Prophetic Word, followed by a Dream about the Spiritual Battle:
“You have been unable to take out the enemy in some quarters because of his boldness & strategy. His ways of cunning have stubbornly gripped on so he has not lost his hold. The enemy has not lost his grip where he has been determined.
Fight him! Hold your stance & refuse to give in, & command him to go! So be bold & persist & refuse defeat! Your battle is against principalities & powers of darkness. They try to lull the Body of Christ into sleep & therefore into disarray, so remain alert!
Cheat death & dissolve the aspirations of the enemy in your midst. Keep watch! Do not form a truce! Do not allow a deadlock, but carry out justice & fight in My Name!
Treachery is at the heart of defeat. Exclusivity is where the occult often takes root. Division is always centred in pride & often in the feeling of being obsolete & unworthy of love!
Press in hard!! Get back up! Release My Angels to stand with you & to turn the tide on the enemy’s plans. Do not forfeit what you have been given through unbelief.
Walk in wholeness. Walk in My abundance.
Many have complied with the traditions of man, & have sought for little more. Do not accept the counterfeit!
Do not shoot yourself in the foot with thoughts of defeat.
My people need to contend & not give up in defence & attack. Seek Me for strategy at all times whilst standing your ground. Many have been trying to do their best under great opposition, but the enemy must flee first, (for you) to walk in freedom. He must be resisted!
Boldness is part of the helmet of salvation… knowing where you stand… knowing your rights as My child. Keep the helmet on tightly & let it not be removed by allowing past ways & understanding to stand in your way.
Compromise to keep the peace has been a long-standing stronghold in the minds of many of My people…. refuse this truce completely!
Take up arms & keep strong! Stay resolute & fire My Bullets of truth upon the enemy so he cannot stand.
Your vision must be clear. Seek for revelation & do not shut down!
Satan steals destinies & must be stopped! He steals from the stores of My Treasure House in your midst when you do not drive him out. Do not comply to his requests!
When your body gives in do not accept it. Refuse its submission, & declare My Lordship & your legal & royal position… calling on My troops!
Get passionate about who you are! Refuse defeat!
Do not be waylaid & set off course due to arbitrary thoughts & means.
Learn from ‘French Bastille’ & how it was taken down!
The Suffragettes clung to their rights & with determination they would not be moved. They won as a mighty fortress. Walk as they walked… with fortitude!
The enemy will count your sins against you to count you out, but these are illegitimate claims against the child of God who must remain resolute. He will belittle you & put doubt in your mind about who you are as though your grounds are weak. He seeks to resist you at every turn & counteract your claims of righteousness & redemption.
Hear My Call to Arms! Release the banner of righteousness! You have submitted to decay & loss too long!
Accept nothing less than God’s best & ways. Chase out the Jebusites who have become familiar.
Stand & declare My works on your behalf! Regain your sense of who you are & do not accept dilution. Drown the voice of satan out with the truth. Seek Me & I will lead you.
Many have lost the art of defence & attack. Wield My sword & triumph! Give volumes of praise & adoration to your King.
Refuse defeat! Counteract all darkness with My truth & light. Unpack your bags & remain. (meaning: Abide in God, standing your ground & do not run or give in). Walk in My rest & My substitution for death.
Practice your stance over the enemy for My promises. Thank Me!” END
In the dream I was in a dark room that I lived in with other Christians. The room represented the limitations & lack of freedom & light that we lived in. We had lived in that dark room so long that we were unaware that it was dark. It was not pitch black & we could see where we were in the room, but it was still dark…. somewhat like the darkness of dusk immediately before total nightfall…. the type of darkness that a person’s eyes have to adjust to so as to just manage to get around & not bump into everything.
This room was one that we had lived in without leaving it or even considering the need to do so! This was our place of abode & we had accepted the very limited light we had there as being normal light, for we had all known total darkness before being Christians & so comparably this seemed really good!
Whilst going about my normal day in that room the Lord gave me an impacting revelation whereby I suddenly knew we were still in a lot of darkness & that we were not supposed to be. I also immediately had revelation that there was a door out of that room which I had never seen though it had always been there & I immediately knew where it was & that I was to leave that room through it. I suddenly knew that the wall near me in the room actually had a door in it, & it was right in front of where I was standing.
I also had immediate revelation that this door was locked but that it must open for me as I turned the door handle because I was a child of God & nothing had the right to remain locked against me because the Blood of Jesus was shed for me! There was simply no doubt in my heart & mind & I was resolute because of this revelation!
Immediately that I turned the door handle the door unlocked & opened, & the light that was outside was a breathtakingly pure, perfect & powerful light that would have been blinding to natural eyes. This light I looked into was in an unlimited space where there were no restrictions or walls. I could see that this powerful light was life & power & abundance.
I immediately went to step out of the room into the light, but as one foot touched the ground outside & my body leaned forward to move out of the room fully, suddenly 2 huge demons stepped in front of me to stop me. They had been leaning against the wall guarding the door from the outside to ensure no-one left the darkened room, with one standing either side of the doorway. They were huge & incredibly strong & muscular, with each of their extremely muscular arms being thicker than my entire body.
They both gripped me to throw me back into the room, but the same holy defiance was burning within me, knowing they had no right to do this & that I had more authority than them because of Christ in me, so I simply flicked my finger against their arms & they were thrown back about 20 metres (approx 20 yards) & went crashing to the ground! This did not surprise me at all, but what did surprise me was that they both immediately jumped back up & came charging back at me again to throw me back into the room.
