I moved to my sweet little country town of Eaton, Colorado 15 years ago. My small 1910-built craftsman house was on a pleasant, quiet, tree-lined street. To hear the Eaton fire truck or ambulance siren was a very rare occasion. Now, 15 years later, I am hearing the blaring of sirens in this town almost DAILY. Two days ago I heard them no less than four times as they raced down our street, sirens blaring, lights flashing. The times are dark and ominous, friends. The tension is palpable. Our own government has given us over to the Taliban jihadists who seek to destroy us. There is no doubt in my heart and mind now that the LORD God Almighty is allowing judgments on America. Yet, in the midst of all this, God's V oice is loud and strong, calling us to higher ground in the Spirit realm. He is birthing a Kingdom through painful labor and our work is to set aside earthly things and ways and become KINGDOM-MINDED!
My sister in Illinois called the other day to give me a Word from God that was given during her church's prayer time. It came from Numbers 32, and the context was the two tribes of Reuben and Gad who were asking permission to just stay on the east side of the Jordan and settle with their flocks and herds, while the other 8 tribes cross the Jordan and do battle for their territories. Moses' response to them was, "If you will arm yourselves before the LORD for battle, and if all of you will go armed over the Jordan before the LORD until H has driven His enemies out before Him, then when the land is subdued, you may return and be free from your obligation to the LORD and to Israel." My sister's translation read, "If you will SUIT UP before the LORD and do battle..." The phrase "suit up" seemed to quicken mightily in my spirit. And then later that evening, dear brother in the Lord, Robert Ward, sent me another word with the same message. Jeremiah 1:16-17: "I will pronounce judgment against them for abandoning me [says the LORD]... STAND UP and tell them everything I order you to say." These words through the Holy Spirit are not a coincidence. They are the same call given to us in Ephesians 6:11,13: "PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD so that you can take your STAND against the devil's schemes. Put on the full armor of God (SUIT UP!) so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to STAND YOUR GROUND and after you have done everything, to STAND."
Do you feel that we are IN that "day of evil" right now? I do. And these messages coming at us simultaneously from different sources and different Scriptures line up once again in order to speak loud and clear to the Children of God. It's time to join our brothers and sisters and SUIT UP IN THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD, ready to do battle in prayer and intercession, fighting against all the devil's schemes! We can no longer just bury our hands in the sand and go on as if nothing is happening around us. The western half of the U.S. is on fire and the eastern half is flooded. YEHOVAH is getting ready to shake all that can be shaken in order to wake up slumbering believers and REACH lost souls!
John Glucek wrote, "There is a spirit among those who are moving toward God's judgment that is a kind of stupor. This is the stupor of those who did not receive the truth and so be delivered. This is the unrighteous deception that leads to destruction. (See 2 Thess. 2:8-12). Do you know those around you who are in this stupor? They are all around us, actually, in our neighborhoods, our grocery stores, our schools. They are in danger of believing the great Deception (Deceiver) who is coming! Glucek says "It costs something to love the Truth."
He's right. The Truth is Jesus; and His Gospel is a Gospel of Suffering. His Way is the Narrow Path. But His Life is Eternity. It's time for us to prepare our hearts for the road ahead. It's time for us to "suit up" for battle. It's time to set aside earthly things and become Kingdom-minded. And in Glynda Lomax's prophetic word dated September 2, 2021, the LORD God says to us all, "In the end, I am all you have as the world you know begins spiraling toward destruction. It cannot bear up under the weight of so much sin. But in the end...I AM ALL YOU NEED."
