Posted on 07/09/2007 6:12:12 AM PDT by ovrtaxt
On 7-7-07, The Call took place in Nashville, TN. There was an almost total media blackout in the MSM- an AP story ran on some minor news portals, and local TV stations in Nashville covered it.
However, Titans stadium was filled to overflow capacity as crowds of fasting worshippers encountered God in a corporate act of devotion to His Kingdom.
and a TV news report- over 100,000 attended.
Meanwhile, the organizers of Live Earth are embarrassed at their low turnout and lack of interest- blaming it on 'climate change'!
ping for the Kingdom!
Another great example of how the MSM lies through omission.
They don’t understand it, therefore it doesn’t exist.
And support GodTv in their spreading of the Gospel of Christ.
yep, god.tv is very cool.
Our taglines seem to be sing the same song, ya think? :-)
Just noticed your signup date- welcome to FR!
Thanks for the ping!
“in the back of the Book It says we win”
We only win if we get in the fight. Most people are sitting around waiting on the Apocalypse so they aren’t fighting at all.
But if 5 gay dudes or 5 Muzzies or 5 (name victim class for democrat party) had gathered for coffee, you would have heard about the "Million Mom/Men/Sexually Ambivalent" March.
Don't ever assume that you need press to give creedence to what conservative or Christian do. We're here in numbers.
Listen to this guy. Here’s the Word of the Lord for exactly that situation. He has a teaching called the 7 mountain strategy- it’s a blueprint for sustained societal change by the Kingdom.
I listened to a fair amount of the Nasville 07/07/07 on a housemate’s computer . . . good stuff.
I couldn’t get it- their servers were swamped I guess.
But I did participate in a 3 day prayer/prophetic conference in Orlando, in which several of the speakers (Dutch Sheets, Cindy Jacobs, Paul Keith Davis, etc.) left and flew immediately to Nashville.
Last time there was this much hype, and this disasterous of a result it was John “Anybody But Bush’ Kerry losing in 04.
The thing I thought was way interesting was the timing of Live Earth being on the same day. You know I don't think the planners did this on purpose, course you never know. But, I bet satan did. The boy just never learns. God always, ALWAYS wins.
I LOVE GOD TV. It’s about all I watch anymore, that and FoxNews and the occassional movie.
Not to worry, God’s gonna get them off there duff. Just watch and see. If prayer can move mountians, prayer can move people. I’m learning to quit complaining (not an easy lesson by any means) and pray =)
If by "we" you mean "us saved folks", then, no, we don't only win if we get in the fight; we win -- period.
But it actually goes deeper than that, because the fact is that we do not have an option as to whether or not we get in the fight. We were BORN into the fight; the entire context of life is warfare between Good and Evil, and the souls of men are the prize being fought over. Our only option is whether or not to acknowledge that we're in this fight, grab a sword and start swinging.
In THAT sense, and I think it's what you actually meant, YES, we very much need to get in the fight intentionally.
If "we" [us saved folks] actively engage the battle, we'll have a better grasp of reality than if we cower in the rear of the ranks or, worse, pretend there is no war going on. Regardless, though, whether we get bloody or cower in the back, we all win at the end. The only aspect that changes is the garnish, the basic reward package is the same, single "denarius" (ref. Matt. 20:1-16).
As for "waiting for the Apocalypse"; that's what happens when folks subscribe to bad eschatology. I've been in that category, myself, in the past, and recall feeling very much like a spectator; like there wasn't anything I needed to be doing apart from the standard "watch and pray" duties.
That's a HUGE discussion to broach, here, but I'll risk it just to assert this: we're all in this for the duration. May the Apocalypse find us waitching, praying, AND fighting the good fight of faith.
Ooooohh, I'm envious. My internet was down all day Saturday, so I couldn't connect to god.tv and watch any of it. I didn't see any archive of it on god.tv, so I guess Ill have to join everyone else in waiting for the fruit to appear on the tree.
NBC had lower ratings than Live 8 two years ago...Family Guy won the time period.
Total BS that 2 billion watched any of that event.
God’s a Sneaky Little -—uh-—God, ain’t He?!?!
Here is my flickr.com set from SATURDAY.
Funny you posted this.
A buddy and I were thinking almost the exact same thing.
Wow,those are great pics.
I was at the PK meeting in DC back in the late 90s. It was a powerful demonstration of spiritual power. The most powerful city on that planet, and when God’s people converged on it, we shut that city down.
They couldn’t do anything. It was praying men as far as you could see. They estimated between 6 and 7 million.
Looks like you had a great time. What a blessing.
“recall feeling very much like a spectator; like there wasn’t anything I needed to be doing apart from the standard “watch and pray” duties.”
That is exactly what I was driving at.
Many people don’t want to get in the “messy” business of politics, and many think it doesn’t matter because the Apocalyse is so close at hand. I’ve had this conversation with lots of people who are sitting on their hands waiting for God to come fix everything for them.
