ONE MORE YEAR!

I was recently challenged by a word that Eric Metaxas brought to a group of over 500 intercessors in Washington, DC. We were gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Intercessors for America and to consider the mission before us.

Metaxas, who wrote the best-selling book, “Letter to the American Church,” did not mince words. He admonished the Church to WAKE UP – to rise up in her calling to resist and overturn the demonic agendas destroying our nation. Unlike previous seasons where we may have felt we had time to accomplish our mission, the hour we now live in is extremely short. With the 2024 election just around the corner, he believes we have but one year to turn things around and save this nation. We have just one more year to sound the alarm before it’s too late and lose this nation for good.

My first reaction to his words was to resist the idea that it’s ever too late for God to intervene and change things. And yet, as I considered the bigger picture of our collective momentum from the last three years, I realized this moment is time sensitive. This window of opportunity will soon close. A remnant has risen and is fighting the good fight. But even the remnant has their limits.  

Like many others, I wonder if we can even hope for a fair election given past results. Thankfully, that didn’t stop God in 2016. It was the collective prayers and intercession from the saints that broke through the massive corruption to give President Trump that initial victory. But since the stolen 2020 election we have been on a learning curve. We are being tested in our ability to perceive good versus evil and speak up concerning lawlessness and injustice. Knowing what we do now, three years later, our strategies and warfare must change if we are going to see the deliverance we are praying for.

For those who have been championing truth and exposing wolves and charlatans, it has been an intense battle. Shining light on the worldwide demonic agenda, massive media manipulation, and dark deception in high places has been life-altering for many. We are also facing exposures in the Church with various high-profile ministers being accused of immoral and unethical behavior. To be sure, this wakeup call has been unsettling, and yet desperately needed in order to understand the true nature of this battle.

And yet, even as these exposures continue to come into the light, I believe the most important factor that will determine the outcome of this next year – and our future – is not what we expose, but what we AGREE upon. It is our agreement as the Ekklesia of God that will ultimately determine our future. It is our collective oneness of heart and mind that gives us the legitimate spiritual authority to dismantle the principalities and powers aligned against us.

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

Our agreement carries tremendous weight in the spirit, and it is the only thing that will take down the giants in our land. But I’m not suggesting a kind of agreement that simply “meets in the middle” and acquiesces to the opinions of others for some kind of compromise. The kind of unity Paul is speaking about is one of the Spirit and one of absolute truth. It is the KEY to seeing things change – both in the spirit and in the natural. This kind of oneness only happens when we agree on what’s most important – when we remain focused on the real enemy. It’s a determination to keep the “main thing” the “main thing.”

The hijacked 2020 election and weaponized Covid attack caused a wide segment of the population to finally see the global warfare we are up against. Even for those who resist the idea of any “military plan” working behind the scenes with President Trump, the evidence is becoming undeniable that we are being governed and ruled by illegitimate warlords who want us dead. This is the clear and present danger we face.

Since 2020, the list of illegal activities, fraudulent collaborations, and occultic practices has been growing – daily. Every sphere of our culture has been infected and poisoned by these deadly agendas and many voices have risen up to expose their collective madness. Even so, we can’t afford to get stuck on just one issue or plant a flag in just one leader’s camp. Our call for unity must go beyond our preferences and loyalties. Paul’s admonition for unity is actually in the context of a rebuke.

What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?”

If we truly have just one more year to preserve our freedoms and see this nation fulfill its prophetic purpose, we have to come out of our religious circles and conspiracy cliques for a greater cause. We must keep our eyes on the goal and not get fixated on secondary issues. We don’t have to compromise the truths we’ve uncovered or lessen our pursuit for valid information. But we must join our voices in agreement against the Behemoth before us. We must focus our energies, prayers, and conversations on confronting the enemies of God that are plowing through our front door. We must overturn their plan for our annihilation by standing together AS ONE MAN.

So all the men of Israel gathered against the city, united as one man.

The Church must decide, once and for all, that we have been given a voice to speak into the governmental sphere. We must divorce ourselves from any ideology that silences our voice and removes our influence in our nation’s governing policies and practices. God has called us as the spiritual gatekeepers on the earth and we cannot afford to sit on the sidelines while the strongmen come in and take possession (Luke 11:21-23).

Not everyone is going to agree on what’s “really happening” behind the scenes. Regardless of what we believe about President Trump or the Biden administration, we must step up and speak out concerning the dangers we face. We must speak with one voice and one message which declares the Kingdom of God is at hand and the gates of hell shall NOT prevail against it. We must call out the works of darkness and take our place at the city gates to ensure our children have a hope and a future. We must fuel our prayers and worship with Spirit-empowered declarations of the Kings rule and reign. We, the Ekklesia of God, are the only ones on earth that have been given the legitimate authority to decree such a thing and contend for its fulfillment.

If we are going to reach the masses in 2024 to see the national deliverance we are praying for, we must AGREE on our main mission and sound the alarm as one voice. We have been scheduled for extinction and we must come together with one sound if the roar of the Lion is to be heard.  

How do you see the Church coming together in this next year? What do you believe should be the main focus? Please comment below and then share this post with others!

  1. ONENESS! Absolutely One as Jesus said. He and His Father are One. Not a numerical comparison, but a Whole. Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit are ONE GOD. Religion separates us, The Father and I are One Jesus says. Relationship with GOD is KEY for us as the body of Christ. And The LORD has been speaking to me about Unity.

