8 When the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up in search of David; and David heard of it and went out against them. 9 Now the Philistines had come and made a raid in the valley of Rephaim. 10 David inquired of God, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? And will You give them into my hand?” Then the Lord said to him, “Go up, for I will give them into your hand.” 11 So they came up to Baal-perazim, and David defeated them there; and David said, “God has broken through my enemies by my hand, like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore they named that place Baal-perazim
The Lord told me to send this personally to you today. It is the Word of transition. It is a word of anointing.
The first thing we notice: THE ENEMY HEARD THAT DAVID HAD BEEN ANOINTED….
There is one thing that stirs the devil! Its the anointing!!!! The level of anointing determines the force of the enemy army. David had come into his full destiny and anointing. The enemy came in “full force.” The enemy had come with ALL OF HIS STRENGTH. This means his defeat was total.
We learn that the anointing is poured on out over a new leadership generation. But here comes the test. Many come into a new level of ministry and into a mighty outpouring in their ministry. Then BAM…Here comes the devil with his army.
What did David do?
HE WAS IN HIS NEW POSITION, he had no fear…went to MEET THEM. The Body of Christ has had too much fear too long…its time to take our mantle and meet them.
David inquired…got God’s Word. God said He would give the enemy into the hands of his anointed.
How many receive the anointing and appointing and the devil comes with fear, shutting down our anointed place? How many times a Church a ministry comes into a new dimension and the devil sows divisions and controversies? Recognize it.
This is new season!!!! It is the season that God is about to give the enemy into your hand!!! All the lack, infirmity, division, gossip, persecution that has plagued your ministry, God is going to pour out Baal-Perazim over you…God is going to make the waters break forth…BREAKTHROUGH.
But the enemy did not come once, but twice. The first time the enemy lost his POWER, then the second lost his PLACE. God then gives you His POWER and HIS PLACE, which is peace and joy in the Holy Spirit!!!
The Lord caused the sound of His Hosts to be heard, because He goes before us to strike at the heart of our spiritual enemies.
There is coming a time when God shall pour out the Baal-Perazim anointing, you shall meet the enemy, you shall take away his gods, his power, then you shall take away his place in your lives.
Study for yourself the passage! See how God shall pour out His new anointing on your life. It is enough that the enemy plagues your family. It is enough he plagues your marriage, your finances, your church, your children.
I know this is Old Testament, but the New says: ” He took captivity captive!” Sums it up.
