Grow Up! You’re Not Voting for Prom King — J.C.L. Faltot (Ep 156)

October 28, 2020

Here's a dialogue, a confabulation, a royal riff with J.C.L. Faltot! We are called to lives of influence ... salt, light, Kingdom leaven, all pointing to the coming Kingdom. And, yes, this includes political engagement. How do we think clearly and navigate this? Upstream from politics is culture, then worldview, and then belief systems. And upstream from it all ... the unseen spiritual domain.

Pray with me. Here's another empowering Kingdom Prayer Dynamic ... with forceful prayer, we can occupy spaces and places leading to the manifestation of God's will. In this episode, we draw on the Intercessors for America site and pray and decree over the empty seat in the United States Supreme Court. This is the 9th in a new prayer series we are creating that will become its own podcast soon. (This episode is more diesel than moped or vespa!)

"Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of Your Kingdom is a scepter of uprightness; You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness" (Psalms 45:6-7 ESV).

The Single Best Way to Win: Stay Above the Line (Ep 148)

The Single Best Way to Win: Stay Above the Line (Ep 148)

September 2, 2020

Are you "born again" as Jesus taught? Then you are "in Christ." And that means you are enthroned with him above everything IN THE NOW. So the key is to cultivate a consistent consciousness of that -- live and move "above the line." You can pray and decree down into earth-borne scenarios from King Jesus' POV - Point of View. And execute in life and work from your positioning with Christ! We can develop in this and positively win from heaven's perspective.

Heaven’s Dream for America (Ep 136)

Heaven’s Dream for America (Ep 136)

July 2, 2020

The "American Experiment" is singular in world history. It's not a nation founded on ethnicity or the legacy of a monarchy. American DNA is made up of high ideas -- the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." Unalienable Rights are given by the Creator. Not man. Not human government. Is America on the edge of a Third Great Awakening?

123: He Experienced a Prophetic Dream: Could May 1, 2020, Be a Pivotal Moment for the Coronavirus (And the American Economy)? — Matt Peterson

On March 16, 2020, Matt Peterson experienced a prophetic dream — he encountered fearsome Chinese Foo Dogs (Chinese Guardian Lions) and bled profusely from his right wrist.

A former telecommunications officer with the federal government and now a pastor in North Carolina, Matt Peterson has sought the Lord for interpretation and insight. He’s advising May 1 could be a pivotal inflection point for the global pandemic (and the American economy) … if we contend in prayer and process with God.

A personal note — Brian Del Turco here. I’d like to share a note, and I know that Matt Peterson would agree. Even more important than dates and the understandable concern to see this struggle end, a more significant focus is, “Lord, what are you asking of me during this time. In what ways can I change?”

And another question: “Lord, in what ways are you asking your Church to change?” Our leading focus should be on transformation … personally and together with other Christ-Followers. The Society of Jesus can then please the Lord and more powerfully influence the Society-at-Large.
