I have a vision for America. Here is how the Lord is restoring our nation, right now. From our inception, we have been blessed for three reasons: To preach the gospel, as the pilgrims' covenanted with God; to stand with Israel; and to care for impoverished nations and peoples.
Recently, in an interview, I was asked about that vision. I said, "Even in our fallen, backslidden, immoral state, we still stand as a firewall.
"As a firewall, the United States stands against demonic plans. Satan looks at America and says, 'I can't do what I want in bringing the antichrist, the beast, and world domination, as long as American freedom exists.' And when we pray, that essential knowledge must be in our mind."
I went on to say that I am calling both pastors and intercessors to recognize that we are currently at war with Satan's plans. In discussing Psalm 11:3-4, I pointed out that David's plea to the Lord assumed that the righteous are called to act, with focus on the Lord. 'Lord, what can the righteous do when the foundations are removed? God is in His temple, on His throne.'
How would David know that, unless he was staring straight at the throne of God?
In the midst of his being surrounded by enemies, David, the warrior king, always kept his eyes on the Lord―and so must the embattled believers in America.
This war must be won! The Christian righteous have dug in their heels. They're not going to compromise. That is why our thoughts are that freedom is coming because, as the sheep and the goats are being separated, the power of God will be manifested over America.
God has called us to stand with Him, to do battle beside Him! The power of the Christian faith is that anyone at any moment that says to the Lord, 'Use me,' has access to promotion, to equipping and to power. So, the fresh anointing is going to be this: People that no one had ever heard of, coming from places no one expected, will do things that people have never imagined.
Jesus said, 'I send you forth as sheep among wolves.' What is the predicable outcome for sheep who wander into a pack of wolves? Well, here's what Jesus is saying, 'That's how you look: to the world, helpless. To the world, defenseless. To the world, ineffectual. But you do not recognize that the Lion who is standing behind those sheep, staring at those wolves, is The Lion of the tribe of Judah!
I am praying for an impartation of fresh anointing over all those who are interceding for America. In Isaiah, it says:
"No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord; this is the vindication which they obtain from Me, says the Lord" (Isaiah 54:17).
We are the sons and daughters of the God of the Armies of heaven. We must shake up our thinking, we must look in the mirror and realize that we come from a legacy of supernatural power. We are destined to do impossible things. That is who we are. That is what is needed in this moment, more than anything else. That is the fresh anointing God is pouring out on His church!
