The enemy rages like a flood! All over the earth! Afghanistan has been his next stop due to the inconceivable evil that dwells in the earth. O Holy Spirit! Raise up your holy standard against him. Drive your Spirit through the land with the breath of your presence.
Shield the innocent. Shield the families and children. Shield the Christians and Pastors. Shield those working from other countries and trying to escape. Shield the citizens of America, Germany, England and Korea attempting to escape. Shield the missionaries. Be a shield to the people. Be a sword to the evil. Be a comfort. Be the rain and the flood to wash away this demonic onslaught!
Hear our Cries! O YAHWEH!
“Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.” Isaiah 59:1 NKJV
Jesus! Come to these terrorists in visions. Show up in dreams. Show up in the skies. Shine your brilliant dazzling light of GLORY over Afghanistan and the Middle East as it reels under the takeover of this brutal enemy. Let the GLORY of the LORD arise over the Middle East. Let the Hosts of Heaven arrive on the scene in their chariots of fire! Come! O Mighty One like the raging flood and wash away the enemy.
O LORD! The words of the prophet Isaiah ring true. The courts oppose the righteous.
There is no justice in the earth. Truth stumbles in the streets. Honesty is outlawed. We see tyranny raising its ugly head throughout the earth and even in America. But You are not surprised. And You have the solution. And You are the answer!
“Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice. He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.
“He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head. He clothed himself with a robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.
“He will repay his enemies for their evil deeds. His fury will fall on his foes. He will pay them back even to the ends of the earth.
“In the west, people will respect the name of the LORD; in the east, they will glorify him. For he will come like a raging flood tide driven by the breath of the LORD.” Isaiah 59:15-19
We cling to your Word. We cling to your promises. O Yahweh! Our hearts would melt within us at the terror in the earth. Our hearts would melt within us at the hopelessness of mankind. Our hearts would melt within us at the dire straits even on the shores of America.
Except! Except when we turn our eyes upon Jesus! Except when we look in His face and we see His nail scarred hands. Except when we remember he has ALREADY defeated the enemy. And the enemy is as a wounded animal in the corner striking out. And we remind ourselves that the enemy is LIKE a lion - he is not THE Lion. Jesus is the Lion!
“But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory.” Revelation 5:5
“And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest.
“His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves.
“He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.
“When I saw him, I fell at his feet as if I were dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.” Revelation 1:13-18
