Why the Lamb?

What a great season this is! I am privileged to announce the Cross and the Resurrection! I believe God is moving us into a fresh beginning in this season. There are people that come to our churches in this season that don’t come any other time of year. They may not know much about this season. They watch us online. The wonder, “What is Passover all about? What are the palm branches all about? Why is a lamb important?”

I heard of a young man recently beginning to attend a congregation. The church began to sing, “Worthy is the Lamb.” He walked over to the pastor’s wife and asked, “So, what’s with the lamb?” He had no religious background whatsoever. Think about it. To him, it would have been no different if they’d been singing about a cow or a dog or a horse. “What’s with the lamb?” So let’s look at why the lamb. 

Passover is all about the sacrificial lamb that was offered when God was about to deliver Israel out of Egypt. Israel was told to put the blood of the Passover Lamb on the doorposts. Every house that had it, the angel of death would pass over. They would be protected from the death of the firstborn—the final plague God used to deliver Israel from Egyptian bondage.

From that moment on, the sacrifice and deliverance that would be celebrated every year came to be called, “Passover”. That sacrificial lamb came to be called, “the Passover lamb”. God delivered His people and brought judgement to His enemies. All of that was simply leading up to the sacrificial Lamb that was Jesus. 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, ‘Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29; NKJV)

“For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.” (1 Corinthians 5:7b; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Revelation, chapter 5.
  • Thank the Lamb for His sacrifice. His shed blood has saved you, healed you, and delivered you.
  • Declare, ““Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
  • Worship and say, ““Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
  • Dance around with joy and praise Him!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the picture you painted at the Passover is a poignant picture, striking in its symbolism. That picture was fulfilled by Your Son! We need to embrace the reality of what Christ did as He became that sacrificial Lamb, foretold in the Passover preparation. We need to remember the power of the shed blood to save and deliver—from slavery to sin and from bondage of every other god. Nothing can rule over us now, for whom the Son sets free is free indeed! 

We are going to dance on our enemies! That’s what Passover is all about! That’s when You danced on the devil. It’s when You danced on our disease. That’s when You danced on our failures. That’s when You danced on our sin. Let Your Church hear the Word of the Lord for this season. Bring us through our door. Let us decree, “The blessings of being passed over and the blessings of crossing over are secured for us in Jesus, our Christ!” Amen.

Today’s decree:

Tell everybody! The Lamb of God takes away the sins of the world!

Entering Into Passover 2020

“Passover 2020 will begin tonight at sundown. Those of the Jewish faith (and some Christians) around the world will observe the Lord saving the Israelites from a plague of the death of the firstborn. He did this through His servant Moses, and it resulted in the Hebrews being released from 400 years of slavery. More than that, however, is that this was a foreshadowing of God sending Jesus to save the whole world by His death and resurrection on the cross. Liberation for the Israelites in that time, and for us today, came through God’s mighty works and His outstretched arm. He did it all!

“Most Christians celebrate Resurrection Sunday (or Easter), but we should all also learn to recognize in the Passover service freedom from sin and death through Christ’s sacrifice. Jesus celebrated Passover. That’s what He and the disciples were doing as they celebrated what we call ‘the Last Supper’. Jesus released incredible revelation at His ‘Last Passover Supper’. He was symbolized eternally in the ‘afikomen’, the middle of three matzahs (Jewish yeast-free flatbread). In the service, the afikomen is broken in half, wrapped in cloth, and hidden until after the meal. Later, when the children find it, they come to the father, and he redeems it for a reward. Jesus took the bread, the afikomen, and said, ‘This is my body… broken for you…’ He then took the third cup, the ‘Cup of Redemption’, saying, ‘This is my blood…’ His perfect, sinless blood would be shed on the cross just hours later, once again redeeming humanity with His outstretched arms.” (Jon Bunn)

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.’” (Matthew 26:26-28; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Exodus, chapter 12 alone or with your family tonight and share the story that foreshadowed the coming Christ. 
  • Read John 6:53-58 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-27. In both of these passages, you see Jesus tied to the Passover.
  • Let the revelation of all these passages sink in. How wonderful to see His plan of redemption foreshadowed in Israel hundreds of years before Christ. 
  • Take communion using Matthew 26:26-28 above.
  • Intercede for the Jews to “see” Jesus, their Messiah, as they participate in the Passover seder tonight.

