THE FORCES AT WORK IN WASHINGTON, D.C.—AN EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT
Continue to pray that the forces of darkness will continue to flee at the presence of the Lord in Washington, DC. What is God showing you as you intercede right now for the nation? Leave a comment below to share.
For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. (2 Cor 2:15)
David Kubal, president of Intercessors for America, one of the largest and oldest prayer networks in the country, was in Washington D.C. September 27, 2018, the day of the now infamous Senate Judiciary committee hearing into the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
On that day, Mr. Kubal had entered the Dirksen Senate Office Building, where the hearing was taking place. As he ascended a steep stair well, lined on both sides with protesters who were there to support the idea that Judge Kavanaugh was a sexual predator. As he walked up, he sensed a strong demonic presence and wondered what it meant. While he was not confronted by the group, he noticed that they literally lined both sides of the entire staircase. When he got near the top, he looked down to see a woman leader take a call from someone, after which she signaled to the group and they left immediately. Very shortly thereafter, a remarkable event occurred.
About two minutes later, alone near the top of the staircase, with police guards at the bottom, a vile stench arose from the bottom of the stair well. It was putrid and terrible – the worst odor he had ever smelled in his life, so disgusting that it shocked him, so awful that he texted his wife Kris to ask who was speaking in the hearing room. When he learned the name of the speaker, he prayed that the spirits responsible for the odor would leave, whereupon the stench died away.
(He learned later from a prayer leader who was in Senator Chuck Grassley’s office in the very same building at the very same time that she smelled the very same kind of odor.)
About 15 minutes later he exited the building and got into a taxi with the windows open. A few minutes into the ride the normal air of a large city was replaced in the cab by the same putrid odor. This lasted about 15 seconds, only to be itself replaced by the aroma of freshly cut grass, a pure clean scent. This was puzzling because there was no grass in the city for many blocks that could have produced the effect.
Then the Word came to him that God’s presence would replace the demonic manifestation and that His Spirit would bring a cleansing of the nation. He then discerned the “spirit of victimization” in which the enemy uses the legitimate pain of those who have been truly victimized as a weapon for political gain. He discerned that this is the demonic spirit that the presence of God would cleanse and remove.
Later, on October 5th, the Senate confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Shortly before the vote, Mr. Kubal was in a small meeting of intercessors where Senator Chuck Grassley testified of his belief in the power of prayer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he was thankful for all the prayers directed to the confirmation effort.
These are the spiritual forces at work in our capital city and in our nation. (By Jim Kohlmann)
