Let’s pray!
“Father God in heaven, I come to you now, and ask that You would forgive me. I choose to believe, that You raised Jesus from the dead, and Lord Jesus, I receive You now. Please come into my life, and fill me with Your presence, plan, and purpose, that I am created to live. Fill me with Your love, and may I obey, and love all those You place in my path, Amen.’

Greater than the Universe!

Big God!
Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
Many years ago, I was at home in worship, and I was praying in other tongues listening to a Phil Driscoll tape. It was night, and I went out on the back deck, and found a flashlight and looked up at the stars, and turned it on, (while the worship tape was blaring really loudly, ‘I exalt thee’ as only Phil Driscoll can sing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQhSHIYcKQM ). My science engineering mind kicked in, and like a child, I thought about that beam of light headed off into space, at over 186,000 miles per second. I thought about how in one second, that beam travelled 186,000 miles, and in two, why it would double that…
Think how far it would travel in a minute? An hour? A day? A month and a year?
In physics, we were taught that distances between galaxies in the universe, were measured in light years, and that galaxies we can see on a clear night, are actually over 100 million light years away from earth. I thought about the power of some of these stars, that dwarf our sun being 100 times bigger, or even 1000! I thought about the awesome power of some of those stars, and how incredibly powerful they must be, as I peered into the starry night. All the while, Phil Driscoll was blaring off the stereo, and suddenly, I was immediately in front of one of those stars, not a vision, I was actually there! I could see it’s blazing light, immense power, and somehow I knew that God had brought me there, for a reason. Behind me, was Father God, in all His glory, His brightness and searing, blinding, light; so much greater than this immense star, that I could not turn and look at Him, lest I die.
Hab 3:4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.
Moses cried out that God show us His glory:
Ex 33:18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
Ex 33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:
That somehow, God had brought me to this place in the universe, faster than the speed of light, and as great as the universe is, He is much, much greater. In fact, somehow, He shielded me from His glory, lest I be destroyed.
It has been said, that a man with an experience, is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.
Fools argue God’s existence, power, ability, love, mercy and glory.
I can never again do so.
While I do not claim to understand the mysteries of the universe, I know this one thing:
All of it was created by an incredibly powerful, almighty God, sovereign, who is far greater than His creation.
People of God have had glimpses of His glory throughout the generations but I heard Benny Hinn comment once on a revelation he had from Is 6, that bears witness to me:
Is 6:1 ¶ In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
Benny saw the throne of God, the living creatures, actually worshipping. Holy to the Father, Holy to the Son, Holy is God’s Spirit, but God caused him to understand why they worshipped.
As they sang and cried their worship, they saw the glory of God. Each time they completed a circle, another facet of the glory of God was revealed to them, so great, that they fell on their faces again, and cried: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts. That this has gone on since creation, and will go on throughout eternity!
Think about the greatness of the universe today. Think about how far 100 million light years actually is! Think about the size and magnificence of some of the galaxies we have discovered.
Now, think about God in His glory! So much greater than any of this!
I used to love to read science fiction books, and grew up watching Star Trek. I had always wondered if there was life on other planets. I mean, God is almighty, so perhaps there are other civilizations yet to be discovered, right?
So, I asked Him about it. One morning in worship, as His presence drew near, I asked Him, ‘Father, have you created life on other planets?’
The intensity of His reply is still with me, when I heard Him say: ‘No, son, I have experienced enough pain on this one.’
Perhaps, in eternity, we will be like Adam, and work with God, to create life on galaxies, and see them created in incredible beauty. Perhaps this is why the strange growth of the video game, Minecraft, among our children and youth. They get to create worlds, and fight evil creatures. That creative nature of God is in every human heart. We are created in His image, to love, to create, to build, to recreate when bad things happen.
Ec 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart,
Jesus has provided access to His very throne of grace, by His shed blood. Nothing is too hard for Him, no matter what your circumstances look like, the One you pray too, is the One who flung the stars into being, set the planets in their orbits, set the galaxies in their place.
2Co 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
2Co 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
2 peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
His divine nature, is Spirit. Spirit is a higher form of substance, than any earthly matter: in fact, the universe did not originate from nothing, but from a higher form of matter, something that the Bible describes as Spirit.
When we believe God’s promises, we literally partake of this divine nature, and the realm of Spirit, comes into our lives, purifying us, delivering us from our earthly desires and lusts, and called us to live in this realm of eternal glory.
Yes, we will see His glory in heaven, but warriors of faith, where the action is, is in seeing His glory, manifest, here in the earth, today!
Believe! Deliberately choose to seek Him in His promises!
Ask Him to reveal His glory, presence, power, love and majesty to you, personally.
This, will change you, forever, and suddenly, you will fully agree with this verse:
Mt 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Mr 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Lu 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
When you honestly experience the glory of God, it is much easier to believe….
Mr 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
This is my prayer today, I pray you pray it with me:
‘Father, Show me Your glory, greatness, love, and majesty! Reveal to me Your awesomeness! Jesus, I choose to come boldly to Your throne today, because Your shed blood has made a way! Holy Spirit, open my eyes, to Your reality, and Your plan, purpose, and eternal destiny upon my life. Cause me to walk out eternal destiny, today, for the sake of Your name and glory, Lord Jesus, Amen!”

