EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

TEXT: LUKE 2:21-38
KEY VERSE: Luke 2: 37 “And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.”
God consecrated Simeon as a prayer warrior to pray into the world the Saviour, Jesus Christ. He prayed until he saw it accomplished and then said, “Lord now let your servant depart in peace. I have done my work by the help of the Holy Ghost. The light has come in; the Saviour of your people Israel and of the world.”
It was not only Simeon, Anna too was a great intercessor. It is obvious that God consecrates both man and woman for the ministry of prayer. It might not have been only Simeon and Anna, but these two were the ones that were privileged to come into the temple by the leading of the Holy Ghost to see the result of their prayers.
Others were still there that never came up; some others would have even died - all praying for the coming of the Saviour. In a similar way, God is raising up today, prayer warriors that will pray-in the Rapture, and God is using these prayer warriors to enable them to make the Church, the Bride of Christ, pure, holy and undefiled.
God is raising up people to purify the Church and to bring in the last harvest into the Church.
“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and these shall be one fold and one shepherd” - John 10:16.
This is the work the Lord requires the watchmen to accomplish for Him. Do you now know your calling? Pray that the Lord may send true, righteous and holy ministers into His vineyard. That is the duty of prayer, praying without ceasing. As a duty, prayer must be performed in every area of life – in your marriage, business, family, ministry, interactions, education and in all things about you (360degree), that you may stand perfect, unfailing in any area; and not have blemishes in your life.
Prayer is a duty. It is not a one-day affair. God has called you to Holiness Revival Movement; a Movement meant to usher in Christ the King in the Rapture. The reason the Lord chose you and said: “Come, work in My Vineyard”, is to gather the last harvest and get the Bride prepared for the Bridegroom. What a great privilege! What a confidence He has reposed in you
Thought for the day: Pray that the Lord may send true, righteous and holy ministers into His vineyard.
Song for the day: Rescue the perishing, care for the dying....
Bibles reading for the day: Daniel 9-10; 2 John
