FOUR STEPS OF A COUP D’ETAT: WILL AMERICA LEARN FROM HISTORY?
FOUR STEPS OF A COUP D’ETAT: WILL AMERICA LEARN FROM HISTORY?
If you believe Snopes is an accurate fact-checker, don’t read this article. However, if you are one who seeks to know and understand truth, these four steps of a coup d’état will awaken you to what has been underway in America.
Present-day “fact-checkers” are working hard to deceive the American public from historical facts of past atrocities because they are being re-enacted right now before our eyes. The media’s denial is loud and strong, removing articles from public view branding them as “conspiracy theory,” “goes against our community standards,” “debunked,” and “false,” in regards to history and facts which warn us of what is really happening.
In the midst of all the confusion, the question many ask is, “If all of these ‘fact-checkers’ are saying the same thing, surely they can’t all be wrong?”Yes, they can. Especially when that is their role in the attempted coup to overthrow America. It is an age-old strategy of four important steps.
A coup d’état is a “game of uncertainty where people tend to choose the side they believe most other actors support.” According to author Naunihal Singh, in his book, Seizing Power: The Strategic Logic of Military Coups, it becomes a game of “numbers” to create the illusion that all power and support is on the side of the attempted takeover. As they work to create that illusion, they are simultaneously working to remove all opposition to their plan. This is where we are today.
Step 1. Manipulate Information (Take over the media)
In a coup attempt, this is called the “Coordination Theory,” in which it “is mandatory for the rebels to take over the main TV and radio stations, in order to create a fait [accompli] (The feeling that something has already been accomplished and cannot be changed.)”
We see this strategy in play by liberals who insist that Biden is leading in the polls in numerous battleground states, despite the fact that he hasn’t been out campaigning, he can’t put together a cohesive sentence, and he could barely get a few hundred people to show up to his rallies when he did campaign. Yet we are told daily that polls show Biden winning—via the coup accomplices—the media.
But according to Singh, it’s not enough to take over the media. It is the content of the information delivered which is of paramount importance: “The conspirators do not need to waste time rumbling about their righteousness. Instead, they have to hammer home the idea that they have already won, and that most important actors have already pledged their support for the coup (p.29).”
Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister under Hitler in Germany from 1933-1945 (yes that was his job title) stated, “It would not have been possible for us to take power or to use it in the ways we have without the radio.”
Step 2. Defund the police
Police are always targeted for removal in a coup attempt to remove opposition. This was done in Hitler’s day by his military leader, Hermann Goering, who helped pave the way for Hitler’s success. In 1933, Goering quickly rose through the ranks and set up concentration camps for political opponents to crush any resistance. (Just as we see happening in China today.)
Named Prussian Minister of the Interior and Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian police, he was then able to remove hundreds of officers and thousands of ordinary policemen, replacing them with Sturmabteilung (literally Storm Detachment, the Nazi Party’s original paramilitary wing) and SS, who took over the policing of Berlin.
So why have multiple “news sources,” including Reuters and Politifact, gone on record claiming this is false although it is completely true? They don’t want us to notice the comparison.
Instead, we are told defunding the police is needed for “reform,” tying the action to the politically correct Black Lives Matter and social justice movement. But I believe it has absolutely nothing to do with reforming the police. It has to do with taking them out.
Step 3. De-arm the citizens
Our freedom and right to bear arms have been under attack for years. If citizens have no guns, then resistance to a takeover is gone. While the Democrats work to convince Americans that our society would be “safer” if citizens were forced to hand over their guns, history proves otherwise.
Charles Van Wyk, author of “Shooting Back,” has spoken out to warn others of what he witnessed personally in his country of South Africa as citizens were de-armed and strict gun control measures implemented. Now, 26 years later, South Africa’s crime statistics reveal over 20,000 people murdered last year alone–the highest number the country has ever recorded.
“Gun control precedes genocide,” Wyk stated, and history proves his statement true. According to case studies of major twentieth-century genocide, once gun control became law, minority groups were targeted and murdered by the governments that implemented the laws.
Once “gun-free zones” are in place, they are then able to dominate and control citizens, who have been stripped of their guns and ability to protect themselves:
Step 4. The Removal of Statues and History
Hitler understood the importance of removing statues and with them the history connected to them. In the book Hitler at Home (Yale University Press, 2015), author Despina Stratigakost explains how Hitler ordered the eradication of war memorials in newly occupied Belgian and French towns, which “suggests that the Nazis understood the influence of even modest monuments once they become embedded in a community’s everyday life.”
It is unknown how many WWI memorials were removed or destroyed in Belgium and France through Hitler’s orders, in his effort to recast Germany as the victor of the war.
Fast forward to America, where in the last few months, over 30 statues have been torn down in our nation and even more defaced in an effort to remove history under the guise of racism.
Last month, Speaker Nancy Pelosi ordered portraits of four speakers, Robert M.T. Hunter of Virginia, Howell Cobb of Georgia, James L. Orr of South Carolina and Charles F. Crisp of Georgia, to be removed from the Capitol in what The New York Times referred to as “the latest in a wave of efforts across the country to purge public spaces of historic symbols associated with racism and oppression.”
