Day One

After a wonderful time of very anointed worship, we had a really good discussion.

Discussion

Lion on Central Square

Lion on central square

One person had a vision of a lion statue laying down with its head up. The statue had been neglected. The heraldic symbol of Finland is a lion. Another person pointed out that the Central Square has a lion statue. It is inside the former parliament building, which had been abandoned as a meeting place because of the rumor of bad decisions being made there. The building is covered with Egyptian symbols, which is Freemason. The building is currently under renovation until 2017, and even the front steps had been removed and replaced.

There is a flag of the lamb at the cathedral, where they have the 12 apostles on the roof. The cathedral is Lutheran, and the Lutheran church of Finland has made some very bad decisions and compromises.

Isaiah 32:1-4 & 16-20 was proclaimed for Finland and its leaders:

Behold, a king will reign righteously and princes will rule justly. Each will be like a refuge from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry country, like the shade of a huge rock in a parched land. Then the eyes of those who see will not be blinded, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The mind of the hasty will discern the truth, and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly.

Then justice will dwell in the wilderness and righteousness will abide in the fertile field. And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. Then my people will live in a peaceful habitation, and in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places; and it will hail when the forest comes down, and the city will be utterly laid low. How blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters, who let out freely the ox and the donkey.

Helsinki was founded by a Swedish ruler who forced the people to move here. The first capital was Turku. After the Turku fire, the Russians made Helsinki the capital.

In the first church of Helsinki there was a grave. Now the church is in ruins, but the grave is decorated, its letters gilded. This is also Freemason witchcraft.

Isaiah 28:14-19

And Amos 3:7-8 for the lion of Finland, which seems to be sleeping. A counterfeit lion does injustice.

Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared—who will not fear? The Sovereign Lord has spoken—who can but prophesy?

There are 2 statues to the Russian rulers, Alexander I and Alexander II, both of whom were considered to be good rulers.

There is a statue of a lady wearing a bearskin in front of a lion at the Justice Palace.

There is a statue of Marie (the same person as Mariehamn) at the Market Square with a 2-headed eagle that had recently been gilded. This forms a leyline with the Justice Palace.

In current events, Russia is very much a threat. It used to be that Finnish people would laugh if you said that Russia is a threat, but now they understand it to be true.

Also in current events, the Foreign Minister (a Christian) participated in the Jesus March and spoke at the event about the importance of prayer. The PM is also a Christian.

Prayer Walking

Obelisk in front of Swedish embassy

Obelisk in front of Swedish embassy

At the Swedish Embassy there is the double-headed eagle atop an obelisk. This creates a leyline with the statue of the woman in a bearskin (Russian and Freemason witchcraft influences). So we prayed to cut off the influence of both and to cut all division. We prayed to cut off the Swedish influence, too. We prayed for Finland to shake off outside influences and to embrace change.

We prayed for Finland’s true identity, based on Daniel 1:8:

Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way.

Judges 7:20 was proclaimed, too:

. . . they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”

As we prayed this, one teammate saw a sword come down and divide the 2-headed eagle in 2.

We prayed that Finland would resist the spirit of confusion, and resist transgressions against its borders. Finland has been too tolerant in the past, and needs to be firm and to set good boundaries.

We also prayed to reveal any unhealthy covenants as the one between Joshua and the Gibeonites (Joshua 9). And that Finland would not reveal all its treasures to outsiders as Hezekiah did (2 Kings 20) because Finland has been taken with cunning.

One interesting thing about the Finns was revealed to us by a local. She said that Finns hate to be separated from the group. In fact, they have a saying: “Finland will never act alone.” Finland has been waiting to see how Sweden decides about NATO.

Then we walked to the House of the Estates, which had been the original parliament building and was abandoned due to rumors that bad decisions are made in it. The House of the Estates had been established under Russian rule. We prayed for right things in Finland, and that foreigners will no longer decide Finland’s future. Finland will decide things for themselves, declaring that Psalm 95:10 will no longer be true of Finland:

For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known My ways.”

One teammate had a vision of a pair of hands that were somehow crossed or confused. So we prayed against confusion.

The lion and the other lady wearing bearskin are inside, but the building was locked, so we couldn’t get in to see the statue.

