THE ENEMY’S HAND HAS BEEN OVERTURNED!
As I was coming out of sleep this morning, I heard, “THE ENEMY’S HAND HAS BEEN OVERTURNED”! I got a quick vision of soil being tilled, or “turned-over”. The soil was rich and brown, and I saw a close-up of one of the furrows that had already been made in it. In that moment, I also felt as though new seed had already been planted. I felt the anticipation of this new seed coming to fruition! A fresh harvest!
Annually, farmers till weeds under, by turning the soil OVER. This kills the weeds and buries their seeds, inhibiting them from growing back. The Lord spoke to me in PAST TENSE when He said that the enemy’s hand has been overturned! This is important because it means we are not waiting for it … it has already happened! His crop of weeds has been buried and killed off! This is good news, people of God! It is finished!
Listen! Just yesterday, a friend shared a prophetic word about curses over America being broken. I truly believe THIS IS THAT – a time when the old weeds and seeds have been overturned and tilled under! I believe that judgements against us have been overturned. I believe this is a time when the curses that have already been broken start to manifest themselves as freedom from the chains of their bondage! I believe that this is a time that we will long remember – a time of the enemy’s hand being shown as having been lifted off of America and off all of our lives — individually and corporately!
The enemy has been buried!
I believe it is a TWO FOLD process:
- I believe, if we follow what God is saying, is that He – the God of all the universe – has buried the enemy … under the very soil that he was using to grow his crop of destruction!
Do you remember the story of Ai in Joshua 8:22? In this story, and I will paraphrase, the army of the city of Ai was led to believe it was chasing the Israelites out of town, when in fact, it was a holy-ghost setup and God turned the tables on Ai! The city’s army was sandwiched, and it fell into its own trap.
Do you see? God has turned the tables (and the soil!) on the enemy, just like He did at Ai! It may LOOK LIKE the enemy has the upper hand, even right now, this minute….but I believe God is only leading him on! I believe that you will see that what was trying to chase you will end up turning back on itself – creating chaos in the enemy’s camp for your victory! God has overturned the enemy’s hand!
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return (Galatians 6:7).” God cannot be mocked! That strong, leafy tree bough that was torn off by the high winds only LOOKS like it is still alive! It is indeed dead, feeding on itself and what little strength still remains. The enemy of our soul is exactly the same! Fear not for he is a defeated foe! “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32).”
A fresh crop is on the way!
- I felt as though new seed had been sown into already prepared soil, and the anticipation of the fresh crop was exhilarating!
You know all that heartache, sorrow, toil and pain you have gone through, maybe even as recently as yesterday? I believe it was preparing your soil, the soil of your heart, for the new seed and the fresh, victorious crop! All the pain, strife, division, anger and WARFARE that you have encountered has turned you into the warrior that the Lord always intended for you to be!
The rocks have been dug out of your soul. You have learned to overcome! You have learned to forgive, to submit, to follow and to lead! You are now a fully equipped soldier. Your soil has been prepared. Your heart is right, both with man and with God. You are ready to harvest the new, fresh crop!
What is this new, fresh harvest?
Amos 9:13 states, “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.”
We have seen the plowman. We have seen the reaper. We have seen the grape treaders and we have seen the one who sows the seed…but we have never seen the mountains drip with sweet wine, nor all the hills flow with it!
What does that look like, exactly? I would venture to say that no one really knows for sure, but we all will know by the Spirit – it is our NEW, FRESH HARVEST! It is something that we have NEVER seen before! It is something that is so new, and so fresh, that it will take our breath away, awestruck as we gaze upon its beauty!
I believe that each of us will know our fresh harvest when we get there, as it is revealed to us. It will be completely different from anything that we have experienced up until now. I will say this: I believe that you have been uniquely prepared for this moment, and it is upon us. Everything that you have been through has prepared you for this time in humanity’s history. You are uniquely qualified to fulfill this purpose. No one else has the calling that you do for such a time as this (Esther 4:14)!
God has saved the best wine for last! He did it at Cana (John 2:1-11) and He is doing it again. Get ready to drink deeply. His mountains are now dripping with it, and you will soon be flowing with it, too!
