God’s Wonder Women

All the World Is Waiting For You

 The Release of Wonder Woman

Release the Wonder Women!  I believe that’s what God is saying to our half of the human race.   How significant that the new Wonder Woman movie was released in 2017, which has been prophetically named, the “Year of the Woman.” When I was in Israel in February, I was unaware of this movie in the making, but casually remarked to friends, “They need to bring back Wonder Woman.”  Something was stirring in my spirit before I was aware of its significance. I was so delighted to learn that it was indeed being made.  I began to sense the importance of encouraging the “wonder women of God.” It matters deeply to God that His ladies understand their true identity, and become confident in His love and calling in this hour.

A Long Line of Warriors

There is a long line of “Wonder Women” who have been warriors in the kingdom of God.  The director of the Wonder Woman Patty Jenkins’ remark to Lynda Carter,  the lead actress of the 1970’s television series sounds like a charge from the great cloud of witnesses:  “…We were born of your Wonder Woman and it is a line, it’s a chain. We are a continuation of a vision and a dream…” (USA news).  It has been God’s ancient dream to partner with women of His heart to destroy the things hinder His love on the earth.

Wonder Women Like  You

The Bible is full of “Wonder Women” like you. Eve was promised that from her would come the ultimate evil-destroyer, Jesus Christ.  Deborah was a national leader in ancient Israel. She described herself as a “mother,” but she could not deny the call to be a warrior when the enemy encroached upon her tribe.  She was called to rise to action, even in a decidedly patriarchal society.  Jael chose to fight when the enemy dared to hide in her tent.  He assumed that she would be fearful and weak. She was simply described as a wife, but she drove a spike through the enemy’s head and became a hero.  Mary, went against current cultural norms to become a serious disciple of Jesus. She chose to sit at Jesus’ feet rather than stay in the kitchen where “she belonged.”  The Samaritan woman, repeatedly rejected by men and women, change her town with the gospel. Women were the first to see the resurrected Lord and were commissioned as heralds of the good news. In the early church, they were apostles, prophets, and leaders. Each woman’s call is unique, but we have all inherited a heritage from the Lord passed down through female warriors of old who came out of their comfort zone to be fully engaged and powerful in the purposes of God.

Do You Know Who You Are?

One of my favorite scenes in the movie was when the heroine discovered that she didn’t only possess the ancient, secret weapon, she was the weapon.  Like Diana, our power lies not in what we have or do, or what others think we are, it is in knowing who we are.  When we begin to move from that place, our supernatural powers can go to work.  “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.” (2 Cor. 10.4)  When we discover our true identities, our souls will be satisfied, and the enemy that wars against our minds, who fills our hearts with fear and insecurity and hopelessness will lose his grip. The high thoughts of God toward His beloved flow freely.  There is no shortage of love and acceptance in the kingdom. They are ours to be embraced with beautiful intention.

The Warring Bride

The end-time battle is manifesting in the women alive on the earth right now. The Bible describes two women in the Book of Revelation, the Lord’s Bride and the Harlot of Babylon.  The Lord’s “Wonder Women” love Him fiercely. They march right up to the throne of grace. They believe they are washed in the blood of Jesus, and therefore, welcomed and celebrated in His presence as were the women around Jesus. They have the faith and audacity to ask their God to do His will on earth as it is in heaven, releasing signs, wonders, and miracles into desperate situations. They lead, speak, and take action. They boldly represent His heart and purposes to others with feminine grace and dignity, clinging to the truth of His Word. They love God’s ways and God’s solutions. They fight for freedom and justice wherever the Spirit leads.

The Evil Counterfeit

The Harlot of Babylon, on the other hand, opposes Jesus and everything for which He stands. You can see that spirit manifesting now in radical femininity. It seems irrational to call for a boycott against a movie featuring a woman as a powerful super hero, but they did, which is just further confirmation of the prophetic significance of this movie. The lead actress Gal Gadot is Israeli. She served in the fight against Islamic terrorism, a fact that has triggered an interesting backlash from those manifesting the harlot of  Revelation 17 who is “drunk on the blood of the saints and those who testified to Jesus.”  While demanding rights and respect, this spirit drives women to spew hatred and march for the right to shed the blood of unborn babies.  A strange, philosophical alliance has formed between this movement and  Islam, a religion that violently oppresses women and claims they are the property of men with no rights at all.  This seems like a massive contradiction, but it makes sense when you consider that proponents of radical Islam share in their anti-Christ blood-lust, as they shamelessly rally their followers to shed the blood of Jews and Christians to advance the coming of their messiah.

Wonder Women, All the World is Waiting

The Lord wants His women bold and free and powerful under the control of the Holy Spirit. Ladies, we must fight against everything in our own souls that would keep us silent and passive in this hour. It’s time to be a living picture of the Bride of Christ, full of the Spirit, and fierce for His kingdom, God’s Wonder Women.  This headline displays the message for this hour: “‘Wonder Woman’: All the World Is Waiting For You.” (Epix.fyc , May 30, 2017)
