IT’S TIME TO ADVANCE-READY SET GO!
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matt. 11:12 NKJV)
What an awesome time to be in the Body of Christ! The atmosphere was charged with powerful currents of the Holy Spirit as He downloaded visions, prophetic acts, and declarations. Lord, come on strong and send Your winds of change!
Prophetic Word: I saw armored tanks rushing in out of the mountains pulling in behind the Watch of the Lord ® tonight. It was a picture that reminded her of the story of PFC Martin, a single paratrooper with a fox-hole that became the turning point in the Battle of the Bulge in WWII:
The Watch is the Strongpoint
Late on the night of December 23rd, 1944, Sergeant John Banister of the 14th Cavalry Group found himself meandering through the village of Provedroux, southwest of Vielsalm. He'd been separated from his unit during the wild retreat of the first days and joined up with Task Force Jones, defending the southern side of the Fortified Goose Egg. Now they were in retreat again. The Germans were closing in on the village from three sides. American vehicles were pulling out, and Banister was once again separated from his new unit, with no ride out.
A tank destroyer rolled by; somebody waved him aboard and Banister eagerly climbed on. They roared out of the burning town. Somebody told Banister that he was riding with Lieutenant Bill Rogers. "Who's he?" Banister wanted to know. "Will Rogers' son," came the answer. It was a heck of a way to meet a celebrity.
An hour later they reached the main highway running west from Vielsalm. There they found a lone soldier digging a foxhole. Armed with bazooka and rifle, unshaven and filthy, he went about his business with a stoic nonchalance. They pulled up to him and stopped. He didn't seem to care about the refugees. "If yer lookin for a safe place," he said, "just pull that vehicle behind me. I'm the 82nd Airborne. This is as far as the bleeps are going."
The men on the tank destroyer hesitated. After the constant retreats of the last week, they didn't have much fight left in them. But the paratrooper's determination was infectious. "You heard the man," declared Rogers. "Let's set up for business!" Twenty minutes later, two truckloads of GIs joined their little roadblock. All through the night, men trickled in, and their defenses grew stronger. Around that single paratrooper was formed the nucleus of a major strongpoint for the Allies as they came back to defeat the Germans at the Battle of the Bulge.
We are receiving confirmation and affirmation on where we’re taking our stand this season. The Holy Spirit is present with a word for you. Some of us are loaded for bear, but are letting the small stuff make us sweat. You never know who you’re influencing and who’s influencing you. Every day we are making eternal history. You are the hero in the epic adventure. You are a lone soldier digging in a fox hole to take a stand, not to hide. If you’re looking for a safe place, pull in behind me! We are the heavenly 82nd airborne. This is as far as the enemy is going tonight! We have the view of the Holy Ghost Victor living inside us. Let’s go set up for business. The Watch of the Lord ® is the strongpoint. The heavenly, supernatural strongpoint is being established tonight. We have a Holy Ghost virus inside of us, and we are the victor. The battle is being turned and won for us and our nation! We will not retreat and we call the heavenly defenses to come in line for advance!
Bonnie drew on her hand the places the Lord identified as areas for the Lord to shift. She told everyone to identify those areas that need a shift. The Lord is opening a door for us to get on His vibration, for heaven’s army to get behind us, for a shift in our strongpoints where we’re digging in. The judgments against us are being reversed and shall not stand!
She told of how there was a bird trapped in her sunroom at home. As she opened the door so the bird could get free, the words came out of her mouth from Ps. 124, “The Lord has not given us as prey. The snare is broken and we have escaped the fowler’s snare.” The door is open and we speak now shift. The Lord is on your side of this deal!
Declaration: The judgments that were against me are reversed and this thing that has been trapping me is broken tonight and I have been set free. Amen!
Korea: The set time of favor has come. Double portion and transformation. Joel 2. God will bring down the tyrannical leaders. We stand as the 82nd airborne. We ask that You give us half as You extend Your scepter. We ask for North Korea to be restored and liberated. We call down heaven to earth. The Church will bring unity between North and South Korea. We declare blessing and that Korea will be Your bread basket. A city on a hill. Bring deliverance O Lord. The South will rise again in the Spirit of the Living God. Scattered people worshipping God will then come together and move as one.
Economy: We say we have the keys and we open doors that God may come in and fill it. We ask God to show up and shift the plates in our economy. We release the Spirit of the Lord’s blessing upon this nation’s economy. The mysteries of the kingdom of heaven have been given to us to know the answers to unlock new avenues of business. God rescues out of the pit.
America: Father, step in the ring like a mighty warrior. Our hope is in You and You are the victor!
Nations: We rebuke any hindrance that is stopping the Presence of the Lord from filling up the nations! Fill up every void.
Acts 2:17; Isa. 11:11, 61:1-2; Ps. 102:13; Luke 11; Matt. 28:29; Jer. 20:10-11; Rom. 8:37; Dan. 6
Prophetic Act: Everyone was told to place their right hand in front of the face and “talk to the hand.” The hand represented strongholds, hindrances, and obstacles in our mind that are blocking the fullness of God in our lives. We are shifting from victims to victors! 1 John 5:4
Declaration: We are more than conquerors through Him who loves us!
Word: My car door was left wide open on the passenger side as we entered the Watch of the Lord ® tonight. Someone came and told me that my door was wide open. The word of the Lord is that the door is wide open for us tonight! A vehicle represents ministry. Ready, Set, Go! We are a force to go as ministers of reconciliation. No fear!
Prophetic Act: Everyone went out one door and came in another as a confirmation to the doors being wide open and shifting our circumstances. We entered the second door in victory and freedom. Yeah God!
Word: When the dust settles, God’s people will be standing. We are a demonstration of God in the earth. A divine exchange is happening now. Matt. 13:11.
Prophetic Act: A picture was seen of a train and watchmen began to pull in behind each other as a locomotive around the sanctuary. Bonnie rang her bell as the train advanced! Isa. 6:1-3. Nothing can stop this train bound for glory!
Prophetic Act: We got our keys out and began to shake them to bind those things over us and loose those things we need for victory. Rev. 3:7; Matt. 16:19; Isa. 22:22. We have access to every storehouse and keys to open the door!
Prophetic Act: Made a human wall to represent the oppression that divides and imprisons North Korea. Had three of our children stand in front of the “wall” and declare freedom. The human wall fell as the girls declared freedom and shofar blowers sounded the trumpet to bring down the wall.
