The Lord has called me to a blessed season of prayer and fasting just two weeks before the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States. Given that, it is no surprise that He led me to watch and then transcribe excerpts from this key video on YouTube entitled “John Mulinde: God’s Last Word for America.” (If you have an hour, I encourage you view it on You Tube by clicking this link.)
Filmed in Dec. 2013, the video relays a prophetic vision and successive words this dear Ugandan brother had received from the Lord some (untold) years earlier. May God bless us with eyes to see and hearts to receive as we set ourselves apart from distractions for a few minutes and consider the prophetic vision and words (themselves transcribed verbatim) herein. Amen.
During his first visit to America from his homeland of Uganda, John found himself unable to break into the presence of God in prayer. When he eventually broke through to God, he was very surprised that, despite all the ministries and intercessors in America, the Lord told him “There are layers and layers of darkness covering this land like a veil separating My people from My presence and hindering their prayers, quenching the spirit of prayer, quenching faith in My people and zeal – putting them as low as it can push them.” John was very surprised to find that the American church was operating within a suffocating environment! John’s fellowship with the American pastors was affected, and he couldn’t eat for many days.
A few years later, John was given a prophetic vision upon returning to America:
The vision was of a white clay pillar about one meter high with blue flowers moulded into its base, having a beautiful round white cake, beautifully decorated, on a brown plate upon the pillar.
This all started moving away from him, and the further it moved, the larger it all became. The pillar grew into a huge hill and the cake grew into a beautiful giant city upon that hill. Out of the city came light, causing the sky to glow. He heard the Lord say, “That is the destiny of this land: to be a city set on a hill, a lamp in the darkness, and a messenger of My word.”
Then the vision returned forward and reduced in size, becoming again the pillar and the plate and the cake. The pillar cracked and panic gripped him. He cried out, “It’s going to break!” A voice behind him said, “I am looking for a man who will stand before Me on behalf of this land, but I found none.” The cracks became big, and he saw blackness inside the pillar. As he screamed, “It’s going to break!” the pillar broke, and the plate broke in two and the cake fell and broke into many pieces. The light stayed in the air for a minute as a big glow, and then it gradually died. And there was darkness.
Following the vision, John shook, wept and prayed as to what the vision meant. The Spirit of the Lord told him, “The foundations of this nation [America] have been broken: one after another, every foundation has been broken. I am looking for a man who will stand before Me on behalf of this land that I may not destroy it; that I may not give back to it as it has walked before Me.”
He prayed, “But Lord, America is filled with many big ministries of people reaching out to the rest of the world cultivating prayer and bringing the nations in coordination; how can You say there is no prayer, not enough prayer here?”
The Lord said to him, “The cry of sin in the land is louder than the cry of prayer.”
John was sickened, and continued to pray for days. He cried, “Lord, this is not the last word You have for America! I want to hear Your heart for America!”
Then the Lord spoke to him:
“The cloud of judgment is hanging over this land. Three waves of judgment are going to hit this land.
“One will be a judgment against the spirit of mammon because My people have made money a god in My place and have turned everything to rotate around money. I am going to hit their financial foundations and everything will come tumbling down. It will not only hit America: it will pull down the economies of many, many other countries, they will come tumbling. When you speak, speak out to My people, not only here, but everywhere you go: ‘Turn your eyes away from the perishables and fix them on that which is everlasting.’ Tell My people to fix their faith in Me, then when things fall apart, they will still be standing.
“A second wave will hit this land: it will be a judgment against human pride in human achievements, what man has built, done, and been able to put together. Because of that, he thinks he can be God and he thinks that he can replace God in his lifestyle, he thinks he can set his own standards. The judgment that is going to come upon that is by natural calamities; the time will come when it gets so intense that whole cities will be razed to the ground in a matter of days.
“The third one is a judgment of liberties that overthrow My statutes and standards. In the name of rights and freedoms, My people have rejected My standards, and I have chosen to institute their own standards for themselves.
“At this moment, My hand is holding back the consequences of their choices, but the day is coming when I will lift My hand and allow the flood of the consequences of the choices they have made to come flooding over the land; at that time there will be a cry for help, and help will not be near.”
John cried, “Is that your heart for America? I know You have something redemptive for this land!”
The next day he was speaking to a church in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the presence of the Lord was strong, and vivid details came forth. At one point, everyone began crying, and the crying became wailing. He stopped talking and they all went down on their faces, crying. He thought, “Lord, let this be brokenness!”
The Lord immediately told him, “It is not in brokenness that they are crying. They are crying in anger wondering, ‘How can God be so unjust to do that to us? How can a loving God do such a thing to us?’ It is in anger and unbelief and total rejection.”
Unable to join the pastors in eating that night, John travailed in prayer alone in his room. Crying, he asked the Lord what His heart was, what His last word was for America.
A long time passed before the Lord spoke to him: “Pray that the remnant will be big and strong; that they will not fear to stand, and that they will have the faith to claim this nation back. My purposes for this nation are yet unfulfilled; I am not through with the land, but I want people who will stand before Me on behalf of this land.”
John then explained that Ugandans generally have simple faith: God speaks one word and they go with that – they are willing to change their entire lives based on that single word. To John, that word was enough. He spoke it out with zeal: “Listen, we should pray that the remnant be big and strong and have the faith to claim back this land.” However, he did not see the same enthusiasm in the Americans to whom it was proclaimed.
It was three years before he could return to America – he did not want to go through such an experience again!
John now asks this key question of his American audience, people whom God has planted in this land and entrusted with the heritage of this land:
When God says the foundations of this land have been broken, what shall the righteous do?
John prays that we seek what God expects us to do in every area of our lives. If we commit to saying, “Yes, Lord” to every area the Lord indicates we need to change, we must know that this entails dramatic change! Most people want something to come in gradually, but this must be dramatic change: dramatic obedience.
Reading from Nehemiah, John exhorted us to cease our activities in order to devote ourselves to calling upon the Lord in prayer. Nehemiah did this. Nehemiah ceased his activities and sat down and wept… for some days [he] mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven (Neh. 1:4, emphasis added).
John later read from Ezekiel, “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it…” (22:30, emphasis added). Of course in the case of Israel, no one did so; the Scripture continues, “but I found none. So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign LORD.” (v 31)
[end of partial transcript]
The key take-home point is that the church remnant must build up the wall and stand in the gap via our very lives: WE must BE the intercession. WE must BE living epistles walking in purity and obedience, utterly sold out to and dependent upon the Lord Jesus Christ.
I, deanna, beseech you to join me in true repentance! The Lord has called me into a blessed season of fasting and pressing into Him as I type this!
I will close with two Scriptures. First, let us consider Nehemiah’s prayer:
“Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.
“Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’
“They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.” (Neh. 1:5-11)
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Ro. 12:1-2)
May God hear the cries of His people, have mercy on America, and bless her once again for a great harvest of souls before He raptures His Bride in the very near future!
I look forward to hearing your comments.
