Do Not Retreat, Pray Through to Breakthrough – Forward, Forward, Forward, the Lord Says

forward forward forward

God is good, and He made His will known regarding a great many things in His Word. In that goodness, He also included many promises to us, His children. And many of them are conditional requiring believing and praying and not giving up.

The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me about spiritual battles, and the need for fervent, persistent, consistent, effectual prayer in order to win battles for the answers to our prayers to manifest. Every battle is not this tough, but many are.

effectualproducing or able to produce a desired effect.

God tells us we are to pray prayers in such a manner, fervently, persistently, consistently, and full of His Word (life), SO THAT, they produce the desired effect. This is not commanding God in any way. This is taking Him for His Word and believing it can’t return to Him void as He promises. Believing that His Word is also a weapon to defeat the enemy because He says so. Praise God that we can look to His Word and find His will and pray, ask God, and speak His Word – a weapon – to situations to see victory and breakthrough.

Yesterday, the Lord was showing me how giving up on praying through all the way to breakthrough can be like retreating from the enemy, standing still and doing nothing while the enemy pummels us, even forfeiting the “land” previously won in the spirit realm through our many prayers. Thus, just handing over ground we had occupied. God wants us to take back ALL the land that is ours, that was stolen, not just a portion, as any remaining portion we allow him to keep is enough to bring much trouble and sorrow.

What happens with ceasing in prayer instead of praying without ceasing is in our standing still, the enemy beats us back, back, back from the battle line and just railroads us, wears us out until we give up altogether, and believe the thief’s slithering lie, “Sssss..It must not be God’s will…ssssssss.” Now, I am not magnifying the devil here, I am simply saying, we can give up praying too soon and forfeit to that snake in certain battles meant for us to win.

How can God’s very will and promises from His Word NOT be His will?

They can’t. So we pray and don’t give up.

The Lord said to me, “Do not retreat,” I knew by the Spirit that meant, do not stop praying and speaking my Word about it and to it, “Pray through to breakthrough. Forward, forward, forward.” Forward here meaning, “Praying without ceasing, fervently, effectually, sometimes aggressively, speaking His Word, the most powerful weapon, pushing the enemy back, back, back, until we win and take back ALL the land that was stolen.”

recover ALL

“And nothing of theirs was lacking, either small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything which they had taken from them; David recovered ALL,” (1 Samuel 30:13).

I could see that prayer was like attacking the enemy – boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom – tearing down strongholds, flattening hindrances and obstacles or empowering us to leap over them, reclaiming land from the enemy until it is ALL ours again. No mercy for the enemy. We pray, we praise, and God fights the battles for us, yes, but we MUST pray. And pray what He says – asking and speaking according to His Word and will.

Forward, forward, forward only. Do not slack in prayer. The Word says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force,” (Matthew 11:12).

Prayer can be violent and must be because we are fighting a wicked enemy who seeks only our demise.

I strongly encourage you to read the book of Joshua as a picture of the will and promises of God which are ours, but that we must battle in prayer oftentimes – CONTINUALLY pushing forward – and stay in faith in order to receive (win).

God said to Joshua and the children of Israel (so God’s will): The land is yours.

But the land He said was theirs was occupied with many enemies. Translation. They had to possess the land (the very will of God) for themselves knowing they’d also defeat their enemies if they trusted in God and took Him for His Word and will.

So must we must possess the land through prayer believing and not doubting, in faith. Actively, not passively. Read Luke 18 about the persistent widow about another example of possessing the Word for ourselves until we see.

Jesus won the war and gave us His Word – God won. So we too can win our battles, but we can lose some battles by forfeiting, by giving up before we see His Word come to pass, and blame God for unanswered prayers when it is that we gave up, maybe rejected His Word/will for ourselves through unbelief before we broke through and fully retook ALL the land the enemy stole, etc. Thus allowing him to occupy it, wreaking havoc like sickness and disease, relationship problems, etc.

Forward, forward, forward until breakthrough.

Thank You, Lord, for Your faithfulness to teach us in all manners of circumstances. Thank You for showing me this to share because You WANT us to be VICTORIOUS in every battle and have equipped us to win by winning for us 2000 years ago. It is finished. We receive by faith, through believing prayer what You already won FOR us. Hallelujah! All glory and honor and praise to You alone.

Prophetic Word: Who told you sickness was bigger than I AM?

Prophetic Word: “Who told you sickness was bigger than I AM?”

It’s time for God’s people to stop magnifying sickness above God, His Word, and the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Watch and listen to the video to pray and make this prophetic declaration with me to and over the body of Christ.

