The Reversal of Evil Decrees
Hello and thank you for joining me today for Give Him 15. We are excited about today's post because we have a very special guest and friend with us today. Jane Hamon is the wife of the incomparable Tom Hamon, and daughter-in-law of Dr. Bill Hamon, the person whom I consider to be the patriarch - the father - of the modern day prophetic movement. I love this family dearly - we go back a long time. We run together, pray together, work together, and it's just a real honor to have Jane on with us today. There will be a link provided for you at the end of today's post so you can check out their website and what they do. There are many wonderful books they've written that will help instruct you on the prophetic and interpreting dreams, etc.
For these GH15 interviews, I don't tell these prophetic friends of mine what to do, what to say, or where to go. I just want to know what they're hearing from the Lord that is a current word for the church or the nation. I want them to share what we need to hear from the Lord, perhaps where we need to go, or what strategy God may be bringing to us. I'm just gonna flip it to Jane now and let her take it from here.
Jane, thank you for joining us today. What are you hearing Holy Spirit saying to us?
Jane begins to share:
“Thanks, Dutch, it's always a pleasure and an honor to be with you. I love the Give Him 15s. I think they're absolutely revolutionizing the church world today and discipling nations by the messages that you're bringing on a consistent basis. I'm really excited to be here with you because I have a message that I think the Lord has put on my heart for this season.
“On June 15th of this year (2022), I was out on a ministry trip and rolled over in bed in the middle of the night. As Dutch knows, I have a lot of dreams. I don't know if this was a dream or exactly what it was, but as soon as I was awakened, I heard the spirit of the Lord say, “Tell the body of Christ that it's time for the hanging of Haman's ten sons.” I got up and wrote it down. I really had no idea what that fully means, but I know that it is a time of demarcation in the body of Christ. Of course, this refers to the book of Esther and a time when God was releasing His judgment and His justice into a land. An evil, wicked man named Haman wrote an evil decree of death and destruction against God's people and he hated Mordecai. I think Mordecai is a representation of Holy Spirit, but Haman didn't count on the fact that Esther, who was a Jew and one of God's people, was queen. Just to dissuade you of any idea that the book of Esther is a Cinderella story about a young orphaned girl that marries a powerful King, that is not what the book of Esther is actually about.
“Esther is about the modern day church. Esther is about the church that's rising up to answer a call, even the church that's rising up to say if I perish, I perish. It’s about a church rising up to realize that we've come to the Kingdom for such a time as this. It’s a church that understands we can go before the throne of the king and have a scepter of favor extended to us, and release decrees that actually shift a nation. I believe that this is the message God is putting upon the church today. There is an overturning of demonic decrees, an overturning of things that have been set in motion.
“What Haman's decree did, is it designated a certain day that said wherever in the land you find a Jew, you can kill them, and you can take their property. In Esther chapter seven, we actually find that God exposed this plan, this plot, and also exposed how Haman was coming against the queen. In Esther chapter seven, the King ordered Haman's death. Actually, the way Haman was killed was the King ordered him to be hung on the gallows that Haman had prepared for Mordecai. I believe that we're in a season right now where God is giving the enemy enough rope to hang himself.
“Back in January of 2021, we were praying about what was going on in our nation. I heard the Lord say something very simple. He said to tell the people I'm up to something. I had a feeling I wasn't going to really like the long process that was going to be involved, but God plays the long game. God is not always interested in the short run but He's interested in the long game. I firmly believe God is working on behalf of America and we're coming into this season when we're going to see a lot of the plans and schemes of the enemy boomerang back on his own head.
“Let me read you the Scripture regarding Haman’s ten sons. It says in Esther 9:24, ‘Haman son of Hamadatha the Agagite, the arch enemy of all the Jews, had schemed to destroy all Jews. He cast the lot to throw them into panic and destroy them.’ Let me just say this to you: do not panic. God's up to something. Don't freak out - God is up to something. I'm telling you, He hears our prayers. He hears the decrees. God's ear is not deaf and His arm is not too short to save. It says that he tried to throw them into panic to destroy them, but when Queen Esther - the Ekklesia - intervened with the king, he gave written orders that the evil scheme Haman had worked out should boomerang back on his own head. Haman and his 10 sons were hanged on the gallows Haman had built for the Jews. That's why these days were called Purim.
