“The Joshua Generation with a double edged Sword, The Battle of Good and Evil, Perseverance and the Supernatural Weapon called Prophecy”
I see in the Spirit a GLORIOUS line of warriors marching through enemy territory, crushing the enemy under their feet.
Their determination and perseverance is unlike any other generation. They are the Joshua generation, those who will not give up or give in. And in their mouth is a double edged SWORD called PROPHECY!
Beloved Child of God. There are no “perfect” warriors. There are no “perfect” lives. Not all things will be easy nor does God say that we won’t have troubles in this life.
I know we don’t want to hear that. Jesus tells us, “In this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have OVERCOME the world.” (John 16:33)
He who says that a Believer will not suffer in this life is not reading the word. They are ignoring the fact that we have an enemy and live in a fallen world.
Look at the disciples and how they suffered so many trials in their lives including imprisonment, terrible torture, and death. Only John died of old age, but he too suffered various things, including being boiled in oil.
Apostle Paul writes that we WRESTLE not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
He tells us through the Holy Spirit to “Fight the good fight of faith.” And know this, this spiritual battle can result in natural wounds.
Wounds of the physical body, wounds of the heart, emotional trauma, financial and legal difficulties, depression and oppression.
But also likewise The Holy Spirit says this, “The natural things of this world must BOW to the Supernatural God in you!”
Hallelujah! So DO NOT feel guilty when you meet hard times. There IS a battle between good and evil. Satan and his demons are REAL. But we can stand in the Victory that Jesus won for us at the Cross.
You can fight the good fight of faith with a prophetic word written or spoken to you! Why do we love true prophetic words from our God?
Because it is a WEAPON! YES! You keep standing, Warrior of God, keep speaking the Word, keep fighting the good fight of faith, speak forth the Rhema word that the Holy Spirit speaks to you personally and through true prophets of God. PERSEVERE! The LORD is with you, Mighty Warrior!
“Beloved. Have I not commanded you, My Warrior? Be strong and courageous, be not afraid neither be dismayed for The LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
I AM giving you a Prophetic Word. It is a supernatural Weapon in your mouth. It is a Divinely Empowered Forth-telling of your destiny.
Though you may suffer through various trials, you SHALL come out victorious. I AM not a man that I would lie.
I cannot lie to you, My Child. If your God be for you, who can stand against you?
Though you may go through times of tribulation, My Shalom Peace covers you. My Hand of Protection will NEVER be lifted.
Your LORD is with you like a Dread Champion; therefore your persecutors will stumble and not prevail.
They will be utterly ashamed, because they have failed, with an everlasting disgrace that will not be forgotten.
This is Truth. This Truth will stand for all ages. I make you bold as a Lion. I make you strong and courageous like Joshua and you shall take the land.
I AM putting a word in your mouth, a sharp double edged sword, and you shall divide and conquer the kingdom of darkness.
As I AM so are you in this world. As I AM the Leader and Forerunner of My People, so are you, My Warrior.
You shall persevere through the hard times and come out MORE than a Conqueror! Yes, My Child. Here is Truth: The God of Peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.
The Grace of The LORD Jesus Christ is with you, Beloved. So shall My Word go forth from your mouth and it will not return empty but will accomplish ALL that I have promised to you
. Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says The LORD of Hosts.

JOSHUA and JESUS have the same comprehensive meaning. The former in the Hebrew, and the latter in Greek, signify SAVIOR. Joshua was so called, because eminently destined, and raised up to deliver Israel, and to conquer their enemies. Salvation could not be accomplished without suffering — divinity as such could not suffer. Hence a body was prepared for the great Redeemer. “God was manifest in the flesh.” Hence our Divine Joshua was consecrated to His office in Jordan, and His qualifications, divine and human, were conspicuous in the whole of His undertaking, Isaiah 11:1, etc. Having suffered and died on the cross, Jesus has been exalted as Lord of all His people, who own Him as their Captain, Hebrews 2:10. He leads them forth to spiritual warfare. Joshua had numerous and potent enemies to encounter. So Christ contended with numerous and powerful foes, not flesh and blood, but principalities and powers, Ephesians 6:12. Joshua always triumphed, aided by his God. So did Christ triumph over all the powers of darkness; He bruised Satan under his feet, etc., Colossians 2:13, 14; Revelation 1:18. (©Gracegems)