A prayer you can pray (From “The Story of Messiah, Our Passover”):

“When the fullness of the time came, God, You sent forth Your Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, in order that You might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons” (Galatians 4:4-5). You sent Jesus the Messiah to deliver mankind from slavery to sin. Jesus met the legal requirement for mankind’s redemption. As it is written: ‘… the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him’ (Isaiah 53:6). Messiah was cut off out of the land of the living for our transgressions, having died to pay the wages of sin for us. It is the blood of Messiah, our Passover, that causes You, Almighty God, to distinguish us from all others as Your people. All who have believed this report and have placed their trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus the Messiah, have been redeemed from their sins, and have passed from death to life. Messiah came as the sacrificial Lamb of God to provide redemption for all mankind, as it is written: ‘… the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him’ (Isaiah 53:6). Messiah was cut off out of the land of the living for our transgressions, having died to pay the wages of sin for us. It is the blood of Messiah, our Passover, that causes You to distinguish us from all others as His people. All who have believed this report and have placed their trust in the sacrificial death of Jesus the Messiah, have been redeemed from their sins, and have passed from death to life.” Father, we worship You. Jesus, we thank You. Holy Spirit, lead and guide us into all truth. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Jesus is the Passover lamb, given to take away the sins of the world!

Learning to Hear What the Spirit is Saying to the Church – Part 3

I am continuing a series here that was begun on April 5th, which is a slice from a series of prophetic Words Chuck Pierce gave. If you haven’t read those posts, I recommend you do so. Then, you will see a more full picture of what God has been trying to help us see.

October 5-6, 2019 in Ghana, Africa

“We are entering into a decade where we cannot be silent. The Word of God says, ‘Cry day and night watchmen.’ Stay upon the walls. This is a time that your voice in this land will be heard. Between March and April, there will be chaos. There will be sounds that you’ve not heard. Sounds of the enemy trying to make an advancement. But, the Lord says, ‘The sound of My voice through My people will rally and be heard in this land.’ 

November 8, 2019 in Corinth, TX

“There’s a setup through man that has set structures in place. You are going to start seeing some tremendous deaths. Record the deaths, for the Lord says, ‘When sin abounds, death abounds. You watch as I start causing certain dominos to topple.’”

January 13, 2020 in Corinth, TX

“The Lord says, ‘There is a truth that I will uncover coming out of China that has never been seen before. Truth that is not seen is about to be uncovered.’ Lord, we say that as we are going through this, You will cause Your breath to blow and cause an awakening in the nations. You’re drawing us near. We’re submitting. We’re resisting. The enemy must start backing away. Territories will now start awakening. This is the beginning of an awakening conquest throughout the earth. 

“People will be repositioned. They’re letting go of places where they have been to be reordered by You for a new portion. Structures are beginning to say, ‘We have to re-form.’ We say, ‘The health structure will start re-forming. It will be bypassed by healings until it comes into a new order.’

January 20, 2020 in Fort Worth, TX

“My people need to tighten up their belts, because I’m going to teach them, starting now, to do exploits. They will take resources they have access to and they will begin to re-create those resources and bring them into a new law of use. Great creativity will come in resources. It could also be a rollercoaster type year and we need to tighten up for the ride ahead. It can also mean you’re going to be lean and mean. The Lord says, ‘Behold, I do a new thing. Do you not perceive it?’ That says to us that we could miss it. Thankfully, this year it’s going to be very difficult to miss what God is saying and doing. We’re going to be desperate this year. Desperation and crisis creates a move of God.”

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Cry day and night watchmen! Don’t get off the walls! Open up the Word and decree it!
  • Let the Lord’s voice be heard through your voice, so He can rally the people.
  • Ask the Lord to uncover truth. There is a reason He said that through Chuck. There is truth He wants to expose. Pray it can get out. Bind “conspiracy theory”, so truth can be revealed and discerned. 
  • Say to some earthly structures, like healthcare and the church, “Be reformed!” Let God show you what other structures need reformed.
  • Take inventory of your resources. Individuals and families, do this as as a household. Business owners and managers, do this for the business. Pastors and leaders, do this for your churches and ministries. What do you have that the Lord can commandeer and restructure, fitting it for better use.
  • Call out in intercession for the new move of God!

