Editorial Special Section: Nita Johnson: The Fear of the Lord

Message: Nita Johnson  Date: July 28, 2022  Source: World For Jesus Ministry

From my earliest days as a Christian, people have always asked me: Why does God answer your prayers and not mine? This question always bothers me because I think, “Well, that’s one of his most important roles, the fact that He’s raising people up to prayer so He can make way for them, in their lives, and do new things on the whole earth.”

Critical Event: Reopening the Gateway and Fountain of the Gospel in Bahrain

【Background: At the initiative of President Trump, Bahrain and Israel concluded a peace agreement in September 2020, called the Abraham Accord, declaring friendly relations with Israel of peace, cooperation and constructive diplomacy. Bahrain was the fourth Arab country to recognize Israel at the time. This is a good result of the Trump administration to promote the eradication of global terrorism in the Middle East. …Detailed Reading

  • Genesis 26:18-19   Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them. Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there.
  • Luke 15:20,24    So he got up and went to his father.“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

【prayer】

  • When Bahrain came home : Father, You wept and hurt for Bahrain, who in Your eyes was Ruth who followed Naomi closely, saying to Israel, “Your God shall be  my God,” and eventually into the house of Boaz as the bride of Christ. Thank You, Father God! Choose the little “mustard seed” of Bahrain, who, if filled with the love and power of Christ, will be the strongest Christian pioneer in the Arab world. This time, let the global Christian family take Bahrain on the way home, feel the warm invitation and the warmth of home, and make Bahrain say: It’s good to be home!
  • Bahrain’s waters are overflowing : Father, now You want to rebuild Bahrain, restore the function of this ancient well of revival, so that the waters inside and outside of Bahrain will be opened, so that her neighboring countries UAE (United Arab Emirates), Saudi Arabia, Qatar, etc. The Persian Gulf countries are the first to feel the great overturn and blessing! Bahrain wants to put on the glory of Christ and has great appeal in the Arab region!
  • In the name of Jesus Christ we declare :
    • The visit of the body of Christ will stir up the awakened spirit in the capital city of Manama, releasing the light of Christ.
    • The Abraham Accords must bring more countries to align themselves with Israel.
    • Blessings will come to the Arab region, to the descendants of Ishmael, to satisfy God the Father.

In the name of Christ Jesus, amen!

Editorial Special Section: Glory of Zion International: Turning the Label From Famine to Prosperity

Message: Glory Of Zion International  Date: July 17, 2022

The land on which you are standing is called “parched” but when your put your feet and plant the seeds in that land, I say, it will prosper.

Editorial Special Section: REBEKAH KERRY HUDSON: THE APPOINTED TIME OF YOUR METAMORPHOSIS

Message: REBEKAH KERRY HUDSON  Date: July 30, 2022  Source: Elijia List

We are flowing into an appointed time where we are being transformed from within. Truly the pages of your life are turning. The rustling of those pages are filled with the awe and wonder of God as He acts upon His word concerning your life.

In this time, we are in a final molting stage, which is shedding of the old wineskin to receive the new wineskin. In this state of metamorphosis – the place of growth within – the cocoon shields us, matures us, and transfigures us. We will emerge as a completely changed people. We will emerge transformed by God’s love. We are at the appointed time of opportunity where God is acting on His word. Our faith, married with trust, will propel us by leaps and bounds. We will flourish and multiply as our hearts yield to the process.

“[F]or it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13 ESV)

There is a land which God has for us that flows with milk and honey, a place where we thrive and eat the goodness of the land. It is a place promised to us. We will see the manifestation of God’s promises unfold in our lives. Do not look back to the past places and spaces that seemed to steal your time, focus, and energy. Instead, focus on leaning into the Lord, trusting in His process for your life, and giving all that you are to Him.

“[A]nd He has brought us to this place and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.” (Deuteronomy 26:9 AMP)

“Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.” (Galatians 6:9 AMP)

This is the new horizon where you pick up your mantle, the roar within – the new thing that God has prepared for you – and fly! It is a place in His glory where your heart is purified, your thoughts become His thoughts, and your hunger turns fierce for everything that is of Him. It is a deep place of spiritual growth, new found liberty, and soul renewal. Do not run from the labor pains, for without the process, the promise cannot be birthed. Allow the change and be renewed by the power of Holy Spirit.

“Come up higher!” says the Lord. He wants to show you hidden things, show you great mysteries, show you scrolls and books, fill you with His presence, and saturate your mind with wisdom. Oh, the process is not one of thrills, but it is a process of cutting away to receive the fresh move of Holy Spirit. We can find joy in the process when we understand the outcome, because God has shown us the outcome already in His Word.

“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.” (Romans 5:3-4 ESV)

The place where we are going is a place we have never entered before. We must be like the caterpillar. The caterpillar has never flown, but it does not stop the evolving process that’s leading toward this goal.

God is releasing such marvelous things to His people. Will His people grab ahold of what He is giving and saying? Will hearts yield to the process to enter the cocoon of change and be launched out to fly? Surely the Lord is doing a new thing in His people, and while the rest of the world runs around in disarray, God’s people will be soaring high on the winds – the winds of hope, the winds of promise, the winds of change.

