Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Recently I heard the Lord say to me that He has stepped in. Now as you read the Word of the Lord below from the book of Daniel I pray that you will see by the Spirit that which the Lord has given you the authority to defeat. Where any of these issues represented arise, you will take a stand so that nothing will hinder you in this season. This is truly a season of divine intervention.
The scripture is taken from Daniel Chapter 7:
Daniel 7:1-8 1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts.[a]
2 Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
5 “And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
6 “After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
7 “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
Daniel was a man that received revelation from God. I say this because when I read this before the Lord, I heard Him say that the book of Daniel is a prophetic book that can be interpreted in any stage of our life. The Holy Spirit then granted me understand as to what it means for the now.
The Four Winds
The four winds represent the power of God which has been released to judge the earth. It is very important at this moment to know when to cry out for mercy. The combination of the winds, when you get the interpretation of it, is the very life and strength of God coming to the earth to judge the sin nature. The sea represents where the sinful nature is hidden. The four winds of God can also represent our Lord Jesus Christ who came to this earth to redeem mankind. The spirit of the Lord began to reveal to me that we are to pray strategically in this season and hour.
Prayer Point: Use the four winds to come against these things
First we see God show Daniel the lion. This represents long standing issues in your family. We need to contend and pray because God has judged that which represents the Lion. The lion was created by God and when you read Isaiah 11:6-8 it says the lamb will dwell with the lion. In this world there are some things that need to co-exist with us because they have a purpose. What the enemy does however is to twist and alter the personality of that thing. The lion is a perversion of that which was meant to provide discipline, correction and be part of our existence and strength. The Holy Spirit began to open my eyes to the fact that the lion represents a twisted type of authority, leadership and rulership that brings a stronghold into the family bloodline.
The stronghold in the family history comes from a particular issue and pattern in life never being dealt with. It also comes through an act that was necessary in the family bloodline but was twisted to suit a person or a place and then later ignored. So it is empowered, grows wings and begins to monitor generations in the family line.
When a person is coming into that place of increase, this thing is able to come and monitor the boundaries to hinder them from moving forward. It becomes almost like a curse in one’s life that is able to move from one generation to another. The thing that we were meant to co-exist with has now become a stronghold and a hindrance.
The wings represent something that is able to swiftly affect every area of your life. Many people have been dealing with strongholds and cycles in their lives. These strongholds have limited their movement and destiny, monitoring from all angles of life.
Then Daniel saw that the wings had been pulled out; that he stood like a man and the heart of man was put inside of it. I heard God say that the lion has been tamed because God is a God of the heart. This is something where God has put his heart into a situation, so that He can monitor it and ensure that it no longer rules over His people.
Identify things that are still pending in your family line and deal with it.
For some it may be sickness, divorce, poverty; Ask God to judge the situation for you.
The next one is the bear. As I continued to sit with the Lord on this scripture, He began to open my eyes the interpretation of the bear. The bear represents the sin nature and habits that we wrestle with. A characteristic of the bear is that it hibernates and then as we feel we have dealt with a habit properly, it rises up again. It operates through things such as hidden offenses that come out of hibernation to wrestle with you and take you down at the point of harvest.
And when it comes up again it begins to devour the anointing that you have stored and the things that you have prepared. It seems begins to deplete who you are. It causes the Body of Christ to not rise up in the strength that they could.
Lay down all bitterness and unforgiveness; Ask God to cleanse your waters
Recognise this theft and tell the Lord that you want what was stolen from you back now in Jesus Name.
The next one is the Leopard. The leopard is a beautiful animal and I feel that the Spirit of the Lord began to speak to me about this animal in particular. It is slender, elegant, quick and swift. The Lord began to speak to me about the unfinished product. There are some things that we have not allowed to take its course or to mature.
Often we can see a movement, an anointing, an individual operating in a particular gift. Because some of the people in that environment have lost their cutting edge, they quickly invite and begin to court the beauty of the thing.
They admire and promote the beauty of the anointing; the beauty of the business; the beauty of the person before it’s time. By bringing it in prematurely, the leopard begins to grow different heads; different ideas and revelations. Its pride brings a snare and a trap and pollutes the anointing. It begins to operate out of its own speed and elegance and not out of humility and submission. It almost begins to bring words against the body of Christ.
The scripture comes to mind to not lay hands quickly on people [1 Timothy 5:22]. I believe that the Spirit of the Lord is saying in this season, “Watch and see fruit”. That we should nurture beauty, the sweetness, the agility of the anointing, and that the fathers and mothers need to be around, to be firm until the beauty and glory of the Lord is fully released from them.
The Leopard was an animal that were normally trophies of kings because of its rarity. The Lord says He is raising up people with anointing that also will be able to go into the secular arena and stand out. A uniqueness of the anointing and their personality will cause them to be able to access many realms and many kingdoms.
Deliver us from whence we have been polluted
Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit let the horns of the leopard be removed
The Dreadful Beast
The fourth beast was horrible. It represents the strongholds that people have accumulated since they became Christians. It represents things that they have been wrestling with habits; people; sexualities, different sorts of lack and diseases. It is fierce, persistent and intentional and is dedicated to its cause to ensure that people never go to the next level. The Lord knows that in this season there are so many people weary of the onslaught, but the Lord says to tell everyone that He has stepped in. As I kept praying before the Lord, He kept saying that He has stepped in.
Then He gave me Songs of Solomon Chapter 3 that the bride got up to seek the One she loves. He kept saying for the Body of Christ to awaken in Him; in our understanding of Him, how we are to seek Him and to seek Him for what we are to do. That we should not to seek Him in our own strength, ideas and in our own hurts, the different ideas that has come into the body of Christ, that political spirit. There needs to be the structures in place to remove the politics; the godly structures that are required for His voice to be heard clearly.
I hear the voice of the Lord keep saying that this is a season of breakthrough, because He has stepped in, to help people do what many could not do themselves. His mercy, His love and His compassion has stepped in. So arise for the Lord says He is exalted above the nations [Psalms 46:10]. The nations represent the things that you rule over; your marriages, your finances, your ministry, your businesses. We are called as children of God to subdue the earth; to increase and multiply. The Body of Christ is coming to that season in which Jesus will be exalted in all that we represent.
Break the sound of defeat and refuse those word of limitation
Stop begging and claim what is yours! A new sound! Shout your victory!
May the Lord bless you and give you a deeper understanding into this prophetic word.
