I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

2013 Appointments

Nothing Is Better
Than Rising
with the SON

Copyright 2012 - S. Hicks

Greetings -

It’s not Happy New Year - It’s HAPPIER New Year.

We accept the gift of another season from the GOD of truth - our loving, holy and generous Shepherd.

Warrior saints are prepared to set it ON in the majestic name of Jesus Christ.

- Warrior saints ain’t begging the devil for nothing (For effect, bad grammar was used here on purpose).   

- We have our supernatural stones aimed to slay Goliaths with bulls eye accuracy.

- We are equipped with spiritual blood of JESUS covered “bullets” to pierce and to dispossess darkness. We ain’t packing blanks.  In the name of Jesus, we’re packing fire power from the Holy Ghost. Indeed, our weapons are not carnal but mighty through GOD.

- We advance forward.  Fainting is NOT on our agenda.  We shall impact with assorted strategic methods to love the hell out of people, and to steadfastly torment and frustrate Satan and his demonic forces.  We shall excel in spiritual victories. 

GOD shall manifest to prove to those who need to know that warrior saints won’t retreat but advance with astonishing triumphs.  


The trumpets have sounded.  We are watchmen on the wall with holy declarations of “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”


GOD is NOT a sugar daddy, a genie in a bottle, a lucky charm or a puppet on a string.  He’s GOD Almighty, most High!  He is to be steadfastly reverenced, worshiped and exalted.  That’s the ONLY agenda that brings good success and righteous transformations.


Our Lord says, “Be of good cheer, it is I - be not afraid.  You are fortified with holy sanctified weaponry.  Go forth warriors and perform valiantly.  I am for you.  I am with you.  You are on the side of the Chief man of war - Exodus 15:3 - KJV.   Do a Holy Bible and testimony review and you’ll be reminded that there is NO battle that I have NOT won.  I AM undefeated - past, present and future.


“For triumphant results:

- “Abiding in GOD is vital. -  John Chapter 15 - KJV.  Steadfast engagement in prayer and the Word of life - 1 John 1:1 - KJV - is critically important.  Expect increased knowledge, wisdom, and discernment.

- “Love and the other fruits of the Spirit must steadfastly be in operation. Galatians 5:22, 23 - KJV

- “Sharp shooters in the kingdom of GOD must be credible and keep your worthy words.  Dishonesty and lack of integrity can be witness and testimony ‘killers.’  Proverbs 19:22 - KJV -‘…a poor man is better than a liar.’

Ephesians 6 - KJV - warriors of GOD, go forth and conquer for you are well able to overcome.  Numbers 13:30 - KJV

“HAPPIER New Year to you, My dear heirs. 

“Love, Your GOD of truth.”   

New Years Eve 2012

Hi -

Warriors of GOD message

Our Lord knows who this is for:

He says:

I have promoted you and Satan knows it. He'll fight you with more intensity now. Fear not, though, but KNOW that you'll need to fight the good fight of faith and war warfares against evil with more holy intensity.
Promotions from Me mean more spiritual responsibilities. Business as usual won't do what's necessary to destroy the works of the devil, subdue his evil, pull down demonic strong holds...

More Holy Bible content needs to be in you, deeper intimacy with Me, and steadfast loyalty to Me as First Love. Utter obedience isn't just necessary. It is vital for your covering by Me in the midst of all Satan intends against you and other holy warriors.

Heed this message. Otherwise, your life is in a vulnerable state...

Satan isn't simply angry at My holy warriors. He is in rage mode.

Fear not but don't lightly esteem this message.

Whatever it is, it's not bigger than GOD. I will provide ALL that you need to keep victories and to be triumphant. Wholly trust Me, Wholly follow Me and utterly obey Me - steadfastly - firm unto the end.

Peace like a river.
Calm in the storms.
Peace in the battles.
Believe GOD. 

Truly, the witness of GOD is greater... - 1 John 5:9 - KJV

Glory to GOD Is Always in Season

Hi -

Sinning these days is worse than back in the day. When we Christians were sinners we didn't do some of the things that sinners do these days.

They go to clubs and have fully clothed intercourse, as they say, "dropping it like it's hot, etc." They do major body exposure in public. The vulgarity of some is beyond filth, etc. And perversion has reached new levels of wickedness...

