I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would bring Your church back to You. Move in the hearts of the false teachers, Lord, and reignite a passion for Your word and Your guidance.

America is a mess, and the church is partly to blame. Under 40% of pastors have a biblical worldview, and false teaching abounds.

From The Washington Times. American culture is unraveling. Few would argue otherwise. Whether you stand on the right or left of the political divide, we all seem to agree on one thing: Something is desperately wrong….

Pray for your fellow intercessor

 

We are self-refuting at every turn. Those who claim to be tolerant shout that they can’t tolerate everyone else’s intolerance. People waving banners of “love trumps hate” declare that they absolutely hate the people they view to be hateful. Teachers teach that there is no such thing as truth. Preachers preach that they know nothing can be known. Politicians swear to honor and defend a Constitution that they then disparage as an antiquated document of systemic racism, intersectionality and white privilege.

Feminists deny the biological fact of the female. Misogynists march with MeToo. Child advocates advocate for the right to kill children. Proponents of prenatal health are now apologists for perinatal death….

How did we get in this mess?

Dr. Len Munsil, President of Arizona Christian University, recently shared: “A large majority of American pastors do not possess a biblical worldview, according to the latest findings from the American Worldview Inventory 2022 conducted by the Cultural Research Center at ACU. In fact, just slightly more than a third (37%) have a biblical worldview, and the majority — 62% — embrace a hybrid worldview known as Syncretism.”

“Among Senior Pastors, [only] four of 10 (41%) have a biblical worldview. The next highest is 28% among Associate Pastors. Fewer than half as many Teaching Pastors (13%) and Children’s and Youth Pastors (12%) have a biblical worldview. Executive Pastors recorded the lowest level — only 4% have consistently biblical beliefs and behaviors….”

When you see evangelical and Catholic pastors, priests and professors stumbling over themselves to embrace the Marxism of Black Lives Matter, the blatant racism of Ibram X. Kendi, and the elevation of class conflict and collective blame of critical race theory, you know these Christian leaders have elevated Marcuse over Moses and social justice over Jesus….

It has been said that wolves in sheep’s clothing are dangerous, but wolves in shepherd’s clothing are downright deadly. America’s church leaders have become wolves disguised as shepherds….

How did we get here? Look no further than your local church and Christian school. There is about a 60% chance that the guy standing behind the pulpit and podium is a “shepherd” with blood dripping from some very sharp teeth.

How are you praying for the church as it is infiltrated by false teachers? Share your thoughts and prayers below.

Father, turn the hearts shepherds to truth. Give them a hunger for truth. Show them their own sinfulness and their end if they don’t repent of leading the sheep astray. I praise you that you are revealing this so intercessors can pray for them. Save their souls and put them on the righteous path.

Father open the eyes of the spiritually blind. Help them to see wondrous things out of your law in Jesus name. Lead them to your truth. Amen

Father, we pray that you would protect our nation–the United States of America–Israel, and the rest of the world from the globalist scheme of the World Health Organization. Preserve our sovereignty worldwide, Lord, and keep our freedoms, rights, and other liberties safe from those who wish to take them. Annihilate the WHO’s ratified Pandemic Treaty

This article reveals a TRUTH which needed to be spoken! Thank you for standing on the WALL and sounding the alarm for those who have trusted men in pulpits (“trust ye NOT in princes nor the sons of man in whom there is NO salvation! (Psalm 146:3)

In 2019, I repeatedly heard EZEKIEL 34:10–over and over again. The Holy Spirit was SO adamant about it that I threw myself into intense study of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation like never before. A massive amount of Scripture is being diluted, ignored or scraped for banal and comforting messages. We are at the time in human history, in which the Body of Christ needs to rise up as prayer warriors and STAND on the WALL in PRAYER, and humble ourselves and cry our for REPENTANCE like Daniel, Nehemiah, Ezra, Haggai and Esther. Utter dependence on GOD, thru the Messiah He has provided speaking thru the Holy Spirit to cleanse, heal, gird, guard, guide, anoint and equip us is what is NEEDED.

YHWH is serious about not adding to nor deleting or cherry picking our way through HIS IMMUTABLE and POWERFUL WORD. When we come into loving obedience to it, it has amazing power and illumination! Praise The Most High God Whom we serve for His Graciousness in giving us the WRITTEN WORD, a magnificent Messiah in Christ Jesus and the in-dwelling Holy Spirit–the Breath and Fire of the LIVING GOD within us. We need to get BACK to being the sheep who hear HIS VOICE and quit trusting in men, but placing our TRUST in GOD for resolute faith wafts up as the sweetest fragrance before the Throne of Mercy and Grace!

Here are passages which the Holy Spirit has brought to me over and over again and I have brought myself captive to the FULL COUNSEL of the WORD of GOD like the seamless garment of Christ Jesus. I am constantly humbled at the rapidity of how quickly He answers prayers when there is no “looking to the left or to the right”. So humbling! Glory BE to God! He indeed watches over His Word and will bring it to completion/fulfillment! (Jer 1:12)

John 14:21-23, John 12:47-49, Matthew 5:17-20, Hebrews 4:12-13
Deut 4:2, Deut 5:32, Deut 12: 32, Deut 28: 13-14, Joshua 1:7, Prov 30:5-6, Matthew Chapters 12 and 13
Revelation 22:18-19

Beloved brothers and sisters! Let us run the race full throttle and “study to show ourselves approved unto God, workmen that need not be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the Word of TRUTH” (2 Tim 2:15) for “Your WORD, YHWH, is ETERNAL, it stands FOREVER in the Heavens” (Psalm 119:89)
Let us prepare with flaming hearts for Christ to be “the people that KNOW their GOD and do great exploits” (Daniel 11:32) for many in the body will be so confused, but we can try to show them that they have only been mislead and can repent and GOD IS FAITHFUL and HIS CHARACTER IS TRUE to the WORD and we can STAND on the ROCK of Our Salvation–JESUS…for such a time as this!

    God cannot heal our land until America repents.There is so much ungodliness and corruption in this country.
    The Church has become lukewarm
    and culture driven.A great turning away from biblical truth.
    All of America needs to repent if not God’s will be done.
