I will serve the King

In a private correspondence with a Brother in Christ we were talking about the economy, the election and the culture in America.

Sometimes it seems like all is going down.

He brought me to reality by saying, "On November 5th I will wake up and serve the King".

I am hopeful. I am beleiving God. On the other hand, we rise up and do battle in the Spirit. I have been fasting in the hope of getting a word from God.

He has been silent on the whole election situation. I don't know why other than to acknowledge that He is not a vending machine of the Prophetic. Sometimes he is silent.

He is no less God, creator of all things.

He says so in Isahih 44. All the polls, all the prognostication, all the armwaving on all the media is just so much smoke. What does the creator of all things say?
24 "This is what the LORD says—
your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:
I am the LORD,
who has made all things,
who alone stretched out the heavens,
who spread out the earth by myself,

25 who foils the signs of false prophets
and makes fools of diviners,
who overthrows the learning of the wise
and turns it into nonsense,

26 who carries out the words of his servants
and fulfills the predictions of his messengers,
who says of Jerusalem, 'It shall be inhabited,'
of the towns of Judah, 'They shall be built,'
and of their ruins, 'I will restore them,'

27 who says to the watery deep, 'Be dry,
and I will dry up your streams,'

28 who says of Cyrus, 'He is my shepherd
and will accomplish all that I please;
he will say of Jerusalem, "Let it be rebuilt,"
and of the temple, "Let its foundations be laid." '

If you change the words Jerusalem and Judah and Cyrus to the nomenclature of today in the USA it will help you..

And, does verse 25 remind you of anyone you watch on TV or read in the paper?

the following Word of The Lord through the servant of God, Sr. Pastor Rusty Bowles. Given at a Ugandan Independence Day Celebration in Texas.
Mid Course Correction and Call for Unity

Oct 12, 2008 12

I believe that the events of the day that are happening right now, although they are, in part, the result of greed and avarice, are not just material events that have been precipitated by the actions of a few very powerful men in the world’s eye. The crises that are unfolding right now have been caused by man’s greed, but they are also God’s gracious ( yes gracious) correction because His plans for the USA have gotten so off track that mid course correction is now necessary. Indeed if He did not correct this, then the world monetary markets would self destruct and chaos would reign. That time is not just yet although it will happen at some point in order to facilitate the anti-Christ’s rise to power and his manifestation as a false minion of peace.

Until the Lord sees the correction bring forth His desired results, I think that even the world’s leaders will not be able to facilitate an effective plan to curb, stem or stop the present downward flow that is prevalent world wide. The world’s answer is credit and more credit because the world system revolves on credit! This correction is happening because His people the Christians have cried out about injustice. It has always been this way and He is now positioning the world for the Christian to rise up and be what he or she has been ordained to be from the foundation of the world. It is not judgment on America as you will and have heard, and it is not the end of time just yet although we are closer than ever. It is the correction of the world system prior to coming for a bride without spot or wrinkle. I believe that if the Christian will stand in this hour and pray, and seek His face we will see the greatest revival that this World has ever experienced. Heretofore there have been limited revivals in contained areas, but it is time for Christians all over the world to come together in one mind and one accord in a spirit of prayer and restoration. Lay down the differences that separate us and join hands to stand in this hour.

Oh my! That the CHURCH may HEAR the Word of the Lord. Ohh Lord! Give your people HEARING EARS! Apply the eye salve, open the eyes of our hearts Lord. Break up the fallow ground... Abba, drop the gift of repentance into our hearts that we have been fixated on THINGS and gaining THINGS instead of gaining the KINGDOM. Abba!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Do a new work in us! Bring UNITY to the BODY. Have Your way Lord.

Please pray and meditate on this Saints.

It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes! We SHALL behold His arm outstretched and SEE HIS SALVATION.

Love, Nancy

Heart Prayer

Abba we greet you this morning with hearts full of praise
we give thanks to you O Ancient of days

We walk in quiet assurance and confidence poise
no matter this world's tumult and noise.

