“Lord, what about 2023?”
“Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: ‘Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. 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.’” (Jeremiah 1:9-10) Who is set over the nations?
That scripture had great impact on me many years ago and still does. We can see that God is talking about words, His anointed Words that change nations and kingdoms. How can we have anointed words that change nations? Spend time in the Word every morning, pray in tongues and be led by the God that made the universe. Faith is the foundation that produces change. It’s the unseen that changes what is seen. (1 John 5:4)
In my last email I used an example of prayers that change things: it’s like getting in a roller coaster car, sitting down, and letting the Spirit of God take you where there are demonic strongholds that need to be cast out. The voice of your spirit-man with Holy Spirit knows what to do and where to go. It’s wonderful!
One morning years ago, I was very discouraged about the politics in California. I read the scriptures in Isaiah 40:3-11.
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight
and the rough places smooth; the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:3-5) That verse started Prayer with Purpose in 2011.
So how do we enforce righteousness?
We cannot truly enforce righteousness unless we know who we are in Christ. You can download these scriptures on the PWP website. Speak and meditate on them to drop them into your spirit. This is vitally important, Saints. https://www.prayerwithpurpose.org/who-you-are-in-christ-scriptures.html
You’re Not of the World
So don’t participate in all the bad news. If that dominates your thoughts day and night, it will steal your faith and hope, and make you an ineffective prayer with no joy!
Choose daily to be separated from the sins all around us and seek His face. Limit your time with current events. We know from the Old Testament, when Israel turned its back on Almighty God, Almighty God brought judgment and hardship by allowing enemy forces to come in. Proud, unsaved sinners need to be humble to give their lives to Jesus. Getting the harvest in is our number one priority.
The Righteousness of Intercession and Tongues
What is Intercession? It means to make a petition or intercede on behalf of another. That’s good but additional power is needed. Holy Spirit led intercession gets the job done! It’s similar to a baseball game when a batter gets up to home plate, swings the bat and hits the ball out of the park. He gets a home run. Well, Holy Spirit in the Believer knows how to get a home run! We need Him to win our race! We cannot bring in this huge end-time harvest on our own. He guides us in effectual praying. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16)
Praying in tongues will release Holy Spirit power into the unseen higher realms (heavenlies) to cast out devils against the gospel. Many devils are there by the permission of those children and adults who have been trained in witchcraft and sorcery by Harry Potter and similar books for decades. Far greater in power is the glorious Spirit-filled Church who is seated in heavenly places in Christ that can produce God’s order, the gospel, to our cities. Only the Ekklesia, the called- out ones, can arrest, bind and cast devils out in Jesus’ name! (Ephesians 2:6)
We are divine beings, here on a timed temporary assignment that is getting shorter! We have an end-of-day’s purpose to “to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant, to make the crooked places straight and rough places smooth.” Tongues will embolden us and take us into higher realms of authority so that we can remove the wickedness in the heavens over our cities to set the captives free to hear the gospel. And, tornados should never be allowed to destroy cities in our nation!
The Fallacy of Fear
Many Believers are standing still because they lack knowledge of scripture or are too timid to cast out devils. That’s usually a result of not praying in tongues and not knowing their identity in Christ.
The indwelling Holy Spirit and God’s Word inside us opens up direction and vision as we move and live in two victorious realms; “I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh…and they shall prophecy.” (Acts 2:17) If you move in the power of Holy Spirit, the spirit of fear will fear you and flee. This power of authority is the two voices as one.
The Builder of the Church
“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:18-19) In Matthew 18:18 these words are given to all the disciples.
“Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.”
“Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Remember who you are!
You are the Sheriff in your territory and the weapons of your warfare are not physical because your enemy is not physical. They are demonic spirit beings that Jesus Christ has already stripped in hell. They take advantage of the ignorant. Read Colossians 2:14-15 often.
Jesus gives us His keys of His Kingdom. Where are they? Can you see them? No, His keys are word-weapons coming out of your mouth. They are anointed words of Spirit/spirit! Two beings are required to pull the trigger.
The Time of the Church’s Rapture
“And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
