Imprecatory Prayer Part 5 – The Law VS Grace?

This is the Fifth teaching regarding Imprecatory Prayer

Number Five

The number 5 is an interesting number and has several spiritual meanings in the Bible. Most of us have been taught the number 5 symbolizes grace. One Bible Study says: The number 5 symbolizes Yahweh’s grace, His goodness and favor towards humans and Five is the number, when multiplied by itself, 5 upon 5 is 25, is “grace upon grace.” (John 1:16: And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace KJV)

The Ten Commandments contains two sets of 5 commandments, with the first five related to our treatment and relationship with God and the last five concern our relationship with other humans. Interesting don’t you think?

I have a personal testimony about the number 5 and it’s meaning. One night I was sleeping and awoke to someone audibly calling out my name, “Bonnie.” I opened my eyes and looked around. My mother’s two cats were sacked and there was no one in the room but us. Then, in my mind’s ear, I heard the word grace and the number 5.

I was puzzled, because my understanding of the number 5 and the word grace meant the same. Was there a hidden message for me here? I finally wrote down on a posted note, my name, the word grace and the number 5 and as we say, put it on the shelf. I am not sure of what year it was, but I wrote Saturday, the 24th.

A couple months later Risa Utley and I went to a Mike Bickle IHOP (Kansas City International House of Prayer) conference in Kansas City. We were there three days and on the last day, I went into the bookstore area and purchased an Ira Milligan Book on the meaning of dreams. We drove back to Tennessee and decided to check in with Deb Inghram, who was the President of Firestorm Ministries at that time and share events from the conference.

Risa was talking to Deb and I just happened to pick up the book I bought and the numbers section came up. The number 5 in this book said: FIVE – Serve: Works, service….. yada yada, but I did not need to go any further. I had my answer for my prophetic word from Saturday, the 24th; Yahweh called my Name and gave me Grace to Serve. I was undone.

Maybe this Imprecatory Prayer Part 5 segment is a call to you to pray and intercede (serve) on a new level? I am confident praying in this manner through imprecations is more powerful than what I have been doing in the past and hope it brings a witness to your spirit too. The world needs our prayers.

As I study, I continue to learn imprecation prayers are not new and there are a lot of people who have and are writing about it. It is like everywhere I look there are teachings and lots of information to chew on and share. So, here we go.

A couple of days ago, I just happened to catch a short teaching where Michael Heiser was sharing where the first imprecatory theme came from. Are you ready? He said Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham and said? I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you. Genesis 12:3

When David prayed the imprecatory prayers in the “War Psalms,” he was reminding Yahweh of his promise in Genesis to bless those who blessed him and curse those who were cursing him, and know this, THAT promise belonged to David and it belongs to us too.

Some people are extremely against praying the imprecatory prayers as they think they are for personal vengeance, un-Christian and have no place in our prayer rooms, but is that really true?

I’m going to Nehemiah, Chapter 4, where Nehemiah is repairing the Wall and Sanballat and his crew are coming against him. Here is what is written.

1 But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews. 2 And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned? 3 Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.

Sure sounds like they are cursing the work of Nehemiah and his workers. What did Nehemiah do? He prayed, but he did NOT take justice into his own hands, he went before Yahweh with imprecations against Sanballat and his group.

4 Hear, O our God; for we are despised: and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity: 5 And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee: for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders. 6 So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.

When Sanballat and his group saw the walls of Jerusalem were up, they plotted to fight against the Jews. They tried several times to set up a private meeting with Nehemiah, probably to cause him great harm, but he said he was busy and would not go.

7 But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, 8 And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.

So, who was Sanballat? He was the governor of Samaria, an enemy of the Jews (Yahweh). He had powerful and wealthy support under his control and watch this, his deeds are examples of our warfare being: “against the rulers, against the powers,… against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

 

Consider this in examining Nehemiah’s prayer.

1) In opposing the Jews, Sanballat and company were actually opposing God.

2) God had already pronounced judgment on Israel’s enemies. Nehemiah was praying according to God’s will – that God would deliver Jerusalem from her enemies in Joshua. 1-5:

“There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”)

3) Nehemiah was praying that God would bring about what He had promised Abraham regarding those who curse His people (Gen. 12:3).

4) Vengeance belongs to God, not to Nehemiah or other believers (cf. Deut. 32:35; Rom. 12:19).

In the Psalms the psalmists did not hesitate to avow their loyalty to Yahweh and His covenant, because they were on Yahweh’s side. In their zeal to champion righteousness, their words frequently contain imprecations or curses. They prayed that God would break the arms of the wicked (Ps. 10:15) smash their teeth (58:6) and turn His wrath on them (69:22-28).

The psalmists were filled with zeal for God’s theocracy (His Reign and Authority). These expressions released in the prayers were not indications of personal vendetta. A Theocracy is a Government ruled by or subject to religious authority, a form of government, in which God is recognized as the supreme civil ruler of the state, and His laws are taken as the statute-book of the kingdom.

To pray the imprecatory psalms is ultimately to pray as Jesus taught us to pray. As Christians, we long for God’s kingdom to come. We yearn for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, as written in the Lord’s Prayer. Praying the imprecatory psalms is not a call to arms, but a call to faith. We lift our voices, not our swords, as we pray for God either to convert or curse the enemies of Christ and His kingdom.

Imprecatory Psalms in the Old Testament

Psalms. 5:10; 6:10; 7:6; 9:19-20; 10:2,15; 17:13; 28:4; 31:17-18; 35:1,4-8,19,24-26; 40:14-15; 41:10; 54:5; 55:9-15; 56:7; 58:6-10; 59:5,11-14; 63:9-10; 68:1-2; 69:22-28; 70:2-3; 71:13; 79:6,10-12; 83:9-18 (cf. Judges 4:15-21; 5:25-27); 94:1-4; 97:7; 104:35; 109:6-19,29; 119:84; 129:5-7; 137:7-9; 139:19-22; 140:8-11; 141:10; 143:12

Before you jump the gun saying imprecatory prayers are under the law in the Old Testament, no longer valid, are immoral, cruel and inappropriate for a New Testament Christian, think on this.

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament are the inspired Words of Yahweh. Though the New Testament is known as Grace, if we study, we will find there is Grace in the Old Testament too. For example in Genesis 6:8: But Noah found favor and grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The New Testament reveals and confirms the Old Testament, plus there is grace in the OT and there is grace in the NT, likewise there is law in the OT and there is law in the NT.

The book of Hebrews in the New Testament is full of comparisons to the old life under “the law” and the new life we live by Yahweh’s forgiving grace. Check out these verses from just one chapter in Hebrews (10: 11-12, 16-18):

“Under the old covenant, the priest stands before the altar day after day, offering sacrifices that can never take away sins. But our High Priest offered himself to God as one sacrifice for sins, good for all time. ‘This is the new covenant I will make with my people on that day, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts so they will understand them, and I will write them on their minds so they will obey them.’ Then he adds, ‘ I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.’” NLT

As God’s new creation we actually want to obey His law – not because it gets us anything, but because of our love for Him. Psalms 40:8 reveals: “I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” (Psalm 40:8)

It is dangerous to set ourselves up as judges, pitting Scripture against Scripture between the Old and New Testaments, because God’s moral law is immutable and everywhere the same. It is foolish to invalidate prayers assuming they are defective and only reveal a man’s sinful desire for vengeance on his personal enemies, when they are instead, prayers being sent up to the very Courtroom of Heaven crying out for JUSTICE to Yahweh where He sits as the Judge, reminding Him of the promise He made to Abraham many, many years before, to bless those who bless us and curse those who curse us. They remind Yahweh, state their case and leave the verdict and the sentence in the Hands of Yahweh, for it is written “Vengeance is MINE”, saith the FATHER. Romans 12:9

Furthermore, what do we do with the “imprecatory prayers” released on the enemies of God found in the New Testament? How about this one:

Galatians 1:8: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” This is Paul speaking.

