Faith to Overcome in Tumultuous Times
By Jorge Parrott, All Scriptures from AMPC
Can it get any crazier? With all, we have faced this year let’s keep our eyes on the Lord and thank Him for awakening His Bride globally. We are about to see His glory, love and might pour out so vividly the whole world will know! The Lord didn’t send this plague but we see evidence of His glory trails everywhere if we are truly hungry and seek Him.
Rom. 8:28 Million upon millions more are praying worldwide than in many decades.
There have been millions of salvations and healings. There has been much repentance; for individuals, churches, and nations. Prayers and fasting are increasing. This is our time to shine! We know in Isaiah 60:2 “For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.”
The US is facing the most contentious election in recent history. The fate of our nation is at stake as never before. Evil forces are at work to overthrow our nation’s Judeo-Christian roots. Public unrest, lack of respect for one another, even for civil discourse, and respect for the law, even the idea of defunding police is hideous! These tragic events have unleashed rampant fear! Our very freedoms of speech, of religion, to gather peacefully are all threatened by the insanity of lawless thugs, socialists/Marxist terrorists, fueled by generations of secular mind control and political correctness. Pray for every evil scheme to be exposed as you pray for public officials in positions of trust, needing integrity and for judges and state officials to not be intimidated in falsifying results or bowing to the threats.
The Holy Spirit Is The Best Teacher
As soldiers of the Cross now is our time to shine brighter and pray in unity and strong faith for the love of truth and righteousness to prevail. We have the very best teacher ever in the Holy Spirit! He wants to go up to His mountain as we read in Isaiah 2:4 “And many people shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways and that we may walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law and instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
There is blatant demonic deception overtaking our media, schools, sound journalism, truth, and even social media algorithms of deception, and thought control is far too present. If we are not outraged with righteous indignation we must question if we are even saved or able to call ourselves Christians. Abortion and the murder of innocent babies, right up to birth, is now legal in many states. In Isaiah 60:2 we see “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Why is it ok to say ‘woman have the right to choose abortion over the life of their baby,’ but not it is not ok to refuse to wear a mask or take the vaccine? Have we lost our discernment and love for the truth and liberty?
The real war is not over just one nation’s election but is a battle of the ages against the anti-Christ spirit running rampant and threatening the USA and every God-fearing nation founded on democracy and free-market economies. We knew these times were coming and now they are fast upon us worldwide. It is no time for cowardice or expecting the rapture to take us out and spare us. We are to occupy until He comes with faith and bold obedience. The great apostasy has already started and the chasm between true believers and marginal so-called Christians is growing. Holiness and living a consecrated life separates the wheat from the tares. Much moral and financial corruption and evil are being exposed and godly justice is being released as the great reset takes hold. There is much more cleansing to be done. We must choose this day whom we will serve. Joshua 24:15
The Greater Pandemic Is Fear!
We know 1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].”
Spirits of control, religious spirits, Jezebel, Leviathan, Baal, Moloch, Mammon, and greed are running rampant as the enemy of our soul knows its days are numbered. These exist in far too many churches as well as in societies globally. The Lord allows this release of evil as the Holy Spirit teaches us to grow in maturity and the character of Christ. He trusts the sons of God to rise up, grow up and mature into the full stature He created us for as His ecclesia in preparation for ruling and reigning in eternity. The church will not be ignored if we together take a righteous stand and come out from the four walls and cloistered, self-centered comfort zones of past complacency, apathy, and lukewarmness. The shaking will continue and we better be ready. Nothing should surprise us as we stand in the Kingdom that can not be shaken. Psalm 91
Revealing The Hole In The Wall
The Lord will turn the tables and expose the enemy’s failing attempts to steal, kill, and destroy! In Ezekiel 8:1-10 we learn how He does surprising breakthroughs for His plans to play out.
“Then, late in August of the sixth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, as I was talking with the elders of Judah in my home, the power of the Lord God fell upon me. 2 I saw what appeared to be a Man; from his waist down, he was made of fire; from his waist up, he was all amber-colored brightness. 3 He put out what seemed to be a hand and took me by the hair. And the Spirit lifted me up into the sky and seemed to transport me to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate, where the large idol was that had made the Lord so angry. 4 Suddenly the glory of the God of Israel was there, just as I had seen it before in the valley. 5 He said to me, “Son of dust, look toward the north.” So I looked and, sure enough, north of the altar gate in the entrance stood the idol. 6 And he said: “Son of dust, do you see what they are doing? Do you see what great sins the people of Israel are doing here, to push me from my Temple? But come, and I will show you greater sins than these!” 7 Then he brought me to the door of the Temple court, where I could see an opening in the wall. 8 “Now dig into the wall,” he said. I did and uncovered a door to a hidden room. 9 “Go in,” he said, “and see the wickedness going on in there!” 10 So I went in. The walls were covered with pictures of all kinds of snakes, lizards, and hideous creatures, besides all the various idols worshiped by the people of Israel.” Ezekiel 8:1-10
WOW and WOW! The Lord is always faithful and He loves to shine through piercing the darkness and exposing the lies, deception, and fraud. We are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus and His peace overcomes the enemy and passes all our understanding. We can rest in Psalm 2:4
“He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].” Psalm 2:4
We Will Never Spiritually Locked Down!
The Lord is calling us out! Souls are perishing because of a lack of knowledge of their supernatural identity in Christ Jesus. Many of us have been restricted in travel as we see the Lord redeeming technology to stay connected globally. We must use technology for the Kingdom while we can. Each day shapes our eternity. Fellowship, koinonia, discipleship, teaching, and listening are all ways we can stay connected in fellowship as the Lord shifts how the church will be done in the future.
There are times when the Lord of Hosts calls us to ‘come away with Him’ and we must heed His call.
In Isaiah 26:20 “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the [Lord’s] wrath is past.”
Then, there are times He wants us to shout it from the rooftops. Discerning the spirits and the times release His prophets and teachers to speak His words in due season.
In 2 Chron. 20:20 we read “Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established; believe and remain steadfast to His prophets and you shall prosper.”
So many prophets have spoken of the outcome of our US election and are standing firm in what the Lord showed them, even though right now, the world and mainstream media say otherwise, we must not relent or back down in our prevailing prayers and intercession for the Lord’s perfect will to expose every plan of every enemy of righteousness and truth.
Will Jesus Find Faith When He Returns?
When Jesus returns will He find faith? Look in Luke 18:8
“ I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find persistence in] faith on the earth?” Luke 18:8
As we allow the Lord to search us deeply, revealing every area we need to repent of and as we pray for a move of God ushering in the greatest revival in our individual walk with Him, then praying together for revival in our nations and to the ends of the earth for the glory of our King.
This is such an exciting time to be alive, and it’s only by His grace any of us are here today. We need each other to encourage each other in these perilous times. We know the end of the story and because Jesus has already won the victory over the enemy, we win!
Let’s commit together to stand strong in bold faith now and until He returns. Remember, the enemy is not our brethren in His Body but it is satan, the enemy of our soul, who faces a sure defeat as God’s people pray, humble ourselves as in 2 Chron. 7:14 and keep looking up to the Lord and all the seven spirits of God as we press on to the high calling of Christ Jesus, our Lord. We were made for this end-time battle for His glory together! Please let us know how we can pray for you and yours. Visit our website at www.cmm.world and sign up for our free online newsletter.
