Song of Deborah
By Chad Taylor
I saw a valley of dead bodies, corpses and casualties of some cruel war. As far as the eye could see, dead and dying bodies. Amidst the dead were women dancing and twirling with timbrels and banners. They skipped and twirled around the blood strewed masses. I was haunted by what I saw. I immediately assumed this was the fallen of the enemy, and these were somehow the handmaidens of the Lord dancing some dance of victory. Again in late 1998 the vision appeared again. But what now unfolded I understood the meaning behind the dancing and the twirling of the women that has so perplexed me.
As these handmaidens danced the bodies of the dead and dying began to take on strength! Life began to ebb in their members again! They were stirring from the places they had fell! Limbs that were severed from battle were appearing in place again! It was as if the very dancing and twirling and sound of the timbrels was prophesying life to the slain! As I continued to watch this drama unfold I then realized this was exactly what was happening! This was a prophetic dance of worship ministered by the handmaidens of the Most High God that was breathing strength and vitality into the war torn and battered!
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Awake! Awake! Deborah, awake, awake and utter a song!" (Judges 5:12) It was the song of Deborah! The song of victory that was being played out on the battle field of souls through human instruments of praise and prophecy! As they danced and jumped and twirled, the slain rose to their feet with swords lifted high in praise! They sang the song of David, "Let the high praises of God be in our mouth, and a two-edged sword in our hand! To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgement written, this honor have all His saints!" (Psalm 149) They were singing this song and dancing with new found hope and strength!
I know now more of the understanding of this vision. There is an anointing released in the hearts of His handmaidens. An anointing to dance and sing a song of resurrection! Even as they did on the day of His resurrection! They (the women) were the first to carry the news of His return from the grave! They were labeled mad by some! But it was no matter, He lives! Again there is a song upon their lips and it brings the life of the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ. It lifts the hands that hang down and strengthens the weak knees, so now those that are broken can be healed! The ones in prison cells can be free! Liberated from their captivity! It is the day the Army of God is rising. Assembling. Building itself up in love. With the echoing sound of the Song of Deborah! This is the day of the Lord...

and compelling them to go out...
