Are Your Children Covered? Protect Them Supernaturally!

Do you feel certain, without a doubt, that your children are protected  from Satan’s evil tactics when they are away from home or even in your own house? There is only one foolproof way, and it is an intentional, proactive act with the blood of Jesus Christ with the prayer of faith–and it always brings a supernatural result as you will read here.

Satan is going after your children in all-out war! Are you prepared?

Do the Joshua Jericho Prayer Walk for Peace, Protection and Victory! Are your children covered? You can never protect them yourself, but you can protect them supernaturally with the blood of Jesus prayer, and the Joshua Jericho Prayer Walk. Click through for the free printable guide. Satan is after your child and your grandchildren. If you haven’t yet heard, a new well-organized curriculum is in 50 of 60 public schools across Canada. It’s called SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification). It celebrates alternative  lifestyles and that “gender is fluid. In other words, your gender is not dependent on what parts you were born with but rather what you feel like in the moment” (“Mommy, I Don’t Want to Be a Boy!” Christian Broadcasting Network News App, World, January 10, 2018).

SOGI starts in kindergarten. A five-year-old little girl came home, and said, “Mommy, I don’t want to be a boy!” When she played with so-called masculine toys, the teacher told her that she might be a boy inside. When her mother complained, she was called names because she was ‘behaving badly.’ Children’s rights are above parents’ rights. Eighty-five percent of teachers are compliant and pushing this agenda. If you think it can’t happen in America, think again. It’s spreading, and who is hindering it?

In addition, sex trafficking is not a new thing, but are you aware just how easy it is for it to happen to your child or grandchild? A new book, Almost Gone, by John, Stephanie, and Mackenzie Baldwin shares how seventeen-year old Mackenzie surfed a social media site with a tagline, Talk to Strangers! and was seduced by a man in Kosovo. The site randomly connects people from around the world.  It gives them the opportunity to chat one-on-one using text or video.

Over fourteen months, she withdrew from friends and family,  and dressed more conservatively. She converted to Islam from a Christian family background, and made plans to fly to Kosovo to marry this Muslim man.

Mackenzie’s  parents had twenty-five days and one chance to save  her. It took  them  getting involved with the help of one of her friends and the FBI before she woke up and cut this relationship off. Families are reading together this Almost Gone book that reads like a mystery novel.

We don’t have to see our children get to the point of flying to Kosovo or being in a classroom with a teacher pushing an evil agenda we don’t agree with. There really is hope. There really is a God who wants to fight these battles for us, and will do so if we allow Him to.

But, it takes effort and time on our part with understanding of who He is to see it happen. The Bible says “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children” (Hosea 4:6).

Allow me to share what happened supernaturally when we prayed the Hebrew names of God over our church, children and families one week, and the spiritual wisdom behind it. First, the spiritual wisdom:

When we pray the Hebrew names of God over our children, we are invoking the whole power of the God Head – the Trinity:  God the Father, the blood of Jesus Christ the Son, and Holy Spirit to work in their lives and to protect them.

Yahweh/Jehovah/LORD [Our Father] Builds a Fire Wall Around Our Childen

A man named John prayed as he walked around his property. When a fire threatened to burn his house, the fire stopped at the line of his prayer path. He had created a controlled burn area with the presence of the LORD in his life, and the natural fire could go no further. There are 417 places in the Old Testament of the Bible where Jehovah and fire are mentioned in the same sentence. We see Jehovah/Yahweh, as LORD in our English Bible. Our God, as a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24), created a fire wall, just as a computer needs a fire wall to be protected.

Yeshua/Jesus Creates a Blood Line Around Our Children

John was also creating a blood line around his property. This signifies the blood Jesus shed for us to give us Life. The children of Israel were commanded to take the blood of a firstborn lamb and swipe it over the sides and tops of the door frames of their houses the night before Moses led them out of Egypt.

The LORD said, “The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” That night all the firstborn sons of the Egyptians were slain, but the Israelites’ sons were untouched, and Pharaoh, after this last plague, allowed them to leave Egypt for the Promised Land. This was the first Passover that pointed to the Lamb Jesus, the Father’s firstborn Son, who would bring salvation to the whole world through His shed blood that paid the price for sin.

