Seeing Current Events From God’s Heavenly Perspective

“The Lord spoke some things to me right around the National Day of Prayer in 2019. He spoke to me about 2019 and into 2020 and beyond. He gave me a vision that helped me see from heaven’s perspective and from a place of discernment. We need to see what is the Lord doing, what is the enemy doing, and what is our role. In this vision, I saw the Lord at various locations in the U.S. I saw Him at the place of original covenant, along the East coast, down into Texas, up into the Heartland, over into California, and then up into the Pacific Northwest and back across to Washington, D.C. 

“He said, ‘During a 5-year period of time, there will be historic movements that no one has expected to see. There will be historic exposures that no one has seen – historic exposures of corruption.’ When I say, ‘historic corruption’, I don’t just mean ‘people who are doing corrupt things’. That is going to happen. But, I am talking about evil schemes of the enemy. These are things deeply rooted in our nation that still need healing. Wherever the Holy Spirit went, it caused a shaking. It caused chaos and confusion. I even saw fires in the midst of this vision. 

“I saw that in the midst of this, the gavel of justice would come down. Everything the enemy meant for harm – the corrupt structures, prejudice, racism, and other deep-rooted things – He will turn it to fulfill His Divine purposes. This isn’t just for the United States. This is about nations. He said, ‘Do not be surprised when you see more revealed, more shaking, more chaos, and more confusion. I am exposing it all from My perspective to deal with it and to bring cleansing and purity. I am bringing healing and wholeness in these areas. I have placed you in a five-year period of grace and awakening.’

“When we think ‘grace’, we think things are going to be peaceful and joyful in the midst of it. In reality, grace is flowing, because God is not causing this. These things are happening as evil is unleashed, but His Glory is being revealed as in Isaiah 60, ‘Arise, shine, for your light has come and the Glory of the Lord has risen on you.’ That Glory is increasing, therefore that darkness is being exposed. If we keep looking at that passage of scripture, we see that His Glory continues to increase. Deep darkness covers the earth and the people, but the Glory shall be seen on His people. Nations and kings will come to the brightness of His Glory.” (Rebecca Greenwood)

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Isaiah 60:1-3; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We must have a strategy for prayer and action from God’s perspective. Ask God to help you see strategically.  
  • The Vision related above was given for the Body of Christ, highlighting specific places in the nation, so that we have understanding on how to pray. Think about your area. How is it being impacted by the enemy and by the Lord? How are you or other leaders showing you to pray right now over your area? How are you praying over the nation?
  • We are in a global reset to reap His harvest. Intercede against the effects of any recoiling of the enemy to strike again in different ways. Pray this will not stop the movement of the Church to get the harvest in, but rather that things boomerang back against the originating principalities.
  • Call for the Glory of the Lord to fill the whole earth!
  • Declare, “Full exposure! Full justice! Full dethroning of what these principalities have intended.” 

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank You for showing the prophets what is happening from Your heavenly perspective. This is a good reminder and example for me, prompting me to seek You for Your perspective. There is no way to figure all of this out in the natural. It must be spiritually discerned. A plan for spiritual warfare must come from Your leading and not from my own earthly processing. Show me the area I live in. Let me see what You intend and how the enemy has come in to cause chaos and distraction. Show me how the enemy’s attacks are causing exposures. What is being exposed? What actions and intercession  must follow to minister to the harvest that the chaos reveals? 

Show me how to pray for America. Show me how to intercede for the nations of the earth. You are revealing the sons of God. You are revealing the activities of the enemy, which cause Your Glory to shine in the earth, so that the darkness can no longer run and hide. I ask You for maximum Glory and maximum grace! Full exposure! Full justice! Full dethroning of what these principalities have intended. Let the fullness of the Glory of God fill the earth in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We say God’s Glory and His justice are coming down , so we can reap the greatest global harvest the world has ever seen!

