AN URGENT CALL TO PRAYER: DAY THREE • Anne Graham Lotz

The law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.”

Galatians 3:24, NKJV

“The Christian life is motivated, not by a list of do’s and don’ts, but by the gracious outpouring of God’s love and blessing. We want to live our lives to please God because before Jesus “the law was given through Moses” (John 1:17a, NIV). Think of the law as summed up in the Ten Commandments.

The law didn’t make us feel better. It made us feel worse.

The law didn’t help us to be good. It revealed how bad we were.

The law didn’t give us joy or peace. It made us feel guilty.

The law didn’t help us measure up. It showed us we fall short.

The apostle Paul said the law was like our schoolmaster, teaching us how much we need a Savior. But “grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17b, NIV) because He perfectly fulfills the law. His life measures up to the standard established by the law, and when we receive Him by faith, His righteousness is credited to us. Therefore in Christ we too fulfill the law.” ~Anne Graham Lotz, AnGel Ministries

God’s laws apply to everyone, Christian and non-Christian, and there are consequences for those who violate God’s Law. The good news is that God has provided a way out when we make mistakes, experience failure or sin.

There is natural, physical, law that has been in place since day one of creation.

God gave law to Adam in the garden, Genesis 2: 17, that commanded obedience.

God instructed Moses to write down His Law in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

Romans 1:20 (NIV)

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”

We are without excuse. We should feel convicted over what we see going on around us so let’s be about the business of repenting and seeking God’s forgiveness for the sins of our nation.

I’m stealing a quote my friend, Michelle, posted on FB today: “”Don’t ever hate conviction. Conviction is a real gift from God, because what flows over a soul that understands it is broken is almost always the grace, mercy, and the forgiveness of God, which increases our worship and empowers our obedience. So, don’t despise conviction. It’s a gift.” –Matt Chandler

WAKE-UP TOXIC AMERICA

alarm clock

 

Church, body of Christ, we must repent!

“if my peoplewho are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14

Notice this scripture does not say, “My creation,” “All people,” or “Your nation.” It says, “My people, who are called by my name,” referring to the people who believe in and worship the ONE TRUE GOD.

For the next several days I will be referring to Anne Graham Lotz and her 777 campaign, An Urgent Call to Prayer. I’m sad to say I did not learn of this campaign or listen to Anne Graham Lotz speak at the National Day of Prayer until last Wednesday via god.tv.  God has clearly placed a responsibility on her to sound the alarm to American Christians that judgment is coming.

I was so disappointed to realize I had missed the 7 days of prayer campaign but since God lives in eternity and not in time, and since God knows our hearts, I believe He will still accept our participation; even at a late date.

Are we going to listen to Anne Graham Lotz or are we going to treat her as the Israelites treated the Old Testament prophets.  The people did not want to hear from God through His prophets. The Israelites were enjoying life, becoming complacent and their complacency led to sin. The people did not want burdened with worship, acts of service, repentance, truth or tithes. They wanted to follow false leaders. They forgot the law of sowing and reaping.

As a mom raising children in this generation to understand the Lord’s love for them; to love the Lord, seek Him, and stay pure seems impossible yet my faith is in the Lord. You’ve heard the idiom, “Never place all your eggs in one basket.” Well, I am. I am resolved to make everything dependent on one person, God. I am placing all my resources, energy, talents, gifts, finances, children, my marriage, and my reputation at His feet; my only course of action. I don’t even consider it a risk. I am confident I will reap what I sow.

Surely God must be ready to end this corrupt world where people  who call themselves, “Christian,” devalue life, murder their children while in the womb, crave excessive materialism, live for participation in the next sexual sin , practice deceitfulness as a positive quality trait, and throw off all self-control calling good bad and bad good.

We, the church, are toxic and our toxicity spilled over on those around us. The world became corrupt because God’s people, the church, failed in her mission. We have failed to understand God’s love for us, God’s protection through His laws, and the blessings God wants to pour down on us.
