Prayer journal entry regarding a dream of a riot in Charlotte North Carolina, and a fatal water crises in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Revelation 3:16-20 (New International Version) So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. … be earnest, and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.
Isaiah 55:1 “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without moneyand without cost.Revelation 3:4 ‘But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy.

Once coming in and once going out. I see a common theme that speaks to us about our garments, our mantles, and keeping our garments spotless. Those who clothe themselves with their own ornate and high end coverings will find themselves naked, with out, and their garments spoiled.
1 Peter 5:5 came to me … God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Church and City politics tangling with the mantle of prophetic warning. Wrecking its political self coming in and going out. Those sitting in offices of authority should be standing out until all are accommodated, rather than pushing themselves in, caring nothing for others. While the tables of opportunity are over loaded leaving no room for individual development.
Isaiah 55:1 “Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without moneyand without cost.
These two crisis seemed to occur around the same time frame with each other. We did contact some churches and sent an e-mail off to the city water works and emergency preparedness advocates, along with a couple churches. Since then we have noticed a ministry incorporated a water outreach where water is given to people in financially strapped areas who are most likely not going to be able to respond as well to a crisis.
