The Season of “The Basilisk” 2016- and Beyond

Prayer with Fasting Needed in these Difficult Times!

Prayer with Fasting Needed in these Difficult Times!

Amos 3:7,8… Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.  A Lion has roared!  Who will not fear?  The Lord GOD has spoken!  Who can but prophesy?

This essay is one of the very most important blog posts that I have ever done!  We are living in very desperate times: the earth is reeling with calamities wherever one looks; radical terrorism is in our daily news; economic crisis is now a worldwide phenomenon; and the transition that we are all in requires fervent prayer with fasting more than ever in our lifetimes.

I strongly encourage all who come to this site to very prayerfully read this entire essay.  Once you have reached the end, you will clearly understand the urgency and gravity of what is before us with respect to the Season of the Basilisk.  This information was originally published on the outstanding web site  Elijahlist.com– June 2007.  They graciously give permission to reprint articles in their entirety as long as appropriate credit is given to the original authors as well as their web site.  Complete information will be provided at the end of this post.  I have also taken the liberty of modifying it slightly in updating the three-week period that will be critical not only this year, but also in the next few years-for future reference in concerted prayer.  I will also provide several links to additional posts on this site that will bring clarity to this need, and provide additional tools for diligent prayer with fasting.

Therefore the complete essay is as follows:

By Bob Jones and Paul Keith Davis:

 The Season of the Basilisk”… 

  • evening of July 3 through July 27, 2016

The period identified as  the Basilisk season is approaching, and we once again want to reiterate the importance of this time frame and the great need for consecration, repentance and prayer.  In times past, we greatly emphasized Israel and her need for prayer covering and spiritual intervention.  That emphasis continues.  However, we perceive an equal prominence for our nation and the American Church and its need for extraordinary covering during this notable time.

In 1999 we wrote in the “Basilisk” article that terrorism was not coming… it  is already here.  That threat remains real.  Nonetheless, intercession can nullify those spiritual plans of the enemy both for Israel and our nation.  In recent weeks, the Lord has given specific permission to call upon Heaven for the release and activation of the mighty warring angels, including the distinguished Archangel Michael.

In the book of Daniel we see specific significance on the role of Michael and implementation of Heavenly plans here on earth.  Our vision and concentration is place solely upon the Lord and His Holy Spirit.  Nevertheless, GOD has chosen the agency of man to release the resources of Heaven and hosts of ministering spirits to engage the adversary.  That provides a source of great comfort knowing there are more for us than for our enemies.

Daniel in the lions’ den

2 Kings 6:16-17… So he answered “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.  Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD 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.

Great and notable end time purposes are presently being birthed and the enemy is doing all that he can to abort the destiny of this generation.  Thankfully, the Lord has made an abundant provision of grace to establish us as overcomers if we will cooperate with the Holy Spirit and yield our will to the will of the Father.

Introduction

One need only read the daily paper or watch the evening news broadcast to discover the turmoil, tension and political unrest in the land of Israel.  Never has there been greater need for prayer concerning the government of Israel, the land of the Bible and the natural seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has not only a responsibility but also a great privilege to stand in the gap and intercede for the land of Israel during these turbulent times.

The Scriptures promise the Lord’s blessings for those who bless the natural seed of Abraham.

Genesis 12:2,3… And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.  And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.

The Lord’s love for Israel is eternal, and to share His heart is to participate in His love for the Jewish people and the land upon which the blood of Christ was spilled.

A deep and affectionate passion is being imparted to the Christian Church for the land of Israel and the natural seed of Abraham.  Even as Esther sanctified and adorned herself in her royal attire, so is the Bride of Christ in order to come boldly before the Throne of Grace to obtain mercy for the land of Israel and find divine help in time of need.