Editorial Special Section: Gina Gholston: The Wind is Blowing

Message: Gina Gholston  Date: August 1, 2022  Source: Give Him 15

Editor’s Note : This is the dream that Gina Gholston received about the coming revival and awakening. She sees how the Holy Spirit will connect the two to bring not only salvation to the lost, but the transformation/transformation that accompanies the Great Awakening. This article is insightful and encouraging.

I dreamed that I was walking down a hallway in Pastor John Kilpatrick’s church. Pastor John led the great Brownsville Revival in Pensacola, FL, from 1995-2000, which saw over 300,000 people saved. I had sat down for a moment in the foyer. Through the passing crowd of people, I could see a door opened to the sound booth. Inside, I could see Pastor Kilpatrick seated, talking with the sound technician. At that moment, he saw me and motioned for me to come into the room. I went into the sound booth, and he said to me, ‘I know you, don’t I?’

I said, ‘Yes,’ and reminded him that we had ministered together in a church a few years prior to this.

He said, ‘Yes, I remember you. I thought I recognized you.’

Then the dream changed, and we were in the sanctuary. The meeting had started; it was very crowded. Then I heard Pastor Kilpatrick’s voice through the P.A. sound saying, ‘Where’s that girl from Tennessee? Come up here!’

Reluctantly, I went up onto the stage. Pastor Kilpatrick stood to my left and handed me the microphone. I was very nervous, but lifted the microphone and began to speak. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit encompassed me, and calmly I spoke these four words: The wind is blowing.’ As those words left my mouth, the Spirit of God moved upon Pastor Kilpatrick, and he fell to the floor under the power of God.

I then began to prophesy, ‘What was will be again, but it will be different this time. It will not be multitudes of people going to one place to find Me. This time there will be “bundles” of people, saturated with My Spirit, going to multiple places where My fire is present. They will be touched by the fire, ignited with My glory and will carry the fire with them as they leave. They will then come in contact with other “bundles” of people, who have also been saturated with the oil of My Spirit and, they, too, will catch fire. They will in turn, spread it to other “bundles.” This is what awakening will look like. This is how My Glory will spread to the nation and the nations.’ And that was the end of the dream.

When I awoke, the Lord immediately said to me, ‘Revival has remembered and recognized you, [as Pastor John had done in the dream], and it is giving you a platform to release My wind. This wind will fan into flames My fire, that will then ignite My saturated ones. Those who are saturated with the oil of My Spirit will quickly ignite and carry the fire. Revival fire will spread across this nation and into the nations of the world like wildfire on dry grass!’

I don’t feel that this dream was about Pastor Kilpatrick and me, but who/what we represent. John Kilpatrick represents revival. This was an announcement that the time had come for the unfolding of the prophesied awakening, which will be built on the platform of revival. And this move of God will be greater and more far-reaching than we can even imagine.The ‘platform’ is not referring to a physical structure or stage, but is symbolic. It is the standard, the message, the proclamation upon which God will build. And this spiritual platform will set the tone for the movement. Revival is the message, and as leaders and ministers begin to proclaim this message, an expectation will be ignited within the Body of Christ.

The platforms of ministry will no longer be our gifts and abilities. Church will no longer be about coming together for a ritualistic gathering that may, at best, create a momentary emotional touch but not an atmosphere in which people can experience a life-changing encounter with God. As in the dream, the wind of the Spirit is blowing to once again stoke the flames of revival in those who are ignitable. As we devote ourselves to God in prayer and obedience, believing His Word, believing the true prophets, and praying in the Holy Ghost, we, like those in the dream, are being saturated with the oil of His presence, becoming fuel for the flame of God!

Revival will not be defined by a few consecutive nights when we gather in a building for some preplanned meetings. Revival is and will be glory revealed. Revival is the restoration of life. It is undeniable power, demonstrated to bring undeniable change. Revival is an awakening alarm to those who have been lulled to sleep by the deceiving tones of a godless culture. The message is Christ in us, working through us to demonstrate His transforming power. This type of revival will the ‘platform.’

This revival will not be in only one geographical location, a move of God where everyone goes to receive a touch from God. This will be more than that! I do believe there will be specific places ignited to burn with the fire of God’s demonstrated presence, but this will be much broader than that. And all that occurs will be about His Glory and His fame being made known to and through His Body. If we embrace this truth, surrender our lives, and surrender our platforms for the proclamation of His platform, we will be used for the unfolding of His plan.

We are the generation of those who seek God (Psalm 24:6), and we will see that for which we have believed. We will not resist the move of God, we will step into it. And we will rise as the ignited ones, experiencing and carrying the fire of His manifested Glory as He works through us to transform the world.”

Editorial Special Section: Nita Johnson: The Fear of the Lord

Message: Nita Johnson  Date: July 28, 2022  Source: World For Jesus Ministry

From my earliest days as a Christian, people have always asked me: Why does God answer your prayers and not mine? This question always bothers me because I think, “Well, that’s one of his most important roles, the fact that He’s raising people up to prayer so He can make way for them, in their lives, and do new things on the whole earth.”

