WAR OVER FLORIDA AND THE NATION

PIERCE WHO SAYS "THIS IS EXCELLENT!"
As I have sought the Lord as to why the battle ground is once again in
Florida, I believe he gave me the reason. I will try and piece it together in
order for us to see the purpose behind what appears to be a war over who will
be President of this Nation. If you believe the prophetic Word of the Lord is
actually from the Lord, then we can grab the heart of God for this time and
FLORIDA, THE ORIGINAL GATES OF ENTRANCE
As many of you know for several years there has been a thrust into
Tallahassee, Florida, the Capital City. This thrust has been due to God
revealing that Florida is the foundation of this Nation. The original gates of
entrance to this Nation are here, between St. Augustine and Pensacola.
Tallahassee became the "High Place of the Nation." In April this
year, we had a "High Place of the Nation" conference in Tallahassee
concluding the meeting on the steps of the old capital building with the high
praises of God in our mouth and a two-edged sword in our hand to execute the
judgment written against the powers, etc. that had laid the wrong foundation
stone. We feel God led us to do this and it was accomplished. We had Chuck
Pierce, Bishop Bill Hamon, Tom and Jane Hamon, myself and leaders from
Tallahassee, representing the Prophetic Apostolic foundation along with
pastors, intercessors etc. for that city present.
Many prophetic words have come forth about God coming into Florida. I will
just touch on a few.
Gwen Shaw - End-Time handmaidens magazine: "My mast is down and I'm
coming into port in Florida".
THE PROPHETIC WIND COMING UPON THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE
Another word which I will shorten, but try and get the part we need in
order to piece this together. It is a dream the Lord gave Ray Hughes:
"In June, the Lord gave me a dream about the prophetic wind coming
upon the Florida Panhandle cities, but also gave visual grit and reality to
the aggressive nature the Lord is desiring for His church. The days of passive
resistance to the enemies' attacks are over, for God, whether we are with Him
or not, will restore the warrior spirit to His bride. In the dream I saw a
fleet of warships coming in from the Atlantic Ocean, into the Florida
panhandle. The ships were rugged, as if they had each been through too many
battles to remember.
NOT PRETTY BY ANYONE'S DEFINITION
What I noticed more, however, were the men inside the ships. These were
huge, Viking-like warriors. They were not pretty by anyone's definition, but
were as ugly and rugged as a man can come. As they approached I heard a sound
coming from these warriors, something like a war cry. The warriors didn't look
or sound like anything we've seen before. Their sound was nothing like what
has become palatable in our charismatic worship services or anything that has
been accepted as Christian music, for that matter. Their sound was rugged and
raw - a sound of violence. It was a sound of warriors determined to take the
land by force."
Their shouts, cheers and claps were far more aggressive than anything I've
ever heard at any praise and worship conference. It truly had the sound of the
roar of a lion. Because of the aggressive nature of the sound, it was obvious
that some choices had to be made whether or not this would become something
welcomed into our "culture"-- whether or not people would accept
these warriors once they reached land.
WILL WE REJECT IT AT THE CITY GATES?
One of the choices will be, will we embrace the new thing God is doing or
will we reject it at the city gates? I believe the Lord is coming through the
gates, one way or another. Either He will come through by the authority of His
judgment coming and tearing down the gates-- or the gatekeepers will willingly
let Him in.
The same picture was created in Ps. 24, the song which was sung on the way
from moving the Ark of the Lord's presence. The last four verses describe the
conversation between the carriers of the Ark and the gatekeepers of the city.
For generations, the Lord had been known as the King of Glory, which is
expressed in each of these verses. Yet this passage displays the two
dimensions of His character: One of Glory and one of Terror. "Who is this
King of Glory?" the gatekeepers asked twice.
THE LORD, MIGHTY IN BATTLE!
The first response they got from the Ark carriers was describing a Lord,
mighty in battle. This apparently did not suffice for the gatekeepers, who
were again petitioned by the carriers to "Life up you heads, O you
gates!" after asking again, "Who is this King of Glory?"
The following response silenced all:
The Lord of Hosts.---If we don't let the King of Glory in, the Lord of
Hosts will come in. And He will come in with judgment. In my dream, the
warriors on these ships were shouting the same thing as in Ps. 24: "Lift
up your heads, O you gates!" I take that as a sign. The sound blowing in
from these ships will require some legitimate choices. Will we open the gates
for the Lord of Glory before we are forced to meet the Lord of Hosts?
