There is a prayer that will not only disable the enemy but bring God’s glory. Though we should continue to plead the blood of Jesus over situations, it is the Fear of the Lord that will ultimately change things. In a dream last night, the Lord gave instructions as to how this works. This has to do with taking the land and disempowering the principalities that are going after this next generation.
I was with other families on a large field. We were watching a woman giving instructions to our children who were gathered on one side of a plot of ground that we had prepared. She was telling the children that they were going to receive cuts, bruises, and wounds to their skin. She said it as if it was normal and simply part of the routine.
I could tell some of the other adults that were gathered with me were not comfortable with this and began to murmur and complain. I, myself, felt a righteous anger rising up within me and knew something had to be done to shut down this demonic initiative. I could hear people beginning to speak their prayers out loud, taking authority over this woman. As the prayers began to rise up, I heard myself specifically speak the Fear of the Lord upon this woman and, to my shock, she immediately collapsed to the ground, unconscious. I knew it was this prayer that had disabled her.
Then I looked at the children who had been gathered opposite this woman and, they too were lying on the ground. But, instead of coming under holy judgment like the woman, they were receiving an impartation from heaven. You could tell by the look on their faces that they were encountering the power of God’s glory and Presence. I laughed as I saw this and remarked to the others as to the power of this simple prayer that not only brought judgment to the enemy, but promise to His children.
What a powerful demonstration of the Fear of the Lord! When I asked the Lord about this, He said that the power of this prayer is not in the words themselves, but in the posture of the one who prays it. You cannot effectively pray the Fear of the Lord unless you, yourself, are operating in it. The distinguishing mark of this reality is obedience. Principalities and Powers recognize the difference between prayers that are words versus those that are lived. The true Fear of the Lord brings radical obedience when one encounters His holiness, His righteousness, and His glory. It becomes a life-force and when one prays from this posture, the enemy cannot stand and cannot take any more ground (Joshua 4:24 ESV).
For those who oppose the Lord, the Fear of the Lord will bring judgment, but for those who obey the Lord, it will produce an encounter of His glory. This same prayer produces both.
The dream continued.
It was then that I saw we had been erecting a tent on the grounds. Stakes had been placed around a perimeter and we had been preparing this place for habitation. It was like the old revival tents and we were working together to secure the stakes as well as enlarge our borders. We could even see where previous stakes had been placed and, in some cases, a rock foundation had also been placed at one time and we needed to position our stakes accordingly for the strongest hold.
Not only was this perimeter being enlarged, but there were walls being erected. I saw men lifting heavy walls and positioning them. As they passed by me I saw they needed help so I lifted the corner to carry some of the weight. I realized that many people were engaged in this process of securing the grounds and everyone was doing their part. It was strategic, coordinated, and was soon becoming a fortress with great strength.
“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.” (Isaiah 54:2-3 NIV)
I believe this dream illustration is another confirmation of what it means to coordinate our prayers with those of past generations in order to strengthen our foundations and secure our inheritance (Hebrews 11:40). Not only have past prayers taken some ground, but solid foundations have already been established that need to be rediscovered. The walls represent the prayers of the saints. Just as we are securing our borders, so we should continue to build a wall of prayer around our families, communities, and nation. We each need to carry our weight in this. It is this power of agreement and unity that will stand strong against those who oppose the Lord and try to darken the minds of future generations.
Through this dream, I believe the Lord is showing what is currently happening, as well as reminding us of our greater purpose. To see our land and nation restored, it will require several things: 1) Believers walking in the Fear of the Lord demonstrated through radical obedience. 2) Recognizing past prayer initiatives and building on them through mutual cooperation. 3) Uniting in a wall of prayer that will limit access to the enemy and secure the promises of God.
It always starts personal. If we are truly walking and living in the Fear of the Lord we should expect the enemy to be disabled and the glory of God to fall. Until that happens, God give us the grace to persevere.
This is a very important word.
In faith Abraham, when he was called to depart for the land which he was to receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing where he was going. In faith he became a temporary resident in the land which was promised him as in a strange country, and he lived in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
The fear of the Lord is the highest order of the seven-fold spirit. It’s color is purple, meaning royalty. The power is in obedience, not because we have to, but because we are willing, knowing the outcome if we do not follow. Those who possess the fear of the Lord know it is this real. We work in obedience and coordination because to do otherwise would be foolish. We have seen the light and want to be part of the one true way.
OBEY and PRAY. Those are the words I constantly use to remind myself of what we Christians must do to bring the next generation, and the generation after it, and all subsequent generations into the sovereign, saving mercies of Almighty God. It is most troubling to see these children and their children sliding into the cesspool of sin and degradation as if it were a normal thing! These dear ones are beloved of God, and yet many of us stand idly by watching them slip into the miry pit! It is as if we have been stricken by the sin of apathy. Father, shake us, wake us, reset our moral standards and compasses to align perfectly with Yours so that we can OBEY You and PRAY to You for these dear souls! Help us, strengthen us to reach out our hands of help to them to keep them from slipping into eternal damnation! Thank You, Father!
Thank you…James 4:7
Christ the Cornerstone, Who was obedient unto death.
Much of the topic centred from this domain stems from an aspect of the design and function of the sons of God.
Sons enjoy a level of intimacy where God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit can and will express his manifold wisdom to them.
This expression is not for them alone as seen in Romans 8.
“For the earnest expectation of all mankind waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.”
His earnest expression of himself to his sons enables God to empower them to do kingdom centric work.
As they carry out building his kingdom on earth he is also simultaneously preparing them their place in his eternal kingdom.
One of the kingdom of God’s biggest physical and spiritual lurch forward on earth is found in Revelation 10. This is when a little book is introduced to his sons.
If there can be one thing at the top of the body of Christ today in these times it is to phase out and away from all forms of slavery to Sonship.
“all mankind waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.”
