The Lord sent me to Missouri to my cousin’s wife’s funeral the nineteenth of June. I checked into a hotel in Neosho, Newton County, Missouri and in the early hours of the next morning, about 3:00 AM, the power of God was in me in a way like I have never experienced before. It was obviously a night vision—I was asleep but I was aware of what I was saying and doing. I was praying that the power of God would be upon the land. As I prayed I made a motion with my right hand, bringing my hand back over my head in an overhand motion, praying the power of God would be on each state. Over and over, I prayed, throwing my hand toward the ground as if with great force. I knew in my spirit I was praying for the power of God to be on each of the 48 states on the mainland in America and each time I could see land. This went on for about an hour until I awoke, weeping. I continued to weep, for about 30 minutes, my face wet with the tears that kept running from my eyes.
What I find most interesting—after I woke up, I began thinking about John Paddock, a seventh great-grandfather from my mother’s paternal lineage, born in Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts. My great-great grandparents, Newell and Sarah (Paddock) Miller, are buried in Newton County, as are my grandparents, Frank and Minnie Miller, just a few miles from Neosho. I was thinking how John Paddock’s father passed away when he was “about five years,” and his mother gave him to another person to raise. After his father died, his mother consented to a promise John’s father made to Thomas Willett, to allow John to “be at his disposing and under his guidance as his own child.” Thomas Willett later became the first mayor of New York after England took possession of it from the Dutch.
As I was considering this, God began reminding me of when I was five years old, on a small gravel pile outside my mother’s window and I was talking to the Lord. He then ministered to me that when I was five, He adopted me, out there on that gravel pile. God also showed me, not only did He adopt me, but He has adopted those that are with me and continues to adopt children unto Him.
As God continued to talk to me, He told me that He had given to me and to those with me, the United States of America—to establish His kingdom in this nation, the 48 states of the mainland and like Joshua and Israel, no man can take it from me.
It is significant to me that God sent me to Neosho to give me that vision.
