Your Shecaniah is on the Way!

We are at Day 24 of the 40-Day Breakthrough Fast I felt urged of the Holy Spirit to call coming into the month of May, leading up to Pentecost Sunday on June 9th: Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray! I hope and pray that you are seeing the Heavens opened up in fresh and new ways and that you are seeing a return even now for your pursuit!

IMG_2778If you are just now joining us, I encourage you to read the post linked above to see what this fast is all about and how you can join in! I urge you to join with us even if you haven’t been following along the whole way and are new to this call to fast and pray. If you have been contending for breakthrough in any area of your life or the lives of those around you, salvations, healings, deliverance, fresh commissioning, release into the new season, victory over enemy interference; then this is for you! I heard Him say that in this brief window of time, if we will press in and press through, we will see breakthrough. This is the time where we will see the transition from Promises Revealed to Promises Fulfilled!

It has been almost two weeks since I have posted anything on here; but things have not silenced themselves on this side. I have felt a very strong pull of the Lord to draw away, draw near to Him, and to go low as I ascend. In this time, greater understanding, wisdom, and revelation has been released from Heaven. The Heavens have been opened in new and greater ways; and we are seeing breakthrough in our lives, our finances, and our situations.

To say that there hasn’t been intense warfare in this time is a farce. Nevertheless, Jesus is Lord! The enemy will always come in with opposition when he feels threatened; so if you are facing demonic darts aimed against you in this season, take heart! You’re on the right track!

All too often, the enemy tends to see more than we do, the great breakthrough that we are standing on the cusp of entering into; so he will begin to hit us with an artillery barrage to stop us dead in our tracks and to hinder us from advancing forth.

As I write this, Holy Spirit is releasing great revelation and exposure of the enemy’s tactics. The definition of artillery barrage is this:

“The artillery usually fires at a continuous steady rate, using high explosive or, historically, shrapnel shells. A barrage might be from a few or many batteries, or even (rarely) from a single gun.
Barrage fire may be defensive to deny or hamper enemy passage through an area or offensive to provide covering fire that neutralizes the enemy in an area through or towards which friendly forces are advancing. Defensive barrages are usually static (or standing or box). Offensive barrages move forward in front of the advancing troops, the pattern of barrage movement may be creeping, rolling or block. Barrage fire is not aimed at specific targets, it is aimed at areas in which there are known or expected targets.”

IMG_3939Beloved, DO NOT ALLOW yourself to become battle-worn from the demonic darts, disturbances, delay, and distractions that the enemy is attempting to use to hamper your passage into victory! Whether the warfare has been solely targeted at you or includes those around you, all is intended to distract and detract you from entering your promises. Instead of giving him ground as he proceeds in his offensive; I urge YOU to STAND on the offensive and to press back and press forward! We are not of those who hunker down, cower, and draw back in fear that leads to destruction and death; we are of those who press on and press forward to the FULL salvation, healing, and deliverance of the soul!!!

Hebrews 10:38-39 (MSG)
“But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion. 
It won’t be long now, He’s on the way; He’ll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with Me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won’t be very happy. But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.

Yesterday as I was finishing reading Ezra, Holy Spirit revealed something key to me. In that day, the exiles are allowed to return home to Jerusalem and the Temple of the Lord was being rebuilt. The Lord had been so gracious to allow the remnant of His people to return home in an extension of grace. He gave them favor with foreign kings and nations to bring them safely home. He revived them so they could rebuild the Temple, and repair and restore the city. In spite of all that, chapter 9 brings with it grievous news. As soon as the people entered into their promises, they gave themselves over the intermarriage with pagan nations and directly disobeyed God. Where things seemed to be reordered, the enemy brought in a barrage of distractions.

Ezra’s response was one of great mourning and he sat utterly appalled and shocked at the news for an entire day. He then proceeded in a deep cry and prayer of repentance for the sins of the people. He did not cause the fall of the remnant, but he took responsibility for it. He stood upon the wall and in the gap, unable to stand in His Presence.

