A testimony of Intercession
It was 2:10 a.m. and I had only been asleep for 2 hours. i woke up abruptly, feverish and feeling a heavy burden of The LORD on me.
I lay there for a few seconds, closed my eyes and waited, asking The Father if He really wanted me to get up.
Not even a second after that thought, my little dog jumped up and let out one loud bark — highly unusual. She was looking at the bathroom door, and I had a sense an angel was waiting for me to get up.
After going to my War Room to pray, a heavy burden of intercession began in earnest.
Watchmen Arise! It’s Time to Drain the Swamp!
The LORD was crying out for more watchmen who would be faithful and get out of their slumber, shake off their sleepiness and comfort, and start declaring the Word of The LORD.
He wants us to remain at our post and unite in the Spirit.
He was highlighting that He wants to ‘drain the swamp’, so the enemy is exposed, and to reveal the hidden secrets of the evil one.
The enemy is attacking many people in leadership and those who are destined to become leaders.
The burden was great on me to pray for 3 major world leaders. All were being attacked at that moment and I had to release words over them in the Spirit to protect them and call forth their destiny.
I started to call forth the ILLEGAL things being brought against them, false accusations, evil plans to take them out.
I physically endured pain while interceding, unable to kneel because of the pain in my knees. Fire burned in my back and kidneys; intense pain wracked my body.
The battle was intense during this intercession and when it was over, as quickly as it came, I went back to bed, spent, but mostly pain free.
The time I had woken up was 2:10 am. The Spirit highlighted Hebrews 2:10*
“All things were made through Whom all things are, when He led many sons into Glory, the Prince of their salvation was perfected through suffering.”
All of a sudden I understood that through suffering, we are being perfected and being led into Glory.
To take up the burden of The LORD and suffer through physical attacks on the body, especially through intercession, is actually making us become more like Christ.
I went back to bed and dreamt a very intense dream. In it I was listening to an evangelist speaking over the internet. He seemed credible as he was giving his testimony.
I remember thinking, “Maybe he is okay after all…” My vision zoomed in on a piece of paper in the corner of his couch and on it words were written in bold capital letters.
At the same time I was reading them, a voice behind me spoke them out loud, “Reckless and indecent exposure!”
Then the scene changed to what was really taking place in this man’s home. What I observed, represented him prostituting himself with Jezebel.
He was, outwardly to the world, a Christian who taught and preached. But at home, he was fooling around with the opposite spirit.
As I saw this, I began to speak out loud in The Spirit and brand new language pouring out of me, crying out from The Father’s heart.
The Spirit interceded through me and at that moment I was being used as His Voice piece to declare what He wanted spoken out loudly in this earthly realm, in order for His Will to be accomplished.
God is going to reveal and expose the hidden things that people think He doesn’t really see or care about.
This is a call to get our lives in order and in alignment with the holiness and purity of God. There can’t be any lukewarmness, He is calling for people on fire for Him.
He would rather have us hot or cold, but not with a foot in both worlds. If we are not totally for Him, we are against Him.
Even as “spyware” is increasing in the natural world, God has His own spyware, His prophets.
Secret sins will be exposed for all the world to see, especially for those who are called to be shepherds and have a flock that they are leading astray by the way they live.
Just as The LORD will expose what we, His children need to get rid of, He is going to expose the corrupt hidden agendas of the enemy, in many areas of the world.
The swamp is being drained, and He will shine the light on the evil things in order for a cleansing to take place.
Prophets will be used to see in The Spirit what can’t be seen in the natural. Hidden secrets will come into the light and be exposed.
But He is calling for more Watchmen who are willing to take the post of Intercessor, Prophet and Watchman and cry out what He is speaking from His Throne.
Purify and cleanse us LORD! Remove every speck of sin and dirt in us. Wash us pure and white and may we be a reflection of You here on earth.
May we be the pure and holy vessels You can use to bring in Your heavenly Kingdom!
“He reveals the deep and secret things, He knows that is in the darkness, and the light swells with Him,” Daniel 2:22*
“But I have against you that you do not hinder the woman Jezebel, the one who calls herself a prophet and she is teaching and deceiving My servants so they commit fornication and eat meat offered to idols. And I gave her time so that she could repent, but she does not want to repent from her idolatry. Behold I am casting her and those who commit adultery with her into a bed in great torment, unless they would repent from her deeds. And I shall put her children to death, in eternal death. And all the congregations will know that I AM the One Who examines minds and hearts, and I shall give to each one of you according to your deeds,” Revelation 2:18-23*
“He, the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the Creation of God, says these things: I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. Because you are lukewarm in this way and neither hot nor cold, I am going to spew you out of my mouth,” Revelation 3:15*
