THE SEVEN PRAYER MOUNTAINS – LESSON 7
RELIGION – PART 1
 
Religious freedom is under attack in this country. Christians whose convictions are based on the bible are the real target. Our “conscience rights” have often been taken away by activist federal judges. Left-wing groups boycott and have even vandalized Christian-owned businesses that exercised their rights to convictions contrary to liberal agendas and that have stood up against local ordinances that violate their religious convictions. On a side note, the so-called “separation of church and state” is a grossly misunderstood “theme”, which we will examine tomorrow. It is too deep for day’s purpose in writing.
 
There is a fight for truth. It is a fight of good versus evil. Jesus is The Truth, and He is revealed through the Word of Truth, the Holy Bible. Satan is evil and he subverts truth, twists it, and supplants it with deception and lies. He has succeeded in making the largest part of the established churches complacent and indifferent to the purposes of God. Only a small portion of the “whole body” of the church actually preaches, teaches, and practices biblical truth. The “church” as a whole has become weak, even impotent.
 
Most of society now believes that there are many ways to reach the afterlife paradise (heaven). They feel that any religion you may choose is a path to get you there. Some believe there is no heaven or hell, only the physical life and nothing more. Others believe there is a heaven but no hell; everyone goes to heaven. Our country needs Jesus. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father (God), but by (through) me.” There is no other way.
 
We need two major things to happen: 1. Revival. 2. Evangelism. Revival is to wake up the sleeping church, and stir up believers, and set their heart’s afire. Then comes the most important part: Evangelism. The awakened believers must then get out of their comfort zone and go win the lost. A “revival” that does not result in many people being saved through Jesus is not a real revival at all; it is just a “feel good” event or time period.
 
Prayer Points:
 
1. Pray for the greatest revival ever seen
2. Pray for an explosion of witnessing and soul wining by the believers
3. Pray for Christ-centered sermons in all pulpits across the nation.
4. Pray for protection for our rights to speak the gospel freely.
5. Pray that we become “the salt of the earth” and a “beacon of hope and light” to a hurting world.
 
Tune in tomorrow as we discuss proper relationship between the government and religion, often called “separation of the church and state.” You might learn something.

THERE WERE ONLY EIGHT
 
When God called Noah to build an ark there had not been any rain on earth up to that time. He did not understand what a flood was but was obedient to build an ark anyway. In 2 Peter 2:5 we read, “And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;” When we turn to Genesis, we learn that “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” (Genesis 6:8) Noah preached for one hundred years, but it made no difference. Only he, and the other seven members of his family were saved through the flood.
 
What was different about Noah? Why did he alone and his family find grace? The earlier part of Genesis 6 gives us a clue. In 6:2 it says, “that the sons of God (these are fallen angels) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” These fallen angels created a race of giants (Nephilim), (verse 4) that did not have the purity of Adam’s seed. Noah was the only one in the lineage from Adam that had not polluted his seed with these demonic angels. 
 
In Genesis 6:5 it says, “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”  Because of this, in verse 7 God speaks again, “And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” 
 
In Matthew 24:37 Jesus is speaking and said, “But as the days of Noah were so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”   This is such an astounding statement. If we are to take it literally, and I do, then it means in the days of Jesus’ return there will be evil continually, that every imagination of men’s heart would be done. If it caused God to destroy the world then, why would we believe that it would be different at his return?
 
There are many that call themselves Christians but have never been fruitful in their lives towards the things of God. I believe that there have been prophetic warnings given, (including some that I have given) that have warned the world to repent, to turn from their evil ways and prepare like never before in the secret place with God. Many are putting their trust in a President instead of the King of Kings. Many are complacent in their lives with sin, and if it is true that it will be like Noah’s days, then there will not be as many going to heaven as some believe. I believe that to be truth. It is time to repent individually for not being obedient to the Word of God. It is time to repent from idolatry of serving anything other than God. That includes governmental leaders by the way. It is time to say I am going to go with God even if no one else goes with God. It is time to rise up and be what God has called his body to be, and not back down. Noah made a stand for righteousness and was saved. We need to do the same. Yes, there will be more than 8, but how many more only God knows.

It was a heart full of envy and jealousy that caused Saul to throw javelins at David. He did so even though David was the only one who could soothe his troubled and tormented mind. It’s evident today that jealousy is still dividing friends, churches, ministries, homes and businesses. In fact, all one has to do is to look around and they can see the results of how jealousy completely destroys good covenant relationships.‬

“As I was preaching this morning in Georgia at Christ Fellowship Church of Dawsonville, a prophetic word spontaneously erupted out of my spirit and it was this...
“Because the American Church has refused a Great Awakening in 2020, behold a Rude Awakening is coming in 2021. Rejoice knowing that a remnant will arise from her slumber next year like never before but also mourn and weep knowing the deception and falling away from the truth will be like nothing you have ever heard of or seen before.”

PROPHETIC WORD
 
For I would say unto you this evening that I have a plan for your life, and it is good. The enemy has thrust hard against you, but I have prayed for you saith the Lord. You will not be defeated for you have stood strong on my word and in faith. For I would say that this evening you are declared righteous and totally victorious though the battles at hand seem to rage. For I would say unto you resist those plans that the enemy has and send them back to him seven times over, destroying the plan and the assignment against you. You have been strong in the word and in the power of my might, now continue to stand and you will see things change. Rise up in your authority and take back what has been stolen for you are more than able saith the Lord. Yes, there has been a heavy battle, but you will come through this victorious for I am with you. You shall look back at this day and say, see what the Lord has done. Yes, it is I that is with you, removing obstacles so that you can go forth victorious. For have I not said that in the last days these things would happen, but the remnant will rise up and be victorious for they have not given into the evil one. They have resisted and he is fleeing at this very moment. So, breathe in my spirit and declare my word and go forth victorious saith the Lord.
