Ellen Margrete and I, after fasting with the ICZC staff, were enabled by dear friends to celebrate our birthdays on Purim eve and we had a lovely gathering in our home with many local believers.
The LORD gave me the below message. Afterwards we all entered into a wave of praise and worship. Before you click on the video, if your time allows, please read the message below.
When I perceive how many of the LORD’s servants and children of our Father in heaven are being attacked during these crucial end time days — especially those of us who because of our love for the LORD want to be a channel of comfort in His hands through His Spirit poured out in us — I realise that the Devil hates and specifically attacks those who love and stand up for Israel.
Marriages are being severely attacked, health and finances are under attack in colossal ways. Relationships ruptured and all this even to servants of the LORD who have been a long time on the road of the LORD.
The Devil hates these men and women and, as the scriptures tell us, he is going around as a roaring, blood thirsty lion even so much as to derail these servants from truly following the LORD.
The vision seen by my sister [Veronika West] about the President Donald J. Trump, clearly expresses this phenomenon:
“As I come to you today, it’s 3:00 a.m. in the morning. I have woken from a powerful dream concerning President Donald J. Trump where I was shown a great upheaval that is coming in the days ahead.
In this dream I found myself standing in a dark dungeon type place and the smell of the air in that place is hard to describe — but it was the smell of blood and of lions.
(Having been brought up as a child in wildlife conservation, I know the smell of lions). it is a smell so distinct, that it is a smell that is unmistakable…!
As I stood in that dark place, my nostrils filled with the smell (of blood and acid like tones) and I began to feel fear rise up within me.
Suddenly I saw a bright light appear round about me and an Archangel of The LORD stood before me in the dream and spoke to me saying, “Fear not, for you have been brought to this place for what is about to take place.”
As I listened, suddenly the dream shifted I was taken high above the White House, where I was shown a small open window (which faced south).
As I looked through the open window, I saw President Donald J. Trump knelt down upon his knees and looking up to heaven.
As I looked at him, I saw a great battle taking place over the land, and as I watched him cry out to The LORD, suddenly I saw the Archangel Gabriel standing above him with a flaming sword lifted high above the president’s head.
I watched as the blade of the sword touched him as if he were being knighted, and then I saw President Donald Trump stand to his feet.
Suddenly I saw a mantle fall upon him, that flowed like liquid gold. The mantle of gold covered him from head to toe and I watched as it became like a body of impenetrable armour, and the Angel of The LORD left him…!
I woke up.
As I woke up, my body my covered in sweat and I was praying so loudly in The Spirit that my son had also awoken.
As I reassured my son that all was well, I began to feel a great urgency to pray for the land of America and their President. As I began to cry out to The LORD, the atmosphere was heavy. It felt as if I was walking in thick sand.
But as I prayed and warred in The Spirit, suddenly The Spirit of God spoke to me saying, “Watch and pay attention!
Pray! Pray! Pray for the nation of America and for President Donald Trump, for it shall be like in the days of Daniel when My faithful servant was thrown into the lions den!
Watch! For they shall come together and they shall conspire with one another to destroy that which I have decreed and that which I have declared over the land.
They shall look to catch him out and they look to grab hold of him to utterly destroy him. For surely I tell you, the den has been made ready and the hungry lions now lie in wait,” says The Spirit of God.
“Watch and pray! Call a fast! For they shall come together as one from the left and from the right! Yes! There will be those who shall come from the right, who shall say, “How can this be?”
But I tell you, many hearts will be turned cold by a strong spirit of lies and deception. Yes! Even a spirit of murder dwells in the midst of them, for they have hatched a plan and they have put together a plot to overturn and overthrow that which has been established.
But listen! Stay vigilant in this hour! Watch and pray, for surely I tell you again, just as the day they threw Daniel into the lions den, so they shall they come together in great unity and authority in this day to throw a praying President into the den of hungry lions.
Tell My People, if they will look to Me and cry out to Me in this hour, I shall send My Angels of Protection into the midst of them.
Yes! Into the storm of rising lies and false accusations and into the midst of the roaring lions, and their bloodthirsty mouths shall be shut closed and that which was conceived in the womb of darkness shall not come to full term, but shall surely be fully aborted and brought to nothing,” says The Spirit of God.
“Now watch! For I stand over My Word to perform it in this hour and in this day, for the nation of America shall see My Glory and they shall see My Hand move in mighty and yet more mysterious ways in the days ahead!
For I have set My Seal upon My Servant and a mantle of kingship, and he shall become My Trumpet for Righteousness and Justice in the land and no man shall touch My Anointed and live,” says The Spirit of God.”
It is today especially those who are God’s instruments and chosen ones in the political as well as in the spiritual world who have become the Devil’s favorite targets!
We have seen it in the vicious and constant attack on Donald Trump, who has already done more for Israel than any other Prime Minister or President. We also see it in the continual attacks on Benjamin Netanyahu, the PM of Israel — like with Donald Trump — often by his own leftist leaning critics.
In fact, there seems to be a parallel between those pro-Israel political forces and persons on the political side and those of us who have come to Israel in the Name of the LORD to stand with and show God’s love to His people and their land. It is amazing.
In a way, it proves how serious the Evil One takes this issue who he so ferociously tries to attack, deceive or even conquer those who have stood with God for His people!
Therefore, I believe we need to be aware of this all and watch and pray, lest we will fall or fail ourselves in spite of the furious attacks of the Devil on our health, relationships, finances or any other issue of deception or sin.
We then, by the empowerment of the LORD by His Holy Spirit, need to take the offensive!
The Bible states that we need therefore to put on the whole armour of God (See Ephesians 6:10-15) because we are not in a battle against flesh and blood that can be won or overcome by carnal means, but are being attacked by “principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places” (See Ephesians 6:12), which need to be fought and resisted with the whole spiritual weaponry of God.
As His Word says: “Resist the Devil and He will flee from us” (Not we from him!). Thus, being strong in the LORD and the power of His Might through our shield of faith we shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the Evil One.
How appropriate therefore are the words we find in the epistle of Peter (1 Peter 5:8-11), when he writes:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
May the LORD thus inspire you to conquer by faith and His Spirit in the very battles you are facing presently yourself, I pray!
