This Prophetic Word is titled It happens in the darkness. We are in an intense season of warfare and this post is to give you some pointers of things to come, help you adjust your mindset towards warfare, and give you some prayers that will help you.
When you see certain things happening, you need to understand what it actually means. This way instead of being depressed about it you can rejoice because you know GOD is doing something really powerful in this season and that is why things look the way they do. It’s shifting your mindset about spiritual warfare.
I’ve broken this up into different sections. ALL of it concerns you but you may see each section manifesting at different points or times in your life. I could’ve broken this into 2 prophetic words because it is quite loooong but while warfare is a necessary part of our Christian walk, it is not my favorite subject to address. Therefore, I really don’t want to be talking about this next week. I figured I would give you all of it at once. Sorry, breath and try not to choke! LOL!! Some of this is heavy stuff so feel free to take a breather in between to digest and come back. You want to read all of it because it concerns you. The section about “Them” I might come back to that at another time. Let see what the Lord says. For now the Lord wanted me to bring it to your attention so that it is on your radar.
Warfare is a GOOD sign.
I want you to know something, the warfare is actually a good sign. I know you would much rather it go away but the truth is the warfare is a sign that you are much closer than you think.
The enemy usually attacks at 2 points:
1.When you are leaving what God has told you to leave. I’m talking actively walking away. For some of you running away and you are being attacked in your departure. It is like the Pharaoh chasing the Israelites when they were doing what God has called them to do. To give you an example of what this would look like…
- God says leave this job and move into ministry and as soon as you make the decision to start putting a plan in place to save money, your other sources of income that would allow you to do that falls apart. Now you are financially unstable and scared to make a move with no money since the only money you have is from that job that you are suppose to leave. That’s an attack.
- Or you suddenly have a health crisis so you have to remain where you are.
- Or everything else starts going wrong in your life so you decide to wait a little for things to settle down before you make a move. The ground under you just starts moving in the wrong direction
- Or you are trying to entangle yourself from a relationship and the demonic spirits attached to that person is now coming after you.
2.Warfare also happens when you are entering the promise. Getting ready to receive the blessings.
Most of us have a hard time enduring these attacks, so instead of moving forward you “pump the brakes” and you start waiting for a better opportunity to move forward.
Do you know what you did if you pump the brakes? What looked like wisdom is actually you causing your own delay. If the Lord told you to do it now, then you have to go forward.
The truth is none of the things that the enemy uses to stop you can actually stop you. It’s a mirage. Fear and intimidation tactics. This is just a diversion to cause you to feel insecure and afraid to move forward and most of the time it works!
To leave you get the Pharaoh spirit to stop you from leaving then to enter into your promised land you get every other demon coming at you to stop you from taking that ground. Because you are basically dispossessing them, evicting them from your land and taking it.
You are going to have a fight. Coming out and going in.
So what do you do?
In spite of what it looks like, DO IT ANYWAY! You have to get over the fear of the fight. Get used to everything falling apart around you as you take the land. If you sit around waiting for the “perfect time” it never comes. And then you become the curator of your own delays because of some demons that can’t stop you anyway!
To everything is is timing, opportunity and there is a cadence in the spirit. Do not lose the rhythm or the momentum of the Spirit.
Dr. Charles Stanley says “obey God and leave the consequences to Him” Because let’s face it, if God said it then it WILL work out.
Prayer: God, where there is fear I bind and cast it out and loose power, love and a sound mind. Give me courage to move forward with all the things You have asked me to do, in Jesus name, Amen
I don’t think I’ve seen this many dragons flying around in the spirit. Are you seeing them too? Dreams about dragons? Even this is a good sign. How can this be a good sign? Here’s the mindset shift for you.
Revelation 12:1-5 “As I looked, a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman came into view clothed in the radiance of the sun, standing with the moon under her feet, and she was crowned with a wreath of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was painfully pregnant and was crying out in the agony of labor. 3 Then a second sign appeared in heaven, ominous, foreboding: a great red dragon, with seven crowned heads and ten horns. 4 The dragon’s tail brushed one-third of the stars from the sky and hurled them down to the earth. The dragon crouched in front of the laboring woman, waiting to devour her child the moment it was born.
So, the mindset shift is that YOU are about to birth your promise. You only see the dragons when the birthing is upon us. There are many dragons. So many of you right now are exactly where you need to be. It’s time!