One of His chief joys is to enable us to be extremely productive in the realm of prayer for the kingdom of God. I teach prayer – I teach prayer most of my Christian life. It seems that when I preach, a lot of the message is combined with prayer or God’s love, because that’s how God connects with His people.

But it never occurred to me (in the early days of Christianity) that maybe I should ask the Lord why He answered my prayers that way. Because, you may not believe it, I didn’t know the answer to this question at the time. I still can’t figure out what I might be doing right or wrong! I am so ignorant. Even when trying to teach prayer, I always leave the meeting thinking, “Oh, Lord, I wish I said what You wanted me to say.”

So tonight I’m going to try to talk about why God answers my prayers; maybe this question affects your prayer life a little bit too. If we look at Psalm 2:11 , we find an amazing truth.:

“Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.”

The phrase “serve the LORD with fear” : if you want to put it more plainly, the fear here is “the fear of the Lord.”

The same idea is presented here in Psalm 4:3-4 :

“Know that the LORD has separated the godly for himself, and I call on the LORD, and he will hear me. Be in awe (stand in awe)…”

We can easily translate “standing in awe” (since the Hebrew means the same) as “walking in the fear of God.”

“Stand with fear (stand in reverence), and do not sin; meditate in your heart and be silent when you are in bed.”

Decades ago, I prayed for a friend of mine who was going through a difficult time in her relationship with God. Although she has spent most of her life walking with God, she does not know God. So she was frustrated with God at the time because of her fellowship with God, her prayers, and His Word.

So I prayed for her and asked the Lord to help us – help me to help her, help her to listen and understand. As I prayed for her, this glorious angel stood beside me, and he said, Tell her (he says my friend’s name) that prayer is like a bird in your hand. If you’re asking God’s will , then this prayer will remain in the palm of your hand in the presence of the Lord until it is answered. ”

When these angels visit, they always give such a powerful and profound message so simply. I think they just do it because sometimes people like me are simple and we don’t understand complex answers. So he came to visit me and spoke to me, and I thought what he said was simply beautiful.

“Stand with fear (stand in reverence), and do not sin; meditate in your heart and be silent when you are in bed.”

If we want to get God’s attention to the seriousness we take about something. Some people may become so frustrated that when they speak to our most holy God, they may speak to Him as if He is a friend who is irritated them. But this really isn’t the way it should be.

However, if we come to Him and stand in awe – how do we stand in awe? How do we embrace the fear of God, how do we cultivate the fear of God, and how does that make a difference?

Let me start by saying this: true fear of God is the beginning of all things in God.

When I teach about “coming to the Lord,” I often speak of humility. Humility is part of the fear of God. You cannot fear God without humility, and in the same way you cannot have humility unless you do fear God. The two are inseparable. Why? For to fear God is to see Him in truth. He is different from man, He does not feel like man, He does not act like man; He is God. He is so different from us. The way He sees things is so different.

He is holy. what does that mean?

Well, I’ll just give you a rare sentence – maybe it’s a sentence I shouldn’t even give, but it really means a lot to me (you won’t find scriptures saying that, but nonetheless, it It is true):

“When we stand in the fear of God, we are touching all that is holy. We are admiring His glory.”

We gaze upon Him in awe because He is great, He is grace, He is so sublime, He is so holy; however, the needs of His children are absolutely paramount to Him. Although He is too holy to speak to us, He does it, and He does, because He makes a way where there seems to be no way.

If it’s just God to man – be afraid that He will speak! Be fearful because He is so holy, and if He does speak, you will die. Fear that He will speak! But because He knows what He is and who He is, if you need to hear His voice, He will make a way, and He has made it through the blood. What a great way: through the blood of His dear Son, so that He can speak to us and we can be healed! He can speak to us, and we may be afraid of His voice, like the people of Israel at the foot of the mountain; but we will feel the love no matter what, and we will know that we are loved!

When we talk about the fear of the Lord – He has taught me this for 40 years – and then I start telling and keep preaching!

There are two levels of fear of the Lord, and two ways to receive it. You must have one before you can receive the other.

When the Spirit of the Lord comes in, the fear of the Lord will be in you and become a part of you, but you may never feel it. If you don’t pursue God through prayer and word, you may die without knowing that you have the fear of the Lord in you. It probably won’t change your life much. He will only give you whatever you can bear. He’s not trying to destroy us; He’s trying to recreate us as a vessel to share everything about Him.

The second kind of fear comes from one of the seven spirits of God, the spirit of the fear of the Lord.

Not many people in the church have this spirit of fearing Jehovah. They may think they have, but I assure you, they don’t. If you have this Spirit, you will live a very sanctified life; you do it because you cannot but live that way when the Holy Spirit dwells in you.

You have to be holy because He is holy, so you have to live to be holy. Because He is perfect, you are to live to be perfect, as we are told to do in the New Testament. We know it, we understand it, and we do it through study and prayer.

He has introduced me to the fear of the Lord in the most terrifying way, can you imagine? I’ve been shaking for weeks, and you can’t mention His name in front of me or I’ll start shaking again. I shivered like this for weeks because I was filled with awe of the Lord. At that time I had not yet received the spirit of the fear of the Lord. Still, the fear of the Lord ruled my life so much that I lived in fear of the God I encountered—and that wasn’t a bad thing.

