As I write this it is early morning, Monday July 18, 2016. The Lord showed me a vision of a formless dark demonic spirit that moved like a cloud of black smoke. It began to take form like a large black cat and pounced on me. I reached into my night stand, pulled out a gun and shot it in the head seven times, killing it, and the vision was over.
As I prayed, asking the Lord to explain the vision to me, He said, "This is a spirit of assassination and murder that will try to pounce on the Republican National Convention, on the police officers, Donald Trump and the convention attendees. Tell my people to fast and pray for seven days using warfare prayers to take out this black cat murderous spirit."
It's with humility and boldness I share this with you today and ask you to fast and pray this week through Sunday evening. We have been given authority through Christ to rule and reign with Him and "occupy" until He comes. I encourage you to participate with at least a partial fast and a dedicated 15-30 minutes of prayer each day. Pray Psalm 90 and Psalm 35, speak it out into the air over Cleveland and over our nation. Pray and bind these demonic spirits and break the assignment and attack. Pray that Jesus, the Lord of Hosts, and the angelic armies of heaven would invade our nation, specifically Cleveland, Ohio and fight against those who fight against the plans and purposes of God. In the beginning the world was without form and void. It was chaos and disorder. God spoke and divine order was established. I believe it will take the church declaring God's voice, God's Word, to realign our nation, bring order and release a new beginning, a great awakening. God loves America the beautiful and we must partner with God and do our part as the warriors of God. These are crucial times where we will partner and co-labor with God to release the turn-around that God has promised. We are at a tipping point and a turning point in America, and the Church will determine whether this battle is fought in the Spirit or in the natural. We do not need any more blood spilled on our land. It's time for God's warriors to pray powerful prayers.
Read Joel 3:9-21. God is waking the mighty warriors of God in our nation for His plans and purposes to be established in this generation. It is our time for Victory!
