I'm not feeling too well this morning, in my flesh. But my spirit man is rejoicing, for the Lord told me this morning that the battle is won. We have stood in battle and in prayer for righteousness and fairness, for justice and for fair measures in this election here in Florida, and we have prevailed.

Yes, there are apparently more than 12 cases currently pending in various courts that may effect this election, but at the gate of America: Florida, the battle has been fought in the realm of the spirit and the powers of darkness have been cast down, disarmed and pushed back by the army of light!

How will this translate to the natural realm? I received prophecy from a fellow prophet yesterday. Eight days before the election, he received word from the Lord that George W. Bush would be the winner, but that his tenure would be filled with warfare and trouble. He delivered this word to Bush and to Gore. I believe those words to be genuine and from the spirit of God.

So, while God has not spoken directly to my spirit, regarding the outcome, I receive this word from this fellow prophet as being from the Lord, for God will tell no one man everything as it concerns our land and our people, but God will do nothing unless he tells his servants, the prophets.

Last night, our Friday night worship service was held. Midway through worship, the Lord said to me that "It is a night of warfare". I was led of the spirit to read the following psalm, out loud in the congregation of saints:

Psalm 149:4-9

"For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord."

As I finished reading this, I realized that I had one more instruction from the Lord, but I did not know it's timing: when I was to do it. I was to have our worship team do the song, "Bolts Of Your Gates". While singing that song, I was to extend my hand toward the north and cast down the principalities at the gate of Florida, in Jesus name.

Approximately one hour or praise and worship passed, and then the unction came into my spirit, we sang the song, and I performed my task, unnoticed by the congregation.

This morning, November 18, I awoke, and I was at peace in my spirit. There was no more burden to pray, no more warfare, all was quiet in the heavenlies. The Battle Is Over--- Hallelujah, and we, the armies of light have been victorious. I was also curious about that song, "The Bolts Of Your Gates". It is taken from the NIV at Deuternonmy 33:25, and reads as follows:

"The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze and your strength will equal your days. There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides on the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. He will drive out your enemy before you, saying Destroy him!."

I studied this scripture intently this morning. I was curious about a few things. First, why would God give this promise through Moses to Asher? Why was it given to Asher last, after the other eleven tribes had received their blessing? Where did Asher dwell? What does his name mean?

The name "Asher" means, "happy", "joyous". Asher occupied the Northern Coastal Areas of Israel, northward almost to Sidon. Asher never successfully rooted out the Phoenician cities of Tyre and Sidon, but lived along side of them.

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia writes, regarding Asher, that "the tribe seems to have taken no important part in the subsequent history (of Israel). It raised no hero, and gave no deliverer to the nation."

Why would God bless Asher last of all, and bless him with such prophetic utterances of violent warfare and victory in battle, when Asher never fulfilled these prophecies and never produced a hero? Moses was a prophet of God: surely his words must be fulfilled.

I know that God does wonderful things for his people. He loves us, one by one, and he loves to praise his people, when they obediently do what is asked of them.

What I relate to you now is something wonderful that God did for me this morning.

You see, back in 1992, when God called me as a prophet to the nations, I was led of the spirit to use the name "GAMMADIM", in my prophetic writings. I never knew why. Personally, I thought it was somewhat peculiar, since no one ever seems to know what a GAMMADIM is.

A Gammadim was a watchman, or a valourous warrior, stationed in the towers of Tyre. It is thought that they came from Gammad, hence their name, Gammadims. The sole biblical reference is found in Ezekiel 27:11. For eight years, I never really understood why God had spiritually linked my ministry with Tyre. Tyre was not a city of God, UNTIL Christianity was brought there, and then many churches were established there.

This morning, I discovered that Asher had been given the assignment of the taking of Tyre for the people of God. Only those with the spirit of Asher upon them could take it, thereby fulfilling the prophetic words given through Moses. Those Christians who carried the gospel to Tyre had that spirit of Asher. They were the first to fulfill Moses' words.

Asher had simply not obeyed God, but Asher was called by God to fulfill that task. Today, as a GAMMADIM, I spiritually occupy a watchman's tower in Tyre, on the north of spiritual Israel. Since attacks come from the North, we do our battle and watch most closely toward that direction.

Therefore, the fulfillment of Moses' prophecies concerning Asher, given last, is being seen today, in these last of the last days. It is fulfilled in my ministry, and also in other ministries who are watchmen in these last days, in the watchtowers of the north of the Kingdom, watching and praying, repelling spiritual enemies and fighting against enemies that come from the North. In a sense, we are all in the Towers Of Tyre now, we watchmen. In a sense, we watchmen, intercessors and prophets are all of Asher, in spirit.

We are not like Dan, who occupied the far north, out of his place, and was destroyed and eliminated from among the tribes of Israel. No, we occupy the north because it is our rightful place, given to us by God, and we carry God's anointing to watch, to pray, and to fight. We take our stand upon the promise the Lord gave us through Moses:

"He will drive out your enemies before you, saying Destroy them."