As we were praying into Finnish identity, there was a gay couple sitting on a bench nearby, caressing continually while we prayed. Then they got up and walked away and another couple of lovers took their place.

We proclaimed courage to the government leaders and freedom to Finland. We prayed that the Finnish people would be liberated from the Russian, Swedish, and Freemason framework box. We proclaimed forgiveness and release for Russia and Sweden. We blessed Russia and Sweden, and prayed to make Finland a blessing to these countries—in a right way. And that God’s Justice and Righteousness will rule (this last prayed in Finnish).

We prayed, proclaiming cleansing and purification for the building and for the Finnish government—all demons and evil spirits out!

We prayed for Finnish people to find the boldness to deal with the past, no matter how “not nice” they may consider it. We prayed for the bearskin to fall off the Finnish lion, and for holy boldness. We countered the covenant with death and lies, and prayed that all lies will be revealed. We prayed for discernment for recognizing half lies, and for God’s wisdom and discernment to know how to act against lies. We prayed for the desire to change, to embrace change, and for clear explanations.

One teammate had a vision of a new constitution that is purely Finnish and written by Finns.

We declared that the battle of the Finnish heart will be won—Finished! And that Finland will embrace its identity. The Lion of Judah will rise up here. We prayed according to Isaiah 57:9-10, that Finland will stop going to foreign kings:

You sent your ambassadors far away; you descended to the very realm of the dead! You wearied yourself by such going about.

Finally, we prayed to break all the bad rumors and bad decisions and bad agreements here. We prayed that every decision will be good and right, with the good of Finland in mind, Isaiah 28:14-22:

Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, O scoffers, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we have made a pact. The overwhelming scourge will not reach us when it passes by, for we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.” Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed. “I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the level; then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies and the waters will overflow the secret place. “Your covenant with death will be canceled, and your pact with Sheol will not stand; When the overwhelming scourge passes through, then you become its trampling place. “As often as it passes through, it will seize you; for morning after morning it will pass through, anytime during the day or night, and it will be sheer terror to understand what it means.” The bed is too short on which to stretch out, and the blanket is too small to wrap oneself in. For the Lord will rise up as at Mount Perazim, He will be stirred up as in the valley of Gibeon, to do His task, His unusual task, and to work His work, His extraordinary work. And now do not carry on as scoffers, or your fetters will be made stronger; For I have heard from the Lord God of hosts of decisive destruction on all the earth.

Praying in front of the large Lutheran church

Praying in front of the large Lutheran church

Then we walked to the Lutheran Cathedral. The church should have led Finland in standing up for what is right, and in not compromising with Russia and Sweden. Instead, the church led Finland into self pity. Now the church needs to lead Finland in taking their identity again.

One local teammate told us that the water pipe had broken in the church and the water flooded out the front door and down the stairs. Water speaks of purification.

The Finnish teammates prayed and confessed and repented for the fear of man, self pity, and blaming their leaders. We proclaimed 2 Timothy 2:24-26 for the church leaders:

The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do His will.

We thanked God for the scandal that woke up the church, and said that the early church foundations must be dug up, especially the pharisaical: rituals, appearance, legalism, etc. We prayed for new wine to be poured into the church: pour Your Spirit on the church! And we prayed to break every Masonic tie with the church.

Then we walked back to the leylines crossing and declared Isaiah 28:20:

The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you.

And read Psalm 2:

We proclaimed that fear of the Lord is coming upon all the unrighteous people that have made unrighteous pacts. We broke the power of the leylines and declared Isaiah 58:12:

Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.

Day Two

Discussion

The Parliament Building (currently under extensive renovations) will reopen in time for the 100 year Jubilee. They will meet in the newly renovated building in 2017. We proclaimed Jeremiah 31:2-6:

Thus says the Lord, “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness—Israel, when it went to find its rest.” The Lord appeared to him from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. “Again I will build you and you will be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! Again you will take up your tambourines, and go forth to the dances of the merrymakers. “Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; The planters will plant and will enjoy them. “For there will be a day when watchmen on the hills of Ephraim call out, ‘Arise, and let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.’”

Proclamations for Finland to be in Finnish and Swedish at the Parliament building. Praying for a new building, like the original, without any outside influences. Finnish laws for Finnish people.

