I recently had a vivid dream where the LORD spoke to me clearly regarding it when I awoke. He said, “The only weapon that will be useful for my Church in the hour that is to come is the illuminated sword of the Spirit.” In a nutshell, it is imperative that we devour and meditate on the Word today. It is not enough to do memorization or topical reading. In order to stand, one will need to have a personally revelatory knowledge of the Word. Today, make the time for the Light of the Word to shine upon your innermost being. Allow it to grip you, transform you, become your Source and life!
