ARE YOU PESTERING GOD? (The Father’s Importunity) – By Camilla Smith

We live in an environment of endless pursuit of answers.    Many of us are getting feverishly excited as we try to figure out the nearness of the Rapture, study the order of the Father’s “appointed times” (Jewish Feast dates), look for answers to historical mysteries that are being uncovered, and try to pinpoint Bible prophecy and the end game of the wars and final events.   We’re watching harbingers, looking at cycles, crunching numbers, and searching skies and the Scriptures–all of this is necessary and edifying.   Prophecy teachers have put in hundreds, probably thousands of hours trying to help us all put the puzzle together and to their credit, many of them have taught us remarkable things.   We seek answers and signs from our Heavenly Father, but what if He is waiting on us?

What is our call as watchmen on the wall?   Here it is, plainly in Scripture:  Isaiah 62:6-7 tells us “I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, all the day and all the night, continually, who are not silent.  You who remember YHWH, give yourselves no rest, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”

Obviously, He wants us to pray unceasingly about this.   He wants us to come to Him about bringing in His Kingdom.   We’re waiting on Him, while He’s waiting on us!   Watchmen, it is time to start a revolution of approaching our Father respectfully, yet expectantly, in asking for our Marriage to Yahshua to take place.  A Kingdom Come Revolution, if you will.

First, we need to come BOLDLY to the throne rather than being so willy-nilly.  We seldom recognize the authority that we possess as a result of our love for Jesus.  I’ve kicked it into high-gear prayer mode, a step short of demanding (maybe beseech sounds better) that He bring our marriage to the Lamb to a real-time fact rather than our whining and begging every day.  Yes, many God-fearing men came BOLDLY before the throne.  It’s time for our marriage, inheritance, and eternal life with Christ to begin.

God being God will accomplish all of his salvations whether this side of the Rapture or during the Tribulation.   We lovers of Jesus say that it’s high time that our Messiah be elevated throughout the world and that every knee bow to the King of Kings.  Just like the fellow who pounded on his neighbor’s door for bread because of his importunity, we pound our prayers before the throne of God to ACT in our behalf.  Jesus tires of our repenting—we know that we are sinners, but if He can forget our sins, then we must also.

Think about this:  When satan was approaching the throne having to ‘ask’ God if he could put Job thru the ringer, God, knowing Job’s heart and faith, said OK to satans ‘requests’. Now if God allowed satan to test Job, His desire for us is to get serious about ‘demanding that our marriage take place’ may be the very thing holding Him back (tarrying)!   If we pray like that, God will have the legal right to answer us now instead of tarrying. He needs to tell satan that He is obliged to complete His program because the prayers of the saints have reached His Throne.  “The effectual, fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much.”  James 5:16  

While we scramble with day-to-day living, seeking Him, learning, listening and watching, are we earnestly, humbly, yet boldly approaching our Father, asking Him to perform His will?   Are we praying multiple times a day, “Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done”, or are we mumbling our memorized prayers as we drift off?   I’m guilty of this myself–but NO MORE.   From here on out, (and if He sends Jesus for us today, even better),  I resolve to continue to boldly, precisely and specifically importune the Father and give Him NO REST, asking that He fulfill His will, send Yahshua Ha’Mashiach for us, and begin the transformation to eternity with Him.

So where is your heart—here, or Up There?   If it is with Him, in His Kingdom, then let the “petitioning” begin.   He’s given us His permission, even instruction, to do so.   Put this PRAYER INTO PRACTICE every day!  Give Him no rest…No rest.

As I concluded writing this, I had a strong urgency about Jerusalem, and how MUCH the Father loves His Qodesh City.   Saints, it is imperative that we pray for Yerushalayim at this critical time in history.   “For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come.”  Hebrews 13:14.   It is also imperative that we understand how MUCH He loves Her, “The bride, the wife of the Lamb” Revelation 21:9.

Dear Abba Father, my Master, my Adon, please hasten the day when you put your government in place. Those days will see Egypt, Israel, and Syria as friends. Yahshua, we, the world need this, and it is obvious that it can only come through judgment, just like you said. Let the Day of the Lord arrive.  Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done.  Father, we pray Your words for Yerushalayim, “We pray for the peace of Yerushalayim; may they prosper who love you.  Peace within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.”  Father, we pray this in Your Son’s Mighty Name, Yahshua ha’ Mashiach.       

 Your servant(s)

    Dear Brother Terry…We’ve been reading your posts for years & we thank God for someone like you who has helped us to connect the dots of God’s Word that relate to our Saviour’s imminent return. Thank you for bringing it all together in today’s post. We’re joining with you in your prayer. We love God. We love Israel & we love His people, Messianic Jews & those who are soon-to-be heirs of salvation. Thank you for making it clear as to how we can “hasten the day.” God bless you & we love you.

  2. Incredible article filled with truth! We forget who we are as we wait for our Blessed Hope. No more wimpy prayers. I thought of the Lord’s Prayer as I was reading this, and lo and behold, Camilla quoted from it toward the end. Let those of us who yearn and ache for His appearing, BOLDLY and prayerfully say that prayer, but not as we have said it before. Let us say it with the authority given to us by our King!

    Well done, Camilla Smith!

    “Watchmen, it is time to start a revolution of approaching our Father respectfully, yet expectantly, in asking for our Marriage to Yahshua to take place. A Kingdom Come Revolution, if you will.”

    AMEN! I know about Christians who’ve been asking this for a long while (me included). It’s amazing to see that more and more believers are starting to feel the need to ask for the Lord’s soon return to rapture us!

  4. Nora says:

    p.s.: I’d like to add something concerning the case of Job as he was mentioned in the article. It seems that many misunderstand his story. There’s a bit of clearance from Jack Kelley on this topic. (He also wrote a great study series on the “Story of Job”.)

    Well done Camilla – good stuff. You should be a writer!!

  6. SRB says:

    I am joining you in prayer. The Rapture can’t come soon enough for me…this world is definitely not my home.

  7. Fran Cole says:

    Oh yes,oh yes! Come Lord Jesus,fulfill your will for this earth,that one day we WILL see every knee bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father! Come Lord!!!

    Camilla; Terry. You Nailed it, blessed sister. This should move all of us from whining to winning,…….for we have been declared overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit, and called for such an hour as this. It’s WAY past time to get up off the pews and stand in His power and might.

    What a timely and clarion call.

    Now: Do we take up our cross; or do we hit the proverbial snooze button…again? Hmmm,…… It’s also a mandate for those who “profess” Christ to actually demonstrate they POSSESS Christ.

    Ouch…………….?? Thanks for a powerful, accurate, and bold charge to awaken us from our passivity.

  9. Camilla Smith says:

    Thank all of you who were kind enough to leave a comment. I am grateful to be in such a great fellowship of believers who are anticipating the Father’s next move…and our Marriage to Yahshua. Thank you for taking time to read the article and Terry–thank YOU for posting it. Mr. Broadstone–I think you and I have crossed paths before on another forum and I am always grateful for your kind comments and encouraging words. A clarion call it is!

    Praying for the Day! Praying for the peace of Jerusalem!

    Camilla Smith

  10. We must trust God and walk according to His will, so that in due time what the Father has planned comes to pass, it is about our lives or about biblical prophecies.

    Thanks for the Article.

    Camilla, I would love to get your email address. I know you have a larger body of articles, as I’ve searched the RR archive. If you prefer not to post your email identity, I certainly respect that. Otherwise, dear sister, I ‘d love to converse with you. I LOVE your writing and integrity for the Word………

    You mentioned we had shared comments in “another forum”………I have searched but cannot locate that source.