For the past several years, the Lord has spoken prophetically concerning strategic intercession against the spiritual enemies of Israel and the Church.  Perpetual, daily prayer is essential in the spiritual warfare on behalf of Israel and the enemies of the Church.  However, the Lord has identified a particular season in the Spirit in which considerable warfare is amplified.  This has been known as the Season of the Basilisk.

Over the past several years, considerable revelation has been released to disclose the workings of this evil opposition historically and currently in Israel and the Church.  As a result, we have published an article entitled “Lance of the Basilisk” to outline the revelations and prayer strategy against this great enemy.  The time is quickly approaching for this season to begin.  For the year 2011, this notable season begins the evening of July 19 and extends until August 9-which is the 9th of Av on the Jewish calendar.  It is during this time frame that heightened prayer and caution should be exercised in our spiritual warfare.

This unique season has produced many of the most catastrophic events in Jewish history.  This historic enemy of the Cross has an extraordinary hatred not only for Israel but for all of God’s covenant people.  We trust the following outline will assist each reader in this spiritual encounter.

Paul Keith Davis

Plans and Strategy For Spiritual Warfare

History has proven that nothing unites a diverse group more than having a common enemy.  Opposing political parties will even join together when our nation is confronted by a foreign enemy.  This was certainly proven during World War II and again on September 11, 2001.  This fundamental truth is also applicable to the Church.  Though there may exist different streams within the Church, as long as each stream leads to the same River, we are joined in purpose.  The Holy Spirit is not revealing to us that we have a common enemy who has set himself against the purposes of God in the earth.

The Scriptures declare that Israel is given to us as an example.  The enemies of Israel and the Old Testament typify spiritual opposition faced by the Church.  Graciously, the Lord continues to assist us in much the same way that He did Israel by sending prophets to not only reveal the plans of Heaven but also disclose the intent of the enemy.  On one such occasion, the King of Aram was enraged because he was unable to make plans for war without Elisha the prophet divulging those plans to the kingdom of Israel (2 Kings 6:8-12).

The Holy Spirit, through divine revelation, has outlined a portion of the plans of the enemy in his effort to disrupt this nation causing considerable hardship and death.  In addition, He has also revealed His divine strategy for defeating this foe in His prescribed manner.  The enemy we speak of is called Basilisk.

Visions of Basilisk

On July 23, 1996 and again on July 23, 1997-Bob Jones was given visions from the Lord displaying this powerful demonic spirit He is desiring that we understand and oppose.  It was clear in the visions that this spirit did not expect to be uncovered nor revealed.  This evil spirit is accustomed to operating in secret without being detected or obstructed.  This great enemy of the Cross has authority to release extensive destruction and misery in the earth, especially if unopposed by the praying Church.  This evil spirit is identified as Basilisk.

Basilisk is the exemplification of the devil himself whose primary purpose is death and destruction.  The natural physical death resulting from the spirit is derived from plagues, sickness and disease, natural disasters, and even terrorism.  Its origin can be traced all the way back to ancient Israel.  The Egyptians worshiped the spirit as “the Lord and King of serpents to awe all others, nor to be destroyed by any”.  They displayed a crowned Basilisk on the heads of their gods as observed in the Bembine table and other Egyptian monuments.  This demonstrates satan’s attempt to elevate himself above God as an object of worship.

In the second vision given to Bob in 1997, this spirit was multiplied hundreds of times larger than the previous year.  This demonstrates a progressive increase in authority given to the spirit.  Apparently, during certain cyclical seasons, a tremendous increase in power is given to this spirit to cause death and destruction.  Additionally, in 1997 this spirit was shown brooding over a nest of eggs desiring to periodically birth wrath and misery in the earth.

Isaiah 59:5… They hatch vipers’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web;  he that eats of their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a viper breaks out. 

With each revelation, this prince of darkness expressed considerable surprise at being exposed as he is accustomed to operating undetected.  So well hidden is the spirit that he did not even require the darkness of night to operate as most evil spirits.  He can operate and even prevail in the brightness of the noonday.  Though he does not require the darkness of night, like all evil spirits, he prefers to be hidden in darkness.

