Where is my voice? Where are my people, where are my mighty warriors that I called out? The Lord cries, and to this I feel quickened in my spirit. We live in a country that once based the moral standard upon that of the living God, and a thriving church that was not fearful of running into trouble and declaring victory over it. Spiritual defeat was not in the vocabulary. Where are my united people, I feel the Lord ask. In a dream I am carried above the turmoil; above the highest mountain top and his mighty finger points to a sight that is beyond my imagination. Never an audible word spoken, yet had the words have shaken my spirit, as I saw our great cities and country being slowly destroyed by packs of ravenous wolfs.
The enemy is in the camp, my spirit cries out, where are the watchman that once vowed to guard the city? So many watchtowers yet where are the shouts of warning? Where are the soldiers to protect the weak, and innocent? The Lord without hesitation then points to my answer and as clear and audible as the sound of the Shofar. Tears begin to fall as rain as I see the watchman asleep at their post. I see chaos and distractions taking the attention away from the few that still walk the towers. With little or no fight the enemy of God has broken into cities walls.
People of God’s church, we have a mission. It is no longer simply to guard the walls of the city, for the enemy has already entered in. We stand today with a new mission. That mission is to go out among the people, search out and find the enemy and bind the teeth and claw of the wolves. To bring freedom and deliverance to those those have been hindered by either the lack of our previous actions or the current evil. To again pick of the spiritual sword of the mighty Christ and to stand shoulder to shoulder and March forward in unity. Together we are strong in Christ for in Ecclesiastes 4:12 we read - Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (INV)
To shake off the dust from our bodies and from our bibles, and to walk again in his power. The enemy has not prevailed; he is nothing but a barking dog without teeth unless we yield our power to him. The enemy has entered the city not through a fight, but because our backs were turned. Today may each us guard the others back, and may we stand together. If there is a weak link among us, then the others lift them up. In this army we leave none behind – Amen. Let not the blood of the innocent be on our hands. Let us decide today to stand in the gap for all those that can not. For the watchman is indeed responsible. Reading in Ezekiel 33;6 - But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.'
Let us be that arising voice in a world that has remained silent far too long. God has already promised us the victory we just need to believe it. May our Lord and king Jesus Christ be honored and glorified by our actions today.
