Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. (Ps 100:4) The gates of heaven open when we pray with thanksgiving. It is time to enter the Prayer Zone!
How would you like to have a piece of heaven on Earth? As you look at this picture, I want you to picture yourself under an open heaven. Did you know that when you pray, you are entering heaven? Heaven’s gates will open to you as you give the Lord thanks for what he has done to you. As you do this, you will enter the Prayer Zone!
When I was a kid growing up in New York, my family would watch the Twilight zone. A series of stories that were filled with mysteries. At the end of the program, I would get scared at seeing how these episodes ended. Now, I am in a far better dimension- A dimension of prayer. A dimension of signs and wonders. A dimension where wisdom is found. My next stop is the Prayer zone.
As I grew older and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I discovered that I could change my destiny. I was destined for a burning hell, but my decision to accept Christ changed everything. Now, I am a citizen of God’s kingdom. No longer do I have to worry about life’s most challenging problems, because I have the mind of Christ.
These are perilous times. The body of Christ cannot allow the luxury of distractions to sidetrack its purpose. With today’s technology and entertainment, it is easy to be distracted. These obstacles can make us comfortable and lose sight of God’s purpose in our lives. Let’s look at the following verse–
Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came! (Amos 6:1)
Amid the coming judgment, Israel was at ease. The mountains of Samaria were fortified and well built for battle. The people had drawn away from God, being swayed by their prosperity and safety. We are no different. God is calling his church to prepare. To prepare to examine their hearts and get right with God.
Many in the body need to find their calling. Others need to shake off the ease and comfort to start getting busy for the Lord. God is starting to bring America under judgment, and we must prepare. Judgment starts in the house of the Lord.
Many Christians want to know their future. I find it amusing that Christians seek Facebook to know their future. When I was backslidden, I used to begin my day reading the Horoscope. I was interested in the psychic phenomenon. I used to read people’s palms and tell them about their future. Looking back at my life, there was a spirit of divination that was guiding me.
Now, God guides me with the spirit of Truth. The word says that he will show us things to come. Do you want to know your future? Stop going to places like Facebook and other nonsense and allow the Spirit to reveal what’s in store for you. Praying in tongues is an excellent way to enter into the dimension of God’s mysteries. I like the testimony of Pastor Kenneth Hagin. Pastor Kenneth Hagin, while praying in tongues, saw his future wife’s face.
The apostle Paul was given a preview of his future ministry. He was struck blind by the light of God’s power but entered into another dimension. He went into a forced fast, having nothing to eat or drink. Fasting is barely mentioned in TV ministries, but it is a necessary tool for us to see our future.
In his forced fast, he saw Ananias coming in to lay his hands and pray for his sight. God, purposely, took him from the natural into the spiritual realm. Our eyes need to be enlightened, and amid the middle of bad news, we cannot allow ourselves to lose our joy. We may be going thru hard times, but God will give us victory in the end.
For more on this, please listen to our podcast listed above. It is time to prepare. God is calling his body to pray. Times are not getting any better, and it is up to us to seek the Lord like never before. Jesus is coming soon, and we need to be about the Lord’s business, so the word for today is—Prepare!
