Prayer Communique November 6
Some of this word I believe was to go out to the entire Discerning the Times mailing list on the afternoon of the 5th. With the second part of this going out the night of the 5th. But this got thwarted. For this failure, I take responsibility.
My prayer is that the Lord will redeem this mistake, but I have learned from long and bitter experience that when a word from the Lord is not spoken into the Kairos moment and to the people the Lord has chosen, it is missed and can not be retrieved. When we are in the type of spiritual battle for the soul of a nation as we are right now, such misses may have catastrophic results.
So here is what I was powerfully led to get out to all of you this morning. Pieces of this went out to about 100 intercessors but not to the entire list. Other parts came in later yesterday and have been added here for your discernment and prayer.
Right now 6 am, Nov 5th, the guidance that I am getting is as follows:
First, we are to continue to press into holding open the doors through our prayers. We need to pray for God to work the miracles needed to advance His Kingdom purposes on earth. You may recall that the guidance that I received that I believe is from the Lord, telling me that it was His intention to provide President Trump with 4 more years in office. This was in order to accomplish God’s Kingdom goals which among other things included securing the peace of Jerusalem and giving the Church freedom to pray in a great move of the Holy Spirit in order to fulfill the Great Commission in the next decade.
There were, however, several other aspects of the guidance given which are extremely important:
- First is that all the powers of hell working through the demonic strongholds on earth were being unleashed to prevent that from happening. Recall the vision I saw in August of the seven mountains of cultural influence erupting to prevent the advancement of the Kingdom of God. https://discernwith.us/what-year-is-it-it-is-like-england-in-1940#more-13464 I think that is happening right now!
Actually, I think this eruption of evil took place between 1:30-2:30 am the night of the election. At the time I was lying in bed, praying. About 1:00 am which is normally when the counting of elections is completed, I had checked my phone and saw that President Trump was way ahead in many strategic locations.
I did not check the news again but just continued to pray. I suspect I was drifting off to sleep when suddenly, the Holy Spirit fell upon me in power. A moment later it was like a cloud of demonic evil or demonic presence was invading parts of the United States where the counting was taking place. I could feel this demonic cloud impinging on me making it hard to breathe. This was about 1:30 am.
I then spent the rest of the night in urgent prayer in the Holy Spirit, fighting this cloud of demonic deception. I was fully awake now walking back and forth in my house, fighting this invisible evil invasion. This continued all the next day. I found out later that a number of other intercessors had had the very same experience and at the same time of a demonic invasion of deception but also lawlessness invading America.
I also found out the next morning that it was between 1:30-2:30 am that the people in the polling places had just stopped counting the ballots. And I think what the Lord was allowing me, and other intercessors. to experience firsthand the high-level demonic powers that have been at work through the media, and in the social and political structures that are opposed to the restoring of the Judeo-Christian foundations of America.
When I found out that others had been hit with the same cloud it helped me know that I was not delusional as I had feared.
I believe these evil spirits were being forced to manifest because of a great movement of the Holy Spirit taking place which we have prayed for.
Please let me know if any of the rest of you had that same awareness of evil at that time.
- There was the conditional part of the guidance that I received, which was that God’s Kingdom purposes in this election would not be thwarted by Satan if the intercessors stepped into the gap and held the doors open for the miracles to take place.
We are still in that place of standing in the gap.
I have been led to keep praying Psalm 64. But especially the following verses:
They are firming up their evil plan. They talk about setting secret traps. They asked, “Who would see them?” (7) They are plotting injustices: “We have completed a perfect plot!” A man’s inward part and heart are deep.Psalms 64:6-7 TLV
I believe our role today is to keep praying that God will so manifest His power and presence over all of America and all Americans that this “perfect plot” will be exposed and brought out into the light.
A part of this prayer work may be to pray that those who have been involved in this evil scheme will be so tormented with guilt or driven by arrogance or whatever the Lord chooses that this will be fully brought out into the light. We need to press into this intercession until we see the outcome which is suggested by the Psalm:
(8) But God will shoot them with an arrow—suddenly their wounds will appear. (9) So their tongue will be their downfall. All who see them will flee away.Psalm 64:8-9 TLV
I believe the Lord is telling us to press into all this and to not step back, but to pray for the Holy Spirit’s empowerment to stay faithfully in our places of intercession.
