Hydra has been assisting the Prince of Persia (Apollyon) lately in the spiritual battle. Since these battles are fought in the timeless realm of the heavens, I am quite sure that Daniel’s prince (i.e., Michael), mentioned in Daniel 10:21, was also fighting Hydra. Obviously, very few of the demonic entities in the battle were mentioned in Scripture. We know that certainly there were many more that remained anonymous and that we would find ourselves up against them as well.
Hydra is one of them. We first encountered Hydra (along with Python) in 1988 in the story of Jimmy Swaggart. (See chapter 16 of The Wars of the Lord.) A news article quoted Swaggart in his first sermon after returning to the pulpit:
“Swaggart began his sermon by recalling two dreams he had a year ago in which he fought two serpents—both about 100 feet long. He defeated the first, but asked for God’s help to defeat the second. Without elaborating, Swaggart said, ‘I did not know what it (the dream) meant, but today I know what it meant’.” (The News-Leader, Springfield, Missouri, May 23, 1988).
The night after Swaggart’s sermon (quoted above) Jimmy Melton and I engaged in spiritual warfare against Hydra and Python on behalf of Jimmy Swaggart. In fact, we did not know that we were interceding for Jimmy Swaggart until our warfare ended. The news article then was published the following morning.
In The Wars of the Lord, I wrote this:
“In other words, Jimmy Swaggart understood that his problem was spiritual, and that God had warned him of this in two dreams a year earlier (1987). He assumed that he was able to deal with the first spirit (Python) by himself. To deal with the second (Hydra), he “asked for God’s help.” In effect, he asked that God would send someone on earth to help him pray and overcome just the second spirit.
“He did not know that both of these spirits would require help. And so, he asked for help only with one of them. That was, I believe, why God sent Jimmy and I into spiritual battle the night of May 22, 1988. It was to answer Swaggart’s cry for help against the spirit of Hydra.”
He should not have assumed that he was capable of dealing with one but not the other. He needed God’s help with both of them. Because of his assumption, we were able to defeat Hydra but not Python, and this left Swaggart vulnerable to further attack.
We fought Python from 1996-1999 in the Dragon Wars (chapter 18, The Wars of the Lord). Today, we find ourselves fighting against Hydra in a new timeless dimension of the spirit. With the precedent of victory already established in 1988, we had no difficulty imprisoning Hydra this week. His fate is now in the hands of the great Judge.
Through this, God revealed that Hydra is the spiritual entity attempting to provoke a war over Taiwan through Nancy Pelosi, who went to Taiwan yesterday (August 2). While the danger is still real, Hydra’s imprisonment will probably cause that plan to fail.
There are forces in the world that are trying to start World War 3 in Ukraine, Taiwan, Serbia, and Iran. Perhaps there are specific spiritual entities assigned to each situation. If so, it is yet unclear which entities are over which arena of potential war.
Today I received a communication from John saying,
“Bradley had a visitation from an unknown angel this morning to say that all-out war has broken out in the heavens since the message on the History book was revealed.”
Recall that August 2-3, 1990 was when Iraq invaded Kuwait at the instigation of the US government. Our ambassador suggested to them that the US government would be okay with Iraq’s annexation of Kuwait—and then acted indignant when it happened! The point is that we are again seeing war in the heavens break out in the new context today.
Continue to pray for those who are on the front lines of this warfare. Your support can greatly lessen the pressure and make the battle easier to handle.
Event: June 26, 2022
Recall that a Divine Council meeting of 8 couples was held here on June 25-26 to decide on some important matters affecting America as a whole. What we did not know was that at the same time another meeting of 8 women (the “red heifer” group near Houston) was also taking place. God is known to work independently with different groups on the same project. When we eventually compare notes, both groups are given greater insights into what they were doing.
In Houston, the main event occurred at the moment the women entered the door of the house. Because some had been exposed to covid, the door was anointed, and each one who came through the door was also anointed for protection. With the anointing came a prophetic word, calling the door a “portal” into a new holy place (sanctuary) in Christ.
Just as God uses ordinary people to represent extraordinary types of Christ, so also does He use names and places (and doors) to represent extraordinary spiritual things. It is part of the manner in which heaven comes to earth in little ways that are cumulative in the big picture.
The red heifer group met again on July 31, coinciding with our own recent events. Everyone was instructed to bring a Scripture. Instructions were given to make a mulligan stew. The red heifer group, of course, has been fulfilling the burnt offering (Numbers 19:5) in each of their lives. It is a prophetic death work. So they were also instructed to put all the death into the pot of mulligan stew. They were led to call Vanita, who reminded them of 2 Kings 4:38, 39, 40, which is the 8th sign of Elisha involving “death in the pot.”
They went on to note 2 Kings 4:42-44, which is Elisha’s 9th sign and the start of the double portion of Elijah. This is where we now stand, and this is the spiritual reason for the all-out war that currently rages in the heavens. John is currently receiving the brunt of this warfare as it manifests in the earth. As an intercessor, he stands in the gap, taking the majority of the punches on our behalf.
Please pray for him for health and strength.
August 2-3 has been a critical time in regard to the transition from the 8th to the 9th sign of Elisha. When things are completed, and the danger is past, I will be able to say more. No doubt, the full story will be told when I complete the final book in my series called My Journey, dealing with the events from 2017-2024.