Psalm 91:5,6… You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

Basilisk in Scripture

The word Basilisk is derived from basiliskos meaning “kinglet” or “king” signifying a mythical reptile hatched by a serpent from a cock’s egg.  In Scripture, Basilisk is sometimes translated “cockatrice” or “adder”.  The Hebrew word for Basilisk occurs in Psalm 91:13, Isaiah 14:29, Isaiah 11:8, Isaiah 30:6, Isaiah 59:5, Proverbs 23:32, and Jeremiah 8:17.

Psalm 91:13… Thou shalt walk upon the asp and on the Basilisk; and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.

Proverbs 23:32… But in the end, it will bite like a snake, and will spread abroad poison like a Basilisk.

Isaiah 11:8… And the suckling child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall thrust his hand into the den of the Basilisk.

Isaiah 14:29… Rejoice not thou, whole Philistia, that the rod of him that struck thee is broken in pieces; for out of the root of the serpent shall come forth a Basilisk, and his seed shall swallow the bird.

Isaiah 30:6… The burden of the beasts of the South.  In a land of trouble and distress, from whence comes the lioness and the lion, the viper and the flying Basilisk.  They carry their riches upon the shoulders of beasts, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels to a people that shall not be able to profit them.

Jeremiah 8:17… For behold, I will send serpents, basilisks, among you which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.  

In the land of Palestine, this term is generally presumed to denote the cerastes or horned viper, a very poisonous serpent, considered one of the most dangerous of all vipers.  Clearly, the spiritual symbolism points to a prince of darkness diametrically opposed to the purposes of God in the earth.  In Daniel 10 we discover the Prince of Persia withstanding Gabriel prohibiting the release of divine instruction for 21 days.  Basilisk, also a high-ranking prince, desires to likewise withstand the intentions of God and has been delegated the power of death.  It was believed in mythology that the power of death existed in his breath or even in the glance of his eyes.

In each of the visions, the Holy Spirit gave Bob Psalm 91:13 as a defense against this evil opposition.  Repentance and steadfast faith in the declared Word provides a protection against this identified enemy.  In so doing, our sanctified hearts would then be prepared for the release of the divine authority necessary to defeat this enemy.

The Scripture declares our foot shall be placed upon the scorpion and the basilisk, not because of any strength of our own, but because of the great victory appropriated to us through Christ.  The Church has been given authority to deal with this spirit, yet mankind has perished throughout history because of lack of knowledge concerning this enemy and the appropriate application of our Savior’s triumph over all opposition.  In Luke 10:19 the Lord promises that He has given us authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means injure us [from an eternal perspective].

The Anti-Nicene Fathers records the priceless writings of the early Church leaders.  One of these great Church patriarchs was Irenaeus, an anointed messenger to the second century church who died a martyr’s death.  His words provide valuable insight on this subject:

“For this end did He put enmity between the serpent and the woman and her seed, they keeping it up mutually: He, the sole of whose foot should be bitten, having power also to tread upon the enemy’s head; but the other biting, killing, and impeding the steps of man, until the seed did come appointed to tread down his head-which was born of Mary, of whom the prophet speaks: “Thou shalt tread upon the asp  and the basilisk; thou shall trample down the lion and the dragon”- indicating that sin, which was set up and spread out against man, and which rendered him subject to death, should be deprived of its power, along with death which rules [over men]; and that the lion, that is antichrist, rampant against mankind in the latter days, should be trampled down by Him; and that He should bind “the dragon, that old serpent” and subject him to the power of man, who had been conquered so that all his might should be trodden down.”

