God Is Calling for the SCOUTS

Last night during prayer, the Father spoke a Word of encouragement to me for His people, particularly those who have been frustrated as watchmen in the Body of Christ. God said He is calling forth the scouts, as He did in the day of Moses.

He said there are many who are becoming frustrated by sitting on the wall, and He is calling some to become mobile. The Church, as a Body, is going to experience a new level of momentum in the Spirit. God said that all He has promised will come to pass, but He is calling forth the scouts to move first into the new season, that they will be prepared to lead and direct those to follow.

God spoke so clearly and said those who are called out must be encouraged. Sometimes, the scout feels lonely, because everyone cannot follow into the new land. Some have been challenged by the Church – the ministries and the gifts, as our Apostle pointed out during prayer, are literally being challenged and doubted by some. God said this is not the time to be phased by those who doubt. He is going to move in such a way that His people will be reassured. God said He is going to show Himself strong to those individuals who have begun to doubt themselves. He is opening up the heavens to those who are being attacked – not to prove to others, but to prove to the very ones who are being challenged that indeed, they do hear from the Almighty God.

Scouts, suit up! Prepare yourselves. Dwell in the secret place of the Father, and do not be afraid to move. Do not be afraid to step into new territory. Hear and obey the voice of God. In due season, you will be instructed to declare what you have observed, but for now, prepare for a season of spiritual awakening as you’ve never experienced before. Be prepared to preview what God is preparing for the Church.

It is very easy for scouts to get discouraged. Scouts are called to sneak into the enemy’s camp. They are called to enter new places and seasons before the crowd. They are trained as mobile watchmen. SCOUTS, this is the season to gird up in boldness. Launch out and tell the people what you see!

Num 13:1 AND THE Lord said to Moses,
Num 13:2 Send men to explore {and} scout out [for yourselves] the land of Canaan, which I give to the Israelites. From each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader {or} head among them.
Num 13:3 So Moses by the command of the Lord sent scouts from the Wilderness of Paran, all of them men who were heads of the Israelites.

Num 13:27 They told Moses, We came to the land to which you sent us; surely it flows with milk and honey. This is its fruit.
Num 13:28 But the people who dwell there are strong, and the cities are fortified {and} very large; moreover, there we saw the sons of Anak [of great stature and courage].
Num 13:29 Amalek dwells in the land of the South (the Negeb); the Hittite, the Jebusite, and the Amorite dwell in the hill country; and the Canaanite dwells by the sea and along by the side of the Jordan [River].
Num 13:30 Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it.

Num 14:7 And they said to all the company of Israelites, The land through which we passed as scouts is an exceedingly good land.
Num 14:8 If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Num 14:9 Only do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us. Their defense {and} the shadow [of protection] is removed from over them, but the Lord is with us. Fear them not.
