“Heavenly Keys Are
Being Given To The Sons On Earth”
February 20, 2019
The earth is groaning under the weight of sin, and the
peoples of the earth are groaning under the weight of sin. The Father is looking
for the Sons to awaken and to ask Him for the Keys to bring deliverance to the
captives. Heaven is open to His Sons, but not all will enter in to inquire of
the Lord for the welfare of the earth. It is time for governmental change. The
weight of sin, and the fruit of sin must be dealt with, for the sake of the
Keys of Authority:
Romans 8:23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have andenjoy the first fruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons).
Isaiah 22:22 And the (governmental) key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open.
EXP: I will put the key to the house of David [a sign of authority, indicating access to the king; Rev. 3:7] around his neck. If he opens a door, no one will be able to close it; if he closes a door, no one will be able to open it.
Revelations 3:7 “Write this to the ·angel [messenger; see 1:20] of the church in Philadelphia. “This is what the One who is holy and true, who holds the key of David [ the resurrected Jesus; holding the key of David signifies access to the king; Is. 22:22], says. When he opens a door, no one can close it. And when he closes it, no one can open it [ Jesus controls access to God].
Keys of Access:
There are also Keys of Access being given, which will open strategic governmental spiritual pathways, which will enable the believers to walk into higher realms and in the authority that the Father desires that they embody. New perspectives are being unfolded which will cause a shift in the church’s understanding of their authority and their higher functioning role in the heavens, to be able to affect the earth.
Every available heavenly and earthly resource waits for those who are maturing and who are seeking for God’s directives to be able to fully affect our generation. The Lord has plenty of supply for His People. The Sons are emerging upon the earth, and it is time to unlock this generation to bring a global realignment, and true direction which will also bring release to the earth itself.
Zechariah 3:7 Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access [to My presence] and places to walk among these who stand here.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the world and saw how degenerate, debased, and vicious it was, for all humanity had corrupted their way upon the earth and lost their true direction.
Isaiah 52:10 The Lord has made bare His holy arm before the eyes of all the nations [revealing Himself as the One by Whose direction the redemption of Israel from captivity is accomplished], and all the ends of the earth shall witness the salvation of our God.
Keys of Wisdom:
The Father is listening to the Sons who are asking for wisdom for their areas. Keys of Wisdom are being released from heaven now to directly affect the earth to bring it fully into Heaven’s purposes. This is a time to ask, and to receive, and to also respond in obedience to heaven’s directives that are being released now.
Luke 11:52 Woe to you, lawyers (experts in the Mosaic Law)! For you have taken away the key to knowledge; you did not go in yourselves, and you hindered and prevented those who were entering.
The Keys to the House of God are being entrusted to the Sons. Let the Sons arise with the keys of wisdom in their mouths and in their hands, and establish the governmental destiny of the people of nations of the earth.
Jeremiah 29:11 I say this because I know ·what [ the plans] I am planning for you,” says the Lord. “I have ·good plans for you [ plans for your peace/security], not plans ·to hurt you [ for your harm]. I will give you hope and a good future.
Keys of Destinies: Unlocking the destiny scroll of the nations:
Keys are now available to unlock nations, cities, and peoples. They are being given to those who have developed the mature character of the Son, and who resonate the heart of the Father. The Father wants to open up governmental realms for us, so that we can agree with heavens plans for the earth. It is time to access the higher courts and receive the scrolls, and to walk in the fullness of the Spirit to change this generation.
God has a scroll written for each person, and for every nation that is birthed into the earth. The enemy has corrupted, changed, and/or stolen many of those original scrolls. When a nation or people disobey and reject the Lord’s will for them, then the enemy steals their scroll and corrupts it, or replaces it with another.
The Fire of God is falling now to fully burn up the roots of the false to reveal and to establish the true destinies that He has ordained. Generations continue to sleep on in their ignorance, and the people perish under the weight and fruit of sin and rebellion. Nations have lost their direction, their identity, their hope and vision for the future. It is time to apprehend the scrolls that have been stolen and corrupted, so that Truth can realign the nations and give hope, freedom, and fresh vision to the peoples.
Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the world and saw how degenerate, debased, and vicious it was, for all humanity had corrupted their way upon the earth and lost their true direction. AMP
Keys bring divine release, justice, and vindication to the people of the earth.
The Glory is exposing every root of darkness for what it truly is, so that the demonic strongholds can be destroyed. The earth is responding to the rising of the true Sons. It’s time to use the revelatory keys to access the governmental gates, to also unlock the people of the earth so they can turn to the Lord again, and obtain the rightful inheritance that is theirs.
Daniel 10:10 So I took the small scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. In my mouth it tasted sweet as honey, but after I ate it, it was ·sour [bitter] in my stomach. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings [ he must share the word he just received].” EXP
Psalms 7:6 Arise, O Lord, in Your anger; lift up Yourself against the rage of my enemies; and awake [and stir up] for me the justice and vindication [that] You have commanded. 7 Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered about You, and return on high over them. AMP
EXP: Gather the ·nations [assembly/congregations of the peoples] around you and ·rule [or take a seat over; return] them from ·above [on high].
“The 3 Stages of
Transition and Ascension Vision”
January 8, 2015
The Lord gave me a vision that
is parabolic in its meaning for us all. It speaks of the challenges and the
transitions which the Lord will allow to come over the church in the next three
years (2015-2017), and it also speaks of the release of the wisdom of the deeper
purposes the Lord has for us within those necessary changes, which is intended
to force us all higher so that we can fulfill our mandates for the Harvest.
I saw a silver plane flying high in the sky, and it was encountering weather problems as the fog was hindering it’s view in the air. The pilots were forced to use their navigational instruments for their view was limited through the window. I saw that they were getting really close to a large mountain just ahead and they needed to gain more altitude to miss its peaks. At the last minute one of the pilots saw the mountain as the fog broke for a minute, and they panicked and pulled hard on their steering gears, and the plane started climbing erratically in a hard pull.
The plane just clipped the tip of the mountain with its underbelly, and the mountain tore a long gash under its body as it tried to go over the top. As this happened, the plane’s skin was literally unzipped and peeled off by the scraping, but I saw that the plane still did manage to make it over the mountain without crashing, but it had lost its outer skin and some mechanical capabilities in the process.
I saw that as the skin was stripped off by the impact, a red outer skin supernaturally came around the plane. The plane was still able to fly, but it had been physically changed by the encounter with the mountain. The pilots and the passengers were shaken up, but the pilots were more cautious now in their flight. The fog was now underneath them, and they decided to continue on with their flight. They flew on nervously, wondering where the new red skin had come from. They wondered if they should radio this in or not.
I then saw another mountain off in the distance, and I wondered if the pilots would see this one ahead of time. I could see that the 2 pilots were discussing the previous impact, and were checking out all of their other systems one at a time, and were also pre-occupied with also keeping the staff and passengers assured. One of the pilots finally looked up and he saw the next mountain, and signaled to the other pilot to start climbing. The other pilot was amazed at the reality of another mountain, since this was not an area for multiple mountains.
He began to pull up on his levers, but the plane hesitated and the pilot frantically pulled even harder, and finally after some resistance, the plane started to climb. The previous climb and accident had caused some issues in the mechanical system they failed to notice. The other pilot started to tell the staff and passengers to buckle up and stay seated again. The plane groaned loudly under the hard, steep climb into the higher altitudes, and it also clipped the top of the mountain peak, and again just like before, it’s under belly was sliced into.
The plane violently shuddered and the skin of the plane was being ripped open even deeper and torn off by the higher winds. Eventually the pilots got the plane stable as it again barely cleared the mountain without crashing, but there was obvious changes to the plane after this impact that caused them to be alarmed. Wind was now blowing loudly through the cabin, and this caused things to be tossed around and luggage was even tossed within the plane, much to the passengers and attendant’s dismay. The pilots were about to radio for help when an amazing thing happened.
