I believe the Holy Spirit has given me a prophetic vision of where we are in the spiritual, political, and cultural battle for America’s and the West’s Judeo-Christian soul. This vision is an urgent call to us as intercessors to both heightened vigilance and to be prepared to be called into prayer engagements. We must be prepared for all three battle spaces, including battle space # 1, which engages high-level demonic powers.
A Prophetic Vision of America
The vision that I received was in several parts.
- First, I saw an image of the Battle of Dunkirk and a map of Europe. Britain was embattled from without by Nazi armies, and within by the party of appeasement. I received the words: “America is like England in 1940.”
- Second I saw an image of the Seven Mountains of Cultural Influence having been lost to the Radical Left and Liberal Progressivism.
- Third, I saw the remnant of the Body of Christ and all the political leaders and cultural institutions who are upholding the Judeo-Christian values. They were being surrounded, like Britain in 1940, by the Seven Mountains of Cultural Influence which had become fortresses of evil.
- Fourth, I saw a vision of those mountains all violently erupting as volcanoes and landslides destroying the surrounded outposts of the Church of Jesus Christ and those upholding our Judeo-Christian values. I heard the words:
I am calling my intercessors into the gap, to defeat these plans of Satan for the destruction of America’s Judeo-Christian foundations and the Body of Christ in America.“
- With this word came the awareness, that through our being obedient to the Lord’s call and for us to step into our places of intercession, God would work the equivalent of the “Miracle of Dunkirk” 1 and would not only rescue and bless the remnant but would use them decisively to reverse the tide of evil.
Please bear with me as I unpack some of this as I believe it relates directly to us right now in the call that is being given to intercessors not just of Presbyterian-Reformed Ministries International (PRMI) but of the entire Body of Christ.
The United States in 2020, is spiritually and politically equivalent to Britain in 1940 when the United Kingdom was surrounded by conquering Nazi armies!
I believe the Lord is saying that to understand where America is right now in August of 2020, we need to look at Britain in 1940.
It may not be an exaggeration to say that the spiritual and political realms, at the end of August 2020, are comparable to 1940 when Britain stood alone and was faltering against the onslaught of Nazi Germany.
In May and June of 1940, France had fallen and with it, most of Europe. The British Army – about 300,000 men including remnants of the French and Belgian forces – were trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk, France facing near-certain annihilation from the advancing Nazi juggernaut seeking to open Britain up to invasion.
You can see from the map, that most of Europe was controlled by expanding Nazi militant power. Britain had one obvious escape route as well as the means to counter the Nazi domination of Europe. It was the United States and the Dominion of Canada.
But America was dithering, German wolfpacks of U-Boats patrolled the North Atlantic, and Britain was isolated and standing alone. Winston Churchill, Britain’s Prime Minister, described this period as their “Darkest Hour.” 2
Britain was standing alone in the military and international sphere, while at the same time Winston Churchill was also standing nearly alone in the political sphere. In speech after speech he boldly unmasked the monstrous evil of Nazism and resisted the chorus of those in Britain’s government clamoring for appeasement and surrender.
In the spiritual realm, Rees Howells 3 and the motley band of intercessors at the Bible College of Wales were raising a prayer shield, daily and nightly, against the demonic strongholds of Nazism.
These strongholds were poised to engulf Great Britain, either through military invasion or subversion by appeasement within. The intercessors, through the authority of Jesus Christ, continued to bind the deadly power and might of the Devil manifesting through Adolf Hitler.
This disastrous situation for Britain had not occurred overnight but had been decades in the making. During this build-up, Churchill’s lone voice had warned over and over again of the lethal danger posed by the ever-growing Nazi war machine.
He had warned against the dangers of appeasement by French and British leaders. However, I believe that through a masterpiece of demonic cloaking, Satan had blinded the public and above all the government leaders to the growing threat. They had become deaf to Churchill’s concerns.
They could not hear the warnings, partly because their own worldview could not conceive of such evil. But they also had a hatred and disgust of Winston Churchill because of his drinking, at times extravagant language, and brash personality.
The press, as well as government leaders opposed to Churchill, fixated on the military disaster of the Dardanelles Campaign 4 in 1915, which was unjustly blamed on Churchill. They were blinded by Churchill’s very problematic and strident opposition to granting Dominion status to India in 1931 which ran against his own high ideals, common sense, as well as British public opinion.
There were many other foibles and personality traits that Satan used to blind people from seeing what God was doing through Winston Churchill. And for this blindness, the world paid the terrible cost of World War II with millions dead and many nations laid waste.
Now, how is this in any way comparable to America in August 2020?
