I felt compelled to write a blog to the remnant….those who are sold out in their hearts for God who are still getting pummeled with one hardship and disappointment after another.
Are you worn out completely….and screaming, “WHERE ARE YOU GOD? WHY AREN’T THINGS BREAKING OPEN AS I THOUGHT? I have burned ten thousand “fires” in Your testings. It FEELS like nothing is happening or changing…..except for the little embers we started together with…..Ahhh!!!”
You may be reading this and have nothing left to go around the mountain one more time….and yet…God is in this. Some of us are missing what is actually happening in our midst because our eyes are so focused on how we believe it should look, feel or be. And the biggest test is endurance….who is going to become the Lord’s Gideon army in the end? This remnant will arise through this all.
Take this last election as an example. There were so many Christians praying for this last election who were pretty disheartened at the results. I had heard many people in the body of Christ stating the results were going to be a “Red Tsunami.” With this kind of “word” being put forth, it can be easy to miss God’s strategy or understand these results because of the perception of how the results should have turned out. Some will now sit on the side lines and take a back seat. Some will be discouraged and quit believing God is working things out. Some will even stop praying. BUT, the remnant will find a way deep in their heart to keep pressing on.
People have been asking me what I thought about the election. I can honestly say it is disappointing for sure to see California continue it’s path in blue. It is disappointing to see the house gaining seats so division is at the table once again. BUT GOD IS AT WORK THROUGH IT ALL. This is the place I sit and rest, knowing that the prophetic scriptures for our nation, and the mercy seat of God MUST prevail in the end.
We are called to find out position in the process and be obedient to Him alone. Our positioning, as it may seem so insignificant to how it can make a difference in the big scheme of things for America IS SIGNIFICANT! Because we are a part of a national body coming together to form ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
We are living in a time that God is working the transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous out, one step at a time. He is going to overthrow the “Mystery of Babylon” with precision timing and mass exposure. This overthrow doesn’t happen in one election. This is a process. And the election results are just one step toward that process in God’s court. Unfortunately, many can’t see it. The test is in the “REST,” trusting that God is working through our prayers, and this answer is a part of His strategy.
SO WHY IS THIS YEAR SO CRITICAL FOR THE REMNANT TO GET THEIR WEAKNESSES IN THEIR SOULS CRUCIFIED IN CHRIST?
I can confirm that this sanctification process is NOT for the weak…BUT, it is necessary for God’s champions He has chosen to run this race for the prize of the upward call (Phil 3). But let’s look at what is happening today:
We can say, without having much faith to believe, that something is about to crack in our nation….that will affects the nations.
We can also say, without having much faith, that a GREAT DIVIDE is being drawn in the sand for all to see clear between good and evil; right and wrong.
We can also say, without having much knowledge, that God seems to be shaking things up.
We can say, without having much understanding, that God is also shaking up the Church.
And finally, we can say, without having much wisdom, that WE BETTER BE READY!
It is going to take an army that are steadfast and able to stand against the wiles of the enemy up ahead; ones that aren’t moved by what they see, hear, or is being done that is unjust and wicked.
WE ARE BEING TRAINED UP IN THE WAYS OF THE LORD. God’s people are FIRST to go through the process that will separate the remnant from the rest of the body of Christ: those that will overcome and believe in God’s Word verses those who will give up and listen to the lies of the enemy and behave like the enemy.
I encourage all to NOT partake in the enemies assassination of our President. Guard your lips from joining the onslaught on negative rhetoric being hurled around. Our job is to pray for those in office, regardless of what we see or hear because God will work His purpose through our prayers and our humility to lean on His leadership.
The battle today is truly in the mind, for it is the soul (mind, will, and emotions) that the enemy is trying to assassinate in this hour. It is the last grip before the Lord’s time to return and we receive our glorified bodies. The soul is the battleground the enemy is after so we are paralyzed to do the work of the Lord in preparation for His return.
“Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).
It’s not a time to isolate and take the hits alone. When you are weak, others are strong. Please don’t hide behind religious walls that keep you isolated so that everyone doesn’t see your weakness. WE ALL LIMP! No one is without a limp. So reach out and pray for the ones God puts on your heart to pray for. They probably need it. And ASK for prayer when you are being pummeled. It’s not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of meekness.
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matt. 5:5).
Since we have entered the Hebrew month of Kislev, which means trust and security, I just want to encourage you to stand against the strongholds that are fierce right now trying to assassinate your soul, and steal from your gift and calling.
The storm is upon us to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH IN A MEASURE WE HAVEN’T HAD TO FIGHT BEFORE. Think of the Hebrews who cried out for a deliverer and Moses came….and yet they still went through greater hardships at times and had to sustain their faith through all the plagues. BUT SUDDENLY, the death plague passed, and the Hebrews were set free.
Be encouraged that you are CHOSEN to be a part of a great moment of history in the making. The “heroes of faith” we read about in Hebrews 11 went through this tough testing time too! You are in a company of champions. Let this identity arise in you this month!
