love to this generation that others may see your good works and glorify your name. We thank you for using Linda and others to remind us of our core values as citizens of heaven to walk in humility, in repentance and in love leaving critical judgment to you.

This is not about Republican and Democrats, its about Satan last stand in our country and world. the swamp tried for four years to stop our President, even Republicans were part of this coup. they failed because this is God’s finest hour. Trump will get four more years, because this will be the greatest evangelistic revival where the world is going to know Jesus and accept him as Lord and Savior by the millions before the tribulation starts. Biden is a pawn, sick and confused, but it’s the media controlling and the Democrats, but its already won by our President even if he is not sure.God is real and so is Satan, but everything is secondary to God. Just do not fear or doubt, what is happening had to happened so that the swamp could be uncovered, or it would happen again and again. God in his wisdom allowed it to happen and so we will retain our President and our country will be the greatest country in the world and Israel will prosper. thank you Jesus and Heavenly Father God. Amen.

Thank you God for Linda’s courage, conviction and witness.

I am sorry Jesus for MY sins: especially for not saying or doing what would honor You and The Holy Spirit.

I have cursed, despaired in spite of your grace, and shirked my tasks of faith in Christ

Forgive me Lord especially of my pride, the 1st sin and the millstone around my neck. Through your most Holy Blood wash me clean of my Sins, help me to sin no more, and lead me to forgive others.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen! We need to feel sorrow for our own sin and the sin of our nation. 60 some million babies killed in our nation alone, not to mention those around the world. Scriptures say it’s godly sorrow that leads to repentance. We need to see and feel Abba’s heart. And then let our hearts feel what He feels and repent of it. Just my thoughts.

Amen and amen. A few weeks ago when I was praying about the election, I sensed the Lord asking me if I pray this fervently for revival and the salvation of lost souls. The answer, of course, is no, I don’t pray for lost souls with the same fervor. I was also convicted that I don’t work as hard to stop abortion as I was working for the election. I agree that we frequently gloss over the humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways parts of the 2 Chr. 7:14 and skip right to the pray part where we bring our requests. I was also convicted that the reason I am so concerned about this election is that it may mean difficult situations and injustice for ME. I’m not really concerned for others or I would be sharing the gospel more actively.
About a week later as I continued to think about what the Lord had said and praying for revival, I had the thought that perhaps we would pray and witness MORE if Joe Biden was the president.
May it not come to that! May we pray for revival and for the lost! May we not become complacent if President Trump is elected to a second term. May we truly repent!

I found this a fantastic sharing and completely confirm it. I too have interceded for this country, especially since the 2000’s, and what I had heard in prayer back then is that our nation will be saved; God has a plan. I can by no means assume that however His plan is realized will be in the nice, easy, steady, rosy way I would like to see. Christ’s own mother was not spared from the horror of His death on the Cross, and He has warned us that we will be hated and persecuted.

But the Holy Trinity dwells in us (Jn 14) and we are to reflect Him to the world, so that when they see us, they see Jesus [in us]. We are the only Gospel most will ever read.

May the Lord crush the plans of the wicked. May those who grasp at power for evil and injustice have it slip out of their hands. But in any case, may I use my talents and gifts to make others want to turn to Jesus.

I am so sorry Lord. I have only thought of myself and what will possibly happen to this country if he takes over. Emotions are strong right now. I thank you for bringing to my attention that I need to pray for them more than just for myself. I need to pray that the Lord take control of my emotions and my thoughts and lead me into a better path of action. I will Lord pray that you show me the way. You go before me and behind me. You protect us always as long as I am coming to you and not running on my own. I have prayed and repented but must be missing something. Lord teach me the way to repent for what you want. I don’t mingle with a lot of people. Not very social but I do give scripture cards when I go out and I always treat people with love and respect and I am pleasant when I talk to them. I bless them when I leave. I also am a senior so I wear a lot of tee-shirts with messages that are of God. I don’t have a lot of touch with others just in stores and I do my best to spread the Word. Right now I ask you Lord to help me to see what I need to do to help to take authority over the things that are not of you. Show me the repentance I need to give attention to. I love you and I love my country. Teach me Lord.

Blessings to you my fellow saints. Be encouraged for God is alive and well and working through you His people. Did He not say fear not for I am with you? This has been and is still a great time of trial for the saints of God. Yes, he is speaking to us of repentance for does He not say Revival starts in the house of God? The house of God is in born again people So you are all right to repent and then as instructed in Timothy “stir up the gifts of God in you” Let us use the gifts given to us to sound the alarm that as eternal beings we should know that HELL is real. Those who do not know and those who have been deceived to believe words other than God’s Holy Word are going to end up in Hell. A place no one wants to be. It is total separation from God and as God is love, it means total separation from love, not a place we want to be or that we want any of our friends of even our worst enemies to end up. So fight on Watchmen, pray for their eternal souls for Jesus is coming again and then there will be an accounting for sin both of the flesh and of the Spirit. God is able to deliver us so let us lay our hands to the plow and bring souls into the Kingdom.

Thank you for sharing and God Bless you, my sister in the Lord! Please be assured that you are NOT A NOBODY TO THE LORD! He has always used ordinary people to do extraordinary exploits, and you are one of them! Intercession is hard work, and it is a calling from the Lord to sit at His feet, weep between the porch and the altar, stand in the gap for those who cannot–or will not–pray, and yes–to repent, for ourselves, for others, and for our nation. You are SOMEBODY to God, and to me–a fellow front-line prayer warrior and an encouragement for us all to keep standing in the gap, weeping, repenting, and taking the fight to the enemy until together in the Name of the Lord we have felled the giant of satanic socialism and dirty politics in America so that righteousness and justice will stand in the land and our President Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated in January for his rightfully-won second term in office.
Your words are a powerful reminder that if “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

The Lord has shown me the same thing, including the same sin in my life. He wants us to be vessels of His glory, but we can’t do that with sin in our lives. We must review our days before the Lord and cleanse our hearts of sin daily until we do this throughout the day. Then God will use us to do the “greater things” that Jesus said we would do in the gospels. The day has come for us to step into all that God has for us and is calling us to, but we can’t do it with sin in our hearts including hidden sin. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal that to us. Thank you for your entry, Linda.

CHURCH, ARISE!
In the stillness, quiet stillness,
Breathe in G-D’s holy peace divine.
Soak in His ever-loving presence.
Feast on His holy bread and wine.
Abide in Him. Be one with Him.
His promises are ever true.
Embrace the fragrance of His love,
Allowing it to freely flow through you
Towards the hurting and the wounded,
Towards the prisoners bound in chains,
Towards the widows and the orphans,
Towards the mentally insane,
Towards all people, towards all colors:
Red and yellow, black and white.
For the glory of G-D’s Kingdom,
Church, arise and shine your light!

I agree with Linda, I also believe fasting is very important too. Taking communion in our homes and corporately. This is one of subtle ways the devil gets us to sin. We justify our anger about resentment towards the left. We really need to understand Ephesians 6:12. We can quote it, but do we really understand it. Our actions and words say differently. I too struggle that’s why I don’t want to hear what n man think. I want to stay focused on what God is doing.

Yes, the same thing has been happening to me, repenting more. Actually for about a month now I read Psalms 139 out loud every day Believing God to activate the words. At the end it says “show me if there’s any wicked way in me.” I started reading Psalms 139 because I came down with the Covid virus and I was telling my body and prophesying to my body that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that the virus couldn’t stay. After two weeks of being sick one day the Lord did show me something that I needed to repent of. This weakness of mine kept going through my mind for several days and I said out loud what is going on why am I doing that? And then all of a sudden it dawned on me oh yeah he was showing me my sin. So I know that praying Psalms 139 out loud really did do something in the spirit and I was so joyful and readily repented. I also noticed that when I do sin I am so much more Remorseful.Praise Jesus. He knows how to take care of us.

Heavenly Father, Please forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have sinned against us. Lyrics from Cleanse Me a hymn.

Search me o God and know my heart today. Try me O Savior, know my thoughts I pray. See if there be some wicked way in me. Cleanse me from every sin and set me free.

I praise thee Lord, for cleansing me from sin. Fulfill thy word and make me pure within. Fill me with fire where once I burned with shame. Grant my desire to magnify your name.

Lord, take my life and make it wholly thine. Fill my poor heart with thy great love divine. Take all my will, my passion, self, and pride. I now surrender; Lord in me abide.

O Holy Ghost revival comes from Thee. Send a revival, start the work in me. Thy Word declares Thou wilt supply our need. For blessings now O Lord I humbly plead.