Tomorrow Henning will preach here at the Andreaskyrkian on the identity of Finland, the crown jewel, using Zacharias 9:16:

The Lord their God will save His people on that day as a shepherd saves his flock. They will sparkle in His land like jewels in a crown.

Finnish people are peacemakers. They hosted the first European peace conference in the1970’s.

One teammate observed that on the map, Helsinki looks like a dove that has been shot by a shotgun. Then we made a list of proclamations to make at Parliament:

Revelation19:11-16

Malachi 3:18 & 4:2-6

Song of Songs 2:13-14 –

Micah 3:5-7 –

Isaiah 9:2-7

Proverbs 8:22-31

Proverbs 22:28Do not move an ancient boundary stone set up by your ancestors.

Revelation 2:1-7

Ephesians 3:14-21

Matthew 7:20 & 24-27

1 Peter 2:4-8

Isaiah 28:16

Finland’s real name (what they call themselves) is Suomi. Finland is what foreigners call them. Finland has a lion’s heart. So we prayed and prophesied over each Finnish teammate. One teammate anointed them.

Prayer Walking

Team at parliament with covering in the back

Team at parliament with covering in the back

At the Parliament building, we could see that the whole thing is under fabric covering. One local teammate told us that renovations will cost more than expected—maybe even double. They also said that there were certain dangers for the construction workers. We proclaimed Psalm 91 for the protection of Parliament and Finland under the shadow of God’s wings, and that beauty will be revealed when the scaffolding is removed:

Psalm 91

Jesus, the Alpha and the Omega, is the only One strong enough to really bring about the needed changes.

Prayers and proclamations in Finnish:

Thank you to God for the believers in Parliament, Matthew 7:24-27 (see above).

Prayers to raise up prayer for leaders and intercessors to stand in the gap for Finland.

1 Peter 2:4-8 (see above).

Forgiveness for past unjust decisions here, especially with regard to Israel.

Psalm 122:6-9 (in Swedish) – Pray for the peace of [Finland]: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your prosperity.

Bless Finland with leaders who really care for the flock: steadfast and righteous shepherds. Isaiah 32:1-6

Proverbs 22:28

Prayer that now that the stairs are gone, they will be returned cleansed and like new.

Isaiah 52:1-2 that gender equal marriage be annulled—seems impossible, but all is possible with God: Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

Isaiah 60:1-4

Ephesians 3:14-21

Prayer that the church will take its place as leader of the nation. Restore prayer for government in the church.

1 Timothy 1:1-2 (in Swedish):

Isaiah 62 for the identity of Finland (in Finnish): For [Finland’s] sake………

Jeremiah 31:2-6 (personalized to Finland).

We also prayed that they would give space inside, one room in the Parliament building for a team of intercessors.

Isaiah 32:1-6

Then we walked to the back of the building, where there was a metal construction tunnel that formed the temporary entrance to the building.

Psalm 40 to draw Parliament and the government out of the miry clay:

And proclaimed Isaiah 60:

Malachi 3:18 & 4:2-6.

Then the Finnish teammates sang a prophetic song for Finland, ending with a joyous shout.

We ended the trip with a lovely dinner prepared by a Finnish teammate.

May 182016
 

Day One

We arrived in Mariehamn in the morning and disembarked. We were immediately met by 2 unexpected difficulties: the possibility that one teammate might have to cut his trip short because of difficulties at home, and the other was that the pastor couldn’t meet with us because he had to get his blood tested. So we began in worship, then launched right into prayer for both of these people and issues.

One of the group is a missionary, called to Åland, so we prayed for him, and one person saw a vision of the missionary planting a sword into the ground. We believed this to mean that God is establishing him and his family here by His Word. Psalm 118:15-17 was proclaimed for him:

Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.

Another person saw God’s glory come streaming in, unstoppable.

The Discussion

Shamanism, witchcraft, and yoga are issues in the Åland islands. The locals were not aware of any Nordic gods being worshiped, but a look at the tourist shops will reveal it because they will probably have figurines. So we proclaimed Matthew 13:43:

Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

Mariehamn was so named by Czar Alexander II for his wife. He was said to be a good czar. All of Finland (Åland included) was under Russian rule since 1917. Putin has a hunting cabin in Åland, but they say that he’s never been here. Åland is demilitarized, and Finland is not in NATO, being neutral.

