I don't know if you've felt it lately, but it seems like another wave of warfare has been released by the enemy. I believe now and into 2018 is a very pivotal time. These next three months are like a hallway of transition into stepping into a greater measure of what the Lord has for you. We just moved into the Hebrew year 5778, the year of the door and new beginnings. Isaiah 43:18 declares, "Look I"m doing a new thing, do you not perceive it?" The number eight prophetically represents new beginnings Many have stepped through the door and your feet are on the threshold. The transition period is stepping from the threshold into promise and the new.
At the beginning of the week I had two dreams back to back nights. Both carried a similar message. In the first dream, I was told last minute I was to share a word at a service. I began to tell the Lord I don't know what to say, Lord I don't have anything. And eventually it was my time to share and I said to myself, "Here we go, Lord speak through me." The second dream I was riding in a car with some people I knew in the dream. At the time in the dream there wasn't much going on in my life ministry wise an opportunities. I was in a waiting period. There was a girl who told me, "Why don't you just go back to working and the career you used to do, Why are you wasting your time with this ministry stuff? It's not very profitable for you."
From these dreams I believe the enemy is sending an onslaught of discouragement and resistance, because he doesn't want you to make it through the threshold into promise. He's sending discouraging dreams and mental onslaughts to get believers to question what God has placed within them, and quit. The recent mental warfare has been relentless. In times like these it's important to make sure you have your armor on (Eph 6), especially the helmet of salvation and the belt of truth. When the enemy begins to bring lies and accusations at you, you have to battle and declare the truth of the Word of God and what he says about you. It's imperative to daily renew your mind according to the word of God. Romans 12:2 says. "Be transformed by the renewing of your mind." As believers we have and can partake in the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).
To survive and transition into this new season it's vital to gird up your mind. The enemy doesn't play fair. He's after your promises and prophetic words. He wants to steal, kill, and destroy them (John 10:10). Don't give the enemy access. As Paul told Timothy, "Wage war with the prophetic words spoken over you" (1 Timothy 1:18). Pull down the vain imaginations that tries to exalt itself above the truth of God in your mind (2 Corinthians 10:5). If the enemy is pushing you back, push back even harder. Refuse to me moved. Many become causalities in the hallways of transition. Don't be a victim of transition. you're called to be an overcomer and one who conqeurs (Romans 8:37). Beloved push forward and don't shrink back because of the enemy's intimidation and lies. Close the door to the last season so you can't look back. Fix your gaze on what the Father has in front of you. Keep moving forward into promise and revelation.
