I have been watching and praying over the Nations a lot lately. Globally, we are in a Psalm 2 season. The Nations are, “raging” and there is a lot of “plotting vain things” against the Lord and his Anointed people, the Church.
This is a season where we have to war in a new way and have keen eyes and ears in the Spirit. One of the things I have heard as I have been watching and praying is the phrase, “I will fight for you”.
This prophetic sense took on a unique and amazing prophetic picture this week in the news. I feel through it, that God is speaking something powerful to us.
The website Snopes.com lists this incident as “unproven” and lists the reasons why this would be unlikely to happen. I am not saying that Snopes is wrong to doubt this. There is nothing I dislike more than something cooked up that is false to whip people into some frenzy. But I don’t feel that is what this is. Snopes simply says it’s “unproven”. I think our whole Bible would probably fall into that category if it were listed on Snopes! Whatever the case, however, we are in a time where supernatural occurrences are happening all over the World and God is intervening in amazing ways on behalf of His people. Here is the story, as reported by one site. Let it speak to your heart as you read it and I will expound on it further.
— Pastor Paul Ciniraj is the director of Bibles for MidEast, which delivers Bibles, preaches the Gospel and plants house churches.
He says, while Islam remains dominant, “thousands upon thousands of people now secretly believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior.”
In a news report Pastor Paul delivered this week to WND, he says he was recovering from injuries he received in an attack by Islamic jihadists when the rescue occurred.
It was Easter Sunday, and he was recovering in the home of friends in a forested area near where his group has been working.
Suddenly, a group of militants reached the house, armed with steel bars and other weapons,” he reported to WND. In the home with him were others, including a woman aged 80, several children under the age of 4 and a woman seven months pregnant.
“Losing all hope, we thought for sure this was our last day,” he said. But while the group was praying, he reported a strange occurrence.
“Completely unexpectedly, a Lion ran from the forest, leapt toward the militants, and seized one by the neck. When other combatants tried to attack the lion, two other lions bounded toward them. The terrified militants fled the site, and the lions left us completely alone,” he said.
“Equally astonishing, records show no lions are supposed to live in that forest,” he said. He had been approaching the closing of a 21-day period of fasting and prayer. ”As that drew to a close, more than 3,000 former Muslims were baptized in many of our Churches in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The Lord enabled me to baptize many people during this time,” he said. —
This story is an amazing depiction of what God is doing right now. In hopeless situations all over the World, where the enemy (depicted by the attackers and the spirit behind Islam, not the Muslim people whom God loves) is closing in all around, God comes through in a miraculous, totally unexpected way!
I believe that we are supposed to start to expect the unexpected! When God fights for you, things happen that would never otherwise happen and miracles begin to pop up all around. Great deliverances occur as God deals with an enemy that is way too strong for you.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 3:22, “Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you.”
In whatever situation you are facing, expect THE LION of the Tribe of Judah to suddenly come on the scene! Do not lose heart! Do not lose hope! God is fighting for you!
