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.

Occupy Jesus Christ (Behold My Servant) | Countdown to the Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 26 –

OCCUPY JESUS CHRIST(Behold My Servant) – Justice for the Nations

I was at an amazing prayer meeting the other day. I’m not sure if anything like this has ever happened before, but one of the top leaders in the COGIC denomination, one of the top leaders in the AOG denomination, and many pastors in the city of Detroit held a unified prayer meeting and started a 21-day fast. COGIC and AOG split racially (black & white) after Azuza Street, so the spiritual significance of the unity was amazing. The Prayer was for the poor, and all types of revival in Detroit.

But anyway, I just want to share a quick blog inspired by a 5 minute sermonette by Stuart Greaves on the Kingdom Justice Movement that is based not on political and social causes, but on Jesus Christ. True effective Justice only comes from God, and is centered on Jesus Christ. We are expounding on Isaiah 42:

1 Behold – [You have to BEHOLD Jesus Christ if You want Justice, or True judgement. This is the main thing, and the first and last priority.]

 my servant,– [Jesus is GOD’s servant, he proactively fulfills God’s every practical desire

whom I uphold – [GOD supports, upholds, undergirds, and sustains His servant] ;

mine elect, – [God’s servant has been chosen and endorsed by Him, he is confident in God’s decision to choose him]

in whom my soul delighteth – [God delights in Him, God has pleasure in His servant Jesus.] ;

I have put my spirit upon him: – [ God gave Jesus His power and His spirit to do great exploits]

he shall bring forth judgment  to the Gentiles. – [ Jesus is the only person qualified to bring judgement to the people of the earth ]

2 He shall not cry , nor lift up , nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.  – [ Jesus preached His message with boldness, but He didn’t strive, debate, or argue. ]

3 A bruised reed shall he not break , and the smoking flax shall he not quench – [ Jesus didn’t do much violence, He was gentle in the physical realm, but violent in the spiritual, through fasting, prayer, and preaching/speaking]

: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. – [ Jesus’s social and political causes are for truth to reign, not for strife and gain.]

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged , till he have set judgment in the earth: – [ Jesus is not in a rush. He wasn’t rushing then, and He’s not now. He knows He won’t fail, and He won’t be discouraged. Its just a matter of time until He executes His decision on every cause, on every case, and every injustice in the earth.]

 and the isles shall wait for his law. – [ Every group of people down to each island community will end up looking to Jesus Christ Himself, to find out what He has to say about their society and community.]

Isaiah 42

BEHOLD GOD’S SERVANT!

Justice comes from beholding Jesus Christ. So if you have a heart for justice in the earth, or you need justice in your own life… look for and expect Jesus Christ.

And if you too are a servant of God, laboring for justice, then BEHOLD how the Chief Servant, Jesus Christ does his justice work. Justice only comes from Beholding Jesus Christ. If you are chosen, elected, supported, empowered, and delighted in by God thru Jesus Christ, then you will have the confidence, patience, and endurance to wait on God, work for God, and receive His judgement based on Truth. If you want to OCCUPY anything… make sure you are Occupying Jesus Christ! He has all true Justice and Judgement under His Authority.
