The Rising of America – The Birthing of a Movement

America is in the middle of a civil war! The United States has become divided! But I believe that this will be the greatest time to be alive in history. But we need to stand up and speak up against tyranny. We need to be the remnant who will stand for freedom and not back down.

It was March of 2020 when the pandemic was released on a nation unaware. California was the first State to shut down. The “two weeks to slow the spread” has now turned into two years. Between mask mandates and the push to become “vaccinated” – people have grown weary.

When Covid 19 was first announced in the media, I heard God speak to me in prayer one day. God said to me, “Covid 19 is “Christ Overcoming Victory in Disease – Psalms 19”. You need to tell the people not to be afraid! They must NOT FEAR! There are 365 Bible verses that tell us not to fear. One for every day of the year!

But the unholy trinity was released on the people – Big Tech, Big Pharma and the Media. It was through this unholy alliance that propagated the fear and pushed people towards the narrative of “being vaccinated”. Like sheep being led to the slaughter, many people bought into the propaganda and took the bait.

An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met, including that there are no adequate, approved and available alternatives.

Typically, it takes many years for a vaccine to come to market in the testing phase. This so called “vaccine” was pushed on the public because there was an agenda associated with it. Profits over people! There were billions of dollars to be made by the unholy trinity. And the media was the false prophet with their propaganda to push their agenda.

On May 2, 2020, I woke up and heard these words, “We won’t shut up until you OPEN UP – OPEN THE HEAVENS”. I was given a directive to have seven baptisms along the western seaboard of the United States, starting at Pirates Cove (near Newport Beach, CA) and ending in Vancouver, B.C. I have written an extensive blog about that on this website). These baptisms shifted the atmosphere and “Opened the Heavens” along the western seaboard of the United States. I was given a mandate to have these baptisms completed before the Presidential election on November 3, 2020.

We all watched as the election was literally stolen in front of our eyes. Five precincts shut down the voting simultaneously. When we went to bed that night Trump was ahead – only to wake up and see that Biden had pulled ahead in the middle of the night. Everyone knew that something fishy was going on. Only later did we see on video the suitcases being pulled out where thousands of votes would go for Biden. Finally, on Saturday, November 7, 2020, Joe Biden was declared the 46th President of the United States!

There were many rallies which rose up in protest around the nation – including “Stop the Steal” and others. I went to the Jericho March on December 12, 2020 where thousands of Christians and Patriots gathered to march around the Supreme Court, the Capitol, and the White House seven times. The organizer of the event, Rob Weaver, was told by God to have Christians march around the buildings seven times similar to what happened in Jericho in the Old Testament.

I also went to Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, and saw over two million peaceful people protesting an election which we believed was stolen. I stood and heard President Donald J. Trump tell us to “peacefully and patriotically” make our way over to the Capitol. I stood in front of the Capitol and did a “live report” but never saw anything out of order except some smoke behind the building.

I did talk with some people who told me that the Capitol Police were waving people to come into the building. I’m sure there were a few bad apples who were amongst the Patriots. But where were the voices speaking up for Ashli Babbitt – the woman who was shot and killed by the Capitol Police officer?

Our country is divided! There is a saying, “United we stand, divided we fall.”

The Bible says in Mark 3:25 “A House that is divided against itself cannot stand”.

Our country was forged in the furnace of affliction under the dictates of England’s oppressive measures of taxation. It was under this type of tyranny that the American Revolution was birthed. Many Pastors and their congregants became known as the “Minute Men” when they took up arms and went to defend their homeland – America!

George Washington was leading the Continental Army during the American Revolution. It was during the winter of 1777 at Valley Forge where George Washington was in his office and had told his staff that he did not want to be disturbed. He heard a rustling and looked up to see a singularly beautiful being – an Angel. This beautiful Angel told George Washington, “Son of the Republic, Look and Learn”. The Angel showed Washington the three perils which were going to come upon America. After the vision faded the Angel finished by saying, “Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful for her is the third. But the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land, and Union”.

At the Washington Monument

This story was told by a soldier who had been at Valley Forge during that fateful winter in 1777 in Valley Forge. When he was 99 years old, he felt compelled to tell the story about George Washington and the Angel. It was published in the military newspaper which today is known as the “Stars and Stripes” publication.

The first peril the Angel spoke about to Washington was the American Revolution. The second peril was the Civil War. But I believe that we are at the beginning of the third peril now. Our country has many enemies surrounding us and within her own borders. But God is raising up a standard against darkness and the demonic forces which are trying to take America down.

I have been traveling from sea to shining sea during the last two years. I have been speaking, interviewing many significant voices of truth on my Podcast “Now is the Time, and sounding an alarm on God’s holy mountain. God told me many years ago, “Meri – your name is right in the middle of America.” To my shock – I realized it was! The name Meri means “shining sea”.

In II Chronicles 7:14 the Bible states: “If my people, called by my name, will humble themselves and pray. And seek my face and turn from their wicked ways. Then I will hear from Heaven and HEAL THEIR LAND”. We as a people need to repent and turn our faces back to God.