Eighty different native tongues are spoken in Åland, most in Mariehamn. The island group enjoys a special deal with the EU for tax-free shopping. There is a saying: “Åland is the trigger to the pistol aimed at the heart of Sweden.”

Because we couldn’t meet with the pastor, who was going to give us a brief spiritual history of Åland, we couldn’t really do much of anything at the church. And we couldn’t check into our hostels until the afternoon. So we agreed that the best thing would be to go to the town history museum to teach ourselves something of the history. So we decided to walk around town, blessing the town and enjoying it (as in Jeremiah 29).

Prayer Walking

So we walked to the history museum, but it is closed for renovations until August. On the way, we had seen and noticed a ley line between the city hall and the mariner’s school. And this being a seafaring place, we decided that we could probably get the pertinent history at the Seafaring Museum.

So we went to the Seafaring Museum and walked through, learning something of the maritime history of Åland. Then we broke for lunch and to check into our hostels.

Addressing the Church

That night, Henning spoke to the church about Operation Capitals of Europe and introduced the team.

Day Two

We enjoyed a time of glorious worship, during which we were encouraged to praise God in our native languages. Afterward, we prayed to release an anointing of beauty, glory, and joy upon one of the worship leaders of the church who will bring God’s glory and beauty.

The Discussion

One person had dreamed of a resistant door, but with persistence it opened. This encouraged the pastor, who said that he had long been praying and battling with the “resistant door here in Åland. He has had this burden for Åland since 1982 when he fell out of bed one night and God told him to go hear Reinhardt Bonke speak. The resistant door was said to be the influence of Freemasonry witchcraft.

One local believer said that she was going to the Russian church meeting and asked for prayer. We prayed for her, and her appointment to go to the Russian church suddenly was canceled.

Prayer Walking

Praying in front of Town Hall

Praying in front of Town Hall

First we walked to the City Hall, which was noted to be the highest point in the eastern side of the city. We prayed and declared Psalm 24 in English and in Swedish:

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for He founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in His Holy Place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face, God of Jacob. Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in. Who is He, this King of Glory? The Lord Almighty—He is the King of Glory.

Then we declared Ezekiel 11:22-25, followed by 3 blasts on the shofar:

Then the cherubim, with the wheels beside them, spread their wings, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them. The glory of the Lord went up from within the city and stopped above the mountain east of it. The Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the exiles in Babylonia in the vision given by the Spirit of God. Then the vision I had seen went up from me, and I told the exiles everything the Lord had shown me.

Finally we went around the building, placing a stone at each of its 4 corners while declaring Isaiah 28:16

So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.

In front of statue of Mary

In front of statue of Mary

At the statue of Marie, for whom the city was named, it was noted that Russia had put the statue there on the 200th anniversary of Mariehamn, and that no other nations were represented at the celebration, only Russia.

We declared Mark 11:22-24:

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

And all the time one person had her hand firmly gripping the statue’s fan. At that declaration from Mark, she felt the statue shift violently as though dropping several inches.

After more prayers at the statue the shofar was blown and Isaiah 47:2-3 was declared:

Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams. Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered.

Then we walked to the Parliament building where we prayed and declared Isaiah 52:1-2; 9:6; and 11:1-5:

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—and He will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes, or decide by what He hears with His ears; but with righteousness He will judge the needy, with justice He will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth; with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be His belt and faithfulness the sash around His waist.

The Holy Spirit led one person to walk around the circle of flagpoles in a clockwise manner. There were 12 flagpoles, and as she walked, she felt like the Lord was saying that time is up for the unrighteous. Just as she got to the last flagpole, the shofar was blasted (none of which was planned in advance).

The architectural influence of Freemasonry was noted in the grounds of the government buildings as we walked to the entrance of the underground parking garage. There, under the government buildings we placed a stone in the foundation, declaring it a new cornerstone, and the shofar was blasted 3 times.

Back above ground again, we noted a fountain and a series of square gates. We prayed and worshiped at the fountain, then walked through the gates praying and worshiping in tongues.

We declared Jeremiah 2:13; Proverbs 3:5-6; and Genesis 22:18, to take the gates of the enemy:

My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken Me, the Spring of Living Water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed Me.

