RHEMA 9/26/09  STANDING AS AN INTERCESSOR

 

DREAM:  I approached a prophetic person who had received a word of judgment and I earnestly wanted to know if he had prayed as an intercessor that the judgment would not happen.  I was concerned, not being able to discern if it was second heaven revelation revealing the demonic intent or if it was pure and representing heavenís intent.  I did not want to speak against the Holy Spirit and had no way of discerning the source of what he saw. 

 

HEARD:  My purposes are to make the enemy manifest and to defeat the enemy.

 

Eph 5:8-16 NKJV

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.  12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14 Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."  See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

 

VISIONAn angel came to me and talked to me over my concern about what was coming.  She spoke deep into my heart and I received the Lordís peace about.  But I did not remember what she said when I woke.

 

PONDERINGS:  I was wondering if my question was the Lordís heart approaching us and earnestly asking if when we hear words of judgment do we stand in the gap, that they not happen?

 

Ezek 22:30-31  NKJV

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. 31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads," says the Lord GOD.

STANDING IN THE GAP  9/13/09

Today I had input from 2 different ministries talking about standing in the gap.  I knew the Lord was saying something.

Sep 13 - Real Intercession

 

"And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor."  (Isaiah 59:16)


 

When somebody hurts us, our natural human reaction is to strike back...to ask God to clobber them. But that's not God's way.

I realized that one time when some relatives of mine got robbed. I was praying about the situation and puzzling over it. "Lord," I began to ask, "why did You let that happen? Why didn't You just knock that thief over the head when he tried to do that?"

Suddenly, God enabled me to back up from that situation and look at it with spiritual, instead of just purely natural eyes.

When I did that, I knew the answer to my question almost as quickly as I had asked it. It was because of His mercy. God has great, great mercy. Not just for me and my family but for theirs too.

Think about that next time someone does you wrong. Instead of asking God to knock that person in the head, like I did, consider the fact that--as ornery as he may be--he may well have a grandmother somewhere who's praying for him to be saved. Stop and remember that God loved him enough to die for him, that He's longing to pardon--not punish him.

Then you can begin to pray for him instead of against him, uniting yourself with his grandmother (or anybody else who happens to be praying for him). You can go to the Lord for mercy for him and you can go up against the devil on his behalf. That's real intercession and it throws the forces of darkness into total confusion. They have absolutely no defense against it.

The Lord is looking for people who are bold enough, committed enough to do that. Dare to be one of them. When you're tempted to clobber somebody, dare to change his life instead.

Therefore He said that He would destroy them,  Had not Moses His chosen one stood before Him in the breach,  To turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them.   

 

Isa 50:1-2  NKJV

For your iniquities you have sold yourselves,  And for your transgressions your mother has been put away.   2 Why, when I came, was there no man?  Why, when I called, was there none to answer?  Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem?  Or have I no power to deliver?   

 

Isa 64:7  NKJV

And there is no one who calls on Your name,  Who stirs himself up to take hold of You;  For You have hidden Your face from us,  And have consumed us because of our iniquities.  

 

Isa 59:15-16 NKJV

Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him.

 

Jer 5:1-2  NKJV

Run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem;  See now and know;  And seek in her open places   If you can find a man,  If there is anyone who executes judgment,  Who seeks the truth,  And I will pardon her.   2 Though they say, 'As the LORD lives,'  Surely they swear falsely."  

 

Ezek 22:30-31  NKJV

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. 31 Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads," says the Lord GOD.
