Strategy to Overcome the devices of the serpent.

 

 

We are in a very important time frame right at the beginning of a new year (5779) full of promises of new birthings, fulness and fruitfulness.

We need to be watchful and alert, for the enemy is sly and devious in his ways and will try to find openings in our hedge to creep in on areas where we are vulnerable (1 Peter 5:8) in order to steal kill and destroy, but also to distract.  Remember, this is the other side of the letter “Tet” in the picture of the twisted serpent in the number 9.

As we dwell in His Presence, we find our shelter and protection under the wings of the Most High where no devil can touch us (Psalm 91).

This is not a place where we can “in” and “out”, but a place to abide in continuously.

Let us ask the Lord to let His light shine on places where we are vulnerable so that we can take our stand in those areas. We are to be clothed in light to withstand the enemy, putting our trust in the Lord of hosts! He is our victory.

At the same time, we are praying for discernment to identify our enemy and not be caught by his deception.

Remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.

I recently woke up from in dream in which I clearly received insight into four strategies by which the Python Spirit will try to get a grip on you.

  1. Make contact by catching you by surprise – causing you to lose focus and balance.
  2. Charming, bewitching, luring you to come along with his plans – drawing on your emotions, playing on your feelings.
  3. Religious flattery with false authority.
  4. Putting subtle pressure on you to comply – even with a religious cloak – show of godliness – making a demand on your being a Christian to get his way.

Many are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of life, having too much on your plate, sudden intimidations of the enemy that cause fear, stress, etc.  His tactic is to attack on many fronts, causing pile-ups to make you feel as if the life is being sucked out of you.
This is clearly the attack of the Python spirit.

See with New Perspective from a Place of Worship: 
*Your true identity and your future which He has planned for you.
*Leave situations that need desperate intervention of the Lord into His hands – trusting Him fully to invade those areas like relationships with His glory.
* Discerning the enemy’s strategies by exercising your spiritual senses, taking authority over it.  Whenever you give in to pressure by reacting to it, you empower it to rule over you. 

I was worshiping the Lord in the beauty of Holiness and suddenly became so aware of His faithfulness to bring His promises to pass in your lives.
While focusing on His faithfulness, I suddenly realized that His Promises are actually His desires for our lives – which are so much better than our own ideas of how things should be.
We often want to figure out solutions for ourselves – taking
things into our own hands, but because that is opposite to
God’s counsel, it causes us to get stressed and overwhelmed.

Instead: Here are five keys to overcome:

  1. Focus back in worship on His FAITHFULNESS to

1. Bring His glorious promises to pass in our lives                                                                 2. Order our steps aright.                                                                                                                  3. To make the crooked places straight, bring the mountains down and fill    up the low places                                                                                                                                          4. To provide in all our needs                                                                                                            5. To bring us into the fulness of our inheritance in Christ                             SHORTLY TO BLESS US WITH EVERY GOOD THING!                                                That is who He is – only having the best in store for us.

  1. TRUST and DEPENDENCE!

Release your anxieties, fears, concerns, worries and put your TRUST in HIS FAITHFULNESS.

  1. NOW SING YOUR PRAISES in tongues and in your own language – OF ADORATION TO HIM BEING A LOVING FAITHFUL FATHER.

Praise Him for His mercy and lovingkindness that puts the enemy to flight! (2 Chron.20:22)
Psalm 149: With the high praises of God in your mouth and the two-edged sword in your hand you will bind the enemy’s kings with chains and his princes with iron fetters.

          D. EXPECT God’s goodness and grace to give you victory and blessings beyond your wildest imagination in every area of your life – because of His faithfulness!

E.  PUT ON THE ARMOR OF LIGHT and get your SWORD sharpened!

Ephesians 6:10-13 (KJV)
10” Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

In view of this Scripture, guard your heart to not start judging people or pointing the finger, or getting offended! Your fight is against the devil and his forces!  But rest assured, Jesus has already won the victory.  You just have to take authority over the enemy and not be moved by his schemes to invade your mind and shake you emotionally.

As we ask the Lord to protect us, He will show us the strategies of the enemy in advance – even in our dreams, so that we are forewarned and forearmed!

Bless the Name of the Lord who is mighty to save and protect!  Hallelujah!

