Pastor Caspar's Commentaries - Getting Prayers Answered

Murmuring and complaining basically ignores God's plans and the great potential he sees for you. For example we have the bad report of the ten spies who reflected a godless perspective. Twice we see that Joshua and Caleb exhorted the people not to be afraid and bow down to the spirit of fear. But the Israelites' fear of the unknown, just as people today are fearing the future only continued to fanned the flames of grumbling and complaining in their midst. Papa God had already proven to them many miracles like when he parted the Red Sea to save them, or opened the heavens to feed them, and causing rocks to provide water for them etc. The Lord had repeatedly done amazing things and also defeated mighty armies who sought to harm the Israelites throughout their 40 years in the wilderness trek. The Lord even had freed them from what was considered the most powerful Luciferian nation on the planet at that time who engaged in forbidden knowledge. Sort of like what is happening with CERN today. Certainly the Lord can deal with any problems the Israelites faced to enter into the promised land, but instead they suffered by listening to lies of the devil.  

Seems everyone wants their prayers answered, yet not everyone seems to understand the Lord has given us specific requirements in His Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural to bring this about. One of the first things I see concerning having prayers answered appears in Romans 8:1,"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." If you have a modern translation you probably are missing this part," who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." The Lord knows and sees everything and he even sees the inner motives in your heart. When you are living for the Lord Jesus/Yeshua and understand the same Holy Spirit that resurrected Christ now dwells in you it ought to be easy to follow after the Lord Jesus instead of the sinful ways of the world. I am reminded of Matthew 16:24," Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Also of Romans 6:11," Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."

We also read in Acts 4:13," Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus."

I tell you the truth, spending time with the Lord everyday and studying His Word gives you His supernatural love for all people and a boldness to share Christ's love with them. Even in such troubled end times as we now observe unfolding on the world stage. We are still required to love our enemies, love people even when they are acting unlovable. 2019 may prove to be one of the most pivotal years in the history of this fallen world. Military tribunal trials may surface and expose the plans of the fallen ones, with major political public figures found guilty of treasonous acts. Perhaps this shall be like another Purim story where the Lord saves America, the U.K. and the world from the evil spirit of Haman, and destroys their NWO plans. Giving people one more opportunity before the grand finale.
Preparing our hearts before the Lord is the first place we must begin. What if Stephen, the first Christian martyr had picked up a stone and throw it back at the crowd whilst Saul of Taurus watched the innocent Stephen die, perhaps he would have not become the great apostle Paul later on. However, watching the saint Stephen react in a Christ's like fashion surely impacted his sensibilities and alter his perceptions of reality. 

If we really want our prayers answered consider what the Lord Jesus told us in Matthew 7:7-11 and also in Luke, 11: 9," And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"

Getting our prayers answered appears to me that we keep a close intimate relationship with the Lord our God with a childlike faith who simply depends, honours and trusts in Him for everything. That we lay down all rebellion and experience the awesome love of the Lord Jesus by keeping His commandments.
We see in 1 John 3: 23 ,"And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us."

Let us today begin to do that which is pleasing in His sight by staying in faith no matter how things might look at the moment. After all we read in Hebrews 11: 6," But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27," My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:" Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Because "All", things are possible with God! I pray the Lord's supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
{Be sociable and share}  
We don't have to wait for revival. Every true Christian carries revival, if you're a doer of the Word.
