The past few years there has been a lot of turmoil, and contention in our country.
People are pointing their fingers at Christians and asking them: “Where is your God”?
The accuser of the brethren is at the door trying to accuse the prophets of being false prophets, and trying to accuse the pastors, teachers and evangelists of giving bogus messages.
People are criticizing the Apostles by saying that they are in error and missed God. Even some Christians are being deceived and beginning to doubt the word of The LORD.
Divination is rampant, and just as in the days of Elijah, there are powers, principalities and rulers of darkness trying to take authority over our nation to no avail, but they will not succeed.
There is a story in the book of 1 Kings about the prophet Elijah confronting the false prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. Elijah invited 450 prophets of Baal to a challenge.
He asked them:
“How long will you waver between two opinions? If The LORD is God then follow Him. If Baal is God then follow him.” 1 Kings 18:21
Elijah told them to make a sacrifice without a natural fire, and the God who answers by fire will prove to be the true God.
They built and alter, slaughtered and cut the oxen and laid them out on the wood of the alter. Elijah then told them to pray to their god to send fire to light their sacrifice.
The prophets of Baal prayed all day and night. They even cut themselves to offer a blood sacrifice to their god to no avail. Elijah then mocked their god.
The next day Elijah told them to pour water on the alter three times. When they did he then called on The LORD (Jehovah) and The LORD answered him and sent fire down and consumed all the water, the sacrifices and the stones.
When all the people saw it they fell on their faces and declared, “The LORD (Elohiym) He is God!” (1 Kings 18:39)
We are about to have a confrontation with the false prophets, the prophets of Baal and the religious leaders.
It is not a physical battle, but a spiritual showdown with the ideologies of man-made religions and the traditions of men. We about about to show the world that the one true God is Jesus Christ.
We are about to win over those who are ensnared by false doctrine, deliver people from the kingdom of darkness and bring them into The Kingdom of Light.
Do not fear or be intimidated by the prophets of Baal, as their plans will not succeed. The LORD is about to show Himself strong on our behalf.
This is the day of unnatural occurrences, when men will leave their ideologies and religious traditions to follow after truth.
We are about to see majestic demonstrations of the power of God. These supernatural encounters will cause men to acknowledge His deity and experience His presence.
The time has come for His glory to be revealed. The LORD is about to raise up a generation who will not be afraid to call down fire from heaven to consume false idols. They will tear down the religious alters and the kingdoms that the enemy is trying to erect.
We are about to witness the inevitable supernatural intervention of God in our country. Don’t be moved by the naysayers, and don’t listen to talebearers.
Call things that are not as though they are. Stay focused, speak the Word, pray the Word and pray in The Spirit.
Stay connected to those who believe because Jesus is about to demonstrate His power in a extraordinary way in the days ahead.
“Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD; and the God who answers by fire, He is God.” 1 Kings 18:24
“Then the fire of The LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!”” 1 Kings 18:38-39
“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God,” 1 Corinthians 2:25