Luke 10:10-16: But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this,, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. but it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despisesth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

And there are more: I Corinthians 16:21-22; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; 2 Timothy 4:14; Revelation 6:10; 19:1-2.

I will not leave out the prayer Jesus told the disciples (and us) to pray, “The Lord’s Prayer”, “Thy kingdom come” in Matthew 6:10. This prayer is for the Church, you and I, to pray to invoke (call forth) divine judgment on all other kingdoms and all those who oppose the “reign” of Yahweh. Selah (Think about it)

Jesus, The Christ, used imprecatory language in Matthew 23. Hang on – here come the Woe’s. Do you know the meaning of the word “woe?” In the Greek:

Whenever we see the word “woe” in the New Testament, it is always a translation of the Greek word “ouai”. This Greek word “ouai” is used 47 times in the New Testament: 41 times in 33 verses it is translated as “woe”, and six times in three verses it is translated as “alas”.

Those are the only times “woe” and “alas” appear in the New Testament. So let’s look at the meaning of this Greek word, and then see why the translators translated it as “alas” in six places.

The Greek word “ouai” is used in the following three ways:

1) It is used to express a denunciation; i.e. to pronounce someone or something as blameworthy and evil.
2) It is used to express a severe calamity, a severe distress or affliction.
3) It is used to express great grief

Jesus is speaking evil curses of calamity, grief over the scribes and the Pharisees and hypocrites in Matthew 23.

13 “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”
14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.
19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

When Yahshua/Jesus returns, Vengeance will be His as He sits upon the Great White Throne Of Judgment and separates the sheep to the right and the goats to his left and brings Justice. He will speak imprecations over those who have been against Him in Matthew 25 verses 41-46. He will no longer be mocked.

41 Then He will say to those at His left hand, Begone from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!

42 For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink,

43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me and entertain Me, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me [f]with help and ministering care.

44 Then they also [in their turn] will answer, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?

45 And He will reply to them, Solemnly I declare to you, in so far as you failed to do it for the least [[g]in the estimation of men] of these, you failed to do it for Me.

46 Then they will go away into eternal punishment, but those who are just and upright and in right standing with God into eternal life.

Selah!

Imprecatory Prayer Teachings Part 1-4

BONNIE NELSON – ARTICLES

I Have Chosen You

From the Friday Night Prophetic Training Class

March 19, 2021

The following Word was received as being from our Father Yahweh

I Have Chosen You

Bonnie Nelson

For this is the time many dreamed of being a part of throughout all history. I have chosen you for such a time as this, because you have been equipped to be more than just a conqueror of that which is seeking to take over the world. Have no fear, for I have intricately put things into your fingertips, which shall come forth when the time is nigh, which will tear down strongholds and set many free.

Keep that which is evil away and touch not any thing which you do not know of its history. All that is encompassed on the earth is either for Me or against Me and you shall determine it by My Spirit in you. I shall quicken you when to go and when to stay and when to prophesy and release what I say. I shall give you information to teach you of My Ways and of what I AM doing so you may prepare My family for My coming.

Fear Not…I AM for you and I shall renew you daily as the times shall become hard and many shall fall away, but I know you, you will not betray Me or leave Me, for we have been together for a long time. The season is about to change and soon I will call your name. Listen closely and watch with the eyes of the eagle as the scenery will change and you will lead many to a safe place.

Prepare My Way and prophesy, for I shall come forth walking on the prayers of My Family to set things right and in order. It shall be the beginning of the end and yet, the end shall be the birthing of the beginning.

IMPRECATORY PRAYER – PART 4

IMPRECATORY PRAYER – PART 4

ARE YOU ON YAHWEH’S SIDE

CHILDREN OF THE STATE

This is the fourth teaching on Imprecatory Prayer and I am leaning more and more on the them, to help me through each day without becoming a screaming maniac. It is amazing how many things have happened over the course of this last week, but just knowing through the imprecatory prayers I can war in the spirit realm and make a difference, has been incredible.

I can pray like David, Jesus, Paul and others did and release my feelings of abhorrence to the evil I am seeing in our Nation to Yahweh. This is definitely prophetic warfare on another level, which we really need right now!

It is interesting as I prayed, cried out and released my disgust to God, I found my peace returned. I think it is because I know He will do the right thing in the situation and I believe I am doing the right thing, by giving it to Him. What a trade off! Here take my Irritation, Aggravation, Frustration of the evil I am seeing and give me Peace and Joy. I like this.

This week Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) declared, “what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.” Go look.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/03/01/nadler-on-equality-act-gods-will-is-no-concern-of-this-congress-n1429110

How hypocritical is it for a person/persons in our Congress, to arrogantly dismiss Yahweh from our Nation’s Capitol, while he is standing in front of a plaque on the wall saying, In God We Trust? It is dangerous when a person or governmental body removes Yahweh from our Nation and puts themselves in His place, thinking they are God. Thinking is not being.

I was horrified at this arrogance and blasphemy of Yahweh and was led to the imprecatory Psalm 59:12-13

For the sin of their mouths, the words of their lips, let them be trapped in their pride. For the cursing and lies that they utter, consume them in wrath; consume them till they are no more, that they may know that God rules over Jacob to the ends of the earth. Selah Psalms 59:12-13 ESV

Now when I prayed this prayer, just like when David prayed, I realize the consequences, which will come from it are up to Yahweh, not me. He will do as He pleases. He may convert this person, He may remove him, He may restrain him, He may do whatever He pleases. It is all in His Hands, because He is the Sovereign God who’s the Judge of All the Earth. I just know I have to add my prayer, my part and co-labor with Yahweh.

After the prayer, I was feeling much better until, the stories of the mess at our southern borders began to come forth. What in the world is happening? President Trump had a deal with Mexico and the wall was almost finished. Now it appears the deal was cancelled and everything has exploded and 76,000 illegals crossed over our border in February and they are saying 2021 may see a million more.

Plus, we now have drug cartels using guns to shoot at our border patrols, and fight over bad drug deals and child trafficking. So what happened next? Someone in our administration has disarmed the border patrol and left them in harms way, with 3500 illegals a day being detained (where) and how many already crossed over?

The news media says huge numbers of unaccompanied minors at the border are surging and the political war rages over the treatment of these young children.

So, I am wondering, why are they letting all these children in with no parents? Who is going to raise them? Where are they going to live? And then, in my spirit I heard, “Children of the State.”

The picture here is of children being raised by ISIS
China does this too

Children of the State

Human Trafficking of Children – Sexual Perversion


Can you get a hold of this? At this time, they are now sending these kids to military bases in Virginia, California, Texas, Oklahoma and who knows where else and what are they going to do with them there? I might be crazy, but I am thinking they are going to feed them, clothe them, medically treat them, school them and indoctrinate them as “Children of the State. Who protects these children from the State?

The words of Chuck Schumer fell into my spirit. ‘Now we take Georgia, then we change the world’ And at another celebration, he slipped and said, “Now we take Georgia and then we change America.”

Socialistic professors have already indoctrinated over half the US colleges by removing our history, teaching sexual perversions, presenting an evil racist representation of our Nation, reduced men and women to being gender neutral and all hail Baal the god of abortion at anytime for anyone, at the expense of the American tax payer and in the face of Christians and Yahweh, who is the giver of life.

They have shut down the churches making us look as if we have no courage, voice or power to be dealt with and labeled us as religious fanatics, who need to be deprogramed and our kids should be taken away to be re-educated; by who, why The State, of course. They are replacing Yahweh and making the government the god over America, who will now supply everyone’s needs. Another check on the way.

