War for the Kingdom
I have been realizing and becoming extremely aware of the concept and reality of the War for The Kingdom. I have made an emphasis in these random musings to encourage all of us to move beyond our 5 Senses mentality of the Kingdom of YHWH and be diligent in remembering we are dealing with a Kingdom and Our KING who is not held by the boundaries of which we are. Now the dial tunes in a little clearer to hear the voice I hope. The lens focuses a little more to see the One who has been heading this war for Six Thousand years. When I speak of war, most of us automatically tend to revert back to thinking of a battle of fear, one of death and destruction due to our earthly mindset of war. While this maybe true, it is time to recognize that the War for the Kingdom is a must, and is absolutely necessary. Even though it ha begun so long ago with an affront to usurp the Throne of YHWH by our enemy, it is a necessary fight on all fronts and I am convinced that most of us fail to see it.
The Six Day war I believe was a shadow, or a picture in the earthly realm of the ongoing greater battle that has been occurring for thousands of years in the Heavenly realm. I believe we can see many links to this if we were to pick it apart in depth. However, remember that a day is as a thousand years in the Kingdom, Six Days equates to Six thousand years. The War of Good vs Evil has been waged for 6 Millenia. And this War is essentially for the following..
A War for the Throne.
A War for the Temple/House
A War for the Mountain
A War for the Land of the King
A War for the People
A War for the Authority
A War for the entire Kingdom
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a war that is being fought by 2 Essential Orders-The Heavenly and the Earthly- that have been established by the King YHWH to seek and destroy the armies of darkness that seek to destroy all that is pure and good from our Creator. This is a War that is not only fought by these Orders, but is waged on several battlefields...The Heavens, The Earth , The Flesh, The Mind etc.
The KING YHWH has led His Army into battle and sent His Vassal, His Memra, His General also into the War for life that triumphs over death.
(2) “Yah is my strength and song, and He has become my deliverance. He is my ?l, and I praise Him – Elohim of my father, and I exalt Him.
(3) “YHWH is a man of battle, YHWH is His Name.
(2) But I pray, that when I am present, I might not be bold with that bravery by which I think to be bold against some who reckon us as if we walked according to the flesh.
(3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not fight according to the flesh.
(4) For the weapons we fight with are not fleshly but mighty in Elohim for overthrowing strongholds,
(5) overthrowing reasonings and every high matter that exalts itself against the knowledge of Elohim, taking captive every thought to make it obedient to the Messiah,
(6) and being ready to punish all disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
A few years ago I had done a short study and teaching on Numbers 33 being a legal document, a "Military Campaign Itinerary Text". Which is basically a legal document of a Kingdom conquering its enemies and resources so that all history is aware how a particular Kingdom was established.
I am now increasingly aware more and more that not only is Scripture a "Temple Text" in its entirety from Genesis One through Revelation 22, but it is also, a full blown LEGAL "Military Campaign Itinerary Text" from Genesis One to Revelation Twenty Two establishing the Victories of War against the Enemies of YHWH's KINGDOM.
I do not ever know if any of this stuff that conjures in my mind makes sense as I write it. However, we must be encouraged to keep fighting in each battlefield of the War as they arise . You and I play a crucial part if we recognize our enlistment and the job we must do as Servants to the King and to fight alongside HIM and His Army. Remember, that is a mandate of The King's nation..to Join in the War when it is necessary. They are many weapons to be had to gain this victory, we just have to choose the proper one for each individual battlefront but always realizing who is our strength.
Isa_54:17 “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall prove wrong. This is the inheritance of the servants of יהוה, and their righteousness from Me,” declares יהוה.
Psa 27:1 יהוה is my light and my deliverance; Whom should I fear? יהוה is the refuge of my life; Whom should I dread?
Psa 27:2 When evil-doers come against me To eat up my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, They shall stumble and fall.
Psa 27:3 Though an army encamps against me, My heart does not fear; Though battle comes up against me, Even then I would be trusting.
Psa 27:4 One matter I asked of יהוה – this I seek: To dwell in the House of יהוה All the days of my life, To see the pleasantness of יהוה, And to inquire in His Hĕḵal.
Psa 27:5 For in the day of evil He hides me in His booth; In the covering of His Tent He hides me; On a rock He raises me up.
Psa 27:6 And now my head is lifted up above my enemies all around me; And I offer in His Tent with shouts of joy; I sing, yea, I sing praises to יהוה.
Psa 27:7 Hear, O יהוה, when I cry with my voice! And show me favour, and answer me.
Psa 27:8 To my heart You have said, “Seek My face.” Your face, יהוה, I seek.
Psa 27:9 Do not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in displeasure; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O Elohim of my deliverance.
Psa 27:10 When my father and my mother have forsaken me, Then יהוה does take me in.
Psa 27:11 Teach me Your way, O יהוה, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
Psa 27:12 Do not give me over To the desire of my adversaries; For false witnesses have risen against me, And they breathe out cruelty to me.
Psa 27:13 What if I had not believed To see the goodness of יהוה In the land of the living!
