History was made on June 12, 2018 when United States President Donald J. Trump struck a deal with the Communist Dictator Kim Jung-Un of North Korea. In exchange for complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization, President Trump offered Kim the lifting of heavy sanctions, peace, and hope for his devastated country. This is not only the first step toward ending the 70year war and ushering 25 million North Koreans into the 21st century, but it could also mark a turning point in the spiritual destiny of the nation.
In a country where Christians are heavily persecuted and even killed for merely possessing a Bible, Jesus could be introduced for the first time in three generations. As one of the last places on the earth where people have not yet been exposed to the Gospel, now is the time the enemy would love to keep it that way. Now is the time we need heavy intercession for Kim Jung-Un and the nation. We have the unprecedented opportunity to see a total culture shift in our lifetime, and God is in the restoration business.
In the natural, there are really only a handful of players on both sides of this deal. In the spirit, however, the entire body of Christ could be pushing over the tables of communism and its atheistic worldview. There are underground Christians secreted away who have been praying for a repeat of the Pyongyang revival of 1907. They have been calling out to Father to send help and relief from their persecution. These brothers and sisters need our prayers, now more than ever, as the battle in the spirit ramps up. Make no mistake, our enemy doesn’t want to give up this territory, and is throwing everything he can at it to derail lasting peace.
I call and challenge you to pray for North Korea every time you hear it mentioned. Pray for Trump and Kim, their families, and all of their staff and advisors. Pray for the turning of hearts of those who belittle, deride and ridicule their efforts, and break off any word curses spoken over this process. Pray that the Christian heritage in Kim’s family line would come back around in his life and legacy. We are positioned as warriors who can make a difference in the eternal lives of millions if we would but pray.
