That prophetic voice was Cindy Jacobs.
The news of bin Laden’s death elicited memories of the national tragedy known as 9/11. That fateful day when the World Trade Center towers went up in deadly flames was of special interest to her as an intercessor. That’s because she had just flown from Washington, D.C., with many of Generals International’s state coordinators from the United States Reformation Prayer Network to intercede for the nation.
“Aside from the obvious joy that I felt as an American that this evil man had been brought to justice, I received two things from the Lord,” Jacobs told Charisma News. “One brings me great hope and the other an admonition.”
Here are the prophetic insights Jacobs shared with Charisma News:
With this strongman taken out, we will see a great increase in the number of Muslims coming to Christ in America and other parts of the world. Former Muslims will be emboldened in the Spirit to share their experience of knowing Christ. A sweeping move of the Holy Spirit along the Isaiah 19 “Highway of Holiness” will be experienced from Egypt to Iran, throughout Iraq to Israel. It will seemingly spring up out of nowhere but is actually the result of the prayers of many, and God answering from heaven the blood of those who have been martyred even in recent days. God has His “hidden army” among the youth even in the orthodox Church who will move in great signs and wonders and many will marvel and come to Christ.
Parallel with this encouraging word, Jacobs says the Lord showed her we need to stand guard against retaliation. The exact words Jacobs heard from the Lord were “batten down the hatches.” She explains that this is a nautical term used when a terrible storm is approaching. Jacobs concludes, “It seems as if the heavens are violent right now and we all need to pray protection and be especially vigilant for the nation.”
