The Next Generation Will Go Further – In Intimacy With Him

The re-taking of Hebron prepared the way for the next generation to accomplish its destiny. After he conquered this city, Caleb went to the city next door, Kiriath Sepher. He said to those with him, “I showed you how to do it. Now, who’s going to go take that city?” His nephew, Othniel, said, “I’ll do it.” The spirit of Caleb had gotten onto Othniel. He basically said, “If Uncle Caleb can do it…” He must have realized that it wasn’t about Caleb. He knew it wasn’t about the size of the giant or the stronghold, or the underworld. It was all about how strong his faith was. And, Caleb’s faith was not in himself. He had the Spirit of faith with him. His faith was not in his own ability. So, that Spirit of faith jumped on Othniel.

 Othniel conquered his city and he renamed his city, also. He named his city “Debir”. Debir is another name for the Holy of Holies. Debir comes from the root word “dabar”, which means “word” or “Oracle”. Since the Holy of Holies is the place from which God spoke, the Hebrews called the Holy of Holies, “the Oracle of the House”. In Hebrew it would be, “the debir of the House”. In other words, “That’s the place from which God talks.” The word “Word” in “the Word of the Lord” is the word “dabar”. It was almost as if Othniel was saying, “Uncle Caleb, if you can have intimacy with Him, and you can rename the city ‘friendship’,  my generation can go even farther. We can live in the innermost sanctuary of the Lord.”

Othniel represents the Word of the Lord being re-established. The result is intimacy with God.

“Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • In light of the article above, meditate on today’s scripture: “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16; NASB)
  • Also, carefully consider Romans 10:8, “But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart;’ that is, the word of faith, which we preach.” (WEB)
  • Talk to the Lord about giving you greater revelation on being the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Living Word of God dwells in you, that temple. How can you not experience a new level of intimacy with the One you Who is indwelling you?
  • Worship Him. 
  • Ask for an increase of faith from the generation that has gone before you.
  • Intercede for the generation behind you. Pray they will have an even deeper level of intimacy than you do. 

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are going to see deliverance come to this generation. We are going to see cities rebuilt, even inner cities rebuilt. We’ll see families restored. We will see a generation arise that are empowered with the spirit of Caleb and Othniel. We are going to see transformation. We are going to see awakening and reformation. We are going to understand that we are the temple of the Living God, the Holy God, the one true God, the one and only God. God, the Holy Spirit, You indwell us. We should look different and act different than the world around us, not in some strange, religious way, but because of Your Presence with us. Give us a fresh passion for Your Word. Fill us with Your Word and teach us. Let it transform our hearts, our lives, and everything we do and speak into. Let faith speak from us. Let hope be expressed through us. Let revelation of You change us and draw others to You in us. Let the next generation watch us and want what we have. We don’t want them repelled by our religiosity, but compelled by our intimacy with You in Jesus Name. Amen. 

Today’s decree:

Let Your Words in my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, draw the next generation to You, Lord, my strength, and my redeemer!

Turning Cities of Death Into Cities of Life

When Caleb re-took Kiriath-Arba and renamed it Hebron, he was restoring the city to its destiny. Satan always comes to distort or pervert God’s purpose. So, this city of Hebron, pictures covenant—friendship with God. Satan came and said, “I’m going to make it a stronghold of division, of idolatry, of death, corruption, evil, control, and fear.” Caleb transformed that city back into covenantal friendship with God. 

I believe God so wants to transform Chicago that it becomes not just a business hub, but is restored as a spiritual hub. People from all over the world will once again go there to seek the Lord. There will be something there again that people can tap into. Death won’t rule Chicago. Life will rule Chicago. God will even redeem gangs and gang members. He will rule over the inner cities in America and bring revival to places of great darkness! He will even transform the governments of these cities. 

Cities like Chicago will become cities that people run to, instead of somewhere they want to run from. People will find refuge and protection. These cities of great darkness will begin to paint a picture of the Lord, Himself.  

