I was in prayer one morning in September 2016, when Holy Spirit started speaking to me about a chess game. I believe we are in the middle of it now.
That there’s never been a time like this before. That each piece has been weighed and measured with digital precision. Nothing out of sync. Nothing without purpose. Each move calculated and then checkmate.
What does that mean Holy Spirit? Checkmate? I know it means one wins and the other loses but what does it mean to Your Body?
I am moving the pieces with holy intent. The enemy is trying to outmaneuver this way and that, but he is finding it difficult for a full assault.
I am leaving him in a series of moves that look promising to him but his giddy enthusiasm turns his attention to only one part of the board.
Just when you think he’s got the upper hand I will deal My hand–Checkmate!
What is our part?
Prayers of agreement and thanksgiving that I am in control. I’m in control and have the victory. Repentance for yourselves and your nation. Your hands must be clean for the harvest that is coming. Prepare your hearts for complete trust in Me. You will need unwavering faith for the days ahead. All that you need is at your disposal waiting for a faith-filled request. I will lead you but you must follow to receive the blessing. There won’t be time to second-guess or wait for a committee vote.
Psalm 2:1-6 — No power can overpower God
Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed,[d] saying,
3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
Psalm 33:10-11 — God’s plans prevail over any others
The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Revelation 20:10 — Checkmate
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
