The Lord gave Gina Gholston two dreams that have to do with God relighting the fire of His presence in the church, preparing us for what He is about to do. As always, you’ll find Gina’s dreams edifying and instructive. The title of today’s post is:


Let the Fire Burn


Recently, the Lord reminded me of a dream I had in 2022, which I feel is important to revisit. I will only share a few highlights from the dream:

 

I was sitting next to a campfire with another minister. While stirring the embers around the edge of the fire with a long stick, he began to prophesy. “There’s a redemptive sound coming that will provoke a redemptive movement. Referring to this movement, he said, “It’s NOT a light thing! It’s weighty, and it will come forcefully. Hell has tried to stop it, but they won’t! They can’t!”

 

He then lifted a large rock above his head and dropped it into the middle of the fire, causing embers and sparks to fly out in every direction. Very emphatically, he said, “That is what the redemptive movement will be like once the sound is released. It will come hard and fast, and it will cause a response. There will be an instant breaking loose - a redemption. The Lord is going to redeem the Church, and He is going to redeem the nation!”


INTERPRETATION

Among other things, the word redeem can mean, “to renew; to bring back to a former or original state.” I feel this dream describes what we are now beginning to experience. The “Rock,” Christ Jesus, is coming to reclaim what belongs to Him - His Church, and the nations His Father gave Him as an inheritance. The nations may rage, and there are those who plot vain things, but He Who sits in the heavens is releasing the “sound” of His laughter (Psalm 2). Jesus, our Rock and Redeemer, has come to produce a movement that will change everything!


Christ built the Church to be a strong representation of Himself, against which the gates of hell could not prevail. He made us to be a glorious Church, filled with and operating in the power of His Spirit. We are called to carry His fire and be clothed with His glory, to reveal His awesome might! Now, He’s bringing the Church back into alignment with His original intentions, renewing us to be those fiery “embers.” He will work through us to initiate revival, impacting America and the nations with His power and the reality of who He is!


ANOTHER DREAM  

I had another fascinating dream that speaks to this. It was long and detailed, so I will only share the ending: I was with a group of people that was being shown how the plan of God had moved through the generations. Each generation had assignments for their time, enabling the movement to continue into the future. Throughout the dream a lady accompanied us, explaining the details we were seeing.


At the end of the dream, the wind suddenly began to blow. Our guide became very excited and exclaimed, “The wind is blowing again! Hold out the embers you carry! Let them be reignited in the wind!”


The wind intensified. As could only happen in a dream, each of us reached inside ourselves and pulled out an ember. As we held our embers out in front of us, the wind began to reignite them. Each ember quickly became a blazing fire, hot in our hands, but still we held it! We were determined not to allow the flame to fall to the ground and be extinguished, knowing they were necessary for our generation’s part of the plan.


Then, seamstresses with measuring tapes began measuring each of us. I asked our guide the purpose of this and she replied, “You’re each being fitted for the garments you will wear in the coming days.” Then she said, “And your time…starts…NOW!”


It is time for our generation to fulfill our assignment on God’s great timeline. He is restoring and reigniting us to be the Church Jesus intends us to be, unlocking our purpose for this time.


The Lord once said to me, “I am awakening that which is in My Church! There are seeds of purpose I have placed in them that are necessary for this moment, but those seeds have been overshadowed by their emotions. It’s time for the seeds to mature and produce the fruit of My intended purposes!


There’s an unlocking anointing being released from the Light of My Glory! My Light will penetrate and remove the shadow being cast by those emotions, and this anointing will unlock My seeds of purpose! The unlocking of the seeds will relieve the pressure surrounding their minds. They will take deep breaths in My presence, feel My life and vitality rush into them, empowering them to run with the purpose I am unlocking!


We must receive this anointing. It will free us from confinements, allowing us to humbly and confidently walk with God in the fullness of His intentions for our lives. We each have an important purpose for the overall function of Christ’s Body. There are no big or little parts - every part matters to God! We don’t have to fully understand all of His plans, but we must do our part.


We are in a defining moment, a turning point, and God is calling the Ekklesia to deeper revelations and experiences with Him. This will equip us to be carriers of His fire and glory.


The wind is blowing again. Hold out your ember! The Lord has come to reignite in us what is necessary for this time. Allow His fire to burn, no matter the cost, so that with undeniable signs, wonders, and miracles He makes Himself known. The “redemptive movement” has begun; and though hell opposes it, this movement cannot be stopped!