Attempting to Unite a Divided Nation

On Tuesday night, 2/4/20, one week ago, President Trump gave the annual State of the Union Address. He reported on many items he feels are positive about the United States of America this year. He noted economic, technological, and societal changes that show a nation growing stronger and more beneficial to all of its citizens. Over the next few days, we want to highlight just a few of those things for the purposes of prayer and to give God the glory, not man, for these advancements. We believe they are answers to the multitudes of prayers that have been prayed for America over the last 20-30 years. God is using this administration, but He is behind it all.

President Trump began his Address in the U. S. House of Representatives’ chamber, before two very divided political parties. The Democratic majority in the Congress voted to impeach him in December. The Republican-led Senate was going to vote the next morning to acquit him of those charges. Before them, he made this statement: 

“The agenda I will lay out this evening is not a Republican agenda or a Democrat agenda. It’s the agenda of the American people. Many of us have campaigned on the same core promises: to defend American jobs and demand fair trade for American workers; to rebuild and revitalize our nation’s infrastructure; to reduce the price of healthcare and prescription drugs; to create an immigration system that is safe, lawful, modern, and secure; and to pursue a foreign policy that puts America’s interests first.

“There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage, together, to seize it. Victory is not winning for our party. Victory is winning for our country. We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before. But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. Together, we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make.

“We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness.”

“So then, let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” (Romans 14:19; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Intercede before the throne of Grace between what is and ought to be regarding the political division in this nation. Our legislators must put aside partisanship and choose to work together for the good of the citizens of the nation.
  • Decree, “So then, let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”
  • Agree with our president and declare, “There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage, together, to seize it. Victory is not winning for our party. Victory is winning for our country. We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before. But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. Together, we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. The decision is ours to make.”
  • Give all the glory to God for the great things He is doing for our nation, using very human people. Say, “To God be the Glory, great things He has done!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, my heart is burning, exploding, with gratitude as I watch You turn this great nation toward Your will. It makes me sad that there are those so offended at political outcomes that they are not able to see You at work right in front of their faces. They are so intent on wiping out the will of the people, and removing President Trump, that they can’t see or acknowledge the good things that are happening. How grievous this is. Please open their blind eyes. Please reveal to them their offended hearts, especially if they say they know You. If they go to Your Word at all, lead them to those passages that reveal truth, and don’t let them think it’s for the other party! Chip away at the divide between us one person at a time. Your Word has the plan for life and blessing, prosperity and salvation. Take them there. Show them and lead them all to say, “Let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”

There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only our leaders have the courage, together, to seize it. Victory is not winning for any political party. Victory is winning for our country. We pray for them, because they can work together to make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before. But they must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. Help them work together, Jesus. Together, they can break decades of political stalemate. Grace them to bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future. You command the blessing where there is unity. God, we give You glory for every answered prayer, and the great things You are doing in this nation! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We choose to pursue that which glorifies God as He brings greatness to America!

Learning to be a Fighter

“I want you to learn to be a fighter this year. Don’t let Satan run over you like a smooth road. Decree and declare, ‘This is my reset year. This is my year of restitution. This is my year of restoration. This is a year when I’m going to see a blessing come to my life.’ You’re going to have to fight for it, and you need to be right with God. Make sure that you’re aligned with the Lord. Make sure you’ve forgiven anybody you need to forgive. If things happened to you last year, leave those things behind in forgiveness, okay? It works. Forgive; it’ll make you feel so good to forgive. And those people you haven’t forgiven, usually they don’t care if you’re upset with them for the most part. 

“Here are some principles to understand about resetting and restitution:

“Number one: Satan is the thief. Don’t be mad at God. Satan is a thief, and we have to understand that we need to rise up and say to him, ‘No, you cannot have my family. You cannot touch my finances. You cannot have these circumstances that are coming.’ Imagine if you are in a relationship with someone and you have blessed them so much, and they’re just mad at you, because bad things happen. Well, you didn’t cause those bad things to happen. It was someone else, maybe a thief or something. This is what the Bible is trying to say to us. Look, it is Satan that is robbing you. The Lord says, ‘I’ve come to give you life and life more abundantly.’

