Prophetic Word: The Lord Says, ‘I Allowed the Enemy to Think He Had Won’

by | May 27, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

“For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising” (Isaiah 60:2-3, NKJV)

As a prophet, I often stand as a watchman on the wall. I watch the land for any work of the enemy. During my time on the wall, I’ve seen “a darkness” cover the earth.

From the world of politics to the medical system, the entertainment system, and even the religious system, the enemy has begun to take ground.

I’ve heard the whispers and questions of the church. They ask, “Why have you allowed this, oh Lord? Why has the darkness won?” Despite the darkness surrounding the world, I sensed a glimmer of hope within my spirit.

So, I sought the Lord with their questions. I asked what was going on and why He had allowed such works to bear fruit. As I sought the Lord for a word, I saw a vision of a round table.

Seated around the table were kings and ambassadors from different nations. They talked about the state of the world and strategized what to do next.

The door to their war room opened, and there stood Jesus. Dressed in royal uniform, He led a gorgeous bride into the room. Her gown was hand-stitched with chainmail to match the beading of her veil.

Finally, He had her take a seat at the table. As she talked, everyone turned to listen. The Lord then said:

“I’m setting My church on a hilltop. I’m positioning her for everyone to see. Her voice will echo from every corner of the world. I’ll put her as a standard for others to follow. I’ll give her a seat at the table of kings and foreign dignitaries. I’ll position her to influence the very world around her.

“To do this, I allowed the enemy to think he had won. I let him think he had stolen my Bride’s voice. No, I’ve been equipping her. I’ve been crafting her words and actions in secret. This Bride I’m about to present is no ordinary Bride. She has every weapon of warfare.

“She’s clothed in My armor and prepared to remove the strongholds satan worked so hard to build. I’m calling you, My apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Stand beside her. I’m calling you out of hiding. Stand alongside her as she takes ground. I’ve equipped each one of you with a pattern to bring change. I’ve imparted the anointing that’ll break the yoke of this world.

“It’s time to stand on your platform and speak out. Speak the message I’ve given you. Show the people that the darkness has not won. I have prepared a perfect Bride, one without spot or wrinkle. She has what it takes to bring change. Pray her through. Cover her and let her light shine brightly for the world to see.

“Your voice will bring attention to her. When My Bride rises to speak, the world will listen.”

“Christ has prepared His Bride. He has set the stage for change, and now it’s your turn. Step out. Open your mouth. Raise your weapons of warfare and let us take ground. {eoa}
