Dressed for Battle

Dream: I was in a vast army, divided into sections. We were wearing full silver armor. I heard the army leader shouting from the distance. He was reading from a large scroll. He shouted:
“Victoria, dressed for battle.”
I knew he was talking about the section I was in. I and everyone in my section were happy that we were deemed “ready” but wondering why the others were not.
Victoria meaning: Victoria is the Latin word for ‘victory’ and is used as the feminine form corresponding to the name Victor.
The firstfruits/remnant of Gods army is ready for battle! This is a battle we are going to win! Jesus already won! It reminds me of Gideon’s Army. It was a large army to begin with and God cut it down to only 300 men who were ready for battle.
(See also: my friends son had a dream about Gideon recently!)
I got another word while thinking about this. It was the army captain shouting again from the distance, addressing my section: Get ready! On your Mark’s, get set…
We all know the next word is go. I felt such anticipation, excitement from the army around me. Get ready everyone!
God also gave me Psalm 93 as a confirmation. It says how the Lord is dressed and ready for battle!
Psalm 93:1-5 ¹The Lord reigns. He is robed in majesty. The Lord is robed; he wears strength around his waist. Indeed, the world is established; it cannot be moved. ² Your throne has been secure from ancient times; you have always been king. ³ The waves roar, O Lord, the waves roar, the waves roar and crash. ⁴ Above the sound of the surging water, and the mighty waves of the sea, the Lord sits enthroned in majesty. ⁵ The rules you set down are completely reliable. Holiness aptly adorns your house, O Lord, forever.
Get your armor ready:
“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints …” (Ephesians 6:13-18)
