JOEL’S ARMY VISION
Nita Johnson, founder of World For Jesus Ministries was commissioned by the Lord over a decade ago to begin the work of calling intercessors together to pray for the Church and for the Nation. (America)
Why Begin a Prayer Army?
Ps. 47:9 “…the shields of the earth belong to God:…”
Nita saw shields lighted up and covering the landscape all across the nation, going down deep into the bedrock and literally stabilizing the earth. There were shields covering every state of the nation. These represented Prayer Cells led by well-trained Prayer Cell Leaders who were guiding Prayer Cell Members in weekly intercessory prayer. World For Jesus Ministries is raising up Joel’s Army of intercessors who faithfully pray the weekly Prayer Points Nita receives from the Lord.
Ezek. 22:30 “And I sought a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it,…”
For well over a decade we have seen and experienced the direct results of prayers that have hit their mark, disrupting the plans of the Global Elite which seek to dismantle nations. Yes, it is only the prayers of the saints that will carry our nations through the difficult times coming upon the world.
God says in Joel 2:15-17 “Blow the trumpet in Zion; set apart a fast (a day of restraint and humility): call a solemn assembly. Gather the people, sanctify the congregation….”Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; and let them say, Have pity and spare Your people, O Lord, and give not Your heritage to reproach, that the (heathen) nations should rule over them…”
If God hears the humble prayers of repentance from his own people, then He gives a glorious promise of a better future.
Joel 2:28,29 “And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit.”
Why is Identificational Repentance So Critical to Joel’s Army Prayers?
Nita has taught that periodically every nation comes up before the Lord for review. If national sins have piled up without repentance, or without sufficient repentance and that nation is turning father away from God, He will begin sending disciplines to call it back. If there is still no repentance His dealings with that nation will escalate from lesser to greater degrees of discipline and moving toward judgment. At first we may see limited natural disasters which afterward start building toward famines, plagues or ultimately war and forced dispersion.
Lk 6:36-38 speaks of both blessings and judgments returning in like kind and like measure to what we or our nations have issued to others. “For with the measure you deal out, it will be measured back to you.” Lk. 6:38. We will often find the roots of our present difficulties reflected in unknown and/or unrepentant national sins.
God Has Made A Remedy
If the Lord is able to find someone who will humble himself and repent for a nation’s sins, as if they are his own, then He will cleanse and heal that nation. God first established this principal of Identificational Repentance in Lev. 26:40-42. “But if they confess their own and their fathers’ iniquity in their treachery which they committed against Me – and also that because they walked contrary to Me I also walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies – if then their uncircumcised hearts and humbled and they then accept the punishment for their iniquity, Then will I (earnestly) remember My covenant…and (earnestly) remember the land.”
Joel’s Army has been established to repent for our national sins as the Lord reveals their roots prophetically. Research has supported the facts of the existence of these national sins in our history, two of the most serious of which before God are idolatry and innocent bloodshed.
We wage war on our knees, humbling ourselves and repenting of these sins and seeking the return of His favor upon the Church and the Nation. We practice Biblical prophetic intercession in our local Prayer Cells. We also endeavor to pray down Revival and Spiritual Reformation upon our nations, in order to release into them their God-given destinies.
We believe in God’s promises for the Church and for the Nations. “And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of (buildings that have laid waste for) many generations; and you shall be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.” Is. 58:12
