Urgent Call to Prayer, Some Additional Things
A few days ago I posted a forwarded message saying that the first 7 days of the month of July 2014 should be days of prayer for America with a 7 hour fast on the 7th day. Since then the Lord laid the following scripture from Isaiah upon my heart.
At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
I hope that no one reading this post will for a moment think that I am hoping for the Lord’s judgement upon America nor am I wanting to see this country destroyed.
Several things about the Lord’s judgement that must be remembered. The first being that the Lord’s judgements are redemptive and not punitive in nature, i.e, His judgements come to correct not destroy as the scripture above states. Secondly, His judgments come so that His wrath does not have to, thus showing His mercy.
But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
During the time I have been posting on this blog site, I have had many dreams and visions of judgement coming to America. Again, I do not wish evil for America. I would much rather see repentance and that God’s judgements be averted. I believe that we should all continue to pray for America. There is little light left here and our prayers are desperately needed. If those of us who are called by His name and call ourselves Christians do not stand in the gap for America, who will? If we aren’t willing to humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and pray and seek the face of the Lord on behalf of ourselves, our family, and our nation, then who will? I believe that the Lord is looking for those who will stand in the gap, hence the call to prayer that I have been seeing from prophets of the Lord.
