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.

Today’s decree:

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!

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 Must Keep the Atmosphere Opened Up!

We know that whoever controls the spiritual atmosphere will control the war. We also know that the war is in the invisible realm. We are going to open the atmosphere and prepare the way forward for all of the cases coming into the courts. The voices of the voters and their representatives must be heard.

You can find all of the litigation, pending cases, and updates here. You can sort the cases by state, as well. Focus on Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico. This election will not be over until all of the cases filed by the Trump Campaign or the opposition are heard, unless another constitutional option occurs. (See the GH15 post for November 20th.)

Beginning last Saturday night, we went to 4 key states: Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, and Wisconsin. We are going to the other 2 tonight and tomorrow night. We began in Georgia. During the 50-state tour Chuck and I did in the early 2000s, the Lord had said that Georgia was “the Governmental Gate state that will cause the aligning of the nations.” What could be more clear today? Georgia is one of the states that will decide how this nation will align with the rest of the nations of the earth in the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom. The Trump Campaign has asked for another recount of the votes in Georgia—this time with a verification of signatures!

This year, Chuck Pierce spoke a Word over Michigan in which he said they must not mask their voice. He said, “Begin to speak! Don’t mask your voice! Let the voice of God be heard!” Voting machine issues were found in Antrim County and 47 other MI counties. This raised a red flag over the use of the Dominion software. It was used in at least 28 other states. Media is trying to make it appear that the software, proved to have switched over 6000 votes from Trump to Biden, did not make a difference in the election results. That makes no sense! Michigan, raise your voice! Cry out against this fraud! Open the airways to the truth! Command the truth to get in the light. Write your governor, Secretary of State, County Elections Commissioners and legislators. Something is amiss in Michigan! Use your voice in the spirit and in the natural.

The leadership in Arizona made a strong statement that, like Nehemiah, they are not coming down off the wall. There are those who mock and tell us to give up, even within the church, but we are not coming down off the wall until we see God grant us victory. Arizona is standing on Micah 2:12-14, “I will surely gather all of you, Jacob; I will surely bring together the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture; the place will throng with people. The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the Lord at their head.”

When I visited Wisconsin in the early 2000s, the Lord showed me that there was a spirit of unbelief in the church keeping them from believing there could be a “suddenly” move of God. He said this demonic fruit of the religious spirit had to be uprooted, so that the early harvest of God could come in. Wisconsin, you are meant to see the first fruits of the Third Great Awakening! This election gives Wisconsin an opportunity to get out of their intellect and into faith in the Spirit. It’s time to proclaim reversals and “suddenly” answers to prayer.

The Trump Campaign has paid for recounts in Dane and Milwaukee counties where there are serious concerns about the validity of mail-in and absentee ballots. The campaign stated that absentee ballots may not have been appropriately checked for validity before being counted, among other things. The media is spinning this as President Trump “trying to stop the counting of votes in Wisconsin.” President Trump wants all valid votes counted and all invalid votes thrown out! That is the only way you have a fair election! Take authority over this blatant twisting of the truth right in front of our eyes by the media. Declare that they will not get away with this. Believe the Lord for a “suddenly” decision of a fully valid recount in those two counties.

“A curse will fall on those who say the guilty are not guilty. Nations will ask for bad things to happen to them. People will speak against them. But it will go well with those who sentence guilty people. Rich blessings will come to them.” (Proverbs 24:24-25; NIRV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Worship the Lord over America. Acknowledge Him as the Judge over this election process.

  • Pray in the Spirit over the atmosphere and airwaves of America. Decree that the media, government officials, and partisan judges will not twist or block the results of this election any longer!

  • Examine the cases before the courts and pray into them as the Lord leads.

  • Over Georgia, say, “Enough of these recount games! Let the truth be known! The nations are awaiting the valid results of the 2020 elections in Georgia!”

  • Over Michigan, declare, “The voice of the Lord will be heard from the people in Michigan. Their unmasked voices will be heard in the Spirit and in the natural and will determine the 2020 election result!”

  • Over Arizona, proclaim, “Be bold and be brave. Don’t listen to the enemy’s mocking voice. Do not get off the wall of intercession until a victory has been secured in America!”

  • Over Wisconsin, decree, “Wisconsin will rise up and make decrees in faith over the 2020 elections, casting off a religious spirit and breaking off all doubt and unbelief! They will see a “suddenly” decision for a full recount of votes in Dade and Milwaukee counties that will divide valid and invalid votes so that the true winner of the 2020 election is known!”

