Speak Out and Be of Good Courage
I was standing near the window in my kitchen thinking about this election. I often do this as I begin to pray. I have no passion to endorse a candidate, just to lift up Jesus over each one running. I was starting to pray when I heard the Lord. I could feel His presence coming in strong. I felt tears in my eyes, begging Him to come closer. I was being moved to pray for our beloved nation.
The Lord began to speak, "Therein, I love your love for this nation. I am calling you to speak out and be of good courage."
I began to break. I just wept. Suddenly, I saw an angel with a huge sword. He was placing it across the nation...from east to west. Instantly, I could feel my spirit moving up into the atmosphere of Heaven. My heart was pounding with excitement and wonder. This angel was showing me something. I was waiting for the revelation.
I knew that a sword was two-fold: Word and weapon. The atmosphere rumbled. I heard Him speak. Echoing through me, He spoke, "I am reviving My Word! My Word will be preached. It will not relent; it is moving! My Word is life. I am moving My Holy Writ across this nation with a revival of Word preachers. These preachers will not hold back. I will cause them to cry out in open places, no longer in secret. They will be strong and willing to stand the test of some persecution. And they will win; many hearts will return to Me!"

I was crying out, "Come, Lord Jesus! Come and touch the land!" when suddenly the place was still. He was near...
Then He spoke with the most compassionate sound, yet powerful enough to make one shudder at its strength. "I am calling the Christian to vote in America. I am calling the seniors to come out. I am calling the veterans to stand up. I am calling for the gathering angels to bring My Body of Believers together. (Mark 13:27 "And He will send His angels and gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.")
"In one accord they will stand. Yes, shoulder to shoulder, side by side, they will take up a defense against the wickedness that has crept in. Have I not said Roe v. Wade will be stopped? Now look at the states; they are turning back the tide. It is because you prayed! Now I am asking you to act. Act!
"The nation stands in front of you. Many are waiting for you to manifest your faith and strength in numbers. Nations all across the earth are watching America. O America, I have a weapon. A weapon that has been in waiting. It is My Church. It is YOU. Do not hold back; cry aloud! I am listening to every word. I am giving you opportunity now to be!
"Three Keys I Shall Release to You. More When the Prophets Speak"
"1. A Key of Reconciliation amongst the brethren. Yes, your brothers and sisters have fought hard against each other. I ask you now stop, repent, and realize it has been the dark enemy of the soul that has caused this division. I say to you now: Make it stop. Reconcile. If they do not receive you, shake off that dust in love and move on. (Matthew 10:14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet).
"2. A Key of Honor. Yes, honor. Begin to show honor to leaders, and you will be received by those in various positions – those who make the changes. I'm calling for the faithful to be heard in the halls and private chambers of government and education and media. When honor is shown, it will open a door no man can shut. Develop a culture of TRUE honor, and watch Me move.
"3. A Key of Position. Know your position. Do you remember in this Kingdom where you are seated? Where are you looking? Where are you waiting? From what position do you take your position? (Ephesians 2:6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.) Do not take your stand by anothers opinion. No, this is not the way to position yourself. Take your stand in two places: Heaven invading earth.
A. You are seated with Me, close to Me, near our Father...Come up higher. Look up!
B. Dust off the Holy Writ sitting on many shelves. I am breathing on the written Word like I have done in the past, for in it you will find your personal keys to being successful in turning the people back to Me."
Tearfully now, He said, "Yet, I have a warning...a caution...a word for you: Take heed."
Mark 4:24 And He said unto them, "Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given."
"I say now to you, because I love you, do not walk in condemnation. Deliver My message with extreme passion and love, and I will send a holy conviction. This conviction will melt hard hearts. Let Me do this. Be My extension. Be My ambassador. Be in Me, and I will use you for this nation," says the Lord.
Scripture of Reference:
Isaiah 58:1-9 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of Me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God."Wherefore have we fasted," say they, "and Thou seest not?
Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and Thou takest no knowledge?"Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. Is it such a fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord? Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and He shall say, "Here I am." If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity...
Let's Pray: O dear Lord, all I can say is this: Forgive me. Position me. And I quote You: Here am I, Lord, send me. In Jesus' name, amen.
