Time for the Accelerated Ascent

This morning as I awoke abruptly at 5 to the sound of my almost two year old’s cry of, “Mama!”, I recognized that I had had a very significant dream that unfortunately I had no time to try and recall the details of, lest Elam wake up his brother as well. As the morning went on, I attempted to recall the entirety of the dream, though I could only remember one glimpse of it. I knew that it was pertinent and needed to be revisited, so the first moment I got alone after putting the boys down for a nap, I went to my new ‘wrecked’ spot in our PRAY/PLAY room to ascend the hill of the Lord and seek His face…perhaps He would also allow me to re-receive the Word/vision.

As I sat and prayed, listened to an incredible live conversation between Larry Sparks and Nate Johnston about “No More Delay” recorded last night, and reflected on the Word of the Lord for me this morning, the Lord began to direct me back to the place I was in in the vision in the night. What could I do in that moment but to write as He revealed revelations of glory?…

In the dream, I walked through a set of double doors like you would see at an event center or conference center. The room was almost like a large-scale conference room set to house about ten thousand people or so. There was the floor area where I was standing and gazing upward, I saw a secondary section wrapping around the room of chairs almost like an arena. The lights were dimmed in the entirety of that section and the focus was on the ground level. As I looked around the room, There were rows of chairs set up in two sections off in the back of the bottom level. There was probably enough chairs set up for about five hundred to sit in. The chairs were empty except for the right section which had about two hundred people.
I could see in the spirit that there was either a video that had been played or was being played that stated the calculation of the size of the upcoming global harvest. I knew that the group of people standing and seated in the chairs were the intercessors for the harvest. There were millions of souls that were destined to be reaped as a reward. I thought it odd panning around the room that it was primarily empty, especially since we are talking about the global harvest!
These intercessors were in deep travail, bold declaration, and in heavy warfare over the promise and release of the harvest. Suddenly, I could feel the intense desire and longing of the Lord for this entire room to be filled with His intercessors. I could hear the voice of the Lord emphatically saying, “No, no, no…this is not enough! The harvest is so great! Where are they that would prepare the way? Where are all of My other warriors that would strike the ground with their prayers and break up the fallow soil to make way? Do you not realize the time? Do you not understand that My blueprints have been drawn up and it is time to take hold of them, time to set your face like flint and tear down every demonic hindrance and stronghold in your land? AWAKEN TO THE REALITY THAT THE TIME IS NOW! I DESIRE NO MORE DELAY! It is time to stop keeping your blueprints at an arm’s reach; and to take hold of what will undoubtedly change the course of eternity! The projection of the harvest is immense, but I want it to be so much greater and the wave so much stronger! If My marked ones would rise up and open their mouths and loose their tongues, then I would come in and bulldoze every delay agent in an accelerated pace. Oh, how the harvest would become so immense as you truly take hold of what is extended to you!”

Hosea 10:12 (AMP)
Sow with a view to righteousness [that righteousness, like seed, may germinate]; reap in accordance with mercy and lovingkindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek and search diligently for the Lord [and to long for His blessing] until He comes to rain righteousness and His gift of salvation on you.
(NLT)
I said, “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that He may come and shower righteousness upon you.”

Beloved, the weight of the desire of the Lord for the awakening of His marked ones, His intercessors, His change agents is greatly overwhelming. The power of prayer and declaration is mighty in the Kingdom and bears much reward. With the global harvest, as well as in our own lives, we must readjust our mindsets. To say that we know these things are imminent, and then to do nothing with this knowledge is disappointing to the heart of God. He longs to bring these things upon His creation, but He also desire us to participate and partner with Him in what He is doing in the nations. To sit idly by and to do nothing will only aid in the delay of its release as well as leave us out of the blessings that are to come through partnership. 

Every single one of the chairs in the dream were meant to be filled with fiery burning ones, demolishing enemy forces, and establishing Kingdom release in the earth. Do not let the enemy bind up your mouth for when you decree and declare the things of Heaven in the mighty name of Jesus, all the angels in Heaven respond immediately. Once a declaration is spoken, there is a response on its way. A divine exchange.

A quote from Jennifer Eivaz wrecked me as I received this prophetic download, “Before there is ever a revival, the Lord will send an intercessor.” Intercession breaks up the hard soil, the fallow ground. Fallow literally means unused, unproductive, uncultivated, and left for a period of time without being sown to restore its fertility.

