“You Will Take the Land”

walls

On October 21st, I was awakened at 2:00 am by the following words: “You will take the land.” I was hearing it repeated over and over.  Then, as I fully awakened, I heard it spoken loudly and very distinctly, “YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”

I initially took it as the Lord giving a general Word over His people – like words of affirmation over us as to what we’ll be doing in the not-too-distant future.  So I got up from bed saying, “Yes, Lord.  I receive that. We will indeed take the land.” Then I went into my office to pray over what I’d heard.

As I began praying, I realized what I’d heard was not just an encouragement from the Lord;  It was a COMMAND from the Lord!   This was staggering to me, because I’d been studying spiritual warfare for some time.  And I understood enough to know you don’t enter into a spiritual battle outside your “territory” without clear direction from the Lord.  But at the same time, I’ve recently been feeling a call to fight in the heavenlies.  Not knowing anything more than that, I’d told the Lord I’d do whatever He wanted, because I trusted Him to prepare and show me whatever I needed to know.

Before proceeding, I want to be very clear about something.  I felt totally out of my league and over my head.  I’m not a seasoned warrior by any stretch of the imagination, and I’m sure the powers of darkness were laughing their heads off – but they didn’t laugh for long.  What the Lord did next wiped the smiles right off their faces:

After study and prayer, I decided to skim through a few news headlines.  I saw a headline about the Hillary/Trump debate.  I have to make this disclaimer:  I kept getting repulsed and couldn’t watch the entire debate.  I’m only repeating what a news commentator wrote, as I didn’t hear this for myself.   The individual was talking about how Hillary’s stance on abortion was laid out on the table for all to see, that she’s A-Okay with late term, partial birth abortion, with no limits.  Although she accused Trump of using scare tactics, she didn’t deny his claim that she was okay with it all the way up to just days before the baby’s due date.

After reading that statement, I began to sob uncontrollably for all the babies being savagely murdered, as well as the mothers and medical staff involved in this evil.  As I was crying, I saw an image of a full term baby hanging out of the mother, feet first, with only the head not delivered as yet.  A doctor had his tools ready to sever the spinal cord at the back of the neck!

At that moment, the Spirit of God came upon me mightily, like a burning fire.  I rose to my feet and began taking authority in the Name of Jesus over all the abortions planned to be performed that day in my state of Oklahoma.  I bound the devil and his angels, literally throwing my hand up to hold them back – feeling the pressure pushing back against my hand!  Then I loosed angels and laborers to go forth to these women, to minister to them, to show them the Love of God, that there is another way, that God will be with them and see them though.

Suddenly, I began to feel great joy and went into a time of praising God for all the lives He’d saved, and souls won for the Kingdom!  I was totally in awe of what had just happened.  A wave of relief spread through me as I realized what the Lord had just revealed.

I have to admit, my natural man had been intimidated and fearful at the thought of spiritual warfare.  That’s because my eyes were looking at me.  Unless you’re completely focused towards the Lord, you should be afraid – and never attempt going into enemy territory on your own.  But the Lord showed me, if I follow the promptings and lead of the Holy Spirit, giving Him my feet, my hands, and my mouth, He’ll do the fighting!  I was so thrilled at what the Lord had just done and shown me, I could hardly contain myself!

Realizing it was getting late, I got up to go get ready for work; but sensing the Lord had more to show, I just stood still for a moment.

Then I saw in the spirit what looked like a walled city, and immediately knew it was Jericho!  All of a sudden, a great and mighty shaking began, and the walls began to vibrate and crumble to the ground.  Then I heard the Lord say, “YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”

I was reminded that Israel was called the “church in the wilderness” (Acts 7:38).  The same principles that applied to them when taking enemy territory apply to the Church today!

In the sixth chapter of Joshua, verses 1-27, the Lord gave Joshua very detailed instructions on what the Israelites were to do in preparation of taking the land of Jericho.  He told them in advance He was giving Jericho into their hand. Everyone was given an assignment; from the priests, the musicians, and the armed warriors, to the general camp of the Israelites; everyone had a part to play.

A key verse was brought to my attention.  In those instructions God gave to Joshua, He said, “…then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”

The Lord says, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven…that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.”  “Hebrews 12: 26-27)

Saints, the Lord is bringing a shaking to this earth. The great and mighty fortresses will soon crumble to the ground.  This will be the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes!  When we see the collapse, the army of the Lord, the Saints of the Most High, will go up.  And the Lord is saying, “YOU WILL TAKE THE LAND!”

The land the Church in the wilderness (Israelites) took from the enemy was physical territory.  But the land the Body of Christ will take involves spiritual territory, resulting in the largest harvest of souls the earth has ever seen.

