Prayer Points from Dutch Sheets
God is leading me to share a report of what I am hearing from Him for America. God has taken the prayer movement to a more decentralized apostolic paradigm; this is allowing more ownership to be taken on local levels. This is as it should be--the purpose of my update will simply be to make you aware of national issues/developments/events, etc. that need our concerted prayer. The question I will address is simply, "What is the Holy Spirit saying to the praying Church of America?"
Prayer Point 1: Baal
Through a season of tremendous warfare
in November and December, as well as confirmation from many key leaders,
God has exposed the spirit of Baal as one of the strongmen--perhaps
the strongman--over America.
Baal is the strongman behind sexual perversion. Homosexuality was and is one of his big strongholds. I believe all of the sexual sin and perversion in America is, to one degree or another, under Baal's orchestration. You will continue to see God expose leaders in the Church who aligned themselves with this spirit. Pray for the Church to be cleansed and for Baal's hold on America in this area to be broken.
Baal always goes after the next generation, trying to cut off the extension of God's covenantal purposes. He is a violent spirit and even required human sacrifice. Abortion is under Baal, as is the "cutting" of today's young generation (see 1 Kings 18:28), the vampire and goth movement, and the death culture in general that has so invaded America. Baal is leading the fight to avert the great awakening planned for the young generation of Americans today. Pray against and bind these efforts.
Witchcraft and occult spirits in general operate under Baal. So does Jezebel. Pray against this spirit's influence in your area as the Lord leads you. Be wise and discerning, and learn as much as you can about it before you take action. I have barely scratched the surface in this writing.
Prayer Point 2: The Coming Youth Revival
I prophesied in January 2006, that the
lid was coming off of the youth movement (teens and 20's) that year. It
happened. I recently heard Cindy Jacobs say at least 100 college campuses
in America now have 24/7 prayer. Just last week, I heard of three colleges
that are experiencing many conversions and baptizing students in campus
fountains! I was with my dear friends Karen Wheaton and Damon Thompson in
Cleveland, TN, and Hamilton, AL, last week ministering to young people and
youth pastors. I have never seen such passion. Karen's ministry, The Ramp,
is definitely one of the seeds--maybe the foremost seed--of this
awakening. It is incredible.
As I set myself to seek the Lord concerning this date and study Baal because of the warfare I was experiencing, the two issues began to dovetail. I found the number "seven" in most of the passages where Israel was coming out from under this spirit or warring against one of the Canaanite and Baal worshiping tribes. In seeking to understand the significance of this, the Lord reminded me that seven is a covenantal number.
In a covenant ceremony, an offering
was repeated seven times or an oath was sworn seven times. The words
"oath" and "swear" actually come from the number seven and mean literally
"to seven one's self." I believe the Lord revealed to me that on
07/07/07, God is offering America the opportunity to end our
covenant/marriage with Baal and re-establish our covenant with God as a
nation. I am not implying that the full fruit of this will be
seen immediately but that the stronghold can be broken and change will
follow. Pray for Lou Engle and this event and if at all
possible, be in Nashville with us on 07/07/07. Go to The Call's web site:
www.thecall.com for details.
We are asking for 100,000 people to come.
Point 3: Government
2) Pray for a completion of what God has begun on the Supreme Court. I sense great lethargy and complacency concerning this at the present time. If we don't get a third "right" Justice onto the bench, we will not cross over into a new season. Winning this war is imperative! Please pick up this assignment again.
3) Pray against terrorism and
concerning the situation in the Middle East. It is absolute deception for
us to believe radical Islam can be defeated through natural forces only.
We must do a better job of picking up this burden. It is one of the
callings of our time and a billion souls are hanging in the balance.
I sense another shift is coming soon to this region. Please pray
for our President, military, advisors, and all who are involved in this.
Bind the prince of Persia and Babylon from prevailing.
As you continue to war for your personal regions and territories, please don't forget the nation as a whole. Pray with us. We are winning this war.
