Restoration of Everything Satan
CBN Staff Writer
-- Prophecies for 2005 are already beginning to come to
the body of Christ. Last night at a prayer meeting at the church
I attend, the pastor shared that he believed God was calling the
year 2005 as the year of “rest.”
Resting sounded like a wonderful thing to do. But since we should
be preparing for the end-times, I didn’t understand how
we had the time to spare by doing nothing.
Then the Lord spoke to my heart this acronym:
Wow! The picture of getting back all that they enemy has stolen
from us would certainly line up with progress in spite of the
lack of struggle. I could not help but think of the word striving
and realized that with rest … all striving would cease.
We could see God prospering us financially, spiritually, physically,
and know that in every area of our lives, we would know victory.
I pictured our churches filling up without the gimmicks we are
using to attract the lost. Away with the free turkey if you visit.
Away with the competition to come up with the sharpest looking
church Web site. And away with the yard sales, candy sales, etc.
in order to raise money for various church building projects.
God is going to give back to the church all that Satan took.
He has robbed us of our finances, lured our loved ones into sin,

Here is a promising scripture:
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs

be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never
fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise
up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken
Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. (Isaiah 58:11-12)
The Lord has promised to guide, satisfy, prosper, refresh, rebuild,
raise up, repair, and restore his people. The church of 2005 will
be a mighty church that will be able to do more and will not have
to try so hard for the results.
This sounds unbelievable I know, but I believe it. Our God is
a God of increase and blessing. He will hear and answer our prayers
as we declare what He says about things and then we begin believing
Why don’t you join me in trusting God for many surprising
miracles in the new year ahead? Let’s see what great and
mighty works He will do if we let Him.
