I invite you to join me each day as we pray for our nation until the election crisis has resolved. I’ll be reading the daily Give Him 15, making comments, and then we will pray together. You can join me here as we Appeal to Heaven for America.
We Have the Keys and We Will Use Them!
In a Give Him 15 post on November 19th, I recounted to you a dream a friend had of Thomas Paine throwing me a football. I caught it and saw that written on the football was the word “triumph.” I then set the football in a nearby stream, which actually becomes a river reaching Washington, D.C. In the dream, I knew something would be released from inside the football once it arrived in D.C., but the dream did not show what that was.
That same person has since had a subsequent dream that showed what happened to the football once it got to D.C. In this dream, she was standing by the Potomac River and saw something floating down the river. The object hit a big rock and exploded. Something flew out of it, through the air, all the way to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. She went there to see what it was. It was an old silver key. Written on the key was the word triumph. That was the same word written on the football. This is when she realized the object she had seen floating in the river was the football I (Dutch) had put into the river at the headwaters of the Allegheny.
When she saw it, her thought was, “Of course it is a key!” The verse the Lord uses to speak to me is Isaiah 22:22, “I will place on His shoulder the key to the house of David; what He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open.” This is fulfilled in Matthew 16 when Jesus says to Peter, “ I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” What we have all discovered is that this is not just my verse, it’s our verse. We have the keys!
We have the keys of authority. Jesus is not going to descend from heaven now and speak into our situation. He’s going to tell us what to say, and we are going to speak! That’s how it works. We are seated at the Father’s right hand in Christ, and He has given us His authority. What the Christ Head does, He does through His Body—that’s us! We’re His Body--His hands, His feet, and His mouth. When we speak for Him, it carries His authority. When we decree His Will, it has the same power and effectiveness as when He says it.
Let me go back to the dream. She picked the key up and looked at it. Then, it began to glow. Her phone “dings” indicating she has a message. The message says, “I am NOT late.”
The scene changes and she is on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. She looks down and there is the “Triumph” key again. Once more it begins to glow and her phone “dings” again. This time the message is in all capital letters, “I AM NOT LATE!”
I am not in denial. I know we need a miracle. I realize what is stacked against us. We are up against a giant. But I also know we can use the keys of the kingdom and giants can be defeated. Use your keys--the authority He has given us and join me in this battle.
“And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Declare, “We will use the keys of the kingdom to do our part in this battle for America!”
Proclaim that God’s purposes for America will come to pass.
Close the door to the enemy’s God-less, humanistic, and globalist plans for this nation.
Intercede for the salvation of those who are opposing the Lord. Most truly do not understand what they are doing and how satan is using them.
Declare that His keys will be used by the Ekklesia to uncover, expose, uproot, and remove every plan against America.
Declare that we will use those keys to secure the future God plans for America. Now, use them!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, we must do our part in this battle for America. We know You have brought us to this battle that is all about You and Your kingdom purposes in the earth. This is all about the great harvest that is coming. It’s about your plans to use America in this hour to accomplish Your purposes worldwide. It’s about resisting those who do not want Your influence in our nation. We won’t allow it! We pray for them to be saved and come to know You. Nevertheless, in Jesus’ name, we insist that these ungodly things taking place in this nation give way to Your Will.
We must use the keys of the kingdom that You have given us. We must bind and loose. We must open up our mouths and proclaim Your Will. We must open doors and shut them. If we do our part, then those working in the natural to uncover and unravel this election mess can do their part. They will see what they need to see, find what they need to find, and bring to justice everything that is currently out of order. We are going to see evil exposed, the reversing of what took place on election night. We ask you to give our nation the victory You planned for us to have that night. We pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
God is not late! We will use His kingdom keys to proclaim His will and this election will not be over until He says it is over!
