Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?” The captain of the LORD’S host said to Joshua, “ Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.
I am calling for my holy ones to stand up and make ready. Make ready for the battle that is ahead of you. Will you be counted among the hosts of heaven? Will you take your stand?
The armies of the evil one are amassing because they know that their time is coming to an end, and their desire is to target the very foundations of your faith. But take courage! I am your commander and your deliverer, and victory is assured.
Take up the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit. Make your stand on your most holy faith and your foundations will remain secure. Make your declaration of victory in my name. Gather your strength and do not allow your focus to be diverted by the distractions of this world. Know that I am with you and know the joy of the victorious risen Christ!
To he who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