I saw new skin grow over the plane again, and this time it was a radiant translucent color, much like a skin of milky light, that also shimmered. The pilots were now beyond shocked, and the plane now stabilized and the wind stopped blowing within the cabins. The mess that was made inside the cabins was now gone, and the passengers were all dressed and nicely kempt too, and were amazed. Everything was swept clean inside, as if nothing had ever happened. The passengers looked out the windows to see what had happened. The pilots did not know what to do next, but decided to keep going to their destination since the plane was still flying and everything was okay.
I watched as they flew for onwards awhile, then I saw a magnificent mountain just ahead of them. It towered at an even higher altitude than they were currently on. This mountain was also made of the same translucent milky material as the plane was, and it radiated light from somewhere within the mountain. It was now getting dark, for they had been flying for a long time. So the pilots headed for the mountain, climbing steadily as they went easily, because it lit up the sky.
When they got nearer to the mountain, they pulled on their instruments again, intending to go over the top of this one too, but their instruments didn’t work now. There was no response at all. They looked at each other in amazement and wondered what to do now. They could not steer away, and they could not go over the mountain. They then realized that they were all on a course that could not be changed. I wondered what would happen to them as I watched. I then saw the plane fly right into the mountain and disappeared. The plane and the mountain had now become one.
*** The interpretation is obvious.
There are challenges and changes coming to the Body of Christ (the plane) over the next three years, 2015 to 2017, which will force us all to climb higher in the Spirit, but which will also strip away all religious facades, masks, weaknesses and sins. There will be a period of the removing of all carnal/soulish wisdom and worldly learning that we have been influenced by, and the removing of any baggage and mistaken ideals which hold us down to the lower levels. The Father is going to strip away all than hinders us, all that we rely upon that impedes us from going higher. He will also remove all that is not currently needed for where we are going.
Man does not build the Mountain of the Lord, but it is built by God, and it functions upon the Eternal Kingdom principles of the Father. There are new lessons, which we will have to learn as we rise in each new level. This course change ahead of us will restructure the church from the way she currently operates. It will also bring the newly birthed Habitation into full alignment, and will mature her into what she is truly to become in our generation.
It is time to hold things loosely, and to ask the Father for Hs council. If we heed the council that comes to us from behind the veil, we can navigate these coming years easily and without a lot of impact to ourselves personally. If we ask Him to change us now, we will soar through the transition phases into higher realms unaffected. The transformation process will shake many, so we must help those around us walk out the changes. It is time to build, and to move in and with His Kingdom, on the earth. It is elevation time!
Ezekiel 17:22 Thus says the Lord God: I Myself will take a twig from the lofty top of the cedar and will set it out; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and will plant it upon a mountain high and exalted.23 On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and be a noble cedar, and under it shall dwell all birds of every feather; in the shade of its branches they shall nestle and find rest.
Micah 4:1 But in the latter days it shall come to pass that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains; and it shall be exalted above the hills, and peoples shall flow to it. 2 And many nations shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways, and we may walk in His paths. For the law shall go forth out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3 And He shall judge between many peoples and shall decide for strong nations afar off, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
"The Bridal Garments
Room Experience "
January 6, 2015
In the vision experience, I am walking in the
Heavenly City. I see that there is activity everywhere and an atmosphere of awe
of God permeates everything. I am walking on the familiar golden cobblestones of
light, and each cobblestone is shining transparently. I then find myself turning
down a very narrow street, and the walls of the buildings on this street all
vibrate with life. The various vibrations from the whole street sound to me like
a song being composed. Every building is filled with light, and each is
constructed unique to its purpose.
As I am walking, I see an archway ahead of me that has a door under it. The beauty of the roses in the archway captivates my eyes. Each stone in the archway is filled with light, and each one has a rose carved into it that shines with a unique brilliance. I curiously reached out to the door under the archway to inspect what might be on the other side, and as I do the door suddenly opens before me. I walk into a foyer-like room, and in front of me is another archway that leads into another area. I then walk through the second archway, and the light within is so bright that I cannot see. I stood there for a moment till my eyes adjusted to the glory in that room. When I could see, I was astounded by the size of the room, as it went very far in each direction.
