God Wins!

Can you feel the shifting of the winds? Can you sense that the season has changed? Something is different. God’s Kingdom is expanding in the midst of chaos. This is what God does. This is what He excels at—surprising the enemy and causing the Kingdom to advance when the enemy least expects it. He is determined to fulfill His promise to His Son and bring to Him the nations of the earth, including the United States of America. God’s zealous for this and we can join Him and ride on the wind of His covenant fulfillment! Let the Church hear what the Spirit is saying to us.

“Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.” (Psalm 9:7; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Exalt Jesus!
  • Decree that the time for the greatest expansion of God’s Kingdom has come!
  • Declare Psalm 9:7.
  • Proclaim that the Father has promised the Son an inheritance of every nation of the earth, including this nation, and the wind of this harvest is in motion!

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we exalt You over this nation and in the nations. We exalt the Name of Jesus. We decree that we have moved into the greatest season of the Church. The best days are not behind us, but in front of us. We are part of an ever-increasing Kingdom that is without end. Our King reigns over all the earth. You asked the Father for the nations of the earth as Your inheritance and He promised You that He would have people from every corner of the earth. The greatest movement, the greatest wind, the greatest harvest the world has ever seen in now gaining momentum! Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that You will show Yourself strong in this nation, but not only in this nation, but in all the nations of the earth—in the Muslim nations and the Hindu nations and other nations where false religions rule, but also in the apostate Christian nations of Europe! You win!

Happy Resurrection Day!

“This Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the promise of eternal salvation.  It is a holy day of reverence and worship; it is a sacred time that fills the spirit of our Nation with the faith of our people. America is a Nation of believers. As families gather in houses of worship across the Nation, we are grateful for the tremendous blessings of this land, our home. We have a beautiful country, an abundant countryside, and an amazing people with a truly bright and wonderful future. From the beginning, America has been a place that has cherished the freedom of worship. That is the promise the first settlers saw in our vast continent—and it is the promise that our bravest warriors have protected for all of our citizens in centuries since, a long time ago. With God’s grace, life always triumphs over death, freedom overcomes oppression, and faith extinguishes fear.  This is the source of our hope—and our confidence in the future.” (President Donald J. Trump, 4/14/17)1

“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.’ After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (Mark 16:6, 14-20; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship God, for He sent His only Son, Jesus, to give life to whomever would receive it!
  • Thank God for a President who will cast political correctness aside and honor Christ for all the world to see.
  • Pray that the Lord will protect President Donald Trump and his family, as they continue to push political correctness back and bring honor to Jesus more and more.
  • Thank the Lord for His blessings to flow into this nation and for His Awakening to expand in America!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, it is Resurrection Day! We are so thankful for your plan of salvation through Your Son, Jesus! Where would we be without You? (Take a few minutes and worship Him.) Thank you that You gave us a President that publicly honors You. You promise to bless the nation that honors You and President Trump is. We ask You to protect him and his family from verbal and physical attacks as He gives acknowledgement to You. We know we will watch a nation grow more bold in their own expressions of faith, as our President leads the way. Lord, let Your blessings flow, let Your Kingdom Come, let Awakening pour like rivers of life through America! Amen!

Today’s decree:

We decree that the favor and blessings of God are falling upon this nation and the rivers of Awakening are increasingly running freely through the land!

Enough Was Finally Enough

For a generation now, liberals, secularists, and humanists, unable to rule by majority vote and/or proper legislation, have illegally legislated from the bench. A simple majority—five unelected men and women (the majority vote)—can rule the lives of 320 million Americans! The results? Our nation has lost her moorings, her morality, and is becoming perilously close to losing her God-given destiny. And so, millions of Americans have prayed. Fervently. Faithfully. Persistently. Finally, enough of them voted. Most Trump supporters, when asked their number one motivation for voting in the recent election said, “The Supreme Court.” They’d had enough. God, in His mercy, gave us a President who agreed to appoint only non-legislating, Constitutionalist Justices to the bench. His first appointment, Neil Gorsuch, sworn in on Monday, April 10, 2017, is the beginning of the strongman’s demise. Trump will appoint 2–3 more Supreme Court Justices…and the curse will finally be broken. Keep praying…and voting.

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord that He responds to the persistent prayers of His Saints.
  • Rejoice that Believers put feet to their prayers, came out and voted in this last election.
  • Praise Him that He is straightening things out in our nation and shifting our Supreme Court.
  • Boldly ask God for more!
  • Pray for President Trump and each of the Supreme Court Justices.

