I cant imagine the burdens that the Lord has. Sometimes my burdens are too much to bear. It seems like my heart breaks daily from what I see around the world. The spirit speaks to me continually to pray for the church, to pray for the lost, to pray to expose the darkness, to pray for the children. My most burdensome prayer I have is: LORD GOD HAVE MERCY ON THIS WICKED PEOPLE, LORD GOD HAVE MERCY ON US. I KNOW its too late to turn America back around. But that is only because of the state of the church and the state of our leaders. This is not what God wants but he already knew it would happen. He gave us signs to look out for. Which no one could dispute, is already here….
Its becoming increasingly dark out there. My heart is breaking, my heart is breaking. So many lost, so many hopeless, so many filled with hate, so many wicked schemes. My heart breaks because too many people are being quiet, too many people are turning their backs to the evil that is running rampant. They don’t care, they don’t cry out of the injustice, their hearts are truly hard, their eyes are truly blind. This is what God has warned us about. Evil will be called good in the last days, and that is in fact what is going on.
I cant imagine the burdens and broken heart the Lord has. He reaches out but very few grab ahold. He searches the hearts but finds very few that love him. He looks down and sees all the wicked.
Please church rise up! Rise up and intercede for the lost! Please church, fall to your knees in repentance! Rise up and let the lion of Judah roar!
1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace,expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. 11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (that done in the body by the hands of men) 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. 19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
I love Ephesians 2! It speaks about the wholeness of Gods structure or plan. One of my favorit parts is 2:22. In him (Christ Jesus the chief cornerstone) we are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. This is not talking about a building but each one of Gods people. Each together through Christ do we make up his church. God gives each Christian a gift (at least one, some have more). We are to use these gifts for Gods Glory to build up faith in the church and unbelievers. If Gods people are secluding themselves or not using Gods gift(s), then we are not doing Gods work. I encourage all to stop secluding yourselfs. All true Christians need eachother, and the world needs us.
Be in Gods love towards all,
