LABOR DAY PRAYER ALERT¯PLEASE FORWARD
Since late July, we have felt an impression from the Holy Spirit to pray for God¯s protection for our state and region over Labor Day weekend. Specifically, Jolene saw large waves hitting our shores beginning Labor Day. Behind these ever-increasing waves was a huge wave with the potential for massive devastation. More on this below.
Yesterday we learned that Hurricane Earl, now at Category 4 status, is poised to skirt the mid-Atlantic region of the US by Labor Day Weekend. ¯Hurricane Earl is on a collision course with the East Coast and Americans from the Carolinas to Cape Cod are bracing for the worst hurricane to hit the area in almost 20 years,¯ according to ABC News.
Currently, it is unclear whether the Hurricane Earl will come ashore, or merely generate large waves and dangerous rip tides. The name Earl means "nobleman warrior." We believe this hurricane is a confirmation in the natural that prophetic warnings given 4 years ago about a Labor Day season are indeed for this time.
As Hurricane Earl Approaches--Mideast Peace Talks in DC
Further, the ¯relaunch¯ of Mideast peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians begins Thursday in Washington, DC, hosted by President Obama. Thursday, according to weather forecasters, is the very day Hurricane Earl is set to affect the mid-Atlantic region.
From Hurricane Katrina to the Gulf oil spill, correlations between biblically unadvisable government actions regarding Israel and national catastrophes seem uncanny, to see the least.
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Jordanian King Abdullah, and UN envoy Tony Blair are gathering for these talks. Netanyahu and Abbas are scheduled for a private dinner Wednesday with President Obama before the meetings begin.
Please Mobilize Prayer
We are asking that each leader and intercessor who receives this ¯ramp up¯ our efforts and watch and pray intensively for the protection of our region and nation beginning now. Please consider forwarding this alert to intercessors, prayer teams and networks to mobilize prayer coverage for the protection of Washington DC, the mid-Atlantic and northeast, and your respective regions now through Labor Day weekend and beyond. We know that many of you are already involved in prayer related to the Call Sacramento. It seems that, from the east coast to the west, God is calling for a "full court press" in prayer this weekend!
We will not presume to suggest specifics of what to pray. Instead, we are asking for a corporate posture to be on alert, seek the Lord, and pray through what He is impressing upon each of you. It is imperative to pray for preparation and protection with the coming hurricane. It is also imperative to cover the Mideast peace talks¯including protection from terrorist activity, interior sabotage, detonations, etc. OK?
We are among many in the region who have had a sense to pray through Labor Day. At the beginning of August, our friend Scott Bradshaw, director of the Fredericksburg Prayer Furnace, hosted a prophetic roundtable as part of emergency preparedness training by CRI director Sean Malone. Malone, from Kansas City, felt strongly impressed to facilitate training immediately as preparation for a potential catastrophe.
At the roundtable, several prophets and prayer directors shared similar impressions about hurricanes and storm surges. One saw fires breaking out in Washington DC, another saw devastation in Richmond VA. The general consensus was that an event of major proportions could potentially threaten our region in the near future.
Key Prophetic Warnings
Beloved, you and I both know how countless tragedies, small and large in magnitude, have been averted by the intercession and obedience of God¯s prayer army. By standing on our watch, empowered by Holy Spirit, we can sometimes avert, and many times lessen, the force of coming storms. So these warnings are not set in stone. An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure!
This said, below are key warnings for this season by Cindy Jacobs and James Goll, followed by Jolene¯s warning of coming waves beginning on Labor Day.
Cindy Jacobs: Warning of Great Depression, July 17
This morning as I watched the financial news, the Lord clearly spoke these words to me, ¯The nation is teetering!¯ I then had a vision of the economy of the United States on what looked like a scale of justice. He then went on to show me that we must fast and pray and cry out to the Lord for mercy and solutions that will balance righteousness and justice.
