The Lord God Almighty is forming a new “Warfare Counsel.” The said counsel will consist of hearty, valiant, military-minded soldiers of the Most High. The mission, should you decide to accept it, is to dismantle evil that has taken up residence in wicked people, to pull down the strong holds of the devil, to render him furious, envious, confused, baffled, and unprepared for the force of this new wave of holy warriors who are marching with holy orders to destroy the works of the devil in ways that have never been accomplished before. We shall, in the awareness from God, be mindful that not all unbelievers will take heed to the gospel truth but we shall gain those who are destined by Almighty God to reap of His liberties. God is sounding a clarion call for the best of His faithful servants to claim the ground on which we walk for God has given it to us.
Remember that all of the children of Israel left Egypt with Moses but all didn’t enter the Promised Land. We are children of promise, and more than conquerors if we fear God and keep His commandments. Let us allow our Father God to purge us so that we can be fit for our Master’s use. People are dying, and are dead in the spirit realm. Their allegiance is to Satan. Many are crying out to be rescued but they find it challenging to trust because they have been so often disappointed by ungodly people. And many of those ungodly people were, and are “Christians.”
We, of the Warfare Counsel, are appointed to prove to the unbelievers that our Almighty Father God can indeed be trusted. It is His power through us that will shake the foundations of the kingdom of Satan. We shall, through the power of God, pull people from the gates of hell because we know that the gates of hell shall not prevail against our Rock, Christ Jesus! Father God, please endow us, equip us, certify us, justify us, defend us, and channel through us so that we can fearlessly battle the forces of evil as the valiant conquerors that You have anointed us to be!
God will use us to expose the false people who spread the doctrines of devils. We will call them out for who they are, and urge them to forsake sinful practices or receive the wrath of God in doses that will bring them to their knees or turn them further from Almighty God. They will either agree or flee. God will deal with the double-minded; choose life or death will be the command in clear undeniable ways. The Word of God says in 1 Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him…” We know what happened to the prophets of Baal!
We’ll minister to Ku Klux Klan members, Mafia participants, Muslims, those consumed by hatred of God, pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers, and witchcraft participants. And yes, we’ll minister to those who are “religious,” who falsely believe that they are saved! We’ll also minister to generals, captains, sergeants, and privates in Satan’s army. The love and power of God in us will love the hell out of some of them! The Lord will dispatch His best military leaders and servants of every rank and class to wreak havoc in the kingdom of Satan. The Lord will topple his empires, shame his minions, tame his aggression, subdue mightily throughout his ranks, and deliver crushing blows of defeat to Satan’s wicked strong holds.
God is our fortress, our bulwark, a man of war (Exodus 15:3), and a consuming fire. He’s been mocked, ridiculed, ignored and disrespected. Woe unto all who choose to remain His enemies. A new day is dawning in the spirit realm - a day of vindication.
It is harvest time for the most faithful! God has destined this “hour” where more manifestations will appear to prove that there is a distinction between us, and those who follow the devil. Remember in the book of Exodus it says, “And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.” (Exodus 8:23) and the Word says, “…and when I see the blood, I will pass over you,…” (Exodus 12:13).
The days of business as usual have come to a halt. God’s Word states, “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camps, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.” (Exodus 32:26).
The status quo journey is over. There is too much at stake. Souls are increasingly in danger of the lake of fire. Such souls dwell in misery, in distress, in sorrow, in pain, in fear, and in hopelessness. I call out for God’s Warfare Counsel. The Spirit of the Living God lives inside of us. Due time has come to pour it out like rivers of living water to quench the thirst of the desperate, forlorn, and dejected. They hunger for the richness of Almighty God.
We must, through Christ, deliver holiness to run through their veins as it does ours. We must march to the heartbeat of our Drummer, God! We must abundantly share the Lamb of God by our allegiance to His Word. We are in God’s army. We cannot faint. We must lay aside every weight and remain close to the storehouse to obtain orders and to reload our spiritual weapons. We must forge ahead and press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. We must zero in on our targets with precision, and we must fight against the ”demons of religion.” Jesus was crucified by the chief priests,…(Luke 24:20). That “spirit of religion” is, in large part, responsible for the many spiritual casualties of war.
The “religious prudes” bring shame to God’s name and the mission of the pure full gospel. They position themselves proudly on their “thrones” of self-righteousness. They go to churches with ungodly hearts, and transmit their ungodly contagious “spiritual diseases.” Persecution is administered to the saints who righteously resist those who are “spiritually diseased.” Heavy doses of such persecution are given out regularly in countless houses of worship! And some of those “Christian” Pharisees dare partake of Holy Communion, the nerve! Religion is vain, and worthless if it doesn’t glorify our Father God, and get His holy work done!
I have signed up with the Warfare Counsel. My blood-bought name is on that dotted line. I’m with the “sons of Levi.” (Exodus 32:26). We must stay mindful that, yes, we are on a love mission, but love ain’t no wimp! That is why included in God’s Word we find stories about war, and the use of the rod such as when Jesus told Peter, “Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.” (Matthew 16:23), and righteous indignation as when Jesus turned over tables and seats in the temple (Mark 11:15-17), and mention of the whole armour (Ephesians 6). We wouldn’t need all of that if we weren’t at war! And the Word of God is “quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12). One great example of that is when Paul said to an unbeliever, “…O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?” - (The Acts 13:10).
Yet with all that occurred in the war realm, there is balance contained in the ways of God. Jesus sharply rebuked people still the Bible says that he is “meek and lowly in heart” (Matthew 11:29). And with all that Moses did to oppose the evil Pharaoh, the Word states about him, “Now the man Moses was very meek, above all men which were upon the face of the earth.” (Numbers 12:3). Pride is prevalent throughout our universe, and it dominates in the spirits of many “Christians.” It is a destructive force, as is all sin.
The anointing flows smoothly in pure vessels who are blameless and above reproach. Yes, we all sin and come short of God’s glory. But many sin and come short on the regular as a habitual practice with deliberation in frequency. And far too many in that posture carry the name of “Christian."
True warriors of God steadfastly submit to God to keep the power to resist the devil and having done all to stand!

This is a powerful testimony. I enjoyed the beginning and liked how you drew me in from the famous Mission Impossible line. You do a wonderful job of supporting your beliefs with the perfect scripture.
The only thing I might recommend would be to tighten it up a tad. You repeat the main message a few times. I fear the length may overwhelm some readers and then they might skim over some of your words which would be a shame.
I enjoy a piece that makes me stop and think about what I believe and what I intend to do about that belief. You definitely did that in this piece. I enjoyed the descriptions of Moses and the problems he faced on his journey. I never really stopped to think that not everyone who left with him on that mass exodus arrived at the Promised Land. That made me start thinking about how that would have grieved Moses. The guilt of losing many followers would be overwhelming for most men. The fact that Moses made it through those tough days just reinforces why God chose him. It also reminds me during my tough days that God chose me for a very particular reason as well. Thank you for that message, I really needed the reminder right now.
AMEN SANDRA!!! Thank you for this enriching article. Ps.33:11--The COUNSEL of THE LORD STANDS FOREVER, the plans of His heart TO ALL GENERATIONS.
