We are in an unprecedented times that will be remembered for decades. In the course of a week, grocery stores have emptied, the market has sunk, and we are all stuck in our homes.
We had a prayer call this week with a good friend of ours, Jody Wood (click this link to watch the video). She described how we are in the middle of a global shaking where Jesus is resetting the foundation of nations. She injected our hearts with great hope and expectation–God is in charge and is accomplishing great things during this global shaking. His shaking will destroy that which is not of Him. His shaking will provide the environment for His foundations to flourish.
As we were praying, Utah had a 5.7 magnitude earthquake that literally shook the foundations of that state. You probably are aware the headquarters of the Mormon church is in Salt Lake City, Utah. On the top of the building is a statue of the “angel” Moroni. Before the earthquake, this statue had a trumpet in its hand, indicating the “gospel” message of the Mormon church, based on the misuse of the faulty foundation of Revelation 14:6.
About the time we were praying about the shaking and tearing down of that which is false, the symbol of a false gospel – the trumpet – was destroyed. This should give us great hope.
As this week progressed, it became clear that God was calling a global pause. Never before in the history of the world has there been an event that has caused humankind to stop what they are doing the way the coronavirus has. As we were preparing for a prayer call on Friday morning, I walked past the TV monitor we have in our office that we use to keep up to the minute with news. On the screen was Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York presenting his plan to deal with the crisis, which he calls “Pause Provisions.”
One of IFA’s Board Members, Jeremy Story, then led us through a time of prayer based upon a prophetic word he had about God causing much of humanity to stop and pause. He mentioned that God has prepared us for this moment—we just need to press in and recognize what God is doing.
The Lord is speaking clearly that through the shakings that He is causing us to “Be still and know I am God.” (Ps 46:10). We can choose to be stressed out or we can choose to realize God is utilizing the shakings. But, we must take advantage of the opportunity to be still.
We at Intercessors for America have been working tirelessly to provide leadership and encouragement in this hour. Without a doubt this episode in American (and world) history will pass and will be remembered for decades. The Church and intercessors have a great opportunity to walk in peace, realizing God is using the shakings and that we need to be still before him in this hour.
