This Ends Now

  • Then David said to the Philistine, 'You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin; but I come to you in the name of Yahweh of Armies, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. Today, Yahweh will deliver you into my hand. I will strike you, and take your head from off you. 1 Samuel 17:45 WEB

    As we worked at our buffing machines that morning polishing brass, the death metal beside me was blasting so loudly that I could barely make out the words of the audio Bible that I was trying to listen to in my headphones. I had it turned up as far as it would go, but the guy beside me had a huge boom box, and it was so loud that I could feel my shirt moving from the bass, my teeth hurt, and it was 6 AM in the morning. Now I have been a musician for twenty five years, and for many of those I played bass in classic rock groups. When I tell you that it was loud, you can take that to the bank.

    I had been fasting most of the week and praying in the Spirit at my buffing machine. I was listening to the Word and trying to prepare for an upcoming test in Bible college that night, while mindlessly polishing brass during the day. I began to feel the words 'This Ends Now' rise up in my spirit. It was not fleshly anger, but a righteous indignation that was inspired by the Holy Spirit within me. He had grown tired of the darkness overshadowing the place.

    Though you could not have heard me over the noise, I stopped, puts my parts down, and spoke this out loud: 'I claim this place in the name of Jesus Christ and I declare it to be Holy Ground! satan if you have anyone here that you want to keep, then you better get them out now because this place is coming to Jesus Christ!' Then I went back to work.

    When the morning break came, the guy with the death metal suddenly unplugged his giant boom box, packed up his things and quit. I never saw him again. The people that stayed turned to God one by one and we all began to attend church together. People taped scriptures to their buffing machines, and the centerfolds in the bathroom came down. The Bible played over the intercom of the building all day. They could not get enough of Jesus. The words that I spoke, which no one heard in the natural, had a devastating impact in the spiritual realm.

    In the scripture above, David was standing there with his brothers listening to Goliath rant when he felt the Holy Spirit inside of him say: 'This ends now.' David declared what would happen, then he stepped out in faith to meet the giant. David said 'I will strike you down and cut off your head' then he went and did exactly that. David declared the word, and he followed it with action.

    Sometimes God will put us in a situation that we don't like in order to bring a change. You may not be there for yourself, but for others, and He has already prepared you for the fight. Our weapons are not carnal, and our enemy is not made of flesh and blood. The real battle is happening in the spirit realm (2 Corinthians 10:4). Take a stand for God, proclaim His word, and then align your actions with it. Watch the victory come to pass.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You give me wisdom and let me hear Your voice clearly. Please help me to know when it is time to take a stand, and when I should keep my head down. I am Your's Lord, have Your way in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.'

That's right satan, my God is Bigger and Stronger than you could ever dream of being! You come to me with hurt feelings, separation, confusion, unforgiveness, manipulated emotions, unright priorities, and threats of divorce; but I come to you in the name of Jehovah-Rapha, the Lord Who Heals; Yahweh of Armies, the God of Angel Armies, whom you have defied. Jason and I have entered into a sacred covenant with our God and you have no authority here! Today I will pick up the sword that you have pointed at my marriage and I will take your head off with it! Let my marriage go in the name of Jesus Christ! I declare my marriage is preserved through eternity! With the spiritual authority given me through Christ Jesus I retrieve my marriage from the jaws of the evil one! I do this is the Mighty name of Jesus Christ! Amen and Amen!!!
