Doctrines of Demons

Besides the worship of other gods being popular in the United States today, twisted doctrines about Christ form the basis of other false religions here. Designed to look a lot like Christianity, these “doctrines of demons” are seductive, leading men away from Christ, rather than to Him. Promises are made that “tickle men’s ears.” But the fruit is an eternity separated from Jesus, the one that loves us so much!

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8-9; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Come to the Lord weeping and mourning for those lost when they think they are safe. They really believe they will be with Jesus for eternity, but they do not know Him as the one and only Son of God and Savior.
  • This kind of deception is tough to break. Intercede for revelation to come to those whose minds have embraced the enemy’s lies. Command light to penetrate the dark, blind places in their spirit.
  • Bind spirits of false doctrines, those lying religious spirits! Command them to let their captives go free in the name of Jesus!
  • Pray again today that God’s Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to the deceived.
  • And also pray again today that the light of Jesus Christ will permeate their beings and they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free!

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus! You have paid a dear price in laying down Your life for the wicked and the mocking and the deceived. You and only You have shed Your blood, died and have been resurrected from the dead by the Father. You and only You can claim equality with God the Father and Holy Spirit—Holy Trinity. Light, shine in the darkness! Darkness, you cannot overcome the Light! Light of Christ reveal Yourself to those trapped in the darkness. Let them finally see You, know You and love You, the one they thought they knew all along. Salvation, come! Amen!

Today’s decree:

Jesus will deliver those deceived by false doctrines and deliver them into His glorious light and truth and eternal salvation!

The Melting Pot

The United States is a melting pot of people groups. It has always been this way. William Penn and other founders of our nation welcomed the people of the nations to this land. God brings them and we want them. We want them to come here and find Christ. We must be ready! We must be ready to tell them about Jesus and know how to deliver them from demons they have often served all of their lives in other parts of the world. Holy Spirit, draw them! Holy Spirit make us ready!

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.” (Exodus 20:4-5a; ESV)

“Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Let your heart break, for there are vast numbers of souls in this nation that serve other gods. Ask the Lord for the words to pray for them.
  • Bind spirits of false religions. Tell them they must loose their captives in America.
  • Pray that God’s Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to the deceived.
  • Pray that the light of Jesus Christ will permeate their beings and they will know the Truth and the Truth will set them free!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask You to reveal Jesus to those deceived by false religions. We bind spirits of deception. We bind the spirits of false religions that are deceiving many. We say, “You are not welcome in this nation! We lift the veil off this nation. We say, “The Spirit of Truth will invade this nation. The Spirit of the Word of God will invade this nation.” Nothing will stop Him! In the name of Jesus, amen!

Today’s decree:

The Truth, Jesus Christ, will be revealed in greater and greater measure and many blinded by spirits of false religion will be invaded by the Truth!

God is Ready

It doesn’t take a spiritual giant in the faith to see what God is doing right now. We hear of awakening in West Virginia and Kentucky and California and other places. Spontaneous or purposeful, God is moving supernaturally on large numbers of people in transformative ways. The miracles will grow and grow—just watch! You know how I know? Because the miracles and salvations are happening outside the walls of church buildings. God is moving in the streets like He did when Jesus walked the earth.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:18-19; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We are to be “like Christ”, so declare Luke 4:18-19 over yourself the same way Jesus did! Feel Him mantle you with His mantle of authority to walk as He walked.
  • Ask God to pour out His Spirit through you. Ask Him to pour out Holy Spirit in your community. If He is doing it in West Virginia, why not where you are?
  • Walk around your neighborhood and pray for your neighbors. Ask the Lord for opportunities to be a vessel of His outpouring there. Look around and notice things you haven’t noticed before. Greet people you haven’t greeted before. If you see an opportunity to help someone, do it and ask them if you can pray for them when you’re done. Miracles often start this simply!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You are ready to pour out Your Spirit. We believe that the pockets of awakening we have been seeing are firstfruits offerings of what is about to become something broad. The scope of it will be huge! We ask that You tip that bowl right now. Begin to pour out revival. Pour it out through me right here in my neighborhood. Signs, wonders, miracles, radical deliverances. Out there under bridges, in houses, backyards, businesses, family room, home groups, living rooms, family rooms and cars—we’re asking You to come. Come, Lord Jesus, one and Only King. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God is ready to pour out His Spirit in a great outpouring changing us and changing our cities and nation!

