The U.S. and Russia: A Preemptive Strike




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.’”

Come to Me! Do not forget that I am the God who saved you and made a way. Through Jesus, you can be saved from sin and death, set free from bondage and destruction, and healed of sickness and backsliding.

Intervention for Syria



Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad



While in prayer yesterday morning, the Lord began to press very heavily in my spirit the situation taking place in Syria. He then spoke a pertinent word about what will come:


“Every soul is precious to Me. For far too long, the enemy of your souls has invaded with intent to destroy, yes, completely obliterate you. The value of life means nothing to him, which is why he delights in going after the most innocent ones. 

The silence of the media to your injustice has not fallen to deaf ears. It has fallen upon the ears of My sons and daughters who have been warring on your behalf; and those prayers and petitions have arisen to My own ears, along with the cry of injustice. 

You are not forgotten, Syria! Many have cried out to Me to enter in and to intervene on your behalf. I AM justice! I have looked and seen the lack of justice for you and I AM stepping in. I am starting by removing the corruption in your governmental covering. The profit being made off of the souls of the nation for illegal purposes is coming to an end. Your leader, Bashar al-Assad sold his soul over to the devil long ago. He has led enough of his sheep to the slaughter. Enough is enough! Indeed, he will be removed from office and his campaign will cease. The hold he has possessed over you is coming to an end. 

Because the prayers and petitions of My righteous ones on your behalf have met My ears, I will bring in someone unexpected to lead you into a new era of renewal and rebuilding. The enemy intended to bring in someone far more evil and destructive but the bold ones seeking Me have triumphed in prayer over the enemy. He will be one who welcomes the aid of helping nations as they come to rebuild your homes. Yes, you will see your children coming back to you upon the horizon. From the farthest reaches of the earth they will return to you. 

No longer will you weep and mourn as you hold your lifeless babies in your arms. Yes, the tears will end. No more weeping, no more sorrow. Light will begin to sweep across your land to bring a new dawn of hope to you. Be amazed at what I do! There is nothing that can stop what I am doing. No power or principality can stand in the way. What was lost will return to you and in all these things, you will draw near to Me. Never forget that I draw near to the broken-hearted. And as you lean into Me, I draw even closer. Truly, Syria will be alive again! The brightness of your rising will be a beacon of hope to nations still stumbling in darkness. The darkness will not remain for much longer. Turn to Me and find all you need.”


Isaiah‬ ‭60:1-3‬ ‭(AMP)

“Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”


Isaiah‬ ‭60:4-5‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)

“Look and see, for everyone is coming home! Your sons are coming from distant lands; your little daughters will be carried home. Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy, for merchants from around the world will come to you. They will bring you the wealth of many lands.”


Isaiah‬ ‭60:15-18‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)

‭‭“Though you were once despised and hated, with no one traveling through you, I will make you beautiful forever, a joy to all generations. Powerful kings and mighty nations will satisfy your every need, as though you were a child nursing at the breast of a queen. You will know at last that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel. I will exchange your bronze for gold, your iron for silver, your wood for bronze, and your stones for iron. I will make peace your leader and righteousness your ruler. Violence will disappear from your land; the desolation and destruction of war will end. Salvation will surround you like city walls, and praise will be on the lips of all who enter there.”

Isaiah‬ ‭60:19-21‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)

“No longer will you need the sun to shine by day, nor the moon to give its light by night, for the Lord your God will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set; your moon will not go down. For the Lord will be your everlasting light. Your days of mourning will come to an end. All your people will be righteous. They will possess their land forever, for I will plant them there with my own hands in order to bring myself glory.”

Let us continue to pray that the Lord’s redemptive, restorative work will be done in Syria and that divine intervention will take place to eradicate the enemy strongholds in the land. Enough is enough with the innocent bloodshed.

God of the Breakthrough 

Word of the Lord-

“A great and mighty fire is coming to consume all of My enemies. Not a single demonic force can withstand My fire. My plans for My children are so great that I do not have time to allow the enemy to hinder, distract, and blind My children. I am utterly obliterating every demonic assignment sent to destroy the callings that I have created. An eruption of praise will rise and burst forth from My children as they see this victory made manifest in their own lives. 

