3 Days of Prophetic Declaration for Healing the Land, Restraining Evil and Releasing the Promise

By |June 29th, 2020|

For the days in which we live, we need to kneel before the Lord our maker in worship and unite in agreeing prayer and the power of declaration in Jesus’ name.

With this is mind, I have brought together some of the most established leaders in the global prayer and prophetic movement to bring us “7 Days of Declaration” after the model used by the prophet Daniel in which he prayed three times each day: morning, noon and evening. Though this article will only feature three days’ worth of declaration, you can find a full week of prayers on my website.

Will Ford III is a minister and author passionate about cultural transformation. He travels throughout the U.S. and other nations speaking on intercession, reconciliation, awakening and reformation. Will brings a wealth of experience both in the marketplace and the church world, and he is able to build bridges to carry the purposes of God in this generation. My friend, Will Ford III, brings us declarations for healing the land.

James Goll: Why God Is Always Good—No Matter What

By |June 22nd, 2020|

I had what you might call a divine appointment.

One morning, the Holy Spirit interrupted my thinking with the strong sense that I should leave the house and drive over to a local commercial establishment called The Factory, where I would meet somebody.

I was reluctant to stir myself; I was feeling kind of down, and it seemed as if it might be a waste of time. But the Holy Spirit was persistent, so I went out the door just the same because I have learned that these things often prove to be from God.

The Factory is a handful of upscale shops, places to eat and other enterprises housed in a collection of refurbished warehouses.

I decided to head to a café I knew, where I could order something and just sit a while. So, I got my organic, freshly made juice and a little bowl filled with nuts and fruits, and I sat down with it.

Another customer came in, and he stopped and looked at me. “Are you, like, could you maybe be James Goll?”

I did my Clark Kent routine because you never know who you might be talking to: “Well, sometimes.”

He asked if we could sit down together. Turns out he was an old friend.

Prophet: How You Can Intimately Connect With Holy Spirit Every Day

By |June 15th, 2020|

Oh, how I love the Holy Spirit! He makes Jesus real. He makes the Father enjoyable.

I roll out the red carpet to this precious dove of God every day. I say, “Holy Spirit, You are welcome here!” In these days, we want to welcome the baptism of the holy and fire. Send Your fire, Lord!

The Holy Spirit is the one who connects us to heaven. Without Him, not even Jesus could have known what the Father wanted Him to say or to do. (See, for example, John 5:19.) If you want to know God, you absolutely must get to know the Holy Spirit, who works tirelessly to connect heaven and earth.

We are living in crazy and uncertain times. Perilous. Unpredictable. Fearful.

By |June 8th, 2020|

Everything that can be shaken is being shaken.

The bigger the storm, the bigger the anchor that is needed to keep the ship secure.

Hope is the anchor that holds in the midst of any situation, trial or storm—no matter how severe it gets.

“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope” (Jer. 29:11, NASB).

I am personally convinced that all of the hills and valleys I have passed through in the last 14 years of my life have prepared me for the uncertainty of where we find ourselves today.

Knowing that God causes all things to work together for good, I believe some of the wisdom lessons that have been hammered into me will be helpful for you as you travel on this unfamiliar road.

Prophet: Has Hardship Struck Your House?

By |June 1st, 2020|

Has hardship ever struck your house?

“The Long and Winding Road” was a popular hit song years ago. I loved the haunting melody, but as a disciple in Jesus, I was sure that my path would be smooth and easy.

Was I ever wrong! My life has not circled a cul-de-sac, but it seems to have steered off the primary highway and onto a trail leading to who knows where.

It was a road I was unfamiliar with and one that I was not expecting. Twelve or more years were filled with winding roads and an unfair share of trauma along the way.

My heart became dead. Well, at least part of it.

As a result, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons as I went on an intentional journey to discover what it would take to revive my own heart and soul.

I did not pick this subject. I would never have picked it. If it had been up to me, I would have run a hundred miles in the opposite direction.

But in the providence of God, I think this topic has chosen me.

Prophetic Perspective: Welcome to the Era of Favor

By |May 26th, 2020|

The questions I am frequently receiving in this season have prompted me to provide prophetic perspective on the new era I believe we have entered.

These questions sound something like this: “What comes next?” “Where do we go from here?” “What does this 50-day divine reset require of me?” “Can we just go back to what we knew?”

Change is upon us—no matter what! We are in the midst of one greatest defining moments in recent global history.

WWII left a global impact with the realigning of nations and the birth of the nation of Israel.

The terror attacks by a few radicals on 9/11 resulted in the world reeling. Life never went back to its former ways.

Prophet: The Need of the Hour Is for Insight

By |May 18th, 2020|

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” (Dan. 12:3, NASB).

These words from the prophet Daniel have been illuminated to me in a fresh way this year: they are my new life verse and demonstrate what I am called to release in this hour. The need of the hour is for insight!

Let us consider some of the promises for those who walk in this dimension. In the backdrop of dark night, those who have insight will shine brightly … like the stars.” The people with insight will cause people to look towards heaven. These shining ones will lead many to righteousness. We need people with true insight to arise in this global hour of chaos and confusion.

