TONIGHT! If you’re in the New England region, join us at Freedom Journey Outpost, Plymouth MA. Festivities begin at 6:30 pm! More information at http://fjoutpost.org

Today we celebrate Veterans Day. We also celebrate the covenantal legacy of the Pilgrims, who on 11-11, 1620 signed the Mayflower Compact and founded our nation by covenant with Jesus Christ. “In the Presence of God and one another,” they wrote and framed the covenant that would perpetuate the purpose of their journey—“for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”

What an honor to be in Plymouth MA on 11-11 to consecrate to the Lord the book “Crown and Throne,” and stand together with saints in the region and the Lamplighter family for His covenant to be fully established in this hour!

Ok… today as we continue our brief chronicle of prophetic history related to Crown and Throne and Revolution 2013, I want to share with you a vision the Lord gave me back in 1996. I was a young photojournalist, living on Cape Cod at the time. What I share below is sacred to me–really a commissioning vision from the Lord. I have held it so close to my heart over the years it has literally become my heart. If that makes sense.

Remember how we divorced Baal and remarried the Lord in 2011. In our covenant renewal, we asked for His hand in marriage again to Him, according to the covenants of our forefathers. Exactly fifty days later, an earthquake shook the Washington DC area.  Gargoyles toppled from the National Cathedral. The Washington Monument cracked. And more…

God confirmed that He indeed has “cracked the hard shell of demonic resistance” and married our land again. I believe this demarcated the turning point for this vision, and the conception of the Crown and Throne movement we are now seeing Him establish in our midst. As many have declared, the next move of God has begun! For me this journey became defined back in 1996, with this commissioning vision below. And it casts vision for where we are and where we are headed.

LIVE! Calling to a Casket
In 1996, while living on Cape Cod, MA, the Lord gave me a vision of the Bride of Christ in America. Mitt Romney was governor. At the time I was engaged in early morning prayer with my pastor for revival in Provincetown and across Cape Cod. The Pilgrims cut covenant with the Lord in Provincetown harbor on 11-11, 1620, signing the Mayflower Compact and then falling on their faces in worship to God upon reaching shore.

Pastor Chuck had received a series of recurring dreams. A casket was before him in each dream. And in each dream he would prophesy, “Live, live!” to the casket. Yet nothing happened.

The Hand of the Lord Comes
As the pastor shared this vision, the Lord entered me into a prophetic experience. I saw God’s hand come to the casket and break it open. He reached in and pulled up a mummy, wrapped in graveclothes, out of the casket.

Then the hand of the Lord began to unwrap the grave clothes. The face of a beautiful woman emerged. When the wraps were taken off below her neck, I was stunned to see a little child nestled against her bosom.

The Lord began to speak to this woman, “Where you have felt like a widow, abandoned by Me and far from My hand of provision–instead I am bringing you into a season of intimacy with Me and abundance from My hand! And indeed, I have saved the best wine for last.”

It was clear to me that the woman represented His bride in New England and the Nation, betrothed to Jesus Christ from our inception.

And it was also clear to me that the baby represented our heritage–the fruit of His precious covenant with our land.

Inheritance and Destiny
You know by now Jesus’ definition of awakening, found in John 11:11. From death to life! Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep, but I go that I may awaken him from slumber…

Isn’t it something that the Lord awakened His bride, and also awakened this precious child of their covenant. Heritage preserved, destiny released! I believe as of 2012, the Bride of Christ in America and this child of inheritance have both been pulled out of the casket and into LIFE. New Birth of Freedom! Some of the graveclothes still need to be removed. But God is removing the reproach of our widowhood, and is giving us a second chance. Now it’s time to shift the nation–from death and slumber to life, awakening and union.

“Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep; but I go that I may awaken him from slumber”—Jesus defines awakening, John 11:11
