WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE?
WHAT A ONE PARTY RULE MAY MEAN
WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST?
PELOSI LEADING EFFORT TO REMOVE TRUMP IMMEDIATELY
FULL LIST OF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO VOTED FOR OBJECTING TO ELECTORAL...
WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE?
Who has believed (trusted in, relied upon, and clung to) our message (report) [of that which was revealed to us]? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been disclosed. (Isaiah 53:1 AMP-C)
The prophet Isaiah spoke these words, as he prophesied of the suffering and exaltation of the coming Messiah to the people. According to the Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary, the Jews rejected Isaiah’s message of a suffering servant. They couldn’t accept a king who would be humiliated. They wanted a king who would rule and reign. As I thought on this verse, I couldn’t help but think how fitting this scripture is.
In the aftermath of the election and everything that has since followed, there is a pervading sense of gloom and hopelessness. I’ve had several family members tell me they’ve lost hope altogether and they will not vote again because it’s pointless. Between hearing these things, seeing prophets and prophetic people under attack, seeing the growing division, I feel overwhelmed.
As a Christian, I have believed the report of the Lord. I believe the trusted prophetic voices who believed the Lord spoke to them about Trump’s re-election shared in faith. Several have apologized and I commend them for having such integrity and humility to do that. Some are taking a stand in faith, believing in what God has shown them and I also commend their courage and faith in the midst of online harassment. This is not about who’s right and who’s wrong. If our eyes were on a political party to save America, then we completely missed it altogether.
This verse in Isaiah 53 is two-fold. After Isaiah asks “who has believed our message/report?,” the second half of this verse reveals another question. “To whom has the Lord’s powerful arm been revealed?” The arm of the Lord is connected to his power and deliverance. We first hear of this is Exodus when the Lord delivers his people from Egypt.
So the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with great terror and with signs and wonders. (Dt 26:8)
He brought Israel out of Egypt. His faithful love endures forever. He acted with a strong hand and powerful arm. His faithful love endures forever. (Ps 136:11,12)
For by their own sword they did not possess the land, And their own arm did not save them, but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence, for You favored them. (Ps 44:3)
This verse reminds us that it was not the Israelites who delivered themselves. Their swords and weapons didn’t save them. It was the arm of God that brought deliverance. We in our own strength, in our best days, will never accomplish what only God can do. We must remember that.
Jesus would later recite this verse from Isaiah in the Gospel of John because even though he had performed many miracles the people still denied him (John 12:37,38). After Jesus preached this verse from Isaiah it says “Many people did believe him,” however they stayed silent due to fear of persecution.
It takes faith to believe God’s report in the face of uncertainty. We know that faith comes by hearing the word of God. To those whose faith is in the Lord, who continue to trust and place their hope in him, they will see his power and deliverance. They will see the arm of the Lord revealed according to his Word.
After Jesus preached this Scripture from Isaiah, he offered the crowd a choice to believe his report or reject it.
Jesus summed it all up when he cried out, “Whoever believes in me, believes not just in me but in the One who sent me. Whoever looks at me is looking, in fact, at the One who sent me. I am Light that has come into the world so that all who believe in me won’t have to stay any longer in the dark. If anyone hears what I am saying and doesn’t take it seriously, I don’t reject him. I didn’t come to reject the world; I came to save the world. But you need to know that whoever puts me off, refusing to take in what I’m saying, is willfully choosing rejection.” (Jn 12:44-50 MSG)
Every day we have a choice about whose report to believe. Will you believe in faith what the Lord has spoken to you? Will you believe the Scriptures he has been speaking to you? Will you stand on his promises? I choose to stand on the promises of God. I choose to stand on his Word. I choose to stand in faith. Because I have made that choice I am being mindful of the reports that I’m hearing. They seem to be coming in from every side. There’s strife, there’s debating, name-calling, mockery, conspiracies everywhere. This is why we must keep our eyes fixed on the Lord right now.
