|Dear USRPN Intercessors,
Just yesterday, we received an urgent prayer alert from our good friend Chuck Pierce concerning California.
Please read the prayer alert below, along with two pieces of feedback received from leaders within the USRPN. Please partner with us in fervent intercession for the state of California and the Nation.

|Massive Prayer Alert!!! 01/05//2011
Dear friends and fellow prayer warriors,
We are sending this out as a serious call to mobilize prayer. As I write this, I am praying for a spirit of wisdom and revelation to breakthrough any barrier of our hearts to receive this and act with productive clarity. As you proceed, please regard these scriptures:
o Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets."
o Job 33:14-18, "For God does speak-now one way, now another-though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings,to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword."
Yesterday, January 4th, I was called by a key intercessor in Santa Ynez. (Please note as you proceed, yesterday was the same day prop 8 was sent to the California Supreme Court) She reported two visions from separate individuals in the area:
A pastor of a large Nazarene Church had a dream of a very large earthquake on the central coast. He shared this at the Christmas gathering for all the Santa Maria Pastors and 5 cities area. Because of the destruction and intensity of the quake he thought he should tell the Pastors so they could pray into it.
Another intercessor in the area had a dream and saw a map of California. She noticed on the map how Pt. Conception juts out into the water. As she looked she saw an 8 with a circle beside it in the waters off Pt Conception.
Regarding these dreams the issue of 8 is significant:
Yesterday, January 4th, Prop 8 went to the California Supreme Court.
December 8th, 1787 was when the Mission near Point Conception was founded.
The earthquake the pastor sensed from the Lord would be 8.0 or larger. You can read more at http://www.newlifepismo.com/index.php?id=615
Key issues regarding Point Conception:
It is a point known in geographic terms as a "Triple junction." Three faults converge there. One of the faults is a large East-West fault and extends into Kern County. An earthquake along this fault would divide the state in half.
Point Conception is where the Chumash people believed the souls of their dead could pass between their mortal life and heaven and thus is significant spiritually. (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_Conception )
Prop 8 is a foundational covenant issue, i.e. issue of marriage, in the state. If the state supreme court does not uphold it, a covenant issue is broken with God. Judgment is looming. Also, of note yesterday it was announced on the radio and sent to me by another intercessor that in San Diego, there is a Korean war memorial. A judge has ruled that a cross that was dedicated in the 1950's, cannot be there, as it is, because it stands for the the government embracing "a religion". The implication was that it had to be "modified". She stated in her note to me, "the MOMENT I heard this I had a "sinking feeling" in my heart and said out loud in my car. God will not contend this any longer, judgment is coming."
Many are feeling the weight of this hour and time. There has been a very real assignment of death and destruction as many have faced health issues, even serious ones. We are at a critical "hinge point" and much will depend on our prayers and actions now. An earthquake from Point Conception would divide impact the state in three major fault lines and could potentially divide the state in half. We pray this stirs your hearts towards God's purposes. Our hope and trust is in Him.
Some Prayer points from our hearts to yours: (You will certainly have your own, but am relaying some points to stir our hearts)
Pray for all in authority, particularly our judges, (1 Timothy 2:1-3).
Action: Contact our justices. A good approach to this in contacting any official is to exhort them to uphold the "voted on" will of the people regarding prop 8. Defying such a vote annuls basic foundations of our nation. Address for the State Supreme court: 350 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102-4783.

Pray into and build the Houses of Prayer in your regions. We cannot fight this battle in our individual houses. It is an hour to CONVERGE and close the gaps on the wall.
Action: Look to see how you or your prayer group can help build the wall in your region by linking and connecting. "The work is great and extensive, and we are separated far from one another on the wall" Nehemiah 4:19.
Worship is key for the hour of trial and difficulties we will be facing: 2 Chronicles 20 (ALL of it!). "Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated" (2 Chron 20:22)
Action: Mobilize corporate worship times if you are not already doing it and as above, build into corporate worship expressions in your community. The battle requires a worshiping army!
Pray for a move of God's Spirit to ignite our hearts afresh that we may be strong in Spirit and humble in heart in the days ahead.
Word from Steven Johnson, San Diego:
"We have been travailing in prayer and must move into prevailing in prayer !!!
In order to see the birth of this next generation movement of God's Spirit.