The room was filled with rows and rows of tables. At every table were many angels working. I looked closer, and could see that they were all making garments. There was an air of excitement in the room as the angels all worked on the garments, and it felt like the whole city itself was vibrating in agreement with them. The angels were working on garments, and I knew that each garment was unique. The angels were all in various stages of assembly, and the care they took and the respect for their task was very touching to me. I looked, and I saw one angel hold up in my view what looked to me to be a needle of light, and it was threaded by strands of light that looked like minute tubes, and they sewed the needle through the fabric till it became a completed garment.
An angel stood at the ends of each of the tables, one angel on each side. When a garment was completed, it was given to the angels standing at either end, which then took the completed garment and walked past the rows of tables until they reached the last row. The angel then stopped and gave the garments to the waiting angels that were sitting there. I wondered to myself what the last row of tables was doing. Just then, a voice said to me, “Come and see.” I turned to see who spoke and it was the angel named Wisdom. I stood there looking at her and understood that it is wisdom that gives us understanding. Wisdom smiled, and said again to me, “Come.” I followed wisdom past each row of tables until we got to the last row, and then we stopped.
I saw that the last rows of tables were assigned to do something else than assembling garments. The angels stood waiting with excitement until the other angels brought them the garments. On their tables were piles of various jewels, and I recognized some of the jewels. I saw pearls of all hues and various levels of luminescence. I saw diamonds of all shapes and sizes that flashed with internal fire, and there were other heavenly stones that I did not recognize. The angels discussed where to place the stones amongst themselves. Each garment was different, and the placement of the stones was determined by its future owners purpose. The angels who handled the garments were in awe and they held them tenderly. I suddenly realized that these were wedding dresses being assembled.
“You are correct”, Wisdom said. “They are making wedding dresses for the bride. The bride is waking up in your days, and she is about to make herself ready.” Wisdom then took me by the hand and said, “You each are called to awaken many. You must help them to get themselves ready. The Father is coming to change them, and to fully inhabit them, for they shall fully overcome the world, and they shall be found worthy to stand before men and to reveal the knowledge of Him. It is time for the harvest to accelerate, and it is time for you each to arise and mobilize for the hour is late. The Bridegroom is coming fully into your Gates. Rise up now and shine, for your Light has come, and the Glory of the Lord shall rise upon you and also break outwards from you as a brilliant garment of Glory, such as you see also being made here. Get ready- Get ready- Get ready! The bride must fully awaken and get herself ready!”
When the vision ended, I looked up scriptures on the heavenly wedding garments being prepared, and the theme of the bride awakening and getting herself ready:
Matthew 25:1 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent). 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them; 4 But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him! 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. 9 But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves. 10 But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us! 12 But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you]. 13 Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.
Is 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I [Isaiah] not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest until her imputed righteousness and vindication go forth as brightness, and her salvation radiates as does a burning torch. 2 And the nations shall see your righteousness and vindication [your rightness and justice—not your own, but His ascribed to you], and all kings shall behold your salvation and glory; and you shall be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord shall name. 3 You shall also be [so beautiful and prosperous as to be thought of as] a crown of glory and honor in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God. 4 You [Judah] shall no more be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land be called Desolate any more. But you shall be called Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land be called Beulah [married]; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married [owned and protected by the Lord].
Is 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].
Song of Songs 8:11 Solomon had a vineyard at Baal-hamon; he let out the vineyard to keepers; everyone was to bring him a thousand pieces of silver for its fruit. 12 You, O Solomon, can have your thousand [pieces of silver], and those who tend the fruit of it two hundred; but my vineyard, which is mine [with all its radiant joy], is before me! 13 O you who dwell in the gardens, your companions have been listening to your voice—now cause me to hear it. 14 [Joyfully the radiant bride turned to him, the one altogether lovely, the chief among ten thousand to her soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin her life of sweet companionship with him, she answered] Make haste, my beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart [and take me to our waiting home] upon the mountains of spices.
