Scriptures and Key Points:


  • Advent is defined as the arrival of a notable person or event.
  • Hanukkah reminds us that even in the darkest moments there is still light.


Matthew 5:16 NKJV Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.


Isaiah 60:1-3 NKJV Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.


  • God is the lighthouse that leads us through the darkness.
  • Historically there are moments, people, times, and places where the supernatural manifestation of God comes.
  • We can’t be afraid to speak the truth in love seasoned with grace.
  • Biblical masculinity celebrates the gifts of women.
  • Lou prayed, “How can I turn America back to God?”
  • With God, there is always another chapter to the story.
  • If it’s God, we really need to respond.


History shows us that it was a woman praying for her son that maybe saved America.


Jeremiah 9:20-21 NKJV Yet hear the word of the Lord, O women, and let your ear receive the word of His mouth; Teach your daughters wailing, and everyone her neighbor a lamentation. For death has come through our windows, has entered our palaces, to kill off the children—no longer to be outside! And the young men—no longer on the streets!


  • The king’s daughter rips off her helmet and declares, “I am no man!” Then destroys the enemy. (The Return of the King)


“There comes a moment of time, a defining moment, when one day is too late or one day is too early. There comes a moment when you must push Go! and risk everything.” – Mark Batterson, Chase the Lion


Esther 4:13-14 NKJV And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”


  • The mama bears are going to come and fight for their children!


In regard to the historic Jesus movement, God said, “I raised up a million women to cry out for their children. And I answered them.”


  • The delta factor is the leader of a million.


Revelation 12:11 NKJV And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.


  • On the Day of Atonement, the blood is not just applied to individual guilt, but to national guilt as well.


Luke 1:17 NKJV He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”


  • What God is pouring out is stronger than the rebellion.
  • It’s a historic time for the mamas to go and fight for the soul of this nation.
  • “I want to save my people, but I have no one to save me.”
  • The walls of prayer were never meant to be walls, but to be doors.
  • The number 12 represents Heaven’s perfection.

Matthew 9:20-22 NKJV And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment…


  • This is a troubled pregnancy, but the birth will come.


Isaiah 37:3 NKJV And they said to him, “Thus says Hezekiah: ‘This day is a day of trouble and rebuke and blasphemy; for the children have come to birth, but there is no strength to bring them forth.


  • It takes men who are secure in their identity in Christ, not being intimidated by the gifts of women, but to cherish and celebrate them.


God will bring forth His promises and plans as we do our part to give strength to deliver.


Jeremiah 9:17-18 NKJV Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for skillful wailing women, that they may come. Let them make haste and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run with tears, and our eyelids gush with water.


  • This isn’t a separation of genders; this is family.
  • Mordecai adopted and mobilized fasting and prayer for Esther.
  • Every man needs to be a Mordecai!
  • The nation and generation that adopts transgenderism historically collapses within that generation.