The Seven Mountains of Culture
In the next phase, I saw an image of the Seven Mountains of Cultural Influence. These seven areas are often listed as follows:
- Arts & Entertainment
Over the years, this vision of the Seven Mountains 5 has called Christians not merely to focus their prayers on these seven areas but actually to enter into them so as to bring into them the influence of living biblical faith.
Dr. Lance Wallnau 6 has provided a lot of excellent teaching on the Seven Mountains. It is not my intention here to teach on this or join in the debate about whether it is biblical or not, but just to give you enough background to understand the vision. The image that came to me may well come from the many pictures that I have seen like this:
In the vision, I saw these Mountains of Cultural Influence, to varying degrees, effectively taken over and occupied by demonic strongholds. These strongholds are based on the totalitarian struggle and ideologies found in Islam and modern renditions of Marxism merged with magic and the occult.
These demonic strongholds occupying the high ground of these seven mountains are behind the movements of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, theological liberalism in the Church, magic and the occult, and Islam. There are also movements based on white supremacy mingled in and often in conflict with the Marxist movements.
Similar in thought, Ben Shapiro, in his book How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps, has documented how the radical left and allied movements, which he calls “Disintegrationist”, actually have taken over each of these spheres (mountains) of cultural influence and are working to accomplish their goals of destroying the United States.
In my vision, I saw that all of these strongholds, established on each of these metaphorical cultural mountains, are presently combining their forces in an accelerating way. I believe the enemy is seeking to complete a major assault before and during the American election in November. This would be unleashing their plans of destruction for America and then the West as part of that agenda.
This is all comparable to the Nazi avalanche that besieged Britain’s militarily from without and by the party of appeasement within the British government in 1940. Only a few prescient people like the intercessor Rees Howells, Churchill and America’s President Roosevelt saw it at the time. This was not just Britain’s “Darkest Hour” but also the darkest hour of all Western Civilization.
Who is “Britain” now in the third and fourth quarter of 2020? In government and society, it is all those who are seeking to uphold and to defend the Judeo-Christian values embedded in the United States Declaration of Independence and Constitution. In the spiritual realm, it comprises of all those who have upheld and live out biblical faith.
It is those in the spiritual and cultural realm who have not been deceived into bowing a knee to Baal. Those who have resisted joining the chorus reciting the narrative that is upholding the social, cultural and political construct of the demonic strongholds based on an amalgamation of anti-Christian ideologies and “values”. They understand that Satan is on his quest to destroy and replace their Biblical Judeo-Christian foundations.
There is another sobering parallel between 2020 and 1940. I believe that the person through whom God has chosen to work to oppose this assault from the Radical Right and the Radical Left, is President Donald J. Trump. The Lord is using President Trump as he did Churchill to lead the United States through this period of its “Darkest Hour”. The Lord has been using President Trump to first name the evil for what it is, and then call us back to our Judeo-Christian values as embedded in the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Listen to the prophetic words spoken by President Trump at the Fourth of July speeches 7 to see him in this role that is parallel to that of Churchill.
However, just as it was with Churchill, Satan is using hatred of President Trump and public dislike of his style and past immoral life, and his many other failings and foibles, to blind and deceive people. This is preventing us from seeing and cooperating with what God is doing through the President. The world paid a terrible cost for such blindness in the 1930s and 1940s, and we will too in the 2020s unless we have our eyes open.
Surrounded by the Seven Mountains
In my prophetic vision I saw the Seven Mountains suddenly move and formed nearly a complete ring around those of Biblical Faith, but one side was still open.
I saw the United States as Britain, closed in and surrounded, as in 1940. The Seven Mountains each now represented a demonic fortress, forming a circle around those individuals, churches and synagogues, governmental and social structures upholding biblical faith, and Judeo-Christian values.
Looking around right now, all of this feels impossible and overwhelming and the victory of evil seems inevitable. The overwhelming temptation is to compromise, to seek appeasement, simply to give up and go with the overwhelming tide of public opinion, or to retreat into other-worldly focus on Jesus, fulfilling His mandate of giving cups of cool water to the least of these while neglecting or even opposing Jesus’ other mandate of praying, “Thy Kingdom Come” (Matthew 6:9-13)!
It may be a prophetic vision, or just all my fears based on analysis of the current trajectory of events, so time will tell. I am confident that the remnant is surrounded by that ring of impenetrable evil-mountain fortresses. We are like the remnant of the army gathered on the beach at Dunkirk. The strongholds are closing in upon us.
