There is no doubt that we are in perilous times, the amplified Bible says times hard to deal with. The last days did not start in our life time, they began on the day of Pentecost. They have grown worse and worse with every passing year and the devil is not done yet. The devil is the minister of misery and he is quite good at his temporary self assigned duty. The devil cheers as his subjects live further and further from God, demonstrating a blatant disregard for all things God. I hear people all the time calling for Jesus to come and get us out of this sin laden world.
Mathew 24:14 The Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come.
Jesus is not coming back because the world is in chaos, He will come for us after the Christians proclaim His Word over the whole world. Reinhard Bonnke was able to preach to over seventy-nine million people in his life time, because men like Kenneth Copeland sowed millions of dollars into his ministry. Missionaries and Evangelists are flying all over the world preaching the Gospel, some on their very own air planes. They are desperately working to enlist the world and what do they get? Criticism from other brethren. God gave man air planes to go into all the world, he gave man television to record Gospel meetings and He gave us the internet to give the world access to His Word twenty-four seven. Right on cue the devil found a slew of men who would misuse these gifts for ungodly gain.
John 17:15 I pray not that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil.
Jesus did not run from the devil, He went toe to toe with him and totally defeated him. Now He prays to the Father to leave us in this chaotic world and have dominion over the devil He whipped. The devil can introduce a lot of garbage into our lives, but the only way he can win is if we turn away from our Lord and go back. He can bring illness, lack and even rejection from the brethren but none of these are a victory for the evil one. When a believer stays true to Jesus until the day he takes his last breath, he has the victory Jesus died to give him. Every time a believer goes to heaven the devil is credited with the failure to impart his evil ways.
1 John 5:4 Whosoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.
Faith is simply believing God’s Word to the degree that you order your life to it. We overcome the world with our faith, so the devil’s number one target is our faith in God. If we hold fast to our faith like Job did we cannot be defeated. We are not of this world so we are not participants of the chaos, it is not our portion. Before Jesus left He gave us His peace, not as the world gives. Peace is not the absence of problems, it is the constant continual presence of God. We are not part of this world, we are not part of the chaos.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
