North Korea said it successfully test-fired a new long-range cruise missile over the weekend, stoking tensions in the first public testing activity in months amid a prolonged deadlock in nuclear talks with Washington, according to The Washington Post.
Could this development bring us one step closer to the manifestation of prophetic vision I had in and about New York City? We need to keep praying through this vision as the Lord recently spoke to me about “another 9/11.” As I pray through that word, and as I saw this headline in WashPo, the Holy Spirit reminded me of this visual revelation I received from May 2019. You can read it below.
It was a sudden encounter with visionary revelation that must be shared—and spur the intercessors to stand in the gap immediately.
A Sudden Vision
I was traveling from Awakening House of Prayer D.C. to Awakening House of Prayer New York City on a train. When we disembarked at Penn Station, I saw a sign that said Fire Storm. The sign caught my attention like the burning bush caught Moses’ attention and I was suddenly caught up in a vision.
In this vision, I saw New York City engulfed in what I can best describe as nuclear snow. I saw people running frantically through the streets in terror. Like a camera zooming in for emphasis, I saw a small child with his hands over his ears screaming. In a word, it was chaos.
When I asked the Lord who was launching these attacks, I saw a room filled with military officers. Like a camera panning upwards, I saw the shoes of one man, then the pants, jacket and collar. The uniform was brown and the collar was red. Just then, I was interrupted and did not see their faces.
Unmistakably, the uniform was North Korean. Although North Korea doesn’t have the missile technology to hit Manhattan yet, some weapons analysts argue North Korea could potentially hit New York in the future depending on the trajectory of the launch.
What I saw next confirmed the treat carries greater urgency: North Korea is in bed with Russia.
Historic Ties Between Russia and North Korea
I began researching legitimate ties between these two countries and what could cause them to work together at this moment in history. Immediately, I discovered the history of North Korea initiated at the end of World War II in 1945. When Japan surrendered, Korea was divided at the 38th parallel.
The Soviet Union occupied the north and the United States occupied the south. These superpowers could not come to terms with unifying the country so two individual governments were formed. The People’s Republic of Korea (or North Korea) aligned with the Soviet Union. The Republic of Korea (or South Korea) aligned with the West.
In other words, Russia has had historic ties with Communist Korea since its founding. With this, the dots are starting to connect. In 2003, the Lord told me, “Don’t trust the bear.” I didn’t know what that meant when I first heard it, but the bear is the symbol for Russia.
With the help of the Russians, North Korea is planning a nuclear attack on New York City—and not just New York City but a coordinated attack on other strategic cities in America. These plans will collapse as intercessors stand in the gap. This is not the judgment of God on America but an enemy plan to kill, steal and destroy.
Praying From the High Places
After this startling vision, the Lord told me to go to the top of the Empire State Building and speak to the city and prophesy over the city. Why the Empire State Building? I believe because it is a high place—and because the late David Wilkerson once stationed intercessory prayer teams there. That prayer opened a portal over the city that needs to be reopened. This will take concentrated prayer, but it can be done.
While atop the building, the Lord reminded me New York is known as the city that never sleeps, but it is sleeping. Even after the tragedy of 911, the city at large is slumbering. The Lord said, “The city that never sleeps needs to pray without ceasing.” The enemy’s plans cannot stand where intercession stands. Awakening House of Prayer New York City is praying without ceasing.
There Can Be No Peace with Kim Jun Ung
In the secular media, we are reading plenty about peace talks with North Korea. The Lord showed me there can be no peace with North Korea under this evil regime. Even what may look like peace will not be peace.
Unless God encounters his heart, Kim Jung Un will continue plotting, posturing and planning against the US. He is a cruel dictator among his people, with brutal and inhumane laws in the land, persecution of Christians, and systemic sexual abuse.
Since Kim Jung Un took reign in 2011, he has launched more missile tests than his father did during his tenure. He seems to feel he has something to prove. He reminds me of Rehoboam in the Bible.
After King Solomon died, Rehoboam took the throne. The elders of Israel advised him to speak well to the people to gain their loyalty. His friends told him to rule with an iron first. Rehoboam declared, “My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges!” (2 Kings 12:14)
The Israelites eventually revolted against King Rehoboam. Much the same, Kim Jung Un is ruling with an iron fist, but the Lord shows me his plans for New York City will fail as the intercessors rise up. And his regime will fall. The Lord says there will be a New Korea.
