🙏Stepping Up Prayer Room Intercessory Prayer:

Not by Might Nor by Power, but by your Spirit LORD

Father send your Spirit to chase away every demonic spirit in the land. Send your power to overcome the forces of iniquity & darkness among your people.

Intervene LORD in this nation to turn the hearts of the father to the children and the hearts of the children to the father.

Come and flood this land with your Spirit! Let rivers of truth immerse your people, those you have created; redeemed and marked for redemption.

Arise Father and show your strong arm against leviathan the enemy of our souls.

March forth like the man of war that you are, Yahweh Gibbor and show your strength, O Mighty God of the Armies of Heaven, release your fury upon our enemy, break his neck, stamp on his head and release the captives from the North, South East and West.

Demand release of those in captivity, reject the sounding trumpet calling them to join Gog and Magog, the enemy in disguise as their deliverer.

Open our eyes, mighty one of Israel!

Shut the mouth of our aggressors!

Destroy the weapons of destruction!

Arm your people with strength, that they may match on in victory.

We are your people, tillers of your land, harvesters of souls; missionaries for your cause, light-bearers unrelenting, Ambassadors of Christ yielding and tireless to bring multitudes into your tabernacle of Praise, glorious to behold.

Not by our might we serve, but by your Spirit LORD…breath on us!

📸Snapshots of Glory – Word Focus 2 Day: The Battle is the LORD’s – True Worshippers are guaranteed Victory in Life’s battles Parts 1 & 2

Scriptural focus 2 Chronicles 20

Part 1 Summary of the qualities expected of a true worshipper or a committed child of God.

A true worshipper has the following nature and lifestyle:

1.Seek and waits on God for guidance or direction.

2.Prayer and fasting is a lifestyle with expectation to hear God speak.

3.Even if they experience the emotion of fear, a true worshipper remembers their authority in Christ and that they are empowered by God because the Holy Spirit is within them and is guiding them.

Therefore as Jehoshaphat, rather than accept defeat when faced with danger in times of fear when they feel weak and helpless they take refuge in Him (God) who gives them strength and strategies to overcome.

4.A true worshipper accepts that they are called to be relational with fellow brethren for God and Christ are relational. Cihrist prayed to God for his disciples

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” (John 17:21 NLT).

While Jehoshaphat must have trusted God to answer his prayers, he also knew that unity in prayer and fasting pleased God and so called the nation of Judah to fast and pray.

Therefore when faced with issues that concern or affect them collectively either as a church or nation, a true worshipper is not one to isolate themselves but rather join in with the brethren to engage with one another in intercession and worship before God.

Part 2 The Battle is The LORD’s:

Prayer & listening to God, the keys to receiving God’s wise strategies for victory.

PRAYER GATHERINGS, THE KEY TO BEING AN OVERCOMER FROM YOUR GATHERED ENEMIES

A consolidated army of surrounding nations advance to attack Judah – A call to fast and pray

Armies from surrounding nations had gathered together stationed to begin to attack Judah. King Jehoshaphat of Judah was terrified but he knew that the only way to overcome this fear is to seek He who is able to deliver and so He sought the LORD for guidance as to what to do. He ordered all the people of Judah to fast, they gathered in Jerusalem to seek the LORD’s help.

Jehoshaphat prayed

“5 Jehoshaphat stood before the community of Judah and Jerusalem in front of the new courtyard at the Temple of the Lord. 6 He prayed, “O Lord, God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is in heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty; no one can stand against you! 7 O our God, did you not drive out those who lived in this land when your people Israel arrived? And did you not give this land forever to the descendants of your friend Abraham?

8 Your people settled here and built this Temple to honor your name. 9 They said, ‘Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war,[d] plague, or famine, we can come to stand in your presence before this Temple where your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and you will hear us and rescue us.’

10 “And now see what the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir are doing. You would not let our ancestors invade those nations when Israel left Egypt, so they went around them and did not destroy them.

11 Now see how they reward us! For they have come to throw us out of your land, which you gave us as an inheritance. 12 O our God, won’t you stop them? We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.”

ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO BE USED BY GOD IF AND WHEN HE NEEDS YOU?

ARE YOU RAISING YOUR FAMILY THAT WAY?

Prophetic Word of encouragement was given.

It is worthy to note that the prophecy was given when the Spirit of God came upon one of the men gathered whose name was Jahaziel, a descendant of Asaph. He was not a well known prophet yet Jehoshaphat did not reject the Word, He humbly received it.

