The Roar of a Heavenly Invasion!

 

Apostle Barbara Yoder: Faith Marie Baczko is well known to me; she is a biblically based Spirit led minister and I fully endorse both her and this word:

I was recently at a conference in Ann Arbor at Apostle Barbara Yoder’s Church – Shekinah Apostolic Center.  Dutch Sheets was one of the Speakers and Steve Swanson was leading worship.  The name of the conference was ROAR, a name given at a time when there was little understanding of the significance of the entrance into the decade of peythe mouth in Hebrew. The conference began with a ROAR and ended with a crescendo of HEAVEN’S ROAR uniting with the church.  I am writing this word in response to two visions I received while in worship, visions that I believe are significant now to the people of God as a whole.The first vision I received was on the Friday night.  I have been in many meetings at this church when Steve Swanson was leading worship and moved into prophetic worship…and it was always of the charts in his ability to usher the people into the supernatural realms of God. This night surpassed anything I had ever experienced…however, it was far more than an experience; something significant was initiated by Heaven that night and the following day!  I am finding it very hard to describe with words the sounds that I heard… and I am not going to even try, except to say that the worship began on a supernatural note that continued to build in power and in ethereal intensity (God just gave me that word it means otherworldly). The sound continued to build to such a degree that it became difficult to not be completely overwhelmed and overtaken. Suddenly the emphasis shifted from ascending worship, to a Heavenly invasion into the sanctuary! This commanded the absolute silence of any voices…there was just the ROAR and sounds that accompanied the invading forces.

As I was caught up in the worship, I was taken into a vision; it began with Jesus taking hold of my hand and pulling me into swirls of the Glorious blue—this I believe signified revelation. As I passed through the blue I then looked and saw thousands of white horses, each jostling to get into formation. A line was formed stretching as far as the eye could see.  Suddenly the scene switched, and I was now seeing the church sanctuary fill with these white horses and their riders from wall to wall.  On the platform was a great white horse with Jesus sitting on it and a banner in His hand. A few horses were on either side of Him and He sat there looking as the room filled up with these heavenly riders.

The scene then suddenly switched again to an open field of green with trees lining the far side; the horses were again in formation galloping as swiftly as the wind. As they passed by me, a white cord suddenly was wrapped around me like a lasso; I found myself lifted into the air and firmly planted on the back of one of the horses, riding fiercely with this army. Understanding of the vision didn’t become clear to me until later when I saw that it was timed perfectly with what was happening with the worship. I then understood that the Armies of God—the saints of God and the angelic hosts of Heaven, were being released together into the harvest fields of the world!

After the time of silence in the worship, Apostle Barbara stood and released a confirming word to what I was seeing, she prophesied:

“There is an army, that is right now being commissioned from Heaven. It is arising with the strength that Moses had, that his strength didn’t fail, and his eyes didn’t go dim. They are arising to the tune of Heaven and as they arise to the tune of the sound of Heaven, they are going to march in a coordinated effort across this land… and God said I am going to deliver the victory into their hands. But you must stand, and you must get into your formation, for God says I am on the move, and I am initiating a brand-new movement. And this movement will not be stopped for I am releasing and imparting My strength even right now to go beyond what you have ever gone beyond before. For God is putting the sword of Gideon in your hand, the sword of victory, the sword of the Lord and Gideon! Shout to the Lord! …This is a brand-new day and God is doing a brand-new thing! I am mustering My army, My forces shall not encounter defeat! The Lord says you cannot and shall not be defeated! The Lord says My forces cannot and shall not be defeated! I declare to you that the forces shall not be defeated, they shall break all the way through to victory, for even now there is a new thing happening and there is a swirling of the Winds of Heaven—Winds of strength. There are places where you said , I cannot go any further, or I cannot get up again—the Wind is coming into your back to pick you up and to put you into formation and YOU WILL NOT BE DEFEATED AND YOU WILL BREAK THROUGH TO VICTORY!