Then there was a final, triumphant shofar blast.

Then we walked to the office building where the president has his offices. It was noted that the president is not a Christian, but whenever he tries to bring in good reforms he meets with much resistance. We prayed to break all Freemasonry witchcraft off him, that he could be released from all spells and curses.

We noted that it is God who places people in office, so we prayed, blessing the president and declaring that those who dig a trip will fall into it.

We also prayed that the president would open the nation to allow the Jews to return to Israel. He is a key man who can make connections with rabbis and Russian Jews here in Åland. He must stand up to “Pharaoh” (evil Masonic death cult) for life and resurrection. Then the shofar was blown 3 times for healing.

May 182016
 

Day One

We began the day with introductions, followed by a time of worship. Afterwards our host gave us a brief history of the church in Sweden, which started from the ninth century, when a German bishop introduced the Catholic faith. About 500 years later the Uppsala Church Counsel started the Lutheran Church in Sweden, which was eventually embraced by King Gustavus. The king outlawed Catholicism. Thus began an ebb and flow of faith, legalism, secularism, and revival through the centuries. The most notable revival was the Great 40 Year Revival of 1906, coinciding with Azuza Street. Even the royal family became involved. But still the pattern of ebb and flow continued. The most recent revival was the Jesus Movement of the 1970’s and New Life in the 1980’s. Since then the church history of Sweden has been decline, marked only by new church plants by immigrants. Missions work has been the thing to save the Uppsala church from fading into insignificance.

The discussion:

The vision for Stockholm’s spiritual state was a thick grayness in the atmosphere over Stockholm, and an understanding that this spiritual grayness speaks of the tired heart of Stockholm, Isaiah 52:1-2:

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

One of our hosts noted the Swedish tendency to embrace only one point of view at a time. This speaks of resistance to change or other points of view, which is no doubt what led to the massacre of the nobles and bishops who were progressives with an opposing opinion. This was confirmation that the place of that slaughter, Stortorget, in the heart of the old city. In fact, the island that the old city is on is shaped like a heart. Since Sweden’s heart is tired, we decided to go and concentrate on praying there.

The flood of refugees and the many rapes perpetrated against Swedish women has caused public opinion to wildly swing from welcoming to closing their borders. It was important that we pray into that “one opinion” thing of Sweden. The verse best describing Sweden is Judges 21:25:

In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.

This speaks of lawlessness. In fact, it was pointed out that one law to be discussed is legalizing marriage with the corpse of one’s beloved: necrophilia. There is a death culture and a death fascination here in Sweden. One of the past kings had a fascination with Egypt, so there is an Egyptian museum full of mummies. Swedish midwives have caused a stir by not cooperating in abortions.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

In Sweden’s secular, humanistic society, there seems to be a tolerance of everything but the truth. When truth is spoken, especially from the Bible, it is labeled as intolerance. Ironically, the most intolerant people are the ones that scream about intolerance.

One person pointed out that Sweden has the most single occupant households. Family is oppressed, while the insemination of single women has become legalized. The attitude is one of not needing fathers. Contradictory law allows both parents to stay home with a newborn.

Schools allow mobile phones in school, which causes problems concentrating. Children are not well-connected with their parents. Freemasonry is behind all these laws.

Someone observed that humanism is subtly evil, and perhaps more so because it doesn’t appear to be evil.

As the discussion ended, we prayed and prophesied for two of our hosts: one, a leader representing the Lutheran (state) Church, and the other, a leader representing the Free Church. The Lutheran leader was heading out for an appointment with a Catholic bishop about the Swedish Prayer Breakfast. So we prayed and blessed his meeting. He would join us for prayers later.

Prayer Walking

We started at Stortorget, in the heart of the old city, where the nobles and bishops of opposing opinion were slaughtered, and we prayed to wake the heart of Stockholm. Psalm 40:1-4:

I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him. Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.

And Psalm 37:3-7

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.

Isaiah 52:1-2 to call forth the identity of Swedes: strength, entrepreneurship, music, missionary spirit generosity, art, inventiveness, creativity, design, beauty with functionality, devotion, and discernment:

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

We prayed to open revival wells, there at the original city well and prophesied to the well that living water should come forth, open the wells of true faith and missionary spirit. Then we had communion.

