“Watch for now I AM dealing with the Fox in the Hen House”…!
It’s late here in Ireland, but as I got into bed The Holy Spirit whispered these Words to me, ”Watch, for now I’m dealing with the Fox in the Hen House!”
As I heard those Words, The Spirit of Revelation quickened a powerful Dream to me that I shared with regard to the Fox and he spirit of Herod…!
The following word is long… I encourage you to read the following carefully and prayerfully!
“The sky is falling in…. the sky is falling in…. I must go and tell the king!”
Three days ago I had a powerful warning dream that I want to share with you all for the purpose of prayer..!!
Note: This Word is long…. So grab a coffee, or maybe a pot…. and enjoy!
So, in the early hours of the morning of the January 22, I had a powerful dream where I suddenly heard these Words, “The sky is falling in… The sky is falling in… I must go and tell the king!”
And as those words echoed in the realm of The Spirit, I immediately recognised the words, as they came from one of my all time favourite childhood stories, ”Chicken Licken” or some of you may know the story as “Chicken Little” (There are a few different versions of the story.)
But, as I heard those words, and as my heart connected with the story, suddenly I saw myself as a child sitting on the floor at the feet of a story teller in what looked like a peaceful library type setting.
As I looked at myself as a child in the dream, I heard these Words, “A simple child-like Faith is required for uncertain and challenging times.”
Now as those words resounded loudly and clearly in my spirit, I watched the story teller turn to the first page of the story book and he began to read….
Page 1… Now as the story of Chicken Licken began to unfold in the dream, my eyes were drawn to the picture on the first page of the story, where I saw Chicken Licken standing under a beautiful big acorn tree — when suddenly a small acorn falls on her head.
As the acorn fell upon her head, Chicken Licken gets a terrible fright, and, not knowing what had just happened, she begins to run around in circles shouting, “The sky is falling in, the sky is falling in, I must go and tell the king!”
Page 2… Chicken Licken begins her journey to find the king to tell him ‘the sky is falling in’, when she comes upon her friend the hen (Henny Penny) and the hen asks Chicken Licken why she is so distressed and where she is going.
Chicken Licken tells Henny Penny that the sky is falling in and that she must go and tell the king. So, hearing the distress of Chicken Licken, the hen says that she knows where to find the king and that she would go with her to tell the king that terrible disaster is about to take place — ’The sky is falling in!’
So off Chicken Licken and Henny Penny go to find the king… When….
Page 3… Suddenly they see Ducky Lucky and he is swimming in the pond, and Ducky Lucky asks why they are both so upset and where they are going.
So the chicken and the hen begin to tell the duck that the sky is falling in and that they have to quickly find the king and tell him of the impending doom and disaster.
On hearing their distress, Ducky Lucky declares that he knows where to find the king and that he will take them to the king. So off the chicken, the hen and the duck go to find the king to tell him of the imminent danger.
Page 4… So we see the chicken, hen and duck running to find the king, when they come across the cockerel who is standing on the farm gate doing his thing. And Cocky Lockey sees the panic on the faces of his friends and inquires what the problem is.
Ducky Lucky begins to tell the cockerel that the sky fell on Chicken Licken’s head and that they are on the way to tell the king that the sky is surely falling in.
On hearing their story and seeing the fearful faces of his friends, Cocky Lockey says that he will show them the way to the king. And so the chicken, hen, and duck follow the cockerel to find the king.
Page 5… So as the page turns, I now see the four friends racing ahead to find the king to tell him the sky is surely falling in.
Now as I looked at the picture in the book, suddenly I hear The Spirit say these Words to me, “Watch and Pray, for the power of your agreement can command a blessing or establish a curse!”
Now as I heard those words, suddenly the dream shifts and I see the story of Joshua and Caleb and the 10 spies come up before me in the dream, and The Spirit of Revelation begins to show me a powerful prophetic parallel, where I see Joshua and Caleb go into the land of Canaan with the 10 spies.
When they return from spying out the land, it’s only Joshua and Caleb who come back with a Good Report, while the other ten spies come back with a Bad Report.
When the nation of Israel hear the Bad Report from the 10 spies and the size of the giants in the land, their faith quickly begins to fail them and their hearts are filled with fear.
But, Joshua and Caleb try desperately to exhort and encourage the nation with words of Life and Victory over the giants, but the hearts and minds of the nation cannot be changed.
Though many want to believe The Good Report, the power of the agreement of the ten spies causes the lies of the enemy to gain greater momentum and authority in their ‘crossing over’ moment, and so the spirit of fear and unbelief overtakes them all.
