They started six years ago doing tent worship as An Army Rising in parks, beaches and business areas of San Diego. In 2017 God changed their name and changed their declaration to An Army Reigning. Now Kerah and Daniel Reil have been called and positioned to be catalysts and stewards for a company of people who would truly understand their creative identity and their assignment to carry the frequency of heaven.
For Kerah, that was definitely a stretch. There’s a lot of responsibility for a mission so vast and weighty. In obedience, they began declaring their mandate and felt the heavenly governing come to their house first. God had them start right where they were. And they asked, “So what does an army reigning look like for us? How do we actually walk that out for ourselves?”
So they began to gather and collaborate, and to equip and train. Kerah’s love and passion is worship, which can be a great gathering tool for the body to not get caught up in differences and doctrines and theologies, but rather, to rally around Jesus. From that place you can call people higher and the Lord can do a lot in those atmospheres. She hails from the tribe of Judah, so sending worship out before battle comes natural for her.
Reigning from Identity
While worship still precedes it, the strategies of spiritual warfare are shifting. Some people would like to stay away from the word ‘war,’ but we are in a war, and it really isn’t about the darkness as much as it’s about the light. It’s about coming into the fullness of our identity. If we fully believed who we are, we wouldn’t need to go after the enemy. We would be seated in our high places and decree, declare, and release court orders from the King himself. Not to say that there is no enemy—the enemy is real. But we are the answer. We are the response for everything that is going on in the world. It doesn’t really matter what darkness is doing as long as we’re doing what we’re created to do and being the light.
There’s a call to go and experience and do things that the earth is groaning for…things that have never taken place. And no matter what past generations have done, it’s all accumulated to this time now. God saves the best for last. We really are the best of our generational line. And that’s a—that’s a compliment. But it’s also a responsibility because there are demands on our very DNA to come into the fullness of all that Christ paid for. Even looking like Him, which is completely creative light, creative energy, creative sound. And everything we do, everything we touch is original. It’s not a copy. It’s not a counterfeit. It’s a sound that the earth has never known. And that’s what we’re just starting to tap into as a forerunning remnant.
We must know the mature things of Christ, including protocol in heaven, such as in the courts of heaven, and how that really works. Churches don’t teach you about this—they don’t even talk about it. But we have a responsibility to teach people things like the enemy’s role, who is he really and what is the truth of what he can do legally, and what he can’t do—those things we need to stand up against and not just roll over and take.
Mature sons have a part to play in bringing heaven to earth, and there’s a lot to do. The only way the government is going to come is through the mature sons, through the bride. So even Jesus Himself, even God is not going to do it. No, that is our job.
There is a company of people who have been hidden who are coming out now. People who know the spirit realm almost more than the natural. And even if we don’t recognize something the Lord shows us, it doesn’t matter. We just say, “Okay, I’ve never seen this. I’ve never been here, but I’m okay with that.” It’s actually that our spirit recognizes it, and if we’re in tune, we don’t freak out. It’s just different. And I think that I’ve realized that it’s my spirit who bears witness. So whatever my mind thinks, I don’t care. My soul can take a back seat because my spirit bears witness. I would say that’s a mark of a mature son—the soul taking a back seat to the spirit because the soul ultimately bows its knee. It’s not going to be about one church, one person, one movement. It’s going to be about an entire people, an entire generation, moving together, choosing to come into that fullness.
Establishing Government Through Land Assignments
Their mandate includes establishing the government of heaven on the earth, whether in San Diego or Sacramento, or Washington DC or other nations. Positioning themselves geographically, and getting practical strategies to execute assignments that can only come by nurturing a deep, personal relationship with Yahweh. During an intimate conversation with Kerah, God said, “I want you to go to the womb of California.” He reminded her of a dream she had had a year prior, where
he showed her that there was a very specific location where the original intention for the land was to bring forth life for California.
She had googled this “womb” God was talking about and discovered it’s actually in the California Cavern cave in Calaveras county. As it turns out, the historical landmark also has a bridal chamber room, which is also quite prophetic, and strategic. In her research, she found writings of explorer John Muir. One of the things he wrote about that particular land was that it had been disemboweled. This highlighted several things going on. Obviously abortion and miscarriages in the natural, but also in the spiritual: things people are wanting to do or to birth in the spirit that don’t happen. So their assignment for this area was to go and pray over the land and declare life, and for the original intention for California to come.
It’s an assignment that they were chosen and asked to do, and they’ve said, “Yes.” That commitment is just the beginning. For each area God brings to their attention they have to go do research and spiritual mapping. There are so many factors involved, and history to take into account that it can be overwhelming at first. Then you have to draw natural and spiritual parallels, such as the womb room in the dream, that actually begins with a bridal chamber.
Kerah had a vision of the map of California overlaid with a pregnant woman facing toward the rest of the nation. Her belly was exactly where they were called to go—California Cavern and the Sacramento area. She even saw the detail of the belly button and umbilical cord giving life.
Ironically, this area was also where the “motherload” was and people came and saw the gold, then essentially raped and pillaged the land. They are coming to not take from the land, however, but to pour themselves out over it. They’re going to release blessing and restoration, considering their assignment as an honor.