They are being birthed even now to govern with Christ in the nation. They come with a sword and fire to counter all the counterfeit movements of satan out there. They will not bend nor yield during a time of warfare unknown in the last generations. God's Hand of Protection is upon them and they will overcome the enemy that has held sway for so long in California. They will stand where we have fallen and rebuild the ruins that have lain desolate and barren. From their bellies will flow rivers of Living Water that will change the very landscape of the State. The boundaries are being redrawn. Even territories we have long held will change with the flow and strength of this gusher of the Holy Spirit. Our prayers have paved the way and changed the atmosphere. There was an atmospheric breakthrough last year that you actually feel in the heavenlies. This is the year to win in war in the atmosphere and let the ground troops come forth arrayed in Holy Splendor of King Jesus. The rains are a sign of where this movement will break out in California. Look to see where the rain hit the hardest and flowed like never before. We must prevail in these areas that will have great influence in the coming days."
Word from Bakersfield Prayer Room, Pastor Victor Castaneda, Remnant Ministries 1/5/2010:
"And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, "Are You for us or for our adversaries?" So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?" Then the Commander of the Lord's army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so." Joshua 5:13-15
Standing with humbled heart and focus to prevail,
Committed to building a "Living Wall" of relationships,
I was alerted to the fact that fault line mentioned here runs straight through the Vandenberg Air Force Base. I felt that this AFB was there was very significant to our nation.
About Vandenberg AFB:
Vandenberg Air Force Base is headquarters for the 30th Space Wing. The 30th manages Department of Defense space and missile testing, and placing satellites into polar orbit from the West Coast, using expendable boosters.
1.1: Provide resources necessary to safely support a credible nuclear deterrent force. (emphasis added by JT)
2.1: Meet the prioritized needs of National Security Space Policy and combatant commanders.
3.1: Increase qualified human capital.
3.2: Increase participation in education and development programs.
3.3: Increase in services, better facilities, and programs for Airmen and their families.
4.1: Implement 14th Air Force Launch and Range Strategic Objectives by improving current systems and operations while transitioning new capabilities and systems.
5.1: Improve launch base integration with acquisition planning and implementation.
As a side note, this is where our middle son, Nathan & his wife, Alexandria, are stationed. He is on his first assignment for further schooling for "space & missile command" at Vandenberg before heading for Cheyenne, WY in June 2011.
Obviously, this puts this alert on a personal as well as national level for me.

As I read this urgent prayer request one of the things that stood out to me was in this part of the prophetic word:
"Another intercessor in the area had a dream and saw a map of California. She noticed on the map how Pt. Conception juts out into the water. As she looked she saw an 8 with a circle beside it in the waters off Pt Conception."
I did a Google search for Circle 8 and came upon the following (Wikipedia). I added red font color. :
The Divine Comedy (Italian: la Divina Commedia) is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature, and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church
On the surface the poem describes Dante's travels through Hell (Inferno),Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy, especially the writings of Thomas Aquinas.
The Divine Comedy is composed of 14,233 lines that are divided into three canticas (Ital. pl. cantiche) - Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso (Paradise) - each consisting of 33 cantos (Ital. pl. canti). An initial canto serves as an introduction to the poem and is generally considered to be part of the first cantica, bringing the total number of cantos to 100. The number three is prominent in the work, represented here by the length of each cantica.
(This seems significant given the part of the word that says "Key issues regarding Point Conception: It is a point known in geographic terms as a "Triple junction." Three faults converge there.")
Inferno (Italian for "Hell") is the first part of Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso. It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through what is largely the medieval concept of Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth. Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and rejection of sin.
Eighth circle (fraud)
The last two circles of Hell punish sins that involve conscious fraud or treachery. These circles can be reached only by descending a vast cliff, which Dante and Virgil do on the back of Geryon, a winged monster traditionally represented as having three heads or three conjoined bodies, but described by Dante as having three mixed natures: human, bestial, and reptile. Geryon is an image of fraud, with his face appearing to be that of an honest man, and his body beautifully coloured, but with a poisonous sting in his tail (Canto XVII).
Prophetic word: Point Conception is where the Chumash people believed the souls of their dead could pass between their mortal life and heaven and thus is significant spiritually.
