Jo Ellen Stevens: "The War Song That the Enemy Wants to Stop!"

Jo Ellen Stevens
Jul 15, 2020

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve ShultzDo you know how vitally important your worship before the Lord is?

King David himself knew the importance of worship before the Lord, especially as he went into battle before his enemies.

This word by Jo Ellen Stevens is a must read. Yes, the enemy is trying to shut our mouths and shut them in worship, but be encouraged in your praise before the Lord as Jo Ellen shares here:

His words sung by His Spirit bring a covering over us and the enemy cannot penetrate it! David knew this and created the Tabernacle, appointing singers and musicians to worship 24/7, because he already knew as a little shepherd boy that when he would worship in the fields, God would help him defeat the lions and the bears.

Yes, your worship is important in the NOT let the enemy silence your voice in this crucial time. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Our Honor, the Devil's Loss

It is the Church's honor to worship the Lord; this is why the enemy wants it stopped! He has always wanted it stopped from the beginning of time. I believe through COVID-19, the enemy's plans for us is to close our mouths! He wants the Church silent! Here is why:

"Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God: every precious stone was in thy garment, the ruby, the topaz, and the diamond, the chrysolite, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, emerald, and the carbuncle and gold: the workmanship of thy timbrels, and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created." (Ezekiel 28:13 GNV)

This passage is about our enemy, or rather, Lucifer before he rebelled and became satan. God is speaking here about how he was created and what he was created for. He had built into him pipes and timbrels meant for worship.

Lucifer was the chief musician in Heaven! He had all of that and yet His pride about his own beauty caused him to lose his place before the throne of God. Now, satan is looking at the worshiping Church and jealousy has risen up in him because he knows that he will never get his place back. He knows he has been stripped of his authority and beauty, and he has been cast out from Heaven with nothing left to look forward to but a fiery, burning Hell.

The Bible also says that he was the "covering cherub" (Ezekiel 28:14). He lost that. So who and what will take his place? Yes, we have been given the privilege of becoming those that stand before the throne of God and worship Him, and when we do, our worship begins to become the covering for cities, states, regions and nations!

The Spirit of Jealousy

If you are a musician or singer or on any kind of worship team, have you ever wondered why there is so much jealousy and division in that area? Well there you have it. I believe this is the spirit that attacks worshipers the most. (Photo via Vimeo)

Many years ago, when I was a part of a worship team at a church I was attending, I went to a prayer meeting in someone's house. As I was sitting there being the seer that I am, I suddenly saw a statue of Pharaoh standing in the corner and the Lord said, "This is the spirit of jealousy standing in the house!" I didn't understand then what it was about but the next week, as I was watching the worship team that had been bringing quite a breakthrough, I noticed something seemed to be wrong.

All at once the Lord spoke to me and said, "Every time the worship begins to bring breakthrough into a church, the spirit of jealousy rises up and will not allow My people to be free to worship Me, thus the statue of Pharaoh that you saw." So I said, "Why is that?" He said, "Remember that I told Moses to say to Pharaoh, 'Let My people go to be free to worship Me in the wilderness!' Then he hardened his heart and would not let them go. Do you know why he would not let them go? It is because it would bind his power, and I have given you that privilege!"

Psalms 149:5-9, "Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!"

It Covers Our Regions

You see, our worship provides a covering for our regions and for our cities and countries! Our worship isn't just some little song that we sing, but when we worship Him in spirit and in truth, we begin to allow the Lord to sing His song through us! We become a habitation for the Lord and for the Lion of the tribe of Judah to roar through!

His words sung by His Spirit bring a covering over us and the enemy cannot penetrate it! David knew this and created the Tabernacle, appointing singers and musicians to worship 24/7, because he already knew as a little shepherd boy that when he would worship in the fields, God would help him defeat the lions and the bears.

The Lord told me one time while fasting and praying on 9/11 that He had His very own "911." He then told me to turn in the Bible to Amos 9:11 (NKJV):

Israel Will Be Restored

"On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old."

Again, He told me to turn to the New Testament, Acts 15:16: "After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up." (Photo via Wikipedia)

The Enemy Wants to Shut This Down!

Yes, there may be COVID-19, and yes, there is rioting and looting—there is no denying that now. I am here to say to you: this is the enemy's plan to shut down worship! He is out to close it down. Here is one more passage in Scripture that will show you that our worship will cause God to come and fight for us. In this passage, He is coming to the sound of timbrels and lyres and He is coming to destroy Molech, the god of the Assyrians, which was the god of child sacrifice:

"You shall have a song as in the night when a holy festival is kept, and gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute, to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the Mighty One of Israel. The Lord will cause His glorious voice to be heard, and show the descent of His arm, with the indignation of His anger and the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the Lord Assyria will be beaten down, as He strikes with the rod. And in every place where the staff of punishment passes, which the Lord lays on him, it will be with tambourines and harps; and in battles of brandishing He will fight with it. For Tophet was established of old, yes, for the king it is prepared. He has made it deep and large; its pyre is fire with much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, kindles it." (Isaiah 30:29-33 NKJV)

You see, this is another thing that the enemy of our soul is fighting. He wants our worship stopped because it will cause the tide to be turned on the blood lust in America that is so desperately trying to keep abortion legal. It is child sacrifice at its worst, and if we are to ever see this abomination cease in our land, we must continue to worship Him! The enemy wants to deceive us right now and make us believe that our worship leaves us open to the virus, when in truth, it will cover us if we will see in the Spirit. Let those who have eyes to see and ears to hear shout His praises from the rooftops!