The media tried to make us see one thing—that all four men were part of the Confederacy. But what they hid from readers was the more important fact that all four of these men were DEMOCRATS.
Another country in which statues were toppled is Venezuela. Formerly one of the most prosperous democracies in Latin America, it is now a poverty-stricken wasteland. Venezuelan political activist Elizabeth Rogliani has warned Americans that we should be concerned about the toppling of statues and attempted erasure of American history.
According to Rogliani, “Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums. I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”
“It’s an attempt to change the identity of the country. That’s my opinion. And, that’s what they did to us,” she said. “Of course, it was different. At that point, they already had taken the government. But, at this point, they’re trying to change the national identity and they’re trying to destroy the system. And, if they get to the government, they’ll do it. They certainly will do it.”
The attempted coup is because President Trump stands in their way. But so do we as intercessors.
It is essential that we pay attention to history—rather than accept the present attempt to remove it. When we don’t learn from history, we are destined to repeat it. And worse, if we ignore the four steps history reveals of past coup attempts, we may find that what was an attempt, has become reality.
Lord, we continue to intercede on behalf of our country, the United States of America. We ask that You would unite us again as a country who honors You. We declare that You are Lord over our nation and that any attempt to remove You or our godly heritage will be exposed and brought down.
Lord, we ask that the spirit of deception which has blinded the eyes of many to what is taking place would be bound and cast down from its high place. We ask the eyes of every American would be opened to see, know, and accept the truth of what is truly happening to overthrow this Republic and our president. We declare that the spirit of fear, which has bound many to their homes and silenced their voices, would be cast out. And we pray that courage would arise, for You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love. and a sound mind.
We cry out to You and ask for angelic forces to come and help fight in the face of this attempted overthrow which seeks to not only remove President Trump, but YOU from our land.
We declare that we will link arms as watchmen. We will stand on the walls of our cities to pray and to warn others. Lord, we ask You for strength, courage, and protection as we fight for the Gospel and for freedom. Lord, please heal our land and show Yourself strong. We need You.

Snopes to be biased toward the “LEFT”. There was an incident I personally witnessed thatsnopes claimed it never occurred, benefitting the Liberal left.
Father, I pray the blinders will be removed before it’s too late. Open the eyes of those who believe the lies of the enemy. Please Father, we need You so. In Jesus name Amen
I have distrusted Snopes for quite a long time now. I distrust them even more than ever before. This article is so “right on” concerning how we are being conceived by the media. I pray each day that we can come out of this nightmare and our country can be saved before it is too late.
God save us!
What a bunch of misinformation
God help us, please!
Thanks for the info.
This is very eye-opening! It appears to be happening before our eyes, but the devil is the Father of lies. We declare that Jesus has the final coup and the final Word! We declare that through faith and action and concerted prayer, the church will lay hold of the Kingdom of God and forcefully advance the Kingdom into the territory of darkness. We declare a new generation rises up with godly values to take their places of influence in our government and all the cultural mountains, bringing revival to those who have ears to hear. We declare that the god of this world cannot blind the minds of unbelievers in this season. We declare that protesters, agitators, Marxists, socialists, anarchists, revisionists will have a Damascus Road experience and meet Jesus in a dramatic way. We declare that those who embrace violent and deceptive ideologies will come out of the darkness into His marvelous light! I declare that God will raise up wealthy conservatives to buy media outlets, such as TV stations, magazines, newspapers, and publishing houses, and replace deceptive media and liberal propaganda with the truth of God. I declare America will be reborn and remade in God’s way, in God’s image, with her divine destiny fully accomplished. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN
It sounds very much like someone is trying to take over control of America. I pray they don’t succeed.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the councel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night…
Truly and seriously, with suplication and repentence cry out to the LORD!
A starting point for America…for all mankind!
Slaves Without Chains ruled by other men’s brains. This precedes the removal of weapons. This precedes making you a bonafide slave. It is conditioning through propaganda by the controllers of the news media. They lull you into complacency taking over your freedom a little bit here and a little bit there. They say our Bill of Rights is old and outdated. The Constitution is no longer needed and is out dated. It is their right to protest, loot, riot, and destroy all that offends them. You do not need the police or law and order, but simple social justice. Soon the babies cry as they die by the millions. Then old folks are shuffled off to die in hell holes called rest homes. Free stuff is never free, it is but bait for your vote little fishy. You are soon hooked and can not escape. The vultures gather for the great feast to come. The dogs quarrel over the spoils of war. The drum beat is faint, but growing louder. They are coming for you!
I am disappointed in this article because I don’t believe it lives up to the standards IFA states in its Mission Statement. One of the bullet points in your mission statement is: Effective intercession requires a prophetic perspective, hearing the voice of the Lord through the leading of the Holy Spirit, coupled with vetted, strategic information, never presented in a sensational manner.
Sensational is defined as: “presenting information in a way that is intended to provoke public interest and excitement, at the expense of accuracy.”
Do the intercessors at IFA truly believe that there is a coup underway in the US? The definition of a coup is:a sudden, violent and illegal seizure of power from a government.” Using the word “coup” to describe what is happening in the US right now is not accurate. There is no group attempting to violently and illegally seize power. This article does not seem interested in presenting facts about what is happening in our country for the sake of informed prayer. Instead, it is attempting to instill fear in order to strengthen conservative political ideology among Christians.
