WHY did my last post hit over 500,000 in 24 hours?
It started with predictions about the economy, then Blood Moons, then Harbinger, then ISIS, then Ebola, then Same Sex Marriage surge, then back to Ebola. Then my daughter Joy, normally buoyant made a comment curling up to go to bed….”my school is worried about Ebola and all this talk about the end times…why was I born now when all my dreams have no future?” Then she asked the question: “Why would any one want to live if that’s the case?”
Something in me snapped. I lifted my hands to the air and started praying…and something began to rise up and settle over me… Jesus was rising up from the back of the ship.
My daughter is remarkably prophetic in a sensing and seeing realm. She can pick up on stuff and does not always know what to do with it. I realized that I needed to remind her that she is the believer in the crowd. She is the solution to the storm. A verse came to mind…”do not fear what they fear!”
I posted to address viral fear …and the word God gave went viral. It is a true Word from God.
We must STOP BEING PASSIVE with the devil and with our own lives. I am praying and pressing in now like I did when I was a younger minister.
America has lost its fear of God. When you lose your fear of God ANOTHER FEAR comes to take its place! Remember that.
If however you have the FEAR OF THE LORD you don’t get fear of Ebola, Isis or another Great Depression. You get the COMFORT OF THE HOLY GHOST!” You who fear God can dismiss all other fears. (Acts 9:31…check it out)
AMERICA IS ENTERING AN UNUSUAL AWAKENING! It’s an awakening of Christians waking Jesus up from the back part of their ship. Which is to say, it’s an awakening of Christians crying out in a storm.
We have not been tested like this since the close of WWII and a brief period in the Cuban missile crisis and at 9-11.
THINK OF THE STORM AND THE DISCIPLES
“And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part (back part) of the ship, ASLEEP on a pillow: and they awoke him, and said unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And HE AROSE AND REBUKED the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.” (Mk 4:38)
Then after this, Jesus turned and challenged His trainees, (slightly paraphrased for emphasis) – “WHY are YOU of all people, SO FEARFUL? Where is YOUR FAITH?”
We are entering a period of STORMS…but who knows if this is not actually intended to catalyze our awakening? Only a really great storm could get an over-fed, LARGELY COMPLACENT, totally self-absorbed church to awaken. An awakening of what? The anointing residing where He dwells DEEP inside our spirit man! “Deep calleth unto deep!” It’s a deeper cry to a deeper place than we dwell.
The storm is life, the boat is your soul and Jesus is in the deeper part in your spirit (the “hinder part” of the ship, says King James)…
Jesus taught that to avoid the falling house in the storm of life you got to “dig deep” to find the rock. Dig past the emotional, mental, private life drama baby places where the soul is snared by cares of this life. Dig down until the spirit man rises up!
Once the spirit man rises up – keep your spirit in the ascended position and your mind and body under.