“Number two: Jesus came to give us an abundant life. 

“Number three: it’s not automatic. 

“Number four: we need to claim the provision. 

“Number five: people do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he’s starving. This is Proverbs 6:30 and 31. Yet when he’s found, he must restore sevenfold. He may have to give up all the substance of his house. 

“Decide: this is a year of complete realignment. I’m going to grow into my skin. I’m going to come into the purpose and destiny of God. I’m going to have restoration and restitution.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.” (Proverbs 6:30-31; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Decree and declare, “This is my reset year. This is my year of restitution. This is my year of restoration. This is a year when I’m going to see a blessing come to my life.”
  • Read Proverbs 6:30-31. Believe it! Call back everything that has been stolen from you by the enemy.
  • Say out loud, “No, you cannot have my family. You cannot touch my finances. You cannot have the circumstances that are coming in my life.” 
  • Declare abundant life over yourself and your family.
  • Tell the enemy he gets to give you a seven-fold return of all he has taken from you.
  • Thank the Lord for this spiritual law.

A prayer you can pray:

God, You are so faithful! You are the Giver of all things. You give life, health, provision, grace, peace, and so many other things. You are not the taker. You are not the thief, though the devil would like us to think so. You have brought the Church to a unique time, and I say, “This is my reset year. This is my year of restitution. This is my year of restoration. This is a year when I’m going to see a blessing come to my life.” I call back everything the enemy has stolen from me. In every situation where he has thought he could take advantage of me. Lord, provide me the faith to get up and demand my health, wealth, peace, etc., back! To every force of darkness, I say, “No, you cannot have my family. You cannot touch my finances. You cannot have the circumstances that are coming in my life. You are not going to stop what God is doing. You get to give back seven-fold what you have stolen from me!” God, You are giving me and my family abundant life! Thank You for everything, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

This is the year of reset, restoration, and restitution!

God is Restoring it All!

“You know, Mike and I had such a year of joyful increase. We took the word about reset, restoration, and restitution seriously. In fact, Mike and I always do this: we sow into the word; we give offerings. The Bible says that ministers are worthy of double honor, so we personally believed; we started giving cash offerings to different people we knew. We began to sow and sow. We cast our bread upon the waters, and God just brought it back on every wave. It’s amazing. I had spent some money, and we were at a point where we needed a blessing to come; then I found some money I didn’t even know I had. God is just wonderful to us. 

“Going into the Promised Land was a reset for the children of God. That was an alignment coming into their destiny as a people. When we heard this word, Mike and I knew we needed to reset. There were things that we owned that were broken. There were things I had that we were not able to get fixed. I had a cute little car. Four years ago, I had an accident in that car, and I said, ‘Lord, this is a year of reset for that car.’ We took it in, and we got it fixed for way cheaper than they said. I am driving it now. We were able to work out the problems. And you know what? We had a reset. I mean, it is a little thing. But to me, it was something that was fun. It was something I really loved to drive. So, from four years ago, I had a reset. And God wants to do that for your life.”

“Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy.” (Isaiah 61:7; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Lack often brings shame. Bring any shame to the Lord.
  • When the enemy steals from you, it can make you feel vulnerable. Ask the Lord to be your strong tower and the place of refuge you can run into and be glad.
  • When someone breaks your trust or betrays you, you can harden your heart, close off your life, or even grow bitter. If any of these are happening in your life. Run to His throne of grace to find grace to help in time of need.
  • Is there an area of your life where you just haven’t been able to move forward? Command the way open before you! Say, “The Lord wants to bless me in this area. I am moving forward!”
  • Declare, “God is calling this nation forward into its destiny. No weapon formed against it shall prosper!”

