Intercessors Arise for America!

As the testimony trial against Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh occurs today, I urge you with all assertion to press in and intercede for this event. There is great enemy opposition moving in the midst of every part of Kavanaugh’s election into office. I believe that this is a pivotal moment in the course of what is to come for the nation of America and that what happens next will reveal the course of what our nation is headed towards. While praying about these matters this morning, I very clearly heard the Lord say,

“Like a shooting star, a flame of righteousness, carrying the favor of Joseph, I have established Brett Kavanaugh to be one that throws down dark pillars of impurity; leading the way into My ways. Every shadow fears his election and opposes it because the shadows will be utterly squashed under his feet! Demonic principalities that have laid in power for 45 years are trembling for their grip of death is about to be broken in shattering proportions! 

They are grasping at straws, hoping to gain any attempt of the upper hand, but they shall truly fail and suffer a miserable, embarrassing defeat! Where they attempted to smear the character of My chosen change agent, just like with Joseph, they will not succeed for what I establish WILL take power and precedence over every lie. Like a child throwing a temper tantrum over not getting its way, so too will they be put in their rightful place. Every lie will be exposed and because I am sovereign and My hand is upon the government and whole of America, I will hold in contempt every distraction and opposition to My purposes coming to total fruition. Just like with Joseph, it will only drive Me to thrust Kavanaugh into a greater place of influence, favor, and power. 

Nothing can stop what I am doing for America is Mine and I am raising up a company of warriors that will stand up and stare the unjust, demonic spirits in the face and expel them from the courts of this nation.

AMERICA, IT’S NOT OVER YET! WAKE UP CHURCH!

Wake up to your purpose in this life! Join together in unison and ransack enemy territory and drive out demonic forces ahead of you. If you will awaken to the times and take hold of the authority given you by My Spirit, I will march in like a Mighty Warrior and raise a battle cry that THE TIME FOR ASSAULT ON THE ENEMY IS NOW! I will lead the way into purging, clearing the path, and ushering you into a new day of release into your destiny as a NATION OF LIFE AND LIGHT!”

I truly believe in my spirit that the demonic force that has been operating for 45 years in America through Roe v. Wade is greatly stirred and frustrated at its fate come the election of godly men and women in the high offices of the government of our nation. Every demon in hell is in great opposition against the removal of their vice grip of power in bringing forth the death and destruction of 59 million innocent babies and counting.

It is time for the Body of Christ to wake up from apathy and disconnectedness to the realities of what is taking place. To say that we are not into politics and what is taking place in our governing bodies is the incorrect mindset. We should keep a watchful eye on the occurrences of those who are leading us and governing us as a nation. Isaiah 9:6-7 says, “For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, [He shall rule] on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from that time forward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.” Jesus is the Ultimate Judge over the nations, over His creation.

Join with us in interceding and calling forth the increase of the government of Jesus upon the nation of America! It is our duty as believers and Followers of The Way to rise up and take a stand against injustice and tear down every demonic stronghold within our nation. Until these things come about, the fullness of the releasing of the Third Great Awakening will only be brought forth in portions. Until the shedding of innocent blood is met with divine recompense, we will not see LIFE be restored to America. WE MUST RISE UP AND PRAY!

Joel 2:1-3 (MSG)
“Blow the ram’s horn trumpet in Zion! Trumpet the alarm on My holy mountain! Shake the country up! God’s Judgment’s on its way—the Day’s almost here! A black day! A Doomsday! Clouds with no silver lining! Like dawn light moving over the mountains, a huge army is coming. There’s never been anything like it and never will be again. Wildfire burns everything before this army and fire licks up everything in its wake. Before it arrives, the country is like the Garden of Eden. When it leaves, it is Death Valley. Nothing escapes unscathed.”
V. 6-7 (AMP)
“Before them the people are in anguish; all faces become pale [with terror]. They run like warriors; they climb the wall like soldiers. They each march [straight ahead] in line, and they do not deviate from their paths.”
V. 8-11 (MSG)
“The invaders charge. They climb barricades. Nothing stops them. Each soldier does what he’s told, so disciplined, so determined. They don’t get in each other’s way. Each one knows his job and does it. Undaunted and fearless, unswerving, unstoppable. They storm the city, swarm its defenses, loot the houses, breaking down doors, smashing windows. They arrive like an earthquake, sweep through like a tornado. Sun and moon turn out their lights, stars black out. God Himself bellows in thunder as He commands His forces. Look at the size of that army! And the strength of those who obey Him! God’s Judgment Day—great and terrible. Who can possibly survive this?”

