As believers across the world pray for the citizens of nations like Afghanistan, Cuba, Lebanon and other nations where tyranny rules, I felt to remind you to pray not only for the righteous but also for the wicked. Truly, the wicked are in a place of eternal risk. If the wicked will turn, then the righteous and the innocent in the land are set free as well.
Today let us pray for “the wicked” out of Isaiah 55:6-7,
“Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously.” God, today we come together in prayer and supplication on behalf of those who are doing wrong, especially leaders of nations and their followers who have been deceived. We plead on their behalf that they will “change their ways and banish the VERY THOUGHT of doing wrong.” We intercede on their behalf that they will turn to the Lord so that you can have mercy on them and be gracious to them. We cry out to them, “Turn to God while he can be found by you— he will save and forgive you! He will heal you and heal your land!”
Please share this so that we can mark today as a day that the body of Christ globally agreed in prayer for the turning of the wicked from evil to good, from tyranny to their Savior, who sets men free!
My family and I would like to take a moment to send you a Christmas prayer and blessing. It is such a joy to walk with all of my followers, partners and friends.
This year the whole world around us has changed. This has been a year of deep sorrows for many but also great joy as the hope of Jesus becomes a far greater reality to each of us. Our eyes have been lifted higher to behold our King.
We send this prayer from our hearts and our home to yours…
We pray that the everlasting joy and love of God would fill your hearts and your home to a measure that you have never known before. May our Savior and Deliverer, who was born in a manger, find a home in your heart that becomes a resting place for His glory and presence. May the gift of grace, mercy and everlasting faithfulness— that He secured for you— overflow upon everything that pertains to you and everyone that your heart holds dear. May your hope never fade, your faith never lack and your joy be bountiful.
Thank you to all who have so generously stood with us through 2020. We have heard so many testimonies of miraculous provisions as you gave sacrificially. His faithfulness is never ending. Our hearts have been blessed by your notes, your gifts and your faith in Jesus.
As Christmas is a time of giving— just as the Father gave us His only son— we want to give you another opportunity to give back. If you would like to give a Christmas gift to support this ministry, we will add our link below.
The verse from Luke 6:38 is a gift from God that is always added to those who give!
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
We have witnessed the truth of this verse in our lives over and over throughout the years. The greatest joy at Christmas is the gift of giving— it is one of our favorite things to do! It seems to be one of God’s favorite things as well— He never stops giving good and perfect gifts to His kids.
Merry Christmas to each of you! May His light brighten every shadow, His promises bring you hope and His love give you unspeakable joy.
December 1st was such a significant day in prayer for America. The dawn of this new month, the 12th and final month of 2020, was ushered in by the nations gathering in prayer to stand with us, decree with us and see the will of the Lord established in our nation. I had the honor of being a part of the panel on this online global prayer gathering.
During our time of worship I kept seeing our nation going through a rebirth. As I was seeing this, one of the prayer leaders from the UK sent a text saying that she was seeing the final stages of a birthing (after a hard labor) and that the nations were the midwives for this birthing of America. This was confirmation of what I had been seeing but I knew that there was still something more.
As we continued in worship I received another message from a brother in Canada. It was a long message that I wasn’t able to read but within it’s context I saw the words, “…the US is a Joseph nation…” The moment my eyes saw those words I went into a vision regarding our nation. In this vision i saw America like young Joseph, who had been given the coat of many colors. His joy and even his confidence was in the coat or “this mantel given” to him (the call). Then I saw Joseph (who represented America in this vision) lay the coat of many colors down at the feet of Jesus. He bowed before him in humility and repented for putting his confidence in the gift rather than in the Lord alone. In this vision, as soon as he laid down the gift that the Father had given him at the feet of Jesus, the rebirth took place. This time I saw it resembled the birth of our Savior, born in humility; a humble King. The authority was never to come from the gift or the call but from humbling ourselves before our true King. The Father had given America a gift that was to be laid at the feet of His dear Son.
