DAY 31: 4:18N

Mar 31, 2019

…morning by morning he awakens me; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.

Isaiah 50:4

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed…”

Luke 4:18

Books don’t change people; paragraphs do. Sometimes even sentences.

-John Piper 

Startled, I awoke from my sleep this very morning hearing a very clear inner audible voice, “God you said that you would deliver us,” and then I saw this image like ticker tape going across my mind: 4:18N. Immediately I jumped out of bed calling to my wife, “Don’t let me forget this!” Instantly I knew the Lord was giving me the prayer to pray for the next 10 days. This is that prayer! “God, You said that You would deliver us! Release the delivering power of Luke 4:18, the scroll of Jesus into this Nation now!”

Remember Paul Cain, that great healing evangelist, and prophet, whose mother at age 104 said to Paul, “I have given you many words, but I am going to give you the most significant word I have ever given.” Paul said, “What is it?” and she said, “I don’t know, God hasn’t given it to me yet.” Then she went into a coma for 2 months. Finally coming out of the coma she said to Paul, “I am now giving you the word God promised. He is giving Luke 4:18 to you Paul, and to the world.” Amazingly in the presence of Paul and Mike Bickle, Anna Cain died on 4/18 at 4:18.

I have already shown you this photograph, but I want to show it again with this devotional. A random photo at The Send in Orlando on February 22, 2019. Look at the time on the TV monitor.

Isn’t it amazing that Paul Cain passed away right before The Send. He so wanted to be at that gathering to see the fulfillment of his prophecy of Stadium Christianity. I believe he saw that gathering from the great cloud of witnesses.

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.

John 12:24 

And so this morning, having this profound dream, I refuse to diminish its profound clarity and power. I believe we have come to an upper room moment to pray in Luke 4:18 for the next 10 days.


God, You said that You would deliver us! So, we have the courage to pray this very prayer. Let the Spirit of the Lord be upon us to set the captive free. We call forth Luke 4:18 for this nation now! In Jesus Name, Amen.

    My rabbi changed his sermon this Shabbat. Gave unprepared sermon on Luke 4:18. I also had the Spirit and baptized 2 grandkids today. The Dad is the PRIZE
    Please pray for all the missing dads and moms to come back LORD!
