THE SEVEN PRAYER MOUNTAINS – LESSON 4
THE GOVERNMENT
 
The most significant impact upon all the people in any given country is the government that ultimately has the rule over them. There are countries where a dictator rules and he is the sole determiner of what shall be enforced. There are communist and socialist governments where the few have absolute rule of the many who have no voice in matters. There are still a few monarchies ruled by a king. There are Muslim Caliphates with strict and harsh rules.
 
We are fortunate to live in a republic where we do have a voice by electing leaders who line up with our values and desires. We can change our leaders through the vote. However, voter apathy can be a problem when people are satisfied with the “status quo.” They become uniformed and either choose not to vote or cast a vote for people of whom they know not what the candidate stands for.
 
America is deep into leftist and liberal agendas in all branches and departments of Governments. Many of the leaders are godless, and their agenda shows it. Even many of the religious politicians and administrators have a secular world view and not a biblical world view. Our government has endorsed and legalized homosexuality, gay marriage, killing babies in the womb or just newly born babies. Many states are slowly taking away our religious freedom and our right to free speech.
 
Nevertheless, scripture (I Timothy 2:1-3) tells us that we should pray for all leaders in authority. It does not matter whether or not we like them or whether we see them as good or bad. Proverbs 21:1 says (NKJV), “A king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, like the rivers of water. He turns it wherever He wishes.” As we pray for them, even a godless ruler can be influenced by God.
 
America is in political turmoil right now. We need to be praying hard that God’s hand will be in whatever turns out. Sadly, since men have a free will, if they earnestly promote or accept a godless or evil agenda, God may grant them what they choose even if it goes against godly principles. But as Proverbs 29:2 (NKJV) says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice.”
 
Here are the prayer points for the government mountain. Pray for:
 
1. Federal government: Executive, legislative and judicial branches, and administrative departments.
 
2. State government: Executive, Legislative, and judicial, and the appointed public commissions.
3. Local Government: city and country for executive, legislative, and judicial branches, as well as law enforcement and first responders.
 
4. Military: for the leaders, for divine protection for our troops and our country, and that they will have courage to place their dependence on God.
 
5. That Christians will run for office and be elected.
 
As I personally pray for our county and government, I pray that God’s will and His plan will be done, and not the plan of the evil one and those under his influence. If the wrong people take rule, this country is doomed to be forever changed and judged. They advocate cutting ties with Israel and dividing their already small nation. They advocate massive financial support for the Muslim nations surrounding Israel. Such an agenda is a death knell for America.  

Pray! Pray! Pray!

DID YOU HEAR THAT?
 
One of the things listed in Proverbs 6:16-19 that God hates and actually calls abominations is “a false witness that speaketh lies.” Now most of us would think of that as someone testifying in a jury trial that doesn’t tell the truth. Yet it means much more than that. The Amplified reads “A false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], and one who spreads discord (rumors) among brothers.” 
 
This passage could include gossip. I have seen lives destroyed because of gossip. Most think of women being gossips, but I can assure you men are just as bad if not worse. If God hates it, we should too!
 
Then there are the “half-truths” mentioned. There is no such thing as a half-truth. If it isn’t all truth, then it is a lie. Satan is very good at distorting scripture. When he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he used the scripture, but twisted it for his own advantage. We should not even consider a “half-truth.” God hates lies. A lying tongue is mentioned in verse 16 of Proverbs 6.
 
I think that people should put into practice what my mother taught me as a child. She said, and I quote her, “If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.” Now there are times that we must speak up about something to clear the air, but we should not be spreading gossip about another brother or sister. It should be said face to face. Spreading rumors by saying, “Did you hear that?” shows the immaturity in the body of Christ if we continue to do things that God hates.
 
Years ago, someone asked me a question about a person, wanting to know something that truly was none of their business. My response to their question was, “Can you keep a secret?” This person said, “Yes.” Then I said, “So can I” and I walked away. This may seem rude to you, but I squelched this person from spreading gossip. Maybe you should try it too.
 
I will close with this from Ephesians 4:29: “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”
 
Be blessed!

Prophetic Word
January 12, 2020
 
For now is the hour saith the Lord. Now is the hour to listen more than you have ever listened. For there are many voices speaking and many are leaning unto their own understanding. Yes, there is much confusion in the air, and only those that hear and listen to my voice will be led in the path that is a sure path. For there are many voices speaking this day that would be contrary one to the other. Have I not said to trust in me from your inner being and lean not unto the voice of the mind saith the Lord. For the mind is easily swayed by the voices that are speaking peace and safety, while the voice of the spirit would say come to me and find rest. For yes there is a wind blowing that will usher in many things saith the Lord. There is destruction and judgment in the wind, but I would say that it has to come to satisfy the payment for sin. My judgment will bring about a turning, yes, a turning back to me. There is an hour very soon that this will happen, for I would say don’t look with your natural eye, for there are forces that are beyond your comprehension at work even in this hour. I am adjusting the wind to bring exactly what is necessary to bring your nation to its knees. Yes, that is where it must come. That is where it will cry out to me and receive forgivenesss. Do not pray against this wind saith the Lord, for you would be fighting me. I am in this wind and it shall surely blow. Many things will topple through the blowing of this wind, for only those that are anchored in the solid rock can withstand this wind. It is blowing hard, and it will produce what I will it to produce. So my child hide yourself in the cleft of the rock, knowing that there is safety there. Hide yourself in me and know that peace is there. Hide yourself in the arms of the ancient of days. Embrace me for I will carry you through this time, but I would say do not fear, for this is all part of my plan. There will be great cities fall in one hour. The sin of those cities has come into my nostrils and has caused me to say, you think you can stand in this sin? I would say, I will bring you to your knees. I will have the final word, and justice shall be served. I would say there are mountains that will fall down and many lives will be destroyed, and you would say surely we are safe in the mountains, but they shall melt in one hour and the safety will be gone. There is only safety in me saith the Lord. Many would rise himself up and say nothing can touch me, but I will bring him down in one hour saith the Lord, for I have the last word. Yes, my children, the time of justice is at hand, so spend time with me to hear what I would say and know that of a certainty that in me you will find your safety. There will be great loss soon, but those that spend time with me will be spared saith the Lord.
