Election

Isaiah 49:25 (AMP)
Indeed, this is what the Lord says,

“Even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away,
And the tyrant’s spoils of war will be rescued;
For I will contend with your opponent,
And I will save your children.

O God, contend with the strong man that oppresses the United States of America and holds its citizens captive. Contend with the demonic principality that is trying to influence this election. Save our children! Amen.


Devourer

November 7, 2016

Jeremiah 51:44a (HCSB)
I will punish Bel in Babylon.
I will make him vomit what he swallowed.

Malachi 3:10-11 (ESV)
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts.

Our Father in heaven,
Our children have been devoured. Fifty-nine million babies have been aborted in the US since Roe v Wade in 1973.
Our wealth has been devoured. Our national debt is $19,000,000,000,000.
Our covenants are being devoured. The marriage rate in the US has hit a record low.
We cry out, Mercy, Lord, mercy!
Release Your wisdom to the Christians in the United States of America. Teach us how to war against the devourer. Teach us how to pray. Release a spirit of thanksgiving with tithes and offerings throughout the church. Rebuke the devourer for us!
We loose the holy angels that war against Baal, especially over Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We call forth the Gideons to pull down the altars of Baal. Amen.


Philadelphia, PA–Changing of the guard

September 26, 2016

In preparation for the national election, I am looking at our nation’s origins in Philadelphia, PA.–JW

The Swedes named their settlement New Sweden. They traded for furs with the Indians, planted wheat, rye, and tobacco, and built forts for defense.
However, the Dutch had previously established New Amsterdam on Manhattan Island. Though they had not settled the country, they did not like the prospering Swedish Colony. So they collected a little fleet with an army of about six hundred men and in 1655 set sail for the Delaware River. This was not a very large army, but the Swedes, not being strong enough to fight, gave up to the Dutch without firing a shot or striking a blow. They were left on their farms under the rule of Holland and the colony of New Sweden came to an end.
The English also claimed this region. In 1664 an English fleet appeared before New Amsterdam, took it without firing a gun, and named it New York. Then they sent two ships to the Delaware and took the settlement there also, but not until some Dutch soldiers had been killed and wounded. This was the first bloodshed in all the quarrels of the Europeans in that region.

<em>Numbers 35:33 (ESV)</em>
<strong>You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it.</strong>

<em>Deuteronomy 21:1, 6-8 (ESV)</em>
<strong>“If in the land that the Lord your God is giving you to possess someone is found slain, lying in the open country, and it is not known who killed him . . .
And all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man shall wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley, and they shall testify, ‘Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see it shed. Accept atonement, O Lord, for your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, and do not set the guilt of innocent blood in the midst of your people Israel, so that their blood guilt be atoned for.’</strong>

Our Father in heaven,

How much blood has been shed along the Delaware River? As a descendant of European immigrants in America, I cry out for mercy. We have polluted the land of this great nation by spilling blood.

Lord, have mercy. Do not set the guilt of innocent blood in our midst. Help us, we pray.

The Lamb of God, Your Son Jesus Christ, died to atone for our sins in Philadelphia, PA. We cover the blood shed in sin that pollutes this land with His Blood shed in love. We cover the blood shed by European settlers against one another.

Accept atonement, O Lord, for our nation, especially Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whom you have redeemed. Do not set the guilt of innocent blood in the midst of Philadelphia.

As intercessors of the church, we declare “Love!” over Philadelphia. Amen.

Philadelphia, PA–the Swedes

September 25, 2016

In light of the upcoming national elections, I will be looking at our nation’s roots in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.–JW

The first permanent white settlement in Philadelphia was planted in the 1640s by the Swedes. The oldest church in Pennsylvania is Old Swedes’, formerly a Swedish Lutheran congregation. It is now an Episcopal congregation called Gloria Dei.

Isaiah 48:17-18 (NKJV)
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
The Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
Who teaches you to profit,
Who leads you by the way you should go.
Oh, that you had heeded My commandments!

“O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land. O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day. (Daniel 9:4-7, adapted)

Then your peace would have been like a river,
And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

“O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him. We have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the prophets. . . .

Are there any of Your laws that we in the church in America, including the Episcopal Church, have not broken? We have followed false gods, made false vows, misused Your name, forsaken the Sabbath, dishonored our parents, murdered, condoned abortion, committed adultery, accepted fornication, broken covenants, stolen, lied, and coveted. We have harbored unforgiveness and hatred in our hearts. We have not tithed. We have held slaves. We have been indifferent to the poor. We have engaged in usury. We have sued our fellow Christians in court. We have changed the covenant of marriage. We have not submitted to the authority of Your Holy Word. Lord, have mercy, for the church in America is an offense.

O my God, incline Your ear and hear; open Your eyes and see the desolations of the United States of America; for we do not present our supplications before You because of our righteous deeds, but because of Your great mercies. O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and act! Do not delay for Your own sake, my God, for Your children in the US who are called by the name of Your Son, Christ Jesus.”(Daniel 9:8-10,18-19, adapted)

Gloria Dei! To God be the glory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Amen.


Praise report

September 29, 2015

We have posted many prayers for neuropsychiatric illnesses. The ketogenic diet has been proven beneficial for pediatric epileptics. In addition, there are anecdotal reports of patients with migraine headaches and psychoses improving on the diet.

To God be the glory!


God’s throne

August 9, 2015

Revelation 4 (NIV)

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,’
who was, and is, and is to come.”

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”

Rainbow colors glittering,
Awe-filled elders seated ’round.
Lightning splits the atmosphere;
Rushing air completes the sound.

And the sea lies undisturbed.

Seeing creatures magnify—
Three-fold Holy! round the throne.
Overcome by glory’s weight,
Elders sing their praises prone.

Glory, honor, power, and worth
Is Yours, Creator, God of might.
By Your will we have our life.
By your word, we have this sight.


Jerusalem

July 16, 2015

A few weeks ago, handbills were passed out on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount (and left in other parts of “East Jerusalem”) warning Christians that they will be targets of destruction if they do not leave before the close of Ramadan, which is today.

Psalm 146:5,9b,10 New Living Translation
But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God.
The Lord frustrates the plans of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever.
He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations.
Praise the Lord!

Our Father in heaven,

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
May all who love this city prosper.
O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls
and prosperity in your palaces.
For the sake of our family and friends, we will say,
“Peace be with you.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
we will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.

O Father, You will be to Jerusalem a wall of fire all around and the glory in her midst. You, Lord God Almighty, frustrate the plans of the wicked. We bless Your holy name. Amen.

Psalm 122:6-9, Zechariah 2:5
