The LORD woke me up in the night with this phrase, “The Sword and the Scepter.”
And I saw a Royal Child sitting on a throne receiving these two items into their hands. The Sword and the Scepter became as one supernatural weapon in his hands for such a time as this.
“Beloved, In these great times of difficulty, your God arises and the enemy is scattered. I have called you and chosen you to partner with Me, My Royal Child.
I have called you out of darkness and into My Marvelous Light. Into your Hands I place Power and Authority.
I give to you the Sword of the Spirit, the Word, which is the Dunamis POWER of God and the Scepter, which is My Authority over ALL the power of the enemy.
Do not be afraid, Dear One. Be of good courage. I have not left you as orphans but you have been endued with Power from on high.
You are the Child of the King and joint heir with Christ. I have given you Power and Authority over ALL demons and to cure diseases.
Your weapons in this world are not carnal but MIGHTY through your God for the pulling down of strongholds. The King has spoken and appointed you and anointed you for such a time as this.
I have extended My Golden Scepter to you, My Child. You walk in My Favor and Grace. The Sword and the Scepter are one in your hand. Wield it by the Power of the Spirit and watch the enemies fall…
Rise up, My Warrior in My Authority and MIGHT… It is time!”

SCEPTER: A rod or mace used by a King as a symbol of royal authority. Absolute power and absolute authority that is unrestricted; the right to act in a situation.
