Call Tonight! Announcing "By My Spirit" Prayer Watch

CALL TONIGHT! 9pm est. On the eve of the National Day of Prayer, we will be praying together for our Nation. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! NOT BY MIGHT NOR POWER, BUT… BY MY SPIRIT, SAYS THE LORD! Remember that tomorrow is the National Day of Prayer. I’m excited to say that, from the halls of Congress to churches across our land, our nation will be erupting with intercession for America! Lets declare together, NO KING BUT JESUS. Further, lets release Holy Spirit to move in power! Lets declare that HOLY SPIRIT IS THE SPIRITUAL UNDERCURRENT AND OVERARCHING INFLUENCE IN OUR LAND. ‘By My Spirit’ Prayer Watch I feel strongly the Lord desires us to launch into a new prayer project tonight. From tomorrow, May 1 and the National Day of Prayer, through Pentecost this June 4, lets press in fully to what God has for this season. Since returning from Sierra Leone, I have been hearing the simple instruction of the Lord being emphasized again and again. Neither our politics, our fortunes, nor our military might can cause us to prevail through this hour of peril. It’s “‘By My Spirit,’” says the Lord. Interestingly those were among the first words out of Jolene’s mouth when I asked her what the Lord has been showing her the...

Holocaust Remembrance Day—Israel an "Apartheid State?"

Lamplighter Family—please continue praying for friends across the nation facing severe storms today. Storms, dissipate in Jesus’ Name! Please continue praying for those devastated by tornadoes in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Iowa and other parts of the nation. Call Wednesday, 9pm est. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! An Apartheid State? As the international “Holocaust Remembrance Day” concludes this evening, news is breaking that Secretary of State John Kerry warned about Israel becoming “an apartheid state” if a peace deal with the Palestinians is not secured. Sec. Kerry made the comment during the Trilateral Commission’s annual meeting, held this year in Washington DC Friday through today. According to the Daily Beast, who obtained an audio recording, “Senior American officials have rarely, if ever, used the term “apartheid” in reference to Israel, and President Obama has previously rejected the idea that the word should apply to the Jewish state. Kerry’s use of the loaded term is already rankling Jewish leaders in America—and it could attract unwanted attention in Israel, as well.” Israel on the Trading Floor I find it extremely interesting that the Lord quickened to me last Wednesday that “Israel is (now) on the trading floor of the nations.” Later that day, news broke of a new Palestinian unity government between Fatah and Hamas. Later in the week, Kerry addressed...

Blood Moon at Passover—What Does This Mean?

What is God saying through the blood moon on Passover? Is it a sign of a war involving Israel, or even the end of days? Headlines bear witness that we are in a tenuous and volatile hour. In the next two postings I want to share a few key insights the Spirit of God highlighted over Passover 2014. Though much of this was shared in and for Sierra Leone, I am including here primarily what pertains to the broader body of Christ. Lets begin with Passover, and the blood moon. Blood Moon Teachings Most of the apocalyptic assumptions about the blood moon have been stirred by popular teachings by Pastor John Hagee and Rabbi Mark Biltz. They showed apparent correlations between blood moons and dramatic historical events tied to Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Pretty amazing that a blood moon appeared in 1949, around the time Israel was reborn as a nation in 1948. And that another blood moon appeared in 1967, the year Jerusalem was recovered as the capital of Israel after the Six Day War. And it’s interesting that today, within a week or so of the blood moon at Passover, rival Palestinian factions have united, provoking Israel to call off 20 years worth of peace negotiations. Things that make you go hmmmm… April 29: The Sun Will Be Darkened… I want to bypass all...

Right: Pastor Pitts Evans administers vision test while distributing eyeglasses. Note: more photos of Sierra Leone on Jon’s Facebook page Thanks to all who joined last night’s call. Before praying over current events, we shared a few insights about God’s amazing work in Sierra Leone, Africa. Your prayers paved a way for the word of the Lord to “run swiftly and be glorified” (II Thessalonians 3). So grateful for your intercession, and your enthusiasm to hear about God’s incredible work. Snapshot of Sierra Leone Words cannot describe the physical beauty of Sierra Leone, with mountains cascading into the Atlantic, white sand beaches shaded by palms, and rivers converging to form one of the world’s largest natural harbors. The beauty of the land is only bested by the grace of the people. Many have lived through unspeakable challenges brought on by war. Poverty is everywhere. The specter of disease is an unspoken constant. But absent from the lips and hearts of my new friends is the plague that paralyzes so many in our own nation. Self-pity was simply nowhere to be found! And I sure did not want them to catch this disease from me. Our host and friend Sidikie Kamara has started 37 churches in addition to Prayer Tabernacle,...

Call Tonight! Israel on the Trading Floor

CALL TONIGHT! 9pm est. We will be praying for DC, America and Israel. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! First—what a breakthrough in Africa! Wouldn’t have made it through without your prayers. And because of your intercession, almost an entire nation received the word of the Lord this Passover! So amazing. I am in process of writing the highlights, and hope to have them in your inbox by week’s end. In the meantime, I would love to share a few ‘glory stories’ with you on tonight’s call. Second—many intercessors have recently been alerted by Holy Spirit to pray intensively for President Obama. Yesterday the President embarked on a very strategic trip to Asia—Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. Between the open hostility of North Korea, the increasing aggression of China, and continued tension with Russia, it’s a volatile time there. Palestinian Unity Government Announced But the most vital need for prayer might still be in the Mideast. Breaking news—Palestinians just announced a deal has been reached on a new unity government. The Palestinian Authority, which controls the West Bank, joined with Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, to form this coalition following the breakdown of US-brokered peace talks. It’s worth noting that the United States classifies Hamas as an Islamist terrorist organization, while Russia and China do...
