2 Samuel 5:19-20 (NASB) “Then David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You give them into my hand?” And the LORD said to David, “Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand, So David came to Baal-perazim and defeated them there; and he said, “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim.”

God began to speak to me prophetically that the body of Christ is coming into a divine season of perpetual breakthroughs. Heaven is pregnant with your purpose, destiny and promise. Many are in this season asking the Lord, did they miss Him? Did they miss their season? Or what’s going on? Reason for these inquiries is because what it looks like in the natural is contradicting what God is speaking and declaring over His people. There has been times where it seems like God is not speaking or has been silent. God revealed to me that He is not silent but actually waiting on His people to inquire of Him for strategy to defeat their enemies and to breakthrough spiritually, financially, mentally, economically, physically and socially.


The opposing forces of the enemy is causing many of God’s people to become weary in well doing.  When the warfare of resistance has become noticeably intolerant that God wants His people to be like King David to inquire of the Him what to do next. The problem sometimes we as Christian believers find ourselves in is taking matters into our own hands without ever at times inquiring of the Lord for instructions, directives, and guidance. The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; And do not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight (NASB)”

As we put our total reliance in God while inquiring of Him, He will give us the master plan of victory. The intense warfare indicts that your blessing is on the other side. It’s an indication that the enemy is threatened by what is about to happen for you and through you, so you will begin to see challenges to your progression. There will be spiritual Philistines that are standing in your way to block, hinder and stop you from ever fulfilling your prophetic purpose. I want to encourage you NOT to be intimidated by the constant pressure and magnitude of your opposition.


The greater the opposition the greater the opportunity that God will open for you. The greater your prophecy the greater the persecution. Don’t get weary in the battle. If God is before you than who can be against you? If you want to defeat any enemy of your destiny, than you must first inquire of the Captain of the Armies of God. God doesn’t want you to retreat when you see resistance and opposition coming. It’s a sign to stand your ground and charge forward! The enemy lines are assembled but God is greater to defeat the adversaries’ attacks. King David knew that in order to win this particular battle, he needed God’s intervention.


As King David went up to battle, he went to a place called “Baal Perazim” God want to take you to a divine place prophetically as He did with King David to “Baal-Perizam” which means the “Master Breaker, Lord of the Breakthroughs, Lord of the Breaches and the Lord has broken through.” David inquired of the Lord after being anointed king over all of Israel and Judah and evicting the Jebusites in the city of David. The Philistines heard that he was anointed king and they formed an army to defeat him. God gave a strategy to David after he sought the Lords’ counsel and directives to defeat them.

God gave him clearance to fight and the Lord was with David and they defeated the frontlines of the Philistines and David called that place Baal-Perazim declaring that the Lord has broken through his enemies. David compared the defeat and power of God as to the breaking through of waters. There are places in your life that God wants you to bring to him. God wants to help you receive your divine breakthrough.

2 Samuel 5:20 NIV, “So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.” So that place was called Baal Perazim.”


We can see that David went to a place where heaven was pregnant and God was there to meet Him and it was a place identified as Baal-Perazim in which David declared and described it so emphatically of what God was doing supernaturally against his enemies. Heaven is about to deliver your promise and God is going to break out like water bursting to consume the enemies of God. This is your DUE SEASON!
