The Church “Will” Become a House of Prayer in Order to Survive!


The Church Will Be A House of Prayer

The Church “Will” Become A House of Prayer
Jesus Christ turned the tables over in His Father’s House, and He said that His House would no longer be a den of thieves but a house of prayer.
Instead, many churches have become businesses with tax exemption.
Many countries are suffering great injustices toward the helpless and the innocent,
The churches are thriving in these countries, but the people are in great peril and persecution.
The churches are not praying in most cases or these countries would become righteous, and the suffering of the poor and innocent would be stopped.
The church as a whole is not using its awesome power of prayer.
We have been given all authority over the enemy Satan and our own flesh, but we have to activate our power through believing prayer.
Each week, churches all over the world are given the perfect opportunity to pray together in one accord.
There would need to be several prayer leaders who have the burdens to pray, and then all would agree with the prayer leaders.
One will put one thousand to flight and 2 ten thousand. How powerful would that be each week?
What love, unity, victory and peace that would bring into the churches.
We read in Jeremiah 23 and Ezekiel 34 that God will raise up a church in the last days that the gates of hell will not be able to prevail against.
What will be a sign of this last day church?
The ministers in the glorious last day church will care for that one soul. They will be willing to leave the 99 and go out and find the one soul that is in trouble.
The last day pastor will be like our Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ, and he will be will to lay down his life for one soul, just like Jesus Christ was willing to lay down His life for one soul.
How do we get from here to there? How do we get from a church that is carnal and like the Laodiceans church to the glorious last day church?
It is through prayer. The prayer of the righteous avails much.
However, when you have many righteous praying together, daily and weekly; it will transform the world.
It will change the Government, the people, the businesses and the morals of all of the societies all over the world.
We must find leaders who will lead by example. Those who take on the role as servant, and those who will deny themselves, take up their crosses and follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
The church and the Body of Christ has all of the power in heaven and earth given to us by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, the blood of the Lamb and the Word of God.
We pray and we move upward and outward from a position of 100% VICTORY.
Jesus Christ has already won for us everything that we, our churches, our families, our nations need for a life of abundance, righteousness and success.
All we have to do is appropriate the total provision through heartfelt prayer and fasting as needed.
Right now, there are very viable Christian mean and women of integrity who would be good stewards in the high positions of our countries.
However, they cannot do the job without our prayers.
We must pray that God’s men and women will be raised up in each country. Those men and women who will be good stewards of the authority that they have been given.
We must continue praying for them even after they have come into power or they could be put in such a pressure cooker that they could cave.
We all need to pray that almighty God will raise up the prayer warriors, the churches of prayer and the men and women of God who have the boldness and courage to stand strong in these evil last days.
If our current churches become Houses of Prayer; there will be hope for the world.
The anti-Christ system can be thwarted and all of the plans of Satan can be pushed back to Eden.
Satan has targeted the greatest and the best for destruction, but when the church prays; all of his evil deeds will be destroyed.
We need to pray that all of the evil deeds of darkness will be exposed and that Jesus will destroy all of the works of Satan as Jesus came and died to accomplish.
We need to have Godly men and women to be placed in the highest positions, but we also must understand that our battle is not with flesh and blood.
Our battles are with the power, principalities, rulers of darkness and wickedness in high places.
We can only combat these powers through
united prayer.
Wake up churches, and take your places to become Houses of Prayer.
I know for sure, that if the churches in America do not start praying, praying, praying; we will not have any churches where we can prayer.
Righteousness is needed for the effective prayer, and the church also need to repent so that The Lord can heal our land.
There is so much sin in the camp that needs to be purged through solemn assembles to pray, fast and repent.
Then The Lord will be able to restore everything that the canker worm, Caterpillar and locust have eaten.
The Lord want so badly to reward and restore His beloved people, but because of our carnal and Laodicean behaviors;The Lord’s hands are tied.
Our loving, but just God cannot reward rebellion and sin.
We hear many messages of prosperity and the blessings of God, but always remember that every blessing is provisional and condition.
If my people….”humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways, then He will hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our lands”.
God’s promises are based on our obedience, our devotion, our faith and our use of all that we have been given.
God rewards all that diligently seek Him. God’s grace needs our response in obedience guided through our love for God.
We show and prove our love for God by our obedience to His commandments.
Do not be deceived. God is a God of grace and love, but He is also a God of justice and Truth.
My prayer for the church:
Dear Father,
I pray that your people will turn to You with all of our hearts, and we will become the House of Prayer.
Each Christian is a living stone being formed to come together and build the last day glorious church.
Please make all of us into the people after your own heart and a people that will please You, oh Lord.
Please raise up those with a spirit of Joshua, Caleb, Josiah, Jehu, and countless prayer warriors, and worshiper all over the world.
The world is about to get shaken and shaken and shaken and only what is founded on the rock of Jesus Christ will remain.
We pray that we will all be counted worthy to escape what is coming on the earth and be able to stand before the Son of Man.
We thank You Lord with all of our hearts for Your wonderful goodness and mercy. We thank you Father for sending Your Son to die for even one of us sinners. We pray that You, Lord Jesus will receive all the honor and praise for your great and unspeakable sacrifice on the cross in Your Name and by Your blood and according to The Word of God. Amen, amen and amen.
All those who have made The Lord their refuge, their fortress and their everything will be saved. Those who endure to the end will be saved.
Those who work out their own salvation with fear and trembled will receive their reward.
This is not the time to go into apostasy as many churches, but this is the time to turn to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all of our hearts.
May all the churches throughout the world move upward and onward and may they all become glorious Houses of Prayer for all nations in Jesus Name!

