Good morning, Family:
I began writing this blog yesterday morning, but I just couldn’t send it. My heart was breaking as the Holy Spirit led me to the three passages below. This is all our fault. The Church, God’s pure Bride.
Unfortunately, today, when I woke up, the same message was still in my heart, which means the Spirit of the Living God has not released me from the heavy word, but today, I feel hope.
Family, the enemy has received permission, by way of the protective hand of God being temporarily removed from over us, for a period of time.There are two things happening in this season.
First, the Season of Grace has temporarily been lifted. We, as a people, are experiencing the partial darkness of a world separated from the covering of God. This is only a glimpse of what will happen, if we, The Church, dont turn back to God. The church has gotten out of order. We have cheated on our First Love.
Second, a modern day Passover is taking place. God is separating the wheat from the chaff and the Angel of Death is making its way across the world. Instead of putting the blood of animals on our homes, like instructed by Moses in Exodus, today, we have the benefit of a New Covenant through the redeeming blood of Jesus. Once we ask Jesus into our heart, we have been covered with his Blood. The dwelling place for God now becomes our heart.
The problem is that we have removed God from the holiest dwelling place, the Temple of our hearts. What or who is sitting in the holiest place in our heart? Who has taken residence in God’s most holy place? Forgive us, Lord. Restore our hearts to right order. Remove everything that is taking up residence in your house, our heart.
The Message (MSG)
Advancing from One Evil to the Next
18-22 I drown in grief.
Oh, listen! Please listen! It’s the cry of my dear people
reverberating through the country.
Is God no longer in Zion?
Has the King gone away?
Can you tell me why they flaunt their plaything-gods,
their silly, imported no-gods before me?
The crops are in, the summer is over,
but for us nothing’s changed.
We’re still waiting to be rescued.
For my dear broken people, I’m heartbroken.
I weep, seized by grief.
Are there no healing ointments in Gilead?
Isn’t there a doctor in the house?
So why can’t something be done
to heal and save my dear, dear people?
Living Bible (TLB)
4 “Yet there is one thing wrong; you don’t love me as at first! 5 Think about those times of your first love (how different now!) and turn back to me again and work as you did before; or else I will come and remove your candlestick from its place among the churches.
2 Chronicles 7:12-15
Living Bible (TLB)
12 One night the Lord appeared to Solomon and told him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this Temple as the place where I want you to sacrifice to me. 13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust swarms to eat up all of your crops, or if I send an epidemic among you, 14 then if my people will humble themselves and pray, and search for me, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. 15 I will listen, wide awake, to every prayer made in this place.
In Christ alone,
Rev. Marcia Davis
