Last night I was sitting in my living room, wide awake at 12:30am. Now, if you personally know me, you will find absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about this. I am a "night owl" as some would call it, and I am up very late most of the time. Last night, however, was very different. I felt a strong urge to write. There was an expectancy in the pit of my stomach and I couldn't sit still. I paced the living room floor back and forth and began to pray in the Spirit to try and see exactly what was going on and why I was beginning to feel this way. All of a sudden, the voice of the Lord shot straight through the atmosphere and pierced right through my heart,
"Write these words down. You must share them with my people tomorrow."
Wide-eyed, I froze.
You see, I really want you to understand something. There are many, many nights where I sit up at night and write. It's my passion and journaling is the avenue I use to bring forth God's heart to others. Last night, however, was different. He interrupted my night with an urgency and expectancy I have never experienced until now.
Church, God is doing something.
There's a shift that is taking place.
And here's the thing, this isn't something that is hidden from the hearts of His people.
He isn' going to catch anyone off guard...who is prepared, that is.
So here is my disclaimer: this Word the Lord spoke to my heart last night...it's not for the world. This Word is for God's people. I don't know where that finds you today, but I will say this; God is about to move whether we are ready and on board, or not.
Without further ado, prepare your heart to read this letter below, and I pray it stirs your spirit as it did mine.
A LETTER FROM GOD TO HIS PEOPLE - 3/17/15 - 12:34am
A targeted approach to life shall be made known to many. To whom do you serve and to what do you hold dear? Listen close but look ahead, there afar in the distance calls for a time in which things shall seem unheard of. Has it not been made known in the days of old? Have I not spoken a word and the word shall be fulfilled? The prophetic utterance has been laid to the wayside. Many consider my approach as now a rebuttal in the Spirit. I should say it as truth, the prophetic movement will grow in the days ahead and either you will nurture this movement or you will speak evil of it. There must be a choice.
Why must holy things be called evil and evil things be called good? Is it not enough that my Word no longer goes forth among my people? Has it not made the hearts of the proud filled with fraudulent joy to see the Word of the Lord lay as that of a famine? Shall there be a generation that will be brought forth without the Word of the Lord? Would you see to it that you sit idly by and watch with burning eyes and salty tears, a generation that knows not the name of the Lord?
Oh, how I wish my people would pray! Shall there be intercessors in the land if I lean over my throne to look upon the earth? Shall I find one praying righteous man? Shall I find one warring righteous woman? Whom can stand and declare that they know my heart? Tell me, who can declare that they understand my grieving? My grievance upon this nation is great. I tell you as truth, you look for fire and sulfur to fall from the sky as a rebuke and punishment. I should say that would not suffice to the evil I see run to and from the earth. This shall be a time of withdraw. Never have you witnessed the pulling back of my hand until now. Oh, how the earth will shake and tremble at the great sound of the Lord pulling back His outstretched hand! How terrible it shall be when the rocks and trees must cry out because my people no longer desire to utter my name!
But with this I bring good news. The Prophets shall arise because the prayers of my people are being heard. Intercessors have been calling forth prophets for ages and ages and this shall be the time of fulfillment. I AM rising up men and women in the day to speak of the great things that shall occur before the rest of the world stands as a witness. Yes, listen to my words! Listen to what I AM telling you, dear one! There is a remnant being lifted high to the throne and they are listening in on the conversations of heaven. Intercession is what will bring forth revival! My praying people shall see this in their time!
I laugh at those who say there is no use to pray! Who told you my plans were already placed upon the blueprint? I am awaiting the prayers! Oh, the prayers! I am awaiting for my people to wake up and arise! Come out of the dark places and into my glorious light! Come out of the encouragement movement and step into my repentance of glory and righteous living! Truly this shall be the great awakening, when my people decide that their itching ears have had enough!
Who will stand up to challenge the idols of this time? Who shall rise up and smash the idols of provocative lifestyles? Who shall mock the gods that claim they hold power upon this earth? Is there an Elijah among my people who will run to the Kishon Valley to destroy the 450 prophets of Baal? Is there one who knows me greater and will call upon the name of the Lord?
What about a David? Will I find the one who will stand up against the mockery of the uncircumcised philistine and show forth the mighty day of the Lord through deliverance?
I should say it as truth, I AM searching!
I AM seeking!
My eyes are scanning the earth and I am looking for hearts set ablaze in prayer. I am not looking into the churches; I am intently looking into the secret places. I am opening up the prayer closets!
Shall I find anyone on their knees and calling forth my lost ones? Shall I open the prayer closets and find those whom are holding the heart of Jerusalem?
Oh, has anyone remembered the apple of my eye? I should say it as truth, when you pray for Zion, you pray through my language. When you pray for Jerusalem you pray for my Kingdom!
Set your hearts at ease, set them right, my people! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all shall be well with you! Intercede for your coming resting place, for you are grafted into a lineage of ancient Kingdom beauty! The throne of David shall be established and I desire for you to be there to witness such a thing!
Take time and pray. Oh how I desire to see my people weep for what I weep for. Oh how I long to see my people hate sin as I hate sin. We are in a covenant relationship, one body, united, yet we believe in different things! How can I be unequally yoked to an unbeliever of the things that are dear to my heart?
Oh wake up, my people! Awake and see, for I shall not come like a thief in the night to those who are ready, willing, and obedient!
Keep your eyes to the sky and abide deep within the vine. Man shall not know the date and time but keep your hearts aligned with mine and all shall soon resound in my perfect time.
Situate Isaiah 37 within reach at all times and within all places.
Your Heavenly Father, The Almighty One
