“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who [j]will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
John 17. 2-23

In this very well known portion of the Scriptures we find the most significant prayer of intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ for those who have become believers so that the world will know that He was sent to die for the sins of the whole world and he is not willing that any should perish.

The spirit of the Lord is calling His Church to function as one healthy body, strong and committed that is able to live and manifest His Love, His Power, His will for our lives and for His Kingdom.

In His letter to the Philippians Paul writes what I believe to be HIS will for our lives , our ministries, our families and particularly applicable to those called to serve Him.

The times that we are living are difficult and perilous and God is not looking for individual heroes who like the Church of Laodicea that felt that they were rich and wealthy and they needed of no one to carry out its mission. What the Church is living today is NOT a political or individual problem, rather a corporate and Spiritual issue. It is a Spiritual conflict in which we are battling against personal, philosophical and Territorial Strongholds which are principalities and powers and powers, against the rulers of Darkness of this age and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.

There is no way that we can accomplish anything significant if we don’t battle together as one. What we are living today is a reflection of the consequence of a Church divided and proud that rather than working for the same purpose and with the same vision and commitment that has failed to take the necessary steps to achieve what God is calling us to do.

The Spirit of the lord is calling and looking for a Church that functions as a healthy Body, strong in Unity and commitment that manifests the strength and Power of God Almighty.

The CLUB Atmosphere, the superficial piety, the unbelief, the division, the autonomy, the pride, the lack of commitment that were considered normal in the past and present are NOT going to satisfy God nor achieve the changes and urgency of the moment. When we speak of UNITY today we are NOT speaking as a time of fellowship in a convenient location to enjoy a good time without purpose and objectives, without vision and desperation for changes and transformation.

In the following verses we find the three primary requisites for those called to perform the redemptive work that is needed in this hour.

Only let your CONDUCT (Behavior, Actions) be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come (visitation) and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit,(UNITY) with one mind striving ( Battling, Wrestling, Fighting) together for the faith of the gospel, (INTERCESION) 28 and not in any way terrified (INTIMIDATED, FEARFUL, DOUBLE MINDED) by your adversaries, (PERSEVERANCE) which is to them a proof of perdition, but [a]to you of salvation, and that from God. Philippians 1.27-28

1. UNITY. When we speak of unity we are not asking for unity of convenience but a unity of CONVICTION. The condition of your heart produces your behavior. Jesus Said that what is in the heart produces what we do.(Mathew 15.19)

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all [a]speak the same thing, and that there be no [b]divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1.10

When God looks at HIS Church in a city or you state or your Nation He does not see congregations, nor does He speak of my purposes individually but CORPORATELY (Bodily). His messages were written to the Church (not churches) in Ephesus, Corinth, Philippi, Colossae, Smyrna, Thyatira, Pergamum, Etc. ONE BODY with many members each one supplying according to its gifting to achieve my purposes where they were sent. I believe every pastor has the keys to the place they were sent to and the more keys you have the more doors you can open.
Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2.2-4

2. INTERCESSION. Intercession causes visitation, visitation causes transformation. transformation causes persecution and persecution brings INTERVENTION.

When I speak of intercession, I am NOT referring to simple prayers for our or someone else’s needs and wants, I am not referring to a Spiritual engagement that comes out of desperation for the present conditions of The Church, My City, My Nation. I am seeking God’s face and asking for those conditions that we desperately want to see changed.

For thus says the LORD: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (The Hebrew reading here is To give you the end that you expect)12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search (Heb. DARASH) for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jeremiah 29.10-14

The Hebrew word DARASH suggests a close pursuit of a desired objective. It also implies a diligence in the searching Process.

Throughout the Scriptures we find repeatedly God’s people seeking after Hin, his face, His presence, His help. It is a quest for God that includes a high level of intensity beyond ordinary personal or corporate prayers, As we desperately seek His attention and Intervention.

3. PERSEVERANCE. A willingness to pay the price that God requires from us in difficult times. God gives us authority over the things we love.

By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3.16

The statement not in any way TERRIFIED, ALARMED, FRIGHTENED, FEARFUL, INTIMIDATED, DISMAYED (other versions) alludes to timidity and fear caused by those that oppose us and criticize or threaten us to hinder us from pursuing what God has commissioned us to do.

Let me assure you MOST of the time there will be those who oppose us from within and from without. Jannes and Jambres opposed him from outside God’s people , they were evil Egyptian sorceress and Miriam and Aaron who opposed Moses from within God’s people. Nehemiah was opposed by Sambalat, Tobias and Geshem. Jesus was opposed by Pharisees and Sadducees, Paul was opposed by religious leaders that tried to kill him and he was very grieved by Hymenaeus and Alexander. Satan will try to intimidate us with fear and timidity. How can we fight that?