The battle lines are drawn – there is no middle ground any longer. You’re either cold or hot. White or black. You’re either in or out! You have to trust in God with all your heart. It’s always the darkest before the dawn. But God told me “The Greatest Show on Earth” is getting ready to start. God is going to “show up and show off”. He is our Father and will not leave us or forsake us! God has a covenant with America. Let’s stay the course, don’t lose heart and remember….

America will rise again! It’s Liberty Rising – the dawning of a GREAT AWAKENING! It’s the birthing of a MOVEMENT!

A Cry For Hollywood…

Hollywood is at the epicenter of an incredible movement of the Lord.  In North America today the average person spends less than 28 hours a year in church but 6 hours per day saturated in media.  That’s 2190 hours in media versus 28 hours in church!  Wow! 

Most people spend more than half their day saturated in media.  A recent Nelson study determined there are more televisions in America than human beings!  The average child will have watched 4,000 hours of TV before Kindergarten.  By age 18 the average person in America will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence through media (National Institute on Media and Family). 

If you want to impact a generation – impact what is impacting them – MEDIA!  Better yet – impact it with your most powerful tool – love and prayer. 

Many people throughout the years have been cursing Hollywood.  I have heard many people say that nothing good comes out of Hollywood.  But throughout the years since Hollywood’s inception – God has used Hollywood in tremendous ways to bring forth epic biblical blockbusters which have impacted a culture. 

I have been in development on a major motion picture about the Jesus Movement and Lonnie Frisbee.  The script is now completed and we are believing that this movie will be completely funded and released within the next year.  We are not cursing the darkness but putting a light forth to reach those in great darkness and despair.

I want to invite you to an event which I am involved with called THE CRY HOLLYWOOD.  On Thursday, March 15, 2012, at the Gibson Amphitheatre, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA from 2:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. you are invited to come join us from a time where thousands will cry out to God to BLESS HOLLYWOOD.  The CRY Hollywood is a strategic day of worship, prayer, fasting and decreeing the blessing of God into the heart of entertainment media.  We are believing God to release His glory in a way that will ripple through the earth.  Join us in touching a city that touches the world.

There is power in our prayers.  There is power in our blessing.  Let’s take that power and loose His glory into a sphere that is impacting the world.  Let’s Cry out for Hollywood!

I Will Never Forget

This month is the 10th anniversary of the tragedy which was called 9/11.  I don’t think anyone will forget where they were when they first got the call or turned on the television to hear about it.   It was astonishing to think that this could happen in America! 

But God said that everything that could be shaken would be shaken.  We are at a time of shaking in our nation and God is calling His people back into seeking His face.  II Chronicles 7:14 states:  “If my people who are called by MY name will humble themselves and pray and seek MY face; then I will hear from heaven and HEAL THEIR LAND”. 

It’s time to call 911.  It’s time to pray to God the scriptures in Psalms 91:1.  “He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord,  He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Him will I trust.  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence, He shall cover you with His feathers and under His wings shall you trust.  His truth shall be your shield and buckler”. 

Wow!  Under His wings we will find refuge.  I don’t care what type of problem you are facing!  Just stay under the wings of the Father and He will shield you from all your troubles.  He never said it would be easy!  He just said that He would never leave you.

We also need to pray for Israel during this time.  I have been to Israel six times since 2005.  I first went to Israel at the time of the Passover in 2005.  It was a very special time for me and God really spoke to my heart.  He opened up so many doors for filming television programs for my show “Now is the Time”.

One such interview was with a messianic jewish believer named Israel Orbach.  His daughter, Jael, had been blown apart by a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.  She was supposed to have been married the next month.  In her father’s own words he said, “So instead of marrying her, I bury her”.  He is a prophet of the Lord and lives on Samuel’s mountain in Israel.  He speaks about how he met one of the 9/11 suicide bombers, Mohammed Atta, in an airport in Florida.  This was before the event happened on 911. 

Watch this program on my website now and hear Israel’s proclamation of warning to the United States!   We need to pray now more than ever before.  God is opening up so many doors!  We cannot fear  but trust that God has everything under control. 

In closing, the Lord gave me Isaiah 49 this afternoon while praying.  And the Lord spoke to me and said “I will never forget my people”.  God will not forget Israel and He will not forget you.  These are the scriptures to meditate upon that God gave me for you….NEVER FORGET!”

Isaiah 49: 8-    :  “Thus says the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages; that you may say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves.  They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in the high places.  They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for He that has mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall He guide them. 

And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.  Behold, these shall come from far: and lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful. O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord has comforted His people and will have mercy upon His afflicted.


Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?

Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget you.  Behold I have graven you upon the palms of my hands, your walls are continually before me.”

<The Lord is saying to you all, “That I have not forgotten you.  I have heard your prayers and your cries will not go unanswered.  I will never forget you and will now bring you forth into a new season of harvest.  I will avenge evil and now is the time of deliverance for my servants and those who seek my face.  Go forth in faith and do not doubt that this is the year of favor!  Declare it, Decree it, Deliver it! 

It is your season of deliverance.  I will never forget!  And I will never forget you!
