Hierarchies and Gender Wars

A Power March
If you're doing a Jericho March properly you can expect a violent backlash from the Enemy...which is a good sign if you're actually prepared spiritually and aren't simply trying to provoke him. It's then you come to discover whether you're wearing your spiritual armour on correctly, if at all. After all, what's the mitzvah (command) given before putting it on?
Going For Our Homes
"Be strong in Yahweh and in His mighty power" (Eph.6:10, NIV).
This year, as at least one of the brethren has already discovered, you're going to need to be. When you hit the enemy hard, he reacts with ferocity. And he's going, first of all, for our homes. The night before the first day of the March this happened to mine. I was shown it in vision and I went in with 'guns blazing' to ensure it was driven out. Now the target is extended family and brethren in the covenant. So keep your family and fellow qodeshim (saints, set-apart ones) mightily in prayer this time by taking the battle to the Enemy. Give no quarter.
Why Human Proxies?
The first thing you have to realise is that Yah'shua (Jesus) has given us toqef (authority) - and therefore empowerment - to wage spiritual warfare. Last night my wife and I were in prayer doing battle for a sister in the Besorah (Gospel) who has been hit hard. After we had finished I got to thinking of the 'bigger picture' and why it is that Yahweh has set up His system in the world in this way. This is one of those big 'struggle areas' I mentioned to you the other day - why does He uses human proxies more than directly intervening Himself? Though the latter most definitely happens it is invariably in conjunction with our involvement. Why?
The Responsibility to Remove Idols
On the first and personal level, we are required to battle because we have created idols in our hearts and it is our responsibility to remove them. His part is in the empowering according to our emunah (faith) and the sincerity of our repentance and subsequent obedience.
Hierarchical Structures Embedded in Creation
On the second and familial level, Yahweh has created a patriarch-ruled and -maintained familial structure, a reason why gender and anti-husband/father headship is under such massive attack in our time. Humans are organised like a giant tree with many branches - branches of families, clans, tribes and nations. As I was praying last night Yahweh showed my heart that this set-up existed long before we were incarnated as physical beings. Physical attempts, especially in early communism, to abolish hierarchial structures, have been an abysmal failure. The communist Chinese initially permitted ordinary ratings to question and debate the orders of their commanding officers and the result was utter chaos. No army in the world operates without a hierarchy. The heavenlies are organised hierarchically also which I shall hopefully be talking about at another time. What I saw, very clearly, last night is that I was given authorities and powers, conditional upon my faithfulness (emunah/faith and obedience), long before I was born. The structure is in-built and that's why I was so mightily empowered on the night before the March began this year.
It's everywhere in nature too. Sin, and the original curse, has distorted these structures somewhat, but it is clearly there. That is one reason transgender operations are a complete failure and why the suicide rate in the 'tranny' community is so high. There are some things that are set and immutable and to try to interfere with them is to bring disaster and misery to human lives. And the solution to abuses of divinely instituted hierachical structures is not revolution but repentance. The solution to bad or abusive patriarchy is neither matriarchy nor co-headship - the solution is repentance of the patriarchs. The reversal and confusion of genders and gender rôles has had a huge impact on the Christian/Messianic community when it comes to spiritual warfare. Feminised men, who ought to be protectors, are totally ineffective in spiritual warfare, and masculinsed women can bring chaos upon themselves and their families when they attempt to assume rôles they were not called to and are not empowered for. The Enemy, however, more that willingly sends counterfeits of empowerment. Believers are, for the most part, spiritual neutered because of the way they have been raised in false gender patterning.
The counterfeit can only be maintained by the brute force of corrupt civil government. When that collapses, and it's every every family for itself, the natural rôles soon make a come-back. And those who continue to resist nature inevitably get overwhelmed at some point. The law of the jungle has no respect for political correctness. If you're not sure what gender you are, look between your legs. Anything that disagrees with that - thoughts or feelings - are what is out of alignment with emet (truth). No surgical operation can change reality but it can certainly destroy hopes of a normal life if and when healing is sought and accepted. 'Once operated, always operated', there's no going back, so if you're struggling with gender identity, the solution is not the scalpel but the heart...and that Yah'shua (jesus) absolutely can fix so that mind and heart are in agreement with the divinely appointed apparatus betwixt the legs.
Know Who You Are
You have to know who you are before you engage in spiritual warfare. You need to know your gender rôle and your position in the heavenly hierachy. Most importantly of all, you need to know you you are in Messiah because that is your true identity. Being in Messiah is also to acknowledge your true gender and place in Yahweh Tsevaoth's Army. Declare to yourself the emet (truth) and you are well on your way to healing.
Today is the fourth day of this year's march and there is a lot going on. Pray for one another and pray hard. May Yahweh bless you and keep you on the Derech (Way). Amen.