Together, during the global gathering (on the morning of December 1st), together, this Joseph nation called America, laid down the coat of many colors at the feet of our King, and we were rebirthed into the posture of humility that Jesus carried when he came to earth. We presented our gift to the true King.
If this bears witness with you, take a moment to join in the prayer that declares, “Today we lay down every source of strength, authority and confidence in anything other than full submission to King Jesus. We receive this rebirth into humble authority that serves rather than controls. We lay the coat of many colors at the feet of Jesus.”
This greatly pleases the heart of the Father, who gave America this coat. Now, like Joseph, we can govern with humble authority and wisdom that restores our fathers, our brothers and the nations of the world.
December is a month to bring gifts to the King! Jesus is the One who hung upon a tree to fulfill why He came to earth. In this month where we hang ornaments upon a tree and place gifts under it; let us bring our greatest gifts and put them at the feet of the One who gave his all. As a nation (and the nations of the world), may we bring all that has been given to us and offer it as a gift of full surrender and submission to our Savior and King, Jesus.
They sang, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” Revelation 7:12
We begin this 12th month by declaring together that all blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power and strength belong to our God forever and ever!! AMEN!
In this month of giving I believe that the Lord wants to release his promise that comes with giving out of Luke 6:38 upon his people. It is the overflowing and poured out blessing upon those who give. If you desire to give a financial gift to our ministry, go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/
“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” Isaiah 55:11
If you want to plant good seeds that produce a harvest that flourishes in your life— without thorns or thistles— plant the Word in your heart, incorporate it in your prayers and decree it over all that you love!
During the years that my husband and I directed a house of prayer I learned the great value and the “sure fruitfulness” of praying the Word of God. It surely prospers everywhere it is planted! Isaiah 55 goes on to say this,
“You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”” Isaiah 55:12-13
People are looking for answers, they desire prayers of power during this new and unfamiliar era and they are longing for fruitfulness in a world of thorns. His answer is in the seed of His Word! Begin to “eat the Word” for it is the “choicest of foods!” Pray the Word because it is good seed that will bring forth a harvest of peace, joy and fruitfulness everywhere it is planted! His Word will not return void!
The Lord compares it to the rain and snow that falls upon the earth— it saturates the earth causing to germinate and sprout; which provides seed to sow and food to eat (Isaiah 55:10).
His Word is the true food that satisfies the thirst of mankind— it is water to the soul and seed to the sower. It is the seed that prospers wherever it is planted.
Do you have an area of your life that has been barren or producing thorns? Then sow the seed of His Word into that barren ground and watch it prosper and bear a bountiful harvest. His word prepares the ground, it gives the seed, it waters the seed (causing it to germinate) and it prospers everything that it touches..
Today is a day to begin to plant the Word in your life, your family, your business, your city and your nation! This is the wisdom of the Lord that is undisputed! Pray it aloud and decree it over your family, your job and your ministry. It is the key to your turnaround.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” Isaiah 55:8
We have launched a #givingtuesday2020 fundraiser! You can help us finish the year well by sowing into our fundraiser.
2020 has been a life-changing year for us. We believe that the greatest work of the Ecclesia is only just beginning. We are working tirelessly to see our nation and the nations of the world turn to Jesus. Please stand with us in prayer and financial support as we go into the new year.
November 11 will be the 400 year anniversary of when the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth. This is a significant moment for our nation— especially as we are in the midst of such a battle to secure our Godly heritage.
The Bible is clear that God considers 400 years a spiritually significant time period. Whenever God wanted to prepare a nation for His purposes, He took 400 years.
We believe that our nation is in a completion of preparation and a fullness of time spiritually to walk in His purposes. We sense that God is asking for leaders of intercession in our nation to gather in Plymouth on this 400-year anniversary. Together we will pray, decree and establish His steps ahead.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO TAKE THIS JOURNEY TO YOUR PLYMOUTH!
