ISRAEL’S TURNAROUND—HEAVEN’S VERDICT
”Against all odds, a great victory for the Likud, for the nationalist camp led by the Likud, and for the people of Israel”—Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, 10:45 pm Tuesday, Israel time.
Today marks a week since Israel’s “turnaround” elections. Following our flight from Tel Aviv, we enjoyed glory-filled weekend in Syracuse NY. I really felt it was significant we ministered in New York on Purim just before traveling to Israel, and then ministered again in New York immediately afterwards.
Last night we finally made it home to Washington DC—just in time with our home group! Amidst hugs and enthusiastic chatter, I became aware of something that really needs to be clarified.
Israel’s Turnaround—Heaven’s Verdict
Israel’s election results were quite frankly astounding. But I want to make it clear that Israel did not turn just because Jon and Jolene prophesied and prayed, nor because anyone else prophesied and prayed. As with the American elections in 2014, Jolene and I believe that Israel’s elections actually turned because God rendered His verdict in favor of the saints.
The Lord was offering Israel a turnaround, just as He offered America a turnaround that impacted the 2014 elections. Chuck Pierce, who was with us for the 7-22 gathering at Faneuil Hall, was very quick to perceive and share this window of opportunity as it unfolded. Rick Ridings received a similar word. And prophesying this Daniel 7:22 verdict in Jerusalem alongside Chuck and Rick, and then sharing at Succat Hallel the night before Israel’s elections, instantly became highlights of our ministry career.
But again, we all simply announced the Daniel 7:22 verdict that the God of Israel granted towards a turnaround. Covenantally and governmentally, judgement was being granted in favor of the saints and against the demonic hierarchy that had restrained the saints. Further, according to Psalm 125:3, the scepter of the wicked must no longer remain on the land allotted to the righteous!
Friends, bringing clarity to this issue is so important. First, so that the God of Israel receives the glory due His Name! Second, so that we together can better grasp the process that led to unprecedented election turnarounds in both Israel and America. Because if you can grasp the process, you can authentically access this same grace from God’s Throne to see a turnaround in your own life. His verdict is available for you!
Accessing Windows of Opportunity
When we began our Turnaround Project January 4, the Lord spoke to us on Throne Room timing. That for 2015, windows were more important than doors. He was granting windows of opportunity for Kingdom advancement, and if we were not aligned with His timing we could go through the right doors at the wrong time and miss our opportunities.
We knew we didn’t want to miss! So we cleared our schedule, sought Him for Throne Room alignment and synergy, and focused on the windows of opportunity He was giving.
Not long after, the Lord really stretched our faith by asking us to extend the Turnaround Project until March 4. The date happened to be my birthday, and I was really wrestling as to whether this was authentically Jesus or just a self-focused idea.
We didn’t know then that March 4 was Purim. And we didn’t know then that Israeli PM Netanyahu was going to defy all opposition by addressing a joint session of Congress on March 3, Purim eve. And that the whole story of Purim would play out again on the world stage!
I’m so glad my friend Sharla Mylar came to our home group with a word from the Lord. She personally had been called to fast and pray till March 4, and she felt led to affirm us to do the same. That’s when I discovered that March 4 was actually Purim. And the stand the Lord called us to suddenly became very personal.
Not long after, our friend Linda Wyatt invited us to join her in Israel for 10 days. We felt an immediate witness. Jolene and purchased our tickets late on February 9 to travel to Jerusalem from March 8-18. I liked “8-18” Because of Deuteronomy 8:18, which conveys how God gives wealth to establish the covenant He swore to our forefathers!
So the timing really felt right. Little did we know how extraordinary the window of opportunity was going to be.
“As You Stood With Me for America… Stand for Israel”
Early the next day, the Lord awakened me with a phrase. “As you have stood with Me for your elections in America, so I want you to stand with Me for My elections in My covenant land.”
Still half-asleep, I pondered the Lord’s directive, not even knowing when Israel’s elections were to occur. I was stunned to discover election day was on March 17. Because we were already scheduled to depart on March 18, the day after!
Of course, we were already praying about the Israeli elections. PM Netanyahu was getting major grief over his invitation to address a joint session of Congress on Purim eve. The Lord very clearly called us first stand in Washington DC, followed by praying in Jerusalem though election night.
But we knew there was more. His word haunted me for weeks. “As you stood with Me for your elections…” How were we to stand?
Faneuil Hall Verdict—Israel and America
One day it dawned on me just how the Lord wanted us to stand. I saw by the Spirit that in the convergence of time, legacy and destiny, the verdict the Ancient of Days granted on July 22 at Faneuil Hall was for Israel as well as for America.
Judgment in favor of the saints, with the scepter of the wicked rescinded from the land allotted to the righteous. Turnaround time!
Obviously God deals with each nation individually, and I did not in any way want to presume that our verdict was actually Israel’s verdict as well. But on the other hand, I suddenly saw the imperative this Daniel 7:22 verdict was for Israel FIRST—because in the passage, Daniel was prophesying about Israel FIRST. We just happened to be grafted into His covenant verdict!
Giving credit where credit is due, my friend Gary Beaton knew already that God’s 7:22 verdict was for America, Israel, for the body of Christ in the nations. In fact, Gary knew this when he first presented his Liberty Charter before the Throne on July 22, 2005. We had many discussions on this. And he knew that, when the Judge’s gavel fell, the course of history would literally turn.
