Super(natural) Storm Sandy

Doreen and I are leading a prophetic intercession group for five Mondays, ending on election eve, praying for America and Israel’s elections. Last night at the height of super-storm Sandy, we heard some profound words from Heaven that are worth sharing.

The Lord showed us that the storm was occurring on two levels. The physical storm manifests the supernatural storm raging over America and indeed the world because of the elections. There is war in the Heavenlies. As Paul stated in Ephesian 6, we don’t wrestle with man but spiritual wickedness in high places.

A sister shared from Daniel 10 of Michael, the Archangel, who battled with the Prince of Persia. This same principality is now at war with Israel and America. I believe this storm reflected the spiritual battle over our nation. This would be the supernatural principality over Persia, which is modern-day Iran, the purveyor of Islamic radical terrorism.

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” Daniel 10:12-14

We must continue to pray the Bible and vote the Bible one week from today. Entire nations are in the balance even beyond the United States. The God of Israel, who is rich in mercy, will hear our prayers and will heal our land.

As I was listening to Abba in the afternoon, He led me to Job 37. The entire chapter is quite appropriate, but especially verses 5-13. It describes the current storm, plus it explains how God uses storms.

God thunders marvelously with His voice; ​​He does great things which we cannot comprehend. ​​For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; ​​Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. ​​He seals the hand of every man, that all men may know His work. ​​The beasts go into dens, and remain in their lairs. ​​From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds of the north. ​​By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen. ​​Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; ​​He scatters His bright clouds. ​​And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, that they may do whatever He commands them on the face of the whole earth. ​​He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy. Job 37:5-13

There are three intertwined effects: for correction, for His land, or for mercy. The proper response to calamity for the believer is to cry for mercy, and that is what we prayed last night. We embrace any corrections Yehovah brings and we pray for our land and for Israel. The stubbornly wicked react by cursing God. Yet, the sober reality of the devastation, does turn some rebellious hearts to repentance and the cry for mercy. May God in His mercy still yet bring one more great revival to the NorthEast.

“For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord Yehovah. “Therefore turn and live!” Ezekiel 18:32

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name has been obscured for 2,500 years, but is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!) (for deeper study click here.)

[…] have prayed for mercy for our land through super storm Sandy and the election according to Job 37 (see last week’s post). We know that God is in control either for correction, for His land, or for mercy. I suspect that […]