A prayer you can pray:

God, we are going to agree with You now. We are going to submit to You and see the salvation of our God. We are going to say what You are saying and do what You show us to do. Worldly structures will shake and fall, but Your people will rise up in the midst of the adversity. We will pray and we will say and we will gather our resources and we will act. There are things You are wanting us to let go of. There are things You will graciously take from us. You are delivering us and we must let You do this. You will add to us what we cannot even begin to imagine. For these are the days of the miraculous. These are the days of multiplication, when it looks like a season of loss.

Help us to see. We need to have eyes that look in the natural and ears that hear in the natural, but then discern in the Spirit what You are doing. Then, we need to align with You. We need to declare what You are saying. We need to form in the earth what You are doing. We need to prepare and believe, so You can manifest in the miraculous in our nations. You are aligning and realigning. You are moving some of us. You are having us let go of some old places and manners of provision, so You can create the new in us. Glory be to the Name of Jesus! These are the days where Jesus will be seen in the earth! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is doing a new thing! Let the miracles begin!

Learning to Hear What the Spirit is Saying to the Church – Part 2

I am continuing a series that began yesterday. If you haven’t read that post, I recommend you do so, and read tomorrow’s post, as well. Then, you will see a more full picture of what God has been trying to help us see.

August 3, 2019 in Corinth, TX

“What we are entering into is an era, a decade. The decade is actually called, ‘Speaking forth your liberty.’ We are going to see so much upheaval coming in the earth realm that you’ll just have to hang on for dear life. There will be so many issues rearranged, because of the voices that are coming forth. This is what the whole next decade is about. Each year will have a different significance. We’ll keep repeating that until we get it.”

October 5-6, 2019 in Ghana

“This is what the season ahead looks like. Moses has been working the same way he’s been working for the last 40 years. All of a sudden, in the midst of him doing that, a bush begins to burn. Here’s the key issue about the decade ahead. God is going to interrupt our last season. I’m going to say that again. He’s going to look at your last season. He’s going to look at the last 40 years. Then, all of a sudden, He’s going to come down in the midst of it and He’s going to interrupt it. 

“Bushes burn out in the desert. That was not unusual. But, a faith-action rose up in Moses. The Bible says that all of a sudden Moses turned to go look at the bush. There was a faith in Moses that moved him. God is going to be looking for that faith in us. We are going to have to recognize the interruption. In the midst of that, we are going to turn and look ‘at that bush’ and recognize this is not the same thing as burned last week. This is not the same thing that burned three years ago. All of a sudden there’s this Divine interruption and Moses comes face-to-face with the bush, and God says, ‘Take your shoes off. You’re in a new place.’ All of a sudden God reveals Himself to Moses. Then, God says, ‘I’m ready for you to do some things that I’ve prepared you for 40 years ago. But, you weren’t capable of completing then. Now, I’m calling you into them and you will be used not only to change a nation, but you’ll be used to deliver a nation.’ Say, ‘The Divine interruption is on the way!’” (Chuck Pierce)

“Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, ‘I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.’ When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, ‘Moses! Moses!’ And Moses said, ‘Here I am.’ ‘Do not come any closer,’ God said. ‘Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.’ I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.’” (Exodus 3: 1a, 2-5, and 10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord in the Spirit or pray in tongues until You feel His Presence, and feel faith rise up in you.
  • Say out of that place of faith, “I will speak forth my liberty as the Lord reveals it to me! The Church will speak forth its destiny as the Lord gives us words to speak! We will be able to create the way into the breakthrough for our nation.”
  • Write down what the Lord is showing you is a “burning bush” in your life that He is causing you to turn aside and look at closely. What is the message in it? What is the miracle in it?  
  • What was the Lord doing with you 40 years ago, or at the beginning of your walk with Him if you haven’t walked with Him 40 years, yet? Ask Him to remind you if you don’t remember.
  • Worship Him again. Tell Him you are ready to be interrupted, and ask Him to ready you for fullness of use in this era.

