Do you realize that you were born for such a time as this? A time when everything that can be shaken is shaking throughout the nations! We are now in a time that was prophesied, when it would be hard to tell the truth from the lies! A time when dark spiritual forces are on the rise. Yet, in the midst of it all God is calling His Church to awaken, to arise and to shine the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ into a lost, dark and dying world. It’s time to Awaken the nations and Awaken the Bride, its time for the Church to come alive!

PREPARING A GLORIOUS, VICTORIOUS CHURCH
All this shaking and uncertainty can be glorious if it awakens us and drives us to our knees and deeper into Him, the Rock which is Christ Jesus and the God whose name is Victory!  It’s critical in the days we live to stay very close to Him, so we can know His heart and mind, and stay aligned with His seasons and times. God sees every battle that we may face and He knows the way to victory.

Our Works Being Tried By Fire
The truth is, our works are all being tried by fire, so that which comes forth from us in the days ahead will be pure as gold. God is stripping away and removing all that would hinder as He prepares us to Arise and Shine! What’s on God’s heart and mind is His Church, the nations and the souls of mankind.

Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. I Corinthians 3:13

THE DNA OF THE KING EMBEDDED IN US
As God does His deeper work in us we must remember that we are His children and we have the DNA of the King and a Mighty Warrior embedded in us! It was for this day and hour we were born, not to live in fear of what may be or to pray for escape, but to let Christ in us, the hope of Glory arise and take His place.


A KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN!

As we witness our great nation being shaken in so many ways, let it be a reminder to all of us that we are not of this world, but of a Kingdom that cannot be shaken (Hebrews 12:28) and a Kingdom that has no end (Luke 1:33). As God’s people we can stand strong upon the solid rock of all ages – Christ Jesus! For He will lead us into a sweet and eternal Victory!

Now, thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ…” II Co  2:14.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. Hebrews 12:28

FEAR & THE NEW ADMINISTRATION:
As we watch the new administration settle in with their Executive Pen many of us have felt fear try to grip our hearts as our concerns about the future and a culture gone mad grow day by day.  As God’s people its critical that we don’t go into panic mode, but stay very focused and intentional. We must operate from a higher place, a place of victory, great peace, stability and faith in our great and faithful God.  This in itself is a powerful weapon against the Kingdom of darkness.

THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY AND PERCEIVED DEFEAT
It was unthinkable to us that Joe Biden could actually be sworn in as President of the United States. We couldn’t understand why God would allow such a thing after all the prayers and all the Trump Admin Accomplishments.

This certainly could not be God’s perfect will! After the Inauguration we began to pour out our hearts and question God as to why?  He did answer us clearly and swiftly, and we look forward to sharing that with you later in this article.

As God’s people we cannot put our faith and trust in a man, in a party, in circumstances or situations, as they can all change and turn with the weather. And, in Texas we all know how quickly and drastically that can change.

GOD IS WORKING ON MULTIPLE LEVELS IN MULTIPLE WAYS
First of all, we need to understand that God is working on multiple levels and in multiple ways right now. He’s dealing with His Church, dealing with the nations, with our leaders, and with all of us. Hearts and motives are being tried on all sides and this is a good thing. If we will continue to pray, stay in faith and obey we will see God move in a great way.

IS GOD SETTING US UP FOR A REAL VICTORY? 
What if God is going to do something we never considered? What if what appears to be a defeat is actually a set up for a greater Victory for the Church and for our nation, and what if God’s way is brilliant and so much better than what we could have conceived? See Blog Post:  God needs us to believe!

We know when Christ was crucified it appeared to be a devastating defeat, but in reality it was all part of the plan. A strategy that brought great defeat to the enemy and an overwhelming and everlasting victory for humanity!

We simply must trust and remember that we cannot put God in our neat little box and dictate to him exactly how and when He will answer our prayers. We must trust Him, no matter what the outcome we see at the moment. God alone sees the big picture. He sees the beginning from the end and everything we do not! God sees behind closed doors and deep into the hearts of man. He alone sees what must be done for real victory to come.

GOD’S PLANS ARE GREATER THAN OURS!
Most of what we hear and see is all second hand, fed to us by man, those we do not even know. This is why we must stay very close to God, do our homework and be led by the Holy Spirit. We must take our eyes off of man and search out God’s plan and what’s most important to Him.

” 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 My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

WHAT ABOUT THE PROPHETS… DID THEY MISS IT?
We must always remember that scripture clearly tells us that we see in part. Even the Prophets of The Old Testament saw only in part. The greatest wisdom we can offer regarding the prophetic is I Corinthians 13:8-10

“Love never fails. “But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part.  But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” I Co 13:8-10

WE SEE IN PART & WE PROPHESY IN PART
If a prophet appears to have missed it, it may be they were accurate on the key parts of the prophecy (which could be the case regarding President Trump). Perhaps God did not reveal the timing or the details to the Prophet or the prophecy was contingent upon certain things.

