I heard the Lord say that He is doing a quick work in the body of Christ in preparation for the harvest that is ripe even now! He said that He is shaking the things from the Church that will not stand in days ahead!
He said that He is shaking old mindsets that will hold back the move of God that will bring forth the reformation of the Church!
“I will have a Church that the gates of Hell will not prevail against in this hour!: AM looking for a few good men and women!
I AM looking for those that will obey!
I AM looking for the remnant!
I AM looking for Gideon’s army!
I AM looking for those who will not fear!”
Fear on assignment
There are spirits of fear that have been sent out from hell on a mission to you, but the Lord said 365 times in the word of God “fear not!” This is the only weapon that the enemy has and if you stop because of it, he will try and paralyze you and get you off of the wall, and you will not accomplish your assignment that God has given!
So do not yield to the fear!
Coco and the spirit of fear
Some of you remember when Coco [dog] was acting so strange a while back, and that was at a time when there was so much going on in our life with my brother in the hospital and all of that. She would not eat or look at us without looking afraid of us. She would hide under the bed. You have to understand that this was not at all like her. She would shake if you tried to pick her up. Suddenly the Lord spoke to me after many days of this and said to cast the Spirit of fear off of her. So I did and she immediately came back to herself!
Then today, my husband on his way to go to work this morning, set her outside and she usually comes back in and sleeps with me for a while. When she didn’t come in the bedroom, I figured something was wrong, so I went out and she had that look of fear on her face again and when I picked her up she shook and stiffened up. The Lord quickly reminded me what to do, so I laid her down on the bed, laid my hands on her and said, “In the Name of Jesus,Spirit of fear go now!” Immediately, again, she came to herself and stopped shaking! Glory to God!
I believe that we are now quicker to recognize, strategize, and then stop the rise of these spirits
I believe that as we have been going through these things that God has been giving us the strategies to overcome these distractions quicker and with much more pin pointed accuracy! He doesn’t let anything go to waste in our life… not even the work of the enemy! So He uses them for teaching moments. He is working a more exceeding weight of glory in us as he does! (I think this makes the devil pretty stupid actually) I tell you, as children of the most high God, we cannot lose if we do not quit!
The Lion lives in you and has prevailed!
Now, we all know this kind of stuff, who have been around Charismatic circles very long, but I am telling you, that we must arise and speak when these things come at us, because what is happening is that they are trying to sidetrack our days mission from the Lord!
“Do not allow these spirits of fear paralyze to you……. Not even for one minute!
You have been given the authority over this, now take it immediately! Do not second guess yourself now! Know that I AM with you! Yes the Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed and He lives in you! Now roar at the enemy! Let him know tht you do not believe his lies as you praise me in the face of fear!”
Fear is a lie!
“Yes counteract this spirit of fear by your faith, as you stand singing and shouting and declaring My word in faith! Your faith in my finished work will bring heavens angels, and the King of Glory into your situation, quickly, and then arise and go forth and finish your assignment! Yes finish your assignment that I have given each of you! I T IS TIME TO FEAR NOT!”
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish,” Isaiah 41:10-11.
“But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make him afraid,” Jeremiah 46:27.
