- The battle of the bulge is happening in the spirit
- We are in the enemies territory. We must plunder the land
- It’s time to take our inheritance in the promised land
At the beginning of April 2021 The Lord took Apostle Michael Petro into a vivid vision where He revealed to him the battle that was unfolding in the spirit realm.
In this vision Apostle Michael saw two armies fighting against each other. He asked the Lord what was happening in the vision and the Lord expanded more to him revealing that this battle was taking place in Germany during World War II. Apostle realised that what he was seeing was ‘The Battle of the Bulge’, the historic fight that occurred when the Allies gained victory over the German soldiers and started running towards Germany.
This battle is seen as one of the greatest battles ever fought by the US military as most of the Allied side was made up of American troops. The Battle of the Bulge was Germany’s last attempt to drive the Allies off of mainland Europe. When Germany broke through the Allies defense line they tried to advance quickly but many American soldiers held their ground. Small groups of American troops dug in fiercely to hold the front lines until the reinforcements came that led to their victory. This great victory was what sealed the fate of Hitler and the Nazi’s in World War II.
Apostle Michael watched this violent scene playing out before him shift as the battle line began to flex in towards Germany. The Lord told apostle Michael that we have broken through the enemy lines. The Lord emphasised to him that it is not time to wait or play around but it’s time to run.
Apostle Michael saw that many people would retreat from this battle, being picked off from the left and the right because of their lack of faith to run. The Lord urged Apostle Michael that he needed to run forward and move into what the Lord is calling him to, no matter who goes with him.
Sometime after having this intense vision Apostle was having a conversation with his friend, a minister by the name of Henry Parker. Henry was telling Apostle Michael of the prayer vigil that his church was holding to pray over hundreds of cities each night.
Apostle explained to Henry how the Lord was moving in huge ways and there was revival breaking out in the church that reminded him of things he witnessed during the Toronto and Pensacola revivals. There was an atmosphere of excitement as Henry and those with him revelled in this news of revival.
Another brother David, an intercessor from Henry Parker’s church began to tell Apostle Michael what the Lord was showing them at this time. David said the Lord revealed that right now we are in The Battle of the Bulge and there is a bulge in the line. Apostle Michael was amazed to hear this and knew that it was the second witness to what the Lord showed him.
There are no coincidences with God. The Lord enlightens us by speaking in symbolisms to show us heavenly things that are occurring by using natural examples that we are familiar with. Apostle Michael understood that the Lord was using this specific terminology to reveal to us that there is a huge breakthrough happening right now in the spirit realm and we have to run forward with everything within us.
After sharing this vision with the church the following Sunday, Apostle Michael admonished everyone saying:
“It is time to get our inheritances. It is time to take back what the enemy has stolen from the church. The Lord will give us things that we have never possessed.”
There was a heavy stirring in the spirit at the release of these words. An expectation and a fear of the Lord arose in the hearts of the people at the closeness of the promise that was theirs for the taking. There was also an understanding given that every word that comes from the Lord must be met with action, obedience and a digilent pursuit. Jesus stated very simply in John 14:15
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.”  John 14:15
So what does it really mean to obtain the spoils of the Promise land and how is this done?
Apostle layed out these battle plans during his 4 part teaching of “The 144,000” where he stated:
“Malachi prophesied that the spirit of Elijah would return in the final harvest to raise up a new priesthood because in the end times the priesthood in the church would have become corrupt. The revelation Elijah releases takes them through a death to self process, killing off the old man along with his deeds (Colossians 3:9).”
This ‘old man’ is spiritually speaking of our unreformed soul, still living according to our worldly desires and ways or “the wilderness”. The wilderness is a place of spiritual barrenness, there is no fruit of the Holy Spirit being produced. Through dying to the ‘old man’ and our old ways we experience a resurrection.
“Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.”  Romans 6:8
The spirit of prophecy has this effect on us, just as it is written that God kills and makes alive through the process of revelation. The 144,000 are those who will be sealed before God breathes into them. They will carry and wear the resurrected body. The resurrected body is known as the ‘Promised land’. It is mankind being restored to its former form and glory that was lost when Adam and Eve fell into sin in the garden.
How can we discern if we are a part of this priesthood? What are their characteristics?
Apostle Michael stated:
“This remnant is one of the most important positions and ministries that was ever created. The whole Bible is about them. Most soldiers are trained to fight from afar. They’re not close to their enemies to fight them. But the 144,000 are special forces. They’re not coming to play around; they’re coming to bring maximum damage to the kingdom of darkness. The Lord is bringing those who are violent in their faith.” 
It’s one thing to talk about Jesus, but do our actions show that we live Jesus? People need to see Jesus in us not just hear about it. Did Jesus not say
“you worship me with your lips, but your hearts are far from me,” Matthew 15:8
The glory that is coming is going to be revealed in those whose souls have been made ready for it. You’re not going to be able to receive it unless your soul has been sanctified by the teachings of Elijah. The Early Church understood that it was the teachings of Elijah that would raise up and seal the 144,000 but this understanding has been lost in the church today. Just as the 144,000 are grossly misunderstood, so is the role of Elijah and the magnitude of missing this prophet who is coming to raise up and seal the remnant. 
“The Lord is not looking for those who are always repenting for their sins and not changing. He is looking for those who are going through the veil to be transformed. The High Priests are the only ones who go behind the veil and this group of God’s chosen are a high priestly race that is going behind the veil and only they are able to see and hear what is taught in the glory realm.” 
We pray this vision fills you with zeal to push forward into the promises the Lord has in store for those diligently seeking Him! Let us march forward as one army in one accord under the guidance of Elijah.
“Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.””  Numbers 13:30