Wake Up Church, Rise Up, Conquer all, and Make Yourself Ready!


Wake Up Church, Rise Up, Conquer all, and Make Yourself Ready!
Peggy Kannaday
THE CHURCH:
Matthew 16:
13, Jesus asks His disciples “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?”
“He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (verses 15-18)
The Greek word for Peter is petros which means a small pebble.  However, the Greek word used for rock by Jesus was Petra which means a massive rock.
Jesus Christ is the Chief Cornerstone and The Head of the true church, and Peter is one of the lively stones that form the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 3:11) (1 Peter 1:4-6) (Eph. 1:19-22) (1 Cor. 10:4).
THE HEAD AND CHIEF CORNERSTONE:
JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is the stable power in the church that should rule and reign over the Body of The Church, and He is also the firm foundation of the Church.
Jesus Christ wants His people to become all that they can be through Him.  He wants us to be strong in the inner man, and by faith to be rooted and grounded in His love.  Why?  So that we will be filled with all of the fulness of God.
He is able to do exceedingly above all that we can ask or think according to the power that worketh in us through Christ.  Christ in use; the hope of glory.  All glory goes to Jesus Christ throughout all ages for His wonderful goodness and mercy toward all mankind (Eph. 3:10).

THE BODY: 
LIVELY STONES
1PE 2:5  Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, the Head and Foundation Rock of the Church has provided everything for the believer that is needed for the abundant and overcoming life on this earth.
However, the world system which is headed up by Satanic powers is a controlling entity that wants to manipulate, deceive, suppress, destroy and render powerless all of God’s people and all people because they were created by almighty God.
In the Church, The Lord Jesus Christ must be our authority, and we are called lively stones, because we as Christians are not limited to a church building.  We are to be at liberty to move as the Holy Spirit leads us on a daily basis.
Where the Spirit of The Lord; there is complete liberty.  The Lord does not try and control any person because He want us to voluntarily choose Him and His will every day. 
He wants His people to have the freedom to be led by Him at all times, but there is a strong “control” spirit in some of the churches that wants to hinder the free flowing activities of the lively stones that comprise the Church of The Body of Christ.
Our very lives are to be offered onto the Lord; which is our reasonable sacrifice.  Everything in the Kingdom of God is based on our free will obedience unto the Lord and His commandments.
Jesus Christ wants us to obey Him out of our love for Him, and so we are never forced to obey Him, but all of His commandments are for our own good, and we would be very wise to obey our Lord, Savior and coming King Jesus Christ.
THE BODY OF CHRIST TO BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
RO 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The true sons and daughters of God are the mature Christians that are led by the Holy Spirit of God.  That means that every decision we make should be birthed in and through much prayer and seeking the Father’s perfect will even as Jesus Christ did Himself.
Many Christians’ lives, marriages and futures have been wrecked, simply because they made the wrong decisions, and they did not seek The Father’s will first in their lives.  Always, remember that Father knows best.  Jesus Christ knew this fact, and He always did what His Father revealed to Him.  Hallelujah!
WAKE UP:
Many churches have been asleep for a long time, but praise The Lord; the Church, at least the remnant of the Church is waking up.  When we wake up, then The Lord Jesus Christ will give us His Light. 
When we wake up; then the Lord will be able to redeem the time, the territory and everything that we have lost or have had destroyed by the enemy of our souls.
We are admonished to continually be filled with The Holy Spirit, and we are to rejoice and give thanks unto the Lord for all things.  We are to submit ourselves unto each other in the fear of almighty God.
Eph. 5:14-21,
14   Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15   See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16   Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17   Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18   And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19   Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20   Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
21   Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

