Today aunt E joined us. we were all being trained and raised as intercessors/watchmen after the heart of God!
I woke around 4:30am and managed to bath, open the doors and waited for the arrival. I prayed in the spirit and cleansed the compound not knowing why I did that. I normally did not do that early in the morning binding and casting. However, when they arrived the dogs were quiet and calm and still. Your cousin was so fed up with all the recent 5am daily commotion (e.g. attic door opening, footsteps on staircases, keys turning, dogs barking, and of course loud Bible reading and praying!) that she went and complained to aunt E last night about her not sleeping enough. Anyway, today the Lord led me to do the spiritual cleansing in the garden.
Now we have aunt Priscilla, uncle Aquila, uncle Mil (his son Z sleeping in the car), uncle MW, aunt E and me.
Today we received the same song in the spirit, Philippians 3:7-8. “But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ .”
So we decided to read the verses. The Lord then led us to look at Jesus in 2:7-8 “but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”
After that we knew we were to continue looking at the Son of God and learn to be sons of God which was the main theme yesterday in the song 1John 3:8b. We prayed and asked the Lord to help us be aligned with His heart, having the mind of Christ. (1 Cor.2:16)
We looked forward to a Bible Study led by the Lord, but after our Holy Communion, the Lord Holy Spirit led us to burst forth in tongues and we prayed in tongue for a long time, until the Lord gave us the burden of His heart to weep and intercede for churches (naming all the Chinese pastors we know and crying for them)! There was no dry eyes or faces.
We experienced the reality of the Bible verse that we have prayed daily as we meet and partake Holy Communion in the name of the Lord Jesus, “But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” (1 Cor.6:17)
Then the Lord led us to pray for the children in Sunday schools churches, Christian organizations, orphanages, youth homes and other Christian training programs and education activities, seeing in our spirit how they copy the unbelievers’ worldly customs and traditions, leading the children to pagan altars and offer them as sacrifices to pagan gods, trying to please man and not God, bringing the children up the worldly secular way and not God’s way.
They do not heed the Lord’s clear warning in Deut12:4 “Do not worship the Lord your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods”.
28 Be careful to obey all my commands, so that all will go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is good and pleasing to the Lord your God. 29 “When the Lord your God goes ahead of you and destroys the nations and you drive them out and live in their land, 30 do not fall into the trap of following their customs and worshiping their gods. Do not inquire about their gods, saying, ‘How do these nations worship their gods? I want to follow their example.’ 31 You must not worship the Lord your God the way the other nations worship their gods, for they perform for their gods every detestable act that the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters as sacrifices to their gods. 32 [a]“So be careful to obey all the commands I give you. You must not add anything to them or subtract anything from them.After that those among us who are parents repented too for wrong values and negligence and not taking up spiritual authority and parent the children to fear God, resulting that there is no godliness and holiness in the second generation. All pledged to re-build our family altars.
So today we have the Lord as the Spirit of intercession in our midst. We were all elated and felt refreshed after all the tearful prayers (including bind and cast too). By the time we broke off reluctantly, aunt E was amazed to discover that it was already almost 9am! Four hours (5am-9am) swept past us without anyone knowing as we were soaked in the joy of the Lord Holy Spirit!
love in Christ from uncle watchman.