Perhaps God in His brilliant design reveals only part of the plan so we do not become puffed up with knowledge and pride and so we don’t jump in and mess with His plan. Or, perhaps He’s holding back all the details so the enemy cannot derail it. God wants us to keep our eyes on Him and the more sure word of Prophecy which is the written word. I believe time will reveal many things.

In the mean time lets be doers of the word and pray for the Prophetic movement, for clarity, wisdom, purity, and humility. If anyone wants to get it right we do, for the sake of the Church and the integrity of the ministry.

WILL DONALD TRUMP BE PRESIDENT AGAIN?
We cannot promise you that Donald Trump will be President again. What we do know is God is working on many levels to bring about His plans for the Church and America. As His people we need to humble ourselves and live first and foremost to please our King.

“Its Never Been About a Man, But its All About A Plan to Make America Great Again by Bringing God Back in!”

ITS NOT ABOUT A MAN, ITS ALL ABOUT A PLAN!
As many of you know, we have been strong Trump supporters throughout. For us it was never about the man, it was all about the plan to make America great again by bringing God back in. President Trump and his Administration accomplished so much in the short time they had.  Christians who cherished their faith, their families, life, liberty, and America found a leader and Administration unafraid and willing to fight for America and our values.

For us, we were able to overlook President Trump’s tweets and weaker areas because we kept seeing the bigger picture and the hard work being done every day to make America great again. We saw President Trump and his Administration welcoming God back into the White House and blessing Israel and so much more.  These were significant things for us as we believed them signs that God was moving and that a Great Awakening and reformation was on the horizon.

WHY GOD? A HEART WRENCHING CRY ….
It was very difficult for us to accept the Biden Presidency because we knew exactly what he was going to bring in.  When hearing of all the Executive Orders being signed, it was initially devastating. It felt as though the death of a nation and the death of a dream for Awakening and reformation was taking place, but at the same time we knew God was not done and would not abort His plan. With a heartfelt cry we asked God why, as many have. God, how could you allow this to happen, why, and what have we done wrong?

GOD CLEARLY ANSWERS ME
The answer came clearly and swiftly as I was wept.   First, He said “Cindy, I want to move in this nation even more than you want it, I want to bring Awakening, healing and reformation, but there are certain things that must be done first.” I sensed hope rising in me as He spoke.  There were two things He showed me as He reminded me of the critical call and message in our book “God’s Answer For America”. 


1. THE HEART OF THE CHURCH
One thing He made clear was that the Church could not expect a genuine victory with all the infighting, anger, pride, hatred, personal attacks and slander going on during this season.  If we are going to fight, then we must fight right in God’s sight! 

Like never before we need to keep our hearts and lives pure and understand that Satan is working very hard to defile the Church, to set us up for failure and to bring us down to his low level of operation.   As God’s people we must stay alert to his strategies and guard our hearts diligently and choose to operate biblically.

2. AWAKENING…. AND THE SOULS OF THE NATION
As I wept He told me, “Its about the souls Cindy, I need to put this on hold,  there are things that must be done first. I want the souls.” As He showed me these things I could feel the deep cry for souls!  This is foremost on God’s heart! He desires that all men be saved and come to the knowledge of the Truth (I Tim 2:4)

What Does a Real Victory Look Like to God?
Let’s ask ourselves, what does a real, true victory look like to God?  We know it can never just be about winning an Election, getting our guy in and changing laws and legislation.  This alone would not be a real and complete victory in God’s sight.

Think about this, what if we got everything we conservative Christians wanted and President Trump got back in and yet half the nation is filled with rage, hatred and deceit, marching in the streets for their gay rights, their 100 genders, and fighting to kill and abort, all while racing towards an eternal judgment and hell. This would not be a real win for any of us. It would just tear our nation a part. Remember, the goal here and our prayers are for Awakening, salvation and the healing of our land and not just for our man to get in. 

GOD DOESN’T WANT A PARTIAL VICTORY! 
God does not want a partial victory, He wants a complete victory! Yes, it is very important who our elected officials are, its important that we engage in the public square and everywhere, but what God wants at this time is a
complete and absolute victory and this must include an awakening and the souls of our nation.

THE LAWS AND LEGISLATION WILL CHANGE
The real truth is, when hearts and lives are truly transformed by the power of God, the laws and legislation will change, it won’t be a forced or manipulated change, but it will be transformation at the root that will affect the fruit, and everything will begin to change – our laws and legislation and the entire nation. So where do we begin, what will truly bring about this Great Awakening we so desperately need?

“Imagine, A Nation on it’s Knees in the Greatest Awakening Ever Seen! It all begins with the Church”

IMAGINE…
A NATION ON ITS KNEES IN THE GREATEST AWAKENING EVER SEEN!
As I wept before God, He began to take me back again to the message of our book…“God’s Answer For America”
He reminded me of many things He had spoken to us. He told us “I don’t want to move in just one or two places and have a revival,  I want to move and break out in every city and every community, in every heart, home and family across the nation, bringing salvation, healing, new life, hope, deliverance and restoration.”

