Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.
What precious words were said by the greatest of all men JESUS CHRIST!
When did He say it you ask?
When He hung on the cross between two thieves. He first forgave the thief that asked him to…and then he forgave all that were involved in crucifying Him.
Who crucified Him?
I nailed JESUS to the cross.
ALL mankind…both men and women…and their children…and children’s children. I mean we ALL nailed JESUS CHRIST to the cross.
HE bore ALL our sin and sicknesses and by HIS stripes we were healed and made whole…Spirit…Soul…and Body.
You may say I know this story…but that’s not the only thing I have to say…I mean pray…because praying is talking to my Father…not my earthly Father but my Heavenly Father because though I’m female…I’m the brethren referred to throughout the New Testament.
I’m standing in the gap for this nation. I’m asking forgiveness for our weak and sinful ways of voting. We are so busy that we are about to lose this nation to socialism.
Just ask anyone that has lived in a communist country or under a fascist regime.
How sad so many of us do not learn by our mistakes.
We’ve had two World Wars! Had we paid attention World War II would not have happened after World War I.
Then we had the Cold War which would have never happened had we paid attention to World War II.
You see we are as great of sinners in this day as the ones Noah had to handle with the FLOOD! We’ve had that wonderful promise from our Father with every rainbow.
We are as great of sinners as those who had to spend 40 years in the desert until all perished that had unbelief.
Let’s see how does this have anything to do with us? Well, do we BELIEVE?
I mean do we believe that fire is coming?
All my life I thought fire was going to be an atomic bomb of some kind but I’m not sure that’s the sign to look at.
Look at America. Look at Hawaii our 50th state.
I believe that is fire.
What about the west with all the fire?
Fire starts from dryness…it must rain to keep fire away.
Lightning causes fire as well as matches.
Now, I’m nearing 70…about 1 1/2 years away now…and I’ve never seen such a mess of destruction.
A great mass of destruction!! And who is causing that destruction?
The Creator of Heaven and earth. The Alpha and Omega. The Beginning and the End.
Don’t you love it? The Finisher of our Faith is about to Finish it All!
I just saw the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe of the Chronicles of Narnia series by C. S. Lewis. I watched some of my grandgirls…only one had read the book and whole series…but all had seen the movie many times.
So exciting for me to see them realizing how Aslan really represents JESUS our LORD so well! All the symbolism ….well I just was more amazed than ever over what was cleared up even for me! C. S. Lewis will be one of the heroes of the Faith I can’t wait to talk to!
When Aslan killed the white witch who called herself the Queen of Narnia…and HE tore off her head and said IT IS Finished! Well, I could hardly keep my seat! He so symbolized the King of Judah! So fitting to be the lion! 🙂
Matthew 24 tells us exactly what to look for before the entrance of our King..
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. Right now the newest one I’m hearing of is one that lives in Korea? I think. I just had a family member tell me they know someone who believes in this person.
6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. Iran? Korea? Russia? China? Cuba is still Communist, therefore a threat to us….being equipped by Communist nations.
See that you are not troubled. Why? Because if we believe in Him…in His Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not so He would have told us. He has gone to prepare a place for us because He wants us to be where He is.
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Many nations are battling and tribes within nations. Famines are caused by drought and people are starving…look at the 3rd world countries…the unreached nations in the 10/40 window. How have we not reached them? Billions of dollars are spent to help…but it is not food famine that is the cause. It is famine of the WORD of GOD.
We the Church are a nation just like America is a nation. We have spent much money to go to the nations and to send to the nations. If the people are reached with Bibles in their own language and they can read…and if the churches are planted and kept up from beginning until now…growing and multiplying because the nationals are working hard…having been trained…then like an oasis in the middle of the humongous desert…like in Mozambique where Heidi Baker is…they are flourishing.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
The Persecuted Church is seldom even spoken of in the Churches in America. Seed was planted by hard-working evangelists that went…but most of the planted churches have not been watered…weeded…cared for one on one. Many in those planted churches can’t read English…and even if they can…it is much easier to believe God is real in their own language.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD of GOD!
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
This is where we are in America. False prophets are everywhere!
You know how I know? Well we have both Democrats and Republicans in Church and both saying they are disciples of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Let’s see and we shall know each other by our what???
14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. Brethren are the family of God…members of the Church…the Bod of Christ throughout the world. Didn’t He say we can’t love HIM unless we love our brother and here it clearly says if we don’t love our we brother abide in death. He who does not love his brother abides in death. 1 John 3:14 (NKJV)
Forgive our Congress LORD! They’ve been elected to represent the people and the people elected a President… the people even crossed lines when they elected President Trump! He is the first one to even try to deal with our over-run nation of illegal immigrants.
I love the people LORD with your LOVE! But Your love LORD GOD Almighty is about to physically divide this nation in the earth…not the people…the land we stand on.
You are saying clearly by signs and wonders Lord…not words that ears hear…or that eyes see…There is a cataclysmic quake coming that is shaking the earth even now. Anyone knowing about the ring of fire knows that that ring is for real. Fire on all continents is about to happen.
I don’t know the day or hour…but I know the time…
Midnight is about to happen!
13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
We Women Who Pray prayer warriors rejoice that we are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and that we are involved with HIS Purpose to carry the WORD to the nations in their language.
Romans tells us that Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the WORD! How can they hear without a preacher…who preaches in the language of their understanding. Hallelujah to be workers in HIS Vineyard!
We occupy until He comes!
Amen and Amen