While listening to the “No More Delay” message stated at the beginning of this post, Larry Sparks shared some powerful insight and prophetic revelation Holy Spirit spoke regarding the delay of release of prophecy, “The prophets will prophesy. Where are My apostles to bring alignment to the Word? Where are the evangelists and teachers–the five-fold ministry? Where are the people that would actually act like the prophetic word is true and will reorient and realign their lives to accommodate the prophetic word?” The role of the prophet is to ascend to the hill of the Lord and in that place of seeking, He releases a word, vision, prophecy; and the responsibility of the prophet is to release such revelation at the proper given time. The four other roles of the five-fold ministry are to take the word, awaken to and allow it to bring transformation, and to put it to use in whatever way Holy Spirit leads. We are all called to pray, intercede, and war in the spiritual alongside the Greatest Intercessor (Jesus) to bring the will of the Father about. This shared partnership, this whole being then comes together in a divine synergy with Holy Spirit at work and thus the will of the Lord is released in power in the earth, in the nations.

So you see brothers and sisters, we simply cannot do nothing with the Word. We simply cannot allow it to be released and not take it up, pray it into reality, and run with it. We simply must not allow ourselves to become apathetic to the call and desire of the Lord. My question for you today is this, are you ready to rise up and receive, apply, realign, intercede, war, fight, run, and ascend until the fullness of the Word and desire of the Lord is released into the nations? Or are you going to allow it to remain fallow until a person and generation arises that is willing to count the cost and go all in? The choice is yours.

Into the Wilderness We Go! 

While in my prayer and soaking time two afternoons ago, I had been praying about some deep revelation and knowledge given to me that morning. If any of you have heard of or kept up with the story of Jeremiah Thomas, the 16 year-old fiery warrior diagnosed with terminal cancer set on seeing abortion’s death in America, you will see a story calling every believer in the Body of Christ to rise up and take the baton that fell to the ground on August 26, 2018 with his passing into Glory.

I have been deeply moved by this story and fight and it only stirs me up even more to storm the gates of hell and FIGHT FOR LIFE until I see the complete end of abortion not only in my land but across every nation. A fight like this will cost something, as a matter of fact, it will cost everything to go face to face against the enemy’s sole goal in the earth, to kill, steal, and utterly annihilate. This is my mandate. This is one part of the scroll of my life given to me in the most vivid heavenly encounter I have ever had in my life, in which I was taken up into Heaven the Sunday before Mother’s Day of this year…to give my life in the fight for His Little Ones. Perhaps one day I will share of this divine life-altering experience when I am finally able to pen it concisely and find the correct words to accurately describe all that took place.

I had discovered two mornings ago that Jeremiah’s father, Rusty Thomas had made a post on Facebook that he along with ten other pro-life activists were preparing to go to federal court today to face charges for interposition at the only remaining abortion clinic in the state of Kentucky on Mother’s Day last year. I encourage you to check out the link above and let it be a charge to you that there is a cost when we choose LIFE and when we choose to give our lives to save the lives of the most marginalized, voiceless, and helpless people. I believe that it is no coincidence that they are facing charges like this at the same time that Supreme Court Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is under his own scrutiny and battle. The enemy is hard-pressed in opposition of those who oppose his eternal purpose. We must pray that every God-ordained purpose is resilient and holds steadfast, to be found victorious!

While studying this, I was lit on fire in my research about Kentucky and the things I read as the state progresses towards being abortion-free. They, along with six other states are one abortion mill away from banning clinical abortion. In prayer over this, I received a powerful vision of the doors of the E.M.W. Women’s Clinic, the sole abortion mill in the state, with an eviction notice on their doors. I then saw the hands of Jesus slap a huge yellow sticker across the doors that said, “CLOSED PERMANENTLY.” It is then that I began to see a breakthrough take place and prior visions I have received about revival taking place in Kentucky reappeared and began to become a reality. It is then that the Lord gave me this Word concerning these matters and the REFORMATION that is to take place:

Prophetic Word for Kentucky- SEPTEMBER 5, 2018

“Getting back to the start, to the beginning, to the roots. From this place where I birthed the wave of outpouring into the nation, will I birth a new thing. Out of this place will come a dual wave of Righteousness and Justice embodied. Out of this place will I release a third wave new to the eyes and heart of man. Because of the exchange of selfishness for Righteousness, I will pour out a new vision.
No longer will the spilled blood of My Little Ones stain this soil! No longer will the shedding of innocent blood brood over you, Kentucky! For through you, I will set the standard for the whole of the nation to follow. Just as with the second great move of My Spirit that originated in the wilderness, purifying the disgusting debauchery from your soul, so will I do it again!
Your soil is Ripe for Harvest! I will make you a signpost along the Highway of Holiness, pointing out the way for those who come after you. Out of your heart will I birth a strategic blueprint for a restoration of the soul of Revival. Out of this place will a fire ignite in your church to arise and carry the weight of the influx that is coming.
Get ready Kentucky, for a baby boom is coming! Yes, the twins are being established in your womb! Not only will you see a baby boom in the natural- for all of the babies that would have been aborted are being given over to Salvation; Life will rage within your borders! Awakening and an enabling in the Body will arise to the spirit of Adoption. Babies will be saved and receive My family as their own. You will also experience a baby boom in the spiritual, for the wave of Righteousness will bring them in by the droves to your light!
I decree and declare that your buildings will not be large enough! Yes, back to the wilderness will you find yourself! Prepare your tents! Establish your tent pegs in the soil and let My Spirit breathe upon your laid down tents! Indeed, your Harvest is Ripe and Ready!

Brothers and sisters, I believe that we will not see sustained, wide-spread Revival in America until we see a dramatic transformation and reformation of mindset and lifestyle. No longer can we continue shedding innocent blood. The blood of 59 million innocent babies cries forth from the soil of our guilty nation, crying out for JUSTICE. God cannot bless a land that is spilling innocent blood for selfishness’ sake. It is against His nature, and the Word of God is clear on this matter…for the shedding of innocent blood, blood will be required.

I hear the voices of the masses crying out, “WHY?!” to the increase of disease, suicide, and death in this nation. It is deafening in my spirit. The answer is simple, my friends. Until we cease to offer our children as sacrifices on the altars of selfishness, we will continue to see a rise in these atrocities; for we have exchanged righteousness for selfishness. Blessings for curses. Life for death. The enemy has full authority to come against us, because we have made a transaction with him, just as Adam and Eve did in the Garden.

My Spirit is on fire for what the Lord is doing and I prophesy that we will see an end to abortion in the state of Kentucky and that we will see a strategic plan be put into place that will not only take care of the rise of adoptions within the Church, but that there will be those with financial influence that will step up and create organizations to fund and pay for adoption costs. I do not believe it will be totally free, for a decision of that magnitude, rescuing lives of the innocent, there will be a cost; but paying the cost displays the commitment.We have the perfect example set before us, for Jesus paid the highest cost to save us from death, and to bring us into His family through adoption. 

Galatians 4:5-7 (TPT)
“Yet all of this was so that He would redeem and set free all those held hostage to the written law so that we would receive our freedom and a full legal adoption as His children. And so that we would know for sure that we are His true children, God released the Spirit of Sonship into our hearts—moving us to cry out intimately, ‘My Father! You’re our true Father!’ Now we’re no longer living like slaves under the law, but we enjoy being God’s very own sons and daughters! And because we’re His, we can access everything our Father has—for we are heirs of God through Jesus, the Messiah!”

Ephesians 1:5-6 (TPT)
“For it was always in His perfect plan to adopt us as His delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that His tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify His grace—for the same love He has for His Beloved One, Jesus, He has for us. And this unfolding plan brings Him great pleasure!”

Ephesians 1:3-6 (MSG)
“How blessed is God! And what a blessing He is! He’s the Father of our Master, Jesus Christ, and takes us to the high places of blessing in Him. Long before He laid down earth’s foundations, He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love, to be made whole and holy by His love. Long, long ago He decided to adopt us into His family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure He took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of His lavish gift-giving by the hand of His beloved Son.”

I leave you with two things: a powerful charge from Rusty Thomas at his son’s Homecoming Service below, and a charge of my own- what cost are you willing to pay for the lives of the innocent? What can you do to fight and take a stand for LIFE? Where can you put your time and energy that would further The Kingdom of God in this fight?
May your hearts be awakened, ignited, and empowered to RISE UP, FIGHT FOR LIFE, GIVE YOUR LIFE FOR HIS LITTLE ONES, and to STORM THE GATES OF HELL AND TAKE BACK WHAT THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN!!!