Pray with me:


Father, though it may seem to some that there is no hope for the redemption of our nation, You still reign, and Your plan of the ages has not diminished. You have said that America shall be saved, and You have not altered Your intentions. Release the redemptive sound that will stir and awaken the Church, bringing us back into alignment with Your original plans. As You remove the shadow of “confining emotions,” we will be free to run with Your purposes. We step into the wind of Your Spirit, and by faith, hold out our embers to be reignited. Shine with the light of Your transforming glory, and impact our nation with the reality of Jesus! 


We continue to pray protection over our families and leaders. Protect Trump, Biden and their families from harm. Protect those in Congress, and the Supreme Court Justices. Thwart every plan to harm them. Expose terrorist cells in our nation and thwart their plans, as well. We ask all this in Jesus’ name. Amen. 


Our decree:


The redemptive movement has begun, and hell cannot stop it!

The Unraveling Intensifies


The most corrupt group of people ever assembled in America has been perpetrating the greatest national hoax and crime in her history. The Democrat Party, Deep State, some members of Congress and the Judicial system, and the Media have worked together to frame their political opponents, place a cognitively challenged man in the Presidency, and run the nation with a shadow government. It has been fascinating to watch many of these complicit liars now try and save face, acting surprised at Biden’s mental condition.


They all knew.


Truth, legalities, decency, mercy - none of these things matter to this power-hungry group of Obamanites determined to stay in power and transform America. Nor do the lives of the children they have destroyed, the thousands of people that are trafficked, the hundreds of thousands who have died due to the fentanyl highway they created at the border, or the thousands of terrorists that have no doubt entered our nation and are now waiting to earn their 72 virgins. All that matters to this conscience-seared company of criminals is power and control.


But…Holy Spirit has a vote.


The Unraveling

While thinking about this evil several months ago (February 28, to be exact), I heard Holy Spirit say, “It is all coming unraveled.”


I was surprised when I looked up the Greek word for “unraveled” and discovered that it was analusis,(1) which comes from the root word, luo.(2) This piqued my interest because I knew luo was translated as “destroy” in 1 John 3:8: “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”


The word luo has both legal and physical meanings; this verse is no doubt referring to its legal connotation: 


  1. to pronounce or determine that something or someone is no longer bound;

  2. to dissolve or void a contract or anything that legally binds.(3) 


Placing these definitions into the verse, Jesus came to dissolve the legal hold satan had over humankind; to pronounce that we were no longer bound by him and his works; to void the contract, ending his dominion over us.


There is another relevant passage in which luo is used: Matthew 16:18-19. After making the all-important announcement that He was going to build an Ekklesia (governing body) here on earth, Jesus continued in verse 19: “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven, and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose [luo] on earth shall be loosed [luo] in heaven.”


In interpreting these two verses, the obvious question is: If Christ luo-ed satan’s hold over us at the Cross, and He did, why would the church also have to luo satan’s activities? The answer is two-fold: 1) because satan is a thief and trespasser. The fact that he no longer has a legal right to steal, kill, and destroy does not mean he will not continue to do so if allowed. And 2) God’s plan is to work on earth through His family, the body of Christ. We must enforce Christ’s victory through the authority of His name and with Holy Spirit’s power. We do not have to re-defeat satan, but we must enforce his defeat.


As I pondered all of this back in February, I heard Holy Spirit say, “As the church has been releasing Christ’s authority, binding and loosing [luo-ing] the plans of satan in America, it has enabled Me to unravel [analusis] and expose his plans.”


The next day, February 29, I wrote in the GH15 post:


“God is, indeed, exposing satan’s schemes and plans. Americans are beginning to see just how corrupt our government has become. They see the two-tiered system of justice. They are observing the insanity of plans to remove our borders, destroy our families and children, distort our history, and steal our nation. They see the dishonesty and deceit. They are coming to grips with the disheartening and horrifying truth that for many of our leaders, votes and power mean more than the lives of the American people. The corruption is all being unraveled, enabling the American people to understand what is truly happening. The truth is painful, but necessary. And throughout this year, 2024, the process will intensify. The revelations will be amplified, and Americans will not like what they see.


“This is all part of God’s deliverance process. America is receiving her MRI. That which is hidden on the inside is being revealed, and the level of revelation will increase. We asked for this, and it is occurring, exposing the cancer of sin eating away at the life of our nation.


