I couldn't agree more with the revelation in Daniel Pontious' recent word as he shares this:
Now that word should cause us all to want to rise up in boldness and take back what the enemy has stolen. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

One of the big takeaways I have from our current global situation, stemming from the current pandemic, hasn't been just the economy, the government or even the shutting down of churches...I believe one of the biggest agenda's of Hell has been its attempts to SILENCE THE MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST! While the other things that I mentioned have many people concerned in the natural realm, the results of this "silencing" have great implications too. The enemy knows that a silenced Church is a defeated Church.
The Oracles of God
The people of God carry the ability to damage and even destroy the enemy's plans, tactics and agendas, because they are the ones called to be oracles for the Lord. (Photo via Flickr)
"WHOEVER SPEAKS, [LET HIM DO IT AS ONE WHO UTTERS] ORACLES OF GOD; whoever renders service, [let him do it] as with the strength which God furnishes abundantly, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (the Messiah). To Him be the glory and dominion forever and ever (through endless ages). Amen (so be it)." (1 Peter 4:11, emphasis added)
The Church (the people) have always been the mouthpiece of the Holy Spirit, used by God to declare His Word, His power and His presence into the earth; so if the enemy can somehow mute those people, he will try to make them completely ineffective in the earth.
A Saturation of Lies and Unbelief
While trying to mute the Body of Christ, the enemy has also filled and saturated the airwaves with as much unbelief and as many lies as possible, attempting to further inhibit and depress the people of God. Because of this saturation, some Believers have even started to believe the lies being propagated through the media and other sources that are trying to cause division and strife.
It's Time to Find Your Voice!
The Body of Christ must find its voice once more! It's time to rise up as individual members of the corporate Body and begin to declare and decree, like never before, what the Holy Spirit is telling us to declare – not just to the people and the governments, but to the earth itself and everything in it. The earth is groaning, travailing and reeling right now in ways we've never seen or experienced!
"Hark, Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they sing for joy; for they shall see eye to eye the return of the Lord to Zion." (Isaiah 52:8)
"For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God's sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]." (Romans 8:19) (Photo via Unsplash)
DON'T ALLOW THE ENEMY TO SILENCE YOUR VOICES, PEOPLE OF GOD! Lift up your voices in this hour; let the earth and everything in it hear what the Holy Spirit is declaring to you, in you and through you, because it is your silence, in every area of your life, that the enemy is capitalizing on to bring his plans to pass.
A Vocal Church Is an Empowered Church
A vocal Church is an empowered Church, for it is a Church filled with "God abilities" and His presence. Never let the enemy silence you or take away your voice again. Declare to your body, declare to your family, declare to your neighbors, declare to your cities and nations what the Holy Spirit is telling you to declare. Then watch the atmospheres and circumstances shift as the Word of God goes forth into the earth!