With eyes lifted up we look to You
watching and waiting for what You will do
Your mercies are new with each rising sun
You will complete in us what You have begun

Once again we come before Your throne of Grace
to be in Your Presence and to seek Your Face

Our tasks are many, but it’s only in this place
will we receive the help needed for running our race

The world tries to press in with a load of care
But in Your Presence love and peace flows there

Come now Lord, make my heart Your home
I want to be Yours and Yours alone

Precious Father I ask You to clothe me anew
With righteousness found only in You

Keep me from presumptuous sin
Renew a right heart, make me pure within

Create a hunger and a thirst that will not abate
A longing for You that only You can satiate

A love for your Word, a passion for Souls
A zeal for Your Presence that knows no holds

Lord hear my impassioned cry
I must have more of You or I will die!
Visit me, as I wait before You now
In Your Presence I humbly bow.

Today in Intercession God again spoke to me something that He cried
out to me in the wee hours of the morning while in Africa last Nov-Dec.

"How Long must I wait, before my Bride will put on her Wedding Garments?"

He also said it is not about white or black or Asian or African or American. It is HIS BODY, HIS BODY, HIS BODY. He wants to have HIS WAY with HIS BODY. All the divisions and factions and back biting, disenfranchisement and disillusionment must stop!

I saw a figure (I sensed a female ) clothed in a brilliant white robe, but the hem of the garment was soiled from the bottom to a good 4 inches up. We, His bride have allowed our garments to become soiled as we walk through this world. He is calling us to come and dip again in the Blood and be washed anew. He is again calling us to purify ourselves with the washing of the Water of His Word and the Blood of His Son and the Spirit searching and cleansing deep within.

It cannot be church as usual. It cannot be, "we're good enough." It HAS to be by the Spirit, by the Blood and the Word of Almighty God.

The duty of the Priests was to keep the lamp burning in the tabernacle. We have let the light burn down and in many cases go out completely. This is two fold, HE is calling the leadership to repentance, but he is also speaking to each of us as Priests unto Him to Light the Fire again.

Until we are abalze with His Love, His Glory, we will not accomplish anything and certainly not in our own strength. We must rekindle a PASSION for HIM, for the things of HIS HEART, for HIS WORD and HIS PRESENCE. We must begin to minister unto HIM instead of ourselves and our agendas.

It is time for the CHURCH to arise and be strong, and vigourous in Her Love for HIM. It is time to repair the foundations, which have been neglected for years as we have pursued our own things.

Haggai once asked by the Spirit:
"How is it that it's the 'right time' for you to live in your fine new homes while the Home, GOD's Temple, is in ruins?"

The temple of the Lord lieth in ruins in many, many areas. We have neglected it for other things... thus our hearts have grown cold, and the fire has went out. It is time to repair that temple and rebuild the foundation. The temple is US his Body, the Foundation is LOVE. Love of God above ALL ELSE, and then Love of each other.

Below is the Word I was able to put into print of what God was speaking... He spoke so much, I have tried to give you the Essence but here is directly what I got onto paper as HE spoke:

God created and He saw that it was good. Why was it good? Because it was created in Love!

All things are upheld by the Power of His Word. What gives that Word Power? It operates in Love! Have you not read, "God is Love."?

In Him is light and no shadow of turning. That is because Love never fails.

For God SO Loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son... He SO loved the world when HE created it and HE STILL SO LOVES IT.

He is saying, "See I have set before you Blessing and Cursing, Life and Death. Be wise therefore and choose Life. But in choosing life, know also that you are choosing Love, for to not choose love, is to choose death. But love casts out all fear and you CAN walk in love and by this shall all men know you are my disciples-if you love one another."

"It is by Love that Faith works- it is by Love that I dispense Judgement and Justice and Truth and Righteousness are mine and I AM LOVE. So walk in, live in, play in MY LOVE. Everything you do- let it be from MY heart of Love and all that you desire you will see flow from my way of doing and being right. Restore the Foundation of Love."

"The Law was extablished to direct and guide and keep order. But if Love prevailed there would be no need of Law! There is no "law" in Heaven- only Love and Heaven is perfectly ordered!"

"Walk in Love and so fulfill ye the Law- the Law of Love!"

I'd say verse 25 is God NOT being silent on the election situation. LOL. Thanks for pointing that out.
