Year 2021, get ready to fight… a counterattack is coming

On September 20 of this year, the Lord led me to consider Jonah’s proclamation about Nineveh, particularly about the danger of destruction that was looming over the city, which although it was because of God’s just judgment because of the evil of its very inhabitants, it was an imminent danger because they did not know precisely about its existence.

As I was studying about Jonah’s proclamation, the Lord revealed to me another danger, this time about the danger of destruction that is looming over the United States of America because of all the actions of Peace that have been reached for the benefit of Israel, and for the confirmation of Jerusalem as the capital of the Kingdom, but above all, because the same American people have not understood God’s choice for them at this time. There is a plot from hell to reverse all these efforts, and to try, the Lord pointed out to me that the danger of attack would begin on November 3, that is, the day of the elections. For that date I published the writing: Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown…

So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.  And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. […]

There are forces of darkness pushing the circumstances and forcing situations to cause stagnation to the prophetic work of the Kingdom on earth, the attack consists not in preventing the fulfillment of prophetic events, but in establishing a ‘delay’ in the time of their fulfillment; the prophetic Word depends on the fulfillment of time to validate itself as God’s work.[1]  A delay in the execution according to the fulfillment of time invalidates the prophetic action, and gives Satan the authority to operate with ‘right’ over the regions and over its inhabitants, for a time equivalent to the time that would have lasted the realization of the prophetic Word; it is understandable now, why the prophets of God are strongly persecuted and attacked,[2] and others are seduced by fame and popularity.[3]

The year 2020 is a year of prudent and foolish virgins, it is the year where the difference of the spiritual condition of each one is established; and we begin to see this with the arrival of the pandemic and the closing of the temples because of the lockdown, many believers were confronted in their faith without being able to understand or explain if this came from God or was a product of the devil.

Donald Trump, called by the prophet Isaiah as ‘the man that executeth my counsel’,[4] acting on God’s instruction, has initiated a process of aligning the nations around Israel, and this, to fulfill the prophetic teaching found in the book of Exodus. Observe the Word that Jehovah-God commissions Moses to deliver to Pharaoh: And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn.[5]  The word ‘firstborn’ means the first of many who will come after this one, otherwise it would say, my only son. Israel is seen by God as his firstborn son, which teaches us that ‘other’ nations will arise to unite with Israel, as son nations, and will rise as nations of Righteousness.[6] So the work is just beginning.

According to the text of Isaiah, the appearance of the man of my counsel is subordinate to the appearance of a supernatural sign. The text states that along with the convocation to the man that executes my counsel, Jehovah also calls the bird of prey.

How do we fight this spiritual battle? What should we do? The task that is commissioned to us is a task that is carried out with wisdom; any other strategy will simply not prosper.

The instruction that the Spirit of Truth gives us is, get out of every medium that spreads resistance to the Will of God, repudiate all its arguments and its advertising media.

 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

Isaiah 52:11

My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.

Jeremiah 51:45

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Revelation 18:4

No one who is contaminated with the spirit of rebellion will be able to fight against what the prophetic Word wants to stop; being contaminated does not necessarily mean being in sin, it means rather, tolerating what God hates and repudiates;[7] it means sympathizing with those who rise up in opposition to the Lord.[8]

My people, go ye out of the midst of her, it means to ‘break’ ties with those who manifestly oppose what God is doing, and/or that stand against those whom God has chosen to do His work.  This time of opposition to Donald Trump, identify those who have joined the plot to remove him, and break ties with them, abandon all your arguments and your advertising media, even if they are social pages. The time we are approaching demands integrity of faith, alliances with darkness blind us.

One more instruction, prepare yourself in the study of the Scriptures to deal with what God wants us to do in this time of darkness that has already begun.[9]  Let me explain, every time has its own emphasis, not every epoch follows the same instruction; this time of pandemic has shown us that God’s demand is not directed to ‘evangelize’ and/or to raise up churches, but many have not understood this, this time is to be kept, it is to be hidden, it is a time of preparation.[10]

The failure of the foolish virgins, according to the parable, was that they believed that all missions are carried out in the same way, they did not consider that there are missions that have their own characteristics, that have contingencies. The foolish virgins were foolish because they could not understand about the times; the times we are living in are prophetic times, they demand precision, they are not carried out according to ecclesiastically developed protocols, they are part of the strange operations[11] that God develops to manifest His Power and establish His Sovereignty over the face of the earth.

