Like never before in recent times; there is ongoing in this season a loud cry from Heaven as the Prophet Isaiah encountered saying; “Who will go for Me?”
“Also I heard the voice of The LORD, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me!” Isaiah 6:8.
A cry is going out to The Body of Christ; The LORD JESUS CHRIST calling and asking, who will take a seat in The LORD’S Council of War, to stand firm and fierce against the onslaught of darkness stifling the voice of the messengers of righteousness.
At a time when Israel was in dire straits; and had been oppressed and plundered by the Philistines for forty years; an Angel of The LORD visited Manoah and his wife and gave them the promise of a child who will “begin to deliver” the nation Israel from the oppression of the Philistines
“And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and The LORD delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years. And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the Angel of The LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing, for, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.” Judges 13:1-5.
The profound promise of a deliverer who would begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines; came in the child Samson; who came in the anointing of might as a man of war.
The Scriptures are replete with revelations that shows The LORD raising up men anointed with The Spirit of Might as men of war in times when a nation falls into oppression.
The King David is another significant revelation.
The Nation Israel was besieged on several fronts during the time of Samuel the Prophet up to the time of the leadership of Saul in Israel, so bad, that Goliath stood publicly uttering defiling words against the nation and the armies of Israel.
“And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them. And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.” 1 Samuel 17:23-24.
To address this; The LORD raised up David; a profoundly anointed man of war; who in turn raised up a company of mighty men; through whom The LORD brought the nation of Israel from one victory to another.
“These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of The LORD concerning Israel” 1 Chronicles 11:10.
Also, the Prophet Moses was one anointed with The Spirit of Might as a man of war sent to deliver Israel from The Egyptians.
The LORD intended to make of Israel, a mighty Nation through whom the promise land will be conquered.
For The Scriptures reveal of Moses;
“And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.” Deuteronomy 34:7.
There is such a calling that comes from The LORD JESUS CHRIST to sit in a warrior seat for The Kingdom.
Individuals, Assemblies, and even Nations when invited by The LORD JESUS to be a Warring Company are tasked with co-laboring to see lives, territories and inheritances lost to the operations of darkness redeemed back to The Kingdom Of The LORD JESUS.
Like King David fighting against Amalekites who raided Ziklag, the Warring Company of The LORD is tasked with pursuing, overtaking and recovering all.
“And David inquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, “Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all”.” 1 Samuel 30:8.
This is the call of the hour from The LORD JESUS CHRIST.
“Who will go for Me?”
There is a cry from The LORD to assemble a Warring Company, a people who will be granted insight into the Kingdom’s Map of lost souls, territories and inheritances.
A people to be trained, and raised up by The LORD JESUS and anointed with might as men of war, to deliver souls, territories and inheritances from the bondage of oppression.
A people whose walk with The LORD as they respond to this call from The LORD will bring them great victories against the strongholds of Delilah and the spirit of blindness that contends against the Warring Company; and those anointed to war in The Kingdom.
Samson, King David, and the Israelites on the war path to the promise land; all had to contend against two ancient strongholds [Delilah and blindness] that have always stood in the way against those called and anointed to war in The Kingdom.
The experience of Samson as revealed in The Scriptures reveals that in the display of incredible might and victory as he began to deliver Israel; two major scenarios orchestrated to take out this anointed man of war — the luring and seduction of Delilah, and attack against the sight of Samson.
The luring and seduction of Delilah is intended to cause a straying away by transgression, leaving the man of war vulnerable to be attacked by the spirit of blindness that shuts his vision.
“And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death; That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man. And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand. And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him”. Judges 16:16-19.
What is a Warrior; an Archer; or a Sniper without sight? Such a man becomes a hired assassin.
“But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house.” Judges 16:21.
Interestingly, King David, another anointed man of war, also experienced two significant moments orchestrated against his calling as a man of war.
First; his response to seeing Uriah’s wife when she bathed, which made him to stray; and much later, second, his acting blindly without prophetic insight and revelation, in numbering the army of Israel.
“And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.” 2 Samuel 11:2-4.
“And David’s heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the LORD, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.” 2 Samuel 24:10.
More significantly; the nation of Israel faced similar circumstance against these ancient strongholds as they advanced as a Warring Company into the promised land.
The Prophet Balaam, having failed to put a curse on the nation Israel through the urging of Balak went on to teach Balak discretely how to lead Israel [the advancing War Company] how to fail.
“And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle. And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against The LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.” Numbers 31:14-16.
Can you believe that?
Balaam didn’t succeed in placing a curse on Israel despite all the sacrifices and contrary altars he raised; but he knew how to make them fall as The Scripture revealed.
Balaam counseled them on how to make Israel commit a trespass against The LORD; so that The LORD would by HIMSELF judge Israel.
Isn’t that stunning!
Balaam knew what it would take to cripple an anointed man, company or nation of war — he told them to send strange women into their camp — unleashing a Delilah spirit that makes them vulnerable to the spirit of blindness that cuts short prophetic vision and revelation.
The Prophet Moses was wroth in that Scripture with the host, and the captains because they saved the women alive; that were used as Delilahs to lead Israel to transgress against The LORD.
Individuals, Assemblies and Key Nations are being called up in this season to be brought up as an International Warring Company of The LORD JESUS — through whom The Kingdom will pursue, overtake and recover all – lost souls, lost territories and lost inheritances.
The sound going forth by the inspiration of The LORD JESUS CHRIST is also coming with forewarning saying; there are Delilahs and blinding spirits on the way as ancient strongholds; with mission to cut short the assignment of the warring companies being called up in this hour.
There are those who have heard the sound of the call to war.
There are those who will now discern the sound they have been hearing as the sound of the call to war.
Discernment must rise in your heart; for when the trial of Celilah and the blinding spirit arise; as you walk in the path of war; let strength rise in your inner man to gain conquest; that you may be granted to sit in warring assembly of The LORD JESUS CHRIST being raised up in this Hour.
The cry goeth forth: “Who will go for Me?”
“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me!“ Isaiah 6:8 emphasis added.
A Righteous Company is rising! They shall be known as The War Council of The LORD JESUS.
