"My Warrior Bride – Unsheathe Your Sword!" by Angie Stolba, Washington, IL

“Let him lead me to the banquet hall, and let his banner over me be love.” (Song of Songs 2:4)

Recently, while in worship, the Lord gave me a picture of Jesus and me dancing together. Jesus was overjoyed, and I was overwhelmed by His great love and adoration for me. Then, the picture suddenly changed, and we went from dancing together to standing on a shore. Together, hand-in-hand, we began to walk out into the deep waters. I saw joy in Jesus’ eyes, even as we left the shore. Though I did not know where He was leading me, I was completely unafraid; I knew that my Savior was by my side, holding my hand. It was then that I knew what the Lord was showing me: It is more safe to be in the deep waters with Jesus than to remain on the shore—confined to our comfort zone—without Him.

Calling Forth His Bride to a Greater Season of Intimacy

As I was pondering what the Lord showed me, I sensed that He is not only speaking to me through these pictures, but to the Bride of Christ in her completeness.

I hear the Lord saying, “My Bride, I am calling you forth to arise from your slumber and enter into a time of intimacy with your Bridegroom. Let go of the distractions that so easily entangle you, and come away with Me.”

“Arise, my darling,
my beautiful one, come with me.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.” (Song of Songs 2:10-13)

Just as I could feel Jesus’ absolute pleasure over me as we were dancing together, I believe that the Lord wants to reveal to His Bride that same pleasure that He has for her. I believe the Lord is showing me the heart of love He extends toward His Bride.

Song of Songs 4:7 says, “You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” This verse so clearly illustrates how your Bridegroom—Jesus Christ—sees you. You have no spot or blemish in His eyes, and He says that you are altogether lovely. Wow! How He is ravished by us! Even in our weakness, this is how the Lord sees us.

I believe that the Lord is wanting His Bride to come into the full revelation of the depth of His great love for her. As it says in Zephaniah 3:17, in His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Do you realize that the God who created the universe sings over you? He is the One who designed the mountains and crafted the seas, and He is the same Lord who was, who is, and who is to come. This same God delights in you.

What an amazing and intimate love that your Bridegroom has for you, His Beloved. Regardless of the season of circumstances you are facing, His love for you is fierce, steady and unchanging.

I sense that the Lord is awakening weary hearts back to life. Those who have been hard-pressed on every side, listen closely: the King is singing His love song over you. His beautiful love is healing hearts, awakening them once again. As we spend time in the secret place, cultivating our intimacy with our Bridegroom, we will truly discover that He, alone, is all that we need.

Walking out into the Deep

It is in the place of abiding in intimacy with the Lord that He will reveal His strategies for breakthrough in our lives. As we take time to be with Him and align our will with His, our God will show us the answers and solutions.

“Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3)

The Bride of Christ will receive deeper revelation, as He will release the very blueprints of Heaven into your spirit. The Lord will show you the steps you need to take in order to walk into the greatness He has prepared for you. Just as I had pictured Jesus and I walking into the deep waters without fear, I sense that we, as the Bride, are about to walk out into the deep unknown with Him. In this season of transition and change, Jesus is beckoning us to leave our comfort zones and, hand-in-hand, walk out in faith with Him.

The Lord continues to remind me, “Where I lead is the safest and best place to be.” Even as Abraham was told by the Lord to leave what was comfortable and familiar and go to the land that the Lord would reveal to Him, we as the Bride are being called to trust in the guidance of our Bridegroom. Do not fear, for Christ will be faithful, as you obey Him and follow where He leads you.

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered Him faithful who had made the promise.” (Hebrews 11:8-11)

There are exciting adventures and surprises in store, as you continue to follow the Lord’s leading! “‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’—the things God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Awakening to the Fullness of Our Identity

The Lord is rooting out His Bride’s deep fears and insecurities: the very things that have been strongholds in people’s lives. Indeed, He is ridding her of any entanglements that have been holding her back. Jesus Christ is jealous for His Bride, and He is bringing her into a new-found place of freedom that she has not previously known or experienced before! Hindrances are being removed, and grave clothes are coming off. Look and see! The beautifully adorned Bride of Christ is arising and coming forth victoriously!