Prophetic Word: Ruins Being Rebuilt (Prophesy to the Ruins in Your Life)

Isaiah 61:4 – “And they shall rebuild the old RUINS, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.”

Isaiah 58:12 – “Your people will rebuild the ancient RUINS and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”

Amos 9:13-15, “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel: “They’ll rebuild their ruined cities. They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine. They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables. And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land. They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.” God, your God, says so.”

John 16:24, “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”

The Time is Now. Be Set Apart. Give Place to the devil NO MORE

THE TIME IS NOW. BE SET APART

You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, 8 but you shall hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have done to this day.

JOSHUA 23:7-8

The Lord is doing a sanctifying, setting apart work in His people. What I have been hearing in my spirit for some time now for His people is:

Don’t give place to the devil [Ephesians 4:27].

And more recently: The Time is Now. Be Set Apart. Give Place to the devil NO MORE.

In order to be all He’s called YOU and I to be, we must live a set apart with God life. It’s clear in His Word that His children can “know better” and continue to give place to the devil. And it makes sense that if we are choosing, by our own free will, to give place to the devil, that we will also be hindered from fully accomplishing all He desires for us.

Are any of us perfect? No. Will His people still sin? Yes. But the more we abide in Him and rely on Him and His power, the less and less we will. The more sensitive we will be to His Holy Spirit and the sooner we will sense and know His conviction BEFORE we sin and can then choose to avoid it. This is not about living in fear of sinning because if we sin, we have an Advocate Jesus Christ who’s covered all our sins [Galatians 3:13–15] – past, present, and future – but that we can again “know better” and sin anyway and give the enemy permission to railroad every area of our lives. BUT, we don’t HAVE to. That’s the difference.

With His help, it is possible to live a sanctified, set apart holy life. Otherwise, He wouldn’t tell us to be holy as He is Holy [1 Peter 1:15-17] if we couldn’t (by the power of the Holy Spirit and abiding in His Word).

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” (James 4:7).

There was a period of time in my walk with the Lord where I thought I was really walking with the Lord much closer than I actually was, but looking back I see many areas of compromise and where I gave place to the devil in my life to wreak havoc. Mainly with my TV entertainment choices. It goes to show us how any of God’s children can be deceived. Even recently regarding some PG-13 movies and TV shows, the Lord told me they are not for His people, that they give place to the devil, and He said they are not for me. Yes, there’s barely anything left for me to watch TV and movie wise because most of it has been hijacked by the devil, but Jesus is my first love, and I choose Him and all He’s called me to over them.

Above in Joshua 23:7-8, the Lord says, “make not mention” of the names of their gods. Well, “their gods” may not have the same names as the ones in Joshua’s time but they have new names like much of what Hollywood is being inspired by satan to indoctrinate the world with to bring deception and confusion even to the people of God. To get us to question God and say as that snake did to Adam and Eve, “Did God really say?” By watching sin-filled entertainment that directly contradicts His Word, we are more than making mention of the gods of the world, we are partaking of them and promoting them with our money and view counts.

Not under condemnation but through His loving conviction by Him wanting me to walk in victory in all areas of my life, He’s teaching teaching me of His ways in this. We can’t have victory if we are giving a place (or places) to the thief in our lives.

The time is now. Because the time is short, and God wants to use YOU in a mighty way that will allow His anointing to flow unhindered. Give place to the devil NO MORE.

There are so many souls at stake. There are so many people sick, suffering, and captive to satan that need setting free. Don’t ally or align yourself with the enemy in any way, shape, or form any longer. Make a choice to serve Him and Him alone from this day forward. Be willing to lose friends, all of them even, if it means following Jesus this way – with all your heart, mind, body, soul, and strength.

Again, not desiring to walk this way with the Lord out of “walking on eggshells” with God but because I don’t want to give place to the devil, and that I love Jesus and want Him to have first place in every area of my life. Though I am in this world, I don’t want to be of this world. And we get to choose. I choose Jesus. Always. Every second of every day with His help. Emphasis with His help.

PRAYER 

Father, I want to walk in victory in all areas of my life and apart from You I can do nothing but THROUGH You I can do all things including living a sanctified, set apart, Holy life. I have eyes to see and ears to hear that the time is short. Our Lord Jesus could take us up at any time. It’s Your will that NONE would perish for eternity and You need fully surrendered sons and daughters who refuse to agree with the enemy and the ways of this word in ANY way to labor for the harvest and to minister to Your hurting and sick people. Holy Spirit I need you to live a set apart, not giving place to the devil life. Help me, Lord my God, every second of every day, I invite You to help me walk with You from glory to glory in Jesus’ name, amen.