“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.” (Matthew 11:28-30; TPT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Can cities be so transformed by God through the prayers of the saints, that they completely turn around and become cities of refuge? Can they become cities people run to instead of from?
  • Can neighborhoods of death become strongholds of life and safety and salvation?
  • Call for Life to rule in Chicago. Call forth Life into other cities the Lord lays on your heart where death is the current stronghold.
  • Pray Matthew 11:28-30 over Chicago any darkness-infested cities near you.
  • Call for gang members to repent and turn to God. They are the hardest of the hard, but they are not too hard for God.
  • Say, “Revival is coming to America’s inner cities!”
  • Intercede for government structures in major cities to be transformed.

A prayer you can pray:

Oh God! Father! Come to Chicago and our nation’s other dark, demon-infested cities. Get Your Church praying like never before, Holy Spirit. Get the Saints up and praying until the darkness abates and the cities show forth the Light and Life of Christ. There are cities, even neighborhoods, in this country where darkness causes people to want to run away. Turn them completely around until people are running to them to find You, to find life and peace and refreshing and rest. That seems impossible, but nothing is impossible for You and Your praying Church. We pray that specifically for Chicago. It is a model city of darkness. Turn it into a model city of Life! We say what Jesus is saying to the people of Chicago and other dark cities, “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to Jesus. He is extending to you an invitation, ‘I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.’” Wow, who can resist that invitation? Not even gang members will resist it. They will turn to Christ en masse. They will lead so many others to Jesus, because of their testimonies. Revival is coming to America’s inner cities! Residents will be transformed and governments will be transformed! In the mighty, transforming Name of Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Lord is going to flip our country’s darkest cities into cities of light and life and peace and safety!

Take Authority, Then Take Down the Giants

Before Caleb went to fight the giants in the land, Joshua gave him a city. Moses had given it to Joshua. Here’s what I want you to see. God does not wait until the giant is defeated before He announces the transfer of ownership for that city. Joshua said to Caleb, “I have full authority to give you this city. I don’t care how many giants are up there. I’m announcing today, ‘It’s your city!’”

Most of the Church does not think this way. Most of the Church waits until all the demons and all the strongholds are gone before they start acting like they own it. But, God says, “You have to act on it now. You have to believe Me now. You have to call what’s yours now. Then, you can go kick out the giants! So, I say over Chicago, for example, that the stronghold has been uprooted. It has been torn down. This city belongs to the Lord! His people are successful and victorious in battle.

“So Joshua blessed Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and gave Hebron to him as his portion of land. Hebron still belongs to the descendants of Caleb, son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, because he wholeheartedly followed the Lord, the God of Israel. (Previously Hebron had been called Kiriath-Arba. It had been named after Arba, a great hero of the descendants of Anak.)” (Joshua 4:13-15; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “Lord, we are going to call what is not, as if it is!”
  • Declare, “The Lord has given us this city! We receive it as our inheritance from Him! We call it a beautiful and righteous city. We call God’s people here successful and victorious in battle. We say it is ours.”
  • Proclaim, “We are going to get the giants out, no matter how many there are or how strong they are. If He gave this city to us, no matter how bad it is, He will show us how to clean it up and cause it to glorify Him.” 

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are going to call what is not, as if it is! We take hold of the gift of faith, which You are giving us. We believe You have given us this city! We receive it as our inheritance! We call it a beautiful city. It is a righteous city. We say that it is filled with revival and awakening. We see the great harvest of souls happening here. We call Your Church here successful and victorious in battle. We say that this city is ours. We declare that we are going to get all the giants out, no matter how many there are or how strong they are. The giants are no match for Your people filled with faith and the Word of the Lord. You have given this city to us, so no matter how bad it is, You will show us how to clean it up and cause it to glorify Your beautiful Son, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

This city (name it) belongs to the Lord!