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, You are the shame taker. You are the way maker. You are the One that makes a way when there seems to be no way. It does not matter what Satan has taken. He can’t keep it. Your Word is clear. You want to bless me in this area. I am moving forward! The double portion is coming back into the void. Instead of  shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor we shall rejoice in our lot; therefore in the land we shall possess a double portion; we shall have everlasting joy. We are going to sow. We are going to sow extravagantly! We are going to sow financially. We are going to sow relationally. We are going to sow into people. We are going to sow into missions. We are going to sow into the needs of our communities. We are going to sow into the poor. We are going to sow into election campaigns. We are going to sow by serving others. We are going to sow in intercession. We are going to sow with great joy! We are going to sow and see a harvest in our personal lives and in this nation. You are calling this nation forward into its destiny. No weapon formed against it shall prosper! Kingdom come and will of God be done in this nation, even as it is in heaven, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our loving Father wants to reset and restore big, national things, and small, personal things.

The Year of Reset, Restoration, and Restitution

“It is a year of reset. This is the day when we will be anointed for reset. This reset will bring a breakthrough for relations, for families, for the nation. God is going to turn impossible situations around. That’s an exciting word for 2020, isn’t it? 

“Now, there’s something else connected with this reset. This reset is also going to bring restitution. Many people don’t understand this word, but let’s talk about this prophetically. Restitution was part of the Old Testament law. These were laws of recompense for people that were robbed. They included recompense for loss of animals, bride price, money taking through defrauding the poor or so forth. 

“This was also seen with Zacchaeus. You may remember Zacchaeus in Luke 19 when Jesus said, ‘Zacchaeus come down; I’m going to stay with you today.’ This appalled the Pharisees that Jesus would stay with such a sinner. But it so touched Zacchaeus’ heart that he said to the Lord, ‘Lord, I am now giving half of my possessions to the poor. And if I cheated anyone out of anything, I will give back four times as much.’ In other words, God, through this word of the Lord to Zacchaeus, so moved upon Zacchaeus who had been such a sinner, such a thief, such a cheat and robber. He was the chief of the tax collectors and very rich. Just through Jesus reaching out to him, it convicted him, and he decided he wasn’t going to just give some money to the poor; he was going to give half of his possessions. And any way he cheated people, he was going to restore more than he had to restore. 

“And so, we see that God wants to re-establish what Satan has robbed from you. I love this word. When God spoke this to me and to other prophets as well, I began to believe for restoration. And we’re seeing restoration of relationships. I’m seeing some things happen in situations that were not of my will, different relationships that got broken, even in ministry. I didn’t know what to do about it. I’ve prayed; I forgave. Someone had spoken against me. But you know what? God is doing it, and He’s doing it in such a way that it’s just beautiful to see.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Has the enemy stolen anything from you, recently? Or, are you carrying pain from a prior season of loss? Bring that situation to the Lord right now.
  • Let’s believe God will give you restitution. Why don’t you make a list? Make a restitution list, a restoration list. And say, okay, this year I want my life in this new era to have a reset. I want my life in this new era to be changed. You know what? God can do that for you. 
  • Intercede for someone else you know who is living through an unjust situation.
  • Each Believer has a different thought on which is the most significant issue of injustice our nation is facing. This could be a local issue, a statewide issue or a national issue. What has the Lord shown you? Call for a reset, restoration and restitution from the enemy into that situation you care passionately about.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are the God of restoration. I see that You want to re-establish what Satan has robbed from me. I am believing for restoration. You are going to reset my life and restore to me all that was stolen by the enemy. You are going to make him give it all back. My health is coming back. My wealth is coming back. My life is getting back on track. I’m going to see a restoration of relationships. Restore my prodigals. So many things. Satan, you don’t get to keep what you took from me. You have to give it all back! I come into agreement with the prophets and I say this is the season of restoration, and even restitution.

Lord, this isn’t just for me. This is for the entire Body of Christ. (Intercede for that one you know needs a reset, restoration, and restitution, as well.) Satan, you can’t steal from them, either. We are going to join forces against you together until the restoration comes. This isn’t just for individuals, but those societal situations of injustice are going to be dealt with in this season, as well. (Intercede into that thing the Lord has placed on your heart that needs His intervention and turnaround.) I believe this is the season for this thing to unravel. It is time for righteousness and restoration to sweep across this land in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is resetting and restoring what has been lost in former seasons.

