THE WALLS MUST GO DOWN

4th May 2023

Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9

Focus

“Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.” (Zechariah 4: 7)

Our Focal Scripture is divided into two parts by the use of a colon (:); and when a colon is used, it means that what is after the colon is explaining what was before the colon. In the part preceding the colon, Zechariah makes mention of the great mountain before Zerubbabel which must become a plain; in the part after the colon, he speaks of how he will bring forth the headstone. The mountain needed to become a plain so that Zerubbabel could bring forth the headstones.

Friend, I pray for you: every mountain that is opposing your advancement, I command it to become a plain. I command the mountain of affliction to go down; I command the mountain of debts to go down; I command the mountain of difficulty in your health to go down; I command the mountain of satanic roadblocks to go down; I command the mountain of spiritual wickedness against you to go down; I command the mountain of delays and stagnation to go down by fire.

Notice that Zechariah asked, “Who art thou, O great mountain”? Zechariah addressed the mountain as though it were a person. Zechariah spoke to the mountain as if it could hear. Today, speak to every mountain and command it to give way. Speak to the mountain of evil men on your pathway and command them to give way. Speak to the mountain of negativity surrounding you and command it to give way. Speak to the mountains.

There is a bringing forth that may never happen until you boldly tear down the mountains of negativity around you. There is a breaking forth that may not materialize until you set a boundary that the powers of hell must not cross around you. There is a breaking forth into your next level that may not become reality until you crush the high walls of negativity and satanic oppression that the enemy has erected.

Remember, if it is a wall, and if it standing in the way of your breaking forth and bringing forth, it must go down.

Declaration

Any mountain standing against my bringing forth, go down by fire, in Jesus’ name!
