BREAKING NEWS—Announcing the 13 Colonies Freedom Journey! July 2-22. Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce join us at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall to culminate on July 22. More details to come. TIME FOR AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN!
Consecration for His Cause
Throughout this week we’ve explored the forerunner anointing, and forerunning prayer for awakening. We’ve seen how God uncapped a well of forerunning prayer for awakening just for this hour of history.
Folks have been wondering where we’re going with all this. Very simply, the Lord is bringing a Third Great Awakening, and He is calling His people now to give themselves fully to forerunning prayer for this revolutionary move of the Holy Spirit in our nation. He wants our consecration for His cause.
Dutch Sheets became an example for us all when he resigned from his current duties to give himself fully to God’s move of awakening. Dutch realized time is short, and our nation could go either way. In the same fashion, you too are being compelled by the Spirit to take your stand—to give our all and see this sacred work brought to completion.
13 Colonies Freedom Journey—Spiritual Revolution
With this at heart, I am putting the stake in the ground TODAY for this summer’s 13 Colonies Freedom Journey. Details on locations etc are now being worked out.
But the 13 Colonies Freedom Journey has been commissioned by God as a forerunning prayer expression to literally release His awakening. That’s exactly what has been prophesied. And it’s been why I’ve been wrestling with God so much over the journey. God solemnly warned me that this project was being administrated, but it was not being birthed. Please join me in laying hold of Nash’s example and lets birth this work together through prayer!
Jonathan Edwards called the awakening of his hour “a divine attack upon society.” We need the same! And it is now time for a radical move of the Spirit that will revolutionize our world. If this resonates with you, please join us for the cause!
Forerunning Prayer for Awakening
We’re going to close out our week-long focus on forerunning prayer for awakening with a prophetic word by Jeremiah Johnson, a young pastor in Lakeland FL. Though I’ve only briefly met Jeremiah, I believe he’s a maturing prophetic voice for our nation. And it is extraordinary how the Lord gave him a word on Daniel Nash and the east coast at this very time.
Before we go there… I shared yesterday three aspects of Father Nash’s legacy that are vital for today. This morning in prayer I felt the Lord emphasize two more. So here are all five for your review.
- Covenant Partnership. Daniel Nash entered into a covenant partnership with Charles Finney to accomplish God’s work in the Second Great Awakening. His very tombstone bears witness to this. Engraved on it are the simple words, “Daniel Nash, laborer with Finney, mighty in prayer.”
- Forerunning Prayer. Daniel Nash was sent ahead of Charles Finney to “pray through” in the places where Finney was about to minister. He would often engage in travailing prayer onsite for a month or more, which included nonstop pleas and tears for souls. Then Nash and Finney together would reap what was perhaps the greatest harvest seen since the Book of Acts! God is commissioning many intercessors in this hour to engage in forerunning prayer for His third great awakening.
- Breaking through Baal. Nash and Finney both gained earned authority to break through the prevailing idolatry of the hour through prayer and action. Charles Finney was a Freemason before he was saved. God prompted him immediately to repentance, and to call for repentance in every service from this idolatry of his hour. He actually attributed the outpouring of the Second Great Awakening—which he believed was second only to the Book of Acts—to entire denominations repenting of this idolatry.
- Onsite intercession. It’s important to note that Nash didn’t just intercede from a ministry headquarters or a house of prayer. Instead he also went to the area where God was about to move, and prayed onsite until Holy Spirit broke through. Friends, the move of the Spirit is often demarcated by a geographic location. And onsite prayer brings onsite breakthrough!
- Extraordinary results. Daniel Nash’s legacy can be defined by one word, and that’s “results.” He prayed through, travailing until he sensed the work was birthed. God moved, and multitudes were born again! Today amidst our conferences, cutting-edge worship, incessant projects and hype, we still have little manifestation of His Kingdom in our midst. That’s about to change—as we learn to pray “until!!”
THE “NASHARITE” ARMY—by Jeremiah Johnson
I have recently had a series of prophetic dreams that have led me into several powerful visitations from the Holy Spirit. Through these encounters, He has graciously enlightened the eyes of my heart to what He is currently doing in the body of Christ and what we can expect to take place in the days ahead. I sense that now is the time to release what I have seen and heard.
The First Dream
On Monday Night May 5th, I had a dream where I found myself in a medieval-looking city with thousands of people who were fearful and oppressed as the enemy had laid siege to their city. I began to rally them together and tell them that they must fight and not flee. As I gave them instructions, Corey Russell and Allen Hood from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City entered the city. Corey began shouting commands to the people to put on their armor and get ready for battle.
As he finished preparing the people, I began to prophesy to him and say, ” Corey! For every 1 voice of awakening that God is releasing in America, He is releasing 7 voices of Intercession that will prepare the way for the coming revival.” As I said this statement, everything in the dream stopped and I had the captive audience of an entire city.
