REJOICE! And again I say Rejoice!

Are you weary, my brother or sister? Has the enemy buffeted you so that you drag your feet?
This morning as I focused on resting and meditating on the Lord’s word, I recalled that few of my closest brothers & sisters in Christ have not called or visited. I stopped to visit a few, only to find no one home. I sent cards and packages…no response. Only recently, certain brethren and I spent time worshiping and in prayer. Where was everybody? I know many are struggling with illnesses and hospitalization of their family members, but I’m disappointed to be disconnected with my prayer partners.

I also know that spiritual attacks of God’s people are increasing.  Satan’s  host work full-time,  wreaking havoc across the globe. Many are struggling with physical ailments and depression.

As I tune in to the Pastor Janet’s Ellsworth’s  prayer meeting on CTN Christian network each night from 12:30 am to 3:30 am, I’m saddened to hear so many callers requesting prayer for  troubled family members, suicidal children and serious illnesses. As I pray, I wonder how she never seems flustered or overwhelmed at the great amount of suffering of people who call in.Pastor Janet  is  an amazing spirit-filled woman of God and a wonderful role model for me as I try to encourage my brothers and sisters to keep running the race and stay close to the Lord.

I remind you, beloved, that  now is not the time to be slack and allow the cares of the world, family members self-centered issues and worldly strife’s to deter you from your Christian duty. I’m here to compel you to attention. I’m here to stir up the gift that are within you.  Don’t be weary in well-doing, for you will reap if you DON’T faint. Gal 6:9

When you start to get lazy and spiritually weak, recount God’s word! Remember your royal heritage. You are Kings & Priests. Minister to Him in your priesthood regardless of how you feel. 1 Pet 2:8 and  Rev. 1:6 We are also His workmanship Eph 2:10. Everyone of us has a distinct calling in this dark hour. Running God’s race in these dark hours requires great diligence and persistence. If we want God to continue blessing & strengthening us, we must reserve reverent worship and meditation time with Him.

Rejoice for He inhabits the praises of His people. In everything, give thanks, 1 Thes 5:18.  Rejoice for we are seated with Jesus in heavenly places! Eph 2:6 and are partakers of His divine nature and we are given His great & precious promises.  2 Pet 1:4. We are the accepted in the beloved.

So I urge you this day, BELOVED to Focus on who you are in Christ and what belongs to you! Don’t give place to satan where he draws your attention to  personal struggles, family conflicts, job stressors and threatening world events. Paul reminded Timothy, “No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier” Our first obligation is to abide under the shadow of the almighty Psalm 91 and enter His rest..Heb 4:11

I pray for you to be refreshed by this blog.

Paul reiterated to the Philipians, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice!”

I encourage you all to enter His rest today and even during the busy week, if even for only 15 minutes or a half an hour. Stop, count, (writing down your blessings is even better) and Praise Him! Praise refreshes the soul.

Rejoice I say and Praise Him!

CITY on a HILL


America’s clock ticks 11:59. The sand in the hourglass is just about poured out and God waits with His rod of judgement.

Crying and bowing to worship and seek God’s mercy on America, I keep wondering how God’s people could have allowed this once glorious nation to sink to such depravity. How often did Israel and Judah fall into captivity and God send judges to guide her into repentance and restoration. Ezekiel blasted the evil shepherds for not protecting the sheep and for allowing the wolves and predators to devour those entrusted to him. Ezek 34, Zech 11:17 and Jer 23:1.

God is very displeased with the shepherds. No one else could be responsible for the apathetic and powerless state of the church except pastors, priests and rabbi’s of our nation! Now we are at the precipice of utter annihilation. I weep bitterly for what is to come, but something in me still kindles…an urgency to persistently petition our merciful God for more time to preach His restoring word and bring forth the harvest of lost souls,. He is still the God of the eleventh hour and with Him all things are possible.

I’ve been blessed to unite in powerful, intercessory prayer with several devoted ans spirit-filled women who share a passion for a restored America. Though we are just about at twelve, we still have that sacred minute to seek a sledgehammer of righteousness that would suddenly overtake the sleeping church!

Our enemy has already infiltrated almost every area of our government.Conquest, anarchy and violence is their means to overtake America, but Godly, spirit-filled women will rise up in God’s power. Our weapons will not be guns, ammunition and bloodshed, but our invincible ammunition will be the power and Love of God almighty!

Love conquers all and we must first come to the realization that God did not ordain violence and genocide as a means to conquer.

Several great leaders of God accomplished restoration and victory for their people. Nehemiah, Esther and King Jehoshaphat stood boldly to follow the vision God placed in their hearts
Right now, there are women of faith scattered abroad America and God is calling us together in prayer, weeping and fasting…that God would give us just one more opportunity to powerfully influence arenas of finance, the economy, science, medicine and faith! Daniel and his friends were given divine wisdom in all areas of life and I await God’s anointing of leaders who will greatly transform our culture in these last days. It is time to remember our brothers and sisters of Biblical times who arose in prominence for such a time as this! God has not changed. he is the same, yesterday and tomorrow. His plans are still, to prosper us, not to harm us. let us no longer allow our nemesis to mow us over without any resistance!! It is time for us to shift our gaze from the body count, the devastation, the famine and the lack…to Him who is able to supply our every need…even the need for divine wisdom, invention and cunning. .Oh, the glories our heavenly father has for us. It is time for His bride, the church, to take seriously the duty and obligation of powerful intercession.

Our parents and grandparents allowed themselves to be consumed by raising their families and bringing home a paycheck. They’ve neglected their civic responsibilities of voting and making their voices heard. They allowed prayer to be taken out of schools and public places and later allowed Roe against Wade to prevail as law of the land. Look what has happened to America because of the atheists hatred of God? Sadly, the church has not learned her lesson. Abominations are being instituted across our land without any resistance at all!! God help us.

God’s people must wake up. It is almost too late. We must stop ignoring the insidious conquests of satan to completely corrupt and defile America. She is ripe for judgement. I implore you people of God to do your research. To investigate what laws are being revamp. We must not fear being involved in the political process. Our military paid a great price with their lives for our freedom. We must honor them and realize that liberty was not free. Our liberty is about to be taken from us right before our eyes. It is time for God’s people to be a people of repentance and seeking His face with all our hearts…TODAY!

Let us be that CITY on a Hill that Jesus called us to be. Now is the time to realize your luminescence! Arise and shine, my people.
