It takes humility and childlike faith to remain in your Kingdom position, seated with Christ in heavenly places.
On one of my trips to Heaven when I was four years old I was eating fish with Jesus. I looked under the table (which was really like a different dimension) and there were scary and funny looking people, and then Jesus’ reaction was to laugh at them, and so we laughed together at them (demons). Jesus our great Shepherd does prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies as scripture writes; it is not a fairytale, it is my reality.
In this time of increased spiritual warfare we must go low. In going low in the earthly realm, we soar to heavenly heights above the noise in the spiritual – truly the upside down Kingdom. Jesus already positioned us here, though it is belief coupled with humility and childlike faith that give us continued access to rule and reign with Him. We take His lead, we enjoy His presence and provision, we laugh at the enemies beneath us, we fix our eyes on The Ruler of all and receive from Him. If He has made His enemies a footstool beneath His feet, then they are under our feet too.
Overflowing with His joy and presence, satisfied from the fullness that comes from dining at His table, we can then give from this abundance in the earthly realm and love the hurting, broken and distressed. This is how we must learn to move forward in a time of war.
“He raised us up with Christ the exalted One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!” Ephesians 2:6 TPT
“And He raised us up together with Him [when we believed], and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, [because we are] in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 2:6 AMP
“Yahweh said to my Lord, the Messiah: “Sit with me as enthroned ruler while I subdue your every enemy. They will bow low before you as I make them a footstool for your feet.””Psalms 110:1 TPT
“But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them.” Psalms 2:4 NLT (scoffs at His enemies)
“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over. Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.” Psalm 23:5-6 AMPC
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”
Psalms 16:11 AMP

Dear Amy, I am grateful for your post. I celebrate that Jesus has stayed true to His word in this time of increased spiritual warfare, especially amongst the Church leaders. His words to Sardis in Revelation 3 have come true in my orbit and the Church is dead. I can get no response from anyone! I have chronicled the story. I could email it to you if you wished. (I welcome the contact!!) He made them His footstool.
The Giants are already “dead.” Like you said, the remnant humbly follows the Lord’s leadership. In Revelation 19 the armies of heaven follow behind the Rider on the white horse.
