TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
When you’re down, I Am there. When you’re up, I Am there. Know My hand is there to lift you up, not beat you down no matter what your past looks like.
THE PROPHET OF HELL
I spend a lot of time explaining how this works: God is still good despite so much evil in the world. People don’t believe that. I’ve even had people tell me they believe God is working mightily through hurricanes.
I do not believe God is in the hurricane business. He is, however in the speaking His word business. People argue with me on that.
If you’re about your Father’s business and you pray His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, you know His will is not to bring hurricanes. They are part of living in a fallen world. It’s your job to bring healing to people who have experienced a hurricane, and a word from God in the midst of a hurricane.
I think you partner with Hell when you stand on a beach in Florida and say this is the judgment of God – this is His will, and this is what you get for being a bunch of knuckleheads.
Let me tell you who else says that. The devil says that! The body of Jesus Christ is to speak the heart of Jesus, not the wrath of Hell. Jesus calmed storms. He didn’t stir them up.
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” – Mark 4:39-40
I refuse to be the prophet of hell bringing damnation. Jesus brings life. Period. He not only calms tornadoes and hurricanes, He calms the storms in our hearts and lives. Do you know someone who could use His peace?
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KNOW JESUS CALMS STORMS. WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE, DON’T FEAR. HAVE FAITH.