In Ezra 10Ezra was still praying, confessing, weeping, and lying prostrate in front of the Temple. A large crowd gathered around him, joined him and wept bitterly as if their hearts would break. As I read this, I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Your current condition is not your permanent position!” Then enters Shecaniah. His name means, “one intimate with Yahweh”. He called out the obvious and the reason for which Ezra was unable to stand: the people had given in to the enemy’s tactics and became distracted and disgraced. He then offered a solution in verse 3: “Let us now make a covenant with our God to divorce our pagan wives and to send them away with their children. We will follow the advice given by you and by the others who respect the commands of our God. Let it be done according to the Law of God.”

Shecaniah then said to Ezra in verse 4:
(NLT) – “Get up, for it is your duty to tell us how to proceed in setting things straight. We are behind you, so be strong and take action.”
(NKJV) – “Arise, for this matter is your responsibility. We also are with you. Be of good courage, and do it.”

When all hope seems lost and you find yourself worn down and unable to stand, God will send a Shecaniah to remind you of who you are and Whose you are; and to get you back up on your feet to take your place!

Verse 5 goes on to tell us that Ezra stood up and demanded those who had handed themselves over to sin that they would do as Shecaniah had instructed; and the people proceeded in obedience.

It is time to stand up and demand a cease fire of the enemy; to command victory, and to no longer give in to what stands in the way of victory and breakthrough. The walls are coming down and no longer will we give in and give way to what opposes our ascent!

If there are areas that we have relented in our offense and ascent, we must come before the Lord in humility and repentance as Ezra did; but when the time comes to stand, STAND!!! DO NOT bow to the breaking tactic of shame and guilt, but PRESS ON AND PRESS THROUGH!!!

perseverance

Hebrews 10:38-39 (NLT)
“‘And My righteous ones will live by faith. 
But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.’ But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.'”

BE STRONG AND TAKE ACTION!!!

I bless you with the strength to stand in offensive warfare to the enemy. In offensive warfare, we have identified the enemy that seeks to destroy us, exposed his strategies, and then infiltrate enemy territory; ready and willing to wage war and defeat the enemy!

I encourage you to read these Scriptures and stand upon them as you ADVANCE!

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (TPT)
“For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.
 We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.”

Ephesians 6:10-18 (TPT)
“Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you. 

Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!
 Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage. Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.

Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart.
 Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.

In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the evil one!
 Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God.

Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all His believers.”

The Breaker is Here!

Yesterday was a day of remembrance. Yesterday was Purim, the day of remembrance for Jews of the deliverance and victory over the death decree issued by Haman to exterminate all of the Jews across the land. God raised Esther up as queen in a kairos moment of time to decree a 3-day fast to seek God for deliverance from Haman’s curse. She risked everything, even her very life, to go before the king on behalf of the salvation of her people. Insert God’s divine favor and providence. The end result: Haman’s hanging, followed by a reversal of the curse on His people, and the destruction of every evil force determined to kill, slaughter, and annihilate them. Complete victory.

We have been in a 40-day world-wide Jesus Fast since March 1 through April 9. Thousands across the nations have taken up a commission of intentional prayer and fasting to see the ending of abortion in our day, and that God would Ekballo a new wave of laborers into the Harvest.

Yesterday marked day 21 of the fast and as I sought the Lord, I felt such a significant breakthrough, even more than I did the day before, being halfway through the fast. In prayer, God reminded me of Daniel 10. Daniel had been 21 days into a fast seeking God for deliverance and salvation for his people. Then God sent a messenger declaring that FROM DAY 1 of his fasting and intentional prayer, his prayer had been heard in the courts of Heaven. FROM DAY 1, angels were commissioned at the declaration and decree of the word of God through his lips. The angels hearken to the Word of God to complete it! (Psalm 103:20) The following three weeks were that of great spiritual warfare in the unseen over the releasing of Heaven’s decree and action. Then God sent a breaker, Michael, to war and defeat the opposing forces, so that His Word would be made manifest.

When I awoke that morning, I had thought it odd that I was completely congested when I had felt fine the night before. However, as He led me back to Daniel, He revealed to me that the congestion I was experiencing was a direct reflection of the congestion in the gateways of the supernatural realm. All demons in hell are in direct opposition to the will of God for the nations coming to fruition. So it is no surprise that there would be a great congestion of demonic forces attempting to block the way of angelic messengers carrying forth the Word and Will of God to the Global Body of Christ. Anything to prevent a Global Harvest from coming to fruition and completion. It is then that He spoke:

My daughter, THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR HAS COME!

