Yesterday I suddenly became aware of the presence of many angels. These angels were descending from heaven with what looked like folded fabric in their arms. These fabrics were many different colors but all had gold threads woven throughout the hems and edges. They were thick and expensive-looking materials that had the appearance of something designed for royalty.
Then, in my spirit, I saw how the Accuser has been accusing many of the saints of God day and night— relentlessly. His goal was to wear them down and cause them to lose sight of their identity in Christ that had given them strength and authority to do all that they had been doing. Many had become disoriented and felt completely alone as this demonic assignment was unleashed upon them.
With every accusation, it was like filth being thrown upon their white garments. Many of the saints of God were being accused with such violence and repetition that they felt cornered and traumatized from the ongoing and relentless assault.
The scene reminded me of the scene in Zechariah 3 where Satan is accusing Joshua the High Priest as he is wearing filthy garments. But just like in that story, the Lord is present and he rebukes the Accuser and calls his angels to come and change Joshua’s filthy garments to clothe him with clean ones. He restores him and instructs him in truth.
As I walked into church Sunday I became once again aware of these angels holding the folded fabric but this time I knew that they were royal garments. The Lord has rebuked the Accuser and is removing the garments that are soiled with filthy accusations (some based on truth and some not), his angels have come to put royal garments of the Lord’s righteousness and identity upon his people. These are garments that restore honor, dignity, calling, position and purity. The righteousness of Christ is covering every place of exposure and nakedness, every place of shame and failure, every place of accusation.
Each garment had also had a turban that guards your minds against the false thoughts and narrative that the enemy has unleashed. The mind of Christ and his thoughts— along with the peace of God that guards our hearts and minds is being restored to many. The torment of your mind will be replaced with peace, truth, and salvation.
This has been a violent and vicious attack against many to stop the Kingdom from advancing. But an overcoming spirit is coming upon his people who will rise in even greater authority and purity than before.
The accuser has also unleashed accusations against God and against truth like no other time throughout the world. It is creating a narrative of confusion, hate, rage, and division. The spirit of deception has been unleashed on a level that most of us have never witnessed. And yet, I believe that those who have had to overcome this great assignment of accusation against them will arise from this troubled place— this dark wilderness— clothed anew, purified, and freed from areas of weakness or sin that was present before this great assault. They will come forth stronger and have authority over deception and accusations that will begin to set many free. They will carry a sword of the Spirit that is able to divide truth from deception and soul from spirit. They will be able to rightly divide and will be used to set many free from the division that has come to keep them from God and his truth.
They will have a spirit of overcoming that is founded in the absolute knowledge of the grace and mercy of God. They will be rescued and saved from this assignment to take them captive. But these are prisoners of hope that never abandoned the hope of Christ in the midst of this torment.
Stand still and watch the salvation of God set you free! When you’ve done all you know to do— STAND! Joshua the High Priest merely stood while the mercy of God took over to restore him.
Your identity in Christ will be even more sure than before you faced this attack. Your heart will be even more purified and your belt of truth will have been tightened!
Do not despair but stand and see the salvation of the Lord come to rescue and save you.
