Has anyone been watching the news lately? There is obviously so much going on with different forms of wars happening all over the world, deadly diseases killing and threatening to wipe out at an alarming rate, people being kidnapped and beheaded to name just a few! These are obviously very serious and desperate times. As much as people generally have an opinion about what should be done to fix things, it is quite apparent that really things are reaching a crisis point! These are the last days and no-one really knows what to do for the best! As people of God however, we are told that when we see these things we are to look up!
Luke 21 verse 9 -11, 28, 36
And when you hear of wars and insurrections ( disturbances, disorder, and confusion) do not become alarmed and panic-stricken and terrified; for all this must take place first, but the end will not come immediately. Then he told them that nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be mighty and various places, famines and pestilences ( plagues, malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating)……(could that include Ebola by any chance)?
Now when these things begin to occur, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption, (deliverance) is drawing near.
Keep awake then and watch at all times ( be discreet, attentive and ready) praying that you will have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things that will take place, and too stand in the presence of the son of man.
If ever there was a time that we needed to knock on Heaven’s door, pray and ask God for the answers to all that we see going on around us, it is now! The prayers of a righteous man avails much, so as people of God I encourage you to watch the news and pray accordingly. Our prayers are a force to be reckoned with, and one of the spiritual weapons that the bible talks about that pulls down strongholds. So what are you waiting for? If you want to know how to make a huge difference to the chaos that you see all around, don’t hesitate, let’s start praying together today!
James Chapter 5 verse 16
The earnest (heartfelt,continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available, (dynamic in its working).
