A few days ago I was praying over our state asking God to break the demonic principality of religion. His answer came quickly:
Pray for hunger for a deeper relationship with Me. This will break the spirit of religion.
Hunger for God, His Word, and prayer takes people beyond their traditional denominational roots. If all you need or want in your spiritual experience is what you have, then you may be bound up in a spirit of religion.
God wants hunger for Him to drive us deeper into His Word and relationship with Him. When we get hungry for God, the Holy Spirit becomes activated in our lives. The more you seek to love, welcome, and know the Holy Spirit, the deeper your spiritual encounter with Jesus will become. THEN and only then are you willing to let go of religious tradition that doesn’t line up with the Word of God.
Hunger for God will compel your religious upbringing into a power encounter with God. When you have a supernatural love encounter with God, then your willingness allows the Holy Spirit to take you deeper into the truth of the Word.
What I have witnessed in the past fifty plus years is that women tend to be more hungry for God. Women attend Bible studies, prayer groups and church on Sunday. If a married woman gets hungry for God, she always has to deal with what her husband thinks about it, especially if he is steeped in religion. Should he be a church goer, “tradition” is good enough, “don’t rock the boat!”
Unfortunately, should you be baptized in the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues, they/people will think you are crazy! What a commentary on the lack of knowledge of the Word of God! One of the most beautiful sounds on earth is believers praying in the Spirit in unison. How sad to choose to miss out on this beautiful mystery of God.
Look around and see how the powerless church of America is fairing. Without spiritual hunger, zeal and a desire to go deeper in God, all you have is empty religion. Same ole church the same ole way without fire from heaven.
Fire from heaven comes through love, welcoming, and honoring the Holy Spirit.
When pastors invite Holy Spirit to come in and have His way, without regard for schedules, agendas, timetables, and tradition, only then will we start to see America come out of the abyss.
If you think lifeless, social, dead religion is going to pull America out of her preplanned destruction, then think again.
Only the power of God, the fire of the Holy Spirit and revelation of Jesus as King of Kings and Lord of Lords will save America. God alone can give us a hope and a future.
Let the people of God arise, shake off slumber and dead religion and come into the Church’s glorious calling!
Seek the face of God while He can be found. Give up your sin and compromise and give your life wholeheartedly to Jesus. Hunger for God will break off the demonic structure that has had you bound.
Press in and go deeper in God. Let no one hinder you! The hour is late! It’s almost midnight.
