Urgent: Before we could even get this Discerning the Times out, an urgent prayer need has been identified. Please pray today.
Praying for President Obama’s Speech tonight.
This is a word from an intercessor who has spent years in the military.
Tomorrow (September 10) President Obama is scheduled to lay out the plan (geopolitical and military) on how to deal with ISIS. I’m not trying to be derogatory to the President or his administration, but he and his administration have shown lack of understanding regarding military war plans; specifically double-talk, vague language and no clear goal(s). I’m really concerned that he will divulge too much information within the plan and that will aid the enemy.
I plead for all intercessors to pray that God will not allow this to happen. The military is astute in writing war plans. Let’s pray that the President will listen to his military advisors and speak publicly only what they advise. If this happens, then the public will hear the plan in general and the specifics will remain classified so the enemy won’t know what will happen.
Praise for Lord for answered prayer! Let us keep praying!
I have received a huge response to the last couple of editions of Discerning the Times, first much discernment from you about the Four Archons. Thank you. You have also responded to my encouragement to ask our Father to raise up both the Moses and Joshua workers to oppose and defeat the Demonic Stronghold of Isis. You may find these by clicking on the links:
In the last Discerning The Times, the Holy Spirit led me to ask you to pray the Father to muster Joshua workers with the military, political and economic power and means to destroy the demonic Stronghold of the Islamic State (ISIS). God raised up John III Sobieski the King of Poland with his well-equipped Polish hussar cavalry along with Austrians and Germans to defeat the Muslim Army at the siege of Vienna on September 12, 1683. I believe that Sobieski with his army were the Joshua workers through whom God answered the prayers of the chief intercessor – a Capuchin friar Marco d’Aviano.
Without either direct intervention by God the Father, or the Father working through the Joshua workers our prayers for Jesus to defeat and overcome this demonic strongholds of radical Islam will be of no effect. It now seems that the murderous actions of ISIS have been so violent and extreme that finally those with such power have been galvanized to action. And in what I believe is the answer not just of our prayers but of those Christians and all whom ISIS has condemned to death, there has taken place the following developments. Reported in the Friday, September 5th 2014 Wall Street Journal –
Coalition Emerges to Battle Islamic State Militants
NEWPORT, Wales—American allies including the U.K. and France said they would help form an international military coalition to fight a growing threat from Islamic State militants…

I believe this is very good news and certainly the beginning movement of putting in place the military force necessary to work against this rapidly growing evil.
In the realm of the Spirit, an intercessor in England, an intercessor named John received the following vision:
I had a picture the other day and I ask if you can pray about it.
I saw a huge gigantic snake and in its mouth was a bridle.
On its head was a man holding its reins, whom I thought was Jesus.
I felt that the snake was ISIS and Jesus was about to rein them in.
I know it is not much but it was all I got and I feel it was all I needed.
Let us continue to pray that this demonic stronghold will be broken. It must first take place in the realm of the Spirit as suggested by John’s vision, in the name of Jesus. But given the nature of this evil, it, like the Nazi party before it, has chosen death as its means of implementing its vision. It must be engaged with effective, coordinated and deadly military power.
Pray for this coalition to grow and to be joined by many other nations in the region. Pray that they will show no hesitation in destroying this demonic stronghold’s earthly means of death.
As intercessors we must pray in the name of Jesus Christ that the demonic powers that are driving them will be broken. We must also pray that the deception of Islam will be broken and that the light and salvation of Jesus Christ will be able to penetrate their hearts.
Update on discerning the Four Archons that have been set loose and are at work in the world – confirming the Archon Amalek.
Huge confirmation coming in on all this.
There is the strong confirmation about Gog and Moloch at work in the Middle East, in the Islamic Terrorist group Hamas, and in the Islamic State (ISIS).
Many have confirmed the spirit of lawlessness that is at work in the Obama Administration and the Democratic controlled Senate that works to negate the checks against tyranny built into the US Constitution. This means that we need to continue to pray that there will be an unraveling of the stronghold of Liberal Progressivism that has been woven together both in the PC (USA) as well as in the US Government.
It troubled me that no one sent me discernment about the demonic Archon of Amalek. I began to wonder if I was off there. And then Pat and Judy Cook sent me the following article from Israel National News. It is a long article, so I have pasted only those sections which, for me, confirm what I see of the Amalek Archon embodied in the demonic strongholds of ISIS and Hamas and all other forms of radical Islam.
Ki Tetsei: We Forget Amalek at Our Peril by Rabbi Dr. Eliyahu Safran
The world would do well to mirror the courage and decisiveness of the IDF in acting to “wipe out the memory of Amalek from under the heavens.”