ANCIENT DOORS THROUGH WHICH THE GLORY DISAPPEARED
The scripture calls them Everlasting Doors - this means what is hidden or
concealed - i.e. to the vanishing point - time past - antiquity - from the
most ancient times. These are the ancient doors thru which the glory of God
disappeared, and must be re-opened in order for the Glory of God to come in
In the Word of the Lord spoken over Tallahassee by Bishop Hamon:
"Tallahassee is the gateway into the Nation, so these ancient gates must
I am quoting this from memory, so forgive me if I don't quote it just
right. She saw an emerald green river coming from the throne of God which
carried healing and miracles in it. And it would begin in Florida. Where we
live is known as the "Emerald Coast and the highway as the "Miracle
Strip." But the implication is once again FLORIDA.
At the Apostles/Prophets conference at Christian International, he said,
"You must take out the Jebusites - Why the Jebusites?
"Jebus was the name of Jerusalem when David went to take the city. The
Jebusites said "You shall not come in here"! 1 Ch. 11:5
- If they could keep David out, the Ark of the Covenant couldn't get in.
The Glory of the Lord couldn't enter in. The Tabernacle of David could not be
built, the City of David could not be built. The Temple of God could not be
built. The place where God chose to put His name, and the glory to reside
could not be established. (David bought the site of the temple from a Jebusite).
Well the price of redemption has been paid! A quick review of the Jebusite:
(11 Sam. 5)
"THESE SPIRITS ARE PRESENT TODAY AT THE GATE OF THE STATE OF
FLORIDA!" --Chuck Pierce
"They were lame (skip over, hesitate) and blind (to be bare, naked, to
have a film over the eyes). Joshua 18 shows the tribe of Benjamin included the
Jebusites. We know what they were accounted for doing. Judges 19 - they were
homosexuals, rapist, murderers. David said, "I hate these spirits."
It is time to hate what God hates, and execute judgment against these spirits.
"These spirits are present today at the gate of the State of Florida -
saying "you shall not come in here." This is the ancient gate where
the King of Glory wants to come into this Nation, but the ancient spirits are
howling, protesting the very Presence of the King of Glory. We must execute
the judgment ALREADY WRITTEN to see the ancient gates open for the King of
Glory to come in!"
Another Word spoken by Chuck Pierce:
"Nine months of testing will now be upon my prophets - do not despise
this testing, for this testing will produce an enlargement - it will also
bring to birth that which I want to present to this world for the future.
It will be a year of travail, that travail will give you the great strength
to confront that which is going to try to steal my purposes in the future.
Where the enemy has been in place for the last 50 years in this nation, I
would say to you the enemy will be dethroned.
JUDGMENT EVIDENT IN THIS LAND BY FEB, 2002
Chuck Pierce: [The Lord says] "I have keys in my hand. I'm reviewing
authority from city to city, state to state, and region to region. I am
setting my course for judgment upon the states of this land. I will be judging
the states of this land and judgment will be evident by Feb. 2002."
JUDGMENT BASED ON THE CHURCHES COMPLACENCY
Chuck: "Judgment will come based upon the complacency of the church
from state to state. For you have thought judgment would come based upon the
civil government that is in place, but I would say to you that judgment will
come because of the complacency of My people.-----This will be a time of
determining the authority at the gates of your cities and states. The
rulership of the gates is being determined NOW.---over the next 18 months a
war of great spiritual magnitude.
The war will be over the boundaries of the future---for the enemy has
shifted boundaries. There is a war over the justice of this land. I will
establish justice in the midst of my people therefore there will be war over
the laws that have been established wrongly."
THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
I feel the reason the time is so crucial now is the next president of the
United States will either tap into the Spirit of the Lord, or into these
ancient spirits that are at the gate of this Nation. This is the reason they
have converged on Florida - to say - "You will not enter here" The
King of Glory will come in one way or another. We must remove these Jebusites
in order for America to come into the Purpose she was born for. I believe the
Lord has shown me that America is the place in the wilderness He has prepared
to preserve the Church during time, time and half time. Help us war the
warfare necessary to see the gates open to the King of Glory for this Nation -
Isa 28:5-6 - "In that day shall the Lord of Hosts be for a crown of
glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people, and for a
spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them
that turn the battle to the gate".
Ps 149:6-9 - "Let the high praises of God be in your mouth, and a
two-edged sword in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen and
punishment upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles
with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honor
have all his saints".