The fear of the Lord is so holy and I long for it so much that it makes me long for more than I have been given in my young Christian life. I don’t want anything else; as long as I can live in Him and my daughter by my side can live in Him, I’ll be as happy as a bear with a honeycomb.

When I was given this kind of reverence for the Lord, my life was filled with a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. It’s clean and long lasting. I love it, it’s so pure. You can’t find anywhere on this planet so clean, not even on those high ice sheets, or on glaciers, glacial water on Earth. There is nowhere on earth where you can experience cleansing in the fear of the Lord. It is clean, it is pure, undefiled, undisguised.

Someone called me once and they were mad at me. Because I corrected things they didn’t want to be corrected. They wanted to make sure I understood that they rejected my correction. They call me a liar. I just laughed – they didn’t know I was laughing, but I was; because you can’t have the fear of the Lord and lie at the same time. You will live in fear of “intentional crime”. You just don’t do it. For two reasons: 1. Fear of willful sin, 2. Because you know that if you lie, even a little white lie, you will be disciplined by the Lord.

So you don’t lie, you don’t steal, you don’t live in jealousy, you don’t covet worldly things, you don’t even live by church standards. If you want to fear the Spirit of the Lord, your life will be clean and pure, because this Spirit will add to your heart and mind a love for His will so pure and perfect that you live to please Him.

Am I totally perfect? No, but I’m very, very close just because I have so much of Him in me; I can’t take credit for it, or steal any glory.

No one knows how imperfect I am like my own daughter. Our kids are amazing and they don’t want to speak ill of Mom and Dad to others. But she knows I’m not perfect. Sometimes I say the wrong thing, sometimes I do the wrong thing, but never on purpose. And yet I have done it, so I will repent madly because I cannot bear the pain of griefing the Holy Spirit.

If I tell you something from this platform, it will be true, otherwise I will not say it; because I am afraid of lying, and if I do lie (which would be very stupid), then I will never be in Him lie about His words, His attributes, or His character. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll say “well, I really don’t know” to you, which is easier than trying to hide it.

When you have the fear of the Lord, your life changes; because of that change, your walk with Jesus may also be closer than anyone you know, because the Lord knows you’ve done it Be prepared; and walk so intimately with Him (because you have become so purified) that He will know what is good for you and what does not harm you.

So I want to strongly encourage you to pray for this gift and He will give you whatever you need to take you to the next step. He will not give you more than you need. It may take years before He can cleanse you enough to receive the fear of the Lord.

He appeared to me personally to experience what it was like to be filled with the Spirit, and then He told me what to pray and how to pray. At that time I prayed many times a day and I would also fast, but it still took Him two years to give me the Spirit. So don’t be impatient, just humble yourself, pray, thank Him for everything He does, thank Him no matter what He does, and you will be blessed. I bless you and I love you.

Is fearing the Lord a way that God can answer more of your prayers? Absolutely, because the fear of the Lord will teach you more about the will of God, so you can pray for His will with confidence.

We love you and we bless you.

Pray for America: Stay Focused

Editor’s Note : This article is an excerpt from Dutch Sheets’ August 4 “Give Him Fifteen Minutes” post, which was written by Dutch Sheets to 8/2 Kansas on “Value Them Both  )” poll results.

【Current affairs background: I want to share some thoughts today regarding Tuesday’s vote in Kansas. Of course, I am deeply disappointed with the outcome of the vote in Kansas. Yet, we must remember that when dealing with the free wills of people, we are never given the authority to control them, only to influence them. Given that fact, we don’t always experience the results we want, just as God Himself doesn’t. For example, it is not His will that any perish spiritually, yet many do (see Matthew 18:14).

I am quite sure that in response to our prayers, God did everything He could to change the will and thinking of many voters. He simply cannot always do so. Jesus could not change the heart of Judas, even after living and traveling with him for three years. Christ wept over Jerusalem because of their blindness and impending judgment (see Luke 19:41). He had tried to reach them, but could not.

Does this mean time spent praying for those who will not change is wasted? Does it mean we were wrong to conduct prayer gatherings and encourage people to pray for Kansas? Of course not. This is no different than preaching the gospel to a person or people, only to have them reject it. We are required to do what is just and right, even while knowing we will not always see the desired outcome. And God is faithful to give people a choice. Though we did not see the results we wanted, we can be sure God has stored up our prayers for Kansas and will still use them at the right time (see Revelation 5:8).

To the people in Kansas and around the nation who fought for the babies, I simply say, “You did well and must continue to fight for them.” After the reversing of Roe, this ongoing battle for life was to be expected. As insane as it is, one of the greatest battles of our time is for the lives of unborn babies. And even after experiencing setbacks, we must continue to fight spiritually and legislatively – just as we continue to preach the gospel, even though some reject it.

It is often stated that elections have consequences. They do, and those results sometimes have far-ranging effects, not just short-term consequences, lasting for a short election cycle of 2 to 4 years. When God’s influence is removed from a people/nation, systems of evil and sin begin to be built. Over time, the fruit of this accrues and multiples. Educators are given positions of influence, minds are molded, unrighteous laws are written that can be difficult to change, and more. Cycles of sin then perpetuate, bringing greater deception and destructive fruit; strongholds are strengthened. In our nation, unrighteous and ungodly decisions began being made decades ago. We are now seeing the horrible fruit of this. And I am not speaking only of abortion.

