A "NOW" WORD FROM HEAVEN
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1-2. My Dear Praying Friends, if it has ever been a time of sinful darkness upon the people and the land, it surely is today! Yet, this same scripture goes on to say that when this happens, the Lord shall arise upon His people, which are you and me, and at this time of terrible darkness--HIS GLORY SHALL BE SEEN UPON US. Granted, this is a great hour of darkness, but in Isaiah 59:19 it reads, “…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Today in 2012, our God in Jesus’ name is still doing the same - RAISING UP A STANDARD AGAINST THE ENEMY. Who is this standard today? It is you and I, moving in UNITED PRAYER for revival to come to this country. As we pray for repentance followed by revival, it will come. We started praying in the unity of the faith for many cities this year, but one that we needed to truly pray for was New Orleans, La. There were people praying specifically for this city throughout this nation. All cities are important; all need revival, but New Orleans was first and foremost. As we all know, there is a strong spirit of darkness and sinfulness that affects the whole nation. This spirit must come down and our Jesus will help us and has already begun. Even though hurricane Isaac recently came through New Orleans and surrounding areas with strong winds and rain, the damage did not destroy the city. To God be the Glory!
SPIRITUAL DELAY OF REVIVAL
As I understand, in the beginning months of 2012, there was a warning given by a woman prophetess that if the people and leaders did not respond and repent there was great destruction coming to New Orleans. (This woman was not me.) On the contrary, I went to the people in the beginning of this year, right after that word was given and declared that New Orleans would not be destroyed, if the leaders worked together, and prayed fervently that repentance would come to New Orleans. I also spoke of the spiritual delay of revival, because of jealousy, envy and strife in the area and in most cities today. We want the popular speaker, some Christian celebrity, or someone with a doctorate degree to come to our church or our area to bring forth revival. I can tell you it is not going to happen! We can go on to the ends of the earth searching for celebrities or speakers and will not find them. Why? Because HE, the REVIVAL WORKER can be found, not on this earth, but rather in heaven as the “GOD OF HEAVEN.”
HE CALLED MY NAME
In the beginning of this year when God called my name to go to New Orleans, I had to be very sure. You see, most Christians think it is an exciting thing to go do spiritual warfare in New Orleans; but I know I will only go if God calls my name and He goes with me. The Lord has shown me over the years that certain territories which are possessed with evil powers and principalities, He only assigns. I cannot go on my own presumption. You see, the powers and principalities that are there in that city can destroy you and even kill you if you go without God’s covering for that specific battle. Just because you are an anointed child of God does not mean that you have been appointed. To fight these giants you must be a holy warrior walking in holiness. “Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” II Corinthians 7:1. After I settled the matter in my heart that it was Him who was calling my name and as His servant on command, I obeyed and went. Over the weeks I shared that if we would continue to work together and pray, He was not going to destroy the city. Why? Because He had a people, a remnant that He loved. There is a short time left to do this work and we had to move quickly. What we needed to do was to seriously continue to cry out for repentance and revival to come. Many Pastors, and leaders began to hear even more clearly and prayed fervently for their city; and you and I throughout the nation faithfully prayed in the unity of the faith, supporting the New Orleans brethren that repentance, followed by revival, would be poured out upon New Orleans and the nation.
PRAY FOR EVERY STREET
Among the many strategies of prayer we have been involved in, one was to pray for every street in New Orleans, against the murder and crime wave upon that city. We still continue to send out the prayer request for the streets. Right now one of the most important things to pray for is the stopping of the shedding of blood through abortions, crime and murder. Since the beginning of this year, there have been 160 murders there, plus all the rapes, thefts and other crimes. Spilt blood will bring judgment to any nation and especially cities like New Orleans and others. Now I know that blood is spilt in both small and big cities. But the spilling of blood is always more in a big city and that’s when evil begins to tip the scales of judgment. You see there’s always been evil in our cities and nation, but there was more “good” tipping the scales; therefore, judgment would not fall. Now with the laws of God being thrown out and evil laws accepted, the blood is running in our streets from abortions, murders, killings etc. Then this is what happens, evil tips the scales and judgment falls on our cities and nation. If the spilling of blood continues, we are not guaranteed that there will be no weather judgments.
GOD IS HEARING OUR PRAYERS
Just recently Israel celebrated the Feast of Rosh Hashanah followed by Day of Atonement and then Tabernacles. God speaks spiritually to me through the feasts. I have been celebrating the spiritual side of the feast under the new covenant for about 28 years now and He always speaks during the festivals. Carrying Jewish blood in my veins might have something to do with that, but I really don’t know. God speaks to me by the Holy Spirit in what He is doing on the earth, what He is going to do and many times, how He is going to do it through the festival seasons throughout the year. Is God hearing our prayers for revival and repentance? Rosh Hashanah was celebrated this past September 16, 2012 followed by the Days of Atonement, which lasts ten days, bringing in the high day of Yom Kippur. What are the ten days for? For the lukewarm people which are the ones that were not all bad, but yet not all good, kind of straddling the fence (so to speak) are given ten days to search their hearts and get it right before God. Then on Yom Kippur, depending on their repentance, they are either judged for hurt or blessed by rewards. I truly believe what I’ve heard from the Holy Spirit is that the old year closed off and the New Spiritual Year opened with great mercy for us because of all the united prayer.
JESUS IS THE LIGHTHOUSE
I was told by a friend, and after doing some research, found out that the New Canal Lighthouse on the West End--Lakeshore Drive was practically destroyed during Hurricane Katrina, but has been worked on and rebuilt. On Yom Kippur this year, 2012, the Light House was lit at sun down, after seven years of darkness. This is the Word from Heaven that I have heard for us in October, 2012, after the festivals. God has begun to hear the prayers and cries of the people of New Orleans and around the nation. Earlier, I mentioned the people in the nation that so faithfully prayed and supported New Orleans with their prayers. God has therefore given us one more year to continue to work hard for revival. First and foremost, tear down the wicked works of darkness at the gates of New Orleans and the nation. There is an evil upcoming holiday in October that must be uprooted from the cities in America and especially New Orleans. Those celebrations bring much darkness, evil, murder and all sorts of crimes into our cities. Let us pray and push back the works of darkness – Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. The New Orleans Lighthouse lit a few weeks back on Yom Kippur at sundown is our sign to go forth and continue to bombard the gates of heaven with prayer. Cry, weep and do not let go of the horns of the altar until revival comes! Our Precious Savior Jesus Christ said this to us; “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12.
America must once again become that “Beacon of Light” to the world. Remember that Yom Kippur began at sundown; therefore, it is not quite night yet. The sun is just going down; let us quickly move in UNITED PRAYER and let us love one another and let God be Glory! Dear Praying Friends, There are still many needs here at NDCP and as my friends, I ask you to pray for us that our God in Jesus’ name provides all those needs. We are believing Jesus for miracles. We love you and pray that our Jesus keep you always. In His love and service, hilda arredondo
