I heard in the Spirit, “Now is the time to “Circle the wagons!”
I knew what it meant because of the movies! But I also knew there was more to it.
It is similar to the military term,”to dig in.” It means to gather together; to stand and prepare to repel an expected attack.
The enemy wants to “capture” our SUPPLY TRAINS. He wants to STOP the flow of the HOLY SPIRIT.
He desires to separate the Body of Christ. He wants to prey upon the most vulnerable and weak.
But our Commander is urging us to gather together in a circle of His love. We must unite and not bicker over trivial things.
We need each other. We must pray for one another and nurse our wounded warriors. And where two or more are gathered together in His name, there JESUS is in the midst of us.
We shall be an IMPENETRABLE FORCE against evil in these last days. Imagine the FIRE POWER we have as ONE.
Jesus prayed that we be one as He and the Father are One. And I hear Holy Spirit saying, “Lift your eyes and see those who are gathered with you, the Mighty Angels, the chariots of FIRE that encamp around you.
Do not be afraid. There are MANY more for you than against you, My Child.
As you come together in unity, so also do the angels gather together to fight for you. The devil cannot stand against this united front.
Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the Glory of God?
Oh yes, Beloved. This gathering shall be like none before it or after it. Nothing can stop My Glory Train!
My Glorious Fire Power shall be unleashed against all the powers of the enemy through My end-time army. And NOTHING shall be impossible to you!”
Circle the Wagons: Unite in defense of a common interest. Similar to the more common phrase “dig in”. Basically it is a military term meaning adopt a defensive posture and prepare to repel an expected attack.
Probably since the wheel was invented, armies have been followed by a supply train, carrying everything needed for a campaign, rather than a battle (which the soldier would carry himself).
Capturing the enemy’s supply train sometimes called a wagon train was a major advantage. Often you could use the supplies yourself, else you could burn them and deny them to the enemy.
Even the knowledge or suspicion that their supply train was being attacked could be enough for some less disciplined troops to run from the battle to defend the wagons.
The wagons also carried the women and children. Putting the wagons in a defensive circle gave those tasked with defending it (often the “walking wounded”) a better chance of holding out until they could be reinforced.
When camping for the night the wagons would be circled to defend against surprise night attacks.
When most soldiers were equipped with firearms, the cover and steady aiming points provided by the wagons gave the defenders quite an advantage.
“Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them,” Matthew 18:18-20.
“Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha,” 2 Kings 6:15-17.
“Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”” John 11:40.
