This is a series of three visions given to Jake Dominy, a member of our School of Prophesy. Jake also created a picture to represent the first of the three, which you will find at the end of this message.
Exodus 17: 8-16
I saw in the natural the wind blowing the trees this morning, and the sky dark, with very occasional sunshine.
I felt the Lord saying that there is a real spiritual storm brewing in the heavenlies, a major battle in heavenly places. And as I waited on the Lord I felt him liken this battle to the one against the Amalekites (Exodus 17: 8-16): when Moses was holding up his hands the Israelites were winning, but when his arms tired and he let them drop the Israelites started to lose. He needed support holding his hands up. I felt the Lord was saying that Moses holding his hands up was a symbol of three things. One is prayer and praise, another is that they point to the Lord as a prophetic symbol of victory, and thirdly it means that we must keep our minds and spirits focussed on things above and not on our current situation.
We must pray unceasingly for our leaders in the church and in the nation. We are their support. I saw that the more we prayed, the longer the sun shone, and as our leaders tired and we eased up on praying the darkness and storm clouds with stormy winds came. I felt the Lord say now is the time to pray and praise unceasingly and my name will be known in the land, and my glory will shine forth like the sun across this nation and all nations. I will break down some of the spiritual strongholds in the Earth; I am the Lord and the victory is mine. My name will be known and praised in all the Earth.
The second part of this came later. I saw the Lion of Judah, and standing behind him were defences: these defences were the angels, and behind the angels was God’s human army with full length shields and shining spears between the shields, at least 7 feet high. And behind that was a vast, vast army: some on horseback, and some foot soldiers. As the enemy drew close I heard the Lion roar “Now!” and as He roared the front few lines of the enemy were no more, through the sheer volume of the roar of the Lion.
But I also felt a warning in my spirit: the enemy will try to draw us out of our defensive position, with other spiritual distractions that seem right, but which give the enemy a chance to outflank us. We are to stand in defensive position, in anticipation and braced for the battle to come, not getting caught up in other things, holding up the arms of our leaders in prayer, looking to Heaven and praising God for His greatness and for the victory of the Cross. This is our position until the lion roars “Now!”
This picture roughly represents the prophecy I had, as close as I could get it. The circles of roman soldiers at the back are protecting the leaders holding the standards of the Lord. In front of that you have a double height of troops, standing on the shields of the lower soldiers. That would stretch miles and miles back. In front of them is the angel army as I saw them, then the Lion of Judah in front.
