Prayer Portions

The Lord had placed it upon my heart for this week to pray during the prayer watch for the scroll of America, and for the 13 North-eastern States.  We have a covenant with the Lord, and we affirm that covenant, and stand for our nation and its future in God and its destiny in the earth to be accomplished.  When I read Bob Jones latest word regarding the justice of God, I was burdened even more for the nation to regain her national vision again.  He mentions 11 of the NE states in his word, and we also looked up the original founding 13 colony states so we could also pray into them.

Unless the heart of our nation is reawakened and the hearts of the people turned towards the Lord, then we will not accomplish the purposes that God has for our nation to fulfill.  The Lord is here to find a people that fully believe in Him, and that have faith in America and in her God-given destiny, and that will stand within her in prayer to see her fully healed and to pray for her till she accomplishes her mandates that God gave to her to do in the earth.  It is time for a great awakening.

I list the articles below for your reference and for your own prayers to be added to ours.  I will also list the excerpts of the visions and prophecies that were given by the Lord during the prayer watch.

Justice of God – by Bob Jones   May 2, 2013

“I was praying about certain things that would take place in the earth concerning hurricanes, tornadoes, volcano eruptions and earthquakes.  These four things are going to really become rampant in the earth.  I was trying to get an insight into the Father’s heart and seeking Him to see if He was the one that will bring the judgments.  As I prayed about this I began to see that the Father’s heart is love and how He puts His hand over a people that love and how He protects them from these major tragedies.  Most people think that when these things happen it’s the Father bringing the judgments.  Maybe to a degree it is because He simply removes His hand off of a people that no longer have any intention of repenting or turning to Him in any way.  These people have violated and defiled their conscience to such a degree they can sin without conviction coming on them any more.

God began to show me certain states that had done this according to His word.  They had openly violated their conscience in the laws they made and instituted.  The Father showed me that He would no longer cover their sin.  When these areas become so dark, the Father removes His hand and the devil is always looking for openings.  When the Father removes His hand it’s because man no longer turns to righteousness.  They no longer want the Bible or the Word of God.  When they remove the word of God from the schools and everything else it brings judgment in the school.

Nearly everybody believes it’s the Father judging and bringing these disasters in the nation.  I believe the judgment of the Father is Him removing His hand off of you; then the devil comes in and kills.  The devil is the murderer, the liar, thief and killer.  Where there’s no protection then Satan has his way and we know his way by how he’s described in scripture.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy  (John 10:10a).

I no longer believe it’s the Father bringing judgment but the Father is bringing justice.  The hand of the Father is going to cover and protect those who are being led by their spirit and repenting during this time of great pressure.  These four things; volcanoes, earthquakes, weather systems including tornadoes and hurricanes are coming into areas where the Father removes His hand. It is not the will of the Father that these things take place rather it’s the will of the people that have turned against Him, His Word and against His law of love.

Where there is repentance there will be forgiveness and the authority to take authority over these storms.  The Father is Love and He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked but Satan takes delight in their death.  There are areas, even in the United States, where we the people have given it over to Satan.  Where there is no intercessor to stand in the gap, God will allow the land to be destroyed.

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one  (Ezekiel 22:30).

Where there are people who stand in the gap for a certain place safety abounds . In the 7th chapter of Amos, God relented twice because Amos stood in the gap when God was going to destroy Jacob.  Moses interceded many times for the children of Israel and saved them from God’s judgment.

There’s a real call of the Holy Spirit for the saints to join themselves together in a unity of repentance and intercession and really expound on the gospel.  When we know what the gospel says, we’ll know that God the Father is love.  The Father allowing these calamities to take place is His last mercy and grace to wake people up.  Where there is repentance and turning away from wickedness God the Father will put His hand back over it and cover them once again.

We’re in the time of the Justice of the Father.  When you go to court for judgment, the judge finds for the innocent and rules against the guilty.  I think the finding against the guilty will remove the protection by the Father off the places that choose another besides Him.  The Father will always rule on behalf of the innocent.

There are eleven north-eastern states that have said they don’t want the Bible and they don’t want Christians or their values.  When they tell the Father they don’t want Him or His Word, He removes His hand and Satan moves in.  You either have the love of the Father covering you or the wickedness of Satan over you.  It’s our choice and we live with the consequences of the choice we make.”

The 13 Original Colonies – Wikipedia:

“The Thirteen Colonies were the British colonies on the Atlantic coast of North America founded between 1607 (Virginia) and 1733 (Georgia).  They began collaborating at the Albany Congress of 1754 to demand their rights and set up a Continental Congress that declared independence in 1776 and formed the states of the United States of America.

