America’s New Birth

In a friend’s vision, John Knox was standing behind me holding up the number 313. Urged by Holy Spirit to look up the number in Strong’s concordance, he found it to be the Greek word for “new birth” or “new beginning.” He then was led to look up the date of the 313th day of the year. It was November 8, 2016, America’s election day!  Our interpretation was: in answer to the prayers of the Church, a great awakening and reformation (a “new birth”) will begin for America on November 8. Amazing.

“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:

  • Ask the Lord to stir up the gifts in your life—dreams, visions, and the interpretations of them. We need these gifts to help us, the Ekklesia, know how to move forward.
  • When you receive a dream or vision, ask Him how to interpret it. Don’t assume you know what it means and don’t use typology to interpret. Like Daniel, inquire of the Lord for the interpretation.
  • Thank the Lord and celebrate that we are in a season of new birth! Suddenly!
  • Pray seriously for the season of transition from Election Day, November 8, to Inauguration Day, January 20th. Transition is a dangerous time in a natural, as well as in a spiritual birth.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I want to dream dreams and see visions that help the Body of Christ to move forward. Please also give me the ability to interpret the dreams and visions I have. Help me know who to share them with and when to share them, so that You can be glorified. Thank you for this dream that Dutch’s friend had. I can see that we are in a very special season of transition in this nation. We are surely in a new birth process! Things are a bit chaotic, but You are answering many years of intercession, suddenly! Keep me in prayer through this season and show me exactly how to intercede until awakening and reformation are in full force. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God is birthing a new thing in America and He wants us to understand this and participate!

Harvest Fields

While I was speaking at Chuck Pierce’s Head of the Year conference October 2016, a trusted prophet and friend had a vision of John Knox standing behind me. Knox was a Scottish clergyman and leader of the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s. In his day, evangelicals in Scotland were routinely burned at the stake and their Bibles incinerated. Knox himself was imprisoned and enslaved for his involvement in the Reformation. Undeterred, he continued his stand, praying every day, “Lord, give me Scotland or I die!”

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.’” (Matthew 9:36-38; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Jesus came for many reasons, not the least of which was for the souls of men. John Knox cried out for souls, even as other revivalists have. Ask the Lord to help you cry out for souls in your generation.
  • Ask the Lord to send workers into the harvest fields. They are white for harvest.
  • Here in America today we don’t really know what it means to be persecuted for our faith. Thank the Lord for the lack of persecution, confess that we have no reason to not share the Gospel.
  • Pray for the persecuted church in other nations.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, give me a heart like John Knox—a passion for souls. Give me the heart of my Jesus to so desire the sheep to know the shepherd that I must cry out for their souls to be saved! Father, send workers into the harvest fields. Lord, send me. Teach me to reap where I have not sown. There is no reason in America for me not to share Your Gospel. We have so much freedom here! Let me reap while there is still time. I pray for the persecuted Church around the world. Strengthen them, Lord. Grace to them. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

The harvest fields are white! The Lord is sending us as workers into the harvest fields!

These Days

Can you feel the shift? Can you tell that something has shifted? The prophets are saying it is the season of breakthrough. If your miracle has not come yet, rest assured in Him that it will. Reach out now for your miracle moment. A nation is shifting. It is not a smooth, easy, miracle road. However, it is a miracle road. Your road may be like that. Those walking the earth with Jesus felt that way, too.

“Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:40; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If you are in need of a miracle and feel any doubt and unbelief, tell the Lord how you feel. He already knows.
  • God does have you on His mind. You are in His plan. Open your heart to Him and worship Him.
  • Thank the Lord for His miracle shifts in America. Intercede for peace in place of chaos.
  • Thank the Lord for His miracle shift in your life. Ask the Lord to give you peace in the midst of your chaos.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, I need a miracle (tell Him what you need. If you are struggling with any doubt and unbelief, tell Him about it.) I thank You that You have a wonderful plan for my life! Oh, Lord, You are worthy of my worship! I praise Your Holy Name! God, You are working miracles all around me! You are working miracles in my nation and turning it around. It doesn’t look the way I expected it to, but it is clear You are at work here. I know You will do the same for me. Thank You, Jesus, that my miracle is on the way! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The day of miracle shifts for the nation and for me has arrived!

The Heartbeat Bill

Ohio legislators passed a bill on Tuesday that would prohibit abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected—sometime between 22 days and 6 weeks. It has been dubbed “The Heartbeat Bill”. Previous bills of this type have been blocked by federal Appeals Courts. However, the time seems right for a bill of this kind. President-elect Trump states he is pro-life, Governor Mike Pence has a very conservative record and Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat is empty on the Supreme Court—a seat Donald Trump will get to fill.