Think I am kidding? Headlines today read: China proudly boasts, “China is Rising, American is Declining.” The world watches. Who is left to come against this invasion? Did you know China owns US land and some of our debt?

https://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2017/03/26/the-future-chinas-rise-americas-decline/?sh=753026e3b2f6

If that is not enough, we now have a our Capitol surrounded by razor wire, walls, Capitol police, FBI, CIA and 10,000 or more National Guard, whom they are treating like dogs, all are contained in a massive cage. It is wise to remember a cage can keep people out, but it can also keep people in.

There is more, but hopefully by now you are taking another serious look at the imprecatory prayers. Remember the song, When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going? I believe we need to get Tough and Smart. The weapons of our warfare today have to be of the spirit, not carnal. And we have to become wise as serpents and meek as doves, like David was. He was a small shepherd boy with a slingshot and 5 stones who took down a 9 foot Giant, and he was fierce in his imprecatory prayers in the spirit to Yahweh.

David did not have a problem praying imprecatory prayers like the modern church today. Maybe it was because he was more sensitive to the horror of the sin and evil he was seeing and hearing words of blasphemy against Yahweh.

It should be frightening to think we, as the Body of Christ, with all our education and spiritual training and dedications, to think we can stand in the presence of evil and not be moved to pray as David did.

The motivation to pray Imprecatory prayers in our Nation today should be THE RED ALERT to stand on Yahweh’s side, release legislative prayers with zeal for God’s Righteousness, His Honor, His Reputation and His Kingdom to come, instead of willingly ignoring blasphemy and overlooking evil. Do we really love Yahweh and His Name or are we playing a church game?

Could our reaction to the imprecatory psalms be traced to the fact we love men/women and their favor, or our love for mammon, political world power and evil agendas and deviant sex more than we love God, His Righteousness and His Favor? By the way, who promises eternal life? Selah!

Thy Kingdom Come Father!!

David was a King, God’s representative on the earth, so an attack on him was in effect, an attack on God. David’s enemies were not his private opponents but adversaries of God. Was he perfect no, but he was not evil and he fought when enemies “spoke against God with malicious intent:

“your enemies take your name in vain! Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?” Psalm 139:20-21; Psalm 5:10 emphasis mine).

Imprecatory prayers are not used for the destruction of a personal enemy, but for the wicked and those who oppose God and His Ways.

David called for divine judgment so long as the enemies persisted in their rebellion and it is important to know – we love our enemies by praying for their repentance through these prayers, who knows, just like Saul, Yahshua may make the way for your worst enemy to be saved. Is that not a kind thing to do instead of just walking away and being silent?

However, if they consistently refuse, our only recourse is to pray that God’s judgment be full and fair. We are not helpless or powerless as the world thinks.

Even in the church today, there often comes a time in dealing with human sin when the Church and God has to withdraw their merciful hand and release the human heart to its chosen path. That is when we turn someone in sin over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh; so as to save their soul and to keep others from following them and their ways.

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. I Corinthians 5:5. Notice this is the New Testament.

David was one who knew about having clean hands. He knew he needed spiritual protection lest he “hate” God’s enemies for “personal reasons.” That is why he concludes with Psalm 139 with the prayer that God purify his motives and protect his heart.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” (vv. 23-24)

Therefore, when David speaks of “hatred” for those who oppose God’s kingdom, he is neither malicious nor bitter nor vindictive, nor moved by self-centered resentment. But he most certainly is jealous for God’s name and firmly at odds with those who blaspheme. He is on Yahweh’s side, just like we should be, no more waffling back and forth, choose who you will serve. Choose who you will spend eternity with.

I understand some will react to the harsh language, which is used in the imprecatory psalms, but I don’t want anyone to loose sight of what sin deserves and what Yahweh deserves.

Praying for God to punish the “wicked” is neither unloving nor vindictive, but a statement and expression of faith in Yahweh who judges justly. (1 Peter 2:23)

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

That is not only talking the talk, but walking the talk.

Let the dry bones live and the righteous rise and take their place. This is the fight of our life and the fight for our Nation and our God Yahweh. Do not be lack in knowing how important your vote is for Yahweh, His Policies and the Directives in His Word.

Defining Imprecatory Prayer Part 3

Imprecatory Prayer
Part 3

Defining Imprecatory Prayer
The Need For Imprecatory Prayer Today

This is the third post regarding imprecatory prayers and maybe the most important one, as evil agenda’s are quickly being released all across our Nation through legislation at the highest levels of our government and from deals being made by foreign entities seeking to gain World Economic Power. The New World Order is proudly raising its evil head.

Is there any way to stop this? How do we fight? Could it be the weapons needed to bring down the evil plans coming against our Nation and the world are already in our war chest? Are you ready to get tough? Remember that song, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. I think we are there, all hands on deck!

I know there are many who are afraid of imprecatory prayer, thinking it was only for the Old Testament and King David was probably a neurotic mental case when he used them, and we don’t curse we bless. But heed my words; Yahweh is highlighting imprecatory prayer again to the Church for a reason.

We are now dealing with perversion and evil on a level never seen before and this enemy is out to mutilate and destroy us. We cannot try to do warfare with pretty words and beg Yahweh to save us. It is time to “take the gloves off” and get real.

President Trump said this. “They are really after you, I’m just in their way.” He was right and the forces of evil power removed him through a level of in your face deception never seen before.

Now there is only one faction left standing on the front line able to keep evil from taking over the World and cancelling everything Jesus did to set us free: The Church of Jesus Christ, aka Yahshua Ha MaShiach

It is written in Daniel 7:25:

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Are you ready to surrender? Are you ready to worship Satan? I pray NOT, in the Name of Yahshua/Jesus. Rise up dead bones and LIVE!!

Hopefully, you are seeking God to refresh and refill you with His courage and restore your ROAR. So let us take a serious and deeper look into imprecatory prayer and how we can use these prayers in the correct manner, to shake the gates of Heaven and earnestly petition Yahweh to bring His righteous Judgment against our enemies.

Remember our enemies are God’s enemies. Why, because we have His Spirit in us, the same Spirit Yahweh put in Jesus Christ, Jesus put in us!

Satan is trying to make Government our God.
Are you ready for that? I’m not!

Here is an in depth look at what imprecatory prayers are and do. Imprecatory prayers are prayers, which “invoke evil upon or curse” one’s enemies. I want you to stop concentrating on the word “curse” and put your focus on the word “enemies” for a minute.

What is an enemy? According to the King James Bible Dictionary’s here is the definition of an enemy:

1. A foe; an adversary. A private enemy is one who hates another and wishes him injury, or attempts to do him injury to gratify his own malice or ill will. A public enemy or foe, is one who belongs to a nation or party, at war with another.

2.) One who hates or dislikes; as an enemy to truth or falsehood.

3. In theology, and by way of eminence, the enemy is the Devil; the archfiend.

4. In military affairs, the opposing army or naval force in war, is called the enemy.

So, our enemy is the one who seeks to hurt us who hates truth and by way of eminence = it is the Devil, the archfield, in other words the chief foe, the leader of those who come against us as an enemy.

Now look at who and how are we to wage war against our enemies in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh 4) For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The enemies revealed here in the Scriptures expose a battle ground in the spiritual realm, raging over/in the natural realm, where Spiritual entities are ruling over earthly governments.

Imprecatory prayers are not to be used as “Carnal Weapons” against people we are mad at. These prayers are spiritual weapons released to invoke evil or a curse against enemies holding spiritual strong holds, principalities and powers and every high thing and imaginations that exalt itself against the knowledge of God and bring every thought into the obedience to Christ’s Kingdom coming.

The carnal mind will look at imprecatory prayers and immediately go into the realm of the flesh, thinking they can put a curse on anyone they don’t like, or disagrees with them. We don’t curse a classmate we are mad at, a next-door neighbor who doesn’t mow his yard, nor do we release a curse against a co-worker who made inappropriate remarks to us, someone at church with a different theology, political view, or a bully at school.

