In my time in prayer the Lord spoke to me that it’s time for all cold wars to come to an end. At the same time, that song by John Lennon kept ringing in my mind, Give Peace a Chance. The Lord is saying that there are many people in the Body of Christ who have participated in cold wars, and some of those for many years, where you’ve allowed division between you and your brother or sister in Christ to go on. The Lord said it’s time for that to come to a stop. It’s time for each person who’s participated in cold wars, as much as it is up to them to be at peace with all men. He’s never been pleased with these cold wars, but He will no longer tolerate them. For people who have participated actively in cold wars, who have willed those cold wars, who are not just a victim of a cold war, but are perpetuating cold wars, the Lord says your excuses will no longer hold up, and the consequences will now begin to manifest. He will begin to set you aside and not use you the way He wants to, for the testimony of your cold wars grieves His heart and sheds a dark shadow over the good news of the kingdom of God. All cold wars must come to an end, regardless of the reasons, no matter how deep the hurt, no matter what’s happened, it’s time for the cold wars to stop.
