Yesterday morning, the Lord laid the nation of Venezuela on my heart, reminding me of a Word He spoke to me while in prayer a week ago over the nation. Venezuela has been in a major economic and political crisis for eight years due to the poor decisions of then president, Hugo Chávez, and now president, Nicolás Maduro. It is one of the most violent nations in the world, and we are seeing a mass exodus of Venezuelans fleeing the corruption, violence, poverty, and seeking refuge and asylum. There is truly a great need for a move of God in Venezuela. Desperation has sank in and the nation is in great need for an answer to the crisis at hand.
Prophetic Word for Venezuela- AUGUST 22, 2018
Change. Change is necessary to see a shaking in hierarchy. There is a place where many would seek to disrupt the already fragile economic systems for their own selfish gain. It is through these that the enemy would like to use to completely cripple the nation unto permanence. There are hidden cells of corruption that the enemy is moving and operating through to bring destruction from the inside out. Yes, many do not even know about them. The enemy would seek to have these cells remain in the dark, unseen by the eyes of big brother.
Surely, I tell you, there will be a shaking take place in the heart repetitively until the powers of darkness’ hold is shaken loose and its restrictive grip around your neck is loosed. No longer will your life be choked out and no longer will you suffocate under the hold and shadow of corruption. Hold on for a time longer and watch as I shake you right-side up.
While in prayer last week, honestly knowing nothing about what is and has been taking place in Venezuela, the Lord released this Word concerning the matters at hand. Little did I know at the release of the Word that the day prior, as well as the same day of the 22nd, there were category 7 and higher earthquakes taking place along the northern coast of the nation, which the capital of Caracas resides along.
We must begin to pray for the nation of Venezuela with great fervency. From this Word, I believe that there will be repeated shakings take place within the land as a manifestation of the shakings taking place in the spiritual realm, as the Lord sifts Venezuela. With so much corruption bearing down upon the people, only death is looming overhead as the strong grip of the enemy seeks to choke out the life of this rich nation. An intervention is needed to redirect the tide of the nation from one of poverty and malnourishment unto fulfillment.
As I write this, I feel the Lord highlighting one key component to all of this. I hear Him saying,
Venezuela was created to be rich in oil. It is the most oil-enriched nation on earth. Nations come to her light to receive the oil of fulfilling. But instead of relying on Me to replenish her sediment, she has sold herself to outlying hands. She has relied on the sustenance and sustainability of others. Those in charge of leading her into greater potential and into freedom has instead led her into starvation. They have torn her down and devalued her to the point of prostitution. Corruption set in and began to eat away at her wealth and health. Death’s hold is strong, but I declare that MY hold is unbreakable!
Watch as I shake loose and break the hold of corrosion upon your very being. You will begin to see life resurface and supernatural, creative miracles take place to restore and regenerate your land into a whole being. No longer will you rely solely on foreign lands to sustain you, but you will see My sustaining hand upon you as you find miraculous growth take place. Corruption uprooted, life established, and you will find that the oil of gladness will so fill the atmosphere that you can smell its fragrance. You will indeed be the most oil-enriched storehouse known to all nations, Venezuela. I will restore your worth and establish you as the vial of the oil of purity.
Isaiah 1:21-28 (AMP)
“How the faithful city has become a prostitute [idolatrous, despicable], she who was full of justice! Right standing with God once lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver has turned to lead, your wine is diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels and companions of thieves; everyone loves bribes and chases after gifts. They do not defend the fatherless, nor does the widow’s cause come before them [instead they delay or turn a deaf ear]. Therefore the Lord God of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: ‘Ah, I will be freed of My adversaries and avenge Myself on My enemies. And I will turn My hand against you, and will [thoroughly] purge away your dross as with lye and remove all your tin (impurity). Then I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning; afterward you will be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.’ Zion will be redeemed with justice and her repentant ones with righteousness. But rebels and sinners will be crushed and destroyed together, and those who abandon (turn away from) the Lord will be consumed (perish).”
