I Prayed have prayed
Lord Jesus, we fix our eyes on You. We put our trust in You.
Reading Time: 4 minutes

Turmoil still abounds in our nation. I am hearing so many perspectives, condemnations, and prophetic words my head is almost spinning. So, I thought I would take a few moments to address our intercessors to encourage you and give you some perspective.

The “events” the Capitol were “intolerable”? I was in D.C. on Wednesday on the lawn of the Capitol for seven hours – only taking a break to go to the rally on the Ellipse. What happened on this day was a peaceful demonstration by hundreds of thousands of people who care about our nation and want free elections. They heard speakers, bought t-shirts, ate big pretzels, and went home.

This fact cannot be missed: The vast majority of the many people were peaceful protestors. I have never seen so many people in my life. If I were told there were 1 million people, there I would believe it.

A small portion of the immense crowd actually made it to the Capitol.

The crowd at the Capitol was still thousands of people—for a miraculous story in the midst of protest at the Capitol please watch this. I walked through the crowd all day long. Most were patriots asking for fair elections.

The Gospel was being preached on loudspeakers and people were blaring praise music.

But there were a small number of people who came to stir things up. I saw them yelling into the crowd around them. A small number of them were wearing helmets, vests, and knee pads as if they were readied for violence.

It was clear that some were there to create or participate in violence. Active “members” of antifa—the far-left group—were later identified by facial recognition. “Members” of the Proud Boys—a far-right group—were easy to spot because of what they wore.

The violence I witnessed personally involved 10 men wearing regular clothes (no Trump paraphernalia) who challenged the vastly outnumbered Capitol police and were eventually let through the temporary fence set up. That is when thousands stormed up the Capitol steps and  when they got to the top they simply cheered!

Of the thousands on the Capitol, I would estimate I saw about 10 men who were engaged in violence, some who used self-defense batons to break the windows.

The violence of this incredibly small group, of course, should be condemned. And I do condemn it. But the question must be asked, why did the authorities just allow these bad actors – whose motives are unknown – to walk past them at the time the electoral college certification was being debated?

The Capitol Chief of Police—who reports to Congress—not the Mayor of DC, nor the Trump Administration – has resigned, and should have.

Here are my main points:

This situation should have been avoided.

Those who committed violence were not only on the right side of the political spectrum.

The violence was instigated by a tiny fraction of the people there that day.

In the back drop of our nation dealing with our Capitol being sieged, our Congress chose not to investigate the potential of voter fraud and they accepted the electoral college in the middle of the night.

For those who have prayed earnestly for the Trump administration, how are we to react? Where is God in all of this?

I am hearing people express their disappointment, describing a state of mourning. Wonderful men and women who have mustered faith and hope for months now see a distressful outcome.

Where is God in all of this? What is He up to?

Let me tell you the various things I am hearing from others:

  1. America is under judgment. Our lawmakers have legalized abortion on demand resulting in 60 million babies aborted. God has been merciful in past years, but now has allowed us to be led by governmental leaders who fully embrace abortion on demand, not to mention the destruction of the biblical form of marriage, scriptural sexual identity, religious freedoms, etc. The Church receives the government we deserve.
  2. God’s sovereign plan was for this to happen. God’s plan for this nation is sometimes influenced by people’s actions, sometimes by intercession, but we find ourselves in a situation where we are experiencing the sovereign will of God. This was His plan and destiny all along.
  3. Evil has won the day and, despite prayer and intercession for our leaders, the resolve to investigate potential voter fraud was not there.
  4. If you have a lack of faith, God will not do what He (or is it we?) want. We must have faith in order to see God’s mercy for our nation to come to pass; without our faith He will not act.
  5. God is still the God of turnaround, so hang on. President Trump will still be elected.

Here is what I think: God is still on the throne. Regardless of circumstances I will put my trust in Him and not earthly leaders. The short term outcome looks bleak, but the coming months will require believers to be MORE engaged in prayer and action. Church leaders will be forced to speak out against ungodly government because we are moving past disagreement on issues to potentially government-sponsored persecution. The remnant is there, and we intercessors have yet had our day. The power of intercession is yet to be realized.

Those of us who consider ourselves intercessors for America must band together, intercede with unity, commit to community, and resolve to continue to battle on our knees. Many would have preferred a different outcome, one resulting in our nation’s top leaders supporting biblical values, but we will continue to pray for godly leaders, we will intercede and strive for biblical values in our culture, and we will continue to fight the spiritual battle on our knees.

We may mourn for a brief moment, losing a hard fought battle, but we will continue in the fight until the war is won.

I know these points will stir much emotion, but I am really interested in your point of view. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you are thinking.

His timing, not ours!
Repent and wait on the Lord!
How dare we dictate time lines!
Daniel 2:44

OK so here goes,
I have zoned in on the prospect that Trump would win again, and heard the prophecies of him winning a second term, every time I saw the verse If my people who are called by My name humble themselves and call out to me I will heal their land. Every time I saw that verse I would scream what do you think we are doing?? People all over the world were supposedly seen out in droves on their knees in the streets praying for America. You had groups all over in constant prayer rallies, and “worship protests” and what was supposed to unite us as Christians have furthered divided us. Yes, God is upset about the gazillion babies aborted, and horrible things happening with gender identity, and the reframing of marriage act… etc… But, that stuff has been happening for decades, and what if that’s not it! What if… Trump not winning is God’s way of saving America from being a lukewarm and complacent church, and maybe the only way Revival can take place is by Trump losing. We all prayed for Revival. We all prayed for God’s will. Maybe he is answering that prayer. Where in the bible does it say America is the hub for the gospel? Yes, we have bibles in every translation, and sermons across every podcast and some are answering the call to distribute that truth here in America, but most are not. They are more willing to go to Africa, or a third world country, then talk to their neighbor, I’m included. Maybe the judgment is from not spreading the gospel, not disciplining THIS nation. I see more people in my life standing up for their faith, and willing to be arrested then anytime under Trump, or even Reagan. When Obama was in office we all stood with our mouths open when the Supreme Court authorized same-sex marriages and was mortified when the rainbow gleamed across the white house. We did nothing. We were upset when football players were kneeling to the flag thinking we were witnessing traitors to our country, God didn’t care about that, what He witnessed, was a country that cares more about patriotism, wrapped in executive orders, and religious piety. Jesus didn’t come to save America, He came to save souls. More souls have been won in the last year than probably 10 years combined. Jesus isn’t a Trump supporter, He is not a patriot, He is not ” A defender of our religious liberties! In fact, He said if they called Me a demon they will call you one too! But we act so shocked when it happens! I don’t believe God is judging us, but preparing us to receive us to Himself. So many are not ready… Doesn’t the bible say there will be a one-world order? Then why are we so surprised when they talk about global anything? Why would He judge us when that’s what Judgement Day is for? Maybe I’m confused. But, everything I have been reading up until now does not define judgment while we are still here. Why would God tell us to humble ourselves and pray and He would heal our land and then when we obey, He sends judgment? That doesn’t make any sense to me. What does make sense is God allowing things to go forward, so that prophecy can continue. President Trump was used to align Isreal to receive the Anti-Christ. PERIOD. Did he accomplish that? Yes. Are things going to get worse? Of course, it is, because whether we like it or not the whole earth is going to fuse into one global unit. Nevertheless, Jesus says He is coming at a time when no one is expecting it, a time of peace. So, if we want to usher in peace, we better make darn sure we are ready.

    After reading your post & reflecting for a Moment Your view is Sobering & draws the reader ( Believer )
    to look at this From ” His point of View ” ….. Many people truly Love America and are horrified with what
    we’ve Whitnessed over the last few years / It grieves me to see what is happening and how people go along with what is considered EVIL …………. Thanks for Your prospective

I believe God is purifying His church. Yes the nation is under judgement, but remember judgement always begins with the house of God. Israel was captive in Babylon. We are now captive under an evil administration. They never worshipped idols after they came out, and the synagogues were established. Perhaps we will develop small groups into house churches. May God’s will and purpose be revealed to His remnant church, and His will be done!

I agree with your comments and will add that what is most important in the coming days is the relationship that each of us has with Jesus. He has sustained us in the past, He is sustaining us now, and He will sustain us in the future. I encourage all of us to seek Jesus sincerely, earnestly, and steadfastly. He is Emmanuel, God with us. He has given us the authority to bind the evil and loose the heavens to impact the events on earth. Let us continue to love Him with all of hearts, souls, minds and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Let us wait upon Him and renew our strength. Isaiah 40:28-31 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching his understanding. He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Let us be intentional in waiting on Him; in His presence to regain our strength both physically and spiritually.

I fully believe extensive fraud was committed in the Nov.3 election. Why we/God allowed this to not be recognized I do not understand. Were all of the people including the Supreme Court being paid big bucks to not recognize what was happening. We have prayed about this almost constantly since the info started coming out. I am sure others have prayed as well. Are we to become another Venezuela? I am sure God did not want that to be the outcome but unless there is a tremendous change in the hearts of a lot of folks we will become another Cuba. This is not what God wanted. Were we not right in Spirit? Were we not right in our beliefs? Were We not intense enough in our prayers? I don’t know the answer but if there is not a dramatic change quickly we are just another China. That thought is totally depressing. Did we not pray for the right help? We need a big move very quickly, which I would be glad to be a part of, but how? Somebody tell me please.
I have been a worshipping Lutheran for many years but I just don’t know where that has led us?

The Gibeonite Deception.
3On hearing what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai, the inhabitants of Gibeonb
4formed their own scheme. They chose provisions for a journey, making use of old sacks for their donkeys, and old wineskins, torn and mended.
5They wore old, patched sandals and shabby garments; and all the bread they took was dry and crumbly.
6Thus they journeyed to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal, where they said to him and to the Israelites, “We have come from a far-off land; now, make a covenant with us.”c
7But the Israelites replied to the Hivites,* “You may be living in land that is ours. How, then, can we make a covenant with you?”
8But they answered Joshua, “We are your servants.” Then Joshua asked them, “Who are you? Where do you come from?”
9They answered him, “Your servants have come from a far-off land, because of the fame of the LORD, your God. For we have heard reports of all that he did in Egyptd
10and all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites beyond the land, because of the fame of the LORD, your God. For we have heard reports of all that he did in Egyptd
10and all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites beyond the Jordan,e Sihon, king of Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, who lived in Ashtaroth.
11So our elders and all the inhabitants of our land said to us, ‘Take along provisions for the journey and go to meet them. Say to them: “We are your servants; now make a covenant with us.”’
12This bread of ours was still warm when we brought it from home as provisions the day we left to come to you, but now it is dry and crumbly.
13Here are our wineskins, which were new when we filled them, but now they are torn. Look at our garments and sandals; they are worn out from the very long journey.”
14Then the Israelite leaders partook of their provisions, without inquiring of the LORD. https://bible.usccb.org/bible/joshua/9

There were probably some gullible Trump supporters that were fooled by Antifa and there was plenty of anger and frustration at the damage done to the republic but the set up had to come from high up. I don’t think it started with the capitol police. We know from these verses that elaborate deceptions are nothing new and that they will increase in the last days:
13But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse, deceivers and deceived.
https://bible.usccb.org/bible/2timothy/3
We are right to keep praying:
The Parable of the Persistent Widow.
1* Then he told them a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.a He said,
2“There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
3And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, ‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
4For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
5* b because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.’”
6The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
7Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them?
8I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” https://bible.usccb.org/bible/luke/18

I prayed in repentance to Almighty God, who created all things for his pleasure. Like Daniel I prayed for this country and the sinful nature of it’s inhabitants. I begged God like Millions of others to forgive and spare us as a nation. I prayed that God would not allow Donald J .Trump to take this country into Communism with himself set up as the Dictator. Praise God He heard our cry. All who are caught up in Idol worship of Trump would never see his Hitler personality nor would they recognize his Authoritarian infested wordings, they would not know that his famous photo shoot at that church was him telling what his aim was for America this coming Presidential Term. They are all to into Trump worship. Though a few have now caught up to what his plans for us and the country, it took the riot at the capital to slap them in the face about it. Praise be to God, Trump lost the election fair and with out any fraud whatsoever, He is a liar and will never ever own up to lying, but he knows that he lost the election to Biden, the one person he thought he was to hip and popular to lose too. But God is real, and answers sincere prayers. He is not into politics either. But when a people acknowledges their sins and shortcomings before Him, and sincerely asks for mercy God forgives and complies. Trump’s 70 million plus supports are less in numbers than the 80million plus voters who checked their vote for Biden. No machines or hand miscount cheating or stealing took the election from him. But the way he behaved after the election came in for Biden, says that Trump and his crowd had something fishy going on, the reason he kept saying he was going to win, but it backfired on them. So now that God are giving America another chance to live under the freedom of a Democratic Republic, and not having to ajust to Trump, trying to be like Putin over us. Please lets turn away from the wrong living and making those wrong choices in His face and give God the Reverence that is due Him.

Attack on the Intercessors:

The pushback makes sense. The stakes are high….Big opposition means big spoils. So, instead of cowering at demonic opposition to God’s stated will and heart in a matter….be happy! The shaking means – we ARE going the right direction. Shaking and pushback is not the fruit- it is the wind/waves but Jesus says “Hush be still!.”

When Jesus declared Isaiah 60 in the synagogue…a violent mob tried to murder him at that moment. God delivered him. When Paul preached in Ephesus- a violent mob was gathered….But God delivered him. When there is a strong violent response to the Word of God or the will of God….this is BATTLE not fruit.

We have become accustomed to false peace and complacency…but we are called to rule and reign in the spirit through prayers and decrees.