Joel 2:12-13 (AMP)
“Even now,” says the Lord
“Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance], with fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored]; rip your heart to pieces [in sorrow and contrition] and not your garments.” Now return [in repentance] to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness [faithful to His covenant with His people]; and He relents [His sentence of] evil [when His people genuinely repent].”

What If?!?!

What if we really lived like God were the most important thing? 

What if our plan was to seek You first?

What if we really were a house of prayer for all nations?

What if we possessed the land You had given to us?

What if we did what we were designed to do?

What if we threw out the broken format?

What if we got rid of what was not working and sought to know You?

What if we trashed the gimmicks and sought to really know You?

What if You were our priority?

What if we really loved you with our whole heart?

What if we ordered our lives with You first?

What if we ordered our gatherings with You first?

What if we really acted like we needed you?

What if we really wanted you to show up?

What if we expected You to touch us?

What if You were the most important thing in our lives?

What if we lifted You up and watched as You drew all men to Yourself?

What if we fasted and prayed until You showed up?

What if???

What would happen???

John 12:32 (Jesus speaking) “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.” 

Matthew 6:33  (Jesus speaking) “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Mark 12:29-30 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.”

John 15:5  (Jesus speaking) “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

Luke 19:10 (Jesus speaking) for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Power Up!!!

Daily Encouragement –
 Great things will come forth and are coming forth from you and your life as you put Me first. When our relationship is in proper order, everything else will fall into place. 

Things will not be perfect in this world, but I will use you to bring My perfect Kingdom a little more today. 

You hear My words and will hear them a little more clearly every day as you seek to live in obedience. 

You are doing more than you will ever physically see by seeking Me and My Kingdom first.

 Power up in Me!!!

John 15:1-5 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Expand the Horizons

Daily Encouragement – “You must step into all I have for you. It is time to revive dead dreams and bring new life to waning vision. It is time to biggerize the small dreams and visions and bring them into reality. 
 
Expand the horizons of those around you and push them into the great plans and purposes I have for them.
 
 The world crushes dreams and causes My children to lose sight of the greatness of My plans and purposes. What I have for you is always bigger than you think and that is why you need Me.” Eph 3:20
Jeremiah, Man on Fire

Press In to Press On

Belize Day 6 –
Emerging from our shelter we were greeted with an unfamiliar sight.  Trees as large as houses were strewn everywhere. Branches and leaves had been stripped from the trees and scattered on every inch of the ground.  With the welcome morning light, this is what our eyes came upon.  A new world lay before us, somehow similar to the old, but oh so different.
13876686_10210794493317821_8071969261472013854_n
Some of us got to work cleaning up immediately and others went off to sleep in their beds and make sure their rooms were not torn apart.  We had a lot of things get wet in our room and some leaves had blown in, but besides that not much trouble.  The power being out is inconvenient for a lot of people, but just another effect of the storm. We worked all morning to pile branches and leaves. Sometime during the night, Santi had forgotten to move his vehicle to a safe place and it had been partially crushed by a monstrous tree.  The highlight of the morning was when we were finally able to get the tree off the truck and see that it was dented and had some broken windows but was still usable.

Our next task was to clear the downed power lines so that we could get them repaired. Along, the way, we repaired the horse pen while many continued to stack the seemingly endless supply of broken branches and downed trees.  By lunch, most were exhausted and I had to sleep for a few hours.  After a quick nap, I got back to work until dinner when I found out that Sarah was apparently suffering from heat exhaustion and lack of sleep.  I know she worked just as hard as, if not harder than, the majority of the guys and never took a break for water or anything.  She was paying for it. Heidi and I went and prayed for her, and we saw an immediate improvement.  We sat around for about an hour around a candle talking and finally turned in for the night.  This has become a rather interesting real mission trip that most people were unprepared for.
Interestingly, a day or two before I left for Belize, God had spoken something to me during my prayer time.  I was praying and preparing spiritually for the trip and got a strange impression.  It was not even what I would call a word, but I felt as if this mission would be more than what we knew or expected and that we may not come back when we planned on it.  I know now that it was God, but then I had this feeling that this trip was going to be bigger than anyone expected and that something was going to happen that no one planned on or prepared for.  Like I said, it was not clear enough for me to tell the leaders, but it was this nagging thought.  I was unsure of what to expect or if I was just being silly, but I made plans in the physical to have everything taken care of in case I did not come back when I thought I would.
Now, I know that was a word from the Lord.  I doubt any of us would have gone if we had known that we would be in the middle of a hurricane.  However, God was preparing me even before the trip for unexpected things that would take place.  Even on my 28th mission trip, God is still giving me adventure and allowing me to experience something I had never done before and may never do again, endure through a hurricane.
Devotion – 
These are difficult times that we all live in.  God has chosen you to live at this time and He gives you everything that you need to succeed.  The more troubling things that are around you, the closer you need to get to Him!
 Press into Him and He will give you the ability to press on no matter the lack of sleep, uncomfortable conditions, pain, or whatever you may be going through.  
Interestingly, God revealed to me something that I never really could have known or been prepared for, experiencing a hurricane, during my time with Him.  I was close to Him even before the hard times came, and because of this, He was able to prepare me for the unknown hard times to come so that I was ready to endure when the time came.  This demonstrates how important it is to press into Him during the easy times as well as the difficult. 
Challenge – 
Today, ask God to help you to come closer to Him than ever before.  As you do this, look for the encouragement, strength, and life that will come as a result of deepening devotion and intimacy with Him!!!
Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Hurricane a Coming

