The following was taught and prayed through during our 9:30 a.m. family prayer time with Sue DeGroot
We are praying towards that Word that will pierce our family members’ hearts, to be saved from this perverse, crooked, wicked generation.
Acts 2:38-40 AMPC
And Peter answered them, Repent (change your views and purpose to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of rejecting it) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of and release from your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself.
40 And [Peter] solemnly and earnestly witnessed (testified) and admonished (exhorted) with much more continuous speaking and warned (reproved, advised, encouraged) them, saying, Be saved from this crooked (perverse, wicked, unjust) generation.
Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made [a]straight
And the rough places smooth;
Deuteronomy 32 -speaks of the characteristics of those in a perverse, crooked generation -foolish, unwise, no faith/counsel/understanding)
*Verse 18-My people perish because of lack of knowledge = they have let it go / forgotten
But those SEEDS that have been sown into them will not remain dormant or barren any longer.
