TOMORROW, FEB. 12! STATE OF THE UNION PRAYER CALL! 9-10 pm EST. Lets hear together God’s perspective on the “State of the Union.” Conference call number: 805-399-1200 access code 552-690. Use *6 to mute/unmute. Invite your friends!

God wants to birth Freedom Outposts in 2013. These apostolic hubs will be vital to transforming regions into places of refuge in days ahead.

Throughout this project, we have explored God’s “New Birth of Freedom” with a focus on Exodus 12 and Acts 12. Exodus 12 recounts the Passover story. Acts 12 recounts how, during Passover, the Apostle Peter was imprisoned. Mary’s house became a “Freedom Outpost” that contended 24/7 for Peter’s release. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared, and Peter was delivered from confinement!

We feel the Spirit of God has spoken to us about a body-wide Passover breakthrough. Where He brings the apostolic out of confinement and into a greater influence, demonstration of power, and function in the earth.

And as part of this we’re going to see a breakthrough on abortion. Not totally sure what this looks like, but we know it’s coming.

Through Passover–Applying God’s Verdict!
Most of you already know about the prayer work being facilitated by HAPN/RPN leaders. Beginning Jan. 22, the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, HAPN leaders nationwide have facilitated this New Birth of Freedom project with a goal of praying onsite at every known abortion clinic by Passover. Together we are accessing the Court of Heaven and receiving His verdict–as we pray through the Divorcement from Baal, the Life Decree, and more.

Friends, I totally believe the Lord is requiring this for our preservation in this hour. It is similar to His requirement during Passover to apply the blood of a spotless lamb on the lintels and doorposts of each home. When the blood was applied, the house was preserved. We must understand that applying the Blood of the Lamb was, and literally is, applying His “courtroom verdict” for His people.

That said, make sure you and your family have engaged in repentance and have aligned with His precious covenant. Maybe you want to pray personally through the Divorcement from Baal and the Life Decree. We encourage you to do so by Passover! To connect with HAPN leaders in your state, see www.hapn.us

Preparing Regions of Refuge
I know by the Spirit that receiving Christ’s atonement for the bloodguilt of the land is absolutely catalytic to releasing Freedom Outposts and regions of refuge. It’s like we are somehow preparing the very ground for the release ahead. The Lord has already granted miraculous transformations in various parts of the nation, particularly the heartland, in conjunction with these efforts.

What is a region of refuge? Doomsday preppers would define them as places where there’s enough food, vitamins, and water stored to take care of them and their families. And enough ammo to take out others seeking provision to stay alive.

Biblically, there’s something more. God wants to prepare regions now for future challenges. So that multitudes can be preserved, and find a new birth of freedom.

I look at Jerusalem as the best prototype of a region of refuge. Most of her history shows how compromise with idolatry led to sabotage and plunder, again and again. But from the time David restored the Ark of the Covenant to Zion, Israel never lost a battle!

In other words, as covenant was restored and the Tabernacle of David was set in place, God’s supernatural “homeland security” overtook the land. Neighboring nations were no longer able to plunder. God’s people were suddenly able to retain the abundance He had granted. This newfound stability even allowed for generational wealth to accumulate.

Through this transformational process, Israel’s capital went from being plundered to being a city of refuge.

Progression: Amos 9:11-13
Amos 9:11-13 records how this process will be restored as part of God’s end-time wineskin–in Jerusalem, but also in the nations. “In that day I will raise up the fallen tabernacle of David, and wall up its breaches; I will also raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old; That they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations who are called by My Name,” Declares the Lord who does this. “Behold, the Days are coming,” declares the Lord, when the plowman will overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed…”

Phase 1: Homeland Security
Lets briefly note the progression here. First, it’s a misnomer to say that the Tabernacle of David is being restored simply so people can grow in intimacy with the Lord. He also restored it so that the remnant of Edom might be possessed!

From a homeland security perspective, Edom was the sworn plunderer of the Jewish people. What is your “edom?” As covenant is restored and Throne Room worship springs forth, the most vigilant spiritual enemies will be brought low. In the natural, many enemies will become God’s friend!

This pattern is also seen in the life of Gideon. He tore down his father’s altar to Baal and built an altar of worship on the stronghold. Only then was he released to deliver his nation from its enemies.

Phase 2: Cycle of Harvest
Homeland security is the first phase of transformation. The second phase is dependent upon the first, but is even more amazing. As this restoration matures generationally, we see how the harvest becomes so great that the plowman overtakes the reaper. A perpetual cycle of harvest!

Protection, recovery and harvest–all byproducts of restoring God’s covenant, and rebuilding an altar for His glory! I believe this is primarily how regions of refuge will be established.

Restoring the Bridal Canopy
Like Gideon and David, many have been preparing the ground for this transformation in their region. In 2010-2011, we worked to see the divorcement from Baal and resetting of covenant with Jesus Christ, specifically related to idolatry. In 2012 we saw how the Lord is restoring His bridal canopy over the land. David’s Tent was a signpost of this. But across this nation, purified altars of worship and apostolic community are now being released!

And in 2013, God is speaking a “New Birth of Freedom.” This time we are praying through the divorcement of Baal specifically related to abortion. As repenting of idolatry is key to releasing purified altars of worship, so repenting of abortion is key to releasing God’s cycle of harvest.

And part of this will be the birth of Freedom Outposts, bringing entire regions into the canopy of protection and abundance afforded by His covenant presence.