I’m a victim of communism and your comment reminds me of the words “For lack of knowlege my people perish”.
Please educate yourself. The analysis is 100% accurate!
And may God strengthen his Christian soldiers and may he also put the truth of what is happening as this article does, even more so in the eyes of the disbelievers, and in the eyes of all American people who value this country, and it’s freedoms, so that they may be wakened. Faith is dead without works…let’s work together..Amen
Thank you for those powerful words and prayer! People of America have to awaken to the facts and recognize truth. Yearning for The Living God by F Enzio Bushe is a book which verifies the truth of all you are saying about how Hitler seized power in Germany.
Our country may be under judgement (Killing babies, pedophilia, LGBT infiltrating all levels of our children’s world, godlessness in our universities) and that people who stand for Jesus may actually have to suffer or give their lives. Prayer can put off those days of testing but the ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT will eventually happen as the Bible says! Are we prepared for to stand in that day? Are our children? Until then, this day we fight. “FATHER, we stand with you against all evil, present or future. Keep us strong for You whatever the cost. We repent of the terrible sin of wickedness in our land, and pray for mercy.
THERE ARE EVIL FORCES THAT WANT TO DESTROY THE USA SO CHRISTIANS NEED TO STAND UP IN INTERCESSION STAND FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND TRUTH . ALSO VOTE FOR TRUMP AND OTHER REPUBLICANS BE CAUSE ALL THE DEMONCATS STAND FOR EVIL AGENDAS .
Fits the pattern. Simple, yet too complicated for the average Democrat to discern. Hope God’s people have been informed and are ready to meet the challenge come November!
Thank you so much for posting this. I am going to tell everyone I know to come here and read this for themselves and to pray your prayer for our nation. God bless and protect you and yours always.
The lockdown measures, media hype and fear mongering are also part of the attempted takeover. The mask is a symbol of compliance preparing Americans for the vaccine which could contain pig urine, abortion extract, aluminum, mercury and a nanochip. We have to pray imprecatory prayers against the planners and players of America’s fall and their covert manueverings. To name a few, they are: dr. Fauci, George Soros and Bill Gates. Dr. Shiva, a human immune system specialist, said that covid19 will go down in history as the biggest fraud to ruin economies, suppress dissent, and mandate medicine(forced vaccinations). Covid hysteria is part of the coup attempt to remove president Trump.
It is now the time to get serious about fasting like never before.
GET YOUR HOUSES IN ORDER
Man has seen what man could do.
Now, the world needs to see a more different view:
G-D’s people returning to their place in Him,
Divorcing themselves from worldliness and sin.
With prayer, G-D’s power, and proclamation,
Let the Church arise in renewed dedication.
As G-D’s children of Light: His holy seed,
Let us take up our crosses and follow His lead.
It’s time to rally around the Cross,
Remembering Christ died to save the lost.
Away with pride and men’s applause!
Let’s return unto G-D and to His holy laws.
When man’s wicked laws rule o’er the land,
We have nothing “solid” upon which to stand.
There’s a Judge over judges we live for today,
Who alone, is the Truth, the Life, and the Way.
Let’s hold up G-D’s standards, His laws and His commands;
We’ve a choice to please G-D or to please man.
Let the “true and living” Church arise now and shine
Obeying G-D’s voice, supreme and divine!
It’s time to move forward in G-D’s purpose and plan,
For we’ve been brought forth in this hour to stand.
What’s written in G-D’s Holy Word is ever so true:
“Draw near unto G-D and He’ll draw near unto you”.
Gross darkness is coming and will soon cover the world.
G-D’s judgments are set and will fully be unfurled.
The death angel o’er Egypt will await His command.
“Get your houses in order!” says the Great I AM.
Another factor in the collapse of a nation: citizens look for what “THEY” will do to protect the citizens. While part of the solution, the center of gravity of a fight is “what will I do?” Thumb sucking whining from a fetal position in a dark corner away from frightening issues delivers dreaded outcomes, not attainment of noble ends. Too many of us see a tough fight for someone else to win on our behalf. Gutless politicians can see a future form themselves in service to those who bought them, not those who elected them. Do elected members of the GOP (Groveling Old Patsies) really want term limits and investigations into their finances? A start to win the fight: read the oath that the Swamp slime take, then take it yourself while encouraging others to do the same. Do it now and make it viral on the internet. Multiple millions standing in the face of the tens of thousands on TV and in the media will make an impact. We are isolated, BUT NOT ALONE in this nation of 320 million being pushed around by a minority of radicals! FIGHT with your key strokes to bring our forces out of isolation and into a powerful unity. Though many in the US have forgotten God, he has not forgotten us.
I am a grandmother and as I have observed, Christian parents are equally responsible for what we are now witnessing. We gave our children over to a secular government school system that has been indoctrinating our children for decades. What did we expect? That should be at the top of the list for things to repent for.
Christians are called to be wise, not gullible. It is shameful that so many Christians are fool by conspiracy theories and bear false witness by sharing them with others.
