Keepers of the Flame founder Linda Willoughby has a vision for breakthrough in Kentucky.
The Preacher said, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). So what season is Kentucky in? And what role do Kentucky’s intercessors have to play in this prophetic season?
First, let’s look where God has brought us from. We’ve passed through a season of hearing the prophets declare God’s will over Kentucky. We’ve responded to the sound of the trumpet call. We’ve come through a season of shouting—a shout that is bringing down walls, breaking down barriers, and removing the limits the enemy erected against the Lord in Kentucky.
Yet there is more intercessory work to do. Indeed, God is calling for unprecedented unity among the intercessors in Kentucky. Consider these Scriptures:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the Lord commanded the blessing—Life forevermore” (Psalm 133:1-3 NKJV).
“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you[a] all.” (Ephesians 4:1-6 NKJV).
“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us” (Romans 8:33-34).
So, again, what season is Kentucky in? And what role do Kentucky’s intercessors have to play in this prophetic season?
The Season of the Breaker Anointing
We are entering the season of the breaker anointing—which will require unity among intercessors in Kentucky. We believe this breaker anointing will spread like a wildfire across the United States and even beyond once intercessors get the revelation and pray it through in their states.
What is the breaker anointing? The Lord shows us through the words He gave to the prophet Micah:
“I will surely assemble all of you, O Jacob, I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together like sheep of the fold, like a flock in the midst of their pasture; They shall make a loud noise because of so many people. The one who breaks open will come up before them; They will break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it; Their king will pass before them, with the Lord at their head” (Micah 2:12-13)
Let’s dig out this revelation. Strong’s Hebrew Interlinear explains what the breaker is: “primitive root; to break out (in many applications, direct and indirect, literal and figurative):--X abroad, (make a) breach, break (away, down, -er, forth, in, up), burst out, come (spread) abroad, compel, disperse, grow, increase, open, press, scatter, urge.”
What this means is the breaker—this breaker anointing—will break down all opposition to God’s will. With the opposition broken, we can walk through the door to freedom, moving out of the bondage the enemy has kept Kentucky in for decades. Just as the Lord, the King of Israel, brought the Israelites out of the land of Egypt, so He will break the forces that have hindered a move of God in Kentucky—and this nation. He will set the captives free through this breaker anointing!
Prophetic Sound: Running Horses
Since November 2013, Linda Willoughby, leader of this movement in Kentucky, has been seeking and waiting on the Lord over His plans for the state. Often, she has heard the sound of running horses in front of her dwelling place. At first, she did not know what to think. She got up and ran to the door to see where the running horses were coming from and where they were going—but there was nothing there.
“I have heard this now for a few months, and it sounds like many horses running together,” she explains. “I said ‘OK, Lord you have to tell me why I am hearing horses and why here?’ I told a minister friend what was happening and she said she had heard them before. And then it came to me about the war horses. The Holy Spirit showed me to go to a book, given to me by a lady I met a few years back who felt impressed I should have it.”
Prophetic Words Over Kentucky
That book is “Releasing Prophetic Destiny of a Nation” by Dutch Sheets and Chuck Pierce. In that book, Linda found these words:
Kentucky April 19-20, 2004 - "Our 50-state conference theme was "The Trumpet has sounded-- it’s Time to Run with the Horses!" The back-drop on the stage (from which we led the meetings) affirmed that theme with a picture of a silver trumpet that appeared to be blowing numerous galloping horses out of the bell as it sounded! Only a couple of weeks before the Kentucky Derby, we could actually sometimes hear and feel the pounding of horses’ hoofs as we were led into incredible times of prophetic worship with Ray Hughes and Selah."
Barbara Yoder declared:
“Kentucky is on the verge of it’s biggest change. God is loosing the horses, the runners, and the riders in Kentucky. They will ride and run through this nation once again. There is a breaking out that is going to occur in Kentucky. It is a first fruit state for revival."
"Lexington is the stable for the warhorses. From here the horses will be released across the nation. Get ready, I am calling you to war like you cannot imagine!”
Chuck Pierce declared on May first the day of the Kentucky Derby, "the sound of the horses would release the movement of war in the earth like never before. There would also be a supernatural release to receive new strength and to move forward. The Lord said that out of Kentucky would come a sound that would cause the nations to come into conflict, but the Bride will rise up and it will be a call of freedom.”
Dutch Sheets declared was: “Discerning of spirits will be released to God’s people for there is a strong, strong deliverance anointing coming to the state of Kentucky. Once again, he said a strong, strong, strong spirit of deliverance is coming.”
The Time Is Now
Intercessors of Kentucky, it is time to move. The Lord wants to bring the body of Christ together and enter into worship and to weep between the porch and the altar to allow the breaker to come forth through us to break through every evil force that has been stopping the move of God in Kentucky.
Let us leave you with these two Scriptures:
“But if they are prophets, and if the word of the Lord is with them, let them now make intercession to the Lord of hosts, that the vessels which are left in the house of the Lord, in the house of the king of Judah, and at Jerusalem, do not go to Babylon” (Jeremiah 27:18 NKJV).
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-4 NKJV).
