Cloud Of Witnesses By: Rev. Aaron Betz
Today I was feeling somewhat vulnerable and weak. God in His Goodness made known to me a weapon of warfare that I never really considered. He led me to ask for and agree with the testimony of the Cloud of Witnesses over me. The testimony really reinforced me; it was like food for my spirit.
Consider this scripture:
Hebrews 12:1 [NKJV]
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
After I received this testimony I heard Him explain:
“You have been strengthened this day by the Cloud of Witnesses that are around about you. Everyone has their own Cloud and everyone has their own weaknesses that the clouds speak strength into. Use this weapon of warfare. Son, I am always here to sing over you, rejoice over you, and weep over you but there is a Heavenly strategy within this Cloud. Their testimony is so useful to My people. You can always call on them in the Courts, but when you are in the assembly (as in daily life) you can immediately ask for this and feel built up.”
God has often told us that we are not using all of the weapons of warfare. Consider this weapon: the Cloud of Witnesses. All you have to do is believe, ask, agree, and receive. Just as words of darkness can tear us down and vex us, these words of life are meant to strengthen and build us up.
Remember, God said that each of us have our own Cloud and our own weaknesses. This intercession from Heaven is totally on your side; speaking strength into your weakness which gives you power to overcome.
You may hear the Cloud or even see the Cloud, but beyond that is the supernatural impartation that will strengthen your being in areas in which you are currently weak. This is the hour when Heaven is becoming real to the Body of Christ. Embrace your Homeland.