Above all, do not neglect your calling; remember that you are light and that God has made you dwell in a place not to enjoy it, but so that from there you may establish the Glory of the Most High through your faith. This time is for establishing faith, do not seek to ‘evangelize’, seek rather to establish faith, conversions will be made by the Spirit of Truth.

The year 2020, the year of perfect vision

And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Luke 8:10

I was remembering that last year, just around this time, at a meeting with several friends of mine, I jokingly asked them: -Do you know what the year 2020 has been called? I remember that they gave me several names; of course, none of them coincided with the answer I had, since it was something I had coined, in a humorous way; at the end I explained that because it was the year 2020, it would be called the year of perfect vision: 20/20 vision. At that moment I presented it as something humorous, an occurrence that came to my mind for the moment.

A couple of days ago the phrase came back to my mind again but this time with a greater seriousness, and for the moment I thought, a year ago at this time, did the phrase really come to me as a momentary occurrence, or was God troubling my spirit about the things we would face?

The year 2020 will go down in history as a year loaded with many upheavals, I have not read any article reporting on what this year meant for humanity, but I think that from someone doing so it will highlight that the year 2020 brought social crisis, economic scarcity and death, among other things. Definitely the year 2020 is a turning point, the history of humanity has taken a turn, the question is, where to? and why?

Of course, these ‘convulsions’ of the year 2020 are forms of evaluation of a journalistic vision; but we men and women of faith are not alarmists, we are not impressed by the adversities, since we know from the Scriptures that God can even ‘reveal’ the sovereignty that He has over the earth and all its inhabitants; so, if the year 2020 has to do with ‘perfect vision’, something more than simple misfortunes God wants us to see; the 20/20 vision has to do with the spiritual and prophetic vision of how God evaluates situations, and how He intends for men and women of faith to evaluate situations.

The year began with some pretty hectic situations, the impeachment of President Donald Trump (January 16 – February 5, 2020); it was followed by the alarming news that we are facing a ‘pandemic’, and that it is producing many deaths (March 11); then, in the summer, the six tropical storms and seven hurricanes that directly hit the United States; the two hurricanes that hit Central America; the upsurge of COVID-19; and now, at the end of the year, a rigged election that, according to many testimonies, there has been a deliberate conspiracy to remove Donald Trump and put in his place a person who, because of the way he chose his cabinet, is the continuity of Barack Obama’s government.

What is all this data telling us? What should we see for it? These data are leading us to understand that there are forces of darkness pushing the circumstances and forcing situations to cause stagnation to the prophetic work of the Kingdom on earth, it is a time of prelude to persecution over the work of faith that will rise in a very subtle way through the media, all to make men and women of faith ‘ashamed’ of their faith in Jesus and the prophetic work; I find that there is a similarity between what happened during this year and the form of oppression and stagnation provoked by Tobias and Sambalat to prevent the Jews from rebuilding Jerusalem upon the return from captivity.[1]  The pandemic brought as a direct consequence that many churches were closed for several months, many ministers were not prepared for such a situation and could not understand the transition process to which God is taking us.

In prophetic matters about the role of nations, the book of Daniel opened the way to understand that nations respond to spiritual powers that seek to establish hegemony over entire regions. The year 2019 ended up showing two nations -USA and China- in a commercial struggle. Why the commercial war between the USA and China, only free trade competition? History has taught us that political power is gained in the field of trade,[2] so whoever dominates the market will dominate their competitors politically and economically.

As for the pandemic, is it really a new viral disease, or a genetic manipulation produced in the laboratories? Why did COVID-19 originate in China but has attacked the rest of the countries in the world more? The ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China, which threatened to stall the trade in Chinese products, was diminished precisely by the emergence of COVID-19. If people in China continue to ingest bats and pangolins, which many believe were the cause of the emergence of COVID-19, why haven’t they continued to be infected as they were when the pandemic began? In recent months, even a Chinese intervention in the November 3 election has come to light.

What will we be exposed to in the next few years? The people of faith must learn to live life in Jesus by faith; relying on a vaccine is not the solution to a crisis of faith.

