This year in 2008, I have heard the words, humility, bow down, lay low, humble, etc so many times.  I have felt the Lord was dealing with pride, arrogance, manís promotion (instead of Godís promotion), and independence.  However when the Lord gave me the dream where the angel pointed for me to go down the stairs in order to eat at Godís restaurant, it really made me stop and think, why was I supposed to go downstairs?  In the natural I have a very hard time managing stairs due to knee and hip problems.


( Link to the above dream )




OCTOBER 31st, 2008.  I went to bed in prayer and intercession over this night where the demonic are loosed upon Godís people.  I had a vision where I saw a group of warlocks descending a steep stairway, one step at a time in unison.  They were dressed in black robes with hoods and masks and you could not see their faces.  I noted that they were about 9 feet tall and was deciding whether they were demonic spirits or people underneath the robes.  Still in the vision I then realized that these were people who were walking on stilts underneath their black robes to make themselves appear as very tall.


When I came out of the vision I felt that the Lord had revealed to me that the curse against Godís people was to make them fall and stumble.  Since that time I have had several confirmations to this.  A pastorís wife fell from the stairs and broke her elbow.  Another person accidently dropped her baby from the top of the stairs and the baby fell to the bottom.  The baby was examined and perfectly fine, but only because of intercessory prayer over those specific stairs prior to the accident.

I saw really big perches falling, and heard the psalm of David




(7) Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.  (8) Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret--it only causes harm.  (9) For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth.  (10) For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more.  (11) But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.  (12) The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth.  (13) The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming.  (14) The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct.  (15) Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken.  (16) A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked.  (17) For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the Lord upholds the righteous.  (18) The Lord knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever.  (19) They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.  (20) But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.  Into smoke they shall vanish away.  (Psalm37:7-20)


We will yet see that the "Esthers" will be requited, the Hamans hang on their own gallows, and the Mordecais come in position next to The King.

  • How do you descend and be set under, stand under, submission for this hour to take us into the next season?


  • The king is going to show up in a circumstance.  How will you submit to it? 


  • Jesus descended first so He could ascend to give gifts to mankind. 


Eph 4:7-10

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. 8 Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men."    (Now this, "He ascended" ó what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)


  • One of the concepts of the number 9 for the year 2009 is humility.  You must descend so you can ascend.  He took you into the wilderness to humble you so I can give the power to get well.


Deut 8:2-3 NKJV

And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness , to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not. 3 So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.

CONCLUSION:  There are many different kinds of strategies in warfare.  I feel the Lord is saying that when we are suffering a time when it appears we are under the foot of the enemy, we need to first bow low and submit to God, before we can resist the devil and he will flee.  In those places where we do not submit to God, we are vulnerable.  As we humble ourselves and submit to God, He will then turn the tide and cause our enemies to fall instead.


James 4:7-10 NKJV

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.


Deut 8:15-17 NKJV

...who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; 16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might humble you and that He might test you, to do you good in the end ó  17 then you say in your heart, 'My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.'




Humbled before all,

Unassuming and unpretentious, I choose to walk

Modestly and mildly.

Bowing low and begging, I

Lower myself to a Little place where I

Esteem others more worthy.


Meekly I lay down my rights and say

Yes to Godís abasement and stay

Submissive as His Simple Servant.

Embarrassment is dead.

Lowly I bow, for water always flows to the lowest places.

Flattery is not heard, only Godís very tiny voice.


Isa 57:15 NKJV

For thus says the High and Lofty One  Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble , And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.


Prov 16:19  NKJV

Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
