We’ve recently seen in the media the words, “The Obama Effect.” It describes an almost supernatural, charismatic influence that affects the masses. After Governor Palin’s speech at the RNC, the news began to speak of “The Palin Effect.” An explosion of favor came upon the governor of Alaska, and the nation was swept up into it. It is my conviction that this was nothing short of a supernatural promotion from heaven.
Like “Esther,” which means “star,” Palin became in a moment what the media described as “the GOP’s rising star.” In the days of Deborah’s war, “the stars fought from heaven,” describing the angelic influence over the battle. I believe that in this election, we are facing a spiritual battle that can only be won by the uplifting of hands in prayer. In the days of Moses, Joshua won a battle on the ground while Moses, Aaron and Herr lifted their hands in prayer on a hill far above the natural field of battle. As long as hands were lifted up, the battle went to Joshua, but when hands came down, spiritual influence shifted to the enemy.
I exhort us, therefore, to lift up hands in prayer over these elections and in particular over Governor Palin who is being raged against from every side. If God is for her and the church prays, the ideology of life for the unborn fueled by the Palin Effect (Esther) will prevail over the ideology of abortion fueled by the Obama Effect (Haman).
Read the following dream from the man that has been the key prophetic voice in my life. We must pray for the next two days continuously that the debate tomorrow night may be a staging ground for favor and the supernatural promotion of another beauty queen like Esther. May the stars fight from heaven as we pray!
I had a very short dream last night, yet it is an exhortation to pray for the vice presidential debate this Thursday evening.
In the dream, I was reading Friday’s paper (the day after the debate). There were two papers. One said, “Palin hits a home run,” while the second said, “Palin strikes out.”
As I was looking at those two papers, I found myself back at the debate and saw the darkness and powers surrounding the event. Great darkness had been assigned to the debate, and the church was not seeing it nor taking it soberly.
I know that as much as preparation and so forth is necessary to come equipped for this debate, the victory of this debate will be determined by the intercessors. This is not so much about Sarah Palin being ready; this is about darkness and power influencing the nation. If we come to watch Thursday’s debate, we lose; if we come into agreement with God and stand against this darkness, Palin is victorious.
