The Lord is truly with us, Heartdwellers.
We are a very small support group for Heartdwellers, but five or more of us have been going through hellish warfare, intercessory prayer for the nations and on the edge of sudden, life-threatening illnesses that manifested and then let up, and manifested again and let up, over and over again for about a week. And I mean life-threatening illnesses. We have been praying and repenting for the world and if our little handful has been doing this, imagine how many around the world are also doing it.
And today we have turned a corner. The Lord has said that as long as prayer, fasting and repentance is on the schedule daily, we can continue moving forward without everything around us being nuked.
This is conditional: if prayer and repentance continue, so do we continue - so do our children and grandchildren continue and still have another chance at repentance and coming to the Lord. So does the world continue. And change is coming to the world, change for the better. But if we slack off, things could go south overnight. So, press in, dear ones. Press in.
Today, my worship time was extraordinarily sweet as we danced in a large formal ballroom. Jesus looked so very real, and so much like the portrait He is painting through me. (Which is almost done, by the way.) Catching glimpses of His presence, He looked and felt so real, I was amazed to look into His eyes that were beaming with love that took my breath away.
How Precious, how Beautiful, and how Excellent is Your love, Lord. Thank you for the most beautiful time. How wonderful is Your love! Like a fine wine whose flavor never fades; like living waters that immerse you in Heaven! How sweet is Your company and how extraordinary that You love me this way.
Jesus, Jesus... to worship You is such a privilege such an extraordinary privilege. Oh, Lord, be with those whose faith is being repressed. Please, be with those. When I said that, I was thinking of Russia and the current law that had been passed.
"Paranoia is a daily cloud that descends on people who live in this kind of environment. They never know who is watching or who will report them. Communism is so terribly repressive, and taking away a man's freedom to worship Me is a serious offense before Heaven."
And I know that communism supposedly has fallen in Russia. But I also know that there continues to be serious repression there. It's still alive, in fact it's spread all over the world.
"People who make these laws have very little spiritual understanding. It will not snuff out the evangelicals; rather it will cause them to blossom. I have not advised this move, obviously, and My hope was that these different faiths could co-exist without turmoil. But herein is the problem, not only in Russia, but all over the world.
"There has always been an underground church in Russia, since communism was installed. There have always been believers who met in the forest, and now will be no different. Even when Russia was supposedly free of this, it still went on, because of jealousy and in-fighting. You have seen how brutal people can be when they don't approve of your faith: the accusations without cause, without substance, without sense. I do not want to speak here of the punishment of those who repress the faith of others, but know that it is severe.
"Rather, I want to talk about the measures I will take to offset this evil. Dreams and visions, visitations and encounters with Me will replace the approval of men. This is the substance of the faith, Clare. Belief in Me, in Who I am - a personal and affectionate relationship without losing respect or the fear of God. I cultivate this in the souls that cry out for Me, whether they be Muslim or Orthodox. I answer the deepest needs of every man, woman and child and need not the approval of men.
"It is different in your country... so far - although that will be changing. Not in Mr. Trump's presidency, but despots that will come after him."
I was a little surprised when He said that, because He hasn't spoken of him winning the Presidency.
"Yes, the Christian leaders of this country have planted themselves around his candidacy, his nomination and his election. No matter how hard the enemy tries to stop him, as long as prayers are being cried out for him, I will uphold and advance him.
"You will meet with scorn and contempt from people for your stance, but understand: they have scales on their eyes and are blinded to the reality of the Satanic government they have voted in."
Wow, Lord, those are pretty strong words about the government being Satanic.
"I intend to change that, Clare. I intend to put this man in office and pull down the rotten structure that has eroded the rights of all American people. But I will need a lot of prayer and sacrifice...fast offerings in order to accomplish this. And you cannot afford to fall into complacency for one minute, or the game is over.
"So, I am calling you, My People, to arm yourselves with patience and fight the good fight. I am on the side of what is right."
