Yesterday morning in prayer the Lord began to speak to me concerning the nation of America. He said:
“This nation is on the brink of a massive shifting. Upon the transition through a door of change, the dogs of doom have stationed themselves to try and ensure that she does not pass through the gate. They try to pronounce her doom before she can transition through into the birthing. They try to choke her out in the ring of fire, the time of intense pushing, so that she doesn’t give birth to what she was destined to birth in this season. Call on The Church to arise and sound the alarm! Call on the intercessors and the watchmen to arise, come forth, and to push back in unity with My Word, the demonic agenda of the dogs! If these ones will stand up and come forth, then they will possess the power necessary to loosen the chokehold over your nation. The sinister agenda is deeper than it appears and it will take a deep unification to tear down these principalities and to bring her into her birthing. The enemy wants to take her out and to destroy the baby she carries in her womb. Don’t let him!!! Take heed of My words and what I have shown you — and fight back with every spiritual weapon you have been given!”
As He spoke this word, I was taken into a vision:
I saw the Statue of Liberty and she was in labor preparing to deliver a child. Set before her was a door she was purposed to pass through, a door of transition. As she took steps towards the door suddenly, three dark, ugly, evil, and foul principalities appeared in front of and to the sides of the door. Each one was distinct in appearance, each with its own stench. They growled, sniveled, and shouted at her trying to hold her back. Two stood to her left and one on the right.
At first, she was intently fixed on the door and passing through it. But the closer that she got and the more intense the labor became, these principalities began to attack her. When they realized that just simply using their words against her were not enough to keep her from reaching the door, they then took up chains and thrust them upon her. The two principalities on the left thrust chains upon her neck and the third principality thrust a chain upon her wrist that bore the torch. I asked the Lord while watching this take place what these spirits were.
The first principality on the left was fear, representing itself as the cares of this world. It was dark in appearance and was more cunning than the other two. It’s focus was set upon Liberty’s mind and incessantly plagued her mind with attacks of irrational fear, worries, and doubt.
The second principality next to it was greed, or the deceitfulness of riches. This spirit and its stench was so foul that it even made me sick to my stomach. It was more hideous looking than the other two and its gaze and focus of attack was set on her heart. It sought to twist her heart and fill it with selfishness, unrighteousness, and every evil thing which separates us from God.
The third principality on the right was idolatry, or the pleasures of this life. This spirit, though unsightly, was bent on intoxicating her. It focused on her womb/stomach/well of life. It intended to root out every good thing that was within and to fill her up with that which promotes death. It sought to fill her appetite with all that would bring destruction from the inside out. The deception of this was the euphoric experience it desired to deceive her with as she found supposed fulfillment with that which she would take in.
With chains wrapped around her, she continued trying to draw near to the door though the labor pains came in waves. The principalities began yanking on the chains, choking her and causing her to lose control.
The more that she drew near to the door, the greater difficulty she had staying focused on the task at hand and reaching her goal. The spirits, their attacks and the pulling of the chains wore her down and she struggled to stand and was pulled down to a knee. She was close enough to them that their stench began to affect her. Fear swirled as a dark cloud over her head, clouding her vision. Greed released its toxic smog and as she breathed it in, it was so foul that it caused her to vomit. Idolatry breathed upon her and its scent began to intoxicate her. She started to lose control and felt as if she could not go on any longer, as if she would give way to that which ensnared her and held her captive. In one last effort, she cried out for help as these principalities drew near to her to consume her.
Suddenly, across from this taking place, I saw from behind, a person appear dressed in head to toe armor. In their right hand they yielded a shofar. I discerned that this person was a midwife. They lifted the shofar and let out one long, strong clarion call. The spirits had not seen this person appear; but the sound of the shofar caught them off guard and they began to shriek, cover their ears and double over trying to silence the sound resonating across time and space. In doing so, they dropped the chains that they had wrapped around Liberty.
After the initial sounding of the horn, I saw appear behind the midwife a row of warriors dressed and armed for battle. I discerned that these warriors were also midwives but followed the lead of the one with the ram’s horn. As the leader sounded the horn once again, the spirits shrieked once more and became disoriented. They did not see that the warriors lined up began to charge at them and draw their swords to attack them. They became more focused on defending themselves and not being destroyed that they did not notice the head midwife run towards Liberty and pick her up off of her knees to help usher her through the doorway. The midwife spoke truth and focus to her to bring her back to her senses and to her purpose at hand. The labor pains were so intense that Liberty had to stop frequently to pass through a contraction before continuing on.