The following day the atmosphere and dynamic of worship continued, and God took me into a second vision: This vision began with the color purple, which I understood to mean royalty.  I then saw an enormous Throne with a magnificent and ornate golden chair with One seated on it. It was God the Father! He had a large golden crown on His head with jewels embedded in it and a scepter in His hand. I could not see His face. On either side of His throne stood a line of trumpeters with extremely long golden trumpets; they were all blowing with their trumpets lifted high into the air. The line of them on either side went on and on, again as far as the eye could see. God the Father was not seated on His Throne, He was standing; I thought this was unusual but He was observing us intently.

I then saw a large fearsome lion swagger out in front of the Throne; He stopped and stood there exuding immense power and strength, His eyes blazing with the intensity of what was about to take place.  As the trumpeters blew their horn, I heard the Father Announce: “IT HAS BEGUN!” Apostle Barbara then again began to prophesy:

“The trumpets are sounding! I have now commissioned and empowered my remnant. They are arising as a mighty army that cannot be defeated. They are arising, they are advancing, they will break through and victory is in their hands. They are advancing, they cannot be defeated, victory is in their hands! They are advancing, they cannot be defeated, victory is in their hands. Let the roar arise and run to the battle!”

It now seems clear that we are no longer waiting for God to move—HE HAS MOVED! The evidence of this is beginning to break out all over the world. Hollywood is being greatly affected, stadiums are filling up with worship, revivals are breaking out in certain cities. Despite the circumstance around us in regard to politics, the economy, in our nations and in our communities, the people of God are suddenly sensing a RISING in their spirits coming upon them and a shaking of the ground beneath them…the armies of God are riding in unison to gather in the Harvest and defeat the enemies of God!

Many will now sense the Spirit of God coming upon them with ideas and strategies and will perceive that it is time to step up and move out! Many will no longer be satisfied or content to sit around and wait; they will feel the Holy Spirit nudging them to go again! Look again! You will hear a Voice in the wind encouraging you to cast your net on the other side—to try again with a new strategy or with fresh oil…with an expectation that this is the time, and that this time there will be success! 

God will be releasing very unusual and unique strategies to saints who have the mindset to embrace them and move with Him in the harmony of partnership.  We have heard it said that over history that the last move of God tends to persecute the next move of God—It is important now to not fall into this trap, as God is doing a NEW THING. He has new ways brought forth to overcome the challenges of this present world—the new age with its strange ways of thinking.  It is time to move out without fear and to always remember just as Barbara declared: “You will not be defeated!

The Breaker Shall Come!

 

God is presently positioning His people strategically for the launch of a great Heavenly campaign, through which the Lord with His heavenly hosts will begin to plunder the enemy’s camp to capture a great harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God.  The Harvest is about to be awakened, and the scales removed from their eyes; many will be given eyes to see and a heart to perceive the living God in Christ Jesus. The Church also is about to be awakened, receive the revelation of their true identity in Christ, begin to move out and begin to do the greater works of Christ.

Moves of God are never neat and tidy, and the one that is coming, that will release the billion soul harvest or possibly much more, will certainly come as a mighty, potent tidal wave that sparks and ignites war, as the rulers of darkness vie to retain power over their prey. In Isaiah 49:25, God in essence asks the question, can the powerful hold and keep their captives? His answer of course, was No, they cannot!

“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children.”

The Breaker Must Come!

God is now setting the stage for the greatest rescue mission of all time! The captives are restless; unease over the existing state of affairs is shaking foundations as the Church gets primed for action.  If an awakening is to come, if significant change is coming, if the Harvest is to be released from captivitythen the Breaker must first come, and the Breaker Anointing released! A Heavenly invasion must break and smash through the gates, crushing the walls of the enemy’s defences. There is always war at the Gates to Breakthrough! However, the Word of God promises that the gates of hell cannot and will not triumph or prevail.

Jill Austin, a prophet and passionate woman of God, before she died, said in a word she wrote for the Elijah List, “A breaker anointing is a catalytic deposit of the Holy Spirit where eternity breaks through into the natural realm. It’s a holy invasion where the gates of heaven are breaking open with visitations and salvations, healing and deliverance.The breaker anointing is the core anointing of the apostolic Church.”

