    Deuteronomy 32 : 1 – 52

    The Song of Moses

    1 “Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak! Let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
    2 May my teaching trickle like rain, my speech distill like dew— like gentle rain on new grass, like showers on tender plants.
    3 For I will proclaim Adonai’s Name, ascribe greatness to our God!
    4 The Rock—blameless is His work. Indeed, all His ways are just. God of faithfulness without iniquity, righteous and upright is He.
    5 Did it corrupt Him? No! The blemish is His children’s— a generation crooked and twisted.
    6 Is this how you pay back Adonai, O foolish, unwise people? Isn’t He your Father who ransomed you? He made you and established you.
    7 “Remember the days of antiquity, understand the years across generations. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders and they will say to you.
    8 When Elyon gave nations their heritage, when He separated the sons of man, He set boundaries for the people by the number of Bnei-Yisrael.
    9 But Adonai’s portion is His people— Jacob is the share of His inheritance.
    10 He found him in the wilderness land, in the void of a howling waste. He surrounded him, cared for him, guarded him as the pupil of His eye.

    Hosea 14 : 2 – 10

    2 Return O Israel, to Adonai your God, for you have stumbled in your iniquity.
    3 Take words with you and return to Adonai. Say to Him: “Take away all iniquity, and accept what is good, so we may repay with offerings of our lips:
    4 ‘Assyria will not save us. We will not ride on horses, and we will never again say, “Our god,” to the work of our hands, for with You, orphans find mercy.’”
    5 “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, for My anger will turn away from him.
    6 I will be like dew for Israel. He will blossom like a lily, and thrust out his roots like Lebanon.
    7 His tender shoots will spread out. His beauty will be like an olive tree and his fragrance will be like Lebanon.
    8 Those dwelling in his shadow will return. They will grow grain and bud like a vine. His renown will be like the wine of Lebanon.
    9 Ephraim: “What more are idols to me? I have responded and observed Him. I will be like a luxuriant cypress tree. From me will be found Your fruit.”
    10 Who is wise? Let him discern these things. Who is intelligent? Let him know them. For the ways of Adonai are straight, and the just walk in them, but the wicked stumble in them.

    Joel 2 : 15 – 27

    Blow the Shofar

    15 Blow the shofar in Zion! Sanctify a fast; proclaim an assembly.
    16 Gather the people; sanctify the congregation; assemble the elders; gather the children, even those nursing at breasts. Let the bridegroom come out from his bedroom and the bride from her chamber.
    17 Between the porch and the altar let the kohanim, ministers of Adonai, weep, and let them say: “Have pity, Adonai, on Your people. Don’t make Your heritage a scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should the peoples say, ‘Where is their God?’”
    18 Adonai will be zealous for His land, and have compassion on His people.
    19 Adonai will answer and say to His people: “Behold, I will send you the grain, the new wine, and the fresh oil, and you will be satisfied with it. I will no longer make you a mockery among the nations.
    20 “But I will remove the northern invader far from you—yes, I will banish him to a dry and desolate land— his vanguard into the Eastern Sea and his rearguard into the Western Sea. His odor will go up— Yes, his stench will rise.” For He has done great things!

    Rain and Restoration

    21 Do not fear, O land. Be glad! Rejoice! For Adonai has done great things.
    22 Do not be afraid, beasts of the field, for the desert pastures have sprouted, for the tree bears its fruit. Fig tree and vine yield their strength.
    23 So be glad, children of Zion, and rejoice in Adonai, your God. For He gives you the early rain for prosperity, Yes, He will bring down rain for you, the early and latter rain as before.
    24 The threshing floors will be full of grain and the vats will overflow with new wine and fresh oil.
    25 “I shall restore to you the years that the locust, the swarming locust, the canker-worm and the caterpillar have eaten— My great army that I sent among you.”
    26 “You will surely eat and be satisfied, and praise the Name of Adonai your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. Never again will My people be shamed
    27 You will know that I am within Israel. Yes, I am Adonai your God —there is no other— Never again will My people be shamed.”

    Micah 7 : 18 – 20

    He Will Again Have Compassion

    18 Who is a God like You pardoning iniquity, overlooking transgression, for the remnant of His heritage? He will not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy.
    19 He will again have compassion on us. He will subdue our iniquities, and You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
    20 You will extend truth to Jacob, mercy to Abraham, that You swore to our ancestors from the days of old.

