Zechariah 1:3 Therefore say to them, Thus declares the LORD of hosts: Return to me, says the LORD of hosts, and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts.

As we entered July, God spoke to me about 90 hard rains that were coming.

The 90 rains prophecy is a prophecy of 90 very hard rains coming, particularly to America. These will be acts of God that are actually demonstrating patience towards the church while she is busy drifting into error. Instead of unleashing harsh justice, God is giving us space to repent.

By communicating via dramatic changes in the American natural atmosphere, God wants there to be a realization, an awakening of senses, and a heart that returns to Him in humility, simple devotion, and love. 12 of these rains have already happened. Less than 80 more are coming.

God gave me this word to release as a trumpet. The goal and prayer is that the church will awakenThe patience of God is allowing what appears to be bad, destructive things to occur. As Elisabeth Elliot said, “God will not protect you from anything that will make you more like Jesus.” He doesn’t promise to keep us from valleys, He promises to be with us. He doesn’t promise to keep us from the cross, rather He calls us to it. There are dark times, but God is in the awakening. He’s the joy that comes after the sorrow. Or, maybe he’s the joy that ends the weeping.

Like the days of Jeremiah, we’ve been in a time of weeping. We’re in a dark time. We’re in an opportunity to share in the burden of the Lord. We’re in a moment like Joel 2:17

Let the priests, the LORD’S ministers, Weep between the porch and the altar, And let them say, “Spare Your people, LORD, And do not make Your inheritance a disgrace, With the nations jeering at them. Why should those among the peoples say, ‘Where is their God?’”

When God gave me the 90 rains word, He told me it was about His will. He told me the church had drifted out of alignment with His heart. Too many folks in the church have become warmongers. There’s an eagerness for fighting. There’s an unusual amount of unholy aggression that’s characterizing the church. Flippant, childish name-calling has seemingly replaced fruits of the Spirit in this season.

Meanwhile, God has been continuing to remind me that He wants His will to become beloved, valued, and prioritized again.lpp

Sadly, after reading a recent article about Christian Nationalism in Rolling Stone magazine, I was unequivocally prodded and freshly aware of God’s heart wooing us back to His will. He’s the father, waiting on the prodigal, wayward church.

The article pointed out specific thoughts and talks from a particular spirit-filled leader and influencer. This article highlighted the exact problem God told me He was waiting to be repented of.

Per Rolling Stone: In videos posted earlier this year, [a well-known preacher] decried the notion that Christians should pray for God’s will to be done, but not involve themselves directly in politics as “one of the greatest deceptions Satan has ever visited on the church.”

Here in this message, is the notion that praying for God’s will is not enough. It proposes that we have to get involved in politics and work to take over, and fix things ourselves.

I wouldn’t dare share such a specific word if I didn’t feel God’s pain over this. The will of God is beautiful, trustworthy, and valuable enough to be sought out. Conversely, trying to make the ways of God happen in our own efforts will create Ishmaels. Abraham wanted to get involved and help make the plan of God happen. So he slept with a concubine (Hagar) to help make the hope of a son come to fruition. Dear church, we can’t keep mixing spirit with error.

God doesn’t need the arm of flesh to help Him along. Sure, God uses our obedience and involves us in His workings, but we can’t always trust our good ideas of what and when to act especially when those behaviors are brazen or violent. It’s got to, got to, got to be God’s will.

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

Like Abraham bedding the wrong woman, we can’t become intimate with worldly politics. It will only birth an Antichrist, and not the true plan of God.

Dear forerunners and pioneers…Americanism, Nationalism, Republicanism, Democratism, conservatism, liberalism…they’re all the wrong road.

Come out of that error.

Trust God. Pray “thy will be done.” Repent. God will forgive and restore. Begin to love again. Quit trying to be a chief apostle, a father, or a brand…and be what Jesus was always teaching us to be—a neighbor.