DO NOT FEAR THE DRAGON! Why? Verse 5
5 She gave birth to a male child, who is destined to rule the nations with an iron scepter. Before the dragon could bite and devour her son, the child was whisked away and brought to God and His throne.
Explain to me how the dragon can be crouched before the laboring woman and still manage NOT to bite and devour the child??? He was right there in front of her and STILL missed it! LOL!! He has eyes but he still cannot see it. Because this is a supernatural birthing!! Even when it is looking him straight in the face he STILL cannot stop it!! Thank you Jesus! Whom the Lord has blessed let no man curse! Supernaturally GOD protected that child.
Prayer: God protect the promise that You are birthing in my life in this season. I pray for a supernatural birthing and that You will whisk away this child into the heavenlies before the enemy has a chance to steal it or devour it, in Jesus name, Amen
YOUR birthing will take place and ain’t no dragon is going to stop or steal it in Jesus name! Cover it under the blood of Jesus
Hey MAGI, come back and tell me where it is
The enemy doesn’t know everything. Most of what he has is from watching your movements and how you respond to things. He also gets his information through what you say. So when you are quiet about what is happening with you, there’s no way for him to know. It is a guessing game for him. What I’ve observed in the church is that how he gets his information is from the prophetic people. The ones who can hear from the Lord. He sends in his little spies and they grab the prophetic word to see what they can devour or discern so they can stop the blessings of the people of God. This is why you have to watch what you are saying.
How to spot them…You ever meet someone that is super inquisitive? They want to know everyone’s business and actually know what’s going on with everyone. How is that??? That is a monitoring spirit. The enemy doesn’t know so he has to send spies to gather the information. Jezebel needed her 450 false prophets because they were the ones feeding her the information. It doesn’t matter how powerful or scary these people appear to be, they do not know everything!!! Unless you tell them or someone with a prophetic gifting picks it up and gives them the information.
7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.”
9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
So here you have Herod, the bad guy, who needed the Magis to tell him when the star would show up. And even after knowing that, he still needed them to tell him the exact location of the Baby Jesus after they found Him. No matter how powerful Herod was, he DIDN’T KNOW!!! The Magis are the good guys. When the Magis were reporting to him they had no idea that his intentions were evil because he lied to them. Lying and deceptive. BUT GOD! Revealed to them and told them not to go back to him with the information.
There are many of you that are the Magis. You know exactly what is going on and you can even see it in the spirit around you. You’re not a bad person but you need to be careful of the “Herods”. These are the ones that are running around the church and conferences wanting to know and hear about EVERYTHING you are seeing and hearing in the spirit. They want you to tell them what God is showing you about other people and you are not even picking up that these people are no good. You need to stop reporting to them. Use wisdom. People’s blessings can sometimes not manifest because it was stopped and stolen in the spirit because some well-intentioned Christian spoke out of turn. And then what happens is you never see what God shared with you manifest in their life. Who did you tell it to?
Prayer: Holy Spirit, put a guard over my mouth so that I may only speak what You want me to speak and when I should speak. Forgive me for revealing personal things that You have shown me about others and myself with those who it doesn’t concern. I pray for the gift of discerning of spirits and the ability to know when I need to remain silent. I do not want to be used as a tool or a spy for the enemy, in Jesus name, Amen
Giants, yeah you know “they” were going to show up at some point
Before you read any further you need to >>>>>>watch this video<<<<<<<<<
I’m not even going to give it a platform by naming it on this site. Hereinafter, referred to it as “them” and “they”. I am pretty sure his audience wanted to know how to do it too, right? This means “they” are going to multiply.
Listen, there is a them against us and the bible has made it abundantly clear
12 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.
I want you to know that fighting against others about whether or not they should take the “jab” is pointless. Being upset at your family members because of their political view is pointless. You shouldn’t be sitting around upset at other people for things like this. It is the plan of the enemy to divide and conquer. A house divided cannot stand (Matthew 12:25). The more he can divide us the weaker we become because one can chase a thousand, two ten thousand…
If there’s less of us fighting together we can be over powered. The bible tells us that that threefold cord is not easily broken (Ecc 4:9-12). So, this season of massive division that we’ve seen was one big plan of the enemy. So that when “they” enter the scene we are not unified. Do you get it now? Stop arguing with people
So now I am sure you are thinking “AAAHHHHHH, I’m not ready for this!!!!” “I don’t want to deal with this!!!” Yeah, I understand. Neither did I but guess what? They are here. The question you should be asking yourself is Why now? In the past, the media would never let a story like this go public. Governments wouldn’t even acknowledge or talk about it before but for some reason now they are ok with talking about it. So, why????
