Word for 2018 – Saul is Dead (or Battle for Authority)

1 Samuel 31 – 2 Samuel 2

I was led first to 1 Samuel 31 (being December 31, the last day of the year) and I saw a link between today’s date and there being only 31 chapters in 1 Samuel, and in this chapter, Saul dies. I heard the Lord say “The days of Saul are coming to a close; those days of judging by outward appearances – by sight and sound, rather than by My Spirit; those days of leading by your own personality, and the traditional religious system; however even Saul was My Anointed so do not touch him, for he is set in position until the appointed time.  Though I have given you authority in the spirit, I will require you now to walk in it.  Some of the mighty will fall, some you will love.  Grieve, but let not your heart be troubled. Saul died by his own sword.”

Psalm 149:6 “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,  To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples, To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron, To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones. Praise the Lord!

The weapons of your warfare are not carnal, not earthly, but are mighty to the pulling down of strongholds.  As you praise the Lord with shouts of praise and triumph (high praises) and as you learn how to wield your two-edged sword with love (the truth of the Word of God in love), it is the Lord who executes, punishes, and binds.  I am sending you out as sheep among wolves therefore be wise as snakes but innocent as doves.

“Before you are able to overcome, you must be sound in My love for you. David was sound in the love I had for him and he knew that he was first, a son.  You will not be able to walk through what lies ahead unless you are rooted and grounded in My love.  If the accusations to your thought life are able to stick, go back to square one of My love for you, from a Father to a child.  A Bride cannot receive nor give love to her Groom if she has been unable to receive love first from her Father.”

My Love
My love for you is eternal. You are the apple of My eye.  I am a rewarder and desire to give you good gifts.  I always provide for you.  I have a plan and a destiny for you.  I am not willing that you should be lost. I want to heal you and I am able to heal you. I have compassion and passion for you.  My love is stronger than the grave and many waters cannot quench this love.  You are blessed with every gift in the heavenly realms.  I am  for you and not against you.  I discipline those I loves as sons. I desire a relationship of acknowledgment and trust.

Authority
Submit and honor the governing authorities and you will walk in authority.  The need for legitimate (backed by My Power) authority will increase in this nation, as lawlessness arises.  Don’t look to be crowned by men.  Be careful to guard your heart against lawlessness.  Little things you might have gotten away with before, such as doing five miles over the speed limit, or parking in a no-parking zone, will be judged in mercy, but will be swift.  I will judge lawlessness in My people however small it may be.  I will guide you with My eye.  Don’t be tempted to say, along with the world “who sees me?” And don’t wait for a word from Me to do what you know to do.  Is it love?  Move in it.  Is it faith?  Act in it?  Is it mercy? Judge by it. Is it truth?  Speak it.  Does someone need healing? Heal them.  Does someone need prayer?  Pray.

Recognize the authority you have and walk in it.  You do not have to take authority; you have been given it.

Exposure
Exposure of the practice of iniquity will continue to increase.  Be careful of the shouts of triumph as the world continues to be exposed for its sin; I am not finished judging My church.  If you are found to be in a sin, repent quickly for your adversary will seek to destroy you with accusation through people.  Be humble and surrendered to Me; acknowledging Me in all your ways.   Because of your enemy, I will discipline you more closely, and as you surrender to Me, you will sense my pleasure all over you.

Rebellion
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.  While I have given you authority to walk in and govern, the lawless will continue to illegitimately take the authority upon themselves to control and manipulate.  You will see the darkness of witchcraft come out of hiding and be broadcast through the airwaves, the television and radio and over the internet.  I say “increase” because it is already happening but it will soon threaten your ability to be free with what you speak.  You’ve seen a little of it, but it will be everywhere and in your face.  Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.”

Civil War
The Battle between Legitimate (backed with My power) and Illegitimate Authority (not backed by My power) will bring a civil war to the United States.
(Darlene’s note: A civil war has been prophesied for about a decade or more but the time is now.  This is not a war between the right and the left. It is not a war between male and female.  It is not a war between states or nations, but rather a war of Legitimate and Illegitimate authority.)

Church Growth and Decline
There will be growth in the church like not seen before; a movement toward the House of Prayer/Praise (David was king over Judah, and Judah means praise).   As this growth increases, there will be blessings released toward those who have been in traditional religion for most of their lives but are coming out of the religious church – they will not curse the tradition but will give it a proper burial out of respect – yet will move on (2 samuel 2:4-7)  They, like the men of Jabesh –gilead, will join David’s army.

