After continuously getting bombarded by negative videos about the current state of affairs in the United States, we have been burdened in our spirits to relay a message for those who pray for the United States. Firstly the video that surfaced in Minneapolis of George Floyd was despicable and the officer who killed that man will be rightfully prosecuted, however many people seem to think this government, and President Trump, in particular, are somehow responsible. We implore you to first ask the Holy Spirit and seek the Father’s heart for America before going to any news source that will always be biased, but since most believers both from the U.S. and around the world choose to let their favorite news networks decide what is “really” happening, this is for your consideration. For foreigners, the most-watched international news source around the world regarding the state of affairs in the United States is CNN which comes in third in viewership in the U.S., close behind MSNBC in second, and behind Fox News in first, the majority of whose viewership is believers, which doubles the viewership of both CNN and MSNBC (Statista.com). While CNN and MSNBC are as far left on the political spectrum as you can get, Fox News is the only reliable conservative news channel in the nation. It is a shame that the international audience never sees it because then you would understand what more than half of the rest of America actually thinks. As every person in the world knows how biased the news can be this should not surprise anyone, and if you thought it was any different in the United States, it’s actually worse.
It is clear there is plenty of scapegoating happening as the news loves ratings, and with the election season in full swing prepare for the claws to come out, and the pandering to people’s emotions to be the only news you see and hear. For this reason, we are urging the Body of Messiah to see with the eyes of the Father and realize that there is a fervent praying community of Spirit-filled believers in the United States who have been destroying the fallen kingdom of darkness on a massive scale, especially in the run-up to Shavuot (Pentecost), and the enemy is lashing out in anger. As the warrior Bride of Yeshua it is not our job to point fingers and act on emotional headlines, but rather to remember we are citizens of heaven in order to bind on earth what has been bound in heaven and loose on earth what has been loosed in heaven (Matthew 16:19 Amp). We were born for battle, and we need to be tightening our armor and sharpening our swords, realizing major damage has been done to the strongholds and infrastructure of the enemy in America instead of acting like this was bound to happen eventually. An animal that is trapped lashes out in a last-ditch effort to defeat its prey and that’s precisely what the enemy is doing in the U.S. When we say enemy let’s be clear, satan, and his legions, not people, but the Ephesians 6:12 enemy. If we are praying according to the news expect to be praying in deception and ignorance, but pray instead according to the Holy Spirit and expect to receive divine revelation and strategy. Now is the time to ramp up the intercession, not to say woe is me it didn’t work!
Imagine if the intercessors in Indonesia and those from abroad praying for Indonesia just said forget it, Indonesia is the most populous Muslim nation in the world, there is nothing the King of the Universe can do for that nation. When riots started in the streets of Jakarta this past election, the prayers of the saints worldwide spiked to an all-time high! What if we just stopped praying for One Korea and the believers who are daily hunted, tortured, and imprisoned in North Korea, because the news said it was a lost cause? What if we decided to pray the opposite of how Scripture tells us to pray for Jerusalem and Israel (Psalm 122:6) because the news told us it was the right thing to do? Just like there is a fervent remnant of warrior intercessors in your nation who are not fooled nor do they tolerate the blatant deception of the fallen kingdom of darkness, so too are your fellow brothers and sisters in Yeshua standing their ground in the fight for the United States of America. We stand with them to see the promise of the great I Am for that nation fulfilled to its fullest according to Abba’s will, just as we do for so many nations of the world that the Father has burdened our hearts for. We are in this together, not divided like the enemy is trying to divide the United States right now. The oldest trick in the book of satan is to divide and conquer and he hasn’t changed. The only one we should be pointing fingers at is he who comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and our attention should be directed with the utmost intensity to the strengthening of the saints, the falling of the veil of deception, the softening of hardened hearts, blessing our enemies to encounter Yeshua as we were once in their shoes, the wisdom of our leaders, and Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. The United States without God-fearing men and women praying for it is doomed to darkness, but that is not the case, just as it is not the case in your nation! This Yeshua thing is not a competition, it is a family. Will you pray for the brother and sister who have different political views than you do? Yes! Do you want to see the destiny of Adonai fulfilled in them? Yes! So why would it be any different for a nation? Join us as we come together as one body during this unprecedented time we are all going through, blow away the smokescreen of the enemy, and begin to see our common enemy standing before us. When the smoke clears, the enemy will no longer be laughing, because they will see an army united with the Lion of the Tribe of Judah at its head. Adonai bless you and keep you.
