As I pondered the Tool vision, I was reminded of the open vision I had experienced in church a

after me. I ran to the house and closed the door behind me with the snake right on my heels. I
knew then, don't underestimate a snake!
Don't turn your back, don't ignore it, don't run away from it, crush it's head.
Now is the time for warfare and now is the time for praises to rise up!
I perceived the dream to say that it is time to stand against the plots of satan with our weapons
of warfare: prayer, the whole armor of God, decrees, obedience.
Speak the word against fear and destruction, the enemies of God! Time to write what you hear
from God daily