Will you stand with us in prayer and by giving financial support to get us there? We have a 24-hour window to raise $1000 for travel, lodging and food. God provides for what He asks His people to do. Therefore, we know that if we are called to be there— He will provide.
If you feel to sow into this divine appointment to gather and pray in this historic place on this significant day then click on the link below.
I have waited to share this but now feel that it is time to do so. I had a dream that I need to share:
In the dream there were many young girls (all around the age of 18) being raised in what looked like a Roman style outdoor courtyard; yet I knew it was in America. It reminded me of Esther and the young women being prepared to meet the king. In the dream, I was one of the young women and I felt that I represented our nation. As we were in the courtyard together I saw the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, walk into it and take a seat. I wondered why he was in America and why he was watching us but decided to go about my business. After a while of him watching us young girls, he stood up and walked toward me. I felt repulsed by him as he approached. But then he handed me a small gift wrapped in white tissue paper. I reluctantly received it and unwrapped the gift. Wrapped in the tissue paper was many loose gold bracelet charms (many were letters or initials…yet not one was my initial). When I looked upon them something came over me that caused me to see him differently. Before opening the charms I was uninterested in him or his presence among us but after opening the gift I found myself fixated on him. It was as if the gift had a seducing spirit that suddenly “bewitched” me. I tried to shake it off (even dropping the charms and losing some but I retrieved most of them). He returned to his seat and patiently began watching from afar again. This went on for some time and each time I looked at him, his eyes were following my every move and I was more and more drawn to him even though it caused me shame to feel this draw. Then, once again he left his seat and began coming toward me. As he approached I somehow knew that he planned to kiss me. I also knew that to receive the kiss meant I would have to leave my Christian roots and I would be totally taken in by him (just like a king would pick his queen). Somehow I also understood that we would immediately conceive a son if I gave myself to him and I would never be free again. Yet, an unnatural draw and attraction to yield to him was overcoming all reason. The “spell” that I was under was too strong to resist and when he finally approached me, he kissed me and I knew I could not turn back.
END OF DREAM
I believe that this dream was revealing a true spirit of communism that has come into our land and is trying to seduce and bewitch the younger generation and those who will lead in the years ahead. The “charms” offered had a lustful and seductive spirit upon them that entice them to partner and join themselves to something unnatural and that causes them to leave their Christian roots and all that they have been set aside for (an Esther/Mordecai generation). This spirit is too strong for them to resist without the Ecclesia fathers and mothers intervening in prayers that bind this spirit and loose the spirit of truth.
In the dream, I was the young girl that represented America and I believe that the other young girls were other nations that would follow. It had to be me because I needed to experience the power of this spirit and how it controls many— even against their own natural resistance. I believe that many are experiencing this seducing and bewitching spirit that is causing them to leave what they know is right and good for something that they don’t have the power or self-control to overcome. Lust is at the core of it.
I have been interceding for many days since this dream occurred because it feels as though, as we approach the November 3rd election, that this spirit that resided in Kim Jong-un (in my dream) has stood up and is walking toward our nation to see if it will receive the kiss of communism. The church has authority to pull this down and we are doing so but we also must understand what we are dealing with.
It is interesting that I have been meditating on the verse from Psalm 85:10,
“Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed!”
This is the kiss that our nation is to receive but the enemy is approaching with a seducing kiss that will bring forth lust, deception, unrighteousness and war. I believe that God gave me this dream because we can pray and break the power of this bewitching spirit and declare God’s unfailing love, His truth, His righteousness and His peace. I believe that we can set our nation free from the “charms” of this false king who wants to rule over our children and their children. It is the root of communism!
I strongly encourage you to release your voice in prayer— that the fear of the Lord would overcome this assignment of lust and deception. Pray over the youth of America. Declare His truth and deliverance over our inheritance (our children) and bind the seducing spirit behind the enemy’s charms that cause them to choose their identity (remember the many initials within all the golden charms) and reject God’s design for their lives. Purity is upon this generation and that is why such a strong spirit of lust is behind this.
