As the Lord continues to shake all that can be shaken in all nations, many are sensing the need to get ready for His soon coming.
The word says in Ephesians 5:27 that the Lord, having loved the church and given Himself for her, has sanctified and cleansed her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
We see that we are called to remove old sin patterns, to purify, to become more holy as He is holy, “perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1). ” Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” (1 John 3:3).
With this promise of the Lord Jesus’ return for a glorious church, and having received the indwelling Holy Spirit, each of us is now by His love, a temple of the living God.
We, as His Bride, can join together to be cleansed from the world and the flesh. Global days of repentance are a powerful way to join together to bring forth the cleansing of the Bride.
We can each have a special “walk” with our Teacher, the Holy Spirit, and at the same time experience the JOY of pursuing His holiness with others in many nations. We expect to experience His love, His joy, His peace as we take up His path towards His purity.
April 30 has special significance to the United States of America. On that day in 1789 the first President, George Washington, took the oath of office, adding “so help me God.” That statement created a deep spiritual link to the Lord’s plan for the nation which was further emphasized as the President in his inaugural speech called for the nation to protect the “sacred fire of liberty.”
April 30 in 1863 was then the date of one of three days of “Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer” called for by Congress and President Lincoln during the Civil War, helping end that horrific conflict.
April 30, 1974 was the Day approved by the United States Senate to address spiritually the Watergate scandal, using President Lincoln’s 1863 “Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer” language. The House of Representatives failed to support that Resolution, and the day was not then held. A request has been made for the House to do so this year, 2023.
April 30 always precedes the first Thursday in the month of May, a day set by Congress for a national day of prayer. Thus repentance precedes prayer.
May this April 30, 2023 become a renewal of the “so help me God” declaration of President Washington. May it establish the “sacred fire of liberty” in many hearts and nations.
Thus, please JOIN US on the Global Day of Repentance and Register for the 40 Day Repentance Cleanse on our Global Repent Website, building up to a Global Day of Repentance Fasting and Humiliation, on April 30th, 2023!!
