“Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of The LORD, what he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon.” Numbers 21:14
In The Kingdom, there is an administration of The Holy Spirit in advancing the righteous purposes of The LORD through stewarding “The Wars of The LORD.”
Likewise, there are those identified, chosen and raised up by The LORD, and entrusted with the holy calling of The LORD and sent in significant times and seasons into The Wars of The LORD.
The Scriptures reveal the significant encounter Moses, The Prophet of God had with The LORD where he saw the bush that burned with fire but was not consumed — the encounter that revealed a significant calling from The LORD to Moses to serve and fulfill The Wars of The LORD.
“And The LORD said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Exodus 3:7-10
The Wars of The LORD goes way beyond the contention for our personal desires, personal interest and even personal inheritances in The Kingdom.
Every matter that falls under the jurisdiction of The Wars of The LORD; whether peoples, spheres or nations are matters which The Godhead has particular and personal interest in; and these matters transcend the personal desires and ambitions of persons and peoples.
The LORD in revealing to Moses the significance of this call made reference to Israelites in Exodus 3:7 as “His People”; for which The LORD was calling Moses into a commission to undertake the assignment of being sent to Pharaoh, to co-labor with The LORD in bringing His people out of bondage.
The Scripture makes mention of another significant woman named Deborah, called of God, at a significant moment in the time of The Wars of The LORD, stirred up as a Prophet to lead the people of God into The Wars of The LORD.
“In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath, In the days of Jael, The highways were deserted, And the travelers walked along the byways. Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel, Until I, Deborah, arose,
Arose a mother in Israel. They chose new gods; then there was war in the gates; not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel. My heart is with the rulers of Israel, Who offered themselves willingly with the people. Bless The LORD!” Judges 5:7-9
In a time when Israel as a people were out of order, the highways were deserted, Israel had chosen new gods; The Scripture reveals, “Then there was war in the gates, not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel” — yet it shows us this “Until, I Deborah, arose, a mother in Israel”.
How profound that is!
In a time when The Book of Wars of The LORD are being opened, and the wars were taking shape in the heavens and the earth; The LORD always required and raised up a voice — Prophets of The Wars of The LORD — that began to stir the people in the ways and in the wisdom of The LORD, regarding the unfolding Wars of The LORD.
The Scriptures speak about the Wars of The LORD Prophet Deborah was stirred to lead the charge into saying;
“The kings came and fought, Then the kings of Canaan fought, In Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo; they took no spoils of silver. They fought from the heavens; The stars from their courses fought against Sisera. The torrent of Kishon swept them away, That ancient torrent, the torrent of Kishon.
O my soul, march on in strength! Then the horses’ hooves pounded, The galloping, galloping of his steeds. ‘Curse Meroz,’ said the angel of The LORD, ‘Curse its inhabitants bitterly, because they did not come to the help of The LORD, to the help of The LORD against the mighty.” Judges 5:19-23
These were no ordinary nor fleshy wars!
These were wars with marching orders proceeding from Heaven; wars the stars and their courses were conscripted to fight in, wars with Angelic presence and support – yet wars that required the significant Ministry of The Prophets of The Wars of The LORD.
The Scriptures reveal yet another operation of The Ministry of The Prophets raised up to Minister in the times of The Wars of The LORD through The Prophet Elisha.
The King of Syria warred against Israel, and had within his chambers, a secret war room where his battles strategies were mapped out and drawn out to be executed — yet the Prophet Elisha standing in his lot in the formations of The Wars of The LORD captured the military intelligence of their Syrian army and related this to the King of Israel, a number of times.
“Now the king of Syria was making war against Israel; and he consulted with his servants, saying, “My camp will be in such and such a place.” And the man of God sent to the king of Israel, saying, “Beware that you do not pass this place, for the Syrians are coming down there.”” 2 Kings 6:8-9
This spiritual interception of the Military Intelligence and Strategy of the king of Syria, is what saved The King of Israel from being captured, and kept the Nation Israel from being overrun by the Syrian army.
The Prophet Samuel is yet another profound instance where The LORD raised up Prophets in times and seasons of The Wars of The LORD; set him to deliver significant war directives to the King Saul that could have brought tremendous long lasting victories to the Nation Israel.
The Prophet Agabus is also another profound instance where The LORD raised up Prophets to bring significant insight into the season of The Wars of The LORD.
“And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. When he had come to us, he took Paul’s belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.” Acts 21:10-11
The Times of The Wars of The LORD are upon us!
The Seasons of The Opening of The Books of The Wars of The LORD are upon us!
The Prophets of The Wars of The LORD are being called and commissioned at this time to bring significant lead, as we march into the War Times and Seasons in The Kingdom.
It is time to Pray for Discernment, that you be aligned rightly, that you may know how you ought to march in this Season of The Wars of The LORD.
