Beware The Ides of March
Warren David Horak
The Lord gave me a number of powerful direct and indirect prophetic warnings concerning the Ides of March. He was exposing the strategies of the enemy to destroy Christians on a massive scale, this all pivots on what happens on ides of March with falls on the 15th of March every year.
We need to understand the wiles of our enemy and see what the Lord wants us to do to counter these attacks.
As we can see the civil war in the church continuing this word is a very important word for the Body of Christ.
Please forward this to all Christians, Christian business people and Christian leaders.
The Ides of March is actually the 15 March each year. Your only protection is to humble yourself and apply the blood of Jesus while walking in His love and truth.
I had a very disturbing dream about satan’s continued plan to attack and destroy the Christian’s with a specific focus on Christians in business.
Before I had this dream a friend of mine had the following unusual prophetic experience.
While awake she heard my voice in her bedroom saying,
“tell me! tell me, tell me. I need to know.”
In an urgent and loud tone.
She looked around the room for me, but could not find me as she was only hearing my voice. She jumped up and shouted,
“Beware the Ides of March”
This prophetic experience was a warning for me, which was 100% accurate.
Beware the Ides of March in history
The phrase Beware the Ides of March was made famous by the historical assassination of Julius Caesar the emperor of Rome. He was assassinated by his closest fiends and governors in his senate on the Ides (15th) of March.
Ides basically means the 15th day of a month.
The warning first came to me on a personal level; to watch out for the spirit of assassination/ betrayal.
This can happen if a person near us gets offended at us for some reason, as Judas was offended at Jesus and decided to betray Jesus.
The offence which is unforgiveness leads to bitterness and eventually full-blown betrayal. Out of all twelve’s disciples, only one betrayed Jesus, the rest denied Him. Betrayal is when people attack us to bring us down and destroy us in some way. Betrayal is normally prevalent in a divorce or a church split.
When we harbour offence in the spirit of unforgiveness and bitterness, we are subject to fall and betray one another. We must take heed, that we are not used by the enemy to betray and assassinate our leaders or brethren.
Please take this warning seriously especially if you are in leadership. Pray for your leadership team and share this revelation with them.
The date is also important as Ides of March basically is another way of saying the 15th of March.
The month March was named after the Greek god Mars which is the god of war. March is a month of war.
If we stand with love and truth we will overcome the onslaught of the enemy.
I felt this word was a personal word for me and would not be sharing it with the Body of Christ, had the Lord not given me a very alarming dream in 2004.
Ides of March Dream
I was in a large auditorium that was bowl-shaped, that could hold a few thousand people. This was a business conference. There was a phenomenal expectancy in the place as we were waiting for the guest speaker to arrive.
There was a man with a cell phone next to me who was speaking to the security, who was escorting the speaker to the door next to the stage. I could hear him say
“he is about thirty seconds away”.
When he came through the door it was like some famous and respected president had just arrived. He had an entourage of about ten men.
Everyone’s eyes were on him as He walked in. This man was very wealthy and had a lot of respect similar to Warren Buffet (the worlds second richest man) He was here to tell us about the markets.
A well-known preacher was on stage and said jokingly, that “another preacher (who is also well known), had stabbed him in the arm. (The preacher who stabbed him, happens to be his spiritual father)
He then said this business market conference was about the “eyes of March” I immediately thought in the dream that I had seen a sign like that the previous day saying the “eyes” of March.
I thought the newspapers were obviously using it as a pun, as opposed to saying the Ides of March.
But when I heard it, I interpreted it as, “Ides of March”. This man next to me started speaking to all the people around us. I was a bit embarrassed as this was creating quite a stir, as people in the balcony area started whispering about the Ides of March.
We then decided to go over the top of the balcony where there was a wide walkway for us to gather. I stood in a circle of with 40 to 50 brethren and joined hands to pray.
The person next to me, said to the people, let Warren tell you about the Ides of March.
The Blood of the saints used on the satanic altar
I then said,
“the Ides of March is the day when the satanist’s bring the blood to the altar. We must bring the blood of Jesus to counter all the blood sacrifices.”
I then saw a valley filled with blood with islands in the middle, the blood was rising and rising. I then connected this with the vision in the dream another friend of mine’s vision she had in Jerusalem of the blood being poured over the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.
I thought, “we need the blood of Jesus!”
Our understanding is unfolding each year, so I will share some of the key things I have seen.
A warning to Christian business people
The Church is currently going to the “rich elite” in the world and looking to the world to learn concerning their finances and the global markets.
