Stand firm. Don’t back down. Don’t relent. Don’t give up one centimeter of territory that you have taken. Stand firm, I say! The enemy has come against you in cruel and unusual ways. He is attempting to intimidate and convince you to step back. Don’t do it. Hold your ground. You are standing on high and holy ground…Kingdom territory. Hold your place! Reinforcements are on the way to advance and propel you fully into your promised land. Hold fast! The circumstances that you see are but a device of the enemy to cause you to doubt, fear, and hopefully retreat. But you are not to doubt or fear for your current circumstances are but temporal and subject to imminent change. Even now those that be with you are more than those that be with the enemy. Do not be deceived or intimidated. Hold your ground for this is not the time for retreat, but in fact the time of your final advance to totally secure the enemy’s territory for the Kingdom is upon you. The enemy knows and is using this window of opportunity to attempt to turn you back. Stand fast and prepare to advance in the strength of your Lord God Almighty!
II Kings 6:
16And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