    John 21 : 1 - 25

    Fish for Breakfast with the Risen One

    1 After these things, Yeshua revealed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. Now here is how He appeared.
    2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in the Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two of the other disciples were together.
    3 Simon Peter said to them, “I’m going fishing.” “We’re coming with you too,” they said. They went out and got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing.
    4 At dawn, Yeshua stood on the beach; but the disciples didn’t know that it was Yeshua.
    5 So Yeshua said to them, “Boys, you don’t happen to have any fish, do you?” “No,” they answered Him.
    6 He said to them, “Throw the net off the right side of the boat, and you’ll find some.” So they threw the net, and they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.
    7 Therefore the disciple whom Yeshua loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tied his outer garment around himself—for he was stripped down for work—and threw himself into the sea.
    8 But the other disciples came in the boat from about two hundred cubits offshore, dragging the net full of fish.
    9 So when they got out onto the land, they saw a charcoal fire with fish placed on it, and bread.
    10 Yeshua said to them, “Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught.”

    Romans 10 : 14 – 11 : 12

    14 How then shall they call on the One in whom they have not trusted? And how shall they trust in the One they have not heard of? And how shall they hear without someone proclaiming?

    15 And how shall they proclaim unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who proclaim good news of good things!”
    16 But not all heeded the Good News. For Isaiah says, “Adonai, who has believed our report?”
    17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Messiah.
    18 But I say, have they never heard? Indeed they have, for “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”
    19 But I say, did Israel not understand? First Moses says, “I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, with a nation empty of understanding I will vex you.”
    20 And Isaiah is so bold as to say, “I was found by those who did not seek Me; I became visible to those who did not ask for Me.”
    21 But about Israel He says, “All day long I stretched forth My hands to a disobedient and contrary people.”

    Israel Not Rejected

    1 I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
    2 God has not rejected His people whom He knew beforehand. Or do you not know what the Scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel?
    3 “Adonai, they have killed your prophets, they have destroyed your altars; I alone am left, and they are seeking my life.”
    4 But what is the divine response to him? “I have kept for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”
    5 So in the same way also at this present time there has come to be a remnant according to God’s gracious choice.
    6 But if it is by grace, it is no longer by works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.
    7 What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained; but the elect obtained it, and the rest were hardened—
    8 just as it is written, “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes not to see and ears not to hear, until this very day.”
    9 And David says, “Let their table become a snare and a trap, a stumbling block and a retribution for them.
    10 Let their eyes be darkened so they do not see, and bend their back continually.”
    11 I say then, they did not stumble so as to fall, did they? May it never be! But by their false step salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke Israel to jealousy.

Breaking News. Spiritual Perspective.
  1. Sniper: A skilled military shooter detailed to spot and pick off enemy soldiers from a concealed place.

    Does it seem like you are in a hidden place with darkness all around you? And is the enemy breathing down your neck? Be encouraged. You may have the makings of a spiritual sniper. Snipers are concealed by darkness in the time of war, close to enemy territory. If you can't see daylight, you may be right on schedule. Darkness brings out a sniper's full potential. "We Own the Night!" is their motto.

    Not many of God's people can stand being hidden for long periods of time. It's a lonely, dark place but you are not alone. God is with you, and He's creating something powerful out of you. The Lord is saying to many: "The enemy will soon know why you haven't been heard from as of yet. He will soon wonder where you came from. Treasure your hiddenness. It's your advantage. And don't fear the darkness. Your hardships and enemies have come to train you. Don't go AWOL. The moment you were born for is coming. Your light will pierce darkness. My spiritual snipers are coming forth in this season of war."

    Communication Is a Must in Your Hiddenness

    Although hidden, you must have clear communication with God and your comrades. You must learn the weapon of silence to hear. Silence makes the enemy wonder what you are up to while God is giving you strategy. Silence enables you to hear not only God's still small voice but also the enemy's next plan of attack. I sense the Lord saying, "I'm corporately anointing your ears to hear and eyes to see what no other generation has ever heard or seen for this end time spiritual war. Keep in communication with one another. At times, your comrades will be your eyes and ears. It's the lifeline to win. Communicate even if you don't agree. Communicate until you do. You are a team, and no one goes anywhere without each other. A team that can move as one is a dominating force. Laying down your life for each other is not a question. You are no longer considered your own."