I believe that the Lord is saying:

“For far too long, the enemy has kept My Bride living beneath her true potential. But now, she will arise and come forth as the beautiful, overcoming, fearless warrior that I have designed her to be. My Bride is the head, and not the tail; she is above, and not beneath” (see Deuteronomy 28:13).

“It is Time to Unsheathe Your Sword!”

“He made my mouth like a sharpened sword,
in the shadow of His hand He hid me;
He made me into a polished arrow
and concealed me in His quiver.” (Isaiah 49:2)

“My Bride, it is time to arise and unsheathe your sword! You will rise from the very circumstances where the enemy had sought to keep you trapped in defeat. Now, you will come forth, wielding your sword of victory. My Bride is not defeated; she is an overcomer, and I have given her the spirit of a warrior. She will slay giants, and she will take back the ruins of former generations (see Isaiah 61:4).

“My Beloved, I am giving you all the spoils; I will give you riches and treasures stored in secret places (see Isaiah 45:3). You shall fling wide the ancient doors that have been previously closed off. You will set the captives free, and bind up the brokenhearted (see Isaiah 61:1).

“The enemy has tried to plague My Bride with fear and insecurity, in hopes of slowing her down. But do not fear, because he knows that when My Bride comes into the reality of who she in Me, she will be fearless and unstoppable! Even now, Her praise will torment the enemy.

“I am now calling forth the Bride of Christ! I am awakening her to the fullness of her identity in Me. She is My radiant, overcoming, warrior-Bride, and she will be a force to be reckoned with.

I see the glorious Bride of Christ, beautifully arrayed in all of her splendor. She will be found coming up out of the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved (Song of Songs 8:5).

Your wilderness season has not been in vain; it has prepared you for the victory you shall now walk in. It is time to eat the fruits of your harvest!

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Eagles: Make Sure There Are No Weights On Your Wings" Kathie Walters, Macon, GA

The Bible Says We Are to, “Lay Aside Every Weight”

I have heard Bill Johnson say, “Faith comes from a place of rest.” I believe this is very important message right now. Too many of God’s people are still struggling and trying and you don’t need to. Eagles don’t flap, they soar! God is calling you to soar in the heavenly places and it’s easy.

Did you realize that religious mindsets produce weights and religious spirits always produce striving in some way? Striving and trying and “working at it” will take you out of the spirit very fast. The Holy Spirit is not striving to make something happen or “working” at it, and God doesn’t really want you working for Him. Rather, He wants you to yield to His Spirit and allow Him to work through you.

We Do the Yielding and He Does the Doing

When you yield and allow God to work through you awesome things happen. “For it is God who works in you, both to will and to do for His good pleasure”(Philippians 2:13).

God is the One who has the ability to change hearts, and do the supernatural things that give glory to His name.

One of the biggest undetected weights that sit on God’s people is what I call false responsibility. The problem with false responsibility is that it can sound good and moral. And so we mean well, but forget who we are and who we are not.

In our efforts to be good Christians and good ministers, we try to do things we have no power to do. We forget that we can’t change anyone or make them do anything. If you try and be the Holy Spirit you will fail, as only God can change the heart, bring true deliverance and save a soul. He is the only one who can do supernatural miracles, sign and wonders.

Recognizing False Responsibility

Did you know that many revivals have been quenched out by false responsibility? Evan Roberts was a young man who was powerfully used by God in the great Welsh revival of 1904. The land of Wales was covered in the glory of God. The bars and pubs closed, as well as many sports events closed. Evan Roberts and others like him just allowed God to do what He wanted and mostly kept out of the way.

Town after town was visited by God, and God’s power was manifest everywhere. People responded to God and God’s presence. After about nine months, a heaviness began to come in some places. But still Evan carried a powerful anointing.

Eventually Evan Roberts had nervous breakdowns and brought a great heaviness on the people. You see, you can’t make anyone respond; you can’t make people do anything. But Evan, I’m sure out of a well-meaning heart, would get upset if people didn’t respond how he thought they should. He would leave the meeting saying they were quenching the Spirit or close the meeting or scold people. But you see, Evan wasn’t the Holy Spirit – it wasn’t His responsibility how people responded to God. That was Holy Spirit’s job.(Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

People in ministry can have nervous breakdowns when they try to be Holy Spirit. There is no true freedom when false responsibility is operating, because the arm of the flesh is there. You will have all kinds of stresses if you try and do what only God can do.