Doubt and double mindedness gets a foothold through the Bad Report and the strong agreement of the ten spies, and the nations looses faith, hope and expectation.
Their ears become deafened to God’s promises and their eyes become blind to the visions and dreams they once held to so tightly, and in spite of the bold and courageous Good Report of Joshua and Caleb, tragically the nation chooses rather to align with the lies of fear and intimidation.
As a result, the children of Israel loose their inheritance!
Now as I’m seeing and receiving this Revelation in the dream, suddenly I hear The Spirit say, “Who’s Report will you believe? Will you choose disaster or divine deliverance, revival or total ruin, war or full victory?”
Page 6… And as I heard those Words, I see the page of the story book turn again, and I see a picture of the chicken, hen, duck, and cockerel and they have now come across their friend, the turkey.
Turkey Lurkey can be seen gobbling in the field but when he sees all his friends in a great hurry, he asks what all the fuss is about, and the cockerel, with the help of all the other animals, begins to tells the story of the disaster that’s coming, and that they need to tell the king that the sky is falling in.
The turkey then also becomes very fearful like the rest, and he pushes his way through the fence, and he tells his frantic friends that he knows the way to the king, and so they all begin to follow after the turkey.
Page 7… And so the story continues… All the animals can be seen running in a long line following after the turkey, and with dust filling the air from all the animals running as quickly as their feet could carry them to find the king.
Suddenly, the animals see their friends Goosey Loosey and Gander Lander who are taking a walk with their 5 little goslings.
The goose, and the gander and their five little goslings stop to ask where they are all going in such a hurry, and the turkey says that the sky is falling in and that they must tell the king.
And so hearing the terrifying story from the turkey and seeing all the other animals in such distress, Goosey Loosey, Gander Lander and their five little fluffy goslings all decide they too must find the king, to tell him that the sky is falling in.
Page 8… I see a picture of the sun shining. The sky is full of big beautiful clouds and the birds are in the trees singing and spring time is in the air.
But all the animals are seen running with great speed across the hillside and the five little fluffy goslings trying desperately to keep up with the fast pace of all the other animals, when suddenly the animals see Foxy Loxy, who, unbeknown to the panic stricken friends, the fox is out hunting for his breakfast and with three hungry young fox cubs back at the den.
The fox is on the prowl (but as I looked at the picture of the fox in the dream, suddenly, I heard these Words, “Watch and Pray, for a Demonic Invasion comes before Divine Intervention!”
Page 9… After hearing those Words, my eyes are drawn back to the book, and Foxy Loxy is lounging on a big old rock soaking up the warm sun, just catching the breeze when he asks the animals, where they are going, on such a beautiful sunny day.
I can see the five little goslings trying to snuggle and hide under the safety of their mothers wing, as they seem to sense danger in the fox.
But all the other animals seem oblivious to any threat and begin to tell Foxy Loxy that the ‘sky is falling in, the sky is falling in’, and that they have to go and find the king, for the king will know what to do.
But as Foxy Loxy listens, his mind is on other things and he can’t but help but to lick his lips as he starts to think about the tasty meal that he’s going be enjoying soon!
Page 10… But as Foxy Loxy is seen licking his lips and listening to the story that the sky is falling in, Foxy Loxy tells the animals that he has a quick short cut and that he knows where the king is and if they follow him they will get to the king before the sky falls in.
So all the animals, overwhelmed by the threat of the sky falling in, they all agree to go with Foxy Loxy and they can be seen following the fox down a narrow little path through the woods.
Now as I was looking at the picture of Foxy Loxy as he was leading all the animals down the narrow little path into the dark woods, the dream suddenly shifts again and I heard these words, “Go tell Herod, that fox…” and immediately The Spirit of Revelation speaks me in the dream saying, “Watch! For the spirit of Herod seeks to kill, steal and destroy, at the time of the birthing of a Greater Kingdom Destiny of a Nation!”
As I heard those Words, I looked again at the picture of Foxy Loxy in the story book and I hear these words, “Fox News… and the prophets of Baal”
And as I heard those words….
Page 11… Suddenly my eyes look back at the book and I see the picture of Foxy Loxy and all the animals following closely behind him, and they being led deeper and deeper into the dark woods…
Page 12… But then suddenly as the page turns again, I see that one of the animals, Cocky Lockey suddenly catches a glimpse of the fox’s den ahead, and he sees the three hungry young foxes that are lying in wait.
Cocky Lockey lets out a loud ‘Cock-a-doodle-doo’ to warn all the animals of the danger ahead, but before the animals know what is happening, the three hungry young foxes pounce upon the unsuspecting animals, and as feathers and fur going flying into the air, all the fowls can be seen scattering in different directions.