Please pray over what you’ve read here. Ask the Lord for confirmation and instructions on what your individual role is to be.  Because if you notice, there were instructions given, actions to be taken BEFORE the wall fell.  As a matter of fact, they were told to go into battle, taking various pieces of territory before crossing over the Jordan under the leadership of Joshua.

“See, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite…..and his country.  Begin to take possession of it and engage him in battle.  This very day I will begin to put the terror and fear of you on all the nations under heavenThey will hear reports of you and will tremble and be in anguish because of you” (Deut. 2:24-25).

The Lord is calling us to begin to take possession of the land.  He wants to put the terror and fear of Jesus on all the nations under heaven.  He wants our enemy to begin to tremble and be in anguish because of the Body of Christ on the earth.

The Lord delivered many unborn babies the morning of October 21st.  The only part I played was that of being a willing vessel in His Hand.  Again, I ask everyone to take this message in prayer before the Lord.  If you volunteer, give yourself as a willing vessel, He’ll take it from there!

Additional Scripture References:

Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

2 Chronicles 20: 15-17, “…do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s…. You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you…”

Exodus 14:14, “The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”

Deut. 20:3-4, “…Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies.  Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”

Diana- I just want to 100% confirm exactly what you did. For the past year God has been drawing me closer to Him teaching me about the army of overcomers. This is the Bride. He has been showing me how to operate in an army mindset since He is the Lord of hosts. One piece of wisdom I received is we have to learn how to see our spiritual self. We know exactly what our physical self looks like but do we know what our spiritual person looks like. The answer is found in Revelation 1:8-17 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come. The lesson for me was I tended to focus on who Jesus was instead of focusing on who Jesus is. Right after Jesus says these words John turned around to see who was speaking and he didn’t recognize Him. That was my problem I kept seeing Jesus for who He was as a man and not who He is right now. When I started to meditate on who He is now I realized how big He is and powerful and yes His eyes are fire. After I had that revelation I started praying in a much bolder way because I saw Jesus as greater than the universe. The Holy Spirit had me start to take territory and claim land for the Kingdom. I claimed a highschool a huge neighborhood park and everywhere else the Holy Spirit led me. The Lord also had me cleanse the land of any unclean spirit, stronghold, ect. Because now when I battled I saw the Lord standing behind me and I had no fear. Then my next lesson happened. One morning I was talking… Read more »

Elizabeth,
Amen!!! That is the key – to know our TRUE identify in Jesus. That is the very thing satan tested Jesus on, “if you be the Son of God…” Each one of us will be tested on this! Yes, I hope everyone reads your comment and prayerfully meditates on the truth spoken.
Blessings to you!

Amen, Elizabeth! Nothing gets me more excited than engaging in spiritual warfare! We are an army and therefore we have to be militant in our prayers. Satan isn’t playing and so we must adopt a no-holds-barred and take-no-prisoners attitude when we pray.

Glory Hallelujah! I will take the land! I have been praying for a while now, that God touches my ears for great spiritual hearing, clarity, and understanding. And I want God to touch my eyes for great spiritual vision, clarity, and understanding. I want my spiritual eyes to be so great, I can see a penny on another planet. And, I want my spiritual hearing so great I can hear it, drop on another planet.

This may seem weird to some, but to me it’s a real prayer. I want to be operating in the spirit so great for God, these things happen, and I can be a mighty mighty warrior for God.

About a week ago I was also drawn into heavy intercession prayer after learning about the resurrection (dunemis) power that I have.

I’ve been reaching out to a couple friends that are really going through hard times. I shared the love of Jesus with them and got rejected. I then started praying that I had just planted a seed that will eventually grow… I then decided to interceed for them and break generational curses in their bloodlines, set them up with divine appointments, send them dreams/visions, etc…

Soon after I was interceeding for anyone I could think of! I have a map of world religions and I prayed over each religious group to be released from bondage and for their followers to recieve divine appointments, for the strongmans house to be destroyed and the demonic spiritual framework to be destroyed from around the institutions, etc… I prayed for satanic ritual abuse survivors to have their programing dismantled, blueprints of government/medical/educational/religious/financial desception exposed, famous Christian bashers to have Jesus encounters and salvation, etc…

Anyways, I felt SO on fire for Jesus and so powerful! I could feel the power of the Holy Spirit as a prayed with my hands raised in the air.

Together we are going to crush the enemy!