Blessings of Victory and emotional freedom

POSITIONING FOR THE HEBRAIC YEAR 5779

As we are speeding forth to the Hebraic New Year 5779, starting on September 9th (09/09/2018) at sundown, there is a load of prophetic significance to be understood in order to tap into all the hidden treasures of God’s wisdom.

“And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do”

(I Chronicles 12:32).

From 2010 to 2019 (the year’s 5770 to 5779) is focused on the significance of the last two digits “70”.  All these ”70’s” through this decade signify the Hebrew word “AYIN.” 

   “Ayin” signifies an eye…or insight or seeing or perceiving with God’s perspective. It is a word for God’s revelation by the Spirit of wisdom and understanding to “see”. Some writers describe it as “fountain”…as in a fountain of wisdom.

We will also look into the symbolic meaning of the number 9 and the Hebrew Word Talet.

It is a most exciting time to tap into the way God sees. No wonder that the “seer”-anointing is increasing – especially in those that are seeking the Lord’s perspective.

In the process our minds have to be renewed from darkness to light – to focus on the Lord to have the mind of Christ by what He reveals in the secret place of intimacy.

 In the following 21 days until Rosh Hosanna (Hebraic New Year), we are going to focus on the renewal of our minds to access that which God has laid up for us in the realm of prophetic revelation.

You will be positioned and strengthened to:

  • Understand the significance of the Hebrew Year 5779 and to take action accordingly
  • Be renewed in the spirit of your mind by a new way of seeing from God’s perspective
  • See with enlightened eyes of understanding
  • Have all your senses extended into the supernatural
  • Get divine revelation, insight, wisdom and understanding to apply to every situation
  • Increase in Prophetic flow
  • Take authority over the enemy when you see the snake in the grass
  • Grow in the fruit of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Gifts of the Spirit
  • Grow in the Character of Christ – into maturity to reign with Him in the authority of the Spirit and the Word
  • Saying “Amen” to God’s destiny for your life as you receive understanding of it.

GOD IS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES!

I was having supper with a friend, praying inbetween for different things, when I heard in my spirit, “GOD IS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES!”

You are going to hear surprising reports about situations that you have been praying for, which seemed to stay unchanged, for God is working behind the scenes!

Test your heart for any wavering, doubt and unbelief and let it go! Repent and put your trust fully in the Lord, for He is working behind the scenes, doing a new thing!

ASK, CALL and CRY OUT to the Lord for His mighty hand to move in your situation and you shall marvel at His goodness and grace.

Watch this video and be encouraged, strengthened and empowered to believe against all hope!

Isaiah 43:16-19 King James Version (KJV)

16 Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God bless you with marvellous testimonies!

KNOWING YOUR IDENTITY AND TAKING UP YOUR AUTHORITY

As we have now entered a whole new dispensation in May 2018 where great breakthrough and acceleration is at the order of the day, we also need to be very watchful for the strategies of the enemy to come with sudden, unexpected blows to knock you down, so that you lose sight of who you are and what your purpose is.

 

Remember, 1 Jn. 4:4 says, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

Do not identify with your latest battle, taking the bait to receive the accusations of the enemy, which are always designed to make you doubt your worth in the Kingdom, causing you to be stripped of your identity and thereby forfeiting your authority in Christ.

Remember the course of negative thinking. It spills over into the emotions, then into your attitude, behavior and utterance.  From there it puts stress on the adrenal gland, which releases toxins into the body and the result is bodily ailments, which usually starts in the digestive track.

If you have been reeling under the attack of Jezebel and the Religious Spirit, come back under the shelter of the Most High in worship and let the Holy Spirit comfort you as you just bask in His Presence, being soaked in the glory. Let the forgiveness of Jesus flow where necessary, repent of your own negative reactions and let Him heal your heart, your cellular memory, the adrenal gland and your body (if needed).
Our identity is in Christ and in Him we are more tan conquerors!  Hallelujah!
Now take up your authority, bind the demonic spirits that have attached themselves to your negative experiences and cast them out in Jesus’ Name!

Luke 10:19KJV)

 Behold, 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.”
As you pray in tongues, listen in to receive the Word of the Lord and start declaring it over your circumstances, your future and your destiny.  Get your vision and purpose back, set your face like a flint (releasing the past) and press in to your destiny.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  Phil.3:13-14

 

 

Positioning Yourself for Passover 2018

I sense that the Holy Spirit is calling the Bride to take time out in preparation for the Passover Celebration 2018.

