CRISIS INTERVENTION

 
  1. Calling Forth Intervention in Perilous Times
     

    1. Extreme Results are Preceded by Extreme Prayer
      There has not been a period in history that extreme prayer has not been in the forefront of the purposes of God. In fact, in every past historic revival the Lord has always empowered people to intercede in desperation for God to visit them, change them, deliver them and set free those in captivity. Desperate times take desperate measures. The question becomes: “How desperate are we?”
       

    2. The Shaking and the Glory Come Together
      Haggai 2:6-9 - This is what the Lord Almighty says: `In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the Lord Almighty. `The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the Lord Almighty. `The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the Lord Almighty. `And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the Lord Almighty.
       

    3. Four Contributing Factors to Crisis Events in the Earth
      There are four key factors in crisis events that come to the earth. They are God’s zeal to release judgment that removes what hinders love, Satan’s rage, man’s sin, and creation’s groan. These factors work together under God’s sovereignty and wisdom.
       

    4. God’s zeal and passion (energy) is to remove all that hinders love to bring forth a ready Bride. God’s role in causing a crisis is often ignored. He is actively involved in the crisis events that affect the nations. The Church is quick to talk about Satan’s role, and even sinful man’s role; yet we are hesitant and uncertain about God’s role in crisis. Sometimes He causes the crisis in a direct way. At other times, God works indirectly as He allows other forces to work.

    5. Satan’s rage is permitted by God to be expressed yet is within the boundaries that God sets. When the events of the End-Times culminate, his boundaries will be enlarged (Rev. 12:12).

    6. Man’s sin can bring death and destruction to others. Our free will gives us the ability to make real choices that affect real life. We can use this for good or for evil. If we choose evil, we have the power to express evil towards others. Man’s free will provides the legal entry point for both angels and demons to be much more active in the natural realm. When people live in rebellion, they open up legal entry points for demonic activity to be heightened in the earthly area. We affect the quality of life in time and eternity by what we do with our free will.

    7. Creation groans and travails as seen in earthquakes, violent weather patterns, etc (Rom. 8:22-23). There is a mysterious yet glorious connection between the action of the human race and the condition of the natural creation (land, vegetation, weather patterns, etc.). When Adam sinned, a curse came upon the land (Gen. 3). That curse has been escalating as man’s sin escalates. The earth’s convulsions will increase as sin is ripening in the earth (Isa. 24:5-6, 20). The whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now… (Rom. 8:22).
       

    8. Storm Warnings Are Being Released!
      Times of shaking are upon us and will come more severe as the End Times unfold. In His mercy, the Lord always first releases “warnings” giving man an opportunity to respond. God’s plumb line is being dropped in our midst. His Word and His character are His measuring line which is being dropped in the midst of the church and the nations, resulting in chiropractic adjustments to achieve His purposes. As this occurs we are seeing storms occur. As it is in the natural, it is in the spiritual.
       

    9. Storms of God’s Judgment - Our response: A Cry for Mercy requiring brokenness and tenaciousness.

    10. Storms of Dark Demonic Attack - Our response: An authoritative place of intercession, requiring faith, endurance, boldness, believing in the promises and no common ground with the enemy.

    11. Storms of Consequences of Sins - Our response: Repentance requiring humility, and lack of defensiveness.
      Each storm requires a different biblical response, but in one way each storm requires the same response - Desperation. Ultimately every storm can be used redemptively to forge character in us for the purposes of God. We must remember at all times, that all things will work together for good for those who love God and are called to His purposes.
       

    12. How to Respond to Global Crisis
       

    13. God governs (releases power to) the universe in partnership with His people through intercession.
      The majesty and mystery of intercession is seen first foremost in Jesus’ relationship with the Father.
      He (Jesus) always lives to make intercession for them. (Heb. 7:25) (The Father said to Jesus)…Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. (Ps. 2:8)
       

    14. God has already determined the primary events in His eternal plan
      (second coming of Jesus, Jesus reigning over the whole earth as King, Satan being cast into the Lake of Fire, the establishing of the New Heavens and Earth, etc.). He will surely accomplish such things regardless of what people or demons do.
       

