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.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 3

[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 global situation. Make sure that as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you.]

CHUCK: Prophetic revelation for the year begins at Rosh Hashanah. In 2019, we started looking at the number 80, because in Hebrew, it’s the year 5780. I also started looking at 2020. I could see that it would be important that the two were aligned together. This would be important like never before, because this was going to be the year where the Lord started dividing the nation. He was also going to be looking at each nation and how they were responding to Him. He’s going to say, “This nation is really responding to me, but this one is rejecting Me more than it has ever rejected Me.” I think the Lord has answered your prayers, Dutch. I see this nation responding to Him. 

America is responding to God. Therefore, the division is getting longer and wider, and people can look and clearly see the division between the two factions that are in this nation. Righteousness seems to be rising.

DUTCH: I see exactly that. I have been encouraging people that everything has shifted. In this new era we’re moving into, it has become clear to me that God has raised up a remnant of intercessors. He has raised them to a very high level of maturity. What the maturity in the prayer movement and in the prophetic movement has produced is that we are seeing the nation turn now. 

There were things that took place before now—the Russia controversy and the impeachment process. As unhealthy as that all was for the nation and the President, all of that was drawing this line that has become a clear line of demarcation. People are starting to understand. We have been able to see where Believers stood. Now, we have this whole other segment of the population that is so tired of the direction we’ve been going. They’re ready for change. Some don’t even know what that change needs to be. I don’t even think our president knows what that would look like, even though he’s always trumpeting change. 

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.” (Mark 3:24-26; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord for His wisdom and revelation.
  • Ask the Lord to give You His Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation. We must have an Issachar anointing to understand the time and the season we are in.
  • Do you understand that the Lord is dividing, sifting, and sorting in many arenas right now? You see it, but did you know it was Him?
  • Are you seeing what He needs you to see in the division?
  • Proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are the only wise One. You are the all-sufficient One. You know the end from the beginning. Your Holy Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation can be imparted to those who have made Christ their Lord and Savior. We need the anointing that rested on the tribe of Issachar, who knew the times and epochs. Therefore, we can participate with You more fully and accurately, as You shift us into this new era. One thing we need to see is how You are involved in dividing our nation. You are allowing us to see the division clearly, because America as a nation is primarily choosing You and Your ways. Thank You, Lord. Show us how to intercede into this, so the nation reaps maximum benefit from it and can continue forward. We proclaim Mark 3:24-26 over America, “A kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. A house divided against itself is not able to stand. Satan has risen up against himself and is divided. He cannot stand and is coming to an end!” In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The nation is dividing, so we can clearly see.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 2

[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 post on Give Him 15 on 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: The Lord had to put the world in some Shabbat form. I call it, “A Divine Pause.” That’s how intercession works. God is saying, “We have to get some things in order, so we have a greater strength going forward in days ahead.”

Let me back up and say that last January I asked the Lord what He was saying for 2019. He said, “Plow through.” So, Dutch, you and I gathered in about 26 different places across America to really encourage God’s Kingdom people, His watchmen, intercessors, prophets, and apostles to rise up and start watching in a new way. This was especially for this year we are presently in. For you who don’t know, Dutch made it all the way through that journey until the last meeting. It was a great toll to plow up some things that needed to be plowed up. As we ended that tour, Dutch had to have some sort of rest. That’s what happens when we plow hard. We need to end in rest.

Since we plowed all year, where are we now? Let me tell you about some books that will give you a great understanding of what God is doing. Tim Sheets has a great book on this new era, The New Era of Glory. I encourage you to get it. Dutch has a book that helps us know how to watch and pray, Watchman Prayer. Then Robert Heidler and I wrote a book called, The Triumphant Kingdom. This is about how the apostolic Church is rising up, not the mega-church. 

Let me go back to August of last year when I started hearing what the Lord was saying for this new era. By September, we were entering into this new era of revelation. At Rosh Hashanah, which was in September 2019, you are crossing over into new revelation. This is the first month of the year on the Hebraic calendar, and God’s dearest month of the year, where He calls us to break old cycles. He calls us to enter into what He is announcing for the future.

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord and thank Him for this Divine Pause we are in!
  • Yesterday, we prepared our hearts. Today, ask if there are any other things you need to get in order to move forward in days ahead.
  • Read Hebrews 4. Have you learned to enter His rest? Consider the last era as over, your last assignment finished, and ask for the grace to do so.
  • Ask the Lord to show you what resources you, specifically, need to get prepared for your assignment in the new era.
  • Declare, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!”
  • Decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we worship You! We exalt Your holy Name! Jesus, You are the entire focus of our lives. You are all that we need. You are everything. You have moved our entire nation, saved and unsaved, into a Divine Pause. We have never been this way before, but the prophets are telling us this is a very necessary season of rest. Therefore, we will embrace it. We will enter Your Hebrews 4 rest of God, individually, and corporately. We consider everything we have been doing to be in a holy reset. We may move on in similar assignments, but if we do, they will not be the same. Something will be different. Old cycles are breaking. The familiar is breaking. Habits and addictions are breaking. Things will be seen clearly. Nothing will be quite the same.

