The Year to Take Down Giants
I feel the Lord is saying this is the year of laying siege. This is a year of warfare, but it’s different. It’s not a year when we defend, watching to be sure the enemy doesn’t get in anywhere. This is a year we are on the offense. This is a year we initiate. This is not a year we react to what the enemy is doing. It’s a year we make him react to what we are doing. We aren’t going to wait and see what happens in this nation. We are going to determine what happens over this next year. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be naive. This is the year of the taking down of giants.
The Lord is saying, “I will give you the ability to know the plans of the enemy in advance. You don’t have to be defensive. I’ll show you what he’s going to do before he knows he’s going to do it. I’ll show you what he’s going to do, because I will influence him to do it. I will cause him to move right into your trap.” The Lord told me, “You start now and you go through next October. I want that to be one continuous siege against the enemy!” This is the year we take out giants in this nation. This is the year that we knock out giants in this nation. This is the year that we break the back of some of the principalities that have ruled this nation for a long, long time. This year, we will dislodge them. We will uproot them. We will tear down their structures. We will go on the offense, and we are going to kick in the gates of hell this year!
“‘But you—who do you say that I am?’ Jesus asked. Simon Peter spoke up and said, ‘You are the Anointed One, the Son of the living God!’ Jesus replied, ‘You are favored and privileged Simeon, son of Jonah! For you didn’t discover this on your own, but my Father in heaven has supernaturally revealed it to you. I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this truth of who I am will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build my church—my legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it! I will give you the keys of heaven’s kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in heaven.’” (Matthew 16:15-19; TPT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Are you “in”? Are you saying “yes” to the Lord’s invitation to engage in this year-long siege against the spiritual enemies of America?
- Say, “I am going on the offensive with the Lord against Satan and his demonic hoards. We will no allow him to get in anywhere. We won’t allow him to make any headway. We will unravel every one of his plans against America!”
- Say, “See, today You, Lord, have appointed us, Your Church, over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
- Say, “This is the year we will dislodge the spiritual forces that have held the harvest captive.”
- Say, “This is the year we gather in unity with other Believers, filled with faith, decreeing His Word. We will see spiritual giants fall! Name some of those giants.”
A prayer you can pray:
God, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Your victorious Son, we are invading the land this year! We’re going to invade neighborhoods. We’re going to invade cities. We are not just going to respond. We have reached a point where we are going on the offense. We are ready for this, because we are the rising Ekklesia that is Your extension of the Kingdom of God in the earth. The Kingdom of God is not on the defense. The Kingdom of God is advancing! The Church is advancing! This is the year we gather in unity with other Believers, filled with faith, decreeing His Word. This is the year we will dislodge the spiritual forces that have held the harvest captive!
We will see spiritual giants fall! Abortion is ending! Life will spring forth! The courts are being re-set! New and fresh congressional leaders chosen by God will be elected! The President’s impeachment will be thrown over and reversed! The nation will go into revival! Believers will be bold in sharing the Gospel and will have full freedom to do so. The harvest will not be lost, as the Church will lay down their lives to disciple the masses of new Christians. Watch now, as leaders from every sector repent and turn to the Lord! Kanye West was the first of many. There are leaders in government, education, media, arts and entertainment, and business whose radical salvations will even shock the world. They will be truly Yours. They will be 100% sold out to You and will give their fortunes to share Jesus worldwide. Even religious leaders that oppose You or oppose the Holy Spirit will now get right with You and lead their followers right to Jesus en masse. What a year, Lord. The giants are being defeated across the land! Amen.
The Church, God’s legislative Body, is going to kick in the gates of hell this year!
This is the Year of the Watchman
Israel had sentries that would stand on the walls of the cities and watch. They would watch for enemies. Watchmen were positioned all over the walls and if they saw anything suspicious or saw enemies approaching the city, they sounded the alarm. The Lord uses that picture to describe spiritual watching, spiritual walls, and listening. We are not just to watch for enemies, but also for what the Lord is saying. One of the things the watchmen would do was not to just watch for enemies, but to recognize messengers and those who were friendly coming to the city. There were messengers that would run from city to city. The watchmen had to give the okay to let them in.