A prayer you can pray:

God, we thank You that You have heard our many years of intercession. You have stirred the sleeping giant, Your Church, awake. We have risen up to say “enough is enough! We have put feet to our faith and voted. The strongman is breaking. The President is keeping his promise. The Court is shifting. Lord, we won’t stop interceding now. We need another conservative, constitutional Justice or two or three. Show us how to pray for our President and the Supreme Court Justices, so that we have righteousness, peace and quiet in the land. (Do this for a while.) Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The strongman over the Supreme Court is shifting and we will enjoy peace and righteousness in the land.

Strongman Over the Nation – Part 2

The influence of this arrogant, mocking spirit ruling the Court can even be seen, at times, in other Supreme Court employees. I’ve watched as numerous groups of people—from 5 to 25 in number—have clustered for various reasons on the public area in front of the Courthouse steps. No big deal, unless it is obvious the group is there to pray! Then the Supreme Court police move over in front of them, “standing guard” with a distrustful and often mocking gaze. The unstated message is clear: You are not wanted here. A few years ago, I recall having the audacity of opening my Bible to read a passage of Scripture while on a prayer walk through the Court. In no uncertain terms, I was told by the police, “You can’t do that!” I recall being told on one occasion by an official Supreme Court tour guide, that one of the carvings depicting Moses holding the 10 Commandments was not that at all. Some ridiculous, made-up explanation was postulated. Anything to keep God out!

“Yet I had planted you a noble vine, a pure and faithful seed. How then have you turned into the degenerate branches of a foreign vine to me?” (Jeremiah 2:21; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • The Constitution and the Rule of Law in this land are based on the Word of God. God established this nation. Pray that there would be a humble acknowledgement of this at the Supreme Court.
  • Pray that the mouth of the Accuser of the Brethren would be shut and that the mocking actions against Christians visiting the Supreme Court will stop.
  • Ask God to raise up historians of the Court that make sure the Justices and staff know the truth about the statues and frescos there. Many of them honor God. Verbally honor Him right now.
  • Forgive those who are persecuting Believers at the Court—but intercede that our 1st Amendment rights will be honored there, of all places!

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we know that You established this nation for Your Will and Purpose. Our Constitution was based in part of the Word of God and honors You. Our Supreme Court from the Justices to the security guards should be respectful of You, but they are not. We declare that the mocking of Christians on Supreme Court grounds will stop. We forgive those who are persecuting Believers at the Court. However, we also ask that our First Amendment rights would be honored there. Cut off every degenerate branch of mockery that has taken root there and restore the noble vine once again. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

God and His people will be welcome in the Supreme Court, from the Bench to the staff and to those in security!

Strongman Over the Nation?

As a leader in the prayer movement for 25 years, I have prayed many times at the Supreme Court. I remember my shock the first time I prayed there, as I sensed the oppressive force of spiritual darkness hovering over the place. I felt as though I was at the headquarters of the “strongman” over our nation (see Mark 3:27). Do the facts support this possibility? This deceived institution mockingly stated that God isn’t allowed in the public square; foolishly, they argued that prayer isn’t permitted in schools; arrogantly, they ruled that marriage isn’t between a man and a woman; and insanely, they ruled that babies can be mercilessly mutilated in their mothers’ wombs. Deception and lunacy such as this cause one to think that perhaps the strongman over America does, indeed, live there. Common sense and loyalty to the Constitution certainly don’t!

“”No one can go into a strong man’s house and steal his property. First he must tie up the strong man. Then he can go through the strong man’s house and steal his property.” (Mark 3:27; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

Identificationally repent on behalf of those that have served on the Supreme Court, as Daniel did in Daniel 9:4-14:

  • Ask God for national forgiveness for prayer being removed from school.
  • Ask Him to forgive the actions of the few on our Supreme Court that decided marriage could be defined as other than between a man and a woman, which is God’s definition.
  • Ask God to forgive our nation’s embracing the decision of the Supreme Court to allow the tearing of babies from their mother’s wombs.

Pray that the current Supreme Court would utilize common sense and the Rule of Law, as defined in the Constitution, as they make their decisions on behalf of the American people.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, forgive the United States for the decisions of a few Supreme Court Justices who decided that You are not welcome in our schools. They went on to determine that it was just fine to tear babies out of their mothers’ wombs. Then, to top it all off, they legislated from the bench that individuals of the same gender can marry. God, forgive them. They truly must not have understood the moral and long-term societal effects of their actions. God, give us Justices that seek You, that respect the Constitution and the Rule of Law. Cast this strongman from the Courts and set America free from their godless actions. In Jesus’ mighty Name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the strongman over the Supreme Court and over the nation is bound, in Jesus’ Name! God is about to shift the Court!