But thanks to the release of Harry Potter books all over the world, witchcraft, curses and sorcery have invaded, not only the secular part of our culture, but also the sacred. Churches all over America saw these books as great reading exercises for our younger generation and fun to read. Really?

Kids are now putting spells and curses on each other, mom, dad and anyone who does not do what they want. Even in the Trump Biden Presidential Race, we had Warlocks and Witches all over America putting spells on whatever candidate they did not want to win. Think about that!

At this time, we have at least 2 generations of young people and adults who now know how to practice witchcraft and sorcery thanks to J.K. Rowling. Her line of books by the way, contain real curses and spells found from her extensive research into witchcraft in countries all over the world. The enemy is keen to do things we which can appear good, but they have a deadly underlying spiritual agenda. If you have one of these books or movies in your house, burn them and repent. They are contacts, which the enemy can use to enter your home.

Scriptures warn us of witches and sorcerers. “Thou shalt not suffer a witch (sorceress) to live.” Exodus 22:18 and “The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the LORD your God forbids you to do such things.” Deuteronomy 18:14

We are at a time in our lives where we will have to decide to whom we will serve; The kingdom of darkness and death, or the Kingdom of Heaven with Jesus, which is of light and life everlasting.

Paul used imprecations against those who did not love Yahweh in I Corinthians 16:22: If anyone has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come! Paul was calling for the destruction of evil.

The word “accursed” from the Greek anathema, originally meant: “something dedicated,” but as it was used day to day, it began to be used only of that which was dedicated to evil. And then, it came to be used to indicate the end of things that were dedicated to evil – that is, destruction. (Liddell-Scott, Greek English Lexicon)

And if you read through Matthew 23 you will see Jesus speaking mightily over the scribes and Pharisees. For example look at verses 15 and 33.

15) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

33) Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Jesus has just spoken imprecations over them and get this, the word “woe” means, “a curse.” It carries with it grief, sorrow, misery and a heavy calamity. *Yahweh’s ways are meant to save all that can be saved. These calamities are sent to turn people back to Jesus, if it is possible.

Jesus and Paul both recognized evil and had no problem coming against it.

There is more. Remember earlier we looked at imprecatory prayers, which “invoke evil upon or curse” one’s enemies.

Do you know what the word invoke means?

To invoke means to request help from someone, especially a god when you want to improve a situation; to use a law in order to achieve something.

In other words, to invoke evil upon or curse an enemy in this imprecatory prayer means we are going to the Judge of the Bible, the Holy One Of Israel, The Creator of All things, the Sovereign God Yahweh, seeking Him to improve a situation.

We are NOT personally cursing anyone. We are taking a situation to Him and petitioning Him for His Help and Power against EVIL.

When I release an imprecatory prayer to Yahweh, I leave it at His Feet, I give it to Him and how He handles it is “His Business.” This is a prophetic act to release all this stuff in me and surrender it to Him and His Power to save or destroy.

Do you TRUST Him to be wise and powerful enough to make the right decision regarding your prayer petition? I do!

Remember the Scripture: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Imprecatory prayers are the most powerful and safe warfare prayers to pray I know of, because we can trust Yahweh to make the right decisions regarding evil. He knows what is evil and according to over 100 Scriptures in the Bible, He hates evil and as long as we pray and let him know we hate these things too and do not condone them, I know that I know, He will bring His judgment and move against evil enemies coming against us.

Proverbs 6:16-19 says:

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Today, I listened to a confirmation hearing where Senator Rand Paul was questioning President Biden’s assistant secretary of health “nominee,” Rachel Levine, who is transgender from male to female, on the issue of genital mutilation.

I must admit I was horrified at the things I was hearing Rand Paul ask, which I had no clue were happening, especially to “MINORS.”

Rand Paul question, “Do you support the government intervening to override the parents consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?”

“American culture is now normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul continued. “Dr. Levine, you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going through puberty, as well as surgical destruction of a minor’s genitalia.”

Paul went on to argue that many children with gender dysphoria eventually have the condition resolve on its own, asking Levine if adults should interrupt that process in minors.

It should be noted the press and many of our leaders immediately raised anger against Rand Paul for even asking these types of questions and get this: Secretary Levine refused to answer his questions. However, she invited him to come talk privately with ”her” at her office, because he evidently he did not understand the “complexity of this nuanced field.”

Now we are talking about minors here and this same thing has been happening with minors regarding abortions being done without parental consent. I am not sure at this point, what age is too young for these government leaders, where they will NOT do these things. At birth in the future and who is paying for this?

So now, we are going to take young children and mutilate their bodies at an early age. Question, how many of you know when we are children, as we grow up, our thoughts and desires change? Many tom- boys like me, grew up to be very feminine women and mothers.

How would you put back breasts and penis’ on people who grew up and changed their minds? Sorry if the graphic description offends you, but I don’t care. This is of the devil. This is fantasy. It is make believe. No matter what a girl or boy does to try and change their sex, it will never happen, their DNA and cell structure will not change. So it is a sick and evil lie. This is genitalia mutilation of children and it should be illegal for any minor….This makes me sick!

We need good godly leaders, solid counselors and intercessors to step in here and lawyers to fight for the laws to protect minors. How about the need for parental rights to be upheld and do you see the need for Imprecatory Prayers to be released to the Throne Room of Yahweh!

Oh Father Yahweh. I cry out to You for our Nation and our people. Do not let Your ear be deaf to our cries or Your Eyes blind to the anguish on our faces and tears in our hearts.

Father You see the laws being sent to the House and the Senate, which are evil in their intent. Oh My Father, have mercy, for I have heard the plans of the enemy who no longer hides, but flaunts his evil agenda for everyone to see, especially against the children of this Nation. I cry out for You, Yahweh, for Your Judgment against the evil mutilation of children and the abortion of children even after birth. Shut the mouths of the evil ones, remove them and put another in their office, In the Name of Yahshua, I pray and Father I remind you of Psalm 69:22-28

Let their own table before them become a snare; and when they are at peace, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see, and make their loins tremble continually. Pour out your indignation upon them, and let your burning anger overtake them. May their camp be a desolation; let no one dwell in their tents. For they persecute him whom you have struck down, and they recount the pain of those you have wounded. Add to them punishment upon punishment; may they have no acquittal from you. Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; let them not be enrolled among the righteous. Psalms 69:22-28 ESV

Prayer For Or Against Our Enemies

Prayer

For Or Against

Enemies

Hello Everyone:

I want to share some things with you personally and with the Churches of Jesus Christ, no matter the denomination, concerning our ability to lift up the power of our prayers to a higher level, for such a time as this.

The day after the Presidential Election we had Wednesday Night Church and I did not want to go, but I did. Ever been there? Pastor Ray was ready for us and began to give Scriptures regarding anxiety. Well, I had that for sure! He began with Philippians 4:6-7

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

He covered all the bases and added, I Timothy 2:1-2

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

I am not sure if anyone else was squirming or not, I pretty much just looked down as thoughts went through my head like a roller coaster. He continued on for about a half an hour and then finally stopped. It was quiet. I love Pastor Ray and I treasure the favor he gives to me to minister at Victory Christian, so trying to be wise in situations like this and yet honest, can be challenging.

I just could not sit there quietly and nod, acting like everything was OK, because in my spirit, it was not. So, I shared the truth in me and told him and the group, “I am just not there yet. Maybe it is just too soon for me to shake off what I am “feeling.” (I know feelings lie), but there is something bugging me on the inside about praying for this new administration, which is not normal for me, because I know we are to pray for those who are our leaders and that Yahweh puts them all into place. But I also remember when Yahweh ruled and the people cried out for a king. He gave them what they wanted (Saul), not what was the best for them. So, He listens to what is being said. Food for thought.

