“Now is the Time to Gather Together and Lift Your Voices for the Lost”

On the morning of January 30, the Lord revealed His heart to me regarding His people in America. Here is what He said:

“I am the Lord, your refuge and strength. Cleave only to Me. I am with you. In all that comes upon the earth, I will be with you and you will be safe, warm, and protected. Although the walls fall around you, your own walls will stand. Other roofs will cave in, but your roof will be rain proof. Heat will overcome some, but not you. Cold will freeze some, but not you (Isaiah 49:9-10). For I am with you and I have made a way for you. Your paths have been made straight.

Bring to Me all those who are troubled, bring them before Me. Ask Me for the nations. I love to hear My children ask Me.

Come, learn of Me. Now is the time to learn much. Use all the resources I have given you. Search out the scriptures. Come to know the truths that you may speak of them and walk in them.

The time is now! The time is Now! Do not wait until the walls begin to crumble around you to ask Me for your people and your nation. Open your hearts now and lift up your voices. Cry out to Me now for your loved ones. I am waiting. I long to answer the prayers of the righteous, but their voices are silent. They wait, as though nothing can be said or done in this time. Now is the time to gather together and lift your voices for the lost. I am ready to hear your petitions.

This is what I would say to the people of America: Now is the time of your salvation. Do not wait. Come to Me now. Tomorrow I may not hear your prayers. Tomorrow it may be too late. Come to Me today. This is what I the Lord God would say to the righteous in America: Cry out for the lost. Do it today. This is your window of opportunity. My ears are inclined toward you. Will you not cry and sigh?”

There is a strong delusion on the people of God in America. Many have been sitting still, watching, waiting to see how things pan out. Some are even suffering from a form of paralysis, not sure what they believe is happening. Some are confused as watchmen are sending conflicting messages.

I believe the Lord is speaking in this way because of what is shortly to befall America. Time is short. A window of opportunity is rapidly closing. God is saying, “Cry out to Me now for the lost. Now is the acceptable time.”

I believe God’s ear is inclined toward the righteous in America today. He longs for them to cry out for the lost because they are going into eternity without Him. They stand on the very edge. The righteous remnant is assured of protection in the time of trouble ahead, but the lost are in dire need.

Whatever we believe about America’s future does not change the most important commission we have ever been given, so we should not lose sight of it.

The following two chapters were brought to my attention, Psalms 46 and Isaiah 43. They are of great comfort to those who will be carrying out the Great Commission in these final days before our Lord returns.

Psalms 46
[1] God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
[2] Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
[3] Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
[4] There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
[5] God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
[6] The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
[7] The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
[8] Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
[9] He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
[10] Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
[11] The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Isaiah 43
[1] But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
[2] When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
[3] For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
[4] Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.
[5] Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
[6] I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
[7] Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
[8] Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
[9] Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
[10] Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
[11] I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.
[12] I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.
[13] Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?
[14] Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.
[15] I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
[16] Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;
[17] Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.
[18] Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
[19] Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
[20] The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
[21] This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.
[22] But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.
[23] Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense.
[24] Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.
[25] I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
[26] Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
[27] Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.
[28] Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

She gave her heart to the Lord in the early seventies at age twelve. Six years ago, the Lord drew her aside, out of church involvement and other activities to wait on Him in the quietness of home. An awakening occurred, and an intimacy with the Lord that had been missing. Prophetic words and some dreams about what was coming to America began to come.   As an Aussie, it seemed odd that the calling was not to prophecy over her own nation, but she believes the focus will change at some point.  Alison has a heart to be used in the final harvest, encouraging those using their gifts in all walks of life, for prayer ministry and in urging all to prepare for what coming.

For those of us who do not pray enough……I was touched and chastened at the same time by the statement from Alison’s message: “I long to answer the prayers of the righteous, but their voices are silent”. I have prayed for lost loved ones for years, and for Israel and in general…….but since God delights in answering our prayers so much, it should behoove all of us to “labor in prayer” more……There is the smelly homeless man or woman, there is the lonely man in solitary confinement….like a bug in a jar for 23 hours a day……there is the young teenager or 20 something drinking and fornicating at will…..the elderly unsaved person dying of cancer. There is the deceived witch or new age person. There is the traveling business man who is tempted and hides what he does, as well as the lonely wife who casts her eyes astray. There are people in false religions and pro-abortion politicians and Hollywood types……ungodly musicians and film makers…..the list can go on and on….. Whether we think so or not…. so many of us have prayed for “me and mine”….and not much else……I will start off first by saying I’m sorry to the Lord……….and start anew…………Shalom…..

Allison, I have lived in one city in Texas for nearly 60 years. The demographics of the city have greatly changed over the past 30 years. There have been many people from many nations move into this region bringing with them their various religions. Our state university has one of the largest foreign student populations in the US. Several years ago a large Mosque was built directly across the road from my home. An Asian shrine was built down the road and a Korean meeting place has just opened two blocks from my home. For a time, I could not understand what God was doing since I have walked the streets of my city and neighborhood for years praying for God to bring a great harvest. Over the years God has brought me to the place of understanding that since so few American Christians would go to the nations, that God has brought the nations to us and put them right in our back yards. Why do you think God would do that? Now, I pray that God will bring down the strongholds that have come with the influx of many religions from the nations. I pray that prisoners to these religions will be set free and that The Lord of the Harvest will send forth laborers into the fields that surround us. There is indeed a great harvest that is now present everywhere one looks in America. May God give us eyes to see men as Christ does and may we be His Ambassadors where ever we walk. The time is short and the end time harvest will not last long. May we be faithful laborers.

Oh Alison, this is music to my ears!!! In all my prayers for our country, I always turned into this big crybaby. All I did was cry. I kept apologizing to The Lord for being such a crybaby, but now I know I was ok!!. Oh I pray He has heard my sorrow over the lost in this once great nation from Our Great Holy God. I’m going to keep on praying and bawling, and keep my focus on The Great I AM!!!!! Praise HIS HOLY NAME!!!!!

Psalm 126:5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. When in an intersession group, I also tend to weep (for the lost and the LORD’s goodness in bring forth revival).

Thank you, Alison, for this word! I believe that the LORD is talking to many that now is the time for a great harvest of souls into HIS kingdom! On the 21st of January, I heard from the LORD, “go out to the highways and the by-ways.” I found the corresponding Scripture in Luke 14:23: “Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” I wrote more about it called: “A Call for the Latter Rains” on my blog.

Many comments posted at Z3 should be e-mailed to our two U.S. senators and U.S. congressman and to our friends. Google the name of your leaders and click on “Contact” and it’s very easy. I just did this for the first time re. the State Dept. employee who is being harassed for displaying a Trump photo on her desk and for not signing a petition against Trump’s immigration policy, a violation of the Hatch Act. Here’s the link to the Dave Hodges article. We must be vocal because there is a war going on and every voice matters.

You are entirely correct here. We’ve been silent as a group for much too long.

Thank you Alison for sharing what the Lord gave you. Another scripture that strongly confirms your word from Him, is Isaiah 4:5,6. It’s the scripture that also confirms, I believe, the Refuge/Ark concept, that the Lord gave to me regarding a place of refuge/safety for His people to come to for protection.
Blessings to all…..

GYNDA LOMAX speaks of an “eternal perspective” above.
Here’s a post that speaks of that.
