Spiritual Archery

I had a dream that revealed a strategy of warfare. God is calling us to smite the enemy in the spiritual realm. The Bible when referring to smite, talks about arrows.

The dream was this, I was walking and saw a person standing in front of a car. The car was being driven by the enemy. The car was positioned to hit the person head on, a direct hit. The enemy was laughing and grinning at the attempts of the body of Christ trying to save this person in front of the car. I believe we are being shown a condition of battle that’s not effective. We cannot fight in the 1st and 2nd heaven. We are to go boldly to the Throne of GOD with our Amazing Jewish Lawyer Jesus.

GOD showed me that the body of Christ fights the wrong way. He revealed that we fight a lot of our battles from the flesh which is the 1st heaven.

Proverbs 24:6-7Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

6 For by wise counsel you can wage your war, and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety.

7 Wisdom is too high for a [a]fool; he opens not his mouth in the gate [where the city’s rulers sit in judgment].

The first man of God tried to get the enemies attention so he wouldn’t hit the person. He was yelling stop, you’ll hit him! This did not work, the enemy kept heading towards him and ignored the believer. We don’t need to get the enemies attention to be effective in warfare, God fights the battle. Do not step into the devil’s playground. We are only mighty through God. Go to your Father who fights the battle for us by allowing him to place His hand upon ours with the bow and arrow as we come into agreement with HIS aim! God knows the weakness of the enemy and where to place the arrow.

Next a believer tried to rescue the person standing in front of the car. He then tried to physically remove him but could not. We cannot rescue people nor can we physically do the work for them. We are to allow GOD to route our arrows so we hit the bullseye and dismantle the enemy of any diabolical assignment written or spoken against us.

Psalm 18:14

And He sent out His arrows and scattered them; and He flashed forth lightnings and put them to rout.

Isaiah 49:4

Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and in empty futility; yet surely my right is with the Lord, and my recompense is with my God.

The third believer tried to stop the tire from crushing the person in front of the car. This did not stop the attack. This left the believer tired, frustrated and in a state of failure. Hearing from heaven breaks the captive free and binds up the broken hearted. The 3rd heaven releases strategy to conquer. Removing people does not keep them from the hit, we actually enable them to continue behavior by making a way with our flesh. However strategies can help the person align with the position of Christ to see truth which brings freedom. Our Dad can move mountains if we trust Him.

Matthew 21:21

And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.

Psalm 140:1

Rescue me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men.

2 Samuel 22:17-20

"He sent from on high, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. "He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me. "They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But the LORD was my support.. He also brought me forth into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me.”

We as believers cannot win a war in the natural. The natural approach only band aids the situation which takes us around the mountain for 20 years or more. The natural realm which is fighting in the 1st heaven is flesh and religion. The 2nd heaven is where the demonic are waging war with the Kingdom of Heaven. This is not a realm we are to fight in. We are not big and powerful like angels who serve us by fighting in the 2nd heaven just as Michael did with the Price of Persia. We are to fight in the 3ed heaven where Heaven touches earth. We are supernatural Fire breathing, sword swinging, crossbow specialist.

The weapons of our warfare are not of this world but mighty through God only. We are to overthrow and bring destruction to familiar spirits, strongholds and no curse should lite. Fighting in a realm of no effect causes arrows to hit the ground. Refute Pride and lofty things that come against the truth of the Kingdom. Take every thought captive and submit it in obedience to Jesus. Be fully submitted and obedient so we are secure and complete. Our security is in the Kingdom. Finally let your confidence be a fact that you are in Christ Jesus.

The dream continued as it switched scenes. I did not see the person get hit. God placed man directly on the steps leading to the Throne to ask the Father in Jesus name for Mercy and strategy. The dream spoke so loud and clear and God said. “Smite the enemy!” Then I started yelling! “Smite the Enemy” Smite the Enemy!” “Smite the Enemy!”
