Revelation 12:10-11
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.


What I am hearing in my spirit is NOW is the kingdom come. The battle is upon us and the day of preparation is at hand. Ready yourself for battle! Put on your spiritual armor and sharpen your sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Make strong your shield of faith. Place well your breastplate of righteousness. Gird your loins and your reproductive powers with truth. Put on that helmet of salvation wherein your mind is renewed in Christ and you operate out of the covering and paradigm of His kingdom life and power. Protect your mind from powers of doubt, fear and unbelief. Have your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, for you are about to carry it and demonstrate it in the earth. All these things are as Ephesians 6 teaches us, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Get it out of your head that you are just trying to survive and make it through. We are a violent people and a spiritual force to be reckoned with. God is empowering, training and preparing you for the hour we are coming into. We are going to do things that we have never done and experience things that we have never experienced because the manifestation of God Spirit is going to be so mighty through us.
We know that Jesus is the prototype of what we are becoming. We know that as 1 John 4:17 says, “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” We are standing in the day of judgement. This is our hour and the day has come. Either be prepared in your spirit to face it or be judged by it. These are sobering times, not just in the realm of economy, but in the realm of the spirit. We can readily see wickedness waxing worse and worse before us. There is no more time for spiritual sleep and slumber for this is a day and time for action. Hear this, people of God, as a trumpet from heaven calling you to prepare for battle, for it is coming whether you are ready or not.
In Matthew 11:12 it says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Ask yourself what happened from the time of John the Baptist? Jesus came manifesting the kingdom. Principalities and powers of darkness had overrun this kingdom of heaven, but now the King of Kings has showed up. He is the violent One that is taking it by force. The sick are being healed, the blind see, the lame walk, evil spirits are cast out and the even the dead are raised up. How about it people of God? Are your ready for some spiritual violence? The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you (Romans 8). These are powerful times in the spirit realm. If you are being shaken in your life it so everything that can be shaken will be and everything that is not of God will be burned up so that you may come forth in purity, righteousness and in the power of God. The gospel will no longer be in word only, but with the demonstration of the Spirit and power. God has to change our old way of thinking because He is moving us into a new age and time. His kingdom is coming and we had better learn how to operate out of it.
You are a new generation. You are called to be spiritual warriors and overcomers. This is a day for radical faith and uncompromising confidence in the One we serve and love. It starts in you by stepping out right where God has you and with what He has placed in your life. What is in your hand? Like Moses, throw it down and see what the Lord will do. Be faithful to declare and speak His kingdom right where you are at and into the peoples lives He has placed you with. This seed of faith will grow into a mighty tree.
What that violent Jesus started He is going to finish through His people for He has set down at the right hand of the Father until His enemies be made His footstool. That means they are put under His feet and who are the feet of Jesus but you and I? These are dynamic and exciting times! Get up and get dressed. Put on your whole armor, for the battle rages before us!



Pursue and Destroy

May 24, 2012

Psalms 18:37-42
I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
38I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet.
39You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
40You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes.
41They cried for help, but there was no one to save them—to the Lord, but he did not answer.
42I beat them as fine as dust borne on the wind; I poured them out like mud in the streets.

Pursue and Destroy

This is the word that I heard this morning and as I  looked it up I came to this passage in Psalm 18.  Like David, most of our lives we may have felt the enemy was always pursuing us, trying to capture and destroy us.  Always coming to kill, steal and destroy, for such is his nature.
The Lord will allow us to be the receipients of the smith’s hand and hammer for only so long.  He will allow Him to afflict in order to shape and mold us in our faith, patience, hope and steadfastness.  Even as Jesus, though He were a Son, learned obedience through the things that he suffered, so we are perfected in our sufferings.  Romans 8 also tells us that if so be that we suffer with Him we shall also be glorified with Him.  There is a day when the pursuer will become the pursued and just as Jesus led captivity captive, so in Him we will become the destroyers of our enemies.

“Today I speak and say, “Your enemies will become as dust beneath your feet.  I will rise up mightily within you and I will show Myself strong on your behalf.  You will no longer be the afflicted, but the pursuers of the unrighteous and the destroyers of the wicked.  Your enemies will become filled with fear as they see My might behind you and they will flee in many directions.
Know this, that I train up my own, not to destroy them, but to make them mighty for battle.  You are My spiritual warriors and I am your Captain that leads you into battle.  Under My banner you shall not fail nor be overcome.  I am strong in you and one of you can put a thousand to flight.
Shrink no longer from your enemy, but face him with the boldness and fierceness of the Son of God.  The enemy was created to be your footstool and to be trampled beneath your feet.  You have all authority and I am the empowerment of that authority.  As you move by My Spirit you shall conquer and destroy and none shall stand against you.  If  you are given over to the enemy it is ultimately for their destruction and not yours.  Even in death, you hold the victory of life and even if they are allowed to touch your body, they can not touch your soul.
Satan thought that He was destroying the Son of man, but in His death, satan was undone and he only destroyed himself.  Through you will be the fulfillment of that destruction and the gates of hell can not prevail against you.
Be bold as lions.  Know and exercise your authority from whom you are in Me.  My sons will light up the darkness and it will flee before them.  Darkness can not overtake light, but light will always dispell darkness.  You are the light in the world, for you carry the treasure of the Son within you.  Take up your torches, pursue and destroy all of the dark places, for I the Lord go before you.”
