A strategic Esther call to 44 days of prayer and fasting for the rising threat from Iran towards Israel & the nations!
In November last year, the Lord began to speak to me during a time of prayer at HOPE in which we were watching over Iran and the growing crisis between Iran, Israel and the nations.
On the 8th of November as I was praying for Iran, I received a vision in which I saw a huge plumbline descending over Iran’s land. As the plumbline touched the land, an earthquake struck. So I began to pray and declare that the Lord will shake everything that can be shaken, specially the evil systems in the Iranian government, so that the unshakable can remain and His kingdom will advance in mighty ways.
A few days after this prayer watch, I saw in the news that there was a powerful earthquake that hit Iran with a magnitude of 6.4 on the Richter scale in southern Hormozgan province.
When I saw the news and that the earthquake had a magnitude of 6.4, instantly the Holy Spirit spoke to me from Isaiah 64:1-4:
that the mountains would tremble before you!
As when fire sets twigs ablaze
and causes water to boil,
come down to make your name known to your enemies
and cause the nations to quake before you!
For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,
you came down, and the mountains trembled before you.
Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
As we continued to watch the nation of Iran during the month of December 2021, God spoke to me through a lecture by a well-known Jewish historian named Dr. Mordechai Kidar entitled, “Will Iran’s regime collapse in 2022?” I was so drawn to this lecture that I listened to the whole 41 minutes. He explained how the anthropology of Iran is made up of so many people groups which means that the majority are not Persian. These groups do not support the current Iranian regime. They have been waiting for a window of opportunity to start another revolution from inside the nation, turning the regime upside down again and bringing down the Islamic government. The expected timing of this possible revolution is during the week leading up to the celebration of the Iranian new year, “Noroz”. The reason for this timing is that the Wednesday preceding the Iranian year is called “Char Chambi Sori” in Farsi which means “the Wednesday of fire.”
On the evening of “the Wednesday of fire” everyone comes out onto
When I heard the date of “the Wednesday of Fire,” I felt instantly that the Holy Spirit was impressing on my heart to check the date that Purim falls in 2022! To my amazement, the date was also the 16th of March!
When I saw this, I knew the Holy Spirit was speaking to me clearly that He is setting up something for this coming Purim, to bring judgment on the Haman spirit that has been working in Iran, and for a possible revolution that could be ignited inside the nation to bring down princes and principalities.
As I continued to pray into this, I asked the Holy Spirit what He would want His watchmen to do at this time. I heard the number 44 in my spirit and realized it was connected with 22×2 from this year, 2022. I felt the Lord leading me to launch an urgent call to prayer and fasting for 44 days. This will begin on 2/2/2022, which will lead up to Purim on March 16th, which itself falls on “the Wednesday of fire” in Iran this year!
After searching more on the numbers I received, 44 days of fasting and prayer, I looked to see how many years Iran’s Islamic republic has been in power. The date of the establishment of the government after the revolution was February 11th, 1979. That means on February 11th 2022, Iran’s Islamic government will have lasted 43 years and be entering into its 44th year!
I knew that the Lord was speaking to me, that we are to ask Him to rend the heaven and come down over Iran and shake the regime and give courage and faith to the people of Iran to rise up and stand against this evil structure that has been threatening all the Middle East and especially the existence of Israel.
After receiving this revelation from the Lord, I asked Him what He wanted us to do. He showed me that He wants the intercessors to unite globally and begin to roar His decrees over Iran and speak deliverance to her people. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah is about to roar from Zion and bring vengeance over the Haman spirit that is moving in the land. Enough is enough, Aslan is on the move!
This is the decree to be released on Purim 16/3/2022!
and thunder from Jerusalem;
the earth and the heavens will tremble.
But the Lord will be a refuge for his people,
a stronghold for the people of Israel.
I believe we are called to another Esther moment in history to rise as Esthers all over the world and release our verdicts and decrees over the land of Iran for deliverance from the Haman spirit. Will you join the table of the Lord that He has set before our enemies, even as Esther created a banquet and invited the King together with her enemy “Haman?” There the battle was won! Let’s create a table before our enemies and partake of the table of the Lord, the bread and wine, and unite together for a corporate release from Zion and from the nations of the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!
We encourage you to join us daily during these 44 days and partake of the table of the Lord with bread and wine!
‘Behold, I will break the bow of Elam,
The foremost of their might.
Against Elam I will bring the four winds
From the four quarters of heaven,
And scatter them toward all those winds;
There shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.
For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies
And before those who seek their life.
I will bring disaster upon them,
My fierce anger,’ says the Lord;
‘And I will send the sword after them
Until I have consumed them.
I will set My throne in Elam,
And will destroy from there the king and the princes,’ says the Lord.
‘But it shall come to pass in the latter days:
I will bring back the captives of Elam,’ says the Lord..”