A prayer you can pray:

[Worship the Lord in the Spirit or pray in tongues until You feel His Presence, and feel faith rise up in you.] Father, I declare what You have said out of the faith You are giving me now, “I will speak forth my liberty as You reveal it to me! The Church will speak forth its destiny as You give us words to speak! We will be able to create the way into the breakthrough for our nation.” Show me what I need to turn aside to see. What do You want me to know? What miracle are You manifesting to move me into this next season? Show me clearly. Speak to me clearly. What are You going to do now that You couldn’t do for 40 years of my life [or at the beginning of my walk with You]? What does Your plan require of me in this era? I am ready to be interrupted and poured our for Your beautiful and precious Name’s sake, Jesus. [Worship Him again.]

Today’s decree:

God has brought us into an era of Divine interruptions!

Learning to Hear What the Spirit is Saying to the Church – Part 1

On March 25th, Chuck Pierce’s staff released a video with a compilation of prophetic Words that Chuck had released across the globe over the last year or so. They were literally given across the globe, from Ghana to Fort Worth. I want to share some of these Words with you over the next few days, because there is not one Word by itself  that gave us a clear picture on what was coming. We see in part and we know in part. But, when you put them all together, the picture gets more clear. God was giving us an opportunity to prepare for the season we are now in, and maybe for further on down the road. So, let’s get started. Pay attention and let these Words stir you to pray even more.

October 11, 2018

“This is what we’re in for for the next 2 years and 4 months. Mark it down. We are about to come through a swamp. We’re in this time of breaking out of conventional ways of thinking. This is very key for us if we’re going to make it through this place that we’re headed through. We’re making a shift in the harvest. It’s not what we think. Any time you’re moving into a harvest season, a separation happens and it gets worse and worse and worse, and greater and greater and greater. 

“Over the next 2 years, you will see one of the greatest separations in this nation. It will almost look like the Civil War has come. It’s just that God’s going to have to define this separation for us so that we fully understand it. It will cause His people, filled with the Spirit, to rise up as one. Voices are going to rise up with the anointing. We are going to need to follow after the anointing and we’re going to need to see the anointing, because the separation is going to get greater and greater.” (Chuck Pierce in Chattanooga, TN)

“Gifts of knowledge and prophecy are partial at best, at least for now, but when the perfection and fullness of God’s kingdom arrive, all the parts will end. For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things, as when we stare into polished metal. I realize that everything I know is only part of the big picture. But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God.” (1 Corinthians 13:9-10 and 12; The VOICE)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank God for the wisdom He displays in allowing us to see in part and know in part. It prevents pride, arrogance, division among the members of the Body of Christ, and many other things. Ponder that.
  • Notice Chuck’s time frame is for 2 year and 4 months beginning in October 2018. That takes us to February 2021 or there about. Ponder that.
  • Sit with the Lord and consider the divide in the nation growing deeper. Let Him show you some things. Let Him show you where you must stand as that division occurs.
  • Ask the Lord how you and your family and those with you can come into unity with the true Church as this separation manifests greater and greater.
  • Press into relationship with Him, because obedience and devotion to Him is where the anointing flows from. Want what He wants and not what you want.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are the only wise one. You are wisdom and Your Word tells us to ask or that wisdom. You are more than happy to extend it to us. In the season we are finding ourselves in, it is critical to seek You for wisdom. Help us to realize that anything You show us belongs to You, not us. Therefore, we will freely share it. Keep us from pride that it was us that You released it to. That is foolishness. Let us have no part in that, Lord. We have more important things to focus on! 

Help us to focus now on what Your Holy Spirit is saying to the Church. You are trying to help us navigate our way forward in this new world we are in. Things may not go back the way they were. Jobs are changing. Systems are changing. The way we manifest as the Church is even changing. Some things won’t go back in the box. Some things will be enhancements to what we have been doing. Help us see and understand. 

Show us the depths and complexities of the division we are seeing in the world, this nation, among people groups, among political parties, and within the Body of Christ. You are causing this separation. It’s time to unveil some things and You don’t want us to miss it. Show us how to knit our hearts tightly together with those walking uprightly and in unity with one another. We need one another, and the world needs to see Jesus in our unity. Precious Jesus. Precious Savior. We love and trust You. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Listen carefully! God is trying to reveal to us how to navigate this season.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Final

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: So, last November, I had this Word over you, Dutch: “Gird up your loins.” God used this phrase to Elijah before He had him confront Jezebel. He is saying, “Get a new strength around you with truth, so you have the strength to run the race to overthrow what needs to be overthrown. That’s where you’re headed. It’s the same place our nation’s in.