Pray Psalm 85 over our nation, over the youth, over the lost.
“Lord, you poured out blessings on your land! You restored the fortunes of Israel. You forgave the guilt of your people— yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude You held back your fury. You kept back your blazing anger. Now restore us again, O God of our salvation. Put aside your anger against us once more. Will you be angry with us always? Will you prolong your wrath to all generations? Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation. I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory. Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed! Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven. Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest. Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps.” Psalms 85:1-13
Recently, during a time of intercession, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Kathi, do you know what the enemy hates most of all? He hates my image in every created person.”
Instantly I understood why we are witnessing the depth of depravity regarding identity, gender, and sexuality that we see today. Last week’s Democratic National Convention featured a panel that hosted an individual who claims to be a “Black-Vietnamese, transgender nonbinary/gender transcendent mermaid Queen-King.” The attack against our children and our children’s children, regarding identity and the image of God that they were created to display, is beyond anything that we could have ever imagined in years past. If someone would have suggested that a political party would have hosted a panelist that claimed to be a “mermaid Queen-King” we would have shaken our heads and said, “That will never happen!” And yet it is happening.
What was yesterday’s insanity is today’s celebrated norm. The confusion and delusion is truly mind boggling. In saying this, there is no hate or lack of compassion for those who have been caught in this great deception because if Jesus were here waking the earth, these are the ones He would have dined with and told stories to that would have brought them to salvation. Oh, how He loves all who He has created; and we must do the same.
My point in bringing up this level of confusion regarding identity, gender, and sexuality is to point out that the enemy absolutely hates to have to look upon the image of God within you and me and our children. He wants to wipe it out; make it so distorted and diluted that God’s image within mankind is unrecognizable.
It is the greatest mockery of God’s creation. This mockery and perversion of true identity is a slap in the face of our crucified Savior. It is not only a great wound piercing the heart of Jesus but it is heart-breaking and heart-wrenching to every Christian parent that has loved their their precious son or daughter, dedicated them to Christ, sung over them lullabies of Jesus’ love, and raised them in the truths of the Word, only to see them caught in the trap of this great deception.
How do I know this? Because one of my beautiful children has been caught in this deception. All our other children and their spouses love the Lord with all of their hearts, but this one precious child has been stolen and is trapped in a life that is destroying the beauty of the image of God that she was created in. As a parent, who loved and nurtured such a beautiful creation, I find my heart so deeply grieved for such a waste of beauty and identity— I grieve for the loss of all of the plans that the Lord has for her life that are not being lived out.
But this article is not about my child but about “our children and our children’s children!” This may be one of the greatest attacks on mankind ever played out. So, what can we do?
Jesus is the great Intercessor and we must join Him as intercessors. When I hear a believer say that he or she is not a “great intercessor” (as if that were a calling such as a pastor, teacher or apostle) I immediately think, “Well, it’s time to become one!” We are all to have prayer and intercession be nurtured in our lives in the same way we nurture our lives with the Word of God. I’ve never heard a true Christian say, “I’m not a follower of the Bible.” We all know and understand that the Word of God is our lamp that lights our path; that is undisputed. So, why do we label some people “intercessors” and some not? If we want to see the image of God in our children and in the generation that is being born today, then we must join Jesus in His intercession for them!
“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” Romans 8:34
Rather than condemn, we must begin to intercede! We must allow our private times with the Lord and even our corporate times together to become times that we enter into His intercession. In 2016 I was involved in a time of corporate intercession, along with ten thousand other believers from all across the world, as we entered into the intercession of Jesus for the US elections. There was no mention of a particular candidate, but rather a crying out for His will to be done. I watched as thousands of Chinese men and women rushed to the front of this convention center in Jerusalem to “push” in prayer. It wasn’t even their nation being prayed for but they entered into the intercession of Jesus with groaning too deep for words.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26
The “wordless groans” were so deep and pure. They were bringing heaven to earth. The next day most of us were completely shocked by the election results— to this day I believe it was birthed in intercession by the nations of the world who entered into the intercession of Christ.
