A Call To The Church In America To Prepare For War!
By Peter Michael Martinez
Followers and disciples of Jesus Christ from every background, ethnic group, nationality, gender, and affiliation are all soberly starting to awaken to the true state of our world.
Zechariah prophesied about this time saying …
Zechariah 12:1-3 “The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”
We just witnessed the leader of the nation of Israel came to address the seat of global power on the eve of Purim to petition for the survival of Israel. YHWH God has declared that Jerusalem shall be a “cup of trembling” for the nations.
How many do not even know that story of Purim … much less the prophetic pictures being paraded before the world at the appointed time …
How many missed the type and shadow … and do not discern the times.
When the leader of the United States of America visited Israel on Passover 2013, he was greeted with song, he was celebrated, he was given Israel’s highest medal of honor, and there was much fanfare and great reception.
For the students of bible prophecy who have been keeping their eyes on the harbingers of judgment upon the nations, and especially America, the public snubbing of the Prime Minister of Israel is only the tip of the iceberg of the contempt growing in our nation toward Israel, the Jews, and Christians alike.
We are witnessing a transformation of America into a nation that once fostered and cultivated the Gospel ministry to a nation quickly shifting from tolerance to persecution.
The atmosphere toward the Church, Christianity, Israel, the Jews, and indeed all of Israel and her seed is increasingly hostile. Should we be surprised?
Revelation 12:17 “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
The Redeemed should NOT be surprised that the tide is turning against the true born again believers. This is the one group with the power, authority, and weaponry in the spirit that can mount a successful campaign against the prince of the power of the air.
The ONLY group of people who have authority over principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness and wickedness in high places is the Redeemed, blood bought, born again, Spirit Filled, gift enabled, activated saint of the most High God.
When the Redeemed put on their armor and use the weapons given at Calvary, death must yield. Hell has no counter to the UNITED offensive of the Redeemed. Unto the Redeemed is given power to tread on serpents, scorpions, and all the power of the wicked one and the demonic realm lacks the authority to stop the Church.
But they don’t have to … because much of the Church is asleep.
With the exception of a Remnant (a small portion of the larger group) the vast majority of disciples are ambivalent about world affairs, bible prophecy, ministry, or even the gospel.
For many, the message of salvation is like a fire insurance policy that you buy once and put away for safe keeping.
With so few actually using the weapons, gifts, and authority granted at Calvary to the Redeemed, the adversary is taking undefended cities and establishing strongholds in places once held by believers.
Storm Clouds Gathering!
Right now across the world the level of conflict between the forces of Good and Evil is increasing and humanity hangs in the balance. This entire thing called “life on Earth” is about to go through a complete transformation. Jesus warned us about these days saying as the days of Noah were, so these days would be.
The enemy is filling more and more people to do horrific evil and training to do even more evil. Look and see for yourself how wicked your world has become!
Evil is organizing. Evil is gathering forces, people, strength, resources, and resolve. The forces of darkness are coming for one group. The Redeemed.
A Call To The Redeemed!
So now a call goes out to the saints of the Most High God around the world who have been asleep and taken for granted that all would simply continue as it always has … take heed.
The time has come that your King calls you to the watch. It is the time in the grand stage of History when we are about to witness the greatest transformation our world has ever seen since its Creation.
If you are among the Redeemed, blood bought, sanctified, set apart, sealed, born again, Holy Spirit filled, gift enabled, saints of the Most High God who would finish your race well … this message is for you.
Here are three things you must now do IMMEDIATELY!
- Pray! Ask the Father to show you where you belong!
- Go there and present yourself for service!
- Work in any way you can together with your brothers and sisters in the Gospel to finish your race well.
I’m not suggesting you join a Church and just go to meetings each week. While that is good and has some value, we’re running short on time to be just thinking about casual church attendance.
Hebrews 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
At this point you need to get sharp. If you’re a veteran and have been walking with the Holy Spirit for a while then you’ll be helpful in discipling others who need help and encouragement in being led by the Holy Spirit.
If you’re a new believer and you are just learning about the Kingdom of Heaven then you will need to connect quickly with a Holy spirit filled, demon chasing, sickness healing, prophesying, gift enabled, born again believers in Jesus Christ and learn as much as you can as fast as you can.
This is true survival training. If you wish to be among that group of people who are “alive and remain unto the coming of the LORD” you had better get in spiritual and mental shape for the next leg of this journey and use this time wisely.
Holy Spirit Training Meetings Going On Now!
Did you know that in every metro area across the world and in places you would never dream the Holy Spirit is gathering people in groups small and large to prepare people for overcoming persecution, spiritual warfare, and survival training?
Public meetings are connecting points for those who are truly interested in following the LORD and being found faithful. In these gatherings the Holy Spirit will be gathering all the fivefold, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers, and all the administrations of the Spirit.
These gatherings are more than a time of worship, teaching and encouragement, but also a time when people can Team Up with everything from Prison Ministry, Home Fellowships, Outreach, Evangelism, private teaching, pastoral care, prophetic ministry, advanced ministry training and much more as the Holy Spirit leads.
If you’re going to “church” and you remain deactivated week after week despite “being fed” then you will have a hard time being an overcomer in the day of trouble we all may soon face.
If instead you are being ACTIVATED as a PART of the church and starting to move into what you were born and created by God to do, then you will grow stronger in the Spirit through each season.
Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Regardless of the size of the meeting, the KING of KINGS promises to attend.
Now … consider …
If the KING of all Glory can make it … with everything that is on HIS schedule these days … what’s our excuse?
The Redeemed do not have to be made to gather … they do not require bribing, or enticing, trickery, or gimmick … for the things of Earth lose more luster every day …
The Redeemed gather because it’s Time.
Jeremiah 23:3-4 “And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.”