I agree, this is too big a discussion to take place here, but I agree with your comment about “waiting for the Apocalypse”.
Here’s something you might appreciate. Links to PDF-format notes are downpage.
Yep and I love it...lol
International House of Prayer is on GOD TV
And it looks as if they are planning to stream a fair amount of content live.
Mike Bickle will be doing a morning devotional. Check the God TV scehdule on line, but I think it’s at 11:00am Eastern Time. God TV also will be broadcasting some of the content from the Prayer Room at IHoP in Kansas City.
IHOP has subscription-based live streams from the Prayer Room that you can get right on your computer; an audio only and a couple of video streams.
Thanx for your testimony!
Now that the media's Jesus fad is over after 9/11 Believers are now portrayed as the moonshinin' toothless, sub-human hillbillies of Deliverance.
Giving, fasting and praying is our Lifeline to Jesus Christ Himself; therefore, we cannot drop the conversion ball as we did after 9/11 when terror drove people to the Lord and we didn't show them his Reality Show.
Thanks for the info. Mike Bickle (got the spelling right this time =) is an awesome man of God.
Guys, it’s been refreshing to read your comments here. There aren’t too many (yet) who understand the imposition of God’s will through spiritual authority, coupled with an awareness of the Spirit’s manifestation here in our lives. Hopefully, this will change.
There are many times when I’ve felt alone on FR, but this isn’t one of them. Be blessed!
Bless you!! Specially if you got into the Cable, Euro, and Swissie the last two days. Might could’ve retired with a standard account :’).
I know what you mean. Last time I was on here was several years ago. A UPS truck had blown up and they didn't know why. I was concerned for the driver and asked for prayer, I got blasted. And was told basically that if I wanted to talk like that, this person would complain and have me kicked off. Told me to go to the religious section of FR.
I didn't purposely leave because of that, there were some other issues in my life at the time, but, it sure didn't help.
Doesn't seem FR is the same as back then. They had just separated religious things off into another section. It just didn't feel right. Why separate? If someone doesn't like it, they don't have to go onto that post or article.
THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS.
Today I received the following as an account of the event:
Reporting in from Oberlin, Kansas where i “safely landed” monday night after 2 wonderful days of driving and sensing the FAVOR and PRESENCE of the LORD !!!!
NO REPORT CAN DO JUSTICE TO WHAT THOUSANDS OF US WERE BLESSED TO BE A PART OF IN NASHVILLE !!!!
THERE WERE SO MANY “HITS” TO THE GODTV WEBSITE THAT IT CRASHED - WHICH IS A MARVELOUS THING IN ITSELF:)
THEY ARE GOING TO BE RE-PLAYING SEGMENTS OF THE EVENT IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS SO KEEP CHECKING THEIR SCHEDULE - IT WILL BE WELL WORTH YOUR TIME AND EFFORT !!
I CAN REPORT WITHOUT RESERVATION THAT THERE WAS A VERY RADICAL AND COMMITTED REMNANT OF THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THIS NATION IN NASHVILLE FOR THIS HISTORIC EVENT - A FAST AND NOT A FEAST !!!
IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT FASTING HAD BEEN OCCURRING LEADING UP TO THE EVENT AS EVERYTHING WENT FLAWLESSLY FOR THE REPENTANCE WALK THAT BEGAN AT 7 AM AND FOR THE 12 HOURS IN TEH STADIUM !!!!
IT WAS A MAGNIFICENT DAY SPENT IN REPENTANCE, PRAYER AND FASTING !!! I BELIEVE A MOST STRATEGIC TIPPING EVENT IN PREPARING THE WAY FOR REPENTANCE AND REVIVAL TO SWEEP THRU AMERICA HAS OCCUR ED AS PRAYER IN THE BOWLS OF HEAVEN FOR THE NATION WERE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED !!
I LEFT NASHVILLE SO ENCOURAGED THAT THERE IS HOPE - THERE IS HOPE - THERE IS HOPE FOR OUR NATION AND FOR THE 3rd GREAT AWAKENING TO ENTER INTO THE EARTH !!!!
Pre Call Meetings
Attended by over 1,000 radically wildly worshipping and reverently devoted followers of Jesus
Dutch shared the revelation that had come that Saturday was a monumental “Court Case” regarding the Body of Christ’s divorce from Baal and that there would be a great custody battle:
1) for the children of the nation ( whoever gets the children gets the land)
2) for the transference of wealth and resources
3) there was repentance that the church has been an unfit mother to the children of this nation but that she will be washed in the blood of Christ and forgiven and be cleansed and made ready for this responsibility again
There was tremendous warfare for this current younger generation and for the ENDING of ABORTION
The Repentance Walk
Over 10,000 (by nature: talkative,unrestrained,prideful) Americans walked in perfect order,harmony,humility and silence for 3 miles right up Church Street to the stadium ... i had a sense that this MOST POWERFUL SILENCE AND HUMILITY (just like the prayers at the Supreme Court these past 3 years) was causing the enemy TO TREMBLE
The Stadium Event
words cannot describe how seamlessly and flawless the entire 12 hours flowed ...
the crowd was incredibly diverse with hispanic, african and asian americans and all the generations represented !!!!
every segment of the day flowed powerfully - highlights for me included :
* repentance for the church’s sins of sexual perversion, addiction to pornography and abortion
* the declarations of the divorce from baal
* 3 actual weddings/ marriage covenants took place right there in the stadium - it was way TOO COOL!!!!
