This is both a potent and powerful word from Jodie Hughes. She recently had a dream where she received deep revelation from the very heart of God about justice coming to the unborn.
I know many intercessors and ministries have been praying for years concerning this very important issue of LIFE in our nation.
Now that would be an amazing answer to all the prayers from the saints concerning the unborn!
Please read this important word and pass it on to everyone you know. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
It's "Due Time"
NOW is a "due time" to not give up in the battle surrounding abortion. Instead, it's a time to advance in confidence, decreeing life.
"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary." (Gal. 6:9)
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10)
I recently had a powerful prophetic dream about the urgency to decree life. It's crucially important continue praying, and not back down. The courts of Earth will hear the cry for justice from the courts of Heaven.
There is a specific grace being released from God to advance forward in this season. This grace will bring increased influence and media attention, and attract many that have previously not openly stood for life. It will raise up a new breed of prayer warriors and movements; sparking fresh grace over foster care, adoption and alternatives to abortion. It will open the ears of the courts of Earth impacting law and will transform the face of modern activism.
"Some of the loudest voices for abortion will become the greatest advocates for life."
As we ensure that our words, actions and prayers are bathed in this grace and love, previously deafened ears will hear the cries for life. Now is a time to keep standing, believing and praying; for there's a grace and momentum for major breakthrough and reform. As we rightly celebrate wins, we must keep striking the ground in prayer until we see complete victory. Justice is being decreed from the courts of Heaven. Charge ahead in boldness and confidence, and don't back down.
I was acutely aware that all I had seen take place in my dream was the fruit of those who have faithfully gone before us. Every person who has stood for life is to be honored.
A Cry for Justice and an Urgent Call to Prayer
As I watched in my dream, I saw entire families, men, women and children marching around a court. Each person was worshiping, praying and decreeing life as they walked together. I could hear a multitude of children crying very clearly and loudly; their cries were continual and intense, demanding urgent attention. It was hard to listen to as it was heart-piercing.
In the dream, I was aware that the crying I heard was prophetic symbolism. It mirrored the escalating cry for justice from the multitudes of children, now in Heaven, who had been aborted. It was deeply moving. I understood even in my dream that those aborted were currently in Heaven, experiencing no pain and feeling no bitterness. They were completely loved and completely at peace. It is important to note: there was no malice, bitterness or shame in this dream. God's grace was tangible.
However, there was a cry for justice in my dream that I heard in the form of crying children. The cry was intensifying. I was aware in my dream of the great cloud of witnesses, and their voices urged us to keep going.
The unrelenting cry I heard was birthing something. It was a call for an army to arise on Earth in one voice, decreeing LIFE. The cry came from the courts of Heaven ushering in a groundswell of warriors. It announced the day coming when abortion loses its grip. The urgency and importance of the hour was palpable, and I felt the URGENT call to pray from Heaven.
Breakthrough Keys: March, Advance, Worship and Prophetically Decree
Breakthrough worship and prophetic decrees were going on continuously around the court. I knew these were keys to seeing these walls come down in the courts of Earth. The sound of the worship was striking the earth with breakthrough, releasing fresh faith.
I was drawn to many who were marching around the court. Their worship and prayers were anointed for breakthrough, as it was specifically directed toward releasing life and shifting abortion laws. There was a knowing that "this is the appointed time" to advance in confidence and not give up, as conditions were ripe for reformation. There was much noise trying to drown out the cry for justice, but this was only a distraction to silence and wear down the voices for life.
I watched entire families march together, holding hands while decreeing life. It was profoundly beautiful and compelling. Their faces were fierce but not angry. Their eyes carried grace, and a holy fire. They were marked by an unrelenting courage and determination. I watched as they marched and prayed, each picking up a crying child and placing them on their shoulders. I knew this was symbolic of Isaiah 9:6, "...And the government shall be upon His shoulder..." I also saw children picking up other children, which was profoundly powerful, and I could see many of these children would be some of the fiercest warriors. (Photo via Unsplash)
There was a compelling invitation to those who have previously stood back to boldly pick up and carry in prayer the cry for justice.
As I watched those carrying crying children, I understood that this battle MUST be fought UNTIL we see the mountain leveled. Future generations hung in the balance. The enemy is determined to not lose ground. Much of the fear and noise from "Goliath" is designed to distract us from confidently standing in truth and seeing this giant destroyed. Confident, childlike faith was shifting what had seemed impossible. I was aware that breakthrough was in the courageous advancing forward, despite the noise.