Ish-Bosheth – (Ish-bosheth means “the man of shame”)
If Saul represents traditional religion and judging by sight and sound, and outward appearances, Ish-bosheth, being his son in the flesh, will be an amplified version of all these and will seek to govern by illegitimate authority.  Traditional churches will rise in power, but only because they will sense that authority has been removed (Saul is dead) and so they will try whatever means to remain on top, and many on the political left AND political right will seek to side with them; they will not be interested in seeking God but rather power.  Watch the mainstream denominations this year.  Many will come out of them like the men of Jabesh-gilead, and give a proper burial, but many will join them as well.

Redeem the Time
“The days are evil, therefore redeem the time. What are you doing that adds no value to your life?  What conversations?  What games?  How much time on the internet?  Real fellowship does life with each other.  Real fellowship is accountable and holds others accountable.  Real fellowship lays down a life (comforts, plans) when necessary.  Real fellowship sees the need before it is obvious to everyone else.  How can real fellowship happen unless your time is redeemed?   I will command blessings to fall from heaven where real fellowship occurs. Do you need an answer from Me?  Check your relationships within the Body, beginning at home.”

Deception – An Angel of Light
“Truth” is a Man and is found in the person of Christ.  Many will be led astray by truth that looks, smells, feels and sounds scriptural or resonates with personal beliefs and feelings.  Many who followed darkness will come into the True Light but many who followed after Christ will begin to follow the Angel of Light – choosing spiritual deeds apart from Me – and will think they are following Me and speaking for Me.  Truth is a Man and all truth is found in the Person of My Son.  Check your heart daily to see if you are in the faith – by acknowledging Him and exalting Him.  The more your conversations exalt spiritual truth above Him, let this be a sign to you.  Do not be deceived.

The civil war will be between Legitimate (Power-backed) and Illegitimate authority.  One is given, the other is taken by force.  This is not about the violent taking the kingdom of heaven by force – this is about authority being taken by force.  Authority is only taken by force when it feels threatened.  And it only feels threatened when it is not there.

“Legitimate authority is covered with My favor.  Legitimate authority is backed with My power.  Legitimate authority is covered in true light.  Do not be afraid of the darkness.  It has no power over you”.

  1. I was only given a glimpse of the coming year – most people look for specifics. I don’t often get specifics unless it’s a personal word. The Lord did emphasis to me, however, this will be a year of exposure – it will increase. Deception will be on the rise as exposure is a focus but He gave me more of how He desires His people to respond in the midst.

    Within one week of posting this, I saw a major transition of leadership in my own church. Unexpected. I was partially prepared because the Lord had told me to walk in love, walk in the authority I already have, redeem the time and expect that some we love will leave but also some will remain.

    I continued to look back on this because He first deals with my own heart. There is coming a mighty exposure of top government officials and other leadership roles. He wants me and you not to be shaken but also not to do a victory dance because He isn’t finished judging His church. There will be a mighty shaking this year that is unprecedented.

    Keep your focus.

  2. Read this AFTER posting above comment….

    Proverbs 24:17Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
    And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;
    18
    Or the Lord will see it and be displeased,
    And turn His anger away from him.

  3. I woke up to the news this morning how the grammy’s got even more political than ever before – and the President bashing just increased.

    This is one example of legitimate and illegitimate authority. Hollywood has no authority yet will use their platform to act like they do. President Trump has legitimate authority. The authority that is legitimate will be backed by the full power of God, but illegitimate authority is ‘taken by force” but will have to get louder because there is no real power behind them.

  4. The day after the SOTU address – It was clear that POTUS was in authority, and walked in that authority will full confidence that Authority in Heaven was backing him. Equally as clear, you could tell by the lack of hand-clapping, smiles, and glue on the seats, those who were not. Some of these still think they are. Illegitimate vs Legitimate authority. It becomes clear.

  5. This video is by Praying Medic who is decoding some Qanon posts. Qanon is someone believed to be in Intel that has been posting anonymously – but his credibility is such that respected folks like Praying Medic (David Joseph), and Jerome Corsi are following and decoding. Brenden Dilley is NOT following Qanon however he has another source “in the know” whose reports are similar to Qanon’s.

    That said, about the 14 minute mark Praying Medic says that Q is dropping crumbs and hints about a second revolutionary war and the purpose being who is in control of our nation and the world.

    I post this because it is what I saw regarding “:authority”… who has it and who does not and who wants it. There will be an increase over who gets jurisdiction/power/control/authority.

