  • Apostasy and the great turning away!

Lord, we come before You Father God and thank you that we are told to come boldly to the throne of grace. We thank you there is no shifting shadow nor turning in You. That Your Word is higher than Your name and that You know all things and see all things. We are confounded by the great falling away of Christian leaders, but we know that You know the end from the beginning and these situations are no surprise to You.

Your Word says in 2 Tim 3 the Apostle Paul tells us that “Difficult Times Will Come”
“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these… Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance, persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me …Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Father, many have been upset and deeply affected by the apostasy of Joshua Harris and the worship minister from Hillsong. We ask that You open the eyes and ears of those affected who may have allowed themselves to be so easily led astray Lord, forgive us all for our laziness and unwillingness to call out the truth. Jesus firmly stated in Matt 24:4 “See to it that no one misleads you.”

Lord, Paul warned us in 1 Tim 4:1-2 “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron…” And in Romans 1:21 “For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him or give thanks, but became futile in their speculations and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

And more explicitly Lord, Your Word says in Hebrews 6: 4-6 “For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers in the Holy Spirit and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come and then have fallen away it is impossible to renew them again to repentance since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.” We release this situation to You Lord, we believe Your Word and ask for protection around the hearts and minds of all who know You that they would continue in Your Truth and not follow the path of anyone other than You!

For Alaska Lord we speak to the fires and command them to cease. We call in the funds to cover the fire service management, now in excess of $29 million dollars.

This week our schools are reopening and pray for protection over every school house, we call in the ministering angels to line up around each property perimeter, from roof top to foundation, window to window, door to door and wall to wall. We call in the protection from the Most High God to keep innocent blood from being shed.

We call in doors to open that NO MAN MAY CLOSE for Alaska’s economic development of our abundant natural resources. It seems every time we think we are making strides forward that we are thwarted by more legal injunctions against harvesting YOUR natural resources. Lord we know that those who do not know You are futilely attempting to set up their own utopia on this earth. You sit in the heavens and laugh knowing this is impossible for man. We are charged with stewardship over the land in Genesis 1:28. We ask that you show us the way, make a way in the wilderness and open up the rivers in the desert. Alaska needs to be released from these environmentalist’s attacks and to move forward to righteously steward the harvest of the timber, gas, oil and rare earth minerals You blessed us with. Father we are asking for a solution to these egregious stalemates.

In our school systems Lord we ask that you show us how to return prayer into the school houses and Bibles back into the classrooms. Our youth are not taught any righteous boundaries and continue to be ensnared in the agenda of the progressives.

Proverbs 22: 6 says “train up a child in the way he should go even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Youth is the time for training and we are asking for insight and knowledge on how to move this forward through the School Boards, administrations and unions. Nothing is impossible with You Lord. We are happy to do the work, as directed by You, resting in the assurance that You will make a way where we see no way.

Father God we thank you for hearing our prayers and raising us up to new levels of leadership in our homes and communities. Thank you for your goodness, presence and power. We give you all the Glory, in Jesus Name we pray. Amen and Amen!!!