It’s your responsibility to do what God tells you to do. It’s not your responsibility how people receive or respond to Him. That’s a tremendous responsibility and a very heavy weight. It can affect you physically. If you have a word for someone, it’s your responsibility to offer it, but then it’s between that person and God what they do and how they respond.

Our Responsibility Is To Be Spirit-Led

In many churches we are taught to “meet needs,” after all that’s what a good Christian is meant to do isn’t it?

It might surprise you to know that Jesus did not run around Jerusalem or Bethany or Galilee trying to meet people’s needs. In fact, Jesus really did three things: 1) He did what the Father told Him to do 2) He said what the Father told Him to say and 3) He went where the Father told Him to go…THAT’S IT.

The story of Lazarus in John chapter eleven, is a good example of what I mean. If you remember Jesus had a good friend, Lazarus. One day some people came and told Jesus to come to Bethany because Lazarus was dying. Lazarus was a good friend of Jesus, and it seems that Jesus often stayed in his house. Now that was pretty serious don’t you think? They didn’t say he had the flu – they said he was dying.

There is no true freedom when false responsibility is operating, because the arm of the flesh is there. You will have all kinds of stresses if you try and do what only God can do.

You or I would have probably gone running on an electric camel or whatever because we have been raised to meet the needs or minister to the need. Well Jesus didn’t immediately respond to Lazarus’ need did He? He didn’t leave until two days later. That’s a long time to wait when someone is dying.

It took two days to get there, so that’s four days, and when he got to the house Lazarus was already dead, and there was a little reception committee waiting. Some people were complaining and then came the zinger, “If You’d been here this wouldn’t have happened and Lazarus would not have died” (see John 11:21).

I would say that’s some heavy condemnation and blame right there. But Jesus didn’t go to have a religious debate, He went to go to the tomb and speak to Lazarus. And He did!

“Lazarus, come forth.” Jesus spoke out loud.

And guess what? That’s right, Lazarus got up and came out of the cave. If Jesus hadn’t called Lazarus’ name then everyone would have gotten up that day, and there would have been a lot of confusion in Bethany.

Do you know what Jesus says before calling Lazarus from the grave? He says, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:40)

The object of our ministry or moving in God is that God gets the glory. The glory of God never comes on what we do, it comes on what He does. This brings me back to what I said in the beginning. “God doesn’t want us to work for Him but He wants us to yield to Him so that, “He can work through us both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13) (Photo via Pixabay)

Shake off this weight. It’s heavy and it will steal your joy. It will make you struggle and strive. I know ministries all around the world and one thing I can tell you, the sharpest people I know in the spirit realm are the lightest. Weights don’t help you or anyone else, they just keep you in the religious realm.

Bill Johnson added this to my message, “Peace is what guards our hearts and minds. This is where anxiety (and fear) take root. Protecting our peace makes it possible for peace to protect our faith, and faith never comes from striving. Faith comes from rest and from surrender.”

Always move out in peace and rest and faith. In Hebrews 4:10 it says, “He that is entered into His rest, has ceased from his own works as God did from His.” We enter God’s rest through faith, not by works.

God is the One who has the ability to change hearts, and do the supernatural things that give glory to His name. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Rise Up Warrior! Fear and Anxiety Have No Place!" by Helen Madeline Cobanov, Brisbane, Australia

God showed me that a spiritual battle regarding FEAR and ANXIETY was taking place right now over the lives of many of God’s children, as we have been wanting to take steps forward in the spiritual gifts God has given us.

“This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Tim. 1:6-7 NLT)

The Garden

God showed me a picture of a beautiful garden, but what stood out most was a bright yellow shield right in the middle of this garden next to a big tree. He started to show me that the garden represents the place of growing and working in our spiritual gifts. Then I asked Him about the bright yellow shield and He said, “This shield represents a spiritual battle taking place regarding anxiety and fear. Right now, the enemy is targeting the lives of My children as they are growing and stepping up into the calling I have placed on their lives.”

Darts of Anxiety and Fear

Then He took me into an open vision where I saw people working in the garden and then I started to see tiny darts being shot out from darkness. The tips of these DARTS were coated in FEAR and ANXIETY and they were piercing His children.