Hmmmm, sounds like there is some plan getting ready to be unveiled. You can only unveil something like this after you desensitize people to it. You have to make it normal. Hmmmmm
You know what? Remember in the 2021 word of the year I said that after everything happens we are going to lock arms and run together? I knew then something was going to happen that would unify us. Something that would cause us to put aside all of our differences and unify.
For sure there is a division coming but what is diving us now is not what God is trying to divide. So we need to put down our heated words and word curses against each other and pick up the Sword of the Spirit and get ready to fight the REAL war. Against the real enemy which is not our Christian brothers and sisters.
What do you do next?
- Sit with the Lord and deal with the fear of it. I understand. We all have levels of faith and courage and sometimes we can see something and think there is no way I am going to be able to handle this. I’m here to tell you, Gideon, you are braver than you think. Welcome to the promise land, there are giants. But first, you need to sit in the presence of the Lord and ask Him to take away any fear you may have regarding this subject.
- Ask God, what is this exactly? You need to hear it directly from Him. The church has not really started talking about this yet so now you need to have your own word from the Lord about it. Write down what He says so that whatever you hear after, you already know what the Lord told you. I didn’t tell you to go to the prophet of the day, or to ask your pastor. No, I said ask God for yourself. After HE tells you then you can ask other people.
- Ask God how you protect yourself about this? And, if you should be engaging this thing? You need to know ahead of time. Don’t wait until this thing gets worse and that’s when you’re trying to figure out what is going on.
All of these are important. The best time to get a word from the Lord is when you haven’t yet formed a solid opinion on something and there aren’t many prophetic voices or pastors talking about it. You will hear much clearer then.
This is not something you can afford to get wrong.
Do you remember the word I shared title It’s so subtle. Some of you thought it was referring to the jab, and I am not saying that it can’t be that, but I distinctly felt in my spirit that it was going to be some false teaching that was going to come after the pandemic that would prove dangerous for many. My gut says it has to do with this subject. If your pastor or some prophet comes with some teaching on how to engage these things and they are wrong, phew! That would not be a good thing. This is why you can’t let others tell you how to handle this, you have to get it from the Lord yourself. Hear God for yourself on this.
Once you have heard and you know how to handle it for yourself and you’ve stepped out of the fear of this, then you have to talk to your children about it. You don’t want them picking up stuff in school. The kids are going to be talking about this. You don’t need to go into a deep conversation, God can lead you how to talk about it. You just need to state your position on it so your child also knows how to respond if someone at school brings it up.
Yes, this is a whole new level. All I know is this, if you are not saved and have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior you need to do that quickly because you are not going to like what happens next. Accept Jesus Now.
12 Spies went into the land and saw the giants, only 2 said Yes, Let’s go because God said we can do it! That’s the remnant. It’s a very small group. But, if you think about it they never lost to a giant. Isn’t that a shame? I wonder how differently the 10 would respond if they had the foresight to know that they would never lose to the very thing they were afraid of. Remember, it is a fear and intimidation tactic of the enemy to make you feel like the grasshopper. YOU ARE GOING TO WIN ANYWAY!!!
Prayer: Remove any fear I have regarding this subject. Give me your perspective on it. What exactly is this? How should I handle it? How do I protect myself from it? Should I be engaging this? I need to hear directly from You. Thank you for the wisdom, understanding, knowledge and discernment You will impart to me on this subject. No matter the size of the giant, You are bigger and You hold all things in Your hands. Thank You for the mindset shift and preparation that You will impart to me on this, in Jesus name, Amen.
It Happens in the Darkness
I have shared this scripture before but the Lord is having me share it again and He has pointed out a key in this scripture that He wants me to share with you….
The Lord’s Glory in Zion
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord shines over you.
2 For look, darkness will cover the earth,
and total darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will shine over you,
and his glory will appear over you.