The great theologian and writer Tertullian spoke of Basilisk in this regard:

“Who is He that shall bestow the power of treading on serpents and scorpions?  Shall it be He who is the Lord of all living creatures- or he who is not god over a single lizard?  Happily the Creator has promised by Isaiah to give this power even to little children, of putting their hand in the cockatrice den and on the hole of the young asps without at all receiving hurt.  And, indeed, we are aware (without doing violence to the literal sense of the passage, since even these noxious animals have actually been unable to do hurt where there has been faith) that under the figure of scorpions and serpents are portended evil spirits, whose very prince is described by the name of serpent, dragon, and every other most conspicuous beast in the power of that Creator.

This power that Creator conferred first of all upon His Christ, even as the 90th Psalm says to Him:  “Upon the asp and the basilisk shall Thou tread; the lion and the dragon shall Thou trample underfoot.”  So also Isaiah:  ‘In that day the Lord God shall draw His sacred, great, and strong sword’ (even His Christ) ‘against that dragon, that great and torturous serpent; and He shall slay him in that day.’  But when the same prophet says, ‘The way shall be called a clean and holy way; over it the unclean thing shall not pass, nor shall be there any unclean way; but the dispersed shall pass over it, and they shall not err therein; no lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon; it shall not be found there,’ he points out the way of faith, by which we shall reach to God; and then to this way of faith He promises this utter crippling and subjugation of all noxious animals.

This evil spirit is also described in Deuteronomy 32:24, according to the rabbinical writings.

Deuteronomy 32:24… And they shall be wasted with hunger, devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction; I will also send against them the teeth of beasts, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

The early rabbis taught that this passage could accurately be rendered “and I will fight against them with flaming demons”.  The “flaming demons” would be a reference to the spirit that the Lord desires that we understand.

Basilisk in History

Throughout history the spirit has sponsored plagues at various times causing great numbers of people to experience death.  During those periods of time in history, especially the Dark Ages, man attempted various superstitions and fables in his attempt to combat this evil spirit and the death that it had brought, rather than applying the blood of Christ and accepting the victory [of the Cross] through His revealed Word.  This spirit promotes religious superstition in place of faith.  This resulted in Christians praying out of their superstitious imagination rather than the Holy Spirit anointed promises of God.  In his address to the Athenians, the apostle Paul described them as being “too superstitious”, or “religious” as some translations rendered it.  Paul presented the truth of the Gospel to replace misguided trust in fables and superstitions.  The Lord desires to do the same today.

During the 1997 vision of Basilisk, Bob saw this prince of darkness approaching land between two bridges utilizing the winds bringing plagues, and viruses, and natural disasters causing considerable misery.  It was revealed in the vision and confirmed through Jewish literature that this evil spirit prevails during a certain season of the year.  This season is called Bein Ha’m’tarim by the Jewish writers.

This term means “between the straits” or “dire straits”.  This season is a three week cycle beginning on the 17th of Tammuz extending until the 9th of Av in the Judaic calendar.  It is a time when the spirit that is prevalent, is even more predominant when unchallenged by the authority of Christ given to the Church through His shed blood.  This high level authority can not be combated individually and but must be engaged through corporate united intercessory prayer.

At the time that the subsequent vision was revealed to Bob in 1997, hurricane Danny entered Mobile Bay in Alabama, in an area that perfectly fits the description “between the bridges”.  According to biblical definitions, Dan means “to judge” once again pointing to the coming just  God.  Uncharacteristically, hurricane Danny brooded over Mobile Bay for twelve hours dumping a reported 40 inches of rain combined with high winds seemingly verifying in the natural the spiritual truths of this revelation.

Lamentations 1:1-3… How lonely sits the city that was full of people!  How like a widow is she, who was great to among the nation!  The princess among the provinces has become a slave!  She weeps bitterly in the night, her tears are on her cheeks; Among all her lovers She has none to comfort her.  All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; they have become her enemies.  Judah has gone into captivity, Under affliction and hard servitude; She dwells among the nations, She finds no rest; All her persecutors overtake her in dire straits.