In America, God is showing us the fruit of rejecting Him. In Scripture, He calls those who do so, “fools.” Indeed. The greatest country on earth now has babbling, cognitively deficient people leading us; men who think they are women serving in cabinet positions; individuals creating national policy who contend that men can become pregnant (and attempting to punish those who disagree); Supreme Court Justices who can’t define what a woman is; educational leaders who contend that we should teach kindergartners they can change their genders; military leaders who believe “wokism” defines preparedness for war, and we could go on.

The rejection of God creates insanity.

My advice to those in the church – and frankly, to all well-meaning Americans – who have bought into the progressive liberalism of our day is, “For the sake of your children and grandchildren, wake up.

To Christians in America who think the church should not be overly involved in political issues and elections, I would simply ask, “How do you think we got into this current mess?” Answer: by allowing unrighteous and ungodly people, who don’t honor God and His ways to be elected into government.

To the praying church (and others working to see America restored in various ways), Do not give up! Sixty years of godless evil cannot be reversed in a year or two. We are making progress. And when the great awakening God has spoken of comes in full force, it will be the game-changer. The change of heart caused by millions of people being born again will truly offset the godless, humanistic thinking of a generation. Then, and only then, will they genuinely care what God and the Bible say. Remember that we are creating this now through our prayers and by placing people into positions of authority and influence.

We must not grow weary in our efforts. God can do this! He has said, “America shall be saved.” Not many believed America could win her independence, but she appealed to heaven and prevailed. Very few believed Roe would ever be overturned, but it was. No one believed Ninevah could experience revival, but it did. No one in Israel believed Saul of Tarsus could become an apostle of God and writer of Scripture. I’m sure no one would have even considered anything as ludicrous as slave trader John Newton one day pastoring the greatest abolitionist in history, William Wilberforce…let alone writing history’s most sung ballad of all time, Amazing Grace. Don’t underestimate God’s ability to redeem.

Let God deal with the people, states, and governments that oppose Him. He will have His way with unrighteous governments and systems. Shakings will continue and intensify. Kansan believers, remain faithful, and keep standing for life. All Americans (and elsewhere) who labor and pray, stay focused. Stay in faith. Keep listening to Holy Spirit, not the circumstances around us. God will prevail.

Pray for America: Declarations for the 50 States to Enter the Destiny (3)

Editor’s Note : This is a prayer point for the 50 states of the United States, taken from Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of the Nation, published in 2005 by Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce a Nation)” book. The motto is the name the prophetic group gave to the 50 states during their 2003 tour. Starting this week, we will be here together to pray and declare for the five states, releasing them into their destiny.

Please pray for the following five states this week:

Hawaii:  (Aloha State)  Motto: The Life of the Land Is Perpetuated   The Pentecost Harvest State

Hawaii was the first state to experience total revival.  We decreed it would happen again.

Prayer Points:

  1. Pray for greater level of unity within the Body of Christ.  There has been much division through deception from the enemy.  

2.Pray for a greater sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit in the church leaders. 3.Pray for righteousness to prevail in the state gov’t. and also pray against the “good ole boy” network mentality.  

  1. Pray for the safety of all military bases, personnel and family in Hawaii.  

5.Pray for the economy of Hawaii.  

  1. Pray that the stronghold of drug abuse is completely uncovered and dismantled.  Also pray for the deliverance and salvation of all drug users and dealers. 
  2. Pray for the police officers on each island.  Pray that deceptive spirits would be exposed and pray against the spirit of temptation and that the officers would overcome them and stand in holiness and integrity. 
  3. Pray that the Lord will raise up more laborers to reel in the harvest of souls. 
  4. Pray for the well of revival from many years ago to be re-dug with intercession, evangelists and more churches.

  2. Pray that this unlocked treasure would be used to affect the nation for the cause of Jesus Christ 
  3. Pray for God to unlock revelation.  
  4. Pray for a spirit of purity to be released in Idaho, especially that other would see a purity in our Christian walk.

  9. Pray for a Cyrus anointing to come upon the Church to subdue nations, open doors and finance restoration.

Illinois: (Prairie State)  Motto:  State Sovereignty, National Union    The Apostolic State

Dutch shared this very pointed word: “Illinois is My apostolic state.”  For Illinois to move fully to the apostolic anointing, it will have to transition to another level of strength, understanding and maturity.

There will need to be more connecting, another level of networking in the state. Breakthroughs and deliverance are going to come and people will be set free.  The Lord says, “The grace is coming on the place.”  Decree that there is a connecting of the Body of Christ coming in Illinois that is going to another level.  Dutch continued prophesying, “God has a phase of learning and another level of the glory. He wants to begin to unfold on you  that God is inside of you, to be God inside-of-you minded everywhere you go. Illinois will be known as the place where the river of God dwells. The Lord said through Dutch, “I will deal with religion and religious form in this state.  I am shaking the established churches and ministries in the region.  Ask for My mercy for them, but do not ask for mercy for the structure.  Ask for restoration of heart.

