Beloved. Hear the sound of the trumpet, for the Day of the Lord is near. Raise high the Burning Torch you carry and unsheathe your Sword of Light.
I have given you My Torch and My Sword. Sparks of fire leap forth and destroy the works of darkness. Your Sword of the Spirit cuts off the head (authority) of the evil ones.
Open your mouth and speak forth My Word. For your salvation through Me burns like a Torch in this dark and evil world. I AM your pillar of Fire by night. I turn the darkness into Light before you for you are a Child of the day and not of the night. My Light shines brighter than the sun all around you, destroying the works of the devil.
I go before you in streams of Fire, consuming all of your enemies. My Glory is your rearguard. 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.
