Dave Kubal: Truth and Justice in 2023
IFA President and CEO Dave Kubal is calling intercessors to pray that 2023 would be the year of truth and justice. Kubal highlighted three situations the Lord used to show him the prophetic prayer direction: the miracle of Twitter and how it now protects free speech; how Twitter’s new policies have revealed proof that there were government agencies that were weaponized against the freedoms of America; and, finally, how this resulted in the spiritual battle for the Speaker of the House.
The fight for the Speaker’s gavel was a manifestation of the spiritual battle in the heavenlies, Kubal shared on IFA’s First Friday call on Jan. 6, 2023 — an auspicious date, perhaps. The 15 rounds of votes represented hours of discussions, agreements, and deliberations, ultimately creating an environment in which justice can be served against wrongdoers.
At the time of the webcast, the outcome was still unsettled. Kubal urged intercessors to pray Proverbs 21:15 over the situation and throughout the year, “When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.” About Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, Kubal said:
For years we’ve been praying for the protection of free speech. And the answer to our prayers is this: The richest man in the world purchased the largest communication system in the world, with one purpose — to protect free speech. This is grand answered prayer!
Musk has restored to the platform many voices — including many Christian and conservative ones — that had been censored, harassed, and banned by former Twitter leadership and employees. Beyond that, Musk’s release of internal Twitter documents revealed a webbing and wide-spread conspiracy to suppress debate on many critically important issues. Kubal said:
As [Musk has] come into leadership of Twitter, it has been clearly shown through exhaustive investigation — something that we intercessors discerned — that government agencies have been weaponized against America and our personal freedoms. Twitter would check with the FBI, the NSA, and a few different agencies on what to say about certain issues over these past couple of years, whether it was related to the Russiagate or Russia influence in our election or the pandemic. They censored truthful information, while emphasizing information that was known to be false and misleading.
Musk also revealed many Twitter executives were former employees of the FBI and other government agencies who reported back to their agencies much of what they learned at the social media giant. Kubal said, “Now this is no longer conspiracy theory. Those of us who see into the spiritual realm and see the spiritual battles are not surprised by what has been uncovered.“
Most important, Kubal said the earthly battle over the Speaker of the House reflected the spiritual battle over America’s future. Musk’s revelations from Twitter emails and other internal communications prove key government agencies are actively warring against the freedoms of American citizens, according to Kubal. He said the prolonged negotiations over the vote for the Speaker of the House hinged on the insistence of the most conservative members that certain processes and procedures must be put in place to ensure not only the truth be revealed, but also that justice is served.
Kubal shared from much of his insider knowledge and many conversations with people on Capitol Hill:
…The list of items that the House Freedom Caucus have insisted upon and Congressman McCarthy has agreed to, as of [Jan. 5], would ensure for a more effective process, more effective procedures to investigate the wrongdoings of our government. This is what I believe is really going on in the spiritual realm, and the year of 2023. I’m calling the IFA community to pray that this would be a year of truth and justice. We need to have effective congressional investigations into government corruption.
Among the concessions Representative Kevin McCarthy made in his quest for the office of Speaker of the House:
- Two new panels to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 virus and the weaponization of government agencies against Americans’ freedoms.
- Key changes to the rules governing the business of the House.
- More representation of conservatives on key House committees, including the Rules Committee.
- A commitment to tie spending cuts to a debt-ceiling increase.
- A process easing amendment of individual spending bills.
Kubal was careful not to label any one person or group of people as evil; the battle, as intercessors know, is not against humans but against the demonic forces arrayed against Christ and His servant America.
Let’s join in Kubal’s prayer as we launch our year of praying for truth and justice:
Lord, we pray Proverbs 21:15. ”When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous, but terror to the evildoer.”
We pray into the spiritual battle that is going on before our very eyes. We realize what is at stake is justice. What is at stake is terror being brought to those who bring evil to our nation. We know that what is at stake is joy to the righteous because we know justice is served.
We humbly ask You to make 2023 a year of truth and justice. We ask You to move. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to pray and participate in shaping history through prayer and fasting. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
