Recently while praying for our nation, the Lord posed a question to me. He asked,"Where is the RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION?"

Let's look at these two words separately ~~

*righteous ~ upright, moral, virtuous, godly, genuine, excellent, without guilt or sin, honest, fair, morally justifiable ~ ~ opposite is evil and wicked
*indignation ~ strong displeasure at something considered unjust, offensive, or insulting ; righteous anger; exasperation; wrath; anger aroused by something unjust; passion

Now, actually has a definition for the two words together ~~

*RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION ~ retributive justice; anger and contempt combined with a feeling that it is one's right to feel that way; anger without guilt

Let's pose the question again. "Where is the RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION"?

So, what is the Lord saying?

I believe He is asking the church (that's right, the church) about our lack of action, about our complacency (you know what it means, no need to look it up), even our apathy! And what it all boils down to is SELFISHNESS!!! We are too busy doing OUR thing to have time to do HIS thing! We are so caught up in our day to day "busyness" that we either don't see the seriousness of what is going on around us (in other words, we are ASLEEP) , or, we pretend we don't see and hope that someone else will take care of the problems, while we go on and cater to "self"!

What He wants to know is this ~~

* the murdering of thousands of innocent babies every day
* the abolishment of the family unit as God intended it to be
* our GREAT and FREE nation being made into a socialist nation ~ and possibly coming under martial law
* the Word of God being taken from the pulpit
* pastors being jailed for saying the Name of Jesus
* millions of people, mostly women and children, being sold into a life sex/slave trafficking
* banks, big business and big government are in charge of our economy and running our country and our world into a mess on purpose so they can move ahead with their One World, One Currency plans
* the so-called Healthcare Plan is gonna kill off a huge percentage of us in the long run because government will decide who is worthy enough to receive care to live longer
* prayer, God's Word and God Himself being completely removed from society ~ and one day from our own homes
* _________________________ (fill in the blank, there are plenty more)

I know there are lots of individuals, churches, businesses, ministries, etc that are working hard and doing a LOT to fight the anti-Christ spirit/system that has risen up against us! But, as a whole, we MUST do MORE! It's good and right to pray for justice to be done, but there has to be more than that! We must do ACTS of justice! Don't just pray for an end to abortion, go out to the mills and be part of a Silent Siege and Rescue to save the babies, the Moms and the Dads, and help them into God's Kingdom! Be willing to adopt their baby if necessary! Don't just pray for legislation and laws to be changed, start petitions, get them signed and bring them to the legislative sessions and SPEAK to the members! Don't just vote, call and write those who are running for public office, long before election time, until they are tired of hearing from you and see that you mean business! Run for office of that is possible! We have to BE the change we want to see!

Speaking for myself, I can tell you that RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION is rising up in me! I sense something in myself that has not happened to me before! I made a declaration to the Lord many years ago, giving Him permission to do whatever He had to do in me, and vowed that I would do WHATEVER He asked of me, even unto death! I meant it then and I mean it even more now! I take it serious as I know He also does! These were not words I said without thinking! I don't know what this means for me, but I know that I will serve Him and Him alone! I will NOT bow my knee to another! I know it won't be easy, but His grace is sufficient as I keep my eyes focused on the Cross! I say this because I know there will come a day when it will be required of me ~ of each of us ~ if we are standing for TRUTH!

God's heart is breaking for those who are suffering injustice! And He has done something to my heart! I can't stand the ache that is there for the innocent, the broken, etc!

Time is short! The time to act is NOW! We were all born for such a time as this!!!!!