Indiana: (Hoosier State)  Motto: The Crossroads of America     The First-Strike State

Indiana, God is dreaming about you! (spoken by Will Ford III)  Dutch said that there is something to do with firsts.  First strikes that have to do with Indiana that are first for the nation.  First Strike places have to do with the miraculous profession, the supernatural element that comes and begins to multiply. Maybe there is a First Fruits movement of harvest coming here.  Maybe where God is about to strike first is this younger generation and the revival in the college campuses.  I saw the fire of God going from place to place and saw very clearly Notre Dame but not limited to one place. I saw a move of God’s Spirit literally overwhelm the universities…it was a first strike, coming with such ferocity..fire of cleansing, fire of trials, holiness movement…miracles..a rolling move of fire that could not be stopped! He asked if Indiana would be would be a First strike state. First strike people have to be people who insist on heavenly strategy  Chuck then said, “You are at a crossroads right now.  You are either going to be found wanting, or you are  going to come into what God has for you and make a shift this time and not go back.. Then I saw secret societies that are so entrenched in this state.  May the Church be anointed in a new way.”  

Pray that Indiana will go all in for what God is calling them to do.  Call forth the cleansing revival fire of God sweeping through colleges to forever change Indiana and continue through the whole nation!

Iowa: (Hawkeyes)  Motto: Our Liberties We Prize & Our Rights We Will Maintain Corn State-Supply & Release

 The Lord said through Chuck Pierce, “The corn belt states are going to rise up and learn a new way of releasing.  

Chuck prophesied, “The Lord says, “You will release food.  You will release funds.  You will release revelation for times that are ahead.’ There will be a shift in the economic system, but it’s a sign for this particular state.  In Iowa, in the days ahead, you are about to be broken open in a way like never before.  The Lord would say, “From this state, Babylon will begin to change.  For I will make a supernatural connection from the cornfields to the supply from this state that will change the course of the Church in Iraq.  Do not look at the confusion that is going on in that land.  For here in Iowa, you will a supernatural authority to defeat Babylon in days ahead.  The Lord would say to you, “Change is now upon this state.  What has been asleep, now will wake up.  I will have a people that begin to rise before the sun and make decrees, so that the order that I have for this state will be made.  I will have a praying group that rises every morning in the north, south, east and west corners.  They will rise up and make their decree. And from that decree, I will bring to birth My very purpose in this state.  And even though you have been submerged under Michigan and Wisconsin, I say that Iowa is now rising to the attention of this nation.”

Pray for Israel: ‘Operation Dawn’ hits Gaza Jihad

Current affairs background: In response to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ, Chinese abbreviation: Jihad) planned to launch an attack on Israel, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in Israel time from August 5 to 7, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in the Gaza Strip A preemptive air strike called Operation Breaking Dawn was launched.

In retaliation, PIJ also fired more than 1,000 rockets from Gaza to Israel’s border towns, southern and central parts of Gaza in two and a half days. What’s more, on the third day of the conflict, PIJ expanded the range of rocket launches, and at around 8:00 am on Sunday (8/7), rocket alarms were sounded in several communities near the capital Jerusalem. Later in the day, the PIJ said it had fired “massive” rockets at Tel Aviv and southern cities. Thanks to Egypt-based mediation, Israel and PIJ reached a ceasefire agreement at 11:30pm on the 8th.

Over 1,000 rockets fired at Israel from Gaza

As of the evening of August 8, the ceasefire between the two sides and the Israeli army stated that since the start of “Operation Dawn”, Jihad fired more than 1,100 rockets from the Gaza corridor towards Israel. Of these, 200 rockets fell back into Gaza, killing civilians, including children in the Jabaliya refugee camp.

During the Sabbath and Epoch fasting periods, when Jews gathered at the Western Wall and Temple Mount to pray, the Jerusalem area also sounded the air raid sirens for the first time. In addition, the southern Israeli community and the cities of Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Yavne, the central Israeli city of Rishon Lezion, Air raid sirens were sounded in Holon, Bat Yam, Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Modiin and several other cities. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis took refuge in bomb shelters.

In response to the Gaza PIj rocket attack, the Israeli army continued to use the “Iron Dome” missile defense system (Iron Dome) to intercept it. According to the data released by Israel, the interception rate is 96%.

Focus on fighting Islamic Jihad

The targets of the IDF’s “Dawnbreak” (military) operation were limited to the Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and Hamas was not hit.

On August 1, the Israel Defense Forces arrested PIJ West Bank leader Bassam al-Saadi and others in Jenin, Samaria, and killed a PIJ militant during the operation. Subsequently, PIJ declared a state of alert and preparedness, and said it would use “the most advanced weapons” to attack Israel.

On August 5, the IDF preemptively attacked the residence of Tayseer al-Jabari, a senior PIJ commander in northern Gaza, through air strikes. Jabari was killed. In retaliation, PIJ fired rockets from Gaza towards Israel. The IDF then killed Khaled Mansour, commander of the PIJ’s southern brigade, in a targeted mid-air attack on Rafah in Gaza. “According to our intelligence… all PIJ’s senior security personnel in Gaza have been eliminated,” said Major General Oded Basiuk, head of the Operation Dawn command.