The thirteen colonies were: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts Bay, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.  Each colony developed its own system of self-government.  Residents of these colonies were mostly independent farmers, who owned their own land and voted for their local and provincial government.”

George Washington’s Vision

“In the National Tribune, 1880, an article appeared giving an account of the “Vision of Washington” at Valley Forge.  The account was told by a gentleman named Anthony Sherman, who supposedly was at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78.  The story has been published several times.

Some people will say that it is substantiated by the fact that a copy of the account is in the Library of Congress.  This argument of authenticity is misleading in and of itself.  The Library of Congress has copies of anything published.  That does not indicate accuracy of the content.

I am unaware of any eighteenth-century evidence that corroborates this story.  The soldier mentioned as having a first-hand account of the “Vision,” Anthony Sherman, was a soldier in the Continental Army.  However, according to his pension application, written by him, he states that he was at Saratoga under the command of Benedict Arnold at the end of 1777 and only joined the main forces in 1778 in New Jersey just before the Battle of Monmouth.”

Anthony Sherman wrote:

You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.  One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone.  When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual.  There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance.  Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance.  After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.

George Washington’s Vision

This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me.  Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female.  So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence.  A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me.  I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible.  I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralysed.

A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me.  All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor.  Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous.  Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before.  I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution.  I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible.  I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

Presently I heard a voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold.  This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene.  Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world  —  Europe, Asia, Africa and America.  I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

“Son of the Republic,” said the same mysterious voice as before, “look and learn.”  At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America.  Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe.  Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean.  For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds.  Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before.  The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view.  A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, “Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.”  At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened specter approach our land.  It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter.  The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other.  As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, “Remember ye are brethren.”  Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying “Son of the Republic, look and learn.”  At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa.  Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one.  Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America.  Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up.  As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.”  When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.  “Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America.  At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits.  These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.”  As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America.  Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: “While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.”  And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word “Union,” he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, “Amen.”

The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld.  This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, “Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic.  The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her.  Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union.”  With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.”

General George McClellan’s Vision

The following report showing divine intervention to preserve the Union is taken from The Individual Christian Scientist, Vol. XI, No. 2.  It was originally published in the Portland (Maine) Evening Courier on March 8, 1862, a little less than a year after the Civil War began with the firing upon Fort Sumter by rebel forces in April of 1861:

When 1862 dawned few realized how dire the situation was for the Republic….  General George Brinton McClellan went to Washington, D.C., to take over command of the United States Army. A t 2 A.M. on the third night after his arrival, he was working over his maps and studying the reports of the scouts when a feeling of intense weariness caused him to lean his head on his folded arms on the table where he fell asleep.

About ten minutes later the locked door was suddenly thrown open, someone strode right up to him and in a voice of power and authority said:  “General McClellan, do you sleep at your post?  Rouse you, or ere it can be prevented, the foe will be in Washington.”

In his published article General McClellan described his strange feelings….  He seemed suspended in infinite space and the voice came from a hollow distance all about him…. The furnishings and walls of the room had vanished leaving only the table covered with maps before him.  But he found himself gazing upon a living map of America including the entire area from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean.

McClellan was aware of the being that stood beside him, but could only identify it as a vapor having the vague outline of a man.

As he looked at the living map the general was at first amazed and then elated as he saw the troop movements and a complete pattern of the enemy’s lines and distribution of forces.  This knowledge would enable him to terminate the war speedily.  But this elation dissolved as he saw the enemy occupy positions he had intended occupying within the next few days.  He realized his plans were known to the enemy.

At this realization the voice spoke again: “General McClellan, you have been betrayed!  And had not God willed otherwise, ere the sun of tomorrow had set, the Confederate flag would have waved above the Capitol and your own grave.  But note what you see.  Your time is short.”

McClellan did note what he saw on the living map, transferring it to the paper map on his table.  When this was done he became aware that the figure near him had increased in light and glory until it shone as the noonday sun.  He raised his eyes and looked into the face of George Washington.

With sublime and gentle dignity Washington said, “General McClellan, while yet in the flesh I beheld the birth of the American Republic.  It was indeed a hard [struggle] but God’s blessing was upon the nation, and… with His mighty hand brought her out triumphantly.  A century has not passed since then…. and now by reason of this prosperity she has been brought to her second great struggle.…

“But her mission will not then be finished; for ere another century shall have gone by, the oppressors of the whole world shall join themselves together and raise up their hands against her.  But if she still be found worthy of her high calling, [the enemy] shall surely be discomfited.

“Then will be ended her third and last great struggle for existence.

