LOOSEN UP UK BURNING REVIVAL FIRE IS HERE
GROW IN GRACE
From Sam-Best Ewruje, an able minister of the New Testament, not of man nor by man, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but by the will of God through the Grace and Mercy of Christ given unto me. Abundance of Grace and Gift of righteousness by Grace be unto you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I have the urge to post this again following the outcome of some of the arrests made during to August UK riots verifying the fact that many of those arrested have been involved with the criminal justice system prior to the riot. I clearly stated this in one of the August 2011 newsletter which was confirmed following the trials of those arrested during the riot.
Today is 10 August 2011. Over the past 3 days there have been riots all over the United Kingdom especially in cities. These stealing, killing and destructive fires are evil works of Satan and his cohorts. However I will rather look at what the Lord is doing. I believe that the Lord Himself is ready to light up the United Kingdom and indeed the British Isle with the life giving, peaceful restoring fire of the Holy Spirit in His Love and Mercy. Jesus said, the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy but He says I come to give LIFE and give it more abundantly. This is what God is doing through Christ Jesus in our generation.
10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Politicians are spitting fire but never say what exactly they are going to do. Those who perpetrate evil do so most times because they know they will get away with it. Some of those arrested may have done it often times. The police, probation, courts and prison even know them. Even the police cells are full. The politicians have not said exactly what they will do to prevent such recurrence. It happens in small pockets on a daily basis. People are menacing, threatening, killing and terrorising others on a daily basis. Gangs run our streets daily and it looks like they are getting away with it and nothing anyone can do but sometimes just hide in your homes. We all know that. The bigger picture we see are the tiny pockets happening daily in our streets. They have been getting away with such, but the current national outburst is just an opportunity to amplify what is already happening at the grass roots which have not been dealt with over the years.
The good thing is that suddenly the church is beginning to realise that we have a huge responsibility in this. There is clarion call everywhere for people to come and pray. However, I do not think this fire brigade approach is what God has called us to. As Christians, we are to passionately pray for the Government, all people, the nations on a daily basis. No special meetings or waiting for crisis but regularly and daily crying to God for the nation. God has given great responsibility to the Church to be in warfare not for our corners but the nation. This is our land. It is a choice. God wants us to pray for peace and healing in the land. When the whole land prospers, we will enjoy it, our children will enjoy it. Let this current crisis open our eyes to see that when the whole land suffers, even if it does not affect us directly it affects us indirectly. For instance, why pray for your family alone, why not pray for all families, all children, all youths knowing that they are our children, our youths etc. That can go for anything. For instance if you do not have a job, why not pray for jobs for all and when God answers, you will have a job, your children will have a job etc. The Bible says that the husbandman who is labouring will be the first partaker of the fruit. If you are barren, why not pray for all barren women.
2 Chronicles 7:14:
14If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (NOTE: GOD SAYS IT IS US WHO WILL TURN FROM OUR SELFISH WICKED WAYS of FIGHTING OUR CORNERS AND SEEK GOD FOR THE WHOLE LAND)
7And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. (Often we pray for our own captivity rather than the city or nation – There is the solution right here in this verse) Seek means daily yearning, your agenda that is what you desire most in your innermost heart. Seeking after our own captivity is so entrenched in the heart of saints now that it takes God’s grace to drive home this simple truth because of goody, goody soothing sermons)
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
That the church is gathering to pray now is a very good thing but let us make this a wake up or clarion call to make this a regular SERIOUS agenda in the church away from our selfish frenzy to fight our corners which we call warfare.
As it is written My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations (all people). We are the house of God individually and corporately. When we take on God’s territorial agenda, He automatically releases the blessings on all of us. If a nation’s army is going to war, that nation is responsible for the victuals or needs of the army whether spiritual or otherwise including personal needs. Men and brethren, personal needs which God says are additions according to Mathew 6:33 (very clear and simple) are what we have pursued and prayed vigorously and passionately on for years and we continue to do so leaving God’s agenda. I have emphasised certain things in the Scripture below
24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? (Guess what? This is exactly what we do every day, every Sunday, every prayer meeting etc - taking thought of our lives)
31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (Automatic blessing as we seek God)
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. (We minister have not allowed this truth to sink into the body of Christ because of our goody soothing gospel we preach)
34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (In a nut shell seek God and His kingdom daily and leave all the hassle to God)
We may say we don’t do that but let us check our prayer lists. It is time for the full and true gospel of the Kingdom which is that God wants His peace and loving influence around us, those around us and in the nations. We are heaven’s ambassadors to promote heaven’s agenda not ours. We must take our stand. The weapons of our warfare are not visible to the eyes but they are mighty through God. It is time to do away with personal selfish agenda. We cannot afford to sleep or keep our corners as watchmen when beasts are devouring the land. Wake up!!
9All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
10His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
11Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
12Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.
No special meetings or waiting for crisis to pray for our nations but a regular passionate daily cries to God until we see a whole nation turn to Christ, this is why I believe our fervency God has given us by His grace especially immigrants is for the nations where we are now. We have PUSHED until something happened to us now it is time to PUSH until it happens to a nation and all people. Yes we can. We can do all things through Christ.
This year makes 400 years of the KJV version of the Bible from Hampton Court and it is prophetic like Biblical Egypt and I believe and feel the Lord is ready to speak to every spiritual pharaoh through the Church at such a time like this – “Let my people go that they may worship me”. United Kingdom was built on Christian principles. The Lord will bring the politicians to their knees until they realise that they have to open the doors to Christ again and the nation begin to return to the legacy of their fathers – THE WORD and CHRIST, which has been neglected for years. Even the anthem says it all. God will indeed save the Queen and all the people of this land, United Kingdom and the British Isles from any terror but we need to cry to the God of heaven.
We pray that the altars be brought back to the schools, prayers, the Bible, Godly assemblies etc to be restored so we can raise Godly youths who have the fear of God. We are not perfect but we can say that schools in which such Christian principles are practiced do well both morally and academically. I cannot speak for other faith because I do not have such competence.
We pray that the restoring life giving fire of the Holy Spirit sweep across the land in revival fire outbursts all over the nation to replace these stealing, killing and destructive strange fires Satan and his cohorts are lighting all over the land. This is our land. It is time the Church takes responsibility. Every place where the soles of our feet have treaded, God has given unto us to cherish, cover with prayer and enjoy in peace. This nation is our responsibility. Every day is a day of prayer for this nation and the government.
Let us pray, fast and speak good always for the land and according to 2 Chronicles 7:14, the Lord wants the land healed, not just our corners.
God bless you for setting aside time to pray for ALL people and the nation and let this be our eternal goal not just a crisis intervention plan – a nation or a people of God seeking God’s goodness and peace for all other nations of the world wherever we are. As a nation or people of God we already have Jesus who is the peace and goodness of God unto us and God’s delight and our desire is that other nations enjoy what we have.
1 Timothy 2
1I exhort therefore, that, FIRST OF ALL, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made FOR ALL MEN; (THERE IT IS AGAIN – GOD SAYS FIRST OF ALL AND HE SAYS FOR ALL MEN NOT AGAINST)
2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (THE REASON WE PRAY FOR ALL IS THAT GOD WANTS ALL MEN SAVED)
