The Bride of Messiah is called to wear combat boots! She is called to engage in spiritual warfare and be prepared unto holiness, for the return of her Bridegroom. The attributes of the Bride are:
1- She will know His Name
The Bride needs to know the Name of the Bridegroom:
"Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.” Isaiah 52:6
"Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him—his name is the LORD." Psalm 68:4
2- She will carry His sign of the Shabbats
“Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you." Exodus 31:13
3- She will have intimacy to know His heart
The Bride needs intimacy with the Bridegroom in order to know the heart of the Father.
"Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb." Revelation 21:9
Every day she needs to depend on the guidance of the Holy Spirit, on His glory, His pillar of cloud by day, and His pillar of Fire by night.
4- She will have authority to fight warfare and speak written judgments
We don't war from the earthly realm, but from the Heavenly realm!
“You are My club, a war weapon— with you I shatter nations, with you I destroy kingdoms." Jeremiah 51:20
5- She will know her position (what He has placed under her feet)
We, the Bride have been called to EXECUTE His anger in warfare!
“I have commanded My consecrated ones, I have even called My mighty warriors, My proudly exulting ones, to execute My anger.” Isaiah 13:3
The spirit of the Amalekites are in those who lack the fear of ADONAI
You may ask: "What is the Spirit of Amalek?”
In Jewish tradition, Amalek is pure evil. It is the spirit that inhabits those who lack the fear of ADONAI. Amalek is the power of darkness and evil in this world. Amalek is now at work in Russia.
The Lord will fight against the Amalekites forever. As He promised:
"ADONAI hath sworn, that he will have war with Amalek from generation to generation."
The Bride needs to be a powerful warrior, who will execute the written judgments and her AUTHORITY needs to be BOOSTED!
The Bride needs to be a powerful warrior, who will execute the written judgments and her AUTHORITY needs to be boosted by the knowledge of the Word! Therefore we need to memorize the Word.
“Take…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God” Ephesians 6:17
6- She will carry the FIRE (Fire of worship in Spirit and in Truth, and Restoration)
“Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. 6“He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6
7- She will walk in Holiness and Discernment (Discerning When to Engage in Warfare)
We must continually choose to walk in purity, in order to be the Bride that is dressed in Purity of Spirit, dressed in white as we continue to walk in the fullness of the Spirit with Him.
The marks of HOLINESS (separation from worldly things), LOVE (servanthood unto others), PRIESTHOOD (Understanding the priestly calling we have upon our lives), AUTHORITY AS A WARRIOR ,and ROYALTY (knowing who we are in YESHUA).
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
2 Timothy 1:7
The Bride watches first over her thoughts and prays:
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.” Philippians 4:8
8 - She is in Exile and will Cry for the Appointed Feasts looking at Zion
The heart of the Bride is also longing for the great Feasts, the Marriage of the Lamb.
She's in exile, but she has an understanding of the Feasts, and of the Commandments of ADONAI.
"In that day it will be said to Jerusalem:
“Do not be afraid, O Zion;
Do not let your hands fall limp.
17“The LORD your God is in your midst,
A victorious warrior.
He will exult over you with joy,
He will be quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
18“I will gather those who grieve about the appointed feasts—
They came from you, O Zion;
The reproach of exile is a burden on them.
19“Behold, I am going to deal at that time
With all your oppressors,
I will save the lame
And gather the outcast,
And I will turn their shame into praise and renown
In all the earth.
20“At that time I will bring you in,
Even at the time when I gather you together;
Indeed, I will give you renown and praise
Among all the peoples of the earth,
When I restore your fortunes before your eyes,”
Says the LORD." Zephaniah 3:16-20
Connection to Purim:
The Feast of Purim is coming up, and begins on Wednesday night, March 16th and continues through to Thursday, March 17th, 2022.
Just like in the days of Purim, where Queen Esther stood up for the Jewish People courageously, urging the people to a 3 day fast, and facing the enemy Haman with a divine strategy, we too are called to stand up courageously in our day against the same enemy of Persia: Amalek.
Israel was not rebirthed to be destroyed. We are called to use the weapon of the Word as a Sword!
For He Who promised is faithful!
He Who watches over Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep, but He is her Keeper, and shall watch over His Word to perform it! “Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1:12 In the same way that Esther fought for her people, we are called to fight for Israel at this time. Iran is about ready to attack us. But we need to intercede, just like Moses did for the people of Israel, when ADONAI was angry with the Israelites: “The LORD also said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and they are indeed a stiff-necked people. 10Now leave Me alone, so that My anger may burn against them and consume them. Then I will make you into a great nation.” 11But Moses sought the favor of the LORD his God, saying, “O LORD, why does Your anger burn against Your people, whom You brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and a mighty hand? 12Why should the Egyptians declare, ‘He brought them out with evil intent, to kill them in the mountains and wipe them from the face of the earth’? Turn from Your fierce anger and relent from doing harm to Your people. 13Remember Your servants Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, to whom You swore by Your very self when You declared, ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, and I will give your descendants all this land that I have promised, and it shall be their inheritance forever.’ ” 14So the LORD relented from the calamity He had threatened to bring on His people.”
Exodus 32:9-14 The Bride has authority just like Queen Esther to advocate before the King, for the cause of her people. “Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. 10“See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To pluck up and to break down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9-10 As we intercede, say to the LORD, “Abba, You have a promise to make to Your people, rooted in the Land, a holy generation of praise, and a nation of Priests. You have brought your people back to the Land, not to be destroyed by Persian (Iranian) regime/plot again. You have said in Jeremiah 49:35 “I will break the bow of Elam (Persia)” which is the launching platform of nuclear missiles, the flaming arrows. Israel will NOT be destroyed! And the people shall receive the mercy of ADONAI once again. The Remnant Bride of the Nations and Israel are getting prepared to say 'Baruch Haba B’Shem ADONAI'. No weapon formed against Israel shall prosper!" Queen Esther (Hadassah) was the only one who could stand up and intercede for her people in her day, and now the Queen Bride of YESHUA is being called to intercede and stand in the gap for Israel, at such a time as this! “Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel, And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them; They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit. 15“I will also plant them on their land, And they will not again be rooted out from their land Which I have given them,” Says the LORD your God.” Amos 9:14-15 Let’s pray: Father, in the Name of YESHUA, we humble ourselves before You, asking for forgiveness, for the sins of Israel your people, mostly for trying to be like the other nations, which we should not be. We ask You, as Your Bride waiting for our Bridegroom that is seated at Your right hand, waiting for the restoration of all things, to expedite the preparation for His return. If You allowed us to come back to the Land, and we are wiped out by a nuclear war, how could Your promise be fulfilled? The nations will say that You brought us back to the Land to die, instead YOU SAID that we will never be uprooted again. You also said that You will break the bow of Elam (Iran). Father, we ask you to be ADONAI TZEVAOT, send us the Captain of Your Heavenly Armies, like you did for Joshua, with divine strategies of war as in Joshua 6. You said we are your weapons of war, with You we can shatter nations and with You we shatter the bow of Elam!
We declare and decree from Your Word that every weapon formed against Israel is rendered powerless and void and shall boomerang back to where it came from.
As Your Bride, we ask you to pour out upon us the Spirit of Intercession, as we wait for Your Redemption and deliverance of Israel. Not because we deserve it, but for the sake of Your Holy Name.
In YESHUA'S Name, amen!