This made me think of John 13:35
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another “. We need to be mindful that we must love our Christian friends, all those from other denominations because what we have in common is Jesus Christ.
I pray: God forgive our arrogance and pride, we humble ourself to you and ask forgiveness. Reveal your will and desire to us. Teach us your way, so that our land will have peace.
You be glorified, unroll the present darkness, let your light break forth, let your enemy be scattered, let the righteous be glad.

Thank You Father God for Jesus. I am sorry that my sadness of so many fraudulent in the election process that made me sick in the stomach. I forgot Who You Are for a few days. I can’t pray and read Your words for a few days. Please forgive me. Have mercy on me.
Father, Your way is perfect and able to reach a global repentance and unity in our country thru the process that You’re putting in place.

Last night God let me to listen to Isaiah 58 – Help us to always have a true worship not a worship that have intent for selfishness.
Now I’m reading Linda’s letter which is so uplifting. Thank You Father for Your breadcrumbs along the way to grow my faith.

Father-God, please be with President Trump. I felt so bad for him during his speech on Nov. 3. He worked so hard, harder than any President during my lifetime yet defeated by FRAUD. Please give him strength and understanding that You Are with him all the way. You chose him and VP Pence to lead this country to its origin as a Nation under God Almighty.

Please help .. Father help Holy Spirit that we, the Church able to create a loving others community that can lead the next generations, our children, grand children to a nation who are loving their God and others as themselves.

Thank You Father. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

True we all need to repentfrom deep within for anger, frustration, even hatred of the other party.
Lord forgive us. Help us truly to be your body of Righteousness and holiness extending your Agape love to all. Can be done only through the Holy Spirit and our total surrender to Him
God bless you all

Linda, yes. I agree that my repentance seems shallow. I also believe we who are representing Jesus are dirtied by our mean words and attitudes, thus affecting His reputation to the world.
Thank you for praying, listening and sharing. I am encouraged to dive deeper in repentance.
God bless you, Kitty

Thank you Linda,
This message resonates with me. I also have been praying with IFA prayer’s guides. I followed the 7 days of repentance and was led to a personal repentance. I believe that God wants everyone of us to come to this personal conviction of the need for repentance. So I have been praying that the Lord continues, in His mercy, the Holy Spirit convicts each one who is seeking Him sincerely and wants to honor Him and obey His commands.

Yes most definitely. Also, I believe God is saying do not look to men, look to me. I’m still in charge here on earth so do not be discouraged. The joy of the Lord is your strength. We must trust in God no matter who sits in the Whitehouse.

Yes, this letter definitely resonates with me! I have been praying and pleading the Blood of Christ over this entire nation! I felt like we had all taken a body blow when Biden was announced the winner. That did not sit well with my spirit that believes he is not God’s will for this nation! I’ve been reading His Word and asking Him to speak to me concerning all this. What I have read in the apostle John’s writings and Peter’s writings is that we are, above all, to demonstrate the Love of God, not just to those with whom we agree, but to those who are steeped in hatred and deception! We also need to be careful that the same hatred we see coming from the left, does not creep into our spirits! That attitude places us in the very same enemy’s camp that so many on the left are prisoners to. Despondency, hopelessness, and anger are waiting at the door to engulf us! We MUST keep our eyes on Jesus lest we sink into the same trap Peter fell into when he got his eyes off of Him! He looked at the wind and the waves around him and common sense told him walking on water was an impossibility! Fixing this country and the political mess it’s in may be an impossibility for us as humans, but remember, “Nothing is impossible to God!” HE is the KING of this nation! HE is in control. He established this country. He has blessed this land. He knows and watches everything that is going on. The cheaters and corruption can’t get past Him! We’ve asked, now it’s time to STAND firm in our trust in Him and PRAISE, PRAISE, PRAISE, our God and our Redeemer! The devil is a sly serpent, but God is greater! IN GOD WE TRUST!

As I am asking the Lord to search me and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me and lead me in the way everlasting—as written in Psalm 139;23-24; I’m reminded of 1 John 2;16, which speaks of these 3 things: the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life.
Reading and meditating on this verse in a variety of different versions of the Bible is very enlightening.
It makes for a deeper searching and repentance………

It came to me a little while ago God lets people have their way, in this case Biden being pres. elect. Being a Trumpster i know the dread of this. They’ve planned it for along time. God has another plan. He’s planned it a much longer time ago.
Looks like we’re going into the swampy mess with those who want it. We’re to be a light & salt church. Time to get outta the pew, from behind the device, Zoom bible studies & practice what we know to be truth in love, the Word of God. Silent no more

Thankyou Linda for forwarding your powerful message and thanks be to God to IFA posting it to share with the community. Reading the part of your vision regarding Jesus’ face being covered with dirt and mud, imparted a strong visual, painful and constant reminder of how the secular world views Jesus and Christians around the globe with extreme vitriol. “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20. We are living in such a time today and everyone does what they think is right in their own eyes as stated in the book of Judges. Oh, how this must grieve a loving God. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

But Jesus said, “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.” John 15:18. And in Corinthians 4:3-4 Paul said “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

Yet on the cross Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34. He also gave us the following commandments. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40. Jesus also said “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Matthew 5:44.

As believers and disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are called to be salt and light in a fallen world. This is not always easy due to our own sinful nature. Ephesians 6:12 states “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, rulers of darkness of this world and the spiritual wickedness in high places.” If we are to show the love of Christ to the world, we must walk in love ourselves. Many captives are held in bondage due to open doors such as unforgiveness, unbelief, etc; giving evil spirits legal rights to torment a person’s body, soul and even spirit, if the person is not a believer in Christ.

As Christians, we were purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ, justified and sanctified by His precious blood and are continually being molded into the likeness of Christ. “We are to walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.” Ephesians 5:2. “Have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; have mercy on others but with fear, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.” Jude 1:22-23

Lord Father Yahweh send your Holy Spirit to convict us of our sin! We believe that you died & rose again for this very reason! We pray that President Trump be our President for another 4 years if that be your will father. We pray that any evil, treachery, or deception to our nation & families all across America be revealed & justice be accomplished swiftly! Anything that offends you or separates us from your Love, protection, & intercession we repent of. We know it is true “all things are accomplished through you Yahweh”! I pray this in the name & power of Jesus! In God we trust!

Great article and very true. Judgment will start in the house of the Lord, God’s warmest audience. This is why He really wants us to humbly bow before Him in repentance. This letter resonates with me surely as I am also just an everyday Christian, but God has been teaching me more as I take a closer walk with Him. It has really helped me; I need to repent pretty much every day also.

Precious Heavenly Father,
Please forgive this nation for the spilling of innocent blood thru abortion, forgive us for our almost unbelievable complacency, forgive us for our lies, deceit, and immorality. But most of all, forgive us for not loving You. It seems we have forgotten You. Please convict our hearts Lord. We LOVE You and we need You. Please, although we do not deserve it, protect this nation from those who seek to destroy her.
Praying in the name above all names, Jesus.
Amen.

I asked the Lord about 2 Chronicles 7:14 and the phrase turn from their wicked ways – that’s a pretty strong rebuke for Christians. He showed me that “wicked ways” are any time we are not acting like Jesus. Any time I treat someone unkindly, respond with edgy attitude, allow hatred or a judgemental spirit to creep into my thoughts, etc. I can repent. This has helped me a lot. I need to repent pretty much every day.

Maris Spiers
November 12, 2020

Hi Linda, I found your post to be interesting and encouraging. Yes, the Father God does want President Trump to have a second term in office.

One of the things I noted in your post I wanted to encourage you about. You said you had a vision of mud on the face of Jesus. Linda, this would not happen. The more you know Jesus; the more you know this would never happen. He is Almighty God! When you read through the Old Testament you see alot of people that made choices to follow other gods rather than the Father God; His wrath in some cases was slow in coming against them and in others it was not it was very quick. But, no matter what they did nothing of their actions had any effect on HIm except that He wants a strong leader for His people who will point them toward Him! That is very important to Him

His first and foremost commandment to us is: “You shall love the the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and with all your soul and with all your strength, your entire being.” (Deuteronomy 9: 5). “And He replied, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10: 27).

What the Father God is saying here is to Put Him First! You will never see mud on His face! He is the Almighty God the King of the Universe and the Lord of the Earth! What He is wanting is for us to love Him first, desire Him first, follow Him first above all else. He knows the heart of every man, woman and child regardless of their age. The Word of God tells us in Ephesians this: “from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, God – the first and ultimate Father.” (Ephesians 3: 15).

Your heart is in the right place when you truly want to seek the Face of Jesus and He is always faithful – He will allow you to find Him! You will see HIm! There is no mud on the face of Jesus! There is no corruption what so ever!