A Heart Like Caleb’s

It takes a “Caleb heart” to capture strongholds. He was a man of faith that the Bible says followed the Lord fully. He cared about the reputation of the Lord and about covenant. He cared about what God had done in previous generations. He cared more about these things than his own well-being. Caleb said, “I will not rest until I take that city.” What God is looking for is a remnant of Believers with the heart of Caleb. They will care more about the cause of Christ and the destiny of their cities and nation than their own reputations, their own churches, and their own ministries. God wants someone that will say, “I will take this city!” God will liberate it when they pray. 

Do not wait for a majority of Believers to engage with you. You don’t need the majority of the Church to liberate your city from the strongholds keeping it in bondage. The majority of the Church will benefit. They are going to get to eat of the fruit of the land. They are going to take part in the harvest. It will benefit whole regions, but it will not be a majority that takes out the giants. God doesn’t need a majority.   

“Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms. Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow. Others you must build up and plant.” (Jeremiah 1:10; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Say, “We are a Caleb company! We are conquerors, who are willing and more than able to take the land!”
  • Declare, “This is the year to tear down, dismantle and pull down every stronghold of the enemy in our land.”
  • Tell the Lord, “We want this city (name your city). We will partner with those you show us, but we don’t need a large company. We don’t need all the pastors in unity. We just need faith-filled Believers.”
  • Decide to seek embrace the Word of the Lord more seriously for the rest of this year. Read the Bible. Pray in passages of scripture. Ask the Lord for scriptures from the Word of God to use as a sword to bring the strongholds down!
  • Adore the Lamb. Take communion, if you have elements available.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we stand before You now. We say, “We are a Caleb company. We are willing to take the land. We are well able to take the land. We are more than conquerers. We overwhelmingly conquer.” We echo Your words, “This is a year to tear down, to dismantle, to pull down.” We are going to exalt who You are. We are going to take back the city and make it a place of covenantal friendship. We are going to seek the Word of the Lord. We are going to seek the fire of God. We are going to see miracles come to this region. We are going to see revival come to this nation, in Jesus’ name, amen. We agree that there are enough of us. There are more than enough. There are more than enough to take out the strongholds that are in this area. We rise up in faith. We won’t look at the numbers. We won’t consider how long the strongholds have existed. We’re not going to look at how deeply they are entrenched. We are going to look at You. We are going to look at the blood of the Lamb. We are going to look at Your Name, Jesus. 

Today’s decree:

Filled with faith and with our eyes fixed on Jesus, we will return our cities to places of covenantal friendship with God.

Caleb and the Giants

There is a very significant city in Israel, named Hebron. It is one of the most important cities in the promised land. Many of the Patriarchs in Israeli history are buried there. Abraham and Sarah are buried there. The word, “Hebron” means “covenantal friendship”. Between the time of Abraham and Joshua, the greatest giant in all the land had captured Hebron. He wanted Hebron, because it was the highest city in all the land. So, symbolically, it represented the highest place of authority. He conquered the city and renamed it after himself—Kiriath Arbah, which means “the city of Arbah”. 

Listen carefully. When you give place to the underworld, they can come to the upper world. They will ascend to the high place of authority in that place. 

Caleb went into the land as one of the 12 spies that Joshua sent into the Promised Land. He was filled with righteous indignation. He looked up to the place that used to be Hebron, but which was now ruled by the greatest giant. That was the place that once represented covenant friendship with God. He looked at it and said, “I want that city right there. I want to take that land and I’m willing to take down the biggest giant!” Caleb did capture that city, and defeated Arbah and his three sons. 

“Now give me this hill country that the Lord promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, with the Lord helping me, I will drive them out just as he said.” (Joshua 14:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare, “Lord, give me (name your city, school, neighborhood, or other giant-controlled place.)”
  • Say, “I am aware that there are giants entrenched in the land, but with You helping me, I will drive them out, just as You show me how to.”
  • Bring any sense of fear, inadequacy, or insecurity to Him, so He can show you who you are, and how He will fight for you and through you to defeat the giants in your territory. 
  • Decree, “I want this city right here. I want to take this land and I’m willing to take down the biggest giant, so this place can glorify the Lord Jesus!” 