No- to striving in the natural. NO to any form of violence. BUT YES to bold, fearless fire filled prayers and declarations about the promises God has given us. He has told us of many things: Some are hard…but all are glorious:

1. A world shaking revival
2. Heart healing that sweeps through his people
3. The US President Donald Trump being re-elected to a second term despite mass oppposition
4. Fraud and corruption being exposed to a degree previously unimagined in the USA
5. Boldness in the church
6. Times of suffering for your faith or being mocked in the public square (USA)

Refuse confusion, division, doubt….time has not changed anything and He is outside of time. Let us continue to pray together in UNITY, LOVE and grace. I don’t judge people who think differently…I sow grace but I will still pray in FAITH because my Daddy does not lie!

#5! God has given us hundreds of words….Has He changed His mind? If you ask Him for bread- will He give you a snake? He is a good father- don’t look at the giants in the land….the imperfections of our Presidents, the weaknesses in ourselves….God has promised a miracle result that will stun us and give Him all of the glory. STAND still and see the salvation of your God! Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

His WORD is true…and He has given us 100’s of words that all say the same thing. President Trump will be our President and is – in fact- the winner. The enemy can speak lies loudly through many- but He is defeated. Stand fast Intercessors! Don’t allow despair, doubt and unbelief to still your joy at what God is doing.

About dates and times….My heart is not set on a DATE. Even 1/20 is not “the date.” Just wait…and don’t waiver….His timing IS perfect and you will rejoice in the streets.

Like Kat Kerr says…..Get cake and be ready to celebrate the power of your God! 🙂

    Nailed it.

    I believe the prophets got it right, but the timing of everything is the Lords!
    Wait on the Lord and don’t dictate time tables to Him!
    In the end, we’ll all glorify him, when we see the total deliverance is His doing…alone.

    Jesus’s blood redeemed us, justified us and continually sanctifies us!

Of the top three points above, I concur. However, God is still on the throne. Also, I have had a strong check against standing fully with Pres. Trump and the GOP, though I had been an active member for years. The reason: Pride & Arrogance! God hates ALL sin and who are we to judge a man’s heart? But by actions, a person reveals what is within. And by His words, the heart speaks. So…let’s pray for both Pres. Trump & President Biden – a man who has known sorrow and has been affected by his own son’s sins and perhaps, his own. Can God in Heaven not draw a Catholic man into full-on trust and obedience when placed in the Highest Seat in the Nation? Can He not heal hearts and turn Kamala Harris towards the real needs of the nation? Let’s trust that our Father in Heaven knows the way the Kingdom will go forth. We assume the worst due to legislation passed decades back and permitted to stay in place these past four years, yet great gains were made on the Supreme Court! (Yes I know about the risk of packing the court…) but doesn’t the possibility exist for many to seek spiritual answers once again? God is a God of both judgement and mercy. Have mercy on your Church, Heavenly Father. May we repent deeply, be cleansed fully, and rise to shine as stars, in the land, pointing the way to Jesus. we serve a Holy God!

Hi Dave,
I’ve been pretty much thinking the same way as you. No matter the state of our country or who is in office God is on the throne and no one is impeaching Him!!
I’m not happy about anything that happened but this is what we have. I will continue to pray for Godly leaders and for revival in our country. In the meantime it’s going to be a bumpy ride!!
God bless you and all you’re doing!!

The power behind our prayers is LOVE, the sum total of God’s being. We must pray in faith, or our prayers cannot be answered. First of all, the prayers must be prayed according to His Will. Praying FOR, is more powerful than praying AGAINST. Paul’s Eph.1 prayer begins by praying for wisdom & revelation knowledge of the Truth so that we (they) can know Him better. That should certainly be our goal in praying particularly for those in places of authority. I think our prayers have been answered in the election of Pres. Trump. He has truly sought the Lord and embraced the prayers and wisdom of men and women of God. He is not perfect. Do you identify?

    Valeta Bush you are right about praying in Love. Also we must speak the truth about every situations in every circumstance. President Trump did only what was good for him, never apologized for any wrong doings , nor did he recant any of his lies, But he sought to profit in them. Even in the ones he made up and told about the election.

In the words of Leonard Ravenhill on page 110 of his book, “Why Revival Tarries”:

“Jesus said, “Go ye!” but He also said, “Tarry until!” Let any man shut himself up for a week with only bread and water, with no books except the Bible, with no visitor except the Holy Ghost, and I guarantee, my preacher brethren, that that man will either break up or break through and out. After that, like Paul, he will be known in hell!

John the Baptist was in God’s School of Silence, the wilderness, until the day of his showing forth. Who was better fitted for the task of stirring a torpid nation from its sensual slumber than this sun-scorched, fire-baptized, desert-bred prophet–sent of GOD with a face like the judgment morning? In his eyes was the light of GOD, in his voice was the authority of GOD, and in his soul was the passion of GOD! Who, I ask, could be greater than John? Truly, “he did no miracle,” that is, he never raised a dead man; but he did far more–he raised a dead nation!”

Isaiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.”

Please LORD, open our eyes, that we may see the reason for unanswered prayer. In Jesus Name. Amen.

James 5:16 The fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

I believe that God, in His great love and mercy, allows judgment on wickedness for the purpose of turning people to Him. Maybe He knows that only drastic circumstances will cause people to see the Truth and turn to Him. He is not willing that anyone should perish but that all should have eternal life in Him. He knows all things and is not surprised by anything. We must keep our eyes of faith and hope on Him, not on anyone or anything else, no matter what things may seem. “God is still on the throne, and He doth remember His own!”

Dear Heavenly Father, You are King of kings and Lord of lords. You teach us how to live in Romans 12:9-21: Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord. “BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK, FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS UPON HIS HEAD.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

God is not done with this nation. Evil will not triumph. These United States are Gods country, the founding fathers had their instructions and the constitution was drafted and was based on the principals of Gods word. It has been promised to us in II Chronicles 7:14 That if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways than will I hear from Heaven forgive them of their sins and heal their land. Millions of Gods people in America have been praying a long time and God has heard. He will accomplish what He promised. We His people must keep praying and He will pour out His Spirit in these last days and this country, these United States, will once again be remembered as a Christian nation. The unborn will be protected. Children will be taught biblical principals. Churches will be free to worship and the Holy Spirit of God will fill the hearts of many. Stay focused, keep praying. Trust God!

What may many intercessors be feeling now but not have the courage to say aloud? Many of us are shocked that the exact opposite of what we’ve been praying and fasting for has happened. We may be grieving most of all because it seems that our praying was ignored by God. He allowed evil to win.

Our hearts need healing. We need to find peace of mind. We need to know whether we can truly trust our God.

I think that for all of us who are feeling abandoned or betrayed by the Lord, the first step toward finding peace may be to practice Psalm 62:8. It says, “Trust in Him at all times, you people. Pour out your hearts to Him! Our God is a refuge for us.” Our Father loves us (even if we can’t feel it right now), and He welcomes us, He even seeks us, to pour out our hearts to Him–to be gut level honest about what we are thinking and feeling (not trying to be “spiritual” but being a raw, hurting human).

The psalmists had strong, intimate relationships with God, and they regularly expressed anger, hurt, and bewilderment toward the Lord when they didn’t understand what He was doing. For example, read Psalm 89:38-51. In speaking about a man who dearly loved his country, as we intercessors do, verses 42-43 say, “You have exalted the right hand of his foes; you have made all his enemies rejoice. You have turned back the edge of his sword and have not supported him in battle….”

We can’t find healing, we can’t make sense of what has recently happened in America when our hopes were dashed, and we can’t come to a deeper, stronger level of faith until we are as honest with God as the psalmists were. God cares about our bewilderment. He can take it if we beat on his fatherly chest in our anger and grief. Once we have honestly and fully poured out our frustrations on him and “upchucked everything” churning inside us, we will collapse into his fatherly arms, and he will be able to start comforting us and giving us a new perspective.

I believe we intercessors can have abundant hope that God is in the process of pulling off something absolutely amazing in our country, a healing and restoration beyond what any of us can envision! In the past months, thousands upon thousands of God’s children have placed our nation in His big hands and asked Him to heal it–and to heal all of us! He has listened to every prayer. Each one has opened the door for him to step in and be God in our land. The Great I AM! We have released Him to do what only He can do. And He is doing it. Despite how things may seem, He has rolled up His heavenly sleeves and is getting to work!

But His ways aren’t our ways. We want the remedy quick and easy. But part of God’s dramatic nature is often for things to get much worse before they get wonderfully better. You can read that in many stories in the Bible–look them up. Let them give you courage, hope, and a better understanding of the grand style of the God we are trusting in. For example, read the story of the three Hebrew boys in Daniel 3:1-30. It got as bad as possible: God allowed the evil rulers to toss His children into the fiery inferno, all for the purpose of producing an astonishing “revival” in that very godless land. Quick and easy isn’t often God’s style. Stunningly glorious is God’s style, and it can take time to get all the pieces in place.

We all need to hang on to Him in faith while He does His wild and awesome God-sized work. In answer to our prayers, God is creating a healing for United States of America that only He can accomplish, for the great glory of His name! The God-story certainly isn’t over yet. The drama is just beginning to ramp up! Our part now is to grow in our faith in Him. And pouring out our hearts in honest frustration and fear is the starting point of a new and deeper intimate trust in our wonderful God.

I do believe God is on the throne. He is a righteous God. We are not to give up but we are to press on with prayer, faith and thanking God in advance for the wonderful thing he is going to do for this nation. Faith puts our prayers into the courtroom of God!!! The problem isn’t that God can’t show up big.The issue is are we going to give up!! Our children, grandchildren and future generations are depending on us to fight the good fight and don’t stop until we see the breakthrough. We fight with the word of God and against principalities and darkness which the world knows nothing of!!! Jesus died on the cross for us so let’s not grow weary in fighting the good fight for righteous. No one said it was going to be easy but it is well worth it!! Stand up Saints and press forward with God Almighty going before us. Greater is he that is in us then he that is in the world.

Thank you Dave for your faithfulness and willing heart to serve this nation and our God in this way for such a time as this.
There are many messages from everyone that has a voice and many faith based leaders with every belief you listed.
Yes This is heartbreaking to feel we have lost our freedom and dreams to see Gods will done on earth. There is a barrage of questions with many asking why and how did this happen. I tell them I don’t have the answers and I don’t need the answers.
What I know is God’s word and God’s character. And in my generation Donald Trump is the best leader to align with God’s word and our Judeo- Christian foundation of America.
What I know is that my God still sits on the throne, he has not surrendered His authority and He still reigns over all.
My only question is simply who am I to be for such a time as this. the witness, the light, the encourager, the disciple!
thank you Eileen Trovato

Thank you for this commentary. We are not omniscient and don’t know the mind of God. When I am confused, I think about the facts of who stands for evil and who has acted for good. President Trump is a weak vessel and we have witnessed that. It helps us remember who we are trusting in–Trump is not our savior! But I do appreciate all he has done in the past 4 years and pray that God will be merciful to him and encourage his heart. I look to God and wait on him in expectation!

How can our vote count if the election is corrupt and stolen by a corrupt opposition party? We are not having our voice heard in a sham election such as we have been subject to in 2020. The real question is how does America justify allowing this. I know God is in control and we have to be vigilant and diligent to trust Him. I cannot blame our Lord if we are being judged for the godlessness in our country. And I guess this is the way we pay. May God help the lost souls who do not know you Lord. They are deceived by the enemy as the Bible says in the end times. My prayers go out to all who are in need of your Salvation by your sacrifice on the cross. In Jesus Name. Amen.

I assume that many who have been holding out hope that President Trump would remain in office are awake to the truth now. We certainly wanted him to remain in office and are very troubled by what we now have. But, as others have said, it wasn’t in God’s plan for him to stay.

The one character trait in Pres. Trump that seemed to me to be more and more obvious was his pride in himself. He recognized that America needed God and believed that but still sought to be recognized himself for all things that were accomplished. And, as Proverbs declares, “Pride comes before a fall”.

Now we have to trust in God totally. That should not be a new thought. And we probably need to pray for ourselves that we avoid becoming negative and cynical in the weeks and months ahead. Our “energy” will be needed to pray for evil to be overcome and for new, strong, God honoring people to come forth. Also we need to pray for pastors and religious leaders to speak up for what is right and good in God’s eyes.

    Dear Lord,

    The last time I checked our Lord Jesus Christ was the only perfect person that walked on this earth. I am broken behind comprehension at the hated-filled demonic evil people are trying to take our country and our President down. Yes, he’s makes mistakes however; he has done more than any other sitting President ever has. I pray for him many times a day. I sure as heck can’t toss a stone at him…. When Hezekiah admitted before God that he was a righteous man, and perfect, he didn’t mean that he had no sin. It was that he kept moving in the direction of perfection (Isaiah 38:3, 2 Chronicles 31:20–21). … Jesus says that no one is perfect except God. If only God is perfect, then, “how can man become perfect (God)?” Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. I will remain in my faith that at the end of this nightmare, GOD will win this war…

      KNOWING THAT GOD IS THE ONLY PERFECT BEING is why we should be able to admit that all those prophets missed God !!!. Have enough understanding to know that Satan would never win over God, if God willed for Trump to had won the election Trump would have won it. But God did allow for us to see just what is in Trump’s heart, and showed us his true intentions which is to overthrow this Democracy, and become the Dictator of the Country. That’s why he said he is the LAW and ORDER President, meaning his law and his order is what he wishes to set up. His words and actions, especially his behavior after he lost he election, ( he know he lost, he know it was not stolen, and that there was no fraud or rigging carried out, his own people told him, plus there is no evidence to uphold that lie he kept telling). and since he couldn’t get anyone to do his dirty, by overturning (steal) the election results for him, he appeared to just bold faced do what he intended to do all along, just take over the country. But the LORD Reigns, those who believe Trump are most pitiful. Lets pray he comes to repentance, before to late.

I too was saddened by the outcome of last week, having prayed ernestly myself and with my weekly prayer group. But I know that God’s plans see much further out than we do, and that He IS in control and that perhaps the outcomes He desires will only come through adversity. We continue to pray for Congress and all our leaders and ask God to move in and change hearts. Intercessors are such a blessing to me- for trustworthy information, encouragement and a Godly worldview! Keep being faithful and strong to the calling God has put before you!