“Now listen: Purim, in the Hebraic Culture, is called the holiday of reversals. About seven years ago, the Lord started speaking to us. Dutch, I think it was 2015. You and I were both hearing from the Lord about it being a season of reversals. This is the seventh year of that. Seven is the number of completion, perfection, wholeness, finishing, and covenant. I believe that we are in a covenantal season of seeing some things reversed that God set in motion even seven years ago. I think it's amazing that God spoke this to me on June 15th and on June 24th, we saw the overturning of a decree of death and destruction with the overturning of Roe versus Wade. But here's the thing: in Esther 7, Haman was hung on the gallows, but in Esther 8, Esther's still coming before the king saying…you know, King, we need a reversal of this decree. You see, Haman was dead, but his decree wasn't dead yet. Roe versus Wade is dead, but abortion is still an issue in our nation. It's as much an issue now and for the midterm election as it ever has been. God is serious about dealing with the full effects of the decrees of Haman. I'm not saying that abortion is the only thing, but the enemy has set some things in motion. So, Esther came before the king and asked if he would overthrow Haman’s decree. The king's response to Esther was: You yourself write a new decree! That's the authority we've been given. Write it in the king's name, seal it with the king's signet ring. Whatever you write in the king's name cannot be revoked. Esther called Mordecai and they sat down and wrote a decree, as the king had asked.
“I was studying this when I was in Atlanta where you and I were speaking at the Atlanta City Gate conference. The amazing thing is that I was studying this out a few days before, and it actually says on the 23rd day of Savon in the Hebrew month, Esther and Mordecai wrote this decree. I can't even tell you how many times I’ve read the book of Esther, but it just occurred to me that day…I wonder what day the 23rd day of Savon is on our Roman Calendar. I googled it and it was the very day I was studying - that exact day! I think it was June 21st - the exact day I was studying about this. It was as if God was drawing a giant exclamation point. I'm telling you this is for now. This is the NOW season of this word for the body of Christ. They wrote this decree that authorized the people of God to fight back against all the works of darkness that the enemy had been sending against them. I love what it says in the very last verse of Esther chapter 8. I want you to hear this because we are warring, we're contending, we're praying, we're decreeing, we're doing spiritual warfare for our nation, but the goal isn't just to war. The goal is to see awakening and revival, and souls saved into the harvest.
“Look at this: on the 23rd day of Savon they wrote this decree. It was dispersed to the different parts of the land. In Esther 8:17 it says, ‘In each and every province and each and every city, wherever the king’s command and his decree arrived, the Jews celebrated with joy and gladness.’ They had a feast and a holiday celebrating these reversals. By the way, when we're in Christ, every single day is a day of reversal. The gospel message - start to finish - is a message of reversal. It is a message of seeing the curse turned into a blessing for us. It is a message of breaking. The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. We are breaking his authority off a people, off a land. But watch this - it says, ‘Many of the people in that land became Jews for the fear of the Jews and their God had fallen upon them.’ That is revival. Only the day before the Jews were afraid that they were about to be killed. Now the people were not wanting to kill them but to become one of them! Isn't that amazing! It was such an incredible turnaround.
“Then in chapter nine we see this other turnaround that happened. All these governors, all the satraps, and all the leaders in the land were pretty much in league with Haman, but now he is dead. In Esther 9:1 it says, ‘On the very day that the enemies of the Jews hope to have power over them, the reverse occurred.’ Instead God's people now had power over those that hated them.
“Let me say that in Esther 9, things broke out and it ended up being a lot of battling in the streets. Our battle is not with flesh and blood. Let me be clear about that: our battle is not with flesh and blood but it's against principalities and powers and rulers of darkness in high places. Our battle is a spiritual battle. But in the Book of Esther, they wiped out the enemy. In the midst of that, they took out Haman's ten sons. In that process, in verse 9 it says even all the officials, the provinces, the chief rulers, the governors, and those who attended to the king's business - all the government - turned and supported the Jews in defeating their enemies. This was because the fear of Mordecai and his God's power had fallen on them. I'm telling you we're going to see the fear of the Lord come upon our land. The fear of the Lord will come upon some of our government leaders. We're going to see some miraculous reversals in the coming days. Blinders are going to come off people's eyes and they're going to say…man we need to be on God's side…we need to be on the side of saving a nation…we need to be on the side of revival…we need to be on the side of turnaround.
