While praying with a team of Oregon state prayer leaders in the Republican caucus room inside Oregon State Capitol, I was taken into a vision of the many people who came west on the Oregon trail. They came with family, friends, precious belongings and dreams of the beauty that awaited them.
I then saw how along the way, they lost family (children, spouses, parents), friends, precious belongings and even their dreams. What began as hope for a better life became broken hearts and broken dreams.
For those who made it all the way across to Oregon— they entered it with dreadful trauma, loss and pain. I saw them arriving into the state with hopelessness and deep grief. A spirit of death had come upon them. Their tears and trauma poured upon the land. And that spirit came into the state which even today is in the roots and foundation of our state. Overtime that spirit of death has morphed into state identity and then into laws. Spiritual orphans and widows feel drawn here (especially Portland) because the loss and survival mentality calls to them.
Then I saw the spiritual pioneers who have been blazing a trail through, prayer, praise and prophesy. They have been forging a new trail in the spirit realm. They have not relented even though they have yet to see their dream of righteousness and life come to Oregon as it is in Heaven. But they will not let go of their dream and His promise. They’ve stayed and continued to declare life, hope, dreams, identity and a spirit of sonship to come upon the State of Oregon.
They are overcoming death to usher in life— abundant life. This is a new Oregon trail— a spiritual one that has been forged in the heat of battle and strongholds of resistance. But those pioneers, who serve Yahweh, are about to reach their dream, receive their promise and see life restored to Oregon. They will arrive at their destination with dancing and high praise on their lips. They will not wear the trauma of the journey but they will display the joy of having lived in the faithful grip of God’s mercy, grace and love.
A new Oregon trail has been blazed and it is saturated with the glory of God. The pioneers are clothed in His glorious presence and they are OVERCOMERS!
I even see that many who travel to this state to end the life within their womb will encounter God and not go through with their plans but they and the life in their womb will be saved. This state will be marked by LIFE, by HOPE, by SALVATION and it shall be a refuge and a land of promise.
No matter what state or nation you are from— pray with me— this is the heart of God,
“God, we come into agreement with your plans and your original intent for the state of Oregon! It was called and set apart as a place for family, for hopes and dreams to be fulfilled, for sons and daughters to find home and family! FOR ABUNDANT LIFE! Just as the evergreens, throughout this state, remain green year round, so Oregon will yield spiritual blessings year round. A new trail has been blazed that is has ushered in life and refuge for the weary travelers. Uncompromising truth and righteousness will overtake deception and evil. Purity and unity will overcome filth and division. Glory and high praise will mark the state of Oregon to the amazement of the entire nation!”
I hear the sound of a massive pipe organ and how when it is played the sound fills the cathedral. The Lord says that the high praises of his people will cause “His glory to fill the temple!”. Oregon will be like a pipe organ of high praise that will fill the state and resound throughout the nation— even into nations! We will fall on our faces and cry out “Holy, holy, holy are You!”
“Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.” Ezekiel 44:4
We believe and we receive your word for Oregon, Lord! Thank you for your mercy that triumphs over judgement and for seeing your faithful remnant in this state.
We are headed out on a national assignment from the Lord. We will be in Plymouth, Boston and Washington DC from mid-July into August. If you would like to support this trip with a financial gift, you can give at: https://www.inscribeministries.com/contact-us.html
