Prepare for War!

The sounds of war are getting louder that  it’s heard and echoed on all four corners of the globe. From where I am, even the unconcerned are hearing the sound and wondering. This brings to remembrance the short but vivid dream I had sometime in October 2010.

In the dream I was watching a scene from the movie “Kingdom of Heaven”.  The scene was the fiercest and bloodiest encounter between the forces of Jerusalem led by Balian and the Saracens under Saladin. The scene ended and I removed the disc from the player. Alas!, the title of the movie printed boldly on the disc was not “Kingdom of Heaven” but “Prepare for War!”

The dream was a big question to me as I was not yet fully aware of the gift that the Father has given me; so I was not also wired to world events and the end times. Since I was also battling with my personal circumstances, I thought that the dream was about me.

As I poured myself into praying and the reading of the Word I saw the Scripture that exactly tells the same, “Prepare for War!”

Joel 3:9 (NKJV)

Proclaim this among the nations:
“Prepare for war!
Wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near,
Let them come up.

A Side Note: Around the time I had the above dream, the Lord also gave me a dream which I knew without a doubt when I woke up, was the beginning of a new season in my life. Then the Lord began giving me words, visions and dreams which became frequent beginning in January 2011. The revelations were personal, about the Church and about Israel. On the third week of January 2011 after my first attendance at the weekly prayer and intercession of the ‘Intercessors for Israel,’ the Father gave me a vivid dream calling the Christian Church to pray for and stand with Israel; thus, began my journey into the end times, Israel and the world.

On January 18, 2012, I had another vivid dream of a war involving Iran. I wrote about the dream in an article here: A Vivid Dream: Sanctions on Iran Didn’t Work, So War Broke Out.

In the early morning on March 15 this year the Lord woke me up with “Psalm 83” on my lips. I know what Psalm 83 is and so I asked the Lord what about it? His answer was quick as I heard loud and clear in my spirit, “It’s about time for Psalm 83.”

Psalm 83 (NKJV)

Prayer to Frustrate Conspiracy Against Israel

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph

Do not keep silent, O God!

Do not hold Your peace,
And do not be still, O God!
For behold, Your enemies make a tumult;
And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people,
And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation,
That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”

For they have consulted together with one consent;
They form a confederacy against You:
The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab and the Hagrites;
Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Assyria also has joined with them;
They have helped the children of Lot. Selah

Deal with them as with Midian,
As with Sisera,
As with Jabin at the Brook Kishon,
10 Who perished at En Dor,
Who became as refuse on the earth.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb,
Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 Who said, “Let us take for ourselves
The pastures of God for a possession.”

13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust,
Like the chaff before the wind!
14 As the fire burns the woods,
And as the flame sets the mountains on fire,
15 So pursue them with Your tempest,
And frighten them with Your storm.
16 Fill their faces with shame,
That they may seek Your name, O Lord.
17 Let them be confounded and dismayed forever;
Yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
18 That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

About a week ago the Lord again woke me up at 3:00 a.m. with this message: “The bloodbath in Egypt will continue as they crack down the Muslim Brotherhood.”

I am not a political or war analyst but I am inclined to believe that President Obama, an avid supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood is keen on striking Syria to give the latter a boost after its fall in Egypt. So everyone watching the news knows that war is coming. President Bashar Al-Assad vows to retaliate against Israel if America attacks his embattled nation. Iran’s leaders vowed that if the West attacks Syria, it will be the end of Israel. All of Israel’s enemies declared that one false move by America, the entire Middle East will explode and the Zionist regime will be no more. Those speeches indeed reflect what Psalm 83 speaks about.

If all these rumors of war are the ones leading to Psalm 83 that the Holy Spirit intimated as about to take place, then, let us lift up our prayers together that the Name of the Lord God be glorified and the nations will know that He alone is the Most High over all the earth as He confounds His enemies and frustrates their plans. Let us pray the prayer of Asaph in Psalm 83.

Let us fix our eyes on our wonderful Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach that we may stand in the days of troubles. As for those who have not given their lives to Him, now is the time to do it. Repent and be saved for time is running short.

Love in Yeshua,

Cynthia

Peace, Be Still! Know that I AM God

Vision: 3:58 p.m.

I closed my eyes and told myself to be still in the Lord. I recited and meditated, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul…”

While meditating on the Word and focusing my thoughts on the Lord, I drifted into a vision. I saw and heard myself talking to a child, telling her to be quiet and listen. Then I saw the Lord as He held the hands of a little child (I knew that the child was me), looked at her reassuringly, while I heard myself said to the child I spoke to, “Heard the sound of heaven’s bells?” My spirit heard a beautiful sound that I knew was from heaven though I didn’t hear it with my ears.

I snapped awake. Peace flooded my troubled soul.

I have struggled and my mind could not rest as I keep remembering the things I thought I did wrong to someone. All this gift of discernment, seeing beyond and hearing things in the spirit sometimes make me shudder as it did recently. It is especially difficult when the revelation affects someone close to my heart. The spiritual person in me knows the voice of the Spirit and I cannot resist what He shows me and tells me to do. The natural man, however, is resistant and fearful. In this incident I obeyed the Lord and did what the Spirit commanded me to do, that is, to speak of what I saw and heard from the Lord. I have no doubt that I did the right thing. But the natural person remains opposed to what I have done. I struggled and battled with the conflicting thoughts between my spirit and my flesh.

The fearful natural person that I am keeps telling me to hide and quit, stay away from the things of the spirit and go, find a normal life to live. This war within has caused me much strain. The natural seemed to have gotten an upper hand as I kept telling the Lord that it must have been better if I just lived my life quietly with my children; it would have been better if I would not be involved with anybody and let me see anything I have no pleasure of seeing; and yes, I said I’d quit all this prophetic ministry, get out of everybody’s way and move on with no one but the Lord alone.

My mind was in this state of turmoil when the Lord gave me His word, “Peace, be still! Know that I AM God.” It was then that I told myself to be still in the Lord and recited and meditated those verses above from Psalm 23. Such message from the Lord and the vision are His wonderful way of pacifying my troubled heart and mind.

To my dear friend whom I have caused much trouble by the things I saw and shared with, thank you for understanding. I know you have been so affected but I will not be a true friend to you if I kept them to myself. If anything happens to you because I did not tell you those things you are unaware of, I may not be able to forgive myself, and worse, I may indeed quit.

Proverbs 27:6

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Love in Yeshua,
