A New Beginning

On November 3rd, the Lord spoke to me to pray concerning the election as Jesus prayed in the garden.

Matthew 26:39

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying O my father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Jesus did not want to suffer the shame of the cross. It was a terrible way to die. However, to bring forth the plan of God, Jesus had to suffer the cross, give up his life, and then arise from the dead. There are times when we have to go through things to bring forth the plan of God.

As I was eating lunch on November 4th, tears came into my eyes. I cried out to the Lord and said, “Lord, I do not want to see the death of America.” God spoke to me and said, “What did I tell you on New Years?”

Going into the New Year, God had spoken to me that this would be the most amazing decade of my lifetime. That is all he told me, and I did not ask him to expound on it. After all, that has to mean sunshine, lollipops, peace on earth, and goodwill towards men. Right?

Then God said, “What did you think I was talking about?” I knew God was speaking about my ministry. Then He said, “Did you think it would come without sacrifice?” I answered, “No, my Lord.” He said, “No matter what happens, will you go where I tell you, do what I say, say the words I give you to say?” I said, “Yes, my Lord.” He said, “Will you preach the Kingdom of God is at hand? Will you teach my people how to reach out and touch it so that they might enter into my Kingdom?” I said, “Yes, my Lord.” Do you think that they will do it if there is no need for them to access my Kingdom’s power, anointing, and authority?” I said, “No, my Lord.”

Then God spoke to me and said, “You were born for this day. I have brought you forth for such a time as this.”

I spent most of my life ministering forth the good news of the gospel; however, I always felt as one born out of due season. Over the years, I have traveled all over the United States, into Canada and Mexico, ministered in hundreds of Christian organizations to thousands of people. Many people were touch by the power of God; prophecy flowed, and the glory of God poured forth to the people. Yet, I always felt like I was one born out of due season until now.

God has not revealed to me which way the election will go; however, forward is the only way that I know to go. If you are on my website reading this, November 3rd was election day for the United States president. It is a critical election; all of our freedoms hang on it. I know that most of the people who visit my website live outside of the United States. We have many people from different parts of China, Brazil, and over eighty other countries.

“Whereas I was Blind, Now I See”

DSC_0003 (2)“Let every hidden thing come to light, and every lie revealed.” As God begins answering this prayer, we must also pray that God gives those who have believed the lies the ability to see and understand the truth. Many people are deceived, and it is essential for us to pray that God open their eyes to see. Only until God brings understanding to the hearts will they be able to walk in the light no longer being deceived.
In John 9:1-7 it says, “And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered Neither hath this man sinned, or his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed the eyes of the blind man with clay, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way, therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”
This man had been born blind so that the works of God should be made manifest in him. Jesus came and spat on the ground anointed the eyes of the blind man and sent him to wash in the pool of Siloam. In his blindness, he went to the pool and cleaned the clay from his eyes when he was done he was made whole and now can see in the natural. The most beautiful miracle here is that not only was his physical sight opened but was able to see all things with understanding. He was no longer blinded by the things that he had been taught or told to believe. We see this later in the chapter.
John 9:26-33 says, “Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear It again? Will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him, he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.”
He had an excellent understanding of the kingdom of God even above the religious leaders. That they might have eyes to see and understand is a powerful prayer. It is better than all the words of trying to convince someone to believe the truth. If the understanding comes from the spirit washing away the clay out of their eyes, no one will ever be able to take it away from those who have the spiritual sight to see.
We must pray that every lie is revealed, every hidden thing comes to light and that we all might have eyes to see and not be deceived.
