When God tells us something prophetically, we will usually be talking about it when it isn’t popular, mostly because people believe the prophecy will never happen, but we know that God speaks prophetically to His people.
“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets.”
Dutch Sheets shared a prophetic word for 2019 telling us to prepare for victory! Be encouraged by this word.
“Prepare for Victory! 2019 will Bring a Great Surge of Power and Momentum.”
I believe 2017-2018 will go down in history as “turning point years” for America. Certainly, there have been other crossroad seasons in our nation’s 240 years of existence: but these two years have been epochal. The exposing of the Deep State, certainly not complete but at least begun; the confrontation and interruption under the leadership of President Trump of the left’s mad dash to globalism, secularism and amoralism; halting the suicidal weakening of our military; the determination of millions of Americans to recapture our roots and our destiny; and the beginning of shifting control of America from government back to the people starting with the courts. All these events have made this season pivotal.
A Prophetic Warning from Jefferson
America’s judicial system has long been its Achilles heel. This shift alone could be instrumental in saving America. Thomas Jefferson warned of the dangers of an out-of-control judicial branch 200 years ago!
“The Constitution is a mere thing of wax in the hands’ judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please. It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also…” (A letter to Judge Spencer Roane, 1819).
“You seem to consider the judges as ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions, a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy…The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves…”
Jefferson’s warnings proved to be prophetic. A despot is a tyrant or oppressor with absolute, unlimited power. This certainly describes what has happened in our judiciary. Many left-leaning judges in America are trying to rule over and change our nation with their usurping and unconstitutional decrees.
Mercifully, the turning of the judiciary has begun. Thank God for the tenacity of President Trump and the Republican-led Senate in this regard. The curse is being reversed.
Awakening and Reformation
America also entered a “new era” of spiritual awakening and reformation in 2017-2018. When speaking of these two spiritual breakthroughs, I always make a distinction between them; it is possible to have one without the other. When the Great Commission of Mark 16:15-18 is being fulfilled with great momentum—salvations, deliverances, healings, Holy Spirit baptisms, etc., we consider this an awakening or revival, as this saves, transforms and restores individuals.
On the other hand, when Matthew’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) is accomplished, discipling nations according to the teachings of Christ—this is reformation which saves, transforms and restores regions and nations.
In the Charismatic Movement of the 60s and 70s, millions were saved, healed and baptized in the Holy Spirit (awakening). YET, there was no discipling of our society and nation (reformation). The result of this failure, ironically, was a gain in salvations but a loss in Kingdom influence (the honoring of God and His ways declined in society). We actually regressed spiritually in every aspect of American life. It has always amazed me that a nation could experience one of the greatest outpourings of Holy Spirit in history, yet when all was said and done, we lost ground spiritually!
Thankfully, another great awakening has begun in America. And I have great hope that the coming season of revival will produce far different results. There are a growing number of Christians who believe the Church is Christ’s Kingdom government (Ekklesia) on Earth and, as such, has both the assignment AND ability to disciple nations according to His commission in Matthew’s Gospel.
Influencing the Seven Mountains
This current emphasis by Holy Spirit on influencing the 7 mountains of society (Family, Religion, Arts and Entertainment, Government, Business, Education and Media) is an example. This teaching first taught in the 70s by Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ and Loren Cunningham of Youth With A Mission, did not gain any real momentum at the time. Believers simply did not have the faith or frankly, the theology necessary to embrace such a radical concept. Thankfully, this has changed, and many now embrace the teaching.
The importance of this understanding cannot be exaggerated. It will fully restore America’s purpose and destiny, not only as an international voice of the Gospel (Mark’s commission), but also as a discipling light to the nations (Matthew’s commission).
As we enter 2019, prepare yourself for an even greater surge of spiritual power and momentum. The best days of the Church and of America are not in our past—they are in our future.
Be encouraged…and prepare for victory!
God has set America up to be a light for the Gospel! It is encouraging to hear from the Lord and know that victory is coming! Also, Lana Vawser shared a prophetic word concerning America and that the Lion of Judah is positioned over the United States! Be encouraged by this word!
The Roar of the Lion of Judah
Over the past few days, I have been feeling a sense of urgency over the United States, and an excitement in my spirit that the King of Glory is stepping in (as I released in a previous word). As I have leaned into the Lord to seek His heart concerning this, I had an encounter with the Lord where I saw the Lion of Judah positioned over the United States. He was HUGE. With each one of His paws placed on the four corners of the United States, He was covering the entire nation.
As He was positioned over the nation, He opened His mouth and out came a LOUD roar. It was a roar of Joel 3:16: “The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.”
It was the ROAR of God releasing the FEAR of God across the nation. It was the roar of His authority that decreed: “NOTHING can stand against My power and who I am.”
As this roar of the Lion of Judah was released I saw John 3:16 exploding all around declaring, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
His roar was being released, demonstrating His power and His authority; but the roar of His heart was releasing the sound of the Gospel louder than before. This was happening so that the world would know His great love and His power and a greater unlocking to prepare the nation for a MIGHTY HARVEST of souls.