Purim—The Original Turnaround Verdict
I began to rehearse this verdict again, first in Washington DC and then while ministering in New York over Purim. The saints were being overpowered until the Ancient of Days took His seat, and judgment was rendered in favor of the saints.
Then came a turnaround! By order of Heaven’s Court, an antichrist spirit was restrained, and God’s people were released to possess the Kingdom. We actually experienced a measure of this during the US elections. If He could do this for America, could He not do this for Israel?
Turns out, He already did. At Purim. When Esther stepped into the very vision Daniel had prayed about a generation earlier in Persia, ancient Iran.
Driven by an antichrist spirit, Haman had opposed the Jews at every turn, actually implementing a plan for a Jewish holocaust. And when Esther stood before her earthly king, Heaven’s scepter of favor was extended to release God’s verdict. A judgement was granted in favor of the saints, protecting and preserving His covenant people. Not only was the enemy restrained, but in the same moment the saints were literally released to possess the kingdom! Esther and Mordecai were promoted to rulership, and the Jews were granted the right to defend themselves across the Persian empire.
Friends, before the Lord opened my eyes, I had never seen this correlation between Daniel’s vision and Esther’s turnaround. It is so clear, they are almost one in the same!
And this revelation was all the more extraordinary as Purim had seemingly come full circle in our time. Including a Jewish intercessor pleading before Congress on Purim eve for the preservation of his people from the potential of a nuclear Iran.
You just cannot make this stuff up. Suffice to say, this infused us with incredible faith for Israel’s turnaround—even when it seemed there was no way possible.
Israel and America—Taking Back the Land
The challenges were actually overwhelming. Since the beginning, this current administration has sought to impose its will upon God’s covenant land. These actions were no more apparent than during Israel’s elections, as PM Netanyahu was publicly undermined at every turn both in Israel and in America before his historic speech.
Two key issues pressed by our administration were at stake—first the prospect of dividing the land, and secondly the nuclear deal with Iran. Allegedly, the administration had already threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if a pre-emptive strike were to be launched against Iran’s nuclear capacities. And before the elections, the President’s top campaign manager had been hired by “Victory 15,” an election campaign in Israel with the campaign slogan “Anyone but Netanyahu.”
It could be argued that “we the people” experienced much the same imposition in America. Again and again the trust of the American people had been violated. We suffered through blatant violations of Constitutional powers, with defiant threats to push these boundaries even more. While ISIS ran unchecked through Iraq, slaughtering Christians and other minorities while taking city after city our soldiers had liberated, the President seemed preoccupied. If anything, he became even more of an apologist and defender of the very religion motivating these atrocities.
In America’s turnaround, voters elected men and women resolved to put in check a very radical agenda imposed by the current administration. We resolved to take back our land. And in Israel, the voters literally voted to take back theirs.
The Turnaround Verdict
Let me close by sharing with you a few key aspects of the Turnaround Verdict the Lord compelled us to share. These are directly from the “Re-Constitution of the United States,” given at Faneuil Hall July 22, 2014. Please keep in mind the Lord emphasized that He was granting the same general verdict for Israel.
“Until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived for the saints to possess the Kingdom.” This verdict, as recorded in Daniel 7:22, issues from the Highest Court in the Kingdom of God re: the People of God, Plaintiff, to meet with justice their accumulated pleas and petitions for the Nation, and to further establish the verdicts previously granted by this Court, cited below.
In God We Trust. Based upon this Court’s review of the Nation’s foundational covenants with Jesus Christ, the original intent of the founding principals who made these covenants “in the Presence of God and one another,” and the repairing of these covenants as validated by this Court, it has been decided that the land and government were consecrated to Jesus Christ from inception, and remain in this standing today.
No King but Jesus. Covenants establish thrones of governance. The Court therefore rules that the thrones of National governance belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore at the Plaintiff’s request, all previous claims to these thrones through covenants with Death and Sheol are hereby annulled. Further, the Court affirms the separation of power in the three branches of National government as defined by the United States Constitution, and invokes the authority to enforce and defend this covenant at the Court’s discretion against all Usurpers.
The King’s Inheritance. The Court now rules according to Psalm 125:3 that the scepter of the wicked must no longer remain on the land allotted to the righteous. The scepter, or enforcement of unjust governance, must now be rescinded. Further, the Court grants the wealth of heaven and earth to establish this Covenant sworn to your forefathers by the King. The issuance of the King’s land grants and inheritances is now authorized for distribution and stewardship towards this end.
Heaven-Rescued Land. This Court now renders judgment according to Daniel 7:22 in favor of the Saints of the Highest One, and against the Usurper of God’s covenant purposes. By order of the Court, the Usurper must hereby be restrained in every realm, dimension, sphere and office in which the saints have been opposed. The saints are granted a Turning Point for National breakthrough—to possess and establish the Kingdom of Jesus Christ according to the original intents of the Nation’s founders, and their God (Acts 3:19-21).
Further, the Court grants the Plaintiff’s request that Israel, the land and people, be resourced through an enduring covenantal alliance with the repairers of our National Covenant with the Lord. Heaven and earth bear witness to this granting of the Plaintiff’s plea that America and Israel remain His Heaven-Rescued Land.
The Gavel has now come down. This being the order of the Court, on and after this date, SO SHALL IT BE.
THE SUPREME JUDGE