Yet, some Christians are ashamed to be seen in public reading Holy Bibles and sharing about Jesus. And some are "shy" about their Christian witness and are under cover Christians. Some hang with sinners and do more worldly actions than holy actions.

Testimonies of such lack credibility. Even sinners recognize true holiness. They don't embrace it but they recognize it. And some of them will call out fake Christians in a New York minute.


Well, I'm on record that I'm dropping hot words from our Lord as the Spirit of the Living GOD leads. Surely, I purpose to love but love ain't no wimp. Jesus is our example and we are commanded to follow in His steps.

I whip out my Holy Bible - wherever - in public, out of public and I read it out loud sometimes, depending... I've been on public buses and been exposed to folks cursing loudly and such. What did I do? I exposed them to GOD'S truth. I opened my Bible and read out loud amongst the cursing folks. I'll sit quietly on buses but when folks get loud for their daddy the devil - I get loud for my daddy, GOD. I praise the Lord and quote scripture out loud... Yes, indeed... -

Proverbs 28:1 - KJV
...the righteous are bold as a lion.

I'm from the inner city and have lived most of my life in the inner city and I live there now. I prefer it, actually, but these inner city sinners ain't going to shut me up or prevent me from abiding in my Father, GOD. Yes, I love and pray for them but I'm not going to be punked. And glory to GOD, I'm not going to contain all of my rejoicing and praising to church. My praises go up - wherever - in order with the Holy Ghost. That's real, folks!

The devil has too many Christians in fainthearted mode.  ...Been there, done that and am over it.


Lord, please help us to keep ourselves pure and perfecting holiness in the name of Jesus.

Thank You, Lord - Amen

An Open Letter to Drug Addicts/Dealers, Alcoholics, Pimps, Prostitutes, and Whores

Greetings -

Some may wonder why I’ve posted this on a Christian blog page. The main reason is because our Lord told me to and He knows that some of my blog connections have family members and loved ones caught up in the grip of perverted lifestyles.

Here is what the Lord says to them:

I’m coming for some of you. From the foundation of the world, you are mine. Satan desires to keep you but he cannot cancel My holy plans for you. You are now wheeling and dealing in the world but I’m going to put a halt to your nonsense and unholy addictions. I’m coming for you. You are mine. 

Alcoholics will put down Jack Daniels and pick up JESUS. He is the Christ, the Son of the living GOD. Drug dealers will deal out of the game of death and join ranks with JESUS - full throttle. Drug addicts will become addicted to holiness. Whores will kick their habits and keep their legs closed for JESUS. They’ll open them up again for GOD-sent husbands. Prostitutes will close up “shop” and leave the tricks for JESUS treats. Pimps will turn in their player cards and team with King JESUS.

Oh yes, I’m coming for some of you. And when I process you from salvation, to sanctification, to holiness, Holy Ghost revolution will be ON in unprecedented ways. You are going to become fire lion warriors with eagles’ wings. For surely, I will prove to you that My love, joy, peace power, and goodness is better than all. Only GOD is the optimum of EVERYTHING good!

Satan can’t keep you. When the fullness of time arrives, I’m coming for some of Satan’s best. You shall become some of GOD’S best. The apostle Paul didn’t plan to forsake Satan. He had persecuting Christian plans until JESUS met him on the road to Damascus. Paul became one of my most dedicated friends. He wasn’t seeking Me. I drew Him to my awesome heart. I knew before the foundation of the world that Paul was mine just as I know about you…


Habakkuk 2:2, 3 - KJV

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

1 Corinthians 16:15 - KJV
…and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,)

Fire Works Notice

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Kings 18:38, 39
Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord he is the God; the Lord, he is the God.


This post is inspired by Susie.  I read a post on her blog titled, "The Old Paths." In the subject post Susie asks, "Why has the fire stopped?"


I wonder how much we Christians are responsible for much of the cease fire and low burns.

Here is our Lord's response: 

"Some have asked, 'Where is the fire?' 

"I AM the fire. Hebrews 12:29 says, 'For our God is a consuming fire.'

"Stoke your furnaces, and add solid fuel. Blaze for Me. Inspire Me. Motivate Me - with your holiness. Many say, 'God bless you.' I say to more, 'Bless GOD.' Seek more of My face and less from My hands.

"Who is ready for My Holy Spirit fire that is poised to launch in blazing explosive glory? Now is the time to gird up for the set time is now. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry - Habakkuk 2:3.