God speaks through anyone He chooses, and we can only know it is God and therefore not miss His blessing if we have a heart like Jehoshaphat; humble and close to God, dependant on Him as a true “sheep” for His sheep know his voice, they recognise it is Him speaking regardless of what His voice sounds like or the vessel through whom He speaks.

Jahaziel came from a musical family, as a descendant of Asaph. He was from a household of musicians or worshippers and God chose the Spirit of prophecy to manifest through him at such a crucial time when the nation was assembled waiting on God.

This ought to speak to us; our lives should be lived in such a way that we practice what we profess to be, true worshippers of God through Christ Jesus at all times. In doing so, we open ourselves up to hear from God not just for ourselves but also other people and even nations.

We and our descendants can be trusted by God to be His vessels to fulfil as well as convey His plans, some of which could bring great deliverance to nations as in the case of Asaph’s descendant Jahaziel. God said through Jahaziel, before Jehoshaphat and the crowd

“15 Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lordsays: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow, march out against them. You will find them coming up through the ascent of Ziz at the end of the valley that opens into the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you!””

PRAYER AND LISTENING TO GOD’S WORD RESULTS IN RECEIVING GOD’S WISE STRATEGIES FOR A VICTORIOUS OUTCOME

When Jehoshaphat having prayed accepted the prophetic Word of God, God gave Him the strategy of how to advance, he followed the instructions and Judah was victorious in the warfare against the great Army:

“18 Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people of Judah and Jerusalem did the same, worshiping the Lord. 19 Then the Levites from the clans of Kohath and Korah stood to praise the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud shout.

20 Early the next morning the army of Judah went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. On the way Jehoshaphat stopped and said, “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.”

21 After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang:

“Give thanks to the Lord;

his faithful love endures forever!”

22 At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lordcaused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.

23 The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other.

24 So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped.

25 King Jehoshaphat and his men went out to gather the plunder. They found vast amounts of equipment, clothing,[e] and other valuables—more than they could carry. There was so much plunder that it took them three days just to collect it all!26 On the fourth day they gathered in the Valley of Blessing,[f] which got its name that day because the people praised and thanked the Lord there. It is still called the Valley of Blessing today.

27 Then all the men returned to Jerusalem, with Jehoshaphat leading them, overjoyed that the Lord had given them victory over their enemies. 28 They marched into Jerusalem to the music of harps, lyres, and trumpets, and they proceeded to the Temple of the Lord.

29 When all the surrounding kingdoms heard that the Lordhimself had fought against the enemies of Israel, the fear of God came over them. 30 So Jehoshaphat’s kingdom was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side.

HAPPINESS IS KNOWING… Christ has paid the ultimate price: It is Finished!

Christ has already paid the ultimate price! We are more than conquerors through him who loves us (Romans 8:37). There is no need to despair, but to trust him!

 As a believer in Christ, God says to you as He said to Israel “I have loved you with an everlasting love and with loving kindness I have drawn you to me” (Jer 31:3).
Are you going through anything now? Sometimes our afflictions seem endless, but as God spoke through the prophet Isaiah to comfort Jerusalem, his precious city, so too I bring this word of comfort to you, His precious one “your

“…warfare is accomplished,..iniquity is pardoned…Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see [it] together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].” (Isaiah 40:2,4,5 KJV).

Yes, the afflictions of a believer are only temporarily and God intends for His glory to be revealed in our lives, so indeed if we suffer there is an ultimate purpose for the glory of God. 

When Jesus said on the CROSS “it is finished” (John 19:30) that is exactly what he meant! When he died for our sins and rose again the third day, our warfare was declared over. 

We only need to take hold of this truth and keep it at the forefront of our minds. We need not fret as long as we live in obedience to God’s Word. This is because God will always thwart the plans of the enemy, counteract the will of Satan and work all things out for our GOOD! (Psalm 33:10-12/Romans 8:28) To God be the glory great things He has done!!

You Are An Overcomer

I declare over your life today that
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD” (Is. 54:17 KJV).

What is a declaration? It is a formal, explicit statement or pronunciation or proclamation. The bible says God’s word is forever settled (Psalm 119:89). Therefore this declaration or statement (Is. 54:17) regarding God’s protection of you because you are His is settled! Just receive it and meditate over it, read it out loud, sing it over yourself because your God who wars on your behalf, delights in you and sings over you!
“The Lord your God is with you,the Mighty Warrior who saves.He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing” (Zeph. 3:17 NIV).

To God be the glory great things He has done!