Revelations 19:6 After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns! 7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself. 8 She has been permitted to dress in fine (radiant) linen, dazzling and white—for the fine linen is (signifies, represents) the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people). 9 Then [the angel] said to me, Write this down: Blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me [further], These are the true words (the genuine and exact declarations) of God.
Revelations 21:1 Then I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband; 3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God. 4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away. 5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine). 6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life. 7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
Revelations 22:5 And there shall be no more night; they have no need for lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord God will illuminate them and be their light, and they shall reign [as kings] forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities). 6 And he [of the seven angels further] said to me, These statements are reliable (worthy of confidence) and genuine (true). And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His messenger (angel) to make known and exhibit to His servants what must soon come to pass.
“I Am Going To Bend Your Bow!” – 01-02-15
Today the Lord spoke to my
heart, and said, “I am going to bend your bow!” I thought to myself, “bend my
bow?” I went to my computer and looked up several scriptures regarding bending
bows and the use of bows. The Lord loves to speak in pictures and parables to
illustrate truths to us, to help us understand the journey ahead of us.
2 Samuel 22 and Psalms 18 reveal powerful illustrations of the ways in which God will train us for war and for victory. For the sake of time, I will post the shorter version below: But study the whole chapters for they reveal much for the coming years ahead of us. We have much to recover, to redeem, and to apprehend for the Kingdom.
2 Samuel 22:29 For You, O Lord, are my Lamp; the Lord lightens my darkness.30 For by You I run through a troop; by my God I leap over a wall. 31 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried. He is a Shield to all those who trust and take refuge in Him. 32 For who is God but the Lord? And who is a Rock except our God? 33 God is my strong Fortress; He guides the blameless in His way and sets him free. 34 He makes my feet like the hinds’ [firm and able]; He sets me secure and confident upon the heights. 35 He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 36 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; and Your condescension and gentleness have made me great. 37 You have enlarged my steps under me, so that my feet have not slipped. 38 I have pursued my enemies and destroyed them; and I did not turn back until they were consumed.
Psalms 18:33 He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.
We personally grow and spiritually advance the most under times of extreme testing and intense trials. Our very thoughts/words will determine whether we fail or succeed in the allotted time that we are given for the assignment. These are opportunities for us to achieve tremendous victories in the earth and in the realm of the Spirit.
The Bow: the tongue.
The Arrows: the words that are spoken forth. (Good or bad)
Jeremiah 9:3 And they bend their tongue, [which is] their bow for the lies [they shoot]. And not according to faithfulness do they rule and become strong in the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know and understand and acknowledge Me, says the Lord.
The revelatory word is to be within our minds, our hearts, and in our mouths at all times. The Lord will inspire us to speak as His very oracles, to declare forth His arrows to pierce the enemy and to destroy his works.
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise up for them a prophet (Prophet) from among their brethren like you, and will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
Deuteronomy 30:14 But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart, so that you can do it.
Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
As we speak under the authority of the Lord, our bow (tongue) releases the arrows (the words) outward into the atmosphere around us to accomplish the Lord’s purposes. Our obedience is very important to the Lord.