All of that is important—being watchmen for our families, our communities, our congregations, our businesses, cities, and nations. The facet that I think is most important is the offensive aspect of being a watchman. There are words in Hebrew where this is not only defensive, used as “to guard, protect, keep and preserve”. There are offensive terms, such as “to spy”, as in spying on an enemy so you can ambush them. It can mean “to lay siege to a city”. When you surrounded the city to cut off supply lines so you could capture the city, this term is used. It’s the same term, because you are watching the city so you can take it.
“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me.” (Ezekiel 3:17; ESV)
“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest.” (Isaiah 62:6; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- What is your assignment from the Lord to watch over?
- Write down what you are seeing.
- Ask the Lord what His plan is that the enemy is trying to stop.
- Command the enemy to reveal himself. Command his plans to be uncovered. Command him to cease and desist.
- Call for the people of God to work with the Holy Spirit to stop the enemy in his tracks.
- Declare the plan of the Lord to be established!
- If you have a place of influence, make these things publicly known. Do not let the enemy be able to continue lurking in the darkness, hindering God’s work!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I believe You have given each of us something to watch over. You have given us a time and a season and a place of influence where we can see what You want us to see. As we take our positions, You make sure we see what we need to see. We can sound an alarm to those we are connected with. We want to know what Your plans are. Then, show us how the enemy is working to prevent them. Where is he coming in? How can we stop him? Show us before he even has a chance to work his evil plans.
We say, “Satan, reveal yourself and your wicked plan. You are up to no good and we want to see the full extent of what you are up to. We command you to get in the light. Stop, in Jesus’ Name! Cease and desist! All of your plans will fail, as we war against You in the authority Jesus has given us.”
Lord, we say that no plan of darkness will be effective where You have uncovered it. We have not seen, because we have not positioned ourselves to watch. We haven’t heard, because we haven’t positioned ourselves in an intimate place with You to hear. You want us to watch with You. You want us to warn those in our realm of authority. You want us to war in intercession until our enemies and the enemies of this nation are defeated. You are saying that it is time! Lord, let us watch and pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Let the Lord’s watchmen for America watch, and let the siege against our spiritual foes be effective!
Working Together for the Sake of Kingdom Expansion
What is hard for some of us is that we get stuck in a stream, a camp, one mindset of the Kingdom. God is beginning to demand that we marry some of these anointings. God uses Chuck Pierce and I together to model the functioning of the apostolic and the prophetic together. It’s so obvious when we minister together that there are things Chuck can do that I cannot do. There are some things that I can do that he can’t do. However, when we function as an apostolic and prophetic team, things come to a “fullness” level and God can do whatever He wants. There’s no competition. There’s no posturing. We don’t care who’s doing what. We just do what God says, and the Lord uses us in profound ways. It often surprises us!
We should not be the exception. God is going to start doing this with apostolic and prophetic teams wherever Christians are willing to humble themselves and let the Holy Spirit move with them like this. You will see this all over the place. You will see ministry gifts functioning together. You will see different streams flowing together. People of all denominations are getting Spirit-filled. This is going to release a new dimension to the Kingdom.
“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all…But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:3-7 and 11-13; NIV)
Give Him 15 Minutes in Prayer:
- Rejoice and praise the Lord for the unity He is bringing. His prayers are being answered for the Church to be one, even as He and the Father and the Holy Spirit are one.
- Contemplate what the world will see when they see all the streams loving each other and working together for the sake of the Kingdom.
- Repent for any judgement you have had of other denominations. If you have looked down on them over theological differences, instead of interceding for them, you get to repent. Maybe you are the one with something missing!
- Intercede for the Church, that we will accept and live in the fullness of the Word of God, eliminating nothing from it.
- Declare, “Let faith arise in the Bride and let God’s enemies be scattered!”
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we rejoice in You! You have been working hard to move the Body of Christ into a position in time when Your people would be able to be one. If we look back at history, You had a lot to do! We divided over doctrinal issues over and over and over again. Revealed truth and restoration of truth caused some to stop moving forward, and the splintering became seemingly impossible to heal. We have argued with one another. We have even hated one another and refused to fellowship together. Lord, if we all confess Jesus, there is no reason for this division! Disunity can stop the advancement of Your Kingdom! Let the Church accept one another and live in the fullness of Your Word, deleting nothing! What a beautiful and powerful picture we will be to those who are seeking God!