He showed us that He was calling Pastors to their knees, that they would help lead the way locally in this Great Awakening, (What Pastors and Churches across America must do to see this Awakening.) 

He told us “I don’t want to move in just one or two places and have a revival,  I want to move and break out in every city and every community, in every heart, home and family……

THE LOCAL CHURCH & PULPITS OF AMERICA IS WHERE IT MUST BEGIN
We have been saying this for years, but for many Pastors its just been church as usual. Now, we believe God is waking them up and He has their attention.  Many now realize we are in a day and time where Church as usual will no longer suffice.

We have had amazing and strong prayer movements in America that have called God’s people to repentance and prayer,  

But, now its time to take it to a whole new level, into every local Church so that every community will be impacted and transformed by the power of the Spirit. The local Church must be ready and prepare for discipleship. Church online is not God’s ultimate plan or design. 

TAKING IT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!
Just imagine, what might happen if Churches all across America, in every neighborhood, and every community bowed their hearts and knees and began pouring out their prayers like rain daily for souls, the prodigals, the backslidden, the bound, for families, their local leaders and businesses in their communities and city. What if we all took this seriously and humbled ourselves and prayed. (What Pastors and Churches across America must do to see this Awakening.) 

THE HEAVENS WILL BREAK OPEN 
As Pastors and Churches begin to do this the heavens will break open and begin to shift and change atmospheres as God hears the cries of His people rising up throughout our land in every community and city.  The local Church and the Pulpits of America is where it must begin.

Through the prayers of the local churches God will move through the city streets and prepare the hearts of man to receive the glorious Gospel of Christ. And, instead of the hardened hearts, the souls will be ready for harvest because the rain of intercession has fallen upon the soil and souls of man.

THE CHURCH EMPOWERED
The praying church will be empowered by the Spirit to take the Gospel into their neighborhoods, into the streets, and hearts will be ripe and ready to receive because the Church has labored on her knees.
A praying Church will be like a fountain and river of  life flowing into their communities and souls will be drawn!

“If My people will pour out their prayers like rain, I will come and I will pour out My Spirit like rain upon your land”  Cindy

 This is the Awakening we have been praying and crying out to God for since 2007 when He first warned us of what was to come if America didn’t turn. (See America, America Prophecy ). He also  spoke to us regarding  the Great Visitation. and let us know exactly what the enemy of the Church was up to and what God’s people must do to change the Course of a Nation.

CALLING PASTORS AND CHURCHES TO THEIR KNEES!
We believe what we have shared with you today is what God is clearly saying must take place. So now we ask you to please pray that God would lead us and guide us in getting this message out to the Church and to Pastors everywhere, in every city and community. We are believing God for significant platforms to reach the Pastors and Churches. 

WE CAN’T SETTLE FOR LESS…
Two phrases the Lord continues to stir in my heart and I have shared often are “Don’t Settle for Less, Press! Press! Press! and “Don’t Let Go Until God Says So!” I believe these phrases are a right now word for the Church when it comes to Awakening, Salvation, Souls and Saving our nation! 

GOD IS SETTING US UP FOR A GREAT VICTORY… 
God is setting us up for Victory, but if we do not do our part we will not see it complete. There are certain things He’s asking us to do and as the Church and we must follow through. We must hear His voice and follow His lead, then He will move and change everything! And, if it is within His Plan for President Trump to lead our nation again, our prayers and obedience will make the way. And God will do a work in him before He would bring him back in. 

AMERICA MUST BE SAVED! 
We recently heard of a new Campaign by President Trump called “the Save America Campaign” It seems like a prophetic call. Yes, this is what must happen, America must be Saved! America desperately needs to be saved from her enemies both foreign and domestic, and the dark spiritual forces attempting to destroy, but most importantly she needs true salvation that only Christ and His Word can bring. Thus, we must cooperate with the Spirit of God to see His desired outcome.

WE MUST STAY ENGAGED ON EVERY FRONT!
What we have just shared with you we believe is critical in seeing God move in a powerful way and change the course of our nation!

At the same time we do not want to minimize the importance of staying engaged and vigilant on every front, locally, state wide and nationally in our laws and legislation.

We cannot be silent and its critical that we speak the truth in love at all levels. For, its the truth that will open the eyes of the blind and set them free. It’s the prayers of God’s people that will prepare their hearts to receive. So, we must do both, diligently, intentionally, faithfully. 

-ENGAGE in the PRAYER CLOSET
-ENGAGE in the PUBLIC SQUARE
-ENGAGE EVERYWHERE! 

1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

We Close with this Prayer….

  “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done, on Earth as it is in Heaven!
