I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for Your mercy and grace. Thank You for the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all sin and unrighteousness. We thank You that this blood can be applied, not only to an individual, but to a nation.
Reading Time: 5 minutes

In 2007, I went through a several week season in which the spiritual warfare around me escalated exponentially. It is hard to explain but it felt like I was in a cloud of darkness and oppression. The attack was daily and relentless; it was hard to think and very difficult to sleep. I had to resist this attack diligently in order to keep from becoming overwhelmed.

I called a prophet and friend, Chuck Pierce, and asked if he had any prophetic discernment as to what this was all about. He immediately prophesied to me, “Yes. This has to do with your calling to the nation. It is the spirit of Baal. He is the spirit/principality over America. God wants you to learn about this spirit – how it operates, how we can overthrow him – and teach the rest of us.”

I knew that Daniel 10:13-20 and other passages reveal that principalities in satan’s kingdom are assigned to regions. I had no idea until that point in time that Baal was ruling America, let alone that my situation was related to this. I also was confident that through Christ, God has given us authority over all the powers of darkness; we are fully able to resist demonic spirits and keep them from overtaking us personally. However, this was a different situation; it was not about me but the nation. Essentially, I was in intercession, “standing in the gap” (Ezekiel 22:30) for the nation. What I was experiencing and feeling was actually warfare toward America. This began a process of breaking Baal’s influence off of America, a process that God is now taking to its next phase.

When a person or people (nation) “give place to” the devil (Ephesians 4:27) through perversion, shedding innocent blood, idolatry, covenant breaking, and other sins, satan has a legal right to rule and control them until the sin is cleansed. The word “place” in this verse is topos, from which we get topography. It literally means a location, as in a piece of land. Interestingly, it is also a scabbard, a “place” to hang a sword. Figuratively it means “opportunity.” This verse is telling us sin gives ground to satan, a place for his sword, a legal opportunity to steal, kill, and destroy. This has happened in America. Through our sins, we have given place to the devil and his demons, and Baal is the principality in charge of overseeing this authority.

Baal is identified as “the ruler of the demons,” (Matthew 12:24; Beelzebub is another name for Baal). The name Baal means “lord, master, or owner.” As with most of what satan does, taking this name is an attempt to usurp and replace God. Baal was considered the god of fertility, storms, rain, provision, and much more. He was called by several other names in scripture and also in historical accounts. People referred to their gods by different names to represent different facets of their character or activity, just as we do with Yahweh. For example, God is Yahweh Rapha, “the Lord our healer”; He is Yahweh Shalom, ‘The Lord, our peace or well-being.”

As the strongman over America (see Matthew 12:29), much of the evil in our nation, including the shedding of innocent blood (abortion), is caused by Baal’s influence. Most biblical teachers attribute the spirit over abortion to be Molech, but Molech serves under Baal. Baal always goes after the next generation, trying to cut off the extension/extending of God’s covenantal purposes. He is a violent spirit and throughout history has always required human sacrifice. Not only is abortion under Baal’s influence, he is also behind the “cutting” of today’s generation (see 1 Kings 18:28), the vampire and goth movement, and the death culture in general that has so invaded America.

Jezebel, the spirit behind so much immorality and sexual perversion in America, is also under Baal. Baal is the spirit influencing the plethora of divorce and covenant breaking. Even though satan nor his demons are omnipresent, Baal has many spirits working under him, and where there is demonic activity in our nation, he is most likely involved.

Baal was/is called Baal-zephon, meaning “Lord of the north.” This name included his supposed lordship/rule over the seas, winds, winter, and more. We discussed this in a previous post and I will mention it again tomorrow. He was/is called Baal-hamon, meaning “lord of wealth or abundance.” People considered him their provider and worshiped him in order to receive prosperity or wealth. (The symbol of Baal-hamon was a bull; yep, as in Wall Street’s symbol of prosperity.)

There are many more names and traits associated with Baal; however, my purpose in today and tomorrow’s posts is not to teach on him, per se. It is to point out that America is in the process of being delivered from this spirit’s control; and also to reveal where we are in the process. This brings me to the last name of Baal I will mention, though there are numerous others. Baal-berith means “the lord of the covenant.” The Hebrew word baal actually means “husband” or “marriage.” The spirit of Baal always attempted to cause Israel to “divorce” or break covenant with God and “marry” or align with Him. Look at the words of Hosea regarding Israel’s marriage covenant with Yahweh.

