I heard a sound like a Drum. Over and over I heard the beat of a strong Drum.
I asked Father what this was and He said it is the, “War Drums of Spirit! The Drums are sounding and the enemy is fleeing in terror!
It is the Rhythm of the Lion of Judah! It is the Sound of Victory! It is the cry of, “It is Finished!”
The battle has been won! His Warriors are singing and shouting His praises and I saw angels joining in and the heavens and earth are shaking with this outpouring of Glorious Sound!
“Beloved. If the War Drum gives a sound that has no meaning, then no one will get ready to fight.
But I hear your pure worship in Spirit and in Truth! Your worship is shaking the kingdom of darkness to its very core. Shout unto your God with the Voice of Triumph!
Shout that your victory has been accomplished! The world calls you crazy but I call it crazy faith!
Hear the Drumbeat of War. The enemy hears it and flees! It is the Sound of Heaven touching earth, the Battle Cry of the Redeemed!
Shout for joy at your victory and raise a Banner in the Name of your God. I save My Anointed; I answer you from My Holy Heaven with the saving power of My Right Hand.
Hear the Rhythm of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! You Praise shall STILL the avenger!
Your Praise has come before Me, all of Heaven is joining in! It is a Glorious Noise shaking the Atmospheres!
There is POWER in your praise and worship! Once more I will shake not only the earth, but heaven as well so that the only the unshakable will remain.
Spiritual things are only understood spiritually, My Child. Sing to Me a new song; play skillfully with a shout of joy!
From My Throne proceeds lightnings and thunderings and VOICES!
Hear the Footsteps of the Lion of Judah. We are in perfect cadence, Beloved. You are in step with Me, because we are One in the Spirit.
The War Drums of Heaven have sounded. The Victory has been won at The Cross! I give you more Grace. I give Grace to the humble.
Submit yourself then, to Me, Beloved. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you! Get ready, My Soldier of the Cross.
March out with BOLDNESS! Do not be afraid of them, for The LORD your God Himself will fight for you.
The Battle has been won! The Righteous are as bold as a Lion. Make a JOYFUL NOISE!
The earth and the heavens are shaking! You are marching in My Triumphal Procession!”

CADENCE : The beat, time, or measure of rhythmical motion or activity. Military: cadence of the soldiers marching together. The steady cadence of the drums. A rhythmic sequence or flow of sounds.
WAR DRUMS : Military drummers have played a crucial role in warfare throughout history. Soldiers marched to battle to the sound of the drums and used the beat to regulate the loading and re-loading of their weapons during the battle. Drummers were also used to raise morale during the fight. The snare drum was taken into use in 13th century Europe, to rally troops, and to demoralize the enemy. Employed both to direct and galvanize the troops. Different beats guided the soldiers in different ways.
DRUM : The Hebrew word “tof” represents a hand-held frame-drum, a hoop-shaped drum with a diameter wider than its depth and well known as a popular membranophone (percussion instrument) from artistic representations preserved from the ancient Near East. The elements of drum, dance, and song constitute a musical celebration of military victory. The celebratory nature of the genre is extended, in prophetic eschatology, to the rejoicing that accompanies God’s restoration of the land. This is particularly true in a series of psalms that depict victory processions and celebrations in praise of YHWH.