God-Solutions are Coming for Violence and Disturbances

“This is a time of very strong violence in the heavens. As we look at nations, we see there’s violence in weather; there’s violence in the earth. There are stronger earthquakes (there was just an earthquake in Bogota), volcanoes erupting, weather-related patterns, fires breaking out. Whether or not these things are natural, they do cause disturbance in people’s lives. 

“In the next few years, we see in the U.S. and other countries that there will be more and more clashes. There are going to be clashes that rise up again, and we need to pray about this. In fact, if we pray about them, we can quell them, and it doesn’t necessarily have to happen. But I see people becoming very heated with one another. And I want to just say from the Holy Spirit that regardless of how you feel politically, there needs to be civility. The Holy Spirit can help us discuss issues, even disagree, without getting mad, without getting angry over it, or without using derogatory speech. I think that we can be Christ-like in how we’re sharing. We are in a Jesus movement, and the love of the lost is breaking out in ways beyond what we can imagine. 

“Great authority to make decrees is coming, and governments will change as a result of these decrees. We also received an exhortation the Lord has really strongly given me: do not simply prophesy the problems from the Earth, but if God gives you these warnings, see heaven’s solutions. In other words, prophesy from the throne of God. We are seated with Him in heavenly places. Prophesy God’s solutions ─ what He wants to do and His heavenly perspective.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways.” (Job 22:28; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Is there a natural disaster that is on your heart? Intercede into it. Decree the goodness and mercy of God into it.
  • Is there a relational conflict or crisis that you are concerned about? Do the same for that.
  • Be very aware and watch for these matters. Learn to do two things: pray ahead of disasters and conflicts, as the Holy Spirit gives you warning. Additionally, pray into them once they manifest. Decree God’s intervention and manifested hand to save.
  • Call forth God-solutions.
  • Cry out for the love of God to be manifest by the Church in the middle of violence, disturbances, and disruptions. Let the Body of Christ be examples of grace and mercy, healing, hope, and encouragement.
  • Declare that the lost will find Jesus in the crisis moments.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, the earth seems to be in upheaval. We know Your Word tells us that this will be more and more the case as the time of Your coming draws near. We want to keep our eyes on You and help navigate the challenging situations the earth will face. We know there will be natural and man-made crises. We know there will be need of physical and spiritual intervention. Show us what we need to be watching over and watching for. Raise up the local, national, and international watchmen on the walls. Let us get ahead of tragedies before they can even strike. However, if they do, let us intervene in intercession and action to bring quick resolutions and healing to our communities. Let Your people be the ones with the answers.

Lord, revivals often accompany natural disasters. People start looking for You in hard times. Some will lean toward rejecting You, but let us get to them first! Let us bring Jesus’ hope and life into the pain and despair of loss. Lord, send us into the harvest. Make us Your hearts, and mouths, ears, hands, and feet; bringing the Gospel to those Who need You. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Ekklesia will prophesy solutions from heaven into the problems of the earth. God will hear and answer!

Prophecy is Increasing

“The Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders met in Dallas in November 2019, as we do every year. We saw that the prophetic is going to rise up in many spheres of authority. There are going to be marketplace prophets. We were talking to one the other day, and he was telling us that when he’s with a group of business people, he gets very detailed words. Some people call that an ‘Issachar Prophet ’─ one that knows the signs of the time. Chuck Pierce, I think, is certainly one of those, and there are others as well that are that kind of prophets. So, look for some more revelation on, and a fleshing out more, of these [different] kinds of prophetic types. We know there are Psalmists that will sing just the word of the Lord. It will be exactly what needs to be heard. 

