THE CHURCH, THE BRIDE OF CHRIST (PART 3)
THE CHURCH AS THE WATCHMAN (1)

Continued from Part 2

nation cannot completely survive or succeed without the Church. In my previous articles, I mentioned according to the word of God that the Church is the salt and the light of the world (Mathew 5: 13-16). The world lies in wickedness and stumbles in gross darkness, but through the Church, the Lord reveals His purpose and plans and continues to uphold and preserve the nation through the persistent intercessory prayers and the righteousness of the Church. Salt is for preservation, and so the Lord through the Church preserves the nation from decay and destruction.

Before the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, Isaiah prophesied that "the government shall be upon His shoulder... and of the increase of His government and of His reign there shall be no end" (Isaiah 9:6,7). This shows that the Kingdoms of the world belong to the Lord Jesus Christ and He is the governor among the nations. When King Nebuchadnezzar boasted that the kingdom belonged to him, for he built it by his might, the Lord God decreed that he would turn to a beast for seven years, and feed on grasses until he recognized that the most High reigns in the Kingdom of men and gives it to whomsoever He wills. And just as he dream that the stump of the tree under which the birds of the earth and animals find their food and shield themselves, was left when the tree was cut down, the Lord carefully protected the Kingdom of Babylon and his throne during these seven years he wandered as an animal, so that no one took Nebuchadnezzar's place until he recognized that the Most High has sovereign power and rule over the nations of the world.The Lord restored him to human being. His throne and his counselors were also restored to him, and excellent majesty was added unto him (Daniel 4).

When a nation however, moves out of divine alignment, the glory of God lifts from such a nation and decay sets in. A gap has been created. The devil, the thief begins to steal, kill and destroy such a nation because he has set his throne upon such a nation. God begins to look for someone that will bridge the gap. The righteousness of God demands justice, to punish such a nation for turning away from Him, to pour His indignation upon them and consume such a nation with the fire of His wrath...(Ezekiel 22: 31):but He looks for someone to stand between Him and the nation so He will not destroy it: And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me and the land, that I should not destroy it:...(Ezekiel 22: 30). The Church therefore, is His arm for the rescue and salvation of such a nation. It is written in 2 Chronicles 7: 14, If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then shall I hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I mentioned in Part 1 of this article that the Church is the defense system of the Kingdom of God on Earth completely armed with the whole Armour of God , and with supernatural body guards and securities (angels). She (the Church) is also equipped with the Spirit of God and with the full expressions of the Holy Spirit: Spirit of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, counsel, might, grace and the fear of God. The Lord Jesus gave the keys of the Kingdoms to her (the Church) so that whatever she binds (disallows) on Earth is bound (disallowed) in Heaven and whatever she looses (allows) on Earth is loosed (allowed) in Heaven. She is the Embassy (the representative) of the Kingdom of God on Earth, establishing the will and the purpose of God on Earth, upholding, maintaining and advancing the Kingdom culture on Earth, while pushing back the forces of Hell through the victory given to her. As the watchman therefore, she is fully equipped to rule over the Earth with the King of Kings, enforcing divine agenda and destroying and pulling down the forces of darkness so that the gates of Hell shall never prevail. She has the power of prayer, the anointed word of God, the Blood - and the victorious name of Jesus Christ. Her tongue is her weapon of life and death (Proverbs 18: 21).

As a watchman therefore, she watches over the nation, just the way a security officer its or stands at the gate gate watching over an official building the entire night or day. She sits at the gate of the nation to decide what or who comes in or goes out of the nation; who sits or goes out of the throne of the nation. Because she is consistently watching, when she sees trouble afar off as she stands at the city walls, she blows the trumpet to the watchmen in the city and the gates to prepare for war. Whatever she allows to enter the gates of the city, enters, and whatever she disallows is not allowed because she is backed up by the Kingdom of the One Who gave her the authority. The entire power of Heaven is with her, so that at her mention of the name of Jesus every knee bows.

She is the custodian of divine secrets: "The secret things of the Lord is with those who fear Him and He will show them His covenants"(Psalm 25: 14), and she implements the will and the purpose of God on the Earth realm: "Thy Kingdom come, Thine will be done on earth as it is done in Heaven." Before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the Lord would have suddenly come upon the nation, but He decided to share the secret with Abraham: "Shall I hide from Abraham that which I do..". (Genesis 18: 17). The Lord thus confided to Abraham about His immediate plan for the destruction of the city. Abraham, knowing that the lives of his cousin and his family were in danger, stood in the gap for the city of Sodom and Gomorrah. He started negotiating with God based on His divine justice, the number of the righteous men in a city that would cause Him to avert His anger on such a city.