You have lately been restoring an understanding of the five-fold gifts and callings, given to equip the Church for the work of service. We have flocked together by gift, instead of looked for the parts we were missing. We love only those who are like us. God, forgive us! We will purposely embrace those who have different gifts. We will prefer them over our own and compliment them. We will make room for them.
Let faith arise in the Bride and let all of Your enemies be scattered! Jesus, our Christ, our Savior, may we worship and glorify You in all that we say and do. Amen.
The Church shall walk in unity, making room for each one’s gift, so the world might see Jesus in us.
Living in the Spirit in Everyday Life
There are prophetic gifts in the earth realm right now that are stifled. They are buried by fear. God says, “You are going to have to break out of that fear, and allow me to start using you prophetically.” The Lord wants to start releasing this outside the walls of the church.
He is going to move us into the realm where we are healing the sick on Monday. In fact, a year from now, if you are not seeing miracles take place on Monday through Saturday, you are behind schedule. We are moving into a season where He is tired of being limited to Sunday morning, or a conference. He’s ready to start moving in the supermarkets and the business place, and in the backyard, and in the school buildings. He is tired of being confined. The Kingdom of God is not limited to any building, or on Sunday morning from 10-noon.
God is ready to break out everywhere!
Peter’s shadow couldn’t show up until they moved outside the building. Peter had to be outside in the streets, in the sun. The man at the Gate Beautiful wasn’t healed in a service. He was healed on a street corner. Jesus did most of His miracles outside where the people were. Get out there!
“As a result of the apostles’ work, sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall across some of them as he went by.” (Acts 5:15; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Hear the Lord say to you, specifically, “You are going to have to break out of that fear, and allow me to start using you prophetically.”
- Let any fear that you have fall away as you let that Word penetrate your spirit.
- Meditate on Acts 5:15.
- If you have the time, read all of Acts 3 and 4 and allow the Holy Spirit to increase your faith. Notice the miracles that took place, and where they took place. Notice the effect on the growth of the Church.
- Think about the many places you go in a day. Ask the Lord to move prophetically through you in those places.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I hear You saying, “You are going to have to break out of that fear, and allow me to start using you prophetically.” Your words are reverberating in my spirit man. I know this is the truth. This is the time. I have hidden my gifts in my heart or used them in a safe place inside the walls of the church. I cannot do that any more. Too many need to see You. Too many souls must be saved. As I read chapters 3 through 5 of the Book of Acts, I see that miracle followed miracle and almost none were performed inside the walls of a synagogue. They were done where the people were. The lame man sat for his whole life in a place where everyone could see his need, but none could help him. You used that man’s impossible and hopeless situation to start a major expansion of the Church and the Kingdom. Lord, I want that now! I want to be a part of that kind of a move of God in my generation! This is that generation where we will once again prophesy, heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons, all in the marketplace. We will not hesitate to speak and act everywhere we go. Nowhere can be considered improper for the movement of the Holy Spirit, if it means the salvation of souls. Our places of employment, the halls of our schools, in government offices, at Starbucks, and fast food restaurants, Jesus will be found at work through us. We will express You at football games and theme parks and gas stations. Wherever people are found, we will look for opportunities to be Your hands and Your mouthpiece. Lead us to them, Jesus. Fill our hearts with compassion and our mouths with Your words. Amen.
God is ready to break out everywhere through His people!
Moving in a Prophetic Era
Pastors and teachers, you’re going to need to teach from the River. You are going to have to dare to move out of your notes. The Lord has been trying to stir up a prophetic anointing in some of you for a while. He’s been trying to stretch you. When you get up to speak, you’re feeling the urge to start prophesying, but you’re afraid to make that leap. If you will make that leap, some of you are going to start prophesying 20 and 30 and 40 minutes or an hour. God’s going to start opening up windows of heaven to you. You’re going to get words of knowledge and that’s going to release the power gifts of miracles and signs and wonders.
But, the Lord is saying to you, “I am not going to release the miracles, signs, and wonders, until you let Me break you out of the fear of moving into the prophetic realm. Those gifts flow out of the prophetic realm. They don’t flow out of the “order” realm. Order positions you for it, but the prophetic realm of revelation moves you into the power gifts.
God says, “I want to start moving you into those things, but you are going to have to take a leap of faith and open your heart to revelation.”
“But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel: ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’” (Acts 2:16-21; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Proclaim the prophecy of Joel as related in Acts 2:16-21 or Joel 2:28-32 into the earth.
