October 2019 - Winning The Battle For Our Nation

Desk October2019b

Proverbs 14:34 “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”

When a people and their leaders follow the principles in God’s Word, God will exalt them. To exalt means to: Promote, Prosper and Protect that nation. Sin is a violation of God’s principles and commandments. It is going against the will of God and it will bring “reproach to any people.” Reproach means to: disgrace, degradation and bringing to nothing! This is a warning for us who live in this nation.

 “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” - (Isaiah 59:19)
The enemy is attacking our nation right now with a flood of wickedness:

  • The flood of pornographic material - the seed bed for sexual sin and abuse of all kinds

  • The flood of homosexuality, fornication, adultery, gender confusion and fluidity

  • The unrestricted practice of abortion

  • The problem of divorce as a normal practice and the prevalence of common law relationships

  • The epidemic abuse of drugs and alcohol

  • The onslaught of violence and corruption

Ezekiel 22:23-31 illustrates how sin will bring any land to ruin. Four groups of people are mentioned:

  1. The Prophets - those that stand behind the pulpits of the nation

  2. The Priests – believers, the church, God’s people

  3. The Princes – the politicians, bureaucrats, the uber-rich

  4. The People – those whose fate often lies in the hands of the first three groups

If we choose to sin, we also choose to suffer. If we choose to break God’s laws, we also choose the consequences. Verse 30 shows us God’s solution: An Intercessor.

Abraham and Moses stood in the gap for Israel. Daniel also stood in the gap for Israel and while he prayed there was a battle going on in the spirit realm. We are all called to be Gap-Fillers, not Gap-Finders! Do you love this country? Do you believe it’s worth fighting for, worth saving? Then what are you going to do to help preserve this great country?

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray.” - (2 Chronicles 7:14)
God puts the responsibility of the healing of the nation squarely upon the shoulders of the church!

  1. Humble themselves and pray and seek God’s face – It’s time to get serious about seeking and serving God. Call upon God today! (Hosea 10:12)

  2. Turn from their wicked ways. Repentance - turn from kingdom of self to kingdom of God; turn from self promotion to God promotion; turn from self suffiency to self examination.

  3. Seek God for a spiritual awakening. A revived Church. (1Corinthians 15:33) “Awake unto righteousness and do not sin.” God’s people and God’s work must be revived. (Isaiah 57:15)

  4. Stand in the gap through the power of intercessory prayer. Pray for righteous political leadership. (1 Timothy 2:1-2) “First of all pray for those in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and reverence.”

  5. Get involved in the political process; with moral concerns, and advocacy groups. Make your vote count! Raise up the standard and hold it high! Politics is a very credible place to serve God. (Romans 13:1-5)

Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord”

Yours for an International, World Wide Revival!
