The escalation of violence, persecution, and savagery towards Christians, American personnel, and embassies comes as no surprise following the Arab Spring of 2011. Recently, four Christians were crucified in Egypt with almost no media coverage. In May of this year, the U.S. State Deptartment stopped including persecution of Christians as a violation of human rights. The Lord is seeking to gain our attention. The church is a sleeping giant.
Though cries for democracy in the spring of 2011 were heard around the world, it was soon discovered that American-friendly or neutral dictators in many nations were being replaced by generally pro-Sharia law Muslim Brotherhood factions at a rapid pace, often with the support of the U.S. Administration. For thousands of years, many of these tribal factions have been at war with each other and with the outside world. These people groups are often best led by heavy-handed dictators.
Not enough Americans understand the extent to which our constitutional rights are endangered by the expansion of pro-Sharia forces gaining ground on many fronts around the world. The weak leadership of our own White House has paved the way for these uprisings and cries for democracy to usher in pro-Sharia law and Muslim Brotherhood regimes intent on destroying Israel and America.
An alleged shocking report last week detailing how our Secretary of State changed the policy stating that Embassy guards cannot even carry bullets may well have led to the assassination of our U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Libya is not Mayberry RFD. The Middle East of the 21st century requires strong, decisive leadership and firepower to maintain order and the respect of these tribal factions.
The Great Commission Will Be Fulfilled Because It Is God’s Will
While Americans are facing increasing danger in more and more nations, we must be able to adjust and adapt our strategy for equipping native pastors and missionaries. There exists an increasingly urgent need to train, equip, and strengthen force multipliers of the 7 Mountain Mandate overseas.
God’s Strategy Is Gaining Clarity
We have requests from persecuted Africans and Chinese for missions and prophetic training to go into many nations, many of them dangerous Muslim strongholds, to love the precious souls who do not know Jesus. Adherents to the vision of the “road back to Jerusalem movement” in China are waiting for teachers to help them grow stronger in the Word of God, faith, the Holy Spirit, and the prophetic to go to many places where white Westerners cannot go.
Our friends in India are doubling the number of their churches and waiting on teachers from MorningStar to equip and impart the kingdom worldview. Friends in Hispanic nations are another huge people group awaiting training and equipping to go into these hard places to love the lost into the kingdom of God. Souls are precious and time is short. We are seeing history in the making before our very eyes. “The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted” (Psalm 46:6).
May our hearts first be melted with the love of Jesus that compels us to lay down our own lives to win precious souls into the eternal heavenly realm.
Trusted News Service Reporters Needed
We are seeing more and more a lack of reliable news reporting in the global news media. We have been increasingly aware of the value of trusted friends on the ground in strategic regions of the globe. The emerging Christian news service Rick Joyner has envisioned years ago needs astute, competent journalists and fact checkers as never before.
Trusted Native Embedded Missionaries
Our network of over 500 missionary leaders really consists of almost 15,000 servant hearted pastors and leaders in over 45 nations. As we have seen, advancing strides have been made within our network of friends as we have developed our rapid response teams in stealth mode. Our generous partners and intercessors working as a team with our missionaries have all played a part in the release of Pastor Youcef and Rimsha Masih in Pakistan. Increasing persecution forces us to trust the Lord for wisdom and safe approaches to continue the good fight of faith. We must go to higher levels in prayer, intimacy, intercession, and prophetic insight. Rick Joyner was shown two doors open to us this summer. Are we ready to walk through those two doors to go higher in favor, grace, and the prophetic?
Increasing Hunger For The Lord
In light of these recent developments, we can see the heightened urgenc for the need to equip and strengthen the global body of Christ while we still can communicate and travel to some of these dangerous regions of the world. The time may come soon where we may regret we did not do more while we could to take in resources, all types of ministry teams, teachers, and the training in the prophetic, as well as humanitarian and educational aid. We must always advance with urgency while we have “today.”
The Risk To Communications In the Days Ahead
As the risk of an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) over the U.S. or any strategic region increases, we could face being cut off from all communications except perhaps ham radio. I do not wish to cause alarm or operate in fear, but to plan strategically and wisely for the intensifying warfare as heaven invades earth and we see the Lord victorious. We must prepare for the unexpected and remember we stand in a kingdom that cannot be shaken.
New technologies will be developed, but we need to be prepared in the event of disasters, short or long term, to protect and feed our families, have adequate and safe water supplies, and to pro-actively continue to raise up strong leaders ready to persevere in great trials and tribulation until the day Jesus returns to reign in victory. Will our prophetic gifting increase to the point which non-verbal global communications become a reality? We have the mind of Christ and the blood of Jesus is more than enough for us to fulfill Jesus’ words “that even the least of these shall be greater than John the Baptist” (see Matthew 11:11). Jesus returned to heaven so He could send the Holy Spirit to help us in all our ways. We serve the God of the impossible. We must endeavor to not limit what God wants to do now.
Our preparation must include the “generational teamwork’” charge given us which was spoken of in Hebrews 11:40, “God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.” Boldness of faith, courage, and sacrifice will mark the warriors bearing great fruit.
Modern Heroes Of The Faith Do Not Need A Mirror
Our Christian lives are a gift of the greatest adventure. We are in the days the heroes of the faith dreamed of as we read in Hebrews 11. We all are called to step further into this supernatural realm and believe the way the Lord desires us to believe. The liberty that comes to those who have received the fire of the Holy Spirit baptism is unstoppable whether we are free, imprisoned, buried alive, or even crucified.
We can be witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus Christ if our hunger is great enough. The tests, trials, and opportunities are increasing. Jesus says in John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
Jesus Is Waiting To Intercede On Our Behalf
What is your desire? May we get a revelation today of what Jesus makes available to us when He said, “We have not because we ask not.” Night and day Jesus goes to Father God. Imagine what is waiting for you when you ask according to God’s will. “ Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24). The Lord has given us opportunities to drink the best wine He saved for the end times. Will we take this cup?