With faith in God, anything is possible. As much as I yearn and pray for Pres. Trump to be re-elected, that could be possible as well. God can still perform a miracle, and I will not underestimate His power. There are some Prophets that have predicted Trump’s re-election. I pray they are not false prophets. The Bible does warn of false prophets in the last days and will deceive many. I plan to keep my trust in Almighty God!

Terry Cook
January 11, 2021

With the exception of the 5th point, what others are saying is understandable and reasonable. But to say that Trump will be re-elected–at least in this cycle–is presumptuousness, not faith IMO. The forces of evil have won this battle. But take heart followers of Christ, we know who wins the war.

I agree that I KNOW God is in control. None of these happenings took Him by surprise. I will continue to pray and exercise my freedom of speech granted in the Constitution. I have been preparing for seventy years for the possibility of persecution of Christians in the United States of America. I’ve seen what has happened in other nations, and why do we think we are immune? I continue to pray for President Trump and his family, for physical protection, physical, spiritual and emotional health. May God draw the Trump family close to His heart and make them strong as a family unit together. May God increase hunger for Himself across this nation, and may the call to repentance and salvation go forth strong while we still have time. Jesus is coming soon,

    As a mortal I took my eyes off the Lord, and began to mourn at our current circumstances and responded perhaps like the Israelites, who in leaving both the slavery and “comfort zone” of Egypt and faced with the prospect of uncertainty and disappointment as the trials of their deliverance unfolded. Leaving Egypt with broken hearts and spirits, they may also have felt in the process of their deliverance at times abandoned and left to battle alone what may have seemed like insurmountable problems that were before them (and behind them)..for they had to learn on the fly to moment by moment seek God for every thing.. this all stretches and tests to produce a faith like gold, which is the desired effect of trials? and James encourages us to “Count it all joy” I learned this because in a nutshell, my faith failed me today.
    Then.. in a gracious act of mercy God’s Holy Spirit took pity upon me and strengthened me immediately with his word and presence..and sadly, I dont feel that too often! “Do not be afraid and wait for God to act” came so boldly from my mouth.. and it bolstered my faith immeadiately.. so needing to be reassured when the clamps of fear and despair had begun to imprison my heart.. A little later, I learned more about God’s great pity and love for us that brought Him down to our level in His Son Christ Jesus so that we might be raised up from our terribly lost state of sin and death, while reading the verses in Isaiah 63:7-14 which so touched my heart and revived it further… Oh, dear brothers and sisters to focus on our wonderful Saviour and his and our Father’s plan of redemption for all who would receive Him.. He truly is our Captain of the Hosts and Commander in Chief and He is the one to whom we can fully trust and turn for our lives are truly in his hand every minute of every day.. He has not left nor forsaken us because He loves us with a such tenderness and compassion and pity, even in our most horrible state of wretchedness. Despite our unworthiness, God has has made us more than conquerors through Him who loved us and paid for every rebellious and hard heart and given us hearts instead that are able to love Him and each other. The victory is already His and ours through our Wonderful Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Keep the banners flying high and you shall see the salvation of the Lord as He has heard our cries and will answer and heal and restore, because He is faithful and keeps His Word, He will not forsake the works of His hands.

The takeover by the left is nothing short of treason. An invasion from within that totally disregards the safeguards of our Constitution. It has just been allowed to happen. From the riots in the cities that destroyed people’s property and livelihoods and took the lives of innocents, to the fear mongering distortion of Covid numbers, to illegal actions taken to steal the election. I have watched the church (for the most part) sit empty and silent. Pretending it’s all OK? What will wake up the people of God?

    Trump and his supporters are they who tried to overthrow the Democracy, the Treason is on his camp. It is their lawlessness that climaxed the story. It tells who words are from God Almighty, and who is holding on to fake imaginations. God don’t play fleshy games, if God said it it would’ve come to pass. But we have a right to hope and continue to intercede For God’s will to be done, not us continuing to hope God will make HIMSELF A LIE, JUST TO PLEASE OUR FANTACY.

    I agree, I would have left that comment out as well. The fate of America and the outcome of an election whether fake or honest does not alter the nature of God, His trustworthiness, His love for all men, and His faithfulness to His Word. He cannot lie, and He is just. His spirit dwells in those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord. His ability to communicate with His people in any circumstance is unhindered by political outcomes. Our first source of hearing from God is through His Word, and we are not to set our heart/affections on anything in this world but on the things of God. We may feel rightfully disappointed in the world’s outcomes, but we must be clear that it is not God who disappoints us ever!! The sooner we release our disappointment in the world’s ways to our Father, the sooner we find peace in trusting Him in all things. Bottom line, His desire is that all men might be saved. As we approach the end of the age I ask myself how is He working in me to achieve His desires, and may His desires be my desires !

Stay strong in the Lord and stay mentally and physically in the moment not giving up any ground no matter what our eyes see or ears hear!

This was a stolen election and I can’t believe our republican elected officials at least would have wanted truth. What has become of our nation! Praise God for Ted Cruz. I want to believe for a miracle of the ones who manipulated the votes to Biden to come forth. I want a Red Sea moment but I must put my trust in God like shadrack, Meshack and Abendego.

    Pat Bates please release that lie from your heart, this election was not , NOT stolen, rigged nor was there any fraud. Trump is a person that refuses to face defeat. With all that went along with the recounting, the courts and his own person who was over the safety of the election told him so, he fired the man because he wouldn’t lie with him. No need in us praying for God to do anything with lies in our hearts. Satan laughs at us putting God in that . If it was God’s will for Trump to be president , Trust God’s written words Trump would be . The Republicans don’t mean anything more to God than the Democrats. We have to stop trying make him mere human. His will has been done in this election, the action of January answers to that. God is Truth as well as love. He don’t play our humanistic political games. He takes down one and exalts another.

The war is much, much bigger than the election. God is using the corona virus and election to wake his warriors up. There is a huge amount of corruption in our government including our “justice” system + an active communist leaning takeover of all the places of power that has apparently been ongoing for years, and too many of us have been asleep. God is answering our prayers for our nation, and responding to those who have been mourning, by fighting for real justice and reformation. All of this was necessary to open our eyes and give us enough resolve not to go right back to sleep. Biblically there are ample examples of things appearing to get worse (Joseph, Esther,children of Israel in Egypt, etc.) before God brings victory, freedom, and authority. He will work all things for good if we stand and believe. All we need is mustard seed of faith and we, enough of us, have it.

I believe without a shadow of a doubt that this election was stolen. I do believe God will reveal all evil schemes and truth will be revealed. I know God will prevail in his perfect timing and is in the fire with President Trump and will bring him and his family, his church and the God fearing men and women of this country out of the fire with him safely.
“Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you cannot see.”
We are certain God is not in the fire with those who are evil.
Thank you prayer team for all you do and have done to keep us informed on what to pray for. I’ve been so faithful to pray everyday for President Trump because of your daily email to prompt me.
So very thankful for all of you. I will never give up that God is going to move mountains.🙏🏼🙌🏼🤗

I believe that God is up to something big in the coming days. The prayers for righteousness & justice in our nation & the world have not fallen on deaf ears, but are being gathered for an out pouring of God’s Spirit on the earth like we have never seen before. The earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord like the waters cover the seas. I see this outpouring as bringing about a victorious, overcoming church who rule & reign with Christ on the earth. I think that an errant doctrine & eschatology has led much of the church into a way of thinking that has limited the church & rendered her to being ineffective in a lot of ways. God is shaking this nation & the world & we are experiencing this, that whatever is not founded on the Rock is being revealed in our lives individually & corporately as a body. Judgement does begin in the house of God. Not condemning, but exposing what is in our hearts & minds, where we are putting our hope. I see this as a preparation of His Bride to rule & reign, but we have to go through this to purify us & bring us up to where Christ is so we can effectively reign with Him. I believe we will see an unprecedented time of righteousness & justice (it’s the foundation of Gods throne ps.89:14) coming to our nation, much like in the time of Esther. This verse also says lovingkindness & truth go before Him. There is a tension there in that verse that I think we need to get a hold of. The way that I see it in scripture is that the welfare of the nation rests with the people of God. I see that when God gave Israel the king they demanded, He placed that responsibility not on the leader, but the people. Also 2Chron. 7:14. I believe that God gave us a “non religious” yet God fearing president in Donald Trump. A man who I believe was & is being saved (just like all of us), but was being judged with a judgement that none of us in the church would want for ourselves. The body of Christ has been just as divided if not more than the nation over him. I believe that God can turn this thing quickly (ps 81), if we will humble ourselves & our proud opinions & walk in His ways. When Jesus came on the scene, the things that opposed Him were religious mindsets & traditions of men. We have to allow God to deal with this in all of us, so we can join Him in what He wants to bring about in our land.As for how this will play out, I have no idea, but I do contend that God has declared His intension that President Trump will be a two term President. We do play a part in partnering with the prophetic word. My experience is that God declares, we agree, then He conditions us to receive & walk in that promise. As we allow His process to work, we are being conformed into His image & can reign with Him from glory to glory. I’m still standing with our President & will continue to, we’ll see how this plays out. I prefer to head right into the promised land & hope we don’t need another 4 years of oppression. I think of Paul when he said to the Corinthians “shall I come to you with a rod, or with love & a gentle spirit?” May God give us, His people, a repentant heart to align with Him. He will have His way, let’s let go & join Him.

Another must read at this time, the Lord led me to Ex.14, the whole chapter is significant especially vs. 10-16

As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. 11They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!” (very discouraged)

13Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

15Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.

BY FAITH TAKE YOUR STAND AND BE STILL, THE LORD IS FIGHTING FOR US!!

Note: Remember when Jesus told the woman in Mark 5:34, “your faith has healed you”? It is our FAITH that we believe God is fighting for us and we have the VICTORY, in Jesus Name!! He is the same today!! Praise the Lord!!

I can tell you I was so grieved after the incident at the Capital. I cried and I prayed and I worshipped. I have had a peace in me that I am glad is there. It has caused me to look to God in a way I haven’t been. I feel and see the strength and love of God that I didn’t before. I also have a joy I didn’t have before. I am closer to God now than ever. Also there is no fear, I have a confidence in God that is stronger than it was. However it is sad what happened but opened my eyes. I believe God wants a people that will stand but not be destructive. I believe God is wanting us to reach out and show His love like we have not done. I cannot explain where or how this came to me but it was during Christmas that God did something in me that I cannot pin point. However I am stronger and feel the urgency to show the light and person of Jesus more not than ever. But not be fearful or unrest. I am at peace.

Father in Jesus name. I come to you humbly declaring that you are Lord over all. I am looking up and declaring the Word in that we are overcomers and whatever comes we will look to You. I pray a peace to cover this land. I pray for Godly leaders in our country. I pray a return to you like we have never seen before. I will declare the Word of the Lord over our land and pray a hedge of protection over our country and our leaders as well as the citizens of this country. I plead the blood of Jesus over our country, this beautiful United States. I pray the angel armies will come round about and protect us and the United States. I pray for President Trump as I believe he needs your love, understanding and strength. I declare we will overcome that your Word and your will will come to pass. Thank you Lord for your Love, mercy and grace. I exalt you in the highest. Glory to you Lord. I praise you and Worship you. I believe in your Power and grace to us.

The Bible says thet we should pray for those in authority so we can lead godly and peaceable lives. I think part of the problem is two-fold. Number 1 – many Christians do NOT pray very often for people who are in government leadership positions…that includes not jsut the President but city councils, mayors, state legislators, governors, the Senate, the House, Court judges, the Cabinet. Number 2 – “those in authority” in my opinion, does not mean just people within the government…it includes business owners, boards of directors, police departments, fire departments, medical professionals, military leaders, college, high school and elementary school teachers and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the moms and dads who are in charge of raising up the next generation.
We celebrate a National Day of Prayer each May in America – a lot of people participate. But that once a year event needs to carry over to a daily committment. I am guilty of not following my own words here, but strongly recommend that starting now – it’s time to get to work…pray without ceasing

I believe that this is a Romans 8:28 situation. And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose. God can and DOES make lemonade from lemons……I believe that God used President Trump to SHAKE our nation. I think the way has been prepared now for the ecclesia to continue in prayer and intervention. I have received what i think are some God downloads about this next admin. These are that I have been directed to pray for Joe Biden and his administration as issues comes to light. If God can use Saul/Paul he can use Joe Biden. This is where I will keep the focus of my prayers and as God directs.

    Melissa, I too have felt directed to pray for Joe Biden and I will. I too believe President Trump was used to shake the nation and I am just one who has prayed for “shaking” for years…in conclusion, I thought this morning of Jesus on the cross. He took the sin of the world, all of it: past, present, and to come. Nothing takes Him by surprise, He is our Savior who sees and saves. I pray the Lord continues to direct you perfectly into His Will. Amen

    I agree. My heart has been saddened by my observation that many believers put their trust in Trump and not in Jesus. We need to be SO careful. I believe many Christians have been deceived and were not willing to look at ALL of Trumps actions and words.
    Many of my friends would not discuss his misbehaviors but said “he’s a baby Christian” and therefore excusable.

Ps. 20:7 “Some trust in chariots and some in horses,but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”
Our trust is not in a man, a government, a nation, but in a holy God who is still on the throne with the government on His shoulders. When fear and anxiety try to enter our thoughts and our hearts, look to God just as David did as he faced Goliath, and Moses did as he faced the Red Sea with the chariots of Egypt closing in on the children of Israel. Our God is not limited. Cry out in repentance for our nation that we will once again shine God’s light to the world.

