TIME TO STAND!

(Ver 1.1) In the last blog posted before the election of Nov 3 in the United States, I had a short message asking Christians with faith to “Pray, Vote and Stand for Life”.  Since this day has come and gone and it seems like God has not answered our prayers (to many people), I wanted to come to you again to say “it is not over”.  Do you need to hear a message from the LORD to encourage you today? Do you believe it is over?  Today is His reminder that we are now in the third phase of God’s design for us praying and receiving our answers. This 3rd phase is called “the Stand”.  God is saying “Through faith and patience we inherit His promises” (Heb 6:12). I believe God is NOT DONE!  God is hardly ever early, never late, but will always deliver the answer on His perfect time schedule, if we do not give up.

I believe that God has permitted this delay period for His divine purposes.  First, to teach us to never give up.   And second, to expose the evil plans of Satan in the United States of America.  The last four years has shown us an increased level of evil like I have never seen before in my lifetime.  If you have not been able to see this occurring, please pray and ask God to open your eyes.   It is so obvious that when you see it you will wonder how you could have ever missed it.

The act of “standing” simply means to not be moved by what the circumstances of what the enemy looks like around you.  “To Stand” literally means to continue to “face down” your enemy and NOT to turn and run away from them like a coward.  Running is what Satan is supposed to be doing from us, according to James 4:7. God wants His people to believe that He heard their prayers, is able to answer and that He answered us even when it does not look like that it is possible.  Wow!  That is called having faith and confidence in Him instead of what we see with our eyes or hear with our ears. 

Remember Daniel prayed to God and God sent the answer immediately but to Daniel’s perspective the answer did not arrive for 21 days because of an unseen spiritual warfare that was occurring in the spiritual realm.  That is exactly what is taking place in our election.  I believe Christians forget that there is still a devil and that he is doing everything possible to resist the plans of God from coming to pass. 

Satan has had control of our Jezebel led false-prophet media for many years.  So please do not listen to them or believe anything that they say.  I estimate that most of the news from the mass majority of worldly media is at least 90% biased against real truth.  There appears to be a hidden spirit of witchcraft controlling the news feed with identical talking points to fuel a hidden demonic agenda of brainwashing and deception.  From what limited views that I have heard from these sources, I have learned that whatever the news is promoting in mass, that is usually what the other side is guilty of and the opposite of what is actually true.

STAND

Let us get into our first Bible verse on “Standing” and it comes from the book of Ephesians.  In this context God describes the spiritual battle of warfare that Christians are in.  We are told that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world.   God also said that our weapons are not carnal or natural.  No, our weapons are primarily exercising our authority in prayer and praising God for the answer.  Our spiritual enemies are not going to give in without a fight to test our stand of faith.  The enemies of God and His church are defeated but still must be put under our feet in order to stand (Rom 16:20).  I claim it is time for this to happen right now.  Let us read our first verse:

Eph 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to STAND.

We are in this position of warfare because the days we are living are certainly evil.  But Jesus is still LORD and we are His body on the earth with the authority to resist the evil (Luk 10:19, Jas 4:7).   This means we must “Stand” strong and not allow our faith to waiver because of any delay in His justice or righteousness.  We live in an instant microwave it and eat it up NOW world.  If there is ever any delay, we could easily think we are in trouble, but we must still believe that God has heard and answered us.  We need to be more like a Daniel and keep praying in faith until the answer comes.  Daniel was very confident and persistent.  He knew that God is working whether he saw Him working or not for many days.  Even though Daniel did not see it, things were happening in the unseen spiritual realm.  The victory must be won in the spiritual realm before it is ever manifested in the physical realm.   

God is telling His people today to guard our gates. Don’t allow the enemy an access to enter into our minds to defeat us. These human gates are our eyes, our ears and our mouth. When we hear or see evil reports, they cause many to move into fear, worry, and doubt. Then when some one speaks that fear out of their mouth it allows Satan to bring it to pass. Remember this lesson from the Old Testament. There were 12 spies sent into the Promised Land. Only two spies named Joshua and Caleb brought back a “Good” report that was designed by God to prophesy and produce faith in the rest of the nation. But there were these other false and fake media spies that came back with the “Evil” report and Satan filled their mouth with the majority report of “defeat”. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? The majority of the nation is buying into the majority opinion of defeat. As Christ followers we do not have to do that. We can choose to follow CHRIST and LIFE and see the glory of God wipe out our spiritual unseen enemies placing them under our feet. That is my encouragement for all of my readers. Please “STAND” for “LIFE” unwavering in your faith. What happens if we do this? Here is another verse about standing and believing God:

Exo 14:13  And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, STAND still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 

This is a Word from God for such a time as this.  That which has been is that which shall be again (Ecc 1;9), but this time in the church age, we have the opportunity to enter into our Promised Land in victory.  Stand and watch the hand of the LORD expose the corruption, the fake voting process, the lies, the voter fraud, votes of the dead, the illegal and those that were unable to vote fairly.  Watch how it is exposed how easy it was for Satan to try to steal an election using a false fear agenda from a pandemic.   This year has been planned and coordinated by Satan, but this will be exposed in full and the victory will be the LORD’S.

If you are offended by this message, that is very sad to me and I believe to God. Joshua and Caleb were the only two with a good report that entered into the promised land of that generation. Please do not be a participant with the majority of the unsaved world that are dying in the wilderness and not entering into what God had already given to us by faith. Whose report will YOU believe? As for me and my house we will believe the report of the LORD. God is not done! Remember, if God is for us and life, who can be against us (Rom 8:31). Believe Him and see the salvation of the LORD for the voiceless unborn. Thank you and God bless you.

  1. (I tried to submit this once, and had to reset my password, so forgive me if it double-posts.)

    Daniel 3:16 – Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

    I went to bed the night of the election thinking President Trump had won. Wednesday morning when I saw Biden had gained 153K votes in Michigan (is there a vote fairy?) I knew in my heart the left had coordinated their twisted efforts well and at that moment realized Trump would not keep his position over our nation.

    This is NOT because I don’t believe God can turn this around if it’s His will to do so. It’s because many Americans who should have stood firmly for Trump while he endured so much persecution did not. We should have gathered in large demonstrations demanding the sham impeachment was stopped, but didn’t. We had a chance in the 2018 elections to vote out many republicans who showed their true colors not supporting our president. Or vote out liberals who burn with hatred towards him and also for those of us who believe. Instead they were re-elected keeping their seats/offices.

    On top of that, there were millions of mail in ballot applications sent out that were never requested. Countless numbers to incorrect addresses or with incorrect return labels. No one demanded en masse this twisted practice stop immediately. It opened the door for exactly what Trump predicted. Massive mail in voter fraud. 😦 As the parable of the dishonest manager, they devised a way to get exactly what they wanted, and we cannot deny they planned well.

    So, my personal belief is we are reaping what was sown. Like the farmer who planted good seed only to have someone throw bad seeds into his field, we have to wait for “harvest time” so these “bad seeds” that grew into weeds can be plucked out.

    Do I hope I’m wrong and Trump remains 4 more years? YES! Am I holding my breath? No. What I do know and have learned over the past couple years after losing my husband and having to re-examine my own faith (as C. S. Lewis once said, it was a house of cards) is that my God will, and has been, supplying ALL my needs. Regardless who presides over this nation He will continue to do so.

    Let’s not forget what Jesus said to Pilot. “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” God will determine the outcome, and either way those who love and trust Him will be OK whether we are delivered now on this earth, or suffer on this earth before going to be with Him.

    Thank you for your blog and reading my humble opinion. Brenda in Virginia

    • Thank you sister for reading and sharing your comments. I’m sorry for you loss of your husband. God is Good no matter what Satan is trying to do to us, our nation and our family. But, my faith is very strong that my President Donald J Trump will be reelected for a second term according to what He has spoken through the majority of prophets that are still strongly standing in agreement. I still remember Moses at the red sea with the Egyptian army near to them. Everything looked hopeless, everyone thought they were all finished and about to die, but GOD had a different agenda. Nothing is impossible with God! Stand and watch and see the deliverance of the Almighty. God Bless you. Bro Ron

      • I truly hope I am wrong and you are correct sir. Interesting you used Moses and the red sea as an example. Watched a bunch of videos on the John 10:10 site just yesterday and one centered on the Exodus of the children of Israel and their escape over dry land through the parted waters of the Red Sea! In the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses…I’ll gladly eat TWO of my hats if what you say comes to be. Bless you too! Brenda