Again I prophesied and said, “Corey! For every 1 voice of awakening that God is releasing in America, He is releasing 7 voices of Intercession that will prepare the way for the coming revival!”
I continued on and said, “God gave Lou Engle the Nazarites in this nation, but He is now giving you the Nasharites in this nation. You will raise up a generation of Nash’s, voices of Intercession, that will outnumber the voices of Awakening. My Spirit blows through these young Nasharites like a gust of wind, but you will take them and turn them into houses of prayer. The mark of the Nasharites is that they themselves will be called, ‘Houses of Prayer’.”
I immediately woke up from the dream with fire all over my body. I said to the Spirit as I sat up in my bed, “This isn’t just a dream for Corey Russell, this is a dream to sound the alarm in America for the raising up of voices of Intercession.” I began to weep and say, “God we have placed so much emphasis on ‘Voices of Awakening’ in this nation, and so little time raising up ‘Voices of Intercession’ that will pave the way for the awakening and revival that is coming.”
Who are the Nasharites?
At the beginning of the Second Great Awakening in America, there was a man named Daniel Nash who at age 48, began to give himself totally to prayer for the meetings of Revivalist Charles Finney. Nash would enter into towns and cities weeks before Finney would have his Awakening meetings and travail in the place of intercession and prayer that God might pour out His Spirit upon the meetings.
One story is told that Daniel Nash entered a city and could only find a dark cellar to pray in before the revival meetings came to town. Lying prostrate on the ground and groaning, he began to call upon the name of the Lord and succeeded in pulling heaven down to earth. When Charles Finney would eventually come and have the Awakening meetings, Nash would usually not attend, but kept praying in secret for souls and deliverance. It has been said that the Second Great Awakening in America brought in several hundred thousand souls to the Lord.
Upon his death in 1831, Daniel Nash’s gravestone read: DANIEL NASH Laborer with Finney Mighty in Prayer Nov 17, 1775-Dec 20, 1831.
Just as Daniel Nash or “Father Nash” as many call him today, committed himself to being a Voice of Intercession that would give time and resources to the place of travail and intercession before Charles Finney, the messenger of Awakening would preach, so God is raising up a Nasharite army in the earth that will win heaven’s blessing and approval before revival and awakening meetings ever take place in cities and regions. God is calling and commissioning men and women in America who will wholly give themselves to birthing in the spirit what they cannot see in the natural. The lazy are being transformed into laborers in the American Church.
The Second Dream
On May 10th, I had another dream that gave me more clarity and revelation into what God is doing in America. In the dream, I found myself looking down upon the United States where two large bowls filled with Incense representing the prayers of the saints were beginning to tip over America. The Holy Spirit immediately spoke to me and said, “You must tell the pastors in America that it’s not when the seats are filled that the kingdom will come, but it’s when the bowls are full that the kingdom will come in their midst.”
A bible was opened up to Revelation 8 and I began to read, “And when He broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God; and seven trumpets given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, that he might add it to the prayers of the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer; and he filled it with the fire of the altar and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds of flashes of lightning and an earthquake.”
East Coast, West Coast—More Prayer Needed!
At this, an angel appeared in the dream and began to tip the bowls over several regions of the United States. The Holy Spirit again said to me, “Remember Jeremiah, it’s not when the seats are full in the churches that my kingdom will come, but it’s when the bowls are full of intercession that my kingdom will be released upon America.” The bowls full of what looked like holy fire and lava began to tip over the Panhandle of Florida. At this I heard a cry ring out and say, “Damon Thompson is (a) Voice of Awakening sent to that region, but more voices of Intercession are needed to carry the meetings. Many that will pray, will never even attend the services.”
A bowl began to tip over the state of Kentucky, another over the state of Texas, and the Spirit spoke again and said, “More prayer is needed on the East and West Coasts for surely darkness and mixture has infiltrated these regions. There are many displays of power, but few displays of intercession and travail on these coasts.”
Hear the Cry
A trumpet blast is being released in America! The Nasharite Army is beginning to awake. These voices of Intercession will outnumber the voices of Awakening in this nation.
Where are those who will give themselves to travail and prayer to see the kingdom birthed in the spirit before it is ever manifested in the natural? Where are the pastors and leaders who will shift entire ministries and churches from filling up seats to filling up the bowls! Yes, the bowls are beginning to tip in the Panhandle of Florida, they are tipping in Kentucky, Texas, and many more voices of Intercession are needed on the East and West Coasts. Having labored 20 and 30 years ago to see revival and awakening come will not suffice anymore. A new breed of Nasharites with a fresh stirring and hunger for more are being released upon America. The masses will never know their names, but heaven will! May those who have ears to hear and eyes to see listen to what the Spirit is saying in this hour.