In Isaiah, God says, “I will loosen the belt of nations.” That means He will make them lose their strength. But, what God was saying to America in January was, “Tighten up your belt and you’ll gain strength for the race ahead.” This is the same thing He is saying to you, Dutch. 

I do think China has had a great strategy in everything we are seeing right now. I don’t think we can stick our heads in the sand and just think, “Oh well, it’s just a virus sweeping through the world.” No. There’s more to it than that. People will try to take advantage of the season. Satan will try to take advantage of the season. He’ll try to change the times and seasons. He’ll try to wear us out. China is really going to be looking to take advantage economically.

I just talked with Christian leaders in China. They said, “What God is looking at is how the voice of God comes out of the Kingdom of God in China.” So, I ask the Church, how are you going to rise up with the right message in the right move of God that can affect the earth? Then, I also look at America. Some of the things that have happened over the last year have positioned us to come into our true identity for the next season and hell is raging over that. 

“Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue nations before him and to loose the belts of kings, to open doors before him that gates may not be closed: ‘I will go before you and level the exalted places, I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron, I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who call you by your name.” (Isaiah 45:1-3; ESV)

“He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.” (Daniel 7:25; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer*:

  • Pray that God will cause His ekklesia to realize who they really are, and whose they really are, and that they will rise to the challenge of being solution-bringers, both now, and in the period after the crisis.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up a Holy generation, who will be launched into the spheres of influence. Declare, “We promise to disciple them in Your Word as the source book for economics, business, education, government, immigration, health care, math and sciences, the arts, and land policy.”
  • Ask God how to better prepare for the future, both individually and nationally. The crisis has shown us which sectors are important for national security— healthcare, education, agriculture (to guarantee food supply), and the biotech industry. Since the expectation is that this won’t be the last pandemic that many of us will experience in our lifetimes, more attention will be paid to these areas in the future.  
  • Declare that we will not align or conspire to execute plans with Pharoah or the gods of Egypt or any other country, leader, system, or demonic power. Say, “We bind, rebuke, and bring to no effect any plans not inspired of the Holy Spirit with regard to global economics.”
  • And, cry out passionately for souls! This is the best setting for a great harvest of new Believers. Declare, “It is time for the prodigals to return home! It is time!” 

A prayer you can pray*:

God, it has become clear that we are not seeking a return to an old normal. We’re seeking kingdom wisdom to help advance the needed “great reset” of the economy. We need Kingdom People to help the nation move towards a biblical worldview where the family is seen as the building block of the nation and its economy. We need a multigenerational economic model built on a biblical base and a belief that our people are key to our wealth.

We are entering a true Passover in the first year of this “Pey” decade, as we prepare to appropriate and apply the blood of Jesus to the doorposts of this house called America. As we are spending time together as families during this plague, we remember You. We will acknowledge our dependence on You, while remaining under the covering of Your blood. We declare that joy will come in the morning, as You deliver us from destruction and bondage, leading us out of Egypt and away from its gods. You are our Source and Provider. You have given us authority, so we declare that our shoes and clothing will not wear out in the days ahead, that manna awaits us every morning, and that as we come out of this dark night, the gold and silver that are Yours will be released into our hands. 

If anything is clear, it’s that we’re not going back to business as usual. This is a major global reset and not a pause. We marry the prophetic revelation being released with Your Word and Your principles, Lord, to bring forth Your strategies. We inquire of You, Father, ‘How would You desire to heal our economy? What are the steps that You would have us take?’ We call forth the Kingdom task force that knows their God, knows what Your Word says, and implements a new structure from Your revelation. We declare that all these things are from You and through You and to You, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Ekklesia, shake off your weariness! Don’t allow Satan to change times and seasons now!

