Seattle violence & God’s Response – A Modern Day Psalm

Unease with Seattle Violence

Unease with Seattle violence. Also with the complicit nature of the local authority being lock step with the violence. The Media also complicit with the lawless authority. No one calling for justice to represent the righteous ones in the land.  BUT GOD. We need You Lord to intervene in men’s affairs on the earth.

Help Lord

Help us Lord, those who trust in You. To be Your voice in these times and anoint our mouths with Your Words and encouragement as we move swiftly and accurately into the position of Holy Spirit who guides us to take hold.  Let us war with Your sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6) and not relent until this battle for our city and state is overwhelmed and run by Your victory cry.

Seattle the Wayward Child

Seattle is like a wayward child who has lost its way and has become prey for the Powerful and wealthy. Who like a child abuser who uses for evil purposes. Lord reverse these snares onto the ones who set them against the peaceful ones in the land.  Settle our hearts, minds and souls deep into the refreshing waters of Your Spirit and Word.  Let us hear as Your servant listens.

God Answers:

Like in Sodom and Gomorrah I intervened in men’s affairs for good and not evil.  The plans I have for You are for good and not evil.  I AM is bringing RESTORATION.  Your hope is anchored in Me and the works of My hands.  Do not look to man or government but to Me Alone!  I will untangle the mess and bring forth gold.  Stay close to me my beloved one and rest yourself in My Promises.  I AM has your front, sides and rear guard flanked.  Nothing shall touch you.  But stay close to Me and I will show you the way of escape when needed or required.

Till then carry on in hope, peace, gentleness, kindness and love.  These will be my calling card in you that others will see and may even ask you regarding this peace in the midst of such a storm as this.  Tell them about Me.  Be My Witness to the ends of the earth. Speak, Expose and Admonish where necessary, but let LOVE be your driving force.  Lean in and on Me moment by moment and Do Not Relent!  For I AM is with you and not against.  Together we will see the victory – Your eyes will see it. Your heart will know it and your mourning will turn into exceeding, uncontainable, joy.

Trust Me sweet chosen one. Your Father has you in the palm of His hand.  Not one hair on your head shall be touched.  My grace is sufficient for these circumstances too!  Hold Tight.  Remain steadfast and free.  Do not get bogged down with the cares of this world for it is quickly fading away and giving way to that which I AM is birthing.  Soon these birth pangs will be gone and give way to a whole new life with Me.  Keep looking up – Your Redemption draws nigh.

Amen!  Thank You Jesus.  May it be done as You have said.  In Jesus Holy and Overcoming Name.  Amen!

Snares

Jeremiah 5:26 ‘For among My people are found wicked men; They lie in wait as one who sets snares; They set a trap; They catch men.  As a cage is full of birds, So their houses are full of deceit.  Therefore they have become great and grown rich.

Psalm 9:16  The Lord is known by the judgement He executes; The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.  Meditation. Selah

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

Untangle the Mess

Luke 3:4-6 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight. Every valley shall be filled And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough ways smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”

Malachi 3:3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the Lord An offering in righteousness.

1Cor. 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things?  If God is for us, who can be against us?

Anchor of Hope

Heb. 6:19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Jeremiah 29:11 I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

Heb. 4:1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear least any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they hear did not profit them, not being mixed wit faith in those who heard it.

Isaiah 49:16-17 See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.  Your sons shall make haste: Your destroyers and those who laid you waste Shall go away from you.

Restoration

Isaiah 49:8-9 “In an acceptable time I have heard You, And in the day of salvation I have helped You. I will preserve You and give you As a covenant to the people, To restore the earth, to cause them to inherit the desolate heritages; That You ay say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth,’ To those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’

Matt. 17:11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things.

Col. 3:2-4   Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.  For you died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Phil. 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and hear and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Malachi 3:1 “Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant, In whom You delight.  Behold, He is coming, “ Says the Lord of hosts.

Rear Guard

Isaiah 52:12  For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the Lord will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Love & Witness

1 Cor. 4:4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Galatians 5:13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.  For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

1Peter 3:15-17 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.  For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

James 3:13  Who is wise and understanding among you?  Let him sow by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.

Isaiah 43:10-11 ”You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant who I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He.  Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, And besides Me there is no savior.

Matt. 28:219-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.

Birthing

Isaiah 66:9 Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord.  “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.

Heb. 10:37-39 “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”  But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. 

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Romans 8:22-23 For we know that the whole creation groans ad labors with birth pangs together until now.  Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

Rev.12:4 …And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.  Se bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.  And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 

Pray:

2 Thessalonians 3:1-2

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith.

Amen!