Suddenly, I felt myself being hit in the back of the head by a dart. I could feel my mind become paralyzed, like my head was sedated. I could still walk, but my head felt like it had just been HIJACKED and quickly my mind started to fill with CONFUSION and DOUBT until all I was doing was walking around in circles. Also all I could hear was an ACCUSING VOICE and a laughter that mocked my every thought as anxiety gripped me.

No matter what I did in the garden, I found myself unable to function. As anxiety and fear started to take hold. I felt more darts hit me in the head, then my ears, then my lips. Then God showed me other people being hit by these darts, paralyzing the part of the body that it hit…I asked God about this and He started to show me the enemy’s plan of attack.

The Enemy’s Plan

The enemy has been prowling in the shadows, ready to pounce at any moment. Once he found an opening, he first targeted the head. This allowed the enemy to infiltrate the mind and thoughts, paralyzing God’s people with fear and anxiety. Then, he targeted the area that people were gifted in or being called to. FEET: where people were to walk in the places God was calling them to. HANDS: for what people were building and working on for the Kingdom. LIPS: for words people were called to preach, speak, worship and sing. EARS: to muffle the voice of God.

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of Believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.” 1 Pet. 5:8-9 NIV

Go to the Shield

As I looked up, all I could see was the yellow shield pulsating with light and I knew a battle was in full swing. I heard a voice call out, “Go to the shield!” So I took shelter between the big tree and the shield.

“For 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.” Eph. 6:12 NIV

As I sat there feeling weak and confused, I felt a nudge to lift my hand and grab hold of the shield…

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Eph. 6:16 NIV

As I did this I felt the strength of God start to fill me as the haze lifted and I started to get clarity. The glory of God covered me, His hands covered my head. I could hear the beating of His heart as He held me and sang the words, like a victory song in the heavens, “It is done! He has won! Fear has no place! Anxiety has no place! Faith, rise up and take your place!”

Rise Up Warrior, It’s Time to Move Forward

FAITH started to RISE UP in me as I heard these words. I felt strong enough to stand again. The atmosphere had shifted and I stood up, firmly holding the shield and I became clothed in a full, radiant ARMOR of GOD. God said, “The battle is won! The arrows and darts of FEAR and ANXIETY are rendered USELESS in the hands of the enemy. Step forward with confidence knowing that I have you! They won’t lay a hand on you! See, I have clothed you with ALL you need. So RISE UP MY WARRIORS, it’s time to MOVE FORWARD. Open your mouths, lift your hands, move your feet! Advance, advance!

“Whoever lives within the secret shadow of Shaddai, hidden in the strength of God Most High, will always be kept safe and feel secure! Here’s how I describe Him: He’s the Hope that holds me, and the Stronghold to shelter me, The only God for me, and my Great Confidence. Yes He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and He will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you.

“You can run under His covering of majesty and hide. His faithfulness is a wrap-around shield keeping you from harm. You will never worry about an attack of demonic forces at night, not have to fear a spirit of darkness coming against you. Don’t fear a thing! Whether by night or by day, demonic danger will not trouble you, nor the powers of evil launched against you. For God will keep you safe and secure, they won’t lay a hand on you!” Ps. 91:1-6 TPT (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Pick Up Your Mantle! A Dream of Family Mantles Waiting For You!" Wanda Alger, Winchester, VA

In a recent dream, I saw mantles. They had been carefully and beautifully crafted from wood by my father and they were just lying around. There were several larger ones and several smaller ones, each one beautifully carved and finished. A couple was standing nearby wanting to purchase them and I was looking at these mantles wondering why. I was not using them and was now faced with a decision about their value.

I woke up knowing that the Lord was highlighting an urgent reminder to the Body of Christ about generational mantles that are lying around and must be picked up again. These are unique gifts and callings, spiritual assignments, and blessings that are passed down through the generations. I knew the mantles in the dream represented these priceless gifts and blessings that were lying around in many families going unnoticed. For some, it is actual assignments or spiritual gifts in a particular area. For others, it is a supernatural grace to continue the family’s legacy of faith and reap an inheritance of spiritual sons and daughters.

