“This is My Boomerang Against Your Enemy” – A Word by Andrew Towe
I heard the Lord say, “The enemy has been stirring demonic attacks against many, in hopes to thwart the promises that I have decreed through my prophets for this new decade. He has used discouragement, strife, misunderstandings, envy and numerous other tactics to try to impede what I am doing. My miracles are already in motion. Angels have been dispatched and all of the ingredients for a movement are now boiling over. What the adversary does not understand is the fire of opposition is only causing my burning ones to blaze even greater. Satan has recognized that I am quickly stirring the formulation for a great awakening. Everything I have spoken will come to pass. Don’t be dismayed by the threats of the enemy. MY PROMISES ARE GREATER THAN HIS THREATS. War with your prophecies and the words that I have spoken to you. Stand steadfast, refusing to move to the left or right. Keep your eyes focused on me. I am your help. Remember, your enemy is defeated and My Word will be accomplished, just as I promised!”
The Lord showed me a vision of fiery darts being sent by the enemy, purposed to cause great harm and destruction. But, instead of them penetrating their target, they ricocheted off, hurling back to the direction from which they came.
The Lord spoke to me and said, “This is My BOOMERANG against your enemy!” I quickly researched the definition of the word. Dictionary.com defines “boomerang” as “something, as a scheme or argument, that does injury to the originator”. Did you see that? Can you hear what God is saying by using this word? God is causing every plan, plot and scheme to trigger injury to the originator. The enemy meant it for evil, but God is turning it for your good.
God brought me to the Book of Esther. It begins with the story of Queen Vashti refusing to display her beauty for the King of Persia. Her actions caused her to be stripped from her title, which led the King to search for a new Queen.
Don’t miss the prophetic symbolism in this text. The Lord revealed to me that the king’s bride having been summoned to display her beauty before him and his guests was like the bride of Christ (the Church) who has been summoned to display His glory before Him and all the earth. Queen Vashti was rejected because she refused to answer the call of the King. We are on the edge of a move of God unlike any that we have ever seen. God is calling His Church to move into the glory realm. God is sounding the alarm to awaken His bride. Will you answer the call? The time is now! Will you display your beauty which He has bestowed upon you so others may see?
During this time, a Jewish beauty, who had been orphaned at an early age and raised by her older cousin, was chosen to be among many women in the King’s harem. The Bible tells us that the King loved Esther more than all of the other women.
Haman, the Agagite, was promoted to the position of grand vizier by the Persian King. It was required that the entire court bow down before him, but Moredcai, the Jewish Benjamite, refused to bow, for he would not honor the enemy of King Saul, Agag. This enraged Haman, and he vowed to not only to make Mordecai pay, but to take revenge on all of the Jewish people. In his pursuit of vengeance, he persuaded the king to decree the death of all of the Jews on a set day. Moreover, Haman was thrilled and had gallows built that would be used to kill his nemesis, Mordecai.
However, before the decree was carried out, the King could not sleep one night and asked for the royal chronicles to be read to him. Unwittingly, he discovered that Mordecai had exposed a plot to kill him and had never been rewarded for stopping the assignation. He asked Haman’s advice on how he could honor a man in whom the King delighted. Haman arrogantly thought the King was referring to him. He proposed to the King that a gift of fine clothes and a royal procession for the man in whom he delighted. Then, Haman learned the King was not speaking about him at all, but instead he spoke of Mordecai as the man with whom he would show veneration. God had moved behind the scenes and placed Haman in a position where he had to honor Mordecai!
That night Queen Esther held a banquet and invited the king and Haman; at the banquet she revealed her Jewish nationality to her husband, the King and, also, exposed the plot of Haman to kill her people. Haman threw himself at the feet of Esther and begged for his life. The King came in and thought he was attacking her and ordered Haman hung on his own gallows. This was a Divine reversal! That which Haman had planned for God’s servant, Mordecai, instead boomeranged upon him, and the destroyer suffered the fate of his own plan. Furthermore, it did not stop there! All of Haman’s estate was given to Mordecai, including the King’s signet ring. The signet ring indicated that Mordecai was empowered with authority to act in the behalf of the King.
This was the perfect example of God’s boomerang! The enemy meant to destroy the Jewish people, but God caused it to boomerang back to the originator. It caused promotion for Mordecai and the Jewish people. This is what He is doing for you. The enemy is going to wish he would have never sent the waves of opposition against you. Because now God’s boomerang has turned the tide back to him. I hear the Lord say, “My boomerang will cause your Haman to be hung on his own gallows. The supernatural turnaround is already in motion and you will see it swiftly.”
