Let it rain, rain on us

Remove everything that is the way of Your awakening, everything that hinders us from the calling. We Need YOU, Jesus! Open the floodgates of heaven, Lord! Let it rain! Pour Your Spirit upon us!

Eddie James sings it right. We need His rain! God help us, heal our land, turn our hearts back to You. I pray that as you listen to this you will sing, too. I pray your song becomes a prayer. We need an awakening. 

O’ God, forgive us.

These people draw near Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts hold off and are far away from Me.  Matthew 15:8

Call us to repentance, Holy Spirit. Hear our cry!

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.      2 Chronicles 7:14

Let it be so.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams. Acts 2:17

Open the floodgates of heaven! 

Hold On & Keep Believing

It seems the whole world has gone mad, doesn’t it?

Scripture is unfolding right before our eyes.  Jesus said in Matthew 24, “Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. For many will come in (on the strength of) My name []appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place; All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error. And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, But he who endures to the end will be saved.”

Do NOT be afraid. If you are a believer in Christ, though these troubled days must come, we have a promise. So hold on, do not lose heart, keep the faith. He is our refuge, hide in Him.

Read the whole chapter of Matthew 24 for encouragement. He told us this would happen, He is still in control. He has you and He will not let go.

“I Believe”

Thinking bout the world looking at the nation
Suicide, genocide, homicide
Three words come to mind
Times are changing, yeah!
No more rumors they’re wars going on
Twisted doctors, scientist making clones
Economy got some backs against the wall
People dying for no reason at all
People of God don’t even read their Bibles
There’s no faith no trust in the word
But everybody seems to be quoting scripture
It’s just another word they heard
Pastors leaving pulpits cause they’re tired
It’s all based on how we feel
Overheard two people speaking the other day
One said that God’s not real but

[Chorus:]
I’m just one ah them ole people who’s got to hold on
Sometimes I can’t see but I still believe
He’s taking care of me, oh oh oh
I’m just one ah them ole people God’s got a hold on
And I believe, I believe, yeah!
I believe I believe, yeah!

So I choose to look on the brighter side
In spite, of all the negativity I’m surrounded by
No it ain’t perfect but that’s alright
Cause His hand is on me
It’s keeping me alive
So many disappointments
So much I don’t understand
So much I don’t have answers for
That’s what makes me trust You more
In a world that’s always changing
Everything’s rearranging
But no matter what’s going on
Ima be standing, Ima be holding on
Your truth, their truth, my truth
Your god, my God, our view
All I know is one thing nowadays
Is we all need hope we all need faith

[Chorus:]
I’m just one ah them ole people who’s got to hold on
Sometimes I can’t see but I still believe
He’s taking care of me, yes He is
I’m just one ah them ole people God’s got a hold on
Don’t You let go of me, Lord please
I believe, I believe

[Chorus:]
I’m just one ah them ole people who’s got to hold on
Sometimes I can’t see but I still believe
He’s taking care of me, yes He is oh oh oh
I’m just one ah them ole people God’s got a hold on
I believe I believe
I believe I believe

Now is the Time

You can not walk by faith if you are grumbling about the past and present.
You cannot experience freedom if you are afraid of tomorrow.
You cannot experience the presence of God if you are dining with the devil.
It is time to clean house. Time to get right. Time to get real.

1 John 2:18 says, Boys (lads), it is the last time (hour, the end of this age). And as you have heard that the antichrist [he who will oppose Christ in the guise of Christ] is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen, which confirms our belief that it is the final (the end) time.

If it was the last hour then, then we are in the last minute.

I repeat… It is time to clean house, get right, and get real. Because it is about to get very real and you want to be ready.

For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation! 2 Corinthians 6:2

Do not take your eyes off Christ. Do not slack thinking He is not going to come back. Do not be entangled any longer with this world, in relationships you should not be in, your secret addictions… because God will bring to light what is hidden in the dark.

He loves you! He bought your freedom through the cross. Remain faithful until He returns, because His return is coming very soon.

Be a Light in the Darkness

Know the Truth, speak the Truth, live the Truth…

Do not be afraid to speak the truth, because only the truth will bring healing and deliverance.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

There may be times you feel you are standing alone. You may even feel the tug to remain silent and not rock the boat.

Especially in these, the last days, we can remain silent no longer.

Remember, it just takes a little light to shine through the darkness. Be the candle. Let your light shine.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:11

You are not alone. He always has His remnant.

So too at the present time there is a remnant (a small believing minority), selected (chosen) by grace (by God’s unmerited favor and graciousness). Romans 11:5

Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17
