Tora Tora Tora
Word by Deborah Gliebe
FireGate Ministries  September, 2001

As we now know, America has been attacked! Our only heart cry should scream, "YOUR MERCY, OH GOD!" The United States and Israel have been attacked this day. Israel, in reality has also been attacked as many who work at the World Trade Center were Jewish!

Though I rarely watch any newer movies because of their sin riddled content, a few months ago, I felt led to watch the 1970 film "Tora Tora Tora" and shortly afterward the new release of the movie "Pearl Harbor." On the way home from the movie I sensed God filling my spirit with an ominous warning over the United States. I immediately prayed, "God are you saying war is coming to America?" Instantly, the words I heard were, "Israel, pray for Israel!" In my spirit, I knew that what happens to Israel will affect America! Pray! Pray for America, your president and your LEADERS."

Concern filled our souls and my husband, Tom, and I began to pray all the way home as we knew by the Spirit that something was up. We informed our ministry team at FireGate of Deborah's word and advised we all prayed.

If you look at these movies you will see the attack came by air! The people were at ease. No one was prepared nor dreamed that such a horrifying blow would really happen! In Japanese, Tora means tiger, and today the lurking Tiger leaped upon our shores! We must pray that Jesus, The Lion of Judah, protect our nation from even worst events to come.

Today what the Lord spoke into my spirit was, "Sound the alarm and rise up, my people in prayer and fasting." God said to tell the people to pray for the CHAIN OF EVENTS THAT WILL FOLLOW! That this horrific attack upon American soil could begin a chain of events that may have greater impact than has already happened!

America, fall on your knees! For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Our cry is, "Prepare for battle!" War, Spiritual war, is at hand. Bind the enemy from the terrorist and pray the Holy fear of God to come to the shores of America. Bind spirits of rage, revenge, fear and panic.

Over the centuries, as a nation, we have gone from, "In God We Trust," to, "In Money We Lust!" Although this attack comes from terrorist outside the USA, God promises protection for those who follow His ways and not the ways of the World. Today you have not only seen the horror of events unfold before your eyes but you have heard wonderful stories of courageous Americans, some dying, to save or help someone in dire need but the moral and spiritual corruption that has been undermining America The Beautiful has brought upon this nation the realization that we no longer are a secure people. We have been struck at the core of America's heart! Our great financial system, symbolized by the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the might of the United States military represented by the Pentagon, denote the biceps on the arms of our world authority, and are personified by our money and power!

Truly this day, September 11, 2001 is better said in short hand, "911!" Help us Lord! Direct our steps! Forgive us, as a nation, for turning away from your words of Life and the Spirit of True. Send conviction upon us that we might turn to Jesus with all our hearts!

Many now fear tomorrow! Today, every American place of residents has changed to a State of Emergency as America has been undressed before the World. No one knows where we will be struck next! Hit the deck! Fall on your knees! Pray in the Spirit! The real power is Jesus Christ who directs the hearts of Kings and is the Lord of All!

A survivor of this holocaust, Peter Desovo, was interviewed on TV 8 News today said he was on the 42nd floor when the first plane hit. They were all stunned and then raced down 42 flights of stairs and out into the street along side of hundreds running as fast as they could go as the building came crashing down in a immeasurable torrent of steel and cement. As he raced out of harms way he stopped, fell to his knees and thanked God over and over, for he had been sure that he was going to die.

Let each church or home group leader, across America, begin calling for prayer meetings in their cities. To pray against the poverty of spirit; a condition that has brought spiritual decay to our bones. Let us begin, once again, to repent before our God, turn from our wicked ways and pray for our land to be healed. Pray that God keep our enemies from drawing us into a World War where millions could die.

Pray for REVIVAL! For a sin killing, devil stomping Holy visitation creating repentance that remains! Pray for Christians to take their rightful place amongst the army of the Lord. Lord, we cry out this day for our nations and our leaders. Oh, Jesus come and empower them in this time of devastation as we walk in the Valley of Decisions. May God have mercy upon our nation!

Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. (Revelation 15:4)