Ever heard the expressions, “I have a check in my spirit, or Something is out of kilter?” That’s where I was and then Pastor Ray brought up:

Matthew 5:44: But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

I know these scriptures too, but I also know, I am not sure how to pray right now. I guess you could say, “I have issues!” I need to hear a Word from My Father to teach me His Ways and bring me wisdom and understanding, because in my spirit, I am hearing Jeremiah 1:10:

See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”

And don’t forget to add: “All” prophets are also intercessors, called to be “Watchers” on the wall, standing in the gap for Nations. Ezekiel 22:30

And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.

No where do I read “Christians” are to condone, compromise, or come into agreement with evil, or that as Christians, we are “Door Mats” for evil to tread upon and defile the Name and House of Yahweh and Yahshua/Jesus.

So, how and what do I prophetically pray, declare, proclaim and prophesy over what is happening? Do I pray for evil enemies? I have questions, so I went into the Scriptures and looking for teachers of the Word to help me understand how and what I should pray – so I can make a difference and line up with what Yahweh wants to do!

I found David, the “Warrior King” of the Bible

Psalm 1

The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the [a]ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he [b]meditates day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the [c]rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

David describes two types of “people” here, the righteous planted like a tree and the ungodly as the chaff the wind blows away. In our Bible studies Sunday morning, we are reading through a book called, the Power of the Blood Covenant, Malcom Smith and it is teaching us about – being in covenant.

Covenant truth reveals two types of people in the “World,” those who are “covenant keepers” and those who are “covenant breakers.” Which are we? Keep that in mind.

Psalm 112
The Blessed State of the Righteous
Praise The Lord

1 Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, Who delights greatly in His commandments. 2 His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches will be in his house, And his righteousness [b]endures forever. 4 Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5 A good man deals graciously and lends; He will guide his affairs with discretion.

6 Surely he will never be shaken; The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance. 7 He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. 8 His heart is established; He will not be afraid, Until he sees his desire upon his enemies. 9 He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever; His [c]horn will be exalted with honor.

10 The wicked will see it and be grieved; He will gnash his teeth and melt away; The desire of the wicked shall perish.

Notice the covenant keepers receive “positive sanctions.” These are blessings. The covenant breakers receive “negative sanctions.” These are curses. David brought forth this truth in Psalm 1 and it continues through many of the Psalms. David is known as a “man after God’s Heart.” He is the one who praises and worships Yahweh for all of His creations and yet, in Psalm 104 David, in the middle of the praise, evidently senses something else and in the last verse (35) suddenly he writes:

Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.

Oh my goodness, did you get that? David just prayed for sinners to be removed and wicked to be gone and then praised God. How does this work? If I prayed that in Church, I am sure someone would “lovingly” (maybe) come point out and correct me saying, your prayer has no love or compassion for a poor lost soul who has been led astray and now your prayer will surely condemn an unsaved sinner to hell. This view may be a tradition passed down in the Church, but is it the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, about how we should pray?

Our Warring King David seemed to be using a different style of warfare prayer we don’t hear much about, which is tied into the Courts of Heaven and seeking Yahweh for His Kingdom Coming of Justice and Righteousness here on the earth. This warring prayer style is called, “Imprecatory Prayer” and it is found in the Old and New Testaments, not just in the Psalms.

And just for the record: There is no separation or contradiction in what is written in the Old Testament from the New; both are the Bible and both confirm each other, you just have to study and go a little deeper to find the continuity.

What is imprecatory prayer or imprecation?

An imprecation is an invocation of judgment, calamity, or a curse upon one’s enemies or the enemies of God and it should be known, such imprecatory curses are found all through the Bible. This is not kid stuff and these prayers need to be done with great care, wisdom and clean hands.

Imprecatory prayers form an integral part of the covenant renewal ceremony in Deuteronomy Chapters 27-30; Rev 6:10 and some of the most powerful are found in the Psalms. (Psalms 7, 35, 55, 58, 69, 109, 137 and 139).

An imprecation is a curse or a denunciation conveying a wish or threat of evil. Imprecatory praying is, to pray for evil or misfortune, upon someone or some activity. It is a malediction, anathema, and an execration.

The Apostle Paul (NT) used an imprecation when he said:

If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. (I Corinthians 16:22)

The word “anathema” means to be set aside for certain and sure destruction, to be cursed, and to be doomed and damned. Maranatha refers to our Lord’s coming.

Literally, Paul prayed: If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be cursed, doomed and damned at our Lord’s coming.

He also used the term “anathema” in Gal. 1:8-9: But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Do you think Paul was unloving, uncharitable and unchristian when he prayed God would doom, damn, and destroy all of those who do not love the Lord Jesus Christ and those who pervert the gospel of grace and preach another gospel? My vote is NO! He is standing on the truth of the gospel in the Scriptures, not on an opinion to make everyone feel good.

Everyone wants to read and sing about the Goodness of God and that is well and good, but we should not forget, we have a covenant calling us into righteousness. To forget or dismiss the warnings regarding negative sanctions or curses revealed in Leviticus 6 and Deuteronomy 28 is dangerous and a disservice to the Body of Christ.

Did you know, when you pray the Lord’s Prayer, you are praying a imprecatory prayer?

Our Father Who Art In Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done, In Earth As It Is In Heaven.

When you pray for Yahshua/Jesus to come, you are praying for judgment to come to the World, those who are sinners and evil to be destroyed.

Too much to consider? Here is a comment/question Martin Luther shared for all of us to ponder.

“We should pray that our enemies be converted and become our friends, and if not, that their doing and designing be bound to fail and have no success and that their persons perish rather than the Gospel and the Kingdom of Christ.

Do you prefer the wicked or Christ prevail? Do you prefer the kingdom of Christ over the kingdom of evil? I had much rather the wicked perish than the gospel and the Kingdom of Christ.”

Imprecatory Prayer – Part Two Next

Trump Offers His Life

Hello Everyone:

Yesterday we all heard about the President and his wife testing positive to the Covid Virus. Immediately the news outlets and social media
exploded with comments on both sides of the isle regarding well wishes, not so well wishes and a renewed debate on the issue of wearing masks.

However, there is one issue being ignored, which I believe is the most important and compelling for every single American and more than that, every single person in the world today.

From the New York Times yesterday, ” President Trump has received a dose of an experimental antibody cocktail being developed by the drug maker Regeneron, in addition to several other drugs, including zinc, vitamin D and the generic version of the heartburn treatment Pepcid, according to a letter from his doctor that was released by the White House Friday afternoon.

Mr. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, announced early Friday morning that they had tested positive for the coronavirus. The president has a low-grade fever, nasal congestion and a cough, according to two people close to Mr. Trump. In the letter, Mr. Trump’s doctor, Dr. Sean P. Conley, said “he completed the infusion without incident” and that he “remains fatigued but in good spirits.”

There are no approved treatments for Covid-19, but the Regeneron treatment is one of the most promising candidates, along with another antibody treatment developed by Eli Lilly. Both are being tested in patients around the country. Initial results have suggested that they can reduce the level of the virus in the body and possibly shorten hospital stays — when they are given early in the course of infection.

Although Regeneron’s product has not been authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration, companies can grant access to their experimental treatments through compassionate use, for example, if all other options have failed and a patient might die without trying the drug.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/02/health/trump-antibody-treatment.html

In the midst of all the news and social reports, does anyone else realize what President Trump just did? He stepped up to let doctors try experimental drugs on him. He asked permission from the FDA to use his own body as a test case. Think about that.

He could have just played it safe, quarantined and used the status quo of what is being used in the medical field today against Covid. Notice Melania stayed at the White House, I did not hear she was being given these experimental drugs.

Could it be he was moved to Walter Reed, because he has endangered his life of 74 years to use these new techniques, not only for himself, but for ALL of us? Has he just put his life on the line for us?

