Are We In The End-Times?
Yes and no..
Recently I received a message through Facebook asking a question about the end-times. I feel as though there is so much fear in the Body of Christ about the end-times. So today, I want to share the questions and my reply. I pray it brings you peace and great HOPE. Hugs, Lynn
Lynn, how close do you think we are to the Tribulation and Jesus’ return?
Hi my friend, this is a difficult question as so many people have vastly different ideas of where we are in God's timeline. I will quickly share my thoughts about it all. PLEASE PRAY about what I share and ask the Holy Spirit to clarify and bring you peace.
Firstly, I'm of the opinion that God is on the move. I'm witnessing the "church" awaken from a slumber and GREAT things are happening in the Kingdom. And I believe we the church, are on the beginning edge of revival. So, I don't believe Jesus would return before this assigned season of the church is complete. I think there are many, many more souls God is after and I'm expecting to see Asia, Russia and many more countries come to faith. I'm praying for one billion. And I believe it is destined to happen. Salvations and gifting of the Spirit are happening in these countries and especially in the Muslim world. I’m convinced that God wouldn't cut short this revival. It simply doesn’t make sense. God isn’t a God who is confused or changes His plans on a whim.
I'm also of the opinion that as the church, God is asking us to pray for mercy instead of judgement. That is why the Bible said the blood of Christ speaks a better word than that of Abel. God wants to extend mercy through the church and not judgement.
Finally, the temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt. That has not happened yet. I might re-evaluate my thoughts on this subject and the timing if reconstruction begins. But I truly foresee at least another 100 years ahead for the church.
Finally, I believe God gave a reprieve to the USA and extended another 10 years to His people to prosper us and to grow us up. He wants a mature, strong and fully equipped Bride. We aren't there yet. But Jesus is training all of us and we are on the “Fast-track.”
My friend, get ready because you are part of this amazing plan and your purpose in the entire history of the world is so very important. I truly believe this! Whatever challenge you are facing right now is making you stronger and ready to march for the Kingdom of God. SO much good is ahead for you. Hope this helps. Love you. Lynn
Prayer For the 2016 Election: Lynn Donovan
Holy Father, who is in Heaven, Jesus our Messiah and Holy Spirit who moves in our hearts and in our lives, we come before you in obedience and love. We seek Your perfect wisdom. Lord, we plead like Paul, in Ephesians 1:17 for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to know Your will for our country, for our future leaders and to help us to bring unity to Your Church and to our country.
Lord, You knew before time began whom You would appoint as our 45th president. You ordained that this person might be a tool of Your purposes, judgement and or mercy. We ask now that you would bring that person forward and fill them with Your Holy Spirit. We stand in prayer and faith that this person will be humble and submitted to Your Son, Jesus.
Father, right now we come against the powers of darkness, principalities, and rulers of evil. We stand as Your Children, given gifts and authority to cast down all arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. And we declare that this land, the United States of America, will be a nation dedicated to God. We pray you move with great power to defeat the powers of darkness. And we will pray the heavens open and place angels on assignment to defeat evil intentions, lies to the public and deceit. In the name of Jesus.
Lord, we seek your favor and turn from wickedness. We repent on behalf of our brothers and sisters in this country that have aligned themselves with selfish and evil motives. We repent for lies that spew forth from our televisions and in the public square. We beg your forgiveness. Lord, now we ask a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit to sweep across our land and change the atmosphere from division, fear, and hatred and then release love, healing and kinship. Lord, we ask that truth prevail, Your truth. In Jesus holy name.
Father, let your people rise and see their enormous importance to humble themselves and pray this very hour for Your hand of mercy and grace. Let us storm the heavens with petitions that move all of heaven and that defeat hell with finality.
Lord, defeat the devil’s schemes. Remind us to armor up daily and to walk in the Spirit of 2 Timothy 1:7. For you did not give us a spirit of fear but one of power love and sound mind. Grant us a supernatural mind to know exactly how and whom to vote. Lord, let us become warriors, bold and valiant, for Your Kingdom. Let us not shrink back from attacks of evil but rise up and share Your truth with a world that is blind, naked and dying.
Lord, let Your banner over us be love and kindness. You know who our next President will be. We ask that You would bless our county with a humble person who will seek Your face for wisdom as they guide us in the days ahead. Place a covering over this person and family. Place a covering over American and bring about Your perfect plans for this Nation.
We pray all this in the name above all names, Jesus. Christ.
Praying Against The Demonic
In fighting against the tide of the demonic there is nothing more powerful than our words.
The tongue has the power of life and death —Proverbs 18:21a
I literally believe this. So I speak two kinds of words. Words of life - faith, belief, affirmation and truth from the Word of God over my life and family. And second, I speak words that bind, cancel, blind, silence and cast out the enemy.
If you could walk with me one morning in the vineyards, you would likely think I’m wacked. I pray out loud. I shout, wave my arms, raise my arms and let the Holy Spirit inspired words flow. The spoken Word in prayer wields great power. I tell the devil he is a liar and my God who is in me is greater than he who is in the world.
I will pray something like this:
In the name of Jesus, I command the demonic spirit of fear, confusion, sadness (any others that have been revealed to me by the Holy Spirit) I cast you into the pit. I silence you and you have no voice. I command the warrior angels sent to protect me to take you to the pit and to cut off your head. I have the authority of Jesus, my Savior, to cancel all assignments of the enemy. No weapon formed against me will prosper.
Angels, I have been given authority to trample of the enemy (Psalm 91). This very moment I trample on him and all his works and effects assigned to my life. I command the demonic into the pit along with all their works and effects. This spirit of fear, anxiety, sadness cannot go to my children nor follow any of my family line. I rebuke it and command it to leave me and my family forever. I plead the blood of Christ over my home and my family. In the name of Jesus and by His authority.
Jesus, I ask that you would surround me and my family (I name each one by name) with a hedge of protection. Place your holy angels around us. Prosper me and my family. Protect our hearts, soul and bodies. I ask for more of Your Presence and your anointing of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Let our homes be a place of safety, freedom, love, security, peace and joy. Lord, help me to bring heaven into our home.
Papa God, thank you for your faithfulness (I name several specifics). Thank you for your blessings and your provision. I will live to publish your deeds among the nations. Let everything I do, say and think, be anointed and inspired by the Kingdom. Thank you for Your Word. I believe it. I will proclaim it. I will use it as a powerful sword to bring freedom and healing to people.
Keep me humble and always looking to You. The only thing important in this world is Your Presence. I praise you. I worship you. I will always be loyal to you. I am your daughter. In Jesus name. Amen.
