Never stop praying for those in authority. Never stop praying for Kings (gatherers of wealth and domains) in the earth. It is a good thing not to join the mob mentality; we come from a more dignified place. We are seated with Him in high places, and we have the mind of Christ. To be influenced by rumors, and the propaganda of political parties, is not our source of truth. We have the source in us, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is the Spirit of all truth. There will be wars and rumors of wars, but we are not swayed by them, God directs our footsteps.
Darkness Will Go Where Darkness Goes
A rise and shine for the light is come … yet gross darkness covers the earth and a great darkness the people … Isaiah 60:1-2</em>
Darkness will go where darkness goes, and light will come out from the shadows. These powerful exchanges will peak in the days and seasons to come. 2011, 2012 and on. We will be awestruck by who and what chooses darkness over light, as some well esteemed christian organization and leaders will turn into the night. On the other hand we will rejoice and be AWE INSPIRED by who we will see rising up, and coming forward towards the fullness of the day. -Kings and Kingdoms shall rise up and come to the brightness of your dawn. Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled … it is the great exchange.
2 Thessalonians 2:16 (New International Version, ©2010)
The Man of Lawlessness
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
