Taking Authority

I just received this from a ministry friend in the St. Louis area, and it's too important not to share it.

Greetings dearly beloved of the Lord,

As I was in prayer about our nation, the Lord spoke a rather strong word to my heart to share with all of us:

Instead of complaining, moaning and groaning, and often actually empowering the enemy by repeating his words of negativity, judgment, and in effect cursing over your nation, stand in your authority and decree and declare what this nation shall be.

It is time for My Church to move out of her complacency, out of her fearful, cowering stance, and step into her authority.  If My people would being to decree and declare all that this nation has been called to be; if My people would being to use the power of the tongue coupled with their authority in Me, then this nation can and SHALL BE turned around. It  is time to call America BACK to her Godly roots and foundation. Decree and declare, she IS one nation under My hand.  She IS indivisible in Me.  She IS a city set on a hill, a beacon  shining the Light of the Gospel to all the world.

What the enemy tries to put in to place, take your authority and STOP it.  Let your words line up with Mine.  I am the One who founded and established this great land and My people need to take their place upon the wall and call your nation back.

What is America supposed to be?  Use your authority and call her to it.  Decree it and see it come forth.

I have not given up on America and My Church must not as well.  Pave the way for change by agreeing with Me and let your words be filled with life and blessing, not death and cursing.

Thank you and your friend for your kindness and commentary!
Needed now more than ever.


Rev. Paul said...

You're welcome, sir - and I agree.

Sound wisdom. Time to remind folks that God is over all.

Rev. Paul said...

Sarge, oftentimes, it's we ourselves who need to be reminded.

Old NFO said...

Well said, and we need to take that to heart...

We need to stop trying to slide around or adapt to evil. As my town moves to pass a "pro-tranny" ordinance I've resolved that there will be no men in my church bathroom and to speak to my prayer group about considering that we need to be prepared to both stand against it but to consider that we need to consider establishing a fund to pay fines.

Rev. Paul said...

You're right, PH. The church is spending too much of its time trying to figure out how not to offend, when it SHOULD be trying to please God with its obedience.

thank you.
thought God was going to let the usa go into the waste basket because of the tremendous sins.
if God will spare us the gratitude will be so great.
there will be loss of tax exempt status as we refuse the 'laws' of a thoroughly corrupt government.
parishioner mentioned to me a few months ago that same sex couples asking for marriage here would make trouble if turned down.
i said, we'll just pay the taxes but no such thing will happen in the One, Holy, Catholic, and
Apostolic Orthodox church.

Rev. Paul said...

deborah, I think you're on the right track. We must continue to refuse to cooperate with unGodly laws, no matter the weight of the penalty. He will be our Advocate, after all. :)

This country has lost its way. So many dislike Trump, and the other two idiots, but the only one who could UNITE our land is God.

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, Rob. That's why it's so important to speak His words over our country.