The effects of Basilisk are not exclusively demonstrated during this season, rather it is during that specific span that the authority of Basilisk operates at its peak.  History records many of the catastrophic events that have taken place during these 21 days within these dates.

17th of Tammuz

  • Moses smashed the tablets of the Torah at Mt. Sinai.
  • Daily sacrifices ceased.
  • A Torah scroll was burned in the Temple by “Apostomos”.
  • An idol was erected in the Temple.
  • The city wall was finally breached.

9th of Av

  • 1200 B.C.- Israel told by God in the wilderness that generation would not enter the land of promise.
  • 586 B.C.– The Babylonian army destroyed the Holy Temple.
  • 70 A.D.- Titus and the Roman army destroyed the Holy Temple.
  • 135 A.D.- “Bethar” the stronghold of Bar Kochba, fell ending the last trial for Jewish independence.
  • 136 A.D.– Rome began to erect the pagan city on the site of the Temple dedication.
  • 1096 A.D.– The first crusades began.
  • 1290 A.D.– The Jews were expelled from England.
  • 1306 A.D.– The Jews were expelled from France.
  • 1492 A.D.– King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella signed expulsion.  By July on the 9th of Av, all Jews had to be out of Spain.
  • 1648 A.D.– Chmelnicky massacred tens of thousands of Polish Jews.
  • 1914 A.D.– Declarations for World War I began.
  • 1942 A.D.– Plans for the annihilation of Jews were drafted escalating World War II.

Historically, the 21 days extending from the 17th of Tammuz until the 9th of Av represented a notable time of bitterness and destruction for the Jews.  According to the rabbis, the demon that prevails during this time is also called “ketev” meaning destruction/bitterness.

To Jewish rabbis regarded “ketev” not solely as a plague, but a demon with authority to cause death and destruction through plagues.  It was during this precise time that the Lord’s prophecy concerning the destruction of Jerusalem was fulfilled.  On the 17th of Tammuz 70 A.D. the Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem.  For three weeks Roman troops ransacked and destroyed the city until the 9th of Av when they burned the Temple [down to the ground- fulfilling Matt.24:2].  In both the Babylonian and Roman captivity, the Temple was destroyed on this agonizing date.  It is reported that during the Holocaust, the Nazis systematically chose the 9th of Av to carry out murderous and other demonically inspired actions against the Jewish community.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn- “The Biblical Calendar & The 9th of AV”

The prophets Zechariah spoke of these days:

Zechariah 8:19… Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘The fast of the fourth, the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth (months) will become joy, gladness, and cheerful feasts for the house of Judah; so love truth and peace.’

The fast of the fourth month was to be conducted on the 17th of Tammuz representing a day of mourning because of the capture of Jerusalem and the various other calamitous events that took place on this date.  The fast of the fifth month was to take place on the 9th of Av because of the historical tragedies that occurred on this date.  These periods of mourning and fasting were to be conducted until the promise of the coming restoration of Judah and the Messianic Kingdom.

The ancient leaders recognized that the righteous must be hidden in the secret place of the Most High during this time of trouble, which they believed was a dress rehearsal for the birth pangs of Messiah.  In Isaiah 26:17-21 the prophet Isaiah speaks of the season where the righteous are directed to hide themselves while wrath and indignation take its course.  Zephaniah 2:3 also prophetically forecasts a season when the Godly are directed to seek the Lord… seek righteousness… and seek humility and perhaps be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.

According to these rabbis, the heat of the noonday from 12:00 until 3:00 was a time of extreme activity for this evil spirit.

Even a review of recent years will reveal that this season of time has produced considerable destruction through storms, droughts, floods, extreme heat and famine.  If this evil prince continues to go unchecked through intercessory prayer, then great destruction will come to people.  We must be brought out of darkness into light so that we would not perish because of a lack of knowledge concerning the spirit and its operations. 

