I heard in the The Spirit the sound of something “striking the earth,” and I saw Angels with “mattahs” or staffs in their hands.
They were hitting the earth rhythmically over and over and causing the earth to shake. There was great confusion in the enemy’s camp!
I hear the sound of the “Whooshing” of their Wings that almost sound like a jet engine taking off!
The Spiritual Warfare is real, Beloved. Father is sending Angels to “break up” and confuse the enemy’s forces that have “dug in.” He is breaking cycles and casting down every high thing that exalts itself against your God.
The Vibrations of Heaven are tearing down strongholds! His Rod and Staff they comfort you, Child of God. He is changing atmospheres with the Rod of Jesse, who is Jesus, declaring, “It is Finished!”
“Beloved. Hear the Sound of the Glorious Shaking. You have nothing to fear My Child. Only the enemy shall flee in terror from My Mighty Ones.
There are many more for you than against you. The Rod of Jesse has come. The Branch has blossomed, My Rod and Staff, they shall comfort you.
My Angels are striking the ground with My Righteous Scepter; the Seven Spirits go out into all the earth. It is by My Authority that the prince of the power of the air shall be dislodged and removed.
ALL authority in heaven and on earth belongs to Me, Beloved. Once more I will shake not only the Earth, but Heaven as well. The unshakable shall remain.
You stand upon The Rock, you shall not be moved. Join in with all of Heaven, strike the ground with your praise and worship! No evil can withstand this powerful Oneness!
Strike the ground! It is the Force of Unity, the Voice of One. It is the Sound of the Ages.
It is The Kingdom of Heaven is drawing near, even now and forevermore. Your intercession is shaking the kingdom of darkness, My Warrior!
And I shall smite the earth with the Rod of My Mouth and with the Breath of My Lips shall your God slay the wicked ones. Even the demons shall submit to you in My Name.
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing will by any means harm you! Strike the Ground, My Child!
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says The LORD of Hosts.
MATTAH : The Hebrew word for “Staff” is ‘matteh,’ sometimes spelled ‘mattah.’ It is used as an instrument of worship and intercession. It’s defined as a branch, tribe, rod, staff, or standard. (Strong’s Hebrew H4294).
The Rod is a symbol of authority. We are not ascribing glory to the staff, but to the One whose power was revealed through the staff. It was, in essence, the power of God effecting change. In the hands of rulers and kings, the staff was called a scepter, which, again, symbolizes power and authority.
A mattah can be used in worship and in warfare. I believe that the Lord is taking us to a new level were the line between worship and intercession will no longer be seen.
One of the Hebrew words for intercession is paga. Paga means- “to encounter, make intercession, strike, touch (as a boundary).”
Strongholds are broken in the spirit through the prophetic authority released as you strike the ground. You are taking the land that the Lord has promised us and making declarations over the nations.
I know that we, the Bride of Christ, have only begun to understand the depths of the Spirit to which our Passionate Bridegroom desires to take us.

“The SCEPTER shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between His feet, until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.” Genesis 49:10
“And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; (This is talking about JESUS) And shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears: but with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and HE SHALL SMITE THE EARTH WITH THE ROD OF HIS MOUTH, and with the BREATH OF HIS LIPS shall He slay the wicked ones And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins.” Isaiah 11:1-5 emphasis added.
“The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in Your name.” So He told them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will by any means harm you.…” Luke 10:17-19
“ that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth, but heaven as well.” The words “Once more” signify the removal of what can be shaken — that is, created things — so that the unshakable may remain.” Hebrews 12:26-27