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” (Deuteronomy 30:19; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that OH Governor John Kasich signs the Bill.
  • Intercede for the doors to open just right for this legislation to pass. We need the right judges at the right time at each stage of challenge—and it will be challenged by those that do not understand God’s love of life.
  • Pray Deuteronomy 30:19 over the nation and tell the Lord that we, as a nation, choose LIFE!
  • Ask the Lord for the right Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Scalia.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that Governor Kasich operates in faith and signs the Heartbeat Bill into law. He is pro-life and we stand in the gap that he will not feel afraid of those who are threatening a legal challenge to this bill. We pray Deuteronomy 30:19 back to You, Lord, and we declare that we choose LIFE for the United States of America! We want to see the ending of abortion in our lifetimes. Thank You that you will show Donald Trump the perfect God-chosen candidate for Supreme Court Justice to take the place of Justice Scalia. In Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Heartbeat Bill’s future is secure, as the timing is God’s perfect timing, and the majority of the nation is choosing LIFE!

Recount Chaos

Keep praying over the recount effort by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Michigan has tossed the process, as a federal judge said Jill Stein’s garnering of less than 1% of the vote in MI disqualifies her from requesting a recount there. It can’t benefit her. She has appealed a recount in Pennsylvania to a federal court and that is awaiting the court’s decision after she failed to raise the $1 million dollars bond money needed for a recount there. Wisconsin is continuing its recount and costing the taxpayers there many thousands of dollars. So far, the WI recount has resulted in a loss of 20 votes each to Clinton and Trump, and no difference to Stein.

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord that He is completely in control of this national shift. He started it and He will bring it through to conclusion.
  • Take authority over a spirit of chaos and confusion to delay or disrupt the Electoral College vote.
  • Ask the Lord to stop any recount that is unethical, uncalled for or illegal.
  • Intercede that Jill Stein’s campaign will be fully responsible for all costs related to the recounts she requested, so that the taxpayers’ money is not squandered.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we know You see this mess to attempt to abort the Electoral College vote. We thank You that You are never out of control. Your Holy Spirit leads Your people to pray and act to keep Your plan on track. You are turning a nation around! We take authority over spirits causing chaos and confusion. We ask for a supernatural stopping of every recount process that is not valid. We ask that all finances stolen from the people through false recount requests will have to be returned to state coffers by Jill Stein’s campaign, and she will make no profit through any of this effort. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Recount requests will not delay the Electoral College vote, and any false effort to do so will be fully refunded and apologized for.

“Faithless Electors”

“Recently, we warned against ‘faithless electors’ who might try to disrupt the will of the states by casting their vote against the results of the election. Now this is actually happening!  There are already seven faithless electors that I could find.  They are part of a group being calling the ‘Hamilton Electors’.   They call themselves such as they believe that they are doing what the founding father, Alexander Hamilton, meant in the design of the Electoral College.  Colorado is leading the way in this.” (Cindy Jacobs)1

“Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.” (2 Corinthians 4:2; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Pray that these Hamilton electors, who are faithless electors, will not be able to change the will of the states who have voted and its electorate and, thus, change the outcome of the election.
  • Intercede that the Electoral College will stay intact and allow each of the 50 states a voice in who represents them as president and vice-president.
  • Ask the Lord for future Electoral College members who are men and women of prayer and who are knowledgeable and experienced in governmental matters.
  • Take authority over any anarchy, bribery, and corruption in the Electoral College system.1

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we ask that You change the hearts of the Hamilton electors, who are faithless electors, so that they will be faithful stewards of the votes for their states. We say that the door is shut to changing the outcome of the United States’ elections and the future of the Electoral College is secure. We take authority over spirits of rebellion and anarchy that are trying to rise up in this nation. Lord, begin now to raise up future Electorals among Your people who understand government processes and whom You know will be faithful. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our Electoral College will remain secure and our Electors will be true stewards of the votes entrusted to them for their state.

His Kingdom Priests Arising

Very few recognized Jesus as who He was. Only those whom the Holy Spirit gave “eyes to see” understood. Many in the religious community were looking for someone who looked and acted very different—more like a prophet. Some were looking for a literal king. We are in a similar situation today. Men and women are going to be raised up and thrust into positions of authority in places that God has prepared them for, but many will look and scratch their heads and think, “What is that person doing there?” God has a kingdom purpose and a kingdom mantle for many faithful ones. Get ready to step forward.

“All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us. He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.” (Revelation 1:5b-6; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Kingdom expansion and the great harvest dictate that God will move many suddenly into interesting positions. Are you ready if He should open an unusual door for you? Ask Him if there is anything you need to do to get ready.
  • Pray for each of President-elect Trump’s choices for Cabinet members. Some are unusual choices. You can find out about them here.
  • Appeal to heaven for the rest of the Cabinet positions. Use the keys of the Kingdom to open the doors of the White House to God’s choices and shut the door to the proud and those with their own agendas.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I can feel the wind of the Spirit blowing across the nation in an unusual way. You are elevating Your people into unique positions of authority at this time. I want to be ready, Lord, if a door opens for me unexpectedly. I pray for each member of the new Cabinet, some of whom are unique choices. I appeal to You, Lord over America, that You would make Your choices obvious for the Cabinet seats yet to be filled. Let President-elect Trump not look with natural eyes, but seek Your guidance in His choices. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

God is positioning people for Kingdom expansion and national renewal.

