For the past three days, I have been sharing with you about the power of prayer, and learning about paga, the Hebrew word for intercession. Today, I’m going to share four stories with you about answered prayer. First John 5:14-15 tells us: “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.” Let these stories boost your faith and confidence.
A couple of weeks after I was introduced to the Appeal to Heaven flag, Holy Spirit gave a profound dream to my friend, Rick Curry. The dream seemed to encapsulate the synergy of the ages; putting ourselves into the storyline; the fact that God was involved in the birth of America; and the significance of the Appeal to Heaven flag.
Operation Overtake and Occupy the Cedars. In yesterday’s post, we began discussing a dream Holy Spirit gave Greg Hood. Though I won’t read the portion we included yesterday, I am including it [in brackets] for those who did not see it. Then I will continue with the second portion.
It is now clear to those with any level of prophetic discernment in the church that there is no hope for America’s survival apart from supernatural intervention. It will take a genuine revival, one that produces a sweeping return to God, to reverse America’s insanity, restore reason and allow God to restore us.
As we continue discussing our spiritual authority as believers, for the next few days, I want to share some principles on why it takes time for our prayers to be answered, including prayers for revival. If we have the authority of Christ’s name, if we truly are His Ekklesia with authority to represent Him, why does it sometimes take so long to produce results? Why is persistence required?
Most believers don’t understand the important difference between power and authority. Horses have much more power than humans, but one who knows horses well can exercise authority over that power. Other hunters in our camp, possessing a knowledge of horses, rode theirs all week.
On Friday night (2/10/23), I was in Ohio with my brother, Tim, and several other great leaders. Holy Spirit moved in a marvelous way. The theme became the subject of “Reformation.” Though I have recently taught some of the information, in today’s post, I felt it would be appropriate to do so again. We cannot hear this too much!
On Tuesday, when introducing this week’s emphasis on generational synergy and the importance of legacy, I mentioned my mom and grandmother. They loved Jesus, lived godly lives, and prayed for their kids and grandkids EVERY day. No finer people ever lived. I like to think they are watching this week’s posts with us – after all, they are part of the great cloud of “witnesses” – enjoying the fruit of their labors. Perhaps Abba, when one of their kids, grandkids or great grandkids does something for His Kingdom, glances their way and winks while mouthing a “thank-you.”
First of all, I’m as convinced as I’ve ever been that we will see a sweeping revival and reformation in our nation. This includes the restoration of our God-given assignment to the nations of the world. These things – revival, reformation, and restoration – are what the statement “America shall be saved” means to me. My first allegiance is to the Kingdom of God, not the United States, and always will be. However, I do love America with what I am confident is a God-given love.
“The body of Christ is in a strategic God-planned time. God is leading His people into an awesome new era. He has not abdicated His throne or submitted His Kingdom to the government of man, a political party or to a league of nations. He is going to clearly show He has not handed over the deed of the earth. He will demonstrate again that He is the supreme potentate, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Holy Spirit is orchestrating this planned season and leading the lives of those who willingly follow Him.
