The Spirit of the LORD spoke this morning on our Prayer Line concerning the oppression of witchcraft and the heaviness of darkness.
He also spoke about the demonic presence of warfare that many were facing.
He revealed that there were demonic gatekeepers which were assigned to stop people from entering, not only into the promises of ABBA, but to also oppose them as they pray to Him.
Many are experiencing the oppression of a warfare that was orchestrated by somebody with a personal agenda of jealous vengeance against them.
Some are going through this because Satan knows who you are and why you were birthed in the earth — to destroy his works.
The works the enemy thought would destroy them, couldn’t, but the weight of the continued battles is trying to break them down.
These persons seem to experience one thing after another taking place in their life.
They are not in sin; they are not being punished; this is not for their process; this is demonic activity that has been planned by the enemy to wear them down and to take them out.
Most are intercessors with an assignment to pray for certain people and the backlash has been heavy.
They are interceding for those who are interceding for those whom YAHWEH has called to the front line of the battle against Satan and his kingdom of darkness.
Often we forget to pray for the intercessors who are giving assignments against high ranking principalities, rulers of darkness, powers of evil and spiritual wickedness in high places.
Understand that the Kingdom of YAH has a system of checks and balances to make sure that all are covered in the Kingdom, either by His angels, or assigned prayer warriors.
Today, He has spoken about the oppressors of evil that are trying to encircled the lives of YAHWEH remnants who are ordained and authorized to challenge and defeat those forces of darkness that are trying to bring trouble and cause havoc and destruction.
He showed me how many were blanketed with His presence, but yet are experiencing around them unusual situations that were suddenly springing up to try to bring discouragement and sorrow.
From deaths to financial drainings, these things are either personally happening to them or their families or to those connected to them.
As they war about one thing, the enemy tries to strike with something to keep them tired and to cause weariness!
YAHWEH spoke and said this, that people were looking at these persons as if they were weak, or had no power or authority, but in reality, they are experiencing the aftermath of their intercession for others.
Sometimes the very thing they have warned against and conquered in prayer for others, will try to boomerang back into their lives or the lives of their loved ones.
Some are saying that they just fought against this spirit in somebody else’s life, now it’s happening to their spouse, their children or somebody connected to them!
The enemy tries to make them think that they were not effective, but in reality they were.
I always tell those who are intercessors and prayer warriors, to always have somebody who can pray with them and counsel them, because of the backlash that can sometimes occur against them.
Hear me good! It doesn’t mean they are not strong or that they don’t have power! It just means that the enemy will try to come in right after the battle is won and you are being rebuilt, as they try to attack when they thinks you’re not at your strongest.
But he don’t know that when you’re weak, the Spirit of YAHWEH within you becomes strong.
Remember this, when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against Him!
So people, as you are praying, don’t forget to pray for those who are praying for you.
Often they are people we don’t know personally, but they have been given an assignment to stand in the gap, interceding for us against the dangers, death, destruction and devastation that have been planned for our lives.
Often, when I’m going through a hard place, I will experience a lifting of the pressure or heaviness that was trying to consume me, and can feel that somebody is praying for me to make it through the storm.
Then somebody will call or text and say I just got out of prayer, and then tell me what they were praying for, and it be exactly what I was going through.
Don’t forget those who pray for us!!
I come today just to encourage, uplift and to let those who are praying, interceding and warring for others, to know YAHWEH has not forgotten you and is fighting for you to be delivered and set free from the backlash, retaliation, vengeance and revenge, that not only is sent toward you, but toward your family, friends and spiritual connections.
Know that He has you protected. The enemy can’t destroy you, he can only try to oppress you.
But this day, I am decreeing by the power of YAHWEH’s Spirit, that your oppression will be no more.
YESHUA has won the victory for us through His death, burial and resurrection, and you stand today because greater is He within you then he that is in the world!
Know you’re not alone, but you have the Host of Heaven standing with you and helping you to fight in your battles.
Love you and know there are those who are praying for you!