"Remember the ten virgins described in My gospel of Matthew. It says in Matthew 25:2-4, 'And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.'

"Exodus 32:26 asks, 'Who is on the Lord's side?' 1 Kings 18:21 says, '...How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.'

"My eyes are upon all the earth. Revelation 19:12,13 says, 'His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns;... And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.'

"Right now I have people at the ready for My Holy Ghost fire revolution. More are assigned to join. I AM a pure holy fire that cannot be quenched. Come blaze with Me - in holiness - forever!"

Isaiah 24:15
Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel...

Hebrews 1:7
..and his ministers a flame of fire.

Revelation 11:5 proceedeth out of their mouth,...

Luke 12:35
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

Amos 3:7
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Ezekiel 37:10
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

1 Chronicles 12:8 of might, and men of war fit for the battle, that could handle shield and buckler, whose faces were like the faces of lions,...

Joel 2:3,5,7
A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth:...

Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

Joel 2:11
And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Joel 3:16
The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.


Glorious and holy Father, please help us to steadfastly be fully armored with what Your Word commands in Ephesians 6. We need to be vessels of honor who live holy - otherwise we cannot be of the camp that is in league with You to generate Holy Spirit fireworks.

You command us to be doers of Your Word. Our beloved COMMANDER IN CHIEF, we report to You for orders and for Your divine guidance. You never lead us wrong. Let us continue, please, to abide under Your shadow, Almighty ONE.

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Short Short Story

We’re out shopping today at Heavenly Treasures. Already GOD’S will is in our shopping carts. The Holy Bible is secured in our baskets. For sure, love is riding high. We roll down aisle one and pick up some pearls of great price. Next is aisle two where we get some good soil and fruit. Wow! Aisle three has a bunch of goodies and a bonus package. We gleefully pick up some light, salt, glory tablets, and the bonus is - pure gold. We shout Hallelujah!

Whoopee! We get to the register and Jesus rings us up! He won’t accept our payment. Our Lord blows a trumpet and shouts, “I paid it all - paid in full!” Rejoicing, we exclaim, “Thank You, Jesus.” He glows as He embraces us. We do a praise dance…and drive happily away…


Luke 8:8 - KJV
And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundred fold.

Matthew 5:13 – KJV
Ye are the salt of the earth:

Matthew 5:14 – KJV
Ye are the light of the world.

Job 23:10 – KJV
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

War Call

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

War call to whosoever is chosen to be warriors for the most High GOD.

What time is it?

Time to elevate our games.

We're not of the fainthearted persuasion nor are we unbalanced in our spiritual operations. We have the attributes of the Lion and the Lamb. It's vital that we execute in the right modes at the right times.

More new breed warriors are on the horizon poised to pounce and to dismantle the principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places. We are not to tiptoe around issues, or soft pedal the gospel of the kingdom of GOD. We are to give full blown truth messages that leave pronounced and lasting fire trails. Yes, we are to love but love ain't no wimp.

We are chosen to go full throttle against darkness and perversion. We are to boldly do the Words of God with fearless tenacious purpose. We are to back the devil down NOT allow Him to back us down. The Holy Bible commands us to stand and having done all - to stand. We are forbidden to cower or to beg Satan for anything.

Our mission is to possess the kingdom of Almighty GOD in order to dispossess the devil, destroy the works of the devil, to pull down demonic strong holds, and to subdue evil actions.

Satan is not shooting blanks. Neither are we. We have glory weapons. Satan does NOT possess our elite holy Special Forces equipment. We have the edge and the advantage because what we're packing has GOD'S seal of approval. The Holy Ghost arsenal that we possess is a major threat to the kingdom of darkness. We use our ammunition to fire bomb the devil with supernatural precision and skills.

Load up storehouses with more holy fire power. Keep watch. Discern, dissolve doubts. Show up to blow up with the wholly effective and electrifying power of GOD!!!

We're new breed holy warriors. A mean fighting machine. We mean to conquer and advance to gain more holy ground for our Lord, the God of forces. - Daniel 11:38.


It's on record, Satan; you've been put on notice that we're no longer about business as usual. We've elevated our game... - damned devil.

2 Thessalonians 2:12
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


1 Samuel 17:45
This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

Assignments from GOD

Proverbs 16:4
“The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.”

