Last night the Lord dropped a bombshell off in my heart. I was immediately quickened to the fact that the following day, today, the nation of Ireland would be voting to repeal the 8th Amendment of the Constitution and the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act in the land protecting LIFE. The motion would be to change the law that has been in place since 1861, where abortion is considered a criminal offense in every form of the matter, except in extreme cases where the life of the mother is at risk. Ireland is one of the most Pro-Life nations in the world and has stood for life and the protection of the most voiceless, defenseless lives on earth. This divine act came upon the heels of the Revivals that broke out in Ireland a few years prior. I truly believe that such a heavy outpouring of Holy Spirit swept across the nation, bringing sinners to their knees in repentance, and as a result a mighty wave of Righteousness ensued.
In recent years, Ireland has jumped on the liberal agenda in legalizing divorce and becoming the forerunners in legalizing gay marriage. These moves of the enemy have launched us into here and now, the Battle for LIFE. If the repeal is passed, Ireland would now allow abortion up to 12 weeks legally, which means that Irish nationals would no longer have to venture to surrounding nations, at much cost, to carry out the death sentence of God’s most precious ones.
In all of the reality, horror, and urgency arising in my spirit upon this discovery, I was reminded of a word the Lord gave me back in October about the nation of Ireland. I never shared it, but I feel now is the time of releasing, calling forth watchmen upon the walls to stand in the gap for the most marginalized, voiceless people group in the world. After much research, I discovered the Lord had revealed this word shortly after a liberal women’s march at the beginning of October in favor of repeal. NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND FOR LIFE. TO NOT STAND IS TO FALL TO OUR KNEES IS DEFEAT.
Word of the Lord for Ireland, October 17, 2017-
The Lord says, “The winds of change are blowing. Much change will soon take place as a shifting in the heavens takes place. Ire-land, what was once a place of manly prosperity will become a place that is MY-land. IRELAND IS MINE! Every earthly stronghold will lose power as I sweep in and take back what I created.
Yes, Ireland will truly be a place of shelter to the nations. A Kingdom prosperity will arise as this shift takes place. There are many wells, yes, ancient wells that I am uncapping across the land. A rich heritage paves the way for a releasing of wealth among the inheritors. Many will see and be amazed by the treasures buried beneath the rocks and dirt and junk that time uncultivated has plugged up. But BE AMAZED as I wash away all of the grime and debris to reveal the eternal treasure inside. Yes, watch as it springs forth once again!”
Isaiah 45:3 (NASB)
“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.”
Deuteronomy 6:10-12 (NLT)
“The Lord your God will soon bring you into the land he swore to give you when he made a vow to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is a land with large, prosperous cities that you did not build. The houses will be richly stocked with goods you did not produce. You will draw water from cisterns you did not dig, and you will eat from vineyards and olive trees you did not plant. When you have eaten your fill in this land, be careful not to forget the Lord, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt.”
Brothers and sisters, IT IS TIME TO STAND just as Esther did when the gloom and shadow of death loomed over an entire nation of people! When we stoop down so low as to offer our unborn children upon the altars of selfishness and self pleasure, only death will come for us. The Word of the Lord is clear- When innocent blood is shed, blood will be the requirement in recompense. If we do not stand up and cry out for justice, the rocks will. As stated by Lou Engle, “Abortion is not a justice issue, it is a righteousness issue.” “When the most marginalized, voiceless, helpless people group have no voice, where is the moral outcry?”
I believe that the Lord wants to uncap the treasures stored up from the revivals of old in the nation of Ireland, the ones of which crossed oceans and changed the world. Waves of righteousness stretched forth and touched everything then. We must pray for divine intervention and waves of righteousness to sweep across the nation of Ireland now! Waves of Repentance come forth right now! Do not choose to be silent, for help will come from elsewhere, while you and your family perish. Esther heeded this warning and stood in the gap for her people, determining in her heart, IF I PERISH, I PERISH. Out of her sacrifice and obedience, the nation was saved.
Rise Up and beckon the Lord with us to step in and utterly destroy the works of the enemy. National boundary lines mean nothing, we are One Body. What affects one part of the body affects every part. The enemy cannot have Ireland, She belongs to the Lord, in Jesus name!!! Righteousness will Rise!!!

In my prayer time yesterday morning, the Lord directed my prayer focus and released a very important word and warning for the nation of Egypt.
Prophetic word of the Lord for the nation of Egypt on May 22, 2018:
The Lord says, “Egypt, you spend so much time seeking the approval of surrounding nations and like an orphaned child, you have been left abandoned and empty. Your focus on others has caused you to neglect your own and as a result, your house is descending into ruins. If you continue to sell yourself for the appeasement of those who are against Me, only desolate ruins will you see.