The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said,
“Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. (Is 8:11-13)
What we need now is the truth and there’s only who is worthy to bear that title. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (Jn 14:6)
Lord, we come to You and ask that You would strengthen the weary. Hope is not lost because our hope is in You Lord. Bring healing to a hurting nation and let us fix our eyes on You. Your Word says that we lift our eyes to the hills where our help comes from. Our help comes from the Lord. Oh that You would comfort your people with your Holy Spirit who is called the helper. Your people, this nation, we need Your help. We need Your truth and Your Word says the Spirit of truth will guide us in all truth and tell us what is to come (Jn 16:13). Give us wisdom and discernment to know what to do next, how to pray, how to respond to the needs around us. Guide us by your Holy Spirit. I believe Your report, Your Word, Wour promises and I thank You Lord that as I stand in faith I will see Your mighty hand and outstretched arm revealed. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The enclosed video with Pastor Steve Cioccolanti is encouraging n enlightening. May seem winded at 1st, but continues with few people speaking of evidence and what to pray for moving forward.
where did the video of Italy changing votes from trump to biden go? this isn’t right
Thank you Gloria, very much needed! And after you have done all, STAND!
Thank you so much Gloria! I’m blessed to have read this article with tears and overflowing joy. I will go on to pray for all of its as Intercessors.
Jesus is alive!
With God all things are possible. Thank you Gloria.
Awesome word, Gloria!
Gloria, I agree with & decree your prayer also. Thank you for your Godly response & article!
Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His Might ! Be Strong and of good Courage! Be Blessed in His Holy Name!
Thank you for your encouraging and uplifting words and scriptures to help during these challenging times.
This word is from Chris Yoonhttps://youtu.be/WHxASRawu5w
Amen! This is one of the best words I have heard!
Awaken people of God! Watch this encouraging video with great traveling music: https://drcharlieward.com/juan-o-savin-the-called-makings-of-a-perfect-day/
I choose to believe the Good report of the Lord. When nothing else seems just or reasonable, this is where I go. People are subject to change, but He never changes. May He pour out Holy Spirit upon this nation abundantly. It is our only hope!
Thank you for sharing this truth. It’s a great reminder not to believe what we hear and only 1/2 of what we see. Jesus will give us the wisdom we need. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s probably not. I’m excited to see what the Lord is unfolding. Thank you for this website so we can know truth.
Thank you for those powerful words. Will we take it to heart. This not time to quit! I m sorry for those who give freedom away because things did not go their way. God has more for us…BETTER. He cares more for us than circumstances. God does not change circumstances to give us joy. He works on the heart. Quote unknown.
Yes, I choose to stand on God’s promises and His report. It was a blow and disappointment. My husband Nd I were distraught. We called out to the Lord and He brought peace. We know He sees the beginning from the end. Thank you for the encouragement! Blessings!
I thank you again for your encouraging words and scripture. I am grateful to Abba Father for blessing you with words of encouragement: “…what is good for necessary edification that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29
Ameen, Gloria, Amen!! What God started, He will finish.
Amen dear sister! I agree with your words and prayers! Thanks for sharing them with us to bring hope and encouragement.
On Friday I spoke with no one so I would not discourage or state falsehoods. What I have come away with is not to want an answer from Abba, our God, but to understand better the promises and directions/wisdom/guidance He has already given. Am I all together today – not really. But I have Shalom. I have that Shalom because I TRUST HIM. I will go from there. Shabbat Shalom fellow believers in the MOST HIGH GOD, in JESUS CHRIST and in the HOLY SPIRIT: Adonai!
Thank you for your honest words of truth and scripture to back it up. There’s a lot to take in and deal with these days. My biggest problem is those who say “suck it up and get on with it. This “must” be God’s will and we must live with it. He’s decided and it’s over. In a few months we’ll get use to this change and back to normal.”
They always end with “back to normal.” I don’t see things to be that simple in this administration. Being comfortable is what got us to this point in the first place.
Lord Jesus – Hope of the world! Bring glory through Your people. Help us to stand in FAITH and not fear.
Amen I agree with all the scriptures given.
Remember the battle happens in the spiritual first, then the natural.