“This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out His commands. In fact, that is love for God: to keep His commands. And His commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world That is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5: 2 – 4).

And to the retired policeman who posted – Thank you for your service to our Great Nation! Your discernment is priceless. If you would like you can take the years of experience you have had with the police force and turn it over to the Father God! He will give it back to you in an amazing way! Better than you can ever imagine! Being a policeman is a tough job – there is no doubt about that – Thank you again!

It is the Father God that is incredible. He is an Amazing God!

God Bless You,

I totally agree with Linda. On March 15, 2020 I felt led as I had my daily quiet time with the Lord in the Word, to make a list of the sins of our country. I’m sure if you took the time to do it you could come up with your own list and it would be similar to mine. I prayed for our country at that time and asked for conviction from Him for the sins of America.
Then on July 23, 2020, as I had my daily quiet time with the Lord in the Word, I felt led to make of list of the sins of the Body of Christ. To my surprise and shock the lists did not differ very much. Some that I listed were: asleep, greed, abortion, hate, fear, worry, self-centeredness, self-righteousness, no compassion, deception, pride, anger, compromise, complacency, smugness, self-dependance, and prayerlessness.
On that day I also listed my sins before the Lord and repented and asked for forgiveness and cleansing.
On August 15, 2020 during my daily quiet time with the Lord in the Word, I felt led to list sins of our leaders in the Body of Christ. Most of these ended up being things the Pastors and leaders were NOT doing: not preaching the Word, not promoting prayer, not promoting worship, not promoting missions, not promoting Bible study, not promoting quiet times. One more…quenching the Holy Spirit.
I have continued since making these lists, to confess them before the Lord and ask His conviction on us, the Body of Christ.
I need the Lord to convict me…to go deeper in me. I truly want to be rid of these sins, but I am not there yet. Are you?

Yes, it resonates with me, absolutely. 2 Chronicles 7:14 calls for national prayer which includes firstly, Repentance. I believe God will have the last word in this election no matter where it sways. But God is allowing a waiting period while He brings things down as He exposes them. God bless.

I believe this word rings true. The Lord allows trials and pressure to refine us. If we won easily, would we quickly go back to business as usual? If this election should not go the way we have prayed, what will I do? Will I love the Lord even more?

This headline prayer dovetails with the one citing Thomas Paine who wrote “these are the times that try men’s souls.” Let’s look into our hearts and ask, “Am I a summer Christian and a sunshine patriot?”

Thank you, Lord, most recently for 11-11Jesus that gave much of the time to praise and repentance. No matter what You allow to happen, we ask that you would give the body of Christ in the USA supernatural love and mercy. We know we don’t have it in ourselves, but we need it.

I pray that the body of Christ will humble themselves & repent. Showing love toward those who want to continue to shove ungodly values down our throats & push their socialist agenda on us as a nation makes it hard to love them, to smile and forgive them. I am the most guilty. But, Jesus hung in total, incomprehensible pain & agony on a cross & said, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do”… forgive them because they have no idea or comprehension of just how horrible they are? Those who are ungodly are in a darkness. We must pray for them. And, personally, that is the hardest lesson for me.

November 12, 2020

I agree with Linda regarding repentance, genuine brokenness of our own personal sins of pride and lack of submission to the sovereignty of God who is in control of everything. Regardless of who is elected, are we willing to honor the authority as commanded by God in Romans 13 since all authorities are ordained by God? Or are we going to rebel? Are we from our hearts truly willing to forgive and pray for all authorities whether they are doing evil or not and say, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Let us ask God to truly search our hearts for any wrong or evil thoughts or intentions. Father, I pray, pour out the Spirit of Repentance and humility upon your people.

    If we aren’t living in Peace and with our rights to free assembly and freedom of religion, we NEED to rebel as our founding fathers did against oppression.
    As Christians, we are many members of one body, we are each called to a different role. And I would not have my immune system make peace with the enemy! I want it to be strong and courageous, and true to its mission!

Praise God for His heart in you Linda to intercede for our nation through the years!

‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you’

‘If my people who are called by My name, HUMBLE themselves, PRAY and SEEK My face….. Humility comes before repentance. Learning the true fear of the Lord has led me this year to humble myself daily before the Lord asking for His Spirit’s help to walk His ways.

God has blessed us individually and as a nation. It is so easy for pride to creep in. Let’s truly humble ourselves before the Lord daily and as a nation! Seek His face, His heart, His will and not always His hand of blessings. Whatever we do in secret, whether good or bad will be revealed in public. Luke 8:17

11
Carolyn Lilley
November 12, 2020

I agree wholeheartedly with this message from Linda! We individually need to humble ourselves and pray and seek the Lord, listen to Him and repent, love genuinely! I had a dream several months ago, where President Trump and I were on a stage, and he handed me a paper and asked me to keep it safe and that he would be back to get it. I was so concerned that I would lose it, and I feared I had. Then, I woke up. I think that the paper was the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. I think it meant to me that we individually must be diligent in defending it and keeping it. Voting for those who will understand it and defend it. Teaching our history so that following generations will know what it says and means. This is so vital, as it is extremely important that we know and teach thme God’s Word, which is the basis for our founding documents!

God has been showing me as well that we do not love enough. Most of my prayers have been that we need to love Jesus above everythin. which will lead to loving each other the way we should, and that love will allow us to be the salt and light to the world, that Jesus wants us to be.

Debbie G
November 12, 2020

I’ve had it on my heart for several weeks that the days ahead will be very difficult for the Church regardless how the election goes because the way we have portrayed Christ to the world. I believe their hatred for us is warranted because we (meaning those who call themselves Christian) have not demonstrated His love and power to heal. But rather we have been judgmental and divisive as we point to all that’s wrong in the world. Not all have done this but overwhelmingly we aren’t carrying a true burden for the lost. I know I have had to cry out to the Lord for a this burden because it is lacking in my own life. Praise God for Holy Spirit conviction. It is so desperately needed in all our lives. Jesus help us carry your burden for the lost and dying. Let us be messengers of mercy and healing. Amen

Love this, I have been prompted about the same since March. We have asked TThe lord to heal our lanss and to save us but we do not repent. He constanly brought to mind 2 Chronicles 15, I belive that if the President or Vicepresident received this it will be a blessing. Also, they could do as Churchill did, call a time for prayer and fasting and asking for TRUE conviction and repentance not only America will respond but the world will unite with us. I have so many people intentionally praying for this nation, this will be POWERFUL!!

    Carol,
    I too have become hardened to the Left. But the Lord tells us to pray for our enemies, and I have been purposefully praying for the Democrat leaders of late, especially for Joe Biden. He claims to be a believer and wouldn’t it be a wondrous thing if he came to Christ, not only for himself, but came out openly praising Christ in front of the entire nation, admitting the fraud that is taking place? What a powerful testimony that would be if Joe openly exposed the satanic plans of the Left to bring down our beloved country? Praise The Lord Jesus for His grace and mercy. Thank you for your post.

Please send this message to all you can and also send it to President Trump. He hasn’t been seen much, lately but if he would address the nation with the above ideas and messages, asking all his 70 million supporters and more, to pray vs. rally, but maybe pray outside for all the world and communities to see, then God will hear our prayers and heal our land, and protect our President.
Please, please, get the message out to continually pray. Our Catholic churches aren’t even asking or modeling us to pray for the President. We have to pray for our clergy and churches. God will then hear us and know we are being true to our faith and love for HIM. Pray!! Please!!

Interesting that just yesterday a fellow intercessor with whom I meet regularly was saying the exact same thing. She mentioned that we have had times of repentance but the deep repentance of our own sins is important.

Long before the plague of Covid-19 the Lord was stressing to me over and over again: No Revival without Repentance! When Covid-19 hit I worried that we would still not really repent. We didn’t. Now we are in a much deeper crisis and I see much more repentance. I repented of thinking once Trump was elected in 2016, that we had “won” and I didn’t need to intercede day and night like my very life depended on it. I repented of my spiritual laziness that if I was saved, I didn’t need to intercede and travail like I wasn’t saved for the lost of the world. I was safe and wasn’t it too bad for the rest of them. Such evil indifference in my heart. The Lord and the Lord Jesus Christ have been stripping away all my grave clothes so that I am raw and naked and totally dependent on Them for everything. I simply ask Holy Spirit every day, “How do You want me to pray, intercede, worship, praise, travail today? The will of the Father, not mine. Amen.”

    November 12, 2020

    Amen! I too see God calling us to a deeper love and a deeper faith in Him. On a daily basis at work, I want to just avoid the fellow Christians that I know are not standing for Biblical truths and restoration of our freedoms and healing for America. I get convicted and God, in His grace, is working in my heart as well. Love your enemies is taking on a much deeper dimension. My heart wants to have the love Jesus showed at the cross……….Lord have mercy on us. Help us to decrease so that You can increase……in this dark, dark time – help us be the light we are called to be!

