Division Breeds Rebellion
If the Church in America could ever get past the doctrinal issues which separate them and work together, we would be a formidable force in the nation. A religious spirit is at the root of that. Satan releases that spirit to keep us divided and so we’ll make things harder on ourselves. If we could ever get in unity and pray together and work together to expand God’s dream in this nation, we would experience true freedom and liberty.
Let’s go back to the garden. Eve saw that the fruit on the forbidden tree was desirable to make her wise. The word for desirable is “chamad”. What it means is “ungoverned desire” or “covet”. It is freedom or liberty without restraint. See, Adam and Eve were supposed to have always stayed under His government. When desire comes out from under God’s government, you have liberty with license. You end up losing your liberty, because you have refused to have a government over your liberty and that will land you in a bad ending. Think, “If I ignore the law and drink and drive, I’ll go to jail.” So, America has become a rebellious nation in some ways, because the people have begun to want liberty without restraint. God is saying, “I am trying to recapture a nation’s heart and I’m going to do that through a Third Great Awakening, so I can bring the people back under Me. Then, they can bring those desires back under My Lordship and we can get on to dreaming together as friends.”
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” (Titus 2:11-14; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Say, “A new birth, a re-birth, is coming to America.”
- Say, “Your Jacob nature, America, is going to be dealt with. You are once again going to say, ‘He is My God. He is not just the God of my daddy or my great granddaddy or my great-great-granddaddy. He’s my God!’”
- Command this nation to shift back into its original calling to send the Gospel to the nations. That was God’s dream.
- Call for Him to come to Africa, Asia, South America, Europe and the islands of the sea! Call for revival, renewal, and awakening!
- Say, “Come back to this nation and arrest this nation from its prodigal ways and move us back to dreaming with You!”
A prayer you can pray:
We say, “A new birth, a re-birth, is coming. We say, “Your Jacob nature, America, is going to be dealt with. You are once again going to say, ‘He is My God. He is not just the God of my daddy or my great granddaddy or my great great granddaddy. He’s my God!’” You are going to do such a deep work in us that You can get on with The Dream. Not only are we going to see harvest, but we are going to see a shift in the heart of a nation again. We are also going to see a shift back into the calling of this nation to be a people you can dream through, and You will be able to use us even more to recapture the family all over the planet! You’re going to come to Asia. You’re coming to Europe. You’re coming to Africa. You are coming to the islands of the sea, to South America, to North America, because there is a huge harvest waiting for You! You are going to get the family back! So, Lord, we willing bow the knee at Penuel. We willingly bow the knee. We say, “Come back to this nation and arrest this nation from its prodigal ways and move us back to dreaming with You!” We humble ourselves before you, King Jesus. Amen.
God is MY God and I am dreaming with Him for America’s destiny!
