In prayer I replied, “Lord there is no Lamentations 6:2.”
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!
Every morning I spend my first hour or however long in prayer and intercession, hopefully in communication with the Holy Spirit. Listening for His response, I ask “Where would You have me read Lord?” Many times, not always, He directs me to a verse or a portion of scripture that brings understanding and clarity to me, often speaking to today’s events. This AM it was different. He replied but there was no such verse!
I know, I thought the same thing. Missed it!!! Right! I kept hearing the same thing. I came against any spirit of confusion as I often do as a practice.
“There is no 6:2 Lord?”
“You will write it now.” “WHAT?” Red flag, red flag!
Now I will write what He spoke to my spirit. It will help to leave off where Jeremiah ended the book, last chapter, last verse.
Lamentations 5:19-22 (NASB)
“You, O LORD, rule forever; Your throne is from generation to generation. 20 Why do You forget us forever? Why do You forsake us so long? 21 Restore us to You, O LORD, that we may be restored; Renew our days as of old, 22 Unless You have utterly rejected us And are exceedingly angry with us.”
Does this sound like us right now, in America? Those who know God are appealing to Him, wanting Him to no longer forsake us, to restore this nation back to Him?
6:1 “A land, a nation, I can reject as it has rejected Me and the Son of your salvation. There is no name above the name of Jesus. His name speaks of Me and the Salvation that is in My name.” 6:2 “Refusing to use the name of your salvation, the purchaser of your souls, the teacher of MY Way, My Truth, My Life, negates your effort to invoke My place in your effort to regain and make righteous your nation. 6:3 Even as sons are used to testify of the goodness, strength, and faithfulness (to them) of their father. My Son has died to prove the same of Me and yet His name has been left out lest some be offended? 6:4 “I AM offended! 6:5 Except you repent of such ignorance and lack of wisdom, you are no different and less honest than your opponents. At least they do not pretend to listen to Me and turn to My seven spirits. (Isaiah 11:2) 6:6 You heard love and respect from children toward their father. Will I hear love and respect toward Me? Do I not set those I set, in authority? Is there any doubt? 6:7 The battle you are in is one savior against another Savior. Is your savior found in mankind or in Jesus the Christ? I have already defeated the Muslim foes! It is up to you to choose life and defeat the foe that is of your own making. 6:8 What you tolerate you must live with and in My eyes, you will die with. Choose life! You can do this! Choose My will to be your will, in Jesus’ ever to be exalted name!”
I continue, God is adding to the book of your heart and mine. We must lament our choices. We cannot go half way back to Him as a nation or as an individual. His name, the Lord’s name “Jesus” must be spoken in our endeavor to win back our nation. It is our investment for success. The chance we take. God gives success not man.
There is no excuse for excusing the name of the Lord from our endeavors. How else do we make ours His?
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB)
The Word says in 1 Peter 4:11 (KJV)
“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
May the boldness and reverence I write with, not be a stumbling block to you but instead become boldness and deeds you exhibit.
What good is a bold candidate without a Godly boldness at the heart of it all.
Anything you have heard from me over these many (136) postings, was very likely new to me also. Does it line up with the Word? Always! So read again what I have shared today and see the grace God is extending to us all. There is no victory without His name being exalted. He IS the salvation of a nation that turns to Him fully and to a heart that does the same.
“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”
In the guardianship of Christ,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
