I had a vision this week and I saw MANY who were battle-weary right now and the warfare especially over the last few weeks had really worn them down and wearied them. In this encounter, I saw a weariness of soul, but I also saw a demonic attack of weariness over many that was like a thick heavy blanket that was attempting to bring a feeling of wanting to withdraw, a luring Into a place of complacency and I saw this luring coming thick and fast against many to keep them from being vigilant to be In the WORD of God.
The Lord showed me that there is a major battle over the revelation and awakening taking place by the Spirit of God as believers are going DEEP into the Word of God.
There is such a deep AWAKENING and ACTIVATION taking place in the hearts of believers as they spend time in the Word in this hour that is causing them to wake up to their authority in Christ in greater ways, there is DEEP revelatory insight and wisdom God is releasing through His Word right now that are keys for the new era.
I heard the Lord say “The battle is over My people being deep in My Word because My WORD will bring the BREAKER.”
I began to see many battles believers have faced over the last few weeks and the intense battles many have had with the spirit of witchcraft that has come to twist and attempt to steal the revelation that the Lord is releasing to His people right now of what He is doing and what is coming.
I had a dream this week where the Lord showed me an attack of the enemy was coming against many and this attack was like a ‘gas mask’ that was being put over the faces of many believers to anesthetize them, cause them to go to sleep, to suffocate life and revelation out of them and cause them to not stand strong in the authority and awakening the Lord was decreeing over their lives. As I sought the Lord on what His answer was to this attack being brought by the enemy, He spoke these words “MY WORD IS THE ANSWER”.
It is a time unlike any other to KNOW the Word of God, be DEEP in the Word of God, and meditate on the Word of God DAY and NIGHT. (Joshua 1:8) It is a time unlike any other to meditate upon the Word and FILL yourself with the Word of God.
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your Word.” (Psalm 119:114)
It is imperative right now in the midst of such battle that we as God’s people KNOW His Word, know what He is speaking through His Word and we pick up our swords and FIGHT with the Word of God.
“The rarest treasures of life are found in His truth. That’s why I prize God’s word like others prize the finest gold. Nothing brings the soul, such sweetness, as seeking His living words.” (Psalm 19:20)
I AM AWAKENING THE WARRIORS AND THE REVELATION THAT MY WORD IS LIKE FIRE AND A HAMMER
I heard the Lord say “I am awakening the warriors and the revelation that My Word is like a fire and a hammer”
“Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29)
Upon us right now is an awakening that has begun to the privilege that it is to hear His voice, to carry His revelation, to steward it with purity and integrity and the POWER OF HIS VOICE.
We are coming further into a time where we will see the POWER of the voice of the Lord through the logos and His Rhema Word that is going to manifest His power as we have never seen before. The Lord showed me the enemy is coming hard against keeping many distracted, complacent, weary, and out of the Word, because HIS VOICE of truth is going to bring major demonstrations of His power, shifts, overturns of injustice, and breakthrough.
The sense surrounded me that the Lord is reminding His people of their authority and the warriors that they are in Him. They are not complacent sleepy victims, but awakened warriors who have been given ALL authority in Christ (Luke 10:19, Matthew 28:18). The Lord showed me MANY have been “steamrolled” by attacks lately, but there is FRESH WIND of the Spirit blowing fiercely upon them to bring to remembrance who they are in Christ and that they are overcomers.
I also saw a shaking in this awakening taking place that was bringing such a deep awareness to God’s people that we live by the Spirit and not the SOUL.
ENCOUNTERS WITH THE FIRE OF GOD BREAKING OFF WEARINESS AND AWAKENING THE FIERCE WARRIORS
I began to see weary saints all across the world making a decision to go deeper in the Word than ever before, to position themselves in the Word daily, meditating upon it, and suddenly I saw the fire of God falling upon them, heavily. As the fire of His presence fell strongly upon them, I saw weariness breaking off, I saw awakening taking place at deep levels and spiritual “SIGHT AND INSIGHT” beginning to BLAZE. What I was watching take place was like a form of personal revival, but it was even deeper than that. These encounters with the fire of God’s presence were deeper than they have ever been, and the eyes of the saints were suddenly blazing with spiritual sight. Scales were falling off eyes. Clarity was being restored, but not only restored but also INCREASED. In the midst of their intense battles with a spirit of witchcraft and weariness their hearts continued to cry out “God, give me eyes to see You and what the Spirit is saying”. Their hearts cry in the midst of the battle had been heard by the Father and this was a moment of encounter so DEEP that the confusion was breaking off, clarity was being restored and the awakening of the FIERCE WARRIOR was taking place.
Suddenly I could hear Matthew thundering in the spirit:
“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12 ESV)
“From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the realm of heaven’s kingdom is bursting forth, and passionate people have taken hold of its power.” (Matthew 11:12 TPT)
As I saw these fierce warriors coming out of the dust of weariness, with renewed strength and fire blazing within them, the understanding came to me by the Spirit of God that these attacks of the enemy that have come so hard against them was because the enemy was SO AFRAID of the awakening taking place within them of their authority in Christ and the ground they were about to take. The new lands weren’t going to be taken in the future, they were being taken NOW, and these attacks came to ‘wind’ God’s people and knock many off their feet, but the Spirit of God came like fierce wind and a blazing fire and caused a strengthening of the weak knees, with empowerment like never before to slay the giants in the new land of jurisdiction and governmental authority the Lord was leading them into. Awakened they moved forward with a deeper revelation of the POWER of the Word of God, the power of the VOICE of the Lord, and the power in the name of Jesus to see the strongholds of the enemy come down and the Kingdom of God extended in unprecedented ways.
