When you make yourself available to God, you are not on your own time frame.
There is an urgency in the air – in the spirit realm. I don’t believe that we are going to change some of the awful ways we’ve been acting until judgment walks in. There are some things that are escalating around us, things could spiral out of control; quickly.
Everybody’s preaching. It seems we all just have to add our own twist to what’s going on. “Divided,” is now a lost word.
If I’m being too critical or speaking out of turn, forgive me. I wonder if we truly realize just how shallow some of our young people are?
There is no real depth in the way some talk or how they present themselves. Sometimes there seems to be a lack of consideration for others. It’s not their fault. There are much needed things they have not been taught at all. Now trust me, I’m not trying to stir up a hornets nest. We know how many get highly riled on the subject.
But they learned it from us. Many of us have become like children – we never grew up. I sometimes get somewhat tired of seeing so many people waving their flags and making their so-called patriotic comments.
It’s easy to tell that most of them have not spent even one day in the military. I love my country, but I am not about to act like everything is done in truth. It did not take long after I arrived in Vietnam to know something was terribly amiss in this old land.
There was a time when many of us had finally gotten to a better place, while living among different kinds of people. We decided that we were going to treat each other as individuals. We had come far enough, that we sought not to put every person in one group.
It was our desire, not to judge a person or their family by the things somebody else did. We knew nothing about other people’s faith or their churches. It’s because we never went to find out for ourselves.
I don’t know how to express the urgency I’m feeling. I am so ripped apart by what is happening in our country.
May I ask, who was it or what was it, that caused our people to be so divided?
We do not even know what’s real truth anymore. If you were to tell other folks in the world that everything is always 50/50 and too close to call, I already know what they think. Our people don’t care what they think, and that is so terribly foolish. Arrogance causes blindness.
Why aren’t people posting videos of an entire congregation on their faces before God? Moaning and groaning in the Spirit? Weeping so heavily before Him? Humbled totally at His feet?
Was I the only one who saw that in days gone by? I know I wasn’t.
Was it not true that at times the Holy Ghost would move across the entire place? The music would be shut down. Nobody kept singing on and on. It did not matter whether the choir was scheduled to sing or not. Did we teach those coming behind us how to do real intercessory prayer?
Do we remember today, how to get into that old birthing position, where those deep utterances come from? Groanings of the Spirit.
It is not only a decline in Spiritual things. There is a loss of words that you just rarely hear anymore. Integrity, character, courteous, open hearted and not close-minded. Lovers of themselves; was one of the perilous times.
The scriptures talked of those who went around talking things, they didn’t even have any idea about.
The Spirit is calling today for us to sit down and take a good look at ourselves!
