On Monday, I was invited to a seminar focused on the disturbing world of sex trafficking. Individuals from primarily South American countries shared their knowledge of the industry and what their organizations are doing to put an end to it.
I listened to a woman discuss the emotional torment she endured due to trafficking and how she still sometimes finds herself depressed about what she went through, but then reminds herself she is fortunate to be part of the 2% of woman who are able to obtain freedom from it.
Someone else told us that 2019 was the most successful year for saving victims from sex trafficking, having rescued 118,000 individuals from traffickers. The number astounded me, until he said there is an estimate of 29.5 million victims in captivity to this industry.
We learned about the negative impact COVID lockdowns had on sex trafficking. That when the rest of the world shut down because of fear, perpetrators doubled down and took more victims than ever before. Hearings against offenders was down 50% in 2020, so as the numbers of victims grew, the numbers of those held accountable dropped rapidly.

Though the world is confused in the midst of the chaos brought into it by the devil, I am not
Though the masses find themselves wrapped in fear and anger, I do not
Though the congregations may turn from the Truth, I will not
I know who I am for I know who my God is
My God is a healer, I do not need a vaccine
My God is a provider, I do not need assistance
My God is a divider, I do not need to decide which side He is on
I will stand with my Father until my days are done
I will worship my King even if I worship alone
I will bow down before my Maker all the days of my life

Beth Moore recently tweeted about the dangers of “Trumpism”, stating “I have never seen anything in these United States of America I found more astonishingly seductive & dangerous to the saints of God than Trumpism.”
There’s a lot to unpack here, primarily the fact that she finds “Trumpism” (whatever that is) more seductive and dangerous than false prophets, wayward pastors, the normalization of homosexuality within the church, Christians staying silent regarding abortion…I could go on and on, so, let’s just focus on this: as a fellow Christian and outspoken Trump supporter, I find her comments offensive, inappropriate and juvenile.

This is why I fight, this is why I pray, this is why I will not let go until victory comes.
I work, I fight, to free the underprivileged, the hurt, the abused, the depressed, the victims.
As I sit here, looking at the pictures sent to me of Nigerian orphans, many newly orphaned due to terrorist attacks on their Christian parents, my heart breaks.
I pray for the boys and girls who have lost everything, the women whose husbands vanished while trying to keep them safe, the men whose wives were stolen from them.

This morning, while reading Mark 4, two verses stuck out as pertinent to the times and season the Remnant is in right now.
“Take heed what ye hear.” -Mark 4:24
“Why are ye so fearful? How is it ye have no faith?” -Mark 4:40
We are in a season unlike any other. The voice of God and the voice of man have never been so divided.
Media states a fact, the Remnant a different fact.
The masses believe one thing, the Remnant another.
Some pastors claim submission, others shout for persistence.
So, when I read “take heed what ye hear” my heart was struck.

Lately, I have become concerningly aware of how many spiritually aloof Christians there are.
If you call yourself a Christian and you voted for Joe Biden, you are spiritually aloof.
If you call yourself a Christian and you are not praying for this fraudulent election to be overturned, you are spiritually aloof.
If you call yourself a Christian and are not concerned about the violent, hateful, angry, deceitful direction America is going in, you are spiritually aloof.
Now, calm down, I’m not saying you aren’t saved, but I am saying you aren’t sensitive.

My mind scrambles to focus on one prayer. There are just so many things to be interceding for it has become difficult to focus on just one thing. But, this morning while praying and attempting to hear what it was the Lord wanted me to pray over, a word came to mind: PATIENCE
This morning, I am praying for patience to rest upon God’s children.
I see us, standing behind Moses as he stands in the water, his staff before him. The fire is behind us, the enemy so close we can feel them pressing in. Many have ran to the right and to the left because they fear the waters won’t part. They believe their best chance of survival is to run, to find someplace to hide and to allow the enemy to overtake the masses because they think there is no way to victory.
But, the Remnant waits, desperately looking out over the waters which aren’t yet moving. We know there is no turning back, there is no running away. Regardless of the fact we don’t see it, we don’t hear it, we don’t feel it, we have to believe the waters will separate.

I wrote “God Has Landed” over two years ago, but I do not think this was a Word for 2018.
Instead, I believe this was written as a declaration for what was to come, for what we are witnessing right now.
I, unknowingly, wrote these words years prior to their time. They were seeds planted in 2018, but now they are full grown fruit ready to be plucked.
The below post, although written years ago, is for the Remnant right now, in this unprecedented moment in history. For, I see the Lord like a Lion, all four paws upon the United States. He looks into the eyes of the enemy without fear, without hesitation, then releases a roar so loud the mountains quiver, the earth trembles and the enemy shakes.
He has come, for the cries of His people have reached His ears.
Find encouragement knowing our Lord has heard us. He has felt our desperation, He has left the heavenlies and has come to our nation to decree and declare that HE alone shall be praised, He alone shall be worshiped and He alone shall be exalted.
God has landed.

Yesterday, moments before joining a prayer call, the Lord took me to my laptop, as He has so many times, and gave me words to spread upon the page.
Below is some of what He told me.
Pray for this fallible man.
October 20, 2020
Trump, my fallible man sent to do things only the Infallible can perceive. I have called him forth for such a time as this, formed him in his mother’s womb with this moment in mind.

My thoughts often turn to the season we are in as a country, as a church and as a Remnant. With the election less than four weeks away I find I am praying for November 3, 2020 more than I have ever prayed for a day in my entire life.
I do not believe we are in a season we in the 21st century have ever witnessed. I firmly believe the outcome of the election will dictate our daily lives like we could never imagine. Whatever news we wake up to on November 4, 2020 will change us forever, if we like it or not.
I spent most of last week listening to testimonies of individuals who have experienced, either firsthand or through loved ones, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) concentration camps. While listening to the testimonies, I often thought, “how is it possible this is happening yet nobody is talking about it?”
