The future is being created right now. The Lord is on the move, and as He moves and we with Him, there’s a whole lot of shaking going on. It will turn out right-side-up.
For your health and well-being, I’ve been compelled to share this with you.
There are so many concerns that everyone is carrying—for yourself, your loved ones, our nation, and the world in general.
Concerns erupt into thoughts and words. It’s where those are directed that is the change-agent. Directing the concerned thoughts and words to the Lord creates pathways for His good plans to connect from Heaven to earth. For yourself, your loved ones, our nation, the world.
When the concerned thoughts and words erupt and join with others’ fear, anger, hostility, etc., that’s dangerous ground. It’s creating the future, too. Who wants fear, anger, hatred, rage, hostility, etc. in their future?
It’s not a joke when He said that LIFE and DEATH are in the tongue, Proverbs 18:21. Or, that by our words we would be acquitted or condemned, Matthew 12:37.
Everyone has the power to change this—and that’s the point of this post.
The Father’s ancient enemy accuses you and I (and our loved ones, nation, and world) day and night, Revelation 12:10. To put it bluntly, it’s easy for him to win the court case against us, too. That’s because all sin is by degrees. Those of us who go to bed holding anger are equal to the one who sits in prison for murder from stored anger let loose. It’s the same—by degrees. What we accuse, judge and condemn comes back to us, and in greater measure. And it will boomerang back–because all sin is by degrees, and everyone has sinned and fallen short of His glory.
When Father’s enemy accuses you and I, there’s evidence of our having broken “the law” through sin, because no one is able to keep the whole law.
Then, a “sentence” or “judgment” is pronounced against us—and that shows up in the form of sickness, our stuff that breaks down, troubles, financial drains, relational blow-ups, and yes, death too, etc. Tough stuff.
There is a better way. Thank God for Jesus. He paid for every point we failed, and offered mercy to triumph over judgment. He does give us the opportunity to start new every day—His mercies are new and His forgiveness is great. But, it is up to us to realize that we do fall short of His glory and, in humility and reverence, receive His mercy and forgiveness. If a holy hush were to fall. . . .like it did when the men realized, no one among them was without sin, and left the woman and their stones on the ground. . .that would leave space and grace for the Lord to work in all of us, our nation and the world. It would change so rapidly. This power is in each believer—and is increased by every believer who joins the holy hush.
If you’re already there, here’s good news. Even if you can’t see it yet, you’re greatly helping to raise the spiritual water-table and make room for the Lord! Momentum is building!
Next Tuesday-Wednesday (Oct. 8-9) is Yom Kippur. It’s the day that Father drops His gavel over the lives of each person (and family and nation) on the globe for the year.
I’m telling you from my heart that I have a holy fear—and want you to have a life-filled year.
It is wise to separate ourselves—remove ourselves from the middle of—the fray and the hostility. “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death,” Proverbs 16:25.
Here are steps of action for right now:
I drop all charges against everyone I’ve held them against—and myself
I receive the blood of Jesus which speaks to every accusation against me
I choose to agree with Your mercy for myself and everyone that I have agreed with an accusation against
Father, I have sinned, forgive me. Please cause Your mercy and grace in Jesus to speak on my behalf
Father, thank You for every opportunity to start new. Thank You for Your great love and faithfulness—and for covering every accusation against us through Jesus. Cause us to see ourselves and others in the light You would have us see us/them in. Cause us to remember to bring our concerns to You, releasing them to You, not to the airwaves around us, lending decibel level to Your ancient enemy who accuses. Cause true repentance and humility to be in our hearts—that we approach You for the costly forgiveness of Jesus—and that You cause the fear of the Lord, a holy hush, to fall. Father, forgive our sins and heal our land, in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
