Prepare for the Fight!

The roaring of the lions grows louder.  The enemy’s emboldened by the fear and confusion he’s been able to stir up around the globe – including within the very camp of God.  With this accomplishment, His focus is now shifting towards his real target.

The Saints of God are the target of Satan.  The goal of the devil is to muzzle and shut down the Church! 

God recently reminded me of the Israelites when they and the Philistines were encamped against each other.  The Philistines sent their champion, Goliath, out daily to challenge and defy the armies of Israel.  Because of his stature and armor, all the army of Israel from King Saul down were “dismayed and greatly afraid.”

This is happening again within the camp of God, as many are greatly afraid.  But just as God prepared David to face the giant, so is He preparing His Remnant to do the same.  David spent many hours alone with God as he tended his sheep.  It was during this time the Lord prepared David in advance for what he would be called upon to do.  David was strengthened and made secure by faith in the Lord his God.  When the time came to fight, he boldly proclaimed to King Saul, “The LORD will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine!”

Saints, the Lord instructed us back in April (see ‘The Lions Are Roaring’) saying, “Gird Yourself!”  To gird means: encircle, surround, or to secure.  God’s given much instruction as to how we are to gird ourselves, calling upon His people to come into His spiritual Ark (see below). 

We only have a short window to prepare for the days ahead.  We are ALL called to fight the good fight of faith, and each will face “Goliath” at some point. 

When placed within the Body of Christ, we have a particular function, and are given specific assignments.  The only way to know your role and receive individual step-by-step instructions is to seek God!  You cannot receive this from any other source.

‘Fast and Pray’ was given in April, 2019, and is for NOW!  This is a portion of what was shown:

Oh God, help us press to levels beyond our physical strength, to swim through the horrible flaming fires. May we see the grandeur and possibilities that lie just a step further in prayer and fasting.

The Spirit is calling the Church to die to earthly inclinations and human desires.  She’s being called to swim into deep waters, the place where victory awaits.

This is the power of the Spirit, the power every believer must have!  This is the resurrection to be experienced before the Lord comes, where impartation and strength flow.”   (End of Word)

Brethren, now’s the time to draw near to the Lord and seek Him in prayer and fasting as never before.  Allow Him to gird you with strength for this battle.  Be “patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.”  We must be resolute, firm, and unwavering!

Cry to the Lord, Saints!  When His people cry out, it moves God – without fail.  Those who know their God will cry out to Him, and He’ll move heaven and earth to come to their rescue!  If you want to be greatly encouraged, do a study of how often crying out to the Lord is mentioned in scripture, and notice God’s response.

As we know, judgment begins with the house of God, and He’s telling us to prepare – “Gird Yourself!”

I believe after a time of intensive prayer and fasting “Goliath” will come against the saints (just as the tempter came against Jesus).  No matter the form in which he comes, our test will be: Will we stand in faith, clothed in the armor of God? Will we know our identity in Christ Jesus and the victory He’s already won for us? Or will we draw back in fear and trembling?

This period shortly precedes the Remnant being imbued with power from on High.  They will then be sent forth into the camp of the enemy, setting many captives free!

Please pray over this message.  Saints, it’s time to lay down every weight and run this race with all your might!  May God bless every one of you!

Diana, you wrote: “Cry to the Lord, Saints! When His people cry out, it moves God – without fail. Those who know their God will cry out to Him, and He’ll move heaven and earth to come to their rescue!” Years ago a group of us co-workers went out for lunch to a local restaurant.  After being seated one of the young men in our group noticed his mother eating across the room with her co-workers.  Joking around, the other young women and I each called out, “Hi, Mom!” with no response.  As soon as her son called “Hi, Mom!” her head whipped around, searching… Read more »

This sounds much like when the Lord tested the army of Gideon. Those who were fearful were the first told to go home, they were not ready for the battle. I believe the remnant of 300 that were left with Gideon represent the Bride who will be chosen to advance in this battle.

Hello Diana, a lot has changed since Herbert W Armstrong, but you bring the signs of the times back in focus. I can’t say that I’m ready, but we know it has to come to pass. Thank you for the wake up call. Take care and peace be with you.

I’m right with you. I don’t think any of us can say we’re ready. What keeps coming to me is a question God asked me several years ago, “Are You Ready?” After stumbling around, I finally blurted out, “Lord, I don’t know if I’m ready, but I believe if I’m not, You’ll get me ready!”
Blessings to you!

Yes Diana – You have said it clearly and it needs repeating for sure. We have been given authority to spiritually place the enemy under our feet. If our fear barometer is high then our faith level is too low and that comes by the Word. We must be in the Word daily and not get trapped in the fear mongering of the news. Here is a good vision from Dimitru Duduman given many years ago when he was in America from Romania:

I’ve been listening to Kevin Zadai as he experienced a 5 hour visit with the Lord in May (he will be on It’s Supernatural soon with details) and he said we will have lockdown again around Sept thru Dec BUT there will be house churches and angel visitations and visits to the Council of God! It IS time for prayer and fasting and not much time left for even that! Thank you for posting!