Thenceforth shall the Republic go on, increasing in power and goodness, until her borders shall end only in the remotest corners of the earth, and the whole earth shall, beneath her sheltering wing, become a universal Republic.  Let her in her prosperity, however, remember the Lord her God, let her trust be always in Him, and she shall never be confounded.”

Washington raised his hand over McClellan’s head in blessing, a peal of thunder rumbled through space; the general awoke with a start.  He was in his room with his maps spread out on the table before him, but as he looked at them [he saw] the maps were covered with marks and figures he had made during the vision…. this convinced him that his dream or vision was real and was from above.

He set about immediately… to thwart the enemy’s plan, riding his horse from camp to camp to implement the changes at once.  The Confederate Army was so near that President Lincoln could hear the rumble of their artillery… at the White House.”

Susan:

Bob Jones says, that we are in the decade of faith from 2010 to 2020.  It is so important that God finds a people of faith in America to agree with Him for our nation.  In every war, God had a general that believed, and that sought His face.  Our purpose is to agree with heaven, and to see that the scroll that is written for our nation to fulfill is finished.

Quote:

“Then will be ended her third and last great struggle for existence.  Thenceforth shall the Republic go on, increasing in power and goodness, until her borders shall end only in the remotest corners of the earth, and the whole earth shall, beneath her sheltering wing, become a universal Republic.  Let her in her prosperity, however, remember the Lord her God, let her trust be always in Him, and she shall never be confounded.”

It’s time for the Justice of God.  It’s time for the Faith of God to arise from His People.  It is time for the North East to return to God, to have faith, and to seek God’s face for our land.  We are the Covenant Roots.  It’s time for the roots to begin to sprout and break out in fresh faith and vision again.  We must be the altar for America, and we must believe in God, and agree with Him, to change our hearts and change the church, and change our land.

The Lord is dealing with America:  What do you believe?  In who do you believe?  Who do you say that I am?  Return to Me!

Luke 18:8   “I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily.  However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?”

Hebrews 10:7   “Then I said, Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God — [to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book.”

 

We then began to pray in the Spirit for a few minutes to get the heart and mind of the Lord, and then we all shared what the Lord gave to each of us for our nation in prayer:

Beauty:

The Lord came and visited me, and He had on a white tunic and He had a crown on.  The crown had gold around it with red velvet under it and a cross on the top part.  His Blood came out of the crown, and poured out and the Glory Cloud as a covering.  The Lord wants us to pray the Blood Covenant over the nation, to cover the nation with the Blood.

The next thing I saw was that the land was dark, and there was this giant heart, and it was beating very slowly, like it was about to stop.  Then a great angel came with a sword, and he pierced the heart, and a deep conviction came, and the heart broke open and began to beat again.  The Lord is coming to pierce the hearts of this nation, and to convict us of our sins, so that He can heal us.  The Lord is coming as King over America.

I saw the Star, and the Lord pulled me into the star, and I saw America laid out, and a white flag with 13 black stars in a circle over America.  The 13 colony states have lost faith and that’s why they are black.  I saw each star rise up, one by one, upwards off of the flag and an angel went with each star up into the heavens.  The stars then began to bow to the Lord, they all bowed to Jesus.  God is restoring our national heart and vision to the King again.

Mary Ann:

I see a great humbling falling on this country.  I then saw a great light going to Israel, and it was shining on the nation.  The Lord showed me all the angels that are around the borders of Israel.  Then I saw a great light go to the 13 colony states in America.

I saw Jesus walking through the streets.  He was saying, “Who will see Me? Who will know Me?”  He is walking right now in America looking.  He says, “He has found favor here tonight.  Do not look at your small numbers.  Look at My Face.  Look at how you know Me.  You know My Blood and it covers you.  All who are hungry and thirsty come!  Have they woken up in New Jersey?  Have they woken up in New York City?  Who recognized My signs in the storms?  Who see’s My Hand?”

I see a great thirst coming into the church.  I see them with open mouths, with tongues that are parched in all the states and churches.  God is sending angels that is going to refresh them with the rain of the Spirit.  The rain will open them up and will satisfy them that seek Him again.  Nothing will satisfy them but the Lord.  Lord, turn us back to you, change us in this nation.  Return us back to you and to our first love.  Now, I see the Blood of Jesus covering the 13 states.

