When The Enemy Yells Checkmate!


The LORD showed me a vision of a woman moving around on a chess board.

Every way that she would turn, her opponent would try to trap her and throw another obstacle her way.

Her adversary was trying to trap her and surround her in defeat.  For in the game of chess, a person wins when the king is in the position that is unprotected.

The king is in the position where he can no longer move and completely surrounded by the enemy.  They can’t go forward, they can’t go backward, they can’t go to the left, nor to the right.

Trapped, blocked, with looks of no escape when the winner will then yell “Checkmate!”

When they took Jesus and hung Him on a cross, they nailed and beat him.

Hell laughed and demons circled around Him.  They thought surely the King is out of moves and it’s over.

Miracles are over, no more water walking, and no more healing, It is all over!  To them it looked to be a total “Checkmate!”

However on the third day, hell screams in defeat. The King had one more move!

When your adversary wants to scream at you “Checkmate!” You can’t move this way, you can’t move that way, you have run out of chances and totally run out of help.

He may be screaming checkmate, but God is saying “Oh No not today devil, I don’t think so!”

Our King of Kings still has one more move!  In your season of weeping and you don’t know where to turn, your King has one more move!

When you are losing everything and feel like you are down to nothing, Your King has one more move!

When the doctors say they don’t know what else to do, your King has one more move.

When all of hell is screaming and laughing and ready to call Checkmate on you, your King has one more move.

The devil makes a move, we make a move.  Back and forth we go.  Sometimes we seem to be winning and some times we feel like we are losing.

Once in a while, we feel like we are backed into a corner and ready to give up.  When those times come, we need to remember that we always have one more move. God knows how to put a ladder into the deepest pit.

The enemy may be putting on the victory parade and saying, “I am calling Checkmate!”

“She cannot possibly rise from that,” or “He cannot make it through this!”

That is when our Almighty God arises and replies,”I don’t think so!”  I have one more move left!

I want you to know today that whatever darkness is trying to consume you that the devil does not have the last move.

You are not fighting for victory – you are fighting from victory.  The game has already been won!