Yes, personal repentance is key to a pure heart. How about now we repent of the divisions in the body of Christ. Five hundred or so years ago a divorce happened in the Body of Christ. This was not Gods will, if it was, Jesus would not have prayed the prayer in John 17:20: “Father I pray that all of them will be one, just as you are in me and I am in you. I want them also to be in us. Then the world will believe that you have sent me.” Thank Martin Luther for bringing the gospel to the forefront, but his bitterroot judgement on the church fathers has now led to 40,000 + denominations in the world! Most not agreeing on doctrines or sometimes even preaching a false gospel. This is ugly and yes muddies up Christ’s image in the world. We need to stop doing our own things and come together as Catholics and Protestants/Evangelicals and dialogue with one another. There needs to be repentance and forgiveness to one another. Deep repentance to heal wounds that have festered for centuries. We need to become visibly one, with one heart and mind and affection toward one another. This will change the world, the devil knows this. That is why he is working so hard to keep us divided, and we are letting him do it if we are not working towards true visible unity. The world is mimicking what it sees in the church. And If we aren’t pursuing the unity that Jesus prayed for, are we not still in sin? “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If the Body of Christ is unable to love all its own members (love its own body or self) then how are we really able to love the world?

Read the repenting prayer Daniel prayed for his nation (Dan 9) and the Lord said in Ezekiel 14 that Daniel was one of three people who could enjoy his salvation based on his own righteousness. Yes, I examine myself before I judge my neighbor. Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate Church, for Your own sake, because we bear Your name.

I had a dream this morning that there were “attackers” on the church grounds trying to stab people and cut them with knives and screwdrivers. Someone yelled for the church body to “escort” them off the property, surrounding them and pushing them back by force. Suddenly I felt the strategy shift in my spirit and I remember yelling “tell them we love them! The devil hates that! That’s how we defeat the demons inside them.” I wonder if God wants us to do more battling in love as opposed to just standing on our rights. Kill them with kindness. Share the love of Christ in a more focused, direct, and purposeful way to defeat the demons operating in them and through them. Just a thought.

    Yes and Amen
    Love your enemies and pray for them
    Pray Aaronic Blessing over them all!
    That is what I’ve been doing to every person who comes against me as an enemy. God has delivered me in every instance.
    I pray along these lines. Everyone should pray in earnest and in individual terms. God just wants us to be ourselves when we speak to Him. I’ve even told The Lord, I don’t want to pray a blessing over this person “…I just want to sit in anger and judgment of them out of my own self righteousness…but nonetheless…at Your Word Jesus Matthew 5: ” I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven…”
    Father, Bless ______ and Keep ________
    Father, make Your face to shine upon _______ and be Gracious to ________ with Your Grace and Mercy
    Father, lift up Your Countenance upon _______ and give them peace…give ______ exactly what they are truly needing from You…Your Perfect Shalom that they’d have nothing missing and nothing broken within themselves for they may be drawn to Yourself through Christ Jesus for the love healing and peace salvation…for ______wholeness that can only come by You through Christ The Lord Jesus. In His Name I ask on behalf of _______ who seems to be my enemy. Amen
    I may have to do it a few times maybe only once but the barb is always removed and I get free from the sin of hatred towards any of my fellow human being, God’s precious mankind. God’s WAYS ARE HIGH WAYS!! Take the High Way…it will get you there quicker 😉
    God Bless
    We are all practicing God’s Ways.
    ❤️U in Christ

My prayer time this morning seemed to come in agreement:
INTERCESSORY PRAYER (11-12-20 6:39 am)

Lord, it is evil that we have to overcome. How do we do that?

John 8:32
And you will know the truth,
And the truth will set you free.

Lord, I know truth and I don’t feel so free

John 14:6
Jesus told him, “I am the way,
The truth, and the life. No one
Can come to the Father except
Through me.

John 4:24
For God is Spirit, so those who worship him
Must worship in spirit and in truth

Ephesians 6:14
Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth
And the body armor of God’s righteousness.

So Lord, how do we walk and have hope in this evil world we are facing?

2 Corinthians 13:8
For we cannot oppose the truth,
But must always stand for the truth.

1 Corinthians 13:6
It does not rejoice about injustice but
Rejoices whenever the truth wins out

John 17:17
Make them holy by your truth;
Teach them your word, which is truth

2 Timothy 2:25
Gently instruct those who oppose the truth.
Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts
And they will learn the truth.

Lord please help us who belong to You. It is difficult living among the unregenerate. Especially Lord when the world has decided openly and aggressively to be in the face of all who are trying to live peaceable and quiet lives. Didn’t you say that was why we were to pray for those in leadership?

I Timothy 2:1-3
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them;
Intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.
Pray this way for kings and all who are
In authority so that we can live peaceful
And quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
This is good and pleases God our Savior,
Who wants everyone to be save to
Understand the truth.

This morning Lord I pray for President Trump and his administration. I pray that You might bless them and lead them and give them divine knowledge in this battle against evil. I pray for all those who know You and are of the Truth. May your hand be upon them in the midst of this epic struggle to reclaim America.
Lord, if

1 Timothy 2:5
For, there is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile
God and Humanity-the man Christ Jesus. He gave His
Life to purchase freedom for everyone

is true, then those who are working against people of faith are in need of truth also and when that which is part of the establishment of this nation –religious liberty- is wiped out how then will they be reconciled?

Lord, the church has failed miserably. Not just the church as a whole, but individually we have failed. I have failed. I allow the things of this world to overwhelm me so much I don’t represent you well.

Lord, America does not deserve another chance. I know it. I don’t deserve it. But will You give us a chance? A chance to be people worthy of You.

Psalms 85:11
Truth springs up from the earth, and
Righteousness smiles down from heaven.

Lord, Help America. Not just to be another nation but a nation that gives you glory and a nation that you can smile down upon.

In Jesus name. May it be so!

Thank you, Mads. This very much resonated with me. I have these needs in my own life, and welcome His loving hand of correction. “ Give me eyes to see and ears to hear, please Lord. Let your kindness lead me to repentance”.

I appreciate very much your “ Everyday Christian” message to us all.
God bless you.

Resonates here too!

Was studying this verse this morning… “We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on
Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” 2 CORINTHIANS 5:20. How can I do this when I’ve dirtied my Christ by my thoughts and actions? It’s me who needs to be reconciled with Christ….then others can see Him in and through me.

Thank you Linda…was a total confirmation of what is needed in my life and based on the many comments, others lives too.

Thank You, Father, for giving us eyes to see our own sin and for Your grace and mercy to forgive. Now we ask for the healing of our land. In Jesus mighty and strong name, Amen.

Hi Linda,

I am so moved by your humility and encouraged by your dreams. I have found myself in deep times of repentance and examining myself before the Lord. I also believe that this should be key in every believer life, especially now in these tumultuous times. I completely agree that we need to show the love of Jesus to everyone. Not just those we agree with politically. That is something the Lord has laid on my heart as well. I like you am an ordinary christian with an extraordinary God.
God bless you for your faithfulness to share your dreams and encourage the body of Christ. We need it!

I am repenting! My spiritual laziness, my lack of true reverence, my insidious pride, my lack of passion for the great commission, my impatience….
In prayer, Lord IF You are willing take this cup away from the United States of America and release our government and our citizens from the stronghold of a corrupt elite and their election fraud: media empires, corrupt politicians, and godless corporations, through the power of the Lifeblood of Jesus, precious and holy and pure.

Jesus, Great High Priest. I thank you for your ministry to us your children and to those who are yet to know you. Thank you for your Sin offering That you died on the cross for us so that we might be saved and forgiven by God of our many sins and transgressions. I humbly ask that you forgive me for all my sins and rebellious ways. My apathy and weakness in prayer. You are my savior and friend and I am eternally greatful for your love for me. Lord may your children here in the United States Come back to the altar of repentance and prayer. We need you Jesus, help us to share your beautiful loving gift of salvation with others. We praise and honor you Lord Jesus our King!

We truly do need repentance from not being lovesick for HIM!!! We have been consumed with keeping our lifestyle of ease, We are to set out affections completely and totally on HIM, having HIS heart for the lost and dying world. This election has been hanging in the balance and will tip either way, depending on how we repent. I am the first that would see this need to go deeper into HIS love and mercy for the lost, even the media, both parties, HE love them all. We are to pray with that love, even for those who hate us.

