We lift these words of hope to you today. My hope is built on nothing less. Than Jesus' blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame. But wholly lean on Jesus' name. On Christ, the solid rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand. Selah.
O Trustworthy God. The one who sits in truth and holiness on the eternal throne. While we are in the midst of confusion and chaos on the earth. O Abba. I feel like we are in the land of Ephesus with Paul sitting beside us at the fireside. We lean in to hear your words of instruction over us.
Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. Their minds are full of darkness. They wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity.
O Abba. We shake our heads in somber wonder at the confusion and darkness that staggers in our streets. Confused souls bowing to satan and rioting against humanity and the right to just live in peace. Confused Americans bowing to the cause of socialism and total government takeover of our freedoms. Confused churches and pastors bowing and trying to fit in with this culture and not rock the proverbial government boat.
Nevertheless! With the authority of the Lord! The one who shines the light to dispel the darkness. We declare the light to shine! We declare the church to rise up like the city on the hill. Shine church shine! We were made for such a time as this. We are called and we are chosen. We are the church!
We do not need to shine online. We do not need to zoom in and out. We are sick of zoom. We are not manufactured machines. We are human. We need touch. We need fellowship. We need laughter. We need songs. We need praise. We need each other! In Jesus name. We rebuke the words “alone together”. How ridiculous! What kind of nonsensical talk is that. We rebuke it. We cast it down. We turn a deaf ear. We were made to be together!
O Lord. Help us to remember the ark of the covenant that went before the Israelites in battle. It was full of the law of the Lord! And just as Joshua had commanded the people, the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns before the Lord went forward, blowing the trumpets, with the ark of the covenant of the Lord following them.
O Hallelujah! We declare the Law of the Lord to override the Spirit of Lawlessness laying siege on this Nation. We rebuke it with the authority of the Lord. He has given us the power! We declare the Law of the Lord over every coup setup to undermine America. We rebuke every attempt to undermine and overthrow President Trump.
With the authority of the Lord. We declare the Law of the Lord over the satanic uprising in this nation. We rebuke every curse, incantation and ritual performed over America, it’s people and it’s leaders. We rebuke this demonic onslaught. Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world. God is greater than the demons running rampant in the land. God is greater than the demonic strongholds setup in the heavens over America. God is greater!
We declare the Law of the Lord over the 2020 elections. We rebuke every unlawful attempt to sabotage the elections. We cast them down! They use covid as their pathetic excuse. They use covid as an excuse for everything. We are sick of it! We rebuke every boldfaced lie we are being told about covid. We rebuke every exaggeration. We rebuke every falsehood. We rebuke this lying fearful spirit that surrounds covid. We pick up our razor sharp battle ax. We cut covid down and we pluck up the root.
We will not allow the enemy to toss us about! We are standing rock solid. We will not bend. We will not bow. We will stand and see the salvation of the Lord over America. We will watch the Lord wash away the enemy with their own deceptive waves of chaos. We will not be moved!
In Jesus name. Amen.