I have not forgotten the good deeds you have done. Yes, I know and remember how you sheltered My Son when death sought Him out. You sheltered Him for a time
under your wings. Upon your peaks, I housed My Presence and spoke My Word forth for all generations. If only you would turn your face away from the evil that the enemy is plaguing your heart with, masquerading as good will and intentions. The enemy sought out death and destruction upon My children in times past and in turn, it suffered death in the deepest forms as recompense.
You seek to control, taking matters into your own hands, trying to boost your failing economy and systems. You will continue to fail miserably until you turn your face to Me.
Who do you think you are to decide who of My creation deserves life? Who do you think you are to try and control what only I have the rightful power to ordain? You wonder why you have lack and why you have seen failure. You have not placed your trust in Me to provide for you in times of growth, so you instead are seeing times of lack and drought.
Egypt, I desire you to flourish and to be filled with overflowing life. STOP trying to do it your own way and LET ME LEAD! I AM the Only One who knows how to bring you into a season and place of fruitfulness, with fruit that will remain. If you will come to Me, I will not leave you as orphans. I will nourish you as a newborn babe receives nourishment at its mother’s breast. I will bring life to your land and show you how to prosper, if you will surrender your own will and intentions to Me. If you will bend and bow your will to Mine, I will place in you a leader who will bring you into the prosperity that I wish to release to you, one who will govern you into right principles and living. Change is coming. It is up to you which kind of change you wish to see in your nation.”
Isaiah 19:1-25 (NLT)
This message came to me concerning Egypt: Look! The Lord is advancing against Egypt, riding on a swift cloud. The idols of Egypt tremble. The hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear. “I will make Egyptian fight against Egyptian— brother against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, province against province. The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will confuse their plans. They will plead with their idols for wisdom and call on spirits, mediums, and those who consult the spirits of the dead. I will hand Egypt over to a hard, cruel master. A fierce king will rule them,” says the Lord, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The waters of the Nile will fail to rise and flood the fields. The riverbed will be parched and dry. The canals of the Nile will dry up, and the streams of Egypt will stink with rotting reeds and rushes. All the greenery along the riverbank and all the crops along the river will dry up and blow away. The fishermen will lament for lack of work. Those who cast hooks into the Nile will groan, and those who use nets will lose heart. There will be no flax for the harvesters, no thread for the weavers. They will be in despair, and all the workers will be sick at heart. What fools are the officials of Zoan! Their best counsel to the king of Egypt is stupid and wrong. Will they still boast to Pharaoh of their wisdom? Will they dare brag about all their wise ancestors? Where are your wise counselors, Pharaoh? Let them tell you what God plans, what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is going to do to Egypt. The officials of Zoan are fools, and the officials of Memphis are deluded. The leaders of the people have led Egypt astray. The Lord has sent a spirit of foolishness on them, so all their suggestions are wrong. They cause Egypt to stagger like a drunk in his vomit. There is nothing Egypt can do. All are helpless— the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed. In that day the Egyptians will be as weak as women. They will cower in fear beneath the upraised fist of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Just to speak the name of Israel will terrorize them, for the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has laid out His plans against them. In that day five of Egypt’s cities will follow the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. They will even begin to speak Hebrew, the language of Canaan. One of these cities will be Heliopolis, the City of the Sun.
In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to the Lord at its border. It will be a sign and a witness that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to the Lord for help against those who oppress them, He will send them a savior who will rescue them. The Lord will make Himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know the Lord and will give their sacrifices and offerings to Him. They will make a vow to the Lord and will keep it. The Lord will strike Egypt, and then He will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to the Lord, and He will listen to their pleas and heal them. In that day Egypt and Assyria will be connected by a highway. The Egyptians and Assyrians will move freely between their lands, and they will both worship God. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth. For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, My people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, My special possession!”
Beloved, we must be praying for the nation of Egypt in this time and season! There is a critical window of opportunity that will greatly shift the direction of the nation and it is in that window that the fate of the nation will be revealed. Much will be taking place to either make or break the nation. Now is the time to call forth LIFE and a dramatic shift in governing bodies to ones that will overthrow the thrones of darkness erected from outer influences.

A few days ago, I made mention of how the Lord moved mightily during our Sunday morning service. After a few days dwelling on what the Lord released and how He crashed in on our plans and took over, I am ready to share a bit of what took place.
Church on Sunday morning was truly incredible and completely normal for God! During worship while in prayer, I felt Holy Spirit fall on me powerfully. I saw in the spirit a portal open in the supernatural realm and a pillar of swirling water descended upon the altar area. The sound of a mighty rushing waters began to increase in volume as I watched the waters churn. We just happened to be singing out of Isaiah 6, when Isaiah saw the Lord in His Temple and our worship and praise were being poured out like incense to the Lord. From the same opening that the pillar of water descended came an angel that was clothed in the brightest blue garments I have ever seen and it was his special assignment to churn the waters. He began singing, dancing, and spinning in praise within the waters and as he did, his wings as they touched would clap a thunderous sound as they stirred the waters. These were waters of divine and total healing.
