Three of us met today at my office, along with six others by conference call (telephone) to go before the divine court. We started at 1:04 pm and ended at 1:25 pm.
Our mission was to overthrow the four ruling archprinces over the four beast empires:
1. Babylon: Red Dragon overthrown by Michael.
2. Persia: Abaddon/Apollyon overthrown by Peniel.
3. Greece: Vainglory overthrown by the twin angels, Amet and Amen.
4. Rome: Usurper overthrown by Gabriel.
I wrote about this last February.
Along with these that were overthrown were an unknown number of their associates under their authority. We also prayed to be in unity with all who were praying at the same time, wherever they were, insofar as they were praying according to the Father’s perfect will.
Another group of 9 were praying in Central City, NE where the solar eclipse was total. So we are aware of two groups of 9 people each. No doubt there were thousands more.
Those into witchcraft were also at work, attempting to use the eclipse against God’s people. Their prayer is to cut us off from the light, whereas our purpose was to overcome the darkness. Needless to say, we won our case, at least in the overall sense, but unfortunately, those who remain lawless and vulnerable to the spells of the dark side may be affected by the spells from the dark side. In other words, it may take awhile before our victory applies to them.
We finished by reading Revelation 15:3,
3 And they sang the song of Moses the bondservant of God and the song of the Lamb, saying, “Great and marvelous are Thy works, O Lord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Thy ways, Thou king of the nations.”
When finished, we were reminded that Revelation 15:3 contains the number 153, the biblical number for the “sons of God.” We had not noticed that earlier.
Our court case ended just before the clock turned from 1:25 to 1:26 pm. So this took place in a period of 21-22 minutes, moving from “Distress” to “Sons of Light.” That seemed to picture the eclipse, where the darkness is the equivalent of distress, followed by the light. Again, there was no way to plan this ahead of time, as we simply did our business in whatever time it might take to accomplish.
What does it mean?
We obtained the victory immediately, but this will actually be a three-day battle to overthrow these archprinces, to bind them, and to bring them to judgment. As usual, however, we obtain the victory before the battle. No one should go into battle without knowing the outcome. I hate losing, and I know that God does not send us into battles that we cannot win. Further, if we are led by the Spirit, and if the enemy has no legal claim against us in the court, we cannot lose.
This has prepared us for the coming prayer campaign called Renewing the Covenant, scheduled for August 23. Just as Israel received two covenants in the wilderness under Moses—the first in Exodus 19 and the second forty years later in Deuteronomy 29, so also has the church had to repeat this pattern in the Age of Pentecost.
If the church had truly understood the difference between the two covenants, as Paul explained them, they would have been under the New Covenant from the start. However, most did not, and so, following the pattern of Israel in its 40-year wilderness sojourn, the church has labored under an Old Covenant mindset for the past 40 Jubilee cycles.
But we are now at the end of the wilderness, and so the second covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1) is being given in preparation for entering the Promised Land of the Kingdom.
Renewing the Covenant, then, does not refer to relabeling the Old Covenant with a new name, “New Covenant,” but rather to the renewal of the Deuteronomy covenant. We are not renewing or repeating Israel’s vow, which, if kept, would make Yahweh our God and make us His people (Exodus 19:5, 6, 7, 8). Israel tried that and failed.
The church too has tried that and failed. Most Christian doctrine has taught that Israel failed because they did not have the Holy Spirit to help their flesh be obedient. They have thought that since the day of Pentecost, God has empowered the flesh to fulfill its vow of obedience. But the church has failed, even after nearly 2000 years of trying to establish the Kingdom. So now it is time to renew the second Covenant, wherein God vows to make it happen (Deuteronomy 29:12, 13, 14, 15).
We will not be making more vows on August 23. We will be appealing to God to fulfill His vow, or oath, recognizing that He has taken upon Himself the responsibility to make us His people, so that He may be our God in the full sense of the word. It is an appeal to God’s ability and to His sovereignty. It is not to ask God to help our flesh be good enough to succeed. We have no confidence in the flesh—not even when our flesh is (or seems to be) “Spirit-filled.”
Take this remaining time from August 21-23 to meditate upon this great truth, so that you can renew the covenant with understanding as well as by faith.
When God steps into a situation, we are often taken by surprise by His methods of answering prayer. I believe that in this case we will see the initial stage of divine intervention within this 40-day cycle from August 23 to September 30. In taking responsibility to turn our hearts, He will be turning up the heat and upsetting the stability of the earthly nations. It is only when men’s foundational stability is undermined that they begin to seek answers. When disasters hit, people “go to church.” When things go back to normal, people go back to sleep. That is the pattern.
I expect that in the next 40 days we will see the start of a great shaking, designed to thrown down everything that is contrary to His Kingdom, so that—in the end—all that remains standing will be that which is in alignment with Christ, His laws, and His Kingdom as a whole. Know that the things that cause fear in the hearts of unbelievers are actually answers to prayer and are not designed to overthrow YOU, but to set you free.
Remember what Revelation 12:7-12 says. When the Red Dragon of Babylon is overthrown and cast down to the earth, it is not a time of rejoicing for most of the people on earth. Instead, “woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
Today, we are well aware that when we called in Michael to overthrow the Red Dragon, we were stirring the pot. I believe that this will initiate a time of chaos and “wrath.” I wish we could avoid this, but we cannot go beyond the word of God. We can certainly pray for individual protection during this time, as we see written in Revelation 12:14-16; however, for the world at large, God is using the wrath of the Red Dragon to bring judgment, thereby motivating them to seek God.
Those with faith in God and in His promise/vow/oath will find protection under the wings of the “great eagle,” which brought Israel out of Egypt (Exodus 19:4). We too are being brought out of the house of bondage, today known as Mystery Babylon. So let us be found as true Israelites, having the faith of Abraham, and not as unbelieving Egyptians, who seek to enslave others.
