The White Horse and Rider
On January 23, 2024 at 8 a.m., as I was in prayer, I started to hear this verse in my spirit:
"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places." (Matthew 24:6-7 NKJV)
I understand that we are coming into very critical times, but we are instructed not to fear. As I heard God say, "Do not fear," and out of nowhere, I saw a white horse circling around the land of Israel. The horse started out white, but as it kept circling, it changed color, turning fiery and red.
I started researching white horses in Scripture. The first passage which popped out was Revelation 19:11-15:
"Now I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God." (NKJV)
As I was reading this Scripture, many words began to stand out. His name is "Faithful and True"; "He judges and makes war." But more interestingly was this: "He was clothed in a robe dipped in blood," and "He Himself treads the winepress."
As I was reading this Scripture, thinking about all that's happening in Israel, the USA, and around the world, I could immediately see that the "Faithful and True" who sat on the white horse was wearing a robe dipped in blood. I knew that this was a graphic image of the Lord revealing Himself in this season not only as a Father or Friend, but as the Great Warrior who will fight our fights and is scheduling us for great victory.
Immediately, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the way God portrayed Himself in Isaiah 63. In this passage, Isaiah prophesied that severe judgment would come against the Lord's enemies from the Lord Himself. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Isaiah saw the Lord coming from the nation of Edom, and His royal robe was stained in red.
The prophet asked, "Who is this in royal robes, marching in His great strength?"
The Lord replied, "It is I, the LORD, announcing your salvation! It is I, the LORD, who has the power to save!"
"Why are your clothes so red, as if you have been treading out grapes?"
"I have been treading the winepress alone; no one was there to help Me. In My anger I have trampled My enemies as if they were grapes. In My fury I have trampled My foes. Their blood has stained My clothes. For the time has come for Me to avenge My people, to ransom them from their oppressors. I was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. I was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So, I Myself stepped in to save them with My strong arm, and My wrath sustained Me. I crushed the nations in My anger and made them stagger and fall to the ground, spilling their blood upon the earth." (see Isaiah 63:1-6 NLT) (Photo via Pexels)
Damascus Road Encounters and a Mega Glory Revival
I clearly heard the Lord saying, "We are entering a time of intense persecution, but get ready for dramatic 'Damascus Road' encounters, and a mega glory revival."
On the road to Damascus, a zealous man called Saul of Tarsus was on his way to arrest those who belonged to the Way:
"As he was approaching Damascus on this mission, a light from Heaven suddenly shone down around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, 'Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting Me?'
"'Who are You, Lord?' Saul asked.
"And the voice replied, 'I am Jesus, the One you are persecuting! Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.'" (Acts 9:3-6 NLT)
So, the persecutor will become the proclaimer. The persecutor will become the preacher. Many leaders in Hamas and other radical Islamic groups are about to encounter the Lord. They will turn on each other and start to proclaim the Gospel.

A Word for Israel
I heard the Lord say, "My enemies will be flung into the press as ripe grapes. Get ready to see tremendous judgment coming over those who oppress My people. I am the one who crushes, not the one who is crushed. The time has come to avenge My people. I am not only announcing judgment, I am executing it.
"Many nations are folding their arms and watching the injustice. Many refuse to intervene, and those who intervene seem helpless. Therefore, the time has come; for as I brought Israel through the sea and displayed My power, I will do it again. I am coming with a mighty hand to ransom them from their oppressors. I will step in with a mighty arm, and many in Israel will get to know Me as their Messiah—many, many, many. For I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look to Me. Yes, they will search for Me, and I will reveal Myself to them. You will hear of many Damascus Road encounters, for the Sauls are coming. It will be a time of harvest and great glory as My people, Israel, will see My mighty hand stretch out to help them.
"Get ready to see Me encounter the most radical Islamic terrorists. I will show Myself to them in dreams and visions. Get ready to see the persecutors become the proclaimers and the murders become the preachers and stand with My people, Israel. For My manifest presence, My glory, will be seen in Israel."
