Greetings to you! This period has been an intense one. Approximately six weeks before the government imposed a lockdown across the states the Lord called me into nightly prayers for 6-8 hours. I was not told why. Only to pray in the Spirit.
Ordinarily it would be easy but we were caring for my father-in-law who had dementia (there is a testimony here). Folks it was not easy. Making that commitment to prayer stretched me. I was going for days with very little sleep. Although it was hard I continued to push until we saw tremendous breakthrough at home and in many other areas. I learnt to rely on the Holy Spirit for my strength and broke through the physical fatigue that came from the lack of sleep.
As other nations began declaring quarantine the Lord had me join with some national and international intercessory teams. When we got together God would provide points to pray about. We did pray like our clothes was on fire. However, we were also keen to listen to what God would say. May I tell you? He never disappointed us. We were always provided with revelations of about the secret things occurring behind the scenes as the nations tackled the effects of the virus.
After the Passover (or Easter) the Lord indicated that the prayers against the spread of COVID-19 was to cease. We were now to focus on praying for businesses, schools, governments, economies, families, etc. I was released from the corporate prayers. Most of my efforts were now to be focused on projects given at the beginning of the year.
On Tuesday May 5, 2020 at 1 AM EST I had finished praying for the United States, the President and other government officials and was silently waiting on God. I had no special expectation. I just wanted to hear what God would say concerning my prayers and COVID-19. I knelt at the foot of the bed, with my eyes closed and just waited. Suddenly I felt my spirit being pulled out of my body. Then I saw a laboratory. Scientist were dressed in lab coats and safety gears. I instantly knew I was in Wuhan, China. The scientists were working feverishly to create a virus. Then I saw government officials gathering to make plans to release it. I watched as the virus was released in a controlled manner into the world. As I watched I knew what was happening. I knew I was seeing the origin of COVID-19.
Everything faded and I was back in my bedroom, kneeling beside the bed. I didn’t rush to move. I wanted more answers from God. So I patiently waited until the Lord spoke.
He confirmed what I saw and understood. Then I was told the reason for the development and release of the Coronavirus. The Holy Spirit said it was released with the intentions to destabilize the world economy so China could rise to prominence as the world’s greatest super power. The first nation of the world. At the same time, the single threat to the rise of China’s world dominance was also being dealt a blow. This was a silent war against the USA and it’s President Donald Trump. The Chinese government was engineering an economic downturn that would ensure the rise of Donald Trump was weakened. It was warfare released in retaliation for his victory over China in the trade wars. With the viral war unleashed against the United States, the Chinese government felt this was the only means to stop the re-election of Donald Trump. The only world leader who has successful stood up to their meteoric rise and reduced the tremendous trade surplus advantages they enjoy against the United States.
Now President Donald Trump may not be the most likable character. He does and say things that I may not be in agreement with at times. However, God has confirmed several times that PRESIDENT TRUMP IS HIS CHOICE to lead the greatest nation on earth. We have seen that the Lord has prospered him tremendously. The United States has seen record annual growth rates since he took office. The Lord has used him to provide well needed grace, support and recognition of Israel. He has also been a fierce defender of the faith. And a man of tremendous principles.
I believe that despite the economic downturn God will turn everything around. Much prayer and work is needed but I believe we will rebound. There is an economic downturn that is coming. This is not it. God has given us grace. Let us fast, pray and look with hope to the future. Our lives have changed but I believer it is for the better.
The Reason For My Hope
On Wednesday April 15, 2020 we gathered for corporate intercession as usual. What happened was not usual. We would normally pray for 4-5 hours to allow some rest. This time tried as we might the Holy Spirit would not release us. We were in prayer until 10 AM EST, when the Holy Spirit told us we had passed over and gave me Exodus 12:35-36. It was then that I realized it was the end of Passover. The Lord then said the threat of COVID-19 was over there would be continued reductions across the nations until finally the threat would end. We were also given the promise that there would be compensation for the trouble endured. Just as Israel left Egypt with silver and gold, so would God provide compensation for His people.
21 And I will give this people favor and respect in the sight of the Egyptians; and it shall be that when you go, you shall not go empty-handed.
22 But every woman shall [insistently] solicit of her neighbor and of her that may be residing at her house jewels and articles of silver and gold, and garments, which you shall put on your sons and daughters; and you shall strip the Egyptians [of belongings due to you].
35 The Israelites did according to the word of Moses; and they [urgently] asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver and of gold, and clothing
36 The Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they gave them what they asked. And they stripped the Egyptians [of those things].
The Lord has been true to His promises. We have been receiving lots of financial blessings. There has also been a release ideas. Saints have been directed to push forward on their projects. Efforts were to be redoubled on projects started at the beginning of the year.
What I ask of you is that you continue to pray for your local and national leaders, farmers, businesses recovery and growth, workers, economic stability, people infected with COVID-19 that they will recover fully, that there will be no more deaths from COVID-19, economic stability, families unity and love, food for the poor, that love will rein in the heart of people and the spread of the gospel. Also please let your hands and feet become prayer. Please do your part to support local businesses.
The world has faced greater threats and pulled through. We can do this! Regardless of the original intent behind the virus. We will not be defeated! We are resilient. With God’s help we will rebuild. We will prosper!
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