Until the Breakthrough Comes

The Lord is never in a rush, never in a hurry. We often want instant answers to the things we pray for. Sometimes we get miracles—overnight changes when everything works out exactly the way we desired it to! Most of the time, however, we will find ourselves waiting, believing, contending and persevering in faith for the answers to our intercession. Never stop believing! Our prayers for America are being answered—in His perfect time!

“It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people’s minds, Yet, mortals still can’t grasp what God is doing from the beginning of time to the end (of time).” (Ecclesiastes 3:11; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Think back to the times God came through for you and worship Him whether it was instantaneous or took some time.
  • Consider the things on your prayer list now and ask the Lord to grant you grace to not stop praying until you see the answer. Ask for Him to refresh your prayer life, if need be.
  • Now, pray with fresh fervency and eternity in your heart for the things you can see may take time for God to answer.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, You alone see things from before the foundations of time and throughout eternity. This is not possible for me to grasp! However, I want to understand that You will answer my prayers in Your timing as a part of Your eternal plan. When I look back at the things I have prayed for before, I can see that the answers are coming! They will come at exactly the right time! Refire me, Lord! By Your grace, let my intercession be fervent! This nation is shifting! In Jesus’ Name, amen!

Today’s decree:

God is not late in answering our prayers. They will be answered at the exact right time!

Government Cannot Take Our Place

We must not depend on the government to fix our nation, nor place our hope in the next Supreme Court Justice or any other individual. The Church must rise up and become the ekklesia (a legislative assembly or government) of heaven and charge into this next prayer movement believing that if we are faithful to pray, God is faithful to respond. Let’s get on board with His plan to raise up a great surge of prayer this year and turn this nation around.

“Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means rock), and upon this rock I will build my church (ekklesia), and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matthew 16:18; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Look again at the above teaching by Dutch and the scripture verse. Notice that the Lord was saying He was going to build a “legislative assembly” on the rock that was Peter. That’s what the Church is supposed to be. Stop and think about this.
  • Now, stand up “legislators”, and proclaim the Word and the Will of God in your prayers and intercession.
  • Look at news reports today, ask the Lord what to decree and feel a new power in your prayers.
  • Call a friend and ask them to legislate in the heavenlies together with you, for where two or three are gathered in His Name, He is there in the middle of things.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, praying for this nation is about to change! As Your ekklesia rises up and does what You have planned for it to do—legislate in the heavenlies—things in the earth will need to line up with Your will. Justice will prevail, righteousness will no longer be trampled on and evil will not be called good. The things that matter to You will begin to manifest in the natural and the world around us will change and begin to glorify You! Amen.

Today’s decree:

God’s Ekklesia is realizing who they are and prayer is changing!

Congratulating Judge Neil Gorsuch

“It is a great honor to announce the historic confirmation of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch as Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation process was one of the most transparent and accessible in history, and his judicial temperament, exceptional intellect, unparalleled integrity, and record of independence makes him the perfect choice to serve on the Nation’s highest court. As a deep believer in the rule of law, Judge Gorsuch will serve the American people with distinction as he continues to faithfully and vigorously defend our Constitution. Judge Gorsuch will be sworn into office on Monday, April 10, 2017, in two ceremonies. The Chief Justice of the United States will administer the first oath of office in a private ceremony at 9:00 a.m. at the Supreme Court. At 11:00 a.m., Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will administer the second oath of office in a public ceremony at the White House.” (President Donald J. Trump)1

“But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for Justice Neil Gorsuch.
  • Pray for Neil Gorsuch and his wife, Louise. Pray that their marriage would be strong and solid, as he takes on his new role.
  • Intercede for Justice Gorsuch, that the weight of the office will not change his thinking, but that he will remain able to decide cases with wisdom and clarity, honoring the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
  • Ask the Lord to raise up prayer warriors for him, so that the political spirit remains pushed back and his thinking can remain clear.
  • Pray that he would, indeed, be a conservative in the mold of Antonin Scalia.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, I thank You for raising up and placing Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court as the new Associate Justice. I pray that You would strengthen the relationship he enjoys with the wife of his youth, thought he position may be stressful at times. We bind the political spirit and pray that it will not affect Justice Gorsuch’s thinking. Keep his mind and heart clear. May he stay true to his Christian conservative beliefs, honoring the Constitution and the Rule of Law, and may he serve in the footsteps of Justice Antonin Scalia. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that God will watch over Justice Neil Gorsuch to will and to do His good favor.

