God’s plan materializes in the form of critical tipping points throughout history.
~ Lisa Blair
PERSPECTIVE Isn’t it amazing? The lowly are and have been powerful all along. God gave power to the weak. The deception was and is the wealthy are all-powerful. The pandemic has and is empowering those who truly run the economy (the weak=essential workers), who was deceived by Satan.
They have the power to demand and receive higher wages, good health care, revitalized neighborhoods, and excellent schools. The pandemic was and is being used to establish a new national order. The voiceless have voices and are calling for justice. The only thing that hasn’t happened yet is a nationwide strike that has the potential to cripple society until these things are met. The rich are rich because the workers (the essential class) work. If the workers stop working, if demands are not met, the Nation crumbles. The 21st century will see the lowly lifted up. I am not advocating an uprising, but it is evident, things are changing, and justice for all will prevail.
”He has brought rulers from their thrones. But he has lifted up people who are not considered important.” Luke 1:52 NIRV
Our Democracy will evolve into a form of government that responds to the needs of the ‘less important’, as well as those deemed important. Balance brings justice. God is lifting up those who are not considered important.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5 NIV
We are in the midst of a spiritual war. Time to pray. Everything must bow to the Name of Jesus.
A friend posted this prayer. It is powerful! Calling all prayer warriors to join in the battle.
CORONAVIRUS……….if that’s your real name……I really don’t care what you call yourself because your name, your title, your will, your existence HAS to bow to the name of Jesus!! That is His law and His promise, that is if we who choose to abide in Him, He Will abide in us and we can ask anything in His name and it will be done!
First of all, I have heard for weeks now how this “pandemic” is basically going to wipe us out….like the bird flu and several others in recent years. I come against all news outlets who enjoy speaking the enemy’s propaganda. I don’t deny that there is a deadly virus on the loose….I deny it’s ability to prosper against me or my family or those I love. I condemn you coronavirus in the name of Jesus. Go back to hell where you originated. I praise you God for the power that resides within each of us who indeed belongs to You and I use that same power and authority for my favor! Your word says in Psalms 91:1-16
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.
Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with Him in trouble; I will deliver Him, and honour Him.
With long life will I satisfy Him, and shew Him my salvation.
I stand on these words from You!!
Lastly, let’s move on from speaking this beast into existence and began to speak it into exile!!! I don’t know about tomorrow, but I know who holds tomorrow In His hands And is in control of it All!
JESUS, YOU ARE LORD OVER EVERYTHING INCLUDING THIS Coronavirus and every other virus created by man. We give you Praise, Glory and Honor and know that THIS and other viruses OR DISEASE will STOP in their tracks, wither at the roots and die to be no more. In the name of Jesus Amen!!!
Praise God for His Word!! Praise is our Weapon!
Copy and pass this on your page. It’s time for us prayer warriors to take a stand and WATCH what God can and will do!
Believers should not experience anxiety, doubt or fear. They are not in our DNA.
~ Lisa Blair
To say life can be difficult is a misnomer, life is difficult. The world is turning at an accelerated pace. Our minds are trying to keep up and society has placed immeasurable weight upon us. We tend to wake up feeling the pressure of the day, already feeling overwhelmed, but that is not the destiny of believers. Paul wrote in Psalm 49:19, and I am reflecting upon two versions NIV and NLT,
“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Psalm 94:19 NIV
“When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.” Psalms 94:19 NLT
I am sharing both because one expresses ‘anxiety’ and the other ‘doubt’. God provided us with a exchange system, exchanging His joy, renewed hope, and cheer for your anxiety, doubt, and fear.
God did not give us the continence to be fearful, anxious or doubtful. These are not part of our DNA.
II Timothy 1:7 NKJV reports,
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
If God did not give us fear, He did not give us anxiety or doubt. They are the birth children of sin. Christ died on the Cross to free is of sin. We still possess our sin nature, but we are no longer bound by it. Anxiety and doubt are shackles we can remove through prayer.
When we wake up in the morning feeling anxious or doubtful, the first thing we must do, yes – must do, is to ask the Lord to forgive our weaknesses and ask for the strength to break free and replace the fear with His power, love and a sound mind. A sound mind is not weakened or conflicted by anxiety, doubt or fear. Believers should not experience anxiety, doubt, or fear they are not in our DNA, work to prove God right, not wrong, stand strong.
We are empowered to demolish Strongholds! Take action and create the change we want to see through prayer.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 sounds as if it was written for times such as this, and why not, it is a living document and is always relevant. It is timeless and is not bound by Greenwich Mean Time. Our battle is ongoing and will end when Christ returns, until that time we must fight.
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Cor 10:4-5 NIV
Sam Storms (Commentary, Taking Everything Thought Captive For Christ, 2 Cor. 10:4-6) opens, “We live in an age of angry atheism; not simply a casual and indifferent disregard for the existence of God but a militant opposition to all things religious.”
These scriptural verses are packed with power. The key words of this study are ‘divine’ and ‘demolish.’
God gave us the power to demolish strongholds. This harkens back to Ephesians warning that we are in battle as long as we live on earth. Paul explained the battle in military terms identifying our power in terms of armor. We should not take this lightly. The novel, Tale of Cities expresses this as living in the best of times and the worst of times. Today, the best of times is governed by our advancements in technology, ecology, and medicine. The worst of times is governed by Satan’s stronghold on all things earthly, twisting truth, and redefining humanity to destroy the earth.
We are in the worst of times because there is militant opposition to all things religious, and the best of times because there is an increasing number of people becoming Christians. We, Christians, have been given the responsibility to militarize ourselves, to put on the armor and demolish the strongholds of the evil one. God has given us the power to DEMOLISH STRONGHOLDS. We have DIVINE POWER. My question is why are we not using the power God has given us? I belong to a global organization, Bible Study Fellowship (BSF). Every member throughout the world collectively studies the same lesson, gaining understanding, wisdom, and knowledge about the Books of the Bible. It is important to mention here because it demonstrates that we can come into one accord if we choose. Just imagine if all Christians throughout the world held a common prayer vigil until we broke the spine of the evil one. We have the one tool that can change the tide of destruction but cannot come into one accord to accomplish this mission, God’s work.
Today, let us engage people in our sphere of influence to pick up the Sword of the Spirit and go to work. Change begins with one person. If each of us asks one other person to pray for peace and the strength to stand against the winds of political upheaval, social media, and inhumanity, we can begin to affect the change. We can use our divine power to counter the militant opposition to all things religious and demolish their strongholds on our global society.

When we are weak and doubting, He is STRONG. ~ Lisa Blair
God is ever present in our lives, yet often we feel defeated and lost. Why? It seems we often attempt to travel unprepared to succeed. We enter the battleground without our armor. Rest in this meditation. Seek Him first.