Today as I was meditating on the Lord, and enjoying His awesome company, he gave me a profound revelation.  It is  - that our enemies are on assignments from God.  They are appointed, and allowed to persecute, and mistreat God’s people in order for the purposes of God to be accomplished.  Remember what the Lord told Pharaoh in Exodus 9:16, “And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth. “  Pharaoh was a vigorous opponent of God, and His chosen people, the Israelites.  The word of God states that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart (Exodus 7:13).   The hardening of Pharaoh’s heart was part of our Master’s  plan to demonstrate the almighty power of God.   Also, God’s word says, “…I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” (Isaiah 45:7).

You know how it is when you have read from God’s word some scriptures, and you know in your head that the information is true, but than those occasions come when the Lord later illuminates those same scriptures, and the message penetrates to the core of the soul?!  That is what happened to me today.  Some opposition presented itself…and immediately in my spirit, I declared, “They are my help.”  It became vividly clear to my spirit that those who opposed me were on assignment from God to strengthen me in my resolve to choose to believe what God states in His word – that greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).  The encounter further cemented that our Lord is able to provide much proof that truly, He is above it all.  It is one thing to hear it or read it  – it is another thing to be fully persuaded that what God promises, He is able also to perform (Romans 4:21). 

The Lord mentioned to me recently that it is “Showtime” and that He is the Star.  The show has  featured performers, some bit players, some extras, and a few who make cameo appearances.  God is the Star, Promoter, Financier, Producer, and Director.  God’s faithful people are the stellar cast members  -  while the devil, his demons, and those that perform for them are the hired help.   When God’s people are on set, they busy themselves fulfilling the meaningful roles arranged by God.  One of those assigned roles is to strive to recruit some of the hired help to become part of the stellar cast. 

In this universe, everybody works for God – God’s people, and the devil, and his people.  Indeed, Satan is the god of this world but he still works for God.  He is able to do only what God allows, and what God allows, God controls.  The devil must have God’s “endorsement” before he can proceed with anything.  God’s people know that they work for God as opposed to many of the devil’s people who do not know that they work for the devil who works for God.  The devil has his people deceived – that is why they so foolishly follow his commands.  The devil is treacherous, conniving, cunning, and his intent is to keep people in wicked bondage.  But unlike the kingdom of God, the kingdom of Satan shall be destroyed.  O glory to our Almighty Father, Jesus Christ is the risen Savior who is here to make the captives free, and whom the Son makes free is free indeed!      

The Lord urges us throughout His word not to be afraid or dismayed because He is our fortress who employs us to be courageous in the midst of opposition.  Remember that Jesus was asleep in the boat during a great storm.  The disciples were afraid.  Jesus was at peace.  He let it be known that the sea, and the wind worked for Him.  They had to obey His commands because He rules over all creation!  

People of God, it is growing increasingly essential that we know our position in the body of Christ.   This is a place in our lives where lax performance can no longer be tolerated without painful consequences from God due to continual lack of devotion to His will.  God is expecting more from us, and rightly so!  He is weary of the devil’s people being more loyal to their father than we are to our Father God.  We need to war a good warfare with the awareness that we work for God.  He is the absolute best Employer who provides the best rewards, the best benefits, the best wages, and the best contract for the righteous – a covenant for everlasting life!!!   Everybody works for God.  We are all on assignment for God - He rules over all, and His kingdom cannot be destroyed because from everlasting to everlasting He is God!

Pool Lessons

Three men are at the pool.

One of them is afraid to go in so he wades in the water with his feet.

One of them heads to the kiddie pool and goes in. He’s waist deep in the water. He splashes around there.

Kids look at him as the intruder that he is.

One of them asks, "Hey mister, why are you in the kiddie pool?!"

Sheepishly, the man responds, "I like it here."

The kid says to him, "But you don't belong in the kiddie pool." 

The other kids chime in with agreement.

The man is ashamed. He leaves the kiddie pool and joins the man who is wading with his feet in the water.

The kids look on and shake their heads. They go on about having their pool fun.

Meanwhile, the third man is in the deep part of the pool. He has dived off the diving board with daring moves and exercises. He’s swimming with strong strokes. It’s obvious that he is in a place of immense enjoyment. He’s having a ball with the other deep swimmers. It’s a blast!

