As a prophetic intercessor, I am often on “high alert” around the end of October because I am aware of the defilement to neighborhoods, cities, and regions coming from those who practice works of darkness. I usually see “street sweepers” come through the morning after October 31st, cleaning up all of the garbage and clutter in the spiritual atmosphere that results from the sacrifices to demons and curses uttered the night before. These “street sweepers” are holy angels and holy people working in tandem to declare the Father’s will and advance the kingdom. It sometimes takes time to break through, depending on the level of prayer and unity in the Body. However, this year, I saw something totally different.
The street sweepers are coming tonight. The angels of God are coming to release the power of Holiness and the pure white light which flows from the face of Jesus Christ. They are coming in response to faithful intercession and there will be many conversions of satanists, witch covens, and even those trapped in “harmless” New Age practices, beginning throughout this weekend. This may sound like an unbelievable promise, but it is similar to what has happened in the Muslim world, as Jesus has appeared to thousands of Muslims in dreams and encounters, leading to fully redeemed and transformed lives. Just He has often appeared in the Muslim world in response to intercession, the living Christ is now going to show up in the darkest places and times in our nation in response to the continual worship, intercession, and declaration of His people.
It is true that we must do our job to evangelize others and spread the gospel (see Acts 1:8). However, we must also remember that Jesus Christ himself appeared to Saul in a pure bright white light. Jesus personally dealt with Saul because He took Saul’s persecution of Christians as an attack on Himself. This is why He said, “Saul, why do you persecute me?!” (See Acts 9:1-18 for the full story) Likewise, many believers have been oppressed or struggled for many years from the witchcraft and curses spoken against them. The Lord has taken these years of attacks personally and He is now going to deal with them personally.
Even some of the “highest level” satanists and witches are going to supernatually and sovereignly encounter the light, life, and love that flows from Christ. As a result, many will have their hand restrained just before the moment of sacrifice. Others will be left on the ground weeping, as Jesus sovereignly delivers them from all of the years of abuse, pain, and hardship that has led them down a darker path. Just as Saul was struck blind, many of those who have practiced demonic arts such as astral projection, remote viewing, and other dark practices will find themselves “spiritually blind” and unable to perform these tasks, for Jesus Himself will blind them to what they once saw and did.
This is not a “one time event,” but the inauguration of a special time of harvest for those who have been lost to darkness. The breakthrough that is beginning tonight will continue through all of 2017 and we will see “waves of Harvest” coming from the darkest places. The Lord specifically revealed this to me as a year to “tear down the high places” with the power of holiness and the light of Jesus Christ, so I expect Him to reveal new strategies for reaching groups we usually dismiss as “too lost” to bother with. (see Numbers 33:52) A good example is the attack at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida this year. The devil orchestrated this terrorist attack because he smells what is coming and is terrified by the harvest about to unfold from the gay community. This attack revealed that the Father has also inaugurated a time of harvest from those bound to the devil through sexual defilement. If we pray, God will expand and increase the harvest, giving us unprecedented strategy to “tear down the high places” throughout the next year.
A few are called to partner with the Lord in intercession and prophetic declaration concerning this word. However, let’s let the Enochs and Elijahs handle the mountain-top encounters (see 1 Kings 18 and Enoch 13-14, an extra-biblical text confirming the truths of canon scripture). The best way for us to be prepared for the coming Harvest is simply to obey the Lord’s instructions in the small and simple areas of life. Live holy. Forgive quickly. Love deeply from the heart. Draw close to Him. Read the Word and pray daily. God will “show Himself faithful to those who are faithful.” (Psalm 18:25) Psalm 18 is also an excellent psalm to pray and declare in response to this word.
