DEAR LAMPLIGHTER FAMILY,
NO KING BUT JESUS. I am privileged to share by video today with apostolic leader Faisal Malick, author of the reformational book The Political Spirit, for his amazing Sunday service in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. The message is critical for this moment. And I guarantee a revelatory flow! Service begins at 1pm today, and replays will be available. Thank you Faisal and blessings to the Covenant of Life family.
SOMETHING IS STIRRING IN MY SPIRIT TODAY and I’m praying for clarity. I felt it suddenly during my morning time with the Lord. We had already planned to launch the “White House Watchmen” prayer project in conjunction with our book launch. That said I am sensing great turmoil for August. It feels like as if the entire month needs to be covered in watchman prayer. So lets start tonight—now through August 24!
Wow. I just discovered that Portland protesters burned an American flag on top of a stack of Bibles. This is heartbreaking. This after literally stabbing a conservative black blogger and firing mortar-launched fireworks at police. Wrong kind of protest!
Beloved it’s no coincidence that Hurricane Isaias is about to hit Florida. The storm has dissipated somewhat but the magnitude is not what is important. What is important is that ISAIAH IS COMING TO THE EAST COAST, the geographic east gate of our nation.
Please hear this prophetically. We began prophesying from Isaiah 6, including the “conflict of crowns” as well as the restoration of God’s governmental glory, months before the challenges which have come to define 2020 actually began. Here’s a lesson learned by Isaiah. In the midst of the tumult you have got to find the Lord of hosts. You must find His secret place. You must seek Him until He is found. Consistently. And He will come through your gates.
Stay faithful. On the other side of this travail is the unveiling of His governmental glory. Because in this month the Breaker moves through the gates of our land. Below are three prophetic utterances from the prophet Isaiah that we must war over for fulfillment during the month of August.
- Guard Your Gates. “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; and give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth” (Isaiah 62:6-7).
August 2020 marks a moment when God Himself is arising to set watchmen on the wall, guarding the gates of our Capitol, our cities, our nation, our spheres even as Jerusalem was guarded. It is no coincidence the book White House Watchmen is being released during this time. The book is merely bearing witness to a new movement He is birthing! This is one of the reasons many of you are now entering into a new season of travail in prayer.
- Repel the Onslaught at the Gates! “In that day the Lord of hosts will become a beautiful crown and a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people; a spirit of justice for him who sits in judgment, a strength to those who repel the onslaught at the gate” (Isaiah 28:5-6). We must contend for justice, even for the Department of Justice, in this hour. Key watchman focus!
Final point. Remember we are in a conflict of crowns. Note that as we advance through this travail of justice the Lord of hosts BECOMES A CROWN FOR HIS REMNANT!
- Glory Through Your Gates! Remember how God’s governmental glory came in Isaiah’s day. The prophet suffered loss as the thrones of his governmental rulership were shaken. But he continued to seek the Lord in his temple. God’s response was to unveil His unshakeable Throne.
“Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts! The whole earth is filled with His glory. And the gateposts shook at the voice of him who cried; and the temple was filled with smoke” (Isaiah 6:3-4). Suddenly the holiness of God came through the gates and His glory was revealed. Holy conviction flooded the land!
Note the gates of resistance gave way at the sound of breakthrough praise and declaration. It is the same in our time. Holy, Holy, Holy! This must become the anthem of your heart and home for this hour. In the midst of the tumult the Breaker breaks open!
