June 15 – 8:45 am
All of a sudden … everywhere I turn, I am seeing words about Warriors Arising! I too have had this word burning in my heart. It burns like a fire shut up in my bones! It burns with a heart so rich and so full of love for God and His people! This heart inside me that gushes out at every given opportunity. The heart of a Lover who is also a Warrior! Those who have been trained and are being trained to war! David was a man of war, but he was also a lover-worshipper-praiser with every fiber of his being! He danced and twirled before the Lord, wrote Psalms of praise, and unabashedly poured his heart out to the Lord. He always arrived at the conclusion that God is and will be the Deliverer, the Savior, the Healer, the Redeemer, the Almighty! He went into battle with a plan from the Lord – a strategy of victory. He never went into war just to see what would happen if they gave it their best effort! No! He sought the Lord for the strategy of the heart of his God and then from that position – he led the troops into battle with a confident expectation of VICTORY!
There was one time that he decided not to go to war – even though he was supposed to, for it was the time that Kings went to war! David decided not to go, therefore this also means he did not seek God for His strategy or victory plan! Instead, he stayed home, resting and enjoying, and in the process, he fixed his eyes on that which belonged to another man! He took the easy route when it was TIME FOR WAR! This led him into a lifetime of consequences because he chose to satisfy his flesh instead of answering the call of God that had been placed upon him!
We are living in a season that the sound of a WAR CRY is being heralded by Heaven! It is reverberating from the very throne of our God and from Jesus Himself! Even now, as I write this, flowing out of my inner being, my fingers begin to type in response, these words of the Lord:
“RISE UP MY BRIDE! RISE UP AND FOLLOW ME! WE SHALL MARCH INTO BATTLE FOR THERE IS MUCH TO BE DONE! WE ARE GOING TO TAKE BACK YOUR NATION AND ESTABLISH MY KINGDOM! DO NOT SHY AWAY FROM THE CALL I HAVE UPON YOUR LIVES! BE BRAVE, MIGHTY ONES, AND I WILL EQUIP YOU FOR THE VICTORY! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR I AM WITH YOU!
I AM issuing the call to FOLLOW ME! Follow me as a band of mighty, mature sons and daughters are arising to answer the call. The world has changed and so, you too, must be willing to change. Come out of your easy ways of living and let me make you into mighty, victorious ones that will TAKE BACK what belongs to us! There is no more time for passivity or simply enjoying your rituals and traditions. It is time to get to know me in new ways so that you are ready to go with me throughout the earth to accomplish what I have in mind in this hour. ARISE MY LOVE AND FOLLOW ME! I’m calling you to get out of your seat of comfort and DARE to discover who I AM and WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU! It will not automatically happen as you have supposed, but you must ARISE AND FOLLOW ME INTO NEW PLACES OF FAITH! I will show you Myself and my ways that will break the strongholds of religion over your minds. You will discover that in a flash you will be set free of the bonds that have held you captive for so long. These areas of insecurities and doubt that the enemy has used to keep you from moving forward.
This is the time for training, but the training will now be ON THE MOVE! No longer sitting, learning, practicing, and waiting. RISE UP, RISE UP, RISE UP! FOLLOW ME AND YOU WILL SEE! You will begin to discover that faith is an ACTION WORD! It is a place of discipleship, instead of a place for classrooms. Let’s go! Time is ticking! I have much to teach you, much to show you, much to reveal to you so GET UP! GET UP NOW AND LET’S GET GOING! I am releasing my warriors into the battles for which they are already trained and as they go they will lead others until they themselves are ready to lead a charge of their own. I am releasing battle strategies that ALWAYS PRODUCE VICTORY! I’m calling out to YOU! All you have to do is hear my voice, and respond. YES, LORD, I WILL GO! I WILL FOLLOW YOU INTO THE BATTLE!
Let me reveal Myself to you because as you get to know ME – you will find that shackles fall off, insecurities are vanquished, hurts are healed, and deeply intimate places are found in Me.
This is the place from which you are prepared for battle. You will see that “It is not by might, nor by power, but by MY SPIRIT, says the LORD” is more than scripture or words on paper! It is a battle cry from the heart of the ONE WHO LOVES YOU! It is the place from which your life of victory arises and you become MORE THAN A CONQUEROR THROUGH CHRIST JESUS, YOUR LORD”! (Zechariah 4:6, Romans 8:37)
Next, I keep hearing these words “in the spirit – the inside place where He speaks”, along with the clapping of hands … “GET UP, GET UP, GET UP! LET’S GET GOING FOR THERE IS MUCH TO DO”! Followed by the words to the song … “My eyes have seen the Glory of the Coming of the Lord” being sung as a victorious battle cry! HIS TRUTH IS MARCHING ON!
Hallelujah, my brothers and sisters! We are being called to ARISE as our finest hours are at hand! All we must do is respond and FOLLOW HIM! Lay aside our religious ways, thoughts, habits, traditions, and things that hold us back. Then, He will teach us His ways, and LEAD US INTO VICTORY!
