It took working in New York on 9/11 as an air traffic controller to change my tune. I do not suppose the following is Armageddon or “The Apocalypse.” It’s just time to look deeper, America.
Before Irma formed we began seeing coming disasters through prayer and God’s Word. Day after day, with our backs to the news, the same very alarming message has presented itself through our seeking of God, again and again.
I hope this does not excite fear, but create sobriety.
On August 8th, I saw, in the Spirit (John 16:13), North Korea launch a missile which produced a title wave. Later that same day, breaking news announced their threat to drop a missile off the coast of Guam. We sought the Lord, “Shall intercession avert this?”
(Church in America, prayer is not a magic lamp to rub for the satisfaction of YOUR agenda. It’s communion with God. Biblical examples reveal that sometimes this oneness informs, “Don’t bother praying against _____.” There have been many times our reply to this type of leading was along the lines of, “Uh, are You sure about that?!”)
On August 13th, “Everyone will be salted with fire” (Mark 9:49) came alive to us – we published that on the 14th. Later that same week Harvey formed into a tropical storm. The American Church’s intercession did not turn the subsequent disaster away.
God is in this place! All of the wicked strife, hate & personal preferences (idols) have been mocking the Blood of the Lamb. No words can describe how offensive this sound has been in the heavenly realms. Sad that it took Harvey to produce a sweet sound from that region of America. Again, our prayer and Bible study has convinced us that more fire upon America is bringing forth an even sweeter sound yet.
God should be praised. God will be praised.
John Wesley said there is no salvation without, first, a crisis. God’s Word says that the righteous (via faith in Jesus) will never be shaken; He is a Fortress to all who trust in Him.
I do believe that all out repentance TODAY, nation-wide, can turn every evil away from America’s shores. The fruit of righteousness is undisturbed rest, a secure home, confidence in God and plenty of seed to sow…even should “hail flatten the city” (Isaiah 32:17-20).
“The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and the LORD will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in the whirlwind and storm…The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him…But with an overflowing flood He will make a complete end of His adversaries…trouble will not rise up from them a second time.” (Nahum 1:3, 7-9)
