Saints, if your ministers are not calling you to fasting, prayer, repentance, weeping between the porch and the altar, and calling a solemn assembly in this hour in this Nation, they are NOT hearing from God and they themselves, are in a lukewarm back-slidden state!
“Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth, ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink offering is withholden from the house of your God. Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,”Joel 1:13-14.
“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil,”Joel 2:12-13.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people,” Joel 2:15-18.
The results of fasting prayer and weeping between the porch and altar and solemn assemblies is the following scripture:
“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil,”Joel 2:23-24.
Saints, brothers and sisters, remnant warriors and fellow ministers.
The LORD is speaking to me to call a corporate fast.
Our Nation is in dire straits in this present hour as are the Nations.
So I am calling a forty day fasting chain asking that those that commit to this fast to at least fast 1 meal a day during this next 40 days.
Some can fast breakfast. Some can fast breakfast and lunch and break it at 6:00 p.m.
Some can fast whole days as the Spirit leads. They don’t have to fast a complete fast the whole time unless the Holy Spirit leads them to do so.
You can also mix up as the Spirit leads.
We are looking for breakthrough in Our Nation. Our States. Our Cities. Our churches. Our families. Our Ministries and Our personal lives and for a greater release of Power to proclaim the Gospel and bring in the Harvest.
Who will join on this fast?
Fasting and prayer intensifies the fire of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
It stirs up the flame in us and prepares us to receive anointing and glory in our lives.
If we want to see mighty signs and wonders, we will have to go deeper in fasting and prayer.
