In today’s Wall Street Journal, August 4, 2018, I read an article in the opinion pages titled, Anarchy Breaks Out in Portland with the Mayors Blessing.
You may read the editorial if you wish: Anarchy in Portland, Oregon
The editorial reflects on what took place with anarchy during June in Portland.
I gained a deeper understanding of the social, political and spiritual dynamics which high-level evil spirits (archons) may use. Through these dynamics they can create the conditions to stir up further chaos and conflict for Satan’s purposes.
Just as I finished reading the article at 7:30 am, Jon Gurley, an intercessor, called. While he had not read the editorial, he had read reports on the Internet which suggested the possibility of a major clash taking place today, Saturday, August 4th, in Portland.
I then read two of the reports he mentioned, one from Fox news and the other from USA Today.
From Fox News:
A report from USA Today:
As Jon read these and other reports, he received what he believes may be guidance from the Holy Spirit. The guidance exposes Satan’s plans for evil and calls us as intercessors into the gap to block those plans.
Here is the guidance Jon received –
“Satan is creating the conditions in Portland for another clash between the Radical Left and Radical Right, like in Charlottesville.”
Jon said the Holy Spirit had already called him into the gap to pray for the constraint of the forces behind anarchy and violence.
From the Fox and USA Today reports it seems a possibility exists for a major clash today, August 4th, or in the near future.
The moment I heard this and assessed the situation, I felt the Lord calling me in two ways.
- First, into the gap as an intercessor.
- Second, to urgently mobilize intercessors in preparation for possible engagements with the high-level evil spirits working behind the human actors.
I must tell you, the developments in Portland have alarmed me.
They appear to be a part of Satan’s strategy in using the Marxist/Hegelian dialectic to create the conditions in America for the imposition of tyranny.
Through these conditions the high-level demons of lawlessness and antichrist can work more effectively to create chaos. Their purpose is to arouse the people’s desire for reestablishment of order at any cost.
It seems to me that we are entering what is known as “the hour of the power of darkness.”
In this case, actions which take place in Portland may have a multiplying and amplifying effect on the rest of the United States.
The net result would be to open the way for more evil and to increase the potential for spreading that evil.
The hour of the power of darkness must be prevented from gaining in power. We need to bind the demons behind the violence and chaos.
If these archons gain an advantage, the unleashing of their invisible work behind the scenes may produce uncontrollable consequences. Even despite our earnest prayers.
As I was writing this Discerning the Times, I received word from a trusted PRMI intercessor. She said a police officer from Portland, who is a friend of hers, texted her saying, ““Big protest today. Please pray for peace.” This is confirmation that something big is planned and the police are getting ready for it!.
To help in your discernment, analyze the situation in Portland and seek to understand its spiritual significance. For a historical precedent reread the after-action reviews of the prayer battles which took place last year in Charlottesville. The guidance Jon received indicates that something like Charlottesville is unfolding in Portland.
I have written an analysis of the events in Charlottesville, which will be a chapter of my forth coming book, Defeating Satan’s Plans to Destroy America. In this chapter I explain the concept of the Marxist/Hegelian dialectic and why it is effective and dangerous. I also explain the concept of the “hour of the power of darkness.”
In reading the chapter you will better see why intercessory prayer is so urgent. You can read it by clicking on the following link –
(I would deeply appreciate any comments you may have on this chapter. It is a draft and not fully edited.)
I feel it is urgent to get this note out to all of you.
Is the Lord speaking to you to step into the gap and pray?
Please send any discernment you have as it is urgent we quickly discern and step into the gap to prevent any further outbreak of anarchy.
- Pray for peace – that the violence would be blocked from erupting
- Pray for bad weather that would disrupt the desire for people to gather (let it rain!)
- Pray that the plans for violence be confused and diffused
- Pray that communications among those plotting evil would be cut off
- Pray that the evil spirits at work behind the scenes would be bound, cut off from reinforcements, and unable to communicate with each other
Thanks in Christ,