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, Caleb knew the history of the place He was standing in front of. He knew how the enemy had hated it being a place that honored You, so giants moved in. The good news is that Caleb decided it really was ground that belonged to the Lord and he would take it back! Give me my (place where giants are that you are claiming. This can be a city, school, neighborhood or other place.) I see the giants there and I see the effect they are having on this place. They have turned it from a place that could glorify God into an unholy, even destructive place. Give me the faith of Caleb, so I can remove the giants from the land. Show me who I am and show me how You see me, so any insecurity or fear will fall away. Show me what You wanted for this place. Show me what You intend for this place. What is Your dream or vision? I want to see this place glorify You, Jesus. Let’s go get those giants out of there! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We are a Caleb company and we will remove the giants and take back the nation for the Glory of God!

Taking Out the Giants

Chuck and I agree that the cities with the strongest strongholds in America are Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit. We believe Chicago is number 1. That is not a negative reflection on Believers in these cities or that the Church there has failed. It means that the enemy sees what God is planning to do in these places and is working hard to prevent it. He has, therefore, set up strongholds there. There has to be a reason, for example, that Chicago has become the greatest stronghold of death in the nation. 

God has recently taken me back to the story of Caleb and his victory over the giants in Canaan. Have you ever heard of Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai? How about Arbah? The Old Testament tells us that Arbah was the greatest of all the giants. He was the father of the race of the giants. He had three sons: Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, who were also giants. We don’t know who these three were other than that. They were not that big of a deal to God. Even though they were giants that ruled the land, they were not that powerful. Caleb had no problem taking out those giants. 

The size of the giants are not the issue. How long the giants have ruled is not the issue. The only issue is, “Will the people of God obey Him and respond in faith to what God says?” When we do, it is not that hard to take out giants. God can liberate our cities! The giants are no match for HIm!  

“They advanced against the Canaanites living in Hebron (formerly called Kiriath Arba) and defeated Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai.” (Judges 1:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Joshua 14:6-15 where Caleb asks Joshua to give him the mountain where Kiriath-Arbah was, so he can drive the giants out of the land God was giving Israel. Let your faith rise up.
  • Caleb was easily successful, because he “wholly followed the Lord.” Recommit yourself to be fully obedient to the Lord.
  • Choose one of these cities, look up their most current needs, and intercede for them, calling forth the opposite of what you see: Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit. Call forth Life in place of death, for example.
  • Ask God to expose the giants in these key stronghold cities.
  • Declare that the giants rooted there, which are affecting the entire nation, will be uprooted and replaced with God’s Presence and plans.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, as I read about Caleb’s request and his faith to overcome the giants in the land, let my faith arise. Let me believe what Dutch is saying. I can route the giants in my territory, whether that’s my neighborhood, my city or my nation. I must simply follow You completely. I love You, Lord. I am Yours and You are mine. Let me hear Your voice and follow your instructions. Let faith rise up in me and overcome every giant. This is not impossible for You. You simply want a clean and willing vessel to use. Clean me up. Use me. Show me how to pray over Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and/or Detroit. The prophets say spiritual strongmen are ruling from these places. I certainly see evidence of that! Expose the giants in these places. Set our nation free! I believe Your Church can pray and remove them, if we are careful to humbly pray Your way. We declare that the giants rooted in these cities will be uprooted and replaced with Your plans and with Your Presence. How we will worship You! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Through our obedience to the Lord’s plans, we will take out the giants in our land!

Contending From and Not For

“A couple of years ago, as we were praying in the State Capital Building in Austin, Texas, the Lord released a powerful revelation to us.  He declared that we were no longer contending for this place. We were now, in Him, contending from the capital.  This was a major shift, as the Lord was anointing us for authoritative and declaratory prayers that would change the atmosphere of our capital, our capital city, our state and our nation.