  3. Thankyou, very good. and I see that you are a patient man. This is for the people that complain about how many years people have been in there SITS, just one question WHO puts those people in THEIR SITS? that is the reason Presidents have TERMS cause people just kept wanting to vote the same one IN. And until a LAW is passed to limit the terms of the senate and house those people will stay in till they become evil, if they are not evil when you vote them in. So don’t blame GOD for the mess we have made of His beautiful creation. Start by not letting them sever more than 2 terms, YOU have the power. God said WE are a kingdom of priests and as priest our responsibility is to rule by prayer, so either we are lousy prayers or we aren’t praying. agape thanks always enjoy your posts

  4. Amen my brother! Thank you for this word of encouragement. Thank you for your obedience to our Lord in using this gift God has given you. The Lord revealed to me recently that He is exposing the darkness and corruption that has gained a stronghold in our nation. His people had fallen asleep and allowed the enemy to sow evil seeds in His field (..but while men were sleeping, the enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and left. Matt 13:25). We had fallen asleep as though their was nothing we could do. We are His body, His presence on the earth (..as He is so are we in this world. 1 John 4:17). We have been equipped and are commissioned to stand against the strongholds of darkness (2 Cor 10:4). God is Light…there is no darkness in Him. He will expose this corruption and deceit that tries to hide in every dark corner. We are His ambassadors on earth. My beloved brothers and sisters, ask yourselves, why did our Lord pose the question: …when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8). Yes, God is in control, but we must STAND in faith and use the power that He has given us to usher in His will on the face of the earth. God instructed us to pray for those in authority. Pray for what? Why? If leaders and authorities are imposing wickedness on the nation and the world, we are to pray against the powers of darkness that hold these leaders and authorities in their power. This is so that we can live…peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness (1 Tim 2:2). God is at work in ALL matters of life to establish the victory that our Lord Jesus purchased 2000 years ago (Rev 11:15). May His love, peace, and hope be on all who call on the Name of our Lord.

  5. Amen, wonderful and encouraging as always brother. God bless you. We are almost home, yes the enemy may appear to be winning because he will be allowed to do his worst yet, so that we will understand how sinful and evil sin is..after the prophesied upheavals and turmoils are fulfilled, including National Sunday Law; persecution of the saints; reign of the man of sin, Stan’s seed; Satan’s counterfeit appearance and mark of the beast; little time of trouble; great time of trouble, the 7 last plagues fall Christ will come and we will enter the millenium and finally the holy city will descend…Let us hold fast; we are almost there soon to collect our crown.

  6. Don’t write off God – He answers all prayers. Since you believe you didn’t get the outcome you want – you think God is not answering your prayer. Really? “His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts are not our thoughts…” Ultimately, God decides who leads this nation. And each of us, can continue to advance the Kingdom by leading others to God, especially those who are having children. Individually – we can stop the scourge of abortion, drug abuse, etc… God Bless

  10. I love your blog Agapegeek. Only I don’t agree that anyone who sits in that seat of POTUS is good. The Bible tells us in Ephesians that we war not against flesh and blood but spiritual wickedness in high places. We must be aware that the USA is not exempt from that verse. Anyone in a higher power like that must have shaken hands with the enemy. Was it not Jesus who satan tempted asking Him to bow down and worship him and he’ll give Him power over the land?
    Let us also not be blind to the fact that many of the people who are currently sitting in their seats have been there for years. They know each other very well. It’s not time to divide us based on what political affiliation we may be apart of, the only affiliation that matters is the Kingdom of God. No one should be fooled into thinking their party is best over anyone’s or has the best interests for everyone. That is simply not true and clear for everyone to see. We are the children of God. If we want to see change, as you stated, we have to stand for holiness, we have to stand for righteousness. We have to be that light. Not expect someone else to carry it for us.
    I believe God wills who ever He wants in any position. He is in control forever, regardless of what it may seem like. I pray that our hearts and minds are prepared, and that we are strengthened spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.

    • The Lord said in Matthew 7:16:
      “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?”
      Look at POTUS fruits: (Pro Life and more!)
      Throughout the scriptures you find the Lord using men like Noah, Moses, King David, Sampson, Israel, the Apostles, and constantly failing and doubting the Lord. But yet, the Lord accomplished His plan, and continues, as we speak, to accomplish this part of history.
      BTW: Thank you Agapegeek for your wonderful and insightful studies. I’ve been blessed throughout the years. May the Lord continue to bless you, our Christian families, and this nation.
