But the fake prophetic is coming from the enemy's camp.

I recently heard the Lord tell me, "There is a lot of legitimate warfare going on right now in the spirit, but there is also a great emphasis on the side of the enemy to coax us into the wrong war." As I asked the Lord to elaborate further on that statement He replied, "Scroll through Instagram."
Following the odd response, I scrolled through Instagram and came across a post from an account called "sciencesetfree." This post in particular was an old video of soldiers flipping over tanks and other army vehicles. They were fakes – an inflatable army used to distract Germany away from Normandy in World War 2.
Researching this further, I found that this was done by a top-secret U.S. Army battalion known as the "Ghost Army." (Photo via Pikrepo)
The 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, also known as the "Ghost Army," brought together artists, career military officers and audio experts in a unique unit devoted to the art of deception – "the first mobile, multimedia, tactical deception unit in U.S. Army history"...
Using a combination of science and art, the Ghost Army staged nearly two dozen missions between May 1944 and 1945 with the sole purpose of tricking Nazi troops about the whereabouts of Allied forces in Europe. In the process, their efforts saved the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers. Its existence was kept secret for more than 40 years after the war's end; the Ghost Army remained officially classified until the mid-1990s, according to the WWII Museum. (www.livescience.com)
I Am Opening Eyes to What Is Real and What Is an Illusion
As I read further about this Ghost Army, the Lord spoke:
"The enemy has established his Ghost Army and has released them to distract the Body of Christ. His plan in this hour is to get us fighting the wrong war so that he keeps us away from the real one. He has picked up on the weak discernment of many and is tricking them into fruitless fights. They will war against the wind, expend their energy, and never overcome in the real battle. But do not worry, because I am correcting the course of many. I am opening their eyes to what is real and what is simply an illusion so that they can fight the GOOD fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12) and overcome."
He said: "Tell them to ask Me to teach them how to rightly discern because 2021 will demand great discernment in order to prevail and advance." (Photo via Pxhere)
The advancement in discernment that He is inviting us into is not just for spiritual warfare, but it is also to discern the right opportunities that He'll be placing before us in 2021. There will be great God opportunities that will be presented to us, but we need to be able to discern between the ones that He is presenting and the ones that are presented only to be a distraction.
As we enter 2021, ask Him to help you posture your heart in such a way that you are able to hear the voice of your good Father teaching you how to discern rightly in a deeper way. Lean into His chest to be closer to Him as well as hear His secrets. The triumphs of 2021 hinge on how rightly we discern the hour in which we are living.