Proverbs 31:8-9 (NLT)
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; 
ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.”

Ask of Me!!! (Southeast Asia)

Without any knowledge or forethought of returning to Southeast Asia, God has prepared a way for me to return.  The location is new (and undisclosed for safety reasons) but the vision and mission is the same to respond to Jesus’ command of “Follow Me” with a resounding YES!!!

While fasting and praying for this upcoming trip, a scripture was spoken to me very clearly. 

Psalm 2:8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give You the nations as Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth as Your possession.’ 

This is the desire of The Lord for you today!!! Too often, we ask for such small mediocre things. God I need finances, take this stress from me, heal my headache… There is nothing wrong with asking these things, and I celebrate every prayer and act of faith in crying out to God.  However, if this is all we are asking for, we are aiming far lower than the Almighy God of the Universe desires or is capable of. 

My God is powerful and mighty and does great things beyond what we could ever ask for, hope for, or even imagine.  It is time for all of us to come out of small thinking and small prayers and graduate into Kingdom Prayers.  I desire a grand inheritance in The Kingdom!!! 

God has given me the privilege of traveling to many nations. I know most people may never have the opportunities I have been given, but how many nations have you asked for?  How many times have you poured out your heart for those in other countries to know The Lord and walk with Him? How often do you ask God to give your nation to you as an inheritance? Admittedly, I have not prayed as often or as fervently as I should, but God has given me the faith to ask for the nations as my inheritance.  

Now, as I travel again, unexpectedly, and without really praying for the specific location He has prepared for me before now, God has found a willing vessel. This is what He wants. Your abilities, talents, and gifts are not important. What is important is your willingness to be filled and desire to be used for His Kingdom.  

I encourage you today with this verse that has been on my heart the last month or so:

Romans 12:1 “Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies (dedicating all of yourselves, set apart) as a living sacrifice holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.”

It is time for us all, once again to worship God in the best way possible, by giving ourselves to Him just a little bit more today and letting Him do what He wants to do in and through us.

God, make us more willing and yielded vessels to You and Your will. Open our mouths to declare Your truth, may our thoughts and prayers be ever for Your Kingdom, and may our every breath be used for service in Your Kingdom anywhere You may take us, whether around the block or around the world. May we all have the faith and an abundance of grace to worship You with our whole lives!!!

Healing Waters, Tree of Life

A few days ago, I made mention of how the Lord moved mightily during our Sunday morning service. After a few days dwelling on what the Lord released and how He crashed in on our plans and took over, I am ready to share a bit of what took place. 


Church on Sunday morning was truly incredible and completely normal for God! During worship while in prayer, I felt Holy Spirit fall on me powerfully. I saw in the spirit a portal open in the supernatural realm and a pillar of swirling water descended upon the altar area. The sound of a mighty rushing waters began to increase in volume as I watched the waters churn. We just happened to be singing out of Isaiah 6, when Isaiah saw the Lord in His Temple and our worship and praise were being poured out like incense to the Lord. From the same opening that the pillar of water descended came an angel that was clothed in the brightest blue garments I have ever seen and it was his special assignment to churn the waters. He began singing, dancing, and spinning in praise within the waters and as he did, his wings as they touched would clap a thunderous sound as they stirred the waters. These were waters of divine and total healing.

The Lord reminded me of John 5 and the pool of Bethesda. John 5:1-4 (TPT) says,“Then Jesus returned to Jerusalem to observe one of the Jewish holy days. Inside the city near the Sheep Gate there is a pool called in Aramaic, The House of Loving Kindness. And this pool is surrounded by five covered porches. Hundreds of sick people were lying there on the porches—the paralyzed, the blind, and the crippled, all of them waiting for their healing. For an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.”  It goes on to say that there was a man who had been crippled for 38 years who laid beside the pool, always waiting for the angel to come and descend into the waters to stir them, awaiting eagerly his chance to enter the waters and be healed. There was just one problem though, he was unable to get into the waters himself. He required assistance and because only one person could receive their healing each time the angel came, and because hundreds with afflictions came awaiting the very same thing, he would always get passed over. 


