The Lord gave me the following word to share.
My word from the Lord 5/5/16
You must be bold and unafraid in the hour of persecution. Wise as a serpent, gentle as a dove. A serpent slithers up without notice. It goes in places and sees without being seen. Its eyes are made to see in light and in darkness. It is aware of danger, and can bite if necessary.
A dove is gentle, as the Holy Spirit that lives in you is gentle. It watches as it flies and is aware of its surroundings. It lands gentle, and is beautiful to look upon. Hear from heaven this morning. I send you out, smart, aware, cunning, yet gentle, loving, and kind.
As water drips from a leaking faucet it erodes whatever it drips upon, so is this country eroding. Each drip of what appears to clean and refresh can destroy the strongest surface. The United States is the strong surface that has eroded throughout the years. Many battle to keep alive “The American Way,” but they have no obedience in them to Me. They want justice, yet they are unjust. They want freedom, yet they enslave. They want truth, yet they live a lie. Many nations and tribes have fallen throughout history, remember nothing is new under the sun.
A great nation has become a futile country in just a few short years. The drip began long ago. The erosion has taken place. The penetration has increased as the top layer has been removed. When this country, this people, allowed open wickedness to dwell at their highest leadership, and continued to love and support evil, they removed the protective surface and allowed erosion to begin. No one stepped up to stop the drip. No one changed the leadership that was causing the drip. The just let it continue and now this nation faces a great battle. A battle to become great again.
Can this be? Judgment will take place! Will obedience return to this land? In disaster can a nation turn back to God? The God that created it and has blessed it.
Donald Trump is a man of persuasion, but he also can be persuaded. Can the body of Christ persuade him to stand for righteousness again? Can My people who are called by My name turn from their wicked ways and stand for their Heavenly Father and Lord, Jesus Christ, once again to see a great nation arise from the ashes? Do I have warriors that would stand up and fight for righteousness once again? The questions go unanswered. I’m looking to and fro, will I find faith on My return?
I know all things, I see all things, I hear all things, but you do not My people. Will you fight as if you could change the destiny of this land? Fight for what is good and right and just. Do not back down and do not give in. Let My Spirit arise once again on this nation to call it My own. The battle is the Lord’s, but the soldiers are My people. Many or few, March on!
“Will you fight as if you could change the destiny of this land?” What a powerful question that is. For many of us we just want to give up. We are weary in the battle and the future looks grim. Many have not even joined the battle and many are unaware there is a battle. No matter where we are on this spectrum that is a very interesting question the Lord has asked.
I know this country must face judgment for what it has done and for what the people have allowed to be done. When disaster hits, and it will, I believe this is the time to rise and be ‘The Church’ once again. For many there leaves a bitter taste in their mouth when speaking of ‘Christians’ today. So many that call themselves Christians are either hypocrites or spineless, but there are those that have stood through it all, that remnant the Lord always has hidden away in safety, that rise up in disaster, and hardship, and speak truth. They not only stand for righteousness, but they live righteous!
A wake up call is coming and for many it is already here. Those that have not stood and have not lived in righteousness, but call themselves Christians are going to become very aware of their surroundings, and begin to discern truth from deceit. They will return to their God and call Jesus their Savior once again. Disaster changes things in a moment! Let’s be ready to be The Church! Many or few let our voices be heard!
Matthew10:16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” [NKJV]
Luke 18:7 “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” [NKJV]