In the great battle of WWII on D-day, waves and waves of valiant soldiers were willing to give their lives to take down the kingdom of darkness under the rule of Hitler. A new breed of such men and women are now being groomed for the great battles ahead to release the captives from their prisons, and their hard task masters who are bent on destroying civilization as we have known it. In Donald Trump’s great speech on D-Day, he honored the soldiers who fought that day on the shores of Normandy as the greatest generation ever; now however, another of the greatest and most significant generations ever to live is being made ready for notable of battles ahead.

This new breed is rising with Jesus’ cry of Isaiah 61 on their lips, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the LORD has anointed Me…to proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” (emphasis mine).

God is making ready a people for a HOLY WAR. In light of this, we can understand the reason for preparation in holiness, brokenness, love and mercy. The battle cry will resound as a trumpet blast from heaven to ignite the battle and releasing the sound that awakens a generation to their Divine destiny. This significant generation will see things that prophets and righteous men longed to see (Matt. 13:17).  We have been called to live in this notable hour to serve the purposes of the living God; it is time to be courageous and fearless.

The Trumpets Are Sounding!

In scripture (Num. 10:4), the silver trumpet was sounded  for the gathering of the leaders only once. Leaders had to be alert, listen for the sound of the trumpet and be ready. When the leaders led the people to war, the trumpets would also be blown to gather them for the battle ahead.

“When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the LORD your God, and you will be saved from your enemies.” Numbers 10:9

In a time of discouragement and despair, God once said to me very forcefully, Never put down your sword!  We cannot afford to be taken by surprise and caught off guard by hells schemes and sudden tactics. Pearl Harbor is a great example of a sudden and unexpected attack; these soldiers we’re highly trained and prepared, but their guards were down. The Word of God tells us,“If the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?” (1 Cor. 14:8). It is critical for the Church to be in a state of readiness, with our loins girded up, that we may run a race of strength and victory. Satan is holding captive billions of souls. The Word of God says, there is a time for every purpose—It is time to war at the gates for the souls of mankind.

Many years ago the Lord sent a prophet to my house with a message that I was to study the name Yahweh Shamah—one of the names of God; it means THE LORD HE IS THERE! In this season the Lord will be very present with us in every aspect of our lives and everything we do for Him. This is the name the Lord is highlighting for this season—for a generation who have come into maturity to the fullness of the stature of Christ. His Presence will fill the temple of lives dedicated to Him; He will be there to occupy their destiny to ensure its fulfillment! Yahweh Shamah represents the Lord in His fullness of power and authority, acknowledging the completeness of His work in a people, as He comes to fill them with His Glory.

“…the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE” Ezekiel 48:35

Don’t Discount The Small Thing!

Recently I had a small sense of the Lord possibly asking me to do a particular thing. I thought about, it and for a variety of reasons I brushed it off as not from the Lord. Later, the same small thought came on me to do this thing, and again I brushed it off. As I sat in a meeting one evening, the speaker said that God won’t give you directions for the next thing until you are obedient to do the last thing he told you to; immediately the same thought came to mind; I was greatly convicted and repented. The Lord then showed me a picture of a very small crack of a door that had opened.  The small crack represented a seemingly small opportunity, and I heard the Lord say, “Don’t discount the small thing, the small opportunity or the small voice; if there is a crack in the door it means the door has opened! A way is opening and has been made ready for you. Heaven is aligning the path ahead for you. If the door has opened even a crack, it means that with very little effort, with ease it can be pushed open, and will fully open to the broad expanse before you.”

Over this summer doors will be cracking open for some and swinging wide for others, establishing the saints in the Divine Call on this generation. The Breaker will be breaking open the way to begin to move out,  anointing the saints with the anointing of the Breaker to open prison doors and set captives free!  The Breaker rests upon the head of His people, as the oil was poured out on the head of Aaron. It advances on an apostolic people and leadership—a vanguard of courageous people united to the King, willing to give all for His Glory.

“The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: AND THEIR KING SHALL PASS BEFORE THEM, AND THE LORD ON THE HEAD OF THEM.” Micah 2:13 (emphasis mine)

Don’t miss the small voice, or ignore the small opportunity. The Breaker has come! Get ready for a summer of breakthrough! I heard the Lord whisper, “Ready or not, here I come.”
