If We Want to Eat Then We Need to Pray

 There is an ongoing coordinated attack on our food supply, data summed up here.  "They" have decided to wage war on humanity but this didnt just start yesterday it started in earnest with the virus/vaccine.  When that didn't "do its job" well enough now they have resorted to all sorts of other means including an attempt to start WW3 as well as a mutlipronged attack on both food supply (destroy storage and processing plants) and demand (destroy the economy so people cannot afford food.)  They also know the war on oil feeds into this war on humanity.  If they wanted to move to a greener economy there is a way to do that but that is not going to happen overnight without alot of killing, stealing and destroying taking place at the same time.  Just a coincidence that our enemies are in love with killing stealing and destroying so this is the method that has been chosen.

All we hear and see is bad news everywhere.  The Spirit of the Lord has counseled us that while this world goes through this pain we are to dwell in faith, hope and love.  This is not denying reality it is shaping reality.  What we believe matters.  What we focus on matters.  Matter (physical reality) can be molded, formed and fashioned through belief which is why we were told:

Mark 11:24

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

The enemy wants everyone in a state of fear, hopelessness and hate which is the opposite of where our Lord wants us.  Thus in addition to the attack on humanity from every side we also have the psycological operations (non-stop bad news).  Kill, steal and destroy through full court press using every means available to them, thats what they are doing.  We have been given the answers to these problems and they can all be found in the best selling book in world history.

The enemy has not been granted power to determine the end time timeline.  The Restrainer is at work on the earth today which means "they" do not get their "new world" today.  A praying, believing remnant Church is still alive on this earth today which is another major problem for the enemy hordes waging war against humanity.

The enemy and his servants are and have been trying to erase a majority of humanity from the face of the earth.  The Lord has a plan to do just that (details in Revelation) but that time has not arrived yet.  In addition to the presence of the Restrainer and the Church which work hand in hand, "they" do not have their superman yet (we know him as the anti-Christ).  The Restrainer prevents their superman arriving before his time.  Believers in the past have been unnecessarily flustered at suggestions the anti-Christ had arrived but the Lord told us what to look for to know when/whether or not this has happened yet:

2 Thess 2:

 9The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders10and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

^^This has absolutely positively NOT happened yet, but it is coming.  When is the Lord God's domain not that of man or the enemy.  

For today we need to continue in faith, hope and love.  No, it will not be easy but this is the path forward and it is what we have been called to.  If you are on earth today you are here for a reason, it was no accident.  Each one of us has talents, skills and abilities that are to be used in accordance with our Master's please to do His will on earth.  In order to work, we need to eat.  This servant is not concerned per se as we have many promises like this one:

Ps 37

18The LORD knows the days of the blameless,
and their heritage will remain forever;
19they are not put to shame in evil times;
in the days of famine they have abundance.

 Not concerned but aware and what about those who are yet to enter our Father's kingdom who are not leaning on the promises today?  We pray for ourselves and for them.  This is war, the enemy knows it, we know it.  Now it is all out in the open.  Let us do our part to fight the good fight of faith.  Let us get down on our knees to make the enemy tremble.  We are headed in the opposite direction of this world.  Its ways are not our ways because our ways are His ways.  Faith, hope, love.  Fast, stay in the Word and hold onto the promises for dear life because the promises are our life:

PS 138

1I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
2I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.a

We pray the promises (the Word) back to our Lord in faith and we do so in His Name.  Thus we pray back to Him the two things He has lifted above all things.  Then we believe we have received what we have asked for in prayer sealing the circle of prayer.  We do this over and over again, praying constantly without ceasing.  Wartime calls for extra effort.  The enemy is very busy, let us be busier still.

Glory to God

Grace and Peace
