WAKE UP!! REPENT IS THE CALL FOR THIS HOUR, THIS DAY.

June 19, 2014

This is what prophets are calling for today.  Today is the day of our salvation.  King James Bible
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Last week I saw a man with a sign telling people to repent.  He was standing on a street corner with a big sign saying “Repent” and asking people to come back to God.  To turn from their ways.  Traffic was rushing by him. 

I don’t know what his situation was that he had been called to that street corner but people kept going by.  I was stopped by the traffic light.  For a moment, I thought we should stop the car and get out there with him.  I think those in the car with me may have had a coronary if I had stopped.  In my mind and spirit, I did stop and here is my street corner.  The voice that I can share.

What do we need to repent for.  Here’s a list.  Individually and corporately as a Church.

1.  Being a dead dried up Church.  God forgive us.

2.  Being silent while politicians took this country in a direction we should not have gone in.  God forgive us.

3.  Not standing up for right or wrong.  Not calling sin for what it is.  God forgive us.

4.  Being content to be closet Christians and not take a stand with our co-workers, friends and family.  God forgive us.

5.  Not taking responsibility for what is taking place in our country.  God forgive us.

6.  Being Luke Warm.  God forgive us.

7.  Being complacent.  God forgive us.

Evil in the Last Days  2 Timothy 3:4-6
4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses,…

Excuses, excuses, excuses. 

Revelation 3:14-22

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: These things saith the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of God;

I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot I will spue thee out of My mouth.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Wake up Church.  Wake up Christians.  All is not lost.  This is my street corner.  My blog. Where is your street corner? Wake up and Repent.  It starts with me.  It starts with you.

In Jesus Name.  Amen and Amen.

America – Repent and Turn to God

June 11, 2014
2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I love this verse.  It has come to mean so much to me over the years.  I can remember years ago praying this scripture at one of our evening prayer meetings.  I see it on FB as from time to time someone feels led to post it. 

My heart is broken as I realize what is happening in America.  The hedge of protection has been taken down because our people (Americans) have turned from God and brought incredible judgement our way.  I remember 9/11 and 7 years later the stock market plunge.  And still our leaders both in Washington, our political leaders in our state and our spiritual leaders have NOT turned and called for repentance for our sins across America.  Yes, there are some watchmen voicing and calling for repentance but only a few are heading their warning.

So, I shall add my voice to the fray.  IT IS TIME TO TURN AND REMEMBER GOD.  REMEMBER WHERE HE HAS BROUGHT US FROM.  REMEMBER HIS PROTECTION AND HOW MANY TIMES HE HAS DELIVERED AMERICA.

I pray it is not too late.  After 9/11 our churches were full for a few weeks but as time passed and no new tragedies, Americans returned to life as usual. 

The scripture I spoke of is probably the best known and most loved verse in Chronicles.  God gave Israel a plan to turn around and acknowledge Him.  If a nation is to experience His blessing, then it is a simple blueprint.

If we are to be granted a heaven-sent revival then we must do as He says.  This scripture talks to His people.  His chosen ones.  Those proclaiming themselves to be Christians.  
 

 Those who have been chosen to be his people must cease from their sins, turn from living lives of being  proud and self-centered, pray to the Lord, and yield their desires to his Word and His will. Then, and only then, will he grant heaven-sent revival.

It starts in the Church.  What is the recipe:

1.  Who are “my people”.  We the Church are His people.  We the covenant people are called. We are His People. We are called by His Name.

2.  If MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME-  Whose name?  God’s name.  “I am”, Adonai, and on and on.  We are called by His Name.

3.  Humble Ourselves:  We live in a world full of pride and it’s about “me” generations.  Turn to God, to His Word, to His Will.  Only then can we see ourselves reflected in God.

4.  Seek His Face:  Make it all about Him.  Go before Him and stay there until you hear from heaven.

5.  Turn from your wicked ways:  Repent-  Let God’s Word be at the forefront of your thoughts and your deeds.

6.  And PRAY:   I don’t think this is talking about your Now I lay me down to sleep prayers, but the kind of prayer where you get serious with God, meditate and allow God to speak to you.  I’ve known these types of prayer.  Heart, gut wrenching prayers that lead to change in your own life.

7.  Expect Revival:  then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I could go on and on but I will stop with this.  We are living in the end times.  I believe this with all my heart.  It’s time to get serious with God.  One on One and he will hear us and bring revival, first to your heart, to my heart, to the church and then to our nation.

Luke 1:37

King James Version (KJV)

37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Nothing is impossible with God.  NOTHING.  No matter where you are in your walk with God, you can count on His Word.