Abandon All - I Dare You!

The Word of God is Greater!
1Co 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
Today, in our daily Bible reading, we read Luke 11, and there is the account of Mary, Jesus mother asking to see him, while He is in the middle of teaching and preaching.
This account puts an axe to the root of the false doctrine taught in the Roman Catholic Church where I was raised: ‘The Co-Redemption of Mary, mother of God’. Not every parish teaches this, and I love the Catholic church, and my Christian friends serving there, but Mary, is not God, but is a woman chosen of God, to bring Jesus into the earth
Luke 11: 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

We love Mary, and will love her in heaven!

Yet, she too needed a Saviour (Lu 1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.) for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God:

Jesus is who He says He is, the only way to the Father, and eternal life, God the Son, Second person of the trinity.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

1 Tim 2: 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Ac 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Whether Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, or simply American by God, you must come to Jesus to make heaven. There is no other way to find salvation and eternal life.

No matter how great a person is, or worthy of honor in this life, we are commanded to love God more than any other earthly relationship.
In this case, Jesus was asked to go out and speak with his mother and brothers, and a lady extolled his mom.

Luke 11:27 ¶ And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

While Jesus loved and honored his mom, she is not God, He is and only did the will of our Father in heaven.

His reply, is eternally recorded for us in the written word of God:

Luke 11: 28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Yes, we love, honor, and respect our parents, but there will come a day, when we receive a clear directive from heaven, that our parents have not received. At that point, we need to obey God, not them.

This does not mean that we should ever disrespect or dishonor them, not matter how difficult they may be.

When I became a Christian, my mother, a devout Catholic, who attended mass each morning, disowned me, for leaving the Catholic church. Let’s just say that the next five years attending family gatherings were strained at best.

Yet, despite this, what I experienced was nothing in comparison to what a Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu may experience in coming to Christ. They may be beaten or killed for their profession of faith!

The worst part, is that the very ones orchestrating the persecution, may well be their own family members.

Hear the words of Jesus:

Mark 10: 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

This is not a popular message, but it is the only true message of the cross. Jesus did not call us to come and be blessed (although He does love us indeed and bless us). He calls us to eternal life, and to total allegiance to Himself, a life of radical obedience.

Matt 10: 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Mt 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mr 8:34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Lu 12:22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

There is a cost to following Jesus, and there are times He will speak, and it will take everything you have, to obey:

John 6: 61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

Because of the great value of the call of God; its heavenly rank, privilege, and office being so precious; God does not beg anyone to follow Jesus to receive it.

In fact, He makes it hard….

What price tag can be placed on eternal life?

Lu 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
Lu 14:27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Lu 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Yes, there is a place of great blessing, privilege, and grace upon the church of our Lord Jesus Christ, and many come and enjoy the goose bumps that come from the presence of the Lord, the warm fuzzies that come from the love and presence of the Holy Spirit in our midst. Many see the miracles, the blessings, the joy, and enjoy the worship and upbeat praise. Some come, loving the fellowship, seeing the grace of God upon a people, who honestly endeavor to love, honor, respect, and bless each other, in the love of God. Some see the compassionate outreaches, the food distributions to the poor, the help to the single moms and orphans, the friendships and relationships that are so much better than outside the church.

Yet know this: If you want your life to count for eternity, you have a one on one, personal encounter coming with Jesus.

When that happens, you are either going to abandon all, and follow Him entirely, no compromise, or live in that wobbly place, of unsatisfied desire.

You will know what to do, but if you don’t do it, there is no peace in your heart, and you will at best, be frustrating to live with or be around because you will be angry with yourself, and God.

Pr 19:3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.

