DAY 16: Blacks not Citizens? Unborn Babies not Human? Breaking Through the History Line

MATT LOCKETT of Bound4Life joins us for TONIGHT’S prayer call! 9-10 pm EST. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! BAD LAW can be overturned, as Matt Lockett is quick to point out. Even if it’s a historical precedent. As we move forward in this “New Birth of Freedom,” we are giving our all for a grassroots movement that shifts both culture and government. That breaks through what one intercessor termed, “the history line.” What is a History Line? First, some background. For this entire project, Jolene and I have been honored to host a vigil from midnight-3am with Matt Lockett and a few team members. Some Bound4Life intercessors across the nation have also been keeping this vigil. And last night, Matt was sharing how the Lord spoke to Florida team member Natalie Farber about history lines. “It’s a word I heard Him impress on me of what we are breaking,” according to Natalie. “History lines are a PATTERN that history makes, that GENERATIONS KEEP FOLLOWING.” At first she thought this meant re-writing history or defining new lines. But the Lord showed her the line is already set in place, and by God’s grace we are together breaking them. “Think of it like a generational curse that keeps getting passed down, or a pattern people can’t break,” according to...

Day 15: Council of God! Randy Demain on 2013

MATT LOCKETT OF BOUND4LIFE joins us for Wednesday prayer call! 9-10 pm EST. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! Jolene and I are always eager to receive Randy Demain’s prophetic insights for the year. We are honored to consider Randy a mentor and a friend. Through the years, many of his prophetic themes have run parallel to ours. But this year, the trend is exceptional, confirming so many things. This word, just posted on Randy’s website, is worth a thorough reading. Lamplighter family, please note the emphasis on the pilgrim covenant, the lampstand, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil War and Revolution. These current themes will be so significant as the year unfolds. Best of all, Sarah’s womb gives birth! I know, you’re probably tired of hearing it… but we really are in a new birth of freedom. YEAR OF THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD Turning Sorrows into Joy! “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever”  (Psalm 30:11-12). This year will begin to see spiritual and natural change for the better in the lives of many believers. It is a time of...

Day 14: The Travail of Justice

Your Verdict is Freedom! MATT LOCKETT OF BOUND4LIFE joins us for Wednesday prayer call! 9-10 pm EST. Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends to join us! SO GLAD WE ARE PRAYING as we start the weeklong countdown to President Obama’s inauguration–on Martin Luther King Day–followed by the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. Echoing in my heart and spirit right now is King’s thundering declaration of Amos 5:24, “Let justice roll down like a river, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream!” We have entered into a travail of justice, and this year more than ever I am confident of God’s response. His verdict is freedom–a new birth of freedom. Dark Legacy–1:22 In Exodus 1:22, Pharaoh commanded all male Israelite infants be drowned in the Nile River. It is hauntingly prophetic that the Supreme Court verdict on abortion was handed down on 1-22-1973. Is this merely coincidence? Or is the Lord prophesying even through the date how He identifies this abortion ruling as a perpetuation of Pharaoh’s cruel hand? And is there a time when God will render judgment? Note that Moses was born right around the time Pharaoh was stretching forth his hand to kill the firstborn males. As noted before, God often confronts the greatest evil with the travail of a new birth! Makes me wonder about the Moses seed in...

Day 13: Between Moses & Pharaoh–Praying for President Obama

Breaking–beloved Gwen Shaw, founder of End-Time Handmaidens, passed on this afternoon to be with the Lord. Someone noted how the political figures I most prayed for throughout 2012–Barack Obama and Michele Bachmann–both won their elections. It’s been a running joke how very few Americans actually have this bragging right… I still pray regularly for them both. And I truly believe in their greatness as leaders. As President Obama’s inauguration draws near, I want to take a break from the clash of current ideologies and view his legacy from a different vantage point–including a prophetic perspective. Below are a few things I really like about our president, that inspire me to pray for him. Legitimizing Fathering & Family Most who know the president personally are taken by his affectionate devotion to his wife and children. My guess is that when many see the Obamas, they don’t first think of economic policies or homeland security issues. They first see a family walking out the relational aspirations we all long for–success in family and life. We live in an era where at least 1/3 of American children across the spectrum are fatherless, and almost 3/4 of black children are born to unwed mothers. To have a dad–that was the tenth most popular request to Santa this year! Perhaps the greatest contribution President Obama has made to American culture is to prove, by...

Day 12: Principles of Heaven's Court

First–grateful that many of you who were encouraged by yesterday’s posting on the council of God. Thanks for sharing your heart! As we mentioned before, we strongly sense that the Lord is rendering His verdict in this season, even regarding our nation. It’s why it is so important to access and receive God’s “Throne Room counsel.” Judicial intercession both begins and culminates in Jesus Christ. Today we want to equip you with a few keys to help you gain His verdict in your favor. This understanding is crucial for national breakthrough—but also your own! The insights below were originally posted in January, 2011. Principles of Heaven’s Court For the past few years, Jolene and I have been on an unexpected “Holy Spirit learning curve” on intercession and the Court of Heaven. As we’ve gained even a small measure of understanding, we have come to perceive Holy Spirit’s leading much better, and we have received more significant results with less delay. For years the body of Christ has been focused on “coming boldly before God’s Throne” to encounter Him. It’s important to understand that the Throne of God’s beauty is also the Court of His justice. And how you “approach the bench” here on earth is a shadow of how to receive His verdict. Justice: The Big Picture Much of what the body of Christ is taught about accessing Heaven’s...