I refer to these Spirit-filled believers in the Lord Jesus Christ as “hope ambassadors” or “hope solutionists.” The time is now for those with insight to arise and be a guiding light.

James Goll: Why Should I Be a Watchman for Israel?

By |May 11th, 2020|

As followers of Jesus Christ, we serve as watchmen for the people of God, whoever they may be—even the ones who do not yet identify themselves as the people of God. God asks volunteer watchmen like you and me to shoulder a burden for the Jewish people and for all of the descendants of Abraham.

God’s plan is to bring Jews alongside Gentiles (non-Jews) into full saving knowledge of Christ. He wants to win over Jews, Arabs, Chaldeans and all residents of the Middle East to His Son. The day will come—and we have a key part in hastening it—when “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the seas” (Hab. 2:14).

Prophet: You Are Called to Confront Anti-Semitism

By |May 4th, 2020|

Author’s Note: We will relive the book of Esther. The Gentiles will carry the Jewish people upon our shoulders.

We will right the wrongs of the past when the church did not stand up for the Jewish people—as in the days of the Russian pogroms and the time of the holocaust in WWII.

In the book of Esther, Haman had a plan of genocide of the entire Jewish race. But aided by the prayers and fasting of Queen Esther’s Court and Mordecai’s coaching, Haman was hung on his own gallows.

Haman is long gone, but that ancient malevolent spirit is attempting a comeback in our day.

It is as if someone has pushed a “replay” button, except for one thing: Where is Mordecai? Where is Esther? Where are the God-inspired strategies that can pull down the spirit of Haman or the anti-Semitic demonic powers?

With this in mind, below I want to share an article by my friend and son-in-the faith, Patrick Penn, of Huntsville, Alabama, who provides a startling update on today’s activity.

James Goll: How Simple Prayers Can Get Big Results

By |April 27th, 2020|

A question I am often asked goes something like this: “Why does God need our prayers anyway?”

Have you ever wondered why God seems so intent on having us pray for every single thing? Is He not sovereign and merciful and willing to take care of everything, whether or not his people ask Him each time?

Come to Papa Like a Trusting Child

Let’s develop this a little bit. In His goodness, He wants you to come closer to Him

. The most straightforward way to do that is through our simple, confident praying. Like trusting children, we come to Papa. He supplies what we need in exactly the right measure. When we point to some other person’s need and say, “Papa, look over there. Would You help him/her/them, too?” He is quick to respond. Why? This is more than just a Q & A session. Prayer is an invitation straight from Papa God’s heart to ours to come into a greater intimacy with Him.

Prophet: We’re in a 50-Day Divine Reset From Passover Into Pentecost

By |April 20th, 2020|

We have entered into a 50-day divine reset from Passover into Pentecost.

In this strategic time in history, God is pushing the reset button.

Passing through this crucial period will require some intense chiropractic adjustments, including recalibration. Whatever is out of alignment will be challenged.

There will be a lot of pulling and stretching as we eventually move into a recovery phase and ultimately, if the Lord is willing, into one of the greatest times in recent history called the “Restoration of All Things” (see Acts 3:19-21).

These are extreme times. If we are not careful and prayerful, we could enter into a new war between the states where the West Coast wants one set of guidelines and the North East sector another. The Deep South, with its religious roots, could cry “foul” and demand that we take another look at the Bill of Rights.

It is vital that we seize the moment during this 50-day divine reset!

But through the lens of redemptive interpretation, let me share with you a few of the God Encounters I have recently received.

As It Was in the Days of Noah

In a vivid dream, I was given a scroll that became a blueprint on how to build an ark that would last throughout the storm. I appeared as Noah in the dream, leading my family in the construction of an ark of preservation.

Prophet: Have You Experienced These God-Inspired Dreams?

By |April 13th, 2020|

Dreams are as diverse as the languages we speak, the clothing we wear and the food we eat. Dreams are a communications expression of the creative heart of God. As the Master artistically paints each flower of the field, so dreams are individually tailor-made for you and me.

What are dreams made of? Are they spiritual gifts given for us to unwrap? Revelatory dreams naturally fall under the spiritual gift of prophecy. Yet they are too broad to be confined neatly and strictly just to one gift. Dreams may also be an impartation of the gift of discerning of spirits.

Like the colors in a rainbow in overlapping shades, difficult to tell where one stops and another begins, dreams are definitely unique and creative expressions of spiritual gifts. There are no clear lines of demarcation between spiritual gifts. The word of wisdom blends into a word of knowledge. The gift of faith overlaps with the workings of miracles. Yes, dreams are spiritual gifts that intertwine with various enchanting shades.

Dreams are not a dead language but a dynamic, living language full of life. As Creator, God is incredibly diverse.

Prophet: The Church Desperately Needs Heavenly Insight in This Hour

By |April 6th, 2020|

There is a vacancy that needs to be filled on the earth. Could it be that in the “Help Wanted” section of God’s news department, the Holy Spirit is listing a posting that says, “Needed: Heavenly Insight for the Hour”?

