Over the past few weeks the Lord has been stirring my heart in regard to Canada’s destiny and a coming invasion of the angelic host. God has chosen specific nations, released to run at appointed times in History as the catalyst for the unfolding of His transcendent plan. The primary example being Israel, the nation chosen for the establishment of the Throne of God, the container of the whole counsel of God, and the centre of His administrations through whom He has moved out to take dominion of the earth. From Jerusalem, to Judea, to Samaria the Gospel went to the ends of the earth, by way of certain Gentile nations raised up in appointed seasons. Through Rome, Christianity spread throughout Europe and on to Africa, from Constantinople to the Soviet Union; through Spain to the Americas and through Great Britain to the Commonwealth nations. It is very important to understand that no nation can usurp the position God has ordained for Israel, or represents the Promised Land from where Jesus will rule and reign over the earth!
The United States of America was held in reserve and honored as a land of promise for the escape of religious persecution and to also take the Gospel to the world. God has given the United States great military power as a force to restrain evil on earth. The United States was also chosen to stand as a strong ally and friend to the nation of Israel, to support its growth, guard His purposes contained in it, and protect it from the enemies of God! The USA has recently been wavering in this God given mandate.
Also held in reserve for such a time, God is now set to bring forth the last catalytic nation to the forefront—Canada. Canada has been chosen to play a significant role in the completion of God’s intentions in the last days before His return! Canada’s mandate is not in relation to its military might but rather, God will invest this nation with spiritual might and authority to enforce key strategies and divine tactical maneuvers in His end-time campaign.
While writing this word, in reference to Canada, I heard the Lord say, “Last Runner.” In researching that phrase I discovered that the last runner in a relay race is called the ANCHOR RUNNER. The anchor runner is responsible for preserving the lead already secured on the anchor leg or last leg of the race!
God has prepared Canada for the glory of His Presence, as the Anchor Runner in the last leg of the Divine Journey, to lead in the work to prepare the last day sanctuary that receives Christ! Canada will be used by God to bring forth the yet awaited revelation of the One New Man that Jesus died for, in an authentic union with Israel and with God! Canada will become a sign and wonder to the nations as a nation that resides under the Glory, favor and blessing of God by its choice to bless Israel! The three crowns that form the maple leaf on the Canadian flag represent God’s call and authority to release His healing to the nations. The two bars of red on either side of the leaf represent the Blood and the double supernatural ‘Grace, Grace’ to complete the work to bring forth the Headstone—an apostolic generation raised up as the Mature Man, in a Holy union of purpose with Christ! (Zech. 4:7, Eph. 4:13).
The great nation of Canada is poised at the entrance of a season of great national revival! The Church of Canada must make the choice to AWAKEN AND ARISE, to triumph over the forces of darkness pressing in at its gates, with determination to overtake the nation. It is time for Canada to arise to the Glorious destiny Almighty God has purposed for it! This Mighty move of His Spirit has been revealed to many prophetic voices dating back as far as 1776:
Around 1776 zealous Americans sought to persecute the British Empire Loyalists who had turned north to settle in Canada in order to remain under the British rule. The Spirit of the Lord spoke through the prophets of the Puritan Reformers saying: “Do not hinder these people, let them move to Canada. Do not seek to incorporate the land of Canada into America. I am in the independence of America from Britain, and will mightily use this country. But Canada has been reserved by Me for the last days for a special work.” (Peter Marshall: The Light and The Glory)
Canada has been ordained by God FOR A SPECIAL WORK, to play a critical role in the outworking of God’s plan to unveil the Bride of Christ in preparation for union with the Bridegroom. This nation has an ambassadorial call, to apostolic leadership, to represent God’s strategies for the closing of this age, and for the unification of the Body of Christ, in its transformation into the Bride of Christ! In years past I have had three significant revelations from God in regard to Canada that I believe have been reserved for now.
In the first vision I saw the map of North America, and as I looked at the map Canada shifted and was lifted up as a holy offering onto God. As I continued to look, the entire nation burst into fiery red and golden flames. As I continued to marvel at this site the nation was raised upward and became a Golden Crown. I believe Canada is a nation where God will establish His Throne of righteousness and justice!
