Key to Taking the South"
By Demontae Edmonds
Prophetic Word for Atlanta, Georgia
On January 2021, at the Head of the Year service for
The Life Center in Atlanta, Georgia, the Lord had me release a prophetic word concerning the strategic importance of the Atlanta, Georgia region. God had me say that the city would be the "Pearl of Justice" and be used to help bring social change and social
justice to the state and southern region. He also had me say that it would be a "beacon of light," as key legislation would come forth from the state, and "massive movements" of change would cause other states to adopt the same laws and try to "reproduce"
what was being done in Georgia with their own territories.
I saw the voice of key Church and political leaders "multiplying and echoing" from the state of Georgia. God said that there was an "Antioch anointing" upon the city
and it would be an international prophetic voice.
Lastly, I shared that I saw a glory portal which would open up, and there would be a great release of the tangible glory of God, causing power-filled meetings in stadiums and
arenas. I said, "It has been strategic that the Lord placed the busiest airport in the world in this city and in this territory!”
The Enemy Knows Something Is Close but Has No Power
our intercessory team and ministry were stirred up to pray for God to pour out His Spirit in a greater way than ever before in the Atlanta, GA region. A few days after giving the team these prayer assignments, my wife, two daughters and I almost died in a
A crazy driver sped through a red light doing 70 mph and hit us head on. Our vehicle was damaged and totaled but our lives were spared. We had just come from a church that we were renting to hold an upcoming
service in which we were believing God to pour out mightily. Immediately we sensed, along with other prophetic voices, that it was an attack from the regional demonic principality to stop part of the assignment of God over this region.
That same night, a pastor sent me a prophetic word that "Daddy Seymour" (William Seymour), who was the recognized leader of the Azusa Street Revival, had prophesied this in 1909: "100 years from now, there will come a revival that will make this one
look pale in comparison." This means that the Body of Christ has already entered the window of prophetic fulfillment. But I find it no coincidence that William Seymour passed away on September 28, 1922 – 100 years ago! Wow!
Prophetic Summit Word
That same night, a dear friend and prophet, Dr. Black, sent me a video of another beloved man of God (Apostle Greg Hood) speaking about revival. He had given this word just days before on September 23,
At the 2022 Prophetic Summit, Apostle Greg Hood prophesied about God moving during the last quarter of 2022 and beyond. He was flanked by notable prophetic voices and apostolic leaders, Dutch and
Tim Sheets, as he released this prophetic utterance:
"'I will begin to move in Atlanta, and I'm IGNITING A REVIVAL there,' says the Lord your God, 'that will begin to ASTONISH THE NATIONS! It will begin to even shift the movement
of the altars of the enemy out of commission in that state, says the Lord!”
As I shared this with my ministry team, they were stirred even more and came under a heavy conviction to begin to seek God more fervently for
revival in the Atlanta region.
What Bob Saw
Apostle Greg's prophetic word and the visions that God had shared with us previously reminded me of a powerful and unusual vision that the legendary
seer, Prophet Bob Jones, had on July 15, 2005 while at a conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Bob Jones had a vision of a gigantic man who had fallen asleep, lying on his back and dormant, but was waking up. The giant's man name was Gulliver, like the main character
in the 1800's satirical writing Gulliver's Travels.
In the vision, the man was lying upon different parts of the United States of America. Gulliver's head was lying in Cleveland, Ohio on a place called "Jacob's field." The
heart of the man covered Columbus, Ohio. Cincinnati, Ohio was the place where his reproductive organs were. The right hand of the man stretched out to Indianapolis, Indiana and his left hand to Philadelphia. His right foot was in Nashville, TN and his left
foot was in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The giant man suddenly began to arise in the power of God and break off the yokes that held him captive. He planted both of his feet in Atlanta, Georgia. Bob prophesied, "God means to
take Ohio, then move over to Indianapolis and up into Illinois, crossing over into the east and finally standing completely upright in Atlanta." Bob also prophesied that to take Atlanta, Georgia would be to TAKE THE SOUTH!
to Bob's prophecy, it seems that the city of Atlanta has a strategic importance in opening the gateways to other states and cities in the southern region of the United States. Also, both of Gulliver's feet were planted in Atlanta, Georgia. I believe that Atlanta
is still the strategic spiritual key city to taking the South!
The Revival Scroll
My wife Jessica had an open vision the other morning upon waking up. In the vision, she saw a list numbered
1-20 written on parchment. Only three numbers on the list were highlighted. It was a catalog of God's great revivals. It seemed to her that God had ordered the list of revivals according to the level of His presence and glory present, and the impact it had
on the earth.
Number six on the list was "Wales." The Welsh Revival was one of the largest revivals during the 20th century, which happened in Wales in 1904. The impact of this revival spread to other nations, especially across
Europe. Many believe that the prayers of the Welsh for America were a determining factor in the outpouring that happened just two years later in Azusa Street. During this revival, in less than one year, more than 100,000 souls received Jesus as Lord, and many
of them went to the mission field or back into their own respective nations to spread God's fire.
Next, highlighted in the vision, was number three, which read "Azusa." The Azusa Street Revival, as it is commonly termed,
was a powerful outpouring of God's Spirit that took place in California starting in 1906. There was a great emphasis on the restoration of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and the presence of God. People traveled from all around the world
to have their hearts set ablaze by the fire of God present at these tremendous meetings. Unusual manifestations and unprecedented, creative miracles took place at these meetings which lasted about eight years. This revival was the key contributor to the spread
of Pentecostalism globally.
Finally, my wife saw the number one spot and it read "Atlanta"! God did not provide details within this vision, but we both felt it was a prophetic promise that God wanted to fulfill the prophetic
words over this city and pour out something GREATER than Azusa Street or Wales. HALLELUJAH!
Prayers for Atlanta
1. Pray that the Lord will release an outpouring of God in Atlanta that will
"astonish the nations" according to the word of the Lord.
2. Pray that even as the Civil Rights Movement was ignited and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, God's Spirit and movement of revival and outpouring will be ignited there.
3. Pray for the upcoming election, that the will of God will prevail on all levels of government.
4. Pray that God-anointed vessels of honor will stand in the power and presence of God to reap the harvest of souls in this region.
5. Pray that demonic altars and strongholds in the Atlanta region – especially in the areas of media, government and entertainment – will be demolished.
6. Pray for an unprecedented magnitude of glory to be poured out
upon the region!
7. Pray that mighty warrior angels en masse will be released to bind up demonic forces and remove spiritual blindness from the minds of those who have not yet believed the Gospel.
8. Pray that Jesus
will be glorified in the Atlanta region.
