The 12th Mountain Division Intercession Team
Article by Liz Robinson
The Lord calls the WISE Intercession Team “The 12th Mountain Division”; why is this important for you to know? The number (12) represents God’s governmental order in His Word. We are named for our ministerial governmental and apostolic – prophetic calling. God named us as a prototype of the 10th Mountain division (Light Infantry), who are a United States of America, Army troop whose motto is, “Climb to Glory.” God showed me in a dream and subsequently led me to a book in a book store that mirrored the dream in pictures and words to describe how we are patterned after this Division.
The 10th Mountain Division are known for being the alpine combat arm to the U.S. military and for their preparedness and speed in being deployed anywhere in the world. They go into the high and challenging places like mountains in Afghanistan, Russia, Europe, and other countries during war time to engage and overtake the enemy’s forces to ensure freedom. They also bring humanitarian and peacekeeping efforts to our country and other countries of the world.
We as a team at WISE, are like them; we protect those we serve, we seek to know, understand, and implement the strategies of our Commander in Chief; we follow Him and obey His plans. We partner with His Holy Spirit and dismantle the enemy’s strategies, base camps, places of defense and offense and we establish new territories, strategy and deployment centers to usher in the True Freedom of God to the people of the earth; to those who know Him and do not know Him, yet.
We feel that the Lord wants us to emphasize and focus on our heritage and calling as the 12th Mountain Division and to help you see more about how this came to be and what we, as a team represent.
The Lord brought forth the intercession team of (W.I.S.E. Ministries International, Workplace. Intercession. Support. Empowerment.) as an extension of the intercession team He developed for a new local church that He called us to pioneer and pastor here in Austin, TX, in 2004. WISE team of intercession is highly strategic, targeted, and very effective in partnering with the Lord to bring freedom to many.
As local church pastors, we were blessed to develop excellent leaders, teach and preach the Word of God, conduct awesome seminars to train many people in prophetic ministry from our country and various nations of the world, connect with many ministries in serving our city, and organize and lead conferences with national ministry leaders in Austin. We loved doing this as well as discipling others and reaching out evangelistically and serving and meeting the needs of families, businesses, ministries, and service centers in our communities; all of which were effectively accomplished because of the prayer team’s willingness to partner with God’s Holy Spirit for His will to be done in the people and in the city.
When God birthed the seedling of WISE in 2005, as we were pastoring; we had one business client who I, Liz was praying for (3) hrs per week. Over the span of (3) years, while we were pastoring our local church, God had Charles and I pour our lives and what we had learned in business and ministry for the past (17) years, into this one couple. We trained them to become stronger Christians, to support and empower them in their business, to have a fortified marriage, to experience inner healing and deliverance, to enter in and soak in the presence of the Lord, and to develop and prepare them for the ministry to which they would be called in the near future. We are very blessed that (6) yrs later this couple continues to thrive and partner with WISE and just last year, we helped them launch their ministry outreach to their county which brings unity and service through the churches to meet the needs of communities.
This couple became the prototype for the ministry design the Lord would name, WISE Ministries International as he transitioned us from full time local pastors to full time corporate pastors for businesses and ministries in the communities and nations of the world. Also we are able to now, through the facilities of WISE; (2) church buildings and (7) offices, bless (5) local churches and a business, with reduced rent, to share and operate this space and continue with outreach and help for our city.
1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 4:18
Please take a few minutes and read the prior blog entry on our website of Descriptions, History and websites of the 10th Mountain Division to see why the Lord has called you as a potential client to be ministered to by our 12th Mountain Division or as an intercessor to minister in the 12th Mountain Division; armed and ready to set the captives free and declare the freedom of the Lord!
