DAY 22: God Overrules the Edicts of Man

Mar 22, 2019

So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.

Esther 8:2

“The church is not at the mercy of political decrees of destruction. Jesus is the Lord of history! Though this law stands today, it will not stand forever. God is the one who overrules the edicts of man and His church is the agent of righteous revolution, overthrowing kings and their decrees through the nonviolent weapons of prayer and fasting.”

-Lou Engle ‘Fast Forward’


In the casting of lots, Haman was seeking occultic guidance for the day in which the genocide of the Jews would take place. Such a decree could not be reversed through a political appeal. Haman had escalated the whole matter into the demonic spiritual realm. Understanding this, Esther had to deploy spiritual weapons to contend in this spiritual battle. She called three days of fasting and the result of that fast was a complete reversal of public policy in the Persian kingdom. This is stunning. Haman was removed and the righteous Mordecai was placed over Haman’s house.


In 2017 I dreamed of a women’s movement that was coming and they would be taught the book of Esther. In the dream, a woman stood up and said these two words in the book of Esther actually mean Nazgul. I woke immediately from the dream understanding the message. In the third episode of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Return of the King, the Nazgul witch king was destroying the armies of men. He boasts, “No man can kill me.” But the daughter of the King Theoden dressed in warriors armor took off her helmet, let her hair down and exclaims, “I am no man!” She pierces the Nazgul with her sword and he shrivels up and dies. I knew at that moment there was coming an Esther movement in which godly women would be raised up in high places of authority and through fasting and prayer and courageous legislation, they would be used mightily to reverse demonic decrees.


We are in this three day fasting moment. Thousands of women are joining us in this prayer. May the Mordecai men join with the prayers of the Esthers to shift this Supreme Court. Our battle is not with people, it is with spiritual powers. I was confronted today by a quote from Shawn Bolz, “You will never have spiritual authority over anything you are not willing to love.” We must be careful that in our seeking to bring forth justice, our hearts are oiled with love, or we will become like the very beast we are trying to destroy.


God, you love these Justices. Lord we pray for these 9 Supreme Court Judges; Roberts, Thomas, Alito, Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Kagan. Move on their hearts, bless their families. Father, we know we are in a great spiritual battle and therefore we take our stand according to Ephesians 6 and declare the victory of the cross over the spiritual powers that seek to exercise their dark rule over this Court. Father, we pray that you would raise up a Mordecai or an Esther to sit in the seat of Haman. In Jesus name Amen.
