Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb [Christ] has come, and His Wife [Spiritual Church, Congregation] HAS MADE HERSELF READY. And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the RIGHTEOUS ACTS OF THE SAINTS. (Revelation 19:7-8)
This morning, when I was in prayer, I was given a very short vision of an all encompassing thick wall of protection around God’s people. This wall had large doors that were open, and God’s people could come and go as they pleased. God our Father then said:
“Be patient, My Love, for all things are closing. I’m closing My doors around Mine Children before My wrath comes upon My earth and against those in the world. My doors remain open because of My peoples’ [righteous] prayers that all be saved, Amen Amen and again Amen.” Jesus then reminded me of the following scripture:
And He [Jesus] said to them, “Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within and say, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you’? I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.
“So I say to you, ASK [pray], and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and IT WILL BE OPENED TO YOU. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and TO HIM WHO KNOCKS IT WILL BE OPENED. If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM!”
Be a hope upon the earth for Mine Name sake. Your faith and prayers keep My doors open longer than originally planned. For this reason, Mine Children, wait patiently in constant prayer for the lost. Within My gift, the faith that brings eternal life to earth, Mine stand as one people within My Holy Spirit (see Acts 17:26). (1)Their prayers are as Abraham’s righteous prayers: that I save the righteous (one righteous man). I saved Lot, and not Sodom; but Abraham’s prayers were heard (see Romans 4:3). (2)Abraham and Lot were, and are my righteous men.
Never give in, and never give up, Children. Hold the wall in place. It nurtures and protects Mine, as their sacrificial prayers keep My doors open so that more of the now lost, soon saved, can enter in (see Heb 13:12-15). The doors, once they are closed, will not open until all things are made new (see Rev 21:5). Stand as one people and you will be counted as one with Christ: who is now on earth for Mine on earth, even more than He is in heaven, Amen Amen and again Amen.
Trust Me, My time is soon, Amen.”
(1) “Their prayers are as Abraham’s righteous prayers”:
Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord.
And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes [the sake of the righteous].”
Then Abraham answered and said, “Indeed now, I who am but dust and ashes have taken it upon myself to speak [today we say “pray”] to the Lord: Suppose there were five less than the fifty righteous; would You destroy all of the city for lack of five?”
So He said, “If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it.”
And he spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose there should be forty found there?”
So He said, “I will not do it for the sake of forty.”
Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?”
So He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.”
And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?”
So He said, “I will not destroy it [Sodom] for the sake of twenty.”
Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?”
And He said, “I will not destroy it [Sodom] for the sake of ten.” So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.
Notice that, in the scripture above, Abraham was never given a chance to lower the count below ten. After the Lord said He would not destroy Sodom if He could find ten righteous people, we are told that God “went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place.” It was God who ended their conversation.
Matthew Henry Commentary:
“Genesis 18:23-33 Here is the first solemn prayer upon record in the Bible; and it is a prayer for the sparing of Sodom. Abraham prayed earnestly that Sodom might be spared, if but a few righteous persons should be found in it. Come and learn from Abraham what compassion we should feel for sinners, and how earnestly we should pray for them. We see here that the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man [and/or woman] avails much. Abraham, indeed, failed in his request for the whole place [Sodom], but Lot [who is also called righteous in 2 Pet 2:7] was miraculously delivered.”
[Note: This conversation, between God and Abraham, included all “righteous” women and children, as well as men.]
(2) “Abraham and Lot were, and are my righteous men”:
“For what does the Scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.’ Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, HIS FAITH IS ACCOUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works...” (Romans 4:3-6)
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and DELIVERED RIGHTEOUS LOT, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds). (2 Peter 2:4-8)
