This morning the Lord was highlighting the PIONEERS to me again. I saw many pioneers being hit hard in the past few weeks especially and many were left almost dazed and confused and wondering what was going on.
I felt the Lord then speak to me that the enemy has been coming hard against the PIONEERS because of the birthing position that the PIONEERS are in right now and have been this year. New ministries, new ventures. new doors, new pathways branching out from existing ministries, adventures for the Lord, new land being explored and taken, new grounds being forged, leading others into the NEW.
As I saw this onslaught attack coming against the PIONEERS especially in the last 2-3 weeks, the Lord showed me a word that I believe encapsulates the intention of this onslaught. The word that I saw was “PILLAGE”.
DEFINITION OF PILLAGE: The act of plundering, take something by force, to rob/steal using violence. (Dictionary.com)
The sense surrounded me of the intention of the enemy is not only to PLUNDER (steal and rob) the birthing of what God is doing through the PIONEERS but to bring DEVASTATION to what God is birthing.
As I saw this intense swirling opposition and for many PIONEERS they have been hit so hard out of nowhere and harder than ever, I heard the Lord say “STAND YOUR GROUND, IT IS SMOKE AND MIRRORS, THINGS ARE ABOUT TO CLEAR!!! TAKE HEART, A GREATER LEVEL OF PROMOTION AND PILGRIMAGE IS BEFORE YOU!!! AS YOU STAND IN ME AND CONTINUE TO PUT YOUR HANDS TO WHAT I HAVE ASKED YOU TO, AGREEING WITH ME, YOU WILL SEE THE ANGELIC ARMY AND PROTECTION OF MY HAND OVER WHAT I AM BIRTHING THROUGH YOU!”
There was such an urgency in my spirit that the Lord was encouraging His people to continue to AGREE with what HE is saying over them and what He is birthing and NOT AGREE with the enemy. I sensed the enemy was looking for AGREEMENT. Once the AGREEMENT came to all his lies and his foreboding, then he would have legal ground to start to cause havoc. I felt the Lord’s heart for the PIONEERS to keep standing, keep putting your hands to what the Lord has asked you to, don’t move to the left or the right even though the opposition is hard, you’ve met walls before you and you feel stuck. Do all you can by the leading of His Spirit to keep moving forward and you will see this very onslaught of attack that has come against you is but smoke and mirrors and will begin to fade away. You will see the ANGELIC REINFORCEMENTS the Lord has sent to you to protect you and what He is birthing through you and you will SEE the MIGHTY HAND OF THE LORD bring BREAKTHROUGH!
I saw a divine highlight on the words PROMOTION and PILGRIMAGE!!!! The Lord spoke to me that the enemy is simply attempting to hit the very area that the Lord is about to bring great FAVOUR, INCREASE and PROMOTION to. THIS is your next area of greatest breakthrough, favour and promotion.
DEFINITION PILGRIMAGE: a journey, especially a long one, made to some sacred place (Dictionary.com)
The Lord is taking the PIONEERS on a NEW JOURNEY!!! I felt the Lord saying it is going to be LONG.. but the LONG was a POSITIVE! As the PIONEERS keep standing their ground, moving forward and obeying the leading of the Spirit in what He is birthing in and through them, that the ‘baby’ being birthed is here to LAST. There is a DECREE of heaven over you that you are here for the LONG JOURNEY!! You will NOT be take out and you will SEE the FRUIT of what He is birthing in and through you LAST as you continue to steward with purity and integrity.
You are moving into a new land. He is taking you on a SACRED JOURNEY with Him, into a deeper place. A place where you know a closeness to His heart that you have never known before. You will will be in greater reverence and awe of who He is and know abundance, provision, increase, favour and His Kingdom government being established through you like never before.
The enemy is screaming “PILLAGE!!! I AM TAKING YOU OUT”! Keep your eyes on Jesus, for He is DECLARING over you “YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE GREATEST LAND OF BREAKTHROUGH OF YOUR PIONEERING LIFE!!! Every hardship, every season of contending, everything has been preparation for such a time as this. THIS season! PIONEERS you will NOT be marked as always being ‘heavy laden’ or continually ‘battling’. He is breaking that off you and He is MARKING YOU WITH JOY!!!! The PILGRIMAGE BEFORE YOU into a NEW LAND of breakthrough, increase and ENCOUNTER with Jesus will not feel like you are swimming upstream anymore, but a breakthrough in rest to be carried into the fruits of what you have been partnering with the Lord to birth for SO LONG. He is in the midwifery position! That baby is coming OUT!!!!
