THE ELIJAH LIST
Native American, Jim Chosa, Speaks Prophetic Wisdom into the Land and the Elections
Jim and Faith Chosa have been married for 20 years and have
ministered together for 18 years. Pastor Jim Chosa is a Chippewa Indian from Northern
Michigan. On August 30, 1979, the Lord captured his attention by changing a bottle
of beer into vinegar and, by His Word, "Put it down on the bar!" delivered him completely
from alcohol and drugs. He was saved in 1980, and has taught the Word of God to
all people since 1982. He and his wife, Faith, a Crow Indian, have established
Day Chief Ministries, Inc. In 1998, they established the School
of the Risen Warrior and founded "The Church in the Wilderness"
in the heart of the Crow Nation at Yellowtail, Montana. Their mission is to train
and equip Native missionaries for ministry to other indigenous peoples around the
world. In 1999, they established the Risen Warrior Prayer Network
to unite an intercessory prayer effort with a mission to pray for reconciliation
and restoration of Native believers to their full destiny in the Body of Jesus Christ.
They also minister with various national leaders in conferences around the nation,
equipping intercessors and building networks between the Native and non-Native cultures
within the Body of Christ. Jim is also an advisor to the Montana AGLOW State

I am forwarding two interesting emails from Jim Chosa a member of our USSPN National
Apostolic Team. The first concerns how he has been led to pray for the presidential
election. I think this could have a major influence on the voting process. Many
of you will want to use this as a prayer focus. Then, below this is an excellent
article he has written on exercising our earthly citizenship through voting.
Chuck D. Pierce
Greetings! Several days ago, around 3:30 AM, the Holy Spirit woke me up. As I came
awake, I realized I was moving forcefully against an occult shield covering one
of the presidential candidates. For the next hour I continued to obey the promptings
of the Holy Spirit to nail this dark shield and break it wide open so the real spiritual
character of the candidate could be seen by those seduced by a high level spirit
of sorcery. Then I called a close friend and high level intercessor and found out
she is carrying the same burden in the Spirit.
Because we cannot openly endorse a political candidate as a minister of Christ,
we cannot tell you the name of the candidate. However, I can tell you this with
respect to how the Holy Spirit would have us understand from Heaven's viewpoint
which of the two candidates for president the Lord endorses. It centers on one issue
which is a life and death issue: abortion. How our nation prospers or becomes the
object of God's wrath and thus is made desolate centers on this, the most important
issue. All other issues, although important, become secondary. The issue of abortion
is more than just about killing an innocent life. It is about magnifying the defilement
of and the continuing of the spiritual pollution of the entire landscape of America
through the bloodshed of the innocent. This is the one issue which prevents God
from inhabiting the land with His people as stated in Numbers 35:33-34:
"So ye shall not pollute the land wherein
ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood
that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. Defile not therefore
the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the
children of Israel."
The rage of the masses which are anti-God in the nation
and anti-one-of-the-candidates, allows the occult forces of darkness to merge with
the personal issues of the candidate and strengthen the shield around the candidate.
This rage is, in a very real sense, false worship. The door-opening spirit for sorcery
surrounding this candidate is the spirit of divination or false words; these two
together open the way for witchcraft or false authority.
Breaking the Occult
Shield of Evil
Because the Holy Spirit has given us this mission, we, as
First Nation believers in the high authority of King Jesus, give it to you as well
to partner with us to break the occult powers trying to influence and ultimately
control the future direction of our nation by breaking this shield around this candidate.
We also give you the following Psalm to undergird you as we push forward in the
power of the Kingdom of God.
1 "WHY DO the nations assemble with commotion [rage, uproar
and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise)
an empty scheme? 2 The kings of the earth take their places;
the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and His Anointed one (the Messiah,
the Christ). They say, 3 Let us break Their bands [of restraint]
asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us. 4 He Who
sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt
He mocks them]. 5 He speaks to them in His deep anger and
troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury, saying,
6 Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [firmly]
on My holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree of the
Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You.
