Trump’s Jerusalem Move Is Unlocking Two Nations

Ken Malone is one of my board members and an Apostle to Florida and this nation. He wrote down key prophetic points he believes will be results of President Trump’s formal acknowledgement of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. I wanted to break our regular pattern and share them with you in full:

“On December 6, 2017, in an unprecedented move unlike any other President, Trump made a huge impact in the world recognizing Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel. This decision will have major ramifications to America and Israel.

These are some of the things the Lord showed me about this decision from Wednesday, December 6, 2017:

  1. Great Prosperity for both nations. The wealth and economy will increase, jobs will abound, and a grace for personal prosperity will be upon us. Take advantage of this Kairos season.
  2. Great Holy Spirit Awakening Revival will increase. Get ready for a huge harvest of souls. America will see a great awakening. Israel will see a great increase in souls turning to Jesus Christ. There will be moves of God in schools, businesses, civil government, media, arts and entertainment. Watch for deep healing to take place in families.
  3. Moves of God will abound. A repeat of Joel 2 and Acts 2 will become a prophetic promise fulfilled. Prophetic dreams, words, and visions will begin to once again lead the church into her victorious destiny.
  4. There is a powerful increase coming to the apostolic and prophetic gifts. Watch as apostles begin moving in great signs and wonders that will glorify and magnify Jesus as Lord both in heaven and earth.  In 2015 the Lord showed me that at the end of the Obama administration the apostles will come to the platform. The timing of this is being demonstrated now by this bold move of President Trump. Trump carries an apostolic mantle. Apostles, it’s time to move in great grace and great power as they did in Acts 4:33.  Be bold and exercise your authority.
  5. Momentum is at a new high for the body of Christ. You can now do things that were not possible a year ago. Engage in your God-strategy to move forward into your God-destiny.
  6. There is now great momentum in intercession. A great victory was won on December 6, 2017, because of your prayers. This is the day of the intercessor. Intercessors, you are being called up again into a higher level of intercession. Pastors, begin giving your intercessors a greater place of authority in your church. You need them to go to the next level—you won’t get to the next level without them. Remember, Jesus was and is an intercessor.
  7. Protection for our America will come back upon the land. For years, we have lost some of our protection. This will begin to return.
  8. Anti-Christian and Anti-Semitism will increase! A great increase of persecution of both Christians and Jews will be seen. This will be at a level we have not seen before. Do not fear the works of the enemy—our God will fight for us!
  9. Elijah, Elisha, and Jehu clashes with the demons of Baal and Jezebel will increase. Do not fear. Great boldness and strength is coming on the church to contend and defeat these principalities.
  10. The media will increase in evil. God will continue to expose the media and the spirit behind it will become weaker as the Lord deals with this part of our society.”1

“With great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God poured rich blessings on them all.” (Acts 4:33; GNT)

  • Decree each of the points above. Intercede them into being!

America’s Destiny Has Never Changed

In 1607, Robert Hunt planted a cross in the sand at Cape Henry and prophesied that the Gospel would go forth, not only across this nation, but to all the nations of the earth from these shores. You probably weren’t taught that in your history class. But, our nation was born under that prophetic decree. That is the destiny of America—to be a beachhead for the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world. We are to be a city on a hill, a light to the nations. That destiny has never changed! Many have tried to abort it. It has never changed!

“My word, which comes from my mouth, is like the rain and snow. It will not come back to me without results. It will accomplish whatever I want and achieve whatever I send it to do.” (Isaiah 55:11; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that God’s purpose for America will be fulfilled as stated above.
  • Ask God to restore to His people the truth of why He established America.
  • Declare that we will fulfill His heart’s destiny for this nation, even though some have tried to hide it, even remove the reality of it.
  • Many have taken the Gospel from these shores to many nations of the earth. Decree that there is a new fresh wave of the Gospel going to the nations from the United States in this generation.
  • Choose a country and passionately pray that God sends the Gospel from here to there.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, my heart is crying out to see Your dream for America fulfilled in my generation. May the Gospel be spread all across this land and may we take it to every nation on earth from our shores. Though many have tried to hide Your involvement in establishing this nation, we say it will be hidden no longer. Every single thin You planned for us will come to pass. The enemy may have delayed it and tried to bury it, but he cannot stop it! You said Your Word will achieve what You set it forth to accomplish. I agree! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s determined purpose will be fulfilled for America!