    15. However, He has chosen to give His people a dynamic role in determining some of the measure of the “quality of life” that we experience in the natural and in the Spirit (in time and eternity). We make significant contributions in the quality of life. We determine this based on our response to the grace of God in our partnership with Him (particularly in prayer and meekness).
       

    16. The Place of Prayer is the governmental center of the universe or the way in which God chooses to release His power. Prayer is transcendent in that it is not limited by time and distance. Paul could change the Church in Ephesus by his prayers while he was far away in a prison in Rome.
       

    17. God opens doors of blessing and closes doors of oppression in response to our prayers. There are blessings that God has chosen to give, but only if His people rise up in the intimate partnership of prayer to ask for them. Jesus continues to run the world this way even after His return. You do not have because you do not ask. (Jas 4:2)
      This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. (Mt. 17:21) The LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on High to have compassion on you....19 He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you. (Isa 30:18-19)
      So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. (Ezek. 22:30)
      The LORD said to Moses, "…indeed it is a stiff-necked people! 10 Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them…" 11 Then Moses pleaded with the LORD his God, and said: "…turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people…” So the LORD relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people. (Ex. 32:9-14)
       

    18. God has given the human race great dignity.
      This is seen in us having a free will. We have been given the ability to make real choices and we can use this for good or for evil. If we choose righteousness, then we have the power to open doors of blessings on others. However, if we choose evil, we have the power to express evil towards others. Man’s free will provides the legal entry point for both angels and demons to be much more active in the natural realm. When we live in righteousness, we open up legal access for angelic activity into the natural realm. When people live in rebellion, they open up legal entry points for demonic activity to be heightened in the earthly area. We affect the quality of life in time and eternity by what we do with our free will. Some of our choices now will affect us forever. This life is not a practice game.
       

    19. Corporate intercessory worship is the primary means that God has chosen to release His government (power) in His relationship with Jesus and His redeemed.
      It is the highest expression of government in time and eternity. It is the most powerful weapon that exists. It is far stronger than the combined strength of all the nuclear weapons that exist.
       

    20. We do not earn God’s blessings by our prayers. It is God’s chosen way that enables us to more fully cooperate with Him in releasing more blessings.
       

    21. Many who love prayer in context to their communion with God do not yet have a revelation of the authority of intercession. Many worship leaders love Jesus and music, yet they do not have a revelation of the authority of corporate intercessory worship.
       

    22. God’s primary call to a nation in crisis is to gather in solemn assemblies (Joel 2:12-17).
      In other words, corporate intercessory worship and ambassadorial intercession is what we need most in this hour of history.

    23. Corporate – requires humility to embrace all that is necessary in gathering corporately. The difference of styles, doctrine, personalities, etc. makes humility necessary. In Mt. 6, Jesus warns of praying in public to make a show of our dedication. In this, the Lord was rebuking a wrong spirit while praying, not the location of our prayers.

    24. Intercessory – to stand in the gap and declare back to God Biblical prayers and promises.

    25. Worship – prophetic music and singing unifies God’s people in a unique way in providing the way in which thousands can feel the same thing for sustained periods.
       

    26. Corporate intercessory worship releases God’s judgment ( Ps. 149:6-9). Corporate intercessory worship stops destruction as when the nations of Moab and Ammon came to battle against Jerusalem under King Jehoshaphat’s leadership (2 Chr. 20).
       

    27. Some “trust” the sovereignty of God in a non-biblical way by “trusting” God to do the role that He has assigned to us.
      This is not truly trusting God, but rather it is presumption before Him. We cannot do God’s part and He will not do our part. Some misapply the truth that if God wants something then He will do it. This is true in some of the broad strokes of how He leads history. However, there are many things that God will not give us until we walk it out practically with faith and obedience. Significantly, God wants all to be saved, but it does not happen because God will not violate our free will in our salvation (2 Pet. 3:8-9).
       