I don’t want to miss the importance and the incredible decision this man has made again, stand in the gap for America and make her, not only GREAT again, but HEALTHY again.

If this experimental cocktail brings the Vaccine, which will break the hold of Covid – OFF this Nation and the World, it will be because of, not only the doctors, scientists and prayer warriors all working behind the scenes, but also because the leader of the free world, President Donald J Trump, offered his life.

I believe the scripture, for this moment of time is:

 

Father I lift up this man Trump and his whole house and I thank You for Your Hand Upon Him, for surely You sent him to us, for such a time as this. Raise him up Father, he still has a lot to do for this Nation and the World, in the Name of Yahshua.

Words Carry Spirits – Pray For Our Nation

Hello Firestorm:

Tonight my spirit is grieving, as I hear people saying hateful and deadly things over President Trump and his wife. Regardless of your political views, calling for the willful death of a person, any person, is demonic and evil. It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not, most people should know murder is not the right thing to do. You may think there is no harm done by calling death and destruction upon someone, but what if I told you, saying death and destruction into the atmosphere against other people, may boomerang and come back to haunt and hurt you?

Doctors today have proven the words we speak, activate chemical responses, from our brains. If we speak good things over our family and friends, our brains react and release good chemicals called feel good endorphins and guess what, we get to feel good too. Associating with positive people who are happy, encouraging, comforting and exhorting is important and extremely heathy for each one of us.

According to Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Robert Waldman, words can literally change your brain. Positive words, such as “peace” and “love,” can alter the expression of genes, strengthening areas in our frontal lobes and promoting the brain’s cognitive functioning.

However, Negative attitudes and feelings of helplessness and hopelessness can create chronic stress, which upsets the body’s hormone balance, depletes the brain chemicals required for happiness, and damages the immune system. Chronic stress can actually decrease our lifespan. Being around people who are negative, hateful, discouraging and continue to speak words of death and destruction creates a boomerang effect, where all these emotions manifest IN and UPON us.

I compare it to what happened to the Ghost Busters when they met up with the ghost (spirit), they got slimmed, dripping with some kind of
supernatural protoplasmic stuff. Negativity and evil thoughts can make you feel heavy, dirty, slimmed and your brain is releases chemicals adding to your depression. Now you are in trouble and need to learn how to get delivered from the spirits of heaviness and depression.

Like many things in life, negativity, can become a habit. Frequent criticism, cynical thoughts, and denial can create neural pathways in the brain that encourage sadness. These negative tendencies can cause our brain to distort the truth and make it even more difficult to break the negative cycle.

In other words when you get so full of hate and negative thoughts you can’t even understand what is right and wrong, good or evil and you will do things, releasing your anger and hate upon other people, who you don’t even know and some who may be trying to help you.

It is said it takes 5 positive comments to combat every negative one in your brain. Think about that. You may think you are getting even, or being cool, so you can fit in with those you are running with by spewing anger and hate, but in the long run, you are damaging yourself.

NOTE: In the spiritual realm, words are like containers. They carry power and they carry spirits. This is the same thing the doctors and scientists are saying. If I say to you, “I HATE you,” it doesn’t make you feel good does it? If you say to your child, “You will never amount to anything,” guess what, their brain registers with that and in the spiritual realm, demonic spirits will whisper those same words in their ears, over and over, year after year, until they actually believe them and begin to live in that attitude.

Are you getting this? I am pretty sure everyone of us has had someone say something cruel to us, which opened the door for spirits come into our heart. Sooner or later their voices will come forth to condemn and remind us of those same words over and over again in our head, until we loose it and run out into the night screaming STOP, STOP, somebody make them STOP!

At that point, we need the Spirit of Christ to come and help us get delivered and set us back on the right path to the good things our Father in Heaven created us to do. There are better things to do than burning down our cities and willingly killing people of all ages. There is no future for any of us, unless we come together and learn how to help each other. Let us all pray for our Nation and seek Yahweh, who created it, to be Merciful and help us through this storm.

Father Yahweh I thank You for Your Mercies. as they are new every morning and oh Father, we need new mercies every day. I know You see the chaos and anger spreading across our Nation, but I also know You see the many who are on their knees and crying out for You to help us. I thank You For Your Words, which are Powerful and Mighty to the pulling down of strongholds and principalities and rulers.

So, I speak forth the Blood of Jesus Christ and I say over this Nation, No weapon formed against us shall prosper. Yay, though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death we will fear no evil for You are with us and You said, You know the thoughts You have for us and they are for good and for our soul to prosper. Oh Father I speak these words over The United States and I thank You for calling us to speak life and not death.

Those words, which have been spoken by the deceived, those which have been released through witchcraft, spells, and incantations for death and destruction, I rebuke them and I say they shall not have any power and will fall to the ground harmless and the hidden agendas against Your People Father are hereby declared VOID tonight! I call forth life and life more abundantly, for that is what You have said You want for us. Let it be Father what You say and not what the enemy of our souls says.

Help us oh Mighty, Mighty, Yahweh for we are helpless to stand without You. You are our Protector, our Provider, our Deliverer and we are Your Children. Hallelujah! You Reign and Rule over the United States of America and we call out Your Name as LORD over ALL from the North, the South, The East and The West. Glory and Honor to You Yahweh in the Name of Yahshua…..

The Glory Of Yahweh Shines Down

Hi Everyone:

Risa’s nephew, Derek, was at the September 24th a rally in North Carolina, where President Trump was speaking. He took two of following pictures, which swept my breath away. Risa lives here in Tennessee and has been on the Firestorm leadership team for many years, so I do not doubt the authenticity of these pictures. Everyone seems to be looking for a prophetic word, a sign, a blast or the Rapture. Well, here is what I believe is one of those supernatural signs, for those who have eyes to see.

We all know the camera captures things the natural eye cannot see. This is one of those times. And before you say this photo was photo shopped or it was light in the building, take a look at this picture. This is an outdoor rally and there are no big lighting stands hanging over our President, except for the light coming down from heaven, focused exclusively on him.

I love the flag whipping in the breeze and again, notice the sun shining through in the midst of the dark clouds. This picture is prophetic in nature. Our President standing in the midst of the dark clouds, bringing forth his message, with the light of the Sun (Son) backing him up. Hallelujah!

My Thoughts:

Look not to personalities in this election, look to the platform backing up the Word of Yahweh. Our Nation hinges, once again on the wisdom and tenacity of the Body of Christ – The Church. Rise and go forth and put your hand on the ballot button and PUSH to cast your vote.

Not voting is a vote for the opposing candidate, where you join in to endorse the celebration and legal right for abortion at any age, anytime even at birth, open borders, tax increases, free social security, no freedom of speech, the removal of the right to bear arms, free college, healthcare and more. What is Free to some, makes me wonder, who are those who Pay? I believe it means – you and me.

On top of all that stuff, there is something else possible and it lays heavy on my soul. I say this with great trembling, but the precipice we are standing on could well be the beginning of the silencing and removal of the Church of Jesus Christ. Are you ready for that? I’m not!

I pray you will listen carefully for the Voice of God in the midst of the roar from the world. For me, I declare and I prophesy, “No weapon formed against me or the United States of America and/or her people shall prosper. For I am here, on the wall, declaring the rebirth of the greatest promises Yahweh has ever given anyone, the gift this Nation, the freedoms in our Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the gift of salvation and eternal life through Jesus, The Christ, as written in the Bible.

What are you standing on, declaring and prophesying?

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

Just so you know……..

Palm Sunday Reminds US, Christ Is King

Palm Sunday Reminds US, Christ Is King

Hello Firestorm:

As I look at Palm Sunday, I remember…..This was the first day I officially lead a worship service at Pastor Arthur Lewis’ church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I had visited his church for a one day visit with our members and Pastor Purser from Cornerstone Church, Smyrna, Tennessee. A few months later, I heard an audible voice in the back of my car driving back from Alabama and the message was, “Go see Pastor Lewis.”