Grateful Response from Israel

Jerusalem has “been the capital of Israel for nearly 70 years. Jerusalem has been the focus of our hopes, our dreams, our prayers for three millennia. Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years. It was here that our temples stood, our kings ruled, our prophets preached. We’re profoundly grateful for the President for his courageous and just decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to prepare for the opening of the US embassy here. I share President Trump’s commitment to advancing peace between Israel and all of our neighbors, including the Palestinians. And we will continue to work with the President and his team to make that dream of peace come true. I call on all countries that seek peace to join the United States in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to move their embassies here. I also want to make clear: there will be no change whatsoever to the status quo at the holy sites. This has been our goal from Israel’s first day. Israel will always ensure freedom of worship for Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. President Trump, thank you for today’s historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jewish people and the Jewish State will be forever grateful.” (Benjamin Netanyahu)1

“This is what the LORD says: ‘I will return to Zion and I will live in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem will be called, “The City of Truth” and the mountain of the LORD of the Heavenly Armies will be called, “The Holy Mountain”.’” (Zechariah 8:3; ISV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Rejoice with Israel, for it is a day of rejoicing.
  • Call Jerusalem “The City of Truth!” Intercede for those living in Jerusalem that do not understand what is happening. Pray that they will “hear” the voice of the Prime Minister when he says that Israel will ensure freedom of religion and that Middle-east peace is still the goal.
  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • Ask the Lord to increase the friendship between the United States and Israel and to reverse the effect of any past leadership decisions that had the opposite effect.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I continue to rejoice over President Trump’s decision to formally acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move our US Embassy there! I call Jerusalem “The City of Truth!” I say that truth shall rule and reign there. I say that those who live in Israel, and especially in Jerusalem, will believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu means what he says! Religious freedom shall be honored in Israel. Peace will be the standard and the goal there. Lord, grant peace to that magnificent city, which You established out of Your love for Your people. Deepen the friendship between the United States and Israel for Your name’s sake. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the friendship between the United States and Israel will deepen as we move into Jerusalem.

The US Embassy is Going to Jerusalem

“In 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city — and so importantly — is Israel’s capital. This act passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago. Yet, for over 20 years, every previous American president has exercised the law’s waiver, refusing to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem or to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city…. Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel…. That is why, consistent with the Jerusalem Embassy Act, I am also directing the State Department to begin preparation to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This will immediately begin the process of hiring architects, engineers, and planners, so that a new embassy, when completed, will be a magnificent tribute to peace…. In the meantime, I call on all parties to maintain the status quo at Jerusalem’s holy sites, including the Temple Mount, also known as Haram al-Sharif. Above all, our greatest hope is for peace, the universal yearning in every human soul. With today’s action, I reaffirm my administration’s longstanding commitment to a future of peace and security for the region.” President Donald J. Trump1

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch.” (Isaiah 6:1; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • Thank the Lord for President Trump’s boldness in acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, adding the movement of our Embassy to that city.
  • Pray for protection over President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu, as some will be very upset. There was an immediate call in Congress for an impeachment of the President. It overwhelmingly failed, but is indicative of the depth of feeling over this issue.
  • Pray for the salvation of the Jews, the Gentiles, and the Muslims living in Jerusalem. May many meet Jesus there.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we ask in accordance with Your Word for peace to reign in Jerusalem – Your peace. Post Your holy angels there and be in the midst of this city that You love. We thank you for our President making such a bold move. We know it pleases you. Protect him and protect Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Keep them safe from those that will not understand the spiritual importance of this move and, instead, will be fearful and angry. We ask for an outpouring of salvation upon all flesh in the streets of this great city, Jesus! Save Muslim, Jew and Gentile. May they lay aside their differences at the cross and embrace Jesus, the one true God. Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the blessing of the Lord is coming to America, as our President has honored his promise to bless Jerusalem by moving our embassy there.

California is on Fire Again

Earlier this year, California was on fire from the north to the south. Once again fires have sprung up with four major blazes in Southern California, near very heavily populated areas, and more in San Diego County, further south. On the coast near Ventura, heading east to Santa Paula, near Sylmar, in the San Fernando valley area, and just north of Los Angeles (Bel Air) are where the worst fires are. They are being propelled by very strong Santa Ana winds. They are now the deadliest fires in California history. Videos of people making their escape from the fast-moving flames are terrifying. Firefighters and sheriffs, going house to house to make sure mandatory evacuations are followed, are exhausted.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Weep with those who mourn. Intercede with compassion for the hundreds that have lost everything.
  • At least 31 people have lost their lives. Their families are in need of God’s love and comfort. Pray that they will know they can run to the Father that loves them and truly cares.
  • Cry out for the wind to stop and for winter rains to begin.
  • Intercede for the firefighters and other emergency responders who are putting their lives in danger for the sake of the general public. Ask God to grant them grace and safety. Pray that homeowners will heed their warnings to evacuate, so the officers’ lives are not endangered trying save them.
  • Look for practical ways to give to and serve those in the midst of the tragedy.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I will weep with those who are weeping. As I watch videos and read news reports and see pictures and social media posts, my heart is breaking. It is hard to imagine the fear and devastation and pain of loss. This is so significant. May those in the midst of it that know You turn to You. May those who are not yet Yours turn to You. May You be the place they go for comfort in the storm – that very present help in time of trouble. We command the winds to stop. We call for rain! Grant the firefighters and emergency responders grace and strength to fight the blaze and help residents evacuate. God, let people heed the warnings to keep them safe! Show me how I can help minister to the victims, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will save Californians as they turn toward His love!