Then, I heard these Words in The Spirit Realm, “Watch! For the hungry foxes have been set among the fearful fowls…”.
As I heard those Words, The Spirit of Revelation quickened a scripture verse to me in the dream,
“for the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me,” Job 3:25.
Page 13… And as the story teller turns to the next page, I see that Chicken Licken and Cocky Lockey are running out of the dark woods as fast as their little feet and feathers could carry them, and with their eyes on the king’s castle, not to far in the distance, they hurriedly make their way there.
Page 14… I see, the king sitting upon his royal throne with a shiny gold crown on his head, and poor Chicken Licken and Cocky Lockey are standing trembling before the king, both looking much worse for wear.
The king tries to calm them down, and asks the chicken to tell him what the problem is. Chicken Licken goes on to tell the king that the sky is falling in, “The sky is falling in!” and as the king listens, he stops and asks Chicken Licken a question.
The king says, “Chicken Licken, where were you when the sky was falling in?”
Chicken Licken says, “I was eating under the acorn tree.” and the king gives out a great big belly laugh and says to Chicken Licken, “Oh, Chicken Licken, don’t be so afraid! The sky is not falling in, it was only a small acorn that fell on your head…”
Now as I look at the last picture in the book, of the ‘king laughing as the lie was exposed and the truth was now plain to see’, and how the king’s belly wobbled like jelly, as Chicken Licken told him about the impending disaster, and of how the ‘sky was falling in’, suddenly, I heard The Spirit say, “Ha! The LORD laughs in the heavens!”
Immediately ‘Psalm 2 and Psalm 37’ were quickened to me in the dream, and it says, in Psalm 37:12-13 —“the wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but The LORD laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.”
(I strongly encourage you to read all of Psalm 37 and Psalm 2… It’s “a now” word for the season!)
Now as I came out of that childhood dream, I immediately began to write down all that I had heard and saw in the dream, and as I began to pray concerning the different aspects of the dream, The Holy Spirit began to highlight a few more prophetic parallels to me, that I believe speaks to the hour we find ourselves in.
1. First, ”A simple child-like Faith is required for uncertain and challenging seasons”
I believe The LORD is calling The Body of Christ to have a child-like faith in this hour…. (Not a childish faith… but a child-like faith.)
“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3-4.
The point here is humility.
2. Warning: “Who’s Report will you believe? Watch and Pray, for the power of your agreement can command a blessing or establish a curse”
This is a powerful warning, and a warning that we must take very seriously in this critical hour.
Let us guard our hearts and indeed our mouths from coming into agreement with lies/ falsehoods, but with the Truth of God’s Word which is His Will.
Let us be like Joshua and Caleb in this hour. Men and women of a different spirit who will arise in Holy Ghost boldness and courage to confront the lies of the enemy and to refuse to accept the report of failure and defeat.
Let us become as the violent who will take The Kingdom by force and let us advance in faith to take our Promised Land!
“America… you do not want to wait another forty years before you take your inheritance!”
3. “Demonic Invasion comes before Divine Intervention!”
The sudden appearance of Foxy Loxy in the story, is prophetically telling. This fox spirit/ Herod spirit, is a lurking spirit, a prowling spirit that seeks to kill, steal and destroy at the moment of birthing and breakthrough.
”Watch! For the spirit of Herod seeks to kill, steal and destroy at the time of the birthing of a greater kingdom destiny of a Nation…..”
Recently I made reference as a Prophetic Warning of this powerful lurking spirit when I saw a fox running across the grounds of The White House. See HKP Word “A Fox in The White House“.
If we look at the time of the birth of Jesus when king Herod sent out his wise men to seek out the location of the baby king — under the deceptive lie that he wanted to come and celebrate the birth of Jesus — yet Herod had murder on his mind.
Here we see this powerful Herod spirit operating under the cover of darkness, but God gives Joseph a warning dream and Joseph and Mary flee to another land!
Prophetically, I believe we are seeing this same Herod spirit in operation over the nation of America and indeed many other nations that are on the threshold of the greatest awakening and harvest that the world has ever seen!
4. The Herod spirit in operation through the media.
in the dream I heard the Words, “Fox News and the prophets of Baal.”
We have seen in recent days an unprecedented demonic attack working through the media. Like a well oiled machine, this demonic invasion has been highly coordinated and strategically targeted to bring about maximum destruction to the Plans and Purposes of God’s Kingdom in the earth!
Unfortunately, just like in the simple story in the dream where all the fear filled animals, we have totally bought into the deception and the lies that the chicken had believed, that the sky is falling in.