The Lord God is a man of war, in battle God always overcomes Exodus 15:3
I trust in the Lord my God! He is with President Trump. Hallelujah
AMEN most precious Gloria. Thank you. This morning and last night I’ve been so stirred, I felt like we are all so naïve to believe we (Trump supporters) were the entire mob. BLM and Antifa were let into the Capital by the Capital Police. Who directs the police in Washington D.C. ? It is the mayor known to support the the communist BLM and Antifa. God sees all. So now I lift that mayor to You our God. May her eyes and heart be opened to You and turn from evil. May she find salvation in the great work You have wrought on the cross. And may we as believers be gifted by You for discernment . If I had been there I might have followed the mob in too. They then had a mixed group which we couldn’t decipher who was who. A precious and unarmed Air Force lady, a Trump supporter was shot in the neck and later succumbed to her wounds. May You, our God be with her family and friends in their sorrow and give them solace. I ask also that the policeman who shot her find Your great salvation. Amen
Will you believe?
We shall believe
The report of the Lord!
…His report says
[we are] healed!
His report says
[we are] filled!
His report says
[we are] free!
His report says VICTORY!!!”
-“Whose Report Shall You Believe” by Ron Kenoly
“I pray that out of His glorious riches [God] may strengthen you with power
through His Spirit in your inner being” – Ephesians 3:16 NIV
Lord, let the grace and unmerited favor of God rest upon the USA like a pleasant aroma. Use the USA in a mighty way to start a great revival that sweeps across the world!
thank you Jesus, when i don’t know how to pray, you give me direction thru the words of prophets thru out the US. Thank you for the intercessors that our making their voices heard thru IFA, Elijah List and more avenues. May we continue to sound the trumpets for the cause of God’s Glory! Open our eyes Lord, and let us see the work YOu are doing, in our midst!
Thank you Gloria for your encouragement and looking to scripture for our guidance. Grateful for an encouraging podcast to follow.
Thank you for sharing this article. It really gave me encouragement this morning. I have signed up for Gloria’s Poscast. One can never hear too much of God’s word and truth. Thanks again and God Bless.
Thank you for that beautiful prayer.
I am in total agreement with the truth Gloria has shared.
When Jesus commissioned “the twelve,” He warned them of persecution but told them not to worry about how to speak… the “Spirit of the Father” would be speaking through them…TRUST the Word of God. He also told them not to fear. All things covered will be uncovered as well as those things hidden. Nothing happens without the Father’s consent…TRUST HIM.
“I believe Your report, Your Word, Wour promises and I thank You Lord that as I stand in faith I will see Your mighty hand and outstretched arm revealed. In Jesus’ name, amen.” Amen and Amen!
Definitely agree we are under God’s judgment because of aborting babies. There will be more judgment if this does not stop. Good commentary n I appreciate clarity on what happened that day. WE MUST WAR ON OUR KNEES. The battle is the Lord’s.
Blessed is the man
you discipline, O Lord, the man you teach from your law; You grant him relief from days of trouble, until a pit can be dug for the wicked.
This is in today’s reading and I don’t want to read into it something that might not be there from the Lord, but perhaps it is what is going on in the life of President Trump. Is God at work in his heart and mind at this time, humbling him and bringing him to a place of submission to God alone while the pit is being dug for the wicked? These are comforting thoughts And I say “AMEN” to them.
I’m believing that what the Lord spoke He will bring to pass. As they faced the Red Sea it looked like the end but we all know it was a beginning. As it was then so is it today. God would not speak through so many prophets what He wants to come to pass and not fulfill the word spoken. Gird up your inner man and be steadfast. Still. And stand strong of good courage. Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for and the EVIDENCE of things not yet seen. That’s why it’s called faith. God has a Trump card and He’s not finished with America. We are chosen for a calling to reach the nations and we need freedom to pray. To work and make money to invest in this great awakening. He is setting the stage for a great awakening and President Trump is His choice to take back that governmental mountain. Shout to the Lord with a heart of praise and a voice of triumph.
