I just received an important intelligence update that confirms what I was already sensing. This is a critical time for us to be praying into the evolving situation in the Middle East. It is urgent that this go out today and that we intercessors be praying into the following prayer points:
- Pray for strong protection, the Holy Spirit’s anointing, and the authority of Jesus for Andrew and Norine Brunson as they are speaking prophetic words to a global and national audience and to the leaders of the nations. Pray that the Lord open ears for all to hear and then to be unimpeded in acting upon them.
The Dream Has Happened’: Pastor Brunson’s Prophetic Dream Reveals Chilling Truth of Turkish Invasion https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/israel/2019/october/the-dream-has-happened-pastor-brunsons-prophetic-dream-reveals-chilling-truth-behind-turkeys-syria-invasion
JERUSALEM, Israel – As the Turkish military pushes deeper into northeast Syria forcing thousands to flee for their lives, US Pastor Andrew Brunson is revealing a chilling prophetic dream he had while he was falsely imprisoned in Turkey for two years.
“The dream has happened,” he told Fox News. “My goal is about declaring who Jesus is and not getting involved in politics, but this is the dream God gave me, and I think it’s relevant to what’s happening now.”
While sitting in a Turkish prison cell in December 2016, Brunson said he dreamt of an evil pact brewing in the Middle East.
“In the dream, Turkey, Iran, and Russia began to move together in a very dark alliance,” he explained.
Brunson woke up from the dream drenched in sweat and barely able to speak. At the time, Turkey and Iran had been enemies for years, so he knew something drastic was about to happen.
Several days after Brunson had his dream, a Turkish police officer assassinated the Russian ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov while he was speaking in Ankara. But instead of sparking hostility between Russia and Turkey, Brunson said it seemed to bring the two countries together. He believes the alliance has been growing stronger ever since.
When Brunson shared his dream with the American consul and a high State Department official, they dismissed his concerns.
“That’s impossible because it’s in Turkey’s interest to be aligned with the West,” he says the State Department official told him. Brunson replied, “Well, that may be true and this is what God showed me and what can I say?”
Now, with Erdogan’s brutal invasion of northeast Syria, deliberate targeting of civilian areas, and vow to wipe out the Kurds, Brunson believes his dream is more relevant than ever before.
“The dream has happened,” he said. “Turkey is moving away from its Western alliances and moving in the opposite direction.”
“We are deeply concerned about this… Obviously we want peace in the region,” he said.
While it is easy to fall into despair, Brunson believes God also told him something else: There will be a spiritual revival in Turkey.
“I believe my imprisonment was prepping for harvest with all this prayer coming,” he said. “Our desire is that there will be a great move of God, and we believe it is coming. I also think the difficulties in the country right now will lead many to question things they’ve never questioned and many will begin to turn to Jesus.“
A personal note from Brad: A few weeks ago I meet with Andrew and Norine at the Community of the Cross, and they told me the wonderful news that there does seem to be a movement of the Holy Spirit taking place in some areas of Turkey with many people making professions of faith. The harvest is coming and is already beginning! But it must be protected and nurtured through persistent persevering prayer.
- Pray that God will use Andrew’s prophetic dream to accomplish His holy purposes of defeating evil and advancing the Kingdom of God.
- Pray for piercing of the demonic cloaking hiding this “very dark alliance between Turkey, Iran, and Russia” revealed in Andrew’s dream.
- I believe the Lord may be calling us to command that Satan’s empire of evil and the archons forming this “dark alliance” in the heavenlies will be divided. (Do not on your own. Let’s discern this guidance and then set a time to do this prayer as a cohort. Send us a note if you are willing to join in that prayer of commanding together.)
I have been struggling with what is going on with President Trump pulling out US troops from Syria against the advice of nearly everyone, leaving our staunch allies in the fight against Islamic Jihad, the Kurds, unprotected. This seems to me like the height of folly, a colossal mistake like Obama’s in pulling out of Iraq which opened the doors to the rise of ISIS. And now the invasion into Syria by Turkey. What is going on in the spiritual realm? What is the Lord calling us to pray?