 Come and sit at His feet, absorbing His full provision through the blood. Behold the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world and allow the Holy Spirit to imprint this glory into your spirit to be transformed by it.

 

 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

 Let Him wash you with the precious blood of Jesus – washing your heart, your emotions and mind – cleansing your soul and healing your wounds as you repent of the sin of negative mindsets, attitudes, words and actions.  Forgive everyone who has hurt you. Release them and bless them with all of God’s goodness and grace. 

 Let go of stress and worry, fears and negative expectations.  Give it to the Lord in exchange for His peace and rest.  Then set your heart to thanksgiving, praise and worship.

Come into His refreshing by the Holy Spirit so that you are positioned to behold Him afresh in His passion for the whole world as He paid the utmost penalty for our sin to bring us into the liberty of the abundant resurrection life of the Spirit to become like Him, establishing His Kingdom on the earth.

 Also bring your best offering to the Lord, honoring Passover and what He has has done for us.  In giving to Him at this special celebration of the Passover feast and the victory which He wrought for us on the cross, there is an activation of tremendous blessings to be released over our lives. 

 PRAYER:  Father God, I come into Your holy presence by the blood of the Lamb that was slain for me.  Take me into a deeper revelation of the power of the blood and the inheritance I have received in Christ Jesus through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit. 

May you enjoy a glorious Passover Celebration with fresh revelation of the power of the Blood of Jesus and a fresh empowering to live the abundant life in Christ! 

In His Grace

Power over Snakes and Scorpions…

God speaks in parables and gives you understanding line upon line.  

After the FB video I shared, revelation has started to unfold and I sense this is a very “Now” word for the body of Christ:

The situation in the natural was that I was sitting on an enclosed porch, eating my breakfast.  When I got up to go into the house I noticed a movement from the corner of my eye and lo and behold a snake was laying on a reed screen next to where I was sitting, with its head poised, looking straight at me, tongue wiggling.

 

Needless to say I was caught by surprise and shocked since it was an enclosed porch and I didn’t notice it when I was sitting there.

My first reaction was to open the porch door and to close the glass sliding door to the living room.  At first I was contemplating whether I should just let it go, hoping that it would go outside through the open door of the porch.  

At this point the scripture came up in my spirit, 

“Behold, 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 10:19

This changed my mindset and my whole approach as I received the Sword of the Spirit.  I knew I had to kill the snake and crush the head, although I was still apprehensive (remembering Paul who was bitten in his hand), but then reminded that he shook it off and it did not harm him! 

 

I looked for something to kill it with and found a stainless steel spatula that is used for a barbecue.  It had a serrated edge on the one side and a sharp edge at the bottom. 

Now I was after the snake, my heart pounding. But I knew I had to go after it. At first I was chopping it with the front end, but made no impact on it.  It was moving towards the outside door or the porch and again, for a moment, I thought to let it go, but suddenly I realized that it was a prophetic act and as the anointing came on me, all fear left.  

Another Scripture came up,

Psalm 18:36-38(NKJV)

…You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped. I pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed. I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; They fell under my feet.” 

I cleft the head of the snake in two and had a sense of tremendous triumph in the spirit.  

About two weeks before, we also found a snake on the same porch and let it go because it was a black Florida snake, which is not poisonous.  We found the small openings on either side of the porch which was the only way in which it could enter, BUT I didn’t close it off!  Guess what!?  God was loudly speaking to me!

PROPHETIC INTERPRETATION:

When pondering upon the prophetic significance I sensed that God was demonstrating a warning and at the same time an empowering through His Word.

Several points stood out:

1)  I was caught by surprise and shocked by the fact that it was so close to me and I didn’t see it.

Message:  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet.5:8 KJV).

Remember, the enemy loves the surprise element, but forewarned is forearmed.  We have nothing to fear, for Christ has already wrought the victory for us!

Be clothed in the armor of light (Rom.13:12), which is the same as described in Eph.6:10-18 and stay under the shelter of the Almighty in the secret place of His Presence (Ps.91).

2)   I was intimidated with fear and contemplated to let it go. (This snake was not black, but brown with stripes and a yellow belly – about 3-4 ft long and I realized it could be poisonous, which was confirmed later).

