Message:        The Sword of the Lord


In January 2007 the Lord gave me a very powerful revelation, which I would like to share with you, trusting that it will be a
strengthening to you as it is to me.

"THE SWORD OF THE LORD"

It started off with a dream in which the Holy Spirit gave me a deep teaching and understanding in my spirit of Jesus, being the
Living Word.  He expounded on the oneness of the Lord with His Word, which is the Light of men.  He also made known to me
that the Word is full of grace and truth.   The teaching was written into my heart in a way that I cannot put in words and when I
woke up, I realized that it was John 1.

We all know that this is the Hebraic Year of “The Sword of the Lord”, but as this Word is quick, and powerful, and sharper than
any two-edged sword it will first do the piercing in our own hearts- even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the
joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of our own hearts.

We have to HEAR the Word, meditate on it and let it be im-bedded in our spirit man. Now FAITH is produced and then we have
to SEE it and ENVISION the results.

Mark 4:24-25  "
And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and
unto you that hear shall more be given. For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken
even that which he hath.
" -  KJV

It is, as we worship Him in the Holy of holies, waiting on Him to kiss us with that Rhema Word of revelation in our spirit,
embracing this “sword”, to do its full work in us with razor-sharp precision, that it becomes the Prophetic DECLARA-TION on
our lips by which we bring worship and praise to our King, in great REJOICING, knowing that the Word we received in the
Throne room, will not return to Him void, but will accomplish that which He pleases and shall prosper in the thing whereto HE
sent it. (Isa 55:11).  So the important part is to PROPHESY AND DECLARE THE LIVING WORD OVER YOUR SITUATION AND
WORSHIP HIM IN HIGH PRAISES UNTIL THE MANIFESTATION THEREOF.  The key you have been waiting for to receive the
VICTORY in every situation, is REJOICING while you WAIT ON HIM in righteousness, while you remember Him in His ways! (Is.
64:4-6).

Isa 64:4-5  "
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O
God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh
righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways.
" - KJV

Your stepping stone over the river (from the wilderness into the promised land), into the manifestation, is to celebrate your
prophecies and promises. REJOICE IN GOD’S FAITHFULNESS TO BRING IT TO PASS.  I have to have my ears tuned in order
to receive the new sound from heaven at the gate of every new situation to do effective warfare.  Yesterday’s manna will not do.  
It has to be freshly released from heaven while I wait on HIM in WORSHIP.

As I treasure that Rhema Word in my spirit through MEDITATION, it strengthens me and becomes the Sword of the Spirit in a
warfare-battle which has already been won on Calvary and while I praise the Lord, rejoicing, with that prophetic Word in my
mouth, the written judgment is executed upon the high princes of darkness. (Ps.149 & Rev.12:11)

The season has changed from staking your claim for the future with a tent peg, to taking your inheritance in Kingly anointing
with the Sword of the Spirit, the living Word of God and lay hold of your promises.

Rev 19:10  "
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." - KJV
