PROPHETIC WORD – STRIKE THE GROUND

Lord give us the boldness to strike the ground for complete victory against the enemy. Break any strongholds and lies that he may have in our lives, and help us not to stop short.

There have been several themes that I have been hearing in my spirit this month. One of them is, “Strike the ground!”

In 2 Kings 13, we read that Joash, king of Israel, left his palace to visit Elisha as the prophet lay upon his sickbed. Elisha was dying, but by means of a prophetic action, he assured the king that God was not done with Israel. Elisha told Joash to shoot an arrow from his bow out the east window, and when he did, Elisha called it the “arrow of the Lord’s victory.” Then he directed the king to take more arrows and strike the ground. The king struck the ground only three times; his half-hearted response upset the prophet and he said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times” (2 Kings 13:19b).

I find it interesting that the “arrow of the Lord’s victory” goes forth through the air first, creating the means for a complete victory. The king is then asked to strike the ground with more arrows, but he falls short of a response that would bring about that completion. I believe that just as we see in this story, the Lord goes before us and creates a victory in the spirit realm—He opens the way into what we cannot see—but then we, as kings and priests in His family, must partner with the victory that He has accomplished by striking the ground here on Earth.

Our strikes must match what is necessary to completely destroy the works of our foe. Yet so often we stop short, and though we have victories, we do not see the complete destruction of the plans of the enemy. We have seen this on many fronts; from moves of God that displace the enemy and establish the Kingdom of God through His Ekklesia to the issues in the land such as abortion and identity.

There is personal and corporate repentance taking place now that is changing everything. It is moving the Church in an offensive advance instead of causing her to hide in the posture of defense. The evidence we bring against the enemy IS admissible and God is judging the evil that he has done. Repentance is freedom. It is as though we have been held in a prison cell and repentance is the key that opens the door to set us free. It is release from the captivity of the enemy! It is such a great gift!

We are marching forth in March—marching out of prisons that have held many individuals captive for years. Even “life sentences” are being reversed! God’s arrow of victory has been shot and now we must strike the ground and not stop short of full victory. We strike the ground for the evil that has been done in the sight of God in our personal lives, in the Church, and in the land. We will strike the ground for the unborn in the womb and the unborn in the spirit. It’s time to birth sons and daughters! It’s time for a move of God that has no end!

The arrow of the Lord’s victory has flown with power, and now is the time to strike the ground that brings forth change!

  1. I have heard that 2019 is the year of Breakthrough in areas we have prayed for repeatedly in the past. About 2 months ago, a family member who has been severely unrepentant in her life had a traumatic accident. I have been praying for her for many years. I came to visit her in her hospital room, stroked her face & kissed her forehead. She said as I entered the room, a bright Light entered. When I touched her, a peace came over her. And those “7 Deadly sins” she has been practicing? They completely fell off of her. Truly, this is a dramatic Breakthrough. But God spoke to my heart (just as you said in the post above) & said: “You must continue to pray, you must contend for her salvation”. Christ-followers — we MUST CONTINUE to intercede for our nation, for our loved ones, for our neighbors, for our elected officials, for the 2020 election. God have Mercy, God pour down your Holy Rain, cleanse the Body of Christ & convict the unbeliever. In Jesus name.

  2. God is judging the systems and institutions (including the 501c3 nonprofit tax exempt Corporate Churches Religous Business system of Baal) and those that are wicked and evil and criminally corrupt in America and on the EARTH. There is a war waging in Spiritual Realm between the Prophets of Baal(the stronman over America) against the Spirit of the Prophet of Elijah and fire which is manifesting on the EARTH in the natural Realm. You are seeing the Army of God the Holy Chosen Remnant in the Body of Christ(which has been Lukewarm) is Rising in America because of their target focused Repentance of their own personal sins and the sin’s of their father’s and the sins of this Nation. King David lays out the key to individual repentance “Search me, O God, and know my heart;Try me, and know my anxieties;And see if there is any wicked way in me,
    And lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24) An once the Holy chosen Remnant of God within a nation goes into Spirtual Warfare after target focused repentance against the enemy the call for the Body of Christ and Nations leaders manifests isteslf as repentance is brought forth. We see God come to Solomon to answer his prayer in the night saying “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. (1 Chronicle’s 7:14)
    Then we see a call to return to Gods Moral laws to rebuild and restore the natural order of God’s Righteous and Justice within the people and nation. Isaiah writes this “Those from among you
    Shall build the old waste places;You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.” (Isaiah 58:12) We are seeing all of this Manifest in America and other Nations around the world as Hidden Obscure Holy Chosen Remnant the Army of God that has been through the valleys, wastelands and cave experiences as God purged them through the fire to purify them in furnace to rise up for such a time as this on the EARTH.

  3. Thank you God Most High, the ultimate Sovereign and Commander. You have gained the victory and make we strike the ground assiduously and many times to show our zeal for following your instructions. Thank you for using us to gain Your victory and thereby allowing us to be a part of something eternal. We need you, You do not need us.

  4. Powerful post. We are sons and daughters of the King of the Universe. It is high time we pray and act like we are. God is in control and our enemies will not ultimately prosper. It may appear to the world that they are, but our God is greater than anything in the world. I pray for God’s continued protection over our unborn babies, our President and his people.
    Dear Lord, I praise you for you are the maker of the Universe and the keeper of my soul. Please help us here on earth to everyday dedicate ourselves to you. Please help our leaders to continue to seek your guidance in all of their decisions on our behalf. Please bless and protect Israel from the enemy who still wishes to destroy her. And dear Lord, I grieve for the horrible killing of our babies through government sanctioned abortion. I pray for the mothers that their hearts will be turned to you and understand what they are doing. In Jesus Name, Amen