A prayer you can pray:

Father, we worship You, King of the Universe. You are just and righteous, merciful and good. You honor truth and lead those who look to You for wisdom. We open the atmosphere with our worship and acknowledge You as Judge over our election process. We ask You to stop satan from twisting and turning the thoughts and opinions of people. We ask that truth will prevail! We ask You to prepare the hearts of the judges to hear the truth and rule with righteousness and true justice. That is all we want—righteousness, truth, and justice. We ask that media, government officials, and partisan judges will not be allowed to twist or block the results of this election!

We take authority over the election debacles in Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, and Wisconsin today. We decree over Georgia, “Your officials can no longer hide the truth from the voters. There will be a full recount with signatures checked and the true results of this election will be known! The nations of the earth will be affected by the 2020 elections in Georgia!” We declare over Michigan, “Unmask your voices and let the voice of the Lord be heard over the elections in Michigan. Voice your concerns to the Lord, over the state in the Spirit, and in the natural until you have determined the 2020 election result!”

Lord, we come into agreement with Arizona’s Ekklesia. We proclaim with them that like Nehemiah, we will not come down off the wall or be distracted in any way by those that would mock us. We will see victory in America! America will finish well! Finally, we decree over Wisconsin, “Wisconsin, rise up and make decrees in faith over the 2020 elections and you will see a ‘suddenly’ decision. Demand a full recount of votes in Dade and Milwaukee counties that will divide valid and invalid votes so the winner of the 2020 election can be accurately determined.” Thank You for hearing us, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

The Ekklesia will control the atmosphere and open the airways for the resolution of the 2020 elections.

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.

David Faces Goliath

“’Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has taunted the armies of the living God.’ And David said, ‘The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.’ And Saul said to David, ‘Go, and may the Lord be with you.’” 1 Samuel 17:36-38

“Then David said to the Philistine, ‘You come to me with a sword a spear, and a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted. This day the Lord will deliver you up into my hands, and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. And I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that the Lord does not deliver by sword or by spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give you into our hands.’” 1 Samuel 17: 45-57.

You can read the rest of the story later. David, the shepherd boy, spent hours daily with his Heavenly Father, while walking the fields watching over his father’s sheep. Unbeknownst to him, while serving his earthly father he was being prepared for the battle to save his nation from the giants.

The king wanted David to wear his armor to fight Goliath. But David knew his armor was spiritual, and that he was armed with something greater than what man could see. Even his weapon of choice was simple and unsuspecting. God chose this mis-matched young man with a hand-made weapon to fight for his nation. And with one powerful thrust, the smooth stone found its mark and Goliath fell to the earth. Before the dust even settled around him, David took Goliath’s own sword and removed his head.

While this story is a bit gruesome, nonetheless, it is a picture of our fight with a giant today. We are warring against lies and injustice. As we do so, we must move in the authority of Christ. It is fascinating to me that there is no record of David asking God to help him when He faced Goliath. He already knew God’s will. So, he simply declared his faith that God would assist him, and what he was going to do to the giant.

David was actually being very biblical when he operated in this manner. Job 22:28 states, “You will decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.” Somehow, David understood this principle. What some would have considered arrogance, David understood as a sword in his mouth (Ephesians 6:17). And if we are going to take out today’s giants, we will need the same weapon - spirit-led decrees that become the sword of the Lord when released from our mouths.

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Consider the fact that David declared his faith and intent before facing the giant. Let it remind you how important it is to declare your confidence in the Lord.

  • Declare that the battle is the Lord’s! As we continue to follow the leading of Holy Spirit in how to pray, we know that You will answer.

  • Put on your spiritual armor and take up the sword of the Spirit – the word of God – and declare the word of the Lord over America.

  • Be assured that God has prepared us for this battle, just as he did David.

  • Remember that we use spiritual weapons infused with power from on high. In prayer, we do not battle what we see, but rather what we do not see with our earthly eyes.

  • Think about the giants we face in our land today as well as any giant in your personal life. Remind yourself that God is far greater.

  • Just as David did, we trust in Him to give us the victory!

Pray this with us:

Lord, we are well aware that it will take a miracle to turn this election. We are truly facing a giant but we are not intimidated. We know You are our strength. You are the great and mighty One. You are the Captain of the Host and angel armies. You will fight for us, just as You did for David. You are able to see what we cannot see. You can lead us to intercede exactly the way You need us to pray. We ask You to direct every “stone” --empower our efforts. Give us victory in the name of Jesus.

We pray for President Trump. We ask you to give him strength and wisdom. We pray for his legal team and other legal teams at local levels, that you would give them wisdom, strategy, information, and provision. Give them the key to victory. We boldly ask you to expose corruption in this election and give us a fair result. We ask you to intervene quickly. We thank you in Jesus’ name. Amen.


We will boldly face the giant of fraud in this election until we see righteousness prevail.
