DEAR DESTINY WATCHMEN,
ISRAEL AND AMERICA—WHO DO YOU BELONG TO? And what is your inheritance? The convergence of two dramatic events this week brings these questions into view. And prophetically, the answer to both is found in Isaiah 22. We’ll explore this in a moment.
First, points for prayer. The highest levels of leadership in American and Israeli diplomacy are meeting together today, tomorrow and throughout next week regarding Prime Netanyahu’s desire to annex portions of Judea and Samaria. Next week is the deadline for the decision.
Second, most of the current protests have officially moved beyond the justice cause that gave them bedrock legitimacy in Jesus. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd seem to be back-burner issues, replaced by an overarching focus on generating lawlessness and chaos while despoiling America’s heritage. Ulysses S. Grant, the Union general who defeated the Confederate army and then went on to become President, was a victim. So was Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner during the War of 1812.
If you know your history, both men dedicated their lives for freedom. Taking down their statues is kind of like defacing the Lincoln Memorial. Which also actually happened during the outset of these riots.
Shields Up! Prophetic Warning
HOMELAND SECURITY IS NOW PARAMOUNT. Here’s an example. Jamie Jackson and I walked the streets by Lafayette Park last night, where earlier a rowdy crowd was prevented from toppling the Andrew Jackson statue. Saint John’s Church was vandalized again with spray paint, this time showcasing the initials of yet another “new movement.” This time the Black House Autonomous Zone. Protesters in DC are now attempting to set up a counterpart to Seattle’s murderous autonomous zone.
A fire was set in a dumpster. There were no police checking on it, and only an impassioned, very persuasive call from a friend convinced the 911 dispatcher to actually respond.
In the scale of things a dumpster fire or even a car fire is relatively nonthreatening. But by the Spirit of God, all at once I realized a hidden danger. I saw how a rogue nation like Iran could unleash terror against the highest halls of power by co-opting the protests and riots towards their ends. Especially at a time when potential annexation is being discussed.
Through proxies Hezbollah or Hamas or others, contents embedded in a dumpster fire could unleash a weapon of mass destruction.
We discussed this on the way home. This morning Jamie awoke from a dream where radical jihadists had co-opted the protest movement and fired weapons to slaughter people en masse. We are giving you a real-time alert to pray.
Jolene also received a warning dream recently where vigilant watchman prayer was imperative through July 4. SHIELDS UP!
Eliakim—Fathering a Nation into Freedom
Last week, while taping for Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural” programs, the Lord spoke to me about Fathers Day 2020. Two key prophecies from our coming book “White House Watchmen” were highlighted, one about a rescue for President Trump and one about the release of covenantal inheritance. We’ll share more on this later. But I saw the imperative on God’s heart that we all pass one specific test that many have been struggling with in order to receive the authorization to possess our inheritance.
The test may surprise you. Very simply, it is embracing the leadership call as a father to your sphere.
Isaiah 22 conveys how God brought a tremendous shaking to Jerusalem society with the intention of provoking His leaders and people to return to repentance and covenant renewal. It is the very process their forefather David entered into at the threshing floor. They were being called back to the threshing floor that had become a generational altar, where a covenant promise was given. “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways… I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and I will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
But instead of repentance God found defiance, pride and belligerence. “In that day I called you to weeping, to wailing, to shaving of the head and wearing sackloth, instead there is gaiety and gladness, eating of meat, slaughtering of sheep… Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we may die!”
God’s response was to topple Shebna. The guy was literally building a monument to himself during this time of governmental shaking. “The Lord is about to hurl you headlong o man… you shame of your master’s house! I will depose you from your office!”
A leader was then summoned to take Shebna’s place. He was the son of Hilikiah. The name Hilkiah means “God of allotments” or “God of inheritance.” He fathered a man named Eliakim, whose name means “God of arising” or “God of awakening.” And to him was given the scrolls of inheritance of the house of David—to perpetuate the covenantal heritage his forefathers lived and died to obtain. I will entrust him with your authority, and he will become a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah…”
Here’s a description of the tremendous governmental authority entrusted to Eliakim, and its purpose.“Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, when he opens no one will shut, when he shuts no one will open. I will drive him like a peg in a firm place, and he will become a throne of glory to his father’s house” (Isaiah 22:22-23).
What’s the key issue in all of this? From the White House to Your House, the key issue is fatherhood. Will you be a father, a mentor, to those you rule? Will you work to bring out the best in them? Empower them for success?
And please don’t say that President Trump has not fulfilled this Eliakim call, at least in part. He has many challenges. But in the latter years of his life Trump has worked literally night and day to benefit the American people. That’s why prior to Covid we had a record-breaking economy with record-breaking unemployment for blacks, asians and hispanics. Opportunity Zones were initiated to pour billions of dollars in investment money to lift the most impoverished neighborhoods out of a cycle of poverty and desolation. The Prison Reform and Redemption Act belongs to Donald Trump, not to his predecessor.
And long by the way, before any of these protesters ever walked the streets, Donald Trump was fighting for equality—putting his money where his mouth is. In a historic case, he fought the Palm Beach town council to open Mar-a-Lago to blacks and Jews. He won. Consequently, Mar-a-Lago became the first club in Palm Beach history to welcome blacks.
As we’ve been prophesying since 2015, the 2020 elections secure our pathway as a nation for generations to come. We either secure and perpetuate our generational inheritance of genuine freedom or yield it to those under the influence of an antichrist spirit seeking to use America as a beach-head for global governance tied to idolatry and empowering subjugation.
What is most under assault? The Eliakim call. Yet in the midst of this, God is initiating a new wave of breakthrough. It’s worth your energy to engage. Welcome to the Eliakim project. No King but Jesus…
