WAGING SPIRITUAL WARFARE WITH CONFIDENCE


sci-fi-published-at-in

For the wounded, vulnerable, and physically-challenged

Dear Precious sister or brother, are you discouraged? Are You disgusted and think Father God-Jesus has not heard nor answered your prayer? Are you worn out by fighting, crying and discouragement? Are you baffled and perplexed that you’re not only hit with one trial but  two, three or four at a time and you just cannot take one more hit?

I want to let you in on a little secret.on what is going on so you can adequately prepare and strengthen yourself in these daunting times. Many unseen things are happening in the spiritual realm. Satan’s time is short and he is stepping up his plans to “wear down” the saints of God. One of my spiritual mentors and pastors, Augusto Perez, sent us prayer intercessors an urgent prayer request a few years ago. I was taken aback and totally uninformed about the various demonic groups (sorcerers, warlocks and other”called” elite) whose MO is to destroy humanity at every cost. Only God Himself knows what  these ceremonies entailed for us here on planet earth. If you haven’t noticed, the spirits released from the abyss through these evil ceremonies are responsible for the  lawlessness, school shootings, ISIS attacks and a myriad of other atrocities.

You won’t hear this from the average pastor, but this is a reality and a VERY frightening reality for all the inhabitants of the earth. Thankfully, the Child of God abiding in God’s shelter does not have to fear the grave assaults of our nemesis.  Strategic plans to wear us down are  chronic and terminal sicknesses, financial distress,  wayward and rebellious children wreaking havoc on their families, nervous breakdowns,  domestic violence, suicide, irreconcilable differences causing divorces,  and substance abuse destroying families. These attacks are hitting  with vehemence and totality and the worse is yet to come, unless God’s people take seriously their marching orders to wage serious spiritual warfare.

The first place the body of Christ must start at is him/her heart and mouth. What comes out of our mouths is what determines the outcome of our trials and  satan’s attacks. Through brainstorming with  successful and victorious prayer warrior pastors and intercessors, I’ve gleaned some amazing strategies in these demonically-charged times. Many of you may be fearful regarding  the spiritual, financial and economical assaults globally, but now is not the time to shirk and run to our underground bunkers or delete your “Doomsday-prepper” friends” Facebook posts.

The body of Christ needs to awaken to the reality. The words of our mouth are the fruits of our hearts!  Oh my! This was a big one for me. How many years of my Christian life have I uttered words of doom and death on myself. “”Oh, I’ll never get well. I am so deep in debt, I will never get out. Or, that spouse, child or freind will never change” These are all negative declarations. Satan’s minions are standing by, laughing gleefully as you continue to dig yourself deeper into the pit of depression and negativity.

Transform your atmosphere with declarations  of God’s word. Transformation and hope will  become your reality. WOW! Imagine we daughters and sons of God creating our own divine realities by our very words and attitudes. I want to drive this point in…until it sinks in and you start to see how you can indeed by God’s very own fruitful tree…always bearing fruit. But first you’re going to have to admit this fault and ask God’s help to turn it around!

It took me decades to realize the truth…that my own failures and lacks were because of not abiding in the Lord’s very presence and absorbing His precious-life-giving words into my being!! Until we abide in this  divine truth, we will not achieve God’s great victories and soar in His divine purpose!

Did you know that satan has access to Father’s heavenly courts to accuse and malign us daily? Look what he did to poor Job?

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

We tie up God’s hands to  release His blessings and victories when we declare the opposite of what His word tells us! So, for example, we wonder why God has not provided for our rent, food and utilities and we complain and say ” I can’t make my paycheck meet my bills” Satan will use this very statement to God against you.

Your response to your need, “My God provides for ALL my needs according to His riches and glory.”  We must stop griping and mistrusting God if He chooses to answer our prayers at the eleventh hour, perhaps to test us to see if we really do believe He will come through. He tests us often to see if we will trust and obey, so be careful little mouths what you say because satan’s  spirits thrive and grow in the atmosphere of  complaining, resentment and fear. .

Let us also remember that the moment that we decided to serve and worship our Lord, we have enlisted in God’s army and it will be a journey of continual warfare because  satan wants to kill, steal and/or destroy us. Psalm 34:19,  Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the lord delivers him from them all.