The two water waders look over at the deep activities. The waders look at one another - "Naw" - they agree. They stay ankle deep.

That scenario is like some of what goes on in Christian communities.

There are those who desire to be ankle deep in GOD - a little something something with GOD.

Then there are those who desire to be in the kiddie pool - about waist deep - - some more of GOD but not all of GOD.

Then there are those who desire deep water experiences with GOD - all the way in - fully covered.

Are we wading, kidding - or swimming in the high tides?

Scriptures from the King James Bible:

1 Corinthians 13:11
...but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1 Corinthians 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Prayer for Addiction Strong Holds

I watched a Christian man, Ben Ward, who is on staff at a faith-based program called Eagle Creek Recovery Center -  He gave his testimony that from the age of twelve, he began to drink alcohol which led to pot, and a crack cocaine addiction. 

Ben testified that before he became a staff member at Eagle Creek, he was a client there.  He had these things to say:

- He became "intimately acquainted with truth."

- There is no freedom in sobriety to change the human heart.

- Only the indwelling Spirit of Almighty GOD can change the heart.     

Ben went on to advice parents and other loved ones of addicts.  He said to release them, and to stop giving them money...  He said, "Get your hands off and GOD will get HIS hands on." 

I praise GOD that Ben Ward shared his journey to freedom in CHRIST.

For addicts

Pure and holy Father GOD, thank You that with You all things are possible.  Your Word states that there is nothing too hard for You.

In this prayer, I decree deliverance and complete freedom for drug and alcohol addicts.  Father, You know that among the many addicts, there are professional people who are addicted, and that includes doctors and other medical professionals, some of who are addicted to prescription drugs.  There are people all over this world who are gripped by the bondage of addiction.  They are found in every economic class, race, culture, and persuasion.  

Lord, I ask, according to Your Word, that You will set the captives free, set at liberty those who are bound, and send Your Word to heal them.  Let Your holy saints go forth to love on those who are gripped by the strongholds of demonic addictions.  Reveal the best ways to help them with Your Word as guide.   Allow Your Holy Ghost power to move within the ensnared hearts, and lead the addicted to run into Your healing arms.    

Work Your marvels, blessed Lord, and prove to the doubters that You reign.  You are powerful beyond measure and only You can subdue and destroy the works of the devil that hold people captive.  Get the "monkeys off their backs," Lord, and put JESUS in their hearts.  You are love, glorious Father GOD.  Let, please, Your rivers of living water pour forth as a miraculous fountain to wash people clean with the operation of Your Word and JESUS' righteous blood.  You are a Fortress, a Rock, a Strong Tower, and a very present help in the time of trouble.  

Deliverance is a process.  Process people, please Lord, through all of the necessary channels to reach triumphant victories.  Equip them, glorious Father, to stand fully armored to vanquish the vicious "death" grips that Satan worked on them.  Teach them to have life and to have it more abundantly.  Let them taste and see that the Lord is good.  Teach them to fight the good fight of faith through steadfast obedience to You and Your Word.  Give them staying power.  Show them how to fight on their knees and on their faces in full dependence on You.  Remove them from toxic and negative relationships.  Let Your awesome anointing flood the souls of the many thirsty people.  Work in them, please, Lord, hearts that will not faint but press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ JESUS.

For loved ones of addicts

Father, in the name of JESUS, help those who love and care for addicts.  There are Christians who have loved ones who are addicted to drugs and alcohol.  They hurt, Lord.  Please help them to continue to believe Your Word and to trust You to deliver and to destroy the works of the devil.  Give them the strength to use their holy authority to keep faith in the powerful blood of JESUS.  Teach them, please, Father, to be still and to know that You are GOD. Lead them to seek Your wisdom as to what to do, when, and how. Assure them that they are NOT victims but blood bought heirs of You, Almighty GOD and joint heirs with JESUS.  Guide them to know that they can have peace, joy, and Your blessed assurances in the midst of their storms.  Let them shed the necessary tears of grief but then dry their eyes and praise You, Lord.  You promised to keep us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on You.  

Lord, those who are not Christians need salvation for themselves, and for their drug and alcohol addicted loved ones.  Please reach the hearts of the unsaved and distressed.  So many are in despair, Father.  But You can change and liberate weary and despondent conditions.  Please, Lord, prove to the many that are gripped by fear, pain and uncertainties that You love them hugely, and can effectively help in ALL matters.

