A Shift Is Coming - A New Normal? A few things you can do to make a difference!

(If you didn't read the last post from Sunday, please scroll down-very interesting)

A shift is coming... will there be a new normal?

For the past several years, anyone who watches the news or is in tune to God's voice, realizes we are in perilous times.  Our economy is on the verge of collapse, our government is doing some crazy things and well life as we know it is changing.  Our freedoms are being stripped away little by little, in reality they have been stripped a lot farther than you even know.

The Lord has been revealing to me and countless others for years that things are changing in America.  Life as we know it, is changing and will be, beyond our recognition.  We might just have to adjust to a new normal?   1 Cor 13:9 says we know in part and we prophesy in part.  I cannot tell you exactly what is coming, but the Lord spoke to me that a "shift" is coming to the earth, more specifically to America.  I believe He told me that things are going to happen suddenly, one thing after another.  My sense is things are happening soon.  I heard the song "People Get Ready"  This song kept playing over and over in my head.  Now I don't know or think that Jesus is coming back now (based on the song), I just sensed it was a play on words that we are too take God's warnings serious.   He also said that there are many who are in denial and many will be caught off guard.  Some things will be scary but take heart, He says.  God has raised up people who "are" prepared.  For those who are, you will reap a great harvest.  He says "you are ready".  He says call forth those things that are not as though they are and they will come into being (Rom 4:17).  Not name it claim it kind of calling forth but call forth those things in which He has personally promised you!  Stand on them, believe and you will receive!

The Lord further said the enemy cannot steal from us (or this country) any longer but first we must draw a line in the sand.  We have to decide which side we are on.  God vs Devil.  Approximately 80% of America says they are "Christians."  Who are they fooling?  Not God!  We cannot say we follow Christ and continue to follow the way and values of the world.  We are to be set apart!  The things we say, the things we do, the way we dress, the way we act are to be different then the world!   1 Peter 1:16 since it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy."   We have been desensitized to holy living!  Our lives should be a living sacrifice to the one true God of Jesus Christ and to live for Him and serving others!  Instead, we have chosen to live life for ourselves, our children, our desires!  The time is now to choose God vs Devil!  Which side are you on?

I've been meditating in Isaiah 54 for a week or so and the Holy Spirit highlighted some key verses that apply to the times coming!  Verse 9-10 Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you.  We need to understand that what is coming is NOT God's judgement on us!  It may be consequences for the sins we have committed individually and as a nation but know that you know it is NOT God's judgement.   God is not angry at us - He just cannot tolerate sin!  We can humble ourselves before the Lord and ask God to reveal how we need to repent and then do it!  Repent means turn and run the other way! When we all choose to do this, God will heal our land - 2 Chron 7:14.

Verse 10 For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain.  My covenant of blessing will never be broken, says the Lord, who has mercy on you.   We must remember that nothing we can do or say will ever separate us from the love of God!  His love is everlasting and He is faithful.  He has a covenant on us and this nation of blessing!  We must do our part so He can fulfill His part!  Sin separates us!!!

So, what can you do?

First, we need to know and believe that GOD IS IN CONTROL.  He is on the throne and nothing that happens doesn't get by Him.   Matthew 6:33 Seek ye the Kingdom of God first and His righteousness and all things will be added unto you.

Next, we need to seek His face and repent for the part we have played in our nations chaos!
(debt, greed, selfish ambitions, lusts of the flesh, worldly ways and values - keeping up with the Jones's, etc) 2 Chronicles  7:14

Third, we need to choose to spend each day in the Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to change our behaviors and actions.  Rom 12:2  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.   You've heard the saying GIGO - Garbage In, Garbage Out!  Fill your mind on things that are good and pleasing to the Lord!

Last but definitely not least - we need to submit, surrender and sacrifice our every day lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.  We must serve Him and love others!   This is the greatest commandment of all!

 Luke 10:27
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.  
I end with a couple quotes!