This is a call to BOTH generations to pay more attention to God’s generational purposes.

In the Old Testament, not only were mantles passed from one person to another (Elijah to Elisha), but families would pass on their influence, favor, and spiritual authority through generational impartation from fathers to sons (Abraham to Isaac in Genesis 18, Jacob to Joseph in Genesis 48, and Aaron to his sons in Exodus 28). The power of these blessings was highly significant and sought after in order to maintain the family inheritance, both in the natural and in the spiritual.

Know the Value of Your Family Mantles

However, just as in the dream, we can totally miss the value of these blessings and give away our legacy for a bowl of soup like Esau (Hebrews 12:16). Without understanding the covenant call and blessing we’ve inherited, we may forfeit our promise. Will we sell out simply because we’ve forgotten what we have?

I believe the Lord is calling us to consider how we are stewarding the call and blessings of God in our families. Do we understand the spiritual victories that have already been won in our generational line? Are we honoring and embracing the gifts and talents that God has placed within each family member – probably passed down from previous generations? Do we recognize the unique grace upon our households to accomplish a mission or assignment from the Lord, probably started generations earlier? (Photo via Wikipedia)

God’s intent has always been to work generationally. He established a pattern for this through Abraham: “Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him. For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what He has promised him.” (Genesis 18:18-19 NIV)

Abraham’s greatest legacy was his descendants. Through his faithfulness to the Lord, He imparted the ways of God to his children, grandchildren, and future generations. The mantle and assignment that the Lord gave him was faithfully passed down in each successive generation and it expanded and grew until an entire nation was born. The blessings of Abraham are still in operation today because of the reality of generational mantles being faithfully passed (see Galatians 3:7-9).

Special Mantles to Fulfill Mandates

Even in the New Testament, there was always a passing on of blessings, anointing, and grace from spiritual fathers and mothers to sons and daughters (Philippians 2:22). These mantles need to be picked up, embraced, and celebrated for their significant value in fulfilling God’s purposes in this season. Zacharias was told in Luke 1:17 that his son, John, would “…go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous – to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Zacharias blessed his son with this God-given mantle to prepare the way of the Lord and this promise is still unfolding as the generations are being drawn together.

The Lord expounded on this principle the following night when I had another dream:

I was watching two older ladies driving their car down some ancient paths. They were reminiscing about the past and fondly recalling their journeys and life lessons. The only problem was that the roads they were now on were eroded, filled with potholes, and even dangerous. The roads they remembered were no longer there and they had now driven up a mountainside, hanging on a cliff, with no way down. I looked below and there were some young people looking up at the women. However, they were not concerned nor did they rush to help. They merely looked and then continued on their way.

The Scripture that immediately came to mind was Jeremiah 6:16: This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.'”

Listen to God’s Generational Purposes

I believe the Lord is calling us to consider how we are stewarding the call and blessings of God in our families.

This is a call to BOTH generations to pay more attention to God’s generational purposes. Many faithful Believers in the older generation (50s and over) have already walked the godly ways, winning victories and gaining ground in the call to share their faith and expand the Kingdom on the earth. Yet, they may be so preoccupied in remembering “the good old days” they are forgetting to pass the baton to the younger generation. The victories they won will be forgotten if they do not share their stories and inspire and encourage their children and grandchildren in Kingdom ways. This may be why the ancient paths have eroded. Those paths were forged through the pioneering efforts of those who have gone before and these roads need to be maintained by sharing the journey together.

The dream also revealed a common trend in the younger generation. They sometimes see the older generation as getting “hung up” on the past (in the dream, they were literally hanging from the cliff). Their initial response is to hear the stories as irrelevant or outdated. Yet, regardless of the cultural differences between the generations, the spiritual realities and principles still remain. There are time-tested and “familiar ways” that are eternal and powerful, regardless of generational approaches, methodologies, and communication styles.

