Standing in the Gap

Pray. Pray and intercede. Stand in the gap for those who have not yet turned to the Lord. Do not hold back.
Abandon yourselves to Him. People are blinded to the gravity of our times. They don't want to see. They say our times are like any other. Those who believe this are wrong. Our nation is in trouble and so is the world. 
Open your eyes.

"As long as Moses kept his hands raised up, Israel had the better of the fight, but when he let his hands rest, Amelek had the better of the fight. Moses' hands, however, grew tired; so they put a rock in place for him to sit on. Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other, so that his hands remained steady till sunset."        Exodus  17: 11,12

"Let my eyes stream with tears, day and night, without rest,
Over  the great destruction which overwhelms
the virgin daughter of my people, over her incurable wound."    Jer. 14:17

There is a pruning process going on. A separation of the sheep from the goats. It has been going on for years and it continues to grow in intensity. A smaller group of people called to great holiness. Don't be fooled. If you cannot see this, ask the Lord with all your heart to give you light.

Lord, open the eyes of your people. May the light of your truth shine in all hearts.

Utterly Thine, O Lord!

  1. I totally agree about the pruning process you write about. Soon it will be blatantly obvious where everyone stands and we who love and worship God will have to stand firm in the face of intense opposition.

    Yes and God will give us the supernatural grace to do this.

  3. I like that idea: to stand in the gap.