What if we began to do this for our children; for the preservation and revelation of “the image of God” that is within them? What if rather than another conference we gathered to intercede? If we grabbed the horns of the altar and did not let go until we saw the breakthrough?
“Adonijah was afraid of Solomon, so he rushed to the sacred tent and grabbed on to the horns of the altar.” 1 Kings 1:50
In the Old Testiment, Adonijah had sinned greatly and he knew to run to the altar and plead for mercy— and he received it and his life was spared.
Stephen S. Gibney writes this about the altar with the horns, “The altar has two meanings: the first meaning was that the altar symbolized the cross of Christ (Heb 13:10) and the second is that the altar symbolized fiery prayer (Lev. 6:13). One man said that, ‘Altars were places where the divine and human worlds interacted. Altars were places of exchange, communication, and influence. God responded actively to altar activity.’”
Rather than shaking our heads at the narrative regarding identity and gender in the world today, isn’t it time for us to go before the cross of Christ in fiery prayer and watch the divine world and the human world interact until we see a breakthrough?
This is a battle fought in heavenly places. What is being played out on earth is not fought on earth but in the place of intercession— the intercession of Jesus. If conferences and corporate gatherings were to become prayer meeting where we took hold of the horns on the altar and cried out for mercy, we could see our children saved from having their identity robbed and the image of God mocked.
Isn’t it time?

I am writing this in the middle of the night so that I do not forget the dreams that I just had or the message I received through them.
In the first dream I was taken over the earth where in the spiritual atmosphere of the second heavens there was a timeline that looked like individual “film stills” (photos) that were setting in place for future events. These scenes and pictures appeared to be securely set in and unchangable as they were going before “real time on earth.” They seemed to prophesy from the demonic realm— like the enemy was producing a movie that was being played out on earth ahead of time. It was his narrative and his script for what lies ahead.
Then, as I looked upon this furture timeline (which included catastrophic events, upheaval and hopelessness) I suddenly saw smoke coming from the earth that was from a huge golden incense jar. This wasn’t like the smoke that billows from a fire with dark plumes of black, but it was a steady stream of colorful smoke that danced like a gentle river as it ascending toward heaven. When this incense touched this future timeline that was being set in place (produced), the photos of “what was coming” began to melt away. They were being pulled out of what has appeared “set and secured” for our future and melting as this incense touched it, causing the scenes to disappear. Then I saw before my eyes the words, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.
As I woke up I heard the Spirit of the Lord repeating over and over, “Pray, it changes things! Pray, pray, pray!” I saw once again how prayer creates an incense that interrupts the enemy’s plan and script to make an opening in the heavens for God’s will and plans to come to earth. It is when God’s people pray that times and seasons align with the will of God. It makes a way for “On earth as it is in Heaven.”
The enemy always has a different script that wants to usurp God’s ways, plans and timeline. His brings hopelessness that gives the message that “no change is available” but God is inviting us to pray like never before because the prayers of the saints will melt away the plans of the evil one and open up a way for the plans of the Lord to be done on earth in His way and His timing. God’s ways always bring hope and promise; even in the midst of judgement. Mercy remains present!
The second dream that I had was of a constant sound that was over the earth at this time. This was a demonic sound that was repeating phrases over and over that were brainwashing the people of the earth. They spoke evil things and called them good and then called good things evil. I heard phrases like, “Communism is good.”, “Marxism is good.” along with many other phrases. It had a seductive spirit that caused even some of God’s elect to begin to believe this message. In this dream the “spiritual soundtrack” of these messages was constant and subliminal. I remember at one point in the dream being allowed to feel the alluring that it was releasing upon people’s minds so that they would begin to believe the unimaginable. It was like a drug that altered minds.