The Word of the Lord came up in my spirit and gave me strength. 

Message:  We can never give in to fear, but have to draw on the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to overcome, trusting the Lord for protection while being armed with the Sword of the Spirit!  And do not think or hope the devil is just going to go away.  He is looking for entry into your house!

3)  We can never give up halfway, but have to pursue our enemy until his head is crushed.

Message: Pursue the devil till there is nothing left of him. Do not have mercy on the devil, but have mercy on the person hosting him.

4)  I had a warning, but didn’t close the openings.

Friends, I sense that the Lord is warning us to be on full alert for the enemy is sneaky and subtle.  He will come in through any opening in our hedges.  

Let us ask the Lord to show us anything in our lives that can give the enemy an entry way.  Then deal with it!  Do not postpone or neglect this instruction.  

Repent of every sinful thought, word and action that you know of.  

If the Holy Spirit shows you anything, repent of it, forgive everybody in the situation, test your heart for wrong thoughts and attitudes, bless your enemies and make sure your conscience is clear. 

Take communion on a regular basis and plead the blood of Jesus over you and your household and everything in your territory.

SING A NEW SONG OF VICTORY

In my quiet time with the Lord this morning I became so aware of the fact that He is listening for the sound that we carry.  Is it a sound that glorifies Him?  Is it praise and worship and adoration for who He is, or is it self-centered?  Let our focus shift back to His glory and our tongue rejoice in His goodness and grace!  He always leads us in triumph! (2 Cor.2:14)

Let those new songs come forth out of your spirit, glorifying the Lord for His magnificence!  And let Him sing over you with rejoicing! (Zeph.3:17)

“Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.” (1 Tim.1:5 KJV)

THE SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL

This is one of the “snakes” that we have to be watchful for, since it is very sneaky and devious.  It is a seducing, deceiving spirit that brings confusion and is out to destroy our destiny.  

The Jezebel spirit is targeting leaders and expecially prophets, creeping into businesses and ministries to usurp authority.  Sometimes we get ensnared by this spirit without realizing it and it is wise to get fully acquainted with all its strategies. 

You can step into your God-given authority in Christ to overcome this spirit so that you can be freed up to fulfill your destiny in Christ, living a life of victory and blessing!

We have great news for you:   We are ready to launch a FREE ONLINE COURSE with PDF teachings, video’s and Power Point presentations to equip you with the knowledge of Jezebel’s “workings”.  

The course contains powerful prayers for deliverance and you can also interchange experiences, thoughts and questions in the comments.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR MARCH 17, 2017

 

 

I am very excited about what God has in store for us, starting in March 2017 and, while praying into it, the Lord has quickened it to my heart to share the keys we need to access the promises for our destiny through prophetic release, staking our claims in the spirit.

Many times we miss our opportunties, simply because we do not know how to tap into God’s purposes for our lives.

Just like Abram, creating an Ishmael through trying to “help” God, we can get impatient and cause the arm of the flesh to work against us, causing us unnecessary pain and problems.

Doubt, fear and unbelief can also cause great obstacles on our path and prevent us from entering into our Promised Land.

Seeing that there is so much promised for March 2017, we want to encourage you to watch this webinar to get positioned for God’s greater glory.

God has recently given me a very vivid dream regarding the number 17 and how it relates to March 17, 2017 – signifying double blessings of victorious breakthrough that will start manifesting.

In another dream I woke up with Romans 4:17 (note the number 17 again!):

Romans 4:17:  As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” — He is our father in the presence of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not yet exist. 18Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.”…

 

While I am writing, I hear the Lord saying, “A Turnaround is coming, where impossible-looking circumstances are going to TURN AROUND as God’s glory is poured out!”  This is so EXCITING!    BELIEVE, EXPECT and CALL FORTH those things that are not just as though it were!

 

To get tuned in we want to recommend you listening to the short, POWERFUL prophetic Word released regarding March 17th.

“Will you ROAR with Me?”

