I Prayed have prayed
Father, thank You for the wonderful things You have done in our nation. Whenever the future seems bleak, God, help us to keep our eyes upon You and what You are doing.

Political unrest. Economic struggles. COVID still. High gas prices. Food shortages. Unprecedented violence. Have you had enough? Are you weary and frustrated? Some are finding that such prolonged seasons of challenge as this can become a breeding ground for hopelessness.

Perhaps you, like many others, are beginning to question: “Why even pray? It’s not working … ”

Oh, but yes, it is!

I want to remind you of a scripture found in the Old Testament:

Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. And I will set your bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the River. For I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you (Exodus 23:30–31 NKJV).

God had delivered the children of Israel from Egypt and was leading them to their Promised Land. He didn’t send them in blindly; He told His people there would be adversaries along the way. He shared with them that there would be battles to fight.

The promise remained, however, that God would deliver the enemy into their hand. As we know, God could have removed every single enemy in a day — after all, He did just that at the Red Sea. This time He did not promise to remove the enemies that way. Instead, He said He would drive them out little by little. Think about that for a moment: It wouldn’t happen quickly or suddenly; no, they would have to keep taking the land, and the battle would be ongoing. That doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?

As always, God kept His word, though, and little by little, every single enemy was driven out. Ultimately, God’s people took the Promised Land, just as He said they would.

It is easy to look around and see what is happening in our world or listen to the local media and decide that things are getting worse, not better. But we must dig deeper. The truth is, change is happening — good change.

We are seeing victories all along the way. For instance, we are seeing parents arise and attend school board meetings with a new passion; we have seen parental-rights victories in Virginia and other states. We are seeing victories in light of the Roe v. Wade overturn, including increasing numbers of sanctuary cities for the unborn. Thousands are praying across this country — for our government and for our nation — to a degree unlike anything I have seen in my lifetime. Prayer groups are meeting weekly (some even daily), and God is moving in our nation.

Exposures of wickedness and corruption are taking place in huge numbers. Countless stories in the media reveal that God is answering our prayers to expose the enemy. According to the latest articles, accountability is coming, and it is coming on all sides.

We are taking back our nation — little by little.

After God spoke in Exodus 23 to tell the people He would drive their enemies out little by little, He confirmed this truth in Deuteronomy 7:22. In doing so, God reiterated that His people would have a part to play in driving out the enemies they would encounter along the way. Yes, God will drive out the darkness, but we have a part to play in removing darkness from our midst.

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers …” (1 Peter 3:12 NKJV).

James 5:16 says:  … The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working] (AMPC).

Intercessors across the nation have been praying heartfelt, continuous prayers, and we are beginning to see manifestations of the tremendous power this type of intercession brings forth. For this reason, we must keep praying. We cannot stop now. It is making a difference: Eyes are being opened; change is taking place.

People are beginning to see the mainstream media for what they really are. People are seeking truth — real truth. This is all happening because of those who are crying out to God. God’s ears are open to our prayers. He hears us, and He is responding — our job is to continue to take the land, little by little. Day by day. Month after month. Year after year, if necessary. Remember, we have a part to play.

As we search through the pages of the Bible, we see the awesome results of prayer. These are not just words on a page — they are the manifested power of God. They are God’s answers to the heartfelt prayers of His people. In the same manner, if we look across our nation, we will see that God is still answering the cries of His people. He is the same God yesterday, today, and forever. He hears our prayers, and He is responding. The darkness is being exposed and driven out through prayer and by the power of God. Be encouraged! Our prayers are producing awesome results. Believe no less.

May our eyes of discernment be clear. May we speak truth in love but always honor the Lord in all we speak to others. When discouragement comes no it will not last if we refresh ourselves in the presents of the Lord. Being with others to pray in one accord causes the gated of Hell to tremble.

Our God is so remarkable.! See how He used the NFL Damar Hamlin incident (player who suffered a cardiac arrest on the field 1/2/2023) and is now showing a miraculous recovery for His Glory. On Monday and afterwards, the players on the field quickly fell to their knees to pray to God for Damar’s recovery. Newscasters were encouraging prayers. People all over the Internet and all over the world were shown praying. Praying was actually encouraged. To think that several years ago, that this was the same organization (NFL-National Football League) that was sanctioning players who refused to stand up for the Star Spangled Banner at the beginning of games and instead knelt in unison to BLT rhetoric. Let us pray that as my Father said, that in the end, “All knees will bow at the Name of Jesus and all tongues will confess that He is Lord.” Amen.

