When one knows what to look for, it becomes clear the influence of Baal is rooted deep within America.
The society that was founded on Judeo-Christian values is following the path of the ancient Israelites in turning away from God and replacing Him with a pagan influence.
As Christian leaders and believers across the world are taking time to lean into the Lord and seek Him for the upcoming New Year, Dutch Sheets has taken to praying against the influence of Baal in America and doing so in prayer and partaking communion.
Sheets encourages believers not just to send up wimpy, Spirit-deficient prayers against the enemy. But to empower one's prayers with the Spirit and engage the enemy that is deceiving America and take communion together and unleash the Lord's might and power across America.
All one must do to see the influence of Baal within American culture is turn on the news, as one-sided as it is.
The weeping prophet Jeremiah called out the Israelite culture of the time. In Jeremiah 7:8-10 he writes for the Lord saying, "Indeed, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. Shall you steal, murder and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, and come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, 'We are delivered,' so that you may do all these abominations?"
How familiar is the America of today to that which the Lord calls out?
In Sheets' recent "Give Him 15" prayer, written by Greg Hood after he was given a dream instructing him to "hit the mark," Sheets prayed that as America moves forward into the new year, Christians will, "stand strong amid the trials and the tribulations that face us on this journey."
When Christian leaders across the country such as Dutch Sheets and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn call for the prayers of believers to cover the leadership of America and its culture, the faithful need to listen.
There is power released in prayer, and America is in such a dire state spiritually, the only thing that can bring her back from the brink of collapse is the power and blessing of God.
Without these prayers America will fall. She will continue her descent into the occult and corrupting practices that separate the citizenry from God.
It is time for Americans across the country to heed the call of leadership that the Lord has emplaced and engage in the spiritual warfare that will unleash a torrential outpouring of glory from heaven across the nation.