* the blowing of 300 shofars to announce the Lord’s Victorious Power in the battles that lie ahead
etc etc etc !!!
...please do try to see some of this on godtv !!!!
to God be the glory and to Lou Engle, Dutch Sheets, Mike Bickle, Michael Goll, Che Ahn and multiple other be great thanksgiving for these warriors who lead so beautifully!!!
AGAIN, I LEFT NASHVILLE HAVING GREAT HOPE THAT THE MOMENTUM FOR A MASSIVE MOBILIZATION OF PRAYER AND FASTING IN THIS NATION HAS BEGUN AND THAT A GREAT SHIFT TO RETURN US TO GOD’S WILL AND WAYS HAS SUCCESSFULLY OCCURRED !!!
IT WILL BE THE AMERICAN CHURCH BACK IN COVENANT WITH THE LORD AND REVIVED - NOT THE POLITICS OF 2008 - THAT WILL SET OUR NATION BACK ON THE RIGHT COURSE !!!!
Here’s an email I got from Steve Schultz this morning:
July 12, 2007
Steve Shultz and Jessica Miller:
“07-07-07 ROAD TRIP REPORT—TheCall NASHVILLE”
FOUNDING EDITOR’S NOTE: As you watch this video, please know that NO AMOUNT of videotape or streaming internet can do justice to this CALL for repentance and justice in Nashville on 07-07-07. Eight people from the ElijahList flew out and attended TheCall Nashville. The heat was almost unbearable, but the thirst for a massive move of God was even more unquenchable.
We drank water and Gatorade all day, and it did some good to keep our bodies dealing with the heat, but the bottom line is this...Something happened—something very, VERY BIG—in Nashville. As there were up to three times as many marriages as any day in history, around the world, Lou Engle led the “charge” (along with people such as Dutch Sheets, Bishop Bill Hamon, Cindy Jacobs, Bishop Harry Jackson, James Goll; Jewish leaders such as Michael Brown, as well as many Native American and Latino leaders) in one of the greatest and most intense CALLS in the history of the United States, for the Church in America and around the world to become REMARRIED to Jesus. The prophetic ACTS of several weddings were simply signs of what the crowd was doingbecoming once again committed to God, for all eternity. There was a female abortion doctor who repented on behalf of all those doctors who perform abortions.
I have never repented for more things and in more ways in my life, and to do it in a Stadium nearly full (TITAN STADIUM in Nashville, often called the “Buckle of the Bible Belt”) held high and Holy meaning for all of us. This was one of the most meaningful events of my life. Only “future history” not yet written on earth, but “prerecorded in Heaven” will show what we accomplished for this nation in Nashville, on Saturday, July 7, 2007. The event was broadcast live by GOD TV in more than 200 nations simultaneously, although due to full servers, some viewers were unable to log on. In the future, it may be available on GOD.TV as Video On Demand. My thanks to CBN for covering this event.

Imagine this: Nashville Tennessee the Titan stadium...prophetic words being fulfilled in our very midst and the thrill of being a part of it on July 7, 2007 (7/7/7).
Many years ago, Bob Jones and other reputable prophets declared “stadium meetings,” and there we were participating with the Lord and the awesome display of His word fulfilled!
Anticipation, humility, and faith filled the air with a tangible presence. Repentance, forgiveness, worship, spiritual warfare, the divorcing of the Church and America from the spirit of baal the recommitting and recovenanting in marriage to the Lord after 40 years of departing from Him, our Bridegroom...
There were even three marriage ceremonies sealed as a sign of our being sealed to the Lord it was a stunningly weighty and glorious day one of which words fall so very short in describing. It was mind, soul, and spirit “boggling.”
Prophetic words were released concerning terrorism a call to pray for exposure and intervention. Also, the Lord clearly declared that the very purpose why all the many thousands of us had joined there in that place in one accord actually worked it was not just a hyped up emotional screamfest it was Joel 2:16-25 happening before our very eyes—in us, through us, and for us...
Gather the people,
Sanctify the congregation,
Assemble the elders,
Gather the children and nursing babes;
Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber,
And the bride from her dressing room.
Let the priests, who minister to the LORD,
Weep between the porch and the altar;
Let them say, “Spare Your people, O LORD,
And do not give Your heritage to reproach,
That the nations should rule over them.
Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?’” Then the LORD will be zealous for His land,
And pity His people.
The LORD will answer and say to His people,
“Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil,
And you will be satisfied by them;
I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.
