Mother's family had a tradition. The first one to say, "Christmas Eve Gift," to someone, that someone was supposed to give them a Christmas Eve Gift. It was more tradition that actual gift giving. But it was always a race to be first.
I think the Lord has given us a Christmas Eve Gift in the form of a "flop and stop" that my daughter Shelli had this morning. She is staying at my house and pulled The Founders Bible
off the shelf. It fell open in the Book of Mark. Her attention was drawn to an insert on that page.
EZRA STILES, the president of Yale College (1778-1795) stated in an address entitled "The United States Elevated to Glory and Honor,"
before the governor and the General Assembly of Connecticut in May 1783.
In our lowest and most dangerous state, in 1776 and 1777, we sustained ourselves against the British Army of 60,000 troops, commanded by...the ablest generals Britain could procure...with a naval force of 22,000 seamen...
Who but a Washington, inspired by Heaven could have conceived the surprise move upon the enemy at Princeton-that Christmas Eve when Washington and his army crossed the Delaware?
Who but the ruler of the winds could have delayed the British reinforcements by three months of contrary ocean winds at a critical point of the war?
Or what but "a providential miracle" at the last minute detected the treacherous scheme of traitor Benedict Arnold, which would have delivered the American army, including George Washington himself, into the hands of the enemy?
*On the French role in the Revolution, it is God who so ordered the balancing interests of nations as to produce an irresistible motive in the European maritime powers to take our part...
The United States are under peculiar obligations to become a holy people unto the Lord our God.
*Years ago, the Lord kept impressing me to find out about Joan of Arc. I read a little but paid no real attention to study, etc. Then, one day in an art glass shop, I passed by a bookcase they had with old books. One fell on my head. It was the Time Life Book on Joan of Arc. I paid attention and read this very good book.
England and France were engaged in what was called The Hundred Year Wars. England had almost completely defeated France.
Around this time, Joan of Arc began to have mystical visions encouraging her to lead a pious life. Over time, they became more vivid, with the presence of St. Michael and St. Catherine designating her as the savior of France and encouraging her to seek an audience with Charles-who had assumed the title Dauphin (heir to the throne)-and ask his permission to expel the English and install him as the rightful king. (Biography Joan of Arc.)
The young maid became a military leader and France was saved.
The Lord spoke to me as I read this, "He said, 'I wanted to make you aware that I am involved in the activity of nations. If England had defeated France, there would have been no France and no Lafayette to join the Colonists and defeat the biggest superpower on earth at that time, England. And there would have been no United States.'" Pray-ers Alert
Stay on the Alert! Yes, dark things abode. But we are Children of the Light.
I believe what God told Dr. Gary Wood when he was in Heaven. He said that there would be an outpouring of 1) Restoration 2) Prayer 3) Miracles just before Jesus' return.
I am witness. God has raised up a prayer force. And you are a member.
Be sure to rule and reign every day according to what we have learned.
Sit in your seats of Authority every morning and rule and reign over the area of your habitational authority. (Eph 1:17-2:6; Romans 5:17).
Apply the Blood of Jesus over yourself and your family.
Apply the Blood of Jesus over the good works God has ordained that you should walk in.
Remember what to say when you get into your cars, your planes. First of All
Obey 1 Timothy 2:1. First of all, lift up our leaders. This Scripture was put in the Bible because it works.
Remember I told you of my former Muslim friend who had been given visions of the Lord before our recent election. He was told who would win. How God had prepared people. But he was admonished that God's people would have to support those elected according to 1 Timothy 2:1 as we have never done. Let us do this from now, through the inauguration, and every day after. America's Destiny
According to Acts 17:26 God brought forth this country at the right time for His divine purpose. You praying people are brought forth at this time as well for, among other things, the completion of that destiny.
Remember our Scriptures:
And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Call upon Him to reveal and destroy plots against your areas and against Israel and America.
Europeans, Scandinavians, Australians, Kiwis, Islanders, Canadians, South Americans, Africans, Arabian states, Asian states. Rule and Reign in your domain.
God is doing wondrous things! And He is doing them through His Body that will work with Him. Do your part.
And have a happy new year.
May God's richest and best be yours.
