How many of you have loved ones that are asleep during such a time as this? I do, and I have been in much prayer for them to wake up. This content is more personal, but I feel strongly led to share it.
I have been working on learning more about all the different spiritual warfare weapons the Lord has made available to us in our fight against those that come against us and our loved ones. One of those spiritual weapons is unity and agreement, for the Lord said:
Matthew 18:19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven”.
So I called a long-time friend and brother in Christ from Mexico, who I know is close to the Lord and has seen many miracles and answered prayers, and I asked if he was willing to agree with me regarding the salvation of my loved ones.
We were praying over the phone, and the presence of the Lord filled my car. My brother in Christ received an open vision right during the prayer session. He saw Jesus holding the hands of my loved ones, and he said there were many angels standing around them, like in the form of a circle, surrounding Jesus and my loved ones.
(Have you used this spiritual weapon in the battle for the salvation of your loved ones? If not, find someone that is filled and anointed by the Holy Spirit, and pray together and agree with him/her in prayer. This is a spiritual weapon that is often not used)
Praise God! Of course that meant much to me, but during the following week I found myself once again praying and pleading with God for their salvation. The same brother in Christ called me a week later with another message from the Lord. I did not write down the exact words, but the content of the message was this: “Instead of begging and pleading for your loved ones, make a declaration of faith”.
When we keep pleading and begging God on behalf of our unsaved loved ones we are really acting out of fear – the fear they may not be in heaven. But our fear does not move God. He is moved by our faith and our discipline to speak and believe the Word of God. He wants us to make proclamations of faith, believing that He will answer our prayers:
Matthew 21:22 “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”. John 16:24 “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete”. 1 John 3:22 “We receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him”.
So the Lord wants me (and everyone else praying for their loved ones) to stop pleading in fear, but approach Him through the blood of Jesus in confidence, and BELIEVE he will answer our prayers for the salvation of our loved ones.
The Holy Spirit will lead you in your own personal proclamations, but here is an example of how they can look like:
Father God Almighty, I come before you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord, who is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, and I thank you for the blood of the Lamb and the power in your Word. This day I ask with confidence for the salvation of my loved ones, and according to your love and promises in Matthew 21:22, Hebrews 11:1 and John 16:24 I believe you hear me, and because of your great and infinite mercy, I know you answer prayers. You said in your Word that we will receive what we ask for in prayer if we believe. I believe! This day I make a declaration, that my loved ones WILL walk on the streets of gold, they WILL see mansions in heaven and they WILL worship the Lamb with the angels in heaven. It does not matter how things look like today. I believe in your Word, I believe your angels act on your Word, I believe you know them and what is necessary to turn them around, and I declare with assurance that my loved ones will be saved by your grace even if I do not see it today. Thank you Father God for hearing and answering our prayers. I can already envision me playing and singing with my loved ones in your Kingdom, and to you alone belongs all the glory, all the honor and all the power forever and ever, AMEN!
