Powers and Principalities

 

tophatIn October of 2004, I was in an intense time of seeking God and was given a dream where I saw people in San Francisco starting a new political campaign. They were clamoring about making a banner and they had several hats they wanted to attach to the banner. One of the hats was a WW1 army helmet and one was a top hat like the old politicians used to wear, they wanted to split one of the hats and decided on the cutting the top hat in half. Afterwards they commented how good it looked after they cut it in half 

 

The WW1 helmet represents and old world warring power and the top hat represents a political movement. The top hat being cut in half means the political power was to be shared between the east and west coast but the warring power was kept in one piece.

Then I saw the political powers seated at a table in San Francisco facing across the entire span of the country as they were interviewing all the political leaders seated at a table in New York.   Both tables had all the highest ranking political, government, judicial and religious leaders represented. 
 The position which was being interviewed for was for the police chief.  They ask, “Who wants this power we are offering?” One by one the governor, mayor and police chief turned it down until it came to a man wearing a Pope’s hat (MITRE) and he said, “I want this power!” 

 

He was asked do you really want this power or do you just want to come out here and eat in our fine restaurants? He responded, “I want this position.” I was amazed that all the others present had turned this down but the religious leader wanted this evil power at all cost.

When I took one step in front of a window at the top of our landing, I was immediately being sucked in by the powerful force of incredible evil. It sounded like a raging jet engine and it tried to pull me into its evil grasp.  I felt the sting of thousands of needle-like objects hitting my skin as I cried out to Jesus with all my strength! Then the jet engine revved up even harder,  I couldn’t get free from it and began to lose my strength to even speak.

Inside of my being I was crying out “Jesus, Jesus” and prayed in the Spirit over and over again yet there was no one to help me. I felt strength leaving my body and I knew if it did, I would be consumed by this evil power. Suddenly, I was thrown back into my bed with a bounce by the Spirit, I was startled yet glad to be free from that evil force. I looked at the clock and it was 3:16 AM, I began to quote John 3:16 over and over again.

If this had not have been a God-given experience, I would have to classify it as a horrible nightmare but with God I know I’m safe and He will not do anything to harm me. I told my wife, “You never know when you lay down at night what the Spirit of the Lord has for you but you can rest in knowing that He is Sovereign and we can trust Him always.”

city hallIn 2004, Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco gained national attention in 2004 when he directed the city clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and later that same year the California Supreme Court voided them. As recent as a few months ago, the California Supreme Court struck down the ban on gay marriages and the mayor quoted from the front of City Hall as a gay couple was married on June 16 of this year saying, “As California goes, so goes the nation!” Now the chant by many gay citizens in the streets of California is, “In all 50 states!”

Even before the official date of June 16, 2008, the governor of New York said that New York would honor the gay marriages in California. Truly they have been sucked into the power of this principality.

California has been the leader to this nation in trends, styles, laws, political issues, market place, media, movies, fashion and much more for many years and all of it is due to the principality, which rules over the region and wants to gain influences in all of America.

Now you know why!

Please don’t think I’m gay bashing by any means, I promise you I am not and never will. I am not talking about gay issues here at all but the result of the evil spiritual influences that all mankind have been up against and how they work to gain influences at the highest level of our governments just as they have always ruled this world since the fall of Adam.

Pray for our nation, pray for our leaders, pray that the church will wake up and come out from among the influence of evil and do as the word says in Rev. 18:4 “I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues.”

See scripture references:

Rom 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Eph. 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. v. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Col. 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 2:15 [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Eph. 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
