God’s in the Battle – but where are we?
|“Fear Not! I Am Healing the Land!” Travis Holland, Defiance, OH|
The prophet speaks to the battle for America.
“And one cried to another and said: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!'” (Isaiah 6:3 NKJV)
Recently, the Lord caught me up in a vision. I saw the earth and a large portion of it was a barren desert. It was as if no rain had poured on it, no river flowed through it.
The area of this desert had no trees, no mountains, no tumble weeds – nothing living was found. But even when I was seeing this, I had great joy in my spirit like God was about to move upon it.
The Golden River
Then the Lord showed me the other third of the earth. It was lush and green; there were mountains with snow caps, flowers, flourishing trees planted by streams of water…there were rolling hills of green pastures that just looked like a perfect place to lay down and rest.
Then the Lord drew my attention to a golden river that was flowing from this place. The river was as thick as honey and moved with purpose and divine intention; it was moving as a strong flowing river towards the dry land. There was an original riverbed for this golden river to flow on, but it looked as if it was not used regularly to flow through for years.
All of a sudden, the golden river reached the dry land and started to carve out a new riverbed in the dry land, and it began to flow freely. Every inch that the river touched, new, green life sprouted up. Grass immediately emerged; flowers and trees sprung forth. It was like it was there in seed form that no one could see with a natural eye because it was buried beneath this dry land. Mountains started to rise up; hills of green pastures started to form in fullness.
“I Am Healing the Land”
I looked at the Lord and said, “What are You showing me? He said, “I AM healing the land.” As I watched this healing take place, I was in awe of how quickly it was being done. There were still areas that were dry, simply because the river had not touched them, but every square inch that the golden river flowed in was completely changed and transformed. The new growth started from the river and spread to all of the surrounding areas around it.
A Principality Over the Earth
Suddenly, I saw an enormous helicopter above the earth. It had a wicked smile with teeth painted on. Underneath the wings on each side were missile launchers. The head of each missile was colored bronze and came to an aggressive point. I knew He was showing me this principality for a reason. This principality desired to rob the earth of the revival, restoration, and new life God was bringing forth.
I asked the Lord, “Didn’t Jesus disarm all of the principalities and powers (Colossians 2:15)? He spoke with such grace and mercy, and said, “Yes, but the people have been rearming them with their fear, anger towards each other, disunity, words of bitterness and strife. They have chosen the authority of the flesh over the authority of Heaven. They have sown in discord and as such armed a defeated foe once again to be poised to attack” (James 3:16, Galatians 6:7-9, Ephesians 4:27, 1 Peter 5:8).Fear Not!
The Lord spoke again and said, “The enemy is preparing to launch a second wave attack. But FEAR NOT! I AM healing the land. You can see the enemy, but he cannot harm you.
I AM a God of promise. I have promised you, ‘If MY people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land’ (2 Chronicles 7:14).
I saw the glory of the Lord cover the earth. It was as if a shield was put up to stop any attack that might come and, at the same time, serve the principality a notification that no matter what the plan to attack was, it would fail.
“So now, Lord, listen to their threats to harm us. Empower us, as Your servants, to speak the Word of God freely and courageously. Stretch out Your hand of power through us to heal, and to move in signs and wonders by the name of Your holy Son, Jesus!” (Acts 4:29-30 TPT)
Those Who Walk Like Enoch
I saw again the river flowing, bringing new life, restoration, and reviving the land. I looked over to the third of the earth where the river birthed forth from. I saw people gathered in prayer, unity, worship, and hunger for His power and love to flood the earth. These people were surrounded by the presence of God as if it were the very atmosphere they breathed and moved in. They were walking like Enoch and were passionately united together so that no division or work of the enemy could be found between them.
They hungered corporately for Jesus, His Spirit, and Abba Father’s presence greater than I’ve ever seen corporately before. There was no lack of identity or intimacy among them. The Lord spoke again and said, “Can you see why I AM healing the land?”
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-16 NKJV)”
At that moment the earth shook beneath them, causing the building they were in to tremble. Each one of them was filled with the Holy Spirit, and they proclaimed the Word of God with unrestrained boldness.
“All the Believers were one in mind and heart. Selfishness was not a part of their community, for they shared everything they had with one another. The apostles gave powerful testimonies about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great measures of grace rested upon them all.” (Acts 4:31-33 TPT)”God claims the world as His. Everything and everyone belongs to Him!” (Psalm 24:1 TPT)*
