SHUT UP and FIGHT
Nehemiah’s Warfare Strategy and an urgent call to God’s people
June 25, 2015
The atmosphere was charged, highly charged. The emotions, actions and lifestyles of the anguished exiles seethed like a raging cauldron. Marriages were in tatters, leadership was corrupt and everyone pretty much did whatever they wanted to do, as in the period of the Judges of Israel. Wives were being divorced for any reason and no respect for the lives of babies and tiny children. God’s people had lived so long in shame, rebellion and ignorance of God’s covenant, only a remnant remembered the great glories of God and His majestic miracles sweetness and blessings of their forefathers.; I delight to share with the body of Christ the glorious legacy and leadership of Nehemaih.
1. Devoted to God in a covenant relationship
2. Empathetic and intuitive regarding what was going on around him
3. Aware and deeply concerned about the condition of his people, the Jews
4. Idealistic: remembering the great former glory of Israel
5 Was a servant-leader whose concern and love for his people far outweighed his position as cup bearer to King Artaxeres
Nehemiah has always been one of my heroes because his mind-set revolved around his relationship with the Lord. He was a gracious and humble man, bringing his anguished concerns first to God after worshiping and reminding God of the former glory of God’s people. I love Nehemiah’s idealism. The squalor, despair and restlessness of the people could not dissuade him from remembering the beauty of Yahweh’s holiness, God’s blessings of prosperity and honor and the royal history of God’s kings.
Modern prophets tell us that it is too late for America, but I know there is still hope for the body of Christ. The times we are in are similar to God’s people living in the era of Ezra and Nehemiah. Yashuah, Jesus must and will judge His church first because she is to be His bride without spot or wrinkle. Sin and every form of iniquity slithers in the undercurrent like that serpent who tempted Adam and Eve in the garden. If we are not deliberate and sincere about daily repentance, we will indeed become like a clogged filter. Holy Spirit cannot flow freely!.
The greatest problem is the leadership. I’ve shared in detail the necessity of godly, spirit-filled and Spirit-led men and women who aspire to emulate the great heroes of the Bible. If a man is not nourishing his own household first, he can’t be fit to rule any territory. Order is not legalistic, but required to for God’s plans and destiny to be successful.
How did America get to this terrible level of depravity and utter shame when she had such a glorious start? It all started with the two death knells to our nation, Roe VS Wade ion January 22, 1973 and when prayer was banned from schools on June 25, 1962.
. During times of great prayer intercession with weeping and deep sorrow, I’ve asked Father God, “where did all this mess begin? Where were the backbone of God’s people? (who should have had the courage to oppose the murder of innocent unborn)” . This present generation must now aggressively cry out in weeping, fasting and repentance for our parents and grandparents who did nothing! We are the generation who holds the keys to the fate of America.
One reason Christian America has lost her way is also the incorrect handling the God’s word. So you say that you know your Bible? What did Yashuah Jesus say about His Fathers word?. There have been dangerous discrepancies in the translation of God’s word beginning as far as the earliest manuscripts. How needful to have an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew text and deep study and meditation by the counsel of Holy Spirit. If we think we can discern , understand and apply God’s word just by reading any translation, we are sorely mistaken and deluded. We’ll also open ourselves to great deception by satan who is eager and ready to manipulate our desires by our own or a false prophet’s translation-revelation
It may be to late for our government, but we have but a few seconds, (in His holy time clock) to make a very last minute difference in the midst of the body of Christ, by evangelizing and mentoring. new converts.
Shocking reports of young people leaving their homes and security, (as well as youth from many other nations) to enlist and fight with Isis should cause great concern for Christian parents, teachers and leaders and to question the validity of their “passed down faith and The Gospel’s authority. No other faith or religion can compare to Christ’s atonement on the cross for all humanity. His victorious resurrection transcends every other religious leader, (of who all are nothing but dry bones)! No one can compare to the glorious Christ…Yashuah Hamashia
I find it astonishing that in ISIS ever-widening swath spreading out like a cancer across the middle east and Africa, our young are mesmerized, drawn to and ready to die for this cause! Reminds me of the Pied Piper, weaving a spell over all who come within ear shot. Could it be that the grizzly, butchering video games no longer satiate their lust for blood, torment and death? Truly it seems as if those beastly demon angels tethered to the four corners of the Euphrates River were released, unleashing a venomous drug into the very veins of their spirit.
It’s staggering for me to imagine this new young breed of death warriors who prefer and glorify the masters of beading small children, burning alive prisoners and burning everything in sight!. It’s not enough to take slaves captive but to instill terror and fear. Quite a far cry from kids aspiring to minister compassion, relief healing as benevolent missionaries and medical volunteers. Where have our nation and leaders gone wrong and how can we fix this nightmare?
Shut Up and Fight
Shut up and fight. There is no other recourse but to go back to the basics. We must go back to where our godly leaders, Nehemiah, Ezra, Moses, Joshuah, King Jejoshaphat and later in America, President George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and our founding fathers. We must get back to reading of the law. The leaders must get on their faces, fasting and weeping before God in repentance..
