Dear Overcoming Ones,
Today, I'm adding a couple of documents or links to the devotion. The names of God / Jesus are powerful weapons against our adversary. I want to encourage you to apply the names of God to the situations you or your loved ones are facing at this time.
This I know for certain, the Lords' heart is tender toward you today! He sees you, He knows exactly what obstacles, trails, fears, etc. are assaulting you and He has come to show Himself strong on your behalf.
In Love with the Almighty One,
Day 31 - Vision of Horns & Craftsmen
Spirit of the Lord Sets Up a Standard!
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. - Colossians 1:16 -17
A Vision of Horns and Craftsmen
Biblically this vision has dual meanings; First, the Almighty has and will always destroy the nations that come against Israel. Secondly, it represents the Church and how the enemy comes against us BUT the Spirit of God will raise up a mighty standard against the enemy.
Zechariah 1:18- 21 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were four horns And I said to the angel who talked with me, "What are these?" So he answered me, "These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.” Then the LORD showed me, four craftsmen. And I said, "What are these coming to do?" So he said, "These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could lift up his head; but the craftsmen are coming to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the nations that lifted up their horn against the land of Judah to scatter it."
The Horns Represent the Enemy
- Horn: of strength; figuratively power:(often refers to nations)
- Scatter: to toss about; to scatter; throw in various random directions.
The Craftsmen Represent the Spirit
- Fray: to tremble, quake, move about, be afraid, be startled, be terrified; skillful to destroy (warriors)
- Cast: to throw, shoot, cast - to give thanks, laud, praise - to confess, confess (the name of God)
NOTICE: Praise is a weapon, it throws down and cast out the enemy.
In the Aaronic blessing we often focus on the blessing and face shining aspect of this prayer BUT the Lord told Aaron to PUT HIS NAME on the Children of Israel
Numbers 6:24-27 Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: "The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace." ‘"So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Comma Error - Hebrew Scholars say, the comma in this scripture is in the wrong place. The translation should when the enemy comes in, LIKE A FLOOD THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD LIFTS UP A STANDARD AGAINST HIM, Amen!
Isaiah 59:19 So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in, like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.
Word of the Lord
As I was with the Children of Israel so I am with you, says the Lord. When the horn of the enemy rises against you to silence your voice and keep you from moving forward I release My Spirit to raise up a standard against him. I release My craftsmen (angels) to cast out, to throw down every horn that rises against you to scatter you and to wear you down. Run into My Name (s) release them over your life situations and watch the enemy fall. Selah, Amen!
Open our eyes, Lord!
Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things out of your law.- Psalms 119:18 (WEB)
What does the Bible say? The Name (s) of the Lord is a strong tower against the enemy!
Read: Psalms 61:3 & Proverbs 18:10
Action: Put the names of God upon you, your family, upon your life situations…use the names of God as a strong tower against your enemies.
Decree: The Name (s) of the Lord is a strong tower and I run into it… for safety, for healing, for financial breakthrough, for whatever I need!
