Some may operate more powerfully in deliverance ministry than in strategic level warfare. Others may have a specific anointing to deal with the enemy on the occult level. So in this study, we are looking at some specific anointings in the area of spiritual warfare. This is because as individuals we need to find and start functioning in our areas of anointing in the army of God, and because corporately the church needs to begin to acknowledge and release anointed people into their spheres of authority. Two people we are going to look at in this study are Deborah and Gideon, who were both anointed to lead Israel in war at different times of history, but who each were specifically anointed to release the breakthrough needed for the hour.
Arise O Warrior Bride! ~ by Dana Jarvis
So the Lord sold them into the hand of Jaban king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor. The commander of his army was Sisera, who dwelt in Harosheth Hagoyim. And the children of Israel cried out to the Lord, for Jabin had nine hundred chariots of iron, and for twenty years he had harshly oppressed the children of Israel. Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, was judging Israel at that time.
And she would sit under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in the mountains of Ephraim. And the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. Deborah was one of only three people in the Old Testament who held the positions of prophet, judge and military leader along with Moses and Samuel.
Verse 5 tells us she sat between Ramah and Bethel. I believe this to be symbolic of high level spiritual warfare and intercession. It is not my purpose here to go into the rest of the story of the battle, but the end result is that the Israelites are victorious and defeat the enemy army and Sisera is killed. Deborah, along with her general, Barak, then sings a prophetic song inspired by the Holy Spirit.
The church is the Bride, the new man, and the warrior
You can read the whole song in Judges 5. To continue our study, we are going to take a look at some of the passages in the Song of Deborah. Firstly, Judges In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were deserted, and the travellers walked along the byways.
Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel. Until I, Deborah, arose, arose a mother in Israel. They chose new gods; there was war in the gates; not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel. This is a description of the state of the nation of Israel just prior to the war with Canaan. Village life had ceased. In those days many people lived in small villages outside the walls of the cities. This is telling us that the people were afraid to venture outside the fortified walls of their cities and towns.
The villages had disappeared. Because of marauding raids from the enemy the people had fled inside the walls. Sadly, some churches have become like fortified cities, where the whole focus has become defensive, to keep the enemy out, and to keep the believers safe.

The problem is that the rest of the world is still out there with him. They had chosen to follow other gods and God had allowed war to come to them see Judges , so the Lord sold them into the hands of Jabin, King of Canaan. The people were not prepared for war and did not know how to use their weapons not a shield or spear was seen.
Deborah goes on in her song to acknowledge different tribes who came to fight. This also is an aspect of the anointing on the Deborahs God is raising up — the ability to recognise and discern specific giftings in the Body of Christ and to encourage, and nurture them.

When I read your post tears came to my eyes. I had to sit here a moment and figure out why it touched me so. Then I realized it is the battle we all face. Some time back I was working on ways to teach spiritual warfare to small children- love beats hate, freely giving beats stinginess, …. Then I started looking at my Bible in more practical ways.
God has it all there. And in that time praise won the battle. Our Heavenly Father God is great and merciful. Rejoice in the Lord always! I sometimes forget to laid it iat the foot of Jesus and give Him praise for everything. Your Name:. Email Address:.

I asked the Lord to reveal what He wanted me to know. When the revealed word is rejected, it becomes a curse.
Concerning the dream with the provocatively dressed women, I think I am not saying that I have the anointed interpretation that when we reveal a word, vision, dream, etc. I personally have not arrived yet and feel this dream may have been given as a warning to me. December 18, AM.