Show us what resources each of us needs to help us prepare to move forward. Give us revelation and understanding, wisdom and grace. We will each say, “Old cycles are broken in my life and I am moving into the new!” We decree, “Old cycles are breaking over America! This nation is moving into the new!”

Today’s Decree:

In the “Divine Pause”, we will watch and pray and learn, and get ready to move into the new era.

Conversation With Chuck Pierce About the Coronavirus – Part 1

Recently, I sat down with Chuck Pierce to talk about what God is saying regarding the coronavirus COVID-19. Make sure as you pray through the conversation over the next few days you do not allow fear to enter into your heart, but rather, let faith arise in you. I’m always asking myself in times like this, “What is the enemy trying to do and what does the Lord want to do?” It’s like Joseph said to his brothers, “You meant it for evil, but God had a different purpose for it.” 

I’ve been feeling from the start, as far as God’s part in it, that it’s about the aligning of the nations for what is coming. I am not implying He is doing it. I know it is destructive, but God always has a higher plan than what the enemy has to bring His purposes to pass.

Many of you know by now that Chuck gave a Word some months back pertaining to the coronavirus outbreak. So, here’s some of what he was sensing and hearing. He’s been seeking the Lord and will also be sharing some of what he’s hearing now and going forward. We’re going to share that dialogue between Chuck and I over the next few days. 

CHUCK: In the midst of the trial you (Dutch) have been going through physically, we know you’ll come back stronger than you’ve ever been before. Probably by August of this year, we’ll need your voice more than ever to step through into what God is saying to us. I was saying it before, but now I am seeing it. You’ve known me for years and I’ve lived on a timetable, which is a covenant timetable. I’m always looking for the Hebraic calendar for what’s going on. It’s not really around the calendar dates, but around the feast times, because the Lord always wants us to maintain a harvest mentality. Even in the midst of crisis, He wants us to maintain a harvest mentality, so we can get back into increase. So, that’s the real issue. How will we move back into increase? If we are all thinking that way, we are going to have some great strategies come forth from this time that I’m calling, “a Divine Pause.”

“Then David asked the LORD, ‘Should I chase after this band of raiders? Will I catch them?’ And the LORD told him, ‘Yes, go after them. You will surely recover everything that was taken from you!’” (1 Samuel 30:8; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask the Lord to show you how to prepare your heart for the next 12 days leading up to Passover.
  • Ask Him to strengthen your heart to move through this next few weeks.
  • Ask the Father to reveal to you how you will recover all and enter into the harvest season on the other side of this.
  • Whether you are an intercessor, a prophet, an apostle, or other leader, say, “My voice needs to be heard! Prepare me, Lord.”
  • Declare, “Some great strategies are going to come forth from this ‘Divine Pause’ the Lord has put us in.”
  • Decree, “I will surely recover everything that was taken from me!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, the enemy may have released this pestilence in the earth, but You are causing the Church to take advantage of it. You are going to prepare us for harvest. You are going to cause increase to come to us, individually and nationally. Is there something You would like me to do to get ready? How does my heart look to You? Am I fearful, doubting, or untrusting in any way? Is there any place where my heart is not pure or not wholly Yours? Where is Jesus not fully reigning in my life? Where I am experiencing losses, show me how to recover all and increase. Just like David did, I ask You, “Will I catch the enemy and recover what he has stolen from me and my family?” Tell me what to do and how to overcome. This is a perfect opportunity. Let’s show the unbelievers who you are. Let them see You through my life. Make my voice heard! Let me open my mouth and testify. Reveal those strategies to me during this Divine Pause that I will need to recover loss and enter into increase. With them, I will surely recover everything that was taken from me! Thank You, Jesus, my Provider. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God will show us how to harvest as we embrace His Divine Pause.

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 4

“Every child of God should express praise. Human praise of a holy God is a major theme throughout God’s Word. Praise is expressing to God our appreciation and understanding of His worth. Praise says ‘thank you’ for each aspect of God’s nature. Praise expands our awareness of God’s character. ‘Praise’ comes from a Latin word meaning ‘value’ or ‘prize.’ When we praise God, we proclaim His merit or worth and His value to us here on earth. We find other words related to praise in the Bible, including ‘glory,’ ‘blessing,’ ‘thanksgiving’ and ‘hallelujah’. These should all be ways we express our love for God. 

“The order of the Lord’s Prayer in Luke 11:2 is important, ‘Father . . . hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come.’ First, Jesus praised God, and then He made His request. Praising God puts us in the right frame of mind to begin to declare our needs to a holy Father. With our hands outstretched, we can worship God in such a way that our daily provision can be released. Through worship, we can be assured that our supply will always come to us in a timely manner. Praise and thanksgiving are the opposite of worry. One of our greatest worries is over our needs being met. This is a time to be thankful for all that God is doing in our lives. Be like the one leper who went back and thanked Jesus for his healing. This thankfulness produced not just healing, but wholeness. Be whole!