We will also have to endure a “wilderness period” for growing in power and trust. These are necessary for us to reach our highest potential. As we grow in Christ, we must learn to be disciplined and consistent in our declarations so that God’s word becomes a part of us. Even great pastors, teachers and worship leaders can fall or get weak if they do not daily abide in God’s presence and word.  The more we read, study and meditate in God’s word, the more easily it will come our through our mouth as our powerfully-wielded weapon of spiritual warfare! There is no other way around it.  Make daily mediation and memorization of God’s word with Holy Spirits revelation  and you will see amazing results in your faith walk!

Some of you may have problems with memorization, but print out your power scriptures around your house or work areas. Speak them out loud. If you have health issues, look up and mediate on healing scriptures. If you are abandoned, isolated or been abused, look up scriptures of restoration. If you have financial lack, seek scriptures about God’s miraculous provision.

Many of us came from backgrounds of sever emotional and/or physical trauma,, chronic health crisis, loss, poverty, shame-body image issues, family dysfunctional, parental neglect. It often takes much longer for us to  retrain our minds. This is where Holy Spirit comes in, compassionate counseling and maybe even deliverance. God created our bodies and minds to heal from the greatest traumas.

Dr Caroline Leaf, a brain scientist, teaches about how we can be transformed to the  beautiful, divine person God created us to be. We can be transformed by the renewing of our minds in Christ! Rom 12:2. For some of us with great wounds and traumas to address,  maintaining emotional  stability and joy can be very difficult, especially if we are isolated or ill. Here is where the body of Christ and compassionate counselors need to step in. When even these fail, we can look to Holy Spirit, our comforter, teacher and best freind. Being so isolated and challenged for over eight years with Dystonia, I have found great comfort in  resting in the presence of The holy Spirit!

Print out  your special verses and post them on your mirrors, refrigerator and doors. Keep worship music going all day if you can. DO NOT declare your infirmities of struggles as permanent. It is Father’s will for you to be whole. Even if you are  weary, heart-broken, or  disgusted,  try to avoid verbalizing out loud how you feel.

When you spend time in Father’s word, ask Holy Spirit to guide you on verses that will be your warfare prayer. DECLARE your special verses each day OUT loud because in our verbal declaration is our power. Abba God never lies and is never wrong. If our lives are amiss it’s because we are doing something wrong.  I’ve wasted many years as his daughter complaining and allowing depression to hinder my walk. I still struggle daily with pain & staggering fatigue, but I declare that I’m more than a conqueror and I can DO all things through Christ who strengthens me! I must daily declare my victory.
 My prayer  is that the following scripture verses will release you into your calling as an overcomer!
 Isaiah 62:3
The LORD will hold you in his hand for all to see–a splendid crown in the hand of God.

Fear not you are more than a conqueror because Jesus has already victored over our adversary and all his minions. Rom 8:37

IPhil 4:19   But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 13:5
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Psalm 37:25
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

Psalm 34:19

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Psalm 91

The COVENANT PRAYER-SONG

Psalm  68:4-6

4Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts, Whose name is the LORD, and exult before Him. 5A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation. 6God makes a home for the lonely; He leads out the prisoners into prosperity, Only the rebellious dwell in a parched land.…

Rev  12:11

They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Heb 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”[a]

GIANTS WILL FALL


He who has an ear…let him hear. This message is for the church, the Bride of Christ whom God has already supplied all ability, protection and provision.

Our media has portrayed great worldwide upheaval. Fear engulfs even God’s people when they allow themselves to be overwhelmed by  work, house  obligations and physical challenges.  I’m wont to fall prey to fear pangs, but despite all the myriad tangible and spiritual assaults, Abba Yahweh has placed us in the world to be salt and light.  His great promises and the Biblical testimonies of our great patriarchs and matriarchs prove His word. Several of my favorites are Joseph, Moses, Elijah and David. In times of the weight of fear and anxiety, I reread shepherd David’s account of his great victory against behemoth Goliath.

The Philistines camped against the Israelite sending their giant, Goliath to intimidate and mock.

“Why have you come out in line for battle? ” he chided. “Choose a man for yourself and let him come down to me. I defy the armies  of Israel this day. ”

Saul and the whole Israelite armies trembled. Imagine the atmosphere of that scenario. After all the great miracle God did for the Israelite after they left Pharaoh’s captivity, they forgot and let fear take them over.  Meanwhile,  David’s father, Jesse had sent David down to bring food to his older brothers  enlisted in the army. David heard the giant Philistine’s boasts as he presented himself to the Israeli  commanders day after day.

