“I will stand at My watch and station Myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to Me” | Habakkuk 2:1
While you are truly living in a day in which evil is being called good and good is being called evil (Isaiah 5:20), as My ambassadors, I have equipped you with everything that you need to live victoriously and fight the good fight. Have I not said in My Word the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome? (John 1:5). For in these days, as the darkness becomes more dark, the light of My church will shine even brighter.
I have once said that, “the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps” (Matthew 25:1-4). I am calling forth My intercessors, the ones who carry oil with their lamps. Watch and pray like the wise virgins; hear the call of your Bridegroom!
I am calling you to pray for those in authority over your schools, cities, and nation. My heart is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8); and I will never change. Abraham pleaded with Me to spare the city of Sodom if I found ten righteous people, and I said that I would do so. The same is true today as you intercede and stand in the gap on behalf of your cities and your nation. I urge you to intercede for this upcoming election, for there is much in the balance. Know that your prayers availeth much (James 5:16), and that I will honor your prayers and your faith. Do not underestimate the power of your words! Speak life, speak hope; call forth Heaven to invade Earth, even in what seems to be impossible circumstances. I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me? (Jeremiah 32:27)
While you are indeed living in turbulent times, My Bride is entering into her finest hour. I have a remnant, set aside for such a time as this, that I am calling forth in this very hour. Shake off complacency and the things that would so easily seek to entangle you. My Beloved, My Church, it is time to unleash your sword; it is time to invade the darkness!
I am calling forth My Bride to awake from her slumber. “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:14). The harvest is ripe; there are souls in the balance. I am calling you forward to love the unlovely, to bind up the broken hearted, and to be My hands and feet to a lost and dying generation.
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter — when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and He will say: Here am I” (Isaiah 58:6-9).
I am calling you to be bold and fearless in these days. Have I not said fear not, for I am with you, even to the end of the age? (Isaiah 41:10, Matthew 28:20). For “you are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16). Go forward boldly and show My love. Heal the sick, restore the lost and broken, point them to the Light of the world. You carry the Answer; the Light of the world dwells within you.
I am calling forth My watchmen on the walls; I am raising up My intercessors. Will you answer the call?