Why is COVID-19’s rebound? Is it a natural curve? In recent months a global operation with a climate background has come to light, which has nothing to do with COVID-19, but has used the initiative of countries to restore lockdowns, to show the need to ‘reform’ the traditional work lifestyle and maintain the online operations that predominated during the time of the lockdown initially decreed by governments.

The operation is called, ‘the great reset’,[3] because of its English name; its slogan reads: “To reset and shape the future we want”. The people behind this operation are extremely influential people, including many rulers of industrialized countries, but surprisingly, Donald Trump does not support this operation. The upsurge in COVID-19 is unnatural; the governments of several industrialized countries lifted health measures early to ‘expose’ the population to greater contagion, and then forced the reintroduction of lockdowns to extend the online form of work that had been in place since March.

Why do they want to remove Donald Trump from the presidency of the USA? Is there a conspiracy in the world behind all these events? Donald Trump is a threat to this operation ‘green new deal’, it is not just a political party and part of the population that does not tolerate him; Donald Trump got more votes on November 3rd than any other previous president in time for re-election, so it is not for lack of sympathy that they are looking to remove him from the presidency. The operation of November 3rd came about as a plan B of not prevailing impeachment against him, this operation of electoral fraud was planned with enough time; if you check the text in Esther’s book about the conspiracy of Haman son of Amadatha Agageo to exterminate the Jews, you will see that the conspiracy operation was done twelve months in advance.[4]

Where is God in all this? The year 2020 is about to end, and when the clocks of the whole world strike twelve one minutes on December 31st, and we have entered the year 2021, we will begin to see God’s supernatural intervention on all this work of darkness that man has contributed to stop the prophetic advance of the Kingdom on earth, because there is time for everything. All this that is happening worldwide is only a warning of the soon appearance of the Antichrist, and of which many men and women of faith are not prepared to resist.

There is no doubt that the year 2020 has been a different year, but everything that has happened should not go unnoticed, among it, above all, the replacement of Donald Trump; the extraordinary amount of tropical storms and hurricanes that hit the nation during the year should be a warning about what they are exposing themselves to if Donald Trump is removed from the presidency.

Prophetically speaking, the year 2020 is a pivotal year, there is a turn in the way God will be delivering prophetic Revelation as part of the signs of the times, it is not only about ‘natural’ events but, above all, the course of action that will be developing in the nations; the nations of the world will be intervening directly by the hand of God, under this vision should be understood the hurricanes over Central America.

The year 2020 is a year of prudent and foolish virgins,[5] it is the year where the difference of the spiritual condition of each one is established; and we begin to see this with the arrival of the pandemic and the closing of the temples because of the lockdown, many believers were confronted in their faith without being able to understand or explain if this came from God or was a product of the devil. As the fatuous virgins were unable to move on to the next phase of the operation for which they were chosen, many ministries and congregations were left on the road without the option of restructuring.

The month of January will be a month of spiritual upheaval, it will bring much more confusion than what COVID-19 brought about in terms of faith; many will succumb, but others will be affirmed, and this is the work of the Spirit of Truth, that the Word established by the Lord may be fulfilled: Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.

[5]     Mathew 25:1-14

Did Donald Trump really lose the 2020 presidential election?

Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;…  For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

Isaiah 45:1-6

It is known to all that last Tuesday, November 3rd of this year, presidential elections were held in the United States of America, the result still in development, displaces the current president, Donald Trump, to continue leading the presidency for his second term.

The results generated from that date have a spiritual and prophetic value for the people of God, because we have the confirmation by the Spirit of Truth that Donald Trump fulfills a mission of prophetic fulfillment on earth, which consists of establishing upon Israel the time of restoration of all things prophesied from ancient times,[1] and certified by the apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans.[2]

Even before Donald Trump began his first term in office, Jewish Rabbi Hamekubal Rab Kuk assured that Donald Trump would win the election, and that as president, he would play an important role in the arrival of ‘Mashiach Ben David’;[3]  From there, others began to identify that Trump as president would follow a similar trajectory to the one followed by ‘Cyrus’ with respect to Israel after the end of the transportation to Babylon;[4] As far as I am concerned, the Lord has allowed me to understand that Donald Trump is “the man that executeth my counsel” who fulfills a prophetic purpose of restoring Jerusalem as the capital of the Kingdom, a theme we developed in connection with his first trip to the Middle East.[5] 

So, the theme of the 2020 elections in the United States of America becomes important not only because of the political phenomenon that has developed around the counting of votes, but more so, because if Donald Trump has not completed his spiritual commission from the Lord, to be ‘displaced’ would mean a truncation of the prophetic realization about Israel, and more seriously, it would mean an open rebellion of the American people to God’s visitation of that nation.