I do not agree with Ed Stetzer. I have followed some of his stuff before. He is a part of the problem of disinformation and misinformation. We are not gullible. We are awake, but apparently Ed is not. He wants you to think he is. “professing themselves to be wise, they became as fools.” Romans 1
Christians are called to be wise, not gullible. It is shameful that so many Christians are fool by conspiracy theories and bear false witness by sharing them with others.
We need to continually pray, “Lord, forgive them, for they know not what they do. Pour out your awesome amazing love, love so powerful that it melts the hate that is blinding them”. In Jesus name and for the glory of Jesus, I pray.
Did you ever think you would see the day
when to know the truth of what people say
would require discernment to see beyond the play
of the often-well-rehearsed words drawing us into the fray
with a spirit of fear announcing there is just one way
to believe their narrative denying your freedom to say nay.
When given a choice of what to believe
I chose the side that embraces the liberty to disagree.
When presented with opinions, theories, and beliefs reprobate
In a dogmatic fashion and in absence of debate
I am doubtful when a notion lacks the merit of fact-based evidence
Supported on the legs of a credible defense.
Perhaps you say this is the day people might be led astray
Paralyzed with fear and fear of thinking the “wrong way.”
I have confidence wise people will recognize what is true
And will see through sound bite mantras, doublespeak through and through
Truth never changes with the times or emotional appeal
It can stand the test of time “tried and true” its approval seal.
When emotional barrage replaces rational discussion,
When the diatribe of commentators is repetitious percussion,
When the threat of being bullied, silenced, censored, and ignored,
Keeps you from speaking out and speaking often-fearing calamitous discord,
When a Coup D’état, wages a war dispirit,
When you fight for the right to speak so everyone can hear it,
Take courage, be brave, like a lion roar
Humble yourself, fast and pray for this battle is the Lord’s.
For we fight not against flesh and blood
But against principalities and powers who come in like a flood.
So, on our knees, before our Father who has promised to hear,
Who has given us boldness and not a spirit of fear,
Before the Righteous Judge, we present our case,
Within the ears of our Advocate, before the Throne of Grace.
In His wisdom, He will render a verdict Righteously
Before the Host of Heaven who will execute His decree.
So, rest assured His Truth is Marching on
He will not be silenced; He is relentless as the dawn.
Despite wicked lies from the Enemy,
His Light outshines the darkness, for all the world to see.
In the beginning, was the WORD; He was, He is and Ever Shall be.
He is the Alpha and Omega, He will have the Last Word, You will See!
Thank you for these encouraging words presented with great poetry. It was a joy to read.
Eye opening article but sad too say only GOD can open the hearts and minds of fools
Thank you for truth!
EVERY WORD OF THIS COMMENT IS TRUE AND PERTINENT TO OUR DAILY LIvES. – TODAY!!
The History of our country and world have been removed slowly from our education systems and produced this void and removed passion from our children. They hunger for passion and purpose only see it in these radicals, along with Hollywood and their false narratives. We need to go out on the streets peacefully but with passion and authority and stand for our values. I also believe the African Americans need THEIR CONSERVATIVE VOICES HEARD also. I think it’s their time also to stand against and call out those who are using the black communities to push the radical , anarchy agenda through. I pray God you open their eyes to see your love for them and this country and for all of us to heal. Where are the BRAVE and the FREE? We are!
I know IFA is for intercession first , I have been involved since the 1970’s, but let’s pray and walk!
A reminder that Hitler had his Mueller whom he made head of his secret police. It resulted in Gestapo style raids on innocent people to instill fear in citizens to get them to betray each other.
Our merciful heavenly Father, in the precious name of Jesus Your Son and our Lord, we ask that You would pray for us with Holy Spirit words we do not know in English for our great and beloved country. Protection and safety for President Trump, his family, his cabinet, and all of our government officials who want what is best for our country, our constitution, and our Bill of Rights. Dear Father, we ask that the right to assemble and worship You would be protected. Nothing is impossible with You Lord. Help our prayer warriors to remain strong and diligent through this battle with satan’s warriors for this is a spiritual battle we know. Amen
Oh, how blind and apathetic ordinary Americans have become. They have become drunk with the messages of the MSM and Hollywood. We must pray for our LORD to shake and awaken people to the Truth by sending HIS angelic forces to drive open hearts and minds of the catastrophe coming upon America if they do nothing. PLEASE, LORD, help us defeat the evil, demonic entities driving the destruction of our nation. Protect our President Trump and assure his VICTORY again on November 3, 2020, and give him to us as President for another 4 years. Please arrange the defeat of those in Congress who stand in his way. Encourage YOUR PEOPLE TO PRAY! Thank you, LORD, for hearing our prayers. AMEN.
No I don’t think America will learn. I think it’s too late. I think Jesus is coming back any minute.
That’s what they want to convince us of- it’s too late.
It’s never too late for God. Since Jesus can return any minute we are to stand faithful, trust and pray no matter what we see.
Believing God will show himself in a mighty way in response to our prayers.
I know it’s never to late for God and I will never stop praying for America. I’m 78 and I really believe we will see God’s return in my lifetime. I do pray daily for God to turn all of his turmoil around and for people to turn back to Him in a mighty way.
