As I read through Ben Lim's recent article I said, "Now that's a 'Bold' word for the Body of Christ right now."
God is causing His Church to arise with new boldness and confidence to do things we've never done before, as Ben shares here:
Please read this entire article by Ben...as you become empowered to boldly do all God is calling you to accomplish in the days ahead! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Beyond Enemy Lines
There is a place called "there" which our spirits deeply long for. There is a place called "beyond" which our spirit man is pulling us toward. The gravitational pull of His glory is drawing us and it cannot be stopped. "The more" is what we as Believers were created for. We are coming into a collision point, a face-to-face encounter with a divine date with destiny.
Taking New Territories
I believe that we are in a season of taking new grounds and new territories in the spirit and in the natural. We are advancing and we are expanding. That is why many have been experiencing such great warfare—it is because we are standing our ground and aggressively moving forward with our heavenly marching orders.
Even as President Trump just recently crossed over the border of North Korea, the Lord is giving you the spirit of boldness and resilience to make history and to cross the borders of your fears and skepticism.
We will break records. We will make history. We will break stigmas and we will be a prophetic sign for the new era that we are in.
The Lord is causing you to go beyond your boundaries and to step upon your enemy's territories. It is time for us to cross over and to conquer the realm of the unknown.
Overcoming Witchcraft and Possessing the Kingdom
Many have been sharing and confirming, from all around the world, how intense the witchcraft and warfare has been. Even in the last season there has been an increase in demonic activity, for the enemy is blatantly trying to pride and parade himself against the spiritual temperament and future of the Church.
The devil is in an all-out war with the saints, but we must praise the Lord for we have the victory! The banner of our God is being raised up in our midst and the Lord is causing His enemies to scatter! (Photo via Pexels)
"As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the Kingdom." (Daniel 7:21-22)
It's easy when God is on our side. It's easy when Christ is our leader. Let Him lead and watch Him do it. Let Jesus speak and watch Him give you victory!
This is truly the key to overcoming witchcraft and all adversity: We must stay in His glory. We must stay in His presence. We must dwell and abide in the shadow of the Most High. He will fight our battles and He will give us the wisdom, tactics and strategies needed to deploy angels and to ensue victory in Jesus' name.
The Bible says, in Daniel 7:22, that the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people, and they possessed the Kingdom. The Lord is pronouncing favor upon your life! The King is rendering a righteous judgment of favor upon you, and it's now time for you to posses the Kingdom. The Lord has enacted the heavenly courts with holy jurisdiction for you to posses the kingdoms of the world. It is time for us to posses all that Christ has given us in the heavenly places.
A Divine Way Forward
I do believe that this is a season for us to step into new places and new territories. It is time for us to go beyond and to cross into the enemy's territories; to step forward and to possess the lands of our forefathers and foremothers. However, we must be aware of the snakes and the snares that are hidden in the ground. We must be aware of the traps and the land mines that are hidden in the dirt.
"Surely He will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence." (Psalm 91:3)
"The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from Your precepts." (Psalm 119:110)
There are words, conversations, situations, challenges and opportunities that are placed before us, and we must be wise in all of our doings. There are tests that the Lord Himself has placed, and there are setups and traps for your downfall that the enemy has placed.
However, there is always a way out!
"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)
There is always a way out! Have you been feeling stuck? Have you been troubled? There is a divine way out for you! He is the door of destiny. He is your salvation, Yeshua.
You will no longer circle around and around the tests and the mountains of cycles, but you will pass through and you will possess the promise.
The "Rhema" Word of Deliverance
The Lord does not want us to become "needless casualties of war," as the great John Paul Jackson once wrote about. The Lord wants us to be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves (Matthew 10:16). However, way too many of us as Believers have fallen into a worldly type of wisdom rather than the spirit of wisdom from Heaven. Way too many prophets and prophetic intercessors have been taken out by the spirit of presumption and pride, and have stepped out of the bounds of His grace.
Have we been led by Him or have we been led by our needs? Have we been led by His Spirit or have we been led by our schedules, our bank accounts and our systems of yesterday? We must tap in the new and let go of the old. We must surrender ourselves to His presence and not strive to perform in our gifts. The Lord wants to put us to rest so that we may be still before Him.
We must have a tight grip on our tongue. We must have tight reigns on our strength. We must have the spirit of self-control in this hour to reel us in rather than allow the machine of ministry and the mechanics of "doing" take over.
The Lord of the Breakthrough
"And David inquired of the LORD, 'Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You give them into my hand?' And the LORD said to David, 'Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand.' And David came to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there. And he said, 'The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like a breaking flood.' Therefore the name of that place is called Baal-perazim." (2 Samuel 5:19-20 ESV) (Photo via Unsplash)
The key to breakthrough is to inquire of the Lord. David did not go forward in his own ambitious and ambiguous strength but he waited upon the Lord for wisdom and for clarity. We must wait upon the Lord for His divine rhema, His revelatory word. We must wait upon the Lord with great clarity to move forward with our weapons of righteousness. We must not step ahead of the Lord but we must wait upon Him and His command. We need to be in alignment with His Spirit.
The greater the battle, the clearer wisdom we need from the heavens. The more the Lord entrusts to us, the more we must learn to wait upon Him.
Retrieve and Seize the New!
We are in a time where we are warring to take back the lost sons, the lost territories and the lost resources that the enemy has taken from us. This is more than just restoration, this is divine payback and retribution.
"Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea." (Deuteronomy 11:24)
The Lord is causing you to believe with the spirit of boldness and to begin to prophetically walk with the Lord as the tabernacle of His presence. You shall see the Lord split the seas and part the skies for the land and its harvest is coming into your possession.
The time of watching and waiting is over. The hour of the watchmen has now become the hour of the warriors. The Lord has anointed you to advance forward and to push back the forces of darkness. May the cloud of His presence shroud around you as you cross enemy territories to retrieve the lost, the poor, the broken, and all that was stolen. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