The Cry for Awakening

I have been listening to everything I can find on the topics of revival and awakening. I’m priming the pump! I don’t want to just dream of it and pray about it. I want to live it! So, I’m immersing myself in it as often as I can. If not in the prayer room and at corporate events, then by YouTube videos—I’m soaking it up and taking it out into my daily life. I am going to live in an atmosphere of awakening and I will see God pour out His Spirit, change lives and revive this nation!

“O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Determine to set an atmosphere for revival in your home or room or office or car – somewhere where you can soak in the presence of God.
  • Prime the pump and cry out for awakening and revival just like the blind man in Luke 18:38!
  • Remind the Lord of what you have heard Him say about His fresh outpouring in our day!
  • Remind Him of all the sin and corruption and cold-heartedness in our nation and ask Him again for the wind of His Spirit to blow it all away and blow in His life!
  • See that bowl called “Awakening?” Say, “Tip it, Lord! Tip ‘Awakening’!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we have cried out across this nation for awakening and revival. You have promised us many times that You’re going to do this. You’ve shown us through visions, through dreams, through the Word and spoken it to the prophets that You’re coming to revive a nation. You are coming to save us from our sin and compromise and decay and destruction. So Lord, we believe that the bowls are full. You’re ready to tip “Awakening”! You’re ready to pour out Your Spirit. Come, Lord, Jesus, Come!

Today’s decree:

The bowls of Awakening are about to be tipped!

Identificational Repentance

Everlasting God (Olam El) permanently forgives our sin when we repent. Because of the blood of Jesus, He remembers our sin no more! When we repent is as if we never sinned! Daniel showed us that we can take up a position of repentance for the sin of our nation. He will listen to the petition of His saints washed in His blood!

“I prayed to the lord my God and confessed: ‘Oh Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.’” (Dan. 9:4; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for saving you and permanently forgiving your sin.
  • Acknowledge that He is willing to listen to you, His child washed in the blood of Jesus, when you present the sin of your nation to Him.
  • Read the prayer from Daniel 9: 4-19, inserting your city, your state, and the United States of America as the location.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Everlasting Lord, thank you so much that you have removed my sin from me as far as the east is from the west and you remember it no more! It feels so good to be completely forgiven and I desire that others might know this freedom, as well! Thank you that you hear my prayers on behalf of my nation. (Read the prayer from Daniel 9:4-19 to the Lord inserting your city, state and the United States of America as the location.) Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that God has forgiven me completely from my sin and that He hears my intercession on behalf of my city, state and nation today!

Judgement on Shebna

In Isaiah 22 the Lord pronounces judgement on a man named Shebna. He was in charge of serving the royal household, but he had taken special favors for himself in that position, becoming proud and self-serving instead. So, the Lord told him in no uncertain terms that He would replace him with the son of a priest, Eliakim. Eliakim means, “God sets up.” It was to Eliakim that God gave the promise in Isaiah 22:22.

“Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, when he opens no one will shut when he shuts no one will open. I will drive him like a peg in a firm place, and he will become a throne of glory to his father’s house.” (Isaiah 22:22-23; NASB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Decree that all of the “Shebnas” in government positions are dismissed! Ask the Lord to promote the Eliakims!
  • Decree that the above exchanges will shift governmental offices at the Supreme Court, in the federal courts, in the Congress and in the White House, in Cabinet positions and in other government agencies in Washington, D. C.
  • Decree that the shift in personnel by the Lord will break unrighteous, unholy, spiritual and natural alliances that have caused righteous laws to be overthrown and even distorted the God-given statutes in our U. S. Constitution. Call them back into right alignment!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we fire the Shebnas and promote the Eliakims of Isaiah 22 into righteous positions of power. We say that the process now begins that will transform he Supreme Court and the federal benches. We decree “broken” over the unrighteous, unholy alliances of the Congress and the White House and the Courts to try to overthrow righteous laws and the Constitution You gave us! We decree that these alliances must become unraveled and your power is taken away from you! This nation will return to its God-given covenant roots, its true covenant with Almighty God, its true covenant with scripture and with You, Jesus! Amen!

Today’s decree:

I decree that the Shebnas are fired and the Eliakims are hired in government offices today!

Decrees to Close Doors to Evil

We, the Ekklesia, decide what is allowed and what is forbidden in our nation. We open doors and decide what doors to close. We can decree the unraveling of all of the unrighteous covenants that have been entered into in this nation with darkness and death and covenants that have made their way into and empowered government. We can decree the unraveling of unrighteous and evil governmental decrees at the national and local levels and in the courts where unrighteous laws have empowered demonic spirits. We can close the door!