What was very concerning for me is the fact that I was sitting waiting for the “rich elite” to teach me about business and how to make money. I believe that this is a serious warning to the Christian business community at large.
We have our eyes on the world = “eyes of March.” This means we are blinded by riches in world and the way they do things and we cannot see the Lord in the market place. This is mixed with all the blood that has been shed by our slander and strife. These two is what gives us the “eyes of March” which is to see as the world sees.
We are supposed to be learning how to do business from the Father as we are the head and not the tail. We are supposed to lead the world as we tap into our Father’s infinite power and creativity. We are called to build Kingdom business which is based on love and truth. The world’s markets are built on fear and greed. These will collapse as everything will shake, that can shake.
Because our eyes are on the world and not Jesus we have been blinded and are walking straight into the many traps of satan.
These financial traps are set by the spirit of mammon, fear and jezebel.
The Lord showed us recently that there is a covenant between mammon and jezebel that is based on fear. This covenant of fear and intimidation is what the enemy is using to keep Africa and rest of the world in bondage to money and in deep poverty through greed and fear.
We are supposed to lead from the front and not follow the world. The world is supposed to be coming to us to ask us how to do business in these perilous times.
Why then are we going to the tail to learn how to be the head?
Father’s Business versus the Worlds Business
The Father showed me the difference between a business of the world and one of the Kingdom.
The world’s business focuses mainly on the bottom line for the shareholder’s benefit.
Fathers’ Kingdom business focuses mainly on bringing life wherever it goes and blessing all the stakeholders.
We can only bring life when we have died to self and are resurrected in His life. We need to walk in the power of the cross to release His life in the market place.
Because Gods children that are in business are so focused on making money, they have lost sight of God and don’t have time to pray and worship their King.
His yoke is easy and burden is light. If our yoke is not light, we are in sin. As we have not entered His rest Hebrews 3 & 4.
The enemy is setting the following traps:
1. To keep Christians so busy sweating in their businesses that they can’t pray and hear from God and spend time with their families.
2. To choose money and business over God and relationships ie. relationship with family and friends.
3. He plans to frustrate you so that you get discouraged and lose hope. He does this through deals falling through, computers always breaking, sickness in our families, endless red tape issues with tax man and co. etc.
4. Christians copying the worlds business guru’s seven steps to be rich and famous.
5. Wrong motives: Using God to bless ourselves, so-called, “for His kingdom”
6. To trap the business people in excessive debt and financial risk.
This attack is aimed at destroying many Churches and Christians.
Getting our houses and businesses in order
The Lord showed certain business people that the enemy plans to take down many businesses through lack of legal adherence to company laws. Like keeping minutes of companies, tax laws and many other laws that most business people don’t even know about.
Basically our enemy is a legalist and will seek any avenue he can to destroy us.
We need unity amongst the business people and the Church.
We need to build relationships around love and humility which will bring true godly unity.
We need to seek to serve each other as opposed to using each other’s talents and finances for our own self-promotion.
Lawlessness is a mark of the beast
The Lord has shown me that we need to obey the laws of the country and His word alike. As much as we abide in lawlessness we abide with the antichrist spirit. As the time moves on lawlessness will abound more and more. To be the light we need to obey His laws.
2 Thessalonian’s 2:1-11 needs to be studied as this is a warning for the whole church. We need to be obedient to enter His rest and promises. Lawlessness results in darkness and judgements being released. Are we paying all our taxes etc.
The question is; do we love the light or do we love the darkness? This will be demonstrated by our actions in our businesses and relationships.
The second warning is for the Body of Christ in general
The Blood in the eyes and on the enemies altar
While praying over the dream the Lord showed us the following.
Saw people with blood in their eyes. I was taking water and washing their eyes out so that they could see clearly.
The blood in our eyes comes from judging each other, strife, slander and back-biting. As we are caught in the midst of this most bloody Christian civil war we are spiritually murdering each other through our words and thoughts. This blood in our eyes is the blood of Cain who slew his brother because his works were evil and his brothers were good.
This is what causes the “Eyes of March” where we become blinded by our brother’s blood.
We must beware of criticising our brothers and sisters as this is spiritual violence which increases the blood of the satanists sacrifice and will be included with all the other blood offered on the altar every 15th of March.
We must stop sharing the slander
We must be aware of slanderous posts on Facebook and text messages in Whatsapp and emails etc. and any other social media where slander and back-biting abound. If someone sends you one of those emails – you could forward them the link to this article.
The blood is rising! As we see more and more casualties and strife in the Church so the blood increases adding to the power in the enemies camp which will be released against us in the coming dark season.