What is really behind this whole political operation that seeks to displace Donald Trump from the presidency of the United States?

The recognition that Joe Biden is the winner of the electoral race, news released on Saturday, November 7, by most of the nation’s news agencies, represents a ‘coup d’état’ against President Donald Trump, and a ‘hypnotic’ way that the media is using to move large masses of people and lead them to follow a pattern of violent behavior, according to the subliminal algorithm suggested in their own press releases; This situation has a spiritual weight and it is of the utmost importance that men and women of faith know it, because it means that the media, mostly the news agencies, are emerging as the sources of information that will cause the masses to turn against the communities of faith. We will begin to see this more frequently starting next year.

The media are launching a campaign from the darkness to activate in the air the demonic forces of evil prepared for this time, to introduce violence and chaos into the nation.

But the media are not acting alone, they are just the tip of the iceberg; this ‘fraud’ scheme that has come to light, which introduced absentee ballots under the names of deceased people, and originated electronic ‘issues’ to intentionally read ballots under the name of Joe Biden, etc., is part of a Masonic operation that in the United States, and other industrialized countries, has taken center stage as part of the satanic agenda to take nations of the world and establish in and by them, an operation of iniquity and remove all possibility of prophecy being fulfilled.

The men and women of Revelation must understand that these final times there will be a ‘clandestine’ persecution originated by the Masonic movements, persecution not only means opposition, but in several cases, support, cooperation, even economic aid; such situations must be denounced immediately, the apostle Peter calls this satanic way of operating, the way of Balaam,

which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

2nd. Peter 2:15

The situation generated by the results of the presidential election in the United States of America is not only an isolated issue that concerns the citizens of that nation, it is an issue that affects us all,[6] ignoring it takes us away from “things that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man“;[7]  we are facing a true spiritual war that is being fought in the air of the American nation to take control of world government, it is necessary that the army of the Living God stands in the gap through prayer and intercession, so that direct help comes from heaven and clears the air over the United States of America.

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Daniel 4:25

This situation of impasse in the presidential elections of the United States of America, in which it has not yet been defined who will be the next president of the American nation for the next four years, has led me to ask the Lord what all this means; the Spirit of the Lord has led me to understand that behind this almost chaotic political situation there is a teaching-instruction from Jehovah-God to discern how the understanding people should walk in these next four years.

To understand it with greater clarity of spirit, and to place ourselves in the correct position of a watchtower that watches over the spiritual value of the end times, the impasse in the U.S. presidential elections has the same prophetic value that the experience had for David when Absalom,[1] his son, and Achitophel, his advisor, attempted and rose up against David’s reign.[2]

David came to the throne not by his own efforts, he was anointed as king by the prophet Samuel by the very instruction of Jehovah-God;[3] his permanence on the throne obeyed the disposition that Jehovah-God had determined about him; then why did he flee?

David’s flight in the face of Absalom’s insurrection and Achitophel’s conspiracy, however, contradicted what Jehovah-God had said about David that his kingdom would be stable,[4] did Jehovah-God change His mind about David?

The writer of the book of Samuel adds a note to his story that helps us understand that this situation was provoked by Jehovah-God himself to establish teaching-instruction, mainly for the people, who did not know how to understand what Jehovah-God was establishing on earth through David,

And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the Lord had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the Lord might bring evil upon Absalom.

2 Samuel 17:14

Why did Jehovah-God allow this incident in David’s life? Both situations, Absalom’s rebellion along with Achitophel’s conspiracy, were permitted by Jehovah-God to teach him –to instruct the people of Israel– fundamentally, that Jehovah-God had chosen David, and to certify to them by the fact that He supported David, and that David would not be removed as king unless He so decided.

