The Builder ,The Bulldozer and The Battalion Day 5




What does it mean to be a Builder in prayer, a Bulldozer in Prayer, or a member of a Warrior Battalion in Prayer. It is important to know what He has equipped you with so that you can strategically take your part in this Last Great Campaign.


Bulldozer:


You have gifts that see and speak. You see the abashments the enemy has set up, or may set up in the path of Gods People. You often feel led to bind those things and command them to get out of the way. You have a strong sense in your heart that your words are clearing the way for The Battalion and The Builders.

You are key to the safety and success of the Campaign. The Holy Spirit partners with you so that the mission on The Ground can move forward.



The Battalion:


You are the Praying Army of God. In Corporate Prayer you pray mysteries that you may or may not know what you are praying, but, God is partnering with you mightily to make all things work together for good for those who are called according to His Purpose!!

You do battle in The Spirit! Tearing down mighty strongholds, moving and affecting the atmosphere, in ways only The Lord understands. With all the different spiritual authorities in the room, you carry a Corporate Authority, under Christ, that literally changes The World and The Course of Human Events....


The Builder:


You have the great pleasure of seeing what God is building and wanting to accomplish. You see what He is planning in The Spirit. The Lord will give you insight into His Plans that all may not see. And in The Spirit, partnering with His Spirit your prayers begins to build the "building" in The Spirit so it can manifest on the ground. You, at times, will be the Bulldozer and The Warrior. You carry both a tool and a sword.

You rely heavily on the rest of The Body to be in their place doing their part, but you can’t focus on that. You can't be swayed by what you see, you have to focus only on what He is showing you, so that you can confess boldly, pray boldly and build confidently what The Lord wants you to build.



Luke 6:48
New Living Translation (NLT)

It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.



Proverbs 24:27
New Living Translation (NLT)

Do your planning and prepare your fields
before building your house.





Nehemiah 1:4-10
New Living Translation (NLT)


When I heard this, I sat down and wept. In fact, for days I mourned, fasted, and prayed to the God of heaven.  Then I said,


“O Lord, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailing love with those who love him and obey his commands, listen to my prayer! Look down and see me praying night and day for your people Israel. I confess that we have sinned against you. Yes, even my own family and I have sinned! We have sinned terribly by not obeying the commands, decrees, and regulations that you gave us through your servant Moses.

 “Please remember what you told your servant Moses: ‘If you are unfaithful to me, I will scatter you among the nations. But if you return to me and obey my commands and live by them, then even if you are exiled to the ends of the earth, I will bring you back to the place I have chosen for my name to be honored.’

“The people you rescued by your great power and strong hand are your servants.





Nehemiah 2:7-12
New Living Translation (NLT)


I also said to the king, “If it please the king, let me have letters addressed to the governors of the province west of the Euphrates River, instructing them to let me travel safely through their territories on my way to Judah. And please give me a letter addressed to Asaph, the manager of the king’s forest, instructing him to give me timber. I will need it to make beams for the gates of the Temple fortress, for the city walls, and for a house for myself.” And the king granted these requests, because the gracious hand of God was on me.

When I came to the governors of the province west of the Euphrates River, I delivered the king’s letters to them. The king, I should add, had sent along army officers and horsemen to protect me.

But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard of my arrival, they were very displeased that someone had come to help the people of Israel.


So I arrived in Jerusalem. Three days later, I slipped out during the night, taking only a few others with me. I had not told anyone about the plans God had put in my heart for Jerusalem.




Nehemiah 4
New Living Translation (NLT)


Enemies Oppose the Rebuilding

Sanballat was very angry when he learned that we were rebuilding the wall. He flew into a rage and mocked the Jews, saying in front of his friends and the Samarian army officers, “What does this bunch of poor, feeble Jews think they’re doing? Do they think they can build the wall in a single day by just offering a few sacrifices? Do they actually think they can make something of stones from a rubbish heap—and charred ones at that?”

Tobiah the Ammonite, who was standing beside him, remarked, “That stone wall would collapse if even a fox walked along the top of it!”

Then I prayed, “Hear us, our God, for we are being mocked. May their scoffing fall back on their own heads, and may they themselves become captives in a foreign land! Do not ignore their guilt. Do not blot out their sins, for they have provoked you to anger here in front of the builders.”

At last the wall was completed to half its height around the entire city, for the people had worked with enthusiasm.

But when Sanballat and Tobiah and the Arabs, Ammonites, and Ashdodites heard that the work was going ahead and that the gaps in the wall of Jerusalem were being repaired, they were furious. They all made plans to come and fight against Jerusalem and throw us into confusionBut we prayed to our God and guarded the city day and night to protect ourselves.

 Then the people of Judah began to complain, “The workers are getting tired, and there is so much rubble to be moved. We will never be able to build the wall by ourselves.”

Meanwhile, our enemies were saying, “Before they know what’s happening, we will swoop down on them and kill them and end their work.”

The Jews who lived near the enemy came and told us again and again, “They will come from all directions and attack us!” So I placed armed guards behind the lowest parts of the wall in the exposed areas. I stationed the people to stand guard by families, armed with swords, spears, and bows.

Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes!”

 When our enemies heard that we knew of their plans and that God had frustrated them, we all returned to our work on the wall. But from then on, only half my men worked while the other half stood guard with spears, shields, bows, and coats of mail. The leaders stationed themselves behind the people of Judah who were building the wall. The laborers carried on their work with one hand supporting their load and one hand holding a weapon. All the builders had a sword belted to their side. The trumpeter stayed with me to sound the alarm.

Then I explained to the nobles and officials and all the people, “The work is very spread out, and we are widely separated from each other along the wall. When you hear the blast of the trumpet, rush to wherever it is sounding. Then our God will fight for us!”

We worked early and late, from sunrise to sunset. And half the men were always on guard. I also told everyone living outside the walls to stay in Jerusalem. That way they and their servants could help with guard duty at night and work during the day. During this time, none of us—not I, nor my relatives, nor my servants, nor the guards who were with meever took off our clothes. We carried our weapons with us at all times, even when we went for water.

Stay Clothed With the Armor of God




Isaiah 54
New Living Translation (NLT)

"O storm-battered city,
troubled and desolate!

I will rebuild you with precious jewels
and make your foundations from lapis lazuli.

I will make your towers of sparkling rubies,
your gates of shining gems,
and your walls of precious stones.

I will teach all your children,
and they will enjoy great peace.

You will be secure under a government that is just and fair.
Your enemies will stay far away.

You will live in peace,
and terror will not come near.

If any nation comes to fight you,
it is not because I sent them.

Whoever attacks you will go down in defeat.

“I have created the blacksmith
who fans the coals beneath the forge
and makes the weapons of destruction.

And I have created the armies that destroy.

But in that coming day
no weapon turned against you will succeed.

You will silence every voice
raised up to accuse you.

These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord;
their vindication will come from me.

I, the Lord, have spoken!




Hebrews 3:4
New Living Translation (NLT)

For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.