I AM HERE TO BRING THE BREAKER, YES, THE HAMMER! A time of great breaking, yes, a smashing will take place. Every stubborn resistance and wall of opposition is coming down and being destroyed NOW!

No longer will there be continuous road blocks severing the connection to total Kingdom access; but there will be UNENDING ACCESS in the days to come. I HAVE COME TO BE THE RECONCILIATOR to what was once broken and disjointed. I have come to BREAK OPEN THE PORTALS that have become blocked. No longer will it be said, “the way is blocked!” UNDEFILED CONNECTION! I have dispatched My Messengers, My Burning Ones, to clear the path and make it ready! All congestion is breaking off RIGHT NOW!!!

Throughout the day, I experienced total breakthrough and victory over every enemy attack that I experienced. THIS is what God wants to do. He wants to be the breaker of every yoke, every attack, every prison door, every shackle, every opposition. The Breaker comes when we fast! He can’t help but to respond to the hunger that is released! Isaiah 58 is evidence of this.

Fasting is a gift from God in that as we give Him the gift and offering of ourselves that He would be glorified through our sacrifice, praise, and obedience through fasting; He returns a great eternal reward back to us that not only affects us personally, but fasting literally shifts the spirit realm over nations!!! Fasting is an act bigger than ourselves. 

Isaiah 58:6-7 (AMP)
“[Rather] is this not the fast which I choose, to undo the bonds of wickedness, to tear to pieces the ropes of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free and break apart every [enslaving] yoke? Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into the house; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not to hide yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?”

Isaiah 58:8-12 (TPT)
“Then My favor will bathe you in sunlight until you are like the dawn bursting through a dark night. And then suddenly your healing will manifest. You will see your righteousness march out before you, and the glory of Yahweh will protect you from all harm!
Then Yahweh will answer you when you pray. When you cry out for help, He will say, ‘I am here.’ If you banish every form of oppression, the scornful accusation, and vicious slander, and if you offer yourselves in compassion for the hungry and relieve those in misery, then your dawning light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will turn into noonday splendor!
Yahweh will always guide you where to go and what to do. He will fill you with refreshment even when you are in a dry, difficult place. He will continually restore strength to you, so you will flourish like a well-watered garden and like an ever-flowing, trustworthy spring of blessing.
Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundation laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.”

Daniel 10:12-14 (AMP)
“Then he said to me, ‘Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was standing in opposition to me for twenty-one days. Then, behold, Michael, one of the chief [of the celestial] princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision is in regard to the days yet to come.'”

For Such A Time As This

About a week ago, I wrote two posts sharing what the Lord was saying about the newly released bill mandating abortion until birth in New York called, Salvation Through a Babe and What Will Reverse the Curse on America?. If you have not read them, you must. I believe you will find the answer to America’s crisis, prayer and intercession strategies, awakening for the Body of Christ, and practical action to combat the demonic principalities behind what we see in the natural.

God does not speak His Word and His heart for it upon fall to deaf ears; He wants all to hear the Truth and to respond accordingly. God is not silent about the happenings in the earth and among His people; He is revealing His heart to those who are humble and willing to seek Him in the secret place.

180124-holocaust-survivors-nazi-soldiers-01

One horror of the Holocaust. The number of murders from abortion far exceeds the number of people murdered during the Holocaust.

Roe v. Wade passed 46 years ago legalizing abortion in America and the consequences of it are nothing short of devastating. It is much like the decree of Haman that went out in all of Susa demanding the complete extermination of all Jews in the day of Esther; and like Hitler’s demand that Jews cease to exist with the Holocaust in more recent times. We see even in Biblical history that the enemy set out to destroy all infants and babies in an attempt to kill Moses, whom God would raise up to deliver Jews out of slavery in Egypt; and most importantly is the attempt at ending the life of our Savior, Jesus. King Herod, under the influence of satan, ordered the murder of all babies and toddlers in and around Bethlehem to prevent Jesus from growing to carry out His purpose of establishing His unending eternal government, saving all of mankind, and restoring what was broken when Adam and Eve fell in the garden. The events and people change, but the demonic principalities are still the same. No matter how bad it looks or gets, God still has the final Word and He always wins.