Again I flicked each one just with my finger & again they were thrown back as though they had been knocked backwards by a train or a huge cannon, but this did not stop them & this same scenario continued again & again & again with no let up, & this continued for a ridiculously very long time. It made no sense to me! I kept flicking these huge powerful demons away with just one little finger, so it was clear that I was the one carrying the far greater authority each & every time, but I couldnt stop their efforts for they did not weary.
In fact, this battle made up almost the entirety of the dream which went for a very long time. It went on for so long that though I did not tire physically in any way because I was not fighting with any of my own strength, I was becoming incredibly bored & was just wanting them to stop so I could move on. I was not stressed at all, for I was moving in God’s strength but I really had no understanding of why they wouldn’t stop coming at me. I was starting to feel like there was a deadlock.
I’d been given a total revelation of who I was in Christ & who He was in me & how nothing had the right or authority to stand against Christ in me & so I’d expected the door to unlock & it had done exactly that, & when the demons gripped me I simply flicked them off like small bugs & expected just as confidently that then I would move forward into the fullness of what God had for me, so I did not understand how they could keep getting back up to throw me back into the dark room. It did not make any sense to me at all for I knew they had no authority to do so, yet they continued to do this & they refused to relent.
Though I had no intention of giving in to them I became frustrated with this ongoing battle, & as I wondered at it I clearly heard the Lord say:
“They will not give in until they know for sure that you will not give in!”
I was then woken by the Lord & gained increasing revelation of how the demons knew that though some might stand their ground & fight strongly for a while many would eventually give in out of frustration, confusion & weariness, so the demons persist until they are sure that we wont give in, & only then will they give up & leave & go & harrass someone else who will give in. END
So when I was woken by the Lord to hear this Prophetic Word (above) a few years ago, the Lord reminded me of this Dream He had given me many years previous to that.
The sad thing is that though I’d received this Dream many many years ago when the Lord was originally teaching me about Spiritual Warfare there was a massive amount of spiritual abuse, persecution & demonic assaults that came at me from every direction in my life for many years, & I had no-one who understood spiritual warfare or what was coming against me who would stand with me, & after years of intense oppression satan finally managed to convince me that I must have been arrogant & deceived to believe in spiritual warfare unlike those around about me who would have nothing to do with it. The assaults against me were unceasing & so intense for so long that I was finally convinced that I must have been proud & arrogant to think that the many Christians around me could be wrong & that God had really been teaching me about spiritual warfare, so for a number of years I threw away what the Lord had taught me about Spiritual warfare & I even blocked out of my mind all the dreams, supernatural experiences & powerful things I had seen come to pass that the Lord had given me to teach me about spiritual warfare, (as impossible as that would seem), but I have learned much about the ways in which the enemy works from having been through this.
I had never had any teaching from people on Spiritual Warfare & had never even heard the term “spiritual warfare”, & all I knew was that as I spent time with God daily I would see visions about many things & would feel God’s heart of passion & love & heartache & anger etc & would find myself making prophetic declarations & standing strong in defiance against darkness & weeping in travail etc, but I had no terminology for it, but the enemy didn’t like it & was determined to stop it, & after years of extreme & constant onslaughts he eventually succeeded for a time, but he didnt know God would use this to bring me back stronger & more aware & prepared.
It was not until 4 years ago that the Lord began waking me & dictating these Prophetic Words to me to write down that He opened my heart & mind to the reality of the need to stand & fight in this very real spiritual battle aimed at us. The Lord wanted to ensure that if no-one else was around to help encourage me & help heal my heart & teach me about spiritual warfare, then yet again He Himself would personally come & do so & would this time clearly dictate exact clear messages word-for-word for me that I could also share with His Body, for many of us have been plundered in many ways & been stunted spiritually.
In all honesty it took me a while to be able to accept what the Lord was telling me, for I’d suffered so severely previously after He’d originally begun teaching me about spiritual warfare that I’d shut down & doubted I could really trust that I was hearing from the Lord. The fear, confusion & shame & doubt had become a severe & crippling stronghold because I’d been convinced I was deceived, so in 2009 the Lord began waking me constantly & speaking to me with words & phrasing & revelation that could never have come from me, & with deep encouragement to my heart. Though the Lord first woke me with a Prophetic Word that was about Spiritual Warfare on only the 4th time of approx 200 times in 30months, it took 16 months before I could aggressively fight with boldness because the stronghold of fear had rooted passivity deeply into me & it took persistence to begin to overcome that spirit of passivity.
. God knew I was desperate enough that He could get me to dare to stand & fight again, for Satan had done a lot of damage in my family & around about me because we’d become unarmed & vulnerable for many years, & my faith was quite damaged. The enemy had tried to totally destroy us many ways many times wanting us to never be able to get back up. My health had collapsed so badly that I’ve had very acute & chronic illnesses & pain for many years & my husband nearly died many many times, & in our families we have experienced numerous deaths from horrendous diseases also, as well as many other extreme ongoing traumas all happening at once that never let up over the years. We were exhausted & broken just like so many of God’s people are, but we have moved forward & have seen some wonderful changes & even some amazing miracles in some areas as we have persisted in obeying these teachings from the Lord, but we still have quite a way to go so we can rise up & live again in the fullness of the great victory Jesus has won for us!
God gave me these Prophetic Words (& dreams & visions) so we could all be encouraged & grow in understanding, confidence & hope!
You are not alone, for there are many of us who have suffered greatly & are having to stand strong to see our victory manifest in many areas of our lives, but if you are becoming weary remember that many of us in the Body of Christ are being trained through these battles, & I encourage you to read one of my favourite Prophetic Words that always encourages me titled: “THESE BATTLES ARE YOUR PREPARATION! I WILL SEND RAIN!” (click here to read)