The Lord reminded me of John 5 and the pool of Bethesda. John 5:1-4 (TPT) says,“Then Jesus returned to Jerusalem to observe one of the Jewish holy days. Inside the city near the Sheep Gate there is a pool called in Aramaic, The House of Loving Kindness. And this pool is surrounded by five covered porches. Hundreds of sick people were lying there on the porches—the paralyzed, the blind, and the crippled, all of them waiting for their healing. For an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.” It goes on to say that there was a man who had been crippled for 38 years who laid beside the pool, always waiting for the angel to come and descend into the waters to stir them, awaiting eagerly his chance to enter the waters and be healed. There was just one problem though, he was unable to get into the waters himself. He required assistance and because only one person could receive their healing each time the angel came, and because hundreds with afflictions came awaiting the very same thing, he would always get passed over.
Jesus notices him there helpless and asks if he truly wants to be healed. Because of mounting disappointment and discouragement, having missed his chance countless times before, the man replies in verse 7, “Sir, there’s no way I can get healed, for I have no one who will lower me into the water when the angel comes. As soon as I try to crawl to the edge of the pool, someone else jumps in ahead of me.”
How many of you can say you relate to this man? He spent 38 years debilitated, void of a truly free life. When he saw an out laid right before him, he waited at the water’s edge for who knows how long. His freedom was laid right before him, within reach, yet he was unable to lay hold of it. After all of the discouragement, he began to believe he would never get his healing. He recognized his need for assistance but due to hope deferred, he was blind to the Healer standing before him.
Perhaps there’s pain, sickness, affliction that you have been dealing with for a long time or for someone else. Perhaps you’ve been praying for healing for years only to see no results. Perhaps hope deferred has made your heart sick. (Proverbs 13:12) Perhaps you’ve become so used to the pain that it has become part of your identity and you’ve learned to just deal.
The Lord spoke to me when seeing the healing waters on Sunday that He wanted to release divine healing in the room, especially for those who had dealt with affliction for a long time. We released that word and called people forward to jump into the healing waters. While praying for people, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge that there was someone dealing with chronic pain for a long time and He wanted to heal them. No one came forward for it, so Jesus pointed the man out to me. Jeremiah and I went to pray for him and he knew I read his mail when we walked up to him. I told him I knew it was him and he said that he had been dealing with severe arthritis for four years and had chronic pain in his wrist and knee. We told him Jesus pointed him out because He wanted to heal him and asked if we could pray for him. He said “okay” and as we were praying, I asked if he felt anything different. He said there was a little change and that he could deal, that he was fine. This man is an example of many of us, just like the crippled man. We come to a place of either believing that this is our life now or that others need the healing more than us and that we can just deal. When we believe that others are worse off and need the healing more than us, we submit to that lie and are basically limiting God’s power, saying that He has a limited supply of healing.
So with the crippled man, Jesus responded to him in verses 8 and 9, “Stand up! Pick up your sleeping mat and you will walk!” Immediately he stood up—he was healed! So he rolled up his mat and walked again! Now this miracle took place on the Jewish Sabbath.” Jesus offered his healing but it required action on his part. Either he could lie there and remain in his identity of being crippled or he could choose to believe Jesus and respond and step into his original design. Thus we return to Proverbs 13:12 for the second and most important part, “but a promise fulfilled is a tree of life.”
Jesus did miraculous miracles that day. I had also got a word of knowledge about a rotator cuff and before I could say it, Jesus had healed a woman who had a torn one and had been unable to lift her arm for seven months! There was another woman who had separated vertebrae and was in constant severe pain, unable to cope. She woke up that morning in so much pain, she almost didn’t come to church. She didn’t want to take pain meds because they make her fall asleep. She came to church in excruciating pain and Jesus came as she was in the waters and completely healed her! No more pain!!! YES, LORD!!!
Beloved, these miracles are for each one of you today just as they were in their time. The same Jesus that healed in these moments is the same Jesus that sees your need and wants to give you a tree of life! We must not allow ourselves to identify with the afflictions upon us, but press in and press on into the healing waters set before us! Jesus has MORE THAN ENOUGH of what we need when we need it! Reach out and take hold of His blessing today!