I then saw as they passed through the doorway (the ring of fire), Liberty lay up on the ground and the midwife helped her birth her child. It did not take much pushing, nor did it take great effort to birth that which had been growing in her womb. The midwife handed her the child and I saw the face of the baby, so pure and beautiful, its head ablaze with fire.
I then found myself in the chair I had been praying in once again.
The Statue of Liberty in this vision represented the nation of America. For a long time the Lord has been preparing her for the birthing that is to come. There has been wave after wave of birth pains she has endured. Brought forth on a solid foundation, she has lived off of the remnants of this foundation for far too long and not been sustained upon that which can carry her through, His living promise, His living life.
It is no coincidence that in the parable of the sower, Jesus addressed the seed cast upon the thorny ground.
Matthew 13:22 TPT
“The seed sown among weeds represents the person who receives the message, but all of life’s busy distractions, his divided heart, and his ambition for wealth result in suffocating the Kingdom message and prevent him from bearing spiritual fruit.”
He was giving a warning that the seed of the Word was planted into good soil, but these three principalities—the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the pleasures of this life, rose up to choke out the life from that which sprang forth from the seed. He was exposing the three things which would ensnare, hold captive, and utterly destroy that which was created and meant to give birth to life. These are three principalities plaguing America right now.
All three of these spirits like to move in the shadows, in the unseen, mimicking that which is the opposite of them. They seek to hinder, delay, and destroy the destiny which God has appointed from before eternity.
Fear plagues and twists the mind and looses spirits of anxiety, worry, doubt and unbelief; each of which will keep us from the plans and blessing of God being released. These things oppose faith.
Greed is evil, hideous, and foul; yet cunning and deceptive. It moves in subtleties and twists and perverts the heart, turning it to stone. The deceitfulness of riches is the motivator for violence, theft, and the taking of life; for selfishness is at its core. A hardened heart cannot see, hear, nor receive the Word of the Lord; it feeds off of everything that opposes Truth.
Idolatry’s deception is that it portrays itself as innocence. It preys on the naïve, the blind, and the hungry. Man was created with a hunger and thirst for God, but the pleasures of this life often hijack those divine and even natural cravings, and begin to take over the body. It can appear in the form of many things, big and small, and releases a pheromone that intoxicates the receiver. The euphoric high that is released into the spirit and body creates a greater hunger and urge for more of that which brought a temporary artificial and superficial satisfaction.
The head midwife dressed in armor appearing with a shofar is a representation of The Church. When things are out of order and there is an attack on our land both in the spiritual and physical, it is the duty of The Church to sound the alarm. The Church is to be the watchmen on the wall. She is to release a clarion call for a gathering of intercessors, or the other midwives like in my vision. They are to assemble and fight against that which is attacking and to ensure that the birthing takes place.
A good example of this is the rebuilding of the wall in:
Nehemiah 4:14-18 AMP
“When I saw their fear, I stood and said to the nobles and officials and the rest of the people: ‘Do not be afraid of them; [confidently] remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and [with courage from Him] fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and for your homes.’ Now when our enemies heard that we knew about their plot against us, and that God had frustrated their plan, we all returned to the wall, each one to his work. From that day on, half of my servants carried on the work while the other half held the spears, shields, bows, and breastplates; and the captains were behind the whole house of Judah. Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens loaded themselves so that everyone worked with one hand and held a weapon with the other. Every builder had his sword secured at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet [to summon the troops] stood at my side.”
The baby is a picture of Revival that God wants to unleash across America. Like with birth, the door of transition is called the “ring of fire” because it’s the point mom reaches when she could easily lose focus and want to quit, the greatest point of stretching, the moment of making. Every midwife knows when mom has reached this point by these cues, and that delivery is just over the threshold. The midwife pushes with mom and fights for what is inside of her, calling out that supernatural, untold strength to march on; and does not allow her to back down and abort the promise.
America has been strung up and hung up, but NOW IS THE TIME to come together in unity and fight for what she carries. Where is the unified Church, the watchmen, who step forward to sound the alarm?! Where is the band of intercessors gathered together to wage war against enemy raiders as they simultaneously rebuild the gaps in America’s walls, repairing the breach?! Where are the midwives who will facilitate the birth of a fresh wave of Revival across America?!
Isaiah 58:12 TPT
“Your people will rebuild long-deserted ruins, building anew on foundations laid long before you. You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.”
