This is the strategy that he described:
The Pawns– He said, These are on the front lines. They are the easiest to eliminate when untrained. They are the carnal, compromising Christians. They are easily offended, misled and weak. However, their weakness MUST be developed into strengths. These are the sensitive, the humble, the meek, the last and the least. Their power is in their “passion”. They can be trained to be a fortified wall (a hedge of protection around the kingdom). They are wailing women & lamenters.
3…..And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; 4And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
5And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Ezekiel 9:3-5
GOD CALLS THEM: (Wailers, Lamenters, Praisers, Worshippers, Scribes)
The Rook is the Watchman. This chess piece is shaped like a tower. Watchman watch from a tower. This piece moves horizontally and vertically on the chess board. Front to back and Side to side without limitation. Watching, Reporting, Warning, Blowing the trumpet, Announcing, and Foreseeing.
GOD CALLS THEM: (Discerners of Spirits, Ushers, Intercessors)
The Bishop is the Priest . They move diagonally without limitation. They Advise, Encourage, Direct, Instruct, Counsel, Teach and move throughout the kingdom keeping order, and enforcing the laws. (chess board)
GOD CALLS THEM: (Leaders, Ministers, Deacons, Armor Bearer, Scribes, Administrator)
The Knights are Warriors. They move in 3 steps. 2 to the front and one to the side or 2 to the side and one to the front (in either direction). The knight moves strategically. His moves are calculated and well thought out. If every avenue is not examined carefully, before making a move, the knight will be upon the enemy before they realize it.
GOD CALLS THEM: (Prayer Warriors, Teachers, Preachers, Evangelists, Prophets)
The Queen is the last line of defense against total infiltration. She has the most negotiating power. Her power is reserved to be used as a last result. In battle, her sole purpose is to protect the King. (The demonstration that Apostle Davis gave was prophetic). She can move all over the board (kingdom), and has full reign without restriction. Her life is very valuable. It is the responsiblity of the entire kingdom to protect her. Ideally, she should not have to fight.
GOD CALLS HER: (Wife)
The King. If the enemy makes it into the kingdom, the King is boxed in a corner. He can only move one step at a time in every direction except backward. His back is against the wall.
GOD CALLS HIM: (Apostle, Pastor)
The Lord said, Train the Troops. Identify their positions. As they offensively go in to possess the land, position the warriors (pawns, knights, rooks) in the field, and the ones gifted in wisdom (Bishops) in the inner courts. Teach them offensive and defensive maneuvers so that they are skilled in spiritual combat. Teach them to watch out for and protect one another. Command the troops, and test their obedience so that you will know who you can trust to do what [like Gideon’s troops]. This structure will sustain and be the foundation for the the New Church. It will be impenetrable, says the Lord.
The Lord then began to minister to me about the prayer process.
He said, the reason my people’s prayers are not answered is that they do not understand how to use the weapons of warfare that I have given them. They must prepare themselves to enter my presence. The Lord then gave me specific instructions about how to approach his throne through confession, purification, praise, worship, praying his word, intercession, petition, thanksgiving, meditation, and the result is testimony and prophetic revelation. He said, “Then nothing you ask, will I deny.”
He explained to me that even though the original process for entering the Holy of Holies has been established under the new covenant in Jesus Christ, that in the spirit it is still the same pattern/process given to the priests as described in the Old Testament (Exodus). We need to confess, be cleansed and be purified before we boldly approach the throne of God to make a petition. This way he recognizes us through the blood of Jesus Christ or we risk being unrecognizeable because we have no right to approach the throne on our own except through Jesus the Christ.