Some of you, guys, have complained that Jesus never got involved in politics, and that has been my stance until Donald Trump became a candidate. I deliberately ignored the Scriptures that advise us to take responsibility for who is elected. I was lazy and I didn't want to bother to discern these things. But I must say, the Lord also told me not to get involved, and I'd read some books and knew that there was a lot of corruption. And it's six of one, half a dozen of the other - it's like it didn't matter who you elected. They all bowed to the ruling Elite.
But now, this is different - we have a chance at restoration. Here are a couple of Scriptures that I found to encourage us to be a prayerful part of our government.
I Timothy 2:2-4
I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
That they may offer acceptable sacrifices to the God of heaven and pray for the life of the king and his sons.
'Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.'
"There is a still small voice that comes to legislators in private that warns them they are going in the wrong direction. I get their attention, but the voice of the ruling party is much louder. And unless they have great integrity, they snuff out their conscience and do what they are told. This is what you now have in your Congress and Senate. This is the result of carelessness and preoccupation with position and wealth.
"I aim to change that, so that men and women who have participated in writing certain laws will look back on their mistakes and correct them. This is America's only hope. The governing bodies must cooperate with the president, and the people must pay attention to who they elect into those positions.
"Mr. Trump has quite a job before him. But I am with him and he will not fail, at least in My eyes. Others will disagree, but in the long run, they will see the wisdom in his moves. The greatest obstacle he will face, besides the threat of assassination, are the corrupt elected officials. But even there, I will give him an advantage. There are so-called 'closet' Christians who hate what's been done to this country and they will begin to stand up and make their voice count."
But Lord, what about all these cataclysms that we are expecting?
"But as I said earlier, everything depends on the prayers of the people."
Forgive me, Lord, but certain people have said that none of these calamities would happen. Were they speaking Your voice or their own?
"When a nation repents, when a world repents, that is when Mercy is given. You have not prophesied falsely, you have been a voice crying in the wilderness, 'Repent and prepare the way of the Lord'. It is this unanimous voice that has cried out and been heard by My Father. Repentance ALWAYS brings Mercy. Always.
"There are a few who believed this would happen and foresaw the delay. There are many who didn't want to hear anything negative, so they blocked out My messengers, pretending they were in error. That is not My way. Ignorance is never My way. Ignorance is never Bliss, it is disastrous.
"But enough have woken up and seen the writing on the wall that there is at least continuing prayers and repentance forestalling judgment. As long as these prayers and petitions and acts of repentance are being offered, the judgment will be delayed.
"Different nations will be judged with natural calamities, visited by extreme weather conditions and other natural events that will get their attention.
"The bottom line? Everything is in My hands, Clare. Everything. Nothing will be permitted that I have not allowed."
How sure is the delay of the judgment?
I was accusing myself and afraid of saying anything definitive, in case I wasn't hearing the Lord and this really hurt Him.
"There are still souls in this world that have the lion's share of a cross to carry and more are joining their ranks everyday as it becomes obvious that prayer is working. I know you are trying to be faithful without leaving yourself a back door. But that isn't necessary, Clare. What I have said is the simple truth; no need to cover for anyone or anything.
"Prayer and repentance have triumphed for now. Continue on. My precious Heartdwellers, lift your cross, carry it with dignity, move forward with plans and do not be dismayed by doom and gloom from other sources. I am telling you all: repentance - as long as it continues at this rate - has made the decisive difference. If that should change, you'll know about it.
"Stand against wickedness. Support what is good. Do not waste time on this story and that story, rather get busy with your contribution so that 'My Kingdom may come, My will may be done on this Earth, as it is in Heaven."
"Come to Me if this is just too much to handle and I will help you get your bearings, as well as arm you with new graces and even callings. Continue to pray for Mr. Trump and his family. Continue to cover them and cry out to Me for protection and mercy.
"Continue to pray for Russia, China, North Korea and other great countries. And please do not grow weary with the crosses I send you. Carry them, knowing that they are indeed making a tremendous difference.
"I will comfort you, Dear Ones. I will comfort you and give you a new life. Come to Me."