Both generations need to reach out toward one another in order for the baton to be passed. Just as in a race where there is a point of contact in passing the baton, there needs to be a coming together of past, present, and future in order for the race to be finished. The gifts and calling of God are irrevocable and for some, the call of their forefathers is still active, looking for future generations to finish the task. Without remembering, honoring, and embracing these blessings, we will be destined to repeat our mistakes and miss our intended breakthrough. (Photo via Wikipedia)

“These were all commended for their faith, yet they did not receive what was promised. God had planned something better for us, so that together with us they would be made perfect.” (Hebrews 11:39-40)

Tell Your Children and Grandchildren About the Lord

Even as I was writing up this word, I received a text from a previous ministry associate who just had a dream about this same topic. A dear friend of ours who has gone on to be with the Lord, showed up in this dream to tell my associate he needs to “…tell his children and grandchildren about the Lord.” The urgency of this encounter shook my friend as he realized the significance of his commission to his own household.

There are generational mantles lying around that need to be picked up. They are the calls and gifts of God that have been nurtured through time in YOUR family, waiting for you and your descendants to complete. We are all on the same mission and each generation must do their part in fulfilling God’s assignment – an entire nation can be re-born if we do! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

"An Army of Sons and Daughters to Join the Holy Ghost Division!" by Rob Radosti, Las Vegas, Nevada

 

A radical army of sons and daughters are arising who will invade the enemy’s camp undercover without thinking twice! The Lord is releasing strategic blue prints and weapons of warfare to His children that will cripple the enemy in his tracks – even bringing down evil empires!

Just as there are ranks in armies and among angels, there are ranks in the Body of Christ. The purpose of these ranks, however, is not to be greater than another – but to work together to accomplish a specific operation.

“Just as each of us has one body with many members, and not all members have the same function, so in Christ we who are many are one Body, and each member belongs to one another.” (Romans 12:4-5)

Stay Within Your Rank

One of the easiest ways to fall into defeat and stagnancy is to stay out of your rank – or forget you are on assignment. When you are working together with all of the other ranks, you complete the operation!

The Lord is telling His soldiers to remember their mission, and to stay on assignment. Furthermore, He is recruiting those who are up for special missions and special operations.

I saw a special division of soldier sons and daughters arising known as the “Holy Ghost Division.” This Holy Ghost Division would move into the enemy’s camp swiftly and undercover – nearly undetectable. They are not afraid to be caught, because they enter battle with the authority of the Head of principalities and powers Himself – Jesus!

“And ye are complete in Him, which is the Head of all principality and power.” (Colossians 2:10)

If the enemy can attempt to sneak in to our camp undetected – then we can do the same to him. Are you ready to join the Holy Ghost Division and head into the enemy’s camp undetected to pursue, overtake and recover all?

Recover it All

“And David inquired at the LORD, saying, ‘Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them?’ And he answered him, ‘Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.'” (1 Samuel 30:8)

The Lord is removing the “political ranks” from His divisions, and causing us to work together as a Body again. We, the thriving force of His glory, the Church will overtake and without fail – recover all!

Don’t Forget What You’re Packing

How can a soldier be victorious if he forgets what weapons he possesses?

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4)

Our weapons are divine and our mission is Heaven on earth. Regardless of what the enemy throws at us, our weapons are mighty through God! The enemy has no weapons that are mighty through God, he only has lies. A disarmed army can only yell threats.

Are you ready to join?

“Join me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. A soldier refrains from entangling himself in civilian affairs, in order to please the One who enlisted him” (2 Timothy 2:3-4). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

"Free Yourself Up to Minister in this Great Move of God! It’s Happening Now!" by Edie Bayer, Houston, TX

 

The Lord gave me a most encouraging word and He is anxious that I share it with you: “Free yourself up to minister in this great move of God! It’s happening now!”

Recently in prayer one morning, the Lord showed me a front-end loader dumping its bucket of granite into the back of a pickup truck, over and over again. This is what you have been in training for your entire life – to carry “The Rock,” Jesus! It is your “job” to fill up, pour out, and fill up again and again with The Rock! He is the front-end loader, and you are the pickup truck! Let’s get to work!

The Lord says, “I am coming, but not like you expect.”

The Lord gave me two visions of Himself. In one, He was a lion, walking across a rocky mountain top. He had red velvet and gold on His crown. We locked gazes periodically as He made His way across the rugged terrain. I knew that He always knew where I was – I was always in His sight.

In the other vision, Jesus was on a white horse on a bed of clouds. He had on His crown and His sash. His horse was magnificent! Its long mane caught my attention, as it pawed at the ground, first with its left hoof, and then its right. Jesus’ horse was anxious to move!