He has been speaking that word Little By Little to three of us who meet together weekly just to pray for our nation. Other scriptures…Luke 12:1-5 ” Every thing that has been in the darkness will come into the light…..Jeremiah 6:16 ” Stand by the roadways and look . Ask about the ancient paths. Which is the way to good? Then take it and find rest for your souls”…Habakkuk 2:1-3 about be that watchman on the tower and for the vision is for an appointed time. Though it tarry wait for it for it will surely come and not be late. psalm 75. My friend received this word several years ago You will want to read it. So powerful. She has a prophetic gifting. Thank you for your timely word of encouragement. He has been speaking to me near the .end of this year that breakthroughs are coming be it family, the church, etc… most sincerely, Linda

Awesome article! Thank you!
As the Lord is causing our beloved Nation to vomit up all the vile corruption its held in its belly for decades, it’s tough to look at. It’s disgusting and it smells. BUT, it’s necessary so healing can begin.
Praise God for His intervention. Praise God He loves us enough to expose and heal. And Praise God that we were all born for “such a time as this”, as He gives us the privilege to assist in the clean up and healing process. And to help our beloved Nation walk out the declaration: “One Nation Under God.”

Amen! YES our intercession and decrees bring about powerful results! What develops in the natural/physical always takes place in the spiritual realm first. As intercessors, we attack these issues and release Angelic forces to tear down the plans and schemes of the invisible enemy so they do not manifest in the natural/physical (Or so what the enemy already has in progress must dissolve at the very mention of the name of our Lord Jesus). “Believe what you ask for, and you will have it.” -Jesus. Let His Kingdom come, and His will be done in America as it is in Heaven.

Believes need to understand both the enemy and the Father Play for the long term. We have to realize and understand that! The flesh wants it NOW! We have to know and believe God is working even if we can’t see or feel it. Remember that faith is the substance of things not yet seen! If we could “see” it and bring it about under our own power we wouldn’t need God! Pray in faith BELIEVING!

“Lord bless this little country church by the side of the road help it to grow and prosper and see souls saved.” A prayer a member who is now a deacon prays every time he leads prayer. it will be the opening line in a book for Faber Missionary Baptist Church in Faber KY. We sit between nowhere and nowhere else, (Woodbine, KY and Rockholds, Ky. We had dwindled down to 16-18 regular members and a few youth, 2 who were faithful. We had no piano player in January of 2020 and covid had little affect on us. We hired a pianist who taught music and then a youth director came into play. God was working the prayer, in May of 2022 on the 15th during a youth led service we had 15 souls get saved, and 9 re dedications Some youth and some adults. By the time July came we had 18 to be Baptized into the Church, so we opted to go to what we call the spillway at Laurel Lake. The day we went 2 more were saved that day and a total of 17 rededications so we baptized 37 for an hour that day. Total salvations from May 15th to December is 27 souls saved. Our youth has 49 in it now and we are so Blessed by the Hand, Spirit, Word of God. Our youth keep bringing friends and they keep getting saved! I am the Blessed Pastor of this Church and my name is not important in any of this all Glory and Honor go to Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Boats literally stopped and watched for an hour as we had our service. So yes the earnest continual prayer of a righteous man does avail much! Our youth recently partook in a parade in Williamsburg, singing engaging the crowd as they walked and sang down the street. A local owner of a place called the Gospel Barn went after our float and invited our youth to sing there! My prayer let them grow in the word, and come together as a church in themselves. One thing I correct people on every day as they say OH they are the future church, Nope they are the church of today growing to take the reigns of the church they built.

Because of roe v Wade, I am volunteering at a pregnancy center and being trained to counsel and go into the high schools for biblical sexual awareness sessions.
Because of joining IFA I am more involved with focused prayers and action.
My church is more on purpose to train up children/youth in the full counsel of God’s Word.
I am instilling an on purpose biblical character building curriculum in our schools we started in Uganda Africa.

