Exactly two years ago I had a dream with some strategic prayer instructions and insights concerning the demonic manipulation of our children and how the Church needs to respond to this rising witchcraft coming against the next generation. The Lord brought it to my attention as this reality is an even bigger threat now than it was just two years ago. I believe it was also foretelling some of the painful realities we are now facing with abusive life-altering gender-change operations and the normalization of deviant behaviors.
I was with some families on a field. We were watching a woman giving instructions to our children who were gathered on one side of a plot we had prepared. She was telling the children that they were going to receive cuts, bruises, and wounds to their skin. She said it as if it was normal and simply part of the routine.
I could tell some of the other adults were not comfortable with this and murmuring about her instructions. There was a righteous anger rising up and I knew it wasn’t right. We weren’t going to allow this to happen. People began to pray and speak against these instructions. I knew we were pleading the blood of Jesus and binding the enemy. Even so, not much was changing.
However, as soon as I prayed that the Fear of the Lord would fall, this woman immediately fell to the ground, unconscious. I was shocked! Even though all the other prayers were good and right, it was the Fear of the Lord that took her out. Then we looked over at the line of the children on the other side. They were out, too! Only, they were not under the judgment of the Lord, but under the anointing of the Spirit. You could tell that they were receiving an impartation from heaven and encountering the power of His Presence. I laughed as I saw this and rejoiced at the simple, yet powerful reality of this truth.
This dream revealed the power of the Fear of the Lord in our prayers and the need for intercessors to cry out for this simple, yet profound, reality to manifest in our nation. As young people are being targeted with liberal propaganda, seduced into gender-altering operations, and educated in humanistic agendas, we must hear the Lord’s instructions on how to pray so that this demonically driven adulteress will not only stop, but be rendered unconscious! Even as we apply the blood of Jesus over our children and rebuke the enemy, we must also ask for this heaven-sent manifestation of God’s presence and power. Our prayers and intercession may start the process, but it’s the Fear of the Lord that will render the enemy powerless.
Beyond this particular dream, I believe Holy Spirit is also revealing the nature of this supernatural impartation. When the Fear of the Lord comes, it will fall on both the sinner and the saved. No one will be exempt from experiencing the depth and magnitude of His glory and His holiness. For those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, it will be a glorious visitation of refreshment and renewal. But for those who are not right with Him, they will experience the weight of His holiness and the reality of His judgments. This means that carnal Christians and compromising followers will experience the terror of the Lord in order to bring them to true repentance and redemption. Though the warfare in the dream was aimed at the young ones, this reality of the Fear of Lord is far-reaching.
As I have waited before the Lord on this point, I believe one reason we have not seen this manifestation yet is because many believers are simply not ready. As good as the Fear of the Lord sounds to those standing in the gap for an outpouring of His Spirit, the Word of God cuts both ways. It will bring delight to the pure of heart, but judgment to the rebel – even many professing Christians who have not embraced His righteous standard or call to order. In His mercy, He is giving us the chance to make things right, clean out our closets, and prepare our hearts so that we can embrace the glory and not face the terror of His presence.
As we continue to take a stand against the demonic forces aligned against the Kingdom and the rising sons and daughters, let us prepare our own hearts and homes for His presence. Let us pray that the Fear of the Lord would fall in order to shatter the darkness and bring heaven to earth.
Who is the man who fears the Lord? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. (Psalms 25:12-13)