Esther 4:1-3 (NLT)
“When Mordecai learned about all that had been done, he tore his clothes, put on burlap and ashes, and went out into the city, crying with a loud and bitter wail. He went as far as the gate of the palace, for no one was allowed to enter the palace gate while wearing clothes of mourning. And as news of the king’s decree reached all the provinces, there was great mourning among the Jews. They fasted, wept, and wailed, and many people lay in burlap and ashes.”

Mordecai had received an edict issued by King Xerxes, influenced by evil Haman, decreeing the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of all Jews 11 months from the date of its issue, Passover (ironically the same day Jews from all provinces came together to celebrate their liberation from slavery in Egypt unto freedom through Moses’ obedience.) Haman had an obsessive hatred of Mordecai and his Jewish lineage; and his hatred only deepened when Mordecai refused to bow down and worship him like the rest of the province was ordered to do. Feeling the desperate pressure of impending doom, Haman thought he would triumph over his enemy by wiping them out completely. From appearances this seemed to be a racial war unto genocide; however, it’s true source was spiritual battle of good v.s. evil; death v.s. life. This is the truth behind the abortion agenda.

Mordecai’s response is one that we as the Bride of Christ should have when laws are proposed or passed declaring the destruction, slaughter, and annihilation of God’s innocent, His Little Ones. His mourning and deep anguish was not hidden or pressed down to save face; it got ugly and was not a pleasant sight. He could have hidden in his home and wept in loneliness, yet he took his despair right to the king’s gate and made his undignified response known.

 

I must ask a self-analyzing question: When receiving news of the latest appalling laws disregarding the sanctity of life for His babies, have you ugly cried before the Lord and man and allowed even a glimpse of the anguish of God’s heart to touch you and move you unto action? Have you made your voice known in opposition and truth? If not, I strongly encourage you to go before the Lord and ask Him to search your heart for anything out of order that may have hardened your heart, that may have transformed empathy into apathy. 

We see the Jews fasted, wept, and wailed in mourning. They did not need to be told to do any of these things. It became a natural response, recognizing their dire need of a Savior to step in. That morning coffee or lunch at a restaurant no longer took precedence over seeking His face like never before. They got back to God’s Word in Isaiah 58. (I must interject the narrative and also state that the Jews had been exiled long enough at this point that they had become assimilated into the Persian culture to the extent that most people no longer knew Jew from Gentile. Their very own queen was evidence of that. It was a secret of divine appointment that God would place a Jew as queen over a Gentile nation.)

V. 4 (AMP)- “When Esther’s maids and her eunuchs came and told her [what had happened], the queen was seized by great fear. She sent garments to clothe Mordecai so that he would remove his sackcloth, but he did not accept them.”

Esther was deeply distressed, seized by great fear (fear of man) in just hearing of her cousin’s behavior. She sent him clothes to put on to cover the distress he, himself, was displaying before the world. I will be bold enough to propose that Esther’s response is a reflection of much of the Bride of Christ today. She spent her days within the confines of the walls of her governance (to us, the church), oblivious to the reality of judgement and doom taking place all around her. When hearing of the voice, her blood-relative, wailing in the streets, she intended to silence his voice to keep appearances up and put on a false perception that things were not falling apart. Perhaps much of The Church today is like Esther, failing to fulfill the totality of our God-given governance in The Kingdom of God to overthrow the kingdom of darkness. Perhaps we have wasted too much time catering to comforting the world, coddling our own comforts of idolatry and perfecting passivity.

In verses 5-12, Esther’s response to Mordecai when he sent word to her of the edict, demanding that she go to the king and plead for the salvation and deliverance of her people was one of excuse motivated by fear. She believed that silence was more profitable for her own salvation. I propose that she had become so isolated within herself and from the king that she began to believe the lie of the enemy that she had no voice; that her petitions would fall to the ground as would her head.

Beloved, DO NOT fall into this deception! YOUR VOICE COUNTS!!! BE MOTIVATED BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD, NOT THE FEAR OF THE ENEMY AND MAN!!! It’s time to throw out excuses!!!