    Maneuvering Offensively

    "From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been suffering violence, and the violent have been seizing it by force" (Matt. 11:12, HCSB).

    A former sniper shared with me how he was sent ahead of his troop and how he concealed himself close to the enemy. He said, "A vacant building or any forsaken covering gave me an edge for my deadly aim." He also said, "I became a terror to the terrorists. I could paralyze a large troop with one fatal shot to their comrades. Terror would grip them, for they didn't know where I was. At times, I shot from a window of a forsaken building and then ran. If they suspected where I was they would immediately launch heavy artillery into that place. Bounties were placed on my head."

    I asked him, "Were you afraid of dying?" He said, "No, I died when I left home. If I had any fear in me, I wouldn't have survived what I went through."

    His words, "I died when I left home," pierced me. I wonder how many of us realize the day we gave our life to Jesus Christ was the day we died to ourselves, and He now lives in us. "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" (Gal. 2:20, MEV). And Jesus is never afraid. Having been through much warfare myself, I'm learning when I feel intimidated by the enemy, the truth is: that's really when he is terrified of me. So I move beyond what intimidates me and find sweet victory.

    Staying Focused

    Many will see other comrades being elevated this season. Don't be jealous or envious. They are being called to the front line where increased danger lies. Their advancement is your protection. It's a most dangerous time to compare ourselves with one another. Some will think that their strong anointing that's promoting them lessens their need for their comrades or those in authority over them. It actually increases your need for them.

    You may seem to be ahead of them in rank, but they are behind you to cover your back. If left alone with our increased anointings, we become dangerous to ourselves and others. This often results in "friendly fire." We need our comrades to keep speaking into our lives to adjust and sharpen our spiritual gifts and weapons to stay effective. Our training never ends. God will always have someone over us to learn from and someone under us to teach what we have learned.

    Biblical 'Sniper' Weapons

    "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds" (2 Cor. 10:4).

    Throughout history, snipers rise from obscurity to win wars. One person stands out to me as the greatest sniper in the Bible: David, a shepherd boy, hidden in the hillsides of Judea. Trained by a bear and a lion, he makes his debut with a giant named Goliath. David becomes a sniper in the eyes of the Philistine army as he takes out Goliath with a slingshot and stone. He knew that giant would look good on his resume.

    "Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teaches my hands to war, and my fingers to fight" (Ps. 144:1).

    David was also a warrior as a scribe. His writings still pierce the darkness in our lives today. The Lord is releasing a scribe anointing upon many for new songs, books, and movies to be written to dismantle powers of darkness upon the earth. Pick up your pen and fight!

    David's greatest weapon in his arsenal was worship. David was a full-time worshipper and part-time shepherd. He worshiped in secret, and God met him on the battlefield. Worship didn't keep David away from trouble. Worship brought God down into his troubles, and God never lost a battle.

    In the wars that rage against us today, our greatest weapon is still to worship God in the midst of chaos. Through worship, heaven comes and fills us with His love and presence, which can touch our worst enemies to surrender all to Jesus. Loving our enemies keeps them from getting inside of us. We will be facing many giants in the days to come. Don't leave home without your slingshot. Remember, since you are a believer, Jesus lives in you, and He is not afraid. Besides, you died when you left home.

    Welcome, sniper.

  2. The rewards of fasting far outweigh the obstacles of the enemy. Fasting has great rewards. Many believers are unaware of the great rewards that come through fasting. Understanding the great benefits of fasting will motivate more believers to make it a regular part of their lives.

    Matthew 6:17-18 says: "But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you will not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly."

    God promises rewards to those who fast in secret. Reward is God's favor, abundance and blessing. The open rewards of fasting include blessing, abundance, favor and prosperity. Learn the secret of obtaining God's reward through private fasting.

    No one needs to know you are fasting. As the Holy Spirit leads you, make this a personal discipline between you and God and see how He rewards you. "And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Heb. 11:6).