Published: Thursday, September 04, 2014 4:53 PM
…It is an onerous burden to have our days darkened by the recollection of evil. But looking away, forgetting, is not an option. Evil is, as President Obama noted in referring to ISIS, a cancer. It grows. It metastasizes. It never sleeps.It never rests…
We forget Amalek at our peril…
Recently, we have been witness to the gruesome, barbaric beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, by the modern day Amalekites, ISIS. President Obama acknowledged that ISIS has no place in the civilized world but he emphasized that based on his understanding of history, “people like ISIS will ultimately fail.”
Perhaps. But only if we remember.
When confronted by Amalek, there is no place for hand-wringing or moralizing. There is the absolute imperative to remember, for to “not remember”, to forget is to look into the face of doom. We must remember so that we respond to Amalek without hesitation or diplomatic niceties and “wipe out the memory of Amalek from under the heaven – you shall not forget.”
Those of us whose families perished at the hands of another Amalek should never be comforted by gentle words; no lesson about the curve of history bending toward good should ease our concern. Amalek – evil – does not simply disappear. United Nations blather will not diminish Amalek’s gathering strength. Yes, Amalek will “fail”. Ultimately, Amalek will always fail.
But at what cost?
If we wait until Amalek grows in strength, the anguish and grief we endure will grow as well. The only modern day approach to Amalek is the one demonstrated by the grandchildren of those who experienced only too well what happened when the world chose not to remember what Amalek does, the IDF.
Instead, we get handwringing. We hear urgent calls to stop the IDF and leave Amalek to continue to metastasize…
“Evil carries with it a very heavy price that consumes all those associated with it. Amalek’s victories, vicious and all-encompassing as they appear, are still only temporary. The Torah tells us that the Lord fights Amalek, so to speak, ‘from generation to generation.’”
Evil never gives in.
Perhaps ISIS’s medieval cruelty has finally garnered the attention of the civilized world to the immediate and ever-present danger of Amalek.
Perhaps, the world will heed the words of Prime Minister Netanyahu when he recently told his Cabinet, “Many states in the region and in the West are beginning to understand that this is a single front, that Hamas is ISIS and ISIS is Hamas. They act in the same way. They are branches of the same poisonous tree. They are two extremist Islamic terrorist movements that abduct and murder innocents, that execute their own people, that shrink at nothing including the willful murder of children. In recent days we heard from Hamas spokesmen that they admit to what we have been saying all along, that they murdered [the three Israeli teens] Eyal, Gilad and Naftali.
“Both movements are, in effect, making an effort to establish Islamic rule, caliphates, without human rights, across wide areas, by slaughtering minorities… With every passing day the world understands more and more that Hamas operates like ISIS and that ISIS operates like Hamas. The State of Israel will continue to stand alongside the civilized world in its war against extremist and violent Islam.”
Amalek lives in our days. For students of history and Torah, this is no surprise.
It is also no surprise for Christians who understand the nature of evil that can only be overcome by the blood of Jesus Christ and not by any amount of good intentions or good works. It is also no surprise if we understand the nature of demonic strongholds.
Thanks everyone for your prayers and engagement in this great battle. I had a wonderful vacation last week and felt the Lord lift at least some of the physical and emotional weariness of the last months. However, even as I was there I was aware of the Holy Spirit praying through me and doing battle against this great evil.
As always please pass on any discernment you have. And please also pray for each other. This whole thing is far from over! It will require our continued work as intercessors. As Joshua workers gather in force and begin to oppose and to destroy this great evil, we like Moses, Aaron and Hur on the mountain must be steadfast in our work of engagement in the spiritual realm which is where the other battle is being waged.

ISIS, Hamas, Bokohirem, Taliban ….the enemy’s work clearly through militant Islam….one doesn’t look different from the other….like the vicious activity of a dying animal…in its pain to lash out to any nearby.
I am not the intercessor you are Brad. I get scripture instead of names or pictures…like 2 Chronicles 20 when the Ammonites, Meunites & Moabites came against Judah during the reign of King Jehoshaphat, HIs response to
the enemy’s threats was to pray from the Temple strong words of affirmation as to the power of God to act…..’we don’t know what to do, our eyes are on YOU.,
Then the assurance of the Lord through Jahaziel that …..don’t be afraid, don’t waver, march out boldly tomorrow. God is with you.
Then out they marched with worship ..the choir in the lead and hope and trust in their hearts that the battle is the Lord’s…and so it was.
We are calling for prayer in my house (my John went home to heaven 3 weeks ago) for Syria and Iraq ….and we will worship and listen for what God is doing.
feeling strongly led to have your back today Brad…
30 As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You make your saving help my shield,
and your right hand sustains me;
your help has made me great.
36 You provide a broad path for my feet,
so that my ankles do not give way.
37 I pursued my enemies and overtook them;
I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
38 I crushed them so that they could not rise
they fell beneath my feet.
39 You armed me with strength for battle;
you humbled my adversaries) before me.
40 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight,
and I destroyed my foes.
