6/13/22-If We Want to Eat Then We Need to Pray

 We have another food plant going up in flames here.  One after the other after another and another.  Where are the congressional hearing on protecting our food supply?  We can send 80 billion dollars to Ukraine for their security needs but cant establish security for our own food plants?  This number of food processing plants up in flames in this amount of time is absolutely, positively sabotage.  

"They" have launched an all out assault on we the people.  The enemy and his servants are determined to "burn it all down" as soon as possible.  The November election is not going to save us or feed us.  The Republican party is not going to save us or feed us.  The Lord our God and Him alone is what we have to count on.  In fact that is likely the point of all of this.  The point is look at the world "they" have created without God.  Its a world of killing, stealing, destroying, fear, despair and hatred.  

We need to pray if we want to eat.  That is not hyperbole-its a fact.  They are literally burning down one food processing plant every couple days now.  According to the latest guidance from the Spirit of the Lord we are to remain in faith, hope and love.  And that we are.  While we do that and we see the enemy at work we can pray about it.  There is always something we can do about everything that happens under the sun.  We can pray.

The Word says pray without ceasing:

1 Thess

16Rejoice always, 17pray without ceasing18give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19Do not quench the Spirit. 20Do not despise prophecies, 21but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22Abstain from every form of evil.

This particular piece of scripture is enlightening as it ties in perfectly with the Lord's counsel to remain in faith, hope and love.  Notice verse 16 there "rejoice always."  You mean rejoice even when the enemy is burning down our food supply right in front of our face?  Yep, especially then.  Give thanks in ALL circumstances?  You mean give thanks even when you know "they" are trying to starve us to death?

Yep, especially then.  See, its easy to say.  Its easy to preach this stuff from the pulpit without actually doing it.  Thing is, these are not suggestions they are commands.  The Lord our God is telling us how to get things done and do it the right way.  Mankind has had time to show the world how "great" everything would be if the Creator was rejected and man with his spiritual "counsel" aka the enemy ran things.  Unfortunately that experiment has already turned south as this world is being quickly turned into a cesspool in every way possible.

So, back to the point.  We need to get on our knees and pray.  We need to fast and cry out to the Lord our God to save us from the evil that has come out of the shadows to work in full daylight to the applause of those who are perishing.  In addition we need to use faith hope and love as our "heads up display (HUD)" to use a little fighter pilot jargon.  We also need to remember to rejoice always and give thanks in all circumstances.  Always means today when they are trying to kill us.  In all circumstances means today when they are trying to kill us.

Nobody said it would be easy.  He told us what to do and we with the assistance of the Spirit of the Lord need to figure out "how" to get this implemented.  When we do what we were told to do, things find a way of working themselves out.  Why?  Because behind every command there is Divine wisdom that has our well being in mind.  

The best case scenario for us who believe is to follow the instructions that have been given to us to the letter.  We must do exactly what we were told to do.  This world is where it is today because men and women thought they were smarter than God.  They are about to find out-they were wrong.  The problems we are faced with are coming at us like a tsunami.  Everyone and their brother is there to tell us the bad news of what is going to fail next or what calamity waits for us around the next corner.  Where were these "prophets" a few years ago when everything was seemingly business as usual?

What we need is not more prophets of the obvious but solutions to problems.  We have an entire book of solutions called the Word of God.  The answers we need are in that book.  Our survival is in that book-the promises.  So, in this hour of trial let us do what we were called to do.  We are here for a reason in this hour.  Our God gave us an instruction manual for how things work.  People who choose to disregard the instruction manual get to live with the consequences.

Faith, hope, love, rejoice, give thanks and pray without ceasing about all things at all times.  Our prayers move mountains-thats a fact.  Keep your eyes on the solutions-the time for problem identification is 1000 miles in the rear view mirror.  The Lord will provide, He always has and He always will.  Keep the faith and keep your chin up :)  When you pray join me and all the other brothers and sisters in agreement that the Lord our God will continue to provide the things we need when we need them according to His riches and glory

Phil 4:19

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Glory to God

Grace and Peace
