This word carries a prophetic mandate. I must speak. For a number of years, I have prophesied what I believe Scripture affirms, that a last-days outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming that will be greater even than Pentecost. Such a thing, however, does not come to pass without opposition from the enemy of our soul.
Consequently, a twisting, lying spirit has been at work over our nation as a whole. Figuratively speaking, we call it “Leviathan”, the twisting serpent. I’m fairly certain that not everyone will agree that what I’m about to say is demonically inspired and energized, but every sense in my spirit tells me it’s true. A lifetime of experience in supernatural things has taught me the feel of demonic sickness. Leviathan has been working overtime in and through our culture and society, twisting words and perceptions to keep us divided and to fuel hate. If we think this will not also affect families, ministries and churches, or if we think we are immune to its influence, then we are being naive, even prideful, and we render ourselves vulnerable. None of us is that pure, Spirit-filled or strong. Jesus said, “Without Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5b). “Nothing” always means “nothing”.
