Loving Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) greetings! Chag sameach! Happy holiday! This is a time of joyous celebration of harvest and the goodness of God in his provision, remembering how he took care of the children of Israel in the wilderness for 40 years. Even though they were complaining and finding fault, falling into sin and transgressions, and disobedient to the commandments of the Lord for fear of the giants in the Promised Land, God faithfully took care of them because He’s a covenant-keeping Father! He continued providing manna and water from a rock that followed them! Great is His faithfulness! We see new mercies every morning! He makes all things new!
Celebrating this feast is also a rehearsal for the great day when Jesus Christ our Messiah comes to dwell among his people and all the nations will be His people as well as Israel, His firstborn. Israel was the first fruits and the big harvest of the nations is coming in!
The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance:
I’ll briefly quote here from a press release about this tremendous event that will go down in history as a turning point for this nation:
NEW YORK —Multitudes converged on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Friday and Saturday for a historic gathering of a worldwide Christian prayer gathering known as “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.” Believers came by the busloads and joined dozens of internationally renowned Christian leaders as they humbled themselves and prayed for America in what the Bible calls a sacred solemn assembly.
“The Return” was simulcast, televised and streamed on the web around the world to more than 150 nations in nearly 90 languages. The crowd on the National Mall was estimated to be over 100,000. The numbers that watched “The Return” via streaming and social media platforms was over 10 million. Those who took part of “The Return” in places such as Africa, India, and southeast Asia numbered into the tens of millions. Video of the “The Return” became available the next day at TheReturn.org.
President Trump and the First Lady even proclaimed a Presidential Message on the National Day of Prayer and Return on September 26, stating, “On this inaugural National Day of Prayer and Return, the First Lady and I join millions of Christians here in the United States and around the world in prayer, as we turn our hearts to our Lord and Savior.”
Trump also acknowledged America’s distinctly Christian heritage dating 400 years ago to the arrival of Pilgrims on the Mayflower in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and stressed the country’s need to emulate the Pilgrims’ faith. “Following in our ancestors’ footsteps we continue the ‘firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence’ that provides us enduring strength and reassurance in our times of need,” the message stated.
President Trump invoked George Washington’s warning that God will not preserve a nation that turns its back on Him and fails to repent. “‘Propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained,’” Trump said, quoting Washington’s first Presidential Address. “As a country and a people, let us renew our commitment to these abiding and timeless principles,” Trump continued.
The assembly kicked off on Friday, September 25, with a three-hour evening service…. [The] excitement mounted toward the historic main gathering of “The Return” the next day. Saturday’s call to repentance echoed off the Washington Monument — in the same way that the Biblical assemblies of God began — with the sound of the trumpets and an ancient Hebrew prayer. As in the Old Testament book of Joel, “The Return” involved leaders of God’s people coming before God in repentance.
Led by national leaders from all walks of life—actors, athletes, businessmen and women, theologians, and politicians—prayers of repentance wafted toward heaven. The first prayers lifted up were for the repentance of the church and the individual. Then came the prayers of intercession for America and, since “The Return” is also global, prayers for the continents and nations of the world….
My Take: At the end of eight hours of repentance, intercession, worship and exhortation, Jonathan Cahn asked the musicians to play softly without a specific song to allow our Father to do what He would. Within a moment or two, the atmosphere shifted. I could sense the great pleasure of the Lord, and I heard in my spirit the words of 2 Samuel 24:25b, “The LORD was intreated for the land.” It felt like there was a tremendous shift in the spirit and the pleasure and favor of God were released like a flood in that moment. Just blocks away, President Trump was entering the Rose Garden with Amy Coney Barrett, announcing that she was his nominee to the Supreme Court. I felt that even her nomination was a part of the favor of the Lord being poured out in that moment.
We have cried out to the Lord for years, “Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old” (Lamentations 5:21). The turning process came as the remnant stood for the nation and “Returned.”