“During a phone conversation with two of our state intercessory leaders, the Lord revealed another aspect. First, as we continue to move in this new position of contending from a place rather than contending for, we will see the force of evil intensify. This had been prophesied at our annual prayer network retreat. Evil will rise up to contend with us. This evil was demonstrated through the terrorist act of death through the El Paso shooting.

“Second, there is a clear, distinguishable line that is being drawn between what is right and wrong, just and unjust, and between life and death. The Lord kept speaking to us that we can’t have a spirit of compromise or of getting along for the sake of getting along. We can’t compromise with darkness, the antichrist spirit, Jezebel, Baal, or any other lifeless structure. 

“God’s government must and will, through us, penetrate and influence natural government. Remember, whether it’s Washington, D.C. or Austin, what is decided there is not the root, but the fruit. We must call forth the righteousness and justice that are seeded into the foundation of God’s throne.” (Tom Schlueter)*

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer*:

  •  Step into God’s presence and seek His face and heart.
  • You are seated with Him. Listen to what He is decreeing over your city, state and nation.
  • Fully receive your commission and anointing to now contend from Your position in Him.
  • Disarm and dismantle the structures that are rising up in contention against the work of God.
  • Decree that darkness, death, confusion, and that which is unjust will be stopped.
  • Recognize that failure is not an option.
  • As you dismantle the darkness, speak forth blessing, life, righteousness, hope, justice and grace in its place.

A prayer you can pray*:

Lord, the foundations of our states and nation are rooted into the foundation stones of Your throne. They are rooted in righteousness and justice.  I declare that we are built on the covenant promises of God. I declare Your Lordship over my city, my state, and my nation. I decree that Your life and light will penetrate every dark structure and expose every plot and scheme that is attempting to rise up in contention against the manifestations of Your kingdom and will. I recommit my life to You, Lord, and I will not fall prey to compromise.  I will not get along to get along. I will not negotiate with darkness, the antichrist spirit, Jezebel, Baal, or any other lifeless structure. I call forth the righteousness and justice that are seeded into the foundation of God’s throne. Let those seeds bear the true fruit of Your kingdom. Lord Jesus, thank You for this new mantle of authority.  Thank You that You have shifted me from “contending for” to “contending from.” I praise You and You alone. I open my ears to hear Your Word. And now let Your word go forth, as I decree it. Amen.

Today’s decree*:

I decree that Your life and light, Lord, will penetrate every dark structure and expose every plot and scheme that is attempting to rise up in contention against the manifestations of Your kingdom and will.

  Pray Today for Heartbeat Bills to Pass!

From Janet Porter, author of the original Ohio Heartbeat Bill:

“Just a quick note of update…The effort to keep hearts beating is going strong! Pastor Corey Shankleton, who helped us pass the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, has moved to Michigan and is leading their effort. I traveled with him throughout Michigan speaking to churches, pro-life groups, and houses of prayer (video here). God is moving! People were coming forward crying, saying ‘I have prayed for this day to come.’ The opportunity to end abortion for which we have prayed is HERE.  

“I’ll be testifying for the Tennessee Heartbeat Bill today. If both Michigan and Tennessee pass Heartbeat Laws, then EVERY state in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will have done so—sending a very strong message to the Supreme Court to take up and review our law and reexamine Roe v Wade.” (Janet Porter)    

