"HOUR for WAR"

-Intro by Pam White:

Andrew - I emailed you the day I received this on June 9, 2004 because it 
blew
me away. I had just come out of a time of intense prayer where I heard in my 
spirit
a trumpet sound - three blasts (I never did find out if three blasts meant 
anything in
particular). The Lord said, "The trumpet has been sounded, do you not hear 
it?"

This past month it has been back in my spirit VERY strong. I think it would 
do good
to remind us all of this word. We let that time pass us by. I don't know 
about you,
but I'm ready to mobilize. I do not want to "go around the mountain 
again"....
Let's sound the trumpet again! This is war!

"The HOUR FOR WAR"
-by A. Strom. (-Jun 2004).

My computer got hit by a bad virus yesterday. I had to
wipe my whole hard-drive and I lost over 4000 saved
emails from the past year or so. It was not a happy day.
In fact, I was pretty discouraged.

But I tell you something. I went and had a good hard-out
PRAY to God about everything and I came out of that
prayer-time more convinced than ever that we are in an
hour of MOBILISATION and aggressive battle. We are
not to sit back and "let everything happen". We are to
beat our pruning-hooks into spears and our plough-
shares into swords (-the 'sword of the Lord') and we are
to take the fight to the enemy like never before. The
Scripture tells us that "From the days of John the Baptist
until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and
the VIOLENT take it by force."  So are YOU "violent", my
friends? Or are you passive and nullified by a kind of
'fatalism' that declares "Whatever will be will be"? That
is not true Christianity. True Christianity has always
been WAR and battle and the clash of armies. So are
you "violent" or not? -Only the VIOLENT will take the
kingdom in this hour. -God has spoken this for years.

There are some on this List who have been "waiting"
for so long that to get out of their "peace-time" mode
would takes a lightning bolt and a "shaking" far beyond
what is healthy. I find it sad that it is not just the
CHURCHES that need a good "shake" but some of us
so-called 'Revival' types as well! There are some here
who are about as "violent" as marshmallows. It is high
time for that to change.

To those who say that we should still be in "waiting"
mode, I pose this simple question:  When does the 'wait'
end? When entire generations have been lost? When
millions upon millions sitting in our churches are
eternally ruined? When the gays and transvestites and
New Agers have so taken over that they possess the
very gates of our cities? Is the devil to "take the youngest"
forever?

I love the Scripture from the story of David and Goliath
that says, "And David spoke to the men that stood near
him, saying, What shall be done to the man who kills
this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel?
For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should
defy the armies of the Living God?" (1 Sam 17:26). And
the record tells us that with no armour and with 5 smooth
stones as his only weapon, David RAN FULL-TILT towards
that Philistine, to see His God avenged and his people's
reproach removed.

We hear a lot about people with "a heart like David" in
these last days. Let me tell you - David was a man of
WAR. A man of 'violence'. A man of action. He would
not put up with His God being put to an open shame.
I wonder where the Lord will find His "Davids" today?

We live in one of the darkest hours in the history of our
planet. "As it was in the days of Noah and Lot" declares
the Scripture, and so it rapidly becomes. So where is
the light shining in this darkness? Is it you? Is it me?
Or do we slumber on?

Some of us have been "waiting" for 20 years for the
'right time' (-me included). Are we never to act at all?
Do we just "float" on, excusing our lack of urgency and
burden with the trite reply that we are "waiting on the
Lord"? Will such feeble reasonings ever find a hearing
in the courts of God?

There is a battle raging. It has never ceased. It is the
battle for the hearts and souls of men. Let the
"spectators" and idle onlookers clear the field. Let those
without courage or urgency or burden retire from the
scene. It is time for God's "mighty men of valor" to come
forth. The hour is late and the time will soon arrive when
no man can work. "In season and out of season" said
Paul, and it is time for us to heed his words. If ever there
was an hour for the "Gideon's 300" it is now.

Years ago God spoke these words to me: "WHO DARES
WINS". -It is not enough to simply pray. For many have
prayed and yet not taken the kingdom. And neither is it
enough to prophesy. For many have brought endless
"words" and yet the kingdom remains undisturbed. The
phrase "Who DARES Wins" is the motto of the British
SAS - men of action who operate behind enemy lines
and who revel in courage and fighting spirit. So it will
be with the great end-times Army of God.

If you don't have the stomach for it, hang back and do
nothing. Nobody will notice.

But let the mighty ones of God arise in this hour. Let
those who have been prepared of God in the caves and
the deserts come forth. You have awaited a trumpet blast.
Do you not hear it?

Gird up your loins, you mighty men. Prepare for war.
Let the armies of the enemy tremble. Arm of the Living
God, put on strength! The Lord is about to arise and
scatter His enemies. Can you not scent the blood in the air?

-With these words I place the trumpet to my mouth and
give a loud cry on this day - June 9th, 2004. It is time
for the mighty ones of God to come forth.

God bless you all.