There are so many in this hour who have believed the lies and deceptions that have been spoken through the mouths of the prophets of Baal… the Media!
As I continued to pray, The Holy Spirit showed me great example of the Herod spirit in operation in the story of Nehemiah, and, just like The Media, we see how through the mouths of the ammonites they to sought to dismantle what God was building by distracting and discouraging the builders
See Nehemiah 4:3 which says, “Tobiah the Ammonite, who was beside him, said, “if even a fox were to climb up on what they are building, it would break down their wall of stones.””
Again we see the fox being mentioned. This is not a coincidence, but rather it’s prophetically symbolic of the Herod spirit at work.
We see again that at a key time when Nehemiah is called to rebuild the wall, and as soon as the rebuilding of the wall begins, so the Herod spirit shows up.
Here we see a Demonic Invasion coming through the mouths of the Ammonites. It’s a strategic demonic attack that comes to distract, discourage, derail and ultimately destroy the progress to rebuild the wall.
But, Nehemiah is wise! He resists this Herod spirit and he sets up reinforcements on the wall; he sets up armed watchmen on the wall day and night to protect the rebuilding of the wall.
Lets read Nehemiah 4. It’s very powerful and speaks prophetically to what is taking place in this hour in the nation of America!
Opposition to the rebuilding.
“When Sanballat heard that we were rebuilding the wall, he became angry and was greatly incensed. He ridiculed the Jews, and in the presence of his associates and the army of Samaria, he said, “What are those feeble Jews doing? Will they restore their wall? Will they offer sacrifices? Will they finish in a day? Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble burned as they are?”
Tobiah the Ammonite, who was at his side, said, “What they are building — even a fox climbing up on it would break down their wall of stones!”
Hear us, our God, for we are despised. Turn their insults back on their own heads. Give them over as plunder in a land of captivity. Do not cover up their guilt or blot out their sins from your sight, for they have thrown insults in the face of the builders.
So we rebuilt the wall till all of it reached half its height, for the people worked with all their heart. But when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites and the people of Ashdod heard that the repairs to Jerusalem’s walls had gone ahead and that the gaps were being closed, they were very angry. They all plotted together to come and fight against Jerusalem and stir up trouble against it. But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.
Meanwhile, the people in Judah said, “The strength of the laborers is giving out, and there is so much rubble that we cannot rebuild the wall.”
Also our enemies said, “Before they know it or see us, we will be right there among them and will kill them and put an end to the work.”
Then the Jews who lived near them came and told us ten times over, “Wherever you turn, they will attack us.”
Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember The LORD, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work.
From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half were equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers posted themselves behind all the people of Judah who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked. But the man who sounded the trumpet stayed with me.
Then I said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “The work is extensive and spread out, and we are widely separated from each other along the wall. Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our god will fight for us!”
So we continued the work with half the men holding spears, from the first light of dawn till the stars came out. At that time I also said to the people, “Have every man and his helper stay inside Jerusalem at night, so they can serve us as guards by night and as workers by day.” Neither I nor my brothers nor my men nor the guards with me took off our clothes; each had his weapon, even when he went for water.” Nehemiah 4:1-22.
This is such a powerful chapter and demonstrates so clearly the destructive nature of the Herod spirit and how it’s only aim and objective is to bring destruction and death to the Kingdom Destiny of a nation(s), and it gives some powerful prayer strategies for the hour!
5. Heed God’s warnings before its too late!
In this hour we need The Spirit of Discernment and Wisdom like never before. We need to be ones who can see and discern accurately the times and the seasons we are living in, before its too late, just like in the story, when Cocky Lockey suddenly catches a glimpse of the fox’s den ahead and he sees the three hungry young foxes that are lying in wait and he lets out a loud ‘Cock-a-doodle-doo’.
But — it’s too little too late, for some who have already thrown caution to the wind and have been caught up with the power of lies and falsehoods.
In this hour, we must heed God’s warnings and be bold to act and obey immediately.
I believe God is calling for new levels of obedience and surrender in this hour, just like Joseph, when God gave him a warning in a dream of king Herod who had murder on his mind.
Joseph believed the dream, obeyed God and fled.
I submit that in this season, many will begin to receive and see dreams and visions that will warn of the great dangers ahead. So let’s be like Joseph that when we receive those warnings, we must obey God!
Let’s not be like the animals in the story who blindly followed after the fox and did not stop to take stock of what was actually happening around about them!
6. Partnering with fear creates a gateway.
“Watch! For the hungry foxes have been set among the fearful fowls…”
It’s so important in this hour of great uncertainty, confusion, trial and even tribulation that we do not partner with the spirit of fear, intimidation and control that is operating through the Herod spirit.