V. 13-14 (MSG)- “When Hathach told Mordecai what Esther had said, Mordecai sent her this message: ‘Don’t think that just because you live in the king’s house you’re the one Jew who will get out of this alive. If you persist in staying silent at a time like this [since you did not help when you had the chance (AMP)], help and deliverance will arrive for the Jews from someplace else; but you and your family will be wiped out. Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.’”

I have heard the argument a number of times that someone living a holy life in this land is separated from the repercussions of the blood-stained soil of this land, from the judgement coming. Mordecai addressed this head on with Esther. She was deceived into thinking that just because she dwelled within the king’s home and was ‘his bride’ that she would be exempt from the judgement coming. Silence ushers in divine retribution (Ezekiel 33:16-21)

Beloved, silence is not an option to God. He is going to move and bring salvation and deliverance to our nation at some point in time; but we will be left out of the salvation if we as His Bride and His Church abandon our posts in this great war. Under military criminal code, the maximum penalty for desertion during a declared war is the death sentence. We are in a war right now and the enemy is pulling out all demons and weapons in his arsenal to ensure his edict withstands opposition. It is time to go all in and recognize that we were created and positioned for such a time as this. DO NOT ABANDON POST!!! You are only on the winning side when you rise up to your post, press in and forward fearlessly, refusing to back down to perdition (Heb. 10:39)

V. 4:15-17 (AMP)
“Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, ‘Go, gather all the Jews that are present in Susa, and observe a fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids also will fast in the same way. Then I will go in to [see] the king [without being summoned], which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.’…”

It is time to fast. I understand the cringe that must’ve gone up some spines when saying that; but it’s necessary. As Americans, we like to eat. America as a whole is fat. Fat on food, comforts, self-indulgence and idolatry. It’s time to cut off the fat. God made it clear in Isaiah 58 that the kind of fast He wants is one that breaks the chains of the oppressed, breaks bonds of wickedness, shatters the yoke, caring for orphans, widows, and the fatherless. It is only then that our light will shine forth bringing a new dawn, righteousness preceding us, and the Glory of the Lord on its heels. It’s then that He will hear our cries and answer us. We must have an unrelenting ‘all or nothing’ mentality!!! This is LIFE OR DEATH.

I encourage you to read the word the Lord gave for 2019: 2019: It’s All About Righteousness. I saw a great and mighty army arising and taking up their weapons to recover what had been lost and forgotten; relics of righteousness. You will find empowerment and a deeper insight into what God wants to do now.

Prideful Opinion or Humble Trust?

Daily Encouragement –

What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word? 

Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you. 

Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things. 

Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Awaken All You People

Word of the Lord-

The enemy has been masquerading himself as an angel of unity and diversity but he is just trying to create a distraction while he sows seeds of division and hatred. Sadly, many eyes and hearts are being led astray, saved and unsaved alike. My Spirit is indeed moving in the midst of all of the unnecessary chaos to bring revelation and restoration. 

The enemy would like nothing more than to keep My children from going out and turning the world upside-down and bringing My love and fire to the nations. 

Many have become preoccupied with being entertained by feeble and folly things that bear no eternal fruit; all while souls are perishing into an eternity of hell apart from Me. Truly I tell you, being entertained by man-made distractions gains nothing, for you may very well not only be losing your own soul but the souls of many. There is greater joy when one sinner repents than of any and all of the entertainment that this world has to offer! 

Wake up you misled, lazy ones! The world, indeed, all of creation is awaiting your awakening! For those who will get over and get past all of the ways that the enemy is moving and wage war where it is due- not against each other but against the spirits at work to bring destruction and division. This is not an earthly war between man but a war of the supernatural. 

Where are the ones who would pray and stand against the evil taking place in the unseen realm? For My Spirit is at work in all of these things and the weapons at hand for those who will partner with Me are mighty in the pulling down of strongholds. Who will be bold enough to lay down their lives and join Me in this war where I win? 

Matthew‬ ‭10:34‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:3-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ. And after you have become fully obedient, we will punish everyone who remains disobedient.”

