You must overcome.
I was recently in a battle more intense than I ever experienced before. It was literally a battle in the spirit manifesting in the natural. It felt as if everyone I knew was fighting something in the spirit and satan wanted to stop what was going to happen in the next two days.
We were on a two day courses in Hartbeespoort regarding covenants. It was hosted by Vera Harrison and her team. We were doing spiritual warfare and breaking covenants that was made in the kingdom of darkness. The last day and was very intense. Early in the morning I felt that something was activated in the spirit. I knew we were stepping on toes. The longer I sat there, the more intense the battle began. The fight was in the spirit, but is was manifesting in my body.
It got so intense. I left and went too pray in the bathroom. I was asking my King to relieve the symptoms form my body as it was the result of what I was fighting in the spirit. I heard Holy Spirit say to me “go back and fight”. I was pleading to my Beloved that He would intercede for me and step in and lift the symptoms on my body. I heard Holy Spirit say “I AM not testing your faith now My daughter, I AM testing your strength. Now go and fight, for I AM with you. You are fighting this inheritance since you were born. You are fighting the water spirits. Go… for the covenants that were made many generations ago, are fighting you now. There is going to be a petition in My courts today to annul these covenants. You must go and fight and bring these covenants before Me.”
Once I knew what I was fighting, I got up and went back and started to warfare with single vision. Keeping my eyes on Yeshua, my Beloved. Knowing that He has already won this war for me. The pain was so intense, but I kept fighting back. I could feel that hell was open and literally fighting back. It felt like death was going to overtake me. I asked a lady to please pray for me. Her spirit is a spirit of total Joy. The previous night while we were worshiping, the Lord told me that He is going to use her in a mighty way. He was releasing a flow of joy through her to many when they come into His presences.
At one time I was laying on the ground with my head on Michael’s lap, my son. He too was praying for me. It felt like hours went by with no relieve. All I wanted to do is to crawl in bed and sleep, hoping that the pain would go away. But the words of my Beloved came to me. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Yeshua has overcome it all for me!! Holy Spirit kept on reminding me of the Word, giving me strength to go on.
John 17:1-5 “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may glorify You. For You granted Him authority over all people that He might give eternal life to all those You have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know You, the only true God, and Yeshua Christ, whom You have sent. I have brought You glory on earth by finishing the work You gave Me to do. And now, Father, glorify Me in your presence with the glory I had with You before the world began.”
John 17:13-18 “I AM coming to You now, but I say these things while I AM still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of My joy within them. I have given them Your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I AM of the world. My prayer is not that You take them out of the world but that You protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I AM not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify Myself, that they too may be truly sanctified”
I knew that if I overcome this, my Father will be glorified. I knew that He cannot just take me out of this world, but that He will protect me. When I overcome this, it will not just be for me, but also for my son and his children that is to come. I have learned in these years that every fight you fight is for a generations that is here and to come. We serve a God that thinks generationally. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Marikha and my seed. He is always testing our hearts to see our motives so that the rotten fruit can be taken out. So that new seeds of life can be planted for generations to come.
Later that afternoon, I felt victory come into my spirit. My body released all the tension and I started to feel better. I realized how weak my body was in comparison to my spirit. I was also fighting a weak flesh. I overcame it by the Blood of the Lamb and the Name above all Names, Yeshua. I could see how many of us became free. How the Light flooded the darkness. How healing came in different forms. After all of that we went for a Mikveh. We declared one season over and ready for the next to begin. I was still fiscally weak but I knew that I stood in victory.
When we were at home I went to bed. All the muscles in my body was so tens. As I was laying there Holy Spirit said to me “ you fought the same battle 5 years ago. You fought the agent, the spirit of fear and overcame it. It took your body 5 days to recover. You were fighting a principality today, and you overcame it. My children think that when they are going through a test, that I AM testing their faith. I AM testing their strength. I want to make you a warrior bride rooted in faith. I want to make you stronger for the time that we are in. You must hold fast in My love for you and remember the Covenant that we are in. I AM going to give you spiritual muscles to overcome in My Sons Name. So many times My children will ask Me why I have forsaken them. Why I have given them over to the enemy. But they do not see that I AM putting them in the fire to burn away all the impurities. I AM a Holy God and I want my children to be holy. My heart’s desire is to see them overcome. Allow Me to test you and put you through the fire. Allow My Spirit to teach you to overcome.”
1 John 5:4 “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith”
James 1:12 “ Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
In this season we are in, YHVH is cleansing us and making us overcomers. He is teaching us how to fight in the spirit and how the spirit world works. He will take us from glory to glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
It is truly an honor to go through these processes. YHVH has given us wisdom to attend these courses in Hartbeespoort. He is giving wisdom and knowledge to the group that is teaching us. May they be blessed because of their obedience to the King.
All the glory and honor belongs to YHVH.