Father, I thank you that people are praying more, please give any/all who are not saturating themselves in your word the hunger, thirst, and overall divine desire to do so, and likewise to obey it with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength. Prayer is wonderful but even more wonderful Revelation tells one of the names of Jesus Himself is the WORD, and John clearly informs us in the very first chapter of His gospel that Jesus IS the WORD that was WITH God and WAS God from the beginning. How equally important the WORD is along with prayer, and how wonderful to declare it DURING prayer. Father we thank you for Jesus who IS the WORD who was made flesh and therefore the WORD is our AUTHORITY and HAS ALL authority over Communism, over witchcraft, divination, over enemies such as sin, destructive habits, and COVID and ill health. THE WORD is our sword and also our shield and buckler in this war. THE WORD is FULL of PRECIOUS Promises which protect and equip us and by which and with which we are MORE than conquerors. Thank you Father, thank you Jesus, for hearing our prayers, thank you Holy Spirit, for your work in convicting the world of sin and revealing and manifesting Jesus Christ, the WORD of God.

REVELATION 19:13
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Also read the Gospel of John, especially Chapter 1.

Reading the OT, Lot doesn’t seem that righteous, but 2 Peter 2:8 says “Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day. For in sight and hearing he was just: dwelling among them, who from day to day vexed the just soul with unjust works. That good man lived among them, and day after day he suffered agony as he saw and heard their evil actions.” And then he seemed pretty unprepared when God finally did something. Rather than running to the mountains, as far away as possible, he went to a nearby town. It was closer, and it probably did not seem as “bad” as Sodom & Gomorrah. I can’t imagine the chilling effect it had on his soul to see God’s judgment rain down on those cities.
Lord, OUR souls are vexed, and we desire Your judgment. We thank you that You shelter those who look to You. We ask for perseverance and patience in regard to Your timing. And above all, we IMPLORE that Your Spirit would move prior to Your judgment, that many, many would repent and turn to You. Help us to discern the seriousness of the times, and to witness boldly, both of the judgment to come, and to Your great, great love and mercy!

Thankfully, the Truth regarding the ‘vaccines’ is also being exposed, though still not in the mainstream media. This is long, 3 hrs., but extremely informative. Sen. Ron Johnson has hosted a number of these dialogues with Doctors, ‘vaccine’-injured, etc.. He has been faithfully and consistently attempting to uncover this darkness. I pray that God’s Light shines and exposes this diabolical event in Jesus’ name. May God bless Sen. Johnson for his faithfulness. https://rumble.com/v1ze4d0-covid-19-vaccines-what-they-are-how-they-work-and-possible-causes-of-injuri.html

Light exposes darkness. This corruption has taken a long time to evolve into this swamp demonic global abomination but God is Almighty to save America and use America to help in the third great awakening and the reformation of this demonic woke culture. Light dispels darkness and the ecclesia is getting bigger and more united. The flashpoint army people are encouraged to go to Rick Green”s site and sign up for patriot’s academy biblical citizenship course to educate all of us and get us into unity. I am signing up today and am a 71 year hoping to engage more in my New London, Connecticut community activities for the glory of God and God alone to bring in the light and dispel darkness. We are one body and God wants to use all of us for his glory to defeat Baal and all his loser angels. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus.

I think as a nation we have become very spoiled and what we are experiencing is nothing compared to what others in our nation have faced before. Hardship is a life that many of us have not really known so to take time to pray and do our part and get involved is not a lot to ask in the grand scheme of things! My prayer is for us to remember who our hope is in…the Lord Jesus Christ…and that He is with us and working thru us…not by our might but by His..the mighty power of God!!

Amen….Thank You, HEAVENLY FATHER, for holding us up when we feel as though our strength is small. We ask for greater Courage, as we see so many things in our nation spiraling out of control.

Lift us as we pray for our families, our nation, and all around the world. So many hurting people—so many sick and struggling with fear—as our nation continues on a rocky road that can lead us to destruction. FATHER, Thank You for sending JESUS. I rest in HIM as I pray day by day.

LORD, I know You do All things well. Amen

I agree with you. My faith has grown much as I read the scriptures and understand that the principalities over our nation will be destroyed when Jesus comes back and not before. 1 Cor 15:24. I felt convicted as I began to understand that God created these spiritual beings and then they rebelled. He has already judged them and sentenced them to death. God has a plan for them. That plan was sealed when Jesus died and rose again. This plan of redemption of His entire creation will take place when He comes back. Our hope is not in this world. It’s fallen, it’s decaying, it’s full of sin. Our suffering here serves a purpose, changing us for our service in the new creation God will set up. It’s going to be glorious. We have no idea. We will look back and realize what our suffering here was just a pittance compared to the glory we will experience. We can pray for our leaders as in 1Tim 2, with the understanding we are in the world but not of the world. Our hope is not in anything of this world. This understanding gives true freedom in Christ.