Timing is also a key to fulfilling their land assignment. On the Hebrew calendar Sivan (March/April) is the pregnant month. So Kerah felt like it was very important that we came in sync with the Hebrew calendar to “spy” the land and release the declaration of life. Then they are supposed to come back in the ninth month and give people (especially the women) an opportunity to gather. They felt God say, “I’m going to open it up.” They’ll have more clarity on what that looks like, but around 9-19 they’ll come back to the Sacramento area. (9-19 just happens to be Jenene’s birthday!)
Mandate to Awaken
They began as An Army Rising, which was a declaration and a sound calling a remnant to come out of the hidden places and begin to arise. That was their first forerunning mission six years ago, and now as An Army Reigning, they are forerunning again. People came up and out of hidden places, and they’re still coming.
There is a remnant in every area of these mountains that are going to be leading people, and it’s going to look completely different than it ever has before. God is opening up new revelations, and there are others getting massive downloads, just like the Matrix movie. People are waking up, seeing things that have never been revealed before. We’ve come to a point in history where the Lord is saying, “You’re ready.”
Kerah and Dan, and other forerunners are now experiencing moments where all they can say is, “Oh my gosh, this is everything God showed me. This is everything I saw. And look, it’s happening! They’re doing it.” It’s an unbelievable confirmation. As forerunners, sometimes they have revelations where they think, “Well who’s going to listen to this?” But having obedience and choosing to lay themselves down to speak and do what God told them to do is paying off. People are listening to the sound of heaven they are releasing. It’s magnetic, drawing people who resonate with the frequency and vibration.
There are so many precious ones who are not quite getting it, but they aren’t getting thrown out with the bath water. It’s just a timing issue. Sometimes the Lord will give us people who still have one foot over there, but who want to come along into the new thing God is doing. We don’t want to just cut them off. They still may be the bride, they just haven’t woken up yet. Like a wedding—you really do make a vow to Him, but you also make a vow to what He loves. And He loves those people.
AAR is a safe place for those who are hearing these mature revelations, because they can’t go to the church. Church folk don’t understand, and they fear unfamiliar, so they criticize and ostracize. The reality is that we can’t grow into mature sons if we’re not able to have a place where we can talk about what we see and hear and experience. We need to be able to say, “I don’t know if I’m crazy; I don’t even know if I’m still saved,” without being judged. We need leaders who will say, “Hey, let’s have some coffee, let’s sit down, let’s talk.” We need leaders to encourage us and say, “Look, you’re not crazy. The Lord is calling you into some very mature things and some of it is not going to make sense, but don’t worry, he’s going to bring wisdom.”
As mature ones, we also have a responsibility to those who are walking this new move out who haven’t grown up in the church. They need the foundations set, and to know where the boundaries are. Maybe they’re doing this for the very first time and they’re about to call it quits and be done, and we don’t want that either. We want them to understand that they are on the front line. We need them to keep seeing, keep hearing, and keep sharing these revelations.
Kerah on Being a Forerunner
It’s lonely sometimes. A lot of it isn’t acceptable to talk about…it’s not well received, it’s not common. There have been times where I’ve said, “I don’t know if I have it to dive into this right now.” Some of the things he’s talking to me about or showing me, I’m like, “I don’t know if I can do this.” He’ll remind me, “If you choose to follow My lead, you will continue to move the body forward.” And that’s a different perspective to think about. Because sometimes as a forerunner, you can feel lonely. You can feel like a lot of the things that you’re experiencing in the now are off the grid, and you have to ask Him, “Okay—let me know who to talk to about this.”
So I think the Lord in his goodness is connecting people because He’s saying, “You’re not meant to do this alone.” So even in the craziest things, he’s hearing our heart cries. He says, “I’m going to connect you to somebody who will understand exactly what you’re saying.” I’m amazed by that. I’m seeing it happen and I just feel like that is the goodness of the Lord because I think that maybe in past movements this was the reason it couldn’t be sustained. But I think that this is the time where the pieces and support are in place to sustain the move of God.
It’s amazing, and humbling because you were open to all that he had for you. There’s a balancing act. You have to be very humble because when you start getting in magazines and on stage and thousands of people are watching you. A—friend— this is a part of my becoming a sweeter aroma, a fragrance to Him of a wine that would be fit for this supper. He’s about to come. And I want to be the best wine. But in order to be that, there’s the crushing, the pressing, and we don’t like that in the Christianese Happy Land world.
But what I will say is that all of this is still real too. He’s not boring. It’s the most adventurous life you could ever have. It’s not full of just sorrow and despair. You are truly in the pressing, you are overcoming and you feel that warrior in you coming out. It’s the greatest thing you ever could feel. You are being who He’s called you to be. And those mountain peaks are amazing, you know, but so is the journey. You’ll just experience things that are life changing. You’ll—you’ll see the nature of God. He will give you a new perspective on your authority and your mandate. I think that if people make their focus intimacy, just wanting to know the Lord and his heart, and the mysteries of who He is, that He’ll take you into things as you’re ready.
That’s the cry of my heart. To just be able to release the sound and frequency of heaven in our worship for the purpose of bringing the Kingdom government to the earth. Really learning and training people to walk that out, and connecting and gathering all those who are ready to step into their maturity as true sons of God.
