If My People Who Are Called 

OUR NATION IS IN TROUBLE! 
Where is THE CALLED? 

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (II Chronicles 7:14) 

God is listening for the voice of “The Called”. His ears are attentive to their cry…. 

God says, “My people have complained, but they have not truly prayed!” 

Only “the called” will be able to touch God’s heart and cause him to incline His ear once more. “They” only can initiate true change in the world. Many people are speaking but only certain, chosen of God, can sincerely reach Him. “My people” denotes a specific and certain type of people God is listening for and to; yet truly the ones he is listening for are not the ones that are speaking! 

YOU have been called to prayer as your first assignment, especially for this nation and country. Seek the Kingdom of God, first! Make God happy, and in turn we shall be happy! Many of us have been blissfully carried away as into captivity by the lust of this world. God has caused the seasons to turn and the times to become evil even in the fact to cause His people to cry out to Him. Yes there is oppression in the land, depression, obsession, and much more! Yet, God stipulates that the people called by “ My Name”, for such a time as this, can turn my heart and save the land. It doesn’t take many, but the right (chosen) ones! You have been chosen by God. 

If my people, whom I created and called for such a time as this, would humble themselves…We have become exalted and high-minded even within ourselves to think that God should just change the world without praying and repenting….We have left the true God of our Fathers and became a vile and wicked nation…..But the chosen, elect of God have power with God to touch His heart and turn it; even to cause Him to repent of the evil concerning us as a entire nation. 

There are many people praying… but to whom or what? 
The charge is given to the true believers. It is not about the world but about “The Called!” Out of all the people that could pray… even the stranger or foreign captive…God solicits the heart of His people and asks us to turn back to Him. It is not that He doesn’t care about everyone…But WE have become His heart! 
DO YOU KNOW HOW IT REALLY FEELS TO HAVE A BROKEN HEART? 

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, hat we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not because it knew him not, Beloved now are we the sons of God…” I John 3:1,2a KJV 

YOU HAVE BEEN ADOPTED INTO THE ROYAL FAMILY AS A SON, THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST… 

NOW ZION, WHAT IS WRONG? PUT ON YOUR STRENGTH AND PUT AWAY THE SOILED GARMENTS. YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A GARMENT OF PRAISE…WALK IN YOUR GARMENT AND USE THE POWER GOD HAS GIVEN THEE AS HEIRS UNTO THE THRONE. 

We have been called for this hour and placed as watchmen on the wall and to the gate; and we are failing to report what we see/hear to God. He desires to heal the land and forgive our sins…but we fail to turn and repent in humbleness…Yet we wonder with all the people who proclaim liberty and profess hope….Why is there only a few elect that God will hear? How can such a great nation with so many places to worship be yet so troubled or powerless with few changes; even fighting for its identity as a nation to worship freely their God. 

WE HAVEN’T REALLY GOTTEN INTO POSITION AND TO THE HEART OF GOD! HE IS WAITING FAITHFULLY ON US…WITH HIS ARM STRETCHED OPEN STILL. Let us rush to God before it is too late! Seek Him early and seek Him 
NOW! For He will not be ignored without consequence…We as the called, know it is destruction determined for the ungodly and the nation that forgets God. WHY DO WE YET TEMPT THE LORD OUR GOD? 

UNTO OUR NATION… 

But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. 
Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life; 
Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west. I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; 
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. 
Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am He: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. (Isaiah 43:1,4-7,10 KJV) 

Only NOW, 

If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (II Chronicles 7:14 KJV)

When At First You Don't Succeed 

"WHEN AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED" 

Judah of Israel was chosen by God to fight against their brethren, Benjamin; for Gibeah of Benjamin had committed a great sin. (Judges 20:4-6 KJV) Israel continued to war, but failed miserably, twice. But this failure made the enemy grow over confident and comfortable. It wasn't until the third time, after devising a strategy, that God gave their enemies into their hand! Victory was theirs! Re-work your plan. The fight you are battling may even be from family members. You may have failed in the past at several business ventures; but don't be afraid to start all over again! If God be for you... who can be against you? God is pruning and preparing you for the mission. Your success is often determined by your failure. God has granted you experience. You're still here to show forth His glory. You now know the things to avoid. Just remember Israel consulted God all three times; yet it wasn't until the 3rd time, that they succeeded. It may seem like the enemy is winning, but he is being deceived by his own delusions. Things are not always what they seem! Always acknowledge God first, even through failures; and persevere. Be relentless! God wants to establish you and His beauty upon the works of your hand. This time, cast your net deeper into the sea; for it shall bring forth in prosperity. It's coming together for you!

