Before the 2016 elections in the United States, I published a prophetic word on my website that was later published on other prophetic platforms. I wrote that the Lord had showed me that Donald Trump would win the election and He gave me a single word that would characterize the next decade ahead—and possibly even longer. The word He shared with me was reprieve. In the word that was published, I shared:
"I thought [reprieve] simply meant a break, and was very surprised by the definition, its gravity and its significance. Reprieve means: to delay impending judgment, to relieve temporarily from evil, and any respite or temporary relief. One of the definitions of the word warrant is: something as considered being the positive assurance of a thing.
I believe a Donald Trump presidency is God's warrant that will issue a far-reaching reprieve...
"As I contemplated the idea of a reprieve, a question began to form in my spirit under-girded with an urgency from the Lord to understand His desires: Lord if in Your mercy we have been granted a reprieve—how then must we live during this season? What kind of Christian does this day demand? As I have pondered these questions I believe I have been given some insight into God's heart for the days ahead.
"...this election season in the United States has been the trigger that has mobilized the global Body of Christ, to rise up in boldness with unified focus on an offensive such as has not been seen for a very long time! The Word of the Lord now ringing in my spirit for the season ahead is this: "Do not lose the momentum you have gained! Do not stop! Do not slacken the pace. Stay on the offensive; take the war into the enemy's camp and breakthrough the enemy's defenses."
Are We Still in the Reprieve?
Over the past 4 years, I am not so sure that we have fully understood this! We are presently in the midst of this reprieve. We are in a slot of time to get the job done, and it's very much connected to God's work through Donald J. Trump in relation to Israel, empowering the Church, the appointment of judges, abortion, as well as the annihilation of human trafficking and pedophilia that is becoming rampant.
The enemy's chief aim is to gain power over the world, to annihilate Israel and prevent the theocratic rule of God on Earth from becoming established in Jerusalem, Israel: "...The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem" (Micah 4:2). Israel is the reason the Trump presidency is vital, and why I am certain that he will win again.
We have been given a reprieve - a window of opportunity! I have been saying this with urgency before Donald Trump became president and since! The forces that mobilized the demonic machine before the last election are mobilizing again, using the same tools: disinformation, propaganda and violence, and now added to the mix is the plague of COVID-19! The demonic forces have mobilized to prevent everything God has purposed during this time, especially through the Donald Trump presidency. (Photo via Flickr)
For this reason, it is vital that we mobilize, in an even greater way, to pray and intercede again for the upcoming elections, as God will move through the intercession of His people—especially when we mobilize and take our place! It is key for those who call themselves followers of Christ, and those who are leaders, to have clean hands and pure hearts, as many prophetic voices have now been saying. The Word of God tells us in 1 Peter 4:17 that judgment begins in the House of God, and 1 Corinthians 11:31 says that if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
"For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the Gospel of God?" (1 Peter 4:17)
"For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged." (1 Corinthians 11:31)
"But when we are judged, it is the Lord's training so that we will not be condemned along with the world." (1 Corinthians 11:32 TPT)
Stand Up With the Courage to Fight!
We are now at a crossroads of history, where we will most certainly be plunged into darkness unless God's people rise up with the courage to fight! The stakes are high. The sons of God must arise...that is you and me! The dragon is seeking to devour the birth and rise of God's sons and daughters—we will only be victorious if we choose to stand on the principles written in Revelation 12:10-11.
"Then I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, 'Now salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.'" (Revelation 12:10-11)
This is the Cross in action. The Cross is the only weapon that defeated these forces and it is the only weapon that will continue to do so! The Cross is the only weapon the enemy understands, and the Blood is the only thing that causes them to recoil in fear!
There must be more than cursory pleading of the Blood in this season. The enemy will only be defeated by a life that lives and is characterized by the Blood—a life that no longer lives for themselves, their good name or their position, but for Christ, where Christ is evident and at the forefront! This is a new warfare we are entering and will be fought and won with wisdom—the wisdom of God!
We have been created to make known to principalities and powers the manifold wisdom of God! God's wisdom is represented in the Cross! The Cross is foolishness to the world, but it is the power of God to those who are saved, as it says in 1 Corinthians 1:18. God is enlisting and assembling the mature into a cohesive power-packed force, fused with the life force of the Trinity and driven by the authority and determination of God. (Photo via Pexels)
"However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing." (1 Corinthians 2:6)
I have felt an urgency in my spirit that God is calling for a move of repentance in the Body of Christ; that He desires a cleansing of the heart of His House from the things we have allowed to take precedence over the mandate and call on our lives, and the simplicity of service to our King. Repentance in humility has preceded every revival in history and will prepare us with the integrity, humility and character necessary to carry the weight of this next move of God. Doors are about to swing wide open for many who have been trained in obedience, persevered through the fire of training and counted their lives as nothing in light of His Kingdom purposes.
Paul lived the life of the Cross; he stated that he counted everything in this life as nothing in order to know Christ in His suffering and in the power of His resurrection. His statement in Philippians 3:12-15 is one that we must now fully embrace as we press forward in the good fight of faith.
"...but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore, let us, as many as are mature, have this mind..." (Philippians 3:13-15)
God's fireworks are about to begin. Let us be sober, alert and ready to stand resolute in the victory of our Lord!