Hosea 6:2. According to this prophecy, he’s coming back after two days(2,000 years). It’s now time to occupy until he returns.
Historically, people do not learn from their past, as an individual and as a nation. That is why it is said, “History repeats itself.” Unless we see God send an awakening, we will do the same. We must pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 through each of the steps listed in order for the promise of “I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land,” to be fulfilled. (NLT)
Amen. We as the body of Christ must pray so we won’t repeat History..
But the Lord, is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.
They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.
Oh Lord Almighty, you who examine the righteous and probe the heart and mind, let me see your vengeance upon them,
for to you I have committed my cause.
Sing to the Lord! Give praise to the Lord! He rescues the life of the needy from the hands of the wicked.
I’m praying in accord with IFA. “Wherever two or more . . .” Amen!
Bravo, Karen! You’ve done it again.
Father, God, I humbly come before You, to seek You and Your mercy for America. You are a covenant God, and You watch over Your word to perform it. I pray for the ancient covenants you made with our forefathers will be upheld and brought to fruition now. Confound the wicked, let their plots and plans come to nothing in Jesus name. Let every evil tongue uttering curses and other evil pronouncements against President Trump, our government and nation be completely silenced. Your word says in Ps 37:13-15 “but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming. The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright.
But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.” Your divine justice and Your righteousness must be done right now in our nation and satan’s kingdom come to an end. Lord, arise in Your glory over America, and Your enemies be scattered.
Mal 4:1-3 The LORD of Heaven’s Armies says, “The day of judgment is coming, burning like a furnace. On that day the arrogant and the wicked will be burned up like straw. They will be consumed—roots, branches, and all. “But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. On the day when I act, you will tread upon the wicked as if they were dust under your feet,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.
Father,I decree WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD AND WE WILL REMAIN ONE NATION UNDER GOD, in Jesus mighty name!
Nope, have said it and will say it again, snopes is a leftist tiny outfit sitting in their living room when started and people thought it was great. It was when they reported falsely on a situation I was privy to told me they didn’t research, nor have staff to research yet somehow the public gave them importance not deserved.
Thank you for that personal experience.
Everything they don’t agree with gets a stamp of false information. Your experience confirms what I’ve felt in my spirit since the first time hearing about snopes.
Thank you for more understanding of what is trying to take place. I will continue to pray from Isaiah 11 that we not decide just by the hearing of our ears nor even the seeing of our eyes, but the Holy Spirit will enlighten us…And that we not be jealous nor harass each other but that we will fly down together against the evil that is coming against us from all sides.
Lord we humble our selves before your Holy Presence.
We ask you to step in and fight this battle for us.
We need your help, we need you to step in and defeat the strong and sneaky tactics of our enemy.
We ask you to forgive our sins against you. Sins of complacency and self interest only, while the country is falling into the enemies hands. We bow before you with contrite hearts and downtrodden spirits. We ask believing that you are MERCIFUL and GRACIOUS to all who repent and seek Your face.
In the only Name given among men where by you can be saved from wrath… JESUS LORD of LORDS.
75 years ago today (July 30, 1945) my uncle’s ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. The USS Indianapolis (CA-35) was on its way to the Philippines after delivering the atomic bomb (Hiroshima) to the island of Tinian. My father, a naval photographer (ironically, he developed the picture of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki), was stationed in the Philippines. He knew his brother’s ship was due in port and was anxious to see him. He would never see him again. Two weeks later, on the day the war ended, while Americans were celebrating, my grandmother and grandfather were told that their son and 860+ other sailors were missing in action… I cannot speak to what other “Americans” have “learned”. I will only say that this American will never, ever dishonor the sacrifice of so many who died in opposition to god-less tyranny. I will never surrender my rights, or the rights of my children and grandchildren.. ever…
This greaves my heart and spirit. I love America. It is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Oh how beautiful our home is.
Lord I come before you humbly asking for forgiveness for all that we have done to deface and darken our country. Please Lord forgive us. I pray that all will bow before you and take you as Lord and Savior. I pray for truth to come forth and the Army of God comes and stands up for all that is truthful and the Word of the Lord. I rebuke you devil for all of your efforts. However your future is dim and the Lord has defeated you. We have the victory and I plan to walk in it. The words of my mouth will not speak defeat, they are of victory that the Lord has given unto us. Bind my tongue from evil or wrong words Lord. Speak to me of truth and grace and love. WE WILL STAND FOR THE TRUTH AND THE GOODNESS OF GOD AND ALL THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US. WE WILL BE THE ARMY GOING FORTH.
Dear Jesus, in scripture you give us an idea of how things will be before Your return to establish a New Heaven and Earth. I recall the Word saying, “As it was in the days of Noah, it will be before I return”. (Not exact words.) Anyway, Jesus, I do not believe I am to give up on America, or the world because I conclude nothing can be done to “turn things around” because “it is what it is”. Abraham kept going back to the Triune God over and over to ask for Your mercy to fall on Sodom and Gommorah. I am using Abraham’s example to determine my steps as Your servant.
Lord, “you would have all to be saved”, and I pray Your return is delayed for the sake of Your heart’s desire.
any are not saved. Until you come I pray you will strengthen me to continue in prayer for healing for the nations, and for all to turn to You in submission and obedience as You are the Creator and Sovereign. Quiet the voices and intents of evil in our world. Let all have eyes to see and ears to hear You. Amen.