Praying for Justice Kennedy

Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Colorado case in which a baker, Jack Phillips, turned down a request to provide a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. Mr. Phillips is a Christian who also chooses not to bake Halloween cakes and cakes for other occasions he does not religiously agree with. The refusal prompted the filing of a discrimination suit against Phillips by David Mullins and Charlie Craig. The justices appeared divided in their statements right along politically ideological lines. The swing vote in the middle appears to be Justice Kennedy. He questioned both the possibility of discrimination against homosexuals and Colorado state laws that could be biased against religion.1

“Mankind will say, ‘Surely there is a reward for the righteous; surely there is a God who judges on earth.’” (Psalm 58:11; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God to grant Jack Phillips and his attorneys grace and strength to stand in confidence before the throne of grace. Pray Psalm 58:11 over Jack Phillips, who is standing up for his convictions as a Believer in Jesus.
  • Pray that the Supreme Court Justices will rule according to the U.S. Constitution, instead of along political lines.
  • Fervently intercede for Justice Kennedy, especially, as he deliberates his decision. Pray that God will grant him wisdom to know the right thing to do.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I pray for Jack Phillips. He is a Christian who has decided that he would rather not participate in lifestyle decisions that he believes the Bible opposes. Should the Justices rule against him, this case may significantly limit religious freedom going forward. Speak to the Justices, especially Justice Kennedy, and grant them wisdom to filter their opinions through our Constitution and not their own opinions. Our Court was to be non-political, but its decisions often fall along those lines. Intervene, Judge of the whole earth and Judge over our nation. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will intervene in the Phillips case and grant His justice and our freedom of religion.

Mercy Releases Miracles

The Bible tells us that even in His wrath, God remembers mercy. Mercy is not sympathy. Mercy is covenantal love. It’s translated, “mercy”, “lovingkindness”. It’s new every morning. It’s what the blind man shouted, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus replied, “You can have mercy. You can have more than mercy. You can have a miracle, because when My mercy starts to flow, miracles start to flow.” It is the response of the One that keeps covenant and extends mercy to a thousand generations, even when you mess up, even when you sin, even when you rebel. Even when you turn away from Him, as Israel did, the God of Mercy will find a way to bring you back. The strategy of the Lord for this season is to go to the throne of Grace, where we obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. We go there and say, “Thank you, Lord, for being merciful and for not giving us what we deserve, but mercy.”

“LORD, I have heard the report of what you did; I am awed, LORD, by what you accomplished. In our time repeat those deeds; in our time reveal them again. But when you cause turmoil, remember to show us mercy!” (Habakkuk 3:2; NET Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for His mercy, lovingkindness, covenant love, and miracles. Pray carefully over each one of those words. Let the revelation of each sink in deep. Receive the miracles flowing from His mercy, lovingkindness, and covenant love toward you.
  • Pray the same for this nation. Say, “In Your wrath, remember mercy!”
  • Some have called President Trump “God’s Chaos Candidate.” Pray for the President today.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for Your mercy (stop and think about that a minute.) Thank you for Your lovingkindness (stop and think about that.) Thank you for Your covenant love toward me (let that sink in.) I receive the miracles You have planned for me that flow out of Your mercy, lovingkindness and covenant love for me. Do the same for America. We need (mention the miracles you know this nation needs.) I pray that You would grant this mercy to President Trump, as well. His very nature stirs things up, but he is honoring You publicly in many ways. Grant him these things, as well, Lord, and work miracles for him, his family, and this nation that he loves. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God will show our nation mercy in the midst of our current chaotic environment. We will see miracles!

Remember the Season We Are In

I used to go to Washington, D.C., on a regular basis. Then one day, about seven years ago, God said to stop going for a while. It was like He was saying, “Just leave it alone for a while.” But one day, my wife charged into my office and said, “You have to go back to D.C. It’s time.” So, I rerouted some trips I had already planned in order that they would go through D.C. A couple of days before I was going, I was at a conference with Chuck Pierce, and he didn’t know I was going. He took out a stake and said, “The Lord told me to bring this stake and give it to you. The Lord says, ‘Go to Washington, D.C., this week and re-stake claim to America.’” So, we went with great confidence and faith knowing this was an assignment from God. We went, and we felt led to pray at the White House. It was as if God was standing there telling us what to decree. Afterward, a man walked up to us and, as he passed, he said 6 times, “Mercy.” Then, he disappeared into the crowd. I believe he was an angel, and the Lord wanted us to know that He heard our prayers and that He wanted to give this nation mercy, not judgement.

