The Itsy Bitsy Spider climbed up the water spout, Down came the rain and washed the Spider out, Up came the sun and dried up all the rain, And the Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the spout again. We all know this nursery rhyme growing up.
In my dream many people were about to walk into a place of REPENTANCE. But, before they could this SNEAKY SPIDER tried to stop them. The Sneaky Spider would draw their eyes in close to the super silky web that he was spinning. He was distracting them and pulling them in. As he spun his web it tried to entrap them tight, so he could take a bite, but he didn’t succeed.
I then started to hear The Itsy Bitsy Spider Song again. And then another Spider came out from around the corner ready to attack. The 2 Spiders were sneaky and creepy. If they didn’t succeed the song would play again and they would try again. Finally the people were able to get past the Spiders and walked to REPENTANCE where the Spiders were killed!
The Lord showed me lots of people right now are battling EXTREME ANXIETY. This EXTREME ANXIETY has stolen so much. The enemy is fighting hard to keep many of you in a place of ANXIETY. As he spins the web around you very tightly it feels like you are suffocating and can’t breath. There are days many are feeling like they just can’t take a breath and their chest is heavy and tight. This is very real folks! The enemy is trying to entrap you in his web so he can bite you. As this web entraps you it prevents you from walking in REPENTANCE.
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything every circumstance and situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your specific requests known to God.” Philippians 4:6(AMP)
This ANXIETY has weakened your heart, mind and body. It has become such a GIANT in your life! You are BEAUTIFUL! You are IMPORTANT! And you are LOVED! This ANXIETY is not part of your IDENTITY!
The KEY is to walk into the place of REPENTANCE. Repent in any way that you aligned with ANXIETY and anything else that is not from God. REPENTANCE will KILL the SPIDER and the WEB! The Itsy Bitsy Spider song will END and no more will it climb up the spout again! God wants to bring you up higher. So HIGH that ANXIETY can’t reach you!
The enemy is fighting so hard to keep you from your VICTORY and TRIUMPH that is upon you. The Lord is releasing revelation. He is silencing the enemy’s whisper (the Itsy Bitsy Spider Song)! It has ENDED!!
The Lord has shown you and uncovered the cobweb of lies that entrapped you. You will be FREE! As we are seeing heightened intensification of witchcraft in this hour the Lord doesn’t want us to focus on that and make it a GIANT in our life. The Lord said that the enemy is “ITSY BITSY!”
The Spider represents the enemy. Without its web of manipulation, deceit and lies the enemy is thrown off balance. The way to disturb the web is through REPENTANCE, PRAYER and WORSHIP.
We must reject the operation of witchcraft with the body of Christ. REPENTANCE is a must!
The 2 Spiders also stood out to me. The 2 Spiders were trying to bring DIVISION. They wanted to DIVIDE what the Lord wants to bring in to our lives. But, the Lord was turning the DIVISION (2) in to MULTIPLICATION (2)! The 2 was DOUBLE BLESSING and DOUBLE PORTION.
” Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7(NIV)
The enemy hates every step that you are taking to get closer to God, so he will try to keep you from God. The enemy mimics a Spider’s ways.
Most of the time we don’t look or see Spider Webs, so when the enemy spins it’s web we don’t see his trap until we are already in it. When we are entrapped in it, disaster comes in to our life.
“A trap catches them by the heel, and it holds them tight. A rope is hidden on the ground to trip them. A trap is waiting in their path. On every side terrors frighten them. Fears follow every step they take. Disaster is hungry for them. Ruin stands close by, waiting for them to fall.” Job 18:9-12(ERV)
Spider Webs are made from a liquid silk that is made in a Spider’s body. It is interesting to me that the Spider uses its beautiful web to catch its prey that is made from silk and very appealing to the eye. The enemy can also make a Web that is very appealing to the eye. For example it will entrap you in his Web of money, sex, lies, alcohol or drugs. As the silk Web intertwines and twists he can intertwine and twist people’s words that you are hearing to bring on pain and anger, when really that’s not even what the person said. But the enemy will always make you think the opposite. And then there are just some people where their focus isn’t on God but only to judge you and gossip about you.
“People who forget God are like that. Those who oppose him have no hope. They have put their trust in something weak. It is like a spider’s web. When they lean against it, it will break. When they reach out for it, it will not hold them up.” Job 8:13-15(ERV)
Spiders can have a poisonous venom that immobilizes its prey. The prey’s insides become liquified so the Spider then sucks the liquified contents of their body and what’s left is an empty skeleton or shell. The enemy has a way of getting into our heads and hearts. When he bites us with the venomous poison, he sucks us dry and we are empty.
Spiders usually hide so they aren’t seen or exposed to light. The enemy can never function or be seen in God’s light!
“And this Living Expression is the Light that bursts through gloom- the Light that darkness could not diminish!” John 1:5(TPT)
“The eyes of your spirit allow revelation-light to enter into your being. When your heart is open the light floods in. When your heart is hard and closed, the light cannot penetrate and darkness takes its place. Open your heart and consider my words. Watch out that you do not mistake your opinions for revelation-light!” Luke 11:34-35(NIV)

The Itsy Bitsy Spider had spun his web real tight, He tried to entrap you and tangle you up with lies, Down came the rain and washed the Spider out, Out came the sun and dried up all the webs, and the Itsy Bitsy Spider will never come back again! THE END!!

Love and Blessings,