During worship I received this vision-Word on February 15th (Elsabe Briers-Bakkes)

As I was worshiping, I saw a blinding light coming to me from the right, but I couldn’t distinguish any form until it stopped before me and the Lord emerged as the roaring Lion, asking me, “Will you roar with Me?”
It was a compelling invitation to me, but I sensed that it was also for His bride. I realized that this was a very weighty invitation, not to be taken lightly, with the fear of the Lord all over me. I broke up, weeping, saying, “Yes, Lord!” and started worshiping Him in the glory as the One who Reigns and rules – my Lord and King – undone in His Presence. It was a stepping-in to a higher release of authority with the ruling Sword on the King’s orders.
Then I saw myself in bridal attire, but it was as if I was representing the company of the bride of Christ, hand-in hand with Him, taking her up to higher places in Zion and Him conveying to her that out of this deeper intimacy He wants the heart of His bride to be so joined to His that she can express His heart, His thoughts, receiving His glorious shifting Word in the spirit to ROAR His prophetic decrees into the areas He shows her where the enemy has invaded and wants to invade. It was not only for her own needs, but especially for the nations. (Ps.2).
I knew He was summoning the warrior bride to use His flaming sword to destroy the frequencies of the enemy over circumstances and over the nations (Ps.2) through prophetic decrees empowered by His roar in ruling authority, setting things in order and shifting that which is out of sync with His will into alignment. (Ps.149)

While sharing this with someone over the phone, the anointing came upon me and I heard the Word, “Let the roar of the Lion of Judah arise in Africa”. Let us declare this in unity as His warrior-bride!

LIVING THE VICTORIOUS LIFE!

LIVING A LIFE OF VICTORY – ALWAYS!

I heard in the Spirit:  IT IS TIME!  – to be properly equipped and armed (with the Sword of the Spirit) to maintain your VICTORY in all circumstances!

 

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour’ (1 PET.5:8)

The Hebraic Year 5777 started in October and is marked by the Sword of the Lord, which spells victory (Nr 17), going into the Gregorian year 2017.

I have been made very aware that there will be confrontations by the enemy of our souls who comes “as” a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. That is why there is much emphasis on the Sword!     We have to have our swords sharpened and polished and on the ready (speaking of being saturated with the Word of the Lord) as our daily bread that we feed on – our sustenance, as well as our empowerment by the Spirit to wage war and not lose ground, but enforce the Kingdom!

IT IS TIME! – to know your proper IDENTITY to arise in AUTHORITY against all opposition of the enemy, taking DOMINION to rule and reign with Christ in VICTORIOUS LIVING! He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and He reigns!

JOIN US for the LIVE GLOBAL WEBINAR SERIES, “LIVING A LIFESTYLE OF VICTORY – ALWAYS!”  to receive key strategies in order to OVERCOME all the wiles of the enemy.

Blessing you with VICTORIOUS LIVING – ALWAYS!

LEAPING ON THE SOUND OF PRAISE DECREES – ONTO HIGHER GROUND BY THE EMPOWERING OF THE SPIRIT.

 

LEAPING ON THE SOUND OF PRAISE DECREES – ONTO HIGHER GROUND BY THE EMPOWERING OF THE SPIRIT.

As I was pondering 2017, I had the impression of people standing on a high mountain top (being able to see far into the distance), facing a deep ravine, separating them from an even higher mountain top. One by one the people started raising their voices like trumpets, releasing sound that reverberated over the surrounding mountain tops. Then some of them started leaping over the ravine, as if carried on the sound of praise, landing on on a higher elevation in an atmosphere of great victory. The number 17 signifies victory!
I sensed that the trumpeting sounds were faith decrees that were made according to the prophetic promises of God over their lives. The interesting part was that they were “praise-decrees” that had the power to catapult them over the seemingly insurpassable ravine onto even higher ground than before.

It is also significant that they were already standing on a high mountain top, signifying that they were people of worship, pursuing and enjoying God’s presence. For those there is the encouragement that even higher experiences in the glory await them – what the eye hasn’t seen, the ear hasn’t heard and nobody could even imagine!

FRAMING 2017 WITH THE WORD OF GOD
OVER YOUR LIFE!
I want to encourage each of you to take hold of God’s Word over your life as you cross over into 2017 with fresh vision and hope, declaring it boldly in full assurance of faith, expecting the manifestation of His promises in great victory and embracing the “New thing” that is springing forth even now as you frame your world with God’s Word.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:3 KJV

Isaiah 55:11King James Version (KJV)
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Blessing each of you with God’s goodness and grace for 2017!
