Prophetic Word: Making Sense of the Chaos in the World

This is a call and a strategy to pray and break the spirit of violence.

80 days of preparation

God spoke to me that we’ve just entered a very important time—July 1, 2018, through September 19, 2018. September 19 is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement on the Jewish calendar, which is when God seals the verdicts He has spoken over you for the coming year.

The Lord is calling us, over the next 80 days, to complete anything He has asked us to do. We can also do anything that might prepare us for what God is calling us to. There is going to be a major shift starting in October 2018. There is no need to be legalistic, but it would be good to ask God to show you more about this.

New strategy for attacks of violence

In Isaiah 59:19, God promises that, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (NKJV).

With all that is happening in the world right now, many people are wondering, “Where do bad things come from?” and “Is God responsible for the bad in the world?” It is the enemy who has come in like a flood, but God is now releasing a new standard against him.

Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

“The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

“‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.” Mathew 13: 24–28a NIV.

The attacks we are seeing right now in the world are definitely not from God. This is the enemy and God is getting the blame.

Three attacks of the enemy

And everything I’ve taught you is so that the peace which is in me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world!” John 16:33 TPT

What I am about to share is not meant to bring fear or judgment in any way. God revealed three major attacks of the enemy that could explain why we are seeing people going crazy, killing other people and even why sicknesses are afflicting many. God also gave the solution on how we can overcome these attacks and shift the spiritual atmosphere.

The three-strand attack from Satan is: fear, lack of love (hatred) and judgments. The attacks are global and have been unfolding slowly over the past few years but are now increasing in intensity.

Attack of fear

Jesus prophesied in Luke 21:26, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (KJV).

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and, as Jesus said, it is the result of partnering with fear instead of faith. This is what is happening right now! It is important to remove fear from our lives and instead be filled with the Holy Spirit and faith, hope and love (1 Corinthians 13:13).

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 NKJV

Chronic levels of fear can allow Satan to assign people tormentors. This is why we are seeing so many people going crazy and an increase of killings and outbreaks of violence.

Attack against love

Jesus told us in Matthew 22:37–39 that the greatest commandment is to “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ … (and to) ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (NIV).

Sometimes we can get angry with God and blame Him for bad things. We can also have emotional wounds in our soul that cause us to experience self-hatred, low self-esteem or anger towards others. But when we get out of God’s perfect love, we open ourselves up to darkness, sickness and demonic attacks on our finances and faith.

Attack of judging others

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Matthew 7:1–2 NIV

After teaching the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus talks about the need to not judge others. When we judge others, we will fall under judgment ourselves. It is possible that judging others can cause us to lose our authority in prayer for changing the world. God is calling us to be careful not to speak against what we do not agree with.

The solution to changing the world

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there will be no divisions among you, but that you will be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV

To prepare ourselves for reaching the world with God’s love, it will be necessary to rid ourselves of things we might have in common with the spirits of fear, lack of love and judging others. As we do this, we will gain greater authority to minister to others and receive a clearer vision of what God is doing.

In my online workshop, Disarming Difficult Times: Passionate, Positive and Powerful Prayer, I share strategies for how to overcome this three-strand attack from the enemy and I provide you with a copy of my personal prayer outline, that I use every day. Take action to prepare yourself and your loved ones for what is coming and arm yourself with these life-changing tools and strategies today!

Blessings,

      Hey Agnes! I am agreeing with you for complete healing for Claudia, and for her friend Colleen to be filled with wisdom. God bless you all!

  2. Cindi Hall says:

    This is an amazingly insightful word! These are the very things I struggle with!

    I never saw this as literal, as being connected with heart attacks!: (Men’s hearts failing them for fear). This is also supported in Psalm 112: ‘He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is secure; he will have no fear– in the end, he will look in triumph on his foes!’

  3. Loralee Thiessen says:

    The verse quoted above ” where the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” seems to have the wrong reference attached to it. I would like to know the correct reference please. Thanks a bunch.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Loralee! The reference for the Bible verse, “where the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” is correctly sited, which is Isaiah 59:19. Bless you!

  4. Russ Hargadine says:

    Yeah we just saw 11:11 on our clock the other day.
    I-we have been fighting this stuff off-what you mentioned. It’s been tough to say the least. So yeah these prayer strategies I’m definitely going to get. Thanks Doug!

  5. Viv R Harvey says:

    This prophetic word is vital, I am certain, for unity of Believers …one Big marker in our society is the tidal wave of conflict and judgement and criticism..it is appalling.
    I appreciate this call and this strategy offered by Pastor Doug.
    Thank you!

  6. Nancy Cole says:

    Thank you, Doug for your powerful ministry..and for being sensitive to, and sharing the heart of God…

  7. Sharon says:

    Praise God for helping me to see the devices of the enemy of judging, fearing and lack of love. Thank for using your gift wisely and effectivly.

  8. Julie Levine says:

    I have heard a song on KLOVE radio that says
    Good-by to fear. I told the Spirit of fear, “You may not live in me.” I am more determined than before to not let a spirit of fear control me. Thank you for this message.

  9. Jacqui Andrade says:

    Hi Doug, i have your book “Understand Your DREAMS NOW” and bought copies for my family members. It has been very helpful so thanks. I’ve had several dreams since June 3rd and I believe the Lord is saying something major will occur between midnight of July 27th lasting through July 31st involving transition, opposition, warfare, warriors and financial mgmt transfer from the ungodly to the godly who will use the funds for the Kingdom of Heaven’s agenda. I also believe God is saying “not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit” (Zechariah 4:6-7) and that the primary weapon of war is shouted praises (Psalms 149:6-9 TPT). I sense the larger time period is July 6 – Sept 6 with the critical timeframe being July 27th beginning at midnight and lasting through July 31st. Prayer warriors must be extremely active and engaged during this timeframe.

    This is awesome stuff to meditate on and be truly changed by love to be love. It’s been my struggle as it’s not so easy to do in this world with all the negativity. Thank you!! For tools and encouragement and ways to go deeper into goodness and love ❤️

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Laurel! Yes, it is wonderful to meditate on being changed by love to love. God bless you!

  11. Arise and Shine !

    Arise and shine all you sisters and brethren,
    all of you who has been like asleep,
    for this morning you’ve all been called
    to be part of all My sheep

    Stand up all you dry bones, I will cover thee
    I will rouse that essence of life in you, call again upon Me
    Troubled soul, you are not bound to feel,
    but you are bound to arise, so kneel

    For we have offended a Holy God
    and if He is fair
    He gives all what we deserve,
    the One that even counted each hair

    Believe in God, choosing the good, refusing the evil,
    Satan’s government will fall
    Come out of them My people, resist the devil,
    can you hear the Master call ?

    The trumpets are sounding loud and clear,
    there is war, on sickness and on sin, oh fear !
    Ye nations, come to the mountain of the Lord,
    Your government is set in place, Your law is going forth

    A bow without an arrow and a string can do little harm,
    but My arrows are sharp in the heart of My enemies, sound the alarm !
    Cause you, Prince Harry, son of the devil, you will not be the one,
    I will give My Kingdom’s Reign to My Only Begotten Son !

    Let us be watchful; don’t be deceived. Look at the signs. The initials of the Invictus Games of Prince Harry are I AM. But we know Who the real I AM is, right ?
    As nations are being weighed in the scales, we need to pray for our presidents, kings and leaders. To push back the great darkness. The plots and schemes of the enemy will be revealed, as we pray diligently.
    People of the Day, don’t give in, don’t give up; ‘cause we got Love !

    My situation is in defending my beliefs in the face of those I disagree with. From now on I will use wisdom and respond in love. Thank you! 💖
