Watchmen On the Wall

1 Tim 3:1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO BRING OUR NATION BACK TO GOD?

2 Chr 7:14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Eze. 22:30 “And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.” 

What Can We Do To Repair The Spiritual Wall Around Our Nation?

 

    We must come to our spiritual senses.

 

We have ignored His Word.  We have grieved His Spirit.  We have mocked His Son.

The source of all our drifting away from God is our preoccupation with self and unconcern for our neighbor.

 

We must turn our hearts away from the distractions and back to the God.

 

         We must start to repair those gaps.

 

Those gaps are in our relationships with each other:  family gaps, racial gaps, gender gaps, political gaps, generational gaps.

We have to ask God to forgive the gaps between us and reach out the olive branch of repentance, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

         We must devote ourselves to returning to God.

 

When Nehemiah built the wall around Jerusalem, he called everyone to take a section.

Your “section” is your street, your neighborhood, your city, and state in America.

Matt 9:35 Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.

36 Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

 

We can pray and call out to God to visit America again.

Take prayer responsibility for our neck of the woods, our section of the wall.

Isaiah 62:6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;

All day and all night they will never keep silent.  You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; And give Him no rest until He establishes And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

 

·         We must pray together right now.

 

Press and pray with us the next 37 days until the end of October.  This is a 40 day plan for focused, “gap-filling” prayer.
