The following is from Pat Dunnick, pictured, of Windom, Minnesota, an AWESOME woman of God. Pat will be speaking at The Windom Revival in November! My post on crime in Albuquerque that Pat is referring to is at the bottom of her post.
This morning I saw your post about your city and it stayed with me, as I read HOSEA CHAPTERS 4-7…IT WAS GOD this time wanting them to know HIM, but they do not. BOTH want the same thing, and yet it seems no one wants to change. It reminded me of praying for our city years ago. In fact we gathered together, and met purposely to ask GOD what were the strongholds…there was about 20…about 10 were teens…and we each had a paper and pencil. ..we prayed for the HOLY SPIRIT TO GIVE US A LIST OF STRONGHOLDS….AND THEN quietly waited and each one wrote what they heard HIM SAY TO THEM. It was a pretty big list. THEN WE USED THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM…( Matthew 16:19 ) AND IN AGREEMENT PRAYER…WE BOUND UP AND CAST OUT EACH SPECIFIC STRONGHOLD AND THEN WE (FOUND A SCRIPTURE ) AND LOOSED GOD’S WORD IN IT’S PLACE. THIS TOOK A LOT OF TIME..BUT WE WERE IN AGREEMENT. AFTER WE FINISHED THE LIST, WE SPLIT INTO GROUPS OF 2 OR 3 AND WALKED EACH BLOCK PRAISING GOD …ALLEYS, SIDEWALKS. …ALLEYS ND IF BY DISCERNMENT SOMETHING ELSE WAS SHOWN, IT WAS BOUND AT THAT TIME AND GOD’S WORD WAS LOOSED IN IT’S PLACE. WE ALL RETURNED AND SHARED…. ISAIAH 62 :12…” And they shall call them, The Holy people, The redeemed of The LORD: and thou shalt be called SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN.” So many people from this city share the Love of the LORD on FB! I PRAY THAT Albuquerque is not given up on…but is SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN, TOO!
Here is my post………
KOB TV News Reporter: Crime is so high in Albuquerque some business people are sleeping in their businesses with guns. The news reporter has had his home broken into and car stolen! Albuquerque has become so very dangerous. PRAY for the soul of Albuquerque. We have a friend whose car was stolen 3 times!!!KOB TV REPORT
KOB TV news reporters asking some very good questions about Albuquerque crime! Thank you! My comment: Where are you Mayor Berry and Gov Martinez? This is an emergency you need to answer the phone.
Please Mayor and Gov. take off your Chamber of Commerce hats and serve us please…tell us the truth, deal with the facts. This is an emergency.
We all are at risk to be the next crime victim. Show us you care about us!
So many tell me that they do not come to Albuquerque anymore because of the violent crime.
Remember God can’t bless this mess unless New Mexico stops murdering His babies through abortion.
There is no political solution, the Democrats and Republicans as a whole have walked away from God and the America I once knew. Jesus is the only answer.
“So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts” Eph 4: 17, 18.
The Scriptures call the mind of the natural man “blinded” 2 Cor. 4:4, “depraved” Romans 1:28, “corrupt” 1 Tim. 6:5, and “unspiritual” Col. 2:18. The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan and can never please God because it concentrates on things of the world and not things of the Spirit. The natural mind walks the road of hopelessness and self-destruction.