“But I will remove far from you the northern army,
And will drive him away into a barren and desolate land,
With his face toward the eastern sea
And his back toward the western sea;
His stench will come up,
And his foul odor will rise,
Because he has done monstrous things.”
Fear not, O land;
Be glad and rejoice,
For the LORD has done marvelous things!
Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field;
For the open pastures are springing up,
And the tree bears its fruit;
The fig tree and the vine yield their strength.
Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,
And He will cause the rain to come down for you
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month.
The threshing floors shall be full of wheat,
And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten... Beloved Bride of Christ our labors (yours and mine) have not been in vain surely the set time has come and the scales of justice, mercy, and grace have been tipped in favor of the establishment of God’s Kingdom come His will be done HERE on earth as it is in Heaven!
Let’s Pray on Pro~Destiny,
Jessica L. Miller

2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Another report on the event:
We came to Nashville, TN on July 7th, 2007 in response to a call from Lou Engles for a holy convocation of repentance towards the LORD and for the Church and our nation. Believers of every ethnos, age, race, denomination, and non-denomination came by car, bus, train, and plane. We came with the single purpose of repenting and turning the course of the Church and our nation.
We had begun forty days previously with fasting and repenting of our personal sins. Now we were assembling to confess and repent of corporate sins. We were doing this according to the instructions found in Joel 2:12-18:
“Therefore also, now saith the Lord, turn even to me with all you heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning, and tear your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord, your God; for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him, even a meal offering and a drink offering unto the Lord, your God.
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly. Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that nurse at the breasts; let the bridegroom go forth from his chamber, and the bride out of her room. Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and altar, and let them say Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the people, Where is their God?
Then the Lord was jealous for his land, and pitied his people. “
Some of us had arrived in Nashville previous to the 7th. We were invited to meet at the Renaissance Hotel for several days of teaching, praising and worshiping the Lord. Lou Engles had just returned from Israel and had been fasting, and so was very weak. He spoke to us for a few minutes on Thursday the 5th, and then retired to his room for rest.
Chuck Pierce, Mike Bickle, Dutch Sheets, Will Ford, and two young men from IHOP named Corey and David taught and encouraged us on the 5th and 6th. We were ready to meet with God on the 7th. We had been told that the L.D. Field where the Titans play football was to be God’s courtroom. We came fasting, not feasting.
The next morning at 7:00, those who had the heart and strength met two and a half miles away from the stadium. They made a silent walk of repentance down Church Street to the stadium. On one of the major corners of their walk, Larry Flint had a building of scantily dressed manikins in the glass windows. It was a place where erotic items were merchandised. The marchers were to pray, repent for the carnality of the Church, and say not a word.
We were allowed into the stadium at 8 a.m. When I took my seat in the upper regions of the west side of the stadium, the musicians were playing and the stadium was soon nearly filled with believers. As I looked to the north, I saw the line of people sometimes four abreast coming across the bridge toward the stadium. They kept coming, and kept coming for nearly two hours. A few were still coming when we opened with prayer at 10:00 a.m.
The first act of repentance was to repent for not respecting those in authority over us from governmental leaders to parents. Next we prayed for President Bush, his family, the Vice-President, the Legislative, and the Judicial Branches of our government. We asked for wisdom, protection, etc. We also prayed for our military leaders and our men and women in the service. We asked for forgiveness for the abortion of millions of babies and for the Lord to give President Bush the opportunity of appointing one more conservative, constructionist, God fearing Supreme Court Judge that could help overturn Roe v. Wade, and end abortion in our land once and for all.
Senator Sam Brownback from Kansas, as a representative of our Federal government, then acknowledged our betrayal to the First Nation Chiefs and asked their forgiveness. They forgave our government for our treatment of them. Then we all prayed. After this we worshiped the Lord.
There was repentance given toward the African Americans, the Hispanics, etc. led by Sam Brownback. They forgave us. We prayed and worshiped.
A woman confessed her abortion of her baby and asked forgiveness for all the women who had aborted their babies. She was forgiven. We all prayed. We gathered in small groups of three to six, and repented, and prayed. Then we rejoiced and praised.
Will Ford confessed that about twenty years ago, he had encouraged the mother of his child to abort their baby rather than face the consequences of their actions. He was a Christian at the time. Then about ten years ago, he almost had a nervous breakdown missing that unborn child and repenting of what he had done. He led men In repentance who had counseled others to seek abortion, who had paid for abortions, or who had abandoned the mothers who were pregnant. Tears of repentance flowed down our faces as we broke into small groups to repent and pray.
We repented that as Christians we had not opened our homes to unwed mothers during their time of need. We repented for not being willing to adopt them and bring them up in homes of love.
A young lady repented of her generation’s involvement with sorcery, i.e., Harry Potter, etc.
