A Sword Poised to Strike!

Over these past months the words I have received from the Lord, I have seen through the lens of the season of war we have now entered. The Lord is highlighting the need to courageously address present realities that necessitates having a righteous army prepared for the challenges of the battles we will face …that we may become an overcoming army that attains to victory in the Lord.  Offering platitudes that give a false sense that all is well, I believe would not be helpful to anyone right now. In seeking the Lord regarding the contrast between the revelations given of glory, power, and authority on one hand, with discipline on the other, I sensed the Lord saying, “I want you to see and understand both sides of the sword that is poised to strike.” Over many days, I have been hearing in my spirit the words overthrow, overthrow, I knew this was in Ezekiel 21 where a few things began to jump out to me:

 “Son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the LORD!’ Say: ‘A sword, a sword is sharpened and also polished! V. 9

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, mark out two roads for the sword of the king of Babylon to take, both starting from the same country…  For the king of Babylon will stop at the fork in the road, at the junction of the two roads, to seek an omen: He will cast lots with arrows, he will consult his idols…” V.19,21 (this is divination)

“Overthrown, overthrown, I will make it overthrown! It shall be no longer,until He comes whose right it is, And I will give itto Him.” V. 27

Most of the words that I write are didactic in nature, as my desire is to always bring foundation, scope and understanding to the revelations given. This is the understanding I received: Ezekiel chapter 21 is a depiction of the present state of the house of God and discipline is decreed.  The Bible does declare that judgment begins at the house of God, nonetheless, there has been much repentance taking place and God has heard the cries of the intercessors, and victory is assured! Even so, there is a cleansing coming to the House of God, through the judgment brought on the world by the king of Babylon that is heading our way! He is at the fork in the road using divination and is conspiring with those in agreement with him.

Chapter 21 was the fate determined for the land of Israel and the people of God. Israel had come to a time in their history when rebellion and sin had overtaken the land and the House of God, as it now has in ours—where saints are calling what is evil good, and what is good evil! With great longsuffering and patience God had given much time for repentance and a change of heart. Chapter 22:26-30 revealed the condition of God’s House.

“Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made knownthe difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain… verse 20 continues:

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.

God is looking for men and women, who reject rebellion and resisting His ways; those who can stand on behalf of the land and His House that He should not destroy it—as He says in His Word rebellion is witchcraft, and we cannot fight witchcraft in the same spirit (1 Sam. 15:23). God is presently looking for holy negotiators who carry His heart as Moses did, who will reason with Him why He should not do this.  He is looking for those who have power at His Throne to advocate on behalf of the land.  He is looking for those willing to lay down their lives, to war on behalf of the people and the land. He is looking for those who will come boldly behind the veil to reason with Him! History is calling for those who will move the heart of God and turn the tide. This is a critical time of history when creation is groaning for the sons of God to arise to their call! Who will answer the call?

To Overthrow or Be Overthrown!

In the United States, there are those who have plotted and established a commission to enact the 25th amendment to remove a sitting president. Because this legislation was previously prepared, I believe their intention was to use it on Donald Trump after He contracted the Coronavirus—not understanding that God would raise him up in four days, stronger than before! It then suddenly dawned on me that I had been hearing the words overthrow, overthrow for four or five days prior to this announcement on the news. The word overthrow is a revelation from God of how high the stakes are, and that we are not to take any of it lightly.

Overthrow means: To bring about the downfall, destruction, or ending of, especially by force or concerted action: a plot to overthrow the government (Free Dictionary)

I also discovered that the word overthrow also means a coup!

Coups d’état; is an ousting, overthrow, takeover, it is the removal of an existing government from power, usually through violent means. (Wikipedia)

It has also been factually revealed that the democrats have been holding war games, devising various plots for every possible scenario of the election. Their ultimate aim is to overthrow Donald Trump in this election, at all costs!  As a Canadian, some may be wondering why I am so focused on Donald Trump, American politics and the elections. It is extremely important for Christians of all nations to understand that America is the stronghold the dragon must take down in order to take control of the world. America is the centre of the battle, and Donald Trump is the man standing in the way of their unfolding plan for world dominion. A group called the Disruption Project has issued a manifesto calling for violence whether Donald Trump wins or not.  As the President and Commander in Chief of the battle, Trump is empowered and protected by God, is backed by heaven, and needs to now be undergirded in prayer by the intercession of the saints worldwide.