Belize Day 5 – 13882148_10153636554657751_5191342013350119593_n-copy
 Today, our plans changed with the incoming hurricane.  We still went and delivered school supplies and clothing to the Valley of Peace. We purposefully prayed for each family for healing and life.

I took the team to the first family, where we were greeted by the boy pictured above, and we were able to pray for them and bless them.  It was good to be in this place of ministry once again, but I was sad that we did not get to do more personal ministry.  Even as we finished up giving away the last bags, the rain began to come.  From that point for the rest of the day it has rained with more or less intensity.

Right now, I am sitting in an open air building with a roof surrounded by rain and gushing winds as we wait for the storm to come.  There will not be much sleeping tonight.  We have a safe cement building to head to when things get really bad, but this is a new experience for me.  Never have I been in such a storm, and yet, I still have peace.  In the end, we can do nothing but pray and wait and wait and pray.  No amount of complaining, wishing, or even hard work will cause the storm to pass.  We must wait, trust, and pray for peace and protection.

At this moment, I realize that this is not any different than any other moment in life.  We can do a lot of things, but in the end, we must wait and pray for God to do the work.  We cannot cause anyone to grow and bear fruit, but we can plant the seed, water, and fertilize.  God brings the fruit, and causes us to be safe during the storm.  Storms come and they may howl and blow and seem strong and mighty, but God controls the storm.  He protects us in the storm and brings about good in the midst of roaring rushing wind all around.

Storms will come.  They sometimes surround us and cause us to cower under their intensity and might.  Storms are still a mystery because they are something we cannot control.  However, God is our peace in the midst of the storm.  He protects us and guides us into the best way.  God uses the manner in which we handle storms as a witness to who He is.  We must trust that He is mightier than the storm and obey even when it may not make sense.  His love is more powerful than the raw potential of the strongest storm.  He is our peace!  He is our comfort!  He is the one who brings the best out of the worst.

Challenge –
I challenge you to look at your circumstances in a different way today.  The boss that is unhappy with you, the co-worker that says things that hurt you, the family member that purposefully does things to get on your nerves, look to God and pray for Him to help you respond as He would.  Respond in love, peace, and trust in the worst possible circumstances that God may get the full glory!!!

Step Out & Step Up

Belize Day 4 – 

13901317_10153636550987751_9019624796694889310_n
Today, we traveled to a nearby orphanage.  It was frustrating to me that it took an absurd amount of time to get there even though it was not very far away. Somehow, stopping at the store and going to the bathroom, we lost about an hour, but that is what happens traveling with a team of 40.  I ended up playing Uno with some kids and talking with them the whole time.
After we got back, we went for a swim in the creek and then prepared for the youth service.
We walked back to Jubilee church where 3 hours of awesomeness took place and there were a lot of people who stepped out where they were not comfortable and shared words and prayed for people.  I prayed as a father over a young girl and God touched her to the point of tears.

My brother-in-law Bryson got to share his testimony as part of the service and this touched and ministered to so many people.  I could see the walls breaking down as he shared openly and honestly how God raised him from the dead both physically and spiritually and turned his whole life around to a point where I am honored to call him my brother indeed.
It looks like the weather has a possibility of delaying our flights if things do not change. Interesting with the word that I got before our trip.  God did some amazing things tonight and touched many hearts.

Over and over, one can see men and women from the Bible being called to step out.  Peter stepped out of the boat literally.  In Acts, we see where Paul and His companion heal a man and the people want to sacrifice to them as gods.  Paul stops them and preaches to them and then ends up getting stoned to death.  God miraculously raises him from the dead, and he goes to the next town and does the same thing.  Paul was willing to step out and be obedient no matter what the results.  Succeed or fail, he was going to be obedient to share the good news.  Every time, God asks us to step out and be obedient, He is inviting us to step up into new levels with Him.
What about you?  Will you accept the invitation to step out and step up???

Ask Holy Spirit for the courage to step out in full obedience to Him!  Ask Him to speak something challenging, and then step out and do it!!!
