Dear Storm Warriors,
Today, on the 16th anniversary of the September 11 terror strikes, we pause to remember the day the towers fell. From President and First Lady Trump to Military leaders to the NYPD Firefighters, families and friends, from Wall Street to Main Street, America’s heads are bowed. Our eyes are filled with tears as we make our prayers to God.
And as we open our eyes again, trying to wrap our heads and hearts around the current devastation from two category-four hurricanes in as many weeks. We pray for Bill and Marlene Brubaker as the fires which have burned more than a million acres in the west draw close in Washington State. We ponder the implications of the total eclipse which occurred exactly 40 days from Yom Kippur.
And as we seek His face, our wary nation is asking—what is God saying?
Yesterday as part of our Glory Train journey, Jolene and I had the privilege of ministering at Life Gate International in St. Louis with pastors Kingsley and Glenda Walker. Mama Bunny Warlen shared prophetically. Jolene shared prophetically. Kingsley shared and prayed prophetically. It was awesome.
And in the midst of the service the Lord gave me a download that I believe is extremely pertinent for today. It came as revelatory thunder. And it brought clarity to this season we are now entering into.
I would love to post on everything the Lord showed us yesterday. Sometime soon I will. But Jolene and I are in a private roundtable now. Our time to write is limited. More importantly, the anointing was so strong yesterday I want you to experience it directly. So we are excited to offer you yesterday’s message, “This September 11—What is God Saying?”
Here are a few points from the message. I’m going to begin with a vision the Lord gave me immediately after ministering. I had just prophesied that the next phase of the Amos 9:11 “Tabernacles Movement,” restoring the fallen tabernacle of David, has now begun. I personally believe that the first global trumpet call came from Heaven amidst the rubble and ruin of September 11. The second global trumpet call for this restoration movement has come in this season. Perhaps even today.
In the vision I saw the two hurricanes—Florida and Houston—as if they were on two screens of a weather forecast, one on the left side and one on the right. I saw “Category 4” overlaid over both in bold block text.
Suddenly the “4” of each hurricane floated off of each screen over each hurricane and joined in the center area. They came together to form “4:4.” This was amazing to me, as I had just ministered on Isaiah 4:4-5:
When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning, then the Lord will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy.
Floods and Fires
Look at our floods. Look at our wild fires. I suddenly realized that, through natural disasters, America has been experiencing both the “washing” and the “burning.” Both together are a sign to us. And both are a call to renewed repentance.
Why? Because as we shift into 5778, the Lord is intent on establishing His bridal canopy over us. Personally, regionally, even nationally we are now entering into a “tabernacles movement!” His glory is being restored. And we are being given the opportunity to become thrones of glory to our Father’s house.
Here’s another point on the hurricanes, mentioned in my message. I also felt the Category 4 hurricanes were as an alarm sounding for our nation. On a scale of 1 to 5, we are at 4. We are not at the highest level of alert, but we are close. And our intercession must reflect this.
God’s Vision for US
As we shared in yesterday’s message, the Fall Feasts have become vitally important to set us on the right course for our future. Even to 2020 and beyond.
We are on the Glory Train journey because we firmly believe a His glory is being restored to our land. Last year as we circled the nation on the tour, we knew we were presenting the Lord Jesus Christ with a wedding ring. America married to Jesus!
This tour we see the Lord establishing His glory as a bridal canopy. This covering is the redemptive potential we see for our land. A tabernacles movement. I believe our Glory Train journey is bearing witness to this, and I believe Awaken the Dawn is a sign of this as well. God’s command we are culminating our Glory Train journey in San Diego on the first night of Tabernacles, then at Awaken the Dawn, coming full circle in our Nation’s Capitol.
But that said, we have a choice to make. Remember that the eclipse came 40 days before Yom Kippur, the Day of National Atonement. Jewish tradition holds that the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are days of repentance before Heaven’s Court. On Rosh Hashanah the Book of Life is opened, and again according to Jewish tradition the Lord “pencils in” His verdict for each person. But through repentance and realignment with God’s heart, a better verdict can be secured before these verdicts are finalized on Yom Kippur.
Jewish tradition also holds that blood moons and eclipses, especially before Yom Kippur, are as trumpet blasts compelling God’s people to repentance especially in dire seasons where nations are in the balance.
Ours certainly is. Lets continue to engage together in repentance, receiving communion, and accessing the full potential afforded us in this season. Lets complete the turnaround and see the move of God. This train is bound for glory!
Final point. I love how God has orchestrated our journey. Note that this Rosh Hashanah we will be at Charles Parham’s historic church in Topeka, where Holy Spirit fell in power to launch the Pentecostal movement. This region is essentially the “center point” of God’s bridal canopy nationally. We are then journeying to IHOP-KC for two strategic meetings.
OH—and I cannot wait to share with you some exciting news this September 13! Don’t miss. No King but Jesus…