Matthew 10:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

Child of The King

Daily Encouragement – 

I love you My child!!! You are truly My child, and you are learning to live like it. I am The King and Ruler over all things, and everything must come into order and obey Me. You are the only of all creation to have the right and authority to walk as My representative. 

Nothing and no one can stop Me or hold Me back. Believe that I am the King over all and watch Me do the unexpected and impossible through you. Every sickness, disease, demon, pain… must bow down and submit to Me and My children who are walk as My representatives. 

You have no idea the power and authority of heaven backing you up right now!!! This power is released and poured out in greater ways the closer you are to Me. Come close to Me and release the Kingdom I pour over you!!!

Easter, The Multiplication of Martyrdom

So, we are here in Cambodia now.  It seems that Wifi is much harder to come by in the day to day happenings that take place than it was before.  We have been here nearly a week, but have not updated and for this I apologize.  However, such is the life of those who are on adventure for the Lord.

Our travels here were uncertain and unplanned. After trying to reach our contact for two weeks and still not hearing from him, we came knowing that this is where we were supposed to be. The Lord rewarded our faith and when we got here, we were able to get ahold of our contact Both, and he took good care of us in Phnom Penh.  Good Friday, we went out with some of his family to a nearby mountain and got to pray over the nation from a high vantage point. Here, every high mountain in covered with temples and idols to demons. However, we claimed this mountain and the area for the Lord, and prayed that He would change the hearts of the people from darkness to the Truth.

After talking with Both and his pastor, they invited us to share with their church on Easter Sunday what God revealed to us to be praying for Cambodia and lead the people in prayer.  At that time, I agreed to it even though God had not spoken anything yet.  But, the testimony of the Lord is that He is forever faithful to His word, and He revealed three areas that we are praying over Cambodia, and are important for all of us to pray for ourselves and our nations.

SAM_1294

Jeremiah preaching at Living Hope in Christ Church

First, God spoke to me from Matthew 9:35-36 that Cambodia is the heart of Southeast Asia, and as such, the Christians should be praying that they would receive the heart of compassion of the Father.  Every time Jesus did miracles (feeding the 5,000, raising Lazarus from the dead, raising the widow’s son to life) it was because He was moved with compassion for the people. In the same way, we must be continually praying that God would give us His heart of love for Him and for His people.  I remembered that last time I was in Cambodia two years ago, this was one of the main things I was praying for myself.  It makes sense that this would be an important point of prayer for the nation.

Second, God continued speaking to me from vs. 37-38 of the same chapter in Matthew.  The harvest here is plentiful, but the laborers are few.  So, we need to be praying that God would send forth laborers into the harvest and be willing to go as He calls us to go forth.  It is interesting that the word Jesus uses here for sending forth the workers is the same one in Greek that is used when He is casting out demons.  God is calling His laborers to go forth with power and purpose into the harvest to reap the souls that He rightfully deserves and bought and paid for with His blood!

Lastly, God began to speak to me that we are all called to be martyrs!  For us, when we think of martyrs, we think of those who have died for being Christians.  But the Greek word we get martyr from literally means “ones who gives witness of what they know to be the Truth”.  We know more than anyone else what and Who the Truth is, and therefore, we are called to share it in the same way Paul was (Acts 26:16,18).  The Christians in the early church were so willing to share the witness of what they knew to be true that they did not care what persecution, trouble, life, or death became of them.  So many early Christians gave their lives as a witness for what they knew to be true, that we took the word and have used it for those who die for the Gospel.  This is how we overcome the enemy as it states in Revelations 12:11 “…By the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.”  Jesus was The Faithful Witness unto death (Rev 1:5) and we must follow His example no matter what the outcome may be.  For the people here in Cambodia, surrounded by Communism and Islam, there is much more to lose than people in the US.

I want to call you to not just pray for Cambodia, though this is something I ask you to do, but to pray and apply all of these areas to your own life.

Pray that God will give you His heart of compassion and love and that everything you do will flow out of that same love!

Pray that God will send forth laborers with power into the ripe harvest, and be willing to be one of these, as He speaks, that He may receive the reward He bought and paid for with His blood!

Pray that God would help you to be a faithful witness to everyone around you of what and Who you know to be The Truth, and that He would use you just like Paul “to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me” Acts 26:18.