Last year around March 20th, the Lord said to me that it's time to destroy New York City, because the cry of the city has reached him and the cup of their iniquity was full. I remember sometime in 2011 when 826 same-sex couples were officiated in one night by the New York Mayor. Three weeks later, the Eastern zone of USA shook underneath our feet. It happened under one minute: the beautiful and magnificent buildings shook like leaves, while all the cars I observed that were parked in front of the buildings all shook like toys before my eyes. I was on the phone with another woman of God in a different state when I (we) felt the impact. We began to command the Earth to be still in Jesus name. We cried to God for mercy upon the land. I learnt a lifetime lesson under that one minute that God can open the Earth and dump the whole world under one minute and close it. No one an question Him. He did it in the days of Moses when the sons of Korah challenged the authority of Moses and Aaron in the wilderness (Numbers 16:32). The Earthquake (5.8 magnitude) impacted 22 states of America within those few seconds, and had many after shocks, but the Lord our God held the Earth back from sinking because of His mercy and the cries of the remnant. That was just a divine response to what would continue un-abetted in the whole nation even as the leaders continue to promote and legalize same sex marriage in almost in every state along with abortion.

Meanwhile, (concerning NYC) while asleep the Lord showed me many drunken homeless young men lying down on the streets of NYC, sleeping. He said to me, these are His armies. They are like bones in the dry valley, and will need to be called out of the valley. One of the remedies for NYC would be to bring these out of their conditions into His House, and raise them as armies. He gave me names of three boroughs where these people are. I continued to sense urgency in the spirit concerning the imminent destruction of NYC.

I sent a message to a friend on facebook who lived in NYC at the time to confirm this revelation to me. She sent me statistics of homeless drunkards in NYC, and the very order the Lord gave me was the exact order on the sheet. I could not believe the reality of this. God surely has a need! He is looking for watchmen. As a prophetic watchman, I began to blow the trumpet over the Facebook that God was about to destroy NYC, we need watchmen to stand in the gap for the city.

Because it was a Spring break, I took all my family and drove two hours to vacation in the city. Lodging in one of the hotels in Times square, NYC we visited two of the boroughs revealed to me. I visited Times Square for the first time and saw what I could call "Hollywood" center with all kinds of activities going on there including those large Television screams advertising all sorts of things all over the place; thousands of people from various nations of the world sightseeing. Some ladies were going about completely naked with their bodies decorated with some drawings and making money out of it; some people hold posters that say: "Money for weed". From morning till the next day, all sorts of crazy things happen there, from one end to the other. Walking down from one street to the other was like walking on the streets of Hell with Cinema centers and theater centers with horrible looking drawings. Good looking, able bodied men and women, sitting on side walks holding up signs that say: homeless, help with change! As I observed these thousands upon thousands moving aimlessly all over the place, I knew that if anyone throws a bomb there, thousands will die at once. If any of the tall buildings is hit, many more will collapse and thousands will be buried alive but, these people are the heartbeat of God. He cares for them. He wants them to be reached with the message of His love. I could see the city from God's perspective. I saw dignity and excellence beyond the craziness I was seeing. Well, I already purchased a megaphone, I started shouting the gospel on the streets as multitudes were moving about like sheep without shepherd.

Two or three weeks into blowing this trumpet concerning NYC and the imminent destruction, there was the marathon bombing in Boston that left many people maimed and few dead. Then, they were heading straight to NYC, to Times Square, the very place the Lord pointed to me... to bomb it (just as God revealed to me), praise God for obedience. On their way, they had a shootout with the police, and one of them died. The plan to bomb Manhattan (Times Square and other areas in Manhattan ) was aborted. God cannot do anything without revealing it first, to his servants. His secrets are with those who yield to Him. We walk in partnership with Him. The Bible says that He looked for a man, just one person to stand for the nation so that He will not destroy it. Isaiah cried: "Here am I, send me". Would that be your cry! The whole world is going crazy and multitudes are perishing. Satan is strategically waging war over the souls of men, slaughtering and bringing them to Hell.

When Abraham interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah, He was making his appeals based on divine justice. He continued to reduce the number of the supposed righteous people in a city that could cause God to refrain His anger over such a city, but stopped at ten people. God's justice demanded the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. He could not find ten righteous people, and so Abraham allowed the destruction, but his cousin Lot's family was saved except his wife, who perished because of her worldliness. If Abraham however, had made the appeal based on the mercy of God, He would have spared the city. It is written that mercy triumphs over judgment(James 2: 13). God delights in mercy above sacrifice (Ref. to my book: How Do We Invest In Our Children: sub-title 'Cry of Mercy' [Chapter 2], Amazon.com).