God is looking for Spirit-filled believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to rise up as hope ambassadors or hope solutionists. It is time for those with heavenly insight to arise and be guiding lights within the nations of the earth.

“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” (Dan. 12:3, NASB).

This verse from the prophet Daniel has been illuminated to me since the beginning of the year (2020). I believe the need of the hour is for insight!

This guide is intended to be only an outline, surrendered to the leading of the Holy Spirit as a flexible tool to help you in your hour of worship and intercession.

It is not a formula, and you do not have to follow it to the letter. Your times of prayer may vary greatly from one week to the next, as the Spirit leads you. Below, you will find a brief outline, followed by further explanation.

How You Can Be Ready When the Enemy Fights Dirty

By |March 23rd, 2020|

You have to run over the devil before he runs over you. You are standing on a battlefield (perhaps a different one than you were last year at this time).

You may be standing in the middle of an army or you may be standing all alone. Are you just going to stand there, waiting to see what will happen? Or are you going to do something that will allow you to get and keep the upper hand?

King David gave us a psalm that we should graft onto ourselves so that we can be true overcomers: “I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not return until they were destroyed” (Ps. 18:37).

Earlier in the same psalm, he expressed his utter dependency on God when his enemies proved to be too strong for him: “He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support” (Ps. 18:17-18).

He was a true overcomer—determined to make an end of his enemies, but always aware that he needed help doing it.

James Goll: Your Top Weapon Against Satan’s Sneaky Deception

By |March 16th, 2020|

Satan’s No. 1 weapon is deception. Your No. 1 need is discernment!

“To be forewarned is to be forearmed.” That is why you need discernment in this hour.

That old saying captures a scriptural truth: Discernment forewarns us so that we do not fall prey to subtle deceptions.

Forewarning gives us courage, too, as we find out what we are dealing with and what to do.

“The Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Tim. 4:1, NASB).

Prophet: God Has a Solution for Every Storm

By |March 9th, 2020|

Holy Spirit is offering “storm warnings” for those who have ears to hear. God’s challenge in life’s storms is being sounded. As we press into Him, He is pressing into us.

He wants to increase our capacity to detect His early warning signals.

Too often we are only after-the-fact intercessors instead of forerunner discerners who can cut off, lessen or delay attacks of the enemy.

Many of us have a history of being crisis intercessors, who take a stand between the living and the dead. We need to become better prophetic intercessors, who detect ahead of time the plots and schemes of the evil one.

On a global basis, we are facing the coronavirus, which shows no signs of respecting borders of nations. It has leapfrogged from China to parts of Europe, the Middle East and North America.

Prophet: The Highest Weapon of Spiritual Warfare

By |March 2nd, 2020|

Prayer—in all its forms—has played a key role in my life and ministry for years. I want to see the works of the devil destroyed with the least amount of backlash.

So, I have pondered deeply on various understandings and perspectives concerning spiritual warfare and how to deal with territorial spirits. I’ve met with different revival leaders around the world to increase my understanding on issues dealing with principalities, powers and spirits of wickedness in the heavenly places (Eph. 6:12).

A gigantic breakthrough came to me one day when the penetrating voice of the Holy Spirit spoke, resolving the whole dilemma, I’m going to teach you to release the highest weapon of spiritual warfare.”

Stunned, I marveled at the thought, “the highest weapon.” That one statement made my spiritual antennas go way out!

James Goll: This Is a Time of Generational Prophetic Inheritance

By |February 24th, 2020|

Often at the head of the New Year, in both the Hebrew calendar and the civil calendar, the Holy Spirit speaks concerning things to come. As I have prayed and sought the face of God, I have been given a series of revelations concerning the new era we have now entered into of 5780, corresponding to the year of 2020 and beyond. We are not just crossing from one year to the next, but from one era or decade to the next in this strategic period of time.

We really are crossing over from one side of the river where promises are revealed to the other side where promises are manifested. Could it be that we are in a season that is described in Joshua 4? On one side of the river there were great prophetic revelations received and released.

Then there came a crossing-over moment. The priestly leaders led the way, and in the process, they were instructed to pick up stones and deposit them on the other side of the Jordan. This pile of stones became memorial stones. speaking to the generations to come of their inherited prophetic promises.

Prophet: 6 Effective Ways to Compel Evil Spirits to Leave

By |February 17th, 2020|

Jesus had authority over demons.

Wherever Jesus went, crowds gathered. Demoniacs were often healed in those crowds.

In some cases, the demons became disruptive (see Mark 3:10-11 and Luke 4:41; see also Acts 8:7, where demons shrieked in Philip’s large meetings as they were driven out of people).

Most of the time, Jesus commanded the unclean spirits not to reveal His identity:

“In the evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were possessed with demons. The whole city was gathered at the door, and He healed many who were sick with various diseases and cast out many demons. And He did not let the demons speak, because they knew Him” (Mark 1:32-34).

Regardless of the behavior of the demons, Jesus drove them out with as little as a single word (see Matt. 8:16). He also healed people who were “troubled by impure spirits” (Luke 6:18, NIV). This seems to imply a lesser degree of demonic influence—”affliction” or “oppression” as opposed to “control” or “possession.”