Wisdom and Strategy for the Greatest Move of God

After these visions, the Lord gave me some very specific instructions for myself, but for all of us, He said:

“I am giving you wisdom and a roadmap, a strategy. You have the skills necessary for this great move. I am tempering your will, and your emotions, to stabilize you throughout. That is why you have been in emotional upheaval, to teach you balance and control.

“I am moving among My people. Some will be pushed into position. Some will be thrust, and some will just POP onto the front as I move. I move and sway among you, and your actual, physical bodies make way for advancement.”

As He spoke, I remembered a movie I saw once. It was of the Holy Spirit moving through a crowd in South America somewhere. As He did He cut a swath, an actual path, through the crowd of people. Human eyes could not see His form, but their bodies sure moved out of the way for Him!

Your Destiny is Guaranteed!

“My hand will be on you, as I push and sift and sort whomever I will – those who will be forerunners for this great move. However, you will all be involved! Maybe not at the very beginning, but you surely will not miss it! You who hear My voice will all be involved to some degree, at a certain level. This will be revealed to you ‘as you go’ (see Luke 17:14).

Your place has been determined. Your position has been determined. Your advancement has been predetermined, and your destiny is guaranteed,” says the Lord God, Jehovah.

“For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren. And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].” (Romans 8:29-30)

“Every single thing you have ever done, no matter how small or seemingly meaningless, has given you a skill, or honed one you already had, for the great move. You have been in training. Some have learned patience, others control. Some have learned to keep their wits about them, while others learned skills necessary to help others learn what they needed to know. Some have been used of Me, unbeknownst to them, to help push, shove or sand and mold others into the shape that I desire.”

You Are The Chosen Vessel

“‘O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?’ says the Lord. ‘Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.'” (Jeremiah 18:6)

“This is one great ‘Potter’s Wheel!’ The oil is the anointing that I use to shape the clay, on the outside and the inside of the vessel. You are the chosen vessel and I have made of you what I will for this current season, for this fragment of time. Every hardship, every joy, has shaped you into what I desire you to be, inside and out. You look marvelous in My eyes.

“I have entrusted you with My greatest treasure – each other. You are shaping and honing each other by the work of My hands. Each act you perform has an effect on every person, and for eternity.

So, if there was any doubt that you are chosen for this move of God, it must be totally gone now! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

"Speak to the Dry Bones and Prophesy Into Your Future!" Dr. Sandie Freed, Bedford, TX

Recently, I was reminded of an article that I wrote for the Elijah List in 2014 concerning receiving a fresh anointing to speak to the dry bones. I felt strongly that I was to re-submit the article and also add some updated revelation concerning this subject. Though we are experiencing much breakthrough, I have become keenly aware that there are still many who need this word of encouragement. God speaks prophetically in different times and seasons. I believe this word is in due season now.

The Lord is saying again: “It’s time to rise up with the impartation of Ezekiel to prophesy to the dry bones. For what seems impossible to the natural eye is now possible to access through the eye of faith and a fresh anointing. The time to access the unseen is now.”

Believer, there is a fresh anointing—a fresh mantle—for each of us to receive from Heaven. This anointing will release life to every area that appears desolate, dry and dead. This anointing is also coupled with resurrection power! Saints of God, it’s time to begin to access the unseen with a fresh strength, focus and empowerment!

The Same Power Lives in You

Imagine life coming into your very own situations which appear dead and desolate. God is breathing life into every area of hope deferred right now!

Allow me to encourage you today. Take a moment, right now, to pause and reflect on the truth that God is empowering you. He is placing a fresh mantle upon you so that you can begin to prophesy and speak to what appears dead, hopeless and cut-off so as to witness fruitfulness and fulfillment once again. Rom 8:10-11 tells us that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is also in us because He lives in us. I believe this means that certainly we will also be resurrected from the dead, as Christ Himself was, but also we have a divine power within us to resurrect dead situations or promises that appear completely cut-off and separated from us.