Pastor Lewis is a very tall black man who resembles Morgan Freeman and he is famous in my book for a great big smile and giving the most hugs I have ever received, no disrespect to our Victory Christian member, Randall (smile).

I walked in and he looked at me and said, “What are you doing here?” I admit I was a bit out of place as his church congregation had only 2-3 other white members. I responded, I am not sure, but I know the LORD sent me, so what do you need?

He said, well my worship leader is on vacation for a couple weeks. Interesting don’t you think? You just gotta love Yahweh God when He sets you up and also brings in some much needed on the job training. I agreed to help.

I had been working on some worship songs and got excited about going to Walmart and buying up all the artificial ferns they had. I remember placing them on the floor where everyone had to come in and to my surprise everyone pretty much picked them all up and waved them during the service. They also took them home. (smile)

I ended up being with Pastor Lewis for a couple years until God move me and in my stead brought in another prophet, Grace to help him. On our last meeting we cried together. I have a lot of respect for Pastor Lewis and his family.

So for me Palm Sunday has a wonderful memory of friendship and a remembrance of how God spoke to me and directed me to another step on the ladder of preparation for what was coming next.

For those who do not know the heart of the reason for Palm Sunday, here is an article I pray will give you a solid foundation for our Palm Sunday Celebration.

5 Things about Palm Sunday That Remind Us

Christ Is King

https://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/debbie-mcdaniel/5-things-about-palm-sunday-that-remind-us-christ-is-king.html

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that begins the Holy Week. It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Palm Sunday -April 5, 2020.

“Many churches celebrate Palm Sunday, which is always the Sunday before Easter. Maybe your church has children waving palm branches to help them connect to the story. But while this is a triumphal entry, it is Jesus’ first step toward His death.

Many of us will be celebrating Palm Sunday at home this year due to the coronavirus quarantine that has swept our nation and the globe. To help you focus on the meaning and symbolism of the holiday even in the midst of change and uncertainty, we have written 5 Ways to Celebrate Palm Sunday at Home.

Matthew 21:4 tells us: ‘This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying, ‘Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’ *The prophecy is cited from Zechariah 9:9 and Isaiah 62:11.

Jesus had become somewhat of a celebrity among people who had heard of the miraculous raising of Lazarus from the dead, and they wanted to see Him and treat Him like a king. But Jesus wasn’t arriving to be their king on account of Lazarus; the story of Lazarus would have had the religious leaders in even more of an uproar and determined to put an end to His life, which He knew . . . Jesus’ glory would be greater than that of a local king.”

Palm Sunday Bible Story

Bethphage

Matthew 21:1-11 – Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

On the heels of Palm Sunday, as we begin this Holy Week, may we constantly be reminded of its significance and value for our lives today. That very important day in history, when Jesus began His journey towards the cross.

Yet maybe in the midst of busy lives, on the heels of Spring Break, or in all of the upcoming thoughts about Easter, the real meaning of it may, even unintentionally, get missed. His Word reveals such great truths in every part of this story. Truths that draw us closer towards Christ, reminding us that He alone is King…

5 Things about Palm Sunday that Remind Us
Christ is King

1. God’s Word tells us the people cut palm branches and waved them in the air, laid them out on the ground before Jesus as He rode into the city. The palm branch represented goodness and victory and was symbolic of the final victory He would soon fulfill over death.

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Cor. 15:55

2. Jesus chose to ride in on a donkey, which directly fulfilled Old Testament prophecy of Zech. 9:9. In Biblical times, it was common for kings or important people to arrive by a procession riding on a donkey. The donkey symbolized peace, so those who chose to ride them showed that they came with peaceful intentions. Jesus even then reminded us that He is the Prince of Peace.

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Zech. 9:9

3. When the people shouted “Hosanna!” they were hailing Christ as King. That word actually means “save now,” and though in their own minds they waited for an earthly king, God had a different way in mind of bringing true salvation to all who would trust in Him.

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!” Ps. 118:26
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Rom. 10:9

4. The Bible says that Jesus wept for Jerusalem. In the midst of the praise of the moment, He knew in His heart that it wouldn’t be long that these same people would turn their backs on Him, betray Him, and crucify Him. His heart broke with the reality of how much they needed a Savior.

“As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it, and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace–but now it is hidden from your eyes.” Luke 19:41-42

5. Palm Sunday reminds us that the reign of Christ is far greater than any the mind of man could ever conceive or plan. Man looked for someone to fight their battles in the present day world. Yet God had the ultimate plan of sending His Son to fight the final battle over death. This is the greatness of why we celebrate this week. Because of Christ’s ultimate sacrifice, we can be set free of death.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,'”John 11:25

We have so much to be grateful for this week. The enemy knows that, and you can bet, he’s going to do everything he can to try and distract us away from the true meaning of what this Holy Week means. Don’t let him win.

In this Holy Week, may God direct our thoughts and attention towards what matters most, Jesus Christ our King…

Let’s choose to focus on worshipping our Lord, thanking Him for the gift of His sacrifice, celebrating the power of the Resurrection, and the new life found in Him alone. Grace. “Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Cor. 9:15

Palm Sunday Bible Verses

Zechariah 9:9 – Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

John 12:12-19 – The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! ”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Blessed is the king of Israel!” Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written: “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.”

Luke 19:11-44 – “Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’ ” Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” They replied, “The Lord needs it.”

They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:

“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

Lord God, I give you thanks, for you are good, and your mercy is endless. Here I stand, at the start of this holy week, this week in which your church remembers Jesus’ passion and death, and I am distracted by many things. Turn my eyes now to the One who comes in your name, the one who opens the gates of righteousness, the one who answers when we call.

I bless you, Lord, for shining your light upon me, and for sending your son to us, in human frailty. To walk the road we walk. Open my eyes that I may see him coming, and may praise him with a pure heart. And may walk in the way of his suffering, and share also in his resurrection. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

Who/What Caused the Pandemic – Part 2

“Who/What CAUSED the Pandemic?

Part Two

Bonnie Nelson

 

In the first Post, “Who is the Pandemic,” there is information about the root of demonic power lying behind the Coronavirus. Here I would like to address the recent New York Times article, “The Religious Right’s Hostility To Science Is Crippling Our Response to the Coronavirus,” suggesting we caused it and they are not the only media voice claiming we are idiots and rejecting Science.

I hear what they are saying. Because we believe in the protection of Yahweh God and are not in fear over this virus, we are denying the fact it could kill us, which is obviously wrong. Most all of us realize we could die at any moment from whatever. However, we are given a hope in this life knowing it is not the only life we have. Those who have received Christ, as our Savior and Master are holding on to His promises of another life to come, a glorified and changed body, liken to His when He came out of that tomb fully alive. We believe His resurrection power is in us, because of what is written in the Word (I Thessalonians 4).

I am also led to read through Romans, Chapter 1:16-17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous will live by faith.”[e]

Evangelicals are not denying the Science or the Power of this virus. Most all Evangelicals and quite a few who don’t yet know Jesus, are praying against this virus. If you are praying to God against this virus, you are certainly not denying it. Those who “know Christ” on a deeper level are also praying, but adding declarations, rebuking and releasing words (spiritual weapons) into the spiritual realm proclaiming, commanding and warring against the source of demonic power empowering this Coronavirus – to be taken down.

We are praying for those who are in the medical and science fields to receive divine guidance and wisdom to bring forth the vaccines needed to stop this virus attacking our natural bodies. We recognize the two realms of this battle, the natural and the spiritual. None of us believe panic, pandemonium, anger, hoarding, rebellion, depression, suicide and such are natural phenomenons. We stand on the fact and spiritual understanding, they are all connected to a spirit called FEAR. There is no Science or Medicine, which can heal you of fear, it is a spiritual issue.