- Declare, “It is time for the release of the fullness of the prophetic declaration into the earth.”
- Ask God for a greater measure of faith to prophecy, for the Word says we prophecy according to our faith. Determine to prophesy your prayers.
- Say, “I want to start moving with You into greater prophetic declaration and proclamation of things, but I am going to have to take a leap of faith. Open my heart to revelation, Lord.”
- Intercede for the leaders in the Body of Christ to begin to prophesy their messages.
- Pray for the hearts of the people to hear and embrace and act upon the Word of the Lord.
A prayer you can pray:
God, through the prophet Joel, and repeated in the Book of Acts at the birth of the Church, You declared, “I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” We declare in response, “It is time for the release of the fullness of the prophetic declaration into the earth.” Teach us to open our mouths in this era and prophesy. We shall prophesy our prayers and our sermons. We shall prophesy over our families, our cities, and our nation. We shall seek You for Your Words and declare them. We want to start moving with You into greater prophetic declaration and proclamation of things, but we are going to have to take a leap of faith. Open our hearts to revelation, Lord. Help the Body of Christ to move into this prophetic era. Let us hear You clearly, proclaim Your Word, and act on it in Jesus’ name. Amen.
It is the day the Lord shall cause His people to prophesy!
Asking for Wisdom and Revelation Together
There’s a Hebrew word coming to me frequently as I am studying out the Lord releasing more wisdom and revelation to the apostolic and prophetic in this hour. It is the Hebrew word “biyn”. It is a word that comprises both wisdom and revelation in one word. Daniel walked in this. Solomon asked for and was gifted with this. Joshua had this. The sons of Issachar moved in this. They knew what time it was—revelation, so they knew what to do—wisdom. They functioned in both of these things.
When Solomon asked for this, he didn’t use the word that just means understanding, which is the way we think of wisdom. He used the word that means wisdom and revelation. He said, “If I am going to rule this nation, I need to hear from You, Lord. Give me a hearing ear and a hearing heart, and then show me how to apply this.” So, he asked for both of these things.
This is what the Holy Spirit does for us. We are supposed to listen for Him and hear Him quickly, and tune into what He is saying on a daily basis. You are not just supposed to hear from Holy Spirit at a conference. You are not just supposed to hear in a church service. You are not just supposed to hear in your devotion or quiet time in the morning. You are supposed to hear from Him throughout the day. You’re supposed to take Him with you and commune with Him and listen to Him. He wants to talk to you on the job. He wants to say to you things like, “Don’t do that. Go over here and invest and I’ll give you a breakthrough.” He wants to flow through us as we function.
“‘Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around. And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people, a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?’ The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for wisdom.” (1 Kings 3:7-10; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Do not be afraid to ask the Lord, as Solomon did, for ‘biyn”, the spirit of wisdom and revelation operating together. It pleases the Lord when we have the faith to ask Him for things like this.
- Break off any limitations you feel as far as where and when you can operate in the gifts the Lord has given you.
- You may be one that has limited your time of communing with God to a specific time and/or place. Let Him know that you want to walk and talk with Him all through your day. Ask for a grace to turn your heart and thoughts toward Him throughout your day.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord my God, you have made me (insert your role or profession), but I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around. And here I am in the midst of precious people that You care very much about. I want to share Your plan to give them life and that abundantly. Give me a hearing ear and a hearing heart, and then show me how to apply this in my situation, so others can see You, Jesus, in and through my life. I love the time I have set aside to pray and read your Word. I love to go to church and worship You. But, I realize today that I need to walk and talk with You. I want to learn to commune with You as I go about my daily life. I don’t want to relegate you any longer to a specific place and time in my life. You are my life! You are my greatest friend. You are the one who made me and knows me best, even better than I know my own self. Lead me and guide me, Holy Spirit, in the spirit of wisdom and revelation. Show me what I need to know for myself and those around me. Reveal to me how to carry that out in Jesus’ name. Amen.
We are in a movement of intimacy with God where the saints are filled with the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
The Release of Wisdom and Revelation
There is a command of Paul to be filled with the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. Revelation lets us know what to do. Wisdom lets us know how to do it. We take the wisdom from yesterday and apply it to today’s Word. We have to have and move in both. I believe we are going to find ourselves in situations in the coming year where we’re going to hear Him say something to us that will be a reminder of something we have heard Him say to us in the past. It will be something He said in the past, but it is for now. We are going to have to very quickly go back through the files of His Words in our memories. Then, we are going to say, “Now, Lord, show me how to do what You are saying.”
