Amplified Bible7 And will not [our just] God defend and avenge His elect [His chosen ones] who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay [in providing justice] on their behalf? 8 I tell you that He will defend and avenge them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [this kind of persistent] faith on the earth?”
Sisters & Brothers In Christ/Messiah/The Anointed One,
I trust you all 'entered His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise' this past month and as I write once again to you in this last season of 2022, on this first day of Advent, my hope is that you will be prepared and prepare The Way Of The LORD, make straight/smooth in the desert a road/highway for our God (make it clear) and listen very carefully to The Voice Of Him, The Anointed One that is calling you, crying out in the wilderness, according to Isaiah 40:3, 4. Let's be real though, are we crying out to Him both day & night? As we enter into December and The LORD bids us to bring tidings of comfort, comfort and great (Holy Spirit) joy to our families, friends, neighbors, coworkers and even our enemies, to raise up every valley, lay low every hill and mountain; the rough ground is to become level and the rugged places a plain, let us truly examine ourselves to see if we are in what The Word Of God calls 'The Faith!' At the foot of The Cross we are all on a level playing field, naked before a God, Who so loved the world, that is groaning for the fullness of redemption, waiting for the sons of God to be revealed, can those of us who are confessing believers in Christ not see that the time is short and we have plenty of work to do, because He wishes that none would perish and all would come to repentance, but how will they come to know if we don't tell them and show them?
1 Timothy 4:1-5
Amplified BibleApostasy4 But the [Holy] Spirit explicitly and unmistakably declares that in later times some will turn away from the faith, paying attention instead to deceitful and seductive spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 [misled] by the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared as with a branding iron [leaving them incapable of ethical functioning], 3 who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from [certain kinds of] foods which God has created to be gratefully shared by those who believe and have [a clear] knowledge of the truth. 4 For everything God has created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; 5 for it is sanctified [set apart, dedicated to God] by means of the word of God and prayer.
Drawing closely together with Him, as One In The Spirit and Literally 'In The LORD,' let us go BOLDLY, entering into His Throne Room Of (Holy Spirit) Grace & Mercy, interceding on behalf of all the saints, but also for the lost sheep of Israel and those that are not of this fold, meaning the gentile nations (John 10:10), especially the unreached people groups of our day. What are your prayer needs and requests, because over the years I have only ever heard back from one or two of you.
THE FULL ASSURANCE OF FAITH19 Therefore, brethren, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the [Holy of] Holies [by the power and virtue] in the blood of Jesus, 20 By this fresh (new) and living way which He initiated and dedicated and opened for us through the separating curtain (veil of the Holy of Holies), that is, through His flesh, 21 And since we have [such] a great and wonderful and noble Priest [Who rules] over the house of God, 22 Let us all come forward and draw near with true (honest and sincere) hearts in unqualified assurance and absolute conviction engendered by faith (by 1 that leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness), having our hearts sprinkled and purified from a guilty (evil) conscience and our bodies cleansed with pure water. 23 So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the 2 hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word. 24 And let us consider and give 3 attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities, 25 Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.
Let us not grow weary in well doing, because we are closer now to Jesus' Second Coming, as never before in all of human history! In 2023 we will be holding Prayer At The Heart Of New Mexico events in the center of all 33 counties and 23 Tribal Nations in our state and across America (visit http://prayerattheheart.org for more information), praying for a true spiritual awakening and revival to sweep across our land, so we need your prayers and cooperation. Imagine every member within The Body Of Christ doing their part, whatever your part may ne (The Works He Has Called You To Do), God promises that we will enter into His Fullness! I'm hoping and praying that you all finish this year well in The LORD and catch God's Vision and Passion for what's coming in our future!
Lamentations 3:40-41 AMPC
Let us test and examine our ways, and let us return to the Lord! Let us lift up our hearts and our hands [and then with them mount up in prayer] to God in heaven.
If you or someone you know would like to hold a prayer event in or around New Mexico, don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to what God's going to do upon, in and through His Church/Ekklesia/Ecclesia/The Called Out Ones in 2023!
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas/Messiahmas & A BLESSED New Year 2023,
Coordinator for NM Prayer Connect