    1. Is our Oneness with the father supposed to be the same as the oneness that Jesus had with his father?
      Is that where our Oneness is going to come from together only as we are one with our father?
      Now all of us can come to the father through the same holy spirit because of what Jesus Christ has done.
      Ephesians 2:18

  2. Concise and timely. Truly a word for now and I totally agree. We must have that oneness in the spirit. There are many nations I pray over every day along with America and in several of them I have seen believers and nonbelievers alike , having seen truth, joining together to come against evil. Like a wave, shoulder to shoulder they rise to crest and crash down on the evil.

  4. Yes and Amen! We need a daily reminder that this is a battle of God versus evil and our enemy is Satan, not one another. Lord Jesus, unite us in Spirit and in Truth as we come boldly against the enemy in the power of Jesus Christ, our Savior, Deliverer and our Peace.

  5. Yes, it’s unity and agreement in the Spirit that we will stand against and defeat the thrones of iniquity over our nations, that will bring the victory. Cindy Jacobs (generals.org) is calling for prayer and fasting and unity among the body to engage in warfare right now. Dutch Sheets also mentioned this. It’s a good start!

  6. Definitely Unity!!! Defining unity means no brother against a brother, sister against a sister, no church denomination against another church denomination, One in SPIRIT!!! We are all made up of spirit. When that light or fire , how ever you see Him, becomes as one, we become an inextinguishable light. Where darkness cannot reign anymore. There definitely is a tremendous work ahead in a short time. Many churches do not even host the Holy Spirit. There are many mindless battles going on within the body, because of all that is being revealed. Old world/new world, vac/unvaccinated, Flat/round earth, millennial reign/kingdom reign, Holy Spirit in disciple times/Holy Spirit present now, nationality against nationality, prophet against prophet, I am right/you are wrong, to much info/I don’t want any more info. You get the picture. Our focus should be on Christ alone who showed us how to live on this earth despite all that is going on around us or even upon us. He taught us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. The ekklesia has definitely been raised up to declare and decree, to bring down these evil strongholds. Many still seem to be veiled. That is a great challenge. We need the power of the Holy Spirit truly working in the body. Words without power are dead works. I see way to many, hurting, sick, spiritually dead, undelivered brothers and sisters. My job is to not only pray for them but to expect the power of the Holy Spirit to move upon the people. I myself am not witnessing much happen. I feel we need a strong move of God to get this ball rolling in 2024 if we are to see a change in a short window of opportunity. I cry out for our future and generations to come, to not be stuck in this repeat cycle of being captured and wandering in the wilderness. Hopeful but also I admit I see it as a crucial time! Unity seems to be difficult in my own home. My heart had much to say reading your post Wanda and I probably could have said much more. I agree with all you said just not completely sure of the remedy, trusting God to show us and lead us daily and even hourly!!!

  7. Thanks Wanda. The Lord keeps bringing the word “offense” to my mind and spirit. We cannot be effective with the spirit of offense distracting and dividing us.

  8. Amen Wanda! I’ve heard Eric Metaxas in person also and his perspective is sobering. A supernatural unity and resolve, doing our part and believing God to do what we can’t.

  9. Thank you Wanda
    I agree totally with what is stated
    Sadly no men responding
    We are quite broken and yet we have all that can be offered but individual government church agendas get in the way
    My focus is Jesus continually in front of me and it’s quite lonely as most others are focused on the argument and not the solution which is Jesus and His warrior Holy Spirit whom is in us because of Jesus and willing and wanting to fight
    God bless you all

    1. And as I typed another man commented
      Men are also under represented across the board
      I mean God fearing men
      There’s no shortage of men out there (globally)

      1. My observation also…
        MEN…WAKEVUP AND STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOUR LAND, DWELLING, FAMILY, BELONGINGS … LUKE 11:21

        1. Yes. And amen. And my church never pray for our nation or anything outside of us. I meet with a group who pray twice a month and it’s got unity. From various churches. But we need more discernment

  10. Oneness with JESUS is my First thought as well as seeking that Oneness via HIS Word & time with HIM. That’s a start & things branch out from that personal relationship to the collective imo. We need the purity that comes from that Oneness with Christ. That will carry US i hope.
    Thank you Wanda for sharing The LORD’s Heart. Much appreciated.

  11. ““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭17‬:‭20‬-‭23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    God has repeatedly and frequently shown me 11:11. When I asked what He meant, I felt Him say it was the Eleventh Hour.

    eleventh hour
    noun
    The latest possible time.

  12. Praying for unity of our FATHERS Sons and Daughters in JESUS mighty precious name that our nation be filled with the Glory of our LORD, that all the inhabitants of this earth would see HIS Glory and know HIS great love for them! That the darkness would be swallowed up by all of our light!

  13. I’m so happyly blessed that I finally see your podcast. I’m awake but I know I must be wider awake I willing to be the voice only for my Yeshua

  14. In Acts 26:24-32 when Paul is in prison, Felix & his wife visit him and have conversations. Then: they walk away, admitting Paul has done nothing to be in prison, and THEY DO NOTHING!
    Will that be us?

  15. Barbara Bodiford
    Wanda I so appreciate your insights as the Lord speaks to your heart. The only thing that I can see to bring unity is the Lord’s prayer. Let’s pray for God’s Kingdom to come and His Will to be done on earth, in America, in the nations of the world, As it is in Heaven. I think our hearts and minds most likely agree with God’s desires. Yes there will be many practical outworkings, using people to establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, and that will take time, and many differen’t perspectives and applications. I’m thinking in relation to the 7 Mountains Mandate.
    God bless you and your obedience.

  16. Well said, Sister Wanda. We men need to wake up and step up to the plate with our sisters in arms.

    We pray you and Brother Bobby will have a safe and enjoyable cruise next week. May The Lord richly bless you both in the days ahead!
