The Governing Language of Heaven

Excerpts from a letter from Jane Hansen Hoyt. Go to Who is Going to Rule for the complete letter.

We are all aware of the spiritual battle raging over the nations of the world. The ancient question remains, ‘Who is going to rule? God or the devil?’ Our answer is God! Recently I spoke at the South Central, USA Regional Aglow event in Austin, TX. At the event, the Regional Director, Carol Torrance, showed a teaching from Tim Sheets, brother of Dutch Sheets, entitled ‘Overthrowing Thrones of Iniquity’.

It is a powerful teaching that identifies speaking in tongues as “the governing language of Heaven.” As Tim said, “It is about governing intercession. It’s about government. Yes, it is about many other things that are beneficial but it’s about government. It is governing intercession of the Holy Spirit.” (Click here to watch the video - Closed Captions available in all languages Overthrowing Thrones of Iniquity | Tim Sheets – YouTube

I am asking you to set aside a dedicated time each day to pray in tongues. As you do, I believe you will begin to overthrow the demonic forces who sit enthroned over regions and nations, cities and towns. I believe that together, with the Holy Spirit and the angel armies, we will see strongholds broken and the Body of Christ rising up to rule and reign as foretold in Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

The Holy Spirit has always had our attention in Aglow. As you gather as teams, or pray alone, expect to see strongholds topple as God’s governing body on earth takes their rightful place in authority. You were born for this!

  • For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. . . . take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:12-13, 17-18

Day to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem – October 3, 2021

Jerusalem, often called the epicenter of the world, is a key focal point in God’s dealing with the nations. Jerusalem is the most strategic spiritual battle front. Jerusalem is where our Lord Jesus will once again place His feet upon the earth. We join with the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem to welcome Jesus’ return saying, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

On October 3, Aglow International is partnering with millions of intercessors around the world on the Day to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. We urge everyone to add your voice to this worldwide concert of prayer.

  • Pray that God’s Shalom will fill the hearts and minds of all peoples in the region, bringing an end to terror and the shedding of innocent blood.
  • Pray for both Jew and Arab and for all the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
  • Pray for religious and political leaders, oppressed women and children, victims of terror, believers in the Land, and the young generation of Israelis and Arab Palestinians.
  • Pray with expectancy. Believe God. Believe His Promises. Believe that God is faithful to His Promises.
  • Decree from Heaven to earth that redemption will be fulfilled and hope is renewed for the day of salvation in Jerusalem.

God Has Given You Air Supremacy!

The apostolic, prophetic, praying church around the world has now established air supremacy over the enemy. You have air supremacy! Now go deal with the enemy and relentlessly drop “bombs” from the Heavenlies on him until he is no longer able to resist you. – Dutch Sheets at the Aglow Jubilee Conference.

In aerial warfare, air supremacy is the highest level of dominance when one side holds complete control of the skies. God has given us this domination over the works of the darkness in the earth. Decree the Kingdom of Heaven into the nations! Drop spiritual missiles that defeat the works of darkness on earth.
