This was a word which I had in 2018 when praying but I feel led to share it again in this season: I sensed the Spirit was saying this to me:
“In the beginning was The Word and the Word was God. There is power in My Word. Whatever, I declare from heaven concerning a matter or a nation will be performed. My angels act on my commands. My Word is powerful. My Word is creative but also destructive. It can build up or it can tear down and root out.
Whenever I speak, My Word will perform whatever it is sent forth to achieve. I have declared a new time and season – a new day for the church. Too long she has been weak, ineffective and struggling like a new born babe. Now she will rise up with renewed energy & VIGOUR. She will have learned how to use the tools with which I have armed her so that My Kingdom can advance. It is time to take the Kingdom (God’s) and push forward. To take the light into the darkness.
I do not need a vast army to achieve my purposes. Only those who are willing to persevere, willing to count the cost, those who are bold, those who have courage, who take their strength from Me. Those will be part of my army. Those who are skilled in My Word, those who know their position, those who listen and obey. They will receive the words to speak and declare in My name. The will see My wonder working power at work. They will be my vessels to bring healing, holiness and salvation to nations.
I am on the move. My body the Church needs to discern where I am leading in this season. It is not time for the faint hearted, the men pleasers, and the timid. This is the season for those who fear the Lord and show reverence and fear. Who love righteousness and hate wickedness, injustice and wrong – to be willing to stand up and be counted. To be the carriers of My presence into all situations. Everyday situations where I have placed them – whether home, work, family, government, schools – everywhere they find themselves. They can have an impact.
Now rise up and go to war on the enemy -Satan. Pull down his strongholds and declare that his time has come to an end in this region. There is a new King in town (Jesus). A new Kingdom (Jesus’) being established and the enemy (Satan) is to be trodden underfoot and trampled. Satan’s troops, his spirits will have to flee in the presence of My army. Gideon’s army is on the march. It is time to advance. Take the gates and push back the darkness. “