Praying to the Lord for wisdom about this word, I then knew what must be done, it is time for the church in America to stand up and take her place once again in the nation. I mulled over the fact that we have already lost so many of our liberties and this is what I heard, ¯If the church doesn¯t fast and pray for a faster acceleration of revival and awakening, the iniquitous sin structures in the nation will tip the scale that is teetering and there will be another great depression¯¯
James Goll: Warning of Coming Storms, July 21:
In 1987, the Lord showed me part of what would take place in the year 2010 and I remember it all so well. The Holy Spirit spoke to me in the night seasons that the world would begin to unravel in 2010 and it would be a hinge in world history where things would never return to what we have considered normal. In 1987 the Holy Spirit showed me that 2010 would be the beginning of the TIME OF GREAT STORMS. It is upon us!
I believe it is the best of times and for those without faith ¯ it is the worst of times. The glory and the shaking come together. It is true on both sides of the coin. We are crossing the threshold into the Third Great Awakening and yet we are crossing the threshold into a great World Wide Shaking. This last weekend, when I ministered in the Baltimore, MD area, they had the largest recorded earthquake for that area registering at a 3.6 magnitude. The foundations of the earth are groaning in this hour! But God¯s people must arise and His Spirit must be poured out!
Jolene: Labor Day Waves
In the fall of 2006, beginning on Labor Day, Jolene had a series of dreams we both believe are pertinent for this season. She began to see masses of people by the ocean on a Monday. She was wondering why everybody was recreating instead of working, and realized it was Labor Day.
What follows here is the fourth in this series of dreams. Jon and I and our son Jonathan were on the beach with my sister on Labor Day. We were seated at a picnic table under a large pavilion on the shoreline. Since I was able to look out over the shoreline from my vantage point I could see a huge tidal wave brewing on the horizon. There were many people on the beach and boardwalks all around us.
The Wave is Coming!
The first three waves were maybe 10-12 feet high and were rolling in towards us. As they broke I began to see a huge wave that was at least 120 feet high approaching behind the smaller ones. I noticed that it was taller than the pavilion and extremely forceful in its approach and NO ONE WAS REALLY AWARE OF IT.
In the dream, Jon and my sister are attempting to do a jigsaw puzzle and are looking for the correct pieces. Seeing the massive wave, I began to ask them if it was better to try and proceed up the steps, which would put us closer to the giant wave, or to stay further away on lower ground near the picnic table. The tidal wave is fast approaching and no one is paying attention.
Phones, Plans and Purchases
The scene changes and Jon is on the phone with a ministry friend, who was on the boardwalk. They were trying to pursue a planning meeting for future events that keeps being delayed for some reason. Their conversation got interrupted by a phone call from our ministry friend¯s wife. A store owner was calling to tell her that a shirt she had purchased in several other colors is also now available in pink- would she like to place an order.
All the time I am thinking that none of this matters as we are right about to be hit by the gigantic wave.
Recover and Rebuild
In the next scene we are somehow safe under the pavilion and I think that miraculously the wave must not have hit. But as I emerge from the shelter and look outside the pavilion I see huge cranes and construction equipment rebuilding things all around us. Puddles of water are still everywhere, signifying that the tidal wave definitely hit outside the pavilion and as I look towards the sea there is a series of 4-5 man-made dams with the water flowing over them.
The pavilion was the only place where the wave did not destroy everything around us. I woke up to the song in my spirit repeating Glory, Honor, and POWER, and God was emphasizing the word POWER to me.
Shelter from the Storm
In the day of devastation, the Lord desires to hide us in the shelter of His wings. I believe this dream was a word-picture of Psalm 91 to comfort the remnant.
¯He who dwells in the secret place of the most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ¯He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust. Surely he shall deliver us¯.. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand: But is shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look and see the reward of the wicked¯¯¯
Come in from the Storm
In my dream I saw the devastation all around but it didn¯t touch us. Just like in Moses time of the plagues, the Lord¯s people lived in Goshen. Despair and tragedy were all around, but the Lord¯s people lived in great protection. As a protective Father, this is God¯s heart for us.
What¯s our part? For one, we must reject apathy and re-evaluate our priorities. In the dream, the majority of God¯s covenant people were recreating, and had no concern regarding the smaller waves then hitting our shores or the massive wave cresting on the horizon. The smaller concerns of life were choking out our discernment.
I believe the Lord is saying to everyone today, ¯Come in from the storm. Do not be distracted in this hour by the things you think are important. Put your priorities in perspective--in DIVINE PERSPECTIVE.¯
