“The Lord Says, ‘I Am Not Finished with You Yet!'”

We Have His Authority to Overcome and Overthrow
As soon as I woke up and recorded the dream, I received the interpretation. I knew that this woman represented the spirit of Jezebel and the dream had a lot of spiritual significance. In this dream, she didn’t kill the minister but she tried to push him off his platform.
The Lord is showing me that the enemy has been trying to push many of you out of your position of authority. He is showing me an airplane that hasn’t left the ground. Airplanes are meant to fly, not roll on a runway. You have a calling on your life but can’t seem to get off the ground. The Holy Spirit wants to take you into new levels and new heights of what you have been called to do.
“…casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
That afternoon when I thought about this dream, I remembered something that I experienced a couple of years ago when I was very sick. I heard (not literally) a voice from the kingdom of darkness saying, “I am not finished with you yet.”
I remember thinking about this for a few seconds but then the presence of God flooded my body and the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a still small voice, saying, “I am not finished with you yet.” He confirmed this word with the Scripture Jeremiah 29:11. I knew this was Jesus.
His voice was gentle but strong. It was not demanding or forceful but filled with love and compassion.
“…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…” (Philippians 1:6)
I Am Not Finished With You Yet
The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you are listening to the voice of the enemy and it is bringing fear and torment into your life.
There are numerous voices in the world that vie for your attention throughout the day. They come in mere thoughts and images in your mind. They come with enticement and temptations. Jesus will never lead you in the wrong direction. The Holy Spirit is your comforter. Jesus has plans for you. He is not finished with you yet.
The Lord says, “Don’t submit to the voices that bring defeat and confusion, but listen for the voice of truth. I have given you ears to hear and I speak with clarity. My voice will bring peace and it will carry My presence. It will always glorify Jesus for who He is and what He has done for you. It will release healing and it will bring favor. Don’t allow your emotions to become entangled with thoughts of failure and defeat but allow Me to release My presence into every situation.
“You were once in the kingdom of darkness but now you are the light of the world. The enemy had trained you to fight well when you were in his camp, but now is the time to take those same spiritual weapons of warfare and use them against him. I have given you authority over powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in heavenly places. I have put My Word in your mouth and have given you dominion to decree and declare what is rightfully yours. Your words have authority to call things into existence and transform atmospheres. The powers of darkness will have to obey and submit as you speak My Word.
“Do not submit to the lies of the enemy about your future. I am your healer, I am your provider, I am your deliverer, I am the God of your destiny and I am with you in the fire of affliction. Rejoice at all times and know that all that I have promised to you will come to pass. When the voices of darkness try to rise up against you in fear, intimidation and accusation, know that your victory is assured. I will watch over My Word to perform it and I will complete the work that I have began in you,” says the Lord.
“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” (1 Thessalonians 5:24)