Amen!!! Yes, He watches over His word to perform it. His word does not return to Him void, but it accomplishes all that He sends it to do. And that is what Jesus did for us at the cross, He finished the work, dying for us and paying our debt to open the way where there was no way as He was raised from the dead and raises us with Him as we trust in Him and call on Him. So Lord we call out to You, pour out Your Spirit of grace and supplication as we cry out to You day and night on behalf of those sitting in darkness and without hope, taken captive by the enemy to do his will as we cry out on their behalf, bring revival here, bring great awakening here, cause Your church to arise and shine and let the enemy be scattered as You do Your work among us, bringing multitudes into the valley of decision as You pour out Your Spirit on all flesh, let them see Jesus and say “yes” and receive Jesus as Lord of their lives. In Jesus name, amen!!

Things are turning around slowly. It takes courage and time to reverse the momentum of the evil and perversions, and the communism which has taken hold of the vulnerable minds.
Help comes in surprising forms and ways. Zuckerberg’s revelations, and his related problems. Musk’s purging of Twitter’s work history. Trump’s battles. May God give him strength not to lash out without formulated thought in anger. DeSantis, Cotton, Cruz are just a few more fighting for our Constition and civilization. There are many of us not so well known.
Use your pocketbook to not support “woke” (hate the word, come up with a better description) companies and their products. Mars with the rainbow m&ms, American Girl, tic tok, the makers of “aunt” Jemima, “uncle” Ben’s. Even the families of the icons protested. Climate Change is a tool. Our capitalism has improved our standards and lessened our pollution and waste for decades.
Make your values known in your communities. Prayer yes; WWII was not won on prayer alone. God helps those who help themselves.

    May I also add, take our language and symbols back. “Merry Christmas”, celebrate Thanksgiving, “May God be with you.” I am pretty much gay: light spirited, bright as a nose game. This is not an error. This program will not let me spell N O S E G A Y.
    I know several homosexsuals. They are quiet about who they are. They do not oppose the mainstream. What we are seeing and dealing with are the aberrant. COMMUNISTS USE YOUR VALUES AGAINST YOU.. THEY USE PROPAGANDA, INDOCTRINATION. Democracy is all we hear, repeated often. WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY. WE ARE A REPUBLIC. OUR DEIST FORE FATHERS WERE INTELLIGENT TO SET UP OUR GREAT NATION UNDER GOD THAT WAY.
    Take back our hearts, rainbows etc. They are God given.
    I once heard a woman say her grandmother alway said, God gave us two hands one to help the other. And May I add two feet, a brain as well as a heart. We can walk away from as well as walk toward.
    During wars and overthrowing evil regimes, people pray. They also fight with might and intellect.

God presence and prayers from many and digging in to the scriptures are a beacon of light shining on many lives. Jesus gives us Hope just ASK Him. This exposure is taking a long time because is is very, very deep. Read Exodus it is a play back of what is happening now. But God won and so he will win again. Suggestion for those who are frustrated put on some great Christian music. Let the words seep into your spirit. Be blessed God has this.

Thank you for this. A great reminder, which is in order as Scripture says, “Encourage each other, build each other up and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Father, you are in charge of all the timing and we are wise to hear Jesus speak to us – “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the father has put in his own power. But you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost comes on you, and you shall be my witnesses…” So Lord, help us mind the things you squarely put in our field of responsibility and leave the timing of that prophetic ‘Day’ to you. When you return, may you find us being your witnesses. Your hands and feet. Help us be salt and light in our neighborhoods and communities. Amen

Help us not to become weary but instead let us be strengthened in our resolve to continue to go forth as mighty warriors in your army. Thank you for hearing our cries to bring down injustice against this generation. Give us our marching orders as we are here to serve you King of Glory!

Maybe most have not revelation, as most pastors do not teach the first and last books of the Bible today. It’s not our kingdom here. God’s judgment has come upon the earth as pastors and the church have become worldly and compromised. Instead of blaming politics as even the apostles did not fight Rome, they called out the false religious teachers. All this interfaith teaching is futile. It’s time we do the same. Kingdom now theology is a farse. God’s kingdom will happen after the tribulation and we should be praying for strength and discernment through all of this. God is not going to a work as He wants us to do the work. Plant a seed of salvation and pray God softens their hearts to recieve it.