When you come face to face with Jesus, and His claims, you are either going to sell out to Him, and obey, or choose your own way in life. If you do, your heart will betray you, and will ‘fretteth against the Lord.’ Another version says, ‘his heart rages against the Lord!’

I like the way author CS Lewis puts it: ‘Christianity has not been tried, and found wanting, it’s been found difficult, and not tried’

You will find, like the singer Andre Crouch said: ‘I thought I had given my all, until I heard Him ask for more…’

How extreme can the call of God be?

Consider the life of the apostle Paul:

He heard God to go preach in Jerusalem. He was warned by a prophet, that if he went, he would be bound, beaten, and imprisoned. While those of less courage, told him not to go, he exclaimed:

Acts 21:10 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.
11 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.
13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.

Well, you can read Acts 21-23 to see the beatings, tumult, imprisonment of Paul in Jerusalem, and most people would think, that he must have missed it for sure.

Yet, what did Jesus say to Paul:

Ac 23:11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.

Whose approval do you want anyway? I live to put a smile of Jesus face, to render to Him, an acceptable recompense for His suffering. He is worthy, and altogether faithful. He has loved me, when I despised myself, and I love Him, unto death if necessary.

Living for Jesus, may not be comfortable, and may well cost you everything.

Some years ago, I attended a worship conference in Ottawa, Ontario featuring a worship leader named Kent Henry. God really touched me there, and for the next three weeks, our pastor allowed me and friend to come into the church, and worship, pretty much day and night, while listening to the 30 or so worship CD’s purchased at the conference. Rich times of fellowship with the Lord, addicted to His presence! I was driving a school bus for the Ottawa Christian School at that time, and I was able to spend the days between runs in worship, and each night til midnight, singing, praying, lost in His glory. Tremendous times. During this time, there was a headline in the local paper, where it was announced that over 800 run away teens, were living on the streets downtown, using a heated walkway for the bus, to sleep in. People were concerned, as these teens were pan handling, and were often unruly at best. During that time of worship, the Lord directed me to go to my pastor, and my employer, and see if I could use my school bus a couple times per week, to go evangelize these youth, and bring them to church. Both the pastor and my employer said yes, as long as we filled the fuel tank after each trip, and cleaned the bus before school. So, off we went, pulling the bus up alongside gangs of youth, shouting ‘want to come to church?’, and it was a blast! Incredible signs, wonders, miracles. Will never forget the impact of that first mid-week service, where a group of older ladies put out sandwiches for the first group of kids, 30 or so tattooed, pierced, and freaky looking teens, and the pastor, circled the chairs in the sanctuary and loved on those kids so personally and intimately in leading them to Christ, and praying for each of them individually, as one by one, they broke down and wept, and poured out their hearts to Jesus, and He met them. Incredibly busy times. For the next nine months, we ran that bus, and followed up with these teens, helping them find homes, shelter, freedom from drugs and prostitution and crack houses. Walking into some very dangerous gang violence situations, and being protected and delivered, repeatedly. We received 833 signed decision cards for Christ for kids that actually rode the bus, and walked to the alter and got saved.

Yet, the original church was mostly middle class suburbia folks, and these wild eyed teens, were not exactly safe. People began to leave the church, because they did not feel their children were safe, and there were intense growing pains, and some very heated moments of fellowship!

Finally, the founding pastor, who had been retired and simply a member of the congregation, announced he was coming out of retirement, and founding another church, and it split the church wide open.

During this time, I was dealing with the illness of my parents, they both contracted lung cancer, and eventually died from it. I was tired. Poured out, cored out, hurting at a level only God truly understood. I had been accused of being a rebel, defiant, unsubmitted to authority, of splitting the church.

So, I took time away from it all to seek the face of Jesus, asking Him for forgiveness, the devil screaming in my mind, that I had missed God, and caused all the devastation I witnessed in the church split.

I moved out to a friend’s farm for a couple of months, he and his wife had raised six children, and serve as missionaries to India. One day, while there, I caught a clip of Rhinhart Bonnke ministering in mass crusade

I was amazed at the masses being moved by the gospel, and I was on my knees weeping in gratefulness, and in intercession for this incredible harvest when suddenly, Jesus spoke to me, as only He can:

“Get off your face! You have not sinned against me! I spoke to you, to go to those teens, and I anointed and sent you. I knew that the church would split before I sent you! Then, He began to weep, and said: ‘I counted the cost before I sent you, but my people do not believe in hell, and I had to have those kids in my kingdom. I had to send you!’