This repentance went on all day from 10:00 a.m. until late in the evening. It was very hot and we had to be admonished to go and buy water to drink from the concession stands inside and cool off. There were several that had to be taken to the hospital for heat exhaustion. We would go inside and buy water, and then return to our places. They had set up three tents at one end of the stadium where you could receive healing prayer or a prophetic word. The crowds would ebb and tide, but the people stayed until the cause was accomplished.
At about 9:00 p.m. three hundred men dressed in army camouflage entered the stadium to the sound of seven shoffars. The sea of people on the stadium floor were on each side of the march. When they came to a halt in front of the stand at front, we all rattled our keys like the sound of swords being drawn for battle. Our position shifted from being on the defense to being on the offense against the enemies of our LORD. The Lion of Judah roared! A great shout of victory went up in the stadium!
We were encouraged to fast T.V. for the next 21 days and to continue to press in until victory was experienced in our lives, our communities, our nation.
The next Call is to be in Las Vegas in September. It is going to Detroit, Chicago, etc. We will culminate with a solemn assembly in Washington, D.C. at The Mall on 8-8-08. Please be praying continually for these holy convocations and for the ending of abortion in our nation.
God T.V. was gracious to broadcast The Call to 200 nations at no charge. Pray for a blessing on the word that went forth, God T.V., and that other nations will follow suit.
This was a moment in our history when a door for massive change was opened. Mike Bickle at IHOP is starting a new school this August for one thousand young men and women from 18-29 years of age to train a generation ... . Married couples can apply also. If they select a second year of training they will be invited to join the Call’s Strike Team. Organized assault is being prepared to take back what has been stolen from us by our enemy. If you want more information you can visit www.thecall.com and read all about it.
More than anything we became abandoned for a short period of time to our Bridegroom, our Lord Jesus, and His purposes for His Bride. We got rid of the blemishes, the spots and wrinkles, and shone with purity for our Bridegroom. It was glorious, it was marvelous, it was wonderful, amazing! My heart was rekindled with love for my Bridegroom, King Jesus. I hope this has rekindled in you a fire for Him as it has in me.
Your servant and sister in Him,
Hey, please read the last post by Joya. A good account of what took place at the Call.
08-08-08 on the mall in DC- I plan to be there!
Great report, Joya, “Thanks” for posting it.
And, “Thanks”, Quix, for the ping.
I continue to labor in prayer for the fruit of this work to be made manifest.
Thank you and God bless you. Amen to lasting fruit from The Call, for those who attended and for the United States.
In 1995 I asked the Lord to give me a word for America and he said I will give it to you as you go along your journey. When I was in the UK one morning while I was praying the Lord gave me Genesis chapter 18 and chapter 19. He said Read them and pray through them for America. I read them. You know the story how the three angels came to Abraham. He cooked for them and ate and then they talked about the coming of Isaac and then they talked about Sodom and Gomorrah and said they were going down to see the sin because it has reached up to the Lord. And how Abraham stood before the Lord and interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah. Then chapter 19 is how Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. I said, Lord, what exactly should I pray? And I got no further direction.
I went to a conference organized by a preacher that I went to see in Israel. This time the conference was in Chicago. I went to Chicago and the first night I was there I tried to pray and couldnt pray. I thought maybe it is because I am so tired. The second day I tried to pray and I couldnt pray. It was like I was just speaking in the air to myself or like my words were coming back to me. So I said, O.K. Maybe I will pray later in the night when I come back. I went to the conference, came back in the night and tried to pray, I couldnt pray. Next morning, very early before morning I got up, got before the Lord, tried to worship, tried to pray, tried to do everything I normally do to come into the presence of the Lord and I couldnt. And I began to cry and I said, Lord, what have I done to close me out? and the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me and said Its not about you. He said The city; there are layers and layers and layers of darkness over this city over the land and its because of that, that you cannot break through. I said But Lord, what do I do? And He said Pray through, pray through. I am looking for a man who will stand in the gap for this land that I may not destroy it. And I didnt understand, so I told my roommate who was a Kenyan pastor. We started praying and praying and praying. I left Chicago and came to Oklahoma and then as I was praying one morning around 5am I saw a vision. This is what I saw in the vision:
I saw before me a pillar, a white clay pillar, with blue flowers around it made of china clay. It was about one meter high and on top of this was a very light plate, about this size, it was light brown in color and on top of the platter was a cake. Beautiful, beautiful round cake. It was made like a castle, so beautiful. I was looking at the cake and the pillar and admiring it all and then it began to move away from me. The farther it went the larger it became and the pillar changed from a pillar into a hill like a very high hill. The plate disappeared and the cake became a city on top of a hill and there was a great light coming out of this city. Very bright and beautiful. And as I looked at it I marveled at the beauty. And then a voice spoke to me from behind and said This is the destiny of America, a city on a hill to give forth light to the nations and to proclaim the name of the Lord. It was like, Oh my God, Oh my God. It was so glorious it was nothing I can compare within the natural. It was so beautiful so glorious. And after a pause the voice said, But America has turned away from her destiny, America has rejected her destiny. And as I was watching it began to come back, come back and again turned into a pillar, into a plate and into a cake. By this time I focused on the pillar and I saw cracks in the pillar. And as I watched the cracks began to get bigger and bigger and my heart was gripped with panic. I dont know why but I was really gripped with a real fear and I began to say Oh no, its going to break, its going to break and the word just went through my heart that says When the foundations have been broken what should the righteous do? I had no answer. It was continuing and there was a very slight tremor going through and the pillar was shaking and the cracks were increasing and I was shouting No, its going to break! And it broke. When it broke it fell down and the plate broke into two parts. One part fell this way, one part fell that way and the cake fell down and broke into pieces, it was like they were small pieces and smaller pieces and then it was like powder. The light remained shining in the air for a moment and then began to die out. And it was total darkness. And the vision disappeared. I came back to myself and I saw that my whole body was trembling, tears were flowing, I was sobbing and I was wondering what was the meaning of this. A voice spoke to me and said I am looking for a man who will stand in the gap on behalf of this land but I have found none. It went. I prayed and I prayed and I pleaded and I pleaded and I went to bed. The next day I said, But Lord, how can you say there is no man standing in the gap in America. This is where all the great prayer movements come from. This is where all the great preachers have been coming to the nations encouraging us. The books that we read, this is where it all comes from. And the Spirit of the Lord said to me, The cry of sin in the land is louder than the cry of prayer, I am looking for a people that will stand in the gap for this nation, to cry out.
