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!!!