The blood that was flowing was and is being used against us was actually the blood from the Body of Christ. This has huge implications as the power of an altar is based on the power of the sacrifice, the greater cost of the sacrifice; the greater the satanic power that is released.
There can be no more powerful sacrifice than that of our own brothers spiritual blood.
Honouring our spiritual father’s and mother’s
Father is going to release the spirit of the Elijah at this time. This is turning of the hearts of the father to the children the children’s hearts to the fathers.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. Malachi 4:5-6
The Lord has warned me over and over to honour my spiritual parents. If we do, then we will live long and our lives will be blessed. If we don’t we will die early. Our spiritual mother is the denomination we were saved through. Our spiritual fathers are those who were or are still are our pastors and leaders.
We need to repent from criticising the church at large and start to love her and lay our lives down for her. No matter how sick the Church is Jesus loves her dearly. We must treat her with the deepest respect as she is His Queen and Bride.
Even though many of us have been called out of the formal structures we are still are connected to our brethren in these structures. We must be careful how we handle His bride.
He said to me that “I must not slap His bride”. He takes this personally.
We must love the Church, warts and all. We must judge ourselves and not His Church. Jesus wants us to love His church even though she is sick and diseased, we need to see with His eyes to love, hope and faith.
If we really love His Church then we will believe that all things are possible for Him and that He will raise her up as His glorious Bride.
The blood and love of Jesus our only protection
Our only hope of protection is the blood of Jesus and walking in love. In order to have the blood of Jesus cover us and protect us, we need to apply the blood through true repentance and walking in love.
Praying against the demonic attack and use of this blood will not be enough.
He has made it very clear that the only way to deal with the sin of slander which is murder in the church is to remove the enemies claim over this blood.
The first step is confessing our sin
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:7-10
True repentance is not just confessing our sins but walking in the light. Only as we walk in the daily confession of our sins are we covered by His blood.
We must confess our sins and those of our brethren to be forgiven so that the enemies plans are neutralised. We must also forgive and forget so we can be forgiven.
We really need to seek His light in all areas of our lives as His light comes darkness flees, as the enemy now has no legal access to our lives.
We must truly seek to have unoffendable hearts as it is an offence that is not dealt with that will lead us to shed blood and betray one another.
The spirit of betrayal is rooted in fear, unbelief and offence. We can see this clearly in Judas’ life. To make sure we don’t betray someone we need to abide in love taking no offences and forgiving quickly and not letting the sun go down on our anger as the word says.
Protect your relationships
The enemy will try to get us to sacrifice a relationship for a short-term gain of our own way, our own money, our own power and our own name this is how betrayal happens.
We need to guard all our relationships continually. Watch out for offences these will open the door to betrayal. Let’s pray over all our relationships and make sure we have no outstanding issues for the enemy to use against us.
If someone has something against you then you need to go to them and make right before you bring your offering to the Lord. Matthew 5:23
Let us now walk in love, for love never, never never fails!
Actions we can take now to overcome and walk in victory
1. To confess and repent of all our unrighteous judgement, strife, slander towards our brothers in the Body of Christ.
2. To confess and repent on behalf of all our brethren in the Body of Christ for their unrighteous judgement, strife and slander.
3. To ask Father to help us walk in His love towards all others that we know.
4. To confess and repent for fear, greed, stress, and anxiety and betrayal in our lives.
5. To come under the power of the blood covenant that we have. See prayer below – Communion. See prayer below
6. To forward this to all Christians we know.
Partaking of the Body and Blood of the New Covenant with Jesus
Prayer and Proclamation
1 Corinthians 11:23-33
It is through His blood and flesh that You paid for everything.
Through the works of the cross, we have a New Covenant with Jesus established on better promises than the old covenant. Hebrews 8:6; John 6:53; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
I draw near to You through the power of Your precious blood.
“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,

I can only enter the Holy of Holies through Your blood.
I come to You to wash me clean in your blood
“…If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”
Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!”
Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean…” John 13:8-10
I come now to You to wash me in Your three blood baths. I surrender my past sins, mistakes, failures, losses, wounds and pain to You. Please wash me now with Your precious blood Jesus. Selah!!
Note: Now wait here with Your High Priest in His presence, until He sets your free and leads you forward in heaven. Always allow Jesus Your Bridegroom to lead in the heavenly dance.

Help me to Abide in You, Your Word and Love through the power of Your blood.
Help me to walk in the light and fellowship with You, confessing my sins, as I walk in Your light.
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:5-10
Your Word is Your flesh and Your blood is Your righteousness of life. This is a covenant of mercy! Son of David, I trust in Your sure mercies in my life.