Finish The Prayer 

After long await, I wandered what happened all my life...then I was divinely visited and this was my lesson... Daniel had been praying and receiving answers from God concerning his daily life and Israel’s future. Prior to Daniel ch.10, Gabriel had delivered messages of understanding and interpretation to Daniel. It wasn’t until Daniel Ch.10, that we see an arrival of the man clothed in linen strengthened Daniel twice to receive, hear and then speak. There were others with Daniel, however, they hid themselves and ran from the power and presence of God. *Sometimes the power of your blessings are too strong for others. But note, it never was for them….Verse 12 of ch.10 denotes strictly that the word of the Lord stated “from the moment you prayed (set your heart and mind to understand) we heard and have come because of your words (prayer). He also states, that he was resisted or delayed by the Prince of Persia and Michael had to help him and He had left Michael fighting and must return to the battle to fight. He gave Daniel all that he asked for and more…. The revelation consists of two parts…The celestial battle which rages and the Hellenistic wars on the human plane…The earthly conflict reflect the celestial battle. Each nation is represented by one prince, or angel, and Israel’s patron angel is Michael. This shows the conflict of Nations and Heavenly Powers, even regional principalities, thrones and kingdoms. We have a fighting angel…NOTE: He said to Daniel, 10ch verse 21…There is one who contends with these princes (principalities)---Michael “your” prince. Daniel had been “fasting” or in mourning…but he did not do as traditionally as normal…he did not anoint his head or wash his face for 21 days…..Note: This is the same time that ch10:13 the other being states it took to get the blessing of interpretation to Daniel. It could be assumed this visitation was a little more powerful and different from the visit of Gabriel in the chapters prior. This chapter gives great description of the man clothed in linen. Daniel references still my lord…This vision and visitation was much powerful and required the assistance of Michael the archangel. Daniel was much older now and had served under several kings; however, the one desire remained was to know about the seventy years exile determined for Israel as spoken by Jeremiah the prophet. Daniel had lived through many of those years but yet to know or understand the visions and time of the revelations. This puzzled him and the more he seen…the more troubled he became because he knew God answered his prayers…and the ONE thing managed to grieve him (his spirit)….therefore the scripture reads in some interpretation….Daniel was in mourning and we say fasting…But I dare submit to you that Daniel was more disturbed because he had not gotten an answer from God and was used to hearing from God. He is now old (possibly along 85yrs of age) and is still waiting on an answer. Have you ever wanted or missed the one thing you’ve been praying on or for…it seems to allude you? Daniel mourned (almost as to pout) as not to receive and answer…..Thus the message is given at the first “Daniel we heard you from the moment you prayed and the word was sent out…but it took 21 days to get to you and I had to have help form Michael to do that….” “I left Michael fighting and must return back to the battle…but while I am here…I will tell you more because I am here because of your words” If this being clothed in white linen received help from Michael….what about you and I? He stressed that Michael is “your” prince and He will rise up to fight for Israel… God is listening for YOUR words and is come….Finish the prayer and command the atmosphere of the regional principalities, thrones and kingdoms….YOU have a Prince and champion ready to fight for YOU! Pray for those connected to the blessing of God…they have been hindered by the enemy…The same amount of time Daniel didn’t anoint his head or pray in the normal way as usual was the same amount of days specifically stated by the man clothed in linen. Daniels prayers changed….However, it wasn’t that he wasn’t praying, He didn’t finish the prayer… Ask God to touch, bless and keep those connected to the blessings of God. Pray that his mercies and his hand of protection watches over them keeping them from hurt harm and danger and delivering them from evil; even in the hour of temptation. Bless them coming in and going out this time and forevermore. Let them know that you are God, even in the midst of their circumstances and that YOU are God alone; and that I am YOUR servant (so they will recognize you when they see you). God of Michael the archangel…Plead my cause of God with them that strive with me and fight against those that fight against me…Take hold of shield and buckler and fight (stand) for me! In Jesus Name… The enemy tries to throw a facade or disguise himself as light while frustrating the purpose of the saints. He has had his hand on the doorknob of success of God’s people…making it hard to go through or making it seem like it wasn’t God or for them…thus causing doubt and fear; Ultimately, he made some change their paths prematurely or give up without a fight. Therefore, we miss others as we are moving on or out of position, as (at the same time) those sent to be a blessing, have been attacked and frustrated so…that they are held up and miss each other. Thus, we figure or think that God was not in the plan or in the plan as a sign to forfeit (forgo) the idea and concept. The only way the enemy can win is when we become overwhelmed and frustrated with fear and doubt causing us to hand over the blessing or close the door on success and ideas. We become to frustrated with the path and ultimately say “maybe this isn’t it or the pathway I should take…..God is not concerned as much with the path as he is your direction. Man chooses his path but God directs his footsteps. It is in the going or doing that God finds us…God never called anyone stagnant! Just do something! In Revelation to the church of Philadelphia…he states I placed before you an open door that no one can clothes…you have a little power…….Why does he say this? The door for access is always open and they just need to use the little power they have to kick it open….He has the key that no one can stop you…He has the Key of David to open doors no man can close and to close doors no man can open! This is The Lord of Hosts at our access-- available to assist us because of obedience. It was never about the door or path, but about the journey, the way or direction God wants us to go through….but know the Doors are open and you can go through….The enemy just made it look hard or complicated (frustrated) the purpose. Be relentless and don’t give up…He can’t take the blessing unless you give it up. The enemy is accusing the brethren daily…This punk is saying, “if you let me frustrate them enough, I bet you they will curse you, leave you (they only serve you because of what you give them)…let me torment the people connected to them since I can’t have them…I bet you they will turn on you! AS in Job, after God began to rebuke Job (Job ch.42), he gained increase understanding like Daniel and began to pray for his friends after receiving instruction by God to do so….HIS FRIENDS WERE CONNECTED TO HIS BLESSING…God told his friends to give Job an earring of gold and Job prayed for his friends….NOTE: God talked to Job (listened for his voice and told him to pray) and then God spoke to his friends; and, Job’s captivity turned when he prayed for those connected to the blessing of God. Daniel was encouraged to continue in prayer although he did not understand everything…BUT WE DO KNOW THAT THE MESSENGER SOLICITED HELP FROM MICHAEL! If HE needed help,….what about us on the human plane? Finish the Prayer! It both releases the hidden, unseen blessings which God has determined in store or awaits you….Release the Lord and his angelic hosts to work on your behalf. However, they await your words! Finish the prayer!

Waiting On the Blessing 

When waiting on a blessing...why does the wait seem long and the wrestle, longer? Jacob wrestled with an angel (Penuel) and came out with a blessing but the "scar" was there as a reminder...Getting what you desire does come with a cost!
