NO KING BUT JESUS! What an amazing hour we are in. The Lord is making His heart and work so clear. In just a few weeks, we will celebrate Thanksgivukkah—a convergence of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving that will not occur again for 79,000 years! Pilgrims and revolutionaries are converging. The covenantal legacies of America and Israel are converging. A new move of God’s Spirit is at hand.
And a week before, Pilgrims and revolutionaries will be gathering together for Revolution 2013 in Valley Forge PA! I truly believe Revolution 2013 is more than a conference, it is a demarcation in history. And God is summoning many of you to join together and step into this brave new season. Come on, No King but Jesus!
Receive New Strength!
Our team is aiming high, with a goal to see the Lord frame this new move of awakening so we can both understand His work and wholeheartedly enter into it. Towards this end, postings for the next few weeks will primarily concentrate on the prophetic history surrounding Revolution 2013, and the apostolic promise set before us all. I want to begin this series with a prophetic experience the Lord gave back in 2011 regarding George Washington and Valley Forge.
As you will see, it was at Valley Forge that Washington forged a group of farmers, millworkers, dockworkers and artisans into such a mighty army that they overthrew the greatest army on the face of the earth at that time.
God wants to raise up His army again in this hour. And this is exactly why we are aiming for at Valley Forge this November 21-23. You will be equipped to become mighty in the Spirit for this season!
George Washington Vision—Valley Forge—2011
“Reviewing the incidents of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error; I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects… Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend” –George Washington, Farewell Address
This morning in prayer, the Lord granted a very unusual prophetic experience. I saw a vision of George Washington. This heroic general and first President of the United States was standing tall in refined colonial garb, with a stern countenance–courageous but clearly unsettled.
Then Washington turned to me, and with tears in his eyes said, “I only saw in part.”
Eyes of a Jealous God
This vision was an answer to a decade-old quandary before the Lord. George Washington was a godly man, and the foundations of our Nation have greatly prospered by his wisdom. History clearly shows he was given to prayer at key moments—as was his mother, a devoted intercessor.
However, Washington was also a Mason. The tragedy of Freemasonry is its inherent idolatry, veiled at first, detested by our Savior. In the eyes of a jealous God, this unholy alliance has become one of our nation’s greatest “covenant conflicts.” And the consequences have been debilitating for generations to come.
Beyond our Frame of Reference
How could the “father of our country” have embraced such a dichotomy? The plea within this vision settled the matter in my spirit. “I only saw in part.”
To his credit, Washington perceived the danger of the illuminati, and famously warned against its doctrines. He saw in part. And beloved, we do too! Lets ask God to make us aware of idolatry and sin that we have yet to perceive—beyond our current frame of reference.
Refounding Fathers & Mothers
I love Washington’s Farewell Address—his candid awareness of defects, and his plea to the Almighty that their consequences be averted or mitigated. Perhaps the recent HAPN/RPN initiave to divorce Baal in each state is somehow tied to this very plea. Christ’s great gift to us is forgiveness. As we repent of our sins, individually and collectively, we can see the enemy’s influence abated and God’s original intention established.
And what’s at stake in this land is the fathering of our nation—directing us towards evil or towards good. The Lord is calling forth Refounding Fathers—and Mothers– launching us into our future by realigning us with our apostolic foundations.
Pray, Train, Persevere
In the vision this morning, this depiction of the Father of our Nation then spoke to me with intense emphasis that “I am again praying by the river.” I remembered the painting of Washington kneeling in prayer at Valley Forge. In a terrible winter, his army of farmers had been reduced to rags, facing sickness and starvation.
Washington prayed. Then he implemented a strategy that seemed totally contrary to the needs of his army. Despite their depleted energies, his army embarked on a regimented and demanding training program. This bitter pause became a major turning point in the Revolution. Farmers and tradesmen became competent as soldiers of war. Against all odds, Washington and his army soon persevered to secure our Nation’s freedom.
I sense this from the Lord—some are deciding either to rest or to gain new training. If you devote yourself to training, you will advance beyond your exhaustion!
Emphasis on Prayer
The emphasis of this vision was certainly on prayer. Washington, the father of our nation, was in the vision devoting himself to praying again by the river. I totally admit—not really sure what this means.
Google search just came up with an astounding story. Unbelievable. Suddenly it all makes sense. Please understand that, until now, I was totally unaware of the following event in Washington’s life. From the website www.ministers-best-friend.com:
“How did God answer George Washington’s prayers at Valley Forge? The following is one historian’s account of the miracles that occurred that winter which helped remedy the impending starvation of the Colonial Army:
One foggy morning the soldiers noticed the Schuylkill River seemed to be boiling. The disturbance was caused by thousands and thousands of shad which were making their way upstream in an unusual early migration.
With pitchforks and shovels the men plunged into the water throwing the fish onto the banks. Dragoons rode their horses into the stream to keep the shad from swimming on out of reach. Suddenly and wonderfully there was plenty of food for the army.”
Another Providential event that occurred that winter was France becoming an ally to America. Much needed French money and troops began to poor into the new nation. The Continental Congress acknowledged this as the hand of God as they declared a National Day of Thanksgiving on May 7.”
Pray for Provision!
What is God saying here? If Washington will pray again—God will release fresh, supernatural supply to His troops! I believe this goes for Washington DC—including our President and governmental leaders– and for generals in this army called the body of Christ. Lets humble ourselves and seek the Lord for what we cannot on our own attain. Pray for provision for your troops… God will release food for His army!
At this critical turning point in our nation—the Lord is willing to resource His army as we persevere for freedom! This is so much greater news than I am able to convey here—maybe even for our national economy, certainly for the Body of Christ. PRAY AGAIN BY THE RIVER—PROVISION WILL COME!
