Oh Church! My bride, My warrior bride! Wake up from your slumber. Arise, put on your armour, and take up your weapons! Shake off the dust, for you have lain dormant much too long! Awake My bride. Stand beside Me and with Me, your King, your Warrior King. Fight, for you are not as helpless as you think you are! Recognize your position in Me. Put on the shoes I have given you. You are clothed in My Righteousness and Strength. You reign alongside Me. I am in you and you are in Me. Live like it!
Stop cowering before a defeated enemy. He is nothing to you anymore! You have crossed over and you no longer belong in his kingdom. You belong to Me and you have entered My Kingdom. Live like it! My precious, cherished, warrior bride! Wake up now from your slumber and stand with Me, your Warrior King. You have more in number standing with you, than Satan could ever muster up behind him. Rise up and march forward! Do not fear, for I’m right here with you. As you stand with Me, I will be the One doing the fighting. Just stand and have courage. There is no weapon formed against you that can prosper! Take your stance and hold your ground! I have made you to overcome! Be strong in the storms you face, for the winds will subside, and you will advance! But you must stop cowering back from the storms. As you stand your ground, I will be your support and I will brace you against the winds of opposition you face. Rise up! Stand strong! You were created to be an overcomer, more than a conqueror! You were created to reign and rule with Me and through Me. Rise up! Start exercising your spiritual muscles again; they have been dormant much too long! Stay close to Me, for I will never leave you or forsake you. Keep your eyes on Me and follow My lead. If you look away, confusion enters, and you begin to stumble. Keep your eyes on Me and follow in My steps. Arise My warrior bride, My holy church. Take your stand with Me and advance, for I am leading the way to the victory that is already yours. Come, and do not be afraid, take your place next to Me. March forward with Me!