Enter Jesus. 


Jesus notices him there helpless and asks if he truly wants to be healed. Because of mounting disappointment and discouragement, having missed his chance countless times before, the man replies in verse 7, “Sir, there’s no way I can get healed, for I have no one who will lower me into the water when the angel comes. As soon as I try to crawl to the edge of the pool, someone else jumps in ahead of me.” 


How many of you can say you relate to this man? He spent 38 years debilitated, void of a truly free life. When he saw an out laid right before him, he waited at the water’s edge for who knows how long. His freedom was laid right before him, within reach, yet he was unable to lay hold of it. After all of the discouragement, he began to believe he would never get his healing. He recognized his need for assistance but due to hope deferred, he was blind to the Healer standing before him


Perhaps there’s pain, sickness, affliction that you have been dealing with for a long time or for someone else. Perhaps you’ve been praying for healing for years only to see no results. Perhaps hope deferred has made your heart sick. (Proverbs 13:12Perhaps you’ve become so used to the pain that it has become part of your identity and you’ve learned to just deal. 


The Lord spoke to me when seeing the healing waters on Sunday that He wanted to release divine healing in the room, especially for those who had dealt with affliction for a long time. We released that word and called people forward to jump into the healing waters. While praying for people, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge that there was someone dealing with chronic pain for a long time and He wanted to heal them. No one came forward for it, so Jesus pointed the man out to me. Jeremiah and I went to pray for him and he knew I read his mail when we walked up to him. I told him I knew it was him and he said that he had been dealing with severe arthritis for four years and had chronic pain in his wrist and knee. We told him Jesus pointed him out because He wanted to heal him and asked if we could pray for him. He said “okay” and as we were praying, I asked if he felt anything different. He said there was a little change and that he could deal, that he was fine. This man is an example of many of us, just like the crippled man. We come to a place of either believing that this is our life now or that others need the healing more than us and that we can just deal. When we believe that others are worse off and need the healing more than us, we submit to that lie and are basically limiting God’s power, saying that He has a limited supply of healing. 


So with the crippled man, Jesus responded to him in verses 8 and 9“Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!” Immediately he stood up—he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again! Now this miracle took place on the Jewish Sabbath.”  Jesus offered his healing but it required action on his part. Either he could lie there and remain in his identity of being crippled or he could choose to believe Jesus and respond and step into his original design. Thus we return to Proverbs 13:12 for the second and most important part, “but a promise fulfilled is a tree of life.” 


Jesus did miraculous miracles that day. I had also got a word of knowledge about a rotator cuff and before I could say it, Jesus had healed a woman who had a torn one and had been unable to lift her arm for seven months! There was another woman who had separated vertebrae and was in constant severe pain, unable to cope. She woke up that morning in so much pain, she almost didn’t come to church. She didn’t want to take pain meds because they make her fall asleep. She came to church in excruciating pain and Jesus came as she was in the waters and completely healed her! No more pain!!! YES, LORD!!! 


Beloved, these miracles are for each one of you today just as they were in their time. The same Jesus that healed in these moments is the same Jesus that sees your need and wants to give you a tree of life! We must not allow ourselves to identify with the afflictions upon us, but press in and press on into the healing waters set before us! Jesus has MORE THAN ENOUGH of what we need when we need it! Reach out and take hold of His blessing today!

The U.S. and Russia: A Preemptive Strike


 

This past Sunday during worship at church, the Lord began to give me a vision that at first was a bit cloudy to me. It began to form but I struggled to understand and see it clearly. It took me coming home and spending the next two days seeking the Lord for clarity of the vision to receive the fullness of it. Here it is:

 

I saw the nations of the U.S. and Russia appear from an aerial view position. Then I saw the faces of Trump and Putin appear over their nations. Afterward, I saw an exchange of missiles launched and flying over the ocean. I knew that Russia was launching attacks on the U.S. I heard the words, ‘preemptive strike’. Russia was full of pride and hate and I knew they were launching strikes in full confidence that they were in supreme power. But I felt that this strike would result in a failed attack because God’s hand of favor was upon the U.S.  The Russian missile was destroyed out over the ocean before it even reached the U.S.  I saw Putin freak out, yelling in anger at the defeat that had occurred. This was his attempt to weaken, decimate, and hinder the U.S. in a desperate attempt to gain control of an already lost situation. The power of the U.S. (and God’s power over it) is perceived as a great threat to Putin’s seat of global power. Most interesting is that the response missile on the U.S.’s behalf began to dissolve upon approach of the Russian borders. I sensed and felt that the Lord is using this brief reprieve as a warning and last grace given to Russia to give up fighting against what the Lord has established and turn to the Him. Every form of opposition to the Lord will have monumental impact as a whole. 

