Anointed for War: Knight Light reminds us that we are empowered from on high, called to be His light bearers and to break through the darkness.

  • Isaiah 60:1-2 (TLB) Arise, my people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. Darkness as black as night shall cover all the peoples of the earth, but the glory of the Lord will shine from you. 
  • Luke 24:49 (TPT) And I will send the fulfillment of the Father’s promise* to you. So stay here in the city until the mighty power of heaven falls upon you and wraps around you.” (*The Aramaic reads “the kingdom” or “rule.” The Father’s promise would be the coming of the Holy Spirit to live in them and empower them.)
  • John 1:4-5 (VOICE) His breath filled all things with a living, breathing light – a light that thrives in the depths of darkness, blazes through murky bottoms. It cannot and will not be quenched.
  • Psalm 18:12-14, 21, 28 (VOICE) Out from His brilliance hailstones and burning coals broke through the clouds. The Eternal thundered in the heavens; the Highest spoke; His voice rumbled [in the midst of hail and lightning]. He shot forth His arrows and scattered the wicked; He flung forth His lightning and struck them. I kept the ways of the Eternal and have not walked away from my True God in wickedness. You are the lamp who lights my way; the Eternal, my God, lights up my darkness.
  • Matthew 5:16 (VOICE) You are like that illuminating light. Let your light shine everywhere you go, that you may illumine creation, so men and women everywhere may see your good actions, may see creation at its fullest, may see your devotion to Me, and may turn and praise your Father in heaven because of it.
  • Psalm 139:12 (NKJV) Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It’s called “Knight of Light.

Psalm 18:28 (TPT) God, all at once you turned on a floodlight for me! You are the revelation-light in my darkness, and in your brightness I can see the path ahead.

Beloved, you are a reflection of Me. I bring light to the darkness, and you – under My authority and acting on My behalf – are a knight of Light, a warrior for Truth. Simply by reflecting Me and walking steadfastly in truth, you take territory. You shine, and you shine brightly. Darkness has no choice but to flee.

You are empowered from on high. Never forget your Source. I AM the only true light, and there is no substitute. A counterfeit is known by knowing so intimately what is true that a lie cannot deceive. So bring My light, let it be known in all the earth that no counterfeit or substitute would even be a temptation to those around you because the vibrancy and warmth of My light is irresistible.

Psalm 18:12-14, 21, 28 (VOICE) Out from His brilliance hailstones and burning coals broke through the clouds. The Eternal thundered in the heavens; the Highest spoke; His voice rumbled [in the midst of hail and lightning]. He shot forth His arrows and scattered the wicked; He flung forth His lightning and struck them. I kept the ways of the Eternal and have not walked away from my True God in wickedness. You are the lamp who lights my way; the Eternal, my God, lights up my darkness.

You are My light. Seek out My inheritance. Display My glory for all to see. Rejoice in Me and shine My light to the nations. Shore up the places where the enemy has sought to quench or dispel it. Replenish the generations that have been lost in the darkness. Ignite the little ones that they might shine brightly too. My light burns brightly. It will never be quenched. You operate in My authority because you are Mine, and I delight to go before you strength and power. You carry My light, so shine.

{sensing} a challenge to go into the dark places and discover His hidden treasures like Rahab, whom the spies found in Jericho (Exodus 2:1-21), even to go into places where persecution has shut down the visible or physical church and His sheep are struggling with fear, hopelessness, and despair; to go to those places and bring His light – reigniting a flame of passion for Him. This is a like the command that was given to Joshua and the Israelites when preparing to take Canaan, Joshua 1:9 (AMP) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” 

Joshua was a mighty man of valor, and just like Joshua you have been prepared for this time. You are being given the vision and the strategy. You are being commissioned and sent forth to claim the inheritance that the YHVH Saboath (The Lord of Hosts) has given His children. Walk forth into your destiny and be empowered by the Spirit of the Lord Most High.

Deuteronomy 31:3-8 (AMP) It is the LORD your God who will cross ahead of you; He will destroy these nations before you, and you shall dispossess them. Joshua is the one who will go across before you [to lead you], just as the LORD has said. The LORD will do to them just as He did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, when He destroyed them. The LORD will hand them over to you, and you shall do to them in accordance with all the commandments which I have commanded you. Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.” Then Moses called to Joshua and said to him in the sight of all [the people of] Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you will go with this people into the land which the LORD has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you will give it to them as an inheritance. It is the LORD who goes before you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

A prophetic word from Chuck D. Pierce and Deborah Degar from the Elijah List is connected to this. It is called “Let Me Strike You with My Lightning: Enter into Your “Conducting” Season!” ( This word speaks of God empowering His people – sending lightning from heaven to do so. It encourages that “If you will allow Me to make you My lightning rod, I will cause you to be one that will conduct power.” He is looking for those who will be in agreement with Him and are ready and unafraid to walk in His power.