Psa 27:14 Wait on יהוה, be strong, And let Him strengthen your heart! Wait, I say, on יהוה!
Psa 18:1 I love You, O יהוה, My strength.
Psa 18:2 יהוה is my rock and my stronghold and my deliverer; My Ěl is my rock, I take refuge in Him; My shield and the horn of my deliverance, my high tower.
Psa 18:3 I call upon יהוה, the One to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies.
Psa 18:4 The cords of death surrounded me, And the floods of Beliyaʽal made me afraid.
Psa 18:5 The cords of the grave were all around me; The snares of death were before me.
Psa 18:6 In my distress I called upon יהוה, And to my Elohim I cried; He heard my voice from His Hĕḵal, And my cry went before Him, into His ears.
Psa 18:7 And the earth shook and trembled; Even the foundations of the mountains were troubled And they shook, because He was wroth.
Psa 18:8 Smoke went up from His nostrils, And consuming fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it.
Psa 18:9 And He bowed the heavens and came down, And thick darkness was under His feet.
Psa 18:10 And He rode upon a keruḇ, and flew; He flew upon the wings of the wind.
Psa 18:11 He made darkness His covering; Around Him His booth, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
Psa 18:12 From the brightness before Him, His thick clouds passed, hail and coals of fire.
Psa 18:13 And יהוה thundered in the heavens, And the Most High sent forth His voice, Hail and coals of fire.
Psa 18:14 And He sent out His arrows and scattered them, And much lightning, and confused them.
Psa 18:15 And the channels of waters were seen, And the foundations of the world were uncovered At Your rebuke, O יהוה, At the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
Psa 18:16 He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters.
Psa 18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, And from those hating me, For they were stronger than I.
Psa 18:18 They confronted me in the day of my calamity, But יהוה was my support.
Psa 18:19 And He brought me out into a large place; He delivered me for He delighted in me.
Psa 18:20 יהוה rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He repaid me.
Psa 18:21 For I have guarded the ways of יהוה, And have not acted wrongly against my Elohim.
Psa 18:22 For all His right-rulings are before me, And I did not turn from His laws.
Psa 18:23 And I am perfect before Him, And I guard myself from my crookedness.
Psa 18:24 And יהוה repays me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands before His eyes.
Psa 18:25 With the kind You show Yourself kind; With the perfect one You show Yourself perfect;
Psa 18:26 With the clean You show Yourself clean; And with the crooked You show Yourself twisted.
Psa 18:27 For You save the afflicted people, But bring down those whose eyes are haughty.
Psa 18:28 For You Yourself light my lamp; יהוה my Elohim makes my darkness light.
Psa 18:29 For with You I run against a band, And with my Elohim I leap over a wall.
Psa 18:30 The Ěl – His way is perfect; The Word of יהוה is proven; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
Psa 18:31 For who is Eloah, besides יהוה? And who is a rock, except our Elohim?
Psa 18:32 It is Ěl who girds me with strength, And makes my way perfect,
Psa 18:33 Making my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places,
Psa 18:34 Teaching my hands for battle, So that my arms shall bend a bow of bronze.
Psa 18:35 And You give me the shield of Your deliverance; And Your right hand supports me, And Your lowliness makes me great.
Psa 18:36 You enlarge my step under me; And my feet shall not slip.
Psa 18:37 I pursue my enemies and overtake them; And do not turn back till they are destroyed.
Psa 18:38 I crush them, and they are unable to rise; They fall under my feet.
Psa 18:39 And You gird me with strength for battle; Cause my adversaries to bow under me.
Psa 18:40 And You have made my enemies turn their backs, As for those hating me, I cut them off.
Psa 18:41 They cry – but no one is there to save, To יהוה – but He answers them not.
Psa 18:42 And I beat them as dust before the wind; I empty them out like dirt in the streets.
Psa 18:43 You deliver me from the strivings of the people, You set me at the head of the nations; A people I have not known serve me.
Psa 18:44 As soon as they hear of me they obey me; The foreigners submit to me.
Psa 18:45 The foreigners fade away, And come frightened from their strongholds.
Psa 18:46 יהוה lives! And blessed is my Rock! And exalted is the Elohim of my deliverance,
Psa 18:47 The Ěl who avenges me, And He humbles the peoples under me;
Psa 18:48 My deliverer from my enemies. You lift me up above those who rise against me; You deliver me from a man of violence.
Psa 18:49 Therefore I give thanks to You, O יהוה, among nations, And I sing praise to Your Name,
Psa 18:50 Making great the deliverance of His sovereign, And showing kindness to His anointed, To Dawiḏ and his seed, forever.
Psa_28:7 יהוה is my strength, and my shield; My heart has trusted in Him, and I have been helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I thank Him.

As we await the Kingdom War to be over, Ladies and Gentlemen, remember who the enemy is. It is not your fellow Covenant brothers and sisters. Stop waging unnecessary wars for doing so it is as if we focus only on establishing our own kingdoms outside of the war we have all been enlisted in.
“Hazak, Hazak, Venit-hazek!” That is, “Be strong! Be strong! And may we be strengthened!”
