The Lord is raising up a company of “WARRIOR HEROES” in the spiritual realm! We are called to take a stand against the enemy and do exploits in the power of His name; the way to peace is allowing Yahweh Shalom to lead you in victory (warfare) over the enemy. As Robert Heidler shared yesterday from the life of Gideon, only when God’s heroes defeat the enemy can there be true rest in the land.
Help is on the Way! His Name is the Key to Unlock Your Way of Escape!
Dreams are an important way that the Lord communicates with us. He is very creative, and we never want an avenue of revelation blocked. Yesterday morning, Linda Heidler shared a dream about three gray figures that captured her and contorted her body to fit completely in a 2-foot box. She was then stacked along with many, many similar boxes, and had to hear her way of escape from what appeared to be a hopeless situation. (I encourage you to listen to the complete dream on GZITV.)
This scenario represents how the enemy is trying to put us in a very narrow place. However, I heard the Spirit of God say, “Although the enemy is coming to try to form a three-fold cord against you to minimize you, lock you into a place, and make you common with everything around you, I have already put in you the way to get out, the way to call out. I have put in you the help that is already on the way. You will be delivered and come through this narrow place and be brought out into the place that I have for you. My Name is key to unlock what you need to have unlocked. So get ready – help is on the way!” Declare that your help is being unlocked by the power of His Name!
We must remain sensitive to what the Spirit of God is speaking in the night season.
During this 40-day period, we must continue to set our face like a flint to gain the revelation that uncovers the enemy. Our next watch will be tonight at 7 PM CDT when Linda Heidler teaches on “Aligning the Armies of Heaven and Earth!” Let’s continue to seek the Lord’s new order and alignment with the Host of Heaven in this online-only gathering that will also be available by replay.
Receive a New Backbone of Authority!
The Lord is developing a new level of authority in His people. On Sunday morning, there was a “backbone” anointing activated during worship. LeAnn Squier even shared about the woman bent over and who could not stand up straight (Luke 13: 10-17). Later that day, we received this incredible update from Linda Clark, who has been struggling with back issues for years.
“I watched the worship gathering after someone told me about the words released on the backbone. I’ve made it through my third spinal surgery. This time it was in L2 & L3. I had so much pain prior to surgery that I could not walk well or straight, but this surgery was hellish for a season. I had about 9 bone grafts. My back was broken in order to recreate the spinal curve I had lost in the first surgery. I now walk upright — no pain where it used to be — and I believe the surgeon may have gotten close to my 45 degree angle back. (I was a 65, – 15 degrees off.) I’m still recovering, but the worst is over. Thanks for the prayers! Somehow my situation, I believe, has something to do with the Body. He is straightening and strengthening our spines/backbones for sure, but now our muscles have to catch up and our walking be regained so we can be better than ever before.”
As we watch the heart-wrenching scenes in Afghanistan (and elsewhere around the world), we have a choice on how to respond and how to intercede. Particularly through the end of the month, I know the Lord has directed me to pray for the “Rahabs” in Afghanistan – men and women who put their lives (and their families’ lives) in danger to help our forces along the way and protect us from the Taliban. As a nation, we must recognize, honor and work to protect those who served our national interests.
Earlier today, Daniel Pierce recorded how the Lord is showing him to pray for Afghanistan. This includes the U.S troops and expats, as well as hidden, local believers in that nation. Having lived in the Middle East, he brings a unique perspective on the issues that surround this ongoing conflict. The Middle East mindset is different than a Western mindset, and understanding this warfare dynamic is key to helping us intercede effectively. Stay the course as you continue to declare God’s Kingdom will reign. Watch this video by Daniel and find your place to stand in the gap for Afghanistan.
When we study the Bible, it’s important to recognize that God’s names reveal His nature. They tell us what He is like and what we can expect from Him. God has revealed Himself by many names, and He wants you to know Him by each of His names and experience the reality of every part of His nature. The more you understand His names, the more you can appreciate who He is. Therefore, we want to understand the name that is above every name! As Robert Heidler shared yesterday, the Hebrew word for salvation is YESHUA, and YESHUA (salvation) is what restores shalom. In the Old Testament we see YESHUA is prefigured and promised, and in the New Testament we discover God’s YESHUA is a person, our Savior. Only through His name can we be saved. As we hallow His Name and allow His identity to become prominent in our lives, His presence comes and His power is released. Be sure to watch our Celebration Service replay and enter into “Experiencing the Power of God’s Name!”
Go Through the Door of My Turn-Around Anointing!
As we saw in our “Rooftop Shabbat” Service, this is a time for going higher. As we choose to ascend in worship, we gain a higher perspective. The Spirit of God is saying, “This is a time that the locks you’ve put on your ascension will now break. Go through, go through that door that you’ve kept shut, for on the other side is perspective you’ve never had before! Quit looking at a line that you can see the end of! Go beyond and see beyond — into a place you’ve never seen before!” Visit the Prophecy Center to see this complete prophetic release and begin to sing your song of advance!
A Call to be Whole!
Many of us are reaching the close of our 28-Day “Overcoming” Prayer Focus. Although there are many conflicts ahead for each one of us, the Lord is bringing new strength to His people so we are restored and made whole again. Many in the West tend to compartmentalize their lives into physical, mental and spiritual (or body, soul and spirit), but the proper Biblical worldview is one of a unified, whole person in whom these parts are not separate entities, but are interconnected. God’s interest in sanctifying us is not limited to only the spiritual being of an individual, but He desires to see the whole person restored. I begin each day with the Lord so I can better understand His heart and mind. As you develop your identity as an overcomer, I encourage you to continue your process of becoming whole – spirit, soul and body!
