As I prayed for New York this morning (March 23rd, 2020) this was the image that kept coming before me. We often forget these things because our world moves so fast, but God, He does not forget.
More than anything I long to see the goodness and the glory of God in New York and all across America! I do not want to see the judgments of God upon our land because of the wickedness and sin many are not just living in but celebrating and reveling in.
WE MUST PRAY FOR AWAKENING!
If all we do is pray for mercy and for healing, I believe we have failed! We must pray for Awakening, for eyes to be opened to see the need for repentance, to see how great the sin, and how great God’s love and how great their need is for Christ and His Ways.
AT THE DIRECTION OF GOVERNOR CUOMO
The defiance, arrogance, and pride that brought Governor Cuomo to direct New York to light up the One World Trade Center in pink to celebrate abortion up through birth was almost unthinkable to me. A day of celebration was declared for New York! When I saw this as did many Christians, I admit it, I prayed and asked God to deal with him in regards to this ungodly and defiant act.
OUR NATION MUST BE CALLED TO REPENTANCE:
Why is the Church so afraid to preach the word that convicts the hearts of man? In fact, I had to really pray and think twice about posting this, because I know the backlash and the blacklisting that will come, people calling me a bigot, legalistic, judgmental, and insensitive. What a sad thing.
WHY ARE WE SO AFRAID TO CONFRONT THE SIN?
This is a question we ask in God’s Answer for America. Why are we so afraid to preach the truth and confront the sin in our culture? Could it be that the Church itself has become sin friendly, and is living in unrepentant sin?
Could it be we are more concerned about our popularity as a ministry than we are lost souls on the road to hell? Could it be we don’t want to be called a hater or a bigot? Could it be we just don’t love them enough to tell them the truth? I think that is the real issue – LOVE…. Do we really love them?
LET GOD BREAK US FOR THE NATIONS!
The Secret is LOVE… real Love. I’m not talking about just an emotional response.I believe when we get the heart of God for the lost and deceived it will change everything!
I pray God bring us to a place of repentance as the Church and to a place of great humility and purity. I pray He would break our hearts for the lost and the nations of the earth! This will happen as we humble ourselves in repentance, and seek God’s heart and face in worship and in prayer. Then I pray He give us the wisdom to communicate His love and truth in such a way that the world cannot resist the message.
OUT OF THAT PLACE OF INTERCESSION & BROKENNESS….
I believe it is only out of the place of true intercession and brokenness that the love of God will begin to burn in us like a fire that cannot be extinguished, and we will have to speak!
It’s the love and convicting power of God that will arrest their souls, as we release His word and truth to the nations. Then, we will see them on their knees in the greatest awakening ever seen!
AWAKENING TO GLORY:
Please Join us Saturday nights for Awakening to Glory as we come together and allow God to break us for the nations as we worship and pray for Awakening.
