Maine – The Womb of the Nation
The following is the transcribed message for Maine given by Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets while on the 50 State Tour to Maine, July, 2004. A book has been published by Destiny Image called “Releasing the Prophetic Destiny of a Nation” by Dutch Sheets and Church Pierce that contains the full message for each of the 50 States. This message is transcribed from a recorded audio tape recorded live.

“…lift up your heads oh you gates; be lifted up you everlasting doors, and the King of Glory shall come in. Who is this King of Glory? He is the Lord of hosts, strong and mighty in battle. He is the King of Glory!” (Psalm 24)
In our nation, Maine is the East gate. It’s the furthest point of this nation where east exists. If we could do one thing as a prophetic act…we could open up the east gates for the glory of God to begin to come in. I believe once the East Gate is open, the glory begins to go all across the land.
There has been great resistance, great conflict in this state over the land. The land has been in waste many times because of the resistance that has occurred within it. It’s almost like here at the east gate called Maine, there is a resistant force that is saying this (gate) shall not open.
We’re here to say the east gate WILL open up. “Lift up your heads oh you gates; be lifted up you everlasting doors, the King of Glory SHALL come in! Prophetically, God will develop a strategy for Maine over these verses and He will release it to this state because the King of Glory SHALL come in. The King is coming to Maine!
The Lord of Hosts, Lord Sabaoth, wants to come into this nation and it appears to me that God is saying, (in order) for the Lord Sabaoth to come in, the East gate must open up. Therefore, the war of this land to be won, there must be some sort of breakthrough in Maine – a visible breakthrough, a breakthrough that can be seen, a breakthrough that can be recorded. Something must be seen in Maine that opens up for the Lord of Hosts to sweep across the nation.
Psalm 110:1-3 is a word for Maine. “The Lord said to my Lord, sit at My right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; in the beauty of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.”
There’s a warfare cry going on out of Maine. There’s a new authority, there’s a rod coming forth out of Maine. In our nation, this state is the first place the sun touches. In other words, before the sun touches the rest of the nation, it touches Maine first.
In our nation, this state is the first place the sun touches. In other words, before the sun touches the rest of the nation, it touches Maine first. As a matter of fact, that makes Maine the “womb of the morning.”That makes Maine that place of the breaking of the new day. That makes Maine the place that will war for the Son of righteousness to come in with Healing in His wings. That makes Maine the place that will birth that which will cause the sun to rise upon this nation in the days ahead as opposed to the sun setting on our nation in the days ahead.
The Lord would say to you, Maine, I have chosen you for such a time as this. It is your youth that will refresh you as dew. I have chosen you for such a time as this for you will war at the gate and there will be a Kingdom anointing that falls in Maine that represents My Kingdom plan that no other place in this land has seen. You are the womb of My morning. …I am anointing you with the breaking anointing upon you and before the sun would set on this nation My Son will rise over Maine.”
Dutch Sheets – Maine is the Womb of this nation
This part of the nation is the womb of the nation and if we can open the womb, revival will come to the nation. A train of revival God will be ushered in by the vehicle of His. Something is going to happen here in Maine that will spark something more for the nation and we will be a beginning of something.
For Jacob, the breakthrough happened at dawn. I’m going to say it this way, “The breakthrough came in Maine. The birthing came at the sunrise. It’s a new day. The Northeast is the womb of the nation. And if you can get the womb open a birth will come.” I felt He is saying, “I have brought you to the womb of the nation to bring it forth. You’re already pregnant. I want to bring forth something. There’s a war going on to keep a nation from being born and I’m trying to break the water. I’m trying to pour it forth so a birth can happen and we can come forth and see the face of God and America, Maine (and) New England can say, ‘He is My God’, again.”
In Psalm 110 the phrase, “womb of the morning” is followed with “thy youth are to thee like dew.” He talks about birthing and then goes right to the youth. Volunteer soldiers – Nazarites. Part of what we’re birthing here…part of what God is going to launch from Maine is this youth revival. In 1992 the Lord spoke to me that revival is coming to America and I felt He said to me that it will begin with the youth.

Psalm 133 – “How good and how pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows His blessing, even life forevermore.”
The dew of Mt. Hermon in Israel rests upon the ground early in the morning. As the sun shines on the dew it begins to rise and form clouds. The wind then takes the clouds across the land and it brings rain and refreshing to the rest of the nation. What God does here in Maine will be carried by the wind of the Holy Spirit to rain upon America?
