Why Another Prayer Movement, Lord?

A few years ago, I was given a word that the Lord was going to have me start a new Prayer Movement up and down California and across the nation, and I wondered, Why?  How?  It seemed that there are SO many Prayer Groups already - at every level, so why another one?  and why me (since I don't know very many people)?

But on Monday night I was reading prophetic words from the "Rebirth of a Nation" website (excerpt quoted below) and it ignited a sense in me that my word was not only true, but that this was the time for its fulfillment of starting a Prayer Movement, because the Lord is willing to hear our Prayers still from those who will be truly converted. 

"--Families will be separated, but the families that pray together will be safe. The families that don't pray will be separated. " Many people will be shot and killed because of their belief in me. When He said this I saw a demon crushing a shield and a sword. The Lord explained this vision to me. This vision means that anyone who was killed was not strong enough to defend themselves against the powers of the evil one."    -I asked God if there was any way that this could be prevented? - "It's too late. But tell my people to form prayer groups throughout the country and then maybe this can be prevented.  But these things are beginning to unfold quickly. You must tell people to be devoted and to be converted but I tell you this - that after this tribulation, there will be peace. This country will no longer be based on the laws of men, it will be based on my laws...the Ten Commandments which will be written in every man's heart in this country and the land shall be Holy."-"But tell my people to amend their lives now, before it's too late, because if they don't, they will not be able to survive"

 

The Lord has had me in the wilderness for over 40 years and has taught me about sin (flesh) in myself so that I could understand and recognize how sin works in our flesh.  About a week ago, the Lord let me know that the work He had done in my life qualified my teaching to now act as a Plumbline to the Body of Christ, (and it was immediately confirmed - just 5 minutes later - by another prophecy that came in).  So now I understood why He chose me for this - because I have been "turning from my wicked ways" for so long and can help others to do the same. Through living carefully by every word that proceeds forth from His mouth, He taught me His Ways,  and one of the first important things He taught me is how sin in our lives affects whether God hears us and heals us or not.

 

For several decades, we have been hearing the verse:


2Chr. 7:14 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. 

 

Probably most of us agree with God's Word and have tried to take steps, and while there are many who do pray, not as many have thought about or known how to turn from their wicked ways.  For example, quite a few months ago a man asked me to forgive him if he had done anything against me.  I told him "absolutely" because I had already forgiven him in my heart.  However, many weeks later, the Holy Spirit said to me "It isn't repentance until the actual sins are confessed," - (so that we can be cleansed).

 

In a Series of  Writings, I will be trying to share different aspects of Repentance and steps we must take to be purified, so that we can pray prayers that will bring the healing and the unity He desires for us and requires from us.  Because of the intensity of  the hour and great need of prayer, I will be making this a priority until I feel I am finished.

 

UNCONFESSED SIN

 

I know that in my own walk, He has taken me very deeply into my heart and shown me so much of what was there.  Some of what He showed me was clear to me as I studied His Word, some things were totally hidden.  He said we need to be naked and not ashamed, like Adam and Eve.  This means as we walk with God and always have our hearts open to Him, He can be free to reveal our hearts to us so that we can get delivered.  It has been a trick of our enemy to make us want to hide because we fear exposure and don't want to feel  ashamed or condemned , but in reality, only those who hide will eventually feel ashamed and condemned.  You must settle it in your heart that you want to please God and ask Him to show you your sins.

 

BEING OFFENDED 

 

Psa. 119:165 ¶ Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

 

The Lord orders MANY trials in our lives for the express purpose of  exposing (to ourselves) what is in our hearts.  To be truly Doers of the Word, we will need to "thank" the Lord for these difficulties so that they can work the good God intended.  If we have been practicing obeying to forgive and to love, we will eventually come to the place of never being offended anymore, which is what has happened to me for over 20 years.  But in the meantime, we often are so overtaken by our offense (self righteousness, exalting self above others, judging, wounded, etc.) that the darkness blinds us from the truth that we are sinning against God.  All we can see is the other person's "sin" (so we think) because we have a mote in our eye and can't see Truth.  God's Word is such that if we break any of His laws, it produces a consequence that keeps us bound.

 

1John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth,

because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 

 

TURNING

 

So what do we have to do to "turn from our wicked ways?"  We have to agree and believe that God's word is Truth and choose in our hearts to line up our actions according to His Word; then we have to start responding with our Words and outward behavior - as UNTO THE LORD.  It is not Self Effort that turns us, but Obedience and Submission to the Lord AND His Word in all things.  In the case of being Offended (sin), we must ask the Lord to forgive us (for getting offended) and and ask Him to cleanse us,  then we have to pray for our "enemy", forgive, and do good to him (in the way He shows you).  At first this can cause a royal battle in us as we wrestle against the lies of the devil that "we aren't the one who needs to repent", but if we persist in agreeing with God, over time we will find that "Great peace have I because I love your law and nothing can offend me anymore".

----------

 

I will quickly follow up (as the Lord leads) writing about other Hindering Sins that keep our prayers from being more fruitful, but in the meantime, let's start (or continue) meeting with a group to Pray more - and begin to step up to another level - by keeping in mind to be aware of what's going on in your own heart so that you can confess it if there's anything wrong in your spirit.  Let's stop judging others so the Lord doesn't have to judge us.  

 

Do NOT just tolerate others ("it doesn't bother me") and ignore difficult people ("I'm too busy" or "he has a problem"), but work on your own heart and spirit  until you have agape LOVE for them and PEACE with God and can pray together in a spirit of

true Unity and Agreement (not just saying the words "we agree").  This is what the Lord wants, that we would pray acceptably in spirit and in truth,  and not just pray for "needs" without regard to the condition of our own hearts and relationships.

 

 

Matt. 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask,

it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

 

Phil. 2:12 ¶ Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,

work out your own salvation with fear and trembling

 

 

May the Lord be merciful to all of us, and may God bless you in all your steps of obedience,