“But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.” Romans 8:10-11 (NIV)

When God points out any area which we are to begin to prophesy into, He gives us the power (as we speak His perfect will) to shift what appears impossible. Many Believers have felt “cut-off” from their future. How is that? How can we be cut-off or separated from fulfilling destiny? Dear ones, the answer lies within the revelation we receive as we do a careful study of God’s now time while also studying Ezekiel 37. Let’s delve into that together. Allow me to continue to write more about being “cut-off” from destiny. Precious Believer, let me assure you: It’s time to possess your prophetic promises!

The Time is Now

Hebrews 4 is one of my favorite chapters. In this particular chapter, we are encouraged to mix our faith with the word of the Lord and enter into our Promised Land. This Promised Land is a land full of promises as well as a place of rest. We know today that as New Covenant Believers, this land is not a simple piece of real estate. Jesus Christ is our Promised Land of rest. We rest in Him and the finished work at the Cross.

Just as Israel had to go to war for its Promised Land, we also face an enemy in our territory! The Lord also spoke to me very clearly that in this season we will contend against the foreboder. Be on guard! The foreboding spirit is a lying demonic spirit that falsely prophesies to us! It speaks totally opposite of what God speaks concerning us and our destiny. It is a stronghold that is directly connected to the occult. The enemy will attempt to distract your focus from expecting breakthrough to an expectation of bleak hopelessness. (Photo via Max Pixel)

We are encouraged that our time is now, or today, and that while it is still today, we are to possess what God has given to us! (See Hebrews 4:1-6.) God is mantling you to speak your future into existence—to speak to what appears cut-off and lost—and possess what is rightfully yours as a son or daughter of the King of kings! How do we do that together?

Prophesy into Your Future

Ezekiel was an example of someone who was mantled with authority to speak into a situation with the purpose of witnessing God’s will come forth. In Ezekiel 36:21-24, we read where Israel had been scattered and it was God’s will to bring them back together and bring them into their own land. Then, in Ezekiel 37:1-8, we read how God instructed Ezekiel to speak into a desolate situation.

Please take some time and read these passages. As you meditate over the spiritual significance of this Scriptural passage, you will notice that there are several dimensions of divine prophetic fulfillment to which we also can attach our faith and witness the resurrection of what was once dead, lost or cut-off from destiny.

When God instructs us to prophesy the word of the Lord, the future and destiny begin to come together in order to become fulfilled. Can you just stop a moment and use your imagination? When Ezekiel prophesied God’s will over those bones, the bones began to come together. Imagine dry, dead bones being resurrected by the word of the Lord and coming together for completion!

Now, imagine your scattered prophecies—unfulfilled and being resurrected and coming together once again. Prophecy by prophecy, word by word, rising up with life and coming together to bring you into fulfillment! Wow! How awesome is that?

God “lifed” the words which were spoken! Yes, God put His very breath into those bones to which Ezekiel was prophesying. Imagine life coming into your very own situations which appear dead and desolate. God is breathing life into every area of hope deferred right now! Today!

It’s time to possess your prophetic promises!

There was resurrection power released into those dry bones! Dear ones, once again, let me remind you that as you prophesy into your destiny, the same power which resurrected Christ is also alive in you. Expect breakthrough!

You will stand! We will not be defeated in this season. He intends for us to stand in the victory that was already won at the Cross! This means that we need to attach our faith to what He is promising today and stand in that promise. You are no longer “cut-off” from being completed—in every area! He is promising to bring the details of your fulfillment together.

Sons and daughters, this is your time to let go of all doubt and unbelief. Let go of religious mindsets that would cause you to believe that God has to do something according to your personal expectations. God will breathe into your situations, yes; but His ways of bringing things together might challenge your mindsets.

In my book, Letting Go of Your Limitations: Experiencing God’s Transforming Power, I discuss at great length areas that might be holding you back from experiencing and demonstrating the power of God. I write about the need to let go of:

• Pressure to achieve results (due to religious performance)
• Pride
• Reliance on yourself
• Efforts to please God on your own
• Defeatist attitudes
• Squelched passions
• Hardened hearts
• Disappointments and much more!

God has so much for you to accomplish through His strength. When the bones came together as Ezekiel prophesied, it was GOD who brought the completeness—not Ezekiel! Ezekiel’s responsibility was to be obedient to the directives of the Lord. I’m confident that you, precious one, desire to be obedient! So, speak to every dry area and believe!

Know that I’m standing with each of you for your breakthroughs! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