Surveying the Giant’s audacity, David asked incredulously,   “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should dare to defy the armies of the living God?!”

David’s words were reported to Saul and Saul  called for him. As the story goes, David killed Goliath with only his stone and slingshot. I don’t believe David had an inkling of doubt that he would be unable to take down such a large foe. David walked in full confidence and authority in God’s ability to overcome Israels’ enemy.

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind, a mind to oppose all fears, doubts and failure and the church must walk in that same power, confidence and authority as young David did so long ago. God’s  empowerment has not changed despite some Christian denominations who believe that  miracles were for that time. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and  time and space are no limitations to the great I AM!

Time and time again, the Bible depicts with great authority, the victories our Biblical forefather’s tasted. Moses speech was an impediment to him, but he accepted the challenge God set before him to lead the Israelite s from their captivity.  Though Moses, foe, Pharaoh was obstinate, Moses continued in obedience despite the calamity and suffering that came against the Egyptians.

Most of the church today looks on and bemoans the chaos and disaster occurring on our planet  for the most part, we passive  onlookers, rather than offensive warriors opposing Satan’s  global assaults. We should be like David, boldly coming against our uncircumcised infidel opponents with an authority and certainty that God’s goodness, restoration and salvation shall overcome and prevail! I see the church acquiescing and cowering regarding demonically orchestrated events.

Psalm 91:7 says that a thousand shall fall, ten thousand at your right hand, yet it shall not come near you.

Remember when the deadly plagues  fell upon the Egyptians because Pharaoh would not let the people go. The plagues continued to come. The final and most devastating was the death of the first-born. But God’s divine protection was upon His people for he provided a covering, the blood that was to be painted on the door lintels. Today, Jesus blood is the protection as we apply it to all dangerous situations…if we cover our dwellings with it. Many of God’s people are ignorant and perish because they are not aware of His eternal providence and provision.

Again and again, we hear of people ask, “Why did God allow the World Trade Center buildings to be attacked?” Why did God allow the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan.” Well, duh…did any of us plead the blood of Jesus  over these?

I am studying an amazing book on Psalm 91, authored by Peggy Joyce Ruth. She teaches verse by verse the  supernatural and all-encompassing protection as well as  testimonies of countless people of faith who evaded a myriad of dangerous circumstances through standing on Psalm 91’s promises. The Bride of Christ and the Jews can enjoy this very same blessing today if they receive and believe.

Our God is also a God of second chances and occasional changes His mind in cases of true repentance and weeping.  King Hezekiah is my favorite example of such a trust.  He had fallen to a serious illness and the prophet Isaiah told him to set his house in order for he would not recover  King Hezekiah could not accept this and set his eyes on God, praying that God would allow him to live. God was so moved by his tears and prayer that He added 15 years to his life and also saved the city from the  King of Assyria! God does hear our faith-filled and powerful prayers and I know it is within every child of God to walk in God’s power and authority.

god is lifting me to a new place of faith and I’ve made it a bedtime habit lately to set my thoughts and worship on my gracious  Abba Yahweh who’s provided a warm bed, food, clothing, a wonderful husband and great country. I plead the blood of Jesus over America, Israel, the awakening of the church, protection from demonic nuclear assaults, plague, EMP blasts and a host of other catastrophes.

I remember years ago moaning to my old pastor about all the evils of the  world.  I was offended by his  response ,”Don’t curse the darkness. Light a candle.” Today I see why he said it. To often we accept all prophecies or even the magnitude of them as written in stone, but our God is gracious even in judgment. He loves His people and doesn’t want one person to perish without Him.  If we repent and turn away, He wants to heal our land. When will we get it?

If every child of God wept in anguish over our lost generation and spiritual darkness, God will help us to turn the Titanic around! It is still not too late, but we have little time. Let the church start praying and weeping with the same  heart as pastor  David Wilkerson of Manhattan Church less events would destroy.  There is an increasing joy and confidence each day as I pray with other brothers and sisters in God’s power and authority against the principalities of darkness. .

I encourage you, my friend to start reading and applying God’s great provision and see what He will make of you!