I eat Your flesh and drink Your blood now; by believing in Your flesh and blood and terms and promises of this blood covenant.
Through divine impartation of Your flesh(Your Body and Your Word), You make my ways and thoughts righteous by changing my heart and my ways into Your ways of being and doing what is right.
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you” John 6:53.
Your very life and love is in Your flesh and blood Jesus. Your very DNA is in Your blood. I receive Your heavenly DNA, Your Divine Nature into my being.
In John 6:56 it is written, He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. I now abide in You by faith in the power of Your flesh and blood. Your flesh and blood cause me to bear much fruit through abiding in You.
By the wounds in Your flesh, I am healed from all wounding and sickness according to 1 Peter 2:24.
By the tearing of Your flesh, the veils of my flesh/sin are removed and broken over my life. You tear all the veils of the flesh as I turn to You Holy Spirit.
My old man/all the flesh(my sinful nature) and all the bloodline iniquities and curses have been crucified/killed with You on the cross! It is no longer I who live, but You(Christ, Messiah, the Anointed One) Who lives Your life in me and through me – Galatians 2:20.
A Covenant of Victory and life through Your Body and Blood
I praise You for the victory in Your word!
Ephesians 1:7 – Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the grip of the devil(accuser) and all the power of darkness.
Acts 20:28 – Through the blood of Jesus I have been bought with a price. I now belong to Jesus, my redeemer.

“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” Colossians 1:13-14
No accusation can overcome the blood of Jesus. The Blood overcomes all my accusers, including the devil himself.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death” Revelation 12:11
I now, through the power of the blood, words and Spirit of the new covenant with Jesus; tear down, bind, cancel, renounce each and every unrighteous covenant and agreement made against me, for me, and by me. I bring each of these agreements and covenants into submission to the obedience of Christ. I hand each one to You, Jesus, for righteous judgement.
Therefore, satan you have no place in me and no power over me.
I declare and decree that every weapon formed against me, that is; spirit, thought, word, charge, claim, judgement, indictment, summons, document, accusation, condemnation, slander, action, curse, plan, scheme, trap, unholy soul tie, spell, covenant of death, lie, deception, reasoning, feeling, sin, iniquity, infirmity and sickness, poverty, lack, debt is destroyed through the power of the flesh and blood of Jesus, in the new covenant, the full finished work of the cross.
For my righteousness, testimony and life is from You and You justify me and redeem me from the curse – Is 54:17, Galatians 3:13.
I have confessed my sins and mistakes to you, I am now washed made righteous by Your blood.
For its written, “having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it” Colossians 2:14-15.
You paid the price in full! For all my sin, sickness and debt! You took the curse for me; you took all my bloodline curses and iniquities once and for all.
I declare that You are my righteousness!
What shall I say to these things? If God is for me who can be against me! If God has justified then who can bring a charge against me?
Thank You, Abba, that these forces of hell, have no power over me and my house through the cross of Christ. By the power of Your Holy Spirit, You now destroy all darkness and curses coming against us.
I have the victory through the cross!! Praise You Jesus! Every agreement and covenant with hell is now broken. I see these walls of the enemy (made up of thoughts, words, deeds of fear, lust and pride) are coming down like the walls of Jericho.
I command every weapon formed against me to fall now. I now disarm the enemy through the Blood and Word of Jesus.
I have a better covenant
I thank You Lord for a deeper revelation of the covenant I have with You. A better covenant established on better promises, by the Blood of the Lamb, Gods own Son – Hebrews 8:6.
A covenant of Sonship, Friendship, Fellowship and Betrothal (marriage).
A covenant of Love, sure mercies, overflowing abundance, forgiveness, righteousness, life, peace, joy and amazing grace.
A covenant of blessings, fruitfulness, provision, healing and divine health.
A covenant of divine victory and authority over the enemy, protection, the supernatural, power, miracles, great exploits, signs and wonders.
This blood covenant with You is stronger and higher than all satanic covenants it breaks, destroys and overcomes all false covenants of darkness.
This covenant breaks the covenant of fear between jezebel and mammon over my life. You have set me financially free to serve You as my sole provider.
I am Your son with a covenant of love, with You my Abba Father. Nothing and no one can stop me walking in Your will and inheritance for my life.
I am now entering my inheritance in You which is Intimacy with You, Abundant overflowing life!
All my needs, bills, debts and sins are Paid in FULL by You Jesus! Yes, it’s paid for!
Praise Jesus, You paid for everything!! I believe!
Over to you, have you experienced the onslaught of strife and slander? Have you overcome yet?
