The Lord showed me in prayer a “Goliath Giant” over the UK. Its head is in Cornwall. The word for Goliath in the Hebrew “Galah” has to do with putting captives on display usually in the nude. It means to uncover or publish in a disgraceful manner. Goliath was publicly disgracing God’s people on the battlefield in I Samuel 17. Strongs Concordance #1540
I ask the Lord about what this Giant represents? He told me that it stands for Idolatry which blasphemes His name. The head of this giant is in Cornwall. He told me that there are 5 Stones he is giving us to slay the Giant with, from His Word. He gave me the first stone that I am now releasing to you. I have the sense that this stone is being spoken to both the Giant and the Churches of your nation. The Giant has lived to taunt the Church like it did in biblical times because the people of God would not raise up and face it until a shepherd boy named David came and took up for the Lord to defend His name.
Here is the first stone God releases to us to use as a proclamation to defeat this Giant, “You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourselves any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow down to the nor serve them. For I, the Lord you God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:3-6
It occurs to me that when David came against Goliath he advanced with Proclamations. See I Samuel 17:45-51
“Father, I advance with other leaders this day in the UK against the Goliath you have revealed and exposed. I proclaim this day that your people in the UK will draw near to the battlefield to see this giant defeated. We address this giant in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Creator of Heaven and Earth! You have come against the people of God with a sword in times past and caused the shedding of innocent blood upon our lands. But we come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into the hand of the praying people who stand with the believers in the UK. The word of the Lord will strike you and take your head off and put you on display. It will expose you before men that all the world may know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle if the Lord’s and He will give you into our hands. We call to the Church of the UK across the ocean. We proclaim a calling forth of the church to raise up in the strength and the might of the King of Kings who is Christ Jesus. Stop trembling before this Giant and rise up against it! Shout to the Lord as in the day of battle and come against this giant. Declare with us ‘We will no longer tolerate this false god. We will not bow down and serve other gods in this nation. We will expose and call idolatry for what it is! We repent for serving other gods and turn to the one and only true God. We ask for His mercy and the in dwelling power of the Holy Spirit that we might serve Him and keep His Commandments. We reject the false Gods that have invaded our nation and declare that the Lord of Host who is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is our God and defender. He will deliver us from the hand of Goliath!’ We now release this stone of truth against this Giant in Jesus Name. Amen!”
The story goes on to tell us that when the stone hit its mark, “The men of Israel and Judah arose and shouted, and pursued the Philistines as far as the entrance of the valley and to the gates of Ekron and the Philistines fell…” (verse 52).
Let us arise this day and shout to the Lord! He is the Lord of Hosts who goes before us. He is mighty in battle. His truth and word goes before us. He will slay His enemies and triumph over them and establish His name in the UK. His Church will show its self mighty in truth, glorious in righteousness, and great victory will come forth! We release this stone of truth against the giant of Idolatry in this nation in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen!
