Chuck D. Pierce:
The Vision for Now!
Dear Praying Saints:
This afternoon I was asked by a good friend if I had heard that a well-known leader prophesied that "Jesus was returning tomorrow!" I said, "Yes, I did hear that but most likely you can continue with your plans for tomorrow!" Whereas we must remain "watchful" on a daily basis, there are many things that must align before that Final Trumpet blows!
Let me remind you of something that the Lord showed me. I write about some of this in Redeeming the Time. I do believe that many pick up on what is happening in the Spirit but the only paradigm of interpretation they know is the "Rapture" paradigm and us escaping from the changes ahead.
On May 31, 2008, I was preparing to speak at a large gathering at Liberty State Park in New Jersey near Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Suddenly, the Lord gave me a vision of our nation. He took me three years into the future and began to let me hear and see what our future would look like. He first showed me my own bloodline and the glory and iniquity of its history. He then showed me three years ahead and the two iniquitous spirits that would try to capture my children and children's children.
Next, He showed me that within three years (by May 31, 2011), a statement would be made regarding Israel in this nation that would realign the nation and determine the future of this land. (With President Obama's speech yesterday endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their own state based on borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, this has now happened. I believe this statement will create a split in the United States for the next three years as individual states make choices on how they will align.)
The Lord then revealed His remnant in this nation, which states had covenant roots, which states were anti-covenant, and the divine war that would arise over the future glory of this land. He showed me 21 states that would stand strong with the God of Israel, two states that hung in the balance, and one state that could turn the nation. (To better understand the future of the nations and anti-Semitism, you can purchase God's Unfolding Battle Plan and The Future War of the Church).
The Lord also showed me how financial systems would realign and nations would have different allegiances than we have known in the past. This begins now. Like the frog in the kettle, you will see gradual changes starting June 5.
Excerpt from Redeeming the Time
In Redeeming the Time, I wrote the following:
"On May 31, 2008, the Lord showed me His triumphant reserve. He raised me and showed me the nation of the United States of America. First, He revealed His remnant and where they were positioned. Next, He showed me their strength from state to state to state. He showed me how many were moving over into the enemy's camp of religion. He showed me how others were aligning around race and gender as opposed to mission call and gifting.
Then He showed me high places. These were altars that had been built by the enemy and positioned strategically throughout the land. I saw how the sacrifices on these altars were empowering and keeping an atmosphere held captive by ruling hosts. Next, the Lord showed me the atmosphere. In this vision, He showed me different layers of the atmosphere in relationship to His presence versus the demonic spiritual rule in that particular area or region. (Some areas have already been taken over, and darkness actually rules those areas.) There were ten ruling centers already developed within the United States. Then He showed me the communication systems between these centers. I saw how one sacrifice empowered one dimension of an evil presence, and then that presence would communicate to another center as together they networked their plan of control. (I could go into great detail here, but I will wait for another time to do this. As a matter of fact, I believe it would be unwise to share everything I saw. In the next book when we are dealing with worship, perhaps I will share more.)
The Lord also showed me covenant roots. He actually showed me the level of nurturing that was still grafted to His covenant root, which He had developed from Abraham's obedience. He showed me how this nation had first been nurtured by that root, but now lifelines from the root system had withered. Actually, some of the lifelines in parts of this nation had dried up, and the root system of that part of the nation had changed, allowing a different root structure to be formed.
He then showed me our conflict between the root systems. These conflicts in the next several years would determine what sort of fruit would be brought forth in this nation. He showed me that the conflicts would multiply and intensify. I actually saw orchards of contention. The interesting portion of this vision was that different people groups in each orchard created a different type of fruit than had been tasted of in past seasons. The only thing I could relate to biblically was the church that came out of Antioch. The Antioch church was an international church that came about for kingdom advancement for that season in history.
Next, He showed me how the communication system in the United States was linked with systems internationally and how a new form of global communications was forming in the demonic world. This communication would control financial and legal structures.
However, He showed me that His remnant was building new freedom outposts. He called this remnant His 'triumphant reserve.' I saw twenty-three freedom outposts in twenty-three states. He then showed me other outposts that needed to form in some places, and still others where the spiritual atmosphere was now not conducive to freedom. A new type of war would have to develop to regain that portion of the land. He actually showed me how prayer strategies from the last season would be of no affect in this season. Nazareth and Capernaum are good examples of this in Jesus's day. I also thought of how the Lord told the disciples, 'This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting' (Matt. 17:21)
He then showed me new calls being extended from heaven and angels bringing those calls into the earth. The intercession and travail of today are opening the gates of heaven for these calls to come to the appropriate individuals who will lead in this hour. Next, He showed me His new leadership. This was a leadership of not just the young generation but also realigned generations. It was as if David's mighty army for this hour was being chosen in a threefold generational alignment. When they aligned, their hearts became one with His, and the strength to overcome was released. God has deposited revelation and vision within you that will be called up for such a time as this." (pp. 58-61)
We have now done research on each State. Janice Swinney looked at the covenant roots of each state in America and their relationship with Israel. The Lord is raising up and realigning His people to possess a new level of glory in the earth realm to possess the harvest fields. This will be a people who are triumphant against the enemy. We will tear down, raise up, overthrow, rebuild and stand firm as we transform society for the generations to come.