Therefore, behold, I am going to persuade her, bring her into the wilderness, and speak kindly to her…And she will respond there as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she went up from the land of Egypt. And it will come about on that day, declares the Lord, that you will call Me “my husband” and no longer call Me “my Baal.” For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, so that they will no longer be mentioned by their names…I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in favor and in compassion, and I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord. (Hosea 2:14-20)

After God showed me these things and more in 2007, I began teaching on how America had broken covenant with the Lord, just as Israel did on numerous occasions, and was now “married” to Baal. To see God’s favor and blessing return, we would have to “divorce” Baal by repenting of our sins, and return to covenant with (“remarry”) the Lord. This was the theme of a national prayer event in 2007, hosted by Lou Engle. After this, intercessors in every state went to key places where corporate repentance needed to occur, and made decrees of divorcement to Baal and remarriage to Yahweh.

I will tell you about this 2007 event in [tomorrow’s] post. The information is extremely important because God is bringing America into another phase of deliverance from Baal’s hold, and re-covenanting us to Him once again.

Pray with me:

Father, we thank You for Your mercy and grace. Thank You for the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all sin and unrighteousness. We thank You that this blood can be applied, not only to an individual, but to a nation.

America has rejected You. We have broken covenant with You and aligned ourselves with Baal. And we are paying a great price for this: violence, bloodshed, the deterioration of families and so much more. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirlwind (see Hosea 8:7).

But for the past 25 years, You have led intercessors to pray prayers of repentance that would now total in the millions, filling the bowls of heaven. And You are a gracious God that hears those prayers – it still works. Through many prophetic voices You have said You are now going to restore and heal this land through a great revival. We ask You for this, Lord. We ask for a complete divorce from Baal and a remarriage to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen

Our decree:

We decree that God, in His mercy, is delivering America from our covenant with Baal and restoring us to Himself.

“Through many prophetic voices You have said You are now going to restore and heal this land through a great revival.”
Where does God say this?? Sounds like the raving of false prophets to me, Jeremiah 6:14 and 8:11. Did Gabriel come to them, as he did to Daniel as he prayed for Jerusalem in sackcloth and ashes? (Daniel Ch.9). Jerusalem still suffered punishment for 70 years, and showed little (national) remorse. Will this be America’s fate. Nobody can foretell the future, but we have it coming, and when you say “God has said He is now going to restore and heal this land through a great revival” and it doesn’t happen, you will have turned many people away from Christ.
Better to preach the Gospel of forgiveness through Baptism into Christ, and teach them to confess these sins, private and public, bringing the nation to repentance. Not a lot of confidence that you can do that, though.

Baal is the ruler over all nations.

Diane and Jaqueline, Thank for your “Berean” interchange of questioning and testing and searching the scriptures for answers. Very refreshing to see your informative and loving exchange in these days of divisive and rude arguments. I commend you both for following God’s ways of communicating. You are like stars shining in the universe! (Philippians 2:14-15, 1 Thessalonians 5:19-24, Acts 17:10-12)

“You have led intercessors to pray prayers of repentance that would now total in the millions, filling the bowls of heaven.” (quoted from above)

When He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Revelation 5:8

And the angel took the censer, and filled it from the fire of the altar, and cast it to the earth; and there were thunders, and rumblings, and flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. Revelation 8:5

Amen to this message! PRAY, PRAY, PRAY people and fill those bowls!

Jonah inspired Nineveh to repent and they were saved. That was without the explicit blood of Jesus.

I do not understand how the saving blood of Jesus can be applied to a nation. Each individual person has to accept Jesus on their own.

    But God is Lord of the nations and many times the nations are called to repent, and when they do the blood is applied to them too. There is no revival with out repentance.

The Lord has been speaking to me about His Bride quite a bit lately.
This is one of the scriptures that He has called my attention to. I agree with Dutch Sheets & that I have experienced & am seeing so many believers that He has led into the wilderness in this season. He is calling us to Himself & preparing His bride to be that bride that is without spot or wrinkle. He told me to read prov. 31 & He said “this is what my bride will look like”. I believe that He is preparing us to rule & reign with Him & (Hab.2:14) He will fill the earth with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea through His Church, the bride of Christ. May we turn from all our wisdom & opinions & take His yoke that He offers to us, to learn from His gentle & humble heart. A grace is coming to the Church as we hear His knocking & open up our hearts to allow Him full access, to remove the old leaven for He is doing a new thing!