Praying in front of the King's Palace

Praying in front of the King’s Palace

Then we walked to the King’s Palace. It was noted that the present king had said no when the Freemasons asked him to be their Grand Master. This year the king turned 70—in this Jubilee year, the king had his own jubilee.

There we also prayed against the culture of death and broke the Freemason pact with death. We proclaimed Psalm 92:14-15 for the king, saying:

May he will still bear fruit in old age, he will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in Him.”

And that he would be a servant leader, full of the Holy Spirit as in Acts 6:1-6. We also prayed Psalm 90:10 for the king, that:

[His] days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if [his] strength endures.

And we proclaimed long life to the king.

Then we walked to a building, built by the Freemasons, then occupied by the army, which is now the courts building for the Justice Palace. We prayed and proclaimed Nahum 2:2:

The Lord will restore the splendor of [Sweden] like the splendor of Israel, though destroyers have laid them waste and have ruined their vines.

And also Psalm 37:5-6:

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

One of our hosts pointed out that the first book in Sweden had been printed right there at the monastery. It was a book about right and wrong. On this day celebrating free speech and freedom of the press, we said a prayer that such freedoms will continue, and will be equally applied to Christians as well as to others.

Then we walked around the whole island of the old city, which is shaped like a heart, proclaiming revival to the tired heart of Stockholm. We did CPR: Christian Resuscitation Proclamations.

Day Two

As observed before, today marked the 250th anniversary of Free Speech and Freedom of the Press. So after a time of really glorious and joyful worship and prayer, believing that the spiritual grayness seen over Stockholm would be broken by joyful worship.

One person saw a vision in which eagles were circling over the Parliament. One eagle swooped down and caught up a snake. He said that there are 5 people in the government that are poisonous like a snake. Two will soon be removed, and the other 3 will be neutralized. Then he saw God’s scepter come down like a hammer.

Answer of prayer :The following week one person in the government and one the parliament resigned from their position.

As we prayed and prophesied, one person mentioned Mary’s Magnificat, found in chapter 1 of Luke’s Gospel:

My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has been mindful of the humble state of His servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me—Holy is His Name. His mercy extends to those who fear Him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with His arm; He has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped His servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as He promised our ancestors.

And it was declared that this is only the beginning of what God will do in Sweden. God is rebuking the unclean spirits in Parliament as in Mark 1:23-28, and they will come out with a loud cry:

Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, “What do You want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!”

“Be quiet!” said Jesus sternly. “Come out of him!” The impure spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek. The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey Him.” News about Him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

God will raise up City Fathers, replacing the poisonous ones with men that have a father’s heart in the government. If the church praises joyfully, it can help birth the new beginning. The church needs to rejoice prophetically. The Christians of Sweden need to have God’s heart to pray for the city. This was explained to us as a confusing and dramatic time in Swedish government.

Prayer Walking

Gustav Adolfs Torg square

Gustav Adolfs Torg square

We started our prayer walking at Gustav Adolfs Torg square where there had been an uprising concerning free speech. It was in this square that 144 farmers were massacred by the army on their way to Parliament. The scandal caused by this massacre actually convinced the Parliament to establish free speech and freedom of the press. And the number 144 is interesting because it is 12 x 12 or 122. Twelve, being the Biblical number of government. We prayed, asking for freedom and openness, and that there would be a Nineveh style repentance, as in Jonah 3:6-10:

When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish.”

When God saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, He relented and did not bring on them the destruction He had threatened.

The Truth will set Sweden free, as in Isaiah 52:1-2:

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

Stockholm Parliament

Stockholm Parliament

Also Psalm 2:10-11:

Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate His rule with trembling.

One person saw a volcano of righteousness erupting from the parliamentary prayer room. There will be a new Viking Spirit, not one of pillage, plunder, rape, and robbery; but of righteousness, justice, peace, and boldness to speak God’s Truth in love. Let the leaders say, as David said in 2 Samuel 24:17:

“[We] have sinned; [we], the shepherd[s], have done wrong. These are but sheep. What have they done? Let Your hand fall on [us] and [our] famil[ies].”

And may it be as in Isaiah 11:2:

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on [them]—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord.

That there will also be a spirit of ministry to serve one another and the people of Sweden with true servant leadership.