Heavenly Father, in Jesus Name, I say “Amen” to the prayer at the end of this very sobering article.
At the grass roots level, I’m hearing story after story of people who are waking up and returning to God. This is hard to quantify because there is no media coverage but we can hear it if we listen to the Spirit. I believe there is a massive underground force that is largely unseen and unheard who will rise up in November and defy the polls. There is an estimated 100 million serious believers in this country. We need to pray for their numbers to astronomically increase. This last debacle with the frontline doctors is even shaking many who have bought the PC lies up to now, and they are beginning to question. We’re hearing about it on the ground. “Lord, how are they increased that trouble me, many are they that rise up against me. Many are they which say of my soul ‘there is no help for him in God.’ But THOU oh, Lord, are a shield form me, my glory and the lifter of my head!” I have to remind myself that only that which God allows can happen to us, and right now, the ball is in our court (the Church.) Rise up, Remnant!
Father God I come against all those who would try to pervert the truth and cause us as citizens of America to be blindsided and not see what going on Father God in the Name Of Your Son Jesus open the eyes of Your people to bomb bard Heaven as pray warriors and plead with God to have mercy on us
We must repent and return to God as a Nation, so we can reclaim his protection. As a nation we have turned against God and can not ask for his protection unless we repent. Maybe Covid is a reminder to repent and pray.
America will survive since more and more people are getting hungry (literally) and when your belly starts to complain it has the effect of opening your eyes and getting you off your backside to do something different. AMEN. ( we Christians know fasting is very effective. So for those who deliberately eat less and those for whom its a new experience….expect change.)
Amen and amen. The Lord is good and He alone is sovereign.
where can I get real facts? this is really a very good article. thank you so much for sharing this
There are hyperlinks in the article. You can click on them for additional information and facts.
I have been watching the signs of these times and agree with what’s been said in this article. America, the church, religious freedom, the constitution, are all under attack. Covid-19 did not come by chance, mistake or random error in genetic manipulation. It is being used to make the American People believe they need governmental interaction in their every day life to protect them. We started with a disease that, while serious, was manipulated in the news and with physicians, falsely reporting exaggerated tally’s of death and infection rates to create a panic among the general population. If the disease is as bad as they say, why are protesters not required to social distance and wear masks? Why does no one report on this? Are they dispensable, or are the “facts” they use to control us and shut down the churches simply false and created to create panic? I question the whole reasoning behind liberals who are using this covid excuse. Blue States have a higher death than red states. The more intervention in the state, the more cases there are. As the covid issue continues, the more resistance to the President. Random chance this is happening? I don’t think so. Welcome to the new normal? More like welcome to a restructured America.
Lord, Karin Hardin’s article could not be more perfect at this time. The take down of our President is called Operation Hurricane and has been going on before he was elected. I pray for George Webb, a citizen journalist, who has documented the events for over four years. He had 4000 videos that youtube took down in a day. Lord, you provided the new free speech Parler.com so he put everything there but it was taken down within a week. So he wrote a book “Awan Minutes to Midnight” and amazon took it down so he wrote “Blackberries Matter” because he wants to inform people about the coup against the president. I thank you, Lord, for John O’Laughlin whose father worked for JFK and tried to smash the CIA and he was murdered. I thank you for Harry the Greek, BrassBalls.blog, who informed us about H.B. 7120 the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020 which will defund our police department to be replaced with UN Peacekeepers.It has already passed the House and been read twice in the Senate. Not on my watch, Lord. I pray that AG Barr remains loyal to our president. He is/was CIA and he’s been in DC a long time so I pray against any corruption and that he is honest, trustworthy and loyal to our president and our Constitution. I thank you, Lord, for all the citizen journalists, Corey Digs, Mark Kulacz and others who give freely of their time to save our country. I praise you, Lord, that you are not finished with America yet.
Thank you so much for this article. I appreciate IFA for their articles of information that give us the truth with the knowledge and references to back them up. Also for the ability to share, print or forward to other intercessors.
God please save America the last beacon of hope to the world – Lord you are the One we turn to no one else – Please have mercy on us and don’t give us what we deserve but please give mercy and grace
Lord we thank you that you know the end from the beginning. We thank you that is day is no surprise to you.
May we respond in love to overcome evil with good according to your Word and Spirit. A Psalms 2 crisis requires a Joel 2 response and may we cry out for an Acts 2 Outpouring of your Spirit. May we respond in love to 2 Chron. 7-14 and seek your Face and turn from our wicked ways that you may hear from Heaven and Heal our
Land. Father we pray that you will hear our humble cries for our families, friends and our enemies and truly
Make us that Nation that was in your Heart when you birthed us into the family of nations. May America Bless
God and we would be United as One Nation Under God with Liberty and Justice for All. For your Glory and our
Lord I thank you for this forum that allows us to more clearly see what is happening around us but also provides a way to link arms via the internet which the enemy is surveilling at all times. May your people, called by your name, hear your voice of conscience and see your presence in the land today so that they may be compelled to give up their idols of rebellion and false worship over things that are created rather than worshipping the Creator.