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations3:22-23; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Acknowledge that God speaks to the prophets.
  • Acknowledge that He directs our path and even the words we pray, if we will listen.
  • Acknowledge that this is a season of God’s extending mercy to America, even as He stated prophetically to Chuck and me.
  • Pray Lamentations 3:22-23 over our nation every day for a while, until it really sinks in. Without this revelation, we may not understand what is taking place.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I acknowledge that You speak to Your prophets. In fact, Your Word says You don’t do anything unless You tell them first. I acknowledge that You give us direction in supernatural ways and that You give us words to pray, to declare, and to decree. Thank you for Your mercy, Lord. Thank you that your mercies are new every morning, not just over our personal lives, but over our nation, as well. Where would we be without You? Put this deep in my spirit, so I do not grow fearful and think You are judging us nationally. I must continue to stand for mercy and see through Your eyes of mercy in this season. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that the United States is in a season of Mercy!

Praying for Hawaii

“This morning we couldn’t help but pray as we leaned over our 33rd floor balcony looking over the city of Honolulu. I felt somewhat like Jesus weeping over Jerusalem, yet for a different reason. ‘God save Hawaii and neuter totally North Korea’s ability to cause destruction in any nation or city.’ We must awaken. God admonished Deborah to awake, to see what was happening both in the physical and spiritual realm in Israel. (Judges 4-5) Then, he invited her to do something about it. America must wake up. Our prayers must change from worshipping lullabies to a war cry. Israel understands this even today! On December 1st, the first nuclear attack drill was held here in Hawaii. They sounded the sirens for 55 seconds and then there were a series of short siren blasts, and then the air raid sirens began for another minute. It seemed surreal! Being here has elevated even more my awareness, as well as concern, for South Korea, Hawaii etc. Kim Jong Un said that Hawaii will be his target. But God! People here are concerned and reasonably so. God is concerned and has a plan in place that we must pray through and discover. The Psalmist said that He, God, will outwit the enemy!”

“The enemy shall not outwit him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague those who hate him.” (Psalm 89:22-23; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Hawaii is preparing its citizens for what it hopes will never happen – to be North Korea’s target. Imagine if you lived there. Many have visited there. Get out your pictures or look some up online and pray over this beautiful state and all of its citizens.
  • Ask God to grant a supernatural covering over this state. Ask for a release of angelic hosts to protect it.
  • Pray that many would turn to Jesus in this time of fear and threat, so they may find peace and comfort in Him.
  • Cancel and nullify the threats of Kim Jong Un against Hawaii.
  • Declare Psalm 89 and Psalm 91 over Hawaii.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I will immerse myself in research on the state of Hawaii today. You love this land and its people and You added it to the United States of America. I choose to love it, as I love my own state. I ask You to supernaturally protect Hawaii. Send angelic hosts to this place and let them watch over it and guard it upon Your sovereign orders. Where people are fearful, use Your people to introduce them to Jesus, the one who can save them and deliver them from all fear. I cancel every threat of Kim Jong Un. Who does he think he is coming against this nation? We choose You, Lord. We lift up the name of Jesus! We worship You, the One, true God. Save us and help us as we gather our faith and pray Psalms 89 and 91. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God shall outwit the enemy’s plans against the state of Hawaii!

Maintaining Earthly Stability

God is saying that this is a season to pray diligently for the overthrow of the evil regime in North Korea. I believe we have moved into a season in God’s timing that that could happen. I believe God wants to save the North Korean people. I believe He wants to reunify the north and the south. Additionally, I believe He wants enough stability in the earth that He is able to bring forth the harvest He has intended for this season in the earth. He is not going to let a man like this North Korean leader stop Him.

“You have multiplied the nation; you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as they are glad when they divide the spoil.” (Isaiah 9:3; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that North Korea is not able to fire off nuclear weapons.
  • Intercede diligently for the leader to be removed and that “Daniel” and “Joseph” leaders God has raised up will take his place quickly.
  • Pray for President Trump and those advising him. Pray they would not make any unwise decisions that could negatively affect our nation and many other nations of the world. Ask God to reveal His wise Counsel to them.
  • Pray always and continually for the harvest.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask you to thwart any and all of North Korea’s efforts to successfully launch a nuclear weapon. We do not want the United States, S. Korea, Japan, China, or any other nation harmed by their plans and threats. We consider them the plans of the enemy. Remove their highest leadership, even as You removed Mugabe in Zimbabwe. Get the Daniels and Josephs, which You have prepared, ready to take their places to lead North Korea. Keep our President and military leaders from making any costly decisions. Influence them, Lord. Protect and defend the harvest fields of the Earth for the sake of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is going to win in the conflict with North Korea! The harvest is secure!