When I was in Oklahoma I was speaking to some churches as they would open up. I stayed there for about three weeks. I didnt know how to pray sincerely. There were nights I would spend the whole night on the floor. I was staying in a house in a very small room by a stable with horses. One morning the Lord showed me three things. I was crying unto the Lord saying, Please . . . how do I pray, how do I pray? He said, Three waves of judgment are about to hit this nation. The first one is going to be a judgement against the spirit of mammon. Because money has become a god to My people and has replaced My place, I am going to bring judgement on the spirit of mammon in this land. I am going to bring a second judgment that is going to be against the pride, the pride of human achievement, the spirit of I can do it, we can do it ourselves, we dont need God. I am going to break the pride of human achievement until the time will come when men will know there is a higher power than themselves. The third judgment is going to come against the excesses of human liberties where men have demanded liberties beyond the boundaries of My standard. My hand is still holding back the consequences of their choices, but a day is coming when My hand shall be removed and the consequences of their choices will come like a flood upon them. Then everything they yearned for is going to bear fruit and then they will know that My standard has got life and the ways of the world are only death. The sin of this land has reached up to Me like the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah reached up to me and I have come down and I am looking for a person to stand before me, just as Abraham stood before me. I am looking for people to stand and cry out for this nation. I was so shaken, I was not eating, my house were puzzled what to do with me. I went preaching in one of the churches and I just shared, I didnt preach, I just shared what I was getting from the Lord, what I was hearing and even as I stood there, my whole body was trembling and as I was speaking the Spirit of the Lord just came upon me and went into deep detail, just about one judgment and what He was going to do with the money. As it continued and continued the whole congregation broke out into tears sobbing and weeping and people fell on the ground and I couldnt preach any more so I got down on my face and began to pray. And the Lord said to me, They are not praying in repentance, they are praying in anger. How can I touch everything they have worked for, how can I be a just God and do this to them? How can I be a loving God and do this to them, destroy everything their life is about? And that broke me. I cried and cried and cried. I went back home, I didnt speak to anybody went back to the room and said Lord, is this the last word you have for this land, is there no hope for this land? He said, Pray for the remnant that it shall be big, if the remnant shall rise up and call upon me and live their lives before me I will have mercy on this land. I am not through with America, My best is not yet for America. I still want to raise this nation to reach its fullness of its destiny and Ill use it for my glory if my people will stand before me and pray.
I came back to the USA in 1999 and the Lord showed me a window in the spirit. I was praying and we were going through New England praying and he said the window of opportunity and grace has been opened over the land, pray. I spoke to people but he didnt say to them but he said, pray, pray that the remnant would rise up and take their position, pray that they will be people who will hear the call of the Lord to stand in the gap and take their position. And thats what we have been doing, just praying for that. When 9/11 happened, I was here. I arrived on 9/10 and I was asking the Lord what is the key to opening up nations which seem so bound, the system is so closed we seem to be going down, down, down. Where is the hope? The word He gave me was Speak to my people and say this is the call of the hour whether they will hear or not. Say to them, Thus says the Lord, Set yourselves apart for me that I may work deeply in your lives, I will make you the people I can use to change this land. He said, Anywhere you go there are men and women I have been speaking to, calling them, set yourselves apart for me, and they have been procrastinating, putting it off for one reason or another, excusing themselves for one reason or another. He said Tell them the period of grace is running out. Now, there are things I cant even explain theologically but I just want to say them as I heard them. This particular time I have not come, not because of an invitation; I came because of a very direct call. It said to me, go and call out those who hear my call to be set apart and what I told you, what Ive shown you, share and equip.