It may well be judgment day on the church first. When true believing pastors, but pious and “too good for politics” stand aloof while God’s choice in a president took a beating on their behalf and join in on the dislike of Trump and have continually listened to the spirit of error coming from the false “prophets” in the media, Democrat party etc, of a four year long mind siege character assassination and are now gleeful as the demons are at his downfall. These prissy pastors are so relieved. What shallow thinking they have over tweets. So many righteous acts and policies and freedoms won back for us all especially for Christians. We are not talking about difference of opinions but the division between listening to the spirit of error or the spirit of truth. What are born again even Spirit baptized people doing listening to that spirit of deception coming out of the media? Reject God’s gift to us is like rejecting him. All this affects the self righteous Pharisee side of us. This for me is enormously disgusting. I know exactly where this Trump derangement syndrome has come from and where leftist talking points are coming from so when believers especially, repeat it, I am shocked and grieved. Where is the spirit of truth in these leaders and followers? Where is the Holy Spirit of discernment? I’ve talked with them but they will not listen. My experience of spirit filled churches and reach out churches is they don’t mention anything going on outside the church walls and as a church organization their prayers are non-existent or pretty short and lame. God could be saying, OK in your high and mighty self, you rejected my champion I gave you, here you go, get the government you deserve. You asked not, and you are unthankful in your piety. And Biden and the socialists usher in darkness. On the other hand God may have something up his sleeve that will turn the election results around still and bring judgment and shame on the left for their shameless evil. This seems unlikely at this point but what about all those interceding around the world for our country? I am praying earnestly for judgment on the wicked as God sees fit, to silence them, cut off their power, divide them, remove and replace, jail sentences, confuse and divide their tongues take away their sponsors, etc. As God sees fit! They have been doing incredible injustices and damages and lies and have been getting away with everything for 60 some years. It is my understanding that when communism takes over a nation it has always been the churches fault by not being the light, the salt, not interceding, not being involved and informed and not informing, not saving the society but only saving souls. An un-salty church will be trampled my men. The church is the bulwark of any nation. etc etc. We who have been praying for decades and feeling confident because we thought everyone was praying and repenting in the church but it doesn’t seem to be so. I don’t know if a certain percentage of the church needs to be praying or in the right perspectives or stance to hold back judgment or what.

    I say Amen! except for one statement that seems derogatory about saving souls…leading people to Christ is #1 because our hearts need changed first. I observe that most churches aren’t doing that! They even have an attitude about sharing God’s Word to save souls. I believe when our hearts are right with Christ we truly will get involved….God leads us in various ways.

When I asked God about the election results in November, he told me it is not over yet. I am still standing on His words to me no matter what or how bleak things look right now. You are right, we can not give up the fight to have a God government. He was telling me and showing me how all throughout history, when one faction does not get their way in politics, they will stir up and cause riots, sometimes even killing the opposition. Why do they do that, because it works. This should not come to a shock to us that our enemy would use such tactics. God cannot go against evil peoples intentions. They were counting on us being peaceful and not fighting back in the natural on Wednesday. He gives us all a free will. He also reminded me that he did not come for this world but for his Kingdom and his Kingdom is not of this world. We can but choose who we are going to serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Brother Dave I am so grateful for making this platform possible for us believers to support,pray and comfort each other in this dire and prophetic state of affairs we find ourselves in.May The Lord bless you and yours.

I pray for The peace our Father in Heaven promises to give us even while in the eye of the storm.

My comment is in lieu of what is unfolding before our eyes in broad day light,so to speak.
I grew up among 9 of my siblings,my father who passed on a few years ago,was an upstanding believer,a man of few words and he spoke in parables and proverbs.This week, while I was marveling and reflecting on what has been going on in our nation, I was reminded of a profound saying my father told.
It fitted exactly well with what I have been suspecting was in the making all along but hoped I was wrong until I couldn’t but see it coming to a sad fruition before my eyes.
These are the words my father said : “For any establishment to collapse,it doesn’t take wood peckers from without,but termites from within.”
Establishment could be,a home,a business,a government,believe it or not,the church too.
Remember Judas? He was one of Jesus’ disciples,he walked and talked with Jesus,while basking in his position as a treasurer.One day at the dinner table,Jesus said “One of you will betray me” They were dumbfounded and asked,”Lord,is it I,is it I ?” None of them could suspect that one of them could do such a horrible and unthinkable thing.Jesus replied that the one who dips his hand in the same bowl with mine is the one.Little did they know,that Judas unbeknownst to them was waiting for an opportune moment to strike,and strike he did,which was the ultimate betrayal.Judas was a wolf in sheep’s clothing.He was a social gospel preacher, a humanitarian.When Mary poured her worth-one-year salary perfume on Jesus ,he threw a fit saying “what a waste,that money could have been used to help the poor” Judas is a picture of The,soon to appear, Antichrist,who will be the epitome of a Socialist humanitarian leader who the world will adore and bow to.If it is possible even the believers will be deceived by this man as Judas did the same to his fellow disciples.Judas served with Jesus for 3 and half years or was it 4 years,no pun intended.In the same manner The Antichrist will lead the world, promising and managing to bring peace prosperity and security for 3 and half years before he turns on humanity by unleashing his fury on the unsuspecting and deluded world.Is it me or are we witnessing a judas,not The Antichrist, in the making? Hmmmmm,3 and half to 4 years can’t be accidental,eh? Guess where Judas run to crying right after he betrayed Jesus? To his masters!And what did they say to him? Get away from us,you were just a tool and he went and hanged himself.Why is that Judases end up doing the same thing with the same demise? The Judas I have been dreading might prove me right and he seems to be doing just that,he too will run to his masters literally crying where they will tell him “get away from us,you were just a ” a little useful idiot” to do our dirty job of deceiving ‘the useless eaters and their leader’ You did a wonderful job now get lost.”
What a de-ja-vu, a dress rehearsal for what is yet to come our way.But take heart,God is on His Throne.

‘The woodpecker’ is one you can’t miss but a’termite’ is insidious,a messenger of Satan who comes with the agenda to steal,kill,and destroy.Lord Jesus give us the ability to discern the Judases among us.

Mark Twain once said,” ” It is easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”
I pray for our president with a heavy heart for it is obvious termites have been close by him.
Lord, your Will be done!Amen

Most of the spiritual/Biblical history that is being shared regarding God’s power and ability to save our nation is at this time Old Testament history. God has reminded me of the miracles He has performed for current day Israel and the one that stands out is the 6 Day War in June of 1967. The surrounding Arab nation’s goal was to wipe Israel off the map. They were poised to annihilate Israel, who was so fearful that they began to dig graves for the thousands they thought would be killed. But God — miracle after miracle happened and Israel won in 6 short days. To view an excellent 10 min. video documentary of those miracles please go to “Six Days of Miracles” on youtube. The Jews reclaimed their ancient homeland, including Jerusalem.
Ungodly forces want to wipe out the freedoms and Godly heritage of our nation but that same God is not unaware nor asleep! Do not be discouraged or lose faith in the fact the God’s timing is not ours and He can do anything however in His timing. When you view the video you will be encouraged!

    Yes, miracles. But the 6 day war wasn’t because of God’s judgement on Israel. It was the enemies attempts to take out God’s people. Our nation has committed grievous sins,as described in Dave’s comment #1. And much of the church has been silent. I think of God’s mercy in sparing Ninevah from destruction,BUT the entire city from king on down repented & cried out to God. That just hasn’t happened in America. Only a believing remnant, repenting for others’ misdeeds

I echo Deborah’s comments below:
He has said three things to me recently
Courage
Study
We will be close to Jesus in being partakers of his suffering.
I know Jesus will be so close together with us in the suffering.
And add a few of my own.
Whenever David went out to war, we would pray to God for direction
and
have the priests praising God before the army as it went out to battle.

If you have ears to hear,
Please praise the Lord God, in the name of Jesus, by the power of the Spirit, claiming
the blood of Jesus as a covering over our military tonight (Saturday night PST and Sunday early morning CST, EST).
Now would be the time to pray with all your heart, mind, and soul.
May the Spirit direct you in prayers tonight and during the day Sunday.
Ps 100, Ps 118
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him; bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
and His faithfulness to all generations”

Dear Dave thank you for your faithfulness it’s a great comfort and help to have IFA to connect with. Agree with all you have said. It’s a sobering scary time. There is only one thing to do keep trusting God and pray. I totally believe that things are coming into the light as we have VB prayed. Its getting harder but as you said the Lord will not forsake us.
He has said three things to me recently
Courage
Study
We will be close to Jesus in being partakers of his suffering.
I know Jesus will be so close together with us in the suffering.
I saw in the spirit him as he was after the scourging fallen under the load of the cross.
This was sobering
But I felt a peace and a confidence
The safest thing will be the turning against each other. As we are already beginning to see in the body of Christ
And yet also a sweet bond and deep love for each other with those who are settled in him and each other
Blessings dear brother

We are a nation divided straight down the middle. We must pray for unity in this nation. United we stand, divided we fall. We must pray for a few good men to surround President Trump and his family. We must pray for strength and protection for the Republican politicians who had the President’s back who didn’t fold under pressure. And we must pray for the Democratic politicians and the Republicans who joined their side to be convicted by the Spirit of God to repent and seek Him first. And we must pray for the word to get out and for the truth about what really happened to be revealed. We need to pray for the journalists in the mainstream media to wake up and take the blinders off so that they would seek to report the truth. We need to pray for the salvation of all the lost souls of this nation and of this world. Remember, God desires that none should perish, no, not even one. Remember, Hell wasn’t meant for man, it was meant for the devil and his demons. Remember, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12) This specter of Communism looming over our nation is a demonic scheme and we must keep this in mind. Above all else, we mustn’t give up hope or lose faith for we serve a great and mighty God and the last time I checked, He was still in control. He is all seeing, all hearing, all knowing, and all wise. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He has not fallen asleep nor forgotten any of his children, no, not one! Finally, we must fervently pray for revival in this nation. The effective, fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16b). This is my prayer for this nation and for the world. Amen! One last word: we must love our neighbor as ourselves. And go out into all the world making disciples of all the nations and baptizing them.

I feel both parties have fueled the pot and both are responsible for national unrest. Even as intercessors we (I) need to seek God individually and ask if we have personally contributed to this in any way. If so, we need to repent accordingly.
A sick person needs rest in order to heal and our nation needs rest. Yes, we are to pray for the sick, but before doing so we are to remove the plank out of our own eye first. Intercession is to pray that we might see things from God’s point of view and pray into that, not pray into our own point of view. There will always be light and darkness, but it’s not our responsibility to dispel the darkness, that God’s. Our responsibility is to bring it before God then trust His wisdom concerning the matter. My soul is troubled by all of this, as is yours, and I’m not going to stop praying because of it, but I do feel that as Christians we should be the ones to step across boundaries & show love to those who think and vote differently. I’m not talking compromise! I‘m talking about being missionaries who are called to our own nation to promote unity and love in order that God might use us to promote His kingdom.
I have been overwhelmed by all the endless “stuff” and I don’t feel alone in this matter. There is not a easy solution to any of it, much less all of it, but I feel the tremendous love of God in his warning us of times like this and how to respond. I am thankful for all of my fellow brothers and sisters who intercede and I do trust that we all are wanting God’s best! I don’t get it all right all the time and do appreciate rebuke when necessary that I might repent and grow so have at it if you feel differently. I’m okay with that! But if like me, you too are concerned about how we can better promote the gospel of love and unity in our land I would love to hear what God is speaking to you. Thank you for welcoming us to comment. As I read over this, I’m not sure I did a good job of making my concerns known, but nonetheless I appreciate the opportunity. Sincerely

We prayed for the truth to be exposed. I believe it is being exposed. President Trump has done so many good things for our country and he gave us a brief reprieve from the godless agenda of the left. But while he acknowledged God and talked about him, he mostly talked about himself and how good he was…not sure I ever heard him give God the glory for the positive outcomes he had. And I believe he was justified in his frustration about the election fraud, but maybe he didn’t remember that God should have been consulted and relied upon for the victory. Ex. 2nd Chronicles chapter 20.

The story is not over and we simply must continue to trust the Lord and continue to stand firm.

We must not waver, continue to stand and pray. Pray for President Trump , his family and all his “mighty men and women” who are true and who stand with him. The “Checkmate” is coming, God has the Checkmate move. Warfare whether spiritual or physical is messy, difficult and uncomfortable. The path to victory is not a “smooth transition.” Do not grow weary, we cannot shrink back because Goliath is screaming his head off. We are praying and have been praying, Eph. 6:10-17, so when we have done all to stand, STAND therefore…and pray. The Lord’s hand is about to move, stand and see the salvation of the Lord. Pray for the President’s health and protection, pray he has a visitation of the Lord to strengthen him. Pray for the Spirit of wisdom that Solomon had be upon Trump and his administration.
Pray for the exposure and removal of the evil ones in gov.
Pray that Trump will complete the work he is to do as President. Abortion must be overturn in Jesus name, child trafficking must be stopped, and many other things. Have faith in God to bless our nation with mercy and grace. The church age is coming to maturity, the bride is going to be glorious.