The IDF said Israeli Air Force jets, armed drones, helicopters and tanks carried out more than 40 strikes, hitting dozens of targets belonging to the PIJ in the Gaza Strip, including military bases, weapons production sites and warehouses, and rocket launch sites , buildings used by operatives, observation posts, etc.

Who is PIJ (Palestinian Jihad)?

PIJ was established in 1981 and is based in the Gaza Corridor. It refused to accept the “two-state solution”, advocated the armed destruction of Israel, and aimed to establish an Islamic State of Palestine. designated as a terrorist organization. It has planned numerous attacks against Israeli civilians, including suicide bombings. After being retaliated by the Israel Defense Forces in 2004, the group’s influence was greatly diminished.

Iran is the main financial donor behind the PIJ and also has strong ties to Hezbollah in Lebanon, which provides it with financial, military and moral resources. After Israel and Egypt cracked down on Hamas in early 2014, PIJ’s power has regained its steady growth with Iranian funding.

PIJ , which also uses the Gaza corridor as a hostile Israeli base, has a lot in common with Hamas : both seek to destroy Israel, are also affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood, and also receive substantial funding and military support from Iran. Because of similar goals. Hamas and PIJ have cooperated in various fields. However, PIJ is much smaller in strength and size than Hamas, which is mainly a radical political and armed group of Islamic Sunnis that holds power in the Gaza corridor. PIJ is closer to Hezbollah and the Islamic Republic of Iran, both of which are Shia Islam.

Tensions between PIJ and Hamas intensify

According to the analysis of the “Jerusalem Post”, Israel’s “Operation Dawn” Hamas and the already tense relations between Hamas and PIJ have further strained, and many PIJ supporters feel betrayed. Hamas did not join PIJ and other armed groups in launching rockets into Israel. There was not even a direct conversation between senior officials of Hamas and PIJ.

Palestinians in Gaza rated Hamas as one of the winners in Israel’s confrontation with PIJ. The PIJ, the second largest armed force in the former Gaza, was hit hard in Israel’s “Operation Dawn”, with senior commanders annihilated and arsenals devastated, making the PIJ a real threat to Hamas’ ability to rule the Gaza corridor frustrated. Hamas can thus consolidate its dominance in Gaza.

Iranian forces behind

According to the “Al Jazeera” report, the commander-in-chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Salami issued a statement on 8/6, emphasizing that Palestine will not face the Israeli army’s bombing alone. Restoring the rights of the Palestinian people.

Salami also threatened to launch Hezbollah in Lebanon to use rockets to harass Israel. The conflict in the Gaza Strip not only represents Israel and Palestine, but behind Palestine is the shadow of Iran’s desire to expand its influence in the Middle East. Around Israel, two armed groups, Hamas and Hezbollah, are related to Iran. The Israeli government accuses Iran of Smuggling weapons to them to harass Israel.

Iranian President Lacey also issued a tough statement, claiming that Israel will pay the price.

PIJ Secretary General Ziyad al-Nakhala has been visiting Tehran, the capital of Iran, since 8/2, meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister, the Iranian President, the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, and the Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

According to a report by the London, Tehran – Asgard Al-Awsat news agency 8/8, the adviser to the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Akbar Wilayati, has put Tehran and Palestine in Islamic jihad. The relationship between the organizations was described as “close and serious”. Nahara, who is still in Tehran, said that Iran has a prominent presence in the Palestinian territories and that the enemy (Israel) and the United States have adopted a “very weak” policy in the face of Iranian influence.

Pray for Israel: Messianic Believers – Israel’s Critical Mass

Current affairs background: According to statistics, by 2022, there will be more than 14 million Jews in the world, of which about 6.5 million Jews live in Israel. Of the 14 million Jews, there are about 500,000 who believe in Jesus, out of that 250,000 of whom live in the United States, and only 17-20,000 Messianic believers live in Israel.

The young Messianic group became the eschatological remnant of Israel, a critical mass. How important and precious they are. Young Messianic believers are enthusiastic and eager to pursue the Lord and participate in various equipping training. They long to stand on the shoulders of their fathers and run straight for the mark. They desire to obey completely, to be transformed into the likeness of the Lord Jesus. They are like the ” thirsty ones ” that the Lord Jesus called in the Gospel of John ( John 7:37-38 ).

Shaking cause people to walk together, walking together brings greater shakings

All walks of life in Israel have been shaken since the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Israeli cabinet was disbanded a few weeks ago. How important is the prayer and response of the Israeli Messianic believers as the critical mass in Israel at this time. We believe that the revival and transformation of Israel will come when Messianic believers stand together in one heart and two generations walk in alignment with God.

Critical Event: Reopening the Gateway and Fountain of the Gospel in Bahrain

【Background: At the initiative of President Trump, Bahrain and Israel concluded a peace agreement in September 2020, called the Abraham Accord, declaring friendly relations with Israel of peace, cooperation and constructive diplomacy. Bahrain was the fourth Arab country to recognize Israel at the time. This is a good result of the Trump administration to promote the eradication of global terrorism in the Middle East.

