On Wednesday January 15, 2020 while doing morning meditations on the Word, the Holy Spirit said “there is a declaration of war“. As those words were said I knew what it meant. This is what the Lord will do for His people.
He will be warring for His people. It is time for them to be freed. Time for them to come into the promises.
Prepare yourself. This is a season of blessings and battles, blessings and battles, blessings and battles, blessings and battles,…
Do not fear the rumors of war. God will protect His people.
The enemies who have harassed you and kept you bound will no longer have power over you.
The war cry has gone out. There is war!
Clash Between Two Kingdoms
This war will usher the clash of two kingdoms. God will deal with the enemy concerning your destiny, family, generations and the the covenant made to nations. Covenants made to the founding father of nations will be upheld. The Lord will keep the promise made to nations many centuries ago. The Lord will fulfill His promise concerning the United States of America and other nations. Hope shall not be lost.
There will be a fight. The enemy will not let the people go quickly. He has kept people bound for a very long time. Despite his efforts he will not win.
The Kingdom of God will put the Kingdom of darkness to open shame. When the time came for the children of Israel to be freed Moses had to first content with the diviners, sorcerers, wizards, magicians, soothsayers and other workers of mystic arts. He put them all to open shame. Paul did the same to free Cyprus. That region was under the power of Elymas, a sorcerer. He maintained control by bewitching the governor. As Paul shared the gospel with the people he tried to stop the governor from believing. Paul had to confront him. When the dust was settled Elymas, the sorcerer, was rendered temporarily blind. When the Governor saw that he recognized that the power of God was greater than witchcraft. And He believed on the Lord Jesus. Heads of Government have been bewitched. The saints will rise in strength and power. They will display the glory of God. When the heads of Government see the glory they will believe. Some will not but many will believe. (see Exodus 6-10)
On Saturday I had a dream about this war. In the dream walked upon children playing in the streets. They playing as they normally would with I saw children playing. They were playing with each other and many little demons.
As the Lord spoke to me of war, I was reminded of a dream I had on Saturday morning. In the dream, I was walking then I came upon some children playing. Around the children were a host of demons. The children were playing with them. I immediately began to rebuke and cast out the demons. They ran and vanished. Suddenly a man dressed in a blood red hooded robe decorated with yellow crescent moons, stars and suns attacked me. His anger was evident. Curses after curses were hurled at me. With all boldness, I turned to turned to face him. I was angry that he dared to stand against the work of the Lord. I rebuked him in the name of Jesus and commanded every demon operating through him to leave. Suddenly his powers left him. He was visibly shaken. By the Holy Spirit I knew what was happening in his heart. He was shocked that he had no power in the fight. Realizing that he could not win, he quickly turned around, opened a portal in the space and stepped through. The spiritual door closed. It was as if he was never there.
As soon as he disappeared I woke up, opened my eyes and fixed my thoughts on the dream. I needed to understand what happened. Less than two minutes later I fell asleep.
The dream picked up as if it had not stopped. I found myself looking at the same space the wizard had walked through. It opened and he stepped through, behind him were several other wizards. They were similarly dressed in hooded robes of various colors.
Without hesitating I began to use the blood and name of Jesus against them. The red wizard staggered backward. An invisible force had hit him. Holy anger rose in me at their attempt to defy the Living God, our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. My voice roared as tongues of fire were released. Fear came over the wizard, he turned and ran through the portal. It immediately sealed behind him.
It is important that we are not moved in this warfare as God deals with the enemy. The shaking must not terrify us. When it was time for Israel to be freed from their bondage Pharaoh resisted their release. He used his magicians and sorcerers, diviners and astrologers to enforce his power. They boldly confronted Moses but God were not victorious (2 Timothy 3:8-9; Exodus 7:11-12, 8:18, 9:11).
Pharaoh was told to let the people go. Failure to comply meant he would suffer the consequence. Israel was God’s firstborn. Any attempt to stop His firstborn from worshiping Him meant Pharaoh would loose His firstborn.
Pharaoh did not heed the warning. His extreme confidence in the power and might of Egypt, his magicians and numerous were misplaced. The Israelites’ tasks were doubled. Material to make bricks for the construction work was not given to them. They were forced to find get it for themselves. No extra time was given. Everything still had to be completed in the set schedule. Failure to meet the deadlines meant severe beating. The people complained. They wanted Moses to stop provoking Pharaoh. They did not understand God’s ultimate plan. The God’s of Egypt would be put to open shame.
Time after time Moses went to Pharaoh to request that the people be set free but he refused. Each time Pharaoh refused God punished Egypt. Pharaoh retaliated by punishing the Israelites even more. They were so vexed and wearied by the treatment that they turned on Moses. When Moses first came to them they rejoiced to hear that they would be freed. Now they were very upset about the process.
The lesson for us is to maintain faith as God takes us through the process. Before we can dance, skip and bask in the rewards of promotion in this era there is a stretching that we must endure. Things may seem to be going sideways. Our burdens may seem to have doubled. Setbacks and delays will occur. Our worst fears may be realized. Some missteps may happen. We may experience failure. Everything that can go wrong may go wrong, including nothing. Be resolute to push forward. Never, ever loose hope. Release words of courage and power. Speak to the problems. Exercise your power and authority and keep going. Never loose hope.
So let us seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it, for He Who promised is reliable (sure) and faithful to His word.
In times of great difficulty we must remember what God has done. One key to ensure we remember is to establish memorials. Abraham used altars as memorials to remember what God promised or had done while He walked with God. We may use a journal as a memorial. These must be reviewed regularly. We must frequently talk and reflect on them. We must also never fail to worship and offer thanks to the Lord Jesus for all He has done.
Exodus 4:20-23 (Amplified Bible Classic)
20 And Moses took his wife and his sons and set them on donkeys, and he returned to the land of Egypt; and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.
21 And the Lord said to Moses, When you return into Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all those miracles and wonders which I have put in your hand; but I will make him stubborn and harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go.
22 And you shall say to Pharaoh, Thus says the Lord, Israel is My son, even My firstborn.
23 And I say to you, Let My son go, that he may serve Me; and if you refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay your son, your firstborn.
Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.
2 But Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.