The vote count in the U.S. presidential election so far indicates that the winner of the presidential race is Democrat Joe Biden (264 vs. 214); for many Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election.

Donald Trump became president of the United States of America in 2016, contradicting every prediction in his favor. Donald Trump was not the favorite to win the presidency of the United States; Nevertheless, in the months following the recognition of his victory, many scholars of the prophetic Word, Jews and Gentiles, brought to light what the Lord had revealed to them concerning Trump, that he was the ‘Cyrus’[5] prophesied by Isaiah for whom the Lord would lead Israel to be known as ‘the top of the mountains’;[6] now Donald Trump appears in the vote count almost losing the presidential election, did Jehovah-God change His mind concerning Trump? Why has the Lord allowed this apparent defeat?

If for the moment things began to change and we saw the numbers of Trump’s electoral votes rise to the 270 electoral votes required to be certified as the winner of the 2020 U.S. election, and that’s what will happen, everyone, even the most skeptical, would see in it the realization of a true miracle, something never before seen in U.S. history… that is precisely what Jehovah-God wants to establish as teaching-instruction in the eyes of the whole world: God intervenes in the kingdoms of this world, and He decides to whom each nation will hand over: He puts kings in and takes them out; the teaching for his people is that He has come down to remove every stain and wrinkle from his people.

The teaching-instruction leads us to understand that there are many believers who do not live by biblical-spiritual principles, that there are many men and women of faith who judge things according to the patterns that the world establishes; and even more serious, that many so-called faithful and saints have opposed the Lord, in the same way that Absalom rose up against his father, ingenuously establishing platforms of darkness instead of building the Kingdom.

The Spirit is establishing judgment to bring order to the house of God. Do not be surprised by the ‘absurd’ things we will be exposed to, it is to cleanse the wheat from the tares.

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

Jonah 3:3-5

Most of us are familiar with the story of Jonah when he was commissioned by Jehovah-God to proclaim judgment on the great Nineveh because of the evil that its inhabitants had accumulated in all their actions,

Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me

Jonah 1:1-2

What calls the attention of history, is the number of days between the proclamation and the fulfillment of the fall of the judgment: Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

‘Forty’ has been in all the pages of the biblical history a number that has to do with judgment, precisely; of the best known stories we have as an example, the forty days of the flood,[1] forty years of pilgrimage through the desert because of the doubt imposed by ten of the twelve spies sent to recognize the land of Canaan,[2] and forty lashes of punishment to the one found to have committed a crime in some civil matter;[3] Ezekiel also presents a judgment on Egypt for forty years.[4]   In other cases, the number ‘forty’ appears related to a period of probation, such as the case of the forty days that Moses was on Mount Sinai in the presence of the Lord.[5]

<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">There are, on the other hand, other accounts that include the number ‘forty’ and appear to be related to the intervention of a person, such as the stories of the kings who reigned over Israel, or over Judah, and did so for a period of ‘forty’ years;<a href="#_ftn6">[6]</a> also are cited the forty days of Jesus on earth after he rose from the dead.<a href="#_ftn7">[7]</a>There are, on the other hand, other accounts that include the number ‘forty’ and appear to be related to the intervention of a person, such as the stories of the kings who reigned over Israel, or over Judah, and did so for a period of ‘forty’ years;[6] also are cited the forty days of Jesus on earth after he rose from the dead.[7]

In these cases the number ‘forty’ shows that the judgments do not necessarily have to do with the occurrence of calamities in the region, but they are also the warning of situations that are fighting spiritually in the air with respect to the future of the region; in that sense, ‘forty’ years of the reign of David, and even of Solomon, speak of spiritual battles of David and Solomon against satanic forces of apostasy, which already by the end of Solomon’s reign begin to exercise dominion over Israel. Jesus’ forty days on earth after His resurrection speak of the adjustment of situations according to the righteousness of the Kingdom. ‘Forty’ is the number of spiritual warfare against the demonic forces that are placed in the air of a region.

The case of the Philistine Goliath of Gath, who went out for forty days to challenge the army of Israel,[8] shows with the number ‘forty’ the violent and dangerous aspect of the spiritual warfare against the forces of darkness; of David not having defeated Goliath that day which completed the cycle of the ‘forty’ days, Israel would have lost authority over the Philistines.

