The following article - a prophetic word - was written by my friend Sonya.
Please take heed to what I am about to write. These are not words to scare you but to encourage you during this season. There is a time in the near future where God is going to reveal Himself in a new way. This is a strategic move on His part to usher in His Glory. However, if you are familiar with how God works; He does things in His own way and never how we could fathom in our own minds. What will seem disconcerting to the world will not be so for the Body of Christ.
Something happened on my parent’s property yesterday which was a strong warning from God. I woke up this morning with the lamp shaking. As soon as I got out of bed the lamp stopped shaking and the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance the events of yesterday. I will share with you what happened.
My parents have a lake in their backyard. Since the springtime there has been a problem with many people from a neighboring subdivision who come through the yard of a woman who is renting a house. She gave them permission to cut through her yard because she does not own the property she is renting, nor does she own my parent’s property where the lake is located. People have been coming on a regular basis to fish and walk their dogs on the property. They leave behind trash and doggie “stuff”.
Initially, my parents had put up no trespassing signs but they were torn down. My parents have not really taken active steps to combat this problem because they are not here a lot. However, since I have been here it has irritated me because of the privacy issue as well as knowing these people do not have a right to be on my parent’s property. So, yesterday I decided to confront the people and let them know.
The first person I informed was a teenage boy and he stated he was not aware that he could not fish there. I told him to get off the property since I had now given him the information. However, later the boy came back with a group of friends as if I had not told him anything but went down further onto someone else’s property. My brother, who is visiting went into the backyard and stood there to present an authoritative presence and they left.
Later, I told a man who was with his son that the property was privately owned and he needed to leave the property. He became very angry and stated no one had told him that he could not fish there. I proceeded to let him know that no trespassing signs had been placed there before but people chose to ignore them. However, since I was telling him then, he should abide by my request. He asked me if I owned the house and I told him no but my father did. When I said that then he picked up his son and left. I then told my father about the incidents of the day when he returned home from work. He proceeded to inform me that it was time to put the signs back up and take action to find a person to put up a fence.
This is my interpretation of the events which happened to me. God is saying that many of us have tolerated the enemy invading our territory in our lives and in America. We have not taken authority to tell the enemy that he has no right to be on our property and it is now time for him to go. By taking authority given to us by Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20), we can know that we have a protection from our Father in Heaven. As we go before the Lord in prayer and begin to declare that the enemy be removed from our land then God will spiritually put up “Do Not Trespass” signs and fences to prevent the enemy from coming back. Having an understanding of this for the season which is coming upon us is crucial. We need to pray over our physical bodies, our minds, our families, our finances, our health, the lost souls, the nations, our children, etc. because the enemy has been wreaking havoc for years and we have not taken the mindset that “enough is enough”.
We have authority in Jesus Christ and now is the time to arise and take the land. Move into the land and overcome the giants which seem to be overtaking you knowing that you already have the Victory through Jesus Christ.
ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.
And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising
Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures.
Matthew 28:18-20 (Amplified Bible)
Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).
Revelation 3:10-12 (Amplified Bible)
Because you have guarded and kept My word of patient endurance [have held fast the lesson of My patience with the expectant endurance that I give you], I also will keep you [safe] from the hour of trial (testing) which is coming on the whole world to try those who dwell upon the earth.
I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one may rob you and deprive you of your crown.
He who overcomes (is victorious), I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never be put out of it or go out of it, and I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven, and My own new name.