    28. Old Testament Examples of Crisis Intercession
      We need the prophetic intercessory anointing of Crisis Intercession for the days in which we live. As we go through times of crisis and transition, the enemy tries to take advantage of the situation to bring mixture and confusion. Gifts of discernment and wisdom are needed to discern the difference between the enemy’s wrath and God’s righteous judgment. Prayer proceeds revelation and we then act upon or pray according to the revelation once it has been received (Rev. 8:4-5).
       

    29. Abraham’s Bartering
      Gen. 18 - Abraham bartered with God as he cried out in crisis intercession as he stood in the gap for the people of Sodom and Gormorah. Perhaps there is a principle here: When man quits God quits. (See the Study Guide called Watchmen on the Walls for more teaching on this matter.)
       

    30. Rachel’s Desperate Cry
      She was a barren women who cried out in a passionate plea of a desperate heart in a personal crisis.
      Gen. 30:1 - When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. So she said to Jacob, "Give me children, or I'll die!"
       

    31. Moses’ Intercessory Acts of Intercession

    32. Ex. 14 - As the Army of Egypt was nearly upon Israel, he cries out to the Lord and the Lord tells him to take the staff and strike the waters.

    33. Ex. 15:25 - He cried to the Lord to change the bitter waters sweet by the acting in a prophetic revelation of throwing a branch into the water. (Jer. 23:5, Isa. 11:1)

    34. Ex. 17 - Aaron and Hur stand with Moses as intercessory helpers for God to intervene against the Amalekites.

    35. Ex. 32:11-14 - Moses entreats and seeks the favor of God over the possible pending destruction of Israel. Man’s sacrifice releases God;s power.

    36. Deut. 9:18-19 - Moses fasted and prayed 40 days for the Lord to hear his cry and relent concerning His wrath against Israel.

    37. Num. 16:41-50 - Moses said to Aaron to take a censor with fire from the altar and make an atonement before the congregation to see the plague stopped. vs. 48 - And he took his stand between the dead and the living, so that the plague were checked.
       

    38. Gideon’s 300 Men
      The power of the Midian prevailed in Israel oppressing the inhabitants. The sons of Israel cried out to the Lord and God raised up deliverers - Gideon and his 300 men. They were those who knelt on one knee. God is calling for those who will be worshipful watchers, alert to the purposes of God. A key: Worship proceeds petitioning.
      Judg. 6:12-13 - When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, "The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." "But sir," Gideon replied, "if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our fathers told us about when they said, `Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?' But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian." The Lord turned to him and said, "Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian's hand. Am I not sending you?"
       

    39. Hannah’s Cry For a Son
      Hannah’s womb had been closed and in her bitterness of weeping caused by the provoking and irritation of Peninnah, she cried out in desperation for God to arise and come to her aid and give her a child.
      1 Sam. 1:10, 15, 19-20 - And she, greatly distressed, prayed to the Lord and wept bitterly... I am a women oppressed (deeply troubled) in spirit... but I have poured out my soul to the Lord... the Lord remembered her...and it came about in due season that after Hannah had conceived, that she gave birth to a son and she named him Samuel, saying ‘Because I have asked him of the Lord’.
       

    40. David’s Victory Over Goliath
       

    41. I Sam. 17:39-40 - David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. "I cannot go in these," he said to Saul, "because I am not used to them." So he took them off. Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine.

    42. David’s prophetic act of intercession was to walk in his own armor.

    43. As the taunts of the enemy came, David takes five smooth stones to assault the Philistine Goliath.
       

    44. Elijah’s Travail
      1 Kings. 18:4-46 tells us of Elijah’s intercession on Mt. Carmel as he travailed for rain in the midst of famine. After three years of drought, Elijah’s travail opens the heavens.
      (Read my book “The Prophetic Intercessor” for a fuller understanding of this passage.)
       

    45. Elisha’s Prophetic Actions
      (To learn about this subject, refer to the lesson on Prophetic Gestures and Actions in the Study Guide on Understanding Supernatural Encounters.) 
       