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 7

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: I started asking the Lord on January 1st what He was doing in America this year. He spoke clearly, “Tighten your belt.” I asked Him what He meant by that, because it seemed like everybody was saying we were going to enter into prosperity. He simply repeated, “Tighten your belt. I will teach My people how to do exploits as they enter this new season.” That means they are going to take resources and do things with them and make them into greater resources. Exploits are linked with miracles. 

Exploits are also linked with exploitation. That took me back to how certain nations are going to exploit their strength. You can say whatever you want about America. It is one of the strongest nations in the world. I am seeing America trying to reorder its strength and not exploit it. We have to see this. For us to be doing what we’re doing right now—that’s a miracle!

We have been so materialistically driven, and now we’re pulling aside and saying, “Whoa. Let’s look at this. Let’s reorder this. Let’s pull our workforce into a rest so we can move forward.” When the Lord said to tighten our belt, I knew that economically there has to be a great shift right now. As we cross Passover, I believe, we are at a new place. 

“The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” (Daniel 11:32b; NKJV)

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:31-33; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord. He has all wisdom. He knows exactly what He’s doing. We need to see from His vantage point and this only happens in worship.
  • Repent for any place you have “loved the things of the world.” Now, get ready to perform great exploits! 
  • Ask the Lord what “tighten your belt” means for you and your household. 
  • Do not stop tithing and giving. This is the way the Kingdom of God operates. Give and it will be given to you in the measure you give. Give without fear with your whole heart. 
  • Read Isaiah 17. You may need to give in unusual ways. Remember the miracle God gave through Elijah to the widow with the oil and the flour.
  • Intercede for President Trump and his advisers as they attempt to help our nation navigate into a new and uncharted season. There must be miracles.
  • Begin to pray for what comes next.
  • Boldly come against the rising of individuals or nations who desire to exploit this season and take control of economies. 

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we worship You. You are the Creator of all things! There is nothing in the earth that was made that You did not create. You are even the Creator of ideas and You create the pathways for those ideas to enter the earth realm. You are worthy of our worship. Forgive us where we have not acknowledged You as our sole provider. Forgive us any anger or disappointment in employers or government leaders. Help us get our eyes back on You. 

Forgive us where we allowed the world to take the place of our affections in any way. All of those things are being removed from us now. So many things are being reordered. Our priorities are being reordered. We repent of fear that could cause us to attach to the stuff of the world, the ways of the world, the solutions of the world, the leaders around us, even more than before. Show us what it means to tighten our belts. This season is about focusing completely on You and putting our whole trust in You. We need to be lean and filled with the Holy Spirit, watching and praying, if we are going to do exploits!

This is a good time to focus on the stories of miracles in the Bible. What did You do and through whom did You do it? When did You do it? What was going on at the time? Why did You do it? Help us to learn. Increase our faith. Let us not hoard or stop tithing and giving. These are times to act without fear and do what we know needs done.

In that light, we pray for President Trump, his Cabinet and advisers. They are walking in a place no administration has been since the Great Depression. The nation needs reordered. Give them miraculous insight, dreams, visions, and Holy Ghost downloads into how. You are able, Lord. Let President Trump seek You with all his heart. He looks so weighed down. Let his heart turn fully to You and see that You will make his burden light with Your wisdom. Begin to show the way out. Begin to download the recovery strategies. Don’t let the focus stay on managing the crisis. Keep our enemies at bay. Show us how to outwit the enemy individually and nationally in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits!

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 6

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: God is watching to see how the nation will receive a move of the Spirit in a new way in this season. The Lord says, “How a nation chooses to enter into a new move of my Spirit is how I will stop the destruction that’s coming against it.” I don’t think God created the destruction. We live in a fallen world and a lot of stuff just happens. What I do know is that God can stop it. “If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways and pray, God can stop it.” 

I believe this Passover becomes the greatest turning point in history for the next move of God. The virus will start shifting after Passover. You will start seeing nations rearranged and how they’re aligned with each other. 

I want to say this next thing prophetically. What the Lord has showed me leading to 2022 is that if China made this shift this year without God’s people rising up and praying, China would have full economic domination by 2022. He went on to say that if the Church allowed this to happen, then America would end up looking like China by 2026.

Now, listen! We have a shot to have America be what it’s supposed to be starting this Passover. 

