Prophetic Intercession



There is a type of prayer, a type of intercession, that connects so deeply with the heart of The Lord that the prayer becomes a mighty prophetic utterance to and for the nations. 



I ask you to set some time apart to pray, get quiet before The Lord then read the Book of Habakkuk. Open your heart to the relationship between Habakkuk and The Lord. See how The Lord used the cry of Habakkuk's heart to speak His Will into The Earth. 

I believe with all my heart that the appointed time is now. I believe that The Lord is about to do a mighty thing in The Nations that will astound many, and yes cause many to fear greatly.

Listen carefully to what He is saying in His response to Habakkuk. 


The cry for the oppressed and against the oppressors has gone out since the Blood of Able cried out from the ground. The culmination of all things is upon the earth, the fulfillment of every prophecy concerning the closing moments of time will begin to unfold rapidly. Prepare your hearts, and heed the warning of The Lord.  Trust in Him. Always seek righteousness and don't side with the devil in order to protect yourself. Trust Him.


 



Habakkuk 1

New King James Version (NKJV)
The burden which the prophet Habakkuk saw.

The Prophet’s Question

Lord, how long shall I cry,
And You will not hear?
Even cry out to You, “Violence!”
And You will not save.
Why do You show me iniquity,
And cause me to see trouble?
For plundering and violence are before me;
There is strife, and contention arises.
Therefore the law is powerless,
And justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.

The Lord’s Reply

“Look among the nations and watch—
Be utterly astounded!
For I will work a work in your days
Which you would not believe, though it were told you.

He Hears, Sees and Will Act!




He sees their tears
He sees their fears
He sees the affliction, year after year!!

He hears the cries
He hears their sighs
He hears the anguish of those despised!!

He will move His Hand
He will come against, the proud in the land
He will defend the defenseless, and evil men will not stand!



Isaiah 1:17
Amplified Bible (AMP)


 Learn to do right! Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, and correct the oppressor. Defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.



Psalm 41:1-3

Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.

The Lord protects them
and keeps them alive.

He gives them prosperity in the land
and rescues them from their enemies.

The Lord nurses them when they are sick
and restores them to health.



Psalm 82

God presides over heaven’s court;
he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings:

“How long will you hand down unjust decisions
by favoring the wicked? Interlude

“Give justice to the poor and the orphan;
uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.

Rescue the poor and helpless;
deliver them from the grasp of evil people.

But these oppressors know nothing;
they are so ignorant!

They wander about in darkness,
while the whole world is shaken to the core.

I say, ‘You are gods;
you are all children of the Most High.

But you will die like mere mortals
and fall like every other ruler.’”

Rise up, O God, and judge the earth,
for all the nations belong to you.



Luke 4:18-19
New King James Version (NKJV)


“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me

To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,[a]

To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,

To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord



Acts 10:34-38
Amplified Bible (AMP)


And Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,

But in every nation he who venerates and has a reverential fear for God, treating Him with worshipful obedience and living uprightly, is acceptable to Him and sure of being received and welcomed [by Him].

You know the contents of the message which He sent to Israel, announcing the good news (Gospel) of peace by Jesus Christ, Who is Lord of all—

The [same] message which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee after the baptism preached by John—

How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.

The Church!




Let the following verses speak to your heart. I am posting this for a specific group of people that I believe The Lord wants to speak to through His WORD. Allow The Holy Spirit to open your heart and eyes.

I was going to post a long explanation of what I hear The Lord saying. However The Word is Alive,Active and Powerful enough to speak clearly to those who have an ear. Let us cast off all that hinders, and be all we are called to be. The Church!


Ephesians 3:10-11
New Living Translation (NLT)

 God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.



Matthew 16:18-19
New King James Version (NKJV)

 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”



Acts 10:34-43
New King James Version (NKJV)


 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

  And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed by hanging on a tree. Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”

Open Your Eyes and SEE!



The cry for many to humble themselves has gone out for almost 20 years now. The judgement of the oppressors has been building for centuries in the Western World. The blood of the slaves and oppressed is crying out from the ground. The voice of the laborers and exploited children is crying out and has reached The Kings ears long ago.

The defender of the poor and oppressed will move His Mighty Hand and all will know He is the judge of the living and the dead. JESUS IS LORD.



Psalm 9
New Living Translation (NLT)


I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.

I will be filled with joy because of you.
I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.

My enemies retreated;
they staggered and died when you appeared.

For you have judged in my favor;
from your throne you have judged with fairness.

You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
you have erased their names forever.

The enemy is finished, in endless ruins;
the cities you uprooted are now forgotten.

But the Lord reigns forever,
executing judgment from his throne.

He will judge the world with justice
and rule the nations with fairness.

The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
a refuge in times of trouble.

Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.

Sing praises to the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem.
Tell the world about his unforgettable deeds.

For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless.
He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.

Lord, have mercy on me.
See how my enemies torment me.

Snatch me back from the jaws of death.

Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates,
so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.

The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others.
Their own feet have been caught in the trap they set.

The Lord is known for his justice.
The wicked are trapped by their own deeds.

The wicked will go down to the grave.
This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.

But the needy will not be ignored forever;
the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.

Arise, O Lord!
Do not let mere mortals defy you!

Judge the nations!
Make them tremble in fear, O Lord.
Let the nations know they are merely human.



Psalm 10
Passion Translation{5 Fold Media Dr. Brian Simmons}
www.5foldmedia.com


Lord, you seem so far away! Why do you stand so far off
As though you don't care?
Why have You hidden Yourself when I need You the most?

