SWAT Team Commandos - The Release of the Special Forces
June 15, 2017
I see a wave building, even now, of a move of God that is carrying and thrusting forth in this hour harvesters who carry and have been endowed with the spirit of Elijah. I see an amalgamation of mantles for the harvest that is before us in this season. The marrying of the prophet and evangelist.
The Lord is adding to the prophets and evangelists in this hour. For those who stand in the evangelistic office I see a stronger prophetic thrust coming forth, a stronger prophetic angle and expression of release. And for many prophets in this hour I see a strong evangelistic heart being birthed and the passion for souls adding and consuming their mandate.
Double Portion in the Harvest Field
About a month ago, an angel came to me in a dream and prophesied over me: "Double portion favor in evangelism." Now I know my office is that of a prophet. So for me that word seemed quite interesting and different. But the Lord began to show me He is releasing in this time and hour a double portion mantle of the prophetic married with the evangelistic anointing.
"They will conquer and plunder the underground ops of darkness, loosing captives of those that are bound by the strongholds of lies and aiding in the dismantling of the principalities that have seated themselves over each of these mountains."
There is a harvest of prodigals, and there is a harvest of the lost that are ripe for the picking in this season. For as the time of birth is destined by the Lord, so the time for being born again of the Spirit is destined of the Lord.
The Lord is sending His laborers into the harvest field to retrieve those who are marked for harvest in this season. There are seeds of prayers that have been sown over these ones that have reached full maturity in ripeness.
The Mantle of Camel's Hair
Recently, I saw the Lord releasing mantles of camel's hair upon many who are being sent and commissioned in this season. This mantle was worn by Elijah and John the Baptist and is a symbol of reconciliation and restoration – turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers.
Even as John the Baptist went in the spirit and power of Elijah and was a voice to cause a return of the lost sheep of Israel, so that same mantle of the spirit of Elijah is being released forth in a double portion measure in this hour that will infiltrate the world and the Church and see a great return of the lost and the prodigal back to the heart of the Father.
A Violent Sending With All of Heaven Backing
"He said to His disciples, 'The harvest is indeed plentiful but the laborers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out and thrust laborers into His harvest.'" (Matthew 9:37-38 AMP)
When we take a look at this Scripture more closely, we see here the Lord is not just asking us to pray that He sends forth laborers into the harvest field. But to pray that He "forces and thrusts" them out into His harvest field. Another explanation of the root meaning to "sending forth" according to Strong's Concordance it is to thrust out by violent force or to lead someone forth with a force which he cannot resist!
Have you ever thought of that when praying for laborers in the harvest field? Have you ever thought to pray that the Lord thrusts them forth with a violent force of which it is hard to resist? That to me shows the level of intention and power of which the laborers are to operate in the harvest field.
Harvesting in the Kingdom is not a tip-toe-through-the-tulip-type ministry, it is one that is sent and thrust forth by the violent action of Heaven. The heavens suffer violence and the violent take it by force. This violent action of Heaven that places these laborers in His harvest field also acts as a fuel and power source which flows through them as they harvest.
Get Ready For the Catapult
Many of you are those laborers that the Lord is about to violently thrust forth into position in the harvest field. When you are sent into the harvest field, know you are sent with the violent backing of Heaven.
The Sickle and the Sword
These harvesters are a new breed. As the two anointings of the prophet and evangelist work together, these ones will carry a sickle in one hand and the sword of the Word of the Lord in the other. With the sword they will break loose the chains of darkness and with the sickle they will gather them into the storehouse.
These vessels carry breakthrough to a generation held captive to the lies of darkness. It's the Word of the Lord that acts like a hammer, breaking into pieces the most stubborn resistance; and it's the Word of the Lord like fire that consumes all that cannot stand the test (see Jeremiah 23:29). This coupled with the miraculous power of God will cause even the most hardest of hearts to be set free from demonic bondages and strongholds, causing them to see and be awakened to the truth (see Luke 1:17 AMP).
I see the storm clouds of the Lord, the thundering and lightenings of God going with and backing these laborers, these harvesting vessels of the Lord. For where the prophetic mantle meets with the evangelistic power, the kingdom of darkness that is holding these ones captive doesn't stand a chance.