So much weight has been upon the shoulders of My Bride for so long and that weight has left her feeling inadequate to step into My Presence for fear of dismissal. This deception is a complete lie from the pit of hell and I am entering in to trample upon it and to silence the lying tongue of the enemy in the ears of My children who are supposed to be entering into Kingdom living. 

There is a wealth of outpouring awaiting the revelation and awakening of the inheritors to take what is theirs and to STOP waiting on the sidelines, longing for what others have taken hold of. Yes, there is a portion stored up for each one, specifically designed accordingly. Peace will guide your path in laying hold of it and embracing it. 

Fear no more, My Beloved! Take hold of Me and My love and go all in with Me! Hold back no more! I desire to give it all just as I have already given it all for you to receive what is yours.”

Isaiah 66:12-15 

This is what the Lord says: “I will give Jerusalem a river of peace and prosperity. The wealth of the nations will flow to her. Her children will be nursed at her breasts, carried in her arms, and held on her lap. I will comfort you there in Jerusalem as a mother comforts her child.” When you see these things, your heart will rejoice. You will flourish like the grass! Everyone will see the Lord’s hand of blessing on his servants— and his anger against his enemies. See, the Lord is coming with fire, and his swift chariots roar like a whirlwind. He will bring punishment with the fury of his anger and the flaming fire of his hot rebuke. 

Beloved, the winds of change are swiftly blowing. Nothing will stand in the way of what Jesus has planned! All week, the lyrics to the song, “Wave After Wave” by Andrew Hopkins has resonated in my spirit: “Our God is the God of the breakthrough, He’s clearing out paths, making ways through.” That is exactly what He is doing and now is the time to embrace and lay hold of our inheritance. He is coming soon, the fire-brands are being made ready. Rise up, sons and daughters of Zion!

Let Peace Lead the Way

Word of the Lord-

“A new wave of peace is coming upon the wind of outpouring! 

The enemy in this last year has been hard at work to steal the peace of My children and to bring trials and tribulations that seem impossible to overcome. He has worked hard to delay and get in the way of the destiny and blessings that I am prepared to pour out. 

The plans and direction of many have changed because of the opposition as well as the reaction that many have responded in. The lack of obedience of some who have stepped into discouragement instead of victory has caused a shift and redirection of the plans laid out for others. 

Nevertheless, I work all things together for the good of My children for I have called them to carry out My plans and purposes in the earth. I am marching forth like a mighty Lion to roar over your circumstances to say, ‘Enough is Enough!’ and to silence the enemy and to end his tirade. 

I have shifted the plans of many but the enemy is doubly defeated because when he thought he could put an end to My plans, he only provoked Me to double the defeat. He may have only delayed those plans; but you see, I will accomplish not only the new plans but My original blueprint and promises will still come about, just at a later date when all interference is completely destroyed. I am victorious in it all! I am for you! What a fool the enemy is! 

Take heart My chosen ones! Discouragement will no longer hold you back! My promises fulfilled are your tree of life!”

Proverbs 13:12 

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. (NKJV)

When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life’s sweetness will satisfy your soul. (TPT)

Psalm 24:6 

This is the generation description of those who diligently seek Him and require Him as their greatest need, Who seek Your face, even as did Jacob. Selah. (AMP)

Psalm 24:7-9 

So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny! Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this Glory-King?” The Lord, armed and ready for battle, the Mighty One, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in. (TPT)

Right By Your Side

Daily Encouragement –

What do you seek? Who do you have by your side when times get rough? Who is standing with you?

I am The God of the Universe and the only True God! You try to make so many powerless things into gods, including yourself. Nothing has any real power, nothing is eternal outside of Me!!! I am eternal!!! My word and power will stand forever! What else could you ever find that will last forever? 

Even though I rule over everything eternally, I have chosen to come close and bless you! I have come to be God with you! I am not just above and beyond, but right here with you, by your side, in the hardest and roughest times. 

Come to Me! Fear Me! Follow Me! Watch what I will do as you seek Me! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (God with us)”

8:13 “The Lord of hosts, Him you shall hallow; Let Him be your fear, And let Him be your dread.”

Vs.19 “And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living?”