Or utter anything hastily before the lord

Patsy Butler
November 12, 2020

Thank you Linda, I too am no one of importance as far as the world goes, but to Jesus all of creation is valuable to HIM as He has a plan for all of us. My heart has been burdened for the church and yesterday during my time of prayer and seeking I felt the urge to write and I didn’t stop until the thoughts did. First, concerning the “Great Falling Away”; what was revealed to me; You can’t fall away from something you never had… this is talking about the true body of Christ. This then led me to the following… Stay with me. Jesus died, went through death; then was resurrected and death was defeated. This is preached today. If we “believe” that Jesus died for our sins then we will also defeat death.. for those who do not believe they will not be raised from their corruptible body, they will remain in the ground until the second death. They will not be given a new body; they are still in their sins. The second death will be an eternity in Hell and they will be able to feel, see, and all of their senses will not be dulled. See Luke 16. They will have an eternal hunger, pain, thirst and much more. They will burn but never be consumed. Sin separated us from God; if we remain unrepentant we will face the second death. This is not popular to preach; you will not hear this in most pulpits, but it does need to be preached. The body of Christ needs to get back to its first Love; we are, for the most part, far far from this Love of Christ. We have a choice to make; either we “Believe” and live like we believe or we choose to not believe. It is our choice while on earth. We must tell our lost brothers and sisters, whether they believe or not that if their name is not written in “The Book of Life” then they will spend and eternity in Hell. Hell is not a nice place, like many unbelievers believe. Satan represents sin and evil; God represents forgiveness and good. It is our choice who we will follow; one leads to a Heavenly Kingdom, a narrow road, the other leads to Hell and the lake of fire and an eternity without God. Most people really are not aware of the real “Hell”; they have been deceived by the “Great Deceiver”, Satan. The bigger percentage of “Christians” do not even read the word and most only pray as needed in their life. We are missing the big picture of what it means to serve Christ. Our pastors over the last 60 – 70 years or more have softened the message; some due to being criticised, others because people do not want to hear the truth of eternity and say it is a scare tactic. I know this is hard to read, but I do believe it is a message to believers; we are the ones that have been given the directive to spread “The Good News”. The Good News includes the entire message as stated from Genesis to Revelation; if we do not believe “In the beginning…” we will not believe the rest. May God help me to have a burdened heart for the many that are choosing the broad road as described in Matthew chapter 7:13-14. May God show us how to reach the millions upon millions who are lost.

I have to confess that as most of you reading this, I am an upright person and sometimes find it hard to know how to repent. But there are two areas where God needs to do a work of repentance in my life as I ponder this word this morning. The first is unbelief and fear that God will deliver us from this nightmare. Second, I confess that I have only anger in my heart toward those who brought us to this point. Lord Jesus only you can supernaturally give me and all of us who are resisting this darkness your heart toward our enemies. Please do this work in us. We confess our unbelief and our anger and lack of love toward those who oppose us. Lord have mercy!

    Maureen
    November 12, 2020

    hi Susie,
    I feel the same but God spoke to me this morning and I wrote the following….hope it helps.

    I fully agree that we must repent individually and for our nation.
    However as I read this article I heard…’remember the money changers’.

    In Mark 11 Jesus was very angry when he came to the temple…furious with righteous anger. Jesus was angry that people were selling things in the holy temple.
    He said they had turned the sacred place into a den of robbers, and HE EVICTED THEM.

    We know that God loves all his children with all their sins and warts. But Jesus gives us this example that even Jesus, Emmanual, Lord and Savior, of the world, had righteous anger. And clearly, this is not a sin, since Jesus had no sin.

    I believe as a nation there should be righteous anger from all people over this election…so we can evict those responsible for the current chaos and corruption. Evict the robbers, the thieves trying to steal the highest office in the land.

    Should we continue to love our enemies? YES.
    Should we pray for repentance of ourselves and our enemies?
    YES.

    BUT let us not forget that Jesus showed us that righteous anger is not sinful!
    It can be a positive force for change.

    I pray for our righteous anger to ultimately cause an enormous revival in our nation…a change of biblical proportions. I think this has already started. Let us continue to be On our knees to intercede for our nation…a nation that God created to be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.

    ALL Glory to God.
    Amen

Beth
November 12, 2020

Before I read the article from Linda, I was reading a book called Secrets of a Prayer Warrior by Derek Prince. In his book, he says that two of the basic conditions for answered prayer is having the right motive and not harboring unforgiveness. I felt God’s spirit convicting me in these areas and I had to consider this. Do I want to be victorious for the sake of being right or do I want godly leadership? Is my anger and resentment toward “people” that I almost think of as the “enemy” ungodly and not acceptable? He called me to repent of this and I knew he wanted me to pray for those people: politicians, media types and others because some are lost and I should actually care about their eternal souls. He reminded me that our battle is not against flesh and blood. (Ephesians 6)
Prince’s book says we should pray God’s word and I found scripture concerning praying for and blessing Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6-9) which our president Donald J Trump has most certainly done. Scripture concerning the sanctity of life (Luke 1:41 and Exodus 20:13) are also the basis of my prayer. Our president has been faithful to acknowledge the preciousness of the unborn and I believe he will continue that. These are just some of God’s own words that are the basis of my prayers for him to succeed to a second term. I pray that my real motive is seeing Father glorified. When I was finished praying I read Linda’s commentary and I knew it was from the Lord and he is calling us to deeper repentance and to be a light for him. Thank you Linda, and all of the comments are encouraging too.

    Beth, thank you so much for this reminder of how we want or need to be victorious in regards to this election. I especially need to repent in the area of being right. I justified being right because it was for God’s intervention of the election. I truly want godly leadership for our country. I will continue to pray for this to happen only now it will be for with a godly heart! Thank you God for this messages that touch our hearts. God bless our President

Thank you for this letter as it not only convicted me it validates what I’ve been sensing God saying to me. As I’ve driven around our town lately, God has pointed people walking about telling me they are lost. They are usually dirty, poorly dressed. As I started to notice them I find I see them everywhere. Not knowing their situation I find my heart saddened for them. God has impressed upon me these are His & my prayer radar has gone up. In the past I was judging them or dismissing them or maybe not even noticing them, like they were invisible. That sure isn’t showing the love of Christ. My prayer is God will help me step out of my comfort zone & do His work as we are called to do.

Thank you Linda for sharing this with us!
May God bless us that we will not be deceived by our own sin (Ps. 32:2). I see a shift in many prayer groups to repentance, including repentance for personal sins as we pray for revival! It’s a bigger story being written here!
Thank you for encouraging us to allow God to expose our sin so that we may be forgiven and transformed!
I desperately need for God to provide me with the ability to love even my enemies as He commands us to do!
With Him all things are possible!!
I am thankful to be praying with the larger Body of Christ! May we meet each other in Heaven and see clearly what God is doing!! We see only through a hazy mirror now! But then we shall meet Him face to face and see Him as clearly as He sees is now!
Abba, cause Your people to worship you in the beauty of holiness!!! Amen

If we, each one of us (I include myself here!) lived our lives sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s conviction of sin; righteousness; and the judgment to come, we would be ONE and operating in the signs and wonders of our First Love as HE commissioned us! Thank you for your transparency and sharing what we all need to hear!

Very good word. Thank you Linda. You aren’t an everyday Christian in Gods eyes.
I agree with you. I think there are a lot of areas we need to individually repent of. I have felt that personally and yet don’t know all it I need to repent of. Please show us Lord. Make our hearts pure. Give us ears to hear You as You speak the areas we need to repent of. Show us how to truly love as You love. Help me, help us to see each person no matter there outward behavior as someone you treasure.

This word resonates deep down in my soul! Not only is evil, and darkness being exposed in this time, but we the people of God, the Bride of Christ, and the Nation also. I have been seeing like a sifter over my church for a while now. A sifter separates the rocks from the sand. I have been feeling in the Spirit that the teue baramoter of the Church is being measured. Ive been hearing many Christians speaking defeat, and casting fear on the very things we are praying for. They have become doubtful of the very power, mercy, and might of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I am saddened that there qare many ppl of God who voted for the plan of the enemy! We are displaying our true moral compass. This is how the church is being exposed. Our very hearts, and moral compasses. Do we side with things such as the sanctity of life, and the foundation of the family, marriage is btwn a man and a woman? What do we stand for as a united Church? We should be standing on the solid rock which is Jesus Christ. We should be standing on the Word of God, and promoting Gods love to the whole world. Not to people that line our pockets with $$, but to those who if not reached with the gospel of reconciliation will bust hell wide open. Please people of God we have to REPENT and get our FIRST LOVE back. We have to demonstrate God’s love here on Earth.