“There is also a price to pay to enter into praise and worship. There is a cost to this process, and we are faced with a fundamental issue: Will we choose to just enjoy the efforts of others, or will we enter into the sacrifice of praise in a personal way? Furthermore, will we choose to offer this sacrifice in the good times as well as the trials?  We must be willing to embrace these costs to experience the real fruit of our praise.

“There is, perhaps, no stronger weapon of warfare than praise and worship to the Lord. Satan hates our worship to God for many reasons. For one, he is jealous of our worship. He longs to obtain it for himself through whatever means he can. For another, he knows that the weapon of worship is strong and effective.” (Chuck Pierce)

“Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 149:5-9; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Joshua 5 & 6. Praise God! Ask the Lord for the strategy of worship that will dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented you from moving forward in your promise.
  • Read Psalm 34. Praise God for the angels that are encamping around you.
  • Read Psalm 85. Praise God for restoring favor to your land.
  • Read Philippians 4. Thank God for establishing your mind on Him and making you think His thoughts. Realign your thoughts.  
  • Declare that you will capture each thought you have that is contrary to God’s judgment.
  • Read Acts 16:16-34. Praise God and watch your prison doors let go.  Watch salvation come to those around you who are imprisoned.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we praise You! We proclaim that You merit our highest and best praise and worship. Your worth and Your value to us here on earth is not measurable. Your love makes us express our love to You in return. You provide for us. You are our healer. You are our very best friend. You are our peace. You are our way maker. You are our protector. There is nothing we can ever need that You do not give us.

We will praise you in the good times and we will praise You in the challenging ones, such as we are living in now. You will not ever let the enemy triumph over us. He cannot have a drip of our worship. It only belongs to You. We will praise You and dethrone what has seemed invincible and prevented us from moving forward in our promise. We will praise You for angels that are encamping around us. You have posted them there. We will praise You for restoring favor to our land. We will thank You for establishing our minds on You and making us think Your thoughts. Your thoughts and Your ways are higher than ours. We will capture every thought! We will watch You open our prison doors, and we will live free! We will watch salvation come to those around us who are imprisoned, as well. We exalt You most High God! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Let the saints be joyful in glory! This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!

The Church Can Shift the Atmosphere – Part 3

“All throughout God’s Word, we see that God is enthroned in praise. We glorify Him through our worship. That is why praise and worship are essential to experiencing God’s glory. Praise is that element of celebration that can transport us into the throne room of God. Once we are in the throne room at His feet, we need to worship and adore Him. As we worship Him in that intimate place, He begins to reveal His glory to us. God is looking for true worshipers who will worship ‘in spirit and truth’ (John 4:24). And as He finds those worshipers, they are able to experience the reality of heaven, which is God’s glory.

“Worship causes us to move thankfully with our body toward our creator. Praise (or yadah in Hebrew) is to worship God with extended hands. With hands lifted up, we declare the merit of God, and we thank Him for everything He has put in our hands. We find this concept first mentioned in the Bible when Leah conceived her fourth son and named him Judah, meaning praise. When Jacob acknowledged Judah, he extended his highest blessing upon him and declared that even his brothers would praise him. He also declared that Judah (praise) would triumph over all of his enemies with royal authority (the scepter) and legal authority (the lawgiver). The word ‘Judah’ also means to hold out your hand and throw or shoot a stone or an arrow at your enemy. Therefore, we find that praise will be a key weapon of the Spirit of God in our lives in days ahead.” (Chuck Pierce)

“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.” (Psalm 9:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer (by, Chuck Pierce):

  • Read Psalm 130 and Rev. 2:10. Praise God for removing your past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to you. Stand in His Presence and receive an outpouring of His grace.  
  • Let Hope arise in you, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon you, and command all fear to leave you.
  • Read Psalms 131 – 134. 
  • Praise God and let perfect peace manifest in you. Stop striving and leaning on your own understanding concerning your circumstances and allow trust to arise. 
  • Embrace the faithful love of God. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, declare that your soul is a weaned child within you. A weaned child has come to a new place of maturity. 
  • There is no peace until all our enemies are under our feet. Ascend above your enemies and reach the goal of the throne room. Sing, praise, and worship in the presence of the LORD.
  • Receive a new anointing, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. 

A prayer you can pray:

God, I praise You for removing my past and extending abundant grace and forgiveness to me. I stand in Your Presence and receive an outpouring of Your grace. Let Hope arise in me, new and fresh. Let assurance of redemption rest upon me. I command all fear to leave my household. I praise You. Let perfect peace manifest in my life. I want to stop striving and leaning on my own understanding concerning my circumstances. Cause trust in Jesus to arise in me. I embrace Your faithful love. As a weaned child rests against his mother’s breast, I declare that my soul is a weaned child within me. You are causing me to come into a new place of maturity. I will not find peace until all my enemies are under my feet, so let me ascend above every one of my enemies. Let me come boldly to Your throneroom to find grace to help in this time of need. I will sing, praise, and worship in Your presence, Lord. I receive a new anointing as I stand in that holy place, like the oil poured on Aaron’s head and flowing down the hem of his robe. I will need that anointing to show the enemy who I belong to. Then, he must flee! All praise to You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our highest praises to Jesus will cause us to triumph over all of our enemies!
