Hey, friends and family,
I have noticed lately, that I am posting more on face book about the LORD and Israel and the Last Days. I have at times thought, I’m sure that I don’t hear back from some of my friends and family is because I say too much about such things. I am a people person, and it has mattered much to me…way too much very often in my life..what people think and sometimes say about me.
My love language…well one of mine…is words of affirmation. A compliment on food, or how I cleaned up, or how I spoke before a crowd, or even how I prayed could ticle my ears or turn my head. I’ve been vulnerable in that area, so I have a guard up. However, if I listen to my flesh that’s what I think when I don’t hear back..hey, you’re on the right track, or simply a “like” on fb.
Lately, I’ve had to be satisfied in the silence. The Lord gives me a warning inside…it may be even a shortness of breath…or a sickening inside…and, it stays with me until I share. I’m an intercessor, called of the LORD to pray, and not just for my husband, my sons and their wives and my grandchildren, nor only for sisters and their families, and cousins, etc., nor only my friends and theirs…but I stand where I am …sit also…and pray for my neighbors, church, community, city, county, state, nation, and all the nations…all in my past, present, and future.
I have been given a trumpet to blow and warn Zion…the Church and Israel. I’ve been rebuked a time or 2 for raising thoughts on my prayer page. I never mean to offend, but when the prophets of old were given things to prophesy…to say…it didn’t matter whether the people heard or not…Jeremiah was even told they wouldn’t hear…and yet, he still had to say what God said to say.
Words said are very powerful whether positive or negative. What we say…the power of our tongue…can kill or bring life. What God says will come to pass whether we want it to or not. It must be spoken aloud into the earth…that’s why I pray the prayer blanket every day.
I have continued to hear the words, provoke to good works, over and over in my spirit..as the Day draws near. Don’t forsake the assembling of believers! I’ve never gathered with so many different groups of believers as I do now. I may miss Sunday at my church, but I gather daily on the free conference line (and have for 8 years), for about 1 1/2 hours. I gather every other Tuesday night with believers in a Bible Study that has been on-going for more than 10 years. I gather ever Wednesday night, taking my granddaugters to AWANAS (a Bible-learning program) and me working in ESL, with people who know English as their 2nd language. I meet with a bff from highschool and her church friends in a Beth Moore Bible Study three Thursdays a month. I gather with people from all over the globe daily on our face book page (Womenwho Pray) every day and at night. Last, but not least, I gather with those of you who come to this website, and I welcome comments.
I believe it is important not to take scripture out of context so I have placed Hebrews 10: 16-24 in this article. Read it all and see that what I say to you is true.
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
The LORD has called us oxen — we intercessors — and He told me my oxen were in a ditch — to deliver. The next scripture really speaks to this call:
Brothers and sisters, if a person gets trapped by wrongdoing, those of you who are spiritual should help that person turn away from doing wrong. Do it in a gentle way. At the same time watch yourself so that you also are not tempted. (Galatians 6: 1 God’s Word Translation)
My job is to see you in one in the ditch, and to throw the lifeline. I’m to pull out the oxen that is trapped, but I am not to get in with that one. My prayer warriors stand arm and arm with me as we pull out, but the one being delivered from the ditch must walk out…not be dragged. We take no chance of falling in. The Lord makes it very clear.
If you need prayer, or you want to join this team of oxen — praying daily on the wall — let me know by your comment below. God bless the reading of God’s Word! Praise the LORD who has redeemed us by the Blood of the Lamb! We overcome by that Blood and the Word of our Testimony!! His WORD!!!
In Jesus’ Name,