The second revelation I received came as I was leading an Intercessory prayer meeting for Canada; as we were praying, the Lord led me to Luke 14:7-11 a parable about a wedding feast:
“So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them: “When you are invited by anyone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in the best place, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him; and he who invited you and him come and say to you, ‘Give place to this man,’ and then you begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, go up higher.”
The Lord then said that Canada had been faithful over the years to remain in the background in humility, that it was time for Canada to come to the forefront and take its place in the destiny of God, as He intends to show up in this nation in a mighty and momentous move! God is now saying to Canada: “FRIEND, COME UP HIGHER, RECEIVE THE GLORY OF MY PRESENCE THAT IS COMING UPON YOU.”
The third revelation God gave me was through a dream: I was on a white horse seated behind the Lord, holding on to Him. I was wearing a Bridal dress and the train was very long and blowing in the wind as we were flying above the clouds. We then descended through the clouds and I began to see the earth below. We flew closer to the earth towards North America. I then saw Canada. We flew very quickly toward its Eastern coast line then suddenly stopped just outside of Canada.
We sat there looking across the nation of Canada; it was very bright, lit up with white light. Wide beams of white light were extending up into the heavens from the entire nation, coast to coast. I then saw a thick white cloud descending over Canada. As I looked closer I then realized that it was not a cloud at all, but rather, thousands and thousands of angels descending upon the nation. We stayed outside of Canada observing this; there was the sense in me, almost of urgency—more like a striving to get moving and enter the nation. I wanted to prompt the horse and move the Lord to enter… the vision then ended.
As I prayed to the Lord about what this meant, and why we did not enter, I sensed that it was not yet time! That in the fullness of time HE WOULD ENTER, and when He did enter, all Canada would know it! The white beams of light ascending to Heaven represented the intercessory prayers of the saints that have been going up through a multitude of prayer movements and Houses of Prayer, all across this nation from coast to coast. As a result an invasion of the angelic host was being released to prepare the nation for a mighty end-time move of God!
Numerous nations around the earth such as Korea have heard God’s call to prayer for Canada and hundreds of thousands have been faithfully praying over the years! Many prophets and leaders have prophesied great things for Canada such as Yonggi Cho, Kenneth Copeland, Cindy Jacobs and Chuck pierce (many of these prophecies can be found on the internet). Leaders such as David Damien—an Egyptian Christian, must be honored for answering the call to come to Canada to lay the groundwork of cleansing the land of antisemitism and prejudice, to prepare it for its Divine historic mandate!
Over history God has used key nations as runners to carry the baton on the Divine journey of the Ascent to Union with Christ! As in a relay race, each runner must hand off the baton to the next runner within the assigned zone. We are now entering the zone of the Fullness of Times—the time of completion of the House of God and the summing up of all things in Christ, contained in the dynamics of the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be fulfilled in the season of Parousia—the Season of His Presence—the season of the closing of the age, when the level of His Presence will rise exponentially, culminating with His return! It is time to bless Canada, to intercede for Canada, to cheer her on in her call to run the race well, to finish the Divine circuit and hand the baton back to Israel, as the Body—the One New Man, in a unity of purpose, work together to prepare the way for the return of the King of kings!
Now, my son, may the LORD be with you; and may you prosper, and build the house of the LORD your God, as He has said to you. Only may the LORD give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the LORD your God… Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the LORD.” 1Chronicles 22:9-14
In long relays, runners begin by jogging while looking back at the incoming runner and holding out a hand to receive the baton. I believe God is saying to America, that CANADA HAS BEGUN TO RUN; she has been looking back to you over the years, receiving much treasure from you, and now, is now holding out her hand, to take her place in the race and run the Anchor Leg to the finish line! Canada and the United States share the longest border in the world, we are friends, allies and most importantly we share a divine destiny in Christ to partner together to serve the purposes of the King. I believe God is asking the United States and all nations to now stand with Canada and under-gird His purposes with prayer & intercession!
