Do Not Fight in This Battle, Rather Position Yourselves, Stand and See His Salvation

There are times in which God wants us to fight back when the enemy is attacking us, by using our spiritual weapons of warfare. Then there are other times in which He doesn’t want us to fight, but to position ourselves, to stand and to see what He is doing to rescue us from the attack.

This is what happened with king Jehoshaphat and his people. When they heard of the enemy approaching, they were scared, and in reaction they sought the Lord. Jehoshaphat then prayed a prayer, by declaring who God is, and by declaring what He had done for them in the past. Then he approached God as judge, to state their case, and reminded God of His promises. In bowing down before God, Jehoshaphat and his people worshipped and praised God. Then in the midst of their worship and praise, God intervened, and caused the enemy to turn on themselves, so that every one was destroyed, the Israelites were blessed, and God was honored for what He did.

Positioning yourself, and standing, while facing the enemy thus entails praise and worship God amidst the attack, but also declaring what He will do to the enemy. Marelize uses Psalm 3, with its declarations of God being our shield and the lifter of our head, to God striking the enemy on the cheekbone and braking its teeth, to illustrate how God will turn things around for us. 2 Chron 20:17 2 Chron 17:10 1 Sam 17

Time to Pray for S.A. And U.S.A.

The nations of South Africa and America have similar callings. America is a world influencer while South Africa is an influencer on the continent of Africa. Praying scripture, given by the Holy Spirit. for this specific time, over these countries, is what this session is about. Marelize also shares about the Iron Anointing, using Jeremiah’s anointing as iron pillar and Micah’s anointing with the iron horn, to pray over God’s chosen leaders for this time in both of these countries. 2 Sam.18 Ps.2

Standing on the Shoulders of Those Who’ve Gone Before Us & Why We Need to Pray for America

Marelize uses the example of king Solomon, who accomplished great things because he stood on his father, David’s shoulders. The Lord has a plan for each family, giving them unique characteristics and abilities, to become part of God’s plan on earth. He often uses the father to speak words over his children regarding their future. These words are like seeds, which leads the child into the direction that God wants for that child.

Because our Enemy, the Devil knows that, he will do all to influence the father away from God’s plan, by either causing the father to become absent, or to react in ways which can cause hurt or disappointment in the child, which usually causes the child to react in a manner, which can cause him or her to move away from God’s plan. God may then use a spiritual father to fulfill that role, or He may use the grandfather, like He used the prophet Samuel as grandfather of Heman. Heman was appointed as musical leader in king David’s worship team, and also became king David’s personal prophet, and his sons David appointed to prophecy as musicians, in his worship team. Yet, Heman’s father was evil, and was not a good example to him. So Heman stood on the shoulders of his grandfather, to carry on with the fulfillment of God’s plan for that family.

America’s foundational fathers were Christians, whose dream it was to build a nation that will worship God. It is a leader and influencer nation, in whose DNA it is to influence the nations of the world. So whatever is happening in the USA, it will have an influence on the rest of the word, whether it is Godly, or Ungodly.

With the election, that happened a few days ago, votes are still being counted. IT IS TIME for Christians around the world, to pray that whatever the outcome, that the new Precedential leader, will stand on the shoulders of the foundational fathers, to carry forth the Christian principles that it was founded on, to become again the Godly influencer, to influence other nations of the world to become Godly. This will be the fulfillment of a dream in God’s heart, that all nations will stand before His throne to worship Him, when the books will be opened, according to Revelations.

Prov. 22:6 2 Chron. 5-7 1 Chron. 16 1 Chron. 25:5 2 Chron. 29

Yearning for His Presence

Marelize uses king Solomon’s initiation of friendship with God when he made the 1000 burnt offerings, and his encounter with God afterwards, as the foundation to share on the Christian’s yearning for God’s presence. This includes the critical times mentioned in the Bible, in which the we need to draw close to God to experience His presence, for us to be overcomers, especially in this time of the Covid 19 Pandemic. 2 Chron.1&2 Ps.43:8 Ps.21 Ps.42:5 Ps.63:1-3 Ps.27:3-6 Is.26:4-9 Amos 8:11-12 John 4:14

Surrendering Ownership to the Lord

God owns everything in the heaven and the earth. This includes what we own, and our income or salary. We are thus stewards over what He gives. A steward has the highest form of authority under a master, and has full responsibility of what belongs to the master. If we acknowledge God as owner of everything, and are faithful stewards, He will reward us. Marelize uses King David as example and the missionary who had his experience of surrendering his pineapple land to the Lord. She also shares about drawing up you own Quit Claim Deed to surrender all ownership to the Lord. 1 Chron. 29:11-13 Is. 40:22-24 Prov. 21:1 Acts 17:26 Matt. 25:20-21

Why on the Mountain, When You Can Pray in the Valley

Marelize shares about the spiritual significance of heights, as portrayed in the Bible – a place of God’s presence, of His dominion and His authority. She also gives testimony of her own mountain experiences. Exo.19, 27 Gen.22 Eze.17, 40-43 Jer.17:2 Ps.24

Only Move When You Hear the Sound in the Balsam Trees

This is a follow-up on the previous message about the Prophetic Voice, including the use of our voices in social media, and how our voices differ according to our callings and anointing. Marelize also shares on the importance of using our voice as His trumpet according to His guidance, like King David who asked the Lord about how his men ought to fight the enemy, and the nature of the balsam trees from where the Lord had said the sound would come to give David’s men the indication of when to attack. 1 Chr.14:8 Lev.26 Matt.12

Release of The Prophetic Voice Anointing Oil

God wants to use His sons’ and His daughters’ voices as trumpets to declare, to break open and to communicate His will, just like the silver trumpets and shofars were used for different purposes in the Bible. For the release of The Prophetic Voice Anointing Oil, Marelize shares on how the Lily of the Valley and Aloe contributes in its prophetic meaning, as ingredients of this new anointing oil. The release is accompanied by a prayer for the Holy Spirit’s anointing of lips and voices. Num.10 Ex.19 Is.49:2 Ecc.12:11 Hos.14:5 Prov.7:17 Heb.4:12 Jer.23:28-29 Ecc.5:2 Col.4:5-6 Eph.4:29

God Answering Prayer & The Harvest

Marelize shares her prayer experiences while she walked up Mount Kilimanjaro 7 years ago, and how God has been answering those prayers in the meantime. She also talks about the vision that she had on the mountain regarding the Great Harvest. This is about Christians drawing closer to God, moving into the Holy of Holies where God will share His heart for those who don’t know Him, of which the Great Harvest will be the outflow. The timing of this vision 7 years ago, co-insides with the beginning of the prayer initiative in South Africa called The Return. 2 Chr.2 Ps.42, 43 Hos.11
