Two Scriptures kept permeating my mind and spirit this past week:
"Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you." Exodus 14:13
"Take up your positions, stand firm, and see the deliverance the LORD will give you." 2 Chron 20:17
The first, of course, is spoken by Moses at the edge of the Red Sea, just before God parts the waters and delivers His people to safety. The second is spoken by King Jehoshaphat to encourage the Israelites as they faced a vast army coming against them.
This IS our "Red Sea" moment, brothers and sisters! And this morning the Spirit of God said to me, "stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to STAND!" (Eph. 6:13)
My day began with that heavenly encouragement and then I received this incredible, faith-restoring word from Dutch Sheets. I will copy it below just as it was written and send this out immediately in hopes that it WILL destroy the "hope-deferred" that so many are feeling right now. Hope deferred makes the heart sick! Let us all rise up in renewed faith and pray together the prayer that Dutch includes at the bottom of His word. There is power in our unified prayer! And I feel that the most important point he makes is this: what God is about to do is not about a man and it is not about a political party. It is about HIS COVENANT AND HIS COVENANT PEOPLE. Amen!
God’s Plans Will be Accomplished - a word by Dutch Sheets dated 1/12/2021
Some politicians are pressing hard to get President Trump completely discredited and out of the way – as quickly and permanently as they can. The media is spinning lies and operating completely in tandem with them, manipulating the minds of millions of Americans. Social media moguls are rapidly shutting down the voices of many who disagree with them politically while allowing falsehoods of all kinds to infiltrate their platforms. It would be astonishing if we did not understand the spiritual realm and how spirits of darkness operate. The enemy has sent a storm of anger and misinformation against America, but we who know the Lord will open our mouths and oppose it.
For the last three days, I have been feeling something significant is about to happen. Decisions of incredible, shocking proportions, I feel are being made. I sense this in my spirit. I believe this is why God chose this time to release Michael, one of His highest ranking angels, to DC. He is a war angel. Michael is God’s strongest, most powerful angel, and He is in charge of what happens there now. I do not pretend to know all of what will be done. I only know that for God to send Michael there, takes everything to another level. God will not be stopped and He will not be defeated.
Understand this, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows,” (Galatians 6:7 NIV). The Lord is watching all of this. He is not nervous nor is He uncertain. He will protect the honor of His name which His enemies have mocked. When He steps into the situation, the fear of the Lord will be tangible. Those operating in the power of the evil one will be suddenly cast down. Every deceitful act will be exposed. They will see that it is God they have acted against. He will remove them in disgrace from the pinnacles of the mountains they have risen through their scheming. Those who look defeated will suddenly rise and take their places. And it will happen suddenly.
God is not protecting a man. He is not protecting a political party. He is protecting His covenant and His plans for America. He is protecting the innocent ones. God will step in through His power and prevailing kingdom purpose to get things where they are supposed to be. He is able to take those He has called and anointed, both in the civil realm and in the spiritual realm, through these stormy times and into their assignments. He will do all of this for His unfolding Kingdom purpose.
My spiritual father, Jim Hodges from Dallas, TX, made the following decree over the praying church. Let’s agree with it. “We say to the ship of the Ekklesia of God, Be steady today. We say to the ship of State (our nation), Get ready. Get ready for the people of God to come forth on a scale they have not moved in since our nation’s founding. These will turn this nation toward victory that has been prophesied over and over again. It is time.”
“An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes, when he finds out his iniquity and when he hates. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; he has ceased to be wise and to do good. He devises wickedness on his bed; He sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not abhor evil.” (Psalm 36:1-4 NKJV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
* Go before the Lord and remove any anger or hatred out of your heart so you can hear Him clearly and pray with righteous authority.
* Ask the Lord to rise up in the fullness of His majesty and judge with righteousness the evil occurring in America’s government today. Worship Him in His holiness. Tell Him we are grateful for Michael’s and His angels’ help.
* Declare, “To those who have devised wicked plans against this nation, do not be deceived. God will not be mocked. He will not allow Himself to be ridiculed nor treated with contempt nor allow His precepts to be scornfully set aside; for whatever a person sows, that is what she/he will reap.”
* Intercede for the fear of the Lord to envelop those who have devised these plans in darkness. Decree them exposed now!
* Pray for the body of Christ. Ask the Lord to break hope-deferred off any who feel that prayers have not been answered. Ask God to restore their faith and their joy.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we will stir ourselves up in a place of holy faith. We are not afraid. We will stand and see Your salvation. We clearly see what those doing evil are trying to accomplish. They will not succeed forever. They think You cannot see their plans. They give no thought to You at all, but You are watching and You have plans they do not know about. They think they have thought of everything and that their trap has slammed shut, catching the innocent ones inside. Surely, Lord, they do not know You.
Lord, we shall put our entire trust in You. We are standing after having done all we know to do. We have decreed and declared and blessed. We have fasted and prayed and taken the actions we knew to take. Now, we will watch Your salvation manifest. We call into being that which does not exist. Bring them into the earth realm. Let Your salvation plan manifest, Lord. We remind ourselves that Your answers to the prayers You gave us are yes and amen. Your promises to us are sure.
The dreams and visions You have given us were not fairy tales. You do not give Your people false hope. Lord, You give dreams and visions to reveal Your plans and invite our cooperation and partnership. You give prophetic words and declarations in order to set things in motion in the spiritual realm. You are working behind the scenes even now and we are going to see the manifestation of Your words. We resist all hope deferred.
We decree over Washington, D.C., that Your kingdom has come; Your will is being done. Evil will be exposed – Michael and his army will round them up. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.
We decree that Your purposes for America WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED!