It is so very obvious to me that mostly the Democrat party, plus RHINOS, & their global elites‘ promotors with their “wargames” (TFA??) schemes have planned this year’s charades with great precision & have succeeded…thus far. I do not know if we are about to enter persecution or if His mercy will allow for our President to finally resume with peace & justice & freedom. But I am reminded of the Philippians verse encouraging us to always remember that Our citizenship** is in Heaven. the USA is not our homeWe Jars of clay are to hold on lightly to the things of this world & keep our eyes on the prize. Why? Because an enemy still has control just a little while longer (Eph 2:1-4). We do not yet have final dominion & rule; that is reserved for the next age in Glory (1 Cor 5). Because this age is just a breath, a vapor. We cannot demand of God our tomorrows (James 4). Our freedom & peace must first be internal; (Phil 4) This* is what He most wants…our trust, deep in our hearts, because we are secure in His love (Eph 3: 15-20) That only comes by testing our faith! In that testing we persevere with the encouragement of the Scriptures unto hope (Rom 15:3).
That said, we continue this battle & wait & watch. Remember the Lord in the Garden…His most difficult of His many sorrows…He feels our pain & agony but wonders how his inner circle can fall asleep So easily at such a time! Let us suffer well at this world’s pains with His strength & determination all the while that we are feeling** great sorrow & confusion. but dont live by the feelings. We must feel but not let them rule; His Spirit must rule (Rom 8, Gal 5). This world is one of longing, for true justice & freedom & righteousness. THAT is our longing. This country gave us a foretaste of the heaven that holds our lasting citizenship & the Potential loss of it is what I believe we are all feeling. Hold lightly dear brothers & sisters. we are not quite home! “& He will will be the stability of our times**”

Thank you Dave for sharing your thoughts.

#5 for God to turnaround and President Trump be re-elected.

I agree with many intercessors that when it is the darkest hour and seems all is loss, God is able to turn this around. Psalm 37:7,10 is clear, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”

God is not yet done with this nation because the forefathers (God fearing men) made a covenant with God to establish a land founded on principles of the Holy Scriptures and freedom to worship.

I believe that God allowed the events to unfold to demonstrate the depth of deceptions, corruptions, sins, wickedness to be expose in order for Him to convict, remove the sin before He will bring about revival and righteousness and good governance for the end time harvest of souls.

When we are weak, God can demonstrate His sovereign power. For no one robs God of his Glory. not Trump, Pence, Supreme Court, or any devices of man.

I have not doubt that the imposter will not assent with a stolen crown. Psalm 125:3 The Scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous; for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil.

To God be the Glory forever and President Trump his anointed servant.

The enemy has LOST. We have WON….even though it might not look like it just yet. Hang on in faith in God, praise, and Thanksgiving. We are a blessed generation who have been prepared for this day. Truly we are being stretched, but that is OK. Hard times make strong men. Strong men make good times. Good times can make weak men. Hard times will make them strong again. We have been girded up with New Strength and will continue to be. We were born for such a time as this, so let’s take it for all its worth. This is our day to Shine for JESUS !! Keep praying for Pres. Trump, a lot and even more, in these next days and couple of weeks. We are not of those who “give up” just because it didn’t happen the way we thought it should. Check out this video below of a prophetic Word by Pastor Kent Christmas. It will thrill you. God is still at work. Don’t give up your JOY and HOPE. We all who have read the Bible know how God works. He comes rolling in at the LAST moments to display His Splendor, and no man can get the credit for it. Thus it is HE who is Glorified and not any man. Let us Rejoice in God our Savior and the Savior of our country.

Stick till the end of it; she lays it all out how we proceed…. She is FULL of the Word of God and this fight is still on! If we could all just get on this same page. Fight on!!!

At this point I am challenged to know the truth about those who overtook the Capitol. I stopped watching news coverage because I don’t believe the media gives accurate information. I grieve that we as a nation have not obeyed God’s Commandments. Please keep the truth coming! I depend on your integrity and Christ centered reporting. Thank you for your diligence and witness.

    The Christian Victory Channel has covered this extremely well on the days following this. They show live video clips of the true story that went on, and more. It was amazing to see the set-up against Pres. Trump and his supporters. I had a hunch that this was so, the day I watched it happening. The ones who set this up did a very rushed and poor job. It was easy to see through. Bless your heart, dear Jeannette. May God encourage your heart and lift you to see what He sees. He is going to rectify all of this. He has had to let evil ripen to the full before HE would move on it. Kind of like the saying, give the enemy enough rope and time and he will hang himself. Shalom Blessings…

I will offer my hopeful thoughts and prayers: 1Corinthians 13 describes love as thinking best and hoping the best among other things, i will focus in those two, echoed again but the verse that says: these three remain: faith, hope, and love, and the greatest of these is love!” Again love THINKS the BEST, HOPES the BEST. I have heard the anti Biden anti Kamala talk, Biden ties to CCP, Kamala’s support of defunding police, yet i am instructed in the bible to
THINK the BEST, HOPE the BEST, this is Love, the greatest commandment, we see reality we see the record but we are supposed to still THINK and HOPE the best, not agree with the worst! Hebrews says Faith sees what is NOT as if it already IS and therby brings it to pass as faith is the SUBSTANCE of things HOPED for. These three REMAIN: Faith, hope and Love and the greatest of these is love, most of us will never know Joe Biden Or Kamala personally, if we did how would we treat them? Doit in their face like some of us spit on them in secret or on social media? Spew curses and rants at them? Or would we love them fir the glory of God? Would we pray for them and share the gospel with them? we wont have an opportunity to love them in person but God is judging us based on how we obey His word still, by loving them from afar, praying for them, hoping, praying, believing they do right by America. I have recently seen pics of Joe & Jill Biden outside of church, Let’s pray God surprises all of us and really does a work in him, let’s believe for it, hope for it, pray for it, and talk about it with our friends and family instead of bash him, when we do that we are obeying the gospel as i see it, to live him from afar, and God can work with that! Did you ever know anyone in person who you just didnt like and it was mutual? And then God convicts and you begin to obey the word and try to love and respect that person and they in turn sense it and respond favorably, this is how it works. If we keep hating on him spewing about him on social media and to friends we are playing into the hands of the devil, and the devil can cause Biden to curse us and our nation because we have held the door open to the devil, so let’s try it God’s way, not for a week or a month but consistently, and even if we cant have faith have hope, even if we cant think of anything nice to say just pray for him. Trust me this is the way to to go with it, The weapons of our warfare are not carnal they are faith,hope, love, prayer, the word, the blood of Jesus. Cursing anyone even secretly in our own heart is like beating our own as we are the ones who will ultimately suffer as it is unbiblical and will not be blessed by God nor will it bless or change Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or anyone in their administration, but prayer and obedience will they are warfare the spiritual forces in high places that have an open door to control our political leaders for evil against us due to our own disobedience and disregard of God’s law and ways. Father teach the church YOUR ways, we are not of the world we are of you, and need to do it your way, the only people Jesus judged were the phairsees the religious finger pointers he had compassion on the rest crying out for their forgiveness saying they did not know what they were doing may we do the same and may our obedience to bless the new President, VP and Administration be the substance you are able to use to convict them and guide them, your word says you turn the hearts of kings. You captured the attention and heart of Nebuchadnezzar through the obedience of three youth. Thousands of your people doing it your way can certainly have the same effect. May it be so, thank you

It grieves me to say this, but I think the President’s pride took over in this situation. Yes, the election was stolen, but the Senators were ready to defend him. His words incited violence to attack the Capitol Building. I believe God’s Hand of Favor and protective covering was removed by his pride and arrogance. Praying for a repentant heart for our President and restoration.

    I do believe pride was an issue here, His mouth as well. we don’t get God’s result doing things our way, although President Trump advocated for God, his mouth sadly often did not back up the faith he professed when it came to his enemies.yes he wanted to expose corruption or their lack of skill or wisdom but we who profess God need to admonish people tactfully. I Was not raised as a biblical christian and had a pride issue that Lord helped me get under control, i saw that the results were not Biblical because i was not following the biblical principals. We reap what we sow, and the outcome is the judgment which helps reform us. He has continued to blame everyone and i understand his anger at the injustice as he is angry for our sakes as well, but he needs to understand that ultimately the Lord allowed his enemies to triumph over him and us, and he needs to ask God why. I have been there. Although sometimes it’s persecution, more often it’s due to disobedience. Father humble President Trump and help him to truly see the error of his ways and to repent. We love him and you love him but your law is love and respect even toward our enemies, if we don’t obey they get the foothold and overcome us instead of us being the overcomer. We only overcome doing things your way. We know in the end we are more than conquerors and win the war but may lose some battles along the way to teach us to do it your way.

    The President DID NOT incite violence!! If you are going to make such a pronouncement, you MUST back it up with proof! President Trump specifically told them to not be violent, yes specifically. He did tell them to march to the Capitol, but that’s hardly inciting violence. I heard no arrogance whatsoever, nor quite frankly, do I believe the Senators were ready to defend him.

    Please get your facts straight before making such comments. “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6

      You replied to the wrong post never did i say he incited violence. I have been his supporter and i attended the Jan 6th rally hoping for a celebration not what took place but i do not blame the President for it, people are responsible for their own actiins and most of the lawless were likely antifa and blm and other left wing marxist groups intending to ruin the protest and once again make Trump and his supporters look bad.

I am believing God will restore President Trump as the duly elected President, that he will have a “Nebuchadnezzar Moment”, humble himself before the Lord and be restored by the people. When he repents of his pride and acknowledges that only the Lord puts in kings and princes, then God will restore him. I don’t know how, but I just believe God hears the urgent, righteous prayers of His children!

I am feeling exactly the same way with God’s prophetic Word & promises spinning in my head. There has been a heavy grief in my heart since Wednesday. In one moment I feel like I must prepare for the persecution of tribulation or for the Lord to snatch his bride out of this earth. And in another moment I think God will make a way when there seems to be no way to reveal His sovereign power and strength to the people. No matter what happens, I must keep my eyes on the Lord and trust in His perfect plan. In the meantime, we must share Christ and be his Light to others boldly. There is not much time left. By the way, I was there on Wednesday.

I’ve given up hope for our President, Donald Trump, to be restored to his rightful position in the White House on January 20.

Our nation’s leadership has been hijacked by a ruthless band of pirates; I can say no better about this motley crew.

I absolutely REFUSE to acknowledge anyone other than Donald Trump or Mike Pence as this nation’s rightful leader and President. This election was stolen from him through deceit and chicanery: the Devil’s tools.

So be it! I was hoping God would answer our prayers. He did. He said “No.” Yes, the prophesies of the book of Revelation must come to pass, and this is the path we’re on.

The best we Christians can do, as I see it, is to stand strong together, to comfort each other in times of grief, to heal each other in times of suffering, to feed each other in times of hunger, and know in our faith, no matter what happens, ultimately we will be with Our Lord.

Let us band together and find true peace in the midst of this storm.

    I’m sorry you feel that it’s over. God is never done with a country who has been praying and repenting. He said he would heal our land if Christians would humble themselves and pray. He is able to do more than we ask or think. It’s hard to stay in belief when you see the enemy getting his way. But when the Pharoah of Egypt cornered the Isrealites, the people complained and put Moses down for bringing them out just to be slaughtered in the desert. But God did the impossible. I hope you will read more of the stories of God rescuing his people when they prayed, repented and saw miracles occur. It may not happen the way we think it should, but it will happen. That is called trusting God and not leaning on your own understanding. Even if he doesn’t rescue our nation jsut yet, we know his ways are above ours and will have better results than we can know. Keep the faith my brother in Christ. God is able, not us.

He helps me to remember what He says in the Bible and requires me to stop allowing the enemy to upset me. I know that our God can see everything that goes on and it helps to know that there is a bigger picture we can’t see. No matter what that picture is, we are in His hands to accomplish His desires as we listen to His voice and not to the fake news, thus keeping our sanity.

Thank you, Dave. I think it is extremely important that christians stop saying: “God is still the God of turnarounds, so hang on. President Trump will still be elected.”
That option is gone!
If there hadn’t been so much pressure from supposed prophets, and Trump himself,
insisting such an outcome must happen, perhaps it would have happened,
and perhaps there wouldn’t have been an angry mob situation manipulated by the enemy.
God resists the proud.
Trump had right policies, but he, regardless of good intentions, ended up polarizing this nation too much.
We can’t even talk about issues anymore, because it’s all been about personalities, and insults.
Thank you for listening to this.

    Actually, Lynn, it wasn’t Trump who polarized this nation. You can thank the radical left for that. They spread the poison, using Trump as an excuse, and human ignorance did the rest.

    Of course you will never hear about the great things he did for this country and its people, will you? You will never hear that Donald Trump is the greatest and most pro-American president since Ronald Reagan, will you? Gee. . .wonder why.

I believe that we are in training camp! God is building our faith muscles. Humiliation and defeat seem to be our theme song, BUT GOD. Time after time we have seen seemingly unanswered prayers but we haven’t given up. As we continue to pray and believe that God is working…that He’s building his kingdom in spite of what we see, we will see that He is preparing us for a deeper walk of faith. He must know what we will need to carry us through to victory!

I’m believing for a miracle…it’s not January 20th yet. If I don’t see it, He’s still on the throne.

Pastor Walter Hamer
January 9, 2021

I really believe that we are getting the government that we deserve and that God is beginning his judgment upon our nation. Until we turn to obedience of God’s word, we will continue in our decline. The problem begins with the Christian community that lives pretty much at the level of the pagan people in our nation. Divorce, fornication (especially among young adults), lack of Bible studying, worship that glorifies the musicians and not the Lord are just some of the pagan practices that the church is doing like the world around us. We do not really care about the abortion issue so we just pay it lip service and fail to support with our finances the work in pregnancy clinics and those who engage the pro-abortion adherents. So let us begin by praying for the revival and renewal of the church before we engage the culture around us.

Dave, I really believe the Lord is dealing with the church. There are so many lies and we believe most of them. We have no discernment and there is a lot of false teaching out there, plus very little Bible knowledge. Spiritual leaders need accountability and we are putting too much faith in politics and people. Our confidence is in the Lord. People feel hurt and defeated because their eyes are in the wrong direction.

weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning…It felt like I just got rejuvenated…I don’t pretend to know that I have all the answers but I do believe God has a plan and so I came into agreement at that very moment with HIS plan and purpose for this nation…God Bless America

    Word of encouragement; Psalm 125:3
    The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous;
    for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil. No Biden will not be able to steal the crown.