It is important to now have Kingdom perspective! The saints are being called to face off a demonic force that is presently flexing its muscles and rising in power and strength, supported by the agreement of the world. For many decades since WWII, these forces have been waiting for a generation to pass, for the moment to make their move. Their target is Donald Trump, and the people of God. Their agenda is to take down lawful governments and the old order, and through chaos, establish Global governance in the Earth. During this volatile time, we must pray, fight and resist their efforts. However, first and foremost, we must trust God in the way He chooses to work, and not be discouraged by what we may witness (Please see my last word).

Jesus made the statement that the Gates of Hell would not prevail over His Ekklesia (Matt. 16:18).  The word prevail means to triumph or have victory over another, therefore, Jesus’ promise to us is that the enemy would not and even could not, triumph and have victory over the determined will of God.  The Church of God, endowed with His strength and His power, was created to withstand and to prevail over the enemies of God.  Yet, the word of God also declares that false prophets and false christs would deceive, if possible, even the elect (Matt. 24:24). It also reveals in the Book of Daniel that the beast making war with the saints, was prevailing against them (Dan. 7:21). Is this a contradiction? The question that arises is, do we want to prevail or be prevailed against, to overthrow or be overthrown. What will it be?

Under Authority!

Let’s dig into what it means for the saints to prevail, to triumph, and to be triumphant warriors? I believe it means far more than just showing up, even though that is good, or fighting in our own will and strength!  As the spirit of lawlessness and rebellion roams the streets of our cities, it searches out and finds our weaknesses, and will easily entrap the independent and the rebellious in heart. There is something to say for those who, when faced with tribulation or dire circumstances make the choice to stand together as one, supporting each another and their leaders. In unity of Spirit they face off the enemy and ward off trouble. It is in union as a Body, that we win the battles and have power to overcome.

In a time when it is so critical to know and be moving in our God given authority, many still don’t understand the need to be under authority, in order to be moving in authority. Many love to be in authority over others, but struggle with the idea of being submitted to another.  Until this dynamic is tested in relationships, some remain blinded to the fact that they actually resist leadership.

The people of God have found themselves in a conundrum since the introduction of the Coronavirus. Because of this virus everyone was placed in a state of lockdown during the first few months of its spread, with some still in various stages of lock down in many states and countries.  God used this time for good on many fronts: to awaken His people from slumber, to draw us closer to Himself, and to extend the Church’s influence Globally through technology. However, the enemy has used the situation primarily to separate us from each other, to divide us on issues, and to remove us from functioning as a body with the guidance of our leaders. The enemy fully understands that it is only in unity that we stand as a force, having the impact to breakthrough and overcome!  An army functions in order and in lines of authority. With faith and a humility that impressed Jesus, the centurion fully understood this principle as himself a Leader in the army! He said:

“Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” Luke 7:6-9

Go Up & Possess!

F.B. Meyer once said: “The Land was Israel’s by deed, but Israel had to go up and possess it!” We have entered a season of war, a time to go to war for the land! It is also time for us to wake up to the reality of the dimension of extreme demonic warfare we are being called to and take our place without fear!  It is a time that calls for and will see miracles, as the supernatural power of God is released to turn the tide.

The saints of God are all together facing the greatest battle of the ages. As I said in my last word, “Brace Yourselves!” what is coming down the pike may be so potent, that we need to be quickly transformed into unshakeable pillars of the faith. This will require choosing the place of consecration, of obedience to be under authority, and to be in union with our local spiritual family and leaders. These are the ones we reach out to in times of need and trouble. God puts us in families to take care of each other. I believe in this time, God is admonishing us to stay connected to our spiritual families, and if you don’t have one, find one quickly and get built in and submitted.

It is important for leaders to find a way to become unified as a Body, and to work together. The overthrow can go either way depending on the stance that we choose to take! I personally believe we will press through and breakthrough, but it will not be without a fight!  Donald Trump is a great example to the Body of Christ of prospering under persecution—this, because God is on the throne, He is supernatural, powerful and mighty to save!

We must fight the fear that wants to paralyze and cause panic! God believes in you! He picked you for this moment. History is counting on you to take the place reserved for you. This is the watch we have been assigned to and Christ is the Captain of the armies leading us into battle. Let us rise up now in faith and join Him in the overthrow of the enemies of God!

Revelation 19:12-16: “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on himwascalled Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