There is still one more case we need to study, and it is the main purpose of our teaching, that of Jesus’ forty days of fasting,

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

Matthew 4:2 (Luke 4:2)

Both texts, Matthew’s and Luke’s, describe the spiritual warfare aspect of the ‘forty’ days of fasting;

being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

Luke 4:2

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

Matthew 4:3

With this first activity, Jesus began the process of re-conquering the inheritance that Adam had lost in Eden, the apostle Paul ‘named’ Jesus as “the last Adam”,

And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1st. Corinthians 15:45

The ‘forty’ days of fasting began the battle to overcome on the cross, after three and a half years, the one who had the empire of death, that is, Satan,

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Hebrews 2:14

Was it all about fasting for forty days? Is that what the struggle was all about? No, it was not reduced to fasting alone, it had to do it during the ‘forty’ days in countdown before the celebration of the day of Atonement,[9] Yom Kippur, celebrated on the tenth day of the seventh month (Tishrei).

The importance of the forty days of fasting consisted in the fact that this day was the day of Atonement, a day of proclaiming freedom and reconciliation to the people; it was also, above all, the day when Jesus would be initiating his saving ministry.

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 to preach the acceptable year of the Lord20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Luke 4:18-21

The ‘forty’ days of fasting marked the spiritual value of the work of God that was about to begin. The value of the ‘forty’ days of fasting marked the value of obedience to God’s Word as a requirement of reconciliation,

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

John 8:29

The apostle Paul emphasizes in his apostolic doctrine that the path of human reconciliation consists in obedience to the Word; disobedience brings about perdition,

For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

Romans 5:19

In conclusion, the ‘forty’ days of Jesus’ fasts were not only a protocol preamble to inaugurate a time of ministry, they were the basis of the supernatural operation of the Holy Spirit in the work and teaching of Jesus, which concluded with the establishment of the Truth that freed from the death sentence all who believed in Him.[10]  The ‘forty’ days of Jesus’ fasts overthrew the empire of evil and perversion by which man and woman are inclined to evil, overthrew the empire of death by which man and woman were condemned to eternal death, and overthrew the empire of falsehood by which man and woman hide themselves in hypocrisy and lying to live at the expense of darkness; they were truly days of spiritual warfare.

By way of application, we are about to repeat a story similar to the ‘forty’ days of Jesus’ fasting. Next Wednesday, September 23, we will enter into a forty-day countdown to the celebration of the date of the presidential elections of the United States of America on November 3, an event that affects not only the nation per se, but the future of many nations of the world.

These forty days before the date of the elections are crucial, the next four years of the government of the United States of America will be decided within those forty days; there is a spiritual push to try to tip the balance to either side; the advances —or setbacks— of what will happen in Israel during the next four years will be decided within those forty days, it is a crucial date.

What is at stake in this upcoming election is more important than what was on the table for decisions in past elections; it means moving forward on God’s agenda, or going backwards and establishing a government of confusion.

Donald Trump was chosen by God to establish upon Israel the fulfillment of the most powerful prophecy we have seen in modern times, the worldwide declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of the Kingdom,

But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.

Micah 4:1

And with the fulfillment of this prophecy, the time of Israel’s restoration began, a teaching originally presented within the doctrine of Jesus as the time of recollection and peace over Israel,

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Luke 21:24

This same teaching was established and ratified among the Gentiles, years later, within the teachings of the apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans,

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Romans 11:25

So, what is under discussion not only has to do with the United States of America, it is a matter of God’s prophetic agenda about Israel, and the consummation of Jerusalem as the capital of the Kingdom of God to establish from there that Jesus is Lord and Christ, because that is what is written in the prophecy of Isaiah,

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Isaiah 2:3

But not everything that is in projects of the Spirit of God has been completed, there is still more to do, and these next four years are decisive for that.

Therefore, these forty days of countdown before the date of the elections should not only serve us to draw conclusions based on the information we receive, but above all, to be alert to the instructions that God wants to give us, because although the agenda is prophetic and God is in control of it, some action of spiritual establishment could He give us to distort the operations of darkness.

Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews.