    The Lord God Almighty would not allow USA, a land given in covenant relationship with Him to be used by the unrighteous when He rises a righteous servant President Trump to bring about the fulfilment of scripture Mal 4:5-6. “He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the children to the fathers:”

    “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil: 1:6

    I have confident that God having began a good work in President Trump will enable him to complete his assignment.

I, too, have gone through a gamut of emotions re: Jan 6th. I was so excited about the prospect of a million people descending upon DC in prayer and Godly power hoping it would send a message to our “leaders” that we are not the sleeping giant any longer. That we are fed up with the godlessness promoted by so many in our government. Most of the day went well. Singing, chanting, unity, excitement, one voice. Then the horror started and I immediately smelled a rat. Yes, we are angry (righteously), frustrated, tired of not being heard, fed up with being mocked but violent? No!!!! That is not, nor has it ever been, our MO. When reports began emerging that Antifa was involved I was “I knew It!!!!!!!!!!!! But would the main line media fairly report that – No of course not. Now it’s all the President’s fault. His words caused this to happen. Hardly. This was all arranged beforehand to bring shame on what we were all about. The only consolation I have is that God is indeed still on His throne. He still loves America in spite of our sins. He still has a plan for our nation and He will carry it out. From what I hear from many of the prophets I have come to trust this election is still not over and we will see Donald resume his presidency. We just don’t know when yet or even how. I believe Our Father is doing things in such a way that no man, woman, organization, judicial group, legislature etc can take credit – only God. How exactly this will play out only God knows not me. I’m just continuing to pray and declare the words He has spoken. Thank you for all you do and for sharing with us. It was very encouraging.

God bless you and thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I repeat my 2 postings (first on Dec. 23 and second yesterday, Jan.8) which continue to reflect my prayers, and position as I peacefully await God’s Perfect Timing:

President Trump: I thank God for God and for you. It is clear that you have a heart for God, and for things of Him, and that He has called you for such a time as this. So, besides thanking you for all you’ve accomplished during your 1st term, I want you to know that my prayers to our Heavenly Father God, said in Jesus’ Name, have included what you further plan to do, with the Blessed Holy Spirit’s guidance, during your 2nd term in bringing our Nation back to Him. I’ve been praying daily for you, your wife, and family, and will continue. ~ Blessings, Ann

In her daily devotional, “Each New Day,” the late Corrie ten Boom titled her message for January 8 “Electing Him” and opened with “God is voting for us all the time. The devil is voting against us all the time. The way we vote carries the election.” Adapting that part of her message to today, I say “To God Be The Glory! Wait and see His Hand in this election.”

Brother Dave, I have been involved with IFA since the 80s. Normally I steer away from the prosperity folks, but they have undertaken to broadcast the news since the election. Go victory.com has Muse at noon and at 5 Monday through Friday called America stands. Also, there is a program called Flashpoint which has as guests men who are gifted in Prophecy. Also there is a man who says he is an apostle, Dutch sheets, who has a webcast, Take Fifteen for Him. He has encouraging words for us. Reliable sources send him dreams which he then reads and interprets for his audience.

I have found these different angles on our times to be very encouraging. And you are right. Michele Bachmann made mention a while back that we need to stand still and watch what God will do. Everything is pointing in that direction. We must remain faithful and keep interceding.
Thank you so much for your leadership through this very turbulent time.

Sheryl Dawson
January 9, 2021

Thanks to Dave, other eyewitnesses from IFA and to those who shared below how they felt. I went through many of the same struggles and mourning with the news of the day. I decided to wait to hear more information before drawing any conclusions as we all know the media is not very reliable and manage to twist things to their agenda. I wondered first of all why the Capitol police did not accept Fed troop support. This was a big red flag to me and I think the reports of eye witnesses that the breech was permitted by the police initially suggest that there was a plan by someone in the Capitol to create a disturbance that would disrupt the proceedings, be condemned by all and discredit Trump and his followers. Well, that is exactly what happened and whomever was responsible got what they wanted — certification with fewer objections than expected and an uproar against Trump. When one wants to hide what they are doing, simply discredit those who may expose you; essentially this is the modus operandi for the left. I too believe we should continue to contend in the spirit for God’s will to be done, for justice on earth as it is in heaven, and for revival in America and around the world. When the going gets tough, as Christians we rely on the strength of the Lord in prayer, praise, and speaking truth. The first night I wept and asked the Lord to help me understand what had happened and why. I do not have all the answers yet, but in the habit of getting the IFA email when it is first sent out, which is the middle of the night for me as I am on MT time, I was immediately encouraged by the Friday articles and later the Friday prayer call when Dave shared about the 4 Capitol quadrants and the prayer group’s quadrant at peace in the Lord’s presence! I am grateful for the Kingdom work you and IFA are doing!

God will do what brings him glory. Jer 18:7 “If at any time, I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, 8 and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.” Lord, I pray you will bring us to repentance, beginning with each one as individuals. We desperately need revival, beginning in our churches, and I pray that you will send it. Have mercy, Lord.

I just heard a prophet, Henry Gruver on Sid Roth, explain the secret to God’s power is that we come together in unity, believing God. What if every born again church in America on Sunday would agree together as one in Christ. God is not finished with this election and His will shall be done. We are not just individuals trying to figure out what is happening, we are connected to the head, Christ. Let’s remember that Jesus came to destroy the work of the devil and His body must work in unity to fulfill what He prayed on His way to the cross. In John 17:23-24 Jesus asks the Father that we be brought to complete unity for 2 reasons: First, to let the world know that the Father sent His Son because of how much he loves us and second, so that we can see His glory which we all believe is coming. God is answering this prayer now if we will believe.
Unity of believers in Christ Jesus, trusting the Father, loving people and binding the devil’s strongholds. His will be done!

We as believers walk not by what we see or feel but by our faith in God. We have many promises from God one that is my favorite is “He will never leave or forsake us”. I choose to continue in intercession for our country that the Lords will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I have asked the Lord each morning to search my heart, keep me moldable by the master potter, and cleanse me from all unrightness. Renew me each morning and help me to keep my eyes on Him.

You lift Your Countenance upon Gary through Jesus Your Salvation and give this dearly beloved Your Peace, Your Shalom that he would have nothing missing and nothing broken in his life and nothing missing nothing broken within his very being through Christ The Lord. In Jesus’ Name let Your Spirit of love of power and of a sound mind rest weightily upon him. Amen which is to say So Be It for Jesus has paid in full for his complete freedom with His own Holy Royal Blood.

Dave, thank you for your thoughts. We can all be assured that none of this has caught Almighty God off guard. He is fully aware of this, as well as, all actions being taken throughout the world. He is sovereign and will remain so. He IS. We are to be know as His by our love one for another. We also are called to be holy as He is holy. We are to have a reason for our faith for anyone who asks. My word for 2021, provided by Holy Spirit mid-December, is Surrender. I believe it is surrendering to the Sovereign will of God. Each of us have been given spiritual gifts we are to use in service of others for His glory. I pray we all recognize, work on, in and through our giftings for the glory of God. Jesus Christ ascended to the right hand of the Father, is interceding for us, and is preparing a place for us and will return to call us home. We will, whether dead or alive, meet our Lord Jesus in the air and will forever be with Him. Let’s all be encouraged, remember our end and pray for all others who do not yet share our hope. Grace and peace to you all and your loved ones.

Father, you love Gary deeply. He is so precious to you that you would send Jesus to live a perfect life on his behalf, die to forgive his sins, and rise to give him new life. Indeed, you have done this for everyone to bring them into close relationship with you if they choose – we are so grateful. Lord, please give Gary whatever he needs that you know is best. May he experience your incredible love for him today. Thank you for how you are working in his life in wonderful ways. Amen.

I agree with number one…we cannot turn from God and expect a Godly outcome. This nation is so far removed from the heart of it’s founders…it is unrecognizable. Nations rise and fall. In the eternal scheme of things, it’s not as important as we think. By our fallen natures we are so self centered and ego centric. We are a very small moment in time and we shall pass. Still God rules, placing those in authority that he leads like a river, in whichever way serves His eternal purpose.

I will continue to pray & intercede according to Isaiah 9:6-7 and believe that the zeal of the Lord will accomplish an increase of His government. I pray that the Body of Christ will model a repentant lifestyle during these days and repent for the shedding of innocent blood, sexual immorality and not seeking FIRST God’s kingdom & righteousness.

We stand in faith that God is about to execute His vengeance on the enemy! Thank you Father for continuing to reveal to us the depth and height of satan’s demonic plans to destroy both American and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us especially hold up not only President Trump but Vice-President Pence. I sensed in my spirit that his (Pence) family was being physically threatened the other day which was confirmed when his daughter tweeted a congratulations to Biden & Harris during the middle of the certification. All will come to the light if we do not despair and allow God to be God who is our avenger against the adversary! In Jesus Name. Amen.

On Thursday night I was unable to sleep, and unsettled and afraid for what seems to be coming for God’s people. The Scripture that the Lord brought to my mind expressed exactly how my heart was feeling: “I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart be courageous. Wait for the Lord.”
I cannot begin to tell you how much I was comforted as I read Psalm 27.
Hang on, saints! Hold fast to your faith! God is not through.

We were at the Whitehouse and marched to The Capitol on January 6. It was freezing cold, we were disappointed inTrump‘s speech. But being together with so many God loving, American loving patriots was a wonderful experience. We got caught up in pressing forward toward the Capitol and realize now that agitators were working to cause chaos. But we simply sang, prayed, waved our flags, and joined others chants of “USA” and “Stop the steal”. It was a day of unity with wonderful people of every color who shared a common bond of love for God, family, liberty, and honest and fair elections. We were shocked when we arrived back at our hotel to the scorn of friends, family, the media and most of the country. They were saying and believing things about us that were completely untrue. On January 7th we began the day with heavy hearts. On one last walk around the spiritually oppressed but architecturally beautiful Washington DC, we felt physically ill with shock and disheartened sadness. It was the kind of feeling you have leaving a funeral of someone who has died too early. We prayed, “Oh Jesus, thank you for our families. Thank you for all the blessings we have lived with. Thank you for our homes and the opportunity to travel to Washington DC, but mostly thank You Jesus for You, that we can turn to You, that You are our God.” We finished praying and continued walking another block. We began to pass a Vietnamese woman who turned to us and put her hand on my arm and said “Don’t worry. Don’t be afraid. God is in control. Everything is going to be ok.” She had escaped tyranny only to have it now knocking on the doorstep of this country. This Angel, wearing an old pink sweater, was sent by the Holy Spirit to comfort us. She gave us homemade laminated bookmarks that with scripture “My peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Even now as I write this I have tears. God is so good. This is what I am hanging onto today.

    There were probably a million praying, loving patriots in Washington to support the contribution & fair elections. That 1000 or so got caught up in a mob mentality happens. Sadly there was loss if life but God has those blessed angels. The mainstream media on purpose misconstrued the whole Thing to make it look like what we witnessed all summer.

Complete agreement! And thank you for your observations and analysis of what went on there. There are very few I trust to give a good analysis of the turmoil in our country! IFA, Heritage Action, and Judicial Watch are my go-to sources.

Yes, we are disappointed in the way things turned out, and even rightfully mourning it. However, I was just reminded that I really was not happy when I was grounded or spanked as a child when I did something wrong. And as parents, it really did hurt us as much as it did them when we had to discipline our children! However, we did it so they would grow past being spoiled brats and become strong, competent, God-fearing adults–right? Well, we have become very spoiled here. I pray that our heavenly Papa is merciful as He rightfully allows the consequences of our self-centered, immoral behavior to unfold — and that as a people we quickly wake up, repent, and clean up the mess we have brought on ourselves!

I am convinced God wants to and will heal our nation. I am a nurse and know healing requires the proper conditions. Although Wednesday’s events were painful for all of us, in my heart I believe that day started something spiritually despite what we saw with our eyes. I actually felt a relief that afternoon. It confused me at first… why I would feel a relief considering what happened. Somehow I believe God “lanced” an infection deep within our nation. I believe we will see a lot of ugliness draining in the coming days… weeks… months… but after that I believe healing will begin. I trust God has heard our prayers all these months… His answer is coming in a way we haven’t perceived, just as His cross wasn’t the answer His disciples were expecting. And in the same way the results will be more glorious than we expect! I for one will never stop praying for His will to be done and His kingdom to come! Our church has been praying consistently and we plan to continue! I am convinced God will do something wonderful that will bring hearts and souls to His love!

If God did not hold back His judgment on Israel and Judah when they turned from His ways why should we expect anything less? His love is pure and I believe His desire is for our repentance and restoration
Keep up the good work and thank you.

Dr. Steven G. Coy, D.Min.
January 9, 2021

Some of my thoughts from Scripture:
The book of I Samuel chapter 12 describes how God wanted Israel to recognize
the reality that He was their King. But the people were persistent and impassioned
in wanting a king like other nations, so God relented and gave them what they
wanted… It was not God’s perfect will that Israel have a king in the flesh,
rather that they acknowledged the LORD GOD was their King.

Also, we know that God “desires ALL to be saved and come to the
knowledge of truth” through Jesus Christ. But, not all shall be saved…

In other words, not everything that happens in the world is God’s perfect will.
But, He is sovereign. I believe that President Trump was and will continue to
be an awesome Ambassador for Jesus Christ, and for Israel. God loves him, and
I suspect is He is very pleased with Donald Trump’s role as POTUS. He is an
imperfect man and leader, but God has always used imperfect vessels-aren’t we all!
Blessings, my brother and fellow servant of God and Christ Jesus!