We are moving into one of the most significant “we’ve never been this way before” seasons of our lifetimes. We are going to have to daily do the dance of moving between wisdom and revelation, “What are You saying? How do I do it? What are You showing me? How do I apply that to my life, to this ministry, to this city, to this nation, to this situation, to this circumstance?” We are going to have to move in this to a higher level than we ever have before.
To me, it is one of the ways of expressing the apostolic and prophetic anointings. The apostolic is the wisdom and the prophetic is the revelation. These two things work hand in hand. We are going to have to go to a whole new level of walking in the prophetic and apostolic, wisdom and revelation, anointings. As we do that, we are going to be equipped fully to bring the Kingdom influence that He wants to bring into our regions. We will know what He is saying, and we will have the wisdom to apply it, and know how to build His kingdom correctly in that area.
“He has made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to bring all things in heaven and on earth together in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:9-10; BSB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Have an expectancy for the outpouring of the spirit of wisdom and revelation.
- Begin to remind yourself of any Words you have received that have not yet come to pass. You may have forgotten them and now need the Lord to remind you of them.
- Petition the Lord for an outpouring of the spirit of wisdom and revelation, especially in the knowledge of Him.
- Ask Him to reveal to you what He is doing and saying, and what you are to do with that information.
- Specifically ask the Lord to make known to you the mystery of His plan to bring all things together in heaven and earth in Christ.
- Say, “I want to help build and advance Your Kingdom plan in my area of influence—in my neighborhood, on my job, in my city, in my region.” If you have a statewide call, a national call, and/or an international call, add that.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, I am stirring up an expectancy today to line up with what the prophets are saying. It is time for a fresh outpouring of Your spirit of wisdom and revelation. I must know what You have said to me that has been waiting for now. Remind me of them and show me what to do with them. Take me back to Your written Word and make it come alive again. Reveal to me what You are saying now. How do I do it? What are You showing me? How do I apply that to my life, to my ministry, to this city, to this nation, to this situation, to this circumstance? How will the apostolic and prophetic connect to advance Your Kingdom? How do heaven and earth work together to make Christ known? How do You want the Kingdom to advance in this era? I want to help build and advance Your Kingdom plan in my area of influence—in my neighborhood, on my job, in my city, in my region. Connect me where you need to. Align me where I am needed. Give me the gifts I need, the wisdom I need, and the revelation I need. To You be the Glory, Jesus! It is time! Amen.
God is releasing His wisdom and revelation to the apostolic and prophetic anointings, so His Kingdom can be built correctly and quickly in this nation!
Being Filled With the Holy Spirit
In Ephesians 5:18, the Lord tells us to be filled with the Holy Spirit. First, it’s not a suggestion. It’s a commandment. Secondly, it’s not a one-time thing. We preach an experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit, but it’s not a one-time thing. The literal translation would be, “Be filled and keep on being filled.” In fact, it wouldn’t be an accurate translation to translate the verse, “Stay filled with the Spirit.” Even though that’s the goal, that’s not how it works. You can’t get filled and just stay filled. You have to keep on being filled.
I believe it was Dwight Moody, one of the great evangelists in history, who said, “I have to keep being filled over and over again, because I leak.” I think a good way to think of this is to realize that God never expected you to experience this once. He expected us to experience on a daily basis the Wind of God filling us again. The river, the breath, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, day by day by day, was the expectation. You stay filled by being filled over and over and over again. It is a continuous process.
So, He is coming to fill us again and again and again. As He does, the wineskin stays fresh and the wine stays new and you always have plenty to give as you are filled and refilled and refilled and refilled.
“Do not get drunk with wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.” (Ephesians 5:18; NIV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Repent of any known sin in your life. Repent if you have held the Holy Spirit at arms length at all due to disappointment or doubt and unbelief.
- Has your love grown cold, your prayer life become brief, or your faith limited? You need a refreshing of the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
- Ask the Lord to fill you afresh with His Holy Spirit today.
- Many in the Church do not believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Pray that their eyes are open to the truth and necessity of this verse.