On July 16, 1994- which was the 9th of Av on the Hebrew calendar, the 21 pieces of the Shoemaker-Levi comet began its bombardment on the planet Jupiter.  Jupiter is commonly recognized as a symbol of idolatry and paganism.  One of the most devastating events in the history of Israel occurred when the image of Jupiter was placed in the Temple of God.  We continue to observe the feast of Hanukkah as a celebration of the victory of the Maccabees, and the removing of this pagan god from the Temple and re-instituting Temple worship.

It is clearly prophetically significant that the Shoemaker-Levi comet began its assault on the planet Jupiter on this notable date.  The heavens declare the Glory of God!  It is also significant that the comet was broken into 21 pieces also representing the 21 days extending from the 17th of Tammuz until the 9th of Av, the season in which this prevailing spirit operates with its greatest authority.

Even though Jupiter is a symbol of idolatry for the pagan world, it is also a term for righteousness in the Hebrew language.  The Hebrew name for Jupiter is “Tzedeq” and comes from the word meaning ‘righteousness’ or ‘righteous one’.  It is from this term that the name Melchizedek is derived denoting ‘King of Righteousness’.

Clearly we can see that satan has perverted Jupiter into a symbol of idolatry.  However, we can glean understanding from this term as a symbol of righteousness in the hope of our being cleansed by the Truth of God’s Word thereby making us a suitable habitation for His Holy Spirit so we can share in His Holiness.

The Plans of Basilisk

In the enemy’s desire to weaken our overall economy, Basilisk intends to bring such calamity to various geographic regions so as to destroy vital supplies, produce and agricultural goods- further disrupting our economy beyond the staggering cost natural disasters and terrorism already generate.  Again, the Lord has made it painfully clear, terrorism is not coming, it is already here. [Note that this was originally written in 1999.]

Much of the terrorism and disasters will be directed at densely Jewish population areas.  The ripple effect of these calamities will not be limited to those residing exclusively in these states; rather, the entire nation will be adversely affected if the enemy successfully carries out his plans.  These supplies are essential for meeting the needs of our population as well as those we support abroad.  With a diminished national security and a crippled economy, we would then be vulnerable to military conflict.

A weakened military force combined with severe economic hardship would make it substantially more difficult to defend and supply the needs of our nation.  More importantly, our ability and willingness to stand by Israel would be compromised.

The enemy desperately desires to separate this nation from Israel.  If successful, the spiritual and natural implications would be significant.  The Bible plainly announces that the Lord will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that cursed her.  One of the great attributes of this nation’s leadership in times past has been the willingness to adamantly [and unequivocally] support Israel, thereby releasing divine prosperity and blessing.

Additionally, Israel provides America with a strong military ally in that region of the world.  Without the close alliance of Israel, our military and economic opportunities in the Middle East and Europe would be severely compromised.  Our enemy is attempting to prematurely set in motion events before their time.  He is attempting to bring about military conflict, economic shaking, and political upheaval prematurely; especially hostile confrontation between Israel and her many enemies.  God’s people must stand in the gap as a voice toward Heaven withstanding these evil aspirations.

Defeating Basilisk

Our Lord in His grace has given us this insight into the plans of the enemy for the purpose of equipping us with the blueprint for success in defeating this adversary.  The more we understand his plans and purposes the more capable we will be to pray with pinpoint precision.

The Lord also has His plans and purposes;  plans for welfare and not for calamity toward those obediently following His divinely ordained strategy.  Nothing could be more rewarding for a Christian than to find favor with God by willingly offering ourselves as instruments of righteousness, hating what He hates and loving that which He loves.  This can be accomplished, at least in part, by committing ourselves faithfully to this battle both individually and corporately.

Foremost in our preparation for this battle is sincere repentance for our sins and the sins of our ‘fathers’.  Repentance will always bring forth times of refreshing from the Presence of the Lord.  Genuine sorrow that is not merely the articulation of our mouths but the incentives of our hearts will also paved the way for the impartation of righteousness and divine authority necessary for defeating our enemies.  The Scriptures declare that our Savior came into this world to destroy the works of the devil.  He has chosen His Church as the instrument through which this victory is to be manifested.

