Calling All Women of God

Jeremiah 29
12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?
13 And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;
14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:
15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.
17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come:
18 And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.
19 For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.
20 Yet hear the word of the LORD, O ye women, and let your ear receive the word of his mouth, and teach your daughters wailing, and every one her neighbour lamentation.
21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the streets.
22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.
23 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

Praise the Lord, women of God. This Scripture has been speaking in my Spirit since the Tsunamis hit Asia on December 26, 2004. Just a few weeks ago, an earthquake in the middle of the ocean simply wiped hundreds of thousands of people off the earth. Thirteen nations were impacted, and disease is still expected to kill more. As we pray for the survivors and the families of those lost, I believe God would have His people warned. He is still on the throne and judgment is coming!

We are living in a time and a nation (here in the USA) where the people of God are living "sloppy" lives. We need desperately, to patch up our relationships with God. Jesus is soon to come, and judgment begins at the house of God. Nevertheless, I believe God is calling the women in America to a season of intercession. Women are natural nurturers. We are emotional and carry the burdens of many on a day to day basis. I believe our Father wants us to do this natural thing on a spiritual level. We need to carry the burdens of sinners to God, especially those who are backslidden.

We also need to pray for the nations. Thousands of children have been orphaned by the recent tsunami. Widows are in abundance. They, too, need intercession on their behalf. We must cry out to God for those who can't cry themselves. We must seek Him for those who don't know how or where to look.

In the spirit, a tsunami has hit the church! My God! People are falling and dying by the hundreds of thousands. They cannot be found. They are unaccounted for. They are leaving orphans and widows in the church. Women attend church without their husbands. Husbands pray without their wives. Children worship without their parents. Unity must be brought back to the homes of believers. Then, it will go forth in the physical church and house of God.

Women of God, begin wailing for those who are spiritually dead! Pray for those spiritual survivors who are seeking family members and loved ones! A shaking has taken place, and God is calling us to intercede. Be fervent in prayer. The level of sin and disobedience should cause us to cry and to wail. Let's seek God for revival and renewed life, in Jesus' name.
