The Battle

No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is  their vindication from Me declares the Lord.
Isaiah 54: 17

Here the writer is expressing God’s protection and compassion for His people Israel. There have been many types of weapons that have been made to hurt and destroy people and nations throughout history.

However today we are seeing a different kind of weapon, a deadly virus, which is destroying human life, regardless of culture, colour, age, stature and nation.
The virus attacking parts of the lungs, which distribute oxygen around the organs of the human body. It’s aim is to kill, yet Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and have it in abundance.” John 10:10

OUR SPIRITUAL ARMOUR

All believers today, living under the new covenant are equipped with spiritual weapons. “Finally be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the whole armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Therefore put on the whole armour of God, so that when the evil day comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand, stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests.

With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.  the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
Ephesians 6: 10-17

This is not the time for the church to be indifferent or passive, and be in the trenches. It is the time for it to be on the front line standing together shoulder to shoulder in the Spirit. Jesus has already won the victory at the cross, prophetically we just proclaim it until we see it come into fruition in the physical realm.

PROCLAMATIONS

When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God, will raise up a standard against him!
Isaiah 59:19

Do not fear then, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you. Deuteronomy 8:22

Behold I have given you authority to tread on serpents,  and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Luke 10:19

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The  weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every though to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5

May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double edged sword in their mouths and a double edged sword in their hands, to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their chains in fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron, to carry out the sentence of all the saints. Psalm 149:6-9

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

We praise you Lord for your love forgiveness and long suffering. Forgive, forget, restore we pray Lord in Your mercy.
In the authority of the Name of Jesus and through His blood, we bind this corona virus from the nations from the earth, and command it to go to the pit of hell where it belongs, and never to return.

Father we pray, for the power of Your Holy Spirit to flow from the four corners of the earth, to bring repentance, salvation, healing and restoration. Thank you Jesus, for  nothing is impossible with You.

And they conquered him by the blood of the Lamb, and buy the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Rev 12: 11

Behold, I am coming soon!  My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End.
Rev 22:12

COME LORD JESUS – COME !

The Three R’s – Repentance, Renewal, Revival

For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully commit to Him. “You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.” 2 Chronicles 16: 9

This chapter focus’s on Asa the King. He had a heart that was fully committed to the Lord all his life. However in his final years, he rejected God’s word given through Hannai the prophet, and became an oppressive ruler. He refused to seek God’s help in times of national crisis. He allowed his faith to be eroded by complacency. He was inflicted with a disease, which God had wanted to use as a spiritual wake up call for Asa back to trusting Him.

REPENTANCE

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from Your presence or take away Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will turn back to You. Save me from blood guilt, O God, the God who saves me, and I will sing of Your righteousness.
Psalm 51: 10-15.

Come let us return to the LORD, He has torn us to pieces but He will heal us; he has injured us but He will bind our wounds. After two days He will revive us: on the third day He will restore us, that we may live in His presence. Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surly as the sun rises, He will appear, He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.
Hosea 6: 1-3

RESTORATION

Because of the LORD’S great love we are not consumed, for His compassion’s never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness “The LORD is my portion: therefore I will wait for Him,” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
Lam 3:22-26

“Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the  way of My people.” For this is what the high and lofty One says – He who lives forever, whose Name is holy: I live in a high and holy place, but with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit. To revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite, I will not accuse forever nor will I always be angry, for then the spirit of man would grow faint before me – the breath of man that I have created. I was enraged by his sinful greed. I punished him, and hid my face in anger, yet he kept in his wilful way, but I will heal him,  I will guide him and restore comfort to him, creating peace on the lips of the mourners in Israel.
Peace, peace to those far and near, says the LORD, ” And I will heal them.”
Isa 57:14-19

REVIVAL

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation. For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him is before all things, and in Him things hold together. And He is the head of the body; the church; He is the begining and the firstborn among the dead, so that in everything He might have supremacy. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or things in heaven, by peace through His blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:15-20.

I will surely gather all you O Jacob; I will surly bring together the remnant of Israel, I will bring together the sheep in a pen, like a flock in it’s pasture: the place will throng with people. One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through the gate and go out. The King will pass through them, the LORD at their head.
Micah 2:12-13

All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all families of the Nations will bow down before Him, For dominions belong to the Lord and He rules over the Nations!
Psalm 22: 27 -28

As we declare these sciptures, let us continue to stand our ground, and keep standing, having girded ourselves with the armour of God.
JESUS HAS WON THE VICTORY!

Christ our Passover

Passover began at sundown Wed 8th April 2020. An eight day holiday that commemorates the departure of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, more than 3,000 years ago. Exodus 7-11, God inflicted ten plagues upon the Egyptians when Pharaoh refused to free the Israelites.

By day the Lord went ahead of them, in  a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day, nor the pillar  of fire by night left it’s place in front of people.
Exodus 13: 21-2

Are there similarities to today? The world is in lock down at present from a lethal, mystery virus, a plague. Interestingly, Passover coincides with Easter this year. From the eve of Passover a large pink moon is shining down nearer to earth than any other time, What is God saying?

    1. If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray  and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
      2 Chronicles 7:14

       

    2. Turn to Me and be saved, All you ends of earth! for I am God and there is no other.
      Isaiah 45:22

PROTECTION

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge, and my fortress; my God in whom I will trust. “I will say .”Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield a buckler.
Psalm 91:6

DECLARATION

But He was pierced for our transgression, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5

PROCLAMATIONS

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:15-16

Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him, endured the cross, scorning it’s  shame, and sat down at the right hand of God
Hebrews 12:2

And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they had pierced, and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a first born son.
Zechariah 12:10

For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in the flesh the law with it’s commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in Himself, one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body, to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which He put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to all those who were near.
For through Him we have both access to the Father by one Spirit. Amen!
Ephesians 2: 14-18

On this special day, many are participating in the breaking of bread, and taking the cup, the blood of the Passover lamb, aligning themselves with God’s people, and you are welcome to join with us today.

Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. Therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
1 Corinthians 5: 7-8

“The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace, “
Numbers 6:24-26

When the shadow of the LORD is in the camp it is the sound of victory! He is the Rock of our Salvation.
Amen & Amen!

The Clarion Call Has Sounded!

The Word of Lord came to me, Jeremiah, “What do you see Jeremiah “I see the branch of an almond tree I replied. The Lord said to me. “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see My Word is fulfilled.”
Jeremiah 1:11-12

The almond tree is one of the first that rises and wakes from its winter sleep in Israel, in January, by March it fruits to maturity. The tree represents God’s  prophetic utterances to Jeremiah of the forthcoming judgements coming to earth. The Hebrew translation (shoked) represents God’s hastening.

Matthew 24 and Revelation 6 forecast disease pandemics in the time before Jesus’s return.

God watches over His Word. The Hebrew word (shaqad) means to be alert.

As believers we are His instruments, covered in our spiritual armour and washed in His blood.
Standing in victory under the shadow of His wings, we proclaim His Word prophetically over the Nations.
A frightened world needs a fearless church!