This past Sunday during worship at church, the Lord began to give me a vision that at first was a bit cloudy to me. It began to form but I struggled to understand and see it clearly. It took me coming home and spending the next two days seeking the Lord for clarity of the vision to receive the fullness of it. Here it is:
I saw the nations of the U.S. and Russia appear from an aerial view position. Then I saw the faces of Trump and Putin appear over their nations. Afterward, I saw an exchange of missiles launched and flying over the ocean. I knew that Russia was launching attacks on the U.S. I heard the words, ‘preemptive strike’. Russia was full of pride and hate and I knew they were launching strikes in full confidence that they were in supreme power. But I felt that this strike would result in a failed attack because God’s hand of favor was upon the U.S. The Russian missile was destroyed out over the ocean before it even reached the U.S. I saw Putin freak out, yelling in anger at the defeat that had occurred. This was his attempt to weaken, decimate, and hinder the U.S. in a desperate attempt to gain control of an already lost situation. The power of the U.S. (and God’s power over it) is perceived as a great threat to Putin’s seat of global power. Most interesting is that the response missile on the U.S.’s behalf began to dissolve upon approach of the Russian borders. I sensed and felt that the Lord is using this brief reprieve as a warning and last grace given to Russia to give up fighting against what the Lord has established and turn to the Him. Every form of opposition to the Lord will have monumental impact as a whole.
The Lord said, “I hate communism! There is not a single thing that I like about it. It is oppressive, I hate oppression. It is restrictive, I hate restrictions. It is destructive, I hate destruction. I bring freedom and life. The enemy is the bringer of communism. Russia, this is not about a power struggle between nations. This is not about who has more weapons or manpower. This is about what I long to do in the nations. Russia, you are hated and despised by many because of your evil heart and the corrupt actions that flow from it.
Nevertheless, I love you and desire that you would turn from your wicked ways and return to Me. Open your hardened, closed off heart to Me and let Me come in to heal, reshape, and renew you. Make no mistake…if you do not take heed of My word and return to Me in brokenness and in repentance, your healing will not come. I have plans for you, Russia…great plans, if you would only give up your thirst for power and surrender to Me. I am not willing that any of My little ones perish. Open up your heart to Me, Russia.”
I began thinking about the words, ‘preemptive strike’ and what that could mean. I looked it up to get a clear understanding of its meaning and here is what I found: “a first strike attack with nuclear weapons carried out to destroy an enemy’s capacity to respond. A preemptive strike is based on the assumption that the enemy is planning an imminent attack.” Now, I do not believe that this meant that there is going to be an actual nuclear missile/war to take place. I believe it was an attack of some sort from Russia in an attempt to debilitate the U.S. and prevent any future possible offensive moves on the U.S.’s part.
There have been many attempts on the Russian side to come against the U.S., the country with the greatest resources in the world right now. I believe that the Lord’s hand of favor is upon America right now. Putin is a dictator and has been leading his people far away from the Lord, siding with the evil one. His heart has been hardened and callous to the Lord and that is evident through his approval in the ban of sharing the Gospel within the borders of the nation. With the dissolution of the missile upon the Russian borders in my vision, I believe that this it is a sign of the grace of God to turn the heart of Russia back to Him. He gives grace upon grace, even when we do not deserve it. His love for Russia is deep and His pursuit unrelenting.
Brothers and sisters, it is not time to freak out and get caught up in the news and media. It is not time to get caught up in theories, theologies, and opinions. It is also not time to become apathetic to the reality at hand. When we start feeling nothing towards the injustices and problems around the world, our hearts have become just as calloused as those who have turned from the Lord to follow other gods. When we fail to seek His heart for the circumstances being presented, we fail to be the sons and daughters we are called to be. It is time to stop hating Russia for the past, present, and future and realize that God loves Russia. He loves His creation and though His remnant remains, He longs to raise up burning ones among the nation to carry the Gospel with fervor and zeal to all nations. He wants the hearts of all in Russia, just as in every nation to turn to Him. Healing, restoration, and freedom comes when we realize our wickedness, turn to Him, and repent.
Philippians 1:28 (AMP)
“And in no way be alarmed or intimidated [in anything] by your opponents, for such [constancy and fearlessness on your part] is a [clear] sign [a proof and a seal] for them of [their impending] destruction, but [a clear sign] for you of deliverance and salvation, and that too, from God.”
2 Chronicles 7:13-15, 19-22 (NLT)
“At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to every prayer made in this place.
But if you or your descendants abandon Me and disobey the decrees and commands I have given you, and if you serve and worship other gods, then I will uproot the people from this land that I have given them. I will reject this Temple that I have made holy to honor My name. I will make it an object of mockery and ridicule among the nations. And though this Temple is impressive now, all who pass by will be appalled. They will ask, ‘Why did the Lord do such terrible things to this land and to this Temple?’ And the answer will be, ‘Because His people abandoned the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt, and they worshiped other gods instead and bowed down to them. That is why He has brought all these disasters on them.’”