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Domestic Abuse


Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thank You for Your love, care, and faithfulness. This prayer is for abusers, the abused, and those who can help in the matters of domestic abuse.

For abusers:

Lord, Your hand is not shortened that it cannot save; neither Your ear heavy, that it cannot hear. Father, we know that nothing is impossible with You. Draw, please, abusers by Your marvelous love, grace, forgiveness and mercy. Many of them have been abused themselves. Their souls cry out for help but they do not know how to slay the demonic that resides within them. Minister to them, please Father, and quell their inner storms. Reach to the deepness of them and penetrate them to the core of their being and free them from their dark existences. Your Word teaches us Your realities and one of Your realities is that not all shall be saved. I pray this prayer from what JESUS stated in John 17:9, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine." Pull their miserable souls, Father, out of the fire.

For the abused:

Father, there is much pain, fear and hurt in the lives of the abused. I call upon You, please, to rescue people from abuse. Expose and rebuke their abusers and if they do not forsake their abuses, let justice prevail. Save the abused and give them hearts after Yours. Let them come to You, Lord, with tears flowing so that You can wipe their sobs away. Bind up their wounds and let healing manifest and free them from their horrors. Prove to them that You can minister to their every need in gigantic proportions. Teach them to forgive for indeed there is freedom in forgiveness. Build them up Lord because for so long they have been torn down. Send people to love on them - they need rich relationships. Give them the hope of glory and the peace that passes all understanding. Assure them that You are their rescuer, deliverer, strong tower, shield and buckler. Envelop them in Your secure embrace.

For those who can help:

please move upon people to help those who are captive in abuse situations. Give sensitivity training to people to reach out to those who live in shame, fear, and rage. Help people to get understanding about domestic abuse. Provide people with skill sets to make major differences in the lives of those who are bound. You are holy, Father, and You have holy people who can dismantle the wicked devices of Satan. You have people who can do warfare against the forces of darkness. We walk in the light and our lights need to be burning. We are not to be as the Levite and the Priest who passed by the one in need. (Luke 10:33). Your Word commands us in Galatians 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ." Let us do it, Lord, according to Your Word. It is our duty as Your vessels of honor.

I decree Lord that You will answer this prayer in manifold ways with bountiful evidence to manifest - because that is your signature style.

Thank you, Lord, - Amen.

Greetings - 
A pastor stated that the Lord spoke to him and expressed that if his church is not relevant it will continue to be ignored.  The pastor has a sizable church.  He stated that after that word from the Lord he went on a mission to make his church relevant.

Also, I heard something to the effect - "If your church decided to leave the community would there be a rallying from the community to keep it there?"  In other words, if your church left, would it, for the most part, be missed?

That made me think - how are we as Christians relevant today?  

One pastor, Sam Chand, stated that he told a pastor friend, "If you were in the seventies, you would be cutting edge."  We need to be current with the times without changing the message of the gospel.  

How are we relevant, people? 

We should be anointed, authorized and powered by GOD as true worshippers who are change agents, innovators, developers of witty inventions, prosperous entrepreneurs, etc. who impact....

There is an anointed Christian judge who once cleaned in the building where she became a judge.  Hallelujah!  Praise our Lord. On her website it testifies of how our Lord uses her because of her faithful service to Him.  She is a contributor on CNN and there are a host of other things that she does.  Clearly, she is relevant.

An anointed janitor can be relevant as can a dishwasher or maid. It is not the natural profession or job that is the vital ingredient. It is the condition of the heart.  Our duty is to be willing and obedient to what GOD elects. 

The prophet Amos was a farmer - he was relevant.  David was a shepherd - he was relevant.  Queen Esther was relevant for such a time as this...(Esther 4:14)  

The Acts 17:6
...These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

GOD expects His people to do as according to The Acts 17:6!!! 

It cannot be done without love as a base because without love we are nothing.  We need to overflow with the fruits of the Spirit as defined in Galatians 5:22 and seek to righteously use the gifts of the Spirit.  Only then can GOD trust us to use us to turn the world upside down.  

I Timothy 3:15
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.  

Romans 6:12
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Romans 6:13
Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Romans 6:14
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Joshua 1:8
...and then thou shalt have good success.

...otherwise we cannot be relevant!
