Defining the War Over Chicago
“Chicago is very important. We watch Chicago to see how the entire Midwest region moves with God. Chicago is the most incredible stronghold in America, but it’s key for the future of this nation. That’s why there’s been such a war over it. We need to see how the demonic spirit is working in Chicago. We see the fruit of it. We read about it in the paper. We see families traumatized by what happens in Chicago. We see how the darkness there even affects the nation. There’s a spiritual war there that has to be torn down so the great harvest can be released.
“The Lord showed me that Abaddon and Apollyon operate from Chicago and affect the nation from there. Their names mean, ‘Destroyer and Destruction.’ These are ancient spirits, but they are latter day spirits. They are forces that must be dealt with. They are spirits that Jesus faced when He descended to deal with death, hell and the grave. They are underworld spirits that must have a right to work with spirits in society. They can only rule when the Church is not enforcing the Kingdom. Underworld spirits are blocked until we give them access. There is no city in America where these spirits are more active. What is active in the spirit manifests in Chicago.” (Chuck Pierce)
“Death and Destruction lie open before the LORD— how much more do human hearts!” (Proverbs 15:11; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Acknowledge the reality of the death and destruction in Chicago.
- Ask the Lord to intervene.
- Intercede for the Body of Christ to realize they must repent of old and current generational iniquitous alignments.
- Say, “Jesus, You hold the keys of death, hell, and the grave. You gave Your Church the right to use them, so we will. We will use them, so the enemy can’t.”
- Intercede for the apostolic leadership in the Chicago area to lead the Ekklesia there to fully and completely uproot and tear down the iniquitous structures there.
- Declare, “The death and destruction in Chicago are coming to an end! It’s Chicago’s time!”
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, there are some bad things going on in Chicago. We can define it and we see the demonic activity. We want to stop it. We don’t want to become hardened or complacent. We are seeing innocent people being killed. Spiritual forces are wreaking havoc in the earth realm. Lord, You hold the keys to death, hell, and the grave. You have given us, the Church, Your right to use them. If we don’t use them, death, hell, and the grave will. What has been released through iniquity and partnership of people, especially His people, with demonic spirits, is manifesting in Chicago. You are ready for these spirits to be uprooted and torn down. You are ready to deal with the roots that have operated and controlled Chicago. Lord, You say to the spirits of Abaddon and Apollyon, “Your days of rule in Chicago are coming to an end. It’s Chicago’s time! It’s the time for the Midwest USA.” Where it has been known as the place of destruction, You say, “That’s coming to an end!” In the mighty and powerful, transforming Name of Jesus, amen!
It’s Chicago’s time! This season is the end of the destruction by the spirits that have ruled there!