“Keep praying. Do as Jesus instructed us in Matthew 16:18-19: bind the plans of the enemy; loose, dissolve, untie, unravel his evil schemes. Do as He instructed us in Matthew 6:10—command His Kingdom rule into our land, His will to be done. Ask Christ to pour out His Spirit, bringing life to America’s dry bones and healing our land. Ask Him for revival, the great ingathering, and the transformation of our nation. Yes, grieve over what Holy Spirit is exposing, but don’t be discouraged as you witness it. Be encouraged that we are getting a proper diagnosis in order to receive the cure.


“Don’t allow the shaking to shake you. Determine to keep praying and standing in faith that America shall be saved. Decree it daily. Your prayers are saving our nation and releasing salvation to a billion people around the world. Never stop.”


Pray with me:


Father, thank You for answering our prayers by exposing and revealing our nation’s true condition, even though it is painful and grievous to see. We ask You to continue unraveling the evil structures and plans. Show us where satan has entrenched himself in our nation; reveal his schemes; enlighten us to what must be repented of. Root out evil at all levels. Go deep. We loose this through Jesus’ authority.


Even as we pray against the evil, we ask for the salvation of those who are deceived and partnering with the evil one. Help us to remember that You love the lost, Your mercy is great, and just how powerful a cleansing agent is the blood of Jesus. Keep us from the sins of pride and stone-throwing. Deliver those who are deceived and walking in darkness; open their eyes to truth and the gospel; soften hard hearts. Do these things here and around the world.


We also pray again today for the protection of our family members and our leaders. Destroy every scheme to take their lives, and expose every deceitful plan to assassinate their character. We pray for Donald Trump’s protection from physical harm and judicial injustice. Turn it all for good. We pray for the protection of our water resources and structures, and for protection from all forms of terrorism.


And we ask for the great spiritual harvest. Your plans are on schedule. You change the times and seasons (Daniel 2:21), and You know exactly when to do so. You know when to stop shaking and start saving, when to tear down and when to build up. We trust You.


We pray and release all of this in the name of Jesus.


Our decree:


We decree that the unraveling of evil schemes in America will continue, darkness will be exposed, and truth will prevail.

Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation


Paul had a thorn in the flesh that plagued him for years of his life. No one knows for sure what it might have been. I was born with a thorn in the flesh – my elder brother Tim. From my earliest days, I have had to endure hardship from him as he took my lunch money, bullied me, teased me, and always blamed me when the two of us got into trouble. Now, I find myself having to correct his flawed messages and lack of discernment. Undaunted, I have allowed this to make me a better person.


In the 1980s, God decided this thorn was insufficient, so he brought another into my life: Chuck Pierce. This thorn grew until it reached fullness on our 50-State Tour. No one had ever interrupted my messages to insert their prophetic words and insights until he came along. The first time he did so at our first state, New Mexico, Chuck gave me no warning. Unbeknownst to me, he had asked for a microphone to keep with him on the front row while I spoke, and for it to be left on so he could control when it was live or muted.


I was under a heavy anointing in my message, making a brilliant point, when Chuck felt led to prophesy. He did not wave at me, stand up and wait for me to finish my point, or give any other warning; he simply turned his mic on and, from his seat, began to prophesy. At first it scared me half to death, then euphoria flooded me for a second as I thought God was speaking from heaven, endorsing my brilliance. Shock and confusion quickly followed as I realized it was Chuck. “If you must help me make my points,” I pleaded after the service, “just give me some kind of warning.” This type of unpredictable interruption continued for over a year, in all 50 states. 


ACTUALLY…

Tim, of course, needs no help from me, and Chuck’s prophesying has never been an interruption. Like many of you, I feast on Tim’s books and messages, and am thoroughly excited when Chuck stands to prophesy during one of my messages. (Yes, he does now stand to warn me.) On the tour, he correctly prophesied Saddam Hussein’s capture would occur within the week, the uncovering of a terrorist cell in Tampa, and dozens of other significant events.


The 50-State Tour stretched us immensely, as Holy Spirit made it clear we were not to simply draw from previous teachings for the states, but hear what He was saying to them specifically and deliver only that. (It was a bit harder for me than Chuck, whom I think prophesies in his sleep.) When finished, we compiled the key points given to every state, added pertinent history from each, wrote a few general chapters for context and insight, and put it all in a book: Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation. The book has since become a handbook for thousands of intercessors across the nation.