The Holy Spirit Cleanses/Protects Our Children

The Old Testament of the Bible gives details of how the priests pronounced a diseased person clean after he was well. In this ceremonial cleansing, the priest used a scarlet yarn, blood and oil. Everything in the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ. The red yarn was symbolic of the trail of blood throughout history of the Jewish people who shed blood of firstborn animals, “for without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin” (Hebrews 9:22).

Rather than using blood for cleansing today, post resurrection of Jesus, we use oil. The Bible instructs us when praying for the sick to anoint him with oil, and with the prayer of faith he will be made well (see James 5:14-15). We can anoint anything with oil with a prayer of faith, just like the children of Israel used blood over their houses and like the priests sprinkled blood against the altar at the entrance of the tent of meeting (see Leviticus 17:6). Oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit in the Bible.

How We Prayed Over Our Children, Families and Church Property

If the church shooting that killed twenty-six people from infants to the elderly in Sutherland Springs, Texas in 2017, did not wake up you or your church, nothing will. On January 7, 2018, we started a  JOSHUA-JERICHO PRAYER-WALKING GUIDEto pray during one week. Each day, beginning on Monday and ending on Saturday, we prayed each day two of twelve Hebrew names of God over our families and church while at home. We also anointed the entrances to our houses.

On Sunday the 14th, we prayed all twelve Hebrew names of God as we walked around the church, and the pastor anointed the entrance of the ‘tent of meeting’ and other doors as we, the kingdom of priests, watched and walked by. A couple people sounded the shofar, and we shouted in praise to the LORD.

During the week, Wednesday morning, I meditated on Joshua 5. This was 40 years after the children of Israel left Egypt and they had just observed the Passover as they did that night before leaving. It was the 14th day of their New Year, just as they had done every year on the 14th day of each new year. Knowing Sunday would be the 14th day, confirmed to me that the LORD was in our midst and truly guiding us.

This is the chapter after Joshua and the children of Israel already crossed Jordan River to enter the Promised Land and before they marched around Jericho seven times, armed and ready for battle. They witnessed the LORD bring down the wall, so they could go in and take the city. On the evening of the 14th day, Joshua saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”

“Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” It’s like the LORD was saying, “I will take it from here. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. . . . You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions, stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you” (2 Chronicles 20:15, 17).

The Commander of the Army of the LORD of hosts Showed Up

Jehovah Sabaoth Lord hosts military wedding

As I tried to picture the commander of the army of the LORD, I knew His Hebrew name was Jehovah- Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts, Supreme Commander of the universe and our Bridegroom. This Hebrew character name of God has a dual meaning: a hard side and a soft side. The commander of army of the LORD in the book of Joshua was the Angel of the LORD Jesus Christ who is our soon coming King and Bridegroom of His mature, military Bride.

Before I knew anything was happening, my head lifted from my Bible as I saw a huge flash of white and gold shoot up into the air above our church property. I saw His sword cut into the ground at the property line a few yards, then it was like: swoosh all the way around, and He was gone. The impression I heard was, “I’ll take care of that blood line and fire wall for you. Thank you for believing.”

We had not yet prayed day five that called upon the name of Jehovah-Sabaoth, but all these Hebrew character names are the same and ONE and ONLY true GOD of the universe: the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. What an amazing God we serve!

M10I Jehovah Sabaoth: Lord of hosts Leads the Way

The mature bride  is at the performing stage of teamwork with Jehovah Sabaoth

The children of Israel had come through the first three stages, forming (in Eyypt), storming (in the desert wilderness), norming (at the crossing of the Jordan), and are now at the threshold of taking possession of the land where it is imperative that they perform. Fear kept their ancestors out, but now, with Joshua’s leadership, they believed it would happen. But how? Would it be in their own strength or that of Jehovah Sabaoth [Lord of hosts].

After crossing the Jordan, their conquest started with the shedding of blood—by the circumcision of all males of the new generation. They also celebrated Passover, where the blood of the Lamb was swiped over their doorposts before leaving bondage in Egypt, all pointing to the blood of Jesus shed for them. On that special day when they stopped to worship and renew their covenant with God—putting first things first—the manna stopped as they ate of the produce of the land (see Joshua 5:11).

Their conquest continued as they neared Jericho surrounded with high stone walls. Joshua saw a man with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua did not know who he was because he said,

“Are you for us or for our enemies?”

“Neither,” he replied, but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”

The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.—Joshua 5:14-15

The commander of the army of the Lord, responded to the obedience of the people and received divine adoration from Joshua, telling him he was on holy ground, and now it was like He was saying, “I will take it from here. I will bring down those walls.”