I looked at the brutal cost of this harvest, the death of my parents, my pastor burned out and removed from ministry, close friendships destroyed, even to this day, my home church split!

Yet, Jesus called these ‘acceptable losses’, that He might save some children that had no hope, that He had to have in His kingdom!

I still remember the light, the glory, the gratefulness in the eyes of these teens we fought for. The confrontations with a pimp, to rescue 14-15 year old girls from his brutal sex trade: where are they now?

Walking into crack houses, to find 20-30 kids all passed out on the floor, after partying all night, and leading to the Lord and bringing them to church…

Sometimes we fight for the fatherless, for the Lord is their strong defender…they have no other hope!

Jesus is a man of war, and we are warriors…

Yet, in light of eternity, there is nothing else to do. His love can wreck your heart very deeply…the intensity of His passion for people is a radical thing!

Joh 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

This world needs eternal life, and the love that only Jesus can bring.

Wherever you are, whatever the cost, give your life to Jesus, and seek Him until He answers you, personally.

Whatever He says, no matter how difficult it may appear, DO IT!

When you do, heaven will be on its feet, and you will start making headlines there. Suddenly, angelic appearances, signs, wonders, and miracles become commonplace, as the power of Almighty God begins to bear witness to your obedient life, gift and calling.

Hebrews 11:36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

Heb 11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Perhaps this is your Christian experience: prison, beatings, mockings, and outcast and isolated for the call of God.

He will never leave you nor forsake you, and I too have suffered…

2Th 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

I am praying for you today.

‘Father, for some reading this, they need that Word from heaven, authorizing their radical obedience. Speak to them.

For others, they have heard from You, but have got busy with many other things, refusing the cross, the cost, and the pain. Forgive them, and give them courage to obey, and fully sell out for Jesus, and obey Him into their call.’

Then, there are those, my company. Those of whom the world is not worthy, who have counted the cost, and have obeyed, and have been at best, misunderstood, and shunned from polite company. Many have been beaten, imprisoned, and following You, has cost them everything. For these I pray also, that Jesus, the way, be our waymaker today. Make a way, where there appears to be no way. Truly we have learned that we cannot live on mere bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from your lips master. Speak, and we will obey. Demonstrate Your kingdom today through our lives, with mighty acts of Your power, demonstrations of signs, wonders, and miracles. Grant us the rich presence of Holy Spirit, our, friend, and protect, provide, and promote us, for the sake of the gospel and Your glory, today. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Forward - The Grand Illusion - WE WIN!

