God is speaking to the Nations

This post is an unusual one for me but I must do as the Lord impressed upon me.

Father we commit the people of Haiti into your hands. I pray that the Holy Spirit, the Comforter would envelope them with your love right now. May they feel your presence near and know that you have not forsaken them in this time of uncertainty and grief. Bless them with a closer walk with you that will give them peace in their hearts. May these painful experiences work to draw them to you the only one who can heal wounded hearts. Provide for their needs Lord and let not the enemy, the devil triumph over them with depression. In Jesus name I pray with thanksgiving Amen.

As I prayed for the people of Haiti over the last few days and pondered about their plight, he Holy Spirit spoke into my spirit the words "GOD IS SPEAKING TO THE NATIONS". I kept that word and pondered some more on them and then asked the Lord "So what is the message?" He dropped into my spirit - "EXCEPT YE REPENT YE SHALL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH!".

As we reflect on Haiti's condition let us be mindful that it could easily be our nation. Let us be mindful that the Lord does not wish to harm anyone but in addition to being a God who is love, he is also a God of wrath. Pay attention to accounts in the Bible in past time when God would deal with nations severely because they refused to heed his warnings to them. Haiti's condition is terrible and we ought to send all the hellp and prayers their way that we can but let us look at and examine ourselves and take heed that we should get and keep ourselves right with God.  It could easily be us.  For those who are sensitive some graphic pictures follow.

No water to drink


Many wounded


Family members cannot be found


Many dead amidst the rubble


 Many are homeless



There is a glimmer of hope in the midst of the trouble.  It starts first with the godly.  2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name , shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
My heart goes out to the nation of Haiti and my heart goes out to the nations of this world.  We are called to return to the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.

Remember Nineveh!

Jonah 1:1-2 - Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

Jonah 3:5-10 - So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.  For the word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.  And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water: But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.  Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not:  And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do to them; and he did it not. 

Remember Sodom and Gomorra!
Genesis 18:20-21 - And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin in very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not I will know.
Genesis 19:24-25 - Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upn Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
Genesis 19:28 - And he(Abraham) looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace. 

2 Peter 2:6 - And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly;

Warnings came to both nations.  One was wiped out and the other was not.  What was the difference?  The attitude of the heart. 

This article is not about whether the nation of Haiti deserved God's punishment or whether they had it coming.  That is so not important right now.  They need our help.  I just cannot ignore what the Lord spoke to my heart for us the rest of the world.  We the rest of the world should take heed to ourselves while we give Haiti the much needed help understanding that 1 Corinthians 10:12 says - Wherefore let him that thinks he stand take heed lest he fall.

Father, I commit the nations into your hands.  I pray that we would repent and turn to you will all our heart, soul, mind and strength.  I pray that we would not turn a blind eye to the nation in need but that we would do all in our power to help them.  I pray Lord that as we help them we would consider ourselves and remain humble before you knowing that it could easily be us.  May the hearts of the leaders of every nation turn in sorrow to you as the leader of Nineveh did.  I pray repentance for the nations starting from the head to the rest of us.  Draw us to yourself.  Reconcile the nations to yourself Lord as this is the purpose you sent your son Jesus Christ of Nazareth for.  Amen.,,


  1. I totally agree with you. God is truly speaking to the Nations, but will we hear his voice? Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. God's wrath will come, but we must repent and turn from our evil ways, then he will heal the land. I appreciate this post!