The Ark of the Covenant the priests carried across the Jordan, led the way. In fact, it was the Lord of hosts who brought them over Jordan and who will do the same for us.

Jehovah Sabaoth Lord hosts service

How do we know it is Jehovah Sabaoth who leads the way?

After David became king, he wanted the Ark of the Covenant moved to Jerusalem where it belonged. The ark was a chest overlaid with gold with two gold cherubim on the top “atonement” cover where blood of sacrificial animals was sprinkled. The blood symbolized God’s forgiveness of sin—pointing to Jesus the Lamb of God. It was carried through the wilderness by the priests and later captured by the Philistines. David gathered thirty thousand men to bring the ark back. Samuel, now a grown man and a prophet of God, records that the ark was “called by the Name, the very name of the Lord of hosts who is enthroned above the cherubim” (2 Sam. 6:2 NASB).

The ark represented the presence of the Lord; everywhere it went the people prospered. Hebrews tells us that the temple, the Holy of Holies, all sacred items dedicated for worship, including the Ark of the Covenant, are copies of heavenly things.

For Christ did not enter a man made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own . . . Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.—Hebrews 9:24-28 (emphasis mine)

Jesus entered the Most Holy Place and sprinkled his very own blood on the ark as our High Priest and sat down at the right hand of the Father. He stepped in first, just as the Israelite priests did who carried that ark across Jordan. He is stepping in now and going before us just as He did for the children of Israel. It is His responsibility and His battle to bring us into the land, ours to follow and obey, to believe and expect the walls to come down.

Let Jehovah Sabaoth lead the way

joy with Jehovah Sabaoth

If it is Jehovah Sabaoth’s responsibility to get us in the land and help us possess it, why did not the first generation get across? We remind ourselves it was because their hearts melted with discouragement from their brothers about the giants in the land. The devil’s purpose, as accuser of the brethren, is to steal our joy, thus, our energy needed to put faith into action. It is the joy of the Lord that is our strength (see Neh. 8:10 NASB). Without joy all resolve to fight is gone.

We may be the head goose, shielding the way for others, strength drained, feeling like we cannot flap those wings one more minute. But, we know we cannot let up in this sacred service of the Lord. It is so important and the weight of the whole world may seem to be on our shoulders, yet, the only way we will enter the land is to fall back and allow another to take the lead—Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts.

When we do, it is like His hand moves into our glove and he works where we do not have to work; we see His hand at work all around us, signs and wonders we never saw before. He anoints our obedience; He uses our availability, not any ability we thought we may have had in the first place. And we discover our availability means we needed to be toughened by hardship in the wilderness in order to endure the battles we face in following Him, yet there is no obstacle we cannot overcome because He is our guide. We find the only easy day was yesterday as we enter unmapped territory. When we position ourselves so we can see the Lord of hosts, and get our eyes fixed on Him alone—nothing between—He imparts His intelligence and we have His mind through His Word more than we ever dreamed possible.

The Lord of hosts told Joshua to keep His Word, to do according to all the law and commandments and to not allow the Word to depart from his lips (see Joshua 1:7-8). One soldier, even Joshua, cannot fight a whole battle on his own; he must be able to trust his comrades, and he must be trustworthy. Our fight is not with flesh and blood as in the Old Testament, but with powers and evil forces of this present darkness. The only way we can fight them is to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might” (Eph. 6:10 NASB), and by putting on His armor and wielding the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God (see Eph. 6:16-17).

Jehovah Sabaoth [Lord of hosts] undergirds us by the wind of His Spirit

Jehovah Sabaoth leads the way

The mature military bride knows it will take the whole army to complete the mission of the Lord of hosts. Therefore, her battle is to trust Him to bring down the walls between individuals who make up all denominations in Christ’s body—the Church.

It is His orchestra, and He has given each of us in His service a trumpet—our mouth of praise speaking forth His Word—along with other instruments He has gifted us with. He knows who will fill each seat, what part they will play—and when. He has worked the impossible in transforming us from a lone eagle separated for private lessons to a member of the large team of geese. Unity will come when each has his or her eyes on the Conductor—and Him alone. He will bring that unity through our availability and beautiful music will result. What a grand concert it will be!

 Thy words were found and I ate them, And thy words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Thy name, O Lord God of hosts.  Jeremiah 15:16 NASB

M10G What Does the Performing Stage of the Lord of hosts Look Like?

