The Lord Most High, the Lord God of the Bible, the Lord God of Israel is the only one who always wins at four dimensional chess.
Here are some things I have received in prayer as we have been seeking to “discern the times” (Matthew 16:3).
1. This Is a Time for Rapid Realignments of Nations in the Middle East, Forming Highways of Light.
I had a vision on May 29, 2018 of highways of light coming through the “David’s Harp Bridge” in Jerusalem towards His throne. These new highways were like a web with lines of light and blessing. I saw highways of light develop between the nations that had responded to the Lord…I even saw highways of light develop in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Bahrain.
I believe this is the season for a first fruits fulfillment of Isaiah 60:7, that during a time of “thick darkness’ covering the earth (vs. 2), that even people from Saudi Arabia (ancient Sheba, which most scholars identify as on the Arabian Peninsula) will come to Jerusalem “bearing gold, incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord”.
2. This Is a Time for Lightning Fast Setbacks for Demonic Plans Coming Out of Tehran, Ankara, and Moscow.
On September 9, 2019, I had the following vision during worship in our house of prayer: He [the LORD] was wrapped in dark storm clouds. Flashes of lightning went from the clouds towards Tehran, Ankara, and Moscow. Lightning struck a demonic throne in each place. The thrones started shaking and gradually disintegrating… the thrones were not completely destroyed, but they were obviously severely shaken, and there was a setback to any kind of evil purposes that they had planned.
I believe the strike taking out the major regional terrorist leader General Soleimani was an example of this.
3. This Is a Time for the Shifting of Many African Nations to Align With Israel and Biblical Values.
In prayer we can prevent the demonic plans to pull Africa into slavery to the Chinese Communist Party, to Islamic oil money, and to anti-Israel alignments. During worship in Jerusalem, I received visions of this on November 2015, January 2018 , and April 2020 .
4. This Is a Time for Evil Systems and Agendas to Be Exposed and Set Back for Many Nations and Institutions.
I saw a vision of spiders (evil leaders) and spider webs (evil systems) in May 2018. When we proclaimed this on Mt. Carmel, Israel, on 11 April 2019 with many Sudanese refugees present, the following day the New York Times headline read: “Sudan’s Spider is Finally Cast Out of His Web” (referring to the overthrow of Al Bashir’s year reign as dictator).
5. This Is a Time to Pray America Will Not Give in to Any Dividing Up of the Land Biblically-Promised to Israel (Something With Serious Consequences, According to Joel 3) as They Walk Out the Establishment of the Radical New Alliances Forming in the Middle East.
I believe there will be a time to allow Israel to declare legal sovereignty (not “annexation”) over all of Judea and Samaria in keeping with the San Remo Accords of 1920. I saw this sequence of events in a vision May 2018 when I saw a reconciliation movement in the Middle East (a degree of the fulfilment of Isaiah 19) and the Jewish people returning from the nations to dwell on the “mountains of Israel”, a term basically synonymous to Judea and Samaria, referred to by nations now as the “West Bank” (the fulfilment of Ezekiel 36).
I submit these conclusions as what I believe is a “discerning of the times” from my perspective of prayer and networking from Jerusalem across the Middle East, and am open to further dialogue with others in the Body of Christ.
In the meantime, we all agree and declare that Jesus Christ is Lord of the nations, and that,
“He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” – Daniel 2:21

I’m a part of a prayergroup who wants to be alert in our prayers for Denmark, the church an of course Israel and the jews all over the world
Thanks for this great encouragement as we pray.
We look toward Jerusalem; we value deeply your leadership as intercessors
together with other faithful intercessory ministries in Israel.
Great to see Is19:19 onwards coming into focus & fulfillment.
We look forward to the leading of our Australian Aboriginal leaders
leading the Solemn Assembly this 26&27 Sep- on our face often. Rebellious
Melbourne & Victoria is coming into its ordained place of leadership amongst the States of Australia following a prolonged lockdown- disciplining the ekklesia.
Awesome, Rick! This explains the UAE & Bahrain normalizing relations w/ Israel, & others moving embassies to Jerusalem. Thank you for your updates. As the veil between the natural & the spiritual gets thinner, I feel it most important to discern what God is doing. Its a different perspective.
Dear Succath Hallel,.
I wisited your prayer house a few years ago. I met brother Rick and Patricia when he visted Budapest and also at an early prayer journey of TJCII of which I am heading up in Hungary. I am very blessed by the special anointing on your ministry.
Grazie ma pero non c e nulla riguardo l Europa…strano…non e che siamo messi tanto bene nei confronti D Israele anzi…dalla Svizzera Shalom
Yes! Now is a vital time for Christians to take hold of the fact that we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against principaities and powers in this dark world – we must take hold of the authority we have been given through the blood of Christ and defeat Satan – God’s will be done! Amen
What an awesome God we serve. What an amazing season when just reading the headlines of the daily news, confirms the work of the kingdom of God and our King. Praise you mighty God, your Kingdom come Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Abraham Accords probable cause of allowing such huge supernatural disasters of fire and flood in the United States.
God bless you Rick. It is so good to hear from a trust worthy voice.
We are certainly living in interesting times.
“In prayer we can prevent the demonic plans to pull Africa into slavery to the Chinese Communist Party, to Islamic oil money, and to anti-Israel alignments.”
Talking about Africa, Nigeria in particular has sold itself into neocolonial slavery in the hand of Britain from past and recently China. Islam is on a very high well-planned secret jihad already against christians in the country while the Islamic banks are taking over the economy through loans! Nigeria and her government now is totally ANTI – ISRAEL and ANTI – TRUMP. The ONLY WAY NOW is to pray for the emergence of BIAFRA NATION IN SOUTHERN NIGERIA to form a strong alliance with Israel and America.Then, from that base deliver Africa from Islamic jihad and worldwide terrorism.
Diplomatically, Israel should start investing in the south east Nigeria and raising up strong religious and economic ties.
Thank you for your update! Discerning the times, in this world/ four Dimensional chess! We shall continue to the pursue the Fathers heart, into intercession, seeking the words of the Holy Spirit, through the word, in these times!!!
Jesus is indeed LORD over the nations!!!
