In America, God was Invited Back Today!

In America today, we had an amazing event: a Presidential Inauguration. But it was much more than just ceremony and patriotic displays – our Lord, Jesus Christ, was invited into America again.
Not everyone was happy about it, but that’s to be expected. But no longer do we have a President who says he will stand with Islam if the wind shifts. We have someone who invited Christ to protect us. 
Islamic leaders demanded Donald Trump remove Franklin Graham from the lineup of Clergy. He refused. Many evangelicals condemned Paula White-Cain as one of his clergy choices. But she has been instrumental in praying for him and has been a friend for several years, so that didn’t happen either. Faithfulness on display for all to see.
Two of the clergy who prayed today were Charismatic, signifying that the Holy Spirit is welcome.  A Rabbi was invited to pray, signifying that Israel is welcome. The others shared Scripture and prayers of blessing and wisdom…many in Jesus’ Name. Only Christian clergy and one Rabbi were invited.
If you are among those bitter and angry that Donald Trump was elected, then it’s time to repent and check your hearts. We must all stand together as the church. There is much to do now, and we must listen closely to the heart of the Father. We must remove all strife, bitterness, anger, division, hatred from among us.
Let us not be as Joshua was, with a major victory at Jericho, and then a defeat at Ai (Joshua 7:2-5). It’s time to pray for our leaders, pray for each other, and be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Love, Faye

The Lion of Judah

The creator of the featured photo sent me a lovely print because when I looked at the white lion looking up with the light touching his face, I saw Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Amazingly, that’s also what he envisioned when he saw how his photo came out.
As we traverse this difficult time in history, when wickedness abounds and things seem upside down, picture Jesus as the Lion of Judah. His Presence is powerful, and nothing can touch us without His permission. He died and rose again for us…to be His friends is a remarkable blessing.
And He roars so that all around Him can hear when someone tries to harm His beloved. (That’s you!)
We have the King of kings, the Great Creator as our friend. He is exceedingly dangerous to others…but loving and merciful to us. It is amazing to think about. Surrounded by the angels and living creatures of the Throne Room, engulfed in majesty so mind boggling we cannot comprehend it.
So don’t be afraid of what is coming, or what is happening. Snuggle up to the Lion of Judah and listen to His heartbeat.  He will never leave you nor forsake you. Love, Faye

Are You Listening to the Lion of Judah?

“Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s children hall bow down before you. Judah is a lion’s whelp;from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him?” Genesis 49:8,9
This passage is where we obtain the knowledge that Jesus is the Lion of Judah. 
My question to all of you today is: are we walking in His likeness, are we listening to his voice?
In this day in which we live, the sound of God’s Voice is more important than ever before. We must know the difference between the roaring of the enemy and the roaring of the Lion of Judah.
The enemy comes with the sound of defeat, panic, hopelessness, and fear. 
Jesus comes with the sound of power, victory, and hope. When our Lion roars we can be confident that He is claiming us as His own, and He will defend and protect us in these perilous times.
Our part is to love Him, obey His voice, and stay close. Love, Faye
