On a recent night, I had a vivid and urgent dream that I have been stirred in my spirit to share. I believe this dream is an intercessory key for us to stand together and contend, praying direct and targeted prayers for the United States of America, President Trump and the Midterm Elections. This dream is powerfully prophetic, pointing to a coming fall of the giants in the land.
In 1 Timothy 1, Paul exhorts his spiritual son Timothy to hold tight to the prophecies spoken over his life, and in verse 19 he writes, "With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience. For there are many who reject these virtues and are now destitute of the true faith…" (TPT). I want to empower you with this truth: Prophecy is a weapon to wage war with.
The prophetic words spoken over our lives individually, and over our nations are a spiritual weapon to seize and decree until we see them take effect in the natural. We have the privilege of decreeing the Word of the Lord over situations and then watching His glory manifest through our partnership with His spoken Word. I encourage you to seize hold of this prophetic dream for the mountain of media, for the president of the US, and for the nations who have been under the siege of the media.
A Peculiar Ceremony
"Without the Spirit of the Lord, it is virtually impossible to determine what truth actually is, which is why it is imperative for Christians to be spending daily time in the Word with the Holy Spirit to truly be able to "see" what is taking place."
In the dream, I was standing on the second floor in the middle of the White House and I was praying. There were many people rushing to and fro all around me and they were hurriedly making their way outside to join a ceremony that was about to begin. From where I was standing, I was able to clearly see the south lawn where many people were gathered to take part. I then heard the sound of trumpets as they heralded in the beginning of this ceremony. The atmosphere was electric with excitement.
Intrigued, I slowly began making my way to the balcony that overlooked the lawn to observe the ceremony. (Having never been in the White House before, and as an Aussie who does not have a whole lot of knowledge pertaining to the White House, I had to look up which balcony I saw in my dream and found that it was the Truman Balcony.) As I looked over the Truman balcony, I watched on as the ceremony began and I recognized it was one of celebration. Strangely enough, though, I quickly realized what it was all about. Two very prominent talk-show hosts were front and center, and they were in prison uniforms with handcuffs tied to their hands. This ceremony was their sentencing.
At that moment, I heard a loud and audible voice booming from Heaven, "Let My justice prevail." I continued to watch this ceremony as a list of their convictions were read, detailing their many offenses and the sentence that was to follow. The odd thing was, this was a celebration, but as the sentencing went on for quite some time, my eyes were drawn to the two talk-show hosts and I began weeping for them. I suddenly felt the heart of the Father for them and in this dream, I began to intercede on their behalf.
As the long list of their offenses were continuing to be read, I felt excitement that their tyranny was now at a close, yet at the same time, I felt deep sadness for them as individuals. I was able to recognize that they had simply been puppets at the hand of the enemy and so I wept for them. They both looked my way and stared directly into my eyes, I could sense their grief over the sentence. I then watched as this ceremony came to a close and there was an uproarious celebration as the people cried out in one accord: "The moguls have fallen! The moguls have fallen!"
As I woke up and sought the Father for the interpretation of this dream, I immediately turned in Scripture to Isaiah 48:14-16 in the amplified. It says, "Assemble yourselves, all of you, and hear! Who among them [the gods and Chaldean astrologers] has foretold these things? The Lord has loved him [Cyrus of Persia]; he will do His pleasure and purpose on Babylon, and his arm will be against the Chaldeans. I, even I, have foretold it; yes, I have called him [Cyrus]; I have brought him, and the Lord shall make his way prosperous. Come near to me and listen to this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it happened, I was there..." (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
The Media Mountain of Babylon
Immediately, I understood what it all meant. I want to first highlight above all else, there is a key in the first sentence of that Scripture. It is a charge of the Lord to us, the Church: "Assemble yourselves, ALL of you!" It is a charge of unity to come together as one and pray and listen to what the Father is speaking, putting aside our differences and agendas for the sake of His agenda. The Chaldean astrologers in the Scripture above represent the two talk show hosts, or the media mountain, which is also "Babylon." Note how the Father asks them, "Who among them has foretold these things?" Though the media "predicts" they cannot see what the Father is doing.
The fact that there were two talk show hosts in my dream conveys another insight. The number two in Hebrew means division and separation. Prophetically speaking, I believe this could signify that there will be a division between media giants that will cause their very downfall. A separation of the ranks, so to speak, will break their associations and agreements. And just as Jehoshaphat watched his enemies fight amongst themselves, we will begin to watch as their own confusion they have caused will descend within their walls.
