TAKE UP YOUR CROSS

I have been asked: “Are you a prophet?” My answer to that is: I am who Jesus says I am. He says I am His, it is more than enough, more than I deserve.

Philip Harrison, servant of the Lord

PERIODICALLY I AM MOVED OF THE LORD TO WRITE A WORD TO BE SHARED WITH THE PEOPLE. DURING THESE TIMES I DON’T THINK ABOUT WHAT I’M WRITING, IT JUST COMES TO ME, WHAT I HEAR I WRITE. THOSE WORDS, WHEN THEY COME, WILL BE SHARED ON THIS WEBSITE, LAST DAYS PRAYER WARRIORS.

TAKE UP YOUR CROSS
My name is Philip, I am a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and I say to all Christians praying for our Nation: Do not be dismayed, rather be assured your prayers have been heard. It is true that the Third Great Awakening is near and God will soon in His timing move to answer these prayers. I have heard the voice of God many times throughout my walk with Him; many people that know me know that this is true. His answer to us has nothing to do with the government of any nation but has everything to do with our relationship with Him. I know that there is soon to be a nationwide event where a word from the Lord will be spoken. What happens next will depend on how the people receive that word. JUDGMENT OR REVIVAL IS COMING SOON, maybe both, but revival cannot come without restoration. Do not concern yourselves over who our president is, he is there because God placed him there. He was placed there because of the sins of our nation; God placed him over us to wake us up. Concern yourselves over the harvest for the fields are white but the laborers are few. We need to concentrate on doing His work because the night soon comes when no man can work. God is giving us time to rise up and help bring in the harvest. When we pray that this man or that man be elected we pray in error, no man is going to change the hearts of the people, we need to pray that our brothers and sisters pick up their crosses and follow Jesus. Too many have laid their crosses down and are waiting on the Lord to pick them up for them. God has called us to be warriors in His army, that doesn’t mean to go around physically attacking people, no our battle is fought on our knees, our weapons are not carnal but spiritual through God, to the pulling down of strongholds, it’s time to put on your armor and take up your sword i.e. the Bible and step onto the battlefield. He spoke to me one time and said: “In the last days many will fall down slain on the battlefield, do not step over them and continue the battle. Stop and pray for them so that they will rise up and continue with you.” It is obvious to me that we are in that battle and from where I’m standing I can see many who have fallen down slain (He was speaking spiritually slain) brothers and sisters it is time for us to pray for those who have been slain. We are not defeated we are just beginning the battle. God called me to be a warrior in 1997, when He called me to the ministry of deliverance and healing, since that time I have seen many, many miracles of God. Many of us know but most do not we are all called to be warriors in His army, the enemy we fight is not man, we need not get discouraged or feel defeated because we find that our brothers and sister and even those who are not Christians are in error and seem to hate us. We need to be aware that they are captives of the enemy and God has called us to help set the captives free. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. We have been given the power and authority to defeat these principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high [places]. WE ARE WARRIORS IN GODS ARMY, THE MIGHTIEST ARMY THE WORLD WILL EVER KNOW. You need to know that when we don our armor and take up our sword we fight with the power of God on our side. Scripture tells us:

Psalms 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalms 91:2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Psalms 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence.

Psalms 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler.

Psalms 91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day;

Psalms 91:6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday.

Psalms 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee.

Psalms 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Psalms 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even] the most High, thy habitation;

Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Psalms 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Psalms 91:12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Psalms 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Psalms 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

Psalms 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

Psalms 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Now is not the time to lay down your sword, now is the time to step onto the real battlefield. To many have been praying for a righteous president, God says He wants our Nation to turn back to Him no matter who our president is, we must know that our salvation and blessings are in Him not in man. He has equipped us to fight this battle to set the captives free and return this nation to Him, help the people turn back to Him. If we do not rise up now then what are we going to answer The Lord when we go before Him and we left so many people behind because we didn’t fight for them. Know this; the backslidden, the atheist, the Christian haters, the homosexual and the lesbian and the liars and deceivers the murderers, the thieves and all the rest are all loved by God. They are captives of the enemy, and He has given us the ability to set them free and bring them home with us. The more of us who take up the battle the more Gods light will shine into this dark world and the captives will be set free and come to the light because they will be able to see the way home. And the enemy will be on the run! I am on the battlefield, will you join me brothers and sisters?