I will keep this short. Last night I experienced such tremendous anguish, fear and oppression that I was unable to sleep for most of the night. I have never experienced anything like this before and I am 65 years old. I went to various areas of my home to try and pray. It wasn’t very successful. The turmoil and confusion increased greatly. I actually thought I was going crazy and might need to go to the hospital. But underneath the tremendous turmoil was this still small presence of reassurance God is still there. Towards the early morning I continued, in the best way I could… to cry out to God. “Help me Lord – help me please. Help our nation Lord – help us please. Have mercy on us”. It was the most desperate and agonizing period of hours I can ever remember. I’m not trying to be dramatic. I’m just sharing what I felt and experienced. It wasn’t pleasant at all.
But following the desperate appeal to God th anguish and terror started to lift. The word “breakthrough” started to appear in my mind and heart. I kept hearing it throughout the day. I sensed that it wasn’t just for me but for our nation – perhaps for the people of God.
I don’t know if this helps anyone but I hope it does. When we are in our most desperate state, cry out to God for help and mercy. He will answer – not just individually but for our nation. Cry out and keep crying out to Him.

    Thank you for sticking with Jesus in that time of intercession through the Holy Spirit. You may never know what came from that time. I have been through it several times in pas few months. Had a bit of it today, in fact; suspect I will be through it again. You are called to stand in the gap in prayer. It helps me to literally push from my gut the deep moan or groan of the Spirit. I have had days of just continued weeping. Keep praying keep pushing keep seeking keep sighing keep moaning and groaning the Jesus through Holy Spirit of God is wanting to express Himself through our prayers…He is working with us to pray the perfect will of God into the earth. To what you were praying we say Amen and as you have said saints, ” Cry out and keep crying out to Him” Amen

I appreciate those who went to Washington and can give me an accurate idea of what happened there. My sadness over the events and the narrative that continues promoting suspicion and threats against all Trump supporters made it hard to avoid angry thoughts and frustration. The truth that keeps me anchored is the faithfulness of God, and all the ways He has revealed that faithfulness to my husband, myself and our family over the years. I have seen Him do wonders to transform a situation that appears hopeless, but I don’t know what He will do in this instance. I know He is our Advocate and our Defender against all attacks of the enemy and I am confident that He is with us. I want able in Him and He in me so that I can do what He and only He can enable me to do. I don’t want to bear false witness in any situation, because those who hated Jesus bore false witness against Him in order to crucify Him. I would caution anyone who is tempted to speak beyond what is verifiable by multiple trusted sources, and to keep from speaking careless words. “I tell you, on the day of judgement, people will give an account for every careless word they speak.” Matthew 12:36 Also, “The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, then peace-loving,considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17 The battle belongs to the LORD, and He hears our cries for deliverance.
My comments are not directed to any individual or group. If the words don’t resonate with you as you are reading this, please just pray for me that I will keep my focus on Jesus in the midst of the storm.
Thank you again, all who are taking the time to seek the LORD and serve Him faithfully.

Dear Father God maker of heaven and earth and all that is in it. You sit sovereign on the throne overseeing heaven and earth day and night. Thanks be to Jesus who intercedes on our behalf – His church – and He who reigns over the kings of the earth. Your will be done your Kingdom come on earth as it already is in heaven. The darkest part of the night comes just before dawn. We are in this period where wickedness seems to be winning out. But God our hope is in you – The Alpha and Omega. You are The beginning and The end. Our words we speak we place under your Word as our Forefathers did. May the one who fulfilled the Law bring order and clarity to this nation who is one nation under God. Bring out the wicked and as you say in your Word let the wicked slay the wicked but in the Land of the Living may we walk humbly in step with your Holy Spirit. Acting justly loving mercy and growing in favor with God and man – In Jesus’ name I pray – Amen

I feel lately like Abraham who was told to take Isaac for a sacrifice….He kept walking in faith and God provided the sacrificial lamb….If we are God’s , He has not left us,but will sustain us to stand firmly and lovingly for Him….We may be called to yield more sacrifice than
in the past….Yes, we will pray without ceasing, but with more resolve than to see just one man elected….to ask God to form His teams and guide and protect them. There are now many fronts that need attention….
salvations, deliverances, etc…The power of God working through us will be astounding and life changing…
Recharging…God grow us up for the challenges!
Washington is not God’s answer…We are….

God is on His throne. Trump has done what he could lawfully and Constitutionally, working through the courts, the House of Representatives and State governments. My hope is in God’s character to still bring righteousness and justice to the situation, for these are the foundations of His throne. My hope is in God’s promises and examples in His word, to undo the works of darkness and those who commit the six abominations which He hates. My hope is in God honoring Pres. Trump, for Pres. Trump has honored Him, openly, see I Samuel 2:30. My hope is in God’s continued blessing on President Trump for he has blessed Israel and been her friend and ally. Lastly, with the anointing of the Holy Spirit on this verse this morning, I read Psalm 27:13 “I would have despaired unless I believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
I believe we are at the Red Sea. As the Body of Christ in the U. S., we have never seen a move of God or waited on Him for much. Can we wait now, with belief and trust, or will we fold our hands and say God does not love us or Trump and we are under judgment? Yes we need correction as His children, but I hope in His mercy., another of His characteristics. “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!” I AM WAITING EXPECTANTLY FOR GOD TO SHOW UP FOR HIS CHARACTER AND HIS NAME’S SAKE!

No matter what happens We still have kingdom work that needs to be done. My scripture for the year is “if you are willing and obedient you will eat the fat of the land.”Is. 1:19 So regardless of what happens this word stands true. Be willing and be obedient of what He asks of us.

Thank you for acknowledging mourning. I have felt a strong sense off mourning since Wednesday. Many, many words are poutwd out on those of us who were not able to be at the Capital that day.
I’ve questioned my mourning and have decided to ride it out while keeping the main focus on God’s word. I ask for wisdom and ears to hear and learn what He wants me to know
I am grateful andd blessed houy by those faithful prophets who put this their first and foremost priority. To give days and nights to the faith, study, discernment and intense focus on God is an exemplary gift given them. I trust those I have chosen to focus my heart toward. They are those proven, and some include time tested. I do ask.
At the end of the day, I’ve come to know they are saying the same thing with different God given words and expression. Therefore, my being is strenghtened. I wait on the Lord to do ALL His word tells us. Our God does not contridict Himself nor does He play mind games.
I might still grieve some. I also am staying the course God puts before me. I believe in our undeniable Creator, our Abba Father, the One anf Only God who was and is and always will be on thr throne. There is nothing fearful or out of control in His world. This is where believers live. We are on earth temporarily but we are permanently in God. I have all I need to
continue to the the day I praise Him in a perfect world.
Now I go back to caring for my children and granddaughters with an open spirit as to what else I am called to do.

I am standing on 2Chron2020 and 2 Chron 2021… 2020 and 2021 from 2 Chronicles. 🙂 I love God’s little hidden treasures (and the whole of 2 Chron 20!!

I am in total agreement God is still on the throne! His ways are never our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts . We have to ban together and totally trust Him and wait for Him to act . I do not believe it is over yet and NO MATTER what happens there will be revival and awakening as we continue to pray and stand in faith .
Our God is a just God and always uses a remnant thru history . I do believe we are going to see His Glory like never before amid gross darkness as Is. 60 states. I also do not believe our God would ever go out with His tail between his legs . I am convinced that we will yet see the greatest display of His glory and power ever seen in these end days !

Thank you Dave. Spot on. May I briefly share a vision I saw on January 6th before the Congress convened?
I saw a VERY large eagle soaring above Washington DC. I knew it was Washington because it landed at the Capitol. This was while I was in prayer, crying out to the Lord for our nation. Between it’s wings were hundreds, maybe thousands of small black creatures, appearing like bats, but small. They were flying along with the eagle, not because of the eagle, but because of the forward momentum they could achieve as it flew. I could tell the small black creatures were not impeding the eagle, but rather taking advantage of its strength. The eagle swooped down and landed at the Capitol. I didn’t see it land, but knew that it had landed because I heard a voice say, ‘The eagle has landed.’ Immediately on landing, there was an explosion of white light, similar to when an atomic bomb explodes. The next thing I saw was a wave of light/energy eminating from the blast, going out from it. I don’t think the black creatures were there anymore, or at least they did not survive the blast. It was a wave of repentance. It hit me, and I started to weep more intensly. I then understood it was God, sending out a wave of repentance through the power of His Holy Spirit, as a grace, as a mercy for us, that we would trust in Him and not our government. He was not angry, just merciful, and redirecting us in His kindness. He later revealed to me that as Americans, and as Believers, we have wanted someone else to solve our problems, someone else to chop everything up for us and make it easy to swallow, like baby food. God is saying to us that it’s time to grow up, and that we must learn to feed ourselves… on His Word, on the Truth, and in our personal, corporate and civic responsibilities. Please share if you feel it is appropriate, meant as an encouragement to the Body of Christ at this difficult time.

    I love this vision! The Lord showed me the world from space. Sitting on top of America was a huge tree. You couldn’t see the roots wrap around the Earth, but you could see them coming out of the bottom. God said, “When I remove the evil from America I will rip out every root. It will leave holes all over the world, because the root of evil goes into every nation. These holes will need filled and only my remnant can fill in the holes with My love. Take them Jesus.”
    We have a job to do. Get your battle gear on!

Great article Dave!! When God, the people of this nation and the government all align under the voice of God; great things will happen. That is just beginning and the people awakening are evidence. God is indeed still in charge. President Trump is his instrument. He is not acting like a defeated man but he needs our prayers for his safety. The left is afraid of him & should be which is why they want to impeach him. He remains president and will be inaugurated on January 20th. Intercessors for America need to keep praying, watching, hoping and having faith. We will all see that God will not allow his “one nation under God” to fall!! Keep praying everyone & be patient. May God bless and heal all Americans; and see to the arrest of bad actors who have committed treason or sedition. May every knee bend to Jesus and thy will be done on earth as in heaven!!
Amen

I am reminded of Moses and the pharaoh of ancient Egypt God told Moses it was a done deal:his people would be set free. But, as history reveals, freedom was a long and painful time coming.
and then there was that Red Sea moment, without an apparent bridge. Faith in God had to set in. Then God revealed the land bridge over the sea. Freedom at last!
and withfreedom, new responsibilities.

I rarely ever say anything, but the Lord has in these last two days urged me to write to you. Since you have asked what we think, here is what I’ve got. Take or leave it, consider the source. I don’t claim to be right, just what I have.

At the beginning of last year (2020) as I watched the news about how China was locking down Wuhan due to the virus, the world seemed to be applauding the move. But I heard the Lord say it was the wrong thing to do (the lock down). Easter came around and “prophets” began saying the Lord was going to put an end to this disease at Easter. Again, not what the Lord gave me about it. Coming up to the election again prophets were saying Trump was going to win. The Lord told me no he wasn’t.

But just a few weeks after the election, the Lord spoke very clearly to me saying, “He, (that would be Biden) doesn’t belong in the white house.” The impression I got at the hearing of these words was as if a sour pickle was put in a creamy sweet cheese cake. That would be the comparison closest to the impression I got from the words. But realize my impressions don’t mean anything nor are they an interpretation of the word given to me. But does the word mean Trump will be president? No, just that Biden does not belong there. Nor does the word He gave me about Trump losing the election mean he would not be president, only that he would lose the election.

What I say next will rile some feathers. There has been especially in this last year an effort to push or lift Trump up. I think this is where the Christian community went wrong. It began to seem as if Trump was being placed in the minds of American conservatives and even Trump himself as being the Messiah, the hero of our nation, our savior. How many prophets told him he was destined for great things, that God has called him for this very hour, and to bring deliverance for His people? He was being lifted up too much and too high.

Look, I voted for him, both times and am not ashamed of my vote. I would do it again.
God will not share His throne with anyone else. If Christians are looking to anyone else to bring them deliverance, they are looking to the wrong one.

In Daniel chapter two, the rock that crushed all the worlds kingdoms (kingdoms of men) crushed ALL of them before it grew across the world. That includes the U.S. Every nation’s authority will be crushed as the dust is and blown away. The Lord’s reign on this earth will not be established until every nation is brought to nothing including ours.

The Revelation of John reveals all that will happen in the world before the return of Christ to reign. And it doesn’t look good for anyone (including Christians who will be persecuted and put to death). John saw all this. He knew the horror of what the world will pass through and even while understanding the devastation that will come, he still prays at the end … “Even so, come Lord Jesus.”

The kingdom of America is not the Kingdom of God though I believe many believers live as though it is. The kingdom of America and its so-called freedoms will be wiped away upon the arrival Christ and His reign starts.

Why did Trump lose? Perhaps to humble him and Christian who exalted him instead of Christ? Do Christians desire the kingdom of God or the kingdom of America? They aren’t the same and we can’t have both. We are supposed to be only passing through because our country is not yet arisen in this world. That will take place when Christ comes again. How important is this nation and how desperately will we cling to this one when clinging to it distracts and is unwittingly putting our efforts into delaying the one we should be waiting for? This nation must end before Christ returns. Yet we are trying to rescue it and keep it going

As for me; I say “Even so, Come Lord Jesus.”

This is all I can share now without turning this into a book. You decide, Am I right or wrong. You asked for our opinion this is some of mine.

    Amen Aaron. And, I think that many of us were not worshiping Trump, only hoping to benefit from his policies so we would be able to bring in the great harvest of souls that are surely going to come into the kingdom of God in the next few years, unimpeded. Now, it might be much more difficult, not impossible. Just harder.
    Appreciate your perspective, similar to mine. Blessings, and may we all be on our knees before we are on our feet for the forseeable future.

I totally agree. We have been so blessed to live in America that we became “fence riders” in our faith.
We have been the Lukewarm Church mentioned in Revelation. We have stood by while allowing prayer removed from our schools, and laws like abortion, to be enacted. There should not be separation of the church from the state, in the sense we just let things happen and do not get involved. Now is the time! We must put on the full armor of God. We must pray without ceasing, honor God with our actions, have faith He is good and will ultimately bring Victory for His Kingdom. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and not veer any other direction.

I agree with Dave Kubal, that the events we are experiencing in our nation at this appointed time have already been recorded in the books and archives of heaven before the foundation of the earth.

