A word for 2020
Before I begin, I find it beautiful that the Lord has spoken these truths, as the Day of Atonement is at hand. As people all over the globe humble themselves before the Lord for Yom Kippur to repent and seek repentance for themselves. Let us not forget that it was for the nation that the priest would enter the holy of Holies. We have found our atonement in Christ and are sealed forever with the Holy Spirit. But are we as followers of Christ doing what we are called or have we been silent?
I have been in reflection over this past year. So much has happened, so many wonderful joyous moments, along with fear and joy.
Twenty Nineteen was a huge year for my family and I, a year that will define each of us in different ways, but define us nonetheless. Any moment can be defining let alone a whole year, it doesn’t have to be a moment of pain or even this huge moment of joy. It can simply be.. a moment.
Coming out of Twenty Nineteen into Twenty Twenty, I know the Lord did a work in so many of us. A work that would come to harvest this year. Truthfully what we go through, each and every experience shapes us. So in this way, every moment has the opportunity to completely shift the trajectory of our lives.
As we have seen thus far Twenty Twenty looks as though it’s been a year of demonic victory. At every turn it seems that that demonic forces are running rampant, and having their way. However, the Lord has said
“The Earth is mine, as the enemy celebrates know that I have been moving. I have been bring up a people that will listen to my voice and my voice alone. I have not abandoned the United States. But my people within this nation must arise. They must start protecting the vulnerable. They must start protecting the children. The people who are called by my voice must humble themselves. They must turn from their wicked ways of silence. Do more than put aside your idols. Destroy them. Put away fear. Fear will destroy all I want to accomplish. Fear will be the beginning of pain for this nation. So arise with courage a heed my voice.”
Sons and Daughters, in this season we must put away fear. Fear should have no place among the people of the Lord. We cannot and should not operate out of fear- fear will always mean a victory for the enemy. We must humble ourselves and seek the voice of the Lord and the Lord only. During this time we should be lead by the Holy Spirit, We should not be fooled or blinded in this time. The Lord has called each of us to be the light in the world. Right now the world remains in darkness. We need the body of Christ to arise and be what it is supposed to be. I encourage each of us to be calling on the name of the Lord and be praying for our nation. Praying for the children that we have not protected because of our silence. If we as the people of the Lord want to honor the Father we must protect the children.
Father I pray for courage for the body- for the church. Not the building but the people who house the spirit who raised Christ from the dead. That this spirit would transform each and everyone of us to become brave and courageous individuals. As we turn our heart towards you, we will walk without fear. Moving and operating at the instruction of Your voice only. I ask that we not be swayed or deceived. But empower each of us to stand firm and respond to the call that is being proclaimed. We rebuke the spirit of fear as it has no place among the people of the Lord. We do more than cast away our idols we burn them and allow them to rule us no more! Father transform us into the salt and light and put us on a hill so that we can glorify your holy name. In Jesus name!
Remember that the Father rules. He is enthroned. His kingdom shall go from glory to glory. It is paramount that we guard ourselves from fear. Today we must go into intercession for this nation and our own families! The enemy wants both destroyed. We must be diligent and keep watch.
The Earth belongs to the Lord
The trumpets are calling , they are being blown louder and louder- calling each and every son and daughter- it is time to arise. The Earth belongs to the Lord, all that is within it is His.
Now is the time sons and daughter- adorn yourselves in the armor of the Spirit. For your body is a temple and you have been made new. Put away your idols the trumpet calls- terry no longer- arise. Arise shouts the messengers of the Lord, the time has come, be silent no longer, arise and speak truth. The earth is yearning. The earth is the Lords. Let it be known who you serve, let it be known what is required to enter the kingdom, the gates are open and the world cries out for it has no understanding.
Arise sons and daughter. Do not light your lamp and put it under a basket. Let your light shine before man. Put away fear, the Lord is calling us into the water, He is asking “will you trust Me to Come? Will You answer my call?”
I see a harvest the Lord has been preparing. I see His people coming together uniting from all areas of the World. Singing the praises of the Father. Unafraid for they know the He is with them. They are calling for change. They are calling for justice. They are calling for truth. They are all gathered together under the Lord. They sing His praises continuously. The world around them burns but within His wings they are kept safe. They are storming the territories of the enemy, they are breaking areas that have been used as footholds and turned into a stronghold for the devil. These places will be brought before the Father and they will turn from the corruption and will shout, “Look the Lord is faithful! He is truth!”
The veil will be removed and they will walk in light.
The enemy is preparing for victory, but the Father says they shall not win. Be strong Sons and Daughters the Lord is fighting this battle, we must stand in faith. We must be praying. We must be proclaiming the victory of the Lord. As we must rebuke evil remain in good courage this battle has been won. As the enemy celebrates, the Father has been moving and raising a generation. He has been calling up his sons and daughters, molding them and teaching them to respond to His voice alone. They are powerful passionate people who want only to exalt the name of the Lord.
Twenty Twenty is the road to courageous.