In Isaiah 22:22, it says, "And the key of the House of David I will lay upon His shoulder; so He shall open, and non shall shut, and He shall shut, and non shall open." Up until now, the media have "perceived" that they have all power and authority – opening and closing doorways to whomever they choose – silencing whomever they wish, but this is about to be exposed and come crashing down as the Father is decreeing from the heavens, "Let My justice prevail!" Nothing and no one can stand in His way, nor silence Him and His people. The media does not hold the key of the house of David. The name Babylon literally means "confusion (by mixing)." The media today, as we well know, mixes a measure of "truth" with lies, bringing forth widespread confusion.
"I want to empower you with this truth: Prophecy is a weapon to wage war with."
Without the Spirit of the Lord, it is virtually impossible to determine what truth actually is, which is why it is imperative for Christians to be spending daily time in the Word with the Holy Spirit to truly be able to "see" what is taking place. These media moguls are possessed with the mindset of the enemy to rob truth and peace from the hearts of the nations, twisting mindsets with their lies, and then gripping them in a tight hold of possession. Remember though, we are not warring against them, but the principalities behind them. We need to remember who the true enemy is and take our battle up higher.
"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Ephesians 6:12)
Babylon Will Fall
Lance Wallnau first prophesied that President Trump would be as a modern-day Cyrus. The fact this dream took place in the White House is a significant sign that God is bringing forth justice in the presence of the People's House. I believe it also represents the mid-terms. The ceremony itself points to a "holding" of the fort, a celebration as the giants fall. The Father is cleansing the lies and bringing hidden darkness to light. His hand is upon Cyrus and there will be great celebration at the ceremony of the moguls' downfall – the midterms.
One other interesting point is that Cyrus of old was from Persia, which means, "That cuts or divides." It doesn't take much to recognize that Trump has been a threshing instrument to cut through the lies and to divide and separate that which has been secretly hidden and destroying the nation for too long. He was not anointed as a pastor, but as an instrument to cut and divide in order to expose.
Another interesting find in relation to the dream was what I discovered about the Truman balcony. It was a very prominent feature of my dream, and I found that in the same year of the balcony's establishment, a very prominent media outlet was also established. As I was standing on the balcony looking down at the sentencing, it points to our "standing" on victory over the enemy's lies and establishments.
Sound the Trumpets
The trumpets in my dream heralded the beginning of this ceremony of the sentence, the mid-terms. I believe the sound of the trumpets represents the Body of Christ releasing this very proclamation of prophecy: "Let the justice of our God prevail. The moguls are about to fall. Babylon will fall." It is a sound of EVERY voice arising together in unity and shouting that our God will prevail. Our God is above every other name! (Photo via Unsplash)
I prophesy that we are going to witness the effects of Zechariah 4:6 where it says, "So He said to me, 'This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit," says the LORD Almighty.'" The Father's justice will prevail. The giants will fall by the strength and power of His Spirit. I believe the Holy Spirit is inviting us in this unique time in history to partner with His proclamation and by faith, take back the nations who have been under the tyranny of confusion. I also feel strongly that it is our responsibility to pray and intercede for President Trump because what happens to America spreads globally.
We also need to be praying on behalf of the people in the media and within governmental ranks that the enemy is manipulating for his benefit. God's heart is for them, just as much as His heart burns for you and I, and He desires to see them freed from the chains of the enemy and restored to His heart. Will you join me in standing in agreement? Will you decree with me, "Let the justice of our God prevail!" Let our battle cries be heard in the heavens as our united shouts of decrees unleash the forces of Heaven to wage war on our behalf.
Prayer Strategies and Keys for Militant Intercession:
1. Pray that any hidden agendas within the media would be exposed (Daniel 2:22).
2. Decree justice over the United States, the president and over the nations.
3. Use this prophecy and others as your weapons (1 Timothy 1:19 and pray Psalm 58).
4. Pray daily protection over President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and their families (Psalm 91).
5. Fast as the Holy Spirit leads you.
6. UNITE with other Christians, refrain from criticizing with your words.
7. Pray for the lies and confusion of the media to be exposed and torn down (Isaiah 25:7). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
