Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.
The Lord has been really equipping the community in spiritual warfare. With all that we encountered [at] the beginning of this year, He told us to get serious about warfare especially since we began our intercessory prayer meetings. Then a few weeks ago Mother Clare asked us all to draw ourselves in our armor — that the Lord put it on her heart that we needed to visualize ourselves in our armor so that it becomes real to us.
So we were all given the task to draw out our armor. You guys do not want to see my drawing. Thanks to the Lord’s anointing on Therese she helped me to bring my armor to life to share with you guys so that you too are inspired to picture yourselves in your armor and take your weapons seriously.
It wasn’t until Mother Clare said that when I began to desire to see what I looked like with my armor on. Before then it wasn’t of importance to me but after she made that announcement during our Rosary prayer I began to see myself and I was amazed at what weapons I was given. After prayer, we all started to share what we looked like in our armor and all of us looked so different. I looked like a Ninja or Samurai with my weapons, it was quite interesting. And this is not just for me but for all Heartdwellers — the Lord is expanding our artillery. So I want to share this with you guys so you can also begin to picture yourself in your armor and begin to use the new weapons the Lord has given us.
The Lord has put it in my mind that when I put my armor on not only to do it with Him but to do it with my Guardian Angel, Zeal. Often times I see Jesus handing him the armor and he suits me up. It is as though we are suiting up for battle together. We forget that our Angels fight not only for us but with us.
So I simply ask Zeal, “Can you put on armor and pray the bind prayer with me?”
Then I receive a Heroic chain mail of humility which extra protection over my heart and my head. Then I receive my helmet of salvation and add filters of virtues that I most need — courage perseverance, joyful thanksgiving, gratitude, praise, and I ask the Lord to superimpose his mind, so I have the mind of Christ. Then I cover my ears with the earflaps of truth. I always get attacked in my mind, constantly, so I now have asked Jesus to place upon me [an] extra metal plate of faith over my helmet because I am hit with doubt and unbelief continuously.
I then put on my lens of Mercy. These are cool because they change with color which represents a different perspective. All I have to do is tap the lens and it changes. Green is for when I ask the Lord to see inside the hiddenness of a soul; black is when he lets me see in the spirit for warfare — it allows me to see the demons actually for battle. Where there is infrared the demons show up like silver against the black lens. Then there is the rose color that allows me to see the injuries and wounds of a soul and a clear lens allows me to see clearly through the eyes of Mercy.
Then I put a guard of love over my mouth which I need to reconstruct and tighten because I slip too many times saying the wrong thing. This guard covers my entire mouth and has holes in it so I can breathe and talk, and I line it with filters of discretion and prudence
Then I put on my breastplate which is metal with the two sacred hearts on the front. My breastplate covers my front and back that is very important that your front and your back [are] covered in battle, so you are not hit with arrows from the back. I line my breastplate with all the virtues I need and then ask the Lord for extra magnetic metal protection over it that becomes a force field that repels the fiery darts of the enemy. I have seen arrows shot at me and stop right when it’s about to hit my chest as if a force field was pushing it back. The fiery arrow wiggles a bit trying to land but can’t and eventually bends and falls to the ground. The best protection against the enemy is just simply not to sin when we sin it opens up kinks in our armor. The Lord is helping me with that.
I put on my truth and discernment belt. It’s pretty wide almost as big as a waistband and goes under my breastplate. It has filters of truth, watchfulness, prayer, and perseverance and now have added obedience.
Then I put on my Chasity belt which has really helped. I told a soul who was struggling with sexual dreams and temptations to put on this piece of armor every morning and every night before they sleep, and the sexual attacks stopped! I find it when I forget to put this piece on especially when I go to bed I get attacked. So you line your Chasity belt with filters of purity and contentment and don’t forget to put it on every morning and every night.
This is the newest piece to my armor suggested to me by Mother Clare, again another soul began putting this on and felt a major difference. This is the big girl britches and the big boy britches. I found myself venting and crying to her [about] all the responsibilities and feelings of overwhelm and my inability to keep up with the Lord’s demands. Usually, she is very understanding — compassionate, and a Mama. But she looked at me this day and said, “You need to put your big girl breeches on. Things will only get harder from here and you need to demand from the Lord His anointing. Say, “Lord I cannot do this if you don’t anoint me. So I demand that You anoint me to do all the responsibilities, and tasks with great diligence and excellence”. I looked at her, stunned, wanting to be consoled in my self-pity but realizing that was the Holy Spirit speaking through her as He always does, and I began to ask him that very day for these big girl breeches, and it worked! I no longer cried in self-pity or so easily given into anxiety and discouragement over my responsibilities. I sucked it up and demanded the Lord anoint me and he gave it to me and has sustained me since with these birches. I didn’t know what they looked like but when I saw myself they were like balloon pants that went over my pants and met with my breastplate.
Then I put on my shoes of peace. And again, another suggestion from Mother Clare, I asked the Lord to wrap my shoes of peace in the strips of the Beatitudes, taken from Matthew. So my shoes of peace have Scriptures engraved all over them and go up to my calf muscles.