I really needed to read this today – thank you. Reminded me “Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9) There was supposed to be a “red wave” and then there wasn’t. Remembering to keep my eyes on Jesus and not my circumstances, or our nation’s circumstances in this case, is so important, or like Peter, I sink beneath the waves crashing around me, when hope and trust in God is sufficient to carry me through and will carry our nation through if we do not give up/cease praying – but rather pray all the more- believing our God is faithful and His timing is perfect. Lord, as we wait on You help us to be obedient and busy with Your work as we wait to see the fruit of our labor in You. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

A word of great blessing, Kim, and, as a supporter of your ministry, I recommend all to sign up for your daily inspirational writings (I named them, daily desserts before breakfast). Our hope is in Him and He is always working whether we see it or not. After all, He is Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts, so how can He lose, or we lose. Thank you, Kim, you are a Word woman and the Word always changes things.
The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4

I just want to say thank you for this encouraging message. Sometimes you feel like nothing is changing for the better, but praise God…. “Little by little” God’s bringing forth His plans and purposes in the earth.

The little by little verse does not apply here as that was given for the conquest of the land by Israel who was dispossessing the wicked Canaanites. Our situation is that of being dispossessed unless our repentance and restoration to purity satisfies the Lord. I do not see a desperate Church. If we were hungry for His presence rather than just our own well being we would be ready.

    Hi, Linda, seems like the Little By Little DOES exactly apply here, as we who are grafted in dispossess today’s wicked Canaanites, little by little.
    I do agree with you, regarding our own hearts and need, but I see God working on that, as well.
    A broken and contrite heart, He will not despise; and, as the Light of the world exposes more of the darkness, I believe that is what He is turning in our own hearts: more brokenness and contrition for what we have allowed.
    God alone is the One who can make springs in the desert, and put to nothing the evil works of wind and confusion – in His perfect time.
    Rejoice in the Lord always!

Make no mistake- God is on the move in our nation . Our biggest problem, is, we live in a microwave society, where everything is supposed to happen immediately. This is troublesome, as it leads to unbelief, which is a deception of the enemy. We need to stay focused on God, and what He IS doing, little by little. Perhaps He is moving in this way so that we have gratitude. He makes ALL things beautiful in His time. Thank You, Jesus.

While reading this article, I felt the little by little is also for us individually. It’s He and us driving out the enemies in our life little by little so we can come into full trust and rest. Little by little. Endurance faith

Which darkness and evil is being uncovered? Surely, it can’t only refer to the mainstream media and Dems (which this article claims) because evil is also being uncovered in the conservative media and GOP too. This includes Trump’s worsening legal cases (eg companies already convicted of tax fraud), pro-Trump prophecies by evangelical prophets that have proved false (a capital offence in Mosaic law) , and conservative media facing defamation lawsuits for calling others liars when they were reporting falsely themselves. Remember Jesus’ words to Pharisees: they see the speck in others people’s eyes but not the log in their own eyes which makes them hypocrites. In fact, in most of these cases, the mainstream media and the Dems are being vindicated especially about their negative view of Trump and election denial. So rather than praying for the exposure of the evils of the left, I am also praying for the exposure of the hypocrisy of the right (which is already being answered). Neither the conservatives nor the liberals is the enemy but the spirit of worldliness AND the spirit of hypocrisy

    I think that we have to be careful not to believe everything we read since Satan is the Prince of the Power of the Air and his lies are all over the place and through many media outlets. I believe that this article was written to encourage us to keep praying and was not pointing the finger specifically.
    Just not seeing the mainstream media and dems being vindicated so again I caution you not to believe everything you read. How many times do we need to learn this lesson? The media is not our friend – all they do is lie, misrepresent and fabricate to create fear and drive us away from the truth.
    Keep praying, trusting and believing! God will prevail

Thank you for this article. After the midterm elections and the GA race went downhill, I began to think God had withdrawn His hand from our country and the end times will be getting darker and darker very quickly. The article gave me hope to continue in prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I Thankyou for how you are working in our country and families even when it is so dark all around us!
I pray that you will bring what was evil to light! I pray for our leaders that are doing their best to pursue righteousness. LORD, help them to stand strong!. Give them a backbone of steel not jello when it comes to choosing life and protecting our families from the crazy agenda that is trying to bring our country to its knees.
Thankyou Jesus for hearing our prayer today! You aren’t just a God that parted the Red Sea in ancient times you are a God of today and hearing and answering our prayer today! Amen

