HOLD THE LINE

by mara bochart

We have been and are still believing that the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, will win a second term! I will always support and give my heavenly and earthly vote to the party that stands for LIFE, LIGHT and ISRAEL. There are many prophetic voices declaring his victory (Amos 3:7). Even when social media and mainstream news announced that another candidate was president, I responded in my spirit, "No, he is not, it will be reversed." I felt emotions of fear and dread approaching but I saw myself in the frontlines of the battle, a spiritual battle, with many other prayer warriors, and the Lord commanded, "HOLD THE LINE!!!!"

"HOLD THE LINE! DO NOT RETREAT! DO NOT FALL BACK! WE STAND OUR GROUND WHEN EVERYTHING AROUND US IS SHAKING!"

The closest visual I could find of what I was seeing as a spiritual battle was a video with mounted soldiers on the frontline of a battle with their leader on a white horse. It reminded me of our Commander and Chief of Heaven's Armies, mounted on a white horse, and all His army surrounding Him on the frontline! The command, from the Lord, was to "HOLD THE LINE" - and not in any way to go forward in violence! (See and hear song lyrics at the end of this post.) Each soldier has a choice - surrender to their emotions, give in, fall back and retreat or hold their ground and just stand. We need great discernment and strength in these times.

For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ... 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 AMP

We live in this world, but we don’t fight our battles in the same way the world does. The weapons we use are not human ones. Our weapons have power from God and can destroy the enemy’s strong places. We destroy people’s arguments, and we tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 ERV

For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. Ephesians 6:12 HCSB

Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. Ephesians 6:13 AMP

Christ on a White Horse
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Revelation 19:11-16

The King of All the Earth
For the Pure and Shining One, by the prophetic singers of Korah’s clan
A poetic song
Go ahead and celebrate!

Come on and clap your hands, everyone! Shout to God with the raucous sounds of joy!
The Lord God Most High is astonishing, awesome beyond words!
He’s the formidable and powerful King over all the earth.
He’s the one who conquered the nations before us and placed them all under our feet.
He’s marked out our inheritance ahead of time, putting us in the front of the line, honoring Jacob, the one he loves.
Pause in his presence
God arises with the earsplitting shout of his people!

God goes up with a trumpet blast!
Sing and celebrate! Sing some more, celebrate some more!Sing your highest song of praise to our King!
For God is the triumphant King; the powers of earth are all his. So sing your celebration songs of highest praise to the glorious Enlightened One!
Our God reigns over every nation. He reigns on his holy throne over all.
All the nobles and princes, the loving servants of the God of Abraham, they all gather to worship. Every warrior’s shield is now lowered as surrendered trophies before this King. He has taken his throne, high and lofty, exalted over all! Psalm 47 TPT

Psalm 62
For the Music Director. According to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.

My soul waits in silence on God alone; from Him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my refuge; I will not be greatly shaken.
MEV

Amazing confirmation, in His perfect timing! As I was praying, writing and composing all the above words, the following song came on:

Battle Belongs  by Phil Wickham

When all I see is the battle, You see my victory
When all I see is the mountain, You see a mountain moved
And as I walk through the shadow, Your love surrounds me
There's nothing to fear now for I am safe with You
So when I fight, I'll fight on my knees
With my hands lifted high
Oh God, the battle belongs to You
And every fear I lay at Your feet
I'll sing through the night
Oh God, the battle belongs to You
And if You are for me, who can be against me? Yeah
For Jesus there's nothing impossible for You
When all I see are the ashes, You see the beauty
Thank You, God
When all I see is a cross, God, You see the empty tomb
Almighty fortress, You go before us
Nothing can stand against the power of our God
You shine in the shadow, You win every battle
Nothing can stand against the power of our God
Oh God, the battle belongs to You
Oh God, the battle belongs to You
