In the very early morning hours, I prayerfully asked the Lord if He had a message for the Church when suddenly two visions were shown. In the first one, I saw a hand and a long arm. In the second one, beings dressed in deep black were shown. Suddenly, they were powerfully thrown in the air and in different directions as though an invisible explosion took place.
The First Vision
The interpretation was clearly understood. The first vision symbolizes the powerful Hand and Arm of the Lord. It is unlike the ‘arm of the flesh’ which symbolizes natural man’s dependency on self, his own might and power. (This statement was confirmed with the following Word of Knowledge: People.) From a biblical perspective and by contrast, the Hand and Arm of the Lord is for sure, lengthy, and is absolute power and strength.
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God, to help us and to fight our battles. And the people were strengthened by the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. (2 Chr. 32:8)
Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear. (Is. 59:1)
Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. (Ps. 98:1)
The Second Vision
The second vision confirmed what happens when the powerful Arm of the Lord is at work. These beings dressed in deep black represent beings of darkness and are the antithesis to the righteousness, purity and holiness of the white Light: Christ. They are spiritual beings that work in the lower atmospheres of the world. A spiritual world that takes expression in the natural and in people who often do not suspect that they are being manipulated, robbed and drained of light and life. I have been shown this more than once, sadly. But faith and belief in Jesus Christ, keeping GOD’S commandments and prayer is very effective to ward off these dark spirits. And yet sometimes, often, when people have entertained these influences, their minds and hearts become quite hardened and darkened. Consequently, it is more difficult for them to receive the Light that would cast these ‘things’ out and off. But most definitely never impossible with GOD! (Mat. 17:14-20; Lk. 10:19; Mat. 19:26)
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Eph. 6:12)
We are living in a prophetic time when the Prince of the power of the air and his minions are increasingly intensifying their assaults on Believers. (Rev. 12:12) And things on this planet, as we know, will get much worse before they get much better. One need only to observe what is increasingly and unprecedently shaping up in this fallen world during these latter days…. So. Church! It’s time to get real! It’s time to turn away from self and sin and take hold of the Hand and Arm of Him who has been given all power and authority in heaven and on earth: the Lord Jesus Christ, that awesome, awesome, redeeming Light of the world. (Mat. 28:18-20) The One who overcame darkness on our behalf with His finished works on the Cross! The One who sits on the Right Hand of GOD! Praise GOD and thank you Lord.
Blotting out the handwriting of Ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and He took it out of the way. (Means that the penalty of the Mosaic law and its decrees was removed. I am hearing: Everything! That is to say: ‘every’ ‘thing’, even above and beyond the law, has been taken out of the way by the Lord’s sacrifice) having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. (Col. 2:14-15)
But this Man, (Jesus) after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. (Heb. 10:12-13)
Watch what the Lord can and will do! Be convinced of His authority and believe the truth of His Word. Be strengthened in the Spirit of His power and might!