Here is another prophetic word, this time from Chris Haynes in the Czech Republic:
The Betrayal of the Kurds in Syria
I understand why Trump wants to pull the troops out of Syria. He wants to try to create a new narrative (just as Obama did in moving towards re-election) that he ended the wars in the Middle East. The Kurds in Syria and Iraq have been among America’s staunches allies in fighting against Radical Islam and Jihadism. They have also been tolerant and protecting of Christians. I fear that if the policy is not changed, and Turkey is allowed to wipe out the Kurds in Syria, it will have ramifications far beyond the Middle East. Some intelligence experts in Israel are concerned. If Trump will turn on the Kurds who are as staunchly pro-American as Israel, could he also at some point drop Israel if they became politically problematic? The betrayal of the Kurds may lead to the creation of the next bin Laden with greater horror than 9/11 in store. But, there is still time to stop this. We need to pray.
Further, there is a move of the Holy Spirit taking place among Kurds bringing many to faith in Jesus Christ.
(Here is an opinion from the Jerusalem Post confirming the terrible consequences of this action: AFTER TRUMP ABANDONS KURDS, ISRAEL KNOWS IT CAN’T RELY ON ANYONE

Trump’s decision must also be seen within the context of the Iranian-backed attacks last month on the Saudi oil facilities, and the deafening lack of an American response.
This is all happening with both President Trump in the USA and Prime Minister Boris Johnston in the UK deeply distracted by attacks against them. (As a sobering note, it was during the distractions of the impeachment proceedings against then President Clinton that Al-Qaeda grew.) And the political situation in Israel is still in chaos with as I understand Netanyahu still trying to form a government.
- We must pray that key leaders will be awake, on task, and not deceived. And pray that the devil will not be able to work under cover of this confusion.
A third word, received from an intercessor in Canada:
Impending war against Israel
On October 3, I received a word and an insight regarding the Iranian perspective on the coming war. The word was: “The people of Iran are apprehensive about this war.” The subsequent insight was: Iran will not care about the people of Israel, but Israel will care about the people of Iran. This huge difference in perspective exists because one side, namely the present Iranian leadership, is under powerful demonic influence/control, while the other, Israel, is not. Therefore, the latter will not intentionally seek out civilian targets, while Iran will be happy to do so. Human life is cheap to the enemy.
Secondly, on Oct. 4, I received a word that God will “restore calm to Israel soon.” I understood this to mean political calm. At around the same time that day, a word was received about “Soros’s money going to Israel.” Indeed, he would do such a thing. We can pray that it will be blocked.
On the 5th of this month, four war-type words were given, three of which related to great trials and suffering. We should be aware that the coming war will be big and costly and may involve several countries, or even more, before it is all over. It is, however, absolutely necessary, or Israel will be unable to proceed to its next God-appointed place. The world is going to hate it, because oil and trade will be disrupted for a season.
I have substantially increased my prayers for the three main “God-areas” of the moment—namely Israel and its foes, the UK and Brexit, and the great battle around President Trump. I believe God intends to act mightily in each area, but we need to keep praying and not give up.
- Pray for God’s protection of Isral and all who stand with and join in the defense of Israel and the Jewish people. And we pray that those who would destroy them would be converted to biblical faith in Yeshua/Jesus or themselves be destroyed. (Some passages of Scripture that may be important to pray into or to seek guidance from Psalm 2 and 54, Ezekiel 38:1-6, Isaiah 17:1-3)
- Pray for the continued movement of the Holy Spirit bringing people to faith and advancing the Kingdom of God among the Kurds, the people of Iran, and in Turkey.
- Be led by the Holy Spirit!
There is more guidance coming in. We will be sending this to you as soon as it has been discerned. However, as stated above, this urgent call to prayer is going out to you “as is” because I have just been notified of events in the heavenlies and on earth that must be prayed into according to the guidance we had already received. Thanks! And everyone please join in this prayer work Send guidance to us as all this is moving forward.