Remove the sleep from their eyes and give their assignment to them that they may take up their positions around the walls of the church and the nation once again that the agents of darkness may be defeated in the name of Jesus, amen.
I used to be a liberal, but God has shown me the truth over the years and changed my heart. I sometimes can’t believe who I am these days. Praise God for that!
That being said, besides my Christian family I still have friends sharing my old views and most of my family is very liberal.
I speak up when they let me. Most of the time I’m left feeling angry at what they cannot see or do not want to see.
It’s easy to believe God will move on our behalf when you are with God-revering, God-loving, faithful servants. But I confess being equally submerged with unbelievers make me—not hopeless but instead preparing my spiritual life for that of the upcoming and happening now, persecution. Not wanting to be blindsided as our mighty Father will not leave us or forsake us, but also not unaware that life as we know it may never be the same.
Father, prepare us individually and collectively so that we may be found faithful with our hearts fixed solely on You in whatever lies ahead.
As for those who are going their own way, I ask that You interrupt their paths with Your powerful truth as the dark becomes exposed.
In Jesus name. Amen
“life as we know it may never be the same.” And it shouldn’t! #1 Life by it’s very definition is dynamic – growing and developing. #2 If life returns to “normal”, we’ve wasted 4.5 years!
#3 We don’t want “normal” complacency, distraction, self-absorption! #4 God didn’t bring us this far, to leave us!
O Lord Almighty, Faithful and True, I exalt You. I marvel at Your wonders. Blessed be Your Holy Name. I thank You for Your peace, Your protection, and Your provision. Thank You for hearing our cry for a strong leader to take on the Deep State and providing us with Your man, President Trump. Thank You for the honor of calling us to pray for him. I praise You for the changes we’ve seen in the battle for our country and praise You for exposing the rot, corruption, and evil in our government.
Father, I ask that ears, eyes, hearts and minds be opened to Your truth, and that Your Name be glorified as Your mighty works are performed! Hallelujah! In Jesus’ redeeming name, I pray. Amen.
Elaine, I appreciate your enthusiasm!
I’m thinking maybe you didn’t read my first sentence 😉
Isn’t it lovely that He created us so uniquely different to serve the same purpose.
This article is speaking of things, I personally have never encountered but have read much about in other countries. It’s happening today, I just read about Christians being beheaded in Mozambique.
I never want to get complacent in thinking these atrocities are not possible to some degree in the US. Christians all over the world are holding fast to their faith even at the risk of death. May I be found faithful when my Christian comforts here in America have never really been shaken.
God bless sister.
As a matter of fact, pulling that one sentence from my reply is a bit like using a bible verse out of context.
But hey! We’ve all done it at some point or another!
You are the 1st to recognize that our country may be under judgement (Killing babies, pedophilia, LGBT infiltrating all levels of our children’s world, godlessness in our universities) and that people who stand for Jesus may actually have to suffer or give their lives. Prayer can put off those days of testing but the ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT will eventually happen as the Bible says! Are we prepared for that? Until then, this day we fight.
Sometimes I am curious to the many cliches in the christian community.
For example, “wake up church, or wake up America”, what exactly are we waking up to? I don’t mean to sound condescending but, the things you stated are all over the news. PLEASE HEAR, they gut punch my spirit as much as yours and everyone else’s!
Today, many claim to be one of God’s warriors. From what I’ve read in the Bible, God typically goes with an army on the smaller side! Is that only to show His great and mighty power?? Or could it be, more people than not are not prepared to be one of God’s chosen warriors. Could that be because they will do more harm than good(we are not right before God)? I do not claim to have all the answers, trust me I am constantly asking God all of the above!
I can say personally that I know it to be truth that His kindness and patience do bring us to repentance. But– when I thought I was ready for the battle, ‘yes God use me!'(another cliche), I experienced my own whip of cord and an overturned table. I wouldn’t change a thing over the last 7 years since Jesus bombarded me. My prayers went and some still are unanswered. Of course God heard me, yet my friends and family are still unsaved, despite 18 years of praying. However the extraordinary news is I have become rooted and grounded in Him in ways I could never have known about! I still believe God. But He said ‘wait, this first daughter.’ For this one thing I have against you… Revelation 2:4-6, Rev 2:20
Proverbs 19:2(ESV). Desire without knowledge is not good and whoever makes haste with His feet misses the way.
So, to conclude its not just the unsaved or liberals I am concerned with, but us– the body of Christ.
Thank You for the peace that calms my heart when –its not my will, but Yours be done.
John 2:13-17 (ESV)
Jesus Cleanses the Temple
The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple He found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money changers sitting there.
And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. And He told those who sold the pigeons,
“Take these things away; do not make My Father’s house a house of trade.” His disciples remembered that it was written,
“Zeal for Your house will consume Me.”
Romans 2:1-11 (ESV)
God’s Righteous Judgment
2 Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. 2 We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. 3 Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? 5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.
6 He will render to each one according to his works: 7 to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8 but for those who are self-seeking[a] and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. 9 There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, 10 but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. 11 For God shows no partiality.