The New York times did bring up a question we Evangelicals should address. Who/What caused this Pandemic?

Don’t be shocked, but I believe, we as Evangelicals, did have a part in causing this virus or plague! Before you throw the stone, stop and give me a moment to bring forth why I believe this is Biblically grounded. Has this happened before? Yahweh God says He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. If we look back in time to Israel (whom we are linked vine-branch) we can see many times when Israel fell into sin and perversion and Yahweh sends Prophets to warn them to repent, which means not just to say your sorry, but to CHANGE your ways. Can anyone of us say we are any different today from what Israel was doing back then?

This Nation was founded on Judeo-Christian values, that is who we are. Not many understand the definition of Judeo-Christian. Do you see the dash between Judeo and Christian, that stands for a “link.” According to the dictionary:

Judeo-Christian is a term, which is used to group Christianity and Judaism together, either in reference to Christianity’s derivation from Judaism, both religions’ common use of the Bible, or due to perceived parallels or commonalities and shared values between the two religions.

It is the values of the God of Israel and the God of America (His Name is Yahweh), which the men and women who migrated here put into place, which are at the heart of our Nation. They set forth guidelines from Him into our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Every thing we have, every right, every blessing has come from that relationship with our Creator God. We are the branch off the vine of Israel under the LORDSHIP of Yahweh and His Manifested Presence as Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man.
The Power of the Gospel Romans 1
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous will live by faith.”[e]  
So what happened to Israel’s people when they went off into LaLa Land and began to do everything we are doing today, which was and is still an abomination to God?  Start in Romans 1 around verse 18, check it out.
The Word says in claiming to be wise they became fools, they gave into the lusts and degradation of their bodies, homosexual lusts men with men and women with women and some even with animals.  The Bible continues saying they were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice and full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, foolish, faithless, heartless and ruthless. 
Now they knew God’s decree, saying those who practice such things deserve to die, yet they not only did/do them, but even applaud others who practice them. I see this everyday in America, on the streets, on my TV, Internet, News Media’s, commercials and in movies. I have seen the most degrading uses of the human body possible in murdering babies to witchcraft, spells, incantations, false gods and occult scenes happening here on USA soil. That is what they were doing and it is what we are doing here too. 
Will Yahweh bless this Nation or any Nation who is promoting every kind of evil imaginable? That’s not a hard question to answer – NO!
 
I was led to look to the Prophet Haggai and the message Yahweh gave him for the people when they had gone astray. Only 2 chapters in Haggai, so you might want to go there and read the full story. The Word of the LORD came to Haggai and he gave it to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak (Josedech), the high priest.
Watch this: The Prophet went to the authorities with the Word, the government and the priest. Haggai’s first message is a challenge to the political and spiritual leaders, Zerubbabel and Joshua. There is no separation of Church and State here, they are the leaders over the Nation, The Natural and the Spiritual leaders.
Haggai verses 2-5: “Thus says the LORD of hosts (this literally means, “The LORD of ARMIES”). God says to Haggai: “This people says, The time has not come, even the time for the house of the LORD to be rebuilt.”
 

4) And Yahweh challenges them. “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, while this house lies desolate and in waste? Verse 5) Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, “Consider your ways.”

So, the House of the Lord is desolate, while they are building their houses, their ministries, their kingdoms, their corporations, their buildings of whatever, but His House, they don’t think it is time for them to raise His House. Are we so busy building our own paneled/fancy/expensive/mansions, we have lost the desire or understanding of how important it is to build Yahweh’s Houses of Saved Souls?

On to verse 6) Ye have “sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough: ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to “put it into a bag with holes. Again He says, consider your ways……..Can you hear the warning siren? The wealth is leaking out, but do you see a plague anywhere here?

Note: Right now the most powerful economy in the world (the USA) is shut down and all the money is falling through a bag with holes. Can you see the comparison happening? Going on in Verses 7 -11 Yahweh tells them to go up to the mountain and bring wood and build His House and He will take pleasure in it and be glorified. He continues, “You looked for much and lo, it came to little and when ye brought it. home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of ARMIES. Because My House that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.

10) Therefore the heaven over you is stayed from dew, and the earth is stayed from her fruit. 11) And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains and upon the corn and upon the new wine and upon the oil and upon that which the ground bringeth forth and upon men and upon cattle and upon all the. labor of the hands.

Be encouraged……..The government and the priest came together at the Word of the LORD! Watch this!

It was then Zerubbabel and Joshua, the government and the priest with ALL the REMNANT of the people and “obeyed” the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet as the LORD their God had sent him and the people did fear before the LORD. 13) Then spake Haggai the LORD’S Messenger, in the LORD’S message unto the people saying, “I AM with you saith the LORD.

Do you see it? Yahweh says you have not built my house because of all the desires and lusts in your heart. Do you believe Yahweh is speaking about a physical house today? I submit to you He is not, for we are under a new covenant and we are the temples, the buildings, the House of Yahweh, where He lives. He lives in us through the power of Christ in us.

We the Evangelicals have forgotten about being sent out to make disciples, to come out of the buildings and go into the nations and the areas of our culture. We have forgotten to hold the line and beware of compromise and condoning of things, which are an abomination to our God and not to touch the evil things. We have hidden ourselves behind closed doors and now those doors are closed and we have been evicted. One friend said, “The church (thats us) has left the building. Ponder on these things. It might be a good thing.

We have areas in our culture where we are needed. Government, Religion, Media, Arts/Entertainment, Family, Education and Business, all of these areas hold the future of our Nation. Believers have to come out and go into all these areas and begin to shine and show our standards of excellence and supernatural gifting’s of ingenuity and wisdom in our work areas. We raise the standards where people will be led to follow our lead. Many in our schools don’t even realize there is a God who created Science and only know of Evolution, their rights and sex education.

We are not Tyrants, we are servants Yahweh is refining and watching to see if we will go out into the nations to tell them He is a Healer and Lover of our Souls. One of the neatest quotes I read this week reveals a lot of who we are and the calling we have. (Invading Babylon, Lance Wallnau and Others)

Royalty is my identity. Servanthood is my assignment. Intimacy with God is my life source. So, before God, I’m an intimate. Before people, I’m a servant.
Before the powers of hell, I’m a ruler, with no tolerance for their influence.
Wisdom knows which role we are to fulfill at the proper time.

The Coronavirus is a time out, a wakeup by a gracious God who sees all His kids slipping away from Him, the evil invading our Nation, the fighting and bickering. not working together and now, we are quarantined in our room. Yahweh didn’t send the Coronavirus and He didn’t allow it. It was called up and out from the Pit of Hell, because of all the people calling it forth by indulging into the things, which belong to the kingdom of darkness. Remember, Sin separates us from a Holy, Righteous God and “His Blessings and Protection.”

The call is and has always been to be like our God, “made in His Image”. He said I AM Holy so you be holy. If we are made in His image and follow His Ways, He is with us, if not, He is not with us. The call is to repent, turn away from evil, pray for our government and spiritual leaders and to watch over the words we release, for it is said, what you sow you will reap.

We can rebuild the foundations of our Nation and raise up the houses (temples) of Yahweh, one person at a time. Be encouraged Yahweh is not done with America, you or me. We are called and in the place He needs us to be during this time. I am repenting and on my knees, crying out to Yahweh for Him to keep His Hand on our World, but I am also taking the authority He has given me to war against this enemy of our Nation with the spiritual weapons He has given me. The enemy of our souls and our Nation is called the Coronavirus, alias Satan. Let us take authority over our flesh, come together and bring praise, thanksgiving and worship into the courts of Heaven celebrating and honoring our God, Yahweh, in and through the Name of Yahshua/Jesus.

May you and your whole house prosper in this time of awakening, in the Name of Yahshua.