“Another thing we heard in this year of the voice was that we need to let the Spirit’s voice be heard around the world and be established. And here are some ways: 

·         Number one, a voice of warning. Watchmen will be sounding the alarm. If you are feeling something coming that is dangerous to your nation or if you had a dream, many times that’s God telling you to pray about that thing. 

·         Number two is being a voice of righteousness. 

·         Number three, increased guidance will be given through the prophets to world leaders. There are governmental prophets rising up, and it’s very exciting. This is a really common occurrence for me to speak to world leaders, to give them prophetic counsel, or to prophesy to them. That’s one of the jobs of the Prophet.

·         Another way the voice will be heard is through decrees and proclamation.

·         Another is wise choices in what we preach. 

“I saw a vision of the word ‘watch’, and the Lord told me that He was going to confirm that we are going to have more intercessors. They’re going to have more war rooms, and we’ll be able to watch and be watchmen.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (1 Peter 1:21; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Welcome the increase of the prophetic in this era.
  • Declare, “In the last days, our young men and women will prophesy. We are excited about that!”
  • Call forth the prophets to different sectors of society – especially prophets to business, to government, to education, to media, to arts and entertainment.
  • Intercede now that their character will line up with the Word, so they can carry the call. “We call them righteous, holy, set apart unto the Lord and His work.”
  • Decree, “Prophets will be raised up and trained quickly in protocol and proper delivery for their arena of influence. Put Your Words in their mouths. We decree the way open for them. Divine alignment! Divine connections! Open doors that no man can shut!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, it is time for the prophets to arise in the nation. We welcome the increase of the numbers of prophetic voices. We say they are necessary for the time. We welcome them into all areas of society, especially those where they have not been seen very often, such as in business, government, education, media, and arts and entertainment. You have positioned many in the marketplace. Stop them from thinking they are in the wrong place in service to You. They are in the exact right place. Now, let their voices be heard! Let them speak forth strategies, policies, inventions, and laws. Let them encourage bosses over them and employees under them. Let them decree the success of the venue in which they have been placed. Let the world see what is happening and be drawn to Jesus.  Let prophesy increase for the building up of the Body of Christ and the expansion of Christ’s Kingdom in the earth!

We call these prophets righteous, holy, set apart unto You and Your work. You are raising up prophets who will be trained quickly in protocol and proper delivery for their arena of influence. Put Your Words in their mouths. We decree the way open for them. Divine alignment! Divine connections! Open doors that no man can shut, Jesus!” Amen.

Today’s decree:

We welcome the prophets coming forth in every sector of society!

Learning to Fight for Your Promised Land

“So, we say that this is a season where we’re going to have to go to war if we’re going to get into our Promised Land. Looking at the biblical symbolism of taking your Promised Land, when the children of Israel crossed the Jordan, there were all kinds of tests and things they had to do. They didn’t just stand on the Promised Land and say, ‘Well, here I am!’ and all the giants ran away, and all the problems ran away. No, they had to fight for it. 

“This is a season where we’re going to have to go to war to come into our reset and our blessings and our purpose. But don’t let that make you afraid. Just learn how to go to war ─ it’s very important. We need to know how to navigate in prayer and deal with the powers of darkness coming against us. We need to go back and re-teach those things that we taught many years ago. One of the things that my generation should do is teach the next generation what we know, and my generation knew how to go to war.” (Cindy Jacobs)

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Tell the Lord how badly you want to see what He has promised to you.
  • Declare how much you want to see His promises to your city, state, and this nation come to pass.
  • Congressman Louie Gohmert recently said, “Many Christians lean on their shovel and pray for a hole.” There are times when the Lord wants you to do something toward the answer of your prayers. Say, “Here I am, Lord. Send me!”
  • Brush up on spiritual warfare. Read all the warfare passages of the Bible. Ask Holy Spirit to teach you. Read books on the topic like Intercessory Prayer and Possessing the Gates of the Enemy.
  • Think about those in your circle of influence who are younger than you. What about Believers who are newer to the Kingdom? Do you know something about spiritual warfare that you can teach them? Make a plan to do it. Use technology – conference calls or video-chat services, like Zoom, Periscope, etc. Don’t hesitate! Put the word out!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, this is the year I am taking the promises You have given me very seriously. It is time for those things to become reality! You have said it is the year, so I will stir up my faith to believe it. I declare that Your promises over my life and my family are coming to pass (name them). I declare that the promises You have made to my city are manifesting this year. My state is going to line up with prophetic words spoken over it. The United States of America has had numerous Words given and many are manifesting now. I will decree them again as if they have already come to pass. (Google some or search Elijahlist to find those words and decree them!)

