Make sure you read this article till the end, IT IS GOD's WORD. Make sure to go straight to your bible thereafter - you will see why when you read.
Please make sure to always read the word of God and make sure to always come through every end of the week, to hear what God is saying to the church. Today, God has a message for you, the church.
He said, in John 10:27, that His sheep hear His voice, meaning that He talks, and is constantly counseling us about our past, telling us which green pastures to lay on today (Psalms 23:2), He also tells us about our future (John 16:4). We can ask God even about seemingly menial things, and He will tell us about even those things.
So what is God saying to the church? God has warned that His road is not easy, in fact, He wants us to not expect a bumpless road ahead - the church is under attack, now even more so. You sir, you madam, are the church. But because the church is Jesus' bride, and like any loving bridegroom, He will never leave nor forsake us and will protect us.
Unfortunately, not everyone who thinks that they are God's children is. Just because you know about God doesn't make you eligible to be one of His, in fact being one of Jesus' chosen is making that conscious decision to choose Him - and then confess with your mouth, that He is your Lord (Romans 10:9).
Therefore, the kingdom of God is not inherited - just because your parents are Christians doesn't make you any part of Jesus' own. Many don't know this, and sadly I need to tell you that many of you think that you are born again and yet you aren't, and many of you were only recently born again after going to church your whole life. God is asking you to accept Him.
Give your life to Him today. Now.
Secondly, God is saying that we need to stand in the gap for tomorrow's service. We need to cancel every demonic spirit and intent, and pray for a spiritually charged environment.
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them
You need to know that when we are in church, there is a special collective anointing, that only happens when two or more people are gathered in His name. So the devil doesn't like that. When you have stood in the gap for your service tomorrow, then all that walk into that church will never walk out the same way.
God will raise up a powerful army through your church.
Verse to read before tomorrow:
Ephesians 16:12 "12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Pray this prayer (taken from Ephesians 6:17 onwards):
"Thank you Father for Your counsel, and I thank You for hearing Your voice. Please put on me Your full and complete armor, and I thank you for it. Please put on me Your helmet of salvation Please equip me with the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word - teach me to apply it. Please put on me the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, and shoes that are the gospel of peace. Please father strengthen my shield of faith, so I can quench the fiery dots of the enemy. We pray all this in the name of our Lord Jesus, Amen."
If you haven't received Jesus as your Lord and savior, or have never made the conscious decision to choose Jesus and give your life to Him, say this prayer:
"Father, I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I have been on my own, I need you in my life. I believe that God sent His son Jesus to save me, and I personally take Jesus today as my Lord and savior. I believe with all my heart that Jesus lives and now lives in me. I accept the Holy Spirit, to dwell in me and to counsel me. I ask all this in the name of Jesus, Amen."
Do share this article with as many people as you can, and save a life. Spread the Word of God, it is a commandment by God. Do follow me for more interesting articles that are worth your time. Amen
