When male and female—operating in their created capacities and identifies—take up their weapons of warfare and fight together, I believe satan will experience a nightmare scenario.

A Prophetic Restoration of the Genesis 1 Dominion Mandate

There are several moments in Wonder Woman where both the lead male character and Diana (Wonder Woman) are fighting the enemy, side-by-side. The male is not less masculine because of the presence of a powerful woman. Likewise, the powerful woman is not hidden so the strength of the male can be given prominence.

When male and female—operating in their created capacities and identifies—take up their weapons of warfare and fight together, I believe satan will experience a nightmare scenario.

The redemptive work of Jesus on the Cross set us free from the curse of the law (see Gal. 3:13). I often fear that the modern Church is not aware of how expansive her redemption is. When the Spirit of God was poured out on Pentecost, power was released thus authorizing both men and women to advance the Kingdom of God on Earth. The disciples asked about when the Kingdom would be restored to Israel, right? Jesus didn’t ignore their question with His response; He just issued a superior answer. They were asking about some form of world-takeover; Jesus introduced something infinitely more powerful and impacting.

Remember how Paul explained our Kingdom-advancing assignment: “For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:3-4, ESV).

We do warfare in the invisible realm. As victories are secured in the spirit, there are measurable tangible shifts in the visible realm. There are cultural changes. Governments are impacted. Bodies are healed. Torment is broken. This demands prayer and intercession, yes, but it also demands presence. It demands the presence of God being carried by men and women into the epicenters of battle. Into media, arts, entertainment, politics, government, education and every other spheres of society. It demands man and woman fighting together, without distraction. Without men compromising their distinctives, and likewise, without women laying down theirs. When men and women partner together to do warfare in the spirit realm, occupying high places of leadership and influence, a dominion is released that takes us right back to Genesis 1.

God’s assignment to man and woman, together, was: “And God blessed them. And God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth'” (Gen. 1:28).

“What problems in society or the Church particularly burden you?”

God blessed “them” (not just him-Adam). God said to them to “subdue” the earth and have “dominion…over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

When men and women fight together, lead together, preach together, and advance the Kingdom together, there will be a powerful manifestation of darkness being subdued and the “creeping” ones—satan and his demons—being crushed under the feet of an authorized and anointed Ekklesia.

Decrees Over God’s Wonder(s) Women

• I decree that you are receiving a sword in this season—a sword of authority for your assignment. I decree that, right now, you are being set free from any intimidation associated with the assignment the Lord is extending to you.

• I break off word curses that have been pronounced over you.

• I break off the lie that your words, voice, and your thoughts don’t matter, either because they were rejected or because someone spoke over you.

• I decree your words matter—if women don’t prophesy, lead, and boldly speak forth, the fullness of Holy Spirit outpouring will not be released. It’s a “sons and daughters” movement.

• I decree that mantles are being released by the Sovereign God—not male or female mantles, but Holy Spirit mantles that release power for reformation assignments and callings.

• I decree that you are qualified for these mantles, not because of your gender, but because you said “Yes” to the One who distributes mantles.

For the Lord would ask: “Do you want it?” His invitation is not exclusive to a certain gender; it’s simply for whosoever will. Take up the sword and step into your assignment. You are God’s wonders woman, anointed and authorized to release the wonders of His Kingdom into the Earth! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