A New Mantel
Grace was key. Without grace, many in high offices would remain deaf to the call for justice. Many of the most EFFECTUAL WARRIORS would remain on the side lines because of shame. GRACE IS THE GAME CHANGER.
I saw a new mantle of grace and justice. The war against life is one of the greatest battles of our time. This battle is bigger than abortion because the ramifications will affect generations to come. It's a showdown between light and dark, life and death. Every mountain of influence will be affected by the outcome. BUT, fresh grace for the battle is being released.
Women Warriors of Justice and Grace
My attention was now drawn to a beautiful, worshiping mother. This warrior picked up a crying five-year-old girl and put her horizontally across her shoulders. As the girl was five (five symbolizes grace), she was sizable and this looked really awkward.
"Now is a time to keep standing, believing and praying; for there's a grace and momentum for major breakthrough and reform."
I thought, "There must be an easier way to carry her." I suddenly knew this battle cost something of those who engaged in it. This woman then continued to march around the court, carrying the crying child. I knew she was a mother of a new breed of warrior God is raising up. We will see powerful women warriors, many of whom will arise from hiddenness and will boldly champion justice.
I watched this woman make what was hard seem easy. She carried the call for life with such infectious grace and fierce courage that it was emboldening others to join her. Her voice was compelling, re-shaping the battle and raising up a new breed of advocates for life. Fresh interest from the media was attracted by these strong women who clearly carried grace and transformed activism.
A Call to Carry Grace
I then realized the name of the five-year-old girl was GRACE. Heaven's grace rested on those who stood for life, and there was grace to contend for life NOW. I knew carrying grace was essential to shifting laws, healing hearts and opening doors that had previously been closed.
The world is about to see a fresh wave of activism and prayer arise in the Body that fights with purity, courage, and healing grace. The voice of the Church will be found, and it will sound different than it traditionally has. This will not only impact laws, but transform the hearts of many. The fight for life will have an accelerated momentum as hearts are gripped by a holy understanding of Heaven's most urgent agendas.
A Shift in Mindsets and a New Wineskin for a New Season
Suddenly, my eye was drawn to an older man sitting on the steps of the court. I knew he represented "the accepted thinking of the day." His countenance was disinterested, tired and hardened. Even though he sat on the steps of the court, his ears were deafened to the constant cry for life going on in front of him. I knew however that this would shift, and an accepted thinking of the day would alter as a holy plumb line of righteousness to reset hearts.
Then I noticed something different emerging. A new face and sound of activism, prayer and justice with GREAT influence was arising. It's a new wineskin for a new season with new grace to champion life in the current political and cultural climate.
As I looked back, I saw that the man sitting on the steps of the court had begun to hear the cry for life. His entire countenance began to change. Encountering grace was opening his ears to the call for justice. This required persistence to reach inside the court, but deaf ears began to hear.
I looked ahead and saw a fresh grace for birthing initiatives and ministries to support life. Adoption, foster care and new initiatives I had no name for arose to champion life and support women to thrive. Advocating life would partner in a fresh way with advocating grace.
Transformation is Coming! Don't Be Discouraged By What Looks Like Closed Ears
It was important to not be discouraged by what looks like closed ears right now. In my dream, prayer was opening the ears of those who sat in high places. Pray that the ears of those who sit in the courts of the Earth will hear justice's cry. Some of the loudest voices for abortion will become the greatest advocates for life. They are but one encounter away from personal transformation.
I see many having dreams of aborted children in Heaven. This will impact hearts with such transforming grace that they will arise as fierce advocates for life.
Jesus is Carrying the Cry for Justice
Psalm 8:2, "You have built a stronghold by the songs of babies. Strength rises up with the chorus of singing children. This kind of praise has the power to shut Satan's mouth. Childlike worship will silence the madness of those who oppose you."
In the dream I was now in the days to come, and I saw Jesus carrying a crying child on His shoulders, standing boldly before a court. This moment was deeply impacting. I knew Jesus not only heard the cries for justice but was standing ready to roar. (Photo via Unsplash)
IMMEDIATELY the crying stopped! The silence magnified the enormity of the victory that had just happened. I awoke from my dream filled with hope. I was saying, "THE CRYING STOPPED!"
I knew a day of swift justice was coming to our courts. I also knew the call to prayer for life was imperative, and touched the very heart of Jesus.