    Declare these rewards of fasting over your life to break the strongholds of the enemy: "Lord, I believe in the power of Your chosen fast (Isa. 58). Let my fasting destroy the yokes that the enemy has set up against me. Let Your light come into my life. Let health, healing and miracles be released in my life, and let me see breakthroughs of salvation and deliverance in my life through Your chosen fast. Let Your power and authority be released in my life. I drive every stubborn demon out of my life. Let every assignment of hell against me be broken—all pride, rebellion and witchcraft operating in my life will be destroyed through Your chosen fast."

    Believers can also declare the blessings of God in their life: "I humble my soul through fasting; let Your favor exalt me. Let Your anointing increase in my life. Let me enjoy restoration. Let Your covenant blessing and mercy be released on me. Nothing is impossible with You, Lord. Let my impossibilities become possibilities through Your chosen fast. Let my prayers be answered speedily. Guide me and manifest Your glory to me."

    For a slightly different approach, pray and declare the promises God gave his followers in Scripture: "I will fast according to the fast chosen by the Lord (Isa. 58:5). I will set my face toward the Lord God to make requests by prayer and supplication, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes (Dan. 9:3). I will proclaim a fast and humble myself before our God, to seek from Him the right way for my family and all our possessions (Ezra 8:21). I will turn to the Lord with fasting, weeping and mourning (Joel 2:12). I fast to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo heavy burdens, to the let the oppressed go free and to break every yoke (Isa. 58:6). I will fast in the secret place, and my Father, who sees in secret, will reward me openly (Matt. 6:18). I will not depart from the temple of the Lord but will serve God with fasting and prayers night and day (Luke 2:37)."

  3. It is an undeniable truth: What you hold on to is what will hold on to you. One of my life passages is Psalm 105:17-19, which reads, "He sent a man before them, Joseph, who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters; his neck was put in an iron collar. Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him." This passage speaks deeply to my soul. If anyone in history had valid reasons to carry pain with them throughout life, it was Joseph. Each of us who hears his story could easily understand if he were a bitter man. But Joseph chose to hold the promise instead of the pain. And the promise brought him through the pit and the prison to the palace. The promise he held onto also held onto him and propelled him to his place in God's plan.

    At just 17 years old, he experienced two vivid dreams that gave him a glimpse into destiny. He would one day be a leader. Not just a leader, but one of such significance that even his family would bow before him. He was excited about his future, excited enough to proudly tell the dreams to his brothers, his father and anyone who would listen. He would soon learn the valuable lesson that promises most often include some pain.

    Joseph's brothers began to call him, "the dreamer." And they weren't complimenting him. They held him in contempt, and one day seized on the opportunity to be rid of him once and for all. Little did they know as they beat him, mocked him, threw him in the pit and later sold him as a slave, they were setting him up for greatness. The painful setback was, in reality, a setup for destiny. Joseph later said, "But as for you, you intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many lives" (Gen. 50:20).

    Joseph endured the humiliation of slavery and the injustice of prison with such a firm grip on the promise that in both Potiphar's house and prison, the blessing was at work. The anointing for leadership elevated him to positions of trust with his peers and his superiors in both arenas. God was setting him up for the future. Setback after setback came, but he consistently refused to let go of the promise. Joseph learned that the promise demands preparation.

    "Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the Lord tested him" (Ps. 105:19). The word translated "tested" means "to try, refine, to purify, to fuse together, to prove the quality." The very promise God gives us works in us to bring us to the place of fulfillment. The great teacher Oswald Chambers said it this way, "God gives us the vision, then He takes us down to the valley to batter us into the shape of the vision, and it is in the valley that so many of us faint and give way. Every vision will be made real if we will have patience." 

    In the process of the promise, God purifies us. He gets us into the shape of the vision. Stop praying for what you are unwilling to prepare for! When the time comes for the promise to become a reality, we must be ready.

    The process of the promise prepares us. Joseph's motivation was purified until the dream was no longer about him but others. Those who know why will always lead those who know what and how. Joseph's associations changed. He was removed from his comfortable place and put into a place of continual discomfort physically, mentally and emotionally. It seemed that his dreams were only the prideful wishes of a spoiled brat lying on his mat wrapped in his special coat of many colors. But God was holding onto to Joseph in the damp prison when all he possessed was a worn-out blanket. When it felt like the night would never let him go, God was holding him.