RISE UP:
After we, The Body of Christ wake up; we are admonished to rise up from the dead, and then The Light of Jesus Christ will be manifest to us, in us and through us, His people.
We need to let our light shine outward to a lost and dying world.  Pray that the Light, love and Truth of Jesus Christ will be spread throughout our nation, its people and the world.
Ephesians 5:13-14 (King James Version)
 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light
 14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

CONQUER ALL:
We as The Lord’s sons and daughters have been given all power of the enemy.  We more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.  We can do all things through Jesus Christ, and nothing can separate us from Jesus’ love, His Presence and His care for those that love Him and for those who are called according to His glorious purposes.
Romans ;8:37 KJV
37   Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38   For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39   Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
What are we commanded to do with the supreme authority that we have been given by our Lord Jesus Christ? 
We are to take back the lives, the property, the territories, and the atmosphere where the Lord has placed us.  We are not to just sit on our hands and do nothing with the all powerful authority that has been entrusted to the true Christian.
We are to “occupy” until the Lord returns.  He wants us to take the territory; not by physical power but by the Spirit of The Lord. 
Occupy means to take over the pagan elements and destroy them in the spiritual realm, as Josiah did in the physical realm when he was king.  The Christians have the power to bring down all Jezebel, Ahab, witchcraft, sorcery, magic, wizard and all other evil spirits.  We have been given “all” power over the enemy and his demons and those humans that are being demonized.
Luke 19:13
                        
13   And He called His ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

MAKE HERSELF READY:
RE 19:7   Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
JESUS’ PRAYERS:

1.  THE LORD’S PRAYER

When Jesus’ disciples asked Him how to pray; He prayed to His Father, “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven”.  We should pray in like manner every day.

2.  THE LORD’S HIGH PRIESTLY PRAYER

Jesus prayed for The Church His ultimate desire for His beloved people.  He
prayed that we will all be “One” as He is One with God, The Father.  The Lord’s prayers will be a reality, and they will come to pass in God’s perfect timing.  Hallelujah!

JOH 17:11   And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
JOH 17:22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
We need to go to the Lord Jesus Christ to buy from Him, gold refined by the fire, white raiment of purity and eye salve so that we can see the Truth.  We need to ask for wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God must be strong in each one of us.

THE GRAND FINALE:

We are in the last days, and we are in the Valley of Decision.  We need to decide today which team are we going to support. 
The Lord is going to seal all of His servants that have been completely sold out to Him, and they will not suffer the wrath of God when it comes.  However, we are warned not to wait too long to deny ourselves, our own lives, and to take up our crosses and follow Jesus Christ.  Today, is the day of salvation and deliverance.
Choose this day Whom you will serve.  The Church must wake up, rise up, conquer all and make Herself ready for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rev. 19
11   And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12   His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13   And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14   And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15   And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16   And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17   And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18   That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19   And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20   And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21   And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Pastors, Stop Tolerating The Jezebel Spirit!


The Lord Jesus Christ sent messages to the churches. The Lord warned the Church of Thyatira “not” to tolerate the spirit of Jezebel in their churches.
Pastors are forewarned. Why? Because if a pastor is not under the headship of Jesus Christ; he could be seduced into allowing this spirit to function and use their churches as their playground.

Revelation 2:18, “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like unto a flame of fire, and His feet are like fine brass;”

Jesus commends the church of Thyatira for the good works, charity, service, faith and patience that they had demonstrated. These good deeds did not cancel out the offensive tolerance of the Jezebel spirit.

19 “I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.”

Jesus then rebukes this church very severely for her indulgence in allowing the seducing, deceiving and whorish spirit of Jezebel to pull the Christians into immorality, rebellion and idolatry.

20 “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”

You see, the person who carries the Jezebel spirit does not do the works of Satan herself or himself, but they use their followers to do their dirty work in their area of influence. The original Jezebel used her “prophets”, and her followers to have Naboth murdered and to confiscate his property.

Those with the Jezebel spirit today, use their coven, cult, secret society, followers and hirelings to do their bidding. Jezebel herself controls others through witchcraft, sorcery and all types of spells, incantations and rituals. She does not expose her true character to others; she only uses anyone who will come under her control.

Wherever she lives; she brings corruption, deceit, deception, mind control, confusion, and her greatest delight is in leading innocent people to the slaughter.
She may appear to the public as an upstanding citizen due to her ability (spells, etc.) to acquire the money and pretige of men who have some authority.