“See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.” (Deuteronomy 30:15-16; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Janet Porter started this journey nine years ago. Bless her for standing strong and tirelessly in this long battle.
  • The Heartbeat Bill states that abortion cannot occur when there is a detectable heartbeat. While we know that life begins at conception, this is a huge step forward that will stop 95% of abortions. “When the heartbeat is detected, the baby is protected.” Thank the Lord and pray that many states will adopt this pro-life legislation.
  • The Heartbeat Bill requires that doctors must test for a fetal heartbeat. Intercede for every Heartbeat Bill coming up. Begin with Tennessee and Michigan.
  • If there is a heartbeat, the woman must be informed. Declare that Planned Parenthood and similar organizations will not be able to withhold information any longer about a woman’s unborn child.
  • It requires protection of babies. Abortion cannot occur or a felony will be committed. Praise God for the ending of abortion in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we bless Janet Porter for her bold stand and tireless journey to see Heartbeat Bills passed in as many states as possible. Bless Ohio for taking the lead. We ask You to grace Janet and those working with her to continue to take this message from state to state, until as many as possible will pass this simple legislation. Even the unsaved are agreeing with the measurement that a baby should live if its heartbeat is detected. It crosses even political lines. When a heartbeat is detected, a baby is protected! Science says a heartbeat is the presence of life, so let the legislation pass! Let state after state after state pass this legislation. We especially pray for Tennessee, who is considering it this week, and Michigan, considering it soon. We say that women will no longer have information about their baby’s life withheld from them any longer! Let the truth be known! God, we praise You for the ending of abortion in America! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Heartbeat Bill will continue to be passed in state after state, right now in Tennessee and Michigan!

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!

Today’s decree:

It’s Chicago’s time! This season is the end of the destruction by the spirits that have ruled there!

Realigning Chicago, the Place Where the Spirit of Violence is Rooted

“First of all, I love Chicago. Chicago has a lot of conflict stirring over it. There is a lot of redemptive purpose there for the future. Chicago is the key to the Midwest USA. There are spokes coming into Chicago. The Spirit of God is creating new highways into the hub. There is a moment of alignment coming. It is a moment when heaven and earth align and heaven begins to empower the Church. When the empowerment comes, what’s been in ashes and rubble begins to re-form. Everything was once in chaos, but God spoke into the chaos and re-formed it. Chicago has been in ashes and chaos, but God is realigning things.

“This last decade for the Church has been about establishing a new apostolic authority. A new apostolic mantle has been forming. Psalm 102 says, ‘The heavens even change and shed themselves like an old mantle.’ Understand, God is sovereign and there are times where He changes the heavens over an area. God is right now changing the heavens over Chicago. He’s not just trying to transform the city of Chicago. The heavens are transforming over Chicago. Now, we can pull the transformation into the earth realm. God has a determined time for transformation. The next thing that happens is that God builds a new foundation. That new foundation will have God’s order in it. So, what we couldn’t create or accomplish in the last season, we can build in this season. We are not building the Church in this season. We’re unlocking the Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not built. It is within us. We carry it, and expand it when we release it. When the foundation’s reset, we will be able to build the Church again.” (Chuck Pierce) 

“When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” (Matthew 16:2-3; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • “See” what God is doing in Chicago. Be not dismayed. Separate out what you see in the natural and what the prophets say is occuring. The enemy is angry, but he must leave.
  • Praise God for the apostolic work and alignment that has been taking place as the apostolic authority in Chicago has moved forward there.
  • Call for the ashes and rubble, violence and chaos in Chicago to settle into how God is re-forming that territory.
  • From a place of faith, worship the Lord over the foundation being reset in Chicago that will impact the entire nation. 
  • If you live in the radius around Chicago along one of the “spokes”, consider seeking the Lord about going in there, and aligning with the apostolic work there.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, open our eyes to see what You have been doing. We must trust Your process. When we don’t know Your ways fully, we see one thing and assume things do not line up with what You are doing. You are at work. You have been causing Your Church to align apostolically with Your plans and purposes. You have sent in apostolically-aligned troops from across the nation and Midwest. You have sent them in, because this reformation of Chicago will affect the whole nation. We praise You for the work of Your hands! We call for the results to manifest. Let the ashes and rubble and violence and chaos in Chicago settle down now. Let it settle right into God’s plans and purposes. Let it become fertilizer for the great harvest that is coming from the Midwest USA. We worship You over all of this, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Chicago will be a sign and a wonder in the nation, as God resets it for Kingdom expansion!
