One of the most impressive things you will find in a church are people who have remained faithful to the vision for years and years. With a sad heart I watched a lot of good people come and go, some in less than a month. Everyone of them had a justifiable reason for checking out but very few of them ever told me what it was.
Proverbs 20:6 Lots of people claim to be loyal and loving, but where on earth can you find one?
People who are loyal and faithful to God have a good reason, they know that without Him they would have a club membership to hell. All my life I wanted just one thing, I wanted to go to heaven. On the night that Jesus saved me, I set my hand to the plow and I never looked back. Some ask the question: What do you think of once saved always saved? I don’t think about it, I don’t want out.
Proverbs 28:20 A faithful man will abound with blessings.
When I accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord I knew nothing about any kind of blessing. I just wanted to be saved and nothing more. It has been well over thirty-five years now and the Lord has blessed me more times than I can recall. I had no idea of all the things a Savior would do, I am now in a committed relationship and I love every day of it. When a saint forsakes his Lord, he disqualifies himself from a lot of blessings but most don’t seem to care. I can understand having a casual relationship with a person, but God is not just another person.
John 6:66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked no more with Him.
These disciples witnessed the miracles of Jesus but it did not have a lasting impression on them. He repeated what He heard His Father say and they didn’t approve of it. So they went back, they backslid, which means they chose the opposite direction of Jesus. If we don’t follow Jesus, who do we follow? The devil has sent out a lot of leaders, folks who lead unsuspecting people in the way of God’s adversary. When God speaks, He leaves no doubt of what His will and motive is. The devil promises us everything but he never mentions the degree of compromise we must accept in order to have what he wants to give us.
Mathew 25:21 Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.
God is looking for people who will rule and reign with Him during the millennial reign of Christ. God is going to replace world leaders with His own people, those who have been faithful to Him. The Bible makes it very clear that there is rank and file in heaven and it is all determined by faithfulness. I salute all of the people who held fast to their place in the kingdom, great shall be your reward in heaven. You may or may not be aware of how hard the devil tried to move you away from your assigned position. The faithful are a living testimony of faith, perseverance and commitment. God bless you.
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.