What does it mean to pass the period of grace? The time came when no preaching, no teaching, no prophesying, no prayer could change the situation. Eli heard about his children . . . what they were doing. He said, I hear this from all Israel. It was not a secret, it was going out and the nation was talking about it. The morality of the children the depravity of the house of the Lord. So Eli called them, he spoke to them he preached to them. They did not change. There comes a moment when sin has gone so far no preaching changes it. We are living in these days today where mens hearts have been hardened to the preaching of the Gospel. Even when it comes so direct that a person says that is for me, only God can say that, that way when I am here. And yet there is no power to change, there is no power to put a stop to the things we know are happening and say, Lord, I turn to seek your face. There are so many people today who hear, who read, who see and they hear that in the voice of the Lord, the preaching and the teaching and it doesnt change them anymore. There is no power to change.
How many times today is this happening? The prophetic word comes forth so clear, so direct, we know God has spoken, only God could have said that. We hear the word and say Sure, thats God. It is so sad this is where we are and yet we do not change, yet we do not have the power to let everything down and cry out like dying men, like the virgin that has lost the man of her youth. God said Drop everything, the time has come to seek the lord until he should come and sow and rain righteousness unto us. Drop everything, be desperate, cry out. We know all this. We quote it to one another, we encourage one another with it, we speak about it in prayer conferences and yet there is no strength. When 9/11 happened there was a little awakening and there was activity in seeking God. But soon we die down, thats what happens. When there is no inward flame that comes alive, its all outward activity.
The little boy Samuels life was different. His whole life was lived in the presence of the Ark of the Lord. He spent his time in the presence of the Lord. Every time the scripture speaks about the depravity of the land scripture says, But the boy Samuel grew up in the presence of the Lord. Grew up in favor before God and before men. Every time this young man, although the environment was dirty and dark he chose to set himself apart for God. It was not easy, it would have been easier to go with peer pressure, to go with everything that was being done. The people in the temple had set an example that was so easy to go by, he did not choose to follow that example . . . he set himself apart for God.
God is patient and is willing to wait until we learn to how respond to Him right. And when Samuel responded right, the Lord spoke. What did He speak? He spoke judgment. Todays church, especially in America, hates the word judgment, hates the word, it hates to think God has got a right to judge sin. Today we have removed that right from Him because of grace. But I want to say to you is He still a just God, if He will reward the righteous and the unrighteous the same way. If He is such a loving God, will He give the righteous and the wicked the same reward? He is a righteous God and that is His character from A to Z and it is His right to judge sin. He spoke judgment over the house of Eli, He said everything that was prophesied will happen to him and it is coming soon. And Eli knew that God had spoken to Samuel. Eli said to Samuel, Tell me and Samuel poured it out. What did Eli say? He is God. Let Him do what He wants. Beloved, when we reach the place where even when God speaks directly to us and we have no power to repent and we say He is God. Sure, He is a loving God, sure He is a sovereign God, let Him do what He wants at the end of the day, I know he loves me I know He cant destroy me I am His, I am His priest.
Thats what we are today. Thats the church we have today. A church that hears it and immediately we want to raise a defense and say God cannot do that, He is loving, He is sovereign, He is for us, we are His people, His redeemed people, so we can go on the way we want we can allow things to fall apart. When the foundations are being broken what should the righteous do? Should they lay back and say we know God is for us, surely no, and eventually it happened. The day came when the judgment struck. In one day the Ark of the Lord was captured in war. Elis two sons died in war. Israel was defeated and thousands died in war and they ran in disarray. And when the messenger came back home to Eli he said, We have lost it and your sons are dead and Eli said, What about the Ark of the Lord? And he said Its captured. Eli fell backwards and broke his neck and died that very moment and his daughter-in-law heard that her husband had died and immediately she went into labor, gave birth to a son and bled to death. As she was dying she said Call him Ichabod. The glory of God has departed from us. But the boy Samuel, because he set himself apart, God came to him and his word began to come to Israel. Israel was filled with the Word of God and God moved again in the land of Israel. Beloved, I come to you in humility but I come as a messenger of the Lord and this is the message I bring to you. No amount of prayer is going to change America until we set ourselves apart for Him.