Though I was not shown a solution in this dream (only the condition of what was happening) I woke up wanting to trumpet the Word of God like a shofar into the atmosphere. I longed to get my Bible out and begin to pray and decree His infallible Word. I wanted to shout the good news of the gospel of Christ and His truths as written in the scriptures.
I believe that in these two dreams there are two clear messages:
• Prayer releases an incense that cuts through the future plans of the enemy and opens a way for “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
• The sound of the Living Word that is found in the written Word will overcome the sound that is redefining what is evil as good and what is good as evil. Release His sound of truth!
Please take the strategies that the Lord is releasing in this hour and put them into action. This is not merely a time to say, “Amen” but to put into practice prayer and the declarations of His written Word that is alive! Pray the Word, pray in the Spirit, pray for His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Join the intercession of Jesus.
We must not be passive and begin to sink under the lies that says no change is available. If that was so then why does Jesus intercede? Why did He pray during His time on earth and why did He teach His disciples to pray? It is because, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS! We also know that His Word does not return void— so release His Word!
“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
Thank you for standing with us in prayer and financial support in 2020!
We live in a glorious land filled with rocky mountains, green valleys, rolling hills and blooming deserts.
We have beautiful diversity in our people, places and languages.
We have known the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship and freedom to make personal choices. How blessed we have been.
Our pledge of allegiance declares that we are “One Nation Under God” and our currency reads “In God We Trust”…but America— we have divided our nation from the One we claimed to love.
God has looked for those who will stand in the gap of this great divide to pray– to repent– to turn back and to bow low.
Here we are!
Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for trading— Mercy for mammon Grace for greed Freedom for captivity Trust for tyranny Unity for division And- love for hate.
It is said that “United we stand, divided we fall” We are falling, oh God! We have divided from you and now freedom is falling, liberty is lacking and unity is unseen.
Our divided history has resurfaced, the secret societies have been revealed and the hidden agendas are now exposed for all to see. We are naked, we are cold and we need you!
God have mercy!
Those who still call upon your name, who put their trust in you and who know that you are our only hope now bow down.
We bow down in sorrow, we bow down in worship, we bow down in repentance and we bow down in prayer. We humble ourselves before the you— the great I Am.
Unless the Lord builds a house then all is vanity— forgive us for the vain and the profane. You are the only foundation that stands— therefore, we bow down and declare to the foundations of America, “Come back to the Rock that is higher than you! Return to the One who died for you!”
We bow low that you may be lifted high. Higher than our mountains, higher than our might, higher than our lofty thoughts. We declare, “Not by our might, not by our power but only by your Spirit shall we be saved!”
Forgive us for turning away from truth, turning from the one true way, turning from peace, turning from blessing, turning away from covenant and turning away from you.
We stand in the gap as representatives of this nation called the United States of America and we turn back to you! We declare that we are one nation under God and that our trust is in you alone. We declare true liberty from the captivity of sin for all. We declare your justice for every person of every color. We bridge the great divide with our repentance and our declaration of allegiance to you!
We love your Word, we love your ways and we surrender all to you today. Jesus, you are our King, our Lord, our Savior and our God. In you we trust and in you we put our confident hope. We run to you.
Forgive us, heal us and unite us in the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and have given to us. The blood of Jesus speaks a better word!
God Bless America— the land that we love. Stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above.
Thank you to all who have stood with our ministry in prayer and financial support as we have moved to the Washington DC region to pray for our nation. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated by us and it is seen by God.
The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”
I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.
As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”
From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.
The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,
“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.” Revelation 19:12 NIV
Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.
“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7
God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.
There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.
“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24
The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings therevelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!
The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.
After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.
“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8
I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.
The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”
As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.
Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!
Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14
The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross in John 17:20-23
““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!
We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!
Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!
May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!