    46. II Kings. 4: 8-37 - Elisha lays on the Shunammite boy and life comes back to him. Oh that a leadership would arise with the resurrection power of the Lord and breathe on the dead sickened body called the church and would breathe the breath into the mouth of the church.

    47. II Kings. 4: 38-41 - Elisha cries out tot he Lord and the Lord gave revelation to throw meal into the pot of poisonous stew so that no harm fell upon them. Pray that again the Spirit of faith would arise in crisis intercession and multiplication would take place.

    48. II Kings. 6:17 - And Elisha prayed and said, "O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see." And the Lord opened the servant's eyes, and he saw, and behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

    49. II Kings. 13:14-19 - Elisha prophesies over Josiah the King to take an arrow and to open the window and shoot the arrow, for it would be the Lord’s arrow of victory over Syria.
       

    50. Nehemiah’s Burden For Restoration
       

    51. Nehemiah was the Kings cup-bearer. In one sense we are all to be cup bearers to the King offering ourselves to Him in service. Nehemiah carried a desperate plea of forgiveness over the sins of his people and a prophetic burden for the re-establishing of Jerusalem. May we also be consumed with such a burden to see the Lord’s kingdom established.

    52. Neh.1:6-7 - Let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father's house, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.

    53. Neh. 2:4-5 - The king said to me, "What is it you want?" Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king, "If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my fathers are buried so that I can rebuild it."
       

    54. Esther’s Divine Appointment
      Esther was one who was raised up in a time of natural crisis that could have resulted in the genocide of the entire Jewish people
      Est. 4:14 - For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?
       

    55. Isaiah’s Persistent Petitioning
      True authentic revival comes forth when God’s people let their inner beings be filled with that which is in God’s heart and the pain, suffering, agony and oppression of a people grips their inner being and they cry out as a women in travail.
       

    56. Isa. 41:21-22 - Present your case. the Lord says, bring forward your strong arguments... let them bring forth and declare to us what is going to take place.

    57. Isa. 42:14 - I have kept silent for a long time, I have kept still and restrained myself, now like a woman in labor I will groan, I will gasp and pant.

    58. Extreme results are preceded by extreme prayer.

    59. Isa. 62: 1-2 - For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem's sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.

    60. Isa. 62: 6-7 - I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.

    61. Living in the “Until Clauses.” The time from which revelation is given to the time it is fulfilled.
       

    62. Jeremiah’s Compassionate Pleas
      Jer. 22:16 - He plead the case of the afflicted and needy, then it was well. Is not that what it means to know Me?
      Crying out to God for intervention is an opportunity or doorway into knowing God: knowing His mercy; getting close to His heart; feeling His burdens; carrying his burning desires for justice.
       

    63. Daniel’s Model of Character and Authority

    64. According to Daniel 2:18 at the prospect of death,Daniel pleads for mercy from the Lord concerning the mysterious dream of Nebuchadnezzar’s, so he and his friends might not be executed.

    65. Daniel kneels in prayer three times a day looking out his window towards Jerusalem while in captivity.
      Dan. 6:10 - Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.

    66. As stated in Daniel 9:1-27, Daniel sought the Lord for the fulfillment of God’s prophetic promise given by Jeremiah by removing the blockages through the confession of sin through indentificational repentance.
       

    67. Joel’s Trumpet Sound
      Joel 1:13-14 - Put on sackcloth, O priests, and mourn; wail, you who minister before the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you who minister before my God; for the grain offerings and drink offerings are withheld from the house of your God. Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.
      Joel’s call echoed in his day and the reverberations of his trumpet blast are still being experienced in our time. The call to pray, fast, weep and travail have been used in the past and will be used again to change times of desolation into restoration through holy consecration.
       

    68. Amos - Holding Off Judgment

    69. Amos receives five visionary revelations. These are perhaps the premiere or classic examples of prophetic intercession for crisis intervention. Where there was the judgment of God pronounced, Amos set himself interceding until the Lord relented and his hand of judgment was lifted.