    Today I was looking at Revelation 6 – the pale horse…. it’s the only one that was actually given authority/power/control/jurisdiction….. the white horse was given a crown so the people allowed his authority because of his position. The red horse was given power to take peace from people and allow them to kill each other… he was given a sword… the Greek word here indicates a large knife but small sword… People killing people has to do with consciences seared, no regard for relationships (I saw this too above…. that is why I said remember the Lord’s love AND be in fellowship)…

    BE IN FELLOWSHIP AND GET YOUR RELATIONSHIP RIGHT WITH THE LORD… REMEMBER HIS LOVE

    The black horse is not said to have power but scales and cries out…

    I looked in Strong’s Concordance to see that while the red horse is said to have power in translations, it is not actually translated in Strong’s… it is added….

    What does that mean? I don’t know. I’m,m putting pieces together…. And I’m seeing the Lord validate the original word I had for this year.

  6. Everyday the Lord is confirming this word in small but significant ways. Focusing today on judging by the Spirit alone. We are in such a heightened place of deception that it will be IMPERATIVE that you hear from the Lord AND you allow others to hear from the Lord. You cannot pass on information and expect it to be received right away, ,even amongst closest friends. PRAY for your friends that they receive by the Holy Spirit. ALLOW them to hear from the Lord.

  7. Redeem the Time
    “The days are evil, therefore redeem the time. What are you doing that adds no value to your life? What conversations? What games? How much time on the internet? Real fellowship does life with each other. Real fellowship is accountable and holds others accountable. Real fellowship lays down a life (comforts, plans) when necessary. Real fellowship sees the need before it is obvious to everyone else. How can real fellowship happen unless your time is redeemed? I will command blessings to fall from heaven where real fellowship occurs. Do you need an answer from Me? Check your relationships within the Body, beginning at home.”

    I have been brought back around to this for the past few days. There is a cyber war going on right now. Spewing out words on the internet, via social media and video and television. Cyberbullying is increasing. I see a revolution that very much involves the internet. I feel the Lord is saying to redeem the time – don’t get caught up in the onslaught of meme’s and words and silliness – it’s like a Trojan Horse. Store up treasures in heaven – real relationships – real fellowship… Don’t drop out of the internet completely unless told by the Lord but VERY definately stop getting caught up. It’s a trap.

  8. When I first wrote this, on December 31, I had no idea how on point it was (without getting specific because I didn’t know specifics) I was led to 1 Samuel 31 – Saul’s death. Then 2 Samuel 1 – the grieving of Saul – then 2 Samuel 2 – David’s anointing and the men of Jabesh gilead who gave Saul a proper burial and Saul’s brother Ish-bosheth who would seek out to gain authority when he had none.

    Today, I am highlighting this paragraph:

    Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. While I have given you authority to walk in and govern, the lawless will continue to illegitimately take the authority upon themselves to control and manipulate. You will see the darkness of witchcraft come out of hiding and be broadcast through the airwaves, the television and radio and over the internet. I say “increase” because it is already happening but it will soon threaten your ability to be free with what you speak. You’ve seen a little of it, but it will be everywhere and in your face. Pay attention to My Spirit and I will give you what to say in appointed times.”

    Those who have lost authority are feeling it. They think they are still in power so they try to “take it by force”…. The sentence “it will soon threaten your abi9lity to be free with what you speak” part…

    On Feb 21 there was a Twitter lock out. Conservatives were losing followers by the thousands and many were locked out. Twitter’s response was they were getting rid of bots but liberals did not have such an experience.

  9. This is a video by Praying Medic who is decoding Qanon’s messages and presenting them in a way for the average person to understand. It confirms the word about those who lost authority trying to take it. God’s power is not backing them so you can see how manipulative they can be.

  10. You will see the darkness of witchcraft come out of hiding and be broadcast through the airwaves, the television and radio and over the internet. I say “increase” because it is already happening but it will soon threaten your ability to be free with what you speak. You’ve seen a little of it, but it will be everywhere and in your face.

    I just posted the link to three conservative commentators; the first is Diamond & Silk who are STILL being censored by facebook, the next is Praying Medic, author, speaker, vlogger and blogger on many topics but mainly in this season on Qanon, and Just Informed Talk, Christian vlogger on Qanon. These have been targeted and censored for their views.

    The Lord said it would increase this year and will be everywhere. He will also increase your dream language, your spirit language, and will open the ears of others to hear parables and speak them.
