Exposing and Breaking the Power of Leviathan
I felt that it was important to share this key word from the Lord with you.
I had a dream and in it I suddenly found myself in the house of a pastor and his wife. When I got to their home the pastor’s wife was sitting reading something quite important and she got up and was keen to show me the house and in particular how big it was. When I looked at it, I commended how big the inside of the house was with so many different rooms. I then realised that they were tenants and did not own the house. This surprised me because of how big the inside of the house was.
The scene then moved and I came to a student studying outside. I know this person to be an incredible music writer and I say that he was a student because in the dream he appeared to one who was very keen to learn and he had vast resources, restaurants, land etc – he owned it all and was looking for people to run things for him.
The scene moved on again and I saw a very big field, cleared and the land looked very fertile indeed. Although it appeared there were no gates hindering anyone from getting onto the field, no-one had gone to plant Yet as we watched the land we saw some incredibly large snakes, pythons, big, small, slender all sorts of snakes on it. They literally were the reason why people were not able to take the fulness.
Although the snakes did not cover the whole ground you had to be wise to outmanoeuvre them.
We also noticed a stick on the ground and felt to wield it as a weapon to deal with the snakes. Yet, when we touched the stick we saw that it had become a root and if wielded it would open up something because the stick had been distorted and the snakes were lying upon it. We recognised that there was a legal ground of misunderstanding and misrepresentation where the stick had been wielded unnecessarily and that consequently there was a legal ground and a judgment there.
We knew that it would need great skill to wield the stick. And as I stood there with the man watching we felt to stomp our feet, Micah 4 and realised that we needed to release a sound because certain animals perceive sound as threats and become vulnerable. Saints it is about releasing a new sound.
Going in the opposite spirit and releasing a fresh wave of love and understanding. So much so that when people expect threat you turn the other cheek. New steps need to be heard. Instead of the obvious weapon to attack use a new sound and God’s Kingdom will reign. Matthew 5:39
As I prayed into this dream I knew that it was for the body of Christ because 2014 is declared prophetically the year of “the open door”. I knew that as we are entering into this Jewish new year The Lord wanted to highlight why to some it seemed like the doors were open yet they were not able to get through fully to possess.
Looking more closely at the three scenes of the dream then.
First the the scene with the pastor and his wife. The pastor’s first name means “wealthy guardian” and his second name means “determined protector”. In effect, he is chosen and provided for to be a protector of God’s people but his house was owned by the council which represents the political spirit and he was bound by that spirit. He had vast insight but because he was a tenant he could be evicted from what he and his wife were showing off as their own.
So although these were well meaning people with good intentions and godly ideas they are so bound by the political spirit that they have the depth but not the width and so were not growing. They had all the necessary departments but were bound by spirits of politics and religion. They were afraid to step into what they had been given and so they were playing it safe.
Second the scene with the student whose studies were outside because having been liberated to experience the presence of God he was teachable and still learning and prospering. He had it all but was still a student. Psalm 72.
Because he had a kingdom perspective, he had a kingdom rather than a house. So his church was not in a building – he acquired so much and was looking for people to help him run it. He had willed himself to learn and so was always young, vibrant and green. Psalm 92.
The third scene was the open door – the vast land. The serpents on the land signify
misrepresentation, miscommunication, misunderstanding and distractions.
The python squeezed the life out of anyone because it was positioned in the valley part of the field.
So although the doors were open anyone that hit a pothole or curve would have life squeezed out of them by the python. When it had depleted the person’s strength they would want to give up because at the same time the other snakes were biting them.
The smaller snakes were the most dangerous because they were doing the biting. Whenever a person sought to step into a different place something of the past such as a distraction or an old wound came to bite and to affect their relationships. It would then deceive and the deception would come in without the people knowing that they were deceived. Indeed some the intercessors that are skilful were distracted by pride and fighting for position.
Then I also saw different individuals that had the strength and were walking among the serpents once and for all removing that which had been miscommunicated. Now the key thing that the enemy had been using was twisted words but I saw these individuals using grace, knowledge and wisdom to outmanoeuvre the serpents and what had been going on.
The intention of the serpents was to cause people to be so worn out and confused that they would be desensitised and not know how to pray for any issues in front of them.
Hear this saints. You have the strength inside of you. Begin to pray in tongues. Bind and loose and ask God for the wisdom to outmanoeuvre. Receive the strength and grace to walk through this new door. Take a risk. The Lord, the King is in the field and everything that needs to move will move.
Many doors are open and there are many new relationships. Yet the whispers, the assumptions, the misrepresentations, the misunderstandings, the control, the competition, the jealousies and the envies – the spirit of the serpent are causing many not to see fruit.
The King is in the field and He has come to help to clear out. Clear out and advance. The King is in the field with His people. Let Jesus walk you through to Your victory. The Lord bless you with the spirit of might to advance.