The church was birthed under similar evil/self deceived government and religious system in Israel under Rome. The stage was set for the greatest out-pouring of the Holy Spirit that the world had ever seen. It began with a short season of prayer, fasting and unity along with a willingness to yield, fully surrendered in body, soul and will to God’s direction only, as revealed by the Holy Spirit to His unified body.(Acts 1-2) Nobody could have expected what was about to transpire in Jerusalem and throughout the world.

Peters first message, from Joel 2:28-29, begins with, “And it shall be in the last days…” This is actually an updated interpretation by the Holy Spirit through Peter to address that current move of God, at that time.

Joel 2:28 actually begins with, “And it will come about after this…” After what? After the people of Israel, at that time in history, would be willing to repent with fasting, weeping and mourning for the sins of their nation for pursuing the world, the flesh, evil and selfish ambition rather than God with a whole heart, mind and will. The result was a promised reversal of the current situation and a complete turn around into national spiritual and economic prosperity. It is not about having more of what we don’t need already, it’s about having the fullness of the power of the Holy Spirit upon each and everyone of us that is willing to repent and call upon Jesus as our King and Lord for clear direction in how to move forward, following Him.

Jesus desperately wants to pour out on His church and body His supernatural power, wisdom, understanding and knowledge in a manner that is exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think. It is something you can’t predict or plan for, because it’s supernatural. It only happens by God, through His Holy Spirit in eternity now! Today! Jesus said, “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom You have sent(Jn 17:3).” Learning to know God and obey Him is the beginning, middle and end of relationship, service, ministry and results in His kingdom. Because He designed it, He empowers hand picked people to do it, and He sees every ordained project perfectly completed in His time by His will, and He is blessed and glorified by it.

We are now in the “Last of the last days”, with the birth of Israel as a nation in 1948. All of the nations are in place for the final out-pouring of the Holy Spirit in His supernatural power. I believe God is simply looking for His people, the church, to be willing to let Him complete His work in each and every one of us so that we can together, be fully surrendered to Jesus as our King, Lord and Savior, through His Spirit to be ready for this grand out-pouring and transformation of lives throughout the world.

What we are facing in our nation right now, what ever way it ends up moving, is going to give us opportunity to fulfill God’s heart and purpose for each one of us as we pursue the righteousness, peace and joy of His kingdom through His Spirit until He returns.

We must remain absolutely focused upon our most merciful God, and the things above! It “appears” hopeless and dark, all hell has come against our Nation and His people called by His Name. “Earthquaking events” have been known to take place in past history! Recall the tomb on the third day, Esther and her people when they fasted and prayed! “Behold I do a new thing!”( Isaiah 42:9) The incompetent, senile Joe Biden has prepared “his platform” for his inauguration as President, from a stolen election, to rule in tyranny! He has disregarded all TRUTHS that transforms people’s lives under the rule and authority of our faithful God! Our Lord sees and knows all, as HE muses from His throne above. Biden: “A good thing Trumps not attending the inauguration”.(quote) Perhaps, as with Haman, tables will suddenly turn, Jan 20th! A Divine Intervention to deliver our Nation, and President Trump given his rightful God fearing position, leading to a Great Awakening and Revival. . . So very much needed today! Pray! people, Pray! Perhaps our Sovereign God will grant us mercy to “shine His Light, once again as a city on a hill!” All the world Is watching and waiting!

It’s time for intercessors to arise! Many new to interceding for our country need guidance, modeling, encouragement, training. Please IFA, more prayer calls where we can pray together and learn HOW and WHAT to prsy. We need leadership &community. We need truthful info to know what is going on. So much censorship!
We truly love praying together—thanks for being there this week on the webcasts. It gave me courage and hope.

Hi Dave, Thank you for all you shared. When I heard of the violence at the capital, my first thought was a set-up to cover their wicked paths. They did nothing all summer long to address the violence through out our nation and now they want to do something about it “why” to cover themselves. If all the peaceful people are heard for the fraud to be investigated and congress agrees they are done. They plotted this violence by allowing antifa and others to bring violence that day. I believe that with all my heart. My heart was crying for our nation and the wrong actions of men and women who are supposed to be representing us “we the people” who voted them into office. I vote only for pro-life candidates and they failed us too. My hope is in the Lord that he will reveal all that is concealed and shout it at the roofs (Luke 12:2-3). I began to share my heart with the Lord and told him I hope they all go to HELL the anger for all the wrong they are doing to our nation. Yet I heard the Lord say “how will they know, if the do not hear” Romans 10:17, I asked the Lord to forgive me for wanting them to all go to hell and canceled those words out in the name of Jesus. I asked the Lord to help me to pray for their salvation that he would soften their hearts to the gospel news and by his loving kindness lead them to repentance (Romans 2:4). We are allowed to be angry, what is happening is wrong completely, anger tells us when we have been wronged, what we do with that anger is important; we need to give it to the Lord and ask him to have his way in each person for his way is always good. He is good all the time, his nature is love, his kingdom here on earth is righteousness, peace and joy (Romans 14:17). So I pray Lord have your way in our Senators, House of Representatives, Congress, U.S. Supreme Court Justices, President, Vice President, those newly elected coming into office, have your way, your good pleasure in each one, your way is higher than my way (Isaiah 55:9)and you know each heart and I ask that you release your ministering Angels (Hebrews 1:14) to minister to each one for their salvation, bring godly men and women into their lives to share the gospel news touch their lips (Jeremiah 1:9) and speak through them the truth of your mighty word the sword of the spirit and bring them to salvation, do a transforming work in each one’s heart as only you can do Jesus, for you take no pleasure that any should perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9). In Jesus’ Name Amen!

I believe what you’ve stated is true. We need to trust in the Lord because He does know all things and He is in control. Things might not have worked out as we planned; but we need to keep on praying and asking for mercy and forgiveness. We NEED TO BRING GOD BACK INTO OUR HEARTS AND OUR LIVES.S

There is an interesting scripture in 1 Kings 22 that lays out a scenario that we are seeing play out before our eyes. As you look at the scripture please don’t think I am disparaging any prophetic words or voices. The issue is that each of us only knows what God allows us to know and at this point in history it is important that we focus less on the plans of God and more on the purposes of God. It is much more important to be righteous than to be right and we have forgotten that in the church. It is evident by all the different messages and voices within the church that we have to admit that we don’t know God’s will right now with regard to circumstances, but I can tell you God’s will with regard to how you live. It is in the Bible. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control are what are important right now. Do we really think God needs our approval or our advice to accomplish His will? We in the church are confused, broken, upset, and yet we are still looking for our deliverance by the hands of man. Turn to the Lord. Set your eyes on what is unseen not what is seen. Live according to the word of God and don’t get caught up in the affairs of man. This is not our home. If God wants to defend it He will. We have prayed more for these elections and at this time than any other election in current history and yet we still feel like we need to make things happen by force. Do not try to take things into your own hands – the battle is the Lords and if He doesn’t fight it or win it then there is something bigger and better going on that we do not understand. Maybe God is getting rid of an Ahab.

Yesterday as I was driving home from downtown, a word came to me.

VINDICATE

Definition of vindicate

1a: to free from allegation or blame

(2): to provide justification or defense for : JUSTIFY
c: to protect from attack or encroachment : DEFEND

I believe President Trump will be vindicated, we just need to continue to pray and believe God is working, and His will will be accomplished.

Today I got the phrase “Call forth the truth”. Let’s call for the truth to be revealed.

I love this nation. Believing for God’s will to be accomplished.

God and Truth will not be defeated. We who believe Him must have courage to fly the banner of truth without compromise. His Holy Spirit will supply our need for courage and tenacity if we ask Him. We must also have the patience to wait for the final outcome. We must not give in to despair or prejudge the outcome because God is working as we continue to wait on Him in prayer and stand for the Truth.

Lord
Jesus, I pray for our nation. I get it that You have us under judgement. We ARE reaping what we, as a nation, have sown. I am grateful to be part of Your holy remnant to stand upon Your Word and take authority through intercessory prayer. I confess, that I need Holy spirit revelation. I am sure that I am not alone in this. Please, pour out Holy Spirit upon us, on our nation, and world. In Your Word, you promised that in the last days, that You would Pour out Holy Spirit upon all men. I sense that this such a critical time in our nation, that we desperately need Holy Spirit revival to take place. Let it be, according to Your Word. In Jesus’s mighty name we pray.

I ask that you, our Lord God, our Heavenly Father, would bind the spirit of fear and discouragement from your people and may that be replaced with Your faith, hope, joy, love, and Your Peace dear Lord. Where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty, as we have witnessed with Dave’s photo. May we press on in prayer for our Nation and for President Trump to be the one taking the oath of office on the 20th. I pray the Insurrection Act would be used by the President, for there was Foreign governments involved in the theft of our election. Make all crooked paths straight before our President and make this horribly crooked road straight before him as only You can do. I pray this in the blood of Jesus and by His name. Amen

I too have prayed for our President and our nation for for many years and have been very blessed with being a part of IFA. I have no prophetic Word regarding the outcome of our election but after as I sought God’s direction He gave me three words,Stand, Wait and Watch. I was to stand in faith, wait as those who wait upon the Lord shall be renewed in strength and watch for the Glory of the Lord shall be seen. My hope was liken to Habakkuk in Chapter 3:2, asking the Lord to show us His Glory as in the days of old. On January 6th I knew God would either show us mercy or show us judgement, but He is faithful and would lead as we walk through changing times. God is faithful, I have known only this side of Our God even in hurtful times, this is the gift of knowing a personnel God and this brings me comfort and peace. After prayer and thinking on January 6th events and listening to David Kubal’s video and prayer time for the third time I rest in this. The Holy Spirit brought me into Jesus prayer in the Garden John17:20-23…May they be brought into complete unity to let the world know that You sent me and have loved them even as You have loved me. Our response as God’s people should always be love, the kind of LOVE He is speaking of will require us to do as Jesus commands in Matt 10:38-39 being willing to lose ones life. This brought me to His heart, in 2 Cor.4:7-18. We must understand that to follow Christ will bring life and death, that the life of Jesus will be revealed in us. I don’t understand His ways, but I do trust them and I pray that the remnant will by Grace choose to love and respond in love being united by His power for His Glory. God has shown me that in the midst of this political war even my own family has been fractured and I trust He will give me Grace to love. For I do pursue in losing my life, I will gain my life in Christ and those I disagree with will only see the face of Jesus. He is preparing His Bride and how we respond will reveal who it is that reigns in our hearts. This is the prayer I hold for my President as he moves through this difficult time, having been placed in the crucible of suffering, His relationship with Christ will come to a new height, depth and intimacy and the HOPE of GLORY will be revealed through him.

I agree fully with your assessment. I have written a response to the Huckabee response when he questioned his followers would you say Biden be my president. I have my feeling human side, and than my focused side. God states in varied books respect your leaders, I am in control I appoint your leaders, give to caeser what is caters, and so on and so on.
So I am focused on God, and truly will be praying adamantly. I also will be watching closely and contact senators and Reps regarding policy and amendments.
I also am concerned with facebook and twitter, apple and google, all conspiring to stop the moderates, from their opinions. ( there are new social sites opening) the 24/7 national prayer group for the president has a facebook page, I notified them they need to get a website, I cannot be a part of facebook any longer. .. This is how Nazi Germany began if you read history… history repeats itself… I will pray for those with blinders, and for those being led by the evil ones, tentacles and lies. I will profess and praise God till my dying day, if this is the end times, in warp speed ( which by the way began with Christ’s resurrection). So be it., put on our armor of strength and stand tall for God. Cloister together, read the Bible be in small groups , support each other… isolation is destructive to God’s words. We are his disciples., share the truth be bold.

Well said. I agree. I feel we need to be active at the State level, cleaning up the voter rolls, the election procedures, learning and challenging what’s being taught in the schools, etc. We also need to be praying for and supporting the 26 Republican state Attorneys General who will be standing in the gap between us and the Biden Administration.

I don’t know the outcome of all this chaos and of all the evil and deception we are witnessing. Only God knows and we must trust in him. I believe Satan is on a rampage like never before. He knows his days are numbered and he is desperate to drag as many souls back to hell with him as possible. Today, as I was praying in Church, I felt like the Lord is specifically asking me (us)to pray for Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Karmala Harris etc. All the specific leaders that are doing great harm to our Country, the people, the innocents and themselves, our enemies. And I realized that I have been praying only for all the good people the ones who know the truth all ready. So that is my personal goal to pray for our enemies because only love and mercy can dispel the darkness we find ourselves in today. Let there be light! God Bless America!

Saturday 9 January 21
I awoke a bit late to am oh so hungry Old English Bulldog. After I appeased his hunger, I settled down to a cup of coffee and the usual prescribed meds. An urgency to write came over me. My tasks for today were many and writing was not a first priority but in obedience, I picked up my prayer journal and began to write. The words flowed easily as I penned each one.
“This is a day of NEW revival not a day of disdain or concern. It is my plan unfolding yet to be completed. Let not your eyes deceive you or your ears to cause you distress. Let HOPE arise! Hope in Me.
You are the agent I have chosen. Tell the Word to my people.
Let HOPE arise! Speak it and it shall be. A new day is dawning. My presence will be revealed. Rest in that Promise. Rest in Me!
Celebrate! My word to you is true. Let it be known to my people. I have chosen you. Do not hold back, for as it is spoken, it shall come to pass. Celebrate all that I Am. A new day is dawning.”
And to that I say, AMEN!
“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord… plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 12:11. NIV

My devotion for today from “All God’s Creatures”: Philippians 4:11-13. NLT
“…although I haven’t been delivered out of my troubles, I don’t have to adopt an attitude of doom and gloom…Even in the tough times, I can flash the world a “sunny” smile.
God, give me an outlook that finds contentment and peace in every situation, every day, rain or shine. Amen.” (Linda S. Clare)

Confirmation? I believe it to be so.