Lord, I want to be an answer, not just an intercessor. I want feet put to my prayers. Here I am. Send me. What would You have me to do? As I remind myself of the principles of spiritual warfare, show me who I can take along on that journey. Who can war alongside me? Who can I teach? What is our assignment? Give me Your plan and make the way clear for me to accomplish it. I am willing to learn new things, like how to use certain technology, so I can equip someone else. Thank You, Jesus, for Your leading, guiding and directing. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The older will teach the younger, and we will war together to secure our nation in Him!

Singing a Song of War

We are in a fascinating new era. It is going to be fast-paced and fruitful. There will be challenges, but it will be important how we face those challenges. We have to remember that we are in the decade to open up our mouths! No more silent, hopeful petitions. It’s time to open the heavens and partner with the Lord in the earth, declaring and decreeing our way forward. Here’s an important revelation from Cindy Jacobs:

“This year in the Hebrew is 5780. There’s symbolism in this to help us understand what the Holy Spirit is saying. It’s not only a new era, but it is a year of the voice. Now what do we want to say about the year of the voice? 2 Chronicles 20:20 says:

‘So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”’

 “Then he goes on to talk about something that is very critical for this season: 

“And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: ‘Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever.’” (2 Chron. 20:21, NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Did you realize you can decree and declare in song? Shift your mindset to worship and praise differently.
  • Our focus should always start with worship directed to God. Tell Him how wonderful He is!
  • Now, declare His goodness, His might, His victorious, overcoming nature. Imagine the enemy listening to you extol the virtues of the Lord.
  • Now, make it personal. What are you warring for? What does the Word say about that situation? Praise God for the outcome in advance!
  • Did you listen to the State of the Union Address last night? Look for the transcript on Praise God for the wonderful things He is orchestrating in our nation right now. National support for Life, guarantees of freedom of religion, alignment with Israel, and a strong economy and jobs. Among other things.
  • Declare, “Let God arise, and our enemies be scattered!” 

A prayer you can pray:

God, we praise You! You are worthy of all of our worship and honor and praise! You know our circumstances and have already provided a way out! We will open up our mouths in the midst of our enemies and we will extol Your virtues. You are holy, righteous, and glorious. You are merciful and kind. You are just and You redeem us from the traps the enemy lays for us. You are the way-maker. You put Your words in our mouths, so we hit the mark when we intercede. We will decree the decrees of the Lord and we will be victorious over all the works of the evil one against us. Teach us to war with those words from that place of intimacy with You. From under the shadow of Your wings, we will prevail. What can the enemy do to us? He cannot access us there.

We declare that the praises of God are a two-edged sword in our mouth. They cut the way open and they destroy all the works of darkness. Nothing is left behind that can stand in the way of Your plans. We decree that You are turning our nation around completely. Nothing the enemy can do can stop it! You are using President Trump to right so many wrongs of the past. He has committed to stand for Life and end abortion in America. He has been a strong advocate to end human trafficking. He has worked hard to strengthen our economy and put Americans to work again across all sectors – all Americans, every race, every neighborhood, city and rural, every age, male and female. He and his team are figuring out balanced and fair immigration standards, healthcare solutions, education options, the opiod crisis, diminishing student loan debt, and many other things. He has come alongside Israel and is helping form a workable solution to the Mid-East peace process. You are the reason. He is listening to Your people. He values prayer. Lord, President Trump is Your instrument, but we praise You for this turnaround! We say, “Our mighty God will vanquish all of our enemies! There is nothing they can do to stop You when You are on the move, Jesus!” Amen.