All this time the arrogant in their elitist pride
Erupt with persecution against the poor and helpless.

May you pour out upon them
The very evil they planned against others.

How they brag and boast of their cravings, exalting the greedy.
They congratulate themselves as they despise God.

These arrogant ones, so smug and secure
In their plots and plans, they reassure themselves by saying:

"There is no God. There is no need of Him.
There is nothing to worry about!
Our wealth will last for all time"

So seemingly successful are they in their schemes,
Prosperous in all their plans and scoffing at any restraint.

Yet all this time they are unaware of His anger:
Not understanding that their day of judgment is ahead.
The Exalted God they deny will soon declare their doom!

They boast that neither God nor men will bring them down.
They sneer at all their enemies, saying in their hearts

"We'll have success in all we do and never have to face trouble"

Yet all the time not knowing that they speak this in vain.
Their mouth spout out cursing, lies, and threats.
Only trouble and turmoil comes from all their plans.

Like lions lurking in the shadow of the city,
They crouch silently in ambush for the people to pass by;
They pounce on the poor and catch them in their snare,

They murder their prey in secret!
They plunder their victims presuming them all as inferior.

They crush the lowly, falling beneath their brutal blows,
As their victims collapse in defeat!

Then they say to themselves,
"The Lofty One is not watching while we do this,
We can get away with it!"

Now is the time to arise O Lord! Crush them once and for all!
Don’t forget the forgotten and helpless.

How dare the wicked think they will escape in their evil,
Believing that You would not call them to account for all their ways!

Lord, I know that You see all that they're doing,
Noting their each and every deed.
You know the trouble and turmoil they've caused.

Now punish them thoroughly for all that they've done!

The poor and the helpless ones trust in You Lord,
For you are famous for being the Helper of the fatherless.

I know you won’t let them down.

Break the power of the wicked, and their arms of strength.
Search them out and destroy them for the wickedness they have done

You, Lord, are King forever and ever!
You will see all the nations perish from off Your land

Lord, You know and understand all the hopes of the humble
And will hear their cries and comfort their hearts, helping them all!

The Orphans and The Oppressed will be terrified NO LONGER,
For You will BRING THEM JUSTICE
And no one will trouble them!



Psalm 82
The Passion Translation{5 Fold Media Dr. Brian Simmons}
WWW.5FOLDMEDIA.COM


All rise! For God now stands up to judge
As He convenes heaven's courtroom!

He judges the judges and rules over the rulers! Saying
"How long will you judges refuse to listen to the voice of True Justice
And continue to corrupt what is right
By judging in favor of the wrong?

Defend the defenseless, the fatherless and the forgotten,
The disenfranchised and the destitute.

Your duty is to deliver the poor and the powerless;
Liberate them from the grasp of the wicked.

But you continue in your darkness and ignorance
While the foundations of society are shaken to the core

Didn't I commission you as judges saying,

"You are all like gods since you judge on my behalf.
You are all like sons of The Most High, My representatives.
(See Mark 16:15-20 and Matthew 16:13-20)

Nevertheless, in death you are nothing but mere men!
You will be laid in the ground like any prince and you will die."

All arise! For God now takes His place as Judge of ALL THE EARTH!
Don't you know that everything and everyone belongs to Him?

The nations will be sifted IN HIS HANDS!



Isaiah 24
New King James Version (NKJV)

Impending Judgment on the Earth

Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste,
Distorts its surface
And scatters abroad its inhabitants.

And it shall be:
As with the people, so with the priest;
As with the servant, so with his master;
As with the maid, so with her mistress;
As with the buyer, so with the seller;
As with the lender, so with the borrower;
As with the creditor, so with the debtor.

The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered,
For the Lord has spoken this word.

The earth mourns and fades away,
The world languishes and fades away;
The haughty people of the earth languish.

The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants,
Because they have transgressed the laws,
Changed the ordinance,
Broken the everlasting covenant.

Therefore the curse has devoured the earth,
And those who dwell in it are desolate.

Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,
And few men are left.
The new wine fails, the vine languishes,
All the merry-hearted sigh.

The mirth of the tambourine ceases,
The noise of the jubilant ends,
The joy of the harp ceases.

They shall not drink wine with a song;
Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.

The city of confusion is broken down;
Every house is shut up, so that none may go in.

There is a cry for wine in the streets,
All joy is darkened,
The mirth of the land is gone.

In the city desolation is left,
And the gate is stricken with destruction.

When it shall be thus in the midst of the land among the people,
It shall be like the shaking of an olive tree,
Like the gleaning of grapes when the vintage is done.

They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing;
For the majesty of the Lord
They shall cry aloud from the sea.

Therefore glorify the Lord in the dawning light,
The name of the Lord God of Israel in the coastlands of the sea.

From the ends of the earth we have heard songs:

“Glory to the righteous!”
But I said, “I am ruined, ruined!
Woe to me!

The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously,
Indeed, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.”

Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.

And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,

And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.

The earth is violently broken,
The earth is split open,
The earth is shaken exceedingly.

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
And shall totter like a hut;
Its transgression shall be heavy upon it,
And it will fall, and not rise again.

It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord will punish on high the host of exalted ones,
And on the earth the kings of the earth.

They will be gathered together,
As prisoners are gathered in the pit,

And will be shut up in the prison;
After many days they will be punished.

Then the moon will be disgraced
And the sun ashamed;

For the Lord of hosts will reign
On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem

And before His elders, gloriously.



James 5:1-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

5 Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4 Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.[a] 5 You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as[b] in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
