"Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls."
1 Peter 1:8-9 (KJV)
1 Peter 1:8-9 (KJV)
The Battle Isn’t Over!
Exodus 17:11-13 (KJV)
11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
How Does This Word Apply To Us Today?
We are in a time of change in our lives and in this country. Even though victory is in our sights and in our grasp, we must not lose our focus. We must continue to praise the Lord!
I see saints giving up their praises daily and worshiping the idol of technology. Children are being raised, not by parents, but by technology.
Our homes are caught up in the distraction of busyness. Our children are distracted by their programs and their parents distracted by their children’s programs, but we must not be distracted says the Lord, for we must remember to keep our hands up in praises to His glorious name!
We have been blessed with His greatness and we are beginning to see healing in our lands. The economy is being awaken like a giant who has been angered. The enemies of our land now shake with trembling, but our hands are becoming weary.
We must continue to praise Him, even if it means Aaron and Hur shall hold them up!
We must not allow the enemy to overcome us, we must continually and forcefully praise the Lord!
The men and women of God must stand firm. His people must lead with prayer, obedience, and holiness! Do not allow yourselves to drop your praise! Do not allow your praise to be ceased in order that you may see your blessings continually rain down upon your families.
Do not allow the Amalek’s of this world prevail against your house says the Lord, but fight for the victory through the praises of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In my dreams, God often gives me visions for the near future or current events. The last vision was a couple of months ago, but now there is a new vision and it feels “like a burning fire, shut up in my bones” (Jeremiah 20:9).
God has shown me the Southern parts of America where we call the “Bible Belt. We are living in the most secular time known as the Post-Christendom world. This is because the place of the church is no longer one of respect and authority. ” I am recognizing that Christianity is no longer a dominant thought in many places once known as this “Bible belt.” The enemy has stolen the place of authority because the church has prostituted its power over to the un-Godly pleasures of lust, greed, and selfishness. God has shown me that this is because He has loosed this belt. The belt has been slipping for a long time, many decades now, but we try to tighten the belt every time we get a chance because we feel threatned. When attendance falls, we tighten. When churches close, we tighten. When fewer services are held, we tighten. We have tightened so much that we can’t allow any more people in because they don’t know if they can be as righteous as us. They see us and they say, we can’t replicate that, we can’t do what they do. They don’t see change or the love of Christ, they see a private building, made for protecting its flock. They see a country club, they see a members-only organization with tax-free status.
Our churches have hoarded their wealth and resources, kept the blessings of the Word to itself. We citizens of the “Bible belt” have become fattened off the Word of the Lord, increasing knowledge and self-righteousness, without bearing the fruit of multiplication. We hide in our four walls and we tighten our belts with our hung over stomachs, with guts full of the Word hanging over our “Bible belt” from our lack of obedience. Did He not tell Noah to multiply? Did He not tell the disciples to multiply in number? Then, why do we not multiply?
The Lord has shown me that the gospel is being spread all around this earth as it never has before and many of His followers are no longer centered in this Bible belt. As this “Bible belt” continues to be tightened in many places, it will burst forth new life! Instead, He will burst this belt and his word shall come forth like an explosion. This will be a big bang, but not like the scientist talk about with the universe. This bang will blast the Word of the Lord forth through the technologies of the air, screens, mobile devices of this age and the next. It has already begun, even as I speak, but an abundance of more is soon to come. Those same children and parents who are distracted by the technologies of this world, will soon have the gospel being brought to them at a much higher rate via the same technology that now distracts them. His outpouring does not end with technology, but shall be brought to the streets, the meeting places, the places of work, and yes the Church. Our God is not done with this age. His Word is yet to be brought forth in such a way as to bring a new awakening to this world.
Sing praises to the Lord of lord’s and the King of kings!
The battle isn’t over, the battle isn’t over, the battle isn’t over, for the fighting has just begun!
Now is the time to take up arms, wear the armor of the Lord, and carry the sword of the Word to His people across the world!
Hear the Lord speak and pick up your praises!
Don’t drop your hands, but remain in a continual state of praise and prayer!
God will bless His people, bless His Church, and surely bless the outpouring of His Spirit upon all the people of the Earth!