3 Nations will come to your light,
and kings to your shining brightness.
4 Raise your eyes and look around:
they all gather and come to you;
your sons will come from far away,
and your daughters on the hips of nursing mothers.
5 Then you will see and be radiant,
and your heart will tremble and rejoice,
because the riches of the sea will become yours
and the wealth of the nations will come to you.
6 Caravans of camels will cover your land—
young camels of Midian and Ephah—
all of them will come from Sheba.
They will carry gold and frankincense
and proclaim the praises of the Lord.
7 All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered to you;
the rams of Nebaioth will serve you
and go up on my altar as an acceptable sacrifice.
I will glorify my beautiful house.
8 Who are these who fly like a cloud,
like doves to their shelters?
9 Yes, the coasts and islands will wait for me
with the ships of Tarshish in the lead,
to bring your children from far away,
their silver and gold with them,
for the honor of the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel,
who has glorified you.
10 Foreigners will rebuild your walls,
and their kings will serve you.
Although I struck you in my wrath,
yet I will show mercy to you with my favor.
11 Your city gates will always be open;
they will never be shut day or night
so that the wealth of the nations
may be brought into you,
with their kings being led in procession.
12 For the nation and the kingdom
that will not serve you will perish;
those nations will be annihilated.
13 The glory of Lebanon will come to you—
its pine, elm, and cypress together—
to beautify the place of my sanctuary,
and I will glorify my dwelling place.
14 The sons of your oppressors
will come and bow down to you;
all who reviled you
will fall facedown at your feet.
They will call you the City of the Lord,
Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
15 Instead of your being deserted and hated,
with no one passing through,
I will make you an object of eternal pride,
a joy from age to age.
16 You will nurse on the milk of nations,
and nurse at the breast of kings;
you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior
and Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 I will bring gold instead of bronze;
I will bring silver instead of iron,
bronze instead of wood,
and iron instead of stones.
I will appoint peace as your government
and righteousness as your overseers.
18 Violence will never again be heard of in your land;
devastation and destruction
will be gone from your borders.
You will call your walls Salvation
and your city gates Praise.
19 The sun will no longer be your light by day,
and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you.
The Lord will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your splendor.
20 Your sun will no longer set,
and your moon will not fade;
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and the days of your sorrow will be over.
21 All your people will be righteous;
they will possess the land forever;
they are the branch I planted,
the work of my hands,
so that I may be glorified.
22 The least will become a thousand,
the smallest a mighty nation.
I am the Lord;
I will accomplish it quickly in its time.
I know you have read this scripture before. However, this is actually a scripture for the season of warfare. Verse 2. Read Verse 2 again.
2 For look, darkness will cover the earth,
and total darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will shine over you,
and his glory will appear over you.
This entire chapter is about the Lord’s blessings and glory shining upon His people. Upon the remnant. Upon this end time company. The question is, WHEN does it shine? Verse 2, in darkness. This ONLY happens when there is darkness. Just darkness? No, TOTAL darkness on everyone else EXCEPT YOU!!!
When it is a mess!!! When it’s super dark. When everything looks totally chaotic. When everything is being shaken. THAT is your cue. It’s showtime! The ball is already rolling on this thing. So what exactly are YOU waiting on?? Get moving!!!!
If you sit around and wait for it to become light again, you missed it! If it turns light that means the remnant has already risen into their position. And, you’re looking at THEIR light. Read the entire chapter again. The wealth transfer already occurred (verse 5-8). The restoration already happened (verse 10-11). It happens in the darkness. When nothing looks right. When the world is in chaos and running around trying to figure out what is going on, you are ready to step forth in it. And, when you do…boy oh boy. You will SHINE.
Your light is going to be seen from miles away. Not only are you going to shine this will attract many to you. You’re not going to need to do a thing! They will come to you!! You will hit a season of UPGRADE (verse 17) and acceleration as you have never seen before (verse 22).
But all of this happens in the darkness. The warfare is a good sign! It is a sign of your VICTORY! Keep going and don’t let some little two bit devil delay your movements or stop you. Do it afraid! The minute you step out, all of these things that try to stop you will CEASE because the enemy will realize he has been defeated!
You may even look like a mess when you start but I can assure you that you will not look like a mess when you end!!!! In Jesus name! It is happening NOW.
