Prophetic Intercession for the Nations
Jeremiah 23:21-22 - I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.
Reese Howell was a radical intercessor during World War II whose prophetic revelation changed the course of the nations. Seeing in the heavens and knowing the plans of the enemy, he was able to then sabotage those schemes before they were fulfilled and release the plans of the Lord.
I want to share a testimony about the power of prophetic intercession. This kairos hour in history demands that we must know the times and seasons. Can we go into the counsel of the Lord and get the fresh strategies and war plans for today? During the Gulf War, I kept seeing the same battles taking place on television. I started to get very frustrated and said, “Lord, I don’t want just natural television. I want Your “tell-a-vision”. I want to see what is happening in the heavens over the Middle East. Lord, what is on your heart? There must be more information. I feel the American government is showing us bits and pieces, but Lord, what are You doing in the realm of the Spirit?”
On Sunday morning my pastor of a congregation of 3,000 told us to stand and pray for Israel. All of a sudden I heard the audible voice of the Lord saying, “Michael”. I asked, “Michael who?” He said, “Michael, the Archangel.” Suddenly I had an open vision of Michael fighting over Israel. I asked the Lord what he was doing. Instantly I saw the Prince of Persia and Michael in a fierce battle. The Lord continued, “The Prince of Persia is trying to pre-empt My time table so that’s why I’ve released Michael. The war will end in three days.”
The Lord spoke again and He said, “Gabriel”. I asked, “Lord, what’s Gabe doing?” Immediately I saw Gabriel moving families and individuals so they wouldn’t be harmed. The next night I was at a Baptist pastor’s house and met a pastor from Israel. As I shook his hand I said, “I saw Michael over Israel. The war is going to end on the third day.” He said, “Michael is the archangel over Israel.” When the pastor was flying back to Israel on Purim, the war ended that very day, which was three days later.
You see, you must be willing to have your antennas up twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Ask the Lord strategic questions about your life, family, work, school, city, and world events. The Lord is raising up prophets in this hour who will go into the counsels of the Lord. Intercession, fasting, and worship accelerate the call of God on each of our lives. Are you available to go deeper into the war room of God?
Prayer: Lord, I’m so spiritually blind. Open my eyes so that I can see what is happening in the realm of the Spirit. I so want to pray dangerous prayers that can stop the plans of the enemy and release Your power. I want to hear Your voice and know Your ways. Help me to pray in a way that establishes heaven on earth so that Your will is done.