The Lord is saying this morning, “clean out the entire military establishment in the United States with this message.”
See to your own covenant and then give 15….

    I had to look some up. Mostly it deals with Israel as a nation, but not all. I will give you the references so you can look them up in your own version of the Bible. I use the King James. Psalm 147:1-20 Isa:26:1-5
    Jer.18:8 26:12-13 Eze. 14:6-11 18:30-32 Joel 2:11-18 Rev. 2:1-5, and 2:16 Jonah 3:1-10 These few references are dealing with Israel, nations, church, groups. Jesus blood is for everyone, everywhere, for all times. People were saved in the Old Testament the same as in the New Testament, by faith believing in God and His salvation. The sacrifices did not save them, they just pointed to the fact that blood had to be shed for there to be salvation. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to do a study on this. God bless you

Habakkuk 1:2, 2:3-4, 2:8, 14, 3:12-13, 3;16, 18-19.
1:2 How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save.
2:3-4 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and not delay. See, he is puffed up; his desires are not upright — but the righteous will live by faith.
2:8 Because you have plundered many nations, the people who are left will plunder you.
2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the GLORY of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
3:12-13 In wrath you strode through the earth and in anger you threshed the nations. You came out to deliver your people, to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness you stripped him from head to foot.
3:16 Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity to come in the nation invading us.
3:18-19 ..yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in GOD my SAVIOR. The sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on heights.

Standing in agreement with Dutch Sheets and John Bulinda. Binding the demons and casting them into the everlasting Abyss. In JESUS NAME. 🙏PRAYING. AMEN

We declare and decree, in Jesus powerful name, the ears be opened to hear and they eyes be open to see God’s truth! There shall be an increase of light and the enemies shall bow to the name of Jesus!
Because of prayer and God’s love, many shall repent. There is a process, in this process people are becoming hungry & thirsty for the living water, for a true God that will not fail them.

Keep praying, diligently!
The armies of the Lord are rising up in prayer and fasting.
They Bride of Christ, is coming together into greater unity.

On July 2-4, 2021 the LORD sent me and my beloved wife to Moses Lake in Eastern Washington for three days Prayer and Repentance for the USA to return to God through Humility and Seeking the True God who this great nation entered into Divine covenant at its Birth as a Nation under God.

Ten days later on July 14-16, the LORD sent me and My wife to Olympia, the State Capitol of Washington in Pacific Northwest for a special Prayer event “Awakening Intercessors”
organized at Gateway Church with The Eagles Wings Intercessory Team (who Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets Prophesied would gather at Space Needles with First Natives in Seattle WA, where I joined them early this year to Blow the Shofar/Trumpet to fulfill this Prophecy).

July 4th 2021 was very significant for this great nation since it marked 245 years since America was birthed as a nation under Judeo Christian Principles.

As my wife and I lifted America to the LORD, He assured us that He was not done with America yet and the call upon our lives when we left our Motherland Africa to Repent and Intercede for the USA based on Jeremiah 6:16-17 would finally bear fruit.

On July 24th 2021, my wife and I will be Part of “The Encounter “ Meeting in Federal Way WA for a Prophetic art, Worship, Soaking, Poetry in this encounter with the Holy Spirit.

I fully concur with Dutch Sheets Message that America will be Restored to Holiness through a Mighty Revival that is the result of Laboring in the Spirit by Intercessors and Prayer Generals.

Currently there is another Team of Intercessors Praying and Repenting for 28Days since July 4th 2021 that I am also part of and we are looking forward to one of the greatest Awakenings since the Welsh, Scotland, Azusa Street combined.

The Ahab and Jezebel spirit will be completely torn up in pieces and the Spirit of Righteousness and Judgment released in America and Other Nations of the World.

Thank You Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce for your faithful
Watch in your 50 State Tour that was followed by Franklin Graham that ended in 2018.

Our Salvation is indeed closer than when we first believed and the Watchmen on the Walls Prayer Generals will soon rejoice for their answered Prayers…Isaiah 62:6-7.

Our Labor in the LORD has not been in vain. Revival is at our door.

Praise THE LORD.

      We will not yield to the enemy until America and the Nations turn to the True LORD, Jesus Christ (Yeshua).

      We are Watchmen on the Walls and the Fire will not go out. Leviticus 6:12-13.
