I was praying with Psalm 79 this morning and verse 9 opened up some thoughts I want to share with you. “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name. And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name’s sake.” Praying this verse the Lord revealed to me, the nation of Israel understood they represented God on the earth. They knew God created them as a nation, God blessed them, God protected them and God’s name was on them. With this knowledge or understanding, when they sinned knew it reflected on the name of the Lord; when being besieged or attacked knew it was God’s name under assault. The oneness between Israel and God was cultural to them, it was who they were. Therefore, when they asked for help it was not for the sake of their name, but for the sake of God’s name, God’s reputation among the nations.
America does not have the current cultural understanding of Israel that we too reflect and are deeply connected to the name of the Lord. Americans look out for themselves, are concerned about their name, their reputation, they are not thinking how what is happening to our nation is a reflection on the name of the Lord our God. Even though, we declare, we are one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. The foundation of our nation as one with God and His name has been eroded over time, but God has not forgotten and He reminded me today. It is not our reputation individually that matters, but God’s reputation corporately among the nations that the enemy is after in our nation.
The Lord is restoring the foundation of our nation, He has been preparing people to arise like Nehemiah’s, Ezra’s and Hezekiah’s to rebuild the foundation of our nation, not for America’s name sake, but for the sake of God’s name, for we are a God-loving, God-fearing, Jesus Christ believing nation and this will be seen again once the foundation is repaired. Not to us, not to us, but to Your name O God be the glory.
The microphone, which is only a tool of amplification, not identification will be passed to the builders who carry a spirit of wisdom and revelation in order to active the builders in our nation. The doors of the church were shut as a prophetic statement, now they are being reopened, as a prophetic statement. God is about to rebuild His foundation in this nation and He has already prepared the builders to do it. Get ready to build, for God is not done with this nation, He is actually ready to begin again with it, for the sake of His name and His glory!