22
Linda C.
November 12, 2020

I agree with Linda, but it is so very hard to love the enemies of God, especially when they say and do such awful things. I feel like David, who suffered greatly from the torments of King Saul. David poured out his heart to the Lord continually because of his situation. Yet to Saul’s face, he was always respectful. That is what I try to do with the enemies of God, but again, it is very difficult, especially when we are persecuted for being a believer. But, I keep praying, crying and trying. Help me, Jesus, is my continual prayer with the enemies of God, who are also my enemies, even in my own family. I keep trying to love them with the love of Jesus. Sometimes I have found the best thing to do is just to speak the truth in love and then be silent in prayer and let them rage.

Yes and AMEN! I am old (77) and i am tired. I can’t do the things I did just a few years ago, but I can pray. People who say our country has never been divided like this don’t know their history. The constitution was accepted by a very few votes. There were riots when Thomas Jefferson was elected. And so on, and so on. In 1976 as we celebrated the bicentinial the Lord gave me a word. Ezekiel 17:1-10. I was a young Christian and I didn’t know how to interpret this, but I knew it was from the Lord and I knew it was talking about America. so I tucked it away. Every now and then, for 45 years, I bring it out and hold it up before Him. It remains His Word. I don’t know what will happen in the coming days but I know it comes from a Fathers heart. “O land, land, land! Hear the word of the Lord!” Jer 22:29

Powerful dream Linda. I believe humility is the key to overcoming. Oftentimes as believers we think we can not and should not be repentant but we need to be always conscious of the fact that its because of the Lords kindness to us why we are not consumed. Jesus said only the Father is good and He is the Son of God. Pride, arrogance and unrepentant attitudes can block us from walking in the grace that Jesus offers. As we pray daily, we should have Holy Spirit direct us to the sin in our lives and continue to show the love of God in every thing we do and say. We have to pray for our enemies too and not curse or wish them ill. We must operate in the fruit of the Spirit. During this election many believers have not shown the fruit of the Spirit and I believe it’s causing the Church of the Lord Jesus to look bad. Lets remember who we are and whose we are even as we pray that God will reveal truth and expose the lies and deception of the enemy. Shalom.

Cole
November 12, 2020

I agree with this. On a personal level, I continue to ask God to show me (or us as His body of believers) any sin in our lives. From the smallest to the largest sin….all of it. And as I thought like that (small to large), the spirit of God showed me “that is the problem”. We measure sin, whereas God does not. He just says “sin is sin”. There is greater accountability or fallout for some sin but still God says “sin is sin” and that is why He alone is the Judge – not us.
Change our hearts Lord. We cannot do it on our own. Let our hearts truly understand that repentance is an ongoing process that brings delight to your eyes and ears. For through repentance, you change us. You humble us. And when we are humble, your Holy Spirit can reach down and continue to fill us with your love to share with a dying world around us. Amen.

I too have been so, so BLESSED by this ministry of intercession. With all the thought, time, effort, and coordination with so many people, you produced a comprehensive, yet practical and easy-to-use, method of praying for our nation. I have been able to call upon God in these last few months more effectively time wise and definitely more intelligently due to all the information you have provided. You saved me so much time in necessary research and also in just thinking how to word my prayers. In fact, YOU did ALL THE preliminary WORK FOR ME! It is obvious that you bathed this ministry in much prayer before setup and have since then been continuously praying over every detail in order to maintain it. Thank you, thank you Mr. Kubal and all the many who have made this site possible!! You all have done an amazing job! May God bless you and your loved ones, this nation, and all the nations of the world as a result of your outstanding work on His behalf. May America Bless God Again until Jesus comes Again!

Additionally I agree with the point made in the article above. Satan finds many ways to attack anyone who prays fervently and especially anyone who prays for a nation in the precarious position and condition in which the United States of America is at present. I too find myself more often in need of confession and repentance due to my sin-what with all the many creative and unforeseen attacks by the Enemy and my own inherent propensity to sin. It keeps me humbled and pleading, not just for forgiveness and mercy, but also for help (i.e., HELP!) from Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ (who intercedes for me and is the basis for answering any of my prayers anyhow) to detect immediately the devil’s tactics when dealing with all these temptations and then to give me the strength to respond to them in a godly way. Actually my failures and need for repentance often help me to be more gracious and less judgmental (i.e., more LOVING) to other like sinners.

I will Stand for Jesus and Fight for HIS Right–on my knees–till America Blesses God Again!

I fully agree that we must repent individually and for our nation.
However as I read this article I heard…’remember the money changers’.

In Mark 11 Jesus was very angry when he came to the temple…furious with righteous anger. Jesus was angry that people were selling things in the holy temple.
He said they had turned the sacred place into a den of robbers, and HE EVICTED THEM.

We know that God loves all his children with all their sins and warts. But Jesus gives us this example that even Jesus, Emmanual, Lord and Savior, of the world, had righteous anger. And clearly, this is not a sin, since Jesus had no sin.

I believe as a nation there should be righteous anger from all people over this election…so we can evict those responsible for the current chaos and corruption. Evict the robbers, the thieves trying to steal the highest office in the land.

Should we continue to love our enemies? YES.
Should we pray for repentance of ourselves and our enemies?
YES.

BUT let us not forget that Jesus showed us that righteous anger is not sinful!
It can be a positive force for change.

I pray for our righteous anger to ultimately cause an enormous revival in our nation…a change of biblical proportions. I think this has already started. Let us continue to be On our knees to intercede for our nation…a nation that God created to be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.

ALL Glory to God.
Amen

Yes, the body of Christ is turning back to God!
Many are repenting and still others have need for revival in their own hearts.
True repentance is not beating ourselves over the head, it is embracing the work of the cross.
Some times’ we could even have a “self righteous” repentance which is pride. When repenting we do well by remembering God cleanses us and we are free. The love of Jesus is deep and strong, He throws are sins as far as the the east is from the west and does not remember them.
Certainly confession is wonderful and necessary, how ever am I extremely grateful that God does not call us bad people .
It is healthy to have an attitude of humility that we are wrong all the time and at the same time that as we seek Jesus’ forgiveness we need to guard against ” naval gazing” which the scripture reveals as being “sin focused” with out fully forgiving our selves .
There is always room for improvement and change in our lives, may we live in His Grace as He works in us!

I appreciate your sharing about repentance and learning to love. It takes humility to do this–humility from the heart. This is something I have cried out for years. I have encouraged heart prayer in teaching prayer.

When we humble ourselves from our heart, this I believe is the start of Revival.

Thank you for sharing your heart in this message.

Yes, I believe Linda is right on track. It is the unconditional love of God that wins spiritual battles. And we need to ask God for a greater measure of His Love each day, because we gave away what He gave us yesterday. And, He gives it to us, whenever we ask and we have to ask . It’s what the world needs……..the love of God. The Bible declares that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. Who is our neighbor? Well, Who are we willing to be a neighbor to?. Our prayer group is praying for our adversaries , praying blessings on those who do not know God and are unaware of their condition.

Through the marvelous, mighty, matchless, power of the Holy Spirit within, (the same power that raised Jesus from the dead,)
the Holy Spirit power that convicted you and me of our own sin, revival will surely spread across America. Faith gives us confidence and inspires us to anticipate with expectation. It has to do with the unseen and the future. And faith gives us hope. Hope is a factor in endurance under trial, an anchor for the soul amidst the storms of life. Hope is a purifying power. I John 3:3 declares “And everyone who has this hope (resting) on Him, cleanses (purifies) himself just as He is pure…….”

This resonates with me as since last night I have crying before God to destroy every Idol in my heart and within the church. Jesus desires to take His place in our hearts and even in the heart of the President. Whatever the outcome of the election, it is in the hands of the Lord but we need to cry to God and ask Him to take His place in our hearts. Who knows that could be the key to turning things around.

Yes! I am going through a very similar call to turn full on face to face with the loving Lord and repent for my selfishness and unwillingness to love people where they are rather than trying “to fix” them with a Pharisaical attitude of how much “more together” I am. It is very painful to really “see” that in myself but at the same time it is so refreshing to lay that weight aside and just let people be and love them right where they are. Thank you Lord for what you’re doing in the hearts of your people! ❤️❣️❤️

O how this hits home with me, I have started praying for a double portion of the 1st church spirit, one of 1st most repentents, then lead by the Holy Spirit on fire for God, then God added daily to His church, men & women discipled each other, broke bread with each other. I have also prayed that humility will start in me, but spreaded to all, that President Trump will be humbled that God is still using him. Thank you for sharing and confirming what God is showing me.

Grace & Truth… the Holy Spirit in us gives us the ability to walk humbly in grace, while speaking the Truth, in love.