    Joseph tapped into three keys that enabled him to thrive in captivity and endure to experience His destiny! First, he consistently chose to hold the promise and not the pain. I know the pain is real, but the promise is of a greater reality. In Jesus, the promises are "'Yes,' and in Him 'Amen,' to the glory of God through us" (2 Cor. 1:20). He is faithful! Second, Joseph consistently chose to believe the promise even when the facts screamed, "No way!" Like his great grandfather Abraham, Joseph did not consider the current circumstances to the be the final word. He believed the word of the Lord. Third, he persevered through the power of patience. He refused to be distracted by pain or pleasure from the promise God gave him.

    Joseph held onto the promise, and the promise held on to him. If Joseph can do it. then so can you. In fact, you possess a distinct advantage over Joseph. You have his story! Hebrews 6:12 instructs us to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. If you are born again, you have the DNA of Jesus. Your Holy Spirit of God is dwelling inside you. Make a choice to hold on to the promise regardless of how the process looks! Don't give up on the future because of failure in the past or weakness in your present. Let the promise shape you and make you. Your world needs you. The time is here for you to be a blessing to your generation. Hold on to the promise, because what you hold on to—will hold onto you!

  4. My husband and I were walking by a large pond in our neighborhood. We live in the low country of South Carolina, and our ponds are full of alligators as well as other reptiles and amphibians. We also have blue herons, snowy egrets, cormorants, ospreys, red-tailed hawks, ibis and wood storks, all of which make our walks so incredibly delightful. That day, the gators were out in full force. We must have seen five or six on our short walk. For the first time ever, we heard an alligator growl. Our neighbors, who were walking several steps ahead, stopped and shouted back, "Hey, did you hear that?"

    "Yes," I said, "but what is it?" Our neighbor replied that it was the sound of an alligator in mating season.

    It reminded me of a time when I was a young woman, and I growled at my husband in that same way. It was in the labor room as I was getting ready to give birth to my son. I had been in hard Pitocin-induced labor, with its characteristic intense and abrupt contractions of the uterus, for 18 hours. I cannot remember ever being in such pain. It seemed as though it would go on forever. However, when my sweet baby son was placed in my arms, all the pain I experienced seem to fade from my memory. As I peered into his beautiful blue eyes, I saw in him the reflection of my husband and me looking down at him. Joy. What joy. He was perfect.

    When a baby is being born, it has to be pushed through the birth canal. He has to leave his place of security and comfort and go to a new place of the unknown. It cannot be a pain-free process for either the mother or the child, but when complete, the baby feels safe in his parents' arms. The child quickly identifies with the mother who carried him for nine months, and then recognizes the father as he quickly connects with him also. The pain is soon forgotten, and the joy of new life takes its place.

    If you have ever had children, you might remember that precious look in your babies' eyes when they first looked up and recognized their father. The newborn knows almost nothing, yet he knows to whom he belongs. Think back to the time when you saw the father gazing into the eyes of his newborn. Dad was beaming with joy at every sound and every little movement.

    Now take this picture of a father and a newborn and apply that to how God feels when we have come through a difficult period of refinement. He smiles down at His child. He is so pleased. He sees more of His own perfect reflection as He gazes into the soul that has been refined. Was all the pain worth it? Yes. Yes. Yes. Pain is here for a time, but joy comes in the morning after the darkness of the night. Joy bubbles up inside you when you come through the fires of refinement. It is a joy that cannot compare with mere happiness. It's deeper. It's richer. It's more intense.

    Trials come. Tribulation comes. However, as believers, we are to count it all joy when we have to face various trials and temptations (James 1:2). How can we do that? Are we supposed to fake our way through it? Are we to put on a happy face when everything in us is hurting? I think our real test is to not become a victim of our own circumstances but instead to be victorious, knowing that through the trial we are being refined. In the process, we are being purged of all that is not like God.

    And this is an important process. After all, as Charles Spurgeon once said, "No faith is so precious as that which lives and triumphs in adversity. Tried faith brings experience. You could not have believed your own weakness had you not been compelled to pass through the rivers; and you would never have known God's strength had you not been supported amid the water-floods."

