This is what the Father is saying today.
I hear the breathing of the army of the Lord, exactly the same as their Commander. They’re so much in tune with Him and what He is thinking that He doesn’t need to say anything. Just by them looking at Him, they know how to move forward and fight the good fight of faith.
Their focus is only on Him. They’re not even worried by the war raging around them because they know when to move and when to act.
What a beautiful sight! As far as eye can see, there is warriors dressed in the full armour. All according to their own positions, they are called into the battle of the last days.
They are not intimidated by each other. They know who they are in Christ Jesus! Each armor piece was just made for them and the function they carried out in the war.
As the sound comes forward from their mouths echoing through the air a creed for war could be heard a far off, the enemy of their souls was pushed back!
This beautiful warrior army is the Bride of Christ, cunning as a snake yet gentle as a dove.
They followed only the instructions from the Lord!
They know His voice!
They aren’t threatened by the assaults of the enemy, because they know The Lord Jesus overcome all this on the CROSS OF CALVARY!
The Lord has called forth His Bride, as terrible as an army with banners. His banner over us is LOVE. He has spoken to His prophets to speak life and hope into their dry bones. They shall arise as an exceedingly great army.
Song of Solomon 2:4 “He has brought me to his banqueting place, And his banner over me is love waving overhead to protect and comfort me.
Song of Solomon 6:10 ‘Who is this that looks down like the dawn, Fair and beautiful as the full moon, Clear and pure as the sun, As majestic as an army with banners?’
Ezekiel 37:7-14 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a thundering noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on the bones, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”’” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood up on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is lost. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will open your graves and make you come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you back home to the land of Israel. Then you will know with confidence that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves and made you come up out of your graves, My people. I will put My Spirit in you and you will come to life, and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and fulfilled it,” says the Lord.’”
Hebrews 6:17-20 In the same way God, in His desire to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable nature of His purpose, intervened and guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things His promise and His oath in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to Him for refuge would have strong encouragement and indwelling strength to hold tightly to the hope set before us. This hope this confident assurance we have as an anchor of the soul it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells, where Jesus has entered in advance as a forerunner for us, having become a High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.*emphasis added