    70. Amos 7:1-9 - This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me: He was preparing swarms of locusts after the king's share had been harvested and just as the second crop was coming up. When they had stripped the land clean, I cried out, "Sovereign Lord, forgive! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" So the Lord relented. (Changed his mind - NASB) "This will not happen," the Lord said. This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me: The Sovereign Lord was calling for judgment by fire; it dried up the great deep and devoured the land. Then I cried out, "Sovereign Lord, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" So the Lord relented. "This will not happen either," the Sovereign Lord said. This is what he showed me: The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in his hand. And the Lord asked me, "What do you see, Amos?" "A plumb line," I replied. Then the Lord said, "Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer. "The high places of Isaac will be destroyed and the sanctuaries of Israel will be ruined; with my sword I will rise against the house of Jeroboam.

    71. Like Amos we need to be those who will hold off wars, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and natural calamities by calling forth for the mercy of God to be released.

    72. We must also realize that the judgment of God can be His mercy, but we need discernment in these matters to cooperate with Him.

    73. NEW TESTAMENT EXAMPLES OF CRISIS INTERCESSION
      Jesus Christ Our Lord

    74. As recorded in Matt. 8:23-27 a furious storm came upon the lake, so Jesus arose and rebukes the storm. The disciples are astonished saying: “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”

    75. John 11:41 exclaims, “And so they removed the stone, And Jesus raised his eyes and said, Father, I thank thee that you heardest Me.”
      This is the declaration Jesus gave before He called Lazarus out of the tomb. Verse 33 tells us, “When Jesus therefore saw her (Mary) weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit, and was troubled.” This condition of being deeply moved within was a form of compassionate crisis intercession that resulted in Lazarus’ resurrection.
       

    76. The Church’s Fervent Intercession

    77. Acts 4:29-31 records the time when the early church came under threats and persecution. As the church fervently prayed, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness and the place where they were gathering was shaken.

    78. Acts 12:2-17 describes the intense intercession from the church that resulted in an angel being released from heaven to Peter’s jail cell and his ultimate release. Great amazement resulted (vs. 16).
       

    79. Paul's Cries For Help!

    80. Acts 16:22-33 tells the awesome event when Paul and Silas were put into prison and how they prayed and praised the Lord (vs. 25). Suddenly, an earthquake came and they were miraculously set free. This result ended in the conversion of the jailer and salvation visited his entire household (vs. 33).

    81. Ephesians 6:18-20 recalls Paul’s request for prayers to be lifted up on his behalf that he would proclaim with boldness the gospel while he was in chains in prison.
       

    82. CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLES OF CRISIS INTERCESSION
       

    83. Reese Howells
      During World War II this passionate man, possessed of God sought His heart for the Nazi’s strategies to be exposed and for deliverance to come to Britain. Often during this period of time they would know the enemies plans before they would happen and then pray until they received the breakthrough. One such example of crisis intervention was in the summer of 1938, when the dispute arose with Hilter over Czechoslovakia, resulting in what became known as the Munich crisis. We now know that the voice Hitler followed, which coincided with the advice of some of his trusted advisors, was urging him to attack while Britain was still totally unprepared. War seemed inescapable, and the leaders of the nation called for a day of prayer. God made the challenge very real to the College, and for days the conflict was bitter. It was essentially a clash of spiritual forces - a test of strength between the devil in Hitler and the Holy Ghost in His army of intercessors. At the height of the battle the one prayer that the Holy Ghost gave to the College through His servant was, ‘Lord, bend Hitler.” A point came when that cry of travail changed into a shout of victory. The devil had to give way. It was just before the commencement of the new session in the College, and the victory was so certain that Mr. Howells turned the opening day into a day of praise. An announcement appeared in the South Wales Evening Post on Saturday, September 17, stating that ‘The Meetings (of the following Thursday) will take the form of Praise and Thanksgiving because God has again averted a European War. Hundreds gathered in the Conference Hall in that dark hour to join in praising God. In the days that followed the test ran higher and higher, but faith was steadfast, and on Thursday September 29th, the College and School were given a general holiday, to celebrate the coming victory. The next day, September 30, the Munich Pact was signed. War had been averted.