John 1:14
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Ephesians 4:15
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,

Amen. Thank you for sharing your experience and interceding on our behalf.

This is what I’ve been feeling in my spirit. A lot of us have gotten so wrapped up in politics (myself included) that the unbelieving world is turned off. We become so focused on what man is doing, we don’t see what God is doing. We as Christians need to love others more. We need to have a good reputation, love those who may differ from us politically, not argue politics (going on in many churches. There are other Christians who differ politically). Share the love of Jesus with others, speak the truth in love. Lord, please help us as Christians to truly repent, that 2 Chronicles 7:14 will not grow old. Help us to be the Body of Christ while on this earth. In Jesus Name, amen.

November 12, 2020

I so agree with Ms Linda!! Since the beginning of the pandemic the Lord has been showing me my sin. I try to repent daily as a lot of people are saying, but there are also so many hidden things in our hearts that we don’t see… unhealed hurts that have turned to bitterness and judgements against others, things that are so deep that it takes a continuous forgiving to be fully free and not become angry or bitter, and there are hurts and rejections, pains that we have to let the Lord into to heal… He is certainly faithful. Just this week twice He has revealed some ugly things that were in my heart and I didn’t even realize they were there until He showed me. I know I can’t intercede like I should when I have ugly in my heart. I want to live fully surrendered to Christ and to show His love to others well. I have been praying this since March “show me any wicked way in me Lord, and lead me in Your way everlasting.” And He truly has. Lord, help us not to become proud or judgemental of others as we pray but help us instead to just be filled with love for those we pray for! We love you Father, we thank you Jesus, amen

    It’s good to have God’s light that shines on those areas that we need to repent of and get healing. It helps even more to get at the roots of bitterness or the why do I get SO easily offended (one of my issues) as revealed by his Spirit. Places where the enemy has access that we have to break and kick him out!!! Thank you for sharing your particular experience as I know so many can see a need for change. Don’t just stay in the cycle of repeating sin and being in condemnation. We can be set free! I recommend Soul Care by Rob Reimer as one of many great resources out there. We can be that Glorious Church!

November 12, 2020

Thank you! Yes, I have been feeling the same need for genuine and personal repentance. It seems that too often when we’re called to repent, we do so “on behalf of” the nation for sins we may not personally be involved in (and we should do
that as well) but neglect personal repentance or our own pride and self-righteousness and for sins of the church such as racism, watering down the gospel, being more
Influenced by the culture than influencing it, etc. Praise God that we can confess, repent, and be forgiven! May we do so and move on to live and love like Jesus.

Yes! On 11/10, as I was spending time with the Lord, He had me read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7NLT and He said That is who I am and that should be every Believer’s goal, so that the world can see Me, when they look at My children! And I too have been repenting daily for things that He shows me about me and the body of Christ! We must truly repent and walk in Love, all day, every day, no matter who or what comes our way!!!

Forgive me Father for hating any and for being offended. You still SO LOVE THE WHOLE WORLD!!
Jesus says pray for our enemies …for the people who seem to be enemies but are in fact caught in the snare of the true enemy.
Also remember this:
the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

WE HAVE TO RETURN THE POWER OF OUR PRAYERS AND TONGUES BACK TO LOVING WHAT GOD LOVES…PEOPLE SOULS SOULS SOULS we only have one enemy he is the devil who has no tongue so he seeks to use another’s …Holy Spirit will you help us to clamp our mouth’s shut unless we have KINGDOM TO RELEASE

THROUGH and BY DROPPING TRUE AGAPE LAVA LOVE UPON THEM which approach us in hate and hell’s furry… they are being used as pawns but only THE TRUE LOVE OF GOD WILL WIN THIS DAY!!
Blessings only for you and yours as you continue to expose the distractions to divide a “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” Body of people.
Keep using the power of God in YOUR VOICE FOR YOUR TONGUE IS FULL OF HIS MIGHTY POWER I ask the Father to crank up HIS POWER AND HEAT IN YOU AS YOU PRAY AND INTERCEDE FOR THE SOUL OF THIS NATION…ONLY CHRIST JESUS WILL DO!! JESUS ALONE IS THE ANSWER!!
\o/ Father, forgive me for hating any human being for You so loved them that You Poured out Yourself through Jesus to save ALL MANKIND. I will choose to love and to bless instead of cursing any person. I will bless them in praying Aaron’s Blessing into their lives. Father, May You Lord Bless that one that I perceive to be my enemy and Keep that one. Father, May You shine Your face upon that perceived flesh and blood enemy and be gracious, merciful in Your Full Grace towards them. Father, May You dearest Lord lift up Your Countenance towards them drawl them to Yourself and bring salvation and redemption to their souls and give them Your Shalom through the redemptive Blood of Christ which is ever before Your face. In Jesus’ Mighty Name bring the Might Spirit of Salvation into the houses of both the Democrats and the Republicans that it be ever present in The People’s House of America. I ask earnestly and with confidence that You Hear and Answer with Your own Yes, So Be It and Amen

Yes, In Ezekiel God punishes His people because they refuse to recognize their sins. He uses their enemies to come against them over and over again. But when their enemies took pleasure in witnessing their judgment, God judged them as well. We must not seek vengeance nor delight in seeing anyone’s punishment for as the Word says, he who is without sin cast the first stone. No, as priests we are to intercede for sincere repentance while putting away the pointed finger so God can bring healing to us and our land. For we do not contend against flesh and blood but the evil forces which try to destroy men. For it is not God’s will that anyone perish but come to the knowledge of God’s saving grace in Jesus Christ. In Quietness and Confidence is our strength so the world will know it is by God’s Hand and not man.

Amen and amen! Only when we truly repent and change our thinking and behavior will our part of 2Chr 7:14 be accomplished. Confession is not repentance. Turning from sin to righteousness is required. Let’s just do that now and we will see the salvation of the Lord.

First of all, I believe we as the church has failed our nation by not preaching the pure gospel of Jesus Christ! Now the wicked has been emboldened to do more evil! The spirit of lawlessness is a loose in the nation and if God does not intervene it will be over for us all!
After 9/11 there were not outpouring of repentance like we are today or prayer and fasting like now! We are in judgment now and it is going to be very difficult even with Trump in office for another 4 years!

The Lord has shown me l too have not shown His love to the world🩸He has been showing me the motive in my heart has not been right! I’ve been repenting as He has been uncovering! God help us to show His love to a broken and lost world ❤️

    November 12, 2020

    Yes, I agree. God has revealed to me my motives have been impure and I am hypocritical, insincere, and a coward in sharing His Truth. He is scourging and purging exposing the roots. Now, my intercession has been cleansed, purified according to His will. Praise be to God for His mercy and grace to show me myself, so I can be real. 🥰

Amen! I have been convicted as well to love one another, slow to anger, and love your neighbor as yourself. Asking for forgiveness and humbling myself before the Lord. I’ve also prayed that President Trump is also in prayer, humbling himself before our God. I’ve had some visions myself in prayer time about people in government being exposed and ushered out of governmental building’s. And other one’s concerning the inauguration. I thank God that he’s in control.

The letter from the average every day Christian did resonate with me. I tend to be judgemental as my earlier carrier was as a law enforcement officer in a 30 year carrier. The issue of loving your enemy is difficult when you see many in our govt openly supporting revolution and Marxism for America. I am by nature a vocal man and I realize I have to bite my tongue. I will with the Holy Spirits help to repent of my own sin.

33
    Susan
    November 12, 2020

    It’s BOTH! We are to first repent of our own sins and definitely go to Him cleansed and pure through true repentance. Completely in love with Him to die to sin. But we are to LOVE in TRUTH and JESUS is TRUTH! He is the Word! We have to be careful because the lukewarm church has made sin and loving the fruit of it a part of the Gospel and that is a lie of the adversary to defile and destroy the power of the Body of Christ. We want to call people to the AMAZING that comes through walking in obedience and holiness because we have been co-crucified and purchased with the precious Blood of Jesus and we are on longer our own. In love, we have to deal with ourselves first in humility before the Lord in full disclosure followed by obedience to the new life and holiness we are to have because He is Holy. Love can’t leave out Holiness because God is LOVE and God is HOLY! Be Holy because I am Holy! Cleanse your hands and purify your hearts! Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus’ warning that though that called on His Name, cast demons our in His Name, performed miracles in His Name, they practiced lawlessness, and He denied them because He said they never knew Him. (Matthew 7:21-24)
    Holy Spirit says to me, if they love Jesus, they obey. When we don’t love Him enough to honor Him as worthy and as our King and Lord, we diminish His full Victory for us to walk pure and blameless and pure. That is how Jesus gets dirt in His face. In Jesus’ great Name I pray against this for myself and His Bride and release a Spirit of Truth, a Spirit of alignment with Christ’s mind and heart, a Spirit of true repentance, a Spirit of fear of the Lord. I bind a spirit of fear of man, compromise, lukewarm -ness in Jesus’ Name that we no longer forsake our first love!!