During prayer last night, I allowed myself to become distraught and I began to ask why God allowed Mr. Warnock to win again. He interrupted my thoughts and asked if there was a question I wanted to ask. He,!then, downloaded His answer to Job, asked me if I would accept the good and not the bad. He reminded me of His Word in Ezekiel of how He takes no pleasure in destroying the wicked, and how, in Peter that He is not slow as I understand it. I said I guess I didn’t have a question after all. I then remembered Jonah, and I remembered how He has answered many prayers, some in real time. He, then, led me to pray for leaders who appear to be bent on doing evil and I told Him my stomach was turning sour doing so. Finally, He reminded me in the form of a question if I would want to be loved by Him if I were them, and how He causes the rain to fall and the sun to shine on the righteous and wicked alike. I felt better.

Know that the same Spirit who raised Christ from the dead dwells in us as believers. the scriptures are clear, walk by faith, not by what we see around us. Will He find faith on the earth when He returns. Do not grow weary in doing good-overcome evil with good. You are His beloved child! Believe and love others.

The Lords says: “I come to My people in this hour to SHOW them who they REALLY are & what is truly WITHIN them. For IF My people will HONESTLY compare My words in 1 Cor. 13 to what is MANIFEST in their lives, they will SEE that what I have said does not MEASURE up to what is IN them. Yes, there are times that My people DO walk in these things, but i tell you now that THIS is not as I desire, for I said that these things are to BE part of you CONTINUALLY…not just when YOU decide to walk in them. For truly, IF My love dwells WITHIN you as you “say”, you WILL walk IN My love, in ALL your ways, at ALL times! And therein lies the problem…My people walk in THEIR ways, not MINE.

For surely as you will TRULY surrender your hearts & lives UNTO Me, I will do a WORK within you to CONFORM you into the IMAGE of My Son. So many say that they HAVE already done this, yet I tell you now…LOOK at how you respond unto others when in YOUR heart you get frustrated or upset! Look at the response that comes from WITHIN you! Do you respond OUT OF My Spirit of love, or do you react OUT OF the flesh? I ask you this because it is important & needful that you SEE the truth of the way things ARE, so you can come into alignment with My will & My ways.

For I told you that I AM the way, the truth & the life…no one can come unto Me, except thru Me. Yet, so many continue living their own SELF life thinking they have truly come to Me, when in truth, they have only come to Me in the ways that THEY have chosen. I tell you this so you can SEE the way things truly are. I AM looking for a people that have FULLY surrendered unto Me…not those who only offer Me the things THEY desire or when THEY desire to do this! It is VITAL that My people TRULY become My people…NOT a people that is complacent  & compromised in this hour!

How long will it be until My people will truly HEAR the words I say & humble themselves before Me? I am waiting for a true response from My people from THEIR hearts! For the time for My people playing their little religious games has ENDED…it is time to NOW mean business with Me! So many think that they have already done this, but as you will BE honest & look WITHIN your hearts you will SEE that there is still a lot of work needing to be done WITHIN you. For even those who believe they HAVE been liberated & are fully in Me, to a great measure STILL fall short of My desire…they STILL only see things as THEY desire…not as I desire them to see.

For even in those who have left the corrupt religious system that EXISTS in the world today, which people call “the church”, even in these there are those who have not understood the importance of holding fast to My words as I have written them. For truly in My written word I have set up the govt. of My church, as you SAW last week in 1 Cor. 12, yet, still today so many have SOMEHOW cast those words aside, thinking they are no longer needed. But My words are STILL as active & powerful today, as I have spoken them, for the govt that I have setup continues & as I RAISE UP My humbled leaders in this hour I will SHOW the world the TRUTH that is in Me.

I need ALL of My people to understand that they are CONTINUALLY being molded & shaped & being conformed to the image of My Son. This IS a process that continues forward in time & continues UNTIL My people come home to Me. I need My people to understand that whatever maturity THEY have achieved is only a PART of what I will do IN them. This maturity is NOT the final step in My developing WITHIN them…it is only one STEP along the way. I need My people to see that there has come a MINDSET within many that has developed that causes many to think that they have no need of My written words, as I have told them.

Some how they THINK that they have “arrived” & are SO mature that they do not have responsibility or accountability to anyone, when My word says just the opposite! I need My people to see that this is PRIDE…a very dangerous pride! Just because a person has MATURED in an area of their lives doesn’t mean that there is not OTHER areas that STILL need attention for change. My people need to see the IMPORTANCE of what I AM doing in this hour, for there IS a growing number of people who have left the corporate church, as I have shown them the ERRORS there.