      It was certainly this victory, and the knowledge that the Holy Ghost was stronger than the devil in Hitler, that enabled the College to take the assurance a year later, when war did come, that was not the triumph of Satan, but it was ‘God’s war on the Beast’.
       

    84. John (Praying) Hyde - Pioneer of Prayer in Northern India
      Think of Praying Hyde. He often went into the hills to visit friends and pray. A friend relates, “It was evident to all he was bowed down with sore travail of soul. He missed many meals and when I went to his room, I would find him lying as in great agony, or walking up and down as if an inward fire were burning in his bones.” It was from intense burden that Hyde asked God to give him a soul a day that year. Praying Hyde departed from his friends no ordinary man. He became a burden-bearer for mankind. At year’s end, four hundred souls had been won to Christ!
      As the new year came, John Hyde approached God’s throne with a greater burden. Now Hyde begged for two souls daily. Twelve months later, more had been won than Hyde anticipated. In fact, some eight hundred souls were claimed that year. This, however, did not satisfy Praying Hyde. Soon we hear him pleading, “Give me four souls every day.” Hyde’s intent was not to win these with tent crusades or massive rallies. He went for every soul, one at a time. It is said that Hyde approached sinners on the street of any village at any time. Conversation ensued and before long, both would kneel in prayer. Multitudes of souls found Christ when this humble man assumed a burden for the lost.
       

    85. Corrie Ten Boom’s Heart for the Jewish People
      As recorded in the famous book - The Hiding Place - the Lord gave a fearless helping heart to the Ten Boom family for the Jewish family in the time of the WWII. They prayed for and hid the persecuted Jewish people during this evil hour. Corrie’s life is full of dramatic testimonies of God’s preservation in result of crisis intercession.
       

    86. Mahesh Chavda’s Watch of the Lord
      Healing evangelist Mahesh Chavda has sought the Lord for years through numerous 40 day fasts. In recent years along with his wife Bonnie they have called for the restoration of the Lord’s Watch by praying all night every Friday night with over 600 groups world-wide joining them. As a result, they have seen thousands of healings and miracles take place along with dramatic intervention in families’ lives and world affairs. (Read the book - Watch of the Lord by Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda for more on this subject.)
       

    87. Tom Hess’s House of Prayer for All Nations
      Another friend, Tom Hess, has led intense times of fasting in Washington, D.C. in the past which would result in intervention in Supreme Court decisions each time. In recent years he leads the House of Prayer for All Nations on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel as well as having led ten prayer excursions into Russia interceding for the release of the Jewish people from the biblical ‘land of the North’. (Read the book - The Watchmen by Tom Hess for details on this subject.)
       

    88. Personal Experience
      While in Prague a dream was given in which three arrows were released and the third arrow would be release that would strike the mark of which would put an end to the war in Sarajavo (then Yugoslovkia). After three days of corporate repentance three men got up and prayed over this war. When I got up as the third person the Spirit of God come upon me and I released a prophetic word. That night snow come in the hills around Sarajevo causing the emanate attack to cease. (For more on this subject read the book The Prophetic Intercessor.)
       

    89. Closing Exhortation
      God wants to anoint His watchmen today with the grace and authority of crisis intercession. May many more like Rees Howells who stood in the gap for Britain during WWII against the invasion of the Germans or Evan Roberts the Welshman who cried out “Bend the Church and change the Worlds” and saw 100,000 souls pour into the kingdom in six months be raised up in this hour.
      God is looking for a humble, contrite people who know the times in which they live and what the Lord requires of His people in that hour. We must learn now the principles of intercession, confession and repentance. We must equally learn to cultivate an authentic Spirit of faith mingled with the Spirit of revelation from the heart of the Father, and then get in the face of the enemy and say this far and no more!
      “Here we are Lord! Use us! Let crisis intervention through intercession arise for such a time as this! Teach us to stand in the gap for your Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven. Capture us Lord for your holy purposes in Jesus Name! Amen and Amen!”