Hope in Him

My prayer is that you will be awakened to hope. Hope is to the heart what seeds are to the earth. Without hope, life is sterile, unfruitful – dreams aren’t conceived and destinies aren’t realized…I have hope and I am dreaming.1

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” (Proverbs 13:12; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Break hopelessness off of God’s people!
  • Cry out to the Lord for a greater measure of hope, for yourself and for the body of Christ.
  • Call for hope to rise up and dreams to be dreamed and destinies to be defined.

A prayer you can pray:

Dear Lord, grant Your people a greater measure of hope! Where I see hope failing, step in and lift us out of despair. Cause faith and hope to rise up together. I command hopelessness to break off of God’s people. Dream again! In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Today’s decree:

I decree that hope will awaken in God’s people!

The Justice River

God does not interpret “justice” as what men feel is the right thing to do. In fact, in the book of Judges it is mentioned twice that “in those days men did what was right in their own eyes.” Our federal judges and Supreme Court Justices must be careful not to act according to political persuasion (or doing what is right in their own eyes). The Supreme Court was originally meant to have very limited power and today it is primarily to decide whether a federal or state law is valid under the United States Constitution. Recent decisions as to how the Constitution is interpreted have led many Believers to feel the Court has become politicized.

“Justice must flow like torrents of water, righteous actions like a stream that never dries up.” (Amos 5:24; NET Bible)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare Amos 5:24 out loud.
  • Declare that the Justices of the United States Supreme Court will remain neutral and will judge according to the Constitution, not according to what they feel the right thing to do is.
  • Intercede for the right SCOTUS Justices and federal judges will be named to the bench by President-elect Donald Trump.
  • Pray regarding that SCOTUS decisions of the past that were not decided appropriately by the Supreme Court – the removal of prayer in school and other false separation of church and state cases, abortion, and gay marriage rights, for example.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up new cases that challenge the decision above to give the Supreme Court a chance to get these decisions right for America.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we pray that justice will flow like torrents of water, righteous actions like a stream that never dries up! We declare that the Justices of the Supreme Court will make their judicial decisions based on the Constitution of the United States of America. There is a reason for that document, Lord. It is our nation’s foundation and it has been violated by Justices making decisions according to their own political persuasion. This has resulted in the removal of You from many areas of society from the removal of prayer in school to the institution of homosexual marriage. Please raise up cases that challenge those ungodly decisions and get our nation’s justice system back on track, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

True justice will flow like a righteous river from our nation’s highest Court!

Choosing the Next Supreme Court Justice

“The gravity of this moment is immense, and I get the sense that the next twenty-four hours we need to be in prayer for President-Elect Trump, VP-Elect Pence, Senate Leader McConnell, Chairman Grassley, other key Senators, and their advisors concerning Scalia’s replacement to the Supreme Court. If we get this nomination right, it will bring a blessing to this Nation for the next 20-30 years, but if we get it wrong, we could literally end up with another Republican liberal/progressive who would be a generational disaster for America. The gravity of that one thought should drive us to our knees in prayer to the only God who can save us!” (Phillip Jauregui)1

“Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.” (Deuteronomy 16:20; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Phillip Jauregui is a judicial expert. He strongly feels we should pray over this issue both today and tomorrow, as the decision about a nominee may be made early next week.
  • Pray for President-Elect Trump, VP-Elect Pence, Senate Leader McConnell, Chairman Grassley, other key Senators, and their advisors concerning Justice Scalia’s replacement to the Supreme Court.
  • Pray that the door to Justice Scalia’s open seat on the Supreme Court would be reserved for God’s choice and shut to everyone else!
  • Pray that true constitutional justice would belong to this nation once again.

A prayer you can pray:

As the Lord reminds you, please pray over this throughout today and tomorrow.  Our Father has brought us this far and He wants us to partner with Him to see His mission accomplished. A choice will likely be made early next week.

“Father God, we partner with You in the name of Jesus and declare that only Your person will take Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court and all others will be stopped! Please bless and give great wisdom to President-Elect Trump, VP-Elect Pence, Leader McConnell, Chairman Grassley, key Senators, and their advisors to select Your Justice.”

Today’s decree:

We use the Isaiah 22:22 Kingdom keys to open the door to God’s choice for Supreme Court nominee  and we shut and lock the door to every other person!