The fraudulent-those guilty of deliberate, knowing evil-are located in a circle named Malebolge ("Evil Pockets"), divided into ten Bolgie, or ditches of stone, with bridges spanning the ditches:
Reference from: University of Texas at Austin(http://danteworlds.laits.utexas.edu/circle8a.html)
The offenses of circles 8 and 9--the lowest two circles of hell--all fall under the rubric of fraud, a form of malice--as Virgil explains in Inferno 11.22-7--unique to human beings and therefore more displeasing to God than sins of concupiscence and violence. While all versions of fraud involve the malicious use of reason, circles 8 and 9 are distinguished from one another according to the offender's relationship to his or her victim: those who victimize someone with whom they share a special bond of trust (relatives, political / civic comrades, guests, benefactors) are punished in the lowest circle; if there exists no bond besides the "natural" one common to all humanity, the guilty soul suffers in one of the ten concentric ditches that constitute circle 8.
Physically connected by bridges, the ditches of circle 8 contain fraudulent shades whose particular vices and actions similarly serve to interconnect the cantos and their themes in this part of the poem. Thus the pimps and seducers,whipped by horned demons in the first ditch, relate to the flatterers--disgustingly dipped in the excrement of the second ditch--through the sexualized figure of Thais, a prostitute from the classical tradition who falsely praises her "lover" (Inf. 18.127-35). These first two ditches are presented in a single canto (18). Images of degraded sexuality are even more prominent in the next canto (19). Here Dante presents simony--the abuse of power within the church--as a form of spiritual prostitution, fornication, and rape (Inf. 19.1-4; 55-7; 106-11), a perversion of the holy matrimony conventionally posited between Christ (groom) and the church (bride). Simon Magus, the man for whom simony is named (Inf. 19.1), was himself a magician or sorcerer, the profession of those punished in the fourth ditch (canto 20). Simony and Sorcery are further linked through biographical declarations--by Dante and Virgil, respectively--aimed at separating truth from falsehood: Dante sets the record straight when he announces that he shattered a marble baptismal basin to prevent someone from drowning in it (Inf. 19.19-21); and Virgil is equally emphatic that his native city, Mantua, was named after the prophetess Manto with no recourse to such dubious rituals as casting lots or interpreting signs (Inf. 20.91-3; 97-9). Political corruption (fifth ditch), the crime for which Dante himself was falsely charged when he was forced into exile, links back to similar abuses within the church (simony) and points ahead to the sin of hypocrisy. The longest single episode of the Inferno, launched when Virgil confidently believes the promise of the devils guarding the fifth ditch, concludes when the travelers make a narrow escape into the sixth ditch and Virgil learns from a hypocrite that he has been duped (Inf. 23.133-48). Dante adorns the hypocrites in religious garb--hooded cloaks similar to the elegant ones worn by the Benedictine monks at Cluny (in France)--in accordance with the biblical condemnation of false piety: just as Jesus compares hypocritical scribes and Pharisees to tombs that appear clean and beautiful on the outside while containing bones of the dead (Matthew 23:27), so the bright golden cloaks of Dante's hypocrites conceal heavy lead on the inside (Inf. 23.64-6).
Malebolge (18) - This is the name Dante gives to circle 8, which consists of ten concentric ravines or ditches: male means "evil" and bolgia is a Tuscan dialect word for "purse" or "pouch." Malebolge therefore translates to "Evil Pouches." Dante describes the overall structure of circle 8--similar to moats (with connecting bridges) around a castle--in Inferno 18.1-18,
Please know that I put no credence in Dante's Divine Comedy as divinely inspired by the King of Kings that we serve; however, some of the above noted similarities to the prophetic word do not seem coincidental and God may be allowing the hand of the enemy to be revealed through this ancient text (i.e this reminds me of Lou Engle's word regarding The Call 2007 of many "ancient books" being revealed in these last days including the one providing insight for the 7/7/07 Call "Horton Hears a Who" by Dr. Seuss)
Also note the depiction (above) of the "Malebolge" (10 concentric circles) of circle 8; could it be that the enemy is trying to release a counterfeit "wheel within a wheel" to shift not only the earth but the spiritual times.
Please prayerfully consider passing this information on to the appropriate on site intercessors.

Wikipedia on Chumash people: The ancient Chumash people of the region may have seen Point Conception as the "Western Gate," through which the souls of the dead could pass between the mortal world and the heavenly paradise of Similaqsa. The Chumash Legend "The Chumash are the guardians of this gateway, and the Humqaq is the legendary half-way house to which the soul of the deceased retreats before making the final journey on the bridge to Similaqsa, the afterworld. Chumash stories tell of the steep cliff at Humqaq,which can be reached only by a rope and which is a basin fed by fresh water.