“Now let me just wrap this up by saying Haman's ten sons were also hung on the gallows. When I really study about Haman in the book of Esther, it says that he was an Agagite. Agag was the king of the Amalekite tribe. The Amalekites come from Esau; Esau and Jacob were always battling. But the interesting thing is that every time you see the Amalekites in Scripture, they're robbing from Israel, they're battling against Israel. It really goes to John 10:10 that says the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus said I've come to give you life and life more abundantly.
“The name Amalekite means plunderer. It is the robber, the thief - the thief of destinies, the thief of nations. I'm telling you, God is very serious right now about dealing with Haman and all 10 of his sons. Their names mean rebellion, apathy, complacency, witchcraft, fear, intimidation. I don't have time to go into all of that today, but I'm telling you God is very serious about dealing with the thief that comes to steal, kill, and destroy our individual lives but, also our families, our prosperity, our peace, our posterity, our legacy, and even the prophetic destiny of a nation.
“Dutch, I believe we're coming into a very serious season of God overturning. It's going to be a little chaotic - kind of like it was in Esther 9, because people must make some decisions about how they're going to align. But I believe that we're coming into one of the greatest days of turnaround of our nation and the earth that we’ve ever seen.”
“Amazing and absolutely incredible. You know, sometimes when I listen to people like you and some of my other friends who get this amazing prophetic revelation, I remember (this is not very spiritual) a Batman movie where the Joker sees all these contraptions Batman has and asks, ‘Where does he get these toys?’ I think, Where do they get all this revelation! It's just an example to me of why we need the prophetic anointing. God can take the Scriptures, bring them into today, and show us what He's saying for us TODAY - like you've done here. And then, of course, it drives you to study and find out what these names mean and get the prophetic symbolism. It's just incredible and it's so encouraging.
“I can't tell you how many people I've heard - at least four or five in the last few weeks - talking about boomerang and reversal. This is a great confirmation from Scripture of what God is about to do. Frankly, I had forgotten that Purim was a celebration - the holiday of reversal. But God's about to reverse things. We have to persevere. Our timing is not always God's timing but that's because He's doing so much more than just the one thing we are praying and believing for. God has the future in mind - He has the big picture in mind, millions of people in mind. He's always doing something more.
“This is incredible. I'm sure our friends can probably hear the full message of this if they go to your website, you probably have something there. I know you have incredible books. I want you to go take a look at Jane's material because you will be blessed.
“Before we go, Jane, just lead us in prayer regarding what you’ve shared today. Jane, this has been so powerful.”
Jane begins to pray:
“Father, we thank You for Your times and Your seasons. Lord, You see the end game. I thank You, Father, that You have put it on the heart of a company of people, an Ekklesia, to rise up during this season of time. We're going to take back everything the enemy has stolen. We're going to take back our kids. We're going to take back our grandkids. We're going to take back our destiny. We're going to take back our finances. We're going to take back peace and joy and vision.
“But, Lord, we're going to take back our nation from the hands of the enemy. You're going to break the hold of the conspirators in the spirit - those things that have been sent against us (that’s what Haman’s 10 sons were). Lord we thank You that You're breaking the yoke. You're hanging them up and declaring this is the end of Haman's reign. We thank You, Father, that Jesus did this when He defeated principalities and powers. He held them captive and made an open show of them. Lord, I believe You're going to make an open show of the enemy and his plans. The schemes are going to boomerang back on his own head.
“We decree: it's a boomerang season of revival, a boomerang season of reversals, and a boomerang season, Father, where we take back everything the robber has taken from us. I thank You, God, for eyes being open. And Lord, if anybody's discouraged, I'm telling you to begin to stir yourself up in the spirit, because God is saying: I'm up to something powerful. Powerful things are ahead.
“So, Father, I bless every single listener, and thank You, God, that You're assembling an Esther Ekklesia in this season of time that's going to turn the world upside down. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.”
Dutch ends by saying:
“Amen, amen. I agree completely. Thank you so much for being with us today. I appreciate your family: Tom, Bishop. All of you do such wonderful work for the Lord.
“Thank all of you for joining us today and I look forward to seeing you again on Monday. God bless you.”
