(I published this word earlier in the year - but I felt the unction of the Lord to republish it for such a time as this.)
Prophetically I’ve known it for a couple of years. America is about to go through a Dark Night of the Soul. It is that season where continual storms in life cause your true nature to arise. It’s the point at which all of the dross, the dark things in our hearts, rise up in the midst of the chaos.
The Dark Night of the Soul (click here) reveals your character
and invites you to make necessary changes.
America’s Dark Night of the Soul (click here
) is going to reveal where her true peace lies. Does it rely on government? Does it rely on money? Does America’s peace rely on pride or nationalism? One thing I can tell you for sure is that America’s peace does not rest on the rock of Jesus Christ. Thus the reason for the coming Valley of Death.
We are no longer living in the “sweet land of liberty.” We have lost our identity while the enemy has pursued our nation to dehumanize us and twist our thinking away from the reason God created our country in the first place. We are in need of some severe mercy from the Lord. The severe storms about to come upon America are meant to point out where our hearts truly lie.
The severity of God’s mercy will be a sweet relief for those who are already have been working to bring heaven to earth. This Valley of Death will be a help to those who are wanting to see Jesus be the foundation of our nation again. But the severity of God’s mercy will feel like the world is caving in to those who are not firmly planted in the identity of who God is and who no longer desire “liberty and justice for all.”
I had a vision of a television screen the other night before falling to sleep. On the screen was a deep orange color that looked like lava. I asked the Lord, if that was a volcano – did I need to pray against the destruction of a volcano?
The Lord responded to me, “No these are the fires of Mordor, this is how close we are to destroying the “Ring of Power” that rules over your nation.”
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the “Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkein, darkness ruled over the people of the land with One Ring. The One Ring was created by a Dark Lord Sauron and had power to spread darkness over the whole land and giving Sauron complete domination. It was the quest of a few volunteers to give up their lives in order to destroy the ring by throwing it into the fires of Mt Doom in the land of Mordor.
Unfortunately, we see a similar story being played out right here in America. A select few people have the power to “spin” America in any way that they see fit. They are used to pulling strings and ruling over our economy, politics, media, racism, entertainment and even religion. They are the puppet masters who pull the strings in order to see their will imposed on our nation.
Whether or not we have realized it – the true Church of God has been crying out for deliverance from these puppet masters. We have been crying out for the foundation of Christ to be reestablished in our nation as it once was. We are crying out for the “sweet land of liberty” -
the land where our fathers died and land of the pilgrims pride
– we are crying out again for FREEDOM!
The impending Valley of Death is the Lord coming to answer the prayer of His True Church.
This Valley - where everything that can be shaken will be shaken - is meant to be severe mercy!
These are the things we are about to witness in the Valley of Death:
No longer will a few people be able to control the elections. No longer will they be able to blackmail candidates and impose their chosen candidate upon us. God is using Donald Trump as a wrecking ball to the establishment and to those who have the Ring of Power in politics. He cannot be controlled even by the political correctness of the Church. God has no problem offending the religious rules and regulations that the church has in their minds about what a righteous leader should look like.
God is going to use Donald Trump to break the church free from their self-righteousness.
God is using him as a wrecking ball and will continue to allow the bull to break up the china shop. He will remain the instrument of God until the Lord is finished destroying the Political Ring of Power. (I wish the church would be more grateful for this.)
This election will be the first election in a long time that we truly have FREE and FAIR elections, and it will largely be because Donald Trump will not bow.
The economy will begin sinking into the mud. Those with the Ring of Power are looking to take America out! It will look as though we are headed for another depression, but that will not be the case.
Intercessors will rise up and pray for the economy and God will answer those prayers and raise it up out of the sinking mud. It will be such a drastic turn of events that even the media will have to give a second thought that something supernatural intervened.
The rescue of the economy will be a humbling to the entrepreneur that their ways and formulas aren’t where their peace comes from, it only comes from the mercy and grace of God that they succeed.
