If My People: The Cry and the Joy | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 22 –

 If My People – The Cry and the Joy

 As we prepare for the Call 11-11-11 National Solemn assembly in Detroit, we want to pray that it would really be Solemn. We are praying that God would release a Cry for the Abominations we have done.

The key to turning a nation is in God’s people turning our hearts back to God. Sometimes we aren’t even aware of the sins that we have committed. We think that how we live and what we do as the Church is normal and Godly. A messenger of God, that will boldly and gently point out the specific sins and errors that we don’t yet recognize, is a crucial component of any revival and awakening that God seeks to bring to a people.

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray , and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7

We know this scripture back and forth, but what is missing? We gather to pray and we have more pictures than prayers. We have gatherings that are everything but solemn, and we have a Church culture that glosses over and covers up sins, rather than exposing them so that we can cry or feel emotion over them. This stops us from turning to God from the heart. God is going to turn this type of Church culture on its head. 

When Does the Joy Come?

7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth , more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need *no repentance. Luke 15

Is there anyone in the Church who is perfect, and “needs no repentance?” We are righteous by the blood of Christ, but when we really seek God and observe His ways, oftentimes we will find items where we need repentance. GOD in heaven has joy when those who have sinned repent and turn their heart to God.

We need to take part in the full emotion and personality of God. Full joy, full celebration, partying, music and dancing (Luke 15), but ONLY after we receive full vision, full disgust, crying and sadness over sin, and turning. No its not bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Its abandoning our soul to Him and being filled with the Word and Spirit of God.

Join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE….

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

The Call
