This week the Lord really pressed upon me the need to intercede for the United States and I also knew the Lord had a message to release to the nation.
The eagle has landed
As I was praying for the United States I was taken into a vision where I was looking down on the nation from high above it. I then saw what looked like a huge eagle land on the nation and a heavenly voice said, “The eagle has landed.” I knew the Lord was showing me that He had sent this eagle to the United States and it was a significant spiritual event and a strategic time. I was then taken to a position in front of the eagle and I saw the eagle was actually a large warrior angel. Just as the phrase ‘the eagle has landed’ was spoken by astronaut Neil Armstrong to announce the successful landing on the moon of the United States Apollo 11 module named ‘Eagle’ this phrase was used by the Lord to show me the significance of the angelic assignment the Lord had released to the nation and the fact it was an assignment specific to the United States. It was announcement in the spirit of a significant angelic mission. I knew the warrior angel I had been shown was leading an army of angels to come against the schemes of the enemy and bring about God’s plan.
I then saw the angel was kneeling on the ground on one knee and held a sword that he plunged into the ground in the nation. I knew this represented God’s authority. The verse from Isaiah 59:19 thundered as the sword was plunged into the ground and it was as if this verse was decreed in the spirit over the nation.
Isaiah 59:19 (NKJV) – When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
The Lord then showed me an intense spiritual battle occurring over the United States. The Lord particularly highlighted division and deception as the tactics the enemy had used in an attempt to come against God’s plans for the nation.
The reason the angel was shown to me as an eagle was also because the eagle represents what the Lord is releasing to His body in the United States at this time. The Lord is releasing spiritual sight to see the plans of the enemy and to rise above them. The eagle plunged a sword into the heart of the nation as the Lord is highlighting the fact He is calling His people back to the truth of His word to break deception of the enemy. The Lord is calling His people to use the sword of the spirit to combat the lies of the enemy.
Plan of the enemy to bring division
There has been an intense attack from the enemy to bring division in the body of Christ in America at a time when it is critical to stand united and to partner with the Lord to see His plans and the destiny of the nation come to pass. The nation has such a rich spiritual inheritance and the Lord is calling His people to claim the inheritance of the nation and call forth the destiny of the nation. In a vision I was again taken above the nation and the words ‘UNITED States of America’ were written over the nation. The word ‘UNITED’ was in bold and was double the size of the other words. The Lord then began to speak to me and I heard Him say, “The power of the nation has always been in their ‘united’ stand. At the times when My people align with the lies of the enemy and allow division to enter, My body turns its eyes away from Me and they turn against each other. I am calling My people in the United States to greater unity. As they stand united to see My will established in the nation the sound they release will be like a shield that pushes back the plans of the enemy and takes territory for My kingdom. United they stand, divided they fall.”
Matthew 12:25 (NKJV) – Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.
Psalm 133:1 (NKJV) – Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for the brethren to dwell together in unity!
The Lord then showed me a vision of a huge golden shield forming around the nation as the people of God stood together in faith to call forth the divine destiny of the nation and come against the plans of the enemy. The words from psalm 91:4 (His faithfulness is a shield) were written on the shield around the nation and I knew the Lord was highlighting the need for His people in the United States to remember His faithfulness. The Lord is faithful to fulfill what He has spoken over the nation as His people partner with Him. The Lord is calling His people to stand in faith for the promises He has spoken over the nation.
Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) – Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
Plan of the enemy to bring deception
The Lord is releasing great spiritual sight and revelation to the body of Christ in the United States at this time to see the plans of the enemy and to break the deception and lies of the enemy. The enemy has tried to bring a clouding of the truth but the Lord is bringing clarity to His body through His word and through Holy Spirit revelation. Spiritual sight is being released so the people of God will look beyond the natural and will see God’s hand moving, orchestrating and aligning things in the nation.
I heard the Lord say, “I am bringing the nation back to the foundation of My word and the foundations on which the nation was built. The United States stands for truth and justice. The enemy has attempted to distort the truth but I am raising up those who are calling My people back to the truth of My word and those who are calling the nation to align with My ways.”
