Greetings Dear Friends,
Happy Freedom Day! (I apologize in advance for a lengthy report.)
An eagle is one of the most majestic birds to watch. As America’s national bird, it represents both freedom and liberty. However, it didn’t come into being without adversity. During the governmental approval process of accepting the eagle as the national bird, some saw the eagle as an emblem of power and bravery, whereas others viewed this bird to be symbolic of bad moral character and cowardice.
Like the eagle, some view the Word of God as cowardly or weak, while to others, it is alive and active; a Living Hope, peace and freedom. Well, the 4th of July is a declaration of freedom throughout the land. Let us set our hearts on Jesus - the Son, the WORD, and choose freedom; not as a bird watcher, but as a Word watcher! “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed,” (John 8:37 / NASV); “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,” (John 1:14a / NASV). “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him,” (2 Chronicles 16:9a /NIV). Prayer Warriors, now is the time to call forth America’s heart to be fully committed to Jesus. She is about to celebrate another year of independence, but America is not walking in Freedom. “We - You and I” are the “We the People” of this great nation. Take one look or listen around and it is easy to conclude America is suffering from a heart condition. But there is a remedy: “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
America is about to turn 244 years old on this July 4th, 2020. Look at those 4’s! The Lord has been speaking to Nancy about the number 4: “4 for a door”. Dear ‘People’, we have a door to go through on behalf of America, and on behalf of our religious freedom. The following headline from The Daily Signal should be very alarming to all Christians: “The Media Won’t Say It, but Christians Are the No. 1 Persecuted Group Worldwide,” (by Paul Coleman, May 15, 2019). If you haven't noticed, there is a concerted effort / agenda to breakdown the very motto of America: “In God We Trust”; but the world’s communication systems will not broadcast that memo. “We the People” of the Lord must not be detoured by a worldly perspective, we must stand firm on the Word of God. In fact, the Lord spoke to Nancy (6/29) and said there is a map of the world with many highways representing TRUTH; many oneway lanes. Lanes of: hope, strength, wisdom, trust, strategy, redemption, promise, understanding, etc. Warning: Watch out for the detours! They are fake news; Don’t take that route!
Take heed to the Word. Be “Word Watchers!” After all, Jesus said, “It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every WORD that comes from the mouth of God,” (Matt. 4:4 / NIV)… more 4’s for a door. America is strong because her very beginning roots were built upon Jesus Christ. America’s forefathers prayed and sought the Lord for direction and protection for this land of the free. “We the People” relied on the Lord. In 2 Chronicles 16:7-9, Hanani, the seer, delivered a message from the Lord to King Asa. Hanani lays it out something like this: ‘Hey dude, remember when you relied on the Lord? He delivered you from your enemies! How great was that! The Lord delivered the enemies right into your hands! Awesome! You started so strong; Great beginning roots … leaning on the Lord. But now? Now, King Asa, you looked to another king … ‘relied on government’ instead of calling upon the Lord your God for help… hate to say it, but not too wise!’ During the years of King Asa’s early reign his heart was fully committed to the Lord and he did capture the Lord’s gaze throughout the earth. He started strong, but unfortunately, in the end these are the words he heard from the Hanani: “You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war,” (2 Chronicles 16:9b / NIV). America, we are beseeching Heaven to rain down those prayers of our early years. We need to look to You, Lord! PTH Friends, I want you to know, you are prayed for. We have all had to be a little creative as to how to stay connected and ‘assemble’ together for God’s purposes. We have gotten feedback from some saying they enjoyed the Bible reading schedules for May and June. And now, I hear people asking, “What is coming in July?” Well, let me say this: A Happy Congratulations to all you graduates! You have advanced to a new level! A place where much of the learning is gained by personal study and research. However, although the next direction may not be so ‘scripted,’ it will still be very strategic, and I will send out periodic targets and updates. As mentioned earlier; 4 for a door, these next 4 months are critical for us and for America. Having said that, I want to share with you some updates, insights, prayer targets and strategies that the Lord has been showing Nancy and me over the last several months.