An excellent word, sister. It’s a sad day when we will believe the reports of deceptive news reporters, and liberals who do not believe in God, rather than to believe God’s prophets. It is not too late for God to intervene. There are many who need their faith strengthened, and surely all who read your comment will be blessed in the Spirit.
Thank you for writing this. All of it is so true. Unfortunately, I am one who has said, this is a conspiracy, and I believe your article was a confirmation from God on what I am to say, act and behave.
I, too, have said that. And this verse readt in my regular Bible study. I also was convicted of this and am learning to trust and obey.
Praise our Lord who does not change. Thank You for responding. I’m on a Illinois prayer call and they help me stay in faith too. I am on Give Him 15 app on my phone and both Dutch and TIm Sheets are used by Holy Spirit to strengthen and encourage me. There is a River,,,,and we are all in a stream somewhere that is flowing together to create this living water. 💝
We do not trust in man. We cannot trust the media. Our trust is in God and His Word alone, the only Truth we can rely on. Lord, make us faithful and obedient to Your Word. Encourage us with Your promises. Instill hope and peace in those who are growing weary. We praise You, our loving and sovereign God!
AWESOME WORD! Great article and prayer. I too choose to believe God. He has never lied, been mistaken, or lost a battle – He is trustworthy. He does not fail!
Please protect us lord God I pray! Project our children and grandchildren. In Jesus name amen.
Lord my faith, hope and my love is in You. Father You are my salvation and anyone else. I trust in You my God. May we rely on You more than ever before. Please protect Your children. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
I have to believe this turmoil is all part of God’s plan. To us it might seem as though things are falling apart but we know He is in charge in fact Isaiah 55: 8-9 tells us, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” It’s so hard to make sense of it but our job is to keep our eyes on the Lord, trust in His wisdom, goodness and atonement, and act in accordance with Biblical principles. For those of us who mourn the loss of patriotism and self discipline it’s easy to become fearful of the future but I guess this is the time to faith our fears. Thank you to Gloria Robles for redirecting us to the only One whose report matters.
Anybody seen this? Appears real.
Says Barack Obama is caught.
I pray this is the miracle-the undeniable piece.
Tammy, I just listened to the audio of this story. The information seems to be true. Is this why the President was rushed back to the White House from Maralago? They said it was probably something big. Could this be it? Hoping if it is, the info comes out soon. All in God’s timing, of course.
Anyone seen this?
Oops sorry I clicked “report comment” accidently and did not mean to comment twice.
We must be in prayer for God’s divine hand of protection over Sidney Powell and others fighting for truth.
This post looks real to me.
Hold on brothers and sisters do not falter. Stay strong and steadfast like the days of Queen Esther’s rule the Lord will intervene where HIS people are concerned.
If your unfamiliar
The clandestine order went out to essentially eradicate all Jews in the kingdom when Queen Esther( a Jewish born woman herself- who had recently been shown favor by the king) was told about the order in a secret letter by her
He knew she might feel scared or helpless too but he reminded her that Perhaps she was born to be Queen for such a Time as this.
She understood the stakes so she requested a 3 day pray and fast among the Jewish people of the kingdom so the Lord would know of not only know their faith in HIM but see their conviction so he might intervene.
By the end of the story the man who created the underhanded eradication order hung of the very same gallows her adopted father was to. So absolutely she was born to be Queen for such a time as then.
The Lord God has a mighty plan and even a mightier hand.
The whitehouse WILL be a beacon of liberty and hope for the rest of the world to follow. HIS will will be done. Amen!
Hope has a name Immanuel, Yeshua-Jesus Christ of Nazareth!
Ann Graham Lotz provides the following scriptures assembled together as a testimony to our righteous God:
You have given a banner to those who fear You,
that it may be displayed because of the truth.
The-Lord-Is-My-Banner. § When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners! § The Lord has revealed our righteousness. Come and let us declare in Zion the work of the Lord our God. § We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. § Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. § The captain of their salvation.
My brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. § [Be] valiant for the truth. § Fight the Lord’s battles. § “Be strong, all you people of the land,” says the Lord, “and work … Do not fear!” § Lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! § For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
