God did not allow King David, a mighty warrior, to build His temple. This was because God called David a man of war. The same application of truth applies to us today. We are the bride of Christ ~ and she is to be presented before Christ without spot or wrinkle. Therefore, our hands cannot be stained with the blood of battle.
Two weeks ago the Lord told me to pray for the angels of God to remove “activists” ~ people who are offensively fighting problems when they should’t be. God’s holy army is ready to remove the tares that have been planted among good wheat. God’s holy angelic army can intricately remove evil spirits that are affecting people. But sometimes people may be so badly infected that eventually the physical person has to be removed. God doesn’t want to damage the good wheat. He wants prayer warriors all over America releasing angelic power! You and I were never supposed to accomplish removing activist tares; the angels of God war on our behalf. This is a clear instruction in the book of Matthew given to us by Jesus: “The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.”
The apostle Paul explained the reason for our inactivity is so we can remain pure. Paul said, “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in His presence.”
If you claim that your organizational skills and influence over people caused some great religious benefit to happen to the church or nation, than you are disqualified from the purity the Lord is looking for in His bride. It all happens through Christ. God has shown me how simple and childlike I must be. I am completely dependent upon His power, His activity, and the angelic armies of God to defend everything that God said He was going to do. It has gotten to the point that the prophet Paul Cain told me, “Richard, there is great reward when you quit trying to ask God why. Just simply obey.”
I am learning to shut my reasoning mind down and simply obey Him with childlike faith. At this point the Spirit then warns me, incredibly accurately, when negative attacks are about to happen ~ and how I can avoid them completely. It totally amazes me how God is protective over His children, lest there would even be the chance they might “dash their foot against a stone.” Such love I had never known until recently, and it’s wonderful! It’s Disneyland, and I feel we’re ready to have the dream castle experience of roalty in His reign ~ the glorious bride without spot or wrinkle!