I. Restoring and Redeeming:
The Lord told Nancy to draw a straight line and then said He was making the crooked paths straight (individually, and for America).
II. PTH Ministry: Dates to mark on your calendar:
A) July 16-23: Washington DC Prayer assignment (more details below)
B) July 23- Aug. 31: Georgia / South Carolina: ); see website for details: https://www.pointtohope.org/event-calendar.html

D) October: Ohio ministry and conference (details TBA)
E) November 3, 2020 / Tuesday: ELECTION DAY- VOTE … a privilege for “We the People” to open wide our mouths and speak God’s wisdom with our vote “In God We Trust”.
A) The Lord gave Nancy a specific word for Israel. He said pray for Israel. It will look bad at first, but get ready; Israel get ready – new beginnings. Many have tried to help Israel but they have chipped away at her peace. Don’t give it away; don’t give up your land. I will protect it! Repent, and I will make the crooked places straight.
IV. Point To Hope: Communication / Technology
A) Specific issue – glitches with the newsletter posts transmitting through to email subscribers. Many have signed up repeatedly, but the posts are still not transmitting to their emails. Please pray for revelation / wisdom about this issue, and / or direction.
B) Please forward newscasts to others whom may be interested.
V. Washington DC:
A) PTH Countries Prayer Mandate (DC Embassies): Nancy and I will be revisiting various countries’ embassies in DC to pray. There are approximately 68 countries left on the list to complete for the prayer mandate from the Lord (repenting for the 21 sins). Although we have already been to all of the available embassies in DC, some of the remaining countries may or may not allow access to the actual land due to VISAs, safety, etc. However, we shall see what the Lord has to say when we stand on the land of the counties (embassies) in DC. Please pray for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and also for the heart of the land to soften to receive the Light. The majority of the 68 countries are middle eastern countries.
VI. America / Governmental Prayer Strategy & Targets:
A) Call forth Repentance and Mercy! (James 2:13b; Mercy triumphs over judgment.)
B) Governmental Buildings: White House, Capitol Building, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, FBI, Treasury Building, etc.
C) Binding and Loosing: Identify the stronghold, bind it and pray the opposite. EX: Bind “lawlessness” … Loose “God’s order”; Bind “rebellion” … Loose “yielding to the Lord”, etc. (use scripture).
D) Expose enemy’s plans over America. Demand repayment 7 fold (Prov. 6:31).
E) Tear down high places (spiritually) and rededicate to Jesus. Specifically pray for these high places to be exposed / identified.
F) The Election Process / Fair & Accurate: God hates dishonest scales (Prov. 11:1 & 20:23).
VII. Prophetic Words the Lord gave Nancy:
A) Revealing a Network: the ‘Net” being the TRUTH: catching liars, leakers, and sneakers. Expose, expose, expose … REPENT!
B) Lift the Name of Jesus!
C) A Quiver full of arrows: the Lord is going to give us arrows (prayers), to hit the bullseye of the enemy’s schemes over America.
Many people are going through some very difficult times. However, please be encouraged knowing that the Lord is with you (Deu. 31:6). He will never leave you nor forsake you! (Heb. 13:5). If God is on your side, who can be against you? (Rom. 8:31). Lift the name of Jesus high and try not to let your focus be on circumstances that wage war against your flesh, mind, and emotions. Pull down the truth about who you are in Christ and trust in Him. Let your heart be circumcised – foreskin is the world! What is around you? Remember, your struggle is not flesh and blood (Eph. 6:12). Walk by the Spirit! I love how it says it in John 6:63a (ESV), “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all.” Become a passionate Word Watcher!
If you are feeling heat from the fire, pressed in, squeezed, cornered, defeated, etc., lift up a shout of praise and confuse the enemy. The Lord is in the business of refining His bride and getting all the wrinkles out … it is a good thing: Hurts Good!
On behalf of PTH, thank you and bless you!
