Lord, what do You want to speak to the church today?
I have called you to be a nation of leaders, not a nation of followers. You are to lead and not to follow (Deut. 28:1-14). You are to initiate and not react. You are to hear My voice, discern My purposes, receive Your assignment along with My anointing to carry out that assignment and say, "Yes, Lord" to what I commission you to do (John 5:19, 20, 30).
You are not to look at your weakness. You are not to look at your strengths. You are to look at Me and My anointing pulsating through your life (Heb. 12:1,2). Then you can do all things (Phil. 4:13). Then fear is gone. Then faith takes its place, erupting from your heart and overcoming all odds.
You are not to look at the Antichrist or at the works of evil men. Have I ever commanded you to do this? Have I not commanded you to fix your eyes on Me and to dwell on things which are lovely, just and of a good report (Phil. 4:8)? Have I not promised perfect peace for the one whose mind and imagination are fixed on ME (Isa. 26:3)?
When evil comes in like a flood, I raise up a standard against it (Isa. 59:19). You are that standard. You are the ones I am raising up now to fulfill positions of authority with righteous leadership. Only the godly can accomplish this. You accomplish it by praying for Me to raise up righteous leaders and remove the wicked and by listening to My voice to see in what area(s) I am calling you to lead in.
Do I not lead in all areas? I am King of kings and Lord of lords, so I am a political leader. I own all the wealth in every mine so I am a financial leader. I am the healer, restorer and deliverer so I am a leader in health and wellness. I teach you all things and lead you into all truth, so I am a leader in education. Each of these areas is ministry. All areas are ministry. I need My church leading in all areas of society, recognizing the earth is Mine and all it contains, and every aspect of work and service in My earth is ministry unto Me (Ps. 24:1; Col. 3:23,24).
Call one another to minister in each and every area that I minister in. Call them to be political leaders, financial leaders, educational leaders and health care leaders. Tell them, "This is your ministry unto the Most High God." Fulfill your assigned ministry!
Do not concern yourself about the rapture or the evil of wicked men. Concern yourself with Me and My leading and My anointing in your life and say "yes" to Me and My call upon your life.
I will call and anoint you to do much greater things than you have ever dreamed possible. All things are possible to those who trust in the Lord (Mark. 9:23). Your only limitation is your level of faith and obedience to press forward in doing that which I ask you to do.
Did I not take David, a shepherd boy, and make him a king? Have I not often taken that which the world has despised and used it to transform nations? You are called, commissioned and anointed to disciple all nations (Matt. 28:19). Ask Me what area you are to disciple and be constantly active in releasing My anointed leadership into that area.
Through this, the standard of righteousness is raised up and the wicked are defeated. Always know that I am Lord, even over the wicked, and only use them to further My purposes. So never fear the wicked. Never be dismayed by their power, for their breath comes from Me and I can and will remove it in My perfect time, when they have accomplished My perfect will.
Let not your heart fear or be troubled. Believe that as I have intervened often in the past bringing revival and restoration, I will do it again in your day, and you can be part of what I am doing by listening, hearing and obeying My instructions unto you.
Watch and see the salvation of the Lord. Watch, I say, and see the salvation of the Lord. Watch, I say, and see the salvation of the Lord.
