Consecration Day 15-16:
Praying through all the mess -
Last night my young great-nephew, Alberto was robbed at gun point while working his way through college with hopes of being a doctor. He's fine, money taken, no arrests,
But what about the incidence that leave someone maimed or dead? His mother, Stephanie Igwebuike posted her praise report for her son's life and safety today shown below. Church it's pass time for us to pray.
In a move of the power of God, Lionel Rush presented this open letter recently:
WHEN THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD MOVED UPON ME TO SPEAK TO ME. THE HOLY SPIRIT SAID TO ME, THAT SOME OF THE TRAGIC CONFUSION THAT HAS OCCURRED IN THIS NATION ARE/WERE:
April 24, 2016: Mark Storms fatally shot 27-year-old Robert Braxton III during Sunday services in a suburban Philadelphia church. Storms, 46, argued self-defense, but was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter.
Aug. 9, 2016: A shooting during a party at a Jersey City, New Jersey, church left 17-year-old Leander Williams dead and two teenage girls wounded. Daequan Jackson, 18, was charged with murder.
Aug. 13, 2016: Imam Maulana Alauddin Akonjee and his friend Thara Uddin were fatally shot as they left a New York City mosque. Oscar Morel, 35, was charged with second-degree murder.
Sept 24, 2017: Emanuel Kidega Samson, 25, was charged with killing a woman and wounding six other people with gunshots at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Nashville, Tennessee.
Nov. 5, 2017: Dressed in black tactical-style gear and armed with an assault weapon, 21-year-old Devin Kelley opened fire at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 others.
June 17, 2015: Nine black worshippers including a pastor were killed by Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old white supremacist, after he prayed with them for nearly an hour.
The shooting happened at historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. Roof was convicted of federal hate-crime and obstruction-of-religion charges and sentenced to death.
THE TRAGIC SHOOTING AT MOTHER EMANUEL AME CHURCH SEEMED A BRIDGE WAY TOO FAR..YET AGAIN AND AGAIN, PRIOR TOO, AND AFTER THAT INCIDENT, WE SAW THIS REPREHENSIBLE TREND CONTINUE. THE THING IS, AS TRAGIC AS THESE SHOOTINGS WERE AND ARE, THE DEVASTATION THAT IS UPON US HAS NOT JUST RESTRICTED IT SELF TO “MASS SHOOTINGS,” teenage party dresses
BUT, WE AS THE CHURCH COMMUNITY ARE BEING ASSAULTED IN MANY OTHER DEBAUCHED WAYS. THE LORD WARNED ME OF A COMING STORM THAT WE IN THE CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST COULD NOT AND WILL NOT ESCAPE BUT FOR HIS SUGGESTION OF HOW TO AVERT THIS TRAGEDY.
SO, HERE IS WHAT THE LORD SAID TO DO:
THE LORD SAID THAT WE SHOULD TAKE THREE DAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF JANUARY 2018. THAT WE SHOULD COME TOGETHER EACH OF THOSE NIGHTS AT ONE OF OUR CHURCHES; AND, THAT WE SHOULD SPEND TWO HOURS IN PRAYER FOR EACH OF THOSE THREE NIGHTS. ADDITIONALLY, THERE SHOULD BE FASTING GOING FORWARD ON THOSE DAYS.
THE DAYS THAT I LOOKED AT WERE:
JANUARY 23RD, 24TH AND THE 25TH —THESE DAYS ARE— TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, AND THURSDAY—@-6:45 P.M. TILL 8:45 P.M.
THE PURPOSE OF THESE PRAYER SERVICES:
THESE SERVICES ARE EXPECTED TO BE ‘PASTORAL” PRAYERS…ALL MAY ATTEND BUT GOD HAS CALLED TOGETHER HIS SHEPHERDS TO PRAY AS PRIEST/PROPHETS
THE GUIDING SCRIPTURES FOR THESE PRAYER SERVICES ARE:
*LEVITICUS 9: 23—MOSES AND AARON THEN WENT INTO THE TENT OF MEETINGS. WHEN THEY CAME OUT, THEY BLESSED THE PEOPLE; AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD APPEARED TO ALL THE PEOPLE.
*NUMBERS 12:4 AT ONCE THE LORD SAID TO MOSES AARON AND MIRIAM, “COME OUT TO THE TENT OF MEETING, ALL THREE OF YOU. “SO THE THREE OF THEM WENT OUT.
*NUMBERS 20: 6—MOSES AND AARON WENT FROM THE ASSEMBLY TO THE ENTRANCE TO THE TENT OF MEETING AND FELL FACEDOWN, AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD APPEARED TO THEM.
*I TIMOTHY 2: 1-3—FIRST OF ALL, THEN, I URGE THAT SUPPLICATIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSIONS, AND THANKSGIVINGS BE MADE FOR ALL PEOPLE,
FOR KINGS AND ALL WHO ARE IN HIGH POSITIONS, THAT WE MAY LEAD A PEACEFUL AND QUIET LIFE, GODLY AND DIGNIFIED IN EVERY WAY.
THIS IS GOOD, AND IT IS PLEASING IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOR. WHO DESIRES ALL PEOPLE TO BE SAVED AND TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
