The nation is in turmoil and the body of Christ is divided as the ongoing electoral process continues. Evidence of fraud and deception continues to mount, and a holy remnant is calling for righteousness and justice to be the foundation of God’s throne. In addition to the litigation and rallies taking place across the nation, calling for integrity and honesty in our elections, the Church has another spiritual weapon in our arsenal that can help override the enemy’s schemes.
The Lord has been highlighting to numerous prophetic voices and intercessors the power of communion and Jesus’ shed blood. Dutch Sheets recently shared a dream from an intercessor that included President Trump holding an appeal to heaven flag, a Bible, and communion elements. The Lord reminded me of a dream I had in 2017 that foreshadowed a time when the body of Christ would be summoned into the Mountain of the Lord to take communion together. Numerous prayer initiatives across the country are including daily communion as their practice, and several nationally recognized prophets I have spoken with believe this is a key to our corporate breakthrough. The power of this sacrament is not only symbolic; it has spiritual power in the heavenlies.
And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. (Rev 12:10-11 ESV)
Immediately following Jesus’ crucifixion, the disciples were discouraged and doubting the prophetic words spoken about their Messiah. They thought they knew His plans but were blinded to His bigger purposes. It wasn’t until He broke bread with them that their eyes were opened.
When He was at table with them, He took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him. (Lk 24:30-31)
Celebrating the power of Jesus’ blood sharpens our focus and reminds us of His ultimate victory over every scheme of hell. It not only serves notice to principalities and powers seizing illegal entry; it unites true believers under the banner of the cross. Wicked forces have seized demonic power through the bloodshed of innocents on this land and it has become a hidden fuel line for their treachery and deceit. Not only has it brought a curse on this land, it has put many to sleep (see 1 Corinthians 11:28-31). In taking communion, we can render the enemy’s power grid useless and cripple their assault over our nation.
I am partnering with Intercessors for America, and we are calling for believers across the nation to CELEBRATE COMMUNION THIS COMING SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15 as a declaration of Jesus’ victory over the enemy. This demonstration of our unity in Christ will strengthen our corporate resolve and bear weight in the courts of heaven.
