“Fast Together and Pray” “Testify” “Do it” (Words of Knowledge spoken yesterday afternoon and today).
“Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly (a call to fast in numbers). Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD. Alas for that day! For the day of the LORD is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. Has not the food been cut off before our very eyes (witnessing shortages of food supply)— joy and gladness from the house of our God? (Believers are becoming despondent). The seeds are shriveled beneath the clods.The storehouses are in ruins, the granaries have been broken down (destruction of a great number of food factories in the U.S) for the grain has dried up. How the cattle moan! (large numbers of cattle recently dying of unknown cause.) The herds mill about because they have no pasture (elites are purchasing land for their own purposes and self-serving agenda) even the flocks (the dying of a multitude of chickens recently of supposed viruses) of sheep are suffering (domesticated animals will suffer due to a lack of feed.) To you, LORD, I call (pray) for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness and flames have burned up all the trees of the field. Even the wild animals pant for you (I have seen this in visions) the streams of water have dried up and fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness.” (Joel 1:14-20)
Our precious Lord left us instructions about fasting – it is not a mandated practice of the past. Fasting and prayers keep us close to our FATHER who hears our petitions and reciprocates in accordance with HIS divine Will. It strengthens Believers and detracts powers and principalities that set themselves up against the knowledge of GOD. Together, fasting and prayers from genuine hearts takes captive every thought the enemy is imposing on the Church. It reveals the condition of the human heart and exposes *the enemy’s tactics and work.* If the Lord Himself underscored the importance of fasting and praying to cast out demons, how much more now when the devil is intensifying his latter-day assaults against the inhabitants of the earth, including the Church. (Mk 9:29; Rev. 12:12)
We do not fully know what is taking place behind the scenes, what lurks around the corners and what will happen tomorrow – not even today – but our omniscient GOD does. HE holds today and our future in HIS mighty Hands! And HE wants us prepared. It follows that when there is call and revelation to fast and pray, there is a supreme reason for it.
Christians are not called to be lukewarm, disfigured (Mat 6:16) and non-repented while fasting – it is such a terrible affront to GOD. We form part of a heavenly army of Light that is led by the King and Lord of all, Jesus Christ! If you feel moved by this call, then I am highly encouraging you to pray and fast in whatever capacity you are guided by the Word and Holy Spirit to do so. I am also encouraging you to let others know. Fasting and Prayers are the Believer and Restrainers’ weapons. And there is strength in numbers!
“When there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint” (Prov. 29:18)
I am hearing the Words: “Wisdom” “Protection” “Blessing”. And that all three words mean the same thing.