SWAT Team Commandos -
A Release of the Special Forces Into Seven Mountains
In this last season I see these harvesting vessels have been trained like SWAT team commandos receiving new instructions in the strategy room for the coming mission. They have been prepped and made ready, equipped and heavily armed, filled with the wisdom and strategy of the Lord.
Fearless and resolved, with courage and boldness, motivated by the Father's intense love for a lost generation, they are being released like an army of ants, as precisely timed missiles, into the seven mountains.
They will conquer and plunder the underground ops of darkness, loosing captives of those that are bound by the strongholds of lies and aiding in the dismantling of the principalities that have seated themselves over each of these mountains.
The Harvest is Ripe in the Church
There is a harvest that is ripe not only in the world but also in the Church. I have seen for many years there will be a move like that of John the Baptist where there will be multitudes being baptized in the river of repentance. Let's remember that the move of God that was upon John the Baptist was a move in the house of Israel. It was a move for the "Church" so to speak – it wasn't focused on the gentile (the lost).
A Move of Repentance - Returning to Their First Love
"But I have this one charge to make against you: that you have left (abandoned) your first love." Revelation 2:4
"It's the Word of the Lord that acts like a hammer, breaking into pieces the most stubborn resistance; and it's the Word of the Lord like fire that consumes all that cannot stand the test (see Jeremiah 23:29)."
When I began to see the wave and move of God that is building and about to release the prophetic evangelists in this hour and violently thrust them into the harvest field, I knew that part of this encapsulated a move of repentance that would flood the people of God like a tsunami, drawing them back to their first love.
Cloaked with the camel's hair mantle (the spirit of Elijah), these ones will carry and release the river of repentance. They will call a distracted, disillusioned, doubly focused, lukewarm people back to having a heart raging with the fire of love for their King.
As the Lord releases this new breed of SWAT team commandos and prophetic evangelists, we will see many people, even in within the Church, running down to the Jordan shouting, "What must I do to be truly saved?"
Some of those will be pastors and leaders who have been strangled by a system that doesn't promote a Christ-centered, Spirit-led agenda. For where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! There will truly be a returning of many back to the right altar, and back to the presence of God. Many will forsake works for intimacy with the Lord and their own agenda for Heaven's agenda.
The River of Repentance is Flowing Through the Nations of the Earth -
Out of the Mouths of Babes
Not long ago, at our weekly service in children's church, the theme was baptism. We were teaching the children the symbolic meaning and Biblical truth of baptism. In this class as a craft activity we gave the children each a dove, symbolizing the Holy Spirit who descended upon Jesus after His baptism. They were to decorate or color it however they wished. Normally, they would just color in their pictures, but on this occasion the Spirit of the Lord came upon each child and they began to prophetically color patterns on each dove!
All the children did this right down to the youngest of 3 years of age. These children weren't copying each other. As I went around the class I began to see that each pattern represented a country. There were patterns that looked like Australian indigenous art, there was one that looked like New Zealand, South Africa, Asia, Korea, South America, India etc. The notable thing on each of their doves was that there was a river flowing through each one. Whether they meant to do it or not, it appeared.
The Lord then showed me what they were prophesying. Because we were doing baptism, the children were decreeing, through their colored patterned doves, that there will be a move of the Holy Spirit of repentance upon the nations of the Earth and the spirit of Elijah that was upon John the Baptist will draw the nations' hearts back to God.
A Switch of Prayer Focus
I feel like the Lord is putting a call out to those believing for their loved ones – who have been believing for the day of their salvation – to switch their focus in prayer in this hour. I see we are on a threshold of breakthrough and fulfillment and for the Saints now to turn their prayers toward the laborers. For the Lord says to pray for the laborers (see Matthew 9:38).
Pray for the vessels He is sending into the fields in this hour. Pray for them to be protected and the way to be made for them. Pray for those who are called to be harvesters and who aren't yet positioned to be aligned and to hear the call of the Mighty Captain of the hosts.
I once heard a preacher say, "The Lord never said to pray for the harvest, but to pray for the laborers." The harvest is ripe but the laborers are few.
Lift up your voice for the laborers, and partner with Heaven's agenda as we stand on the cusp of a mighty breakthrough of harvest this generation has yet to experience. Pray that the Lord would thrust forth and position the laborers into His field as the harvest is ripe for reaping!
