Beloved. Hear the sound of the trumpet in the distance, for the Day of the Lord is near.
Yahweh utters His voice before His army. Raise high the Burning Torch you carry and unsheathe your Sword of Light. Let the Bridegroom go forth from His Chamber and the Bride from her hiding place.
“I have given you My Torch and My Sword, My Child. Sparks of fire leap forth and destroy the works of darkness. Your Sword of the Spirit cuts off the head (authority) of the evil one. Open your mouth and speak forth My Word, Dear One.
Your enemies shall cower before you. For your salvation through Me burns like a Torch in this dark and evil world. I AM is your Pillar of Fire by night when you rest and as you move forward by day, I AM turns the evil deeds of darkness into Light.
Fear not, for My Glory is your rearguard. Your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. I have redeemed you from the hand of the enemy. My Spirit in you burns brighter than the sun, destroying the works of the devil. Streams of Fire go before Me, consuming all of your enemies.
I AM your Shield and Helper and your Glorious Sword. I make your feet like hinds feet, You shall tread upon their heights. You are My Mighty Army, the likes of which have never been seen.
Rise up, My Warrior Bride, in the power of MY might, for I have called you forth for such a time as this. The year of My Redeemed has come.”
