We intercede with the intent to participate in the Lord’s overall plans of defeating Satan and advancing the Kingdom of God.
These are battles beyond global borders and nation states. We’ve shared prayer strategies for Turkey, Korea, Iran, and other places.
In this issue, let’s join together to pray for an issue in the United States, currently in the process of nominating a Supreme Court justice.
I’d like to share my observations and prayer strategies.
For our prayers to hit the target, we cooperate with the Holy Spirit. We ask him to reveal a war front, and a specific area of the front, which is the most critical at a particular time.
One of Satan’s current strategies is to destroy the Judeo-Christian values that form the bedrock of the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States.
The war front belonging to this strategy is in the news.
A point of strategic focus being highlighted at this time is the confirmation hearings of President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh.
What is Taking Place in the Human and Spiritual Realms?
I am writing this on September 8th, 2018. I have been watching the confirmation hearings broadcast from the chambers of the Capital Complex, specifically room 216 in the Hart Senate Office Building. Asking questions of the nominee is a very healthy part of the process.
But I am deeply disturbed by the tactics of the demonstrators. They are clearly intended to disrupt the democratic process in which views and counter-views are expressed.
I do not find protesters screaming from the gallery to be, as one senator expressed it, “democracy in action.”
Rather this seems to be an orchestrated attempt by the Radical Left to destroy the democratic process and our democratic institutions.
A USA Today article published September 5th, 2018, names organizations behind the protest. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/09/05/brett-kavanaugh-hearing-disruptions-testimony-coordinated-supreme-court/1201785002/
Here is a note from JuleAnn in New Jersey, confirming this impression.
“I’m so relieved you’re releasing this call to prayer. Numerous times over the last 2 weeks the LORD has called me into intercession over this “process” which has been abused and used for many trying to start trouble and/or push their own agendas by grandstanding. I have been greatly concerned about our international appearance (not fear of man) when or if this behavior is exposed to the world—I’m embarrassed. It’s as if those even in government don’t even understand the roles and duties of the three branches of government. This is all on a human level; however, yesterday after the Cori Booker debacle (I’m embarrassed he’s from NJ) I believe I heard clearly from the LORD “there is a strategic orchestrated plan set in an attempt to disrupt this nomination.” It was obvious the form of tactics that are being used of anarchy. I agree it feels similar to Charlottesville.”
Kim in New York affirmed JuleAnn’s comment about the reaction of the radical left.
“I believe what we are watching is a slow train wreck into lawlessness. Opponents enrage each other over perceived lapses in social standards. Talking heads and ephemeral leaders intimidate and foment violence. Mob rule and even assassination are being hinted at by some.”
I’d like to call your attention to another and frankly more ominous dimension of these supposed protests by concerned citizens.
Some eyewitnesses of the nomination proceedings have reported seeing protestors being paid to disrupt the hearings. Here is a report that seems credible. Staged? Kavanaugh Protesters Seen Being Paid Cash, Say 3 Separate Doctors
I have received verification of the payments from a journalist friend in Washington, DC, who is gifted in discernment. He has been on site at the nomination proceedings and has uncovered evidence through the Internet.
He sent me the following note:
“Every few minutes the hearings are interrupted by some shrill insane protestor, who is subsequently dragged out of the hearing room and arrested. This goes on all day. It is truly disgraceful.
Rumor is that these protestors are paid. Today on Twitter I found pictures of a person shoveling cash out of an envelope to a woman who had been kicked out. I was able to find out who he is. He is employed by a far-left activist group funded by George Soros. Soros is behind much of the turmoil in this country. He is trying to destroy our institutions.”
The journalist asks for prayer that he gets the full verification of all this and that it can be exposed to the American Public.
Another deeply disturbing aspect of this process is the role of a few members of the Democratic party. They are taking part in what some have alleged is an orchestrated attempt to disrupt and to derail reasonable debate and discourse necessary for our democratic processes to function.
Dangers of the Marxist/Hegelian Dialectic
Some may scoff at the idea that a few paid protesters disrupting a hearing could be a matter of national concern. But to me it is deeply disturbing and alarming.
I believe it is evidence of a strategy of Satan named the “Marxist/Hegelian dialectic.” The strategy is to sow conflict that can lead to anarchy. Its intention is the disruption of orderly functioning of the democratic process.
The process drives a nation’s political and economic system toward break down. Conflict is meant to cause democratic government to fail and cease to function. The resulting anarchy creates ideal conditions for imposing some form of tyranny.
We saw this same dynamic working through the protest and counter-protest in Charlottesville in 2017. The dynamic also surfaced recently in Portland. (See Organized anarchy may soon erupt in Portland, a Discerning the Times article.)
The history of the Communist revolutions in Russia and China, as well as the Nazi takeover of Germany, exposes the grave dangers to a nation and to humanity if this dynamic is allowed to grow unchecked.
The United States Capital is the symbol and context of representative democratic government. Besides the political and social implications, the intentional creation of anarchy within the chambers of the Capital Complex signal a move of Satan.
Intentional acts of anarchy within the Capital serve as evocations of high-level demonic spirits of Lawlessness and the Antichrist. (2 Thessalonians 2:7, and 1 John 4:3)
Once high-level demons are welcomed in, they intensify the power of evil and usher in other demons.
The lower-level demons then work through deceived human beings to build a demonic stronghold that will advance Satan’s purposes on earth.
I believe the Lord is calling us to step into the gap as intercessors to prevent Satan from meeting his objectives in this planned, and in some cases paid for, anarchy.
Here is the guidance I have received:
- Pray for exposure of what Satan is doing through his demonic and human agents during the confirmation hearings.
- Pray for those on site who discern spirits, tell the truth, and intercede – like the three doctors from Texas and my journalist friend, and no doubt many others.
- Ask the Lord to form those of us who are not on-site into groups who can together discern and pray. Our scope will be the spiritual realm intersecting with the geographic location of the hearings at the Capital. Pray for discernment and guidance to follow the Holy Spirit’s promptings which may include the following:
- Binding and expelling the demons who have been invited into the Chambers of Congress.
- For God the Father to use what Satan and his human agents have intended for evil to advance his Kingdom plans.
Missy in South Carolina received the following guidance on July 1st, 2018, which is relevant now.
“He kept telling me to pray for His love to flood the floor of the Senate so that as folks left they would know that they had been in the presence of God Almighty.
It was similar to the scene where after Elijah’s showdown with the prophets of Baal the people’s response was, ‘The Lord, he is God. ‘ I felt led to pray that the world would see this and know that there is a God.
Next, my prayer began to focus on those in the Senate who loved Jesus but had been deluded by false ideology that God open their eyes and that they would stand up for Jesus on the floor of the Senate.”
If you feel the Lord calling you to focused prayer for this situation, please let Martin know as he will be coordinating groups who can discern and pray together. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send any guidance or prayer experiences that you have to Martin and to me and we will be discerning them and passing them on to you.