A Surprise Attack, a Divine Ambush, and a Great Victory
Prophetic word (January 25, 2024):
As we were in prayer, the Lord highlighted this verse to my husband Mina:
"So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped." (2 Chronicles 20:24 NLT)
Mina was excited and sent it to me, and I felt that it was so in line with Isaiah 63. As a nation, surprise attacks will arise, and the enemy will try and be creative by getting God's enemies to unite and attack. But this will be God's opportunity to execute a divine ambush. So, let's look further into this chapter.
"After this, the armies of the Moabites, Ammonites, and some of the Meunites declared war on Jehoshaphat. Messengers came and told Jehoshaphat, 'A vast army from Edom is marching against you from beyond the Dead Sea...'" (2 Chronicles 20:1-2 NLT)
An unexpected attack came from three different nations who bonded together against Israel (God's chosen). Even though God would not let His people attack these nations when they left Egypt, these nations, for no good reason, joined together to attack Israel.
At first, Jehoshaphat was terrified by this attack. He ordered all the people to come to Jerusalem and seek the Lord's help. This was the result:
"At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves. The armies of Moab and Ammon turned against their allies from Mount Seir and killed every one of them. After they had destroyed the army of Seir, they began attacking each other. So when the army of Judah arrived at the lookout point in the wilderness, all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground as far as they could see. Not a single one of the enemy had escaped." (2 Chronicles 20:22-24 NLT) (Photo via Piqsels)
At the very moment they began to sing, something happened. Literally, at the time when they began to shout and give praise something happened. They had now reached the neighborhood of the enemy, and their joyful praise was the signal for a divine intervention.
The Lord set an ambush. The Ammonites and Moabites first turned their weapons against the inhabitants of Mount Seir, and after they had exterminated them, they began to exterminate each other. This ambush couldn't have been composed of men from Judah, because they were commanded not to fight.
A Word for February
[Editor's note: Yvon didn't get to share her February word on her recent interview, but we wanted to include it here for our readers and viewers to enjoy for themselves!]
"Expect a sudden ambush, and do not be surprised. The enemy plotted many attacks against you, and even made some of you believe that I was against you. The battle that's against you, and even against your health, has been severe; for the enemy has been prowling around you like a roaring lion and has joined hands with others to destroy you.
"But I have seen your tears, and I have heard your cry. I have seen your oppression and your relentless faith, and I will come to save and avenge you. This battle is not yours to fight; this battle is Mine. Do not be in distress, nor fear the attacks of the enemy, for like dust they will vanish.
"For as you sing and shout for joy, you will see My salvation. You will not even need to fight. Take your positions; stand still and watch My VICTORY. For I the Lord your God am with you. Your praise and your shout for victory will destroy the enemy. Get ready, for the walls of Jericho will collapse by My divine power and strength.
"You have known Me as your Father, and as your Friend, but you are about to know Me as your King and your divine Warrior who fights your battles and spreads the banner of victory over your head. You are about to know Me as Jehovah Nissi.
"For the time will come, and I will ask you, 'Son, daughter, where are your accusers?' You will look around and not find them, for from the oldest to the youngest, they will vanish from the scene.
"Remember what My Son has done—the one who canceled the record of the charges against you, the one who disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities and shamed them publicly.
"This is a month to give thanks, a month of praise—even before you see your victory. For My unfailing and steadfast love towards you endures forever. Do not believe the lies of the enemy. This is the month to believe and declare a sudden ambush, for I am not announcing judgment over your enemy; I am executing it. For there shall be a sudden surprise, [an] unexpected ambush from the courts of Heaven, like it was done in the days of old. They praised, they worshiped, and all they saw were dead bodies lying on the ground. There will be no escape for the enemy.
"But as for you, you will see My hand stretched out to save and to deliver you. You will come to the watchtower and discover that because of your praise, a divine ambush has taken place. It shall be a month of receiving a rich blessing, for you will plunder the enemy's camp. Get ready to sing, to praise, and to receive your victory!"
