A Diabolical Plan of the Enemy

On the night of the 10th of August, I had a very vivid dream that I believe to be a strong alert to the Body of Christ, especially to leadership. In this dream, I saw a diabolical plan of the enemy revealed by the Lord. The enemy's plan was to bring harm to the intercessors, prayer shields, and armor bearers who were covering certain leaders. The enemy had felt unsuccessful in getting to the leadership, and now was targeting their prayer coverings as a strategy to get to them. The dream showed in detail how the enemy had infiltrated and gained access into a certain intercessory group that had been covering leadership.

The Enemy's Plan Backfired

In my dream, even though the enemy had seemed successful to some extent, their plan ultimately failed, as Heaven caused their ammunition of destruction, which was intended for their victims, to backfire. Though it seemed that some distress or hurt had been caused to some of the intercessors, there was a surprise turnaround, which I believe was due to a divine intervention by the hand of the Lord. The ammunition used and released by the enemy boomeranged, entering back into the heart of the wicked enemy. Then I saw the enemy lying flat on their back, injured but still alive, unable to rise to cause more damage.

I woke up from the dream and started to pray intermittently throughout the day, even up until now. As a leader myself, I have various intercessors, and at times some armor bearers, so I began to cover them in prayer and with the Blood of Jesus.

Prophetic Directive

As I strongly sense this alert is for the wider leadership in the Body of Christ, I feel led to release this directive:

Leaders, ARISE and cover those who have covered you faithfully in prayer. We are in a battleground in this world, and while we are never to fear and we are always to walk in victorious faith in all we do, the wisdom from Heaven is to understand the enemy's tactics and respond with Heaven's strategies.

I encourage you, leaders (or anyone with a support group or prayer covering around them), to increase your prayer covering for those whom Heaven has assigned to you.

On June 27, 2017, I released a prophetic alert on the need for watchmen to arise and pierce the darkness in the UK. At that time, there had been serious ISIS attacks in the UK, but many Believers responded to that word, saying they were praying and fasting. The spate of attacks miraculously eased in answer to their prayers. I implore you to respond with a similar diligence, as all arise to pray against demonic strategies of attack that have been sent against leadership and their prayer shields within the wider Body of Christ. I am certain in my heart of an outcome of victory which has already been settled and established in Heaven.

A Revelation of a Prayer Strategy

Several years ago, I had a vision where I saw many Believers standing and stretching out their hands toward those in front of them as they covered each other's backs in prayer. Everyone was covered as they stood in a line.

Church, today let's be a prayer covering that releases God's glory as a rearguard for each Believer. The glory will be the shield the enemy cannot penetrate.

A Key for Intercessors

Intercessors, remain vigilant, fearless and pure as you wear your full armor – the "armor of light" – at all times (see Romans 13:12; Ephesians 6:11).

Several years back, I woke up suddenly from a dream where I had been in battle against the enemy. Fleetingly, I entered into a trance before I became fully awake and saw myself covered in a full body armor of light. I understood by revelation that the armor had protected me from being harmed.

This is a season to be sober, putting off all works of darkness in our own lives as we put on the full armor of light. I believe staying armored, fearless, and in faith and purity at all times are key to keeping the enemy from gaining access.

Haman's Total Defeat

Haman was the enemy of Mordecai and the Jews in the book of Esther. His wicked plans were overturned as he fell into his own trap. In my dream, as the ammunition boomeranged and entered into the heart of the wicked enemy of the saints, the enemy fell and became fatally injured, unable to rise.

Saints, decree an utter end to the enemy's plan against the Body of Christ, and that the enemy would have no way to regroup or rise again as they fall in total defeat after the order of Haman. (Photo via Picryl)

Stand and decree an overturning and a reversal of all plans of the enemy, so that what has been incubated in the evil spirit world will not manifest in the earth realm.

Love – An Important Weapon

In the vision I had several years ago, where each Believer was covering each other, I saw how so full of love they were for one another as they lovingly surrounded each other with prayers that seemed like a shield. No one stabbed each other in the back or walked in discord. Through love, they waged a good warfare to cover each other. With this, I also hear a gentle warning from the Lord to not give discord access as you pray with boldness and a pure heart.

Today, I pray for the backup of a heavenly army of angels to be released for the protection of every faithful intercessor, prayer shield, armor bearer, and even those who pray for us without our knowledge. Let no one be uncovered in this hour as our prayers for each other form a ring of covering that the enemy cannot penetrate.

I pray that every 'Haman' with a devious plan to take down the intercessor shields of God's leaders will fall into their own trap as their plan backfires. Lord Jesus, take all the glory and honor for bringing into the light what has been planned in darkness.

Leaders, let us pray for those who are covering us!
