In prayer today, I saw what you call a wartime trench. I saw many coming from behind the ranks and jumping into the trench, and it was filled with soldiers with various types of weapons.
All with the same uniforms, but differences in insignia, face and weaponry. I could hear, “Hold steady!” “Stay on target!” “Hold! Hold!” The officers had the information by way of radio for back up. The trench was filled with soldiers that were ready to fight, but they had to wait for the command to GO!
I AM your commander and chief. I see the big picture and I know the exact moment to run and attack or even retreat! Being still and holding position is just as crucial as advancing forward in war. To retreat in war time, will help the troops to refresh and be ready for the next campaign. Rest and retreat are also a defensive weapon! To refresh, supply, renew and restore.
You are not your own. You have been bought and ransomed by the LORD. I know the heart ache and pain you suffer. Having kept your heart covered to protect, will heal beloved. I AM here says the Lord. I AM here even in war… I haven’t left you and realize around you the warriors that you are surrounded by. Their your comrades, you friends. You are not alone beloved.
I have given you a militant spirit I know where each person is to be at the exact moment. I have given you the neck of the enemy. Keep him under your feet.
One can do damage to the enemy but all of you together can take cities, because you are in ME says the LORD! I receive great honor because of your obedience in rank and file.
All the time you were seemingly hidden is for NOW! I have prepared you so well and will continue to as you march towards the path of your destiny. Today is the day of salvation. You haven’t seen anything yet!
No plan of darkness can happen unless I know it. You bring great honor to ME when you display MY splendor as the enemy cannot break through the ranks of authority I have given you.
It is so important NOW to find your place in this militant force. I have given orders and as you see them you will fall in line and order. Favor isn’t free and freedom ain’t free! It cost MY life for you and now you must learn to walk in it.
Your sword will be quick, sharp and powerful for you have learned to wield it. I AM watching over MY WORD and you shall be so one with MY SPIRIT of Grace, that the enemy will not be able to stand or fight against you. ALL of the plans of darkness will be revealed. This is a time like no other when the manifestations of the sons of GOD shall rise up in demonstration of the Spirit. Invade the earth!
You must realize and know that your battle is NOT with flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places. However, you fight and war to release souls and setting the captives free. You are not taking captives you are releasing them. There are many wounded that need tending to. Great Grace is needed to help these recover fully.
Be quick to hear, slow to speak as your words must be released MY way. Give no room for the enemy. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. This has been a huge campaign bringing death to the works of the flesh.
As Elijah was sent for a showdown against false prophets of Baal and Jezebel. Read:
“So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.
And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.
So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.
And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces,” 1 Kings 18:16-39.
There are a lot of so called prophets who profit from others suffering, opportunity and witchcraft. The one who answers by fire is the LORD almighty. How do you know?
Fire illuminates. It confirms and above these things, it will line up with Gods WORD.
I had a vision . I saw a oil lamp burning and the closer I got to it, I saw the face of a believer in the flame. Flames of fire. We are those lamps and we are not consumed in the fire but with our fire we bring illumination for others to see their way to God.
You are so needed and valuable to ME says the LORD. Others are walking the path behind you and through your lamp they shall see the way to go.
Heaven and earth will pass away but MY WORD will never pass away.
What is the difference between hot or cold? MY WORD is like a fire!
There are those writing and playing the Holy Spirit, writing in competition with others for benefit and it is the flesh! Feeling pressure to press a word without hearing MY WORD is false prophecy. Where’s the anointing? Sometimes silence is the will of GOD to bring us all back to trusting the Lord. Herds are driven and sheep follow. Selah.
Cause us to see the desired end of a thing. Cause us to have strong discernment to know the beginning from the end. Help us to only be close with those of like heart, like mind and like spirit. Only DO NOT become a friend to those who only want to use you as a crutch or benefit to expand their way of thinking and doing. Rethink your thinker.
I will help you! Fear NO man. I will give you straight up answers and say what needs to be said. I will not allow MY ministers to control and manipulate.
Some say only what is allowed in the inner circle of things. Be careful what circles you are in. When you are being manipulated and controlled in relationships beware of Jezebel. She has lots of idols.
I have made MY SONS bold as a lion. Let not boldness be an opportunity to pride, and arrogance. However MY SONS shall be confident, assurance and stubborn obedience to ME says the LORD.