The Lord says to you as He did to the children of Israel, this is your heritage:

1.”No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper…”

What is a weapon in this context? Anything that Satan uses to attack God’s people is a weapon. These include:

i.Objects such as talismans, voodoo dolls and amulets used in witchcraft and the occult.

ii.Human agents (by action or words)

-An individual, even a friend or family member, serving as an agent

-Satanic cults, witchcraft covens that engage in satanic séances, incantations

-A group of people, who could be a group of friends or a group of family members serving as satan’s agents.

Some people whether they are in the church or outside of it do not even realise they are being used as weapons. As we abide in Christ and He in us, our prayer is that we will strong in the LORD and in the power of His might so that we are not used by Satan and his demons.

If the weapons used against you do not prosper it is also true that the works or outcome of those diabolical weapons if they manage to manifest at all are powerless against you by almighty God. This is because you have the authority through Christ Jesus to withstand them. Jesus spoke of the fact that Satan has been defeated and that he has empowered his disciples which you are today:

“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:18-19 KJV).

 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”(Romans 8:37KJV)
Satan’s weapons and their works cannot stand or prosper because you are in right standing with God (righteous) and prospering in Him.

“2Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.(3 John 1:2 KJV)

Will you grasp these truths if you have not already and walk in the freedom that is your heritage as a child of God? If you have already done so it is time to be even more vigilant as you prepare to enter into the new year!
2.”…every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn..”

As one empowered by the Holy Spirit you are a powerful weapon in God’s hand for you have the power to condemn the enemy who attempts to condemn you!
1[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.(Romans 8:1-2 KJV).
As one who is righteous, empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit who makes intercession for you and through you according to the will of God, your earnest prayers “has great power and produces wonderful results” (NLT). Just take a moment to reflect on that!
Words released out of someone’s mouth a “Human satanic weapon”, which has condemned you, given you a negative picture of who you are and resulted in a sustained low self esteem even since your childhood are powerless once you come to Christ. Why? Because God’s words are the most powerful words which counteract, reverse and thwart the words that have been spoken against you since birth.
As you meditate on the word of God and declare it out loud as one in fellowship with the Holy Spirit who is the power of God,
-the voice of God is released in the atmosphere in all its power

-the testimony of Jesus (who is the Word of God) is made manifest.

Satan and his demons have no choice but to flee from the life of one who lives in the presence of God. This is because as a weapon and a mouthpiece of the almighty God, you are His “Battle Axe” (Jer. 51:20) or an instrument of His anointed voice and Holy Spirit that breaks demonic yoke and bondages.
 4The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.(Psalm 29: 4-5 KJV)

 20Thou [art] my battle axe [and] weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;21And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;…(Jer. 51:20-21 KJV)

If you believe that God’s words come to pass (Isaiah 55:10-12), then it means you also believe that they replace and so withstand the words of the enemy against you. This is what Jesus came to do, to engage in a divine exchange. When he died on the cross, he took on every curse, the written and spoken ordinances against you.

“14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;15[And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it ”(Col 1:14-15 KJV).

This is why it is important to meditate on God’s Word (the bible) over and over again and to declare them out loud. In so doing your heart (your innermost being of moral activity, your soul) comes in agreement with God’s word of truth, His predestined identity and destiny for you. There is therefore a renewal of mind and so an exchange of the lies and false presumptuous about life and who you are.

Every plan or scheme of satan through his “principalities, powers and the rulers of the dark world, spiritual wickedness” (KJV) is thwarted by almighty God who is the LORD of the heavenly armies (angels) in Jesus’ mighty name!

Brethren, let us therefore continue to be steadfast in abiding in God through our Lord Jesus Christ because in so doing, we allow God through His Word and by His power to condemn and render null and void all of Satan’s weapons, schemes and plans against us.

Thus living a life that daily bears witness to the LORD “who bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:10-11 KJV).

 Blessed are you “whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance” (Psalm 33:12 KJV).

 You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

The Warrior & his Weapon

James Naughtie, BBC Journalist reported on 7th January that Donald Trump’s “weapon of choice, forged for him like a legendary warrior’s sword in the furnace of the new technology, is Twitter”I take this opportunity to remind us, Remnants, Warriors of the Most High God that the “Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God” is our “Sharper than a two-edged sword” weapon of choice, flawless as 
“6..silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” (Psa.12:6 KJV) 

in addition, I decree and declare that 

“no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54:17 NLT)
  In Jesus’ Mighty Name Amen!!

