On October 28th, 1886 the Statue of Liberty was dedicated and unveiled by President Grover Cleveland in the New York harbor. Today marks 130 years since this occurred. When the Holy Spirit prompted me to calculate how many years it has been He also said that the amount of years would coincide with the Psalm that He is speaking over our nation this day.
Here are the words from Psalm 130,
“Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.”
The Spirit said to me,
“I have heard the prayers from the hearts and mouths of My people in America. Today I declare over you, ‘America, put your hope in Me, for with Me is unfailing love and I Am full of redemption. I Myself will redeem America from all your sins.'”
God has forgiven our sins, our historic sins and the sins of the present time. He has seen and heard those who have stood in the gap for the sins of our nation and He is declaring that He will redeem us. Mercy is falling upon us!
On the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty is a verse from a sonnet by Emma Lazarus that says,
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
I sense that even the last name of the author of this sonnet is prophetic in nature as the Lord is calling us to life; awakening the heart of our nation to beat again with God’s original intent for our nation. Just as He called out, “Lazarus, come forth.” He is calling out, “America, come forth.”
Recently my husband had a dream in which he saw a massive hand before him and when he went close to the hand it punched him hard in the heart. He awoke with a shout and immediately felt as though it was a dream of God punching a heart that had stopped beating; causing it to beat again.
Lady Liberty’s heart needs to beat again. I keep having revelations of a golden lamp being handed to the church and the last line on the pedestal of where she stands says,
“…I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
May we lift our lamp of the light of the Lord up and welcome the King of Glory into our nation. May we take up the cause of the poor and make our land a resting place for the Lord and all that He carries upon His heart.
“Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory.”
On this day, October 28th, 2016 we re-dedicate our nation to be a light and lamp unto the nations and to be a resting place for the King of Glory. We welcome You, King of Glory, into the gateways of our nation. We lift up our heads to welcome you. We bow before you in honor and reverence. Call to us, like Lazarus, to live again. Revive us, heal us and redeem us. May our heart beat again and may we carry the lamp of first love.
May we make the name of the Lord great again in America!
