Immediately as I was just starting to wake up this morning, I knew I was in an intelligence briefing room and I heard what was being said in this briefing. Here is what I heard, “Church we are in a war of the likes we have never known before. We need both air and ground attacks to happen simultaneously for the enemy is deeply entrenched but is being dislodged.” I knew this was a military strategy intelligence briefing for the ekklesia. As I thought about what I was hearing, i knew it was a call to step up the intercession for both air and land warriors. Then the verse that came to my spirit was 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
The battle we are in uses the flesh but it is not fleshly, it is a spiritual war. The enemies we are fighting are not human, they are spirits, they are voices, they are not human. We are in a battle of spiritual warfare of the the likes that only the ekklesia can wage war in. This is not an ideological war, it is a spiritual war with an ancient serpent and his seed. Therefore, we must be dressed for battle, Ephesians 6:11-14 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”
The world is headed into the “holiday season” and the Lord is calling us into a posture of war. The world and the church can be lost in the festivities but the ekklesia is being briefed on the battle. The ekklesia is not going into a holiday season, we are headed into another level of warfare for the nations. We as the ekklesia cannot succumb to the “holiday spirit” for we are in the midst of a war for the nations. We cannot let our guard down, for the battle does not recognize earthy holidays. For those who have ears to hear.