Then the cool part, the weapons. The Lord has told us that as Heartdwellers we have been given swords. So we have the truth and discernment sword — this sword for me looks like glass — it’s crystal clear and can even be used like a magnifying glass. When I place the sword on anything the truth is magnified, and it has a gold engraved handle it goes in my quiver behind my back. Then there is the routing sword used to rout the demons. I have heard other Heartdwellers share what their swords look like, but I had never seen my sword. When the Lord showed me my armor this sword looked so cool. It’s black granite or black metal and it is circular all the way down with sharp ridges, like a huge drill screw. It moves like a drill when I use it to rout demons. It starts moving in a circle and has the ability to suck the demons in, into this circular motion, into the sword completely destroying them, and routing them in the process. This also goes behind my back in the quiver. Another weapon formed from our swords is a bow. Some actually have bows. Zeal has shown me that when I put my Sword of the Spirit, and Truth and Discernment swords handle to handle they meld together and become a bow. The swords bend and a string comes out of the tip of my Sword in the Spirit to connect with the tip of my Truth and Discernment sword. I don’t have arrows because the Lord has shown me [that] one of my weapons is my voice. Every time I sing, every note becomes an arrow formed and is shot into the enemy’s camp. So Zeal takes my swords and forms a bow, He raises it above my head and tells me to sing. So as I begin to sing it’s like the bow is being pulled back invisibly then it’s released with a powerful force and golden arrows shoot forth from every note I sing. It’s amazing!
Then we have the newest weapon given to Mother Elisabeth, our Hammer. It’s like the Hammer of Thor, it’s really cool. It is only tailored to us individually, we cannot use each other’s hammer. We can loose the hammer and it does what we desire in our hearts. It is used for breaking strongholds and tearing down walls. I can see as I pray once released it goes about different regions, nations, and situations breaking down literally a wall that the devils have set up, and then it boomerangs once the assignment is completed and comes back to me. It can also turn into an ax if needed to cut down demonic roots.
Then we have the Sword in the Spirit, which I keep on my side in a sword sheath. This is funny because I know myself — and the Sword in the Spirit is the sharpest of the three swords. The tip is deadly — quite literally because it has been dipped and encased with the blood of Jesus. When the tip alone touches a demon it kills them immediately. With that said, being so sharp, I can be clumsy — as I put this sword on my side, and it being so long (as long as my legs) I thought I could trip and hurt myself. The Holy Spirit then immediately shortened my Sword in the Spirit to look like a dagger at my side. When I need to use it, I press a button on my golden handle and the blade is extended to its proper length. I thought, thank you, Holy Spirit, as I felt He retorted, “You’re welcome, we both didn’t want you to hurt yourself.” [Laugh!]
Then my Shield of Faith is a clear invisible force field that is very effective. I am handed what looks like a baton at first but when I shake the baton down the force field opens up and covers me completely. I can change how it covers me — sometimes just in the front like a normal shield would be for battle or I can make it into a globe where it looks like I am in a bubble and the enemy’s arrows cannot penetrate. I then ask my Shield of Faith to be lined with filters of courage, perseverance, endurance, and favor as is mentioned in Psalm 5.
I also have been given a Lasso, which all of us have been given as Heartdwellers — that is to bind and loose. I give my lasso to My Guardian Angel though, and he binds and looses at my word. This rope is incased with the blood of Jesus and ignited with holy fire. It’s fiery orange with fire coming out of it and is about 6 feet long. When I pray for something to be bound the lasso goes forth and binds the demons and they are paralyzed and held captive, then Zeal sends them to the abyss. When I loose it, it forms words that my Guardian Angel Zeal uses to release in the atmosphere like peace, brotherly love, etc.
Then there is the Bazooka, another new weapon for Heartdwellers to send bombs into the enemy’s camp or to even release bombs on people. The Holy Spirit gave Mother Clare the inspiration to release love bombs on our enemies. In the spirit, these are shaped like hearts and when released on a certain person they immediately are enveloped with the Love of God. There is a variety of different types of bombs all in different colors and used for different purposes that you have the authority to release.
There is the Mercy bomb that releases mercy on any situation, the Blood of Jesus bombs that look black but [are] filled with the dark blood of Jesus. It’s used to target demons, portals, altars, and for protection over properties and people. The peace bomb is white and glows and when it hits its intended target that person is overcome with profound peace. It splashes on them like water — [the] same with the grace bomb, that is baby blue. You also have the bombs that release nets, to trap demons or contain situations. That is what the bazooka is for you can send out hundreds of bombs in seconds with this weapon
Last are our cloaks which are the last covering of our armor but one of the most important. Without our cloaks to protect us in virtue we will fall in pride and be a red target for the enemy. Each cloak I put on is a virtue. I just don’t ask for virtue but heroic virtues of faith, hope, love, discernment, supplication, prayer, compassion, meekness, self-control, — all the fruits of the spirit. Then [I] ask for a cloak of heroic praise, thanksgiving, perseverance, and seal it all with a cloak of heroic humility. All the cloaks are very colorful and at first, it looks like I have Joseph’s coat of many colors but once I put on my cloak of heroic humility it seals all the cloaks together making them one and turning them brown — it’s quite amazing.
So this is how I look in my armor and these are the weapons of warfare Jesus has given to all Heartdwellers. Each of us will look different and should customize our armor and weapons according to what we need and what we struggle with. I would love to hear what your armor looks like or how you put on your armor comment below. The next message I will be taking you through is how to put on the full armor. It’s a video you can replay when you are not sure what to put on or how to customize your armor to better equip you for the battles you face.
God bless you, family.