Psalm 119:105 (NKJV) – Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path
Psalm 18:30 (NKJV) – As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
Ephesians 1:17 (NKJV) – that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him
The justice of God will be seen
I heard the Lord say, “There has been much injustice in the nation but where the enemy has come in like a flood I am coming to raise up a standard against him. This is a time of unveiling in the nation. I am unveiling unrighteousness and those things which are not in alignment with My ways. I am unveiling the agendas and schemes of the enemy. I am unveiling the hidden ones that have been called for such a time as this. My people will see Me move on their behalf but now is the time to partner with Me to see My plans and purposes for this nation come to pass.”
Daniel 2:22 (NKJV) – He reveals deep and secret things; he knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9 (NKJV) – For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
Rise of the 'red' army
The Lord showed me a great army arising in the nation. I saw these ones were surrendered to Jesus and lived to see His name glorified. They had laid down their own agenda and had taken up His agenda; they had a kingdom mindset. They were eager to take up and steward the assignment the Lord had given them as they were eager to advance His kingdom and they knew the importance of everyone’s part in the army. The Lord called them the ‘red’ army as they overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. They were the overcomers. The lion of the tribe of Judah was leading them and they followed Him and were taking territory.
I saw intercessors arising in power and speaking forth with authority revelation they have received to see plans of the enemy aborted and the plans of God ushered in. The Lord is releasing increased authority and revelation to His intercessors as they partner with Him to bring alignment. They are the ones willing to stand in the gap for their nation and God is moving on their intercession. I felt an urgency from the Lord for more people to take up the call to intercede and stand for the nation at this time.
Revelation 12:11 (NKJV) – And they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and they word of their testimony
Ezekiel 22:30 (NKJV) – So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land
Red, white and blue waves will usher in the golden wave
The Lord then showed me a vision of the USA flag. As I looked at the flag the red, white and blue colours on the flag changed from stars and stripes to waves of red, white and blue. On the flag there was a wave of red, a wave of white and a wave of blue and these waves flowed together. As I asked the Lord what He was showing me I heard Him say, “These are the waves that are coming to the nation, the waves that will usher in the golden wave of My glory.”
The Lord then showed me the meaning of each wave. The red wave represents repentance and the blood of Jesus. I saw the people of God standing united and standing for the iniquities of the past in the nation (just as Daniel did in Daniel chapter 9). I saw the blood of Jesus wash over the land and cleanse the land. The Lord also showed me red represents restoration as God is going to restore what has been stolen by the enemy. Restoration will be seen in the nation on the wake of God’s justice.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV) – If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.
The white wave represents a return to holiness as well as a holy fear of God that is returning to the body of Christ in the nation. The Lord is raising up those who will stand for His ways and truths; people who walk in love and are not ruled by the fear of man but are only obedient to the leading of the Spirit. Walking in holiness is the fruit of being yielded to God and aligning our heart and mind with His ways. We are to seek deeper intimacy with the Lord and renewal of our minds by His word and Spirit. We should be continually transformed to be more and more like His image and character.
Psalm 128:1 (NKJV) – Blessed is every one who fears the Lord and walks in His ways.
Psalm 145:19 (NKJV) – He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV) – But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
The blue wave represents healing and the Holy Spirit. I saw the Lord healing wounds and things that had divided His body in the United States and this healing brought restoration, reconciliation and unity. People across the nation were humbling themselves before the Lord and calling for Him to heal their land. This healing was occurring through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was guiding people into truth and releasing revelation on God’s strategy for advancement of His plans and purposes. The people of God in the United States were uniting under a common banner to see God’s will established in the nation.
John 16:13 (NKJV) – However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (NKJV) - Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
United States of America - there is a spiritual battle over your nation at this strategic time in the destiny of the nation but the Lord has released warrior angels to combat the schemes of the enemy. He is releasing great spiritual sight and revelation at this time and He is calling you to stand united and intercede for your nation. The Lord is calling you to greater intimacy with Him, repentance, holiness, and a return to a holy fear of Him. The Lord will heal the land and restoration will be seen on the wake of His justice. As you partner with Him in his plan for the nation, the glory of God will be seen.