“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. ‘Let us break their chains,’ they cry, ‘and free ourselves from slavery to God.’ But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury. For the Lord declares, ‘I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.’” (Psalm 2:1-6; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pay attention! Let us hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church!
  • Tuck in close to the Lord and get your Bibles out. We need to get directions for prayer.
  • God is separating sheep and goat nations. Sheep nations are those that honor Him as best they can with laws that follow His biblical guidelines. A significant portion of the populace honors Him openly and the government does not stop it. There are efforts made to choose life. They also honor Israel. No nation is perfect, but pray for the nations to choose Him.
  • Ask the Lord how to pray through Passover. Consider fasting or taking communion more often, even daily through this season. We are standing in the gap for a historical shift.
  • Pray through the discussion above about China. Intercede for the way America is aligned with China. Shut the mouth of the dragon!
  • Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we are on the alert! Everything of the watchman is at attention reading the Word of the prophet above. Holy Spirit, speak to us. Speak to those we are in spiritual relationship with. Speak to the leaders of Your Church. Speak to the intercessors, the Ekklesia. Speak, and let us hear You clearly, Holy Spirit. Thank You for the prophet, Chuck Pierce, alerting us to what You told him long ago that the enemy was going to try to do through China. Satan is trying to move things out of Your timing. He wants to kill, steal, and destroy, but You want to give us life and that abundantly. We need to wake up and take this seriously! 

We say that the United States of America shall be numbered among the sheep nations. You have been resetting our course and we say, “China and the dragon, shall not remove our future and our hope!” We will take a strong stand against China attempting to steal our nation’s future. Give us scripture to use as a sword of the Spirit, and we will humble ourselves and pray it. We will declare it. We will proclaim it and see the salvation of our God. We will honor Israel and intercede for their peace, too. We will partner with You and see China turned back. We will not become like them, by the grace of God. Save us, Lord and we shall be saved in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We declare Jesus is the chosen King over America. We will have no King, but Jesus!

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 5

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the national situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: Another word linked with this decade is Passover. Some of our prophetic team  was meeting at Glory of Zion at the end of August, and all of a sudden the Spirit of God fell on us. He said, “By Passover of this year, you will be in a real Passover.” We recorded that Word. We looked at it. We wondered what was going to happen with us. We teach on Passover every year and we’ve held huge Passover celebrations for 25 years. But, He was saying, “It’s this Passover that my people will have to understand Passover. They’ll need to move across and understand the power of My blood, because they will experience Passover this year.” 

I kind of had to step back and say, “Well, what in the world is going to happen with that?” So, when I saw this thing coming out of Wuhan, China, I knew right then that this is the Passover where the economic system of the world gets realigned. How we enter into Passover this year as a nation is going to be very important.

“Then Moses called all the elders of Israel and said to them, ‘Go and select lambs for yourselves according to your clans, and kill the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and touch the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you. You shall observe this rite as a statute for you and for your sons forever.‘” (Exodus 12:21-24; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Get your Bibles out and read Exodus 12. Study the Passover. Notice that Lord says it is an eternal rite. 
  • Consider how you will participate in Passover this year. You may have no knowledge of Passover. It is time to learn.
  • Ask the Lord what He wants you to understand about the Passover celebration. Plan to participate in an online celebration. Here is one and here is another one. (Both are Christian versions, so you will see Christ revealed in the celebration.) See what Passover has to say about Jesus’ death and resurrection. Let the Holy Spirit teach you.
  • Take communion and worship Him!

A prayer you can pray:

God, there is definitely something going on this year. It is a very unusual time and we have not been this way before. I am sure the Israelites felt somewhat the same way. They didn’t know their whole life was about to change when Moses showed up on the scene! One day, they were slaving away (literally), and the next they were told to pack up, because God was going to send them to the promised land. They didn’t even know what a Promised land was. Everything they knew, all of their earthly security, even though it was enslavement, was about to be disrupted and uprooted. 

Well, that’s kind of how we feel right now. We didn’t see this coming. We didn’t plan for it. Suddenly, it was just here. Everything is different. We don’t know what’s coming next. We only know life has changed. For some of us, it has permanently changed. So, Lord, You were ahead of us. You told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover as a permanent rite. The Church is grafted in, but somewhere along the way, we decided Passover was a Jewish celebration that doesn’t apply to us. Nothing could be further from the truth! 