God has already prepared

In the Middle East, where the Gospel of Christ is severely resisted, is Bahrain an important gateway and source of the Gospel? “Bahrain” means “two seas” in Arabic, representing the inner water and the surrounding outer water. Manama, the capital of Bahrain, means “sleeping place”. In the eyes of God, the living water of Christ will flow out of the fountain of Bahrain in His time and spread; this enchanted “Sleeping Beauty” will also be awakened in the kiss of Christ.

In Bahrain, the currently recognized Christian community dates back to the 12th century, but according to archaeological remains, Bahrain had its own Christian church as early as AD500. This means that the Gospel entered before Islam and, with the recognition of the Bahraini government, marked a sign of Christianity in the spiritual realm. The signing of the Abraham Accord was also a prophetic move, paving the way for God to further act in Bahrain and the Arab countries.

Called by God to Do Important Things

Pastor Hanni and his wife Danni have been planting churches in Bahrain for 23 years. When they first prayed to God, God responded that he would raise up local Christians in Bahrain. Amazingly, God took an opportunity to speak to the king of Bahrain himself and asked him to give Pastor Hanni a Bahrain flag. Since then, Pastor Hanni and his wife have been empowered to become the first Christian pastors in Bahrain and can preach anywhere in Bahrain. Afterwards, the local people gradually rose up. At present, there are about 100 churches in Bahrain, and 50% of them are local people.

In 2022, God has called through the “Homecoming” team to gather in Bahrain this October! This time to open the ancient well and to wake up the body of Christ of all nations from its slumber. The ancient wells of Bahrain will not only spew fresh water, but also spread out; Manama will wake up and come alive in the love of the body of Christ, and Bahrain will become the beacon of the Persian Gulf, and even the pilot light of the Middle East!

Pray for Native Americans: Arise and Resound!

【Current Affairs: In these times, I believe the Lord is INCREASING and RELEASING His voice, with great authority, through His “first fruits” people groups of the land. He is raising up His sold out, set apart, Indigenous burning ones, and releasing HIS VOICE to set nations ablaze for Jesus.

Recently, the Lord took me up into an encounter, and I was looking down on my nation of Australia. By the Spirit of God, I knew that this encounter was for Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and other Indigenous people to the lands.

His Glory Released Through the First Nations Indigenous People

I could see glory mist rising up from the land across the nation. As my spiritual eyes zoomed in closer to the land, in the midst of the glory, I could see people dancing, and I heard a glorious sound. It was the First Nations Indigenous people of the land, worshiping and dancing in their cultural way; the dust of the land spraying up as their feet hit the ground. The glory of the Lord was released into the land as they stomped in the dance. The glory spread and filled the land of the nation (see Habakkuk 2:14).

The First Nations people carry a glory that is unique to the land. This glory is about to be released into the nations, and I believe it is a powerful, ancient key to unlock the awakening of nations.

The Rhythm of an Ancient Love

The overwhelming sense which surrounded me was that these First Nation countrymen and women were dancing to the rhythm of an ‘ancient love’ that compelled them to arise and dance with song; an ancient love that wooed them and drew them back to their first love, Jesus.

“Break forth with dancing! Make music and sing God’s praises with the rhythm of the drums! For He enjoys His faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with His beauty, and He loves to give them victory.” (Psalm 149:3-4 TPT) (Photo via Piqsels)

“We love Him, because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 KJV)

An Intergenerational Love Drawn from an Ancient Timeline

This ancient love seemed to rise from deep within the age-old layers of this land. It felt to me like an intergenerational love for our Creator was being drawn from an ancient timeline, up through the feet of the First Nations people, and released into the “now” timeline. It was being released through their dance, their song and their hands.

As we all join hands and hearts, the love of God will become known through our lives in the present day. We will be known by the fruit of this ancient love of God; the one who loved us before the foundations of the earth. This intergenerational, ancient love is reigniting within the people.

During this whole encounter, I was surrounded with a strong sense of surrender and being positioned right in the center of a place that beckons, “Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you” (see James 4:8).

Ancient Strongholds Broken

As the perfect love of God poured out through the land and the people, the sheer power of this pure love caused ancient strongholds to be broken off of the land and the people. The land itself was breaking free from shackles and being saturated and soaked in the love and the pure goodness of God.

Unearthing His Hidden Treasures

The love of God was washing away all reproach and revealing these priceless treasures.

“I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:1-3 AMPC)

I believe the Lord is unearthing His hidden treasures. These hidden treasures are the First Nations voices of the Land, which are being unearthed from the lower layers of the land, causing them to ARISE and RESOUND – NO LONGER BOUND! Once hidden, now they will be lifted up from the miry clay to decree and declare the Word of the Lord, and to display His splendor. (Photo via Pxfuel)

First Nations Awakened Sons Shift Into Destiny

What I was seeing was the First Nations awakened sons and daughters shifting into destiny, arising from the land with a dance of deliverance, a strong song and a new voice.

“O God, my saving God, deliver me fully from every sin, even the sin that brought bloodguilt. Then my heart will once again be thrilled to sing the passionate songs of joy and deliverance!” (Psalm 51:14 TPT)
