As you have probably realized, I’ve not said much about the Appeal To Heaven flag and message for several months. Of course, we are still appealing! I have not, however, wanted to turn this powerful and important message into a fad, or diminish its value by over-promoting it.
My staff and I have been seeking the Lord regarding what Holy Spirit would like to do with the message. And He has dropped some things into our hearts, and confirmed them with an interesting and enlightening dream given to us by a trusted friend and prophet.
“In the dream, I saw a large wind-driven ship sitting still in the ocean. Suddenly, a strong wind came and began filling the sails, starting a movement. As the sails filled, I could see that they were Appeal To Heaven flags. There were five of them. [Some of you will remember from my ATH message and book that in a dream God showed me five spiritual giants ruling America, which our prayers would overthrow.] When the sails were full I saw “2020” on the bottom of each flag, which I believe refers to the year 2020. As the ship sailed away, I saw the letters DSM on the back of it. [This, of course, referred to Dutch Sheets Ministries.]”
This dream confirms what is in my heart—we are to continue emphasizing this message and conducting Appeal To Heaven gatherings around the nation, at least through the year 2020. The work that has begun in America, including the changes in our government, is obviously not finished. Nor are we moving in the fullness of the great awakening that has begun. The Body of Christ must continue to press in with prayer until the giants are pulled down and the shift is complete. We will continue to convene ATH gatherings until then.
The next Appeal To Heaven gathering will be in Washington, DC, February 22-24, 2018. While praying about when to re-launch, my friend Cindy Jacobs gave me a very strong word. Not only was the word related to the re-launching of ATH, but also to a word Chuck Pierce gave in May. Chuck prophesied that the next 10 months would be filled with turmoil for the nation and our president. However, after these months had passed, a turnaround would occur and we would move into three years of breakthrough. While listening to me speak and pondering this word, Cindy was led by Holy Spirit to count 10 months from the time Chuck gave the word; she realized it was February 22, 2018. Knowing the prophetic significance of the number 22, as it relates to government and the opening and closing of doors (Isaiah 22:22), and also that this is one of the most significant biblical references for me, Cindy received the following word from the Lord:
“You must re-launch ATH in Washington, DC next year on February 22, and release the turnaround that Chuck prophesied for our president and the nation. This gathering will also re-launch the world-wide prayer movement. Leaders will come, intercessors will come, and prayer leaders from America and around the world will come and help us do this.”
This has resonated with all of my friends and the spiritual leaders I’ve spoken with. Lou Engle actually postponed a large Call event planned for that same date in Orlando, Florida. He will now be joining us in Washington for this gathering. Chuck Pierce will also be there. In fact, he and I have been on an assignment from the Lord to go to 22 cities in America, declaring and releasing the shift into this new season. And in God’s providence, this gathering on the 22nd, will also be our final—the 22nd!!—city of the tour.
Cindy, of course, will be there, as will other strong leaders from around the world. We will be riding the strength of 25 years of prayers for America, and WE WILL SHIFT THIS NATION!
We are working on procuring the venue, and will be releasing those details soon, but it will begin on Thursday night, February 22, and end at noon on Saturday, the 24th. Make plans to be there for this historic prayer event!
