Some of you may be joining us for the first week of prayer and fasting. Some are doing a ‘soul fast’ this week. For me personally part of my Fast is off social media (apart from RTeam!) It’s the scrolling I will happily discipline myself from.
It is so easy to be distracted in a nation by what happens in the natural. Social media and media in general always presents a biased opinion with an intent to brainwash us into believing it is the truth.
Andrew encouraged us yesterday around the revelation that our citizenship is in HEAVEN as Christ followers. That we are first residents of the kingdom of heaven and therefore carry a different spirit and culture.
We have seen in recent days what happens in a nation who are our neighbours when fear, accusation, labelling, power and position play at large into the human psyche of unrest and mistrust.
No wonder the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders. And reminds us that the Lord is the Lord of all the nations.
Today I want to move beyond the natural realms of leadership in our own nation of Canada and, instead, speak into its spiritual dynamics. There have been some well known ministries come through this nation over the last year and become to prophesy into her future. Here are some of the things that they have spoken over Canada.
“Some of the greatest healing ministries that have been sown out of Canada like John G. Lake and Aimee Semple McPherson would be honoured in the wells left here for a great healing revival.
God is seeking to ignite the fires of revival, and this does have a sense of something special on it in this season for Canada!”
How cool of that … Rick Joyner saying that there will be an igniting of fires .. and we are right in this series as we pray!
We are believing this last week of prayer and fasting will be the unlocking of your breakthrough. So don’t give up. We believe there is like a spiritual ‘fresh air’ coming.
Historically, Canada has also been the seedbed for some of the great moves of God that broke out in the U.S. And beyond, and I expect this one to raise up many messengers who will be true flames of fire.” –Rick Joyner
The scripture that the Lord has given Andrew and I for the nation of Canada right now is:
“He said, “That you love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and muscle and intelligence—and that you love your neighbor as well as you do yourself.””
Luke 10:27 MSG
If we get busy loving God and even our ‘neighbour in the USA’ as much as we love ‘ourselves’ Canada … this is the greatest commandment. It will be perfect love that conquers all fear. Let’s stay busy loving.
So Resurgent Church .. keep leaning into this season and this move of God. We haven’t seen anything yet in comparison to what He wants to do in and through us.
