“I am looking – I am looking down from heaven over the earth and I am looking for a people who will execute judgement and righteousness in their lands. People who will stand in the gap for their nations and who will cry out with a voice to heaven for mercy on those who are wicked and who are doing wicked things.
Let the voice of those who are righteous cry out at this time. Let there be a cry that goes up from the day to the night before the throne of heaven. Let there be mourning and crying for the wickedness of the earth is great. The poor are oppressed, the strangers are treated harshly, the needy are exploited, there is no justice for the righteous, the innocent are killed and slaughtered all day long.
Who will stand up and cry out for those? Who will take their side? Who will rise up for justice and righteousness in their lands? The pillars of justice and righteousness are to be re-established in the nations. Woe to those nations who oppress the poor and needy. Woe to those nations who mistreat the vulnerable & do not offer shelter to the foreigner and those who have no homes. Woe to the selfish & the proud.
This is the time to offer mercy and to help those in need. If you turn your back on those in need then why should my Father in heaven pour out blessings upon you. The treasures of heaven are stored up for such a time as this. Do not ask with a selfish heart for yourselves for there is more than enough for all. Did anyone in My house ever beg for bread. I am the bread of life and there is an abundance in My hand.
Search your hearts. When did you help those in need or are you just concerned for your own needs? Are you just interested in your own kingdoms and to build your own kingdom or are you looking to build My kingdom.
Lo – you need to wake up and listen to Me. The shout has gone out from My throne – Wake up you sleepers and rise from the dead and I will give you light. Now is the day – Take hold of today for you do not know what tomorrow will bring. Amen.
This was a word which I had in 2018 when praying but I feel led to share it again in this season: I sensed the Spirit was saying this to me:
“In the beginning was The Word and the Word was God. There is power in My Word. Whatever, I declare from heaven concerning a matter or a nation will be performed. My angels act on my commands. My Word is powerful. My Word is creative but also destructive. It can build up or it can tear down and root out.
Whenever I speak, My Word will perform whatever it is sent forth to achieve. I have declared a new time and season – a new day for the church. Too long she has been weak, ineffective and struggling like a new born babe. Now she will rise up with renewed energy & VIGOUR. She will have learned how to use the tools with which I have armed her so that My Kingdom can advance. It is time to take the Kingdom (God’s) and push forward. To take the light into the darkness.
I do not need a vast army to achieve my purposes. Only those who are willing to persevere, willing to count the cost, those who are bold, those who have courage, who take their strength from Me. Those will be part of my army. Those who are skilled in My Word, those who know their position, those who listen and obey. They will receive the words to speak and declare in My name. The will see My wonder working power at work. They will be my vessels to bring healing, holiness and salvation to nations.
I am on the move. My body the Church needs to discern where I am leading in this season. It is not time for the faint hearted, the men pleasers, and the timid. This is the season for those who fear the Lord and show reverence and fear. Who love righteousness and hate wickedness, injustice and wrong – to be willing to stand up and be counted. To be the carriers of My presence into all situations. Everyday situations where I have placed them – whether home, work, family, government, schools – everywhere they find themselves. They can have an impact.
Now rise up and go to war on the enemy -Satan. Pull down his strongholds and declare that his time has come to an end in this region. There is a new King in town (Jesus). A new Kingdom (Jesus’) being established and the enemy (Satan) is to be trodden underfoot and trampled. Satan’s troops, his spirits will have to flee in the presence of My army. Gideon’s army is on the march. It is time to advance. Take the gates and push back the darkness. “
