Stand Up. Look Up. Rejoice!

 


This week’s installment by Rick Joyner on the Second American Revolutionary/Civil War is worthy reading for every patriot and provides much needed encouragement as we face the month of August which promises to be very, very intense.


I am offering this mid-week topic as
a place to fortify ourselves;
a place to pray for America,
for believers around the world,
for those blinded by the darkness,
and for the “good guys”
who are risking it all for liberty.

The Second American Revolutionary/Civil War

by Rick Joyner

When Jesus was asked about the signs of the end of the age in Matthew 24 and Luke 21, He described the general conditions that have now come upon us and gave us three things to do:

     1) stand up
     2) look up
     3) rejoice!

     These are the three main things that we should set our hearts to do each day. We must stand up for what we believe with courage and boldness. We do this by looking up to see the One who is on the throne above all rule, authority, and dominion. If we see Him as He is and where He sits, we will rejoice knowing with certainty that His kingdom is coming and His will is going to be done on earth as it is in heaven. This “joy of The Lord” will be our strength.

     It is our first duty to take a stand for The Lord and His truth. We must never retreat before the enemies of the cross. We must resolve that we will not stop fighting until the entire earth and all it contains serves The Lord. He has paid the full price for it, and it is His. As soldiers of the cross, it is our duty to stand resolutely for what belongs to our King.

     We have the strength and boldness to do this when we put our faith in Him, seeing Who He is and where He sits above all authority, power, and dominion. Those who live by seeing Him as He is live as He lived, and choose death over compromising what He paid such a price for. His truth is more precious than our temporary life in this world, and we must resolve that regardless of the cost we will stand for Him. We are here to preach the good news of His coming kingdom and to help prepare the way for His coming, building a highway that is His higher way.

     Knowing these things, how can we not rejoice regardless of how dark it may look for a time? The night gets the darkest and coldest just before the sun rises. It is during this darkest time that the stars shine the brightest. Throughout history, the brightest lights have appeared during the darkest times. We are told that the darkest times of all will be at the end of this age. So, it is then that we can expect some of the brightest stars of all, The Son of God and “the morning star,” a sure testimony that the day is about to dawn, will soon appear.

     So how do we stand up as one of those lights? We get engaged. “The future belongs to those who show up.” We get engaged where the darkness is. As we are faithful in engaging in even the small things, He will give us authority over bigger matters. We get engaged attending school board meetings and county and city board meetings. We get engaged in media, education, business, sports, and entertainment. We let our voices be heard clearly and often. We do not shrink back from confronting the darkness and resolutely standing up to it.

     We do not know how much longer the darkness will last until The Son appears, but let us resolve to embrace this opportunity to stand up for The King—to stand on His word and to make His Gospel known even against the greatest opposition. To stand against the greatest darkness is the greatest honor we could be given.

     At the same time, being a light in the darkness is not just about standing against the darkness; it is also having and being the answer to the greatest problems. We must be solution oriented people instead of just problem oriented people. Our message is how bright The Light is, not how dark the evil is.

     As racism rages, let us resolve to be the temple of The Lord that is a house of prayer for all races. Let us search our own hearts for any prejudice and resolve that we will not judge others by the color of their skin, but rather by the content of their character. Let us rise far above just tolerance of those who are different and determine that we will esteem these and rejoice to know them so that we can learn things we do not understand.

     As hatred rages, let us resolve to grow in love, even the ultimate love that loves our enemies. Let us determine to hold to the truth that people are never our enemy, and that we do not war against flesh and blood, but against evil spiritual forces of wickedness that have captivated people. We are sent to set the people free. Fear is the biggest demonic inroad, or “gate of hell.” Perfect love casts out fear, so let us resolve to grow in the love that casts out the fears by which the devil has bound people.

     We are told in Romans 16:20 that “the God of peace will soon crush Satan under our feet.” Two major takeaways from this is that 1) He wants to do this under our feet, and 2) it is the peace of God that crushes him. Do not ever lose His peace. Peace is the result of our faith in Him—who He is and where He sits above all rule and authority and dominion. As we go into battle, peace is a primary weapon and our primary strategy. So let us resolve to protect it and use it to the fullest effect. In these times of rising anxiety and fear, those who walk in the peace of God will stand out as the great lights of hope that the world so desperately needs. NEVER LOSE THE PEACE OF GOD.

The Great Awakening is Coming

We here, at Wolfmoon’s Q Tree House, like to watch for cues from the Q Team. That is, to ponder, discuss, consider, share, what the Q Team highlights for our consideration. One of the key phrases in the Q posts has been “Great Awakening.”

This is a well known term from the early days of our nation. There were times of “awakenings” where by the prayers of believers and by the sovereign mercies of God thousands of wayward souls were consumed by an uncharacteristic sense of the nearness of God through the Holy Spirit, with a correlating desire to be cleansed and restored to right relationship with their Heavenly Father through the redemptive work of His Son on the cross.

These awakenings seem to come at key times in our history when a course correction was needed. It is easy enough to see in our day that we have been long overdue for a course correction. And so it seems appropriate to open up this thread for prayer for those that are ready and willing to battle together for their King.

It is likely that we each will have our own way of participating. That’s good and right. Some have already said they are seeking God with fasting. Some are part of other groups that pray. Some have no words.

Maybe some will post a prayer meme or the text of a traditional prayer. Others might compose their own Spirit-breathed prayer for us to join in to pray with them. Everyone that wants to add their heart-felt prayers is very, very welcome.

Let’s P.R.A.Y.!

  2. “HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].
    I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
    For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
    [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.
    You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.
    A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.
    Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, [Ps. 91:1, 14.]
    There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent. For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].
    They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. [Luke 4:10, 11; Heb. 1:14.]
    You shall tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the serpent shall you trample underfoot. [Luke 10:19.]
    Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness–trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
    He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
    With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.”

    ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭91:1-16‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

  3. Good deal! THIS is the kind of preparation we need!

    Before proper physical preparation, there must be sound mental preparation. Before sound mental preparation, there must be real spiritual preparation.

  4. Thanks T’3, our God is am awesome God! He will reign on heaven and earth. I know I’ve forgotten that at times and done things that I never should have. And yet he was there for me when I called for him, forgiving and loving me still. I truly believe we are seeing the hand of God working at this time in history calling his people once again to rise up in prayer.
    What a glorious time to be alive! I know we get all upset the way things go at times but Gods in control and I/we forget that.
    God Bless

  5. Thank you, T3. I have prayed for over 20 years for the Great Awakening to begin during my life on this planet. As I prayed on the mall in DC with hundreds of thousands of fellow Promise Keepers at Stand in the Gap we sensed God’s presence as He was honored and lifted up. May the Lord protect PDT and all patriots as we do his will no matter what may come.

  6. Thank you T3 for another edifying post and to bring it to us on a Tuesday! Reminded me to check my latest notification from Bible Offline app,

    And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

  7. Beautiful, T3, and always timely to acknowledge the power of prayer. I am one who prays often without words other than ‘Thank you, Jesus’, but that does not lessen the closeness I feel to Our Lord. He knows everything my thank you encompasses.