There will be losses because of the dip of the economy – but they will be small losses compared to what a depression would bring.
Intercessors will unite in a new way realizing that they have power over the Puppet Masters of this world and a new and stronger faith will inspire many to begin to address the giants in the land.
The Ring of Power over our economy will have met the power of the intercessors – and it will lose. Those who thought they could manipulate the economy to control America will be frustrated. Their power will be greatly diminished and their ring destroyed.
God's people will have renewed faith that God is truly the Provider.
The main sin behind Racism is mastery. When one group of people claims to be the master of another. We have largely overcome the “mastery” sin from our days of slavery. There are pockets throughout our nation that still simmer with this sin – but for the most part we are a nation who IS realizing the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. The problem therein lies with a few who have learned to stoke the fading coals of racism for their own fame, power and financial gain.
There will be a judgment on the Ring of Power that continues to stoke this fire. Riots and looting followed by curfews and heavy police action will continue and seem never ending.
The voice of Martin Luther King Jr will rise again this time it will be multiplied as God anoints several black and white leaders to increase and displace the Ring of Power. There will be a balance and acceptance of the races once again in our nation, though a deep price will be paid to see this balance come.
Pride in Nationalism:
America’s standing in the world as a world power will be shaken financially and militarily.
Those who think the United States should be the rescuer and policeman
of the world will be shaken to the core in order to set them free from looking to a nation instead of Jesus. America’s Ring of Power will be destroyed during the coming storms in order to make way for the true King of Kings to be on the throne of the sheep nations.
It will also set America free from always having to be the mediator. Our attention and focus can be freed up to homeland security and domestic issues that are causing a weakness in the infrastructure of our nation.
There are also wolves in the Church who have usurped great power over God’s people. Religion and Witchcraft permeate the Church. The Valley of Death will reveal the true from the false. The eyes of God’s people will be opened to their true condition and recognize the places in their lives where they are not truly built on the Rock.
The strength that God’s people gain through this valley will be significant. With their eyes open to their true condition along with understanding how to wield the power of God, the Giants of the Land like abortion, religious freedom and gay marriage will be easily overcome.
The Third Great Awakening that we have been hearing about will begin to find traction. And there will be no stopping the train of unification that happens as the Church lays down their petty offenses with one another and finds a unity in Christ instead of doctrine.
The Valley of Death will serve as a Damascus Road experience for much of the Church. A realization of everything that is false will empower the Church with truth. The power of discernment will increase and
God’s people will lay down human kindness for the kindness of God(click here).
A Holy boldness will rise up in the True Church and they will not be afraid of being called bullies in order to bring the Kingdom of God to earth.
The Ring of Power over the Church is essentially the fear of not being liked. The media, the entertainment world, and the government have learned to use this Ring over God’s people.
It is in the Valley of Death that Believers will put to death their fear of being disliked.
The Ring of Power will be destroyed as the manipulation of being called “mean”will no longer work over God’s people(click here).
I am not looking forward to this Valley of Death – but I also don’t fear it. This Dark Night of the Soul is exactly what our nation needs. The discipline it brings is because the Lord loves us not because He is angry at us. God is actually taking us through the valley to be set free from the power of the One Ring.
It IS a valley. It is not the abyss. We will come out of it and God will restore us. Christ is not returning yet – His Bride is not ready. The Bride will have the opportunity to be cleansed in the Valley of Death. When dawn’s early light begins to shine again after the Dark Night of the Soul – America will be on its way to being the shining city on a hill once again. We will not be the savior of the world but we will shine a light to the One who is the Savior. This was God’s original intention for America from the beginning… to point to the good news of The Spirit of the Lord in which there is true Liberty.
My one prayer in the midst of all of this suffering is that we will be trained by it.
The Body of Christ must understand that our FEELINGS don't matter!(click here)
Let us not walk through such a severe discipline without being changed by it. Whatever may happen in the Valley of Death – let our faith in flesh be the thing to die as we put Jesus on the throne in every way in our lives!
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