A number of our ETH&S were in attendance at the Mall, and two spoke and prayed from the podium. Judy Ball and Chris Mitchell were a part of the team that spoke publically while the rest of us participated before the Throne of Grace from other places around the world. Only eternity will show all that was accomplished that day!
2020 Presidential Prayer Call: Quite a number of months ago, Clay Nash invited me to participate as host on a prayer conference call. It started out last year as a once a month event, and now as we get closer to the election, the calls are held weekly on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM Central time. If you would like to be involved, go to this link: https://www.claynash.org/presidential-call-2020.html You can sign up to receive the email reminder weekly which includes details about how to connect via phone. You can also access recordings of the last call or two on that site.
Here are some comments, prayers, and decrees from some of the team of hosts as we have texted together the last couple of weeks:
We are praying for the speedy and righteous confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett as Justice to the Supreme Court. Here are some scriptures that pertain to her confirmation. “And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city” (Isaiah 1:26 ESV)
“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. And let it rain upon this nation and the nations of the earth!” (Amos 5:24 ESV).
“Pro-life isn’t a personal conviction of anyone but agreeing with the Creator and the presuppositions of liberty upon which America stands in Her original intentions. The basis for life, liberty, and pursuit of personal purpose is the Creator. The basis for equality is the Creator. Nothing personal about believing that Roe v Wade was made up based upon nothing but a whim about the right to privacy. It is bad law, bad Constitutional interpretation, and evidence contrary to the Bill of Rights. It cannot be an inalienable right.” —Don Lynch Jacksonville Florida.
“We are at a threshold in this nation. Five entrances: 1. Threshold of justice, 2. Threshold of reckoning, 3. Threshold of awakening, 4. Threshold of outpouring, 5. Threshold of glory.” —Regina Shank
The Lord said, “I have my ekklesia aligned with glory now to do what I need to do. I need my ekklesia to submit to the alignment of Holy Spirit so then there would be the fullness of alignment with angel armies. Holy Spirit and angel armies are always aligned, but we need ekklesia to align with Holy Spirit and angel armies so that My purposes can be released into the earth.” —Jacquie Tyre
“Pray for a boldness in President Trump to do something bold, to draw a line in the sand. God has given this nation mercy. He is now causing a return to the ekklesia’s original intent so that America will return to her original intent.” —Don Lynch
The Lord said, “The enemy thinks he has secured victory in this season, but I am the master of the chess board that the world, man, and satan have attempted to manipulate through humanism, demonic delay and anti-christ agendas. I have sudden moves that satan and corrupt men will not see coming. There will be sudden moves initiated on the game board that will trump evil and corruption and secure victory. Remember that while I hung on the cross satan thought he had won. But I secured the keys he had stolen. In a surprise, not yet seen move, I rose from the grave and defeated death and hell. Don’t think darkness and evil have won. Their defeat and destruction were secured on the cross and sealed by my resurrection. There will be more suddenlies and surprise moves. I will initiate the final secure move of check mate on the game board that the enemy has set in motion among the people and nation. My ekklesia must rise above the roar of chaos and see and discern my victorious eternal throne room position and operate in the victory strategy. The world looks different from the sight of victorious redemption.” —Rebecca Greenwood
“There is an assignment on us to pray for President Trump. There is an assignment on this White House, especially to overturn Roe vs. Wade and to usher in righteousness. President Trump will be used to release mercy. We declare our covenant with death has been annulled.” —Will Ford, III –
“Really feel that we all need to focus prayer for Amy Coney Barrett….a modern day Deborah – judge, prophet, reformer. We also all need to be praying about the exposure of corruption for our elections. It’s starting to happen but feel we need to be decreeing the witchcraft that is covering the wrong doing is being removed and exposing the evil.” —Jane Hamon:
Received this word this morning [September 29] during 4th watch— “Gates and Doors! The Days of Shock and Awe – The Days of Open and Shut are upon you. The Power of My Decree. The Prayers that Avail. I have judged righteousness on behalf of the plaintiff – restoration, restitution, and full recovery for my people. You are in the manifestation of the Luke 18 moment. I have decreed righteous judgements for you My people and righteous judgments you will release into your nation. I will grant you justice against your adversaries. My people have held their position for years – you have not become weary in well-doing. You have continually stood in the gate. Now it is harvest time. We will execute the vengeance on the enemy and the judgement written. I have My: “IT IS WRITTENS”! THE DAYS OF THE DECREE: THE POWER OF THE DECREE! Open and Shut. Repentance is a powerful weapon against the enemy – repentance secures victory! There are leaders in your land that are stubborn and stiff-necked. The case is open and shut- I have decreed removal for those who refuse repentance. Talebearers will be dealt with. The prayers of the righteous prevail – Isaiah 22:22. Kingdom Keys. The day of the decree that immediately opens and immediately shuts. Words and Sentences will be carried out swiftly! DECREE SWIFT JUSTICE ON BEHALF OF THE KINGDOM AND THE RIGHTEOUS!” (9/29/2020) —Betty Love
“Such a powerful word and strong confirmation. Shock and awe is a phrase I have been hearing for quite a while, as have several others. The enemy is attempting a shock and awe, but God has a strategy of shock and awe that will send the enemy reeling, and people clearly confronted with realization that ‘none other but God could have done this thing.’ We just stand firm and contend for full manifestation. —Jacquie Tyre
“Wow! I prophesied this ‘shock and awe’ during Screaming Eagles when I heard myself prophesying that the seat of RBG would be open before the election and filled for the preservation of the tally hassle. The shock and awe phrase was important to bunker busting entrenched, protected foundational structures with hidden agendas within our government. Revealing of leaking turncoats within the White House. This is decisive swift action.” —Don Lynch:
Pray for the President and First Lady for Healing:
Jane Hamon: “As awful as the news is that our President & First Lady have Covid, I hear God saying He is actually keeping them safe right now & will use this for His Divine purpose. Several weeks ago I heard the Lord say we were coming into a time of great unveiling. His glory will be revealed as never before, scales will come off the eyes of prodigals & unbelievers so the light of the gospel can shine but most of all an unveiling of ‘hidden’ things. Let’s believe together that the scales come off our President’s eyes so that he can encounter Jesus during this time and let’s agree the hidden strategies of darkness are being uncovered & discovered. Again, I actually feel this time of quarantine is going to keep the President safe from a plot that was in motion. Another thing is the word occult means ‘hidden.’ There is strong witchcraft at work now, but God is hiding our President from the occultic operations at work. There is also someone in the White House who is there to subvert. Lord expose this person & close the door of access in Jesus name.
Will Ford III: I heard the same thing that Pres. was going to be diagnosed with Covid but God would use it to hide and re-fire him.
Jane Hamon: Tom & I also believe there are a lot of people on the left who are now speaking death over our President. The righteous need to constantly speak (out loud) life, health & strength over him & his family.
Lord, we decree no weapon formed against our President, Melania or their family can possibly prosper. We decree Shalom over them…. Peace Health Life Protection and Strength will drive out sickness & infirmity from their midst. The Shalom of God will destroy the authority of chaos! During this quarantine each of them will encounter the Father in a powerful way & hearts will be changed. Let every word curse spoken individually or by the media …boomerang back on them & actually cause people to turn towards our President & not away. Every curse is being turned to a blessing & everything meant for evil is being turned for the good! In Jesus’ name!
Jacquie Tyre released this message this morning for prayer for healing for the President and First Lady:
As we watch and pray over our President and the First Lady, I share these prayer points for your agreement:
Pray and decree that during their time of quarantine-healing time during the Feast of Tabernacles (which starts tonight at sunset) that they would tabernacle in the presence and glory of the Lord for times of divine encounters that will transform and mark them for the rest of their lives.
Pray and decree health and wholeness would fill their home, and that every evil thing would be turned back at the gate of their dwelling.
Pray and decree that every plot of the enemy to bring harm or injury to our President would be brought to nothing and that the Lord would turn everything the enemy intends for evil to good on behalf of our President, First Lady, and our Nation.
