As we worshipped the Lord in song, I saw an angel and a demon. They were beating very big drums, like conga drums. As the angel and the demon were beating their drums, smoke oozed out from the sides of the skin on top of the drums. For the demon, very black smoke was coming out, and for the angel, white smoke like incense was coming out. But then, the demon’s smoke was coming out very quickly and consistently, while that of the angel wasn’t as consistent.
When the smoke came out, it would begin to condense and form beings. The black smoke formed demonic beings while the white smoke formed angelic beings that were supposed to fill the land. That was the aim of both sides – to fill the land.
The angel’s smoke was not coming out consistently, and this had to do with the insufficient worship and praise of God, versus the overabundant worship and praise of the devil. Worshipping and praising the devil was very constant—and it was all over the land! It came majorly through complaining, murmuring, anger, and all those kinds of things. It was very constant; that was why more demons were coming out of the drum, and the demonic being had more strength to keep hitting the drum consistently. But for the angelic being, the people worshipping and praising God were not many, and they were inconsistent. Theirs was just happening in intermittent and inconsistent puffs, and they were only a few pockets of people around the land, compared to the number of people that were praising the devil.
Worshipping God—as opposed to the Devil worship—was to come from praising God from a pure heart, ensuring that the fruit of our lips and works of our hands were in line with God’s wisdom as written in His Word. Living and speaking from a place of GRATITUDE cannot be safely neglected.
I heard, “Pray for more soldiers to be sent in.” I understood that these soldiers were to be people who would go out of their way to actively worship God in the right way and refuse to worship the devil like the crowd. Worshipping God is warfare, and many more soldiers trained to fight this way, are needed.
Then, the next thing I saw was that we were before the throneroom of God, and there was this white smoke everywhere as we were worshipping. I saw that a demon had come with a petition against the church of God in Nigeria, and it seemed it was a petition that had been struck out before. It had been struck out on the condition that the church would repent, but apparently the condition was not met, so the demon came again with that petition and presented it once more before the throne. Meanwhile, we were just there dancing in the white smoke that was before the throne.
On the paper the demon was holding, I saw that there was a very big letter “X” in scarlet red on the lower half. But then, because we kept worshipping while this demon was trying to make his petition, God was more focused on what we were doing than on what the demon was doing.
Regarding the timing, it appeared the demon was supposed to win the case according to the rules of the Court. It was like there were rules, and the rule was that because of what had happened, the demon had many points on his side that assured him of winning the case. It actually wasn’t even a case. Rather, it was more like it was his right, and that whatever the devil’s side requested for should be granted to them (because of the conditions that the church had not kept). However, as we kept praising, it was like the praise granted us access or permission to a hearing. I heard the One on the throne say, “This session has been adjourned!” Our worship and praise granted us permission for the case to be heard and a privilege to be able to counter-petition, because it was like the case was no longer supposed to be heard. It was supposed to be that the demon would simply come with the petition and say, “They did not repent; allow us do what we had intended to do,”—and he’d be granted permission freely; but our worship and praise granted us a hearing, more like an ‘undeserved’ opportunity to fight and win.
