THE FLYING DRAGON

During one of the times while in intense, persistent prayer  refused to give sleep to my eyelids. Something unusual happened; my feet were led into my youngest daughter’s room where I remained for many hours, but shortly after being there a long dragon accompanied by little imps made their way into her room. This reminded me of a time I had fasted for a length of time before the LORD and as I lay upon my bed, my body was in a weakened state between sleep and wake; above me, a flying dragon was in a fury was flying directly towards me. The Word spoke from Revelation chapter 12:3-10 NEW KJV. (3) “And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.” (4) “His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born.” (5) “She bore a male child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up to God and His throne. Please continue to read, (6) “Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God that she should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” (7) “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon and the dragon and his angels fought;” (8) “but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.” (9) “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (10) “Then I heard a voice saying in heaven, “Now Salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of God; and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. (11) “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Now, as I faced the dragon and his imps, the Word spoke to me this time from Revelation chapter 13:3-7 (3) “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.” As the dragon launched his attack on my daughter; he could not carry it out for as I lay upon her bed I was actually standing in the gap for her. The battle raged on in the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ until 6 a.m. the dragon and his imps made their exit in defeat. The Word spoke from Isaiah 59:19 “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” The question is, though, Are you and I worshiping the dragon and bowing to a corrupt system? Are you and I falling prey to the devices of the flying dragon? (4) “So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; saying “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (5) “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.” (6)”Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in the heaven. (7) “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.” What you have been enduring, will you continue to stand up for righteousness and the truth of the Word of God even though you could be at your wits end so to speak? It may seem like everything you depended on has now fallen apart. What am I going to do, you may ask? The answer is in Jesus Christ. Take your place sit in heavenly places, even though the battle continues to rage on every side – it may feel like you are going through some deep dark waters. The very foundation you are standing on is being shaken. The Word is speaking again from John chapter 4:4 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” The Word continued to speak, but this time from the book of Deuteronomy chapter 28:7 “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.” Continue to fast and pray consistently, be relentless in prayer, pray the Word and speak the Word to every situation. Let the fruit of your lips sing the high praises unto Yahweh; always walk in faith and obedience. Your obedience and the unction to pray without ceasing will put the flying dragon too, flight. Satan is the flying dragon.
