You can look at any nation in the world and see that the times we are living in are different. This is a season like no other season before in history. Now, more than ever, it is so important for every believer to be listening to the Holy Spirit and leaning into the Lord. Hearing from God and doing exactly what He says are critical in this hour.
I recently had a prophetic dream where the demonic warfare was so intense that I could sense it even after I woke up. In this prophetic dream, the warfare was tangible. I knew the enemy was unleashing everything he possibly could against the people of God and those advancing the kingdom of God. The Lord spoke to me in the dream and said, "There will be increased warfare. But if the church will use her power and authority, there will also be increased victories."
After I woke up from the dream, it was still heavy on my mind and spirit. I got up and began to pray, listening to hear from the Lord about the dream. As I prayed, I strongly sensed that this was a time for the church and the body of Christ to stand up and use our authority against the increased warfare. The enemy is attempting to come in like a flood, unleashing chaos, fear and confusion to anyone in his way. However, there may be increased warfare, but we are about to see increased victories!
This is an hour for intercessors to be like watchmen set on the wall to reverse the attacks of the enemy and see the kingdom of God prevail. When we sense the increase in warfare, we must also anticipate increased victory. By using the power and authority God has given to us, we will see the warfare of the enemy defeated and victory come to the people of God!
I feel that there is another wave of perversion and corruption that the enemy wants to release over America. However, I believe that we must raise the standard in prayer and fasting to see this wave stopped and to see victory for the kingdom of God.
The enemy wants to use every weapon he has against America and those God has called to lead. However, we can combat this increase in warfare and see a shift by using the power and authority God has given us.
Every prayer, every declaration and decree you make in this season matters. Men and women of God, this is the hour to stand up and use your authority in Christ. This is an hour for the church to walk in power and see victory over the enemy. This is an hour for the church to stand up boldly and use the full authority and dominion Jesus has given to His people.
In the face of such increased warfare, I believe God is raising up pure voices. God is raising up burning men and women full of character and the Spirit of God to raise their voices against the enemy and see heaven invade earth.
This is the Hebrew year of the mouth; this is the year of the roar! This is not the time to sit back in fear and stay silent. No! Church, this is your hour. If you are a son or daughter of God, it is time for your voice to be heard.
There is victory in your voice. Revival, outpouring, awakening and reformation are on the horizon for America and the nations of the world. But, in order to see it manifested in the earth, the people of God must stand up and fight against the increased warfare to see increased victory!
