Like you, my spirit is grieved with the evil that took place this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, in regards to the demonic demonstration of hate and violence of the white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK. It's times like these that it is difficult to find words to express the absolute disgust I have for Satan and all of his wicked works against the human race. But I know, as Christians, we must rally together in the name of the Lord, take a stand, pray for a sovereign move of the Spirit and speak up.

I read in the Book of Revelation 6:3-4 where it says concerning the last days, "When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, 'Come and see.' Then another horse that was red went forth. Power was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth, causing people to kill one another. Then a great sword was given to him." I am reading these passages from the Scriptures, seeing these prophecies coming to pass, knowing that hate will be increasing and the world will be growing darker spiritually. And yet I find myself asking Father God, "What do we do?"

And what I continue to hear Him say to us is to shine our light into the darkness. Be not afraid of what they may say or what they may do to the physical body, but be more concerned for the salvation of others. We are to be mindful of the times, fully aware of the lateness of the hour in these last days. Speak the truth, not from a heart filled with bitterness and revenge, but speak it in love and remember vengeance belongs to the Lord. We are not to bend to the sinful ways of the world but bear the light of truth found in God's Word.

Those with a mature ear will hear and know that our weapons are not carnal, but they are mighty for the pulling down of strongholds. Many will bow before the throne of grace and start to intercede for the human race while there is still time. Pray for those who are willing to go into this horrific dark corner of hate and release a mighty move of the Spirit of repentance and redemption.

Be not overpowered by the enemy's offer of hate, reject the wickedness upon his plate and instead reinstate the full power of the Father's love.