Pamela, I am glad you did see part of my heart cry. Most of the people who are on the other side, they are desperate for love and acceptance. God used a christian\new ager\lesbian to be the one who brought me to Christ! Go figure.
This is another one of my favorite exhortations Jude 21-24
*keep yourselves in the love of God
*wait for the mercy of Jesus that leads to eternal life
*have mercy on those who doubt
*save others by snatching them out of the fire
*to others show mercy with fear
*to others hating even the garment stained by the flesh
Now to Him who is able to keep your from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy!
We aren’t called to lump everyone in a particular category.
Bless you sister!
I don’t think this pertains to the original blog anymore!

Hi Pamela Brunson, Whitney Bell has replied to your comment on FOUR STEPS OF A COUP D’ETAT: WILL AMERICA LEARN FROM HISTORY? Pamela, Hi! Sometimes I am curious
Aug 3, 2020, 2:16 PM (2 days ago)
Dear precious Whitney, (Precious to God and to me),
It has taken some time to pray over your email. It has several threads, and I will try to address each one.
First, what are we to ‘wake up to’? There is a great deal of lawlessness in our country today, those who would renounce God, turn us into a Marxist government, riot, burn, loot, kill, burn Bibles and our flag. Many Christians prefer not to recognize or keep informed. We need to fight for the principles on which our country was formed by praying, keeping informed, and voting our values (not for a person but a platform). This requires looking into each candidate’s values. We may yet have some time to live free.
You seem well acquainted with the Bible. You will know then, from Revelation, that there will be globalism: One world government. When I was young, none of these things were remotely possible. Now they are in view: microchipping those who will renounce Jesus in order to buy or sell. It will happen as God has said. We need to be prepared to follow Him, even to death, knowing our eternal reward and happiness is secure. For this kind of faith, we need eternal eyes as those in Hebrews 11 had. Ask for them! Ask that your love for Jesus will be so strong, that NO COST will be too high to pay for Him. I suggest you read “Imagine Heaven” by John Burke. It will take away all fear!
Concerning LOVE (for everyone, including LGBTQ, every race and color, every religion, even our enemies), we are commanded to bless them and seek their good. Let God be the judge. This does not mean we are to move away from revealed Biblical values, as many churches have done. You’re right that many in church are mean and judgemental, while others are apostate, conforming to our culture. Real love is caring enough to share truth in a caring way. For your friend, i would recommend reading “Gay Girl, Good God.’ by Jackie Hill Perry. When we turn our heart and will over to Christ, the Holy Spirit gives us the power to be transformed. We don’t conform Him to our own will, ideas, or practices, we turn from our own way to HIS revealed will. That can be a Romans 7 battle, but even if we fail at times, we keep moving forward to ask forgiveness and turn back to His way. He welcomes us with open arms as we do our own children. “Therefore there is NO CONDEMNATION to them that are in Christ Jesus” We all fail in many ways but His love remains. Dear Whitney, you are secure as His beloved daughter, forever. Satan is the accuser and will throw your past in your face. Resist him. I’m asking God today to give you peace and rest.
Finally, there is unanswered prayer. Keep praying and letting your love-light shine. I’m praying daily for my unsaved family members, too. The story isn’t ended yet.Let God be God. If you will send me your email address, I will write again. Love, your sister Pamela
What we have been praying for intervention of GOD.
All Mighty Father,
You alone are God and on the Throne. Please awaken Your people to uphold our president, our nation, our police, our families in prayer. Expose the lies that are put forth as truth. Unite us under Your banner, Lord, protect us from the evil one who seeks to kill and destroy. Awaken your church. Give us boldness to expose the lies designed to keep us in bondage and to declare Jesus is Lord and put Him first in all things. Forgive us for abandoning You and your ways as the Isrealites did in times of old. Yet, You restored them when they returned to You in repentance. We need You Lord. We cry out to You for help. We thank You that You already won the war and keeping Your hand upon us. Protect us from evil and keep us ready for Your return. Glory to Your Holy Name. Amen
We decree You will remove completely the blinders from people who are still not seeing this truth!!
Your Hand is still at work in this country that you created!!
I pray in agreement with the prayers here for God to intervene, for America’s citizens who are currently blinded their eyes be opened, that truth will prevail, We the people will take a stand for the right and our rights through our Constitution be restored
God Bless you Karen Hardin and ifa for this extremely importantly article of truth!
Lord God hear our cries for your divine intervention!
You are our Divine Leader and Master and You alone are our Salvation!
We will storm the gates of heaven from whence comes our help!
Send your Warring Angels and your Heavenly Hosts to completely dismantle every one of the enemy’s plans until his agenda is completely taken down once and for all! As he tries to take down our history let his strategy be exposed and his agenda be taken down!
Let us not be weary in well doing and never give up or give in and watch with complete Trust in You as watchmen for your divine intervention!
In Jesus’ name, we agree. Amen!!!
Thank you Karen. That was brilliantly explained.
I can’t get share button to advance to facebook.
Neither can I. It simply never shows up on my FB page
I have had the same problem many times. I copy the URL and go directly to Facebook and post the URL for the IFA article there. It works.
Yes! We are being systematically taken down! Have been for awhile! This is just the end of the beginning! May God be here for all who are good and protect and shelter us from this evil!!!
