Day 36 – Vengeance Upon the Midianites
Midianite spirit messes with our harvest, our finances, fullness in our lives from coming forward.
Number 31:2 "Take full vengeance for the sons of Israel on the Midianites; afterward you will be gathered to your people."
Read Judges 6-7
Judges 6:1-2Then the sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD gave them into the hands of Midian seven years. The power of Midian prevailed against Israel. Because of Midian the sons of Israel made for themselves the dens which were in the mountains and the caves and the strongholds.
As I was praying and searching my data base for information on the Midianite spirit I came across this teaching Chuck Pierce sent out some years ago…I believe it is true today and the Lord wants us to gain revelation into how this spirit works in our lives.
Breaking the Power of the Midianite Spirit that Robs Your Harvest:
ENTERING the Season of ONE becoming 1,000! By Chuck D. Pierce
The Lord is developing a harvest mentality in us as we moveforward… Isaiah 60, especially verses 18-22, Those verses say: “Violence shall no more be heard in your land, nor devastation or destruction within your borders, but you shall call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. The sun shall no more be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you, but the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory and your beauty. Your sun shall no more go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. Your people also shall all be [uncompromisingly and consistently] righteous; they shall possess the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified. The least one shall become a thousand [a clan], and the small one a strong nation. I, the Lord, will hasten it in its [appointed] time.” (AMP)
What spoke to me for you was: A little one shall become a thousand! This means that there shall be a great increase, as if ONE or the SMALLEST of something given or begun shall be multiplied to a thousand. “I the LORD will Hasten it in its Appointed Time!” Expect changes and suddenlies in your life. Open your eyes to see these as they are occurring around you.
Ask the Lord to make you able to SEE the miracles that He is doing in your atmosphere, workplace, and home. There is a due time or proper time for things to happen in our lives. There is a concept that as we pray and trust, the Lord is mounting or summing up our prayers. The perfect time becomes 'the fullness of time’ (Gal. 4:4) and what we have invested is poured out in a multiplied form. If we keep preparing and going through the trials that are in our lives by faith, eventually the blessings of God overtake us.
1. Without revelation from the Throne Room, we are weak, incapable of breaking loose what God has for us in our strength, and limited to our own wisdom.
2. He does not come when everything is at peace, perfect and quiet, and all our circumstances are fully taken care of.
3. He visits at His favorable time in our lives when we are responding by faith. A small amount of faith (mustard-seed quantity) can cause the God of the Universe to visit us. He can birth a nation in a day. He can change your circumstances in a day. The response of faith to God by man can cause a “suddenly” to occur.
4. Many are being trained to enter into this Harvest. Look at your circumstances and testings as a catalyst in the hands of a Holy God to develop an overcoming testimony.
In due time, the promise and manifestation of His will shall be hastened and 'He that shall come, will come, and will not tarry' (Heb10:37). A New Day is Dawning! This is a TIME to AWAKEN the Present TRUTH that Harvest is all Around Us!
God always has a remnant that arises and SEES before the whole of His people begin to perceive the changes that are occurring. We like to think that you are a part of this prophetic remnant that the Lord is raising up this hour. During this time there is a DIVINE SHIFT that is occurring with our mind and heart. We are being transformed or metamorphosised to reflect His will and thinking in the earth. We are breaking out of the conformity or blueprint of the prince of the power of the air, the god of this world (Rom 12:1- 2).
Your mind should be redeveloped and realigning in the following areas of: COVENANT, WORSHIP, WARFARE, and HARVEST. An Anointing is Stirring to Break the Yoke that has ROBBED our FUTURE!!
Isaiah 10:24-27 says, “Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts, ‘O My people who dwell in Zion, do not fear the Assyrian who strikes you with the rod and lifts up his staff against you, the way Egypt did. For in a very little while My indignation against you will be spent and My anger will be directed to their destruction.’ The LORD of hosts will arouse a scourge against him like the slaughter of MIDIAN at the rock of Oreb; and His staff will be over the sea and He will lift it up the way He did in Egypt . So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of the anointing!”
To anoint means to rub, smear or grow fat. The anointing is the gift of the Holy Spirit to aid us in truth, revelation and power. The anointing washes and secures the moisture of your body so it does not evaporate in times of heat. Biblically, the anointing is linked with the expression of joy and counteracts the power of grief. The anointing is known as the oil of healing. To be anointed is to be set aside for service in a wonderful, fragrant way. The Lord is ANOINTING YOUR SHIELD FOR VICTORY!
Remove the Trauma of The Midianites - The Harvest Robbers! Notice in the above scripture passage, the Midianites are referenced. There will be an anointing that overcomes the Midianites. Midian means “strife”! Midian was a son of Abraham birthed outside of the promise. This tribe intermingled with Ishmael. This was the tribe that brought Joseph to Egypt and traded him. Moses escaped from Egypt and found refuge with the Midianites, so there a redeeming purpose in this tribe.
However, we must be aware that this spirit represents a seduction to remove you from your path of prosperity. Midian was aligned with Balaam to seduce God’s people. This is a desert spirit that did not overcome and rule but only robbed at the time of prosperity. See Judges 6 and 7. That is usually what happens. Right when we are on the verge of breakthrough, strife and confusion hit and we lose the increase that was planned.
MIDIAN-How to Turn the Robbing Force of your Life! Don’t war from your strength. Hear the voice of the Lord, agree with His decree and speak forth His report and not what the enemy is saying! Don’t keep second guessing the Lord! He will make a FULL end of your enemies! Do not be afraid to face the structure that has produced hard labor in your life! Gideon was threshing wheat in a wine press.
Ask the Lord to reposition you, break your fear, and secure your harvest. Many need to be repositioned for increase! The Lord is releasing grace to bring a new dimension of grace. Be willing to confront that which has held you in stress and strife. Let the Spirit of God work in your life.
Yield to HIM! Trust Him to complete His perfect work in you so He can then focus on your enemies! (Ps. 138). Wait for the Lord to stir up a strategy to smite your Midian robbers! (Judges 7:24).
Many of you are carrying heavy burdens and unnecessary weights on your shoulders. Watch the burden on your shoulders lift! Grow FAT in the anointing and watch the yoke around your neck break! Watch the anointing break the enemy’s power around you. When the anointing is released in you, you will walk in new favor.
RECEIVE a Fresh Anointing that is AVAILABLE TODAY! This anointing which is already resident within you will break the Midian yoke! Leave the trauma of the past behind! Begin new and fresh as the sun arises upon you. Let the Lord deal with every stronghold that has developed against your supply line!
ARISE and SHINE! Rise from depression and oppression that has held you captive. Catch a NEW WAVE of Holy Spirit! Come alive and AWAKEN to His Best Purpose!
Declare the seeds that you have sown in the past are getting ready to sprout and manifest an INCREASE! Seeds may lay dormant, but the Lord has a time to bring the fruit to fullness!
Declare that principle of restoration over your seed. If something has been stolen then declare that there will be a two-fold, four-fold, or seven-fold return. We are becoming TRIUMPHANT over FAILURE!
This is a season that the anointing can break the power of robbing spirits and cause us to be favored to receive. ONE CAN BECOME 1,000! We find in Isaiah 60 that the Midianite spirit can be overcome and produce a blessing. The Midianite camels can come into your desert place and instead of robbing you, bring you your future!
Victory Is at hand,