Here is an example of how the performing stage can be reached

A group of Christians in Arkansas City, Kansas, decided they wanted to start an individual affiliate with Habitat for Humanity to help families in their town to be home owners. Many people who joined the group thought they could start immediately to build a house, but it was not that easy. It took a lot of paperwork and research to get the application process completed and two efforts in presenting it to Habitat for approval. These forming and storming stages— not easily defined from each other—took two years.

For six months the group went no where. Finally Wayne Short, a retired plant operations manager with General Electric, took the lead from the official president and said “We will have an agenda at every meeting, and each committee will report their progress monthly.”

The norming stage took shape as each committee did their research and helped write their part of the application for their 401 3 C status for tax purposes.

The performing stage began before one house was built. The fundraising committee found start-up capital. The home selection committee took applications from qualifying families. The hard part was finding an electrician and plumber able and willing to donate time, but they did find them.

performing stage houses built

The result? Six houses were built in eight years—one house per year. With a $300.00 deposit, a family owned their house with a no-interest payment—less than their previous rent payment. Twenty-five children’s lives were impacted. After a family’s house was built, that family helped build the next and on and on. As revenue increases, the team will be able to build more than one house per year. All volunteers were impacted as they gave. Like the leader of the flock of geese, after the eight years Wayne passed leadership to the retired city manager and fell back, but he kept on building.

Faith was built and restored for all involved, especially the recipients. Rosene, the second homeowner partner, sent a letter to the group. She spent thirty-five years trusting and believing in the Lord, but her life spiraled downward as her marriage fell apart and divorce seemed the only option. Feeling like a failure and angry at God, one day on her porch, she poured her heart out—honestly facing her life with Him. “I want a sign! I want You to prove to me that You exist, that You really do hear me when I pray. If you can part the sea, You can give me a simple sign.”

Rosene expected a bolt of lighting, a rainbow or an angel and left it at that. About a month later, she received a phone call asking if she would be interested in being a candidate for the Habitat for Humanity organization. After her house was built, she wrote:

I worked side by side with the most wonderful people I have ever met in my life. . . God sent me not one, but a dozen or more angels—those everyday, hard working, unselfish, God-fearing people who were sent (I believe) to prove to me that there is still good in people and not everyone is asking “What’s in it for me?” I have a beautiful home to prove this, but far more important, my faith is restored and my soul is free once more.

WHAT DOES THE PERFORMING STAGE LOOK LIKE?

First three of seven dimensions of the military bride:

Jehovah Sabaoth always victorious

The military Bride is the great host of the “Lord of hosts.” The Amplified Bible gives an interesting interpretation of Psalm 68:11, “The Lord gives the word [of power]; the women who bear and publish (the news) are a great host.” The New American Standard Bible version also says women in this verse. The New International Version says company, which leaves no one out. The point is, women are taking on the role of John the Baptist who prepared the way for Jesus the first time, saying, “ Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near” (Matt. 3:2). God birthed His Son through a willing servant, Mary. He appeared to the seeking women first after His resurrection. Then and today, they are proclaiming He is alive and coming again—the men coming along beside them.

Chuck Pierce encourages women when he writes, “The Hebrew word for ‘host’ is tsaba or Sabaoth, which connotes a military group that is always victorious. Such a host should strike fear in the camp of the enemy. Imagine being marched upon by countless determined ‘shebears’ proclaiming victory with every step!”[1] These she-bears know who they are. They know the B-E-A-R facts of faith and have become determined warriors.

Jehovah Sabaoth Lord hosts performing

Hannah was one such warrior. She could bear no children “and she made a vow and said, ‘O Lord of hosts, if Thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of Thy maidservant and remember me, and not forget Thy maidservant, but wilt give Thy maidservant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and a razor shall never come on his head’” (1 Sam. 1:11 NASB).

Hannah called upon the Lord of hosts to fight for her. God heard her agony and gave her a son, Samuel, who changed history. Likewise, Michelle H. sees herself as a very ordinary woman, but her story as very extraordinary. Like Hannah in the Bible, The Lord of hosts fought for Michelle and her husband and brought them victory. They reached the performing stage.

The Lord of hosts brings Michelle H. to the performing stage

Michelle and her husband prayed about how to have a family. When an adoption opportunity came along, they jumped on it. The only thing is that they did not pray specifically about whether this particular child should be theirs. At the last minute, the mother changed her mind and gave the baby to someone else.