    Prayer Power for the Week of Sept. 17, 2017

    This week, in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well as remembering the impact of the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001, continue to pray and ask the Lord to guide your steps to make you a blessing to those who desperately need it. Pray for unity among believers and across the nation as we combine efforts to help those victimized by both natural and terrorist disasters. Continue to pray for the president and those working with him to do what's best for the country. Remember our allies as well. Read James 1:2; 1 Peter 1:6-7; 2 Corinthians 8:7.

  5. It was on a calm May morning that the Lord spoke this word to me. I was sitting on my front porch, seeking the Lord in prayer, and I heard an unfamiliar word. It was the first time I ever heard a word from the Lord in another language known to man, but not known to me. I heard the word, "sun hi" well up in my spirit. It was one of those moments where you wonder, "Am I making this up, or is this the Holy Spirit?" To my amazement, I found out that this was a Korean word meaning, "goodness and joy." The Lord instructed me to release this word in my prayer time over the nation of North Korea.

    Shortly after revealing this word, the Holy Spirit showed me a vision of Kim Jong Un with strings attached to his limbs like a puppet. I began to understand that this man was being puppeteered and manipulated by the powers of darkness. I sensed the urge to speak to those strings and to curse their attachments. My heart has been heavy at times for this nation and for its leader. I have found myself in times of deep intercession and weeping before the Lord, declaring the sun hi of the Lord over every person in North Korea.

    I have cried out for revival in this nation and for radical encounters in His presence over Kim, not fully understanding why God was burdening me with this. It was not until a few nights ago that I understood the burden. God was not desiring for revival to visit them, but to revisit them. There is a much deeper reason that the devil is trying to dominate this nation with his darkness and destruction.

    The Enemy's Fear of Revival Rebirthed

    It may shock you to know that this year marks 110 years since the Pyongyang revival of 1907. It was a great move of God on the Korean peninsula, manifesting in repentance, evangelism and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea, and its name inadvertently holds a prophetic meaning, "peaceful land." This city became known as the "Jerusalem of the East" during the time of this revival. The revival lasted for 40 years, spanning all levels of society, not excluding the political arena. It is said that Kim Jong Il's grandparents were active in the Protestant church.

    This revival came on the winds stirring from the Welsh revival and the awakening of India in 1905. The Korean people were relinquishing their sorrow and grief endured under the oppression of Japanese rule, and they were encountering the Holy Spirit. They confessed their sins to one another, and they surrendered to the Lord for inward change to manifest outwardly. The sun hi of the Lord was unleashed upon them during this time, and the church grew exponentially in this nation.

    As I read about this revival and what happened in this nation now divided, I understand why the enemy fights to maintain control. He fears what once was in this land. There is an open heaven for the glory of the Lord to manifest in this nation. Pyongyang was staked and claimed for the kingdom of God. Kim Jong Un bears the trace of another bloodline in his family, and now that we recognize it, we have an open invitation to claim him for the kingdom of God and to declare the salvation of the Lord upon his household. Though darkness looms in this nation, revival cannot be denied from its history. Too much has happened to give it to the devil. Where are the intercessors in this hour? Why are we chanting the rhetoric of the world instead of the prayers authored by the Holy Spirit?

    Provoked to Pray

    I want to provoke the intercessors and prayer warriors in this hour to pray for this nation and for the current situation. We have a great privilege and opportunity in this moment to pray fervently for a nation to be reunited as one. I believe when we pray for others to be made whole, we will catch the vision for our nation to be made whole by the power of God. We need to repent on behalf of our nation for assisting in the dividing of Korea decades ago, permitting the enemy to cast his shadow in the north while attempting to overshadow God's footprint upon "the peaceful land."

    I invite you to join me in declaring the sun hi of the Lord over the entire Korean nation, including Kim Jong Un. Bombard the heavenlies with declarations over North Korea that the agenda of Satan will not prevail and that the land is ripe for revival. Push back the darkness with the light of Christ. Resist the fear of nuclear war by commissioning angels to war on behalf of the prophetic words and prayers released in alignment with the Word of God.

    We have the authority to bind and to loose in prayer by the authority of Jesus Christ. God made a way more than a century ago for His presence to manifest among the people of Korea. It began with a prayer meeting. May it be rekindled in the same manner. {eoa}
