IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PERFECT FATHERS DAY GIFT, our new book Turnaround Decrees might be an answer to your prayers. An early shipment allowed us to release the book to you long before national book distributors, and demand has been very high. We want you to be armed and equipped as fathers and mothers to win the spiritual battle over your children, and over this generation!
So on June 21, our book will be launching nationally through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and many more. Please pray that Turnaround Decrees gets in the hands of everyone who needs it. The Lord is raising up a vast army to contend for our sons and daughters, and receive the turnarounds He desires for this season.
And I’m so grateful—because we really need these breakthroughs.
Below is a brief excerpt from “Turnaround Decrees.” Note that the themes and principles surrounding Turnaround Tuesday carry through the entirety of the book.
Discovering the Power of God’s Turnarounds—Excerpts
Jolene and I have experienced miracles as we pursued God’s turnarounds, at His direction. It all began in 2014 when we were directed by Holy Spirit to a passage of Scripture we have since come to call the “Turnaround Verdict.” We gathered at Faneuil Hall in Boston on 7-22 to receive this Daniel 7:22 verdict. Historic Faneuil Hall is actually where many founders met to mobilize toward the American Revolution.
And the gathering proved revolutionary for us. The trajectory for us personally, as well as for the nation, began to shift dramatically from that date forward. From Daniel 7: “I kept watching, and that horn was waging war with the saints and prevailing against them until the Ancient of Days came and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the saints took possession of the kingdom” (verses 21-22).
The “Turnaround Verdict” conveys a dramatic change of events. One moment the saints are being utterly defeated, while the next moment they are being released to possess the Kingdom. Wow, does that sound familiar to our world! The process shown—approaching the Lord as the Ancient of Days, and securing His verdict in your favor—is central to unleashing the potential of Heaven’s turnaround in your life and sphere.
So many miraculous interventions occurred immediately following the release of this verdict… by the grace of God, the greatest turnaround we’ve yet experienced actually came not to the nation or the White House, but to our own house. It answered the deepest longings of our hearts for our son and daughter. And it framed much of this new expression of the movement He is initiating in our midst.
Our Son’s Christmas Miracle
In the fall of 2014, shortly after the Turnaround Verdict was first released at Faneuil Hall, our hearts became strongly resolved to pursue His national turnaround. A gentle rebuke redirected our path. Before we even sought to attain His national turnaround, the Lord wanted us to prioritize family turnarounds, according to Malachi 4:6: “He will turn the hearts of the fathers back to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and strike the land with complete destruction.”
The parallel verse to this is Luke 1:17. “And it is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of fathers back to their children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
So on Christmas Day 2014, we started a year-long project with our Lamplighter Family called “Turnaround Tuesday.” Every Tuesday was set aside for contending prayer, framed at God’s invitation by Daniel 7:22. Our sons and daughters collectively were being held captive by demonic ideologies, addictions, the breaking down of standards of sexuality, and so much more. We prayed fervently for our own children and for the children of those connected with us for the Lord’s turnaround to prevail.
And a genuine Christmas miracle broke forth exactly one year to the day we began… Our son, Jonathan, had fallen away from the Lord during his final few years in college. He had become so resolved in his path that he decided to break up with his college sweetheart, whom he had been dating since his final year of high school. That was a big step because he seemed hopelessly and relentlessly in love with her. But he knew his girlfriend’s bond with the Lord meant everything to her, and he did not want to violate it when he resolved to follow a radically different path…
As we prayed for our son and daughter, our prayers were met with God’s decree. The words of Moses became the words of Jesus to their captors: LET MY CHILDREN GO!
In early December 2015, our son Jonathan contacted us. For the first time in years, he wanted to spend his birthday and Christmas together. And on Christmas morning in 2015, again a year to the date we first began to pray, Jonathan experienced a dramatic visitation from the Lord. Jesus Himself appeared to him in a vision. With hands outstretched and open arms, the Son of God compelled our son to “return home!” We were spending Christmas with my father in Sarasota, Florida, at the time. A knock came to our bedroom door very early Christmas morning. At least it seemed early.
“Hey, Dad, are you up?”
In a flashback to my son’s childhood, my first thought was that he woke up early to open his gifts. But it soon became apparent he had much more important things on his mind. So I got up, and we talked.The conversation went something like this.
“Dad, I wanted you to be the first to know. I came home last night! Well, this morning actually.”
“Yeah. To Jesus! Dad, I had an encounter…”
Imagine a Christmas where your son, or your daughter, comes home to Christ! That’s the best present a parent could ever receive. On the day we celebrate Christ’s birth, Jesus was born anew in my son’s heart and life. “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder” (Isa. 9:6).
This same year of prayer brought incredible breakthrough for our daughter as well. We will share more on this in the next chapter. But this is just a taste of what can happen when you take hold of God’s Turnaround Verdict for your children and resolve to pray relentlessly for their breakthroughs.
God is an incredibly faithful father. He is actually very sentimental. He remembers, and He leads with His heart. I promise it won’t be long until your pleas are met with His decrees, in a way only He can bring forth!