8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance,
and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. 9
You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like potters'
ware. 10 Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed
and warned, O you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with
reverent awe and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling
[lest you displease Him]. 12 Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him
in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath
be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek
refuge and put their trust in Him!" (AMP)
We are not advocating standing against a human personality,
but against the forces of evil. The Spirit of God has given us the most powerful
spiritual weapon in all the universe: God-Life. Death cannot stand where God-Life
is made manifest. It is the believers' privilege to release this Life in specific
manner to overcome all elements of evil. Therefore, to overcome this spirit of sorcery,
we must begin with the spirit of divination. Begin to release God-Life to both candidates
through the BLOOD judgment of Christ; release God-blessings on both, and God-Truth.
Through the Blood of Christ break the shield of the occult forces: "I (we) break
the occult shield of evil around (so and so) in Jesus' name. We cancel and break
the occult power of all divining words sent out in the name of Christ as the Truth
of God. We bring into the Light the divining words of evil spoken to seduce the
people of America and the world and expose the lie hidden in them."
Be led of the Spirit, but also mobilize others to do this highly important spiritual
work; be greatly blessed today in King Jesus, looking upward and forward to see
His Kingdom coming into our nation in this hour.
Exercising Our Earthly Citizenship:
A Doorway for the Advancing of the Kingdom of God
One of the most important responsibilities we have as
citizens of the United States of America is the privilege to vote. The privilege
to vote is not free; it has been paid for by the blood of the multitudes of lives
given in the struggle for freedom; by the many who have worn the uniform of our
armed forces; by the multitudes of African-American and other minorities who struggled
for the recognition of their civil and human rights; and by the lives of a multitude
of women who likewise struggled for freedom granted to them in the U.S. Constitution.
I am Native American and, during the Vietnam War, I was one who wore the uniform
of the U.S. Army as a point-man for C Company, 2nd Battalion, 12th Regiment, First
Air-Cavalry Division; I count it a privilege to vote as a citizen of the United
States of America.
Voting or exercising citizenship as members of the nation however, is so much more
when Christ Jesus enters the picture. Many true believers in Christ erroneously
presume that becoming a Christian somehow elevates them above what is seen as the
"dirty field" of politics. Thus, on Election Day they refrain from exercising their
citizenship privilege to vote. Politics, however, has become the "dirty field" it
is precisely because of this erroneous practice of Blood-bought saints of God.
A Doorway Through Which
the Intercessory Act of God Can Legally Enter the Entire Arena Influenced by the
From our First Nation and the Kingdom of God perspective,
let us show you what exercising our voting privilege really accomplishes in the
Earth Realm. First, we must shift our spiritual heart over to the reality of the
Kingdom of God through the Blood of the Cross of Jesus Christ. Through Christ alone
we have been translated into the Kingdom or the Domain and Rule of King Jesus. Now
we are not just citizens of an Earthly nation, but we are first and foremost citizens
of the commonwealth of the Kingdom of God. As citizens of God's Kingdom, we must
walk, live, and be led by the Holy Spirit of God. This means that all actions and
decisions of our will must be made in harmony with the Will of God, made clear by
the Holy Spirit.
Our Earthly citizenship becomes for us a doorway to legally express our Heavenly
citizenship in the Earth Realm. Our two-fold citizenship, Earthly and Heavenly,
connects both realms of the natural and spiritual. Thus the act of voting for the
candidate of our choice, if first made in harmony with the Holy Spirit, becomes
a doorway to express the specific Will of God's Kingdom on Earth. When we cast our
vote as led by the Holy Spirit, our voting then becomes an act through which God
can legally enter into and influence the social and governmental spheres on the
Earth. This makes every vote cast by a true, Blood-bought believer in Jesus Christ,
an intercessory act empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Every check mark we make on the election ballot becomes a doorway through which
the Intercessory Act of God can legally enter the entire arena influenced by the
political realm. When these check marks are magnified by all of God's people, this
intercessory act releases the synergized authority and power of God's into all facets
of society impacted by elections.
So, please allow through prayer and fasting, if necessary, the Holy Spirit to empower
you to rise up as a responsible citizen of the Kingdom of God on the Earth, direct
your choice for the candidate of God's choice, and then help you see your voting
act as a doorway to release God into the Earth Realm. After you vote, lift up a
high praise of thanksgiving in your heart unto God. May the Lord bless you and reveal
to you God's choices for public office in the election year.
