Matthew 21:18-22: “Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, ‘Let no fruit grow on you ever again.’ Immediately the fig tree withered away.And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, ‘How did the fig tree wither away so soon?’So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”” (NKJV)
The other day as I was deeply concerned, I asked the Lord about corruption in the United States and its source, so He led me to do a prophetic act to scoop up corruption out of the dirt with my hands, spiritually. Soon I saw a huge, ugly tree, much like a huge oak, bigger than I had ever seen in the natural, with roots down deep and branches as far as one could see. It was a dead, dark black tree with no life – but standing strong and defiant.
The Lord reminded me of the parable of the fig tree and told me to curse this dead evil tree that was not bearing fruit. He said that it was a tree of corruption, darkness, and death in the United States. It was trying to take our nation over and involves socialism, communism and, undoubtedly, Antichrist. Led by the Lord in obedience, I had to curse it at the root and call the seeds to die as well. The seeds are indeed the seeds of corruption. Jesus must have done the same, cursing the very life out of the totality of the fig tree that was bearing no fruit so as to not let any more darkness and lack of fruit come from the tree ever again. I knew that it is a principle of God’s Word and spiritual warfare to be able to curse the darkness and its evil.
Of course, we are never to curse a person. Jesus said to bless those who persecute us in Romans 12:14: “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” We often hear the first part (bless those who persecute) but not the second part of the very same scripture: “bless and do not curse.” This is a big word of caution to all intercessors that we must never use this type of warfare for control, for our own selfish motives, nor to go against God’s will. We can only curse darkness, those ungodly things that defile the land, that cause people to go astray, and those things that are an abomination to God’s Word and will, always as led by the Lord.
In the words of Jesus in this passage of the fig tree in Matthew 21, He is admonishing us to have the faith to do this, telling us that we can move mountains as well as curse an evil tree if we just have a little faith. With Jesus’ anointing, we can do this by His power and authority because He said: “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” in 1 John 4:4 (NKJV). Yes, we can indeed curse the evil “trees” which are not bearing fruit and those that are bearing poisonous fruit as well, but we must be careful to yield to Holy Spirit’s direction as to when to do this and what to direct this at.
This tree that I saw had roots of rebellion against God and was infiltrating so much of our society. Its aim was to destroy America and the Church with the same disease that infected it, endeavoring to kill more. Within its horribly evil branches were: abortion; cancel culture whose aim was to cancel the biblical heritage of the United States; euthanasia; attempts to muzzle the Church; attempts to destroy the economy so that the United States would no longer be a world power; plots for one-world religion and government; as well as its agenda to destroy Israel.
After cursing the dark tree of corruption, I pleaded the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, spiritually over this dark structure and diabolical plan to destroy America….and you can too.
Next, it was crucial to declare life and healing to “trees” of Godliness, holiness, and righteousness in America, planted by the “First Planters,” Pilgrims and Founding Fathers of this nation.
I am reminded of the flag “Appeal to Heaven” with its evergreen tree of life; the flag and its meaning being a part of America’s foundation, brought to our attention by Dutch Sheets. He wrote in Elijah List on May 20, 2015: http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=14732 “According to American Revolutionary War history, faced with the insurmountable power of the British Army, yet aware that God’s purposes are at the core of America’s founding, the flag’s slogan had become the cry of Revolutionaries and Colonists alike. As our speaker unfurled this white flag, I was captivated by the image emblazoned upon its center: an evergreen tree.”
So, after cursing the huge dark tree of corruption, it was imperative to speak life to the Godly “trees” or structures such as this appeal to heaven evergreen which is a part of our foundation. This is so that the good “trees” that have been planted can flourish without being drowned out by the huge evil and poisonous tree.
I ask you to declare with me that this tree of corruption and Antichrist is cursed dead at the roots and rendered powerless (that even its seeds of corruption are dead) and cannot corrupt America any longer in the media, elections, schools, colleges, nor in any part of government or society – in Jesus’ matchless and all-powerful name.
Jesus is Lord over America and nothing shall overtake it!
