I’m looking at a line in the sand, as The LORD applies it to us, but He also gave me an interpretation of it as applied to the forces of evil.
I wrote that interpretation to a dear friend, and the effect was such that I am prompted to share it wider.
I wrote: “I felt The LORD say over you, “So far but no further! I will only allow so much to attack you, then — no more!
I AM limiting the enemy’s ability to harass you. I AM setting My Army around you.
You are mine and I will protect and preserve you.
I have plans for you that are as yet unfulfilled.
So I rebuke the enemy. Thus far — not one step further!””
Does this ring a bell for anyone?
I feel a move in the Spirit. I feel the enemy is being dragged back from the worst excesses he was planning.
The LORD is rebuilding His Church, just as Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem.
The LORD is restoring Hope, where the world has been openly mocking us.
The LORD is restoring Faith where Faith has been shredded and all but destroyed.
The LORD is sounding a rallying cry to every Christian who will respond!
“To arms! Everyone to his or her post.
Let the Trumpets herald a gathering of the saints in a War Room to proclaim and decree the greatness of The LORD, and to declare fresh Hope for all mankind!
It is time to call a Council of War in every Church, every town and village.
It is time for the Watchmen to watch and stand guard; for the Intercessors to Intercede, Declare and Decree The LORD’s Will be done — and the Prophets to lead as they hear and speak and activate the Words of The LORD!
Do not say, “It’s not my job!” It is everyone’s job!
Let the Worshipers lead you into battle, for the battle is The LORD’s and the enemy’s walls will come tumbling down!”
I looked to the hills around us. The horsemen and chariots of Israel are in position.
The Army of The LORD is ready. The trumpeters are standing, trumpets raised, ready for the command.
The LORD stands to His Feet and His Voice rings out over us, “Now is the time. Let Battle commence!”
The enemy forces rise in unison with the Soldiers of The Cross.
I see the Ark of the Covenant, carried by the priests, take up position ready to lead the worshippers into battle.
Then . . . the Battle Cry is sounded!
Are you ready?
Is the Army of The LORD, on earth as it is in heaven, ready?
Then let us wage war on Satan and all his demon army. We cannot be defeated, the battle is already won! Amen!