It seems that the Lord is indeed answering these prayers. There are many reports coming in over the internet from what I believe are reliable sources that suggest that there were all sorts of untoward things taking place suggesting massive and well-organized voter fraud. President Trump spoke of this in his short speech which you can see here: (Sorry could not find the link it was on Fox News. But not showing up in Google Search.) Here are some places to check out these reports: https://gellerreport.com/ , https://www.dailywire.com/ , https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/
We must continue to press into this battle at this point of exposing evil which seems to be at this time prevailing. So where do we go from here?
Where do We Go from Here and What is Taking Place in the Earthly and Spiritual Battle?
Today Nov. 5th it all feels like a stalemate. Actually, I am feeling completely overwhelmed with despair. That cloud of evil, like Elijah fleeing a wrathful Jezebel, forced me into a retreat into a cave. I have been in a very deep and dark place, my body aches all over, I am totally exhausted and have been crying out to God who does not seem to be there. Feels like a wilderness or dark night of the soul. This is the night of the 5th how are all the rest of you doing? Am I the only one feeling beaten back by an invisible onslaught of evil?
Two words came today, Nov. 5th that I believe present the call forward:
The first is a word from Martin Boardman – I believe Martin provides some excellent guidance and wisdom from the Lord as to how we are to pray.
From Martin Boardman – This is not a prophetic word. But it is an observation of the process of intercession, which I believe the Lord gave me on November 4, 2020, during my run.
These were the thoughts, I believe from the Lord, which I had as I prayed and ran.
- “Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity” – Samuel Rees Howells
- It is only as we come to the end of ourselves, that God works so that He alone gets the glory.
- Jesus let Lazarus die because it would bring glory to God.
- The Parashah reading for this week: Genesis 22. Abraham had to be willing to sacrifice Isaac. He had to surrender to God.
- Several times Rees Howells had to walk the intercession as failure.
- “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds” John 12:24
- The Israelites had to pass through the Red Sea in abiding faith. It is that abiding faith that is necessary to bring one through the intercession. There is victory on the other side and in the cross, there is glorious victory.
- “It will look dead in the physical until the Holy Spirit blows upon it” – You have walked through that intercession.
My (Martin Boardman) personal interpretation.
Donald Trump, and a vast majority of the evangelical church has to come to their extremity and then God will work. Jesus had to walk through Gethsemane and the cross before there was victory and that was a work of surrender.
The battle in America is not political; it is spiritual, and Donald Trump has to realize this. This is yet another opportunity for him to be humbled. He cannot win this battle, for the battle belongs to the Lord and he has to realize and acknowledge this. He has to be able to name the enemy. Pride has no place, only in surrender and humility will this battle be won.
The church (small c on purpose) needs to be humbled into recognition that the answer is Jesus and not Donald Trump.
But God will have the victory, because he always does!
My (Martin Boardman) Intercession
Right now, the church needs to be awakened. The church needs to wake up and get with the Lord’s program. That is the prayer that the Lord gave me during the POTUS call on Monday, November 3, 2020 and again during the UK Cohort the same day.
The Lord showed Rees Howells that the key to a fruitful prayer life, was to pray only the prayers that the Holy Spirit gave him. Praying for an awakening of the church is the focus the Lord is presently calling me to.
I (Brad Long) witness completely to this guidance from Martin. It was most helpful to me personally in this battle and provided insights into the very things I was encountering. Recalling what happed to Rees Howells was extremely helpful and apropos to what I know I am experiencing, and many others may be experiencing as well. And I witness to this call to pray for an awakening of the church. This takes us to the next steps that I believe Jesus is calling us to in this intercessory prayer battle.
This fit with the intercession direction that Steve, a local intercessor, and I had in the morning of November 5th.
Early in the morning before it was light, I was up the mountain at the COC in the prayer battle. I got the nudge to call Steve. The sun had just come up, so I called him. He was getting ready to drive into work but said he would drop by the COC and meet me in the Prayer House. I believe the Lord spoke to us.