PRAYER ROOM: Commanding the Morning & Day Spring JOB 38:12-25 (KJV)

EARLY MORNING PRAYER & DECLARATION BASED ON 
JOB 38:12-25 (KJV)

COMMANDING THE MORNING & DAY SPRING (DAWN)

Every day is established by you LORD God Almighty ! and therefore as your will for Job (chapter 38:12-15) was that he command the morning and the dawn to “know its place” (Ps. 38:12), I accept this as my calling because of the authority that I have in Christ Jesus (Luke 10:18-19).
I therefore command the morning and dawn from henceforth to know their place and be as (verse 14) “clay under the seal” (suppressed) and “hang as a garment” (immovable) when provoked into action as channels of Satan directly and through sorcerers in the mighty name of Jesus.

As concerns my destiny and that of my family and other loved ones and ………………(insert names of people, ministry, business etc…)

you (morning and dawn) shall only be responsive to Creator/Most High and Sovereign God for the earth, humanity and everything in it are under His control and dominion.

With the authority invested in me through Christ Jesus, I command you (morning & dawn) to obey the voice of the LORD and to “take hold of the ends of the earth and shake out the wicked” (verse 13) deeds and words that has been programmed and spoken against me, my family and other loved ones and ………….(insert names of people, ministry, business etc…).

I command the wicked to be (verse 15) blinded to that which concerns me, my family and loved ones and ………… (insert names of people, ministry, business etc…)

and that their “high arm be broken” in the mighty name of Jesus Amen

Exaltation of Warrior God & His Chosen King, Jesus Christ

Scriptural Exaltations II: Exaltation of Warrior God & His Chosen King, Jesus Christ

Most High God, you have shown yourself to be a warrior God on behalf of your people, I give you praise and exalt your name above every name for you are the only mighty, unconquerable Great One!

The righteous are filled with joy and sing your praises for you sent Jesus Christ, your Chosen King in righteousness and at His baptism when the Spirit descended upon him, you said “this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased” Then when the Prince of Peace, Jesus began his victorious life to take back the world you so love, while fasting in the wilderness he overcame the Prince of this world.

You handed over the nations to Christ as his inheritance with authority and might over them. Indeed he, your chosen King, is the one anointed for victory and all saints through him for he said “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,
that the blind will see,
that the oppressed will be set free…”
So “Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one.
Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.Then in anger he rebukes them,terrifying them with his fierce fury.
For the LORD declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.”

To the kings seated on thrones entrapped in hell, the LORD warns
“Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Submit to God’s royal son,[a]or he will become angry,
and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities—for his anger flares up in an instant.
But what joy for all who take refuge in him!”

Most compassionate God you said in ancient times to Israel “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.I will strengthen you and help you.I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. See, all your angry enemies lie there,confused and humiliated.Anyone who opposes you will die and come to nothing. You will look in vain for those who tried to conquer you.
Those who attack you will come to nothing. For I hold you by your right hand—
I, the Lord your God.
And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.”

In these times you continue to assure your children of your love and care. “Do not be anxious about anything, bring your petitions to me with thanksgiving and I will give you peace, that surpasses all understanding”, “Give all your worries and cares to me for I care for you” are your comforting words to your people.

“Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms. Our God is a God who saves!
The Sovereign Lordrescues us from death. But God will smash the heads of his enemies, crushing the skulls of those who love their guilty ways. The Lord says, “I will bring my enemies down from Bashan;
I will bring them up from the depths of the sea.You, my people, will wash your feet in their blood, and even your dogs will get their share!”

Oh gracious LORD, you assure us that we are more than conquerors through the lover of our souls, Christ Jesus; He has given the Saints authority to trample upon all the powers of the enemy and promised that no harm will come to us. We are raised up and seated in heavenly places with God in Christ Jesus, exalted as he is, for through him we “are a chosen people…royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession.” As a result, we can show others the goodness of God, for he called us “out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”

People of God, the children in His quiver, do not fear for
Jehovah is
Gibbor, the Mighty Man of War,
Nissi, the LORD my Banner (Standard & Standard-bearer) and
Sabaoth, the LORD of the Hosts of warring Angels.

The anointed warrior king is our Christ, the rider on the white horse “named Faithful and True for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war” and “subdues kings before him, he turns them to dust with his sword to windblown chaff with his bow, he pursues them and moves on unscathed” to bring down the might of more kings and takes lands in cyclical splendor.

In victorious declaration, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords daily raises his banner and pierces his scepter of righteousness on fallow ground and decrees as the loud voices in heaven “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”
