The Encounter with the Angel named “Overcomer.”
During the worship on 04-22-18, the heavens opened and angels began to sing with the people. Then a great angel descended, and he was clothed in a purple robe, with gold trim, golden
slippers, and a golden sash, which said, “Overcomer” on it.
The Angel said, “My name is Overcomer, and I am here to ignite the Overcomers this year.”
He held a flaming torch in his hand. He
came down and touched his torch to the burning torch over the Global Fire Church here. When the angels torch touched the Global Fire torch, it flamed even higher. This was a new Heavenly commission to Global Fire.
I asked the Angel where
he had been before in the Word, He said, “As I was with Gideon, so I will be with you.”

overcomers are people of war
Joel 2:7-9, 11
They run like warriors; They climb the wall like soldiers. They each march [straight ahead] in line, And they do not deviate from their paths. They do not crowd each other;
Each one marches in his path. When they burst through the defenses (weapons), They do not break ranks. They rush over the city, They run on the wall; They climb up into the houses, They enter at the windows like a thief. The Lord utters His voice before His
army, For His camp is very great, Because strong and powerful is he who [obediently] carries out His word. For the day of the Lord is indeed great and very terrible [causing dread]; Who can endure it?
The Overcoming anointing that empowers
us to defeat everything that hinders:
Judges Chapter 6,7
Then the Israelites did evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord gave them into the hand of Midian for seven years. The
[powerful] hand of Midian prevailed against Israel. Because of Midian the sons of Israel made for themselves the dens (hideouts) which were in the mountains, and the caves and the [mountain] strongholds. For it was whenever Israel had sown [their seed] that
the Midianites would come up with the Amalekites and the people of the east and go up against them.
So they would camp against them and destroy the crops of the land as far as Gaza, and leave no sustenance in Israel as well as no
sheep, ox, or donkey. For they would come up with their livestock and their tents, and they would come in as numerous as locusts; both they and their camels were innumerable. So they came into the land to devastate it. So Israel was greatly impoverished because
of the Midianites, and the Israelites cried out to the Lord [for help].
Now it came about when they cried out to the Lord because of Midian, that the Lord sent a prophet to the Israelites, and he said to them, “Thus says the
Lord, the God of Israel, ‘I brought you up from Egypt and brought you out of the house of slavery. And I rescued you from the hand of the Egyptians and from the hand of all who oppressed you, and drove them out before you and gave you their land, and
I said to you, “I am the Lord your God; you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you live.” But you have not listened to and obeyed My voice.’” Now the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree at Ophrah,
which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, and his son Gideon was beating wheat in the wine press [instead of the threshing floor] to [hide it and] save it from the Midianites. And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, “The Lord is with
you, O brave man.”
But Gideon said to him, “Please my lord, if the Lord is with us, then why has all this happened to us? And where are all His wondrous works which our fathers told us about when they said, ‘Did
not the Lord bring us up from Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and put us into the hand of Midian.” The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this strength of yours and save Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?”
But Gideon said to Him, “Please Lord, how am I to rescue Israel? Behold, my family is the least [significant] in Manasseh, and I am the youngest (smallest) in my father’s house.” The Lord answered him, “I will certainly be with you,
and you will strike down the Midianites as [if they were only] one man.”
When Gideon heard the account of the dream and its interpretation, he bowed down in worship. Then he returned to the camp
of Israel and said, “Arise, for the Lord has given the camp of Midian into your hand.” He divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put trumpets and empty pitchers into the hands of all of them, with torches inside the pitchers.
And he said to them, “Look at me, then do likewise. When I come to the edge of the camp, do just as I do. When I and all who are with me blow the trumpet (ram’s horn), then all around the camp you also blow the trumpets and shout, ‘For the
Lord and for Gideon!’”
So Gideon and the hundred men who were with him came to the edge of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when the guards had just been changed, and they blew the trumpets and smashed the
pitchers that were in their hands. When three companies blew the trumpets and broke the pitchers, they held the torches in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow, and they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!”
Then each stood in his place around the camp; and the entire [Midianite] army ran, crying out as they fled. When Gideon’s men blew the three hundred trumpets, the Lord set the sword of one [Midianite] against another even throughout
the whole army; and the army fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel-meholah, by Tabbath.
Gideon put ignited torches in their pots!
The corporate fire routed the enemy!
2018- The Year of the Overcomer, those who move further through the door into more!
God is now breaking two things:
- Breaking personal and corporate mindsets and
personal and corporate barriers...
The mandate to overcome all that hinders us:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to
the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us, [looking away from all that will
distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, disregarding
the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]. Just consider and meditate on Him who endured from sinners such bitter hostility against Himself [consider it all in comparison
with your trials], so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
The invitation to us is to hear what the Spirit is saying, and the command to overcome in the process of transformation.