“And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.” (Isaiah 22:22; KJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • We have a nation to turn around! It is time! Are you in? Ask the Holy Spirit to help you press in today.
  • Get out a piece of paper and a pen and write down the decrees the Lord gives you to decree to shut doors in this nation to demonic powers that no man can open. Ask God for at least three. Boldly decree them.
  • Worship the Lord, because He has included you in His plan to save this nation!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for telling us in Isaiah 22:22 that You have given us authority to shut doors that no one can open and open doors that no one can shut. I understand this to be a spiritual opening and shutting done under Your authority alone! Show me at least three things that I can decree today to shut demonic doors to my nation. I want to shut doors to death covenants that have empowered demonic entities and kept this nation from the fullness of Your blessings and the fullness of our national destiny! Hear me decree them in alignment with Your Word, Lord and seal the spiritual doors against the darkness! In Jesus’ name. Amen!

Today’s decree:

We decree the unraveling of unrighteous and evil governmental decrees at the national and local levels and in the courts where unrighteous laws have empowered demonic spirits!

America – Begun in Earnest Prayer

As the nation was birthed and our Constitution being considered, chaos, strife and argument ensued. Benjamin Franklin stepped in and said, “I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth – that God governs in the affairs of men. I therefore beg…that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven…be held…every morning before we proceed to business.” (1)

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.” (Psalms 127:1; New American Standard Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Read Psalms 127:1 back to the Lord. Tell Him how desperately we need Him in our lives, our family’s life and in the governmental affairs of our nation.
  • Thank Him for the governmental leaders of the past that acknowledged their need of His involvement in their governing.
  • Declare that we need Him more today than ever and that we must have His involvement in our government once again.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, thank you that the founders of our nation acknowledged their need of You in governing our fledgling country. Thank you that they humbled themselves in prayer and asked for your divine guidance. They knew they could do not do this without You, Lord. Please speak to our government leaders today and show them how much they need your involvement in leading this nation. Show me how to pray regularly for them to hear You and be led by You, Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the leaders of our government will see their great need of You, Lord, and will seek Your wisdom and knowledge in our nation’s affairs.

Praying for Italy

Saturday, August 27th, has been designated a national day of mourning in Italy. In the early morning hours last Wednesday, a 6.2 magnitude earthquake hit the central part of the country. Many of the towns in the area around Amatrice, about 100 km northeast of Rome, were completely demolished. At least 287 people were killed, nearly 400 were injured and over 2000 are homeless. Noone has been pulled alive from the rubble since Wednesday night and regular aftershocks are hampering rescue efforts. Historical buildings and works of art were also damaged or destroyed.

“‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The residents of Amatrice, Italy, and the surrounding cities need to know how much God loves them today. Ask the Father to help the mourning there to turn to Him for comfort and feel His tangible love for them.
  • The Bible tells us in Romans 12:15 to mourn with those who mourn. It’s okay to weep as you pray.
  • Ask God for angelic assistance for the rescue workers, so that they can find any other survivors today! Command the earth to stand still, so the rescue efforts are successful.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that You would pour Your love and comfort out on the residents of Amatrice and the other towns in Italy that have been devastated by these earthquakes and aftershocks. Holy Spirit, be their Comforter. Help them to turn to You in this time of great need and fear, and find comfort in the depth of Your love for them. May many find You as Savior in this time of trauma. Lord, also, send angels to help, and lead the rescue workers right to where the survivors can be found! We ask these things in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

Today’s decree:

God will comfort those who mourn and find the physically and spiritually lost in Italy today!

Appeal to Heaven!

“From the days of the pilgrims, godly men and women have believed the Almighty was involved in the birth of our nation.” (1) Each group and individual gave glory to God in their season. Only God was seen to give true freedom and those coming to America’s shores worshipped Him for that. When freedom was threatened just prior to the Revolutionary War, the patriots, led by George Washington, grabbed a motto from John Locke and placed it on a flag – “Appeal to Heaven!”

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1; New International Version) “So now, our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his supplications.” (Daniel 9: 17a; New American Standard Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for the freedom He has given us through Christ and that this is a hallmark of this nation.
  • Thank Him for those who first came here carrying His dream in their hearts to see a nation established which honored the Lord.
  • Acknowledge that we must appeal to heaven to see a restoration of that atmosphere of God-fearing freedom in America once again.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, I believe that it was a dream in your heart that established the United States of America. I believe You desired to have a place where your people could be free to worship You, to learn of You and to live a life in alignment with your Word in every aspect of their lives. We want our nation to fulfill the destiny you planned for it. We appeal to heaven that You would put the United States of America back on your track once again and let us be that example of a nation whose God is the Lord. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that this is a nation whose God is the Lord and that God’s dream for America will come to pass!