The Lord said, “I hate communism! There is not a single thing that I like about it. It is oppressive, I hate oppression. It is restrictive, I hate restrictions. It is destructive, I hate destruction. I bring freedom and life. The enemy is the bringer of communism. Russia, this is not about a power struggle between nations. This is not about who has more weapons or manpower. This is about what I long to do in the nations. Russia, you are hated and despised by many because of your evil heart and the corrupt actions that flow from it. 

Nevertheless, I love you and desire that you would turn from your wicked ways and return to Me. Open your hardened, closed off heart to Me and let Me come in to heal, reshape, and renew you. Make no mistake…if you do not take heed of My word and return to Me in brokenness and in repentance, your healing will not come. I have plans for you, Russia…great plans, if you would only give up your thirst for power and surrender to Me. I am not willing that any of My little ones perish. Open up your heart to Me, Russia.”

 

I began thinking about the words, ‘preemptive strike’ and what that could mean. I looked it up to get a clear understanding of its meaning and here is what I found: “a first strike attack with nuclear weapons carried out to destroy an enemy’s capacity to respond. A preemptive strike is based on the assumption that the enemy is planning an imminent attack.” Now, I do not believe that this meant that there is going to be an actual nuclear missile/war to take place. I believe it was an attack of some sort from Russia in an attempt to debilitate the U.S. and prevent any future possible offensive moves on the U.S.’s part. 

 

There have been many attempts on the Russian side to come against the U.S., the country with the greatest resources in the world right now. I believe that the Lord’s hand of favor is upon America right now. Putin is a dictator and has been leading his people far away from the Lord, siding with the evil one. His heart has been hardened and callous to the Lord and that is evident through his approval in the ban of sharing the Gospel within the borders of the nation. With the dissolution of the missile upon the Russian borders in my vision, I believe that this it is a sign of the grace of God to turn the heart of Russia back to Him. He gives grace upon grace, even when we do not deserve it. His love for Russia is deep and His pursuit unrelenting. 

 

Brothers and sisters, it is not time to freak out and get caught up in the news and media. It is not time to get caught up in theories, theologies, and opinions. It is also not time to become apathetic to the reality at hand. When we start feeling nothing towards the injustices and problems around the world, our hearts have become just as calloused as those who have turned from the Lord to follow other gods. When we fail to seek His heart for the circumstances being presented, we fail to be the sons and daughters we are called to be. It is time to stop hating Russia for the past, present, and future and realize that God loves Russia. He loves His creation and though His remnant remains, He longs to raise up burning ones among the nation to carry the Gospel with fervor and zeal to all nations. He wants the hearts of all in Russia, just as in every nation to turn to Him. Healing, restoration, and freedom comes when we realize our wickedness, turn to Him, and repent. 

 

Philippians‬ ‭1:28‬ ‭(AMP‬‬)

“And in no way be alarmed or intimidated [in anything] by your opponents, for such [constancy and fearlessness on your part] is a [clear] sign [a proof and a seal] for them of [their impending] destruction, but [a clear sign] for you of deliverance and salvation, and that too, from God.”

 

2 Chronicles‬ ‭7:13-15, 19-22‬ ‭(NLT)‬‬

“At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to every prayer made in this place. 

But if you or your descendants abandon Me and disobey the decrees and commands I have given you, and if you serve and worship other gods, then I will uproot the people from this land that I have given them. I will reject this Temple that I have made holy to honor My name. I will make it an object of mockery and ridicule among the nations. And though this Temple is impressive now, all who pass by will be appalled. They will ask, ‘Why did the Lord do such terrible things to this land and to this Temple?’ And the answer will be, ‘Because His people abandoned the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and they worshiped other gods instead and bowed down to them. That is why He has brought all these disasters on them.’”