This was a GOOD thing, but in the process many of these same people have FALLEN into the snare of the evil one, because they have SHUT OUT much of My written word in the process. I do not want My people subject to the corrupt religious system, so I have called them OUT & those who HAVE heard My voice have left that corrupt religious system. Yet, MANY of these now think that they have do not need to BE a part of My corporate church, as I have ordained it & some how they can just continue as “lone rangers”, not knowing the dangers & problems they are CREATING both within them & unto others!

For I have a TRUE church that exists in this hour & My people need to be SEEKING to be part of what I AM doing…not doing their OWN things! It is time for the church of the Living God to COME together again & to do the exploits that I ordained for them to do. I need My people to CAST OFF the works of darkness & enter into what I am doing this day. Yes, you heard that right…those who have rejected the truth of My true church government have FALLEN into works of darkness, because they are only walking in the light that THEY have chosen to walk IN. I need My people to OPEN their eyes & SEE things as they really are!

It is time for My people to RISE UP & BE My people! A big REASON why My people are so MINIMIZED in this hour is BECAUSE so many have fallen into THIS anti-church mindset, not REALIZING that I DO have a godly church govt that EXISTS today. I have called many OUT OF the corrupt religious system & THESE have fallen to Me IN humility& contriteness & I have molded & shaped them over time for My use. Come to Me, My people & allow Me to SHOW you the way things really are! For I have plans to use My church MIGHTILY in this hour, but those who refuse to hear My words & continue in their SELF obedience of rejecting My words as I share them this day, will come to find that this is EXACTLY WHY they are NOT doing the great “work” that I desire to DO with them.

Because I MUST do the work WITHIN them, before I can do the work THRU them. Allow Me to show you the truth that EXISTS within your hearts & you will SEE that there is a LOT that the enemy STILL has his hands on WITHIN you that NEEDS attention. For as My people will allow Me to open up their understanding to THIS & many OTHER things, My people will SHINE as lights in a dark place & the world will SEE the truth of Me WITHIN them. THEN My exploits WILL explode FROM WITHIN My people & GREAT revival will come forth! For the revival will have BEGUN where it is needed MOST…WITHIN My people. Hear My words this day & do NOT shrink back INTO your OWN thoughts & reasoning…for THESE will only REMOVE you further from My will for this hour.

I love you ALL with an everlasting love & IT IS vital that My people RESPOND unto Me righteously in this hour & allow Me to do a work WITHIN them that will change the CHANGE the world as it is today, into the world that I desire it to BE. Remember…you ARE the light of the world. The world can ONLY walk in the light that you, My people GIVE to it. Look at the world & you WILL see what truth REALLY exists WITHIN My people. My people have a great NEED of change, yet so many REFUSE to see that there is ANY need of change within them. Allow Me to open YOUR hearts to see the TRUTH as it REALLY is & you will not be disappointed, says the Lord!”

Thank you Father for giving us wisdom and strategies to bring down the giants in our midst. Thank you for knitting South Korea to North Korea, for multiplying believers in the midst of persecution. Thank you Father for giving us Your Word that shows us the importance of Truth, so we can flee darkness, embrace and feast on Your Word and truly be Light in this World. Keep our eyes on You Lord and deliver us from those who wish to demoralize and deceive this nation. Thank you for the courage to do the right thing, when every worldly voice tries to get us to shrink in fear. Thank you for preparing a table before us in the presence of our enemies so that we are nourished with Your body and Your blood which sustains our very life and strengthens us when we grow weary or weak, and helps us to take up our cross daily. Thank you that your food was to do the will of Father in heaven and we are nourished as we too are obedient to Your will. Thank you for the harvest of new believers, thank you that the blind are seeing, the deaf are hearing, the lame are walking, and the sick are healed in Your Name. We give you all the praise! We decree that Your Kingdom is come, Your Will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

I am reminded we are to set our affections on things above and not on things on the earth. God’s ways and thoughts are so much higher than ours. It is by His knowledge the depths are broken and the clouds drop down their dew. HE created the earth by HIS great power and outstretched arm and there is nothing too hard for HIM. HE is able to do far and exceedingly more than we can ask or think. Do we see what HE sees? Do we hear what HE hears? He who has ears to hear, let him hear what the SPIRIT is saying to be the church.
