TAKE DOMINION! - May 7/20
I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, “Take Dominion! Take Dominion of this land, the buildings, the property!”
This week when I was at the church for prayer on Monday, the Lord spoke to me as I walked to the altar to pray and He said the word, “Coals.” When I sat down at the altar I could see that there was coals with incense rising all along the altar. I didn’t completely understand what this meant at the time, but the Lord has been developing this revelation in my heart since.
As church leadership all around the world, most of us have settled into doing online services and using media for our platforms of Worship and Preaching the Word. We’ve encouraged our parishioners to create altars of worship in their homes and connect with God as individuals and families. The pandemic has brought about many different areas of opportunity for the body of Christ to come together virtually and seek the Lord, which has been amazing!
Last night the Lord spoke to my heart to go to the church property again this morning for a time of prayer. Half way on my drive there, the Spirit of the Lord began to manifest His presence to me in a very powerful way through tongues of fire, and as I came to the mouth of the driveway at the top of the hill, the Lord showed me to stop and plead the blood of Jesus over the property then I proceeded to park. When I got parked I heard the Spirit of the Lord say,
“TAKE DOMINION! Take Dominion of this land, the buildings, the property!” He said, “Declare this place Holy unto the Lord! Take authority over your spaces and places of worship! Assemble the prayer warriors, it’s time for the warriors to arise to war! Lift up your swords for the battle, the war will be intense like no other, but you are prepared for such a time as this. I have prepared you! Join forces with one another, I have prepared you for this very moment and together you will arise a mighty army. My kingdom is at hand, I’m calling the warriors to assemble themselves in My presence. I am the God that healeth thee and I am your reward. Follow My lead, follow the voice of the prophets, My Word shall rain upon the earth in these days! Lift up your heads saints! Lift up the heads of the down trodden and the fearful. My Word is alive and active. All is not lost as some say, you have only begun, the work is great! Strengthen the weak ones with songs of praise. Hear Me! Listen to My voice! I have much to say in these days!”
Children of God its time rise up and take dominion over our places of worship, take dominion over our land! We must proclaim the reopening of our churches and gathering spaces of worship to the spirit realm. Our enemy the devil desires to take this freedom from us, but this is contrary to the will of the Father! The Lord says to take dominion! Enter the battle! Don’t just lie down and give up and give in! I will be very clear, your enemy is not the government or city officials, we wage a war that is supernatural, For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph 6:12 So we need to pray for our governments in their decision making, that they will allow us to return to our places of worship and do battle in the spirit realm on the spiritual front to take dominion. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
Our places of worship are important to the Lord. Places that have been dedicated to God! Yes, we are the temple, we are the church, we are the Body of Christ and His presence dwells within us, yet as I sat at the altar on Monday night and worshiped and envisioned the coals of fire and incense rising to the Heavens, I discerned the residue of supernatural worship that has taken place there. From the Upper Room to Azusa, or from Mount Sinai to the Promised Land, all throughout history you can see that God has chosen places, times and people to reveal His power and pour His Spirit upon! We will see the Word of the Lord fulfilled and the greatest Harvest of souls yet to come! In this time of reset we have been aligning ourselves and consecrating ourselves to God for this very hour! Arise and take dominion Church! In my previous study the Lord was emphasizing that we are the “Joshua Generation”! In Joshua 6 we see that soon after crossing the Jordan River the children of Israel were quickly positioned for battle to take Jericho. Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war; rouse the mighty men; let all the men of war advance and attack! Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, ‘I am strong!’ Joel 3:9-10 It’s time for war church! Let’s put on His armour and declare the Word of the Lord in this hour.