First, we were being led to pray through the prayer guide that I had sent out which included a picture of President Trump and the First Lady kneeling at the Shrine of Pope John Paul the II, at the altar of the Lamb of God.
As I was praying into this image of the President of the United States in a posture of humility before God, there are several words of guidance that I felt the Lord giving which may just have been my opinions, but I submit to you for your discernment.
First, I believe that this dark cloud of deception which is invading the nation is taking place because President Trump has submitted to the Lord. This is in sharp contrast to the movements of Marxism and Liberalism embodied in the various movements and political parties in the Land today which have attempted to dethrone God.
This action by the President and First Lady (and it is significant that they did this submission as a married couple) is, I believe, being used by God to keep open the door open for a movement of the Holy Spirit to restore the Judeo-Christian foundations of America’s common grace structures of government and society through which God exercises His sovereign providential rule.
This is a bulwark against all those movements which seek to replace God’s rule. This is why all the forces of hell are coming against this President and the movement he embodies.
As Steve and I were praying through this, the guidance came that we were to pray that President Trump would not stop kneeling with both knees in submission to the Sovereign Lord God. That he would not give in to the temptation to, which surely must be overwhelming to him at this point, to depose God.
I think Martin named it exactly – the prayer for us is for Trump to understand:
“The battle in America is not political it is spiritual, and Donald Trump has to realize this. This is yet another opportunity for him to be humbled. He cannot win this battle, for the battle belongs to the Lord and he has to realize and acknowledge this. He has to be able to name the enemy. Pride has no place, only in surrender and humility will this battle be won.”
Amen!!! Let us pray into this for the President and the First Lady.
The Second Word which came from Steve Aceto is consistent with a word from Tzofiya Rogers. – Which Connects to Martin’s Guidance “Praying for an awakening of the church”
Steve said the morning of the 5th that even in the pits of despair when this evil cloud of deception seems to be prevailing, and even before the battle is over, while the outcome is still undecided, we are to start praying into the new thing that God is already planning – which we believe will be an extraordinary global outpouring of the Holy Spirit which will fulfill the Great Commission in this next decade.
We need to start praying into these Kingdom plans NOW! The reason is given by Steve which I witness to:
The word from Steve which I witness to is that as Satan’s plots are exposed and stuff is brought down, and their tongue is their downfall, there will be a vacuum, that if it is not filled with God’s plans it will make for something even worse.
I am not sure what all this means politically and practically for the United States and the nations, however, the great words of Patrick Henry’s were,
“…Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave…”
So, the call upon us now before everything is settled is to start praying the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Church for restoring biblical faith and being empowered to witness to Jesus Christ to the whole earth. This means fulfilling Acts 1:4-8 for the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the next decade.
I was wrestling with this word, yesterday morning we met with some messianic leaders from Tikkun America. Tzofiya Rogers brought a prophetic word to the group. As we prayed together, she received the word “reorientation for new opportunity.” This word spoke to me and connected with what Steve and I had been praying. I shared that with the group. In her word, I hear the Lord is moving everything in a reorientation and moving us in a reorientation, to give us a new opportunity for the next stage of harvest.
We all witnessed to this word!
Now I believe we need to pray into all this!
- Continue with the prayer that plots will be exposed, and evil brought down.
- That Trump will die to his vision and therefore it may be restored to him. (this may include intercessors too.)
- Praying for resisting Satan’s movements to “dethrone” God in all sides and all movements.
- Start reorientation toward the Kingdom plans of God to fulfill the Great Commission NOW, even while we are still in this battle
Then it will be through a synergy of these actions— ours and God’s that the rest of the Psalm will take place:
Then all men will fear. So they will declare the work of God, and ponder what He has done. (11) The righteous will be glad in Adonai and take refuge in Him. Let all the upright in heart give glory!Psalms 64:10-11 TLV
Now I know this is a lot. But I want to bring you into the flow of intercession and the battle that has been taking place. It is important to bring you up to date with what I am hearing. Please urgently get back to us about the guidance you received.
Brad and Martin