Swing Wide Ancient Gates!
As I heard the Lord roar loudly, I could also hear the LAUGH of God. It was so loud it shook EVERYTHING. Nothing could stand against the roar and laugh of God. Instantly, I heard the verse declared in the spirit from Psalm 2:4: “He who sits in the heavens laughs…”
As soon as I heard this Scripture the Lord spoke to me:
“Psalm 2:4 and Psalm 24:7-9 are keys right now for the United States. NOTHING will stand against My plans and what I am decreeing and establishing within the United States. I am releasing My laugh of VICTORY over the nation. I am stepping in! I am stepping in! Decree it with Me: The King of Glory is stepping in! I am the One who will have the last laugh, for nothing stands against My plans and purposes! I am Yahweh.” I then heard the Lord roar loudly again, and this time as He roared, I heard the declaration being made in the spirit: “All delays broken! All delays broken, NOW. I decree: ACCELERATE!”
As the Lord roared over the nation, I watched as His power and justice flowed from His mouth. All delays that were attempting to hinder the mighty extension of His Kingdom and plans were suddenly falling. They were suddenly crumbling. They were suddenly coming to nothing.
He spoke again: “Where there has been a battle of delay, in some ways, I now declare: United States, accelerate further into your new day! United States, accelerate further into your new day!“
I could feel it in the atmosphere: the joyful expectation of the power of God being demonstrated in such significant ways across the nation…BREAKING DELAY!
There’s a Breaking Open of the Wells – Releasing Fire and Water!
As the Lord was roaring over the nation, I could hear the loud sound of intercession from the saints, flowing with His ROAR. I heard Him say:
“Many have heard My ROAR. Many have heard the rhythm of My roar and are interceding what My heart is decreeing. It is changing a nation from the inside out. It is changing the nation from the inside out.”
I watched as hard ground was suddenly being broken open by His roar. In the “breaking open,” hidden things were being exposed in greater ways, and the victory and justice of the Lord was being released. There was a mighty move of the Spirit of God breaking chains of the “hidden things” that have been rooted for so long.
These chains in the hidden things had attempted to cause delay in the United States but were now suddenly breaking, and I watched as wells were opening up. These wells were breaking open; but the thing that struck me was this: out of the wells exploded FIRE and WATER!
The Lord spoke again: “IT’S TIME FOR FIRE AND WATER! It’s time for the fire of My presence, My love, My purification, My revival and the waters of My Spirit to cleanse and flood the nation. It’s time for the fire and the water! The time has arrived! The United States will be marked by fire and water! There’s a new day of divine marking and commissioning upon the United States.”
A New Day of Commissioning
The Lord showed me that there is a new day of commissioning upon the United States. There is another threshold that is about to be crossed over, and that is why the Lord is brooding heavily upon His people right now to intercede and to partner with Him to see the birthing of that which He has decreed.
This new day of commissioning upon the United States is about to burst forth, and in this new commissioning, I saw a MIGHTY decree being stamped upon the nation: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! THE NATION THAT CARRIES THE JUSTICE OF THE LORD!”
The Lord then spoke to me again: “There shall be MIGHTY demonstrations of My divine justice upon the nation like never before. The roar of My justice that is being released over the nation is not only breaking delay, but it is releasing divine impartations of My justice into the land by My spoken Word. It is going to be carried in the nation and released into other nations by the decree of My people.
“Many words have been spoken in and over the nation that have decreed injustice. Where words have been used to release injustice, I am now decreeing that the United States of America shall be known as a nation of MY justice as My people continue to rise up, grab hold of what I am saying and decree it. There is a MIGHTY birthing of My justice taking place, and it will not be stopped. It will not be hindered. The roar of My justice is being released, and the world will hear it! The sound of My justice being released will RESOUND!
“As My people seek My heart, hear My voice and align with My roar of justice that is going to be mightily demonstrated, there shall be a tidal wave of My justice that will flow INTO and FROM the nation!”
“As My Roar of Justice is Released There Will Be a Greater Acceleration of Restoration”
As I continued to watch the Lord roaring over the nation, I heard Him say: “There shall be NO MORE delay in greater breakthroughs of restoration! As My roar of justice is released, there will be a greater acceleration of restoration.
“I am drawing lines in the sand over the United States, and I am decreeing: NO MORE! I am breathing acceleration in the restoration that I have decreed over the United States of America.”
As the Lord decreed this, I heard the Chris Tomlin song “Our God” in the spirit, being sung all across the nation by the people of God. It was being sung almost as a “song of the season” over the USA. It was a LOUD victory cry. The time for a greater demonstration of the triumph of God has arrived. In greater demonstrations of His power and outstretched arm, there shall be a MIGHTY TURNAROUND! I encourage you to listen to the song and read the lyrics to agree with the Father what He is declaring over the USA!