 Today’s decree:

Let faith arise! Let our voices be heard in praise! Let our enemies be scattered!

Reverend David Kennedy


Noon ET by Dialing 712-775-7430 with no code, or 712-775-7431 then enter 2452#.

February has been designated Black History Month. A story recently hit the national news that embodies this month. It is the story of Rev. David Kennedy. He lives in Laurens, South Carolina. It’s a small town in a rural area, and for more than 20 years Rev. Kennedy has been working to bring racial reconciliation to that place. You see, that small town housed the World Famous Ku Klux Klan Museum. In 1997, due to an interesting string of events only God could orchestrate, the Reverend ended up owning the building it was housed in.

The reason Rev. Kennedy’s story is in the news right now is that it has been made into a movie about to be released on February 28th. It’s called, “Burden”. The title comes from the name of a man, Michael Burden. Michael was a Klansman who was tasked with killing the reverend, as he “bothered” the Klan. They had lynched his uncle more than 100 years ago, and now one of them had opened a shop filled with Klan memorabilia, called “The Redneck Shop”. Rev. Kennedy tried to get them to close the shop, as he felt it was a magnet for hatred. Instead of being bitter and angry and hating the Klan, Rev. Kennedy decided to walk in the ways of His Savior. He forgave the racist acts, and tried to get them to reconcile with him. His quest began in the 1990s, and the Klan was having none of it. 

However, it appears that God intervened as Rev. Kennedy prayed. The title to the property where the museum was housed was in the name of a key member, Michael Burden. Under pressure from his girlfriend, he tried to leave the group and was kicked out of the building. David saw him on the street with his family and intervened to help him without question. Out of those circumstances, Michael deeded the building to him for $1000. However, there was one caveat: David couldn’t occupy the building while the owner of “The Redneck Shop” still did business there. That tenant finally passed in 2017, clearing the way for David Kennedy to finally heal history and bring full restoration and reconciliation to Laurens. 

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and tender-hearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:31-32; BSB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Notice the years mentioned in the story above. Rev. Kennedy was not working to end racial hatred in his town in the 1920’s or the 1960’s. It was 1996 to now. Let that sink in.
  • Follow the directions in Ephesians 4:31-32 and make sure there is nothing negative in your own heart or mind toward any other racial group. 
  • Are you aware of any racially charged situation(s) in your city? Intercede regarding it.
  • Pray that the Lord uses the movie, “Burden”, to highlight how the Church moved to lovingly correct history in their town. Pray it catches on!
  • Decree, “I will pray and act to end racism and bring reconciliation in my own community. Racism will eventually end in the United States of America.”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, what a motivating story of the persistence of Your love in Your people. Rev. Kennedy never gave up. He knew what you wanted him to do. He had a choice to hate because of his uncle’s lynching by the Klan, or to forgive. He chose the latter, then he lived it out. You set up the circumstances, and he walked right into them and through them in righteousness. I am very sure it was not easy. I can imagine it was frightening at times for him and his family, but he leaned on You, and look at the outcome! Now, the whole world will be able to see what Your love can do. History is being corrected in Laurens, South Carolina. Hate is being challenged and love is winning. We need a whole lot more of that in America. This is one of countless racial conflicts happening in the U. S. on too consistent a basis. Make us the answer, Lord. We are supposed to be, but we often ignore things, because it’s scary or hard. If we are confronted, let us show love. If there is any opportunity for us to engage hate like this, give us the opportunity to bring You into the middle of it. Use Rev. Kennedy and Micheal Burden’s story to shift the nation’s mindset. Let the world see the love of Jesus. I will pray and act to end racism and bring reconciliation in my own community. Racism will eventually end in the United States of America, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

One situation at a time, one town at a time, we will repent, forgive, and heal our land.