Daniel 9 records the great prophet repenting for his sins and those of his people, leadership and forefathers for not having obeyed the Word of the Lord to obediently walk in His teachings.  Like Israel of old, we have allowed the spirit of the world to invade our lives promoting compromise and spiritual error.  We are now being given the divine opportunity to make this right to individually and corporately.  City and regional repentance is especially crucial in the south eastern United States, the target zone for Basilisk.  Sincere repentance will touch the heart of the Father releasing the spiritual ‘ammunition’ to defeat Basilisk.

This victory will be achieved through corporate intercessory prayer.  When the early believers worked together praying IN ONE ACCORD, great and mighty things were accomplished for the Kingdom of Heaven.  [EVEN MORE SO IS REQUIRED OF US AT THIS TIME- THE VERY END OF THE CHURCH AGE!!!]

Romans 15:5-6… Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus; that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Few things please the Father more than to see His people in unity:

Psalm 133:1-2… How good and pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!  It is like the precious oil upon the head, coming down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard.

Though often geographically separated, we are united in purpose with one mind and passion… to defeat the enemies of our God.  As one expositor put it, “As the instruments of a great concert under the direction of a concert master, so the Holy Spirit blends together the lives of members of the ekklesia of Christ.”

Psalm 91 has been given to us as a Scripture of protection, an instrument of war against this evil spirit. The Church has been given authority over all the power of the enemy… authority and victory in Christ must be rightly appropriated through the Body.  Like the sons of Issachar, we must be equipped with the knowledge of the times and seasons of the Spirit, dedicated to the Lord’s plans and strategy.  As many as are lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.  The Lord is calling for repentance and corporate intercession against the specific plans of the enemy here outlined.

To better understand the spiritual dynamic power of prayer with fasting, always guided by the Holy Spirit- please study for your edification and the pulling down of all strongholds:

The Joy of Fasting: Discipline, Deliverance, and Delight 

2 Corinthians 10:4-6… For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the Will of GOD… bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and BEING READY TO PUNISH ALL DISOBEDIENCE WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED.

For deeper insight into how GOD the Father sees His children; to better understand the elementary principles of Christ (Hebrews 6:1-3); the ‘mysteries’ of Christ’s Kingdom; and our individual and corporate calling, commission, and empowerment- please review my first published book and the Table of Contents on the Amazon website linked here via Book Title:  “Thy Kingdom Come- Here and Now!”

Continued Blessings in Christ,  ~Santos

  2. Hey Santos,

    I have noticed that since this “season of basilisk” started about 3 weeks ago, the USA stock market has been falling and will most likely continue to plunge the next two days as we finish this basilisk season this coming Tuesday the 9th of August (9th of Av). BUT, as you say, the answer is in corporate intercession, and that was done yesterday on Aug. 6th at Reliant stadium in Houston where 30,000 praying, fasting Christian intercessors stood in the gap for our nation! Like you and 80,000 others, I watched and worshipped with this event via the live streaming at the response USA website. What a change in the atmosphere I felt after this time of real intercession for our nation! Just like the band Third Day says, “Cry out to Jesus!”

    Love to you in Him,
    Paul Jab

    • And yet Brother Paul our spiritual warfare continues with our economy in need of positive overhaul, Israel in grave danger from her surrounding enemies, and the majority of the church dangerously ‘at ease’ in Zion. I pray that when you receive my book we will be able to talk more about how we can continue in pulling down strongholds according to His Perfect Will and timing.

      Kingdom Blessings, always in HIM, Santos

      • Hey Santos,

        I did get your book in the mail yesterday and started reading it today! Thanks so much for sending it.

        Kingdom blessings!

        Paul
