The evening of March 16, 2017, the Lord gave me a vision and word that’s been heavy on my heart. I knew immediately it was for the entire Body of Christ, but I wanted to be careful to wait upon the Lord for the entire message.
Since being given the mandate from the Lord a few weeks ago to, “Call My people in. Call in the sick, the maimed, and the broken. Stretch forth your hands to heal, to restore, to make whole” (see ‘The Rescue Mission’), I’ve taken it to heart. Not only do I seek guidance from the Holy Spirit on a daily basis as to what part of my Body, the Body of Christ, I’m to pray over, but the prayer group I belong to now begins by asking the same thing.
This particular evening, after asking the Lord for utterance to pray His will, we began praying over the Body of Christ. It began with local members and situations, quickly expanding worldwide. As I was praying in the Spirit, I was given the following vision/word:
I saw a large group of children gathered together in a seemingly carefree, relaxed environment, with lots of smiling faces. They were all age groups, from toddlers to teens. Suddenly, I heard the Lord say,
“Pray for the children!”
As soon as I heard the command, I spoke it out loud to the group. Immediately, we all shifted our prayers toward the children. The vision began again, exactly where it left off. But this time, as I watched, a large dark cloud formed and began coming rapidly towards the children. As it got to them, it began to spread out and around, encircling them. Just then, the Lord said loudly,
“The enemy wants your children!”
“He is coming for the children!”
When the Lord said, “He’s coming for the children,” I instantly understood it to be a multi-pronged attack. I saw terrorists attacking places where children are gathered. I also saw attacks taking place right under our noses, as children left alone by parents and caregivers, entertained themselves in front of computer screens; the enemy, molding and shaping their minds through images, thoughts, and emotions. Many scenes flooded my spirit and I felt an extreme sense of urgency.
We all began praying fervently for the youth in the Church, binding the hand of the enemy in his schemes against our body – the Body of Christ on the earth, and loosed angels to go forth and stand guard over our children. The Holy Spirit reminded us of the promises of God regarding our children, which we boldly proclaimed, standing our ground on these verses.
Although the Holy Spirit brought several verses to me as we were fighting the good fight of faith for our children, the following two spoke volumes to my spirit:
Isaiah 54:13-17, “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children…no weapon formed against you shall prosper…*THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD.”
Psalms 127:3-5, “Children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. *Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children…”
The word “heritage” means reward, allotment,or inheritance. Children are a reward, our inheritance from the Lord our God! The Bible is full of God’s promises concerning the children of His servants.
Satan knows these scriptures, and is working feverishly to nullify the promises of God to His servants. He believes if he can kill and destroy our seed, he’ll prove God’s Word cannot be trusted.
The next morning, the Lord showed me that many in the Body of Christ haven’t shut and locked the doors. Many doors are standing wide open, providing Satan free access to these precious gifts from God.
Saints, please pray over this word. Ask the Lord to show you how to shut the door to Satan in the lives of your children. Do your part and diligently teach your children the ways of Jesus. Then understand, whether they’re still under your roof, or grown with families of their own, we have Blood bought rights as parents and grandparents. We have promises of protection from the Lord our God concerning our precious seed.
I want to make something very clear. God has not given this word to scare, but to warn, His people. The Lord is showing us what the enemy is planning – and why. The Lord is also telling us what to do to thwart this evil plan against our families.
Satan wants the children, and yes he’s coming for them. BUT HE CAN’T HAVE MINE! I plead the Blood of Jesus over my seed, and I’m standing on the very Word of the Living God concerning my descendants! Armor up, Saints! Draw your swords and stand your ground!