Different Streams and the Generations Co-Laboring Together – Dream Part 2

“The Lord then spoke and said, ‘Come higher.’ I was immediately taken up to an even higher position and could see that within 200 yards of every new revival trail there was a developed, well-maintained, road upon which were located ‘Freedom Outposts and Apostolic Centers’. I saw the mantles of some of the pioneers that are now a part of the great cloud of witnesses resting at the centers and freedom outposts. I also saw many present-day fathers and mothers of the faith at the outposts and centers. As I looked and considered what Father God was showing me, my heart began to weep because I knew that, presently, we were missing the potential of the synergy of the ages by ‘working separately’ rather than ‘co-laboring together’ in God’s purposes. After I awoke and remembered my dream, I was keenly aware that the son’s decision to take his inheritance to a far country (removed from his father’s wisdom and influence), is what caused the son to lose his inheritance, and eventually lose his way.” (Clay Nash)1

“Then Jesus said, ‘A man had two sons. The younger son said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the property.’ So the father divided his property between his two sons. After a few days, the younger son gathered his possessions and left for a country far away from home.’” (Luke 5:11-13a; GWT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Think about rivers you have seen that run separately, then flow into one greater river.
  • Ask the Lord to make a way for the many independent movements work together for the sake of the nation at this time.
  • Many organizations worry about financial losses, if they don’t stay independent. Intercede that the churches and ministries will all increase, as God honors unity!
  • As they meet together, show the leaders of these movements how to take their greatest strengths and use them to synergize the advancement of the Kingdom in the nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, the revelation above reminds me of a sight I have seen many times flying over the area where the Mississippi and Missouri rivers flow into one another. For nearly forty miles these two rivers flow side-by-side before becoming one river because of different temperatures, current speeds and soil content in water. Lord, make a way for the different streams flow together, new and old, established works and fresh start-ups, combining the various foci—making us all become one!1 Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that the Lord will cause our many movements to flow together as one and that the Kingdom will explode in its advancement, as a result!

From Weary Efforts to a New Day Dawning – Dream Part 1

“In my dream, the Lord caught me up above the USA, and I heard His voice say, ‘Look and consider well what you see.’ As I began to gaze upon the land below, I saw many revival movements blazing trails through unchartered territory, cutting trees, clearing land, and establishing centers. They were naming the moves of God and establishing their cultures in the centers. I could hear the voices of the leaders speaking of accomplishments, and how they were going a way no one had ever been. They spoke of how they had been misunderstood and had to pull away from all that was already established. As I watched their efforts, many became weary and dropped out of the process of establishing. Some centers that had once blazed with bright light began to dim. Soon, I heard painful moans of how they were misunderstood. They hurt severely, anguished by being misunderstood. At this, my heart was troubled. From my position in this dream, facing east, I could see the rising of the sun and a new day beginning. The sun was rich, bright and drawing since I love a good daybreak. For me, it represents another day to accomplish great things for Father God.” (Clay Nash)1

“For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts.” (Malachi 1:11; ESV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Thank the Lord for those He has raised up in every prior generation, who kept the fires burning and proclaimed the Gospel at great cost to themselves.
  • Pray for current leaders in the Body of Christ that they would stay Christ-focused and not let their eyes turn to examine their own Kingdom-building work. Proclaim over them, “Eyes on Christ!”
  • Pray that leaders would not grow weary in well-doing.
  • Pray for a unity of the moves of God, between generations and between streams in the Body of Christ, as all are needed!
  • Pray for at least one leader in the Body of Christ today. Call or write them and tell them you are praying that they will fix their eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith, and asking the Lord that they would not grow weary in well doing.

A prayer you can pray:

“Please Lord, give the seasoned fathers and mothers favor and influence—those who have paid a great price to build what You had them build and gained the wisdom on (in how to bridge this gap between what we are currently doing and what we need to do). Give leaders ‘position and authority’ who can unite us into what can become the movement of movements in our nation!”1 May the Name of Jesus be lifted high by Your leaders, and may the leaders be refreshed as they exalt that wonderful Name above every Name—Jesus! Amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that our Christian leadership would keep focused on Christ, make great the Name of Jesus in all they do, and be refreshed in their service to Him!
