The other day at the coffee shop I was reading
and at times people watching and this tall guy walked
out of coffee shop that I see all the time, and I
heard, “Where have all the tall men gone?”

The Lord didn’t speak more right away, but today as I was reading my bible there, the message came…

“ Where oh where have the mighty gone? Where oh where are those who will stand against the evil in the land and proclaim My promises from the rooftops?  Busy, busy, busy, men always working but where are those that take delight in Me? When will you bow to My will over your will? I am NOT afar off as you think!! And this is the hour of the great revealing. You will, if you take the time to learn and KNOW ME, and how much I love you, come higher beloved of God.  For you are My sons of glory and sons of Thunder! I will shepherd you Myself so you will understand what is required of you in this hour.

For the battle has increased and I need My MIGHTY MEN to DECLARE and PROCLAIM!  Come and I will give you My strategies. For these are days which will try men’s souls.  I will MOVE some of you physically to be in the place where I have called you to RULE in the midst of your enemies!  My compassion will be poured out as well as My Spirit of MIGHT, that you will be able to see others as I see them!  Repent of any anger or bitterness in your hearts, so that you will be able to RECEIVE all the wisdom I have for you.

You will fight along side many Deborahs’ for I have chosen many women among the Mighty ones and you will have to change your paradigm from religious teachings to do My will!  MANY are the challenges ahead. You will need My wisdom, without relying on your own. Do NOT walk in PRESUMPTION!  Many of you say, “It’s about relationship, not religion” yet you follow the wisdom of man instead of seeking MY PRESENCE and MY WILL.  Lean on Me for My ways are unlimited  and I will give you KEYS to make it through the times at hand.

Lay down all pride and depend on ME!  For I AM Your FOREVER LOVE & I will NOT disappoint you !  The sons of TERROR will be brought low but not without the cost of many lives.  YOU MUST STAND TALL in this hour and not back down.  I will give you GREAT GRACE to walk in MY HOLINESS, and to defeat the enemy forces of evil.  WORSHIP ME in the beauty of holiness. Wash your feet daily and wash each others’ feet daily. Proclaim My WORD over your families, saved or unsaved.  STAND and again I say STAND and I will lift you up into the heavens to see the battle from MY perspective! “

Scriptures re STANDING:

Eph 6:11-19 NKJV
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints —  19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,

Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? 10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!"
