TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBEROctober 8, 2023 – 10/8/2023Mark 10:8 (TPT)And the husband and wife will be joined as one flesh, and after that they no longer exist as two, but one flesh.

Do you ever wonder why our families are facing such challenges? It appears that no matter where you go, you’ll encounter families that are struggling. The adversary has effectively undermined the divine plan and purpose that God ordained for our families. I believe it is time for us to rise boldly and reclaim the authority over our families, declaring with one voice that the strong foundations established through husband and wife can no longer be shattered. The Father constructs these “strong towers” in the land to establish dominion and authority. The Scriptures instruct us to occupy and multiply, but at every turn, we witness the enemy’s destructive attacks on people from every walk of life. Today, let us proclaim together that the adversary will not assume the territory rightfully given to us! (Ps. 115:16)

Declaration: I declare and decree that my voice will resound against the enemy! 
I take complete authority, power, dominion, and jurisdiction over all the forces of the enemy. (Luke 10:19) I submit to the Lord and resist the enemy’s hostile takeover of my family and any territory allocated to me and my generational lines! (James 4:7) In the mighty name of Jesus!
“Retreat, No More”
Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 
 There is a boldness coming to the body of Christ in this hour. The roar of the Lion continues to be heard. The fire of the Holy Spirit is surrounding His people with His light. The sound and the roll call are going out! We need to steadfastly put on the whole armor of God, preparing for and leading upto the great and final battle. If you are not declaring the whole armor of God over your families, children, and everyone around you, I encourage you now to begin to do so. This is a battle of faith and wits. God is on our side, but we must be prepared and ready to encounter the enemy and even be proactive. The Word is our sword in this battle, and it will seem real enough.

Many times I have been caught off guard when the enemy whispered to me, almost audibly, that he was going to take me out and clearly showed me how he would accomplish it.  I responded audibly, “No, you are not!” knowing my future was not in his hands.  More than once, his next statement was, “Okay, I will just take out your family.” My response was, “There are more with me than against me!” 

I am tired of the enemy making decisions for me! I will not back down. It is not my job to retreat from the coward before me. Let us rally our troops and discern the day!

For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide. We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6 TPT)