Susan:

Lord, you said that the remedy of all things is a heart change.  Pierce our hearts with your sword, Lord.  Lord, let your sword fly into every home, every church, every business, every state, every nation and bring a national awakening and heart change.  Unless we have a revelation of you, a heart change, an encounter with you, then we cannot change.  But you can change us, Lord.  Visit us.  No matter how much we want to agree and to be in unity, we cannot change unless you pierce our hearts, Lord.  If the hearts are not given to you in the home, then even the home can’t stand.  Also with the schools, the businesses, and everywhere else.  It begins with us.  We cry out for the sword of the Lord, for your standard to come again.  Cut out anything that opposes your will in us.  We recognize that without you we are nothing and will perish.  We ask that your sword would pierce every heart, every church, every group, every place, till we fully repent and are changed.  You are here for a global harvest and you are harvesting the hearts of men.  We embrace your sword and we agree with you for the Harvest.  We are brethren in this nation, and we ask that you would heal all broken relationships and bring restoration and heal the nations brokenness on every level, from cultural to governmental.  Heal the broken heart of the church and the nation.  Let your sword fall, let it come, and let your Holy Spirit govern us again according to what is written on our scroll.

We all gathered and made a fresh covenant with the Lord on behalf of our state of New York and the church tonight.

We then laid hand on the map and prayed over all 13 colony states in America.

Jesus is here, and He spoke to us:

“I am pleased.  I have heard your cry.  I have heard your cry.  I have seen your hearts before Me, and it is I, that have inspired you to pray.  I have given you the things that were on My heart for today.  I have brought great light into your nation through you today.  I say, Children, you hold the seed of faith in your hands, and through your prayers, I shall plant that seed of faith into your land again.  I shall plant that seed into good soil.  Into soil that is given wholly over to Me.  You see the beginnings of the stage of faith in Me again.  For I have set that seed into the soil of the earth, of the hearts of men and women tonight.  Tonight I give birth, and I say, faith shall sprout.  Faith shall live.  Faith shall multiply as you yield and give yourselves over to Me, I shall bring that seed into maturity.  I shall water it every day in prayer.  I shall water that seed that you have planted today with Me, and I am pleased with your sincerity.  That seed shall take deep root in your nation, for I shall watch over it.  My angels shall tend it, and you shall cultivate it in prayer with Me.  That seed shall grow into a Righteous Tree.  In the end, you shall see that tree spread out over the nations again, for it is My plan that this nation be a great tree in the earth, and you shall see it give birth.  For today, I see, the seed went into the soil again.  Today is a day in heaven, that we have waited to begin.  The angels are at attention with men, and side by side, you shall contend, and I shall guard that tree, that seed, that has been birthed by thee.  I shall guard it faithfully, and you shall tend it faithfully through prayer with Me, and together, it shall grow.  It shall grow into a great, great tree. T hough many will war against that tree, I shall stand faithfully over it, and I shall guard thee in the days ahead.  You shall not fear those things that shall come.  You shall not fear those drums that shall beat.  You shall not fear the sound of soldiers feet on your soil.  Oh, but you shall pour out Healing Oil!  You shall pour out the Oil to all nations!  You shall pour it out to Me!  You shall see that tree spread out over the earth globally.  For it is My Plan and My Purpose that I have a man, that would stand up before Me for this nation, and I have found it in you.  Today, we shall tend that tree, and that tree is true.”

“I shall speak to you.  I shall show you things to come.  I shall open My Word to you as never before.  I shall show you the things that are at your nations door.  I shall show you those things that want to come on your shore.  I shall show you those things in the middle, in the heart of your nations that want to pour.  I shall show you those things on the borders that wait to roar.  I shall show you those things in the earth and in the heavens that are a sign for destruction for your nation, but they cannot come.  I shall show you these things because you are the ones that shall pray with Me through.  You shall pray the night through, as George stood with Me, so shall you, and you shall see Me move.  You shall see My Hand prove.  You shall see Me deal.  You shall see salvation be sealed.  You shall see Me, for I am with you, saith the Lord.  I am with you, and My angels bare the sword.  My Covenant is with you.  At the Word of the Lord, you shall stand, and you shall know what to do, for I shall show you the plans of the enemy.  You shall stand and read My maps.  You shall read them in prayer.  You shall know what to do.  You shall know how to pray.  You shall know what to do, and what will usher in the way.  I will give you the words to say to rout them all.  I say, by the stars of heaven, your nation shall never fall, for I shall make a covenant, I shall have a covenant, and I have a covenant, and it is with you, and all of those that will agree with Me, that will pray and stand in unity, you shall surely see your nation’s victory.”

We all stood and said the Pledge of the Allegiance and bowed our knees to the King, Jesus.

We pray these notes will also inspire you to believe for our nations’ scroll to be fulfilled and for the faith of the Father’s to be restored in the church and in the nations again.  Our days are written in the Lord’s Books.