When we come into agreement with the spirits fear, intimidation and control, it creates a portal, a gateway, it gives legal permission for these evil spirits to traffic in our lives and to fully accomplish their demonic assignments of destruction in our families, Churches and in our nation(s). e.g. ”For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me!” Job 3:25.
7. “Then the king laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.”
At the end of the story we see how the dangers of believing and coming into agreement with deceptive lies and falsehoods will ultimately bring forth death and more destruction.
If we follow after the opinions of men and do not hold to The Wisdom of God, we will be eventually destroyed.
Check out Psalm 37:12-13 which was quickened to me in the dream, where it says,
“The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but The LORD laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.”
I hear The Spirit say, “Many are following after those who have a chicken mindset. A mindset of fear, unbelief and defeat, and like the ten spies, they will not enter into the land to take possession of their inheritance.
But listen! For I AM calling for a people in this hour who will Hear, Heed and Obey My Word, who will hold fast to My Promises.
For in this hour, in the midst of the storm that is raging, I AM calling for My Eagles to take flight; those who will have the Faith to leave the confinement of the chicken coup; those who have their true identity established in the Truth of who I say that they are.
For those who wait upon Me will rise up on the Wings of Eagles, they will walk and not grow weary and they will run and not faint. These are My Joshuas and Calebs who carry a different spirit.
For surely these are the brave-hearts who will crossover and take possession of their promised land”
Lastly I wanted to share this; “This Herod spirit is running rampant in the Church in this hour to divide and conquer the unity and honour among God’s People!”
As I was praying and meditating on all The LORD was revealing, I was led again to the story of Haman and Esther and how Haman, like Herod the fox, had murder on his mind for Mordecai, and how Haman had built the gallows to have Mordecai hang upon them.
Haman organised a feast with the intention to make a public spectacle of Mordecai, but know that God not only reversed — but also exposed — the hidden plan and plot of the enemy, and Haman was hung upon his own gallows.
Now as I looked again at this powerful story, The Spirit of Revelation showed me that Mordecai represents The Ministry of The Holy Spirit, and that the Herod spirit is working through The Media, the Politicians and — dare I say — even the Church, to make a public spectacle of The Ministry of The Holy Spirit.
There are many in the Church who have played a part in building and constructing the gallows for the hanging of many who have stood for and with, The Word of The LORD.
This Herod spirit is running rampant in the Church in this hour to divide and conquer the unity and honour among God’s People.
This Herod spirit/ fox is a sly and subtle spirit, a powerful devious and deceptive spirit operating at the highest levels of the Church.
We see this spirit always manifesting when a Church or a Nation is at a moment of ‘birthing’. Take a look at Jacob and Esau and how this same devious Herod spirit was working under the cover of deception and darkness to blind the eyes of Jacob, so that the birthright and destiny could be stolen.
This I believe, is what is taking place right now in the Church and in the Nation(s)!
America, I hear The Spirit say, “To my righteous Remnant Warriors in America, I say to you, it’s time to rise up and take your stand in the Governmental Power and Authority that I have laid upon your shoulders, and deal a death blow to the Herod spirit that seeks to kill, steal and destroy the destiny and birthright of this Nation.
I say again, it’s time to look and look again, for many are now being lead into a trap where the spirits of destruction and death lay in wait.
America, It’s time to raise your voices and sound the alarm, for many are sleeping and have now come into agreement with the lies of this fox spirit, and many have been carried away by a strong current of fear, intimidation and control in My Church.
Their ears have become deaf to the truth of My Word and their eyes have become blind to the vision I have set before them.
America I say, hold fast to Faith, Hope and Expectation in this hour and season and do not be afraid or swayed by the many voices that speak a Bad Report that ‘the sky is falling in’!
But, I say, Listen and listen again for the Good Report of great Victory and Vindication in the midst of you, for have I not said and did I not promise that I will be with you and never forsake you?
Now watch, as My Hand of Mercy makes a way where there seems no way!
America! Therefore, do not become like those who stood in the valley of decision and chose to align and come into agreement with the Bad Report of the ten unbelieving spies.
For surely I tell you, I laugh in the heavens at the size of the giants, for they are no match against for the size of your God!
America, America I call you the land of the free and home of the brave.
America, it’s time to come forth from the darkness of the tomb. Arise and shake off the grave clothes of death, and put on the Garments of Praise, for My Resurrection Power has now come upon you.
America, it’s time to Arise, Shine, for My Glory has risen upon you and all nations will be drawn to the brightness of your rising!”
Blessings to you all.
