Dear Intercessors: Right now, Martin and I and the PRMI team are in arrived in Israel to begin our Jerusalem Prayer Endeavor.
This Discerning The Times is unlike most – short! Just a word of giving praise and thanksgiving. God seems to have answered our prayer to bind the spirit of lawlessness that could have broken out with the planned Antifa protest during the weekend.
Many us had the urgent calling to step into the gap and to bind the demons. Apparently the Holy Spirit orchestrated an entire prayer movement in opposition to the Radical Left/Marxist strongholds that pose a real and present danger not just to America, but to the Kingdom of God.
I reported this in the Discerning the Times on November 3, 2017.
Praise God nothing substantial took place and the result was that the Antifa protest events fizzled and were so sparsely attended that basically nothing happened. There are many reports of this non-event. Here is one:
“What was billed as a massive demonstration of resistance to fascism and the tyranny of the Trump administration, Antifa managed to gather 300 people in Times Square. In Portland, Oregon, the ‘crowd’ was not numbered in the thousands or even the hundreds, but in the dozens.”

Frankly I wonder if our prayers blocked the full expression of the demon of lawlessness through Antifa gatherings so Satan went off in a rage and worked through an open door in the terrible shooting at the church in Texas.
But please keep praying! In our Discerning the Times, I listed off some of the prayer tactics that the Holy Spirit may be calling us to implement as we are called to continue to engage these powerful demonic strongholds based on Radical Islam and the Marxist Radical Left. I think the Lord is calling us to a protracted struggle and we must not be deceived into thinking that Antifa has gone away. To the contrary, this temporary defeat may only drive them deeper into the arms of Satan and into an alliance with Radical Islam as they seek more power. Please go back to the Discerning the Times article and seek direction as to how to apply those suggested tactics.
But for now: We praise God and glorify Jesus Christ for calling us into the work of prayer and answering those prayers. To bring an unraveling of this demonic stronghold based on Marxism and Radical Islam.
Please join us in praying as we finish this Jerusalem Prayer Endeavor. If you would like to get the last few updates to know how to pray for us please sign up for that here. Martin Boardman will be sending the updates.
Also, I am working on two major writing projects. One is a book that is urgent to get out as soon as possible entitled, Praying to Defeat Satan’s Plans to Destroy America. This is the third book in the series, A Prayer Strategy for the Victory of Jesus Christ. This book deals with the demonic strongholds attacking the United States in particular, and Western Culture in general, from within. I really need wisdom and discernment as I engage in this. It is sort of like sending reports back from the battlefront in the mist of the battle instead of having the leisure of 20/20 hindsight.
The second major book project is with Doug McMurry, a book on how to pray in the great end time revival that will fulfill the Great Commission. This is all about how God is working to heal the breach between Jew and Gentile and to bring the four great waves of the Holy Spirit that are converging on Jerusalem. I am convinced that this book is strategic for understanding our role in advancing the Kingdom of God. I am working on it while here in the land of Israel. Already this book has been growing out of this and our previous trips here. Now, I am here to receive the rest of the narrative of the role as the One New Man.
Thanks so much for your love, prayer and friendship.
