CALL TO EQUIP
By Yolanda Ballard
You are coming up to a new dimension in warfare, and I want you to be ready to exercise your authority like never before. Yes,
I want you to take a stand for the land, and decree the promises that I have made to you. You need to rise up in faith, and accept nothing less than the best that I have for you.
No more are you to go about
like a chicken scratching in the dirt, but you are to rise up to be the eagle I called you to be, soaring high above the powers and principalities, and using your own storms and trials of life to lift you up.
you are seated with Me at the right hand of My Father, the place of power, strength and authority, and I have given you all the weapons of warfare that you need to be able to take the land and to excel in the calling that I have placed upon you.
This is the day of the latter rain outpouring, and the enemy is going about like a lion devouring all that is a threat to him. So you need to be ready, covered with My armor of light, watching unless you are devoured. Yes, the
enemy is no respecter of persons. Young or old, rich or poor, he is ready to take them all captive and yes, many are already captive and don't even know it.
So do not become comfortable in My righteousness feeling
that it is all it takes to make it in for it takes a lot more. It takes watching, and praying, and fasting, and keeping yourself pure. Gather together with the saints, and worship Me, and feast upon My word. Get rid of all forms of pride, hypocrisy, and compromise,
and humble yourself like a small child and trust Me.
Yes, draw close to My side, and just listen to what I have to say. Be attentive to My truth for there is a famine in the land. Do not take it lightly the
freedom that you have. Guard what you have, or the enemy will rob you. Yes, do not take it for granted that you have a place to gather together and that you have those who cover you and love you. Yes, they have given their life for your care in My word. They
are your overseers.
I have raised up pastors, teachers, prophets, apostles, and all the rest to equip you with your own ministry, but you must submit, and take advantage of the gifts they have to offer. Yes,
this is the day of the latter rain outpouring, and you must be ready.
Wake up, you slacker; rise up from your sleep, for the day is at hand. Do not waste your time. Use it wisely to prepare in My presence. Do
not take it for granted the freedom that you have. Hide My word deep in your heart so that it can take root and grow into a giant oak tree that no one can tear down.
Yes, this is the time and the hour to rise
up to prepare yourself in My power. Make yourself ready for I am calling My troops together to be one in unity, having one mind, and in one accord. No more are you to bicker over petty differences, and taking your sword against one another.
Stand behind your shield of faith, and use your sword against the enemy, and love one another. Be understanding, and kind hearted, and cover over a multitude of sins. Cast down vain imaginings against one another, and always
believe the best.
Remember that love is your greatest weapon against the enemy and can repel all forms of evil. So wake up, and be set free, and rejoice, for this is the day of victory for you!!

AT THE FATHER'S FEET
Some Promises to Speak
14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk
and not be faint.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will
strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
13 For I am the LORD your
God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
2 When you pass through
the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
10 Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
1 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom
for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
3Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty
things, which thou knowest not.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to
all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil,
and he will flee from you.
1 John 1:9
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins
and purify us from all unrighteousness.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much
blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in
prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and
courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
3 I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies.
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
15 and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
5 You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.
money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
6 Start children off on
the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
5 The one who is victorious
will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that
you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will
guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
4 By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches,
and honour, and life.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
14 Is anyone among you sick?
Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What
shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though
you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
2 Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
13 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress. 14 He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains. 15 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, 16 for he breaks down gates of bronze
and cuts through bars of iron.
13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be
glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. 15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell
in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses
knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and
you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks fora fish, will give him a snake instead?
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