Devastated, and after more prayer and seeking God, they decided that in vitro fertilization was the right decision for them, but on their anniversary of December 28, Michelle received a phone call while she was at school. On December 24, a baby boy was born and they could adopt him. They would be able to pick him up right away—the Monday following Christmas when school was to resume, but God intervened with His plan—Joshua Caleb.

Five years later, Michelle and her husband decided to pursue their previous decision. The procedure worked the first time. Twins were born! Two beautiful daughters—Donna Coleen and Catherine Michelle.

Michelle’s story of how Jehovah-Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts—who fights for her and is always performing for her—does not stop there. She is still on the front lines of battle. After three years, she applied for a high school teaching job. The decision to go back to teaching was difficult, but her husband told her, “If God wants you there, he’ll open the door; if not, you won’t get it.”

Michelle applied for a computer technology job (her master’s degree), but was encouraged to apply for the newly open math position. As it turned out, daycare had two openings for her girls, and she was hired to teach Algebra 1 to at-risk children who don’t want to be in school. She did not know what to expect. Her first class was children with downs syndrome who were not ready for Algebra.

She and other teachers in her public high school met to pray and intercede for their students. The Lord told Michelle, “You need to serve all these kids just like the ones you served at church in the youth group. If you don’t care for them, who will? They need to know that somebody cares about them.”

Michelle started writing notes, “Thank you for your hard work.” She mailed them to their house. The students came up to her and said, “I got your note!” One student followed her all afternoon wanting her to read that note to him. He had never gotten a “good” note from anyone before.

Michelle put her faith on the front lines with her family and at work. Proclaiming victory with every step, she said, “I had to step out first.”

The military Bride is the mature bride performing on 100% commitment, not necessarily ability

The Navy Seals provide a training program called BUDS, “Basic Underwater Demolition School.” During “hell week,” the trainees get about four hours sleep in five days, which allows the trainers to determine the degree of the students’ commitment. Trainers don’t look for just the best in everything done during this time, but to see if each individual is putting out everything 100%. Complainers are not tolerated.

BUDS’ unofficial motto is: “The only easy day was yesterday!”

Rolf Garborg, founder of Successful Living, Inc. Christian book distribution network in 1966 said, “God is not fired up about our ability or inability, but about our availability.” He is looking for individuals willing to put in everything from their heart twenty-four hours per day.

The military Bride is the mature bride who is performing on intelligence from headquarters

 

Capt. Matt in performing stage of service
Capt. Matt with little girl that was taken for an Iraqi newspaper

Captain Matt’s job with the 101 Airborne Division was Army intelligence in Iraq. On July 22, 2003, in a regular phone call he said, “We don’t know how reliable our intelligence is, but we think we have Saddam and his sons cornered in Mosul. Please pray.”

Matt’s mother immediately asked for prayers of all the Christians with whom she worked. One hour later, it was announced on the radio that a fire fight rendered victory over the evil sons of Saddam in Mosul.

Likewise, our regular contact with the Lord of hosts will let us in on the intelligence of headquarters  (in heaven) ahead of time, and in the present—when we are 100% committed and make ourselves available to Him.

Linda B. was especially hurried to get on the road to see her grandchildren after work one day. When she got in her car, she found her mind confused and could not remember where she was going! She circled around the parking lot trying to remember what she was doing. She found herself at the local Wal-Mart, bought something she did not need, and ran into a young person on the way out. Conversation led to the reality of the individual’s desire to commit suicide. Linda spoke hope to her and, with the help of others she got involved from her church and community, pointed her to Jesus Christ. Linda’s prior commitment to the Lord put her in contact with the One who directed her steps to meet the need of that young person, and Linda was glad she was a part of a team that day.

Jehovah Sabaoth Lord of hosts performing

On another day, after a season of trusting God with her daughter and son-in-law to have a child, Linda watched her daughter walk by. When she saw her, she heard the Spirit’s voice, “Keri’s pregnant.”

“Keri’s pregnant?” Linda repeated out loud. “Thank you, Lord!”

Unknown to Linda, her son-in-law was standing behind her when she said those words. He told Keri; she went to the doctor and found the words to be true. When they called Grandma and Grandpa to make the announcement, Linda said, “I know.”

The mature military bride in battle has intelligence from headquarters: “See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you” (Isa. 42:9).
