I want to help bring a balance to the feelings and questions many people have had about the Presidential elections that took place in the U.S. this week. God is not surprised or displeased with the outcome of the elections.
God is still the God of all, still in charge and He has a plan that is going to unfold that will open some of the greatest revivals we have ever seen.
As I share this it is important to understand that God still gives you freedom to vote for whomever you wish. If you voted differently or felt you heard the Lord say that someone else would be President, it does not mean you are wrong.
Over the past year, I have been part of and overheard many counsel meetings in Heaven about the next President. For the first time in my prophetic experiences, I heard the name of the next President change on several occasions, as it was contingent on their character.
Last year I heard that Donald Trump was being called to be President, but pride was blinding his heart. In August, some other prophets and I heard that the presidency had fallen on Clinton because of Trump’s pride.
It is important to understand that God always has a plan to use anyone who takes this office. He showed me the plan for using the Clintons had Hillary been elected. Unknown to many people, during the two terms of President Bill Clinton, he sought prophetic counsel from prophets like Paul Cain. President Clinton also met every month for spiritual advice and prayer with Pastor Bill Hybels. Had Hillary Clinton been elected, God had a plan to use them to hear His voice.
During the past year, God gave me the assignment of praying for and prophesying over the Clintons and I received prophetic words and dreams for them. I am sharing this with you so you might understand why some people hear God differently than others, because we might have different assignments from the Lord.
On November 8, the morning of the elections, I was visited by a strong presence of the Lord at 5:00 AM and I received these prophetic words. I heard …
”O America, I still love you and see your zeal for Me. Satan has asked to sift you like wheat and the enemy has been waging war against you. But a remnant is going to arise to possess the land. Your sons and daughters are going to awaken from a sleep and rise up like a mighty army. They will be like David’s mighty men (and women). Yes, women! I am moving on women in this hour. I Am going to do this and it will bring about great changes that are needed for this time.
There is a shifting of power and the worldly political religious spirit is falling. From this will rise a fresh new move of My Holy Spirit that can not be contained. What I am going to do will confound the wise and not be understood through the current beliefs and thinking that many of My people have been holding to. I am going to bring the new wine of My power and presence and a new wineskin that will not look like or fit into the old.”
“However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’— the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.” 1 Corinthians 2:9–12 NIV
The apostle Paul urged us to pray for leaders. He did this during a time when the world leaders were not godly. God wants us to pray for leaders no matter what their political party or beliefs happen to be. We need to pray that God’s will be done and not our own desires.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1–4 NIV
God wants all people to be saved. This includes those who have different beliefs and political views. Be at peace and expect God our Father to bring about good things for us. This is part of getting us ready for a new worldwide revival.
My desire is to bring peace to you during a time of turmoil and uncertainty. It is important for us to respond with maturity and trust the Lord in the midst of these trying times.
The best is yet to come! Check out my prophetic word for November to get excited about the new assignments coming.
