Advance Now While the Enemy is Down!

Hi, friends! This is a word my husband recently received from the Lord, as we felt led to share it with you all here on my blog. I hope it encourages you today! -Angie

The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. | Deuteronomy 28:7

Today while I was at work, I heard the Lord say, “Advance now while the enemy is down!” As I pondered this phrase, I knew that this was a word for the Body of Christ in this hour! Let’s dive into it:

Military Tactics

In the strategies of war and warfare—both in recent and ancient times—it has always been a great military tactic to advance onward during the times when the enemy is confused or withdraws. When the enemy experiences unexpected or immeasurable blows from the battle, there is a brief window of opportunity that opens for the opposing side. The enemy has to regroup, refocus, rebalance, and reevaluate the situation at hand. It is during this time that the Army of God needs to advance the most! Advancing at this moment causes the enemy to make quick (and ultimately, wrong) decisions. This is because the pressure of the advancing Army forces him to do so.

This past week, we have seen an unmeasurable blow to the enemy with the release of the new movie, Unplanned. This movie exposes the raw and real truth about the dehumanization of the unborn by abortion. The film ratings are high, and word is spreading, but now is not the time to celebrate. Instead, this is a kairos moment for the Body of Christ to advance the Kingdom of God all the more.


The kingdom of darkness is being exposed now more than ever, so this is the time for prayer warriors to pray.

This is the time for the Watchmen to stand on the wall at their posts.

This is the time to pray for our president and elected officials.

This is the time to sow your seed into fruitful ministries.

This is the time to let your voice be heard in the courts of Heaven and in the houses of government in this land.

This is the time for intercessors to intercede for the changing of the tide for this nation.

Let it be known that the enemy is afraid of you now more than ever, because Light always exposes the things hidden in darkness. Write a letter, tell a friend, sow a seed, visit your elected officials, see this movie, and pray for our land. Truly this is our time to advance the Kingdom of God!

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 (2 Chronicles 7:14).