When our publishers, Destiny Image, were considering a new release of the book last year, they suggested we add a couple of chapters from Tim to further equip the reader as they pray. “Why not?” I thought. “I’ve endured one or both of these thorns all my life.”


“Sure,” I said with a smile, “that’s a great idea!”


And it was. Tim’s added insights were tremendous, giving greater depth and revelation to the book. Though it contains over 500 pages of strategic information, only the first 150 are teachings; the remaining 350 pages summarize what Holy Spirit spoke to each state. Obviously, this section need not be fully read; just find your state’s summary, prophetic words, declarations - and pray accordingly. There is also a list of powerful biblical decrees for you and your prayer group to utilize. Here is a short excerpt from the book:


“I had one more significant encounter with the Lord that prepared me for this [tour] ‘ride.’ It occurred in October 2000, just before the national presidential elections. During a Wednesday night service, I walked to the podium to begin a message when a strange feeling began to overtake me. I paused, trying to discern what was happening, and within seconds, I was weeping uncontrollably as God began to impart to me His heart for America. I did not feel anger, though I’m sure we as a nation have angered Him, but instead, I felt His great love—the kind of love a father might feel for a prodigal child.


“I began to weep so hard that I could not regain my composure. Someone else closed the service, everyone went home, and I was left alone. For three and a half hours, I wept over America—so hard at times that I was afraid I was injuring myself. I felt as though my heart was literally breaking. I did not know one could cry from so deep a place inside.


“Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four-year-old child whose next-door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, ‘Nothing, I just helped him cry.’(1)


“For three and a half hours that night, I helped God cry.”(2)


SADDAM’S CAPTURE

The meetings in each state were powerful. Some were more difficult than others to hear the word of the Lord, but all who were present pressed in, and we were able to hear. Our meeting in Texas stands out to me, probably because of what occurred later that week. During my message, I prophesied that Texas was a prophetic state, and that things would be birthed there for the entire nation. At that time, we were at war with Iraq.


As I spoke, God took Chuck into the heavenly realm, and Holy Spirit told him, “I am going to tell you why you are here. Do not think; just go and decree what I tell you.” So he jumped up from his seat to prophesy, coming to the platform this time. Chuck prophesied:


“There is strength in this state to turn the battle at the gate. Allow your strength to rise up…the heavens are opening tonight, and revelation is beginning to pour out.” Then Chuck said Holy Spirit showed him a nest of snake eggs and began prophesying again, “There are four snake eggs that are lying wait, and from this state, I am giving you the power tonight to crush those snake eggs. I would even say to you in this state tonight, you will be able to decree to Babylon, and that strongman that has not been found will now be found in the next seven days.”


Because of other things being said, prayed, and prophesied, we knew the “strongman” was Saddam Hussein. Chuck handed the mic to me with a look that said, “I can’t believe I just said that! Do something!”


My first thought was, “Why are you handing me the mic? You got us into this situation, you get us out.” But it was too late—I had the mic, and everyone was looking at me. I did the only thing I knew to do - pray. Then, we had several others pray, including a soldier from the 4th Infantry Division stationed in San Antonio.


Three days later, Chuck called me at 4:00 AM and said, “Wake up and turn on your TV; they’re not going to stone us. Saddam was just captured.” Indeed, troops from the 4th Infantry Division had pulled him from a hole in the ground.


Love those prophetic interruptions. (This entire story is shared in the book.)


Pray with me:


Father, thank You for apostolic and prophetic leaders like Tim and Chuck. We pray for them now - that they prosper more and more in their callings, as well as their personal lives. Thank You for publishers like Destiny Image who boldly publish Your prophetic words to the body of Christ. And thank You for the prayer army You have raised up.


We ask for increased revelation to the church. Use this book as part of that process; may it bring You glory. Take the praying Ekklesia to greater levels of understanding Your will and ways so we can partner with You in even greater measure. You said there would come a time on earth when knowledge would increase (Daniel 12:4); surely we are in that time. Let this increase occur regarding our knowledge of You and Your ways.


Empower us with this greater understanding to win, shift, and disciple nations. Pour out wisdom and manifest it through us, even to principalities and powers in the heavens (Ephesians 3:10). Cause Your Kingdom to increase, as You said it would (Isaiah 9:7), here in America and throughout the earth. Continue to shift governments, and set the stage for earth’s greatest spiritual harvest. In Jesus’ name we ask, amen.


Our decree:


We decree that the spirit of wisdom and revelation is increasing in the church.
