I heard the Spirit of the Lord say, "This is the era of advancing and conquering territories. I have released a militant mantle upon My Church. I am raising up watchmen to come forth and take their position. I have given them authority to dispossess the enemy from the land. Start building the wall around the territory I have given you! Keep the enemy out! Build with a hammer in one hand and your sword in the other. Refuse to be distracted. Keep your eyes on Me and remain focused on what I have promised you.
"My children, your promises speak, and they do not lie; they are coming forth. The battle has intensified because you are so close to stepping over into the territory of your promise. The enemy cannot stop My word from coming to pass. Hold on! Do not cast away your confidence. Keep steady and stand strong in faith. Faith is what pleases Me. It is only by faith that you will occupy the land.
"Get ready for new battle plans and prophetic strategies. The methods that gained you victory in a past season will not succeed in this one. Keep your ear tuned to My voice. Do not grow weary. You are closer than you realize. You will gain ground and taste My reward. Indeed, you will feast on the spoils of the enemy IF you do not quit. In the midst of great warfare, I declare it is harvest time for you."
Get Ready to Be Relaunched! You Will Have Complete Victory
The alarm has sounded, and you are in an "all hands on deck" moment. Your name has been called to report for active duty, for God is reviving His Church. The warrior Bride is awakening from her slumber. This is the hour when the Ecclesia will confront the spirit of this age and take the land. (Photo via PickPik)
Possessing the land will require you to dispossess the giants currently inhabiting what God has promised you. Walk in boldness, knowing that Heaven is backing you. God is turning your failures from the past into your greatest triumphs, as He did for Joshua and the children of Israel. Get ready to be RELAUNCHED! You will have COMPLETE VICTORY.
When God announced to Joshua that it was time for the children of Israel to cross over and possess their territory, He made a way for them. He parted the waters of the Jordan for them to pass through on dry ground. Before they conquered the territory, He commanded them to circumcise their flesh. Their flesh needed to be subdued and brought under the authority of God before their promise could be taken.
After this, Joshua received an unusual battle plan from the Lord to take the city of Jericho. God instructed them to march in complete silence around the city once for six days, and on the seventh day, they were to march seven times; and when the priests blew the trumpet, they were to shout, and the walls would fall. They obeyed the prophetic strategy, and God did exactly what He had promised. Besides the battle plan God had given them, He also instructed them to destroy everything in the city except Rehab, who had hidden the spies and helped them to escape (Josh. 6).
No More Compromise
Israel's next conquest would be the city of Ai. After surveying the land, the scouts advised Joshua that only a small division of the army was needed to ensure the victory. Much to their shock, Israel was defeated by Ai, and 36 warriors were killed in the battle. The people were devastated after the loss, "...wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water" (Josh. 7:5). In other words, their hearts became unstable.
Joshua sought the Lord for the cause of their defeat, and the Lord told him that sin had come into the camp of Israel. Joshua traced the sin down to a man named Achan. He had stolen from Jericho even after God declared that nothing was to be taken. God told Joshua, "...for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff" (Josh. 7:11).
I have prophesied many times that God is bringing EXPOSURE, and hidden things will be revealed. Unrepentant leaders will be exposed and removed from high positions. God is bringing purity back into the Church—no more pollution or mixing of the consecrated with the corrupted. Achan had "mixed" the accursed thing with his own stuff! God says, "NO MORE COMPROMISE."

People of War – This Is Your Day for a Turnaround!
After dealing with the sin, God gave Joshua a new strategy for the second battle against Ai. He is doing the same for you! He's giving you a new strategy for victory over the battle in which you were previously defeated.
God instructed Joshua not to take a few, as he had the first time, but to "take all the people of war" (Josh. 8:1). Take note of how God described His people! He called them "the people of war." He didn't refer to them as failures or sinners. No, they were conquering warriors. This time, they would win the fight.
Joshua's battle plan was to divide the warriors to ambush the men of Ai. He instructed 30,000 men to go behind the city and wait until the right moment, while Joshua and the others positioned themselves west of Ai. Then Joshua led his group to the city gates, and when the men of Ai saw them, they all came out of the city in hot pursuit of Joshua and his warriors. Joshua and his men fled before them to draw them away from the city, giving time for the warriors who waited in ambush to enter the city. THEY TOOK TERRITORY! Suddenly, Joshua and his men turned around and began to battle the men of Ai.
That is what I call a turnaround! The hunted become the hunters; the defeated become the victors. God is doing the same for you. I prophesy, THIS IS YOUR DAY FOR A TURNAROUND!
