In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord-“I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel.[a] I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.[b] I will say to those called ‘Not my people,[c]’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.‘” (Hosea 2:21-23; NIV)
We are in such a pivotal time for our nation. The good news is that God is forging a new way forward for us all – a freedom movement! And as long as we do our part, we can see our covenantal destiny secured.
During Passover 2017, I had an extraordinary dream. Washington, D.C. was superimposed on Israel. Jolene, myself, and a group of leaders were commissioned like Joshua and Caleb to scope out the land and possess our inheritance.
My vantage point was Tel Megiddo. Armageddon! The Jezreel Valley was below. Jezreel actually means “God sows.” Not coincidentally, the Jezreel Valley was once swamp land that had to be drained in order for biblical prophecy to be fulfilled that the valley would become a harvest field. Our rallying cry became, “Drain the swamp to secure the harvest!”
That’s how you are called to take your land in this hour.
In the dream, I could focus on an area and, with telescopic ability, view every detail with precision. I diligently searched for opposing forces. I saw none. The field was clear.
Except, that is, for a clear representation of a Jezebel spirit. I immediately turned to Jolene, pointed at her, and said, “That is witchcraft!”
In retrospect, this dream proved amazingly prophetic. For instance, it conveyed an unusual covenantal alliance between Israel and America. We had no way of knowing that President Trump would soon defy global diplomacy and, for Israel’s 70th anniversary, honor Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
We have also seen how many of the challenges faced by this administration have been sourced by a Jezebel spirit. We’ll share more on this tomorrow. God is giving vital keys to overcome!
Points for Prayer:
  • What “land” or sphere is God calling you to secure for His Kingdom this year? What are the obstacles? What is your covenant promise?
  • Do you perceive a Jezebel influence is resisting you? Your family? Your sphere of authority? Washington, DC?
  • Ask the Lord to show us how to “drain the swamp”-those things holding back our spheres of authority from their full potential. Remember the precious seeds sown even in former generations. We resound the Lord’s cry, “Drain the swamp and secure the harvest!”