Jezebel poses as a Prophetess, and she also pretends to be a very loving, caring person due to the authority she has worked so hard to attain through her Ahabs and followers. She sends out her seducing spirits that attack the minds and hearts of her victims, and many have been led into perdition by the Jezebel spirit which is a world power.

Jesus even gives witches such as Jezebel time to repent. However, she did not repent. Her pride, stubbornness, self-centered lusts, and her desire to deceive innocent people and lead them to the slaughter were too great.

21 “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.”

The Lord Jesus Christ clearly tells the church exactly what will happen to her and those who are lured into her web of deceit. She uses witchcraft, sorcery, lies, and men in authority in the church to accomplish her insidious and hellish purposes.

22 “Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.”

The Lord Jesus Christ will destroy Jezebel’s children and the churches that allow her to deceive His beloved children will be judged and justice will be served.

Beware of all the self-appointed prophets, prophetesses, apostles, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and elders. I have found that some of these self-appointed “Ministers” are actually sons and daughters of hell, and they will go across the ocean to make even one convert to themselves.

23 “And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”

The Lord Jesus Christ is going to purge, purify and cleanse His church before He returns. Why? Because He is not coming back for a harlot, but for a pure and holy bride.

The Lord is about to vomit out of His mouth all of the hypocrites in the churches in America. The hypocrites are the lukewarm, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, the occupants of the dens of thieves which some churches have become. The Lord is going to spew out of His mouth the churches that have taken a loathsome witch and made her their prophetess.

I know of a church in my area that is little more than a coven, but they continue to deceive countless Christians into believing they are a cutting edge ministry. They lie about their numbers, they lie about their power and they are leading many to the slaughter through deception involved with witchcraft and sorcery.

If you are going to a church that allows the Jezebel spirit free reign, and allows sexual predators to have free access to the children in their schools and to hold leadership positions, where fornication, adultery, doctrines of demons, and every evil work of darkness runs rampant; get out before it is too late.

When you submit to those Satanic spirits; they will permeate your very life, and lead you into total destruction unless you wake up and repent.

Pastors and ministers must be above reproach. Why? Because if they have any area of weakness; the Jezebel spirit will come to them and twist them around her finger.

How? She uses many methods, and she is a real wheeler and dealer. She loves to pretend to bring great financial benefits to the targeted church, to support the church, to advertise for the church, and to appear to be a wonderful Christian leader who loves the pastor and the people. That is how she uses the weaknesses of the pastors who are not dead to the love of money, lusts of every type and who can be deceived through flattery, lies and the spirit of manipulation.

She gains her prestige, money and power by latching on to a man who is unscrupulous, but is also wealthy and has some power. She uses his power, money and any prestige that he has for her own selfish ambitions and to deceive.

If a leader does not have a high level of character, discernment, and morality; he could be led down a garden path that will end in disaster. Jezebel is there to lie, manipulate, kill, steal and destroy, just as her master. She is a servant of Satan, but she comes as an angel of light.

Do not be deceived. Pray that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of the Lord will raise up a mighty standard against her and all of her works.

Please pray that her witchcraft, sorcery and rituals will be rendered powerless by the Blood of The Lamb, Jesus Christ. Pray that she will be exposed for who she is in your area, so that the young and uninitiated will be under the Lord’s protection.

Pray for your family members, church members and everyone in your area; as she attacks all true Christians, their families, and their friends. She cannot stand true Christians, and she despises any person she cannot manipulate. She hates any person that tries to live a godly life in Christ Jesus, and she will persecute and even try to kill that person as the Biblical Jezebel tried to kill Elijah.

Please plead the blood of The Lord Jesus over your churches, your homes, your area, and all of the people so that they will not be under the horrible deception, confusion and mind control of the Jezebel spirit.

Dear Father,
I pray that the men and women of God in the churches will no longer allow the Jezebel spirit to function in their churches. I pray that all of the anti-Christ infiltrators, coven, cult and secret society members will be discerned, and they will not be allowed to have positions of authority in the churches. Please protect the children from the sexual preditors that are in the worldly, carnal churches.
I pray that the people in your area will be covered with a fiery hedge and that all of the truth will be exposed about everything that is being done covertly, and everything that is being whitewashed will be revealed.
Thank You Father, Thank You Lord Jesus for raising up a mighty standard against the evil in our area, and come Holy Spirit to move upon the hearts and minds of the people. Save Thy people Oh, Lord God!
In The Name which is above every name in heaven and earth, Jesus Christ’s and all for His glory. Amen and amen.
