I remember where I was, and what I saw. There was a twist on that day, as things were set on a new path. It was a kairos moment, and a warning for those to see who would see. At that point the economy (in particular) and military were put under judgment as the idolatrous gods that they have become.
It seems to me that the political was protected on that day, because the president acknowledged the Lord (note the 270 degree turn in the final suicide plane as it headed initially for the White House). Not for any other reason either, not for a great administration, perfect policies, partisan politics – simply because he acknowledged the name of the great I AM.
Now, I see the same swift stroke as does Susan, I see a sudden cathartic action, recently I saw in my minds eye the avalanche. We will prepare now in Christ, or we will be overcome.
We did not wake up on 9/11 but merely stirred. Now will we sleepwalk into destruction? Will we wake this time, or will it prove equally as transient as before – like with the last king of Israel? There, the weight of judgment brought things to an end even when the people made a gesture in the right direction.
This time, will it be enough?
Lord, have mercy.
SUSAN’S BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Which is good for you Code 🙂
Hi Peter – The Lord raised up the National House of Prayer in Ottawa in the last two years and they have groups of intercessors, prayer days etc. to pray for the Government and Canada. I hope this is part of the protection. We pray for our Church and our families – is there anything else we could do?
We had a meeting of lay delegates at our Church to explain what is happening this June and there was unanimous agreement against SSB.
Having been in the place for the last month, of seeing and experiencing the glories of His Holy Presence, it has been all too easy to not focus upon this reality as well.
Thank you for your faithfulness to call us to readiness, preparedness and to the reality of the world around us, that remains sold out to sin and its source in darkness.
Thank you also for your consistent focus upon the grace, graciousness and hope that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ, without which it would be all too easy to fall into despair.
The Good News is as always, His hope that does not disappoint and the faithfulness of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus!
Every Blessing in the Lord Jesus Christ!
You never wrote a truer word when you said that we are sleepwalking into destruction. 9/11 was indeed a wake-up call but here in the church 9/11 was merely seen as a TV spectacular which won’t affect us in real life. I myself have no idea why Canada is in Afghanistan but worse than that neither has the church! Too many people in the church suffer from Orwell’s stop crime in that while they know many topics should be discussed fear of “public” disapproval shuts them up. For example, was America’s foreign policy to blame or was it their immigration policy? I’ll stop here now as you are thinking that by questioning immigration I am a racist which means that I am a…….. which all proves that George Orwell was right. Which is all fine and dandy but where is the church in this?
Greetings. So imperative it is to draw in close to the Lord Jesus and be alerted to that which is coming to pass. Thanks for the reminders and for being faithful to tell what the Lord places on your heart.
Have a blessed evening in Christ.
Will we sleepwalk into destruction?
Our youngest two sons used to sleepwalk when they were small. One night in the middle of a particularly cold winter I was in the kitchen around 1am when I heard the front door open. I went to see who was there and found our son who was about 4 at the time sleepwalking barefoot out in the icy snow oblivious to the cold.
As always it was impossible to wake him up so I carried him back to bed thanking the Lord that I was awake. Had I not been he may have perished in the cold night.
It’s a true but sad analogy. We have passed the time of warning; we need to be awake and alert, ready to face by the Lords grace and in His strength what is coming next.
But truly in Him we have hope and so much more!
May the Lord have mercy and grant us grace in that day and hour!
Thank you for keeping this before us.
Many Blessings to you Peter in Jesus wonderful grace! (and thank you for the ping too.) Even so Lord Jesus come.
Phil, Susan – Thank you for your comments and that you both touched on the bit I felt was missing in this post. Do you ever post, or come to post – and feel something is missing, but do not know what? Well, as Phil said:
“Thank you also for your consistent focus upon the grace, graciousness and hope that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ, without which it would be all too easy to fall into despair. ”
Somthing missing I think this time round. Ah well, we are all but fallible, so thank you for introducing that note which was sore needed I think. Blessings!
Hi white rabbit, thanks for the comments. I know what you mean, when even bringing up some subjects automatically invites a label, racist in this case. Labels are always easier than engaging an issue.
Hi Timbob – you are most welcome, though like I said I think I might not have hit the mark quite right this time. Nevermind, it is good that other folk chime in with additional pieces 🙂
Pauline – Pulled you out of spam again, sorry about that!
I think that prayer is the single most potent force – and a continual prayer of repentance over the nation and asking for Gods grace and mercy really key.
Peter, I have to agree with you that prayer and repentance is so vital and important! Lord give us your heart and the burden to intercede in this hour, lest we too be found slumbering.
I’m already fighting the dullness of jet lag and the heat 9 it’s been in the 90’s since we returned. A far cry from the UK!
Blessings to you and your family Peter, great grace and joy!
Temperatures in the 90s – ouch. It’s into the 80s here (28c), and that’s hot enough for me!
Blessings on you and yours 🙂