We are the ones with the revelation of what it was foreshadowing! We are the ones that can see Christ in the meal and the blood in the shape of a cross over the doors. God, forgive us. May we celebrate the Passover this year with our eyes and hearts wide open. May we share it with our families exactly as in the first Passover—in our homes, unable to go out. Reveal Your Son to us, Father. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We will enter into Passover to see Jesus more clearly this year!

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 4

[Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding coronavirus COVID-19. Go back and read the prior posts on Give Him 15, beginning March 28th, so we can pray these things into the Church and the global situation. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days that you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

DUTCH: God is setting the stage for what is coming. I have been telling people that this is not just for America. I know that what God is doing here is not just for here. I run with people like you, Chuck, who are called primarily to the nations. So, I know that what God is doing in America is directly linked in His heart and mind with what is happening in the nations of the earth. And, what is on His mind is the harvest. We can’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. We can’t get so focused on this crisis, that we, as Believers, are not able to step back and ask what God is doing in His big picture.

CHUCK: Well, all you have to do is look at statistics and see we have had a lot worse crisis in the past. We’ve had a lot worse flus. We’ve had a lot worse issues. I think the thing about this is the unknown capability of it. It is not knowing how it will progress that is changing the course of the world. God is taking this and causing nations to re-evaluate how they operate. 

Let’s talk about the nations. You always have such a good understanding of what God is doing in the nation and I have always gone to the nations. I have been called to many, but to a few of them especially, like to China and Russia. I have a lot of background and history of what’s happening there. 

Last year in September at Rosh Hashanah, I was looking at what 80 is about. 80 is about our voice. It’s about breath. Look at what the crisis is over—voice and breath. It’s happening worldwide. How will the voice and the breath of God enter into nations? 

I have a long history of praying for China. I have already been there 3 times this year, meeting with various leaders who help the Church advance in China. In 1986, the Lord showed me China in 10-year increments. He said something then that has never left me, “Starting in 2020, China makes its biggest move toward economic domination worldwide.” A watchman would then start watching China in September 2019. How are they going to make that economic move? 

“One is calling to me from Seir, ‘Watchman, what time of the night? Watchman, what time of the night?’ The watchman says: ‘Morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; come back again.’” (Isaiah 21:11-12; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Consider the wisdom of God. Ponder this: His ways are not our ways; His ways are higher than ours. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:6)
  • God wants us to watch. He wants us to see. He wants us to intercede. Choose to be the one standing on the wall, jumping in the gap. Inquire of the Lord.
  • Shut all media down today and worship for an hour or two. Put on your favorite instrumental worship music, get your Bible, sit still, and listen. 
  • Say what you hear or what the Lord shows you. 
  • Intercede for the U.S. economy and how it is related to other nations of the earth.
  • Intercede for the economic relationship between the U.S. and China.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, You are wisdom. You are the author of knowledge and understanding. You have placed things in the earth designed for us to discover and to search out. We must process things we are pondering with Your Holy Spirit, or the enemy will take the knowledge and twist it and use it for his own destructive ends. Lead us, Lord, and teach us. We will inquire of You. We will watch. We will pray. We will proclaim what You put in our hearts and mouth to declare, even when we don’t understand and can’t comprehend. Lord, we will set time apart for You in this quiet season. We will find the time to shut ourselves in with You, because we are in unique days. We have not been this way before. We want to know what things are shifting in the earth. We want to know You more, hear Your voice, see what You want us to see in Your Word, and declare what You want us to declare. 

We are in a global economy and the economies of nations are shaking. Everything has gone into lockdown and whole industries are suffering. Some may never recover. Some will not look the same. Look how quickly something beginning in one country has affected the whole earth. Look how quickly the governments of the earth moved to protect the people’s lives, but look at what has happened to their livelihoods. What is China’s role in all of this? Show us how to pray for our economic relationship with  China. What will it look like on the other side, Lord? How shall we pray? How shall we position ourselves to make it through? How do we position ourselves to reap the harvest? We look to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the watchmen arise. Watch and pray, see and understand what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