But I say to you, Love those who want to hurt you and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 5:44‭-‬45 NLT

Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…
Acts 3:19 ESV

Father God,
You are the Supreme Judge, the LORD, full of grace and mercy, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Thank You for Your patience with me as I confess my sin of looking at those who oppose my views, especially regarding politics, as the enemy. Your Word tells us that our enemy is not flesh and blood but our enemy is the spiritual forces of evil.
Forgive me, Father.
You call us to pray for those who want to hurt us AND TO LOVE THEM.
I confess that in my own flesh I have not done this, so I ask by the power of Your Holy Spirit living in me, fill me with love and compassion for them. Help me to see them as You see them. Break my heart with those things that break Your heart. That I will commit to pray Your blessings on them and to pray for their salvation. Please put a guard over my tongue when speaking with friends or using social media, that I bless and not curse.
May the fragrance of Jesus be a powerful witness among Your people, for Your kingdom’s sake in the wonderful name of Jesus. Amen

I too have felt the need for a deeper searching of my own heart and a call for true repentance.
2 Chronicles 7:14 is a continual prayer and the words “ humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways” reminds me to search my own heart and seek forgiveness.
Thank you. Linda for sharing this message and intercession for our great nation as we unite in one nation under God’s leadership.

Robert Vasile
November 12, 2020

This is what I wrote on the morning of Election Day – And additions 2 days later.

What about the election results?

The victory of Joe Biden and the democratic platform is to be understood as a step toward the culmination of the affairs of men in the world. The alignment of the left wing with the globalist progressives will accelerate formation of the one world government, also known as the new world order.

This is a position taken by many Bible teachers and particularly those who study Bible prophesy in current events.

I personally believe that this has to occur. I personally believe it will occur within the next 8 years or two voting cycles in the USA.

The re-election of Donald Trump only stalls that alignment and intensifies the parties of interest in getting it done. The power to manipulate the masses are in place. From Covid-19, radical groups destroying our rule of law and many additional factors that include socio- economic control. (The Great Reset)

Francis Schaefer analyzed the history of the west from Rome to his day. In 1977 he determines that without the Christian consensus the West would see the rise of an elite manipulative group of leaders. They would impose arbitrary absolutes on society in place of the traditional absolutes of Judeo- Christian ethics.
This shift would be evident in academia, technology, media, business and ultimately politics.

https://mises.org/wire/lockdowns-great-reset

So, what about the election results?

I rejoice either way because I know that my God is intimately involved in the affairs of men, even if men will not acknowledge His sovereign reign. Just like Babel, men will keep attempting to build to the glory of man. The results will be the same with complete finality this time. A remnant of the faithful will be saved through Divine intervention. That intervention is already manifest in the living Christ in operation through His body, the true church. His power to intercede through the pure channels of His choice will increase as the evil actions of godless men increase.

Stay alert!  Be sober and watch for the opportunities to present the gospel accompanied with the power of the Holy Spirt as the day of the Lord draws closer. 

Here’s the Greek word for power used in the Acts of the Apostles. 
1411. δύναμις dunamis, doo’-nam-is;
From 1410; force (literally or figuratively); specifically miraculous power (usually by implication a miracle itself). 
:–ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.

This (dunamis) power will be evident in the lives of all true believers. It’s not a carnival show from televangelists and tent meetings anymore. Jesus knew when real power was present and it was applied to validate who He really was and to demonstrate the compassion of God directly to a fallen world.  It will continue to intensify as part of the testimony of who He still is!  Seek the giver of the gifts, not the gift itself. A gift is intended to bless someone else, they are for the edification of the church not intended to benefit the individual from or through whom they are channeled.  

I pray for you and your family.  These will be more difficult times within our familial relationships because a line is being drawn in society.  We will be challenged to conform to good virtues presented in a humanist package, without God!  Why? Because of the lie. Humanism starts with man as the center and believes that man is basically good and possesses good intentions.  
But we believe that from God’s standard of perfection, man’s goodness is like filthy rags. Only the humble will see the depravity of their own soul and the need to apply the blood of the Lamb.  
Able was accepted and Cain was rejected. People wonder why?  
Because Cain brought the fruit of his efforts to produce and to ease a guilty conscience. To appease an angry God.
Able brought a lamb and in a symbolic and supernatural act transfers his guilt to the lamb, slaughtered and burned it. This statement is essential to sharing the Gospel.
Jesus identified Able as the first prophet who’s own blood was shed because of the message he proclaimed. That message was “Man is depraved and God is merciful to save”. We are sinners and there is no level of self righteousness or amount of societal altruism that will restore a broken relationship with the Almighty God. 
The statement Able made is “there is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood” Later to be stated in Deuteronomy.
Ergo, Paul writes “I preach Christ and Him crucified”  

That’s my view. Have a great day in the Year of Our Lord. November 3, 2020

Additions and revisions 11/5/20

Hebrews 11:4 (KJV)
[4] By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts:

I’m convicted by the face of Jesus you first saw. As well my lip

Good Morning Everyone!!! What a beautiful share from Miss Linda!!! Thank You So Much!!! I really needed that this morning – your message has resounded within my heart, and helped reset my attitude and my need for humility and repentance. It’s so easy to become judgmental!! Father, thank you for giving Linda this vision. Please help me and each and every one of us in the Body of Christ Jesus to humble ourselves and repent as Holy Spirit leads us, and submit to Your Will for ourselves and this Precious Nation that You love. We ask for Your help and guidance in all our ways. Lead us, Precious Father, according to Your Will for this hour that You have blessed us with. We praise Your Name forever, LORD GOD, King of the Universe, Creator of All in the Holy and Matchless Name of Our LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!

November 12, 2020

Yes Linda’s writing resonates with what I am sensing too. We must praise and repent for ourselves and intercede for others as well. And that
Jesus is walking among us
as well as praying for us.
And his heart aches to be known and received into
the hearts and minds of
all who do not know him and he presses us to carry the message of his atoning work to them.

Yesterday as I listened to Dr Jeremiah’s message on a Father’s plea to Jesus to liberate his demon possessed son (Mark 9), I realized that like that boy who was born with a demon our Country though founded by Christians for religious freedom had its moments of horrific events like the massacre of Native Americans.

So I begged for God’s forgiveness for the bloodshed of the innocent indigenous peoples and the treachery of broken treaties with them. How they continue to suffer as we enjoy prosperity is stripping.

I am also gravely concerned about the lack of purity in our Church
universal and how cleverlyAntichrist is oozing under the doors with convoluted culturally modified teachings and practices.

God lead us forward on the narrow path.

    We also need to remember the enslavement of black people. Families that were separated and destroyed and the women that were sexually assaulted repeatedly. We are still dealing with the consequences of these actions. With everything going on nationally, it is easy to look at angry people in the streets and point fingers. Yet I believe the Lord wants us to look deep and get to the root of the matter.

Agree with love of Jesus message being needed to be more powerfully presented than judgement of God message. Mercy is the what the work of cross shows while judgement (against sin) accomplished. Gift of righteousness is through resurrection. (Although law defines sin and God’s stance against it, to prepare one to receive understanding of need of Savior and need to allow God to change one’s self by accepting God’s work through Jesus for one’s self. Also agree that the big deal for Christians is recognition our eternal main kingdom we live in is currently primarily God’s kingdom and we take our main orders from God and serve in primary allegiance to God while obeying and serving our secondary worldly nation every command this earthly nation gives that does not violate heavenly commands. Too, our main agenda is always heavenly, such as to make disciples of all nations and love God and no other God’s before him and no adultery and no lying and no coveting and love neighbor as self.

I am so glad that you revealed your heart. So often as Christians, we wear a veil with one another. God, please help us to allow You to reveal our sins, the hidden things of the heart. You are gentle and kind. We need to repent of our own wicked ways. You said, Father, that “If we confess our sins, I will forgive your sins and cleanse you of all unrighteousness.” Lord, I want to confess specific sins that I am not aware of, that I have buried. Show them to me that I may be a purified bride for You and for Your glory. Amen.

Psalm 139: 23 -24
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 19: 12 – 13
Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Today Lord, this is our prayer. We look to You Lord Jesus for complete cleansing by Your blood. That we live in the fullness of the price You paid. And help us to be completely sold out to and for You by the power of Your Holy Spirit in Your name Jesus we pray, Amen.