In Hebraic thought, darkness is “obscurity”. Darkness hides things. This isn’t bad or good, it just is. Scripture says that God covers or hides Himself in darkness. (Thus the Shadow of God.) Treasure is often hidden in basements and in darkness. However, man also hides in darkness in the wrong way. (Sin.) Nothing is hidden from God’s sight. And at the end of the day, WE are His treasure. When we are in His shadow and see through His eyes, that which is hidden becomes plain to us. We can learn to see past the darkness and see what is being obscured.

A testimony from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.

There was a season that I walked through where I was an environment that was spiritually oppressive. One day, I began having very intense prophetic opened smells along with vivid visions. I perceived horrible smells almost like something was decaying. I kept asking the Lord, “What in the world is going on?”

One morning, He finally gave me understanding. He showed me that I was discerning evil spirits but just in a new way. The odd thing was the way I perceived them. I knew I was seeing into the second heaven. And I knew that the second heaven was supposed to be in darkness but everything was completely light! There were also other aspects of clarity in these visions as well that made the darkness less frightening. I understood that I was seeing the second heaven and the spiritual atmosphere through God’s eyes. To Him, even the darkness is as the light.

A little while later, the Holy Spirit began praying through me. I was praying over the darkness I had been discerning. In the Spirit, I suddenly saw this gross darkness; it was like a black fog. The Spirit gave me the words to pray—the request was that God would create an opening within the darkness and light the path for those trapped in it. I asked for a path to be laid in mercy that would lead people to Him. I saw the darkness split almost like the Red Sea. It opened up a path, and where the path was it was like bright daylight! Angels stood along the way holding back the darkness. I also saw golden tokens lining the path, almost like breadcrumbs. The tokens looked just like an Israeli coin I wear as a necklace—the agorot which has the menorah on it.

With the passage of time, I came to see that I wasn’t just praying for the people around me, I was also praying for myself. Although my circumstances were spiritually dark and heavy, God had no trouble seeing the path I needed to take out of these circumstance. He also didn’t have any trouble protecting me in that gross darkness. I was an intercessor who had been sent into the darkness but God gave me His eyes, His perspective, and the light of His Word to see by.

Deuteronomy 32:11-12 (NKJV) As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings, So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.

Another Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Child of the Light.”

Ephesians 5:13 (VOICE) When the light shines, it exposes even the dark and shadowy things and turns them into pure reflections of light.

Beloved, resist the urge to be intimidated by darkness for the power of My light far exceeds the deepest of night. One pinprick of light disperses the oppressive gloom, and you are a carrier of My light – you are filled with it.

So radiate without shame. Let it burst forth from you in all its inherent glory. You have a light that darkness cannot diminish or quell. Know and understand the power within you. You carry the Spirit of the Almighty. 

What or who can stand against you when you are filled with Me? Where is the purpose in being afraid? Does light tremble in fear darkness may overcome it? Never! Be confident, bold, and steadfast as you walk as a child of the Light.

Beloved, when you are in the midst of dark and turbulent circumstances, it is important that you do not lose sight of who you are in Me. You are light and you are salt. You are My emissary and a priest anointed for war. Wherever I send you, I work through you to shift atmospheres, preserve life, and overthrow all the powers of darkness. Your commission comes with its challenges but never forget, beloved—light overcomes the darkness, not the other way around. In every circumstance My presence goes with you to assure your victory for the Kingdom.

We have come through many battles together and you have come to experience My keeping power. Therefore, wherever I send you, walk in holy boldness. Cast down the lies that fear and intimidation bring to hinder My purposes through you. No situation is too hard for Me and no storm is too dark and thunderous for Me to guide you through. Gird yourself with the knowledge that absolutely nothing is too hard for Me.

The name of the silk hidden in this image is He Moves in Power. The colors in it are sky blue representing open heaven and spiritual realm, peacock blue representing fullness of His flow, pea green representing new life, deep dark blue representing deep mysteries and presence of God(Psalm 18:11), and gold shimmer representing glory and power of God.

Father, thank You for being light. Thank You for bringing clarity and direction. Thank You for empowering us with Your light and allowing us the honor of being knights of light and warriors of truth simply by being Yours. May we shine brightly and make You proud. To You be all the honor and glory.
