Why Christians Must Be Fixed to God’s Higher Purposes

by | Nov 24, 2020 | Purpose & Identity

Dear Christian and intercessor: Please be assured, this painstaking electoral process we are walking through is not just for our sake or the sake of this president. It is not to criticize the left or justify the right. It is not for the reputation of our country or even the health of our citizens. What we are witnessing is the vindication of the Lord—for the sake of His name.

“But I acted for My name’s sake, that it should not be polluted before the nations among whom they were, in whose sight I made Myself known to them in bringing them out of the land of Egypt” (Ezek. 20:9).

The ongoing corruption and generational iniquities in high places of government has reached the tipping point. It is heaven’s determination that the wicked shall no longer rule over the land allotted to the righteous (see Ps. 125:3). The zeal of the Lord has been kindled from heaven’s throne, and we cannot cave in to circumstances or be distracted by doubts. I feel the indignation of the Lord, and God will no longer be mocked or allow His laws to be trampled. His sovereignty and dominion have been blatantly subverted, and the prayers of the saints and hearts of the humble have stirred Him to action.

I say to those who debate the purpose of this hour: This is not the time for judgment upon a sleeping church. Though our apathy has been noted and our weakness been made clear, it is not the time to prolong our chastisement with a furtherance of wicked rulers. Rather, it is the time of judgment upon the enemies of God and those who have deliberately rebelled against His authority. The cup is full. It is the time of executing justice on those who have come out of hiding and shamelessly paraded their tyranny against God in the open.

This battle is not about electing a man but overturning a regime. This is not about the office of the president but resetting the plumb line of truth. We can no longer waver between two opinions. We must stand in faith with heaven’s purpose and keep our eyes on the larger goal if we are to discern correctly and pray strategically for heaven’s outcome.

In the coming weeks, decisions will be rendered by judges with gavel in hand. But we have even greater authority in our hands—we hold the scepter of the King (see Ps. 110:1-2). We have been given heaven’s authority to speak for the throne and stand by those who defend it. It is the righteous remnant that must rise in faith to intercede for this judicial process as heaven and earth come into agreement. Corruption must be exposed, and deception must be unveiled as those who have held the nations captive are brought to justice. Now is the time for righteous intercession to be heard in the heavens to render justice and vindication for the King and His kingdom.

I am personally fixed in my faith as to God’s higher purposes in this process. As a result, I also believe these truths will become self-evident:

1—God will have His way in the outcome of this election. As the remnant of God continues to stand fast in prayer, it is the fear of the Lord that will manifest and demonstrate to a doubting world the supremacy of the King and the preeminence of His domain.

2—President Trump will be confirmed for another four years to complete heaven’s assignment on his life to punish the wrongdoers and champion the right.

3—Deep-state corruption and global subversion will be exposed and proven for all the world to see. Many will be utterly shocked as to the decades of profiteering and the depth of depravity among many rulers of the earth.

4—Those who have conspired against God’s laws, even from years past, will be brought to justice and pay the price for their complicity in works of darkness.

5—Those who have wavered in faith and doubted God’s prophetic words will be renewed in their hearts and strengthened in their walk. The miraculous outcome will be a testament to the world, and ignite a fire of the Lord that will bring multitudes into the kingdom of God.

We don’t need to know heaven’s timetable or the details of the operation. We just need to be convinced of the mission and secure in our prayers. The world will continue to pour water on our altars of intercession in hopes of quenching our fire. In the end—it won’t matter. The coming supernatural fire of God will settle, once and for all, who is God. We just need to stay standing and declaring God’s purposes.

Regardless of what things looks like or sound like, keep your eyes fixed on the prize. The armies of heaven are on their way to defend the King’s honor and those who serve Him. If things look impossible, it’s only because He is purposely removing every crutch we depend on so that He alone will get the glory.

“See, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction. For My own sake, even for My own sake, I will do it; for how can My name be polluted? And I will not give My glory to another” (Isa. 48:10-11). {eoa}