Nehemiah was staunch enough to declare, “Set a watch against them”
Nememaih didn’t shirk or get angry. Hr surveyed the crisis of Jerusalem’s broken walls and the destitution of his people, the Jews and gave his petition to Jehovah God..Nehemiah’s prayer was heard and he had favor of the King to go about and complete the mission God had called him to do. At every turn of danger or threat, Nehemiah was at his game, praying, directing and delegating duties to the people as they were rebuilding the breaches in the wall. When satan used his pawns Tobiah and Sanballat and the Arab to distract the rebuilding efforts and to stop the work, and even sought to assassinate Nehemiah in a private place), Nehemiah stood firm in his calling in the center of God’s perfect will. The people respected him and listened to everything he said.
Nehemiah did not read the newspaper or listen to Hannity’s or Bill O’Brian reports and say, Oh my, this is awful. They are beheading little children and other atrocities.” He got right down to the nitty gritty and ordered the people to gird their weapons and defend their communities, homes and families!
It looks like most leaders and even good pastors are saying, “ They’re coming to America. We need to be ready. Be Ready..FOR GOD”S SAKE….for what?
When my father was stationed in German with my mother, younger sister and I, he planned to bring his family to America where opportunities were so we could have a better life than he did as a poor child living in rural Puerto Rico in the early 1940. Were he alive and healthy today and seeing all the atrocities committed by ISIS, Boko Haram, the brotherhood and the Hamass, he would get angry and involved. God’s people should not be passive to just accept all this evil and do nothing about it!
On Hal Lyndsay’s latest program tonight, he shared scriptures about Jesus telling his men to go and buy a sword. Do we think God is pleased when we proclaim piously that persecution is coming without having a strong game plan to oppose a horrifically unfair and brutal enemy. Do we think that it’s okay that the elderly, holocaust victims, disabled and little children deserve to fall prey to this demonic plague!!! And not even mentioning putting our families at unnecessary risk? Some of us have counted the cost and are ready to die joyously for Christ. But I beg to say that taking a passive stance and just laying down and letting Isis mow us like dandelion weeds is foolish and EVIL!.
God is ushering Christian America into “Awake and on Call”prayer, fasting and intercession. The battle is not ours but the Lords’ and He is calling His people to occupy before Yashuah Jesus comes. We’d better be getting our wedding gown ready and pure and have the sense to resist our enemy!
Traumatized refuges interviewed by relief workers and Christian ministries report how Isis ambushes a village, town or city and residents flee in terror. Families and businesses have been left behind and some cities are left in rubble! . Imagine the trauma of members of established and thriving communities loosing everything but the clothes on their back! The number of refugees are now in the many thousands.I don’t think we here in a America can imagine the utter chaos and misery of having no control, no advocate ( the United Nations is useless and worthless). I’ve wept too many tears during my prayer times with Lord and He impressed upon my spirit that much of what is happening could have been averted by prayer and fasting .
After hearing so many horrific reports and weeping and sending my prayers to the throne room, many thoughts compass me about the horrific suffering of hapless citizens and our brothers and sister in Christ. We shouldn’t ignore the demonic threat or be casual about Genocide. This is outright outrage an evil enemy which must be faced squarely and aggressively and dismantled.
They’re Coming to America
Imagine this very possible scenario. You own and live on a ranch in Texas, or you live in a small town on or near the border of Mexico. Disturbing rumors swirl about decapitated bodies being found. Mayhem arises and everyone is terrified. Many families travel to family members in other states. Then shocking reports come about churches and synagogues being burned with the people in them. Panic arises, yet our leaders downplay the severity of the crisis! Persecution is coming to America, in fact, it has already claims the lives of hundreds here. Nothing will be done, unless the church seeks God ‘s divine and superior strategy to oppose a barbaric and relentless enemy who will stop at nothing to destroy every last one of the Jews and Christians.
I’m no military strategist, have no political preference or agendas, I’m just n obscure woman of God, journalist and song-writer, sharing God’s truth through journaling (beginning as a sensitive teenager impassioned about social issues and humanitarian issues). It is time for my brothers and sisters in Christ to open your eyes and face the truth of the upcoming slaughter of the innocent. Now is the time for action. Now is the time to seriously and purposely address the enemies of the cross. And that is exactly what this battle is about. This demonic army is dead-set against the Gospel of Christ.
My vision is to see pastors, rabbi’s, priests,, sheriffs, and law enforcement coming together in one accord to seek Holy Spirit’s direction and guidance in the efforts of rallying devout and courageous prayer warriors and fasting teams. We can’t depend on our politicians to grab the bull by it’s horns. Neither can we trust our government because all but a small handful are God-minded and not money-minded. We can depend on Abba Jehovah’s holy, wise and victorious militia not bent on sloppy revenge and vigilante actions, but on seeking to win some of Isis who can be redeemed and overcoming the unrepentant!Tthat is how we can win this war.
I wonder how my friends and family would react if I were to post pictures of a particular little angel in a fluffy party dresses…cut in half! What would you do, turn away, ignore and forget about it or pray like you’ve never prayed before? As a compassionate journalist led by Christ’s love, maybe that’s what it will take for you to make your stand. Don’t think for ne minute that because we live in America, Land of the free that we won’t soon also be cut down, our children murdered before our eyes and then be beheaded ourselves! God help me. God help you. God help America
There’ hope. Let’s follow Nehemiah’s suit and show the kingdom of hell who has the real power!!
