TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – September 25, 2023

Luke 9:25 – For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? 

It’s easy to fight for the wrong things in life. Power, position, prestige, money–while these things can all be used for the Kingdom, they should not be the goal. When you follow Jesus as your Good Shepherd, you may go through some dark and scary valleys, but He will bring you through to the Father’s table. He will let your cup run over with goodness and mercy! Let Him bring the increase and elevation to your life so it will be a treasure that does not fade. 

Declaration: I will not chase worldly wealth and wisdom. I will chase the Lord and let Him decide my upgrade. 


Most of us have heard of the 16 God names in the Old Testament, including Jehovah Jireh, the Lord is our Provider; or Jehovah Rapha, the Lord is our Healer. However, few have heard of Jehovah Nissi.

Jehovah Nissi, means the Lord is our Banner and the banner it’s referring to is the flag on a battlefield. If you want to win the battle for upgrade and momentum, you need to learn to call on Jehovah Nissi. 

Jehovah Nissi is the game changing side of the Lord. He is the momentum changer.

The Lord is our Banner speaks of a battlefield where suddenly, the momentum swings in your favor because the King’s banner has entered the fray. It means the King Himself is fighting the fight!

Everything changes when you can see Jesus on your battlefield. It is from that momentum that you pick up your sword, get off the ground and scream in the face of the enemy again – think Braveheart!

When it comes down to it, the forceful part of moving forward in the Kingdom is to be taken head-on – never from your flanks or behind, so there’s no need to cover your butt because your armor is for living life forward. Read Ephesians chapter six and you’ll see the “full armor of God” covers everything but your backside. 

Why? Because moving forward, upgrade, progression, momentum – they are not for people who turn their backs to see what’s behind them. You and I are not meant to be Lott’s wife, looking back in longing of what she was leaving behind. We are to be the warrior Bride of Christ – positioned to move forward and win the battle under the banner of the King!
