I had a vision. In the vision, Believers were given weapons, some by God, and some even by the enemy! Some had bows with fiery arrows, some had staffs, and some rods of Strength. Some had built-in weapons like fire 🔥 on their hands. There were darts 🎯 labeled “words” and weird things that looked like millstones. There were nooses and flaming ⚔️ swords. Some were on foot, some horses, and some on lookouts. The enemy was laid out in masses, people he had blinded standing row upon row like dumb zombies, half asleep. But then the Believers, instead of advancing on the enemy, loosed their weapons on each other! The friendly fire 🔥 was horrible!! People were chopped down by those closest to each other, and were burning down churches ⛪, and ministries, and platforms, but not by the will or order of the Father! The enemy sat back and laughed and pointed! Then his minions advanced on the carnage.
As I have been traveling to different groups of Believers over the last year, following only God’s promptings and requests, I have found truth and attacks of the enemy to deceive in almost every group (the enemy doesn’t bark at parked cars going nowhere!); but the thing in common most of them had was “dogging” on other groups of Believers. They put down traditional church, or no church, or home church, or supernatural church, or so and sos ministry. Some said the “sign gifts aren’t for today”, or “tongues have ceased”, quoting Scripture to defend every point….while the tongues-speaking believers put down the cessation camps…sometimes using the same Scripture! And the Lord just shook His head. He has placed each one of them like chess pieces, each capable of reaching someone. We are all a hand, or a foot, or a finger, not a one better than the other. He is no respecter of persons, but He did whisper to me one day that some of His best friends are on the “heretics list”. I think He is calling us all to come up higher, and attack the enemy from higher ground. Where he becomes a little snake in the grass, and our petty differences become the beautiful squares of a tapestry He is knitting together. That no one teacher or camp or religion or doctrine holds all the answers, that we still see as through a glass, darkly. Lets first look to Him! Let’s start trying to see face to face, fight back to back, and link arms with all the ones who profess Jesus Christ came in the flesh, died and rose again, and quit trying to “expose” our brother and sister, and “expose” the enemy instead.
“Jesus knew their thoughts, so He said, “Any Kingdom at war with itself is doomed. You say I am empowered by the prince of demons. But if satan is fighting against himself by empowering me to cast out his demons, how can his kingdom survive? And if I am empowered by the prince of demons, what about your own followers? They cast out demons, too, so they will judge you for what you have said. But if I am casting out demons by the power of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you. For when satan, who is completely armed, guards his palace, it is safe— until someone who is stronger attacks and overpowers him, strips him of his weapons, and carries off his belongings.” Luke 11:17-21.
Lord, I declare that people really seek your face before they speak a word against your people. That we carry weapons of light, harmless to each other but deadly to darkness. I speak love over every disagreement, Peace in every situation, correction in love, calls for repentance and turning toward God. A dance where when someone misses a step that God is allowed to lead and instruct without the Body chopping off the foot. Where 70X7 is the math, and the equation is purity and holiness squared. I declare the weapons of the enemy disarmed, trophies confiscated and schemes exposed. That lying and hateful tongues are silenced and TRUTH be the only voice at the microphone.
“Live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.” 1 Corinthians 1:10
