Spiritual warfare is intensifying and continuing for longer than what I usually see in the Spirit.
This year, I have prophesied that we are in a fierce battle. We are at a dividing line, where the rubber meets the road and we have choices to make.
As a spiritual warfare and deliverance minister, I have never seen this much warfare in the spiritual realm. Usually, the world experiences warfare for a few weeks or a couple of months, but I have seen constant battle in the spiritual realm and have experienced spiritual warfare attacks since Jan. 1 of this year.
What is waging this serious warfare in our lives? I believe it is multifaceted. As we begin our year, a good portion of Christians enter a time of prayer and fasting. As we know from the Scriptures, Jesus experienced warfare when praying and fasting. I call this "standard warfare."
Even the days preceding our time of prayer and fasting I will call "ordinary warfare" because we can expect the enemy to try and "steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10) our intimate and breakthrough time with the Lord.
The Lord told me last year that everything would change in March. I didn't know exactly what that meant, but as we know, everything did change. The coronavirus was covering the earth, and stay-at-home orders and quarantines were starting to be issued and are still continuing. The plague releasing over the earth, the Lord showed me, is fueling a principality of fear over the earth.
People are in fear. We know medical ailments, financial uncertainty and fear of sickness and death can make us fear. Still, when we corporately fear, and that is which we are doing, it is fueling a stronghold and principality of fear over the earth. The Lord spoke to me and said, "We have to live in faith when everyone else is exuding fear." Out of this word, I created a free e-course on How to Conquer Fear at charismacourses.com/.
We are now walking out of the coronavirus, but I am still hearing from the Lord that chaos, destruction and confusion are ahead. I have been pressing into what the Lord has to say with all the spiritual warfare that has been running rampant. Even though I do believe the economy is going to rebound, and the coronavirus is going to dissipate, I still hear there is something else coming. I don't believe this intense warfare is going to cease anytime soon.
The election this year is going to be tough. I feel political parties are going to have their own agendas and create some things happening to the world to throw the election off. We might see it as spiritual warfare, but I have felt the Lord showing me last year that this year is going to be a year of good and bad, and a year of corruption in our government. A year of acceleration for the kingdom of God, but also planned attacks in the natural, and spiritual warfare attacks that will affect us physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Friends, I am encouraging you to pray. Pray on the offense! Pray against the spiritual warfare attacks that are plaguing the earth. I have seen the principality of fear lighten over the past couple of weeks; now we need to continue in prayer—offensive, audible warfare prayer to annihilate every demonic principality and kingdom trying to come against the greatest revival we could ever see.