Pray and decree, using the keys of the Kingdom Christ has given us to bind and loose:
— Bind and forbid all panic, fearmongering, accusation, or anything that would cause danger to our President and nation.
— Bind and forbid all that the enemy is doing to cause perverting of the purposes of God in and through our President, First Lady, and our Nation.
— Loose peace that surpasses all understanding over our Nation (One of the Greek words for peace – eirene [G1515] that Jesus spoke when He appeared to the disciples after the resurrection in Luke 24:36 means “a state of national tranquility, exemption from the rage and havoc of war; harmony, concord, security, safety, prosperity.”
— Loose the Light of God’s Righteousness, Justice and Truth over the White House, Capitol Hill, our President and First Lady, and across our nation.
32 DAYS: PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION USA — WAR WORD FOR TODAY: “Truth is now standing in America. The Spirit of Truth will move through the Church. The Spirit of Truth will invade every Mountain of Society. Truth will march through your streets America, your Cities, your States, and your Nation. The Land of Freedom. As a Father to a Son, you will return to me America. For you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you Free. You will be my people and I will be your God. By the end of Tabernacles, America will have had her showdown at the OK Corral – a real Wyatt Earp moment. Lawlessness will be exposed. TRUTH AND RIGHT WILL PREVAIL, DECREE IT SO! DECREE: “AMERICA, YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOUR FREE! HIS NAME IS JESUS!” (10/2/2020; Betty Love)
So He said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32; BSB)
Barbara Yoder: I just received a text from a congressman this morning who said she received the word Veritas, which means truth. Declare truth is going to be shouted throughout the land.
Finally: I shared on last week’s call that we must stand strong for the downfall of the three-fold cord of:
- Delilah (Judges 16) was paid off to use seduction against Samson. Various translators used the words entice, trick, deceive, beguile, and lure to describe her assignment. She probably was killed when Samson pulled down the pillars of the temple of Dagon.
- Jezebel, a Baal worshipper, caused Ahab to build a house of Baal. She was the power behind Ahab and arranged the false accusations and murder of Naboth (1 Kings 17-22). She was thrown down by her own guards and eaten by dogs.
- Athalia (2 Kings 11) When Jehu killed her son Ahaziah, she became a usurper. She had blood on her hands from the massacre of the heirs to the throne. She cried, “treason, treason” when she was the one operating in treason! She was removed from the house of the Lord to be executed outside the king’s house.
Thank you! We are so grateful to each one of you who have been praying for our finances and who have been giving. We so appreciate your heart being in agreement with us to accomplish the assignment this ministry has in Jesus’ purpose in the earth to destroy the works of the devil!
Your handmaiden and servant,
Sharon and Philip
PS As I was just about to send this prayer letter off, I received this urgent word and instruction for prayer from ETH Nancy Carol Morgan:
“My children I am calling you forth to finish this course to get my Trump(et) into place & finish his course (My course) both then & NOW. With my Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur both fresh in the ground the fertile soil of my homeland and all around we shall bring this country USA back to my roots in my ground! I will work my Trump into a full-grown 🌹 – my shoshanna [lily] of My yerushalayim shel zahav [Jerusalem of Gold]. Now do not hesitate nor delay as I will call some to fast in the sacred assembly. But all under My voice shall show forth My power by My spirit within you to surge & course through you & you & you!!! Stand united with Me & turn the tide & course of history.
“Now be My army & ambassadors & together this world will right through what I have and am continuing to set in place to complete fulfill & restore sayeth your Yahweh!”
She also recommended listening to a 7 minute and 23 second clip by Kevin Zadai on Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural Facebook page. It was just posted today. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?ref=search&v=354440205678642&external_log_id=3151d538-2132-4195-872b-6e92132e8aba&q=sid+roth%27s+it%27s+supernatural
He gives other critical instructions for prayer for the elections. LET’S KEEP PRAYING!!!
