Aug 31: East Coast Prayer Movement, Israel, adn Isaiah 19

AUG 31: East Coast Prayer Movement, Israel, and Isaiah 19 Jon & Jolene are making their first trip to Israel this September! Thanks to the generosity of so many, we need only $600 more to finance the trip. Please consider a donation today. We are grateful! Yesterday we shared two prophetic experiences related to the emergence of a prayer movement that is international in scope yet has a unique identity within the east coast. In 2000, while in Colorado Springs CO, The Lord gave me a prophetic experience related to this. I saw a vision of three fighter jets taking off, representing three prayer movements. The last jet took off from the mid-atlantic region, and I knew The Lord was both prophesying and asking me to stand for an east coast prayer movement that had yet to fully be birthed. I believe this movement is being birthed in this season. These jets—representing three prayer movements—converged and entered into military formation over New England, and shot across the Atlantic to fight on behalf of Israel. From this experience, I knew that a very perilous day for Israel would soon be at hand. And The Lord deeply desired for our nation’s respective prayer movements to be a strength to His covenant land and people, fighting for the life and dream He has for her and for the region. And for the...

Aug 30: Crown & Throne—Two Prophetic Experiences

THANK YOU all who are praying for us! We are making a brief stop at the International House of Prayer in KC before journeying down to Dallas TX for a Reformation Prayer Network gathering and Global Spheres meeting. It is always a delight to connect with friends again across the spectrum of the prayer movement. In this season, we are contending together for the birthing of a new move of the Spirit. We will be sharing vital revelation on this Crown and Throne movement this September with dear friends at Rock Road Chapel in Berne NY. Please make plans to join us if you can! Today I want to share with you a few foundational prophetic expressions for your own faith to be ignited. Please note that though the east coast is highlighted, I fully believe this emerging movement is national—and even international. Further, as you will see, many of you have been involved in forerunning this movement already! East Coast Prayer Movement—Vision of Three Fighter Jets I was living in Colorado Springs when I received this vision, working for Mike and Cindy Jacobs. At the time, their headquarters were there, in the same complex as the church Dutch Sheets pastored. Chuck Pierce and Peter Wagner were across town, operating Global Harvest Ministries out of the World Prayer Center. Chuck, the Jacobs, and Dutch have all moved to the...

Aug 28: Crown & Throne—He Brings Down Rulers

At the beginning of our Line in the Sand prayer project, the Spirit of God impressed upon Jolene the need to watch and pray from August 21 through September 15. We had just begun the project—compelled by a strong word given by James Goll that the Lord is drawing a line in the sand regarding the sanctity of the covenant boundaries of Israel, and the sanctity of the covenant boundaries of marriage. In both cases, mankind’s Creator and Savior has every right to define these boundaries—the commanded blessing for honoring them, and the consequences for violating them. When we started this watch, the Mideast peace process had just been restarted under the leadership of Sec. of State John Kerry. News outlets reported a focus on persuading Israel to return to the pre-1967 boundaries, as well as annexing East Jerusalem. It is stunning to me that on August 27, the day before our watch transitioned, the Palestinians announced they had decided to pull out of the peace process. We transitioned into this Crown and Throne watch yesterday with an earnest expectation that, in the midst of national and global challenges, God is birthing a new move of His Spirit. Thanks to all who prayed for us last night as we had the honor of casting vision for this new move with Apostle John Benefiel in Oklahoma City! He Brings Down...

August 28: I Have a Dream! New Birth of Freedom

NOTE: NO CONFERENCE CALL WEDNESDAY. Jon & Jolene ministering Wednesday at Church on the Rock, Oklahoma City. As of today, we begin the Crown and Throne Prayer Project! Thank you for joining in our 21 day “Line in the Sand Prayer Project.” With Holy Spirit’s call to Jolene to pray through September 15, we feel the watch must continue. And there’s no better day to commence this project than the anniversary of a moment in time where the word of a King set a new course for America’s history. I Have a Dream In the prophetic and prayer movements, declaring God’s heart and seeing His word established is a primary goal. But before Kenneth Hagin taught on faith, before Cindy Jacobs and Dutch Sheets taught on prophetic declaration, Martin Luther King absolutely modeled this principle. He declared God’s word—unabashedly moving from his prepared text to declare what the Holy Spirit was spontaneously speaking to him—and all America soon resounded and responded to this dream. From the text: “I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that...

Aug. 27: Shields Up! A Line in the Sand has been Crossed

NOTE: NO CONFERENCE CALL WEDNESDAY. Jon & Jolene ministering Wednesday at Church on the Rock, Oklahoma City Friends, we are now on a world war watch! Syria’s rogue dictator Assad is apparently responsible for the mass extermination of his own citizens. More than a thousand men, women and children have now died from the deployment of military-grade chemical warfare. Both sides of the Syrian civil war are accusing each other of this travesty. Assad originally manufactured these chemicals specifically for use against Israel—for the extermination of the Jews in God’s covenant land. Whichever side is telling the truth, the sobering reality is that both sides ultimately desire to unleash this kind of destruction against Israel. Line in the Sand & World War Watch For more than a decade, prophetic statesman James Goll has been warning of these weapons of mass destruction in Syria. On our conference call a few months ago, James shared how God spoke to him that when the world is focused on Iran’s nuclear capacities, the immediate danger will actually be Syria’s chemical weapons. Today’s headlines certainly bear witness to this reality. As James admonished us, Shields up! Earlier this summer, The Lord highlighted to Jolene the time period between 8-21 and 9-15 to watch and pray intensively. We were reminded of a similar watch last year during this time, motivated by the Holy Spirit speaking...