We Win!
Some people say: ‘We win, for I read the end of the book’ where the Bible speaks about the new heavens and the new earth. Yet, I believe we don’t have to wait for heaven to see victory in our lives, that we should be experiencing it daily in following Jesus, from faith to faith, strength to strength and glory to glory. It is this mindset of the absolute power of God, and His undefeatable church, that must govern our thinking, before we begin to study spiritual warfare. All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus, and we, His church, in exercising that authority, must expect Him to honor His Word with His power, with corresponding signs, wonders and miracles, honoring our faith, as we come into agreement, and target specific demonic strongholds usurping the rule of the Lord in any region.
Yes, we are called to fight the fight of faith, but a good fight, is one where we win. Not in the sweet bye and bye, but on the ground, while we are still around, here in the earth!
So warrior, before we introduce visions of demonic strongholds, we must keep our mind clear on victory, and who we are in Christ. For though the battle is real, we are called and equipped for it, to win!
1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Though the current godless leaders in the world, think they are impregnable, hear the word of the Lord:
Ps 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:
Their next heartbeat, their next breath is only granted to them as a gift from a longsuffering and merciful God. Though they may appear wealthy and mighty at present, as they rule through demonic power, as their gods are stripped from them, they only have two choices: they will either repent, cry out to Jesus, and find that which money and earthly position and power can never give: eternal life, OR as the actual demon spirit they serve, is displaced, they will have to go will it, and in the end, will receive the same reward as the god they serve: Mt 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
I will describe the actual workings of demonic principalities and powers currently in the United States of America, with the purpose of seeing them exposed, targeted in strategic intercession, and blasted from US soil.
1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
1Co 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
I heard one minister say it this way: when we deal with devils, we need to always remember that they were totally defeated when Jesus rose from the dead. That had they known who Jesus truly was, or why He came, they would not have killed Him. Yet, when the power of God raised Jesus out of death, hell and the grave all the rule, reign and power of every devil and demonic prince was brought to nought. So, whenever you think about the devil, always remember that he is that old ‘brought to nought’ fellow. He is a defeated foe, a usurper, and we have legal right, power, and authority, to blast his encroachments off of our families, communities and nation.
De 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
There is power in agreement, and now, we must enter into faith-filled, fervent, prayer to take this country back!
This, we will do, once again in America, that the United States again arise to her glory, honor, and place as a city on a hill before the throne of God, with freedom, liberty and justice for all. A bright and shining light to the nations of the earth, a beacon of hope and freedom, to all that are oppressed, bound and broken, all over the world.
Again, I feel strongly impressed to begin with an exercise of spiritual caution. Devils are real, and though their power is nothing compared to the power of God, they do have some power. The magicians in Pharaohs’ court, also did signs and wonders, confronted by Moses. The greatest trick of the enemy, is to get us so focused upon Him, that we become like a dog chasing his own tail, a hamster on a treadmill. We are moving fast, but going nowhere.
This is not a battle of intellect, for the devil is a liar and the father of all lies. If we try to reason with him, we can get tripped up, yet when we hold him in the arena of faith, authority, and the glory of God, we win every time: Eph 2: 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Positionally, we are the bride of Christ, hid with Christ in God. Royalty, children of the most High, called to walk in obedience, respect, and honor before our Creator, our Father.
We must keep our eyes upon Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and stay in love, and listening to Him, allowing Holy Spirit to use the Word of God, to keep us on the straight and narrow way, free from ditches on either side of our personal path.
I have seen Christians who are given glimpses of demonic organization and system, become negative, conspiracy minded, fear mongers, constantly speaking about the works of darkness, and actually contributing to glorifying devils, in giving them far greater place in their daily walk with God, than they should.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
In Revelation chapter 2, we see one of the churches had just come through a demonic encounter with a Jezebel spirit.
Jesus did not command nor commission them to dig into nor understand every devilish doctrine, ‘the depths of Satan.’
Rev 2: 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
Rather, Jesus commended them for not being defiled by devilish depths, but to contest and contend spirits of darkness, with His authority and truth.
Phil 4: 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I am convinced that we are to stay pure, anointed, and holy, keeping our thoughts on the nobility, honor, and truth of God’s Word and His kingdom, NOT on devils and the devilish deeds of wicked men.
We should not be amazed at evil, for the nature of satan is to kill, steal and destroy. He rejoices in defilement, filth, and death.
Yes, there are death camps built across the USA. Yes, there are covens, alters of demonic sacrifice attended by world leaders both public, and secret, and Yes, actual demonic sacrifice is being offered up through the abortion clinics of America, empowering demonic principalities to blind the American people.
Yet, if satan could have unleashed his internment plans to annihilate Christians and Jews, he would have already. We are here, walking in power and authority, and because of this, he cannot!
President Obama is not a devil, though in many areas he is operating in an anti-Christ spirit. We wrestle not against flesh and blood. He is not our enemy, the enemy is the enemy. We are to uphold the office of the President in prayer, while standing in faith against abortion, same-sex marriage, Islam, and deception, treachery, and lies in our government.
Love the sinner, hate the sin!
2 Peter 2: 10 ¶ But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
One person said, that when it comes to devils, it is never a power encounter anymore, rather, a truth encounter. The purpose of this book is not to show off how spiritual we are, rather to deliberately alert the Body of Christ to the actual demonic encroachment on US soil, that we might come into agreement in targeted intercession, to take America back from wicked spirits and people, that we see true freedom, liberty and justice for all.
Refuse to be afraid! This is still land of the free, and home of the brave!
2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
1Jo 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
America will be free, only in Jesus, and the kingdom of God, for whom the Son sets free, is free indeed! There will be liberty and joy in the land, because there is no such thing as a spiritual vacuum. In any geographic area, there are actual mind blinding spirits operating, or angels enforcing the kingdom of God, that allow Holy Spirit to move and flow, bringing life and liberty, for where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. As for justice, there cannot be true justice without truth spoken in love, the letter of the law, simply brings compliance by the sword, not joy and freedom. Ask anyone who has ever lived in a fascist, or communist country under a harsh regime. Free people, are responsible people, living willingly morally, under the rule and reign of Jesus!
Want peace in America? It will only occur where the Prince of Peace rules.
Today though, there is a battle to be fought, as kingdom attacks kingdom, so come on warriors, let’s enter into the fray, and fight this fight of faith!
