Stand against the spirit ravaging America!



I had an interesting dream last night, but one that woke me up shaking.

When I awoke, It seemed to me that there was a lot of spiritual activity going on in the atmosphere.  I really don’t like writing these kinds of dreams, but feel it is a necessity since my husband mentioned the same name as soon as I woke up, because it was in the news.

Here goes, I dreamed that I was being raped by Hitler.  In the dream the people that were standing around were both silent and docile.  The definition of docile is defined as a passive person or thing.

I believe that the Lord showed me this morning through my Husband’s words along with this dream that I represented America.

I believe that those standing around docile were the church who is in authority, but are not taking it right now.  Those who are not speaking out or up for what is being done here in the USA.

I believe that this same spirit that took over in Nazi Germany is now trying to take over this Country and ravage the nation and kill every bit of Faith in Jesus Christ that we have in America!


During Spring Break, we saw the horrible pictures of a woman being raped by two men on the beach while others just passively stood by as if nothing were happening.

I believe that this was a prophetic warning of our country and those in the church that are standing by having their fun while watching the country being raped by men drunk with power and with no one but themselves in mind.

As many of you read last night I heard the Lord screaming,  “WAKE UP”  (You can read on my Facebook Timeline.)  but Now with this dream, I believe God is trying to get us to come to action to begin to arise and speak out but also to come into corporate intercession even beyond “The National Day Of Prayer.”

I believe this is going to take prayer like we have never done in our lives because it has to do with the lives of us and our children but most of all the Life of a Nation!!


God so wants this country to turn around that He has called other nations to pray and fast for us.  Many of you joined them when they prayed but it is time to continue.  This is not a warning from the Lord,  this is Him saying it is upon you!  it is time to take a stand!  This is not a war against flesh and blood, we are dealing with ancient principalities, BUT I DECREE TODAY THAT THIS COUNTRY BELONGS TO THE LORD!


The Lord gave me Psalms 24 a while back and said as i was reading this verse 1:24.  The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.  He then spoke and said in a very forceful voice with the emphasis on “IS”  The earth “IS” the Lord’s.

Then He led me through the rest of the chapter and said they that ascend to the Hill (promotion) of the Lord will be those that seek His face in this hour, and they will take back and decree that, “THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S!

He said that we are the Gates that either let in or keep out what comes into our country and as long as we keep silent the enemy will have his way!  Read the rest of Psalm 24.  It is time to get up, to stand up, and begin to decree what thus saith the Lord!!


As we begin to stand up and decree what we see heaven doing, it is then that this king of glory will enter into this country again.  It is then that the Lord of hosts (heaven’s armies) will come in and rescue America once again, but look, these are the people who have clean hands and a pure heart.

In other words, they have not conformed to what the world is doing!

They have not accepted what the enemy is trying to do in this land, but are lifting up their heads to the ways of the Lord!

Then they are becoming the gates of the Glory!  The gates for the King to rule in their land!  The word ‘Arise’ in Isaiah 60 means to stand in a hostile sense and decree against what the enemy is doing in your life!  It is time to Arise and Shine!

  1. First, I want to tell you that Jesus teaches me so much through your witness that, even though we have not met in person, I tend to think of you as a big sister in Christ. Thank you for all that you share and for your life of passionate and loving service to Jesus and to His Body.

    Secondly, I want to tell you that last night I also had nightmares; I had two. It is rare that I ever have nightmares at all. To have two in one night is peculiar indeed.

    I won’t describe them in detail, but they were right in line with yours in a startling way. After the first one, I woke up and began immediately praying. I prayed the 23rd Psalm, the Lord’s prayer and also from the 24th Psalm- that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

    I have been reading the 24th, 23rd and 25th Psalm almost on a daily basis lately. After I prayed, I was drawn into the calm, loving presence of Jesus and rested and fell back asleep and then had the second nightmare, and I prayed all over again and again was drawn into the peaceful and loving presence of Jesus and fell asleep until morning.

    I agree with you in Christ that we must rise and shine in Him- I believe very strongly that we must rise above the confusion that is seen at a certain level and stand instead as beloved sons and daughters of God beside Him and look from His perspective as Lord of lords and King of kings, having all authority and complete victory.

    We do not have to declare this by might or by strength, but through the Holy Spirit. We declare it freely, joyfully and with certainty because it is already true.

    “The word of the Lord holds true, and everything He does is worthy of our trust. He loves whatever is just and good, and His unfailing love fills the earth.” Psalm 33:4-5

    “…And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,

    Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],

    Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.

    And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church],

    Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].”

    Ephesians 1:19-23, AMP

  2. 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 (NKJV)
    Glory Only in the Lord
    26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence. 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”

    Numbers 14:21 (NKJV)
    21 but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord—
