Sunday January 8, 2017 “Whose End Is Destruction”

Philippians 3:18-19   For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.”
   Good evening and welcome to the Sunday Night Edition of “We Are the People” prayer for America.  We do wish you a 3John2 New Year.  Our wishes and prayers are for you that you experience prosperity, peace and health in 2017.
  Every Sunday evening we list 3 focus points in prayer so that we can agree and heaven will answer.  Please invest a minimum of 15 minutes in intercession for this land we love and invite others to join us.
  The Apostle Paul was so invested in the work of God that he wept when people failed to embrace the power of the Cross of Jesus Christ. He was heart-sick over the fact that when people lack understanding concerning the finished work of the cross, they will be destroyed.
Focus #1 Feasting, revelry, an unending party is what some promoted as the fruit of Christianity but God speaks of sacrifice, self-denial and fasting of food and pleasure so we might connect with heaven’s will being done on earth.
Pray that the way of destruction which is broad as Jesus taught and many will follow into its path will be revealed to Christians as being erroneous and destructive. Pray that there be a change of appetite to desire the narrow and strait path Jesus lived and offers to believers.
Focus #2  What man glories over is really a shame. Pray that the accomplishments of men which seem to be great outwardly in religious circles be exposed for what it truly is – a work of flesh that brings shame like the Golden Calf in Israel’s history.
Focus #3  Enemies of the cross are carnally-minded people who measure success by numbers and seats. This can happen even when in the house of God. Pray tonight that these idols of men’s ideas will be exposed, rejected by true believers and that the focus of Christians in America be fixed upon prayer, building lives on God’s Word and sacrifice.