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1.9
There are also three elements required of every ministry:
1. Vision. (Water)
2. Revelation. (New
3. Anointing. (Oil)
These three elements can bring a visitation from God ( Kairos). What happens in this conference can bring a national and a Community Transformation that will occur Not by what you say but because of what you will do. God declared it and it was so.
It is necessary to have a commitment and Territorial Vision. You MUST be united in vision and purpose. To seek a transformation you must seek God to reveal to us the strategies for our objectives and to operate under the anointing of the Holy Spirit that lives in us and the power that has been given to us.
This Conference is a divinely appointed time where the Lord has brought you together to an engagement of conflict against Principalities and Powers, Against the rulers of the Darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. It is FAITHFULL SPIRITUAL WARFARE against Territorial Spirit that rule over cities, regions and Nations. In this case the Nation of Iran.

I will call this a gathering of Generals preparing a strategy for the coming engagement with the Principalities and Powers ruling over your beloved Nation. I dare to say it is a conflict with the Prince of Persia. The same power principalities that Michael and his Angels had to fight when they were sent to inform Daniel of the answer to his passionate intercession.

There is an organized structure in the Angelic realm profoundly influential in humanity’s history. In Daniel 10.13 we can see that warring angels have a Chief Prince, Michael who is also called an Archangel
“O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” While he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling.
Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” Daniel 9.11-13
19 And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!”So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.” 20 Then he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come. 21 But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. (No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince. Daniel 10.19-21
In order to prepare a strategy for the battle plan you must remember the following:
Purposes and plans are established by counsel; and [only] with good advice make or carry on war. Proverbs 20.18
For by wise counsel you can wage your war, and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety. Proverbs 24.6
In Ephesians 1.17-19 Paul Prays for people to receive the spirit wisdom and revelation with the purpose of God to open their spiritual eyes and understand of God’s calling, God’s Glorious Inheritance and God’s Almighty Power.
19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality[a] and [b]power and [c]might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1 19-23
Here we see that the power God has given us is FAR ABOVE ALL principality, power, might and dominion and any name throughout the ages and has placed ALL THINGS to THE CHURCH and in which you can find the Totality of God.
Once you know and understand who you are In Christ and the indwelling Power of The Holy Spirit you are told to DECLARE and DECREE to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places what is God’s will for HIS Church. The knowledge that the GATES of HELL cannot prevail against it. Knowing that no word spoken by God is void of power and that anything God has promised, you will decree and declare it will be established for you and Light will shine upon you path.
10 to the intent that now the [a]manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the [b]principalities and powers in the heavenly places, 11 according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him. Ephesians 3.10-12
You cannot be timid and bold at the same time. There has to be a boldness and the faith behind it to engage in Territorial level warfare, there has to be an expectation of success because the Bible says that we will receive according to our earnest expectations, it says that we will achieve the end that we expect.
God promised Jeremiah that if he call upon him and would seek his face, not only would he answer him but would also REVEAL to him great and mighty things that could not otherwise be known.
Purposes and plans are established by counsel; and [only] with good advice make or carry on war. Proverbs 20.18
6 For by wise counsel you can wage your war, and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety. Proverbs 24.6
Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one mistake can cause a lot of damage. Ecclesiastes 9.18
Over the last 5000 years Iran was known as Persia and in 1935. Persia was the largest empire in Civilization History. During the captivity of God’s people around 500 BC God raised a woman named Ester and her uncle Mordecai who trough fasting, prayer and unity were able to rescue God’s people and from annihilation. Their total Unity, Intercession and perseverance brought about a dramatic change to the entire nation.
Prayer of deliverance for the Nation
Almighty God, you have called us to be under your ordained jurisdiction in behalf of your people in our Nation. Because of your favor we plead for you to spare all believers from the enemy’s plans to destroy and kill those for whom Jesus died. In the name of Jesus Christ we command the Spirits of death, destruction and deception to be bound and we pray for the power of these principalities and powers over the rulers that are being influenced to destroy and deceive the people they rule.
We ask that you raise up deliverers like Esther and Mordecai to fast and intercede in behalf of Our nation. Grant hearts of repentance to the many people in the cities and villages, where you are sending us to declare liberty to the captives. Raise up a new generation of Apostles and Prophets to lead the Church into victory.
Lord, bring forth watchmen (intercessors) who will NOT REMAIN silent day and night UNTIL we see a spiritual victory. We ask that the people of Iran will be known as holy people redeemed of the Lord and that their cities will be called “sought after and no longer deserted”
We declare to you Satan, that you will no longer be able to plunder and steal, killed an destroy! We have been given the power to trample over you and overcome your power and deception!! Trough the Cross you are disarmed and your decree of Death is BROKEN!!!
Lord, release your love over the nation of Iran, bring healing to our land and bring forth a national repentance. Send forth angelic hosts in our midst to help and battle in our behalf. In Jesus name we PRAY. AMEN!!!!!!!!!