A lot of prayer is going out from this nation unto the heavens from the mind-set of the land, from the opinions of the land. The land has come so far away from God. The church has moved goalposts every now and then and most people are praying with genuine hearts and willing hearts, they really want to see God move. But they are unaware that a lot of the attitudes with which they approach God come from the system and come from the land, the understanding of the mind of the man. If God were to honor prayer and give revival in His fullness and pour out His spirit, He would be conforming the wrong attitudes, the wrong notions and values that have been adopted in this land. He would be denying His standard just as many have denied that standard of His Word. If He were to pour out His Spirit in this land today he would be saying Its O.K., I can lower My levels to what you have chosen to go with. Because He is a loving God He will not do that. Hes not calling for more prayer, more prayer. God is calling for a people who will step out and say Lord, I choose your way from the ways of America, I choose your standards from the standards we have laid, I choose to go back and rediscover the will of God according to the Word of God and this is what God is calling. And the Lord is saying If you begin to seek you will be amazed how far the ways of men are from the ways of the Lord. And how willing and yearning He is to pour out His Spirit if only He would find a people that would set themselves apart; not only to pray, not only to fast, but to go back and rebuild the wall of the Lord. He said, I am looking for a man who would rebuild the wall and stand in the gap before me on behalf of the land. This is two different things, one is to rebuild the wall. What is the wall? When a city has its walls broken down there are no standards. Anything goes, anything can come in anything can go out. There is no break, there is no sifting, there is no saying That cant go, anything goes.
Beloved, there are words God has given to us in the Bible that says If you will do this, this will not come upon you. If you will do this I will fulfill that. You dont even have to ask me. Just keep the wall of my Word around your life. I will be true to my Word.
The Word says in Ecclesiastes chapter 10, verse 8: When a man breaks down his wall he shall be bitten by a serpent. Thats the Word of God. When you break down your wall you will be bitten by a serpent. And if you break down the wall of My Word, the wall of My standards and you choose to choose your own right and wrong, then you have your own responsibility to keep your own security and your own safety. But if you want me to take care of it, it must be on My standards. Beloved this is the call of the Lord. This is what I carry as a message and as a messenger of the Lord.
The politics we are experiencing today, the Middle East and everything, is nothing else but the God of Heaven and earth has put the biggest superpower and the nation of Israel in the arena and is saying to the nations of the world, Watch what I am doing. God is saying to the nation of America, Choose. I can use you in revival, I can use you in judgment, whichever way I will fulfill my purposes to the nations. This is the call. Will you consider what it means to be set apart unto the Lord, what it means to break away from the system, what it means to reject the standards of the land, to choose the standards of the Lord? What it means to empty ourselves and die to everything we think we are and to take on the identity that God has called us unto? May God help us.
FROM THE LORD, 7/27/2007, TO A WOMAN IN TEXAS.
Having been awakened during the fourth watch of the night, the Lord spoke the following to me. If you have received a similar word or have confirmation Id appreciate knowing.
WORD RECEIVED 7-27-07
Many are the words Ive spoken to you in the past; many will be the words in the future. But hear and proclaim this: I, the Lord, am now going forth, walking the earth. I am looking for those who sigh and groan and weep for Jerusalem, for My people and for righteousness on the earth. I am not delegating this work to the angels. I am personally visiting those who mourn for justice and for My righteousness in the affairs of men. I am visiting individuals who know the season and understand the times.
Many are My people, both Jew and Gentile. But many do not know the season. They are ignorant. But those who do know, who are aware, I will give even greater discernment. I will bind you together with spiritual cords that you may know each other. This is a time to connect with each other, with like-minded people, people who are spiritual sons of Isaacar.
Do not consider the days as few in number. This visitation will be a quick work. Each will know when I visit them for their hearts will burn with white-hot zeal for My word and purposes. Earthly concerns will become secondary, priorities and schedules changed. Trust will increase and insight gained. You will not ask what to do; you will know what to do. The one who hesitates and does not act will loose My gift of zeal and I will no longer be able to use them for My great and mighty exploits. Watch and see.
My army will arise and march forth in unexpected ways using methods unknown in the past and by the enemy. I am about to do a new thing with those of My people who are watching, waiting and groaning for the redemption of Israel and for righteousness and justice. Watch and see. But let your watching be active for you must gird up your loins for battle, for warfare, for rest and peace. Yes, you will experience all four at the same time. Those who know the times have already been trained to rest while warring, to have peace in the midst of a battle. My warriors not only have weapons that are not carnal, they have abilities that cannot be replicated by Satan. While his people are in frenzy, Mine sleep in peace. Mine walk in calm deliberateness. Mine go forward with and without the understanding of those around them.
Print this out. Publish it abroad. Tell My people to get ready for their own personal visitation. It is not too late for some to become a son of Isaachar. But some will have to scramble to be included by throwing off the spiritual laziness and narrow vision of the past. All must count the cost. The choice is simple: be useful to Me or suffer the physical fate of the world, having only the hope of eternity with Me. You say, Thats not much of a choice. It has always been this way. Sell out to Me or just get through life. Im not talking about eternity here; Im talking about the choice to make your life count - or not.
My 16 year old son and I did the road trip. We left Coral Springs, Florida around 9am Friday 07/06/07 and got to Nashville around 11pm. The day was awesome, no commercialization, t-shirt sales, trincket sales, nothing. We ewent to DC for the Promise Keepers event when he was around 7 and now this, we will be going to DC for the next The Call in 08/08/08. We had a great time of talking and praying and worshiping going up and back. We got back home aound 11am 07/08/07
