I want to communicate with you about two separate subjects today. The first is an urgent request for discernment and prayer, the second is guidance for intercession out of our recent trip to Israel.
For urgent discernment and direction for prayer: Are the same demonic dynamics that formed around Hitler during his early rise to power and later brought such destruction of life and liberty now forming around the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump?
Yesterday I received a call from an intercessor who asked not to be named. She was very disturbed by the surprising guidance that she received. This guidance is all the more surprising and authentic because this person has played a leadership role in the Tea Party Movement and actually resonates with what Donald Trump is saying. She is also a registered Republican and active in that party. Below she describes her experience:
A Call to Deep Intercession on behalf of the United States –
I would like to share something that I believe may be Christ calling us into deep intersession on behalf of the United States. I had set the kids up for our afternoon quiet hour and had laid down for a few moments of quiet in my bedroom. As I drifted off to sleep, I was praying for our nation and the upcoming election. Particularly, that we as a people would have our eyes opened to God’s Truth, our hearts broken with the sin in our nation, and our knees bent in submission to Jesus Christ. I also prayed that Satan’s plans for our nation, particularly through the political process, would not remain hidden but that our eyes would be truly opened to see the real nature of what is going on in Washington. With that prayer fresh in my mind, I drifted off to sleep.
I was then startled out of sleep with a thought (or maybe a voice?) so urgent that I jumped up. This was the thought:
That currently forming around the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, are the same demonic dynamics that formed around Hitler during his early rise to power and later brought such destruction of life and liberty. AND that Christ our King and Commanding General is calling His people now in the next few days to pray for the dismantling of that power and for the advancement of His Kingdom purposes at the highest level of the American Federal government.
Once I had recovered from the initial shock, I thought to myself… “Wow, that’s crazy!” Donald Trump is Hitler? No, of course not. There will never be another individual just like Hitler but the same forces that awaken lust for power, dominance, and greed covered in the outward appearance of concern for the nation, smooth talking, and can-do attitude are still very much alive and well, and have used popular leaders in the past to cause the downfall of many a civilization before us.
So, still a little shaky from the experience, I called a trusted individual who is wise is God’s Word and is a woman of prayer and discernment, my mother. I told her what I had heard and she confirmed that it wasn’t crazy but that it resonated with her as well.
So I submit this to further discernment and clarity, for if this is truly from the Lord, it is both incredibly urgent and strategic. I sense we are at a critical tipping point and the moment of decision will be soon upon us as a people and nation.
Comment by Brad Long –
The moment I heard this I felt the urgency to get this out to all of you. And I do witness to it. It is consistent with the way that Satan has often worked to advance his deceitful and deadly purposes. It is by leading a nation or a movement to overreact to one evil by another and often even greater evil. The intercessor’s correlation with Hitler is apropos. The movement of Fascism embodied in Hitler and the movement of National Socialism was a reaction against the government of the Weimar Republic that was moving toward a democratic form of government until overwhelmed by war reparations and the economic disaster of the great depression.
The Weimar government also had failed to heal the wounds of the defeat of World War I and restore national prestige. Hitler and his party came promising to restore the greatness of Germany and fix all their problems. Obviously the parallels are not exact but they are suggestive. It well could be that Satan is planning a reaction to the triumph of the stronghold of Liberal Progressivism in the Obama Administration, with an even more dangerous stronghold based on “Reactionary Conservatism.”
This has been Satan’s pattern of working in the past. For instance, in reaction to the horrors of Nazism, the rise of Stalinist and Maoist Communism that enslaved and exterminated far more people than Nazism, and in North Korea continues to do so even to this day.
When I was talking to this intercessor she said that she did not feel this potential for forming such a stronghold in the other front runners of the Republicans candidates. Please discern this!!!! And please get back right away with any discernment that you may have.
(Also if any of you intercessors who are registered Democrats would offer some discernment and direction for prayer concerning the front runners in the Democratic ticket that would be much appreciated and would help us all in this work of prayer. )
As always please send me any discernment that you may have. Please send it right to my personal email address email@example.com
Guidance for intercession coming out of the Jerusalem Prayer Endeavor
I am just back from a fantastic two-week trip to Israel for our 2016 February Jerusalem Prayer Endeavor. The Lord worked in amazing ways there connecting us to major rivers of the Holy Spirit that are fulfilling the Great Commission.
We also saw very clearly the dynamic of Satan’s work of building the strongholds to replace God’s way of salvation through Jesus Christ with the deception of Islam and genocide of Jews and Christians. Our primary focus in this work was connecting with the remnant of Israel who are coming to know Yeshua as the Messiah and are being empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Here is a short video that Doug McMurry and I did at the Jerusalem Prayer Tower that tells the strategic nature of this connection with the Messianic Jewish movement and the critical work of intercession in which we are called to join.
Satan’s changing tactics
There is a second critical point that was revealed to us on this trip that I think is urgent to share with all of us who are called to discern the times and engage in intercessory prayer. This is from Doug McMurry, who while at the Temple Mount at the Dome of the Rock saw clear evidence that Satan has made a major shift of tactics: He has moved from warfare that is hidden and restrained into overt clear manifestations of raw evil. In this short video Doug gives a strong warning of the need for vigilance in intercession and guidance as to the Devil’s tactics. I believe that what he is saying is true and confirms for me that we have entered that time of the “Gathering Storm” in which Satan is already unleashing a tsunami of evil upon the world. This will be primarily through the demonic strongholds of Radial Islam but also totalitarianism and Reactionary Conservatism.
I will be reporting much more to you out of the Jerusalem Prayer Endeavor but wanted to get this out to you as soon as possible so you can join us in praying into this.
As always please send me any discernment that you may have. (Please send it right to my personal email – firstname.lastname@example.org)
