A Vision of Angels
My husband Anthony and I recently participated in several days of nonstop worship and prayer under a tent strategically placed by the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in Philadelphia. We were invited to come alongside several other prophets to release the Word of the Lord over America from this 'womb of the nation.'
As I watched for what the Lord would have me say, I saw armies of angels being activated and released from Heaven in response to the worship ascending before God's throne. The angels swiftly descended and positioned themselves along the east coast of America. Then the earth began to rumble as if the very foundations of the nation were being shaken.
From this "east coast" perspective, I saw layers coming loose from the land. The angels took hold of those layers, one after the other, peeling them all back and up off the land. I could see that these layers were actually old, moldy scrolls filled with curse words and declarations of judgment and death spoken over our nation throughout history.
As the sound of worship intensified, the shakings intensified, and I saw many more layers of demonic scrolls coming loose and being removed by the angels. Then up from the furthest depths of the foundations of the nation surfaced several beautiful, golden scrolls teeming with light. They were filled with words of blessing and promise, which seemed to dance around on those heavenly scrolls as if they were alive!
I heard the Lord say, "Original Intent," and I understood these beautiful scrolls to be God's ancient scrolls of destiny being revived and reactivated for fulfillment in our day!
A "Hinge of History" Season
I then saw scrolls being unfurled from Heaven and laid on top of the foundational scroll that came up from the earth. There is history still to be written.
I hear the Lord saying that the next three months is a "hinge of history" season for personal and corporate destinies. In this time, your worship will be your greatest weapon for peeling back negative words spoken over your life and over the nation.
Your worship will make way for the activation of God's transformational words of truth, hope and prophetic destiny for America and for your walk with Him. As you worship your way into seeing and hearing God's original intent and design, you'll come out from under the weight of demonic decrees and step into right alignment with God's truth, producing much good fruit!
Search through the halls of American history, and search through the annals of Heaven's decrees to uncover the prophetic destiny of our nation. Those words of blessing and promise will serve as anchors and weapons in this season of shaking.
Align Yourself with the Father
Didn't Paul admonish Timothy to wage war with the prophetic words spoken over him (1 Timothy 1:18)? It's critical we do the same to secure God's intended future for ourselves, our families and our nation. What we say in this season will lay a pathway for our future. Be diligent to align your thoughts to God's higher thoughts, your words with His pure words, your heart to fully hope in Him.
As you worship and wage war with God's words of truth revealed, scales will fall from the eyes of many concerning the true design for family.
Legislation to preserve and protect the biblical definition of family and marriage will become the forward trend, just as we're currently experiencing with the rise of legislation to safeguard life in the womb. The Church will awaken and arise as a voice of virtue in this hour.
The peeling back of the profane, and the unearthing of these living, golden, heavenly scrolls may come through some shakings, but don't get distracted by the remodel; there's a great and glorious reveal coming!
"The earth was rocked at the sound of His voice from the mountain, but now He has promised, 'Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!'
"Now this phrase 'once and for all' clearly indicates the final removal of things that are shaking, that is, the old order, so only what is unshakable will remain." (Hebrews 12:26-27, TPT)