There is an intensification of the attacks taking place on all sides. The demonic narrative is being shouted and shrieked ever louder in mind-numbing repetition. Black Lives Matter! Trump is a Racist! Abolish the Police! I can’t Breathe! Stop police brutality, No Trump, NO Wall, No USA At All! Workers of the World Unite!…
The Mountains Erupt
Once again, whether prophetically or not I do not know, I saw in my vision, suddenly sometime before the election in November, all of the Seven Mountains exploding in earthquakes, sparking avalanches and volcanic eruptions. These strongholds of evil began engulfing the spiritual, cultural and political remnant and with it destroying and replacing the Constitutional foundations and civic society of the United States and other Western Nations.
I am, in short, seeing the impending fulfillment of those terrible apocalyptic visions of the destruction from within and without of the United States just as it could have been in Britain in 1940. Soon to follow in this path of destruction would be Canada and the United Kingdom. When suddenly, I was caught up into the heavenlies and given the assignment to “mobilize, equip and deploy an army of intercessors” through which Jesus would work to prevent these plans of Satan from being accomplished.
In summary, I believe with all my heart, mind and soul that the remnant is surrounded by the Seven Mountains of Cultural Influence, that over the past fifty years have been mostly lost to Satan. Their final combined assault upon the Kingdom of God has already begun, as manifested in the special grace structures of the Church and expressed in the common grace structures of government and society based on Judeo-Christian values.
If this plan is not stopped in the next three months, it will accomplish its terrible purpose — which will be a calamity not just for America but for the world. It would mean the unleashing of Satanic power through these Antichrist ideologies destroying America’s constitutional government. Society would experience a reign of evil surpassing the horrors of the Nazi take over of Germany or the Communist take over of Russia and China. If this happens now in 2020, just as then in the 1940’s, there would be a tragic set-back of the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While the Kingdom of God will prevail in the end, the cost in human life and all those countless souls robbed of freedom and the opportunity to know Jesus Christ and be saved, would be immeasurably tragic.
A Miracle of Dunkirk
There is a lot of history that I would love to tell you about, and if you have watched the two movies, “Darkest Hour” and “Dunkirk”, you will be aware of some of this amazing history. The most obvious miracle was that the stranded 300,000 military-men were rescued by a fleet of hundreds of small civilian vessels 8.
The concept of launching a bold response and not to give into calls to work a deal with the Nazis was the result of Churchill’s extraordinary leadership. But there were other humanly inexplicable events that made this miracle of deliverance possible. First was the weather, as there was cloud cover that limited the German air force’s effectiveness.
Also, there was the fact that for some reason, Hitler had delayed the deployment of the nearby Panzer tank units that could have completed the destruction of the stranded army. I believe that behind all of this was the work of intercessors Rees Howells and the Bible College of Wales, working in combination with a great concert of prayer throughout the world. Along with God’s other means of the visionary leadership of Churchill, the role of the civilian navy, and the prayers of Christian faithful around the globe, this truly was a deliverance miracle.
As I was pondering this vision a word from the Lord came to me:
“I am calling my intercessors into the gap to defeat these plans of Satan for the destruction of America’s Judeo-Christian foundations, and the Body of Christ in America.”
With this word came the awareness that through our being obedient to the Lord’s call, as we step into our places of intercession, God would work the equivalent of the “Miracle of Dunkirk” and would not only rescue and bless the remnant but would use us decisively to reverse the tide of evil.
I know that I may seem a little extreme in all this but it is now early August! The twelfth hour! And I am driven by an urgency to put in place the guidance of how God is calling PRMI intercessors to play our strategic role in preventing this impending catastrophe and having the Kingdom of God prevail over Satan’s plans.
Just as I finished writing this prophetic vision, I received this word from an intercessor in Canada: “I have been sensing that God is giving us a brief period of rest before, if you will forgive me, ‘all hell breaks loose’, because that is precisely what will happen. Within a few weeks, we shall all be in the thick of it, and the battle will intensify until sometime in November. I do not know how we shall endure it, save by the grace of God and by His empowerment. But, it will come to an end with a tremendous victory, if we stand together, pray and do as we are led, and encourage one another with the communications means still open to us.”
I believe this immense victory stands at the threshold of the revival and great harvest which is so very much longed for by our God and King.
As I have shared this prophetic vision, I have received many other confirming words. So I am passing this on to you to pray into. Intercessors are being called to step into their place of intercession, and to take part in this global movement of the Holy Spirit to defeat demonic strongholds and advance the Kingdom of God.
Will you help stand together in prayer with other intercessors around the globe at the precipice of a “Darkest Hour”? Perhaps you are called to pray for those who will stand? Perhaps you are called to financially support the ministerial efforts of the PRMI Prayer Initiative? Seek your heart and ask the Lord where you are called.
