Moving What is in Heaven Into the Earth

Prayer is a great avenue for moving what is in heaven into earth. In a voice of command, the Lord God spoke to Jeremiah and required that he “call unto” Him (Jer.33:3). Calling unto God has a purpose. It was not a religious exercise that God wanted to observe Jeremiah busy with.  God said, “Call unto me AND I will answer.” It would be in agreement with what God fully intended to do in the earth. God must agree with Himself and with His Word, His will, His plan. God is not without purpose, not without a plan; but there are times when God has been without someone to stand in the gap calling upon Him to move power and authority from heaven into the earth. Eze 22:30  “I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.  Ezekiel does not say that a large company is required but, in v.30, ONE will do.  Lk 18:1  ALSO [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up). (Amp)  1Ti 2:8  I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. Calling unto God in alignment with His plan and purpose moves power and restoration into earth. (See Jer.33:6-14) (Fourth excerpt from Marty’s article “From Heaven to Earth”)
