Jonathan Ngai sits on the same Prophetic Roundtable that I do. It's called ACPE and we meet every November to discuss and prophesy over the urgency of the hour. Jonathan has received this warning word from the Lord that we MUST KEEP PRAYING.
Christian Freedom in American is at stake.
I would never have believed that within less than one year's time, so many of our normal freedoms would be at risk. NEVER.
The enemy of our souls, the devil, feels that he is dealing a death blow to the followers of Christ, but as we pray at this exact time, we are dealing a death blow to all of darkness.
Don't stop praying. God's got this, but He has always required our prayers of agreement so that our prayers can be answered. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

For the last 2 months, we have been single-minded in our prayers for America. At Radiance (Hollywood House of Prayer), we did 40 days of prayer and fasting leading up to the elections and have continued to be on the wall ever since. There is simply too much at stake right now for us to stop. To be honest, it hasn't been easy. It's been an up and down roller coaster, but the Lord is challenging His Bride to "walk by faith and not by sight." This battle is going to lead us into greater and greater faith for the days ahead.
Some of the greatest encouragements in this season have been the prophetic words, dreams and visions the Lord has given to His people. They have helped us stay the course and know there is a bigger picture to what God is doing behind the scenes. We are all going to see the fulfillment if we don't give up!
A few nights ago, I was awakened from an intense dream. In the dream, we were in a room with an army from Rome. They were planning an insurrection against our people and they were just about to act. For some reason, I had brought my Braveheart sword and knew the general of this evil army was just about to wake up and execute their plan against our nation. I needed to use that sword to kill this man before he and the army woke up. The name of the general was Marcus Aurelius. Right before he was to wake up, I took my sword and killed him. (Note: this does not represent a human in the dream, but the globalist agenda which I mention below.) (Photo via Unsplash)
When the army woke up, they no longer were powerful because they had lost their leader. They still went out and tried to start violence but they were thwarted. They went into the city to do senseless acts, like shooting in the public square and shooting in a mall, but they didn't have the organization for a full blown coup as they had planned – just violence that was being reported on the news.
The scene changed and I heard that the Baltimore Ravens (representing Washington DC) were in the Super Bowl, and someone I knew came in to play quarterback and scored a touchdown at the end of a lopsided game in which the Ravens were losing. Though it seemed hopeless, I knew in my spirit this was a big score for the city.
I went into a gathering and was asked to share about the death of Marcus Aurelius and how that powerful army had been stifled. As I shared the story, the Ravens started an improbable comeback and there was great hope for what was to come.
The scene changed again, and we started counting votes again in different cities, and wherever there was a re-vote (even in the most unlikely of counties) the numbers would turn red. There were batches that were changing the numbers, and they were found in state after state because their strongman was down and they couldn't stop this turnaround.
I believe the enemy army is after a couple specific things right now that we need to pray over to protect:
Christian Freedom in America
After receiving the dream, I did some research and found out that under the rule of Marcus Aurelius, the persecution of Christians became the most intense during the Roman Empire.
We all sense that revival is coming to America. God is moving in the midst of all that is happening with COVID, racial tensions, and the elections. Thousands are being saved and this will continue, no matter the outcome of these next couple months. However, the enemy wants this revival to look like the beginning of the end times, where faith will be met with tremendous pushback (persecution, the shutting down of churches and ultimately martyrdom). This is not the will of God for this hour, but the enemy is working very hard to push the timeline ahead. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
I also discovered that during the reign of Marcus Aurelius, there was a pandemic that came in that was named the Antonine Plague, which killed an estimated 5 million people and devastated their army and their economy. This contributed to the beginning of the fall of the legendary Roman Empire. Interestingly enough, the plague is thought to have originated in China and traveled down the Silk Road into Rome.
America has been the leader of the free world for many decades now. Our economy is second to none and has offered so many the opportunity to create wealth. Our success has inspired the world unto capitalism and a free market. The enemy knows that if he can stifle this and take down the American economic system – communism, socialism and government control will be waiting in the wings.
As Believers, we are in a window of time where we have to pray and stand in faith against the agenda of the generals that want to destroy America. In the natural and in the media, things may look bleak (lopsided) but the Lord is about to insert His anointed (the quarterback) in the form of judges, senators, congressmen and the president. We are going to see a GREAT TURNAROUND!
The key is dealing a "Death Blow" in prayer to the global agenda that is trying not only to overtake America, but the entire world. This is not a call for any type of physical violence, but it is a call for spiritual violence. In Matthew 11:12 it says, "From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force."
Let us not grow weary on the wall; we need to pray NOW before this giant wakes up and it becomes too late to contain.
