I hear your cries, Beloved One. “How much longer will this go on?” is the cry of your heart. Please believe Me, Dear Child, when I say that I AM working all things out for your good.
My Word and My plans for you shall stand in the end. The devil is a liar and the father of lies. I AM Truth. This is truth, Beloved: NO weapon formed against you shall prosper.
I will not stand for it. I AM your Abba Father. I AM the Righteous Judge. When the enemy comes in, like a FLOOD, the Spirit of the Lord raises up a standard against him. Be not afraid, Dear One.
Only believe. My Standard flying over your head says, “Come no farther.” I have arisen from My Place of Majesty and said, “ENOUGH!”
I AM your Strong Defender. I have DESTROYED the works of the devil. I AM He who rides the heavens to your help, and through the skies in majesty. I AM on your side, My Child, NOTHING shall stand against you.
Hear the WAR trumpets, My Beloved, for victory shall certainly come and it shall be delayed no longer.
God’s setting up or giving a banner imports His presence and protection and aid extended to His people.
Standard/ Banner definition: A lofty signal-flag, not carried about, but stationary. It was usually erected on a mountain or other lofty place. As soon as it was seen the war-trumpets were blown ( Psalms 60:4; Isaiah 5:26;11:12; 3:2;18:3;30:17; Jeremiah 4:6 21; Ezekiel 27:7).
“There is none like our God, Who rides the heavens to your help, And through the skies in His majesty. 27 The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the Everlasting Arms,” Deuteronomy 33:26.
“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him,” Isaiah 59:19.
“Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, That the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it ; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith,” Habakkuk 2:2-4.
“As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took His seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of His head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before Him. Thousands upon thousands attended Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened,” Daniel 7:9-10.
“Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved His appearing,” 2 Timothy 4:8.