- Pray that the Church plans to share the baptism with the Holy Spirit with every new convert and that we are comfortable doing so.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, I come before You today knowing that I am a sinful person. I know that my sins were all washed away by the shed blood of Your Son, Jesus, on the day I received Him as my Savior and Lord. Yet, I know that when I continue to open my life to sin without repentance, I deny the work of the Holy Spirit to sanctify me. I must be filled again with Your Spirit. I must have the guilt and condemnation, the ensuing doubt and unbelief removed from my mind and my heart. I must come close to You again and walk without hinderance in Your power. I must hear the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit clearly. I want to display Your Glory to those without You. So fill me again that I may make You known in the earth. Lord, let my brothers and sisters in Christ know of the fullness of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We can be saved with that measure of the Holy Spirit given at salvation, but to walk in increasing relationship with You, we must have increasing measures of Your Spirit. Let us not limit You! Let us welcome all of You! Holy Spirit, fill us full to overflowing in the power and Glory of the Lord. Let the world be able to see Christ in us. Let us work the works that Jesus did, and greater, as He promised. Let us be fully convinced and comfortable ministering the baptism of the Holy Spirit and power to brand new born-again believers. What a powerful Church the world will see! Such is Your Kingdom, Jesus. Amen.
It is time for the Church to be filled anew with the Holy Spirit!
Update on the Impeachment Hearings
“We are now three weeks into wall-to-wall coverage of House Democrats’ impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
“On the one hand, this is a historic moment – even if historically outrageous – and you may feel compelled to pay close attention. On the other hand, you may be sickened by the political posturing and the seemingly predetermined outcome. You would have sizable company either way. I am one of those closely tracking the impeachment proceedings. I think it is shameful and damaging to our country, but I want to know what is happening and I want to pray through it. In case you are not so glued to the play-by-play, allow me to summarize.
“Over the last three weeks, the House Intelligence Committee has held public hearings featuring the testimony of foreign policy officials. At issue is whether or not President Trump directly conditioned about $400 million in American military aid to Ukraine as an exchange for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky investigating the business dealings of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s son. In other words, Democrats are attempting to establish a narrative that Trump is guilty of bribery.
“Even if this is all just political posturing, I do not believe the outcome is actually predetermined. There is a battle going on here, but it is not simply Republican versus Democrat. It is not just about the 2020 election. There is an ongoing spiritual battle between light and darkness in America, and the heart and soul of our nation hangs in the balance. God is using the Trump administration to do much good at home and abroad. This president is arguably the most pro-life, pro-religious freedom, and pro-Israel president we have ever had. Now look at how he is being attacked—through lies and distortions. Specifically, look at this impeachment proceeding. May God have mercy on us and help us. May He elevate those who truly seek truth and justice.”
“Justice is a joy to the godly, but it terrifies evildoers.” (Proverbs 21:15; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by Dave Kubal):
- Pray for truth to prevail in this contentious time, not distortions and leaks.
- Pray for peace and harmony in our nation. This impeachment crusade is doing harm, not good. It is only feeding impulses of anger and discord.
- Intercede for the spiritual powers of peace, hope, joy, and love to overcome powers of rancor and destructive division plaguing our homeland.
- Pray that Christians would wake up and see that there is a spiritual battle for the heart and soul of the nation.
- Ask the Lord to intervene, to determine what justice is in this situation, and to set things in order in America.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, we appeal to heaven for Your justice in the matter of the impeachment hearings of President Donald J. Trump. We intervene and intercede between what is and ought to be. Lord, our justice system is set up such that a person is considered innocent until proven guilty, but in this case, the president is being tried as if he is guilty and has to prove his innocence. Indeed, one legislator even made that comment! We ask for truth and justice to replace innuendo and rumor. We also ask You to heal the things that divide us. Only a move of God can. When a famous media personality like Bill Maher stresses his concern that America is so divided he fears another civil war, then we must have Your help! Give us Your supernatural peace, hope, joy, and love to overcome powers of rancor and destructive division plaguing our homeland. Wake the Church up fully! We have come a long way, but not all are paying attention yet. We must have our eyes open to the spiritual battle that is taking place for the soul of America. Intervene, Jesus. Determine this case. Show us what justice looks like in this matter. Set things in order in America! Amen.
God Himself will bring justice to the impeachment proceedings. He alone will determine the outcome!