Zechariah 9:1 The burden or oracle (the thing to be lifted up) of the word of the Lord is against the land of Hadrach [in Syria], and Damascus shall be its resting place, for the Lord has an eye upon mankind as upon all the tribes of Israel,2 And Hamath also, which borders on [Damascus], Tyre with Sidon, though they are very wise. 3 And Tyre has built herself a stronghold [on an island a half mile from the shore, which seems impregnable], and heaped up silver like dust and fine gold like the mire of the streets. 4 Behold, the Lord will cast her out anddispossess her; He will smite her power in the sea and into it and [Tyre] shall be devoured by fire. 5 [The strong cities of Philistia] shall see it and fear; Ashkelon, Gaza also, and be sorely pained, and Ekron, for her confidence and expectation shall be put to shame, and a king [monarchial government] shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. 6 And a mongrel people shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will put an end to the pride of the Philistines. 7 And I will take out of [the Philistines’] mouths and from between their teeth the abominable idolatrous sacrifices eaten with the blood. And they too shall remain and be a remnant for our God, and they shall be like chieftains (the head over a thousand) in Judah, and Ekron shall be like one of the Jebusites [who at last were merged and had lost their identity in Israel]. 8 Then I will encamp about My house as a guard or a garrison so that none shall march back and forth, and no oppressor or demanding collector shall again overrun them, for now My eyes are upon them. 9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O Daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you; He is [uncompromisingly] just and having salvation [triumphant and victorious], patient, meek, lowly, and riding on a donkey, upon a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 And I will cut off andexterminate the war chariot from Ephraim and the [war] horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off; and He shall speak the word and peace shall come to the nations, and His dominion shall be from the [Mediterranean] Sea to [any other] sea, and from the River [Euphrates] to the ends of the earth! 11 As for you also, because of and for the sake of the [covenant of the Lord with His people, which was sealed with sprinkled] covenant blood, I have released andsent forth your imprisoned people out of the waterless pit. 12 Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you. 13 For I have bent Judah for Myself as My bow, filled the bow with Ephraim as My arrow, and will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and will make you [Israel] as the sword of a mighty man. 14 And the Lord shall be seen over them and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning, and the Lord God will blow the trumpet and will go forth in the windstorms of the south. 15 The Lord of hosts shall defend and protect them; and they shall devour and they shall tread on [their fallen enemies] as on slingstones [that have missed their aim], and they shall drink [of victory] and be noisy and turbulent as from wine and become full like bowls [used to catch the sacrificial blood], like the corners of the [sacrificial] altar. 16 And the Lord their God will save them on that day as the flock of His people, for they shall be as the [precious] jewels of a crown, lifted high over andshining glitteringly upon His land. 17 For how great is God’s goodness and how great is His beauty! And how great [He will make Israel’s] goodliness and [Israel’s] beauty! Grain shall make the young men thrive and fresh wine the maidens.
1 Chronicles 11:11 David’s 30 mighty men, and the 30 captains: (The age of maturity is 30)
And this is the number [thirty, and list] of David’s mighty men: Jashobeam, a Hachmonite, the chief of the Thirty [captains]. He lifted up his spear against 300, whom he slew at one time.
The Lord is not only bringing forth the Mighty men and women of valor into the forefront, but He is also setting them in their new positions, and training them for special duties and assignments ahead of them. Below are some of the key verses for us to look at. Study the whole chapter for more insights into the other weapons they used.
1 Chronicles 12:1 These are the ones who came to David at Ziklag, while he yet concealed himself because of Saul son of Kish; they were among the mighty men, his helpers in war. 2 They were bowmen and could use the right hand or the left to sling stones or shoot arrows from the bow; they were of Saul’s kinsmen of Benjamin. 14 These Gadites were officers of the army. The lesser was equal to and over a hundred, and the greater equal to and over a thousand. 15 These are the men who went over the Jordan in the first month when it had overflowed all its banks, and put to flight all those in the valleys, east and west.16 There came some of the men of Benjamin and Judah to the stronghold to David. 17 David went out to meet them and said to them, If you have come peaceably to me to help me, my heart shall be knit to you; but if you have come to betray me to my adversaries, although there is no violence or wrong in my hands, may the God of our fathers look upon and rebuke you.18 Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Yours we are, David, and on your side, you son of Jesse! Peace, peace be to you, and peace be to your helpers, for your God helps you. Then David received them and made them officers of his troops. 33 Of Zebulun, 50,000 experienced troops, fitted out with all kinds of weapons and instruments of war that could order and set the battle in array, men not of double purpose but stable and trustworthy. 38 All these, being men of war arrayed in battle order, came with a perfect andsincere heart to Hebron to make David king over all Israel; and all the rest also of Israel were of one mind to make David king.
The new emerging leaders will be knit together from their very soul and heart, and they will walk in like vision and in unified purpose. Together, they will be a formidable force, the very army of the Lord. They will rout out and destroy every enemy, and take back that which belongs to the Kingdom of the Lord, and establish His true Habitations in every land.
It's time to bend your bow!
