PRAYER GUIDE, “END-TIMES DECEPTION,” 22.11.18
Prepare Your people, all of us, Father, by Your Holy Spirit, for the deception of these last days. We are all vulnerable in some areas, to lesser and/or greater degrees. Bring us to that place walking in holiness “before You, that we will be blameless” (Gen.17:1); “because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy”” (1 Pet.1:16).
Forgive us for subscribing to perverted versions of Your Truth, allowing ourselves to get caught up in “cheap grace” teachings and expectations, leading us into relying on grace because we are not accountable for our actions. But we are accountable for our words and actions, for Yeshua said: “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word … And I say to you that every careless word that they will speak, men will give an …. speech a man shall be condemned, but that he shall give an account for it” (Matt.12:36). And just as Paul taught: “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (2 Cor.5:10), make us ready for this
Let us not be fooled by erroneous translations and/or teachings, such as in Rom.8:1,2, for we know all of Scripture, and there are other passages that inform us that we must be walking in the Spirit, and NOT in the flesh in order to qualify for Your complete blessings (Deut.28:1,2; Lev.26:3,4), which include Your protective covering. Let us not be deceived. Your Word makes it clear that we are accountable; that we are called to repentance: “Repent and do the deeds you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your menorah from its place – unless you repent” (Rev.2:5). “Repent then! If not, I will come to you soon and make war against them with the sword of My mouth” (Rev.2:16). So let us not fool ourselves.
Teach us to walk in Your Truth and Your holiness for we have been instructed: “Be holy, for I am holy”” (1 Pet.1:16). Strengthen our hearts and minds in preparation for these times of “famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows” (Mk.13:5-8), for “false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Mk.13:22). Make us to walk uprightly. Make us to be ready for the worst of whatever is to come during our time on this earth, in Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