In March 25th, 2014 to be exact during personal prayers on cock row, I was worshiping God when I saw a huge deluge of waters rushing before my eyes, about to sweep away the nation. It was very imminent, about to happen. Again, I blew the trumpet on the facebook and my prayer line for prayer warriors to pick it up. A watchman on the wall foresees trouble and blows the trumpet for those at the city gates and those in the city to be prepared for war. We already have victory through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Many people began to respond, but more in judgment. They were seeing the great evils of America and so it deserves to be destroyed. "God must punish the nation", some said, and "no amount of prayers would save America", they said. Many people are actually in constant expectation of the collapse of America, because of the iniquities that abound in the nation. The next day, my heart became sad over the nation as the Lord continues to reveal more and more destruction that was coming upon her (USA). I saw collapsed buildings, open pipelines, scattered woods, birds that devour human beings flying all over the cities and dead bodies all over the places. The word of God that came to me at this time was Jeremiah 4:22: "For the people is foolish, they have not known me; they are scottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge."

The following is the message I posted on facebook on March 26, 2014:

My heart is heavy, grief tries to seize my soul. I see devastation in America. The whole land looks like a war -torn nation. After the Lord showed me the great ocean coming very close to sweep off America and we began to pray this night, I saw birds, birds that devour human flesh hovering around the city.

The Lord said through Jeremiah: Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words saying the temple of the Lord are these...for if ye thoroughly amend your ways. Then will I cause you to dwell on this place, in the land that I gave to your father's (Jeremiah 7).

Where are the wailing women, says the Lord; who will bear the cause of the Lord? Cry for the land for I will not make an utter end of the land, says the Lord(prophecy).

I am appealing to watchers at the city gates, the watchers on the walls and watchers within the gates to please join me in midnight hours to seek the mercy of God of Heaven for America. Great devastation is coming upon the land, but let us hold unto Him for mercy and for Revival. Please join me. Call me, inbox me. I will let you know the Times of the watches for the nation

Two days later after the warnings, four earthquakes hit some states.

March 28, 14: 5.1M Earthquake occurred at 9:09pm I ile East of La Habra, CA, 3 miles North of Fullerton, CA and 23 miles East of Los Angeles. It was felt throughout Orange ounty, Riverside, and other counties. March 29, 14: At approximately 2:33 PM Pacific Time on March 29, 2014, a magnitude 4.1 earthquake shook the Los Angeles area, one mile south east of Rowland Heights, California, according to the USGS.

3/29/2014 -- 5.4M earthquake strikes Los Angeles -- VOLCANIC movement beforehand

Description:

Undeniable volcanic earthquake movement on March 26, and 27th leading up to this event in Los Angeles. This was forecast to occur.

Between midnight till daylight, more than 60 earthquakes were reported in Los Angeles.

Red Cross opens shelter in La Hebra communty for those impacted by 51 Earthquakes - @CBSLA.

Los Angeles Fire Dept no longer in Earthquake mode, no significant damage reported in jurisdiction, authorities say -NBLA.

We were listening and reading these on the News. Up to four states were hit by these series of Earthquakes between March 26th and March 29th.. The revelation came on the 25th and 26th. Volcanic eruption, series of Earthquakes and Tsunami were the weapons the enemy wanted to use to devastate and sweep off the nation this period, but because of prayers of intercessions, the powerful hands of God held it under control. There was no life lost, no building collapsed, no tsunami experienced, no significant damage done, as we see on the above post. It is not the will of God that any should perish. He is not man, but God. His ways and thoughts are not our ways and thoughts. He is just and righteous. America continues to shake but prayers continue to hold it back. Prayer armies like Chuck Pierce, Dutch Sheets with their armies also continue to march across the land in Prophetic warfare.

I shared those revelations and correspondent actions only to remind us that the Lord can use us to avert the disasters that come upon a nation when we begin to align our individual lives and our nations back to God.

I will momentarily stop here. In Part two of this watchman prayers for the nation, we shall look into how we are to help our nations fulfill their prophetic destiny.

Our Ministry is recruiting armies of the Lord across the globe. If you feel the Lord God calling you to join the end time armies, for the releasing of the prophetic destiny of nations, send email to: hispriestlybride@yahoo.com. You will be ready to organize a group of leaders to be trained to walk on the Apostolic/Prophetic authority and strategic warfare. Righteousness and Holiness is on the plumbline. Watch out for the oncoming book: How to Build the Lord's Armies. We are also looking for partners and sponsors as we march across the globe.