Hallelujah sister!! Praise God!!! That’s a fire that ignites me it has stirred up that which I’ve battled in before,only greater . I love the clarity and the boldness
The Lord has shown others visions of me as as little girl in native garb riding a bear as we were charging the enemy boldly shouting a war cry. Another saw me as a (native) adult riding a horse as we charged through the tall grass
Thank you for stirring me up to be what is am called

Sandra,
Thanks for sharing your personal warfare experience. I can attest to “feeling the power of the Holy Spirit.” As I rose from my chair that morning, a Holy righteous anger came all over me about what was planned that day against the innocent. When I opened my mouth and began to speak in the Name of Jesus, it was with much power – like a lion roaring. I fully believe it was Jesus Himself speaking through my mouth that morning.

Jeremiah 25;30 Therefore prophecy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, the Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall give a shout as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. Joel 3;16 The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Mic 5:7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men. Mic 5:8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. Mic 5:9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off. We are the ones spoken of here that will go forth in the might of the Lion of Judah carrying the water of life to this last generation. Fear not, strap on all the armor of God for the righteous are bold as a lion. Get in the secret place of the Most High and stay there. Remain humble and obedient to the voice of the Lord. Move and speak only at his direction. Acting in presumption will get you into trouble just like King Saul. Looking unto Jesus who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross.… Read more »

Jim,
Awesome! I was just speaking to a sister in Christ, who’s been put into a situation where there’re several demonic neighbors around her. This is real deal stuff. Because of circumstances, she’s certain the Lord has her there as an intercessor for the neighborhood and deliverance for those affected.

She and I discussed the importance of not speaking or doing what others tell her, but to only seek direction of the Lord in this situation. Thank you for the versus mentioned. We need to memorize these scriptures.
Very timely, Thank you!

Diana’s post is a word from the Lord. I say this because I was meditating on the Word of God this morning before I even ventured to check for any new posts here. The Lord led me to meditate on two scripture passages, and what I received from him agrees with all that Diana has shared. Message 1: Who is doing this great work? (John 16:5–16) Continue to abide in the work of the Holy Spirit. Continue to abide in my Word. Draw close to me, and stay close to me. Do not lean on your own understanding. It is the Holy Spirit who will guide you into all truth. [In other words, this is entirely the Lord’s doing through his Spirit.] Message 2: Who are the victims of this great work? (Romans 16:20–27) Satan is a defeated foe; for those who are in me, also, he is a defeated foe. He who lives in you is greater than him. Do not focus on the works of the devil but keep your focus on me. Though he rages like a flood and rushing river, he remains a defeated foe. [The victims are the devil and his minions.] Message 3: Why is the Lord doing this great work? (Romans 16:20–27) I have glorified my name before. I will glorify it again. [Simple—for his glory.] Message 4: What is my role in all this? (Romans 16:20–27) Do not fear what is about to happen. Stay close to me, and my Spirit will guide you. You will walk through all this. My Holy Spirit will guide you. [Simple again—stay close to him and let his Spirit guide me.] I also wish to include a warning, though this warning is not what I received during my meditation. But I feel an urging in my… Read more »

Sujit,
Great truth spoken! And you summed it up with the crux of the matter. Jesus has already won the victory, but we cannot go around swinging our swords at anything that just pops into our mind. We must be in the full armor of God 24/7, standing at the ready for a command from the Lord!
Thank you, Sujit!

Very timely! It is the 40 days for life prayer and fasting challenge. The 40 days will end on November 4.

A charismatic nun told me to pray with great feeling about stopping abortion, and that God always hears when we do and will answer. I haven’t been able to reach that place inside, of great depth as you have.

That is a wow! Thank you for sharing, and praying!!

sgd,
An estimated 33 million abortions have been performed worldwide so far this year, with around 900,000 in the United States! It’s THE leading cause of death in America., although the CDC will not list it in their data – still having heart disease as #1.

The heart of the Lord grieves over the slaughter of what His Word calls our Heritage! Children are a heritage (Inheritance) from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward (Ps 127:3).

Many of the Saints join you in prayer for these precious gifts.
God bless!

Dear Diana
I just heard a sermon on Jericho this Monday. Dr. Michael Lake on His Kingdom Intelligence Briefing had an audio sermon about Jericho and the strong cyclopean wall around the city. He mentioned that they used to sacrifice babies and put them in the walls to gain spiritual power for a stronghold in the land of Canaan. G-D mentioned to Joshua to take out this particular city because it was the main stronghold for the promised land. It was never to be rebuilt because Joshua cursed the rebuilding of it. Your connection of Jericho/abortions and spiritual battle to take down the stronghold in the land is so timely. It spoke to me of what type of prayers I need to pursue. The link is the abortions and having the strongman in our land. Thank you for this writing today. It was a confirmation or a coincidence from the L-RD to me.

I agree with Sue. This “taking” is referring to all things Spiritual, then, as God wills, the Land will be won back, little by little. But the Saints must guard their “captured” – reclaimed territory lest it be stolen again.
