I Heard the Lord Say, “The Cavalry is Coming”
by Michelle Flora
Mid-August I heard the Lord say, “The Cavalry is coming.” Then I heard Him say, “The cavalry is to go ahead, not behind.” I pondered on this because I always thought of the Cavalry as the ones who came to rescue after a disaster had happened or there was a need for rescuing. The Lord began to speak to me about how there is a Cavalry in the heavenly realm and a Cavalry here on earth.
Over the next few days I continued to ask the Lord about this. One evening the Lord said to me, “The four living creatures are the Cavalry of the heavenlies”. As I prayed into this, the Lord revealed to me that this is because the primary job of the four living creatures is to declare high praises towards the King. Revelation 4:8 (NKJV), “The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: ‘Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty, who was and is and is to come!’”
A few days later, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston Texas (my home town). My husband brought home the newspaper talking about the hurricane. Its headline said, “Cavalry is Coming”. Once again, I knew in my spirit that this was the earth’s perspective of the cavalry—ones who were sent in after the disaster. But Heaven’s perspective was that the Cavalry were the ones who were intended to “go before, not behind.”
A few nights later as I was falling asleep, I saw a Clydesdale horse. I felt the Lord prompt me to type into my phone, “What is the job of a Clydesdale horse?” When I did that the Lord highlighted this fact: They are used as the drum horses for the British Household Cavalry. This led me to investigate what the Household Cavalry is. This is what I found: the Household Cavalry is part of the Household Division and it is the Queen’s official bodyguard. And of course, the bodyguards frequently go before and not behind. They are intended to be the protection, not the rescue.
This Cavalry is a company of people who will lead the way in high praises of the King. The drummers are important because they hold a rhythm from Heaven that will lead the way for other sounds. This Cavalry will go before, not behind and will consist of worshipers and intercessors who release declarative sounds of high praise of the King.
I sense a season ahead where the Household Cavalry will transition from just walking ahead to surrounding the Queen/Bride. She will be encircled. On every side of Her there will be high praises of God happening and walking in unison with Her. This will create a canopy of praise as She is escorted to the King. God is stirring the hearts of many to join the Household Cavalry. They will be ones who release a sound that has not been heard by man. It’s a sound that will declare the beauty of the Lamb. This sound will provoke a Psalm 86:9 response, “All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name.”
Michelle Flora and her husband Scott serve as missionaries at the Salem (Oregon) House of Prayer. Their primary focus is to establish a prophetic culture of lovesick worshipers through the place of intimacy with God. Their vision is to see a dwelling place of night and day prayer established in every city in the Northwest. In addition to their ministry at the Salem House of Prayer, they travel and minister as a family, strengthening and encouraging other praying and prophetic communities.
