“The Roar of the Lion!”

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! He is mighty, powerful, and forever worthy of our praise!
As I considered the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior this past week, my deep gratitude for what He has done on our behalf remained the lens with which I viewed the topics I prayed over in corporate prayer, staff prayer and my own personal prayer time.
I want to share an experience I had with you now to encourage you regarding our youth:
Thursday April 8th, we were in staff prayer. The Lord seemed to guide our time as we were led from praying over physical healing to the mental bondage and spiritual apathy of the youth in this nation. We blew the shofars, and I called the young people to awaken from of their slumber! The Spirit of the Lord began to pour forth His prayer over them. He said, “it’s time for them to arise and war with us!”
I began to call forth the Scriptures that our youth heard as young people, the ones they memorized, the ones God tucked away in their hearts from Sunday School class, parents reading to them, each set strategically in place to preserve them for such a time as this. I had a vision of the Scriptures bursting forth inside their spirits and watched in awe as they exploded like starbursts in their hearts! This released healing and restoration into their lives. The explosion impacted their hearts, their minds, the layers of their soul, and healing and restoration came forth.
Then, I had a vision of the Lion of Judah. He came up behind the youth and He roared with a mighty roar! I felt what could only be described as a sonic boom in the spirit realm. It burst out from my spirit and across the city, the state, and the nations. I saw with my natural eyes as the air thrust outward under the force of His explosive ROAR. It was extraordinary!
The young people could not help but respond to the roar of the Lion! They stepped forward, now alert and engaged. I watched as those in their teens, their 20s, 30s and even up to the 40s come out of a zombie-like state, suddenly alert and engaged they ran into the fight! Some were caught up in social justice platforms that are definitely contrary to God’s Word (BLM, LGTBQI+, Critical Race Theory) and when the roar of the Lion coursed through their bodies, the veil of deception came crashing down and they fled from these platforms and into the army of God. It was so powerful to see them begin to war for the Kingdom of Heaven!
Next, I had a vision of prodigals coming up the road. I was compelled to call the prodigals from the north, to the south, from the east and to the west, to come home! I shouted out “prepare the feast they are on the road, I see them, they are coming home!” and they began to run into the arms of not just their families, but the destiny God created them to fulfill!
It was incredible! The whole time of prayer was phenomenal!
Friends, some of our youths are bound in the flesh, others, many of which are represented by the visions the Lord gave me, are bound in their minds. God is about to set them FREE!
The Lord instructed me to pray this out over you and your families! I release this prayer over our ministry youth, the sons, daughters, nieces and nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of every outreach in our ministry from Joel’s Army to CedarWood. Friends, if you have children (any age) marked for the Kingdom of Heaven who have fallen into deception, speak this over them. Ignite your faith with mine and let us stand together for our young people! God is about to bring a mighty revival in and through our youth!
The Lion of Judah sent forth the call, let us war together with Him on their behalf, it’s closer than we imagine!
Blessings & love,
